I was going to write a piece about a vet for dragon being called onsite to save a great rare dragon, found injured, and have a happy ending.  :-[

I believed that storyline until I saw the words "happy ending"  ::)

I thought that 50 shades fanfic would be a month in itself!

The fact that dragons are imaginary means that so is their junk. I'm pretty sure you don't actually want to see what I can do with undead dragon junk.

@Lanko : weelllllllll, I had started on a pretty shitty and traumatic beginning, for a change of pace.

Slammed through a story that didn't challenge me in the slightest.
Not sure if I'll use it or not.
But if not, I'll post it somewhere here for fun.

I've got at least three other ideas.........

Someone burst a brain vein in a flash of genius and recommended 50 shades to me on GR.........

Just letting everyone catch up on what's going on in my GR notifications right now....



I wonder how much research you put into finding this... thing, @Lanko, you mangy dog! I will not read it, the summary is bad enough to scare me off.

Thank you for the dragon story instant crit, @Nora:D
Yes, I do think I'll write at least one of the other ideas as well.

Found this. Not dragon, but the title is actually amusing:

OK, I've posted. I had some fun with this one in a physicist-meets-fantasist kind of way.

Those who share a high school fondness for physics may enjoy spotting some very shallowly buried references.

(No Dragon erotica, or undead wyrms here though!)

Good luck to everyone else with their submissions.

kk.  i've got my idea.  it kind of clumped together, a chunk at a time, layering in all the goodness.

assuming, i can actually execute on the idea.
