Ride the dragon

Happy St. George’s Day everyone.

You know, I’ve never quite understood why you’d choose to kill the dragon when instead you could tame and ride it instead.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to ride a dragon?

If you’ve ever read Noami Novik’s Temeraire series, that is this world’s version of the story (in my personal head-canon, at least). The story of the first man to ride a dragon. I haven’t finished the full series yet so this may be completely contradicted somewhere in the books, but I love the idea.

And if you haven’t tried these books yet, consider this a recommendation. Imagine the Dragon Riders of Pern, but set in the real world during the Napoleonic Wars using dragons as an airforce. Book one is definitely better that book two, but I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the third.
