Scales of Fayt: Chapter OneScales of Fayt:Chapter One:I groaned, another weekend had come and gone, and tomorrow was back to work. They never seemed long enough, the weekends. I scratched absently at a dry, scaly patch on the back of my neck. I liked my job well enough I supposed, it paid well and the guys that I worked with were as big of smart-asses as I was, it made the days a lot easier. I yawned, it was getting late, and as much as I hated it, it was getting to the point that if I didn't head off to bed I would not function the following day to any great degree.I yawned again and scratched at my neck again, the spot was starting to piss me off, it had been bothering me for a few days, and no matter what I did it seemed to steadily disregard whatever I did to get it to not itch. I walked into my bathroom hoping that there was still a little lotion left in the bottle I had in there, I had been using a prodigious amount lately trying to get that patch t
Wings of a Dream: PrologueWings of a Dream:Prologue:I was at home, it had been a long day at work. I was relaxing in front of my computer, debating what to do next, go back to my reading or finish some of my drawings. I ended up doing the former. I had found some interesting stories online and I wanted to finish reading them before I had to get to bed. I spent the next several hours in a combination of reading and chatting with my friends online.I got off the computer way later than I had wanted, but wasn't tired enough to sleep quite yet, so I crawled into bed and picked up one of my favorite books: Eragon. I read for another hour or so, until I felt an odd sensation, I was exhausted, but it didn't make sense, I felt like I hadn't slept in days. I looked at my clock, it read 12:28AM.AW, HELL! I knew I was going to have a bad day at work tomorrow. I promptly turned off my light and rolled over. &
WoaD: Chapter OneWings of a Dream:Chapter One:I hung limply from this dragon's mouth as he flew, he was careful to not hurt me, I was surprised by how gentle he was. As we flew I relaxed and took in the scenery, I was in an enormous forest, one the likes of which I had never seen. I turned my attention to Gleadr, and looked him over. The most noticeable thing about him was that he was missing one of his forelegs. I wondered what that was all about, but my pondering was cut short when I saw our destination. It was a grand city, built right into the trees! I had never seen such a thing.We landed in front of what I assumed was the palace, and he put me down. A man stooped down beside me.Well what do we have here? He said.He went to pick me up, but I backed away and bared my teeth, there was enough weird things happening to me today, I didn't need someone that I didn't know hauling me around.Easy
WoaD: Chapter FiveWings of a Dream:Chapter Five:As I flew the air brushed against my fresh injuries roughly, and made me wince. I needed to be more careful the next time I got in to a fight. I flew low to the treetops, to avoid being spotted by travelers. I did not want to have word of another dragon floating around the Empire. I found a well, worn road after about an hour of flight and landed.I really hope no-one has spotted me.I hurried into the forest, tucking my wings tight to my side and sought cover from the road. I reached out with my mind to see if anyone was around and found nothing. I ventured cautiously alongside the road, keeping my senses sharp for anyone nearby. I traveled by foot for several hours, until it had started to grow dark. I saw a small town in the distance, illuminated by many torches.Perhaps I'll be able to find something out there.I followed the road toward the city unt
WoaD: Chapter ElevenWings of a Dream:Chapter Eleven:I awoke early the next morning. The fire was dying down, just embers remained, Brom was sound asleep next to the fire, and Eragon was curled up under Saphira's wing. I smiled inwardly at the sight, they were a good match-up. I slowly stood and stretched, yawning loudly. I shook the sleep from myself and looked around.Saphira stirred a little and opened her eyes. You should have stayed awake just a little longer, you missed all the fun.I settled back down and looked over, What do you mean, 'fun'?She just started laughing, You'll see.Eragon groaned in his sleep and rolled over.I chuckled, and looked at Brom, who was rousing from the depths of sleep.Sleep well, old one?Well, enough, though I suppose that it will be one of the last times that we can camp out worry free like that.Right, so what did I miss last night?Brom started laughing, which in
WoaD: chapter FifteenWings of a Dream:Chapter 15:Dawn came and I awoke.Morning already?I got up and stretched, warming up for a long day in the air. I shook sleep from my limbs, it would still be a while before Eragon and Brom reached Saphira and I, but I was ready to go, I had been waiting around for a little longer than was to my liking and was getting antsy.I paced the clearing and linked up with Brom.You guys ready to go yet?I thought that you were going to sleep in?Can't. I'm anxious to get going,I've been bored out here.We're just about ready to leave, I feel a little bad though, Jeod's having some problems here, and we don't have the luxury of stopping longer to help him.Perhaps later... We need to get moving though, if he's Varden then he'll understand.True, but he's an old friend.I've got a feeling he'll be just fine.I turned my attention to Saphira, who was waking up and stretching out.Sleep
WoaD: Chapter ThreeWings of a Dream:Chapter Three:I awoke early the next morning, due to the Elf moving around preparing for her day. My head shot up immediately in alarm. It took a second for me to shake off the fog of sleep and remember where I was. I looked myself over once again and sighed.Guess I'll be like this a while.She turned around and looked at me in mild surprise. I didn't realize that you were awake yet.I wasn't, I just can't sleep with others moving around me.My apologies, I did not mean to disturb you.No worries, I doubt that you were planning on having me over last night. I don't believe we were properly introduced last night, I'm Fayathon, and you are?My name is Moriana, pleased to meet you Fayathon. You said that you were an unbound dragon, is that correct?I sat up, stretched and looked at her. I did, why?Well the only green dragon
WoaD: Chapter EightWings of a Dream:Chapter Eight:The next morning I awoke to an odd sensation. Saphira had scooted closer in her sleep and was curled up next to me. I chuckled and stood up, carefully not to wake her up, and stretched.Brom, are you up?Obviously, I'm answering aren't I?What's with you?Eragon's been being a damned fool, he's up already, and trying to get around.Your point being?He's going to mess up his legs worse! That will delay us! Have you forgotten that we need to leave as soon as possible, and that only works after that fool boy has healed!?I know that, but what are you going to do, tie him down? That would draw unwanted attention.I could feel his frustration, and shared it with him. I was not in the mood to tangle with the Ra'zac again, as I was still really sore from our last encounter.I've got an idea as that may calm him down, leave him be for a bit.
WoaD: Chapter TenWings of a Dream:Chapter Ten:There was something nagging at me.Brom, do we even have the supplies to get to Yazuac in one shot?He didn't answer immediately, instead he dug around in his packs. I could see the frustration in his actions.No, I didn't grab one of my packs, we'll have to make a side stop.Well, isn't Therinsford around here close? It'd also be a good place to look up info as to the lair of the Ra'zac, I've got my score to settle with them, and I'm sure that Eragon wants blood.Brom nodded, I bet, he was pretty upset about his home and his family. It's a good thing that his cousin was out of town.At least he has family left, and Saphira.Brom and Eragon continued on beneath Saphira and I, I supposed that Brom was passing some information as to dragons or the Riders.--------------------------------------------------------I flew silently for a while, letting myself get caught in flying. I d
Spryo's Fear Pt.3The two dragons set off to Avalar."Do you remember the way?" Cynder asked as they were flying."Yeah. Uh...it's this way." Spyro turned off. Cynder looked ahead."I don't think this is the way to Avalar. For starters it's the way to the Enchanted Forest." Cynder said flatly."I...knew that." Spyro said quickly. "You lead." Spyro turned away from the Enchanted Forest. Cynder rolled her eyes and set off in the direction of Avalar."Look! It's Lumorus!" Spyro pointed to a white and yellow figure down below."So it is! We must be in Avalar now. Oh look! The cheetah village! We are in Avalar!" Cynder smiled, and swooped down to join Lumorus. As the two dragons landed, Spyro opened his mouth to say something, but Lumorus spoke first."Spyro. Cynder. I sense your presence. What brings you here?" she said, not making eye contact, as she was blind (duh)."We need your help." Spyro said, stepping forward."What with?" Lumorus asked."The spirit of Malefor." Cynder said, also stepping forward. "
