SanSan Fandreaming again

In my feverish dreams yesterday I managed to come up with a more or less complete SanSan story. That was nice to see it in pictures and it helped to recover. This was how the story went:
Joffrey is killed (hey, he always dies soon in my stories *grin*), and Sandor is supposed to be punished because he couldn't keep his king safe. At the same time, Cersei detests Sansa so much that she thinks she can be guarded elsewhere, too - so they're both thrown out of the Red Keep and sent to a humble - though in comparison acceptable - house in Flea Bottom. Now, Sansa still can't flee King's Landing, because all the guards know her face, but in Flea Bottom the queen's control isn't half as intense as in the Red Keep.
At first, Sansa - always the proper lady - is shocked by the living conditions in Flea Bottom. Then, however, she pulls herself together, starts earning some money with her embroidery, and at the same time she starts to help the poor people in Flea Bottom, much to Sandor's distaste. Soon, she teaches children in rags, and all kinds of people come to her, seeking her aid and good advice. The criminal rivaling bands establish a new, unwritten rule in the code of honour: no bloodshed around the "Queen of the Fleas".
Sansa and Sandor also fall in love, and after a while she is pregnant, so they marry in front of the septon of the quarter, a shabby drunkard who would even "marry a goat and a cheese" for the right amount of money.
In the Red Keep they finally notice they've made a big mistake and plan to dispose themselves of Sansa, but they have to realise that killing her would be too dangerous, because it would make her a martyr and mark the beginning of a revolution far worse than the bread riots.
