The thunderstorm surged across the sky, alighting the immense Savannah below, and within its light two wyrms, one pink one blue, and both completely at home amidst the element that they called theirs; Mr Worm, surged ahead, showing off to the female, much to her her delight. Smug with the result, Mister continued ‘flirting’… of course it was at that point that strange voice sounded in both their minds, odd because only riders were meant to be able to speak as such, or metal dragons. “If you two are about done playing, how about you get down here and start your display.” A snarky voice echoed, bristling Mister peered below, where he could just about make out a white dragon that stood beside an inert construct; narrowing his eye he spotted a much smaller dragon draped over the construct odd flickers of light on her metallic talons….. Missy though dropped through the air, hovering before the pair. Above the thunderstorm eased momentarily, and a small pink snout appeared from a cave beyond the construction… and behind it, a navy colored cat that looked annoyed. “Well?” the cat asked, but before Worm could respond a gentle coo sounded and he turned, spotting Missy floating over to the albino dragon… oh no she didn’t, she was not going anywhere near that white fluffy male. Missy was his.
A crack of lightning split the savannah moments later to reveal Mr Worm wrapped around the larger dragons muzzle, Zuri, startled enough to take a step back hesitated, he hated fighting, even the displays were a struggle he quite often tried to find other ways of getting challengers to show their strength, much like Yuki had done with him… but he hadn’t expected to be attacked by a blue worm…… His hood flared and he could feel Mister trying to keep his mouth closed, not that he actually could if Zuri really tried, he was an earth dragon as well. Mister for his part, glanced over at Missy to see if she was watching him overpower the white dragon, whose hood was flared in distress, and couldn’t seem to dislodge him. Zuri though now had an idea on how to test the wyrm’s strength without fighting, he started to open his jaws… which in turn caused the blue wyrm to tighten his coils, the small body tense with the amount of energy he was expanding.
From the cave, the cat snorted, keeping the armadillo amused, even as he kept as far away from the opening as he could. Stupid lightning storms.
Missy had been entranced by the white dragon, he seemed as fluffy as the two of them; but then Mister had interfered and she rolled his eyes, he really needed to chill sometimes. Still with her partner competing with the albino, she turned her attention to the other dragon, happily draped over the construct. “Good morning.” She hesitated. Zia chuckled. “Zuri is as soft as he looks. Ready?” She asked, Missy nodded, wondering how they were going to ‘fight’. It didn’t take her long, lightning crackling from the green wyrm’s talons, surging into the ancient construct below her, powering it. Slowly lumbering to its feet, as the dragon ‘rode’ it, keeping it powered. A limb came her way and she dodged it, big as it was it was slow… and … she narrowed both her eyes, she could see the electrical currents running through its body. Instinct had her diving as the rocks around them shattered from the impact, the sound merging with the thunderstorm, echoing in the open savannah. Missy, slipped closer to the construct, she knew she was not strong enough physically to do anything, but like the hybrid, she was of thunder descent, concentrating she ‘blocked’ the current, the construct stumbling as it lost necessary power….. until another surge came from the older dragoness.
Meiron glared out at the weather as the armadillo snuffled around the cave, he’d forewarned Zia that if she brought the cave down with that construct he would not be amused, For now though he left the 4 dragons to it.
The canyon seemed to go on for miles, though parts of it seemed more cavernous than canyon-like, the way the rocks above overhung space below, immense icicles covering them draping down like a blanket, a stunning display of beauty even as the snow lingered below, the river frozen into stunning formations as it cut the center of the canyon. The white of the ground was broken by large stalagmites which jutted from the ground.
Mr Worm made sure to keep himself between Missy and the large earth hybrid that paced behind them, the navy cat draped over the males mane. The shadows shifted slightly as the odd shadow appeared, in a mostly bird like form.. the rider of the second dragon, far smaller that ran below them, strangely limber considering the tiny dragon was a ball of fluff. So focused on everything else, he missed a faint glow coming from the large male…. until he was almost skewered by a large icicle that had appeared from the canyon walls. Cursing loudly he glared back at Havoc. Who bared his teeth back at him… just as another icicle came his way. “Look where you’re going instead of staring at Missy.” The mental voice of the cat filtered into his mind.
Missy glanced over at Mister, spotting the huge icicle which had suddenly materialized from the side, dropping lower the canyon closing in on them, to her side the odd shadow creature soared, her antennae twitching as her vents on her neck opened and closed. Rune she was called. And below, her dragon ran keeping pace with ease, Missy’s shadow next to her… and yet, Rune had no shadow to cast. Suddenly the dragon below started to glow, magic… tensing, Missy waited for the icicles to appear….. but she forgot storm magic was unstable and chaotic… and so it wasn’t a icicle that was thrown her way, instead the air rushed at her, pushing her to the ground below. Yelping she wriggled, having no wings to help slow her descent, the snow covered earth coming up at her far too quickly.
Mister heard her yelp and turned, spotting her crashing to earth, but before he could even try to help, icicles formed, creating a cage, trapping him in its cold grasp, once this trial was over he was going t give the cat and his dragons a piece of his mind. He could see the bared teeth of Havoc, as a glow covered his claws, it wasn’t a smile, more a challenge. The cat yawned, unfazed by the display. Mister, narrowed his eye, rubbing his scales against one another, until eventually he launched himself against the ice that encased him, the discharge from the static electricity he’d built up shattering the formation, his frantic gaze looking for Missy…
Rune merely watched, her antennae twitching as the chaos unfurled, even as Missy tried not to panic, though the earth loomed closer and close, she could still feel the air pressing her down, as i caught in a powerful downdraft, she felt an echo of thunder magic, and it gave her an idea, coiling around and around as fast as she could, energy sparking…. she closed her eyes and hoped…..finally the air stopped pushing and she opened one eye, the snow covered earth mere inches away… but around her faint electric sparks filtered across her body, a negative to the positive she’d generated. Uncoiling she let the magic disperse, and her companion chuckled, head cocked to one side, as she waited for her.
Mister dropped next to her, rubbing himself against her and making sure she was okay, and glaring at the tiny storm who hovered nearby, though her snout was mostly covered, he could see a grin, Missy rubbed against him in reassurance, before floating off… the trial wasn’t over yet… and who knew what the storm dragons would do next.
