    Summary

    No one walks the Valley of the Dead, the vast and empty desert beyond the plains. No one knows what lies beyond it, or if anything lives under its merciless sun. Some whisper of a god who resides in the forgotten ruins, an Arbiter who weighs the sins of man. Others speak of a serpent that drags the wicked down below the scorching sands. All stories converge on the fact that those who enter, never return.
    It is here that two young men awake, chained together by their ankles, and with no memory of their past save for their names. As they attempt to cross the lonely desert, they try to piece together the history of the empty world they find themselves in, as well as who they really are.

    Each step brings them closer to an increasingly ominous truth. Each step brings further clarity that their companion is not who they believed them to be.

    And both are promised freedom from the endless wasteland and the truth of their past, on the condition that they kill the other.

    A story about friendship and retribution.

    Bookmark Notes:

    i was moved a) morally, that redemption is complex and unforgiving, that even the worst people can change for the better simply if they want to while never letting go of the crimes they've comitted, and b) to tears, because the fic's climax made me cry
