After my last hectic theory journal, I wanted to fact check a few things, so I re-read most of Book five remembering a specific location in the fortress of the late Princess Burn. Does anyone remember the Weirdling Tower?

This is what I was specifically looking for, because I was looking for Pantala Dragons in Paryah(still not spellchecking right now), and I thought the weirdling tower was the best place to look. For anyone who forgot, Burn collects weird things in the weirdling tower- including stuffed dragons. I thought I remembered there being at least some other dragon in the tower but the Nightwing Scarlet destroyed, and I was right. It's a white dragon without wings, with little stubs where the wings should grow. The other fully stuffed dragon is a MudWing with striated red lines along his outstretched wings, no claws, no teeth, and a puzzled expression. That's not the only instance of strange dragons in the Wierdling Tower either. There are also: "half a wing speckled purple and gray unlike any dragon's she'd[Sunny] ever seen", a coil of tail with strange lichens growing on it, misshapen tails and melted scales, tongues with three forks instead of two, and a number of oddly bent teeth and claws.

First thing's first: lets get what seem to be the less remarkable things out of the way:
The thrice tonged tongues and misshapen tails are most likely DNA RNG birth defects of regular dragons.
Melted scales: RainWing venom
Now the obvious: the purple-gray speckled wing is most likely a SilkWing's wing.

Something interesting, I think, are the oddly bent teeth and claws. This could also by DNA RNG, but I think it would be slightly more interesting if Scavengers made them, as tools. And I think It would be interesting if the Mud Wing Missing such attachments was once their supplier. That got very dark very quickly. The other peculiar thing about that Mudwing where the red lines and puzzled expression I have no explanation for.

Now for the wingless dragon. My first instinct screams silk wing, but the book's description suggests otherwise: "It had little stubs on it's back that had never grown into wings. There was something eerily snakelike about it. The most truly horrifying part was the look on it's face" (pg 100)
There is nothing, at least to me, that is eerily snakelike about SilkWings. Something leading further away from that conclusion is this dragon's wingbuds. Sunny remarks that they "had never grown into wings" calmly, which makes it seem like there was nothing spectacular about them except that they had not grown. If they where SilkWing wingbuds, there logically should have been four of them, causing Sunny more curiosity. My conclusion: this is either a strangely snakelike SilkWing, the unlikley ofspring of and Icewing and silkwing, something animus-touched, a new sort of dragon, or combination of any of the former. I think it's new dragon that lives underground, hence the winglessnes and paleness, and the 'we literally have never heard of this dragon before'-ness (things that live in total darkness often have no pigment.) They would live in either Paryah, Pantalla or both. The case for either continent goes like this:

Pantala:
We've been on Pariah for ten whole books, and have NEVER heard of this other tribe for over 2 thousand years (or something like that)since Darkstalker. and there is clearly some sort of tunnel system underneath Pantala that these dragons could have created, and then hid because of the clear superiority of the HiveWings and the wish to be left alone. I hope I'm not the only one who thought Pantala should have had more that three tribes when Paryiah had seven. Also, the sales dragon who gave it to Burn said it was "The unholy offspring of a SandWing and an IceWing". The seaside side of the Sand-Ice border is exactly where Luna is carried from Pantala to Paryiah, and it could be deduced that is where the mystery dragon was found.
Paryaia:
Let's not forget where this dragon turned up: Parryiah. Lots of maps on the inter webs, in an attempt to find the NightWing kingdom, outline that the Claws of the Clouds mountains are virtually a no-man's land when it comes to kingdom territories. Dragon's often fly over them, but very rarely explore under them. Mountains have volume- and a lot of it, especially if you count the ground underneath the mountains. I think a tribe of dragons could possibly sit there undisturbed and undiscovered for millennium. Also, clay encountered something under the mountain while he was escaping. It was white, sticky, and foul, and it's still a mystery.

I really don't know where to go with this one. like the title says, It's a mystery of Weirdling Tower. The best thing about Tui, is that if there's a mystery, it's usually there for a reason, and will be solved eventually.


There's one more thing I'd like to mention from book 5 that's not unsolved, but unresolved: Flower's family. Flower is very clearly the mother or close relative of the two scavengers Sunny found with the dream visitor: Fluffy and Holler. They asked for Sunny to bring their mother back when they met her. she seemed to have no inkling of that, and did exactly nothing about it. I guess the best dragon to close this plot hole would be Winter, and his Scavenger Zoo. I would also expect to see more of Smolder, and hopefully Thorn too. I remember almost every dragon going out of their way to save a scavenger in their own pov once per book. Clay in the chaotic sky kingdom, Tsunami in the boat at sea, Glory in Blaze's Ice kingdom base; even Clearsight helped her friend free scavengers in the special edition. It might not happen in the following four books, sine we seem to be leaving Pariah behind for now, but I hope it happens soon.

That's all for now, I've been writing for way too long as it is.
I do still want to talk about the situation of Pariah and Pantala on their planet, in relation to each other, their equator, and ocean currents.
Spoilers Ahead, If you have not read Wings of Fire 11 The Lost Continent, You've been warned. 
These are just some theories of what's to come, and some initial thoughts and feelings I have about all that we got from this first glimpse Pantala.

First of all the theories:
I planed to go into this new series after completely re-reading the entirety of the old one. I didn't even finish book two, but I was first of all looking out for the identity of something that which has gone entirely unexplained since the very beginning of the series.

This is a very small detail in the first book, but while Clay is escaping the cave in the underground river, he comes to a cavernous area. At the end of it, he has more apprehension about how far the exit might be, and attempts to explore the source of another little trickle of water into the main stream. As he follows it, he starts to smell something foul, and he feels a burning sensation on his scales, and finds that where his scales feel uncomfortable, they have white sticky-stuff on them When he fails to remove it, he spreads it, and he eventually passes out. It couldn't have been raining venom, because that stuff is black, a liquid, not sticky,has a much more painful sensation, it just eats your scales, not sticking to them. At later times, that left the possibility for it to be some kind of scavenger trap, although I'm not sure how they would make materiel like that.

If you remembered that detail, I hope you just skipped to here, because now there's only one thing that makes sense: It's silk wing silk. That brings up a lot more questions than the one it solves: (> means 'which leads to the question)
How old is the silk, Wouldn't it degrade over time? > Has a Silkwing visited Pyrahah Before the events of the first book>How did they get there?> Why are there no records of them> Is there a cover up?
This silk was sticky and gave off a burning sensation> Either there was some sort of drug in the Silkwing who made it (we know drugs influence silk, as evidenced by the green tint in Swordtail's silk after he snorted the stimulant, or this is a different type of silk that had some offensive/defensive capabilities(do silkwings still have that ability now, or have the hivewings bred it out of them?>Is whatever made the silk give a burning sensation hurt the silkwing, or not? Did it kill the silkwing? Is it possible the silkwing was half hivewing, sandwing, or rainwig, and their natural venom mixed with their silk? Where they a flamesilk, and flamesilk still burns chemically even after it stops glowing?

Of course, that's based solely on the possibility that Clay did indeed run into silkwing silk. It still might not have been silkwing silk. All I'm saying is this is a possible solution to something that has been unresolved on for a long time. Here are my two top theories:

  • During one of the storms, a silkwing got carried over the sea and landed near the sand kingdom during the war. They flew straight over the desert In land, and ran into burn, who wanted it for the weird ling tower. The silkwing ran all the way to the mountains, and was stabbed by burn or burns soldiers, just before they where able to escape by blocking a cave opening with their webs(Wich now sting like efire because of the venomin their veins. The sandwing attempts to get in cause a rockslide, trapping the silkwing forever by the water. Their final solace is seeing the silkworm cave, and they die by the former cave exit. Their rotting carcass is what smells so bad
Th other theory of how this comes to be is very similar, only it follows a silk wing who is actively trying to flee Pantalla because she is half hive wing, and their silk is painful because it mixed with natural hivewing venom.

(One thing I feel the need to check after this, are exactly what is in the weirdling tower, because I feel like a four-winged dragon is mentioned, but nothing else of interest)

Another thing I want to mention, is my theory I had a while ago that Half-tribe dragons always look more like their mother than their father, sighting Darkstalker and Sunny. I feel like that hivewings "Always have black scales from their common ancestor: Clearsight kinda proves my theory. It's thousands of years and several generations later, and NO hivewing, is missing black scales from their eternal matriarch? That's incredibly interesting considering Sunny doesn't have a black scale on her at all. And while Darkstalker has white scales, he has so few of them that there's no question he looks more like his mother than his father. Interesting.

I meant to put some first impressions in here, but I guess that'll have to wait till later too, because this is taking a bit too long, but there's one more thing I'd like to mention.
Isn't it interesting that the Pantala dragons have Queens just like Pyriah? We know that dragon tribes got queens after an event called the Scorching, which happened about two thousand years before Moon first contacts Darkstalker. Before then, it sounds like dragons roamed Parayah without any sort of organization, and scavengers had the edge over a lone dragon(I think, have to fact check that too.[It's somewhere in the Darstalker ark, when Webs is trying to teach about the Scorching but the students want to hear about Darkstalker]) That makes me wonder about Pantala. Where they apart of the Scorching too, or where they not? Is it possible the idea to have a queen and tribe came from Pantala before it was implemented in paryiah? Remember, a the end of Darkstalker's book, when Clearsight turns to the open sea, she doesn't just see a future on a new continent, she first remembers myths about there being one. Than mean there where myths about Pantala in Darkstalkers time, the oldest timestamp we have in the series besides the scorching, which means the myth was a myth way back then, which means contact with that Island happened even a much longer long time ago than a long time ago.

one more random theory: Cricket asks if anyone else saw the meteor that sky fire rained from, and we also know that the only thing that blocks mind-reading is sky fire, So This might by totally false, and I have to go back and check if Cricket is wearing anything, but perhaps the reason the queen can't control her is because of some random skyfire secret Tui is hiding from us. Besides, if the mind control only works on Hivewings, an entire tribe descended from a tribe that can read minds, it's makes sense if their mind control can be blocked by the same thing that blocks mind-reading.

Im'ma sign out for now. I'm still swimming with theories, and am exited to go back and fish for details in more books, and please comment if you have any thoughts at all, that's how theories grow, and turn out right or wrong.

P.S. I know I spelled Parhyhiaya wrong ten different times and none of them are right. I'm just too lazy to fix it right now.
On a Mountain Crag
By some miracle, my program didn't crash as soon as I opened it, and I was able to finish the one sketch I wasn't ready to up an abandon. Funily enough I started this sketchin december, but thought it looked better for summer anayway. So I guess this is my pic for June. Here's to hoping I get some new hardware by July. And, that I am able to finish a sketch for May.

HTTYD3 first trailer just dropped!!


Toothless promises to bring his A+ game on the expressions once again!

I'm going to be in pain until March first Next Year, but that'll give me time to finish season 5, and get my technical difficulties fixed to make some fan art!
1: I need a new drawing Program, the one I used to use can't stop crashing and I cant fix it. I won't be uploading a dragon for May because I cant because of that. It stinks, and I hate it.
2: I use the camera on a device to upload traditional art to DA, and for some reason that camera can no longer focus on close things, so I can't upload any traditional art without it being blurry. This also stinks.
3: I've had this massive terrible pony burnout since January because of reasons you may or may not know about. It's specifically Bronyanalysis burnout, but they're really the only reasons I draw ponies.
4: Animation takes FOREVER, and as soon as your halfway done, what you're working on is irrelevant and outdated.
5: I have a life. Also I'm addicted to Pokemon Showdown. HELP.
