In a mysterious world full of both commoners and kings, where castles ridge horizons and banners fly high in the breezes, and mountains tower over crystal-clear lakes.

Nestled within the heart of this rich and flourishing land is a school for uniquely gifted people.

People gifted with the power to Shift.

 

You are one of the eight common villagers who recieves a mysterious invitation to a prestigious school. Should you choose to accept, you uncover that an ancient power is hidden inside you, a power that all fear and all respect, an ability that could save the known world. 

You have the ability to shapeshift.

There is only one safe haven for people like you in your world, and that is the School of Shifting (we call it the SoS for short). Here you will learn how to master your powers and control your ancient and mystical gift. Not only will you learn the art of Shifting, but you will also be trained in swordplay, the art of strategy, among many other things. 

You, as a Shifter, are the designated protector of your world. And this is not a job for the faint of heart.

A darkness is coming. The Dark Knights of a fell king march over the face of your peaceful home,  and you and seven other Shifters will soon have to leave your school and adventure into the wide, unknown areas to defeat this king and save the world.

After all, it's your job. 

Not everyone wants to be a hero, but now you have your chance...

 

This is just a RP I thought of randomly while in the shower. Let's see how far it gets!

 

Rules:

1. No Godmodding/Powerplaying/OP chars

2. No Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters. I'm sorry, it's just no fun for any of us.

3. You can only shapeshift into one animal of your choice.

4. You have 24 hours to fill out your form. After this time is up, you will be removed from the RP.

5. Being active is suggested but not required.

6. No profanity, swearing, or harrasment of any type. Killing other characters is not permitted.

7. You may have up to two characters, but should you choose to have multiple characters, they must be of opposite genders.

8. Put "Han shot first" as your subject title if you've read the rules.

9. Please keep all activities PG or PG-13.

10. Remember to have fun!

 

-DNR YET, SPOTS AND OTHER DETAILS WILL BE POSTED BELOW-

here is my thing lol

 

-Male Form-

 

Name: Ben Calder

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Appearance:

imageedit_4_5266444858.png

(Wears a black jacket with a white undershirt, pants, and black leather combat boots)

Personality: It wasn't a surprise when people found out Ben could Shift into a cat. He's kind of nervous all the time, likes being up late, and has striking green eyes that don't even change a shade in his cat form. Many pass Ben off to be a coward, but they never see the courage he hides underneath. Ben prefers to be alone, but doesn't object to the company of others, especially if it's in his best interests. He's a wonderfuls strategist but doesn't really prefer to fight, something his teachers are trying to figure out how to work around. Ben is unlikely to ever be someone saving the world, but he soon proves himself and everyone else wrong...

Animal Appearance:

Weapon of Choice: 

A long black bow. He's actually quite good at long-range fighting, but is hopeless at anything close range.

Image result for fantasy cool black bow

Extra: Likes stargazing.

 
-Female Form-
 

Name: Ciera Skyborn

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Appearance:

imageedit_2_7748492989.png

(Wears a white jacket, warm blue undershirt, pants and tall combat boots fringed with fur)

Personality: Ciera is spunky, outgoing, and cheerful. Suited to cold weather and most comfortable when in a large group, Ciera's Shifter form is a snowy owl. She's quite daring and reckless, but tends to plunge head-first into things without first assessing the situation. She's usually very optimistic and uplifting, and is even considered by some to be at the very point of naive. However, in the hero-saving business, Ciera is more likely than not to be someone up for the job. She is very protective by nature, and therefore will go to great heights to save her world at any cost.

Animal Appearance:

Weapon of Choice:

Image result for ice-forged fantasy broadsword

This sword is made out of ice that somehow never melts. It glows when engaged in battle as if there is something flourescent blue within.

Extra: Because Ciera was raised and still currently lives in a snowy mountain village, she has become very cold-tolerant and enjoys cold weather, much like the snowy owl she is able to Shift into.

So you want to know more about your new school? Well, you've come to the right place!

At the SoS, we'll be teaching you basic world-saving skills. That's right, congratulations- you're going to save the world. It's not as chocked up as it's been made out to be, though. You're in for a lot of hard, grueling work, and chances are it won't be fun. Anyways, they're all telling me I'm being a naysayer, so lets get on with it.

-Runa, the History Teacher

 

Classes:

-Shifting-

Shifting is the primary class, and it is where you learn to master your animal shapeshifting. It usually ends in a whole bunch of young students being transformed into animals and running around like...well, wild creatures. It takes a very patient teacher to teach this class.

-History-

Here, you'll learn the history of Shifting. And yes, it's just as boring as real history class.

-Swordplay-

By far the most interesting class! This is where you'll learn fencing, broadsword fighting, archery skills, and everything a proper Shifter needs to know about saving the world.

 

Teachers

Halvin Rann is the Shifting teacher. Halvin can transform into a massive bull moose, and he's generally awed and feared by teachers and students alike. His dark brown eyes and large beard take on a general appearance of a very serious figure, but underneath he's actually very lighthearted.

Runa Asher is the History teacher. She can transform into a shrew, which at first doesn't seem very impressive, but you'll soon learn that the "shrew"d teacher can be very effcient with her Shifting when she wants to be. Mostly she just mutters, pushes her spectacles higher up on her nose, and screeches at students when they wont be quiet.

Sir Franklen Dinaus is the teacher of swordplay. A Shifter who can turn into a Gryphon, Sir Franklen is a boisterous, cheerful figure who loves swinging sharp weapons. He's often considered more fun than Runa, and they'll often argue about who is better.

 

Note: I'll be controlling the teachers, mostly. Don't worry, they will not be a big part of the RP.

 

The Dorms of the school are split into two different places, each on opposite ends of the SoS. Girls bunk with girls, and guys bunk with guys. Should intrusion on other dorms occur, you will usually be chased out by a large angry moose or sometimes a black bear. (We're not sure who the bear is.)

The Mess Hall is, well, where messes are made. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served here. Shifting into animals is strictly prohibited during meals, but "accidents" are known to occur. Just avoid any hungry predators.

The Classrooms, yes, all three of them, are found side-by-side just left of the Mess Hall. They all tend to look the same...mostly like actual classrooms.

The Library, is where all the bookworms go to hang out. Unsurprisingly, it's a great place to plot pranks.

The Training Fields is where all the zealous heroes-in-training go to spar and jeer at each other. Madness often ensues, and usually teachers have to arrive on scene to break up fistfights. It is an open, grassy plain, and weapons of all sorts are allowed here.

My hands have touched the highest clouds. My feet have touched the depths of the ocean. Soaring through the sky, swimming through the sea, dancing through life. But what is it for? 

People wander this earth wanting to be like other people. They sing the same song. 

But my soul sings a song. A different song. I dance to the beat of this song, for this song is what he has given me. This song is a part of me. It follows me as I dance, through rain, through snow, through the hilltop. It cradles me in its warm embrace. This song is my life. And I will sing with, even when the song turns sad... For this song, is who I am.

Star and all her dragons by FireNightStar^^
 
Name: Star The Navigator
 
Age: 18
 
Gender: Female
 
Appearance: Star has incredibly long Chestnut brown hair that when in a braid reaches down to her waist. Her skin is a light Carmel color and sure has a few freckles on the bridge if her nose. She has a slight scar across her left eye, but thankfully it does not affect her vision. She has amethyst purple eyes.

Designed by Arrowalker, Vanilia Viking and I. Drawn by Arrow
 
Winter
 
Her shirt is a long sleeve olive green shirt with gold borders. She wears a brown leather chest piece and coyote fur wrapping around her waist. Her boots, wristbands and cape are lined with coyote fur also. Her pants are brown with deep brown buckles and she keeps her messenger style bag with her at all times. 
 
Summer
 
When summer comes she changes to a green three quarter length sleeve shirt with gold borders. Her wristbands are no longer lined with fur, and so are her boots. She removes the fur from her waist and only wears her cloak on the colder days or when flying. 
 
Background: Star was 9 years old when she joined the school of dragons. 
 
Upon joining she made many friends. She Trained many dragons and because of her, Snow Wraiths were welcomed​into the school. But still, something was calling her. 
 
She went on many journeys​ to find what was calling her, but she never found it. She did find, however​, many different islands. Including, an island with a mountain in the middle. The mountain is hollow and covered in ice. Star decided it was the perfect place for all of her dragon companions.
 
 During the summer months Star stays on the islands to keep her ice dragons healthy. 
 
Personality: Star believes in following her heart more than anything. She sees the world at a different angle and because of that has traveled FAR beyond where any Viking has gone before. 
 
Star has not limited herself to Dragons. She is the proud trainer of a pack of wolves, a bear, a pod of Orcas, several birds and even a family of rabbits​!
 
As you might have guessed, star does things very differently.
 
Weapon: 
Drawn by Mechfighter^^
 
Other: Star has a necklace with the chiefs symbol ingraved on it.

I found something Piggyxl is bad at! Doing bad art! Can you believe I got this lil' gem from a thread called "Draw A Dragon Above You Poorly"!?!?!
By Piggyxl^^
 
Personalize: Skyfire does not tolerate sarcasm in the wrong moment. Nor does she allow games when they are on a mission. Wish she is given a task she will get it done THEN play. Unless of course someone throws something. Yay if her only weakness: Fetch. She cannot resist retrieving things. Which she gets made fun of by Star's other dragons for.
 
Favorite activity: Fetch
 
Biggest fear: Eels
 
Origin: Star received Skyfire as an egg when she first joined the school of dragons.

Polaris was enjoying a fun game of fetch in the snow!
 
A scene from the story of how Star and Polaris met by Aelyras^^
 
Personality: Polaris is playful as can be. Once you get to know him or he sees that Star trusts you, he is caring as can be. But before you​ gain his trust, he might come off as cold (Pun Intended) He is playfully competitive and will not refuse a competition. 
 
Favorite activity: Snowball Fight
 
Biggest fear: Cabbage
 
Origin: During one of Berk's coldest Winters​ travel to the wilderness was banned due to a report of seeing Snow Wraiths. Star followed her heart and trained one anyway and aided Hiccup in defending the School from dragon hunters. Since then Snow Wraiths have been welcomed into the school.

Journey by Violetta Rosemary^^
 
By NeverendingSilverstorm^^
 
Personality: Journey loves to annoy people more than anything. She will play jokes (that aren't​ really funny) as is sarcastic. 
 
She is incredibly competitive and (just because is bugs Skyfire) will challenge Polaris to races all the time. However, she will do most anything to save Star.
 
Favorite activity: Racing 
 
Biggest fear: Losing everyone she cares about​.
 
Origin: Star found Journey on one of her trips. This time she flew farther than ever before. After weeks of travel she found a large section of land. It was too big to be a island. Upon exploration she made a surprising discovery, and met Journey. 
 
 
                          The Leaders Of Vivvore...
 
 
 
By Boombox74^^
 
 
Name: Sonda
 
 
Species: Titan Sand Wraith
 
 
Gender: Male
 
 
Appearance: 
Base by MegaboltPheonix, Filled by BrynneBjorrnson^^
 
Personality: Sonda is short tempered and hot headed. He is stubborn and has a wry sense of humor. 
 
His firmness is good for some aspects of leading, but he can be to harsh, so he needs some others to help balance his personality.
 
 
Favorite activity: Sleeping
 
 
Biggest fear: Hurting Star and letting her down. 
 
 
Origin: Star met Sonda when he stole Moana the Tide Glider's eggs. Star recused the eggs and in the process befriended the Tide Glider. 
 
After a long adventure trying to find the answer to why Sonda was stealing her eggs, Star found out that his family died when he was young, and so he was lonely and jealous of Moana. Star invited him to Vivvore, where he grew to in unofficial leadership position. Star saw this and officially​ made him the leader.
 
 
 
Name: Moana 
 
 
Species: Tide Glider
 
 
Gender: Female
 
 
Appearance: 
Base by MegaboltPheonix, Filled by BrynneBjorrnson^^
 
 
Personality: Moana is compassionate and forgiving. Perfect to contrast Sonda's harshness, although occasionally they will clash. 
 
 
Favorite activity: Searching the depths of the ocean for treasures. 
 
 
Biggest fear: The dark
 
 
Origin: Star met Moana when Sonda stole her eggs. Star rescued the eggs and in the process earned her trust. 
 
 
 
Name: Pompeii
 
 
Species: Eruptadon
 
 
Gender: Female
 
 
Appearance:
Base by MegaboltPheonix, Filled by BrynneBjorrnson^^
 
 
Personality: Pompeii is a gentle giant but can also be firm. She does not find Sonda's sense of humor funny and will call him out on it. 
 
 
Favorite activity: Watching the hatchlings play
 
 
Biggest fear: Swimming
 
 
Origin: Star found Pompeii when she needed to fly into the depths of a volcano. None of her dragons could take that kind of heat, so Pompeii helped out.

And while we're on the subject... here's how they met!
 

One blue and gold wyvern, a young girl with blazing red hair, and another older girl with a mess of black on her head. Nearby some sheep watched in half-hearted interest and in the distant background several tall wooden buildings were swarmed with a rainbow of different dragons of all ages and breeds. The School of Dragons.

“Now remember, let the dragon fly herself”

“Got it”

“And don’t yank back on the horns too hard”

“Knew that”

“And don’t put your foot there”

“What?”

Aunrey looked at where Jurada, her instructor, was pointing. Her heel was wedged in the Monstrous Nightmares armpit, which wouldn’t have been a problem except for the fact that she would be trying to get airborne in the next minute. “Oh, right” Aunrey apologized.

Jurada smiled confidently at her. The girl looked about 19, maybe 20, and had a maniacs’ glint behind her joyful eyes. Her thick black hair enhanced that look, and it didn’t help that her outfit was a weird combination of red-stained leather and fabrics matched with light armouring made from a very, very dark metal of some sort. “Alright, then- Ace, you said your name was?”

“Yep”

“Let’s see if you can get along with Nyemeri. Onwards!”

Nyemeri, the dragon, launched into the sky with a jolt. Aunrey was almost thrown off (again) but managed to grasp her lower horns.

This turned out to be a terrible idea because instead of throwing the dragons whole head back, it just pulled her jaws open to make a gout of sticky flames shoot out in surprise. Nyemeri tucked in her wings, rolled to one side, and made a nose dive for the ocean. Neither Aunrey or Jurada had time to protest to those manoeuvres and all three were now floating in the waves.

“Nyemeri, what in the name of Odin’s eyepatch was that!” Jurada cursed loudly.

The dragon started paddling back to shore, clearly done with todays lessons. Muttering a few more severe informalities under her breath, Jurada grabbed a shell-shocked Aunrey and followed Nyemeri.

“I think we’re done with flying practice for today” Jurada puffed. “You should get up to the Hatchery before the rare ones go” she suggested.

Aunrey clutched her arm. It stung badly, as did a lot of the rest of her body, but there were no marks or burns. “I guess” she agreed.

 

No more than an hour later, she had managed to reach the magmatic hearth of the Hatchery(and the heat dried her off, which was a plus). Left and right, other students made b-lines for different nests and others made round trips a few times before settling on their first dragon.

Not Aunrey, though. She just stood there.

“Just give it a moment” a boy said to her at some point. “You’ll feel what’s right for you”

And she gave it plenty of moments. Enough moments for even the Whispering Death’s nest to clear out. The mother happily lay curled around the empty ditch, just like the rest of them.

Maybe come back tomorrow?’ Aunrey thought to herself, but even she was having a hard time keeping her spirits up. For now, she would just have to find something else to do. Exploring the islands would have to do for a distraction for now.

It was a weird sensation. Aunrey normally was in a constant state of optimism, but the type of sadness or disappointment in her right now was almost nothingness. A sort of emptiness in her chest, as if the ‘happy-go-lucky’ carelessness was now just ‘go’. Go somewhere and do nothing.

The Lookout was pretty boring. A plot of land was for sale but she had no coin. Groups of students took turns gazing through a telescope fixed to an outcropping but there wasn’t much on the horizon to get a better look at.

The Training Grounds had some more promise- the racing tower stood proudly on its own rocky cape, its height outmatched only by the Flight Club platform. Arena’s built into caves either side of the entrance added another layer to the cove but Fireball was strictly experienced trainers only and ‘Bullseye Lagoon’ had a faded ‘Closed’ sign nailed to its door. Aunrey couldn’t wait until she could explore the place properly with her own dragon- something that she was slowly fearing would never happen.

This only left the Wilderness to wander through, the only forested part of the island. It was where most of the Hatcheries eggs came from, according to Jurada, so it wasn’t unheard of for a student to go in there with just the one scaled companion and leave with two.

It was reassuringly quiet here. No other students. Any dragons that saw her turned tail and left silently. It was a good place to reset, and by now the sun was touching the horizon, adding to the serene environment.

In the distant forest, a pillar of black smoke billowed from the trees. Some boars burst out of the undergrowth, squealing and paying no mind to her in their blind fear. These were sure sounds of an injured or angry dragon- just the kind of thing she was looking for.

Racing towards the smoke, she grinned to herself as she pondered what could be the owner of the smoke. Smokebreath? Stormcutter? Hotburple? At this point any kind of dragon would be fine for her. She reached the place that the smoke was coming from, and found a patch of forest stripped bare by flames and gales. The ground was still warm- coals embedded in the tree trunks still glowed rather brightly. The tops of the trees melted into the dusk sky.

Then a beam of sunlight pulled itself from the rest.

She watched in awe as a dragon with fiery wings materialize out of the dusk sky, landing heavily on the other side of the field to her. They locked eyes, and Aunrey felt the connection. A Typhoomerang with eyes of light bronze, a face like white ash and a body made of fire, stood regal and proud. He was a powerful beast, but not without intelligence or kindness. Pale striping in his scarlet belly reminded her of the onyx geodes brought back from trading vessels, smoothed and buffed into shining stones as bright as his scales.

The dragon took a step towards her, growling. She wasn’t scared, however. And he didn’t seem defensive, either, growling more out of a test than to frighten her. He stopped rumbling and his pupils widened, taking another step forward. Their noses were almost touching. “Hi there” Aunrey whispered.

He sniffed her head, and made a strange gurgling noise. “Would you want to come with me?” she asked, hopeful.

It was a long shot, but there was no way she would leave this majestic dragon behind without even trying.

He slow-blinked, considering the offer. After a moment, he nuzzled her forehead, gurgling again. “You want a name?” she asked her new dragon, who was very quickly warming up to her. “What about Onyx?” she suggested, remembering the small stones again.

Onyx didn’t exactly object to his name, if anything humming even louder. She laughed, stroking his nose and horns, finally with her dragon.

Sniper
 
 
 
Species: Skyworm
 
Species first discovered by: Chameisida
 
Gender: Male
 
Background:  
  I met Sniper on an island far south of Berk.

My dragon, Polaris, spotted him first, he was high above the island, as if scouting out his next move.


As we   approached the dragon he attacked. He hit Polaris, barely, but it was still clear that Polaris was in excruciating pain.

We crashed into the island below, Sniper was quick to follow.

I tried to tend to my dragon, but Sniper came bursting through the trees, wanting to finish what he'd started.
I dodged a few attacks but he had me cornered.
"Stop!" I yelled as he readied the final blow.
This interested him. A human, who can speak with dragons?
"How can you do that?" He asked in a gruff voice.
"I learned your language, I live alone in an island will with dragons for half of the year." I answered.
"Show me the island." He demanded.

"I can't, my dragon is injured."

"Then care for him, then you will show me the island."
I tended to Polaris most of the night, amidst talking to Sniper.
The next morning woke up to see Sniper guarding us. He hadn't killed us!
Polaris was well enough to fly now and we began the flight back to Vivvore.
Once there Sniper was welcomed with open wings. It was there he realized that I had befriended all these dragons and I keep them safe.
I named him Sniper and offered him a place at Vivvore. He agreed.

He remains aggressive, but a bit less. Now he happily lives as the head of defense at Vivvore.

Yay! You made it to the end! Now you get the rest of the quote!

Unfortunately I'll have to say no to Night Furies or any HTTYD franchise dragons, since this is a medieval-themed RP, but you could be a Chinese Dragon or Western Dragon if you wanted. ;D

Save spot for some mythical creature plssss. I feel like everyone will want a mythical creature. I think you should put a limit on mythiucal creature spots. I know im being a hypocrite but still. And can there be like a limit on how many shifters per-animal. That way we dont have like 14 dragons.

Characters:

 

 

 

 

Lynx

 Art done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is rather bold and loud She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is natrually good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet, but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability of being able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion twords humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

 

 

 

Wolf

 Art done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair viking and  she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

........Lyra

 Art done by xXSadieKaneXx

Lyra is very concealed and secretive. She rarely shows emotion and looks down on those who do. She is insanely obervative and could possibly rub off as edgy. Lyra can be rudely scarcastic, and may accidently hurt you. Don't expect remorse.  Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. She WILL kill. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. she values her self preservation. She doesn't talk much either. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face and long hair

-Form-

Name:

Skyra Vermillion

Age:

14

Gender:

Female

Appearance:

5'9", with a lanky build and tank skin. Her silver hair(with vermillion-color highlights, mind you) and sky blue eyes are some of her features. That, and combine it with her sharp fetures: black gloves, navy blue contacts, vermillion vestcoat(there is a white shirt underneath), black shorts, and black boots that go up to the waist.

Personality:

Being able to turn into a Chupacabra suprised a lot of people, even her own family. A quiet and reserved girl, Skyra was diagnosed with a chronic case of Insomnia at the age of 9 that was gonna persist into adulthood. Due to her being royalty, her family hid her away from sociaty, letting Skyra slip further into her reserved state, and the poor girl would stay up all night crying sometimes because of it.

When she finnaly was let out into the real world again, Skyra, at the age of 11, took up the profesion of Fencing. In just a few months(with all-night diligant practice by her teacher, who was kind enough, along with a few elite students, to pratice with her), she had risen to the top of her class, and was one of the few in the country to be at the top ten. Her Fencing profession got her to be more open with people, leading to her personality before she was diagnosed: A splunky girl who's firey pastion got her into trouble, and her wits on high alert.

When she was sent the letter to the School of Shifting, a whole new experince dawned on her.

Animal Appearance:

Chupacabra

Weapon of Choice:

A daggur and a twin-bladded staff

Extra:

Finished the form!

Personality: A hot-tempered gal, Skylar's in the prospective of, "act now, think later". Though she can be fired up, her shyness and temper can get in the way sometimes.

​Clan: None

~Her Dragons~

​'Sleeping after a long flight'

​Name: Undyne

Species: Thunderdrum

​Favorite Place: Dragon's Edge

​How we Met: I sought refuge in a cave from a storm, which had come up rather suddenly, and stumbled upon a Thunderdrum nest.  While one might tremble in fear, none of the Thunderdrums that had revealed themselves ever treated me like an enemy.  Every dragon’s natural instinct is to protect.  Since I did nothing to harm the Thunderdrums, the Thunderdrums did the same in return. After making a fire to warm up and dry off, I looked around the cave.  I came across some Thunderdrum eggs.  I knew enough about dragon eggs that they needed to be in water to hatch safely or else they would explode, so I had grabbed one egg that had a crack on it. I knew that the mothers would be protective, but they too saw the egg cracking and were trying to get it to water.  I had almost gotten the egg in a small pool when the egg hatched.  The explosion of the egg sent me back twenty feet from where I had been standing.  While studying Thunderdrums, any egg that is hatched outside a pool of water will explode at the same magnitude and sound of a young hatchling’s first ever thunder blast. Understandably, I was dazed and somewhat dizzy after getting up.  But then, when I got up, I turned around to see the same viking crew that I was trying to hide from had found me.  I had no weapons to defend myself as one of the men had grabbed me.  Remembering I was still disoriented from the Thunderdrum egg hatching, there was little I could do to escape the crew members now… except for one thing. Little did the crew realize I had been in a Thunderdrum nest the whole time. They should have wished they had never found me as the Thunderdrums protected me.  The older Thunderdrums chased off the other vikings, but a new found friend rescued me.  The same hatchling that had hatched from the egg I was holding just moments before came to my rescue now.  With wreck-less abandonment, the hatchling started firing blast everywhere. Undoubtedly, the sonic blasts that a Thunderdrum hatchling is capable, rang in my ears.  It was painful enough in the moment, that I just collapsed into a ball and covered my head.With fear of being captured by the men who hunted me down, the thought of the dragons had turned on me, and when the Thunderdrums had stopped firing, I stayed curled up. I felt something nudging my head. I opened her eyes and looked up… it was the Thunderdrum hatchling. From then on, we became inseperitable, even after Undyne lost vision in her left eye, but her vision's still keen as an eagle's.

'Showing off at the Ship Graveyard'

​Name: Trill

Species: Deathsong

​Favorite Place: Ship Graveyard

​How we Met: After finding a baby Deathsong in the amber nest on Berk, me and Hiccup wanted to return the baby so we don't have trouble with the parents returning. As we got to Melody Island, the mother and father Deathsongs refused to acnolage th baby as their own. So, Hiccup told me I could keep the baby Deathsong, as long as I trained it so it would not cause trouble. It was a long road, trying to train the Deathsong, which it had the natrual instinct to eat other people's dragon's, so I had to train it outside the School of Dragons, which I recently enrolled into. Once I got him trained, we contuned our studies at the SoD, but with a Broad-Wing Deathsong at my side.

How we Met: TBD

 

~Fan-Dragons Skylar Owns~

Name: Starslip

Species: Muddicry (Made by chameishida)

How We Met:

Me and Splinters were serching the islands around Berk because of the recient rucus that somthing-or someone-was causing. Topaz and Undyne were acompning me for protection, and to scout the area. After about an hour of serching, we came across a river. I tell you, it was muddy beyond ​belief. Suddenly, Topaz started growling, and the others followed suit. It was close to sundown, and volentearing to take shifts through the night, we called it, and I, looking up at the stars, I drifted off into sleep...

---

When I woke, somthing was close to my face, and as I turned to look at was it was, I almost jumpted 10 feet into the sky. ​'A dragon...but why? Why was it sleeping next to me...?' As soon as I woke, the dragon woke too. It started to try to weive around my legs, what seemed to be purring all the while. So, hoping that this thing could understand me, I spoke to it, "Hey, bud, can you please ​get off me?"

The thing just looked up at me, tilting it's head and making a face like,​ what did you say?

​'Great, this thing can even speak Dragonese! Sigh...gotta do chirades again...'

​Motioning for it to seperate from my legs, it finnaly got the jist of the situation. It seperated from my legs, frilling it's spine all the while. Fealing sorry for it, I decided to bring it with me. After all, was this a new species? Believe so. After waking my dragons, who groweled at the newcomer(except Undyne. She probibly though, ​'Mud + Dragon = Tidal Class dragon'​), we took the Muddicry with us, and reported the situation to Hiccup, including the Muddicry. He allowed the dragon with us, because we had a Tidal Class dragon with us. I named it Starslip, after it's coloring, and trained the Muddicry.

---

Name: Kaito

Species: Solarflare Skrill(made by Wutend Bonfire)

How We Met:

Me(Skylar) and three of my dragons, Blac Star the Screaming Death, LuCiel the Sliquifier, and my new companion, Starslip the Muddicry, were on a fishing trip sent from the School. We had to bring back a boatload of fish in a few days for all the new baby dragons that were hatching, which is a lot.

I was riding on LuCiel, with Blac Star and Starslip following behind, through the Ship Graveyard, when LuCiel suddenly roared. Silence followed, and Starslip suddenly dove, spitting hot mud on a oval-ish black shape. It was the dead of night, and dragons don't react this was for nothing, so I quickly landed LuCiel on a nearby seastack and approached the shape.

"Shhh, I won't hurt you, stay calm, ok?" I said, and while I got a closer look at it, I realized that he was a young male, of an unidentified species of dragon. The dragon was shaking his head, trying to clear the mud off, and looking promptly annoyed because it got dirty. Once he noticed me, I stopped walking to him, and got on one knee, showing that I ment no harm. The male was watching me as I slowly cupped both of my hands and filled them with water from the ocean, and I ever so slowly extended the water to the dragon, who looked at me with seemed to be a slight grin and splashed some of the water on me with his snout, to which I yelp with surprise.

 

After he splashed me, the dragon took off in the direction of the ships, and instinctively I tried to grab his tail, to which he turns around and tries to snap at me. We both are face-to-face, and looking a second more, we both start laughing. I knew that you don't pick the dragon, the dragon picks you, and that is what happened here. "Kaito is your name while i'm still living, ok?" I said to the new dragon in dragoneese, and he warbled a small yes. So, taking him back with me, we developed a strong bond(through shiny things and a lot of brushing).

THERE

 

None of this art is mine, I'd probably have to draw her out sooner or later though. FOr now.. i have a reference.

Name: Astra

Age: 15

Gender: Female

Appearance:

Personality:

Astra is a woman full of both enegery and mischeif. Astra is slim and small, able to worm her way out of almost any grip. She is an esacpe artist and very clever. Her personality reflects her shift. Astra is can keep her cool most of the time, especially around authorities. But when there are not higher-ups around she can become very scarcatsic and rude. When she isnt sleeping or planning her next prank she is running around doing athletic things. Astra is very comfortable during storms, she loves the smell of the rain on the air and does not get chilled form the dampness.

 

Animal Appearance:

Animal Ability: Raijus have control over lightning and can fly around in the form of a ball of lightning. It's cry sounds like thunder. It's body can take the shape as either a  cat, wolf, or weasel. (IT is dirved from Japaneese culture.)

 

Weapon of Choice: Bow and arrow (as the one shown in the picture)

 

Extra: 

Astra is the eldest of 2 siblings. Herself and her 10 year old sister;  Lily. Her family isn't ranked very high in the hierarchy. They are not merchants, nor are they blacksmiths. Astra's father is a farmer. Her mother died during the conception of her sister who was born with an illness. Her father was ready to give  a up on Lily, but Astra cares  I deeply about her. Her father's farm is  small so he works as a part-time falconeer. Astra has grown up around birds and thus knows how to handle them. However, Astra always felt a pull to the Forest. Only the nobles and royalty were allowed to hunt there but duringe harvest when no food was present in their feif, Astra was faced with a hard descision. Her family could never better themselves, not without crops. They would starve, but prior to that happening, they would loose their home due to their inability to pay their taxes. Lily had fallen terribly ill that week, she needed expensive medication in order to  survive. So Astra set off with a stolen bow and ventured into the woods. Quickly, the forest became their life scorce. Astra would bring home fine meats then would sell them on the market. Her family was able to rent a larger more furtile fief and Astra was able to buy her bow. She is a self taught huntress, still everyday she risks her neck by sneaking into the forest to hunt. She could technically get executed on a daily bases for trespassing and petty theift. She had gotten handy with the bow, able to shoot her prey right in the eye. She is arguably the best marksmen in her village. Some of the village authorities know where Astra gets her kills, but they too but her meat. Afterall, it is usually fine in quality. So they choose to turn a blind eye to her antics.

Topaz Gypsy

 

  Digital art of Paz by Arrowalker the Amazing!           Drawing of Topaz Gypsy by Ally Kay the Skilled!

 

Age: 15

Gender: Female

Occupation: Gothi's apprentice

                                                                                 

Backstory:

          When Paz was 3, she and her parents were sailing along with the rest of their tribe to find a new island. When a huge storm capsized the boat in the middle of the night, it killed the majority of the tribe, including her father. The remaining few washed up on the shores of Berk. When they realized they had been blown drastically off course, Stoic offered to let them stay, under the condition that they became members of the tribe of Berk. Shortly afterwards, however, Paz's mother had contracted an unknown illness (pneumonia) and died. Gothi, who had grown fond of the child in that short time, decieded to raise her as an apprentice.

 

Due to her postion with Gothi, she does have an aqquaintence with Hiccup and the other dragon riders, but that's about it. When she's not studying at the School of Dragons during the school year, she's assisting Gothi at her house. She recieved a deep scar across her right eye when training her first dragon Minty. Fortunetly it doesn't affect her vision. It does, however, tend to flare up on occasions, which makes it burn and turn an irritated red.

 

​If you want to learn more about Paz, then click the title below for backstory fanfiction about her done by IrishMexicanViking the Stellar!

 

​The Topaz Chronicles

 

(Thank you so, so much for this, IMV, it means a lot!)

 

Likes: Animals, music, stargazing, watching the sunrise/ sunset, being helpful or witty (which doesn't happen often), practicing with her ax, hanging out with friends (also doesn't happen often)

Dislikes: Being belittled because of her occasional naiveness and/ or appearance (She looks 1-2 years younger than she actually is), the dark/ unknown, romance, pink, girly things in general, the taste of mint (suprisingly enough, she likes the smell though)

 

((Note: Besides her axe, Paz also carries a leather satchel, which has a small first aid kit, compass, a whittleing knife that she uses to carve patterns on her ax handle, a small spyglass and various other items))

 

((Funfact: Paz means peace in Spanish, which I did not know when first creating the character. Ironically enough, being peacefull is not one of her strongsuits))

 

 

 

Arion Strider

                  

Age: 25

Gender: Male

Occupation: Fisherman

Personality: Very quiet and reserved. He seems like a shady character, and is very experienced in hustling, but will generally mind his own buisness if you mind yours. Working in the fishing trade, Arion has a harpoon as tall as he is for his weapon of choice.

 

Backstory: Originating from the same tribe as Paz, they were part of two separate clans. The cheif came from Arion's clan, but Paz's wished they had a chief from their's. When they had set out to claim new lands for the tribe, Paz's tribe had declared mutiny, with her father heading the rebellion. If it wasn't for the storm, He probably would've succeded too. It's because of this that Arion holds a deep grudge against Paz that's not going away anytime soon.

Paz's Dragons

 

 

 

                                                                   Pencil sketch by Lulu6161 the Awesome!

Dragon's name: mint chip

Nickname: Minty

Gender: Female

Species: Deadly Nadder

Class: Tracker (Still don't get why they were moved out of the Sharp class)

Color: Mint Green (Hence the name) with beige details.

Personality: A loyal dragon with a generous helping of wit and sass. She doesn't really see anyone as in charge, so she can be somewhat unpredictable, doing what she wants or thinks is better. She will stick one of her spines in you if annoyed, which Paz figured out quickly. Despite her flaws, she will do anything to protect those who gain her trust. While not the most powerful Nadder due to her size, she is one of the fastest. Racing is one of her favorite hobbies.

 

Likes: Racing, dragon nip, mint, salmon, hunting.

Dislikes: Being cooped up, people who annoy her, being told what to do, swimming.

 

 

"Foster" Dragons:

((She promised Gothi she would rehome these ones. So far that has not happened))

 

 

Dragon's name: shadowofdeath

Nickname: Shadow

Gender: Male

Species: Whispering Death

Class: Boulder

Color: Pitch Black with a white underbelly.

Personality: Unlike the majority of his species, Shadow is very laid back and extremely lazy. One of the Death twins, he and his sister were rejected by their owner when they didn't live up to expectations. Paz is hoping to work on his work ethic before rehoming him.

 

 

Dragon's name: Milky Way

Nickname: Wé

Gender: Female

Species: Whispering Death

Class: Boulder

Color: Blue with a galaxy-like pattern on her underbelly that consists of pinks and purples.

Personality: The second of the Death twins, Wé is actually a bit hyperactive, making her have difficulty focusing on the task at hand. Takes interest in the most random things, like the rain, or a bug crawling up a tree, or the sunrise. Paz is hoping to get that under control before rehoming her, but she might not get the chance before her perfect rider comes along (winky wink).

 

 

Dragon's name: Starred and Spangled

Nickname: Spangled

Gender: Male

Species: Gronckle

Class: Boulder

Color: Blue with a red underbelly and white spots.

Personality: Stubborn, independant, gruff, toughy on the outside... in a word, PATRIOTIC!!! Wasn't as great of a beginner's dragon as the previous owners thought...

 

 

Annie made by ScarfyWings the Gifted!

Dragon's name: Oceanna

Nickname: Annie

Gender: Female

Species: Gronckle

Class: Boulder

Color: Deep blue with a ocean-like green underbelly.

Personality: Paz's "cuddle buddy", Annie is the most out going and enthusiastic of the bunch. Her love of water and attention has made her Paz's second favorite dragon (after Minty, of course). Unlike the other boulder class dragons on Paz's side of the stable, However, Annie's owner's parents just somewhere for her to stay until thier kid was ready for the responsiblilty of owning a dragon. There will come a day when her "cuddle buddy" will not be around all the time, and Paz is not looking forward to it.

 

 

 

Arion's Dragon

 

Name: Scarab

Age: 17

Personality: Very sly and cunning, if not kept in check tends to be very rowdy and gets into all sorts of trouble with other dragons and Vikings. While he can be a softy at times, he's currently feeling a little more then miffed about the lack of attention he's getting from his owner.

Likes: Causing mischeif, eating fish, tunnling through sand, picking fights with other dragons, belly rubs

Dislikes: being neglected, being tied down, when he gets punished for his bad behavior

RP's that I've taken part in (not all of them were finished)

...Scratch that none of them have been finished as of yet.

 

 

Let's go train a dragon and save the day! (HTTYD RP):

 

Power Play (Superhero RP)

 

The Rogues (Criminal HTTYD RP)

​(Psst this one's been my favorite so far so check it out!)

 

The Trial of Riders (HTTYD/Hunger Games type RP)

 

One HECK of a CROSSOVER! (Crossover RP)

 

Painting a Storm (Warrior Cat style RP (But with wolves!))

... Yeah, that one was a bit of a wild card for me. I've never even read the Warrior Cats series.

 

​The Escapees (Kind of a sequel to The Rouges)

 

(By the way, if you know of an rp that you think I'd be interested in based on the ones listed above, let me know)

 

I also have an MCU RP in the making (Planning is on hiatus until whenever I get the motivation to do something with it. If you'd be interested in participating when it's up and running or if you'd like to host it yourself, fell free to PM me!)

 

 

 

​And now the fun part...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Y'all get to learn

 

 

about me!!!!

 

 

 

(a little bit. Probably wouldn't be wise to give away my secret identity)

​(Not that I'm a celebrity or anything... Or am I?)

 

 

 

​(No... thankfully not... moving on)

 

 

​I'm probably not in any fandoms, per se, but I feel like I have a borderline unhealthy obbsesion for some of the subjects listed below:

 

​(P. S. These are not in any particuar order)

 

HTTYD (why else would I be on here?)

​Big Hero 6

​The Avengers (Actually, just the MCU in general)

Pirates of the Caribbean

The Chronicles of Narnia (sorta, haven't hung out in that fantasy in a while)

​The Fellowship of the Ring

TMNT (The 2012 reincarnation)

​Phineas and Ferb

​Brave

​Star Wars

​Back to the Future

Milo Murphey's Law (again, sorta. It only just came out)

(There are probably more. I'll update as I think of them)

 

 

​A couple of not-so-random facts about me

 

1. I'm a Christian.

​2. I'm a pianist.

3. I'm 100% American (Not that it technically means anything as far as ethnic heritage since the US is the mixing pot of cultures and whatnot. I think my great great grandparents were Polish, but besides that I have no idea what my ancestry looks like) Specifically, I'm from the southeastern portion.

4. I've traveled to 18 out of the 50 US states. Outside of my country, I have been to Italy, England, and Germany.

​5. I'm an equestrian.

6. I named my OC, Paz after two of my pets.

​7. I sing in the alto section of my choir (which means yes, I'm a girl. Is it just me, or are the majority of the people on this forum also girls?)

​8. I'm working on learning Spanish, so don't be suprised if I pop a couple of spanish words while talking on here. (I probably won't, but if I do, now you know why)

​9. I'm not an artist, but I do draw when I'm bored. If you care to see any examples, you can go to my Art Dump.

 

​I also now have an FAQ if you have additional questions!

 

Favorite Music Artists

NF (Which stands for Nate Feuerstein, not Night Fury), Toby Mac, Ryan Stevenson, Mattew Parker, Jaymie Grace, Tori Kelly, Unspoken, Lecrae... (I could go on for a while, so I'm just gonna stop there)

 

 

 

 

 

Fantasy Idea Corner:

 

(This is likely to be updated every time a new idea pops into my head)

 

(largely, if not entirely based on stuff I've read from other people, so not exactly original)

​Here's an idea for a fanfiction that I'll probably never write

​...As in, 86% certainty that I won't

 

 

Tony Stark A. K. A. "Iron Man" = Hiro Hamada A. K. A.... "?" (Not sure he has a superhero name)

Steve Rogers A. K. A. "Captain America" = Jack Overland Frost A. K. A. "Winter Soldier" (I know, name's taken, not caring over here)

Bruce Banner A. K. A. "The Hulk" = Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III A. K. A. "The Night Fury"

Thor= Merida (They're so cool they don't need an alter ego)

Natasha Romanoff A. K. A. "Black Widow"= Elsa A. K. A. "Frost Bite"

Clint Barton A. K. A. "Hawkeye"= Eugene Fitzherbert A. K. A. "Flynn Rider" ('Cause I don't see how Rapunzel would get caught up in this in the first place)

Nick Fury = Nick Fury ('Cause he's awesome. I'd put Frozone, but that's a little too much ice for my liking)

​Maria Hill = Heather the Unhinged

​Agent Coulsen = Agent Coulsen ('Cause who else is gonna do his job?)

 

​Loki= Merida's brothers (Because I'm evil)

 

​(If you've had any experience with marvel in general, you probably get the idea)

 

 

​This one I'm actually more likely to do at some point... After the HTTYD trilogy is over... So it's gonna be a while before it comes out.

 

The short summary is that when my OC, Paz, is grown up, she'll become an immortal glob trotter.

...I know, that's kinda lame...

 

​BUT IT'S HAPPENING SO BUCKLE YOUR SEATBELTS BECAUSE WE'RE GOING ON A WILD RIDE!!!*

 

 

​*(Actually if you'd just go about your life and forget this was here that'd be great)

 

​And now for random quotes!

 

​"Why are we stopped?​"

​"The light's red.​"

​"... THERE ARE NO RED LIGHTS IN A CAR CHASE!!!​"

Gogo and Wasabi in Big Hero 6

 

 

"Ooohhh..."

"Ooohhh yes."

"You, sir are playing a dangerous game. Keeping this much raw... vikingness contained. THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES!​"

"I'll take my chances. Sword. Sharpen. Now."

Hiccup and Gobber in How to Train Your Dragon.

 

 

*Cap's shield flies though the air doing awesomeness.*

"That thing doesn't obey the laws of phisics at all!"

Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War

 

​​"Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard, and he is my brother.​"

"He killed eighty people in two days."

"... He's adopted?​"

Thor and Black Widow in Avengers.

 

"Sometimes the only payoff for having any faith is when it's tested again and again everyday."

Immortals by Fall Out Boy.

 

"Great Scott!"

"Yeah, I know, it's heavy."

Marty McFly and Doc Brown ​in Back to the Future III

(When they switched catchphrases for a scene)

 

"You dare challenge Megamind?"

"This town isn't big enough for two super-villains!"

"Oh, you're a villain all right. Just not a super one."

"Yeah? What's the difference?"

"PRESENTATION!"

Megamind and Titan in Megamind (the movie)

ᎪᏩᎬ: 16

ᏩᎬNᎠᎬᎡ: Female

ᎪᏢᏢᎬᎪᎡᎪNᏟᎬ:

(( Dark brown hair. Has black pants.))

ᏢᎬᎡᏚᎾNᎪᏞᏆᎢY: Danielle is the shy, quiet type with a brilliant, bright mind. She is very introverted, so she won't speak much, especially to strangers. She has intelligence that few can match, she even considers herself a geek and is proud of it. Once you break her out of her shell, she's kind and caring, one of the nicest people you'll meet. She's not exactly very girly because she was forced to grow up with a family of boys. She has learned to hunt for her years of growing up out in the woods with them. Dani can be a little over-protective, mainly over her friends and belongings. She isn't one to fight, but if it's necessary, she will fight until her last breath.

ᎪNᏆᎷᎪᏞ ᎪᏢᏢᎬᎪᎡᎪNᏟᎬ: 

ᏔᎬᎪᏢᎾN ᎾF ᏟᎻᎾᏆᏟᎬ: Her family is known for being excellent knife wielders and spear throwers. She carries many daggers for launching at enemies and two short spears that can be extended to their full size.

ᎬXᎢᎡᎪ: Dani is very quick and agile. She usually chooses to use her smarts before brawn when in a fight.

Sure, let's start. I think we've waited long enough anyhow!

 

We'll begin with our characters wherever they live, obtaining a letter by someone who delivers it, or really any method you would like. It'll contain an invitation and a brief description, and I'm sure you all can come up with relatively what it would say.

Rynn | Hippogriff Shifter

     Rynn had always expected a life-changing event to happen in some sort of grand or flashy way. Perhaps with an underlying sense of doom or trepidation, or maybe even a bang or sudden glowing light. She certainly did not expect it to come in the form of a pigeon.

 

     Rynn had been going about her daily business in the village, milling around the various market stalls and stands. There had been a sudden rise in the popularity of dresses with wide and lacy trims, and Rynn had come to see why. She didn't really understand what all the fuss was about, much preferring pants herself, but some of the articles of clothing were admittedly stylish. In fact, her own mother had attempted to convince her to buy a few, insisting that Rynn was "not girly enough!" Rynn had only scoffed in distaste and moved on. She eventually left her mother behind with her father to go observe some items of more interest. One vendor called out to random passerby, and though his voice was lost to the many cries and murmurs of the marketplace, Rynn was attracted to his stall anyway. 

"Good evening Mr. Haldaway."

"Ah, Rynn. You've come later than usual." The old man turned and began sorting through his various wares as Rynn answered.

"Yes, my family was very interested in the newest fashion in dresses." Mr. Haldaway chuckled softly. He turned back around with a small, faded blue book in his hands.  Rynn grinned and took it eagerly.

"As you can see, I finally recieved your latest book request. It has everything in your preferences, from magic to entertaining sword fights."

"Thank you!"

"You're welcome." Rynn payed for the book with her own money before bidding the old man goodbye and heading off. Her family accepted her fondness of reading well enough, but her parents weren't quite fans of spending money on said books. Still, Rynn loved her family all the same.

 

     It was here that the big change occurred. Rynn's family had decided to linger in the market for a while longer, so Rynn started heading back to her house alone. It was in a particularly empty part of the road that the pigeon appeared. The bird landed awkwardly just a few feet ahead of Rynn, and Rynn soon realized why. A crisp white letter was tied to one of the bird's legs. A messenger pigeon! Rynn quickly untied it, and the bird flew away in seconds. The front of the letter read, "To: Miss Rynn Omasin, From: the SoS" Then, in bolder typing, "Please read in privacy." What on this good planet was the SoS? And how did they know her? Thoughts swirling, Rynn stuffed the letter into her small purse and hurried the rest of the way to her house, eager to read it.

Skyra//Chupacabra shifter

  Two teens, one male and one female, were dueling out in a small field, with a large crowd of kids around them ranging from age 10-15. The two teens in the center were practicing Sabre Fencing, but the male was on the offensive, with feint after feint being thrown at the female, who was parrying each attack with ease. After a few minutes of feint then parry, the male preformed a lunge at her head, in which a quick circle parry followed by a disengage was done by the female, pointing the tip of the Sabre a little into his neck. A few tense, quiet seconds passed, then a shout of the reffere issued that the match was over. The female backed her Sabre out of his neck, and lowered her arm to her side, quickly taking off her mesh helmet.

   "I almost got her, but my lunge messed me up." The male said as he joined he small group of friends, but a voice stopped him, "​Hey, Ric!"

   It was the female who won the match as she approched Ric, helmet and Sabre in hand, "​Ric, that was a good match we had. Make sure to work on your lunges, ok?"

   Ric stared at the silver-haired female, quickly saying, "Ok, Skyra. Have a safe trip home."

   ---

   Skyra Vermillion stepped into the brezzy afternoon air as she felt the familiar fealing of home while walking through the metal gate in the front yard. Usually both parent's were out and about, usualy for royalty things, so Skyra was home alone most of the time, unless her siblings came over from 'cross state. Before stepping up to go inside her huge home, Skyra saw somthing flying to her in the corner of her eye.

   '​Carrier pigeon..!'

   As Skyra held out her hand for the pigeon to land on, she noticed a small note atached to the pigeon's leg. The feathered bird landed on her arm, and untieing the note, the bird flew off imideatly after.

"​To: Miss Skyra Lee Vermillion

​From: The SoS

​Please read in privacy."

"​The SoS..?" Skyra softly said aloud as she headed inside and into her room, willing to read the letter.

Astra| Raiju Shifter

((WHEW! This is going to be a LOT of writing. I don't think anyone will read all of it anyway. Oh well! No rabbid dogs for you!!!))

 

 

 

CRACK'

The noise of a stick creaking underfoot sent the long-eared Rabbit hurling into the foliage. Astra hissed under her breath, cursing whoever was blundering around the forest and chasing away her kills. Astra let her arrow slide forward in the bow and relaxed. That's when she heard the barking, Astra tensed and fear of discovery gripped her stomach. The huntress flicked the arrow back into her quiver and slung the bow over her shoulder. The barking grew louder-- the hunting dogs were arriving. Astra dove into the nearest thicket, unfortunately, she was upwind from the sound. The dogs could easy detect her. As ifon cue the barking frenzied. Astra heard a shout followed by the pounding of paws. She couldn't be found here! She darted out of the brush and hared down a slightly worn down animal-trail. The only woods near her village was on the king's personal property. Only nobles and royalty were aloud to hunt there. No doubt whoever was hunting this morning thought Astra was a deer. The dogs knew better. Suddenly a Caine face appeared from the greenery Infront of her. The dog's hackles raised, it's face was contorted in a terrifying snarl. Astra was all to familar with this hunting strategy. For smaller kills like rabbits and rodents, the huntsmen would send out falcons. For larger animals, they would send their dogs to out run it and heard it twords the horses. 

 

 

So instead, Astra charged straight to the dog. She leapt over it, the dog jumped to meet her. Powerful, foamng jaws snapped just inches away from her foot. Instead the sharp teeth found the edge of her cloak. Astra yelped as the dig tugged down hard, she would of fallen down if her fingers hadn't found a grip on a low hanging tree branch. The dog managed to make a howling sound while its jaws were clamped firmly on the fabric. The hutning dog sneered and thrashed it's huge head to and fro. Astra's fingers slipped. She inhaled sharply and swung her legs up and down, finally she managed to catch her foot on the branch. She puked herself up.

'RIIIIP.'

Her cloak tore and the dig was sent flailing into the grasses below. Still the black fabric was encased in it's mouth. Astra sat up in her tree branch, gasping for air. The dog's packmates had now located her and we're circling the tree dangerously. Is Astra dewled here, the dogs would alert their Masters and she could be killed. So Astra began to climb, as soon as she started moving, the dogs went wild. Barking and slobbering and howling.

"Shhh! Your barking up the wrong tree." Astra mumbled scarcasticly under her breath.

She couldn't resist. It was all too soon when she got up high enough to the point where the branches were getting dangerously thin. The only good thing about this entire experience was that the leaves around her were so dense that from below it would be impossible to locate her. As long as she remained still.

 

 

 

Voices sounded below.

"I swear it went this way!"

"What kind of boar climbs trees?"

"A very smart one."

The first one appeared to be younger. The second older; both were male. Astra believed that this was father and son. It was tradition to take your son out boar hunting on the day he turned 13. If he killed the beast then the father would skin it and use the hide as a cloak. This signified the boys journey to manhood. If he did not kill the boar, then he would have to wait another year. 

"Dogs! Cut it! You aren't trained to chase squirrels." The man hollered at the dogs.

The rabid animals were unfazed, presisting their barking.

"Father, they never get this riled up unless they see a deer. Maybe there is something worth noting in that tree." The son suggested. 

Astra held her breath in the silence that followed.

"I don't see anything. Unless you want to climb up there." The older man scoffed.

"Well... I-I guess not, father." The bow replied.

"Move along then. Come in dogs!" 

The barking was cut short by a Yelp then a growl. Astra finally allowed herself to breathe as she heard the footsteps falling away. After waiting a few moments, she slid out of the tree and began to jog home.

 

 

 

Astra hung up her cloak on the hanger, having stashed her bow and quiver in a hollow tree.

"Astra's home! Astra's home!" A hitch pitch squeal was followed by a young child-like no older than 6 running around the corner. Lily threw her arms around Astra and hugged her tight, her small freckled face burried into Astra's side.

"Hows my little flower?" Astra cooed.

"Did you bring me anything? Did you? Did you?" Lily dislodged herself from the embrance and looked up at Astra with hopeful blue eyes.

"Of course." Astra produced a lily flower from her satchel. Lily gasped. Astra pushed her sister's hair back and tucked the pond lily between her sister's ear. "There," Astra sat back to admire her handiwork, "you look beautiful." 

"I wanna see!" Lily skidded outside, since her family couldn't afford a mirror, they used the murky well as their only scorce of water and reflection. Even so, the water had to be boiled before it was safe to drink.

"Astra." A sunked down, worn out face appeared.

Astra's gaze ahrdened as she glared at her father.

"What?" She asked. The old had given up on life since her mother's death. Astra had to care for Lily alone while he aimlessly worked on the fields. Still every day his Appearence grew more and more ghastly.

"There's a falcon for you." He looked at her, with an almost hopeful expression.

Astra removed the scrawny turkey she managed to shoot after her encounter with the dogs and placrd it in the kixthen table. Astra never told anyone what happened on her hunting trips, she did not want to share any misgivings. Nor did she want to worry Lily. Unlike herself, Lily was an compassionate  person. She walked past her dad without saying a sword. Nerve rose up in her, why would she get mail? Had they found out? 

 

 

Astra pushed her way out of the back entrance and down the dirt path. She didn't have far to walk before she entered a small wooden shack. The shack was laidened with hay flooring and old bird perches. Astra unlatched one of the many rows of cages. She grabbed her handler's glove and slidmit on. She stuck a piece of raw meat into her mittened hand and swung open the door. A pristine falcon stared back at her.

"We'll come on then." Astra coaxed.

The falcon hopped twoards her and then onto her glove. He used his powerful talons to dig into the leather gloves and tear apart the meat with his beak. Even through the thick mitten, Astra felt the pressure on her wrist. Being protective of his meat, the falcon wrapped his wings around it, guarding it from anyone who may try to steal his meal. With her free hand Astra untied the slip of paper from his leg. The envelope was small and fancily sealed with was, which was decorated with a symbol she never seen before.

 

 

Once the bird was done, Astra cajoaled him back into his cage and slipped off her handler's glove. She carefully undid the fancy seal and read the letter inside. Most girls cannot read, the schooling systems never saw them fit to learn. But Astra's mother taught her, against her father's wishes. And Astra was currently teaching Lily. What Astra read caused her jaw to drop. She was being invited to a school to learn how to shapeshift. Astra couldn't believe her eyes. It wasn't just a school, it was the most pristegious academy ever to be built. 

 

 

 

 

And she was invited to attend....

Ben Calder & Ciera Skyborn

Ben scrambled through the blacksmith's shop, dodging a hammer as it sailed over the ebony-haired boy's head, crashing into a shelf on the opposite side and knocking over a few bins. An angry, well-muscled, red-faced man stormed through the shop, bellowing at the top of his lungs. "BENJAMIN, IF YOU DON'T GET OVER HERE RIGHT NOW, I'LL-"

The wiry boy ducked under some crates as the blacksmith stormed through the shop, breaking some of his own possessions as he went. Ben dodged around a table and rolled stealthily under it, popping out on the other side outside the blacksmith's shop and making a run for the grassy green field.

Ben hated his job as the blacksmith's apprentice, for multiple reasons. One, Reo was completely over the top with his fear factor and Ben was completely terrified of him. Second, it was a stupid job and he'd rather be climbing trees. Third, he was completely terrible at it anyway. As dexterous as he was, Ben seemed to be a klutz around small objects.

Ben dashed through the emerald green grass and came halting to a stop at the top of the hill, once he was sure that Reo hadn't followed. He plopped down, panting, shedding his black leather coat and leaving only his white shirt underneath, revealing his skinny pale arms to the sunlight. Ben blinked against the sun and looked up at the clear blue sky. It was a beautiful day indeed.

He was possibly the most ordinary teenager in the entirety of his boring village; or at least, according to himself. Everyone there was relatively ordinary, but Ben even more so. His parents had dropped him off in a cradle as a child at the entrance of the village, and his raising had been a collective effort. Instead of a strong warrior to protect the villagers from what stalked them during the night, they got Ben instead. Skittish, weedy, completely un-warriorlike Ben.

He was fine with that, though. He was completely fine with being ordinary.

Ben sighed and tipped his head back, looking up at the sky. And when he looked up, that's exactly what he had expected to see- sky. But something black stood against the blue canvas painted above him, and was slowly descending and growing larger in size. Ben sat upright, following the speck with his curious green eyes.

A large pigeon swooped down above him and landed beside him. Ben narrowed his eyes at the fat gray bird. He had always hated pigeons, and their annoying constant cooing about the town square that drove him mad. But this one had the look of importance- there was something wise in it's beady black eyes.

It extended a bird foreleg to Ben, and to the boy's surprise,  there was something tied around it. Weathered parchment was tied by a leather string, and Ben took it off the bird's leg. The pigeon cooed knowingly and then shot into the sky, vanishing in seconds.

Ben unraveled the note and read it quickly. An invitation? He couldn't believe his eyes. An invitation to a...shapeshifting school? "I can't believe this," he murmured. "I'm a shapeshifter."

He looked down at his hands, wondering if anything extraordinary would happen. Nothing did. He shrugged. "Well, there has to be a purpose."

There was a location entailed on the letter. Ben stood to his feet and dashed to the village, off to gather his meager belongings and head straight for the School of Shifting.

Whatever that was.

"Can't catch me!" Ciera swerved out of the way of another snowball, her wild brown locks bouncing behind her. She jumped over a snowbank and performed a well executed stop, drop, and roll, as a younger girl squealed with delight and let loose another volley of snowballs. Ciera laughed and rolled through the snow, avoiding all the snowballs with ease.

She leapt to her feet and was about to turn and run, when one hit her squarely in the face. Ciera yelped and wiped the snow off her face, glaring at the younger girl, who's bouncing pigtails and innocent childish eyes suggested she could do no wrong. "Hey! That's cold!"

"Of course it's cold, silly," the child said. "We live in the mountains."

Ciera looked around. The tall pine trees and three-foot-deep snow certainly proved her younger sister's point. "Oh, fine, you win. I'm going to head back to the village." She turned to walk back through the trees, but spun at the last second and flung powered snow at the little girl. Her sister laughed with delight as the snow covered her thick winter jacket. "Got you, Errie!" Ciera laughed.

"Cheater!" the little girl said, her eyes sparkling. Errie bounded up beside her sister and the two started off towards the thin column of black smoke that was rising above the treetops.

Once they reached the village, the log cabins came into view. Ciera and Errie headed toward one of the bigger cabins, stepping inside.

"Brush off that snow before you come marching in," said a chastising, but kindly voice. Their mother stood behind a stone stove, while it gave off warm heat that warmed the two of them immediately. "And Ciera, there's mail for you."

"Mail for me?" The girl cocked her head, but her eyes settled on the mysterious rolled up parchment laying on the table. Ciera went for it and slowly unraveled it, immediately interested by the fancy scrawling and beautiful calligraphy.

"It's an...an invitation!" Ciera's heart beat faster every second she read. "To the School of Shifting." She could hardly believe it. "I'm a shapeshifter?"

Her mother had a smile on her face. "Congratulations, Ciera. We're proud of you."

"Does that mean...does that mean I can go?" Ciera practically squirmed in her seat. "That's- that's amazing!"

"Lucky," Errie said. "I wanna be a shapeshifter!"

"Maybe someday you will be," Ciera's mother chuckled. "Now go pack, Ciera. We'll take you to halfway to the School whenever you're ready." Her mother nodded slowly. "We'll miss you, but we'll be seeing each other again. Now shoo!" Ciera smiled and dashed off to her room.

 

 

((Wow, that was a lot of writing! And as a side note, terms for the SoS last over a summer. So they'll spend the summer there, and then go back to whatever they do over what would be school months for us. For those who've read Percy Jackson and the Olympians, it's rather like that.))

Rynn | Hippogriff Shifter

     The first thing Rynn did when she got to her house was carefully close the door before hurrying along to her room and shutting that door as well. Her satchel she dropped on the dresser. Then Rynn unceremoniously flopped onto her bed to read the letter. It was... shocking. It was revealed that Rynn was a shapeshifter, one of few. She had been invited to attend an over-summer school in which she would learn more about her powers and how to control them. Rynn had to read the letter over twice before she believed it, and another time before she made up her mind. She would be going. If this letter was true, then Rynn would most definitely need help controlling her abilities, especially in the village. Luckily, Rynn's family would most likely not need much help from her. Her mother tended to their house and small plot of farming land while her father stayed at the house for a couple weeks at a time and spent the rest of the time trading. He was a fairly profitable merchant. In fact, he had only just returned from a particularly plentiful trip, and with Rynn's eager younger brother around, she wouldn't be missed much. Rynn would finally be able to see the world beyond the dusty roads and endless gossip of her village. There weren't many interesting people here anyway. Most of the girls her age were far too content to settle down with a husband and live a simple life, and nearly all of the boys were busy working or helping with their father's businesses. The only thing Rynn could really imagine missing was her family, though she could deal with some time away from them as well. 

 

     The only problem was, how would she get there? Would an escort or guide be coming to pick her up? Or would Rynn have to travel all by herself? And how would Rynn explain her sudden need to leave to her family? Doesn't matter, I'm going to this school no matter what. I need to learn more about my powers and finally be with people like me. Yes. Yes, that was right. Rynn would figure things out as she went along. There were vague directions at the bottom of the letter that she could follow if need be. She wasted no time in preparing. Summer was already beginning to settle in, and Rynn really didn't want to be late in acquainting herself with potential friends. She slipped into her favorite, most travel-worthy set of clothing, which consisted of flexible but durable brown boots, beige pants, and a fitting green shirt with elbow-length sleeves to keep her warm without being uncomfortable. Next, Rynn emptied her satchel of all but what she considered necessary: her coin pouch and her only piece of jewelry, an iron necklace with a shell pendant that her father had gotten for Rynn as a gift from a seaside town. Rynn didn't want to risk breaking it while she travelled. She was filling the rest of the bag with extra food when her family returned. Just in time.

"Hello Rynn, dear. What are you doing?"

Arion Strider| Wolf shifter

          The dirt road young Arion was trodding down was barely lit by the now dimming sun, mostly thanks to the plethra of trees covering it. He had spent all afternoon down at the nearby ravine in hopes of catching enough fish to sell at the market the next day, but alas only a handfull of them sat in his basket, barely enough to feed him and his family that night.

 

          Wiping the persperation off his forehead, Arion begrudgingly made his way back home, not looking forward to his parents dissappiontment. They'd be fine, though. He'll just have to find a new spot tomorrow.

 

          Thanks to his worrying of life in general, he almost didn't see the little pidgeon that had landed in front of him. Giving the bird a sideways look, he eventually began to creep closer to it until he could see the letter tied to its foot.

 

'Now who's this for?' He wondered while removing the letter.

 

"To: Arion Strider

From: the SoS

Please read in privacy."

 

​Arion was feeling a few emotions all at once. The first being suprise that he of all people had recieved mail, and from a carrier pidgeon no less! Second being apprehention at what the letter could possible hold.

 

... And third being a little humor towards the acronym.

 

Stuffing the letter in his bag, he looked up to see the pidgeon had left, presumedly to fly home for the night. Arion followed suit, picking up his pace from before to get home and read the letter in better lighting.
