Love and death and war and Gods and blood and magic and dancing and rest and revenge and kings and fate.
Don't worry, within these three stories you'll know yourself,
And I will put you back together again.


86. A Change in Pace

My sisters.  They are fine and they are fair, but they are idiots, and you’ll have to forgive them for it.  As much as I love them, here is the story of your heroes.

    My name is Morta, and most of you hate me, spit on my resting place and call me freak, unnatural.

    When you meet me, say that again.  I beg of you.

    But I am not angry.  Not by nature, I am not skeletal, I do not seek my powers, I do not hurt where it is avoided.  I simply am, and no matter how much hate you mortals throw at me, I will never be anything more or less than this.  Push me away with your hexes and medicine and whatever else.  I’ll know you.  Your chord sits at my feet, don’t forget that.  You people think that you’re so much bigger than us, and don’t let my sisters guide that head of yours.  You are no smaller than a razor’s edge.  But to credit you - I think that you are sharper.  I know you are, I know you well, don’t I?  And you know me.

    This is the story of after, I specialise in that.

    This is the story of your heroes after they tasted my blood, and came back for more.  This is the story of death, and hope.

    They are connected, don’t doubt that.

    Death is short, I will keep in that fashion.  I also will not apologies.  I was not made to regret what I have to be, for if I didn’t exist, then you’d have nothing to power through, you’d have nothing to run from.  Don’t you remember?  Death means that you’re still living, pain means that you’re alive.  I am a friend, and hate me for it, but I love you as my sisters do, and I know that they saw love and love back - but you don’t have to.  This world is so small, why waste something as rare as love on a being like me?

    Here is how the end starts.
