*waddles over to a sheer cliff face and looks over the edge*

*perfect*

*LEAPS*

*PLUMMETS towards the bottom...but spreads wings at the last possible moment*

*FWOOF*!!!

*screaming like a mad spider at a blissed-out rodeo*

WHOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOhahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

*lets go with all eight legs, tethered to Sherlock only by own silk cord...and SLAMS down onto his back as he arcs upwards*

Oh, darlings, this is more fun than paraseiling down the Abyss!!!

Oh, darling, are you going to be sick? Here, pinch your nose - it's supposed to help.

*squeals in delight as Sherlock does a loop-de-loop*

YippeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

Oh! Oh! Sherlock! Do be careful!

Quite right, captain.

*to Smauglock*

Sherlock! Come along, now. You are being worse than Iskierka.

*looks over the side*

Oh, you have GOT to be kidding me!

*at least two packs of flying raptors - different marking from the others we've seen, and more organized; these seem to be hunting in packs like wolves, using teamwork to bring down larger prey - are coming up behind us and flanking us from either side*

I thought you lot ate all of those f*cking things!

Oh, dear! Oh, dear!

*snaps at one who gets too close, missing by inches*

Madam, I will have you know that I am much larger than you! Also I have eaten several of your compatriots. It would be wise for you to break off your attack!

*receives a dive-bombing reminiscent of crows driving an eagle away from their nests*

Ouch!

*deep breath*

Well, at least we can make it a job they won't like.

Stupefy! Rictusempra! Stupefy! Stupefy! Oublitetum! Stupefy!

Oh my dear man! I am so sorry! Are you quite alright?? Speak to me!

*almost gets knocked out of the harness, but still seems to be conscious - the spell must work differently on synths*

Christ! Be careful with that thing! It's a good job I'm stupid already; otherwise I'd have been a goner.

Didn't anybody bring any weapons?? There were loads back at the prison, and no one thought to take anything???

I'm afraid my fighting skills are all in melee and hand-to-hand. They tend to be more useful in the situations I find myself in. This is only my second aerial battle, and the first time I was flying the plane while other people manned battle stations.

Martin, you've apparently had a colourful career for a commercial pilot -- do any useful experiences come to mind?

*trying very hard to to panic*

N-n-no. Nothing like this.

*hysterical giggle*

My copilot would probably be better suited to a aerial battle.

*idea!*

Temeraire! Can you do that roaring thing?

The Divine Wind? Yes, of course.

*releases the Divine Wind at the raptor-beasts*

*the deafening roar strikes the closest of them dead with the the concussive force, plummeting lifeless to the ground*

*those lucky enough to be farther away are knocked out of the sky, but recover, flying away erratically and chirruping to each other in fear*

*pauses brilliant game of raptor snooker (http://small-things.livejournal.com/14204.html?thread=568700#t568700) at your sudden roar*

*steers Sherlock back towards you*

Oh, darling, you did it! The Divine Huffing! And I wasn't even looking! Do it again?

*looks down at the ground*

Do you boys have enough snackies for the trip? Some good meat going freebies down there...

*watches as the dead raptors' dazed packmates creep up to sniff their fallen comrades...and then begin to eat them with great enthusiasm*

...or not. Well, that's a relief; I hate to see good food go to waste!

Well then. That was exciting! What's the next adventure you've got planned? Are we close to wherever you're going? I hope not; we're attracting such lovely danger so far!

*hearing no response - and seeing no other thrilling adventures presenting themselves in the immediate future - settles down for a lovely little nap on Sherlock's back*

Hello, darlings? Would all these big flappy things be enemies, then?

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Do whatever you can!

*draws flower spike and hovers menacingly over John and Archie*

Sherlock! These raptors are trying to eat John!

Bit close for comfort!

*ducks and covers as a raptor comes in for the kill - and [livejournal.com profile] missmollyhooper gets it in the eye with her flower-spike, sending it away howling*

...Nice one, Molly!

Righty-o, then, that's one vote for 'enemies'!

Anyone else? Do I hear a 'seconded'?

*frantically, as one especially nasty raptor zeroes in and opens its jaws wide*

Seconded! Yes! They're enemies! Now for the love of sweet f*cking mercy do something!!!

*squees!!! and skitters all eight legs in excitement*

*strokes Sherlock's flank and whispers something to him - which causes him to pause, like he can't quite remember what he was just doing, then turn and fly back towards the main melee*

*spins some more silk and attaches it firmly to Sherlock's middle*

Oh, goody! I haven't had a good game of conkers in ages!

*pulls silk cord tight - and LEAPS over the side like a bungee jumper*

WHEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.........!!!

*sails towards one of the raptors and SLAMS into it, knocking it for a loop*

*swerves around and WALLOPS another one, knocking it into two others that didn't see it coming*

Whoohoo!!! Raptor snooker!
