Welcome to this weeks edition of the Pagan Blog Project. I hope you'll take a moment and check out the post just previous to this as there is a tie-in... Dragons. There are pretty ones there and I'll talk about them in a witchy context here.
Yup, Dragons... what a lame topic (lol)...
So instead of focusing on Dragons in Myth I'm just going to tell you my own Dragon myths and it's up to you to discern fact from external truth from internal truth from fiction. Ready for a random ride?
2) Once upon a time there was a Bastard who took the throne, once. The King of the Dragon Court had many children, most of them bastards, but there is only one known as The Bastard. If the Bastard had been legitimate perhaps the Heir would have been free to follow his calling, but we'll never know for certain. The Bastard, motivated by the scorn of the Throne, dedicated his learning to politics and martial weapons and became the most feared potential opponent of his father. This fear was well grounded as one day the Bastard used all his skill, defeated the King, sent him to the the dungeons and claimed the Throne, for at least a little while; a feat not matched before or since.
