Twilight, Scamp, Nora and Jason

"Oh Twilight" Ian whispers, shock and sorrow in his eyes. "I'm... sorry. I'm so sorry" he says, pressing his face against hers comfortingly. Twilight's eyes fill with tears and she leans into him greatfully. "Thanks Ian" she whispers hoarsely, blinking her tears away. She nuzzles him, suddenly feeling guilty she had mentioned the maze and make him upset on her behalf. "I'm ok now though. Really, I am" she says and takes a few steps back, smiling up at him thankfully. "Come on, you've gotta focus on flying now" she tells him firmly. "You'll probably be more help to him than me" she says to Cutt.

 

"Boulder.. boulder.. hmmm..." Scamp mumbles and looks around, his eyes narrowed. "We'd better stick together, so we don't get lost" Jason says, then steps into the maze, Scamp and Nora close behind. He pauses at the first fork in the path, then looks back at the other two, looking embarrassed. "Anyone got any ideas how to get through a maze?" he asks. Nora nods slowly. "I heared somewhere that if you keep following the left wall, you'll get out eventually.. o-or maybe it was the right wall... and it's always best to leave some mark for yourself so you don't end up going in circles" she says. "The circles thing sounds more important than which wall we follow. Pretty sure it's against the rules to use fire, so maybe you should do it with your amber" Jason says thoughtfully. Nora nods and smiles. "I'll try. Which way should we go though?" Scamp sniffs both ways. "Smells more like kytes to the right, so we should go left" he says. Nora nods again, lines herself up and shoots a small ball of amber at the left wall. The trio then set off down the left fork in the maze.

Gusto, in his glee, ignoring

Gusto, in his glee, ignoring both the Kytes part and the Boulder part, speed through the maze loudly, potentially waking every single Kytes up. If his laughter didn't then him ramping and bursting through walls will, the only thing that will keep him away form getting chew. now is A: He might be fast enough to get to the exit first, B: the Lightning surrouding him C: the dragon nip is too strong that the baby might not be waking up despite all the reckus

Argos, Ian, Twins

Argos:

"About Cutt, June, Nora, Jason, Twilight, Mareena, Zima, Gusto, Ogma, Flitt, that Dramillion Dragonblood, and yourself. To start where did each come from, how did you meet them, what is the Dramillion's name."

 

 

Ian:

"Thank you Ian. I'm ok now though, really, I am." She said after a moment, taking a few steps back. This time her smile was strong. "Come on, you gotta focus on your flying now."

"Right," He nodded to the brave Nightlight and opened his wings. He beat them a few times, lifting about a foot or so off before messing up his timing and stumbling to the ground again.

*@Maz or Ginger: He doesn't know he could try folding his second pare of wings into the upper, main pair, like cloudjumper had when he was first introduce in HTTYD2*

 

 

Twins, Kytes, Ebony:

 

The dragonnip was not strong enough to keep the baby Kytes from waking- especially with Gusto charging through the walls. Not strong enought to keep them from waking and definitely not strong enought to keep them from causing trouble.

Flitt's baby Kyte opened an eye, spotting her. 

With a wild and delighted cry it launched at her face, landing on her head, biting her nose and then using her head as a launchpad. If flew crazy, ornery circles around her chewing at her wings and tail.

Three others ganged up on Gusto, flying annoying circles in front of him, barking, toasting him with their firebreath when they couldn't get through his electrical zappings, and occasionally sneaking past the electricity to nip at his heels. This usually ended with a zap and a bark.

One more of the flashy little oragne dragons came out of nowhere and latched onto Scamps head, gnawing on his nose-horn.

"These guys?" Ebony ran up to scamp, putting her paws around the baby latched to his face and pulling. It gripped naughtily, refusing to let go while waging it's tail in taunt.

Instinctively she stopped pulling and started whacking at the tail, slapping Scamp once or twice by accident. "They are sooo ornery!"

"Oh no, some's released the Kytes! Better find that living boulder while you still have eyes to look! Or not, personally I don't get tired of this." Tuff cackled, enjoying the chaos below.

"Yes! She holds the secrets to calming these terrors down again. Use them sparingly, you might need them later on." Ruff added.

Mareena, Dunestar, Shade

Shade was about to say something - anything - to Twilight, but she was gone. He didn't want to seem desperate, so he decided not to follow them. Darn it. He turned his attention on the maze, shifting to dramillion form. He stepped warily forward, traveling slwoly in case of traps. Gusto was far ahead, the skrill blasting through the tunnels. He scented many smaller dragons a bit further away and decided to investigate those. Flitt was nearby those dragons and most of them were asleep. A few had woken up from Gusto's rampage however.

 

Mareena rolled her eyes at the twins and followed after them. She wrinkled her nose at the maze. She wasn't going in there. She shifted to dragon form and climbed on top of the cave, curling up with her tail dangled into the mouth of the dark cave. She watched her brother go in, and Cutt, Ian, and Twilight head into the woods. She heard squealing from inside, and a scream from Sasha. She sighed and a blue stream of smoke snaked up from her snout. 

 

Dunestar growled at the cave and instead pounced on the twins, chewing on their hair. He wasnt really into dark, cold caves, and figured he'd just annoy these humans instead.

"I guess I could do that. Alright, Nora, Jason, and Mabin were all on Dragonblood island when I found them. Twilight came with the other Dragonbloods from Berk, and before that, she was trapped at a dragon fighting arena. Not sure about Flitt, and I know Mareena comes from a different island, and has some healing skills. I think Cutt started off as a dragon, and she's a hybrid. All the wild dragons lived on Dragonblood island before the Dragonbloods found them, and the Dramillion's name is Shade. As for me, I was shipwrecked when I was eight, on an island near Berk. The riders found me and brought me to Berk, but I don't like them that much. I discovered I was a Dragonblood when the night I was shipwrecked. I come from an island called Snowstorm Island, but it's in shambles now. It's to the far North, past the Fog Bank."

Root charged into the maze room and promptly got assaulted by Kytes. Not that he cared. He just went charging on into a wall.

 

‘Ow ow OW,’ Flitt groaned, batting at the Kyte with her wings and tail. She vaguely heard what the twins said and a part of her mind connected the clues they had dropped. With another bat at the young dragon she called out as loud as she dared, hoping the other Kytes in the maze didn't come swarming in. ‘Meatlug!’

    Remembering she was a Flightmare, she twisted around and froze the dragon that was chewing on her tail. Not enough to completely freeze it, but enough for it to slow down to a snail's pace.

Mareena, Dunestar, Shade

Shade bounded over the little dragons, flapping his wings to try and avoid them. Flitt's shout woke more of them up and they stirred. As he handed, a couple launched onto his tail and legs, clawing their way up his scales. He hissed in annoyance and copied Flitt, breathing her mist over the masses. He couldn't get all of them, but the ones closest froze. he wasn't as sparing as Flitt. He shook the little dragons off and they fell limply. He shook his head and continued on. (OOC: what's past the little dragons?)

 

Mareena smirked as she heard Shade's growls from deep within. She watched in amusement as Dunestar tackled the twins. She heard Twilight and Ian talking in the woods, but didn't want to interrupt.

 

Dunestar curled up on Ruffnut and purred, rumbling both himself and the human.

"Hmm. Snowstorm Island...never been there, I don't like fog." 

Most of this he already knew, but Flame's backstory and Shade's name were helpful. The bit about Twilight only confirmed his suspicions, and boosted his trust in what Flame was telling him.

"Who is Mabin?" He fiegned ignorance. "And what about Zima, Gusto, Ogma and June? Where did they come from? I want village names- like Mareena's. Also does the Dramillion have any relation to her?"

 

(@Marenna: Ruff and Tuff are inside the maze narrorating- if Dunestar followed them in he could tackle them, but you said he didn't go in? Sorry for the confusion. Also the next room is Indiana Jones style hop on the right tiles and you won't fall... into a pool of eels. Shrieking Eels no less)

"Zima I'm not sure about,

"Zima I'm not sure about, never got around to talking to her. Omega and Gusto(?) came from Berk, the trip to Dragonblood island was kind of like a punishment for them. Island names? I don't know about those, but I do remember something about Flitt. She's somehow connected to Grimmel. If you want, I could go back to them to get more information."

Argos, twins

Twins:

 

"...Oh. I guess they didn't need the secret appeasement for the baby Kytes." Tuff watched Flitt and then shade freeze the baby dragons. "Way to think outside the box."

"OW! Cut it out!" Ruff tumbled over as Dunestar first chewed her hair, then curled up on top of her. "Bro, you gonna help me or what?"

"Or what. Gusto and Shade are near the exit and I don't know what Root did to it sooo... yeah gonna go. K see ya."

"I will avenge myself!" She shouted as he moved on to the next room, dragon vibrating above her. "Oh hey... that kinda feels good. Maybe put some more pressure on shoulder while your at it? Yeah, that's the spot."

Rahrarrarrarrarrrah! Meatlugs familiar gronckle voice called, not far from Flitt.

 

"Up next, follow the tiles that represent friends, not foes. If you step on a foe, you'll meet with a foe, the kind that shriek!" A lone Thorston snuck to the next room and announced.

 

 

 

 

Argos:

"I would like that very much." Argos grinned. "I want the names of every village each dragonblood was originally from, and when they left their village. I still want to know if Shade and Mareena are siblings too. We'll meet back here in a week's time, if you have the information I want, I'll help you with your dragon problem."

(OOC, @Lissa and @Ginger, do we want a step by step procces of how they taught Ian how to fly? Or do we just want to leave them for a little bit and come back to them after the maze and say like "Ian still wasn't the best at flying, but he was getting better" Or something like that? If we end up doing the step by step one then someone might have to take over Cutt for a brief time as I don't know how to teach a dragon how to fly XD so whatever works best for you guys!)

Ian

(@Maz: We can skip instead of doing the step by step Maz, I'm good with that ^^)

 

After much trial and error, between Cutt and Twilights pointers Ian finally got to a place where he could actually fly. Not well, certainly not beautifully, and we won't even talk about landing, but remaining airborn was a big win.

After a quick victotry spin over the forest he thanked the two for their help and decided to call it a night... they were both still recovering, Cutt especially, and he didn't want to keep them up on his account. Besides he needed to be rested for the next day.

Ian wandered back into town, passing it up and heading toward the docks, to the one they had landed at, where he went to the very end and lay down. He watched the moon reflect back on the still sea in spats of bright light.

Scree!

A terrible terror was rudely pushed off it's perch by it's neighbor. He turned sharply toward the pile where the fisherman's boat was still tied, searching for the noisemaker.

Ohh, the fiddle. He'd left it on top of a nearby barrel. With two wing claws Ian picked it up and put it in front of him, picturing a tiny little house far across that expanse filled with music and silly laughs. He'd fix it. He'd fix it and he'd work for one of the fishermen out here and earn an income and build a new home for Eleanor, Bonny and Grace. It wouldn't be the same...

The Stormcutter glared down at his wings. But they'd be together, and above all the girls would be safe.

As the rythm of the tide drifted him to sleep, Bonny's last words to him repeated over and again.

 

 

(@ Ginger and Cutt: would you/your characters be interested in going on the rescue mission for Ian's family? Or are they going with the team after Argos and Flame? If not interested that's perfectly fine, it was just a random idea which I seem to be having too many of :P ^^)

Scamp, Nora and Jason

Scamp squawks in surprise as one of the little kytes latches onto his face. Scamp grins at first, then snorts and shakes his head in protest as the kyte starts chewing on him. "Hey, get off!" he complains, but it obviously doesn't work. He holds still as Ebony shows up and tries to remove the torment. Nora looks over to them just as she's about to mark the wall with another ball of amber, and she accidentally shoots the blast at the little kyte, coating him in a thin, but strong layer of amber. She gasps and lowers her head. "Oh no, I'm so, so sorry! I didn't meen to!" she wimpers. "Don't worry, I'm sure he'll get out eventually" Jason tries to comfort her, then carefully pries the squeaking kyte from Scamp's nose horn with a pincer. "Come on, let's keep moving."

Flitt narrowed her eyes at the Kyte, noticed Shade had done the same as her then turned round at the noise a Gronckle was making. ‘Meatlug?’ She called again. The friendly dragon barrelled around a corner and straight into the Flightmare, joyously hugging. ‘Ahh, I don't do hugs!’ Flitt tried to scramble away, managing to get out of the friendly torture. ‘I feel like you're needed in the next room for some reason.’

 

 

Root hid in the shadows just by the door of the next room, a Kyte chewing on his foot. He couldn't help but snicker at the chaos that was unfolding. In his hand he held tight to a rope, which led to above the doorway and attached to a trough of water.

Some Kytes caught up to Gusto

Some Kytes caught up to Gusto (3 to be precised) and started to nip and scratch and fire at him, it doesn't done much other than annoying him and Gusto just shout "Out of my ways shrimps!"  and rolling into a ball, like how Razorwhip, Triple stryke, Quaken and well, Skrill would do and rolling into the next challenge like a ball of lightning.

then promptly stopped in his track and even with a field full of dragonnips and a fullmoon, Gusto suddenly seemed to somber enough to gwarking at the challenge (mainly at the eels and water) with the mixer of anger, digust and a hint of fear

"How are we suppose to tell apart who is who!? they all look the same!" Gusto pointed at the tiles angrily and shout to a lone Thornson that made it here first "Also what stopping me from just flying over these junks?"

------------------------------------

During all the Teri stayed away from the challenge. He's normally a competitive person but is conposed and care about his image enough that he thought this entire thing was madness and rather shifted peacefully at the safety of the hut while conforting his friend who go through the full moon process a lot harder and more painful than he is and perhaps afterward a little something more.

and a little more they did, Teri and Doe left the hut for a romantic night flight under the full moon just the two of them. While responsible and known full well he should rest and prepared for tomorrow mission, he is after all still a teenager, a lovestuck one at that.

 

((@Lisa and Ninja, Oof, Not sure how much you need these info as I didn't expect it would be relevent so I didn't put it in the form let alone thinking about it hmmm, I will make it up on the spot then if it helps (But it's up to Flame/Ninja if she choose to know this or not) (and again since it's literally made up on the spot I have no emotion connection to this so if you want your own spin on it, enven the entire of it, feel free)

The Dragonblood safe heaven village/community Gusto and Ogma came from that was mentioned in the bio was called 'Drag-on-down' or Dragon d'own ;A secret spot  place in the middle of the triangle that is the wood/marsh land, the great desert and the barren, A spot on a map called 'White bone end", the whole area was within the mainland.

Similarly to the hidden world to the Dragonblood but much more smaller, Dragon down can only be excessed through air or good hiking ropes as it was within the hole/cave underground The place was caven, dark due to being in the cave/underground but lively enough with all the lamps and fire the dragonbloods can make and a village/maket like buildings within. There're two main exist, one being the mentioned hole in the ground and the other was the tall volcanic crater at the center where they let the moon shine through there, To get through this entrance you need to hike all the way to the top of the crater than drop down at the furhter height than the first entrance. There are (disposable) sand wraith dragonbloods guard team in the first entrance but not the second.

There're actually not many that stay stay in Dragon down much like pre movie 3 the hidden world as they do prefer to come and goes rather than confine within the hole, but they do have some dragonblood being born and settle there. The night markets are the best part of this village as you would see all kind of dragonblood freely in their hybrid form selling and interacting with each other.

Gusto and Ogma left not long after Hiccup found out about this place for a rematch but then got punnish at berk and never get to come back))

Mareena, Dunestar, Shade

Mareena watched Ian's many trials from afar, seeing his four wings shake the trees on the edge of the forest. She sighed and climbed down from her perch on the cave to peer into the darkness. Growls and shrieks came from within. Yeah, no thanks. She flapped her wings, rising up to look at Berk from above. It was bigger than Clove. She missed Clove. It was always hot and dry there, but it was still her home. She wondered if her sister had told the clan. She probably had. 

 

Dunestar purred louder and sniffed the girl's face. "You smell better than Hiccup," he growled, even though she couldn't understand him. He bounced on the teenager a couple times before bounding after the others. Most of the Kytes were either covered in amber or covered in paralyzing mist. He walked through easily and saw Shade and Gusto at the border of some tiles painted with faces. He analyzed them curiously and poked one with his paw. He almost lost his balance as the tile dropped and drew back with a yelp, running to hide behind Gusto. 

 

Shade looked at the tiles. He recognized the twins' faces, Hiccup's, Root's, and all of the dragnblood group member's. He looked at the rendering of his own face and frowned. "I don't look like that." He rolled his eyes and hopped onto one with Hiccup's face. Did Root count as a friend or foe?

Cutt was utterly tired. Although she would tell everyone else she was wasn't, she was. Ian and went off by himself and she noticed that he needed some alone tme. Maybe Twilight would want to stay with her "Hey Twilight?" she turned towards the night light. "Do you want to come with me to ask Hiccup where we can all sleep tonight?" 

......

June had watched the dragonbloods go into the cave. "grr" she mumbled. Why couldn't they stop messing around and start helping her? The sooner they did the sooner she'd be gone. she sat down and rapped her arms around herself. she really needed somewarmer clothes.

 

(@Lissa, I feel like Cutt would want to help Ian. She doesn't even really know what's going on with Argos... So Cutt will go with Ian for his family.)

(also, @Lissa, how old are Grace and Bonny?)

Flitt stopped just before the doorway. ‘Root?’ She said when she heard him giggle. She looked up at the top of the doorway, spotted the trough, followed the top attached to it and found Root. She stepped towards him as if she was going over to tell him off, but instead darted through the doorway. Only a moment later there was a crash and a spray of water.  He's just missed.

    She heard someone ask if Root was a friend or foe. ‘He's a friend as long as you don't steal his food.’ She said.

"Philistine!" Tuff gasped at Gusto as Flitt narrowly escaped Root's bucket of water. "I painted each and very one of those by hand, they are works of art! Granted some are rushed -sorry Shade- but overall, pretty impressive considering your new faces haven't even been here a full day. Was it tough? Yes, yes it was, BUT THATS MY MIDDLE NAME. Actually it's my first name my middle name is Brian. Also these eels have a bad habit of launching out of the water screaming like wild banshees when they hear wingbeats."

Freed from Dunestar, that other twin stalked toward her brother as he spoke.
"Yeah, wingbeats and a girl's scream." Ruff whispered in his ear before pushing him off the ledge.

Tuff screamed as described above and splashed into the water. a series of eerie shrieks retaliated and electricity flashed in the pool below.

"OH I AM HURT! I AM VERY MUCH HURT!" He thrashed between painful Ow!s and Oh!s.

"Ahh," Ruff crooned pleasantly. "Cold and unexpected. Actic water and being shocked; how much closer can you get?"

Sensing the dragons above, the eels started snapped up at them.

"Well have at it!" Ruff snuck around, leaving her brother to figure out how to escape on his own. "See ya, bro."

"OW! This is WAY WORSE OW! Then what I did to you! OW!"

 

 

 

(@Maz... and kind of @all: ok! Though Ian's supposed to go with the group hunting Argos. His plan is to keep just outside of Argos grasp but close enough the Deathgripper thinks capturing the Stormcutter is possible. If Argos loses track of Ian he'll go back to Mykines to take Ian's family, that's why Ian's was planning to do it this way. Rescuing his family is very important and if he can't do it himself, he'd want either Twilight, Cutt or both to go (if they're up for it) because they are the only two he fully trusts. *Flitt's a close third, but she disappears so he doesn't know her as well*

 

But, I might switch it around and have him go on the rescue mission after all. That's what he wants to do; as far as Argos is concerned he just wants to be sure they never cross paths again. Bonny is sixteen and Grace is the same age as Cutt, maybe a year younger ^^)

"Urgh!" Gusto groaned at

"Urgh!" Gusto groaned at Ruff's answer before turned and narrowed his eyes at the obstacles in front of him "Well you slimefaces, there can only be one zappy beast in the room alright!?"

Despite his chonfident boost, he doesn't fly but instead tiptoeing on the tiles. With the way his build is, with the head sticking out far from the two leg it was difficult to see where he's stepping on plus he's truthful when he told Ruff he couldn't tell anyone apart

"Wait" He said, looking at the particular tiles. His eyes rounded at the face of a laughing gremlin man with long nose, chin, sharp teeth and amazing hair and eyes like a decil and then Ogma "That's me!"

He promptly jump on that tile which imediatally gave away and drop him down to the water below with the eel, Gusto screamed as he fell "Why am I the bad guyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!?????????" SPlash!

((Hope this is okay XD))

Twilight, Scamp, Nora and Jason

Scamp, Nora and Jason (and Ebony?) finally make it through the maze and catch up with the others. "Eels!" Scamp wimpers and steps back, and Jason grimaces and stays at the scuttleclaw's side. Nora tilts her head though and comes a little closer to the edge, looking down with a curious, not fearful, expression.

 

Twilight yawns and nods to Cutt. "Yeah, sounds good" she smiles. "Glad we got Ian in the air, at least. He'll have a better chance at survival" she says quietly, shuddering. She shakes her head, trying to drive thoughts of danger from her mind, and follows Cutt. "Everyone's going after Argos and Flame tomorrow, right?"

 

(@ Lissa: sounds good! Twilight would normally want to go after Argos, but if she has a nightmare (which are always very vivid for her) about him and if Ian asks her, she'll definately go rescue Ian's family)

I exited the maze softly, looking for someplace to get some food. I found a nearby house, and slipped inside, stealing their dinner without any problem. I then began to run to the forest, trying to find shelter for the night.

----------------------------------------

"Okay, Argos, we have a deal." I flew off back towards Berk, staying in full the entire way. As I neared Berk, I was getting tierd. I glided to a small seastack, and landed on it. I curled up, settling down on the cold, hard, ground.

Mareena, Dunestar, Shade

Mareena dove down to the waters surrounding Berk, skimming across the cool splashes and watching her reflection in the water. He sharp dragon features were softened by the backlight from the moon, and her wings looked more purple than red. She sighed, watching a couple of tide gliders nearby. (She'll probably just hang around until someone needs her. Maybe she can meet Flam or Argos? @ninja @Lissa)

 

Shade smirked as Gusto fell in, and backed up back onto the first box as the eels began to jump. He frowned at the warily. He remembered that eels were nocturnal and decided to create some light. Hmmm...who's light was the brightest? Nora's was just amber, Jason's was acid flames, Flitt's was paralyzing and glowed, but not that bright. Hmm. He decided to go with his own fire. He took a breath and blasted a sloud of yellow and purple fire, encmpassing th top of the cave. The eels below hissed loudly and shrnk back. He leapt onto a tile with Ruff's face on it, then one with Mare's, then Cutt's. As he jumped for the last one, his claw slipped from a splash an eel had made and he slammed into the side of he tiles, causing several to drop off. He desperately hung on to one with Nora's face, while also curling up his tail to avoid being shocked. "Guys?! A little help?" he called to Nora, Jason, and Flitt. 

 

Dunestar busied himself blasting at the eels from the safety of the edge of the cave, careful to avoid Ruffnut.

Flitt glowed a bit as it was, so as she followed Shade the eels moved back a little. But not much. The fire the Dramillion had shot helped to ward them off, though.

    She hopped onto a tile with Root's face on and leapt off again in case it fell. It didn't, but the one she trod on by accident did. She scrambled to safety just as Shade called for help. 

    She wasn't much use without hands, but she tried her best to pull him back up.

(@Chame: yeah that works, I could see the twins doing that xD

@Ginger: Alrighty, thanks! We'll let it play out see where it goes^^

@Mare: Argos won't come to Berk right now, he's doin other stuffs)

 

 

 

Twins, Ebony:

 

Despite his painful situation Tuff snickered as Gusto shouted on the way down. "Ha- OW! fellow wallower- OW! in misery, I knew you- OW! would fall for that one!"

"Eels?!?" Ebony repeated after Scamp, pupils turning to slits. "What joyke puts eels in a cave?" She looked up at Nora, who showed no fear of the creatures. "Yoooo, you're not scared?? Do you eat eels? Maybe you can eat them for us!"

"What? OW! No! It took months to raise these eels and months more to get them to the cave. Hmm. In hindsight, perhaps we should have raised them here in the cave. Ow!"

Dunestar started blasting the slithery things from the safety of the ledge.

"My children!!"

Shade shot a blast of bright light into the ceiling, and the eels shrieked, shrinking away. Tuff leapt at the opportunity to escape, using Gusto's face as a step ladder and climbing up on the ledge as the dramillion above  hopped nearly all the way across the tiles before slipping. 

"Guys, a little help?!?" Shade dangled precariously from the next tile. 

Ebony paced back and forth a moment making nightfury noises and she couldn't tell which face was which: she knew everyone by smell not sight. Without warning the dragon charged across the tiles at her fastest speed, knocking a huge chunk of them down to rain upon Tuff and Gusto. By dumb luck she managed to grasp the ledge on the other side before falling, and clambered back up. With those wide yellow eyes she stared down at Shade while Flitt tried to help him.

She joined the Flightmare, grabbing one of Shade's horns with a paw and pulling.

 

 

Argos:

Idiot! The moment Flame was out of range Argos chided himself. So busy chasing gronckles he wasn't paying attention to the sky... she would have had him dead to rights if that was what she'd come for. Good thing it wasn't.

A pleased feeling eminated from his inner being to show on his face. Frustrated as he was about his own negligence, he'd learned a very good deal in a very short amount of time. Not as much as he needed but enough to get started. Argos launched from the tree, deciding first to find another gronckle then go back to his makeshift lair... in case Flame doubled back.

the zapping doesn't bother

the zapping doesn't bother him much but the water and the bites and their disgusting slimy smell do. Gusto screamed angrily as he wrestling with the eels and is about to loose when Shade scared them away. but He is humiliated once more when Tuff stepped on his face and a tile landed censored his head with a BONK. Disable him from continue on to catch up with others temporaly.

Cutt nodded at Twilights thoughts on Ians flying skills. She was glad that they were able to help him. she stopped walking a moment when she asked what they were doing tomorrow. "I'm not sure" she responded "We should probably ask Hiccup about that too..." Cutt sighed "I kinda wanted us to be able to take a break from fighting and running and hiding..." She tried to smile, although it wasn't super convincing "Oh well, I'm sure we'll get there soon" Cutt and Twilight headed off to Hiccup.

 

"Hey Hiccup!" Cutt called out "You doing allright?" Cutt noticed his tired eyes. she quickly went on though, unable to help it "Do you know where we can stay for the night? Also, do you know what we're doing tomorrow?

(I forgot I was playing Hiccup XD)

Hiccup looked up from where he was staring out over the sea. It looked so calm out there, so inviting. He wanted fly out there and explore. 'Oh, hey,' he greeted, curling his tail around his legs. 'I'm fine, how are you? There's a large hut in the woods where you could stay if you want; just past my house. I can show you.' He looked back to the sea. 'As for tomorrow, I'm going to send out a small raid party to go to Ian's home and organise who is going on the mission to find Argos.'

    With a rustle of his wings he stood up and gestured for them to follow.

Twilight, Scamp, Nora and Jason

Nora nods thoughtfully at Ebony's quetion as to if she eats eels. "Maybe.. I'll only try it if I have to though" she says slowly, then jumps onto the first tile. She only makes slow progress, as her deathsong legs aren't really built for jumping. Jason and Scamp follow reluctantly.

 

Twilight nods and half spreads her wings, prepared to follow Hiccup, then frowns slightly. "Why send a raid party to Ian's home?" she asks.

‘To bring back his wife and children,’ Hiccup said as he led the way to the hut, going on foot so it would be easier to find when in human form. ‘Argos might go there and he would target them. They'd be safer here.’

Shade and Dunestar

Shade gratefully regained his balance on the tiles with Flitt and Ebony's help, using his wings to claw his way up. "Thanks," he said, and followed them warily to the other side of the tile. He looked into the next room cautiously. Were those...pumpkins?

 

Dunestar eagerly hopped over to the others, following the exact path Shade had taken, minuc the near-falling experience. He stood behind the others, waiting for them to go first so he could see if it was safe or not. Call him a coward ,but he was just being cautious. And clever.

Ebony, Twins, Argos

The Nightfury purred and followed Shade. Sending a quick look back at Gusto she toyed with the thought of helping him out. An instant later her felinish instincts told her to chase the giant pumpkin rolling by and she did; going loop after loop after loop...

"Dunestar! Scamp! Help me catch it!" 

Each time she passed the opening to the next room however her expressive face distorted in fury.

"No help me K.ILL ITTTT!!!" She snarled savagely, tearing into the flesh of the giant squash.

Three seconds later the dragon would come back around, her normal dim witted cheery self.  "C'mon this is fun!"

She went by the doorway again. "D.IE YOU OVERGROWN VEGETABLE!!!!"

The pumpkin rolled a short distance further, just out of sight, before Ebony managed to rip through it's outer shell. With horrible splitting, and then splattering sounds pumpkin innards flew everywhere, and then all was silent. Ebony wandered back around, eyes wide and body covered in orange goo. "I k.illed the pumpkin." She said in the most serious way. "But I'm not sure why."

"We know why," The Thorston twins voices echoed throught chamber. Apparently they had made amends... or come to a mutual agreement to refrain from further injury until the maze was finished. "Because of what lies ahead. If the rest of you are as suseptable to the next dragonblood challange as Ebony, then you're only hope of survival rests in the talons of Meeeaaattttlllluuuuuggggg!!!"

 

 

 

Gronckle wings beat in an eerie, steady pace.

Click click click!

Outside the creature landed and remained exactly where it was.

Argos once more skid to a stop in the lair he had created for himself,

He grunted, coming down a little too forcefully onto his injured pincers. He switched to human, so focused he brushed right past Mabin's cage.

"Twilight is that little brat I sold nine years ago to the northern market battlerings." He whipped out the book and scribbled. "Flitt... is... Grimmels."

He ripped the two pages out of the book and pinned them to the wall.  Each one was a basic sketch of the dragon and human form with accessories, and all round the sketch were names of villages they had lived, been held prisoner in, or lost. "Village is dead, no one's looking for her. Right. There's not too many peg-legged white flightmare dragonbloods out there." He grit his teeth. "'Just as well no one's looking for her, one of Grimmel's makes that Flightmare strictly off-limits. At least I know where she is now." his cold eyes seemed to get that much colder. It would be nice to get out from under the Bewilderbeast's talon; knowing the whereabouts of two of only three things he cared about could help that.

Argos pulled a few more pages out of his book and pinned them to the wall. A silver phantom, two lightfury, dramillion, Quacken, Deathsong, Deathgripper, Grapplegrounder, Skrill, Thunderdrum and Razorcutter.

"Mareena and Shade are those were-siblings that went missing in Clove, I'm sure of it. This axe is about the style of their poachers. But those clowns... Ogma and Gusto. There was a supremecy about them that I've seen in other dragonbloods- from Dragons' Down. if I could take one alive, I might finally have a location.  Mabin, it seems I have a trip to Clove to plan. And to Grimborn, Snowstorm,  Mykines, and last but not least Berk."

He snapped his fingures. There was someone he needed to 'enlist' before Flame, or anyone else came looking for him.

Flitt watched Ebony in amusement. It was almost like watching the twins; playful one moment, attacking something the next. 

    With the Thorston's dire warning still echoing in the chamber, she stepped into the tunnel where the pumpkin had once rolled. Nothing sinister happened, so she crept towards the opening, making sure to stay against the wall and not walk in front of it in case a boulder flew out of there.

    Having failed to catch anyone with the bucket of water, a very wet Root came screeching past with an eel attached to his hood. He banged into her, knocking Flitt into the doorway, and continued his mad dash to who knew where.

    ...That's why we need Meatlug, Flitt thought, just as her pupils turned to slits. 

 

 

Mabin had to quickly pull back from the front of the cage when she heard wingbeats outside. The venom had worn off a little, allowing her just enough control to pick at the sliding latch. The gaps between the bars were too small for her paws to get through, but the spiked tip of her tail fit wonderfully. She didn't have much strength in her tail, but she had managed to move the slider half an inch.

    She watched the Deathgripper with interest while playing the dull, venom induced dragon. What was he doing? Why did he want them?

"Uhhhh... Flitt," Shaking pumpkin slime off her scales Ebony noticed the Flightmare's change of attitude. "Are you ok?"

Shade and Dunestar

Shade watched Ebony circle around and around curiously. Her mood swings were amusing but ominous at the same time. He took a step into the now empty ring, trying to avoid the puddles of pumpkin guts on the ground. He padded over to the entrance of the next room, staying a good distance away. "What is that?" he called back to the others.

 

Dunestar tried to join Ebony in chasing the pumpkin, but she was too fast and he was concerned he'd get smashed by the rolling squash. Instead, he kept putting a paw down and then backing up again every time she passed by. With a frustrated growl, he launched on top of the pumpkin the next time it went by, but was thrown off by the rolling motion. He would've been flattened the next time it came around save for Ebony destroying it. So much for being cautious.

Flitt growled and turned toward the Night Fury, her movements more animalistic that Dragonblood now. Claws clicking on the stone, she stalked forwards, muscles tended and ready to spring.

Eyes EVEN wider, Ebony skittered a few steps back toward Dunestar.

"No thank you. NO thAnK yOu. NO THANK YOU!" She hissed as Flitt stalked.

 

Rrrararrarrrarrraraah! Meatlug snorted. "Y'all that's dragonroot in the other room and it's gonna make you ccrrazy."

Another step... And another... So close to her prize-- wait what? Flitt blinked and shook her head, the scent of Dragonroot drifting away. With a yelp she sprang away and backed into the tunnel leading to the tile room.

Ruff and Tuff laughed mercilessly as Flitt regained control of herself.

"You should have seen the looks on your faces!" 

Scales still ruffled Ebony sent up a vicious look the Twins way- and a small ball of plasmid.

"OW! Jeez you too Ebony? That was a Toothless move. Nobody can take a joke anymore!"

"What do we do?" The fury made submissive gestures to Flitt, realizing it wasn't the Flightmare's fault. "They have Eat-everybody-and-be-a-Joyke-Weed in there."

‘There's nothing we can do, being as we'd just go crazy,’ Flitt said from where she was hiding behind Shade. ‘Meatlug though...’

If they want to made it out

If they want to made it out of that challenge right now they better do it quick as the angrily shouting from behind suggested Gusto making his way pass the eels and water way and about to get the wisp of the dragon roots. Which would sent him into a combination of "Ogma's hurt" berserk that Cutt got the worst end of it and the ectasity from the dragon nips. He may be wet and can't use electricity right now. But you dont want to has a Boss battle with Gusto into the long list of the challenge

After resting for a few minutes, I took off again, heading back the way I had came. I had no intenion of giving Argos any information. I flew the fastest I had ever flown, reaching the fog bank within two hours. I passed it, letting the mist sooth me. Once I was out of the fog bank, I flew to Snowstorm, and up as high as I could go. Once I had made it up, I let out a roar. "I AM THE ALPHA OF THIS ISLAND!" Slowly, very slowly, dragons began to come out of their hiding places, cowering in fear. One of them flew up to me, and I flew a bit lower so that we could have a conversation. "How do we know for sssshure that you arre thhhe alphha?"

"You know, because I am a Fury, the mightyest dragon in the world, and I am a were-dragon. A deadly were-dragon." I shifted to hybrid, as dragons all around me let out roars of surprise. After a few moments of shock, one of the dragons bowed. " All hail our alpha!" They roared, and all around them, the other dragon joined in. "ALL HAIL OUR ALPHA!"

Meatlug grunted, knowing what she hade to do. Lifting gently from the floor she weaved her way into the center of the next room.

"I got it! And there's a way out for me if I fly straight up." 

With that the dragonroot had been removed.

((Oh we are done with the maze? im not sure if you edit out the description for the next rounds but i guess that's what you did. That's okay with me))

"RAAAHHHHHH" Gusto, soaked wet, made his way to where Ebony and Flitt are. He looked rightfully angry but doesnt seem to be under the influence of dragonroots now that meatlug took it away. He paid thw others no mind and rush pass toward the exit with a warcry.

When the next day arrive, Teri can be found waiting for Flitt at the meeting point. Ready to scout for Argos

(@Chame: yeah I did get rid of the description. It's all still there if anyone wants to wrap up their time in the maze- next room, stepping stones with grimoras, (need pouch of salt in current room) room after filled with albino nightterrors, (loud noises, bright light) and last the room with Loki the Kyte (need dragon nip or he won't leave characters alone)

 

"Ooo a secret exit?" Ebony slinked after Gusto... letting him test the air for any remanent of dragonroot. She spotted a strange pouch of something in the corner. 

"Hm. Salt." Her nose told her.

"Wait no! That is a strictly Meatlug exit you're not supposed to-" Tuff watched Gusto fly out the way Meatlug had.

"Dang it I knew we shoulda set it up to latch behind her." His sister muttered.

"No! It can't end this way. There was so much more! The Grimoras, the Terrors, the Boarpit, and our evil overlord in Kyte form. What is the meaning of my life if I don't Loki these poor fools? Come back! COOMMMEEE BAAACCCKKK!"

"Oof you know how disappointed Loki will be if we come back empty-handed?"

"No my sister, I do not. It was a burden my dignity was never meant to bear."

"Dignity?? I'm just hoping our hides remain intact. That's one ornery dragon."

"And only one way to appease him is with dragonnip..."

They had the same idea at the same time. As if choreographed the twins pushed each other off the wall they were standing on to race through their own maze.

Cutt nodded. "I'll help with Ian's family. I'll be much more helpful in that-" She yawned "-Way" she gave Hiccup another smile. "Well I'm going to bed, it's getting really late" she glanced at the dark sky "hopefully we can figure everything out tomorrow" she shifted to full dragon and bounded over to where Hiccup had said they could sleep before heating up the ground and laying down.

...........

June, was lost. she had ended up leaving the group to try and find the leader. But while she was at it, she had gotten lost. She looked around at the semi quite tribe/clan. They wouldn't care for her. She frowned and practicly growled at a kid that had came near to her, frightening him off.  she stomped over to a tree with a small crevise and tried to get some sleep.

(If someone wants to make/use a tempary grouchy character to find June be my guess otherwise, she'll end up stuck around the log for a while)

(Okay, now I'm ready for the next day, although I'm not sure who's starting it...)
