    Summary

    Ogedei (son of Genghis) Khan has a problem. Somewhere out in where-the-eff-is-Anatolia, his protégé Baiju Noyan has dropped off the map and taken his troops with him. Incoming reports have been increasingly sparse, inarticulate, and disturbing. Has the famously fierce Noyan gone native? Rogue? Insane? All of the above?
    According to the royal diviners, rookie intelligence agent Nerguitani ("No Name Girl") is the best candidate for the mission. Sungurtekin (the Khan's Anatolian spymaster and a native of the Kayis tribal lands where the Noyan was last sighted) privately thinks the diviners have been drinking more spirits than they've been consulting.
    Can a nice girl from the home steppes (with multiple options on not-so-nice) survive the dangerous company of Baiju Noyan and evade the wrath of his sworn nemesis Ertugrul Ghazi? Can she salvage the Khan's Western frontier before it becomes an epic Mongolian cluster... of embarrassments?

    Summary

    Unexpectedly, Targaryen forces sweep into Stannis's camp, taking him prisoner. Ser Davos begs one thing of Rickon Stark: take the displaced princess to safety, to the one place no one will look.

    I have aged everyone up by seven years; Rickon was 10 when he left with Osha, Shireen was 16, etc.

    Since I'm bringing in other POVs I'm gonna leave up the other pairings. They are going to feature for more prominently than I had originally planned.
