"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

I nodded, "Agreed, and the more friends one brings, the safer one feels."

Of course I was referencing the many times I had had dragoons to save me, like when Zifinia had rescued me from angry Flamewhippers. Or when Storm and I had helped the Greendeath, I had been blown off its back by the strong winds many times, only for Storm to catch me every time. I shuddered, I loved dragon, hated heights.

There where other times too, Sanda's and my explorations of the underberk tunnels, and the time Gauntlet HD rescued me from hunters.

Come to think of, all my dragons had some adventure related to them.

Audra

     Despite the buzz of small talk around her, Audra focused on the horizon, where a dark island grew in size with each passing moment. 

     "Icestorm Island up ahead," Hiccup calls to the riders. Audra calls Orchestra and Mistletoe closer to her. Nightstorm perches on his trainer's shoulder.

     Anticipation fills the dragon rider's insides.

 

((We have to get this show on the road ppl XD))

Having not said anything in

Having not said anything in reply to Eret, Rebecca focused on the miserable dropping of the temperature. Her breath came out in puffs of vapor, quickly passing as each inhale became more shallow. The cold and altitude made it harder to breath, and she really wasn't in her element, buch prefering the heat, or at least the manageable climate of Berk.
​The sound of Hiccup's vioce snapped snapped Rebecca out of her thoughts of self-pity, notifying the group that Icestorm Island was coming into view. She jerked her head up, and quickly scrambled from her comfortable position on the typhoomerang's back and back into the saddle. 
​Pulling her collar closer to her neck to conserve more warmth, she looked onwards to their destination. She didn't know what to expect, only that the opposition was dangerous. Her heart thudded in her chest, less out of fear, but more for in the excitement of battle. Her group was skilled and had good numbers, and she felt confident in their victory.

Lilian

Lilian watched Lily startle in surprise. 

"Huh, what?" She glanced up. Then she got to introductions, which Lilian listened through pleasantly. 

"Oh! A Thunderpede! I've never really gotten to see one before," Lilian said smiling.

"This is Stormbolt. That Titan Woolly Howl is Silver, this little Flightmare lady is Paralysis, and that Tide Glider over there is Sundance. I used to save hurt dragons and bring them back to health. Well, I mean, I still do but now I'm on this mission so I can't save dragons now, obviously. So what do you -," Hiccups voice snapped her out of her babbling mode. 

Icestorm Island was up ahead. The cold dark outlines of the rocks and light blue snow could be seen. The air was frigid and dry, unlike the type she had grown up with. It scraped her skin, like thin blotches of ice wrapping themselves around her like a blanket. Lilian pulled out a cloak and threw it over her shoulders, and thought about what was yet to come. 

Lilian wanted food and to set up her tent nicely. It was large, big enough for all her dragons to fit in with her if they had to, and room for another person or two as long as they didn't have dragons with them. There was also a comfortable stone fireplace, with a hole to let smoke out and the door to let air in. But that had to be set up separately. Also a few fountains for Sundance so she wouldn't dry up.  

'Soon' Lilian thought. 'Soon I will get to a warm and dry place, where we can camp out and plan'.

Lily pulled her hood over her

Lily pulled her hood over her head, she felt a small chill run through her body. Her bright green eyes quickly searched the waters and horizon. She answered Lillian's question " Well... i.. work fer a lot of people-favors really.." What was she supposed to tell her? That she goes around doing dishonest things? They had arrived at Icestorm island, the bulk of rock that was always covered in a sheet of ice. "Typical", she mumbled silently.

Audra

     Eret stops in midair, slowing his rumblehorn to a hover. Audra looks on with confusion.

     "Why are we stopping?" she calls over the strong gust of wind passing through. She shivers violently, pulling her cloak around her. Nightstorm curls around her, providing as much warmth as he can muster. Mistletoe roars with joy at the cooling weather. 

     Eret looks sheepish for a moment. "I didn't exactly know where the Ravers wold stay on this island, so it was hard to determine where we land."

     The explanation is reasonable enough, but it earns him a sharp glare anyway. Hiccup herds the riders closer together, his eyes alight with an idea. "There's an entrance around back into the Ice Caves. If they haven't gone in there yet, we can warm up by the geothermal springs and camp on an ice spire before moving on."

     Audra urges her dragons forward, hoping she won't freeze before warmth finally gets to her.

 

 

Patrol dragons

 

Boneknappers- coasts

Shivertooths- air

Prickleboggle- air

Catastrophic quaken- air

Speed stingers- land

Scauldrons- sea

Whispering deaths- Ice Caves

Groncicles- captured

 

(These are the Ravers' dragons they use to keep the island in check. We must sneak past them to the Ice Caves)

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

I sat in silence for a minute more. The temperature had finally gotten cooler, and those around me where pulling out cloaks and huddling close to their dragons. The cold really made no difference to me, I was used to it. Not to mention I was already wearing a cloak, and hood, and scarf, and gloves.

I looked about us. "Icestorm Island coming up!" I heard Hiccup call. I looked before me, there was the island, cold and frozen as I remembered. I wondered for a moment if I should have brought Frost with me, as a groncickle he was native to the island and might actually be helpful. But considering my strongest bonds where Edith the dragons I had with me, I was glad I hadn't.

"Woah looks likes bewilderbeast swept through." I commented. It actually didn't, but with the huge glacier and all the snow, it might have been the home of one once.

After listening to Hiccups plan I looked around. Even in the heavily falling snow I could see a few dragons flying around, and they where tall ice dragons either. It was hard to make any of them out, except the long snakey bodies of the whispering deaths. I frowned, one of my least favorite dragons, and one of the most well-known for their feirceness.

"I can see Whisperers down there, looks like they have dragon patrols set up. Any ideas on how to get through?"

I wanted to think of a plan like I usually did, but I had very little experience with the snakelike dragons, other then the fact that Yashia adored them and that I had ridden their larger cousins screaming death once.

Tahno

After a while Tahno has give up and just pretend that she isn't with them, thankfully the ice storm island soon came into view along with the change of temporature. Luckily her cape is perfect for that. It's actually the first time she's here. There's no reason for her to come here after all but still the tiny part of her beemed in excitement at the new land to explore, if only they come here for the different circumstance.

Tahno hummed, readjusing her cape a little.

They stopped on their track though. Indecisive as though where to land. Tahno listened to what they said and eventually write on the rock she has to come a little closer for them to read:

We can't keep hovering either, we're going to be the sitting duck out here

She looked back down at the entraced where the girl had pointed about about the whispering death. Her inside quivering uncomfortably. Manta could feel it and let the low rambling soothingly

I might be able to try something if they're wild but---

She pulled back, erased, and rewrite it. She show it more toward Hiccup this time

You know how I feel about dragon tamed by bad men

Hiccup hummed. He has seen Tahno done many wonder, handling wild dragons and take down an armanda but it there's something she lack it's dealing at both the dragon and the human at the same time. Dealing with the dragons that have some connection the the men. She hated have the dragons fighting each others. Similar with how he felt when he's dealing with the singetail riders.

While he's lose in thought, he almost missed it when Tahno flew down without a prompt. She position herself near the entraced but far enough to not being seen by the whispering death. It's not excatly landing either since Manta's half submerge in the water and Tahno's standing on him like a boat. She tiptoeing as she tried to show off the message on the rock. Kinda hard to see when the word are so many and tiny and cramped together 

Different species hover together and landed together scream dragon riders, too big group. They will know. Get off them. Let them fly on their own. No saddles.

She then quickly added, forgoting Toothless can't be on his own

Excepted the night fury

pulled back, scracth

THEN we come up with the plan, safer this way.

as if to make her point more clearer, she scooth over, inviting them to hop on the wide back of the thunderdrum

Audra

     Audra reads Tahno's message all the way from the air. Hiccup and Astrid nod, while Eret furrows his brows.

     "Alright, you heard her. Mount the thunderdrum!" Astrid orders as a scauldron head pops out of the water to curiously watch the group. 

     Audra tells her own dragons where they should go; try to sneak around and meet them at the back entrance of the Ice Caves. She leaps down and lands onto the tidal class dragon's back, giving it a small pat of gratitude. Nightstorm hovers nearby, asking Audra what he should do. 

     He could come with us, she thinks.

     Audra turns to Tahno, tilting her head. "Hello, I'm Audra. Is it okay if my night terror comes?"

Lilian

The group flew up to Icestorm Island. It really was cold now, snowflakes drifting past Lilian's ears. 

They were going to the ice caves. But she had to be on the lookout for Ravers everywhere. 

A couple shapes moved below, signaling dragons moving around on the shore and air. It wouldn't be easy to get through to warmth. And the face the Ravers could already be stationed there wasn't helping the fact. 

Several people commented on how dangerous it could be to get through. Then a girl held up a rock, with a message carved in it. Lilian wasn't the best reader, but after a little, she figured out what it said. 

It said they should split up and get of their dragons. 

Lilian personally didn't want to get of her dragon, and there was a lot of stuff on their backs. Maybe she could leave it somewhere, where it wouldn't be seen. 

But Lilian hoped up of her dragon to the Thunderdrum. It was a little squished with two other Vikings there, but it wasn't exactly the time. 

"Silver, Sundance, Paralysis, Stormbolt, fly around and hide, act like wild dragons. Don't come until I've called for you," she said to the four dragons. She also grabbed a bag with food for three days, water, dry firewood, a pocket knife, and a couple blankets.

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

Isaw the thunder drum rider fly down to the water, holding up a carved rock as she did so. I frowned but obeyed the command. Standing on Stryker's back to remove the pouches from my dragons backs, and connecting them to Storm's saddle, which I then unbuckled.

I felt my foot slip, and in a moment was falling. Storm and Stryker dove for me at the same time, knocking heads and growling each other. I felt like screaming, and the only reason I was able to stop myself form doing so was by biting down censored the leather of one of the saddle bags. It was bitter and brittle, but I kept my screams back.

I landed, hard,in the open water, near where the thunderdrum was. The water was shockingly cold, but once again my instincts kicked in, and I swam over to the thunderdrum, climbing onto its back and holding up my bags. Soaked they might be, but a bit of time at the hot springs and they'd dry. And we would have provisions and a tent.

"I'm okay." I whispered through chattering teeth. But I grinned despite the cold. We where in.

"Oh, how lovely" Lily

"Oh, how lovely" Lily sarcasticly commented as she saw what the others were doing. She didnt bring anything with her except her dragon, warm clothes, and a small knife. She jumped into the water(which felt like a thousand cold knives piercing her skin) and swam toward the floating Thunderdrum.

I ggrinnedand shifted my saddle and packs to one arm, thankful that only my skrill actually needed a saddle, and reached out my hand to help Lily on to the thundwerdrums back. "Pretty cold huh?" I whispered, pulling her up.

​Rebecca grimaced as she

​Rebecca grimaced as she watched all of the students pile on to the dark thunderdrum's back. She knew they were hardy dragons, but she worried that the poor thing was going to collapse trying to carry all that weight, and it would be even harder because how unevenly it was distributed.
​She hovered there for a moment, hesitating if she wanted to climb aboard, but it didn't seem like there would be enough room for her. Hiccup and Astrid were huddled together on Toothless, as he could't fly on his own, and Eret looked a little uncomfortable on that silent girl's thunderdrum, being squished between all of the others. Sandstone wavered, giving a low grumble in diismay of having to abandon the group. This was't supposed to happen.

Before she could make a move to drop onto the tidal class' back, her head jerked at the sound of a body hitting the water, and a identical sound followed soon after. Rheileen and Lily had fallen into the icy water, and Rebecca watched as their bodies gave little shivers as they climbed onto the dragon. Now the geothermal springs that Hiccup mentioned would really do some good, and she looked forward to taking a quick dip to warm her frozen bones, and she was sure as Odin's might that those two poor girls were going to need it as well.
​Rebecca moved carefully from Sandstone's saddle and moved down to his legs, where her partner caught her swiftly with her talons before she could plunge into the arctic depths, and released her gently down onto the thunderdrum's back. She nodded her thanks to her dragon, and he flew over to the other rider;s companions.
​She was caught at the very back of the black thunderdrum, and water lapped at her boots. She pulled her satchel closer to her body, preferring her supplies not to be soaked. She just hoped that they didn;t go underwater, and that they got to those springs fast.

Tahno

Tahno cocked her head to the side like an owl, before she wrote to Audra

If that's what he choose to do

She shook her head irritatedly as she erased the message and quickly add

If he think it suit him

It was hard to expressed with word, but Tahno was somewhat dissaprove the way tamed dragons act accordingly to the riders. Hovering about until they're told what to do. It's one of her bad quality to secretly hoping that all viking(at least the one that like dragon)would all have the same mindset as her; Trusting the dragons, let them do their own thing. Don't underestimate their ability to decided wheter to aid if they really feel like the viking has earn it. Trust them that they know what they're doing and wouldn't sabotage the plan. it's like she's on the constant trust fall with her dragons. Already know that her other dragons are stalking her and would always be there even if she hasn't ask them or even if they're making themselve unseen.

She gestured at the saddleless dragons up in the air and tell them;

If they want to they will follow us on their own, with their own WAY

She was about to write something next when heard a flash and was flabberghasted, the kid fell into the freezing water. She hurried to help her up Manta and have to figure something fast. She could get into hypothemia as she fumbled about another splash are sound and this time Tahno is even more flabberghasted

Are you out of your mind!? she was tempting to add if the kid is having a death wish jumping into cold water as if it's some kind of game. that's one way if you want to have a hypothemia. now they have to unnesscesary race against time and coming up with the plan even faster. why did she has to even act like a mother hen anyway, she didn't ask for this. not to mention that the splash's probably going to get other tidal resident's attention. A thunderdrum is one thing, but two human in the water---

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

I winced at the thunderdrum riders stern looks. But my temper was also flaring beneath the surface. I let it, it warmed me up a little.

What right did she have to treat me like this anyway? I !ran, I slipped whole obeying her commands! 

But the sensible part bof me said she was right. I had messed up, and most likely given away our position.

Storm seemed to be sensing my discomfort and frustration, as when I looked up I saw her sparking violently.

I gave a short call, not with my whistle, but with my mouth. It was as close as I had managed to get to a Triple strykes growl. //Go. Fly alone, separate and meet later!//

I gripped my throat gently. The cold water and harsh schreech I had to make to imitate a dragon made my throat ache. I smiled a little though as Stryker bearded the others away.

Sanda's seemed hesitant, but eventually obeyed. Following Stryker closely, with Zifinia at her side.

"N-no kidding!" Lily replied

"N-no kidding!" Lily replied rather loudly. Then she heard another splash. Another one of the riders had dropped into the water. Now her mind went back to fireplaces and saunas and the sun and summer and anything with warmth in it. Unfortunately, this only made her feel colder. "Why do we have to jump in freezing cold water and that son of a Haddock doesnt?" Lily was now feeding this thought in her head.

Ookan whoke up on Squashes back. They where there! And they where going swimming! She smiled and jumped down to join tthe others. It looked like someone had brought a thunderdrum! What fun! And all the dragons where flying to their own fun!

She smiled as she ell. "Whoohooo!" She whooped. This was fun.

She splashed in the cold water, and was helped on to the thunderdrum by Eret, who frowned at her. Ookan didn't notice. "Look, a snake dragon!" She grinned."Hello snake dragon."

A whispering death looked thsm. Ookan waved. What a pretty dragon!

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

I winced as a loud "Whoohoo!" Broke the stillness, followed by a loud splash. The new girl, with all the jewels was swimming towards us with a huge smile on her face. Eret frowned and helped her on board. I knelt nearby and pulled an extra cloak out of one of mybags and wrapped it around her. She would freeze shurely, being bare foot and short sleeved.

"Look, a snake dragon." She smiled innocently and pointed over Erets shoulder. The former dragon hunter and I turned in the same moment and saw the whispering death slowly moving towards us. I flinched, but refrained from yelling at the girl. We had all made this mistake right?

No. But still, I frowned and walked closer too it. I bowed a little and stretched my arms to my sides. "Play nice and it might leave us alone." I whispered. Before turning tyo the dragon again. //Hello great Bouldertooth,// I paused, not knowing what to say. What could I say? //We mean no harm, we are...// I frowned, what where we doing?

Audra

     Audra nods at Tahno and looks up at her night terror. "It's your choice," she says. He squeals in disapproval and stubbornly perches on her skrill's head. Lightning Storm, Mistletoe, and Orchestra moan their farewells, flying off, not bothering to wait for anyone else. Skullcrusher follows, roaring his own goodbye from next to Lightning.

     Audra adjusts her sword, Tempest, from her back to her side, just in case. Her cloak whips back in the brutal winds, promising snow. They need to hurry now, before it gets dark. Oh who am I kidding, she thinks, it's always night here.

     Hiccup and Astrid follow the dragons on Toothless, who is nearly impossible to see in the black void of the sky. Impatience fills the cold rider. She envies the chief. He'll get warmth earlier than the rest of them. Audra avoids looking at the sea, hoping that it won't decide to swallow her into it's cold, dark depths anytime soon.

     Uncomfortable, Audra calls out to the others to distract herself. "Alright, it's now or never."

Tahno and Manta

Tahno took a slight step back seeing the skrill's agressive reaction, lower herself down to look small while keeping firm eyes on the dragon expressing; I'm backing off/ I am harmless/ I am uncomfortable with your agressive

the third splash happened and Tahno lower her masked face into her palm. She gave up. She want out. Hiccup can handle this on his own. She didn't event noticed the whispering death cept in on them until she heard Manta low warning rumble. This is the disgrace, to allow her back being wide open like this. But before Tahno could come up with any plan at all. One of the soaked girl stepped up and....trying to communicate with it. Tahno doesn't know dragonese. She found a way to read and express through body language. It's more about letting them know how she feel rather than express the specific words. She watch both the girl and the dragon anxiously. Doesn't sure if the girl really know what she's doing. She seemed to have a bit of trouble though.

Tahno could only do the same thing she did when Storm surround herself with lightining thretenly. Backing off a lower herself but she's only one person in the group that could as well be seen as a threat to this bolder class dragon. Manta decided to help out a little though. He let out another low rumble, this time at the whispering death. It's almost like he's backing the dragonese talking girl up and calmly asking for direction.

Dragonese

Ookan smiled at the dragon. "Hello nice dragon." She wanted to touch it. But couldn't. The one girl kept making weird noises, Ookan smiled and pet the thunderdrum beneath her. "She's funny huh?"

Dragonese

Finally I found my dragon tongue and continued, hearing the thunderdrum beneath me also back me. //We mean no harm.// he said. I smiled. Looks like I did have help.

I continued, gently looked the dragon in the eye, almost pleadingly. //We mean no harm to you great Bouldertooth, we seek our fallen friends, who have disappeared. We only want to find our lost pack mates and return to our nest.//

The whisperer seemed to listen to me a moment. Before snarling.

I knew I would look stupid, and it made me blush red beneath my mask, but I raised my head, exposing my neck and offering my vulnerability. Showing I was not a threat. The whisperer backed a little.

//This is not your nest, leave and you will not be harmed.//

I frowned. What to say now?

I didn't get a chance. Before I knew what was happening Eret jumped in. 

Not understanding our conversation, or that the dragons growl was ment in warning, the former hunter attacked it mercilessly, pulling me out of its path as it fired back at us.

A shot from Toothless sent it away. But that didn't help any. Now we where a threat.

"What where you thinking!" Eret raged, looking me clear in the face, "that dragon could have killed you!"

I frowned, burning with embarrassment and frustration. "I was trying to annonce our peaceful intentions! It wasn't trying to harm us! Just warn us away!"

Eret glared at me and from under my hood I glared back.

Eret and Rhei were giving

Eret and Rhei were giving each other deadly glances, as Lily watched. Ookan looked like she wanted to touch the Whispering Death, and Tanho looked disstressd. She opened her mouth to speak, but nothing came out. She wondered if that Ookan girl knew about Screaming Deaths; so Lily turned to the girl, "You ever seen a Screaming Death before?" She tried not to smirk while talking. The fact that this girl didnt know Whispering Deaths were dangerous gave her a bunch of ideas.

Audra

     Audra looks on, absolutely bewildered at the chaotic scene before her. She mutters something under her breath, becoming frustrated at their slow progress. She glares at the whispering death, watching it hiss at their group. 

     "Like I said before," she announces with a clear voice, "we need to get moving."

     Audra hesitates before she can say anything else. What was she thinking? She isn't the leader of this group. Eret is. But he's not stepping up to the mound like she expected. And now he doesn't have an ounce of her trust after he attacked that dragon. She seethes, trembling with impatience.

Lilian

Lilian watched around herself. A rider jumped right into the cold water. That wasn't good. The water was freezing and it would get them all to freeze if they didn't get past. 

The Thunderdrum was very overpacked now. Maybe she should've taken Silver or another dragon, as all the Vikings weighed the poor thing down. 

Suddenly, a Whispering Death could be seen. A fascinating species, sure, but not when it was against them. 

Rheileen, surprisingly, knew how to speak dragonese. Lilian could understand most of what they were saying by reading body gestures and voice tone, and kept her eye out for specific sounds so she could learn the language. She had always learned languages fairly quickly, being able to speak four already. 

The Whispering Death seemed to be negotiating with Rheileen. Maybe this would end without a fight. It was better that way. 

But Eret, the guy she had a reason not to like, jumped in front of Rheileen and shoved her out of the way.

"What are you doing Eret!" Lilian cried. The Whispering Death was mad, shooting the crowd and spiking up its tail. Then it flew away, as a shot from Toothless rang out. 

"Like I said before, we need to get moving," the girl who seemed to be the one to know most said. 

Lilian nodded. 

"Let's hurry, that dragon will probably raise the alarm," Lilian said, glancing at Eret, who was glaring at Rheileen. 

They were fairly close to the shoreline, with icy glaciers here and there to land on as well. 

"Maybe we could sneak around using the icebergs, few other dragons patrolling would see us unless they are overhead," she added.

Ookan shookher head, smiling, and started babbling about how cool whispering deaths must he, how beautiful, how she wanted to touch one. And popping in and out of Lily's face as she did so, not aware of the conflict around her.

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

I frowned a moment and broke my glare at Eret to turn to Lillian. "OK, that might work for some of you, but if you haven't noticed..." I gestured at my dark clothes, "I'm gonna stand out against all that snow."

Eret scoffed. "Maybe dress appropriately next time." I growled, "I dressed for hiding in shadows, not snowdrifts. Plus, last I heard, we where going inside a dark cave, and in case you haven't heard, white stands out in the darkness."

I was biting back a string of rude comments as I said it, and for a moment I though we would return to a staring contest. But we didn't.

I looked around quickly. Not only was I beginning to feel my pants freeze up, but the cold was also making absolutally every part of me that was scarred hurt. Which, to be honest, ment everything hurt. And more then anything I just wanted to lay down and drink something warm, not argue with a former trapper.

That's when it hit me. "OK, um...yeah, snow drifts, perfect!"

I was already frozen, why not go along with it? It wasn't like my clothes would stay black when I was frozen.and I was already cold as could be, it couldn't get much worse.

Audra

     Audra snickers at their conflict, observing the exchange with amusement. She claps her hands together and blows hot air on them, hoping to shield her frozen fingers from the frigid air. Audra already misses her dragons, knowing that they are most likely at the Ice Caves now, warming up by the warm springs . . . 

     The thunderdrum lurches forward, and she stumbles, but quickly regains her balance. Audra rips her sword from its sheath, seeing a few shivertooths fly toward them, curious about the whispering death. The great tidal class dragon's speed increases and she realizes that it took off because of them. Tempest shines in her grip when she nudges the former trapper. He turns to her with narrowed eyes.

     "I don't trust you," she hisses, voice barely a whisper, "but you need to think of a plan before we all get in real trouble."

     Eret glances at the approaching dragons. "Any ideas?" he asks.

     She facepalms.

"Ahh, interesting.." As Lily

"Ahh, interesting.." As Lily listened to Ookan's babling,she siliently marked in her head; "Next scientific experiment: Ookan and a wild Screaming Death". Her wet cloths were starting to feel stiff, and her fingers were already numb. She called over to Eret "Hey Eret!! Son of Eret!! If we dont get inside were all going to end up as life-sized popsicles for those Whispering Deaths!!"

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

It was stupid. I knew it was. And even if I had already been planning on doing it, I hadn't intended on asking the others too do it too. But. My plans where always crazy.

"Into the water!" I called, there was no need for stealth now. "Soak yuourselves and then roll in the snow." We can use it as camaflauge, and it will decrease our body temperature and scent! They won't be able to find you!"

To display my crazy plan i put into action. Seeing the shivertooths diving down towards us, and Eret was right in their path, I threw myself forward at the water, dragging Eret down with me.

For a moment we sank beneath the surface , then bobbed back up spluttering. "What was that for!" He growled. I out a finger to my lips and pushed myself towards the bank. Which promptly upon writing at, I fell face first in the snow.

I rolled about a second and stood to show the others. The cold water helped the snow cling to my clothes, thus, I was a living snowman. Eret followed my lead, and I gestured for the others to join us.

As the shivertooths swooped past again I knocked Eret and myself to the ground, we blended right in with our surroundings.

Audra

     Audra doesn't hesitate to follow their lead, diving into the water. She sheaths Tempest before leaping off of the thunderdrum. The water tosses her violently. It hungrily tries to wash over her.

     She belly-flops into the snow, not caring how bad she was shivering. They needed to get to the Ice Caves. Now. "Come on!" she calls to the remaining vikings. Audra sprints across the ice drifts, dragging Rhei and Eret with her, a boneknapper now in pursuit. It spots them when it rounds the corner, screaming to draw attention.

     She throws them against an ice wall as it zooms past, claws outstretched. Audra pushes them on as it circles in the air. She can only hope that the others are already on shore. Fear warms her in the darkness as she spots the opening to the Caves.

She saw Rhei, Eret, and Audra

She saw Rhei, Eret, and Audra almost get eaten by a Boneknapper. "Ehhh ok, clever plan." Lily threw herself into the water and then rolled onto the snow. But before she could start walking to where the others were, something hit her from behind, causing her to face-plant into the snow. "Spvvvvvvvvv-cough cough-!!!!"Her mouth was filled with snow,  "Im gonna kick the coal out of whoever did tha...."Finaly she stood up and saw what had hit her;the boneknapper stood 5 feet from where she was. "Heh heh never mind, ill, uh, just be leaving then" Lily started to walk towards the water, but the wild dragon pursued and fired.  She screamed as she dove into the water. It did not pursue. " Stupid dragon" Now how was she supposed to get to the caves? It was now circling above her waiting for the right moment to strike.

Ookan is the jewel of all!

Ookan smiled and jumped into the water, almost shrieking g as she turned to Lily, "Its to cold." She complained. But in a second she couldn't have cared, having been hauled ashore by someone else, and flopped around in the snow. As Ahdra dragged Rhei and Eret away she followed.

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

I almost shrieked as Audra pulled Eret and myself over to a snow bank. I mentally made a note to thank her for it too, after I saw the huge boneknapper that had almost caught us.

But in a moment of was mentally face palming, Lily had been caught, and was stuck in the water. I frowned in thought and turned to Eret, "Eret, take Audra and Ookan to the caves, I'm gonna cover Lily." I whispered, my saddlebags and fishing around for my wrist bracers. In a moment I had them, and shoved my pack laden bag at Ookan. "Hold this please."

 

I motioned for Eret to get going, and without a second thought he grabbed Audra and Ookan and dragged them to the cave entrance. Meanwhile, I was buckling on my bracers, and praying for them to be dry. I adjusted them just so and ran out toward Lily, "Come here big boy." I called gently to the boneknapper, my bracers slowly releasing chemicals into the air that ingnited on contact.the flames hovered just over my hands as I moved them around slowly, hoping to catch the boneknapper attention. "Come on buddy."

The Boneknapper landed behind

The Boneknapper landed behind Rhei, and Lily seized her chance and,quietly steped around the Boneknapper. "Come on pal, stay where you are" Finaly she was behind both Rhei and the wild dragon. Lily hoped it wouldnt eat her friend, let alone everyone else. Although she had flamable rope and powder in her boot, she doubted that it would work in these wet conditions.

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

I smiled a little as I watched Lilly creep past, the giant boneknapper seemed to be more curious about the strange fire making snow creature before him. As soon as Lilly was safe I hurried back over too her, and the entrance to the ice caves. 

The snow about my hands was gone, and my arms had lost wquite a bit of tyheirs too. But I didn't mind. For now it looked like we where safe. "Is everyone here?" I asked Lilly. Where was the other girl? The one who didn't talk? And where was Lillian?

"Oh for Odin's sake"​Rebecca

"Oh for Odin's sake"
​Rebecca watched as here comrades willingly dunked themselves into the icy sea water, and then proceed to roll in the fresh snow to get a covering of white. There was no way in anyone's sane mind that she was going to get cold and wet on her own acord. If she copied their move, there would be no way she'd be able to push herself forward. The only type of soaking she would tolerate would be that of stripping herself of her already damp clothing and then going for a dip in the heated springs. 
​She hopped off of the thunderdrum and onto the snowbank, waiting for the group to proceed onto the caves, until suddenly a boneknapper attacked! The scene was hectic, and Rebecca saw Eret grabbing Audra and Ookan and ushering them towards the ice caves, while Rhei braced herself for a fight with the bone-armored dragon. The blonde girl held her stance, and soon Lily joined her, preparing to attack the wild beast from behind. 
​The Boneknapper had Rhei in its focus, the reptile crouching low as it eyed its human foe, ready to attack in a moment's notice.

​(edit)

​But then Rhei miraculously made some fire appear from her hands, succesfully distracting the dragon. Rebecca wouldn't be suprised if the boneknapper was more confused than mesmerized, afterall, how was a human able to create fire?
​Rhei and Lily successfully made it to the entrance of the ice caves, the stony cavern providing sanctuary from the beasts outside. Rebecca followed suit, creeping around the dragon and into the entrance. Inside she saw most of the group, Hiccup and Astrid, Eret with Ookan and Audra, and Lily and Rhei who had just made it inside. But Lillian and the mute girl were no where in sight. Rebecca tried not to worry, knowing they were capable riders. Chances are they were already deeper in the cave.
​"That was some really good quick thinking." Rebecca paced towards Rhei, patting her on the shoulder, "You're gonna have to show me how you did that later." She gave the blonde a friendly smile, and then gave Lily the same. The both of them were drenched, and Rebecca looked at the rest of the group. Everyone else looked miserable as well, their bodies suffering from the freezing dampness of their clothes.
​"I think it's time we take all take a well earned rest. I'm going to the springs, I'm freezing. Besides, we need to meet up with our dragons." 
​Rebecca turned from the group, following the only path that led deeper into the caverns, holding promise of the relaxing heated pools of natural mineral water. Her steps made clacks against the stone, their sound echoing softly off the walls. The air was becoming more humid, and water dripped from the stalagmites, showing signs that she was drawing near. She rounded the corner, and the warm flickering light of dragon-fire cast shadows over the opening. Rebecca looked into the smaller cave that seperated from the main one, all of the dragons piled in there, anxiously awaiting their rider's returns. Sandstone perked his large pale head up, the smell of his partner seeping into his senses. 
​Smiling, Rebecce ran over to the typhoomerang, and gently stroked his jaw. The beast seemed suprisingly happy to see her and Rebecca said nothing to ruin the moment. His massive body was curled around Rhei's skrill, using his wings to shelter them from any incoming cold drafts. It was kind of cute, but it was just the typhoomerang's defensive instincts kicking in.
​She turned away from them, the warmth of the spring drawing her in. Yanking off a boot, she dipped her toe in, and the temperature was oh so perfect. Rebecca then quickly discarded the rest of her garments and set them by the fire, warming them, before stepping into the springs and letting the heat heal her aching muscles. For once, it was peaceful, and she hoped her group would hurry up to join her before things went bad again.

Audra

     Audra sighs deeply with relief once they are inside. She looks around, spotting her skrill perched high on one of the overhangs. She frowns at the brooding dragon. He only glares back and turns around, shuffling out of sight. Only Nightstorm comes to greet his trainer, chirping a welcome as he flies around her. Stormfly squawks a welcome at her as she struts past, running toward Astrid. 

     A melodious voice turns her focus onto her death song, who is now standing in front of her. The beautiful, butterfly-like creature nudges her eagerly, and Audra climbs on. They fly up to another overhang neighboring the one Lightning Storm is on. Before stripping down, she looks at her dragons expectantly. "Privacy, please?" she asks politely. The beasts immediately understand and circle around her, spreading their wings to make sure no one can see. Nightstorm sits atop Mistletoe, narrowing his eyes at everyone below them. 

     After successfully taking off her damp clothes, she sinks into a pool, goosebumps racing up and down her body in pleasure. The warmth makes her toes curl with delight. Heat seeps through every inch of her worn out body.

Tahno and Manta

Tahno is the last the lingered behind. Fools She thought as she watched them jumped off Manta back one by one and retreat into the cave. This is what they came up with after using Manta as a platform? These kids has underestimate the deadliness of mother nature. The don't even take their wet clothes off.

after the last one, Rebecca if Tahno recalled, seem to be the only one with the common sense left and Manta regain full mobility again. Tahno lower herself to hold firmly onto one of the thunderdrum spike, letting him know that's she isn't going anywhere. Manta took note and greatfully leap off from the water, happy that he doesn't have to worry if his rider was to try her luck in the frozen water. but they're still follow suit by a bunch of Shivertooth. Tahno looked behind grimly. Well might as well help them out one last time as they part. she could be the great decoil. Then after that she will operated alone like how it has always been. Maybe she might even find more about the raver and the lost student all on her own.

Made up her mind. The muted viking and her thunderdrum began leading the shivertooth to the merry chase, away from the ice cave until they all disappear from sight. For the other, this seem like a heroic sacrifice, but in Tahno's mind as she could only chuckle darkly to herself when thinking back to the stupid decision those riders made.

Can't believe after all this time I seem to be the only one with self-preservation left.

 

((Tahno will only went MIA from the time being and will show up later))

Rebecca watched as Audra

Rebecca watched as Audra dipped her body into the soothing warmth of the spring, her skrill's wing obstructing most of her figure from her view. It was rather touching, that her bond was so close with her dragons that they understood how fickle the social norms of human society could be. The pale haired girl's slight mass sent ripples of water in every direction, the steam rising from its surface protecting her modesty.
​Sending a relaxed smile her way, Rebecca hoped it would help take down any walls that were built up during the earlier scuffle so that they could talk without any tension. Rebecca looked over to the fire, and the group's dragons were still gathered around it. Sandstone remained in his spot, comfortablly curled around the others. She noticed Audra's dragons, all of which were very impressive, especially her titan skrill. The dragon, quite literally, bristled with power, and the light of the fire shone beautifully off his scales.
​The sound of footsteps echoed in the cavern, and Rebecca turned her head to see Eret pacing into the clearing. He was soaked to the bone, and the former dragon-trapper had the most miserable expression on his face. That was, before he took in the sight of two young women in the spring, relaxing in its warmth. When his gaze settled on Audra, he blushed and jerked his head in the opposite direction, nodding a greeting to Skullcrusher, who only chortled deeply in response. It was quite amusing to see such a tall, tough-appearing man get flustered so easily, and Rebecca couldn't hold back a snort.
​Rebecca returned her attention to Audra, shifting her eyes back on to the girl. She noted the girl's unique hair colour, the pale silvery tone bouncing light off of it. It was quite beautiful. She moved her hand up and grazed the burn scar near the right of her neck, before bringing it up to adjust her tied up hair so it wouldn't get wet.
​Not being able to keep back the questions any longer, she let it slip,
​"Hey Audra, how come you and Eret are so tense with each other. I mean, I think he tries to get on your nerves cause he likes you. The guy is a bit pompous and child-like," Rebecca chuckled before continuing, "And besides, he's pretty attractive, I'd go for him if I were you."

 

((psst, I love tahno she's mega cool))

Audra

     Audra swivels toward Rebecca, surprised as she had ever been. That was the most bizarre thing anyone had ever told her. If anything, she should ignore her question, but it left her completely shook.

     She clears her throat. "What do you mean? I don't trust him, and he annoys me because of that. That doesn't necessarily mean that he . . . likes me." The last two words left a bitter flavor on her tongue. Audra was never good with expressing her feelings, and this situation had no exceptions. 

     At the same time, she was already warming up to these people, feeling more and more comfortable by the second. It left her scared, terrified even, that she had let herself easily trust these people. Even so, it was nice to be able to talk to someone that could respond back . . . no offense to her dragons.

 

((Tahno is a wonderful character indeed! In fact, everyone's characters are enjoyable to be around :D))

"Here Hulky Hulky Hulky!!"

"Here Hulky Hulky Hulky!!" Lily was now searching through the caves for her dragon- unfortunately, he didnt nnot come. Then she spotted Audra and Rebeca in the springs, and Eret on a rock blushing slightly.Lily wasnt too found of bathing with others in the same room, so silently she walked deeper down into the caves until she came to a small, hidden spring. There she took off her layers which had icicles hanging off them and slowly inched herself into the hot water. Her black hair was now sleek and shiny against her thin, pale body. Because her hair was often a mess, it usualy looked short;but when it got wet, it was longer. She had not, however, unwrapped the arming that had always covered most of her left arm. Soon, Lily's head was the only thing that was above the water, and her knees where curled up against her frail figure. She closed her eyes and started to daydream.

"What you get isn't your choice,what you do with it, is"

I smiled as we walked into the caves, but then qui kly blushed at the sight of the others undressed in the springs. Lily seemed to have the same reaction, Nd wondered off by herself. For a moment I was tempted to follow her, but the instant my dragons saw me there was a scuffle.

Before I knew it I was being held in one of Stryker's tails while ha and Zifinia gave me a good cleaning from the snow covering my body. Sanda's also obliged by helping Storm create a small fire. I sighed in contentment and sat down. Undoing by birade and shaking off the snow.

Zifinia, the on!y dragon who was used to fur, seemed delighted, and promptly began grooming it, I chuckled, even though Eret was openly gaping at the strange sight, like it was weird or something.

Storm nosed me down, and to scomfort her that I was okay I shot a blast of flames at the fire in front of me.making it dance. If a dragon could sigh she would have. I chuckled as I felt Zifi's teeth combing through my hair and the warm fire in front of me.

It took a while, but when they where all done I stood and walked over to my satchels, after taking off my bracers and pulling out a spare tunic, which I laid over a rock near the fire to warm.

I hesitated only a moment before walking towards the springs, shedding my cape and cold, gloves ,and boots before dipping my toss in. I smiled and sighed. The water was perfect. Well almost. The only problem was depth. I could float, but swimming......that I had problems with. Unless I was in the shadows. 

It seemed shallower near where Rebecca and Audra where, and while the two floated nearby each other I could hear them chatting a little, I grinned. Maybe I'd go over there.

But I apparently had no choice in the matter, as I felt myself being lifted in the air, and when I looked down saw the Stryker had caught me in one of his tails. I chuckled as he sat me on his back and dove into the water.

The warm springs lapped around my hips and when I laid down against his back I could feel the warm water soothingly every ache. Once we reached the other shore I dismounted and smiled a thank you at him. He warbled in return and dove into the water, splashing all of us. I chuckled again and smiled towards the others.

Nweh

Staring over my rock, I look at the riders from a safe distance away.

Though, maybe not safe enough.

One of the girls-I gathered her name was Rhei- looked over and I think she spotted me.

I quickly dove back behind the rock.

I wasn't sure about my place in the whole propaganda, me having been welcomed into the School warmly.

I was also welcomed into the Ravers and told to spy n the newcomers...

If I get found out, then I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

I brush my hands over my swords, just to be sure they're still there.

Bad habit.

I just hope the Rhei girl doesn't come looking ...
