A Place to Rest // Anna &Firebird

Somehow Firebird found himself attempting to navigate through a horrible blizzard. He wasn’t quite sure just how he ended up on this mountain but he knew that he needed to get away soon, already he could feel his powers draining fast.

It took some time but finally the Firebird’s golden eyes were looking down at a small kingdom, just what he needed! Shivering heavily his eyes scanned the area searching for any signs of an open window or just somewhere he’d be able to rest, he needed to get somewhere warm the weather of the area wasn’t enough it was still just too cold for his taste.

Eventually he located an open window a dove straight for it. His ebony talons stretched out to grab the ledge but instead he ended up slipping and landing on the castle floor with a thud. 

He hadn’t been this weak in well, he couldn’t even remember how long, that storm took more out of him then he’d realized. He carefully attempted to stand then shook out his now muddy-red feathers as best he could trying to get as much of the melted snow off him as possible.

Traces of a Wonderland // Neth, Urúvion & Rapunzel


Rapunzel silently took in her surroundings before sliding off Neth’s back. A lot of the plants around where they stood seemed to have died long ago, while different types of agricultural equipment, which was surely used at some point, now only collected rust. Since the townspeople had become ill, it was logical that the rest of the town was beginning to look a bit neglected. 

The blonde cautiously began walking down a broken cobblestone road that lead into the town. With every step, she felt a stronger pull towards helping these people, she became more confident about sharing her gift and healing those in need.

"So… They don’t know I’m coming?" Rapunzel asked, nervous they would simply fear her as well. 

"Well, not you in particular but we did tell them we would try to come back with someone who will be able to help them, one who wouldn’t frighten them." Neth said as he shifted back to human form and walked over to stand next to where Rapunzel stood.

Urúvion attempted to land on a branch in a near-by tree only for it to snap under him. He hesitantly moved to the branch below gently resting a bit on his weight on it before finally curling his talons completely around it after determining it safe.

Traces of a Wonderland // Neth, Urúvion & Rapunzel


Rapunzel simply nodded and crouched lower to Neth, trying to avoid the cold wind. Seeing Urúvion pull up next to her, Rapunzel smiled and offered a small wave. 

This was certainly the craziest thing she had done since going to see the lights with Eugene over the summer… A part of Rapunzel wished he was here now; having his company would probably make her feel better about traveling with strangers… Although Eugene too was a stranger when she first traveled with him, and look how well that turned out! 

Urúvion’s eyes turn to Rapunzel and he simply nods n response to her wave.

They continued their flight for a time before finally Neth began to slowly descend. His paws landed on the rather withered grass just on the outskirts of the town. Just from a glance one could easily see just how dark and sickly the place seemed, though with the right help, t was clear the town could easily find a new life to it.

Neth folded his wings so Rapunzel could easily climb down. “This is the place…they’ve recent been struck by a terrible illness that has already taken quite a few, my brother and I would’ve helped earlier when we first arrived here but, I have no healing magic of my own and my brother only uses fire to heal and that more then likely would’ve scared them away from seeking help from us…”

A Flame in the Darkness // Sally & Urúvion


Sally smiled, slightly perplexed at the question. “This is my kitchen. It’s where I cook food and make beverages for myself and my creator.” A small look of realisation crossed her face as she realised why the phoenix probably hadn’t seen one before. “I suppose you wouldn’t spend much time indoors, would you. Depending on if you’d like some food, I have a variety of different meats or insects if you’d like. I’m planning on using them to cook for one of my friends some time.” She gave a rather mischievous smile at that. She wasn’t quite sure how she was going to convince Hans to try her concoctions but she would somehow.

'Interesting…' the phoenix mused as he continued to look around the area, 'and you'd be correct, this would count as being my second time within a building of some sort. Otherwise I remain outdoors.'

He tilts his head to the side a bit. 'No thank you, I actually have no real need for food,  only need consume firestones and even then that's rare. Not to offend, but I wouldn't think that a ragdoll would need any sort of food either, unless you simply cook for others?' 

Traces of a Wonderland // Neth, Urúvion & Rapunzel


Rapunzel let out a breath she hadn’t realized she had been holding once Neth reassured her safety. 

As his wings spread, the blonde couldn’t help but watched curiously. Chunks of snow and leaves rose into the air, creating a ruckus amongst the forest creatures. A familiar-looking investigative bunny hopped out the bushes and tilted his head at Rapunzel. All she had time for was a quick smile and a light wave before Neth took off into the air. 

A frantic squeal escaped Rapunzel as she rushed to cling onto Neth more tightly. It was hard to keep her eyes open at the speed they were traveling, but Rapunzel didn’t want to miss anything.

Looking behind her, she tried to spot Urúvion, but could only see the endless stream of blonde hair whipping along behind her. 

"ARE YOU SURE I’M NOT TOO HEAVY?!" She yelled over the wind to Neth.

Neth slowed to a gentle glide to as heard Rapunzel attempting to ask a question over the roaring winds. With the winds now a tad calmer it was easier to hear and be heard, though luckily he’d managed to catch what she’d said anyway.

His ears flick back to indicate he had been listening though his eyes remained forward. “No, you’re not heavy at all.” Neth reassured with a small careful shrug.

Urúvion wove his way around the golden trail of hair that flowed behind the girl his brother was carrying. He eventually caught up and flew beside the two remaining just a ways away that way should for some reason Rapunzel fall he could help catch her.

raggedy-sally asked: Sally smiled at the beautiful bird in greeting. "Hello there Uruvion. I was just wondering, where is your favourite place travel to?"

The phoenix glanced over at the rag-doll and clicked his beak in thought. 'I tend not to travel back to places I've already been nor do I learn the names of places…but if I were to choose one I did learn then it would be the desert palace of Agrabah. It is certainly somewhere I would consider possibly visiting again.'

A Flame in the Darkness // Sally & Urúvion


Withdrawing her arm, she felt a little bit of relief as she glanced at the bird’s sharp talons. She marvelled at the bird’s outstretched wings for a moment before turning and gesturing for him to follow. After the short walk up the hill and ushering him inside, she lead him to her little kitchen. “It isn’t much, but it’s home. Do you need any blankets or a drink perhaps?”

The phoenix followed silently after the rag doll hovering just a short ways above her as they made the short trip to her house. Upon entering the kitchen Firebird landed a top a counter, his talons lightly clicking against it as he settled.

He ruffled his feathers a bit and they slowly fell back into place after he calmed. 'No thank you.' He responded as he looked around the area curiously. 'Strange….what sort of place is this?' He asked, he’d never actually seen a place like this before, after all he spent all his time outdoors wandering rather then inside buildings. He’d been in a palace once but then he didn’t actually explore it much.

Traces of a Wonderland // Neth, Urúvion & Rapunzel


"AHH!" Holding her head, Rapunzel stumbled backwards. 

What just happened?! Did that bird just speak to me… telepathically?? 
With wide eyes, the blonde had another realization. Oh my gosh, does that mean he can hear what I’m thinking right now!? 

Hurriedly trying to quiet her thoughts, the blonde peered at the phoenix.

Due to her mild freakout, Rapunzel missed everything Neth had said and only now realized that both boys had changed forms and that one of them just told her to ‘hop on.’ 

"Okay okay, it’s fine, everything will be alright!” She reassured herself in hushed tones. Taking deep breaths and not knowing how much more magic she could handle, the blonde walked over to Neth, assuming that he was the one she was supposed to ride. Climbing on his back, Rapunzel closed her eyes and firmly wrapped her arms around his neck. 

"Okay. I’m ready." She said, her voice slightly strained and her eyes tightly shut.

The phoenix clicked his beak curiously, the girl seemed to be freaking out a tad, perhaps it was due to the way he communicated? He knew it was strange but how else was he supposed to speak in this form? He shrugged and shook out his feathers a bit deciding against questioning it for now.

Neth adjusted the the weight on his back and stretched out his wings. “You’ll be alright, I’m not gonna let you fall.” He reassured as he crouched down a bit. “Hold on!” He warned, then with a giant flap of his wings he jumped off the ground and into the air.

Firebird screeched lightly stretching out his wings and flying off after his brother, staying just a little way next to him just to help make sure Rapunzel wouldn’t fall.

Caged Desert Fire // Jasmine & Firebird


"Wow," Jasmine replied, genuinely impressed. That was a lot of different things to turn into, she had never heard of anyone besides a genie being able to accomplish such magic. But even with genies they were only mimicking bodies that they had seen before, their various forms weren’t different looks of their own selves. The princess had to wonder though, with so many versions of yourself how could you honestly know which one was the real one? Subconsciously Jasmine glanced down at her own body in thought. 

A human form. Suddenly Jasmine felt bad for speaking to him in such a pet-like fashion earlier, Urúvion clearly had more than the mind of an animal. “You’re quite the shapeshifter.” She praised with a friendly smile. “I guess that dashes my father’s idea to keep you in the gardens with the flamingos and peacocks since you aren’t really a bird. Certainly not a pet.” The girl laughed goodnaturedly. “Though you’re welcome to stay here and rest for a while if you’d like. I’m sure flying in the desert can get tiring.” The princess had of course done the same with Carpet but it wasn’t her actually doing any of the work and bedies Carpet wasn’t technically a living thing so he didn’t tire at all. For them it was no hassle.  

"Thank you Urúvion," Jasmine replied, resisting the urge to pat him on the head. Not actually a bird. "I have to say I agree with you, I do make most things work after all." The princess smiled smugly without any effort to hide it. "Power?" Her gaze in the mirror lifted up to the redish-orange feather placed in her hair. Jasmine’s mind flitted to Abis Mal and when he had stolen a Roc feather to turn himself and his thieves into whirlwinds. She wondered if this feather would do anything like that…"That’s very kind of you, I’ll make sure to hold onto it."

At his comment about Agrabah, Jasmine nodded. “I suppose my opinion is biased but I think so too. Not everyone can handle life in a climate like this.”

Firebird clicked his beak in slight annoyance at the thought of being treated as a mere pet. 'Indeed I would much rather not be treated in such a fashion…' he said shaking out his head feathers to clear his mind of the annoying thought. 'Though your offer is appreciated, travel can get tiring as you say, though luckily for me I can easily deal with the desert's heat.'

'You're quite welcome Princess.' he says nodding his head respectfully. 'Yes, if it is crushed it turns into a powered similar to what I recall being known as gun power, only it dose not need to be set on fire, rather all you need do is throw a small pinch and it will ignite.'

Golden eyes turn to the window and out to the palace garden. 'Most humans are simply unable to deal with the heat.' He noted with a small shrug.
