Hey PMC! This story is for my 100 sub special where i'm uploading a story and the skins of all the characters! The links to the skins are below.





The wind was howling and the rain was coming down in torrential waves. A large dark tower stood amongst enormous mountains, the wind containing the screams of a thousand tormented souls as it passed. A particularly large gust blew a small portion of the tiles from the slate tower and they shattered as they hit the rocky surface below. A woman, in bright pink, could just be seen through a large window at the tip of the tower.


A man stood in the shelter of a large crop of rock and gazed resolutely up at the window. He had travelled far and wide to find this place and he was determined to be successful. From the mano s spot under the rocks he could make out a cave off to the left of the tower which was pouring smoke from its entrance. This would undoubtedly be the dwelling place of a dragon.


The man lifted a heavy pack onto his shoulders and began to climb through the rain. He had climbed for almost an hour when he reached the base of the tower. He positioned himself on the right of the tower, out of sight of the dragono s lair, and pulled two large pointed hooks from his pack. He raised these over his head and slammed them into the rock walls of the tower, they stuck and he started to climb. As he hoisted his weight onto one hook he wrenched the other out and knocked it in higher.


Suddenly, the rock which the lower hook was embedded crumbled and it fell from the mano s hand. The man cursed and grabbed the remaining handle with both hands, leaving him dangling from a single hook hundreds of meters in the air. He looked around for any form of support and noticed a wonky nearby ledge. He lifted his foot and tried to catch the ledge with the sole of his foot but as he swung closer the hook jerked and he fell limp, desperate not to let the hook slip any further.


His heart began to beat faster as he realised his tricky situation and he began to feel his warmth being sapped by the wind and rain. He rested his head against the wall and imagined where heo d be if heo d not taken up this quest, with his friends? In a warm bed? Anywhere was better than here. As he gave up hope he felt a nudge as something long hit him in the back. He raised his head and saw a thick golden rope hanging from the window 50 meters higher. With a rush of hope he seized the rope and yanked the hook from the wall.


He climbed the sodden rope and was a mere meter from the window when he heard a deafening roar, the dragon was awake. He put his hand on the window sill and yanked his body through. As he collapsed on the floor he heard a particularly loud swoosh and the tower shuddered. He looked up and saw the princess who was pulling the rope back through the window, which happened to be an enormous pony tail. Once the hair was back through the window and pilled at her feet she froze. She took a shuddering star at the window. She whispered, o It can smell youo and as the words left her mouth a large unblinking eye pressed itself to the window.


There was a tremendous roar that vibrated the air. The princess was rooted to the ground and the mano s hair stood on end, this was going to cause some difficulties. The eye left the window and loud beating noises could be heard as the dragon rose into the air. A load crash and a cloud of dust told them it had landed on the roof.


The man jumped to his feet, o Weo ve got to get out,o he shouted as a great tearing noise issued from above o Now!o The princess seemed to come to her senses and she sobbed, o How? I cano t get down on my own hair.o The man swore and searched the room with a desperate stare, there was nothing of use.


There was another tremendous roar and the couple were drenched with rain as the roof split open above them. The man rushed forward and pulled the princess to the side just as the dragons head came snapping at their heads. The dragon missed the princess by a hairs width but knocked the man to the side. It lunged again; the man closed his eyes and raised his hands in a vain attempt to stop the dragono s jaws. The man was jarred as he felt the impact, but it was the dragon that roared with pain. As he opened his eyes he noticed the hook still sitting in his hand, and the point impaling a gap in the dragono s scales.


The dragon lifted its head and dragged the man from the ground with it, exposing them both to the torturous wind and rain. The man was suspended over the slanted roof of the tower, again the hook being the only thing keeping him from death. The dragon roared and the man felt his hair singe as it released a torrent of fire. It lifted its head and shook ferociously unhinging the hook almost instantly. The man felt a sense of weightlessness and then the lurching feeling of falling, but it was abruptly stopped as if by some sort of miracle he landed on one of the dragono s wings.


Without thinking he shoved the hook through the defenseless membrane of the wing and began dragging the hook toward the body. The dragon flinched and began flailing the wing throwing the man from his feet. But, by this point he was so close to the dragono s body that he spun and shoved the hook into its body.


The dragon screeched and made another feeble attempt to shake him off. But he was clinging on too tightly. He pulled himself onto its back and plunged the hook into the dragons neck. It yelped, quivered, and went still. The man sighed and stood and put the hook over his shoulder. He wiped his sopping brow and stepped towards the hole in the roof.


Suddenly, as he was slipping onto the wing the dragon started to slide slowly towards the edge of the tower. The man made a desperate lunge for the hole in the roof and managed to swing the hook over the ledge. He pulled himself over the hole and dropped inside as the dragon jerked and disappeared over the edge.

Very nice, Seems to remind me of some other stories(rapunzel obviously is one) and that kinda gave it a bit more of a familiar feel. Much love for this though.
