[AKA just a thread for Poppy to ramble and unsuccessfully attempt to develop her idea] (also, I'm watchin y'all... this idea probably isn't worthy of being stolen, but still... *insert eyes emoji*)
No idea what they'd be called.
PoolWings, DeepWings, ShockWings, BoltWings, VoltWings? The first two are just generally watery names, but DeepWings reminds me of deep-fried chicken wings. ShockWings and BoltWings both sound kinda stupid, and idk if I'm smart enough to create a tribe called VoltWings because then I might have to go into more detail about what they know about electricity and voltage. PoolWings just sounds meh.
But anyways, I'm thinking they'd be able to hold their breath for a really long time instead of breathing underwater, but I don't know if that's just kinda pointless. They could be a sort of amphibious tribe (eh not really amphibious but more like... sea snakes? I guess?). However, if they could hold their breath for a really long time, they'd likely have much higher levels of hemoglobin, and their flesh/blood could look black at first sight but it's really just a super dark red and that would be pretty awesome. (WAIT, headcanon time: MudWings have black blood yeaaaaah)
I kinda just wanna make an overall creepy tribe and electric eels are pretty creepy. Except I'm worried they'll just turn into the SeaWings' creepy cousins that no one wants to invite to Thanksgiving but they're the Vodka Aunt's child so you gotta suck it up and do it...
Other tribe ideas: SteppeWings/MoorWings, GlenWings/GardenWings, StoneWings/QuarryWings. And SpiceWings??? I have no idea when or why I got that idea but I found it in my notes and now I'm actually considering making cute little spice-themed dragons.
Ugh now I gotta do some extensive research on sea snakes and electric fish.
(I'm so proud of myself tho this is the first fantribe idea I've had in a while that I actually like)
Please tell us why you'd like to report this post
