Untitled idea (Crow/dragon)
time: Current day – Afternoon
Place: Country Side – Farm land
Scene: Farm house/barn, old looking but still lived in.
???? = standard if smart crow in our world, able to shape shift in alternate world into a human form. Battle worn look both as crow and human. Considers himself girls protector and friend. Missing left eye.
???? = Girl, in her teens on summer break from school. Keeps ???? as pet. Simple outlook to life but caring and willing to help friends.
Crow disappears for days at a time, but girl has gotten used to this behavior. She notices he sometimes comes back with wounds and damage, and helps nurse him back to health each time.
One day she just happens to be looking out a window of the house when she sees Crow suddenly dive from the sky, aiming for the tree in the front yard. She lets out a gasp as Crow does not pull up as the tree nears. She watches as Crow appears to hit the tree, but then passes through and into it to disappear.
Girl does not know what to make of it, and spends the next few days inspecting the tree, trying to figure out where Crow went. On the third day the Crow shows back up, coming out of the tree as if stepping out of water, only to flutter to the ground bleeding. Girl rushes to crow and helps mend him once again, but now has many questions she has no answer for.
Crow knows he was seen leaving the tree, and has spoken with girl before in the manner of all crows, by making one or two word 'imitations' for the girl. It always made her laugh when he did. But this time he must speak to her in a way she would understand, for he was at his limit and would need her help soon.
Crow surprises Girl by speaking normally, asking for her help. In the world he travels to, Humans have disappeared and no longer inhabit the world. Their downfall came from something the crows simply call the dragon. An etheral creature that can mimic other creatures appearance to draw its prey in, then feeds on them, for the crows of that world are easily fooled by the creatures magic. In this case it imitates humans, for in the past Crows and Humans of the world were close at one time.
In this world magic of sorts also exists in a physical form, able to be manipulated to achieve certain affects. With it the crows can change themselves into human forms, to better interact with the remains of human civilization when they need to, including trying to fight the dragon.
Future idea scene: Girl has made it to the alternate earth. She just happens to be there as the dragon is making it's first ploy to attack as ghostly human children wander around calling for help. A local group of crows flys in and changes into human form, just as the ghostly children collapse to the ground. The Crow/humans rush to their aid, trying to help them, lured in by the dragons magic blinding them to the reality of the situation.
CROW is with girl, and instantly changes into human form, and runs over to start kicking and pushing the crow/humans, yelling at them that it was a trick, even as the ghostly forms start grabbing at the crow/human forms. Those that are grabed start to wilt where they are touched, their life-force being sucked away quickly and turning them into dried out husks.
A short battle ensues, with some of the dragonforms going after GIRL. It is at this point CROW tries to come to her rescue, only to find that in her frightend state unknowingly draws on the power available in this world, surrounding herself with a glow that burns the dragonforms as they get close.
