"OW! Watch the Collar!"
"Sorry sn- er- sorry. I-I mean. Sorry l-lord Cane."
Cane looked at the Elven taylor, who had outfitted him with a set of Ebony gauntlets, torsal armor and shin boots. The taylor was now equiping him with a dark blue cape.
"I still don't get why I have to wear all this." Cane huffed angrily as the tailor buckled the cape to his armor with a brass chain.
"You are dining with me and my mother, and she wishes you to be dressed formally. as do I." Elenduil said, smirking at Cane's displeasure.
"You have been happy enough to talk to me when I was topless, why should this matter? And i thought you weren't a fan of elven customs!" Cane said, attempting to look round at her from the podium as the tailor began tightening all the straps on his armor. padding was fitted below the chestpiece and stretched down his abdomen, making it feel abnormally warm altogether on his body, and annoyingly stuffy.
-As I recall, she said she was unhappy with the rituals.-
"Shut it Daedrid!"
-I'm right though.-
"Thats's true. he is!" Elenduil chirped at him.
"How do I look?" Cane asked.
-Like an eejit.- Daedrid puffed from inside the dragonhold. He had grown significantly, and his wings were now taking on the form of the other dragons, but appearred slightly thin. horns were sprouting like buds in spring all over Daedrid's spine. Yet still, he lacked forearms. Cane had a hunch that the strange feel of Daedrid's ribs were to eventually grow into his arms. Only time however would tell.
"You look rather formiddable. A trait I know you harbor in yourself Cane of Riverhead."
Cane entered the dragonhold, to see queen Arya standing by the screen, which stood between her and the great snoring dragon Firnen behind. She was dressed as Cane had last seen her, in a simple green robe and the diadem on her crown.
"I thought Elenduil said this was-"
"Formal? Of course. I hope she is applying her armor to herself, as i shall shortly."
The queen stepped forward briskly.
"I see Daedrid is growing steadily."
"Less steadily than he should hope for." Cane said, relaying his dragon's words. "He says the shedding process is a mouthful. and he asks how the ah... to use his words rightly, he asks how the old gecko over there is doing?"
Arya looked at Daedrid with a whisp of a smile.
"He healed swiftly if you must know. but he wishes to avoid any more of your syliva getting on his nose."
"NOW! I should ask the two of you to leave. I require some time to change. fly for a while if you must."
Cane, without need of further demands, left promptly, with Daedrid following.
"Have you actually flown yet? with those wings I mean."
-Yes. It's quite exhilarating. fancy a swish?- Daedrid asked sweetly. Cane looked to him with his most confused expression yet.
"Fancy a swish?' What kind of question is that?"
-Just get on my back damnit!-
Cane mounted himself at Daedrid's shoulder blades, and held his arms around his neck, for they had no saddle and there were no reigns. Pressing his bat-like ear to Daedrid's neck, he could feel the deep breaths of his dragon.
Daedrid extended his wings, and the fibre between each finger seemed to expand and the moonlight seemed to shine right through them as though they were but whisps of clouds. With a mighty flap of the wings, daedrid dived towards the ground, then kicking off hard, and in a matter of seconds they were flying high above the ground.
With the wind rushing through his hair and the warmth of Daedrid's breaths flowing like rapid water, blowing back at him, cane felt himself submitting to throahs of adrenaline and extasy such that he had never felt before.
"HEY DAEDRID!" Cane shouted against the wind.
-What do you think?-
Cane was overwhelmed.
"THIS IS AWESOME!"
-I know, right?- Daedrid banked left accross a valley of highly grown trees. he spiralled his flaps to gain speed.
"Can you tell where you are going?" Cane said at the first opportunity when they simply resided to gliding around.
When his answer Came, he felt a sensation of dread and excitement shower over him.
-no. but where would the fun be if i could?-
out of nowhere, a dark rose-pink mass came bursting from the forests below.
"Daedrid, look out!" Cane screamed at the top of his lungs, for the creature was less than an inch from them, primed for collision.
Sorry this took so long people. I enjoyed drawing Daedrid in this shot, cuz' i got a view of the spine. Towards the end I kinda rushed it, but there is a reason behind that.
I'm heading back to Donegal today see, andb this time for a while longer. This will be my last post for ages, for that reason.
To everybody at NDA I wish a very pleasant summer holiday, and Puma', don't you dare give up. Your art is amazing and is improving swiftly, I want to see more of all of it when I get back!

I like the perspective you chose. It's cool to see how Daedrid has transformed some from his previous form.
Bye Wolven! We're gonna miss your art here and your stories! Have fun in Donegal!
