For any of you lovelies who might be going through some challenging, if not outright difficult, moments, keep going. :)


"But what if we prevail?"

- Davos I, A Dance With Dragons

For context, this was supposed to have been said by the 19-year-old Eddard "Ned" Stark as he smuggled himself back to the North to call his banners 15 years before the canon era.

Why was this boy doing this?

His younger sister disappeared with the crown prince so Ned's older brother, in a fit of ill-advised hot-headedness, rode to the capital and demanded for the crown prince to come out and die for apparently kidnapping a betrothed highborn lady. (The crown prince was already married to a Dornish princess who deserved better.) The ruling king was beyond loopy, so he jailed Ned's older brother, summoned Ned's father, and killed father and son without proper trial. Then the king commanded the deaths of Ned and his friend, Robert Baratheon. Who was betrothed to Ned's younger sister. Their foster father was like, "No way. After decades of madness, this is the LAST STRAW. WE REBEL THE F OUT OF THIS MOFO."

Ned finds himself losing 3 family members in one swoop, and takes his older brother's place not only as the next Lord of Winterfell but also as the husband to Catelyn Tully. Ned's banners called, the rebellion was now in full swing. It seemed almost impossible, but eventually they toppled the 300 year old Targaryen dynasty.

Let me now go back to revising for my exam on Friday. Summer classes are hell. Daunting, taxing. But what if we prevail. :)

When will the universe give me a Eddard/Catelyn fic, modern AU or not, largely inspired by the lyrics and the wistful vibe of Zayn Malik’s Drunk? It's so perfeeect for their canon backstory. There's even mentions of ice and summer, and red eyes and late nights, and forgetting.

That song is not even the most superior of the album, but it's perfect when you feel like dipping into a huge cup and you hug the teabag like the sleepy Thumbelina you are and you feel the nice steeping of wistfulness and a tinge of hopefulness and you feel like it'd be really nice to have someone's arm around your shoulders right now.

(I'd...probably write it. Sometime. Let me go plop my shameless multi-shipping face on a pillow now.)

Anyway, do give Drunk a listen! It's so gentle and so lovely.

And am not saying no if you run away with my prompt and write that fic into existence. Just please tag me so I can properly fawn over it and shower you with kudoses.

*Something wonky happened to the original post so I reposted it, but set to the original date and time of posting.
