The Dragon does not ask, it demands.

If you Wake The Dragon, The Dragon Demands.

BEHOLD A GREAT RED DRAGON

I am the Dragon. You are privy to a great Becoming, but you recognize nothing. To me, you are a slug in the sun. You are an ant in the afterbirth. It is your nature to do one thing correctly: before me, you rightly tremble. But fear is not what you owe me.
You owe me awe!

"It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations."

-- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, Chapter 12

"I have become a brother to dragons, and a companion to owls."

-- Job 30:29
In running a wiki, there are many moments for compassion and tender action. There are also many moments for ruthless action.

...What is often called "ruthless". What may, in many circumstances, be only clarity: seeing clearly what there is to be done and doing it: directly, quickly, awake, looking at it.

As for my critics, I am unconcerned. I am beyond their timid, lying morality. And so I am beyond caring.

Heads. Spikes. Walls.

The heads. You're looking at the heads. I, uh – sometimes he goes too far, you know –
- he's the first one to admit it!

Eddard's Head

"Well, you see...things get confused out there: power, ideals, the old morality, practical necessity. But out there with these natives it must be a temptation to be God. Because there's a conflict in every human heart, between the rational and the irrational, between good and evil. And good does not always triumph. Sometimes the dark side overcomes what Lincoln called the better angels of our nature. Every man has got a breaking point. You and I have one. He has reached his. And very obviously, he has gone insane...He's out there operating without any decent restraint, totally beyond the pale of any acceptable human conduct. And his methods have become...unsound."

Warning: anyone will instantly earn a permanent ban and join the other heads mounted on the wall if they ever mock my great friend Michael Hunt. I will not have my friend Mike ridiculed by common wiki-editors.

  • FalseKnight - August 2014. He should not have mocked Mike.
  • Morgoth - August 2014.  He found Mike's name laughable.

Number One Headband

The Number One Headband is mine. Try taking it from me - when you're ready to face a Dragon.

"There is difference between a grub
and a butterfly; yet your butterfly was a grub.
This Martius is grown from man to Dragon:
he has wings; he is more than a creeping thing."

-- Coriolanus, Act V, Scene IV

Quotes

"Superior ability breeds superior ambition." -- Star Trek, "Space Seed"

"Because I am better."
"At what?"
"Everything."

-- Star Trek: Into Darkness

"People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do." -- Isaac Asimov

"They hunt me with dogs in the daylight,
they hunt me with torches by night,
For these men who are small can never stand tall,
whilst giants still walk in the light.
"

-- The Last of the Giants

"Over the centuries, House Targaryen has produced both great men and monsters. Prince Daemon was both. In his day there was not a man so admired, so beloved, and so reviled in all Westeros. He was made of light and darkness in equal parts. To some he was a hero, to others the blackest of villains. No true understanding of that most tragic bloodletting known as the Dance of the Dragons is possible without a consideration of the crucial role played before and during the conflict by this rogue prince."

--Archmaester Gyldayn

"I took the Canal Zone, and let Congress debate; and while the debate goes on, the canal does also."

-- Theodore Roosevelt

"Lots of ways to help people. Sometimes heal patients; sometimes execute dangerous people. Either way helps."

-- Mordin, Mass Effect 2

"Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right."

-- Salvor Hardin, Foundation

"You disapprove? Well, too bad! We're in this for the species, boys and girls. It's simple numbers. They have more. And every day I have to make decisions that send hundreds of people like you to their deaths."

-- Starship Troopers

"Stand in the ashes of a trillion dead souls, and ask the ghosts if honor matters. The silence is your answer."

-- Javik, the last surviving Prothean. Mass Effect 3

"Fear me, but follow! If you will not serve in combat, then you will serve on the firing line!"

-- Unknown Imperial Guard Commissar, 412th Cadian Regiment, as he shot one of his retreating soldiers through the head, to rally his remaining troops into a counter-charge. Minutes later he and his entire platoon were wiped out in a vital rear-guard action, which ultimately ensured victory in the Lorn V campaign.

"God knows, it's easy to be kind; the hard thing is to be just." -- Les Misérables

"A cruel man, but fair." -- The Piranha Brothers

"Hereby it is manifest, that during the time men live without a common Power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called War; and such a war as is of every man against every man."

-- Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan

"I am a trafficker of information, I know everything I can." -- The Merovingian, The Matrix Reloaded

Why I never use fanon abbreviations or contractions in personal correspondence, such as "KL" for "King's Landing","Targ" for "Targaryen", or "WOT5K" for "War of the Five Kings":

Tyekanik: "Princess, I long for the day when House Corrino returns to its rightful seat of power. So does every remaining Sardaukar here on Salusa. But if you --"
Princess Wensicia Corrino: "Tyekanik! This is the planet Salua Secundus. Do not fall into the lazy ways which spread through our Imperium. Full name, complete title - attention to every detail."
--Children of Dune, Frank Herbert

"Every man dies, not every man really lives." -- Leeroy Jenkins

This wiki is my private, self-inflicted Hell. Rolling boulders up a hill only to see them fall down the hill again, time after time for eternity. Yet here I may reign secure, and in my choice: better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.

"I want to go with you...I can't. I do belong here. These bad people...are what I'm good at. Out-talking them, out-thinking them... it's what I am. And I like it. I like it more than anything I've ever done."

"I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it, and I was really – I felt alive." - Breaking Bad

"I...I never wanted this for you. I work my whole life, I don't apologize, to take care of my family. And I refused to be a fool dancing on the strings held by all of those big shots. I don't apologize, that's my life. But I thought that...when it was your time, that you would be the one to hold the strings...There wasn't enough time...there just wasn't enough time..."

The Doctor: "Tell me, am I a good man?"
Clara: "...I...don't know."
The Doctor: "...Neither do I."
— The Twelfth Doctor and Clara

I am a monster...who dreamt he was a man...and loved it.
But now the dream is over.
And the Dragon is awake...

On TV Adaptation

Elio Garcia: "Season 4 is a season with a lot of things that were plot holes. I mean, genuine plot holes. Where they kind of decide to do their own thing, and ignore the realities around it. Like Arya and the Hound at the Bloody Gate [announcing her name despite the fact everyone assumes she's dead, and with no repercussions]. They want to do this thing, and they don't think it through, and they don't care. They think viewers won't care - and I'm sure many viewers don't. But if you want people to treat it as a work that you can look at critically, that you can take seriously, and break it down and study it, then you have to care about the people who do that. If you don't care, if it's just entertainment, and there's no pretense to "art", then I guess it's fine."
Linda Antonsson: "You're basically pretending that you're just watching it from week to week, and you don't go back, you don't look at character arcs or anything - it just gets hollow...the idea of just shoving characters into positions because we want them to do this, we want them to do it now, without asking 'how are we going to get them there'?"
Elio Garcia: "And they think, 'forget it, people won't notice. Leave that work to the viewers to defend us by coming up with complicated, ridiculous ideas for how to explain the psychology of a character, and why it is subtley different enough to explain why they are acting differently."
— Elio and Linda, owners of Westeros.org, discuss Benioff and Weiss's sloppy changes to the TV adaptation of Game of Thrones.

To Do List

I do what needs to be done, and I get results, damn it:

I actually started adding material here in late June 2011, right after the Season 1 finale (and around the wiki's one year anniversary). At the time I was just using an anonymous account. I eventually decided that if I was contributing as much as I was I should have a username, which I created ten months later in April 2012 (just after Season 2 started). Hence the discrepancy between when it says I "joined" as this account, and when I "started adding material".

All Hail the Mother of Dragons
