Guys, I can’t even. I know what that means now. Divines know Memai has made some amazing art for me over the years (and one I haven’t even posted yet of an upcoming ‘ship). But this, this might be the one that has killed me dead.
It was true what they said, Solstheim didn’t have weather, just ash. The women pulled their scarves tighter around their faces as they trudged toward the fort. The lulls in the storms were long enough to gain some momentum, but when the winds blew, the ash whipped around them, settling into the cracks and creases in their clothing and skin.
