Rhea

Rhea mounted Dune smoothly and lifted off, Amber close behind. She headed for the forest where Hugo had said there were more dens. Hovering over the forest, she spotted a couple caves and holes leading below the mountains. "Well, we have some choices I guess." She looked over her shoulder to Deluca and Berit. "Where do you think we should start?"

 

(OOC: @wulfruna THAT LOOKS AMAZING!!! Thx! <3)

Leo nodded at Hugo "Yeah, Rhea said that you, me, Deluca, and Lilly (And Felix?) are working on the camp, we're plaining on using the sturdy oaks over there," He pointed towards the woods "for part of it, any ideas?" He nodded again when Hugo called for them to get some more lumber, they were going to need it. "Do you want to work on a blueprint idea? Also, I think Lilly should try and find some food or something we can use for food, just because she's a little smaller then the guys and might have more fun looking for food. I can already tell you, Lilly HAS to have fun otherwise we'll have a morning full of whining." He stated while looking for something to cut the trees with.

 

(That looks wonderful Wulf (sorry, don't remember your full name)! Although there is also a waterfall and a smallish river near the callapsed cave, Other then that, it looks spot on! :D)

Deluca Odri

Deluca looked at Rhea from his dragon, who was grumbling tiredly and overall annoyed of being awake. He sighed and looked over the holes that laid below them, seeing which would be a good option, but then remembered the important they needed before going down.

 

"Perhaps a torch would be a great place to start?" He sang, patting his dragon to quietly land on the ground.

 

 

((That's an awesome map!))

Berit

Berit looked down from her dragon at the holes that speckled the forest floor below. Even though she had been riding Firestorm for years now, she had never quite gotten used to the bird’s eye view. Pulling herself out of her thoughts, she said “there’s no telling which tunnel they’re in. It probably doesn’t matter which we pick.” 

At Deluca’s suggestion for torches, she angled Firestorm downward and landed him atop a dead but still sturdy-looking tree. She snapped three thick, dry limbs off of the top and held them up. “Do these look alright? Our dragons can light them,” she called out.

 

(OOC: thanks so much guys! It was fun to make :D I’ll update it with the waterfall and river)

Deluca Odri

Deluca nodded to Berit before pulling out some torn fabric of an old blanket, tearing it up even more and wrapping it around the ends of the wood she chopped up. Holding it up to Varis and at the sound of a short whistle from Deluca, the Deathgripper let out a small bit of acid onto the fabric on the wood and watched as it caught on fire.

 

"Good to go down any then?"

Rhea

Rhea nodded and followed the deathgripper down to the ground, landing behind Deluca. She slid off and began searching for some wood. Why hadn't she said that? She shook her head. She was a terrible leader. Why was she even the leader? She thought back to when they had first discovered the dragons.

 

(OOC: What follows is a series of flashbacks. If you don't like how your character is portrayed let me know and I'll edit. So that means don't reply directly to this post. :))

 

Rhea crept into Leo's room. He was sleeping, but she was too excited to care. Prodding him, she said, "Wake up!" He opened his eyes and sat up. "Rhea....it's midnight." She nodded eagerly and dragged him out the low window she had comein through. They trekked through the forest, barefoot, until they reached the beach. Leo was grumbling about the cold and how Rhea had to be out of her mind, but he stopped when they reached the beach and a sand colored dragon rose up to meet them. "Whoa...."

 

Two weeks later: Rhea flew wing to wing with the giant stormcutter, Leo and her were practicing flying through the canyon in a remote part of the land. She dove under an arc and spiraled back up, Dune crowing loudly. Suddenly, a call answered. Percy and Dune swiveled toward the noise to find Jonah, another boy from their clan, sitting on the beach with a white whispering death. Jonah looked up, squinting against the sun. "Oh hey," he called casually, "Nice day for a flight." Rhea and Leo exchanged a glance.

 

Two months later: They were in the canyon's main cavern, the blue fire of Amber lighting up the dark space. "We have to leave!" Mareena said. "Otherwise they'll figure it out. I don't care what Rhea says, the chief will never agree to let us keep out dragons." Several of the group members nodded in agreement while others looked unsure. Rhea entered, eyes cast downward. "What is it?" Berit asked. "He said no. He demanded I told them where we hid them." Hugo's eyes widened. "You didn't, right?" Rhea's eyes shot up. "Of course not! I told them it was the beach to leave us alone. But they'll find out I'm lying soon enough. She sat down, burying her head in Leo's shoulder. "I don't know what we'll do." Mareena glared at her. "Leave. Like I've been saying all along." This time, no one looked unsure...

 

 

"Good to go then?" Rhea snapped out of it in surprise as Deluca asked her a question. "Yeah." She focused and repeated herself. "Yeah. Let's go." She took the lead and skidded down one of the steep tunnels. When she reached the bottom she realized she probably should've waited for Deluca to go first since he had the torch. She slid to the side as the others cam down.

((Did you guys want to do a full flash back soon? Where we all kinda of just go through how everyone met each other to the point they left? We could do that after or during the building process of the home, after everyone's together again, yeah?))

 

Varis dropped his tail in the hole and Deluca slid down it gingerly, looking to Rhea with an expecting stare. Then offered her his torch.

(OOC: Sure, or people could just fill in the blanks of the flashback I wrote as we go on. So like someone can choose how they met Jonah, Rhea and Leo. Then whoever goes next says how they met all four of those people and so on. And you don't neccesarily have to meet all of them. You could like meet one who introduces you to the others, or meet someone else first and you both get introduced to the group at the same time. It'll help connect characters. Also, idk if War (the shy one) is going to join us so someone can take her (or him) over if you want.)

 

Rhea blinked at Deluca and then realized he was waiting for her to lead. "Right." She took the torch and headed into the tunnel, Amber anxiously whining behind her. For such a confident trainer the silver phantom was quite nervous.

((XD that's totally something Jonah would do. Also I'd love to see a full story behind how they all met and stuff! Maybe if there's gonna be a long flight or something...))

((Also I like the fireworm idea XD lets go with that :P))

((Also Wulf that map is amazing! Super detailed, also helps me picture it better!))

 

Jonah followed Mareena and listened to her complains of how long it was taking to find the exit. Echo continuously sniffed the air, seeming on edge.

"Maybe it's a hallucination?" Jonah suggested, though this was a very odd hallucination at that.. "Maybe Echo can help us find a way out, she has a good nose-right girl?" He asked, but his praise gone unknown as the whispering death continued to sniff around.

 

"I gets to find ze STICKS?" Felix grinned then ran into the forest, way too excited to get started. Flame gave a roar telling the teen to wait up, but his efforts were futile so he had to follow..

Mareena

Mareena stopped, frustrated. "I don't understand..." she trailed off as the glow seemed to come closer. "Huh." She peered at it, as it sped up. "Is that..." Her eyes widened. "Duck!" She pulled Jonah down as a small group of fireworms blazed at their heads. She dropped to the floor, whipping around to track the tiny dragons with her eyes. The little fireworms had lethal venemous tongues and boiling hot skin. However, the dragons didn't turn around again. Instead, they sped down the corridor her and Jonah had just walked up, and made a sharp turn. "Phew." Mareena shook her head. "So much for an exit." Suddenly, there was a shout. She turned to look at Jonah. "What was that?" She turned as more of the fireworms whizzed past her in the same direction. 

 

Rhea crept forward cautiously, moving the torch to see the walkway better. They were about to turn at a fork when a glowing mass shot at her. "Ahh!" She dodged, and Dunestar shot forward, snapping at the little dragons that had attacked his rider. The little worms evaded the weak attempt and regrouped, shooting back at the group. Rhea slashed the torch through the air at the dragons but if anything, it just seemed to aggravate them now. "Guys? A little help?" She ducked again. "Avoid touching them! And their skin is hot!" Amber yelped as one of them shot by too close to her shoulder. She wished Hugo was here, she didn't know how to defeat them.

((yeah the map looks soooo gooood! I also like the flashbacks, pretty cool))

"Ah I forgot, yeah, it would be best to go get some berries. Hey Lilly, I got a better job for you! Here's a pouch, you can go down to the pine forest on the east side of the island. They've got so much berries there! You can even eat along the way - but just be careful of one berry, it's bright orange and extremely poisonous. Every other berry is fine."

"Yeah these oaks would come in real handy, they're really strong, and on this island, it's best we live up high."

Lilly jogged up to Hugo "Yay!" She started as she accepted the pouch from Hugo "Food is way more fun to do then trees! Is anyone else coming with me?"

...........

"Hmm" Leo hummed "Do we want to make some sort of structure like a tree house? or maybe something closer to the ground? what do you think? Also, are we trying to do a really good structure or a smalller flimsier one?"

 

(IDK Maybe a little of both? Not enough to be boring but enough so that we have something to do when they're in the tunnels?)

((Yeah, I kinda find it a little weird we started after everyone met and they were already running.. but, uh.. Yeah okay... XD up to you guys about the whole flashback meeting or time skip or something thing :P))

 

Deluca ducked at the sudden bright creatures that fluttered around them, biting back a scream as one slammed into his arm, then sent a glare towards Rhea at her delayed warning of their boiling hot skin.

 

"Oh you don't say" he snapped, getting closer to the wall to try and avoid the dragons as much as he could. Varis hissed and tried to slash at a few of the fireworms, but eventually was stopped by a whistle from his rider. The tunnels not quite large enough to do proper attacks, and left a lot of room for possibly hurting one of their own.

Mareena and Rhea

Mareena yanked Jonah towards the shouts as they sounded again. "Come on!" She sprinted down the rocky hallway, bare feet cutting against the rough stone. She turned the corner and stopped as she saw Rhea, Berit, and Deluca battling several dozen of the glowing dragons. "The light!" She realized. Fireworms, attracted to others of their species, most likely thought the torch was more of it's own kind. She raced down, axe spinning, and cut down some of the fireworms, but more were coming. "Amber!" The brightly colored phantom looked up as her rider came down the cavern and rumbled happily. "Amber! Fire!" Mareena called to her, but the dragon was oblivious. Mareena slashed at a nearby fireworm and turned to see more of them. "Ugh! Fire Amber!" The dragon finally caught on, sending a blue streak down the tunnel. 

 

Rhea gritted her teeth as Deluca got burned by one of the dragons. To her relief, Mareena came running down the tunnel, Jonah in tow. The pink haired warrior began slashing at the offending reptiles, but it became clear there were just too many of them. But, when Amber shot her fireball, the fireworms scattered, apparently put off by the eerily colored blast. "Guys!" She pointed at the steep tunnel they had come in from. "Back up the tunnel! Jonah and Mareena - have your dragons continue firing as we go up, the worms don't like it." She started to edge backward, still swinging her spike staff at any dragons that came too close.

"Yea that sounds like-woah!" Jonah was cut off when Mareena grabbed his arm and dragged him down the tunnel towarsd the sounds of the shouting. He didn't struggle as Mareena led him to the sources of the shouting- Rhea, Deluca and Berit. They had actually came looking and found them. Well apparently the fireworms found them first. Which the three were battling, and losing to.

"Echo it seems we might need some fire," Jonah suggested as Mareena finally freed his arm. The other dragons started doing their fire blasts and Echo followed suit. Shooting a wicked ringed fireblast in the same direction as the other blasts. The blasts distracted the tiny dragons allowing them to go back the way the others came from.

 

Felix had gathered a bunch of sticks... Not logs or anything that they could use to build. Only sticks he thought were suitable for wands. Flame however had gathered the logs instead, nudging Felix along with a shove of his nose.

" A SHARP STICK!" Felix exclaimed as he started stabbing his arm with a strangely sharp stick "Very sharp. I'm keeping it!" he grinned like a child who had found a super cool rock.

Berit

Berit let out a sharp gasp as the swarm of tiny glowing dragons materialized from the darkness of the cave. She crouched as they flew overhead and drew her sword. One of the fireworms charged towards her at a ridiculous speed and ricocheted off of her sword, leaving a small ding in the metal surface. “Ok, what now?” She thought.

Suddenly, she heard Mareena’s shouts echo from deeper in the cave, and Flame began to blast at the tiny burning pests. At Rhea’s order, Berit got to her feet and started to back quickly out of the tunnel. 

One of the fireworms, in its panic and confusion, hit solidly on Berit’s face. It dropped to the cave floor and scurried away after she yelled in shock and swatted it, burning her hand as well. She growled in rage and slashed indiscriminately at the air, striking down a few fireworms but mostly hitting the walls of the cave. Finally, she turned and fled to the surface after another one of the little beasts landed on her boot and briefly set it ablaze.

Mareena and Rhea

Mareena nodded and took a position behind Amber, urging her to continue firing. Echo joined the ffort, shooting rings of fire at the fireworms. Berit went up first, then the others, until it was just her, Jonah, and Rhea. "All right Amber, keep firing, you guys go up, I'm gonna bring this passage down." 

 

Rhea watched the others go back up to the surface and followed in suit at Mareena's command. She leapt up the steep tunnel, clinging to the rough rocks and hauling herself over the edge. As soon as she was through, she put a hand down to assist Jonah. 

 

Mareena waited for the others to get up the tunnel before backing up against the wall. "Amber, fire up!" The phantom growled and shot a streak of blue directly at the ceiling of the tunnel, causing a downpour of soil during which dragon and rider scrambled up the tunnel to safety. "Well that was fun," Mareena said after a moment. Then she stood up and grabbed her shoes from Dune's pack, slipping them on in relief. She'd probably have to bandage her feet later.

"uhmm not at this stage, but one of us will do island rounds on our dragons every few hours or so, just for reconnaissance." Hugo said to Lilly after handing the pouch to her.

To Leo, "Let's build a good structured treehouse, yes it's gonna be hard but we've all got our dragons, many hands make light work. These oak trees have really wide branches and trunks, so they can hold a few people in a treehouse. If we build 3 treehouses, one for the boys, one for the girls and one for other things, that would work."

((Allright a little bit of both it is xD))

"I'm not sure what that means but okay!" She grinned at Hugo before heading off to the berries "I'll be the-best-berry finder in the world!" She yelled as she started skipping instead.

.....

Leo grinned while Lilly skipped off. She really was a free spirit. "Sounds good to me!" He replied to Hugo "Which one do we want to do first? How about the middle one, we can still use it for our supilies but also maybe put a few people in depending on how quickly we finish." He waited for a reply while watching Felix do nothing of use.

Jonah nodded and went out, whistling for Echo to follow. When he reached open air he took a relieved sigh and waited for Mareena to come out, which she and her dragon did-all covered in dust.

"Now we know that there's more than whispering deaths here," he commented

 

Felix went over to the others with his sticks, his sharp stick held up high in his hand like the leader of a parade. Flame followed with actual useful building materials.

"Okay, let's get started!" Leo went and started gathering logs. 

......

"One for me, one for them, one for me, one for them..." Lilly almost chanted as she plucked the berries off. They were gonna be so proud of her! She hadn't gotten distracted once! 

*Five minutes later*

Never mind. They weren't going to be all that proud she thought as she played with a terrible terror. Well, at least Gilder, as she had named the dragon, would be proud of her.

Deluca groaned at Jonah comment, holding his stinging arm and letting his eyes float into a near roll.

 

"Great to know... May we go?" He squeaked, a little out of breath from the running and climbing. He started turning to walk away, whistling for his dragon to follow, which did so with a slight warble.

Mareena stalked back to the others, calling over her shoulder. "Some rescue that was! We had to save you." She rolled her eyes and grabbed her cape from Dune's pack as well, swinging it smoothly around her shoulders. 

 

Rhea nodded at Deluca, but he was already off. She followed behind Dune and Deluca, trying to untangle her windblown hair. When they arrived back at the camp, she sat against aa tree in exhaustion. "Where's Lilly?" she mumbled, eyes half closed even though it was probably barely noon.

Leo glanced at the returning group, glad to see the others come back. He looked at Rhea with consern evident in his face. "You okay Re?" He quickly nodded away the question and replied to her. " Lilly went out for berries, although she should be back soon." He went over and sat beside her. "We got a lot of the structure done, although I don't think it will be ready for tonight" He gave Rhea a report on the building.

..................

Lill started heading off to the group, with Gilder on her shoulder. Oh well. At least she had some food. She guessed that she had about an hour untill she had to be back. She grinned at Gilder and Erson, "Want to play hide and seek?" she asked. The dragons nodded at her before running off into the forrest. Lilly started to count.

Mareena and Rhea

Mareena went over to Amber's pack and pulled out bandages. She thenwent over to the edge of the forest, spotting some dandelion and marigold. Perfect, she thought and picked several. She went pack to the group and sat down against Amber, tugging off her boots she winced at the small cuts on her feet and began to grind the marigold against a rock. When she was done, she applied it to her feet and bandaged them before slipping into her boots again. Mareena stood up and went over to Berit, grinding the dandelion into a separate rock before dabbing some on her face. She went over to Deluca to do the same to his arm.

 

Rhea nodded at Leo and then raised her voice so everyone could hear. "We're not going to be exploring tunnels again anytime soon. We all know there's whispering deaths, but we just made the discovery of a fireworm nest as well. We're lucky we didn't encounter the queen." She pushed off against the tree and to her feet. "Alright Hugo, what else needs to be done?"

Berit

As soon as Berit reached the surface, Firestorm nabbed her by the back of her shirt and curled around her protectively. He hated caves, and had spent the entire time pacing at the entrance, trying to decide whether to follow or not. He was grateful that his trainer had returned safely and saved him from having to choose.
“Get off me, you brute.” Berit scolded, smiling as she unwrapped herself from the dragon’s coiled body. She quickly swung herself onto his back, trying to ignore the stinging pain on her face and hand. “New scars to add to the collection”, she thought, touching the spots carefully. She was almost used to this kind of thing by now, having fought dragons for several years.
She followed the others as they flew off back to camp. Firestorm did a few happy loop-the-loops through the clear, crisp air as they went. The time passed rather quickly, and soon Firestorm landed alongside the other dragons at the edge of the forest. 
Berit dismounted and, tired from the morning’s task, went to rest under an oak tree. Firestorm followed and floppehis head on her lap like a large dog. She examined the damage that the fireworm had caused to her boot, frowning. It would have to be patched, and she wasn’t much of a seamstress. She sighed, closed her eyes and leaned her head back to rest on the trunk of the tree. 
She was startled back into alertness moments later to find Mareena smearing some sort of plant juice on her face. She started to ask what was with the plants, but changed her mind and just said “Thanks.” She supposed Mareena knew what she was doing. It was helping the stinging, anyway. As soon as Mareena left, Berit leaned against the tree again. She hadn’t planned on taking a nap, but was asleep within moments.

Deluca had made his way over to the water to cool down his arm, barely listening to the group behind him. The cool water stung his arm, but after a short moment, brought relief to Deluca. Only for the magenta haired girl to start grinding up flower heads, and applying them to his arm. He gave her a confused stare and started slowly pulling his arm away from her.

 

"Can I help you?" He spoke, raising an eyebrow to her.

To Jonah's amazement, the only injury he's received was a stubbed toe. No burns or scrapes or anything. Echo seemed okay too, though she did keep an eye out for any more flaming tiny dragons.

"I'm all good," he reported "Maybe we should put signs near the caves," he suggested to Echo, knowing the others were busy.

"LOOK I FOUND A SHARP STICK!" Felix went over to show Jonah, lightly stabbing him with the pointy end of the stick.

"Neat, a weapon now," Jonah grinned and gently moved the pointy stick away from his direction and onto the floor "Also a neat art tool,"

"woah... Art stick..." Felix gaped.

Flame and Echo started having a conversation, probably talking about their humans... And their shenanigans.

Mareena wrinkled her nose at Deluca. "No, I was helping you. It's marigold. Helps with stings and such, so I figured it would help with your burns too." She tossed her hair over her shoulder. "But it looks like you got it covered with your river water there, so I'll leave you to it." She set the rocks down on a nearby rock and made her way over to Jonah, watching Felix assault him with a pointy stick and the other boy distracting him easily. She grinned and shook her head. She'd probably have broken that stick in two. She turned to Rhea, who had asked Hugo what to do, wondering the same thing herself.

"Well there's still a bit to go. We've decided to build 3 treehouses, one for the boys, one for the girls and one for the uh, idk main hall? Anyways we are almost finished the main hall, just got to put a roof. If we could find some large leaves to shelter from any rain, that'd be good. Anyways we still have the other two huts to build, the boys house will be on the west side on that big Oak tree over there and the girls will be on the east side on that side oak tree." Hugo points to both trees.

"We still have a few days to build these tree houses, so don't stress to much. It doesn't look like there will be any rain for the next few days." Hugo said as he looks to the sky.

Deluca gave a blank glare to the back of Mareena's head, rolling his eyes and standing. Varis sniffed the merigold covered rocks and began licking them clean, happy warbles emmitting from the dragon. Deluca looked over at the others explaining what they've done, tilting his head when Hugo frequently talking about rain. 
 

"Rain?" He chirped after Hugo finished explaining.

 

"I'm more worried about winter coming in..." he glanced at the trees and studied their colours and how many leaves were falling at once. 
 

"I'm assuming... a month" he cooed, crossing his arms.

 

"And I don't think giant leaves are great protection against snow..." he dragged out the statement, head tilted and a little snarky, but didn't mean any offense in any of his words.

Mareena and Rhea

Mareena had to agree with Deluca. Leaves wouldn't do much. But she didn't want to argue with Hugo, so she just leapt onto Amber and headed towards a denser part of the forest in the north where she'd seen some pines. Her dragon, happy to be of use, purred, vibrating through her scales into Mareena and shook out her wings, flapping up into the air with a happy snort back at the others. They flew low towards the woods until Mareena spotted a smallish tree and began to hack at it with her axe. It fell after a while and she cut it again, halfway through and then lengthwise several times. Then she started again.

 

Rhea frowned at Deluca's candid response to Hugo's suggestion. Mareena took off without notice. "Mareena! Where are you...?" But the girl was already gone. She rolled her eyes and Dune harrumphed in agreement. She patted him and said, "Well leaves could be useful for the roof if we put them between planks of wood. I know Leo found some for sleeping on last night, maybe we can use those plants again." She scaled the big oak tree to survey the work. The dark floor was rough but sturdy and the walls were tightly made, reaching up about ten feet on each side. "This looks really good!" She called down to Hugo and Leo. She squinted up at the sun, trying to measure how long the planks would need to be. She estimated about 20 feet. She went back down. "Maybe we should also add smaller pieces of wood to make climbing easier," she suggested, picking up some of the leftover chopped wood. 

 

(OOC: So, I think our characters should start having more flashbacks. Here's a list of what each character should have a flashback of, but feel free to add more. :)

Rhea: all done :) Although I might do another one about how she found Dune, but she has already had two to herself so idk...

Leo: How he found Percy. (permission to include Rhea if wanted)

Jonah: How he found Echo.

Lilly: How she found Erson. How she met Jonah, Rhea, and/or Leo. (could be any combination of those people)

Berit: How she met Flame(?). How she met the others listed above. (again, any combination)

Hugo: How he met his dragon. How he met the others above.

Deluca: How he met his dragon. How he met the others above.

Mareena: How she met Amber. How she met the others above.

Felix: How he met Mr. Flamey Pants. How he met the others above.

Any of these characters could run across Jonah, Leo, and or Rhea first, this is just a random order. Just make sure that it makes sense tying into the stories that others put. This will prob be a little confusing, so just try you best. After everyone has done their flashbacks (italicized please!), we will have a whole group flashback like Dylieh suggested for how we had our first meeting. I was thinking there could be three meetings total, but we'll get to that later. Also if you have any suggestions or I missed something, please let me know. )

Hugo

((Oop I didn't rly know what the weather was like, just pretend I said it was "temporary" aha. Also yeah let's start getting into backstories. I can't atm but will soon :P))

"You're right deluca, I didn't realise that. So yeah we need to build better roofs than just some flimsy leaves, however fitting leaves in between the logs is a great idea, we'll do that. Nice, Rhea"

Hugo steps up on Zekrom, "I'll go find Mareena, and we'll bring some more logs and leaves ((btw I mean big leaves)) back." Hugo and Zekrom fly off.

Mareena

Mareena was on her seventh tree when Ambersong called out in excitement and she turned to see Hugo approaching. Great, she thought, Rhea probably sent him to get her back to the camp. She rolled her eyes and continued her blows with the axe, ignoring the dragon and trainer as they arrived. She had a small stack of trees piled up behind her, courtesy of Ambersong, as she couldn't lift them after cutting them down. As she felled her lates tree, the silver phantom perked up and grabbed it with her legs, flapping over to the pile gently to set it down. Mareena began to work on cutting off the branches of the trees, using the spike on the back of her deathgripper axe. As she worked, she allowed herself to slip into the past...

 

HOW MAREENA MET AMBERSONG:

"Not. Happening." She crossed her arms and leaned away from the sword her father was handing her. "Come on Mare, it's not a dragon, it won't kill you to try it," her father responded in frustration. "Dad, I'm top of the clan's training academy for hand to hand combat, axe combat, and defense maneuvers. Why do I need a sword?" He turned red. "I WAS TOP IN MY CLASS FOR EVERYTHING!" he yelled at her angrily and threw the sword at her feet. Then he turned away and marched out of the empty ring, locking the door behind him. "You can stay in there until you've mastered that sword!" he shouted through the metal door. She stuck her tongue out at the closed door and rolled her eyes. She gave a disgusted look at the sword, it's shiny blade covered in dust from the arena floor.

Suddenly, a bright red flash appeared in the reflection. "What the...?" She turned behind her but there was nothing there. She looked back to study the sword, and a loud clanging sounded behind her. She looked up in surprise to see a massive silver phantom clinging to the metal netting of the arena ceiling. It shrieked down at her and began using its sharp beak to tear at the netting. Too proud to start pounding on the door for help, Mareena shakily lifted the sword and crept backwards against the wall. The silver phantom swiftly decimated the metal netting and landed in the middle of the arena, screeching again loudly. It advanced, and Mareena swung the sword in warning. The phantom hissed and used it's tail, swiftly knocking the unfamiliar weapon out of her hand. Mareena gritted her teeth and ran at the silver phantom.

Taken aback, the dragon was caught off balance and she was able to hook her boot around its wing, vaulting onto its neck. she used her belt to try and strangle it, but to her surprise, the dragon took off, lifted up into the sky, higher and higher. Mareena clung on for dear life, but it was getting harder to breathe. She realized she was making it go up by pulling on the belt and stopped. It leveled out, losing altitude and she took a deep breath in relief. It screeched back at her, but less hostile this time. She grinned and tried to pat it on the head, nearly losing her hand as the phantom snapped at her. "Okay, not doing that." 

They flew around for hours until the dragon got tired and landed. Mareena cautiously slid off and looked back at the dragon. It cooed at her gently and took off again, disappearing into the sunset.

Peeps

Jonah continued to amuse Felix with sticks for another 30 minutes before Felix had run off with Flame to who knows where?

Even after the two left, Jonah didn't get up to go help. He and Echo just basked in the sun, something they usually did back home....

(A little while ago...)

The day was like any other, Jonah had gotten the okay to go wander the forest, a usual after a hard day's work. His father worked as a blacksmith, so he tended to smell a bit like iron and smoke. 
While wandering the forest, Jonah had noticed the change in the ground beneath his feet. Like a large gopher hole, when the ground was soft but wouldn't collapse... yet. The strange ground was entrancing, so he decided to follow. He was so caught up in his thoughts that he hadn't noticed the large hole until he had fallen in it. Even then he had to take a moment to understand he was underground.

"That's new," he nodded thoughtfully. The tunnel was nice and cool compared to the heat on the surface, but the hole allowed the sun to shine down to the entrance. He had never felt so at peace, while one would typically scream and scramble to escape, Jonah knew that he'd escape- one day. But for now he decided to enjoy the moment by taking a nap right where he was.

Maybe an hour later is when Jonah awoken. He was warm, and it felt like something was on his feet... Oh wait... He glanced down at his feet to see an unnaturally large, white, spikey snake at his feet. Wait no, not snake. Dragon. He'd heard tales about the creatures, and none of them were good. This was one of those rare times when Jonah almost screamed. But something stopped him- he wasn't d.ead. And the dragon was just sleeping at his feet. Woah... Thr dragon was so close he could touch it. And which he did. Only then did the dragon stir into consciousness, where it noticed Jonah. They stared at each other for a good minute. Eyes locked onto each other's, as if they were trying to speak without words. 
After a moment the dragon slithered away, never to be seen again. Till a few weeks later. Jonah was still thinking about the dragon he met, he didn't tell anyone in fear that the creature would be hunted down. But he went to the first everyday after that, and that's when he found the dragon again. Sitting by the hole Jonah had fallen in. It seemed to be... Thinking? Or maybe it missed him? He walked up to it and gently touched the glimmering white scales.

"Hey," he muttered gently to the dragon in which the dragon gave a gentle grumble in reply. 
After that moment, they initiated a bond in which only a few others had. They spent a few more days together before Jonah named the dragon, Echo. No reason behind it, but just it seemed to fit her, and it seemed she liked it too.

:)

Lilly came back with Erson and Gilder either on her shoulder or following her. She had a pouch full of berries, (although most would wonder how she got so many!) and a body full of energy. "Heelllloowwww everyone!" she came into the camp "I got the berries! And a new friend!" She took Gilder off her shoulder "Everyone, meet Gilder!"

 

.............................................................................

 

Leo had to say, he was supprised, how had she collected so many berries? And why does she always come back with a friend? He rememberd when he had first met her

 

"Hey Re!" Leo shouted "who's that?" He pointed at a girl with almost golden color hair and an owl on her shoulder.

"I don't know" Rhea replied over the wind "Is she in the tribe? And why does she have an owl on her shoulder?"

"Beats me" Leo answered as he watched Lilly come over to them. "Helllooowwww! I'm Lilly! Whatcha guys talking about?" She sat down beside them, her legs dangling over the side of the cliff.

"We were just wondering if we knew you or not," Leo Replied "I'm Leo, and this is Rhea, the prettiest woman this side of the archipelago." He flirted. "Are you in our tribe?" 

"Yep!" Lilly responed "I live nearer to the water, I have a good friend down there, wanna meet him?"

"Sure" Rhea responded. with that, they headed off to meet Lillys friend.

 

(Also, I though maybe Jonah was her friend? I mean I leave it to anybody to pick it up. If not then we'll just say that it was a random kid or something)

He walked over while laughing, taking a short break from his work. "You allways know how to make a friend uh?" He took the berries from Lilly and put them safely away "Do you want to help me with the wood?"

................

"Sure!" Lilly started finding branches "Are these good?" Leo laughed "I was thinking more logs..." "Ohh, well, I can do that to!" she ran of to, supposedly, get logs. Leo once again laughed to himself before heading off to do the same.

Berit

Berit awoke suddenly, even though there had been nothing to wake her. She pushed Firestorm's head off of her lap, stretched, and looked up at the sun, which was just overhead. She had slept for about an hour. With a bit of surprise, she noticed that almost everyone was gone. 

Closely followed by Firestorm, she made her way towards the river and bent down to splash her face with cool water. She jerked back in surprise as a small carp swam past only inches below her nose. Suddenly noticing her hunger, she unsheathed her sword and positioned it over the water. She struck swiftly as the fish swam beneath the tip, and yanked it up out of the river. 

“No!” She scolded Firestorm as he tried to grab the fish. “This is mine! You’re a big grown-up dragon, get your own!” 

Firestorm grumbled and glared at her, then sauntered up to the edge of the water. Berit flinched as he struck his head down with lightning speed. Moments later, he came up with a large salmon between his teeth. She watched in awe as he effortlessly repeated the process two, three, four times, each time catching equally impressive fish that dwarfed her carp. To her surprise, once he was finished, he dropped his catch at her feet and stared pointedly at the fish still hanging off her sword.

“Oh, I get it, it’s the principle of the thing,” she laughed. “you can catch all the fish you want, but you want mine. All right, have it then,” she said, tossing him the carp, which he ate with great gusto. Berit chuckled quietly to herself as she gathered up the fish and made her way towards the fire that was still burning back at camp.

 

(OOC: I'll put my flashback in my next post)

boop!

((Sure! I don't mind Lilly's friend being Jonah! Makes a more explained way of how they all met!))

((Also I'll do a short flashback with Felix later... I can't think of anything at the moment :P))

 

As Jonah napped under the sun, Felix and Mr.Flameypants went on their own in the forest to find... something. Felix was never occupied with one thing for long, it's a miracle that he didn't just go out on his own without the others. But then again... maybe he felt something other than extreme excitment? Maybe... Just maybe.

Deluca Odri

Deluca watched as everyone went their own ways to contribute to the shelter they were trying to build. Glancing over at it and glossing over it's progress, he let out a sigh, walking back to Varis and climbing onto his saddle.

 

"I'm gonna go patrol the island or map it or something I don't know" He half heartedly announced to anyone that was still near, then took off into the sky without waiting on any responses. Varis letting out a happy gurgling roar as he flew up above the trees. The orange colour glowing from the low hanging sun, with evening approaching them quickly, he began to wonder if he should of found something to do to contribute to the shelter so it would be livable a little quicker. But eventually just pushed it away as he rememebered how much was built in the day alone. The two flew on a little further until they came across the base of the mountains, the tips coated in snow and yellow and gold leaves gently being blown away by the wind. A chill crawled up Deluca's spine and he quickly pulled out a long fur coat that hung loosely around his frame as he slipped it on, holding it a little closer to himself in hopes to lessen the cold breeze. The male's thoughts soon silenced as he remembered everything that happened recently, and more particularly how it happened, glancing down at Varis, his mind began to wander back to how they met.

 

"Go to training! You missed that last few weeks already" His dad loudly spoke, a glare on Deluca as the younger challenged his dad with one in return. But after a moment of their staring contest, he rolled his eyes and walked outside, fur coat wrapped around his shoudlers. He started towards the village just a few minutes down the road, only to stop once in sight of it and simply turn away. Walking towards the mountains instead, although didn't have much of a plan as he walked, but eventually found himself at the bottom of the rocky formations. He followed along the edge of it until he came upon a small river that fell from the mountain cliffs above. He hummed and continued down the water's edge, kicking rocks and swatting branches in boredom until eventually the faint sound of dragonic barks echoed into his ears. Slowing his pace and keeping himself closer to the tree line as he tried to search for the creature that made the noises. After a few more catious steps and a turn around the bend, he found a mahogany coloured dragon drinking large gulps of water. Inspecting it further, he noticed the lime tipped armour that lined it's back crawl up into a long tail which curled over it's body. His eyes glided over to the front of the dragon, two labstor claw like legs were pulled into it's body to drop it's body a bit. It's eyes were dazed as it continued to drink, eventually pulling it's head back for a breath, and a large yawn, allowing two large tusks to protrude out of it's mouth. Deluca stood next to a tree as still as a statue as he tried to pinpoint the name of the dragon's species, his mind running through all he knew about dragons and their names, eventually landing on Death Gripper before it turned to sniff the air. Snapping it's attention directly to Deluca and giving him an angry roaring hiss, before charging after the boy, causing Deluca to turn and run deeper into the woods on the mountain. Dodging swipes from the dragon behind him, and eventually sliding into a small crevice in a cliff to avoid the lashing tail the beast thrashed with. Having not much other places to go, he decided to make himself comfy and wait for the dragon to leave. With the approaching night, Deluca eventually discovered the dragon's patience was equalivent to his own, as it stayed outside the opening to his little spot silently, waiting for him to leave the safety of the crack in the rock cliff. Causing Deluca to start randomly talking to the dragon, as if it understood him, but of course it responded to nothing he said. The conversation becoming tiresome, and soon the boy drifted to sleep clenching his fur jacket to himself as the cold took over every surface.

 

Another breeze of cold air attacked Deluca and Varis, bringing him back from his memories. With the both of them shuddering at the feeling, Deluca sighed then began to search the mountain areas, for nothing in particular, but after the second wave of frigid cold air, he and Varis scouted out for a cave to hopefully warm up in. Finding one that held a view of the ocean and quickly gliding inside, they found themselves on the other side of the island from where the others were.

 

"Guess... We should warm up and then head back to the others after, eh?" Deluca cooed patting the Death Gripper who trilled in agreement. Spewing out a puddle of acid that trickled into fire at his rider's command, the two huddled around it to steal it's warmth for themselves.

 

((I'll finish this little flashback in another post XD))

Mareena and Rhea

Mareena finished removing the branches and leapt on Amber, who grabbed three of the trunks with her hind legs and lifted off. "Grab some of those on your way back!" she called down to Hugo, forgetting that she was supposed to be ignoring him, and swooped back to the camp. Berit was also arriving with some fish. She dismounted and Amber hopped of of her pile of logs. "Rhea, here's some wood for the roof. Two of these should cover one cabin, but I left four more back at the forest in case we need them." She began slitting the log in half. Amber joined her, using her sharp spaded tail to split abart the wood. 

 

Rhea watched the others fly off, nodding to Deluca and turned her attention to buildling a ladder. She picked up a few smaller logs and fit them against the bark of the oak tree. Then she realized she didn't have nails and instead rummaged through her pack for a rope. She pulled one out and Dune bit it in two. She set to work buildling a rope ladder, easily tying the knots tightly as her mother had taught her. She let her mind wander as her fingers flew over the rope swiftly.

 

Rhea sat on the beach, watching the moon hover low on the water line. She wondered what it would be like to go beyond the horizon, into the moon. Daydreaming, she stood up and waded into the water, her dress flowing around her ankles gently. Suddenly, a low growl sounded behind her. She turned, but couldn't spot anything. She lifted her staff silently and looked around, until she spotted movement. The sand was moving. She crouched, aiming her spiked staff warily...

"RRAAAARGHHHHHH!" a pale figure leapt out of the sand and tackled her, knocking her fully into the water and pinning her down. She desparately tried to reach for her staff which had tumbled away from her but she couldn't move. Suddenly, the dragon opened it's mouth and lowered it's head to her face. She shrieked, thinking he was about to eat her, and was engulfed by wetness. Well, even more wetness.

After a moment, she opened her eys, realizing she wasn't dead, to see the sand wraith licking her face and neck eagerly and wagging it's tail. She scrambled ack into the waves, "St-stay back!" She pointed at it warningly, aware of how ridiculous she must look. Surprisingly, it sat down. "Huh." She stood up slowly and approached it, her hand out. It eagerly met her hand with it's nose. "You're trained!" she said in wonder as it rumbled and head butted her, making her stumble. She pet it gently with her hand and then realized she should tell someone. Eagerly, she leapt up, rushing towards the village where Leo lived...

 

She was startled back to awareness as Mareena called her name. "Oh. Yes. Um, here, I'll help you. She used the sharp edge of her axe and the two girls split the logs into planks together. Then, Dune took one end of it and Amber took the other, flying them up and placing them side by side over the treehouse. "Perfect." Rhea smiled and pet Dune.

Berit

With Firestorm’s help, Berit dragged a large, flat rock over to the fire to use as a work table. She sat down cross-legged in front of her new workspace and began to gut the fish with her sword. It was an unpleasant, awkward task, and she allowed her thoughts to drift as she did it.

 

The night was clear, calm, and draped with frost. Berit leaned against a large boulder just outside of the main part of the village, staring blankly into the distance. Her watch partner, an old man who should have been removed from the guard years ago, snored about ten feet away. Berit didn’t try to wake him. 

Suddenly, a shape loomed out of the darkness — Firestorm! He was creeping out of the forest, making his way towards her. “No, shoo!” She whispered frantically to him, now on alert. “Someone’ll see you!”

Just as he ducked back into the trees, something else on the other side of the village caught Berit’s eye — a human figure was creeping sneakily away from town. For a moment she wondered if it was a burglar or invader, but quickly recognized the figure by its bright pink hair. It was another girl from the village, Mareena. “What’s she doing?” Berit thought, watching her progress towards the forest. For the past few weeks, she had noticed several teenagers acting strangely - sneaking off, stopping each other mid-sentence, and whispering nervously together. Her best guess was that they were organizing some sort of coup. “Well, whatever it is, it ends tonight,” she muttered, sneaking away after Mareena. She only hoped that Firestorm would be smart enough to not follow.

She tracked Mareena through the woods for over a half hour, always staying just out of sight. The other girl went at a brisk pace, like she knew exactly where she was going. 

Eventually, the forest opened up into a large, moonlit clearing. Berit stayed in the shadows, scoping out the scene in a state of shock. Nearly every teenager from the village was gathered there, each alongside — Berit could hardly believe it — their own tamed dragons! She watched as the group began to discuss their situation and dragon-training anecdotes. In her excitement and without thinking, Berit stepped out into the clearing. 

The others froze and stared at her. It occurred to Berit for the first time that she was wearing full armor, was carrying a sword, and was a known and respected village guard. “They think they’ve been caught,” she realized. A few moments passed uneasily, Berit frantically casting about for something to say. Thankfully, Firestorm saved her. He strode confidently out of the forest, his metal teeth glinting in the moonlight. Berit patted his shoulder as he came up alongside her. “This is Firestorm,” she said, “is it okay if we join you?”

Of course, the answer was yes.

 

The fish were ready to be cooked. Berit rinsed her hands off in the river and collected a few stout sticks to use as spits, then came back to get to work again. She waved at Rhea and Mareena as they entered camp, but kept glancing nervously at the low-hanging sun as she put the fish on the spits and set them over the fire. “I hope the others get back soon,” she thought.

OOC

Ok, just going to sum it up so far:

First, Rhea met Dune at the beach, so she went to go find Leo. Meanwhile, Berit found Firestorm, Deluca found Varis, Mareena found Amber, and Jonah found Echo. A few weeks later, Leo had found Percy (we don't have the backstory on that yet) and they were flying together when they came across Lilly. Lilly introduced them to Jonah, who also had a dragon. Mareena meets Jonah (going to write this flashback rn) and he introduces her to the others. Hugo comes next soon after meeting Zekrom(no backstory on this yet).Then Felix joins, and Berit joins with Firestorm while on guard duty. Lastly, the group encounter Deluca, who warns them away from discovery. A gap, and the whole group is in the cavern where Varis led them preparing to leave.

 

So, basically, these are the flashbacks that need to be done before we work on the group flashback:

3. How Lilly met Erson

4. How Leo met Percy

5. How Hugo met he others

 

If you guys think the flashbacks are too much, I can help come up with backstories for you (bc I'm pretty bored lol), just let me know here or by PM. :)

 

Edit: I changed the timeline. @Dylieh Is that good?

Deluca Odri

The fire began dying down a significant amout, prompting Deluca to climb to his feet and collect piles of leaves and small twigs from outside the cave. Walking back in to see his dragon happily snoring, laying on his side with his wings sprawled out, earning an eye roll from the rider.

 

"No, it's cool, you just stay here, make yourself comfy while I do all the work" he sarcastically spoke, a tired eye roll from the Deathgripper who shifted his body to his other side in hopes to avoid eye contact with the raven haired male. Deluca shook his head and started carefully placing leaves and twigs on the dying fire, waiting for it to catch and burn more before tossing on the rest. Deluca huddled around the fire and leaned against his dragon, the cave they were in almost reminded him of their hide out spot at home, against throwing him down memory lane. Mostly of his month getting to know the Deathgripper, and how eventually they started flying together. His mind started to wander back to when he actually started talking to the group he traveled with.

 

"I really didn't want to be up this morning" Deluca groan to the far more muscular Chief, who simply bellowed in response and slapped the smaller boy's shoulder.

 

"Oh come Child. I promised ye'r father I'd train ya while he's away at sea" He spoke, accent heavy and eyes full of glee. Deluca rolled his eyes and pulled back the bow n arrow, releasing it barely a second later and watching the arrow land dead in the center of the target. The Chief scoft with a laugh, the other near by snickering. A few chirping calls alerted the men, quickly they grabbed their weapons and began racing after the noise. Slight worry creeped up Deluca's spine as he followed, hoping it wasn't the autumn coloured dragon he trained. Racing up to the Chief's side as he thought up a plan in his head.

 

"I'll scout up ahead and see what it is" He whispered, earning a smile from the older man who nodded ahead and slowed his men down. Deluca hurrying ahead, weaving through fallen trees and tried to keep himself off the ground as much as possible to avoid the yellow leaves that coated it. Some quiet laughing in the distance ended up catching his attention and he slowed himself. Creeping up to a clearing in the woods to see what it was. His head perked up and eyes slightly widened at the sight of the stormcutter, but the people that surrounded it caused his eyebrows to knit together, the Sand Wraith and Whispering Death that clung to their sides only continued to confuse him. Eventually he landed on the conclusion they trained the dragons as well. Leaning back on the low branch he was sitting on, and watching the three a little longer.

 

'I mean... I could just let him get busted and it would probably make it easier to ensure Varis wouldn't get caught..' Deluca thought, wondering if he should divert the Chief this way or another.

 

'Yeah I'll do that' He thought, sitting by and waiting for the Chief to catch up to witness the other teens and their dragons. A moment later however, the mahogany coloured Deathgripper jumped out and spooked the other. Quickly they jumped to their feet and began to try to "calm" the dragon. Deluca rolled his eyes and let his head fall.

 

"You... Useless reptile" He whispered, dropping to the ground and jogging over.

 

"You guys gotta go" he announced, slightly pushing the girl he assumed was Rhea onto the Sand Wraith, then eventually began pushing the others towards their dragons. He ignored most of their confused yelps and rapid questions, glancing back to see if the Chief was anywhere close yet.

 

"Chief's coming... You gotta go" He explained. The Deathgripper was still in a playful mood however, so he pounced on Deluca with a cheerful warble, only to tilt his head at the bored stare his rider gave him.

 

"What are you even doing here..... Go home" He ordered, and with an annoyed bark from Varis, he turned and took off into the air. Leaving Deluca to watch the four fly away, scrambling to his feet and looking around in confusion, the Chief racing into the clearing, demanding the whereabouts of the dragon. The raven haired male spun in a circle again, purposely losing his balance as he tried to pinpoint a spot to direct the man.

 

"Uhm. That way... Or... maybe that way? I don't know" He bleakly spoke before the large men raced off in the general direction he pointed in. Deluca watched them disappear into the forest shade, a devious smile slid onto his face before he turned and headed towards the mountains. Finding the one crevious in the cliff that the dragon trapped him in before, and squeezed through the opening it lead into. Climbing through the cavern until he came into a wide clearing, a warm glow marking his destination, getting tackled by the usual dragon as he entered his little area. The boy playfully shoved the Deathgripper away then looked to the others who have seemed to followed him home. Jumping to his feet again and crossing his arms.

 

"Why'd you bring them here" He asked the dragon then only gave him a blank stare, before turning to the other three with a wild hiss and defensive stance. Causing Deluca to plant his face in his hand and sigh.

 

"Forget it, they're already here"

 

"You trained a dragon?" The rider of the Stormcutter asked.

 

"Maybe" He answered blankly, Varis cooed, studying his facial features then mirrored his rider's bleak stare towards the others, almost as if mocking Deluca.

 

"Well. Did you wanna join us? Since we all have dragons too" Deluca sighed as he stared at the guy who lazily sat on the Whispering Death asked.

 

"Let me think about that..." Deluca answered in a stinging sing song tone, with an immediate no sounding off in his head.

 

"You guys can leave the same way you came in" He announced shortly after, arms still crossed and annoyance in his eyes.

 

"Please consider it, it's safer if we stick together" the girl smiled, earning a forced one from Deluca.

 

"Thank you by the way, for today" She spoke, before leading the others off. Deluca rolled his eyes and shook his head to Varis, who again, tackled him and started a small playful wrestling match with the human.

 

Deluca sighed, the sunlight on his side of the island having dimmed a fair amount, placing a blue hue on everything around. This sight began making him think they should be heading back soon. But the glance he sent to the Deathgripper encouraged him to lean on him and get comfy, slightly closing his eyes until eventually he fell asleep.

 

((Hope that's all good.... Eh... In terms of timeline... was more thinking Deluca was the last to join.. Also this cavern could have been a hangout for everyone before they left))

boop!

((Yee all this sounds good so far! Now I should get to Felix's meeting with Flame and the others XD I assume he'd proabably be before Berit :P if y'all don't mind))

 

Felix's giggles echoed in a fallen, hollowed out log. He had hidden in there while his dragon Mr.Flameypants looked for him. While Felix hid... this reminded him of the day they actually first met... 

 

"Bye Ma! Gonna go eat the forest!" Felix ran out of his family's hut, eager to get started on doing... something. Nobody ever knew what Felix was up to, and it seemed nobody ever wanted to so they allowed him to do it, even if it defied the laws of everything.

While Felix's outward act was quite phsycotic, inside he just really wanted to impress. And that's why today-he was gonna hunt down a dragon. Okay maybe not hunt down, but ya know get a fresh claw or a tooth and be very prideful on the find. But things didn't turn out that way. Instead he was able to find a whole new adventure without having to harm him or the dragon.

He walked for miles, near the beach on their village's island. Sandy, nice and tainted with a... dragon? A large typhoomarang sat on the beach, looking wistfully out at the ocean. It didn't notice Felix until the teen was actually climbing on the dragon. Then the dragon flamed up, smoke curled out of his nostrils as it's yellow eyes caught Felix's.

"Woah! Typhomerbang... Typhonarangatang... BIG SCARY FLAMEY PANTS DRAGON!" Felix said, messing up Typhoomarage several times in the process but that didn't matter now that it was chasing him. Why? Was it angry? 

"Stop it Mr!" he screamed, a wide grin spread across his face as he ran, but he then whipped around and faced the dragon, causing the beast to stop and censored it's head to the side. 

"You know for a dragon you chase really slow," Felix commented "Maybe if you stopped your flamey pants and running out of energy then you could chase me faster... I know! How about I catch you a fish! Then we can continue our potentially fatal chase afterwards!" Felix suggested immedietly heading into the salty water and looking down-one thing nobody really knew was when he was focused he could do anything. And thus he did his first sucessful fishing catch, with his bear hands.

"Ta-da! Dinner for..." He stopped, glanced at the dragon and grinned even wider after a moment "Dinner for MR.FLAMEYPANTS!" This name did not please the dragon, so he let out a growl. "Oh don't you start with me Mr.!" he glared and held out the fish, "I caught your meal and in return I get to name you! That's the law!"

It was not the law.

But since it was free food, who was Mr.Flameypants to argue? Of course he gobbled up the fish and gave a pleased grumble and then proceeded to nuzzle Felix.

"Aww no problem buddy! WAIT!" Felix stopped. Flame gave a concerned glance, looking back and forth wondering if it was still too late to run. "Does that mean you're mine now?" along with a grin that Flame couldn't say no to.

One strange outting became an even stranger one now with Felix's monsterous dragon by his side. But sadly even Felix knew he couldn't show him off to his village... Yet. He had a plan to go and demand gold then make a chicken from said gold-but that plan went off course when one dark night he was on the beach with Flame, who was using his fire coat to keep the two of them warm. Felix was staring off into space when he heard voices! And dragon grumbling but he ignored that.

His plan to have a golden chicken may not have happened... but he did end up finding something better-people to show off Mr.Flameypants to! They too had dragons. It was a little to hard to decide what dragons and who was there-but Felix didn't care! He never cared who had what! As long as he got to show off his Flame!

"I KNOW YOU! YOU'RE FRIENDS FROM WORK!" he screamed at the group, causing all of them to jump. They all looked like they were about to take off until Flame arrived, giving an embaressed churr of greeting and a few other noises-proabably apologizing for Felix.

'Ugh not him," one said, in the darkness it was hard to tell who but it was definitly female... Felix ignored the comment and continued to smile. 

"He has a dragon doesn't he?" another voice sounded, male this time. "We could have him join,"

"Oooh yes i'd LOVE to join!" Felix nodded "And Mr.Flameypants would like to join too!"

Well nobody could ever stop Felix from doing anything, so denying his request to join was futile.

"Welcome to the team then!" another female said.

And thus Felix had joined this team of rebellious dragon riders... The end.

 

At the end of his flashback, Felix giggled. Giving away his position to Flame, who gave a "found you!" kinda rawr. While Flame's past was still a mystery to Felix, he knew that this was the dragon for him.

Hugo

Hugo walks out of the bush onto the beach. "Sorry, I wanted to explore the island a bit more, I brought a lotta berries for dinner or desert or snacks or anything really just help yourself." Hugo puts a medium sized handmade box full of berries down near the fire. "I've already eaten so I'll head to bed now. Com'n Zekrom." He headed to the small bed he made under a tree, he sat down and looked at the stars.

 

Flashback:

Hugo was hiking through the forest, exploring the woods and catergorizing the flowers he saw in his notebook. He had come here right after the academy, eager to discover new things. Curiously, he picked up a plant he hadn't seen before. "Huh. What is this?" He began to trace if with swift, steady lines in his pad when a dark shadow flashed over him. Startled, her dropped the flower and looked up. The shadow passed over again and he made out a shape backlit by the summer sun. "A dragon!" He was scared, but his curiousity got the better of him and he followed it. After tracking the dragon for several minutes, he lost it, and stopped in frustration. Suddenly, a rumbling sound came from behind him and he turned around to face a triple stryke bearing down on him. He yelped and dodged, causing the tryple strike to ram into the tree behind him.

 

He ran, listing the triple stryke's stats under his breath. "Three tails! Numbing, hallucinations, blood boiling! Stealthy! PINCERS!" He shouted as one of them narrowly missed his head. "Very fast!" He panted, out of breath. The only thing stopping the dragon from spearing him was the abundance of trees in the way. He drew his homemade-altered crossbow and kept running, trying to remember its weaknesses. "Weaknesses, weaknesses," he muttered to himself, dodging one of its tails barely. "Underbelly!" He looked over his shoulder, how would he get under it? A clicking sound occured, and he remembered that it was a warning of a tail attack. He whirled aroud as a tail came crashing down at him, singing through the air, and rolled away. The tail got embedded deep in the mud he had been stnding on, and Hugo slid beneath it's legs, using his weapon to shoot the lower belly, right between the back and belly plates. The triple stryke cried out in pain and tried to get at Hugo, but he was stuck in the mud and couldn't reach under his torso without hurting himself. It roared again in frustration and rolled onto its side in surrender.

 

After a moment, Hugo came out, sticks and leaves nestled inhis dark hair. "Huh." He smirked at the dragon. "Now that wasn't so hard." He proudly began walking away, but the dragon whined. He turned around suspiciously. What was it playing at. He huffed and turned away again, but couldn't help looking back at it's soft eyes. He sighed and went back, using his weapon to free the dragon from the hardening muck and turned away. "There!" He said over his shoulder. He was halfway back to the village when a twig snapped. He turned around to see the dragon sitting a few feet away, purring. "What are you doing?" He hissed and shoved the dragon away. "You can't come with me!" The dragon didn't budge. He huffed again. "Fine." The dragon shot a fire blast up and purred, rubbing against him eagerly. "Pfft, I guess I'm stuck with you now... " He smirked and looked around, "Now let's go heal that wound".

Mareena and Rhea

Mareena watched as everyone started to come back into the camp. Everyone except, Deluca that is. She climbed up the tree house with ease, ignoring Rhea's ladder, and sat on the roof. Jonah was still napping, Felix and his typhoomerang - she refused to even think the ridiculous name - were messing around near a log, Lilly was nearby with a small dragon trailing behind her scavenging for something, Leo was standing by Rhea watching Lilly, Rhea was watching everyone else - like she always did - and Hugo was sitting in the tall grass watching the stars with Zekrom. She sighed. The day had been long and she was tired. She slipped back down to the others, prodding Hugo and Jonah. "We built a treehouse for a reason, you know," she said with half-hearted teasing in her voice. She didn't wait for them and instead headed back to the treehouse herself to sleep. Amber tried to follow her but her wings didn't fit. Hm, maybe once thy got the other two built this on could be altered for the dragons. She took off her cape and used it as a pillow, drifting off quickly. As she slept, another memory seeped into her dreams. 

Mareena expertly spun the axe, twirling it gracefully against an imaginary opponent and practicing her attack moves. She stopped, forehead damp with sweat and brething hard. Why was she even practicing? She was already the best. 'BECAUSE I SAID SO!' she heard her father's voice in her head and sighed in exasperation. She still had to meet with Amber later that night. A creak in the wooden floor caught her attention and she spun around, throwing the axe. It laded two inches from a boy's head, embedded in a wall.

She had missed. Probably a good thing though, since she didn't think her father would be pleased if she murdered a classmate. (Assuming all the characters were enrolled in training at the academy) "Oh, it's you." She went to retrieve her axe from the wall, barely sparing a look at Jonah. "Yup," he said, "It's me." He continued on his way casually, like an axe hadn't almost speared him in the head.

She rolled her eyes and grabbed her cape from the bench, tossing it over her shoulder and following the other teenager out the door. What had he been doing. She noticed a fish hanging out of his hand, concealed in his cape. She tilted her head. What would he be doing with a raw fish? Her curiousity officially piqued, she trailed him all the way to a cave in the forest, where he dropped the fish into a hole. She wouldv'e laughed if she thought it wouldn't give her away. That was random. She imagined Jonah stashing raw fish in a hole and decided he was too laid-back to do such a thing routinely. So what was it?

A flash of white teeth appeared in the hole and her eyes widened. He was feeding a dragon! The dragon sniffed the air and she winced as it's near blind eye turned her way. Great. Jonah looked up with mild interest and spotted her. She stepped out, embarassed, and said, "Hi." The dragon growled at her lowly and a growl responded from behind her. Amber stepped out of the shadows and rested her head on Mareena's shoulder. Jonah said, "Hi." He turned slightly to the dragon and repeated, "Hi." 

"You have a dragon too," Mareena said, pointing out the obvious. "Yup. There's a whole bunch of us." He turned away, the whispering death he had fed remained in the hole, but growled at Amber as they passed by. Amber snorted at it in return and continued following Jonah. "I'll introduce you. On my way there now as a matter of fact," Jonah offered, and Mareena followed, dumbfounded. 

They reached a cave near the rock formations at the edge of their island and she took in the others. Rhea, Leo, and Lilly. She wasn't surprised Lilly had befriended a dragon, but Rhea seemed too uptight. She didn't know Leo very well. "This is Mareena and her dragon," Jonah introduced them, even though they knew at least of eachother by that point. "Wow, another one," Leo remarked, and Rhea added with a motherly smile, "Welcome to the club."

.................................

Rhea smiled as Hugo approached and grinned at Berit as well. "Thanks you guys." She turned to Lilly. "Hey Lilly, how about you come back now, it's getting late." Speaking of which, where's Deluca? she thought to herself, and sent Dunestar after him. She took a handful of berries and followed Mareena up to get to sleep.

peeps

((I have to say i'm enjoying seeing people's flashbacks on how Jonah would act XD))

 

Jonah opened an eye, seeing Mareena above him.

"We built a treehouse for a reason, you know," she prodded him with a smile.

"But where's the fun in sleeping indoors?" He asked, closing his eye again. He hadn't moved for a while, bugs were starting to crawl around him-one bee in particular landed on his nose. The bugs fleed though when he shifted a bit. Echo, sensing that they should get moving, nudged her rider and gave a warm grumble. Jonah guessed she meant to go inside, but he then remembered they hadn't eaten for a bit.

"Yea you're right, we can go fish or something... Maybe there's berry bushes?" he suggested, slowly rising to his feet and stretching. 

Echo shook her head. That was not what she meant, but food did sound good now that the idea was up in the air. Plus it seemed everyone was sleeping.

"Lets go then," Jonah waved the dragon to follow and he sauntered down to the beach.

Lilly grinned at Rhea and Leo

Lilly grinned at Rhea and Leo "As you wish!" she bounded off to get ready to sleep. She wistled to Erson to follow. she started thinking of the day they had meant.

 

"One for me, one for grandma, one for me, one for grandma, one for-" She had glanced up to see somthing shiny in the ocean only but five feet in front of her. she dropped her berries and crept up to the ocean side. she looked around. Grr! She couldn't get close enough! She went into the water, hopeing to find the sourse of the shiny. She walked even farther out. Out of no where her foot was pulled from under her! she quickly swam to the servise and took a gulp of air before turning around to see that the shiny was a dragon! And laughing at her! 

 

She glared at the beast before heading to land. Although, she couldn't help but smile and let out a small giggle. She found laughter in the stupidest times sometimes. She made it to land, then looked back to see the dragon look at her, almost with sad eyes. She couldn't help herself, she went back into the water and motioned for the reptile to come closer. and he did! she started stroking his scales and observing his hide.

 

He had Blue fins with a lighter green body and a nareow head. He had a long flipper like tail and small silver eyes. She loved him. "I," she started "Shall call you Erson!" She continued palying with the dragon for a while, before she heard movement in the woods near by. She quickly gave Erson a quick kiss and started heading back.

 

When she got back to the beach she saw Jonah. She gave him a smile and rushed over to hug him "Jonah!" she said as she tackled him "what are you doing here? I thought you had to work all day?"

 

"well, " Jonah started "I found a way out of it, were you with a dragon?" He asked as if it was a normal thing to do. Lilly trusted him though, and he had obviously seen her, so she told him. "Okay yes I was, But please don't tell anyone!" she looked up at him pleadingly. He made a zipping motion over his lips "Not, a, word." He told her "Can I see it?"

 

............

Leo smiled as Lilly walked away "So, Rhea," He begain "You got a little somthing stuck in your air" He grinned at her, before sticking a small twig in her hair and running off, almost for his life.

 

(Also, is it like, a little bit before sundown?)
