A: dragons motherfucker
B: history is not purely ruled by fear
Ok so you're making a decent case for why Danaerys has been forced into Machiavellian rule by terror, and you've even made the reasonable observation that *all her allies betrayed her* to push her to do it. Good. So why is *she* the villain?
But it's *male* showrunners who declared them the Good Guys to do so
Varys, for instance, traitorous worm. Tried to kill his queen (for the second time!) the MOMENT he found Targaryen blood attached to a penis. Fuck him.
So why don't you praise it?
But if "it's just Machiavellian amorality," you gotta reckon with why she's punished in the story for what other (mostly male) characters *put her into*.
Can't do both.
She needs to sleep eventually.
