People often ask me, why I am so obsessed with dragons? So I'm gonna list some of my reasons here. Dragons play a big part in fantasy, and there are many different things you can do with dragons. Also, people from different places have different images of dragons in thier minds, so the way an american imagines a dragon is very different from the way an asian does.

There are as well, many varied dragons: fire dragons, ice dragons. water dragons, earth dragons, magic dragons, small dragons, large dragons, stupid dragons, wise dragons, dragons that fight humans, dragons that work together with humans...etc. I can likely list at least one book that has each kind of dragon I've mentioned. Heck, I could probably list several!

I have a very active imagination, and I have a tendency to make little stories in my head, and most of them never see the light of day, and quite a few them feature dragons. I could write one right now!

She peered over the edge of the crater, and shook her head. "The ground seems very far down from here." She said to her rider anxiously. It was their first flight and the dragon was having second thoughts. "Oh, come on, Mage," her rider chided, "it's not that far, and if you drop there will be someone to catch you. You were really excited this morning." Mage sneezed. "That was this morning," she whined, "this is now, and I'm scared." Her rider snorted in disgust. "Look at all the other dragonets, they seem to be having a fine time." he gestured at the rest of the group, whose dragons were whooping and doing loop-de-loops. Her rider then decided to switch tactics. "You're not going to let Jode outdo you, are you?" Jode was the one simbling who canstantly got under Mage's skin. There was a "friendly rivalry" between them, though now it wasn't very friendly. Mage caught a glimpse of Jode winging by, his teeth bared in a mocking grin. "Absolutlely not!" she roared. She spread her wings and jumped off the ledge. As she jumped a thermal drifted up beneath her, and she soared. "Woohoo!" her rider cried. "That's it Mage! I knew you could do it!" She smiled, it had been easy after all, what had she been scared of? She went swooshing after Jode, thinking "Let's see if he smirks now!"

Okay...that was actually pretty long for me, and I came up with that in the spur of the moment. But the problem is, that I can't keep it flowing for long, and then I end up thinking it needs work and I lose interest. Whatever. Oh yeah, and there are people who ask me, in a condescending tone, "You DO know dragons aren't real right?" Yes, I do know that, I might be crazy, but I'm not completely insane. Oh, and by the way, I apologize for not having posted in a week, been busy. Till next time, whic hopefully won't be so late, So long!
