By faction they were adversaries, but as souls of Azeroth, they were the closest of companions.
One Alliance, the other Horde - a love so forbidden, would this realm allow them to express their desires? Or could they only embrace one another in the spirit realm?
The Orcish Knight of the Ebon Blade, Lsannta, and the citizen of Stormwind, Mckenna, meet on the field of battle. A longing look in the mage's eye draws the attention of the muscular orc. Having admired each other for so long from afar, the Death Knight faces his greatest battle - within his mind, he knows it is wrong to use his dark powers for love. His grip drawing from the powers of death pulls the mage closer, but the human instinctively blocks himself in ice.
From within his tomb of ice, he faces immediate regret.
Mckenna thinks to himself: "Why, why must I shield myself from my enemy? He is of the Horde, but I can feel in his dark grip a connection - a love for what is truly inside me. When this icy barrier falls, I should... no I must feel his touch!"
The orc waits patiently, puts down his sword and sheds his shield of blood, knowing the time for fighting is at an end, and the embrace he has been waiting for in countless lives is near. As the block of ice melts, and the two share their first kiss, the death knight feels a feeling in his heart he has never felt before, a dagger pierces his heart as McKenna watches in terror.
Lsannta falls to the ground, and Mckenna sees Hobo standing behind where his true love once stood.
A massive explosion of arcane energy greater than Azeroth had seen before fills the air around him, in its wake, we are left with nothing.
To this day we are not sure exactly what happened, some say he blinked away in the shame of fraternizing with the enemy, others say McKenna /quit for the very last time. It is this author's belief however that you can see the two in an eternal embrace out of the corner of your eye every time you're running back after a wipe, for a brief moment when you spawn at the nearest graveyard, or each time you see a rustling in the shadows whenever you /kiss emote.
