Re: How much do dragons weigh?

To be fair, Ruth was also considered to be an exceptional flyer, and consistently outflew greens casually racing. And to answer both this and someone further downthread's comments about Canth and...

Re: What is the tithe rate?

I like how you write Falls. It seems pretty darn plausible to me!

Re: New Talent Books: "Barque Cats"

You've certainly had the privilege of knowing some fine cats!

I have to admit, when I think about the pregnant tricolor barque in one of the Tower books (blank on which) this is always the mental...

Re: Dragon's Time

Good point. Dedicated messengers or a supply wing would free up able weyrlings a little sooner, when they got to the point of being good enough to be in the wings but still needed as assists.

Re: Dragon's Time

F'lar and Lessa may have still made the saner choice. If they did allow one of Ramoth's earliest green daughters to breed, the resulting smaller, weaker hatchlings would have taken from the pool of...

Re: Dragongirl

I always thought that was one of the parts that made the most sense here. If greens will happily choose gay men, why wouldn't blues accept a lesbian just as cheerfully?

Re: Is Ruth a run... er, rat-dragon?

Think about Ruth's personality. He's the most "thinking" of the dragons ever presented to us. All of the other outliers have been queens...Minith being the next most independent and intelligent...

Re: Dragon eggs and hatchling size

This sounds completely plausible to me. Ruins one of the better fanfics I've read, but still makes the most sense of anything I've seen.

Re: Important unanswered question

There's plenty of waste from hatchlings too young to go Between, and the injured. Even if not, the adults clearly have bowel control and could be asked to go outside of Between if more was needed for...

Re: Golds prefer holder girls?

At least some of them were naturally darker skinned, too. Zulaya is almost certainly part black from her description...beige skin, tightly curled black hair, dark eyes, and that's after over 200...

Re: Pern's worst?

And so brutal in the end he betrays his own dragon, after destroying him chasing his single minded obsession. Yep....he's top of my list.

As for canon...all the obvious ones have been stated, but...

Re: Why aren't two greens rising a problem?

Even then, the overall impact of a green clutching a gold could be mitigated over several generations, by encouraging the bronzes from gold-bronze pairings to fly the "inferior" golds and minimizing...

Re: Should Todd's books be considered canon?

I'm going to admit to some degree of shame that I liked Dragonsblood. It felt like Pern, in spite of the mistakes and Mary Sue issues. I know that's not a popular opinion, but...

Re: All the fics of Pern

I've actually got a short crossover between Slytherinsal's AU and a WoW fic. Below 1k words tho.

I actually have permission to play around in her AU, but starting an indie game studio so I haven't...

Re: What is the tithe rate?

They may be larger, but if they don't have the stamina it's just that more hide to get scored once they're sluggish from fatigue. It'd be useful to find out a bit more how their cardiovascular...
