[quote=Day 7] A geneology booth might be a bit of a stretch for a festival event, but I have been to some Ren Faire's that will do up family crests if you know yours, so I argue it's still in the realm of possibility! So time to do some research on your own dragons and I want you to tell me a fun fact about one of their relatives. It can be a detail about one of their parents or kids who still live in your clan, or you can have fun with it and try tracking back or forward to see how far their bloodline extends! Is your dragon a G1 with no kids? No problem! You can make the fun fact be about their adoptive family or how they came to your clan under ~mysterious circumstances~ As is Mistral Meals tradition, if you include a reference to this year's April Fools event in your response, you get two raffle tickets instead of one! (Please note this offer is ONLY for Day 7 entries; this will not impact Day 6 entries while it is still active).[/quote] Delta and Anaconda wandered towards another booth. This one sported a beautiful tree that stretched its branches all across the banner and a sign in the middle that read "Genealogy Records". Delta wondered why this would be amidst all of the activity booths, but she figured maybe it was just because the harpies were big on history as well as family lines. Anaconda spoke to one of the harpies running the booth, who pointed her towards a stack of large books. "There's about a dozen for each flight it looks like," Delta said, peering over her shoulder. "You're from the Viridian Labyrinth, right?" Anaconda nodded, disgruntledly shaking off a pile of gravel that was laying on top of it before cracking open one of the large volumes and flipping to the table of contents. "There always has to be a weird thing happening during Mistral Jamboree, huh..." she muttered absentmindedly as she trailed her claw over the page to where her clan name was. Another harpy fluttered over to Delta. "Do you need assistance finding your family tree as well?" she asked. Delta shook her head. She knew very well where she had come from; the matriarch of her Clan, Andromeda, as well as her mate, Atlantis, had told her from a young age that they had found her egg near their lair before they had even fully settled down. They had adopted her as their own, but there was no way to tell who Delta's egg had belonged to. Delta didn't really mind, though. She liked to believe that she had been an explorer even before she had hatched, destined to drift across the waves of Sornieth. "Oooh! Look here, Delta!" Anaconda called Delta back to the book she was looking at. "This big family tree here is mine." She pointed at one of the pages. "My furthest ancestor on my father's side is actually a snapper from Plague! I never knew that. I guess that's not far from home, really, since nature is sort of related. And past that, there's a lot of coatls and wildclaws from lairs all over Sornieth. And my mother's side has a similar story, but my furthest ancestor there is a spiral from the Southern Icefield." She grinned. "This is so cool! My family has basically travelled from everywhere. Just like you, I guess!" Anaconda swatted her teasingly with her wing and Delta smiled widely back.

She drifted off for a minute, going down memory lane. It had been 7 years since they had made their home and so many years later she's had 69 children. She chuckled. Most of them had been exalted, though her first born son stayed with them the longest. A real firecracker that one. He even fathered many dragons, before he decided to go serve the Gladekeeper. He loved nature and spent most of his time in the Viridian Labyrinth. He didn't care if he needed to sleep in a gravel filled crater on the way in Dragonhome, if it meant he could stay in the jungle for longer. He even got freckles everywhere, from how much he spent his time there. She was happy that he pursued what he loved. Nainsi caught up with her as she had just been standing there thinking. "What are you thinking, my love?" She smiled reminiscing. "There's a genealogy booth there. I was just thinking of our children. Do you think we should see what it's about?" Before she even finished the sentence he had already sped off towards it. Chavi smiled, shook her head and followed after him. They asked the harpies about their ways of family tree designs and styles in which they make them.

Fei and Khern decided to try to cheer her up and what better way, then going around the stalls. They saw a cooking themed one and dragged Cressida there. "Let's see what they have here!" Khern said chipperly.

Chavi / Nainsi


Chavi and Nainsi. The founders of the clan had decided to take a nice leisurely stroll amongst the stalls now that it was the last day and most dragons had already seen everything. Well Chavi strolled, Nainsi hopped around looking at every little thing.

From the corner of her eye she spotted something... different. A genealogy booth? She drifted off for a minute, going down memory lane. It had been 7 years since they had made their home and so many years later she's had 69 children. She chuckled. Most of them had been exalted, though her first born son stayed with them the longest.

Nainsi caught up with her as she had just been standing there thinking. "What are you thinking, my love?"

She smiled reminiscing. "There's a genealogy booth there. I was just thinking of our children. Do you think we should see what it's about?"

Before she even finished the sentence he had already sped off towards it. Chavi smiled, shook her head and followed after him.

Potato said to Nissa. Who is now his mate, that's right, Potato's a dad now! He's still freaking out from the news. "He created a potion, but it came to life and now it's his familiar." "Oh, that's a good one!" Nissa smiled, but had a gleam in her eyes. "Now did you know, that one of my great great great great great," she paused to take a breath, "great great great great [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/6895112]grandpas[/url] was so fascinated by junk, he wandered off from his old clan. His collection helped finance his new clan, kinda like what we've been doing recently, trading our junk. Also he met his partner because she stole a funny looking rock he had been interested in." "Wow. That must have took you a while to find that information." "Yep. I wonder if he collects Gravel?" Nissa mused. She, Potato and some of the other clan members had just finished dumping piles and piles of Gravel over at Marva's Marvelous Marvels. An interesting way to end the Mistral Jamboree. Nobody expects the Temporal Gravel Emporium. "I don't know what Marva's going to do with all that Gravel." Potato sighed. "I'm not buying what they are selling." "Well I do know Eis bought something from Marva, for one coin!" Eis is the Clan Leader. "Then they and Stroh went back to Harpy's Roost after leaving Mochi with us." Eis said it's good practice for parenting, and it wasn't fair to make Reishi look after her all the time. "I had no idea Mochi would try to hug a pile of Gravel. At least she's entertained." They had watched the [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/85074958]little Aether[/url] build a Gravel castle which is starting to look like a space station. It is honestly impressive. There was a genealogy booth right next to where she was working so Potato and Nissa decided to do some research. While keeping an eye on Mochi of course, she should be right behind the Gravel structure... "Uh, Potato? Where's Mochi?" Nissa squeaked. "She's not buried in the pile is she? Mochi?" "Oh gosh, oh no, oh gosh!" Potato looked around wildly, then he heard laughter and turned to the source. An angry Nocturne flew off, nearby was [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/forums/qnc/3218251/21#post_53829812]a colorful Tundra[/url]. The Tundra had been standing still when Mochi went to him and pounced right onto his back. Then the Tundra, who Potato just recognized as Diego, flew off with Mochi on him! "Mochi!!" The Veilspuns yelled and chased after him.
