HEY HERD NERDS!!! :D
I know I’ve promised Nightmist’s fanfiction in the past, and I’ve been trying to find the plot, but I just can’t do it :/
Any ideas would be SUPER helpful lol. So, if you guys have any creative ideas, please tell me! Here’s what I know I need for Nightmist’s character:
Nightmist has a LOT of horse blood within her, because her herd is descendants of a horse and a pegasus. Her wings are smaller, legs longer, and her running ability more accurate. She also falls in love with a stallion (regular horse) named Flare. I also know that her story takes place AFTER Nightwing, whereas my first O.C., Moondancer, takes place BEFORE Nightwing.
OMG.. DRAGoN. YOUR BRILLIANCE IS TERRIFYING SOMETIMES. NOW I FEEL BAD USING THAT IDEA BE AUSE WE’RE NOT OFFICIALLY COLLABORATING ON IT xd
Ah, a classic Romeo and Juliet story... just hopefully without the tragic ending.
But, in my opinion, if the herd Nightmist is in has a long history of adding horses into their bloodline, then it probably wouldn't make a lot of sense to have Nightmist's parents against her seeing Flare. However, if we're talking after Windborn, and I'm assuming you're wanting things to take place in Anok either during or after the ROTR series, one possible plotline would be that at one point there was vastly more mares then stallions in the herd, and horses began to be incorporated in so that there wasn't a huge amount of inbreeding. But again, this bit wouldn't make a large amount of sense because that doesn't seem to be that big of an issue when it comes to equine.
Another option would be, is there was a small herd of mares that managed to evade capture when Nightwing took the rest of Anok's population captive, and ended up fleeing somewhere like either the farest out reaches of Anok (i.e. deep into the hoofbeat mountains; one of the islands in Jungle Herd territory; some far out corner of the trap; somewhere further into the interior; etc.), and they have lived in fear there ever since, not knowing what happened at the end of Windborn. Then, because there were no stallions in the group, the leader(s) of this new herd, decided that it would be best for the mares to find mates with a local horse herd, and that's how horses entered the bloodline. But after several generations of this, there were more then enough stallions in the herd to make it so there was no need for the horses anymore, so the leader(s) outlawed it. But that's where Nightmist comes in a falls in love with Flare, and the rest... idk
I agree with Sunblaze
That could work... I’ll add that to my notes! Thanks! :D
Hmmmmm if you make it a romance type thing, both their parents forbid them for seeing each other?
