Cabin Pressure/Dinotopia AU
Douglas Richardson is a talented Skybax rider. Smart and proud and almost fearless - borderline reckless even. But people like him, and he climbs ranks effortlessly. He and his Quetzalcoatlus Skybax become inseparable, and he feels a peace with her that he is unable to find anywhere else.
It’s only later, when he lost everything, that he learns her name for him was Caducus.
I didn’t post this for a while, because I was (am?) planning to make one for every CP character.
