The Mother of Dragons vs The Goddess of Dragons

After watching the last episode of "Game of Thrones" for this season, I had an interesting idea.  What if our Goddess of Dragons and the "Game's" Mother of Dragons got into a battle?  That is a good question.  Lets take a look at the two of them starting with:

Our Goddess of Dragons.  Her name is Longmu.  Her story starts off simple enough;  she was born in 290 BC and the second daughter of Wen Tianrui.  Her home is in the Teng County near the Xi River.  One day she came across a large smooth egg that she initially thought was a stone.  It hatches into five snake-like creatures.  She loves and cares for them until they grow into large dragons.  They turn out to be a luck changer for her since her family is quite a poor one.  These dragons are good swimmers and they help her hunt for fish that feed her family.  Soon, Longmu has her dragons create rain (because in China, they can do this) to end the long suffering drought that plagues her village.

Her fame goes far and wide until it reaches to the ears of the Emporer.  He needs her help and sends out his finest jades and gold to summon her to his palace.  Unfortuneatly, now she is old, frail and unable to travel.  Her dragons (knowing that she can't go) managed to keep her in her village and protect her until she passes away.  The dragons were greatly saddened by her death and in their grief turned into humans.  They became five great scholars until they too vanish.  Since then she has been known as the Goddess of Dragons and makes sure that all of China is well cared for.  She is in the Nether Realm now but that is a different story.

Now, let's look at the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen.  Her story is not that simple so I'll try and keep it short.  She and her brother have lived in exile at the estate of Magister Illyrio Mopatis.  She forced to marry Khal Drogo but is given three dragon eggs as a wedding gift.  Luckily, she and her husband learn to love eachother and she becomes pregnant with his child.  This was a happy time cut short when she loses them both.  During her husband's cremation, she walks into the fire where she sets the dragon eggs.  They hatch and they are now her children/protectors.

She loves and cares for her dragons just as any mother would.  As they grew in a few short years, so did her power.  Soon she became a great queen who ruled with compassion, justice and love.   She has big plans for the world, that unfortuneatly not everyone agrees with.  Many try to kill her just as many join forces with her.  Until one of her dragons come to save her and take her away from those who mean her harm.  Her story has yet to end (I'm not sure if it does) but we will know more in future episodes of "Game of Thrones". 

So there you have it.  Two very beautiful, strong and compassionate woman who rule over dragons and lands in their own special way.  Honestly, I don't think either of these woman would get into a battle.  If anything I think they would become allies.  There are too many similarities between the two.  I just named a couple of them.  What do you (the public) think?  Do you think they will be friends?  Do you see the similarities/differences between the two?  Please comment and tell me what you think.

  1. What is this nether realm that Longmu resides in? I can't find it anywhere else.
