    Summary

    What if Sansa had gone with the Hound after the Battle of the Blackwater? The story of a girl trying to find her big brother, and how she helped him keep his crown - and his head.

    Partially inspired by Akastuki no Yona, this was part of my NaNoWriMo entry for 2018. Shoutout to tumblr’s kithlessheir, who has consistently attempted to (and usually succeeded in) dragging my arse to hell since 2014.

    Summary

    Sansa finds it difficult to look at Jon’s face, with its weathered lines and cragginess. It is the face of the North and a face that northerners trust; the face of Sansa’s brothers and her father, who had been loved and respected by their tenants as their forefathers had been when they were kings. How can Sansa feel anything but resentment, looking into that face and knowing that all of her years of hard work will never earn her the respect that that profile engenders within seconds?

    But she does. It is a small, burning coal of something that must be smothered.

    Summary

    Don’t forget to turn on your oven. Don’t forget to turn on your oven. Don’t forget to turn on your oven.

    With that advice running on a loop in her head, Sansa enters the Bake Off tent for the first time. As the weeks pass, she decorates cakes, kneads dough, battles against soggy bottoms, and becomes closer to fellow baker Jon Snow than she ever anticipated.

    Summary

    Victor Nikiforov was on his way to becoming a Living Legend in the sport of figure skating. After hitting his stride and winning back-to-back World Championships, the sport's biggest star was the overwhelming favorite to win gold in his third Olympics on home ice in Sochi, Russia.

    But when Yuri Katsuki pulls off the upset victory in Sochi at the young age of 21 and takes the gold, Victor begins to see his world and the people in it in a very different light -- and it turns out they see him differently as well.

    No longer knowing who he can rely on and finding he didn't know those close to him as well as he thought, when his skating career falters Victor makes a shocking choice that turns his world upside down in ways he did -- and didn't -- expect.
