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''!

In case you people have forgotten, this wiki operates under the same rules as the rest of them.
Vandals are not the law.
I AM THE LAW.

TheYoungDragon

The Dragon does not ask, it demands.

If you Wake The Dragon, The Dragon Demands.

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.

Seven Pointed Star This user worships the
Faith of the Seven

For what is often called "ruthless" 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.Edit

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!

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."

The New Number OneEdit

There's always someone else trying to be Number One.

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

QuotesEdit

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

"Everything."

-- Star Trek: Into Darkness

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

For these men who are small can never stand tall,
whilst giants still walk in the light.
"

-- The Last of the Giants

"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."

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

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

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...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..."

To Do ListEdit

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".
