I’ll post later this week about my StarFest adventure in Denver this weekend. Look for video! 🙂
In the mean time…
Here I admit my one true love for…*gasp*…DRAGONS. Yes, you heard me. I love dragons!
BUT…. only Anne McCafferey’s dragons.
I was spoiled. The Dragon Rider’s of Pern was the first “adult” fantasy book series I was ever introduced to. Before I go any further, I admit freely that I have not read the entire series, not by a long shot. But I was completely obsessed with Dragonsong and Dragonsinger in sixth grade. On long road trips suring my middle school years these two audiobooks were constantly playing on my walkman and my own ridiculously fantastic story woven into the fabric of Pern. I really identified with Menolly (the main character of Dragonsong/singer) at that time in my life. I suppose it was a fandom very similar to many’s obsession for Harry Potter. It was so ridiculous that when we were in Ireland and in the county Anne McCafferey lives in, I actually tried to find her in a random local telephone book. At the time I had NO idea how creepy that was. I’m better now…I hope. 🙂
It’s funny, I’d almost forgotten how big of a Geek I was about those books.
