    Summary

    Based on the song Devil's Backbone by the Civil Wars:

    "Oh Lord, Oh Lord, what have I done?
    I’ve fallen in love with a man on the run
    Oh Lord, Oh Lord, I’m begging you please
    Don’t take that sinner from me
    Oh don’t take that sinner from me...

    ... Oh Lord, Oh Lord, he’s somewhere between
    A hangman’s knot, and three mouths to feed
    There wasn’t a wrong or a right he could choose
    He did what he had to do
    Oh he did what he had to do..."

    For the SanSanFanFan birthday gift fic thingy.

    Summary

    "You make the same mistake because it’s not a mistake, you do it on purpose." He shrugged. "It’s safe. " He rubbed her back. "It’s easy to date and fuck and feel infatuated and horny for a few weeks or even a month, sometimes two when you’re feeling like pretending you’re in love. Holidays, etc. And the breakups aren’t hard. You cry a little and play the wounded bird, and you get rescued every time." He pet her hair and laughed to himself. "I know, because I do it, sans being rescued. "

    Summary

    1957. A decade after the War, Sandor Clegane teaches history at an all-boys boarding school in the North. When the new music mistress arrives, everything changes. She's beautiful but reserved, lovely but haunted - like the rest of the staff at the school, who all have their own pasts to deal with. Especially Clegane.

    High school trope x historical AU = something set in Westeros but with roots in post-WWII Britain. Historically, this was a time of huge change, with the fall of the aristocracy and the rise of the working and middle classes. Because I just can't write a trope. Because I have to get some social bloody commentary into it, don't I?
