modern au - baratheons
“the only thing them kids had in common was blood. all but stannis’ kid shireen had the same daddy. that robert baratheon that got himself killed when they were younger. hell, he had kids all over the damn country. not like he could be bothered to take care of them though. they were alright. the oldest one, mya, she got a job working with the arryns out in denver; went from copy girl to vp in five years. that boy gendy is a damn-near genius. knows more about computers and all that technology crap than you and i could ever dream. edric, he was raised in london, only one robert ever acknowledged. shireen? oh she’s stannis’ daughter for sure. balls of steel, knows both sides of the game. unofficially, they have nothing to do with each other. it would seem smart if they worked together; gendry’s got the brain, mya knows the business, edric’s got the money, and shireen as sweet a face as she’s got now after the plastic surgery, she’s the wildcard. but they don’t know each other.. officially.”

Visiting hours start at 8 AM, and, like clockwork, Jon is there. The guards recognize his half-brother as easily as Robb does; never once has Jon missed a weekend, not even when half the state was blanketed in several feet of snow. Allenwood is nearly a three-hour drive from Jon’s place outside Philly, but he’s never late; it’s something he got from their father. They can’t hug; there’s no physical contact allowed, but Jon still smiles as if they’re meeting at Fairmount Park to play football instead of at the Allenwood Federal Correctional Complex. In two years, Jon hasn’t missed a visit; he’s the only one.
modern au starks
“you remember what happened to the starks, don’t you? that crime family in boston? i remember when they ran everything. if ned’s brother brandon hadn’t gotten killed back in ‘82, who knows how shit would’ve gone down. ned tried, but he ain’t got a head for the game. the lannisters really did a number on that whole family didn’t they. started working with the feds to take robb down when he started rebuilding the business after his daddy died. they called it the ‘red wedding’. it was his uncle’s wedding i think, where him and his crew got arrested. his ma, catelyn, she got away. the girl sansa disappeared out west somewhere when that baratheon boy, joffrey died. word is she’s trying to finish what her brother started. the other one, arya i think, heard she’s in queens somewhere, heard she’s just as dangerous, but no one has seen her. that bastard of ned’s, jon, yeah he’s up in canada doing border patrol. them other two, the boys rickon and bran, i hear bran’s up in maine keeping out of trouble. better watch out for rickon though. that boy’s got a vengeance.”
The Great Houses - House Targaryen
The Targaryens are the blood of the dragon, descended from the high lords of the ancient Freehold of Valyria, their heritage proclaimed in a striking (some say inhuman) beauty, with lilac or indigo or violet eyes and hair of silver-gold or platinum white. Aegon the Dragon’s ancestors escaped the Doom of Valyria and the chaos and slaughter that followed to settle on Dragonstone, a rocky island in the narrow sea. It was from there that Aegon and his sisters Visenya and Rhaenys sailed to conquer the Seven Kingdoms. To preserve the blood royal and keep it pure, House Targaryen has often followed the Valyrian custom of wedding brother to sister. Aegon himself took both his sisters to wife, and fathered sons on each. The Targaryen banner is a three-headed dragon, red on black, the three heads representing Aegon and his sisters. The Targaryen words are “Fire and Blood”.

It’s the Iron Grill.
You helped me win the Iron Grill, now help me keep the damn thing.
Robert; you’re too fat for your apron.
When you play the Game of Grills, your win or you dine.
