Rhaego Targaryen by Morgainelefee Rhaego Targaryen by Morgainelefee
Here comes a little piece of (imagined) fanart. I must admit that I also fell in Game of Thrones trap.
I was watching Season I while my second child was just few weeks old and, I would say obviously, I felt disturbed by Danaerys miscarriage of her son Rhaego:
“Monstrous. Twisted. I pulled him out myself. He was scaled like a lizard. Blind, with leather wings, like the wings of a bat. When I touched him, his skin fell from his bones. Inside, he was full of graveworms.” - Mirri Maz Dur -

So I decided to change the story and make him newborn, alive and healthy. Just, the scales and the wings aren't really a malformation, but a sign of the dragon blood inherited from his mother. As she saw him in a vision, his skin is bronze like his father's, and his hair are instead of the Valyrian blond type.
However, don't ask me how she could deliver such a scaly child without so much pain. Maybe she just delivered a dragon egg, ahah. It would be easier.

Thanks! It was difficult for me to not imagine him cute, even if he has dragon wings and scale :)

I completely agree (also because I know a couple which suffered of this), it was so sad to watch.
And, for story sake, a little Targaryen heir would have done things much interesting. Now Dany is the only one of her house, and it sounds like they are out of the Game of thrones anyway (I didn't read the books, ma logic tells me it should be like that).

I think Martin wanted to do it for character development

This is just so beautiful. You captured his innocence here so well. He's just so small and perfect looking. I love the idea that his part of the dragon blood had become visible on him. It's a lovely theory. I can easily see Dany holding this baby in her arms and loving him with all her heart. It’s just such a lovely picture; so vivid and realistic.
