What A Fright by SilverSlinger What A Fright by SilverSlinger
Happy Nightmare Night everypony!

The one question everyone will probably have about this comic: Do dragons molt? I don't know. I've never owned one. I do know dragons are reptiles, though, and pretty much all reptiles shed their skin. If you disagree with my logic, try not to lose sleep at night over it okay? ;)

I do not sleep so no problem there. Also, the dragon has special skin that is fireproof. If they were to molt the skin underneath would be soft for a bit leaving the dragon unprotected. Try and fight MY logic.

Then a dragon would avoid lava and other dragons for a little while, the same way a crab does when it molts.

well, nobody really said anything about fireproof skin, so nobody fought with your logic :P

The bright side of this, is that Spike could make a fortune selling his molted skins to blacksmiths looking to make heat-resistant armour...!

This reminds me of the Sparity Fic, On Pins and Needles. Spike molts in that one, and uses the shell to gross out Twilight.

Here you go.

One of my favourites, because it's told from Rarity's POV for the most part, and the fact that it doesn't shy away from the age difference, but treats it with care and sympathy.

Haha, the best part is that's totally something spike would probably do.

>"Do dragons molt? I don't know. I've never owned one. I do know dragons are reptiles, though, and pretty much all reptiles shed their skin."

That's the fun part about dragons: they're depicted in so many ways they they're even more diverse than humans are. :D It's more than likely there are dragon species that are both reptile or non-reptile, and some that molt, some that don't. Like, for example, the dragons in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles are reptilian and shed their skin from time to time (can't remember if they were cold-blooded or not), whereas the dragons in the Inheritance Cycle don't seem to shed their skin at all (correct me if I'm wrong), were decribed as being somewhat feline despite having scales, and have a blood temperature much higher than that of most creatures, humans included (when some of Saphira's blood dripped onto Eragon in the first book, it burned him and he panicked briefly in an attempt to get it off him). We're not given much information about Equestrian dragons either way, so for all we know, they could. ;P
