    Summary

    The thing is, nothing Father does is ever with the explicit intent to hurt Shouto. There are practical reasons for this, of course: Shouto is Father’s masterpiece, and it’s in his best interest to keep him safe and in one piece. Father has an image to maintain, as both a hero and a public figure, and mistreatment of his family would surely put him under fire, so to speak.

    But Enji Todoroki tends to act first and think later, and so it is never due to mere practicality that on mornings after the most horrible training sessions, he buys Shouto the best burn cream he can find that doesn’t require a prescription, and offers to let Shouto miss school just this once. He never verbalizes it, but Shouto can almost hear, when he gets like this: “I’m sorry. It won’t happen again.”

    It doesn’t make the next training session any less horrible. It doesn’t make the residual burns from the previous day any easier to deal with emotionally, if not physically. There are still burn marks on his chest and biceps, where no one will be able to see if they aren’t looking for it. There’s still pain, and soreness, and hurt.

    Summary

    Years later, Charles would remember that day. Sometimes he would wonder if he could have changed anything; other times he would despair over what he had since become. But he would always hold the image in his mind: Raven, laughing, and his thoughts flying alongside her on strong wings, silver-gold through the winter air. Once upon a time.

    More details, if desired, here. (Spoilers.)

    Summary

    ""Who are you?" She ground out, the icy words slicing through the air.

    That arrow could punch straight through my chest. And she knows it.

    As if reading his mind, the girl's mouth twisted into a smirk, "You really shouldn't test me. It'd be a shame to ruin such a fine body for such a simple question."

    Rhaegar hoped the shadows aided him in the lies he was about to tell.

    "We are landless knights from the South. We heard rumors of increased wildling attacks along the Wall and figured we'd take it upon ourselves to help protect the greatest part of the Seven Kingdoms. What knight doesn't wish for wild adventures in the snow?"

    The girl scoffed, but lowered her bow. "If you're landless knights, then I'm the Maiden herself. That flowery speech will get you nothing but trouble here.""

    **

    After avoiding an undesirable betrothal, the Crown Prince is sent to spy on the Starks for the King, who is convinced the Warden of the North plans treachery. Rhaegar finds there is more to the North than endless snow, Lyanna is exhausted by duty in a male-dominated world, while Ned struggles with a conflicted heart and Rickard looks to his legacy.
