Chapter 17

Black Princess


Still featuring The Dust


- So Alana, where is your camel? 
- I left it here.




- If this camel is the same who brought me here, it should have went back to the tunnel. 




It doesn’t matter if I walk around naked or dressing this outfit. Bad things will happen anyway.




And I don’t care if someone kills me thinking I’m a Thalmor agent. I’m not anymore, but I wish I were. Oh look at me talking with myself. I’m going crazy.




Or am I already crazy? Maybe I am. If I wasn’t so selfish about Ruby I wouldn’t be here now.




- Dammit Elen, you tried to rape her and blamed her all your life. Where is she now? Is she still alive? 
-Shit. I ruined her life. I ruined my life!




- If she is still alive you should apologize her. 
- Yeah. I’m sorry Ruby. I’m sorry for being so selfish.




- Maybe I deserve all of this. Maybe I deserve to die alone in this desert.
- You don’t darling. Get up.




- Ruby, is that you? 
- We heard you screaming. 
- But how is that possible? 
- That’s a long history. But there’s no time to tell now. Let’s go away from this desert.






- Look at her. 




... She is so vunerable now. So older…




- What? Don’t listen to her. She is your only chance to leave this desert.




- Shut up. Both of you. Leave me in peace. 




… Two mirages are all I don’t need now.




- Finally we met again after all these years.




… Where is Leda? 
- I can take you to her. 
- Who are you? 
- Camila. I’ve been doing some dirt jobs for that dragon, but I’m tired. What about you?




- I’m Queen Emma and this is my ship that was stolen twenty years ago. 
- Well, I see we have a little bit in common.




- Now tell me where is she? 
- Inside a cave in an archipelago. It will take two weeks if we leave now. 
- How do I know I can trust you? 
- I need to come back to rescue someone who was kidnapped by her orders. 
- I won’t be coming back to Tamriel and I’ll take my ship back to my land. 
- Fine.






- No discretion is needed. We know each other well enough to know what happens next.




- What do you want? 
- The death of Morgana. 
- I can’t do it alone. 
- What about your sisters? 
- There are no sisters, it’s just me. 
- Really? 
- It was easy to get to you. Your crush on that peculiar woman. 
- My weakness. I can help you with two or three centurions. I didn’t find more of them and I don’t have the necessary equipment to build from scratch.




- Even with that, it’s not enough to get to Morgana. 
- But we can scare her. 
- We have only one chance to get to her. 
- What do you suggest? 
- Wait a friend come back from the desert. I hope she found who she was expecting to find. 
- And who this person is? 
- The dragonborn.




- The dragonborn? Isn’t the last one in Sovngard? 
- If it’s truth, then we can’t find against an army of falmers. 
- Or we can build our army of animunculi. I have three centurions and about ten spheres in my storeroom. We could go down Mzulft and get more. 
- I’m an assassin. I work on shadows. And I’m not crazy enough to fight against a machine. 
- I teach you how to turn them off before they can even detect you.




- It’s safe now. 
- I’m going to sleep




- Ruby, you got so older. 
- What did you expect? 25 years passed. And you look like 30. 
- I don’t eat meat, you know. 
- So it’s just what you eat? 
- Maybe. What happened to you these years? 
- Well, after your desperate need to have sex with me, I freaked out. You knew that I hated my body that way. 
- That way you mean you no longer have that?




- If you want to know if I’m a normal woman like you, yes. I have a pussy and periods every month, at least I had until last year. 
- But you didn’t come back to Skyrim. 
- The price I had to pay. 
- What is it? 
- To have a child and give it to someone else. They didn’t let me see her even after birth. All I know is she is 23 now. 
- It seems cruel. 
- It is. I don’t regret the decisions I made but that. 
- It wasn’t under your control.




- Yes, it wasn’t, but it is now, since I’m the oldest witch of the eight. 
- The eight… The coven? 
- Yes, the coven of the eight. 
- Wow, I wouldn’t have enough courage. 
- I made was necessary to cure that pain. I regret not raising that child but I’m proud of who I am now. 
- I’m sorry if I blamed you or spent years planning to kill you. I know where your daughter is. I kidnapped her.




- You what? Are you mad? 
- I think I am. Dammit I’m a kind of psycho. 
- Where is she now? 
- Somewhere even I don’t know how to reach. 
- I should left you to die in the desert. 
- I know and I deserve. 
- For sure.




Morgana is very well protected. It’s not smart to get to her now. I should find that crazy sister first. I hope she don’t be surprised to see me, since she didn’t honored her contract to kill me.

Yeah but Elen's mirages were funny, and the whole chapter's aesthetics were well managed. And now that we've got the cast down, we can finally enjoy the story as well. :classic_biggrin: The « aging » thing gives more depth to it btw, even though the character's faces do not seem affected by it. :classic_smile:

Elen is vegan, so she can reach 80 looking as if she's 40.


Younger (25) and elder (50) Ruby
