| Agashi chapter 17 . 2/16
Welp... I was waiting for some real consequences to occur, like we were promised a couple chapters ago, but as the "consequence" turned out to be her getting pregnant - after having sex ONE time, in the grand-daddy of all cliches - I think I'm going to have to stop, unfortunately. Disappointing, since the beginning of this story (while admittedly not the best-written thing out there) was still very enjoyable...
I'm sorry for being harsh, and I don't mean this as a personal attack on you, but no. I can't believe anyone would willingly sleep with their uncle's murderer RIGHT after they watched the execution happen in front of their eyes. I kept reading in the hopes that she'd come to her senses and realize how effed-up and wrong it was afterward, but the story shifts right into pregnancy/babies/marriage fullstop... COMPLETELY glossing over poor Edmure's death. I don't know... maybe it gets addressed again in a future chapter? Either way, I can't stomach anymore romance with this horrifying event in the back of my mind.
Now, if you were going to go that route - say: Lyandra's combined grief/PTSD and confused attraction to Aegon lead to her making an incredibly self-destructive choice, fine. Follow through with it, at least! Have her struggle to deal with how messed up she's become, have Aegon be disgusted with himself, or at the very LEAST have the other characters properly call her out on it! A semi-disapproving comment from Samaria is NOT enough. Throwing a baby in there is just... I'm sorry, but there's no other way to put it... lazy writing.
Again, I apologize for the harshness of my tone. Again, this is not a personal attack. Your writing style is quite lovely. It's just the characters and plot elements that need work.

beginning of this book was amazing! I loved Lyandra's character. But it suddenly changed when she Literally Fucked her UNCLES KILLER! What the hell is wrong with her..then she brags to Samaria basically like "Hey can't believe I am pregnant and your not..lolshe is twisted and as mad as Aerys..and alos..Why the Hell did she choose to Let Her Blood Related BROTHER die instead of Aegon..I mean..what the hell talk about family closeness.. I liked Lyandra in the Beginning but after that..no..no way.. I am not saying your story isn't awesome! cause I enjoyed reading it. I loved all the plot twists. I loved how you could just describe how a person look, how they react to things, and how detailed this story is..but I personally don't agree with Lyandra having sex with her uncle's killer, bragging about being pregnant to Samaria, and letting her older brother/best friend die.. I am sorry if this sound mean, I did not intend to hurt anyones feelings.. I just had to state my opinion

Owwww, this is story has been epic, I loved it very much! Your OC characters are great and the plot you developed was really awesome. I felt very sorry when Samaria and Robb died but everything couldn't go right. I enjoyed this story very much and I'm gonna read your other Game of Thrones stories for sure! I saw that your other stories have a trailer but this one don't, will you make it? :) Just one question, you said that you picture Aegon like Alexander Ludwig, do you picture Lyandra as the girl of the story cover? Who is it? How did you picture Samaria? Thank you!

Just finished reading your story. Sad to see that King Robb did not live until the end, although I was not surprised.
Looking forward to reading more of your stories.

Have recently found and am enjoying your story. Lyandra has been an interesting character so far, and now I look forward to reading about Samaria.

I was very much enjoying this chapter until it came to this chapter, I know this is your own character but at the start she was cool but after reading this chapter she suddenly became retarded, who the heck sleeps with their uncles killer right after he kills him in front of their eyes?! And then suggesting to her uncle's killer to lie to her brother by practically saying "oh my sword just slipped on head" (ok that's dramatic) but she also said "maybe it's a good thing"? That's your freaking family! It doesn't matter if she is young or if it's the first time experiencing love, and I know it's just a story but family is family! And she's just immediately siding with the killer!? I was absolutely! enjoying this story but it was all ruined thanks to this chapter, sadly I won't be reading this anymore.

awesome story :)
| Total Targaryen chapter 25 . 5/20/2014
Hard to believe this is actually finished, but I think you did a good job tying up loose ends. I'm so glad that despite everything they've been through, Aegon and Lyandra have their sort of happy ending. Although Robb died, I feel as though you certainly nailed the point that his death was pretty much the deciding factor, and without it, the Targaryen-Stark alliance might not have won the war.

Good work with this story! I've loved reading it
It's so satisfying being able to finish a story like this - everyone seems to just stop half way through :(
