* ''Comments'': This author is a professor of Medieval History, and her stories are always incredibly detailed, obviously well done and all around lovely. Her longest fic to date (June 2013) is a [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7932550/1/ 80k post-Dance epic]], but there are many one-shots as well. She usually writes Dany/Jorah and some incredibly well-done Jon/Sansa (she's the main reason for the popularity of the J/S ship in ASOIAF fanfic), but also seems to have a soft spot for Jaime as well.

* ''Comments'': He writes surprisingly detailed psychological insights into the characters. The stories about Stannis are very intriguing and poignant.

* ''Comments'': Dolorous Edditor has a knack for epic-length [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/2115015 canon-divergent]] or [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/2854958 alternate universe]] stories, mostly focusing on Jon Snow but frequently including a tremendously large cast of POV characters. Anyone enjoying novel-length stories in the ASOIAF universe should strongly consider reading any or all of his stories.

* ''Comments'': A fairly prolific writer, with a number of great concepts and "What If"s behind his stories. The only major flaw from this troper's prospective is his consistent portrayal of R+L=J as a love story which goes against Lyanna's character from what we are told.

* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': A divergence after Blackwater. One of the best explorations of Sansa and Sandor's relationship. Not romance or fluff, but a gorgeous, searingly in-character look at what might happen had the Hound taken her from King's Landing.

* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': King's Landing was allowed to fall--a well-orchestrated distraction. But even the best laid plans are not without fault; King Stannis may have escaped, but his queen and heirs have become Daenerys' prisoners.

* ''Synopsis'': "When the Lord of Winterfell dies childless, Rhaegar Targaryen decides to let the last surviving Starks return to Westeros, after thirteen years spent in exile following a failed rebellion. To Eddard Stark and his wife, itís a decade-long dream come true; to their children, born and raised in the Free Cities, itís a brave new world." An [[AlternateUniverseFic alternate universe]] in which Robert died at the trident, and what happened next. A Braavos-raised Robb finds five pups in the snow; Rhaegar is king in all but name, loved by the whole kingdom except for his second son; and a young Daenerys intrigued by Tyrion's tales of his voyage to Valyria, but even more so by Prince Aegon's idea of sailing for the East.
* ''Comments'': Composed by a completed 13k story and its ongoing sequel, this series is beautifully written, planned out to the last detail, and manages to convince the reader that *this* is exactly what would have happened, had things gone only slightly differently. The Stark kids are born and raised in the Free Cities, and it shows, especially in Robb and Sansa; Daenerys is a naive and confident dreamer; and Ned Stark, former rebel turned mercenary, is far from being the calm, powerful lord from canon. Also, Viserys is married to Cersei, and this alone is worth the read.

* ''Synopsis'': A young Jaime Lannister is horrified by the deliberate murder of the royal family by order of his own father. Determined to not follow the path set out before him by Tywin Lannister and find his own, he breaks with his family - and finds an unexpected ally in one Ned Stark.
* ''Comments'': originally composed for Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom, Atri draws a brilliant story on how a young Jaime Lannister manages to strike out on his own after getting out of his father's shadow, using his knowledge of mining to become his own man. However, this rift, and Ned's with Robert, opens the door for Tywin to start influencing Robert and making him more pliant to his demands.

* ''Recommended by:'' Apocrypha
* ''Status:'' Complete (sequel soon to come)
* ''Pairings:'' Rhaegar Targaryen/Lyanna Stark, Ned Stark/Catelyn Stark, various others
* ''Synopsis:'' King Aerys Targaryen's extreme paranoia delays Rhaegar's betrothal to Elia Martell until he is twenty-two. But when the King suspects the Starks of plotting against him, he breaks the betrothal to promise his eldest son to the noble house's only daughter, Lyanna Stark. The arrangement does not sit well with either party. The fourteen year old Lyanna resists her cage and her new husband; the older Rhaegar finds himself discomforted by her immaturity and willful nature. The king's madness worsens, and intrigue further interrupts the already volatile atmosphere of King's Landing. In the North, Brandon's reckless behavior puts him, and Ned, in an uncomfortable situation, while thousands of miles south, the Martells stews over the insult paid to Elia. Somewhere in the middle, a storm lord still desires the girl he was meant to have while a lioness plots her way into power. Or: Lyanna marries Rhaegar and everything happens except love at first sight.
* ''Comments:'' This fic is undoubtedly one of the best I've ever read. A lot of Rhaeger/Lyanna fics have their passionate affair be the center and ignore everything else. This one, however, focuses on how said marriage shuts down the Rebellion before it can begin, and how that affects the rest of the realm. Rhagaer and Lyanna's relationship does develop, but it's a ''very'' slow burn, as Lyanna holds no small amount of resentment over her ArrangedMarriage, while Rhaeger himself is more interested in managing the affairs of the realm than his new wife. [[ForWantOfANail Some things change]], [[InSpiteOfANail some things don't]], but it's a great read all the way, with little actual combat but lots of political tension, sub-plots, and character arcs. The fic has my favorite Rhaegar characterization by far and nails most other characters; my only qualm is that the author tends to switch between tenses, but after a few chapters I was so caught up I didn't even notice anymore.
* ''Rating:'' Mature for some sex scenes and King Aerys being, well, [[TheCaligula himself]]

* ''Status:'' Complete
* ''Pairings:'' Myrcella/Trystane, Oberyn/Ellaria
* ''Synopsis:'' Septa Eglantine's duty was to accompany Myrcella to Dorne. Princess Arianne's duty was to graciously receive her. But neither woman was quite prepared for the other.
* ''Comments:'' This fic explores what was going on in Sunspear from the time Myrcella arrived to just before Oberyn travelled to King's Landing for the royal wedding, and it does an amazing job fleshing out Dorne and the Dornish people, as well as highlighting the kingdom's difference from the rest of Westeros. [[OcStandIn Eglantine]] is very much [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero a product of her environment]], but such a deep and complex character that you can't help but empathize with her. Watching her develop a relationship with Arianne, who's as far from Eglantine's concept of a proper princess as possible, is such a delight.

* ''Pairing(s):'' Rhaegar Targaryen/Elia Martell, Robb Stark/Asha Greyjoy
* ''Synopsis:'' An AU where Rhaegar Targaryen won the Battle of the Trident . Not what you would expect at all, though.
* ''Comments:''This is probably the best ASOIAF fanfic I have ever read. It manages to be slightly darker than it's source material, if that is even possible. It shows how Rhaegar's obsession with the prophecy affects himself and his family, as well as the kingdom. I really don't want to say much, as I don't want to spoil anything, but it is still very gripping.

* ''Status'': Complete. The sequel, "[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/6070291?view_full_work=true The Devils are Here]]" - In Progress
* ''Synopsis'': Still unmarried and unbetrothed, Prince Rhaegar Targaryen is urged to find a bride at the tourney at Harrenhal. With King Aerys growing more unhinged as each day passes, the Dragon Prince must secure his line in order to overthrow the Mad King. Lyanna Stark is chosen to wed the prince, much to her displeasure, and must leave the North to play princess with the dragons. But she quickly learns that the fire burns deadly in the royal family, and winter has no place in King's Landing. Hell, she finds, is empty and all the devils are at Court.
* ''Comments'': This fic has some similarities to the previously recommended The Shadow of Your Heart by crossfirehurricane in that a Rhaegar who never married Elia goes on to marry Lyanna. The difference here is the time frame and the way the characters are portrayed. Rhaegar is shown slightly closer to how the books describe him to be, as is Lyanna. Rhaegarís obsession with the Prince Who Was Promised Prophecy is shown here quite well, and the romance between him and Lyanna is slow to build, but also feels natural as well. A well worth read.

* ''Synopsis'': Alternate Universe in which Aegon Targaryen VI was not ferried away across the Narrow Sea but was raised secretly in Westeros, being prepared and guided for a future in which songs and laughter cease and die unless he can stop it. Where Jon Snow received word of "Arya's" Marriage and suffering at the hands of Ramsay Bolton and accepted King Stannis' proposal to be legitimized and marry the wildling princess Val. As what is your honor and duty worth at the stake of a sister or brother. And of Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains, and Queen of Freedom Bay when finally, within grasp of her greatest desire, finds that Westeros has no desire to be liberated. Is it better to forsake vengeance and what one knows is justice for the prospect of a future out of your hands or to gamble with the lives of thousands to save millions?
* ''Comments'': This fic focuses on an alternate version of the last two books, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons that details an Aegon Targaryen VI that grew up differently and his invasion of Westeros, plus explores the scenario is which Jon Snow actually did join Stannis. Aegon is a lot more interesting in this story and part of me wishes the book Aegon/Griff was a bit more like this Aegon. The story is ulimately a lot of fun to read and is easily among my favorite ASOIAF fanfics.

Modern AU. Multi-ship. Central ships: Ned/Cat, Cersei/Jaime, Dany/Jorah, Jon/Sansa



* ''Comments'': To put it quite simply, not only the best modern AU this troper has ever read, but probably the best fic as well. The writing is as masterful as ever, and every little thing from canon is reflected into the modern world, all the pieces fitting so perfectly and nicely that make the story a pleasure to read.

* ''Synopsis'': Three hundred years after Aegon the Conqueror and his sisters traveled east to Essos and built a new empire on the ashes of the Valyrian Freehold. Now the known world is a place of war. The Targaryen Empire is pressed by enemies, the Seven Kingdoms, never united, war amongst themselves and forces contrive to pull them all apart. Amidst all this are a prince and princess who fear themselves ruined by the horrors they've endured. Together they might be the hope their people are looking for. More importantly, they might be the dream both abandoned long ago.
* ''Comments'': A huge fanfic which is also has one of the most interesting timeline PODís for which it diverges it, ďWhat if Aegon the Conqueror went East instead of West?Ē A grand story on an epic scale, the story stars both Prince Jonarys Targaryean(this AUís version of Jon Snow) and Princess Sansa Stark as well as a whole cast of characters who live within this world. Honestly, if I had any one complaint, itís that some of the canon extinct houses like the Gardnersís and Durrandonís are basically just the Tyrellís and Baratheonís with their last names renamed. Still itís a great fic and I highly recommend it.

* ''Synopsis'': Rhaegar, Viserys, and Daenerys are the children of Aerys and Rhaella we all know, their other siblings dying in childbirth or the cradle. But what if they had lived? This story is an AU where four more of the Mad Kingís children grew to adulthood. A world where Daenerys had six older siblings instead of two. King Rhaegar rules over the Seven Kingdoms, a land divided in its loyalties while old wounds still linger after Rhaegar's Rebellion against the Mad King. Princess Daenerys, youngest of the kingís siblings, has grown up at a court full of dragons and powerful families, most vying for greater power. While some dream of a resurgent Targaryen dynasty, others foster their own ambitions toward the Iron Throne.

* ''Synopsis'': some time after Aegon's Conquest, Torrhen Stark found a type of cattle that fitted very well in the harsh winters of the North, so he started to promote its breeding and ranching. Three hundred years later, the North is well populated and incredibly rich, the Old Gods are widely worshipped, greenseers and skinchangers are a normal sight in every city and town, a canal connects the Narrow Sea and the Sunset Sea through the Neck, Winterfell is one of the greatest cities in Westeros and Eddard Stark is well-beloved by the North. But when Jon Arryn dies, Robert Baratheon comes north, and things begin to move...
* ''Comments'': a very interesting, extremely well-written story, where such a simple thing as a cow leads to a more powerful, better developed North and to create a society that is alien yet so familiar to those that have read the books. For example, even though Winterfell is incredibly huge, it still has the feeling of home for the Stark characters, and the Starks have a large number of cadet branches (even the Greystarks, who in canon were wiped out to a man) that provide a lot to the new society, including a large court of Northern ladies around Sansa. Of course, the changes are not all for good: the canal leads to Dorne hating the North - since the former do not have as many ships appearing in their ports - while Theon is worse adjusted to a very different Winterfell since Robb and him are not friends. Very highly recommended if you like the Starks.

* Crossover with ''Literature/HarryPotter''
* ''Synopsis:'' Harry fell through the veil due to a battle in the Ministry many years after the fall of Voldemort. Sent through time and space, he fell in the lands of Westeros as a young child. Raised under the protection of Lord Stark, how will Harry change the game?
* ''Comments:'' Much like the synopsis says, Harry fell through the veil and landed in Westeros as a child and through a series of events, he fell under the protection of Ned Stark after saving his life during an ambuse in Robert's Rebellion. The story actually starts with the events of ''Game of Thrones'' and any details of his life in Westeros before then is discussed through dialogue with the other characters. Fair warning that Harry might come across as too powerful to some people, however he is hardly omnipotent [[spoiler: as demonstrated by his inability to prevent Ned Stark's beheading]] nor does he always make the best decisions. This story is quite well-written, though the author doesn't seem to update very regularly, with his last update having been in April. It also seems to be following the original plot laid out by GRRM so far, albeit with some deviations especially in Chapter 6.

* ''Comments:'' This fic begins years before the events of ''Game of Thrones''. Harry is the second son of Robert Baratheon and Cersei Lannister behind Joffrey [[spoiler: or so King Robert thinks]]. He also just so happens to have retained some memories and abilities from his past life where he was a wizard who went to Hogwarts, though he lacks a wand to actually perform magic with. It is well-written and actually seems to be fairly regularly updated.
* It has a trope page [[FanFic/ThePrinceWhoWasPromised here]].

[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8144308/1/Harry-Stark-of-the-Red-Winter Harry Stark of the Red Winter]] by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1251262/oso1991 oso1991]]
* Recommended by: [=ShotgunWilly=]
* Crossover with ''Literature/HarryPotter''
* ''Synopsis:''
Synopsis: Harry fell through the veil due to a battle in the Ministry many years after the fall of Voldemort. Sent through time and space, he fell in the lands of Westeros as a young child. Raised under the protection of Lord Stark, how will Harry change the game?
* ''Comments:'' Comments: Much like the synopsis says, Harry fell through the veil and landed in Westeros as a child and through a series of events, he fell under the protection of Ned Stark after saving his life during an ambuse in Robert's Rebellion. The story actually starts with the events of ''Game of Thrones'' and any details of his life in Westeros before then is discussed through dialogue with the other characters. Fair warning that Harry might come across as too powerful to some people, however he is hardly omnipotent [[spoiler: as demonstrated by his inability to prevent Ned Stark's beheading]] nor does he always make the best decisions. This story is quite well-written, though the author doesn't seem to update very regularly, with his last update having been in April. It also seems to be following the original plot laid out by GRRM so far, albeit with some deviations especially in Chapter 6.



* Crossover with ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''
* ''Synopsis:'' In this Crossover SI a normal person is given the powers of the Dovahkiin and unceremoniously dumped into Westeros and informed by the power that send him there that he needs to conquer the Seven Kingdoms lest some unforeseen horror befall the lands.
* ''Comments:'' The SI arrives literally on the eve of Aegon's conquest, in the general area that would become Kings Landing. Of course, to keep things more interesting and same being also causes a storm to wreck the Aegon's fleet meaning the SI can't pull a soft conquest or let the Tangarians to the heavy lifting.

*''Recommended by'': Vampireandthen
*''Status:'' Ongoing
*''Pairing(s):'' Rhaegar Targaryen/Elia Martell, Robb Stark/Asha Greyjoy
*''Synopsis:'' An AU where Rhaegar Targaryen won the Battle of the Trident . Not what you would expect at all, though.
*''Comments:''This is probably the best ASOIAF fanfic I have ever read. It manages to be slightly darker than it's source material, if that is even possible. It shows how Rhaegar's obsession with the prophecy affects himself and his family, as well as the kingdom. I really don't want to say much, as I don't want to spoil anything, but it is still very gripping.

* Recommended by: throwaawy
* 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 Robertís 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 Ė 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 NorthÖ
* 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.
