SP Fanfic Other Dimension after DotL: Part 1

OK so before we get started with the fanfic I should explain a little. This is a redo of one of my previous SP fanfics, which is 'SP Fanfic Other Dimension' ... so the difference is that this fanfic will contain spoilers for one thing. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ DYING OF THE LIGHT THEN DO NOT READ ON!!

So after reading DotL I realized that some things were different so this is updated and also this fanfic will be darker and more realistic with racist treatment/ second class citizenship of mortal. This will also probably be more accurate to what woman would have been treated like. Um yeah darker stuff. This fanfic is just more grown up, (Blame 12 years a slave and my friends history lessons). For the most part the characters will be the same but with some changes. The biggest changes will be the extended family relationships and Adelle's brothers (mainly their personality) This fanfic is likely to replace 'SP Fanfic Other Dimension'.

Sorry for my babbling. Here you go.


Lord Vile strolled down the corridors heading straight for his chambers. He turned into a corridor with a small group of male sorcerers that had backed a mortal maid against wall. One of the sorcerers spotted Vile and gave him a courteous nod. The rest of the group swivelled their heads and also gave a courteous nod. Even the maid knew her place and did her best to give a bow despite holding cleaning supplies and being surrounded. After acknowledging Lord Vile the sorcerers went back to their conversation with the maid.
"Come on, how about you hang out with us" said one of the sorcerers, "We will be sure to show you a good time" The maid just shook her head and said that she had other things to do, but the sorcerers just ignored her excuse and kept insisting. “If you come now we’ll be gentle but if you keep resisting we might not be so careful” he continued
“I-I really must be going now” she whispered as she tried to squeeze between the men. They simply pushed her back against the wall. “Please, sirs I-I really can’t stay, I, I h-have to go” she said
Vile tilted his head, the maid was familiar. She was the one who cleaned his room. He’d only seen her a few times and she currently looked terrified. Vile approached the crowd “She’s my maid” Vile said when he was right behind them. Vile wasn’t in the mood to watch this. The sorcerer all spun around to face Vile and the maid lowered her gaze to the floor.
“Lord Vile! Y-you don’t want us to take care of her?” asked a sorcerer nervously.
Vile turned to the mage, “No” Vile whispered then he made a gesture for the maid top follow. She quickly hurried after him and followed Vile into his room.
“Bed” said Vile. Her eyes widened and she paled, “The sheets need to be changed” Lord Vile turned his back and walked over to the armchair. The maid let out a muffled sob and then immediately changed the sheets.


Adelle was heading home from the palace in the cool autumn evening. She had an almost normal day. Except for one event. A few sorcerers had cornered her then Vile came around the corner and for some reason helped her out of the situation. Yeah sure she was one of his maids but Adelle rarely saw him or talked to him let alone giving him a reason to help her out. Adelle let out a sigh and ran her hand through her brown hair. The event had been bothering her the whole time from that point after. “It’s no big deal, you just need to sleep it off” Adelle said to herself as she walked up to the house door.


The next day Adelle was pleased to find that everything was still normal. She got up and started work at the palace at half past six and helped to clean the main halls before most sorcerers were even awake. Adelle also helped to clean the drawing room, the library and spruced up a guest bedroom. By then it was about half past ten. Adelle went to dust and wash the floor of a sorcerer who had taken the name Javari Emote. Once she had done that it was time for lunch, so Adelle went down to the mortal area and ate her lunch while trying to tweak a drawing that she started the night before. When her break was up Adelle grabbed the cleaning supplies again and made her way to Vile’s room while it was still lunch time. Adelle didn’t expect Vile to be in his room but she knocked anyway. As usual there was no answer. Adelle dusted and washed the floor of the empty room them went back downstairs to drop off the cleaning supplies and wash some sheets, clothes and towels.  At five Adelle went up to help clean the dining room and the breakfast room. By finishing time, eight o’clock Adelle was exhausted. Adelle and her mum headed home together to have dinner and go to bed.
When they got home dinner was just about ready. Adelle’s dad had cooked dinner because it was the one day that both Adelle and her mum came home late. Adelle’s eyes swept the house, they stood in the living/dining/kitchen, the main room of the house. The room was large but that was because it was three in one. To the right was the kitchen, with the green paint peeling off the wooden cupboards, and of the wood on the island bench. In the centre of the room there was a green couch and matching arm chairs surrounding a carpet that was in front of a fire place. On either side of the fire place there were halls that lead to the bed rooms. The one of the left side lead to the parent’s bedrooms, the one on the right leads to the kid’s bedrooms. On the left side of the room there was an oak dining table with six matching chairs.
“So how was today?” asked Adelle’s dad – Tony
“It was exhausting” said Adelle as she dumped her basket on the bench and flopped on the couch.
“Really? You don’t look that tired” said Will, the youngest of Adelle’s two younger brothers. Adelle turned her head from her horizontal position on the couch and glared at him. “Just kidding” he said
“Delly!” exclaimed Adelle’s other brother Ben as he flopped on top of her.
“Uh Ben get off!” said Adelle sounding a little irritated. Ben made a pouting face and got off of her. “Sorry Ben, I’m just a bit tired OK”
“Yeah OK” replied Ben.
“Ben, Will, can you set the table please” said Debbie, Adelle’s mum. Both of the boys grumbled something about not wanting to set the table before they moved from the lounge to the kitchen. Adelle stayed sprawled on the sofa till dinner was ready then she heaved herself off the comfy furniture and ate at the dining table. After dinner Adelle curled up in bed and doodled in her sketch book. The book was a well-worn leather that could have pages taken out or added. Adelle had had this book for years, she just kept taking out the drawings and storing them in draws. Adelle got this book when she started taking drawing seriously at thirteen. She was seventeen now and she was what she considered pretty decent at drawing. Adelle didn’t draw for long before she placed her book on her desk in order to go to sleep.

A couple of days later.

Jane, that was the new maid’s name. Adelle only met her an hour ago. Sure she had seen her around but she hadn’t actually met her. Till recently that was. Adelle had been given the task of taking Jane around with her to show her the basic ropes of cleaning the palace. First they went to a guest room to spruce it up. While doing this Adelle asked Jane about what she knew about cleaning and the rules of the palace. She knew most of the basics of cleaning and she knew all the rules. Though the rules were your general mortal/ sorcerer interaction rules. Basically do anything a sorcerer says, don’t insult them, show then respect and if you can’t do the task that the request then politely decline or say that you have other jobs which you must tend to.

After the guest room was cleaned up then Adelle and Jane got to work on mopping the halls.
“Just be careful not to step on the areas that you’ve already washed. And try to leave the doorways dry unless you know that there’s no one in the room.” Warned Adelle
“Yeah sure. I know that” said Jane as she mopped the floor. They had split the hall in half, Adelle moped the right side while Jane moped the left. Adelle was mainly focused on her half of the hall. Adelle knocked on every door even if no one was supposed to be in there. “Hello is anyone in here? I’m just letting you know that the floor is getting washed right now” said Adelle to every door she washed in front of. Adelle looked over to see how Jane was going. Jane had washed more than Adelle had but Adelle dismissed that, Adelle knew that she could be slow sometimes. Until Jane washed in front of a door without knocking on it.
“Jane you know you’re supposed to be notifying the people inside the room that the floor’s wet right?”
“Yeah” said Jane, “So what, there’s probably no one in there”
Adelle just raised an eyebrow and lent on her mop, “Slaking off on your fist day is not the way to leave a good impression” Adelle knew that the person in the room should currently be at a meeting so there was no real harm. “You know it doesn’t hurt to be safe”
“Yeah I know but it’s saving me time”
Adelle sighed, “Just do it for the other doors ok, it honestly doesn’t hurt to knock. Trust me I knock and I’m not dead yet”
“Yeah yet” said Jane with a smirk.
Adelle gave her a grin back, “Gees thanks for the vote of confidence” replied Adelle dryly. Jane’s smirk only broadened. The doors next to Jane opened up and Lord Vile stepped out, only he wasn’t expecting the wet floor and he slipped. It was only a tiny slip and the shadows flared up to catch Vile, but he didn’t need them to help him gracefully regain his balance. Immediately after regaining his balance Vile spun to the nearest living being to throw his wrath upon. This unfortunate being just so happened to be Jane, who had watch the whole scene play out and was now horror stricken because she realized that should have knocked to see if there was anyone in that room. Jane stepped back and slipped landing on her backside. Before Adelle truly knew what she was doing she ran across the hall and slid in front of Jane before any shadows could harm her.
“Sir” said Adelle then she took a breath to gather herself, “I apologise profusely for my companions actions” began Adelle as she bowed in respect but had one arm out to protect Jane. Adelle’s heart was racing and she didn’t dare to meet his eyes. Instead Adelle looked straight down at the shiny wet floor. “It is her first day at cleaning and she was carless. I promise that she will not do it again. Please sir, give her a chance” Adelle hesitated, “I take responsibility for her actions” There was no response, but no shadows moved beyond dancing around Vile’s feet. Adelle swore she felt his eyes narrow. But none the less he nodded his head and turned away. Adelle and Jane let out the breath that they were both holding and Jane crawled out from behind Adelle. Jane stood up and Adelle flashed her a small smile. To mortals they just got away with something that was equivalent to murder. Adelle glanced back toward Vile who was still walking away. Then Adelle noticed too late that shadows where heading towards her. Adelle didn’t have time to move, before the shadows had forced her back and smashed her against the wall. Adelle heard Jane scream and Adelle stiffened her own scream as pain laced up her neck and abdominal. She clenched her jaw and scrunched her eyes shut. She couldn’t move, she couldn’t breathe. Adelle cranked an eye open only to see a shadow piercing the bottom of her right lung. Adelle tried to breathe but her right lung wasn’t working properly and every breath sent a fresh wave of pain through her body. She was pinned against the wall with a shadow through her lung and a shadow through her left shoulder. Slowly the shadows retracted and Adelle collapsed. She tried to catch herself but she couldn’t. The last thing she saw was the floor rising up towards her. 


Yes this Fanfic will be mainly from Adelle's perspective. So if you don't like OC's as major characters or a skeptical about them than that's totally fine! I'll admit I'm always skeptical when an OC is the main character but I'll generally give it a go if it sounds interesting. Also this is not a shipping thing. I don't ship Vile with anyone. So if you had that concern than don't worry, it's not gonna happen.

I hope that you have a great day!
