A list of various GoT/aSoIaF fic recs.

A Place of No Return by lyannas (crossfirehurricane)
Pairing/Characters: Arthur Dayne/Lyanna Stark; others
Summary: Upon learning of his sister’s abduction, Brandon Stark is persuaded to practice patience at Brynden Tully’s behest. Together, they lead a search party that heads not for the Red Keep, but for Prince Rhaegar himself. This puts a wedge in Rhaegar’s plans and nearly throttles Lyanna’s dreams of freedom– but only nearly. It falls to Ser Arthur Dayne to brave the task of escorting the wolfish lady to the Tower of Joy, and the pair embark on a journey that will seal their fates.

They say that it’s the journey that’s important, not the destination; and indeed, it is the journey that makes all the difference.

A Stitch In Time by Little_Ghost14
Pairing/Characters: Robert Baratheon/Lyanna Stark, Lyanna Stark/Rhaegar Targaryen, Jon Snow/Sansa Stark, Ashara Dayne/Ned Stark; others
Summary: Mel’s first ever resurrection attempt goes a little wrong and poor old Jon finds himself being catapulted back in time. However, there’s a rhyme and reason behind R’llhor’s madness and Jon has an important mission to fulfil before he can return to his own time, ready to win the war for the dawn and defeat the Knight’s King. For Jon’s “resurrection”, I’ve gone with the show simply because we haven’t yet seen it in the books. The rest is a mix of book and show verse.

Time slip stories have long been a favourite of mine, no matter how cliché they are at times. Naturally, I’ve always wanted to dabble in one myself, so here it is. As always, none of this is mine. GRRM and HBO own all. This isn’t meant to be overly serious, or anything like that. It’s just me experimenting with different story concepts. Thanks again and enjoy.

And give all the love that you have in your soul by janie_tangerine
Pairing/Characters: Jaime Lannister/Brienne of Tarth, Jon Connington/Rhaegar Targaryen, Jon Connington/Original Male Character(s); others
Summary: “As in, there is one future where the White Walkers are defeated immediately, the Long Night is merely a passing shadow and we are spared most of the senseless deaths that came upon Westeros since Ned Stark died. But it’s not a future I can try to turn into a reality,” Bran says with a long sigh.

“What – what do you mean?” Lord Connington doesn’t sound too convinced, but he’s listening intently, or so it seems from the frown on his face.

“That in order for us all to live, Aerys Targaryen must die not sooner and not later than he did, but Rhaegar must live,” Bran says tiredly, “along with Elia Martell and her children. Whether Lyanna Stark does or not is irrelevant, as long as all three children live and know they are the heads of the dragon. It’s no job for someone like me – I can only walk if I visit the past or the future, not if I want to live in it. How useless it is that one has such powers but then cannot even walk, isn’t it?”

“You – you mean to – send us to the past?” Brienne asks, barely audible.
Length: 90K

Dragonstone by Danivat (DannieU)
Pairing/Characters: Jon Snow/Margaery Tyrell; Arthur Dayne, others
Summary: After the death of his brother, Robert Baratheon needs a loyalist Lord on Dragonstone. He also really wants back in Ned’s good graces.

Or, the Game goes on after the Rebellions. The Starks still won’t play, but everyone is playing the Game all around them, and Jon Sand has somehow become an important piece. Robert Baratheon, unknowingly, is the Targaryens’ greatest asset.
Length: 100K

Finding Her Wolf by Nevermore_red
Pairing/Characters: Sandor Clegane/Sansa Stark; others
Summary: Sansa flees with Sandor Clegane the night the Blackwater burns. After being attacked in the woods while on the run, she realizes she’s tired of being the damsel in distress. She wants to learn to protect herself, to be able to take down her enemies, of which she has many. She needs to find her wolf again, and who better to help her than one of the most feared warriors in all of Westeros?
Length: 65K

If Ned Was Smart by orphan_account
Pairing/Characters: Lyanna Stark/Rhaegar Targaryen; Ned Stark, others
Summary: The Starks are supposed to be brutal and effective. How else would they have conquered the largest territory in Westeros?

What if Ned was Cregan reborn?
Length: 1K

Frost Flowering by IoG
Pairing/Characters: Sansa Stark/Willas Tyrell, others
Summary: In a world where the Seven Kingdoms fall apart less catastrophically and leave prejudices standing, old and new, Sansa must make her path through the newly independent North and the Six Kingdoms.
Length: 76K

God Knows What Is Hiding In Those Weak And Sunken Eyes by SecondStarOnTheLeft
Pairing/Characters: Sansa Stark/Willas Tyrell, others
Summary: Ned stopped just inside the doors, looking down into Sansa’s face again. He touched the pale lavender of her eyelid, heart aching for this perfect creature and all that would be denied her if the maesters were right.

“She is our daughter,” Ned said firmly after a moment, looking up to meet Catelyn’s worried gaze. “And her being able to see or not does not change that.”
Length: 16K

Hold On To Your Heart by lyannas (crossfirehurricane)
Pairing/Characters: Arthur Dayne/Lyanna Stark; others
Summary: Rhaegar Targaryen and his siblings have conquered the North with fire and blood. Lyanna Stark is left with no choice but to submit to save her family name– even if it means she must wed their bastard brother Arthur Dayne.
Length: 59K

If you try to break me, you will bleed by Dialux
Pairing/Characters: Jon Snow/Sansa Stark, others
Summary: It had been a slash across her chest from a White Walker’s sword that finally ended her life. Sansa’d landed in a puddle of her own blood, and she’d died quickly, quietly.

And then she’d awoken with a gasp, trembling, in a bed that had burned under Theon’s betrayal.
Length: 96K

Lack of Color by girloficeandfire
Pairing/Characters: Sandor Clegane/Sansa Stark, others
Summary: AU in which Sandor doesn’t desert during the Battle of the Blackwater; but he doesn’t know about Sansa being forced to marry Tyrion until it happens. Joffrey then trolls and plots and insists that Sandor guard his uncle and new good-aunt…
Length: 72K

More like the man you were meant to be by janie_tangerine
Pairing/Characters: Jaime Lannister/Brienne of Tarth; Jon Snow, others
Summary: In which Robert, instead of keeping Jaime in King’s Landing after the rebellion, sends him to Winterfell.

Or, alternatively: in which Jaime gets to keep his oaths, gains both Ned’s and Cat’s respect and Jon Snow finds himself growing up with his own sworn sword.

Or, even more alternatively: in which Brienne’s father sends her to be a warden at Winterfell after she defies her last suitor and some things change and others stay the same.
Length: 36K

Winter Thorns of Highgarden by Madrigal_in_training
Pairing/Characters: Jon Snow/Willas Tyrell, others
Summary: The knight’s supposed to save the princess from the dragon but here, the princess is a dragon, the knight is a bookish lord, and the greatest threat is either the old lady in the blue wimple or the honorable warden with the Ice sword. Because no one thought a second Stark girl would be kidnapped for marriage or that the sensible Willas Tyrell would be the one to kidnap her.
