I absolutely love this and I can't believe it took me this long to find it. I can already see the amazing relationship development with Rhaegar and Elise. I adore Rhaegar sfm but it's soooo hard to find fics that portray him like I imagine him. Either he's a total shithead who kidnapped Lyanna or he's a crazy maniac who believed in a prophecy and barely lived his life and was constantly sad. Or he's an arsehole who abandoned his wife and kids just bc of either a pretty face or a prophecy. Or worst of all he's a blinded lovestruck fool who couldn't give a damn about the kingdom or his responsibilities. There's a few fics that come close to my interpretation though thankfully otherwise I'd be forced to write a Rhaegar fic myself and lord knows nobody would want to read my shitty writing
I've always imagined Rhaegar to be more complex than any other character in the ASOIAF universe and since even the least complex characters in ASOIAF tend to have multiple sides to them... anyways I think he did love anf respect Elia but more as one would love a close friend or a sister. He did completely fall in love with Lyanna and he did believe in the prophecy and maybe he even did believe that his child with Lyanna was the Prince Who Was Promised however I do not believe that affected his love for Lyanna... prophecy or no prophecy he still would have loved her bc she was wild and represented everything he wanted... freedom, love companionship, honesty, devotion... Rhaegar was fire and Lyanna ice yet his personality was ice and hers fire. I think he did partly drift through life and was sad bc of Aerys' treatment of Rhaella but I don't believe that he didn't have happy moments with Arthur and other members of the Kingsguard. And I also think that he had a plan to oust his father and Lyanna and Elia were both aware of it along with Arthur and the other Kingsguard at the Tower. And ofc I think Elia gave Rhaegar permission to divorce her and marry Lyanna bc i really can't see any Dornish woman just stand back and let her husband marry someone else and not find some way to completely ruin him.
Sorry for that long ass rant lol.
Decent Rhaegar/OC fics are so damn rare and the few I've found just don't do Rhaegar's character justice. Hoping you post the rewrite soon. Also I really love your other fic (The Sun) too. Jon and Larys are OTP af.

Ok I know I've already reviewed this story and whatnot but I keep reading it again because you are an AMaZinG author and I adore this ff. I imagine you're really busy with life and stuff but if you ever get time to update, please please do. You have such talent and a real gift for characterizations. Rhaegar is such an attractive character and Elise is a genuinely likable person, it literally makes me smile when I read it. Please update soon xx

Agh this is such an amazing ff-a really well written story and one of the best I’ve come across on this site about Rhaegar. I especially like the developing relationship between Rhaegar and Elise especially when he’s possessive/jealous lmao (I know its cliche). Rhaegar has always been such an intriguing character and I love the way you've portrayed him-with that exact combination of sadness and fierceness. I know its been a really long time since you’ve updated and probably won’t see this but if you do, please update-you have such talent and it would be a shame not to continue. Pplz plz update xxx

Lannister is more crazy than the king if he thinks that Aerys would be willing to have a non-Targaryen queen, when a perfect daughter exists. I can't wait for more!

Disappointed that there aren't more chapters but understand. Hope you return soon. Really enjoy this story and am intrigued with where things will go. Best wishes.

It's amazing how you were able to portray Elise as a beautiful and charming character without making her seem arrogant or cringy and I really love your writing style, it makes me want to read every single word carefully because of how amazing it is. It's one of those stories where you never want the chapter to end. I salute youI'm very much looking forward to your rewrite or update

This story is a goner.."Rewrite" is just a AUTHORS way of SAYING.."I'm done, can't do it, the story is abandoned" etc etc..It's an excuse.

Twin is out of his mind if he thinks Aerys will allow his daughter to marry Jamie. She was made for Rhaegar.
| booboo666goo chapter 7 . 10/20/2017
If you want to make it more exiting do not show every side of the story focus on one character or tho characters. Maybe some one timers like elises grandfather, in the prologue. My suggestion focus on Aerys or someone close to him and Elise.

How does Rhaegar know Cersei? The books don't say much of it.
