Reviews for The Gods Are Cruel
Scorpicus chapter 1 . 9/23/2012
This is a wonderful snapshot from Stannis' life. You've captured his character perfectly; all his bitterness and, in spite of it all, the determination to do his duty nonetheless. It's so sad, heartbreaking and IC that he is trying to reason with himself that it doesn't matter that he will not have a son, that it doesn't matter if Shireen lives or dies, as he has nothing worth them inheriting anyway. And that he thinks Shireen would be better off with a father like Davos. ;_;

Yet at the end he is determined to do his duty as a father for her. I would say it ends on a positive last line, except for Stannis seeming to conclude he doesn't deserve a son. (

All in all, fantastic job.

This was a great story. Stannis has always been one of my favorite characters in the series and you portrayed him fantastically here.
