when people in movies and junk turn into dragons its always like, "oh no, its so terrible, they've become the embodiment of their [envy/anger/greed] how do we fix this" and not like "wow you're a rad dragon now. i respect your life choices". i just think people should be more supportive
You'll also note that it is never like, lust that is embodied. Never see a dragon making ill advised hookups at the nightclub.
dragons embody higher consciousness in asian mythology

@chr normal brain: oh no, you've become the embodiment of you greed
