This theme is the best possible as far as I'm concerned and have been reading carefully over the last couple of weeks.

BUT I DO NOT KNOW HOW I CAN POSSIBLY VOTE

My notes say Wonderful, Excellent, OMG, YES YES YES, Magical, Beautiful, Just Perfect  all over the place.
However much people complain Dragons are old hat etc, they are truly diverse beings. You are all Dragon Champions and have shown proof here. Thank  you.

Who says dragons are old hat? Point these people out to us, so we can "re-educate" them in the error of their ways ;)

Just by coincidence, I re-read the excellent Cordwainer Smith SF short story "The Game of Rat and Dragon" just last month. It manages to combine two of my favourite real and imagined animals in one (no, not rats).
