Rizzo stared for a few seconds then asked "Did. Did you just say a paradox? Don't those things hurt a lot of AI's heads? .....When they even have heads of course. What is it in other AIs that don't have heads? Just their consciousness I guess.

Hypergoof.

Seen here with a snow nadder and a statue Termite gave her because she couldn't sell it.

(Wiggles bit it's left arm off.)

Below is my profile pic made bigger to show the amazing detail

It's Hypergoof going berserk with a durian mace.

(Drawn by my amazing sister)

(She even drew the fur on the shoes)

            (My in game character)- A friendly young Viking who interacts better with dragons than with people. This is partly because although she now lives on Berk her family was originally from the Berserker tribe. When Dagger came to power Hypergoof, her sister and her parents were forced to flee as they were terrified of their new chief after he threatened to kill Hypergoof's parents for speaking out. The family found a new home on Berk. After working hard to get the Hooligans (what Hiccup's tribe was called in the books) to trust her (mostly) Hypergoof got a job working at a dragon rehabilitation center which is part of the reason she knows so many dragons. Hypergoof has a few problems. One, she is terrified of hot things. (A problem I myself have) She will not touch any stoker class dragons as a result. (With the exception of two individuals) She will still try to help a injured stoker as long as she doesn't have to touch it. Her other problem is also based on one of mine. I am Hypersensitive to sound and certain noises hurt me. Hypergoof has this too but in her the pain can cause her to go Berserk. One of the worst noises is whistling. She will attack anyone who does it near her. (Note this does not mean that I will fire troll those who's character whistles in game. It is a character trait for role playing and storytelling only.) Hypergoof also can't stand large crowds for too long. She will often retreat if things get too noisy. Hypergoof is a good fisher and farmer but a horrible fighter. (Unless she goes Berserk in which case she may get hurt but will do significant damage to her opponent.) She is generally friendly unless she gets stressed out in which case she becomes snappy. Most of her friends are dragons. Because of this Hypergoof has picked up dragoneese and speaks it quite fluently.

 

 

 

 

Littlebird (Hypergoof's sister) and Hypergoof's parents don't have much back story at the moment. None are in game.

 

 

Termite- Is one of Hypergoof's few human friends. (She is in game now as HypersFriendTermite. The chances of seeing her are low though. If seen she will probably be with Wiggles.) She is a woodworker hence the name. She didn't trust Hypergoof when they first met but soon found that they had a lot in common. She is the true trainer of Wiggles but often leaves him with Hypergoof when she must work on something.  Hypergoof and Termite like to take dragon food out into the wilderness ware they wait to see what shows up. A pass time they lovingly call dragonwaching.

 

 

 

 

Wiggles 

(wants to chew on Mildew's new chair just off camera)

(FUN FACT: Mildew is one of the only people Wiggles doesn't like)

            A young rambunctious whispering death with a sweet heart but a naughty mind. Hypergoof's friend Termite adopted him as a baby when his whole family was killed by dragon slayers. Unlike most of his species Wiggles could be described as... cuddly. He wants to be friends with everyone he meets and seems completely oblivious to his size and appearance. He simply does not understand that he is scary and is baffled that some people won't play with him or give him a hug. His best friend growing up was Termite's mutt of a dog Drool, and Wiggles learned the odd habit of waging his tail from his canine friend. Most dignified dragons (especially whispering deaths) are appalled by the behavior but no amount of laughing at Wiggles or begging him to stop for the sake of dignity will change anything. Wiggles simply doesn't care. All that matters to him is how much fun he's having. He will even allow himself to be dressed up for snoggletog and will parade around in the Jingle bells and antlers with pride. (As seen here.) Wiggles is an all around charming and sweet creacher but he is not without flaws. He can not be left alone for more than five minutes or else he will chew on something, especially furniture. Usually damaging it beyond repair. He can not be taken to a marketplace because the concept that Termite "hasn't bought that yet and so he shouldn't eat it" is something he can not seem to grasp. Nore is the one that "That doesn't belong to us!" Termite has taken to carrying a bag of dried mutton strips (Mutton is Wiggles's favorite) to redirect the serpent's attention if she catches him with the look in his eyes that she learned to recognize as his "I'm going to chew on that" face. Despite her best efforts Wiggles is a hand full and Termite often leaves him with Hypergoof if she has to go do some woodworking. Wiggles thinks of Termite as his mother but he thinks of Hypergoof as a friend and enjoys playing with her. Hypergoof shows no fear towards him at all and will even let Wiggles hug her if he asks permission first. (Hypergoof does not like being touched without warning but will happily accept a hug from a friend.) Interestingly Hypergoof found that Wiggles is a very good racer despite his poor eyesight.

 

 

 

Cuteseepie

(Relaxing at home)

          The first dragon Hypergoof ever rescued and one of her closest friends. He is a Pink and Blue deadly nadder. When he was a hatchling his curiosity got the better of him. He wandered away from his nest in the dead of winter and found himself lost in a blizzard which would have been the end of him if he hadn't stumbled onto the front lawn of Hypergoof's house. His crys alerted the family who quickly took him in out of the cold and thus saved his life. Cuteseepie and Hypergoof have been friends ever since. Cuteseepie has a mellow gentle nature broken up occasionally for excitement at an adventure. He will defend Hypergoof or if need be prevent her from attacking someone who whistled. His level headedness balances out against Hypergoof's goofyness rather nicely. 

 

 

 

Ziggy

(Showing off again)

          A skrill that Hypergoof found injured while dragon watching. Her success in helping him helped her get the job she currently has and also built up a friendship between Hypergoof and Ziggy. It probably helped that Ziggy is not a very old skrill, only having just left his parents, before somehow getting hurt. Much like a cat Ziggy tries to be more dignified than he really is. One moment showing off his impressive wingspan with a majestic yawn and the next he's off chaiseing a light or a leaf when he thinks no one is looking. He often roles his eyes when Hypergoof playfully teases him by saying his name in a funny pitch or calling him "The Zigster" but a poorly hidden grin betrays the fact that he doesn't mind as much as he lets on. Ziggy is decently friendly to most people who don't insult his dignity (only his close friends are allowed to do that) but he is still technically a wild skrill. He spends most of his time off chaising storms and doing whatever else wild skrills do only he stops by every once in a while to visit Hypergoof. Manny people wonder why he keeps coming back as he always seems more annoyed with Hypergoof than anything but it is just a mask. A false front. He secretly really enjoys her company. In fact perhaps Hypergoof's absurdity amuses him. FUN FACT: Before meeting Ziggy it was Hypergoof's life dream to see a live skrill. (Partly her Berserker heritage) For her meeting Ziggy was akin to meeting a celebrity. Of course things got more normal between them as they got to know each other but Hypergoof is still pretty darn proud that a skrill let her be his friend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Causemoe

(Knows the owner of this house hates it when he sits there)

           A young flightmare who was one of Ziggy's friends then also became Hypergoof's friend when Ziggy brought him to Berk. Unlike Ziggy though, Causemoe decided that he liked Berk and the school so much that he would stay. He is a complete showoff and loves to be the center of attention. He can get huffy if he finds someone who does one of his favorite things better than him. He especially hates it that Wanda can glow brighter than him. She often tones down her glow when she's near him to spare his feelings.

 

 

 

 

 

Wanda

(Knows the best places for the best view)

         As mentioned before, Hypergoof is scared of stoker class dragons. When approached by a fireworm her normal reaction is to flip out as if the little dragon was a bee. Wanda however is an exception to this rule and not only is she a fireworm but she is a fireworm queen. Hypergoof once got herself lost in a snowstorm and was found by one of Wanda's workers unconscious and soon to freeze if something wasn't done. Wanda is a very empathetic dragon. Even though she didn't trust humans she didn't want to see a helpless creacher d.ie in such a way. She took Hypergoof into her nest to warm up. Hypergoof was stuck there for several days not knowing which way was home until Cuteseepie tracked her down by scent and took her back to the village. During Hypergoof's time in the nest Wanda decided she liked this little human. Hypergoof was terrified of most of Wanda's children and since Wanda didn't understand Norse yet Hypergoof communicated her unease by sticking as close to the fireworm queen as she would allow. Purposely mimicking the bodylanguig of a scared puppy to get her point across. Wanda was sympathetic of Hypergoof's fear and allowed the little human to stay near. Keeping the meaner members of her family at bay until Cuteseepie could find the lost viking. Wanda was a bit suprized to find that a dragon was the one looking for the girl. She has a healthy dose of curiosity in her and often visits Berk for "research purposes" as she calls it. Wanda is curious about humans and wants to learn about them. Hypergoof is grateful to Wanda for her kindness and will come when she calls. Something Wanda finds amusing but also gives her an easy target to study. Personalitywise Wanda is the type of person one might have a fancy tea party with. She is every bit a queen but is also an intellectual with a kind heart. She hangs around Berk to study the uneeq human and dragon interactions there. Seeking how to possibly spread that type of friendship for the good of dragon kind.

 

 

 

 

 

Burpetta

(Wonders if she'd get in trouble for blasting me into the water behind the camera)

          A pink thunderdrum who someone in the dragon rehab center found as a baby then dumped on Hypergoof since no one wanted to deal with the hatchling. Their relationship started out terribly due to Hypergoof's sound sensitivity. In the beginning Hypergoof could barely stand Burpetta but eventually the dragon realized that her loudness has hurting the human and learned to be more gentle with Hypergoof's delicate ears. Sometimes Burpetta can be careless but she never means any harm and will correct her behavior when she eventually realizes she did wrong. She is kind by nature but loves a bit of mischief now and then. She also has a bit of the stubbornness common in her breed. Once she sets her mind to something it is difficult to convince her otherwise.

 

 

 

 

Chomp

(Sleeping like the baby he is)

            A screaming death. He is the baby of the group despite being the biggest member of it. When Alven found out that one of the eggs he'd planted under Berk had hatched a screaming death he decided he wanted such a beast for himself. He knew he couldn't capture the adult so he decided to get his hands on a hatchling. He captured a bunch of the successful breeding pair's family members in the hopes that more of them would carry the incredibly rare screaming death gene. The captive dragons were force bread and after many many attempts Alven got what he wanted. He didn't get to keep it though as a couple Hooligans who had snuck into Alven's hideout looking for helpful info about future plans found the baby screaming death instead. They took it back to Berk to figure out what to do with it. Several people wanted to kill the little guy before he could grow into an island eater but Hypergoof over heard and was horrified. She knew what it felt like to be disliked for what she was rather than who she was. Some people didn't trust her because she was a Berserker. She knew it wasn't fair to judge someone that way. She stole Chomp and (With Wiggles and Termite's permission) hid him down Wiggles's tunnels. Wiggles didn't mind and enjoyed having a roommate to play with. Chomp stayed there unknown until his loudness and the sheer amount of food being brought down there gave him away. By then though he was old enough that he had enough personality to proved him a gentle giant rather than a monster and he was allowed to stay. He is not at all a full grown screaming death and has the personality of a giant toddler. He is surprisingly gentle especially considering his breed. He is so mild tempered that he will stare blankly at fire trolls wondering what they are doing. He will only engage if he thinks it's a game. Despite his gentleness his size and strength can be a problem. He will occasionally knock someone over with his tail by accident then stare at them in confusion not smart enough to understand why the person fell but knowing it was still somehow his fault. When other screaming deaths were allowed into the school Chomp was thrilled to have playmates his size. Chomp is very much still a baby mindwise. He is very food oreeinted and can be prompted to do nearly anything for a snack. It's a very good thing he doesn't consider humans food. It's hard to imagine that he could ever be related to the screaming death who once tried to eat Berk but he is. The danjoris one happens to be his somewhat distant uncle. Fun fact: Hypergoof often refers to Chomp's uncle as Mr. Island munch and insists that she will continue to do so until his actual name is found out or created.

 

 

 

 

 

Punaluu

(LOVES sand)

(I really shouldn't be suprized)

            A female sand wraith. Punaluu comes from a subspeasys of sand wraith on a volcanic island with black sand. (Like the beach Punaluu is named after.) As such they adapted to the environment by becoming black. A side affect of this is that now the subspeacys looks even more like a nightfurry than the normal ones. Some money hungry showmen found out about them and decided to make a quick buck. They stoll an egg from this island and paraded the black hatchling around claiming it to be a nightfurry. This charade ended when they made the mistake of bringing their show to Berk. Seeing that the dragon was being treated badly the Hooligans took the baby from the showmen and took it to the dragon rehabilitation center for treatment for whip wounds and malnutrition. Punaluu is much healthier now and is a happy energetic young sand wraith. One problem she has is that her dark coloring is only designed for a certain type of area and she can not camouflage most of the time because of it. Not being able to hide occasionally gives her episodes of anxiety but a quick trip to a beach ushuly fixes it. She is very shy around strangers but around those she knows she is a complete goof. She can also be a bit naughty. Sometimes she feels out of place like she doesn't belong and so interacts well with Hypergoof who doesn't fit in all that well ether.

STUFF:

You can call me Geek or Geekdom for short. I'm a girl, by the way.

Thank you, AllyNadderRider, for my profile picture!

My fandoms include The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and, of course How to Train Your Dragon.

If you're interested in OC- and headcanon-heavy MLP fanfics, look here

Step right up to meet my OCs, and below, my adoptables!

 

First up is Allie, my main OC.

Her dragon is Excelsior, a stormcutter. The picture of her and Excelsior is by Scorpio Kardia, and the one of just her is by Pixel.

Allie's organized and practical, but still really absentminded at times. She's awkward around people she doesn't know very well and when it comes to muscles she's pretty wimpy, but she can whip up a pretty great strategy. If only people would listen to her when she tried to explain it. She really doesn't like hurting other people or animals, and that's not even including the fact that she feels queasy around blood.

Her weapon of choice is a hairbrush. Why? Even I don't know.

 

Then there's Kara.

 

Kara was an Outcast, but now she lives in Berk. It's a long story. I might write a fanfic about it... eventually. The razorwhip edit is by NadderMeGood, AKA Le Jigglypuff. Drawing of Kara by MistyNight.

Kara is spunky and stubborn. She's tough as nails, and she's suspicious of any kindness. She grew up in a very dog-eat-dog world, after all. Her weapon is a warhammer, and she primarily rides a razorwhip named Shine, though the armorwing from the Battle for the Edge expansion and the singetail from the Return to Dragon Island expansion are also her dragons.

 

Next up we have Starr.

[No pictures of Starr currently]

I use her for next-gen roleplays. Starr has long, blonde hair and dark green eyes. Her bonenapper, Crypt, is still young and doesn't have a full armour. This picture of him is by TosiLohi.

Starr is shy and quiet. She really loves maps and mapping, and she's good at rock-climbing. Crypt is cocky and stubborn and refuses to listen to a word Starr says. She found him as an egg, which is why I have this awesome picture by Gorginia47:

 

Finally, there's Lissa.

[No pictures of Lissa currently]

She's another one for next-gen things. She's short and kind of pudgy, with black hair and grey-blue eyes. Her dragon, Santa Claws, is a battered red/white/green groncicle.

Lissa is really good with animals. She's kind and compassionate. Santa escaped from Drago a while ago, but his experience there left him scarred both emotionally and physically. Lissa was able to help him work through his trauma, and the two forged a powerfully unbreakable bond.

 

Here are my adoptables. On the newer ones (as of 10/17/16) the dragon species name is a link to the adoptable thread. If I get around to digging up some of the older threads I'll link them too, but that may not happen.

 

 

These are Ithil, Anor, and Earendil, my Spacial Beauties. They're siblings: moon, sun, and stars.

Ithil is named for the moon in Elvish, from The Lord of the Rings; he's playful and always ready for a romp and a good time. When vikings around him are drinking mead, he likes to take a sip, and he becomes very goofy and then falls asleep, soundly and for a long time.

Anor, on the other hand, is the sun. She is quieter and more reserved. She's very observant and sees a lot of things that go on in Berk. She likes napping in the sunlight, which her scales reflect blindingly. She loves plants and everything that grows, and often tries to help them along, with varying success.

Earendil's namesake is one of the brightest stars of Middle-Earth; she's shy and reserved. She loves to explore and find places where nobody's ever been before. She likes boats, and never gets seasick. Earendil can make the parts of her that look like stars glow brightly, even blinding those who threaten her or her friends. She hates spiders.

Name: Anuniaq

Species: Keelut

Backstory:

Starr was exploring the north with her boneknapper, Crypt, mapping the scattered islands. After she made camp one night, however, she discovered a lot of stores were missing the next day. She found doglike tracks running through the snow, but after she followed them for twenty yards, they disappeared. When she studied the depth and angle of the last tracks compared to the previous ones, though, it looked like it had taken flight, like it was a dragon--but what dragon had prints like a dog?

She sketched the prints in her notebook and set off through the air with Crypt to track the dragon. Though Crypt was not an exceptional tracker, he was able to follow the scent of the stolen food fairly well. They landed near a hollow, where Starr saw a smallish dragon devouring the last of her stolen supplies.

Using the rest of her supplies, she lured the dragon back to Berk. She soon found it had a curious mind and was eager for adventure, much like herself. The two formed a bond as Starr took care of the creature, who seemed to have been fairly hungry up in the north. She named the dragon "Anuniaq", a name that to those of the north she came from meant "Hunts for Food". It also meant "Hunts for Knowledge", which was also accurate. Starr took Anuniaq with her often on her exploring journeys up north. Not only did the dragon get to visit her homeland again, she was also excellent at navigating the area, and her uncanny ability to locate food meant they could travel lighter, packing fewer supplies.

Name: Buckbeak

Species: Thorny Sea Hound

Backstory:

Allie enjoyed sitting down to fish, getting a chance to just relax. Today, she'd borrowed a boat and was out fishing on the open ocean. Excelsior was circling the area, flying around. Allie had caught a lot of fish and was getting ready to return home when suddenly, many dragons swooped in on her and began attacking. She pulled out her hairbrush (her weapon of choice, don't judge) and swung it, but it passed right through the creatures. She was confused, but the dragons soon disappeared again. Odd.

When she turned around, she suddenly realized her entire day's catch had been stolen! Through the water, she caught a glimpse of a long purple creature sliding away through the water. She called Excelsior to her and followed it. It looked like some kind of dragon. She called Excelsior, mounted, and followed the new dragon.

Before long they caught up to it, sitting on the shore and eating the last of Allie's fish.  It was a beautiful dragon, and Allie walked up to it cautiously, not knowing how it would behave. It fixed her with a stare of its eyes, and somehow she felt it was sizing her up, deciding if she was worthy. She trusted her instincts about this, and also about what he was looking for. She kept her eyes open, not blinking, and stared it in the eyes as she gave it a short bow. It paused for a moment, then lowered its own head, returning the bow. Allie reached up and stroked its nose. The nose felt hard, kind of like a beak. In her mind, Allie began calling the dragon Buckbeak.

It lowered its neck, allowing her to mount, then took her for a ride across the top of the ocean. It was amazingly fast, and the water splashing her was cool and refreshing. Before long, it returned her to the rocky area, where Excelsior was waiting.

She took off, and Buckbeak didn't follow, but she often returned (especially on hot days) to visit him and go for a ride.

(Okay, maybe this dragon reminded me a bit of a hippogriff.)

Adopted from: WitcherForever

Name: Forest Light (Light for short)

Species: Cave Raider (Hatchling)

Backstory:

Lissa and Santa Claws, her groncicle, were out scouting the forest. They were so absorbed in watching the wildlife on the forest floor that they didn't notice the clouds beginning to gather until, with a rumble of thunder, the clouds opened up and poured down on them. Soaked through, Lissa turned back, but soon spotted a cave. She'd much rather stop there until the storm abated than head all the way back to Berk, and Santa seemed eager to reach shelter as well. Raindrops were freezing on his cold skin, weighing him down.

They landed in the cave, and Santa began ridding himself of the raindrops with his claws and teeth. Lissa started heading towards the back of the cave to explore. She thought she saw a faint glow ahead. Interested, she moved closer, then realized it was a dragon, and not just any dragon, a mother with a nest! She knew better than to mess with one of those, but it wasn't a dragon she'd ever seen before, and she was absolutely fascinated. So instead of backing away, she walked forward slowly. The dragon turned and growled at her, and Lissa noticed the glowing spines--fascinating! Hiccup would never forgive her if she let an opportunity like that go to waste. She lifted a hand. "It's okay," she whispered. If you used a high-pitched, fast voice, animals would get riled up, but a low and slow one would calm them, a fact Lissa knew well and would use to her advantage. "It's okay," she said again, forcing herself to be calm, practically exuding calm. Carefully, she reached up and stroked the dragon's nose soothingly.

Lissa wasn't a very talented girl, but this was where the talents she did have lay, in calming and understanding dragons, or any animal, really. She rarely used dragon nip, which felt like cheating to her. But this dragon was fairly calm already.

She grinned and started to walk towards the eggs, but a growl from the mother alerted her that she wasn't trusted that much yet. She backed away from the eggs, which seemed to earn her some more trust from the mother.

She continued to stroke that dragon, running her fingers down the neck, along the back, across the wings, down the tail. The dragon seemed to like that a lot, so Lissa continued for a while. In fact, what she was doing was memorizing the dragon's curves so she could describe it to Hiccup.

She heard the rain outside start to lessen and turned to head back outside, but the mother dragon made a little rumble that clearly meant, wait just one second. Then she turned to the eggs and nosed one towards Lissa, a foresty green one with bluer and yellower patches. The yellow patches glowed. Lissa gasped as she realized what the mother was telling her. Tenderly, she picked it up. "I'll take good care of it," she promised solemnly.

The glowing egg lit Lissa's way back through the tunnel, and she found Santa all ready to go. The rain had stopped now, so she mounted up, still holding the egg carefully, and headed back to Berk to tell Hiccup. He was excited she'd discovered a new species, and when the egg hatched, he sketched it from every angle while Lissa tried desperately to convince the dragon (who she'd named Forest Light) to sit still. He was a curious, adventurous fellow, and he loved riding on Santa when Lissa went anywhere. He was incredibly loyal and never left her side, and though he was extremely reluctant when he first learned to fly, he got the hang of it more quickly than any other dragon Lissa had seen. She took him often to visit his mother, but the visits didn't usually last very long, as the mother dragon had plenty of other babies on her hands.

Light wasn't really Lissa's dragon, not fully. Hiccup had a large hand in his training, too, and he soon showed an affinity for herding both sheep and small dragons, making him invaluable around the village. Lissa liked to joke that once he grew up, he'd keep the entire village full of dragons under control.

Celestia watches over the element of light. As such, she is extremely attracted to shiny things.

Name: Revenge

Species: Ballistic Silentwing

Personality: Revenge is, as her name suggests, very vengeful. But that's not the only side to her nature. She's also very nurturing to younger dragons and more forgiving of them than of others. She enjoys flying and doing tricks, but she's very competitive. I don't let her compete, because she'll make it less fun for others.

Adopted from: chameishida

Name: Baby

Species: Starstruck

Backstory: I was walking by myself in the woods when I heard a keening yelp. I ran towards the noise, which sounded like an injured dragon. I burst into a clearing to see a baby starstruck being attacked by a boar. Knowing how rare they were, I wanted to save it, so I attacked the boar with nothing but a small dagger. Both I and the starstruck got pretty injured, but I managed to drive off the boar. The dragon and I had to work together to get back to Berk all right. By the time we were done, we'd formed a bond. I called her Baby while we were in the woods, just as a nickname, but she refused to answer to anything else later.

Name: Seafoam

Species: Smoothskin

Backstory: Seafoam was one of my very first dragons. I passed her beached on the shore, floundering around and trying to return to the water. It took me a long time to convince her to trust me and let me help her get back into the water, but after that she was always swimming around when I came into the water and bringing me fish to thank me. I'm not sure if this is quite a dragon bond or one of those life-debt things, but I love her all the same whichever it might be.

Name: Rowena

Species: Golden Snitch Dragon

Personality: Rowena is quiet, but not because she's shy. She's more... arrogant. She's highly strategic and constantly creams everyone at chess. She considers humans to be beneath her, but will deign to consort with a few she has deemed worthy.

Backstory: I was glancing out the window of my tower when I first saw her fly past. I was instantly in love with the shimmering swirls of silver on her body, the feathers on her elbows, and her elegant, floating wings. I saw the golden ball she was carrying, carved with words in an elaborate script, but before I could make out the words, she was gone.

It took me weeks to find her again. She was perched on top of the tower, where she apparently made her home, and it was quite a challenge to get up there. She flew away whenever I tried to approach her with a broomstick; she seemed to consider it cheating. So I had to climb. When I reached her, she wouldn't let me approach. She simply rolled the ball towards me, and I saw that every inch was covered in riddles, ones much harder than the ones the common room door usually gave me. She seemed to have collected the best ones for a long time, decades, maybe centuries. I examined them all thoroughly, until I could recite them backwards in my sleep, but I had no idea. Defeated, I was forced to retreat.

I spent hours every day in the library, reading every book remotely related to any of the riddles. It was hard work, but I'm stubborn. After three weeks of hard studying, I was ready. I returned to the tower, and when she returned the ball to me, I answered her riddles. She consented to allow me to come close to her and to touch her. She refused to let me ride her, though.

After that, she came down to the common room sometimes. Sometimes she'd curl up in front of the fire or sit next to me and read over me shoulder as I did my homework--that drove me crazy, because she was constantly making disapproving noises when she felt I did something wrong and always made me second-guess myself, but I got great grades on those assignments! Most of the time, though, she played chess with anyone and everyone who was willing to play her. After the first three times she creamed them, most people weren't willing anymore. But like I said, I'm stubborn. I read books about chess technique, learned from my mistakes, watched her technique as I played her time and time again, and one fateful day, I beat her.

She allowed me to ride on her back for the first time.

I'll never forget that day. It was different entirely from broomstick, hippogriff, winged horse, or any other method of flying I've ever tried, and it was better than any of them. The next day, as I climbed up to her tower as usual, I expected another ride, but I was wrong. She would only grant me a ride after I had beaten her at chess, which was a rare occurence no matter what I did. But it was worth being creamed a thousand times over just for one flight.

Adopted from: IisRandom

Extra facts: This is a Harry Potter-universe dragon. Thus, she belongs to my HP OC Zenna instead of any of my HTTYD OCs. Also, Snitch Dragons are usually much smaller, but Rowena is several centuries old. Future Ravenclaws may well find her atop the tower, but beware. Her riddles only get harder as time goes on.

Adopted from: CoolerthanDragons

Name: Ozymandias

Species: Galedron

Personality: Ozymandias likes to think he's feirce, and no doubt he was in his younger days. Now, though, he's just a teddy bear. An elderly teddy bear. He hoards shiny things, and he'll do all he can in protection of them, which usually just means sleeping on top of them... very soundly. One time a herd of somethering smokebreaths came through and stole his entire hoard out from under him, and he didn't even twitch.

Species: Outrageous Windshrike
Adopted from: NightmareRebuff

Name: Azmavarim

Species: Cyclonewing

Adopted from: Snowflake12298

Name: Altus

Species: Triple Stryke

(Short) Backstory: Altus saw Excelsior flying around one day and saw that their coloring was very similar. For some reason, he seemed inclined to trust her, so he followed her home. He was slower to trust Allie, but eventually the pair bonded, though Altus still seemed to prefer Excelsior, and took directions from her more readily than those from Allie.

Adopted from: donnala

Name: Orthanc

Species: This creature actually has no official name, but I call it a Flitterwing.

Backstory: I was walking in the woods when I found its egg. I took it back to Berk and raised it. It became very mischevious, and frightened me by turning into a cocoon for two weeks. I had never seen a species like it before. I suggested it be called a Flitterwing, but the Riders were doubtful.

Names: Nivelle and Solace

Species: Pollen Wing

Personality: Pollen wings are all about taking care of plants. This pair lives in an apple tree near the Great Hall and helps all the plants in Berk grow. Though they're siblings, these dragons are polar opposites. Nivelle loves winter, ice, and snow; Solace's favorite season is summer, the time of sun and warmth. 'Nivelle' means 'snow' in Latin; 'Solace' means 'sun'. Even so, the two work well together.

Name: Laurelindorenan

Species: Elemental Jabberjaw

Adopted From: The Ecliptic Eight

Extra: She's a kind of elemental drago. Her element is (obviously) earth.

Name: Umbra

Species: Jabberjaw

Personality: Umbra is a feisty little girl with a nose for trouble. She's also very curious and tries to learn more about everything. By destroying it. Which usually defeats the purpose.

Adopted from: The Ecliptic Eight

Name: Demeter

Species: Maned Stratofier

Personality: Demeter has a natural mothering instinct, but she doesn't have any children. Instead, her instinct is to protect and help everything that comes her way. She, like most of her species, has a deep-seated hatred for skrills.

NON-DRAGON ADOPTABLES BELOW

This is Squee. She's a Pan Puffle, which is not a dragon- I'm not quite sure what it is. Squee is a real prankster. She likes even jumping out and scaring people, but she's adept at more elaborate pranks too. Being able to float around silently helps a lot with that. She can get carried away and hurt someone accidentally, but she would never do it on purpose... unless it was really, really funny. I adopted her from Sky and Ocean.

This is Tiger, a female teenage whale shark. She's a good friend of Mako's. She likes nosing around shipwrecks and looking at all the random stuff inside.

This is Jelly. Don't let her frighten you, she's really very friendly! She does have a bit of a temper, though, and sometimes when I look into her eyes, I seem to feel compelled to do what she wan- What's that, Jelly? You want me to tell them all how wonderful you are? And how amazing, and how... I don't know, that seems a bit excessive... oh, don't make that adorable face, you know I can't resist-

*monotone robot voice* Jelly is wonderful. She is amazing. I have never had a better pet. Jelly is my best friend.

"A sense of touch? An ability to lie that you lacked before? Maybe humanness really is contagious and that gadget whatever it is just made it worse." Rizzo said. He was mostly joking.

 

 

((Interestingly I was half tempted to explain that to the possible readers but I didn't know if it would be weird or not. I'm not even sure why I felt it was weird to acknowledge that people might read it especially since I am also a RP stalker but I just did for some reason. Again no idea why.))

Iri rolled her eyes and returned to her tried-and-true method of dealing with Rizzo: ignoring him. Instead, she started looking at the knife again. "I think the attachments that are harder to get out will have the more interesting effects. Whoever designed this probably put the really important parts near the bottom; they'll be the ones it was hard to find." Secretly, she wondered what would happen if Rizzo touched the extra-hidden one, but the risk was too big for her to ask him to find out. "First of all, can you tell me which one of these parts blew up your house?"

"This is going to sound crazy but...it was that one." Rizzo pointed to the part that just looked like a giant knife. The part that had made Rizzo refer to the contraption as pocketkniflike in the first place.

Iri stared. "What? But- but-"

All logic dictated that the attachments on the outside would be simple ones, and the ones that were hidden would be the doozies. She had figured about a 90% probability that several of them were actual things you might find on a normal pocketknife, to throw off suspicion. But if that one was already weaponized...

"Then what on earth do the others do?" She wasn't even sure she wanted to find out anymore.

 

((What would happen if Rizzo touched the one that sped up Iri's process? Would he start becoming a little robotic? Maybe something like Twitchy, but not quite that level yet?))

((It might depend on how long he touched it. Or given what that part did to Iri that specific part might be only to return a humanlike sense of touch to parts of a human that just got replaced with something inorganic so it might do nothing to Rizzo in his current state. It might have done some extra stuff to Iri because she is a full on robot or she may have unknowingly touched another part at the same time that erases unwanted programming (the device may have picked up that Iri found her anti lieing thing somewhat annoying and since she was the one triggering it it acted as if she was giving it a command.) Whichever one sounds cooler/makes more sense I guess.))

 

Rizzo looked at the thing and added "Plus. Where did it come from? What is it for and most importantly.....HOW DID IT END UP IN A JUNKYARD!?!?!"

((Okay, so between your

((Okay, so between your messages about Twitchy and thinking about what the knife actually does, I think I came up with something.

All robots actually have a small core of organic-ness. Certain attachments on the pocketknife can increase this humanity, but they can also go the other way and create various levels of cyborg. There are also a lot of defenses to discourage the curious. It might not do anything to an ordinary human, but once they have even a small bit of computer in them, say a single computer chip, it can start to grow, almost taking them over. But what the people behind this project weren't counting on was the fact that, as Rizzo joked, "humanity is contagious". Robots aren't supposed to really care about anything or have emotions, but due to their small humanness, they do have a little bit of that, and if they 'befriend' a human (which isn't actually really friendship at first) it can actually blossom into real friendship with actual emotions and real love (and yes, robots could also have romantic love with humans, but we're not going to go into that or the biology). So, basically, probably nothing would happen to Rizzo, but once the robots placed even a small computer chip in him he could start to become a cyborg.))

 

Iri glanced at the small knife, bristling with attachments. "I don't know if I want to know anymore," she said. "Maybe it would be better not to try to find out."

At the same time, however, she desperately wanted to know more. "I suppose if we're really careful with the investigation, it couldn't be too dangerous... right?

 

((IDEA IDEA IDEA

Okay so for the climax, they badguys got the Pocketknife of Doom back, they used it to turn Iri back fully robot and Rizzo might also have been turned into a robot by this point. Any other characters they care about by now (Steve the creepy stalker spaceship, Twitchy, anyone else we bring in) is also robotized now. They feel no emotion and don't really care about each other anymore. They follow orders perfectly. The badguys have won.

BUT.

They might not feel emotion or friendship anymore, but they remember what it was like when they used to. They make a concious decision to go back to that. And once they do, they start becoming human again, and they don't stop. This probably happens while they're away from supervision for a bit, but it happens very quickly, and suddenly both of them (or all of them, as many people as are there) are human. 100% human. Unless they get chips put back in, they are immune to the effects of the Pocketknife of Doom. They convince enough other robots to become human that they can take down the evil AIs who started this mess in the first place, or else maybe convince them to become human too. Basically I'm thinking of the season six finale. Friendship is magic!))

((I don't like the idea that they can go 100% away from what they were. Humans aren't suppose to be superior to robots. They just think in a different way and there's a big difference between picking up traits from another race than it is to flat out give up your own race to become another. It's not a happy ending to erase someone's original race. The villains are villains not because they are AI's but because they do not respect other ways of thinking. I would think a better ending would be to end up with both sides understanding the other side a little better and realize that both sides have something worth saving. It would be just as insulting to Iri and Steve to turn them 100% human as it is to turn Rizzo 100% into a robot. The other stuff like Rizzo would need a chip inplanted for the tool to work on him is ok though.))

 

 

Rizzo looked down at the pocketknife thing and stared at it for a long time. Then he said "I'm just as on the edge as you are. I'm kind of horrified I've just been handling this thing like it's nothing when apparently it has freaky unknown powers and might mess up my DNA or something. Maybe it already has. We don't even know it's not radioactive or something. Actually do you have a way to check that because if you do please do. I want to know if I'm about to get cancer."

Hmph.

((Okay, I see where you're coming from. I just thought it would be cool. Maybe instead they become immune to the effects after a while?))

 

"I did not detect any radioactivity coming from this device," Iri confirmed. "I automatically detect any coming from my surroundings without having to actively scan. You'd be surprised at the things that turn up in junkyards sometimes..." She turned over the object again, then pointed the laser attachment at the opposite side of the junkyard and wiggled it a little.

A blast of light shot from the end of the attachment and across the yard, decimating a large pile of metal into rubble. "You weren't kidding! That was a big explosion." Iri sounded worried now.

((I think a good chunk of what you wrote could still be used. Just maybe with a tweaked ending. Robots probably can become 100% that way of thinking since it's from their race while humans might just be able to have their way of thinking hidden for a while before it surfaces again. Though yes this does mean that I don't think the AIs can become 100% human. They can probably come close if they so chose but I don't even think Iri would want everything about the way humans think seeing as it's slower than what she's use to. The difference in speeds is part of what messed Twitchy up so badly. It would probably mess Iri up too just the opposite way. I don't think most AIs would agree to become human ether. I could see Iri attempting it since she seems to be growing a huge appreciation of human traits but I think most of them would be content with just being AIs with a few human traits. I know from experience as an Autistic person that people don't generally want to change how their brain is wired even if that means dealing with issues not everyone has to deal with. If you ask a autistic person if they would rather have a nerotypical ("normal") brain most of them will say no and this includes ones who have to type their answer in a keyboard because they can't talk. There may be a few who would be willing to switch but most of them would say no. You're welcome to have Iri become mostly human if she so desires (as in. She may even look like one at the end of this) but I think having it be a full switch or having the majority of AIs choose that route would be very unrealistic))

 

 

 

Rizzo dodged a peace of shrapnel then said "Yup. That's exactly what happened to a wall of my house. EXACTLY. You don't think this thing is a weapon do you? It could really mess stuff up if the wrong person had it."

Yeah, I see your point.

((Yeah, I do see what you mean. I think Iri will end up mostly human--and maybe when it happens naturally, instead of through artificial means, it creates much fewer problems, so something like Twitchy is less likely to happen to her. But in that case, I do think the plot I had in mind doesn't work quite as well.))

 

Iri nodded. "That was a lot bigger than I expected. Maybe we shouldn't mess with them, or we could blow up the entire junkyard, and after we just convinced your boss you weren't a troublemaker, too."

((I'd expect nothing less XD))

((Maybe at this point Rizzo should make the connection of "we don't want anyone else finding it" -> "other people might want it" -> "hey, that's about the same size as the things Dave grabbed" -> "I wonder if that was what Dave was after". I would have Iri do it, but humans are WAY better at making connections like that than computers are.))

Rizzo nodded and agreed "You're right. And luckily the place I had it before is pretty secure. Even Steve doesn't know about it and I think you've figured out how difficult that is to accomplish just from what I've said about him." Rizzo reached down to pick up the unknown tool in a much more careful way then he had carried it before. However just as he started to turn around to begin the journey back home he spotted half a thermos in the junk surrounding them. Immediately he paused as his mind jumped backwards to remember a specific moment. "Huh. It's the same size as a thermos." Rizzo mumbled. He turned to face Iri and told her "This thing is the same size as the thermos! Well not that one but the one Dave tried to take."

Suddenly there was a sound of a small trashalanch and when Rizzo instinctively turned to find the source of that noise but although part of him was sure he had seen a shape disappear it was nothing but a shadow if anything at all and he couldn't be sure if he had even seen anything. The hairs on the back of his neck stood up and he stared off in the direction of what could have been someone watching them or could have been just his imagination.

We wouldn't know it wasn't an AI because of its armor but its behavior would weird us out a little. I'll let you decide which one sounds more fun or give out another idea you think sounds better.))

Rizzo had only lead Iri about a block when....something jumped down from the rooftops to corner the two in an ally. It looked like a humanoid android. A heavily armored humanoid android. It didn't appear to have a face ((the helmet hides it)) just a flat darkened surface resembling a biker's helmet that could be a sensory screen of some sort but it didn't even have a digital face like Iri. A antenna stuck up from the android's head. One feature it did have was a ventlike thing on the lower part of the "face." Whether it was an exhaust port or an actuall vent or even speaker was difficult to know. Rizzo found himself rudely staring at it trying to figure this out when the android pointed at the object in Rizzo's hands and said "That doesn't belong to you." The hair on the back of Rizzo's neck stood up again. Something was odd about that voice. He wasn't sure what.

Iri had glided back a reflexive step, but now she moved forwards again. If she could keep that robot distracted long enough for Rizzo to slip her the knife, she could probably sneak it into her compartment. That pocket in her chest was designed to be nearly impossible for anyone else to open. If they could get the knife inside it, it would almost certainly be safe.

"Well, it doesn't belong to you either!" she said, though she actually had no idea if it did or not. Meanwhile, she was holding her hand out a little to the side, as if reaching for the knife. She hoped Rizzo would see it and understand, and she hoped the android wouldn't. She was confident this was a reasonable risk to take, as robots tended to focus pretty strongly on what they had decided to pay attention to, and something they hadn't might slip past them.

Rizzo had not picked up Iri's subtle que yet. He was instinctively glancing around for ways to run. The android asked "If I didn't have something to do with the people who owned that thing why would I have come for it? Do you even know what that thing does? Curiosity k.illed the cat you know and it could k.ill you too playing with things you don't understand." 

Rizzo understood what was wrong with that voice now. He'd only met two AIs that showed a humanlike level of emotion in their words. This one sounded angry. Like, legitimately annoyed with them. One of his instinctual glances happened to point him towards Iri and he finally noticed her open hand. The android however noticed it too and tazed Rizzo. That's right. Just out of nowhere. He tazed him. Two barely visible wires shot out of the android's fist and got Rizzo right in the chest. The human immediately fell to the ground as electricity overran his motor neurons. It wasn't enough to k.ill him but it wasn't meant to. The android made a grab for the weird tool that was now on the ground.

 

 

 

 

((I'm having emotion be one part of humans that can not be removed fully so even the cyborgs that have been turned robot as far as they can go still have emotion at least sometimes))

 

((Also feel free to have Iri get ahold of the thing first if you wish. You can also have the cyborg grab it and do a fight scene in which case you can control the cyborg for that segment though I want to show their retreat cuz they'll have something to say before going))

Iri gasped. "Rizzo!" she shouted, then dove for the object, barely snatching it from under the android's outstretched hand. She wondered if he would taze her too--she had no idea what would happen if someone attempted to taze a robot. She went into a roll. The hard stones pressed painfully into her back. Oh. Feeling has some downsides. She sprang up into a hover again and started moving quickly towards the end of the alleyway, hoping to draw him away and give Rizzo some time to recover.

 

((I googled how long it took somebody to recover from being tasered, and the results were irritatingly scarce. However, I think Rizzo should recover pretty soon, though he'll feel very drained. If you want we can do a kind of keep-away match with the cyborg, or we can just move on. Up to you.))

((I'm probably not going to have the scene go on too long))

 

 

The android pulled the taser wires out of Rizzo so they could be reset then turned his attention to Iri. He did not however step towards her yet. "You're willing to fight for this silly thing?" He asked.

 

 

((Rizzo will get up in the next post))

Iri hesitated, then said decisively, "Yes, unless you can give me a very good reason why you or whoever you're involved with should own something this powerful." As she spoke, the door of the compartment in her chest swung open. She placed the object inside and closed it hastily. Good luck getting in there. Then she glanced around the robot to see if Rizzo was all right.

"So that's how it's going to be is it? Well then-" The android looked like he was going to say more when Rizzo painfully lifted himself up onto his elbows before pulling an electric screwdriver out of his pocket and jabbing the android in the heal with it. The android jumped like the action had hurt then snapped "What the heck's wrong with you? Are you crazy or something?" Rizzo was still too weak to talk so he responded by flipping the bird. The android told him "Seriously? I could back your head in like a watermelon if I wanted to! You're really going to flip me off?!" Rizzo painfully turned his other hand around so that now both his hands were flipping the bird.

The android didn't say anything for a few seconds. Rizzo kept his double bird up for those few seconds. Suddenly the android laughed. "Hahaha! A classic human you are!" He turned to Iri and said "How'd you end up with this guy, eh? I thought AI's hated humans like this." The android's voice then went dark as he turned back towards Rizzo and almost whispered "I know we don't like humans like this." The android started to raise his hand like he was going to do....something though exactly what wasn't clear. However before the android could do....that thing he suddenly stared up at the sky as if something was calling him. Without any warning other then the sky stare the android said "You guys are lucky for now. I suddenly don't seem to have time to try and pry doorchest open. Before I go however." The android pricked Rizzo's finger with a needle. When Rizzo questioned why that had been done the android replied "There's no worse snitch than your own DNA." then jumped up onto one of the surrounding buildings and was gone.

Iri looked at the robot as he left. "Well, that was ominous," she muttered. "Let's go before another one shows up or he comes back!"

As they walked, she added, "It might not have been a great idea to flip him off. I think you made him mad, and also made your finger easier to poke."

 

((I'd very much prefer it if we avoided such things from now on. I'm a bit of a sheltered homeschooler, and I try to avoid things like that. Thanks.))

((Alright. Rizzo isn't exactly suppose to be a roll model 100% of the time but I can avoid anything really bad if that bothers you. (not that this forum doesn't already have a badness limit or anything. I think that was already the upper limit to which I would go here) I've already implied that he cussed a few times without showing it so I'll just stick to things like that (A.K.A. "He cussed under his breath" and #@$#@ which implys that a cuss word goes there and things like that) Would "He did a rude gesture" be enough censoring in the future? (not that I think he'll be doing it left and right or anything) I can even edit the last post to that if you wish))

 

Rizzo grinned and said "If you think that made him mad wait until you see what else I did." The human pulled a screw out of his pocket and held it up for Iri to see. He had stolen it.

((Thanks! I think "he did a rude gesture" would be enough. You don't have to edit your old post.))

 

Iri clapped her hands to her mouth. "You did?" She chuckled quietly for a few seconds, then added more seriously, "I'm not sure that was a good idea. Based on what he said, I think he took your DNA, which he might be able to use to track you down. You should be careful."

Rizzo shrugged and said "Eh. Worth it. It wouldn't be the first time someone has done that to me anyway. The big issue is that now he'll know where I live because my DNA has already been taken by the police for some of my past thefts which means that hideing the tool in my house will be more difficult. It's still possible but it will be more difficult."

 

 

 

((Want to meet Steve yet or are you still waiting for a particular character development moment? This is not a question to pressure you any way I'm just curious because they may or may not be going near Rizzo's house depending on where they decide to hide the tool. I'll probably ask every time there's a chance to meet Steve so I know whether or not to hold the meeting off))

"If the house is searched, how likely is your hiding spot to be discovered?" Iri asked, running over possible hiding places in her own home in her mind. None of them seemed very likely to work well. Her home was pretty bare. Robots didn't need or want much.

"Not very likely." Replied Rizzo. "It's been searched before. Things rarely get taken from me despite that. Of course that might be different if this device has some kind of tracker in it or something but if that was the case you'd think it would have been taken already."

Iri nodded. "Okay, let's just get it back to your house safely then."

The rest of the journey passed without incident, and Iri opened her compartment to allow Rizzo to retrieve it before she said goodbye and left.

Rizzo took the object and hid it in his secret room. The next Monday Rizzo randomly started the work day by asking Iri a weird question. "Hey Iri. Do you know of any AI's have have a....reddish liquid in them?"

 

 

((Rizzo found a little bit of blood at the very end of the screw he stole off the cyborg. But of course he doesn't know that's what it was.))

 

((Edited this post let me know if the PM explaining why doesn't get to you))

Iri turned. "Reddish liquid? I don't think so. If water collects on metal, it can rust, and then you can get rust-y water, but most AIs should be pretty rust-proof, even the early ones."

"Hmm. Well it could have been rust I suppose." Rizzo mumbled. Then he said more out loud "I found a kind of reddish brownish stuff on the end of that screw I stole from that weird android. That's why I was asking. It could have easily been rust. I just thought it was a little weird that it was on the end of the screw. You know, the bit that would have been inside that guy while he didn't look rusty otherwise."

 

 

 

 

((We should have the boss be annoyed with them for A. letting a trash pile get blown up and B. not cleaning it up (unless Iri already did that) or something. There's probably a reason they are in piles in the first place and it might just give our characters something to do that we can insert other character development/conversation or something))

I go back and forth on whether to call her Iri or Iridna up here

"Hmm," Iri said. "If you give it to me I might be able to analyze the chemicals. That's not really my specialty, but I can learn."

 

((Haha, yes. They'll need an excuse for the pile being blown up...))

Rizzo pulled the screw out of his pocket. "It just so happens I brought it along. See that brownish stuff on the end. It WAS mostly red but now it's turned mostly brown." He handed the screw to Iri then said in a jokey kind of tone "Don't lose it now. I aim to add it to my screws from people I don't like collection."

Iri rolled her eyes. "Only you would have a collection," she sighed. Then, jokingly, she added, "Any in there from me?"

Iri pretended to be offended, but it only lasted for a few seconds before she laughed.

Suddenly her face grew serious again. "Hey, something else weird happened this weekend..." she showed him her fingers and wiggled them. "My joints disappeared! My skin feels a little softer, but then it would have to be for me to still be able to move. I'm guessing next my compartment will close."

 

((Haha, oops))

Rizzo blinked then said "What the- Ok this isn't just human traits are contagious level. This is you're a freaking werehuman level. ....Get it? Like werewolf only with human?"

 

 

 

((If one knows that the were part of werewolf means man (at least that's what my mom said and she has a huge vocabulary) that makes werehuman a very redundant word. Rizzo of course doesn't know that. I just thought it was worth pointing out because if true it's funny))
