-> He remembered being Harry Potter. Dreamed of it. He dreams of the Great Other too, a creature of ice and death, with eyes red as blood and an army of cold, dead things. He is only the 2nd son of the King, a 'spare', but that changes when things rather left in the dark come to light, and Westeros is torn asunder by treachery and ambition. Winter is coming... but magic is might.

* AlphaBitch: Elaine Lydden post-TimeSkip
** LovableAlphaBitch: Cerenna and Myrielle Lannister, especially Myrielle.
* AlwaysSecondBest: Joffrey is afraid of Harry surpassing him, something he confides to in his mother. Cersei already senses this might lead to trouble.
* BerserkButton: Don't mess with Aeryn in front of Harry. Just don't. Hurting or threatening to hurt Myrcella or Cersei is also a pretty stupid thing to do.
** Jaime isn't at all happy when Harry pesters him with questions about the Sack of King's Landing and his betrayal of King Aerys.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Harry again, as Allar Deem and friends discover.
* BigBrotherBully: Joffrey, as usually, but here there's more emphasize on the possibility that he sexually abuses Myrcella.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Harry is very concerned with Myrcella's wellbeing.
* BrokenPedestal: After [[spoiler: his encounter with the ghosts of Elia and Rhaenys]], Harry's respect for his father all but vanishes.
* BrutalHonesty: Genna plainly tells Aeryn that she'll always be known as "the Black Prince's whore", but softens it by saying she can still be happy as a [[TheMistress mistesss]].
* [[SonOfAWhore Daughter of a Whore]]: Aeryn
* DomesticAbuse: Cersei is abused by Robert, but tries to hide it from the children. Harry finds out when the three of them get into an argument.
* DrowningMySorrows: Tyrion gets ridiculously drunk after learning that Tywin is giving Casterly Rock to Harry. He then proceeds to give Harry a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech verbal beatdown]].
* CallingTheOldManOut: Harry calls Robert out for condoning the deaths of innocent people, namely Elia and her children, during his rebellion.
* CoolOldLady: Harry's great-aunt Genna.
* CuteGhostGirl: Subverted. The female ghosts Harry encounters are all disturbing in their own way. Special notice goes to [[spoiler: Elia Martell]], who, instead of the FragileFlower Harry expects her to be, is one existential plane away from a [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge bloody rampage]].
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Myrcella and Aeryn. Very much subverted with Cersei, as in Canon.
* HighClassCallGirl: Aeryn's mother.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Cersei insists that Harry try to get along with Joffrey because they're brothers, but when he reminds her that Tyrion is her brother, she tells him to shut up.
* IncestSubtext: Mrycella often fantasies about her and Harry in the role of Queen Naerys and Aemon the Dragonknight. A conversation between her and Cersei compares her separation from Harry to that of Cersei from Jaime.
* InSeriesNickname: Harry has a few-Harry the Kind, the Black Lion, the Black Prince.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Harry, by way of being a wizard.
* JacobMarleyApparel: Used disturbingly so, considering all the gruesome deaths that happened within the Red Keep. Princess Rhaenyra actually has a high status among the other ghosts for how horrifically her body was mutilated after being fed to her brother's dragon.
* MommasBoy: Joffrey and Harry. Justified because Cersei takes far more interest in them than Robert does, so the children latch onto her.
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: A familial version. Cersei can't tell if she loves Harry for being her son, or hates him for being Robert's. It confuses Harry to no end why she treats him so differently from his siblings.
* MessianicArchetype: Cersei tries to invoke this by demanding the High Septon to anoint Harry in public. She wants his magical powers to be seen as a gift from the gods.

* PassedOverInheritance: Tywin makes Harry his heir so he can pass over Tyrion.
* ParentalNeglect: Robert leaves raising his children to other people.
* ParentalSubstitute: Since Robert ignores his children, Harry looks to Jon Arryn, his uncles, and later Tywin for guidance.
* PeopleOfHairColor: Harry is the only one of Cersei's children to have Robert's black hair, though his eyes are green like her's. Aeryn has the Valyrian look (MysticalWhiteHair, PurpleEyes) possibly from both her mother, a Lyseni[[note]]Valyrian features are common in Lys[[/note]] whore, and her father, a man from Driftmark[[note]]The seat of House Velaryon, the non-Targaryen descendants of people who survived the Doom[[/note]]. Most people in Lannisport have blond hair, which makes Harry stand out.
* RapeAsDrama: Aeryn.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Tyrion gave one to Harry. Though he was drunk and bitter at the time, his criticisms actually make sense.
* SceneryPorn: Some of the location descriptions veer in this directions, especially those of Lannisport and Casterly Rock.
* SecretKeeper: Invoked by Cersei, who tells Harry one of her secrets in exchange being told about his powers. Her secret is that [[spoiler: when she was pregnant with Harry, she hated the idea of a second child and drank abortifacients to get rid of him. After he was born, she grew to love him.]]
* SiblingRivalry: Harry and Joffrey.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: A lesson that just about all the adults in his life keep trying to teach Harry, and [[CrapsackWorld not without reason]].
* StreetUrchin: Aeryn and her friends. Thanks to Harry, Aeryn later gets bumped up to be Genna Lannister's maid.
* SternTeacher: Tywin to Harry
* ThisIsUnforgivable: [[spoiler: [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Elia Martell]]]] is offended that Harry thinks her death was merely "wrong."
--> Wrong, little lion, is being humiliated, or robbed, or cheated. What happened to me was far from ''wrong''.
* TimeSkip: The series begins shortly before Harry's ninth nameday but the eighth chapter skips to him around his fourteenth/fifteenth.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Pre-TimeSkip, Elaine was sweet and somewhat shy, but in Aeryn's POV, she's [[AlphaBitch extremely self-centered and condescending]].
* WellDoneSonGuy: Harry for Robert. [[BrokenPedestal At first.]]
* WhiteAndGreyMorality: Surprisingly, considering its [[CrapsackWorld Westeros]]. There are clashes between Harry's idealism and his family's ShootTheDog philosophy.
* WideEyedIdealist: Harry at first. His parents and uncles make sure to remind him that being a prince doesn't mean life will be a bed of roses. A few years with Tywin tones this down considerably, but he's still not as cynical as the rest of his family.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Harry at the beginning, thanks to his memories from his previous life. Lampshaded by Ser Barriston, who tells him he's too serious for a nine-year old.
* WouldHurtAChild: Robert and Tywin would. After seeing [[spoiler: Princess Rhaenys' ghost]], Harry starts to question everything he thought about his father and grandfather.
* {{Yandere}}: Aeryn seems to be turning into one of these for Harry.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Aeryn's mother.
