    Summary

    Winter is approaching, but it is not the only thing the Realms have to fear. Buried under ice and vague legends, Lord Stark finds the Old Enemy waking from his long sleep beyond the Wall.

    However, this is not Eddard Stark's story. This is the tale of Stannis Baratheon's struggles to hold his brother's kingdoms together. It is the tale of Thoros of Myr's path back into R'hllor's light and Beric Dondarrion's way through the valley of shadow. It is Renly Baratheon's vision of the realms' better future, and an avalanche of change rolling over the North. And it is the tale of a king who grew fat on a throne he never wanted, and has to remember the warrior he once was.

    These are the elegies of the North, the battle hymns of the South, and the siren's songs from distant shores of the Known World.

    Summary

    The year following the war's end was the best he'd had in nearly a decade. Ciri was no longer hounded by men and elves, Yennefer's reputation was restored and Geralt was back to doing what he did best: simple Witcher's work. Kill the monster and get paid. No more conspiracies or prophecies to ensnare him. He should've known it wouldn't last long. Post-Witcher 3 & Hearts of Stone.

    Summary

    When Daenerys Targaryen arrives at Winterfell, she hopes the North will welcome as their greatest ally against the Army of the Dead. After all, Daenerys is risking not only her life but that of her people. Instead, they greet the Dragon Queen with stony silence and hate-filled eyes.

    Yet, Daenerys tries to grin and bear it, no matter how many insults are tossed her way or her people disrespected; her love for Jon is her guiding light.

    But when the Army of the Dead is defeated, the next step must be chosen, and a bitter truth comes to the Dragon Queen: Westeros is not her home. Rather than allow herself to be used by those who hate her, Daenerys declares she’ll return to her real kingdom. Rather than abandon the woman he loves, Jon goes with her, abdicating in favor of his sister.

    Initially glad to see her back, the North quickly discovers that two great dangers still lurk: Cersei and greater, darker magic rising in the mysterious Frostfang Mountains. Forced to flee to the only person that might give them aid, but after getting burned once the Dragon Queen isn't so forgiving this time...

    Summary

    "I don't believe my will's quite free/I'm half machine, at least half steam./Aquinas, call on me." - Dessa

    “I have a letter we must speak about,” he says, and after a moment’s hesitation, reads it aloud, slowly and clearly, to her.

    Aemma stares at him blankly, only registering that it is a letter from the King. She thinks she met the King once, when she was very small and he and his family visited. She couldn’t have been any older than four or five. It was before Prince Duncan ran off with that peasant girl and gave up his rights to the throne. Now it will go to his brother, Prince Jaehaerys. Septa says he was mad for love. Aemma can’t comprehend of such a thing, but then again, she has never fallen in love, and she certainly hopes the first man she falls for is not poor and lowborn, no matter how pretty his looks.

    “Aemma,” Father says, gently, “the letter is about you and Prince Maegor.”

    (Jon Arryn's daughter by Jeyne Royce survives. Aegon V seeks a marriage into a loyal house for his troublesome nephew. Chaos ensues.)

    Summary

    “A woman’s life is nine parts mess to one part magic, you’ll learn that soon enough…and the parts that look like magic often turn out to be messiest of all.”
    —George R. R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

    Roose Bolton unrolled a piece of parchment and dipped his raven feather quill into a glass inkwell with a silver lid that shone in the candlelight. “You must think me a monster, my lady,” he murmured.

    “I do not believe that being a monster is such a bad thing.” Wynne delicately moved across his solar to stand in front of his desk, her heart beating harder with every step toward him that she took. “One woman’s monster is oft another woman’s beloved.”

    Wynne Dustin thought her greensight was more of a curse than a blessing until she changed her favorite cousin’s grisly fate. If forewarned is forearmed, then she might be able to destroy the inhuman monsters beyond the Wall and win the prophesized War for the Dawn. Roose Bolton learning her darkest secret and offering to wed her was something she never saw coming.

    Summary

    Frustrated with the War of the Five Kings, Domeric Bolton deserts the Northern army and rescues Sansa Stark from King’s Landing.

    Part war story, part chivalric romance, part tragic irony, major Cerebus Syndrome. A look at the weight of curses and at Roose Bolton as a husband and a father. A darkfic with a light at the end of the tunnel, partly inspired by Dante Alighieri’s La Vita Nuova.

    This mostly follows book canon until midway through ASOS, but I have used the ages from the show. Fun fact, if you play the Game of Thrones CK2 mod and start at Robert’s Rebellion, take a look at Roose’s court and you’ll find Domeric, a poet from the tender age of four.

    Shooting for August 14th for the next update.

    Summary

    What is a man good for, if not the honor of his word?

    All Jon Snow has ever wanted was to protect the North. Formally a simple bastard, now a King and leader of his people, Jon must prepare them against the Long Night. So when he hears of the infamous Dragon Queen's arrival, Jon knows that she is the key to their survival.

    While Jon was ready to pay some price for her help, Jon wasn't expecting to fall in love with Daenerys. Naively, Jon believes that their impending doom would make everyone work together, but of course, he's wrong. Between squabbling minor lords and deep-rooted prejudice, the two factions are virtually at war themselves.

    But when a long-forgotten Pact comes into the light, it offers a way for the two clashing factions to come together — a method for Westeros to truly heal: the Pact of Ice and Fire.

    Summary

    "Oh, maybe you were free,/Before my blackened wing covered you,/I took the sing from your song/I made a bed,/Where you don't belong." - Ben Howard

    “You are the Knight of the Laughing Tree. You disguised yourself as a man and entered the lists?” His tone is caught somewhere between skepticism and… wonder?

    “Yes,” she nods in a clipped fashion.

    His brow furrows. “Lady Eddara, why?”

    “To avenge the honor of a friend,” she replies, and it is almost too easy to slip into the role. To… well, to pretend she were like Lyanna. That she did such wild things without hesitation. That she was so ironclad in her convictions. That she… that she still had dreams. It is alarmingly easy, to pretend.

    (Hastily attempting to hide the evidence of her sister's brief time as the Knight of the Laughing Tree, Eddara Stark is discovered by Rhaegar. In an effort to spare Lyanna from Aerys' wroth, Edda claims the shield and armor as her own, and the next day, unwillingly claims a crown of winter roses as well.)

    Summary

    She died in the arms of the man she loved. Her dream of a better world shattered by those who should have supported her. She lost. She died. And then she lived again.
    She is the Prince that was promised. She brought the dawn back, even though none of those who survived the Battle of Ice and Fire will ever admit it. But the Lord remembers better than men. Evil is punished with evil. And good with good. She died for her sins at the hands of the man who stole her heart. And she lives again for her crucial stand against the forces of evil, both living and not. Her daughter did not perish in the womb, for the Lord raised her as well. She is Daenerys Targaryen. And the only man she will ever love is called Jon Snow, the one who killed her. But what if she could have all that he has ever dreamed of and more?

    In Westeros, the lords thought that the wars were over. That there is peace. But the people do not want peace. Their grievances have been brought to the light. No longer the sheep that many highborn though them to be, the smallfolk want a voice in the way their lives are made. And if they will not be given that voice, they will take it. For they are the Young.

    Summary

    Title inspired off of William Shakespeare's 147th Sonnet.

    She leaned forward and picked up the small goblet of wine in front of her, taking a sip from it. “I think about finding him a mistress, you know, but with his whores I think he has that covered. Perhaps if I planned a conquest of Esso maybe he’d find some purpose again. Maybe he needs another war to fight, another cause to champion.”

    “I think what he needs is someone to love and someone to love him,” he said.

    “Yes, probably," she agreed, "But we both know that person can’t be me. I’m a Targaryen, Lord Jon, and he hates Targaryens. Nothing I do will ever make up for the disaster and death that my father and brother caused the Seven Kingdoms.”

    “None of that was in your control,” he said.

    “No. I know that. But you see, it hardly matters to him. I’m guilty by association. I could try to fix it for the rest of my life and he’ll still look at me like I was the one to rape and murder his lady love.”

    Summary

    “The raven your brother sent from Dragonstone promised a Lannister army, yet here you are with no garrison, no cavalry.”

    He took a deep breath and a step forward. “My sister had no intention of aiding the North in this war with the dead. I came to warn your brother and his Dragon Queen.”

    Summary

    Daenerys Targaryen has always been a survivor, there was no denying that...

    After Jon plunged a dagger in her heart, believing himself to be saving the Realm, Westeros thought that they had seen the last of the last pure decendant of Old Valyria. Holding her in his claws, Drogon flew the one place he believed would help his Mother: Volantis. Brought back to life by the Red Priests, Daenerys was content in returning to Meereen and ruling as Queen; with her and Jon's daughter as her heir: Rhyaenna.

    But the same fire to reclaim Westeros that once burned within Daenerys, now burns with Rhyaenna. Claiming a son of a wealthy Braavosi House as a husband as well as a younger son of the Prince of Dorne, Rhyaenna will not make the same mistakes as her Mother. Westeros thought that it had seen the last of the Targaryens, it just ignited the fire of another Conquest.
