  1. https://dragcave.net/teleport/080845f27db2b...4493b513c358923 3g winter x arsani
  2. https://dragcave.net/teleport/81f83f5836c4e...0627112163ce887 - Thanks for letting me know you have it, Odd! 3g Winter from Winter x Heartstealing.
  3. Thank you! What a lovely surprise! I got the Sweetling x SR checker.
  4. Um, businesses do not reveal their dirty laundry, and, as there are contracts involved, the Cave is under no obligation to reveal what happened, either. It would actually be really unprofessional of TJ to give more detailed explanation. It would also probably scare off spriters to know that behind-the-scenes issues could be made public. I can guarantee you that in the almost 9 years I've been hanging out here, we've never had an explanation of behind-the-scenes goings-on unless the spriter him or herself revealed it. Also, spriters have lives. They do not sit at a desk, drawing 24-7. As I doubt TJ would let the release go forward without thinking everything was in place, I'm guessing the need to change the sprites happened in the last 24-48 hours. So, some spriter sat down and worked something up in-between work/school/kids/sleep/etc. Spriters have tweaked the art after a release before. It seems likely it will happen again with these newest sprites and the dragon description. Patience. In a professional or school setting, critiques are required to contain both negative AND positive statements. I think it's a good idea to say, specifically, what does not look good to you and how to fix it. But remember to throw the spriter a bone when you're commenting, and say what you like about the art as well. Personally, I love the idea of the pearl being at the bottom of the sprite, held jauntily in the paws. It reminders me of rhythmic gymnasts who work with the ball. Also, thank you, thank you, thank you for a purple, somewhat frilly female adult! I'd been wanting a purple Valentine forever, and I had been longing for a more feminine-looking adult after a long spate of buff-looking releases. So, I know this post is going to get buried in the avalanche of drama, but I wanted to say all this "out-loud", if only for the record.
  5. PURPLE!!!! OMG the Dragon Cave gods have heard my pleas!!!! *bounce*
  6. Have: 2g Radiant Angel x Spessartine Pyralspite, 5d20hr Want: Other 2g Valentine x Common egg offers of the same time or less - 5d20hr or under. No holiday x holiday. I will look often and reject or accept quickly. Trade Link: https://dragcave.net/teleport/99e1ba5c6e40e...63abf39ceee9142
  7. I find it odd that we're only on page 4 (I sort by 50/page) after two days. Do you think people clean forgot that Valentine's is a Thing around here?
  8. https://dragcave.net/teleport/ec12a3ca2554d...4f98779b9a64ea0 - Enjoy, capeta! I precogged this, and it's going to be female. I caught it in the AP and was going to freeze it, but I don't have the heart to freeze a clean 2g. So, if you take this, please don't freeze it because I could have done that. ~_^ Also, seems like a good time to remind everyone that Valentine breeding starts tonight at midnight (Feb. 8). The above egg is hatchable or I wouldn't offer it. Happy breeding week, everyone!
  9. Yes, breeding starts tonight at midnight, which will be February 8. This doesn't change. A quick look through the news threads will confirm this. You can always count 7 days from the holiday day, including the holiday day, to determine when breeding starts for any of the 3 DC holiday weeks. However, because TJ is sometimes (minutes) late in turning on the holiday breeding, you should hold off until you see someone confirm that they saw or bred Valentine dragons. Mutamores, doubly so, because sometimes TJ forgets to turn on the latest breed, too. Last year, the holiday breeding news thread was posted on the 8th. In past years, it was posted a few days earlier. Not sure what's up this year. Personally, I'm dying for a purple or even blue Valentine dragon. All the pink, red and white is getting to me.
  10. https://dragcave.net/teleport/dbee493f99f5a...9f602d96d363148 3g Blue Lunar Herald x F Silver
  11. https://dragcave.net/teleport/092e5a9d7508f...36d9f4aae9eb58f
  12. Thank you, Ewi! I guess I'll keep my 3g at Vday and go for 4g! <3 I tried breeding it for the thread, but they only barely tolerate each other. No egg yet.
  13. I received a gift via direct request! cyradis4 -> stardust13: 3g nebula from Radiant Angel checker (direct request)

  15. I donated! stardust13 -> Ruby Eyes: 4g Gold from Rosebud checker (accepted) I donated! stardust13 -> oilbird: 3g Silver from F Shadow-walker checker (accepted) I donated! stardust13 -> Gealach: 2g Green Gemshard from Wrapping Wing (accepted) - this is the first one fulfilled of two requested. I donated! stardust13 -> thenameisplissken: 2g Swallowtail from Heartseeker (accepted) (I know, I know....I don't really need credit for it) I donated! stardust13 ->Dragonwolf: 2g Moonstone from 09 Valentine (accepted) OK, done for now, really, truly. I have one more 09 to try, but I'm a little confused by the 2 thenameisplissken requests on the list, so waiting for the update.
  16. This, OMG, this. I've been using the custom sort since the beginning, and I move my dragons around quite a bit. I can't begin to explain how difficult it is to sort the non-diamorphus dragons into place. A gender indicator would save me hours!
  17. Not sure what I can do with it yet, but who can resist a nice Dusk? That said I'll wait until the end of the night to gender and hatch - if you HAVE a good idea of what to do with it, PM me and I will send it to you!
  18. I claimed that one, although I'm going to double-check my adults to be sure I need it. Thank you for breeding shinies for us!
  19. I donated! stardust13 -> Xythus: 2g Imperial Fleshcrowne from Sweetling (accepted) I donated! stardust13 -> amamiya_ritsukabi29: 2g Misfit from Pumpkin (accepted) I donated! stardust13 -> Pryanka: 2g Celestial from Yulebuck (accepted) Suggestion: Would it make things too hard for the mods to separate the Snow Angel list into 3 lists by wing color? I saw that we have a separate list for Alt Sweetlings, and I thought the same might be a good thing for the Snow Angels from an organizational POV. I guess the same could be done for the Aegis, too. But just something to consider and possibly reject; no big deal.
  20. Mutamore 2gs I've collected so far: Carmine http://dragcave.net/lineage/89wTX Red-finned Tidal http://dragcave.net/lineage/SvLH8 Royal Blue https://dragcave.net/lineage/EeAkD Silver https://dragcave.net/lineage/RNTJZ Thalassa https://dragcave.net/lineage/IzJEi I probably won't mate all of these this year. Most of them came as low-time eggs, which makes me go ahead and keep them to consider. I am totally sold on Gemshard now, thanks, purplehaze! Ironically, every holiday I tell myself I won't make more metal checkers, but since I decided that, I've still made holiday metals based on good looks. So, I can't resist the silver, and I will probable mate the Carmine for sure as well. I could have sworn I saw and wanted Sapphire x Mutamore, but I don't have one. Anyone have one to show off? ~~~~~~ https://dragcave.net/lineage/ouBXP Is anyone else working with Male Balloon x Winter? This is one of my "finally mated after many years" lines. I'm not sure I want to build a second 3g, but if someone else had one, I'd be happy to have either winter or balloon. In the meantime, if you want the one I've linked, PM me in the next day or so.
  21. 5g 09 Valentine x Sunrise https://dragcave.net/teleport/238b57212b35a...c5292d19c628566 - Thanks for saying "thanks", Dinozaurek! It's rare! <3
  22. Quickie drops here: https://dragcave.net/teleport/e39b01f1e89a5...378d20f57c32a16 https://dragcave.net/teleport/00a6d8a5632ae...42b3fb09a64a210
  23. 3g Heartstealing x Brute - if you recognize the names, a post back would be pretty cool. Thanks! https://dragcave.net/teleport/55db2edbd639a...ef679b8ab2ec412
