Go To

Winter in the Winds is a Game of Thrones fanfic concerning events after Season 6.

Tropes that appear in this fanfic:

  • Adaptational Heroism: Instead of brushing off Tommen's suicide as she did in the show, Cersei is devastated by his death.
  • Age Lift: Willas Tyrell is now Mace Tyrell's second son instead of eldest son. Likewise, Harlan (changed from Garlan) is now Mace's youngest son.
  • Ascended Extra: Euron Greyjoy gets his own POV chapter when he cuts out Falia Flowers' tongue.
  • Advertisement:
  • Canon Foreigner: The Frey branch under Walder's second son Emmon makes an appearance, including his wife Genna Lannister.
  • Contrived Coincidence: In this fanfic, Sam winds up treating Jorah’s greyscale as a final test to become a maester.
  • Karma Houdini: Cersei sees Tyrion as one of these, being able to do as he wished without consequences while Cersei was subjected to Robert's whims.
  • Ms. Exposition: Genna tells Arya a lot of information about Cersei while in a cell at Riverrun.
  • Shaming the Mob: The Sand Snakes take Produce Pelting in stride. For example when Obara gets hit with a piece of bread, she eats it and laughs.
  • Spared by the Adaptation:
    • The Blackfish, instead of staying behind to die, hid under Brienne and Pod's boat and went to Stone Hedge. He took back Riverrun once, he can do it again.
    • Cleos Frey is alive and well instead of getting killed by brigands.
    • Advertisement:
    • A recursive example since the fanfic was written before Season 7. Instead of Obara and Nymeria getting killed by Euron, they get captured alongside Yara, Ellaria and Tyene and go on a round of Shaming the Mob while being paraded through the streets.
  • You Remind Me of X: Yara's Big Sister Instinct for Theon reminds Tyrion of Jaime.
