Title: The Golden Stag Author: Kerjack Rating: T Pairing: Appears to be Margaery/Damon Fandom: Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire Summary: His siblings looked nothing like his father, what with their golden hair and emerald eyes. Why, looking at Myrcella was like looking at a mirror of his mother. Not that Damon had any right to talk. When HE looked in a mirror, he saw his uncle Jaime. Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12481467/1/The-Golden-Stag The story focuses around an OC younger twin of Joffrey who looks up to and tries to emulate Robert. This story is actually crazy good. Despite being basically a canon rehash so far (with albeit few minor changes), the strength of this story as a character piece (of an OC, no less!) has made it a compelling read. Few stories are willing to not baby their characters and give them actual flaws (even more for OCs), and even fewer make those flaws glaring (in this case, whoring). As a result, Damon feels incredibly life like. He invokes sympathy, but isn't too perfect as to be inhuman. He's competent, as seen by his results on the field. And he has agency (to a limited degree), although hopefully this changes and he becomes more of an actor in his own right rather than a reactor. This may actually be the best Game of Thrones story I've read so far, and easily fits in the top 5 in the fandom at the very least. The only real downside so far has already been mentioned of course - it sticks to canon a bit too closely, although in fairness to you we are seeing some changes already. It's likely we'll see more now that he's king (and what a great character arc that would be for Damon, if it is the case).
