Also, it may [i]seem[/i] like they're about to kiss, but don't get your hopes up [s]I'm terrible at writing kissing scenes[/s] ^^') [b]Day 89:[/b] The panic started when Arion dragged Lost back to camp, the pearlcatcher limp and unconscious as she was dragged across the ground. Jade cried out when she saw them, instantly by Arion's side and helping him carry Lost more gently across the ground. [b]"What happened?"[/b] She fretted, intently staring at Arion's face once they'd softly set Lost down inside the cabin. Arion cringed away from Jade's wide-eyed, worried gaze. [b]"I-I'm sorry."[/b] He stammered, guiltily turning his head away from Lost. He didn't dare meet Jade's gaze, or see Lost limp on the ground, almost as good as dead. . . [b]"We-we were just experimenting, I swear!"[/b] [b]"[i]Experimenting[/i]?"[/b] A new voice seethed, grabbing Arion's shoulders and spinning him around so he came nose-to-nose with Aurora's furious face. [b]"I didn't think you were stupid enough to go [i]experimenting[/i] with your powers!"[/b] She hissed, her eyes alight with fury and worry. Arion tried to back away from his sister, but she firmly gripped his shoulders. [b]"Sorry, I'm sorry."[/b] He whimpered. [b]"I didn't know Lost would faint! It happened [i]after[/i] the explosion-"[/b] [b]"[i]Explosion[/i]?"[/b] Aurora growled menacingly. Arion winced and ducked his head, Aurora releasing his shoulders to pace back and forth, lashing her tail furiously. [b]"So that's what the cold was."[/b] She muttered, half to herself. She whirled on Arion, eyes alight with anger. [b]"Here I am, finally trying to be an [i]adult[/i], and you go blowing things up!"[/b] She fumed. [b]"Really. I thought that was against your 'morals' or something."[/b] Arion mentally beat myself, feeling his ears heat up. [b]"It [i]is[/i]."[/b] He muttered. [b]"That's why I [i]didn't mean to do it[/i]. And since when are you into adulting?"[/b] [b]"Never you mind."[/b] Aurora snapped at him, unable to hide the furious blush that tinged her face. [b]"We're talking about what you did wrong and why you're never going to do it again. Dawn,"[/b] She said, turning on the silver-green wildclaw standing idly nearby. [b]"Do you think you can help Lost to her feet?"[/b] Dawn nodded numbly, fiddling with a vial of clear turquoise liquid. [b]"Sure!"[/b] She replied, sildling around the two arguing siblings and up to Lost's side. She rolled her pearlcatcher over onto a plush sleeping bag, and propped her head up on a cushy pillow, prying Lost's mouth open to gradually dribble the liquid from the vial down her throat. Lost spasmed in the midst of her coma, but didn't wake up. Arion stared at her expectantly, fretfully fidgeting with his talons, but she did nothing more. Dawn, however, sat back with a satisfied smile. The elixir was evidently having the right effect. [b]"Pay. Attention."[/b] Aurora snapped, prodding Arion in the chest. [b]"I'm not done being mad at you."[/b] Arion rolled his eyes, trying not to look bothered or guilty at having knocked Lost out, blown up part of the forest, and had worried Aurora half to death. [b]"I'm sorry we were experimenting with our powers!"[/b] He moaned for about the fifth time. [b]"I'll apologize to Lost when she wakes up too. I really didn't mean to hurt her."[/b] He added in an almost inaudible mumble. Aurora snorted with amusement. [b]"Yes, you're quite the charmer, aren't you?"[/b] She teased. Arion huffed with irritation, failing to hide the furious blush that rose to his cheeks. [b]"Shut up."[/b] He muttered, his face burning. Then he felt wings and a pair of arms reaching around his neck, and was pulled into an embrace, his head mushed up against Aurora's plumage. [b]"You idiot."[/b] Aurora muttered into his ear. [b]"Don't ever worry me like that again."[/b] Arion grinned to himself. Girls were so weird. [b]"I promise I'll try."[/b] He murmured, pulling away to look Aurora sincerely in the eye. Aurora wrinkled her nose at him. [b]"I suppose that'll have to be enough."[/b] She teased, affectionately noogying her little brother. Arion snorted with laughter, trying to push her away. [b]"Stop it!"[/b] He protested humorously, Aurora shoving at his head with sister-like affection. Suddenly Lost gave a heart-wrenching cough and abruptly sat up, her eerily entrancing eyes snapping open. [b]"Lost!"[/b] Arion cried in a wrangled, relieved sort of voice. Aurora glanced at him curiously, her expression sliding into an annoyingly knowing expression. Lost's chest was heaving as she looked around with wide eyes, clutching herself as if she were still cold. She even seemed to be muttering things under her breath, flinching as Arion worriedly clutched her shoulder. [b]"Are-are you okay?"[/b] Arion asked queasily, guiltily removing his talons from Lost's shoulder. She spun around and grabbed his hands, her eyes wide. [b]"The shade."[/b] She blurted, her eyes wide. [b]"It wants more."[/b] Her face was so close to Arion's he swore he could see a sliver of pale green behind the unnatural glow of her eyes. [b]"Wh-wha'd'ya mean, it wants more?"[/b] said Arion breathlessly, pulling away from her. Lost clutched his arm tighter, her claws digging into his scales. [b]"It's getting hungrier."[/b] She whispered almost unintelligible. [b]"It wants victims. Prey. I won't be able to restrain it for much longer."[/b] Arion nodded numbly, prying her talons from his arms and instead clasping them in his own, ignoring the weird looks he was probably getting. [b]"You'll fight it."[/b] He said with such certainty he almost believed himself. [b]"And I'll help you. The shade won't get it's victims."[/b] Lost nodded slowly, her breathing finally evening. The ghost of a smile flickered across her face, and she ever so subtlety squeezed Arion's talons back. [b]"I believe you."[/b] She murmured quietly, softly putting a talon on his chest. [b]"We'll make sure the shade never finds its way to any innocent lives. It won't feed again for a long, long time."[/b][/center] ------ [size=2]@AmberHive @mayanaz @Spottedleaf125 @Skyeset @Moon314 @WildRose42 @PrussianWizards @CleverDual @Firedawn @Dragondreamer @Shadow104 @ScaledBookworm @LuminusPrime @CrAZDragon @DragonMist @Shadowhunter43 @Digimon11 @Avu42 @MythicalMemeLord @Vyxen @VioletEevee @Verdant @Sanddollar @Faolyn @Bluebirdi3 @ThornOfStorm130 @ObsidianMage @TropicalDiamonds @fenshae @Birdleap18 @Petall @L1llysage @Catkidemma @WOF2012 @Chbosser[/size] HELLO!!!!!!!!

Oh yay, new Ravenclaw buddy!!!
Yeah, I did. About seven times XD
Hufflepuff and Slytherin once, and then Ravenclaw five.

And my patronus is a dragon, actually :3
It's supposed to be really rare, so I'm thrilled about it ^w^

AAAAAHHHHH NO SHADE I REFUSE
YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO HURT LOST


So I took the pottermore quiz and I’m a Gryffindor, which I understand, but I’m also pretty much a Ravenclaw. BOOKS.
Also, my patronus is a dolphin!
You seriously got a dragon?! Lucky.

I'm apparently a Ravenclaw, and my Patronus is an Oryx! Apparently it's an unusual one :D
Could of sworn I'd be Hufflepuff

Edit: and my wand is Rowan with dragon heartstrings, 13", and suprisingly swishy.

His sharp beak was angled downwards, occasionally letting loose a raucous cry that made everyone down below flinch. Every time someone tried to coax him down he'd see the lake, freak out, and start circling overhead again, glaring at the water far below with all his eyes. He wasn't the only one acting strange. Ash also refused to go anywhere near the water, preferring to hide out in Dawn's cabin white gorging himself on trail mix and getting feathers all over Zaffer's sleeping bag. Oliver was avoiding it too, now suspiciously pacing back and forth ten feet away from the shore, inspecting the innocently lapping waves with his beady black eyes. Even Myu, who seemed to have the same instincts as the familiars, avoided it. Myu no longer joyously bounded towards the water with high hopes of bubbles, but sat idly by as he watched the other dragonets splashing about in the shadows, staring pityingly back at them whenever any of the dragonets met his gaze. [b]"Why are they acting so weird?"[/b] Satira asked curiously in her wispy voice. Ajax shrugged, his head tilted back to watch Nico circle above the lake like a hungry vulture. [b]"I have no idea."[/b] He murmured, just as mystified as everyone else. Even Myu couldn't blurt out the simplest of words that explained why they were acting so on-edge. [b]"At least the fish are shinier!"[/b] Aster pointed out enthusiastically, jabbing a claw at the silvery scales that flitted about just beneath the surface of the water. Ajax glanced at them too, a confused frown on his face. [b]"That makes no sense."[/b] He muttered, half to himself. [b]"Why would fish be so close to the surface?"[/b] Aster giggled, sticking a claw into the lake. Hundreds of little minnows fled away from the disturbance in the water, looking like a miniature tsunami of colorful scales. [b]"The water also isn't as calm anymore."[/b] Satira pointed out, her eyes narrowed thoughtfully. [b]"Just look. There weren't any waves before, and now there are."[/b] Ajax eyed the water, which lapped hungrily at Aster's talons. [b]"Yeah."[/b] He mused, slithering up to his sister's side. [b]"Maybe something beneath the water it scaring all the fish up."[/b] He suggested. Satira nodded, fluttering up to Aster's other side. [b]"That's exactly what I figured."[/b] Satira murmured. [b]"But what could make it active [i]now[/i] and not, say, years ago?"[/b] Aster chuckled, clutching Stormi in her talons. [b]"Maybe from that weird glowy thing!"[/b] She suggested brightly. [b]"The water felt a bit weird when I first got it. Like the air was distorted."[/b] She suppressed a shiver, hugging Stormi to her chest. Satira anxiously flipped her tail over her talons.
