    Summary

    An alternate universe version of A Storm of Swords where Jaime is a vampire. Brienne of Tarth is tasked with escorting him back to King's Landing in exchange for Sansa Stark -- a still human Sansa Stark. Everything is the same, except that everything is also different.

    “Why, Cat, I didn’t think you cared.” His voice is droll, his eyes flickering between Lady Catelyn and Brienne. “I haven’t had virgin blood in so long. My mouth is positively watering for a taste.”

     

    Brienne can’t prevent the hot blush that floods her cheeks. The vampire’s eyes practically twinkle.

     

    “She may be as ugly as an aurochs,” he says, pinning Brienne in place with a look, a deadly predator even leashed as he is. “But she blushes deliciously.”

    Summary

    Brienne gathered all her courage: not the battle-courage she could reach for as readily as a sword, but a different courage, a naked, vulnerable kind she had never had need of before. She looked Jaime in the eyes. ‘Are you trying to say you missed me?’

    He made a strange face, then looked away, as if her eyes had burned him. ‘I —’ He cleared his throat, then squinted through the trees. ‘Is that a rabbit?’ he exclaimed, and took off, his horse whinnying at the sudden spur.

    Summary

    “I meant --” Jaime trails off, brow furrowing as he searches for the words to explain the feeling that whispers in the back of his mind. “Do you feel as if we’ve saved each other a million times over?”

     

     

     

    “I kept you from drowning in a tub. You kept a bear from mauling me. I --”

    “I meant before,” Jaime tries again. “Before this life. That somehow this has happened before and will happen again, and we have been and will always be this.”
    --

     

    A bit of a soulmate AU. Jaime is a hopeless romantic who is convinced that he and Brienne are soulmates who have always found each other, and will always find each other. He's not wrong.

    Summary

    His mouth is set in an unhappy line, and she knows he hears it as a sentence she’s passing on him, a just punishment for his crimes. Good, she thinks, yes. I sentence you to live. Live, and find a way to come to terms with it. Live, and never make me watch you ride to your own grave again.

    (Jaime rings the bells, and from there, the future unfolds differently. A story about two tired knights on a slow boat to Tarth, working things out.)
