Brienne is a volunteer librarian at the University of Lannisport. She spends most of her time on the quiet third-floor shelving books and shooing fellow students who like to use the stacks to have sex; as if they didn’t have dorm rooms for such a thing. One of the worst culprits is Jaime Lannister, a star athlete whose father is a major donor to the university. It was made clear to Brienne that Jaime could set a whole shelf of books on fire and the library would apologise for getting ash on his clothes.
But one afternoon, Brienne has had enough.
She rushes over to break up the tête-à-tête between Lannister and whatever blonde he’d winked at down on one of the lower floors, only to find Jaime by himself, reading a novel. Turns out, the Lannister heir enjoys alternate historical fiction, especially romantic alternate historical fiction, and has to sneak away on the pretence of sex so he can read in quiet. Jaime swears Brienne to secrecy, he continues to read his favourite genre, and she recommends him some of her favourites.
Until one day, it’s Brienne having sex in the stacks.
