It’s only Jon’s quick reflexes that prevent Sansa from taking her hand off his hair, he seizes on her wrist until she relaxes and begins running her fingers through his curls again.
Another day Ardyn spent within the quiet confines of the antechamber of his apartments within the Citadel. His tablet ensconced in his lap. A favored garish colored cocktail sat upon the table beside him. It was quiet and the attendants left him in peace and tranquility.
Broken now only by the soft click of the large doors leading into his suited. His gaze left the trivial article he thumbed through no longer able to hold his attention. Greeted instead by something far more interesting: the sight of Noctis dressed down with his favorite food upon a plate. “Oh Noct.” Words coming out to a purr.
His husband gave him one of his charming smiles that brightened up the entirety of his face. The plate held up in offering. How could the immortal resist such temptations when placed before him? Ardyn was a man of his vices. Noctis was but the greatest of them that he would fall to again and again.
“Just found it in the kitchens. Thought you might like it.” And still despite all the years they had been together Noctis still came to him with that slightly awkward charm of his endearing as it was.
He was beckoned over with the slow crooking of two fingers and a lascivious smirk upon Ardyn’s features. A swipe of the icing upon his finger that traced a path down the side of Noctis’ neck. “Hmm. I can think of other things I would wish to devour.” His lips lingered over the mess he had made of his husband before his tongue darted out to lap it from pale flesh. A hand to reach and give a soft squeeze to Noctis’ shapely ass. The little gasp he received in turn was a gift within itself.
An arm came about his lover’s waist pulling Noctis carefully in his lap where the tablet occupied no longer. Finally able to give his considerate lover a proper kiss. Ardyn could think of no two things that brought him such contentment now.

GV. WAR OF CROWNS
In the time of crowns, conquerors, and tremendous beasts, there stood two kingdoms,Themyscira and Sokovia. To unite the kingdoms to become one prosperous land, Princess Diana was to marry Prince Pietro. But – darkness befell the kingdoms when a witch visited the grand celebration. Furious over the recent outlaw in magic, she placed a curse upon the lands, vowing that both royal families would suffer dearly for their decision to ban her craft.
Soon after, Pietro was found dead in his chambers, poisoned by a drink. Due to her doubts of marriage, Princess Wanda accused Diana of the terrible act. Diana denied this, claiming she would never have harmed Pietro over fear of marriage. Two days after Pietro’s funeral, Queen Hippolyta was found in the courtyard, having been pushed from her window. It was Diana’s turn to accuse, asserting that Wanda had given the order for Hippolyta’s death to take revenge for her brother’s death.
These serious accusations caused the alliance to crumble and war to be declared. The once thriving lands were now plunged into the strife of warfare, every house aligning with whom they believed to be innocent and worthy of their loyalty. One year later, the battle rages on and Wanda and Diana, both now Queens of their kingdoms, refuse to relent until justice is appeased. Who will you side with?

The hull of this sailing ship comprises the names of the Seven Sleepers and their dog. The tale of the Seven Sleepers, found in pre-Islamic Christian sources, concerns a group of men who sleep for centuries within a cave, protected by God from religious persecution. Both hadith (sayings of the Prophet), and tafsir (commentaries on the Qur'an) suggest that these verses from the Qur'an have protective qualities.
Flanked by two other galleons on the horizon, this carefully drawn
imperial calligraphic galleon sits on a row of waves containing
aphorisms. The imperial galleon with its wind-filled sails is an example
of the sophistication of the Ottoman calligraphic tradition. The
distinctive Ottoman imperial insignia (tughra), located on the stern of
the square galley, dedicates the drawing to Sultan Mustafa bin Sultan
Ahmed III (r. 1757–74) (38.149.1). The prow, deck, hull, and stern of
the galleon are a calligram (an image made out of calligraphic phrases).
It contains the names of the seven sleepers of Ephesus and their dog
Qitmir (35.64.3). The standard on the stern of the boat contains the
apotropaic Throne verse (2:255) from the Qur'an. The combination of
Qur'anic verse and the names of prophets, saints, and heroes found in
the Qur'an endows this calligram with amuletic, auspicious, and
talismanic powers. In the sky, like a sun disk, the dated signature of
the calligrapher reads: Abdu'l Qadir al-Hisari in Aksehir in A.H. 1180 /
1766 A.D. The frame is composed of Ottoman Turkish poetry venerating
the Prophet Muhammad.

“Sometimes while watching Voltron, I think of how Shiro and Pidge’s big-brother-little-sister-ish relationship would remind me of Jon Snow and Arya Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire, and so this came to be. Instead of Direwolves they have dire… lions. Shiro does not have a Scar or the tuft of white hair or the false arm yet, I figured that just as Jon got his facial scars and burnt hand at castle black, Shiro in Game of Thrones verse would receive his injuries/trauma after leaving Winterfell.” -my friend’s description
It’s not his fault he has such a vibrant personality – he’s literally just made like that, complete with a winning smile and golden aura. Not that anyone would take any notice of it. They are gods, after all.
A Reincarnation Group Verse set in a modern Westeros. Open to muses from all fandoms. Running since August 2015.
A thousand years on from the events of The War of the Five Kings, the Iron Throne is now nothing more than a relic, the old families have all died out, the King of the Seven Kingdoms only the title of a figure head as Westeros lives in a democratic monarchy run by a Prime Minister, with the ‘Kingdoms’ now no more than geographical regions that roam into one. Wandering amongst the common people are reincarnations of the significant people of the past, who are only now remembering their past lives and realising who they once were. Section 43, a government faction, takes over in light of these ‘Reborns’, intending to capture any they find…until a list leaked, naming every single Reborn in the Seven Kingdoms. Unrest begins, fights break out, rebel groups as well as cult supporters (such as The Stoneheart Group, The Order of the Wolf, The Iron Fleet) cause violence and the Wildfires, a Lannister support group wanting to put the reincarnated Cersei on the throne, are the worst of the lot, often using explosives to make their point.
People feel like history is repeating itself, and maybe it is, but these people are all around for a second time, they have different lives now, different experiences, and they’re not going to make the same mistakes….they hope.
As group has been running two years, message me here, if you’re interested in joining and I will give you a brief recap of all the plot developments. Also, as it’s reincarnation, your muse does not have to be the same age, same fc or even the same gender that is canon. Non-ASOIAF muses can either apply to be a regular citizen (i.e a non-reborn) or use an asoiaf verse to be their past life.
The hands of Divinity Louis, sends you the crown The scepter, the sword, the law gives to you But it is your virtues and your kindness Which assures you the throne in our hearts

Long ago, the first Weyland conquered Castle Faraday, on the rocky Eastern Coasts, not through combat, but negotiation and quick snap of venomous jaws. For hundreds of years, the Weylands have been the Lords of industry, controlling trade routes and merchandise. They benefit from war and are curt allies to those with a heaviest purse. Their love for the anatomical sciences have gotten them accused of dark magic, especially that of their quest to create the perfect man from reanimating corpses. In fact, it’s rumoured that Lord Peter Weyland’s household runs purely on beings that he created…
The Weyland sigil is a lilac basilisk on a grey sky. Their words are There Must Be More.
LORD SER PETER WEYLAND, the First of His Name, Warden of Eastern Industry,
–his wife, LADY IONA, of House Vickers, died in childbirth,
–MEREDITH WEYLAND, the eldest daughter, fifteen years of age
–DAVID WEYLAND, the heir to Castle Faraday, thirteen years of age
–WALTER WEYLAND, the youngest Weyland child, thirteen years of age, twin to David
The principal houses sworn to Castle Faraday are: Branson, Janek, Shaw, Holloway, Fifield, Daniels, Upworth, Oram, Ripley, Jorden, and Hicks.
Can I ask, what are some of the differences between the powers of the Nightmare King and the Nightingale? Specifically like, shadows vs slurchers, etc. In the beginning of GT, it's mentioned that Augus was able to regain mental stability because he spent six months where no living shadows attacked, ergo, no more Nightmare King. What is the parallel for the Nightingale?
The Nightingale’s abilities are revealed a great deal more in The Court of FiveThrones, and not really in Game Theory at all. The Nightmare King was properly defeated at the end of the Shadows and Light series (hence why there is no more Nightmare King, the Nightingale didn’t even exist as a concept at the beginning of Game Theory, I was just working on the back of the Shadows and Light series), and I’m not sure if you’ve read that, which makes this a difficult thing to answer, since I’m not sure if you’re coming from that history, or from ‘no history.’
But regarding the Nightingale’s abilities, I actually write a transitional chapter between Game Theory and The Court of Five Thrones (which would be this one: The Nightingale and Terho the Mouse Lad) and then go to some lengths to describe the Nightingale’s abilities in The Court of Five Thrones, so in that, everyone sort of finds out more about that villain at the same time.
But re: the differences between shadows/slurchers, the main difference is that slurchers and all other creatures the Nightingale uses are from the underworlds, and brought up into the fae realm, or used down in the underworlds. As opposed to some nightmare-infected sand or celestial origin thing (depending on what you believe) in the RotG/GoC worldbuilding. But the Nightingale is irrelevant at this point in the story - in Game Theory - because GT hasn’t been edited to reflect the updated canon, and yeah, I didn’t even create him until about ¾ of the way through the series, at which point I decided to introduce him into the sequel.
