    Summary

    A man from modern day America wakes up to find himself in Westeros, years before the show's start. As a fan (and to an extent, realist), how will he act according to the future he knows is coming?

     

    I'm withholding any relationship tags or archive warnings to avoid giving too much of the game away. Hope you can forgive me! Also the characters tagged are not the only ones that will appear.

    Summary

    Alysanne Snow is the bastard daughter of Eddard Stark. Although she was raised among her trueborn siblings, Alysanne was sent to foster with three of her father's vassals, over the course of her childhood, House Reed, House Mormont, and House Magnar , the Lords of the Isle of Skagos.

    Alysanne strikes up a friendship with Tyr Magnar, heir to the Lordship of Skagos during her time on the isle. When Tyr escorts her back to Winterfell on his way to squire for Lord Manderly , he asks Eddard Stark for her hand in marriage, a request he is happy to grant, not just because Alysanne reciprocates's Tyr's feelings for her, but because of his fear that both friend and foe will discover that Alysanne is really the daughter of his sister and Rhaegar Targaryen .

    Yet secrets have a way of getting out, and when her father is executed for discovering one that Cersei Lannister does not want revealed, Alysanne discovers the truth of her own parentage and is forced to fight, not just for her own survival, but those she loves as well.

    Summary

    The slumbering direwolf of the North has rested peacefully for nearly three hundred years, content to rest and build as they always had since the days of King Torrhen Stark, who had surrendered his crown to Aegon the Conqueror in the name of peace and fealty. His heart broken by the loss of the kingdom passed down through the ages, his bastard brother takes him on a trek around the North to survey the realm he rules now as Lord Paramount...and in a blizzard, they find something that forever changes the history of not just the North, but the entire world.

    But nothing can sleep forever.

    When Prince Rhaegar Targaryen snatched Lyanna Stark from the city of Winterfell, the direwolf stirred from its slumber and was enraged by the death of its liege lord and his son and heir...the Andal realms of the South learnt that the North was not the sparsely populated backwater they told their children about, but one of the foremost powers in Westeros.

    What if the North had a population on par with the Reach, brought about by having a reliable and consistent supply of food?

    Summary

    „Lord Rickard demanded trial by combat, and the king granted the request. Stark armored himself as for battle, thinking to duel one of the Kingsguard. Me, perhaps. Instead they took him to the throne room and suspended him from the rafters while two of Aerys's pyromancers kindled a blaze beneath him. The king told him that fire was the champion of House Targaryen. So all Lord Rickard needed to do to prove himself innocent of treason was ... well, not burn.“

    Jaime Lannister, A Clash of Kings

    But what if he did not burn?

    Rickard Stark survives the attempt at burning him because the pyromancers could not tie a proper knot.
    Watch as he fixes the realm, his family and shit in general from the overall incompetence of kings, lords, knights and other idiots. For though the king may be a mad lackwit, his subjects at least should have a shot at peace and happiness.
    Shouldn't they?
