In a project of mine, some people can bond with dragons. Now, I want there to be a mental link, but I do not want it to be too... clear? Maybe anthropomorphic is a more accurate term. My dragons are wild, willful beasts, and they are not easy to tame. They don’t talk, and their thoughts are all about fighting, food and... well, let’s keep it PG-13. They’re not human to any real degree, at least not more so than a snake. Basically, I want to strike a balance between a feral intelligence and a wild reptile. The dragon riders understand more about their beasts than normal people, but they don’t know everything. How should I go about this?
