Magic #74

"Bless you!" Shouted Barnabas over the thunderous roar of flame.

Amethyst sniffed again, and wiped her nose. "Thank you sir. You wouldn't happen to be popping in to see the Oracle would you?"

"We are madam. May we assume that we can be of service?" Said Tellerick.

"Oh! Would you? So many thanks." She pulled at a set of scales on her chest, opening them like a purse. "Now... Where's that piece of paper?" She sniffed loudly again, before pulling out a large sheet. "I have a recipe, but I thought the Oracle might know where to find the ingredients?"

    Why Jamie? Dragons are trustworthy! 😉

    I still say this would make a great movie. Either live action with a lot of CGI or a computer-animated film.

    I like Amethyst; she seems like a nice girl! I’ve known a few fire-breathing old dragons in my time (glad I didn’t marry one though) but we have to live and let live, I suppose. I’m not sure they’re good for the CO2 levels though, but they’ve been great for lighting up the barbecue!

    Thanks, Christopher! That's a massive compliment!

    Neville... Just be glad she doesn't have the runs 😉 Remember if it's not one end that's dribbling, it's often the other.

    This is wonderful, Jeff, a great cast of characters - and I agree with Christopher, this would make a great Dark Crystal style film.
