A Gargoyle and her dragon by Quachir A Gargoyle and her dragon by Quachir
This is Pleiades and her duowinged green dragon, Gaviaktrath. Of course this is during the day thus why Pleiades is in her stone sleep. Normally this would not happen however as Pleiades is usually the wearer of one of the seven pendents of the former Timewalker Clan, now Pern Clan, Sun Amulet. She however at this time felt she needed some true and restful sleep, thus why the pendent was given to the new clan leader, and dragonrider, Jilly to let another wear it for the day.

Short is that I entered this in the MGC . It's my first entry into the MGC so I don't expect much in the way of voting on my sketch. I think there's many that have a better look than my own.

The dragon design was originally by Tiyanni.
Pleiades however is my own creation.
Pern is of course (c) to Anne McCaffrey

This has me completely inspired. I can totally see gargoyles from long ago China befriending dragons as pets if they didn't have gargoyle beasts.

I like how it' keeping watch while she sleeps. how cute!

Actually, Gaviaktrath (the dragon) is not a pet, she's bonded to Pleiades. They have had a mental connection ever since her hatching. They bonded/impressed to one another on an alternate Pern (definitely not canon/traditional Pern, neither would exist there). Best way to describe it without getting into the books I guess is that they, like other dragons and their dragonriders on Pern, are connected to the point that if one dies the other is compelled to follow. They know each others thoughts because of their connection, they really can't sever that even if they wanted to.

It's a bit late at night for me to make a more comprehensible thought on this... Probably what would make more sense because of the dragon choosing the rider would be "Every dragon needs a rider" ;P

Thanks for the comment.
