*hauling ass in an ATV full of guards, all of whom are absolutely bristling with weapons...apparently getting the hell out of dodge before we all end up as a dragon chew-toy*

*spots your group and pulls up, guards pointing weapons everywhere*

Well well well. Look what we have here...

*eyes you each in turn*

Oliver! Our own little Pinocchio. I should have killed you slower...ah well, there's always next time. And the Winchester brothers, named after a gun...*pitying look*...compensating for something, are we? And let's see...a squeaky little lab mouse; a munchkin; a carrot wearing a hat; a little boy in his Daddy's clothes; some dozy bird who's clearly just escaped from a cut-rate Ren Fair; a sulky goth with Daddy issues; an ex-army quack who can't keep his nose out of other peoples' business; and a big lizard out of his pen.

*clucks tongue*

How pathetic. It seems almost unsporting to kill such an underwhelming group of losers and wannabes, so I'll tell you what...

Hand over the freak, and no one gets hurt.

...Much.

*oily grin*

*growls loudly and shakes out ruff*

I would advise you against this course of action, sir.

*growls again but adopts a posture of defeat*

*very quietly*

As if I would ever want to have an egg with someone like you...

*sees everyone in harm's way, all because of me...again*

*clenches fists and chokes back angry tears*

*leaves your side and walks unsteadily towards Noxs*

*reaches out and gently picks you up*

No, you're on my crew now.

*deposits you beneath still outstretched wing, out of harm's way*

*very tired sobs*

No! No one else...no one else is getting hurt because of me...not today, or tomorrow, or ever again.

Please. Please let me do this.

*gets hold of self...very quietly, next to your ear*

Keep everyone well back. Trust me. Please.

*louder, where Noxs and the guards can hear*

He wants his favourite chew-toy back; let him have me!

*hums softly and lets you go*

*curls tail around the rest of the gang and hunkers down, playing at being frightened of what's going to happen next*

*gently pats your flank*

*strides towards Noxs and the guards, as steadily as possible...keeping eyes to the ground until half the distance to the ATV has been closed*

*watches you with interest over Temeraire's tail*

What is he going to do, do you think?

*quietly*

Who? Archie or Noxs?

*equally quiet*

Either? Both? I don't know these people.

A-a-and you think I do? We only just met Archie and the first thing he did was disintegrate into pure time energy or something. He tried to explain, but I didn't really understand.

*looks down at the two of you sternly*

Quiet, please.

*slowly gets it*

Oh...oh, my...

*hunkers down behind Temeraire's tail*

I suggest, dear boy, that you find something sturdy to hang onto...and sharpish.

*looks up*

*eyes full of bright light - swirling, like a birthing nebula - and dark intent*

* with frightening speed:

- dissolves into a vortex, sleeker and more intense than you saw in the cave - a huge difference when it's being done on purpose rather than by force - with howling winds and shrieking lightning and clouds of darkness within

- sucks Noxs and his guards neatly through the gap - zip-zip-zip-zip-zip-zip-zip! - leaving the ATV completely untouched

- resumes human form, still standing upright...albeit without clothes...and not for very long

*lets out a satisfied breath*

*collapses*
