    Summary

    AU where Jon is the true born son of Ned Stark and Arya is the 'bastard' brought home from war. Growing up as the female bastard of a great lord Arya was always told by her step-mother that there was only one path to happiness for her - to grow into a beautiful accomplished woman and convince some lowly, aged bannerman that her father's favor was worth the shame of taking a bastard as a wife. From the moment she was brought to Winterfell Catelyn Stark began to count down the days until she could be pushed out of the castle and into the arms of a husband. But her father, thank the Gods, loved her enough not to rush that day and her brother Jon did all that he could to see that no one thought that their advances would be appreciated. But one day Winterfell is visited by someone Jon can't scare away, someone even her father has a hard time saying no to. And that is the day when Arya Snow's life changed forever.

    Summary

    King Aerys Targaryen's extreme paranoia delays Rhaegar's betrothal to Elia Martell until he is twenty-two. But when the King suspects the Starks of plotting against him, he breaks the betrothal to promise his eldest son to the noble house's only daughter, Lyanna Stark.

    The arrangement does not sit well with either party. The fourteen year old Lyanna resists her cage and her new husband; the older Rhaegar finds himself discomforted by her immaturity and willful nature. The king's madness worsens, and intrigue further interrupts the already volatile atmosphere of King's Landing.

    In the North, Brandon's reckless behavior puts him, and Ned, in an uncomfortable situation, while thousands of miles south, the Martells stews over the insult paid to Elia. Somewhere in the middle, a storm lord still desires the girl he was meant to have while a lioness plots her way into power.

    or

    Lyanna marries Rhaegar and everything happens except love at first sight.

    Summary

    Lyanna Stark decides against taking flight from her marriage, and begrudgingly marries Robert Baratheon. Within the year, she becomes a widow at the young age of seventeen, with half the realm believing she had a hand in it. Now free from the bonds of marriage, and her place at Storm's End, Lyanna returns to Winterfell with no intention of remarrying.

    Rhaegar Targaryen is widowed when Elia Martell dies in childbed, attempting to give her husband his third child. The child, a girl, is lost alongside her mother. The prophecy and the realm demands that he remarry, calling for a flurry of young maidens to vie for his attentions, and one who is unsure if she desired his attention at all.

    Yet this pair had almost known intimacy before. Whether they shall know it again, only the Gods can say.
