Don't forget - in DQ, when F'lar was in Southern and watched Thread hit the ground, he noticed that the plants healed themselves.

This little blurb is what put Pern into the Fantasy category for me. That and

1. Lessa blurring her hand (DF)
2. Lessa speeding up one canine and slowing another (DF)
3. Mention of the Hatching grounds, where the sands increase their heat when a Clutch is hardening (DF)

Then the grubs. While most elements of Pern can be considered SF, I believe that there are some things that really draw it to fantasy instead.
