Title: you shine in love you are born annointed
Author: loneraven
Fandom: A Game of Thrones/ASoIaF (no spoilers)
Characters: The Stark family, Robert; Gen.
Word count: 4000
Summary: "Your net contribution to the world, Eddard Stark, is sitting out there in lawn chairs playing Clue and drinking bad Riesling."

This is a wonderful, wonderful AU retelling of the beginning of A Game of Thrones, and beautifully written. I want Raven to rewrite the whole canon, honestly. (Also, I dare anyone not to love her Arya.)

loneraven's description: "My fannish engagement with [Game of Thrones] probably goes like this AU where Ned Stark is married to his gorgeous South Asian wife Catelyn, who worships different gods to him, and they've got one kid who's a fashion designer and another who's a disability activist who yells at the TSA a lot, and Ned is an unwilling transplant into politics from the simple academic life even if it is really fucking cold up north."

(they don't go in much for security theatre up here)
