Jealous Sandor...

(i tried to write jealous Sandor a little differently than I usually would…meaning I tried to make it so he didn’t out right beat the crap out of someone lol. I hope you like it!)

(Word Count: 1,666)

You could see the hidden anger underneath the mask he always worn around others, but there was nothing you could do to calm him. No one knew that you were with him. You were a Lady of rather high noble birth and he…he was a warrior from a small, poor Knight House. No one would understand why you would rather have a man whose face was badly scarred from childhood abuse instead of a “hot” young man from a “respectful” and rich House. Your family only cared about their connection to the crown and to the other powerful families of Westeros. But you only cared about him. About Sandor Clegane.

steamboatclusie  asked:

I've been waiting for the next book in ASOIAF to come out and have been going over "what ifs" out of boredom. In one of Ned's chapters, Renly mentions something about Margery looking like Lyanna and it had something to do with Renly attempting to sway Robert somehow? And I think he brings it up again when he's talking to Stannis in the second book. I was hoping you could shed some light on Renly's plot. I was confused as to his endgame with that plan. Opinions?

I could have sworn I’ve answered this already, but it’s not in my posts at all. (edit: oh right, it was on someone else’s blog.) Anyway, the text you’re referring to:

Ned was not sure what to make of Renly, with all his friendly ways and easy smiles. A few days past, he had taken Ned aside to show him an exquisite rose gold locket. Inside was a miniature painted in the vivid Myrish style, of a lovely young girl with doe’s eyes and a cascade of soft brown hair. Renly had seemed anxious to know if the girl reminded him of anyone, and when Ned had no answer but a shrug, he had seemed disappointed. The maid was Loras Tyrell’s sister Margaery, he’d confessed, but there were those who said she looked like Lyanna. “No,” Ned had told him, bemused. Could it be that Lord Renly, who looked so like a young Robert, had conceived a passion for a girl he fancied to be a young Lyanna? That struck him as more than passing queer.

—AGOT, Eddard VI

“Have you seen Mace Tyrell’s boy? The Knight of Flowers, they call him. Now there’s a son any man would be proud to own to. Last tourney, he dumped the Kingslayer on his golden rump, you ought to have seen the look on Cersei’s face. I laughed till my sides hurt. Renly says he has this sister, a maid of fourteen, lovely as a dawn…”

—Robert Baratheon, AGOT, Eddard VII

Sighing, Renly half turned in the saddle. “What am I to do with this brother of mine, Brienne? He refuses my peach, he refuses my castle, he even shunned my wedding…”
“We both know your wedding was a mummer’s farce. A year ago you were scheming to make the girl one of Robert’s whores.”
“A year ago I was scheming to make the girl Robert’s queen,” Renly said, “but what does it matter? The boar got Robert and I got Margaery.”

—ACOK, Catelyn III

It’s pretty straightforward. Renly didn’t care for the stranglehold the Lannisters had on his brother and the kingdom, what with Tywin being owed millions of gold, Cersei as queen, and Lannister appointees everywhere (including two of Robert’s squires). Renly was also aware of how Robert and Cersei didn’t get along, and it’s also very likely that he suspected the truth about the parentage of Cersei’s children. At the very least he probably guessed their father was not Robert.

So when Renly met his lover Loras’s younger sister, and saw how pretty she was… and he knew that the Tyrells were one of the few families rich and powerful enough to stand up to the Lannisters… well, he planned to bring Margaery to King’s Landing so that she would become Robert’s mistress. With all probability he could even convince Robert to set aside Cersei and take Margaery as queen instead. (Basically an Anne Boleyn plot.) So Renly had this portrait of Margaery painted, and told Robert about her beauty, and even said that she might look like Lyanna, to further appeal to Robert. (Note “a maid of fourteen” is what Lyanna was when Robert last saw her.)

But before the plan could really get moving and Margaery could come to King’s Landing, Cersei’s own plan went into action, and Robert was killed by the boar. So after fruitlessly trying to convince Ned to side with him, Renly got the hell out of King’s Landing before the Lannister coup, went to Highgarden where he married Margaery, and then declared himself king, with all the wealth and armies of the Reach supporting him.

I hope that helps!

My 11 Answers

1. What drew you to Tumblr Roleplaying?

I randomly found a Loras Tyrell blog, I can’t remember how. And I made a Renly one. Cause of reasons.

2. Did you RP somewhere else prior to Tumblr? Where else?

Omegle, Skype

3. What is your favorite part of RPing?
exploring characters in different situations, mostly angst

4. What is your least favorite part of RPing?

DRAMA, negativity

5. Any former muses you miss writing?

I do miss Renly. And Erik, even though he is not abandoned. 

6. What’s your favorite thing about your muse?

That is he is a cinnamon roll. That he is forgiving, caring and he wanted to make a world a better place. That he did not feel ashamed of who he was, that he did not care about what people thought (that’s my goal tbh)
And his relationship with James of course. I cry.

7. Do you think that if you and your muse were to meet, you would get along?

Yeees, I think so. Although I am more cynical than he is, perhaps a bit like James in this one.

8. Is there any genre or setting of Roleplay that you cannot stand?

Alpha-omega, MG-preg, and AUs that make no sense?

9. Do you ever reread threads? Which ones?

Yes, very often. I suppose the ones I like the most?

10. Is there any particular plot or dynamic which you haven’t yet had the chance to RP that you want to? What is it?

Hmmm… I’d love more interactions with Peter Alfred and post s4 meeting with Silver (more of it).
And a plot exploring how was the plantation when Thomas first got there.

11. What are your favorite books?

LOOOTS, “The light between the oceans”, “And the mountains echoed”, “A thousand splendid suns.” Let’s go with these ones.

Queen of Westeros...

Imagine being the Queen of Westeros, a Baratheon, and being courted by Robb Stark where you refuse his advances until he beats your  Uncle and Brother in a fight.

((To anon: I hope you don’t mind that I made the reader a baratheon and I hope you like it!))

((Word Count:1,997))

You had ruled the Seven Kingdoms since you were near fourteen name days, ever since your Mother’s House were dealt with. Alongside your bastard brother turned Knight Gendry and your Uncle Stannis, you reformed Westeros into a land of peace and prosperity that hadn’t been seen since the early days of King Aerys Targaryen’s rule.

Dorne was kept in the fold when Myrcella married Trystane Martell, the Westerlands remained after your Uncle Tyrion took control of Casterly Rock, and you were able to bring the North, Riverlands, and Vale back into the fold when you handed Joffrey, your Mother, your Grandfather, and the Stark ancestral sword Ice over to the Lord of Winterfell, Robb Stark. The Iron Islands tried to continue their rebellion but they were quickly knocked back down by the combined force of the other Six Kingdoms.

“Renly’s made his own Kingsguard,” the onetime smuggler explained, “but these seven don’t wear white. Each one has his own color. Loras Tyrell’s their Lord Commander.” 

It was just the sort of notion that would appeal to Renly Baratheon; a splendid new order of knighthood, with gorgeous new raiment to proclaim it. Even as a boy, Renly had loved bright colors and rich fabrics, and he had loved his games as well. “Look at me!” he would shout as he ran laughing through the halls of Storm’s End. “Look at me, I’m a dragon,” or “Look at me, I’m a wizard,” or “Look at me, look at me, I’m the rain god.” 

The bold little boy with wild black hair and laughing eyes was a man grown now, one-and-twenty, and still he played his games. Look at me, I’m a king.

Brienne was on her feet as well. “Your Grace, give me but a moment to don my mail. You should not be without protection.”

King Renly smiled. “If I am not safe in the heart of Lord Caswell’s castle, with my own host around me, one sword will make no matter … not even your sword, Brienne. Sit and eat. If I have need of you, I’ll send for you.”

His words seemed to strike the girl harder than any blow she had taken that afternoon. “As you will, Your Grace.” Brienne sat, eyes downcast.
