* Recommended by: throwaawy, madame_newbie
* Status: In-progress
* Synopsis: The killing of Mad King Aerys Targaryen by person or persons unknown worked out well for virtually everyone, including Jaime Lannister. Disgraced for failing his king (if only they knew) and tasked with protecting no-longer-a-Princess Rhaenys Targaryen until she can be wed to Robert’s eldest legitimate son (whenever Robert gets around to producing one), Jaime must go north with the Starks (a prickly, judgmental lot) to look after her. Cold, bored, and guarding a five-year-old, Jaime might yet learn to be a truly honourable knight – but even far from King's Landing and Cersei, his dangerous secrets might catch up with him. Worse, his aren't the only dangerous secrets in the North…
* Comments: An AU divergence where Jaime never took credit for killing the Mad King and ended up saving Princess Rhaenys. As "reward" for saving the last Targaryen, King Robert [[ReassignedToAntarctica ships]] him off to Winterfell with their new ward. The long separation between himself and Cersei and his prolonged proximity to the Starks... slowly changes him in a believable manner. The addition of [[OCStandIn Rhaenys]] into the mix also brings a new change in the dynamic, especially for Jon and the rest of the Stark children, with its own set of consequences in that subplot. All in all, this is a fic that attempts to humanise Jaime Lannister and I think it does a fairly good job. That isn't to say he won't jump Cersei's bones every chance he gets, however.
** Extremely good AU. It also doesn't shy away from making characters doing unlikeable things. For instance many fics seem to make Catelyn suddenly fine with [[spoiler: Jon being the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna. Here, she's more realistically horrified and demanded Ned to send him away, because Jon's heritage can get her entire family executed.]] The author also nailed down Cersei, brushing just enough on her paranoia and ambitions without turning her into a caricature.

* Comments: This is delightful. It takes literally centuries, but eventually the despicable and despised Joffrey is transformed from a worm into a great leader and an actually good person.

** And that Rhaegar was ''married''. With two children. You ''do'' lock your prophesied bride up in a tower with elite guards when your elopement was grossly illegal and jump-started a massive war that you are losing.

* For those thinking this is merely 'Tony Stark in Westeros', the story has begun to show the ramifications of there being a Stark cousin, including [[spoiler: Jon Snow being legitimized by Tony and becoming his heir, Sam becoming Tyrion's squire, and Arya catching the eye of the Brother of Mutants]]. The author has promised that by the end of the first book the series will go off in a radical new direction.

* Comments: Absolutely phenomenal story. It first makes you laugh and cheer for Joffrey's repeating deaths, then makes you pity him and finally, makes you root for him and want to see him succeed in his quests. The characterizations and character development are detailed and interesting, even for the {{OCs}}. The world building is also another strong point of the story. Warning though, some chapters are really, really long.
