    Here's you go: It was that one.

    I kinda liked it and I kinda don't. Concept is interesting and it's well written, but the last chapter I was not a fan of.

    Main complaint is them railroading Robb into King of the North for no apparent reason other than "that's what happened last time".

    I mean, I wouldn't put money on it, but I'd say...

    ...it's probably a completely different fic.

    Why do you need to clarify what's already clear? You're the only who's confused.

    You're absolutely right. I don't know what I was thinking, asking a question and expecting an answer. Next time I want to know something I'll just shut up.

    Yeah fuck me right? Too stupid to know this fic, the one with a different name than mentioned, is the one meant.

    You're not stupid! You just don't seem to know what sarcasm is or how to detect it. Tip a friend gave me once was to start by assuming that people aren't morons, and to apply occam's razor! For more detailed help, here's a handy link to get you started!

    Could you all just shut the fuck up about that?

    Anyway, that CBaBT fic seems quite shit just from the first three chapters. Why is Jon calling Robert "the Usurper"?

    Edit:

    I decided to read further on and oh God it's so fucking shit.

    So not only is Elia Martell a Greenseer, but she also totally fell in love with Lyanna before even meeting her and was absolutely fine with Rhaegar having two wives. She says: "I didn't know our actions would start a war." What the fuck were they expecting when they just eloped with a Baratheon's betrothed? There's a history lesson showing them what happens when you do shit like breaking a betrothal with a Baratheon.

    And oh dear Lord, Jon's eyes just suddenly turn violet?

    How the hell does anyone think this shitpile is decent reading?

    Seriously, everyone just shits all over Robert. Catelyn Tully speaks of him as the "whoring Lord" from when he was younger.

    Also, a Tyrell shitting over Stannis Baratheon is one thing. But saying that stormlander lords would not follow him because people died while they were under siege by the Tyrells? That's fucking retarded.

    It is the TV show fan wank.
    They don't even try to save their own father, writing him off as doomed.

    Yeah, Sansa going off to KL, to sort of change things didn't actually change all that much, other than the different perspective on things.

    Things went more or less the same way, if couched differently.

    So any other Stark fix it?
    Or more cunning Eddard? or more Strategically/politically aware Robb?

    Or Bran becoming a true King of Winter (after his father and brother demise) and bring winter down on all Westeros ?

    Or just proper written revenge fic ?

    There's the Lion of the North by our very own Atri.

    I think you can also find that fic in WbA on the forum.

    There is also that one Skagossi fic that had Richard Stark as deligthfully ruthless politician.

    IT is semi-SI but interesting read. It is in the AH.

    "It's written with all the characters speaking in the same paragraph." I picked up the pencil. "You don't say." "I do say." "Who is saying what?" "I don't know. This one is obviously me." "And I'm obviously a different character... perhaps." "This crap is unreadable." "Deal with it." Oh, this man is so head strong. "Don't you mean headstrong, one word?" "That's what I said." "No, you said Head Strong... like your head is really strong, not like you're outgoing in a douche bag kind of way." "Don't you mean douchebag, one word?"

    Wow.

    I didn't say it was good. I said I liked it. Tbh, I forgot about Elia the greenseer shortly after I read it.

    Also, about the whole, "We didn't know we would start a war," thing...you're being your usual aggressively douchey self. Yeah, it was fucking stupid, and stealing Lyanna was the initial spark, but that's all it would've been - a spark - if not for Brandon, Rickard, and the rapey fire guy.
