Arya x Gendry + running from the Lannisters + modern au

If it could burn, the Lannisters had burned it; if it could die, they’d killed it. They had even set the woods ablaze where they could, though the leaves were still green and wet from recent rains, and the fires had not spread. “They would have burned the lake if they could have,” Gendry had said, and Arya knew he was right. on the night of their escape, the flames of the burning town had shimmered so brightly on the water that it had seemed that the lake was afire.


He stepped closer, and sniffed at her. “You even smell nice for a change.”

“You don’t. You stink.” Arya shoved him back against the anvil and made to run, but Gendry caught her arm. She stuck a foot between his legs and tripped him, but he yanked her down with him, and they rolled across the floor of the smithy. He was very strong, but she was quicker. Every time he tried to hold her still she wriggled free and punched him. Gendry only laughed at the blows, which made her mad. He finally caught both her wrists in one hand and started to tickle her with the other, so Arya slammed her knee between his legs, and wrenched free. Both of them were covered in dirt, and one sleeve was tom. on her stupid acorn dress. “I bet I don’t look so nice now,” she shouted.

George R.R. Martin, A Storm of Swords


In Hell’s Kitchen, they call him the Bull. Easily six feet tall and weighing close to 175, Gendry Waters, a newcomer to the Empire City’s boxing scene, hails from North Carolina. Waters defeated Walder Vance in three rounds on Wednesday night, barely breaking a sweat. Though the Bull’s following is small, his fame is growing as he mows through the rank-and-file of the city’s clubs. The smart money will keep an eye on this kid early, and catch his next match Friday night.
