    Summary

    The North is starving. The King is unwed.

    Terrible rumors circle the lands. Terrible wars. Terrible kings. And none more terrible than the White Wolf himself.

    And Sansa Tully, by her family’s will, would be his loyal bride.

     

    (Or: In a world where the Targaryens never came to Westeros, the game of thrones rages on.)

    Summary

    The North, Vale, and Trident came together as one country during Aegon’s Conquest and have been fighting off the Targaryen Conquest for three centuries. Sansa is the long-suffering princess/chancellor of the Winter Kingdom (or “Dauphin” as the position is called) whose life is turned upside down when her inexperienced brother arranges for her to marry the man responsible for their father’s death: the newly crowned Jon I Targaryen, King of the Iron Throne.

    Summary

    Same theatre, but a different play. Aegon Targaryen never united Westeros under the Iron Throne. Aegon Targaryen never became King of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men. Aegon Targaryen never ventured west.

    Instead, he went back east. Instead of King, he crowned himself Emperor. No War of Conquest was waged, but a War of Restoration. With fire as the hammer and blood as the anvil, Aegon the Restorer forged an empire from the ashes of the Freehold.

    Now, three hundred years later, the Holy Valyrian Empire stands as the mightiest of nations in the known world, but that may very well change soon. The mummers of this play will sing a song of war, betrayal, love and intrigue. A song that will echo through the ages.

    Summary

    An AU of grand scale inspired by a prompt by Oblongata.

    Three hundred years after Aegon the Conqueror built a new empire on the ashes of the Valyrian Freehold the known world is a place of war. The Targaryen Empire is pressed by enemies, the Seven Kingdoms war amongst themselves and forces contrive to pull them all apart.

    Amidst all this are a prince and princess who fear themselves ruined by the horrors they've endured. Together they might be the hope their people are looking for. More importantly, they might be the dream both abandoned long ago.

    Summary

    How did a small girl from the North of the Lands of Sunset, come to the Palace of Pearls and become from slave to concubine, to lady of the Empire and then Empress of Valyria? All for the love of a dark, twisted man dead once already.

    “A mother dreams for glory for all of her children - she murmurs - but I, I dream only happiness for you” she adds. It has a tone of finality, like a dismissal.

    Jaehaerys does not reply to it. Not immediately.

    He turns and looks at her long and hard. He looks like her, but there is a softness in his features, less pointed than hers, that speaks of his valyrian ancestry.

    “Then pray, mother” he murmurs, then he turns, slams the door open and leaves, the door open in his wake “maybe your Tree Gods are less cruel than mine” he murmurs as he leaves.
    […]

    As long as I know who I am, I cannot be broken.
    As long as I know who I am, I cannot be broken.
    As long as I know who I am, I cannot be broken.

    She murmurs it in the night, before falling asleep. Like a promise. Like a prayer.
