i don't think we're in kansas anymore  
who's a bandwagon-jumper? me! me!

I am kind of confused by what this is, but it involves writing fic, as far as I can tell? After making the shiny masterlist, I am mostly cringing at half the stuff on the aforementioned shiny masterlist, but I am a masochist, why do think I love Logan. okay, so.

Fic War

What: Tumblr Fic War

Who: Anyone who reblogs this reposts this.

When: Until everyone is actualfax dead, because this is WAR suckers!


What: Everyone who reblogs reposts is opening their ask box comments up to the most brutal, feelings-inducing prompts anyone who is playing can imagine. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take those prompts and DESTROY EVERYONE with them. Not just angsty stuff either, fluff can be just as bad, as many of you know!

And, it's just— Logan had always been an intense high-school romance, sure. But somewhere along the way, in some secret corner of her mind, she had convinced herself that was all he was; a high-school romance. Explosive, powerful, passionate, and burning itself out eventually.

calculus of a single variable

i have never so much as thought of this ship before, and i'm hazy on everything canon, so i apologize on both counts! [and for the reposts, ugh]

you will be queen someday.

“I will be your queen.”

Robb is polishing his sword, he does not look up.

“You will be queen,” he says, “of a large kingdom somewhere, someday. Your people will write verses to your beauty.”

I will be your queen, she thinks again, but does not say out loud, because she is a lady, and she knows when the gentleman is avoiding her.


The truth is this: Sansa Stark wants to be queen of the Northern winter. It is all she has ever wanted.

(The truth is this: Sansa Stark has always wanted far too much, far too often.)


Robb is beautiful.

“We are not the Lannisters,” he tells her, when she kisses him, softly, once. It is her first kiss. And she is far too bold with him. Her lady mother would disapprove of her boldness. But she would disapprove far more of the sin.

He turns away from her, and he is all muscle and strength; there is no yielding here, “We are not the Targaryens, Sansa.”

She was not aware that the Lannisters and the Targaryens were the only ones allowed to love. She thinks she may have missed that in her lessons somehow.


The next time, it is he who kisses her.

She can feel her lips bruising, because he is hard, and he is angry at himself. Arya is everyone’s favorite sister, and sometimes she is jealous, but she thinks she would not like to be Robb’s. Not his favorite sister.


She writes him letters sometimes, when he is sitting across the room. She writes on her best paper, in her best hand, in the way she has been taught. She does not let him read.

He watched the flames engulf page after page. "Why write at all then?"

A delicate shrug of her shoulders, "because I want to."


The story of Cersei and Jaime Lannister is the thing of legends, she has heard. It is the laughter of the handmaidens and the side-glances of all of King's Landing. And yet it is said that no man in the Seven Kingdoms looks at a woman the way Jaime Lannister looks at his sister.

Robb does not look at her, when he pulls away.

She touches her fingers to her mouth, it feels swollen. She is embarrassed that it will show. It is almost like being a common whore.

"Seven hells," he curses under his breath.

And then he is kissing her again, soft, apologetic, and she thinks this is what being a queen must feel like.

She is not a queen, yet. But she thinks this is what it must feel like, anyway.


Jon does not seem to look him straight in the eyes.

"I have not sinned," he insists, even though he does not know what Jon knows, and if he knows anything at all. But if he says it out loud, it may yet be the truth.


There is a large, yawning gap where his honor once was.

Sansa is just woman-grown.

The first touch of wine to his lips is oblivion. The second touch of her skin is madness.


She will go away, he knows.

And then, she does.


Sansa will not just be queen, she will be queen of the Iron Throne now, someday. Someday.

Every time he swallows, there is an aftertaste at the back of his throat, he does not recognize.

Sometimes, he dreams of her. Sometimes, he is not asleep when he does.


"I love you," she says, for the last time, hurried, desperate. Her hair is not set in the way of the South, as it often is now. It is loose around her shoulders, wild, and this is a woman he did not grow up with.

"We are not the Targaryens," he will repeat, later. He will touch her first.


There is wolf-blood in their veins. Her hair is the color of wildfire.

They are Starks of Winterfell, they are not Targaryens, but what he has come to realize is this: sometimes, fire and blood are the victors nonetheless.


She does not look back. He is glad.

He walks away. He will look back just once.

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
a) as are, like, all of yours.

b) The... fic? I mean, both the ship AND the fic. But I was buying the beginning of the fic when I thought it was one-sided but then Robb decides he wants to tap and he BRUISES her and I was like OMG ILLEGAL ON SO MANY DIFFERENT LEVELS. On that basis I'm sure Ishi will love it, lol.

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
a) Why thank you, sir. I do spend half my life looking for icons, so, haha

b) LOL. Ah, well, but it IS GoT, I'm pretty convinced that that's one fandom, where nothing could be more scandalous than canon itself :D

b)Haha, yeah, I know, but I ship Jon/Arya hard, so basically, I cannot be saved.

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
a) True! I can't wait for more loyalty icons! I only have two at the moment!

b) Haha -- but what I meant was that the Starks aren't canonically scandalous. Also Jon is her favourite broski, so it makes sense. No Ygritte?

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
a) I don't know what that is, but I hope you find nice ones!

b) Hee, I know they aren't, which is why thank god for fanon and headcanon \o/ [I have no particular feelings for either Jeyne or Robb or Ygritte either way, honestly. :s]

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
a) You have nine loyalty icons! I have two. I'm pretty sure that's what they're called.

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
a) OKAY NOW I'M CURIOUS? What are loyalty icons? Is it a category? How do I have nine of them?!

b) No, I haven't! D: I don't know what her character is called in show-verse! I'm only familiar with most characters from fic, lol.
gemma: dw; tardiscranmers on June 5th, 2013 09:43 am (UTC)
Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
a) lol I think you have nine. I didn't count meticulously, heh. But you have a paid account, right? Any icons you have over the limit of thirty (and you ~look like you have about forty) are loyalty icons. You get them per the amount of time you have a paid account! :)

b) OH I SEE. I was so excited, never mind. Her show counterpart is called Talisa. I had no Jeyne feelings but Talisa isn't even a character, tbh. I love Oona Chaplin HARD, but.. no, and none for Talisa, sorry. But I can't wait for you to watch S3. IT'S SO GOOD. Infinitely better than S2, IMO.

[I have to go now I will be back this evening!]

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
a) Oh LOL, I so did not know that's what they were called. You learn something new everyday, etc. :D

b) I AM GOING TO READ SOMETIME THOUGH, I SHOULD, considering how much they're praised :O I don't know anything about canon!Jeyne, but Talisa leaves me cold (as does Robb, to be honest), I think she's very pretty, but I'm not particularly interested in her as a character. I MUST WATCH S3. Especially because everyone is losing it over 3.09 and I'm curious now.

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
[back for this comment because BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. I am leaving now, I swear -- I have an exam in 2 hours.]

a) LOL. I THINK that's what they're called. Sorry if I confuzzled you, though, especially if I am wrong.

b) BWAHAHAHAHAHHA @ 3.09. Knowing what was coming was... hard. But I get why people are losing it. The worst event is yet to come, for me, in 3.10, though I doubt there will be as big a meltdown. You never know how fandom reacts, though.

I actually warmed to Robb in 3.09. I wasn't as cold to book!Robb as show!Robb, but I didn't really give a shit until 3.09, so... worth watching! I love Cat though. I make the oddest choices.

Also FUCK YES SHE IS EXTREMELY PRETTTY!!!!! I love the actress (almost as much as I love Maisie Williams but obviously, not quite as much hah)! But yeah, not a character, tbh.

I LOVE YOU OKAY. This was chilling and haunting at times and yet at others perfectly sweet (for me anyways :P) and I do so love that combination.

Thank you so much my love <3

Re: to know how men breathe | sansa/robb | 1/1
Oh yay, I'm so glad it worked for you? I have literally never thought of this, so I have no idea whether I managed to make anything of the fic at all. But it's an incest ship, so that's automatically awesome.
