Title: Draconity
Album: Draconity
Track #10

Draconity portrays the final chapter for 9 dragonkins who have been through different angles of draconity, a life as a dragon.

The elder dragon who resides in the lair has sensed the dragonkins, young and old alike. They have circled around him to seek for the answer of dragonkin, a life as a dragon spirit within, after their individual fateful journey. As if the elder knew what visitors wish to learn, he swipe a large dark red rag behind him to reveal a gigantic radiant mirror.

The mirror instantly shines brightly across the lair, bathing all dragonkins in light. A strong wind emanates along with that light as well. As it blows through all of dragonkins, the rocky walls start to disappear into thin air, while replaced by an aerial view of Dragon Canyon, surrounded by vast grass field, forest strips, and shining sea, stretching to eternity.

Surprised, a young dragonkin feels like he is no longer standing in place but rather floating as a panoramic view glides past him and others in the sky.

The elder turns around and point below, showing fellow astonished dragonkins to look at a massive canyon. There, many village dragonkins fly in many directions in the air. Some are traveling to gather food, some are farming in the fields, some are simply gliding through the air with their kids, teaching how to fly. They have a simple yet a peaceful life together.

Suddenly, a mysterious giant fireball flies across the canyon and hits a face of the mountain with a thundering thud. The village dragonkins fall into panic as they hear the explosion coming nearby. Dragonkin village leader and many strong dragonkin male villagers gather up and hurry to see where the attack comes from. As they head to the top of canyon, hordes of human troops are marching towards them below, wishing to claim the land for their territory.

After dragonkin leader's unsuccessful negotiation with humans to avoid battle, the human general fearlessly open fire to canyon once again with fireball catapults and land troops.

As the dragonkins try to fight for their own survival and defend their beloved home, it is only to delay their defeat. Humans outnumber them with massive troops and powerful weapons. They take away hidden treasures in the canyon and spare a few lives after they have taken what they have wanted. Many village dragonkins lose their lives to protect their love ones. Blood spills across the rocks in the canyon, while some rain down from the corpses of human and dragonkins. Dragon Canyon has become merely a ruin.

Survivors have decided to depart from their beloved home and find a new haven to live on. As they fly upwards towards the blue with tears running down the cheeks, they try to suppress the tragedy within their hearts.

The dragonkin survivors keep soaring upward until they reach elder and his dragonkins who are suspending in the sky from vision of mysterious mirror. Slowly, the survivors fly towards each newly-discovered dragonkin without saying a word.

Less than a meter apart, survivors gently offer a hand to each one of the dragonkin, with a smile on their face. The dragonkins acted surprised but instinctively take that hand without doubt. Suddenly, phantom limbs reveal behind their backs, spreading draconic wings wide apart to keep them suspending in the air. Each one look at another's eyes to see themselves felt at home more than before.

The elders and his fellow dragonkins, now as one, glide through the blue once again to live a life as dragonkin, whose spirit lives on friendship and kinship, forever....

I can picture it, it`s so touching...

So this is the ending piece of the album? It`s totally brilliant!
I always enjoyed your songs, and I am going to do so too!

Xyirx responds:

Yes, it's the final piece. Thank you so much for listening to my songs. I really, really appreciate it. :)

Wow. Just wow. You did an exceptional job picturing the scale and motion. Also the description helps to draw imagination in the right way. :)
One thing worth of changing is vox/vocal between 1:35-1:50 mark, but I myself could never achieve that edge of realism without professional libraries. When voice drops low it pops out the most. Other then that - superb.

Xyirx responds:

I'm honored you like the story and the song. :) And thank you for the vocal suggestions too. I was using free-download soundfont for the choir, so under-standard output could result sometimes. :)
