  1. Also joining the auto-abandon crowd. Just had a gold x garland go straight to the AP, and I'm normally good about checking before doing a breeding like that. Oh well. Changed the parents' names to see if I can get it back, but if not, at least I have the rest of the year to breed another.


    EDIT: Forgot to mention the other stupid thing I did. I bought a Siyat from the market when I realized I didn't have a male of a specific color... and influenced it female. Didn't even realize until today, when I went to breed it with its intended mate. The color mechanic of Siyats will make raising another one even more annoying.

     2 thanks anon


    That's mine, glad it found a good home!


    2g Garland x Gaia, thank you breeder!

    4g Solstice x Bluebanded- wow, this is actually one of my favorites, I never thought they'd look so good together. Thank you @bloodonmyfangs!

    3g Solstice x Winter, also from bloodonmyfangs! I think I grabbed a few of these checkers for my last batch of holidays once I realized the holiday wall would probably be gone by the time I woke up in the morning.

    4g Solstice x Silver, also bloodonmyfangs.

    2g Aegis x Deep Sea, thank you 42!

    3g Aegis x Silver, thank you AngelsPunishment (forum name is slipping my mind). Love the naming scheme of this. I'll be enraging once I get my next failed vampire bite.

    2g Enraged Aegis x Lacula, thank you breeder! This is a surprisingly lovely pairing.

    2g Mageia x Enraged Aegis, thank you @Jeep_the_dragon! Definitely going to look for a mate for this.

    2g Yulebuck x Frilled, thank you @DorkJulian!

    2g Gold x Garland, thank you breeder! I might breed a mate for this if my gold decides to cooperate.

    3g Snow x Frostbite, thank you @Ninjakittee!

    2g Garland x Green Siyat, another surprisingly lovely pairing! Thank you breeder.

    Another 2g Garland x Gaia, looks like I'll have to do this checker. Thank you @paddingpaw!

    2g Enraged Aegis x Dark Lumina, thank you @Dracona_Dragonmother! Now I'll have to decide whether to do an enraged x dark lumina checker, or an alternating light/pacified and dark/enraged pattern.

    Mistletoe x Green Siyat, thank you @Lindis! Going through my AP catches this year has made me realize that I'm apparently quite fond of green siyat pairings.

    5g Holly x White, thank you @Herk! I wasn't quite sure which way I wanted it to gender since it's not a perfect checker, but now I wish I'd influenced it male. Oh well, I'll find something to do with it.

    2g Enraged x Scimitar-wing, thank you @Predat0rs!

    2g Winter Magi x Arcana, thank you @natli! This was actually very kindly gifted to me, but apparently was originally an AP catch.

    Another 2g Winter Magi x Arcana, thank you @celis! I'm planning on making a checker out of this (I have a bunch I also traded for) and it's great to have extras.


    And thank you to the people who abandoned this and this that I bred; I discovered I really liked these pairings after I'd already let them get auto-abandoned (Arcanas go great with everything, okay), and I just so happened to be in the AP when they started showing up. Now maybe I will have a chance to do my Snow x Arcana checker after all!


    And my post-holiday catches (all >1 day left, so unfortunately there's quite a bit of misgendering) :

    2g Aria x Hellfire, thank you breeder!

    2g Hellfire x Cavern lurker, thank you breeder!

    And the last few are all from @Terrafreaky1234. Thank you! The witchlight x terrae unfortunately misgendered, but I might have to try that pairing next Halloween.

    2x Hollies

    2x Snow Angels (White-winged)

    I'm about to go to bed, but I'll answer first thing in the morning.

  4. Time to post Valentine's catches now that it's over!


    https://dragcave.net/lineage/g3tBr- 2g Sweetling x Nhiostrife; thank you Nakuru!

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/eEE1P- 3g Sweetling x Tan Ridgewing, thank you Nyara! I didn't want too many 3g checkers I didn't have mates for already, but this one is very pretty.

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/MQBJt- 4g Sweetling x Blusang with alt base. Thank you bloodonmyfangs! I love the alt CBs.


    https://dragcave.net/lineage/kgdts- 2g Rosebud x Gray. Eeeee, I can finally breed a mate to this lady! Thank you so much tishavara!

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/tyYGS- 2g Rosebud x Blusang, thank you arenee1999. Surprised by how pretty this looks, definitely breeding a mate!

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/4HZfo- 2g Rosebud x Witchlight. Thank you breeder! I love witchlights. <3

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/J7L2M- 2g Rosebud x White- simple, but pretty. The parents both have 4-digit codes too. Thank you breeder!

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/MEEXY- 2g Rosebud x Black Marrow, thank you breeder! I love the code of this one.

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/NS3QG- 2g Rosebud x Almandine, thank you breeder! Almandines go great with the lighter pinks/whites of the rosebuds.

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/O9Lch- 3g Rosebud x Grave, thank you johnnalola! Very interesting pairing.

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/GaRzy- 3g Rosebud x Gaia. Thank you breeder! I actually caught a sibling to this first, but went with this egg for the code.


    https://dragcave.net/lineage/GrtHX- 2g Arsani x GoN, thank you ScytheDragon! I'll have to see if I can find a mate for this. Too bad Arsani x GoN makes Avatars of Change instead of Creation.

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/nj9ul- Inbred nhiostrife checker from Caballo Marino; thank you so much DragonMaiden! This is gorgeous.

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/vKi1h- 2g RA x Hellfire Wyvern. Anything with female hellfires is gorgeous, of course. :D Thank you breeder! This'll make a pretty checker.


    https://dragcave.net/lineage/2zTvu- 3g Heartstealing x Black. Wow, this is exactly what I was looking for all event and had given up on finding. Thank you so much prpldrgnfr!

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/l1lMt- 2g Heartstealing x Chrono Xenowyrm; I love the names, thank you breeder!

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/YmFd2- 3g Heartstealing x Kingcrowne. I was planning on looking for one of these since I've been building this lineage, and I ended up finding one right away! Thank you so much Terces!

    https://dragcave.net/lineage/ktMdB- 4g Almandine x Heartstealing, again from Terces! The bottom half of the lineage is actually my dragons, but I neglected to keep one for myself last year, so this'll be useful for continuing the lineage.


    And the luckiest catch, 2g Heartstealing x Black from the Heartstealing spriter's alt! Thank you so much, breeder/spriter.

  5. Do green spinels breed true when bred with a non-earth mate? Let's say I have already have a green spinel and breed it to a desipis (non-earth element)- will the offspring be green or will it default back to purple?

  6. I arranged a trade for a beautiful 3g EG Striped River from spriters' alts. I had it fogged, since I was being so careful, and unfogged it to admire the lineage... only to promptly abandon it? I have no recollection of this, but apparently I did it.


    x_x Good job me!

  7. 3g Enraged Aegis x Desipis: Thank you Waldmensch! He'll be enraged after the next failed vampire bite/other accident.

    3g Winter Magi x Thunder: Thank you @tjenni! I think I may actually have a mate for this sitting around somewhere.

    Holly x Silver Shimmer Deadline: Thank you @Ashtoret! Deadlines are probably my favorite type of lineage. Might take a year, but definitely planning on a breeding a mate for this to make it into a deadline checker. :D

    4g Mistletoe x Gaia: Thank you Ramani! Very pretty, I never thought about this pairing. Love how the shades of green go together.

    3g Mistletoe with three Spriter's Alts: Thank you breeder! Love spriters' alt lineages. <3

    2g Snow x Frill: Thank you breeder! I'll see about breeding a mate for this.


    And fogged for safety:

    4g Mistletoe x Bronze Tinsel: Thank you harlequinraven! I don't know if I've seen a prize checker get to such a high generation before.

    2g Snow from Tan Spriter's Alt x Khusa: Thank you very much breeder/spriter! <3 This one is lovely.

  8. Have to Breed:

    2x CB Winter Magi

    1x CB Mistletoe

    I can also breed some 3g Winter Magi checkers and a Gold x Winter Magi checker up to 5g, I believe.


    Your choice of mate, of course.


    Looking For:

    Snow (Christmas 2017) x Witchlight

    Snow (2017) x Kingcrowne

    Snow (2017) x Almandine Pyralspite


    PM me please!

  9. Actually from last year, but I'm really remembering it now after Valentines breeding.


    For the 2016 Valentine dragons, I only had one incubate left, so I used it one of my CBs so I'd have one to breed with sooner. I go on DC rarely except for holidays, so I forgot about this site. Turned out one had died, but the non-incubated egg still had around 17 hours left. That's how I ended up with only one mutamore. :'( At least Mutamores are my least favorite Valentines, but still, they're kind of charming. At least I have one.


    This really changed how I raise eggs- now I always put them in one hatchery after their first day, just in case I forget, and only incubate with less than 5 days left. At least that's a positive.

  10. 3G Almandine x Heartstealing, thank you breeder! Beautiful combo, I'll find a mate for her!

    Glad you like it, love the name you chose for her!


    Adults I've grabbed:

    4th Gen Rosebud x Nebula- Thank you elennilda!


    3th Gen Heartseeker x Ribbon Dancer with Spriters' Alts- Wow, thank you very much breeder!

    4th Gen Heartseeker x Turpentine- Thank you breeder!


    3rd Gen RA x Balloon- Very pretty, thank you breeder!

    2nd Gen RA x Shadow Walker- Nice, thank you graves!

    3rd Gen RA x Thunder- Ooh, thank you breeder! I'll try to find a mate for this one.


    3rd Gen Heartstealer x Water- Thank you breeder!

    2nd Gen Heartstealer x Xeno Magi- Thank you HoodaThunkIt! I think I might actually have a mate sitting around somewhere.


    Very Late Christmas Dragon:

    3rd Gen Aria x Winter Magi- Thank you very much for this one, Lavinia! I happened to be working on a 3rd gen checker with my existing dragons when I caught this, so I'm already able to make a fourth gen.

  11. Or heck, just replace the sprites immediately with whatever other amazing Valentine concept was second place this time around. I imagine there's at least a dozen nice options.

    I too think that this might've been the best option. I mean, no option was going to be good, and it's easy to say now that such and such would've been the best option, but at least then you don't have the criticisms saying "cheap knockoff" or saying it's disrespectful to the original spriters to just replace the sprite with a similar one.

  12. Looking at TJ's part of the story, and the images posted with similarities... I just don't really see it. I mean, the back legs are similar, but that's an incredibly generic pose that doesn't seem difficult to replicate at all. Sure, the thing about the sketch being displayed on DeviantArt is new, but it sounds like the main issue was with the posing, and that just seems silly to me. Of course, what's done is done, and it's still impressive that a new sprite was made over the span of two days, but it really just doesn't seem like pulling the original was necessary.


    That's of course, just my opinion, and I'm not particularly well-versed in art.
