Black Coral Chapter 19: Grief
Solavellan, Mermaid AU. Ongoing.
There are two elves sitting on a fence next to the road, looking out over Crestwood Bay.
This would not normally give either of the Grey Wardens pause; the spot would, under normal circumstances, offer a pretty view over the sparkling water of the bay and the sprawling floodwall at its mouth, with a gentle sea breeze to keep them from growing too warm under the summer sun.
It is, however, the middle of the Maker-forsaken night, with rain falling like buckets from the sky, and, perhaps most importantly, there are thrice-damned undead crawling out of the water.
