Fan Fic / Dragonchoice

Go To
Dragonchoice and its sequels (Dragonchoice 2: Dragonchosen and Dragonchoice 3: Weyrleader of Pern) are full novel length Dragonriders of Pern fanfiction stories written by Faye Upton. Set on the Southern Continent in an AU Seventh Interval Pern, Dragonchoice follows the fate of T’kamen, a bronze rider of Madellon Weyr; his boyhood friends blue rider C’mine and green rider C’los; the young Weyrwoman Valonna; and her flawed Weyrleader L’dro. In contrast to many of Anne McCaffrey's heroines, Valonna is decidedly not a strong Weyrwoman...but she and her queen are crucial to changing Madellon's leadership for the better.

Dragonchoice 2: Dragonchosen follows directly on the heels of the first novel, running up to the hatching of Madellon's newest clutch, but the main plot is the desperate hunt to unmask a murderer at the Weyr.

The final story, Dragonchoice 3: Weyrleader of Pern is now being posted, and will conclude the story of Dragonchoice's Seventh Pass Pern.

As a bonus, the Dragonchoice novels are fully illustrated.


This Fic Provides Examples Of:

  • Aliens Made Them Do It: Dragonchoice culminates in the mating flight of the queen dragon, Shimpath. There are obligatory consequences for the human counterparts of the dragons involved. 'The dragon decides, the rider complies...'
  • Alternate Universe Fic: Set in a slightly alternate Seventh Pass, when Moreta's Plague and the Long Intervals didn't happen, and the southern continent was resettled much earlier than in canon
  • Completed Fic: Both Dragonchoice and Dragonchoice 2 are complete and novel-length
  • Dragon Rider: Like all Dragonriders of Pern fics, this trope's a given. There are dragons. People ride them.


How well does it match the trope?
