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!
OOC: The Dark Elemental crawled through the tunnels, enjoying the songs sung by the nearby Chiroptians. They clung to the nearby walls, communicating through melodies. Their soft, silky, silvery glow helped Akhil relax.
A couple of Marintacea swam by, black shadowy shapes of dolphins that he'd seen during his visits to the ocean lands. He admired their gracefulness and majesty, and recreated them from darkness. It was a rare sight, but they weren't afraid of their creator like they were of others.
Suddenly, the Marintacea darted away like fish from a disturbance from the surface of a lake. The Chiroptians clinging to the walls stopped their song, and the whole corridor seemed to be waiting with bated breath. Akhil's heart leap, but not out of joy; he had felt the vibration too. The walls shook slightly, and the stalagmites on the ceiling quivered a little, and some dust fell off, landing in the silver bat-canaries' fur.
The Creation stirred again, its rumbles causing another tremor to ripple through Dragonsdeep. It had not been this active for many centuries. Akhil wished it would stay like that.
When it moved yet a third time, Akhil grew frustrated. He quickly found an entrance, and, spreading his wings, soared out into the light.
At first, he squinted, blinded momentarily by the brightness.
His rider, Titanius, sent him a telepathic message. Where are you going?
I need some time alone, he told the elf gently, and Titanius fell silent in acknowledgement.
Akhil flew aimlessly in solitude for some time, not knowing where he was. Looking down, he discovered that the ground was littered with barren landscape. There were a couple of volcanoes poking out from a cluster of forest vegetation.
The fire territory. He hadn't been here for a long time. This was Izett's domain, but out of all the Elementals, she was the one he didn't know much about. He knew who she was, and perhaps they'd been friends a while ago; maybe centuries, or millennia.
Impulsively, Akhil spiraled down to the ground. He found himself desiring company, anyone's company, and he was starting to regret not bringing Titanius along.
Izett hadn't been very involved with the incidents involved dragonsdeep. More over she was irritated that now the shadow tunnels ran all throughout her own land. It made it harder to protect, harder to patrol, if it weren't for her own massive size she probably could have complained in a more.... flashy way. The serpent crawled across the ground, her scales pummeling anything in her path. She would have to search for a new rider as well it seemed, a deep hiss emitting from her throat. Izett like most days, was not in the best of moods.
That was when her tongue flicked out to catch the scent of someone. Not just any someone, another elemental. She was used to dealing with creations of the other dragons trying to trespass on her rather pure territory. Yet the shadow dragon himself was presenting himself to her, might as well see what it was about and what he really wanted. Her curiosity was getting the better of her these days. As she approached with speed stopping not far from him raising her body from the ground with a flick of her tongue.
"Akhil, ss-urprisse, to ssee you." She greeted, a sly grin on her face as the draconian tongue left her maw. Common language, she hated it when she had to learn so many. Humans and elves were complicated creatures indeed. She surely wished the world had one language. Alas as time went by, that was not the case.
OOC: He had picked up on her presence before she'd made herself seen. All Elementals had that unconscious ability to sense each other nearby.
"Akhil, ss-urprisse, to ssee you," Izett said, and he turned around to face her.
He hadn't seen her in person in centuries. There had been no reason to, and even when he passed through the volcanic lands she did not take any steps to greet him, and vice versa. Now, the conflict of the Creation of Many were bringing them all together again. Akhil couldn't seen something good coming out of it so far. He could visit anyone any time he wanted to.
For a moment he paused, glancing her up and down. She was not a looker, nothing like Aduatine or even Ysera; the scales on her body were disproportionate and asymmetrical. There were four glowing eyes on top of her head. Her body was worm-like, and her teeth added to her physically sinister quality. Akhil took a step back; he could literally feel the heat coming off of her. He was well aware that she kept a small sphere of hotness around her body.
The land of Fire was one of the territories that he despised, not because of the ruler (unlike why he hated the Earth territory), but because of the surroundings. Even Dragonsdeep was a thousand times more beautiful that the bare lands that Izett roamed. But, he mused, I suppose that everyone has their preferences.
"It's nice to see you too, Izett," he answered politely, finding his voice again. "I er... just came to get out of my own lands. Have you heard that the Creation is stirring again? The destruction of Dragonsdeep is inevitable. The home of my Creations, and my own, will once again be destroyed," Akhil said bitterly. Why did I say that? He wondered, bewildered at himself. He did not want sympathy from Izett, if she gave it. Akhil hated sympathy; it was degrading, and it made him feel bad about the situation. Suddenly, he wished he hadn't said anything.
It seemed Akhil was troubled, so this was where he would stand. It amused Izett in a slight bit, but she couldn't imagine losing her own home... let alone twice. It was bad enough that the Dark elementals beautiful forest had been torn into the ground - pulled underneath to the depths. Where their creations and others now lay - disturbing her to the fullest when she went out to survey the area. It was irritating, and made it vexing to shoo them off whenever they came unannounced or unwelcome. As her eyes narrowed - she tried to think of something. Top eyes blinking before she looked about.
"Care to help me finisssh my patrol?" she hissed out as she looked around. If he wanted company than the prude woman was here to give it. Sure she was a bit bigger then him. However there was a couple things she never let on. Her love for both their children, she wouldn't even delve deeper into how she felt with Akhil. For a long time she pushed him away, she enjoyed his company regardless. As the lizard coldly stared at him.

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.

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
