Jungle green richly covers this green's small form, like lush forest enveloping open land. Coloration fades and darkens haphazardly over her narrow back, light and shadows dancing in circles around her serpentine neck, and feathering her slender sides and limbs. Teal foliage builds up, spreading along the line of her stomach, lining the inside areas of her limbs, and casting a few stray tendrils around to the top of her tail. Broad wings stretch in either direction, paler sails striped by jungle-hued spars, divided by forest green ridges as they make their way evenly down her back, same smooth hue all the way from the top of her head to the tip of her lean tail. Her long narrow muzzle is speckled with lighter hues, like a mist settled over her face, around large, faceted eyes.
Egg Name and Description
Be Like the Bluebird Egg
Ocean's blue sweeps around the bottom half of the egg, deep navy blue rippled with hints of turquoise green here and there. The top half of the egg is a lighter sky blue, free of clouds, the same even color. A large white splotch sits on the midline, like a ship at sea, speckled with dark grey portholes along the edge. Yet, the ‘ship’ itself appears blurred, as if all it not what it appears.
Be Like the Bluebird Egg can withstand it no more, and the cracks collapse like an elaborate ruse, the last pieces falling away before they can be snatched back up to save face. And, as the pieces fall, a dark green hatchling is revealed.
Dark hues sweep into your mind in a hurry, like a powerful autumn storm blown up out of the blue, while your senses are filled with the crisp smells of Fall. « Anvi. This is a good day. I have found you, and you have found me. You have found your Narath. » A bright yellow filters into her mind. « May we eat? »
"Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections."
Your Narath is a rather 'simple' dragon - and it's reflected in her actions and her mind. Yet, 'simple' hardly means stupid, instead she is content with the little things, and generally doesn't let anything get her down for any length of time.
As a weyrling, she'll be interested with her surroundings, questioning you about them. « Why is the water so big? », may be one of her questions the first time you go together to the beach. She's satisfied with just about any answer, though it isn't likely she'll remember the specifics for very long in the end anyway. Of course, its also quite likely that she will ask similar questions each time something happens.
"My aunt Marian was right, but I forgot what she said." -'Peanuts'
While she's growing up, she'll be a bit of a handful for Anvi. While she's not a trouble maker, or overly chaotic, she is rather well lazy. While the other weyrlings are out practicing drills, she'd much rather be curled up on her couch, or in some warm sunny spot, sleeping the day away. Unless, of course, its time to eat. Or time to be oiled. « Anvi, my back itches. Won't you come and scratch it for me? » She'll be a lot of dragon to get moving, get motivated, and stay active. Besides, what bad can happen when you're sleeping the day away?
"An object at rest stays at rest, unless acted upon by an external force." -Newton's 1st Law of Motion
Once the ability to fly is awarded to her, she'll be more willing to move around, and take part in things, without constant prodding from you. She'll be awkward at first, but even when she lands poorly, she'll be cheerful and perky. « Anvi! I flew! Did you see me? » For her, it's about the experience rather then the outcome, and if anything is remembered, it is that. She will adore flying, though, and will try and convince you to go places once you have clearance. « But, they have new flavorings in Boll, can't we go to Boll? »
"I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things" -Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Mating flights with Narath will be almost as easy as they come. Over the course of a day, her color will lighten, seeming brighter no matter the light. She'll generally forgo blooding, instead waking up, her mind a spattering of fiery hues, before she takes off for the sky, taking advantage of her love of flight, and her small frame. She's not much for flips and loops, instead preferring steep climbs and steeper dives, and sharp turns. Yet, unlike some greens who merely want to escape from the males looking at them 'that way', she's looking to have fun, to lead them all on a merry chase, no matter the inevitable outcome. Yet, she's not going to let the flight outcome effect her every day life - one catch doesn't mean you get to attach yourself for good, nope!
"Optimist: Day-dreamer more elegantly spelled" -Mark Twain
Why Anvi? She is orderly and structured, and it is what Narath needed in a lifemate. She needed someone who would give her a push, and keep her going, someone else who was optimistic, cheerful, and doesn't let life get her down. She needed an equal.
Deep navies and maroons, along with the occasional forest green, sweep together to form the backdrop to her mind, the colors circling and mixing, without ever truly blending. Yet, when her emotions run high, brighter colors will zip through her mind. Excitement yields bright yellow, while anger and fear a fiery orange. The colors will brighten particularly when it nears time for her to rise, and if you are observant, you will likely notice it after the surprise of the first time. Her mind is made up of the soft, cool sounds and smells of a forest in autumn - the gentle crunching of leaves, wind rustling through the branches, an occasional echo of a bird's chirp, the earthy smell after a fall rain, and the crisp autumn air. Yet, despite the seeming harmlessness of her mind, it feels obvious that there is a looming power behind it, like a snow storm waiting to strand the unaware.
"Its always darkest right before they turn the lights on." - Moonface Martin, Anything Goes
The theme for eggs this clutch was 'musicals, and so Be Like the Bluebird Egg is based off of Cole Porter's musical 'Anything Goes', in particular, the song of the same title 'Be Like the Bluebird' which is sung by Moonface Martin. Anything Goes features a mishmash of characters, who are put through a variety of compromising situations. One of the main characters is Moonface Martin, Public Enemy #13, who has stolen away on board the cruise ship to London dressed as a reverend.
"Be like the bluebird who never is blue,
For he knows from his upbringing what singing can do,
And though by other birdies in the boughs,
He may be told that his efforts are perfectly lousy,
He sings on and on till his troubles are through,
"Tweet tweet, tra-la, tra-la, tra-la."
Your Narath is also based loosely on this song, but particularly on the ideals that it conveys, and her name is based off the Greek name 'Nara' meaning happy. I tried to stick to what you had asked for, and I hope you like her.
