  • Complete Monster: Melisandre of Asshai lacks the good intentions of her book and TV series counterparts, masterminding a wildfire attack in the prologue that destroys most of Harrenhal. On Dragonstone, Melisandre continues with her Burn the Witch! rituals. Her eventual plan is to sacrifice Shireen to the Lord of Light; she has been slipping sedatives into Shireen's food so she won't resist, biding her time until Stannis, who is on his deathbed due to more shadow creations, dies. When Stannis dies, Melisandre attempts to collect Shireen, but her plans are foiled by Davos, who escapes to the North with Shireen. Melisandre leaves Dragonstone, leaving her loyalists to die at the hands of Lannister forces. She journeys to Slavers' Bay, where she masterminds the downfall of the Slaver Cities and the imprisonment of Daenerys Targaryen. Melisandre manages to take control of the dragons without Daenerys's knowledge and uses Drogon to rescue Daenerys, while Rhaegal and Viserion destroy the Slaver Cities. With nowhere to turn, Daenerys goes to Asshai with her remaining supporters and Melisandre. Three days after their arrival, Melisandre orchestrates the murders of all of Daenerys's supporters apart from Barristan Selmy and reveals her role in the downfall of the Slaver Cities and her plot to put Daenerys and her dragons in her power and sacrifice them to awaken the Lord of Light.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • In this fanfic, Stannis refuses to have Melisandre burn Shireen alive in Volume 2, which was finished in late 2014. Guess what happens in Season 5 of Game of Thrones.
    • Sansa’s torture at Ramsay’s hands, considering what Ramsay did to her in the show.
    • Bran and Meera being Happily Married, considering their last meeting in the show.
    • Arya and Gendry being Happily Married, particularly since Arya turned down Gendry's marriage proposal.
  • Heartwarming Moments: The Starks reuniting in ‘’Tragedy and Reunions’’.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Arya’s final meeting with Nymeria goes almost exactly as it did on Season 7 of Game of Thrones.
    • The White Walkers turning out to be a Keystone Army, as shown when Jon kills the Night King.
    • In Deadly Alliances, Asha takes the Iron Islands while Euron is away. In Season 8, she intends to do the same.
    • Advertisement:
    • The Hound and The Mountain accomplishing a Mutual Kill, as what happened in "The Bells".
    • Jon's still the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch; unlike Game of Thrones, he never left.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Ramsay crosses it when he and his men gang-rape Meera Reed and force Bran to hear them, utterly unable to do anything.
    • Cersei crosses it when she has Margaery kidnapped, stripped naked(while unconscious), subjected to several doses of Mind Rape, which culminates in an Attempted Rape.
    • The men that Euron leaves defending the Iron Islands cross it when they try to murder the civilians when Asha returns home.
    • Melisandre crosses it in her destruction of Slaver’s Bay.
  • Tear Jerker:

How well does it match the trope?
