I did know some things of this era, the politics, the people, their dress, even some of their customs and colloquialisms were familiar. But it was all second hand knowledge, aquired from books, museums, paintings. It was like landed on an alien world you had only glimpsed through a telescope.
Homeland AU: the Bodyguard
Carrie Mathison is a young, ambitious and highly-ranked politician. Peter Quinn is her loyal bodyguard. While being highly attracted to Carrie and harboring strong feelings , he always keeps his distance. Because who is he if not goddamn professional. But all his professionalism has gone to shit after Carrie was almost killed.
The Freys slashed her throat from ear to ear. When we found her by the river she was three days dead. Harwin begged me to give her the kiss of life, but it had been too long. I would not do it, so Lord Beric put his lips to hers instead, and the flame of life passed from him to her. And… she rose. May the Lord of Light protect us. She rose.
