It's all about perspective, I can create fantasy worlds better when the time period is medieval or older but like to test myself with future settings. One thing I find very difficult to do however is anything to do with space travel/multiple planets or galaxies.

I only write High-Fantasy Sci-Fi. Because I'm not good with not being able to fly on a dragon instead of inside a metal box that certain people call a 'dreadnought'.

High Sci Fi means Scifi fantasy right? Like Star Wars rather than Star Trek? Because if so then that's what I lean towards more. Though itd be really cool to write like Greg Bear or Arthur C Clarke.

Recent Hard Sci fi that I read was Absolution Gap by Alistair Reynolds. Ex astronomer and now novelist. Really something else to read. I hope to read more of his books soon.

Space Dragons with logical explanations. Is what I lean towards.

I also aim towards originality... so I don't think I've ever heard of space dragons that aren't Mecha... sadly... Maybe Grimlock?

I have some dragons that live in a crashed spaceship and there was a dragon in Ben 10 that was revealed to be an alien.

Oh I didn't see that one. And which story is that from?

Grimmlock almost fits the bill. Interesting. I wonder if this is prime territory for exploration. No chance of making it not sound comedic though!

My story is Melody Box (The "sequel" to Lunar Legend).
It was mentioned in here, but I didn't give much info on it.

Ah. So they live in that space ship. Does the crash happen in the first story or this one ? Also it seems apocalyptic to me. Gotta wonder how the humans have the strength to take on dragons. I always wonder how they have a chance haha

On second thought no not now. I'll have to get to reading your story at a point when I find the time.
