The tales of Gregolos Pandragon: the idiot king Wed Apr 4, 2012 3:15:51 PM#244934Perm Link
(a new story I am working on)
there is a dimension in which the medieval ages of England never ended. magic never disappeared and the land was full of creatures of all shapes and sizes. this is the story of the last king, his son now left to rule in his place. we tell this story because it has become, and will forever be a tradition to tell the story of our greatest king. he is known as the king of many names, for that was his quest, to make a name for himself. he is the king of harvest, the king of the elven domainion, the ruler of the end world, and many countless other names. but there is one name he was called long before all this, his first name, the name we dare not call him today.
"YOU IDIOT!" katagin screamed, she was the court wizard, although she was in all aspects a witch, and she was screaming at the king from outside the castle, now smoldering fro a firework explosion the king had set off.
"what? the Chinese should have labeled those things properly, giving me those things as a gift telling me to light them on fire, and forgetting to mention they had gunpowder in them, that is a recipe for disaster" gregolos said defensivly.
"FIREWORKS! FIREWORKS HAVE GUNPOWDER, THEY TOLD YOU WHAT THEY WHERE!" she screamed at him using her magic to fix the mess of a throne room. "well, what's done is done. anyway the throne room is now fixed, you can wait in there while I tell the kingdom that there was an attack on you or something, don't want word getting out that you are an idiot, the villiagers would go mad." she said walking away.
"thankyou Katygin, you are truely a good friend." he said.
"I just don't want to see you dragged through the streets by a horse because the people revolt." she said
"what is revolt agian? something bad right?" he asked.
"just go to the castle and wait." she said.
so he did, he went to the castle while katygin told the people of crystle that the king had been attacked by a rogue explosive engineer, but that the king had valiently faught him off with one hand burned by the attack.
Gregolos paced up and down in the throne room until night fall. as the last fire was extinguished outside in the hall and swooping shadow flew into the room, it landed next to his throne. "you called." the owl said.
"tomoculus, you came? I was half expecting you to disregard me." gregolos said.
"well, one with so much knowledge should always take his time to write it down in an empty book, so to speak." the owl said.
"right...wait, are you calling me an empty book?"
"it is as you say."
"then that means you are calling me an idiot!"
"not an idiot, just unlearned. now what is it you wanted to know? the location of a powerful weapon maybe? although your sword is the most powerful weapon known so I don't see the use in that, perhaps you want me to teach you the shoe tying song again." the owl said.
"no, I figured that one out, something about bunny ears or...anyway the point is that isn't why you are here." gregolos said getting impatient.
"then what, pray tell am I doing here at the vary early night?"
"I want the location of a dragon egg, I wish to hatch it and raise it as my own."
the owl looked upset at this request then got a wicked smile across his face. "oh sire, I have one right here with me." he said. "pour hot water over it, and you will have your dragon."he said laying the dragon egg on the floor and flying away.
"excellent." the king said then he summoned a guard "go get me some water, oh and wake katygin, I want her to ravel in my success. I shall be known hence forth as gregolos the dragon bringer, for bringing the dragon species back to life!" he said gloriously.
Katygin walks in a bit upset. "what is it, I am trying to get my beauty rest and...Gregolos what is that? she asks.
"so formal with your king." gregolos says.
"sorry, my lord." she said. "i meant to say, your lordship, what in the HELL IS THAT!"she screamed angered at the sight of the egg.
"why it is a dragon egg. I would have thought you would be glad." he says.
"that is no ordinary dragon, it is the worst dragon of all, a charlian dragon." she says as a guard brings the hot water to the king.
"pour it on the egg."
"DON'T!" but it is too late, the water hits the egg and it starts to crack. a derpy eyed dragon pops out with a face almost like a fish.
"oh...looks like it's broken." the king says.
"it isn't broken you idiot, the charlian dragon is the worst dragon because it is so stupid that it ruins everyones life that it comes into contact with, much like a perticular king." she screams.
"oh...wait, are you saying I ruined your life?" he says.
"no I'm just stating a fact about dragons." she said rolling her eyes. "magic can't kill it, so you have to...wait, your sword is magic so that won't do." she said "DAMN THIS MAGICAL KINGDOM, DOES NO ONE USE REGULAR WEAPONS ANYMORE!" she screamed.
"oh, the knights do. knights, kill that blubbering thingy." he said. and the knights attack but the dragon, being a total idiot, thinks the knights are playing and runs around in circles dodging the swords.
"what do we do now?" the king askes.
"well...you wanted a pet." she said.
"no way we need to kill that thing, I am not dealing with...with that!" he said as the dragon slobbered all over his boots. "great, those where made of real aligator. from egypt."
