    Summary

    Selyse of Brightwater Keep is born at that time of the year when harvest is underway. The maester worries over her silence, certain something must be wrong for the child to be born open-eyed and strangely tinted fingers and toes.

    But the green fades soon, and the year end well, with the best harvest in many years and more, and the old folk can be heard giving thanks for the Old God's blessing.

    Blessings, of course, oft turn out to look much like curses.

    "She lives for the dreaming.

    In the day, she was a hostage, but at night she was a phantom in the castle, the shadow of a shadow in a dream, in dozens of dreams."

    Summary

    But there were no more screams. He blinked in surprise and checked to be certain he hadn't been rendered deaf. The whole bus seemed breathless, dozens of eyes locked in anticipation for Shireen's encore.

    On the other end of her smile was a man, two chair in front of them. Not remarkable in the least, but for the way his smile returned to his screaming toddler to a happy mood.

    "What did you do?" Stannis asked brusquely.

    Summary

    Every sailor knows stories of ship-wraiths, whole crews of dead men prowling the seas. The restless drowned, they are called, the spirits of the ones that dare sail in the dark and know the ways of shore and waves better than anyone.

     It is said of some their loyalty is the only part of them not washed away, and their purpose turns them into terrible guardians in the shadows of shadows.

     

    Seaworth is a heavy name, heavy enough to drown in. Davos does. And then he sails again.

    Summary

    There was a tale, and it went like this:

    There was once a Stark brother, a Black Brother of the white Wall, that took a White Walker to wife, and from their union they begot children of night and ice. Their children's children children hold their legacy in their bones, to be remembered when the great night covers the sky.

    And they shall be champions of the night, and ice their weapons and shadow their shields, and all shall tremble at their cold winter might.

    Summary

    They say a witch lives in the house with the red door. Her hair is white, long and in funny braids, with little bells in it. They sing every time she walks, which is often, and everytime she rides, which is oftener.

    She says she lived in the house as a child; she says it is home, and that she always only ever wanted to return home.

     

     
    Dany and the red door, a homecoming.

    Summary

    It was what she told herself, a prayer all of her own. Words are wind words are wind words are wind. Actions, intention, loyalty, those spoke louder than any gale.

     
    Shireen grows up with a father's love and attention, Stannis learns to care. When the stags stand together, predators ought to know better than to walk unwary.

    Summary

    or, disillusionment in nine parts

    iii- Men are men. All do some measure of evil, to differing degrees, and all do some goodness, small as it may be. Most are born small and stay small, other are born great and what they do about it is entirely their choice.

    Men are men. Men, no matter how just or strong or admirable, cannot be gods.

    Summary

    Catelyn remembered Harrenhall, how brash and handsome Brandon had been, how lovely and melancholy the crown prince, Lyanna young and reckless. Jon was very much his own boy, his dark moods usually fleeting and easily brightened by his family, but there was a slump to his shoulders and a wetness in his eyes just now that she misliked.
     
    Catelyn and Jon, on how to answer delicate questions and learn to raise (love) children.

    Summary

    “Knights die in battle,” Catelyn reminded her. Brienne looked at her with those blue and beautiful eyes. “As ladies die in childbed. No one sings songs about them.”

    ― George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

    The thing about water, though, is that it sinks it's way into rock and bark and flesh, softens that which is hard, parts that which is though. She will never be tall, never catch the moon and the stars and the world in pale freckled fingers.

    Summary

    A stab of uncertainty paralyzed him, the breath fled from his lungs so he ended balanced on precariously placed feet. Perhaps it was nothing. Perhaps Willas Tyrell was into some new-age dornish-style cult or something else Stannis didn't fit in, the way he had never-

    "Pardon, do you need any help?"
     
    There was someone blocking his view to his prize. An employer of Hightower&Hightower Bookshop, looking at him with his head tilted quizzically. He was slightly built and had placed himself in a way that made it clear he knew exactly which shelf he'd been glaring at.

    Summary

    Fifteen Facts About Jon Snow, Plus One About Jon Seaworth-Baratheon.

    Jon Snow is accepted into the custody of the Westerosi Foster System fifty eight hours after his birth, six after his mother, identity undisclosed, dies in her rose-scented hospital bed. His file says it was blood loss caused by a ruptured uterus. Nobody blames him for her death because there's no one to care. Nobody absolves him either, though Da comforts and Father rationalizes and Shireen understands.
     
    He teaches himself how to, eventually.

    The “ignore me, I’m not talking to your door, I’m just whispering to my cat who likes to climb into your house through your open perpetually open window and sleep on your sofa or dining table and now refuses to leave” AU

    Patchface, Stannis Baratheon's fat old cat, takes a liking to Davos Seaworth. Well, Davos Seaworth's couch. Cat shenanigans ensue, and maybe something else as well.

    Summary

    An answer to this asoiaf kinkmeme: "Stannis holing up in his room after the Battle of the Blackwater had nothing to do with Melisandre and everything to do with Davos. More specifically, Davos' death.
    Bonus points for Mel checking on him because she saw their UST in the flames and also she is a true bro."

    Stannis grieves, Melisandre tries to be comforting and the flames of Azar Ahoi flicker, for a time.

    Summary

    When the letters come from Storm's End, a plea masked as a notice of reward for any who feeds the besieged garrison, Varys makes sure Davos is informed. There's no one he can trust half as well to outwit the Redwyne fleet and be deserving of the knighthood sure to follow, yes, but mostly he remembers the kind eyed boy who'd given the last of his food to an empty-hearted eunuch.

    Davos, he knows, could never stand aside when people starve.

     

    A look into a friendship that never was, but could have been. Because you don't have to be a noble to matter, and there's always time for sharing a drink with an old friend.
