    Summary

    But it always required sacrifice. Winning always required sacrifice.

    "Ziggy, keep climbing, okay? Don't come down, no matter what. Not until help comes."

    But the stakes are too high here. This isn't playing in the park with the neighborhood kids, where capture means sitting dormant on a designated bench until a teammate tags you out. This isn't about winning. This is about living. And how is Ziggy supposed to live without her sister?

    ---

    Or: The Berman sisters live.

    Summary

    Daenerys Targaryen has spent her entire life at the mercy of others. Virtually powerless against the conditions she was forced to endure as a child. However, she's made her peace with it. Despite all her losses, she has friends and family she would die for on the Southern end of the fold. She’s found a purpose in mapmaking, and she’s going to be content with the simple life that awaits her.

    Yet, some part of her has always longed for more. A greater life that might explain why she’s drawn to the darkness of the fold. She can hide it all she wants but she cannot hide from the man in the shadows. The one she's pulled towards in her dreams. Or her nightmares. But the things that are seen in sleep should never feel so real.

    When her brother is chosen to go into the fold, everything changes. She's not prepared for what it leads to or who she becomes as a result. Nor is she prepared for General Snow, leader of the Grisha army and a man who feels all too familiar. A man she's drawn to without understanding why. It's almost as if there is something more between them, something deeply powerful and almost carnal, that she can’t see. That is until she’s cut open and a part of her is set free.
