*stirs from a deep sleep, wrapped snug in the bison skin in Temeraire's harness*

*feels light breeze and warm sun on face*

*slowly opens eyes...and sees Mount Axis for the first time, glowing gold and faint purple in the setting sun*

*blinks*

*rubs face and blinks again...and finally finds voice*

That...that's it. That's it!

*off everyone's puzzled silence, pointing frantically*

My...my paintings. Drawings. I mean...sketches. In the cell. Hundreds of them. Of that.

I must have drawn it a hundred times...I thought I made it up. I thought it wasn't real.

*stares at it, beyond words*

*points excitedly*

Oh, look! There's the stables, where we met our furry friend who gave us the tickets!

*thoughtful pause*

Seems like the biggest patch of bare land on the whole mountain...do you think we could land there?

Oh, I can land there, certainly, but...

*glances at Smauglock chasing off the raptors*

... well, I think it will do. I don't fancy trying to put down on a sheer mountain slope.

It would certainly save us a bit of walking, not having to hike all the way up from the base.

*still remembers poor sore hobbit feet from our first visit here*

I suppose we could always land in the courtyard in front of the Temple...but with two massive dragons, and without being summoned there first by the Oracle...I'm afraid it might rather send the wrong message.

Yes, that is true. I suppose we shall...

*glances at Smauglock again*

*heaves a big, rumbling sigh*

... just have to do our best.

*glides down toward the stables* (http://small-things.livejournal.com/15345.html)

*sees several small somethings approaching...the nesting raptor-lizards who bedeviled Sybil, Bilbo, Loki, Martin and Molly on their first visit to the Mountain, flapping and hissing angrily*

*HMPH*

*PLEBS*

*breathes a gout of fire at them*

*watches them retreat with a satisfied smirk*

*nodding sagely*

You must be touched with The Sight, my boy. Perhaps one of your relations was a Seer?

Shape! What is wrong with you?

You seem off-colour.

I am the colour International Klein Blue. Call me Hugh.

You Shapes come in such a confusing variety of size, structure, and spatial orientations!

But that is the only way in which we differ. And we are not very different from our neighbours. And we all come from the same place.
