I've Won by Scourgeseer I've Won by Scourgeseer
"Here is our first animus."

Albatross snapped out of his daze and looked up, bewildered. "I'm..I'm so-" He began to apologize, but his voice was barely a whisper. The SkyWings looked at eachother for a moment, making Albatross's talons twitch. He could imagine their thoughts. This funny looking cretin is the SeaWing animus we've heard so much about? Lagoon cast her brother a cold look before turning back to the SkyWings. 

"My brother, Albatross. We were just talking this morning about what his next project should be."

It wasn't really a talk. It was more of a: do this or I'll lock you in the eel dungeon for a month, kinda conversation. His mouth twitched, not paying attention to the rest of her dialogue. The last few words, however, snapped him back into reality.

-"something that kills any dragon that might be a threat to me."

That was an absolutely terrible enchantment, Albatross thought to himself, frowning. Any dragon could be a threat to her. Just yesterday, the paranoid, fat hag had nearly executed their chef after she thought he saw him put pufferfish venom into her lobster salad. Albatross felt a smirk spread across his lips, baring his tiny teeth. The music seemed to have died down, and the only dragons still speaking where Lagoon and Albatross. A dull ringing began in his ears.

"Yes," Albatross said. "Although you might recall that I wasn't exactly enthused about any of those ideas." Because you're scared of your own shadow, sister. 

Her beady eyes narrowed in a weak smile. "Then it's lucky that you're not my only animus dragon."

Fathom. Albatross felt as if a sea urchin had just driven its spine deep into his chest. A coldness spread through him. Precious little Fathom. The one who had looks that nobody saw and said to themselves: What's wrong with him? Maybe Lagoon would die before she used up all of Fathom's magic for her own needs. Otherwise she would use it, drain it day by day in her palace that had to be grand. Had to be above water. Had to leech his magic day by day and year after year. Albatross's wings tensed up self consciously. They're all fools. They're going to watch her kill Fathom slowly.

His limbs suddenly stopped being stone. The ringing got louder and louder as he slowly, coldly, stepped in front of Lagoon. His anger was gone. It had faded.

Lagoon's eyes, which had the clarity of a peeled grape, widened enough to where you could see her veins. She bared her teeth, probably wanting to rip her miserable little brother's head off. Like she'd wanted to do since they were hatchlings. Mother never allowed her to spit the truth, she never allowed anyone to say it. Even though it was so damn obvious. Was it a coincidence that he looked nothing like King Hurricane? Oh yeah, nobody doubted it. Sure. That he had white scales. That he hated water until he was one year old and still hated swimming? Of course. Albatross, the weird sibling. The one with the dark eyes and the thin tail. The first animus SeaWing ever. And I'm not even a true SeaWing. The ringing was so loud in his ears, that he could barely hear Lagoon speaking.

"Do you think you're done? Do you think you'll ever be done atoning for what you did to Sapphire? It's not going to end Albatross, you'll always be mine-"

A few seconds earlier, Albatross had thought to himself. Enchant the nearest knife to do whatever I say. Before she could finish her sentence, Albatross hummed a low note and heard a dragon at the back of the crowd gasp as a knife shot up into the air. Slit Lagoon's throat. It's about time I've won.

Man this is awesome! And I agree, I'd love an Albatross Legend, we don't get nearly enough of him. A story of his life leading up to his massacre, perhaps the origins of his existence at all, considering his icewing blood. It'd be an amazing story no doubt!

I need an Albatross Winglet now more than ever... Your little excerpt has really peaked my interest for him more than I thought I'd have, and I applaud you for that.

I absolutely love how you drew this scene, the tone, colors, and character design are all flawless. Amazing work :)

I want a book on him so bad now. 

(although icewings as well as seawings are both evolved to go into the water. in darkstalker legends and winter turning we learned that they swim a lot more than we thought(to hunt, for battle, and just overall transportation when they didnt want to use their wings for some reason). theres a theory that seawings might've been originated from icewings, or the other way around, since they're actually really similar ;3

the atmosphere of this piece is just so epic and chilling, and the pose and accompanying story emphasises this further IMO.

I loved how you portrayed Lagoon in his mind as well.

Albatross, you 'got em' all right.
