Admiration and envy, pride and a furious rivalry,
a longing to see a beloved sister succeed,
and a passionate desire to see a rival fall.
Modern AU: Nothing But Ashes
Catelyn, Brandon, Jaime and Elia in the run up to Roberts Rebellion, set in the criminal underworld of Miami.
And as a little boxing day treat, it’s a bit of Cat/Ned.
Yeah, so I did this thing.
It’s my first attempt at fanfic, but it ended up being about 40,000 words so I probably should have started smaller. Anyway, if this goes well and I get some constructive criticism, I may attempt more. I just know that I have some properly filthy Jaime/Sandor action waiting to come out (as we all know, its a criminally underused pairing, alas). This, however, was light on the smut. Easing in gently, as it were, at 27 chapters long…….
Game of Thrones Tarot VIII: Cat/Strength.
Her core is steel. She is strength in all ways, beyond what her body can do. Strength is in her compassion, in her ability to understand and be patient. She has courage to act, and courage in her convictions. She has cunning, a brutal kind of understanding that has been borne of necessity. She is the master of the inner self. Victory is not always won by those who shout the loudest.
Game of Thrones Tarot IX: Sam/The Hermit.
The Hermit is content with his own company. He takes his steps deliberately and with care, going forward with eyes open. He is able to listen to himself, and take wisdom from what he hears. He seeks to learn and become better, removing himself from a cold and scary world which offers him no comfort. He is forever humble, never truly convinced of his own worth, but happy; pride would sit ill on him and distract him from the truth found in introspection. He is the wanderer, but he is not lost.
