Alistair and Aria, Part 3

“We didn’t grow up together,” Aria explained as she practiced her swordsmanship with Valtteri, eldest son of the prince of the Southern Arm. “I only saw him a few times when I was a child, but he was always kind to me. The day my parents died, he asked if I trusted him, and I…

Fantasy Friday: Elantris, Chapter 3

Previously on Elantris: Sarene was engaged to Raoden, but now they’re married because he died. Yeah, their religion is weird. She’s living in Arelon now and is very suspicious of the circumstances surrounding Raoden’s death. Oh my god, you guys. We get to meet my favorite character today. Motherfuckin’ HRATHEN! Chapter 3: Hrathen joins us…

Alistair and Aria, Part 2

Buried in a disused study somewhere in Suvid, a scroll existed in broken, childish handwriting granting Alistair the authority to act as regent to Queen Aria of House Kolenikova until she turned eighteen. He didn’t like to think of that day—the morning he’d killed her parents in self defense, though with a lingering feeling of…

Alistair and Aria, Part 1

Aria dreamed of that day often—the fateful day she became queen at eight years old—though she always blocked a few details out. She never saw her parent’s bodies again, nor did she see the blood or remember the fright. Often she would just skip over it, as if her subconscious mind recognized that she was…

Fantasy Friday: Elantris, Chapter 2

Previously on Elantris: a prince is cursed, a dead man named Galladon is too perky, and gross things are gross.

Blood and Water

Heavy doors behind her shut with an ominous thump. Aria relied on her captors to guide her across the throne room, the marble floor cold through the worn leather of her boots. The canvas sack on her head was decidedly coarse, and the ropes binding her hands caked with mud. She came to a stop…
