A ‘Captive Prince x A Song of Ice and Fire’ AU

He is skilled, he is hot-blooded, he collects his bastards like stray kittens - and he is the Prince of Dorne. But even somebody like Damianos Martell can manage to step into a nest of vipers. He did exactly that when he accidentally crippled the eldest Tyrell son, Auguste, in a tournament, pissing off the whole lot of Highgarden. Auguste Tyrell is not only their heir, but one of the last Blackfyres through his maternal line. And some people want to believe it wasn’t an accident at all…

Despite the rumours and his family bearing a deep grudge against the Martells, Auguste and Damianos quickly became friends after the accident. Even his little brother, Laurent, eventually warmed up after endless months of vicious stares. Tyrell’s little rose turns out to be brilliantly witty, more thorns than petals. Yet, he blushes prettily whenever Auguste teases him with an embarrassing childhood story, in which Laurent thought for the longest time (because of the old Targaryen/Blackfyre traditions) he is to marry his own brother as a grown up, telling every adult complimenting him that he is already promised. The Dornish prince cannot help but to grow fond of the brothers.

Years later, Damianos emerges victoriously in another tournament and is to crown his Queen of Love and Beauty. There’s a flood of shocked gasps going through the crowd when he places the winter roses on Laurent Tyrell’s head, the flowers as blue as his eyes. “Why,” Damianos proclaimes, “it’s all the grace and courtesy he deserves.”

Since then, Damianos has had quite the reputation for letting tournaments turn out scandalously!

“Robert wanted to be loved. My brother Tyrion has the same disease. Do you want to be loved, Sansa?”
“Everyone wants to be loved.”
“I see flowering hasn’t made you any brighter,” said Cersei. “Sansa, permit me to share a bit of womanly wisdom with you on this very special day. 

Love is poison. A sweet poison, yes, but it will kill you all the same.

George R. R. Martin, A Clash of Kings.

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

I was looking at my season 6 The Onion posts and I had way more Jaime ones then I thought enough for a separate post in fact, idk i’m trash. So I thought I’d do a Jaime Lannister Season 6 + The Onion, because I can’t sleep and I’m bored

anonymous asked:

Do we have any evidence that book!Stannis loves Shireen? Maybe we can at least give some credit to the show for exploring that relationship better.

Yes. It’s subtle, because Stannis isn’t good with emotions and even less good with women and girls, but it’s there.

“[Florent] would even have given [the Lannisters] Shireen. Mine only child, he would have wed to a bastard born of incest.” The king’s voice was thick with anger.

- Davos IV, ASoS

Even before that (in the prologue to ACoK no less), his first objection to Robert Arryn as a potential match for Shireen is that he’s too weak and sickly - i.e., Sweetrobin’s not good enough for her. And note the order of priorities here…

“I am king. Wants do not enter into it. I have a duty to my daughter. To the realm. Even to Robert.”

- Davos IV, ASoS

And I would give more credit to the show…but I have to evaluate the show’s depiction of that relationship as a whole. Including its terrible, nonsensical, character-assassinating ending.

I know people who find that ending distressing, so it’s going under a cut.
