A red-haired, green-eyed girl. Shauny's one of the
few Icelanders with a dark complexion. Not many people dare approach her
when she's in the winter villages, but during the summer, when she's with
her own family and community she's a bright, cheerful girl that enjoys
singing, cooking and exploring. She can be a bit of a tomboy, but lately she's becoming more and more
like a girl.
This year's Lantessama's
holiday cavern was decorated lavishly again. The inside of the smaller one
of the two hatching caverns in the middle mountain was plastered with ice.
Snow crackled below people's feet and their breath made little clouds in
the air. It didn't matter that a few winter season and a couple of
assembled winter-type dragons were grumbling and sending out bad karma
when the end result looked like this. It was snow!
Candidates and spectators filed in, as did the Laedrysses and a few other
Lantessaman officials. When everyone was seated Lucas signaled for the
lights to be dimmed and then the entire cave bathed in a faint icy blue
sheen. As the temperature dropped, the eggs in the center of the cavern,
buried in snow and ice, started to show signs of hatching.
One of the eggs crackled and shattered
into dust. Or ice. The hatchling that emerged from the snow was female and
her hide a rich indigo blue. She took her first steps on the snow, skidded
on a patch of ice and waited. Trying to keep her balance she carefully
placed her feet in front of her as slowly as she could. Absorbed by this,
the lapis lazuli feather dragon didn't notice that she was approaching the
candidates. Suddenly she bumped into Sha'uny, threatening to take both of
"Careful!" Sha'uny shouted.
Nervously the indigo dragoness replied: "I'm
not that stable yet... but I will. Would you mind waiting for me until
"I wouldn't mind even if it takes forever, Senua Göte!" the
young Iceland girl smiled back.
Sha'uny had grown from a young, precocious girl to a young, confident
woman. Having bonded a dragon, she'd gained the freedom she'd longed for
her entire life, even if that had meant she'd have to give up free time to
care for Senua when she'd been too small to be able to care for
But as soon as they'd been able, the two of them had flown away, exploring
the entirety of Syl'Neriss. The only place they hadn't visited was
IceLand. Still Sha'uny craved to walk on the snowy plains and through the
"We'll get there." Senua promised.
"I don't know." Sha'uny said.
"Go talk to that hunky young IceLander Koy. I've heard he might be
wanting to go to IceLand with some of the others."
Sha'uny had heard of the Lantessaman born iceLanders. They found belonging
with each other but Sha'uny felt a bit different from them and though she
was about the same age as Koy, she hadn't dared approach him. Maybe
sometime in the future the two of them might talk.... Maybe.
