when the wolf comes home

more ASOIAF recs

Back from a wonderful weekend away -- we saw the sun! amazing! And then returned to nearly-unremitting gloom of Oxford. Woe!

But here are some more ASOIAF stories I liked. Many of them are also full of woe.

Goodbye Means Going Away (And Going Away Means Forgetting) (2368 words) by faviconlit_chick08
Relationships: Jon Snow/Sansa Stark
Characters: Rickon Stark, Sansa Stark, Jon Snow, Osha (ASoIaF), Wyman Manderly, Davos Seaworth
Summary: Memory is unreliable. No one understands this better than Rickon Stark.
This story ripped my heart out and then jumped up and down on it a lot. It's really, really good.

this house no longer feels like home by juno_chan
Ned/Catelyn, for the prompt "'Take no wife...' AU where Ned is allowed to take the black, leading to angsty Ned/Cat." Or as the author puts it, angst, angst and more angst.
Who knew Ned not dying could be so tragic?

Crossing the River (8001 words) by faviconsmirnoffmule
Relationships: Catelyn Stark/Walder Frey
Summary: Catelyn makes a different deal with the Lord of the Crossing.
This is a very interesting AU -- and ends on a very interesting note.

A Circle in a Spiral (3727 words) by faviconSomeEnchantedEve
Summary: An examination of Lysa Tully Arryn within the constructs of the five stages of grief/loss. "By the time the war is over, and her husband returns home (how glad she is, she must be, she tells herself), Lysa scarcely recognizes the woman in the mirror. Her eyes are granite, her mouth is steel, and she scarcely remembers the girl who drank and laughed and danced with a boy that she loved. Surely, she decides, that must have been someone else, and not myself. Surely, she wonders, she was never that happy."
This is really beautiful and sad. Poor Lysa. She's usually so easy to discard, you know?

And finally, something totally not angsty at all!
Allies in the Game (1689 words) by faviconSecondStarOnTheLeft
Relationships: Sansa Stark/Willas Tyrell
Summary: There's much to be said for having an ally worthy of one's trust in the game of thrones.
Hot! and sweet, and fun.

Thanks for the recs! :-D Of course everything is full of woe - THIS BE ASOIAF, YO! XD
Your welcome!

I know, the woe is all canon. I still sometimes think that the whole series is going to end with "Rocks fall, everyone dies. Also, ice age and zombie apocalypse!" :-)
