    Summary

    Haunted by the ghosts of her father and the love she herself condemned, Jaina throws every ounce of energy into making Theramore prosper. Yet at night she lies awake, wondering about what could have been. Until one day a strange courier arrives, and she suddenly finds herself presented a (rather strained) second chance.

    Sylvanas is trapped in a delicate situation; having not killed Garithos, she is now in a failing power struggle with the living who want to reclaim Lordaeron. Seeing no safe outcome for her people, she begins to send envoys out to the Alliance, only for all of them to be killed on sight.

    Desperate and furious, she reaches out to a fledgling state on little more than a whim. She prays her undead heart will bare yet another blow; seeing Jaina Proudmoore, alive and well.

    But sometimes bodyguards can get too close.

    Summary

    Branded a traitor and banished from the Alliance, the Lady of Theramore is left with only one place to turn.

    If only it were as simple as declaring allegiance. Between bitter grudges, culture clash, violent dissent, and... *inconvenient* feelings, Jaina and Thrall have their work cut out for them.

    Part one of seven.

    Summary

    HOO BOY.

    Okay, this fic developed from a Discord prompt (full prompt in the fic notes) about the idea of an illness sweeping Azeroth where only the Forsaken are immune and those closely connected to magic are at least partially resistant. I took a lot of liberties with the prompt, but I had fun with it overall. The fic is set during Cataclysm before Theramore's fall and features Sylvanas and her dark rangers, along with Garrosh and Faranell, journeying to the Isle of Theramore to discuss with Varian and Jaina the possibility of the Forsaken lending their aid to not only Horde, but Alliance as well, while a cure is researched.

    The story is very heavily Sylvaina, with the illness and the response to it playing a relatively important role.

    I am garbage at summaries, but this is really just Sylvaina with an Azerothian COVID-19 backdrop, enjoy!
