captive prince chatter: whenever i see the name smaurent i always think of a dragon, so if laurent were to be turned into a dragon, how do you think things would go?
This is a lovely question that I am very much interested in!
I imagine Dragon!Laurent to be a sort of werewolf type thing. Or like an a/b/o fic.. he shifts once a month (or three) for a couple of days at most. Maybe as the years go by and he researches more about the subject he learns how to control it and shift at will, but mostly it’s just a thing that happens and then he’s back to normal. (Honestly i just can’t think about Damen living the rest of his life without Human!Laurent at his side)
I went on a dragon hunt to try and find a photo of a dragon I could use to describe Dragon!Laurent but as it turns out I’m either very bad at looking for dragons or that dragon does not exist.
So I’ll just describe him for you then - Dragon!Laurent is actually very similar to Human!Laurent. The first thing you notice about him is that he’s very pale. He’s not white, he’s not sand coloured - but he is very very pale. Next this are his piercing blue eyes. Same exact shade as Human!Laurent. Only after you’ve recovered from the colour shock do you realise he’s also very very big. Laurent isn’t even a foot shorter than Damen - let’s not forget that. Dragon!Laurent is MASSIVE. He’s also very strongly built. Very thick and long neck, strong sharp and long tail. Body is slim but strong. When he spreads his huge ass fucking wings they’re so pale they’re practically see-through.
He’s a fussy dragon. Fussier than Human!Laurent. He doesn’t like being ridden much. He takes to flying like a fish to water tho. Incredible speed, height, accuracy.
He’s smart too. Freakishly so. Humanly so. He’s very imposing.. makes you feel like he’s watching and cataloging your every move. Which he is. But where Human!Laurent did it quietly and secretly - Dragon!Laurent does so openly. That’s not to say he isn’t sneaky. He’s unnaturally stealthy for a creature that size. He can soar and land in almost absolute silence.
He’s also a pampered dragon. He likes the beach on a sunny day.. he likes it when Damen brings him his meat already dead and skinned by butchers so he doesn’t have to deal with the mess himself. He also likes it when Damen touches him. He likes when Damen leans on him and reads. Or sleeps. He likes feeling like he’s protecting Damen. He only ever lets `Damen ride him, and only when they have to. Or if Damen looks a little sad. (every version of Laurent knows how to make Damen happy)
Feel free to add on your own Dragon!Laurent stories - I’d love to read then all!!!
