Cyan's Lantessama Dragons
Stories were lost but here are stats pages!
Trix watched as she saw the candidates enter the sands. Oddly all worthy
that had been found were girls this time. Of course the mother of the
clutch, Kyrenath might have had a say in that. Like her rider she stayed
well away from long-lasting relationships, only finding pleasure in the
occasional fling now and again.
two fathers of the clutch were waiting patiently at the edge of the
hatching sands. They had been fetching food for the pregnant/guarding
dragoness and were now dismissed of their duties. Kyrenath had announced
her eggs were moving.
could feel the expectation as electricity in the air. She had at times
tried to count the eggs, but Kyrenath had kept them close to her, burying
several for days. She had counted as many as 15 and as little as 6.
shifted her attention to the candidates. The 8 girls stood in a oblong
form around the mother and her eggs, smiling at each other and crossing
fingers. Trix let her eyes pass each one, the eggs seemed to be in no
hurry to hatch.
Away from the shadows, also in the light of the lanterns stood Myrcka, a
girl who Sovyl had found wandering around in the high north of a
previously uncharted world. Trix got chills when she saw the girl, tall,
blond and blue-eyed in a mere cotton dress so close to autumn. Maybe the
pleasant warmth of Tri-Peak was getting to her after all.
One by one the eggs hatched and the candidates bonded. Until finally two
eggs remained, but only one candidate. Even Kyrenath know seemed to
scuttle around a bit worried. She looked at her eggs though she couldn't
change basic math just by wishing it. A soft fog flowed into the cavern.
Trix looked outside assuming the fog originated there. But outside the
view was clear. Trix looked back and suddenly a small shiver lifted the
fog. A girl -what else?- lay on the ground, her arms clutched around an

But the girl only had eye for the egg in her arms. The violently rocking
egg. She lifted the egg slightly from the ground. The bottom of the shell
gave in and a small dawn dragon fell through.

looking at it. She squinted and finally gasped as a speck of grey caught
her eye. A tail! The girl leapt forward and helped the last dragon, her

took her seat on one of the benches in the front middle section. She
looked around in the hatching cavern and smiled. With all the commotion of
the Halloween clutch gone it was good to see a regular mid day hatching
again. The two green dragonesses had announced that morning their eggs
would hatch a few hours in the future. Leisurely visitors had strolled in
over the morning, chatting and laughing.
this moment, just past noon the first eggs started to shift. A slow
pseudo-movement at first, but it was enough. The dragons flew to their
perches and started humming. Two proud father dragons stood at the
entrance of the cave to get a better view while their mates lay on the
sands with the best view of all. And so it should be.
all aspects this hatching seemed to be a normal one, but many knew it
wouldn't be. Many visitors had come just to see whether the glowing genes
could be inherited or if they would disappear. All things considered this
clutch wouldn't be the right one to decide that from, Duivelth had led his
catch into the Elsewhere. It was almost certain that there would be some
glowing dragonets in there.
watched as the candidates were led in, 7 there were for 7 eggs, 4 males
and 3 females.
The first Trix spotted was the partly crow-woman Kraia. It was hard not to
notice her with her black wings and feathered body. The next candidate she
saw entering the cave was Wes, a young earthling who had been found by
Maira outside a video arcade, whatever that was. Right behind him stepped
in a duo of earthling males. One of them trying to get rid of the other.
They had been the last to sign up for this clutch, and only at the last
minute. Dirk caught John by the arm, fondling it like it was a puppy or
something. Disgusted the other man pulled his arm free and started a
conversation with the crow woman which succeeded in making Dirk really
The remaining three entered, Jahkonu, proud and confident as this young
kin had always been. Khana, who had also seen her companion Mecate bond at
the Halloween clutch was carrying the smaller Nia, helping her cross the
hot sands a bit faster than she could on her own.
The candidates were now quiet, watching the eggs. Even Dirk had given up
chasing John for a few minutes, enthralled by what was going to happen.
Soft cracking echoed trough the caves and the dragons started singing
louder, their music reaching a climax.
The first of Thulessa's eggs split after that, revealing a dragon as green
as it's mother. the small hatchling flapped his wings and stepped
carefully out of his egg. When it stopped to sit and rest a while it got a
rather disturbed look from it's mother.

know my name, don't you?" the
foliage dragonet winked and then pushed his bond outside.
A larger egg cracked, and a glowing, dark red head appeared...at the
bottom of the egg! The egg shards fell away, and the upside down hatchling
screeched as he fell over onto his back.
Little help here?"
John ran over to the blood male and helped the hatchling to right
himself, grinning to himself as he did so.

eggs were hatching only 15 minutes ago. And indeed the eggs were rocking
fast and vigorous. In fact they were rocking harder than they should have.
looked out. The outside of the cavern was dark. Evening had fallen a
couple of hours ago and if the dark wasn't enough it was also raining. All
in all the cavern seemed to be the only real place in the world. It felt
like the world just ended outside.
candidates entered, 10 in all, and only three would most likely bond
today. Many of them seemed like they had rather passed for this clutch...
but some of them seemed keen enough, like the two flitters Stone and
Starwind that were already flying above the eggs, their companions sitting
on the benches cheering for them.

their eyes. There were the twins Sirila and Iralis, Nuramor and Nuara,

shook her head at that understatement and watched the candidates as the
first egg broke. A cloud of dust flew up and obscured the hatchling from
the eyes of the humans. However the dragons heard the thoughts of the
twins and crooned harder, encouraging the two males to step into the
light. Finally they did. The first was a dark sunset with black wings
covered with blue wisps and some small glints at the edges. The second,
also male was silver-black with more glints and specks of white. A third
egg hatched into a brilliant sunset-coloured dragon.
Now there was only one more egg laying on the sands. Flying above it where

the sands in opposite directions. They rolled out of the light into the
The candidates suddenly became a bit more excited. Two more dragons that
were ready to impress. They were shifting and whispering, as were the
people on the benches. Not one of the twin dragons seemed intent on
leaving their shadowy hideaway.
Finally the little white-gold flit called Starwind chattered loudly and a
small dragon walked out of the shadows. The dragoness walked slowly,
hesitatingly into the light.

Meanwhile strange sounds were coming from the other shadowy corner.
Suddenly the young depressed woman Sekally lunged from the shadows. She
was running away from something. The dragon?
Complete chaos broke out when a light brighter than anything else in the
cavern burst out of the shadows behind her. The candidates turned away,
sheltering their eyes from the sudden light.

I need you! And you need me."

you would just look into my eyes..."
But the dragoness wasn't that easily thwarted. The light faded for a
second but then she stood in front of Sekally, burning as brightly as
said in a voice that would allow no disobedience.
Sekally finally gave in and opened her eyes.
The light glowed even brighter, for a moment washing away all colours.

I feel ok."
The dragoness bowed her head and then made a strange gesture with her left
"Will you help me?"
Trix wasn't the only one who looked rather baffled when the last couple
left the sands. The way the young woman had acted, Trix had assumed that
she would have to sand several times before even a foliage would look at
her, caring as they were. But this, no-one had been expecting.
She looked outside and realised it had stopped raining. A soft light came
from the beach. So the world was still out there. Maybe the light had just
been drawn inward for Naderenya's hatching...
Trix came down from her bench and joined the party. It was best not to
think too long about such things. These thoughts led nowhere.
