Sleeping Worgen Chapter 9: Escape from Twilight
After a while of flying through stormy weather, the group have finally arrived at Deathwing's domain the Bastion of Twilight. When they got there, it was a gloomy and foreboding place where no one will dare enter. Looking upon the tower, its spooky tone sent shivers down Gobber's spine. They quietly made their way through the portal which was the entrance and found themselves in a strange chamber.
“Thornado you take Grump and Cloudjumper and find the other dragons i'll signal you when we found Prince leo, Hiccup and the others” said Stoick to the thunderdrum which nodded and the three dragons took off.
“Come on” whispered Celestia. Then they made their way cautiously. This is a pretty dangerous mission. If Deathwing knew they’re here, the three vikings and the Alicorns might go into a situation that they might have little chance to escape from. As they continue to make their way towards the passage, they suddenly spot a guard named Gaston up ahead coming towards them. But luckily the group hid so that Gaston had not seen them yet.
Luna looked up and heared something from one of the chambers. Celestia, Cadence and Luna hurried to a small prison cell inside they saw a man. "Please can you help me i've been a prisoner of Deathwing for 16 years can you help me escape?"
Luna Sensing that the man was not evil used her magic to open the cell door the stranger thanked them and told them his name was Eret son of Eret taking out a key he made Eret opened the cell next to him and freed a massive Rumblehorn dragon named Skullcrusher who saved Eret's life years ago.
With two new members to the rescue party the group hurried through the chambers to find Leo, Hiccup and the others. All of a sudden, they heard noises coming from inside; they hurried towards the balcony and saw more guards celebrating their master's triumph as the aspect of death was sitting on his throne, with Diablo with him.
“What a pity Prince Leo and the Dragon Riders can't be here to enjoy the celebration. Come Diablo, we must go to the dungeon and cheer them up” said Deathwing. Then he gets up and heads towards the dungeon.
"Let’s follow him. He can take us right to Leo and the kids” said Stoick.
Then they quietly followed Deathwing and his skrill down into the dungeon. When they got deeper, it got gloomy and darker than outside the castle before. Even Eret fluttered into a nasty cobweb. Soon, Deathwing approaches one door in the dungeon. He takes out a key, unlocks it, and enters.
Everyone then took a look through the barred door window and they see Leo, Hiccup and the others in there. Leo was sitting while his wrists were chained into the wall, and Hiccup’s wrists were chained directly to the wall and Astrid's Tuffnut and Ruffnut's Fishlegs and Snoutlout's legs were chained to the wall. As Deathwing walks towards them, Hiccup glares at him.
“You won’t get away with this, Deathwing! You will pay for crimes against Lorderon!” said Hiccup. But Deathwing only laughs at him.
“I would like to see you try, boy” said Deathwing. Then he approaches Leo and he looks up at him with a glare as well.
“Oh come now, nephew. Why so melancholy? A wondrous future lies before you. You, the destined hero of a charming fairy tale come true” said Deathwing. As Stoick, Valka, and the others, including the Alicorns, watch from the barred door window, Deathwing uses the orb of fire to depict the following.
“Behold, King Genn Greymane's Palace, and in yonder topmost tower, dreaming of her true love, the princess Aurorarose. But see the gracious whim of fate. Why, 'tis the self same peasant maid, who won the heart of our noble prince but yesterday. She is indeed most wondrous fair. though her apperance is of a wolf her beauty shines through like the pruest of Roses. In ageless sleep she finds repose. The years roll by, but a hundred years to a steadfast heart are but a day” depicted Deathwing.
In Deathwing's imagery, the prince is shown to be old, anything but what she's telling. Yet his voice drips with sarcasm.
“And now, the gates of the dungeon part, and the prince is free to go his way. Off he rides on his noble steed…a valiant figure, straight and tall, to wake his love with love's first kiss, and prove that true love conquers all” depicted Deathwing. Leo then angrily tries to get at him, but he only struggles in his chains. Then Deathwing evilly laughs. Then Luna start towards Deathwing in anger.
"You Evil..." She started but Stoick pulled her back as Diablo heard something looked outside through the barred window but he saw nothing.
“You Evil Monster! Hiccup's father will come for you, I swear on it!” said Astrid . But Deathwing only laughed more. “Come, Diablo. Let us leave our noble prince with these happy thoughts” said Deathwing to the skrill as he turned to Hiccup. When he’s at the door, he looks back at the prince and the dragon riders and said “A most gratifying day”. Then he exits and locks the dungeon cell door outside. “For the first time in sixteen years I shall sleep well” said Deathwing. Then as he walks away, Diablo looks back with a suspicious look on its face.
Unknown to Deathwing, the Alicorns watched him walking upstairs and went inside the dungeon, changing back to their regular size opening the door Stoick, Valka, Gobber and Eret entered. Leo looked startled as Celestia hushed him, "No time to explain." Celestia and Luna used their magic, breaking the shackles as Eret stood guard while Stoick freed Hiccup and the others as Leo was now free from his shackles "alright let's go befroe we are seen Stoick said and the group began to escape, but Cadence stopped him.
"Wait, Prince Leo, the rode to true love maybe barred, but still many more dangers, which you alone will have to face," said Cadence, "and Hiccup your destiny that was promised to you and your family will be fulfilled if you alone help your Friends" Celestia added.
"So arm thy selves with the enchanted shields of Virtue and Valor," Luna used her magic, making a pair of shields for Leo and Hiccup, "And the mighty Swords of truth and Justice," Luna's magic hit both of their hands, appearing each with a sword, "For these weapons of righteousness will to two of you triumph over evil.
"And we shall help you also" Astrid said but snoutlout was about to say something stupid but Astrid elbowed him to tell him to shut it.
Now come, we must hurry." The group hurried out of the dungeon and headed for the stars. Suddenly, they Ran into Diablo! The Skrill roared as he flew back up a stairway, Alerting the guards.
"This way everyone," said Leo as they ran to another path. As they ran up the stairs, they saw the guards, following Diablo. They ran back down, to another Chamber as Leo, Hiccup and his Father began to fight back against the guards. the group hurried to the entrance as Stoick whistled for Thornado as the Thunderdrum roared to let Stoick find him.
"Stop them!" Drago snapped. Toothless seeing what was happening roared to warn the group as several ogres threw massive rocks towards them.
"Everyone watch out!" Fishlegs cried as Celestia shot her magic and turned the boulders into bubbles. The villains began to shoot arrows at group, until Thornado roared out a supersonic blast, Scattering the arrows meanwhille Cadence and Cloudjumper worked on the chains, freeing the Dragons and Lionheart.
Leo hopped on Lionheart whille Hiccup, Stoick, Valka, Gobber Eret and the other dragons riders got onto their dragons and headed for the exit. The guards in a last ditch attempt poured hot water down at over the exit, but Celestia cooled the water to allow them through. Diablo in alarm flew toward's Deathwing's chambers to warn him As the group followed Leo, Cadence looked back, glaring at Diablo.
"That's it i'm ending this handbag!" Cadence said annoyed and fired a beam at him, but he avoided it.
Diablo dodged the attack and he flew away.
"You want to play tag, huh? Well, let's play," Cadence flew after the skrill. Cadence continued to use her magic but however the dragon was too fast. Cadence went to the other side, getting ready to pounce. As the dragon flew to warn Deathwing, he roared when he saw Cadence, fireing an ice spell at him. Diablo became frozen solid as Cadence flew back to the group.
"Silence!" Deathwing snapped, and saw Diablo, "Diablo, tell those fools to…" Deathwing gasped to see that his dragon was frozen, "What...No!" he saw Leo riding Lionheart with the Dragon riders flying through the portal to Lordeon Palace with the Alicorns following them. Leo and Hiccup saw up ahead massive hims were growing up ahead as the group was heading towards them. Tuffnut and Ruffnut helped with Barf and Belch buring the vines making a hole to go through and they made it. Deathwing hurried to the entrance of the tower, watching them.
"Hurry, hurry everyone!" Celestia yelled, seeing Deathwing. The dragon aspect began to shoot dark lightning through the sky as a lighting bolt nearly hits Astrid, but Hiccup protected her with his shield. Deathwing shot another one at the group aimed at Stoick, but Cloudjumper intercepted to bolt with a fireblast as they flew over the Wetlands. They're almost there to the Palace!
"A forest of throns shall be thy tomb. Born through the skies on a fog of doom! Now go with thy curse and serve the well! Round Greaymane's castle cast thy spell!" Deathwing ordered. The black clouds gathered around the palace, striking lightning. The lightning struck the path and masses of throns grew, blocking the group. Lionheart and the dragons stopped as they landed a few inches from the thorns Deathwing laughed evilly that the group can't get through. Fishlegs, Meatlug, Gobber, Grump. Astrid, Stormfly Eret, Skullcrusher, Snotlout and Hookfang burned through the thick thorns as Leo and Hiccup began to slice through the weaker thorns with their swords as Lionheart, Toothless and the others proceeded while above them Celestia pointed out the path, while Leo and the others at last saw the palace rode to the path.
Deathwing saw in shock of what was happening, "No! It cannot be!" Deathwing using his magic flew to the Kingdom of Lorderon where he appeared in front of Leo and the others; he had enough, "Now shall you deal with me, young prince and all the powers from Hell!" Deathwing unleashed his full power of his magic, laughing evilly as he began to change. The group watched in shock of what Deathwing had become for Deathwing transformed into a monsterous Dragon!
Seeing what was before them Leo turned to Hiccup "Are you with me?" he asked "To the very end" Hiccup replied then Leo signaled Lionheart to go as Toothless and Hiccup took to the sky and the two charged towards Deathwing. Luna is going to attack was, but Stoick grabbed her. Suddenly, as the two friends flew in Deathwing shot fire at them, knocking Leo off of Lionheart. Deathwing shot another one, destroying the bridge then Deathwing shot another fireball at Toothess as Hiccup used the shield to protect himself and Toothless as they flew down to help Leo.
Leo and Hiccup hid behind some of the thorns as Deathwing came close. Suddenly, Leo swinged his Sword at Deathwing's Face, which he roared in pain "Look over there it's Alexstraza!" Deathwing turned as Hiccup swinged his Sword at Deathwing's Face, which he roared in pain again. Deathwing got ticked and snapped his jaws to attack the duo. He then shot a powerful stream of fire, burning the thorn. Leo and Hiccup were blocked by the flmes, thinking that this is the end.
"Up, up this way!" Cadence shouted, while Leo and hiccup got on Toothless and Lionheart they flew upwards from the fire. But Deathwing saw them and began to attack them as Leo and Hiccup swung their swords in defense. Deathwing continued to attack the two, walking at the ledge of the cliff. The other dragons riders and the Alicorns watched in horror when Leo and Hiccup were trapped until Deathwing shoots another stream of fire, blasting the shields away from them. Deathwing laughed evilly as he was close to victory and prepared to destroy Leo and Hiccup.
"Now Swords of Truth and Justice fly swift and shure let evil die of good endure!"Celestia said as she and the Alicorns casted the spell. Deathwing lunged for the kill, but suddenly, Leo and Hiccup threw the Swords right at Deathwing's heart! The Aspect of Death screamed in pain as his lava blood flowed out of him. Deathwing in a last ditch attempt fell towards Leo and Hiccup, trapping them, Lionheart and Toothless in his claw. The rocks began to crumble as they fell to the ground, bringing Deathwing to his death. Stoick, Valka, Cadence, Luna and the other Dragon Riders watched in shock as Deathwing took the two friends with him and when the dust settled they saw the swords and Deathwing's broken body.....
