Welcome to the next installment of The Dark Library. This week on the last TDL of 2009; we bring you one chapter each of The Key by Tamrend and Winds of the Kae Huron by Nephilim. Please enjoy and have a happy new year. Who knows what will come in the Fan fiction community in 2010. Keep checking back for more stories.

    Winds of the Kae Huron – Chapter 3: The Banquet Hall

      It had been a remarkably long time before Dimoak was noticed missing, all things considered. The storm had died overnight, and it was the next evening, over a dinner of rabbit stew in the modest banquet hall, when Drus asked where he was as he went to make a vegetarian plate for him.

      Kinemil had glanced around the table. “Dimoak?” he asked, worried. He stood.

      “He left,” M’avina answered quickly. She had considered waiting to see everyone’s reaction, but in light of all that had happened around them, she knew it would be far too cruel. “Last night, he left.”

    The Key – Chapter 9: Assassin

      Maeryn crept down steps worn smooth by centuries of feet passing over the stone. She paused at the bottom and peered down each of the three corridors that branched away, forward, and to the left and right. There was no one in sight. Letting out the breath she had been holding, she turned left and followed the long, low hallway to its end.

      She resented having to sneak about like this. The Horadrim had perhaps the best relationship with the Viz-Jaq?taar out of all of the other mage clans, but that didn?t stop individuals from being unnerved by her presence. Some simply ignored her, but some cringed as she passed and a few all but fled upon seeing her in the halls. Just the knowledge of her presence here was disruption enough. It had only taken a few days for word to get out that she was a mage slayer, probably the result of an overly curious servant cleaning her room. Despite the story Pallas had put about, that she was simply here for a long overdue inspection, rumors had begun to circulate that someone among the Horadrim?s inner circle was suspected of corruption and that Maeryn was here to deal with the problem. Rumors had a way of both reflecting and distorting the truth.

    Also a fan of the recent fan stories showed his thoughts of things.

    tamrend, after thoroughly enjoying The Mage Academy of Gea Kul that Flux posted, I hoped I would find another treasure within the Fan Fiction Forum. I began to read The Key and from day 1, I was transported into the lives of your characters with every page consumed! This has been an awesome story full of Diablo lore and creative fiction laid out in a way that keeps pulling me along with your characters. Will Kelsia truly fulfill her potential to be a mighty sorceress??? Fully against Seith’s beliefs? Will HE be the mage Garron imagined? Shael has a boatload of whoop-*** to unload on some slayers and I can’t wait for she and Loric to pummel these Hellspawn side-by-side and save what is left of the townspeople. Now you have thrown my beloved Necromancers into your brew…SWEEEET! Let’s not forget Maeryn! Will she once again find a bond with Pallas and pursue the evil that plagues the Horadrim? Will Kelsia and Shael’s path meet once again??? AAAAARRRGGGHHH!!!

    Heh heh heh!!! tamrend, I look forward to every page you create and hopefully one day publish. You truly have a gift! Thank you!

    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!
