Yeah I still haven't finished Fire and Blood for pretty much that reason. It's just so wistfully sad that near every dragon dies in this conflict that only begins because Viserys I was an idiot and Alicent one of the worst people ever. Reading through the book made me feel practically nostalgic for Jaehaerys' reign, with how peaceful and prosperous it was for the most part, and the dynasty and dragons growing in such number, then shortly after it all goes to shit.I got to the Dance of Dragons part of Fire and Blood.
One of the coolest things about the world of Ice and Fire is the way dragons are treated which has sorta ruined the ways I see dragons in other media. In other fantasy you'll see a dragon and it's, like, whatever but in this world they're treated like how they should be seen, like fucking nukes. Which is why this whole section of the book is so sad because this will be the point where dragons start dying off in mass and which will bring use to the period where the current books are set, a dragonless world where magic is dying off.
You wanna slap reasons into all of these fools as they're dumb ass family drama kills off such amazing creatures.
