Title: Zero Requiem - Lelouch in ASOIAF Author: @Halt Rating: T Genre: Adventure Status: WIP Library Category: Other Fandoms Pairings: ? Summary: Lelouch dreamed about the past glories of his Valyrian family, when they'd held great keeps and their fleets ruled the Narrow Sea. But some nights, he dreamed of a life that wasn't his. He dreamed of an empire, war, and tyranny. Most of all, Lelouch Velaryon dreamed of revolution..

He has written almost 100k for a great story and has been ghosted harder than I was by my past three dates, so no wonder really. Summary Zero Requiem is a crossover between Code Geass and A Song of Ice and Fire. In it, previous protagonist Lelouch is reborn as the heir of House Velaryon, a minor house in the Crownlands. In the backdrop of the War of the Ninepenny kings, prior to Robert's Rebellion, we see him rise to prominence through a careful balance of intrigue, charisma and martial prowess. A fast moving fic, populated by a diverse characters of old and new, it is as gripping as it is well written. Why I recommend it: Ok that last bit quickly degenerated into a Barnes & Noble's 'our staff suggestions' reading card, but I'm running on fumes today, so I apologise. In all seriousness Zero Requiem is a fantastic fic, full of politics and intrigue and all that which made ASOIAF so good. Unlike ASOIAF, it also moves at a brisk pace, expanding on the Canon established by Martin, without requiring more than a basic knowledge of the fandom. Most important of all, its is written by someone who clearly knows his craft, both when it comes to knowing the setting, and storytelling in general. If you like the original ASOIAF you will like this fic. If you though Lelouch was the dog the Soviets sent to space circa the 1960's, you will also like this fic, given that no knowledge of Code Geass is necessary to enjoy it. I will edit this later to expand a little bit more on this fic's strengths and why you should read it, if you haven't, but for the moment know that I give it a- Rating: 4.5/5 - and only because I am such a pretentious fuck that it sometimes disgusts me.
