My Life as a Dragon Part1

I woke up around 7:30 to the sound of my alarm clock which sounded harsher than normal. Growling slightly, I hit the snooze button with my tail and opened my eyes. I saw my scale covered forelimbs and was confused for a moment. "Why do I have scales and a tail" I thought. Then I remembered what happened yesterday. "Oh that's right I am a dragon now." Then I stretched out all my limbs and nearly knocked a bunch of things down with my wings. "You are a dragon and they have wings goofus, remember that and be more careful " I mentally scolded myself. I got out of my bed, did the normal things I do when I first get up, and went into the closet to get dressed. As I entered the closest I remembered that I needed to take my clothes to my mom to get them modified. I put all of my clothes, except for my paint covered work shorts and shirt, into The Sandcrawler. I was getting hungry so I decided to eat before going to my parents' house. I normally had small breakfast but today I ate twice what I had before I transformed to satisfy my hunger. After eating and calling to make sure they were awake I drove to my parents' house.

I arrived at their house and got out of my van leaving it unlocked. As I walked to the front door I saw one of our 6 cats Markey, a black and gray tabby male with a white belly and legs, sitting in the window. As soon as he saw me he lowered his ears and started clawing the glass. I looked at him with a non-threatening expression and said "Hi Markey." Right after I said that he stopped trying to cut through the window and stared at me looking very confused. I opened the door walked inside and closed the door with my tail. I saw Markey's sister, Mikachu who looks like a smaller version of Markey but with less white, sleeping in a chair. I walked over to Mikachu and started patting her. Her eyes were sill closed but she started purring this made me want to pick her up. As I started to slide my paw under her she opened her eyes and hissed at me. "Calm down Mikachu it's me John" I said softly, and I laid against the chair trying to look like a submissive cat. She carefully started sniffing me and after a few moments murped and started purring again. I suddenly heard a meow and felt Markey head butt me. so I rubbed him on his back just in front of his tail. He closed his eyes and made the aah-aah sound that he says when he is happy.

I got up on all four's keeping my head low and walked into the living room. I saw my mom sitting in the dining room using her computer. A male brown and tan with a white belly and legs maincoon cat called Foxy was laying on a chair next to her. Looking through the glass door and large windows leading out to the deck, I saw Kahtzie, a pudgy white female cat with a black tail and a black toupee, sitting on a suitcase look at some squirrels throng the glass door in the bedroom. My dad was on the couch in the living room reading the newspaper. On one side of him was Mikachu and Markey's mother, Coonie, she is a dark brown and tan maincoon with white paws. Foxy's brother, Oscar, was on the other side. He is black and gray and as soon as he saw me he ran into the bedroom. I laid down on the floor and said "Good morning mom and dad".

"Good morning John" they replied.

"Did you remember to bring your clothes?" my dad asked.

"Yes they are in the back of my van" I answered.

"I'm going to get my fabric ruler" mom said while getting out her chair.

As soon as she got up Foxy saw me and ran under the dining room table. "Foxy come over here it's just me, John" I said. Moments later Mikachu came into the room wanting more pats. So I started petting her with my right paw. Coonie then got jealous of Mikachu hopped off the couch and meowed for pats as well. So I stated petting her with my left paw. Foxy decided to carefully approach me. Mikachu and Coonie then decided that they wanted my dad to pet so they both hopped up onto the couch. When they did that I slowly reached out toward Foxy. He slowly moved toward it and sniffed it. Then he gave me an "I want pats" expression, so I gently started petting him. Mom came back into the living room and asked my dad to start moving my clothing into the back of her SUV, as he got up Foxy walked into the bedroom.

"John, can you get up so I can measure you?" Mom asked.

"Ok" I replied as I got up on 2 legs.

She took a bunch of measurements, after about 5 minutes she told me that we were done. I saw Foxy come out of the bedroom and he murred at someone. Then Oscar slowly came out of the bedroom. I sat down and called both of their names. Foxy came right over and I stated petting him. Oscar murowed at Foxy and Foxy murped in response. Oscar then came over to me sniffed my paw and meowed. I slowly moved my paw to pat him worried that I would scare him. He gave a "hurry up and pat me already" look, so I started petting him. Oscar then decided to roll onto his back and purr. He had never done that around me before. "I guess Oscar likes dragons" I said to my mom.

"Who likes dragons?" my dad asked as he re-entered the living room.

"Oscar does" mom replied.

"I've seen all the other cats where's Kahtzie?" I asked.

Kahtzie answered that question by walking into the living room. When she saw me she laid down in a crouched position. "Kahtzie you can come over here, it's just me, John, and I don't bite" I said while gesturing her to come with my tail. Kahtzie decided that it meant I wanted play whit her so she pounced my tail. My scales prevented her teeth and claws from hurting me. I kept moving my tail tip letting her chase it until, she accidentally scratched one of my tailfins. It was not serious but it still hurt which caused me to hiss slightly. I jerked my tail away from her and turned around so that I was looking directly at her and then I moved my paws towards her. Kahtzie looked at me with an "I'm sorry please don't hurt me" expression. I picked her up, started petting her, and told her that attacking a dragon made her a very brave cat. Then I purred at her to say "I forgive you." When she heard my purrs she started purring.

"I didn't know dragons could purr" dad said.

"I think it's cute" mom said

My cheek scales turned red.

"Aww mom you're embarrassing me" I said.

"Sorry" she replied.

"Well I have got other things that I need to do, call me when my clothes are ready, bye," I said as I put Kahtzie on the sofa.

"Bye John stay safe" dad said.

I left their house and drove back home. Once I was inside my house I stared planning what I was going to do next. I figured that I should get my drivers license photo updated. But first I wanted some clothing, because even though being in bare scales did not bother me much, it would probably bother many humans. So I quickly cut slots in the back of my work shirt for my wings and a hole in my work shorts for my tail. After that I printed my tf sequence and put both the print outs and my camera in The Sandcrawler. I got buckled up started the engine and, since it was a nice day, rolled down the windows. Then I drove towards the DMV building.

The drive was rather uneventful, many people looked at me, I just smiled and waved at them. The air rushing in form the window felt nice, but not as good as flying did. I arrived at the DMV building and walked inside carrying the tf sequence, of course I got many stares. I don't know if it was because I was a dragon or because they were wondering why a dragon was in the DMV building. I walked over to the counter, showed the lady working there the tf sequence and my old driver's license.

"I just got turned into a dragon, can you update my photo?" I asked.

"Yes I can" she said.

"Ok then lets do it" I said.

"Ok what is your human name?" She asked.

"John *" I answered.

"Ok, do you have a dragon name?" she asked.

"No" I answered.


"Copper Dragon"


"12 feet"

"Eye color?"


"Date of Birth?"

"March 1st, 1988"

"And just to make sure your not lying SS#?"


A minute or two passed as she had the computer process everything.

"Ok everything checks out, you're good. Now I just need to take your picture" she said.

"All right" I replied.

She directed me to the camera and used it to take my picture. After a few more minutes of waiting, she gave me my new driver's license. I thanked her, put my new ID in my wallet and carried my pictures back into The Sandcrawler. Now that I had my ID sorted out I wanted to go see I could help James, but I decided to call him first. I pulled out my cell phone and dialed the number for Smith Electric.

"Thank you for calling Smith Electric, This is Gracie, how may I help you?" I heard Gracie say.

"This is Wattojawa, I would like to speak to James" I said.

"One moment please" she answered.

I heard the phone go into hold and a few moments later come out of hold.

"Ok Wattojawa this is James, where were you yesterday?" James asked.

"Well the new gas tank for my engine was finished yesterday. So I spent most of the day putting it back together. Did I miss anything?" I replied.

"Well Mr. Riggit brought and odd fan motor in yesterday, since you are the expert on fans it would have been nice to have your help. But, I'm glad you got your engine back together, is it running again?"

"Sorry about that, yes it runs, but that's not the reason I called."

"Then what is the reason."

"The reason I called is that I now have proof that dragons and the moon landings are real and I am going to show you that proof but I must warn you that I look different"

"That proof is what? May I ask and what do you mean you look different"

"I am now 7 feet, copper and cyan colored and can fly. In other words I'm a dragon now."

"I don't believe you"

"You will once I get out of my van. I am going to park at the rear entrance. See you in about 20 minutes."

"Ok bye"

I closed my cell phone and drove to Smith Electric. Just like I told James I parked near the back door. I got out of The Sandcrawler and saw that the back door was unlocked but I knocked on it anyway.

"You can come in its open" I heard James shout.

"It would probably be better if you came out here and if you are wondering who is talking to you the answer is Wattojawa." I said.

"You are always welcome here come in" he answered.

"Ok just promise you won't freak out" I said.

"I won't" he replied.

I slowly stepped inside.

"Why are you wearing a costume?" James asked.

"What costume I just have a shirt and shorts on." I said while moveing my tail and opening my wings partway.

"That dragon cos...." he started to say as he realized that I just moved my wings.

"Oh my.... You really did turn into a dragon" he finished.

"Did you really think that I would lie about something this important?" I asked.

"Well I though that the part of your phone call about dragons was a joke." He answered.

"As you can see it was no joke and now do you believe that the moonlandings are real" I said.

"Well I now know that dragons are real but I'm still not completly sure that the moonlandings are" he replied.

Our conversation was interrupted by Carmen opening the door the led from the front desk to the main shop.

"James you have a customer who brought in a pool pump that needs fixed" she said.

Then she noticed me and said "who are you."

"Wattojawa, I found odd copper colored stone. I crushed it and it turned me into a dragon." I replied.

"Frank if you want to go into the shop you may" Carmen said. "Oh and don't worry about the dragon, he won't bite you."

"Unless you try to slay me" I added half jokingly as he walked through the door.

"Don't worry I'm not going to slay you" said Frank.

"I already heard that your name is Frank, I am Wattojawa and he is James" I said with my tail pointed at James.

"Interesting name" Frank said.

"That is my nickname" I said.

"What's wrong with it?" asked James.

"It started making lots of noise" answered Frank.

"I will see what I can do" replied James.

I think that I mentioned this before but just incase I did not I am going to now. Smith Electric shares a building with 3 other businesses; Smith Enterprise, an excavation company; Smith Supply, a structural steel shop and Smith Sheet Metal, a sheet metal shop that specializes in stainless steel commercial kitchen vent hoods but they do other sheet metal work too. Smith Sheet Metal is nicknamed The Stainless Smith. I walked through the side door that leads to the sheet metal and steel shops. As soon as I walked through I saw Simon operating the sheer. He hand not noticed me yet so I stealthily approached him.

"Hi Simon the Tinman" I said.

"Hi Wattojawa. Holy weld splatter" he said as he turned towards me and saw what I was.

"You are Wattojawa right?" he asked slowly backing up.

"Yes I am and don't act so nervous if I was going to attack I would have done so already." I answered.

"I am going to tell the others. Wait I have a better idea, can you walk on 4 limbs" He asked.

"Yes, what is your idea?" I replied, dropping to all four's to prove it.

"That depend on whether or not you know how to fly" he said.

"Yes I do, I also know how to breathe fire and shoot plasma bolts like Toothless can in How To Train Your Dragon." I answered.

"Ok here's the plan," he said. Then he whispered the plan to me.

"This is going to be fun" I whispered back.

He went to get the others and I snuck out through the backdoor of the sheet metal shop. I spread my wings, flew to the location mentioned in the plan and lay low to avoid being seen. A few minutes later I saw Simon, Rusty, Fred, Robert and Jeremy take a bunch of boxes and old shipping pallets to the burn. As soon as they came out I took off and climbed several hundred feet. I heard Simon shout, "Where is Wattojawa he said that he wanted to show us a cool trick." That was signal for me to do my part. I dived towards the burn pit to build up speed and got ready to shoot a plasma bolt. I heard Simon yell "Night Fury Get Down". As soon as he did I unleashed the plasma on the burn pit, setting all the boxes and pallets on fire. I circled the building once to lose airspeed then I landed behind them. Simon started laughing.

"What's so funny" asked Fred.

"Oh nothing" Simon said still laughing.

"I don't see anything funny about this what if that night what ever you called it comes back" said Rusty.

"I don't think it was a Night Fury, I think you and Wattojawa rigged the boxes to blowup" Jeremy added.

"Speaking of which where is Wattojawa?" asked Robert.

"Right behind you" I said.

They all turned around and got the O_o look.

"What" I said making a Toothless is un-amused face.

"Well just look at yourself" said Robert while gesturing at all of me.

"You just gestured to all of me." I said trying and failing to imitate Hiccup.

"Well you see that just it, all of you is a dragon" said Jeremy.

"Tinman, why didn't you tell us that Wattojawa was turned into a dragon?" Fred asked.

"We wanted to surprise you" Simon answered.

"Well you did a good job of it" Rusty replied.

"Sorry we just wanted to have some fun" I said.

"We're not mad at you" Jeremy stated.

"Now Tinman on the other hand..." Robert added glaring at Simon.

"Um uh Wattojawa what was it like to turn into a dragon?" Simon asked, hoping to change the subject.

"Well it felt weird, it did not hurt much, but it was not pleasant either" I answered.

"What's flying like?" asked Fred.

"It's wonderful, I don't think I can explain it any better than that" I replied.

"Well, I need to get back to work" Rusty said.

"We should too" added Fred, Jeremy and Robert.

"I have to finish the job I was working on" Simon finished.

"Ok" I answered.

I went back inside and headed for the front part of the building. I walked through the small back office and entered the front part of the building. Since the office had a low ceiling I had to walk on all four's.

"There he is" I heard Rob say.

"What's up, besides the ceiling and roof" I asked.

"We were just trying to figure out what you look like." Julia answered.

"Well I'm here now, what do you think?" I asked.

"I think you look kind of cute" stated Katie who had just walked in.

"Gee thanks. How come none of you acted scared?" I asked.

"Carmen told us that you were turned into a dragon" Rob answered.

"Isn't it hard to do stuff when you have to walk like that?" Gracie asked.

"Actually I can walk up right I was just walking this way because the back office has a low ceiling" I answered.

"Walking on four legs must feel strange, right?" asked Julia.

"Not really, it seems quite natural to me, I kind of like it" I answered. Then I asked "Does me standing this way bother you?"

"I guess it does a little" Julia replied.

"Ok I will stand upright for you" I said.

I moved out from under the main trunk line and got back onto 2 legs.

"Is that better?" I asked.

"Yes and but now that I can see how tall you are I understand why you had to do it" Julia responded.

"Couldn't you have just stooped over a bit?" asked Rob.

"Yes but, it is somewhat awkward" I said.

Carmen came over to this side of the building and asked if anybody needed lunch. I surprised everyone by saying I wanted a piece of cheese pizza. They all looked at me amazed that I actually wanted something for lunch and that it was not meat.

"What I am a dragon now and we have larger appetites than humans." I said.

"That makes sense but you wanted cheese pizza" Rob said.

"I like cheese pizza" I replied.

"But aren't dragons carnivores?" asked Jeremy, who had come in with a list of what the other shop workers wanted.

"No we're omnivores" I replied.

"Oh Ok" he said.

Jeremy gave Carmen the workers orders. Then she called Triple Spruce restaurant with the order. After that Robert got in his VW Camp Mobile (looks kind of like a VW bus) and drove to Triple Spruce. While he was away I heard the sound of a large truck engine. I turned my head in direction of the noise and recognized the truck as the one that Katie's husband, Mack, drives. He drove to the back side of the building and parked his truck there. He walked into the lunchroom.

"Hi Wattojawa, you look different, did you get a new haircut" Mack said.

"No I became a dragon" I said.

"Gee I never would have realized that" he said sarcastically.

"So you couldn't tell by my wings and tail. Oh and what are to doing here today you just changed your oil last week and how did you know it was me?" I asked.

"James called and said that you were a copper dragon and since I was nearby I decided to see if he was joking or not" he answered.

I heard Roberts VW pull in the driveway. He came in and gave everyone their lunch. I finished the pizza slice in 4 bites.

"You really were hungry" James said.

"I guess so" I said.

I happened to glance out the window at just the right moment to see a red Toyota with no right front hubcap turn onto the driveway. That could only mean one thing Gregousky Probieson needed a motor. Now Gregousky is an interesting guy; he is a drummer and runs a music store but he also fixes commercial HVAC and refrigeration equipment for restaurants. We call him by his nickname Mr. Riggit for 2 reasons; first his real name is hard to pronounce and second a lot of the equipment that he fixes is so old that it is hard to find the correct parts at a reasonable price, so he has to jury rig things to keep them running. He seems to have this ability of always showing up during lunch, no matter when lunch takes place.

"James Mr. Riggit just arrived" I said.

"Tell him I'll be right there" James replied.

I ran into the motor shop and spotted Gregousky, he had an odd looking fan. He had not noticed me yet so I decided to change that.

"Hello Gregousky Master Rigger and Interrupter of Lunches. James will be over in a minute, he is still eating lunch" I said.

"Oh good my timing was perfect, where were you yesterday Wattoj...." he paused as he turned towards me. Then he asked "You are Wattojawa right, I hope?"

"Well I'm certainly not Jake Long and that is my van parked by the backdoor" I answered.

"Am I high on Freon or did you get turned into a dragon?" he said.

"No you're not high I got turned into a dragon by an odd stone." I said.

James entered the shop and said "I hope Wattojawa didn't scare you."

"No what scared me was that I thought that I had gotten high on Freon" Gregousky replied.

"Oh and the reason I wasn't here yesterday was the new gas tank for my Cushman engine had arrived and I spent most of the day putting it back together." I added.

"So the replacement fan did not work then?" James asked, spotting the fan.

"No the compressor tripped out on high head pressure" Gregousky answered.

"Well Mr. Riggit I am hope that our resident fan expert can figure it out" James said.

"I will try my best" I said as I picked up the fan and placed it on the work bench.

Now I am a fan collector so I know a lot about fans, and I have seen pictures of many interesting fans. I had even built several fans and some of those were very unusual, But I had never seen something like this. It looked like a cross between an fan and a squirrel cage blower. The motor looked odd to, almost like a radial engine. The problem was that the fan was locked up. The first thing I did was clean the dirt off to make sure that no bolts or screws were hidden under it.
I found the name plate which read "Ice Drake's Breath Refrigeration  -  Mixed Flow Fan  -  5000 CFM @ .1"HG  -  Elektro Engine  -  3/4 HP @ 2400 RPM -  Volts 120/240 @ Any Cycles - Amps 5 @ 120, 2.5 @ 240". Interesting but why call it an engine, that doesn't make sense, unless it's based on solenoids I thought. This fan was so interesting that I went out to my van and brought my camera in to take lots of pictures. After I took the pictures I started taking the fan apart, documenting each step with more pictures. The first this to come off was the blade which was attached to the hub with 4 bolts. Then I started removing covers on the electro engine, which revealed that, as I suspected, it was based on solenoids. I also found the problem; one of the bearings had fallen apart. To replace this bearing I would have to remove the main shaft, but to do that I would have to remove the blade hub. Unfortunately I could not figure out how to remove it.

"I hope Tony comes in soon" I said.

Tony is a machinist who works part time at Smith Electric. Luckily he got off early that day, so he walked in right after I said his name.


"Didn't you get my call about Wattojawa being turned into a dragon?" James asked back.

"Yes I was just picking on you about that and even if I had not since he is working on a fan I would have guessed it was Wattojawa anyway" Tony replied.

"Tony do you think you can give me a hand with the blade hub, I found a release mechanism but I can't figure out how to activate it?" I asked.

"I'll try" he said as he came over to look at it.

He starting trying to release it with various tools eventually he got frustrated with it too.

"What sort of Commie piece of junk is this? Did the engineers expect me to have claws or something as I think you would need them to remove it." He said.

I face pawed and thought Claws duh, why didn't I think of this sooner. I guess since it hasn't been even 24 hours yet some part of my mind hasn't realized that I'm a dragon yet.

"Let me try something" I said.

I held onto the motor with one paw and placed the other on the hub. I placed a claw on the latch and pressed down hard. I felt it shift and then I pulled on the hub which finally slid off the shaft.

"They really did expect you to have claws" I said.

"There was probably a special tool to remove these" said James.

"What do you think it was called Dragon claw hub puller or some thing like that?" asked Tony.

"Sound reasonable to me" I answered.

I finished taking the motor apart and, now that I remembered to use them, found that my claws made the job easier. Once it was apart I replaced all of the bearings and then I started putting it back together. I looked at the picture that I took to make sure that everything was installed correctly. Once it was back together, with no "spare parts", I placed the fan a vice to hold it in place for a test run. I hooked up test leads and turned on the power. The fan stared up with a roar that sounded like a angry dragon (or a crop dryer fan).

"Well that explains all the insulation in the unit that I took this out of, sound deadening" Gregouksy said.

"Tell them that it needed a dragon's touch." I said.

Gregousky paid Smith Electric for the bearings and paid me for my time. Before he left he told me that he might need my help tomorrow, so I should remember to show up early. He drove off and then I checked my watch and realized that I needed go home. I said bye to everyone, got into The Sandcrawler and drove home. When I got home I put the Sandcrawler in the garage, and took my camera back to my computer room. Then I booted the Computer and uploaded the videos of the Cushman and Hit & Miss fan that I recorded yesterday. Then I uploaded the pictures and a video of the cool (pun intended) fan that I fixed today. Then I logged on to DT Vintage Fans to post the pictures.

The first thing I did was to post the video of the Cushman in the engines thread. While I was in the general board I posted pictures of dragon me in the self portraits thread. Then I posted the video of the Hit & Miss fan in my custom fans thread. I stared a new thread about this fan and told them every thing that I knew about it and got all sorts of replies.

DT'r1: awesome

DT'r2: I want one

DT'r3: How do you mange to find such oddities

Me: to DT'r1 Agreed; to DR'r2 me too; to DT'r3 they find me.

DT'r4: How come your reflection looks like a dragon

Me: Because I got turned in to one.

DT'r1: Got pics.

Me: Yep in the self portraits thread. But I will post them here as well

I posted the pictures.

DT'r1: How did it happen

DT'r2: You know if your scales were black you could be mistaken for a Night Fury.

Me: To DT'r1 Same way as the guy in the news I found an odd stone that was copper and cyan in color, when I broke it turned me into a dragon. ; To DT'r2 Yeh I know and I can shoot plasma like Toothless does.

DT'r5(Sabre471 on DA): I want one of those stones but in blue and white.

Me: Check the woods and parks in your area Sabre471 I'm sure you will find one

The discussion about fans and dragons continued for awhile, but I can't remember the details. After that I ate supper and, like breakfast, it was more than I used to. Then I called my parents to tell them that everything went smoothly and the DMV and motor shop and to plan how we going to handle church on Sunday. I suggested that since most of my closest friends at church are on the choir that I should come to the practice tonight. That way I could tell them first so that that could help me explain it to the rest of the congregation. They agreed with me and told me that I should arrive around 6:30. I quickly checked DA and saw Claw had submitted another part of his story. I left a comment and said that I would be able to talk more later in the evening. Farm had commented in my Journal I replied that I wanted to chat with him later this evening because Right now I had to do something important. It was now getting close to 6:30 so I got ready to leave, then I went outside and took off. I headed towards the church it took me less than 5 minutes to get there and half of the time was the take off and landing.

When I arrived at the church I saw that the various cars were there I waited outside after a few minutes Harvey followed by his sister, Penny. They were followed by my girlfriend; well sort of we did not date but were close friends, Melissa and her sister Amanda.

"Hi guys" I said.

"Hi Wattojawa, you look different" Amanda said.

"My brother was right you do look a bit like a Night Fury" Penny said.

"I have been getting that a lot" I replied.

"I want to see you on all fours again I think you look cool that way" Harvey said.

"That is so typical of my brother, wanting to see you on all four's" Penny retorted, glaring at Harvey.

"I don't mind doing that, in fact I kind of like it" I said while dropping to all four's.

"You know when you stand like that you remind me of a cat, you even have whiskers. I think you look cute that way" Melissa said.

"Thanks and don't worry my transformation does not make like you any less" I replied.

"I still like you too, do you mind if I hug you?" she asked.

"No problem, come here" I answered.

She came over and wrapped her arms around my neck. I carefully gave her a wing hug and started purring.

"Well I think that they are officially boyfriend & girlfriend now" I heard Amanda say.

Melissa and I let go of each other and then I heard all of our parents and Mark, the church organist, come outside.

"Hi children" Harvey and Penny's mom, Elsa, said.

"We are all over 18 which makes us adults" I teased.

"You know what she meant" Melissa and Amanda's mom, Sophi, said.

"John I don't see The Sandcrawler, So I guess you flew over here?" Harvey and Penny's dad, Ben, asked.

"That's correct" I replied.

"I'm assuming that like the guy in the news, you can stand on 2 legs?" Melissa and Amanda's dad, Harry, Asked.

I answered by standing upright again and said, "As you can see the answer is yes.

Mark then asked "aren't dragons supposed to be able to breathe fire?"

"Yes most of us can" I replied.

"Can you show us?" Harry asked.

"Sure lets just go to the main parking lot first for safety reasons" I replied.

We all walked over to the main parking lot. Once we got there I told everyone to keep clear. Then I tilted my head upwards and blew a jet of blue flame into the air. I told everyone to hold their applause until after I showed them my other breath power. I fired a plasma bolt into the air, when it was a few hundred feet up it exploded.

"Wow that looked just like the ones that Toothless shoots!" exclaimed Harvey.

"Thank you" I answered.

We talked for a bit longer, I answered a bunch of questions about what it's like to be a dragon. Melissa told me that she would like fly on me some time. I told the she could once I had more experience flying and I came up with a way to make sure that she would not fall off. By now it was sunset and we had discussed everything that needed to be discussed.

"Well we need to start practicing" my mom said.

"And you should get home before it is dark" my dad added.

"Bye guys" I said as I took off.

Just like going to church, the flight home took less than 5 minutes. I went inside and got back onto my computer. I checked Da to see if there were any messages for me and read some new How To Train Your Dragon fan fiction. After that I played a few internet puzzle games. Once I was tired of that I undressed and went to bed, very happy about how my first day as a dragon went.

Now you get to meet some more of my friends and I twas staring to get used to being a dragon.

I never got around to reading these... I would have liked to be in your stories! ^.=.^

I don't think you look much like a Night Fury. I'd say you look more like a Nightmare (that one that sets itself on fire and messes sh*t up). I guess it's the muzzle shape.

ThunderClawShocktrix Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011   Digital Artist
We'll see how that turns out. I'm sure eventually she will end up a dragoness but I have not got there yet in my writing.
element-dragonx Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oh I'm on pt 2 by the way and mr.riggit sounds like a name some dickhead would have
ThunderClawShocktrix Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011   Digital Artist

MR. Riggit got that nickname because he often has to Juryrig(mc guiver) things to fix them because he can't get the correct parts.
