Hi, everyone, I’m smirnoffmule
and my van is running pretty late this month, sorry about that. I’m reccing fic from George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire and I’ll try to keep them coming in for the rest of the month. Fandom:

This fic goes AU before the events of the first book, so technically contains no actual spoilers for the series. I would advise caution if you haven't yet read A Game of Thrones
, though.Why this must be read: By what right does the wolf judge the lion -- Ned Stark takes the Iron Throne, and with it, a Lannister for a wife.
This is an excellent and haunting fic that takes a pivotal character moment from the series and turns it into an AU. I am so impressed at how well the author made this very unlikely couple work without compromising on characterisation. Both Cersei and Ned walk very different paths but remain palpably themselves. This is an excellent character study of Cersei particularly. I really love the unusual, lyrical style, and the way the universe we know keeps trying to assert itself through the story.
