  1. That moment when someone apparently decides to drop my scroll into as many hatcheries as they can just when I'm waiting for someone to take a 2G gold shimmerscale for an IOU we agreed on a week ago. Haha, viewbomber. Joke's on you. Shimmers are harder to kill that way (and the other guy caught it pretty quickly and the egg is now fogged) and everything else was ready to hatch.
  2. How to tell that I am bored: I have nothing but striped eggs on my scroll. 😕 My dragon has chosen his faction! Forum Username: Afeare Dragon Name: Febagh of Candor (CB) Lineage: https://dragcave.net/lineage/F9BaG I could announce the 3G Amity baby I precog'ed and have already named in my Excel doc, but I think I'll save it for the mass-upload of dragons I'll be posting in a couple days.
  3. My dragons have chosen their factions! Forum Username: Afeare Dragon Name: Tafetta of Candor (2G) Lineage: https://dragcave.net/lineage/TFTAb Dragon Name: Vascynel of Abnegation (2G) Lineage: https://dragcave.net/lineage/VSCr3 Dragon Name: Zaze'egh of Abnegation (2G) Lineage: https://dragcave.net/lineage/Zz3H6 Dragon Name: Evilette of Erudite (2G) Lineage: https://dragcave.net/lineage/EQQCK I have one more baby that will be joining as soon as it genders, a CB I picked up by chance from the AP. Hoping for a male but I don't remember if I Influenced it or not. 😕 Either way, that one will be announced... sometime in the next few days. (Also... don't ask me how I come up with my names. Thank gods the only naming requirement for this project is the tacked on 'of Faction'/'the Divergent'. Because some days, I don't know either. I know the story behind little Evilette there, but...)
  4. Egg has been sent. Didn't really need another 2G Dauntless at this particular juncture since my dragons usually mate for life and this would have been 2G Dauntless #3, so might as well share.
  5. I may have lazed aboot for a while on naming and announcing these guys... Also, I have two eggs tacked in here (the Amity duo) that have been Precog'ed and named in my Excel doc. They will be given their herein-listed names as soon as they hatch and the naming feature becomes available. I also have three more eggs that will be added after they hatch and gender. (Or after they've been precog'ed (if that happens), since I ran out of Aeons after discovering that the Abnegation egg of the unnamed trio (Abnegation, Dauntless, and Erudite) would have been female without any Influence. 😕 Don't need any more of those, thanks. Still sitting on two that need mates.) (Edit: And then I got a 2G Candor and Abnegation pair in a trade. They've both been Influenced and will be announced with the rest of the group later this week.) @Alisyn I would like to note that Iv'vaxa of Dauntless is 2G and you currently have her listed as 3G.

  9. It's not pretty, but it's not inbred, and this is the first baby I've had 'come back to me.' I dumped a whole lot of babies into the AP during Valentines because I got myself egglocked rather quickly and then just, well, couldn't take any bred eggs. This little darling is descended from As'cre Hato and his mate Xef'cys, and I had a legitimate freakout when I realized it. So thanks to anyone and everyone who dumped it to the AP (and kept re-dumping it, because I know it poofed away for a minute). https://dragcave.net/lineage/apdyk
  10. Yay, drakes and pygmies! <3
  11. I really like the flexible cool down suggestion. It would be a massive help for the people trying to do weekly breedings. That time creep is definitely a pain in the butt--especially when I do most of my breeding at 4a-6a during the weekdays and then midday on the weekends. :/ If I miss breeding a pair before I go to work on Monday because it won't let me breed them yet, I usually don't come back to it until Tuesday, and then I've lost almost an entire day.
  12. Ha, I knew it! I saw that and immediately brought it to my skype group. But a certain doubter was being a doubter, so I dragged it here. (Also, love your avatar! ) Alas, Tales of the Abyss is a rather obscure fandom. It's taken me a long time to find as many people as I have that do know about it. (And half of them don't count because I introduced them to it.) Abyssal Starlight was also one of the last three or four flowers I got, or I'd have been in the thread asking about it much sooner. Aside from the obvious Frozen reference, I don't think I noticed much of anything else... (Unless I was right to bust up laughing over the Jade Peony?) ...Wait a second... ...It's a sopheria... -thumps her head against the wall- And for all that I have an OC named Selenia whom another OC keeps mistakenly calling 'Sopheria', that took me a depressingly long time to figure out. In a weak defense... I've only played Graces once, and Abyss... um... Well, I don't think I'm quite into the double-digits. ...Although the Corpse Lily looks a lot like a rafflesia... -goes back to head-banging-
  13. Mine just totally crashed. RIP screen, included. Edit: And now it's unavailable for maintenance.
  14. Okay, throwing this one at the people who came up with all the flowers... Do I detect a Tales of the Abyss reference over here? Because if that's not an intentional reference to selenias, it's a very, very, VERY interesting coincidence.
  15. ...And then my coworkers had to ask me if I was going to need help. One does not simply die laughing in silence, I'm afraid.
  16. And the friendly neighborhood pyromaniac is loose~ (Lutari_Takira)
  17. Sent one myself~ Scroll is Lutari_Takira.
  18. Aaaaaahhhhhh, I'm so torn! (Have been for a couple days, actually.) I'm not the greatest fan of Gemshards, but this looks too enticing to simply walk away from. At the same time, picking a Clan would be easier on my conscience if Sky (the one I've already eliminated due to the fact that I've got enough blue-colored lineages going and don't need more) wasn't lagging behind by a member. ...I'll have to make up my mind some other time. I have coding work I'm supposed to be doing and some cave-stalking to do as I try to track down the CB Pyro I need for this checker I somewhat foolishly decided to continue. (I hate checkers as a given, why I am fighting with this Pyro/Neotropical insanity?)
  19. Yeah, holidays can be tricky, but the Snows and Garlands have similar color schemes and both compliment the Gaias, so it just made sense to me~ Since I've only got one CB Snow myself, the furthest I'll be able to take it before Christmas rolls around again (phrased such hoping they do the Holiday biome again) will be 4 generations. At the 5G point I'd have to hand the offspring off to other people for it to be continued.
  20. Planning on turning this lovely darling into a Gaia/Snow/Garland spiral. (Mostly because I personally detest checkers and have exactly one checker lineage I'm working on, as opposed to my half a dozen spirals.) Here's hoping the Influence worked, or I'm going to be banging my head in frustration again.
  21. Roasty toasty viewbombers, roasty toasty viewbombers~ Okay, no, in all seriousness though, I don't like the cold, so 'fire' is my automatic response to "Ice or Fire?"
  22. Thankfully, I seem to have found my way away from the viewbombers. The last of my babies from the two nests that got caught by them have grown up, and I managed to find another caveborn Zyumorph, though I'm still upset I lost (FILMS). (The new one's blue instead of white, too...)
  23. I used an EQ on my second 'nest' during the viewbombing madness. I had seven sick eggs and killed... five of them. I did manage to hatch Iuncy, though she remained sick for another near 20 or so hours. And this is also one of two dragons that survived the first 'nest' (the other had hatched pretty quickly as it was low on time), so naming her Iuncy the Survivor was a rather fitting move. One of the other eggs was unaffected, but died less than half an hour later--while fogged, mind you--from sickness. So many dead dragons...
  24. I lost 11 eggs before I started fogging ALL of them. Only using AoND now, all eggies/hatchies are in and no one's fogged, but I'm keeping an eye on them anyway. Iuncy (code iunCy, after 48 hours worrying over this poor baby, it sounded like a good enough name) the Survivor has gendered (female! :D) and been named. Was sick for most of her life, finally shook it off early afternoon yesterday. (2:30 cave time) The rest of my eggies are all doing well enough. Hopefully the insanity is over. (Also, @SheridanCharon, love the gif in your siggy.)
  25. Hopefully by now most of DC is aware of the horrible plague that has struck us in this time which should be filled, not with illness-stricken hatchlings and the empty, cold shells of dead eggs, but with the cheer, joy, and hope that follows the Christmas season. Though all efforts are being made to combat this terrible plague, we cannot forget the hundreds--nay, thousands of innocent eggs and hatchlings that have been lost to this tragic act of cruelty. In an effort to release my frustration and sorrow, I began to do what I, as an author, do best: I wrote. In between checking on my ill hatchling, who has weathered so much abuse already (iunCy finally shook off the illness around 1:30pm today), and darting amongst the various threads reporting any news on this Viewbomb Plague, I found myself writing eulogies for many of my lost eggs. Though written in 3rd person, likely as a subconscious attempt to distance myself from these shockingly rapid deaths (and, admittedly in a few cases, murders), these short eulogies are no less steeped in my pain at losing so many precious eggs. If you wish to join me in mourning the loss of so many potential lives, feel free to post your own eulogies. While a painful endeavor, in the end, it proved to be a therapeutic exercise for me, and perhaps it can be the same for others who are angered or saddened by their losses. These words will never replace the lost innocents... But within them, our beloved eggs live on. I offer my condolences to everyone who, like me, has suffered under this plague, and can only hope that it will pass before the season's end. *~.~*~.~* Farewell, my darlings... *~.~*~.~* On December 15th, 2017, Casem and Iore of Afeare's Lunar Magi line finally laid a Moonstone egg (which has since hatched and gendered male), and she forgot to place him with his fellows on her favorite click site--Eggs Around the World. When she did remember to place him in the hatchery, he was one of seven eggs. Checking in every hour or so, Afeare fearfully waited for him to become sick, worried that a mass jump in views would hurt him. Having never had an egg or hatchling fall ill before, she was woefully unprepared for what awaited her eggs. In the end, it was the rest of the Moonstone's 'nest' that became sick, as Eggs Around the World was brutally attacked, every egg and hatchling on the site view-bombed. Hundreds of unsuspecting caretakers watched on in horror as their precious eggs and hatchlings became sick and died right before their eyes, despite all efforts to hide and ward the afflicted eggs. Unaware initially that it was, in fact, Eggs Around the World causing the illness, Afeare gathered another five eggs--only Azure Glacewing iunCy had survived of the Moonstone's original 'nestmates'--and made the same mistake, though catching it faster this time and fogging them... Alas, in her fear, she made a hasty decision to have Vel'asyris use Earthquake late on December 19th as the active wards quickly ran out their remaining time. Only iunCy and dAINn survived the Earthquake. iunCy was forced from xir shell early, still afflicted with the horrible illness, and dAINn passed away a short while later when its Ward wore off. Though Afeare continues to collect eggs (and has maxed herself out, as she is wont to do) careful to keep them fogged and avoiding Eggs Around the World until the issues are resolved, her heart remains heavy as she mourns the losses of her dragons. She bids a weary farewell to the following impulse-stolen eggs, for whom she had no plans, nor true desire to collect: XkM4X - A Caveborn Almerald Dragon stolen December 18; killed by sickness the same day a4GKK - A Caveborn Azure Glacewing Dragon stolen December 19; killed by Earthquake the same day HgtS2 - A Caveborn Black Dragon stolen December 18; killed by sickness the same day kn7Eg - A Caveborn Kingcrowne Dragon stolen December 18; killed by sickness the same day dAINn - A Caveborn Kyanite Pygmy stolen December 19; killed by sickness the same day Over a number of other killed eggs, she silently rages at the viewbombing and her own foolish actions, and prays for the swift resolution of the epidemic. For these eggs, she offers reflections… x82bm - Caveborn Spinel Wyvern -Stolen December 18 -Died of sickness December 18 …..Perhaps one of the least impressive eggs lost in the epidemic but included among those Afeare rages over is this Spinel Wyvern egg. As a woman with a very special place in her heart for wyverns of all kinds, this Spinel egg, which was the first of its kind to grace her scroll, was among those she eagerly awaited the hatching of. She feels its loss as keenly as the losses of another two wyverns that passed away in this time that should have been filled with joyous celebration. PmSod - Caveborn Golden Wyvern -Stolen December 19 -Killed by Earthquake December 19 sfgJn - Caveborn Nebula Dragon -Stolen December 19 -Killed by Earthquake December 19 …..While no longer driven by desperation to find Golden Wyverns or Nebula Dragons (especially as the latter can nearly fill an entire 50-dragon page by themselves), Afeare still loves these two species, and is always ecstatic to find one caveborn. Seeing them ill along with the rest of their 'nest' drove her to act rashly, and though she regrets that they died by her poorly-thought-out actions, a part of her is determined to see their deaths as a mercy, as the Earthquake put a rapid end to their suffering. Their deaths will continue to weigh heavily on her mind, however, as she mourns her decision to have Vel'asyris unleash the Earthquake. OZWAG - Caveborn Green Fire Gem Dragon -Stolen December 19 -Killed by Earthquake December 19 …..Another victim of the Viewbomb Plague that was killed by Afeare's rash actions, this interestingly-coded Fire Gem is far from the most precious egg she's lost, in her eyes. However, lack of love for Fire Gems or not, Afeare is still extremely upset over its death, an anger directed primarily at herself. An egg she had planned to offer for trade before it was afflicted by the plague, part of her grief is for the future owner it never had. urTQk - Caveborn Magi Dragon -Stolen December 19 -Killed by Earthquake December 19 …..By far one of the plainest eggs Afeare has lost to the Plague is this Magi, whose code, perhaps in a dark twist of irony, could be 'read' (with a little creativity) as 'Earthquake'. This little Magi, within minutes of being taken in by Afeare, was influenced to be female by Ysa'lure. She was to become the next matron of the Lunar Magi lineage. Her would-have-been mate, the Moonstone Dragon whom Afeare has named X'masurv Lu'ma, will remain an unmated dragon, a grim reminder of the horrible plague (and her own foolish decision) that ended the lives of so many eggs prematurely. FILMS - Caveborn White Zyumorph -Stolen December 18 -Died of sickness December 18 …..Having only recently returned to the Cave, learned of the Zyumorphs and Sinomorphs, and just a few days previous raised a second-generation Red Zyumorph to adulthood, Afeare was absolutely delighted to find this White Zyumorph entirely by accident while on a walk in the woods--and even more delighted by its code! Thus it was a frantic Afeare who immediately hid and warded this egg upon the discovery that it was ill. Alas, her efforts were in vain, for as soon as the ward wore off, this beautiful White Zyumorph passed on, along with most of the rest of its 'nest.' The loss of FILMS has, by far, hit Afeare the hardest of all of her losses, and she hopes that someday, this little one will not weigh so heavily on her mind.
