The Dark Library #7

Welcome to the seventh instalment of The Dark Library. This time we bring you Tamrend himself; the author of the long running fan fiction The Key we have been presenting in the last few months (except for last week’s “Flux Special”). He recently added some personal insight to the wiki articles, and we strongly recommend you to read it. Here is a snippet:

    I started writing The Key toward the end of 2003. It was, quite literally, a challenge to myself. Many times before, I had started writing a story, only to stop a few pages in, unhappy with what I had written. With this story, I was attempting to break that barrier that I kept running up against. Making it fanfiction helped with that. Since it could not be published, there was no pressure to make it perfect. I deliberately refrained from editing anything until I had finished an entire chapter. The downside to that is that often mistakes will slip through.

Check out the rest of his comments and more on his wiki page: DiabloWikiTamrend.

In addition to this short biography of Tamrend, we also bring you the eighth chapter of his fan fiction novel: The Key: Chapter 8: Brimestone

    The three of them worked together to lower Marius to the ground. By the ruddy, pre-dawn light, Kelsia could see that most of the scratches that had lined his face last night had healed, but he mumbled incoherently and his eyes flitted about wildly beneath the lids. Bits of vomit clung to the edges of his mouth. Seith listened to his heart and held open each of his eyes to peer at them in turn.

    ?How is he?? Kelsia asked.

    ?He suffered a blow to the head. It didn?t break the skull, but he?s only now regaining consciousness. The healing potion I gave him has helped with that. Right now I?m more concerned about this arm.? Seith repositioned the limb carefully across Marius? chest. ?If the ends of the bone are not set, it will heal poorly. The potion works against us, I fear. I?m going to try to reset the bone.? He gripped Marius? arm in both hands. ?You?d both better hold him down. We need to keep this arm still. He?s confused but I?m sure he?ll feel this.?

Next week we will bring you the first chapters of Winds of the Kae Huron by Nephilim in the same conveniently posted bitesize format. If you have made fan fiction that has not yet been posted in the Diablo fan fiction forum, or just got inspired to do so, head over there and post your material, or ask questions to other fan writers regarding lore, writing style or other input. See you next week!
