This is an amazing start to a very inventive, unusual premise. I will have several good things to say about both of your current chapters. When, I have some more time for internet. I will be away from internet for the next little while. I might also add, you may not get a lot of reviews for a bit here. Several of the old "regulars" here try to give up fan-fiction for Lent! I suspect you will get a ripple on Saint Patrick's Day, then more after Easter. And I will have a lot of good things to say, when I can get back to this!

Author Reply: Hey, take your time! There's no pressure to review, especially since I'm not exactly the best at leaving feedback for all the authors whose work I've read either. Quite the contrary, actually, and this is aside from my habitual procrastination. So, say whatever you'd like, good or bad, say nothing more--it's fine by me! You've already been very kind, to not call this premise what it is: crack, pure crack. XD

A most unexpected event, finding himself feeling sympathy for the horror that had been Smaug! Now, to find out what kind of being the dragon is as an infant.

Author Reply: Yes, Smaug was a horror, wasn't he? That he's an unrepentant murdering psychopath is something that tends to get a bit lost, I find, in his villainous charm, wit, and hugely impressive screen presence, lol. At the same time, dragons or at least the great ones seem intelligent creatures, which to me implies the power of choice (free will). I hope to eventually explore how dragons may have come about, way back when Melkor was still mucking things up around Arda, in this AU. But that's for the future! For now, thanks for the comment!

An intriguing start! I'm looking forward to where you are going with this story.

Author Reply: Thank you! (Sorry it's taken me so long to reply!) It's funny, but I don't believe I or the original prompter had much in mind for this story besides some cute baby dragon antics. Then less than halfway in my complete inability to write plotless crack struck again, and now I've a full-fledged AU where I'll have to think hard about the political consequences of Smaug's survival, among other things. Anyways, thanks again for reading!
