GoT - Sansa - Queen

Two asoiaf recs

Two recs for the A Song of Ice and Fire challenge :)

Fandom Category: A Song of Ice and Fire
Pairing: Sansa Stark/Gendry Waters
Fic Title: Give Me Hope In The Darkness
Author: lit_chick08
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/381260
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance, post series
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's a lovely story for a rare pairing, built around this quote: "If the gods are good, she'll forget she was a Stark. She'll wed some burly blacksmith or fat-faced innkeep, fill his house with children, and never need to fear that some knight might come along to smash their heads against a wall."

She is Cat Rivers now, has been Cat Rivers from the moment she stumbled upon the Crossroads Inn and, by extension, Gendry.

Fandom Category: A Song of Ice and Fire
Pairing: Tyrion Lannister/Sansa Stark, Sansa Stark/Willas Tyrell
Fic Title: The Greatest of Fools
Author: SecondStarOnTheLeft
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/525665
Rating/Warning(s): teen, sibling love/incest on the same level as the books.
Genre: AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is a lovely and heartbreaking story with a twist on the asoiaf universe where Catelyn marries Tywin, not Ned. And Sansa is the younger sister of Jaime, Cersei and Tyrion. It's about growing up Lannister, it's about family and love and how that can ruin you in a million of ways. Includes the canon pairings and the story from the books in it's way.

Tyrion has Father's cunning and care, Sansa her mother's intelligence, and with that they manage not to ruin themselves as Cersei and Jaime have.

They ruin themselves in other ways, of course, but they are more private in their devastation than their golden fools of siblings.
