Welcome to "Oops?", an Umbli fanfic! The basis to this AU is that almost all dragons have word(s) printed somewhere on their body from the day they were born. These words are the first words your soulmate will say to you, and are written in their handwriting.

 

 

 

 

Chapter One: What Fell Before They Did

 

Qibli glared at his jaw in the puddle. The SeaWings had some very fine puddles around the sea shore. The backwords "What?" was scrawled in a questionable manner. The "w" wasn't even uppercased, and the black letter didn't end before it went into the "h", "a", "t," and question mark.

 

Qibli decided a long time ago he did not like his soulmark. Those words belonged to someone who was messy and he did not want to spend his entire life with them. He decided to rid the thoughts of soulmates and soulmarks as he continued his mission - to deliver a box of gems back to Thorn. He grabbed the wooden box and lifted into the blue sky.

 

But, now that he had thought about his soulmate, he couldn't stop.

 

Is it possible to never meet your soulmate? the SandWing pondered, tightening his hold on the box. What if he never did? He'd already met two dragons who said his soulmark to him - a NightWing named Moonwatcher and an IceWing named Winter, but Moon's soulmark was still a mystery and Winter's was "Your scales are so shiny!" The NightWing hadn't been comfortable sharing her soulmark, which was totally fine, but she promised it wasn't Qibli. Winter, on the other hand, grudingly proved that Qibli was not his soulmate by showing the messy words on the base of his neck. Winter had said he wasn't exactly looking forward to meeting his soulmate.

 

Qibli had laughed at the IceWing. In fact, they were still some sort of friends, and if Winter were a girl, he would be completely fine with Winter as his soulmate.

 

Qibli's stomach clenched. Same-gender relationships were unheard of in Pyrrhia - he was certain if the universe decided that two guys or girls were soulmates, genders wouldn't stop anything, but he hadn't encountered anyone like that.

 

Qibli knew it was rather lame and needy of him to worry so much about his soulmate. He'd asked Thorn about it, worried that at this point (He was five, shouldn't he already have found the love of his life?!) he'd be alone, and she'd told him to not worry about it.

 

The SandWing hefted the crate up higher in his talons, gripping it with his claws rather than his talons.


But still.... What if? What if he'd never meet them? It was a thought that often nagged at him, and he didn't think it would leave soon.


Qibli felt wind pushing his wings at a different, more erratic interval, and a loud noise from in front of him. His head snapped up, eyes wide, pupils dilating as he swerved to the side. Narrowly, he avoided the flock of large white birds rushing towards him.

 

Unfourtunatley, he didn't notice the box slipping out of his talons until he heard an undignified squeak from below.

 

This was something he'd leave out of his report...

 

Umber felt something hard crash into his head, and immediately he fell, letting out a rather shameful squeak. The MudWing gasped for air in an oddly grotesque way. Sharp needle points fell onto his back, and he grimaced each time a new one pierced his scales.

 

Umber had just been trying to get something to eat, but of course, that didn't stop the box from falling from the sky and thwomping him on the head.

 

He did not make that squeak. He didn't. At least, that's what he would tell you.

 

But, in time, Umber wouldn't be embarrassed to tell others of what happened next. In time...

 

He opened his eyes, black spots swirling and twirling through his vision. Then there was was a yellow blob.

 

Well, more of a pale golden SandWing-ish yellow blob.

 

Umber pushed himself to his talons, shaking his body and flaring his wings, pushing off the splinters of broken box and the shiny rocks. A few of them were broken or scratched. Oops, he thought, not actually very sorry at all. The dragon already knew there would be a bruise tomorrow.

 

A talon stepped toward him, of the same calming yellow. His eyes traced up the leg towards a blinking SandWing, whose gaze was cast ruefully downwards at the gems.

 

Umber let out a sigh of content without meaning to. That's what you get for dropping your box of jewels on my face, you smokebreather.

 

"You look like something just fell on you," the SandWing remarked a moment later, not aware of what he had just done.

 

Umber felt his talons clench, his wings lock, and his eyes go wide. A bolt of electricity shot down his spine, and those small, shaky words written on his left wing burned painfully. He opened his mouth numbly, trying to think of the right words to say.

 

"What?" was his dumb whisper.

 

In Umber's defence, how were you supposed to react when you've met your soulmate?

#RememberTheLost

Chapter Two: Meeting and Cleaning

 

Qibli sighed, looking at the shards of jewels scattered on the ground. The dark brown and amber MudWing was hissing in pain, rubbing his head. Qibli took a step forward and cleared his throat. "You look like something just fell on you."

 

The MudWing went stiff and briefly, Qibli wondered if he'd done something wrong. The beginnings of a bruise were beginning to form just above the brown dragon's right eye. He barely caught the stricken whisper: "What?"

 

"Well, something did fall on you, are you alright?" Qibli asked, concerned now.

 

"What?" the MudWing whispered again, this time teeth gritted. It was then Qibli noticed the searing pain on his jaw and the crackling electric feeling that echoed across his back. He remembered now.

 

"Oh."

 

"Oh?"

 

"So... um... I'm Qibli, one of Queen Thorn's guards and workers," Qibli introduced, "And I'm very sorry I dropped a box of jewels on your head."

 

The MudWing stared at him skepticly. "Alright. I'm Umber and I feel like really, really hating you for not paying attention and dropping things on me but I won't because-" Qibli noticed the pause. He knew he wasn't meant to, but he did. "-you're my soulmate and hating each other would not work."

 

"Yeah. That's true," Qibli replied, thinking. So I have a male soulmate. I probably jinxed it or something.

 

Umber seemed to know what he was thinking. "I-I mean, we don't have to be romantic soulmates or anything, I'd be fine with that, but, uh - I'm making you uncomfortable, aren't I? I'm sorry."

 

"We'll see," Qibli answered, studying the sturdy MudWing. That was what he would've imagined for anyone who had the same gender as their soulmate, but could it be different? "You can accompany me back to Thorn's Stronghold and we can talk on the way there. But first... you're going to help me clean all this up." Umber sighed and nodded.

 

"Alright," the MudWing agreed, looking down at the shiny rocks, entering his own thoughts.

 

Umber had a history of being gay.

 

Umber was very, very gay.

 

Finding out his soulmate was a guy was probably the best thing that happened that day. And finding out Qibli wasn't going to be romantically invested was probably one of the worst.

 

The worst thing today was getting hit in the head with a crate of gems, if you were wondering.

 

Scooping up the damaged jewels was mildly painful, scraping the palms of his talons and all. But it was better than having them fall from the sky, and for that, Umber was grateful.

 

Umber cradled the crystals in his talons, lifting into the air, following after Qibli.

 

Qibli was staring at the ground quietly, and Umber saw his eyes flit around the scenery below.

 

Even if they were only going to be platonic and that would be disappointing, Umber still wanted to know his soulmate. The dragon who would be the biggest 'what-if' of his life...

 

The dark brown MudWing looked at Qibli, tracing the sharp diamonds on his back, the freckles on his snout, the scar interrupting them. He couldn't help it, Qibli was just so... lovely to look at.

 

"So, uh, Qibli..." but the words died in Umber's throat as the SandWing turned around and looked at him. His eyes were a brilliant shade of amber, and very, very, very pretty, Umber noted. "...You work for Queen Thorn?"

 

Qibli looked proud, grinning. "I don't just work for her. I'm her guard, her number-one dragon. She's amazing."

 

"Oh. I just live with my siblings..." Qibli seemed to recoil slightly at the word and Umber inwardly frowned. "Do you have any family?"

 

The pale golden SandWing's snout scrunched up and he glared at the ground. "A brother and sister. But I'm with Thorn now, and my friends. I don't need them."

 

Umber decided not to press the issue due to the sudden change in the mood of the conversation. "Well, I've got four. I'm the youngest. There's Sora, Marsh, Reed, Pheasant..." Umber did his best to swallow the bile in his throat, but the words still came out in a repressed whimper. "A-and there was Crane..."

 

"You okay?"

 

"Y-Yeah, it's just that Crane w-was..."

 

"You don't have to talk about it, Umber, I get it."

 

He looked to his talons, clenching them, trying to blink away the small tears in his eyes. Qibli was kind enough to not mention it again.

 

"Well, I've got some friends. I guess they're kind of like a family. Moonwatcher, who's a NightWing, and Winter, who's an IceWing. They're great, but Winter's so uptight." Qibli let out a bit of a laugh, and Umber couldn't help smiling at the happiness on his face. "But he's fun to tease. I mean - it was kind of funny since they both said my soulmark, but I didn't say theirs. Moon's super secretive and wouldn't even show me her soulmark, but it wasn't me, that's for sure. And, well, Winter's going to have one heck of a soulmate. Thorn's basically my mom, but I've already talked about her.

 

"Sometimes I think that Winter or Moon could've been my soulmate in another life. But, well, I guess that's you."

 

Qibli was grinning now, the pure happiness evident. Umber had the fleeting hope that Qibli could talk about him in the same eager, excited way he was talking right now to Winter and Moon.

 

But that wouldn't happen.

 

At least, not the way Umber wanted it to.

Chapter 3: Just Friends

 

Alt. Title: He's just Umbro

 

 

 

"Umber!" came the familiar voice of a certain SandWing. Qibli's pale amber eyes were inches from Umber's own.

 

Umber blearily opened his eyes and jumped, banging his head against Qibli's. "Hey! That hurt!" Qibli groaned, rubbing his forehead with a talon.

 

"Payback," Umber huffed. He had spent the past eleven days hanging out with Qibli. Deciding he would send a letter home so his siblings wouldn't worry about him, Umber had crashed at the SandWing Stronghold, where Qibli lived.

 

Although, they had come to an unspoken agreement to not tell anyone about being soulmates - they had a feeling it would make it unreasonably uncomfortable, always explaining to new dragons and all. So Umber was just Qibli's friend and it was left at that.

 

Qibli shook himself out and stretched out his wings. "I made plans for you to meet Moon and Winter. Moon's going to bring one of her friends."

 

Umber tilted his head. "Winter better prepare his shiny scales, then. I'll need something to block my eyes, though. I don't want to go blind."

 

"Ha, ha, very funny, Umber," Qibli snorted. He was usually the one to make sarcastic comments, and Umber had adapted to the playful banter. "Now, seriously, Moon said she would be there early and we need to leave."

 

Umber sighed and stood up. "Alright. Let's get going. Here's to Miss Mysterious and Mister Shiny."

 

Qibli grinned. "I'm going to tell them you call them that."

 

"What? No! Don't!"

 

The morning air was more chilled than usual, but Umber welcomed the cool air into his lungs. It was better than the usual heat that scorched the desert. The silence was comfortable, but Umber wanted to let a thousand words spill from his mind. So, the MudWing kept his mouth shut and enjoyed the peaceful wind rushing by his ears and the slow wingbeats every once in a while.

 

"Qibli!" Moonwatcher called, waving a talon as the aforementioned SandWing and Umber landed on the meeting place - a mountain called Jade Mountain. Qibli smiled and gave the NightWing a friendly hug.

 

"This is my friend, Umber," Qibli introduced for him. Umber smiled lightly, eyes turning towards the smaller dragon beside Moon. She was a RainWing, but at the moment, her scales fizzled from yellow to rosy pink, with splashes of pale blue around her face.

 

Moon nodded to Umber and then said, "This is Kinkajou. She wanted to meet some of my friends, so I let her come."

 

Kinkajou beamed, the pale blue being overtaken by pink and yellow. "Hi! It's super nice to met and and - hey! Someone else!" Qibli turned to look behind him, seeing the white and icy blue dragon land.

 

"Hey, Winter," Qibli greeted, grinning in a mischievous way. "I brought this big guy - his name is Umber." Qibli gave Umber a side hug with a wing and Umber went stiff, trying to push away the blush that crawled over his face.

 

Kinkajou's scales blossomed pink and magenta, each color appearing and taking over the other. Her legs bubbled into bright yellowy rose. 

 

Moon let out a laugh, following Kinkajou's awestruck gaze to Winter, who seemed to be internally scoffing - was probably thinking something along the lines of RainWings can't hide anything.

 

Kinkajou bouncing on her talons toward Winter, her face coming much too close to Winter's face, "Your scales are shiny!" she announced, still beaming.

 

"Your scales are undignified," Winter huffed, rolling his eyes haughtily before freezing. His talon reached for his neck, covering it as he stuttered in a way that was itself quite undignified.

 

Kinkajou let out a gasp and a giggle. "Woah!" she smiled wide, "Moon, that's what my nose says, right?!"

 

Moon nodded, and Kinkajou gasped again. "My soulmate is so sparkly!" She jumped at Winter, throwing her wings over him.

 

Winter was shaking, his scales felt warm and cold all at once. The look on his face was enough to know he did not like being hugged. It was unnatural.

 

There was a little voice that told him he felt warm needed to be frozen to death immediately. It was not okay. What would his parents think?! A non-IceWing soulmate, and a RainWing no less?!

 

But Winter brought his wings up and carefully patted them onto Kinkajou. 

 

Qibli couldn't contain his laughter, "Aww, Winter's so cute with his new soulmate."

 

And Umber thought, Qibli's pretty cute. Not with me, though. Apparently.

 

He didn't catch the concerned look Moon gave him, but heard her speak up. "Well, we have soulmates to celebrate!"

 

Soulmates to celebrate... Umber sent a sideways glance to Qibli, who was looking right back at him, a playful glint in his eyes.

 

The friends did celebrate by catching a deer and collecting fruit (for Kinkajou). It wasn't exactly a feast, but it was fun and Umber was glad Qibli took him with him.

 

After the others left, the last of the sun was just disappearing. Qibli turned to Umber, all joking gone from his expression, his lovely, amazing eyes piercing through Umber.

 

Over the last two weeks, Umber had imagined Qibli and himself being in love with each other. The fairytale way, where Qibli would realize how silly it was to be friends, and that Umber was just handsome and he couldn't bear them being apart. He'd imagined it just like this. Qibli would turn to him, and would say 'Umber, it's been amazing, this last week. I know how you feel, and I feel the same.'

 

Qibli opened his mouth, and instead, he said: "Umber, we need to talk."

 

"Talk?" Umber asked, mouth suddenly dry.

 

Qibli sighed. "About being soulmates."

 

"...Oh. Yeah, alright. What about it?" Umber was dreading whatever Qibli was about to say.

 

"Just hear me out, alright?" Qibli asked, not meeting Umber's worried gaze. He took the silence as a yes and continued. "I know how you feel about me but I just can't feel the same."

 

Umber swallowed his will to cry.

 

"I just - I don't want to be leading you on into a false hope or something, alright? So we're just friends. We won't be anything more than friends."

 

Umber dug his talons into the ground. "Sure. We're just friends." Maybe one day... no. No, Umber. Just stop thinking like that and stop doing it forever.

My general rule of thumb is that I hate all WoF fanfiction with all of my being, but this fanfiction is the exception to that rule.  Great job.
