There is another side to the themes from Ananiel I want to approach with this piece. The original one was about the feeling of starting something you don't have the power to stop. For a lot of people that resonated with feelings of addiction. While the original was more centered on the powerlessness of that feeling, I want this one to be more of the false power that comes with it.
One day as the sun began to set, the boats attempted to return to shore. Ananiel pleaded with them to stay. They ignored his words. So, in fit of anger he summoned the waves to do what his words could not. He wrenched their boats from shore until the land was lost to the horizon. In life, first seafarers had been his acolytes. In death, they were their own men.
