Instead of a coup, the Uchiha decide to up roots and move to Suna. Everyone lives.
What if Rickard Stark had other ambitions?
Or, a history of the Starks, from Torrhen to Rickard, in a world where they spent two and a half centuries building up their wealth and waiting for the perfect moment to declare their independence.

Before the conquest Aegon had a dream. Within the dream he foresaw a future where Westeros was destroyed. A warning within the dream showed the path to Westeros salvation. The Dragon and Dire Wolf must stand together against the approaching darkness.
Generations later Aerys, trusting his sworn brother above all others requests travels north to speak with Rickard Stark. There he sets in motion events that could either save or destroy his House.

„Lord Rickard demanded trial by combat, and the king granted the request. Stark armored himself as for battle, thinking to duel one of the Kingsguard. Me, perhaps. Instead they took him to the throne room and suspended him from the rafters while two of Aerys's pyromancers kindled a blaze beneath him. The king told him that fire was the champion of House Targaryen. So all Lord Rickard needed to do to prove himself innocent of treason was ... well, not burn.“
Jaime Lannister, A Clash of Kings
But what if he did not burn?
Rickard Stark survives the attempt at burning him because the pyromancers could not tie a proper knot.
Watch as he fixes the realm, his family and shit in general from the overall incompetence of kings, lords, knights and other idiots. For though the king may be a mad lackwit, his subjects at least should have a shot at peace and happiness.
