queen of the iron islands


game of thrones meme: parallels [1 of 3] » daenerys targaryen vs yara greyjoy

“have the iron islands ever had a queen before?” “no more then westeros.” … “lord tyrion tells me your father was a terrible king.” “you and i have that in common.” “we do, and both murdered by a usurper as well.” 

Concept: Yara Greyjoy travels to Meereen, then meets and seduces Daenerys. They team up, politically and romantically, combine their ships/dragons and go off to take the Iron Throne. 

Meanwhile, on the other side of the narrow sea, Margaery and Sansa reunite and finally admit they’re in love. Tommen gives up the throne to Margaery and Sansa and goes off to live on an island filled with kittens where no one can hurt him. Sansa becomes Queen of the North and Margaery is Queen of the South. Together they rule Westeros. 

Yara and Daenerys arrive in King’s Landing with their armies and demand to speak to the King (or they’ll burn shit and take the city by force etc etc). They’re laughed at and told they can’t meet the King, but they can meet the Queens. Intrigued, they agree. 

After meeting, the four of them decide it would be foolish fight each other and destroy thousands of lives and so they come to an agreement. Daenerys and Yara will return to Meereen and conquer the rest of Essos. Sansa and Margaery will continue to rule Westeros, with the exception of the Iron Islands. Yara becomes Queen of the Iron Islands and they become part of the Yara/Daenerys empire. Daenerys is given some Targaryen memorabilia as a gesture of peace and friendship.

And so the greatest alliance the world has seen is created. They help each other out (”oh you have a white walker problem? No worries, we’ll pop over with my dragons and help you sort that out”) which leads to two happy and prosperous kingdoms. Thus the world is ruled by lesbian queens and everything is perfect. 

The Drowned God’s Daughter

Pairing: Theon Greyjoy x Reader


A/N: My first Theon, yayyy!! This story was made possible by an argument had between my boyfriend and I that went a little something like this. “No there can’t be mermaids in Westeros”. “There’s literally dragons and a woman who brings people back from the dead”. “Ok, but there can’t be mermaids”. “Ok, but have you seen what the Night King can do”? Followed by silence and a winning argument.  

Prompt; Theon has finally gotten away from Ramsay, but still finds himself struggling with his true identity. While on a ship travelling to the Iron Islands, a storm hits and Theon “falls” overboard. In Westeros, mermaids are said to serve and attend those ironborn who drown in the sea. As you watch Theon slowly give up on life, you go against your duty and try to save him instead. 

Theon is nervous. More nervous than usual today. His hands won’t stop shaking and he feels like his heart is going to fall out of his ass at any second.  It’s not like going home is a scary thought; it’s the going home alone that has him on edge. With Yara gone, he is supposed to be the King of the Iron Islands but he can barely remember his own name. 

He knows Ramsay is dead, people have told him time and time again that Sansa had gotten justice for the both of them. But, Theon still finds himself looking over his shoulder every few seconds waiting for Ramsay to be there wearing a giant smile and aiming a bow and arrow at him. Sometimes the worry is so real that he actually does see the bastard standing there and it sends him into a panic. 

It’s the kind of panic that Theon realizes he will never shake. The anxious feeling only fuels his confirmation that he cannot rule these Iron Islands. Sure, the Dragon Queen and her new husband had given him an army so large no one would try to usurp him, but he shouldn’t need them, he needs to be as strong as Yara. He can’t be as arrogant as the old Theon and he cannot be as cowardly as Reek. He needs to find a balance between the two that he fears will never come.

Queen Of The Iron Islands

(Yara x Reader)

Yara was standing at the window when you woke up, she was lost in her thoughts, staring out over the ocean. You got out of bed and walked over without her noticing you. She tensed for a moment when you slung your arms around her neck but relax once she realized it was you.

You kissed her neck and moved your hands down over her breasts, down to her stomach while you smiled to yourself. Yara grabbed your wrist and spun you around, your back pressed against her now. You yelped when she suddenly bit down hard into your shoulder, giving you a sly smirk.

„You surprised me, little girl.“

„You weren’t paying attention, so it’s your fault.“ You reply and laugh quietly while she leaves kisses all over your body.

Yara steps in front of you, her hands on your shoulders as she watches you intensely. Her face is very serious and stressed all of a sudden and you wonder what’s going on.

„Y/N…I can’t be together with you anymore.“

„W-what? Why…why not I thought you…“ Your voice suddenly breaks and tears begin to appear in the corner of your eyes as you look up at her. You didn’t understand, everything had been fine just moments ago and now she didn’t want to see you again.

„It’s not what you think, love. My father died and I’m going to rule the Iron Islands but I’d never be able to make you my queen and you deserve better than to be my mistress.“

„I don’t care! I don’t care as long as I’m able to be with you.“

„No, I don’t want that for you, you deserve to be happy.“


„I’m sorry I should go.“ Yara removes her hands from your shoulders and gives you a kiss on the cheek before she quickly hurries out of the room.

You remain silent, staring at the place where she was standing only seconds ago while the tears run down your face and you quietly begin to sob.

You tried to talk to Yara in the following days but she wouldn’t listen to you, wouldn’t even see you.  You didn’t know what else to do, if she ordered her guards to keep you out there wasn’t much you could do anyway. It wasn’t fair that she just decided on her own without even hearing what you wanted. At first you had been sad and desperate but now you were angry.

It hadn’t been long since you went to bed when your door suddenly flew open and Yara appeared in the door frame. You sat up straight in bed and looked around in confusion.

“We have to go.”

“What’s going on?”

“We have to go! Now! Get your stuff.”

“Yara! You don’t talk to me for days and now we suddenly have to go? Where? Why?”

Yara takes a deep breath to calm down before she speaks again, “I lost the kingsmoot, my uncle is going to kill us if we don’t go now. He will kill you if you stay. Now get everything you need, we don’t have time.”

“Fine.” You say as you jump out of your bed and get dressed. Your anger at her was slowly surging again the longer you were awake. Yara watched you from afar and studied your face. She could see that something was wrong, knowing all too well how you acted when you were angry.

“Now’s not the time but we’ll talk about everything later.” Yara says and pulls you out of the room with her.

okay but like, season 6 of game of thrones ended with

a QUEEN in the iron throne being crowned without a king

a QUEEN-to-be coming to westeros in the ships of a QUEEN-to-be of the iron islands, and also, with alliances with the female “”royal family”” of dorne and the lady of house tyrell

yet everyone is cheering for jon being the king in the north, and he wouldn’t even be king in the first place if his sister hadn’t saved his ass and lady mormont hadn’t wiped the floor with the other northen houses

Let's talk about Theon,

He went from a brainwashed man, who was dehumanized on a daily basis, to a man who rescues a girl who he considers a sister, and then escapes and gets her to safety with full knowledge of Ramsay’s power and consequences of his actions. Then he goes back home, where everyone pretty much has given up on him and mocked him, and supports his sister as queen of the Iron Islands. He then goes with his sister to meet Daenerys, and supports her as queen of the Seven Kingdoms. He wants to do GOOD. He has seen the worst of the world and wants change, a good change. He wants a better world, a better future, and is willing to give his life for it.
