Memory and the Past Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

As Daenerys Targaryen rose to her feet, her black hissed, pale smoke venting from its mouth and nostrils. The other two pulled away from her breasts and added their voices to the call, translucent wings unfolding and stirring the air, and for the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive with the music of dragons. (73 Dany 10.60)

WHOA. Ahem. We mean, at the end of this book, we see the return of something historical that everyone thought was gone for good. (It's an interesting parallel to the Prologue and first Bran chapter, where we see the Others and a direwolf for the first time in a long time, too.)
