Hello there! If this is your first time viewing this RP, you may have noticed a few things. It's been going for a long time, not all of the original players still post, and the mythology and background can be rather dense. As such, you really should check in with me or Bloonewb before joining. Either of us would be happy to help you get integrated and start playing. Thanks!

All was going well on the farms. Adykon and Aerta were expecting yet another child. The archmage had seen several of her children leave the farmstead and she was eager to bring up a new brood. Larek, Caex, Veax, Aura, Orna, and Kos had all left, and many were living on their own farms.

Larek was expecting an egg to be laid soon with his wife, Nyx. Caex and Avera had laid an egg and were waiting for it to hatch. Orna and Tran were still happy together, as were Veax and Hermia. And Kos still lamented that he hadn't had an egg by Sasha yet, although they had been assured it wasn't due to medical issues. Aura and Ryland were still madly in love, and they had plans to marry, but they hadn't yet.

Avear sat at the kitchen table, staring at the egg where it sat comfortably in its basket and swaddled by blankets. "Any day now," She mumbled, ready to finally meet her first child.

Caex walked over to his wife. It had been another hard day on the farm, but he could handle it. The last harvest had been rich, and their income was rather good. Still, all that seemed far away to the red dracon. Clad in a fresh loincloth, he sat down next to Avera.

"Do you think it will be a boy or a girl?" We don't have much longer to keep guessing.

As the sun rose, Nyx was already up, cooking breakfast, cleaning as she worked, she hated to be idly, and this was something she could do easily enough. She never thought she would be preparing herself for motherhood, it just hadn't been an option, intil Larek, she smiled, dishing food onto plates. It was a strange world, and one, she could freely admit, she was happy to be in.

Sasha rose as she did every morning to make breakfast for herself and Kos. She tried to be a good wife, to make up for the fact she still wasn't gravid. She felt like it was somehow her fault, even though she knew that was stupid. Yet she couldn't help that, she nad, after all, always dreamed of having children. O she blamed herself, because she must not want them enough, despite the fact that it was an ache she couldn't get rid of. She k ew what her mother would say, that she was stressing too much over it, and good things come when you least expect them. Well, that had been true for her, with Kos. Maybe she should try and not worry about it. Yet itwas in her nature to worry.

hermia was up, and already had breakfast ready, being the cook she was, she was use to getting up eqrly to prepare food. She loved it though. She tidied up, because a rule she had was a clean kitchen made for better food. While she waited, she did some stretches, merely for the fact she enjoyed it, and it was always good to remind herself she could easily move her body, cooking and dancing were both imoortant to her.

tran was up, working I the fields, making sure everythi g was good. He finished a few jobs, before heading back to the hiuse

Avera's eyes shifted to her husband. "I'll be happy with either, so long as it hatches soon. I'm excited," She said with a smile.

Ryland finished what little chores he had left before walking inside and going to get cleaned up.

Larek took a deep breathe. The food was good, as always. They could afford to eat quite well now that the harvest was in and the money flowed freely. Their farm was rich and there was a large market for the crops it produced. Larek wasn't totally sure himself about fatherhood, but he had not doubt that he and Nyx would give their children all their love. Besides, he wanted to see more beauty in the world, and no female could surpass Nyx, at least in his eyes.

"Thanks, love." He made no mention of the bulge that came with the egg.

Kos got up and helped to clean the house. He had been told by the healers to pitch in and make sure his wife wasn't under any undo stress, as it might interfere with conception. He had made sure that there was nothing wrong with his system, and he had it checked out several times before he was reassured enough to satisfy him. It was on his mind too. Every male dracon wanted to imagine himself as the great father of a brood, much like a dragon wanted to populate its territory with offspring. Spread his bloodline around. Yeah, he feared that his branch of the bloodline might not flow as it ought to.

Veax saw that breakfast was already laid out. He gave his wife a kiss.

"Good morning, my love. The food looks good as always."

Orna had already prepared some food for her husband. She knew he tended to get up early and work hard. She also knew that farming was dirty work, so she already had a bucket filled with warm water for him to wash his claws off in.
"It could come any time now" Caex said, taking her soft human hand in his clawed one. As always, he was careful not to cut her. It came with having claws.

Aura found Ryland inside the house. "There you are, lover! I was looking for you!"

Avera smiled and gave his hand a gentle squeeze. "I know but I just want to meet them so badly."

Ryland smiled and waved. "Hi there beautiful, I'd hug you but I'm need of a bath. What were you looking for me for?" He asked.

Nyx smiled, "strangely, I like to cook. Hermia would laugh if she heard that" just thinking if that made Nyx laugh herself, she shifted, starting to eat herself

Sasha watched Kos help. She smiled. She wanted to give him everything she could. "You're the best" she said, standing up

Hermia returned the kiss, "I always try my best with food"

Tran enjoyed his work, and by starting early, he could finish early to spend time with Orna. He cleaned up before entering the house, and changed clothes

"Just for that" Aura said, revealing some soap. "I'd like you to wash up and then I'd like to check you out a bit. But don't think this is an invitation to mate. We've done enough of that for now. You've been working hard and I want to make sure you aren't overdoing it, love."

Suddenly, the egg began to twitch a bit.
"You cook very well, dear. Even so, I was thinking we should help each other out more. I mean, I'm not one of those dracons who believes that a female's place is in the kitchen, and I'd like to pitch in around the house" Larek said.

Kos gave his wife a hug. "Nothing but the best for you, my dear. Speaking of which, how's that bed working out?" he was referencing the magical one his stepmother had enchanted.

"Other females try, you succeed" Veax said. He wasn't much for words, though.

"Nice to see that some males can learn" Orna told Tran, giving him a hug. "How's my alpha male bull dragon doing today?"

"You work hard enough as it is" Nyx said "cooking gives me something to do. I hate sitting around being idly, but I'll do anything for the little one."

Sasha hugged him back, "the bed is very nice, exceptionally so. But you're all I need" she said with a smile

Hermia smiled, sitting down, "cooking is my passion. And I love you, so I want it the best"

Tran chuckled, kissing her softly "good, my dear" he said "and what about you? Have you been up long?"

Avera caught the movement from the corner of her eye and bolted upright from her chair. "It moved!" She exclaimed happily. "Did you see that?!" She asked, looking to her mate.

Ryland jumped when he heard his sister shout but turned his attention back to Aura. "I'd like that, but I feel fine, I did much more work when I live with my father," Ryland said, giving Aura a reassuring smile.

"Do you mind if I feel your belly?" Larek asked. "You're still beautiful, Nyx, but it is a different kind of beauty" he added, not wanting to make her think she was fat.

"Aww. I'm glad to hear it. Thanks!" Expressing tender emotions was still something new for Kos, who was raised to be a taciturn, no-nonsense male. Kos broke the hug, but gave her a little pat on the back. "Maybe there's more we can do. I want you to be relaxed. Have you considered breathing exercises?"

"And I love your food, so it works out, much like how music is my passion. I can play you some in a few minutes, if you like" Veax explained.

"Keeping the place clean, and reading some letters from my brothers" Orna replied. "Larek and Nyx are laying soon, and Caex will have a hatchling any time now."
Caex ran over to the egg. "Oh, gods, this is it. We'll know soon enough. Just remember, we've got to let the child hatch himself. Or herself."

"I'm sure you're fine, but I want to be sure. Think of this is doing something for me, just to put my mind at ease" Aura explained. She had been reading sad love stories lately, including one with a pair of dinosaurs in which one of the mates died. It wasn't anything she had to worry about in reality, but it was still on her mind.

Avera knelt down by the basket and watched anxiously. "What if they can't get out of the egg?"

"Then we have to help" Caex explained "But that's only if it takes way too long. Two to three hours is normal."

Avera let out a soft and impatient noise. She could remember her mother telling stories about how she felt when the boys where about to hatch and how impatient she had been.

Nyx smiled, "it's you're child too, so of course" Nyx said with amusement.

"My mind normally distracts me from breathing exercises" Sasha said, "how about a walk?"

"I do enjoy your music" hermia said happily

Tran always forgot to keep in contact with his sisters, and normally it was them that wrote to him. "Oh yeah. I hope all is well"

Caex let out an impatient little roar, as if to tell the child to come out. He otherwise kept his cool, though.
Larek felt her belly, gently touching her soft flesh. "How soon do you think it will be?" he queried, wanting to known when she would lay.

"A walk sounds good" Kos said. "I'll get my clothes" he added, as he was still clad in a loincloth.

"Then I'll get my guitar and get started."

"All is well with Nyx and the others" Orna assured him. "So, I was wondering, do you have any plans to expand the farm? The last harvest has given us a lot of money to invest."

Ryland went to the bathroom and started filling the tub with warm water. "Sounds like the egg is hatching," He said to Aura

"Postpone the bath, we need to see this!" Aura replied, running downstairs, eager to see the hatching of her nephew. Or niece.

Nyx shrugged, shifting happily under his touch, "soon" she said, "any day, really"

Sasha smiled, "alright" she said, "go dress"

"Great" hermia said with a amile, standing and starting to clean up to breakfast diahes

tran thought for a mimute, "well, expnding is a good idea" he said
