Awesome news! Mike S. Miller has been posting some previews of his work for the upcoming Mystery Knight graphic novel adaptation. This one is a fantastic glimpse of John the Fiddler’s vision of Dunk as a Kingsguard:

He gave Dunk an enigmatic smile. “I dreamed of you, Ser Duncan. Before I even met you. When I saw you on the road, I knew your face at once. It was as if we were old friends.”Dunk had the strangest feeling then, as if he had lived this all before. I dreamed of you, he said. My dreams are not like yours, Ser Duncan. Mine are true. “You dreamed of me?” he said, in a voice made thick by wine. “What sort of dream?”"Why," the Fiddler said, "I dreamed that you were all in white from head to heel, with a long pale cloak flowing from those broad shoulders. You were a White Sword, ser, a Sworn Brother of the Kingsguard, the greatest knight in all the Seven Kingdoms, and you lived for no other purpose but to guard and serve and please your king." He put a hand on Dunk’s shoulder. "You have dreamed the same dream, I know you have."He had, it was true. The first time the old man let me hold his sword. “Every boy dreams of serving in the Kingsguard.”"Only seven boys grow up to wear the white cloak, though. Would it please you to be one of them?""Me?" Dunk shrugged away the lordling’s hand, which had begun to knead his shoulder. "It might. Or not." The knights of the Kingsguard served for life, and swore to take no wife and hold no lands. I might find Tanselle again someday. Why shouldn’t I have a wife, and sons? “It makes no matter what I dream. Only a king can make a Kingsguard knight.”"I suppose that means I’ll have to take the throne, then. I would much rather be teaching you to fiddle."

I am here to remind all that Oberyn Martell, whilst being a sexy mo fo and loving paramour, also was smart as hell, forging SIX maester chains before he got FUCKING BORED and went on to form his own mercenary company.

During this time he fathered a half dozen bastards, but instead of abandoning them, he took responsibility and raised them to defend themselves and allowed them all an independence most fathers in Westeros would never allow their children, let alone daughters.

He was incredibly close to his sister and after her death attempted to raise the entire country of Dorne up around Viserys to overthrow Robert. Unable to do this, he never gave up the hope he’d one day avenge the atrocities committed against his sister and her children.

In short, too much heart was always Oberyn’s problem.

rhaegar targaryen strikes me as the kind of guy who would always stumble upon a harp at parties and be like “oh wow how did THAT get there? i actually play a little” and then start playing the bear and the maiden fair or something and lyanna and cersei are all “oooh rhaegar” while robert and jaime mope at the back of the room like “what a douche, i could do that if i tried “

Grey was the color of the silent sisters, the handmaidens of the Stranger. Brienne felt a shiver climb her spine. Stoneheart.
