-->'''How to get a dragon across a stream in six easy steps.'''
-->'''Step 1.''' Secure a rope around a branch. Use this to make a winch system to put the dragon in the air.
-->'''Step 2.''' Tie the rope to the dragon.
-->'''Step 3.''' Lift the dragon. Dragons are light to help them fly, so this step is actually quite easy (if the dragon cooperates)
-->'''Step 4.''' Tie the other end of the rope to a tree on the other side of the stream. Using two ropes and a person on each side, pull the dragon across.
-->'''Step 5.''' Realize that your first step ''should'' have been to tie up the pixie.
-->'''Step 6.''' Panic.
-->'''Step 7.''' Take a bath.

'''''[[http://www.fantasycomic.com/ Chasing the Sunset]]''''' is a fantasy webcomic by artists Mithandir and Alien, set in a universe called The World That Is. Here there be dragons.. and pixies.. and unicorns, fae, elves, and a human or two.

The comic follows the story of a young elf boy, Fallen Leaf ("Leaf" for short), and his friend Ayne as they travel west across the land in search of Leaf's father, who was swept away in a flood many years before. Leaf believes his father may still be alive because a traveling Bard has brought a rumor of an elf man living across the ocean. Joining Leaf and Ayne is Myhrad, a vegetarian drageling (baby dragon with the personality of a lazy housecat) whom Leaf befriended not long after his father disappeared. Another companion, far less welcome, is Feiht, a pixie who joins their quest and 'volunteers' to carry any 'shinies' they might encounter along the way.
