Song of Oblivion - Chapter Six
The plan was simple. Negotiate their way into an audience with Aranaea and persuade her to give up the stolen books. They had five hundred Septims they were prepared to part with if other tactics failed and if worst came to worst...facing Aranaea alone or nearly so made for better odds than fighting their way through the entire fort. With their leader gone, the others would most likely scatter. It was a straightforward plan, at least in theory....but Onmund, Lalwen and Katarina knew that in practice it would be anything but. Too many unknowns remained: the size and layout of Fellglow Keep, the number of inhabitants, but most dangerous of all was the fact that it was their territory. They knew the place and had the superior numbers, both of which were powerful advantages. Potentially deadly ones.
Those thoughts and more roved inside Kate's mind that misty Middas morning as the group drew near the ruins of Fellglow, which jutted like broken teeth from the rugged landscape. Most of

What was safe to attempt and what wasn't. I

A week flew by like an Alik'r summer storm. Katarina spent this time settling into her new life as a College apprentice; when she wasn't attending lessons she was doing research of her own, delving into the deeper mysteries of Enchanting now that she had the proper guidance and facilities at her disposal. The going was steady, but slow. The more she learned, the more she realized how much there was to learn, stirring the old hunger within her. More and more books found their way into her room, which was beginning to look like a smaller, more chaotic version of the Arcanaeum. Brelyna Maryon remarked as much when visiting her new friend on the eve of their expedition to Saarthal, glancing at the growing number of tomes, scrolls and notes stacked on every available surface.
“What are you trying to do, start your own library in here?”
“I like reading”, Kate said simply as she leafed through a book on her lap.
“Do you like sleeping? When are you p
