    Summary

    The world is becoming out of joint. The cruel winds of winter are coming, but they come at a slow turn. It is the summer of plenty, of long laughs and even longer lives. But that summer is coming to a close.

    The Lord of Winterfell wants a better life for his bastard - a better life than even what his son would want. So Jon Snow travels across the Narrow Sea, where tales of an empire of horselords await him. A thousand roads he could travel, but he finds himself walking only the one, the one that brings him in conflict with a vicious dragon prince who will sell his sister for the Iron Throne.

    And so, begins a Song for Dragons.

    Summary

    What if Ned wasn't beheaded in King's Landing and Catelyn didn't die at the Red Wedding? Just over two years ago I asked myself those questions, and with the encouragement of some wonderful people I started this story.

    This story takes place entirely in the canon universe, diverging from GRRM's epic at two points--Ned's execution and Catelyn's murder at the Twins--and examines all the ways that the survival of these two people might have changed events both large and small in the world of Westeros. The ripples have far reaching consequences for many throughout the Seven Kingdoms, but at its heart, this is a story of two people, their marriage, their family, and the North.

    NOW COMPLETE

    Summary

    A tale of dynastic politics, courtly intrigue, and rebellion.

    Rhaegar, Viserys, and Daenerys are the children of Aerys and Rhaella we all know, their other siblings dying in childbirth or the cradle.

    But what if they had lived? This story is an AU where four more of the Mad King’s children grew to adulthood. A world where Daenerys had six older siblings instead of two.

    King Rhaegar rules over the Seven Kingdoms, a land divided in its loyalties while old wounds still linger after Rhaegar's Rebellion against the Mad King. Princess Daenerys, youngest of the king’s siblings, has grown up at a court full of dragons and powerful families, most vying for greater power. While some dream of a resurgent Targaryen dynasty, others foster their own ambitions toward the Iron Throne.

    A tale focusing mostly on the Houses Targaryen, Baratheon, Lannister, and Martell.

    Summary

    "Promise Me, Ned." Robert's Rebellion is over and won, and Ned Stark finds himself at the Tower of Joy with his dying sister's words ringing in his head. He makes the promise and takes the newborn babe, but he makes one other decision in this universe which starts to unravel his careful plan from the very beginning--endangering not only the baby boy, but Ned, his new wife, his own infant son, and all he holds dear; pitting him against the man he has called brother; and creating potential chaos in Robert Baratheon's new reign just as it is beginning.

    A pre-canon AU plot set in an otherwise book compliant Westeros spanning the years from the end of Robert's Rebellion to the end of the Greyjoy Rebellion.
