The Wiurn beat his wings again after she told him to fly and he took off from the ground. He was a little wobbly in the air but doing well, and while he was coasting over the ground, Jack still called it a win for herself and the Wiurn. Jack grinned at him and then chuckled when he crashed to the ground and tossed him a large fish, that was certainly worth it. She smiled at him and patted him on the head when he sulked over to her, she wasn't sure what to do with him at the same time, there was a lot more training they needed to do, but that was fine, they would get it all done eventually, right? She sighed a little and shook her head, she didn't know what to do. He was wobbly in the air, but all animals were wobbly in the air for awhile after learning to fly. It was the most graceful, but he would learn.
Jack eyed the Wiurn for a moment and then climbed into the saddle after he landed, still a bit ungracefully. She smiled a little bit as she settled into the saddle and then gave the command to fly, "Fly, Given!" Given pumped his wings and climbed into the sky as best as he could. He was a little uncertain with her on his back, but that worked. She pulled the reins up, "Higher!" He pumped his wings and climbed further into the sky to get away from the pressure under his chin. It was uncomfortable but she finally let up with it and they flew through the sky over the water, skimming it every now and then as time went on. She was pleased with his progress, and they climbed into the sky again when she put pressure under his chin, "Higher, Given!" He pumped harder and flew higher into the air to get away from the pressure, things were going well!
Flying on a Wiurn was a little thrilling, truth be told. He wasn't quite going as fast as he usually could, he was still getting used to it, but at least there was something to be said for his speed. He was about as fast in the air as Demon was on the ground, which was a good thing no matter what. Jack pulled up on the reins a little bit, "Higher, Given!" He climbed higher into the air to get away from the pressure, but he was also associating the word with the action already. Jack evened him out again and smiled, it was going to be great getting all of this done she figured, she couldn't wait to move on to more interesting things she thought. Jack pushed her hair back as it whipped around due to the wind, she wasn't sure what to do with things right now, but that was fine.
Giving him space for a moment to fly on his own, she smiled and lightly pulled up on the reins, "Higher Given!" She was thrilled with things so far, though she was going to have to work on his landing, something she wasn't looking forward to doing while she was on his back. Giving a little chuckle, she tried not to think of it as they climbed higher and higher still. She then leaned forward, pointing him down a little bit so they wouldn't be going too far into the sky so she couldn't breathe. She let up on the reins a bit and patted him on the neck as they flew, his powerful wings pumping in the air to keep them aloft. Everything was fine, he was getting it definitely, but she wasn't sure what to expect from him when things got a little too far. They were getting close to the end though.
Jack smiled at the back of the Wiurn's head for a moment and then simply told him without pulling on the reins, "Higher Given!" He expected the soft tug under his chin and moved up in the sky, but when nothing came, he stopped for a moment. Still though, she patted him on the neck with a smile on her face, even though he wouldn't be able to see it. "Good boy Given!" Things were looking up, quite literally it seemed, and she didn't know what else to do with him at the moment. Still, he had to get a little work done before he was fully ready to learn how to land, plus they had another trick to learn after a bit, barrel rolling was going to work out for them as well. She didn't know why she asked her Guild to train that, but it seemed interesting, right?
This was pretty fun at least, and Given was much faster than the Sarane she had flown on before, like Alexei. She smiled a little and cheered a little in the empty Docks as she flew on the Wiurn over the water, and then again gave him the command, gently pulling up on the reins, hoping to have him associate the action and the word at the same time, "Higher, Given!" The Wiurn quickly ramped up into the air some more and made it much better than he had been. She didn't know how much longer they were going to need to work on this for awhile and all that, and she hoped that it was going to work out no matter what. Jack smiled a little and shook her head as she rode on the Wiurn, at least she had plans for the future, though she wasn't sure what she was going to do with him yet.
Jack pushed her hair back a little and then eased up on the reins before giving the command, "Higher, Given!" The Wiurn climbed in the air again with a smirk on his face as he did so, he knew he was doing well, but he didn't know what else he was supposed to be doing, if anything at all at this point. Jack didn't know what he was looking like at the moment, but that was fine. They were soaring through the air, he was still a little wobbly, but he was getting better and better as time went on. Jack pushed him hard, and he flapped his wings and soared through the sky. She wished things would be a little easier, but then where would the fun be in that? She chuckled, amused with herself at the moment, and wondered what the Wiurn would do if she dropped off of his back at this point. She had magic to save herself at least.
It was nice to just... fly without worrying about anything at the moment. She smiled as the wind whipped through her hair at high speeds, and reminded herself she needed to wear her flying gear when they landed again. Maybe that was the next thing she needed to teach him, but oh well, it didn't really matter in the long run she thought. If she got hurt, she could fall off and float to the ground she figured with a little smile. Jack didn't know what to do about things at the moment, but she was simply enjoying the flight, steering him around the lake, skimming the surface of the water with Given's wings sometimes just to see if they could manage it. She liked it, and she wasn't sure what else to do with him at the moment aside from getting more experience with flying. Soon they would barrel roll and land, but other than that...
Everything would be fine she thought for a moment as she smiled into the wind. It was whipping past her at great speeds, and while she was sure she would be a sight after this was done, she was having fun and that was all that mattered she thought. So was Given, she knew when he hissed happily at her, though it was hard to hear him at such speeds. She grinned again, she loved this feeling, she was just going to have to remember to wear her gear at some point. That would probably help with the wind burn and all that she was probably getting at the moment, but oh well, she could live with it for a little while she figured. Jack laughed a little and swallowed a gulp of air, she loved it anyway at least, she had to know that much about herself she figured with a happy look.
She wasn't sure what to do after this, sure she had a list of stuff to do, but that wasn't that important at the moment. She smiled a little bit and wondered what to do with things. She needed to teach him to land and to barrel roll if she was going to keep up with her Guild, a few people had done this so far and all that, but not many. Some people had managed to keep up with the list, but most hadn't she figured. At least her items had come in and she'd been able to send out some rewards. She was rather pleased with them at least! Jack grinned and rubbed her Wiurn's neck as he flew around, and she knew it was almost time to start training again. They'd had a nice little flight break, but the needed to focus, and she figured that things would be fine.
Nothing was going to get in her way when it came to training, and she felt a lot of people knew that at some point or the other. She grinned a little and turned him around before straightening him out, slowing down a little as time went on. Jack was having fun and that was all that mattered, and so was Given, honestly. Giving a laugh, Jack wondered when things were going to end for them, but she wasn't sure what time was going to do for them. She smiled a little bit and shook her head a little bit and all that, and she wasn't sure what was going to happen so far. Oh well, she figured good things needed to end eventually, and she slowed him down a little so they could start training again. Soon enough they would be done and could take a little break, though she wasn't sure why they should.
They flew in to their dock again, and Jack immediately fell into training as soon as they got there. "Land!" she told Given with a smile, aiming him down until he crashed into the ground. She groaned a little and brushed herself off as they untangled from each other and stood up, Given shaking off a little, dazed and confused a bit from the crash. "Okay, definitely working on that..." Jack muttered as she shook her head to get the cobwebs out of her mind. Next time... maybe not be on the back of the animal she was teaching to land. That seemed like the best idea at least. She sighed a little and patted Given's nose when he came over to her and sniffed her a little bit, as though making sure she was still okay, and she smiled at him a little in reassurance of that fact. They just had to work a bit.
After having him fly again, she pointed to the ground, "Land, Given!" She called it to him since she didn't have a Ribbon for him at the moment, and she wasn't really sure if she would give him a Ribbon or not. Smiling a little, she saw him angle downward, but still crashed when he reached the ground. Jack managed a wince of empathy and hurried over to help him untangle his wings from each other. As he finally stood up again, he glared at her until she tossed him a fish with a smile on her face. She wasn't sure he would get this yet, but she was sure things would work out well enough after awhile. Rubbing his head absently, she wondered about different ways to train this so he would get better, but repetition was key here she knew, and she sighed a little as she worked with things over in her head.
Given shook his head and took to the sky again when she told him to, before turning down and landing again. This time he stumbled a little before falling, taking a bit of a run when he landed. At least it was better than last time, they both supposed. Given stood up and screeched as he shook his head, wondering what he was going to do about things as of yet. Maybe he needed more practice, it only made sense. Jack hopped onto his back, adjusting her flying goggles a little on her face and then ordered him into the sky again. This time she would be a little dumb, but that was fine she thought with a little bit of a laugh as she worked him into his paces in the air. Maybe they wouldn't crash completely this time, she had to trust him just a little bit she figured.
Having him fly again was an exhilarating experience she figured with a bright look on her face as they flew across the lake. Eventually she turned him and angled him down, "Land!" The shout managed to barely be heard over the wind whipping around them as they flew. Given eyed the ground and then angled down a little more and touched down with only a little bit of stumbling at this point. Jack cheered at him, wondering what was going to happen between the two of them as the training was completed and all that. She was sure things weren't going to be finished anytime soon, but it was kind of nice at the same time. Without a doubt, he was learning, and he was learning quickly, though she had questions and reservations about the next thing they would work on. She'd never taught anything to barrel roll before, she knew it would take awhile. But they needed to focus on the landing still just yet.

Nov 13, 2023 15:23:13 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: The jewelry on tail or at the head definitely tends to be their most recognizable feature for a Mosca, and sadly their pharaoh chin piece as well. XD
Nov 13, 2023 15:21:07 GMT -6
Zenjesi: Your peanut costume is hilarious and adorable too!
Nov 13, 2023 15:14:29 GMT -6

Twilight-Claw: It still looks good on Synkka. She is a shaman Mosca I'm guessing? Its mostly the tail that makes me think of it.
Nov 13, 2023 15:00:42 GMT -6
Zenjesi: I definitely like Spectral's the most too! I sort of cheated by drawing Synkka with a cloak because I do not know how to draw feathered wings, haha ^^'
