Hello and welcome!

This is a story I've been planning for a little while now, and I've finally gotten around to starting it! I have big plans for this story mainly starring a young Nocturne named Amity, who has a strange ability she keeps secret from everyone, along with her best friend, an upbeat and mischievous Mirror named Tiercel. Along the way they meet a fiery Wildclaw, but is he a friend or foe?

I'd tell you more, but I don't want to spoil the story, now do I?

The Mirror paused to glance back at the Skydancer accompanying him. "You have to leave in the morning, and we both know you're not an early riser. It's nearly midnight already, are you sure you want to go to an important peace meeting with only a few hours of sleep?" [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=43030724] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/430308/43030724_350.png[/img] [/url] "While I appreciate your concern," Razatharia began, "there's no way I'm letting you wander around on your own. Besides, I'm used to getting hardly any sleep. You should know that, since you stalk me all the time." Nightshade chuckled, shaking his head. "Well [i]someone's[/i] got to keep an eye on you," he said as he continued stalking through the forest. "And are you implying you don't trust me?" "Well why would I? You did try to murder me in my sleep," Raza pointed out. "[i]Assassinate,[/i]" Nightshade corrected, then put a talon to his chest, mock offended. "And I would never, [i]ever[/i]... try to kill you more than twice." "Twice?" Razatharia echoed, raising a brow. "Oops. Guess Duskprowler didn't tell you about the second time," Nightshade muttered playfully, then cleared his throat. "I mean, did I say twice? I meant once. I've only tried assassinating you once," he said cheerfully. Raza shook her head at the Mirror in amusement. "And this is why I don't let you go off on your own," she mused. "Really?" Nightshade began, flashing her a grin. "Because I thought you kept me close due to my charming good looks and witty comebacks. Not to mention I'm absolutely fabulous at my job." "Don't you mean narcissistic and overconfident?" Raza countered. "And I wouldn't say you're very good at your job if you failed and ended up working for the dragon you were supposed to kill." "Ouch, how you wound me," Nightshade said dramatically. Raza's antennae twitched, the emotion-sensing gemstone on her forehead detecting nothing but amusement from the Mirror. “Don’t lie to me,” he continued. “I know you’re [i]madly[/i] in love with me.” “Oh, sure,” Raza began dryly. “I’m just head over heels in love with you. I’m so lovestruck I can’t even speak. [i]Oh. Wait a minute,[/i]” she deadpanned, causing Nightshade to break off laughing. His laughter was cut off as the Mirror seemed to trip over something and ungracefully fell flat on his face with a muffled yelp. It was Raza’s turn to burst out laughing as Nightshade scrambled back to his feet, muttering angrily and rubbing his snout with a hurt expression. She knew his pride was hurt more than he actually was, and found it hilarious that mister “I’m the best at everything” managed to trip over something. “Ugh, who the heck leaves a-” Nightshade broke off suddenly, his annoyance replaced by confusion. “Wait…” He picked up something off the ground; presumably the object he had tripped over. It was roughly spherical, and covered in a lot of dirt and plants, but as Nightshade began tearing the foliage off, the thick armoured shell of the object was revealed. “An egg,” Nightshade said quietly, tilting his head at the somewhat spiky unhatched egg. Raza moved closer to it, her antennae quivering as she tried to sense the hatchling inside. To her surprise, the egg was seemingly fine. Like most dragon eggs, it was currently in a stasis of some sort from lack of incubation, but the process would start up again and the hatchling should be just fine as soon as the incubation of the egg was continued. “It must have been from the last Night of the Nocturne,” Raza theorized as she gingerly took the egg from Nightshade. “Or maybe even the one before that. It seems to have been here for a long time…” “...You’re not keeping it, are you?” Nightshade asked hesitantly. Raza glanced over at him. “Is there a reason why I shouldn’t?” “You’re busy enough as it is with the clan, don’t you think trying to raise a-” “Think I can’t handle it?” Raza interrupted. Nightshade snapped his mouth shut, knowing arguing further would only make her more stubborn. “I can’t just leave it here,” she argued, brushing some more dirt off the egg. “And it’s not like I know anyone else who’s capable of raising a hatchling right now,” she said grimly, thinking of all the unstable dragons in her clan. Nightshade sighed exasperatedly. “I hate that you’re right,” he muttered, knowing very well how broken most of the dragons in the clan were. It was no surprise they were the way they were, though; after what they had been through. “...But you’re leaving tomorrow,” Nightshade reminded Raza after a few moments. “And I’ll be back. I’m not leaving forever; it’s just a peace meeting,” she reminded him. “Of course. But you can’t bring an egg with you to the meeting-” “We [i]have[/i] a nesting ground, you know. Equinox is a bit forgetful, but she’s a fine caretaker and can manage looking after the egg for a single day,” Raza said as she opened the bag at her side and slipped the egg into it carefully. After making sure it was secure, the Skydancer turned and began heading back the way they came, pausing to glance back at Nightshade when the Mirror didn’t follow. “I’m going to finish scouting out the new route,” Nightshade decided firmly. “Alone? No you’re not,” Raza said firmly. Not because she didn’t trust him; to be perfectly honest, she [i]did[/i] trust the assassin, but there was no way she would allow [i]anyone[/i] to wander around alone, especially in uncharted territory like they were in now. “I’m more than capable-” “I don’t care how capable you are, you’re not scouting alone, and that’s final,” Raza snapped. Nightshade’s tail flicked in annoyance, both from being interrupted so frequently and at the argument they were having. Raza sighed, her voice softening. “You’re too important for me to risk losing,” she said, knowing exactly how to convince Nightshade to do what she wanted. The Mirror seemed to go through some internal conflict before sighing and muttering something under his breath. “Damn you and your flattery,” Nightshade growled, shaking his head with a grin. “You’re so manipulative,” he mused as he moved to walk beside Raza, the two of them making their way back to the clan. “Perhaps. But you see right through my words and listen to me anyway, so what does that say about you?” Raza asked, flashing him a smirk. “That I'm your best friend?” He offered smugly, returning the smirk. “If that makes you happy, then sure.” “I hate you.” “We [i]both[/i] know you’re lying.” [img]https://66.media.tumblr.com/07655acabf5f30100a4bbe954460a1eb/tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png[/img] “I should be back by sundown,” Razatharia told the female Guardian in charge of watching over the nesting grounds. [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=45415065] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/454151/45415065_350.png[/img] [/url] “Of course,” Equinox said cheerfully. “The egg is in good talons; I’ll make sure to take good care of it until you return.” “Thank you,” Raza said, smiling despite the nervousness she felt leaving the egg where she couldn’t keep an eye on it herself. It was surprising- or, actually, perhaps it wasn’t so surprising- how quickly Raza had gotten attached to the unhatched egg. With everything figured out, Raza, along with the small group of dragons that were accompanying her to the peace meeting, said their goodbyes and set out. Equinox watched her leader leave, then turned her attention to the unhatched Nocturne egg left in her care. “Don’t worry, little one, you’re safe with me.” [img]https://66.media.tumblr.com/07655acabf5f30100a4bbe954460a1eb/tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png[/img] Humming cheerfully as she finished tidying one of the nests, Equinox double-checked her work before nodding, satisfied. Her hummed tune came to a halt as one of her many familiars fluttered in front of her snout; this one in particular, a Primrose Mith appropriately nicknamed “Rose”. “Oh dear,” Equinox mumbled worriedly as the pink mith waved its little arms and pointed. “What did I forget this time?” She asked as she followed the familiar through the nesting grounds. When they approached the area the Nocturne egg had been left, Equinox suddenly remembered she was supposed to be keeping a close eye on the egg, for the leader herself. Equinox wasn’t too worried; the nesting grounds were completely safe, and constantly patrolled by all of her helpful familiars, ranging from many different miths to floracats to dryads and satyrs, as well as a few other random creatures here and there. Mostly miths though. Equinox looked over the nest for the egg, dread slowly gripping her as she didn’t see the Nocturne egg anywhere. Panicking a bit, the Guardian tore through the nest, but found no sign of the egg. Thinking that perhaps she had gotten confused and forgotten which nest she left the egg in, Equinox quickly moved about, checking every nook and cranny in the nesting grounds. But to no avail. The egg was gone. [img]https://66.media.tumblr.com/07655acabf5f30100a4bbe954460a1eb/tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png[/img] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=25162945] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/251630/25162945_350.png[/img] [/url] “Too easy,” the Imperial mused coldly as he silently slipped back into his research lab, the unhatched Nocturne egg tucked under one wing. Glancing around the large room briefly, Comet made his way to the back, where a doorway connected this room to his own personal quarters. After entering the room and firmly closing and locking the door behind him, Comet moved his desk to the side, which was easy thanks to the wheels it had, and opened up the secret door hidden behind it. Descending down the dark spiral staircase, Comet grinned coldly as his mind began running calculations and hypotheses. The staircase came to an end, opening up into a huge cavernous area; Comet’s true laboratory. He was the only one who knew about it, save for the few unfortunate souls trapped down here until the day they died. There were many hallways that branched out from the center room, and Comet had no trouble navigating the somewhat maze-like sprawl of hallways, quickly arriving at the desired room. Filled with various alchemic tools and apparatuses. Pulling on his rubber gloves, Comet took the egg out from under his wing, holding it up to inspect it closely. After carefully placing the egg on the counter of the large desk pressed up against one of the walls, Comet opened one of the drawers and rummaged around until he located an empty notebook. Flipping it open and grabbing a quill and a bottle of ink, Comet wrote down a quick summary of the egg’s current state, muttering to himself under his breath as he did. He wrote down his planned tests, and what effect he assumed it may have on the hatchling inside, before putting the quill down and focusing back on the egg itself. “Congratulations,” Comet drawled. “You’re going to further science and alchemy with your contribution,” he said as he picked up the egg and placed it in an empty cauldron. Setting up his tools and getting out his various vials and beakers of different solutions and chemical compounds. “Don’t worry, you shouldn’t feel a thing, and even better, you [i]should[/i] come out of this experiment alive! How lucky for you,” Comet mused apathetically as he measured out his ingredients and mixed them together in separate beakers. The liquid hissed and sizzled as the chemicals reacted to each other. Satisfied with the fluorescent blue solution he had created, Comet moved to the cauldron and poured the substance over the egg, covering it completely. Steam rose up from where the thick liquid made contact with the egg, before the substance slowly disappeared; seeping through the eggshell. The egg seemed to pulse with light a few times, like a glowing heartbeat, before the glow faded, and the egg appeared to be no different than it had moments before the experiment. Grabbing the quill, Comet wrote out some more notes before carefully grabbing the egg in his gloved talons and wrapping it up in a sheet of fabric. With his test put into action, all he had to do now was return the egg and wait for it to hatch to study the effects. How wonderful. [img]https://66.media.tumblr.com/07655acabf5f30100a4bbe954460a1eb/tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png[/img] Equinox paced worriedly, her panic growing the closer the sun dipped to the horizon. Razatharia would be returning soon, and Equinox was terrified of what that meant. She was so deep in her downward spiral of thoughts that the Guardian didn’t notice another dragon approach. The miths that had been trying to comfort Equinox quickly flitted away as they skittishly hid from the imposing Imperial. “I heard you lost a certain something,” Comet began smoothly as he moved to stand beside Equinox. The Guardian jumped slightly, startled. “O-oh, um…” Equinox tried desperately to think up an excuse of some sort. “Don’t worry,” Comet said smoothly, taking out the Nocturne egg out from under his wing. “I found this, and figured you must have… [i]misplaced[/i] it.” He held the egg out to Equinox, who quickly took the egg, looking it over for any cracks and relaxing when everything appeared to be fine. “Comet! Thank you so much!” Equinox burst out, on the edge of tears. Comet shrugged. “Of course,” he said dismissively. “Though, maybe don’t tell the leader about this little mishap. The egg is fine, after all, and you wouldn’t want her to be angry for no reason, would you? I’m just looking out for your best interest,” Comet suggested. Equinox considered his words for a moment, nodding slowly. Razatharia didn’t need to know about the disappearance of the egg. Everything was fine now. “Thank you,” the Guardian repeated. “Happy to help,” the Imperial replied smoothly as he left, a smug smirk tugging at the corners of his mouth. [img]https://66.media.tumblr.com/07655acabf5f30100a4bbe954460a1eb/tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png[/img] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=20716417] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/207165/20716417_350.png[/img] [/url] “That meeting couldn’t have gone smoother,” Mark said happily as they returned to their clan. “Such a friendly clan,” he mused with a smile. “Maybe a little [i]too[/i] friendly, don’t you think?” Nightshade intoned suspiciously, grinning at Raza. The Skydancer didn’t seem to hear him though. “...Raza?” Nightshade prompted, brushing up against her. “Hm?” The leader blinked a few times, startled out of her daze as she turned her attention to the assassin. “Sorry, what was that?” Nightshade sighed. “Nothing. Are you doing alright? I [i]told[/i] you staying out late was a bad idea. You should listen to me more,” Nightshade said playfully, trying to lighten her mood. Raza only hummed in response, making the Mirror frown slightly. She wasn’t usually this despondent, though he supposed she could just be tired from the meeting. While it [i]had[/i] gone surprisingly well, Raza was still an introvert, and being in a large group for that long probably took its toll on her. “Do you need anything else from me?” Raza asked as she turned to look at Mark. The red and black Mirror looked over his notes from the peace meeting, humming thoughtfully for a moment before shaking his head. “Not really, everything seems to be in order. But if anything else comes up, we can figure it out later,” Mark said, closing his book of notes and stowing it away in his book bag. “I’ll take this over to the library for Blacksand to go through,” he said, darting off. Razatharia immediately turned around and began heading towards the nesting grounds, with Nightshade quickly catching up to her and matching her pace. He didn’t bother asking where she was going; he already knew. Equinox greeted Raza at the entrance to the nesting grounds and promptly returned the egg safe and sound. Razatharia let out a small sigh of relief when she found the egg to be perfectly... The Skydancer’s antennae twitched, and she tilted her head at the egg. Though it had been completely dormant when she left it, the egg now gave off a very clear active energy; the dragonet inside was getting ready to hatch very soon. Raza opened her mouth to ask Equinox some questions, but before she could, a crack splintered across the eggshell. Startled, Raza gently put the egg down in the nest beside her, watching without a word as the egg slowly cracked and began falling apart. Finally, the tiny dragonet pushed itself free from the egg, revealing a Nocturne with strange markings. At least, it was strange for a Nocturne to hatch with markings, considering they usually had unpatterned hides. But as the tiny hatchling let out a curious chirp, Raza’s questions dissipated completely, and she gently scooped up the small Nocturne.

Sky blue eyes stared up at her, innocent and curious. “...What will you name her?” Equinox asked quietly, watching with calm excitement. Raza tilted her head slightly in thought. “I think I’ll call her Amity.” [img]https://66.media.tumblr.com/07655acabf5f30100a4bbe954460a1eb/tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png[/img] [/center] [center] Surprise!

"I could've done this on my own, you know," Nightshade said as he prowled through the dense bamboo forest. The Mirror paused to glance back at the Skydancer accompanying him. "You have to leave in the morning, and we both know you're not an early riser. It's nearly midnight already, are you sure you want to go to an important peace meeting with only a few hours of sleep?"


43030724_350.png


"While I appreciate your concern," Razatharia began, "there's no way I'm letting you wander around on your own. Besides, I'm used to getting hardly any sleep. You should know that, since you stalk me all the time."

Nightshade chuckled, shaking his head.

"Well someone's got to keep an eye on you," he said as he continued stalking through the forest. "And are you implying you don't trust me?"

"Well why would I? You did try to murder me in my sleep," Raza pointed out.

"Assassinate," Nightshade corrected, then put a talon to his chest, mock offended. "And I would never, ever... try to kill you more than twice."

"Twice?" Razatharia echoed, raising a brow.

"Oops. Guess Duskprowler didn't tell you about the second time," Nightshade muttered playfully, then cleared his throat. "I mean, did I say twice? I meant once. I've only tried assassinating you once," he said cheerfully. Raza shook her head at the Mirror in amusement.

"And this is why I don't let you go off on your own," she mused.

"Really?" Nightshade began, flashing her a grin. "Because I thought you kept me close due to my charming good looks and witty comebacks. Not to mention I'm absolutely fabulous at my job."

"Don't you mean narcissistic and overconfident?" Raza countered. "And I wouldn't say you're very good at your job if you failed and ended up working for the dragon you were supposed to kill."

"Ouch, how you wound me," Nightshade said dramatically. Raza's antennae twitched, the emotion-sensing gemstone on her forehead detecting nothing but amusement from the Mirror. “Don’t lie to me,” he continued. “I know you’re madly in love with me.”

“Oh, sure,” Raza began dryly. “I’m just head over heels in love with you. I’m so lovestruck I can’t even speak. Oh. Wait a minute,” she deadpanned, causing Nightshade to break off laughing. His laughter was cut off as the Mirror seemed to trip over something and ungracefully fell flat on his face with a muffled yelp.

It was Raza’s turn to burst out laughing as Nightshade scrambled back to his feet, muttering angrily and rubbing his snout with a hurt expression. She knew his pride was hurt more than he actually was, and found it hilarious that mister “I’m the best at everything” managed to trip over something.

“Ugh, who the heck leaves a-” Nightshade broke off suddenly, his annoyance replaced by confusion. “Wait…” He picked up something off the ground; presumably the object he had tripped over. It was roughly spherical, and covered in a lot of dirt and plants, but as Nightshade began tearing the foliage off, the thick armoured shell of the object was revealed.

“An egg,” Nightshade said quietly, tilting his head at the somewhat spiky unhatched egg. Raza moved closer to it, her antennae quivering as she tried to sense the hatchling inside. To her surprise, the egg was seemingly fine. Like most dragon eggs, it was currently in a stasis of some sort from lack of incubation, but the process would start up again and the hatchling should be just fine as soon as the incubation of the egg was continued.

“It must have been from the last Night of the Nocturne,” Raza theorized as she gingerly took the egg from Nightshade. “Or maybe even the one before that. It seems to have been here for a long time…”

“...You’re not keeping it, are you?” Nightshade asked hesitantly. Raza glanced over at him.

“Is there a reason why I shouldn’t?”

“You’re busy enough as it is with the clan, don’t you think trying to raise a-”

“Think I can’t handle it?” Raza interrupted. Nightshade snapped his mouth shut, knowing arguing further would only make her more stubborn. “I can’t just leave it here,” she argued, brushing some more dirt off the egg. “And it’s not like I know anyone else who’s capable of raising a hatchling right now,” she said grimly, thinking of all the unstable dragons in her clan.

Nightshade sighed exasperatedly.

“I hate that you’re right,” he muttered, knowing very well how broken most of the dragons in the clan were. It was no surprise they were the way they were, though; after what they had been through. “...But you’re leaving tomorrow,” Nightshade reminded Raza after a few moments.

“And I’ll be back. I’m not leaving forever; it’s just a peace meeting,” she reminded him.

“Of course. But you can’t bring an egg with you to the meeting-”

“We have a nesting ground, you know. Equinox is a bit forgetful, but she’s a fine caretaker and can manage looking after the egg for a single day,” Raza said as she opened the bag at her side and slipped the egg into it carefully. After making sure it was secure, the Skydancer turned and began heading back the way they came, pausing to glance back at Nightshade when the Mirror didn’t follow.

“I’m going to finish scouting out the new route,” Nightshade decided firmly.

“Alone? No you’re not,” Raza said firmly. Not because she didn’t trust him; to be perfectly honest, she did trust the assassin, but there was no way she would allow anyone to wander around alone, especially in uncharted territory like they were in now.

“I’m more than capable-”

“I don’t care how capable you are, you’re not scouting alone, and that’s final,” Raza snapped. Nightshade’s tail flicked in annoyance, both from being interrupted so frequently and at the argument they were having. Raza sighed, her voice softening. “You’re too important for me to risk losing,” she said, knowing exactly how to convince Nightshade to do what she wanted.

The Mirror seemed to go through some internal conflict before sighing and muttering something under his breath.

“Damn you and your flattery,” Nightshade growled, shaking his head with a grin. “You’re so manipulative,” he mused as he moved to walk beside Raza, the two of them making their way back to the clan.

“Perhaps. But you see right through my words and listen to me anyway, so what does that say about you?” Raza asked, flashing him a smirk.

“That I'm your best friend?” He offered smugly, returning the smirk.

“If that makes you happy, then sure.”

“I hate you.”

“We both know you’re lying.”

“I should be back by sundown,” Razatharia told the female Guardian in charge of watching over the nesting grounds.


45415065_350.png


“Of course,” Equinox said cheerfully. “The egg is in good talons; I’ll make sure to take good care of it until you return.”

“Thank you,” Raza said, smiling despite the nervousness she felt leaving the egg where she couldn’t keep an eye on it herself. It was surprising- or, actually, perhaps it wasn’t so surprising- how quickly Raza had gotten attached to the unhatched egg.

With everything figured out, Raza, along with the small group of dragons that were accompanying her to the peace meeting, said their goodbyes and set out.

Equinox watched her leader leave, then turned her attention to the unhatched Nocturne egg left in her care.

“Don’t worry, little one, you’re safe with me.”



tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png



Humming cheerfully as she finished tidying one of the nests, Equinox double-checked her work before nodding, satisfied. Her hummed tune came to a halt as one of her many familiars fluttered in front of her snout; this one in particular, a Primrose Mith appropriately nicknamed “Rose”.

“Oh dear,” Equinox mumbled worriedly as the pink mith waved its little arms and pointed. “What did I forget this time?” She asked as she followed the familiar through the nesting grounds. When they approached the area the Nocturne egg had been left, Equinox suddenly remembered she was supposed to be keeping a close eye on the egg, for the leader herself.

Equinox wasn’t too worried; the nesting grounds were completely safe, and constantly patrolled by all of her helpful familiars, ranging from many different miths to floracats to dryads and satyrs, as well as a few other random creatures here and there. Mostly miths though.

Equinox looked over the nest for the egg, dread slowly gripping her as she didn’t see the Nocturne egg anywhere. Panicking a bit, the Guardian tore through the nest, but found no sign of the egg. Thinking that perhaps she had gotten confused and forgotten which nest she left the egg in, Equinox quickly moved about, checking every nook and cranny in the nesting grounds.

But to no avail. The egg was gone.

“Too easy,” the Imperial mused coldly as he silently slipped back into his research lab, the unhatched Nocturne egg tucked under one wing. Glancing around the large room briefly, Comet made his way to the back, where a doorway connected this room to his own personal quarters. After entering the room and firmly closing and locking the door behind him, Comet moved his desk to the side, which was easy thanks to the wheels it had, and opened up the secret door hidden behind it.

Descending down the dark spiral staircase, Comet grinned coldly as his mind began running calculations and hypotheses. The staircase came to an end, opening up into a huge cavernous area; Comet’s true laboratory. He was the only one who knew about it, save for the few unfortunate souls trapped down here until the day they died.

There were many hallways that branched out from the center room, and Comet had no trouble navigating the somewhat maze-like sprawl of hallways, quickly arriving at the desired room. Filled with various alchemic tools and apparatuses. Pulling on his rubber gloves, Comet took the egg out from under his wing, holding it up to inspect it closely.

After carefully placing the egg on the counter of the large desk pressed up against one of the walls, Comet opened one of the drawers and rummaged around until he located an empty notebook. Flipping it open and grabbing a quill and a bottle of ink, Comet wrote down a quick summary of the egg’s current state, muttering to himself under his breath as he did.

He wrote down his planned tests, and what effect he assumed it may have on the hatchling inside, before putting the quill down and focusing back on the egg itself.

“Congratulations,” Comet drawled. “You’re going to further science and alchemy with your contribution,” he said as he picked up the egg and placed it in an empty cauldron. Setting up his tools and getting out his various vials and beakers of different solutions and chemical compounds.

“Don’t worry, you shouldn’t feel a thing, and even better, you should come out of this experiment alive! How lucky for you,” Comet mused apathetically as he measured out his ingredients and mixed them together in separate beakers. The liquid hissed and sizzled as the chemicals reacted to each other.

Satisfied with the fluorescent blue solution he had created, Comet moved to the cauldron and poured the substance over the egg, covering it completely. Steam rose up from where the thick liquid made contact with the egg, before the substance slowly disappeared; seeping through the eggshell. The egg seemed to pulse with light a few times, like a glowing heartbeat, before the glow faded, and the egg appeared to be no different than it had moments before the experiment.

Grabbing the quill, Comet wrote out some more notes before carefully grabbing the egg in his gloved talons and wrapping it up in a sheet of fabric. With his test put into action, all he had to do now was return the egg and wait for it to hatch to study the effects.

How wonderful.



tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png



Equinox paced worriedly, her panic growing the closer the sun dipped to the horizon. Razatharia would be returning soon, and Equinox was terrified of what that meant. She was so deep in her downward spiral of thoughts that the Guardian didn’t notice another dragon approach. The miths that had been trying to comfort Equinox quickly flitted away as they skittishly hid from the imposing Imperial.

“I heard you lost a certain something,” Comet began smoothly as he moved to stand beside Equinox. The Guardian jumped slightly, startled.

“O-oh, um…” Equinox tried desperately to think up an excuse of some sort.

“Don’t worry,” Comet said smoothly, taking out the Nocturne egg out from under his wing. “I found this, and figured you must have… misplaced it.” He held the egg out to Equinox, who quickly took the egg, looking it over for any cracks and relaxing when everything appeared to be fine.

“Comet! Thank you so much!” Equinox burst out, on the edge of tears. Comet shrugged.

“Of course,” he said dismissively. “Though, maybe don’t tell the leader about this little mishap. The egg is fine, after all, and you wouldn’t want her to be angry for no reason, would you? I’m just looking out for your best interest,” Comet suggested. Equinox considered his words for a moment, nodding slowly.

Razatharia didn’t need to know about the disappearance of the egg. Everything was fine now.

“Thank you,” the Guardian repeated.

“Happy to help,” the Imperial replied smoothly as he left, a smug smirk tugging at the corners of his mouth.

“That meeting couldn’t have gone smoother,” Mark said happily as they returned to their clan. “Such a friendly clan,” he mused with a smile.

“Maybe a little too friendly, don’t you think?” Nightshade intoned suspiciously, grinning at Raza. The Skydancer didn’t seem to hear him though. “...Raza?” Nightshade prompted, brushing up against her.

“Hm?” The leader blinked a few times, startled out of her daze as she turned her attention to the assassin. “Sorry, what was that?” Nightshade sighed.

“Nothing. Are you doing alright? I told you staying out late was a bad idea. You should listen to me more,” Nightshade said playfully, trying to lighten her mood. Raza only hummed in response, making the Mirror frown slightly. She wasn’t usually this despondent, though he supposed she could just be tired from the meeting. While it had gone surprisingly well, Raza was still an introvert, and being in a large group for that long probably took its toll on her.

“Do you need anything else from me?” Raza asked as she turned to look at Mark. The red and black Mirror looked over his notes from the peace meeting, humming thoughtfully for a moment before shaking his head.

“Not really, everything seems to be in order. But if anything else comes up, we can figure it out later,” Mark said, closing his book of notes and stowing it away in his book bag. “I’ll take this over to the library for Blacksand to go through,” he said, darting off.

Razatharia immediately turned around and began heading towards the nesting grounds, with Nightshade quickly catching up to her and matching her pace. He didn’t bother asking where she was going; he already knew.

Equinox greeted Raza at the entrance to the nesting grounds and promptly returned the egg safe and sound. Razatharia let out a small sigh of relief when she found the egg to be perfectly...

The Skydancer’s antennae twitched, and she tilted her head at the egg. Though it had been completely dormant when she left it, the egg now gave off a very clear active energy; the dragonet inside was getting ready to hatch very soon.

Raza opened her mouth to ask Equinox some questions, but before she could, a crack splintered across the eggshell. Startled, Raza gently put the egg down in the nest beside her, watching without a word as the egg slowly cracked and began falling apart.

Finally, the tiny dragonet pushed itself free from the egg, revealing a Nocturne with strange markings. At least, it was strange for a Nocturne to hatch with markings, considering they usually had unpatterned hides. But as the tiny hatchling let out a curious chirp, Raza’s questions dissipated completely, and she gently scooped up the small Nocturne.

“Hello,” Raza greeted gently with a soft smile. Sky blue eyes stared up at her, innocent and curious.

“...What will you name her?” Equinox asked quietly, watching with calm excitement. Raza tilted her head slightly in thought.

“I think I’ll call her Amity.”

Her talons barely made a sound; each step deliberate and soft. There were many creatures out here that could easily stand up to a dragon in a fight, and Amity wasn’t much of a fighter in the first place. Stealth was definitely the better option. Besides, she didn’t want to accidentally scare away any wildlife; that was one of the reasons she loved coming out here on her own. Dragonflies lazily zipped through the bamboo, crickets chirped as they hid in the grass, and the wind sang a soft song as it danced through the forest. Amity loved everything about this place, from the towering bamboo, to the smallest insect. There was a rustling sound not too far away, and Amity instinctively froze, not moving a muscle as she stared in the direction the noise had come from. Something ran out of the bushes at her suddenly, barking. [img]http://flightrising.com/images/cms/familiar/art/1034.png[/img] The hainu pounced on Amity, and promptly began licking her face happily. Amity laughed quietly, gently pushing the slobbering dog off of her. “Hello again,” she greeted, petting the hainu. Amity had known this particular hainu for a while now, and the two had become fast friends. The hainu sat down, tail wagging, and looked at Amity expectantly. The Nocturne chuckled lightly. “Okay, let’s do this,” Amity decided, smiling slightly. She took a deep breath as she cleared her mind and watched the Hainu sitting in front of her. Her tail involuntarily twitched, wanting to wag like the hainu’s tail. She mentally put herself in the hainu’s place, imagining what it might be like to be the creature instead of herself. Amity felt her thoughts slip away as she and the hainu both went into a strange daze for a few moments, before blinking at each other in unison. They grinned, joy bubbling through them. The pair began moving through the bamboo forest together; two bodies sharing the collective consciousness of both Amity and the hainu. Amity could hear and smell so many more things; the crickets seemed louder, and they picked up the scent of something that was recognized as a toad of some sort. Talons and paws walked side by side in harmony, both experiencing the same thing. They travelled through the bamboo, moving together as one. They let out a cheerful bark, two voices as one. They experienced the world together, two minds as one. Time passed; it was nearly impossible for either of them to keep track of how much time, exactly, but time indeed passed. Eventually, the sun began to dip lower and lower to the hidden horizon, and it was time for the two of them to go their separate ways yet again. Gently severing the link between their two minds, Amity said goodbye to the hainu, watching as it yipped happily before running off. Blinking a few times and looking around to get her bearings, Amity slowly became accustomed to being just herself again. Taking her journal out from the bag at her side, Amity opened up to a blank page and began writing down everything she could remember from the experience she had just had. It had been awhile since Amity had accidentally discovered her strange ability, and at first, she hadn’t been able to remember anything other than a few feelings and flashes of strange memories. Everything had felt like a dream, and like most dreams, the memories tended to hover just outside her mind, not quite forgotten, but unable to be remembered. When she was younger, Amity had asked around, trying to figure out the best way to remember dreams. The most common answer had been keeping a dream journal. After that, Amity did her best to write down anything she remembered, and slowly but surely, she got better at remembering the experiences. Amity read over what she had written, checking for any mistakes or things she had missed. Satisfied with the journal entry, she closed the book and slipped it back inside her bag, turning around to head back home. As she walked, Amity’s mind wandered. Not for the first time, she wondered if there was anyone else out there like her. Deciding if there was, they would probably keep their ability a secret, just like her, Amity directed her thoughts to something else. Like the energetic and upbeat Mirror that was no doubt awaiting her return, like always. [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=46140756] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/461408/46140756_350.png[/img] [/url] True to her predictions, Tiercel was sitting at the edge of the bamboo forest, waiting for Amity. The Mirror leapt to his talons when he spotted the Nocturne, and bounded over to her cheerfully. “Amity! Wow, you were out there longer than usual. It’s almost sunset! Where were you?” Tiercel chirped, wrapping a wing around Amity in a half-hug. “I was just exploring,” Amity replied dismissively. “What about you? What have you been up to?” “Waiting for you,” Tiercel said with a shrug. “That’s basically all I do when you’re gone, you know.” Amity shook her head at him and sighed, but she was smiling. “Your world doesn’t revolve around me, Tiercel,” she chided. “Uh, jokes on you, it kinda does,” Tiercel replied haughtily, then nuzzled her playfully. “But whatever! You’ve been gone all day, let’s go do something together,” he began excitedly, his four eyes sparkling mischievously. “I have an amazing idea for what we can do. You’re gonna love it!” “Oh no,” Amity said with a sigh, mentally preparing herself. “I’m not sure I want to know,” she mused, smiling slightly despite her words. “Oh you [i]definitely[/i] want to know,” Tiercel insisted, bouncing slightly in excitement. “There’s a new creature that was brought to the Familiar Sanctuary! Amaruq doesn’t really want anyone showing up and stressing out the new creature while it adjusts to its new home, so no one’s allowed there right now,” Tiercel explained, grinning slyly at Amity. “Tiercel, no-” “Tiercel, yes!” Tiercel interrupted. “We’re going to sneak in and see what the new creature is! You love animals; don’t you want to see what it is? Don’t say no, we both know that’s a lie!” Tiercel nudged Amity excitedly, grinning at her. “It’ll be fun, trust me!” “I don’t think it’s a good idea,” Amity began slowly, but hesitated as Tiercel sat down, cocked his head and stared at her pleadingly, reminding her of a lost puppy. She sighed quietly. “We’re going to be in so much trouble if we’re caught,” she noted. Tiercel leapt back to his feet, grinning triumphantly. “So, let’s just not get caught! Simple,” Tiercel decided, crouching to let Amity climb onto his back. Being a Nocturne, Amity wasn’t very fast on the ground. Tiercel on the other hand was a Mirror, which were quite well-known for being fast runners. Tiercel was much faster and stronger than Amity, which wasn’t all that surprising considering the rigorous training he put himself through. After making sure Amity was settled on his back, Tiercel flashed the Nocturne a cheerful grin before slowly breaking into a run. He snuck around the edge of the clan, going around behind the massive Greenhouse, where most of the plants were grown and cultivated, and making his way towards the Familiar Sanctuary, which housed an array of different creatures. “Going up?” Tiercel whispered playfully, his way of telling Amity to hold on tight because he was about to do some flying. Despite most Mirrors preferring to travel on the ground, Tiercel was just as comfortable in the air as he was on the ground. Perhaps being a Windborn dragon had a small part to play in that, but for the most part, Tiercel just really loved breaking stereotypes, and usually went out of his way to disprove them. Mirrors don’t talk much? Tiercel is almost constantly talking. Mirrors don’t fly? Well would you look at that, Tiercel just flew through a tornado just to prove everyone wrong. Amity loved that about her best friend; no matter what anyone said, it wouldn’t hinder Tiercel in the slightest. He never gave up, and never stopped striving to be even more than he already was. After feeling Amity tighten her grip on him, Tiercel leapt into the air, flying over the tall walls of the Familiar Sanctuary. This particular section of the Sanctuary was an outdoor enclosure that was open to the sky; a perfect back door for the mischievous Mirror and his reluctant best friend. There weren’t many creatures out at the moment; it was sunset, which was the transitioning time for all the nocturnal and diurnal creatures to slowly switch places. Slipping inside the building, Tiercel snuck through the corridor, head swiveling to look around for where the new creature might be, as well as keeping an eye out for the dragon who ran the Familiar Sanctuary and took care of all its inhabitants, Amaruq. “It’s gotta be around here somewhere,” Tiercel murmured, pausing to look into one of the enclosures. “I’m pretty sure they have a place where they keep new and more wild creatures, so that they can slowly integrate them into the Sanctuary,” Amity said. “I have no idea where it might be, though,” she added as Tiercel opened his mouth to ask a question. She knew he had been about to ask a question because of the way his head tilted slightly; he always did that. “Well, I guess we’ll just have to explore until we find it,” Tiercel decided with a shrug, grinning as he quietly raced down the hall, searching. Amity frowned slightly, beginning to feel nervous as Tiercel disappeared around another corner. She hated how maze-like this place was, and it always made her feel uneasy, which is why she usually avoided it despite wanting to see the creatures that lived here. She wasn’t exactly sure what the Familiar Sanctuary had been before, but she knew it wasn’t originally built for the purposes it was used for now. “...Tiercel?” Amity called out quietly as she made it to the other corner and peeked around it, searching for the energetic Mirror. Her nervousness grew as she didn’t see or hear him. Wandering alone in the bamboo forest, Amity could handle, but wandering alone in this place? Amity’s tail coiled, and her wings pressed tighter to her body as she carefully continued down the hall. She nearly yelped when Tiercel poked his head out from one of the doorways. “I think I found it!” Tiercel exclaimed in a whisper before Amity could say anything. The Mirror disappeared back into the room, and Amity followed hesitantly. The room was mostly empty, with one wall made almost entirely of glass, displaying an outdoor enclosure with tall savanna grass filling nearly the entire thing. There was a door on one side of the glass wall, and Tiercel was already fiddling around with it in an attempt to get it open. “Tiercel, I don’t think going in there is a good idea,” Amity said quietly as she stepped closer to the glass, trying to see if she could find whatever was in there, if there even [i]was[/i] anything in there. “Too late,” Tiercel mused cheerfully as he pulled open the door, flashing Amity a grin. “We don’t know what’s in there; what if it’s dangerous?” Amity tried, but Tiercel had already entered the enclosure. Amity stood there for a few moments, silently panicking, before quickly following him, knowing leaving him alone was probably a bad idea. Entering the enclosure, Amity found that the grass was so tall she couldn’t see Tiercel anywhere, but her instincts stopped her from calling out to him. If whatever creature here was a predator, she didn’t want to alert it to her position. Not like it wouldn’t have already noticed a couple of dragonets wandering into its enclosure, but still. Some of the nearby grass rustled, and Amity stiffened. But it was only Tiercel, who grinned when he spotted the frightened Nocturne. He wordlessly gestured for Amity to follow him, then turned around and began heading back the way he came. Tiercel hesitated, tail flicking towards Amity. Understanding what he wanted, Amity gently grabbed the end of Tiercel’s tail in her maw, letting him guide her through the grass without risk of him going too fast and losing her. They had used this trick many times before, and it was especially useful for when navigating by heat vision instead of light was more efficient, since Mirrors had a set of heat-seeing eyes. Amity had always wondered what it was like to be able to see things in temperature instead of light, and she knew she [i]could[/i] find out, if she used her ability, but the problem with that was no one knew about her ability, other than herself, and she had to keep it that way. Even though she trusted Tiercel, more than any other dragon, she still couldn’t bring herself to reveal her ability to him. Amity’s thoughts were cut short by Tiercel stopping. Amity sidled up to the Mirror, following his gaze into a small clearing where the grass was much shorter. There was a small pond, and a few large rocks, dappled grey and black, that probably absorbed a lot of heat during the day from the sun. The rocks seemed to move suddenly, the grey and black shifting, until Amity realized what she was seeing was a creature that had been lying on the rocks get up. It was a feline of some sort, and while Amity would have loved to stare at it and take in the details, she was a little busy being scared for her life as the big cat’s eyes locked onto her and Tiercel, its tail twitching. [img]http://flightrising.com/images/cms/familiar/art/28238.png[/img] The large cat darted over swiftly, so fast neither dragon had a chance to even think before it was upon them. The creature pounced on Amity, easily knocking her to the ground, then lashed out at Tiercel with a paw as the Mirror tried to come to Amity’s rescue. Despite how scared Amity was, she noticed the cat had attacked, yes, but its claws were sheathed. The fear left her as Amity realized this creature didn’t intend to hurt them; it was only playing. Wriggling out of the cat’s grip Amity rolled away and got to her talons. The creature dropped to the ground, crouched and ready to pounce. Amity instinctively mimicked the pose, tail twitching slightly just like the cat’s. Tiercel stayed quiet as he watched the two of them with hesitant fascination. The cat darted around suddenly, batting at Amity, but not hitting her. Amity parroted the movements, and soon the two were darting around each other playfully, with the large cat practically running circles around the Nocturne. It wasn’t long before Amity ran out of stamina. The cat, on the other hand, was just as energetic as when they had started, and continued to dart around, spines rustling. “Uh... we may want to get out of here soon,” Tiercel said as he glanced up at the darkening sky. “Amaruq should be back soon, and we probably don’t want to run into her,” he explained. Amity nodded, then hesitantly reached out a talon to the cat. It stopped darting around to come up to her and allowed the Nocturne to pet it a few times in farewell. Amity watched for a moment as the creature returned to the rocks it had been lying on earlier and sat down, watching its two visitors leave. Amity grabbed onto Tiercel’s tail again as they made their way through the grass as quickly as they could, and out of the enclosure, making sure to close the door on their way out. Tiercel poked his head out into the hall, looking both ways before nodding at Amity. The two of them crept out as quietly as possible, retracing their steps. “Almost there,” Tiercel whispered as he poked his head around another corner. He withdrew quickly, eyes wide. “Amaruq is over there,” he breathed. “We’ll have to go back the way we came and look for an alternate exit, or risk being found,” he said, keeping his voice as quiet as possible. Despite the tense situation and risk of getting into a lot of trouble if they were found, Tiercel was grinning, clearly enjoying the suspense and challenge. Amity silently wondered why, exactly, she had ever agreed to this. Without another word, the two of them quietly turned around to go back the way they had come. Amity glanced back in alarm as she heard barking behind them, and spotted a semi-familiar brown dog. [img]http://www1.flightrising.com/dgen/dressing-room/dummy?breed=14&gender=0&skin=0&apparel=25525,22046&xt=dressing.png[/img] The Sussex Spaniel yapped loudly, giving away Amity and Tiercel’s presence. Amity knew the dog belonged to Amaruq, who was no doubt now on her way to apprehend them. Before she knew it, Tiercel had ducked under Amity, effectively tossing her onto his back, and began running. Amity quickly held on, and glanced back as they turned around a corner just in time to see what appeared to be, at first glance, an impossibly massive brown wolf. But Amity recognized it as Amaruq, the Guardian that ran the Familiar Sanctuary and cared for all the creatures within it. [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=45995557] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/459956/45995557_350.png[/img] [/url] Less than a moment later, and Amaruq was out of view once more as Tiercel darted through the halls searching for an escape. The Mirror was much faster than the small dog whose barking slowly got quieter the further they travelled, but Amity had no doubt Amaruq would catch up to them if they didn’t get out of here soon. Yet again, Amity wondered why she let Tiercel drag her into stressful situations like this one. Her heart was pounding, and she knew they would be in so much trouble if they were caught, which, at this point, they might have already been. If Amaruq had recognized the two of them in the brief moment they were in her line of sight, then Razatharia, the clan leader and Amity’s adoptive mother, would surely hear of it. Tiercel slowed his pace as he came to another corner, and peeked around it before continuing. As far as Amity could tell, they had more or less travelled in a giant loop around the Sanctuary, but they were headed towards the actual entrance of the Sanctuary, instead of through one of the enclosures. Amaruq was nowhere in sight as Tiercel and Amity slipped through the main entrance, and ran off into the night. Tiercel laughed as the Sanctuary disappeared from their line of sight, and slowed down to let Amity hop off his back. “That was way too close,” Amity said with a sigh as they began walking together. “Aw, come on! Admit it, you had fun,” Teircel accused playfully, lightly flicking Amity with his tail. His step had a bounce to it, and he was grinning enthusiastically. Amity couldn’t help but smile softly back. Even if it had been terrifying, she couldn’t deny that doing things with Tiercel [i]did[/i] make her happy. “...Yeah, I guess so,” Amity answered finally. “It was pretty cool seeing that cat… I think it might have been a Quillrunner of some sort? It was a little too dark to tell though, and I’m no expert,” she said with a shrug. “I’ll take your word for it; you might not think you’re an expert, but I sure do,” Tiercel mused cheerfully. The pair paused as they made it to the palace. It was a pretty imposing structure, and Amity knew Raza didn’t love living in it, but being the leader, it kinda didn't make sense for her [i]not[/i] to live there. And by extension, Amity lived there too. Actually, a talonfull of dragons lived in the palace, Tiercel included. However, they happened to live on opposite sides of the palace, which, in Amity’s opinion, was way too big. It also meant that now was when they would be parting ways, until tomorrow, when Tiercel inevitably dragged Amity into even more shenanigans. Amity started to say goodbye, but Tiercel raised a talon to stop her. “I didn’t get to spend as much time with you, since you were out so late today, so… how about I walk you to your room?” Tiercel offered with a smile. “You live on the other side of the palace; it’s quite a detour for you to go all the way to my room,” Amity pointed out. Tiercel shrugged. “I don’t care. I’m also pretty fast, so it shouldn’t take me too long to get across the palace,” Teircel mused, then wrapped a wing around Amity and began walking with her before she could protest anymore. Their walk was filled with idle chatter and occasional laughter, but it was cut short as they made it to Amity’s room, only to find a Skydancer there waiting for them. The clan leader glanced between the two dragonets, her antennae twitching. “There you are,” Razatharia began, focusing on Amity. “I was just about to go looking for you. I wanted to talk to you about some... stuff,” she said, glancing at Tiercel. The Mirror got the hint; this was a private matter between mother and daughter. “Well, see you tomorrow, Amity!” Tiercel said cheerfully, waving a wing in goodbye as he disappeared around the corner. Amity didn’t even have time to return the gesture before he was gone. “...What did you want to talk about?” Amity asked as she turned her attention back to Raza. “Why don’t we take this inside?” Raza suggested instead of answering, nodding at Amity’s room. Amity nodded slowly, and the two slipped inside the bedroom quietly. It wasn’t [i]uncommon[/i] for Raza to take time to talk to Amity, but the Nocturne couldn’t help but feel a bit nervous, as she had no idea what this was about. “I wanted to discuss that friend of yours with you,” Razatharia began slowly. “I think he’s a bad influence on you.” [img]https://66.media.tumblr.com/07655acabf5f30100a4bbe954460a1eb/tumblr_o1zrsv44JN1ufdm5xo3_400.png[/img] @Dragonfruiteen @AlpineFresh @Millapede85 @Watercolour @dancingcrane [/center]

Bamboo swayed gently in the wind as Amity quietly walked through the dense grass forest. Her talons barely made a sound; each step deliberate and soft. There were many creatures out here that could easily stand up to a dragon in a fight, and Amity wasn’t much of a fighter in the first place. Stealth was definitely the better option. Besides, she didn’t want to accidentally scare away any wildlife; that was one of the reasons she loved coming out here on her own.

Dragonflies lazily zipped through the bamboo, crickets chirped as they hid in the grass, and the wind sang a soft song as it danced through the forest. Amity loved everything about this place, from the towering bamboo, to the smallest insect.

There was a rustling sound not too far away, and Amity instinctively froze, not moving a muscle as she stared in the direction the noise had come from. Something ran out of the bushes at her suddenly, barking.


1034.png


The hainu pounced on Amity, and promptly began licking her face happily. Amity laughed quietly, gently pushing the slobbering dog off of her.

“Hello again,” she greeted, petting the hainu. Amity had known this particular hainu for a while now, and the two had become fast friends. The hainu sat down, tail wagging, and looked at Amity expectantly. The Nocturne chuckled lightly.

“Okay, let’s do this,” Amity decided, smiling slightly. She took a deep breath as she cleared her mind and watched the Hainu sitting in front of her. Her tail involuntarily twitched, wanting to wag like the hainu’s tail. She mentally put herself in the hainu’s place, imagining what it might be like to be the creature instead of herself.

Amity felt her thoughts slip away as she and the hainu both went into a strange daze for a few moments, before blinking at each other in unison. They grinned, joy bubbling through them. The pair began moving through the bamboo forest together; two bodies sharing the collective consciousness of both Amity and the hainu.

Amity could hear and smell so many more things; the crickets seemed louder, and they picked up the scent of something that was recognized as a toad of some sort. Talons and paws walked side by side in harmony, both experiencing the same thing. They travelled through the bamboo, moving together as one. They let out a cheerful bark, two voices as one. They experienced the world together, two minds as one.

Time passed; it was nearly impossible for either of them to keep track of how much time, exactly, but time indeed passed. Eventually, the sun began to dip lower and lower to the hidden horizon, and it was time for the two of them to go their separate ways yet again. Gently severing the link between their two minds, Amity said goodbye to the hainu, watching as it yipped happily before running off.

Blinking a few times and looking around to get her bearings, Amity slowly became accustomed to being just herself again. Taking her journal out from the bag at her side, Amity opened up to a blank page and began writing down everything she could remember from the experience she had just had.

It had been awhile since Amity had accidentally discovered her strange ability, and at first, she hadn’t been able to remember anything other than a few feelings and flashes of strange memories. Everything had felt like a dream, and like most dreams, the memories tended to hover just outside her mind, not quite forgotten, but unable to be remembered.

When she was younger, Amity had asked around, trying to figure out the best way to remember dreams. The most common answer had been keeping a dream journal. After that, Amity did her best to write down anything she remembered, and slowly but surely, she got better at remembering the experiences.

Amity read over what she had written, checking for any mistakes or things she had missed. Satisfied with the journal entry, she closed the book and slipped it back inside her bag, turning around to head back home.

As she walked, Amity’s mind wandered. Not for the first time, she wondered if there was anyone else out there like her. Deciding if there was, they would probably keep their ability a secret, just like her, Amity directed her thoughts to something else. Like the energetic and upbeat Mirror that was no doubt awaiting her return, like always.



46140756_350.png



True to her predictions, Tiercel was sitting at the edge of the bamboo forest, waiting for Amity. The Mirror leapt to his talons when he spotted the Nocturne, and bounded over to her cheerfully.

“Amity! Wow, you were out there longer than usual. It’s almost sunset! Where were you?” Tiercel chirped, wrapping a wing around Amity in a half-hug.

“I was just exploring,” Amity replied dismissively. “What about you? What have you been up to?”

“Waiting for you,” Tiercel said with a shrug. “That’s basically all I do when you’re gone, you know.” Amity shook her head at him and sighed, but she was smiling.

“Your world doesn’t revolve around me, Tiercel,” she chided.

“Uh, jokes on you, it kinda does,” Tiercel replied haughtily, then nuzzled her playfully. “But whatever! You’ve been gone all day, let’s go do something together,” he began excitedly, his four eyes sparkling mischievously. “I have an amazing idea for what we can do. You’re gonna love it!”

“Oh no,” Amity said with a sigh, mentally preparing herself. “I’m not sure I want to know,” she mused, smiling slightly despite her words.

“Oh you definitely want to know,” Tiercel insisted, bouncing slightly in excitement. “There’s a new creature that was brought to the Familiar Sanctuary! Amaruq doesn’t really want anyone showing up and stressing out the new creature while it adjusts to its new home, so no one’s allowed there right now,” Tiercel explained, grinning slyly at Amity.

“Tiercel, no-”

“Tiercel, yes!” Tiercel interrupted. “We’re going to sneak in and see what the new creature is! You love animals; don’t you want to see what it is? Don’t say no, we both know that’s a lie!” Tiercel nudged Amity excitedly, grinning at her. “It’ll be fun, trust me!”

“I don’t think it’s a good idea,” Amity began slowly, but hesitated as Tiercel sat down, cocked his head and stared at her pleadingly, reminding her of a lost puppy. She sighed quietly.

“We’re going to be in so much trouble if we’re caught,” she noted. Tiercel leapt back to his feet, grinning triumphantly.

“So, let’s just not get caught! Simple,” Tiercel decided, crouching to let Amity climb onto his back. Being a Nocturne, Amity wasn’t very fast on the ground. Tiercel on the other hand was a Mirror, which were quite well-known for being fast runners. Tiercel was much faster and stronger than Amity, which wasn’t all that surprising considering the rigorous training he put himself through.

After making sure Amity was settled on his back, Tiercel flashed the Nocturne a cheerful grin before slowly breaking into a run. He snuck around the edge of the clan, going around behind the massive Greenhouse, where most of the plants were grown and cultivated, and making his way towards the Familiar Sanctuary, which housed an array of different creatures.

“Going up?” Tiercel whispered playfully, his way of telling Amity to hold on tight because he was about to do some flying. Despite most Mirrors preferring to travel on the ground, Tiercel was just as comfortable in the air as he was on the ground. Perhaps being a Windborn dragon had a small part to play in that, but for the most part, Tiercel just really loved breaking stereotypes, and usually went out of his way to disprove them. Mirrors don’t talk much? Tiercel is almost constantly talking. Mirrors don’t fly? Well would you look at that, Tiercel just flew through a tornado just to prove everyone wrong.

Amity loved that about her best friend; no matter what anyone said, it wouldn’t hinder Tiercel in the slightest. He never gave up, and never stopped striving to be even more than he already was.

After feeling Amity tighten her grip on him, Tiercel leapt into the air, flying over the tall walls of the Familiar Sanctuary. This particular section of the Sanctuary was an outdoor enclosure that was open to the sky; a perfect back door for the mischievous Mirror and his reluctant best friend.

There weren’t many creatures out at the moment; it was sunset, which was the transitioning time for all the nocturnal and diurnal creatures to slowly switch places. Slipping inside the building, Tiercel snuck through the corridor, head swiveling to look around for where the new creature might be, as well as keeping an eye out for the dragon who ran the Familiar Sanctuary and took care of all its inhabitants, Amaruq.

“It’s gotta be around here somewhere,” Tiercel murmured, pausing to look into one of the enclosures.

“I’m pretty sure they have a place where they keep new and more wild creatures, so that they can slowly integrate them into the Sanctuary,” Amity said. “I have no idea where it might be, though,” she added as Tiercel opened his mouth to ask a question. She knew he had been about to ask a question because of the way his head tilted slightly; he always did that.

“Well, I guess we’ll just have to explore until we find it,” Tiercel decided with a shrug, grinning as he quietly raced down the hall, searching. Amity frowned slightly, beginning to feel nervous as Tiercel disappeared around another corner. She hated how maze-like this place was, and it always made her feel uneasy, which is why she usually avoided it despite wanting to see the creatures that lived here. She wasn’t exactly sure what the Familiar Sanctuary had been before, but she knew it wasn’t originally built for the purposes it was used for now.

“...Tiercel?” Amity called out quietly as she made it to the other corner and peeked around it, searching for the energetic Mirror. Her nervousness grew as she didn’t see or hear him. Wandering alone in the bamboo forest, Amity could handle, but wandering alone in this place?

Amity’s tail coiled, and her wings pressed tighter to her body as she carefully continued down the hall. She nearly yelped when Tiercel poked his head out from one of the doorways.

“I think I found it!” Tiercel exclaimed in a whisper before Amity could say anything. The Mirror disappeared back into the room, and Amity followed hesitantly.

The room was mostly empty, with one wall made almost entirely of glass, displaying an outdoor enclosure with tall savanna grass filling nearly the entire thing. There was a door on one side of the glass wall, and Tiercel was already fiddling around with it in an attempt to get it open.

“Tiercel, I don’t think going in there is a good idea,” Amity said quietly as she stepped closer to the glass, trying to see if she could find whatever was in there, if there even was anything in there.

“Too late,” Tiercel mused cheerfully as he pulled open the door, flashing Amity a grin.

“We don’t know what’s in there; what if it’s dangerous?” Amity tried, but Tiercel had already entered the enclosure. Amity stood there for a few moments, silently panicking, before quickly following him, knowing leaving him alone was probably a bad idea.

Entering the enclosure, Amity found that the grass was so tall she couldn’t see Tiercel anywhere, but her instincts stopped her from calling out to him. If whatever creature here was a predator, she didn’t want to alert it to her position. Not like it wouldn’t have already noticed a couple of dragonets wandering into its enclosure, but still.

Some of the nearby grass rustled, and Amity stiffened. But it was only Tiercel, who grinned when he spotted the frightened Nocturne. He wordlessly gestured for Amity to follow him, then turned around and began heading back the way he came. Tiercel hesitated, tail flicking towards Amity. Understanding what he wanted, Amity gently grabbed the end of Tiercel’s tail in her maw, letting him guide her through the grass without risk of him going too fast and losing her. They had used this trick many times before, and it was especially useful for when navigating by heat vision instead of light was more efficient, since Mirrors had a set of heat-seeing eyes.

Amity had always wondered what it was like to be able to see things in temperature instead of light, and she knew she could find out, if she used her ability, but the problem with that was no one knew about her ability, other than herself, and she had to keep it that way. Even though she trusted Tiercel, more than any other dragon, she still couldn’t bring herself to reveal her ability to him.

Amity’s thoughts were cut short by Tiercel stopping. Amity sidled up to the Mirror, following his gaze into a small clearing where the grass was much shorter. There was a small pond, and a few large rocks, dappled grey and black, that probably absorbed a lot of heat during the day from the sun.

The rocks seemed to move suddenly, the grey and black shifting, until Amity realized what she was seeing was a creature that had been lying on the rocks get up. It was a feline of some sort, and while Amity would have loved to stare at it and take in the details, she was a little busy being scared for her life as the big cat’s eyes locked onto her and Tiercel, its tail twitching.

The large cat darted over swiftly, so fast neither dragon had a chance to even think before it was upon them. The creature pounced on Amity, easily knocking her to the ground, then lashed out at Tiercel with a paw as the Mirror tried to come to Amity’s rescue. Despite how scared Amity was, she noticed the cat had attacked, yes, but its claws were sheathed. The fear left her as Amity realized this creature didn’t intend to hurt them; it was only playing.

Wriggling out of the cat’s grip Amity rolled away and got to her talons. The creature dropped to the ground, crouched and ready to pounce. Amity instinctively mimicked the pose, tail twitching slightly just like the cat’s.

Tiercel stayed quiet as he watched the two of them with hesitant fascination. The cat darted around suddenly, batting at Amity, but not hitting her. Amity parroted the movements, and soon the two were darting around each other playfully, with the large cat practically running circles around the Nocturne.

It wasn’t long before Amity ran out of stamina. The cat, on the other hand, was just as energetic as when they had started, and continued to dart around, spines rustling.

“Uh... we may want to get out of here soon,” Tiercel said as he glanced up at the darkening sky. “Amaruq should be back soon, and we probably don’t want to run into her,” he explained.

Amity nodded, then hesitantly reached out a talon to the cat. It stopped darting around to come up to her and allowed the Nocturne to pet it a few times in farewell. Amity watched for a moment as the creature returned to the rocks it had been lying on earlier and sat down, watching its two visitors leave.

Amity grabbed onto Tiercel’s tail again as they made their way through the grass as quickly as they could, and out of the enclosure, making sure to close the door on their way out. Tiercel poked his head out into the hall, looking both ways before nodding at Amity. The two of them crept out as quietly as possible, retracing their steps.

“Almost there,” Tiercel whispered as he poked his head around another corner. He withdrew quickly, eyes wide. “Amaruq is over there,” he breathed. “We’ll have to go back the way we came and look for an alternate exit, or risk being found,” he said, keeping his voice as quiet as possible.

Despite the tense situation and risk of getting into a lot of trouble if they were found, Tiercel was grinning, clearly enjoying the suspense and challenge. Amity silently wondered why, exactly, she had ever agreed to this.

Without another word, the two of them quietly turned around to go back the way they had come. Amity glanced back in alarm as she heard barking behind them, and spotted a semi-familiar brown dog.


dummy?breed=14&gender=0&skin=0&apparel=25525,22046&xt=dressing.png


The Sussex Spaniel yapped loudly, giving away Amity and Tiercel’s presence. Amity knew the dog belonged to Amaruq, who was no doubt now on her way to apprehend them. Before she knew it, Tiercel had ducked under Amity, effectively tossing her onto his back, and began running. Amity quickly held on, and glanced back as they turned around a corner just in time to see what appeared to be, at first glance, an impossibly massive brown wolf. But Amity recognized it as Amaruq, the Guardian that ran the Familiar Sanctuary and cared for all the creatures within it.


45995557_350.png


Less than a moment later, and Amaruq was out of view once more as Tiercel darted through the halls searching for an escape. The Mirror was much faster than the small dog whose barking slowly got quieter the further they travelled, but Amity had no doubt Amaruq would catch up to them if they didn’t get out of here soon.

Yet again, Amity wondered why she let Tiercel drag her into stressful situations like this one. Her heart was pounding, and she knew they would be in so much trouble if they were caught, which, at this point, they might have already been. If Amaruq had recognized the two of them in the brief moment they were in her line of sight, then Razatharia, the clan leader and Amity’s adoptive mother, would surely hear of it.

Tiercel slowed his pace as he came to another corner, and peeked around it before continuing. As far as Amity could tell, they had more or less travelled in a giant loop around the Sanctuary, but they were headed towards the actual entrance of the Sanctuary, instead of through one of the enclosures.

Amaruq was nowhere in sight as Tiercel and Amity slipped through the main entrance, and ran off into the night. Tiercel laughed as the Sanctuary disappeared from their line of sight, and slowed down to let Amity hop off his back.

“That was way too close,” Amity said with a sigh as they began walking together.

“Aw, come on! Admit it, you had fun,” Teircel accused playfully, lightly flicking Amity with his tail. His step had a bounce to it, and he was grinning enthusiastically. Amity couldn’t help but smile softly back. Even if it had been terrifying, she couldn’t deny that doing things with Tiercel did make her happy.

“...Yeah, I guess so,” Amity answered finally. “It was pretty cool seeing that cat… I think it might have been a Quillrunner of some sort? It was a little too dark to tell though, and I’m no expert,” she said with a shrug.

“I’ll take your word for it; you might not think you’re an expert, but I sure do,” Tiercel mused cheerfully.

It also meant that now was when they would be parting ways, until tomorrow, when Tiercel inevitably dragged Amity into even more shenanigans.

Amity started to say goodbye, but Tiercel raised a talon to stop her.

“I didn’t get to spend as much time with you, since you were out so late today, so… how about I walk you to your room?” Tiercel offered with a smile.

“You live on the other side of the palace; it’s quite a detour for you to go all the way to my room,” Amity pointed out. Tiercel shrugged.

“I don’t care. I’m also pretty fast, so it shouldn’t take me too long to get across the palace,” Teircel mused, then wrapped a wing around Amity and began walking with her before she could protest anymore.

Their walk was filled with idle chatter and occasional laughter, but it was cut short as they made it to Amity’s room, only to find a Skydancer there waiting for them. The clan leader glanced between the two dragonets, her antennae twitching.

“Why don’t we take this inside?” Raza suggested instead of answering, nodding at Amity’s room. Amity nodded slowly, and the two slipped inside the bedroom quietly. It wasn’t uncommon for Raza to take time to talk to Amity, but the Nocturne couldn’t help but feel a bit nervous, as she had no idea what this was about.

“I wanted to discuss that friend of yours with you,” Razatharia began slowly. “I think he’s a bad influence on you.”
