From the edge of the clearing, Stephan frowns at the sight of his teacher's creation. Dynamic control and articulation. Didn't expect that from a magic ice sculpture. Still, to make it move, it can't be that thick. And he made it a bird, and a big one at that...

"You made it easy." With a quick smirk, Stephan backs up to the point where he is pressed against a tree, eying the icy eagle as it keeps diving straight towards him, gravity drawing it faster in it's descent. As the avian artillery draws near, he rolls behind the tree as the bird still hurtles forward and shatters against the trunk.

"Well it didn't quite act like a real bird, but it's about as sturdy. My compliments on your attention to detail."

"Well considering how we've yet to see the sun over the forest, I would think that we should do more today. However I'd like to wait until after breakfast, if only to make sure I can see everything in the clearing. I already know the kinds of things that come out in the dark, and I wouldn't like to be any more familiar with them."

For Stephan, breakfast was short: just a bit of bread and some water melted from the snow just outside. But the morning was still quite cold, so on his best judgement, Stephan decided to spend the rest of it bundled up considering everything he had seen and done until Gajeel came for him.

"Alright, I think I've given you plenty of time with your thoughts. Why do you always look so sullen?"

... Whatever.

And with his dismissal, Stephan settles back down in the blankets until conditions improve, inside the cabin or out.

Stephan rested comfortably for a time as the blizzard raged on. It was around noon, though, when he was disturbed by a large crashing noise from the side of the cabin. "What was that?"

As Gajeel trudges through the howling blizzard around the corner of his cabin, he is astounded at the sight of a great bird of sapphire plumage atop a snow drift, preening fractured feathers out of it's wings.

"A bird, huh? Well that's ok I guess, but can you shut the door? I know you have fur, but even you have to be freezing in this," Stephan stammers, shivering.

The large, elegant bird flaps up onto it's new perch and continues to preen it's fractured feathers as the cabin grows ever colder, even as the winds outside begin to die down. Stephan can only find another blanket to stave off the bitter chill in the air.

And so time passed, with Gajeel tending the fire, Stephan steadily turning blue, frost forming on every surface away from the stove, and the sapphire bird sleeping on its increasingly icy perch.

As the steam rose about the house, Stephan and Gajeel heard a thud as the bird, now plumed a ruddy brown, fell dead from it's perch in a heap.

"Actually, that does feel quite a bit better. What's with the bird?"

"Here, let me see."

The rust colored bird continued to lay still as Stephan shed the blankets and bearskin and walked over, gently holding his hand over the motionless fowl before gently pressing his palm against it's wing as it's feathers cracked and crumbled at his touch.

"Well I can't be sure, but with the iron colored plumage and how suddenly brittle it is, I'd say this fowl seems to have been steamed from the inside. The curious thing is that the feathers themselves seem to have shriveled up a bit as well, even though feathers normally don't retain water. The iron color would clearly be blood, so even if I would have recognized the bird before, there's no way to tell what it was by looking at it now. Anyway, I guess there's no point in letting this go to... Ummm... How powerful was that spell you used to warm me up?"
