Ambitious Malt Liquor Bronze Nakotath

A stocky form rests in knowing comfort of the sheer physical power that it contains, perhaps influenced more by its soft lines and gentle angles than larger-than-average size and intimidating figure. Smooth hide tanned to perfection stretches taut across the bulky mass of muscle and solid sinews, dipped in a fluid molten amber then forged flawlessly. The liquid amber of his hide bubbles up to a lighter honey baring vague resemblance to a Vintner's ale. Blunted limbs and tail make up for their lack of length with unusual breadth, still managing to leave this bronze with an unusual grace, fortified by a proud stance hinting at regal bearing. A long, ornate neck seems out of place with the rest of his diminutive shape, perched atop it an angular visage that gives sharp contrast to the fierce precision of his jaw.

Egg Name and Description

Foreshadowing Disastrous Seaside Egg
Lapis and sapphire fight a losing battle to the vicious onset of foreboding slate and charcoal, both clashing together, resulting in the pale, bubbly aquamarine of sea foam. The violence of the sea's battle is granted added brutality by a nearby sheet of ashen rock, jutting out in sharp protest to the war the tide wages around it. Still, there is comfort in the crumbling dun of the earth behind it, the mighty umber cliffside that stands as an authoritative, unwavering moderator. The comfort of a peaceful shore is not enough however, as the last traces of brilliant sunlight show signs of fatigue in glittering through the offensively swarthy clouds that fight it, threatening to put out that light altogether.

Hatching Message

It appears as though the battle on the surface of the Foreshadowing Disastrous Seaside Egg has been won. Whether lapis and sapphire side, or the slate and charcoal side were victorious isn't well determined, mainly because large cracks and crevices are appearing on the surface, separating whole pieces, resembling shifting islands. Finally, large and small shards alike fly every which way as the bronze hatchling within evidently grows tired of waiting, his form now fully revealed, standing where his egg -used- to be.

Impression Message




Once by the Pacific
Robert Lee Frost
The shattered water made a misty din.
Great waves looked over others coming in,
And thought of doing something to the shore
That water never did to land before.
The clouds were low and hairy in the skies,
Like locks blown forward in the gleam of eyes.
You could not tell, and yet it looked as if
The shore was lucky in being backed by cliff,
The cliff in being backed by continent;
It looked as if a night of dark intent
Was coming, and not only a night, an age.
Someone had better be prepared for rage.
There would be more than ocean-water broken
Before God's last *Put out the Light* was spoken.

Nakotath (nuh-coat-ith) is sort of a long shot, considering the name theme, but it's basically taken from North Dakota, where Gatsby, from Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby was born. I couldn't make a name I liked out of West Egg or New York. XD

Nakotath is, essentially, Jay Gatsby from Fitzgerald's definitive novel of life in the Jazz Age, The Great Gatsby. His desc is supposed to resemble a traditional malt liquor because Gatsby made much of his fortune by being a bootlegger. To avoid giving spoilers in case you haven't read the book, I suggest you do, or at the very least check out the link on the left. ^_^

"He had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced — or seemed to face — the whole external world for an instant and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey."
— Nick Carraway, The Great Gatsby

The theme for this hatching was American Poetry for the eggs, and the theme for the dragons was 'Characters in Books You Have to Read in American Lit Class.' Nakotath was especially a delight to write, The Great Gatsby being my favorite my favorite book and all. ;) I hope you find Nakotath well-suited to T'ji and enjoy him.
