One of these days, I swear I will write real fanfiction for this fandom. 'Til then, have a bit of interaction between NPC's that few remember. Take note that this takes place in the first three Spyro games, not the Legend of Spyro ones. I'd say that it's between Spyro the Dragon and Ripto's Rage, time-wise.
Also, any and all comments-compliments, flames, or criticism-will be appreciated. But hopefully, this goes without saying.
"It's not that bad, you know."
"Not now, but it'll get worse if you let it get infected."
"I wouldn't let it get infected!"
A scoff, and then silence.
"Well, I wouldn't. I can take care of myself, Elora."
"Yeah, right. That's why you're missing fur and oozing pus."
"…Only on my tail…"
"Well, next time, it might be somewhere else! On one of your paws, maybe, or your face! What then?" More silence, really uncomfortable silence, before she sighs. "Here, scooch closer to me…"
"OUCH! That's only making it burn worse!"
"I'm cleaning it, genius. You want your tail tip to fall off? "
"You're a dork. Now, shut up and sit still…"
"…He deserved it, you know."
"The Earthshaper. He had a lotta nerve, you know? 'S not like the Alchemist deserved a pickaxe to the head. Well, not that time, anyway."
"Right, right, sorry. Just…it was like he was trying to attack the Professor, you know? That's not right."
"Yeah…you're right, it isn't. Still, there are other ways of dealing with this sort of thing. Jumping head-first into the situation like that wasn't smart, Hunter, and neither was hanging around to watch him sink into the lava."
"Well, hey, sorry if I'm not the Professor's 'most promising student.' We can't all be geniuses."
"I didn't mean it like that, Hunter. I know you aren't stupid, but being reckless isn't any better! Recklessness never got anyone anywhere."
"That's not true. Remember Finlay the Great from the Professor's books? If he hadn't been reckless, he wouldn't have become a hero, or gotten the girl, or any of that stuff."
"That's not-! Look, all I'm asking is that you be more careful next time, okay? I don't want you getting hurt, or…or worse."
"…Well, uh…I could try, I guess."
"Thank you. Um, here, your tail…"
"Hey, thanks! If I ever get burned and need bandages, I guess I know who to go to, huh?"
"Hmm…Tempting, but I think I'll have Zoe take care of it, instead. You know what she does with magic-she'd heal it in a second. Course, she does like experimenting with hair…no telling what color the fur would come out."
"Sheesh, I was kidding! I might be reckless, but at least I'm not evil!"
