“Lord Whitehill paid my father a visit at Rillwater Crossing… He told my father Gryff had “subdued” you, and– … I am to marry Gryff Whitehill.

Ludd threatened my family… told my father if he refused we’d be slaughtered along with you.”

This brief scene was something I worked on during my downtime, taking a break from the main AU plotline. This is Ludd’s visit to Rillwater Crossing, where he convinces Lord Glenmore to betroth Elaena to Gryff Whitehill. Though he is persuaded by his son Namond that it will buy them time, Lord Glenmore’s actions are seen as cowardly by Arthur and Elaena who go and seek Rodrik Forrester’s help in getting rid of Gryff.
