Where did Drogon take Daenerys?

My answer to the question "Where did Drogon take Daenerys?":

It’s a metaphor just like many other things in Season 8. One very obvious being the white horse in a burned Kings Landing which seemed to appear there for Arya. Suddenly in the next scene in the next episode, Arya is without the horse. The writers put that little religious bit there for the audience to get chilly and excited.
The other metaphore (and the most powerful looking scene in Season 8) was when Daenerys in episode 6 who looked as if she had wings. It was a strong reminder of the Disney character Maleficent. Both Daenerys and Maleficent could be one and the same? Both are dragon queens.
This is what the image resembled, because it was revealed to us that Daenerys is the antagonist and had just destroyed Kings Landing, killing many innocent people. It’s basically telling us all that Dany was the true dark one here.
Drogon felt duty bound to deal with his mother’s body. As a Mother of Dragons, she meant so much to him throughout his life. Drogon was always able to understand Dany like there was a real mother-child connection. In a way there might’ve been telepathy also like close loved ones experience sometimes, but not everyone does, and this is how Drogon and Dany came across.
So where did Drogon take dead queen Daenerys? This was another metaphor. Some might say that Drogon just took her to Old Valyria. Perhaps there’s more to it. Like with all works of fiction focused on genres fantasy, sci-fi and horror, once the main evil characters have died, the ones who supported them just leave and don’t come back. I believe that, going by the world of Ice and Fire itself, Daenerys brought the Long Night to Westeros and Kings Landing using fire. Her death and Drogon taking her far away East, is a complete end of the supernatural war against humanity. The Night King was one threat, and Daenerys was another.

Dating ET's

Hi, this is Rayne and I'm back as co-admin of She Wolf Night. I want to start off by posting something light hearted and weird. Dating Extra Terrestrials! I know but it's my first ever post for 16 months on this blog, and I often write out there stuff. I couldn't post this on my second blog Storm Valkyrie, which is basically about spiritual matters and Mother Nature. I copied and pasted this from my entry on Quora, which has become buried under the piles of posts.

In the Star Trek universe, there are so many inter galactic relationships even though Captain Janeway had a go at Harry Kim for having sex with an alien. The discussion centred around sex with aliens introducing a disease or cause terrible damage on DNA. It’s a protocol ignored by the entire Star Treks.

Aliens would come from a different world culture. If you were going out with a Klingon, you may have to respect their traits even though it comes across as strange. If you wanted to date a human/humanoid alien from a different world (like Arda from the “Lord of the Rings” world or Planetos from “A Song of Ice and Fire” world) then no reason why precautions shouldn’t still be taken. Who knows what DNA will be passed if someone ended up starting a family with an alien.

News on the blog

Wolf Girl Night here.
I've returned from holiday and had a howling of a time.
While gone, I was thinking of opening a different blog under another name, and handing this one over to the original owner, and then I asked. She said that she's fine with that.
So in the following few days or weeks, the blog will be returned to Rayne. I will keep you posted as to what my new blog is when its ready.
I've enjoyed posting on here for over a year now and I've been filling the blog with film reviews most of the time. Before that it was neither about film reviews or werewolves, but about myths and some of her own creative writing. I made it into a werewolf/film review blog.

Howls ^^

Robots in Greek myth

Silver and gold dogs with the daughter of King Alcinous 

The animated sci-fi series Ulysses 31 is based on Greek mythology but set in the far distant future, when characters are space travelling and there are plenty of robots. It wasn't quite far off from real Greek mythology, as there are a load of robots in there!
Robots are also automatons and the word Automaton comes from Greek and actually by Homer. The Greek god named Haphaestus was a fire god as well as a metal worker and a blacksmith. He created tools and weapons and many robotics, which include:

Golden Tripods that were automatically moved around Olympus on wheels.
Kyon Khryseos was a dog made entirely of gold and was a robot who guarded Zeus during his childhood on Crete. When Zeus reached adulthood, he sent the golden dog into the stars that became the constellation Canis Major.
Bronze bulls at the kingdom of Aeetes.
Fire breathing mechanical horses that were called the Cabeirian.
Khryseos and Argyeos The metallic guard dogs of the palace of King Alcinous. One dog was made of solid silver and the other dog was made of solid gold.
Talos, made of bronze. A giant crafted into the shape of a man who was the protector of Crete.
Kourai Khrysai who were also called The Golden Maidens of Haphaestus. They were beautiful and each had their own intelligence. They were helpers in the palace of their maker and learned various crafts and skills.
The Caledones more women robots. Originally they were created as golden statues, then given voices and the ability of movement. As life was given to each of them, the Caledones were then capable of breeding with humans.
Pandora was interpreted as the "first woman" but she was really one of the automatons in Greek myth. She was a beautiful robot who was crafted by Haphaestus. Pandora was made the owner of a weapon in the shape of a jar that was later called "Pandora's Box".
