    Summary

    Thoughts were foggy for the first few-- how long even was it? Weeks? Mere days? It all rolled together into a confusing mess in the Reader's mind. Starvation, dehydration, and other such suffering weren't known to do wonders for the mind. So of course, in the fog of near-death, the first friendly face, one who fed and sheltered and cared for them, would resemble a cherished friend from long ago. The Reader brushed the thought aside, focusing on survival, on the sound of Hedwyn's voice.

    Summary

    “Volfred?”

    “Yes?” he asks, not looking up.

    “Will you write my final words?”

    His pen stills, as does Pamitha's attending to her hair.

    “...When the time comes, and only if you wish it.”

    “It has, and I do.”

    Summary

    The lightning flared — and, for just a moment, the figure was illuminated in stark white light.
    It was Oralech. It had to be. It could be nobody else.

     An encounter on the seas of the Deathless Tempest leads to a confrontation within the Nightwings' blackwagon. Oralech has a message for his former allies.

    Summary

    What was the worst that could happen?

    The door opening to reveal none other than Pamitha answered her question immediately.

    Pamitha looked at her.

    She looked at Pamitha.

    She would kill Oralech for this.

    [Pamitha and Jodariel are injured, but perhaps together they'll find a way to heal.]

    Summary

    You can feel vibrations at the edge of your awareness, a faint distracting ever-present hum; but the Crystal doesn’t call for you. You cannot help whistling tunelessly under your breath as you steer the blackwagon, an old nervous habit, but you keep your eyes on the horizon and leave her be.
    She’ll call when she needs you. If she needs you. If you can even be of assistance with...whatever is happening.
    Still, you cannot shake your sense that something is badly wrong. 

    (The Reader is about to face a difficult decision.)

    Summary

    The thought of rescue is too tantalizing for the Nightwings to ignore. Though the Downside remains a dark and painful memory they set out to seek a path that even the Scribes failed to find; a way to set free their friends from exile.
