8. "RE: Le Droit du Dragon"
In response to message #6
 
   The most delicious part of this post is how your witty rejoinder to a question about an obscure, mostly-forgotten animated series was a clip from an equally obscure, mostly-forgotten animated series.

This is the kind of nerd one-upsmanship that either eneves Mother eloping with
>Father doomed the family to extinction."

I bet this makes her just the FAVORITE aunt of her niece and nephew!

>"Listen to me!" Nall said urgently. "Nax is -not- the kind of
>dragon you're used to. He lives in Midgard because he's an exile. A
>war criminal. His Name means 'Cruelty, Never Mercy'. Now go!"

Interesting. I do wonder if that's a formal exile, or a "skipped town before the heat came down" exile. I can see it going either way.

I have to say that the fight with Nax seems a bit... hmm. Perfunctory? I know this is just a short, but it felt really superfluous in a way that nothing else in the story did; it's like "Well, we kind of promised a dragon fight, and Act III needs a big finish to send us offstage on, so... here you go." I wouldn't say it's dull, but it's just kind of... there. Nax swoops down, Nall kicks his ass, they all go watch Corwin and Utena get hitched.

I dunno, it could just be me.

>Then, smiling tiredly, he said, "Your homeworld is terrible,
>Umi. Let's never come back here again."

I'm kinda with Nall on this one.

Keep Rat
