    Summary

    "Stannis Baratheon couldn't help it. He just couldn't. For the first time in longer than he could remember, a bubble of laughter burst unwillingly from his smirking lips. His smile only widened when he saw how very, very disturbed his fellow trustees of the Daemon Blackfyre Home for Orphans and Foundlings were..."

    An impertinent essay satirizing the trustees of the Daemon Blackfyre Home should have spelled the end for Sansa Stark, its eldest inmate. Instead a mysterious benefactor on the board funds Sansa's way through college on three conditions: 1) That she becomes a writer. 2) That she writes letters to her benefactor once a month. 3) That she is to never expect a reply, or to know his identity...

    Based on a tumblr prompt from iheartdramas to do a Stansa AU based on Jean Webster's 1912 epistolary novel Daddy-Long-Legs. Originally this was meant to be a two-shot, but hopefully it should be done in three... This is set in my usual careless mash-up of Westeros and Earth, anachronisms will abound - so apologies in advance for that.

    What belongs to George R R Martin belongs to him, what belongs to Jean Webster is hers and I am just playing with their toys (and many of them at that)!
