Being an enclycopedic type formalist (why I'm here on this wikia) I must question, then protest the lame use of the word and concept of TAME whereas it pertains to Dragons. I found this paragraph as I was proofreading for errors:

"Dragons can be tamed; Aegon the Conquerer commanded three tame dragons in battle". "The process used to tame them has been lost due to their long absence." I even located on the book wikia a sentence that said a horn could be used to .. "tame" them. This is all so wrong it makes me spit my coffee all over my keyboard.

Starting with the defintion of tame; brought from wildness into a domesticated or tractable state. Tractable? Really? Easily managed or controlled, governable, obedient?

Dragons cannot be tamed. They can be trained but only if they have a relationship with the owner, a bond of some sort. Reading the histories available on both the sites, here and there, there and here do I find any facts in the writing to support the idea that dragons have any amount of tame within them.

Certainly I wanted to edit that out but restrained myself after realizing that it might be ill advised, hence my new blog, hoping to get this out in the open for criticism. I think that paragraph should be edited to remove not only the words of tame but its totally lame concept.Susan Ae (talk) 15:09, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
