Drinking Tropes: Dragon Bound (to the ER)

Quite a number of individuals argued that dragons prefer debauchery to all other past-times (such as amassing treasure, devouring their enemies, or acquiring the knowledge of the universe).

I beg to differ. Thankfully, Fangs for the Fantasy invented the perfect medium through which to survive this endeavor. The Paranormal Romance Drinking Game. A true stroke of genius. For every trope, we drink. Huzzah!*

My Thoughts:
I will be honest, the events of The Killing Dance nearly had me walk away from this series and not look back.

Anita’s character for me in The Killing Dance took a nosedive. …
