WOHOOOO!! SQUIRRELS! I hope there's more about that. By the way, is this new found addiction to flying going to lead to an obsession with storm crow form?

Yes, but I think lordmurray is creating a unique gryphon.

And it's too bad that I don't have Horse's knack for likeing that kind of stuff. Riding the Rock-N-Roller Coaster and the Tower of Terror definitely don't encourage me to ride the really big coasters, quite the opposite actually. The latter, though I didn't find it scary, was definitely not a pleasent ride and you won't probably see me on it again. As for the former ... well, it's definitely become the biggest coaster that I'll consider riding again. I know this is kind of getting off topic, so I'll just say I wish I had nerves of steel (or a lack of self-preservation Wink ).

Heheh, fun stuff. It was kind of a nice break to get something a little more lighthearted and easy to grasp. The Emerald Dream sequence was interesting...I hadn't expected to see it so soon, if that ever really was the Emerald Dream. It could just be a dream about it, but that would be kind of odd.

His "travel form" is likely just to be some kind of normal bird. M's was the standard raven/crow (I'll have to reread the chapter where she "dies" to be sure Wink ), but Tyrande the Younger's was an eagle, so it may be something more unique. I guess that leaves the door wide open...I mean, hell, who knows what Malfurion's is. It could be something ridiculous like a dragon. He is, afterall, a servant of the green dragonflight, which would also explain his apparent immortality sans moonwell water.

Anyway, nice chapter/partial chapter. Way to keep it fun.

I'd have to say that Malfurion's bird form is a crow like those that the druids of the talon were, just because in the game at least he's just a bigger version of the normal druids of the talon, with a little different skin set.

On another note, that hippo really goes against what I've been taught about hippos being noble and somewhat stuck up. He seemed freaking crazy, lazy and casual about life.

Gan - Tyrande would think it was strange, too, if she found out.

<3 squirrel form! I gotta at least work a reference to that into the story....

Malfurion got his form before the druids started diversifying. Pre-wow, there were Druids of the Blank, where Blank essentially limited what forms you could turn into. Then WoW came along and druids got bear, cat, running cat, and... sea lion?? So that's pretty much shot to hell. Now Horse has a form with hooves, and Tyrande turns into a golden eagle, et cetera. Old druids, though, ones that did most of their training pre-WoW, are pretty much stuck with storm crow as bird form. (if someone finds out that Furion changed into something else, speak now or forever hold my peace!)

/train is right, a lot has indeed changed in 700 years, although the hippogryphs are still fairly arogant and xenophobic. Tamilin is young and brash, and a great lover of life - he's also less xenophobic than average, in part because of his good friendship with Katy M. He's one of my favorite characters currently in the story - nothin gets him down.

Glad you guys are enjoying the light-hearted respite. It should last another week or two. after that... Twisted Evil

It's not canon by any means, but I always fancied the thought that Malfurion had a stag form. Heck, he has stag horns all the time anyway. Why not?

“Yeah,” I said, “there were squirrels. What are you doing here?” I stood and turning towards the magnificent beast.

Turning?

Turned maybe? [[[yup, thanks, fixed it - ed.]]]

But that is a very nice chapter Smile Lightheartedness indeed ftw Very Happy

I think Harry Potter (the second one) already did that. But, hey, everybody borrows in the literary world, right?
