    Summary

    Marriage and politics go hand in hand in the seven kingdoms. What might have happened if some of the parents took a little more active role in finding good matches for their children?

    Tywin Lannister starts the ball rolling by sending his youngest son in search of a bride sometime shortly before the death of Jon Aryn. Tyrion's quest will push the Starks to start thinking about advantageous matches for their children even before the King's visit and the effects will ripple out from there.

    Where the books and TV show are different I will be following the books, mostly... occasionally I may slip in something from the show, or from another fic because it's become part of my head cannon.

    I'm writing this for NaNoWriMo 2017 and I hope to cover roughly the same time-frame as the first book in 50,000+ words this month, so here should be pretty regular updates between now and then. UPDATE: NaNoWriMo is over and I managed to get 50,000 words written, some are posted here already, the other half fill up an outline for about 70 chapters and bits and pieces throughout the story. I'm hoping to finish a chapter or two a week. It's going to be somewhat longer than 50,000 words when it's done.

    Summary

    After the Battle of Blackwater, Sansa grows strong among the thorns: coping with a moping husband, the arrival of Margaery Tyrell, and being thrust into the spotlight when visitors from the Iron Bank arrive. But why does Tyrion think she's sleeping with someone else? And why has a drunk just given her a cheap necklace?

    This retelling of Seasons 3 and 4 features a Sansa who is smarter than she lets on, a Varys with a plan, and a Tyrion who has no idea how to deal with women. Particularly this woman.

    Betaed by the wonderful brookebond. Story is finished and a chapter will be posted a week at a time.

    Summary

    “As in, there is one future where the White Walkers are defeated immediately, the Long Night is merely a passing shadow and we are spared most of the senseless deaths that came upon Westeros since Ned Stark died. But it’s not a future I can try to turn into a reality,” Bran says with a long sigh.

    “What – what do you mean?” Lord Connington doesn’t sound too convinced, but he’s listening intently, or so it seems from the frown on his face.

    “That in order for us all to live, Aerys Targaryen must die not sooner and not later than he did, but Rhaegar must live,” Bran says tiredly, “along with Elia Martell and her children. Whether Lyanna Stark does or not is irrelevant, as long as all three children live and know they are the heads of the dragon. It’s no job for someone like me – I can only walk if I visit the past or the future, not if I want to live in it. How useless it is that one has such powers but then cannot even walk, isn’t it?”

    “You – you mean to – send us to the past?” Brienne asks, barely audible.

    Summary

    Sansa Tully – sometimes haunted by eerie sensations when confronted with characters and places from the past – finally gets to visit the famous historical Red Keep on her first sojourn to the capital. The intimate guided tour turns out even more intimate and harrowing once she steps across the mysterious threshold and finds herself in the royal court dripping with plots and treachery. Who to turn to, who to trust – and most of all; how to get back?

    Canon AU time-travel story, where hopefully this time, forewarned, they will do better.

    Summary

    The most powerful Noble Houses of Westeros are also terribly unhappy and the Maesters might be partially to blame:

    Marwyn the Mage is made Grand Maester in the year 271 A.C and is ready to enable the members of House Targaryen to bring back the world of Magic and Dragons, going against his own Order;
    Maester Flowers works to tame the wild wolfs of Winterfell to do his bidding;
    Maester Tyrion cannot forget that he was born a Lannister of Casterly Rock.

    Summary

    ... or the time the Starks rocked up to Hogwarts to compete for the Triwizard Cup.

    With a booming thud, the doors to the Great Hall flew open. The chatter cut off abruptly and all eyes turned to the group of twelve who marched in. The Northerners from Durmstrang had arrived. They strode into the Hall like they owned it. Like they’d taken it. As they walked, the steel tips of their long wooden staves beat a tattoo on the flagstones.

    It was like a drumbeat. A war beat. They were coming down the aisle between the Gryffindor House table and the Hufflepuff table. They would pass right in front of Theon’s seat. He felt his blood thrilling just to look at them. Just to hear them. They were like warriors more than students. Each one had a dangerous, wild, look about them.

    Summary
