I wonder what life would be like with confidence?
modern day GoT AU → Stark kids
It clicked just today why I love these AU things (so happy the OP made more!) so much: Because they remind me 100% of Kings, one of my favorite tragically-short-lived TV shows of all time besides Firefly. Like, they legitimately are the exact same concept except applying GoT stuff to real-Europe geography. (Kings was basically set in North America but used biblical place names.)
