Secret Santa - Arsonicace "That's the last of the digitalis I need." Aisuno moved to place the small plant into his pouch, but stopped short. He stared hard once more at the charts given to him by an instructor at the academy to make absolutely certain that the plant he held in his hand was the same kind he'd been sent to gather. He knew well the dangers of confusing two similar-looking species of plants, especially ones meant to be consumed - what he didn't know was what any of the plants looked like. Checking what he found against the charts so frequently and intently was tedious and unpleasant, but necessary.
Aisuno renewed the enchantment on his cloak, strengthening the fabric's ability to ward off the cold air. He hated that they would send him out on a night like this - on Christmas eve, no less - but he figured that it was one of the last chances to gather herbs before it got deeper into winter and the cold really set in. So steeled against the cold, he sat down on the forest fl
GCA Christmas Writer Meme: Lyn*~THE CHOSEN VICTIM~*
Give us a name, and maybe a bit of knowledge of him/her. Make sure they know that this is... like a "test" of sorts, there's no backing out of it until they're done going through all of this. If you must, lock them in.
Name: Lyn Bryan
Personality: Lyn is kind, outgoing, and friendly. He always enjoys making new friends. His easygoing and upbeat attitude has often drawn people to him.
He doesn't like to see people getting into trouble or breaking rules, but he has been known to let small infractions slide.

Aside from those things, he tries his best to ensure that everyone around him is doing what they are supposed to, as well as trying to resolve disputes peacefully.

I Hate Dragons There was always some degree of difficulty involved in tracking down a flying creature - even something as massive as a dragon - when you didn't have the ability to fly yourself. By the time I realized I'd lost the ice dragon's trail, I had no idea where I was.
It was a little surprising. I've been a Dragonbuster for many years, so I've seen a pretty sizable portion of the world during my travels and hunts. At this point in my life, for me to look around and not recognize any of the landmarks was unusual. It was frustrating enough that I had nothing to guide me back to a familiar place, but the worst part was that the dragon had gotten away. It's been a long time since I last saw an ice dragon, a long time since I last had the opportunity to use one of them to replenish my magic. Not that I haven't killed my share of dragons over the past few days - just that with the way things are for Dragonbusters, I'm limited to only stealing the powe
Unusual People Taphram's hands were clenched tight under Keizen's chin. It was almost to the point where it was choking him - but Keizen couldn't get too upset at the boy. If his grip was any looser, he might very well fall onto the ground. Keizen didn't have a lot of physical strength, and it was hard to support all of Taphram's weight.
He heard Taphram inhale sharply behind him, and felt warmth spreading on his leg. Blood was starting to seep through the bandages on Taphram's leg again. Keizen hated the fact that the blood would likely stain his cloak permanantly... but all things considered, it was better that than leaving Taphram to bleed to death in the forest.
"So," Keizen said. He was trying to keep up conversation to keep Taphram awake. "If nothing triggers your 'dark side', as you call it... you can't fight very well, can you?"
"I guess," Taphram replied weakly.
"Can you no
