Okay, so I was in the process of responding to an ask, but I instead must take a moment to laugh first because someone reblogged a post and called Doran a thotty king in the tags, and I don鈥檛 know why I find that funny, I just know it鈥檚 hysterical. Thank you for this gift.

Who would you like to see Arianna marry, and how would you like her story in the books to end?

My ideal ending for Arianne is her as the ruling princess of an independent Dorne. For marriage…I don鈥檛 especially want her to marry Aegon, but I鈥檓 in favour for plot reasons, and I like the idea of them as a team getting stuff done, so I鈥檓 into that until Aegon鈥檚 inevitable death and Arianne鈥檚 return home for my previously mentioned ideal ending. After that, since I love her dynamic with Daemon, I鈥檇 like to see the two of them get back together, so I guess for marriage, I鈥檇 like whatever best enables that. Legitimization? Her marrying some other guy and keeping Daemon as her paramour? I haven鈥檛 exactly thought through the logistics of any of this, but I think you get where I鈥檓 at.

Saw someone on Twitter talking about the Sand Snakes usurping Dorne because Doran鈥檚 bodyguard isn鈥檛 around and I鈥檓 just鈥eriously? Seriously?! As if they鈥檝e ever expressed an interest in doing such a thing. But hey, how dare they criticize?

The fandom exhausts me.

The Sand Snakes (by the way, I think only like Obella and maybe Dorea is in Sunspear, who at oldest is like 10, so doubly implausible) wouldn鈥檛 usurp Doran at any point. They鈥檝e never shown any kind of interest in ruling Dorne, and Arianne isn鈥檛 there and has a much better relationship with her dad now. She wouldn鈥檛 be happy with a coup happening, and it鈥檚 made clear that Arianne is close to her cousins.

There鈥檚 a reason why I鈥檓 not touching the fandom on twitter with a fifty foot pole.

Yup. It makes zero sense, but I guess these people don鈥檛 care??? I don鈥檛 even understand their logic. It鈥檚 like taking something and calling it evidence for the literal opposite happening? I don鈥檛 get it.

That鈥檚 the worst part - I鈥檓 not even on fandom Twitter. My Twitter account consists of news items, personal stuff, and such. I follow one account that has anything to do with this fandom, and it鈥檚 an Arianne account. Said account reblogged this stupid idea. I feel betrayed.

What do you think would happen if Rhaegar forced Rhaenys and Aegon to marry each other, but they made it clear that they don't consent to this and flat out refused to consummate the marriage? Baelor got a annulment based on that after all. I mean, it might hurt Rhaenys' prospects a bit, but Aegon will be the next king. Someone is going to be willing to marry him.

Hmm. I honestly have no idea?聽 Rhaegar living would make this quite a different situation from the Baelor Daena situation. There, there really鈥asn鈥檛 anyone that could in any way pressure Baelor to do something he didn鈥檛 want to do? Like, he and Daena can鈥檛 have been married for all that long, because they were younger than Daeron, who became king at fourteen and died at eighteen, a lot of which was spent at war in Dorne. So that鈥檚 different from Rhaenys and Aegon, who would be actively challenging their father. In a lot of other ways of challenging him, that would go poorly. Rhaegar is the king. He could potentially make things very difficult for them in this situation, too, but it鈥檚 not immediately clear how.聽

When Rhaenyra protested the match between herself and Laenor Velaryon, Viserys basically was all,聽鈥渄o it or I鈥檓 disinheriting you.鈥 He could do that because he had more children by his second wife with which he could supplant his heiress. Rhaegar does not have that option.聽While he technically does have a spare in Viserys, there鈥檚 a big difference between setting your son aside for a younger son and doing it for your brother - passing down your name, title, lands to your children is incredibly important. Having your line die out is considered an enormous tragedy. So Rhaegar intentionally opting聽for Viserys over his living son would be a nuclear option of a sort we鈥檝e never seen executed, would almost certainly lead to war, and isn鈥檛 something he or anyone would do.

If this scheme worked and Rhaegar had no way of retaliating, yeah, Aegon and Rhaenys would probably both be fine. Aegon, of course, but Rhaenys, too - maybe a couple extremely proud families would not want her after that, but I imagine most would. Even if they didn鈥檛, I imagine Aegon would have no problem with her remaining unmarried and hanging out in the Red Keep or Dragonstone.聽 But I find it hard to believe that Rhaegar would have no way of retaliating? But I don鈥檛 know what that would be?

Anyone have any ideas? I really don鈥檛 know.

I used to hate the ‘Rhaenys lives AU’ fanfics cuz they were all just her being the only survivor from her family who ends up as Jon Snow’s concubine wife but then you made that tag on AO3 bearable<3

I鈥檓 not sure I can actually take credit for that, as much as I wish I could, but thank you. 馃槀 I feel you - if something is tagged with聽鈥淩haenys lives鈥 and it鈥檚 not treating her as an actual person with wants and needs of her own, I don鈥檛 want it!

No question from me. I just want to tell you that you are awesome and I love the metas and all that stuff you write up. Elia Martell and House Martell deserves justice.

mai is great. speaking of atla, I have such a soft spot for the non benders in the universe (sokka, suki, hakoda, mai, piando, kya) when sokka said he felt like he was just the "regular guy" and therefore nothing special I felt so bad because I doubt those feelings would be uncommon

Saaaame.

My favorite Elia ship is Elia x Malora Hightower because I like witch lesbians. My au is where they fall in love during Elia’s Oldtown visit and Malora goes with Elia as one of her ladies when she marries Rhaegar. Then, Malora does magic and helps Elia, Rhaenys, and Aegon escape. So when they return to make Aegon king, he’s grown up with 2 moms: Malora who teaches him magic, and Elia who teaches good governance. Rhaenys becomes well known for her magic skills and helps heal and protect those she loves.

馃ズ馃ズ馃ズ馃ズ馃ズ I love that for all of them.

When you鈥檙e trying to figure out details of a fic, but you realize you have to completely rephrase something in a way that sounds decidedly less good in order to make it make sense. Dammit, Robert, couldn鈥檛 you have done us all a favour and put some other symbol on the gold coins so the name could just be a holdover? This is yet another reason why the next ruler ought to abolish the gold standard. Consistency!

I can see Robb and Rhaenys living in the same AU in a situation where Brandon is killed in an accident that has nothing to do with the Targs and Cat then marrying Ned. I'm just trying to figure out the driving factors behind Robb marrying Rhaenys. If Rhaenys & Aegon are Rhaegar's only children, then Rhaenys is not only the only princess but second in line behind Aegon. They shouldn't be giving her hand to just anybody.

Regarding my other question about Rhaenys and marriage, if Rhaegar had pushed for her to marry Aegon like tradition, how do you think Elia would have responded? I just have this feeling that being so close with her own brother Elia would feel uncomfortable with it. Like I could see her trying to be understanding but I see her being into history and knowing how unhealthy those marriages were. (Rhaegar’s own parents)

They should definitely not be giving her hand to just anybody, and the Starks kind of would be the embodiment of just anybody - they鈥檙e way off in the North, not particularly involved in realm-wide politics, and so on. I honestly kind of think Robb/Rhaenys in this situation might be most likely to occur as a matter of parental indulgence than a real strategic choice - maybe they meet at some point, get along well, and so their parents shrug and go with it. While marrying for love among the nobility is rare, especially when it comes to a first marriage, it鈥檚 not unheard of, and the combination of Rhaegar鈥檚 personality and Robb鈥檚 position as heir to the North makes it seem possible. Robb would be an out of left field choice because the Starks don鈥檛 have much to do with the rest of Westeros, and kings don鈥檛 marry their only daughters to completely random people from families with which they don鈥檛 have close ties or need an alliance (unless you鈥檙e a dick like Jaehaerys, but I digress), but he might work anyway, especially if Rhaenys expressed interest.

The Starks may be a random family whom there would be no real reason to wed a princess so high up in the line of succession, because contrary to what fandom would have us believe,聽whether or not someone is from a great house is not the most important criteria in choosing who to marry your child to, but Robb being both highborn and from an influential house means that Rhaegar, with his not very strong political instincts, might just go with it in the event that Rhaenys wanted it.聽It鈥檚 not something that could really have major consequences if a princess married a lord鈥檚 heir when neither of them were otherwise attached. If we think about all the people women in Westeros wanted to marry, but couldn鈥檛, or people who had pushback against their marriages - Lysa wanting to marry Littlefinger, Duncan and Jenny, Robb and Jeyne - we can see that Robb/Rhaenys would be a safer bet. Neither of them are nobodies, the circumstances being what they would be, it would be very unlikely that either of them were betrothed. So it could be fine. Robb would probably not be the best choice, but as a Lord Paramount鈥檚 son, he鈥檚 still an appropriate choice.

Also, there are political benefits, even if they鈥檙e not immediately obvious - Robb would be a safe choice to get away from incest without shifting the balance of power too much. I鈥檝e argued before that the reason the Targaryens have traditionally wed their children to each other, non-great houses, or the Martells with whom they have a special relationship, rather than frequent great house matches, is about the balance of power, not just their sense of Valyrian supremacy. Aegon V tried to change that when he needed support, but for him, it would have been easier than it would be for Rhaegar because he had so many children. His intended betrothals - Baratheon, Tully, Redwyne, Tyrell - would have tied his family to the Stormlands, Riverlands, and Reach. He may have intended to marry Rhaelle to someone from one of the other regions. There was no shift in the balance of power. Rhaegar, though, only has two kids, and so whoever he married Rhaenys to would be something of a statement of favour. So he might be able to avoid making it being a big statement by having it be Robb, and not, say, Edmure. I actually wrote a whole post about the Targaryen kids and marriage a while ago (you can find it here). One of the conclusions I came to is that you could make a valid case for Rhaenys marrying pretty much anyone in the realm, from Beric Dondarrion to Edmure Tully. If Robb exists due to an accident, he might actually be a pretty good choice.

In regard to incest, I don鈥檛 know! We really don鈥檛 know enough about Elia to say. I can definitely see her being uncomfortable with the idea, but we also have the examples of a fair few non-Targaryens that just went with it upon marrying into the family - most notably, Alicent Hightower, who first wanted her son as king through marriage to Rhaenyra, then married him to his younger sister. So it鈥檚 possible Elia would have accepted it as a Targaryen thing. I can imagine her maybe making the case that it would be a better option to have Aegon marry outwards and have Rhaenys marry Viserys to reconcile the branches of the family - not vocally opposing the incest, but maybe being unhappy with the idea enough to push for something a bit different.

ASOIAF jokes that I find hilarious and will never stop making:

  1. Good guy Lancel
  2. Ryon and Allyria Allyrion
  3. Annoying little sister Elia Sand with everyone that鈥檚 older than fourteen being all,聽鈥渇or fuck鈥檚 sake, Elia鈥 and everyone younger than her being all,聽鈥渟eems legit, she looks like she knows what she鈥檚 doing鈥.
  4. Arianne that pretends she鈥檚 constantly ready to fight, but really just wants people to pet her hair and tell her they love her.
  5. Rhaenys and her brother Rhaenephew
