Do not mock the humble survey

Avet... has found herself annoyed. She has only one form. This isn't the problem, but this is what led to her noticing the problem. There is no way to preview what a dragon will look like. There are species books of birds and bugs and animals - but some of them are sub-par on noting where the dragon's colors go, and miscellaneous gods that she doesn't worship help you if you want to see what your color will look like on the form.

She is going to solve this problem. By taking some surveys. As in, grab photo paper, gather up a list of lines to go visit, and then knock on some doors and ask some questions and create a book series that organizes all possible forms, all known forms, what known lines look like in the forms - that sort of thing.

She starts with blue groups, because blue groups have the most available forms - she's gotten all of the big lines (well, all of the big lines that gave her the time of day) and is on the smaller ones. The ones with only one or two people. Or, in some cases, none.

This particular one's easier than some others; she doesn't need to fly to another country. It's Esmaar. She flies to the address of one 'Avar,' no line name. Apparently he had one and had some kind of explosive spat about it and gave it up. Not that it's her business. He's just another person for her survey.

She knocks on his door.

A red girl, maybe a hundred seventy, opens the door. She looks at Avet's hair. She frowns. "What?"

The red girl smiles thinly. "The dragon in this household's upstairs. You want me to get him for you?"

The red shren smirks. "Sure. Survey me."

"Go for it." Finnah poses.

Finnah shifts. The red is a splash along her wings and a dab of it at the crest, more intense than a real female cardinal.

"Yeah, sure. HEY AVAR HEY MIAL WANT TO TAKE A SURVEY?"

A tiny silver-and-brown merlin zips down the stairs and, lacking a convenient perch, turns human.

"A survey about what?" he inquires.

(Avar follows somewhat more sedately and without turning into a bird.)

"What forms you have," Finnah says. She preens a feather and then shifts back. "She took pictures."

"You can take pictures of me if you like," shrugs Mial. "I'm not sure how much good it'll do you. Shren parunia with a potion-derived growth disorder, it'd take some interesting circumstances to come up with somebody whose forms turn out just like mine. Also, the word you're looking for is 'dragonish', although I'm a little surprised that you're looking for it."

It's not a Draconic word, though, it's a Leraal neologism - e'sisaak.

"Draconic has a problem with shrens," he says. "Anyway, your survey?"
