This is why the great, sensitive dragons of Pern hurl themselves through the flaming skies, flaming gouts of scorching fire to destroy thread before it can reach the ground. This is why Pern desperately needs her dragons, and her dragonriders--... more »and why no rider can afford to fight with another. For when dragon and rider are one, anger between riders can cause desperate agony to the great beasts--and a real rift could be the deathknell of Pern.
