The Search For a Perch

The Iron Perch
For Ivan is, and always will be, King of the Castle. Observe his heroic pose which has absolutely *not* been practised in the mirror…

 

Everyone knows that a key part of any dragon’s duty is to find the perfect perching spot and dominate the landscape from it!

(Everyone does know that, right?)

Ivan the Wyvern has truly made his dragon-ancestors proud by finding not only a comfortable perch, but one inside an iron tree! The perfect combination of a dragon’s favourite things – treasure and comfortable perches – right there!

The trick, of course, will be to make sure that he doesn’t sneeze fire at the wrong moment and set the candles alight, or this perch won’t be nearly as comfortable!

Who’s a good dragon? Ivan is, of course! Ivan is the *best* dragon, yes he is!

 

 

 

 

Sadly, I’m not sure that Ivan’s grasped that imposing perches aren’t supposed to make you look more cute! Ah well, one can only practice one thing at a time, I suppose…

Happy St David’s (Snow) Day!

Ivan’s never seen snow before, and he’s been giddy with excitement!

Obviously he had to go out and play in it!

No one told him that his tail would get cold though – well, I tried to tell him that maybe dragons should fly over the snow, but there’s only one way to learn…

Later on, the snow was much higher, but very small dragons must keep warm somehow.

Snow Day!
There’s only a little bit of snow right now, but then again, Ivan’s only a little dragon…
Garden Perching
It’s important to find the very best spot from which to watch the snow come down. Snow’s not much fun to nest on, mind…

The final verdict from much experientation is that snow is hard to hoard, not to mention cold and wet. The search for a good thing to hoard continues, it seems…

Ivan’s open to suggestions!

Stained Window and Snow
The gleam of stained glass and the softness of snow – how could a dragon ask for more? A concerned friend does seem to be trying to ‘rescue’ Ivan from his great height though…

Of course, today is St David’s Day, and as a proud dragon, Ivan the Wyvern felt the need to celebrate in style! The kitchens chased him away before he could steal a leek, but after a lot of wading through the snow drifts (hey, they’re much bigger when you’re much smaller!) at last! There was to be found a single, slightly battered daffodil.

Ivan was very pleased with himself. Happy St David’s Day, Everyone!

Snow Daffodil and Dragon
It took some searching, but Ivan was a determined dragon and refused to give up until he found a lone surviving daffodil…

Well, Ivan will be back soon! If you’re just now meeting him, catch up with his exploits here.

The Stationary Thief

Sooo… So I think Ivan heard somewhere that dragons are the world’s greatest hoarders, and he seems keen to get some practice in early!

To be fair to him, he does seem to have an affinity for the most bright and colourful of all my stationary. He looks pretty proud of his tiny hoard, doesn’t he?

The Great Stationary Hoarder!
The Mighty Dragon must survey his wealth from a position of height!
Taking a Tumble!
Of course, having the High Ground means you’ve got further to fall too… Thankfully tails have many uses!
Colourful and Valuable
Colour is important – a well-chosen hoard should reflect the dragon who guards it, after all!
Behold, My Stationary Wealth!
Ivan the Wyvern, caught mid-gesture as he shows off the fine hoard he has acquired while his writer was distracted.

It almost seemed a shame to confiscate all my stationary back at the end of the day, but needs must! Hopefully Ivan can find something else to guard for a while…
