Well, personally, when I was in Fun Dragongame I had Plague, but you seem to be leaning towards the knowledge-based side of things.

Lightning Flight are the data-gatherers, iirc. They make spreadsheets about things and they call Stormcatcher Boss Mantis or whatever. I haven’t kept up on that much. But yeah, they’re a bunch of big nerds who like to get together and number-crunch as far as I’m aware. Lore-wise they’re the engineers and the builders who prize machinery and its transformative abilities - think mad scientists, visionary engineers, inventors and stuff.

Arcane Flight is for the dreamers and seers, that kind of thing. I’m fairly sure lore-wise they’re more based in the speculative and the visionary, that sort of thing. I always wrote Arcane dragon bios based on their tendency to fixate to one particular thing and follow it forever.

Light Flight is all about knowledge, knowledge, knowledge! Gathering it and storing it. Light Flight is, lore-wise, where you will get archaeologists and historians and librarians. They look into the past and gather information about the world and probably write things about it like one giant dragon university.

Thank you! These are super helpful. So, based on all of this, I am now a proud member of (drumroll)…


The Lightning flight! It was their spreadsheets that won me over. Also, a team of mad scientists under a deity-boss: I am all over that. Thanks, all!

  • the glorification of unhealthy relationships/unhealthy behavior as being normal and therefore okay

whispers Arcane All Stars into the void.

I don’t know if this is a reference to something specific or just a general endorsement, but I really really like Arcane! I’m trying to pick between them, Light, and Lightning right now. Any thoughts on what distinguishes them?

PLAGUE PLAGUE PLAGUE
roars loudly, slime oozing from between pointed teeth. PLAGUE MOTHER IS CALLING. takes off with a huge burst of air on powerful wings, flying away in a cloud of disease.

These are somewhat less likely. A wonderful flight, certainly! Just not quite my style.

3. most important things:

  1. What flight seems the most like what you want to be involved with? The lore, the theme, the deity.
  2. Eye color. If #1 is too baffling, pick which eye color you enjoy the most and think you might want all your babies too have.
  3. If #1 and #2 turn out to be failures, you have ONE FREE FLIGHT CHANGE available to you.

I personally dislike Earth eyes; I’m not that fond of brown.
BUT, I love the lore, I love the kind of people our flight is comprised of, and I love the Earthshaker. :)
The results? I stick with Earth. I can always borrow nests from good friends in other flights. ♥

Ah, thank you for the pointers! I didn’t realize that flight determines eye color; that’s good to know. Lorewise, I’m currently torn between Arcane, Light, and Lightning. They’re all very cerebral flights. The difference seems to be approach, if I’m understanding correctly: Arcane prefers the mysterious, Light the logical, and Lightning the practical. Is that about right? I’m finding it a bit harder to collect information on the deities and their personalities, or the usual kind of person in the flight. Any thoughts?

Okay, I’ve narrowed it down to Arcane, Light, or Lightning. I AM TERRIBLE AT THESE SORTS OF DECISIONS.

The thing about aromantic representation in media — or maybe representation’s not the right word, but certainly about making media that doesn’t continue to diminish and erase aromantics — is that it’s not just about making aromantic characters (who aren’t villainous or inhuman), although that’s certainly nice to have. It’s also about not presenting romance as essential to happiness or essential to humanity, and about presenting romance as equal to other types of relationship rather than romance as the peak of emotional intimacy and affection. (Making it clear that there are other kinds of love than romantic love will go a long way.)

A friendship turning romantic is not an upgrade; there’s nothing lesser about friendship. It’s just a change. It might lead to the characters becoming closer and caring more for each other than they previously did, but a switch from friendship to romance is not a prerequisite for this increase in closeness. It’s just different, not better. This is why “they’re too close to be JUST friends” is so aggravating to hear. If you want to convince me that the relationship between two characters is romantic or proto-romantic rather than platonic, come up with an argument for it being qualitatively different, because even The Sims knows that you need to do more than max out your relationship meter to turn a relationship romantic.

It’s not just about having aromantic characters, it’s about having an atmosphere that isn’t hostile to aromantics. Things like the message that you can’t have a close relationship (or a close relationship between non-relatives) without it either eventually turning romantic or being romantic all along, and that romance is something everyone wants or needs even if they aren’t currently pursuing it: these are what make for such a hostile atmosphere.
