the fact that I  could feel anything, even the strange wetness and hard walls of my prison was a relief after that. The crushing nothingness that i had drifted in for so long. I died. I died to the cliché isekai-inator truck-kun. The fact that I was in what had to be an egg cemented it, I had  been reincarnated. I don't known what I am I mean I can barely move I'm in a frisken egg, I can't see and I'm definitely not human but aside from that I have no idea what I am. I could be anything, a wasp, a snake, one of the like twenty different kinds of martian from the Sean Connor of Mars books, or maybe a dragon, oh oh mabe I'm a valstrax. That would be awesome just jetting around everywhere with biological rocket engine wings powered by raw dragon energy. 

 

Not sure how long it's been but I'm pretty sure I have at least four limbs and tail, I'm not sure about the tail but I think I have one, so mabe I am a wyvern. I think my forelimbs are wings but I'm not a 100% on that. Mabe I'm a rathlos or five forbid a gypceros. I don't want to be a poisonous rubber chicken monster. Please let me be something pew.

 

I'm starting to hear some kind of chirping noises. And now I'm even more confused about what I am now. Am I a bird. If I am can it at lest be either a raptor or a Corvus. Being a raptor would at least be kind of pew and a crow or raven would be kinda cool at lest.

 

it's getting kind of hot in here. Really hot but it's not pan full. what that means I don't know but... Wait am I moving I think I'm moving I'm being rolled? And now it feels like I'm sinking!

There is an explosion of light and noise and heat and I'm drowning, flailing around something click in my head and I Move on instinct.

The last thing I remember after flinging myself out of the water is the words flash before my eyes.

__________________

I'm a monster Hunter originally from the sea side village of Moga. After Cha-cha(my shakalaka companion) and I, against the guild's orders, repelled the mountain class elder dragon Ceadaus I was punished for engaging in an illegal hunt. However in recognition of the power and skill required for this feat the guild Merely demoted me and reassigned me to the mountain village Pokke, located in the Furahiya Mountains. There I quickly Rose in the hunter ranks, reaching G or master rank in only a year, in part do to my palico Nell. 
 

eventually I was called on, as many hunters were, to attack and hopefully slay or at lest repell [Redacted]And,unlike many many other hunters, Nell and I succeeded in repelling [Redacted] from Castle Schrade  into the volcanic Battleground. There [Redacted] mutated into [Redacted] an we finally Slayed the Elder Dragon. After that Nell retired to train future Palicos. 
 

the truth it he couldn't hunt monsters anymore, not after we both barely survived that thing. That hunt broke him in a way. Cha-Cha became a full guild hunter and we talked through letters. I took on one of Nell's students, a palico named Cheshire that dyed his fur purple and pink. Cheshire has been my palico ever since, in fact he's over by the fire place checking his gear as I write this. 

Currently Cheshire and I are stationed in the New World at the Seliana research outpost. we have had many adventures here, along side my handler Sasha Braus. From repelling zorah magdaros to discovering xeno'jiiva, exploring the censored frost reach and facing shara ishvalda. And it all started with the simple task of heading out to the deserted island and finding the Chiefs son by the base camp. 
I've grown a lot since those days but I will always remember the village it all started in, known for its extremely high quality honey and thriving fish market. The village on the waves, Moga.

 

Lately I've been hearing rumors about some kind of monster rampage in a village called Kamura back in the old world.

Chapter 1: tutorial

The message was still there when I woke up.

 

[SKILL: Draconic instinct;Nadder active]

        [System online: welcome player]

 

The moment I finished reading it the message Disappeared from my vision.still that answered the question of what I was and probably what world I’m in. or maybe reality is a better term. Regardless I was a deadly nadder. not my top choice for a dragon species, even from httyd, but it could probably be a lot worse.

 

The message however that... that really only could mean one thing. The Gamer Ability. The power that, depending on the version, could make someone a god in days. Or it could make their life censored. It all depended on how the system, my system, worked. But first I needed to figure out what kind of place I was in. 

 

[Quest: From small beginnings. Started  Reward: 50 exp.

Objective 1 : familiarize yourself with the      status menu.]

 

Or I could do the tutorial. Hopefully the mental command thing from the stories I vaguely remember reading work. Uhh... status. 

 

[Status Menu:

LV:1

EXP:0/100

Hp:100/100

Shots 6/6

Energy 100/100

 

STR: 5

SPD:10

AGI: 5

PER:15

LUC:5

STA:0

 

Skills:3*

Perks:2*

Messages*]

 

EXP was obviously experience, HP health points or hit points, either way it was almost assuredly a measure of my current health. Shots, again kinda obvious it’s my shot count. I’m a deadly nadder I have six shots before I’m out of fire according to httyd logic. Energy I’m not sure about.

 

[ Energy: the measure of your current stamina and hunger]

 

Oh. Ok so the system has a help function, good to know.

STR, SPD, and AGI are strength, speed, and agility. Right?

 

[ Correct]

 

PER and LUC are perception and luck?

 

[ Correct]

 

STA?

 

[ STA stands for stat and represents unassigned status points]

 

Ok,can I have some kind of context for how good my stats are ?

 

[ A Stat of 5 is equivalent to that of an average human. A stat of 10 is compared to a high tear human athlete]

 

So a PER of 15 is about one and a half times the perception of an expert human tracker. Makes sense that nadders are in the tracker class.

 

[Quest: From small beginnings. Update 

Objective 2: familiarize yourself with the skill menu.]

 

Skills.

 

[ Skill menu: 

Skill: draconic instincts; nadder: you possess the basic instincts of a deadly nadder and are capable of understanding and utilizing the innate abilities of your species.LV1/1

 

Skill: spine throw: your tail is lined with large, paralytic spines that can be detached and flung via specialized muscle groups. This skill represents your ability to effectively use this ability.LV1/50 Base damage: 10 

 

Skill: Magnesium fire breath: as a deadly nadder you possess an incredibly hot 3100 degree Celsius magnesium based fire breath that can be fired six times before needing to recover. This skill effects how long a single shot can last and how deftly you can control your flame. At your current skill LV you can sustain a shot for 1 second.LV1/100 Base damage :50 per second. ]

 

That’s... I ... I remember how fast stormfly slagged that sea stack but dang. I could probably kill a person with a single shot. I guess the deadly in deadly nadder is a lot more deserved than I thought.

 

[ Quest: from small beginnings: update.

Perks.

 

[Perk menu:

Perk: Gamer Ability:grants access to the system, prevents panic and heightened emotional states from imparting judgment, and converts conventional injuries into lose of Hp.

Wait no inventory. Really? censored. Well I’d better find out where I am.

 

You know what, I’m what a day old. “Yawn” it can wait I’m going back to sleep.

 

Zzzz....

 

 

 

 

 

An. If you want to ask spinetale something just post in this thread with "message spinetale" same if you want to give him something. But if it's something to powerful/ broken/offensive then it won't get to him.

Chapter 2 dragon kindergarten

I woke up to something nudging my side. Then I heard something wet slap down in front of me. When I finally pried my eyes open I saw another nadder that was clearly an adult in front of me. They had primarily  dark blue colors across there scales and they were acting almost like they we’re trying to keep themselves from jumping around from excitement.  

 

Suddenly I realized how hungry I was and the fact that I could smell everything. I remember having a good sense of smell when my nose wasn’t clogged as a human but this, this was on a hole other level. And  among the countless different smells something close to me smell absolutely fantastic in the same way well cooked Salmon does and with out thinking my heat shot down and i barely registered the  sight of a hole salmon before it was in my mouth. 

 

[energy 50/100>100/100]

 

I barely registered it as I scarfed the fish the size of my head down. The other nadder, one my new one instincts said was female, began hoping back and forth towards the opening of the little cave I only now realized we were in while making weird noises. It kinda sounded like this. 

 

“Uptops vola ickle warmadi-tootsies”

 

The fact that some parts of the sounds sounded a little like words was immensely strange. What was stranger was that some of the maybe words were vaguely familiar. 

 

The other nadder repeated itself agin “Uptops vola ickle warmadi-tootsies”.

I swear I know that.. language. But I’ve never heard it before. Maybe something I read?

 

Read. From a story I read “warmadi-tootsies” it sounded like the made up language from some kid’s book. 

Wait. Kid’s book, httyd was originally a book series and the dragons in it could talk. Just in dragonesse. 

 

[skill: language proficiency: dragonesse. Acquired] 

 

Well that conforms it. This isn’t the movie verse, but it’s not the book verse either. The movie dragons were drastically different from the ones from the books. So I’m in a crossover between the book and movie verse or httyd. No if this is a crossover verse I can’t assume it’s just the two versions of how to train your dragon. 

 

Apparently the adult nadder had got tired of my musings as they darted forward and picked my up by what I assume was my crest because I didn’t feel there grasp. They carried my out of the cave and for the first time I got a look at where I was at. 

 

The island, I knew it was an island because I could smell the sea from all around, look pretty much exactly like the island from the gift of the night furry. Probably because it was, or at least this words equivalent. There were other dragons of all sizes and colors scattered across the place. Most of them seemed to be the first six dragons we saw in the first movie but there were a few others I saw as well. Most adult dragons seem to just be watching their offspring playing around the rocky field. 

 

The dragon that I was fairly sure was my new mother pushed me forward and said something in what I now know to be dragonesse “go larks”. I’m pretty sure that meant go play. I guess it would help me learn how to dragon in a way so why not. Besides ,I thought looking at a low hanging stalag tight, I can finally test out that Theory I had. Then some bratty little monstrous nightmare ran up, tail slapped me, and ran off.

 

Oh it’s so on.

Chapter 3 little things

[through training SPD and AGI have increased by 1]

 

After I finally caught up to the nightmare and tackled them for daring to hit me, I figured it was time to learn how to use my fire and see how long it took to recharge my shots. Thankfully my [draconic instincts: nadder] made it somewhat easy to find the right muscles to clench in my throat to release the gas into my mouth. Igniting it took longer to understand. Eventually I figured out I needed to click my back teeth together to create a spark. Now it’s time to put all that together. Gas. Spark. Fwosssh. 

 

The stream of fire that shot out of my mouth, and near instantly made the stone floor I directed it to glow a soft red, was a expected but still a little jarring. The second set of eyelids that instinctively slammed shut weren’t. 

 

Almost as soon as they closed they opened again, only covering my eyes until my flame went out. It was surprising but it kind of made sense. My fire was based of magnesium and therefore extremely bright. Having a set of biological welding goggles in the form of secondary eyelids makes a lot of sense but it is something else different from the “cannon” of httyd. 

 

In contrast using my tail spike against one of the walls of the cove walls was exactly like I expected. I just simply flicked my tail in the direction of my target (a particular discolored portion of the wall) and the three spines I wanted to fire struck the wall not far of from the mark. It almost felt like when I use to throw nerf darts at a target as a kid. 

 

After actually trying out my abilities I figured it was time to test my theory. Approaching the stalagmites that hung from an overhang I managed to find one that was just about down to my height. Getting under it I tried to maneuver it over my neck and shoulders. I shoved up against it trying to find some kind of pressure point or nerve cluster or something. I remembered that both toothless and stormfly had hand new abilities after having force applied to somewhere around that region. Stormfly gaining a more powerful spike throw and toothless gaining his split dorsal spines and potentially his glowing form. Both times, in two different dragon species the dragons in question gained a power boat of some kind. Suddenly I felt the rock push something in and I suddenly felt as though I had been stiff all over and suddenly had all my muscles loosened at once.

 

[perk gained : enhanced potential]

 

I immediately opened the perk menu to read the entry.

 

[perk: enhanced potential: dragons possess a special cluster of nerves along their spine. If these nerves are depressed with sufficient force the the dragon in question will have their full potential made available to them.        PER growth rate increased by 25%     SPD growth rate increase by 15% 

AGI growth rate increased by 15% 

STR growth rate increased by 10%

???? Development chance increased by 25 %]

 

That was better than I’d hoped for. But I wonder what that hidden thing I had a better chance to develop is. Regardless today has been very informative. But it’s getting late. Chasing after that nightmare must have taken a lot longer than I thought. 

 

 

My new mother had caught something strange for dinner. It looked like something from one of gobber’s stories. Most of the fish looked like pictures of tuna I had seen but the fish’s head had a minni elephant trunk and tusks. Plus it was bigger than a seal. It looked really weird but we split it between us.

 

It tasted fantastic.

Chapter 4 time flys

It had been over a month since my rebirth. I’ve grown rather quickly, to use a term from that httyd mmo i once played I’ve grown to small wing or teenage size. And I have found the ultimate joy.

 

 

Wind wiped past me as I shifted my wings just right and shot around the corner and passed ember (the monstrous nightmare that had tagged me on the first day of my new life). My claws scratched out a gash in a sea stack as I passed. “Oh no you don’t” she shouted as seconds later she scored the same sea stack. 

 

My ability to understand dragonesse had increased as drastically as my size. 

 

“See you at the finish line” I cackled seeing the two trees on the top of a sea stack that served as such.

Ohhhoh you’re not winning this time. Ember called from my left. Just as I was about to grab the vine that served as the end tape ember appeared from above and snagged it at the last second. 

 

Both of us shot through the trees and then slowed as we circled back and landed on the sea stack. “Hahahehe I finally beat you spines” Ember laughed “guess you not the fastest after all”. “You just got lucky” I scoffed “after all I’ve never lost before”. 

 

And I hadn’t, between my SPD of 26 and AGI of 15 I was the best flyer my age here. And I had the skill to prove it.

 

[skill: flight: LV 39: most dragons possess the power of flight as a nadder you are no different. At the current level speed is =SPDx2mph and pitch/turn distance =mph-AGI feet]

 

I could fly 52 miles per hour at top speed and and turn 90 degrees in just under 40 feet. I was very fast. The only way Ember could have possibly beat me was dumb luck.

 

“You’re just mad you lost at your own game spinetale”Ember gloated.

 

Spinetale, that was my new name. It was weird at first but It wasn’t like I remembered my old name. And yes I created dragon racing almost as soon as I could fly. It Caught very fast. Turns out dragons were very competitive. 

 

“About time someone beat you” “finally lost huh”. The next dragon to pass through the finish both spoke.

 

Hidari and Tadash  a green/purple zippleback the same age as Ember and me. Each head was a separate person but they shared a nerve system and could think to each other. Why there names sounded Japanese despite the definitely northern climate I don’t know. 

 

Like Ember we had become friends in the month since are hatching. The four of us probably run the course at least twice a day. And today was no different. The four of us loved flying the most out of all the others are age and we took every chance we could to push how far or fast we could go.  

 

 

“What’s that?” “you see that speck over there?” Hidari and Tadash asked at the same time, looking out to sea away from the island.  “Let me look” I said and turned to do just that. 

 

 

Out at sea, so far off that only my PER of 35 let me see it somewhat clearly. Looking like a cross between a Viking longboat and a European Galion.

 

There was a ship.

I'm really loving it! You're doing a great job! :D

 

I've finally thought up a message! Not a question though, hope that's ok

 

Message Spinetale: Hi Spinetale! It's been great watching your progress! (I know that sounds kinda creepy, sorry, please don't panic.) Just thought I'd better warn you: you and your dragon friends may be really powerful, but please don't go after that ship, especially not just the four of you, it's too risky. Go warn the older dragons, they'll know what to do. - Ginger

Interlude:hunters

Interlude: hunters 

 

Dragon hunting was a dying business. Erect knew it, his crew knew it. Heck the world government knew it. They were going extinct, the number of nests and nomadic flocks were growing fewer and fewer. Still the world nobles would pay a small fortune for a single dragon’s preserved corpse. And if they could bring back a live one they’d pay that plus thrice it’s weigh in gold.  That meant as long as someone could bring in even something small as a terrible terror back alive then that person would be set for a most of their life . 

 

Still, bring in a dragon was no easy task but Eret son of Eret was an expert in hunting the beasts. Dragons were smart but they were still just animals, only as dangerous as a sea king. The only exceptions were the big ones and Eret knew enough to leave them alone, despite the incredibly vast fortune one of them would bring.  

 

Still dragons were rare and hunting them was costly. If this trip didn’t pan out then He might be in trouble.

The ship didn’t look like anything from httyd. It looked more advanced than that. Manly do to what I’m pretty sure are cannons on it’s deck.

Ummmm thank you? You’re right though challenging a ship that,at least with my eyes, clearly has CANNONS is probably not a good idea.  

 

“We need to get Rukia” I whisper.

“What?” Asked Ember. “We need to to get Rukia!” I shout. 

 

Rukia, she’s the closest thing to an alpha dragon that the flock has. She’s a titan wing deadly nadder and probably the strongest dragon here.

 

“Why?” “What for” Hidari and tadash asked together. I launched off and started heading back. “That thing is trouble” I said as I flew back to the main island. “What did you see” Ember asked as she started after me. 

 

 

“Rukia you need to see this”  I called out the moment I saw the titan wing. “This better be important, I’m trying to deal with this right now” she snapped not even looking as she gesturing to a nest that had been seemingly been ransacked by a group of terrors. “This better be important spinetale.” “It is i replied “there’s a ship”.

 

She paused and turned to me. “Where?” She growled out. “It’s off the east side of the island, it’s far off but it’s definitely headed this way” I answered. “I thought you should know” I finish.  “Rukia! There’s a ship!” My mother called from behind me as she landed. 

 

“I know, your son told me Seaskimer” Rukia said. “Gather the young, we need to move” she ordered. “Right, come on spinetale we need to leave” mother said. “What do you mean leave?” I asked. “The island” she barked. 

 

The next few minutes we a blur. Mother and the other adult dragons worked with Rukia to get everyone to the center field of the island. 

 

“Everyone!” Rukia shouted “a human ship has been spotted coming from the east. I need volunteers to slow it down or sink it while everyone else evacuates to the west!”  “Rukia!” Called a gronckIe I had see but never really met “there’s ships to the north and west as well!” At this I could tell everyone was startIng to panic. “There’s one to the south too” came a panicked cry.

Eret smiled. Things were actually going well. The flock is his crew had been circling had’t noticed until it was too late to flee without at least a few getting caught, especially with the power that Loftbrok had attend. The ability to turn your body into incredibly strong nets was perfect for this. 

 

It was time to spring the trap.

Authors note

I decided to split this chapter  into multiple parts because I want to ask the opinion of any and all who read my mess of a story. If after the interlude and pt 1 of this chapter you haven't figured it out this story is a multi cross that includes one piece. I have to ways the raid can go in my head. Path 1 stuff happens and spinetale gets out of this unscathed. Path 2 stuff happens and spinetale get a low power devilfruit. And I'm on the fence on which way to go.

You have been warned.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was chaos. 

After we realized there were ships on all sides everyone started to panic. Before I new it the, evidently dragon hunter, ships had landed. Probably over a hundred people swarmed the island. 

 

Some of them pulled things off their ships. Wagons with massive drums built into them. Then the ones that pulled the drum carts started to POUND the infernal things.

 

BOOOOM BOOOOM BOOOM BOOM . 

 

The sound was deafening. The noise swam in my skull. It was so loud my eyes throbbed with the sheer NOISE the things produced. The noise messed with my balance as I tried and failed to fly. I just crashed back to the ground the moment I took off. My vision blurred from the pounding pain in my head as I struggled to even stand. I saw a gronckle get shot down they drunkenly tried to fly away. Other were luckier, the ones farther away from the drums, managed to get away, flying of in different directions. 

 

 

Boom boom boom boom boom 

 

 

Someone needed to stop those drums.  With that in mind I started to shakily stumble towards them.  My wavering vision focused as much as I could manage on my target as I limped forward.  

 

Fire flung from my maw, and it tore through the animal hide drums as the two hunters the were playing the dove to the side.

 

[5/6]

 

With the closest drums gone my head immediately began to clear, which made the sudden striking pain that erupted from my jaw all the more painful.

 

[Hp 100>70]

 

One of the hunters had used my blind spot and taken the drum hammer to my jaw and I tasted the copper twang of blood. I stagers back and spat out a piece of a tooth. 

 

The hunter reared back for a second swing but I leapt back Dodging the hammer. 

 

 

On pure reflex flame once again flew.

 

[4/6]

 

[Enemy defeated: 50 EXP gained.]

I barely noticed the net. 

 

 

I didn’t feel the arrow, dart, or what ever it was beyond the feeling of pressure.

 

 

 

 

All I know it that my legs don’t work right now.

Interlude rukia

Rukia grimaced as she used the Alpha’s will to make a group of hunters freeze long enough to let her take them down. 

 

She winced from the spike of pain that came with using the power at a level she couldn’t really sustain for the fifth time in just a few minutes. The drums weren’t making it any easier either. 

 

Wait... one of the drums had stopped. She turned to look and saw the kid that had first spotted the hunters ship frozen in front of a burning drum cart and a scorched.... oh ....... oh poor kid.

 

She swore to herself that she would do the best she could to help him cope after the raid. If they both made it, that was. She had never been faced with a hunter fleet this large before. 

 

As if to confirm her fears another hunter raced forward and...............what!?!

 

The hunter’s hand stretched and wove together and formed a net that came down on the younger nadder. Then before she could react the human fired one of their crossbows at the poor kid and he almost immediately  collapsed. 

 

Damm it!  She wasn’t close enough to reach him with out abandoning the hatchlings that had been born last. 

 

She could only watch as the net handed man dragged the unconscious nadder away.

Chapter 6 a fortuitous reward

I came two ,to the sensation of swaying.

 

What? 

 

Oh, The raid. 

I had.....I had... I! .........................

 

And after.  

 

I must have been captured. 

I couldn’t see, there was something covering my eyes. Going from the feel and smell it was made of leather. It rapped around my face, covering my eyes and holding my mouth shut. 

 

Shift slightly i felt a collar around my neck and legs and heard the sound of chains rattling lightly. 

 

My nose was filled with the smell of wood, metal, sweat, and salt water. Simple logic said boat. 

 

I was captured, changed, blindfolded, and I had ki... I had... I had......... that

..th. Huh. Thanks for the concern? I think it’s a little late though. 

 

Or mabe there some kind of lag.

 

All right. 

 

Just do it.

 

 

Come on do it spinetale.

 

Tch It probably won’t even hurt that ba...

 

“Snap”

 

“RAAAAWWWWAAAAAaaaHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAASSsssssssAHAHaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Holy shimata” I spat from unfamiliar lips

“That was worse than being hit by truck-kun.” 

 

I didn’t shift all the way. I couldn’t, not through the sheer PAIN of the transformation. And so I was in a kind of hybrid form between human and dragon. My legs were still that of a nadder, but they were smaller. Small enough to slip out of the shackles. My head was human but my spine crest stuck out from my head. I found that out with my human arms. Well not completely human. My skin, the human parts, still had scales, they were just skin tone and super small. I still had my tail but my wings were gone. 

 

Which means no flying. At least I can see now.  But I that wasn’t exactly quite so someone is probably going to come for me. 

 

I was in a cage made of some kind of green metal with a chain attached to a collar around my neck. But it was a collar built for a dragon, not a human.

 

 

 

It took a bit to wiggle the neck collar around my crest. It was much easier to slide out between the cage bars. 

 

I was definitely on a ship. If the slow swaying didn’t prove that the gently curving wood plank walls did.  There were four other cages in the, Area, deck, which ever. But all of them were empty.  Which means that at least some of the flock got out. 

 

There were also some barrels and crates that I ducked behind just as a hunter came stomping down the stairs. Just as he turned to look at the cage I was in, I rushed forward and slammed into his back.

 

I rapped my arm around his neck, grabbed his head with my other hand, and pinned his arms with my legs. He might have been a Viking warrior but I was a dragon in human form with a STR of 15 and I had a good grip. 

 

After he passed out i checked to make sure he was still breathing. Thankfully he was. 

 

 

[enemy incapacitated EXP: 100/200 > 125/200]

 

So the system recognizes non Lethal victories. Thank Thor for that.

 

 

 

[energy 20/100 > 60/100]

 

After snagging a few fish from one of the barrels I headed up the staircase. 

 

 

And I saw.

 

something.

Chapter 7

That couldn’t exist.

 

There was no way something like that could exist, and yet it did.

 

 

 

 

When I climbed the stairs to the top deck I saw about what I’d expected, the deck of a large sail boat with twin masts,a few cages made of that green metal,a set of two blista, and made 10 hunters milling about on deck. 

 

 

 

Normal, well normal by httyd standards. The drum carts and cannons weren’t but that could probably be explained by it being an au mix of the book and movie versions and maybe being in the future by a time period or two. 

 

As horrible as the drums were, they made since. Dragons were disoriented by certain kinds of noise. So a device to take advantage of that makes a lot of since. 

 

 

Blista already were a thing in httyd and cannons weren’t that strange. So What was strange then. 

 

 

I don’t know, maybe the impossibly tall seer cliff face made of some red stone that stretched to high I wondered if I could even fly over it. Or maybe that it stretched of to either horizon for as far as my, extremely good, eyes could see.  Or that despite it’s insanity it seemed to somehow be natural.

 

 

 

 

 

Nope nothing weird at all here. Not at all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get a grip. You can’t afford to gock at what ever the heck that is later.

 

 

 

There were other ships in formation along side the one I was on. And all of them were sailing Toward the damm thing. 

 

 

Two hunters started to come closer and I ducked around and behind a stack of something or another that had a tarp over it.

 

 

 

 

 

“Do with your share of the fortune? Not sure, maybe I’ll get my own boat and go after ol Roger’s treasure myself and become the pirate king.

 

 

Hahahahahahaha, yeah right like I’d ever willingly sail into that death trap. Na I plan on getting a nice place on some, warm, quiet little island and”.................

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roger’s treasure, pirate king, massive frick off wall, duckling one piece.

 

I wasn’t in httyd with a bit of extra. 

I was in fricking One Piece with httyd splashed in for dessert.

 

 

One Piece, a Shonen, a world where people can cut mountains in half and any Joe smo could eat a fruit and get busted powers at the cost of never swimming again. A world where you could sail a boat on clouds! 

 

 

 

That meant that red cliff was the red line.  The only real content on the planet that literally rapped around the entire freaking world.   

 

 

This made things harder. But at lest I could pass myself if as a Zoan devil fruit user if I was seen in my hybrid form. 

 

 

It also means I can learn BS super martial arts that let me have different superpowers. But first I had to escape and find either find a way back to the flock or at least an abandoned island.

 

Veeehhhh what was that. It feels like something just looked at my SOUL.

Why did I think that in all caps.

 

Gah focus. Existential dread later. 

 

I need to know if they caught any one else.

Warning this chapter has depictions of vague mental health  issues and mentions Of death.

 

 

 

 

I can’t believe I forgot how useful hands were.  Probably because I didn’t have them for a long time when I was in...

 

 

 

And then I was born as something that didn’t have them.  Still having hand and my new skill  made investigating the ship unseen much easier, that and not being a large dragon.

 

[skill: sneaking: lv3.

There are many kinds of stealth, this kind is dedicated to not being seen at all costs, consequently if you’re seen using it than it will look extremely suspicious. But if you want to go somewhere with no one seeing you at all than it’s the way to go.]

 

The ship I was on didn’t have any others from the flock in it. So it was time to check the other ships. 

 

I hadn’t shifted again and thus still couldn’t fly. Nor could I kick the air in some fancy way that made it briefly solid. But I hade a SPD of 26 and an AGI of 15. 

 

And the hunters weren’t really paying attention, despite the noise I made earlier.

And so I faced the ship next to the one I was on and started running.

 

My foot planted on the railing of the ship and I pushed.

 

 

 

I cleared the maybe 80 feet to the next ship and landed in a roll that took me behind a conveniently placed pile of crates. I paused, and listened. It didn’t seem like the hunters on this ship saw me.

 

I slipped around crates,barrels the mast of the ship and even the bars of the cages on deck. Sneaking gaining another level in the process. The cages were also empty. Good.

 

 

Getting below deck was just as easy. 

What I saw wasn’t.

 

The gronckle I saw fall during the raid was held here. But opening the cage would help him. I don’t know how I didn’t smell it. Even on the other ship. 

 

Damn them!

 

DAMM THEM!!

 

There were some cloth tarps and things in this ship’s hold, unlike in in the one i was in. Not that I really needed it. I pooled the gas in my throat and.... 

The Stench of chard flesh and bone pile of ash in front of me.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What was I doing. There was no one from the flock here.

 

 I need to check the other ships.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

 

 

In the end I only found a few terrors in birdcages that I barely had to pry the locks of and  two others like that gronckle, a orange red nightmare, and a aquamarine and yellow nadder.             

I couldn’t do anything thing for them now.

 

 

If I had actually trained instead of goofing off with the others I could have stop this. 

 

The terrors flew off the moment they could. I don’t know where to. If I can’t smell the flock there’s no way they could. 

 

 

And I can’t smell the flock. That means we’re, I’m to far to fly back. 

 

As if I could.

 

 

I’m a freaking gamer. I have one of the most busted op powers out there. The only reason I couldn’t stop that raid the moment I saw the hunter ship was because I was playing at being a ordinary dragon. 

 

But I’m not. 

I can’t go back.

I let this happen. 

I treated this like a game

 

 

I need to get stronger.

What the freaking heck happened. We had 6 live dragons and 3 dead in decent condition.  We were in the las leg of the Journey back.  How the helheim did we lose that damm nadder and those terrors.

 

The raid already went bad enough. That titanwing alpha nadder had some kind of power that made it feel like his will was being crushed when it used it on him and his men.  Plus it and a few other dragons weren’t stopped by the drums. And in turn those dragons destroyed the drums! Even Loftbrok’s devil powers were only useful once. And the nadder he caught had somehow escaped, knocked out one of his men, and freed the terrors. Son of a half rotten bridge troll's pet rat.

 

 

Still,The three dragon corpses would sell for a  Fortune but not as much as the live nadder alone would. 

 

Still even with just the three dead ones he’d still turn a large profit.

Perk: supernatural speed. For reaching a SPD of 50 you gain the capacity to utilize your extreme speed in supernatural ways. Unlocks the ability to learn techniques that require extraordinary speed. ]

 

I’ve been focusing on my speed. That and my were dragon shapeshifting.

 

 

 

 

 

It still hurts.

 

 

 

 

 

But it’s to useful to ignore. The higher my skill in it the faster and easier it is to transform.   

 

It still hurts.

 

 

 

I’ve also got a lot faster.  

 

Like the frog man from Kung fu hustle said, in martial arts speed is everything,

 

Especially supernatural martial arts. And now the system says I’m fast enough. That perk, supernatural speed. I can learn to do it now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In one piece there are these Martial arts techniques that I think are called the vaulted powers. The most basic of them is called Soru or shave. It’s also the only one with a cannon instruction. 

 

Kick the ground 10x in an instant. 

 

Do it right and you get super speed. By one piece standards. 

 

 

Now I should be fast enough.

[skill: soru. Attained. Move at extraordinary speeds in short bursts by striking the ground 10 times in an instant. Unfortunately at your skill level and PER you develop tunnel vision and have an extremely hard time stopping where you want, or with any grace.LV1/50]

That could have gone better.

 

 

 

 

It still hurts.
