Prowling the Dragon Cave
Greetings and Welcome!
Here you will find all manner of useful information regarding myself.
Who am I? Well I'm LOTS of things, obviously!
So here is my 'Introducing Me."
As for names I am pretty flexible. You may call me JavaTigress, Tigress or just plain old Java. I would discourage 'JT' though, if only to avoid confusion with the Bossman of the site. Really, though, any of them are good by me. As I said... I am pretty easygoing as to such matters.
She/her(s) pronouns are preferred, though they/them/their are acceptable.
My Timezone is US Central Standard Time, or Cave Time minus One Hour.
Please note that I DO work full time, so IF I do not immediately respond to a post, PM or trade offer, it is likely that I am away from DC and just haven't seen it yet. I will attempt to reply to PMs.... though keeping my inbox cleaned out feels like a chore at times. A PM on the forums here is usually the easiest way to contact me.
You MAY note from some of the dates on my dragons that I've been here a while.
As a player of DC since sometime in 2009 (one of my oldest dragons is my lovely 2009 original release Snow Angel), I can remember many things. As that one little badge says, I DID see the cave before what my fellow dragon keepers call 'the Change', if only relatively briefly. I remember when the AP actually DID block the cave (I for one, am SO thankful this changed) and it was the ONLY way to trade eggs/hatchies, there were no biomes and no prizes, many of our ever-so-useful BSAs... such as incubate, fertility and, most especially, teleport, didn't exist, the trophies didn't exist and everyone had the same egg/hatchie limits... five to be exact, vampire dragons had no 'bite lineages' or 'bite progenies', names were permanent, rares couldn't breed with other rares, scrolls didn't have pages ( I dunno if I noticed this one as much because as I was still very MUCH a newbie at the time, I am sure I didn't have all that many dragons as of yet), and dragon codes were four letters long (AND I actually DO still have a few of these). I can recall when zombies came in but ONE kind, when dimorphism was rare, and I remember the retirement... and reinstatement... of Frills and the drama the wings on the Snow Angels caused. I admit it, I was one of those people who did NOT get the color of wings they were hoping for, but my white-wing pretties have grown on me, and I have come to love them, THOUGH I still dream of a way to have the other colors, too. And I remember the drama that resulted, and still boils up from time to time, about prizes… a pity because, I must admit, they are pretty, though and love having a few on my scroll, myself. Yet I loved it all then, as that same little badge says, and I still love it now. Fast forward to now when my scroll has grown to over one thousand dragons strong and 'the Change' has been in force for years; I say I joined 'sometime in 2009' because while I was here before Christmas of that year, exactly WHEN I am unsure... due to a sadly misguided desire at one point to 'clean up' my scroll... I had very 'restrictive' ideas of how many of each dragon I wanted on my scroll back then, and when CBs became more available, I wanted some for myself... I went through at one point and released a bunch of messy commons, which many of my very first dragons were due to the cave blocking mechanism in place then. Alas, due to such foolishness, I very likely no longer own my very first DC dragon. I DO, fortunately, have ONE female Frill dragon that dates to pre-retirement and rerelease! She is a messy, but I couldn't find it in my heart to release her...by the time I did my 'cleanout' the Frills had been retired, and I believed I would be unable to replace her... and today, when CB rerelease Frills call my scroll home and I could easily regard her as replaced and send her to live in the Wilderness, I sort of have a sentimental attachment to her... now she, also, is one of the 'elder statesdragons' of the 'JavaTiger Clan'. I admit, these days I am less fussy. While I do ADORE my CBs, nice lineages and, yes, even sometimes MESSIES, have happy homes on my scroll... I have a respectable assortment of dragons, overall.
In real life I am a major fan of coffee hence the 'Java' part of my name.
I like nothing better than a cup of coffee, especially GOOD coffee, to accompany a book or YouTube video...or chess game. Yes, I am known to also indulge in chess, when I am not otherwise occupied… such as checking on my scroll! Anyone up for a game? And yes, I did also say books. Recall that thread that said 'IF you were a dragon what would you hoard'? For me, books. Definitely books. Usually these take the form of e-books so that I can take my 'hoard' with me when I am 'on-the-go'. My favorite books are usually fantasy fiction... C.S. Lewis (Narnia), JR.R. Tolkien (LOTOR), and Christopher Paolini (Inheritance Series) are some of my favorites; though I am always looking for new reads and am aware of some of the classics, too. You might.... just MIGHT... catch references to literature in some of my dragon names and descriptions. Growing up I was also a fan of Pokemon, Digimon and several other Anime cartoons and, truthfully, I still have a soft spot in my heart for those things.
Be warned that I consider myself to be SOMEWHAT of a nerd.
Star Wars or Star Trek?
BOTH please and thanks.
I don't take sides on that debate and enjoy them both.... plus some Doctor Who.
Other things I am 'into' include music... I enjoy listening to a wide range of styles, though I DO have preferences and various sorts of rock tend to be my preference. Be it said that what I am listening to on any given day may VERY WELL be dictated by my mood at the moment; Darker Moods=Darker Tunes and Lighter Moods=Lighter Tunes... AND I have been known to dance to them when I think no one is watching me. As for making music myself... meh, SOMETIMES. I am just NOT that good. I have been known color and draw as far as 'arting' goes... but again, I haven't REALLY ever thought of myself as that 'good'. IF I make anything it is usually for my own amusement. That isn't to say I don't have MUCHO respect for those that DO have the talent to make pretty things. I DO enjoy writing, sometimes.... though lack the confidence to show off what I wrote, most of the time.
I also admit to being a cat lover... hence the 'Tiger/ess' part of my moniker.
So far as the strictly DC stuff goes, onsite I am often to be found stalking both the AP and biomes. The nice thing about having the option of where to look next is that you just never KNOW what your hunting might turn up. I am also known to stalk the trade and departure threads in search of pretty shinies in need of a new home.
I enjoy having both CBs and pretty lineages on my scroll.
In addition to shinies , which I adore as a glance at my scroll will tell you (though I REGRETTABLY stink horribly at actually CATCHING CBs of these lovelies, neither my internets nor my reflexes are quick enough… I’d be the person that’d pause for a minute to gawk at a gold in it’s natural habitat thereby, of course, missing my chance… and so I am relegated to adopting lineaged Shinies and traded for the CBs I do own. and shimmerscales (see the section below devoted JUST to these), I currently have several lineages I am involved in, as well as a few projects of my own. I DO fervently plan on naming every dragon on my scroll, and I DO follow the 'if it has a face it should have a name' ideal as much as possible. SHOULD have a name, you see, UNFORTUNATELY for me , I am sometimes not as quick as I'd like in coming up with names for all of my lovelies. I want them to be GOOD names and so it is sometimes an ongoing project. Some of my favorite dragons even have, or in time will have descriptions, as I mentioned, so if you happen to own progeny from my babies do keep an eye out. Holiday Dragons are the most likely targets for my describing muse, but Shinies and shimmers as well as vampires (yes, I have some of these on my scroll, too) are not exempt from such attention either. Feel free to peruse and learn a little more about the characters that call the JavaTiger Clan their home. This is something of an exception to the usual 'I do not show off my work' rule.
Well, that is a bit about the JavaTigress...myself.
So Now you know who and what you are dealing with.
Coffee connoisseur, Amateur Writer and Librarian, 'Dragon Keeper' and would-be chessmaster.
This section contains stuff that I am currently looking for.
It will be updated as regularly as necessary to stay current, as there are many items that will be added and removed as I either catch or trade for what I want for my goals. THAT said though there are some things are nearly ALWAYS guaranteed to catch my attention.
*SHIMMERSCALES- See the Section below ;) Always willing to adopt these.
*SHINIES- I DO have a weakness for Gold and Silver Metals ( CB Or Not)
*VAMPIRES- I frequently adopt these
*INCUBATORS-Seriously I'm ALWAYS running out of these...

*CB Gemshard eggs or RED Hatchies (For a Lineage Project!)
*CB Xenowyrm eggs or hatchies (For a Lineage Project)
*CB 'Liver of Sulfer' Copper eggs or hatchies (For a Lineage Project!
*Interesting Offers- TRY me? I decline offers I don't like.

*CB Aeon Wyverns
*CB Blue Firegem -I have no luck catching these...
*CB MALE Golden Lunar Herald ( OR Influencible Egg)
*2G PB Alt Blacks
*2G PB Alt Vines
*2G PB Alt Undines
*Mates for Holidays and Shinies... UNSURE what I May need...
MY FAVORITE DRAGONS
My Gold and Silver Dragons
I have an assortment of these shinies; as I said, I like to collect them.
While MOST are bred.... I have a male and female CB of both golds and silvers.
While my silvers don't really HAVE a set naming scheme, you MAY notice that my golds, on the other hand, are named for lost cities AND that my CB male gold is named for the most FAMOUS and sought after of all lost cities.... Eldorado! I have ALL my gold and silver dragons highlighted as a group, and if you look there, you will find the CBs at the top. I don't keep lists for Eldorado Manoaas or Cibola Quivera (my CB golds, male and female respectively) nor for Pessado Deocho or Riodella Platina (my CB silvers, male and female respectively)... IF I receive requests, they will be noted under IOUs. If you want a baby from them you can ask... though I may or not be able to oblige. My shinies are NOTORIOUSLY stubborn about giving me shiny babies, so if I promise you an offspring of theirs, expect a wait.
My Shimmerscale Dragons
I love, repeat LOVE to collect Shimmer lines. I have a number of pretty ones I can breed for trades OR, in some cases upon request. Feel free to ask via PM if interested in being added to a waiting list. Those 'waiting' will be added to the list blow next to the dragon whose progeny they are waiting for. I am usually interested in swaps for lines I don't already own... or even especially pretty lines from CBs I DO already own. I also like giving descriptions to my shimmers, so many of my lovelies are described by me... and don't be surprised if MORE are in the future. For more info on these, please see the link to SHIMMERS in my sig; lines from metallic mates are duly noted HERE because they are SLOW.
My Nigh Impossible Wish? A CB Shimmer of my own one day!

Care to meet my lovelies? Head over to my scroll, I have them highlighted!
I also have some 'messies' that I will happily breed for those that ask nicely.
I DO have a handful of these... my collection of these isn't as good as my collection of shimmers. That said, IF you want to see them, I will happily link you to their group. I don't HATE these guys.... I just have only so many slots for highlighting my dragons, and I happen to prefer shimmers (Sorry Tins). Foremost among these is my 2nd Gen from Tinsel Ornixen 1.
My Holiday Dragons
Thanks to the re releases, I have a wide assortment of holiday dragons I can breed. This includes Vals, Hallows and Christmases. The only ones I am missing yet are CB pumpkins, a male CB Cavern Lurker, Yulebucks... and a second CB Holly. Again, I haven't ever had a need to keep a list for these so, if you would like something from them, feel free to ask about it. IF you would like to inspect my lovely CBs, I have highlighted them as a group! Til then, here is to next year... and to hoping for another chance at the ones I missed.
My Vampire Dragons
I have an odd habit of collecting vampire dragons. I am nearly always willing to give a vampire egg a happy home on my scroll if I find it repulsed to the AP. Please do NOTE that, as my sig states, because my scroll is HOME to a band of vampires which I do sometimes allow to bite eggs, there MAY, sometimes, be dead eggies on my scroll. As a matter of fact... IF there are dead eggs on my scroll, one of those sharp fanged creatures of the night is almost surely to blame for it. This in NO way means that I will allow the creatures to so much as think of touching something that was gifted or traded to me... or that such eggs left in my care will be poorly raised. I also DON'T usually use rares as vampie fodder, as I figure even messies of those might be missed and wanted. If you are interested in adopting a vampire... PM me, I can bite an eggie for you on request.
AUTOS and MY POLICIES THEREON
I know some people feel pretty strongly on this one...I am not one of those people.
For me it is really pretty simple. NOT everything of mine that finds its way onto the AP was auto'd. For stuff that WAS, for autoing due to multiclutches OR, indeed, due to being locked when I breed; I deem that anything I auto'ed is fair game for the finders. I do NOT ask for these back. In my opinion it is my OWN bad luck. IF, for example, I was careless enough to forget to check whether I was locked or not before I bred, then that is MY fault and no one else's, and my bad luck may mean GOOD luck for someone else. Incidentally, this ALSO goes for vampire eggs that get repulsed...not my FAULT exactly, but still my bad luck. If you find, enjoy. For auto'ed stuff that I find, PM me and we can talk if you really want it back... DO be polite about it, however, or straight back to the AP it will go. As I said; it is simple, VERY simple indeed.
TRADES and IOUS and My POLICIES THEREON
This is a complex issue and as such I will address it in two parts.
Part one for outright trades and Part two for IOUs.
For items I have that I am interested in trading I may place an offer on an item of yours... or I may post it in a trade of my own. Please note that on trades I have posted, I do use the decline button, so that IF I have NOT declined an offer of yours it likely means that I either have not seen it yet OR am considering and haven't made up my mind yet. If I DO decline an offer of yours.... self explanatory what it means, and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING Personal. IF I trade you an egg and it misgenders or refuses its intended mate or some such thing as that.... feel free to mention it to me. For common breed dragons, I traded to you I will very LIKELY be willing to breed a replacement, if it was an offspring of mine (AP finds are, obviously another matter, and I do NOT feel obligated to replace). For rarer dragons... we can still talk and maybe work something out, though a replacement may take longer.
As for IOUS, do note that I am IOU friendly, within reason, and am usually willing to consider such arrangements. For accepting IOUS, that is done on a case by case basis, but I'm usually willing to give people a chance unless they have proven in the past they don't deserve it. Still, I don’t absolutely blacklist someone lightly. I may decide to go by a ‘three strikes and you are out' policy for my IOUS (AND yes, I would likely warn you if you earned a 'strike'), though fortunately I haven’t run into too much trouble with this. AND I DO understand that sometimes real life has a way of interfering with dragons. I am ALSO understanding of the fact that the dragons, particularly those of the 'shiny and rare' variety do not always choose to cooperate when we would like an egg from them. So on both those counts I am willing to be patient. For repaying IOUs I do try to keep my word... even IF it might take a while. IF I owe you something and seem to have forgotten to repay, or am taking a while, shoot me a PM! It is possible the dragons are being uncooperative, though I will try to inform you if I find I am having trouble. For attempted repayments that have gone unclaimed, I will PM you regarding it after twenty-four hours. IF no response after another two days have elapsed, I shall judge that you are no longer active and as such I have done my best to uphold my end, and will cross you off my list.The egg I bred, then, remains my property to dispose of as I see fit .... whether via APing or trading to another willing 'buyer'. IF you become active once again.... again.... shoot me a PM and we can likely work something out regarding my debt to you. I am likely to willing to work with you on it.

Want to take a look at what I have got?
Click on the tiger-long beastie in my sig. She'll take you straight to my scroll.
Remember, if you are requesting an egg, to include both the name of the dragon you would like an offspring from, as well as the breed of the mate you would like. I am pretty flexible on this point, THOUGH I do sometimes have favorite pairings for some of my dragons. I find the idea of 'life-mates' for my dragons to be a SWEET idea, but rather limiting as to making lineages.
Some of my more special things are highlighted in groups, so check those out!
Remember... it can't hurt to ask! I don't bite! Though my vampires just might XD
