  1. 1 hour ago, Marrionetta said:

    I didn’t write an at the dance scene, just the invitation.

    And it was very cute, in that friendly squabbling sort of way. :)

    Thank you for clearing that up ! The ending is fine for me, I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss something.


  2. I just tried the Tsoko event route. There is no "evening" or dance on day 7. Is that the usual ending, or did it bug out on me ?

    Because so far (in other story lines), after agreeing to go to the dance there was the "starry sky" picture for the evening, followed by some texts about what happens at the dance. Then The End.

    Or did I get the message wrong, and wasn't invited after all ? After class met with Tsoko in the kitchen, talked about going to the dance together and it being a "real date" and the last thing I get is him saying "You're not leftovers. You're the main dish." And then "The End". I'm confused.


  3. Since you are talking about Green Gemshard x Heartstealer - let me throw in the Blue Gemshard variant for that !

    Blue Gemshard x Heartstealer

    Striped River was mentioned already.

    I also recommend Anagallis with them. Or, if you can stomach holiday x holiday, peaceful Aegis ! Silver Herald gives a similar colour scheme that's also beautiful.

     

    catstaff's Gaia x Rosebud idea looks great. And that Radiant Angel x Starsinger Keileon shows is really tempting as well !

     

    Oh, and since Val lineages with Terrae were mentioned: Terrae x Soulstone is a great pair, I think ! (Will continue it this year.)

    And my friend dragonlilly is doing Terrae x Arsani. I would've done it as well, if I had more space. But she promised me an offspring once the lineage is done.

     

    I think catstaff is right about Aethers, they should be a perfect fit for any light pink Vals, and a great one for most of the others as well. (The only ones I'm not sure about are Soulstones, Heartseekers and maybe Heartstealers because of their more intense colours.)


  4. Since the Heartseekers are my favourite I'll start with them. 😉

     

    My newest project:

    Heartseeker x Garland 2nd gen  (I'll make a 3rd gen this Valentine's.)

    Also on the newer side:

    x Candelabra 3rd gen (Couldn't find a bloodswap for this, so it seems to be seriously underappreciated.)

    x Spirit Ward 3rd gen (This is especially beatiful when the Spirits are in their lower glow phases, like now between 5 and 6 am cavetime, but it still looks nice with the other forms.)

    x Antarean 3rd gen

    It gets a bit more complicated to plan for Hybrids, but I think these two lineages are worth it:

    x Storm Rider 4th gen

    x Avatar of Creation 4th gen

    The real beauty of these will start to show at 5th gen, I think.

    Then there are the classics. Bred by quite a few people, and for good reason:

    x Shadow Walker 5th gen

    x Royal Blue 5th gen

    x Golden Wyvern 5th gen

    x White 5th gen

    x Rosy Solstice 5th gen (Antlers !)

    x Silver Lunar Herald was mentioned already. 4th gen (Still couldn't find a 4th gen bloodswap. Hopefully that will change till next year.)

    x Golden Lunar Herald works just as well. 3rd gen

     

    And I discovered a few combinations that I love just as much, but don't seem to be the standard (so please take a look at these!):

    x Water 4th gen

    x Tan Ridgewing 4th gen

    x Imperial Fleshcrown 4th gen

    x Grey/Storm 4th gen

    x Autumn Seasonal 4th gen (Lots of chocolate brown.)

    x Blue Solstice 5th gen (Antlers !)

    x Harvest 5th gen

    x Bronze Lunard Herald 4th gen

     

    Basically, Heartseekers look good with a lot of things, so here are some more: Fever Wyvern, MagmaIce, Red-finned Tidal, Coastal Waverunner, Winter Seasonal, Mageia Xeno, Moonstone

     

    And this year I'll probably start Heartseeker x Freckled (like this) and either Heartseeker x Razorcrest (like this) or Heartseeker x Starsinger (like this)

     

    Guess I'll have to add the other breeds later, but I totally approve of Radiant Angel x Mistletoe ! I couldn't find a swap for this 4th gen, despite it being such a beautiful pair.

     

     

     


  5. Ohhh, look - the Starsingers are here !!

    They are gorgeous - and they got their very own description !!

    I love that I can read about those beautiful dragons right away, so hopefully this will replace/add to the generic "holiday dragon" text in years to come as well.

     

    A lovely concept, and very well implemented.

    I especially love their wings (wonderful colours), their beacons, the fluffy tail, and their "opera singer pose" ! All those gold/bronze/cream/icy blue tones come together so well, creating such a festive, glowing, and still understated elegance.

     

    Thank you so much, NiramiTheRaven196 and Shiny Hazard Sign !!

    And thank you, TJ, for selecting this dragon, and for letting it have its own description !


  6. @Chatdweeb

    There are no CB blue-winged Solstices. All CBs are rosy-winged, regardless of the time of day they were caught. The blue-winged ones are bred-only (during daytime). So just keep the egg and you'll get a rosy-winged CB.


  7. Lineages I need:

     

    Can offer bloodswaps or things from my List of Holiday Lineages (look under "Solstice pairs" for Solstices, and under "Other Christmas" for everything else) !

    All ancestors on my scroll will be named if a lineage is traded.

    Please PM to arrange a time for breeding/trading !

  9. To figure out the look of a lineage, I used to use some Corel Draw program. Take a standard lineage mock-up background (the ones used in the various "Breeding Plans" threads), and put in the little pictures of the different dragons of interest. (Which I usually got by using some windows snipping tool.) My old computer died on me, though, and the new one didn't come with a free Corel program, so I'm a bit at a loss on that front.

     

    For the actual bookkeeping of the lineage breeding I use an Excel sheet, similar to relaks.

    It looks like this:

    Spoiler

    Lineage.JPG.aafd15129b555e19c2d5f6f75ee302ea.JPG

    I plan out the whole lineage, writing up the breeds I want to make in each generation. Once I got the egg I need, I add its code to the appropriate place. That way, I can easily find the pairs I want to breed by copying the code, and can see how far I've gotten at any given point. If the breeding is time sensitive or irregular due to breeding mechanisms, I add the next breeding date for that pair (like I did in this older example for the Bronze Lunar Herald).

    Since you can always insert new, empty lines and columns in any position it wouldn't be a problem to expand the lineage afterwards by writing more stuff above, for example.

    This example is the plan for the lower half of my "Everchanging dragons" lineage. I copy-pasted it out of the whole to keep the picture size manageable. 😉

    Oh, and usually I tend to work from right to left, like the progress in the lineage view, just adding new columns on the left when I need them. This one I did the other way around, though.

    And if you have a moment - wish me luck for getting that 6th gen Chrono I need instead of the White Stripe there ! 😉


  10. Ah, the holiday x holiday lineages. Back when I started in 2012, two of my three favourite DC dragons were holidays. I didn't have any CBs of them, but thanks to the great  community I got a lineage with them going nonetheless. :)

    Heartseeker x Shadow Walker 5th gen They are still among my absolute favourites.

     

    Shadow x Ribbon Dancer 5th gen

    Shadow x Rosebud 5th gen, with a lovely Nakase spriter's alt pair in 1st generation

    Winter Magi x Shadow 5th gen

     

    Shadow x Rosy Solstice 4th gen

    Shadow x Blue Solstice 4th gen

    Solstices are among my favourites, too, and they look great with Shadows, so I did both variants. I'd love Solstice bloodswaps (4th gen) for both come Christmas !

     

    Aegis x Shadow 3rd gen pair, I'll get to 4th gen this Christmas

    Another favourite of mine, so I hope I'll get a Shadow swap next Halloween, and get to 5th gen Christmas 2019.

    Aegis x Heartstealer 4th gen Aegis-swap this Christmas, anyone ?!

    Aegis x Mistletoe 2nd gen pair I couldn't get an Aegis from Mistletoe in 2016, bred/found only Mistletoes, so this is one year behind. :( But it's so beautiful, I'll keep trying ! Looking forward to the 3rd gen this year ! My only real project with two breeds from the same holiday - I'm glad there are no other combinations like that I fell in love with (so far) !

     

    Heartseeker x Rosy Solstice 5th gen

    Heartseeker x Blue Solstice 5th gen

    Aren't they marvellous together ?!

     

    Heartseeker x Rosebud 4th gen A bloodswap would help here, as well.

    Heartseeker x Ribbon Dancer 3rd gen Have to remember to try for a Ribbon swap.

     

    I'm really dedicated to getting this one started:

    Heartseeker x Garland 2nd gen

    Only got my CB Heartseekers this year, so I couldn't get another 2nd gen, but I'll breed him a mate during Christmas, and maybe others are doing this as well, so we can swap 3rd gens or something.

     

    Winter Magi x Rosebud 4th gen I found the 3rd gen Winter Magi and got a mate for him.

    Winter Magi x Ribbon Dancer 4th gen Found this one, and have had an unrelated 3rd gen for years. Maybe I can swap for a 3rd gen mate and make a 4th gen for this one. Long term again.

     

    Radiant Angel x Rosy Solstice 5th gen

    Radiant Angel x Blue Solstice 4th gen I can't seem to find a Radiant Angel swap for her to get a partner. :(

    Radiant Angel x Mistletoe 4th gen Hopefully here it will be easier to swap for a Mistletoe during Christmas.

    Radiant Angel x Ribbon Dancer 4th For this one, I decided to swap for a Ribbon dancer and re-breed them to get a RA next Valentine's, so the spriter's alt stays in the upper half.

     

    During my 2nd DC Christmas I caught a Snow Angel from Shadow x white-winged Snow Angel and kept it because I thought they look great together - and because I didn't know that the SAs are scroll-coded. So it ended up with solid-gold wings. *sigh* I never bothered to ask around for a matching Shadow, but this year I got two, one from a friend, and one from the AP. Now that I have my own CBs of them I could breed another gold-wing SA and get to 4th gen. Not a big fan of the solid-gold wings, though... I'll have to think about it. Maybe I can find someone with tricoloured SAs, give them the 3rd gens and ask for a 4th with one SA wing type per generation. That would be Christmas 2019 for a SA, and Halloween 2020 for a Shadow. The joy of holiday x holiday...

     

    That's it, so far.

    For many of my 4th or 5th gens I can breed one or more lower gens as well, so if you need anything just let me know !

     

     

     

     

     


  11. That was an awesome adventure !

    Spooky and fun in equal parts. Allright, maybe more fun than spooky, but still a great story. 😃

    Some more praise that might be a spoiler for those that haven't finished yet:

    Spoiler

    I really liked the idea of the relationship between the White and the Marrow. Two sides of the same coin indeed.

    And it was lovely how you incorporated meeting different Halloween dragons. The embarrassed Shadow Walker, all those cute, scary little Lurker eyes, and...

    Best turn (and pun) ever - the RUNNING WATER ! Just brilliant ! I'm still laughing.

    All the texts were written quite eloquently, with a nice sense of humour.

    "Honestly, how many more potatoes... Oh, just take the whole sack !", "For reasons that will not be explained here you can only carry one pumpkin.", "Run for your life some more"

    And so on, and so forth. Thank you !

     

    But now we all want a Part II to answer our questions:

    - What about the witch ?

    - Will the poor trader get paid enough for his bat guano ? (Yay, fireball component ! Hello D&D !)

    - And who the hell is Steve the Bear ? Will he ever bother transforming back ?

    - And we must not forget to let the poor fireflies out of that jar again !!!

    I managed to collect 23 things, but I guess I took a wrong turn right after re-entering the woods.


  12. Tried to think about it, without much success. But what I found I edited in while you posted, it seems. ;)

    That's not really a suggestion, though, because I can't come up with one. Others might have more ideas.

     

    I'm sure the old Greeks have a word just for the state we are looking for, maybe someone can find it. :lol:


  13. But what would that fourth Avatar represent, exactly ? Because, as far as I understand it, the "Avatar of Balance", the embodiment of the concept that weights the three others against each other, is the Guardian of Nature himself. It represents the whole nature/cosmos itself, which is the result of a balance between creation, destruction and (in between) change.

    (As the One ring was master of the other three kinds - or would have been if the elves hadn't "tricked the trickster", so to speak. ;))

     

    I don't want to shoot the idea down, I'm neutral about introducing a fourth guardian, but I think "Balance" just isn't the way to go with it.

     

    It would be more like either "indifference" or "acceptance", depending if you define neutrality as just not caring either way, or as accepting them all as equally important. But making an avatar from that seems complicated, because elemental affinity usually isn't a conscious decision of any dragon breed, just their nature. Which would leave "indifference". And the embodiment of that, not meant in the way of "don't care" but in the way of "that's just the way it is", seems really hard to find.


  14. Ohhh, these hatchies all look very promising !

    It's great to see that the Gusties finally arrived ! One of the most beautiful eggs in the cave.

    Those pygmies look so adorable, if the adults live up to it I'll probably have a new pygmy favourite.

     

    So, names.

    The Gusties are between Aeo- and Alb-. Something with "Aero" comes to mind, with so much wind around them.

    And the pygmies are even more specific. Between Pink and Plated, they either start with Pi- or Pla- (Pj- or Pk- are improbable, at least). Would have tried pidgeon, but that would be before Pink, not after. No idea at the moment.


  15. I sent out a few Xeno x Holiday checkers.

    Looks like I don't have many Xeno lineages... (And I realized I still need bloodswaps for two of them, so those will be put up in trades.)

    If I have the time I'll do some PB 2nd gens later. Yay for Wyrm Wednesdays !

    The game has a lot of mages but could use a few more fighters and thieves.

     

    How about: Azure Glacewings, BLACKs (they even have "warrior" in their description), Brutes, Hellfire, Hooktalon, Red, Seragamma, Stone, Tatterdrake, Trios... And I'm sure that's not all in the tough/warrior department.

    For stealthy/clever guys look at: Vine, Gilded Bloodscale, Olives, Mimic Pygmys, Lurkers...

    And there are the Nexus, which are about as Mary Sue as the Desipis, so they should count as "high and mighty brutes" as well.

    So, we may not have that many blunt rough'n'toughs, but we have a lot more fighters and even "thieves" than you seem to realize. ;)

     

    I can't wait to see the new hatchies growing up ! This grey and marble release is very interesting. The little frosty guys are really cute, and their colours look very promising !! I had to laugh at the poor little intimidating ones when they gendered, because I look at their faces and see a big, hooky nose, something like "Gnihihihi, I am the Wicked Witch of the West !!" :lol: I won't tell them, though, and I'm sure they'll grow up to be very intimidating indeed.
