The problem with, say, me making an impassioned plea to Nestor for Myranda's hand - possibly the only relatively legitimate solution to the situation that I can think of - is that nobody would buy it. While we've interacted and have even been friendly in the past, for a variety of reasons that was about the long and short of it.

Any my usual solution to most problems - smashing them to bits - is not really applicable here.

That said, she has to have brought this up to her father. What has his reaction been?

You do look good though Myranda doesn't seem to have her heart in it.

Given the situation, that's not really surprising.

And you're left with Myranda...who's well...you know....

And here I was looking forward to having an evening of not needing to worry about something for once.

... this is why we can't have nice things.

I can't really say or do things to improve matters at this point, so at the very least I'll offer her companionship, mostly quiet though it may be.

Did you introduce yourself yet?

... How the FUCK do you get into this shite, boy?

That's it. I'm not letting you out of my site until you're bloody well knighted!

Couldn't tell you if I tried.

I'll do my best not to get into trouble any further Master.

That said, Myranda thinks you're gallant... and Mya's a little upset that she missed the fun... AGAIN!

Soak in Myranda's praise, admit to Mya that I was lucky and I managed to surprise them.

[/quote]Mycheal later on admits that Mya's getting to be a bit scary...[/quote]

You wanted her....just don't hurt her heart...cause I might not even get the chance to get at you.



"Why?" I ask with an almost droll tone, "Does tits and a box somehow cause some form of malady that negatively affects the brain?"

I steeple my hands, "Frankly I think the way that women are often treated in the north is a disgrace. Daughters are not fucking livestock to be pawned off to some stranger more than twice their age before their first blood has even dried because their father desires something shiny..."

I'm sneering at this point.

OOC: You're soapboxing again.

Interesting is the general thought.

RUBBINGS!

Now I need another person lunatic enough to go north of the wall...

What?

"You've done this before?!"

Four people eventually succumb to heat stroke, one of whom looks like she's about to croak.

She hasn't, until just recently you were a...to be honest no one... and even if she knew your worth...her father wouldn't think you a good bet.

She gives you a wan smile. It's heart breaking to see.

She doesn't go far from you most of the night and although she doesn't show it, you can see her world crashing. She does point out her likely husband. You spot him and recognize him, a former redhaired Wyman Manderly would be a good descriptor, chunky and jolly looking but more a favorite uncle or grandfather.

I actually meant her attitude towards marrying someone several times her age. I know, it's far from unusual or even unexpected in some cases.

As for me, while I'm no longer a nobody I haven't exactly acquired the kind of political capital that could reliably be leveraged against getting her out of that kind of arrangement.

She gives you a wan smile.  It's heart breaking to see.

While we haven't been romantically involved she is Mya's friend, and my friend, and seeing her like this hurts.

Dammit, the _smart_ move would be to do nothing and let this play out. Mya would be depressed, Myranda is strong enough to weather it even if it might leave her more than a bit bitter and sour her attitude towards me, and I'd feel bad about myself for around a week or so. No expended political capital, which I don't have a lot of anyway, no promises made, and back at the Holdfast with all my initial objectives achieved and not having made too many enemies.

Such a nice dream to have.

But given the local realities, pretty much as expected.

"You know, I'm not even sure whether or not I -can- love someone," I tell Myranda once we're out of earshot, "but Myranda? You've been a true friend to both Mya and myself, so all I really need you to do is ask me those two simple words."

I look her in the eyes. "Ask me to help you."

Soak in Myranda's praise,

Albar takes you to the side and demands to know exactly what happened. Though you have a feeling half of it was to get you the hell away from his sister.

admit to Mya that I was lucky and I managed to surprise them.

"So you charged them head on yelling surprise did you?"

You have this conversation once you get to Darry Castle... so Raymun overhears this...

Oh, its just that... well... he always thought she was more delicate. That's all. She's acting more like a full on Firstman or a Rhoynar girl, not the rough and tumble Andal lass he thought she was. He still fancies her but this might take a little getting used to.

Seriously, Mycheal arrived around when you were twelve and missed how she was before you grew too tall and she grew too curvy to pass as one another. Back then you were pretty much Thing 1 and Thing 2... two halves of the same whole...

It was only when you had 6 inches and 40lbs on her that you were able to reliably able to out wrestle her...

That said you didn't do all boyish stuff. You actually sew better than half the maids in the Gates of the Moon. You used to let her skip some of her boring girly lessons by heroically taking up the burden...

OOC: You're soapboxing again.

Fuck you. My character loves his sister and the idea of her being disrespected like that infuriates him. It's why he demanded that she be permitted to marry for love. It's also why he begged to have her legitimized as well.

Interesting is the general thought.

Aye. There are many things I'm in agreement with the Dornish with.

"You've done this before?!"

I explain what I did after I found the axes. And that I have a one eyed bannerman waiting for me in King's Landing who discovered what the rubbings said.

As this isn't my houses history I won't be able to offer the same reward, but for the sake of promoting historical knowledge I'd be happy to throw in with this one.

Who knows what great legacy they could be sitting atop?

Four people eventually succumb to heat stroke, one of whom looks like she's about to croak.

Get them naked, out of the sun, and covered in soaking rags.

Not as rare as you think but the man's offer is damn good. And Nestor's got NOTHING except for his stewardship so he's trying to set his kids up.

As for me, while I'm no longer a nobody I haven't exactly acquired the kind of political capital that could reliably be leveraged against getting her out of that kind of arrangement.

Well you'd need to talk to Nestor to try to throw your hat in.

While we haven't been romantically involved she is Mya's friend, and my friend, and seeing her like this hurts.

Dammit, the _smart_ move would be to do nothing and let this play out.

Such a nice dream to have.

Well to be fair you ARE the son of the king bastard or no, you DEMOLISHED the best knights in the seven kingdoms in the joust and melee, you're a landed knight now, AND you've got the potential for more if you become the Commander of the Gold Cloaks which is directly under the master of law a member of the Small Council.

But given the local realities, pretty much as expected.

"You know, I'm not even sure whether or not I -can- love someone," I tell Myranda once we're out of earshot, "but Myranda? You've been a true friend to both Mya and myself, so all I really need you to do is ask me those two simple words."

I look her in the eyes. "Ask me to help you."

She looks at you, a storm of emotions in her eyes, finally she says, "Help...me...please. Being by your side is more than enough for me."

Actually you probably know more about good manners and how a castle is run than any other 3 knights. Why, you even know which fork is which... :p

It's true.

To say he's protective of Mya is an understatement. She was literally his ownly family for most of his life and is his twin.

Though no, there is no incest.

Well he's got the right to choose the Wall. Every crook can beg for that.

He supported the Targs during the rebellion. You know that much. This seems to be something of a bitter pill.

Well he DID throw his weight behind Robb in the War of the five kings so it wasn't ALL bad.

Kind of telling that his endearing memory of me is a little kid who beat the shit out of me....

I ask if she's alright and I mention that the hit was called by someone who owes her father money. He might need to look at whoever owes him money and could hire a hit like this.

Amazingly they come out perfectly fine, with no lingering consequences.

Eventually you reach Sandstone, the house of Lord Qorgyle (OOC: JESUS HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE THAT?!). A sandy Dornish house and the foster home of Oberyn Martell in the days of his youth. You're met by Lord Quentyn, and his sons Gulian and Arron. They respectful but there is a bit of leeryness there.

Well, not many people actually get to the wall... sending someone north is expensive. Its why there's a shortage of men. Most lords can't be buggered to pay the cost of shipping their asses north under guard. So unless some brothers of the watch show up with their black coach, it'll be the block.

Well he DID throw his weight behind Robb in the War of the five kings so it wasn't ALL bad.

Yes, but he still doesn't like robert of anything robert related.

Kind of telling that his endearing memory of me is a little kid who beat the shit out of boys twice my size...

First impressions...

And really, you did him proud. You're going to make him grey before his time, but you did him proud.

"And if I hadn't interfered, the heir to house Darry would have been murdered.  I couldn't sit by and ignore someone in peril like that."

He sighs. "Point well made."

I am sorry for making a ruckus like that though.

"You did the honorable thing... even if its bloody annoying."

I ask if she's alright and I mention that the hit was called by someone who owes her father money.  He might need to look at whoever owes him money and could hire a hit like this.

He ruffles at that and will have to speak to her father seriously.

I welcome Raymun to the crew and ask that he not mind Mya, she's a little nuts.

She punches you in the arm.

Raymun looks amused.

[/quote]NOT WORTH THE DRESS AND THE SMALL TALK!  I HAD TO PUNCH GOATS FOR AN HOUR AFTERWARD TO FEEL LIKE A MAN AGAIN![/quote]

Your sister used to punch a lot of goats too.

Now she just punches you.

Anyways, into the crownlands... d100!

Where the hell did you find someone nut's enough to try?  The North of the wall is a frozen hell on earth....and is he for hire?

"I promised to make him a Bannerman... and Bravosi Bravos are just the kind of lunatics who's take that challenge. Hint."

They'll give it a try, but they don't have the highest hopes.

"All else fails, we have a translation of the tablets that I sent north. We can start by using them to reverse engineer the First Man's runic language through textual comparison...."

And from here I ramble off into the realm of cryptography...

One thing they'll probably get out of this is don't read my mail you'll never understand it.

Speaking of languages... hmmm...

I speak to Robert about the legality of buying a slave, freeing them, and then paying them a generous wage to teach.

In fact, that gives me an idea.

There are many skills that the Free Cities are famed for... and most of the skills are practiced by their slaves.

Do the above on a large scale. It could be played off as doing our part to combat slavery by freeing men from bondage... while gaining an important new skill set.

Or is my brain overheating again?

Amazingly they come out perfectly fine, with no lingering consequences.

I do think those who did stroke out, if they show any continued weakness, should be sent back to the coasts to recover in more friendly climates

I'm friendly and I'm polite. Basically the same friendly and loveable eccentric as above.

I so ask about Oberyn. I'll admit, the Red Viper is something of a childhood hero. He's dynamic, and while not without his flaws, is quite inspirational...

Heh

Bit pricey, even on a large scale. Besides, the Essossi might have an issue with you doing that AND the prices WOULD SHOOT UP THROUGH THE ROOF once people figure that out. One or two...maybe.

Though the Maesters might be offended you're trying to muscle them out of your circle.

None of them do amazingly, apparently this episode was just a case of bad-luck.

Eye-brows are raised around, even in Dorne he's more than a little infamous...not exactly someone to be inspired by or be a hero.

You swear he turns ghost white.

"Thank you...I think."

Glower!

I would look into this...but this isn't my fight and I don't have the resources and background or connections to be useful in any way except as muscle.

His lands, his business. You have done your part.

"See what I mean.  Bloody-thirsty wild woman."

She gives you that special "Shall I punch you again?" look...

Dice gods don't fail me now.

Several days later you're on the way through the crownlands when in the middle of the night you feel some cramping as you get the sinking sensation that the rabbit stew wasn't rabbit...

One long, fruitful visit to the out house later, you start back towards the inn to find... well... there's someone who seems to be trying to open your window very quietly... he's in darkened leather armor with a midnight blue cloak and a hood...

They knew Bravosi Bravo's were nuts but they didn't think they were THAT crazy.

"Give one a Dragonsteel blade, a warm coat, and a promises of a generous reward and you could probably get them looking for Others..."

And they go cross-eyed though the maester you note is taking notes.

"My apologies. I tend to ramble..."

One thing they'll probably get out of this is don't read my mail you'll never understand it.

HAH

Bit pricey, even on a large scale.  Besides, the Essossi might have an issue with you doing that AND the prices WOULD SHOOT UP THROUGH THE ROOF once people figure that out.  One or two...maybe.

Strategy. Don't let them know what you're doing until you've already done it.

Though the Maesters might be offended you're trying to muscle them out of your circle.

Oh, I'm not. Just sometimes it helps to have someone who is a native. The Maesters read about Essos but lack the on the ground perspective.

As for the other, its all specialized skills... like lenses makers for example.

None of them do amazingly, apparently this episode was just a case of bad-luck.

Wonderful! I'm obviously very pleased.

Ah...considering Oberyn spent some of his formative years here...they're a bit more used to it.

Ah. So I come off as something of "Inspired By" the Red Viper.

Eye-brows are raised around, even in Dorne he's more than a little infamous...not exactly someone to be inspired by or be a hero.

"My original plan for my life was to become a renown mercenary, establish myself as a force to be reckoned with before earning lands and title with sword and fury... ideally by conquering one or more of the free cities..." I smile. "Funny how plans change, is it not?"

Well you'd need to talk to Nestor to try to throw your hat in.

I intend to, likely after the evening is done, or the day after if there isn't time.

Well to be fair you ARE the son of the king bastard or no, you DEMOLISHED the best knights in the seven kingdoms in the joust and melee, you're a landed knight now, AND you've got the potential for more if you become the Commander of the Gold Cloaks which is directly under the master of law a member of the Small Council.

The second part is a maybe and speculation on the future. The first, at least the martial one, relies on me being around or in a position to send aid.

Wait, how do dowries work in Westeros anyway?

She looks at you, a storm of emotions in her eyes, finally she says, "Help...me...please.  Being by your side is more than enough for me."

... aaand she's got me there. Might as well start this off right, since symbolism has worked out well for me in the past ... and also because I kind of really want to right now. I reach up and tilt her head back with a finger under her chin, then lean down and kiss her. I try to make it as sweet as I can.

We then get back to the festivities. And considering we were merely out of earshot, that should be just public enough to get the ball rolling.

Alright...I plan on sneaking on HIM and once I get close jumping him and getting one arm across his neck and the other around his head. Once there I'll tell him, "You even breath funny, I'll pop your head right off."

Not entirely sure really they don’t seem to come up that often surprisingly.

She kiss back, strongly, it’s rather nice.

You must have been lucky because only a few people seemed to have seen that….unfortunately one of those was Myranda’s brother. He doesn’t looked pleased.

It takes a little while but Nestor does allow you to see him after the feast. He looks a little bedraggled but not angry at all. He asks you to sit and he asks what it is you wish to discuss with him.

I was disgusted, annoyed, and frankly had just had an honest attempt to have mercy thrown in my face. So I went there. He actually was lifted two feet from the ground by the blow... I then threw him over my shoulders like a stack of wood and marched Cercei to the throne room, not even letting her grab a sheet."

I shake my head. "As the Mountain was still in Kings Landing after the Torny she summoned him as her champion since Jamie was pretty much catatonic." My eyes narrow. "I'll be honest. During my joust with him, I wasn't looking to unhorse him, I was hoping to kill him in both the joust and melee. After all, he's 'accidentally' killed dozens. When he arrived I asked to borrow the king's hammer. I fought him with a full on warhammer hammer in each hand, the hammer of his youth which I still carry along with my axes and his current. I lost myself in my hate. I was faster than him and knew it, and while not as strong I am strong enough and had weapons ideally suited for targets him heavy armor. I went for his joints and head. Once I'd gotten in my first good blow it was over..." my eyes glaze a bit, "And I made sure he'd never hurt anyone ever again."

Though I do note one thing, "And if you call Jamie Kingslayer, don't do it as an insult. I believe he was an honorable man lead to dishonor by the most vile woman in the 7 Kingdoms. I talked to him on the wall, and the reason he killed the Mad King was because he'd placed Wyldfire throughout kings landing and was ordering them to burn the city to the ground. Jamie had to chose between two oaths, his oath to protect the king and his oath to protect the innocent. It was a hard choice, but it is my belief he chose correctly."

Well, you actually get after him a while until you start to feel real dizzy and puke.

Then you find yourself being hefted up and pulled back into your room.

From there is a bit of a blur. A really shitty blur. You remember crying and screaming, and frantic BS before passing out.

As you come back into focus but Myranda and Mya are in your room and they look like shit. It seems to be midday.

You hear a chuckle and you look up to see Draymun Darry looking at you with a smirk. "Well, you're an odd one aren't you my friend. I've never heard of a man sleeping off both Manticore Venom and the Tears of Lys..."

I do to. So what to now?

"My lord ... actually, I'd been wondering how to approach this in a manner that wouldn't see me trussed up and carted off to the Eyrie with the sole purpose of chucking me off the side, but I suppose in this case the straightforward way is best," I offer after I've taken my seat. "I intend to court Myranda."

... and knowing my luck this is where Albar walks in ...

And now you're smelling something...primal...off of her.

I breathe in sharply and OH GOD HORMONES I imagine my pupils've contracted to tiny pinpricks. You know, feeling like someone had jabbed me in the chest with a cattle prod, but in a good way.

I trail my hand down from where it'd somehow found itself in her hair, along her spine, to rest at the small of her back, where it stays for most of the rest of the evening.

Sure he has, when he doesn't know you're there.

Oh dear. This has been going on for a while then. Myranda's crush I mean.

... dammit, Mya, what have you been telling her?

Oh. Wait.

*facepalm*

My misadventures with the maid couldn't have helped. Myranda might be adorable, but she's also canny enough that I imagine between her and Mya's tendency to poke their noses into every nook and cranny of the keep and her puppy dog eyes, she likely knows most of what's going on around her in short order.

It's a pleasant evening and no one makes any comment.

I likely spend a lot of time telling tourney stories. The wonderful thing is I likely don't even have to embellish anything in order to make sure people are paying attention, and the other knights and squires who were there (like the ones Mya, myself and Ser Martyn traveled with in the first place) will corroborate.

Redfort is a perfect gentleman.

Points for trying. Does Mya look like she's enjoying herself?

I turn my head to Mya and Myranda, "Oh girls don't tell me you wore yourselves down so hard over me I ain't that fragile, nor am I worth that." I make my best attempt at a wry grin when I say that. I was trying to tell a joke.

"As a twin I'm more revolted than you can be. I love my sister. She's like the other half of my soul and I'd die for her in an instant, and I know she'd do the same for me... so to see that kind of bond... perverted into something like that..." I shudder.

"Narcissism to a sickening level if what I've heard is correct."

"Between you and I... you might want to be there when we present the head. I think you'll like the surprise that comes with it. I know Lord Paramount Duran will enjoy it."

That piques their interest and they might make the attempt.

"It's my feelings that he should have been banished from the king's guard but otherwise left with honor intact."

"Boy had no right to that cloak, even if he's a master swordsman."

I do to. So what to now?

Well you could try hunting rock lizards...a more threatening venture than it sounds like. The lizards are monitor lizards twice the size of a komodo dragon.

"I intend to court Myranda."

He's quiet for a while, then he turns to you and says, "You know I've wondered when you would ask, my daughter has been ...fond of you for a long, long, time...ever since she met you when you could both barely walk. I've ignored it for the most part as although you're a good man...you didn't have much to offer Myranda...King's son or not.... I know that it is different now but I would like to hear from your lips what you can offer my daughter?

... and knowing my luck this is where Albar walks in ...

wanna roll for it?

I breathe in sharply and OH GOD HORMONES I imagine my pupils've contracted to tiny pinpricks. You know, feeling like someone had jabbed me in the chest with a cattle prod, but in a good way.

I trail my hand down from where it'd somehow found itself in her hair, along her spine, to rest at the small of her back, where it stays for most of the rest of the evening.

Let's just say you can tell she ... enjoyed the hand.

Oh dear. This has been going on for a while then. Myranda's crush I mean.

Three years old.

... dammit, Mya, what have you been telling her?

woman's secret

Oh. Wait.

*facepalm*

My misadventures with the maid couldn't have helped. Myranda might be adorable, but she's also canny enough that I imagine between her and Mya's tendency to poke their noses into every nook and cranny of the keep and her puppy dog eyes, she likely knows most of what's going on around her in short order.

Let's say a couple of pillows got mussed up and there are a couple of ...tattered voodoo doll like dolls resembling girls you've been close to in her closet, nothing yandere or anything crazy but she had to vent somehow.

I likely spend a lot of time telling tourney stories. The wonderful thing is I likely don't even have to embellish anything in order to make sure people are paying attention, and the other knights and squires who were there (like the ones Mya, myself and Ser Martyn traveled with in the first place) will corroborate.

Both men and women hang onto your every word. Both because you're the guest of honor, but also because of the incredible things you did, and you're not a half-bad story teller.

Points for trying. Does Mya look like she's enjoying herself?

Yes...she's having a blast.

It's telling that he's asking what I can offer her rather than what this marriage would offer _him_. It also means this might actually work.

I open my mouth ... then close it after realizing what I was about to start saying.

Well they can set a hunt up for the beasts though they warn you that their bite is HIGHLY deadly, whether poison or something else but their victims die horribly of a scorching fever within minutes of the bite, if the trauma of such a huge beast taking a chunk out of them doesn't kill them already.

Well it takes several days but you eventually find a pair of tracks for a solitary 30 foot beast. Not the largest but a respectable size for a first attempt.

As for tracking the beast down, it goes perfectly, you quickly find the creature and find that it's asleep, sunning itself after gorging on a horse if the bones are a hint. How do you want to handle this. There is an outcropping of rocks about the beast you can get the jump on it from without being able to reach you.

If he'd kept loyalty to the crown, I would have understood. Civil wars are like that. Instead he simply extorted Ned Stark to let him past. One would be born of loyaly no matter how twisted. The other sheer greed.

OF course, it was the greedy who got the most out of that war...

Trip would take a bit long and I have things to do around here. Oh well. I'll get to see Westeros' reaction to handmade ice-cream sometime in the future, though. Mark my words.

I'm struck dumb for a moment before my brain manages an emergency reboot.

"I'll need to get a line on a supply of moon tea ..." I mutter ... then explain that I'd prefer to have an actual name and a more secure reputation before wanting to consider sprogs.

And then I nearly kick myself because dammit, there's a hot and willing naked girl _right there_ and I'm standing around talking.

... anyway, while I'm paranoid as hell about the act itself, like I've said before, I've working fingers and tongue ^^. If Myranda isn't wearing a grin that has to be sandblasted off the following morning and there are no rumors going around about the Gates being haunted, I'm going to eat my helmet. Without relish.

Tempting as that is, I try to stay away from anything labeled 'rotgut' as a matter of principle. Guess I'll just have to live with it.

No real luck at finding the source, must be something a little more well hidden, might take some help.

Technically I just wanted to find out what the rumors were. If I wanted to trace the source of any of them, all I'd really have to do is to ask Myranda. She and Mya were notoriously good about finding out anything and everything about ... well, anything and everything there was to find out at the Gates and the surrounds.

She is a bit creeped out by the idea. She's going to be very careful with her food from now on.

As am I. Once I'm back on my feet I make sure to work my damaged arm to see the extent of the damage, to see how much I'm hindered, and to get myself back to fighting form.

I walk off humming.

You catch a few words, "That young man is terrifying."

If he'd kept loyalty to the crown, I would have understood. Civil wars are like that. Instead he simply extorted Ned Stark to let him past. One would be born of loyaly no matter how twisted. The other sheer greed.

OF course, it was the greedy who got the most out of that war...

Well not so much extorted as he sat on his duff until the fight was decided.

"I've heard some of the songs.They're not very favorable."

Heh

I lift a single javalin and aim at the base of the spine.

The spear strikes the beast but unfortunately it isn't a lethal blow. It DOES however make it angry. The thing is searching the rocks around it, trying to scent you out with it's tongue in the air.

Roll a d10 for evading the beast.

Heh

I'm struck dumb for a moment before my brain manages an emergency reboot.

"I'll need to get a line on a supply of moon tea ..." I mutter ... then explain that I'd prefer to have an actual name and a more secure reputation before wanting to consider sprogs.

And then I nearly kick myself because dammit, there's a hot and willing naked girl _right there_ and I'm standing around talking.

... anyway, while I'm paranoid as hell about the act itself, like I've said before, I've working fingers and tongue ^^. If Myranda isn't wearing a grin that has to be sandblasted off the following morning and there are no rumors going around about the Gates being haunted, I'm going to eat my helmet. Without relish.

It is a...FUN...night...9 hours.

And you need to find a gag....she's a little...noisy....

Luckily it seems that no one noticed, but Myranda has the BIGGEST smile on her face and a WONDERFUL spring in her step.

You're pretty sure her brother suspects.

... ooops.

When a girl stakes a claim her claim will be defended, even if her claim is as oblivious as a rock.

Tempting as that is, I try to stay away from anything labeled 'rotgut' as a matter of principle. Guess I'll just have to live with it.

Suit yourself, the nightmares come soon after.

Technically I just wanted to find out what the rumors were. If I wanted to trace the source of any of them, all I'd really have to do is to ask Myranda. She and Mya were notoriously good about finding out anything and everything about ... well, anything and everything there was to find out at the Gates and the surrounds.

Mostly the queen went balistic at the sight of you, but most are dismissing it as one, she's the queen, what she got to fear from you, two, she may be as proud as a cat but losing her shit like that sounds absurd.
