Daenerys Targaryen/Jon Snow, also known as Jonerys, is the het and incestuous pairing of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen in the A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones fandoms. They have a canonical relationship.


Jon and Daenerys first meet in Season 7 when Jon travels south seeking Daenerys' help in the war against the White Walkers. Daenerys wants him to bend the knee, but Jon refuses. They come to a compromise and Daenerys learns to trust Jon's advice. Jon and a group travel north of the wall to capture a wight, they are trapped and send for help. When Daenerys comes to their aid one of her dragons is killed. Afterwards Jon bends the knee to Daenerys. At the end of season 7 Jon and Daenerys begin a sexual relationship.



Jon/Daenerys had a small following in fandom from the beginning of the series with many believing they would eventually be endgame, but their popularity grew exponentially when they went canon in Season 7.
