Quickies And One-Shots - Come At Me, Bro! by LJ-Phillips Quickies And One-Shots - Come At Me, Bro! by LJ-Phillips
I decided to be a bit more ambitious for this Quickies And One-Shots. Went for a panoramic high-fantasy setting....and a jocky dragon.

Well, a drake since true dragons are believed to be extinct in the world of Smoke, Fur And Stone.

Plus we get to see Quartz at his...Quartz-iest. Come hell or high-water, he intends to do his job.

I almost feel sorry for the drake.

That made my week :) You actually succeeded in making me feel bad for the poor drake. 

"What, so it's my fault that the nosy little buggers were messing around with Daddy's binoculars, is that it?"

I'm on the drake's side there. Quartz is lucky that he didn't eat the nosy little monsters.  

"More altitude...?  Look, I'd just out-competed six other males, six, and then I had a demanding she-drake expecting that I step up, and you want me to fly higher?"

:lol: Guess there's no such thing as Tindr for drakes and she-drakes. 

Come on, she expected me to sing her the Song of New Life, not read her the damned riot act!  She'd have torn my head off!  As it was, I didn't quite hit that last note, she left damned bruises for that..."

As usual, you paint a vivid picture with dialogue. It's probably just as well that the males don't have to build the nest or she-drakes would probably rip the substandard ones apart like some species of birds. The nests, I mean. Not the male drakes. 

"Failing to lodge a flight plan with the relevant authority, and neglecting to wait for clearance before take-off."

You really nailed Quartz's character here. He sounds so reasonable even when enforcing the unreasonable. Thanks as always for the great comment :) For now I've made it a featured comment but maybe at a later stage (and with your permission), I'll get a chance to submit it to the group on your behalf.

That dialogue came from a brain that has had to try to deal with ridiculous rules and regs on too many occasions.  I have a mental picture now of that drake writing furious letters to the papers about the heavy hand of The Law.  He might even get some friends together and they can stage a fly-over, possibly in formation spelling out something rude.  Because that's what I'd do if I could fly, I'd get friends together and zoom around spelling out four-letter words in the sky over the houses and workplaces of people who'd annoyed me.  Either that, or flying low, towing a banner making slanderous statements about their private lives.  Hinting at improper use of pork sausages.

I'm always happy for any of my silliness to be reposted anywhere - it's all about spreading the lulz!
