Challenge #03978-J326: Fel Fortunes

My fate is to be a demon king. Just like my father, and his father before him. But I don't want to be a king. I am a demon, but I just want to live a peaceful life. Kind wizard, what do I do? Can you help me change my fate? -- Anon Guest

[AN: There is a difference between Actual Demons, who would never say this thing, and Hellkin, who are called demons by the ignorant public]

"The one in Whitekeep changed everything. Pax Infernus allowed my father to announce his truth. And mine. They've had a few years to get used to 'demons' in charge. At least they're not calling us 'teufs'," The young prince sighed, reaching for a charm that was no longer attached to his right horn. "I never wanted to be king. The longer my father sat the throne, the happier I was and then..."

"The plague," said Wraithvine. "It hit the Hellkin hard. You were lucky to escape it."

"I won't ever escape my truth, but I'd rather escape the blame. People have decided that I'm grasping for power. That I somehow made the plague hit while I was in a boarding school on the other side of the continent. With very thin resources, mind."

Challenge #03688-J035: Tidying to Do

A nation sends out a large, diplomatic, delegation to find Wraithvine, complete with white and gold carriage to bring him back to the kingdom. Why? The King wishes to make the kind elf the heir to his throne, for he has few family, and those he has, have proven to be too selfish for him to consider them for the placement. -- Anon Guest

[AN: This is extra fun because Wraithvine has no desire to be a monarch]

Challenge #03574-I285: A Time of Great Need

"I don't want the throne, I don't want that kind of power."

"I'm sorry, but it's your duty."

"But I'm scared, please don't make me do this?"

"If we find good, honorable, people to help you, will you, then, accept what you must do?"

"You promise they will be honorable, so I don't do something really bad by mistake?"

"I promise." -- The New Guy

The Reign of the Blood Throne was not what one might expect by the name. For a

Challenge #03382-I094: Divine... Wrong?

What makes a ruler? Is it their crown? Their bloodline? Their birthright? Is it their strength, their power, their magic? Is it all of the above? None of the above? These things go through a young prince's mind, as they are told their older sibling has stepped down as heir, and they must take their sibling's place. -- Anon Guest

Centuries ago, a warlord had made a throne, and put a circlet of gold on his head. He made his friends into
