028 You only Hurt the Ones you Love

Everything was wrong. The world was wrong. Udonna clung to the nearest tree, waiting for everything to stop changing.

Clare was hovering around her, trying to understand what was wrong. Her gift wasn’t strong enough yet, her mother’s power not matured, and she couldn’t feel the evil all around them, the Darkness coming from the gates.

“Udonna, the colour!” Clare cried. Udonna closed her eyes, looking away; the colour was fading from everything, and behind them Rootcore was dying.

“They didn’t come,” she murmured.

“Udonna, please! What’s happening?”

“The Darkness is rising.” She let go of the tree, taking a couple of steps into the clearing. “The Legendary Ones haven’t come. The Master is rising, Clare.”

“A great day,” a new voice said from the far side of the clearing. Udonna spun, pushing Clare behind her.

“Who are you?” she demanded, trying uselessly to summon her magic.

“Your magic is gone, White Witch.”

“Magic is never gone,” she said defiantly.

“You’re right, it’s not gone.” He strode forward, catching her arm and pulling her forward. “It’s all ours now. All in the hands of the Master.”

“Let her go!” Clare hit at him; he freed one arm and shoved her aside. She flew across the clearing, crashing to the ground and not moving.

“Clare!” Udonna struggled but he didn’t let her go.

“The Master sent me to kill you,” he said conversationally. Udonna stilled, staring at him. “But there is no honour in defeating a powerless opponent.”

“Then let me go.” She twisted against him again.

“No. You are dangerous.” He considered her for a moment. “Stop fighting me, and I will leave the child here.”

Udonna glanced across at Clare. She hadn’t moved.

“Who are you?” she asked finally.

“Koragg. The Knight Wolf. Most loyal servant of the Master.” He drew his sword, looking pointedly at Clare.

“I will come,” Udonna said quickly. “Only let me make sure she’s not hurt.” Koragg didn’t move, and she added, “I can’t escape. I have no magic. Just let me see to her.”

Koragg considered her for another moment before letting go of her arm. Udonna pulled away, hurrying to kneel by Clare.

The girl was breathing and, though her forehead was bloody, it didn’t look serious. Udonna wiped it clean, taking a deep breath before rising to her feet.

“I’m ready, Koragg.”

Poor Claire and Udonna. Interesting how you got Udonna to lose her powers without the initial fight that took her wand. I mean, it certainly makes sense, and it's also very scary.

You've also got Koragg down perfectly here. (And the rest of them, obviously.)

Re: Ouch
Wow someone else reading and commenting! Brilliant! :D

Thank you! I'm always a little worried about characterisation, especially in AUs; they're gonna be a little different, obviously, but they have to be the same as well. And now I'm rambling. Sorry about that. :)

I liked Koragg. Even before Leanbow, I thought Koragg was interesting...there's very few villans who were as human as he was, and I thought his honour was a great hook for stories, so...

Re: Ouch
Actually, it's still me. I just follow where the reading table links take me. :)

No, I know where you're coming from there. *pokes her own AU* It's especially tricky when you have to take them from such an early point in canon where they've had little chance to grow into the characters we've seen all year. I think you're doing a good job on that.

Koragg was interesting, wasn't he? I mean, sure in hindsight, that humanity probably comes from the one small bit of himself that Leanbow was able to hang on to. But when you're watching the show as it happens, he's such an interesting character, being an honourable villain.
