The HBO series Game of Thrones diverged enough from the book series to be considered a different telling of the same story. This story is based on the HBO series and everything up until the end of season seven is canon. You do not have to have watched the television series to enjoy this story, but it helps. I strongly advise Google Search for some of the characters you may not know. One of the reasons for writing fan fiction is that the characters live within your head, and when the show producers put together an abysmal season eight, I felt compelled to tell it a little differently. This story picks up at the battle of King’s Landing in the final episode but will cover what happened leading up to that moment. Some characters who perished in the television series are still alive as their destiny has not yet been fulfilled.
