1. Mythical lizards and humans. Oh interesting choice Anon!
Karkat had not expected this to happen. Like of all the lame shit to happen he had to get stuck a couple miles from town with a dead car. “Stupid fucking junker.” He kicks the tire and then leans back against the door with a huff. He’d called his dad who said help would be there soon. Help should hurry its dumb ass up already.
He’s expecting another car or maybe the beat of wings as someone in his family comes to get him. You know the regular shit, people driving, dragons flying, normal stuff. He does not expect what sounds like a buzz to pass right over him and then crash into the fucking brush at the side of the road. Karkat ducks, swearing a blue streak, and whirls around. Something large and scaled is writhing in the bushes and Karkat yanks his door open to get out the tazer that is most certainly not for humans.
Hand tight around the device capable of shocking a fully grown dragon to unconsciousness he moves toward the creature. It shakes a branch off its head and turns right as he lunges. It shrieks and dodges away as Karkat swings the device at him. A whip-like tail wraps around him and pulls him back. Karkat struggles but the tail is tight. Fuck, he just wanted to get home!
The wyvern which he can recognize now that he can see it looks at him and makes the oddest noise. It does it again and Karkat could kill it. It’s fucking laughing at him! He tries to bring the tazer in contact with its tail but just can’t reach. The wyvern sets him down and then starts to shift. Karkat grins his teeth and turns his back because he’s not interested in seeing this asshole naked.
A hand lands on his shoulder and he swings the tazer automatically. “Whoa hey! I’m trying to help you. Stop trying to kill me!” The human form of the wyvern is some total dork with a blanket wrapped around him. He grins at Karkat. “Your dad sent me since I’m the fastest and was hanging around. Need a ride home?”
Karkat scowls at him. “You could have fucking said something instead crashing into the bushes like a brain damaged fuck.”
“I almost flew right past you! I didn’t want to lose you!”
“You’re a fucking idiot.”
“I’m also your ride home.”
Goddammit, he’s right. Karkat flips the tazer cover back over the prongs. “Fuck. Fine. Change back and let’s go. If you crash when we land I’m murdering you.”
The wyvern laughs and it’s almost as irritating as what it sounds like in his real form. “You can try. I’m John by the way. Nice to meet you.”
“Yeah, yeah. It’s getting cold. Let’s fucking go already!”
