Chapter 1 - Ordinary Life In Cliffside
- By SoulDragonWithFlow
The very first few beams of early summer morning peaked over the ocean horizon, bestowing the small dragon town of Cliffside in natural fiery beauty. The sun’s very edges could just be seen over the water far to the east, sending the first tiny glimmers of natural orange streaks of fire and cosmic breath across the clear sky. Below lay Cliffside itself; named so due to its placement a stone’s throw from the edge of a cliff, the land dropping away suddenly a few hundred feet, before giving way to jagged rocks, sharp outcrops and eventually, an almost enterally flat bea

Prologue - Begin
Author’s Note: This is a direct sequel to my previous large project, The Familiar Stranger, however, you are NOT required to have read that for Wrath of Winter to make sense. Wrath of Winter will be its own stand-alone story, and any important details from the previous story will be recalled and explained, and will be few and far between anyway. I hope you enjoy the plot I have planned, as I’ve put a lot of work into it and plan to introduce lots of new lore, species and characters to the planet Sarahn. Enjoy!

The Wrath of Winter Synopsis
Over two years have passed since Mistyte’s death, and the quiet dragon settlement of Cliffside has all but forgotten about the turmoil caused by the Vectriform and her will to simply survive. Life however has continued as normal, almost seeming dull by comparison; but despite what some may think, lightning can, and often does strike twice.
Tragedy strikes Cliffside, when Twilight mysteriously disappears without a trace, leaving behind nothing but the haunting memory of her own screams. With time against them, her friends must work together, bringing together all of their knowledge, r
This is my first deviation, so I hope you like it. It is a story set in the world of Spyro the Dragon, sometime in his late teen years. I've tried to use a range of techniques for symbolism and representation, including using colour and timing, and also I have tried to make the language as descriptive as varied as possible. The main characters this story are not yet completely grown adults, however they have reached sexual maturity, as well as completed all forms of basic training which have given them the skills they need to get through life well. I.e., flight skills, elemental training, biology, literacy, basic history, honour, fo
Rebirth Background and Synopsis
Okay, first the basic storyline and Synopsis (kind of the sort of thing you may find on the back of DVDs)
Have you ever had something stolen from you? Have you ever thought you have everything, only to discover you have nothing? Have you ever been offered help that you knew you just didn't deserve? But most of all, have you ever been in love?
The answer is yes to all these questions for Raiko, a young, black male Dragon, incredibly strong in mind body and spirit. One day, Raiko finds not only badly injured, but also chained and suppressed by the Dragon elders, unfairly taken to be an enemy and a threat to th

Prologue - Restless Night
Through the darkness in a silent room, a young black dragon stirred restlessly up and down through the layers of sleep. His mate, the somewhat beautiful blue and white dragoness Twilight, slept heavily next to him, oblivious to his constant shuffling. Raiko awoke completely for the fifth time that night, to find he had barely slept another 20 minutes since he last awoke from his light sleep. Raiko at this point had lost his patience and instead of trying fruitlessly for a sixth time for any form of decent sleep, he decided he would t
The Familiar Stranger Synopsis
Little over a year has passed since Raiko and Twilight first met and things are moving quite smoothly for them. With the help of his beloved and wonderfully kind hearted mate, Raiko is finally beginning to come to terms with his past and is enjoying every day of his new life: both day and night. The days are growing colder however and befitting the stormy autumn weather and the icy winter to come, Raiko’s life is about to be changed forever. Raiko’s little world is turned upside down, and his relationship with Twilight tested as his past finally catches up with him; the result of a single, restless
