Save Kainne Entry by Yubria Save Kainne Entry by Yubria
:iconkelpiehunterkai: is having a contest to figure out a way to keep Kainne (spotted centaur) from dying in her story. Take whatever liberties, but try to keep the story close to what is already happening. That's the short explanation.



Here goes the long one:
After reading [link] I thought "Adaire really wanted to kill Versai. So what if he actually did?" and this is what came of it. I was originally going to do one image, but when I think about stories I sketch out my ideas, and I had enough sketches I thought I might as well make them into a comic. Without dialogue. And a couple big gaps of unexplained stuff.

Two things first: One, for this to work, Kainne's disease is slightly altered from what I read of it in his descriptions. He still has it, but it comes in sudden attacks when he's exerting himself. It's getting a lot worse b/c of all the stress and work the dark elves are putting him through, but if he had sufficient time to rest, it would improve at least a little.

Trogdor. The bay centaur I made up- he's been a slave to the dark elves for a few years now. He's fared pretty well, partially because he's one of the naturally tougher centaurs, and partially because of his drive for freedom and desire to get home to his family (Medli (wife) and young daughter). However, he hasn't found a good chance to escape yet, and only makes the dark elves more hawkish over him because he quite frequently makes life hard for them.

So Adaire, mad and scared and sad already from knowing Kainne is going to die, jumps up and runs at Versai, taking him and the Jikonti by surprise. He hits one Jikonti on the head, either knocking it out or killing it, and throws the other one aside. Two other dark elves and Trogdor realize what is happening. Trogdor sees it as an opportunity for freedom and promptly takes advantage (insert sickening crack). He takes the guard's spear (presumably crushing the guard) and skewers a Jikonti, then grabs the guard's bow and arrows and starts shooting at the other dark elves. The other centaurs break out and join in the chaos, and the remaining Jikonti rip into anything bloody lying on the ground. Any dark elves nearby the stable don't think anything of the noise, as it IS the Purging, and the sounds of bodies being ripped apart is normal. SO that being said and done, the centaurs take off into the caverns, trying to find a way out into the open without being discovered. Kainne is having a hard time of it- he's able to push himself, since freedom is such a real thing right now, but he's only able to push himself so far.
Trogdor tells the others to go ahead while he stays behind to help Adaire and Kainne. (Trogdor really hates himself for doing this, because it will only delay his getting home. However, he stays to help b/c his Medli has the same (albeit not nearly as bad) disease, and he would want someone to help her if she were in that position.) Soon they hear sounds of Jikonti coming up behind them- their escape had been discovered. Trogdor tells Adaire and Kainne to hide in a side cavern while he leads the Jikonti away from them and the route the other centaurs took. When they've passed, the brothers slowly make their way outside to find the elf that would help them escape.

And there you have it. Lacking in the originality department, I'm sure, but I've already figured out that plots aren't my strong point, so that's not too surprising.
Btw- Trogdor can be replaced by one of your characters, Kelpie, if you want. I personally wouldn't want someone else making up a character of his own and sticking it in an important role in MY story, but then, that's just me. I also apologise for inaccurate Jikonti, b/c I pretty much drew everything from memory. I don't, however, apologise for the exceedinly *snicker* SHORT Versai, as he deserves it. (In my mind, Adaire killed him, in case that wasn't clear. *sigh* I suppose he could manage to get away if you needed him later on....)

And I think that's it. Don't use the art, characters, etc without my permission or Kelpie's.

:dance: This was awesome! I can already tell that I'm going to have a hell of a time choosing the winners. This is entirly possible too XD Actually you got his disease right. It comes with exertion. He's wiped out mostly from that more than the disease. But sick is sick to the dark elves. XDXD yeah Versai feels so insulted at being short! Perfect revenge!

That is an INCREDIBLE idea!! How long did it take you to think of that? :faint:

I wish! Uh, not that long, really. She only posted the journal for the contest yesterday or the day before. The idea itself came pretty quickly when I was reading how Kainne died. It took longer to actually figure out if it was even possible for it to happen, though. Thank you!

Man, it's gonna be hard to top this one!

I think the biggest hurdle in trying to write for this is working with Kainne's disease.

Yeah, his disease is pretty tricky. I sorta got around it by changing it a little- creative liberty is the best. Thanks!

Creativity is overrated. Take Avatar, for example. (granted, *I* didn't like it, but still)
