A Song of Ice and Fire, 3 recs, multiple pairings

Fandom Category: A Song of Ice and Fire

Fic Title: The Lion Queen
Author: Laine
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/R | Semi-explicit sexual situations, references to incest (nothing explicit)
Genre: Alternate universe
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A fascinating AU of where Eddard Stark takes the Iron Throne after the rebellion that ousted the Targaryens from the Seven Kingdoms. Cersei is absolutely fascinating in this story, and you watch her have the chance to become something other than a madwoman. It's a short story, a snapshot in this 'verse, but you can just imagine how things might go beyond the confines of the fic.

Fandom Category: A Song of Ice and Fire
Pairing: Sansa Stark/Tyrion Lannister, Margaery Tyrell/Aegon Targaryen, Daenerys Targaryen/Jon Snow
Fic Title: Kindness, Not Fear
Author: SecondStarOnTheLeft
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 | Mentions of character deaths, sexual violence, and suicide
Genre: Alternate Universe, Angst, Romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: I just read this one fic recently, and I'm on pins and needles for it to be updated. Sansa and Tyrion are at the center of this story, which is set after the restoration of the Targaryens to the Iron Throne, though it is (so far) told from the perspective of other people. I love the characters of Sansa and Tyrion in this story. Sansa has grown up, become far more than the silly little girl she was, and Tyrion, while still as sardonic as ever, seems to have gained a bit of wisdom himself. The other characters, who tell the story, are just as interesting. Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and Margaery Tyrell all have their own distinctive perspectives and voices concerning the events unfolding, and it'll have you drinking this story in one big gulp.

Pairing: Myrcella Baratheon/Robb Stark, Arya Stark/Gendry, Jeyne Westerling/Robb Stark, Cersei Lannister/Jaime Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen/Jon Snow,
Fic Title: I Fear No Fate (For You Are My Fate, My Sweet)
Author: lit_chick08
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 | Sexual abuse, incest, violence
Genre: Alternate universe, angst, character deaths, epic, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It was this fic that made me fall in love with Myrcella/Robb as a pairing. Told from Myrcella's point of view, we get a slightly different take on the events of the series, where Myrcella is betrothed to Robb Stark and things go a bit differently. I can't say how much I adore this story. Myrcella grows from a child to an adult in this story, facing things that no one should have to face, and comes out all the stronger for it. Her relationship with Robb is the same way, and it's wonderful, watching them fall in love. Bring yourself a snack for this, because it's a long one, and you won't want to leave it.
