Thorn is red. Saphira is blue. Shruikan is black. Glaedr is gold. The last egg is green. Some of my thoughts on each of the colours.

AN: This is it. The big one. The one we've all been waiting for. The last chapter. :D
Anyways, sorry for not updating for so long. I've felt so uninspired, and what with school starting and tons of homework and all that crap.
How would one describe a colour? It is very difficult. You could use a combination of feelings, smells, tastes, sounds, and pictures to describe a colour. Just barely. And I will attempt this impossible task. With the colour green.
Green is refreshing, cool. Not the icy coolness of blue, but something warmer, invigorating. Like jumping into a pool on a hot summer day.
It tastes like mint. No, not mint. Something less sharp, less strong. Like mint chocolate. Cool and sweet. And slightly bitter. Bittersweet. Mint dark chocolate. Or sour, like green apples.
Smell... green smells like freshly mown grass. Like moist, black, earth. Like spring rain. And like the gentle fragrance of tea, without milk or sugar.
The sound of trickling water, rustling leaves, and playful breezes. Of the drip-drip-drip of water in a dark, mossy cave. Tinkling laughter, of children playing on a field of grass. That is what green sounds like.
A sea of green, as far as the eye could see. A meadow, a blooming flower. Prairies dotted with daisies and pansies, petunias and lilies. An ocean of green, a large stretch of forest, never ending, seen from a bird's eye. The sparkling radiance, the swirling depths, of an emerald. The smooth, cool, surface, the deep, rich green, underlying the web of milky white veins of a dragon egg. Like living marble. Just waiting.
Green, the colour of life. An oasis in the middle of a desert, a safe haven. A patch of life and activity amidst the dry, dead, sand. A sprout blooming in a patch of dry earth. Green. Life.
How to describe this colour? You can never fully comprehend the marvel that is green until you have seen its many shades yourself.
And so ends the fic. It's my first completed fanfiction, even though it's my last to publish! :P
I just want to say thank you to all you readers and reviewers. I hope you have enjoyed this story as much as I have enjoyed writing it. I have another Inheritance idea brewing in my mind, but I think I will go back to my poor abandoned Harry Potter fic for now :D.
