Update: Red Alert, There Are Cute Baby Dragons In the New How to Train Your Dragon 2 Trailer [VIDEO]

Someone keep Daenerys Targaryen away from ancient Scandinavia. I’m not sure she’d be able to resist indulging in a little spot of dragon-napping. Though I do want her and Cate Blanchett‘s character to bond.

Update: Annnd yanked for copyright reasons. We’ll look for another embed and switch it out when we find one. Hang tight, folks.

Update 2: Found it!

Quick, Watch This The Legend of Korra Book 3 Teaser Before It Gets Yanked [VIDEO]

We don’t know for sure that it will get yanked, but what with it not appearing on any official Nickelodeon YouTube channel, and considering the dialogue is in Dutch… yeah, something tells me this might go away soon.

Edit: Welp, that was quick. Yanked. Congrats to you if you watched it.

Little Girl Who Took Australia to Task for Not Inventing Dragons Finally Gets Her Wish

Two days ago we told you the story of Sophie Lester, a seven-year-old girl from Brisbane, Australia who has all lived her young life feeling the very keen sting of there not being dragons in the world. (Don’t we all?) So she wrote a letter to CSIRO, the national science agency, asking whether they could please make her one. CSIRO, perhaps won over by the way Sophie started off her letter with “Hello Lovely Scientist,” wrote her back apologizing for the grave error they made in not having invented dragons yet and promising to get on that ASAP. And now they’ve sent her one. It’s 3D printed, but that’s probably for the best. I’m not sure Australia needs any more killer lizards, especially with Steve Irwin not around.

Science Apologizes to Little Girl for Not Making Dragons

Little kids ask a lot of questions, and it’s the mark of a confident parent that when they don’t actually know why the sky is blue, they can go ask an expert. Or just make something up. But I think I know which one I’d prefer. When Sophie Lester‘s parents had to sit down with her and explain that, no matter how much she asked, they couldn’t get her a dragon for Christmas, they also suggested that she write to somebody who might be able to get her one. Sophie knew exactly what to do, and suggested that they ask a scientist.

And that’s how the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, Australia’s national science agency, wound up apologizing for not being able to create dragons yet.

Jill kindly requested that I tell you if you happen to receive a dragon figure from Funko’s new Game of Thrones Mystery Mini-Figures line that you don’t want, you can always send it to her. Any duplicate Stannis figures can be sent to me. Oh wait. There’s not a Stannis figure. There’s never a Stannis figure.

A closer look at the (still cool, even if Team Dragonstone-less) minis can be seen behind the cut. They go on sale starting February 15th, but you can preorder on the HBO store now.

How Come the Japanese and Spanish Versions of Game of Thrones Get the Cool Cover Art?

We get crowns, swords, and helmets atop lightly textured backgrounds. Readers of the Japanese and Spanish versions of A Song of Ice and Fire get works of art. It’s not fair. R’hllor will be hearing about this.

Allow me to explain: sometimes, monsters need to feel sexy, too, so artist Erika Deoude has given classic beasts of film the pin-up treatment in her 2014 Calendar of Sexy Monsters. It’s weird and funny and kind of disturbing all at the same time, and, in a way, completely delightful.
