Dream Time

I’ve got... memory troubles. I go somewhere new and all is fine and dandy, all is exciting and enjoyable, but after it a few hours and it just... slips away. I remember bits. I remember if it was high up, or if it was cold. But was it dry scrub on that mountain, or grass? … Continue reading Dream Time

But often, … Continue reading Howling Winds

Just You Wait

Isn’t he cute? So cute. What an absolute darling. A treasure. Precious. Oh yeah? You wait and see. Just you wait. Call me any more sugary names and I’m gonna eat your shoes. Maybe with your feet still in them, we’ll see. I’m a dragon, I’m not cute! I’m a great and powerful miracle of … Continue reading Just You Wait
