Allyssa looked up, and closed

Allyssa looked up, and closed her book again. "Oh, hi Boe."

Tempest woke up and chirped a greeting.

Class shall begin...somewhat..

"Okay, so now that everyone's settled down, the first thing I'd like to say...Yes. Yes I'm a bit young to be teaching here," Aylen began, her voice gradually deadpanning as she got to the bit about her age. "If you have a problem with that, perhaps you'd like to experience first-hand the searing magnesium heat of a Deadly Nadder."

 

At a quick gesture from her hand, Southstorm thrust his head back into the classroom through the window, giving off a medium-loud roar that nevertheless startled all the students in the room. Shouts of surprise and terror arose as an orangey light began forming in the dragon's muzzle, and as they watched, they realised the Nadder was prepared to fire.

 

Apparently smirking, Southstorm cut the flame and shut his muzzle, chirping in a manner similar to laughing.

 

The classroom was dead silent, with terrified faces frozen on several students. Aylen smirked, asking sarcastically, "Anyone? No? Good."

 

Turning to the chalkboard, she began scribbling more words onto it, realising with amusement that the class was still trying to comprehend the idea of a dragon staring at them in the room, as if daring them to say or do anything out of the rules. Oh, that's right. Aylen hadn't set the rules yet. But she thought they'd already got the basic one.

 

"I hope you've found your voices and nerves!" she said teasingly, turning around with a smile on her face. "We'll start with page 3."

Metal, you sure take a lot of rescuing! XD

((Or defusing, depending on how you want to look at it. Pretty sure I'm about to make an enemy or three at the School for standing up for you... *sigh*

 

Also, Carotius... Sheesh, you're a harsh teacher! XD That wasn't very nice, scaring the pants off all those students - they need encouraged and trained, not intimidated... ;-P))

 

Looking around the circle, Magnus saw a spectrum of expressions written on the students’ faces: fear, disgust, scorn, hatred, anger. Despite the gravity of the situation, he couldn’t suppress a small chuckle. “Looks like your reputation precedes you, my friend.” That last word sparked a flame of indignation in the hair-trigger field of students, and as the muttering grew louder and the circle began to close in, Magnus saw Metal reach inside his cloak with a grim look on his face. “Did he just say ‘friend’?...Does he have any idea who this guy is?...He knows him!...Did you hear what he did to the school?...They don’t belong here in the School!...” The burly blacksmith rolled his eyes in frustration, and suddenly found himself at the center of what looked like a lynch mob, next to a well-trained assassin who he knew had no qualms about using weapons of all kinds. This isn’t going to end well… 
 
“All right, that’s ENOUGH!” Magnus boomed, and the circle fell quiet with a tentative step back. “Yes, I know Metal. Yes, I know the Black Wanderer’s reputation! It also seems I know something you all don’t. He’s still human, just like the rest of you.” He straightened up as he turned to face another part of the crowd, now towering over most of the other students. “Not too long ago, I risked my life to help him rescue someone he loved. I saw a side of him that few people have, and rest assured, Metal isn’t the heartless monster you all think he is. Yeah, he’s had a checkered past, and I’m still not quite sure what to think about that, but I happen to know he’s not the only one here.” Magnus glared at some of the more aggressive-looking students. “Anyone who thinks they’re perfect is welcome to throw the first punch. But it lands on ME.” 
 
By this point, the Great Hall was dead silent - even the dragons were hushed, and you could’ve heard a fork drop on the other end of the hall. Magnus was the first to break the long and uneasy pause, shooting glares around the now-enlarged circle that had backed away from the pair. “That’s what I thought,” he muttered. “Slugbug! Let’s go, buddy.” The high-speed flapping of small wings was heard from the other end of the hall, and the fiery red-and-orange Gronckle came in for a landing right behind Metal as Magnus turned on his heels and headed toward the door. The hushed crowd parted in front of the procession, with the muscular Viking leading and his dragon protectively bringing up the rear. As they exited the building, the astonished chattering of students could be heard swelling behind them as the large doors closed. “Metal,” Magnus sighed as he turned around, “you’re really gonna have to do something about that reputation of yours.”

Inna barely stood on her

Inna barely stood on her feet. So it turns out it's possible for people not to recognise her. Weird, will take a while to get used to it...

"Oh c'mon you... whatever your name is...!" Inna said giving Allyssa an offensed look. "I am standing right here! Or at least I was the last time I checked!" She exclaimed.

Long story... *SPOILER*

((The first six chapters of this RP in addition to his "Tale of the Wanderers" series, to be precise, but here's the gist of it. Metal was raised as a warrior and assassin literally from childhood, and before joining the School made a living as a contract killer, the Black Wanderer, out of desperation and necessity. That name is the most feared and despised in all the Barbarian Archipelago, but most people don't realize it's Metal because it's his job to hide his true identity. In addition to that, he singlehandedly ended the Outcast attack but destroyed most of the School in the process, so even people who only know him as a student don't like him. The bitter icing on the cake is that Metal obliterated an entire Roman armada by blowing up a gas-filled mountain in Ch. 6, but had to sacrifice every last member of his tribe (the Wanderers) to do so, along with a not-insignificant number of other Vikings. Metal was the only survivor besides the Vikings that retreated and made it out in time. So... yeah. With that kind of reputation following him around, friends are hard to come by and enemies are made automatically.))

"Well, nice to meet you

"Well, nice to meet you Allyssa!" Inna noticed that Allyssa is not very social. "I suppose you're not as happy about meeting new people... well, I guess I won't bother you for too long..."

"One last question, just in case you know," Though I am pretty sure you don't. "Has another girl, looking like me- with two braids instead of one, recently been seen around here?" She asked starting to get a bit nervous. The last thing she needed was for her sister to come and ruin everything just when Inna had started a new beggining.

Metal sighed "oh? How do you

Metal sighed "oh? How do you suppose I go about that?" Metal didn't wait for a response but instead said his farwell to Magnus and left before adding in his usual void tone "congratulations the black wanderer now owes you a favour ... so if you need someone killed..." Metal gave a small smirk and departed wondering what he should now do with himself with no enemies left to fight

"Thanks a lot! ^_^" Inna said

"Thanks a lot! ^_^" Inna said and felt like her day couldn't get any better. But guess she shouldn't have, since right when Inna was going to say "goodbye" to Allyssa, her beloved dragon companion came out of nowhere with a face "There you are! I was about to look for someones day to ruin!" But Inna just rolled her eyes.

"Meet my dragon, Allyssa, this is Rosethorn!" She said and looked at the blue Deadly Nadder next to Allyssa. "What's the name of your dragon?"

"Ohh, that's a pretty name allright!" Inna admited. "It was nice to meet you, Allyssa! Though I guess I'll go and see other students as well! See ya!" She said and hopped on her dragon. In the next moment they we're both ten feet up in air and Inna waved Allyssa for the last time as she flew away.

"She was a nice girl, right Rose?" Rosethorn had barely met Allyssa but like most dragons, she could feel what person was good and what goof. So she shook her head in agreement.

Ready or not, Aylen, here I come!

 

Magnus opened his mouth to answer Metal’s query, but the cynical Viking walked away before he had a chance to formulate a response. Okay, then… I guess that settles that. He figured it might be a good idea to go somewhere else until the mob in the Great Hall simmered down a bit - he’d done quite a few flight lessons recently, and the only other class he knew of that was currently in session was the archiving class. It was a good enough place to ride out the storm, if only because the more warrior-like Vikings would never even consider sitting through it. With that, he set off toward the classroom buildings, his dragon close behind. 
 
Walking down one of the hallways, Magnus heard quite the commotion coming from one of the classrooms. It didn’t sound much like an archiving class, but what other options were there? It had to be the right one, because it was the only one… Opening the door as softly as he could manage and motioning for Slugbug to quietly come sit beside him, he settled into one of the back row of benches and looked up front - lifting his eyebrows a bit at the sight of a young girl in front of the blackboard and a Deadly Nadder wearing a smug grin. Huh… when did Aylen start teaching? Glancing around at the students, Magnus spotted several sets of wide eyes and intimidated expressions, plastered on students that were scooted well back in their chairs. Better question… WHAT is she teaching them?

((Just some comedic relief XD))

((Oh, just thought I'd add some HTTYD-comedy in there, to highlight Aylen's deadpan and sarcastic humour ;) Plus, I was thinking about a line from 'Thor: The Dark World', so it somehow got thrown in there as well XD Btw, Josh. Not trying to be a Snotlout, but your grammar in your second post...about Aylen intimidating the students...heh.))

I know. Comedy is good, Mag just walked in without context...

((Which only adds to the comedy IMO. I was being slightly sarcastic; oh, the pleasures of the written word. Okay, grammarnazi... XP What, exactly, is improper about that sentence? As far as I can tell, its grammatical and syntactic structure is (if a little complicated) perfectly valid. Gauntlet thrown. XD Also, edited slightly to account for the fact that Slugbug was with Magnus when he made his grand exit - how I forgot about a 2.5-ton, red-and-orange Gronckle is beyond me. *facepalm*))

And omg, I just came home from watching The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug! DANG, I COULDN'T STOP ADMIRING SMAUG'S DESIGN. He's a freaking wyvern - it heavily reminds me of a Monstrous Nightmare!! :D

 

But in the end, this is all I had to say to my accompanying friend:

 

"When we talk about dragons, let's stick to Toothless and the others. Smaug's just too scary for me." XD))

((Smaug was incredible, possibly one of my favorite parts of the entire movie. I just sat there with my jaw on my lap the whole time. Design-wise, voice acting, motion capture... By far the most convincingly real dragon I've ever seen. I was blown away. And yeah, when he came out full-body my first thought was "BEARD OF THOR GIANT MONSTROUS NIGHTMARE RUN!!!" Just... Yeah.

-Insert Title-

In the midst of all the terrified stares, Aylen glimpsed a figure moving into the classroom from the back door. It was most definitely taller than her, burly with wavy blonde hair, clad by a dull grey-green shirt. Bluish-green eyes scanned the frozen classroom the moment the figure took a seat at the back row, and it wasn't long before it settled on Aylen herself.

 

Those same eyes blinked in mild surprise at her, as if questioning her presence in the classroom. With one more sweep at the students' expressions, they blinked again, this time as if indicating another question had popped in mind.

 

'He seems familiar...' she thought to herself, glancing at Southstorm, who had also noticed the newcomer. The Nadder cocked his head one side, before warbling a strangely cheery tune. 'Oh, that's why...'

 

"Good to see you again, Mag, though I'm...mildly surprised to actually see you here," she addressed the blacksmith Thorston nonchalantly, giving him a smile. "We were just about to begin lessons...if everyone could just get to their lovely seats."

 

The last few words were forced through gritted teeth, signalling the students to hurry back into theirs respective seats, textbooks all hurriedly flipped to the requested page. Room silent once more, except for a dragonesque laugh that Aylen knew the young Vikings were trying not to laugh at. Winking at Magnus, she turned back to the blackboard.

 

"So as we all know, the Vikings of Berk were more of warriors and battling out nearly everything they can think of, such that it's almost impossible to think anyone thought of sitting down to observe and record..."

 

As she went on to explain the early days of Berk's archiving, the youngest teacher of the School of Dragon couldn't help but notice a certain someone continously stealing glances at her. To be honest, besides making her skin prickle, she almost broke into an uncontrollable smile.

 

((*headdesk* I'm so sleepyyyy...))

Boe watched her friend turn to a new student and begin chatting with her. It was fine with herself, after all. She had been distant from her friends for some time now. Only seemed fair. So she just went to her dragon, sitting next to him and watching as the party went on.

Ayo~

She had to lose her fear of heights, sometime; but not today, appearently. She was too terrified and clung to her dragon the whole time, and her dragon was just gliding! She wasn't looking forward to her dragon becoming fully grown. Isabo groaned loudly, but Aroara was enjoying this way too much. The dragon didn't hesitate to scare it's rider by suddenly going faster. As well as suddenly spiraling downwards and beating it's wings loudly, as if being challenged by another dragon. The dragon chuckled every. time. Isabo cringed in fear.

Isabo was all to happy when the ordeal was over. As she put away all of the equipment, she looked at her dragon, and almost unleased her fury upon the beast, but instead 'gently' reprimanded it, then hugged it's head, and said sweetly, "oh, how troublesome you are. At least we know who's actually incharge.." She sighed and released it's head, and looked deep into it's eyes, and kissed it's forehead, and lead it outside, 'at least this time you didn't drop me'.

looking for something to do

M<etal wandered past people gently pushing them out the way as if wading through a swamp. He had gained a hood from his dorm before coming back to help hide his face causing a second disturbance and was now searching for anyone he recognised. He left the crowded area being all the more thankful for it and happened upon a familiar face sat by her self with a very intimadating dragon perched next to her. Metal aproched and sat down next to her without saying a word or making eye contact. He sighed beforefinally turning towrds the girl and saying in his usual dead tone "it's certainly been a while hasn't it, tell me, what is a married woman like yourself doing here? don't you have classes?"

((I like how my character is the only one not at the school so far XD I mean, I half meant it that way, cause plans, but it's still funny.))

 

Winds howled around the few trees that managed to gain a foothold this far up the mountain. Briarwolf ignored it, even though it chilled her body with cutting waves, whipping her with rain and snow both. Her cloak was wrapped tightly around her, though, and kept her warm enough despite the weather's best attempts to claim her. She kept going, climbing higher, climbing beyond the trees. Beyong the clumps of bush and grasses. Beyond the boulders. 

Her original intention was gone, replaced by something more powerful. The urge to climb, to reach the peak of a mountain, to prove it to herself that she could. Even with the storm that was beginning to overtake the landscape. Besides, there was no turning back now - no shelter lay between her and Berk, nor any reliable way to make one. So, she kept going.

Eventually a cliff appeared in front of her, leading up to the peak. It was worn fairly smooth by constand wind, but there were still footholds to be found if one knew where to look. Accepting the challenge, she quickly scaled the face of the mountain; nonetheless, it took a while to reach the ledge, thanks in part to the weather that kept trying to pluck her off and fling her to her death. It couldn't, though, and she finally managed to reach one hand over the edge and onto solid rock...

*SNORT!*

Eyes widened in surprise, and she froze against the side of the ledge. Something was obviously here already, and it didn't sound happy to be disturbed. Still....she couldn't go back down. Steeling herself, she brought herself up over the edge to find . . .

 

((So, yeah, completely isolated, random segment. I swear, my character will rejoin the others soon! Just, need to get mah dragon =P))

omg frozen is wonderful

Boe knew someone sat next to her, but she didn't want to say anything. But then he spoke and she looked over, seeing an all too familiar face. A faint smirk spread her liips. She couldn't help it. "I might. I might not. What is it to you?" Zirth looked over, growling a bit at Metal's presence, but Boethiah pet his side to calm him down again. "And you know this 'married woman' has a name, Metal."

Metal also almost let a smirk loose but instead retained his calm composure, "It's just that I may be a little upset if you havn't been keeping up with those archery lessons I taught last time we were here, and I know you have a name but Married woman sounds so much more mature than Boe" Metal kept watching the party and ignored the obviously hostile dragon peering down at him. "How long has it been, since I taugh you how to use a bow, and Astrid was always on your nerves and visa versa ... Prehaps you shou;d be out there, teaching"

There's a bit of a difference I hope

Boethiah shrugged. "I've been keeping myself busy," she admitted. "I use my bow when I have time...it seems like there's less and less of it now a days. Sort of sad, really.

"It seems like ages, doesn't it?" she chuckled lightly. "All that time ago. It doesn't seem like too long ago, we were just getting our dragons. And now...here we are. As for me teaching, I might.  I might not. I probably should be out there but I feel like there's something I might teach wrong to them." Boe shrugged. "And all that marriage talk...I'd rather you just call me Boe. I don't want to feel old yet."

prehaps

Metal rose to his feet, turned on his heels and faced Boethiah "well then, Boe, I hope to see you at the self defense class" He gave a short bow and turned away as he wallked he directed one last sentnce towards her as food for her thoughts "Join a class, make new freinds ... your old ones may not be around forever" and with that final parting Metal left Boethiah to her self. 

 

AS he steped outside he was greeted by a big wetvnose and flaring nostrils of a very large and hungry nadder, he climvbed up feeling the heat from his nadder wipe away his slight drowzyness from before and spoke softly to her "We do we do with ourselves now? In times of war we are heroes who people will blindly follow but in times of peace we are genocidel monsters" Metals nadder, Shadow wing, offered no response but instead dove towards the dorm room were outside lay a barrles of fish for trainers to feed their dragons

Of course, you can hidebecause of both

Boethiah watched as he walked off, hoping that she would, in fact, see him again at Self-Defence class. Zirth calmed himself as Metal left, his master giving him a jokingly stern look. "You could be nicer, you know," she scolded. "He didn't mean any harm. And besides...it's nice seeing an old friend." The nadder rubbed against her and she laughed slighlty, getting up. "All right, all right. I guess we can go for one small flight."

Easy there, carrot-girl...

 

((Ok, what is it with my character?! This is two times in two days! Seriously... Mace is usually the ladies' man! XD I was in a PM conversation with someone the other day (who shall remain nameless) who told me they were absentmindedly sketching him and asked if I realized how good-looking I made Magnus. O.O This was not planned or in any way intentional...))
 
As Aylen turned back to the chalkboard, Magnus thought he saw a wink on her face. That's... interesting. It's usually Mace the girls are flirting with... Dismissing the passing thought and leaning over a bit, he whispered to his dragon so as to not disturb the class. "You can lay down, Bug, as long as you're quiet - I think I'll stay here for the rest of the class." Slugbug snuffed slightly and laid down on the dirt floor; Magnus just hoped he didn't fall asleep, because the phrase "snoring like a Gronckle" had more than a bit of truth to it. 
 
As he settled in for the lecture, Magnus glanced out the window and saw a group of students walking by, many of whom he recognized from the Great Hall. Yup, that settles it. I'm staying right here... Quickly looking straight ahead again, he found himself inadvertently staring at Aylen - he averted his eyes, but it was too late; she'd seen, and was probably drawing all the wrong conclusions. The passing thought from earlier came sneaking back into his head, despite valiant attempts to evict it. You've gotta be kidding me... Magnus wanted to deny that there was anything there, but the subtle hint of a grin that tugged at her face every time she turned his direction wasn't something he could debate. He looked around the room at the various students, but because he didn't have a textbook to read Magnus found his gaze resting on the notes on the chalkboard - and, by association, the student-turned-teacher writing them.

Still a sleepy-head at the moment!

((Once again, you guys keep making me smile uncontrollably with all your posts! XD

 

I probably should have indicated that the one "stealing glances" at Aylen was Elder...but Josh, you inadvertently made the story more brilliant! DON'T YOU DARE EDIT THAT POST NOW. If what I'm presuming about Elder's thoughts are correct, then...this shall be a lovely chapter for Aylen what more with the second charrie making his official entrance soon. Ooh, this is about to get interesting! 

 

Also, Shadow, don't mind if that shady figure of mine just watches Briarwolf's actions from the shadows. He won't bother her, just observing :P))

 

"I'm surprised we hide so well in the sparse vegetation," the husky voice remarked, once again perched on the low branch of beech tree. "Or maybe she's just too focused on whatever she's thinking. Or..."

 

The hisses from before came again, this time with both heads rolling their eyes as they settled back down in the shade of the tree. The brewing storm shook the branches above them. The human figure didn't pay much mind to the branches that began to bounce beneath him; he knew they would hold. Strange to find such a speciment of beech here on Berk, let alone this high up in the mountains, where stiff breezes would tug incessantly on the plants and tree, and possibly dislodge them.

 

But as he glimpsed sturdy-looking tendrils poking out from the crevices, he knew it wouldn't. This tree would stay until the day it wilted ((wrong word, I know ^^;)). He shall protect this tree until then.

 

"Hmm...Something must be so important up there for her to brave the plucky winds this morning. Let's just watch her," he mused, watching as the distant figure picked up the pace in scaling the wall. The winds were definitely getting stronger, the looking grey clouds devouring more of the skies above. "Thor doesn't seem happy about something.. Wonder if it's Loki or Odin this time."

 

-----Meanwhile, in the School...-----

 

A stiff breeze struck the classroom, sending some of Aylen's papers flying from her desk. With a half-constrained yelp, she whipped around and snatched whatever she could from the air, watching with slight despair as a few decided to slap some of the students right in the faces.

 

"Southstorm, I told you to behave if you want to stay near here!" she whispered harshly to said Nadder, who looked at her in shock. "You mean...it wasn't you?"

 

Murmurs and shouts of surprise had already rang from the students, including Magnus and the teen who had thought he was late for class. Poking her head out of the doorway, Aylen narrowed her eyes at the sky. She hummed to herself, watching a distant grey cloud beginning to inch towards the school.

 

"Seems like Thor's moody yet again, huh? My guess would be Loki," she chuckled mirthlessly, approaching students to pick up the papers. "Shall we review the points covered so far? And after that a short quiz - highest score gets an Ice-Ring salmon, freshly caught."

Yeah, you should have indicated that a bit more clearly...

((By, oh, I don't know... Specifying who was stealing glances after Aylen winked at Magnus instead of leaving it up to the imagination, maybe? We don't need any love triangles here! XP Magnus is definitely NOT after romance at the moment, hence his mildly panicky mental reaction to Aylen's apparent flirtatiousness, but play it however you want. Let's just say he'd be relieved if she asked Elder to stay after class instead of him...))

*grabs you by the shoulders*

((But Josh! It's a brilliant idea! *shakes you pretty violently, more from excitement* The chapter's just beginning but already has it gotten so interesting, especially with Metal's forcefield of a reputation, and now THIS. I COULD GIVE YOU MORE ICE-CAUGHT SALMON JUST BECAUSE OF THIS BRILLIANCE.

 

But, a quick question. Where's Hammerstein? I must have missed a detail somewhere ._. I think class will end...say, when someone posts that the storm had arrived. Ha. Haha. Ha. 

 

...Is that my frying pan? *gasp* HOW COULD YOU?! QAQ))

No, I borrowed Mace's... Cool it! XD

((No, you didn't miss anything - I just haven't brought Mace in yet. Not sure if I want him with Mag for simplicity's sake, or meeting one of the new students so I have to/get to mentally juggle two different plot lines. I'm barely keeping up as is... O_O

 

*recovers from shaking* Ok, so I'm inadvertently brilliant. I guess I'll leave it and turn all you writers loose on this crazy plot setup. This is SO weird... Just like IRL, I have exactly no idea whatsoever where this will wind up. Mag thinks Aylen is flirting with him, which scares him a little, but she's actually flirting with Elder, but she'd probably be more likely to fall for Magnus, which he doesn't want, but Elder seems to be feeling a bit awkward and twitterpated, but she's not really going to go for him... Ouch. Where'd I put my Advil? This is giving me a headache already... >.<))

Oh,all right. One thing,though..

((The wink wasn't supposed to be flirtacious; it's supposed to be a "Don't worry, class won't be too bad or boring" wink. BUT HECK WITH THAT. ONWARDS WITH THE DEVIOUS PLOT YOU'VE PUT UP. HAHAHAHA!

 

*stops suddenly* What's that sound? *listens, melts* Omg, Vuelie just sounds so magical...I can imagine the title screen coming into view while the song plays...*giggles*))

((Vuelie is so amazing. One of the youtube commenters put it perfectly. When you see the intro and hear Vuelie start playing, you know immediately it's gonna be a good movie~))

GAAAAAH!!! I'm misreading EVERYTHING today!

 

((Why me?! I'm going to sleep and getting my head screwed on straight before I write anything else in this madhouse we're calling a RP. All this is SO not my fault... Y'all are crazy, and I'm going to bed! *stomps off*))
