“Aegon Targaryen changed the rules. That’s why every child alive knows his name three hundred years after his death.”Those were the words of Tywin Lannister about Aegon the Conqueror and his dragons, which forever altered warfare in Westeros. Now a woman and her dragons threaten to change the world once more, but we’re not talking about Daenerys. We’re talking about someone who is changing the rules of Christmas decorations, and her dragons might also lead to a war.Diana Rowland, an author from Louisiana, had a very different type of decor for her outdoor Christmas display this year: an incredible setup featuring two giant inflatable dragons. While many are bound to love it, one anonymous neighbor does not. A real-life Cersei left a note (wrongly) saying dragons are not appropriate for the holiday season, and suggested they might represent a satanic cult. (Not totally fair to the followers of the Lord of Light, but not totally unfair either.)

Of course, Rowland did the only thing she could after receiving such a concerned letter—she added way more dragons and gave them more of a Christmas feel.

Everything about this is amazing (which is why even George R.R. Martin retweeted Vice‘s story about it), including how plenty of dragon supporters wanted to donate money to Rowland to buy even more decorations. Instead of taking them up on that silly offer, she asked for donations to actual worthy causes instead.

Will this escalation lead to a war among neighbors? Maybe. War seems to follow dragons wherever they go. So who will win? We know who Tywin Lannister would bet on.
