    Summary

    The singers love to sing of good men forced to go outside the law to fight some wicked lord, yet not all songs are sung true. We all heard the stories. How the beautiful noble Rhaegar Targaryen had stolen our King’s lady love from under his nose. Did numerous vile things to her. How Robert started a war to get back his beloved; slew the Last Dragon. Yet, she died anyway. That’s what the bards will tell you. Just how beautifully tragic it was when it was anything but.

    Within every song you hear, there’s a speckle of real truth hidden within the lies we desperately want to believe. You think you know a story. But you only know how it ends. To get to the heart of the story, you must go back to the beginning.

    Summary

    King Rhaegar ushers in a new era of Targaryen rule just as winter comes. As he attempts to regain lost trust between the crown and his kingdoms, intrigue and scandal make themselves known that threaten the very precarious balance he seeks to build in his realm.

    Lyanna Stark, sixteen, is two years a wife, one year a mother, and a newly made queen. She is still exploring the waters of married life while she struggles with the demands of queenship; as she wades the gap between child and woman, the young queen must learn to adapt, and quickly, lest the ambitions of others threaten to topple her before she has even begun.

    Winter is coming and the worst of plots begin to come to a boil; if the couple hope to survive, they must brace themselves, for better or for worse.

    Summary

    'He remembered how, a few short weeks before, he had told Lyanna how love could grow from the tiniest seeds. But what he hadn’t told her was that sometimes it was bigger than that, and bolder, and sometimes it made a person do dangerous things…'

    A story of Robert's Rebellion, where love lives and dies and lives again.

    Out-takes, of varying lengths, cut from my story Of Dragons, Roses and a Second Hand Match. Mostly they were cut because I felt they shifted away from the flow of the story, or because they would disturb the alternating viewpoints I had chosen to write. Anyway, they are here now. I am posting them in the order in which they would appear had they been included in the main story, but it will be up to you to decide whereabouts exactly they should fit in.
