Name: Dragon of Desire
Once there was a dragon who lay asleep for near an eternity, for some reason he woke up right at the end of humanity. Under the weight of rubble he started to escape, pushing away the collapsed parts of a castle that covered his way. On the ground lay skeletons of soldiers, men, "Did I slay all of them?" asked the dragon, but answers he had none.
Without a memory of his own life, the dragon made his way towards the light. Out of the darkness and destruction he escaped, only to find that no soul was in sight. He found no humans, no animals, only their remains, "What has the world come to?!" the dragon spoke no longer restrained.
He looked up to the sky and felt familiarity, then said "If I fly up I should find someone this way!". He jumped as high as he could but to the ground he returned, "Why can't I fly?" he asked with an almost broken nerve. One glance behind him revealed the truth, his pair of wings weren't there somehow. As his horror built up he discovered more, that his strong scales and beloved tail were no more.
With sadness the dragon started marching, without any direction his hope was slowly fleeing. Many days passed, weeks and months, years as well but an encounter he had not.
Then one night as he looked to the stars, he found a little being glowing from afar.
"Hello lonely dragon, this is a surprise I say, to find a creature still living up to this day!"
"What happened to everyone and what are you?" asked the dragon.
"I am a fairy of wishes, for that I exist. The world's inhabitants have been gone from the book of the living's list." replied the fairy.
"Then can you bring back everyone?" asked the excited dragon.
"I am a fairy but not all powerful, to bring back a lost life is something to me that is impossible." she said.
"I have lost my memories, can you bring them back?" the dragon asked with a hint of dismay.
"I'm afraid that cannot be. Memories, emotions, thoughts, life and things without physical form, those are the walls, my power's limitations." the fairy said.
"Then what can you do? For a magical fairy it seems magic you have not?!" the dragon sneered.
"Oh but I am not a magical fairy! I am a fairy of science, a creation of technological triumph! My kind was made to store knowledge and wisdom! What I can do is re-create things from recorded knowledge." she replied.
The dragon sat for a little while, pondering the situation of his present time, then came the inspiration that sparked in his mind, "Maybe if I learned more about how the world used to be, we'll find out what they knew about me!"
The fairy floated gently downwards, from her eyes came images by the millions, the dragon gazed and started to understand, how great once was man.
Thousands of years of history, art and technology, the recorded information could reach infinity, and when the dragon's interest was finally lit, the fairy asked, "To learn about this, is that your desire?".
