    Summary

    “Why come back?”

    He looks at her.

    He could lie and shrug it off with a cruel quip or an insult and so she’d stop asking.

    Or he could tell her that he woke up on a weirwood after dreaming of giving her a sword that glowed while his own stopped and after dreaming that he handed her his flower, too, because that is what happened —

     

    (Cersei threw it back in his face just before his father gave him a sword and both disappeared into the darkness, and when Brienne’s chains around her wrists parted like silk and he conjured that sword for her, he also couldn’t keep it in his hands anymore and so he told her to keep it safe and she had nodded and cradled it against her chest with her free hand, the golden petals looking so fragile against her large, rough palm)

     

    — but he’s not so sure he can.

    He shrugs.

    “I dreamed of you,” he tells her, and he leaves it at that, and if her eyes widen a bit and her mouth parts as he walks ahead, well, it’s a better look on her than either scorn or disdain.

    Summary

    “Excuse me,” Tywin Lannister grits through his teeth, “my son is doing what?”

    Stannis tries to not sigh loudly. It would not do in front of the Hand of the King.

    “You have the raven, my lord. He says he wishes to resign from the Kingsguard as he has not been here for a full year and does not plan to come back, and that he’s perfectly happy roaming the Stormlands and the Trident along with the last Evenstar.”

    “The last Evenstar.”

    “Yes.”

    “The abomination.”

    Stannis shrugs. “Technically she is one, but I can assure my lord Hand that she is actually quite competent to discuss with.” He’d know. She had better ideas for actually helping the commoners than most of his advisors. He wishes he could make her one.

    “Competent. She’s an abomination.”

    “She’s a useful one,” he shrugs. “Also, your son does not seem to agree.”

     

     
    Or: in which Jaime goes to Tarth to slay a supposed monster terrorizing the Stormlands to do something honorable with his life.

    It doesn't go like that at all.

    Summary

    Jaime makes the rookie mistake of falling for someone while working undercover; when life hands him a second chance he takes it without thinking, even if it goes against the rules. Convincing Brienne he's worth the chance is going to be the challenge.

     

     

    He forgot the main thing, that Brienne didn't know or care about Jaime Lannister. Brienne cared about Jay Hill, and Jay used her and abused her trust. She has few reasons to trust Jay and even fewer to trust or care for Jaime.

    Summary

    “Look, I’ve made a lot of questionable decisions, and I’m not even including the time I tased Thor or that thing with the alien spaceship and the tequila. But,” she added hastily as she saw his mouth open to ask a question, “my point is, getting naked in a panic room with an armed stranger I just met five minutes ago is not going to be one of them.”

    James shrugged. "Fair enough."

    (Alternate summary: Five times Bucky Barnes pointed a knife at Darcy Lewis, and one time she almost stabbed him. Not necessarily in that order.)
