    uh, thats actually a parody of her books… and regardless it wouldn’t be plagiarism if its from an ancient text, if that were true thin every book ever written is plagiarizing something. Like the similarity of JRRTs dwarfs religious beliefs and Norse mythology’s Valhalla. There is a difference form utilizing others ideas and plagiarism. PERN is an acronym for Parallel Earth, Resources Negligible, and is a play on Pernis apivorus, the Honey Buzzard, often call the Pern which is what she basted the Firelizards in her books after. I majored in ancient language and history with a emphases in literature, my theses was on the interconnectivity of fantasy books so if study this stuff for awhile…if you want to harp on someone for plagiarizing go after Eregon, or The “His Dark Materials” books (the Golden Compass), the tile of his series is a direct quote from anther book.

    Uh, Stacy, it’s a mildly sarcastic joke. Nice grammatical typos, btw.
