Grea.

(Grea sits on a ledge in the Training Grounds, east of the Flight Club building. Penguin is curled up behind him. Grea looks slightly melancholy, and his axe and shield lie on the floor next to him.)

 

 

"Gah...It just can't keep happening like this..."

Vairen

[Stingray was on top of the arena like structure (fire ball frenzy), using the claws from their wings in the holes to climb up. On their back was Vairen, inspecting her crossbow for any damage. She gave their back a small pat and the two heads turned to face her.]

"What about you two? How are my girls fairing after that?" [She asked with a warm smile. Sting and Ray exchanges glanced before giving their rider tired but happy smiles. Vairen smiled back, taking out two fish from her satchel that they had caught a few minutes ago.]

Grea.

"Ahh...I don't know...well, no use sitting around here all day. Come on, Penguin."

(Penguin stands up as Grea turns to face him. Grea straps his axe and shield to his back and climbs into Penguin's saddle, and the two fly down onto the walkway leading into the main School area.)

Vairen

[Vairen's attention was caught by a Monstrous Noghtmare Titan going by. Vairen recognized them as the dragon who had helped them a few minutes prior. 
Stingray had been blasted by the ship with a net, and the Monstrous Nightmare had covered for them while Vairen freed her dragon.]

 should thank them- [She thought to herself.
Vairen whistled to her dragon and gestured towards the Monstrous Nightmare. The Seastormer let go of the side of the arena, falling for a second before beating their wings and flying around to follow the monstrous nightmare.]
"Hey-"

[she called to the Monstrous Nightmare's rider, trying to get his attention.]

Grea.

(Upon hearing sombody calling, Grea turned and saw a Seastormer flying behind him. Grea turned back, and he and Penguin flew to meet the Tidal class dragon.)  "Hello?" (Grea said, quizzically, to the Seastormer's rider.) "Oh!" (Grea exclaimed suddenly, remembering where he had seen them both before.) 

"It's you guys, from the fight! Hi."

[Vairen nodded.] "Just wanted to say thanks for the help back there-" [she said with a warm smile, sliding off her dragon's wing.] "It's Vairen, by the way- and that's Sting and Ray-" [Vairen added, holding out her hand to the other rider. Upon their names being announced, each head gave a small nod.]

Grea.

(Grea hops down, off Penguin's back.)

"Don't mention it. I know how it feels when your dragon is in danger."

(Grea looks up at Penguin.) "We've been in quite a few scrapes, haven't we, old friend?"

(Grea turns to face Vairen.) "My name is Grea...Grea Alkanson. This guy here is Penguin."  (He turns, and looks out over the harbour.)

"That fight...for a while there, I was worried."

[Vairen paused for a moment, remembering the fight earlier. She gave a small nod, staring off into the he the distance for a brief moment before turning her attention back to Grea.] "Luckily for us we our dragons saved the day-" [she said, giving a small pat on Stingray.]

"Yeah..." (Grea looks up at Penguin) "That was lucky." (He looks back out over the harbour)

"Still...I can't help feeling that we should be doing more for the defence of the School...not just relying of whichever dragon trainers happen to be around when the School's attacked. It...just doesn't feel like enough to me."

"Your right... I'm sure they would, but...should that be all we're relying on? The Chief and his friends coming to bail us out? When we could...oh, I don't know..."

(Gre turns to face Vairen)

"Well...what do you think about the idea of...some sort of defence force, for the School? Some way of ensuring that there would always be enough skilled dragon trainers on hand to protect the School from attacks by dragon hunters and similar."

"Actually, I was thinking more of the students...after all, we are already the ones who fight off attacks to the School...so mabye we should be a bit more organised about it. What do you think?"

[Vairen walked into the Great Hall, Stingray behind her. She sat down at a long table in a relaxed position, Stingray standing behind her. Vairen took out a few of her crossbow bolts and inspected them in the fire light, making sure they were still in good shape.]

"Oh! Yes, that reminds me...we need to decide, when we have a few more members, how are we going to run this force? Who will be in charge? Will any one person be in charge? Who'll make the desicions? But, anyway, no need to think about that just now...we need more people first. What do you about going recruiting?"

(Grea nods, stands up, packs up his stuff, then suddenly looks as if he's realized something, runs toward then end of the hall, befor coming back holding three mackerel in his hands.)

"Nearly forgot...there's usually at least one fish merchant here, and I told Penguin I'd get him some mackerel, so...still, shall we head to new berk then?"

"Sounds good to me-" (she said swinging onto Stingray's back.)

Life is a grain of sand floating in the custard of the universe.

(Grea throws the fish, one by one, into the air, and Penguin catches and eats them. When Penguin has finished, Grea hops up into the saddle.)

"Okay! Well then...to New Berk!"

(Penguin rises into the air, and begins flying toward New Berk.)

[StingRay followed the Monsteous Nightmare, lifting into the sky. Vairen smiled as the wind blew her hair. Stingray flew fairly low to the ocean, occasionally barely diving into the water- in an odd half swimming half flying pattern.] "How long you been with the Monstrous Nightmare?" [She called out to Grea]

[Vairen stayed silent for a moment- not knowing if Grea felt comfortable/was going to talk about it. She gently put her hand on Stingray's side, gesturing for the dragon to slow down slightly. She turned her attention towards Grea- curious]

"Shall I tell them, Penguin?"

(After moment, Penguin gives an affirmative growl. Grea turns back to Vairen, as Penguin slows to match Stingray's speed.)

"Okay...it's a long story...do you want the full version, or the shortened one?"

"Well...I'll give you the short version. I resuced Penguin from Dragon Hunters when they attacked the island we lived on... however, Penguin had three siblings...they were captured before I could get to them...we have no idea where they are now."

(Penguin stares, solemnly, into the distance.)
