    Summary

    The watch arrives from a local courier, in an Apple bag, not in a box with international postage, so she has no reason to suspect it's from Ted.

    But, it is. Of course it is.

    He calls – FaceTimes, actually – only moments after she's unwrapped it, having given up looking for a note.

    "You ready to be walking buddies?" he says, holding up his own wrist and matching watch for the camera to see.

    (post-s1, Rebecca/Ted)

    Summary

    Three weeks into their delightful slog across Westeros, during yet another charming day of shitting in the woods, eating half-raw squirrel, and trudging his feet bloody, the single most dour and uninteresting woman Jaime had ever met in all of Westeros stopped in the middle of a field, drew a deep breath, and said, “When I was seven, my aunt came to visit with her son. My father told me that as the daughter of the house, it was my duty to show hospitality to my guests and to be gracious to them. I wanted to make him proud. So for three weeks, I let my cousin follow me around and talk to me about spiders.”
