a stand-in dragon (Rivalry Ellie drops on Drakenguard Fate)

Eliese has seen a lot of shit over her many years of service. One would think that retiring to a teaching position would cut down on that sort of thing, but alas, there is no idiot like a young idiot. She is among the most qualified of the staff to clean up the various messes, so when a giant mirror-head snake abruptly appears and starts causing a ruckus, she's the one to deal with it.

She was not expecting to get eaten in the course of so doing.

She was also not expecting to see something other than exploding snake guts after such a thing happened.

She suddenly finds herself in - a pretty normal valley, actually. One with a small waterfall spilling into a lake, that lets out into a slow river. There's a somewhat dubiously constructed wooden cabin perched between the lake and the grey cliff. She's on the other side of the lake from the cabin, with only a thin wooden bridge leading across it.

There's also a woman stepping out of the cabin - long white hair, white (and somewhat skimpy) dress that's cut on the sides, baring her thighs, and has a low neckline and a diamond cut out over her stomach. She has a white sword with a black edge strapped to her waist. And, notably, she has a flower in place of her right eye, and her left arm is made of metal. She pulls up short as soon as Eliese appears, her hand going to her sword's hilt. She doesn't say anything, though, just stares suspiciously.

Interesting fashion sense. And body mods.

"Hello there."

"Who the hell are you?"

"Eliese. And you?"

She crosses her arms. "Zero."

Permalink

"A pleasure to meet you, Zero. I don't suppose you've seen a large snake with a mirror-like face around anywhere, have you?"

Permalink

"No. Though I wouldn't put making that kind of abomination past my sisters. Why? You hunting one?"

Permalink

"One was the reason I appeared here so suddenly. Or so I assume."

Permalink

"It teleported you or something?"

Permalink

"Apparently so."

Permalink

"Then where are you from?"

Permalink

"The academy on Vulstix, most recently."

Permalink

"Don't recognize that name. Is Vulstix an island?"

Permalink

"It is a planet."

Permalink

"What the hell's a planet?"

Permalink

"A world that orbits a star. Typically spherical."

Permalink

"Like, in the sky?"

Eliese is rapidly reevaluating her opinion of how much of a backwater this is.

"Exactly."

Permalink

"Huh. Knew about other universes. Didn't know there were also a bunch of sky people."

Permalink

"Other universes?" she says, raising a brow.

Permalink

"Like whichever fucking one the dragons and Cathedral City came from."

Permalink

"I am not familiar with those."

Permalink

"Then you're lucky."

"Cathedral City's this massive city with weird ass buildings. The whole thing appeared overnight, like, a couple hundred years ago I guess? It was totally empty except for monsters - the dragons and wyverns are the only ones that left the city, but there's also these giant flying skeleton assholes and demons and shit still hanging around. People tried living there, found out it had magic, then they fucked around with the magic and the whole fucking place got depopulated, again. People were smart enough to stay the hell way after that - until recently when the Intoners set up shop."

"The dragons are people - obnoxious people, but they can talk - but I don't think any of the other monsters are."

"Interesting... And how do you know these are from other universes? The dragons?"
