Nebellea

He knew everything had gone wrong the moment Bella fell out of the sky, coins flying in the air behind her.

Quinn dashed from cover to draw fire and pit steel against steel with the Mistborn he assumed was Marienesse, hurling coins at a rapid speed in her direction. A look of concern flashed over her face as she found herself unable to move at the sudden onslaught, but reflexes kicked in and she spun out of the way, gasping.

Seeing the distraction, Nebellea, bloodied and beaten, turned to shoot, knocking and firing her arrow in the blink of an eye, before dashing again behind cover. Marienesse was knicked in the shoulder, knocked off balance by the two pronged attack. She hesitated as a moment’s hush fell as the three mistborn manoeuvred themselves, before smirking and firing one more time at the other noble lady.

“Fuck,” he swore as he watched Bella collapse and succumb to her wounds. He shot himself across the courtyard, half running and half flying from his steelpush, to land by Nebellea.

“Stay with me Nebellea, stay with me…”

He dug for her first aid kit, praying to the Lord Ruler she had brought it with her. He began stablising, digging into knowledge he hadn’t need since back in Empoli. The last time he had seen this much blood was when he mum had been slaughtered and left in the streets. He remembered tin-seeking the smell of her perfume, collapsing to his knees when he found her. Much like now, his knees felt cold against the cobbled streets, a similar chill creeping up his back and causing his hands to shake. The plan must have gone wrong. They had attempted to sneak over the wall, and Quinn was to keep watch and drop in if required, and now he had his friend bleeding through his fingertips.

He sat back on his heels as he finished the bandage, her breathing less laboured and the bleeding staunched for the time being. He could hear fighting back towards the keep, the thwack of wooden canes, but for the moment he was frozen in a cacophony of fear and hate and love for his friends.

If he were to have been asked that morning, he would have counted on one hand the people he cared about: Pidge, Penndlehave, Pallino and Alhara. In much the way as the nobles seemed to hate all scar, he acknowledged his own hatred for nobles that came from no other reason than the circumstances of their birth. He would always respect Fallow, now Goradel, and Owandise, in part for the immense debt of gratitude he owed them, and those such as Cassiel and Teven he would potentially call friends, but as before the intensity of his sentiment for Nebellea surprised him.

It was love, of a kind, but a love he didn’t appreciate until it was threatened. He had never had a family, and even the surrogacy of his friends was only partially similar. He craved his own independence, he actively pursued self-sufficiency, yet Bella had tirelessly and frustratingly wormed into his affections. Quinn grinned slightly, trying to imagine if she was more like a sister or a mother and her reaction to both options.

The moments he recalled, when he had laughed at her or pranked her, came from a sense of superiority without doubt, yet they were made possible by her trusting, almost childlike optimism. But she was honest, to a fault in regards to Hyrum, but he knew that he could place absolute faith in her to do right by him and the rest of him; something he would hesitate to say about many others. Quinn expected Pidge or Fallow or others to put themselves first, as he would do, yet as she had demonstrated on multiple occasions, Nebellea seemed willing to put herself in dire circumstances for the sake of the “Rebou” household.

“We’ve come quite a way since Empoli, haven’t we Nebs?” He whispered, as he lifted her onto his shoulders, “Don’t worry, I’ll get you home.”

The Great Plan

I feel I must try set my plan to page to better understand it, I want a freedom from oppression for the Skaa and a new start for all. But I want it without death or bloodshed Lord Ruler know I have seen too much of that. The others believe it a foolish plan of a silly girl but I believe that I will suceed!

Obstacles

  • The Skaa’s desire for revenge
  • The Opposition of House Panassian
  • The Opposition of House Triskinle
  • The Opposition of House Renoux
  • The Opposition of House Hasting
  • The Opposition of House Dilisteni
  • The Opposition of House Bylerum
  • Kistaris’ gung ho attitude
  • The opposition of the Obligators
  • Convince the Thieving crews they are better off without constantly stealing everything not nailed down.
  • Ensuring our city can be defended in the aftermath
  • Ruin

So we need to bring on side the Nobles and Skaa to have productive discussions, establish a new legal system, reign in centuries of prejudice, convince the Obligators that their god is gone and that things need to change all without destroying ourselves.

Solutions
Skaa Desire for Revenge

  • The Skaa desire for revenge needs to be replaced with hope for the future and their children. Speeches and showing them what can be achieved with this must be done. I have an idea to give Alhara a school and a place for the Terris to teach from and spread their knowledge now the Lord Ruler is gone.
  • We will also need to rein in the Skaa fighters and ensure that they can be disciplined. We will need to insitgate a few month training programme to ensure this
  • Sandcrown and Quillan need to be established as Generals of the Skaa rebellion and then train the troops to follow them. Promote rivalry and competition between the two forces. Fiora, Owandise and Kwabez need to also be brought on for this.
  • We must control the weapon stockpile to prevent the opportunistic Skaa attacking before we are prepared
  • We will need set up bases to train and teach from.

The Opposition of House Panassian

  • Solved short term our need for Gold will hopefully bring the rest of the house in line and the rewards allomancerss will reap in a new system.

The Opposition of House Triskinle

  • Give Durran and Valette a chance to be together under this new government they could marry and be happy
  • Bringing them back in from being social Pariahs – arrange a secret trade deal to the Renouxs for the metal from their mines.

The Opposition of House Renoux

  • Encourage Tevan and Quillan’s friendship
  • Offer them the large scale contracts for the new army of Austrex
  • Arrange deal between them and Triskinle
  • Offer Valette and Durran chance to marry under new government
  • Buy all their weapons with Atium

The Opposition of House Hasting

  • Appear stronger than them – they have no Atium?

The Opposition of House Dilisteni

  • Reese is open to change she is kind hearted
  • Darielle to bring Molsier in line
  • Reese scared for her family offering safety and stability should help
  • Increase rumours of rampaging Koloss and monsters

The Opposition of House Bylerum

  • Needs investigation
  • My house has traditionally good ties with thme

Kistaris’ gung ho attitude

  • Marginalise Kistaris by having Sandcrown etc. made generals loyalty to them rather than Kistaris
  • Convince him to give us an operational budget so we can operate independantly
  • Need to find out how he became leader

The opposition of the Obligators

  • Convince them the Lord Ruler is gone and they need to protect his people as he did before – Tristana sent with a message?
  • Bribes

To Buy

  • Additional Ships for Zolacaster (4+ Resources)
  • School for Alhara
  • Weapons from Renoux
  • Bribes for Obligators
  • Additional Plantations and grounds for training
  • Safe Houses
  • Metal Stockpiles

Shopping Bane and Dueling Canes

Shopping wasn’t one of Quinn’s strong suits, considering the money he had got used to spending. Skaa upbringing emphasised functionality: and this pragmatic attitude seemed to have been carried over into his new life.

He picked up a duelling cane. Fallow had told him it was all about weighting and how you fought. If you were a fancy feinter you needed something light and hardy, but if you wanted to take someone out in one then something heavier was better. He hadn’t thought teven often enough, but gathered something lighter would be better.

The skaa behind the counter eyed him. He was a burly man, probably worked in the field and was employed after some injury.

I wonder if he’s in the resistance he pondered. If he wasn’t then it would be a good connection to have, nice way to arm up the armies we’ll need, and we’ll need a stockpile too. I’ll have to mention it to Fallow.

He turned back to the weapons, looking now at daggers.

I might have to have a conversation with Teven about whether he’s allomantically inclined. If he’s a mistborn he would be brilliant to have on side, but they way his family treats him makes me doubt it. Maybe Valette, that would explain why she was dating Durran.

Then again maybe it was a play. Maybe they have no allomancers so they wanted one on side, until he showed himself to be a little incompetent. Can’t do well for a weapons dealer to not really have any protections.

He tutted to himself for getting distracted. He was here to buy Teven a gift, not explore the web of political unions. That was Bella’s job.

He closed his eyes. Don’t think about it. Just go with your gut feeling, it’s the thought that counts.

Scanning again, he picked out a more upmarket white aspen rod. It was light, but strong; flexible when he pressed on the ends, but didn’t break under pressure.

Nodding to himself, he bought the rod and began walking to the Renoux household.
