BY gosh, doesnt any one believe these days that anything is possible.
Of cause you can turn into a dragon, but it would take a seveir amount of your time and energy to do so.
the only reason why most people cant shapshift is that they r too lazy to put that much energy into it.
Im not saying im not lazy, ive never shapeshifted, and im not going to spend years of training to
BUt i think the point of saying you cant is so that you dont get into a stage where after one week of performing sum raNDOM spell you found on the internet of how to turn into a dragon or watever, will get your hopes down and you may stray from the path of enlightenment.
