I really feel like dragons in media should be something that always evoke a great sense of wonder yknow. like even in comparison to the rest of the amazing world they're in. the word "epic" has sort of been watered down today but that's what dragons are supposed to be! epic! in every way they can possibly be!
in How to Train Your Dragon, we're introduced to each type of dragon one by one and see what individual terrifying attacks they have to destroy a viking village. Toothless himself is even more mesmerizing because of how realistic & catlike he is, and how we're shown the whole process of him and Hiccup learning to trust each other. dragons in this movie are like regular animals, they don't speak english, they grow to be treated as giant pets like horses are, and they're still awe-inspiring and wonderful in their seemingly endless colourful subspecies and mannerisms. seeing new and different dragons in the wild is still an amazing sight.
Smaug actually frightened me when he showed up in the second Hobbit movie. I was watching it on my laptop, on a small screen, and in that moment as he rose out of the gold, I was Bilbo Baggins, a tiny, tiny creature in the presence of a giant, intelligent creature, who fully intended on killing me like it was nothing, and I was deeply unsettled. dragons in this world are classically evil, greedy, highly intelligent, and can speak the language of other intelligent beings with ease. they're hard to kill and can wreak unthinkable havoc on the world just for fun. in my opinion at least, they're one of the most terrifying things in Middle Earth.
when I first played Breath of the Wild I didn't know the dragons even existed and I stumbled upon Farosh by complete accident, and I just stood there in complete wonder watching this beautiful being moving languidly through the air, utterly undisturbed by anything around it, and disturbing nothing in return. it had no wings and yet it flew so fluidly, with a type of secret magic I had no understanding of. it was so big it created winds that could boost me into the air to float around it, without it even noticing me. its scales were magical, and could help enhance armour and food. dragons in this world are peaceful and magical, just existing the same way everything else does, and lending parts of itself for us to use in our own crafts.
every way a dragon can be, they're always so beautiful and scary and wonderful, and they always evoke awe and wonder, no matter if it's in fear, or reverence, or just plain curiosity. I think this is what makes the perfect dragon.

THE DRAGON SIBLINGS in RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON
Pengudatu (Pengu) is a green dragon and the big brother. His power is summoning rain and running through the skies by creating magical platforms out of rain drops.
Amba is a blue dragon with white stripes and the little sister. Her power is making herself glow beautifully like a star.
Pranee is a pink dragon with purple-blue mane. Her power is shapeshifting into a human.
Jagan is a purple dragon. His power is breathing/summoning thick fog that is impossible to see through.
Sisudatu (Sisu) is a blue dragon. Her power is...being a really good swimmer.
(I like how the males are just as pretty as the females. I could only tell who the other brother is thanks to his name.)

The thing I find hilarious about Skyrim is how shocked everyone is that Dragons exist
“But how?! I thought they were a legend!” says the Dragonsreach guard, as Jarl Balgruuf sits below a massive dragon skull nailed to the wall.
“Dragons... preposterous. Children’s stories.” says another nord, as if nobody in the past 4000 years has ever spread word of the 200 dragon skeletons laying around outside Miraak’s temple on Solstheim.
“Pffft. Dragons my asshole.” says the Ivarstead mailman, as he goes to deliver a package to the Greybeards, whose entire shtick is that they speak dragon and use the dragon-made Thu’um.

Was drawing more Star Wars ships-as-dragons AU and felt compelled to draw these two scenes in between. XD
The Razor Crest dragon makes for a very warm camping ground, and I can see Luke's X-wing dragon being very nosy and curious about Grogu.
To all the rebloggers and commenters who have also said they like this whimsical idea of mine, thank you for the support! <3
