In grade school I discovered the Dragonriders of Pern series. As an adult, I had the great privilege of supervising the copyediting (sub-editing, for any Brits) of one or two of Anne McCaffrey's later books.
One day her acquiring editor wandered the office asking for story ideas. Since the author had begun milking her franchise a little hard (talking dolphins, and an over-two-thousand-year-old computer that talks without being bricked by endless OS updates), I suggested "The Ferns of Pern," in which the grass becomes chatty in the spirit of the Gaia hypothesis. She never asked me for a story idea again.
My current position in my LARP group is High Priestess of the Dragon Temple . I was appointed to this position after she visited my home . In my D&D group , my character is , "dragon-born ." I've been working at converting my scooter into a dragon for events such as Sci/Fi Cons .
Dragons of all kinds are neat. I love how creative the designs can get from realistic type to the more ethereal godly kinds. Though they're generally more interesting when they come with some sort of lore to flesh out their existence.
The Dragons from the Dark Souls series were always cool primordial beings. Darkeater Midir being my favorite. Tamed by Gods the fight the abyss, you can see how he has slowly over the millennia been corrupted by it yet still remain incredibly powerful.
Well the scariest dragons were in Atari Adventure. When eaten permanently placed in purgatory in the stomach of the dragon. Reducing the view of the world to being scooped up and transported by an even scarier bat. Whose jealously for anything that one would be in possession of would cause a chase. I digress, I have been being digested for decades.
