If i were not out to make as many reviews i as can i would never read your story, you are a pathetic writer and reviewer, i reread ch 1 and it was excactly like the dragon riders. you are hypocritical, and a poor writer
| o2l2 chapter 1 . 11/21/2007
it seams like the dragon riders of pern. expecialy the names. In the dragon riders of pern, the main character is k' vann there is a girl named t' harr... not to point any fingers but this story seems plagerised...
why do u insist on creating such complex names...
very good descriptions expecialy the golden scales, and explosion of the egg. I cant find myself to see dragons in clothing, and dispite the good descriptions i can see myself enjoying any of this story.. pathetic

Well, you've definitely read the dragon riders of Pern. Great originality! j/k

[Hello, there. I'm not here because of your stories, though I think you're a good writer. I'm not here because of a review. I'm here to discuss your profile.]
Welcome to Black Dragon Writing.
If you're here because of a review, either you agree with it, you don't, or you're pissed off that I was "mean". Deal with it. What, you expected everyone to like your story and give you a pat on the head?
[What we expect is that you be civil. We realize that civility is BORING and possibly beyond you, but we believe in the benefit of the doubt. Plenty of people don't like the writing of stories on fictionpress, but they express their distaste in more polite and more useful ways]
Get real. I tell things as I see them, if it's dreck, I WILL SAY SO, OUT AT YOUR FACE. At least I give justifications.
[What, that you read a bunch of fantasy? So does Paolini. And we all know how qualified he is. At least you must, since you speak of him so often.]
And no, if you're here to rail at me I honestly don't care what you think.
[Then why should we care what you think when you rail at us?]
From here you can pretty much see what I've written, from the utter dreck I did when I was just starting out [That you haven't deleted from Fictionpress nor edited, apparently. Or is this false modesty? Though I'll disagree with you even here, since as I said your writing is of fairly high quality all through] right up to something that I damn well hope is better. Which is which? Well, the dates should give you some idea, and as to where to draw the line, you'll have decide that for yourself.
As to why Black Dragon Writing...I'll leave you to figure that one out. [Oh...becasue you like dragons, you write, and because black is TEH COLOUR OF EBIL?] Don't make me have to come over and try to smite one of your stories, do you hear? ['Try'? I thought you'd have more faith in your abilites than that.]
There will always be people better than you at anything, [For example, there are better reivewers than you...] and people worse than you [Though few people more rude]. Learn from the your betters and accept the pain [I'll learn from them when they come, preferably without the name 'Lccorp2'], then teach those weaker and inflict pain as necessary. [Inflicting pain is rarely necessary. Discomfort, certianly. Pain, rarely. The only reason I send you this is because I doubt you're capable of pain.]

Dragons will not have a human form. What's the point of writing them as thinking and acting completely like humans? The same goes for unicorns, gryphons, and other mythical creatures.
| pseudonym-of-mine chapter 13 . 5/14/2007
Yummily haunting tale. Great job.
| nightdragon0 chapter 22 . 2/23/2007
I can't say I've heard the line in the tone that you want, but I guess I can somewhat imagine it.
Besides expanding in little bits on the events in the other shorts, it's once again the Black Flight in desparation to survive and regain their freedom. Of course, I understand that it's mainly the way they see it, there haven't been too many chances to see things from their side of the story, other than in these shorts.
Makes it more interesting, especially when I can see where the shorts link.
| Casey chapter 22 . 2/21/2007
Very interesting. I liked the use of repetition.
| Arowen Half-Elven chapter 1 . 12/17/2006
Nice. Reminds me a lot of the Dragon Riders of Pern series. Especially that one short story of hers..."The Littlest Dragon Boy", that's it.
I'm slightly confused here...what exactly is a "dragonkin"? It doesn't sound quite like a regular dragon...
| Casey Drake chapter 21 . 11/27/2006
I like that...
I actually thought it was how R'xxra came to the Gold Flight... *shrug* but this was also very interesting...
| nightdragon0 chapter 21 . 11/27/2006
Nicely done. More of a neutral's view of the constant wars involving the Black, Red and Golds. Not to mention getting a glimpse of the writer of many of the tibits at the start of the EoE chapters.
Would the female happen to be R’xxra? Just wondering cause it seems to fit.

It's certainly still along the theme of both sides believe what they're doing is right, so much that they're willing to die for it. But besides that, it's continuing with the look of how things have been going on after Tarnished Gold.
| Casey Drake chapter 19 . 10/1/2006
...The shadow of victory...
| nightdragon0 chapter 19 . 10/1/2006
I have to say, I find this one of the more fascinating shorts amongst the bunch. Though one would need to have read Tarnished Gold to fully understand, this one, amongst some of the others, gives us a view of the characters after the events of the story.
There's been little to touch on the Black Flight before, but here we can see not only a bit of how they live (as POWs) but also their views on it.
I note the name K’ransa from the previous short, A Song...
