Good Neighbours

Some folks complain of noisy neighbours, but ours are lovely. And they’re very polite, too, popping around to say hello when the windows are open. Sometimes they get a bit lost and wander in, but they soon find their way out again. It’s real pretty having the plants growing up the walls like this, and … Continue reading Good Neighbours

Good Times

I lose track of the years that have passed, and all that happened within them. It’s easy to grow nostalgic at this time of year, and to worry that we’ve not done enough, or broken the promises we made to ourselves, or that we’ve let things slide away. Maybe those things have happened, but it … Continue reading Good Times


When the night stretches on forever, just like this, and the ice spreads to the edges of the world, like it does now, I feel... very odd. What is this world? Does it have an edge? What’s beyond it?

You want adventure? I’m your girl. I’ll throw you through the clouds faster than you’d have thought possible. Like an arrow, like a hawk, we zip and weave and loop and soar, and you’d better hold on for dear life if you don’t wanna meet that forest head on. Have I dropped anyone? A few, … Continue reading Only The Brave

Despite how frequently we may see it in arts and crafts, red dragons are actually rather rare. It’s a bold colour, too bold for hunting beasts, and sadly prized for its appearance by illegal traders. Mature dragons typically grow earthy colours to their scales; moss greens and sandy yellows and cool, angular greys. Blue is … Continue reading Red For Danger

Into Winter

Winter is a hard season for babies of all sorts, but some dragon eggs crack apart in the deepest cold of the year, pulling cosy hatchlings into a pale world of ice and hunger. Hatchlings this size need very little to survive and grow, so when the spring does come and the world awakens, the … Continue reading Into Winter

Winter Blues

A dragon pup is especially susceptible to seasonal illnesses in its first winter. While they don’t feel the cold as others might, it can still sap their strength and slow their bodies, which is why many pups wear adorable knitted garments when playing outdoors for their first few winters. If a pup gets sick, just … Continue reading Winter Blues
