A tall shadowed figure poked her head in the door, looking around quietly, having watched the knight enter this place as she left the pre-wedding parties for Lord Asriel and Lady Findis. She had passed the dragon stables before she made it to the door and had stopped in wonder to watch the creatures for a few moments before moving on. Timidly, she slipped through the doorway and closed the door behind her, trying not to make a sound. She slowly slid her hood from her head, her grey green eyes adjusting to the light. Soft silver hair spilled down her shoulders, and elven ears poked through it slightly. She walked silently to where she heard some noise that sounded like voices, and quickly spotted the knight that she had seen before... the one named Tobeszijian. She stood in the doorway to the room and cleared her throat a little, speaking softly, but loud enough that she could get his attention.<BR><BR><i>Excuse me... M'lord? I just wanted to know more about your dragons... I have never seen their like. If you please, I am only curious...</i><BR><BR>She smiled a little and hoped he would tell her more about the wondorus creatures she had seen.

Tobeszijian rises from his chair when he spots the fine lady speaking to him. <BR><BR>"Of course, my lady, I will tell you as much as you want me to. Although, I will be speaking in general fantasy terms, instead of the roles they {Dragons} play in the Tolkien works."<BR>A-hem... "Dragons are mystical creatures deriving from many modern folk-tales. They are often described as beasts resembling lizards. Their are a variety of descriptions of dragons, but my favorite one claims them to be large wyrms, with wings and tales. They possess magical abilities, and can cast small spells. They are ferocious creatures that are truly fearsome in battles. My dragon, Alon D'Ar, prefers large ears of corn, but i don't know if that goes for the whole species or not..." <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR>[p.s.- hope that answers your question!] <BR>[p.p.s.- In the Tolkien works, dragons are supposedly 'evil' creatures. Although they can be used with evil intentions, I would rather be friends with mine. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>]

Thank your, Volcanus, for your kind words... They are appreciated. Oh, and why did you change your alliance to that of Dale?

Luna smiled and moved forward a little so she could see his face in the light, thinking on all this. She spoke again quietly:<BR><BR><i>Are they very hard to tame if they are so ferocious? And if a dragon is say, a fire dragon, may he only use spells associated with fire?</i><BR><BR>She stoped a moment and looked down, blushing.<BR><BR><i>I suppose I ask too many questions. But I do wish to know more about them... they have fascinated me for years, though I have never known any personally.</i><BR><BR>(OOC: yes, thank you, that did answer alot of my questions ^^... beware, though, I have many more where that came from. =P )

"Of course my membership is open, Volcanus. Just name a dragon and i will give you a rank. I would prefer though, if you did this in my messgae board thread, as i created this rp thread for more of a 'rp'ing experience... go figure!?<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>Tobeszijian turned to the lovely luna once again and appeared delighted to answer her questions.<BR><BR>"Well, in battle they are ferocious to their enemies. As surprising as it is, dragons have a conscience as well. They become very close to their masters, as a dog would to his owner. Therefor, when you become acquainted, it begins to listen to you and follow your instructions. As for their magic, I do not know very much, but i will say that they follow their elements- such as you said. I.E.- A fire dragon will cast only fire magic... but some have a variety of spells that include healing, status changes, and defensive spells. As i have said before, I hope this helps..."<BR><BR>Then Tobeszijian wandered over to the refreshment table and seemed delighted at the variety of food that had manifested itself there...<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0>

Luna smiled again and bowed softly, a few strands of silver falling into her face.<BR><BR><i>Thank you very much for the information, M'lord, it has helped me a great deal. But before I leave, I would like to have the pleasure of knowing your name. Then I will leave you alone, I promise.</i> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>She straightened again and on her lips still remained the smile; but she knew she was probably just interfereing with a very busy man, and was being nothing but a trouble to him for the moment.

Tobeszijian smiles broadly and emits a hearty laugh. <BR>"Nay, my lady, you are not interfering at all! I fear this 'busy man' is not as busy as he seems... At least not at the moment <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>. My name is Tobeszijian, and i am travelling the world in search of my destiny."

She stepped closer again, gaining a little confidence.<BR><BR><i>You are a mind reader as well as a knight, I see... I shall have to guard my thoughts well, I think. My name is Luna Rose and I hail from the fair forest of Lothlorien, M'lord Tobeszijian. I am a master falconer, bard and poet. I also teach archery and falconry to anyone who would like to learn as I go on my way. I guess I am a wanderer like you... I wander to find my true destiny. </i><BR><BR>Luna pused a moment and then looked back to him, her eyes inquisitive.<BR><BR><i>I do not suppose you could teach me how to ride one of your dragons like you and your friends do? I do not think I would be any good at it but I would like to try... in turn I can teach you anything you would like to know about archery or falconry.</i><BR><BR>She brushed the strands of silver out of her eyes and smiled, squinting slightly as the light from a window hit her squarley and brought her form out from among the shadows.

Tobeszijian gasped slightly as the slender and beautiful figure emerged from the shadows. Recovering from his shock, he regained his wits and began speaking; <BR><BR>"Of course i shall teach you how to ride dragons, my lady. It is not that hard, you see, for once they get to know you they do all the work for you......"<BR><BR>Tobeszijian's sauntered away with Luna in stride, as he excitedly explained to her how to ride a dragon. They paused for a second and Tobeszijian looked at her for a second quizzically...<BR>"What are you thinking now, Luna?"<BR><BR><BR>(Volcanus- Just tell me the name of your dragon and i will give you it... by the way, the sky-knights thread is in the message boards<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>)<BR>

Luna blinked and looked up at him. After a moment she blushed, and lowered her gaze again, answering him in a quiet voice.<BR><BR><i>Nothing, M'lord Tobeszijian. Maybe just the details of riding a dragon so I will not forget them. Possibly one or two other things, but they are not important for me to relay to you right now.. perhaps another time though.</i><BR><BR>She smiled to him, blushing still a little, having been slightly unnerved by the question. She hoped he was not reading her mind right now...

Tobeszijian nodded slowly. He appeared to be deep in thought, but quickly shook it off aand continued walking with Luna.<BR>"Well," he said, brandishing a smile, "where were we?"

Luna thought a moment and then turned to him again.<BR><BR><i>You were just telling me how to not fall off a dragon. One of the most important topics in dragon-riding I suspect. Please continue...</i><BR><BR>She smiled back to him and followed as he began walking again. They continued for a long while, Tobeszijian talking excitedly and Luna taking it all in and burning it into memory. They finally reached the stables and Luna poked her head in, smiling in wonder at the incredible creatures, almost afraid to step inside. Her voice was barely a whisper when she spoke again.<BR><BR><i>They are beautiful...</i><BR><BR>She stepped slowly to the stable of a huge black dragon, who leaned his head forward, looking at her, tilting his head to the side. She began to reach out her hand but then stepped back, looking to Tobeszijian.<BR><BR><i>Can I touch him? Will he snap at me if I try?</i>

OOC:<BR>Volcanus, the Sky-Knight's Guild is in the Alliances & Guilds forum. It should be on the first page, but if not, it will be on the second, I fancy. <BR><BR>~Luna Rose<BR><BR>ps- That is a good name for a dragon. What's his element(s)?

Tobeszijian observed as Luna stretched her fair hand towards Alon D'Ar. She moved with grace and elegance, of magnitude Tobeszijian had never seen. He was surprised when he saw her withdraw her hand, and look towards him quizzically. Upon hearing her words, Tobeszijian was quick to reply;<BR><BR>"Nay, My Lady, Alon D'Ar would never hurt anyone unless he considers them an enemy. As of now, he considers you his friend. That, he has told me."<BR><BR>In response to Tobeszijian's words, Alon D'Ar reached his long, slender neck towards Luna and paused in front of her hand, seemingly wanting to be touched by the fair maiden.

Luna smiled warmly to him, her eyes dancing slightly as she reached out again and stroked Alon D'Ar's muzzle softly.<BR><BR><i>You have not ceased to amaze me, M'lord Tobeszijian. Not only are you a dragon-rider and a mind reader, but you speak the dragon's language as well! You are a wonder. I am sure your wife must be very proud. </i><BR><BR>Her face changed slightly as she said the last words, almost to a look of regret. She masked it quickly and her eyes lit up with wonder again to continue petting the dragon. She spoke again, but this time, she talked to Alon D'Ar, in the only other language she knew; ancient elven.<BR><BR><i>I am glad you think of me as a friend, and not a snack. You are a very nice dragon... and you have an incredible master. You must be so happy to live here, to have a place to call home.. that is something I could never hope for.</i><BR><BR>She sighed a little and smiled ruefully, stretching up and placing a small, light kiss on the dragon's nose. She then turned back to Tobeszijian and walked to him.<BR><BR><i>Where to now?</i>

Out of the sky came a great white dragon carrying a dark haired maiden on its back. As the dragon landed in front of Tobeszijian and Lunarose, she dismounted. "Hail, Tobeszijian, Lunarose. I have come from my celebration to see the dragons of the Sky-Knights. I am a dragon priestess of the Dragon-Lovers, and am interested to see what breeds you have here. Behind me is Snowflame, the White Dragon of the species Narnim-Beleg."

Upon hearing remarks about wives, Tobeszijian faltered slightly and turned away. He began talking very slowly, putting emphasis on each word.<BR><BR>"Luna, I do not have a wife, nor have I ever had one. That is the only area where I feel truly vulnerable, for I am a warrior, not a lover or a romantic. I am still seeking my significant other, but i do not seem to be making very good progress... Anyways, I believe we should move on to the garden..."<BR><BR>Tobeszijian looked up in brief surprise when he noticed a dragon flying towards them. Alon D'Ar spread his wings to protect the duo, but Tobeszijian whispered something quietly to him, and it desisted its efforts.<BR><BR>"Welcome, Findis and Snowflame, to my Guild. Congratulations on your recent wedding, too. We have many breeds here, as chosen by my comrades. You have my leave to examine the stables and dragons as you wish, but you must first ask to see other members' dragons. Who knows? Maybe you shall find some of them around the castle. Or, I could take you on a guided tour when I am done with Luna... What would you prefer?"

Luna bowed to Tobeszijian and then to Lady Findis.<BR><BR><i>I will leave you be if you wish... Go and look at the other creatures as I had come to do myself. M'lord Tobeszijian is a wonderful guide.</i><BR><BR>She moved back beside Alon D'Ar, resting her hand on his neck and petting him softly.<BR><BR><i>I can just stay here with Alon D'Ar until you return...</i>

Tobeszijian turned sharply upon hearing those words.<BR><BR>"Findis, tell me when you would like a tour. For now, I shall stay with Luna."<BR><BR>Then, Tobeszijian turned to Luna.<BR><BR>"Luna, If we do go, I would enjoy it greatly if you would come with us. But until then, we shall stay here- that is, if you want to... For I myself know what it is like to be shoved aside for someone else; to be ignored and forgotten, and lonely beyond comprehension. That is why i would like you to stay with me, and keep me company. Would you do me that favour?"

Luna smiled warmly to him and bowed.<BR><BR><i>It would be my pleasure, M'lord Tobeszijian...</i><BR><BR>Her mind went off in a whirl. Perhaps she had a chance! Maybe she had not aimed to high... but one could never be sure. So, she stayed silent, only very happy to stay.
