I enjoyed the Smaug story though found it odd that Middle Earth Fire Drakes could be captured and enslaved by humans. As for Smaug living in peace with the people of Dale, Tolkien mentions in The Hobbit that Smaug had grown too fat to get through the back tunnel of Erebor because he had eaten so many maidens of Dale. This suggests it was over a period of time, so the likelihood was that Smaug demanded a tribute of maidens for his consumption on occasion, and apparently quite a few if they actually made him get fat! Perhaps the people finally refused to give him more, and that's when Dale was 'desolated'. Thanks for sharing.
poor smaug. but crap happens...
jk. it was very well written in the aspects that you tell it from smaug's point of view. i liked how you included a family with smaug and give him the ability to have emotions much like a human than a cold limp of a rock, or should i say Gold.
keep writing! :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the feedback! At first I had the idea that each dragon name somehow translated into the word 'gold', but I'm kinda glad I didn't do that now :D. On to the next story...
This was so nice! I always love it when people take a moment from the movies or book, and make it so that we see so much more of what a character was thinking during that 5 or 10 seconds. whee. =D
Author's Response: I know that that little moment in the extended edition looks like they've both completely given up to most people, but I never always thought there was something different happening there. Thanks so much for your review!
