    A Twofer (both start with z8---): Claim my hatchlings! They should both gender female (I gendered them the way I wanted them and just realized they were Zs). LOL! Both caveborn. One black tea and one yellow crown. Also, purple you are most welcome for the 4-pack (sorry so late in replying. I don't check this thread very often since I don't collect, only give. )) --Snagged by Calenmir
  11. FINALLY...FINALLY my last 2nd gen pair for my bleeding moon line FINALLY graced me with an egg! So, I can finally continue this darn line once it grows up! lolol Also going to start on my Curator Line as well.
  12. Sure can! As the first page says though, you'll have to start your book count from now instead of when the challenge started. There might be a sign-up form you need to fill out (I can't remember, it's on the first or second post). Have fun and enjoy reading!

  16. It is very late at night (almost 3am!) so I will elaborate later BUT I wanted to claim a 50th ann quote as well. I'd like to claim the dialog between 11 and the curator of the museum at the end of the episode. I had so much squee that when we watched the re-air at 7:00, I still squeed and then forced my hubby to stop watching what he was watching at the end of the 3rd re-air just to see it a third time and continue the squee! I will get the quote written out and breeds picked tomorrow when I've had some sleepies. Edit: I'd like to do a 5th gen male fleshcrowne -- female grave/male grave -- female yellow crown first gen line and then do a male flesh/female yellow crown from that. Here is my quote. As you can see, I've already started the line process. LOL! I never forget a face I know you don't And in the years to come you might find yourself revisiting a few but just the old favorites eh You were curious about this painting I think I acquired it in remarkable circumstances What do you make of the title Well which title there's two No More or Gallifrey Falls No you see that's where everybody's wrong It's all one title Gallifrey Falls No More Now what would you think that means That Gallifrey didn't fall It worked It's still out there I'm only a humble curator I'm sure I wouldn't know Then where is it Where is it indeed Lost --Shhh --Perhaps Things do get lost you know Now you must excuse me Oh you have a lot to do Is that what I'm supposed to do now Go looking for Gallifrey That's entirely up to you Your choice I can only tell you what I would do if I were you If I were you -Perhaps I was you of course Or perhaps you are me Or perhaps it doesn't matter either way Who knows WHO knows Also, my Tooth and Claw lineage needs to be updated in spreadsheet to be 5th gen starting with the line --Ian Dury and The Blockheads-- and ending with the line --1879. Same difference.--

    Two Z babies up for grabs. One is a cb dusk and the other is a lumina shimmerfail (from Jewel). Claim my eggs/hatchlings!
  18. I did look for them on Amazon but there were copies of the book that didn't count and copies that did so I left it up to you guys.
  19. I missed out on the zombification as my Internet decided to go poof around 11:30 yesterday. *cries* On a good note, these eggs/hatchies are awesome!
  20. My fortune for the day: Eat well, sleep well, and laugh often. You're starting to look a little worse for wear.
  21. As a Wiccan, I find the dragon riding the broom with the witch's hat incredibly adorable! I'm still waiting for the cat in the hat. I also LURVE the rattie! What's the deal with the "buy something from the store" link that just shows you your trick or treat bag?
  22. Awesome Doctor Who reference. I just got "I believe in Sherlock Holmes" as my fortune. LOL!
  23. Book Number: 4 Number Of Pages: Not sure as I read it through the kindle phone app. Book Title: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Author: Lewis Carroll Summary: A girl named Alice falls down a rabbit hole and has a really weird journey through an upside down, fantastical world of talking animals and animated playing cards. Rating: Eh, about a 3 Review: The second book I've had to read in my sci-fi/fantasy mooc class (along with its twin Through the Looking Glass that I am in the middle of now) for the second week of class. I'm not sure what the hooplah is about this book. I found it rather mediocre. A nice weekend read though, I suppose. Book Number: 5 Number Of Pages: Not sure as I read it through the kindle phone app. Book Title: Through the Looking Glass Author: Lewis Carroll Summary: Sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Alice steps through the mirror in her sitting room and goes on another weird adventure. Rating: A 3 as well. Review: Feel about the same with this book as I did with Alice. It's mediocre and I'm not sure what the big deal is with Carroll's writing.
  24. Book Number: 3 Number Of Pages: ~ 193 (according to my e-reader) Book Title: Grimm's Household Stories Author: The Grimm Brothers - translated by Lucy Crane Summary: A collection of around 50 or so of Grimm's fairy tales. Read it as part of my sci-fi and fantasy mooc class. Rating: I love folklore so a definite 5 for me. I have a "complete" works on my bookshelf that I will read eventually. Review: It's Grimm's fairy tales...what else can I say?
  25. I'd love to be added to these. As an aside, I need to read this thread more often. Keep missing a lot of good lines. LOL! Update on my own lines. Just sent out the 4th person's Flesh and Stone pm to claim their egg so that list will open again soon. My Tooth and Claw lineage has been at a standstill for weeks because of my last set of 2nd gens "not showing much interest" in each other. :\
