"Her soul was too deep to explore by those who always swam in the shallow end."

~Quote from A. J. Lawless






Life is gray & dull, & all i see is dark,

stay by my side & i'll be there no matter what,

though the snow falls faster, & the wind blows louder still,

i'll be there by you're side, to blow away the chill.

Winter can be unforgiving

Hard, evil, and cold.

But if you stay with me,

I promise you'll never be alone.

Pearl looked inside & gasped.  Sitting there in plain view, was her father's map.  

Pearl took the yellowed paper in her hands &.  She scanned it, her grip shaking h .  This was it.  The key to finding the Winter Rider.

"It was vicious, relentless, and impossible to see in the white out. The Snow Wraith."

~Gobber translating Gothi's text


"This dragon has notoriously poor eyesight and uses thermal censors to locate its prey.

It camouflages itself in the snow because if it can't see you, it doesn't want you to see it!"

~Dragons: Rise of Berk





"Snow Wraiths have no known vulnerabilities, making them 

supremely formidable force to be rekoned with during battle."






(Mountain Sun by 1flower)

Do not reply directly to this post!

Pearl slid through an open window into a small dimly lit room.  The figure of a boy sat hunched over, sneezing into a piece of cloth.  "Psssst, Carl!"  Pearl whispered.  "ahh!"  Carl started & whipped around.  "Pearl, what are you doing here?!?!  And how did you get into my bedroom?"  Pearl smirked.  "I can sneak into your house too you know.  I came to talk to you about that rogue dragon rider."  Carl sneezed again.  "You mean the Winter Rider.  Ever since the "Inccident" with him three days ago, everyone's been calling him the winter rider."  Pearl rolled her eyes.  "I don't care if hes called the queen of all gronckles, Carl.  We're going to go find him."  


Carl sat bolt upright.  The blanket that had been wrapped tightly around his body slumped down to the ground.  "What?  but you.."  "I've already asked henry, Ida, & Robin.  They all agreed to my plan.  I just need you to..."  "Pearl, but what about your promise?"  Pearl stopped.  "What promise?"  Carl sneezed again.  "The one to your dad, about not going out after the winter rider again."  Pearl's eyes glinted mysteviously.  "No, I promised i'd be CAREFUL.  there a difference between the two."  "But won't your dad be mad?  I don't think i've seen him mad before, but I wouldn't try it.  Your dad is the size of a house & strong enough to lift one at that."


Pearl waved her hand.  "My dad's never gotten mad at anyone before.  Besides, once we come back with the rider, he'll be so proud he won't have any room to be mad."  Carl still looked unsure.  "Er, my mom doesn't want me going out.  I've got a really bad cold & if she sees me leave the house..."  "Oh come on Carl, stop being a big baby!  Besides, i've got a plan."  Carl sighed.  "Fine.  What did you have in mind?"




"hey Pearl, how you doing in there?"  "What do you mean how am I doing?  I'm in a cage for Thor's sake!"  Pearl sat huddled under a blanket trapped in an old dragon hunter cage with Snowdust.  Henry, Carl, ida, & Robin were all standing around it, each dressed in dragon hunter armor.  Carl frowned at her.  "You don't need to be snarky about it."  He started scratching his arm.  "Which reminds me, this armor is itchy.  How do they even wear these things?  It even itches in my..."  "NO!  Don't you dare go there."  Pearl shivered.  Ida snickered.  "Its not that bad Carl.......IF you're even strong enough to wear it."  "Its not my fault i fell over!"  Carl hissed.  "This armor is heavier then Zander after a five course meal!"  Robin nodded.  "I do ageree this stuff is heavy.  And its so loud!"  Ida rolled her eyes.  "Thats because you've been shaking ever sense we got here!"


Pearl sighed.  "Enough guys.  Ok, lets go over the plan again ok?"  Everyone groaned.  Henry was the one who answered.  "We come here to Melody island in the dead of night dressed as dragon hunters with you and Snowdust in the cage.  When the rider comes he'll censored you & Snowdust in the cage & you guys will unlock the cage from the inside, fly out at him, using the element of surprise to catch him."  "Right!  And then we bring him back to Berk, where he will be taken care of & we'll all be heroes!"  Henry rolled his eyes.  "Oh how could i forget that?"  Pearl sighed.  "Henry, stop worrying.  You know perfectly well we can defend ourselves.  & we have our dragons of course!"


Henry shook his head.  "I still don't believe you, but its too late to turn back now."  Everyone nodded in agreement.  Carl knelt down beside Pearl & took her hand.  "Pearl, please be careful.  I can't lose you to him."  Pearl squeezed his hand tightly in hers.  "I already did Carl.  Don't worry.  Snowdust will keep me safe.  All we have to do now is wait."
