LUGE [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=21744423] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/217445/21744423_350.png[/img] [/url] As soon as Styx had seen the Luge area, he had decided to participate- and since no other Clan member felt like breaking their necks in this sports, he didn't have to put a lot of effort into trying to overtalk them. But for now, he was busy eyeing the souvenir shops, rushing from seller to seller to not miss any interesting thing. Being a native Fire dragon and living in the lands of the Stormcatcher, he wasn't used to all these cold shiny things at all and gazed at the icy statues and frosted food in amazement. "You shouldn't buy too much food if you're going to participate in an event, Styx. You will only get sick." He bent his neck to look at Sapientia, who had agreed to accompany him today- and though he thought she was going to cheer for him, she actually just tagged along to play the babysitter. Just in case Styx got too excited and set another dragon on fire by accident or something. "Sap! It's gonna start soon, isn't it?" His tail swooshed in anticipation, almost swiping a juicy snow bunny out of some Wildclaw's hands. With an apologetic smile, he tried to contain his energy- there would be enough time to set it free once the race started. "Look, look! I even got some special Luge wear with me!" He said as he put the googles he was carrying on his head over his eyes. "You are wearing those everyday anyway..." "Yes! I know! But don't you see, this only means it is my destiny to participate in the Luge race today!" But before Sapientia could reply to that, Styx had already seen the next interesting thing- a booth offering a variety of fancy looking helmets- and he darted off to take a closer look. Sapientia followed slowly, shaking her head. She could only hope this scatterbrain wouldn't cause a massive crash during the competition!

As soon as Styx had seen the Luge area, he had decided to participate- and since no other Clan member felt like breaking their necks in this sports, he didn't have to put a lot of effort into trying to overtalk them.
But for now, he was busy eyeing the souvenir shops, rushing from seller to seller to not miss any interesting thing.
Being a native Fire dragon and living in the lands of the Stormcatcher, he wasn't used to all these cold shiny things at all and gazed at the icy statues and frosted food in amazement.

Her movements were graceful and smooth. Her clanmates cheered her on from the bleachers as she fastened her skis. She entered the snow, melting a little pool around her from her fire dragon warmth. In a moment she was off. She flew across the snow, gathering momentum for the first jump. Phoenix smiled as she left the snow behind. For breathtaking instant she was high above the course. Then she back on the snow, preparing to complete the next jump.

Relax...[/i] Lyrica sighed softly as she eased into one of the final sets of her pre-event stretches. She kept her eyes closed, trying to block out the roar of the crowd. In this moment, she knew a calm mind was just as important as any physical preparation. She pictured the course, the jump... and breathed in. The snow swirling, the moment of tensing... a breath out. A sudden shifting to her left almost startled the young Wildclaw out of her zone, but she carefully straightened out of her stretch before opening her eyes to see what was happening. As she expected, the Fae who'd been prepping for their run next to her had moved on. [i]I'm next[/i], she realized. Making a few final adjustments to her protective gear, Lyrica waited for the call.

Satisfied that her skis bindings were secure she turned to her mate and grinned. "What are you so happy about lady?" he asked, "Aren't you nervous? I'd be nervous." She chuckled, "No Lief, I do this every day." "But this is different, this is you know, competing against other dragons." "Lief, I am my own toughest competitor, you know that every time I carry a message I try to beat my last time. This course is almost exactly the same as the path I take to Blue Scale Clan." Lief eyed her speculatively, "But what about the bit that goes so close to that shear cliff? What if you slip? What if you get your skis tangled in your wings? What if....." TemiriLotus interrupted, "Oh stop, you worrywart! I'll be fine. And this time I might bring back a medal instead of a message." Lief sighed. She leaned forward and nuzzled him gently. "Much love mate of my heart. Wish me luck." "Good luck Temi." he nuzzled her in return and watched as she glided away toward the starting line.

Remember, this is a speed skating competition, not a dancing competition-" Pearl hmph in response and walks out to the rink without waiting for Eiyora to finish. Sighing at Pearl's indifference, Eiyora could only pray that he listened this time and goes to join the rest of the audience. The starting horn blew and Eiyora watch on hopelessly as Pearl starts his favourite triple spins and twist as he travels around the rink, almost causing a few accidents with his tail bangle. Eiyora was in midst of a face-palm when a couple of dragons beside her starts screaming, "Kya! That's Pearl-sama!" "Oh great, should have known his fans would be here. Spiralshine is going to have my neck for bringing him and the rest out without permission. Oh well, it makes for a great publicity stunt." Eiyora thought to herself and broke into another sigh when she sees Pearl start doing twirls, "Should have just signed him up for figure skating."

As a native of the Southern Icefield, she had learned to ski virtually as a hatchling and it was as natural to her as walking or flying: she felt confident about entering herself for the event. However, she knew from long experience on the ice that [i]over[/i]-confidence could be the downfall of many a dragon. So, she took care with her equipment as she gathered it together. As she set off towards the start line, satisfied that she was ready and that nothing could go wrong with her skis and poles at least, she mentally reviewed the Tundra course. It would be tricky: the dragons who had set the route had taken into account Tundras' natural abilities, including their warm coats and the quirks of their memory, and decided to challenge both with a particularly lengthy and complex course. However, she was sure that she could follow the scent markers. She was, after all, a trained tracker and she had followed more difficult quarry through more arduous conditions and difficult terrain than this. She paused to look up at the clear blue sky above. It was a wonderful day for skiing.
