Feathers Everywhere, Y’all

Miss Singapore is my fave cause I’m a sucker for a crescent moon worked into any outfit (although, I’m wondering how scary it was to walk around with that much wire attached to your back), but I will confess the USA’s feathers are TO DIE FOR. I didn’t even know this was a part of the pageants. All these years, wasted.

Happy ‪#‎AppreciateADragonDay‬!

So, what’s your favorite dragon story? Mine? Definitely the Dragonriders of Pern series. They were my first exploration into dragons and fantasy literature and will always hold a special place in 12 year-old heart (a much more loyal and true heart than my current 26 year-old one). And Anne McCaffrey is just so generous to give readers book after book after book. (No seriously, depending on how you’re counting the series contains about 22-24 books- some written and co-written with her son Todd McCaffrey.) This is one series I’d love to see made into a TV show so I could complain to all my friends how the books are way better and brag I know what’s going to happen before the next episode airs. Dragonriders of Pern
