    Not marry, but Jon Arryn would probably at least try to betroth him with Arianne Martell as a way to make peace with them. Robert didn't care for marriage and could wait even a decade, spending it with other women.

    Doran may even agree under condition she doesn't go to King's Landing before she's of age and ready to carry their vengeance.

    Other changes, if Jaime declined to leave the Kingsguard, which could change with his sister not present, I suspect Tywin himself would consider marrying again. With no ties to the Iron Throne, he needs allies and a heir that's not Tyrion.

    Even with these changes the war would happen, if only because there were too many people who wanted it to happen for their own gain.

    Delena Florent perhaps. Not a woman of a great house, but with a claim to the Reach, which could serve doubly as a warning to the Tyrells and of ways for Robert to get a bigger pull in said region too. Hightower, as Kravot suggested, is also an acceptable choice, but I think Robert would be wroth with house Hightower, what with one of theirs keeping Lyanna in the Tower of Joy, and that would eliminate them as a choice for a bride.

    We can say with some certainty that Cersei's replacement (whoever she may end up being) would not commit adultery/incest and give birth to bastards instead of Robert's trueborn children, so there's that bit at least. A different wife would quite likely also mean a different Robert as well. Not too different from his canon character, but not as bloated or as prone to whoring as he was during his marriage to Cersei. Having trueborn children he could also see himself in, perhaps partake in some of his past-times (hunting and such), would also help Robert be kept more within the norms.

    As for the wider range of consequences? No idea. I wanted to suggest Jaime Lannister could be released from the Kingsguard, as a way of repaying Tywin, but let's face it: he joined in the fray near the end of things, when Rhaegar was dead and Robert's victory was all but assured and that wouldn't really garner him any favors.

    Littlefinger would still be Littlefinger, Varys would be Varys, and so there'd be always some sort of shit going on in the background.

    If Robert marries into the Reach it would probably be to the Hightowers who are far stronger than the Florents. Granted, Mace's wife is a Hightower, but the Florents only bring 2k men so they're not really worth it. And they're all ugly.

    If Cersei died before Robert's Rebellion (or during), would Tywin end up supporting Robert? After all, if he has no daughter to marry the next King, would he be as likely to join? Especially if she died before Rhaegar got married, and therefore didn't have a falling out with Aerys'.

    He would join in, if only for the slight chance that Jaime gets released from his KG vows. Because that's what really soured relations between them, Aerys taking Tywin's son and heir for himself, leaving him with nothing but a twisted dwarf for a potential heir.

    If she died before Rhaegar even married, who knows what would have happened? Too many butterflies.

    ASoIaF/Gurren Lagann fusion. Sort of.

    Basically, the Great Other is the Anti-Spiral that uses the White Walkers to keep the humanity from advancing. Something changes and from that point the Planetos experiences drastic social and technological changes.

    Like in the anime, they would basically get from medieval level to s-f within few years and people's abilities would drastically evolve along the way. From a master swordsman to an excellent pilot of big robots.

    Yet one of the points of this fic would be that while everything around them changes, the humans are still only humans and the Game of Thrones continues. Only now with actually nukes instead of dragons.

    Sort of a gamer fic, but not exactly. More of a parody/satire? Thought about rwby since there's a glut of fics that are power wanks (even though I do love TGWP). It also is one of the few settings with an easy in universe explanation and sufficient enemies to make this work.


    The basic premise of the gamer crossovers is that it provides an awesome way for a character to increase in power rapidly. Generally it does this based on RPG mechanics being ported to the story (usually a Korean mmo). However, there's quite a few RPGs with mechanics that are more... Infuriating.

    The SaGa series came to mind immediately. (Some people consider ff2, the NES one, the first of these, and it might be the most played)Basically if there's anything you hated in an RPG it is definitely in one of those games. Their designer has been called the honey badger of rpg design. Weapons break easily with low durability, information is extremely limited in ways that can hurt you, and minor mistakes early on snowball to make the games literally impossible at times regardless of grinding. There are no levels, stats instead only have a chance of increasing at random if you use them when defeating an enemy. Same with skill at weapons. The weaker the enemy, the lower the chance of an increase. In some games enemies got stronger with every battle as well. Techniques are learned at random when attacking or dodging. HP can only increase when you take damage in a battle with an enemy, though in some of the earlier games it was possible to have your party beat the shit out of each other to gain HP in random battles.

    An example of limited information was that in some of the earlier games monsters would drop meat randomly after battle, and if you ate it... That character would become a copy of a random enemy monster with no possibility for stat increase. It was possible by eating more monsters to go back to human, but highly random and unlikely. Easy to work in with RWBY and different classes of Grimm (you can't become something stronger than what was eaten), though admittedly would be an accident at first.

    Give it to someone as a semblance (Jaune is the easiest target, seeing as he doesn't have one yet), then just sort of torture them. Would make it impossible for him to improve via training outside of combat. He obviously wouldn't want to give his semblance effects to his team, not sure if it should happen anyways outside of his control.

    Only real plot idea I had was Nora eating one of the Beowulf's or Ursa and becoming one, mostly to see Ren freak out about it, especially when he learns she can't be easily changed back.

    Basically, combine all the worst elements to ensure that it is really and truly is a curse to have it as a semblance. Not really sure what to do with a plot though as that's kind of a ridiculous setup.

    Cthulhu Mythos / Lovecraft story idea:

    A Lovecraftian take on anime waifus. People with anime anatomy would look creepy in real life, so imagine if they actually existed?

    Perhaps they would be the result of normal humans having children with some strange creatures. Basically, a much different type of the "Innsmouth look".

    I would fully expect Robert to fuck off to Essos and leave Stannis holding the bag, to be honest.

    I'd read a story about Robert fucking off to Essos only to return at the head of a company he had founded to fight against the Greyjoy Rebellion, father a few noble babies, and then fuck off again. Depending on how shit went down in this AU, he could be for Jon Snow what the Golden Company was for Aegon.
