o > - Granny: Do Targaryens become immune to fire once they "bond" to their dragons?
>> - George_RR_Martin: Granny, thanks for asking that. It gives me a chance to clear up a common misconception. TARGARYENS ARE NOT IMMUNE TO FIRE! The birth of Dany's dragons was unique, magical, wonderous, a miracle. She is called The Unburnt because she walked into the flames and lived. But her brother sure as hell wasn't immune to that molten gold.
Revanshe: So she won't be able to do it again?
>>- George_RR_Martin: Probably not.
Targaryen Sword: Straight Outta Valyria? I suppose that there must have been a Targaryen Valyrian sword ..what happened to it? it is never mentioned. Was it melted down like Ice? No Comment http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Month/2000/09

VALYRIAN DRAGON RIDERS
[Were the Targaryens the only Valyrians who rode dragons?]
o They were the only dragonriders to survive the Doom.
[Are dragons male, female, hermaphroditic, or is there something magical involved in their reproduction?]
o Sexing dragons is difficult. More in future books.
[Do all the Great Houses own Valyrian steel weapons?]
o Oh, there are more Valyrian swords than we have seen so far. Not all of them belong to the Great Houses. Lesser nobility would oft purchase one as well, for the prestige, and sometimes knights or even lesser swords would acquire one on the battlefield, after the original owner fell. But there have been no more made since the Doom of Valyria.
