    Summary

    “I was afraid.” Her ribs expand in his palm as she takes a breath. “But I am not afraid now, Jon.” Tilt of her head as he sinks his mouth to chase away the heat of his fingers from her neck. “I am here with you.”

    Lips resting on her skin as he breathes the scent of her. “You are here with me.” Low and soft, voice curling from his throat like a fire burned down to embers. “Wherever we may go, you are always here with me.”


    A wildling scout finds a fire-haired stranger in the snow — but within each other they find something else entirely.

    There’s nobody named Lyarra in Winterfell, according to her father; the last person who bore that name was his mother, and she was buried decades ago.

    Sansa speaks to her the next week.

    [Sansa can speak to ghosts, and this changes everything.]

    Summary

    Zuko had never excelled at anything. Azula was a prodigy. Uncle always knew what to say. And Father... Father was strong, iron-like. But Zuko had only ever been good at surviving. Putting one foot in front of the other in a grim show of stubborn determination, gritting his teeth and bearing it. Survival was all he had ever been taught. He knew how to do it. So when he was kidnapped by the Southern Water Tribe, he expected to fight as he always had. He didn’t expect to be taught instead how to live.

    In a warring land, the Water Tribe forgave the enemy in an act of defiance, an act of kindness in a world so accustomed to blood. For this, he was torn from them, and this time, his wounds won't heal so easily.

    Forced back into nothing but survival, the last person Zuko expected to see was Hakoda's son. Hakoda was a promise of safety. The relentless blue of Sokka’s eyes was a promise of happiness. Zuko could have both if he just reached out his hands, but he found them clutching into fists. After all, he’d been burned one too many times.

    But hey, at least between Hakoda and Sokka, Zuko could appreciate the family resemblance of pure, asinine stubbornness.
