    Summary

    "Brienne rejected me, more than once."

    Lord Selwyn looks at the sun, high above Evenfall's keep, blinding in its midday glory. The sun Jaime thought he'd never live to see again.

    "Ask her again. Ask her here. You’ve all the daylight you need, especially on this day."

    Summary

    “Fine,” Jon agrees, “I’ll lend you my counsel, such that it is.”

    Jaime laughs again, and it echoes in the empty, broken hall. “Fucking perfect. We can hate this together.”

    Jaime and Jon team up to reluctantly rule Westeros. Brienne, back on Tarth, tries to rebuild her home. Jaime and Brienne pine for each other from afar. Meanwhile, Jon definitely, absolutely isn't feeling anything other than respect for his king.

    Summary

    "When Brienne sleeps with the book of folktales under her pillow, she dreams of swimming in the loch. The kelpie is there--golden mane glinting in the shafts of sunlight filtering through the water. It swims towards her as though bounding across a field, ethereal and otherworldly. I should be dead, her dream-self wants to say, only of course she can’t speak underwater. It’s incorrect enough that she can breath. 

     Galladon died, and I lived. But why?"

     Brienne dreams of a kelpie who saved her from drowning when she was a girl. What she doesn't expect is for a naked man to walk out of the same lake over a decade later.

    Summary

    It is a story from a song--a fair maid stolen in the dead of night, and her brothers and her betrothed riding to her rescue. They will tear a kingdom apart, pull a king from his throne, and crown another in his place, all in the name of the fair, stolen maid.

    It is a tale that comforts men and reassures them. Even though the knight is too late to save his lady, he gains a kingdom and a queen even fairer than the maid he lost. But the truth is not so simple. A war is not one story; it is thousands speaking at once. We do not know what the maid thought, or the prince’s wife, herself a princess by birth. And other ladies too, whose parts in this tale are further obscured, as often happens when histories are written by men.

    This is their story. This was their war.
