    Summary

    In some other world, Gendry is a blacksmith’s apprentice, all shoulders and no inner turmoil and a niggling feeling that as much as he tries to stay out of trouble, it will find him. He drinks mead heartily after long days of smithing, he cannot swing a sword, he avoids redheads.

    In this world, he is standing half in shadows while Sansa Stark is swaying on her knees, track marks of furious tears cascading down her cheeks, clutching her gown together with shaking hands as the cruel-faced knight raises his hand for another blow – and Robert Baratheon’s flinty eyes are fixed upon him.

    Calculating.

    Waiting.

    Summary

    She remembered when the suggestion had first been proposed to him in the great hall, how tense and reticent he’d grown in his seat before the hearth.
    “You’d have me wed my own sister?” he’d asked in a threatening sort of quietude, sparking grey eyes and cold steel warping his tone.
    “Not by blood, your grace,” the Lord had stammered nervously, eyes wide with a hint of fear. “Lady Sansa is but your cousin, of course, and a Stark. It’s not uncommon —frequent really — for such relatives to wed, as I’m sure your grace is aware. I believe I speak for all present when I suggest such a union could only benefit your standing.”
    “He has a point,” she’d spoken out before Jon could.
    The hall had grown impossibly quiet then, the low crackling of the burning wood in the hearth filling the emptiness with the loudness of war drums in their ears.

    Summary

    Jon is leaving for Dragonstone in the morning to meet Danaerys with the intent of forming an alliance through marriage. Sansa is convinced he will not survive the trip south, and if he does she may not. Despite all of her pleading, nothing will change his mind.
    At the last minute, Bran (yes, Bran is already at Winterfell in my story) tells her something that changes everything and gives Sansa a political solution that just might work. Convincing Jon will be the hard part and she only has one night.
    Also, in this story Bran and Sam (yes, Sam and Gilly have arrived as well) have already shared the big reveal so Jon and Sansa know exactly who Jon is and, more importantly, know that they are cousins and not half-siblings.
