Author: gilli_ann
Title: Dragon and Sorceress
Rating: G
Character/s: Aithusa, Morgana
Summary: A brief character study of season 5 Morgana, from Aithusa's POV
Warnings: None
Word Count: 200
Prompt: 'Tender'
Author's Notes: I consider Aithusa to be female

Aithusa rested mutely on the large bed. Only her eyes moved, tracking Morgana as she paced— ceaselessly, restlessly, back and forth through the cold, murky chamber - a solid dark presence among insubstantial shadows.

Morgana kept rubbing her pale, thin wrists, permanently tender from the cruel chafing of the cold irons that had so long encased them. She was muttering something under her breath, her face now and then twisting with a snarl of sudden rage.

Crippled wings drooping, Aithusa lowered her head. Morgana had never abandoned her, had suffered terribly because of her, and Aithusa loved her unconditionally. She would follow Morgana in every endeavour, through every danger.

Aithusa herself would forever remain stunted and malformed, but Morgana had seemingly recovered from their shared ordeal. Her body was whole once more, her magic was stronger than ever. Nevertheless, Aithusa possessed dragonkind's piercing clarity of vision; the ability to discern fates and see beyond appearances. She was looking now into a mind that had been permanently broken, splintered into ill-fitting fragments of rage, suspicion and boiling resentment.

At the core of her dejected reptilian heart, Aithusa knew the truth. The last High Priestess, Aithusa's beloved mistress, was stark raving mad.
