Sons & Daughters
Criss, son of the Water and Fire Elementals, is an angry and conflicted young dragon with a buried heart of gold. While many dragons are most at home in the sea or the sky, Criss prefers to keep his feet firmly planted on the ground, thank you so very much. But if he could only embrace his Water heritage, he would find that he can breathe underwater just as well as he can breathe air!
The air territory was something he didn't tread across often, Karalis was a bit scared of interacting with others not of his element. The dragon was harboring a new rider, which meant not only watching out for the rider but his own well being. While a curious little spike, as Adu's son maybe better should be expected of the boy. He was fairly young by their terms, only fifty in age, while his rider was twenty one and barely could understand english. Though, Arcadius seemed to like him enough, and his mother liked him because Arcadius was a elf who had been raised in the human world for some unknown reason they seemed to want to find out. The first task was teaching the elf dragon language since right now it was difficult to communicate when the only human language Karalis did know was english and he didn't speak that well.
He flew through the air easily with Arcadius snuggled deep into his fluffy head. His stretched out red wings with black feathered tips. Perhaps he would be mistaken as a air creation, though he doubted that. Elementals never forgot their creations. Karalis was just nervous, the fact that maybe he didn't belong here irked him. Though he had never really fit in, anxiety in a dragon was probably unheard of but Karalis was full of it. Even in his youth as he finally landed on one of the islands. Looking around his blue eyes scanned the area, Arcadius was probably fast asleep right now since he wasn't rustling to get off of his dragons back.
The wind grabbed at Haikal’s hair and clothes as if trying to hinder him and Astraeus as they sped through the sky. The Elemental’s fur whipped in his face as he crouched low over the dragon’s neck. His clothes would have been doing the same if he hadn’t have chosen to wear a tighter shirt and pair of pants specifically for this purpose. Loose clothing cause more wind resistance after all.
The ground far below was nothing more than a blur with larger specks that pointed out where the islands floated lazily and the massive stone columns stood guard. Faster and faster, the duo raced on. Haikal whooped, but it was torn from his lips and quickly lost far behind them. At his rider’s joyful sound, Astraeus tuck his wings to his side and dived. Down and down they went, picking up even more speed that seemed to be not possible. Astraeus snapped his wings back open before they hit the ground and zoomed past an island before he headed deeper into his territory and the maze of the columns.
The Elemental dodged and darted around, under, and over columns and islands, skimming past within a hair’s breadth of them. If Haikal wasn’t caught up in the excitement and the adrenaline pumping through his veins he might have worried about how close they were getting to the solid objects. Besides, he trusted Astraeus far more than any other dragon when doing these aerial maneuvers. No one could compare to the Elemental’s speed and grace when flying.
At last Astraeus slowed down and Haikal peeled himself away from the dragon’s neck. He was grinning; his heart was still pumping and he was exhilarated. But then something caught the young man’s eye. There was a dragon below them on one of the many islands. Haikal pulled gently on the Elemental’s fur but Astraeus was already heading toward the red and black dragon.
As they drew nearer Haikal realized that there was someone on this unknown dragon’s back. He knew it wasn’t one of the Elemental’s, so it had to be one of their children if it had a rider. Astraeus landed gently and smiled at the dragon. “Hello!” he greeted them happily. “How are you today?”
Karalis had to step back for a moment when he saw the Air elemental. In awe of him entirely, he hadn't always met the other elementals. Just his mother and father and he was closer to his mother than he was his father. His horns ached slightly as he grinned slightly, Arcadius stirring on his back sitting himself up at the small man blinked his bright eyes at the two of them. He waved a little at the dragon and the human. The first time he had seen another human looking being since he arrived here on this island. From to his understanding he was Karalis' rider and he tried his best to communicate with him with his lack of language knowledge in many area's. "Eínai o̱raío na vlépeis kápoion o opoíos den eínai énas drákos" (It's nice to see someone who isn't a dragon)" Arcadius would speak in his mother tongue of greek. Well what he had thought to be his mother tongue, after all he was an elf and had only recently discovered this after shifting into his cat form. Karalis grinned a bit at the two of them.
"We're doing fine, honestly I'm sorry if I'm not supposed to be here, my rider Arcadius is new so I've been showing him around. My name is Arcadius I'm the son of the Dark and Time elementals." he would puff his chest out with pride as Arcadius shifted off his back. Not entirely knowing what the dragons were saying in their own tongues quiet just yet. It was hard enough communicating in english to the red and black creature anyway. "Pleasure, to meet you" Arcadius accent hit hard against his tongue as he leaned into Karalis with a single hand. The dragon's wing came to outstretch like a large umbrella for him. Probably Karalis was so over protective because this was his first rider let alone having one at his age. He was practically a hatchling by elemental terms.
Haikal peered at the pair, curiosity shining in his eyes. The other man waved at him and Air, and Haikal waved back, a smile lifting his lips. The man spoke and Haikal gave him a puzzled look. That was a language he didn’t know. Where was he from? His eyes went to Astraeus as the dragon gave a small laugh.
Air smiled at the other dragon’s rider and replied in the man’s mother tongue, “I’m sure it is, little one.” He could feel Haikal giving him a strange look and Astraeus turned his head so he could see his rider. “When you’re as old as me, Haikal, you pick up many different languages.” He turned back to the red and black dragon in front of him. “Good, good.” Astraeus smiled at him. “There is no reason to be sorry, any and all are welcome here on my lands. It is always nice to run into someone new.” He gave a small dip of his head as he felt Haikal slid off his back.
The man strode forward to stand at Air’s shoulder and smiled. It was kind of hard to understand the other man, but Haikal managed to decipher his words. He replied, “It’s a pleasure to meet you both. I’m Haikal.”
Samantha: And Paradox was amazing Dae! I enjoyed writing Adutaine opposite them. =)

Samantha: I get that Blazeh, no worries. <3 The site is pretty dead, it was just me and 27th and we couldn't keep it going on our own.
Apr 23, 2018 12:00:45 GMT
DaeSiggil: Oops, I know I haven't often helped by disappearing as I did. But still thinking about this place! <3

Verridith: Hey hon, love you guys but haven't seen anything happen since 2017 ;A; hope all are well! But have to remove you from BTACD's sister sites. I'm sorry! </3 </3 </3

Samantha: Exactly! It can be tricky, back home most of my friends are just from school, university or work. xD And it was lovely. They were all so lovely, the ones I was with spent the whole time talking about history, it was fun and edumacational.
Sept 30, 2017 10:02:29 GMT
27th: Wow! You got to have dinner with the authors? Making new friends is always nice. I know that struggle as I don't socialize like my peers.
Sept 12, 2017 18:00:11 GMT
Samantha: that great at doing haha (I don't like going out to parties and stuff, which seems to be the main way people my age socialise.)
Sept 11, 2017 23:11:00 GMT
Samantha: -looks at timestamp on last reply- Eeeek, apologies for the delay! But yeah it was AMAZING. My favourite author signed my favourite book, and we even had dinner with the authors one of the nights. Plus, I made some new friends, which I don't tend to be
Sept 11, 2017 23:10:37 GMT
27th: That sounds very cool! I would have loved going to something like that.
Aug 20, 2017 21:03:22 GMT
Samantha: It just means 'science fiction and fantasy.' So it was a conference for authors of these things, and scholars who study them!
Aug 19, 2017 21:10:27 GMT
27th: Glad you had a good time in Sweden! What is SFF?
Aug 11, 2017 16:08:48 GMT
Samantha: Sorry for the disappearance. I was in Sweden for an SFF conference- it was pretty cool!
Aug 11, 2017 10:48:27 GMT
Samantha: It's sad, yeah. We need more members to have more staff, we need more staff to keep the place active, and we need to have the place active to get more members. Sort of a vicious cycle. =P

Samantha: The problem is that the main person who likes to run contests, Riv, also has a tendency to disappear. xD And I don't have the time and the energy to run this place proper on my own.
Jul 31, 2017 16:45:38 GMT
27th: Yes, it is a lot of work. Though, I agree it could be worth the effort. As far as contests go, we've tried them here at DotE before. I don't know how well any of them worked but we it couldn't hurt to try.
Jul 30, 2017 5:53:42 GMT
R: Could try a contest?
Jul 29, 2017 4:40:04 GMT
shadow: Well. Yea. That also is a lot of work. It would be worth it though
Jul 28, 2017 4:12:51 GMT
27th: Well, recruitment would be key to that. Contacting the members we already have to try and get them to participate here would also be part of that.
Jul 26, 2017 15:52:29 GMT
shadow: I wonder what would happen if we tried to make it alive again
