Well, this is my first attempt at a multi-chapter legendary fanfiction, so I hope it goes well.

Articuno smiled and took a deep, refreshing breath as she watched the majestic scene in front of her. The sun was just breaking the horizon, causing the water near it to reflect it and take on an orangish hue. Meanwhile, the sky was an orangish color as well. With pink and purple cotton-candy clouds painting it pastel.
She took another deep breath and let it out, relaxing her body, yet waking it up a bit at the same time. She loved watching the sun rise. She was also the only member of her trio who bothered getting up early enough to watch it. 'Oh well,' she thought. 'They snooze, they loose.'
"Beautiful, isn't it?" a voice asked softly, yet still managing to startle her. She had thought she was alone. She turned her head to see Lugia standing nearby.
"Oh, it's you," she said in a releived voice. "I wasn't expecting you here. You usually stay in the water and sleep in a bit before coming up to see us."
"Yeah, but I like to watch the sun rise every once in a while. It's just so inspiring, you know?" he replied as he moved closer to stand at her side.
"Yes," she answered simply as she turned her gaze back unto the sun rise, trying to hide the blush that was on her cheeks under her sky blue feathers from having him be this close to her. She was so preoccupied with her embarrassment that she didn't notice that Lugia was doing the same thing. He too was oblivious to their identical situations.
Movement in the distance caught Lugia's attention. "What's that?" he asked, motioning to the object with one of his large, white wings and breaking the awkward silence.
Articuno followed his wings point with her ruby eyes and saw the movement as well. She squinted, hoping to see it better. After a few seconds, it had gotten close enough for both Articuno and Lugia to see it clearly.
It was Amelia, one of Arceus' eighteen messenger Pidgeots. You could tell that she was one of the messengers by the golden band around her leg, just above the talon.
Amelia closed the distance and landed in front of them. She gave a small bow and said "I have a message from Lady Arceus. She wishes for all the legendaries to meet at the Hall of Origin. She states that attendance is mandatory."
Articuno nodded and said "Thank you, Amelia. We will be there."
Amelia nodded and took off into the air, leaving the two white and blue flying legendaries together once again.
Lugia turned to Articuno. "I'll go wake up Zapdos and you go get Moltres. We'll meet at the halfway point and fly to the Hall of Origin as a group. Agreed?"
"Agreed," she replied as they both spread their huge wings and took to the sky.
Suicune groggily opened her crimson eyes. She groaned a bit as she climbed to her feet. Her jaw stretched into a yawn and the rest of her body followed suit. She turned around to look at her counterparts.
She sighed and shook her head when she saw Raikou. He was drooling and legs were flailing around in the air. He was mumbling something about giant flying waffles. She gave a small smile and softly said "What am I going to do with you?"
She checked on Entei, who was sleeping peacefully, before heading to the lake. She took a drink before wading in up to her belly. A shiver ran up her spine from the chilly water. She laid down and dipped her head under. She pulled it back up after a moment and took a deep breath before plunging in for a quick swim.
After she was good and awake, she climbed out of the water and walked back to her counterparts. A mischievous grin was plastered on her snout as she shook herself dry, soaking the other two members of her trio in the process.
Entei jumped about four feet in the air, yelping in shock. Meanwhile, Raikou's eyes snapped open and he leaped to his feet yelling "THE WAFFLES ARE ATTACKING!!" and snapping his head around to try and locate his 'waffle attackers'.
Suicune burst out laughing, causing both the fire lion and the thunder tiger to focus their attention on her.
"What the heck was that for?!" Entei growled, his voice still a little yelly from the shock of being awakened from a deep sleep by on onslaught of cold water.
"It's time to get up," Suicune replied simply, still grinning.
Entei rolled his eyes and Suicune's grin just got a bit bigger. Suddenly, Raikou pointed at the sky with one of his claws and asked "Is that a bird, a plane, or Superman?"
Suicune rolled her eyes and followed his claw's point. Her gaze landed on a Pidgeot with a golden band around his leg. "It's Julian, you know, one of Arceus' Pidgeots," she said.
Julian hovered above them and opened his beak to say something when Entei interrupted. "Let me guess, there's a meeting and we have to go, right?"
Julian closed his beak and nodded.
"KK! We'll be there!" Raikou said enthusiastically.
Julian smiled at him before flying away.
"Come on. Let's go get Ho-oh so we can go," Suicune said, beginning to walk in the direction of Ho-oh's tower
Raikou started giggling. "'Ho-oh' and 'go' are rhyming words! Suicune's a poet and she didn't even know it! She can make a rhyme anytime! She's got class but also sass and if you tick her off she'll kick your...,"
"RAIKOU! SHUT THE HELL UP!" Suicune and Entei roared in unison as they made their way to Ho-oh's tower.
Giratina groaned and rolled over, trying to ignore the Pidgeot who was insistently trying to wake him up. "Go away Archemedes, I'm trying to sleep!" he whined.
"But I have a message from Lady Arceus," Archemedes replied.
"Is it that she finally realized that we are perfect for each other and she wants me to come to the Hall of Origin so that she can confess her undieing love for me?" he asked, finally opening his blood-red eyes and smiling from the fantasy.
"Uhhhh, noooo," Archemedes replied. "There's a meeting and you have to attend. You know how angry Lady Arceus gets when someone doesn't attend a meeting..."
Giratina stumbled to his feet and sighed. "Well, I love seeing Arcy angry cause it's so damn funny, but I'm not ready to die so I guess I'm going. Besides, I can always bug her at the meeting so this should at least be semi-fun." He grinned mischievously.
Archemedes rolled his eyes before leaving to return to his home at the Hall of Origin.
Giratina walked to the mouth of the cave and took to the sky with his strangely out of place wings. He flew until he reached the top of the tower of clouds known as the Sky Pillar, where his best friend Rayquaza lived.
"Yo! Ray! There's a meeting at the Hall of Origin! Get your lazy butt up and moving! I don't want to keep my girl waiting!" he yelled down to the green dragon.
Rayquaza lazily opened his yellow eyes and yawned. He looked at his friend as he landed next to him. "You do realize that the love between you and Arceus is completely one-sided, right?"
"Yeah, but I'm allowed to dream. Now let's get going!" the renegade dragon said with a grin.
Rayquaza rolled his eyes and smiled. He pulled himself up and went into his flying position. "Race ya to the Hall of Origin!" he yelled as he zoomed of the tower and into the sky.
"You're on!" Giratina bellowed as he did the same.
Cresselia opened her lavender eyes and smiled. Her dreams that night had been especially wonderful. She stretched her neck and wings before levitating outside. She paused to inhale the aroma of her lilacs and tulips before movement nearby caught her attention.
The golden banded Pidgeot landed and walked over. He did a small bow and said "Good morning Cresselia."
Cresselia smiled. "Hello Demicus. Do you have a message from Arceus?"
Demicus smiled and nodded. "Yes. There is a meeting that all legendaries have to come to."
"I'll be there," she replied. "Are you going to give the message to Darkrai as well since you are already in this area?"
"Yes, why do you ask?" he replied.
Cresselia's smile turned into a smirk. "Well, it's just that he hasn't slept in two days, so he's a bit grouchy. A bit grouchy as in he blew up several trees on his island for no reason. I'd be careful if I were you."
"Thanks for the warning," Demicus said sarcastically, earning an even bigger grin from Cresselia. "I'll try not to irritate him enough to kill me," he added as he flew off toward New Moon Island.
"Good luck," she chuckled to herself as she turned to leave for the Hall of Origin.
"You weren't going to leave without me, were you?" a cheerful voice asked from behind her.
She recognized the voice of one of her best friends easily. She smiled widely and turned to face the red and white eon dragon known as Latias. She zoomed to Latias' side and pulled her into a hug. "Glad ya made it, Latias!" she said before releasing her hold. "Now let's get going! We don't want to be late, especially if there's any food!"
"Yeah," Latias giggled. "You know how Palkia gets. Now let's go!" she cheered as they zoomed off for the Hall of Origin.
"Damn you to Hell Barney!" Darkrai screamed as he used his razor sharp claws to lacerate a log that he had carved into the shape of the retarded purple dinosaur. Once it was turned into splinters, he floated off to find something else to destroy.
He hadn't slept in two days because he'd had a nightmare involving Barney and he DID NOT want to risk having it again. Just once was enough to scar for life.
He saw a bush rustle out of the corner of his visible sky blue eye and prepared a Dark Void attack. "Show yourself or die a slow, torturous death!" he growled at whoever was hiding in the bush.
"Please, don't kill me! I'm coming out," Demicus said as he came ou from behind the bush, his wings spread to show he meant no harm.
"Why are you on my island?" Darkrai snarled, still holding the Dark Void in his claws.
"Lady Arceus sent me to tell you that there is a meeting at the Hall of Origin and every legendary must attend. She said that it is a very important meeting," Demicus replied, bowing a little in hopes of not looking like something that should be killed.
Darkrai's visible eye narrowed a bit more before he finally let the attack fade. "Tell that freaky horse slash wolf thing that I'll be there, but I'm not going to like it and I'll probably just make it a living Hell for everyone else."
Demicus nodded and took his opportunity to get the heck out of there.
Darkrai sighed as he gained some altitude. 'Damn meetings. At least it will give me something other than how tired I am to think about,' he thought as he made his way to the Hall of Origin.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the first chapter. Please review!
