Why This Must Be Read: I'll admit it: I'm new to reading fic in Game of Thrones. But while watching the show, I really liked Brienne and Jamie traveling together in Westeros, and I fell hard for this pairing.

This fic, set after "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" (the season three episode), features Brienne and Jamie confronting their feelings as they travel south from Harrenhal to King's Landing. The fic is tagged as a "travelogue," and I really like the mix of the sights Brienne and Jamie encounter along with the scenes of pining and shippiness.
