Accidents can cripple, hurt, and cause destruction. Well a little known fact is; accidents can also reveal secrets dark secrets. Some secrets we keep to save others some we keep just to save our reputations.
Then we have secrets that are kept to protect ourselves from serious harm. I learned this the hard way; now here I am standing before three creatures of legend. Shaking and in fear for my life just because I had an accident.
The day started off like any other day. My small suburban neighborhood was silent like it should be. The forest that was behind our community was alive with only chirpings of birds and other various animals.
I was laying in my front yard soaking up the heat of the day; hoping that summer would go by slowly without anyt

I was never a happy person in life but it got worse as time went on. Everyday it seemed like everyone was getting it better than me and all I could do was stand by watching. Work was a drag everyday I had to work the late shifts and early morning shifts trust me not a good combination. My boss was always a jerk greeting me everyday "Why the hell are you so late I am knocking an hour off your paycheck for today." The truth was I was never late I was early in fact.
Many people told me I should take a break and let all of my emotions come out instead of taking it everyday for "bad" things could happen. I didn't care though why should I worry what could happen oh I could have a stroke, at the time I didn't care. Life was miserable yet no one seemed in as bad of shape as I was, but I am here to tell you what happened to me.

A letter that is all it took for my life to be turned upside down. I had to make a decision between a friend and a passion. The choice between keeping that friend or destroying him.
I should explain what happened. On May fourth, 2012, dragons returned to the world. Not all people were a hundred percent human; a bloodline ran in people all around the world the world. This bloodline was of course draconic; for some reason the gene was reactivated in a bunch of random people.
Changing people of all ages, races, and gender into dragons. They are capable of speech and do not eat people for they have kept their intelligence. Still some humans did not trust these creatures, these men and women were called The Hunters.
Standing against the dragons; they only accepted the best fighters to slay these beasts. Claiming that the dragons would rise and destroy humans it left the remaining humans uneasy. How could one not fantasizing about fighting dragons even if

"Bent get up dude mom and dad want to get going like right now." A voice said to me through the darkness of the closet that I slept in.
Without even moving or lifting my head I replied groggily "Tell them I will be down later."
The closet door closed and I stood up; stretching from my head all the way to the end of my tail. M claws dug into the carpeted floor as the feeling of refreshment flowed through me. Kyle, the person who woke me, was downstairs talking to his parents.

*BEEEEEEEP* "You have got to be kidding me they set an alarm today of all days?" I mumbled still half asleep on the old green couch in my father's living room.
There went my plan for sleeping all day but they were going to have to deal with Mr. Grumpy-Dragon all day now. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!" screamed my little eight year old brother.
My ear fin twitched in pain from the sudden loud noise and I rolled over throwing the pillow over my head. Why did they say it was my birthday anyways? They should now us dragons are hatched not birthed like humans its hatchday to me. I settled in my new position and attempted to go back to sleep.
This plan however was foiled as my little brother's friend got up and screamed with him "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!"
"Oh god no it begins can't I just sleep through this day?" I moaned
They giggled as my little brother played with my tail and jerked on it trying to get me out of bed. I had to get these kids off of me and I had a

"I hope not. I'm tired of it myself," I told her, finally relaxing after a long and tense interrogation session.
Once I was proven to be me, she showed me off to the other employees to make sure they all knew of my new looks so there wouldn't be any confusion. It didn't help that I had to go shoeless for that first week. I got into the habit and tucking my feet under my chair to keep people from both staring at my talons or tripping over my feet.

My name is Ethan, my friends call me Farm Fresh and I was just your typical 6 1 lanky college guy. Im going to tell you a story of what happened when I was at an airsoft operation. This story may sound a little out there. Well, I have learned to keep my mind open. Never over look the unlikely or it could be costly. I found that out the hard way. But before I go off on one of my long philosophical rants that can bore my parents to tears, let me begin my story. It all happened in late July of last year.

Light, from an open window, gently filtered down onto a mess of brown hair. The owner of this hair was hidden under a blanket, on a bed. Sighing, the sleeping lump, in the bed sat up and the blanket fell down to reveal a boy almost going into manhood.

Right from the first day, being part dragon had never been pleasant. Oh, sure, it might seem like some fantasy geek's dream come true, but take it from me, the whole thing is much closer to a nightmare.
Let's see if I can explain this.
Friday night I was a regular, slightly pudgy guy, and by Saturday, I looked like a giant lizard on steroids. You know what? I hate scales. I hate them. They rub against each other all the time, whenever you move; it's almost like wearing chain mail. Except it's attached to your skin.
Oh, and then there was the actual dragon I'd merged with, who had a nasty habit of arguing with me inside my head.
This is a ridiculous mode of transportation was his current complaint, as I rode my bike down the street. Thankfully, being half dragon comes two-for-one with basic shapeshifting abilities, so I was able to revert mostly back to human form when I wanted. The bad news: I still had two plates of ar

I awoke that morning in a sort of daze, remembering the night before. I closed my eyes again and smiled. Then I felt something I didn't expect, there was air flowing back and forth on the back of my head. I looked up and saw that my fan wasn't running so what could it be? I attempted to sit up and was blocked by a large scaly arm sitting over my waste. I then realize what was blowing on my head. My costume from the night before had been sleeping on top of me. Since it was just my costume it had no great weight to it so I hadn't been able to feel it at all.
I gently lifted the arm off my waist and snuck out of bed trying to wake my costume. I headed downstairs to grab some food. I peered over at the clock, "9:45, dang I normally never sleep that late. Glad I received that costume on a Friday." I walked over to the fridge to grab some milk for some cereal. I closed it to turn around an almost drop the milk in surprise. In front of me stood

Smoke filled my nostrils as I took a deep breath and looked around at the halfway burnt down town. My sword swung idly from my side as I strolled into the inn; inside soot covered villagers were yelling about a dragon destroying their town and what they should do about it. The town's elder rubbed his wrinkled forehead and finally stood saying
"Please good people please silence," and everyone did; so he continued "It is obvious that we have two options one beg the queen to forfeit some knights to our cause or two we pack and leave."
Again chaos broke loose as the villagers heard what they thought was their only options. I pushed my way to the head of the crowd and jumped up onto the stage that the elder was sitting upon.
"OR YOU HAVE OPTION THREE," I yelled and everyone stopped to look at me. I felt pride rush through me as I stood tall in my dragon skin boots, gauntlets, tunic, and shield.
The elder looked at me and finally signaled for silence "Who are you m

The sun felt good on my face; slowly I crawled out of my sleeping bag. Morning dew on the ground moistened my dried hands. I quietly slipped on my shoes; suddenly something fell from my hoodie. It fluttered to the ground; I reached down and picked up the object.
I was holding a letter in my hand. It contained no name; the only thing on the envelope was a dark sword. Without even thinking I already knew who wrote the letter. The most secretive group to walk the face of the earth; The Hunters.
My hands shook as I ripped the letter open. Carefully I slipped the message out of the envelope. It read "Announcing your opinion like that can get you killed. What you did was stupid and reckless; still it took guts. We could use someone like you; if you think you can take the heat."
My first reaction was shock; the world's greatest dragon slayers wanted me. Of all the people left after the change they wanted me. Only if I could take the heat though; they literally meant it

Rock 'n Roll that is the only thing that I live for. Loud music, head banging, partying it was all for the spirit of the music. My parents disowned me for my unnatural love for ear bleeding loud music. They called it trash, but I call it my life force.
Nothing would stop me from buying CD after CD of the stuff. It was funny because I would go home and my mother would yell, "JASON YOU SPENT YOUR CASH ON THAT CRAP AGAIN!?!"
I would just nod and rush past her to my room so I could listen to my new disc. I am sixteen; don't I deserve my own lifestyle different from theirs? Many parents would disagree but the kids thought different. Parents were controlling and that will never change.

I tripped as I walked over to it. It was like a giant slide and I slid down for about
half a minute or so. I fell with a sudden thud and lying on my stomach, I slowly got up,
brushing off the rocks sticking to my shirt, and I was shocked at what I saw.
All over the place were little lizards, but I quickly noticed they had wings!
I quickly came to the conclusion that this was...A DRAGON NEST! All of them just seemed
to be staring at me, every now and then I heard a little 'squee' noises they made
every now and then. While still staring at me, they started walking towards me. They
weren't that big, as they were only about the size of baby golden retreivers, but that
wouldn't be a problem, except there were about 15 of them and knew I wouldn't stand a chance
They continued silently walking to me, while I looked all around for a way out,

I ran through the forest and attempt not to bother me the pain in my foot, tried not to bother me about the Dragon who were chasing me.
"You can not escape man", it hissed while it approached.
"Come here and I promissse that you will receive a quick and painlessss death."
I responded by attempting to step up the pace, but to no avail. My foot was badly damaged. The blood ran quickly and I knew that I soon would have to stop, whether I wanted to or not.
The dragon hissed again:
"It lookssss like your foot is badly damaged".
"Thisss game can only end badly for you, Come here now!"
The dragon leapt forward and I felt how its claws got a grip on my shoulders and pushed me to the ground.

Unfortunately Granice shook her head and replied, "Its even better... life changing moment ahead, so be happy."
I nodded to show I understood and put a forced grin on my face. Suddenly we stopped by an icecream shop and Granice looked at me. "Can we get something to eat... I am starving." She put a paw to her stomach and held it there.

"Oh my head " I said as I sat up "Where am I?" I asked realizing that I was in a dark, damp cave. Light was shining at the end of the cave; I got up and ran towards the exit. The cave exit was very wide so I had a clear way out; outside the cave was a vast forest. The moon shone through the trees and a gentle breeze blew, the night air was warm.
I spotted a calm blue lake, I walked over and seen my reflection in the water. My messy brown hair, green eyes, and well tuned body, all looked back at me. The water was cold as I washed my face off, "Who are you?" I heard an angry female voice say. I turned around and seen a girl about my age standing by a huge pine tree.
"Oh thank god someone that can tell me what's going on." I said standing up, "Actually you better explain to me what you are doing here." The girl commanded of me, she had black hair, blue eyes, and a slim but muscular body. "I am sorry but I just woke up in a cave and I can't remember a thing except my name.

Tears dripped down my mud-stained face and onto my blood-stained pants. I had been in this damn jungle for four hours now, separated from my camping buddies after I had left them to satisfy my thirst at the nearby river. Turns out I had a really bad sense of direction and even worse luck. I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere - I wasn't able to find the way back in the time it had taken me to get to the river in the first place. "SHIT!" I screamed, slamming my fist into the ground. I retracted my now bleeding hand, regretting that violent action, too late.Rebirth (Ice Dragon TF)3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

While I'm honoured that you'd like to read my works, I regrettably have to inform you that this story has been discontinued after eight chapters and a sidestory merge. There won't be any more chapters in this story, sadly.
I am however working on a new project that will hopefully outshine this old gal - it's going to be released some time in the future, and I hope you'll be there to read that was well.
If you can deal with this story ending abruptly with no end in sight, then by all means read on, and dream.
People dream. It's natural. Daydreams you usually control and you can make them whatever you want. Sometimes they get forgotten, sometimes they spring back to life after a long time, or just a heartbeat. Sometimes, they come true.

Low, dark grey clouds hovered over a wide, short brick building. Wind shook the few trees that stood in the small green yards that lay on either side of the two doors that made up the main entrance. A long gazebo, with a tin roof, hung over the entrance, support from two brick columns held it up. On each side of the doors, four windows peered out from the building. Orange and brown leaves blew down the street, around the numerous cars parked on the curb-side of the road.
Rustling from the leaves echoed through the eerily quiet town. All life seemed to have disappeared from the streets and outside world. Nothing moved or made a sound. The silence was broken by the fall of footsteps on the concrete sidewalk. A teen, dressed in a red winter-coat, blue jeans, and a pair of gray and green Nikes, quickly ran towards the big building.

I slumped on my chair and sighed. It had been a hell of a weekend. I worked nearly non-stop for two days and I was dead tired. Cashier life isn't as easy as one might think, particularly at this time of the year: Christmas. Fortunately, I was free to do whatever I wanted for the next two days, and I'd take the most advantage of it.

She quickly turned the corner to see the source, and there they were. Sitting in a nest made of rocks, were four green dragon eggs, illuminated by a small dragon glow spell, like someone wanted them to be found. Alestra slowly approaches the nest and climbed inside.
