Re: Not just a river in the desert

Rilasuka knocked the huge axe aside and forced herself up from the ground, spinning around to put her body between the incoming spike of ice and Mirathendia. "Shoulders!" Tweezle stared helplessly as the orc fell to her knees. Rilasuka's shoulder was fash-frozen and the glacial shard had opened up a...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Mirathendia stood with her axe at the hunter's neck. The blade hummed and sang the way the metal in the saronite pits did. After so many blows, it hungered for a bite of flesh, for a taste of blood, and it was being denied. So close, so very close, the orc's pulse right there . Mirathendia looked do...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Tweezle was up to her pointy ears in IOUs by the time the airship angled toward Icecrown Citadel. "They start shootin' and we're leavin’." "Yeah, sure." Tweezle pointed at an empty balcony. "Drop us off there." The small airship nestled up against the balcony. "Good luck, boss." Tweezle made a face ...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Mirathendia strode into the high-ceilinged hall, several rows of undead warriors behind her. She was changed, and yet Rilasuka would know her anywhere. The shape of her mouth, the curve of her jaw. The way she stood, grounded and yet ready to spring. Narath growled, but remained at Rilasuka's side. ...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Tweezle looked over the list she'd scribbled and bit back the resentment that she hadn't been able to science her way to a solution. She was an engineer, an alchemist, a mage. And it stung to admit that she hadn't been able to cut it as a detective. Her hearthstone hummed at the other side of the wo...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

There is work yet to do. The words came like a nightmare, cut into the silence that surrounded her. Mirathendia watched herself from far away, emptied of Light and hollowed out to be a vessel for something else. She watched herself walk past ghoulish workers, pause and give a silent order to one, a...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Rilasuka looked up at the imposing citadel. She'd not been to Northrend after she left Draenor with Mirathendia. She'd not seen Icecrown. A shiver went through her that was from more than the frosted air caught in the chasm below and howling a warning. The rogue seemed amused. "Just a small fortress...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

"Is this guilt? Like, is this what guilt feels like?" Tweezle looked at MechaBun 5000. The small mechanical rabbit cocked its head. "I don't particularly like it." Mechabun's nose-button twitched. Tweezle took a deep breath. "And there's no reason to be feeling it now. None. Absolutely not." Mirathe...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Talonblade looked through the flames of the cooking fire. The orc was worn down by the poison, it showed in her color, in the way her eyes watered. "You're wondering whether I'm strong enough to kill you." The orc met Talonblade's gaze. The fire there wasn't just a reflection. Keeping the orc in the...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Mirathendia couldn't feel the cold as the wind tore through the canyon. Shahadra's arms were tight around Mirathendia's waist and she begged and pleaded, then yelled and raged until she was incoherent and her voice became Ghuun's chaotic whispers and her arms were tendrils of corruption and the air ...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

A massive raven swooped over the top of Valiance Keep, flew out over the water, then circled over the ridge where Rilasuka looked down at the Alliance. Narath growled low and Rilasuka took up her bow, nocked an arrow, followed the bird with it as it skimmed near the ground a distance away claws exte...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

The rogue walked into the keep openly, her SI:7 insignia displayed to stop questions. The general looked up when she rapped her knuckles on his desk in the command room. His gaze flicked to the SI:7 insignia and he pursed his lips. "What does SI:7 need all the way out here?" "I need an arcane commun...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Fontayne drew his mount up and Whisper of Calm slowed, then stopped. The landscape was covered in shadow and Mirathendia couldn't decide if twilight had come already, or if it was the shadows of Icecrown throwing everything into darkness. Shadows don't move like that, Mira. Mirathendia ignored her s...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Ash landed at the farm outside of Valiance Keep. The rogue ruffled her fingers through his neckfeathers, then flagged down the boy running in the corn. "You know if there’s any carrion about?" The boy blinked. "Some dead stags off that way." He pointed behind him. "Don't know what got 'em." Ash let ...

Re: Not just a river in the desert

Rilasuka crouched in the shade of a tree near what appeared to be a goblin's abode. She'd taken to tracking Mira on the days when she seemed least herself since that night in the stable. The Sin'dorei who had been so strong, so confident, so certain of herself on Draenor had changed dramatically tha...
