What up peoplezez

Though I was originally intending to do this after a Dragon's Soul was finished, numerous requests for me to start this one have gotten so annoying so that to shut them up, I'm starting it now.

I do not own anything related to Spyro; I do own Johnny and this story

Even in the darkest of times, there is always hope. But sometimes fear clouds our vision. Sometimes our strength gives out

And yet sometimes, when all seems lost, a light shines through the darkness, and we are reminded that even the smallest amount of courage can turn the tides of war.

Hunter had been following dead end leads for the past few weeks now. Ever since the mysterious disappearance of Spyro and his friends, he had been searching for them at the request of Ignitus. So far he had been following one unsuccessful tip-off after another for years and so far, the Dark Master has had plenty of time to spread his wrath upon the world.

Then, when all hope seemed lost, a note brought to him by a falcon told him about a mass of Grublins stationed at the remains of the Mountain of Shadows, the last place Spyro and his friends were rumored to be at before they went missing. As much as he was hoping for a solid lead, Hunter was concerned that it would lead him to nowhere again. Add to that the fact that Grublins weren't exactly the nicest things you'd want to meet and this little excursion meant that he'd be lucky to get out of there in one piece, let alone with two dragons, a firefly, and a human with superpowers.

Yet, despite the risk, Hunter decided to head there anyway. It was too big an opportunity to pass up. If he was able to find Spyro, Cynder, and Johnny, then their strength would be able to mark a turning point in the war.

However, getting through the mountain was no easy task. There were so many forces occupying the mountain that he was forced to stick to the shadows. Luckily a group of Grublins carrying a chest caught his attention, so he followed them into an area of the mountain that wasn't as populated. After a while, they stopped at some sort of golden crystal. There were some sort of shapes inside it, but they were too far away for Hunter to make out properly. Then one of the Grublins stepped forward and hit the crystal with a mace.

Suddenly, the entire crystal lit up in a bright light. Hunter has to shield his eyes to still be able to see. While he was doing this, he heard what appeared to be voices shouting.

"Spyro, stop!"

"We're not leaving without you!"

"Get close to me! Now!"

After a while, the light died down, revealing three figures passed out on the ground. The Grublins then opened the chest and pulled out three snake like objects, wrapping each one around their necks. They then carried them down the hallway, unaware of the cheetah lurking in the hallway.

With a sigh, Hunter turned back to the hallway. A light was still glowing over by the remains of the crystals. On closer inspection, it appeared to be a dragonfly, and it was slowly regaining consciousness. Making sure there were Grublins in sight, Hunter walked over and picked him up, making sure it wasn't harmed in any way.

Hmm… good start

For those of you who are reading this and aren't following, read the previous two stories so that it'll make sense
