Farewell to Dragons

Melli says that today is to be the last day of our dragon quest. She said we were to set all our dragons free, so here goes!

European Dragon

European Dragon

The European dragon prefers living in deep dark caves in high mountains, and rarely steps into the light of day. They hunt at night. If you ever see one, it is best to pretend you haven’t. Though most dragons don’t bear a grudge against human-kind, they do remember why they must now live in darkness and are almost extinct. If a dragon ever thinks you got a good look at it, it will take steps to see that you never tell. You won’t like those steps.

Gargoyle Dragon

Gargoyle Dragon

The Gargoyle Dragon lives in crowded cities all over the world. They grace the tops of old buildings by day, and hunt in the concrete canyons by night. Their favorite prey is solitary drunks. I you are going drinking in the city, do not walk the streets alone at night. (That’s good advice for other reasons, as well.)

Miniature Dragon

Miniature Dragon

The Miniature Dragon is a jokster and a trouble-maker. Have you ever tripped when there was nothing to trip on? Chances are, you tripped over the tail of a Miniature Dragon. And chances are, it wasn’t an accident. Miniature Dragons are mostly see-through, and impossible to spot unless one looks directly at them. A relative of the little fella in this diagram recently broke into my home, trashed my library and stole my copy of Dragonology. I can’t help but wonder if Dr. John might have had a little something to do with the robbery. He was quite distressed that I still had a copy of the diary.

Okay, Melli, I let my dragon’s go. If they eat somebody, remember, you asked for it!

Oh, and speaking of asking for things, if you’re in the mood for another challenge, come by here anytime after midnight Saturday night (Hawaii time) and my new photo challenge — also running just one week — will be posted.

I you want to know what time midnight Saturday night, Hawaiian time, is in your part of the world, ask the World Clock.
