Hatching of the Leviathans by CoffeeAddictedDragon Hatching of the Leviathans by CoffeeAddictedDragon
"The leviathan whelp writhed around again, her muzzle grazing against the membrane of the egg sack in her attempts to stretch. As of late, her warm goo filled sanctuary had become far too small to house her growing form. It had served as a safe place from the dangers of the ocean, but now it was but a confining orange prison.

Her limbs twitched and her tiny claws scraped against the silky inner layer off the egg and her body undulated violently as she barked small, frustrated protests. Around her she could hear the muffled mewling of her siblings, most of which were still within their sacks, others had burst forth earlier that night.

The leviathan continued struggling, every ancient instinct in her infant body commanded her to break free. She coiled as much of her body under her as she could, her claws pummeling away at the egg sack's wall. She pushed with her muzzle with all her might, her form stretching to tear the membrane.

All at once, the pressure she had been fighting against vanished. Her head flew up, free of resistance as cold salt water met her. Slimy, bright orange amniotic fluid flowed out of the sack as it slowly began to deflate, it's job completed.

With scarcely a hesitation, the newly freed leviathan gripped for the small ledge before her and slithered most of the way out, bits of membrane and amniotic slime clinging to her. She rested on the edge, exhausted from her struggles for freedom. She looked around her new domain. All of what she surveyed was new. Every sound and scent met her for the first time, yet they seemed as natural and familiar to her virgin senses as if she had traveled these waters for years. She looked at the area surrounding her, blinking the amniotic film from her bright red eyes. All around her were eggs identical to hers. Most of them were still taut and bulging, the silhouettes of her siblings slithering around inside. Most of which were struggling to get free, like herself. A few others had completely caved in, their skins split and their husks darkening as the last of the bright orange fluid within them bled out into the sea.

A few of her siblings rested near their discarded eggs, frail bodies tired from their hatching. The leviathan sniffed the water. Suddenly, her stomach gave an unceremonious growl. This was a first, as she had never felt this within the egg. Instinct once again guided her actions. The whelp opened her jaws and let out a loud, shrill cry, her markings glowing as she did so. Every action she had done thus far was done on instinct alone. This time, however, she knew why she was doing what she was doing. Something had been there since she could remember. A presence that loomed over the entire nest almost consistently, watching them, guarding them...

She cried out again, joined now by her awakened siblings, all of them hungering no doubt from their plights. In the distance, a dark, murky form approached from the briny deep. An impossibly huge creature with eyes that cut through the darkness like blades, the scent of fresh blood proceeding it's arrival in the tide. But the whelp was not afraid, not in the slightest. She knew who this was, deep down in her being she knew who this was.

After all, who doesn't know their own mother?"

Sorry for the lack of digital art, first of all. I've been doing a lot of dinosaur art in traditional. ^^; I'm working on getting back on track with projects though.

I noticed that I haven't drawn a lot of leviathans, especially Scora, my own leviathan. It really is a shame considering they're constantly being referenced in Encounter. Si behold, Scora and her siblings being born! I'm also thinking of changing her name to Skulltis (skull-tis).

I'm serious about the name thing, I thought of Scora on a whim and it doesn't sit quick right...


For reference, newborn baby leviathans (whelps) are about the size of lynx or bobcat, but instead of being fluffy and round, their slimy, eel like feesh sneks (fish snakes) who'd sooner bite your hand clean off then twice look at you.



Might wanna do more on her life... She has quite a few tales to tell...


I think I'll put it in the Encounter folder since Scora DOES exist in the AU. Her territory begins where Yami's pod's territory ends.

P.S. The Leviathan whelp on the left shows what their markings NORMALLY look like. They only light up for certain emotions and in forms of communicating and intimidation.

I get it now. Dinosaurs are one of my most favourite things, especially the velociraptor. =)
By the way did you get my note?

CoffeeAddictedDragon Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, just couldn't answer.

Ah really? Now lemme ask you, do you like th Jurassic Park Velociraptors or the ACTUAL velociraptors? Cause apparently there Is a major difference.
Reply
:iconkrestenawolfshadow:
That's okay. =)
To be honest I like both but I would have to say I like the velociraptros from Jurassic Park the most. Or dino crisis. Jurassic Park - Velociraptor (M) [Clarence] [V.1]

Very well done, Star! You've improved so much since we first met. I really should make the Leviathan from our roleplay into an actual character, and maybe change his name to Titan, rather than just Levi. We really should continue that rp soon.
