The Ballad of Adler Young, Canto 2.5
RE: The Ballad of Adler Young, Canto 2.5
>Adler: Think for a minute, the dark thoughts come back. For the first time, all the cards are in your hands. You have power right now. While exploiting a loophole to trick your former enemies into serving you is a fine and elfly thing to do, that just isn't good enough. These trees actively tried to prevent you from avenging your brother's death, that makes them just as bad as the people who killed him. In your traumatized and emotional state of mind, you're beginning to conflate who did what all into one lump. The people of Albric Tor died because your brother died, the empire collapsed because your brother died, everything bad that's happened to you in your entire life happened because your brother died, no matter how illogical it is. Everyone who has hindered you or made an enemy of themselves played a part in killing your brother, even the people who were never involved or stood to loose everything if he died. The Duchess, The Sisterhood, Felf, The Queen, Glenholm Webb, The Vulpitanians, Avogadro, Theronmyathus, that stoned buck, THEY KILLED YOUR BROTHER! They all killed him. A tidal wave of blood and vengeance will wash over all of Faerie. You'll burn Vulpitania and the Antglade to the ground. Everyone involved in your brother's death, real or imagined, will be strung up, crucified, dangling on the sides of every road in the empire as a monument. No forgiveness, no redemption, and no mercy. You'll start with these trees. It's not enough to punish and humiliate them, you're going to break their spirit. Magic up a pen and paper and have Rowan read it out loud. A declaration that will not just pledge them to your service, but actively strip them of all freedom and enslave them.
>Rowan: You're fine with this, they're just trees.
>Sam & Estvan: Beg Adler to reconsider. This goes beyond Unseelie. It's evil.
>Trees: Beg for mercy.
>Adler: When the deed is done, laugh maniacally. It doesn't matter what anyone says, this is the first time in forever you've felt this good. Revenge is sweet.
>Rowan: Yep. Your dad laughs like that too.
>Sam & Estvan: Stare in horror and disbelief. He's so far gone. Is there any hope for him at all...
