D – Most Dastardly Dragon – Literary Smackdown #AtoZChallenge 2016
Greetings and welcome to day 4 of the AtoZChallenge. Who doesn’t love a great dragon? Today we have two of the really big hitters for everyone to decide who is the most dastardly of them all!
The dragon that drove the Dwarves from Erebor and laid waste to the town of Dale 150 years before Tolkein’s The Hobbit. This is one fearce creature; intelligent, malevolent and very powerful, Smaug is a match for almost anything. His downfall is his greed as he guards his hoard of gold obsessively. He has gold and gem stones embedded in his hide, but Bilbo found his one weakness, a small bare patch of skin. A fire-drake of imense power, is he worth your vote?

This dragon likes to eat virgin girls and feeds them to her brood. She is from Disney’s Dragonslayer. In it she faces an apprentice wizard, but she if virtually indestructible thanks to her scales. Not even being buried alive can do anything but annoy her. She is a formidable enemy and only magic and sacrifice can beat her. Does the cruncher or virgin bones have your vote?
Do you love dragons? Do you have a favourite who is not one of our dastardly pair? Tell us about them in the comments.
