Re: The Colorless Dragon Thread
Memories are what we know them to be. Feelings are immediate and often unprocessed.
True, but feelings aren't what I mean. The shared knowledge can be influenced by other things. For instance, if the human partner only knows street slang or a certain dialect, that's all the dragon partner will know after "learning" the language. Any missing pieces or misunderstandings are shared along with the knowledge.
Maybe the dragons have to learn that humans feel disgust about dragon-style hunting?
In general, humans believe that dragons are vicious beasts with no intelligence and dragons believe that humans (and all other races) are irritating and squishy pests, also with no intelligence. It's one of the reasons that dragons are so high-minded. They've never communicated with any of the other races before and have always thought they were the only beings of intelligence. The rest of the social implications will likely be dealt with in books beyond the current trilogy that I have planned (or at the very least, the last book of the trilogy).
