The continuation of Varian meeting the Moon Dragoness. I did post a (sort of) reference picture for the Sun and Moon Dragons themselves, so feel free to look at that if you want. For now, onto the story!
After a long flight, during which, Varian continuously panicked at how high the dragoness was flying, she reached a cave that peaked above the clouds. The dragoness entered the cave, gracefully, but would not let Varian down yet. The kid demanded to be put down, but soon, he heard the sound of heavy footsteps approaching them. From within the cave, a bright yellow dragon appeared. The dragon had feathers along with his glowing golden scales.
When the golden dragon saw what the blue dragoness had, he was furious. he approached her and glared at the human hanging from between her teeth. He started growling. The dragoness put Varian on the ground and stepped over him, keeping the yellow dragon back. the two beasts, from what Varian was observing, seemed to be arguing with one another, growling and snapping their jaws. Varian though this would be a good time to run. he picked himself off the ground and quickly ran to the cave’s entrance, only to find a straight drop down.
As Varian froze from the fear of falling, the blue dragoness noticed he had wandered off and picked him up again. She walked up to the yellow dragon and paused, as though waiting for a response. As Varian stared at the dragon in pure terror, it looked down to him, then back to the blue dragoness. The yellow dragon huffed, then walked passed the dragoness. Varian looked at him in awe, seeing the golden dragon sit at the mouth of the cave, until the blue dragoness walked deeper into the cave. Soon, she reached a giant pile of leaves, and laid down, placing Varian in the crook of her elbow. Before Varian could react, however, she gently placed her neck over him, pinning him against her arm, making Varian 100% sure that he was not going anywhere anytime soon.
And that’s it for the second part! I’m not sure when I’ll be able to post another picture, but I would be more than happy to do so if you guys really like my Dragons of Corona Idea. Let me know what you think, and I will see you guys next time!
Introducing the Sun and Moon dragons of my Tangled Dragons AU. I liked the idea of dragons flying without wings, and dragons with fur and/or feathers, and eventually I came up with the design for these two. You may have seen my previous picture of Varian and the Moon Dragon, so this is a full reference of both dragons (And Holy cow! Did it take a lot of work to do!!!)
The story behind them is that two dragons used to look over the lands of Corona. They had powers no one could explain. to heal, and to destroy. Night and Day. They were complete opposites, but they were monogamous (mates for life). They loved each other very much, and kept the world in balance.
Millennia passed, and the two were finally able to have eggs, which was incredibly rare, and they cared for them unconditionally. But one fateful day, an evil wizard known as Zhan Tiri (since he’s like the big villain in the Tangled Series) found their nest and demanded they gave him power. The dragons of course refused, but the evil wizard was not going to leave empty handed. When the dragons ignored him again, Zhan Tiri destroyed their dragon eggs out of anger, then vanished. The dragons were outraged, heartbroken, and no longer felt they could be anywhere around humans, so they flew far away from Corona, tears falling from their eyes, which created the Golden Flower and Moon Opal.
Ever since, the dragons have been in hiding in a cave on top of a mountain, which peaked above the clouds. The two haven’t shown themselves to any humans, and the years passed by like days.
