The Meereenese Knot...

... may be fraying, just a little.

But don't quote me on that.

Re: Untying the knot
Believe me, the number of times I have wanted to introduce a magical portal, and/or have my characters click their heels together and say, "There's no place like King's Landing," is beyond count. So far I have manfully resisted these temptations.

Great news! Congrats on the progress, I was worried you were gonna have to rename this place "Knot a Blog."

Re: Untying the knot
Well, I assume it would involve a massive rewrite of the whole book, but the distance between Slaver's Bay and Volantis has never been measured in already published volumes, if I remember correctly, so it might be still possible that the huge yet unexplored lands between the remnants of Valyria and the Free Cities are not so huge after all - especially as we have heard yet nothing about the people living there.

And if the guys who are traveling overland are using this wondrous valyrian roads, they should be able to travel fast, shouldn't they? Of course, Victarion still needs to proof that he has the guts to face the perils of the Smoking Sea, but Tyrion and Quentyn likely do not.

In any case, please remain strong and prevent the urge to introduce us to the lost art of valyrian STAR-GATE-BUILDING - that would reduce dragon-riding to mere sports.
But I presume that at least Archmaester Marwyn might interact with Daenerys and/or other characters in a Quaithe-like fashion as phantom only. He has one of the glass candles, and we already knew that he knows how to use them, so nothing should hinder him to pursue his hidden agenda by projecting his image into Daenerys's mind to train her, counsel her, or drive her mad.

Everyone who's read McCaffrey's Pern knows the solution to your problem:

Dragons don't fly. They teleport.

Oh, they do it in rapid microjumps to make it look like they're flying (seriously, everyone knows something as big as a dragon couldn't really fly; but teleportation, that's physics, as Star Trek uses it all the time!), but it just takes some coaxing to get them to teleport much greater distances through space ... and time, too, which would be very handy for plot purposes.
