Friday Fics Fix - What Is Dead May Never Die

'He does a lot of odd little things that Sansa suspects he isn’t even aware of anymore. Things that helped him get through another day, another hour, with Ramsay.'

Game of Thrones after many long, long years, is coming to an end.

We have one episode left - only one.

But if the Harry Potter fandom has taught us anything, it's that fanfiction will continue, long, long after the end of the series.

And that's bl**dy awesome.

Because fanfiction takes canon and runs with it.

It re-forms, reacts, re-moulds, re-examines, the characters and stories that we love - searching for different aspects and exploring different possibilities.

(Fangirling notes: canon is the official material from films, TV series, books, etc. The on-page, on-screen, stuff.)

Fandom brings life to media, even after it ends.

The truly beautiful thing is that stories aren't passive, dead, set-in-stone things. Stories are alive.

(I'm gonna play the 'raised by hippies' card in my defence... I realise I play this card a lot. But it's true.)

OK, I'm gonna go into SPOILER territory now!



OK. That's plenty of warning.

You can't yell at me. 😉

So after the devastating twofer of Theon and Sansa reuniting, and then Theon dying fighting off what appeared to be hundreds of ice zombies (how did he do that by himself?! Anyone...?) I need some more Theon in my life.

So what I give you this week, dearest nerdlets, is a well-written (yes! well-written! woo!) fic about Sansa helping Theon to recover after the whole Ramsey Bolton ordeal.

Sansa to Theon: 'Your name is Theon Greyjoy.'
Via Giphy

(And I obv. hate Ramsey Bolton, but the actor who played him, a Welsh fella named Iwan Rheon, is absolutely amazing.

I also love that some of our names here in Wales are more Game of Thrones than the names that are actually from Game of Thrones.)

Obviously, with that whole torture and degradation storyline, it's not all sunshine and rainbows in this fic.

So please, please, please dearest nerdlets - be aware of that.

If you gotta stop reading, then you gotta stop reading - you come first.

None of that stuff is on-page here, but the aftermath is. So be careful.

This week's fic, then, is:

Are you a Game of Thrones fan?
Do you have any idea how Theon fought off that many ice zombies?!
