    Summary

    Jaina Proudmoore is the most powerful mortal mage of Azeroth, and she is sick of every other Horde Warchief turning out to be a despot like clockwork. When Sylvanas Windrunner wins her mak'gora against Varok Saurfang, Jaina's patience comes to an end - and so does Sylvanas' reign.

    Sylvanas is spared execution so that she will not become a martyr to her loyalists and to Horde sovereignty, but she is demoted and placed under house arrest - and Jaina herself will be the banshee's watcher. Because if there is one other thing Jaina is sick of, it's the collapse of every community she tries to nurture, her seemingly poison touch. But this vigil over a single banshee seems like something she can manage without it wilting and crumbling in her hands.

    Cut off from her resources and forced to exercise what power she still has through intermediaries, Sylvanas spends her days mostly alone under Jaina's watch. She worked to protect the Forsaken against an evil that lurks beyond Death; she tried to save her people from eradication; she tried to draw out and crush their enemies. Now, unable to pursue these enemies real or imagined, what is left for her to become?

    Covers a divergent BFA and Shadowlands timeline.

    Summary

    “Show me what? Parlor tricks? No, my prince. I don't need a magistrix. I have a perfectly good one already. I need a ranger. I need someone who can shoot, track, and understand the forest. Parlor tricks don't protect our borders. They don't help me to keep the trolls at bay. I need an elf. I need someone who will be able to work with her sisters and at the very least, understand us.”

    Kael'thas opened his mouth to object, but another voice offered its own opinion instead.

    “Oh, I can shoot well enough,” the human rose from her seat as she offered...in perfect Thalassian. “And I do not think that me understanding you will be a problem.”

    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.

    Summary

    With how disastrous their relationship had been from the very start, Sylvanas was hardly shocked to discover Arthas had been cheating. At least he had good taste in mistresses.
