I’d always known about my own death, of course. Trouble was, I thought
everyone knew. When I was a kid, my mother’s cries of, “Don’t play in
the street, you could get yourself killed,” were met with as firm a, “No
it won’t, Mommy” as a toddler could muster. It seemed wrong, somehow, to
tell her precisely how or why I knew that, but at least back then my
death was the only thing I could see.

up here for the first time.

After that, it just got worse.

Quick, Bran!  Faster.

“80. Sniper fire from some kid wanting revenge. 45. Enemy spy
compromises your position, killed on sight. 53. Car crash on your way to
the pentagon. 35. Tortured to death. Oh,” I grin, not bothering to hide
my excitement. “Oh that’s interesting.”

All dwarves are bastards  in their father’s eyes.


and you were never afraid.

Miss Secretary escorts me to the office, the pale wrinkles in her face
hidden beneath a caked-on makeup style only women her age wore these

He’d be the second most  powerful man in the kingdoms.

Of course, what could I expect, when before I even know someone’s name,
before I even shake their hand, I know exactly when and how they’ll die?

– Do you know what?  – What?

The job’s nothing major, at least not compared to that done by some of
the other people who work here. I can’t leave town unsupervised, but I’m
also not risking my life by cooperating. I stay in my
government-approved apartment with two CIA agents guarding the door
(neither of them die until they’re well into retirement) until my next
appointment, then I come here and do whatever it is they want this time.
As far as “kidnapped by the government” jobs go, it’s not half bad.
Still, there’s nothing that makes you miss freedom more than not having

This was my favorite dress.

They’re not particularly attractive but not ugly either. The woman on
the left has skin so dark it almost blends in with the pantsuit she’s
wearing. Her hair is tied back in a bun, and she looks like she won’t
care no matter what I tell her. The other is pale as a sheet, and though
she’s not looking at me, I can still see some perspiration on her brow.
No one likes knowing how they die. Not in this line of work, at least.
The man next to her has skin like mine, dark, a little ruddy, but his
face betrays no emotion I can discern. No, that’s all concentrated in
his hands, tightly clenched behind his back. The youngest is next to
him. He’s not as pale as the woman opposite his buddy, but he’s still
white and looks like he’s fresh out of college, probably hasn’t seen the
sun in a while. He’s the only one who looks like whatever I say will
come as a relief to him. Out of the five, he’s probably the most
dangerous. Next to him is an older man, tanned skin, I can see some gray
hairs peeking out over his ears. He probably doesn’t even realize
they’re there yet. He’s quaking in his boots, but just his boots.

Have you?


See you at sundown.


He’s so handsome.

“What’s interesting?” The boss raises his eyebrows, arms folded.

Such a beauty shouldn’t stay  hidden up here forever.

I’m sitting in a small waiting room, no different from any other.
Frankly, I’ve wondered since my youth if all waiting rooms are actually
just the same room leading out to different places. Like the doctor’s,
the dentist’s, a lawyer’s office, a financial advisor, or in my case, a
high-security military laboratory somewhere underneath Langley.

When Dothraki are  defeated in combat,

“If it’s any consolation, I only outlive you for a few seconds,” I say
as we back out the door.

– I hope I’ll serve you well.  – You will.


It won’t be long now.


– the first of his name…  – Don’t look away.

It’s only really bad when I’m with unfamiliar people. Which, granted,
doesn’t happen often these days.

Where is he?


Tell them I’m sorry.


– None of us will ever father sons…  – I don’t care about that!


What is it?

Three men and two women are lined up on the other end of the office,
standing perfectly straight in front of an old white man whom I can only
assume is their boss, and refusing to make eye contact with me. Miss
Secretary turns to leave.

– He showed me what was what.  – Aye.


And have you bled yet?

Imagine, one day you’re sitting at home, making your kid peanut butter
and jelly sandwiches for lunch and all of a sudden, you look up and your
son is clamped to your leg, snot and tears running down his chin and
blubbering about hospitals and wilted “get well” bouquets and too pale
skin contrasting with the familiar dark skin he’d always known.

Oh, show us your muscles.


By the Lannisters.

“Well, let’s get started,” I say. I feel the man start to sway, his skin
clammy as the realization that he’s about to die sinks in.

Damn it, Ned, stand up.


And I know I’m a deserter.

There are no direwolves  south of the wall.

There’s a bead of silence growing between the seven of us. I took the
moment to step back and think for a bit, to think of my mother, Stage 4

research and wishful thinking will fix. I know there’s no changing fate.

how they died, I would see it eventually. Then it got more frequent,
with people I wasn’t familiar with, to the point where I’d say “hello”

I nod at the middle-aged, bottle-blonde secretary. She’s just doing her
job, I can’t fault her too much when I’m just doing mine. She’s going to
get hit by a car in six months. Hit and run. Her name is on the badge
the feds gave her, same as mine, and I’m sure she introduced herself at
one point, but it’s better for both of us if I don’t remember it. Makes
things easier when I don’t have a name to put to a face.

After the vision about my mom, I dedicated my life to oncology (knowing
which patients are going to die and when helps), despite the fact that I
can do nothing to change her fate. It wasn’t long before a former
colleague caught on, and from there it was only a matter of time until
the government figured me out and sent the CIA knocking on my door.
Funny, how that works out.

We were meant to rule together.

So do I.

You have five northern children.

You’re tall.  Still growing?

If he’s coming  this far north…

Of course they will  behead you as a deserter,

Let me give you  some advice, bastard.

You must be Robb.

I’m a Northman.

You want to hold it?

When we were seven and you jumped  off the cliffs at Casterly Rock,

I give him a queen  and he gives me an army.

Take me to your crypt.  I want to pay my respects.

When will they be married?
