Seriously, I had every intention of including Alduin in this comic, but he's got way too many details, so I scrapped him in favor of the Blue Eyes White Dragon. Way too many details on that thing.

Regarding Spike, back when I liked My Little Pony, I actually did like the character...despite having no wings and being the servant to a horse...whom he could've eaten at any time.

Eh...this is just an excuse to draw other dragons, really. And I wanted to do Smaug, Saphira, Draco, and King Ghidorah but since I had used them the last time I did something like this, I decided to go with a new set of dragons.

I find it disturbing that the characters are more afraid of upsetting Erin than they are of upsetting their cartoonist.

Happy 1.1K!

Part of their character is slight fourth-wall breakage, not direct author interaction. So Micah can't do anything worse than cripple one or more of them as a plot point without breaking their characterizations. Erin, theoretically, could do worse.

There's also the point that I wrote this myself. I can't exactly get mad at my characters writing something I had them say. (In that case, if I was going to get mad at someone, it would be myself for making them say it, but whatever.)

And Erin knows this.

Oh come on Erin, cut Spike some slack. He's physically half the size of most of the ponies he's with, clearly has a diet consisting mainly of minerals (unexplained), and is kept under careful watch of at least two (Twilight and Celestia) of the most powerful magic-users in the nation.

And don't worry, even though Ash's Charizard has never eaten him, that hasn't stopped him from being portrayed at least fifty times personally ending the lives of other trainers (and that's just from one website).

I considered having her say something along the lines of "But at least the brat's Charizard tried to kill him on a regular basis," but I ran out of room.

Pretty neat. I wonder what their opinion would be of Dragoons, like from Legend of Dragoon. Seeing as it's what dragons would consider normal stuff being made into Super powers of a sort.

Caused by a game dev seeing/meeting a DC dragon, I'd think. Probably wouldn't be too big of a hit in the draconic community.

I don't think I've played that game enough to have Erin comment, but I had considered her commenting on the Dragonborns from Skyrim (something a little similar, I think) and simply dismissing them as wannabe dragons (or humans pretending to be dragons)...which I think she might do with the Dragoons as well.
