Zaldrīzes buzdari iksos daor.  
Still not over Daenerys' scene from the last episode, I've lost count at how many times I have rewatched it. I'm just so in love. ♥_♥

Also, I have the desire to learn how to speak High Valyrian.

Just the way Daenerys spoke it in the episode was so powerful, you could really see a future leader and ruler in her with the way she pronounces and articulates her commands. What's amazing is that it's a made-up language, yet it's absolutely gorgeous and the fact that she makes it seem so effortless in the way she spoke the words impresses me so much. Granted it's part of the character, Valyrian being her mother tongue so of course she would speak it fluently, but the difference in the power of her voice from speaking it as opposed to Dothraki just blows my mind.

This is where I wish I was a linguist, because this kind of stuff is just so fascinating.

So I have High Valyrian, Dothraki, and Khuzdul for fictional languages that I want to learn, along with all the other languages in our world that I want to learn to speak and understand. My priorities, let me show you them.

Yes! I'm now up to about a hundred watches of the scene, and I don't think I'm going to get sick of it any time soon.

I wish someone would do a Youtube vid where they just put together all Dany's scenes. They are the best parts of the show (not that I don't love other things too). But I'd love to watch all her scenes back to back.

And I loved the way High Valyrian sounded too. She sounded like a real queen. Amazing.

I wish the scene could have gone on longer because damn, just damn. *__*

I know what you mean. There are clips specifically of all Dany scenes from the show, but it would be nice if someone just compiled everything into one huge video so we can have endless Dany all the time. I just love her so much.

I love that there's a distinction between High Valyrian and the Valyrian spoken in Astapor, particularly used by Kraznys, which is considered to be a bastardized version of the language itself. It's just so cool the way the language itself was constructed and created and how it's used on the show.
