well take your time, you don't have to write if you don't know what to do yet but I'm trying to direct the story back toward you too, if you want to do anything with those smugglers or describing the place or even controling the dragon surrounding your side of the story, feel free!))

 

Edit: oh yeah and Wolfnur being tortured just a dream thing, you don't have to make him suffer for real

"When we have a chance, we will find this suffering human" I told the flustered Sonora, "you an me both" I said with a bit of a sigh. "About the only place, and I say that lightly, that this other human can be is with the black market but from what I have heard from the random banter with some of the head guards is that it is mobile and is never in the same place for to long" I told Sonora.

Using my wing I gestured for her to follow me as I walked towards my kitchen where I used my magic to start preparing a eel stew.

((to stear us towards Wutend, you could have Sonora periodically get images as to where he is))

Wolfnor

((here we go))

 

Wolfnor had been sitting in an empty stone room for hours now- it felt more like days. Every now-and-then there would be muffled voices coming from one of the bare walls, arguing and shouting, but they would leave again.

There was no door in his cell. No windows. Only a faint ball of light blue light floating on a ceiling a dozen-or-so metres above him. What worried him most is that he wasn’t getting hungry or thirsty or anything- the moment he thought he felt one of his normal human bodily needs show up, something would suppress or solve it. It felt like the room had some kind of presence in it keeping him alive.

Most importantly he was unbelievably bored. The light wasn’t strong enough (and also too far away) to be any use for shadow-puppets, someone must have taken his pack, and the walls were far too smooth to be climbed.

Then a spectral image of a Flightmare materialized in the centre of the room. He let out a very un-manly scream and almost crawled half way up the wall despite its lack of handholds. “Well turn my mist on me and call me a sheep” the projection of the dragon laughed. “You beasts actually found a way to survive all this time”

“Why?” Wolfnor cried out in exasperation. “Why do you have to make today even weirder, and talking, dragons, magic? Giant city in an iceberg? Appearing? You? Me, how am I so important? What do you want?” he wailed, yelling the last sentence.

“Quite a talkative one, now, aren’t you?” she noted. “But… you seem quite distressed”

Wolfnor gave her the biggest ‘You think?’ face he could muster. “Am I now?”

“Why is that?”

Throwing his hands in the air, he paced from one side of the room to the other for about a minute- and it was no small room. “What do you mean, why? Do you think this is all normal? With the talking and the magic and the things?”

“Are they not on the surface?”

He was almost in tears from bewilderment. “No! Obviously not!”

“Do tell” the Flightmare encouraged, a hint of curiosity in her voice now.

“Well for starters dragons don’t talk! And magic isn’t a thing, either- which, might I add just for the sake of it, is not okay down here either! Residue? Hybrids? All-Maker? Paralysis charms? I’m getting visions, to, by the way, is that another normal thing down here that should not and does not happen up there?”

The dragon was having a hard time not laughing. Wolfnor wasn’t finished, though. “And another thing- kidnapping is not nice! Especially when you literally stab me in the back and drag me off- I’m just gonna have a wild guess here and say that that was a Stinging Speed? Speed Stinger? Fast Stab-whatever it’s called? Actually, don’t care. A little more on my many, many problems with everything that is happening right now- who is Lyder? Who are you? Why am I here? Where-”

Rolling her eyes, a puff of orange shot out of a wall. Wolfnor was silenced, and the dragon disappeared again. Once more, some voices started up outside of his cell. Pressing his ear to the wall, he could make out a little of what was being said.

“Humans in the sanctuary… stone is cracked…”

“And… glacier’s opened…”

“Find the other one… visited the palace… with the Deathsong sorcerer”

“Alive?”

“Preferably”

Sonora

((it's a little weird if I had dream right back to back especailly now that I'm still awake---when I said I I meant Sonora---so this probably had to dragged on a little bit longer, maybe do something else hopefully wouldn't be too out of character for them))

"Black market, huh" Sonora followed the deathsong "I kinda get the impression that you guys are peaceful bunches, well aside from the old vengeful vetaran and the murderous stone, but you got what I'm saying, no deaths for years, you all pretty love yourselves....I thought you people would be more" She paused "lack of ill-intention....compared to human, at least that's what I'm being told out there, our version of dragons"

((that makes sense, yeah we can go a little while before Sonora gets another vision))

I chuckled at Sonora's reply, "very few deaths.. every civilization, from us dragons to other humans civilizations, have individuals that are less than clean and preform less than legal actions" I told her as I began mixing in the vegetables and eels into the stew along with some meat stock. I said a short word and the coals beneath the pot lit immediately. Using my tail I stirred the pot with a spoon as I returned my full attention to Sonora.

What an Irony Sonora thought grimly, linking it to the dragon hunters who caught and sell dragons. Now Dragon do human trafficing appearently, such thought made Sonora giggle fearfully to herself, not deciding to share such information about how (some) dragons are being treated outside.

I heard Sonora's giggle and found the action strange, I didn't know humans made such strange noises. I heard some bubbling and looked over the edge of the pot and found the stew bubblking slightly, I stired it some more and took a taste, it needed a little bit of spice so I put a couple dashes of powdered peppers.

With a few final stirs I hovered a couple bowls over to me to start serving myself and Sonora. It was here that I realized that the bowl I had was to large for my human friend. I turned around and began to look through my cubbords for a smaller bowl, unknowingly when I turned my tail nearly hit Sonora in the head. "Do you by chance have any utensils with you because I don't have anything that is your size" I told Sonora as I returned to face her.

((Whelp, gonna get in a

((Whelp, gonna get in a second character))

Name: Adehte

Gender: Male

Age: 34

Opinion on dragons: Friendly, but never had the time or apparent skill to train them.

Appearance: An unhealthy and wiry man with brown hair and green eyes, he has standard common-class attire plus a simple steel dagger for defence.

Further Description: He’s been feeling the effects of the stone for a bit longer, and a bit stronger than everyone else- it calls to him constantly, demanding souls. This has driven him a bit insane, and is bent on giving it what it wants- and ultimately will give it his own.

 

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

 

How long had the jewel been calling now? Weeks? Months? No, time didn’t matter- the only time to be measured was in life- souls of men and dragons. It needs life for life, the sacrifice of ending many early to prolong countless others. A fair trade, yes?

But at last I had found it; the way into the sanctuary, to the gem, to the broken ice. It showed me glimpses of the wonders below- a city the size of a mountain, frozen walls making the sky, reptilians who could alter the very elements. These were images of gods.

I had only to reach them. Getting to divinity in the sky was impossible, but below? Trivial! A rope, winch, and a helping hand was only optional.

The entrance was only an hours boat from the nearest island; and it was apparent that someone had already found the place. A boat wreck lay around and a little bit on the iceberg, barely any of it intact. Oh well- anyone who accidently or intentionally found this would be of no concern or problem to me.

Now actually looking into the crack, I had a slight concern that the rope wasn’t long enough. But it would have to do.

((honestly cant be bothered writing the actual getting down rope stuff so I’ll skip to when he’s in town pestering dragons for their souls or whatnot later on))

Sonora and Wonderwise

Sonora

"nope, I only carry around knive, rope and a waterbag" Sonora said "well the last one could be of use, but you know when it come to this kind of this us barbarian can settle with everything" She gave him a grin, dinning with her hand is not an alienate concept for her, and if it's the stuff like soup she remembered using leaf once, although it wasn't a very hot soup.

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

Wonderwise

Wonderwise didn't sleep last night, the old dragons spend their time thinking over things, occasionnally go through his own research. They know their king would be in the same possition and soon they would need answer if Lyder would take action but for now they're more interest in the razorwhip hybrid, perhaps the  youngling is the key to save the sanctuary.  There's also another thing too.

The stone contacted them, usually they would meditate to find answer themselves but this time the stone came to him, screaming in his mind. It show him the parcular vision, a female human, that alone would already made their blood boiled, these hidious barbaric creatures but it didn't end here the stone also show her in their room, right next to the stone itself, along with Lavi and the engineer.

So the first thing wonderwise did in the morning is shoving their pupil up against the wall and demanding answer

"I didn't know, okay!? She must have been glamoured or maybe she's not even a human at all and your stress just made this all up!" Lavi cried, remarkbly even after the stone continously bombard him with miserable headache as a punishment the spiteful student managed to lie perfectly, though why he wasn't sure himself. Wonderwise let him go, sastified or not they left imediatly, left the young dragon shuddered in fear and anger.

They head straight to Hala's headquarter, and to their surprise the quarter seem to be already active. The guard flying among getting to their assigned post, the damaged from yesturday was still present. Hala's in the middle of it all, grim expression as always

"Knew you would show up, but the youngling is the less of our concern now" She said " One of my guard report human being sighted in zone two, though we lost sight of it. there's also a multiple report of dragons losing their mind, Wonderwise whatever you have just spill it out"

"The engineer's house. Celestial's offspring" Wonderwise said avoiding answer her question "send your dragons there as well"

"what for, we can't just---hey where are you going!?"

Wonderwise already flew off again, straight toward Amrahn's hourse.

 

((at first I didn't want to move the plot into this direction but I forgot the stone could contact the favourite so it would seem weird if the stone knew and didn't snitch them out))

I shrugged a draconic shrug when Sonora said she had no utensils and I guessed she was just going to use her hands to eat, "I guess you can just share my bowl as we eat" I suggested as I used my tail to lift Sonora up onto my table. Normaly I would have used my magic but that was occupied with collecting a bit of warm water with some soap in it. I brought the two little orbs of water and soap over to her and had them run up and down her hands and arms to clean them, "there you go, nice and clean" I said as I turned my attention to serving up a bowl of eel stew and getting a spoon.

I levitated the full bowl of steaming stew and a spoon ((looks more like a stragiht ladel, spoodle)) to the table and infront of Sonora, "want the first bite?" I asked. I thought about what I had learned about humans and their barbaric ways and compared them to Sonora. I found that many of them did not line up with the human before me.

"I feel like a baby" Sonora grumbled after being soaked then tease"Here your don't have to pretend I'm your neigthbor's little kid hatchling all the time--this is so good though" She added once her mouth's filled with food "Oh my, am I eating magic right now?"

Their interaction was however interrupted by the knocks on the door. Sonora sat straigth up in alarm.

"So..." She whispered " about me coming to get you if there's someone on the door..."

I chuckled, "it's a good habit to wash before eating and no you are not eating magic" I said with a smile as she ate. My smile dropped when I heard someone at the door, "hide" I whispered to her, I friend a couple spoonfuls of so before going to the door, the stench of eel was usually enough to drive others away.
I walked over to the door and opened it, making sure my body took up the entirety of it, "can I help you?" I asked before I looked at the dragon before me.

Sonora and Wonderwide

Sonora tried to find a place to hide, it wasn't a difficut task considering all the dragons furniture are bigger than her body but it's still stressful for that short seconds, the cupcoard it is, she decided.

As Amrahn to open the door to greet Wonderwise, the old dragon made a face slightly at the smell, but remain professional. They have calmed themselves down knowing that he couldn't confront the Engineer directly.

"Greetings, Amrahn, I see that I've interrupted your breakfast" Said Wonderwise "I was in the neighbor and decided to come by for a visit, Lavi's been speaking about you yesturday, and I heard you've taken another project for the king, would it be too much of a trouble to have this old bone rest inside for a couple of minutes?"

Wonderwise was the one at the door and I kept on my face a simple and welcoming smile, hiding what I knew. "It is no worry, I was almost finished with my bowl of stew, yeah you can come in but I do suggest you to avoid the kitchen I have what remains of a more potent and spicy eel on the cutting board" I said as I turned to make way for the smaller Snow Wraith. As I turned to lead him to my library/workshop my tail whiped back and forth normaly to keep me balanced, however the little motion had a little magic in it and it sent all of the books I had out onto nearby shelves and made the little amber bed melt and fly into the trash, concealing what I had been doing

Wonderwise followed the deathsong inside, through crack Sonora could see a white and green snow wraith---so that's Wonderwise "Still such a nice lovely place" Wonderwise complimented as he looked around as if to admire the house. He watch the books flew toward the shelf when Amrahnn cleaned up the mess with his magic. "Lavi mentioned that you came to grab a book from my office yesturday, I assumed you must be working on something important, the railroad, I presume?"

I smiled at Wonderwise's compliment, he did not give them out very much so I became slightly more suspicious of his actual intent at my home. "It helps to be good friends with some of the best architects around" I commented as I came to stop in the library and faced Wonderwise, "Lavi is correct about my presence in the library you and my father shared, well the book was for a neighbor actually it was on special care for hatchlings, I remembered seeing it a while ago last time I was there and got it for her" I told Wonderwise, "speaking of the railroad, they way I have designed this new one should make it out last many generations of dragons before it will even need a service" I said with pride in my design, I hoped that I did not do anything in the slight change of topic to make the old dragon suspicious.

Gyro the snafflefang, Wonderwise the sorcerror

Gyro was doing his usual favourite morning routine; collecting weird rocks! It a must do for a geologist like him, right? Although this morning was a little unusual consider there're guards who blocking his usual paths, saying something about the explosions and human on the loose. The whispers began to spread through out that small area but no one have made anything official about it yet. Honestly, Gyro thought it was pretty scary, even though he's never seen a human before but he can't let that stop him from the task at hand! what if the explosion damaged his stone?

It was challenging but somehow the chubby snafflefang managed to bypassed all the seeing eyes of the authority and move toward his favourite place to look for rocks at the outskirt area, there're glacier shards everywhere and he began to worry he would fine anything today

that's when Gyro looked up and saw someone dangling down the rope, he's heard about how unsafe it is to be that close to the edge eventhough Gyro has done it a couple of time before in his search. Still the good-nature dragon decided to call out "Hello? what are you doing up there, Are you looking for rocks as well? are there any good rocks there? you shouldn't be too close to the edge!"

It was unfortunate for this fat dragon that he didn't know he was talking to the human, while he recognized that the shape looked different from anything he's seen before he still figure that he must he some sort of weird flightless dragon who needs help, "Don't worry! I will catch you if you fall!"

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

Wonderwise paused at Amrahn respond, realized that if they keep up with this it will be only drag on longer, they can't afford to wast time if they wish to fish something from the young engineer, different approach it is then "Listen, lad" Wonderwise began "As much as I would love to talk about this there's actually some issue that need to shade some light on, now I have to be honest with you; you couldn't have picked the more right time to come to the office. Have you noticed something amiss? Did Lavi told you anything?" They searched closely for Amrahn's reaction. Perhaps if they couldn't confront him about it, they could at least reasoning with him, making him do the right thing.

I cocked my head when Wonderwise admited to his "true" intentions at being at my house, "besides the mess of books laying out everywhere and on top of eachother, no, I saw nothing amiss and Lavi stood guard by the stone and didn't say much and told me and the little Death Song dragonet that I took with me to show her what I did as a job to move along since she was dallying to long around the stone" I told Wonderwise, playing dumb and following my cover closely.

Wonderwise signed sadly "Lavi's guarding the stone all right, that's, what I've assigned him given what happened" They paused "I'm surprised that you don't feel anything about it yet but I don't blame you. I didn't know until Lavi told me earlier yesturday either. I'm afraid I have to tell you that the almighty stone's cracked"

Wonderwise stopped as if to let the revealation sink into the young dragon

I looked at Wonderwise with pure and natural shock, I knew the stone was dying but I did not know that the thing was actually cracking. I sat in scilence with shock still on my face, deep in my mind I thought about the process needed to make a new stone, with the cracks in the old stone it should be easy to get a seed for the new one I thought to myself.

"I don't quite know what to say other than I am shocked, I've been so busy these past few weeks that I wasn't really paying attention to my magic but now that you mention it I have noticed a few things have felt off" I told him, lying quite smoothly, my tone reflected my earlyier true shock and I hoped it pulled through. "Have you told the King? Do know what is causing it or what might fix it?" I asked, genuinly curious as to how Wonderwise and, by extention, the king would do about this.

Wonderwise and Sonora

"I have. There're currently four of us that knew; Him, Lavi, myself and you. We haven't plan to make it official and caursing a public concern yet but I believe a conciel meeting is nesscary. I believed that you should know being the offspring of the one who used to protect the stone" Said Wonderwise, they've concluded that the young dragon's respond was genuie. "Unfortunately, We are not sure what cause the crack other than the speculation that the stone's running out of energy, I'm not sure if you're aware of this but the almighty stone feed of souls energy, death as someone would say.such knowledge has never been much of a problem before and by the time most of us chose to forget we'ver already locked ourselves away living in blissfully ignorance that the souls this stone had would last forever. It's up to the king to make the decision; he can sacrifice a few of us to prolong the inevitable, a hundreds lives for another 10 years or less. Or we could sacrifice something different, something that's not one of us, something that would give this stone more years than hundreds lives of our own by it single soul" At the point the snow wraith looked at Amrahn with the piercing glare and Sonora found herself holding her breatg but then those eyes became soften "Of course if such options are available we wouldn't have this conversation! where was I? right, I hate to burden you with such news but we could use a genius mind like you, you're a smart youngling, Amrahn. I would love to hear if you have any thought about such matter."

I listened and nodded as Wonderwise spoke, I put on a thughful expression and acted if I was trying to comprehend and think about what he was saying. I gave him a bored stare in counter to his piecing one, I had grown accustomed to a similar glare as a pupil that it did not faze me. "Indeed, a panic would most definately enuse if the public came upon this news, wost case scenario is that those of this sanctuay would tear eachother apart to live longer" I said, giving a grim thought. I closed my eyes as if in thought about a solution, he suspects, mmmm I have to play this really carefully as to keep Sonora secret.

"Could we, possibly, make a new stone?" I questioned, curious on how Wonderwise would react, "I remember seeing something about it when I sadly padge through my father's journal not long after his passing" I said, again bluring the truth.

Sonora  looked closely at the snow wraith's reaction. Imagine if he (or a she? she couldn't tell)---they have human eyebrows they would have raise them by now. A rare chuckle was sounded "A new stone, you say? Why Amrahn that's such a thing to say. how are you supporse to recreate such emense power. I don't suppose Celestine would be able to come up with that because if he did how come he never told me about it?"

I heard a chuckle come from the depths of the ancient dragon, I would have stared if I didn't have the stone filling my head with horrid screaming. I did my best to hide my wincing. "I don't know, I only caught a glimpse and thought nothing of it then and I don't know why he would have kept it from you, maybe it required your death?" I said acting like I was trying to pluck random reason from thin air. The stone's screaming had lessened only slightly man, you really don't like the idea of being replaced I thought to myself.

((sorry I've been inactive, slight bit of writers block and a whole load of assignments))

It was a struggle, but finally- I was in the great cavern the jewel had shown me from afar so many times. Dozens of dragons stared at me with a mix of confusion, fear, and hate. None seemed inclined to do anything with him except watch.

"Where do the souls go?" I asked a Thunderpede.

It scurried away quickly, keeping a safe distance between me and itself. "Souls? Give souls!" I yelled at it.

A pair of Nadders wrinkled their noses. They were young and healthy. "Your years for them! Fair trade! Give it souls!"

They turned down a street.

"Give souls!"

((you can send some guards his way to deal with him, he's pretty much just going to be pestering dragons until then))

Wonderwise uncharacteristic amusement seem only grow as they chuckled again "Amrahn my dear, if I don't know you better I would have take that as a threaten" for a second from her spot, Sonora swore she could see something dangerous flash within the old dragons' eyes "But if the journal you've spoken of is true then I would have love to see it myself"

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

"Souls? what are you talking about, little buddy?" Gyro bend his head to one side, Oblivion to the danger. He vaguely awared that they're no longer alone, many dragons seem to be appearing around, are they interested in rocks too? They seemed scared and concern and angry but he doesn't know why. Because of them though the person doesn't respond to any of his earlier questions and keep asking the others around him about souls, man he really need that thing huh.

"Well I don't have it but I can help you looking for it, is it something you've lost?" Gyro speaks up moving close to get the smaller form's attention as the nadders flew away. Gyro would help him that for sure, whatever it is, it can't be literal souls right?

I listened, slightly unerved by Wonderwise, as he spoke and saw the dangerous glimor in his eye. "I will get to finding it imediatly and you will be the first to see it when I do find it" I told aging dragon who seemed to not have taken the very true suggestion, though unknown to him, lightly.

I looked at a clock on the wall and then to a tube of drawings in one corner, "I hate to push you out Wonderwise but I have other projects that I must attend to and finish designs for along with searching for lost memories" I said, looking apologetic.

"Why, of couse" The older dragon looked surprised by Amrahn irrupted request, they narrowed their eyes but keep their voice neutral and almost shameful as they made it out to be "Sorry for bothering you, I knew I must have interrupted something important, other than breakfast sometime. Well if you excuse me I will help myself out now"

Following the young death song's guide. They reached the door but turned around one last time, Sonora felt her heart stop as she swore the old dragon's looking directly toward her direction

"I trust that you're a reasonable dragon, Amrahn" They said "If it come down to it you would know what's the right thing to do"

with that the snow wraith left.

 

Wonderwise was unhappy but they did not let it shown as obvious. They didn't get what they want but they're certain now that the human is here and it is the solution but they're willing to give their previous pupil's offspring a chance to come around.

 

Sonora still breathless in the capboard, doesn't immediatally got out and waitng for her friend signal instead.

My heart was skipping several beats as the old dragon made his delayed way out of my house. I could tell he knew I was harboring a human which brought a greater urgancy to the completion of the spell and rebinding of my father's journal to show it to the old sorcerer.

I walked to the door and watched Wonderwise fly away before closing it and quickly making my way over to the kitchen, "Sonora?!" I quietly called.

A Snafflefang with a kind young face approached me. "The jewel! It hungers. It feasted once and it needs to feast again! Or it will break, beautiful green has already snapped, one crack, the ice reflects. See?" I rambled, pointing to the sky.

The crack was the tiniest pinpoint of dull light from here, unnoticable if you weren't actually looking for it. "Jewel will break, ice will copy, water is free. Like bowl"

A lot of folks

Sonora fell from the cupboard, breathless "I'm here, we're safe now?"

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

Gyro smiled brightly as he listen to the weird person's rambling "I only understand half of what you are saying but you seem to really love your stone, well then I will help you look for it that's for sure. Cheer up!"

"Stop!"

Gyro  looked around, someone was shouting and soon enough he spot her, the chief guardien herself with her cloak trailing afrer her beating wings. The grayish red rumblehorn stopped shot distance away but impressive and tall

"I'll be darned, it really is a human" Hala mused, but her voice lack of any surprise "Step away from the human, Gyro, he's dangerous madman clearly, I can see that look in his disgusting face humans or dragons those face are all the same"

"What? A human? where" Still oblivious Gyro looked around excitingly for a trance of one "Oh no if you said so this could be dangerous, I didn't seen him everywhere unless he's been disguise as a dragon! but I can tell apart a human and a dragon anydays hahaha eh."

Gyro stopped as he finally take a long good look at the smaller form in front of him. Hala watched from the distance, inwardly facepalming. Even the ever-so-serious head of the guards knew this friendly idoit that is Gyro, unfortuantely but she's dare summoning her flame now knowing it could harm the snafflefang. So she could only watch him beginning to piece it together.

"you look really like a human from the textbook now that you mentioned it, haha that's funny, not your face I mean--haha eh." the snafflefang laughed, rather nervously at the revealation

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

Wonderwise reached the castle, marely cased a glare toward Lavi who's still around, looked nervously back at them before he finally mused but his nervse to ask (though Wonderwise noted the edge of his voice and the no-longer-hidden impoliteness) "Well?"

"I could sense it just now she's definitely there" The old dragon replied

"And um...what's with change of heart just now? Why didn't you do anything...or did you?"

"Soon they will come to us, willingly of not"

"And...when would that be, are we having that much time on our wings?" Lavi asked nodding toward the crack on the stone, the voice in his head thankfully subside, for now

"Well I gave him a bit of time but if he failed to do the right thing then we can easily force it out, he's a good youngling I still want to give him a chance"

"yeah right He does get a chance" Lavi mutterd bitterly

"and you are too" Wonderwise said "If he's fail then it would be you to retrive the human for me"

Lavi blinked "Man, I don't know aren't you a better dragon for this task? or the guard perhaps?"

"Don't beat youself up, Lavi, You can camoufladge"

"and so can a lot of changwing guards"

"You have let them go the first time, they trust you"

"What kind of logic is that, It's not like they know I knew, okay? do you really have time for all this sick loyalty test, Wonderwise?"

Wonderwise can't capture Amrahn like that, or it would antagonizing the engineer to the public as traitor, so instead they're using me? Is that what this is? What am I to them anyway? Lavi then thought bitterly at his own words about having someone taking the blame for mass-murder instead, what an irony. Lavi then asked "I messed up once didn't I, why are you trusting me this time?"

"Like I said I want to give you a chance, Lavi" Wonderwise voice's soothing "and the stone would think the same too"

As if the make a point clear, the murderous voice in his head suddenlt intensified, so much the death song gasped in pain

"now if you excuse me I will be meeting the king now" And just like that Wonderwise walk toward the door to leave

that darn old ha---- the door closed leaving Lavi all alone with the stone again.

I saw Sonora fall from the cubbord and used my magic to set her on her feet, "for now.. that crotchety old dragon has some idea that you're here but from what I could tell he wants me to turn you in of my own acord" I said in a disgusted tone, "no wonder my father hid his discovery from the head scorcerer" I sighed, but I still have to show him the journal seeing how I mentioned it, I just hope it will be in time and he agrees to help instead of going after your kind as fodder for the stone" I said as I turned away from Sonora.

I noticed my bowl on the table but I did not feel hungry, I had to finish my spell to hide Sonora. I said a single word and all the material I had had out flew back out to where they had been, ready and waiting. I turned back to Sonora, "would you be willing to cut the bindings from my father's book so that we can give it a better cover and preserve what is left of our cover?" I asked, "also do you have any ideas for an aliby for you to be working sop close with me?" I asked for I had already used her name for her younger disguise and we needed a good story that the daft and closed minded dragon would believe.

The instant I looked at the newcomer, the jewel started screaming- something I had gotten relatively used to by now. "You!" I yelled out, pointing. "Yours is valuable. Strong. Many years left. A very helpful soul, full soul.Would you give to the jewel?"

lot of folks, still

((thank you for correcting me, Wutend, english isn't my mother's tougue but I tried))

Sonora

"I don't know, Amrahnn, what if he's right?" so it's a he then? "from you guys' perspective, it would be a lot better to sacrifice someone whose race responsible for this whole situation than someone of you own, wouldn't it?" Sonora said, trying to think from the old dragon's perspective. The snow wraith kinda remind her of a lot of viking she knew back at home(minus the ambigeous gender); some old folks who afraid that the world they've grown up in and build all around them will change. "It's his life, and yours too, not to mention other name in the list, we don't even know if it will work"

As she mused, she still followed Amrahn's direction and help him with the binding but still doesn't answer his enthusiastic question about the cover story they're going to use. Her mood's certainly downed from that thought she's spoken off.

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

Hala and Gyro

Hala has always been serious and stoic, aged and humorless as ever but for some reason the human's challenge light the fire in her eyes and Gyro could almost hear the smirk in the old war veteran's voice. She took that as a form of threat "Intersting, you human never changed, still babling nonesense and picking a fight, you want my souls? come and get it if you can human, show me what you're capable off!"

"H--hang on! let's not jumping into conclusion shall we?" Gyro ran up between the two when he saw Hala began to summoned her fire balls "Hey little budy, are you really a human? please tell us"

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

Wonderwise

Wonderwise reached the throne room. They want to check up on Lyder if he's come into term with his decision yet as well as the future plan from know, does he want there to be a council meeting? should they let him know about the human

((Wonderwise part's not as descriptive because I'm not sure if Lyder's still going to answer or not that way I can skip if nessescary))

I listened to Sonora, it seemed like she was siding with Wonder almost but from her it was more a gental offer than Wonderwise's demand. As we walked I shook my head sadly, "it would work, but for how long.. your soul would buy us 100 years at most and most dragons here would out live that, I myself am 365 and Death Song's have been known to push 1500... I don't want to have to hunt you humans to live longer, not all of your kind are destructive and would rather give my soul, alone if I had to, to make a new stone that might not need souls to survive" I told Sonora  when I arrived at the table that my father's journal lay upon with its false cover.

 I levitated Sonora up to the table and set her down next to the book. "you said you had a knife so I want you to cut all of the strings that hold the paper to the cover" I told her as I opened the books on magic on another table, "when you are done with that give a shout, I'll be working on that spell" I said for now that spell was probably the best bet to keep Sonora from being taken.

Adehte

The Rumblehorn seemed angry. I hadn’t done anything, had I? But never mind him- the much kinder Snafflefang seemed a lot easier to talk to. “Human? Yes. Jewel says smarter dragons have not known me for a long time. So it reached out, and found me to let you know”

 

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

 

Wolfnor

Another few hours passed by before the Flightmare projection returned. She had a much sterner attitude about her this time. She flicked a claw and he felt the spell or something lift. “So” she said. “We have an idea”

“And ‘we’ being who?”

She ignored his question, continuing. “There’s another one of your kind in the city. My employees can’t exactly get it without causing a ruckus, and our organization prefers to keep things quiet. But then again, if there’s already two of you then more are bound to show up- then subtlety will be a thing of the past”

“Wait, you mean someone else is here?”

“No, of course not, it’s actually just a deer in clothes!” she mocked. “Weren’t you listening? We need you to lure it out. Goodness knows the royals won’t know what to do with it, and likely will actually ki.ll them. I’m gathering something in you must have changed over the years, so hopefully some common sense was added in that time”

Wolfnor crossed his arms. “So… you want me to help you catch another person so you can… put them in a stone box?”

“You wouldn’t believe what someone would pay for a vial of your blood. Who knows what effect you could have on modern magics?”

“My blood!? You want to experiment on me?” he shouted.

“Well, yes. But that won’t be happening until we can secure a steady supply and make sure no one else can just get out the city and take their own humans. Then there wouldn’t be a market!”

“So what the h.ell makes you think I want to help you?”

She smiled- a very concerning sight. “Like I said- common sense”

“So, you’re threatening me?”

“Yes”

He glared the Flightmare down best he could. “No. I don’t care what happens, I’m not helping you to do anything. Let alone torture people”

She huffed, and disappeared again.

Sonora, Gyro and Hala

"Y--You are 365!?" Sonora's jaws drop as she count her fingers, she would love to press on but could sense the heavy atmosphere the conversion had lead to so she decided to dropped it for now and silently cutting the bind using her knife, It was a child play compared to other stuff she been using this knife for, she got it done in no time.

"Okay almost done" She called him. then start thinking about what he say earlier, maybe this should lighten the mood up "Hey, about that cover story, how about I said you and I are seeing each other? We meet at some sort of top of the hill in the middle of the night or something and just clicked, that way I can find an excuse to be close to you while have no need to remembering all those giblish witchcraft or dorky invention" Sonora really thinking it through while she said that, never the one who care much about this kind of stuff "I live alone far off near the woods, but your charisma just won me over!"

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

Gyro eyes' rounded, though surprised at the confirmation, some how he became happy that the human respond to him rather positively "Wow-wow I'm never thought I would be meeting human today, and a jewel lover at that!"

"Gyro!" Hala snapped from the distance, her patient begin to run out

"so let me get this straight" Gyro ignored her and continue talking to his new human friend "there's a green jewel, it's cracking and so the ice cracked too and it can talk?" Gyro was so confused, from behind he could feel Hala closing in menencely.

I looked up when Sonora said she was almost finished with the book bindings, man that was fastI thought to myself as I had only managed a single letter in the time passed. I picked up a well used and worn leather cover that had no text on it, it was an old school journal that I had transfered to another binding. "that.. would actually work rather well, especially out here in the rurals, there are a few families out here that I have heard about that are known hermits and talk to no one" I said as I arrived at the table Sonora was standing on.

"And Hey! My inventions are not dorky, I spent a lot of time on some of them and some of them are prototypes of things that are used out there" I said, acting along the lines of the cover, However you'll need to come up with a new name, something simple and void of titles" I told her as I set the contents of my father's journal into the leather cover and began using a needle and thread to skillfully stich the pages into place using the old holes.

Sonora

"Yes, yes you are. What you said just proved it! You are the nerdiest dragon I have ever met, oh my thor" Sonora said mockingly "and to think that I will have to pretend to be interested in you, maybe this won't be a believable cover story after all" it sounds cruel but Sonora made sure to keep her mocking grin up to let the death song know this is all just a tease "Why can't we use Sonora again? oh right that was the neighbor's kid's name now was it, what's you dragon's name like? Stormfly? Meatlug?" Sonora winced slightly at the idea....would that be offensive? it's the name viking come up for the tamed dragons thousand years after they've taking everything away from this dragons "How about Ruffnut?"

((No! The time that I can jump back in and I was without internet? No!))

Lyder

He had spent most of the following evening watching the stone. Nothing else had happened to it... yet.

 

But how could no be sure? Would the stone take long time for another crack to form? Or would it happened again soon? But if it, for say, would take another six months to crack, he shouldn't be wasting his time there.

 

He stood up from his resting spot and began to exit the room that the stone laid. But he turned around and stroked the side of the egg. "Please do no harm. The kingdom is counting on you." He then turned and began making his way back to the throne room.

 

But on the way there, many thoughts consumed his mind. Would the stone hold up? Is there anyway that they could prolong this? But there should be more than two dragons that knew about this.

 

He quicker his pace to the throne room. And when he approached, Wonderware was entering. "Schedule a council meating. Others must know about the stone," Lyder said to the old dragon. "We can't have the stone dying on us. More than you and me should know about this."

I chuckled lightly when I realized that Sonora was playing along and was able to see that her seemingly cruel comment was but a mere joke, "you should be able to fool everyone" I said. My smile dissapeared though at the names she gave out and I wrinked my nose slightly, "only if you wish to stick out like a sore talon, please don't tell me if that is some of the names you humans have given some dragons, a name similar to your own, longer and a little intricit" I said. the names she had given were so bland and simple I would find it hard to believe that any dragons in the sanctuary had a name like that.

Sonora and Wonderwide

Wonderwise opened their mouth to speak but was interrupted by Lyder, hearing the urgent in his voice and an authority. Wonderwise knew it's finally the time for king to take charged. "Understood, your majesty" They said and so begin the remanagement of the meeting, it was in the short notice but it can made do, they already have the place; the council. They just have to sent someone to prepare it and then called all the members; the king, the head of the college such as themselves, the chief guard force, Barnabas and the others

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

Sonora's smile faded when Amrahn mentioning viking giving name to dragons"So you knew....about the dragons...aren't that make you mad?" She asked  "Funny, you saved me because you want to know more about the outside world but instead we are preparing ourselves for this instead.....honestly I'm not sure if I want to tell you, so long as I know we've been battling the mindless version of your kind none stop, all the slaugthering then one day, out of know where a viking came and changed it all, prove that they're not mindless or harmful and we---tamed them. It sounds like a good thing for us, it IS a good thing for us but as I sit here looking at you I'm not so sure if you would think the same...it looks like friendship on the surface but it's also---tame, we ride them around, they're...like....pet?" Sonora realized she's been rambling when Amrahn could just be talking about something more general, like name calling the wild dragon?? anyway. Sonora coughed "anyway why don't you come up with the name yourself if you have such problem with it, just come up with something I can pronounce and remember"

I listened to Sonora's slight ramble, "we knew that dragons that lost their stone went feral but other than that we were at a loss for how they fared, what they became, and the likes" I replied as I continued to stich carefully, listening intently. "It doesn't surprise me that the feral dragons kept going after you humans, your kind tends to, at least as it is recorded in the older books, keep you animals not very well sheltered and alone aparently your kind was easy to take down.." I said as I thought about names, "but I wanted to know how much has changed, what 'new' lands lay outside this place that I have lived in my whole life, and from what you have told me I can tell things have changed greatly" I said, finally coming up with a good name, "how does Sulara sound? it's a rather commen Death Song name." I told her.

Hala gyro and Sonora

Sonora listened to Amrahn solemly and sadden when she think along about their fate "Must be a hopeful thought, huh"Sonora said "I guess"

thankfully another heavy topic has come to an end when Amrahn finally come up with the name. Thankful, Sonora too shrugged the sadness of like it hasn't happened "Well I'm okay with it if you said so, not like I know it's a common name"

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

Hala hissed. Her patient with this censored youngling fade quick, out of all the dragon that run into the human, of course it has to be the one that oblivious to what they're capable off and what crime they've bring about to dragon's kind. She's slowly closing in, keeping her watchful eyes as Gyro got closer and said something to the human.

Suddenly Hala's mind filled with the announcement of the council meeting , a technique they usually used to broadcast something important to the selective dragons, such as council members, a technique that belongs to someone with the bewilderbest blood such as Lyder "No no no, now's not the time!" Hala barked. And cursed their tradition, the meeting couldn't start without the chief guard.

"Gyro!" Hala roared, more authoritively than anything with malice "for the love of the maker, stay right here with the human, keep your eyes on him and don't do anything stupid, I will calls some of my wings to come on the way"

Gyro was dumbfold as he watched the old chief guard hurried away rather angrily. reluctantly he spoke to the human "So..........guess you stuck with me here, human, now can you tell me more about your stone?" He brought up his notebook as he spoke

 

and as she said, Hala ordered three of her best guard to storm back to the direction of the human before hurried toward the palace herself, she's more to say in the meeting but for now when it has yet to start she hissed at the old sorcerror when she passed them "this better be more important than what I've about to say"

King Lyder

Wonderwise quickly scurried away as Lyder began to sent out signals for all the council with his special power that was passed down from generation to generation along with the bewilderbeast blood. After sending it out a few times, Lyder opened his eyes and began to make his way to the council room.

 

Once he got there, he could see Wonder fiddling around making the last adjustments before the event began. Lyder sat down on the opposite side of the room, across from the door, for it was specifically made for bigger dragons like himself.

 

He watched as the council members began flowing in. Everyone waited for a few minutes until the head guard, Hala arrived and sat down besides Wonderwise. Lyder waited a few more moments began sitting up and pushed back his shoulders.

 

"The council meeting is now in session," he said, ordering everyone to silence. As far as he could tell, everyone was here, but he could never be sure. But if stragglers came in, they were late. But it was better to get started now. "Before we get far into this meeting, I have a piece of very startling news. As we all know, Wonderwise has been keeping track of the stone for almost the whole past century.

 

"But yesterday, Wonder had found something different about the stone. There is a crack on the outside of it. As if right now, I'm not sure how much is to come out of this. I've been watching it whenever I can since we noticed it's desurbatance and nothing else has came out from it. But I'd like to turn your attention to Wonderwise for then he can explain what may happen and the theories on how we may be able to fix it," he said, turning to Wonder.
