Prophecy: Fire burns black... fire burns bright... the world is at night... a fight...~~~~~ you: you are a MysticDragon She-roar, and you were born in the middle of a fight. The prophecy seems to have your name, Blackfire. You have fought in the war for twelve dragon years. The war happened because: the MysticDragons had very little territory. A small island made of stone and has only lizards to eat. Your young were dying of hunger and thirst, so you decided to strike war with the RainbowDragons, who lived on the main continent of Saroa, in the rainforest. You allied the IceDragons and the SeaDragons. The DesertDragons and FireDragons and LightDragons teamed up against you and also to take the rainforest. The NightDragons and WindDragons joined with the RainbowDragons. The EarthDragons and GoldDragons and IronDragons went against the FireDragons and others, while putting up resistance to the rest. The StarDragons and SunDragons and MoonDragons allied the SkyDragons and fought against the MysticDragons and with the IronDragons. The DiamondDragons stayed out of the war. Types and descriptions: MysticDragons; black scales and long thin snouts like a crocodile. They are thin and quick. Their wings are very lightweight, providing easy flight. They can see through walls and can look at objects using water. RainbowDragons; they are color shifting and live in a rainforest. They are fierce and strong, but not too smart. They tend to get fat but they throw up rainbows when they are scared. Their rainbow throw-up is not just gross, it is acidic and will sting you, without any further harm they make a get away. IceDragons; they are whitish bluish and can shoot tendrils of ice from their nose. They are cold to the touch and have jagged claws. They have spiked scales all over as to blend in. Their stare will make you freeze. SeaDragons: they are deep blue and great swimmers. They can breath underwater but with difficulty on land. Webbed claws make it hard to claw someone, but easier to swim. They can shoot boiling hot water up to five talons! They have giant tails that can make a tsunami. They have frills and powerful jaws to break clams. DeserDragons; they are a sandy color with a scorpian tail. They can shoot a small blaze of fire. Their scales can prick up like a porqupine, but much shorter and harder to pull off. They have large claw, to quickly hide themselves by digging under the sand. FireDragons; they are red orange and can hold a blaze for up to five minutes. Their fire is so hot it scalds the IronDragon's scales. LightDragons; they glow in the dark but in sunlight they are a pale white. They have three tails. The tips of their tales expose holes, where a white glowing goop shoots out. This goop is imposible to remove and will sollidify. NightDragons; they are black with white under bellies. They have silvery faces and can shoot sparkling black dust. This dust will eat away at anything alive, even putting the dragon that shot it at risk! WindDragons; they are pale grey with white underbellies. They can control wind and are wonderful fliers. They have massive wings and fans at the end of their tails. They can race a cheetah... and win! As long as they are in the sky. EarthDragons; they are brownish grayish and live in the swamp. They have strong scales and can hold their breath for an hour and a half, every hour they automatically come up to breath. (Continued on next result!)

Lazulikit woke up cold and wet. She shivered and said, "Enderstar?" Her father was greencough and the leader of Desertclan, so he was no help in response. "Diamondribbon?" She called her mother's name. This time, it happened. The silver she named Diamondribbon closed her blue eyes and pulled Lazulikit up. That was when she realized that she was sleeping just under ice in the water. Shadowkit. He had played a trick on her. Diamondribbon carried her into the leader's den, where she slept in a hole lined with ivy leaves and herbs. Abruptly, Enderstar screamed, "Sandstorm!" Diamondheart, not hearing Enderstar form the far corner, went hunting. "Mommy!" Lazulikit shrieked, along with her littermates Icekit, Splatterkit, and Badgerkit. The sand was getting to Enderstar. He coughed badly and fell asleep. Unfortunately, they never saw his eyes open again. They never felt a breath on their faces when they rubbed against his face. Time to face the wild. They all spread long for Starclan, aiming for a new life.
