    Summary

    She felt, for the briefest moment, a strong hand brush against hers. The fingers, once so familiar, were hesitant now. "It will all be alright." He whispered to her. But it was a lie.

    Nothing would ever be alright again.

    Sometimes, the smallest decisions we make can change everything in an instant. They can change the fate of not just the person responsible, but the entire world around them.

    And sometimes, they change nothing at all.

    Summary

    The Targaryens have been closer to gods than men, none would deny this. With the naming of a female heir, it appears as though the House of the Dragon is divided amongst itself.

    All that was required to thwart the Dance as we know it was a daughter born of Old Valyria, of salt and blood, fire and darkness.

    Laenor just wished the Targaryens weren't as dysfunctional as they were. The blood of the dragon runs thick, Daemon had told him once, apparently it makes them thick.

    In which the Gods of Valyria (and me) says no to the Dance and as a result we are served with Targaryen realness and dysfunction.

    Summary

    Viserys has found the best way to end the succession question, thanks to a not-so-open secret that Targaryens can manipulate their gender, just like their dragons.

    Mostly Aegon/Jacaerys. Eventually Aemond/Luke. Some background Helaena/Baela. Implied Laenor/Qarl and Rhaenyra/Harwin.

    Summary

    Aegon had loved the idea of having a soulmate, until reality came crashing down on his head. His sister wouldn't wait for her ascension to the throne to kill him, not once she knew, and Aegon wasn't so sure he wouldn't welcome the execution rather than deal with his own mother.

    Jacaerys. Of course it was Jacaerys. The gods must truly want him to suffer.

    Summary

    All Aegon has ever known is his mother's fear and rage, his father's cold indifference, and his grandfather's blind ambition. Unable to handle eternally falling short of their exceptions, or to face the threat of war on the horizon, he buries himself in his vices in order to cope, and waits for the world to be set aflame by the King's passing.

    Until Helaena gives him some advice that changes the course of his life, and the future: try and revive his old bond with his nephew, Jacaerys. If Aegon can convince him that he is no threat, then maybe Rhaenyra and the rest of the realm will believe it too.

    And if that means sneaking out to Dragonstone on Sunfyre? Learning more of his eldest sister and her family then he has ever before known? Realizing how kind and brave, smart and maybe even beautiful Jace is? And if those things together, shift the course of the Dance of Dragons, and House Targaryen forever?

    Well, who could have foreseen that?

    Or:

    Aegon accidentally joins the Blacks, falls in love, and fights a war, not necessarily in that order.
