Is it weird that I thought about George R. R. Martin, who hasn't finished the book series "Game of Thrones," thus forcing everyone to say farewell to a Winter that will never come? XD

I love how it shows the lady returning to the top of the tree to force back the dragons of winter, who had caused much harm to those below. Well, except the more peaceful ones. But they know when to go home. These guys don't.
