Of Minds and Dragons [Private Rihzome]

Post by Ja'nua on Thu Jun 22, 2017 7:09 pm

Sweet fairies peck at your cheeks

As you sing a song so sweet

The water that drips from your lips

Is such a pleasant treat

But watch the water turn to mud

As the river runs with poison

And the sweet song from your lips

Turns vile from lies you bathe in


Quill placed against his temple, Ja'nua would think. This was probably his third rewrite of the poem today. He was getting closer, certainly, but there was still something he wasn't happy with. Perhaps it was the awkwardness in flow? He couldn't quite put his tail on it, but all he knew was that something was off, and he couldn't for the life of him, figure out what. And it was this reason that was driving him crazy.

Sighing, the wyrm would place his quill down, looking out his window. Perhaps he just needed a breath of fresh air. He hadn't been outside in forever, and some clear sky and savanna winds would do him some good, he thought to himself. Lifting himself up, the wyrm would pick up his poem, and put it away somewhere where the wind wouldn't blow it away, and where he would remember to find it. Once it was tucked away, Ja'nua made his way outside.

The outside of his small castle was actually pretty nice. After all, he did have a mountain view. He slithered over to the edge of the cliffside, staring out over the rolling savanna, as it would turn to desert.

For a moment, the old wyrm would simply sit there, closing his eyes, letting the wind brush against his scaled. Then he would sigh, muttering something beneath his breath. Maybe he could go for a stroll. To clear his mind, and get new muse, perhaps. Nodding, the wyrm started on his way, slithering across the way that lead him down the plateau.

Sighing in mild annoyance, Rihzome carefully extracted the note-pad from his satchel, soaked and swollen with the rains from the Tempest Ring. The clasp that held it closed had broken at some point, and everything inside had been soaked thoroughly… The greatest downside of a water-proof lining, that being if water got in, it wouldn't leak out. Instead, it had just sat there while he had made his way, and left everything in a small pool at the bottom. Well. There went any plan of doing some recording or sketching…

Pressing his wings to his sides, as he continued to walk, in a dour mood, he glanced around. His plan, originally, had been to simply just wander around. Maybe sketch a few of the scorpions or lizards that inhabited the deserts just a few kilometres away… but that plan was dashed, and he would rather spend a while outside before going back to the palace. Spreading his wings, his mind turning to how cool he was, he threw himself upwards, aiming to put some distance between the storm and himself first before he decided what else to do. Thankfully, his food was in an… edible condition, and he hadn't been carrying his journal or proper sketchbook, which would have been a catastrophe.

Gazing around in thought, he paused, his wings beating in place, as he caught sight of a familiar form. A small smile appeared on his maw, as he floated down a few feet. Yes… it was the wyrm, Ja'nua. Another scholar, as if anything else existed at this point in the Stormcallers, and rather reclusive, from what he understood, and an avid reader and writer. He had meant to make some time to speak to him, but with Imperia's rather… extended leave, it had fallen upon him, as usual, to take care of the Twilight Palace and it's running… although, it wasn't much more than he usually did, truth be told.

Spiralling downwards faster now, he let out a gentle screech of greeting and to ensure Ja'nua knew he was there. It took a good minute or so more for him to come closer, and with grace unusual of his size, he gently landed behind and next to the wyrm. "Ja'nua… Greetings." He told him with a smile and a small inclination of his head, his status, after all, still technically a scholar, just as high a ranking as him. "It seems providence is on my side this day… I've been meaning to seek you and speak to you." he informed him, before glancing around. "Although, if you were heading out somewhere, I'd be content to wait until you are done."

It was an unusually nice day today. Lately, there had been an onslaught of weird storm patterns effecting both the coast and the mainland. But most of these didn't concern Ja'nua. He had been around long enough to get through a turbulent collection of storms, and abnormalities didn't really bother him much. Rather, it was abnormalities that made life worth living. Nature was always a tempting mistress, and always knew when to add in new surprises, so as not to make life to repetitive. For without the unknown, how would you truly come to enjoy life to its' fullest opportunity? This was Ja'nua's logic behind the whole situation.

There wasn't much left in this world that Ja'nua found interesting, though he only wished he could visit the lands of Layrian and Shveki. After all, as a wyrm, Ja'nua couldn't fly, and there were no other modes of transportation to get across that far of a distance. Some draconiforms had invented mediocre boats, but he himself had never actually been on one. Sure, he could try digging beneath the ocean, but the pressure would likely kill him. Not to mention how hot or cold it would no doubt get once he was down there. And what would he eat? But alas, perhaps one day, he would be able to defy his physical limitations and get to the other continents, and be able to explore their wonders and beauty.

Ja'nua would continue on his way, slow moving and calculating, as he crossed the sands. He passed several lizards on his way down, and even a few meerkats, but wasn't really hungry enough to go after them. He mostly wanted to go for a stroll, try to get some inspiration for his next piece of work. And what better place could provide inspiration than the vast savanna. Once he had made his way down from the plateau, he glanced back up, looking over at his house. He had been quite lucky, picking such a spot to call home.

Nodding his head, he continued his slither. There wasn't much that could harm a dragon. They were apex predators after all. So it was much more relaxing for a wyrm to go for a stroll than, say, an ibex. As he slithered, the beating of wings began to catch his attention. He glanced up, spotting the dragon who he had once seen at the party, several weeks, maybe even a couple months, before. Rihzome, was his name?

He listened to what Rihzome would say, then shook his head, a smile on his face, "Alas, I am in no hurry. 'Twas simply taking a stroll. Why do you desire my company?" he asked, lifting his head to look at Rihzome with curiosity.
