Renathan had kinda decided a long while back that it was probably a good idea to come in and do these things as early as possible, so he wasn't all that surprised when he and Auburn were first up. She'd done this twice, he'd done this several times since he really enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere of contests, so they were both really relaxed as Renathan strolled, complete with a new pale blue and silver waist sash and shoulder sash with a snowflake pattern on them and silver bells for the occasion, out onto the contest ring. Once he got in the middle of it, he had to make sure that all of this was done exactly how they were planning. "Good day everybody! I hope your holidays have went well!" Renathan called out, holding Auburn out on his arm. She balanced delicately. "We're here to help celebrate the Winter Solstice with a pretty cool display!" Oh, punny. Renathan may not have found it all the funny, but it had more to do with the crowd. "I hope Auburn and I can break the ice for the rest of the competition!" He said, hoping to illicit another chuckle or two from the crowd if they were lucky.
[Female Polar Bear Orbaru please!] - [Note Auburn's Natural Abilities/Moves, but Auburn doesn't do anything quite yet]
Now that they were properly announced, it was time to really put on the ritz. Renathan did not plan on making this a long affair, Auburn was already a common sight here- but it was the last one he planned to put her in... That had to be special. "Auburn, let's show them how made for the winter you are!" She really did typify a wintry creature, what with her thick fur, cold resistance, and ability to hibernate. Renathan gave Auburn the command to fly, so that she would get up in the air, and then it was time to start getting chilly in here! "Auburn, Comeit!" Renathan calls out, and immediately a powdery, diamond-sparkling poof of snow dropped beneath her wings, spreading beneath across the stage under her wingbeats. At this, he gave her the command for breath of winter and then specified blue; but then tossed a blue yarn ball up in the air. Auburn eyes the blue ball, and then blasts it with cold.
 - [Auburn uses Powder Snow, and Breath of Winter]
The ball of yarn quickly drops, and Renathan calls out the command for 'catch' and specified 'blue' so that it would not completely drop. Auburn was completely quick at it, since she had been doing this for a long time and trained for it a long time ago. Now, it was time for the last thing. Of course, he was sure that the crowd could easily tell that she was fluffy enough that the coolness that was on the yarn ball now wasn't even remotely bothering her, and of course she was quite impressive. There was no need to actually try to overdo it this time, the crowd had seen the lovely Auburn multiple times before. "Alright, Auburn!" Renathan thought, and then crossed his fingers that she would pull one more thing... Auburn flapped her wings again, to clear the air, and Renathan realized that because they were so close loyalty-wise, she'd done exactly what he'd wanted... The air was suddenly super clear and clean, it was noticeably different!
"I hope y'all have a nice and warm winter! Cuddle up with a good book, and a warm critter this year!" Renathan said, carrying Auburn out as soon as she landed on his shoulder. No need to overdo it today, Renathan. Auburn was happy, either way.
 - [Auburn uses Clarity: This is the only moved used not on command but it is in her base stats.]
Ashe watched the display that went before him, and felt a little out of place. That wasn't a normal feeling for him, but during the wintery seasons, he found he felt this more often. Pretty, shimmery, white; cold, quiet, still. These weren't Ashe qualities. Well, maybe the pretty... He ran a hand through his dark hair, brushing it back from his face. Showtime, it was their turn to face the crowd. He walked out with Ivalice, bidding Inyala to hang back at the entrance to the ring. She did so, but not without a scowl of distaste. She stayed near the entrance, so she could watch Ashe closely. They were maybe twenty, thirty feet away from each other and Ashe could feel the distance. He'd make this quick.
Ivalice walked quietly, even though she was surrounded by strangers. Thankfully, she was one of his more chill hens, content to laze around with the other ladies and raise some hatchlings, rather than fight with the big boys. The sisters- Tiamat, Bali, and Nova - were the rough and tumble of the group.
When they got to the center of the ring, Ashe took a moment to tell the crowd about how it wasn't just dazzling lights that made winter what it was, but also keeping warm. And for this, he went to her tail to demonstrate. He brought out a brush and went behind the Sarane, lifting the fluff. He cradled it in his lap and brought the brush across the soft fur once, twice. He tugged at any mats, of which there were maybe a couple if that, and smoothed out the frizz. "This will keep you warm on a cold, crisp night!" He told the crowd, letting the tail go when he was done.
If I had a heart, I could love you, If I had a voice, I would sing. After the night when I wake up, I'll see what tomorrow brings.
While she could have watched the performances of her competitors to see how well they did and how the crowd responded to it, she didn’t do it this time. Instead she was busy making the final touches of Saar’s appearance be perfect, and that required brushing. A lot of brushing when one considers just how large he naturally is. She’s just glad that he didn’t seem to mind much that he needs to stay in one spot, get the occasional treat, and have his skin rubbed clean and dust free. That he seems to wobble with his mouth in a rather peculiar manner when she reaches any of the spots she hadn’t known he might have had a itch made it a funny sight at times, but when she finally deemed it done, almost all of the other contenders were done already with their performance. ‘I’d best hurry, and try something on the fly or something.’ Unlike at Vai-Min-Mur she doesn’t really have much of a plan on how to show case his natural talent with ice -as he has little in the ways of light, but sometimes doing your best is all one can do in the end. “C’mon Saar, its our turn now.” She murmurs to him as she packed away the brush in her backpack and lifted it up to her shoulders again. In her other hand she holds on the chain leading to his collar, the clinking of the chain links more ominous then really melodious considering how large he is as well.

Hopefully she won’t have points docked off in her presentation for how intimidating he might look. Grabbing another carrot treat from her pocket, and catching his attention even more as he had strayed his gaze off of her for a second, she gets him to walk behind her more easily as they enter the show ring when the one from before has left just a minute ago. “Hello all!” She says cheerfully as she leads Saar to the center of the ring, grinning broadly as she bows to both the judges and crowd, the snuffing of Saar sounds almost loud in her ears as she shoves his nose close to her jeans, right to the pocket where she has stored the treats for him. She raises up from her bow as she with a careful gesture pushes his head a little away from her. “I’m Twilight and I’d like to present to you all Saar the Thundrace halfbreed!” She steps to the side, and takes one step back so that the crowd can more easily see Saar’s head looking first at her and then the crowd with a perplexed look on what is going on. “One of his parent’s is a Thundergug so you might have seen the resemblance to it already despites the rather small head plating he carries on his head.” Very small compared to a normal Thundergug really. Petting him at the neck, and giving him a small treat for staying in one spot so well, even with the crowd starting to distract him. She takes off her backpack a moment later, opening the largest zipper to take out a very thick stick almost the same length as her backpack, mentally crossing her fingers together for this to work she walks up closer to his head again. “I don’t know enough of the other parent’s race to be able to say much about them, but I do think he has inherited his rather frosty bite from that lineage. Let’s see if he is willing to show us what I mean!” She calls out cheerfully as she presents the stick to him in one hand -holding it at the farthest end possible, and presenting it close to his mouth, and with the other rubs under his chin. She isn’t really certain if this work as she never tried training him this, but she knows he is capable of performing it. Or should be.

Saar snorts a little as he smells at the stick, leaning his head just a bit more in her hand as she seems to have come across a spot he rather likes getting scratched at while closing his eyes in contentment. Pressing the stick closer to his lips makes him slowly open them again as he stares at the stick and feels it pressing in to his mouth. Making him move his mouth away from the stick just makes it that she moves the stick with him, making it into a point by stopping with her scratching motion as he seems to like it a little too much to pay more attention to what she hopes he could do for her. Finally, after he lets out an annoyed huff and the stick is still pressing against his mouth, he bites down hard on it. Cracking the stick into two pieces and letting go, one piece falls on the ground, and she allows him to look away as she raises the part of the stick she had held on too. Its end part, torn, but covered in a layer of frost.
“Ladies and Gentleman, Saar’s rather frosty bite attack.” She smiles at it, glad that it worked. “And while I can’t really show how well suited he is for the cold, his skin is tough and durable enough to withstand most cold elements except those of the extreme.” Petting Saar on the head for a job well done, she gains more interest from him when she presents him with a couple treats that he is quick to gobble up. Packing up the remains of the stick she used in her backpack, and placing the bag on her back once more, shoulder straps not even needing to be arranged to fit smoothly against her shoulders she waves at the crowd. “Well, this was it for now. Enjoy the cold and snow we have this season!” Waving a final time at the crowd and judges instead of bowing, she tugs on the chain of Saar, slowly getting him to move with her as she starts heading out of the show ring. Giving him another treat when he follows after her, slow and steady.

The weather was cold, but the competition was heated, certainly. Some of the entrants had joined the competition a little late, but Fiera could hardly blame them- she hadn't wanted to join herself with the temperatures outside. Still, even with all these icy creatures, Henri could hopefully warm a few hearts. He was certainly the cutest creature here, at least in her opinion. His fur was brushed to perfect, and he was practically vibrating with excitement. She flounced out in her outfit of choice, a bright pink, fur-lined number, before holding her jolly bird up to the crowd.
"Behold! The floppiest cutie you'll ever meet, Henri!" She called, displaying how he had no fear of her at all before setting him down. He chirped every time she said his name, clearly excited to be here. "Say hello to the crowd, Henri! Speak!" He started chirping immediately, the beautiful song echoing through the contest hall. Then, she backed up away from him, holding a finger up. "Henri, stay there! Stay!" Henri stayed, true to her word, but his tail flicked eagerly as she retreated. Then, she squatted down and held out her arms. "Good boy! Now, come!" She said, and he was off like a rocket, launchign himself across the contest hall, chirping loudly. Finally, he slammed into her arms, cheeping. A few 'aw's murmured across the audience as if on cue. "Good job, Henri! It was a pleasure working with you!" She said affably, and then said "Shake!" quietly, holding out a hand. Henri offered his paw and they shook as if agreeing on a good business deal. The murmurs from the crowd only grew louder as she waved to the audience and walked off, a performance well done.
(Used Tolerance not on command, Name, Speak up, Stay, Come, Shake on command.) (Male please!)
