  1. Summary

    Targaryens and Chaos are synonymous with one another.

    EDIT 1: 2/24/19 - hello friends! Given the release of Fire and Blood, I just felt it prudent to note that this series was written when the only real information we had on certain Targaryens was through The World of Ice and Fire. As such, some things may no longer be considered canon. I will likely start a new series soon, similar to this one in nature, based off Fire and Blood and will update accordingly about where you can find it. Thanks!

  2. Summary

    The Life and Times of Rhaelle Targaryen

    (or, an AU where Aegon V's kids do as they're goddamn told- sorta- , where Aegon V has a little more spine, and how their lives change because of it. Lots of OCs, unfortunately, but lots of minor background characters discussed in ASOIAF that I hope I get to flesh out.)

    EDIT 1: 2/24/19 - hello friends! Given the release of Fire and Blood, I have decided to let this story sit awhile. I FULLY INTEND ON PICKING BACK UP ON THIS CONCEPT, THOUGH IT MAY BE UNDER A NEW SERIES, AND LIKELY WITH MORE CANON CHARACTERS. However, I am leaving this up because I'm actually really proud of my writing in this. So keep a look out for a new story by me, and I hope to update with relevant information soon!

    Summary

    "I am the queen of spades, I am the wasp that stings, I am the dark serpent. I am the invulnerable animal who passes through fire and is not burned." - Elena Ferrante, The Days of Abandonment

    Rhaella thinks perhaps the gods, any gods, have heard her prayers, when Aerys vomits up blood in bed. (Aerys dies before the 'trial' of Rickard and Brandon Stark can commence. In King's Landing, Rhaella at last finds her footing. On Dragonstone, Elia makes her preparations. And in the Tower of Joy, Lyanna comes to a series of cold realizations).

    Summary

    "You saunter beside me, talking of the beauty of the morning, not even knowing that there has been a flood." - Margaret Atwood, "After the Flood, We."

    Mother pauses, having reached the end of all her curls, and then splays her palm flat on Argella’s head, as if to impart some wisdom or blessing. “He left Jenny Mudd at Summerhall,” she says quietly, because there are little mice and spiders and birds all around the Red Keep, and they all wind their merry little way back to Aegon and his upstart Hand. Argella’s impending good father has never been anything but kind, gracious, and conciliatory to her and her family. But they do not forget, and neither does he. Her father was one raven away from declaring rebellion against the Iron Throne when Aegon finally managed to bring his boy to heel.

    (Duncan weds Lyonel Baratheon's daughter, but refuses to set aside his beloved Jenny. Argella Baratheon dreams of rain, and waits for the flood.)

    Summary

    Elia looked at her incredulously. “And you expect me to marry him and straighten this all out? Why would he listen to a thing I have to say?”

    “He won’t. Your job is to make him listen, Elia. And of all the eligible maidens who will be put forth to him as potential second wives, you are cunning enough to do it.”

    “A viper may strike at a lion and poison it,” Elia reasoned darkly, “But a poisoned lion can still kill the viper with a single swipe of his paw.”

    “There’s my wise girl,” Mother smiled. “But perhaps the viper will not have to strike at the lion at all.”

    (Elia Martell becomes the Lady of Casterly Rock due to her mother's machinations. Robarra Baratheon becomes a princess due to a demand for a bride of Targaryen blood. The seeds of rebellion are planted all the same.)
