au meme » ANN PERKINS & APRIL LUDGATE as kind-of-incompetent spies made to team up on a secret mission (because they’ve been blacklisted by just about everyone else) despite their mutual dislike of each other. April is considered new to the job, but trigger happy & reckless, while Ann has gotten bored of it all, smokes too much & really just wants to make it home in time for Downton Abbey reruns. (for robbasstark).
the people of the Westerosi System have seen better days - the Hand of the King has been murdered, there are tremors of war throughout the system, and after the system goes through a second hand in as many years, North declares themselves in all out rebellion against Crownland.
to make matters worse, there’s talk brought by traders and freighters from the Essos System that an ancient evil has been been called back from beyond the grave by a girl Queen, the last remaning member of an exiled Westerosi family.
there’s war in the sky, whispers of aliens across the hyperspace lanes, and turmoil among the seven small planets that orbit the red dwarf star Westeros.

“What are you singing to her Doctor?”
“I’m singin’ an old nursery rhyme from Gallifrey. I want to make sure she knows the language.”
She never spent so much time in the stables before her mother hired the new girl. Before the new girl, the stables were a smelly, bug-invested land Chloe preferred not to venture—not for all the horses in the kingdom. Stables were for stable-hands, not the daughters of lords.
But then her mother dragged the new girl into her life—an orphan, plucked fresh from her father’s deathbed—and the whole world seemed to shift beneath her feet. The new girl, who keeps her chin up and her eyes defiant, though her words are soft and obedient at all times, is nothing like Chloe. Nor is she like the other girls in Chloe’s sewing classes, or her cousins, or her friends. She is a beast all her own making, and Chloe is, shocking though it is, irresistibly drawn to her.
The stables seem suddenly far less smelly and fly-infested, with the new girl around to clean it out. Chloe leans her weight against a stall, stroking the nose of her father’s best stallion, and watches out of the corner of her eye as the girl pitches hay and sweeps floors. Dressed like any other hand—most of whom are men, which only makes this girl more magnetic—in a coarse tunic and thick trousers, her hair is tied recklessly out of her eyes. Her forehead is permanently sweat-dampened in the July heat, her hands visibly calloused from the work.
Chloe finds her stunning.
They don’t speak. Chloe entertains all manner of conversation topics as she draws thread through a scrap of fabric in class, trying to look as though she is listening to the willowy blonde girl who constantly talks her ear off. She comes up with a million questions—What was the girl’s father like? Where is her mother? What does she really want to do with her life, rather than mucking out Chloe’s father’s stables?—but as soon as the girl is here, standing before her with her serious brow and her twisting mouth, all words flee. Chloe is left standing with her forehead propped against that of a horse, trying to look as though she isn’t too interested in a servant.
Her mother would be so displeased.
Her father would be amused.
The girl remains unreadable.
Yes; her life has become much more interesting with the arrival of this new stable hand.
She wonders how long it will take for the girl to finally tell her her name.
