The Journey was an important event that occured in the history of the Kingdom of Lucerne during the twilight days of the reign of Bill Lovie. The Journey started when the prince of Lucerne William Lovie decided that as the future king he needed to know the lands he was going to rule over. After travelling the Kingdom, and meeting with the Lords of the Kingdom he came to understand that much if not all of the damage that he saw was the result of his father's eratic, and downright dangerous leadership. With this in mind William Lovie would build an alliance with the Sindar Elves of High Forest, as well as Gondor and use this as a pretense to liberate both the Gondor city of Minus Ithil, and more importantly the Lucernian city of Tree Hill. The Journey would end with a confrontation between the King in Bill Lovie and Prince William Lovie, in which William would banish Bill Lovie and take the throne of Lucerne.

In the long term the Journey will be most remembered for being the catalist for the removal of Bill Lovie, as well as putting in place William Lovie, who would in the years of his early reign nearly single handedly rebuild the Kingdom of Lucerne. Along with these effects the Journey would also lead to the prolonged Lucerne Civil War between the forces of the Kingdom of Lucerne, and the forces of the True Sons of Lucerne led by the fallen prince Sean Lovie.

During the events of the Journey several of the most influencial relationships would become detailed and started in many respects. For William Lovie III. the meeting of William and his two lovers in Brooke, and Bella of which he would come to impregnate Brooke while in Tree Hill and propose to Bella earlier.

Background

William Lovie III.

Main Article : William Lovie III.

``A boy who wanted to be a man, he suffered great pain in Lucerne, and it was only the journey that brought him back.``
-Carlisle Cullen

For most of his life William Lovie had lived the life of a playboy only conserned with the discussion of politics and not actually interested in getting closer to the real thing due to not wanting to be around his father. This began to change when Bill Lovie begin pitting Sean Lovie against his brother William, and William out of jelousy wished to prove himself the greater prince beyond a shadow of a doubt. Another of the major changes was that when Alice Lovie was removed from the city, it created a hole in William that he didn't understand and because of this he was constantly searching for anwsers to why he was always so sad.

I would have done everything to have stopped him from leaving. Everything the Fade showed me led me to clearly understand that his departure on his little quest ended with my defeat. Sometimes I died. Some times I lived, but in the end I always lost if he left.
Bill Lovie

Bill Lovie had completely isolated himself in the capital by the time the Journey was first discussed by William, and with goal of fortifying the mountain and basically abandoning the inland to the Orcs he cared nothing for Forks, and Tree Hill never mind the other cities of the area

Prelude

Departure From Lucerne

Lucerne

Middle gate of Lucerne

It was the first time in many years that I had seen the outside of the Lucernian Mountains, and it felt so different. Like a feeling in the air everything felt tense out in the valley.
Edward Cullen

Andrew left the city of Lucerne with Edward, Jasper, Emmett, and a gaurd unit of 6 men led by Carlisle Cullen. When they arrived outside of the city they were met by Levan Martell her sisters and Ellia Snow of whom joined them with four more men from House Martell. The group headed towards the safety of the city of Forks on horseback.  As they passed Norburg they were met by Radlet Scarlet, Martin Steinmare and their accompanying four men of which further expanded out the group of those joining Andrew on his journey. On the ride their Andrew and Carlisle engaged in the first of what would become many heated arguments between the two on the journey. Andrew desired to know how it was that Bill his father was so reluctant to allow him to leave Lucerne. Carlisle berated him about being unwilling to have done something like this before, and that he wasn't mature enough to understand what he was going to find in the cities. The engaged in a long argument in which it became clear to Andrew that Carlisle was deeply aware of a number of important lies that were being told by his father, and that he had no intention of telling Andrew.

Carlisle Cullen Large
It was obvious to me that he was a liar. The only thing I wanted to know was whether he was just a really honorable liar, or the kind of liar that had to be dealt with immediatly.
Carlisle Cullen

Eventually when Andrew realized that Carlisle wasn't going to break his father's confidence he stopped talking to him and the four young men just socialized the rest of the ride to Forks. This silence between Carlisle and William didn't go unnoticed and Carlisle attempted heavily to reengage the young prince in conversation to no avail. Carlisle was stuck in a terrible place as he knew the scope of terrible things that Bill Lovie had done, and knew that the moment William arrived in Forks he was going to be told by Charlie Swan of the destruction of Tree Hill, and that alone would spark a quest of discovery which would only end with the uncovery that Bill was responsible for the violence. Carlisle would at this point realize that there was no hope of protecting his old master in the way he had been commanded too, and thus he begin to hope for the success of William so that Bill would be removed and he would be free from the chains that bound him. Travelling the path along the river, it was at this point that William would send Levan Martell and her party eastward towards Stormwind so that she could tell the Starke`s and Lannisters that he was moving, and that he would be making his way east after he had visited Forks and Charlie Swan. Along with Levan he also had Radlet, and Martin travel westward towards Hillsbrad where they would tell Lord Genn Greymane of their intentions and make him aware that they would attempt to travel to Hillsbrad after they had visited Stormwind.

Forks

Bella Swan7
"It was the first city I had ever seen outside of the surrounding area of Lucerne, and I don't know what I expected. From all the talk of my father I guess a burned down husk of a town screaming for my death wouldn't have suprised me at all."
-William Lovie III.

When the group arrived at Forks the four of them simply sat and looked down at a massive city that for most of their lives they had not even known had existed. Each of the group spent a moment describing what they knew of Forks, at least what they had heard, and the simple fact seemed clear that they had all been fed a lot of lies over their life to keep them from leaving Lucerne. William told them all a story about how his father had told him that in Forks he had once been forced to put down a rebellion that started after the city wanted to kill him, and his sister. Jasper told him that his grand-father as well as clearly taken the party line and had told him and his sister that the city was a haven of criminals and rebels. Emmett told them that Forks for his family was always too far away to worry about, and for that reason he had never been told anything about it causing the group to laugh at their backwards friend. At the urging of Carlisle they begin heading towards the town, and it wasn't five minutes after they had entered the main gatehouse that the very well known and expensive armor of the Lucernians was seen on them which caused the people to begin swarming the group in the hopes of finding out who they were.

Forks

West Side of Forks

"You could hear the roar of the crowd from everyone within the city, and like a tidle wave everyone within the city simply moved like they were automated towards the prince they had always dreamed of seeing"
-Charles Swan

Andrew didn't know how nearly mythical the Lovie's had become so he simply attempted to calm the crowd by telling them their prince and his best friends were on a journey to visit the Kingdom and that Forks was their first stop. If he didn't know before he knew after everyone in the crowd fell to their knees and remained deathly silent in their awe of the prince that they all hoped would become their King. Before five minutes the entire city learned of the coming of Andrew and it took Andrew begging the people to get up before they would finally stop kneeling to him. With the people back on their feet Andrew and the group waded through the crowd that all attempted to touch the armor of their beloved Prince. As the groups of people all attempted to touch the armor of the prince the gaurd of House Swan, and his bannerman arrived on the scene to clear out the crowds and allow the prince through, but it took some time before they were able to get moving again.

Bella Swan10

Bella Swan was a shell of herself when William arrived on The Journey

"His beauty was painful, but it was the way he allowed everyone to touch his armor, and never once did I sence that he hated this or wanted these people to just leave him alone."
-Bella Swan

As she scaled the stairs of the tower of Trelly she looked out of the tower and finally saw the reason for all the commotion, and in that moment she was overcome. While she would never admit it to anyone even to this day during that moment she felt a pull towards the golden haired boy that she had never felt in her entire life. Her mind wanted with everything in her to return to her father's side where this knight was obviously heading to but instead her mind won the battle and simply stared lovestruck at the beautiful golden knight. After five minutes the group had barely moved due to the crowd sheer size and Bella remained in the same spot as she had been. Her only movement came when Alice approached from behind her and she fell startled by her friends arrival. Falling down before getting back up the two watched the group finnally make it out of the crowd after the Forks gaurd, along with the House Swan honor gaurd moved in and created a barrier so that the prince could move through the thousands now lining the streets.

Bella Swan16

Chance Encounter

"Looking back the fear I used to have was just so palpibable. It was as if I would litterly die if I went to see this man that people were calling the most perfect thing they had ever seen. I should have been at his feet praying like the rest of them, but my fear kept me back. Considering how it ended I can't say I regret not going."
-Bella Swan

Bella escaped the questioning and badgering of Alice that she go to see the prince, and instead made her way to the blacksmith of her father's loyal banner house House Black to basicalyl hide out. She entered the balcksmith and admittedly spent the next few hours simply walking amongst the seemingly endless stable that surrounded the overall blacksmith. She was about to return home when she heard a commotion from the front of the blacksmith, and when she came out to see what it was she saw that the prince was in the next room talking to Arthur Black the brother of the House Black patriarch.

Bella swan breaking dawn by harra009-d2zbmca
"Seeing him like that was such a shocking thing, that I felt immobilized in awe. I had wanted to run away, and hide in a hole so deep that noone would ever find me. I had wanted to do anything to get away, but I couldn't move. The moment his eyes met mine, all the remainder of my resistence just flowed away"
-Bella Swan

As the two continued talking Bella found herself transixed on the prince infront of her. She was so nervous that she wanted to run away and hide in the stables for the rest of her life, but before her cowerdess could allow her to do this she was spotted by Arthur who brought her precense to the prince of Lucerne.When the two locked eyes Bella had to hold onto a railing to keep herself from falling, and while Andrew had a lot of experiance with women he couldn't bare to not touch this girl in a way he couldn't understand. Andrew thanked Arthur and Arthur quickly removed himself to the pain of Bella whose head was filled with crazy thoughts of love, and marriage. The two talked for hours and came to know eachother rather well, with both telling eachother things they hadn't told anyone elce before. This closeness was interupted by the fact that it was well past midnight and so he had to return to the tavern or Jasper was going to explode from worry. Andrew walked Bella back to Swan Keep before the two parted but made plans to meet the next day at the tavern.

Alice Lovie7

The Tavern Meeting

"So much happened in that small run down tavern, that whenever I return to Forks I feel like I have to return there. Had we of stayed at a different tavern I'm sure that eventually I would have found my sister again, but it would have been longer. It would have meant one more minute away from my sister, and that was too much."
-William Lovie III.

As the Lucernians arrived in Forks Alice joined her friend Rosalie Hale in her persuit of seeing the incoming group, but as they attempted to leave the tavern the owner slapped Alice in the face and forced her and Rosalie to return and not allowing them to see the group as they arrived. This physical abuse wasn't uncommon so Alice just moved about her business, and acted as if nothing had happened. Alice though felt a sort of connection to something in that group even though she had only seen the brief outlines while looking out the window, and that was more painful to her then any slap she would recieve. Sad about not seeing what was the news of the town she and Rosalie did their best to accept this and went about their work for the rest of the day as positvely as they possibly could. During the day they were shocked when the group entered their tavern and took up seats in the corner.

Jasper Hale5
"When I saw the gleaming armor of the prince's men I couldn't help but stand in awe of these men. So much was spoken of Lucerne, and since I had never been there I was left to my imaginations. They just seemed so polished, and downright perfect."
-Alice Lovie

After at first being overwhelmed by attention by the tavern dwellers they were spared further harassment when Rosalie yelled throughout the tavern that they were going to close if they didn't leave the Lucernians alone. Alice spent the rest of the night watching as the group of Lucernians spent time in the corner, and she made the arrangements when a man named Carlisle Cullen introduced himself and basically said that the group needed logdings for the night and they would prefer if they could simply take all the rooms in the tavern. As Alice moved about the business of moving their things to their rooms she came to be helped by a silent young man who introduced himself as Jasper Hale. As the two shook hands on Jasper's insistance they both felt a shock as if something inside them was kismat, and that they recegnized the feeling. They went about their work, but following the hand shake no more words were shared between the two. As Jasper returned to the table he returned to conversation with Emmett, and Edward where he revealed that he felt a connection with the young barmaid. Emmett was far to lost in his lust over the beautiful blond to pay attention to Jasper but Edward was completely listening and had never seen his friend with so much certainty in his eyes since before he had left. As they continued to talk Emmett simply got up from the table without a word and walked over to the counter where once their he begin talking to the blonde barmaid. Edward and Jasper were shocked that the extremely shy Emmett had been capable of something so obvious, and once again a member of the group stepped out of his comfort zone and did something they were not used to doing.

William Returns

Alice Lovie21
"Bella said that she was best friends with two of the girls that worked at the tavern, and when I asked how she a noble got to be friends with barmaids she just laughed and shrugged her shoulders. Her nervousness in that moment just made me love her all the more."
-William Lovie III.

The flirting between Rosalie and Emmet, and the conversation between Jasper, and Edward ended the moment the front entrance to the tavern opened and walking through the doors was William Lovie, and on his arm was Bella Swan. When Alice watched her normally dower friend walk in smiling while holding the arm of what she could only assume was the most handsome man in the kingdom she couldn't help but do a double take on the two. Rosalie was beyond happy to see the sadness that usually was on her friends face removed and replaced by one of pure ellation, and knew that this boy better be good to her or else. For the boys this was nothing new as Jasper and Andrew had girls on their arms all the time, but the way he held her hand was something they hand't seen before as usually it was a more physical connection that Andrew was after. The tavern was at this point basically at full copasity so it was difficult for William, and Bella to see where the group was. As he looked around the tavern for his friends so that they could meet Bella his eyes scanned a tiny brunette girl standing behind the table and for a moment he was completely lost in thought.

Alice Lovie Small1
"I didn't know what it was but when I caught a look at her it was a moment I cannot explain. I felt a sence of longing that I didn't know existed but it wasn't in a sexual way it was something elce. It was as if this was someone I hadn't seen in a long time and now I was getting a chance to see her again."
- William Lovie

Seeing Alice awoke something in William, and at first Bella watched him as he looked at Alice, and she felt nervous that she wasn't good enough but as if he felt her nervousness he tightened his grip on her hand and looked down at her smiling. The smile he gave her wiped away the fear she had, and brought her back to the happiness that she was feeling the moment before. Across the room at the bar Alice nearly dropped the jug of liquid that she was holding and stumbled her way back into the store room to calm herself down. At first she was horrified that she might be attracted to her best friends date, and thus she decided to hide herself away in the storeroom. As William held Bella's hand and walked towards his friends who he had finally spotted he spied the blonde sitting on Emmett's lap and smiled at his friend who appeared to be smitten. He locked eyes with Edward who gave him a knowing smile, and for the first time in a long time he returned Edwards smile, as he believed Edward was happy for him.

The Storeroom Meetings

Alice Lovie Large6
"I sat alone in the storeroom hiding in the corner behind a box. I wanted with everything in me to go back out there and talk to the boy that had sent electricity through my arm just through a touch. I wanted to know more about who he was, and whether he could ever like a girl like me. But the only real though that flew through my mind, was speaking and seeing the prince again."
-Alice Lovie

As the group talked and spent time together Rosalie, and Bella both wondered where Alice had gone too, and Jasper said that she was probably still busy like before. Bella got up from the table and went to see where she might be, and like always her noble stance meant that she was able to walk into the back where she found Alice sitting in the corner of the store room. Bella walked up to her, and sat down beside her and tried to find out what was wrong. Alice lied to Bella and told her she was nervous about seeing Jasper again because she thought she was having strong feelings for him and what was the point of getting involved since she was nothing but a barmaid. Bella looked her in the face and said she was so much more then that, and the group out there would never look at her as just a barmaid. She knew Bella was right but she wasn't ready to see the prince again so she told Bella to ask Jasper if he would come see her in the back room. Alice would hug Bella and tell her she loved her before Bella left to tell Jasper.

Bella Swan Large4
"I didn't want Jasper to leave and think I was unhappy or didn't like him, so I thought the only way to see him without involving the prince was to get him to come to me. I'm guessing this would be the first time he chased a girl into a storeroom in his life."
-Alice Lovie

Bella would return to the table, and say that Alice was in the back room because the tavern owner had forced her back there so not to bother the customers, and that she wanted to apoligize to Jasper in person. Jasper would immediatly go to the back to see her, and he found her now standing against the wall waiting for him. The two would talk, and eventually they would kiss against the wall before things got more heated, and they would make love. As Jasper and Alice were in the storeroom the group outside continued having a great time, but in the back of William's mind he continued to think of the brunette barmaid that he had seen at the front, but like Alice threw herself into Jasper, William threw himself more and more into Bella. The two continued to talk lovingly and when Rosalie, and Emmett left to go to her room William decided the time was right to take Bella home, and he said goodbye to Edward and left a goodbye for Jasper before holding Bella's hand and leaving with her.

Return

Alice Lovie Large3
"I had found my escape in Jasper's arms but even he wasn't enough to keep the constant thoughts of the prince out of my mind. I wanted nothing more then to just escape with him, but even after making love I still found myself thinking of him. I knew I had to go out and see him, and thus I took Jasper's hand and followed him out to the table."
-Alice Lovie

As Alice and Jasper finished they talked about things, and Alice frankly asked him where he saw this going, and Jasper who was trying to be a good guy after everything he had done in the past told her that he would like to see her again. Alice was skeptical because he lived in a different city, and was a completely different kind of person in terms of importance but looking into his eyes she believed him. This didn't take away from the fact that Alice couldn't get the prince out of her head, and thus when Jasper extended his hand to take her back outside she took his hand and prepared to once again see the prince. When they entered the hall again she noticed the table was barren except for Edward who sat alone at the table drinking his water. When they arrived they learned that William had left with Bella, and Emmett had left with Rosalie, and with this Edward said that he too was going to bed, and said goodnight. Alice in that moment knew she didn't want to be alone, and thus she asked Jasper to stay with her, and he immediatly agreed.

Emmett and Rosalie

See Also :Conversations between Rosalie and Emmett

Rosalie Hale4
Her beauty knocked me back for a moment. I was normally very shy to the point that the guys used to make fun of me for it, but looking at her I felt a sence of calm that I had never felt before.
Emmett McCarty

During the Journey Rosalie Hale was still working at the Tavern and she would be working their with her best friend Alice (of whome was silently Alice Lovie) and together they would watch as their other best friend Bella Swan would become enamored by the prince of Lucene. While this was going on, Rosalie found herself the target of the advances of one of the princes friends who introduced himself as Emmett McCarty. The got along very well as Emmett seemed truly interested in her in a way that was different then the other men that nearly constantly wanted access to her body but when it came to something emotional it was clear that they wanted nothing of her. As she resisted his advances at first she came to become confused by why he kept trying to learn more about her, and the reason why he would smile whenever she gave the tiniest hint of a smile. For whatever reason she felt a tinge of trust towards the man in front of her, and this led her to at the end of the night inviting him up to her room in the upper floor of the tavern. When they arrived in her room Rosalie was once again shocked when Emmett appeared to be completely struck by nerves so in a shocking moment for Emmett she slammed the door to her room shut and begin to cry.

Rosalie Hale5
"I didn't understand why he didn't just throw me down and have his way with me. Every man I had ever met I had pushed back away because I knew what they wanted and that had scared me half to death. But looking into his eyes I saw a kind of love that I hadn't known existed in this world, and that scared me even more."
-Rosalie Hale

Rosalie cried and grabbed his shoulders begging him to tell her why he was being nice to her. Did he want her body, or did he have more nefarious things in mind. She told him of all the other men who had tried, and how Emmett was the first man that she had truly allowed to see her, and thus she wanted to know what he wanted from her. As she continued to demand anwsers he couldn't find the words to explain anything so he just pulled her into his body for a hug. She pushed against him at first but slowly she gave into his hug, and eventually he laid her down on the bed and they lay together until she eventually fell asleep.

Leven in Stormwind

Leven Martell Red
I trusted William with my life, and it was the only reason that I would have ever travelled so far from anything I knew. His belief in me pushed me forward, and drove me to be better then I could ever have been without him.
Leven Martell

Leven alongside her sisters and Ellia Snow would join with a group of twelve Martell men at arms of whom was sent to join them on their trip to Stormwind. The group would arrive in Lole, and from there they travelled by boat to Stormwind. Arriving in Lannisport south of Stormwind they made the journey north to the city of Stormwind where there arrival was expected by House Starke who met Leven Martell and her group with Robb Starke of whom would be sent as the envoy for the house since Brandon, and Eddard Starke had travelled to the south in order to meet the Lannisters and try and get them to join with William Lovie III. and thus assist the young prince. Robb immediatly became the source of much interest for Leven`s sister Obella of whom would watch him very closely and he would do the same as he alongside his father`s vassals led them throughout Stormwind. Getting Leven a room in the Starke estate in Stormwind she and her sisters would get a good sleep in before their busy day the next day. Leven and her sisters would wake the next day and meet with Robb Starke again of whom told them that Eddard had promised the entire support of House Starke to the efforts of William Lovie.

Leven Martell Stormwind

Leven would meet with Eddard Starke one the second day, and would be assured of his undying loyalty to William Lovie III.

Carlisle had told me to expect stiff resistence to the idea of going behind the kings back. He hadn`t told me they hated the king without pause.
Leven Martell

On the second day of their stay in Stormwind it would be Eddard and Brandon Starke that arrived back in Stormwind. Eddard would meet with Leven alone, as it was made clear in letters from William that she was a completely trusted member of his forces. Eddard thus spoke openly to her in a way that they were unable to do in letters, and really let her know about the things that Bill Lovie had done and the level of hatred the people had for him.

End of Darkness Circle 2
Look at the world father. You were born into this land, and you have told me hundreds upon hundreds of times how much you used to love it. Look at everything you have done to it. You destroyed a city for no reason, killed hundreds of good men out of fear. Is this how you want to be remembered father. Is this the world you want to leave behind? I know you were a good person once. I have all the evidence laid out in front of me as to why you are the villain of this world, but I don't fully believe it. Don't end it all here, and be remembered as a monster..


"I wish nothing but the best for your friend, and the prince of the land in Lord William but his father isn't capable of leading anymore."

"So what are you suggesting?"

"I am suggesting Milady that prince William when he done in Forks should come to Stormwind and we shall do everything we can as a people to remove his father and place him on the throne." Picturing William on the throne was something I had done more times then I would ever admit to throughout my life, but hearing it out of the mouth of one of the most powerful men in Lucerne was something that I scarsley believed I had just heard.

"You understand I'v know the King for my entire life."

"I know you have seen him your entire life, but my lady what do you truly know of this man." I thought about it and I had eaten dinner down the table from him hundreds of times, and what little had spoken while kind to me had always been for the ears of William. It was no secret that he wasn't a great man, but to suggest he was a tyrant as Eddard had wasn't something I understood.

"I'm not his blood, and he places the ideals of his family...prince William above all things." The honorable Eddard Starke could barely control himself at my near mistaken use of family over William. Sadly noone even his most direhard supporter would call Bill a family man. He was devoted to Will, but to his family...I dont think so.

"I'm sorry milady but when you are forced to exclude the entirety of his family outside of the prince he is not a family oriented man. I know the king well from when we were children, and the man I knew I can say is gone. He used to dote on his sister Catherine you know." He looked at me clearly wanting that to sink in. I had heard him yelling at Willliam's aunt but I had never seen any sort of time between them that would have indicated anything more then hate." For years she was everything to Bill. Then he met Lisa Tyrell and everything in his life just got even brighter."

"He loved her back then?" The fact that it was shocking that Bill loved his wife was something that struck me as odd. I had never thought of it before today, and that as well struck me as strange. 

"He loved Lisa Tyrell like there was not another soul in the world. I was there at that tournament when he made her the Queen of Love and Beauty and I watched the two fall in love as they stared at eachother. It was pure love. But milady...lady Martell when he returned from Lyons he was changed."

"Changed how?" I knew the Battle of Lyons well. Thousands upon thousands of Lucernians had gone to war, and but a slimmer had returned. The destruction of the human alliance at the battle was legendary, but I had never heard William's father mention it once, so hearing Eddard say it was a defining moment in his life was shocking to me. 

"Things no longer made him laugh. Everything was dark and twisted through his eyes. He pushed aside everything that had mattered to him including Lady Tyrell." He looked out the window as if remembering some distant event that pained him.

"Are you alright Lord Starke?"

"I'm fine milady just coming to terms with the fact that my old friend is gone was a painful thing to do, and its no easier now."

"You mean you came to this conclusion long ago?"

"Yes back during the days leading up to the Plague he was lost in madness and shouting during a meeting of the Lords and I realized it."

"The Plague my Lord?" As he went to speak a knock on the door brought our attention there and left the question hanging. 

"You may enter." The door opened immediatly after and I saw Robb open the door. Behind him walking away was another Starke man I remember as Brandon Starke II. while accompanying him was my sister Obella of whom was most likely leaving Robbs side for the first time since we had arrived.

"Father there is a party of Lannisters entering the city who wish to meet as well with Lady Martell." Eddard nearly burst from his seat before coming around to my side of the table and grabbing my cloak from the hanger on the wall. 

"I am sorry Milady but we must cut our conversation short and meet with the Lannisters." He helped me up, and despite never needing the help I knew the reasons behind it, and I took his arm and pulled myself from the chair where he would place the cloak over my shoulders.

"I thought you believed it didn't go well speaking with Lord Tywin?"

"I guess the minds of people like the Lannisters are difficult to read for simple soldiers like me." He laughed as he said it before leading me out the door following behind Robb who led us through the winding hallways and out into the courtyard.

"Where are we to meet the Lannisters Ser Robb?"

"Meetings with the Lannisters are held in the High Keep." As he said High Keep I remembered from yesterday as we had made our way to the third teir of the city, and how high up it was. I wondered why two groups such as House Lannister, and House Starke would have ever thought it was a good idea to meet in a place so easily formed for throwing people off ledges in anger. Laughing to myself brought the attention of Robb of whom looked back and smiled to himself as if knowing I was laughing at some joke I told myself.

Walking along we were joined at the gate to the third tier by a young man dressed all in red armor, and a large Lion Emblem on his chest. It wasn't difficult to know he was a Lannister but Robb walked up to him and clasped his hand in what to me looked like friendship. The man smiled at Robb briefly exchanging words before the two laughed. The laughter of the two ended when me and Eddard reached them, and behind the young Lannister was approached by an older Lannister man with a massive Blond beard. 

"Lord Eddard Starke it has been a long time since I have seen you."

"It has Ser Stafford. What brings you and your nephew to the gates to meet us?" So the young man was the nephew of Ser Stafford Lannister. Thinking back to my class time that could mean it was Lucion, Lancel, or Tyrek Lannister. I doubted Lucion as he was known as Lame Lannister for his ugly appearance and slow brain, but Lancel or Tyrek were both possiblities.

Stafford Lannister stepped forwards staring at me before speaking "To meet with the beautful Lady Martell is more then enough reason to come here Lord Starke." He gave me a strange look as he said it, and I felt my arms instinctibly pull my cloak around me a little further. It was cold so the act would be seen as such, but it was meant for more then keeping the fall snow off me.

"From our last talks it didn't seem your brother was willing to make the trip."

"You must have mistaken. We left a few hours after you did, and we are more then happy to meet a representative of the true King of Lucerne in William Lovie third of his name." Well that was shocking, but if he had wanted to let it sink in he didn't wait long before he nearly immediatly turned around summoning the younger Lannister with a look to follow behind him and led us towards High Keep.

The Arrival of several Lannisters was shocking for everyone around, as Eddard had said the conversations hadn't indicated they would come. Something was changing in the air when the Starke's were willing to abandon the king, and the Lannisters were willing to do anything.
Leven Martell

As Leven talked with Eddard they were interupted by Robb Starke entering to alert his father that several Lannisters had arrived in the city to meet with Leven. Eddard would lead Leven, and her sister to the Lannisters who waited in the main keep where it was said Tywin, Stafford, and Tyrek Lannister had come. Tywin would join Eddard and Leven in meeting, and Tywin appeared to Leven to be nothing like the man she had heard legends of back in Lucerne as this man in front of her discussed wanting to assist the prince, and wanting to elimate the tyranny that his father had brought on the land. Eddard and Tywin would argue breifly over an event they called the Plague, but she knew nothing about it, so she made a note to find out about it later. Tywin did suggest that he wished to meet with the prince, as Eddard had and Leven knew her time in Stormwind was over and her time for returning to William was upon her.

Trouble on the Road

Robyn Snow

Sent by Lord Martell Robyn Snow assisted Elia Snow in gaurding the Martell sisters.

You had a different feeling about the land after you heard the words of the honorable Eddard Starke. This was a man who you just knew from hearing him that he spilled out honor, and yet he was telling his horrible tales you just didn`t want to be true.
Leven Martell

With the loyalty of House Starke assured and Eddard promicing to do his best for the rest of eastern Lucerne she would return to Lannistane and back to the boats which would take her directly to Forks. Leven and Dorea were onboard the boat when they left their sleeping sister Obella and went to the top deck. When they got to the top deck it was completely pitch black out, and the only light was the single flame burning beside the captian helming the wheel. Leven would approach the captain and find him with a knife in his neck and bleeding out all over the deck. Reaching for her sword she barely got it out before a dagger narrely missed her head and slammed into the pole behind her. Sliding to the deck she was forced to defend herself as a red masked man charged at her. Out of the corner of her eye she saw Dorea fighting against another man, and she could hear the sound of commotion as the rest of the boat clearly awoke from the fighting. Losing her fight to the red masked man she would finally kill him after he tripped on one of the bodies strewn about the deck, and she would slice his head from his body before he fell into the river (The attacker would later turn out to be Franzal Nighting after Rachel Nighting revealed one of her brothers had been killed by Leven and this was the only instance that makes sence). The crew then broke through the locked door keeping them below and the other man would jump into the river to escape, while the crew moved on and was able to reach Forks without anymore trouble.
