    If you'd live in a fantasy world (any), what would be your choice of a pet?
     
  2. A dragon, of course. They can fly, so transportation isn't an issue, and no one will dare mess with you.

    I would like to have a Rockbiter like Pjörnrachzarck (Never ending story, Michael Ende), because I'll never have to worry about feeding him or thinking he would die before me (in fact it could be my pet, and my children's pet, and even my grand-grand-grand children's pet) but it would be fun to have around to play and talk, and develop patience.

    A V-frog (Lucky Starr series, Asimov) it's also one pet I would like to have. It would transmit the mood of anyone around me giving me a great advantage in any situation and there are also fun to watch.

    Same as in this one. A dog. Nothing beats man's best friend.

  6. Except a dragon.

    (This is coming from someone who loves dogs, don't attack me.)

    Lol no. Can you imagine trying to feed the thing? You'd probably go broke within the year.

    A cat. Because cats are just better.

    How about a dragon that's been raised among cats? Best of both worlds.

    I would want a horse. They eat grass which is cheap and easy to find, and they carry you around.

    Flying Bison from avatar.

    I mean come on... come on. It flies, it's cuddly and if a bunch of travelling teens can take care of it, it can't be that difficult.

    I don't know, really. Something that can take care of itself, probably, since I can't even keep a plant alive. One of the eagles from LoTR?

    If I can somehow manage to become responsible enough to take care of an animal, I'd probably dig (pun intended) an Arcanine. It combines the qualities of a dog and a big cat, and it can breathe fire.

    "Yip yip!"

    If I remember correctly some pokemon and lotr eagles are sentient. I think owning one would technically be the same as slavery.

    Yes, the eagles in LOTR are sentient (and possibly powerful spirits on a slightly lower level than someone like Gandalf). Not a good idea to try and tame one.

  18. If not a dragon, than a huge hummingbird. Big enough to ride.
