Zootopia: A Wolf-Dragon’s POV
Hmm...This is new, love the movie but also wanted to do an OC fic where being in the universe is the amazing thing but the difference from the OC’s normal.
Chapter One: Some Times the Ripple Only Goes So Far
Zootopia, a name synonymous with those outside it’s multiple regions as the perfect place where predators and prey lived in peace and harmony. This was a place where anyone can be anything, however that mind set was fractured and ruined for a young red fox in an olive green junior ranger scouts and red neckerchief as he ran to the meeting place.
Above the city a rather strange shooting star shot across the sky before splitting into two separate trails one going for Zootopia and the other to one of the outlying farming communities. As the shooting star neared the city it began to slow down the heat and light began to fade as well altitude as it headed to Savannah Central. Dropping into an alleyway the star came to rest, but this was no star. This was a blue wolf pup, well he looked twelve so not a teen, in a disheveled outfit consisting of a pair of red toe brown shoes with a strap holding it together, worn gray jeans, a faded white t-shirt under a navy blue coat and a pair of dark gray fingerless gloves.
“Well that could have gone better, you okay sister?” The wolf asked before opening his cyan eyes and tried to get up. “The landing was a little bit rougher than I thought but I’m in one piece how about…”
It was only then that he looked around and saw he was by himself, and to add the fact he noticed the change into a younger age and the set of blue leather wings may cause problems.
“Why some places make my draconic half show more is beyond me.” He spoke to himself as he checked himself for injures, but only found dragon scales covering the injured areas and looking at his fur noticed the armor like scales with the hairs coming out around them and hiding them from plain sight.
“I’ll have to fix my jacket later for not I might want to keep the wings on the downlow.” Saying that as he pulled off his jacket and after getting his wings off of the fabric he put it back on and zipped it up.
Coming out of the alley the wolf noticed how, he could not think of another word for it besides, modern it was. Roads paved, cars driving down the streets, electrical lights, and...was that a car driven by a mouse the size of a real mouse with a suit and tie on.
“Okay if that is the strangest thing that makes me stop and think then I’m good.” He said now watching where he stepped.
He had to find his sister but where could she be, he had no idea where to go or what to ask. Heck going to the police he would have to answer where his parents were and she may be with them and that he was the lost one. First off he was not natural to this place so his parents weren’t here and so his sister could not be there. Second, once they knew he had no one to care for him straight to the orphanage or a foster home and that would only cause more trouble. As he walked down the street he began to think as he passed a community center something stopped him. He was use to the hearing of his wolffian and draconic ancestry gave him but what he heard made him stop in his tracks.
The sound of a fight, no a beating, came to his ears. Quick as a whip hopping up to the railing and into the building, ears turn searching for the sounds that he wish did not bring him into this building. Finding it he saw the second strange thing. Young herbivores ganged up on a red fox kit, in a similar outfit to them, with four of them keeping the fox down. Kid had some fight in him as he tried to break free of their grip.
“No! NO!” The Kit screamed still fighting back. “What did I do wrong, you guys?” He asked as they ignored him and reached for something. “Help! Please, what did I do wrong? What did I do?”
The wolf could not tell if the fox saw him but at that moment the wolf did not care, this was something that no matter the place or the time had to be stopped. A song he heard once came to mind. “Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?, Because it isn't in your blood, Not a part of what you're made”
It was only when he saw one of the youths grab something and try to force it over the Kit’s head.
“NO!” The Kit yelled as the thing was forced over his head, it was only then that the wolf saw it was a muzzle.
“You thought we could ever trust a fox without a muzzle?” A Beaver that had a smug look on his face. “You're even dumber than you look!”
“THAT IS ENOUGH!” The wolf said a growl in his throat and his fist clenched as he hopped over the railing for the short stair well. He landed in a low crouch and long strands of darker blue fur covering his eyes and bridge of his mussel. “Why?” He asked not looking up from the ground. “Why are you doing this?”
The momentary shock of seeing this stranger seemly appear out of nowhere was forgotten as most of them just laugh. It was that laugh a bully had when they knew they won.
“Why would we ever want lying and cheating fox in our troop?” The Beaver said his smugness going strong while motioning for the others to let the Kit go. “We are junior ranger scouts those who are brave, loyal, helpful, and trustworthy. Why would we want a fox to ruin our image.”
The wolf slowly raised his head. “Loyal to only those similar to you, helpful in only spreading hate, and those other two don’t deserve to be in that motto.” It was now his eyes could be seen by all of those in the room, draconic cyan eyes narrowed and stared at them all. “I personally would not join a group like you.”
With a snap of his right middle finger and thumb the muzzle fell apart in front of their eyes, the fox slowly sat up and the metal part covering his snout fell off. It clung to the ground to the ears of the others in the room.
“How did you do that with just one snap?” The kit asked, speaking for the room.
“That is for me to know and you to imagine.” The wolf said as his eyes slowly changed back to wolffian. “Kit, let’s get out of here.”
The fox did not question the larger predator and followed him out. The rest of the room had a pungent silent, none talked until one of them fainted.
“Wally your idea sucked.” One of the others said going to check on the fainted scout.
Meanwhile the fox lead the wolf to the vulpe’s home and making small chat. The height different between the two were not to hard to see with the fox coming up to the elbow of the wolf. During the walk there was an awkward silent between the two formed, the wolf had noticed the fox’s line of sight to the sidewalk. First thing that came to the wolf’s mind was to ask the fox his name.
“So what’s your name your name kit?” The wolf asked wanting to not make it seem like he was someone that was just an angry person that could snap at any moment.
The fox still tried to avoid eye contact with the wolf but replied to him. “Nicholas Wilde.”
The wolf noticed the sad almost wimpy tone in Nicholas’s voice, after what the kit went through the wolf could understand if the kit broke down and cried but the young fox was still trekking on.
“Well Nick it is nice to meet ya.” The wolf’s voice soften to a tone of a parent to a child. “I’m Coy Dracowolf, and under that thing you saw in there is just a scared kid looking for his sister.”
Nick looked up to see that fear hidden in Coy’s eyes but also something more calm. Nick felt himself relax a bit being around the larger youth after finally looking into the wolf’s eyes after that event with the other kids. Thinking back to that caused the fox to question the whole idea about trying anything when people will only ever see you as you are.
Elsewhere in a meadow of a farming community of Bunnyburrow, Coy’s sister had a much rougher landing then her brother due to her being asleep when they appeared in this world. She hit the ground and the speed of her travel caused a trench to form but due to her scales and elemental earth powers she was not as harmed as much as she could have been. However she was still knocked out as even as she noticed she was crashing the force that she created drained her energy. Fortune smiled on the wolf dragon as she crashed near a farm that the residents heard her crash.
“Stu*yawn* did you hear that.” A gray furred female rabbit with sleepy purple eyes sat up in a pink night dress and looked to her husband that laid next to her in bed. “It sounded like something crashed outside. Go check it out.”
“Just a moment Bonnie*yawn*, Need to get my flashlight at this time of night.” The brown furred floppy ear rabbit in plaid sleepwear said slowly getting up. “I wonder if Judy heard it?” Stu said more to himself.
As always the moment Stu said that crying could be heard coming down the hallway. For that moment both parents did the standard groan and Bonnie followed her husband out of bed. Both looked at the other and knew their wildest dreams had left them and the real world came and took that adventure into another direction.
“I’ll check on Judy and wait until you return to me.” Bonnie said kissing Stu’s cheek.
“You know you could still be that poet if you want Bon.” Stu said returning the kiss. “I can take care of the farm while you write.”
“And miss out on all the joys of farming, Stu Hopps you must be crazy.” Bonnie jokingly spoke only getting a chuckle out of Stu before Judy’s came louder than before. “Well time for this momma bunny to do her thing.”
With that the pair split for duties that was important to do, and by the end of the night something strange would happen in the Hopps household. Stu got out to where Bonnie noticed the broken tree branches, which was strange as far as he knew no predator or prey that large were out in town so why would those branches break? It was then that he noticed the trench that was carved into the ground leading him to find a wolf pup of all things in a somewhat deep hole for him. He began to look up to see of anything way down without hurting himself, it seemed it was easy to just go to the start of the trench and down to the wolf pup. Once down next to the pup Stu began to look at her guessing from the shape of the face; red and gray fur mixed on top of her head with a grey jacket with crimson stripes on the side of the arms and her paws covered by black fingerless gloves, a crimson piece of clothing could be seen under her jacket with gray jeans and strange black and silver things on her lower paws.
“She looks pretty rough.” Stu said to himself scratching his chin. “Now how to get her back to the house?”
Hiking up his pants up and flashlight in his back pocket of his pants, Stu got around the pup and lifted her up until he could reach under her arms and began to drag her to the house. About halfway to the house Stu felt the pup move which made him stop and wait to see if she would come to.
“What happen?” She asked drowsily trying not to move.
“Well I found you at the bottom of a fresh trench all by yourself.” Stu said still supporting her. “Try not to stand we need to get to the house so I can see how badly you're hurt.”
“I think I can walk just lead the way.” The wolf said getting her leg under her and her tail to help move her up. Once she put pressure on her right leg she felt the pain shoot in her ankle, felt like a sprain but could be worst. This caused her to shift into a quadruped stance with her hurt ankle lifted above the ground. “Looks like my luck held out with only an ankle injury.”
Stu just shook his head, he noticed her ankle was out of place when he check her out but this did make it easier for him to get back home. It took a moment before the wolf was walking with natural pace for the three legged movement but they got to the house without much hassle or conversation as the wolf had to focus on not putting her injured foot on the ground. Once at the house, the wolf noted that it looked like a normal farm house with a large dome seeming to swallow it, Stu asked her the rest on the front porch while he informed his wife what was happening as it is odd to have a wolf pup here with almost no wolves living here as well as the trench. With a nod from the wolf Stu moved into the house with the wolf looking at her sitting options, well laying options as it seemed from the size of the chairs and benches. Not wanting to seem rude the wolf just placed her injured foot on the love seat and stood listening to what was going on inside.
“Welcome back dear.” The wolf heard a female voice said to Stu, assuming this must be his wife, with a relieved tone. “Was everything alright? You were gone longer then you said you were.”
“I’m fine Bonnie.” Stu said consoling her. “But the reason I was so late was because I found a wolf pup in a fresh trench and dragged her halfway here before she woke up and learned that her right ankle was injured.”
“You didn’t leave the poor girl out there, did you?” Bonnie said with the wolf picturing the hands on the hips and the look on Stu’s face.
“Not for the night just…” Stu started before the wolf heard Bonnie move past him while saying.
“Honestly Stu why would you leave any injured out at this time of night.” Bonnie’s voice grew louder until the wolf saw the gray rabbit female. And the mix of motherly care and fear on her face made the wolf want to chuckle but that could wait as the energy drain and injury was making the wolf sleepy.
“Please come inside sweetie and let’s see if we can’t fix that leg of your’s.” Bonnie said a smile and mother in her winning out on the natural fear that the wolf knew the rabbit felt.
“As you wish ma’am.” The wolf said with a bow, and moving back to the same walking pose that she did getting the house into the building.
Amazingly that shift in height made getting through the doors easier for the wolf, Bonnie lead the wolf girl to the living room where Stu had gotten splint components after Bonnie went out to get the wolf. Once in the wolf sat down easy with her right leg sticking out and started undoing her boots.
“Excuse me…” Stu started only to remember he had not asked the wolf her name.
“Dracana, my name is Dracana.” She filled in for him as she began to fully loosen the boot so not to aggravate the injury.
“Dracana.” Stu repeated to himself. “What is that which has been covering your paws?”
“Boots, an article of clothing used to protect my...paws from injury or other hazards.” Dracana replied filling in her normal terminology with the one that Stu used. Once it was loose enough Dracana began to push the boot away from the injured foot.
The pair of rabbits got the items ready, surprising that they had material for an animal Dracana’s size but it was the standard size they were sold in because it was cheaper than the rabbit ones. Once they could see that another article of clothing that was white and covered Dracana’s paw, but even they could tell the little bit of red on one was not her fur color and it looked swollen. The wolf did a tentative touch of the injury, and had to hold back a cry of pain by clamping her jaw shut. Dracana notice the momentary fear pass through the rabbit’s eyes from that action but she also saw the sympathy from her pain.
“Stu. get on the other side.” Bonnie said taking charge, Dracana could guess it was the mother in the rabbit coming out. “Dracana this is going to hurt.”
Bonnie got the gauze bandage ready before handing the loose end to Stu, who then made it taut while Bonnie began to wrap it around the injury. It only took a few minutes but during that Dracana had to make a sound proof bubble of air around her head so not to startle the rabbits helping her. Once the splint was done the bubble was gone and neither rabbits noticed it, now with that done Dracana started to get up only for Bonnie and Stu to stop her.
“Now hold on a moment.” Stu said with a paw on Dracana’s shoulder. “You need to rest that paw, and a doctor needs to check it out.”
“Thank you for your kindness but I was not alone when I came here and I must look for him.” Dracana said while knowing Coy might be fine but him being her only family it felt horrible not know if he was alright for sure.
“You were the only one there and I did not see any signs of others being in the area but we could check it after you get checked up.” Stu said stating what he knew.
“Not to be rude or mean but I doubt you have a room for me to say in.” Dracana said but Bonnie countered that thought.
“A bed maybe to small but you’re in a home made for rabbits so there is still plenty of room for you.” Bonnie said as she, for some reason that Dracana could never fathom, lightly dragged the wolf to a guest bedroom that was spacious enough for both Dracana and her brother to sleep in comfort and space between them. “Sleep well because tomorrow maybe a rough one.”
With that said the female rabbit left to get something that could help prop up the injured foot. When Bonnie did return Dracana was propped up against the wall with her lower half of her body taking up most of the bed in the room. This made the gray rabbit smile a bit and got a giant piece of fabric draping that over the taller sleeping form.
Crying, that is what Dracana awoke to. Not cries of pain or of physical harm but that of an infant. It may be her maternal instances but every since she learned of the types of cries infants make, trust me that was a strange thing the first time she heard it, she felt the need to care for the young ones. Almost jumping out of bed, keyword almost, Dracana began test the right ankle and noticed it hurt less but it is wise to just stay off it.
“Alright Dra,” Dracana said to herself pulling off the cover. “Just use the wall and hobble to the kitchen.”
With that prep talk the female slowly swung her legs to the side of the bed, moving her left foot down on the ground then leaning down on her left side then her right hand and her tail down for balance. Padding to the door and into the hallway then to the kitchen. There Dracana saw Bonnie there making breakfast, looked to be oatmeal or some other type of grain with fruit and berries in it.
Dracana could not bring herself to scare the rabbit by speaking but had to find some way to sit down without putting pressure on her leg. Looking around the wolf-dragon saw a love seat bench outside seemed like she could comfortably sit in. Now how to get outside of the house, and it was only a moment of thought but in that time the gray female rabbit saw her.
“You know,” Bonnie said causing Dracana to face her. “you should still be in bed.”
“Maybe but I’m not a being to just lay down unless I can’t move.” Dracana replied recalling how many times she had to be forced to rest when she was younger. “Besides call it coming of age or maturing but when I hear a baby cry I wake up, and I had not eaten in a day or so.”
“Just give me a moment and I can get you something to hold you over until we can get you predator food.” Bonnie said with good intent but Dracana heard something akin to what she seen in her travels with her brother when they were not the same skin color for some beings.
“It cool,” Dracana said with shrug of her shoulders. “Oatmeal is one of my favorite meals, the berries just make it better.”
So once Dracana was able to sit down, Stu had come in with a little gray rabbit snug to his chest and in the crook of his arm. The wolf gave a small smile and slowly ate the oatmeal, which was very tasty and the juice of the berries added to the meal. Not surprising Dracana finished faster than the rabbits, the bowels are small for beings of her size, and wishing to help with the dishes. She tried to do this and did make it to the sink with her dishes in hand and the other hand using the counters to keep her from using her injured foot. It surprised Stu and Bonnie that she would be willing to do this. While one took care of Judy and her breakfast the other tried to talk to the wolf and reason why Dracana should relax and just worry about her wrapped paw. The wolf just shook her head, if she was going to be looked after by the pair while they had a child of their own then she would try and do what she could to do things herself.
It was a discussion that was interrupted by Judy taking the remainder of her oatmeal and putting it on her head. The other two rabbits and wolf laughed at this and the young rabbit just giggled. When Stu said that he would do clean up the high-chair and Judy, Bonnie was about to get back on the dishes discussion just to hear the draining sounds of water and Dracana’s dishes as well as a few others that she had planned on doing after she got back with the wolf from the doctor’s.
Dracana shrugged and said why waste water on the small stuff when you can get more done. What the rabbits did not know was the wolf-dragon used her control over water to make sure that no dirt or grime remained on anything she just washed. While Bonnie was impressed, since Stu had left to give Judy a bath, she was still insistent that Dracana should not be on her paws unless necessary. But looking at the time and knowing how busy the local hospital could be Bonnie just let it be and moved to get her purse and the keys to the truck. Dracana did not ask as her ankle was all she needed to get the hint and the pair were off with Dracana surprised that the truck was able to fit her in it.
The hospital was rather strange as there were several doors of varied sizes, but that was then that she saw the number of smaller and larger than rabbit size beings that were there. To Bonnie’s surprised a doctor was available at that moment for a walk in. Dracana found that strange given how there was several other beings in the room, but looking around it seemed mostly rabbits with the random near same size animal near them. Taking a seat on the padded operation table and waited for the doctor to walk in, surprising Dracana it was a ferret with white fur on his head with a black mask like pattern around his eyes and black fur going down into his blue button down dress shirt with a red and yellow striped tie with the white lab coat and black slacks.
The Doctor’s name was John Doerian, and he had this happy look on his face with a tone of voice that was genuine caring. Since they did not have any information on Dracana, said wolf saying her family was more nomadic and normally stayed in the outdoors living off what the land gave them be it large grubs or fruits as well as her and her brother being sent to live in different places to test knowledge and resourcefulness, would require all the normal things for a wolf of her ‘age’.
About four hours later Dracana was on a set of crutches and moving out of the hospital, amazingly the government that ran this place had free healthcare, while her ankle did break it was nothing major. She chalked that up to the natural draconic healing fire she had and used internally to heal the bone. On the ride back Bonnie and Stu’s farm the wolf made an offer when she was healed she would on the farm as a farm hand and baby sister if the adults wanted to go out and have a good time. Bonnie said that she and Stu would talk about it when they got back. Dracana had a feeling that it would happen but she could never truly be sure, but that moment she looked to the sky and wondered if her brother was looking at it too.
