coral rings

anonymous asked:

I love this AU so much! I was a little confused as to how Patton could be a Prince (or I guess just the son of the King) without drawing a ton of attention, but I underestimated the force of his I-do-what-I-want. I loved the interactions between Virgil and Caru. Everything that comes out of this AU is fun and dynamic, even when drawing on traditional fantasy tropes. I was curious, are there other beasts in this world beside dragons? Unicorns or anything?

Awww, thank you!!

And yes, if there were any kind of media in this world, there’s no way “Prince Morgan” could be basically undercover. But none of the other three have ever met him–Roman hasn’t been to the Capital since he was five, Logan’s supremely uninterested in court, so has kept to himself since coming to the castle to work, and of course Virgil’s been in the kitchens. There were probably a few others among the candidates who did know, but with Patton being pretty insistent on not getting any special treatment let it go. If Prince Morgan wanted to pretend to be a commoner, who were they to call him on it?

And Patton’s enjoying getting the chance to just talk to everyone, without them immediately bowing and getting all stuffy and formal. And now that he’s imprinted, he’s a rider, and that’s the only rank that matters to him.

For your second question, yes! Absolutely. There are unicorns, wyverns, gryphons, etc. The dragons are the most obvious, since they have an alliance with the humans, but other fantasy creatures absolutely exist. There’s even some tentative trading with the mermaids and mermen, though it’s only been established recently. Roman, in particular, has learned a few of their songs and has a coral ring he treasures.

The centaurs, now…that’s another story.
