“I don't like to be called crazy. I much prefer the word "original".” - Listener
Listener is GoddessOfCarries' other sona. She is basically the canon-timeline persona of Frosty, who is Goddess's main, more modern sona. This child is not a different "part" of my personality or being, it is just a character that better describes me if I were to stick to the canon more.
Unlike Frosty, she is available for RPing and fanfictions, but please ask for my permission before using her, and give credit where it's due. Do not edit anything else on this page, including grammar and spelling.
Note: Because this is the canon version of herself, not everything on this page matches Frosty's true opinions/traits. In the same way, none of the events in Listener's life are to be believed as real life ones, and neither do all her traits match Frosty's. (although I admit many parts of her character are inspired by various facts about me) Refer to her modern self for that.
Also not to be confused with the canon Listener, my child has nothing to do with a NightWing :P

"I suppose you have a good reason for seeking me out."
“Well, I can tell you, friend, that it doesn't matter how you look on the outside - it's how you feel on the inside.” - Listener
Hybrids. They have become semi-common in Pyrrhia now, and no one longer bothers to turn their heads at the sight of one. But that's because they have never met Listener.
Put together shortly, she probably won't be what you expect out of a LeafWing and IceWing hybrid. She looks like neither tribe, and it's hard to tell that those are her base tribes if you do not inspect her closely enough. Her overall build is slender and she is not very tall in height, although definitely not short either. She still has the IceWing horns behind her head and two sharp, blue-grey main ones, and a row of long spines not unlike her extra horns run down her back. All of her spines are a chilly ice blue, and her underscales are a gradient of silvery-gray and light blue.
Her diamond-shaped scales are pristine and tend to reflect light. Their pale blue color is similar to how the water reflects the frosty sky in the Ice Kingdom. However, this blue is sometimes invisible in a cascade of white when the light meets her scales. Listener has a long tail that resembles an IceWing, but a lot less thinner. Her claws are not fully ridged but enough for her to grab on ice, and she has no trouble with holding a quill. Her face is very smooth and devoid of any extra markings. Her wings are a unique pair - they do not fold down the way IceWing wings do, and neither do they have the slightly rounded characteristics of LeafWings, but they are colored a pale teal-gray and has the webbing of a LeafWing's wings, making them look like two oddly colored leaves. Listener's eyes are probably the most striking feature, being a deep gold which heavily contrasts her pale complexion. Her eyes appear to be light yellow in dim lighting.
Listener likely has more IceWing than LeafWing in her. She can withstand cold temperatures more than a normal dragon, though less than a normal IceWing. She also has frostbreath, albeit one that is not strong enough to kill but enough to temporarily paralyze a dragon where it hits, and her throat suffers no negative effects of exhaling her breath weapon. Her teeth, however, is only suited for chewing prey and is not effective in combat, as they are weak and will most likely cause her more pain than good. She is also physically weak, although average in terms of strength. She has low resistance to diseases and injuries, and often gets into problems which she has to refer to a healer to fix them.
She still has a few notable LeafWing tendencies, such as preferring warm temperatures and drawing energy from sunlight (although not enough to fill her up).
“Look, I will tell you, I'm not a pushover. Well, maybe I once was, but the past is the past.” - Listener
You can use any word but ordinary to describe Listener. She is probably one of the oddest dragons you'll ever see on Pyrrhia, but she is far from unpleasant - in fact, those who do not judge her by her exterior will have rather enjoyable moments with her.
Dragons who've met her would never deem her as "talkative." As her name suggests, the quiet dragon prefers to listen rather than speak herself, and keeps to herself most of the time. When she does enjoy company, she only likes spending time in the presence of one or two dragons at most. When thrust into social situations, Listener is rather clueless as to what to do, to the point where some dragons have suspected her to be mute because she is so silent. She also dislikes loud noises and would often distance herself from the source of these disturbances, which drains her energy and sometimes gives her headaches.
When she speaks, however, you would find that Listener is a very kind and understanding dragon. She is one of the best dragons to talk to when you have a problem, or just when you're feeling down and need emotional support. She'll be happy to provide you both. Despite her quietness, she has a rather positive outlook on life and generally puts on a happy, albeit rather calm and sometimes aloof look. She is also one the best dragons to have around if you want silent company.
The hybrid is undoubtedly wise despite her young age, even though she's humble and admits that she's not the cleverest dragon in Pyrrhia. She would offer surprisingly good advice when you need it, if you're willing to listen. Her poetic words and often dreamy voice sometimes lead dragons to believe that she is lying or just not being serious, but of course they were wrong. Indeed, she likes to keep conversations light and easy, unless it's discussing ideas and concepts, which is also a topic she welcomes. She keeps an informal and lighthearted tone to make herself sound more easygoing and friendly, and it often works. She may seem rather laid back and even lazy, but she's not irresponsible. She just dislikes sticking to a fixed plan, having a live-and-let-live sort of attitude towards most things,
But don't think that a generally happy, quiet dragon is all what Listener is. Beneath the surface lies an insecure soul that feels very deeply, and has many conflicting views about the real world. She sometimes act too selflessly, making others forget that she too needs help and support. Due to her introverted nature and tendencies to isolate herself, she gets lonely after a short period of time, and when she forms a bond with you, she might be a bit clingy and overprotective. It doesn't show, but she is very caring and kind, and because of her empathy that allows her to understand a dragon's emotions better than most, she often feels the pain of others as if it was her own.
She is also sometimes incapable of accepting of the truth, instead retreating to her imagination and falling back to her creativity to escape into a better world of her own. Deep down inside, however, she just wants the world to be a better place, free of war and conflict and everyone's life could just be simpler. She is also sometimes terrified of the darker thoughts she has, even though she knows it's normal for some dragons to have them. Her emotions are so strong that they sometimes have physical side effects on her, for better or worse.
No matter how distanced she is from the norm or how weird she seems, Listener will never disrespect or hurt another dragon our of her own free will. Even if she did so by mistake, guilt and depression will haunt her until she feels like she has made it up to whoever she had wronged. As such, she is very reserved, usually not doing anything too extreme until she feels like it's safe. If she acts more openly around you, you are someone special to her, for it takes a long time for her to trust or even fully feel comfortable around another dragon.
Listener is a terrible liar - mainly because she hates doing so. She is sincere most of the time and prefers to act like herself. As such, she also absolutely hates any unoriginal act .That's not saying she cannot talk her way out of things - in fact, she is very good at it - she just likes to stay herself all the time. The idea of adopting a persona that's not her own seems absurd to her.
Whatever you do, do not deem her as a simple dragon. Listener has long since accepted the fact that she's more different than the others, and has learned to embrace it. If you're close to her, it does yield a lot of pleasant surprises - she often likes to offer loved ones warm surprises. If she loves someone, she'll only love them deeply and unconditionally, no matter what they do to her.
“Life is fragile, beautiful, terrifying and fascinating all at the same time...” - Listener
Listener's life started as normally as any other dragons'. Her egg was born in the Ice Kingdom, in the midst of the war, and due to her mixed genes her LeafWing mother was initially worried that she wouldn't survive the cold temperatures of her homeland, but she was quite wrong. The little dragonet grew up well and fine, although many quickly grew to notice the quiet personality she was developing. Her parents didn't think much of it, as they were both natural introverts as well, and Listener was a single dragonet.
She managed to get into a school just fine, and no one really questioned her about her genetics or weird looks. More often than not, her personality already made her stick out like a sore thumb. The very few friends she managed to have often left her in the end, and she rarely made an effort to communicate to anyone after that. Her intelligence, however, got her through her school rather easily and she could pass most subjects even when other dragonets of her age has trouble with. She managed to stay out of the war, passing on as a normal IceWing to most.
It was in her later years that Listener started to pick up writing as a hobby. Her vivid imagination and powerful language skills made her advance quickly on the path she had almost chosen for herself. It was also at this point where she slowly felt like the Ice Kingdom was no longer her home. Her heart seemed distant and she felt like her calling was elsewhere. At the same time, her parents were deciding to move as her mother figured that the cold temperatures of the north did not suit her tribe's nature. Because none of them had any desire to move away from Pyrrhia to Pantala, the family moved to the northern areas of the Rainforest Kingdom, where they had a large treehouse all to themselves. Her mother was much more at ease here, but that wasn't the same case for Listener. She felt even farther from home than previously, and positively hated the hot and humid weather of the forest. Not to mention the overly talkative and sometimes annoying RainWings in her new school. She did not give up her writing, though, and eventually a few RainWings who were just starting to learn how to read after Queen Glory became their new queen got hold of her written stories. She specializes in romance, something that the forest dragons found enjoyable. In fact, the only good thing about the move to the rainforest was the fact that she got to be more outspoken than when she was young, getting along well with most of the loud dragons there.
It was until then a few little mistakes threw her new life into chaos. RainWings who have picked up rumors about Listener deserted her and left her alone, making her feel like her life was spiraling out of control. Some called her a freak and even attention-seeker, some even falsely accused her of being a "scary animus dragon". She felt even more lonely and estranged than she had before, but there was little she could do. She often tried even harder to disappear into the background, losing herself in the fantasy worlds she creates. She wishes that a dragon would come and fill the empty pit in her heart, one who can accept all her faults and flaws, and appreciate her for who she is.
Her life took a big turn when she was wandering alone one day, searching for ideas and letting the peacefulness of the woods without the presence of another dragon guide her. The loneliness had already almost caved in on her by then, and she was almost at the verge of tears when she found a young dragon of the same age as her, also alone at the edge of the woods, where no noisy RainWing ever wanders. Listener did not display her sadness, and instead tried to converse with the other dragon - which brought immensely positive results. The new dragon, who eventually introduced herself as Lovebird, quickly became friends with Listener due to their matching personalities.
Everything changed after that. Listener still hated the environment, but her life became a whole lot brighter as Lovebird came into it. She slowly fell for the dark dragon, even though she didn't realize it at first. Lovebird became her main source of support, and she, for once, did not feel alone. As the night the dragonets of destiny met the three sisters came, Listener had accepted her friend as part of her life, one that she couldn't live without. They were both present at the scene when Blister and Burn died, and no one bothered to point out their oddities at that moment.
However, Listener was deeply shaken by the effects of war. She paid a few visits to the victims of war after that - even the dragonets of destiny themselves. Some of them were coping well - but those who were not had visibly huge impacts on her. She was terrified at the results of a long war that had raged on for so many years, and took some time to recover from that. She tried to help the victims in any way she can, but the best she could do was to encourage peace and promote love from her stories.
At the same time, her one great source of support, Lovebird had been absent for the most part of this period. Listener needed more help and emotional support than ever, but she wasn't around for her. She was unaware that Lovebird was going through issues of her own. She always thought they never needed to say it, that Lovebird knew, too, that they had an unspoken connection when it came to romance, but she was wrong. When she finally confronted the other dragon, Listener ended up storming off angrily, and felt her heart shatter into many pieces.
“I suppose I don't have many friends. Many seem to think that it's better to avoid me.” - Listener
Comment for your character to be added. Canon OC relationships only! You may also ask to RP with her!
Listener has a great relationship with her father. He was the one who taught her how to control her frostbreath and told her facts about the dominant tribe in her. They share the laid-back and relaxed aspects of their personalities, and often have light conversations here and there. They also often tease her mother about her often obsessive tendencies and make jokes that she wouldn't understand. He also offers her great advice every now and then.
Despite Listener's tendencies to often joke about a few of her mother's quirks, she loves her unconditionally and the feeling is mutual. She admits that she wouldn't have gone through life as smoothly as she did without her, and even now she thinks she is one of the dragons that she values to the core, one that would support her to the end. She thinks she is very lucky to have an open-minded and accepting dragon as a mother, even though they disagree on various subjects.
Listener witnessed the RainWing's ascension to royalty, and is fully supportive of her. Even though she no longer lives near the rainforest, her respect for Glory remains there. She would aid her and her tribe when the time comes, as it had been home for her parents, even if she didn't particularly like it.
“I mean, are you kidding me? Of course I know how to joke.” - Listener
Listener's backstory actually turned out more realistic and in alignment with Goddess's real life than that of Frosty's, her main sona. This is because a few key events in her life are altered and moved to this sona instead.
Lovebird is currently a placeholder name for my one and only uwu
Unlike her modern self, Listener does not dislike water or getting wet, in fact she loves spending her time near bodies of water.
Has a very soft voice, barely audible if she doesn't use force.
Talking too much can easily make her throat sore as she does very little of it, has become more used to it now though. Same goes with yelling.
Does not know how to be cruel, always has second thoughts, needs good reason to do something remotely unkind.
She absolutely loves eating sugary stuff and unlike her modern self, she doesn't get sick easily whenever she does consume something sweet.
Her entire build is weak and frail, even her wings aren't built for flying naturally, but she really enjoys the feeling of the wind against her scales when she does, sometimes flying to clear her mind and to release stress.
Dislikes dragons who pretend to be who they are not.
Cannot sing at all, surprisingly. Does like to do so however, and often hums along.
Will absolutely not kill unless really, really necessary.
She's especially vulnerable when she's sick, both physically and emotionally.
Desires affection only from those she's close to, otherwise she thinks the gesture from total strangers is creepy.
Specializes in writing romance and sad stories, thinks emotional conflict is the selling point of a story.
Incredibly sharp hearing.
She often monologues to herself.
Her name was given to her mainly because she is incredibly good at hearing, she is passive in conversations and she is very observant, able to pick up many details in others' words.
Her wings sometimes appear to be slightly more green in different lighting.
Devastatingly bad at hiding emotions herself. Doesn't like to do so, either.
A true representation of a Huffleclaw, her natural instincts often clashing.
