Short Story: Dragonfly Wrangling 102

Sigh. I’m bored. So that means you get a very, very brief recap of another lost Avalon short story that was posted on the old official website: Dragonfly Wrangling 102.

Kara wants to go clothes shopping with the Catty Girl Posse, but her nameless mom won’t let her go until she cleans up her room. Kyle refuses to help because he has soccer practice. Kara promised the rest of the party that she wouldn’t use her new Unicorn Jewel without supervision … but she never promised to not call the dragonflies. So the dragonflies show up, and Kara orders them to organize her stuff while she’s gone.

Kara returns hours later, and discovers that everything in the house was organized to spell out her name. She manages to scold the dragonflies for messing everything up, and then commands them to put everything back where they belonged. Of course, this means that Kara’s room is a total sty again, which doesn’t go over well with Kara’s mom when she returns. Kyle likes that his posters are now arranged in the shape of a ‘K’, though.

Yeah, not much happened. This story is never referenced later on in the series, so this is all you’ll get to hear of it.

Next time: first impressions on Song of the Unicorns and the Quest for Magic series in general.

  1. That was strange, but I still found it cute. I wish it was added to the revised Trial by Fire as a bonus, or at least reposted to the new website.

  2. Kara’s mom probably has more to do in this story than in the entire rest of the series.

    Why do both Dragonfly Wrangling stories have the same URLs? Did one eventually replace the other on the old site?

    1. Yeah, that’s exactly what happened. You had to click on a little floating dragonfly graphic to access the story originally. Unfortunately, the old site didn’t bother to archive any of the older stories.
