    Summary

    Rhaegar receives a warning about King Aerys' state of mind and, during Robert's Rebellion, gets his family out of King's Landing and to relative safety. Jon and Dany then grow up as close neighbours and best friends, only later suspecting that there's rather more going on than meets the eye.

    Act 1 is the story of their childhood, Act 2 picks back up at 7x01 with surprisingly few changes from canon before returning to AU for the rest of the fic. How will Jon and Dany deal with the inevitable adult challenges when they already have such a strong connection and shared past? And will their childhood secret be of any use in the fight against the Long Night?

    Summary

    The world is becoming out of joint. The cruel winds of winter are coming, but they come at a slow turn. It is the summer of plenty, of long laughs and even longer lives. But that summer is coming to a close.

    The Lord of Winterfell wants a better life for his bastard - a better life than even what his son would want. So Jon Snow travels across the Narrow Sea, where tales of an empire of horselords await him. A thousand roads he could travel, but he finds himself walking only the one, the one that brings him in conflict with a vicious dragon prince who will sell his sister for the Iron Throne.

    And so, begins a Song for Dragons.

    Summary

    After everything, Aziraphale and Crowley, by unspoken agreement, begin sharing their lives.
    ---
    Why? Aziraphale wanted to ask him, why millennia of the way things were, and now this?

    But while Crowley seemed to have little issue upending every unspoken rule they’d ever written for themselves, Aziraphale was not so flexible, and they had spent thousands of years never quite addressing whatever it was this had stemmed from. Words, Aziraphale had always felt, were for bickering about where to eat for lunch, or hashing out ontological debates, or other trivial nonsense; there was no need to trifle with the imprecision of language, with phrasing and the possibility of being misconstrued, when it came to important matters if the other person simply understood, without needing it said. Six thousand years ago, when Aziraphale had met Crowley on the wall of Eden, watching the first two humans set out to begin the rest of history, something deep within him, more central even than his Grace, had thought, oh, it’s you, and that had been enough for him--for both of them, he assumed--for three millennia.

    However much he wanted to ask, he didn’t know how. The words simply weren’t there.

    Summary

    “I couldn’t love him back. Not the way he wanted. Not the way I love you.”

    Her heart is as powerful and frantic as Drogon’s wings when he takes flight. She thinks the fear might consume her whole.

    “Is that all right?” she asks softly. She nearly trembles.

    And for a moment, the world is warm, small, safe. Jon has her in his arms, his body pouring into hers, his lips on her lips, his love a vast fire— and Dany, the Unburnt. She lets him burn her alive, delighting in the heat of his palms, the burn of his beard against her skin.

    When it stops— when he pulls back— it’s sharper than ice.
