Dragon-Of-Sapphire gave me a llama badge and I wrote the following on their profile to thank them. What other comments have you seen people write in response to llamas?

*

Kneeling in the forest clearing, quivering in fear, I peer through the bars of the cage and gaze up into your eyes, trembling not only from the breeze on my bare skin...

but today my fear is unfounded...

you unlock the cage and feed me with still-warm gruel, a meal that might even have contained some meat... and did not beat me...

you lean down and fastened a cloak around my neck, a cloak of coarse wool—wait! not just any wool—rainbow llama wool! But such a cloak can only be worn by... no... I cannot be granted such a privilege...it is death for any but a rider to wear such a cloak... are you playing with me?

you lead me out of the clearing, between tall pine trees, the ground soft but cold under my feet, your boots not wavering at the occasional puddle of deep mud, then, without warning, you veer to one side and march through tall ferns and bracken...

and there...

another open clearing, smaller...

with grass and no fire-pit, no cage...

the beams of morning sun shine down and I'm dazzled for a moment... nothing could be so bright, so beautiful...

your gruff voice, “Kneel boy,” spoken with no idea that I might not obey, no need to doubt it, “kneel. When he comes to you he is yours. You may leave.”

and all the months of fear and terror, the cold, the hunger, the cage, the training, the lessons and the beatings, all is set aside in one blaze of light as I kneel...

Walking towards me, walking slowly, deliberately, yet without any hesitation, at first still silhouetted against the light but now emerging, I see the full glory and fight the urge to dive to the ground, to put my belly into the mud and worship, fight the urge to run, shout down inside that cry of “I am not worthy” because today I have been judged, today the trial is over, today I am found worthy...

And now I am flying over the forest, circling, give a single salute in farewell, in thanks to the man who devoted so much time to shape me...

...to make me what I now am...

A rider of the Rainbow Llama.

Thank you.
