Burning it Down Part 1 Smaug x ReaderThe moment that you felt the mountain tremble beneath your feet you knew for certain that Bilbo had awoken the beast.

You see, dragons possess a very powerful magic deep inside of them. They aren't capable of casting spells like a wizard of course; it is a much more subtle form of sorcery that even the wisest minds in Middle-Earth could not understand.
