Adoptables - Glitched Mudrakers!
The idea is from the glitched Mud hidein game from the Battle for the Edge Expansion. Two Muddies appear so close together they looked like a double-headed Mudraker. This was pointed out by Wolf and Star in this recent thread, "Uh-Oh DOUBLE TROUBLE!"
AN ALTERNATE RETELLING OF HOW THE ARCHEOLOGIST CAME ACROSS MUDDIE
Skulder, the Archeologist, was indeed surveying Mudraker Island for relics from antiquity. But before that, he stopped at a boggy island nearby, to surveil there. The mires this far north were often acidic and sucked in relics and even creatures, the latter were known as "bog bodies".
However, the only remains Skulder found were those of an extensive Dragon Hunter camp. They were no longer there, but left behind their refuse - old unusable dragon cages, old fish, the usual signs of humans such as pots and metal bits, broken down stools and tables, a place for a fire. There were also jars and bottles, and of course, a sludge pit. Skulder noted that the sludge pit was rather toxic, as the grasses and plants around it were brown and withered. He also noticed bits of dried plants in the jars, and even some sort of metal shavings. The plants he recognized as poisonous and included False Hellebores (Veratrum album and Veratrum nigrum) and Hemlock (Conium maculatum). What he did not know, was that these plants are also teratogenic, meaning that they can cause birth defects, and are a problem for farmers with grazing livestock like sheep. A few of the broken jars also contained arsenic and nickel. There was also traces of dragon root, and other herbs. Unfortunately, another finding was a pile of dragon bones and remains.
Skulder deduced that the Dragon Hunters had at one time used this camp as a place to experiment with different concoctions to use on dragons, in order to sedate them, or worse, just outright kill them. They had after all figured out the appropriate dose of dragon root, when applied to an arrow, to knock a dragon out, as well as a way to make an aerosol form. They also created an anicdote to the dragon root, which Dagur had later shared with Hiccup (see Season 3 RTTE). It looked as though many of the experiments had failed, judging by the dragon remains there. Many of those appeared to be Mudrakers, probably captured from the nearby Mudraker Island.
The sludge pit, or midden, did not yield too much information (or none that Skulder wanted to know about). Other than its toxicity to the local plant life, he did note egg shell. Probably those poor captive dragons had laid eggs, after being subjected to the Dragon Hunters' atrocities.
As Skulder prepared to leave this sad island with nothing more than a report for Berk that a Hunter camp had been here, he noticed his small ship was a bit shifted from the beach (for Viking ships were able to sail right up to shore since their draft was so shallow) and the tide hadn't come in. There were also puddles of wet mud about. A ball of mud hit him square in the chest. He heard two dragon roars. On the far side of his ship, two dragon heads peered over the railing. At first he was afraid, but having had good experiences with Hiccup and the students at the School of Dragons, his fear dissipated into just some nervousness. The two dragons seemed genial enough, and merely curious.
Skulder waded out to his ship and climbed aboard. The dragons splashed some water at him, and both chirped inquisitively. They looked to be Mudrakers. Skulder pulled out some dried fish to toss to the dragons to distract them, so that he might go about his business. As he got closer to the starboard side, his jaw dropped in shock. It wasn't two Mudrakers, but rather a single, two-headed Mudraker, with double wings and a double tail! Had the Dragon Hunters' experiments resulted in this? Disturbed, he tossed the dried fish to the one dragon's delight, then sailed away to his next destination at Mudraker Island.
His archeological surveying were a little more fruitful there. However, as he soon found out, the curious but slightly shy double-headed Mudraker had followed him. The creature seemed healthy, if strange, so Skulder decided to try his hand at dragon training. He named the dragon "Muddie".
ABOUT THE DRAGONS
These dragons are mutated forms of the Mudraker. It is unknown if they can reproduce, and if so, if the offspring would even be viable. They are able to fly decently, but not as well as single-winged Mudrakers. They have the same sonic breath. There is no formal name for these dragons, but have been called various things like: "Double Muds" or "MuddleRakers".
DISCLAIMER! DON'T PLAY WITH THESE PLANTS OR METALS IN REAL LIFE. They are poisonous. The alkaloid chemicals in these plants, if they don't k.ill outright or cause serious health issues, can cause congenital birth defects. And those defects aren't anything 'cool' like two heads or wings. I am only using them for the purposes of story-telling and to lend an air of authenticity. In actuality, they can k.ill, and are known to cause alot of death, defects, and illness in livestock. Yeah, just felt I needed to throw that out there!
Also, Bog Bodies are real. They are people (and probably animals, too) that for one reason or another (sacrifice or punishment is speculated for a number of them) ended up in a bog. Due to the acidic nature of the bog, the bone is dissolved, leaving a sack of skin, hair, and even organs.

-A Short Story!
(tbh I'm on my tablet so there will be plenty of eerroars (like that oone. The spell check here is terrrrrrrribterrrrrrrrible.) and it won't be long cuz if I write to my ful full potential it will turn out too long....)
"Do you remember what you need Wolf?" The disguinished mascline voice asked. Wolf found herself gazing into those serious green eyes of Hiccup Haddock the 3rd. "No need to fuss Hiccup, it's not like this isn't my first mission." Wolf rolled her eyes. "I know i-it's just... oh nevermind." Hiccup stammered. "Mmmhm, yes dad." Wolf joked scarcasticly then turned placing both her hands on Arashi, her titan stormcutter. Hiccup sighed "Just... dont die." Wolf laughed "Not planning on it." Then she swung her legs up, it was a mighty awkard
strech to mount her dragon. Arashi was tall for a dragon. Perched ontop of her dragon she allowed Hiccup to hand her the satcel. Before he could open his mouth to say another word she was off Wolf always loved the thrill of flying, as she and Arashi climbed higher and higher into her sky the thrill only grew. Then the ascend stoped and they were calmly gliding over the sunlit world. Trees pasted underneath them in a green blur. This gave Wolf time to think for herself. SHe understood why Hiccup was so over protective of her, she was 5 years younger than he, but all the same, he knew she could take care of herself.
((NOTDONE!Sorry accidently pressed the send button))
Wolf grimanced as her boots hit the soft squishy sand. She was just off the shore of Mud Raker island, picking up her feet she shuffled twoard dry land. SHe hated how sand managed to get everywhere, in your boots, up your pants, in your eyes, it was nothing less than a nusence! She carefully pricked her way to the Archeologist's camp. Once she got there she paused looking around, yet he was no where to be found.
HIccup said he should be there, she needed some valuable information. "Arashi? See if you can find him." She asked her Stormcutter polietly.
Arashi shook her scaled then took flight all four wings pounding to gain alttitude. Wolf decided to sit down to wait for him. She sat cross legged in the dirt, she exiamed his impossibly small tent pitched up next to her. How could he even fit in that, Wolf's mind was to boggled by this fact that she hardly noticed the noise of footsteps next to her.
The sun began to set over the moutains casting and eerie golden glow over the archepeligo. Wolf sighed, her gut twisted with worry, Arashi nor Skulder (I think thats the archeologist's name) was no where to be seen. Shifting unconfortably in the sand Wolf resolved to watching the long shadows cast over the campsite
. Thats when she heard it. 'Squlish' Wolf perked up, what was that? 'Squash' Slowly she turned her head, in the lake two heads popped up. Glistening droplets of water rolled down their heads rippling the once smooth surface
of the now golden lake. 'Crunch' The creature came closer. Wolf bolted upright, the sudden movement caused her to grow feint, once her head was cleared the creature was closer then ever.
Careful not to make a sound, Wolf identified it as a Mud Raker. Slowly she backed up running through a mental checklist of what she
knew about these creatures.They are shy, don't like scary noises, not very hostile, very curious. She began to form a plan, make a lot of noise and scare it off. Simple as- WOlf gasped. As the creature fully emerged from the water she noticed that it wasnt two dragons, rather one. Just like a Zippleback it had two heads of different mindsets, unlike the ziipleback, it had four wings like a Stormcutter. WOlf decided to
call it the 'Hideous Mudcutter.' But now was no time for fun and games,this may be a new sub species of dragon. As her inner fishlegs emerged, she couldn't let this one n a lifetime oppertunity to go to waste.
Streching out her hand she stepped forward to this unknown creature, the first
step twoards and friendship that would last forever....
TADAAAAAAAA IK it was long but i got emersed in the story.Sorry for any typos, thanks.
The I'll put it in my siggy when I get to my computer
Can you reserve number 2 for me?
It's late where I live, but I'll try and write something up tomorrow.
Can I reserve nuber 5?
hold on yellow 2! just let me come up with a story.........
here is my form!
name: sploch and splatter
backstory: sploch and splatter were born into drago bludfist dragon army. they have known nothing but cruelty and hate their entire lives. when drago and his alpha were defeated, sploch and splatter were still in captivity, trapped in one of the many cages that held his army. they were only freed when hiccup and the dragon riders flew around drago's destroyed ships, setting free all of the captive dragons. but sploch and splatter didnt know how to live in peace with other dragons. when hiccup saw this, he asked sploch and splatter's trainer, pearl garmadon, to train them and show them how to live with ohter dragons in peace. and thats just what she did.
You know I reserve nuber 5 yes? And nuber 2 Is alerady reserved...
i just thought i would put my form out there just in case any of them were no longer being reserved. besides, it lets me practice my writing skills
No problem, but I want to adopt this dragon too. My computer turn off when I'm writing the story, egh xD. I will write something tomorrow but if I can't adopt number five I will try with number two... But I know it is reserved.
I SSSSSSOOOOO wanted number two. it so pretty! i think its the best of the bunch. i would have asked for that one but its already on hold. (i am always late for adoptions :P) oh well, thers always next time!
Dragon: Number 2, Pale Yellow
Names: Dune and Buttermilk
Gender: Female, but Dune is more of a tomboy while Buttermilk is more feminine.
It was a peaceful day when I met the odd dragon- the Hideous MudCutter they were calling her now. A genetically mutated version of the Mudraker with two heads, four wings, and two split tails. Her creamy yellow scales were softer than the usual Mudraker's thick hide, but aside from these differences she was no different from the rest of her species.
*WIP* (('Fraid I'm still short on time. I also have a sort of writer's block- I'm pleasantly surprised this turned out alright. I'll try to work on and finish it ASAP, but it still could be a while.))

Which Dragon are you Interested in?
Name: Forest and Autumn
Short Story: Valka and Cloudjumper flew off from Berk on search for new dragons when she landed upon Mudraker Island to check on the Mudrakers.
She didn't see any so she hit her staff on the rock by the mud lake and this rare to headed Mudraker surfaced above the mud and came to shore and stood there and Valka got off Cloudjmper and slowly aproached this magnificent beast.
Her eyes were wide with excitement as she found a new rare dragon, she also couldn't wait to share what she found with the rest of Berk.
She slowly walked and put her hand out to it and stayed calm and stopped a fiew inches away and waited. The dragon went toward her hand and hesitated a bit but then went and touched its nose on her hand and istantly bonded with her.
She smiled and gave the dragon a pet on the chin before she hopped back on Cloudjumper and took off back to Berk to share her discovery with Hiccup and the others.
Little did she know the dragon had followed her back to Berk and thats where it met me. She landed and got off Cloudjumper and ran to Hiccup and while she was talking to him I noticed this to headed dragon had followed her.
I tilted my head in wow and got cureous to know what sort of mood this dragon was in so I got closer to it as it landed and tried to coax it over to me but the dragon just gave a slight growl and waited for Valka to return.
After a while her and Hiccup came back out and seen that the dragon had followed Valka back. Hiccup saw me and knowing him he waved me over and I walked over to him and he then gave me the honor of training this awesome beast. He trusted me with the dragon and knew I could train it. My eyes widened and I looked at the dragon and attempted to walk up to it again. I stuck my hand out and waited for the dragon to respond.
The Mudraker hesitated again and walked closer to me and looked at Valka.
Valka smiled and motioned it with her staff to go to me. The dragon walked up to me and sniffed my hand and put its headunder my hand and made a bond with me then.
I smiled and seeing as it had to heads I named it Forest and Autumn because of the orangey yellow color of its skin. The dragon perked up at me and nudged me and I gave it a fish I had left over from fishing. The dragon ate it quick and nudged me again and I smiled and petted it more.
I knew I had made a new best friend and seeing as Hiccup trusted me to train such a rare beast I tok the honour and done so.
Now were the best of friends and Valka and Cloudjumper was happy knowing another great dragon had found its trainer.
The End :)
Interested in: #6 (( oh dear, just saw it was taken, could no have #10 instead? ))
Name: Muzgash and Orcobal
Story: Two minds, one body. Four wings, one dragon. One stomach, two appetites. The dragon was always hungry but they could never seem to find much of anything suitable save mud, which they unwisely ate in plenty. Their thoughts were mixed, sometimes cutting each other off or canceling each other out. One day, while feasting on mud, one of them felt sick. Oh don't be silly, said the other, what could possibly be wrong? The other said nothing and preceded to burp and said in his thoughts he felt awful. What? Poppycock! Said the other, I feel entirely alright! How could there possibly be anything wrong with you and nothing with... The head proceeded to feel the most awful stomach cramp, on second thought my dear chap, there might be something to that.
They struggled wearily out of the mudbank. They stretched out in the sun and moaned loudly, oh I feel terrible, what could have caused such a sudden bought of illness? The first head burped, and smelled mud. Oh don't be silly, mud is a staple of the diet of a healthy dragon, everyone knows... The other head starred at him, the second head looked down alright, perhaps..... I ah.... convinced myself of that. He felt another cramp, oh my what are we to do? It was their luck that in a nearby camp, a viking medic from Berk heard their cries. He was startled from his journal by a dragons cry. Could it be? A dragon in distress? He quickly extinguished his fire and strapped in his pack of supplies, and he followed the sounds of moans through the swamp. Parting some low hanging branches he was shocked to see two Mudrakers. He had to double check himself, one mudraker with two heads? He couldn't let himself get distracted. He cautiously approached the Dragon.
The second head looked up from his self pity to see a strange creature, what in the name of all humbug is this? The first head on the other hand, growled pitiously and put his nose into the outstretched hand of the human. The second scowled, what are you doing? Quit touching us! The creature smiled, "Well buddy, you're sick. I can help you but you need to be still." The first head burped again and rumbled amicably as the creature began feeling their stomach, the second head huffed, Well it obviously can't understand language. The weird creature gave a low whistle and mumbled, "What have you been eating?" The second sniffed, Mud. Just like any healthy balanced dragon. The creature removed a little jar from the thing on its back, and rubbed it on their stomach. The creature fed them some good smelling mush, and wrinkled his nose as he smelled their breath, "Mud?" The creature kept them company on their road to recovery, and they found themselves more fond of him every day. He named them, Muzgash and Orcobal, Orcs from the stories of his childhood, fallen from their original species. They accompanied him back to Berk after their complete recovery, and found out that we was a 'Human' and that his name was 'Earkenlang' he would always take them with him on his missions, but he never let them eat mud again.
Thank you!! Don't worry, ill make sure they eat a strict diet of fish from now on.
