The video of "Eye of the Storm" tells the story of an anonymous airship pilot, whom we see in a very dark, simplified form  deciding in his melancholy to steer his airship into a massive (and possible ether-driven) storm. Throughout the video we see him preparing his craft, setting it on "autopilot", and saying goodbye to his one companion- a dragon. 

 

Write a description of the scene and include some dialogue between the pilot and his dragon, using punctuation for direct speech.
