Daloki – Part 7: Hushabye (1)

(What follows is a blog written by Elexin and Daloki, originally published on Rolepages.com.)

How had he allowed this to go on so long? His mind searched and searched for another way, any way to escape the inevitable that lay before him. It was his fault: she was not to blame for what she became, and all the pain and sorrow she had inflicted were actually blights on his fragile soul.  His mind went back to their first meeting. He actually had thought she was an arrogant bitch, but something about her, something familiar had drawn his attention back to her. Asmo’s intervention didn’t help matters, along with his own tenuous grip on reality, it had spelled trouble from the start, BUT – something was there.

Daloki – Part 3: Elexin

GuiltyIn the end, winning the war against the Slayers had nothing to do with Daloki: she was too ill after being rescued to do much of anything. She was also wracked with guilt for having betrayed her friends and their cause. The fighting went on without her.

Then the Cheshire Cat Tavern and surrounding area suddenly vanished, along with everybody in it. The Slayers’ plan to transport them all into a prison went wildly askew, and Dal and the others found themselves on the desert planet called Bahari. It took them a good month to solve Bahari’s mysteries and get back to Worlds’ Crossing. Continue reading
