(oops missed that bit with Dunestar)

"Ahh stop it!" The Stormcutter jumped, whipping his tail out of Dunestars grasp and curling it securely around himself. Being such a big dragon, the motion rocked the whole boat. His stern gaze narrowed. "Don't touch my tail."

 

 

Pumpernickel deftly lead the way to an ancient tree that wasn't quite oak, but massive. She pushed through some undergrowth and her voice became echoey "I found this place not long after you dragonbloods left. It's cold, but it's safe, and none of my kind know about it."

 

 

"Look wherever you all want to look," June snorted, put out that a human girl had to ride with her. (assuming Scamp is now in the air and catching up to Gusto and Ogma) "As long as it's on Dragonblood Island."

"Um... from what I know, Flame doesn't like being... dragged anywhere against her own will. I also have a hunch that she won't come willingly eaither." I said in response to the Dragonblood that said something about an extraction and getting Flame to come back.

Scamp

Scamp follows Gusto and Ogma, struggling to keep up properly with two humans on his back. He frowns, confused by what's going on, but he doesn't speak up, preferring to save his breath for flying.

Mabin glanced around then ducked into the space the Stinger had climbed into. It WAS cold, and she shivered from it. Not that she was already shivering from the cold wind when flying.

    She and the dragon were in a hollow tree, dark except for faint slits of light creeping in through cracks. 'Are you sure this is safe?' Mabin asked, poking the tree, which crumbled a little.

"We will see about that, or....since you seemed to know her so much, why don't you do the honor instead? Honestly this whole thing is such a drag and a waste of time" Gusto grumbled

"Me? Know her well? Hardly. I've just seen her sneaking around a few times. I mean, there was this one time where I made a deal with her to get some food... but that doesn't matter right now. And do what "honour"? And how is this a waste of time? I thought you were her friends." All of my rambling was just me stalling, trying to come up with a plan. If only the group would get lost... Maybe I could get us lost. "Also, didn't you guys say something about Dragonblood island having storms? Maybe we should follow that one. It might get us closer." I said, pointing at a gathering storm that would knock any dragon out of the sky.

Scamp growls nervously as he spots the storm clouds. "Maybe we should just avoid that.. I don't feel like crashing" he says, slowing down a bit.

Shade, MAreena, Dunestar, Kilorn

Shade smirked as Dunestar was scolded and answered Twilight. "It's alright, don't we all?" He gave her a grin and said, "From my dismal experience, you get used to it. As long as you don't get sea sick. Which shouldn't happen since we don't get sick when we fly." He shrugged.

 

Dunestar pouted, "What was I supposed to do, land on the wood?" He perked up, "You can touch my tail!" He brushed his spiky tail in the stormcutter's face and then bounded away to annoy Shade, deciding everything had been fixed.

 

Mareena tagged along with the others as they argued about where to go. She rolled her eyes. "We said we were going to Dragonblood Island, so that's where we'll go first. Worst case scenario, she isn't there. Then we'll check wherever Sierra thinks next," she said blandly, gliding over a wind current. She didn't realize she'd said the girl's name wrong. She dropped back a little to fly next to Scamp. "Hey, want me to take June? You look a little tired." She shifted to dragon form, her body expanding five times it's human length. 

 

Kilorn sat down on the edge of the boat, leaning his chin on his hands. What was he doing here? He wasn't a dragon hybrid thing! He sighed. Curiousity killed the cat, a voice whispered in his head.

Twilight and Scamp

Twilight smiles and nods. "Yeah, you're right. Thanks, Shade." She looks out over the ocean and her mind wonders back to her dream. She shudders involuntary. 'Why do my dreams always feel so real? They.. they're not prophetic, are they?' she thinks.
---
Scamp nods gratefully to Mareena. "Thanks. Fair warning though, she's rude" he answers. He flies a little closer to the silver phantom, hoping June will understand and be able to switch.

Ian, Pumpernickel

(@Maz: congrats Maz! He looks adorable! <3)

(@Mare and Chame: maybe team Flame and Argos are going together for now, and then breaking off when they near the island? Would that work? June switching rides pending)

(@Ginger: ooo I like the idea of Twilight's dreams being prophetic sometimes :D)

 

~Ian MK~

Ian threw his head back. "Pfft! Bleh! Pleh!"

He had the misfortune of yawning just as the sandwraith decided to share his spikey tail.

Dunestar ran, and with surprise the Stormcutter caught himself giving chase. He stopped, visually fighting the urge in starts forward and back like a dog who really wants to play.

"Why do I feel like I have to chase him?"" he muttered to the other dragonbloods, too intent on Dunestar to observe Twilight's reflective mood.

 

 

~DBI, Pumpernickel~

"It is for me."

There was ice in the speedstinger's tone more chilling than the cavernous room beneath the tree. In the light of hundreds of bio-luminescent mushrooms, shadows crept out from behind every root and rock. Four speedstingers surrounded Mabin, and awaited Pumpernickel's command.

"Whether it is for you or not depends on how fast you can talk. Who are you, where did you get that sword, why are your eyes all strange, and who are you running from?"

"Guys?" Recieving no response, Teri turned around only to find that no one has actually follow him. It was a brief moment of irritated panic but soon Teri's ears picked up a light conversation from down below and he saw his group coversing with the Flame retriving group. Make sense since he did says that they would go on the general same direction. Dont want to lose more face, Teri only tsked and fly quietly above and letting the rest of his crew conversing for now

 

Gusto wasn't actually listen to the context of Sasha's rambling but the length of it and it seemed to has worked on Sasha's favor " Hah! Friend! I AM her friend, of course the same way I am Friend with that one legged "chief" and his annoying lap dogs. We are so close I want to slit their throat in their sleep! and Gosh! You're annoying! Fine take the lead or whatever I don't care if you are so sure of what you're talking about! Go!" Gusto even slow down to fall behind Scramp's back and using his head to nudge the Scuttleclaw pack with one human rider forward.

‘Oh come on,’ Mabin moaned in Dragontongue when the speed stingers appeared. She switched the sword to her left hand because she was getting cramp in the other. ‘I'm Mabin,’ she said, deciding to tell the truth. ‘I stole this sword--’ she waved it then quickly lowered it when four stingers came too close for comfort, ‘--from someone who had me trapped. I'm a Dragonblood, which is why my eyes are dragon eyes and why I have wings, and I'm running from a Deathgripper Dragonblood called Argos.’

Zima and Bullseye

(@Maz: Aw! So cute! <3)

 

Bullseye narrowed his eyes as Ebony insulted him, he bared his teeth, his pupils turning to slits, he couldn't go back to his pack, he didn't even want to! He couldn't believe he thought this brat was worth helping!

"You have no right to tell me what to do! I'm not going anywhere!" He roared, in a rage. "If you think you can just insult me and get away with it, think again! I will kill this stupid human and I'll take you down with it! And don't expect me to help you next time, I'd rather watch you die! If you even make it out of here alive."

Hardly in control of his own actions or words, and blinded by his own fury, he lunged at Ebony, aiming straight for her throat.

 

(Sorry if I missed anything, I had 30 new to catch up on. Also, @Lissa, I would rather not have this huge fight scene with Bullseye and Ebony, but I have to stick to his personality, and considering that, he probably won't give up)

Root, still humming a tuneless tune, kicked the other Fury's head and scrambled back up on Ebony's back, where he crouched with fists raised. ‘Don't you dare hurt my friends.’

Ebony, Pumpernickel, June

(@Ninja: the nadder Argos met and asked about Mabin was supposed to be Spike. If Spikes' busy it can be just a wild Nadder

@Maz; hope I'm doing ok with June, if you want changes feel free to let me know :3

@Lark: ok! Ebony's not a great fighter so it makes sense if he wins- just without getting Root)

 

June, AF

June slid from Scamp to the Silver Phantom's back, happy to get away from Sasha. The dragon in a human's body couldn't stand all these dragonbloods or dragons she was around, but she really didn't like Sasha. Sasha was human, Sasha was sneaky, and Sasha was lying. First she's super interested in getting Flame back, then she's saying she knows all these things about her and that she won't come back, and now she was saying she didn't hardly know her at all. June wondered just what kind of a deal Sasha and Flame struck up for food. She wondered what Sasha wasn't saying. Not that she particularly cared but it was something to occupy her mind for the long trip.

 

 

Pumpernickel, DBI

The Speedstinger gave Mabin a hard stare- one twitch of her stingerless tail was all it would take to send her pack into action. Slowly she lowered it.

"She's telling the truth."

The others relaxed and began picking at each other.

"Scar," Red growled, "You were barely hiding!"

"Spike was no better!"

"Zip it Skid!" Spike shot back. "You were so busy trying to impress Red you left yourself open to attack!"

"Like you woulda noticed."

"Impress what now?" Red looked fiercely to Skid.

"All of you get a grip!" Pumpernickel snapped. "She's being HUNTED by Argos. Where do you think that leaves us?"

...

"Uhhh..."

"In the same tree with her?"

"Yes, Scar, in the same tree."

"Hey let's sting her and pay homage, maybe he'll leave us alone."

Pumpernickel had thought of that. If her pack had suggested it a week ago she wouldn't have bat an eye. But things can happen in a week that change everything we think we know.

"No, for one I won't go begging for mercy to the likes of that thing. For another he doesn't know what mercy is, and finally, Mabin told us the truth, I told her she'd be safe her. That's my word and I'm sticking to it."

"What about Argos?"

"We'll stay here where he can't find us and take our revenge by not letting him take her. Yes! take her, and this nasty black sword." She looked to it hatefully. "Bet he's missing THAT just about now. In fact we'll go further; when the coast is clear we'll find a dragon who can melt the blade down to nothing so he'll never get it back!"

"Huzzah!" The foursome raised their tails.

 

 

 

 

Ebony, Berk:

Now Ebony expected some nasty (and deserving) response back, but she hadn't pegged the dragon who had thought he was rescuing her to be just as willing to end her. Root kicked out and pushed Bullseye a bit off his original course but he was still coming at her, and now with cat-like reflexes lashing out at Root. Ebony twisted, putting her paw over Root to shield him from a deadly blow for a human.

Snap!

At the same time Bullseye's teeth only just caught the side of her neck as she twisted, which was very lucky. She pulled out of their grasp leaving a small patch of her skin in his jaws.

Making sure Root was securely on her back she dropped into a hasty retreat, eyes wild. She wasn't a very fast fury and she had a feeling Bullseye wasn't going to let them just get away.

At least knowing the territory was on her side. She knew lots of good places to hide things she didn't want other dragons getting- and one such place was not so very far. It was an old well that had gone dry. She couldn't fit down it but a human could, and she knew (because most of the 'things' she'd hide from the other dragons were alive) that there was a tunnel within the well leading to the south beach not far from the docks.

The fury dumped Root into the well, hoping he would get the picture and duck into the tunnel before Bullseye could shoot a fireball into it, then turned to defend.

"Oooo you mean Fury," She hissed from the ground, holding up the paw he had hit. Her head was low and ears practically sealed to her bleeding neck, while her whole body crouched submissively.  "I'm sorry, leave me alone."

Twilight, Scamp, Nora and Jason

Twilight snaps out of her thoughts as the boat sways a bit more than usual. She blinks and shakes her head, quickly pushing all thoughts of dreams from her mind for now. She looks around, then grins and relaxes as she sees Ian, clearly fighting the urge to chase Dunestar. Seeing the look of confusion on the stormcutter's face, she shifts to hybrid form. "Dragon instincts, nothing to worry about" she tells him.

 

Scamp hesitates a few seconds longer, a little confused about the situation, then flies on towards Dragonblood Island. He keeps glancing back at the others and at Sasha as he flies.

Jason follows at the back of the combined group. He eyes the storm up ahead warily. 'Normally I would shift to hybrid to keep my instincts in check so I don't endanger the others.. but that makes flying, especially in bad weather, much harder. Just have to focus' he thinks.

 

Nora wanders through the village, surprised at how relaxed she is. 'Maybe this really is a good place to call home' she thinks. She stumbles across an old looking well. She's about to move on, when Ebony appears out of nowhere, shoves Root down it, and turns around, looking both frightend and angry. "Ebony? What's going on?" Nora asks fearfully, instinctively shifting to hybrid form mid-sentence.

(Not too sure what's happening with Argos group)

 

Flitt trailed after the others in dragon form. She watched Sasha with a wary eye, and kept out of Jason's way. She didn't trust either of them.

    Aaand now there was a storm brewing in the direction they were headed.

 

Root landed on his feet and looked up at the circle of light above him. He could hear growls and snarls from up there, unfriendly even to someone who didn't understand Dragontongue.

    He looked along the tunnel, grinned, and ran down it even though he could h.ardly see. He was sure he'd hidden some Dragon Root somewhere here...

 

Mabin looked from Stinger to Stinger as they talked, bouncing words back and forth like a pinball. She hugged the sword to her when the leader mentioned melting the blade. ‘No! I like it,’ she said in Dragontongue.

Zima and Bullseye

Bullseye missed the Fury's throat as she twisted, but managed to sink his teeth into the side of her neck with ferocious growl. He had expected the Night Fury to fight back, but instead, she pulled away and shot off back towards the island. Bullseye wouldn't let her escape, he chased her down, the envirement slowing him down as he didn't know the place well, he had only just gotten there a few days ago. But that wouldn't stop him. The Fury dropped the human in an old well, but Bullseye was too focused on her to care. He flung his wings out in front of him in a sudden stop as the Night Fury landed on the ground, flattening her ears and apoligizing. Bullseye didn't like being called mean, but his pupils dilated at the apology and submission. He saw another shapeshifter nearby, she seemed to be asking what was going on. Bullseye looked down at Ebony. But I am mean, aren't I? A tiny voice echoed in the back of his mind. And deep down he knew, he had overreacted, if she hadn't had good enough reflexes, he would have killed her. But, really, he didn't want to do that, he had just gotten so mad... He shook his head and snorted, turning away and flying off back to the forest. He landed in the green grass, remembering some of the fights he had with the Furies back in his pack, most never went anywhere near his cave there, he was known to be aggressive and lash out if you said one wrong word. But Bullseye couldn't help it, the smallest things just exesperated him. But she deserved it. He thought firmly, trying to convince himself.

 

Zima heard growling and snarling form nearby, she recognized Ebony's voice. She took to the air and flew in the direction of the sounds, stopping at an old well where Nora and Ebony were. She saw a red-eyed Night Fury flying off towards the forest. Zima flew down and landed near the two, noticing blood on Ebony's neck.

"Ebony." She slowly walked closer. "Are.. Are you okay?"

Teri grinned at Jason and

Teri grinned at Jason and seemed enthusiastic to share his knowledge about flying "The trick is to keep steady and  to not be panic. Holding your wing out and keep your pace but if there're sudden pull of wind you can't fight just drop and let it carry you out, don't fight it or you will lose all your strength and it will be more dangerous--"

"Yeah yeah just shut up" Gusto mumbled, he and Ogma doesn't seemed to have trouble with the storm, both being thunder dragons in a way.

"That's our way out, we will go separate way from now" Teri told the Flame team

Jason nods to Teri. "Thanks" he says, a little surprised that Teri's offering him help.

As Teri calls that the two groups are splitting up now, Scamp flies over to Mareena. "Thanks for carrying June. I can take her back now" he says cheerfully.

Jason nods to the group looking for Flame, then he looks at Teri. "Where are we looking first?" he asks.

(@all: hi! @Ninja: I'll just make it a random Nadder that Argos stopped, who'd seen Mabin at the waterfall. He didn't harm the nadder, btw)

 

DBI

Pumpernickel sneered. "Keeping the sword was never part of the deal, Mabin. I'll do with it what I wa-"

All five stingers froze as something large landed in the boughs above them. It became deathly silent in the cold treehollow, each ear strained, every nose twitching to find out who, or what, was out there.

 

Leaves of the mysterious oak-like tree were so thick that even in the midst of a tempest, there were places under them that stayed dry. Argos shook the water off his wings and re-adjusted some of his new armor. It was overall working quite well, thanks to a carefully thought out design. Loss of manauverability was minimum, and change in speed almost unnoticable. He looked out over the gail, commanding clicks on the tip of his tongue.

The dragon sighed and curled his tail in, resigning to wait the storm out. So much for Berk; he really thought he'd have a chance to move forward in his plan. But Mabin just had to steal his sword! Theiving ungrateful dragonblood, he'd done her absolutely no harm and this was his reward.

Making himself comfortable, where he was able to see from every angle below and most above, a restless feeling crept over him. Last seen Mabin was at the waterfall, and since then he hadn't been able to pick her trail up again, she could be anywhere, even very close. I really should click again, he thought. But if I do, and attract the attention of the speedstingers I'll have to find somehwere else to wait the storm out.

 

AF

June quickly jumped from Mareena to the Scuttleclaw's back, paying no heed to how her sudden, extra weight might feel. They were getting closer! A hazy feeling that was neither angry or sad surfaced. Was this... excitement? To see Banana and make things right?

It was quickly quelled by the daunting task of figuring out how to make things right.

 

 

Berk

Ebony's attention flew from the red-eyed nightfury abandoning the scene to the Lightfury Dragonblood approaching. The sight of a white wings coming at her from the corner of her eye made her jump and turn with the ugliest look of hate, until she realized it was Zima. Immediately she licked back her snarl but kept her crouch.

"Ebony, are you ok?"

The nightfury stared a long time before answering, calming down. "I got smacked." She licked four very deep groves in her paw and wherever her tongue could reach the trail of blood flowing from the side of her neck. "That nasty fury was trying to eat Root and I don't move fast enough- but he's gone now and I'm ok and DO NOT need to see the dragon doctor." 

Hobbling on three legs Ebony peeked over the side of the well. "Whoman? -Root is a whoman by the way I thought he was a monster earlier but turned out he wasn't- Root whoman? Where did you go?"

She called a few more times.

"He must have gone down the tunnel." Her eyes returned to their normal size... though they twitched as tiny blades of grass brushed against her paw.. "Let's go to the beach where he will come out."

 

 

MK

Twilight smiled up and explained he was just getting in touch with his dragon instincts and that was nothing to worry about. 

Ian sure hoped so. Moments later he crawled, tail wagging, toward Dunestar and pounced. The entire front end of the ship jumped out of the water while the other end sank.

"No horsing around on the ship! Take it to the sky." Eret gripped the wheel tightly.

Zima and Bullseye

Zima jumped as Ebony turned around with a look of pure hatred. There was a small glint of sadness in Zima's eyes, but it mostly faded when Ebony's snarl vanished. She answered her question, saying she was okay and she 'definitely did not need to go to the dragon doctor.' Zima was relieved to hear this. She spread her wings to follow Ebony to the beach, where Root was apparently gonna come out, she wasn't sure who that was though.
"Well, um... I'm sorry if I startled you..." Zima's words came out in a guilty whisper.

(In case I didn't make it clear, Zima is currently in hybrid form and she's speaking in dragontongue (I'm on mobile again) Just trying to prevent confusion here)

(@Lissa, and everyone, really: I have a doctor dragon! Could annoy Ebony with them XD)

 

Mabin was ready to argue with Stinger until branches cracked above their hiding place. They all froze, listening intently for any tiny sound above the gale. If that was Argos, she... They were in trouble.

    She glanced around and spotted some moss on the wall. Pulling a face, she ripped some of the wet plant off and stuffed it in her ears, hoping there were no bugs in it. As far as she knew, she was still under the control of the venom and any called from that Deathgripper could spell disaster.

 

 

Root ran out from the tunnel and into a beach. He hadn't been able to find the Dragon Root, maybe he shouldn't have told the twins about it, but he had found some leeches. He waved a leech covered hand at Ebony when she appeared in the sky. ‘I've found leeches!’

(@Lark: ahh I forgot again! Ok! let's say Ebony saw the white wings and after that situation with Bullseye reacted

@Flitt: sure! Ebony, like the real Ebony is not a fan of the vet xD)

Berk

"That's ok Zima" Ebony trotted, then decided flying felt better. She broke away from the earth and glanced back to see if Nora was also following. "I'm sorry for growling at you, for some reason I thought you were Selene for a second."

When they reached the beach Root waved up.

"Eeeewww! What is that leeches?!?"  

She landed, sat on her haunches, grabbed his hand with her good paw and began pulling leeches off with her lips, spitting them back out. "Can't leave this whoman alone for a second."

 

 

 

DBI

Pumpernickel watched, perlexed as Mabin stuffed moss in her ears. She looked around her group and wondered if they should all put moss in their ears, until they heard the unmistakable click of a deathgripper. The alpha speedstinger's eyes shot from Mabin to the exit repeatedly. Was he... calling for her? There were questions on all the other stinger's faces but a dire look from Pumpernickel kept their mouths shut.

 

Argos clicked the command to come, listening as intently as the dragons below him were. A gust of wind blew the faintest scent into his nostrils. The eyes snapped; the tail curled and he turned to the left, where the trunk of the tree sprawled into amaze of roots buried in the understory.  There had definitely been speedstingers through here in the last hour... in fact, he though he could smell a den nearbye. But after the speedstingers something else came through. Something... muddled, indistinguishable, as it it had recently been through water. He crawled throught the boughs, trying to pinpoint the scent as his clicks grew louder.

‘Aww,’ he'd liked those leeches. Root pulled one off his arm and stuck it to Ebony.

    A light grey Fury with red edges to her wings swooped down and homed in on Ebony. Without even asking she examined the gash on the Night Fury's neck then tried to examine the injured paw. ‘These need cleaning.’ She said. ‘And hi, I'm Orto.’

 

Oh no... She could faintly hear clicking that sounded very much like Argos. Mabin backed away from the entrance and raised the sword.

"Why?" she asked Root.

Busy trying to get it off, the fury didn't realize until to late who was looking at her injuries.

Oh no not her! How did she even KNOW?

Ebony pulled away from Orto and slinked behind Zima to hide. "I cleaned them already they're all better. I don't need medecine or to go with you to... the place."

'The place' being a dragon's equivalent of the doctor's office.

Root snickered.

    Orto huffed. 'Fine, I won't take you to you-know-where, but that foot of yours needs bandaging. You're getting sand in it!' She began to follow Ebony, but found Root was holdng her back. He had grabbed ahold of the chain attached to her ear. 'Hey! Careful with that. It took ages to make.'

 

(Put Orto's form up on my first post.)

Almost answering to Jason's

Almost answering to Jason's question, an Island appeared in their vision once they flew through the cloud "That one" Teri answer

and headed there before landing on the shore

-------

Gusto's group reached the Dragonblood Island a few minute later but once Gusto and Ogma did, their posture made it cleared that they'd stay true to their earlier word; let Sasha handle it. Right now they (mainly Gusto) crossed his arm and look elsewhere with a huff

 

 

((Not sure if it'd be too OP or convinent to have Argos group found Argos hideout right away but I'm not sure what to do in the meantime if they didn't find it right away either....any ideas? (I mean Argos' away from his hideout anyway)))

"Well... I guesss I could lead." "We should split up.  I can take a group of cold-weather dragons to the other side of the fog bank, and everyone else can look on Dragonblood island." 

((@everyone: The winter/fall is the busy season for me, so I'm not gonna be as active, so if my characters need to do something, and I've been gone for a bit, feel free to move them along! I'll try and tell you guys when I'll be away though. Sound good?))

no time to rp, but @Chame that's fine with me! in an rp it's probably best to just keep things moving. Maybe they checked a few other islands first or somthing and are now here. As for team Mykines they technically should take at least a week, maybe two getting to Mykines and back, but again, since this is an rp I'll just stick with all the other team's timelines to keep confusion down. i.e. they're almost to Mykines now.

@Flitt- Orto can take Ebony to 'the place' for some treatment. She might go kicking and screaming but that'd be funny I think xD. your choice!

Three things can happen with Argos; A. he's going to escape, B. he'll get taken prisoner, C. he's k.illed. What do you guys lean towards?

@Ninja: It's good to be busy! Hope you're having fun ^^ Also if you're gone a lot, can you tell someone what the plot is for Sasha and Flame? So we know where and what Sasha and Flame are planning to go and do, if it is for good or for evil. otherwise all the characters following Sasha will stop following her or just not be used at all.

Once more gone for most the day! Will be back later!

Zima and Bullseye

(@Lissa and also @Flitt: I don't think Zima will let Orto take Ebony anywhere, she doesn't trust strangers much)

 

Zima smiled at Ebony's response, she didn't know who Selene was but by the look of hatred Ebony had given her she assumed it wasn't anyone good. They landed on the beach, finding a boy with leeches on his hand, apparently he liked them, but Ebony pulled them off. The boy stuck a leech to the Night Fury. Zima walked over to help her get it off when another Fury arrived and started inspecting Ebony's wounds, saying they needed to be cleaned. Zima backed away from Orto, she said her name was and shifted to dragon form as Ebony hid behind her, saying she didn't need to go to 'the place.' Orto was trying to get past Root to further inspect Ebony, she assumed.

"I-I'm sure Ebony will be fine." Zima was crouched protectively in front of her friend. "Thanks for the help, but we're okay, really."

She didn't even know who this Fury was and she wasn't about to let her take Ebony anywhere, especially if she didn't want to go.

(@Ninja: actually I liked not knowing where you were going with this. intrigue is mah fav :D Only suggested letting someone know enough to keep the plot going so it wouldn't simmer out :3)

 

Zima shifted and crouched, talking kindly to Orto but firmly declining help. Ebony's posture perked when she saw that the Lightfury was on her side. Orto wouldn't dare drag her back to the place now!

 

Then the fury felt guilty.

As much as she didn't like being poked and prodded by the doctor dragon she did always make her feel better. Eventually. And she had always admired the long chain thingy in her ear which she wanted so bad to play with. That and the golden round ticking thing Orto had around her neck it had such a nice sound.

"Wellll... I do actually like my paw, it would be sad to chew it off later if it doesn't get better right."

With a grateful look to Zima she reluctantly crawled back and offered her paw for a real cleaning. "Who many ages? I mean; how? And why did it take so long to make something so small?"

Root stayed attached to chain, then started singing. ‘ChaaIIInnnNnnn, keeps ussss togetherrrr!’

    ‘Oh, shut up,’ Orto told the boy. ‘It took... A long time. I started it when I was back home, which was years ago, over a thousand. Maybe 1,300 years ago... ROOT LOOPS BE QUIET.’ She smacked him on the head with her wing, which made no difference whatsoever.

"That's a lot of ages."

When Orto didn't take her paw and clean it immediately she started having secong thoughts.

"Root Loops is a very strange whoman." Ebony watched him sing. "I think maybe he hurt his head once."

‘I think more than once.’ Orto FINALLY got away from Root and smacked him with her tail. ‘Hands off, human. Now... Foot?’

((@Ninja Maybe pm only the one you think might accidentally get in a way of your plan if they didn't know?))

 

Out of the gang...maybe only June is the only none cold-weather dragon...as Scuttleclaws live in cold climate, so does Skrill and Thunderdrum. Gusto and Ogma looked at each other then back at Flame and is actually started to look skeptic

"Hang on, why fog bank? the brat is on this island, isn't she?"

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

((Sorry if I might skip around a little))

((@Lissa as for Argos as in right now I think I lean toward him escaping))

The first island isn't the one, neither the second one where they ran into a group of  territorial smokebreaths

but the third...

The land was barren, made of rocks and already looks empty not too different from dark deep when they land. It could as well be some sort of a volcano.

Teri's tripple stryke ears tried to pick up any sound but the island is eeriely silent

"Hmm let's atleast go through this one quickly. maybe it'd still have something" He said and begin to investigate

Sasha, Spike

((The Dragonblood Spike is talking about is Mabin. If she's in human form or something, let me know and I'll fix it)

((Aslo, Scamp is gingerforums character, right?))

"I'm... not sure. I think she's on the island, but she could be past the fog bank. I've ran into her several times in the past, and one time, I managed to get her to talk. Apparently she needs to go past the fog bank for something, but I don't know what. This seems like a good chance for her to do it."

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

Spike flew around, looking for another rabbit to eat. While he was flying, he stumbled upon a were-dragon. He remembered what Flame had told him to do, so he carefully approached the were-dragon. "I was told to come find other were-dragons by a were-dragon named Flame. Are you the one I'm looking for?"

Scamp, Nora and Jason

Scamp lands and sighs in relief, happy for the chance to rest. As Sasha and June dismount, he shakes himself. "Can't we rest for a minute? At least untill the storm passes?" he asks tiredly.

 

Nora follows the two furies as they fly off to find Root. She hangs back a bit once they find him, pulling a face at the sight of the leeches. Once Orto arrives, Nora moves a little further away. She still stays somewhat close though, as she doesn't really want to go off on her own.

 

Jason sniffs around the small barren island, trying to pick up a scent. A sudden change in wind direction brings the scent of dragon's blood to his nose. His pupils turn to slits and his tusks partly come out. Without so much as a grunt to the rest of the group, he takes off, tracking the scent with a hungry, feral glint in his eyes. After a few seconds, he returns to his senses and shakes his head, snorts and comes to a halt. 'No! I don't need to hunt. Especially not now that I'm with other Dragonbloods' he thinks firmly. He hovers for a few moments, still fighting back his instincts, then he turns and flies back to the others. "There's an injured or dead dragon off that way, higher up the cliff. Maybe it's a clue" he says.

(@ninja: Mabin is in hybrid form, hiding inside a tree protected by speed stingers and Argos is in the branches above, so I don't think Spike would have been able to get there without Argos noticing. And he wouldv'e given Mabin's hiding spot away.)

Ebony, Ian, Argos

Berk:

Ebony stretched the paw back out, turning her head and closing her eyes. Was she a baby about getting treated? Yes, yes she was.

 

 

DBI: (Just re-read your post, Ninja, sorry I misunderstood. would you like me to edit this out?)

The Deathgripper's attention split between the brush and a Nadder on the approach. Irritated, he thought about telling it to bug off with a stream of acid.

"I was told to come find other were-dragons by a were-dragon named Flame. Are you the one I'm looking for?" It asked.

"Probably." He continued sniffing and clicking. Had he heard movement in or around the tree? Hard to tell over the wind and Nadder's beating wings. "We did have a mutual agreement."

 

 

Mykines:

After Eret had told them to stop rocking the boat, Ian decided to spend some time in flight practice. After all, those dragon instincts were kicking in, maybe some of the instincts for flight would show up too. 

They didn't. But he did get some more air time in and even had a chance to try and catch fish with his talons.

"Oiii!" Eret growled when he was thrown off his feet as a tired but ridiculously proud Stormcutter crashed into the side of the ship. He crawled up, in his talons a fairly small arctic char. "Crazy dragonblood," he spat under his breath, checking the side of his ship for damage. He was beginning to regret volunteering. Grr curse that Hiccup and his incredible skills with forced volunteerism.

"It might not mean much to you lot, but this is my first arctic char. Dragon or not I'll savor this moment and rub it in Montgomery's face forever!" 

He tossed the fish delightedly into the air, caught it in his teeth and swallowed it raw and still wriggling.

Ian's eyes bulged. REALLY? He'd just spent an exhausting half hour in the air without a hint of instinct and the second he lands he swallows a raw fish.

 

*this would usually take a few days, and maybe it did or whatever, but I'm going to skip to Mykines and stay on the same timeline as the others hunting Argos and searching for Flame*

 

Eret checked the map and tested the wind. To most a land mass so distant would be overlooked; but he was a seasoned sailor. "Dragonbloods and Crew, Mykines ahead!"

Spike remembered that if it was a Deathgripper were-dragon, to ask it's name. "What is your name?"  Spike asks, taking a few steps back.

Argos, June

Argos finally turned to face the dragon. "Jason." He said, curious what the Nadder would do or say next.

 

(@Ginger sorry I missed the first part of your last post! Here's June)

June gladly jumped from Scamps back. He might have been tired but she'd been sitting for hours.

"Sure rest all you want what do I care? I'm out of here. I never signed up to actually help you look for your friend, I'm looking for mine."

And with that she tromped off into the woods hoping Banana hadn't moved on.
