    Title: Harry Flashman and the Throne of Swords
    Author: Technomad
    Rating: Officially T, but I think it should be M
    Genre: Adventure/Fantasy
    Status: WIP
    Fandom: Harry Flashman/ASoIaF
    Pairings: As per canon, Flashman successfully hits on everything.
    Summary: When it becomes possible to travel between nineteenth-century Earth and Westeros, Britain needs its finest to represent it at King Robert's court. Who better to call than Sir Harry Flashman? (Actually, almost anybody else would do, but he's burdened with his reputation.)

    Link: Here

    I generally avoid ASoIaF stories as I haven't read the books or seen A Game of Thrones, but I have Technomad on my followed authors list so when this came up and it was (at the moment) short I decided it wouldn't hurt to read it. I haven't read Flashman so I can't tell how accurately this was written or in the characters are in character but I greatly enjoyed it despite having only a rudimentary understanding of ASoIaF.

    4/5 from me.

    Yeah, it's in character, and I dare say have quite good character interactions... BUT

    is more IC, AND have devious colonising prestige-chasing British Empire we all know and love from the late 19th century.

    Also, cannons vs dragons

    (and having noted savage medieval petty lord saying savage-charmer is just precious~ :eek:)
