Title: no one's got it all
Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire
Subject: Olenna & Margaery Tyrell
Notes: Made for [ profile] waywardmixes's twelfth challenge: family. I'm very fond of the Tyrells because that's where I was sorted at [ profile] westerosorting and because my housemates are awesome, so I had to do someone from this family. Plus there aren't many mixes about grandmothers and granddaughters. The focus is on Olenna and Margaery scheming for power, but I also wanted to show their private side, and Margaery's insecurities that she must hide while she plays the game of thrones. Spoilers for the first three books.

A Song of Ice and Fire is a series of epic fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin. One of the main plotlines involves several noble houses fighting for power and trying to conquer the Iron Throne. The Tyrells are one such family, currently led by Lord Mace Tyrell. Their motto is "Growing Strong".
Olenna Tyrell (born Redwyne) is Mace's mother. Despite her old age she's very cunning, and she's the one behind most of the Tyrell schemes since she believes her son to be an oaf. Her sharp tongue has earned her the nickname "The Queen of Thorns".
Margaery Tyrell is Mace's daughter. She's young but very shrewd and politically savvy, thanks to her grandmother's teaching. Her family has so far managed to marry her to three kings and poison one, all the while claiming that she's still a virgin.

Speak Easy (Honor Society)

Hero (Regina Spektor)
Power to the people
We don't want it
We want pleasure

Oh No! (Marina & The Diamonds)
Don't do love, don't do friends
I'm only after success
Don't need a relationship
I'll never soften my grip

Dangerous And Sweet (Lenka)
Yeah it's dangerous and sweet
Don't you know it's dangerous and it's sweet?
Cut us and we bleed

Young Blood (The Naked And Famous)
Can't help myself but count the flaws
Claw my way out through these walls
One temporary escape

Gimme Sympathy (Metric)
Got no time to take a picture
I'll remember someday
All the chances we took

This Woman's Work (Kate Bush)
I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left
I should be crying but I just can't let it show

After The Storm (Mumford & Sons)
You must know life to see decay
But I won't rot, I won't rot
Not this mind and not this heart
