    Summary

    Brienne stalks to him, standing in front of him as he shakes the ash and soot out of his hair and clothes. He looks up to find her standing there, the shock writ heavy across his brows, in the slackening of his jaw. She cups his face, thumbing at the smut on his cheeks.

     

    “Are you okay?”

     

    He blinks several times before a beatific smile spreads across his face. “I am.”

     

    She nods once, decidedly. “Good.”

     

    Then she pulls back and punches him square in his nose.
    --

    A post-8x04 "fix-it" fic. Jaime survives his trip back south and the ensuing battle for King's Landing. Cersei does not. Brienne's trust has been broken, and there's the slight baby-shaped complication from their time in Winterfell.

    Summary

    Brienne is accepted into King's Landing University's Masters of Mathematics program with the hope of being assigned Dr. Tully as an advisor. Instead, Brienne is assigned Dr. Jaime Lannister, a sharp-tongued, demanding man seemingly disinterested in being an advisor. However, Dr. Lannister isn't the first person to underestimate Brienne, and she refuses to let him have the last word.

    --
    "Who are you?” he asked, voice sharp, as if already annoyed by her mere presence.

    She held out her hand for him to shake. “I’m Brienne Tarth. You were assigned as my graduate advisor and I--”

    He stared at her hand for a moment but didn’t bother to take it. “It’s the first week of the semester.”

    “I know, sir,” she said, dropping her hand, wishing away the blush that she knew stained her cheeks. “But I thought it best to introduce myself and--”

    “Come back when you have something to show me,” he said, looking back down at whatever he was working on. She stood dumbly, staring at him, the sinking feeling of her old friend humiliation settling heavy in her throat.

    Summary

    “What I want isn’t possible,” Jaime says, his throat aching. He can repair every broken place in this city before he’ll be able to fix what he’d just seen, torn and unmended, when he’d finally looked into the deep well of her eyes.

    (Jaime survives the collapse of the Red Keep, but it's going to take a long time to rebuild his life, and a number of other things that have been left in ruins.)
