Dragons meeting by Kooskia Dragons meeting by Kooskia
(c) Kooskia (fancomic)
(c) Naomi Novik (Temeraire character)
(c) Christopher Paolini (Saphira character)
(c) Anne McCaffrey (Ramoth character)

A fancomic i created after reading the first book of Dragonrider of Pern, so i've decided to make a little crossover-meeting of the three main dragon characters of these three series with dragonriders, Inheritance cycle, Temerarie series and Dragonriders of Pern.
I've honestly to say that i've found the first book of Dragonriders quite well.... i can see a bit poor about characters and plot (basically Lessa it's one of the strongest "Mary Sue" characters i've ever seen), but Dragons are still interesting and here we've a meeting of them


PLEASE; IF YOU FAVE IT, DON'T RUSH AND RUN, LEAVE A LITTLE COMMENT!!
IT'S NICE TALKING WITH OTHERS ; )

Ahahah, yeah, the Pern books were very good but the world was sometimes more interesting than the actual stories. And Ramoth is totally queen bitch. (Though Temeraire might beat her in finickiness.)

I'm unsure: other fans swore me that then it works better.
But honestly I've not positively impressed by the first book, quite the contrary....

Speaking simply of Ramoth... i was amazed how useless the dragons are as characters: actually the reader discover after HALF BOOK that they can actually communicate with the humans O.o

I haven't read the Inheritance cycle, but it's interesting to see Lessa described as a Mary Sue. And your interactions between the dragons are very funny. :)

Thanks x3
It's well.. basically Star Wars but with fantasy and dragons and magic Xd

First too book are really cool and fascinating.
Third and Fourth book suffers a bit due "deus-ex-machina" and "overpower" characters

About Dragonrider of Pern, i've not been particularly impressed by the first book.
And i think someone else described Lessa as a Mary Sue (honestly i've seen few characters like this..)

With the Pern novels there are many places to start. You can start chronologically in the time line - Dawn of dragons- or you can start in the order they were written. But I do admit, they take a little getting used too and the older books are a bit harder to find in stores. Anne's books, though, are a bit better than her sons.  Here is to you enjoying a new dragon series!


Now with the comic! I love the idea! I had honestly never thought of if the three of them could meet what would happen, it is very interesting! I absolutely love this! Keep up the good work!

Yeah... this kind of crossovers are fun sometimes xD

I've read the first book and will keep on following the order of writing. But i don't know when i will keep on ^^
Honestly i appreciated some elements, but some things much less..  the main issue is Lessa i thing: honestly i've never seen such Mary Sue  style character ...

But i've read there will be other protagonists in other books...

There are. Dont think of lessa as a mary sue, think of what caused her to be this way, that makes her a little more interesting. and wither pern there is no one main character. and each has their quirks and nuances. just hang in there! you can do it!

Oh...but if you already read the books... what you don't understand? O.o
It's a comparison of the three dragon protagonists of three different series:
Saphira at first say that she chose the rider before coming out of the eggs (and this happens), then say of having killed thousends but for a good reason (and that's true) and finally she regret Eragon not having the same connection that riders in "Dragonriders of Pern" has with their characters x3
In Pern, the riders of two dragons that are mating are forced to be intimate, having an intercourse, lol xD
And Saphira, knowing that Eragon is so shy and can't manage to get Arya, would like the same to happens for her rider xD

I never thought of Lessa as a Mary Sue, but then I have always considered the rather strong feminist message in the original series.

 

 

I hate with a passion Todd McCaffery's writings. To start with he's a shitty writer, secondly his storylines are rip-offs of his Mum's and lastly he refuses to use a copy editor, a cardinal sin in my book.

 

The Harper Hall Trilogy is pretty good, although Red Star Rising/Dragoneyes is by far my favorite.

Uh... ok for Todd's books. But he's never released an interview attempting to talk with fans about it? I mean... there ARE writers with a closer contact with their fans, and i've seen and followed a number of them.

Speaking of Mary Sue vs femminism theme ... i think there is some difference and maybe she got dragged by desire of writing about a good female protagonist and making exageratted thing: Lessa is basically the ever-sexy ever-strong girl, ever stubborn (close to be spoiled and childish), she never fail, she manage to overcome huge problems, acting ever alone, discover things with none help.
I mean... there are other nice stories with female's character (one i read recently is Ratha's Creature, she's a feline character and not human however...) and such a book for exemple, follow the growing of the character: showing mistakes and how she can overcome them despite difficulties...

Don't get me wrong on the Mary Sue thing, I can totally see where you're coming from, and in light of other female protagonists that Anne's written since, Lessa is rather underdeveloped. But Lessa was also one of the first strong female leads in the scifi/fantasy genre of the day, one of the reasons people can forgive the character for being rough around the edges. By White Dragon her Mary Sueishness is very much gone and she is a much more complex person.

I was so mad at how Todd screwed the pooch with Dragon Harper  (and in particular how it was very obvious Anne never actually looked at the rough draft despite signing her name to it) that I have never looked up an interview with him. I did once run across a fan blog once, of a woman who had the opportunity to meet both authors Anne at one time in the late 90's and Todd after his mum had died. She had asked Anne about girls on blues, and at the time had said of course they could ride blues, as Kitty Ping never had not played around with the genetics of either blue or greens. Todd, when approached and asked why a dragon changed color from blue to bronze in a matter of three pages told the same fan to piss off. Granted he might have been having a bad day, or this fan might have been rude about asking, but it sounds really bad when a large portion of your readership already notices spelling and grammatical errors, and then the author tells a fan to piss off rather than say 'oh, that was my mistake, I should have caught that during a re-read.'

(I hated Dragon Harper because it was massively unbelievable that the apprentice would learn to master swordfighting in under a week. Also I found the whole relationship with the Lord Holder's daughter, from their meeting, to her repeatided attempt to get into his pants unbelievable. And lastly, I really irritated that he ripped off his mum's plague plot to close out the book and kill off all the characters he no longer felt like writing about. Particularly when in the back of the book he takes about the Great Influenza Pandemic following WWI and how it mirrors the events in his books. But it doesn't, because he doesn't kill off the right age groups he supposedly targeted by using influenza as his plague of choice. )

I apologize for my long winded vitriolic rant, but bad writing really irritates me, particularly when Anne was so stringent that people not write fanfics based in Pern because she didn't want the world sullied by bad writing.

I only started writing my fanfics after I read Todd's stuff. I figured I could at least attempt something a little more professional.

Yes i supposed that.... as it's considered that the first book is of 1968 (a pretty much peculiar age about growing coscience of the women's discriminations): and that she was the first woman to get the Hugo Prize.
I can understand the whole background of such decision and it was a good thing.
" Todd, when approached and asked why a dragon changed color from blue to bronze in a matter of three pages told the same fan to piss off. "
Oh gosh.. but...that's what EDITORS are for xD Helping the author and making lots of checking for grammar and reptitions in the lines.
Well.. don't worry for this venting, i understand it... having had a number of issues with some authors (we've an italian author, named Licia Troisi, that's the biggest publishing house in italy made huge advertise and sell her books... but some are so terribly wrote to be ridicolous... with huge mary sue, flat antagonists, no development, deus ex-machina, god mod, magical rules given and then broken with no explains etc..).
Thank you for your words ^^ By the way, if you kike dragons, the user AMCALmaron here suggested me such interesting series.. i already started to read it and seems very nice!
Age of Fire, it has 100% dragons point of view xD

If I may, Todd's lack of a copy editor (those are editors assigned to specific series to make sure the details remain consistant book to book) isn't the only one I've noticed in recent years. American science fiction has suffered from the commercialization of the genre for the past oh~ fifteen years or so. To save money and push out books faster publishing houses no longer assign copy editors, just temporary editors, sometimes several for the same book, and rarely have these editors actually bothered to read other books in the same series. It leads to these issues that makes me, as a fan, absolutely crazy.

Age of Fire huh? I'll have to look into that, if my life ever gets a little less hectic. ^_^

Oh thats' bad i think... sadly there is also here a bit. But luckily some smaller publishing groups (and a big one, but historical) take much more care.
If you like a story all from the dragon's perspective, that's the best exemple ^^ i just started it today xD it's quiet interesting but maybe a bit violent in some scenes for someone's tastes (i'm fine with it).

Well.. basically we can say that follow a dragon-point of view in a fantasy world that include humans...
And there is a quiet interesting scene with the young dragon (protagonist) eating one.
Also there is a scene with fraternal fight to death just after the hatching... sort of fight for survival of the strongest males in the clunch. BTW, both scene are quiet well wrote (i read only the beginning) and in some way push well the reader in getting "into" the dragon point of view that consider quiet normal both the events.

I wasn't totally sold on the series when I read the first book myself...partly cause I was reading a graphic novel adaptation that didn't explain a lot of things (plus the art style kept changing!) so I had little to no idea what was going on! Got vaguely interested once I got to the Harper Hall trilogy with the fire-lizards, and eventually got sold on the series when Ruth made his first "speaking" appearance in The White Dragon. 

I mentioned it in an earlier post, but you should track down the "Age of Fire" series; it's basically the draconic equivalent of Watership Down. AuRon, Wistala and RuGaard would be great additions to your comics!

Well.. i dont think it's a bad book i mean.. there are much worse draconic books i've found (a pair of terrible ones are the italian book of Licia Troisi "the girl-dragon", and then another one is the series of Julia Conrad that i found terrible. However i would really crave for book with dragon POV. Thank you for mentioning again this book series (i forgot about it ... has been a bit busy). But i've found them! xD
(there are seven books right?).
I think i will read them because draconic point of view (as main character) was exactly was i was searching.
I know about another series (Dragon delasangre) but sadly i've found it online only in not-free sites (amazon,etc..) ... also that one seems basically much gore and with dragons in human form.

I can also say that i've been working on a short story myself xD (no publication intention, just for fun, for some fanfiction sites but basically original plot and character).

Maybe you should jump ahead to one of the stand-alones...Moreta or Red Star Rising? You could probably even go straight to The White Dragon, as the prologue includes plot summaries of the earlier books.

Six, all up...I think the first three books are considered the best (although I thought the second book was a bit slow...certainly it's the longest of them all!), because they are each standalone stories (still connected with each other; you'll notice characters or events from one book making cameos in another), whereas the latter three all form a cycle that some people thought fairly weak in the end...book four's good, but book five is quite short and not too much happens, and book six is...kind of odd...and worse, the last few scenes are really weirdly written to the point where it's not actually clear what the hell just happened! Regardless, they were all still enjoyable (and as I said in that huge post I sent you; books one and three are just epic!)!

We will see but for now i'm a bit in doubt if starting the second book of Ratha (felines, etc..) or attempting the first one of Age of Fire. Well... i said that i found just the first two because well... you know emule i suppose ^^
Some time ago i really started to buy every book i liked to read... but then found that there are simply too many v.v
Just wanted to ask (for curiosity) about Age of Fire:
1) Level of fighting/blood/death gore scenes etc....
2) Presence (or absence) of sexuality and related stuff..
3) Kind of characters (if protagonists has growing features, learning, making mistakes etc... or not) (and antagonists, if they're "flat-characters" or has some motivations (revenge, survival etc..))
Without too much spoiler, if you can, for point 3) ^^

Finally... also i think we could like to share some more frequent chats on skype, if you have it x3

There's a good Age of Fires fanfic that somebody wrote called "Alone in the Cave" which is an expansion of a scene only mentioned in passing in the last chapter of the book...have a look at it once you've read the first book (you could read it now, but it vaguely discusses "the dark plot point" I mentioned which would spoil the book...plus it reveals which characters shacked up at the end of the book); www.fanfiction.net/s/6310407/1…

Argh, I'll do my best to try and describe things...

1. There's a couple of nasty injuries that happen across the books, but as far as I recall the scenes don't go over the top in describing the event (one character loses his tail at one point, for instance).
2. Mating comes up a couple of times, and similar to Pern, it's largely done in mid-air (although on the ground in a few instances), but as with the violence, it's not really described (at the end of the first book, for instance, there's something along the lines of "she swooped under him, they embraced for a bit, and then broke apart, hearts pounding"). The first book also has a dark plot point involving mating, but I can't really describe it without giving away the story.
3. I'm not the best judge of characters in stories (generally I'm quite forgiving of story flaws if I like the overall concept), but I think these characters are pretty well fleshed out. Each of the protagonists gains a different attitude towards "hominids" and survival in general as a result of their experiences throughout their lives - AuRon (the most "naturalistic" of the dragons) doesn't mind interacting with them, but thinks dragons are better off avoiding them, Wistala lives alongside them and prefers co-existence, and RuGaard thinks them untrustworthy and only safe when dominated by dragonkind) - and each are all likable even if they're not necessarily doing good things at the time (AuRon casually eats a child at one point!)

Don't have Skype, I'm afraid...ah well, DeviantArt works for now!

Yes, I remember being confused by them as well...sounded to me like it was a central horn that other horns grow off? If all else fails, you can always look to the pathetically small amount of fanart done for the series here on DeviantArt for inspiration...

Glad you're enjoying the books, though!

Kooskia Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013
well the father's said to have multiple 6 horns.. I can guess tha they've some kind of main crests as Temeraire but they can in some way extend them. And they should have secondary sets of extendable crests (with smaller spikes) a bit lower.. to cover ears and some should point "down" because it's said to protect also a bit of the neck.
I'm thinking at some artistic possibilities. if you want i will show you and see your opinion..

Yeah... but i think that Temeraire has the less sexual-drive then the other two xD Saphira clearly get a bit frustrated for waiting and waiting in the books and every time she get an eye on a male well... we know how it ends..
On contrary Ramoth quiet love getting attentions of many, even if only the strongest flier is chosen for the actual mating.

Oh well... um.. i could do it, just maybe set during the last chapter. Because in the next ones the story goes on with more battles and drama and less fun ^^

I kinda see what you mean about Lessa - I didn't really like her when I first read the book, years ago, and I still don't.

Don't get me wrong, though, I really like the Pern 'canon' and such, just not so much some of the characters and some of the canon technicalities.

Anyway, I really like how you drew all of the dragons. ^^ Very cute.

The dragons don't get much focus in the first book; it wasn't until the next book that Anne McCaffrey started actually writing out what they were saying, instead of just describing the gist of it. F'nor's Canth is a bit more of a vocal character in Dragonquest, but Ruth in The White Dragon sets the bar pretty high after that...most books after that generally have a more scenes with dragon dialogue. In addition to that, Lessa and F'lar arguably diminish in importance slightly as the books continue...I mean, they're still authority figures, but they don't get as much time as other characters (and they also get a bit of a personality and relationship rewrite to replace the "Sixties Abusive Romantic Relationship").

From memory, the books with the most vocal dragon characters include:
*Dragonquest - Canth, as mentioned, although oddly other important dragons like Queen dragon Wirenth don't get a single line of dialogue!
*The White Dragon - Ruth, as mentioned.
*The Impression - Golanth...this is a short story included in the "Dragonlover's Guide To Pern" that depicts what Impression's like (the chaos at Ramoth's hatching and Impression was kind of a one-off...call it Early Installment Weirdness).
*Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern - Orlith, Moreta's queen...they're much nicer characters than Lessa and Ramoth.
*All The Weyrs Of Pern - Ruth again, largely because his rider's one of the main characters in this, and also Golanth.
*The Dolphins of Pern - Gadareth...he's not in the book that much, but his scenes are still memorable.
*The Skies of Pern - Lots of dragon characters; but mainly Golanth and Zaranth, who spend several parts of the book chatting with one another!
*Dragonsdawn - Caranth, in later chapters.
*Red Star Rising - Morath; the cute and hilarious green hatchling! Her first real scene always makes me laugh...she wakes her rider by leaning over her bed with lots of apologetic thoughts about being hungry, only to startle her awake and make their heads collide. 

Several of Todd's books focus on dragon characters, but I don't think they're as memorable as these ones (certainly, Talenth seems a bit dim...probably cause she's quite young...) and the events of Dragonsblood will just make you sad.

I think it certainly ranks up there with my favourite dragon stories (which includes Pern and Temeraire...it's all about the sentient POV)...although it's been a while since I read them; I should start again once my course ends. 

Only the first two? Noo, you have to read the third book! It's got an underground dragon city with a ruling family straight out of "I, Claudius" (in fact, most of the book characters end up doing the exact same things as their historic tv counterparts!)...I can't say too much without spoiling it, but the concept behind that book is just great!

The books written by the son read more like bad fanfiction - there are lots of errors, not many plots (save the same one re-used over and over), and his characters are, well, mary-sues. I read them, since I wanted to read the entire series, but I cannot recommend them.
I always wanted to see more of the dragons - you do see more of them later, I seem to recall.
Lessa is really annoying. XD I really thought I was the only one who didn't like her all that much. She gets less annoying later, but that's not soon enough.

I tend to roleplay Pern more than I do read it, nowadays. More fun that way. XD

Oh really? I read that basically he altered some rules, but that maybe was intentional.. with fandom split among who considered it fine and who didn't.  This is just basically what i found online.
Oh welll.. if you want to read more about books with dragon point of view...
Eragon series has something, but i thing that the main character Saphira show few of her feelings in the last book...
Temeraire series has surely much more.... but only  from the fifth book forward, there is direct dragon P.O.V. altered with the human one... i think she should have done it from the beginning..
I suggest you these two series, if you don't know them...
Oh... i know also another one (Dragon delaSangre) but never read it, just i know that's actually a sort of dark/gore/horror... with dragons point of view all the time, but some "nasty" things as dragons eating human (showing satisfaction) with full drescriptions and quiet gore scenes...
