Dragons – the masters from the shadows

Dragons are absolutely fabulous creatures that one should not to underestimate or ignore, because what you underestimate dominates you…

Dragons are entities that “live” and develop among us since ancient times. They were both adored and blamed, fascinated and terrorized.

We find them in almost all civilizations in various forms and having the most varied roles, but we also find their representation in a lot of cities in the world, thus giving them in a way the value they deserve, although lately the world considers them mythical creatures and that’s it.

In Asian countries, dragons are a symbol of wisdom, intelligence, cunning, they are carriers of the four elements – water, air, fire, earth, they look more like a giant snake, without wings, but that does not stop them from traveling through the air;

 In the West they are a symbol of power, of victory in battle, of tenacity, we find them on coats of arms and they are often represented as having several large heads and wings.

We can see them inside and on the facades of many monuments, temples, cathedrals, etc., being considered guardians of sacred places but also of secrets, mysteries, magic and last but not least of dreams.

They are entities with quite heavy and dense energy, lonely and at first sight not very friendly.

To work with dragons, you need to know yourself well enough because it can induce some of the strangest states and you know how to earn its respect.

 They have a brilliant intelligence, a lot of knowledge and wisdom, they can be extremely loyal and loving, but they can also be very aggressive, warriors and vengeful. 

They are impetuous and majestic creatures, despite their size and appearance, they have a lot of elegance, agility in movement, they are perfect strategists and for them honor and truth are essential.

Like angels, there are many types of dragons, water, fire, earth or air, metal, dragons of money, wisdom, speed, healing, sexual, etc. and can have different colors and different numbers of heads.

“I (first part)

Not my best side, I’m afraid.

The artist didn’t give me a chance to

Pose properly, and as you can see,

Poor chap, he had this obsession with

Triangles, so he left off two of my

Feet. I didn’t comment at the time

(What, after all, are two feet

To a monster?) but afterwards

I was sorry for the bad publicity.

Why, I said to myself, should my conqueror

Be so ostentatiously beardless, and ride

A horse with a deformed neck and square hoofs?

Why should my victim be so

Unattractive as to be inedible,

And why should she have me literally

On a string? I don’t mind dying

Ritually, since I always rise again,

But I should have liked a little more blood

To show they were taking me seriously.

II (second part)

It’s hard for a girl to be sure if

She wants to be rescued. I mean, I quite

Took to the dragon. It’s nice to be

Liked, if you know what I mean. He was

So nicely physical, with his claws

And lovely green skin, and that sexy tail,

And the way he looked at me,

He made me feel he was all ready to

Eat me. And any girl enjoys that.

So when this boy turned up, wearing machinery,

On a really dangerous horse, to be honest

I didn’t fancy him. I mean,

What was he like underneath the hardware?

He might have acne, blackheads or even

Bad breath for all I could tell, but the dragon–

Well, you could see all his equipment

At a glance. Still, what could I do?

The dragon got himself beaten by the boy,

And a girl’s got to think of her future.

III (third part)

I have diplomas in Dragon

Management and Reclamation.

My horse is the latest model, with

Automatic transmission and built-in

Obsolescence. My spear is custom-built,

And my prototype armour

Still on the secret list. You can’t

Do better than me at the moment.

I’m qualified and equipped to the

Eyebrow. So why be difficult?

Don’t you want to be killed and/or rescued

In the most contemporary way? Don’t

You want to carry out the roles

What sociology and myth have designed for you?

Don’t you realize that, by being choosy,

You are endangering job prospects

In the spear- and horse-building industries?

What, in any case, does it matter what

You want? You’re in my way.

– Not My Best Side”

― U.A. Fanthorpe

“You see all the other fellows were so active and earnest and all that sort of thing- always rampaging, and skirmishing, and scouring the desert sands, and pacing the margin of the sea, and chasing knights all over the place, and devouring damsels, and going on generally- whereas I liked to get my meals regular and then to prop my back against a bit of rock and snooze a bit, and wake up and think of things going on and how they kept going on just the same, you know!”

― Kenneth Grahame, The Reluctant Dragon

“Jealousy has a way of clouding logic.”

― Alpha Four, Far Forest Scrolls Na Cearcall

“A man’s perspective is limited by the brevity of his existence.

Even living deliberately, how far up can we reach?

Standing on our miniscule patch of time, how far into the future can we see? How much of the past can one truly understand?

Yet, only a recreant spends their precious drops of sand before dropping back

into the abyss lounging in indulgence, not striving for understanding, knowledge,

answers that those of us

scourged/consecrated with consciousness

should seek with unconquerable passion.”

― Alpha Four, Far Forest Scrolls Na Cearcall

“The significance of each change of season is easily buried in the smallest of life’s mundanities and trivialities. Yet, the true consequence of time’s passage is there, blaring within the subtle disguise of a whisper for all who would listen.”

― Alpha Four, Far Forest Scrolls Na Cearcall

“The ender dragon chortled. It sounded like thunder broken across the knee of the world. I am the infinite lightning night-lizard at the end of the universe. I am the master of time and death. The fire of creation is my youngest brother. In my stomach, galaxies churn in cosmic acid and are digested into meaninglessness. ED opened one vast violet eye. You can’t fool me with a pumpkin, ”

“My parents are worried about me, so they take me to a lady, so I can talk about my dragon. She says she knows about dragons like mine.

She looks me in the eye and for some reason I don’t feel like I have to look away.”

“You’re going to eat yourself alive. Like Draakuna who bit off his own tail, and finding that he tasted very good, quickly devoured the rest of himself.

I really hoped that was some sort of dragon legend and not something true. It sounded awful.

No more awful than what you’re doing to yourself. Set it aside. Raise your chin high. You are Amel Leafbrought, rider of Raolcan the Purple. Your value does not lie in your leg.”

“No, I wasn’t going to think about that. I didn’t think about it through the long hours of flight. I didn’t think about it as the sun came up – finally – on the horizon, bathing me in gold and hope. I didn’t think of it when Hubric signaled a weary stop and we landed exhaustedly next to a pond in a rolling field of grass.

Stop thinking about it. Seriously. You’re driving me crazy.

But honestly, how did you stop thinking about something like that? I’d been so close to having something I’d wanted all my life. I’d been so close to getting what I didn’t even believe was possible.”

― Sarah K.L. Wilson, First Message

But if everyone thought that way there would be lawlessness.

“Like I said, there are layers. People might agree with the principles but there’s more to it. Maybe they finally find a place with the true believers – a place they never had before with anyone else. Maybe the ideals, while not that important to them, open up paths to success or honor that weren’t open to them before. Maybe they get power they didn’t have. Maybe it just makes them feel good to rub other people’s faces in the dirt or feel like they’re somehow in the right or cleverer than their neighbors, or to rebel – not against anything, just to rebel in general. People are strange. In that buzz of thoughts and wants any one thing could be the controlling impulse that launches them down a path you can’t turn back from.”

“You have to believe me that I’d do anything for her now. She’s like a ship that sailed by and I got tangled around her anchor rope. I can never go back to where I was before. There’s just something about her that I need to protect and nurture and without that … without that there’s nothing.”

“Later that night, from the comfort of the big moss bed, Artorius gave Mattie’s shoulder a pat. ‘I am so sorry about my family,’ he said.

‘Don’t worry. That’s what best friends are for.’

‘_Your_ mom was a lot nicer.’

‘But she kicked you out, remember? All parents are in pain.’

“She took down the framed manuscript from the kitchen wall. It was Kendra’s prized possession, and part of her felt guilty for what she planned, but it had to be done. She carefully removed the parchment from its frame, then searched through the piles of translations and notes on the kitchen table. Finally she found the Secret Scroll on the chair where Kendra had been the night before. She carried both manuscripts upstairs and set them on her desk.

Next she gathered paints and brushes and sat down. She studied the artwork on the Secret Scroll, then slowly began copying its rich patterns of gold, red, and blue onto Kendra’s old manuscript.

It was late afternoon when she finished. She studied her work. She had managed to copy the exotic birds and animals hidden in the foliage on the borders, and even the detailed picture of the goddess locking the jaws of hell. Her work was rough, but at a distance it would fool Toby or any of the Regulators, especially since they were afraid to touch it.

Satisfied, she went to her closet. She searched through her clothes until she found the strapless top with the slit in the front. She slipped it over her head, then grabbed a silky black skirt and stepped into it. She carried her stiletto boots to the bed and tugged them on.

At last she drew black liquid eyeliner over her top lid, added green glitter shadow, rolled thick mascara on her lashes, and brushed her hair. She added gloss to her lips and rubbed sparkle lotion over her arms and chest. Then she remembered the dragon stencils. Soon, she had a sinuous dragon adorning her thigh between the bottom of her skirt and the top of her boots. She liked the look. She turned in front of the full-length mirror behind the bathroom door.

“Dynamite,” she whispered. Her reflection thrilled her. She looked vamped-out and mystical. At once, she sensed the fierce power of the dragon rising in her. She felt like an invincible goddess-warrior.”

“A man’s perspective is limited by the brevity of his existence.

Even living deliberately, how far up can we reach?

Standing on our miniscule patch of time, how far into the future can we see? How much of the past can one truly understand?

Yet, only a recreant spends their precious drops of sand before dropping back

into the abyss lounging in indulgence, not striving for understanding, knowledge,

answers that those of us

scourged/consecrated with consciousness

should seek with unconquerable passion.

“His booted feet pounded out an insane, frantic rhythm underneath him as he raced into the cavern across from Baba Yaga’s den at a dead sprint. Pieces of dragon dung flew off him and hit the ground behind him in miniature chunks. He didn’t dare look behind him to see if the dragon had risen from the ground yet, but the deafening hiss that assaulted his ears meant she’d woken up. Icy claws of fear squeezed his heart with every breath as he ran, relying on the night vision goggles, the glimpse he’d gotten of the map, and his own instincts to figure out where to go.

Jack raced around one corner too sharply and slipped on a piece of dung, crashing hard on his right side. He gasped as it knocked the wind out of him and gritted his teeth, his mind screaming at him to get up and run, run, run. He pushed onto his knees, nursing what felt like bruised ribs and a sprained wrist, and then paled as an unmistakable sensation traveled up the arm he’d used to push himself up.

Impact tremors.



Boom, boom, boom.

Baba Yaga was coming.

Baba Yaga was hunting him.

Jack forced himself up onto his feet again, stumbling backwards and fumbling for the tracker. He got it switched on to see an ominous blob approaching from the right. He’d gotten a good lead on her—maybe a few hundred yards—but he had no way of knowing if he’d eventually run into a dead end. He couldn’t hide down here forever. He needed to get topside to join the others so they could take her down.

Jack blocked out the rising crescendo of Baba Yaga’s hissing and pictured the map again. A mile up to the right had a man-made exit that spilled back up to the forest. The only problem was that it was a long passage. If Baba Yaga followed, there was a good chance she could catch up and roast him like a marshmallow. He could try to lose her in the twists and turns of the cave system, but there was a good chance he’d get lost, and Baba Yaga’s superior senses meant it would only be a matter of time before she found him. It came back to the most basic survival tactics: run or hide.

Jack switched off the tracker and stuck it in his pocket, his voice ragged and shaking, but solid. “You aren’t about to die in this forest, Jackson. Move your ass.”

He barreled forward into the passageway to the right in the wake of Baba Yaga’s ominous, bubbling warning, barely suppressing a groan as a spike of pain lanced through his chest from his bruised ribs. The adrenaline would only hold for so long. He could make it about halfway there before it ran out. Cold sweat plastered the mask to his face and ran down into his eyes. The tunnel stretched onward forever before him. No sunlight in sight. Had he been wrong?

Jack ripped off the hood and cold air slapped his face, making his eyes water. He held his hands out to make sure he wouldn’t bounce off one of the cavern walls and squinted up ahead as he turned the corner into the straightaway. There, faintly, he could see the pale glow of the exit.

Gasping for air, he collapsed against one wall and tried to catch his breath before the final marathon. He had to have put some amount of distance between himself and the dragon by now.

“Who knows?” Jack painted. “Maybe she got annoyed and turned around.”

An earth-shattering roar rocked the very walls of the cavern.

Jack paled.

Boom, boom, boom, boom!

Boom, boom, boom, boom boom boom boom—

Mother of God.

The dragon had broken into a run.

Jack shoved himself away from the wall, lowered his head, and ran as fast as his legs would carry him.”
