* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' this is done in the long term by taking "wards", one noble family fostering the child of another. Taking a ward can also be done simply to strengthen ties between already friendly families, but often they take heirs as a polite cover for a hostage, and possibly with the benefit of culturally assimilating the heir of their enemy; Theon ends up with severely conflicted family loyalties and no longer fitting into his family's culture. Danaerys takes children from many powerful families in Mereen, but grows fond of them and refuses to punish them for the crimes of their parents, which her advisers consider to rather defeat the point of the exercise.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' Very common practice in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', with [[GreyAndGrayMorality both heroes and villains doing this is done in the long term by taking "wards", one noble family fostering the child of another. Taking a ward can also be done simply to strengthen ties between already friendly families, but and often for similar reasons]]. Families often send children off to live with other families as wards or squires, but this requires coercion or a huge amount of trust. Some people get KickedUpstairs where they take heirs as a polite cover can be watched, like Harys Swift, [[spoiler:whom Cersei named Hand of the King]]. Some people are unable or unwilling to negotiate for a hostage, and possibly with the benefit of culturally assimilating the heir of their enemy; Theon ends up with severely conflicted family loyalties and loved ones because the terms of release are too demanding (at least to them) or they don't actually care about that person. In other cases, the party holding the hostage has no longer fitting into his family's culture. intention of letting them go regardless.

* Another historical example, this time from 12th century England, concerns King Stephen threatening to hang the small son of one John Marshal if he doesn't surrender his castle. John replies, rather crudely, that he still has the hammer and anvil to make even better sons. In justice to John, King Stephen was a marshmallow (sweet and soft) and everybody knew it. Little William Marshal was ''not'' hanged and grew up to be the most famous knight in England and France.
