Sitting down to wait for her start of the race, she set the skates she was holding down beside her and turned to study the track.

Oasis



Oasis had felt a sense of unease as soon as she heard her decidedly uncompetitive fellow ridgeback Whirligig had volunteered for the speed skating event, so with her own competition finished she now looked on from the stands.

Spotting her, the purple and white dragon waved merrily from the starting line. She frowned in response and jabbed at the course in front of him to indicate he should focus on the race.

A moment later the starting buzzer went off, and Oasis was slightly relieved to see Whirligig push off with force and actually build up a decent speed. Her reprieve only lasted until the skaters reached the first corner, though: with dismay she realized he was deliberately moving towards the outside edge so as to avoid bumping into any of the smaller skaters.

"Stop being nice, you dolt!" She bellowed. "You're supposed to be beating them!"

If he somehow won this race in spite of his manners, it'd be a miracle.

He still wasn’t sure it was really wise to let Jormungandr play at all – especially when the spiral was rapidly turning himself into an enormous pile of knots in his excitement – but no one else had been willing to take the goaltender position. Not that he blamed the rest of the Clan: Magni and Modi’s sibling rivalry was almost legendary and no one truly wanted to get in the middle of it. After last year’s frankly embarrassing display at Curling, during which his sons had broken out into a fully-fledged fight when they lost their match, he had vetoed any suggestion of his children competing in that event again. No, this year, he was taking a more direct approach and had informed his offspring that they would be part of an Ice Hockey team with himself as the captain. Perhaps they might keep their bad behaviour to a minimum with him on the ice alongside them – bellowing admonishments if necessary. “Now,” he announced, “I would like you all to remember that this is a team game, and we are all on the same side.” Modi glowered from beneath his helmet, unrepentant. At least Magni had the decency to look ashamed. “Of course, Father,” Thruda murmured. She looked rather small beneath all the padding, and suddenly Thor wondered if it was really such a good idea to have her playing defence – or playing at all. But there was no way he could find a replacement at such short notice, and nor could he stomach forfeiting the match. “I’m sure we’ll find some teamwork somewhere,” her sister Valkyrja said firmly, glaring at both of her brothers. “Very good,” Thor said with a nod. “Now, I believe it is time to go –” He’d barely finished speaking when Jormungandr launched himself off the bench with an enthusiastic whoop, almost tripping over his shin pads in his enthusiasm. To Thor’s irritation and horror, he used Thor’s body as a climbing frame: wrapping around his foreleg and neck and twisting around his chest before launching up into the air to swoop across the changing room to grab his stick and shoot out of the door. “After Jorm, I suppose,” Valkyrja said with a rueful smile, and the team followed the overexcited spiral out onto the sidelines of the rink.

Alpine Skiing (Slalom) with Lich

Info

Coming from the Tangled Wood, one would not expect him to be good at any kind of wintery activity, turns out: A necromancer like him, got a LOT of freetime to clear his head after an troublesome week of no progress in his study chamber.
Lich, a ghoulish dragon devoided of any sense of temperature, was acually quite fittet for such adventures, and a friendly show-off could do him wonders.

Day 6

Pulling down the pair of protective glasses, the rather small nocturne stands ready at the startline, his mate and servant stood next to him, awaiting orders.
"Thank you for your help, my dear, but could you fetch me one of those interesting crystals down at the magic shop we passed by? Could be a useful catalyst for future project."
"Yes master, i will do. Good luck." answered his mate and vanished through the door.
The necromancer laughed, 'Good luck'. A simple phrase spoken as a force upon rule for social interaction but expected from a faithful and loyal servant.
Lich didnt neede luck, he was a man of science and magic, non of these needed luck.

Moments pass by, the gave one of the event helpers a signal that he was ready, the countdown starts. 3..2..1..

GO! Lich pushed forward with his ski poles to start the slide, he immediatly pushed forward to gain more speed, the first gate was in view right in front of ihn, easy target to slide through and turn to the right to aim for the next, the took sharp turnes, avoided unnessasary breaks and drove over the one or another gate pole to make his turns sharp and stay fast.

He didnt felt the cold, but he most certainly felt the harsh winds today and it was a delight to feel! A grin was on his face as he passed the half way mark, the snow was soft and gave in easily when he made turns and speeded up by crouching down to lower the resistance the winds gave him.

He was almost there, that would be his personal best time if nothing goes wrong!
