"If a woman has [the right to abortion], why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t result in anyone’s death."
-Something Maine lawmaker Lawrence Lockman actually said
dragons hoard gold and treasure but as far as i can tell they have no use for it as actual currency. dragons dont really need material wealth because they can do whatever they want and no one will sell anything to a dragon (a dragon can just take whatever they want anyway)
possible theories for why dragons hoard treasure:
- like many species of birds, dragons are instinctually attracted to shiny objects for no other reason except to attract a mate with their beautiful nest
- their favorite cartoon is scrooge mcduck
- dragons just enjoy killing/eating rich kings, landowners, aristocrats etc.
- they intentionally manipulate the global economy by withholding material wealth from the market
Ok this is a delightful post but I wanted to throw some fun mythology trivia in here… There’s a theory about why dragons hoard gold, or rather why the treasure hoarding dragon is such a pervasive and loathed enemy in European myths. The Beowulfian era warrior peoples of northern Europe had no concept of life after death, but great warriors were often remembered (kept alive in memory, if you will) through stories told of their great deeds. Furthermore, these stories were often attached to weapons, pieces of armor, or trophies that were involved in the great heroics. Dragons that hoard treasure then become the ultimate foe, not because they are scaley and ferocious, but because in hoarding treasure, they are hiding items that carry stories with them long enough that the stories are lost from memory, and thus the great warriors are truly dead, having lost their narrative immortality
obviously i’m a big fan of the bird theory but i also really like the killing the rich/manipulation of economy stuff too
Also worth noting that Anglo Saxons shared their wealth; great warriors like Beowulf would give parts of his spoils to all his warrior friends and vice versa, and dragons represented the totally taboo practice of keeping it all to yourself.
I love all of this, but I also love the idea that gold is somehow related to dragon health. They tend to roll/sleep in it, so I like to think it helps with the moulting process. Treasure as dragon exfoliate is what I’m saying.
I also like to theorize that dragons want hoards when they want to lay eggs, as for whatever reason dragon eggs are best laid into precious metals. Reasons, I dunno. I just love the idea that Smaug was gravid when he/it/she/they/ze took over the Lonely Mountain.
I would watch the hell out of this.
oh boy would i

I tried the SevniLock style at first but then I had to drop it, I don’t know why the fuck I thought I’d be able to draw like her. Sure I was high when I started it, lol.
Idk, tons of pics and the only one where Sherlock is smiling is this one
its bc his hand is on john’s bum
which might explain why John looks a bit dazed. he’s not thinking about the photos anymore he’s thinking about other things
