Paraskevidekatriaphobia Egg

There's nothing about this egg that is out of the ordinary - it's of an average size, an inoffensive shade of grey, and it fits in with its siblings as comfortably as any day fits into the week… and yet something about it is just a little, well, off. Maybe it's the too-sleek curve of its sides, washed in stony shades? Or its broad, bulbous bottom, where the grey is more of an asphalt colour? But it's really just ordinary, isn't it? How can an egg possibly be foreboding?

Owe Me An Egg

To start, this egg is just a little bit oblong, shaped in such a way that it's got extreme bottom-heaviness and comes almost to a point up at its definite 'top.' Some eggs can roll comfortably and be turned every which-way, but not this one — it gives the impression both that it was unpleasant to clutch and that perhaps its dam has to push it rather than roll it across the sand. The elegant sheen of color and texture makes up for any demerit it might suffer for being oddly shaped: it is coated in deep caramel brown, with haphazard but attractive swirls and swaths of frothy beige. Its darker undertones shine slightly when they catch the light, smooth to the eye and touch, where the lighter features have almost an uneven raising, a look as if they'd be bubbly under one's fingertips.

Forward or Die Egg

Is it possible for something as innocuous as an egg to be annoying? This one is smooth, a little on the large side, but there's nothing overtly offensive about it - well, save for the gaudy bright scribbles on its white sides. But even they cant be considered truly offensive. They're just colours, smattered in bold, italic, sans-serif splashes and stripes. Cyan, green, pink, magenta and black at the apex, swirling around the eggs round shell in a somewhat orderly pattern, as if they're forming neat lines. The lower those colours go, though, the more urgent they seem to become - bigger, brighter, a Flash of red flickering and blinking. Down here, those seemingly random markings might even start to look like words and they might just be telling you to share this egg with as many people as possible for a lifetime of good luck.

Shattered Shards Egg

Cool silver encapsulates a smooth ovoid of stunningly simple flavor. No bubble, nor bump mars this metallic sphere, the illusion of a reflective space facing the viewer. Only once rolled over from where it rests upon the sands do the imperfections manifest. Hairline cracks form a delicate spiderweb of connections outwards from where the egg sits. So real, yet they somehow do not impact the integrity of the egg. An unwary hand against that silvery facade will find sharpness where the black will lines cross.

Cuprum Curse Egg

This particular egg seems to have forgotten that eggs ought to be smooth. Bumpy and dimpled, the egg has more in common with the surface of an orange than that of any self-respecting dragon egg. Bright copper shines cheerfully upon the highest of ridges, reflecting light joyfully and enticing the viewer to touch. Deep within canyons flashes of a dirty green linger, oxidization showing the bitter side of joy.

One Smart Cookie Egg

Were one hungry enough, this egg might be might be seen as crisply golden-brown. Honeyed tones curve across the surface to where two perfectly caramelized edges meet but its just an illusion, right? Because a crack cannot exist in a viable egg. Not yet anyway. On the underside, shadowed hues of summer wheat mimic a fold, but again, it must be a trick of the eyes, for the shell, a sugary gleam glinting in the play of the light, is whole and unblemished.

Upside Down Egg

White filigree stretches in uneven stripes across a shell marbled in cream and pale pink, with the occasional odd-one-out splotch of orange and blue. Its texturing is interesting, the lacelike pattern raised up just slightly, for fingertips or the edge of a dragon's snout to find distinct. This egg's mystery is not in how it looks, though, but how it balances … how exactly does it sit like that? Upside Down Egg lives up to its name in an extreme — from the moment it is laid it settles the wrong way up, with the smaller, more pointed end on the bottom and the wider smooth side up. It seems as if the dragonet inside has shifted its weight the wrong way around, existing in a pre-hatching limbo of topsy-turvy.

Flock of Fate Egg

It's black. At first blush, it seems like that is all there is to it — black. Black and shiny, if the light catches it a certain way, but nonetheless black. Only a closer glance — or a more careful inspection, as those with keen eyes may see from gallery heights — will reveal that other colors are present on the smooth and oddly reflective shell. Placed haphazardly, a few sparkling spots of silver and one toward the bottom in pale blue, bright prizes for the discerning eye to find.

Not Your Typical Scapegoat Egg

Is this tapered and lopsided egg's shell too soft? From a distance it seems that way and on top of that it sports no flashy colorings or markings. In fact it almost blends into the sands themselves and would too if it didn't look so… hairy? What is wrong with this egg? Hues of off white, beige, grays and taupe all gather together on this egg in a seemingly chaotic manner with no rhyme and reason until one approaches closer. Then the shell certainly looks tough enough and the colors now take on a textured look, coarser where the strokes are longer nearest the wide and lopsided base, softer where they are minutely blended near the narrower tip. How odd this egg is… and should it be disturbed?

Eggsplosive at Best Egg

Contradicting in a startling contrast of colors, this medium sized egg stands out even if half buried in sand. Dark is its shell, like the deepest of pure black night and broken only by the bright, rich reds that pepper that darkness like many pinpoints of light. From far it's difficult to make out clear details but up close the red against black takes shape. The smallest of red splotches are grouped and clustered as though to make the impression of the leaves of a tree, with bold streaks of black between as the branches and trunks. Larger circular shapes of red, streaked with orange and yellow in the centre give the image of shaded flame, safely contained and glowing with a comfortable warmth. The egg certainly seems inviting and safe… but perhaps that's the lure and trap?
