Almighty Stone - Nightcaster

I open my eyes as the screaming begins. My ears start to burst with the ringing, like a thousand bells going off at once. I jump up, and hit my head against the wall. An eruption of flame and lightning bursts around me, and I lose all control. My eyes change, red as flame. My scales dull, and I surrender to the stone.

The ice lands erupt with lightning and flame, as the night brings its venom. This time it was different, though. I still had a grip on my senses. I couldn't control myself, but I still was myself. This somehow frightened my even more. I felt another presence beside me, a dark one. I felt its need to destroy, I felt its power as well. I landed, my claws scraping against the ice. Lightning began to creep through my scales, and melt the ice near me. The massive cave around me began to collapse. Luckily, I thought, this is only one of the many caves in the ice land. It was actually very small compared to the whole thing. Like a piece of dust on a mountain.

A boulder of ice came crashing down upon me, or rather us, but it melted before it could even get near. I tried to push the other force out of me, so that I could take control again, but it was like pushing a wall of stone. Stone. That seemed to trigger something, something that I should remember. But what was it....

I neared a small dragon, probably a Night Terror, and the air around me started to crackle with electricity. No! Stop! You can't do this! I screamed in my head, trying my hardest. The flame and lightning started to form tentacles of power, and it neared the Night Terror. I tried to push it out of me, but I couldn't. The dragon's eyes widened, and the jolt of power exploded just as the Night Terror took off into the air.

I figuratively sighed in relief, as I was released from the grips of the power that held me. I looked to where the Night Terror had escaped to, but the dragon had already flown far away.

Then, looking at the wreckage around me, I fell down into the warm water that I couldn't believe used to be ice. My eyes closed, and I fell asleep in what once had been a majestic cavern of ice.

Starflight the Night Fury (Nurse/Teacher/Mother)

Starflight heard a voice behind her. She turned to see her friend Trojan, an Armorwing, walking up behind her. He seemed rather angry. Had he heard the human? Starflight new his feelings about humans so she stretched out her wing to protect the human. 

"Why Trojan?"

Wonderwise signed

Wonderwise signed sadly

"There's no one did this" They said as they walked "Or rather, We all did it...after we hidden away in this place with the last stone. We're just lived in a borrowed time....I should have foreseen this to happened..."

They stop at the stone and gently touched it, still avoid the king's burning gaze

"The almighty stone" They begin "You see, it feed off the souls of the death but because of it we keep growing old but never reached the end like other mortals, don't get me wrong we can still be perished by other means that's not time but out there, it's different, war, disease, disaster, it brought death more than this safe heaven could ever live up

"and for that the stone will eventually reached it mortality for us, growing old, starved. Nothing may happened now, but soon the cracked will spread and the stone will start to cut out those it deemed worthless...and soon the entire thing will collapse and bring our history we made back to how it once was, you know what that means, sir?"

thousands of deaths and the others going savages, like how the dragons were before they found the stone.

Sonora(temporally) hopefully it's not too out of her character

First time might be her head playing her but for the second time, the death song definitely talking. She gulped, trying to processed the information it....he has given, but it's all still too much. but she will go along with that, if anything her adventous side seem to be full on energy, ready to explore the unknown and know more

"So a lost civilazation full of talking dragons" She muttered "wow"

Then, it was the death song turn to ask question. It still feel pretty weird to have a conversation with what she would consider an apex predator, even though he seems pretty nice and different from what she has heard about them so far. Sonora considered her answer, trying to replayed what has happened but....

"I don't know, it's all a blur to me, I guess I was going somewhere and then I got lost, then I saw the light and the next thing I know I fell down on top of you...does that make any sense?"okay the curiousity in her is getting pretty overwhelming, ignoring her fainting fear and lean in closer to the dragon, she asked "How are you even talking right now?"

Lyder He closed his eyes and

Lyder

He closed his eyes and listened to the tall that Wonderwise told him. About how the stone fed off of death. And how that if that crack were to spread, everything that they have build so hard to make, would disapper. Dragons would go savage. Just what his father had try to stop by taking the remainer of the dragons into hiding. And it would soon mean nothing.

 

He opened the eyes at the end of Wonderwise's tale. "Yes, I understand plenty," Lyder said with new softness. He reached out one of his talons and slowly touched the stone, soft enough that it wouldn't do any harm to it. And then brought his head back underneath him.

 

He looked back over at Wonderwise. "Is there anything we can do to slow this process or make it cease altogether?"

I could see the curiosity in the human's eyes as she told me how she got here, "sort of, this place is supposed to not have any cracks in it.." I said as I thought. The human leaned closer and asked with brimming curiosity, "you humans must not have kept good records of the war between our kind and your own" I said, pondering how much I should tell her.

I heard some more noises and the winey voice of a tired dragonet, "it's not safe here, most other dragons, especially the ones from the war, would not take to kindly to seeing a human" I said as I looked around for something to hid the human in. I saw my satchel on my back spines and pulled it off with my wing claw "in you go, unless you want to meet other less friendly dragons" I said as I left the large, compared to the human at least, bag on the ground for her to get in.

While I waited for her to get in I colleted my drawings and held them in my small arms.

Nightcaster / a random Night Terror

Nightcaster:

The ice fled from my scales as my eyes opened. The heat of the lightning in my scales burned through the frozen water, as I stood. The destruction that I had caused was horrible, pillars of ice impaled in the ground and trees torn apart. The  ground was warped from the shock of lightning, and silence echoed through the cavern. My tail scraped against the ground as I looked for shelter. I heard the wingbeats of other dragons.

 

Night Terror:

The Night Terror beats his wings furiously, trying to escape the destruction behind him. He heads to the Royal Palace.

When he lands on the doorstep, he cries, "Help! Help! Please, I need help!"

"What is it?" replies on of the castle guards.

"A dragon," panting, "attacked the uninhabited zone while I was out on a hunt! He tore the place apart with flame and lightning!"

The guard turns another soldier then turns back, "What did the dragon look like?"

"He was massive! His scales shot lightning and flame at everything, and his eyes.... His eyes were red as ruby! He must have been the size of a Bewilderbeast! His claws were fifty feet long!" the Night Terror recalls, obviously exaggerating.

The guard tries not to laugh at the impossibility of that, they would know if a dragon of that power and size lived anywhere, "I'll," almost laughs, "tell the king."

((It's kind of unavoidable

((It's kind of unavoidable since this rp is lore based characterd driven(In my idea, I may be wrong, story driven rp is like in "this rp people band together and have to fight evils" but mine is more like here's how the world then your character is in them how will it played out?), especially since I even encourage the characters to not all stuck at the same scene all at once, a lot of stuff happened separately, Wolfnur discovering the sancuary and saved by Starflight then have a conflict with the guard dragon, Nightcaster has his own stuff going on, Wonderwise and Lyder discovering the mortality of their world(which I can assure you will be linked to the humans), Sonora and Amrahn's meeting is kinda less conflicted more friendly than Wolfnur. I even feel like there's a lot going on and a lot potential for Wolfnur's side of the story! You are in this weird different world and yet you fall back into being a fugitive again without knowing why. Yes there's more going on and some may seem more intense than the other but that's not mean something is being cast aside as long as it's keep developing, eventually that story might lead into something bigger! I actually pretty nervous about the active-ness of the human characters since they're the main force to drive around stories, they are the conflict of the story after all. I'm sorry if it make you feel that way though ))

 

EDIT: and like mech said you can just start by writing the reaction of the whole things, talking dragon, a night fury seems nice but the armorwing seem to have a problem with you, do you make a break for it or stick around and speak up etc. I don't thing it would feel force in that scenario(I mean I kinda sent Trojan your way to give three of you something to write)

Wolfnor

The black dragon concealed him from the new-comer. "Why, Trojan?" she asked when 'Trojan' ordered her to get away from him.

Wolfnor's mind was racing. This was no time for a master plan or witty remarks. He did the one thing he was best at- run.

Making a break for it, he sprinted towards a gutter. He would be perfectly able to slip between the bars once there, but it was getting there in the first place that would be a problem.

Sonora and Wonderwide

Sonora

She didn't understand much what the death song meant, she shruged "Must be, Never heard of any of that but then again I'm not much of a reader"

The death song then paused as though he has heard something, she heard it too, there must be another dragons nearby, combined with what the dragon said next and the human-size satchel thrown in front of her, Sonora became pretty alarmed. This dragon hasn't eat her yet and seems decent so far but jumping into the bag of the talking counterpart of the man-eating beast she just met might be a step too far, even though deep down her instinct told her to trust him based of little she has been able to make out of the look on his face. Still got to make sure.

"And you helping me, why?"

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

Wonderwise

Wonderwise closed their eyes, this question was inevitable 

"To feed the stone, ones must bring upon deaths" They said ""It's impossible to make the process cease all together but perhaps if we are able to sated it appetite, we won't have to worry about this for another thousand years, but there's a problem to this, sir. The stone was able to gave us power within the sanctuary for this long due to the countless loss in the war, including human's"

Before Trojan could answer the boy started sprinting. She had to follow him! Who knows what kind of dragon he could run into? Sure took off, half flying half running towards him. She didn't want to scare the boy but if she didn't get to him then Trojan would.

The human looked up at me and asked why I was helping her, "because I am curious and I have never actually seen a human before, I have lived in this sanctuary my whole life and up until now it has been completely sealed off. I want to know what lies outside, what you humans are like, and much more" I replied, my eyes peering curiously at the human.

I heard more noise, "now hurry, I don't know if there is any penalty to being with a human and I don't want to find out" I told her.

Lyder

He listen to Wonderware talk. "So what you say, we will need to sacrifice as many lives as we did during the great war?" He can softly, trying to make it sound okay. But in real life, this was not gooe. There were too many lives in the war that were lost to make up for again. And that would be a lot of lives lots and blood shed.

A Random Guard

Guard:

The guard waits outside the gate until the king is done talking to Wonderwise. This apparent theory of a "Monster Dragon" was not important enough to disturb the king from a talk with his wizard. He would inform the king, though, in case there was any flame under the smoke.

Trojan the Armorwing

Starflight protected the human behind her wings.

 "Why Trojan?" She asked. Trojan sighed, but before he could answer the human made a run for it towards a gutter. Starflight immediately took off after him and Trojan followed. However, Trojan wasn't much of a fast flyer so either Starflight will catch him or he'll get away. He can't allow a human roaming around, he must catch him.

Wonderwise and Sonora

Wonderwise

Knowing Lyder ever since he was born, Wonderwise know what the king must reallly feel right now

"To ensure the years long of prosperity and no deaths, yes but that alone might no even be enough, as I have mentioned, we have human then. Doubling the number of our own might not even be comperable to several human's souls. Fortunately, we don't necessary have to feed the stone all at once like before. As long as it's fed regularly it should keep the stone going

"I know it's go against our way of doing things, sir, we have grown accostum to this comfort. But this is to ensure our survival, It's your place to keep this civilization going. Maybe we can een start off with the criminals we have in the jail"Wonderwise urged, there hasn't been any death penelty in the sanctuary especially since most of the crime was only related to thivaries, corrptions, some minor conflict and harassment and nothing more but it might have to change.

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

Sonora

"Hopefully I won't get dissect and experiment on out of curiousity" Sonora signed but step into the bag anyway, it was uncommon but she still have heard of some viking doing this to animals and dragons for the sake of....something, what an unholy weirdos. But maybe this is better than facing a bunches of angry war-she-doesn't-even-know-about-veterans

"I''m Sonora, by the way"

"Don't worry, I am not that curious" I told the human. She climbed into the satchel and introduced herself, "Amrahn" I replied quickly, pulling the flap over the top of the satchel and putting it on my back, making sure to be careful of my passenger.

Our timing could not have been better for a band of roudy Nadder dragonets went crashing by as their parents chased after them. I nodded to the passing parents who pain no attention to me. I sighed and took off with all my stuff. It was a twenty minute flight to my house from the palace so it was roughly only ten minutes of flying to get to my home now.

I landed outside my door and entered my single story home that sat on a mostly treed proporty. I locked the door behind myself and set the satchel on the ground and opened the flap, "it's safe now, I don't live with anyone and due to my dietary habits of eating eels I rarely have any visitors" I told Sonora. My home was nice, the walls were a nice light blue color and I had numerous book cases that held books that were larger than any human book. On one wall there was a ddask that had paper and several pens and pencils on it. Where there was not a book case or some random creation leaning against the wall there was a window or a picture that I had drawn with great skill.

I remembered I had important plans in my arms, "excuse me, I have to put these somewhere safe, try not to knock over anything" I said as I went into another room, I figured the human was harmless so I did not worry about her doing anything damaging as I put my drawings away.

Lyder

Even the prisoners were part of this kingsom, and should be punished for their deeds. But they were still dragon. They shouldn't have to suffer death just because of a few small bad deeads. But for the greater good, it should be done.

 

"When should we be gain this procees?" Lyder spoke to Wonderwise. "Will we be able to wait for awhile or should we begin immediately?"

Both went after him in a panic, his skinny legs no match for either of their wing-power. Starflight was faster, Trojan left in the dust. Wolfnor had misjudged both the distance and his own speed by a mile, and was soon under the shadow of Starflight.

Sonora and Wonderwide

Wonderwise

Wonderwise signed "I understand if you need more time to think about it" they began to walked toward the door, ending the discussion "With the small crack like this we don't know when will those effect begin to resurface it could be weeks, days or hours from now. Perhaps in the mean time we both might be able to come up with the better options, any thing we got right now would result in servere public reaction, regarless I acvice you to keep this in the dark sir, we don't need anyone to panic just yet"

They opened their door, only to find a dragon outside, judging from his outfit he's one of the guard, someone in the throne room must have direct him to this office with the absent of the king. It's not unusal for anyone to bring the problem to the king by themselves at this day and aged, especially since the king would even walked around the sanctuary himself to meet his subjects, however being an old dragon of tradition, Wonderwise couldn't help but scold the young guard slightly(especially since they don't know if this guard have heard any thing important through the door or not) "What is it do you want, lad? can't you inform the head guard instead?"

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

Sonora

Once she got out of the bag, Sonora fell over a little but gotten to her feet fairy quick, the bag was swaying when he flew and she couldn't see anything"I gotta say" She started "That's definitely not a way to ride a dragon"

But her sickness gone away quick once she marveled all over the interier of Amrahn's house (or den?), it's more similar to human's in the way Sonora first suspected when she got here; these dragons were different they have pupose, culture knowledge but at the same time it's so much different from the viking's house, still  the personality shown through the decorations and works in this house reminded her of some human she know back home

"Nice place" She said, keep her impressed from being too obnoxious "not really my style though, I not really a sitting around in the room type"

Still curious, she decided to pick up one of the too-big book and open it "Oh hey what do you know I can read this" She read "Basic guide into engineering, boring, give me something you folks write about human" She began to go through books(since books are a lot harmless than some weird invention on the wall right?)place some down when she's not finding what she want, knocked some down a long the way.

"I was here to inform the king of something that a Night Terror said. The Night Terror asked specifically for me to inform the king of it." he replied, but saw that Wonderwise might want to know more, "The Night Terror said something about an apparent 'Monster Dragon' that destroyed part of the uninhabited zone. I don't have any proof for this happening, but I can tell you who the Night Terror was and-" he trailed off, realizing that Wonderwise probably had more important things to attend to.

Amrahn-Death Song-Engineer/sorcerer

While I put away my drawings in tubes for them to be transported easily I heard the human talking, complimented my home, she mentioned riding dragons and I found the comment odd.

When I came back I found her going through my books, "oi, I told you not to touch anything" I said as I moved quickly to her and used my magic to move her to one side and begin picking up my books, most of them were special to me for they had come from my mother and my father, the ones from my father were even more special because of his recent passing. A moment of sadness flashed over my face as I began to put my books back.

The last book I put away was a book on advanced magic and had been written by my father, Celestine, and Wonderwise. as I used my magic to lift it up a letter fell out and drifted to the ground. "Huh?" I said when I noticed the letter, I moved it to read and was shocked at who had written it, my father:

To Amrahn,

Wonderwise and I have worked with the stone so long we never thought this would happen but it is, the stone is dy,ing. We know how to keep it alive but it is to dark for such a peaceful place so we kept it as our dark secret.

I detailed more about it in my journal, it is a sad secret to keep but I found a way to save the sanctuary, one that does not need so much death. I kept my studies from Wonder though, he might not like what would be needed of him and a few others.

find my journal, it is in the library that Wonderwise and I shared, look for a book titled "fertility and caring for hatchlings" I hid my journal their, I figured Wonder would never think to pick up and read that book

This is all I can tell you my son, I love you and I am sorry for leaving you, the stone needs souls and it should last long enough for you to find this with my soul.

you loving father

~Celestine

Tears dripped from my eyes as I tried to comprehend what the letter had said, it was to much for me to comprehend at the moment so I just sat their looking at the letter.

Wonderwise

Wonderwise frowned "If there's just some maniac lurking in the wood you should be telling your superior instead, it could be just some teens messing around" the old snow wraith shook their head and began to walk away but then stop short when something pops up in their mind "When you said monster, do you mean something like mindless beast?"

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

Sonora

Sonora suddenly went stiffed and next minute she found herself being moved to the side, her mind's fuzzed a bit, it reminded her vividly of the strange laps of memory she felt about how she got to this mysterious place "Woah...did you do something, this felt weird can dragon here do this now?"

But the dragon ignored her and busied himself with the books, going through all her reckus "Look sorry okay,this has been a weird day and I may act like a terrible house guest there but I need some answers okay? It has been pretty wild for me"

Amrahn stopped and staring at something in his claws, Sonora tried to search for his face but surprised to see a tear dwelling up, It alarmed her seeing a dragon crying for the first time"Oh thor, I really did upset you, didn't I? I'm sorry I didn't mean to"

"I wouldn't know for sure, because I wasn't there. But, I do know who the Night Terror was." the guard replied, "But from what he said, the dragon definitally wasn't in controll of himself. Or if he was, he was really angry."

The guard waited for a few moments, "I'll go and tell the captain about it then."

The guard bows to Wonderwise and waits for him to walk away.

((ack, sorry, I completely spaced on it being my turn))

I looked over at the human as she as she rambled a bit and then asked if she had upset me, "no.. it was not you.." I paused as I looked down at the letter again, "it's from my father.. late father.. at it raises so many more question that it answers currently" I set the letter down on the ground so that Sonora could read it.

I thought on its contents as I let my tears dry, It confused me, the stone needs souls? the great stone? and what could possibly be in his journal that would cause him to hide it from Wonderwise? these questions bounced around in my head like scattered lights in a fog, one thing was clear though, I needed to find that journal.

Wolfnor

"Hide!" Starlight hissed.

Wolfnor more than happily obeyed. He continued his break for the gutter, finally getting to safety beneath the tightly packed stones and metal bars, cowering in the shadows. Gushing water blocked out any noise from outside, leaving him time to think. Should he stay and see what happens, or use the massive plumbing system he's now in to escape to somewhere a bit quieter, and with less drama.

Starlight had been nice to him so far. Even if she didn't know his name yet, and the fact that she was a talking dragon, and all he has done is scream, almost throw up, and run away. There was this sense of protection about her.

Ah! That's right. Now with time to calm down, he remembered what kind of dragon she was- Night Fury. He had only seen drawings of them from Berk traders, and heard stories of the only known and trained one over there.

So he waited there. Maybe Starlight would come find him after she deals with Trojan. Or the other way round. Either way, he didn't really have anything better to do.

"I--I don't get it" Sonora finally said face full with confusion, this all sound so alien to her "What does it mean the stone is dying, what stone?"

Wonderwise

Wonderwise turned to look at Lyder with concern, could this be what they're afraid of, could the sign start happening this early. The guard began to rambling all by himself and said "I will go tell captain about it then"

"Please do, report to Hala. if it turned out to be true and not just some crazy teenagers we have to make sure that dragon's being contained" with that they send the guard off

"The stone is what allows us to speak, use magic, live as long as we do, every thing that makes this place how it is is because of that stone" I started sadly, "if it d,ies, the young, weak, and old will perish and those that are strong enough to survive will become mere husks of themselves and will go feral like the dragons you are probably used to" I said hauntingly.

"Celestine, my father gave me this book only a few days before he passed" I said, levitating the book of advanced magic, "and I never thought to open it seeing how it was the last thing he gave me, I guess I must thank you for disreguarding my words" said as I sniffed a bit and chuckled a little, "never thought I would ever meet a human and my first encouter with one messes up my books" I shook my head as I tried to clear the sadness the little bit of humor.

"I need to find that journal!" I said looking at Sonora and the many not so safe contraptions I had laying about, "seeing how I don't trust you stay out of my things I am going to bring you along, second pair of eyes might be useful" I said, I began to put the remainder of my books away, "give a shout when you are situated in the satchel" I told her.

Lyder

He listened to the conversation that happened between one of the castle guards and Wonderwise. Mostly they spoke of a rogue dragon that was living out in the uninhabited zone near the outside of the kingsom. But after the guard left, Lyder walked nearer to Wonder.

 

"It's probably nothing," I said, not wanting to believe the news. "Night terrors and terrible terrors always exaggerat things to make themselves look more important." He wanted to believe this himself, but if there was such a dragon, ethereal kingdom could be in trouble.

Wonderwise and Sonora

Wonderwise

They signed "Let's hope it is as what you said, sir" A few minute after he bid the king farewell and clawed back into his office, they both have a lot to think about

 

Sonora

Sonora tried to follow along the story, she got the censored of it but it all still sound so....out there, so a stone make dragons smart and talk and it's alive for some reason because it can di.e and it will take the dragons with it....

"Uhhhh your welcome"  She said uncertainly when Amrahn talked about how thanks to her messing up with his book he came acrossed his late father's letter. He then gestured for her to come back to the satchel, explaining that it would be unwise to leave her alone with his thing, gee skeptical much?

"Hold on, hold on" She stepped back slightly, gave the satchel and warried look "Don't you have something else you can use? you can do magic right or do those stuff with the....things" making things "can't you like, make me look like a dragon or something? I don't want to be in here as much as you don't want me to when there's so much out there, you can't think you're the only one who want to learn more about stuff and being in the satchel isn't going to do me much about that" plus to heck with motion sickness she going to get after this. To make it more convincing she gave the dragon her best puppy eyes.

and she needs to remind her self that she needs to go home too, as much as today has gotten much more interesting, she feel like she's about to stepping into something too deep.

I looked at Sonora when she did not want to go in to the satchel and listened to her plea to not be carried around in the satchel. I thought and was about to denounce her suggestion of making her look like a dragon when I remembered a spell I had "preserved", "Disgusing spells are not exactly legal here, most were even removed from books, but I managed to 'preserve' one" I looked at her and then had a small book from the top shelf across the room float to me.

"It is not exactly the most comfortable spell, you will actually take the form of a dragon for a short while, I've used it once or twice when I was younger and I will say you will ache a bit after you revert back to your original form but other than that no one would be able to tell that you were a human" I told Sonora, paging through the book and finding the loose page I had hidden there, "I would have to make you a Death Song for a reliable story and you would have act like a youngling, walk, talk, fly a bit, but be a bit of a nuisence" I informed her, "you alright with all that?" I asked her, reading over the page a few times.

"OK." the guard replied, and hurried of to Hala. He found Hala soon enough and told the story the Night Terror had told him.

 

Nightcaster

I opened my eyes. Frozen in a crystal ice, wings held to the ground. The heat in my scales slowly melted the cage around me, and created a pool of pure water around me. I pulled myself to my feet, and shook the water off my scales. I streached my wings out, and opened my mouth for a second before returning to my original position. I looked around, seeing the frozen remains of the forest that had once been there.

Nightcaster. I heard the voice, echoing through the world of ice. It was a whisper, ghost-like. I felt the screaming begin.

Trojan the Armorwing

((Sorry, I was really tired this week and my brain cells weren't working. I think I feel a little bit less tired. Also, I don't think it's like Trojan to just fight Starflight.))

 

Starflight, being the faster dragon, caught up to the boy and protected him as he made his to the gutter. Trojan landed on top of it and growled. "Why did you let them get away!?" He said and look at Starflight.

Sonora and Hala

Sonora

"Oh yeah, Let's do it!"She's both excited and slightly nervous, mostly excited though, just...hopefully she can turned back into human without any frill or the urge to eat fresh eels.

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

Hala

Hala listenned to the report. like Wonderwise, Hala didn't imediatally getting work up over it thinking it's anything more than a reckless teen but still this is her field of work, and Hala's good at her job wether it's rounding up the drunks or sending bad guys to jails.

"Alright, send a couple of guards their way and someone fast a small incase they need to request backups"  She's said with her gruff voice

The Guard / Nightcaster!

The guard followed Hala's orders, and gathered up a group of ten dragons. Three Rumblehorns, two Monsterous Nightmares, four Deadly Nadders, and one Triple Stryke. He located the Night Terror that had informed him of this "monster" and the dragon told the guards where he had found it. They soon found the destruction that lay there.

 

Nightcaster:

The wingbeats overhead told me of dragons coming closer. The screaming was taking  hold, and I knew I couldn't resist it much longer. I looked to the air, and spotted the ten dragons.

"Go away! Before it's to late!" I shouted, lightning sparking around me.

"What?" one of the dragons shouted back.

"Go away! I can't control it!" I shouted, hoping that they would understand. My eyes started to burn, and my scales started to dull. I felt the power erupt within me. Then it took hold.

Lightning erupted all around me, setting the air aflame. The ice melted, crashing down upon the world. Then the storm began.

 

Cold as night, it burned within me. The lightning created a skeleton of electricity around me, and exploded in a wave of light and flame. The cavern around me began to collapse.

 

The Guards:

"Fly away!" The guard shouted, in the explosion of light. The whole cavern was begining to collapse, and something was starting to take hold of them. They heard a screaming in the air, and knew that it was almost too late. Too late to escape.

The group of dragons started to fly, but something was taking hold of their minds and a power was starting to pull them in.

 

Nightcaster:

No! Stop it! I shouted at myself. I struggled against the burning force inside of me, trying to push it back. I screamed, and the lightning spun out of all control. It struck me in the head, sending me down into the cold mixture of water and ice. The torrent of shadow started to take my vision.

 

The Guards:

The eruption of power stopped almost instantly, but the guards didn't even think about going back to investigate. Something was wrong there. It was truly a monster.

The Triple Stryke, called Spine, could fly faster than them and was already on her way to the city to inform Hala of the happenings. They flew away to the sound the ice behind them shattering and collapsing in on itself.

The boy quickly obeyed her and climbed into the gutter. As she turned to face Trojan he said " Why did you let him get away?!" 

"Because he hasn't done anything wrong." She said calmly.

Sonora excitidly answered and was alright with all that I had told her. With that I began to read the spell aloud, it was in an ancient and untrasnlateable tongue but I knew how to say it. The words flowed from my mouth as my Death Song voice added a little muisical lilt to it.

I finished the spell and looked down at Sonora, watching to see how the transformation went, to everyone else it would look quick but I knew that internally it would feel like ages.

Sonora, Hala, Wonderwise and their pupil

Sonora

It's quicker than she has thought it would take. So far she doesn't feel so much different so she start testing the feel and movement of her new body, she blinked, clenched and unclenched her hands...claws? She turned her head around, look down to find her claw feet, turned around to look at her wings, tried moving her face and found her ears....now a deathsong's frills moving then she laughed, excitingly then the so her laugh almost sound like a crying. She still sounds like her human self but it felt so weird to move the jaws now. she test her walk, she must have look like a baby death song right now since she still feel her own height, even so it's still a little challenging to balance on this new anatomy, could she fly? She then fell over, the floor's shaking slightly and she swore she heard something exploded "what was that?"

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

Wonderwise

Wonderwise closed the door behind them and signed, using the claws to rub their eyes. 

"Lavi, I know you're in here"

Suddenly at the ceiling of the room, the death song materailized and dropped down, guilty look on his face, the apprentice scratched his head a little before he asked "Eh heh heh how long did you know that I was....?"

"Of course I know...and Lyder probably too but there's no point in calling you out, I wish you could just stop doing something so childish"

Lavi signed" Sorry sir, it's just....I deserved to know this too, don't I?  I help you studied the stone and I mean I am the one who first saw it cracking so I thought there's no need keeping it a secret to me and all that....." He trailed off, the old sorceror doesn't seem to care, to deep in the concern of the stone itself

"what are we going to do" Wonderwise said softly, the vulnerability in their voice caugth Lavi off guard. The young apprentice considered his answer "if it's up to me sir....if I have no choice but to sacrificing people then I wouldn't make it known that we are the one killing the dragons..."

Wonderwised open their eys and look at the hybrid as though he just has grew another head

"like pin it on accident, disastor or some...criminals" Lavi continued " but this is just in the situation where we don't have another choice, I just don't see it will do us any good to put ourselves in the bad light and don't even come out and say it's for the stone....even if we do...they will just blame us even more for something we couldn't stop---"

He was interrupted by the low distanced rumble and a tiny shake. the light flickered slightly...and then nothing...Lavi was about to say something when Wonderwise suddenly shooted up toward the stone

"Sir?"

Wonderwise grimmanced before they spreaded their wings and flew toward the window, before they left for good, they turned around and ordered Lavi " You stay here and keep your eyes on the stone!"

and just like the Wonderwise left, heading toward the scene. Leaving Lavi openned his mouth agape in confussion, but soon enough as he turned around to do just what he was told to he then soon spot the reason of Wonderwise's sudden departure

it's tiny, barely noticable...crack.....next to the larger one he saw before

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

Hala

Hala felt the shaking from the explosion too and just be in time to see a flash of light in the distance. It's marely a second after that Spine arrived, the female guard was quick to get to the point, telling Hala everything. Hala too, make a quick orders

"Squad 2 clear the citizen out from the inhabitant zone, if that night terror saw it first then there's got to be someone near the area as well, this included the mine area , Squad 3 keep the city under controled, don't make anyone panic and keep everyone away from the scene Squad 4 and 5 followed me to the scene, I will handle this" the old chief's eyes burning, she's ready to head to the battle if needs to or perhaps save that dragon from himself, took off her coat, she spread her wings and took flight

No! Get out of my head! I tried to push whatever was controlling me out, but it held firm. I could sense the ice around me melting and shattering into thousands of pieces. The screaming burned through my head, making it hard to focus. Then, all of the sudden, it stopped. I lay on the ground, limp and unmoving. I tried to catch my breath, but my lungs couldn't expand. Everything felt numb, and my scales were as cold as ice. I felt a small release of pressure, and I began breathing again. Soon, though, I had fell into unconciousness.

I watched as Sonora tested out her new self and foud it rather cute. I looked around after the faint boom, "don't know, could be linked to the stone which mean we need to know what was so important that my father needed to keep it silent" I said as I made Sonora levitate up onto my back, "now, you are my neighbors daughter, you can use your name since no one from the palace has ever visited me, just remember you need to act childish to keep up your disguise.. oh and if you find yourself reverting, tell me, changing back is slower that becoming so that is a plus" I told Sonora as I put on my empty satchel.

"Use your tail to hold onto one of my back spines.. ready?" I asked.
