Heather

She watched Robin for a minute then sighed to herself. Communication really was the best way to solve problems. She looked over at Sunset and Scorpion. Would she, or would she not? She glanced back at Wrath and Brick. They had nothing against her so... why not? She could pretend like she hadn't heard what they had been talking about, like she couldn't tell their tension around Robin from their expressions. She glided over to them and they paused conversation immediately.

'How you doing?'

Wrath stayed silent and turned his head to Brick, who was watching him. Then Brick let out a choke suddenly, startling her, and said 'fine. We're- both, fine.'

She tipped her head, 'you sure? You look tense.' Just a hint to the fact she knew. Wrath even flinched slightly... wow. If really was bad. 
When neither of them responded she said, 'you should go and talk to Robin. I know, everything. And communication is the best thing to do about it, okay?'

'But he hates me now!' Wrath hissed, 'he thinks that I hate Sunset, he thinks I'm unfaithful but I'M NOT! I just lashed out and-'

'He did the same thing, Wrath. And so did you Brick,' she said, eyeing up the red dragons. 
'I-' Brick started but cut off for no reason she could see. 
'TALK to him. That's all I'm going to say.'

And then she glided off again. Robin had been looking at her she realised, quieting off his conversation.

And then he saw Brick slowly edging towards him and winced, quite definitely guessing what had happened. She glided closer as the 4 met, hoping to stop it if any drama erupted.

Sunset

Sunset craned her neck to see Wrath and Brick. Remembering that he didnt trust her, she established that she should just let him go on with that. She turned her gaze back, although her eyes shined with hurt before she fully turned back, remembering how harsh Wrath had been. She went back to her studying, hoping none of them had seen that change of expression.

‘Princessy SandWing’ —Wrath, suspicious very

Robin just stared at Wrath. He didn't know how long.

'Hey,' Fawn said. Robin could feel his eyes narrow in the simple presence of the 2 'SkyWings'. He was starting to think of Brick as a SkyWing too, him and Fawn the only MudWings here. The only ones of his real troop. Stop. It. Robin. He hissed to himself, mouthing the words but not saying them out loud. 

'Hey,' he said, but it came out more untrusting then what he was trying.

 

Heather watched Robin, groaning internally. If Robin didn't accept these dragons as his friends again so much could go wrong.. she had noticed Sunset's sounded expression but left it to stay at only that, focusing only on the MudWings and SkyWings now. 
'Hey,' Wrath said, his eyes narrowing in return to Robin's and flicking his tail mid-flight. She looked at Brick. If anything he just looked... uncomfortable. Very uncomfortable.

'Hi,' Brick said quietly, zoning in on the ocean.

Scorpion gently brushed Sunset's wing again, reminding her he was there. Sunset managed a small smile, turning her head to face Scorpion. The hurt and pain was gone just as fast as it had appeared, bottled up again. She tossed her head to the sky and looked at it for a moment. "We'll make it through this. We HAVE to." She said determinely. Then she realized she still had her dagger in her claw. She slapped her head and put back in her bag pocket. She probably didnt look peaceful while holding a dagger, she realized, wincing

‘I'm sorry,' Brick said, even more quietly that she wasn't sure how she could hear it.

Robin looked at Wrath. She tipped her head in confusion and then realisation. NOT a good idea Robin! She yelled at him in her head.

'What,' Wrath asked in a low snarl.

'What?' Robin asked, noticing and backtracking on his mistake. I'm not sure that will fix it though.

'I'm- sorry too,' Robin choked out.

'Samee I'm sorry for being so evil and mind controlling your sister,' Fawn said and then meowed randomly. Robin started laughing so hard he almost fell out of the sky and even Wrath and Brick laughed. She sighed to herself, not laughing. Because it was exactly the kind of completely random thing Conker would do.

'imagine the animus meowing,' Brick said with a grin. Heather paused.

Was that Brick? It seemed unlikely, but it was. That was.. incredible in its own way.

'YES!' Fawn said, 'use magic and make him meow and then S.TAB HIM WHILE HE'S DISTRACTED!'

Heather winced. Partly because that idea didn't really sound funny to her and partly wondering what even just making a dragon meow could do to an animus' soul. You have to be careful--really careful, with magic.

Sunset focused on her map. "Let's see, Jewel Hive is complicated to traverse...but..." She said thoughtfully. She suddenly threw her dagger in the air and called it back. "Ok." She muttered to herself. Writing on the map, she started thinking again. Scorpion flew ahead to keep an eye out, with Sunset's island map of course. Sunset's ears pricked at the sound of laughter and she glanced back to see the others laughing. She smiled slightly and turned her head back to her map, staying quiet.

Sunset and Scorpion

Sunset felt an idea strike her. She fumbled in her bag and brought out a map of Pyrrhia, marking the palaces that the queens had d.ied in. Tracing it to middle of the lines, she placed the map on top and gasped in surprise. She felt her heart race. She knew where the animus would or might have already k.illed: The SilkWing/LeafWing Assembly. Sunset let out a startled gasp. If they d.ied...it would destroy Pantala's fragile balance! Who knows what would happen then? A war? 

 

Scorpion heard Sunset gasp. "Sunset?" He asked, flying back towards her. Sunset didnt met his eyes, staring at the map. Scorpion shook her shoulders lightly. "SUNSET." Scorpion said more firmly. Sunset snapped her gaze to him, worry apparent on her eyes.

Abyssal

Abyssal flew in the front, looking out for danger. And thinking. He wondered what would happen to him after all this was over. Robin would have some of his siblings at least, Heather had a place with the Rainwings, and Sunset and Scorpion would be busy helping to rebuild their tribe. But what about him? He couldn't exactly go back to the Seawings or the Nightwings. He didn't think his presence would be super welcome with the Sandwings either, despite Sunset. She would certainly try... Maybe the Rainforest? He didn't think the Rainwings would object much. But somehow, that didn't seem super appealing.

Scorpion and Sunset

"Sunset, what's wrong?" Scorpion asked. "I think i might have just found out our animus' next target." She said, frowning with the worry still in her eyes. "Wait what?" Scorpion asked. "All the targets, there in an order, look." Sunset showed him the maps, then put them together. Scorpion's eyes widened. "That's why he didnt touch the SeaWing queen, he's doing this in an order where dragons cant guess where he'll be next." Scorpion said, realization dawning on him. Sunset nodded. "If this is where he's going next, it would be a disaster." She said.

"I think...I think i might have just found out the animus' next target. And its a bad one, one that might cripple Pantala on its own. The Assembly." Sunset said. Her wings started trembling. This would be BAD if they succeeded. That could cause a war.

"If the animus got through and got rid of the Assembly, it would DESTROY Pantala's fragile state! They might be more than wordless and angry, no, they might declare WAR." Sunset said, her breathing going panicked. "If they declare war who knows how many dragon souls will suffer?!" Sunset exclaimed.

"Oh man..." Abyssal breathed. "Do you... Know his time frame?" He examined his map for a moment. "Do you think we can handle flying through the night? Just stop on the next island for an hour max and then head straight to the mainland? It seems that time could be critical now."

Abalone

Abalone watched from the shadows, making sure that the queen really died this time. After a long time in the sun, her scales were back to full strength. The dragons would be looking for the other hybrid, not her. Along with her camouflaged scales, this made her the perfect candidate to watch over. Currently, dragons hurried around, trying to save the queen. All in vain. Abalone felt a small pang from within, but the voice was keeping tight control of her mind since the encounter in the forest.

Sage

Sage was gliding in the middle of the group this time, observing the dragons around her. She noticed with a small smile that the MudWing/SkyWings were laughing, but she couldn't help but feel a stab of envy at that, she wished she could be that light-hearted at a time like this. All she could think of was that they were going to face the animus, avenging Dawnbreaker, and missing home, and telling herself she wasn't going to let the animus take anyone else from her. But she noticed Sunset, Scorpion and Abyssal were talking in worried voices, looking at the map. Sage angled her wings to fly over to them.

"Is something wrong?" She asked, then realized that wasn't the best question. "Besides, you know... Everything." She added with a small wince.

Chestnut

He found himself awake on an uncomfortable leaf-covered floor, chains around his talons and tail and a strange collar around his neck, keeping him from even moving. Everything rushed back to him immediately; the guards carrying him away, the Queen struggling, dying... He managed to twist his head around, flattening his ears so they didn't get stuck in the collar. Firefly was beside him, strange horse-shoes that covered her whole talon which were covered in chains. She didn't have a collar around her neck though, just chained talons. She turned and looked away from Chestnut, so he could see the gash in her arm. She was crying, and he couldn't help but start to do the same.

'I tried to help..' Firefly whispered.

'They didn't let you heal the Queen?' he asked in response, it half shocked him but he half expected it on his destroyed inside.

'No silly, I tried to help you.. and when they didn't believe me they thought I had helped k.ill Seqoia with my fire...'

k.ill her? She couldn't have... she couldn't have really...

Firefly bit back another sob and choked on it. Her wings were shivering and he tried to lift his own, only to find chains weighing them down.

'Did she..' he said, so quiet he could barely hear himself with flattened ears.

'She told me.. she tried- she tried to help.. she tried to help me! She said that it was time for her passing and that she would've d.ied sooner or later and not to start a war because of it and-' Firefly gulped down a breath of air, spilling out bottles' worth of tears. 
'Chestnut, the assembly is tommorow. And Princess Hazel doesn't want to be Queen. But if she doesn't, Bellodana will be. Chestnut WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!' 
Chestnut didn't know what to say. Surely they hadn't agreed for Bellodana to be Queen?

'Firefly...' he murmured, pulling his head back in the collar.

'I know what you're going to say. We can't. We're stuck here.' the SilkWing let out a hiss over the last word.
 

But his mind couldn't rid of what he had been thinking about since he woke up. That flash in Caprea's mother's eyes. It was too familiar.

'She was being controlled,' he said quietly.

'What? Who?' she asked, a growl edging her words.

'Caprea's mum, that- that flash in her eyes- It was the same as... as Abalone's,' he managed.

Caprea stared at him.

'It's like an undeveloped Othermind. It's getting inside of people's heads and wiping out the Queens.. and then making everybody pick the new Queen of THEIR choosing..'

'A Queen who they're controlling?'

'Firefly if so they won't listen. Bellodana WON'T LISTEN to Sequoia's last message.

'So what about Hazel?! What about US? What if it gets in OUR heads?!' 
He stared at her...

'Then all chaos will break loose,' he muttered.

Sage

Multiple shades of alarmed green spread across Sage's scales in jagged stripes.
"Oh." She gasped.
Her mind was buzzing with questions. Where was the animus attacking? He was still using assassins, right? Is he attacking the queens? Has he attacked the queens? But Sage tried to quell her fear. Were they really going to face the animus sooner than she thought? Though her wings ached at the prospect of flying all night, she would do whatever it took. For Dawnbreaker, and everyone else this coward animus had killed with innocent dragons' claws.

"Oh three moons, this is bad, this is bad, this is REALLY really bad." Sunset said. She felt her animus magic causing a headache as she worried about that and stopped focusing on keeping the wild magic at bay. Her tail swished in panic. Her wings kept trembling at the thought of another war, one with their continental friends.

Scorpion saw Sunset panicking and gently brushed her wing, surprised to find it trembling. "Sunset, calm down, please." Scorpion said, trying to calm her. But he knew what she was thinking about: the War of SandWing Succession and how hard it had been on them all. "SUNSET." Scorpion snapped his claw in front of her snout, making Sunset twitch. "Oh three moons." Scorpion muttered.

"Of course this would happen, going for the Assembly would destroy and make Pantala weak. Gahhh i should have sent a protection spell over to them." Sunset said, feeling her headache get worse. Scorpion had backed off, but she couldnt even BEGIN to think of what would happen if the animus suceeded. "What if its one of our dragons? That would be awful if they saw that, it would definately cause problems if not a war!" Sunset groaned.

Sunset winced at the headache, now making itself clear that it was a bad one. She nodded wordlessly and sighed. "STOP panicking Sunset." She thought. She was so scared. The War of SandWing Succession had been catastropic. She forced her wings to stop trembling. She had friends by her side to help her take this animus down. She just had to let them help. She kept her gaze down, though, still feeling lots of doubts.

"No, its my own magic being a problem." Sunset said. She forced it down again and sighed. "It acts like a wild beast sometimes." She admitted. Animus magic was always considered cool and awesome, but it really wasnt. It was like a chained beast in your body, waiting to be unleashed. And without checking, her magic could be dangerous. She took in a deep breath, forcing her magic down all the way.

"Your own magic?" Scorpion echoed, trying to keep an expression of worry off of his face. "Yea, you got a problem with that?" Sunset asked, a little snappy from trying to force her magic back down. "Yeesh, I'm just wondering exactly how much more powerful your magic has gotten over the years." Scorpion asked. "Its strong enough. Strong enough to give me headaches when i dont pay attention to it." Sunset said. She took in another deep breath and exhaled slowly, like her animus magic was tempting her.

Sunset shook her head. "I dont know what you could do." She said. Her animus magic tried to bubble back up so she forced it back down. "Dont think about what will happen if you let it go, DO NOT." She muttered. The headache was still there, but she tried to ignore it. She was a WARRIOR, for three moons, she needed to start acting like it. But...she sighed. "Apparently old memories DO haunt for a while..." She muttered under her breath.

"Could you, like, enchant something to turn it off? Wait, or even enchant something to protect your soul?" Abyssal asked, his mind suddenly jumping all over the place. It couldn't be that easy, could it? Wouldn't it have been done before then?

Sage looked on worriedly. The assembly. Was the animus trying to start another war? She felt her heart lurch at that thought. She widened her eyes at Abyssal's idea. Could an animus just enchant something to protect their soul? Surely not, otherwise they would have done it a long time ago, wouldn't they? They must have thought of it before.

"It might be worth trying." She said, trying to sound hopeful, though part of her doubted it would work.

But what if she loses more of her soul doing that? If it doesn't work, will it have been worth it? It might make it worse. Her tail twitched nervously at that.

Sage looked down at the ocean thoughtfully. She had never flown this far in her life. But we can't stop now, what if we're too late? The animus could be attacking anyone by now. As tired as she was already, she had to hope determination would push her further, she didn't want to be the one to slow them down either.

"I think so." Sage looked back up at Abyssal, trying to seem more confident than she felt.

Chestnut

Chestnut pulled vigorously on the chains. He tried to move his talon but the chains snapped down and he hissed in pain and his own temper. A search party, LITERALLY JUST A SEARCH PARTY had caused this mess. 
'Wait, Chestnut?' Firefly asked, turning to him.

'What?' he asked, keeping his temper down to talk to her. He didn't want her to be worried.

'They took off your straps right?'

He looked down at his wrists.. his straps were still there, but he could feel that they were empty..

'There's no seeds in them. I can't make a vine or anything.'

'Anything around us?' she asked, sounding reluctant to do so.

'Not that I can sense.. trees in the far distance, but I can't talk to them, so that won't help.'

Usually when he said he had to talk to the trees, SilkWings and even LeafWings without LeafSpeak gave him bizzare looks. As if they just believed you could control the tree and make it do whatever you want. His LeafSpeak was stronger, surprisingly for a hybrid, but dragons with weaker leafspeak often had to convince the trees.

As he kept thinking, his mind latched onto something. A packet of seeds, slowly heading for them. Firefly noticed his change of expression immediately. 
'What?' she asked, alert.

'There's some packet of seeds coming towards us-'

Immediately Firefly's eyes widened and she smiled.

'Rosemary and Lantern?'

He could've figured himself. The 2 were far more trusted among their tribe then he was at the moment. At least, Rosemary was. 
'Well I may as well check. The seeds can't see anything, just hear, so all I have to do is wait until they get closer and sprout one a bit.'

 

They waited. They waited a long time, leaving their own minds to drift in the silence. He went over everything that happened, not missing a detail. And then he felt the seeds murmurs cut into his senses.

'Hey, can one of you sprout, just a tiny bit?'

The effect was immediate. He knew his own vines were trained to obey his orders, but sometimes when he got lonely he did talk with them. Yes, that was crazy. He knew that. But as a small sprout appeared out the seed, he saw what he longed to see. The HiveWings were on their way. He sprouted the vine further so it appeared out of its box, waving slightly at the 2 since it had no support. He laughed at the unexpected little dance the plant was doing and sprouted more, all around it, in the picture of an arrow pointing towards the prison. And now the HiveWings knew exactly  where to go, he would only have to wait.

Her mind went to the bloody knife and she inhaled sharply, shaking her head vigorously, trying to get her mind ANYWHERE but that.

"I'm just wondering if there are better ways to protect you. Like, maybe, enchanting an object to do anything you could do with Animus magic. Though something that big might ... Nevermind." He shook his head. He didn't want to make things worse for her if she followed one of his stupid ideas. He spotted the island and swooped down towards it. A one hour break, then they were leaving again. That's all.

She told herself, but it was honestly trying to CONVINCE herself. Even if they were necessary, they would still take away her soul bit by bit. Sunset let out a helpless growl, wings laid out.

"Not really. I'm one of the most powerful dragons in the world with my magic and i CANT USE IT without the constant threat of losing my soul and oh if we dont get to Pantala in time, there might be a war." Sunset let out a small laugh, showing she was losing it. She sighed. "I thought this was a gift when i realized i had animus magic...but i was so wrong." Sunset said.

Sunset thought about Abyssal's words. "Yea, your right. Honestly, I'm glad the silly sister survived in THAT war." Sunset said. She thought of all the animuses. They had all ended up doing something that shattered their soul. Darkstalker's was destroying and lying to his family and friends, Jerboa's was controling her daughter, and Albatross' was k.illing. Sunset narrowed her eyes. She hasnt done any of those...well, except for Elder Cactus...three moons. The image flashed in her mind again and Sunset bowed her head. "Get. It. Out." She thought desperately.

"Yea, once i found one of Burn's stuff dragon heads that was still around. The look on the guard that was with me was priceless. He looked like he was wanting to run right then and there. Me, I just threw it out the window after i set it on flames, no faces needed." Sunset laughed, remembering the guard's horrified face. "Needless to say, THAT guard had a few dragons of the palace clean the area again." Sunset said. Her mind left the elder's d.eath. "Blister was just cruel to the bone but at least i got to have some fun with Burn's weirdlings, as she called them." Sunset shook her head.

"All sorts. There were SandWings with no tail barbs, NightWings with missing wings, RainWings with missing fangs, claws, and frills..." Sunset stopped listing. She remembered a dragon she'd seen that had two missing legs and an ear gone. "Needless to say, we're still finding some so I burn them all." Sunset said. "And theyre no legend, and neither is the heads that were on the stronghold's walls." Sunset said, shuddering. They still found cracks where there was blood they had to clean.
