"Zaldrīzes buzdari iksos daor. “A dragon is not a slave.” Of note here: the [Valyrian] word for dragon, zaldrīzes.

The Location of their eternal embrace was just 25 miles south of Verona, the city where Shakespeare’s love story Romeo and Juliet was set.
This is incredibly creepy & cool at the same time.
