#AtoZChallenge: Dragons

D

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. Β It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. Β πŸ™‚

 

Dragons are the creature of the day. They are depicted as animals with reptilian or serpentine traits. The dragon is featured in many cultures. The main ones are the European dragons (European Folklore, Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies), and the Chinese dragon with counterparts in Japan (Japanese dragon), Korea and other East Asian countries. Dragons are one of the few supernatural creatures I like. I’ve always been fascinated by the mystery of them.

They are featured in movies such as The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

  1. Love Dragons, but have never played the game. My son had an imaginary Dragon called Max, I gave him Max as a protector during the night – Max helped keep the other monsters away!

        Saw it last night! Oh my giddy gosh! Spectacular! The voice! Dark deep dangerous. Perfect!

  2. Smaug is an awesome dragon, as are the ones in Game of Thrones, too! I used to love the dragon in Ivor the Engine, but you’re too young to remember that. πŸ˜‰

  3. I’m such a geek. Ask me anything about dragons, ANYTHING, and I can totally tell you the answer. I tend to shun my high fantasy roots because they’re a little too red. (You know, the same color hair as every fantasy heroine EVER.) πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi Crystal,
      Dragons are great. I’m the same way about the show Supernatural. I can tell you in most cases the episode title, etc. and that’s with almost 195 episodes done. πŸ™‚

  4. My favourite dragon will always be Mr. Dragon from the classic Mac game The Manhole. It’s just not the same in the modern, updated colour version. Mr. Dragon, and the other characters, lost a lot of their charm, whimsy, and surrealism.

  5. Dragons are such cool fantasy creatures. They can be frightening and deadly or catlike and playful. Dragons make awesome stories even better.

    1. Dragons are great. I have a copy of Cat’s Confidence. Haven’t gotten to read it yet.:)
      I have an idea brewing for a future project that may have to involve dragons as well as elves. πŸ™‚
