it's those poor soldiers again XD


just thought i'd say how i got my idea for this pic...

this is partly inspired by naomi novik's 5th book in the temeraire series... a chequered nettle (a breed of dragon) sweeping the ground with his spiked tail.
the previous pic was also inspired by the scene of Requisicat plowing unstoppably into the soldiers' camp.

Soldier: [Frustrated] "Great. First the wolf packs, then the troll, then those Orc raiders, and now we have to freaking snow storm? Can't this world give us a break? What's next, a giant frost-dragon?"

??? "HEY, YOU LOT! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!"

[Out of the wind and snow came a great frost wyrm, wings beating, tail whipping, maw breathing ice. It glares down at the band of soldier]

Frost Dragon: [Enraged] "YOU'LL ALL REGRET TRESPASSING MY TERRITORY, MORTALS! I HAVE HALF A MIND TO FREEZE YOU ALL OR EAT YOU ALL ALIVE!"

Captain: [Annoyed] "Soldier, you JUST had to say it, do you?"

Soldier 2: "Ah, can it! You never backed up your gum-flapping and tough talk when we were dating, and you still won't do it now! So let us pass and leave us alone!!"

Frost Dragon(ess): [Stunned] "Y-you? What are YOU doing here?!"

Captain: "Wait, you two KNOW EACH OTHER?!"

Soldier 2: *Sigh* "Yes, we had a bit of a history. Met her when I got lost in one of the patrols and next thing you know, we were dating. But it didn't worked out."

Soldier 1: "THAT is SO wrong on SO many levels."

Frost Dragon(ess): [Face-claw] "You don't know half of it."

[Guess you don't need an Internet to have freaked-up dating!]
