Draconian Chronicles - WIPOk, this is my first time submitting any of my works on a site other than an rp forum, lol. I posted this particular piece on a forum before, and it started out well but I drifted waaaay to far from the origional purpose of the fanfiction, so I feel that I must rewrite it. This is a fanfiction of mine about the Dragonlance book series, ranging from (for those who have read the books) a few years before Chronicles, and up to the War of Souls. However, the events have been edited, characters added and removed, and one key thing changed - this is about the villains of the series, the sides of the story that you do not know about. Note that I will probably mess things up here and there - get names, dates, etc confused. I do that all the time, and apologize in advance to any die-hard dragonlance fans out there who see this . . . Also please note that this is more or less my first official attempt at writing my own story, so don't be too harsh on the poor Aurak . . .
Now without further adei
TR C3: JobThe Return
Chapter 3: Job
The next few days passed similarly, and I began to develop a routine. It took me a while to relearn how to walk, but within a few weeks, I could sprint, and even fly. I found that as I remembered, my wings only allowed for limited flying and gliding. I couldn’t fly for any extended period of time due to my wingspan and all that. The best I could do was just over an hour.
The other dragons looked upon this with slight astonishment, and my nonchalance to it with great astonishment.
It seemed inexplicable to them, that I shouldn’t be very bothered by it, since they were creatures of the sky, able to fly around for hours on end if they so desired. I, on the other hand, knew full well about my own restrictions due to my species, but that didn’t stop the others from shooting me concerned looks when I brushed the whole thing off.
I told them time and again that I was fine, and even had to take pains to assure them too. Although I could understand wh

Chapter 2: Tano’rath
I awoke to strange sensations….too many memories, and knowledge that I wasn’t supposed to have.
Too many limbs. Wings and tail going everywhere…why is my face so long?
My hands…had claws. My feet now had three toes with claws on them too. All the claws were white.
I was lying in a small room, I realised, as I looked round, my new scaly snout now a bit of a blur at the bottom periphery of my vision. Nothing much in the room. Walls of rock, the bed, a small bedside table, and a door off to one side, probably to a toilet.
I found myself feeling tired. As if I had just run a marathon twice, and then gone to the gym. It wasn’t a nice feeling, and I found myself lying back onto my side and drifting back to sleep.
I woke again soon after, the room now dim. I realised that there was a window. A rather large one….which I had somehow not noticed earlier. It seemed to be dusk outside.
I sat up again, groaning. I felt my new

Chapter 1: Uni
It was just another day. I woke up late. Had to run to class while eating a sandwich. Left the lecture halfway through to get a coffee.
Would have been less boring if my friend, Ivan had turned up, but he didn’t. Opting instead to sleep in. Given how dry the lecture was, I couldn’t say that I blamed him.
By the time the class actually ended, I was well on my way to La-La-Land. I only got up because someone knocked into me and had me realise what was going on.
Groggily, I peeled myself off the chair, and dragged myself out of the lecture hall, intent on going back to sleep for the break. I could have sworn that there was a pair of dragons tailing me, but I was too sleepy to really notice it properly.
I found myself back home in my room in relatively short order. I couldn’t be bothered to prepare my lunch for later, and instead, pulled down the blinds and switched the lights off, before flopping into my bed.
I fell asleep almost instantly, and

Chapter 82: The Last Stretch
As we approached, explosions from the artillery was already rocking the city, and black smoke was already billowing. However, Drak’rrth made no move to attack us. He seemed to want us to go to him. Or rather…since he never took his eyes off me, he wanted me…and not in one piece, no.
His stare sent shivers up and down my spine. It had me cursing and swearing as I drove, my discomfort evident, and its cause obvious.
As per our plan, we did the pincer manoeuvre, while part of the force charged the front gates, which were already rubble thanks in no small part to the excellent spotters we had for the artillery…and the prodigious amount of missiles that the chopper fired at it.
I yelled at Fenek to man the machine gun as the infantry charged. The defenders were…more numerous this time. They charged us with a wall of scales. Even with the machine guns, pushing towards the city was slow. They were definitely giving us a run
Resistance C81: CapitalResistance
Chapter 81: Capital
I spent most of my time either eating or checking equipment. By the time the mages from the wolves arrived, it was already early afternoon. From what I heard, the blue dragon, Nika, turned out to be really good at magic, and had been assigned to work with Flayme in my part of the force. We were ordered to attack the east flank, and link up with the wolf company there.
I ended up briefing the whole assembled mass of troops, and telling them explicitly that the wolves were not our enemies.
In the distance, the silhouette of Drak’rrth loomed above the city ramparts. I knew that we would have to face him sooner or later….and it wasn’t going to be cheap…or fast. I just ended up telling them, “Gentlemen and ladies, this is our last exercise together. We either win and elevate this world once again to modernity, or we lose and fade into obscurity. There is no fucking middle ground. Peace isn’t going to happen. We will b

Chapter 80: No surprise
As the night wore on, we kept driving. Radio transmission from the wolves came and went, but nothing much happened. We stopped at some point to sleep, and carried on the next day.
As we neared the capital, there was very obviously a large form hovering above it, and an equally large voice accompanying it.
“Fools! You dare challenge the authority of the Council? Even after we showed you generosity!” There was no mistaking it. It was our old friend Drak’rrth.
I heard a collective sharp intake of breath from the backseat as I remarked, “…this fucker again.”
The radio crackled. “Form up, proceed to staging ground as planned. Commanders to have meeting at location.”
I acknowledged as we continued on to stop at a flat plain outside the capital. Close enough to see the city, but out of range of anything they might want to throw at us.
I walked over to the gathered commanders, quite happily soaking in the
Resistance C79: Hot metalResistance
Chapter 79: Hot Metal
Flayme was dispatched under the cover of night to go and investigate the building, while the rest of us sat tight.
The mage cloaked himself and was on his way almost at once, telling us to proceed home first. However, it would be pointless to go back without any information, hence, we elected to stay.
We took turns to keep an eye on the door as the others slept, and the night went by mostly uneventfully. By morning, Flayme had returned, saying that he had found the building, but wasn’t able to enter, since it was very heavily guarded.
We left the city that evening after dinner, and flew back to camp.
While Flayme was helping the mapping division pinpoint the location of the building of interest, I spent a while talking to the rest of the command team, before being chased off to bed by Fenek, who knew all too well that I practically didn’t sleep a wink the night before.
Actually, chased off wasn’t quite the word for it. He dragged me ou
