That's not to imply that the whole comic is the way Erin remembers it (although, that that WOULD explain why she was the main focus in a lot of the comic), but that at the end of it all, she does write a memoir. (This comic takes place when Erin is about 100 since dragons don't start to wrinkle until around 100, which is mid-life for them.)

Man, this ending is really cliche. I feel like I'm ripping off both Stephen King's Stand By Me and the Breakfast Club here. And I feel I should point out that I didn't want to stick with just one year for the flash fowards, so it jumps back and forth depending on what character I'm showing. Sam and Rachel, is of course recent, Beatrix is about 10 years in the future, and so on.

Anyway, thanks for reading. Stay tuned to Dragon City Stories for Chapter 4: Dragon King (working title). I plan on letting that story explain why Elizabeth is no longer with Tibis. Also, I'm still planning on at least one of the dragosn appearing in Jix in a future story arc or two.

Also, Jix is going to have a Wednesday and Friday update schedule leaving Mondays open for DCS. I'm doing it this way so I have an entire weekend to prepare each DCS.

One last thing (I know this is kinda long) is that Sam Jr. in Natasha's universe is just Sam, but Samantha usually goes by Samantha, so there's no confusion there. That and he's green and not brown.

Hi there! If you've reached this comic and are wanting more of my stuff, I'm currently working on a comic called Remedial Magic and you can find it here: http://remedialmagic.thecomicseries.com/

It updates Fridays...and it's a serious comic. (Though there are a few jokes here and there.)

And the quaddragons ceased to exist.

But yeah, I get what you're saying about the cliche thing. It's a happy ending for everyone, and it's just kind of dumped on the reader.

Also, we're somehow expected to believe that the Parrities don't get involved in any more weird things like alien attacks or revealing the existence of dragons to the general human population.

Yeah, but I still have something planned for Jix that I need to not spoil.

Edit: Also, I never wanted to reveal the dragons to the humans. Not on a large scale anyway. At least not now. Again...I still have Jix going and I have plans to bring at least one of the Parrities into it. I know that does nothing for Dragon City itself, but the story I have in mind is planned for Jix (the character as well as the comic).

I'm so glad this comic is over. Not because it was especially horrible compared to other webcomics, most of what it did was basically par for the course. I can see why the Bad Webcomics Wiki hasn't covered it, because there really isn't very much to say. The art sucks, the characters are boring, it did nothing with the premise it started with, and it did the usual webcomic thing of throwing in random fantastical elements in a slice of life series. Really, the only noteworthy thing about it is the fact that it has an ending. Most other webcomics just meander about until the end of time.

Okay. I mean...it's not like I'm holding a gun to your head or hell...even charging you money for it. I can't see why you cared so much about it to read enough to be able to tell me all. Yeah, the artwork is obvious, but the rest...you would have had to read enough about it...otherwise you're just generalizing.

You care more about this comic than you should for someone who dislikes it. Just sayin'. Kinda sad. You're welcome to your opinion, it's just...don't waste your time on something you dislike. You'll be happier that way.

"I'm so glad this comic is over." Why, though? Are the people who do like it not allowed to like it? Am I not allowed to just dick around and make a comic because some irrelevant person doesn't like it? I mean, I don't like Big Bang Theory, but I'm not wrapped up in enough to wish it would end. I just don't watch it. It's a lot easier than it sounds.

You're welcome to your opinion, but don't assume it's important enough to ruin everyone else's enjoyment. S'all I am saying.

And that's not why they haven't touched me. They haven't touched me because I'm a small fish. My fan basis is about the size of a high school class in a small town.

Wow, it's been a long run, but it looks like this comic has come to an end. This is the first and only time I've made a comment here, but I want you to know that I've really enjoyed this series. You've put a lot of time and effort into this, and I'd like to thank you Dyonus for all of the enjoyment I've got out of Dragon City.

Hey Mr.McNully I started reading this comic a few weeks ago and just recently finished it. I wanted to give you some feed back. First off great story the writing was great a few holes here and there but it held my attention. The drawing at the beginning was not the best but it was still better than mine is now. Your recent illustrations were wonderful and I really enjoyed them. To sum up I really enjoyed the comic and am sad to see it ended. I will probably start reading Jix soon. I am sorry that this is more like a review than a comment but oh well. Keep on writing/drawing/posting you are doing well.

I am sorry, and apologize for the errors in my comment, punctuation is not my best writing skill.

Sorry about not replying earlier, I didn't see this comment until recently. No, I'm not and I'm working on a new comic (if you count a year old comic as new): http://remedialmagic.thecomicseries.com/

I'm very glad I remembered this comic to come re-read it. I truly enjoy how you've set up dragon society and physiology, and the characters are fun.
I do kinda wish Rachel's magic-user friend showed up a bit more, though I also can see that she kind of clashes with the tone of the comic a bit.
