Rating:  T

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.
