The Dothraki tell the legend that dragons were born from a second moon that once hung in the night sky. But what if the myth is real? This panel will analyze folklore and real-life science, making the case for a link between the destruction of the moon and the reason the Long Night was so deep and dark.

From White Walkers taking babies left in the forest to Daenerys losing her baby in an act of blood magic—the motif of the stolen child is rampant in ASOIAF. Our panelists will trace the origins of the stolen child in myth and literature, calling on fairy tales, folklore, and  A Midsummer Night's Dream .

A continuation of last year’s Queendom of Thrones panel, this year’s discussion will focus on the political upbringings of the major female characters of the show. How were the women of the show brought up to adhere to different expected norms within Westeros, Essos, and Beyond the Wall? In what ways did this result in either devastation, in the case of Sansa, or an overcoming of obstacles, albeit through bloody means, like Daenerys and Cersei? Or are they more successful when they buck gender norms, like Arya and Brienne? Cast your vote!
