nevermind that,  defend yourself

@draqriys       i could be.   [ this was becoming tiresome for the she-wolf.   after a minute of poking and her sword being moved out of his way, she gave up.  it instead finds solace within the pavement beneath them, her weight being leaned against it, held up with her arm    ]    i’d make a fearsome enemy

@canimort       well     .. no,   i’m rather brutal when it comes to combat.   [  glancing down at her blade,   he then felt a cooler sensation along the warm skin of his stomach,   resulting in him clearing his throat before ultimately stepping back and shoving her sword aside and away from his frame,   ]    but you’re not exactly the enemy,   now are you?

you’re meant to strike at me.    [ her eye roll was accompanied with a sense of humor. the tip of her blade had nudged once, then twice against the  the flesh of his stomach beneath his fabrics   ]    is this how you’re going to be when a threat comes on the morrow?  idle and lazy?     @draqriys

@draqriys         [ he’s sitting with his chin propped up in his palm, legs dangling as he was still to short for his feet to fully touch the ground.  scuffed sneakers and laces untied.  his plum shade hues never left the dragon egg in question, how the bright light from the sun made it shimmer gold ]   do you believe golden dragons are real?    [ the question was spoken aloud, despite it being his internal wondering.  matteo’s taunts were still in the back of his head, especially since his egg was the first to hatch amongst the first years while his was hardly even responding to his brain signals ]

@kingsarc       by the looks of it?    should be any day now     .. you see the shell?    it’s beginning to thin and stretch because he    — or she,   is almost ready to break free

@draqriys    I doubt he’ll out eat a starving wolf.  jon would eat ten plates if he could.  full of meat and nothing else like the carnivore he is.   (un)like his father and grandfather, however i would be there to watch the amount.   you yourself have a belly growing

@canimort       you know i will,    i have a knack for arguing with the old brutes     .. it’s quite fun if i do say so myself    [  he knew better than to pay any mind to her sly comment,   for it was only to get him riled up.   his only response was a subtle scoff which was accompanied by an eye roll  ]   be warned      .. that boy sure knows how to stuff his gullet,   much like his father and grandfather

@draqriys       good.  meanwhile, my favorite aegon and i will be racing the winds and stuffing our faces.    perhaps even advance his skill in archery while you wither away among old men and  mean mesyrs [ then she steps forward, smoothing down his furs, picking out small pieces of leaves that had fell she assumed ]   i’m sure you’ll have lots of fun

it’s nothing— just had too much fun with morghul, is all

@unfyred      dragons are tricky like that,   especially ours.    from what i know,   they’re not fans of saddles for they feel restrained and weighted down    .. hence why my father taught his to ride saddle less,   much like i taught you.   doesn’t mean it hurts any less     ..but you grow accustomed to it over time

@draqriys      i’ll try me best [ he goes to make a shrug yet decided against when the ache in his shoulder increased from the movement ]    she could at least let me put a saddle on her, though..    my ass hurts

@unfyred      i’m the last one to judge     .. believe me,    i was doing worse when i was about your age.    just    .. whatever you do,   keep it somewhat discreet,    because everything you do comes back to me in one way or another

@draqriys        [ he knew it was coming, yet still his mouth hung agape,  making out a gasp, it was cold.  it was wet — and he wanted to go inside, yet he wasn’t going to back down.   with his lip caught between his teeth the younger scooped up a handful of snow, never mind making it into a perfect circle. he had three it at his brother, making sure it struck him..  then— he made a ran for it.   screaming.     ]

@reapsowed      mm,   i’m sure you did.    [  he wasn’t an idiot.   while jace was known for being a reckless adolescent,   he also happened to be scared of his eldest brother and would rather die than vex him in any manner.    with a snowball in hand,   he shaped it into a perfect sphere as he glanced over at the younger ones running around along the snow and throwing snowballs at one another,    which sparked an idea in him.   without even glancing over at his younger brother,   his arm had already moved to wind up and throw the snowball he crafted right into his face     .. looking around right after as if to feign utter shock,   ]      wh    —who was that?    it had to have been jace,   you know him

@draqriys      absolutely.   [ it wasn’t jace at all.  not that he would say so.  he crossed his arms too tightly and made lie of a nod, a shrug ]      i told him not to .

i am well happy up in this tree, thank you

@youngfyre       you’re far from an idiot,   vaemerys     .. in fact,   you’re rather bright and intuitive for someone your age.   [  he can’t say he truly understands the frustration of trying to claim a dragon,   much like his father he had been gifted with being one with them     .. but he had seen it from everyone else,   and has heard stories from their elder family members as well  ]    i’m sure father gave you the spiel and i know i’m most likely the last person you want to hear it from as well     .. but you are young,   and so is she.   while you’re learning to grasp the ropes of being a rider,   she’s learning to be accustomed as a dragon.    i understand it’s aggravating,   but you need to give yourself some time and not be as hard on yourself,    because dragons can sense more than you know      —including the little ones,   she can sense your frustration and that’s why she’s hesitant,    but the more you practice and remain open minded     .. the sooner it will come to you,    promise

@draqriys     she’s being an idiot.  [ he toys with the stick until a piece is broken off, then he tosses it aside, watching it twiddle down until it struck the snow beneath them both.    his eyes fell to the sleeping dragon snugged in his lap.  he couldn’t be angry at her,         not when she looked like this    ]            ..  like me.

@youngfyre     [  he hadn’t spared another word,   instead he gains friction along the trunk of the tree and reaches up to grab a thick branch,   ultimately pulling himself up and seating himself along the open spot vaemerys had so graciously given him.   leaning forward some,   his hands wrap around the bark of the tree as his feet swung ever so slightly  ]    any luck with teaching vhagar commands yet?
