Winter’s End – 8 – Sunryder (Complete)

Joanna did not ask herself why the all the Seaworth boys had been shuffled off to another part of the house, or why Ser Davos was the only member of the family to make and appearance, and even he claimed he would be away in a minute to help with the children, and would Lady Shireen like to come with him when it was time? Lady Margery claimed she would so love to see the…

Winter’s End – 7 – Sunryder

Out having breakfast on one of the balconies. The storm clouds are hanging overhead but refusing to break and properly rain. It makes things hot and humid and will improve substantially after the rain breaks – it might be cold enough even for Joanna – but until such time they will spend as much time in the breeze as possible. So this morning they are eating a late breakfast on the balconies. (The first time…

Stepping back into his sitting room over an hour later, Renly bumped into Stannis. They’d seen all the guests off with polite smiles to shame them for their grumbles, and Renly had sent his brother away to check on Shireen before he could permanently damage relationships with Renly’s bannermen. (Which in a temper Stannis would’ve declared weren’t worth the effort, but he would regret later.) Renly had been expecting his brother and niece back long…

Winter’s End – 3 – Sunryder

The young ladies parted before they would have liked, but still soon enough that no one could claim Shireen was ignoring the other guests. It was not what they would have preferred, but any daughter of the noble houses knew that their preferences always had to be weighed against what had to be done. If they could claim Shireen ignored them now, then she would just have to let them stay longer or, Seven forbid,…
