Ripred - rumblehorn

"Lockjaw, I need you to help me escort these dragons to a place where we can hold them until this mess is sorted out." Ripred said. He looked at the other dragons. "And I don't want to hear any complaints!"

He then saw Blóðraugr come out from behind a boulder and ask about this other screaming death.

"Ah Blóðraugr just the dragon I hoped for. I too want to learn more about this other screaming death, but right now I need you to help me escort these dragons to a place where we can keep them till we sort everything out."

((Sorry that I haven't posted, my computer shut down and I just ordered a replacement will be here Thursday, so I'll try and post regularly after that))
 
I nodded at Mid's orders, saluted, and flew up to my favorite perch on the island. It was higher than most, and wide enough for my entire squad to meet on. Which was why I was here. I called my usual call, then added two shorter roars, Come now, Alpha's orders.
My squad all appeared quickly, all of them were among the fastest and most vigilant in all the islands.
"Yes, what is it Stryker?"
"Yes, what had Alpha Mid called us for?"
I quickly explained the situation to them
"Perfect, a strange dragon insults the Alpha and we have to stop them from....what? Calling him bad names?"
I untwisted and retwisted my tails in frustration. Storm was loyal, and a good fighter, but the would snark as long as the lifeblood flowed in her veins.
"Now we must find this insulter and bring him to the AlphaPrince, or we will not have peace, one crime ignored incourages more."
The young ones nodded and one, a small razorwhip with an extra long tail spoke up.
"I've seen a new-not-from-here-odd one around here, a cyan Mistmaker."
"Yes, me too, a strange new-not-from-here-odd one, but an orange Death Singer rock shooter."
"The word is amber." Storm drawled lazily, bored with the conversation.
I sighed and tried to reach the Alpha
AlphaPrince, we have seen strange not-from-here-winged ones, a Mistmaker and Amber-breath
I waited for Mid's response and glanced around. Many others were flying around and a large group of winged ones from my pack below, along with more strange winged nes, none of them that I recognized.
"How is Rhei?"
The question startled me a bit. Storm's bored look was gone as she focused solely on me. "Is she doing okay?"
I could have sworn I heard concern in her voice, which wasn't too odd, at least where Rhei was concerned.
"She's fine, asleep. I left the Nightflyers with her, so she's safe."
Storm relaxed again.
Rhei had been her human first, and the two had been close friends, seeing much together, the skrill still appeared some, always faithful to our two-legger, but Rhei had sensed her need to roam, and so had let her leave.
I remembered how sad they both were. Rhei had too many winged flock-mates to take care of, she couldn't travel much anymore. But of course Storm was still her heartfriend, that would never change. No matter what Rhei said, she owned our hearts.
And that gave me hope, even when our Alpha was mad, or when my pack almost all died, Rhei's owning my heart gave me comfort.
 
 
(I hope that will do, will post more soon.))

"Now." The skrill said,

"Now." The skrill said, turning his head towards Sharptooth. "Who shall we use?"

 

Sharptooth slid her tail against the ground, thinking. "It would have to be a someone important to him, but not a regular dragon... only if we could get his old owner. Hmm actually... you could." She thought about it some more. "Originally I'd suggest we'd use the Bewilderbeast, but he's too large for this. I mean I'm not sure even if a sting could effect it, and I'm pretty sure a Bewilderbeast could eat you for breakfast."

 

the Skrill's eyes glimmered. "So where does this owner live? I'm interested..."

 

Sharptooth shook her head. "I don't know, and I can't get there. But someone must know, perhaps you can ask? Oh, that's right. The Bewilderbeast knows. Go and ask him, because you know. It helps."

 

the skrill grinned, "so when should I ask him? Soon?" He gave Breakneck and Lightning a dazzling smile, which caused Lightning to hide behind his brother. "I'd need to ask casually however..."

Blóðraugr and Unknown Dragons~

The intruding dragons stopped dead in their tracks when they saw  emerge from behind the rocks, with a smirk plastered on her face. The Moldruffle tried to act cool, but it was clearly evident in he's eyes that he was scared. "Ah  Blóðraugr, just the dragon I hoped for. I too want to learn more about this other Screaming Death, but right now I need you to help me escort these dragons to a place where we can keep them till we sort everything out." Ripred said. "What?! I am NOT going anywhere with that thing!" The red Night Terror exclamined, surprising Blóðraugr. "Oh but I don't think you have much of a choice. You're coming, wether you like it or not." Her voice suddenly darkened. The Stormcutter gulped, and the Night Terror shrunk down. The Changewing just stared at her, not really knowing what to do. After a few moment of no one saying anything, she broke the silence. "Anyway, I'll be off with our little guests to a place where I know they won't get out of. My nest. And after that, I shall be heading out to Tusjk's place. Apparently he rammed down one of the walls in his nest, and needs repairment." she summed up quickly, before flashing an overly kind smile to the petrified dragons. "Oh don't worry. There shouldn't be any rodents living in the cells, I think. Been such a long time I've had to keep anyone in there. Oh, and don't expect escaping to be easy. I designed my home myself after all.". Giving Rán a little glance, she turned back at the group before her. "Well, what are you waiting for, get moving already!" she slightly yelled the last part, causing the invador dragons to whimper.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

"You're seriously gonna leave us alone?! In this lighting?!" The Moldruffle yelled from behind the thick dragon-proof bars. The cell they had been put in not only was small and cramped, but almost completely pitch dark. "You can breathe fire, you're a dragon for goodness sake!" Blóðraugr yelled back, annoyance slipping into her voice. The intrudors had been a nonstop annoyance to her the moment they took off. In the end she had to keep them in her mouth for the time they were flying. And having dragons move around in your mouth, is not an experience she is going to be wanting to go through again in the near future. "I can't keep on burning up fire forever!" he whined, seriously this dragon's acting like a tiny-tooth who didn't get the Dragon Nip they wanted after their parents said they had eaten too much of it. "What did you think your stay here was going to be like? Like you are the alpha of the colony? I'm slowly starting to think you don't know the meaning of the word "prisoner" at this point." she huffed angrily at him. But he just continued on with his rant. "I'm valuable information! Not just something to be thrown around with, I swear-" he was cut off by the bars being hit with such a force that they bent inwards. Blóðraugr was staring at him, anger written all over her face. She had hit the bars with her tail, and the tunnels echoed the clanging across the entire island. Slowly approaching the cage, her expression kept darkening the closer she got. And when she finally came to the cage, the slimmer part of her tail quickly rushed through the bars, and gripped the Moldruffle in a bone-crushing hold. "Now listen to me, rare. If it weren't for Ripred's commands to make sure you're unharmed, I would not hesitate to put you through the worst nightmares not even your petty mind could comprehend. I've seen things you never have, and never will. I've done things you never have, and never will. I've been through things you never have, and never will. You think that other Screaming Death looked scary? You can be glad for your LIFE I'm not the dragon I used to be. And I can tell you, that dragon still exists within me.". Blóðraugr's eyes weren't the same with that friendly tint to them, instead they were cold and d.ead looking. Her expression was cold as well, her spikes raised sligtly more than usual, her wings slightly open, and her tail gripping the Moldruffle so hard that it was hard for him to breathe. The other dragons were cramped up against the corners of the room, looking at her terrified. It took a moment for her to realize what she was doing, and when she did, she let go. The Moldruffle gasped for air, and the other dragons quickly approached him to make sure he was okay. Sighing, she left the room.

I sat there listening  to the others talk I clapped my wings in frustration, but also to get their attention.

"Alright, we cannot say vthat this is the fault of those though, there are many non-pack members that fly around here, those three Loud Bellows, the Shock Wing, the Sea Feared, and the found Amber Shooter, but they are friends of the Alpha Prince, who. One to visit.Not to harm."

"You all know how I hateto disagree," Storm said,her voice dripping with sarcasm, "But I've seen both the Flightmare and the Deatg Song.And they are strangers to the nenest, not any friendsfriends of Mid's. Not to menmention that they fly awful close to his arie."

I sighed, Stormjust loved showing off her fancy speech which she had picked up in her time with Rhei, I spoke like other dragons new to the saddle, without two legger words and phrases. those who had Longtime Rider/Partners spoke like her, others spoke simply, they didn't have much experience, but still more then me.

"Very well, I will see that the Alpha Prince hears about this."

I reached out with my mind.

Alpha? can you hear me? There are twotwo strange wings near your home, we tthink they might bebe related to the iinsult of your Arie.

He heard the mind of Stryker calling out for Mid. 'The Alpha has left to hunt' he replied. 'He should return within two suns. I will have many know of the mist and amber'

I sighed as I felt the Great Tusks mind reach mine, instead of the alpha's.

Thank you.

I turned to my crew. "The Alpha Prince is going to behold, he asks for us to repeat our fly a rounds more often,travel in pairs and report to me if you see anything, or reach for the Alpha, he is out hunting now, but the Great Tusks is still listening."

My crew all flapped their wingszina sign of agreement and took to the sky,

"I'm going to visitRhei." Storm announced, "you coming?"

I sighed, for one moment I had been greatful for the normal speech of a dragon from the Great Tusks, but know Storm was here using her human-style talk.

"No. I need to look for the strange-wings, to ask them about the dishonor done tour Alpha."

Storm grunted. "Good. I wanted some time alone with her."

I shook my head, but Storm rarely made sense to me.

Lore Information

Why 'Rare' is such a terrible insult:

Dragons pride themselves on physical power and sometimes intellect. The more of your race, the better you survive, and therefore the more powerful you inheritly are.

Rare means to be few in numbers- and by calling a dragon rare you are implying that they are weak and cannot survive. While humans value rare things and think it is a good thing, to dragons it's the equivilant of calling them the worst slur you can imagine, and meaning it

Hawk the Triple Stryke
I flew through the eerie cave, faster and faster, the distance underground must be great-- very great indeed. I was  most likely underneath the ocean and if the walls cave in and gave way to seawater, there would be no one to save or hear me, except my prince, and he was out. I flew on, I thought to Ripred: 
"Ripred, if you can hear me, I am underground deep underground, I found a tunnel,  i asssume I am below the trench as of now, could you send backup just in case I encounter the Screaming Death?"
I continued to fly onward, the flames coming from my mouth emit an eerie glow on the walls, flickering lighter and darker as it would in any other cave, however it made me feel frightened something did not feel right,still on I flew.
 When I got there I saw what looked to be...
 
((Until the next clue, be in suspense! XD))

Tusjk and Midnight

(Tusjk)

He reached out with his mind to as many as he could- it had been an age since he had tried to hold so many at once, even without a resistance in them. 'Dragons of Midnight' he greeted, 'know that outsiders of the races of Flightmares and Deathsongs, Mistwings and Ambertongues, are to be greeted with higher caution'

There was a mix of confusion from the mass of minds, a few stronger ones asking why. 'Only suspicion of the desicration' was all he could say.

Retreating to himself again, the old dragon tried to stand, but his legs gave out beneath him. Collapsing back into the water with a massive wave, he rested his tusk on a spire of ice jutting out from the wall- large callouts exhausted him.

 

 

(Midnight)

Finally he had made it out past the minds of the nest and into the true wilds. The Archipelago was open, vast oceans quiet and free, also teaming with fish. No one knew where he was. No one was talking to him. For the first time in months, possibly a year, that his head was completely clear.

"Hail friend!"

A dissapointed sigh escaped his jaws. Glancing back, he saw the owner of the voice- a massive orange and blue Typhoomerang, familiar young face alight with joy. "Torch? How long has it been!"

"Long enough! What are you doing out here, Toothless?"

"Just... clearing my head"

Torch chuckled. "Must be a hard thing to do, ey? Being an alpha and all!"

"Heheh! Yeah, yeah it is..."

"But I have come to telly you something"

His mood dropped. "Like what?"

"Someone's rounding up your old, ah, friends"

"What do you mean?"

"All the dragons you had fun with in your adventuring days? Some dragon has somehow convinced a bunch of them to group up- against you"

"Well, maybe you can tell me more later. I'm out for a break, after all"

"Yeah, but be careful"

Torch turned away, and Mid was left over empty ocean once more.

Blóðraugr, Rán, and Tusjk~

Flying out of the enterance of her home, Blóðraugr was hit from a message from Tusjk. It was something about Midnight being away at the moment, as well as to be cautious of outsider Death Song's and Flightmare's. Asking why, she was only met with a response which didn't satisfy her. Huffing, she went to meet up with Rán, and then started flying towards Midnight Cove.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

When they arrived Tusjk was just laying down in the water, not bothering to stand up or move at all. Rán immediately assumed something was wrong, and raced down to meet his eyes. "Tusjk, are you alright?! What happened? Do you need healing? Are your bones still intact?!" She was having a small panic attack, her imagination going wild on what could have possibly happened. Tusjk chuckeled weakly, cutting her off on her thought process. "Rán, I'm not hurt if that's what you mean. I'm just tired. Reaching out to that many dragons at the same time just simply isn't as easy as it used to be" He said, giving Rán a weak, but reassuring smile. She calmed down a little bit, but her mind refused to stop worrying about him. At this point Blóðraugr decided to cut in. "Tusjk, I apologize if I'm interrupting anything, but I belive that we have a wall in need of repairment, of which I would like to discuss about" she approached him politely. He turned his head to look at her, raising a nonexistant eyebrow. "Very well. Rán, would you mind if we talked later?". Rán nodded, and Tusjk smiled. "Good. Hopefully this won't take long". And with that, Rán was flying away from Midnight Cove, leaving her two closest friends behind. 

((Now I'm pretty much just going to be roleplaying with Rán, so if anyone wants to interact with her, now's the perfect time!))

I felt like I needed to clear my head, just as the Alpha must be doing at this very moment. I flew towards the sight of the Midnight Den, somehow, it calmed me, even in trouble I had a pack, and friends, right there when I needed them. Rhei had always been there for me, of course, but though I dearly love her, she isn't as strong as my other packmates, not with her wings and legs, but bher heart... Yes that's strong. Stronger then that of any dragon I had ever known.

 

Just as I was flying past the Great Tusk's den, I saw a younger winged one fly out of it. I didn't recognise her, but her scent markings said that she was part of the herd, and a friend of GreatTusk. I landed near her and tried to do the nice teeth baring thing that Rhei did when she met new humans. It felt like I was snarling.

"Hello there."

 

((OK, he is talking to Ran. BTW what kind of dragon is she?))

Rán~

"Hello there".

An unfamiliar voice spoke to her, and she whipped around to meet the face of a Triple Stryke, barring his teeth at her. She could smell that he was indeed a part of Midnight's colony, which made the big grin he was pulling off a bit less nervvracking. Gathering up the courage to speak, she opened her mouth. "Hello there. Do you perhaps need healing? Or is someone else in need of help?" She asked, concern slightly slipping into her voice. It is her job to make sure everyone is kept all patched up, after all.

((Rán is a Prickleboggle/Tide Glider hybrid))

"No, no winged one has been hurt, but I am a beta (cani use that term here?) And did not recognise you, I like to remember who my pack mates are. it is good that you are a plant user fixer. We have so few of them, winged ones who can. The two letters manage well enough, but it is a comfort to know you are here too."

I smiled the way a normal dragon would, Rhei's way was weird, she made it look so , so, I do not know the two legged word, but like sparkling rocks, the color of the sky, the trees in leafdown time, things that make you be in wonder, that are nice to see.

I relised I was drifting, I waited for the  crossbreed to talk again.

 

((BTW, he means no offence by "crossbreed" that is just his way of talking about that sort of dragon))

Rán~

Rán smiled back at him when he explained his behaviour. "Yes, there are indeed only a handful of us who are capable of healing others. I'm also glad to hear that you are alright". She stopped herself for a minute, thinking about what to say next. On one hand, or flipper, in her case, she would like to know how the investergation on the crime is progressing. On the other, she wants to know more about his work, and if she can help in any way. After a moment of thought, she decided, and turned her gaze back to the Stryke. "Say, I've only heard a few rumors floating around about what has happened, but I don't know the full details. You see, I first arrived at the nest after being gone for two weeks after the supposed lash-out of the Prince" she summerized, looking hopefully at him.

Ripred - rumblehorn

"Good, if I capture any more out packers or trespassers, however you want to put it, I will bring them over." Ripred said to the screaming death as it left. He then flew off to look around on the other islands. He got a message from Tusjk about a flight mare and a death song. He spotted the flight mare in the distance, he snuck up on it and brought it to the ground.

 

'Tusjk I have the flightmare! He called out with his mind.' The he roared at the flightmare "who are you, and who do you serve?!"

 

"I serve Valityre!" It yelped, it then sprayed the mist at Ripred and escaped, he received a call from Hawk in his mind.

 

'get out of there pup! I'll be there soon as possible!" He barked through his mind. Once the mist wore off then he flew over to where Hawk had told him to go.

I saw a dead and.. another one. However this one was really forced with death song amber and had a glowing bottle of Flightmare mist in it, a glowing mist was all over the ground and before I knew it my wings were beating slower and slower, I fell to the ground and started one sentence to all before I fell into a deep, deep slumber.. "help, mist slee.!" I Was Fast asleep, my dreams Were Full Of Screaming Deaths And Nightmare s.

Ripred - rumblehorn

When Ripred arrived at the island Hawk had told him to go to. Ripred looked above the island. "Hawk you hatchling!" He growled. He landed and went down the tunnel. Following Hawks scent, he smelled several other scents which made him extremely cautious. He soon came upon a place that smelled strongly of flightmare mist. He spotted Hawk, frozen in the mist. "You hatchling, I said get out of there! What do you do? You go deeper in there!" Ripred growled at Hawk,

 

He ripped out some long roots and flicked it a bit like a whip, it wrapped around the tails on hawk. Ripred slowly pulled him out of the mist area, and waited for him to wake up.

I woke up, i could still hear during the time that I was frozen but i could not move, I   retort to Ripred, "in all honesty by the time you responded I was already there, just saying." I brush myself off and fly in place, "So what is next, should we maybe get some samp, especially from the mist in the cave, we might be able to tell who did it. So, what are we doing next?" I repeated after my long question.

 "You shouldn't even had gone in there before anyone came! Did you think that because you were a triple stryke that nothing could stop you?! Well guess what! Things can take you out! So don't go prancing around like your invincible!" Ripred was practically yelling. "We are going to get out of here. You are not going anywhere else alone. And I am bringing a flightmare from the colony to help me out. Got it?" He looked at the Amber and dragon bones. "If you do something like that again you will have wished that death song had gotten to you."

I am visibly upset, with a wavering voice i say, "no I do not think I am invincible, I thought I could help put for once, but I see I am no longer needed here..." and with that I begin to fly out of the cave.

He spent the next few hours fishing and resting in the surf, but after what Torch had said he couldn't take his mind off the nest once more. There was just this constant itch, a feeling that he shouldn't be away this long. It had only been two days, and besides, it wasn't like a few hundred dragons and Vikings couldn't take care of themselves!

But still... he had run into some rather colourful characters over the years, per say, and that was excluding the ones he had made peace with afterwards.

Dammit. But just to check in he thought to himself, and took off back to the Isles.

Midnight

Finally he arrived at the Isles. The return of the droning of hundreds of minds was almost comforting, but there were a few unfamiliar ones in the crowd- from Blodraugr's island.

Few dragons had entire islands to themselves but when it comes to a Screaming Death... it was kind of a neccesity. He dove into the vast cave network, tunnels more than wide enough to fly freely through.

The minds were off guard- he easily tuned in to them, picking up every honest thought and word.

'Why are we even in here?'

'Just passing through, and BAM. Jailed by a Scream!'

'So much for friendliest nest around'

'Hello, friends' he said to them.

There was an amusing burst of panic and confusion. He reached the cell far in the caves, a small wild pack huddled crankily in the shadows. "What brings you lot down here?" Midnight asked jokingly.

"Oh, finally! A dragon who might actually listen to us" the Stormcutter shouted.

"Prince and Alpha, we have been-" the Night Terror started.

"I know, I know. You have nothing to do with this. Just a misunderstanding by my bretheren, I'm sure" Midnight interrupted, chuckling quietly to himself.

'Blodraugr...' he called out. 'Who got you to jail up this lot?'

Blóðraugr, Panicing Treadtail and Rán~

Suddenly from out of nowhere, a blue Threadtail landed beside them, huffing and eyes wide open from panic. Rán immeditely went to make sure the dragon was alright. "Breathe, breathe. Don't snort fire at me" she tried calming down the dragon, which surprisingly worked. When he had finally calmed down, he winced a bit. "I-I was attacked by a Skrill, and I'm pretty s-ure they don't belong to the nest" he explained, showing his left wing and his tail. The wing had slight electrical burn marks visible, and the tail was scratched up a bit. Rán nodded, and started healing his wing with some healing mist, and the tail with the saliva, which he was a bit grossed out of. When she was done, she took one more look over him to make sure he had no more injuries. None. That was a good sign. "Can you recall what the Skrill looked like?" she tried asking him. He just shook his head. "No, I was too caught up in the fact that it was attacking me. That's also why I think it doesn't belong to the nest" he summerized, taking a look at his healed wing and tail. Humming she thought about the situation. "Well, either way we have to report this to Tusjk. This could perhaps be a clue on finding out who vandalized Alpha's nest. Follow me" She said, and took off into the air, the Treadtail close behind her.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

While Blóðraugr and Tusjk were talking about possible reinforcement to the ice fortress, she suddenly received a message from the Prince. 'Blodraugr...' he called out. 'Who got you to jail up this lot?'. Blóðraugr immediately knew who he ws reffering to. 'Midnight, Lockjaw, Ripred and Hawk caught these dragons trespassing on your land, talking about a fully white Screaming Death hanging around nearby. And the yalso mentioned a Death Song guarding said Scream. I happened to arrive at the scene, and got orders from Ripred to put them somewhere safe for the time being, until this was all sorted out. And not long after Tusjk broadcaster a message telling us to be wary of outsider Mistwings and Ambertongues, you can probably figure out what species of dragons he was talking about. You can probably see where I'm getting with this'. As Blóðraugr continued to be unaware of her surroundings, Tusjk decided to hear who she was talking to. It was Midnight. He wasn't ready to talk to the dragon yet, so he retreated back out of the conversation. 'I am at the moment at Tusjk's place if you want to seek after me. As to where Ripred and Hawk are, I have no idea'. She ended the conversation to meet Tusjk's face, which was slightly frowning at the moment. "You alright there Tusjk?" she asked. He noticed that he was being adressed, and quickly wiped off the frown, and turned towards the Screaming Death. "Yes, I am fine. Now, let's continue shall we?". Blóðraugr nodded, and continued on where she left off. She knew better than to pry further about how he was lying, and terribly. That was something Rán was way better at doing.

'Alright, I'll have a chat to them later. But just remember that if we treat every newcomer like this we might have a hard time getting new nestmembers in the future'

After releasing and negotiating with the group, he headed back to his den.

The inscriptions still stung. 'Midnight? Back so soon?' Tusjk asked.

'Met up with an old friend... some rumour of an uprising of sorts'

Midnight sighed, and started burning the markings away with a concentrated jet of plasma.

I flew as fast as I could, my wings flapping with all of their might.

"Get back here!" Ripred barked. He sped up as much as he could. He was going to make sure that hawk got back without doing any more foolish things.

A shock wing? Attacking my packmates? I followed Ran and the other winged one, "You say this shock wing attacked you, where were you flying? What where you doing? Where did it go?" I could sense that Ran was annoyed with me for all the questions to her healing needed, but I was a beta, I needed to know so I could defend, oh the my old Alpha would've killed me for not preventing this! I stretched my wings and waited for answers, ignoring Ran's scowls.

((Cat's going to be inactive for a while so I'll be posting for them until they get back))

 

Sharptooth waited on a more secluded island than usual, and sure enough the dark shape of the Skrill descended from the clouds. She grinned greedily. “So? Did it work? When do we start? What will-”

“Stop” he commanded sternly.

She was taken aback. How could even a Skrill have the audacity to command her around like a child still!? “Excuse me?”

The Skrill started pacing- the first time she had seen his stone-like confidence waver. “The plan is off- there won’t be an attack, not for a long time yet”

“You’re backing out? Now!?” Sharptooth snarled, tail raising.

“We never should have even started it!” he yelled.

Behind her, Breakneck and Lighting took a step back. Cowards. Scraping her claws along the ground, she stood up as tall as she could. “Just because you think you’re some high and mighty lightning-wielding beast, doesn’t mean I won’t hesitate to sting you and leave you to drown!”

The Skrill shook his head, locking eyes with her. “If you truly want to continue, by all means. But if that Fury or the Bewilderbeast are so much as touched, you’re fair game to the Snake”

“Who?” Lightning piped up, curious.

“Let’s just say that I would wish you the luck and speed of a god when the very ground under you is trying to grind you into fishpaste”

She started thinking. If there was something out there being a master to the Skrill, and even scaring him, then maybe she should heed this warning. For now.

“Fine. But I only have so much patience. What now?”

He checked their surroundings. “Stay low until we say otherwise. Keep track of the Alpha’s movements- both of them- and if you step out of line, then the deal is off. No new pack. No territory. And no you”

Sharptooth blinked. “Was that a threat!?” she demanded.

But the Skrill had already taken off. Growling, she turned back to the brothers. “What do we do now?” Lightning asked.

“What he said” she huffed angrily.

“Wait, you mean-”

“Yes! Unless he and whoever he serves takes too long, we will serve them to. Believe me, if the payout promised by the end of this wasn’t so… sweet, I would have dumped his frozen form into the sea! But we have to be smart about this- smarter than him and the ‘Snake’”

The other two nodded in agreement. They might be fools sometimes, but at least she knew that they would be loyal to the end.

Rán, calmed down Threadtail~

The Threadtail was thinking hard about the questions the Stryke was presenting him, while Rán was glancing daggers at Stryker. Her patient did not need to experience any more stress than he already had. But, the voice of the dragon reminded her to return to reality. "Well, I was flying near the mines when the Skrill attacked. I was there to help a friend look for her little hatchling who had gone missing, and said that she usually ventures into the tunnels. And as for where the Skrill went, I'm not sure. It seemed like it was flying towards the South Island, but It could have tried to escape somewhere else. It flew right into the clouds before I could see where it really went" he said.  

((Thanks for bumping Rosemary))

I took in the information before thanking Threadtail, "Thank you, I will look at this strange thing myself. Please tell our packmates to stay in their safe-homes until we know it is safe to fly around again.I will look-see this strange thing." I took of to find a friend of mine, who knew the area and dragons well, she had also met a shockwing , and knew how to deal with them. I knew Storm, but it wasn't the same, Storm had known two leggers for a long time. This one might not have even seen them.

......................................

I flew alongside the spinetail,Storm fly, she was one oif the alphas old packmates, from when they too had two leggers. We talked about shockwings, and the old mines.

"Humans used to look for bright stones and black rocks there. But it has been years since any but your riders have worked in them. They mostly house bats and small nightterrors now."

I took in the information as we flew, telling her what I had heard and what I knew about our now problem.

When we reached the old mines we landed and walked around. the air smelled strange, like dea.th. I felt uneasy, and I could tell Stormfly felt the same way. We walked Dow. The long tunnels, sniffing the air, looking for a reason for the skrill to have been here.

That's when I saw it, and Storm fly saw it a second after. A hatchling trapped in ambertongues amber! And not far from it, the ambertongue itself just down the passage! Stormfly flew to cover the hatchling, and I flew at the ambertongue itself. No doubt this was the one my wing watchers had seen with the mistmaker! 

I lunged with my tails, managing to get in a good blow to her side, the second tail, she would feel like she was burning in no time, but vthat no time only happened after she succeeded in shooting at me.

"Stryker! Run!" I heard Stormfly call to me. I ran, but the amber closed around my tails, weighing me down enough that the ambertongue goyt in a good bite or two before it flew over my head and out of the cave.

Stormfly held the hatchling in her claws as we flew back to outpr nest. "I know that deathsong."

"You do?" I asked, struggling to keep up as I tried to fly with my tails bound together by amber. Stormfly  noticed and slowed her pace, "Yes, from when my human and I journeyed with the others. That one tried to ki.ll us. But Kid's human saved all of us.I think that's the same one, but hat is it doing here?" We exchanged a worry look. "Let's talk to the alpha prince." I said.

 We flew to the nest of the alpha, who was burning awaybthe insult left on the wall. "Alpha, we have found the ambertongue, Storm fly says that you know this one from your human-travel days." We explained what happened to him.

Midnight

He listened to their story. "Stormfly, can I speak to you for a moment?"

She stepped in close to his side, an air of concern about her. "What's up, Toothless?" Stormfly whispered.

"I don't think this is coincedence"

"I thought I was supposed to be the paranoid one"

"No joke- I had a day off not too long ago, ran into Torch. Said something has been getting our old enemies together. I thought it might just be mistaken identity or dragons moving island, but..."

Sotmfly nodded in agreement. "Now who would be crazy enough to go near a wild Deathsong, let alone win him over?" she asked.

"And a Skrill, a white Screaming, and a Flightmare have also been reported. According to my warriors the... 'culprit' of this" Midnight continued, gesturing to the walls, "was a gray Whisper. At least on the wings"

Stormflies quills rattled slightly when she looked at the grafitti. "No news or anything remotely like this back home. The wildest thing that has happened this season was an ill-tempered Quaken"

Midnight was in deep thought for a moment. Then an idea hit him. "Stryker!" he exclaimed, turning to the Tryple Stryke. "How do you feel about boats?"

Ripred - rumblehorn

 Ripred noticed the flightmare following him, he shouted to hawk "get over here Hawk, there's a flightmare following us."

He turned towards the flightmare. "What do you want?" He growled.

"Please! I need protection!" The flightmare begged.

"How do I know I can trust you?"

"Please! I will serve your alpha, I promise." The flightmare looked around nervously.

"I will bring you to the second in command. What is your name?"

"Aetherna. And thank you!"

"Well Aetherna come with me." Ripred called out to tusjk. "I am bringing you a flightmare who wants to join the colony"
