He almost wishes the dragons would come to Westeros, so that the world he knows could burn, and take him with it. That way he could at least be with Renly again.

Loras can barely recognise himself anymore. The once proud and beautiful face that shone brighter than the sun is now so deformed he cannot even bear to have a mirror beside him.

He remembers the pain, the intense boiling of his skin; the feeling of being so close to death that it seems cruel to wake up alive again. He still feels the fire every day, a pain that tempts him to find the nearest dagger and open his wrists.
