Hi Therese! I just wanted to let you know that I've featured this dragon on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course). I love this piece and the great story it tells by just their expressions.  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and your feature in my April AtoZ Challenge here. Keep up the great work!

Well, technically, the princess is still a damsel in distress.... it's just that her distress is not of the usual kind :D

Princess:  *gives death stare* "Leave him alone, you bully!  Pick on someone your own tiny size!"

Knight:  "Oh crud."  *runs away*

Princess:  "That's right, you get out of here!  And if you ever try to hurt my mate again, I'll show you no mercy!"

Dragon:  "Wow.  You certainly had him running with his tail between his legs."  *tries to get up but stumbles on his wounded leg* "Ow!"

Princess:  "Oh you poor dear.  Don't worry about getting up.  Just lay down and let me finish cleaning your wound."

Dragon:  *nuzzles her*  "Thank you, my love."

The poor dragon's expression looks like what you'd see on a dog that knows it did something bad. It's simultaneously hilarious and adorable.

This picture has always warmed my heart, I have finally added this to my favorites now that I have an account. The princess does not look too pleased that the knight just hurt her friend.

This reminds me of a story I ones read when I was a kid. It stars a princess who doesn't want to be you typical princess so she ran away and got herself a gig as a maid for a dragon. Knights from around the kingdom came to challenge the dragon but the princess practically told them to just go away and she likes it there. It was a good read.
