1 Work in Elbert Arryn/Ned Stark
05 Aug 2015
She comes out a squalling, red faced thing, and Lyarra Stark is as she is in every other aspect of her life - relentless.
"Give her to me," she gasps, orders, even though she still thinks she may die yet because oh, the pain was surely not this terrible with Brandon, the Maester doesn't even consider not complying when he sees the steely look in her eyes.
"Hello," she says to the little baby, her second child, her first girl, who clenches her tiny fists with her tiny fingernails, her eyes stormy and wisps of hair dark. She had been thinking of Lyanna for a daughter, but it didn't fit. Neither did any other pretty, limp name. This daughter of the north was made of sterner stuff.
"Eddara," she said, after a moment "as strong as a mountain, my lovely one."
Also known as: I Cannot Stop Myself Genderbending, Please Help and How Eddara Stark Became A Queen. First in the series.
