LMM 351: Dragons of Yore

Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine. (Which means I should probably behave myself since anything I say or do could be taken as canon.) Indulge the lot of us, especially the ones who literally are dragons of yore.

351
Dragons of Yore

Ancient aggressions. Escalating retaliation. Tentative peace.

In short, peaceable dragons of yore had pacted with early reavers, teaching them the sigilcraft that meant holding their own against all Amaranthine. This unlocked the potential of remnant stones, leading to the creation of the Four Storms. Priceless artistry. Perilous weapons.

Plum Cascade.

Orchid Saddle.

Bamboo Stave.

Chrysanthemum Blaze.

“You taught humans how to kill you?” Jacques asked incredulously.

Lord Starsweep, the one with plummy hair and pale freckling, gently corrected, “We trusted them. Befriended them. And learned from them in turn.”

“We made peace,” said Lord Beckonthrall. “For our sake. And yours.”
