Fantasy Humor Gulliver quirky surreal

Antimony needs a man like the Academy of Lagado needs a paper bicycle. As its new Chancellor, she is determined to bring the Swiftian institution into the modern world. So, why has a Komodo dragon arrived on her doorstep with a sign saying Marry Me around its neck? And how can she get rid of it? A lightheated story inspired by Gulliver's Travels.


A Komodo Dragon wanders around its enclosure in the hope of finding something to eat. They are the biggest type of lizard in the world and are found on a few islands in Indonesia.
