Flambaby isn't actually related by blood to anyone in his family. One of the clan's scouts, a Snapper named Frostfall, was out on patrol when she encountered signs of a large Raptorik flock having passed through recently. Following the tracks, she eventually came upon a small rock outcropping, with clear evidence of a scuffle, and more tracks--this time including the easily identifiable prints of what she was certain had to be two Tundras--leading away from the site. Curious as to what had happened, she started investigating the outcrop more thoroughly, to eventually discover a single egg, well-hidden between rocks and shadow. There was no evidence of Raptorik activity here, only the faint remnants of pawprints, hastily erased as the dragon responsible had backed away and rejoined the obvious trail leading away from the small nook. It seemed the parents had hidden the egg here, to then lead the Raptorik flock away from their hatchling. No doubt they had intended to return, but when Frostfall nosed gently against the egg, her eyes widened in alarm at its temperature--lukewarm, at best. She wasn't that familiar with eggs of other Flights, but for a Fire egg to be anything other than scalding hot was a very bad sign; its parents must have been gone for days for it to have gotten this cold. That could only mean they wouldn't be returning. Grimly, she noted the cracks on the egg. She was unsure whether those were due to it being close to hatching or the drop in temperature damaging the outer layer, but she wasn't going to take chances. Taking the egg into her mouth, she started her trek back to her clan at full speed, continuously breathing a steady flame onto the egg so as to get its temperature up. The entrance to their lair was in sight when her relief was abruptly replaced with ice-cold dread when she felt the egg start to crack in her mouth. Frostfall expelled it in front of her, desperate to see the damage, what she could do-- And instead saw an extremely small blue floof shake off the remnants off the egg. Clearly disoriented, the tiny Tundra sniffed at the ground and the air around him, eyes screwed shut as he zig-zagged closer and closer until he bumped into Frostfall's leg. After some more thorough sniffing, his head slowly lifted, and large, fiery orange eyes opened with a series of furious blinks. The second the hatchling's gaze met her own, a wobbly attempt at a grin appeared on the Tundra's face. "Mama!" In hindsight, even if Frostfall hadn't fallen in love with Flambaby right then and there, she doubted she could've nipped his attachment in the bud. Unaware that Flambaby had imprinted on her, once she made it back to the clan, the best course of action to her seemed to be to hand him over to the clan's twin Flambebes to raise--they were of the same subspecies of Tundra, so surely they would best know how to care for him. The twins, Flambebe and Flambebe, were all too willing to adopt Flambaby, and the clan's third Flambebe--no relation--jumped at the chance to play uncle. [center] [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/10839666][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/108397/10839666.png[/img][/url][url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/10839665][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/108397/10839665.png[/img][/url][url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/60119645][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/601197/60119645.png[/img][/url] [/center] And while Flambaby quickly grew to love his mom, dad, and uncle, he would never stop seeking out his 'mama'. No matter where Frostfall went, Flambaby always seemed to be able to find her--and it was only then that she realised that he must have olfactorily imprinted on her. Tushar, Frostfall's mate, hadn't particularly cared for the hatchling to begin with, but once she explained Flambaby's imprinting, it turned into flat-out dislike. They had never been able to have hatchlings of their own, so while she understood where he was coming from, she couldn't--and wouldn't, even if she did--change the situation. She'd told him once that Flambaby would be thrilled to have his family extend even further to include a 'papa', as well, but that had been shut down with nothing more than the most withering glare she had ever received from her mate. It seemed Tushar took Flambaby's mere existence as a personal insult, and the years had not changed his opinion for the better. Frostfall gave a wan sigh as she looked out at the festivities, and more specifically, at her son as he weaved through the crowds with a bag fastened to his back, occasionally pausing to throw in... rocks? Sand? She couldn't be sure, Flambaby had a tendency to switch obsessions about thrice a week. But she did notice when he stopped at the cooking stations, and gave the chefs his best innocent hatchling eyes, inevitably getting a variety of plant ingredients and leftovers in return. No, she thought as the little Tundra finally spotted her and grinned, dodging legs and tails as he sprinted in her direction. She wouldn't change a thing. -- Thank you for coming to my TED talk I'll be here for the next foreseeable forever

Doorsguy has had partners before, but his love life is...not thr best and so no kids have resulted from them. While he is curious to know what having a dragon mate would be like, nothing has resulted from it. Imitator has no kids because he is a wanted felon who could destroy Cier with his mimicking power, ,and as such its quite obvious why noone wants to hang with him. He isnt allowed outside the clan walls, and sometimes not even allowed outside the special prison cell made by Team Dojo in the tunnels, so he hasnt courted any dragons. Also he looks loke The Shade, sp thats another reason. Micwizard has never had a mate pf any kind, and he does not want to seek one out. [s]ace rep hc pog[/s]

She felt as if she had been pummeled from top to bottom, but really it was her head that felt the worst. What was the last thing she remembered? She’d recovered from her embarrassment earlier and had a nice chat with [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/forums/qnc/3218251/13#post_53802606]Chess[/url], then learned she’d won the round! Oh, that was exciting news! She’d been thrilled! She remembered seeing the new challenge presented and had been looking forward to having some fun with all the colorful ingredients, and then, and then… it all just faded to black! She felt confused. It was clear that hours had passed. In fact, she was so ravenous it felt like it had been days since she’s eaten! She rummaged in her pouches and found a large knob of hard cheese to gnaw on. While she still felt as if she’d been the victim of some sort of attack, she began to feel a bit more herself as she temporarily soothed her hunger. She looked herself over. Nothing was missing. She bore no visible signs of physical injury. But clearly something strange was going on. She finished her snack, and took stock of her situation, which was … under her prep table? Unggghh. She gingerly slithered to her feet, poking her head out, and was stunned to find the place emptying out! And the ingredients still on her table… were [i]not[/i] a pretty sight. “There you are!” It was [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/83149658]Olearopaeusth[/url], who had come for her first Jamboree, and had been particularly interested in the Mistral Meals event. “When you didn’t submit your dish for judging I knew something was wrong! Where have you been?” Apophalaulath stared at her in dismay and began to splutter. “What? I didn’t .. you mean … [i]oh nooooo![/i]” She’d been doing so well, and missed her final chance?! She could have won, she just knew it! “I don’t [u]know[/u] what happened!” she cried, and spilled her tale, such as she recalled. “Maybe there’s something wrong with me!” But Olearopaeusth was shaking her head. “You poor thing! I’m so sorry you didn’t get to finish your challenge, but it isn’t just you! There have been reports from all over Sornieth of dragons experiencing an abrupt psychic attack around the same time as you. No one knows why some felt it more keenly, where others didn’t even notice. I was uncomfortable myself, but I just felt slow and foggy, not incapacitated, maybe because I am used to those kinds of energies and have experience dealing with them. You are clearly of a more sensitive nature than typical for your breed, and the timing was unfortunate. You’ll be fine! You really did a great job here, and you should be proud!” Apophalaulath sighed doubtfully, clearly unhappy. “Listen, if you want, we can still check in at the medical tent for an assessment. I expect they will have seen related cases, with so many folks around in one place. And we’ll go right past where they are still doling out leftovers that some of the contestants left behind. I think you need some food!” That perked Apophalaulath up, and she nodded. Cheese was wonderful, but even she knew how important it was to get variety in your diet. And she did feel half starved! She wondered what culinary tidbits remained. Maybe she could take home some inspiration, if nothing else. *** @JinxMoonstone Too late for the competition, but the situation lent itself to a bit more RP regardless! @Dessy Congratulations to Nobori! Sounds like it would have been a tough one to beat anyway! @Eialyne Win some, lose some. Rats. But that's how it goes.
