    Bookmarker's Notes

    However, and this is a key note, the man who lives in the apartment beside Lan Zhan’s is, in fact, the most beautiful man he’s ever seen. He is, perhaps, the most beautiful man in the world, bar none. He has beautiful hair and a beautiful smile and beautiful hands with beautiful fingers.

    Unfortunately, Lan Zhan hates him. It turns out that the most beautiful man in the entire world practices his flute very loudly at all hours, including this hour, which is three in the morning.

    Lan Zhan has discovered this tragedy because he’d gone to knock on the door of the apartment next to his, to tell the owner, as politely as possible, to please shut the fuck up, and it turns out the owner is the aforementioned beautiful man whom Lan Zhan hates. It’s three in the morning and Lan Zhan is having a crisis of conscience.

    Summary

    Maybe it would help him make sense of the mess in his head — it’s been days by now and beyond knowing in his heart, for sure, that the blonde, blue eyed ser lady with blue armor and ruby-hilted sword of his dreams can’t have been made up, he’s only ever had fleeting memories of that island, and every time he looks at his right wrist and the scars left by what feels like straps he feels something deeply wrong settle inside his gut, but he can’t say what. Otherwise he only dreams about that dragon fire or green fire, and a man laughing somewhere far away, and his head hurts whenever he tries to go any farther than that.

    He thinks that the ser lady of his dreams must be at least as honorable and brave as Ser Arthur Dayne from those songs. He’s sure that if she saw what he is seeing, she wouldn’t like it. After all, a knight’s duty is to protect the weak and innocent, right? He hasn’t seen much of that lately.

     

    Alternatively: in which Jaime Lannister dies in King's Landing.

    Or maybe not quite so much.
