Welcome to the next installment of The Dark Library. This week we explore an old fan fiction that was posted back in 2004 and completed in 2006 and that was called the Winds of the Kae Huron. Set after the fall of Baal at the end of the Diablo II Expansion. Winds sets a stage of what events transpired and many characters you knew in Act 5 you meet again with others. Here’s a snippet of the first two chapters.

    Chapter 1: Last Man

      The scream that shook the mountains.

      M’avina had been inside of Malah’s infirmary, at the time.

      She wasn’t as bad off as many of the others. Many from before they had arrived, with grievous wounds they weren’t expected to recover from. It had been an injury of folly that had landed M’avina here. She had been bringing up the rear of a war party with ranged support and hadn’t seen the overseer clumsily climbing the rocks up towards her. It lashed its whip around her ankle and yanked her off her perch, breaking her leg and fracturing her shoulder in the fall. Now, she had to rest, and allow Malah’s soothing medicines to do their work.

    Chapter 2: Parting Ways

      Malah was a very talented woman. She would always swear up and down that her subtle manipulations of magical energies were terribly inadequate, but what she did know, she knew very, very well. M’avina was admittedly not very refined in the department of healing. She knew the basics, but she had no aptitude for how a bone was so easily mended with the right herbs and wraps from Malah’s store of exotic plants she bought from the traveling merchants. With the state of crisis, though, no caravans had been able to make it to the Highlands, and so Malah’s supplies had begun to run dangerously dry. Hopefully, though, they would no longer be in such demand.

      It was only a week before M’avina was on her feet again with little more than a limp. When she tried to express how miraculous it seemed to her to Malah, though, she shrugged it off with: “Well, at my age, I’ve got to be good at something.”

    Next week we will bring you more from the fan fiction community 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!
