Love Anne McCaffrey? Always wanted to be a dragonrider?
More a fan of Eragon?
Puff the Magic Dragon?
The dragon from Sleeping Beauty?

Let's do a dragon swap! So many possibilities!

I can't take on organizing this right now because I'm in the process of beginning a major house move, but I'm HOPING someone else can take it on as organizer...

Ideas? Feedback? People wanna organize?

I am always open to personal swaps...I'm always on the lookout for new bags, shawls, punk/steampunk accessories, Altoids tins, etc. As a professional illustrator/fine artist, I can offer something crafty, or something more artsy. Let's talk!

I love dragons, but I probably wouldn't be able to join unless this was held a little later.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

I'm an Anne McCaffrey fan and a child of the 60's, so I also love Puff the Magic Dragon.  I'd love to be a Dragonrider from Pern.

I'd also love to see this swap get off the ground.

Love the idea. I love dragons, Anne McCaffrey, and Sleeping Beauty (ha!). I am house hunting (and hopefully then moving) so something a couple months from now would probably be the soonest I could participate since I already have other swappiness going on.

Wow, it seems like we could almost do JUST an Anne McCaffrey swap...but then maybe it's better, left a bit more broad. We could ask the organizer to pair people with the same favourite authors/series...I love Anne McCaffrey too, and have read every one of the dragonrider series, except Todd McCaffrey's books, as I am not so far impressed with his style, compared to his mom's.

I'd prefer to do a general dragon swap myself, since all the things I get would be going to my mother for her birthday (she's the dragon lover).  She only likes happy dragons or ones that "don't look mean".  Do you realize how difficult it is to get happy dragons that are not overly cutesy?

Know just how you feel! It's darn near impossible to find dragon-themed items that look realistic vs. cartoony. Making our own would be fun.  Smiley

I haven't read Todd's books either. I keep meaning too...somehow it just seems wrong. I miss Anne.  Undecided

Anybody wish fire lizards were real? I do sometimes. Also have you read The Halfblood Chronicles by Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey? They have a dragons in them that aren't your standard dragons (of course the elves aren't your standard elves either). They're really good. Unfortunatly Andre Norton died before the fourth book came out so I don't know if it will ever be a complete series.

Can't wait to see how this goes and what people come up with.  Sadly probably won't have time to participate but will check out what you folks do with interest =)

And doh!  I've only read the first two Elvenbane books - would like to read the next two, =( - was sad when I heard about Andre Norton.
