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.
