Songbirds by ToonieCheckers Songbirds by ToonieCheckers



The Chaperone


When he left the town, he was but a child, 
But everyone who meet him would tell you he was wild. 
He traveled far and wide, the child became a man,
Eventually he bought an egg that he named Orion.


After the egg, his home became the fen,
He swore that the cart shall never move again.
The unbound nomad life, he swore that he would toss,
The cart became the favorite place for every type of moss.


A few winters passed, his paws began to ache, 
He longed for better views that he had seen in younger days,
His son he left alone, the child fends for himself, 
But every return promise better books upon their shelf.


Once and for all, he proclaimed to the sky,
Just one more trip, and I will let this madness die.
If he keeps is word, that is left to see, 
But you can never stop a nomad longing to be free.





Couldn't fit his whole song in the comic, so here is the rest of it.

Orion is quite the song bird, being quite proud of his guitar and his growing skills at them. He even has dreams of becoming a bard someday! Most of his songs that he's written so far, is mostly about his dad, Chaperone, and his travels around the world. This one is specificly about his nomad nature. 

Orion also makes a new friend! Another bird named Haruhi, who belongs to Shady-Raichu. Haruhi loves stories of faraway places, so i'm sure she would like his songs. Even if Haruhi, is a horrible singer herself. Orion is quite glad he doesn't have ears.

Now my bird boi can finally get the beak helllll yeahh

Man I spent a lot of time on this.

it was pretty difficult to find a background color where they bought stood out because Orion is so light and haruhi is so dark.
