She stumbled a bit, not expecting the movement, but soon adjusted and sat down on his back. "I can see." she laughed, her tail curling around her talons. "Not in particular, do you know any places?" Onyx asked curiously, the feeling of the wind on her making her calm.

Acorn blushed slightly, and even more so as he sat right behind her. She had to focus on something besides the terror, and at the moment that was how close he was to her. How confident and brave he was, how strong and commanding he could be... crap! She was supposed to be using her wiles to manipulate him, not fall for him! But she felt comfort here. Upon Oka's back, and with Draco holding her. She smiled softly, and let the others take her away.

“Not really. There’s a lake nearby with a big rocky outcropping. Perfect for a relaxing walk and such.” Orocan said. “Sound good?”
Asla kept leading the way, and once they were at the cave, Draco dismounted Oka while she was moving. “Asla, ice wall.” Draco said. Asla let out a purr of acknowledgement and spewed out water and Draco froze the water where it landed at the entrance, and the two of them built a solid ice wall that blocked the entrance.

Acorn collapsed only a few meters in, holding her head in her hands. Oka was quick to move, and curled around her carefully, her body like a huge pillow to lie on and cry into. Little Acorn had only just left the village. And although she was of adult in age, in mind she was barely out of childhood.
((Dude, should we have Orocan and Onyx meet up with Asla, Oka, Acorn and Draco? Onyx's reaction to the humans would be priceless ))
She nodded excitedly, settling down. "Let's do it! I've never really been to a lot of lakes." Onyx stated with a grin, her tail flicking behind her with happiness. "I've never ridden on another dragon's back before." joked the female, laughing.

Once they finished the ice wall, Draco grunted and stretched. It was just beginning to get dark, but he was tired. “Asla, keep watch please.” He said, to which the dragon nodded obediently. Draco sighed and removed his shirt, grunting as he did. “Well, goodnight then.” He said. As he walked by, both of the other females could see his chest if they were looking in the low light, casting a bit of a blue hue from the ice. His chest, although strong and well-built, had three wheat appeared to be scars crossing his chest. Though these didn’t look like typical scars, they were bright white instead of the normal skin tone.

That would be interesting!))
Orocan smiled and rumbled more, then started moving towards the lake. He easily passed over rivers and streams, and it was clear he didn’t find much to be an obstacle. “I feel so nice when I’m with you, Onyx. Thanks for agreeing to stay.”

Oka had fallen asleep. She was old and needed more after all. But Acorn stood and followed him, eventually catching up and placing a hand on his shoulder. She blushed as she spoke. "I dont think I can fall asleep yet... do you mind if I stay with you?" Even in the cold of the cave, heat eliminated from her red cheeks.
She tilted her head at the confession, then smiled. "Your welcome. I think we both needed it." agreed Onyx, a shiver rolling down her spine as a particular breeze came at her from the side. "I'm just relieved I won't have to keep traveling now."

Draco flinched when she laid her hand on his bare shoulder. He hadn’t even heard her walk over. “Hm? Sure, I-I guess. But I’ll be meditating most of the night.” He said as he sat down near the cave wall.
Asla has already taken watch near the cave wall, occasionally glancing back at the two humans.

She smiled and nodded. "Yeah, okay. I'll behave." And as the narrator said, she would not behave. Acorn followed him until he sat down, then sat beside him, immediately scooting close. She had no idea what meditating had in store, but knew her dad used it as an excuse to sleep. So she paid close attention, to make sure he didn't just go under on her.

The young male sighed deeply, inhaling and exhaling as he calmed himself. “It’s going to look like I’m sleeping, but I will be able to hear some things if they’re loud though.” He said as he crossed his legs. “You’ll probably just want to get sleep.” He replied as he laid his hands on his beard and slowly let his eyes fall shut.
Post by Samandriel on Oct 28, 2018 20:55:06 GMT -5
She smiled and nodded. "Sure." And without asking permission, she laid her head on his shoulder and wrapped her arms around him. While not the most comfortable, it was certainly comforting being so close to someone she felt she could trust.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 20:58:40 GMT -5
Draco grunted when he felt her arms around her, but he clearly wouldn’t be able to get her off him that night. So he just let her stay there, and continued his meditation ritual in his mind. I just hope I don’t freeze her or my scales peek out a bit. He thought as he felt his consciousness leave this plane. Cryonius.... are you there?.... He thought. ((Skip?))
Onyx wasn't sure what the phrase had meant to the male, but she had already figured out for herself what it meant to her. The black dragon shifted so she could curl up on his back comfortably, her eyes growing a bit heavy. She stayed awake for him though, so they could at least see the lake together.

Orocan could feel Onyx getting tired. “Hey if you’re tired, you can rest. I was planning on napping once we got there too.” He said as he kept walking, now a bit quicker. Once they were at the rocks he laid down and managed to use his tail to get her down next to his belly as he laid down. He encircled her once again and fell still, just gazing at her. His skin and scales then changed color, matching the texture and colors of the rocks he was laying on. “Let’s take a relaxing nap...” he mumbled.

The next morning, Draco finished meditating and opened his eyes to find Asla still awake, though only half-so, but he didn’t blame her. He then looked down and saw frost on his pants and upper arms but that quickly melted. He reached his hand up and scratched a few itchy spots, sending loose white scales flying off. He looked down at Acorn, seeing how she was after the long day and night.

She was quite graceful in her sleep, and looked like something out of a dream. The sunlight coming through the ice wall danced across her golden hair, and her mouth was parted just slightly in a smile. She has slept well, and your slight movement caused her to begin to stir.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 21:10:07 GMT -5
Draco smiled a little, laying a gently hand on her side. “Shhh it’s okay...” he murmured as he lightly rubbed her side. He didn’t want to wake her if he could help it, finding her very pretty and cute when she was sleeping. You were right Cryonius. I do like her... He thought as he remained still .
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 21:24:02 GMT -5
Asla grinned at seeing the older female’s half-upset attitude. “It was bound to happen, Oka. She’s a female, he’s a male...” she said softly. “But you should probably know some stuff about him...” she added, looking at Oka slowly.

Scarlet closes her mouth as the flames stopped. The area the soldier was hiding in was a complete ash zone. Scarlet gave out a sharp hiss as she saw the soldier still breathing. Scarlet raised her tail. "Duck again," Amanda said as she lowered Ocean's head as Scarlet swung her tail hard into the soldiers side.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 21:34:01 GMT -5
Ocean yelped as he ducked again, barely being missed again. ((Silk isn’t going to be on for the rest of the night. Not sure how we can progress))
Asla chuffed. “No I, not really at least. It’s more about his past. And who he really is...” she said calmly.
Draco laughed as he looked down into her eyes. “No you’re fine. It’s just past daybreak.” He replied as he laid his hands on hers. He bent down and lightly and playfully nosed her forehead briefly and laughed. “Did you sleep well?” He asked, the morning like casting a warm glow over both of them, illuminating his chest and the scars as well.

~Duskheart~: Wikipedia is actually decently sourced almost all of the time.

~Duskheart~: It USED to be more sketchy. It's good for finding sources now.

Moonlight: ^ yep. It used to be a lot more unreliable than it is now.
Apr 18, 2019 11:43:40 GMT -5
Moonlight: it's not like a fandom wikia that can just be made and edited by anyone lol. There's tons of moderation. though I do agree about WebMD, there are better places for that for sure >_>

Smokey Feather: Winter Hawk misophonia is hatred of sound basically. You get at the very least highly annoyed by sounds that most don't consider annoying more of less. Chewing, tapping, breathing, etc. I'm putting it simple but it's a little more complex xD
