Post Just in Time for Halloween (Whispers)

And hopefully this will stop Slowpoke from spamming the R&R thread, at least for a time.



As difficult as it was for him to admit it, Illidan Stormrage was losing his mind.

Give in.

Give in.

Give in.

You know what you have to do.

It's there.

It's there.

It's there.

It's there.


He hissed. Even sleeping didn't make them lay quiet anymore. Nothing did. They came to him in his dreams now, they came to him in the ever-consuming darkness, and they came to him even when the Wardens decided to pay him a visit.

Can you see it?

Can you see it?

The world turns and moves and you stay long forgotten.

The answer is different now, but this is now, too.

Give in.

Kill them.

Kill them all.


At first he thought it was Maiev making the whispers, driving him to insanity. The way she used to stand silently in front of his cell, saying nothing but still taunting him with her freedom to walk outside of this wretched hole, was a favorite hobby of hers. In fact, the last thing he remembered her saying to him was that she likened him to a wild animal, trapped and helpless. It infuriated Illidan all the more, because she was right.

No, you're a monster.

Your sight has forever changed to reflect it.

The world is now.

The world is then.

There's something they're keeping from you.

Or maybe they will keep it from you.

It's both.

Give in.


Illidan should have done something different then, with Malfurion and Tyrande working with him instead of siding against him, and leaving his fate in the hands of the ever-vengeful Maiev Shadowsong, her wardens, her hatred, her umbra crescent, her...

He would get out of here. He would be free soon enough, and he would kill Maiev. And Sargeras would have nowhere to run.

Can you see now (SEE SEE SEE)?

How did the world see him? Was it worse than the Wardens, he thought to himself, or was there mercy to be found outside? And why was it him who was locked in this cage when it was his brother who would choose to deny their people the birthright that was the Well of Eternity? Why couldn't he see that Illidan was saving their people?

His fury turned away from Maiev and to his brother now. His memories, his past, his guilt. And now his brother.

Give in.

Give in.

They will die.

No, you will die, and you will be forgotten.

You are a monster.

Massacre them, you have to.

See?

Massacre both of them.

They can't see either.


Illidan looked up from the floor, exhausted by the weight of the howling consistencies. He looked over at Maiev, who had her back turned to him, wishing it was her in this cage and that he could take his anger out on her.

Give in.

Monster.

Massacre them all.

Die.

You are already dead.

No, you are not.

She is not dead.


"Be silent!" Illidan howled into the darkness, ignoring Maiev's hissing for him to be quiet and putting his head between his knees.

There was no way he could continue living like this, with the constant slithered reminders of what had happened to his life, the fel fire and maelstrom colliding in his brain and just making smoke, filling his head until he was dizzy and lost.

He lied down, and all he could do was think about the smoke, and how he could no longer even weep for what he had lost.

Alright, go on...

(he should get up and pace a bit, as he did in the Illidan novel)

Mana

It was just meant as a Halloween prompt, not something long-term.
