  1. Hi everyone, I got a(nother) request to join the SLP Google site. It might be a bot or something but just in case, if anyone wants to join the site, please PM me on DC so I know who you are. Thanks!
  2. Hi everyone, I just wanted to remind anyone interested in being a contributor at the SLP webpage, please PM me with the email of your Google account. I've been getting random requests which I've been ignoring because I wasn't sure whether they were legit requests so if you've been ignored, just contact me via PM and I'll add you! Thanks!
  3. Hi! I got a request to the SLP website directly through e-mail. Just to make sure that it's someone from the forums and not a random person, please PM me to be added on as collaborator. Thanks!
  4. Thanks, JaneMcAsh. lol. Fertile metallics? Well, at least some portion of the DC population is happy, right?
  5. Wow. I haven't been keeping up with the lineage myself since I went semi-inactive. I'm surprised to hear of the difficulties with breeding. Karobb, what lineage and what generation do you need? I could try breeding for you if you'd like. It would at least give you more couples working for you to move forward with the project.
  6. Hi! Sorry for dropping out of sight. Just wanted to post to say that my inbox is open to receiving PM's if anyone who isn't already on it wants to use the *coughforgottencough* website to keep track of their dragons and their lineages. Just send me a PM and, assuming the e-mail doesn't keep getting caught in my Spam box, I should reply within a few days.
  7. As well as the fact that we are limited to two. Despite the multiple drop locations, I was still unable to get a single Halloween this year so I don't think that that was the only factor.
  8. Thanks, TJ! I'm shocked by how easily and quickly I managed to catch my two just now. o.O
  9. Pretty happy with the changes so far. Thanks a lot!
  10. Collector. I want CB pairs (a certain number of them) of each dragon. But I'm also trying to help clear the AP of unwanted commons so I'll continue raising CB commons from the AP to adulthood, and freeze the Lineaged ones for my hatchling army. Exception made for mints which are most adorable in the adult form. I'll raise them, CB or Lineaged, to adulthood regardless of whether they are clean-lineaged or inbred. Used to be a breeder but now more of a casual, lineage-based breeder than an indiscriminate one.
  11. Excellent choice. Very excited about the upcoming changes. Thanks!
  12. Book Number: 148 Number Of Pages: 336 Book Title: The Sleeping Beauty Author: Mercedes Lackey Rating: 2/5 Review: Positives: unicorn scenes; some humor; smart, fairly capable heroines; likable heroes; mix of fairy tales and mythology; happy ending for all "good" involved Negatives: writing style that "tells" through lots and lots of character introspection and shows off how clever everyone is; strong and distinct author's voice which takes me out of the story and makes me hear the author, not the characters [Note: What I disliked about this book was a matter of personal taste dev
  13. Oh, yes. That was probably one of the saddest things I've ever watched. The ending of Hachi also made me cry.
  14. I hope you enjoy the rest of the series although many claim that only the first several books are good and that the series deteriorates after that. As for myself, I liked all the books. I prefer it to Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series (not a huge fan of preaching authors) and George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series (not a huge fan of authors who kill off favorite characters ).
  15. Don't know if I posted here already but...I speak English (my dominant language) and some Korean. I suppose if I really cudgeled my brain, I could come up with a few Spanish and German which is sad since I've had 4.5 years of Spanish studies and 2 years of German. If it came to reading and writing, I can probably read and write at the 1st or 2nd grade level for Korean and Spanish, and about 3rd or 4th grade level for German (or I did about a year ago). Took a semester of Japanese once thinking it'd be an easy elective. I was soooo wrong. In about two years, I'd like to pick u

    C.S.Lewis

    I love The Chronicles of Narnia. I reread it at least once a year. I tried to read Surprised by Joy for summer reading many years ago but was so bored by it that I never finished it. Fortunately for me, my teacher did not require a short summary when school started. I might try finishing it some day. I hope that now that I am older, I might appreciate it better. I have The Screwtape Letters in my to-read pile. @Lady_DragonRider: I also have the Radio Theater set of The Chronicles of Narnia. I don't normally enjoy audiobooks but I like this one.

  18. @Ladyfish: Have your read C.L. Wilson's Tairen Soul series? The two authors are friends and Wilson's series is very like Feehan's Dark series.
  19. @Kanaye: I'm glad you enjoyed No Souvenirs. I recently purchased more Kindle e-books if you want to borrow them. I'll PM you about them. Book Number: 120 Number Of Pages: 265 pgs [e-book] Book Title: Lethal Obsession: Caged [e-book] For mature readers Author: Michele L. Montgomery Rating: 1.5/5 Review: Not quite my cup of tea. Book Number: 121 Number Of Pages: 533 pgs Book Title: Jane Eyre [e-book; reread] Author: Charlotte Brontë Rating: 3/5 Review: Watching the movie gave me a greater appreciation for this book. I was surprised to have enjoyed reading this
  20. lol. err, I wouldn't. It took me many tries over the course of several years to finally complete One Good Knight. I swapped it through Paperbackswap.com once I was done. I liked the book after One Good Knight, and have been waiting for Sleeping Beauty to be available on PBS, but may just borrow it from the library next month. Regarding Lethal Obsession, I checked the Amazon.com page. Under Product Details, it says: Lending: Enabled. I have Kindle for PC as well. 1. To lend, you go to your Kindle Library. I do that by going to My Account and then "View Your Kindle Orders". 2. Fin
  21. Nope. I've got an exam to study for. >__< And I've been intending to participate since last year. @Kanaye: Is Lethal Obsession Kindle-lendable? If it is and there isn't someone else you plan on lending it to, may I borrow it? @Shalarean: I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis. She's a new-to-me author that I recently purchased because I really liked the cover. lol. I haven't read it yet and am glad that I won't end up hating the book!

  22. Book Number: 110 Number Of Pages: 280 pgs Book Title: Princess of the Midnight Ball Author: Jessica Day George Rating: 3/5 Review: It's a retelling of the 12 dancing princesses. I liked it although the characters were a bit bland. I think what intrigued me the most was the emphasis that it wasn't romantic to be caught in such a spell, when you have to dance even when you are so sick you can barely walk. One would think that despite your misery, as a princess, you would hide your misery and dance, but in this book, we have princesses who are literally sobbing as they dance. Granted,
  23. @Kanaye: I do use Paperbackswap but by freebie, I meant that I got it when Amazon.com offered the Kindle e-book for free as a promotion.

  24. Ah, meant to ask that first. Sorry. How do you rate Anansi Boys then?
  25. @Kanaye: I have Book 1 of the Bay City series. I think I got it as a freebie. What did you dislike about it? @lightbird: How was Anansi Boys compared to American Gods? I've been meaning to read Anansi Boys for a while but I didn't like American Gods as much as I did Neverwhere so I've been putting it off. @Danne: Have you read The Iron Duke by Meljean Brooks? I heard that that was really good. And yeah, the Abyss Feeders are definitely creepy.
