Wouldn't the Hermiones be more likely to introduce the drow to Mead? And drinking in long houses etc?

Nice update SFI :) I'm so glad I don't have to imagine something just because I read it

Agreed, Hermionnes would probably be much more likely to introduce mead to the Drows, that is if they were peaceful, although the highland raiders could have just stolen the Mead and distributed it through the underground to raise a profit!

You do realize mead would probably be insanely expensive? XD

“So that’s settled.” In the end, Ariel had spend 4 cycles at the Vloz’ress, first to wait until she could actually talk to Kharla and Waes and then to explain her plan in such a way that Kharla followed it. “I’ll see if I can find you some armour, Kharla.”
“That is very much appreciated.” Waes’soloth answered, sitting beside Kharla in a meditative lotus-position. “I doubt her powers stop swords.”
“Not directly at least.” Ariel agreed, getting up from where she had been sitting on the ground. “I’ll leave you to it then.”
“One more thing.” Waes’soloth called out as the Sarghress turned to leave the room. “We lost our tailor and I need some more... flexible clothing. Could you?”
“Sure. I’ll see if I can get some orange in there too.” Ariel assured her as she left.

“I wish I could go with you.” Faen whispered, leaning against her lover.
“And then what?” Ariel wrapped her arm around the smaller female. “Your mother is already coming with us and – no offense – she is far more powerful than you are. There’d be no use for you.”
“Yeah...” The Sullisin’rune sighed softly. “Just don’t get yourself killed, okay?”
“Hey, with all of those capable people around?” The Sarghress chuckled lightly. “I’ll be lucky if I see any fighting to begin with.”
“You’re still the one leading this... mission.” Faen reminded her, wrapping her arms around Ariel’s neck. “And what about...?”
“We’ll have to see.” Ariel looked at her hair. Briefly concentrating, it was soon a vibrant red. “How does this look on me?”
“It’s a bit much...”Faen tilted her head. “Are you sure that you need to do that?”
“Yes.” The taller female nodded, her cheek rubbing against the light-blue hair of the woman she was still holding.
“Then perhaps...” She extracted herself from the embrace, walking over to the small side-table beside their bed. “Perhaps this’ll work...”
“Uh... what exactly?” Ariel tilted her head questioningly when Faen came back with several hair-clips and black ribbons in her hand.
“Sit still and we’ll see.” Faen climbed onto the bed behind her, carefully combing the hair with her fingers before setting to work.

Someone knocked on her door. Chirinide looked up in surprise, not having expected anyone. “Who is there?” Shan had gone to find them some drinks.
“It’s me.” The Kyorl’solenurn did a double-take when she recognized the voice, getting up at once to open the door.
“Kiel’ndia?” She blinked in surprise. “What in Sharess’ name are you doing here?”
“Can I come inside?” The Vloz’ress counter-asked. “I’d rather not everyone hears.”
“... Sure.” The Warden moved aside, allowing the orange-haired female to enter.
“Did Ariel tell ye what she’s planning to pull?” Without a care in the world Kiel dropped down on the bed.
“Faen did.” The golden-haired Ssu answered with a light frown. “Why does that bring you here?”
“Ye wanna come?” Kiel crossed her legs, leaning back slightly. “I have a spot on my team... and can ye imagine the fuck going down when a Kyorl works with... well, moi?”
“And you are serious about it too, I can tell...” Chiri shook her head. “Why me?”
“Cause in that giant shit-storm of the dragons, what’s a second?” Kiel flung her arms in the air, grinning widely. “C’mon, it’ll be hilarious.”
“You are insane.” The Seer stated in disdain, knowing full well that that was more of a compliment than anything. “Can Shan come?”
“Sorry, ya’d fill the quota.” Kiel shook her head, idly fiddling with the sword left leaning against the wall.
“He is my blade.” Chiri snatched the sword away before Kiel stabbed someone with it. Or launched it into a wall.
“Nah, that thing is.” Kiel wagged her finger at the sword. “So, ya in or what?”
“I’ll talk to Shan about it.” The Kyorl answered after a short pause. “I’ll tell you this evening.”
“Good enough.” Kiel fist-bumped her shoulder, marching outside again. She nearly ran into the Templar living in those room, but only waved at him as she disappeared down the corridor.
“What was she doing here?” Shan asked, having only saved their drinks from spilling everywhere by virtue of them being in closed bottles.

A day later a suit of armour was delivered to the Vloz’ress tower for Kharla’ggen, as well as an orange dress with black pants for Waes’soloth. Chirinide consented to joining the little expedition into the Dome, though her blade was less than amused that he could not join her as well.
In just a couple of hours Ariel had stated she would speak to as many of their forces as could be gathered in both the short notice and heavy fighting in the city. She was now sitting in one of the more secluded rooms of her fortress, together with those that would join her the next day.
“Are you sure telling everyone is the best option right now?” Ash’waren had managed to find herself a suit of armour somewhere, having sent it to the Sarghress-smiths for fixing. She was now twirling her helmet in one hand. “There are bound to be spies who will warn the Sharen.”
“I am not going to tell them about the Dome-infiltration.” Ariel assured her. “However, I will tell them about the Dome-attack.”
“It’s rather too late to change it now at any rate.” Koil’dorath countered. “What I like to know is why we are gathered here. How complicated can it be beside ‘getting in, crashing the party, getting out’?”
“Our attendant.” Kharla’ggen pointed at the female beside her. She had put on her new clothes already. Chiri had gotten a small twitch when seeing her for the first time: she now knew who had been in her vision. “Ariel deemed you to know.”
“Know what?” Quillýate leaned against the wall, flexing her hand absent-mindedly.
“You tell me.” The attendant spoke up softly, removing her mask. She was answered by the sound of a helmet falling to the ground.
“Waes...?” Sil’lice breathed in shock, her eyes soon filling with horror. “What...?”
“Your sister.” The Val’Beldrobbaen rested her hands with the mask still in them in her lap, looking at the Sharen with unmoved, blood-red eyes. The Vloz’ress and Kyorl’solenurn said nothing at that, pointedly looking elsewhere. “And her daughter. Did you think Ariel made hollow claims to Quain’tana about who caused my loss?”
“You... you were Ariel’s...” Koil’dorath pointed from her little sister to the Beldrobbaen and back. “All this time?”
“Yes.” Ariel nodded, rising from her seat. “This was why I was so... desperate to get into contact with Khal’harror when this mess started. I had decided to indebt the Val’Beldrobbaen to us, by aiding them in regaining Waes’soloth. By the time I lost all hope for that, it had become too late for me to admit to mother that I held her.”
“So my mother died because you were soft on a thrice-cursed Val?” The orange-haired woman snarled, getting up as well.
“I did not expect Khal to be as unreasonable as he proved to be.” Ariel did not back down. “And believe me, had I know what the Sharen’s treachery would cost us, I would have gone about things differently.” Her purple eyes narrowed, as she returned the stare with equal power. “I did not want any to die, but what would you had me do? The Beldrobbaen would have been valuable, had we gained them.”
“But we did not.” Ash’waren whispered. “Hundreds died because of this, Ariel.”
“And the Sharen will burn ere this is done.” Waes’soloth calmly said. “I have nothing left to lose. Come what may, Zarv’swati will not make tomorrow’s evening.”
“We will see them dance in our wrath.” Kharla’ggen’s hands tightened around the doll she still carried with her. A little, untainted Waes’soloth peeked from between her hands.
“It matters little now. What is done, is done.” Quill pulled the Nori’fu back to her seat. “Had it worked, we would be praising Ariel now. We ought not to blame her for taking chances: we did it ourselves often enough, and not always successfully.”
“There’s something else we hafta talk about.” Kiel finally spoke up, twirling her dagger idly in her fingers. She was sitting behind Waes’soloth and Kharla. “It might cheer ye up, Koil...”

True to her word, Ariel spoke not of the hidden infiltration on the Dome, instead announcing to the clan that they would assault it from different directions. The assault on the front-gates would be led by Kel’noz, Sang and Rosof, while an assault against the ‘backside’ would be under command of herself and Koil. In truth, the second assault would be led by their seconds, the truth to be kept secret until the ten had long entered the Dome through the sewers.
She managed to inflame the pride and battle-lust of the Sarghress, calling upon their identification of anti-Val and Quain’tana-followers.
She was unskilled in speaking to the masses, but her open and honest determination and speech seemed to win them over far faster than would have any flowery speech.

“A very undignified way of getting somewhere.” Ash’waren muttered darkly, being reminded of when the Sharen had dragged her through the mud in front of Diva’ratrika at the end of their war.
“There are worse things.” Waes’soloth’s monotone voice came from up ahead, the Beldrobbaen having taken the lead of the small group. Just behind her were Ariel and Kharla’ggen, the Vloz’ress wearing a deep-orange suit of armour with dragon-skulls as her shoulder-guards. Ariel’s hair was braided elaborately, only certain parts of the hair dyed red so that it looked like the Saghress clan-insignia on her back.
The Sullisin’rune could not stop the shudder down her back. The black-haired woman had been known for her unmoved nature, but the taint had worsened it by far. She shared a brief glance with the Val’Sharen walking beside her.
Suddenly Waes’soloth disappeared, fading into the shadows of the small pipe up above. They waited for a few moments, before soft knocking informed them that the coast was clear.
Between one Earth-affinity and several Earth-foci, the toilet stood little chance, soon falling apart. Waes’soloth stood waiting, a body with broken neck in one of her hands.
“And he just wanted to go to the toilet.” Koil’dorath grinned lightly, quickly marching to the door to listen to the corridor outside. “Clear.”
“For several corridors in all directions.” Ash’waren added, her eyes glowing lightly as she extended her empathy out. “The defenders are moving to the door. I feel surprise... They did not expect this siege.”
“Who’d dare attack the Dome?” The black-white haired Sarghress asked rhetorically as she slowly opened the door and peered around. “Which way?”
The Beldrobbaen said nothing, merely turning down the corridor she wanted.
They encountered only a few stray guards, most having gone to reinforce the defence. Leading them through slave-corridors, barely wide enough for Kiel’s Berserker, they ended up at the top of the great stairs leading from the throne-room to the door.
Even when seeing the devastation, the Beldrobbaen showed no emotion. Though she did stare at the rubble blocking the throne-room for a bit before they moved down the stairs.
Between Ash’waren’s empathy and Waes’soloth’s summoned shadows, they reached the door to the Council Room without anyone noticing them.
Inside there were loud voices, Quill’yate unable to stop a smirk at the fact that the loudest seemed to be the one from Quain’tana. Said smirk was quick to vanish when she registered what was happening inside.

“Then kill me!” The Sarghress snarled, undaunted by the fact that there was nothing she could do to keep the Vel’Sharen from lopping her head off should the other take her up on that. “If you think that’ll get your Waes’soloth back, do so: it won’t matter because I did nothing to her.”
They had put her in the open space inside the lower circle, chained to the floor. She was facing the Beldrobbaen and Sharen-seats, while the Sarghress, Sullisin’rune and Vloz’ress-seats were empty.
“It will be justice.” Odelia spoke up, glowering down upon her. Sitting beside her was Hile’wen, who had also occupied that seat while Waes’soloth still lived and behind them both stood Khal’harror, staring down at the bound female.
“For justice you’d need to shove a spider up Zarv’swati’s cunt.” Quain’tana muttered darkly, throwing only the briefest of side-long glances to the female beside her. “A spider the size of a war-golem.”
“If that is all you have to say...” The Vel’Sharen smirked, lifting her war-axe. “Your head has a date with the floor.”
Nothing stopped it as it went down, until it hit unprotected flesh. Blood sprayed everywhere, hitting the Sharen as much as the ground. For a few long moments, there was silence... and then a soft thumb as flesh hit stone. Quain’tana’s hair reddened as blood started to pool on the marble floor.
