  1. Alas! I didn't have enough time for all the ToT this year. Man, I've just been so busy with work that I missed both Valentine's AND most of Halloween this year as well, not to mention all the releases inbetween.

     

    Ah well, I'll try to do better for Christmas.


  2. If I'd been paying more attention, I would have set up properly to expand my zombie collection. :P Maybe next year.

     

    At least I was able to get all the costumes I wanted, even if I can't use them all! The dress-up was fun.


  3. Finished all my egg hunting, and got all 50 treats! I'm enjoying the dragon dress-up. 'Tis fun!

     

    As for the re-CB release of past dragons, well… :) There's no pleasing everyone, you know? And we don't know the motives. It's something new and different, and maybe that was the point. We don't know whether this is something that will ever be repeated, so we have to remember to use our words wisely. :P 

     

    Personally, I thought it was a nice surprise. I do wish I had known about it in time to take advantage of it, but that's my fault for not being more attentive. I would have loved some CBs of releases I hadn't been privy to in previous years; making pretty lineages is lots of fun.


  4. Ack! If only I had checked in again sooner! :wacko: I must have missed the announcement by a day or two, but it's a bit too late for me to make use of all the shiny goodies now. :( Oh dear.

     

    Ah well! I hope everyone has been having fun with it. :) I really like the idea—I was just late to the party.


  5. Codes!

     

    Special/Biggest Eyecatchers:

    • 00I00 —first symmetrical code. :3
    • 04525 —my first all numbers code! smile.gif
    • Rumen — REAL WORD. wub.gif He's my pride and joy. biggrin.gif
    • ninja.gifcensorkip.gifblink.gif … I still can't believe I got this. Sure were a lot of inquiries for it as an egg and a hatchling, that's for sure.

    Words (uninterrupted, full):

    Symmetry:

    • A0VOA —Almost symmetrical!
    • mayaM —MAYA, almost symmetrical

  6. As much as I also long for a kitty, think of it this way: now you won't one night wake up to find a very, very, very angry two-headed dragon smashing its way into your home to eat you and take back its cat. xd.png

    Okay, that DOES help me feel better about doing the right thing and giving the dragon their kitty.

     

    I just wish I could have kept one of the ones that was NOT Buffy. ): I love cats, and I actually had to think for a minute or so before I (begrudgingly) handed over the cat.

     

    ;w; Kitties


  7. Unfortunately, coppers have taught us that if it's going to be rare, you better catch them on release day, because otherwise you probably won't get any CBs within a year or more, maybe not ever.

    And since we never know the rarity of a new breed, we always have to assume they'll be rare. Which is what creates most of the release mayhem in the first place. sad.gif

    There's that, and there's also a subconsious paranoia that the moment you start turning your attention to other projects, suddenly that breed you REEEEALLY wanted but were putting off because you had a hard time getting it is suddenly… discontinued!

     

    (Which is definitely not the whole story, but there's nothing like that possibility to make you frantic to make SURE that you have some for lineage projects

     

    gotta catch 'em all)


  8. Very much looking forward to the Silver drop! I was going to stuff myself entirely with Silver Lunars, but then I saw this lovely Thalassa that just had to be mine. biggrin.gif

     

    Unfortunately, I might still be at work when the drop starts, but I hope to catch a few after I come home.


  9. No support.

     

    This is a bad idea, for reasons already stated multiple, multiple times. Yes, a bad idea—and honestly I think it would be too complicated to work. What exactly would define "rare"? And when would something stop being considered "rare"? Beyond a few of the obvious, it's really all pretty subjective. Definitely shouldn't be enforced in such a way.


  10. It just started yesterday and runs three full days. If you check the calendar, you will see the time frame also. Still well over 24 hrs left to go.

    Oh, that's a huge relief! :'D I'm so glad to hear it.

     

    45/62. I love the eggs so far.


  11. Much has changed.

     

    It would, perhaps, be best to start from the beginning, but that beginning is not known.

     

    Some time ago, something… changed. There were mages everywhere, frantically running and writing and tearing their way through with no clear direction. It was some time before things became quiet, but then…

     

    Just this past month, there was a terrible snowstorm. We were caught in the snowstorm, but…

     

    There appears to have been a mishap of sorts that has affected our memory. It may have something to do with our telepathic bond to the mage. She is ill.

     

    [A fancy page break.]

     

    We are currently studying the results of some scrolls that the Magi recently acquired. There is great interest shown in them, and there are more talks about the Squadrons. I look forward to this; hopefully it will be worth a good story. It is difficult to tell at this point.

  12. The value of prizes do go down over time, true. Though I still haven't been able to find many 3gs on the market for anything other than bloodswaps and multiple CB metals. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places.

     

    I understand and agree with Amazon's point—it should be optional. Having multiclutch as a BSA makes it very optional and usable on all dragons, which is useful in its own right. smile.gif

     

     


  13. I wouldn't mind a BSA for multiclutch. Lineages are fun to make, though particularly difficult with Prize dragons. You almost need a CB Prize yourself to have the leverage to get offspring you need.

     

    Iiii'm daydreaming of a Priiiiize dragon~

    Just like the ones the Wiki shows~

    Whose scaaaales glisten~

    And colleeeeeectors listen~

    To heeeaaaar

    If egg was yes or noooo~
