You wanna fucking BET?!?
In stead of relying on a shaky only-by-ear-head-canon (I haven't read the World book yet), I actually searched and found:
The Andals made their mark on Dorne, as they did on all Westeros south of the Neck.
The stony Dornish [as the Daynes] have the most in common with those north of the mountains and are the least touched by Rhoynish custom.
I do have an excellent memory, good ser! The latter seems to indicate that mix I mentioned, and does not rule out the more tolerant view of paramours previously discussed. My point stands.
I couldn't find anything on Martells and Daynes growing up together right now, but I'll have another look later (or else it will just bug the hell out of me, and I'm a whole book away in my reread!).
Exactly! If it was a mere, but infinately cool, ancestral sword it would probably not have all this attached to it. An office would reasonably be expected to intail more than just being an excellent knight, anyone could be an excellent knight. But why share more than you have to? It also helps create a legend!
Puns, haha! Sometimes puns almost takes over my brain, and I can't think without making at least two per sentence! No need to apologise
And the reason why everybody loves the Daynes! Seems to be one of the most popular Houses.
I'm in the camp who believe the Daynes played a crutial role in ending the LN, thus that the office holds information relating to this. Possibly details otherwise unknown. And a nice sprinkeling of magic as well; but maybe something that will only kick in when needed - aka during another Long Night?
