Sakura's typical daydream is followed by another, this time Naoko's. She is
reading a book about a dragon and dreaming of what it would be like
to in the book's world. Sakura interrupts Naoko with an invitation for
lunch and a question about Naoko's reading material. It is called
Dragon Mountain and Naoko seems greatly enchanged with it.
Naoko explains more about the book and lunch, which makes Sakura
nervous because she doesn't like scary stories. And dragons seem as
though they are probably scary. Naoko explains that it is a fantasy
story, which Tomoyo further explains by calling it an "imagination story."
On the way home from school, Naoko notices a used book store and
asks the other girls if they want to go in. They all agree. Naoko
runs in while the others walk. About that time, Sakura senses a Clow
Card somewhere outside the store. Deciding to address that later,
the girls go into the store. While searching through the stacks, Naoko
finds a strange book without a title. Half of it is blank. Inside is
a quill pen and instructions to continue the fairy tale with your own
will. Naoko is intrigued and decides to take the book.
That night, Naoko reads the book in her room. It was about magicians, thus far.
She takes the quill and begins to write.
Meanwhile, Sakura, Syaoran, Tomoyo, Meiling and Kero-chan are on
their way home after The Big has been captured. Meiling is complaining
that it wasn't fair because the cat captured them. She and Kero get
into a minor fight. While watching them, Sakura notices a ghostly figure
of a woman in a fancy dress floating behind. Turning blue with fright,
Sakura screams and runs behind Tomoyo. Everyone turns to ask what's wrong
and she says that she saw a ghost. They all look, but see nothing. Suddenly,
the woman reappears. Sakura screams.
Back in her room, Naoko is writing about a princess. In a book that
Syaoran asks Meiling if she saw the ghost. Meiling says no. Syaoran
says that is is not a ghost, because Meiling has no magic and wouldn't
be able to see it. Kero, who is frustrated because he didn't realize
this first, asks Tomoyo if she saw it. She did. That means, it is
a Clow Card. This makes Sakura very glad and she releases her death-grip
The peace is broken as a large black panther jumps out of the bushes.
Syaoran draws his sword and jumps between the panther and the girls.
Sakura wonders if it escaped from the zoo. Then it looks at them.
The panther doesn't have eyes! Just funny squiggle marks that look
like graffiti. And then it spronts delicate pink wings and begins
to fly around. It is soon joined by a flying yellow horse and a flying
pink hippo. Meiling comments that there certainly a lot of odd animals
wandering about in Japan.
Oblivous, Naoko is writing in the book about a panther wings
and a smiling hippopotamus with with wings. She adds in that
all the other animals, even the fish, had wings.
Other strange winged animals join the menagerie flying about Sakura
and the others. Kero realizes another card must be at work and explains
that the presence of The Big made the other card hard to sense. He
marvels at the imagination of the person who has The Create, while
Sakura is snuggled by a winged cat.
Kero starts to suggest that they leave the card until the next night
when a massive wind begins to blow. Naoko is in her writing about
a big king of the winged animals. This would be, of course, the
monsterous dragon she was daydreaming about before. And it is the
cause of the wind.
The dragon flies into Penguin Park and roars. Then it begins to stalk
the park and head for the city. Syaoran tries to stop the dragon with
lightening, but it doesn't work. The dragon is too big, Kero tells him.
That jogs Kero's mind and he comes up with an idea. Sakura must use
The Big card to become large enough to fight the dragon and stop it
from crushing the city. She's not really excited about this idea.
The dragon breathes a fire ball and continues to head for the city. Kero
and Tomoyo remind Sakura of her duty as a Card Captor and she finally agrees.
This makes Tomoyo very happy. She will get some really nice video.
Sakura employs the power of The Big and enlarges herself. She
thinks it is very embarrassing to be so big and whimpers a moment
before chasing the dragon. She calls after it to wait up and finally
catches it by the tail.
Naoko continues to write, but is oblivious to what can be seen out her very
The dragon breathes a ball of fire at Sakura, forcing her to let go.
Then it chases Sakura and fires some of the park. Meiling yells
at Sakura about her inadequate magic powers. "Don't you have a beam or
something?" Syaoran says Sakura is going to loose. Even Kero looses
faith, saying Sakura doesn't know how to beat a monster.
She grabs its tail again and is pulled across the ground. It
breaks free, and then flies up and turns to face her. As Sakura cowers,
the dragon freezes and then begins to dissolve.
Naoko has closed the book and is deciding to go to sleep.
Kero tells Sakura to seal the card before it can be used again.
She taps the wand on the remaining visible parts of the dragon and all
of the Create's images are sucked away as the card forms in front of
All is well, other than poor Naoko who must face the morning without
her book. Drat.
And Sakura goes home, secure in the knowledge that if she
wanted to squashed her brother, she could. The Big is a great card.
