Title: A Fish Out of Water Author: soczab Rating: T Genre: Fantasy Status: WIP Pairings: N/A Summary: An Edmure Tully SI that attempts to be truly realistic. Link: Spacebattles | Fanfiction.net So despite that rather poor summary, this is genuinely one of the few readable self-insert fics in ASOIAF at the moment. SIs don't get a good rep around these parts, so let me try to sell this a bit better. Ahem. If you hate canon rehashes, and feel bad for the riverlands, watch what an actually reasonable competent Edmure Tully-OC who has future knowledge can do to save the collective bacon of his people. He balances military strategy and political intrigue in a tightly paced story that has you wondering what will happen next. The author is not afraid to deviate from canon, but always does so in ways that make sense. Further, it's not a fix it fic. Challenges do come up and have to be overcome in believable ways. Even with all his victories, the SI faces challengers from the north and sometimes from his own lords. The politics is pretty good, if I do say so myself, and there's some occasionally clever worldplay that's a joy to read. It's also quite decently written from a technical standpoint. Also, no tech uplifts. Solid 4/5 for me.
