Re: Deaf Pernese and Blind Pernese? And Color Blind People?

I.e., what Granath said: " the human mind translates draconic thoughts into speech, which is why a dragon's "voice" sounds like his or her rider's in the rider's head."

It's entirely possible...

Re: Deaf Pernese and Blind Pernese? And Color Blind People?

To note: These "implant miracle" videos are hugely controversial - not just among culturally deaf people but also people with implants (whether culturally deaf or not) and hearing people who have...

Re: Deaf Pernese and Blind Pernese? And Color Blind People?

Two more things to add ...

Deaf people have better awareness of their surroundings than the average person due to relying on vision to make up for the loss of another sense. Which would give them...

Re: Deaf Pernese and Blind Pernese? And Color Blind People?

I was quite disappointed to see this view expressed here. Just because Anne said it could not happen doesn't mean her word is law in fanficdom, much less if Pern existed in this dimension. Anne's...

Re: Deaf Pernese and Blind Pernese? And Color Blind People?

Great point re: fostering. That would be an excellent factor to consider. You do get deaf people who prefer to foster/adopt deaf children, but also hearing people who think they would do a better job...

Re: Deaf Pernese and Blind Pernese? And Color Blind People?

Thank you so much for your well-thought-out response, D.M. Domini! I adore your Pern-related work on AO3 and would be very curious about the fics you mentioned that involve deaf people. You seem to...

Re: Deaf Pernese and Blind Pernese? And Color Blind People?

Have been following this thread for some time and just realized I've never posted anything ... mostly because I have far too much to say than could fit in a single post. But I'll take a stab at this...

Star Stones shift?

Was just rereading Dragonseye and a question struck me ... In ATWOP, if I recall correctly, the first two explosions slightly nudge the Red Star, just enough to skip an interval. So I guess my...

Re: Dragonwriter - A Tribute to Anne McCaffrey and Pern

Just got my copy of Dragonwriter today!!!

Naturally, I went straight for the Whelan concept art pages, and I am puzzled about something. Whelan writes that his dream scene that ended up on the...

Re: Random Penguin

I used Photoshop and picked the easiest cover to stick a penguin on. I would have loved to replace Lessa on Dragonflight or F'lar on Dragonquest, but I was not up to that level of Photoshopping :)

Random Penguin

Thought I'd just share a bit of fun/foolery. If this isn't the right place, kindly guide me to the proper forum.

I don't know if you're aware of the Penguin/Random House merger. If you are, I...

Re: Golds prefer holder girls?

Was just thinking about this, and don't forget to add the five-year watches the contractors had to stand during the journey to Pern. So, if Sallah was 24 when she left Earth, and if she stood only...

Re: Dragon Days pdf?

Yay, thank you! Will send you my e-mail address.

I know I'm a relative unknown here, but if you or anyone else needs help editing, I would be more than happy. I have degrees in Lit and journalism...

Gold Dragon Days pdf?

Hi ... I'm not new, per se, but was a member 10 years ago under a different name (which I can't remember to save my life) and mostly under the radar. Then college, grad school and entry into the...

Re: Dragonriders: Comic Book

Those colored pages are gorgeous. I'm just VERY curious ... what kind of medium did you use to color the book? Colored pencils? :)
