clevergirlhelps:

  • Size. Dragons are normally 40-100 ft. long, which is considerably bigger than your 5-6 ft. body. A dragon needs to be aware of their surroundings because it will be much easier for them to break or disturb things. Whether the dragon actually cares about what it destroys is up to you, but a dragon certainly wouldn’t want to plow into trees or fall off a cliff. Also, a dragon’s size means that any impact it makes is more likely to seriously injure it. It’s related to why elephants only run at great need - if they fall over or trip, there’s a serious possibility that they will fatally injure themselves. This goes double if your dragons are like birds and have hollow bones.
  • Abilities. If your dragon has wings and flies, remember that there is space above and below the dragon. Humans are used to watching things at eye level, so sometimes it’s hard to shift to above and below as well. If the dragon breathes fire, you may want to explain how that feels or how the dragon does it. You don’t spontaneously spit without thinking about it - you need to squeeze the saliva out of your glands, gather enough saliva to spit, and then consciously make the decision to spit. What I’m trying to say is that you can’t just say a dragon “spat fire”. That dragon is doing something to spit fire and ye shall explain.
  • Personality. Pretty self-explanatory. Give dragons unique personalities and don’t lump them into a monolithic race category.
  • instincts. Dragons should not have the same social structure or ideals or morality as humans. The most the two races share should be broad similarities, like interest in storytelling or having a complex language. Dragons have no need for houses furnished similarly to human houses or a nuclear family. Factor in how a dragon’s biology works and what its surroundings are like and how predatory instincts affect them to create a distinct dragon culture.

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS.

This Thursday, Scotland votes for its independence.

The BBC is trying to report that Yes to Independence is losing. They’re using photos to imply our gatherings are tiny and insignificant instead of the many photos like those above. They’re reporting that an anti-independence march by the Orange Order (think the KKK with more British flags) was a peaceful pro-union family march. They have been caught editing clips to discredit our First Minister.

There is a protest outside BBC headquarters right now. They are claiming there are a maximum of 350 protesters.

Watch for yourself. There are far more people outside their offices right now and they are being ignored and misreported.

We need to be seen. The only way we’ve been able to disseminate accurate information has been through social media. The media we rely on to spread unbiased information is lying to us, trying to suppress us.

PLEASE SHARE. PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS. WE NEED OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.

this website is very american-centric. please, we need to be heard. please pay attention.

this is a whole country’s FUTURE.
