This piece by Evgeny Zubkov is part of a series called "Russia 2046". It's quite the #Cyberpunk trip
The princess gently buffed the whimpering dragon with a wide, soft brush; removing dull, loose scales.
"Darling, try to eat something. To keep your strength up."
The dragon shook her great head, "I'm too stressed, I'm just not hungry."

I've been working really hard the past couple of weeks building a new stats system for my web game Improbable Island.
It's a text adventure at https://www.improbableisland.com, there's a lively roleplaying community, player-owned places (with a programming engine!), hundreds of pages of story and no ads/tracking/nastystuff. We've had problems getting new players 'cause the places we used to advertise are all going offline, so if y'all could help me out with a boost that'd be much appreciated

Except one who went to the library. And then to the kitchen. And then offered the princess her favourite dessert.
