sorry about the late update guys, I'll try to get my act together for the next one.
On a positive note, violence! poor random drunk guard.
If you're wondering why Drake pored the beer on him, it's because if someone finds him unresponsive and reeking of beer with no obvious injuries they're likely to write him off as passed out and not investigate further. Drake's job requires keeping a low profile while hunting down the leaders, so the extra time this could buy him is valuable. This is also why he's going up the was instead of through the halls. I don't know if you guys have ever been in a castle hallway, but they're freakishly tight and if he gets caught in there he'll have to fight his way through. The outside wall is far easier. Drake isn't all dumb, he just has a slightly limited scope to his intelligence, and most of it is focused around killing things.
You remember Drake's shape shifting weapon, right?
re sarall: aww, I'm killing off your look-alike aren't I? sorry about that, at least her horns are different.
re Azora: thanks, I've never written/drawn something like that so I was a bit nervous.
reButterscotch: aww, I'm sorry
re StellaFrost: We will get to see Brittany get some of her vengeance, but the flashback will be following Drake for the most part.
re Andera: you'll find out about the other dragons by the end of the flashback, and sadly, no, Brittany's fate is pretty set now.
re Onasaki: the past scene didn't mate me warm and tingly so much as really depressed :(
re Azhtann: true, better to let him know now, before he does anything stupid.
re Rae: yes, they were a couple when they were both in the training academy.
