southwestbrogue asked: Besides Cersei's obsession with a younger, more beautiful queen taking her place (almost Sleeping Beauty-esque), and Bran being enthroned on the throne in Skagos (King in the Mountain myth), what other mythic tales are embedded in ASOIAF?
Well, first I’d caution that we have no idea what life is actually like for Rickon (I assume that’s who you meant) in Skagos. We simply know he’s in Skagos, and that Shaggydog fought a unicorn. Second, I don’t really have a second — this isn’t my area of expertise beyond what I’ve learned from the good folks at Disney. Maybe Daenerys is Ariel and Mirri Maz Duur is Ursula the Sea Witch?
