Title: they kill us for their sport
Pairing: Elia Martell/Rhaegar Targaryen, Elia Martell/Oberyn Martell, Rhaegar Targaryen/Lyanna Stark
Summary: ”You need only remember this. We are Martells. And we are not weak.”
Why I Love It: Before I read this story, I’d never really given too much thought to Elia Martell. But oh BOY, did that change. The author has a really wonderful prose style: clear, concise, and powerful. It’s told in a series of short scenes, all from Elia’s point of view. Her perspective is one of a bright, passionate woman trapped in a situation not of her choosing, and it’s so beautiful and tragic.
Oooh. Elia/Oberyn, Elia after meeting Rhaegar? Modern or ASoIF.
I went canon with this if that’s okay? :)
The prince was pleasant and charming.
But he was not Oberyn.
Elia knows it, and she knows Oberyn knows it, but that does not make it any easier for either of them when Mother says that she will marry Rhaegar.
