  1. Now I know why Terebinth and Paint Thinner were taken when I tried those for my new Turpentines wink.gif

     

    I did get the turpentine derivatives Camphor, Geraniol, Linalool, and Pinene.

     

    Other recent names include:

    Colonel Mustard

    Literacy

    Major Pain

    Major Payne

    Sound Wave


  2. I froze my first hatchling after less than two weeks on the site - a CB White male.

     

    A glance at my scroll would tell you that I have never been against freezing - I have 295 frozen dragons. For each type of dragon, I try to get male/female adults, male/female S2 hatchlings, and a S1 hatchling. Even the limited holiday dragons are subject to freezing. I think most of the hatchlings are cute and sometimes I like the hatchling sprites more than the adult sprites. smile.gif

     

    It never bothers me when others freeze the offspring of my dragons.

    Egg turned (my first to do so), but died. sad.gif


  4. @codyne, Congratulations on finishing your project! Two years is a long time to stick with something. smile.gif

     

    In this past week, I've tried three new pairs for projects and had refusal, refusal, and refusal. mad.gif The last one is the worst because even if it's two 2nd gens, I don't own any of the parents so I can't just breed a new mate.

     

    I need to get out of this run of bad luck!


  5. Now I'm worried about the bred black egg that I traded for. I like the Alt sprites better than the regular ones, but it would put a wrinkle in my future breeding plans.

    Yep, it alt'd. rolleyes.gif I'm going to try to swap it so I can try again for a non-Alt, but I guess I don't mind keeping her, since I do like the Alt sprites. I'm just not sure if I'll be able to use it for my planned breedings now.

     

    On the plus side, this worked.


  6. Now I'm worried about the bred black egg that I traded for. I like the Alt sprites better than the regular ones, but it would put a wrinkle in my future breeding plans.

     

    And refusal. Luckily, it should be easy to rebreed since I need a common 2nd gen.


  7. My first egg was a 2nd gen Silver snatched from the AP. A week later, I got a CB Magi and a CB Split. Number four was a Paper.

     

    Within my first 25 dragons were three dinos, two papers, two silvers, and a CB gold, plus two blacks and two bright pinks which weren't rare at the time. laugh.gif


  8. I'm pondering my next (long-term, maybe impossible laugh.gif) breeding project and I was wondering if anyone here had any advice or suggestions.

     

    I'm looking at doing an Alt Sweetling Rainbow pattern, but I'm not sure exactly how I want the pattern to go. I have a few ideas: ideas A-D and idea E. I'm leaning towards A or B, but I'd love to hear opinions or suggestions on other possibilities.


  9. I found this red egg in the AP earlier. Normally, I don't like male Moonstones, but the navy/light blue looks nice with the red. The egg even has a fun code to boot. smile.gif

     

    If the breeder sees this, thank you for the lovely egg! It's already been influenced and I have a few potential names picked out.


  10. I'm so close to finally finishing my first real breeding project: lineage preview

    *squeals* That's my dragons' daughter down at the bottom. biggrin.gif

    So pretty! I absolutely love seeing things I've bred be used to make even more pretties. Thank you so much for posting this and letting me see it. <3

    Thank you for breeding (& releasing) such a lovely dragon! Water Horses aren't the most popular breed, but I think they look lovely if you find the right mate. smile.gif


  11. I'm so close to finally finishing my first real breeding project: lineage preview

     

    I caught the female in the AP and thought she was so beautiful that I did a breeding project to make a "matching" mate to the best of my ability. I actually like how the colors of the Water Horse & Sunsongs look together so much that I plan to go back and do a regular checker once I get an egg from these two.


  12. I snagged her from the AP.

     

    Today, she actually accepted my Yulebuck, and they produced this! Which I dropped into the AP, because I am awesome like that biggrin.gif

    I was just going through the older pages of this thread and found this. I'm the one who snagged the vine egg you dropped. Thank you! Luckily, she liked my Frill male; I dropped their offspring in the AP to continue the trend.

     

    A few of my other AP catches:

    2nd gen Silver from years ago

    2nd gen Ridgewing Tinsel fail

    4th gen Shallow Water

     

    I caught most of my tinsels in the AP as well.

     


  13. In general, I try to use the first letter of the father's name as the first letter of the offspring's name, but I will sometimes try to continue themes as well. When I do, I'm always a bit afraid that I'll offend someone or steal a name that someone is planning to use in the future.

     

    I worried about that for this vine which I believe was an AP find. Same for this geode (also an AP find).

     

    I traded for these two (1 & 2) as a pair of hatchlings and I tried to continue the names/made them a breeding pair.

     

    My original Ridgewings are named after chips or cookies (unsure.gif) and it made my day when I saw that someone did this.


  14. I've been looking back through the posts trying to find some, but does anyone have examples of checkers of either Fall/Harvest or Summer/Orange that they would care to show off? I have a breeding project idea, but I'm trying to figure out how it would look before I start and my only graphics editing software is Paint laugh.gif. Any help would be appreciated!


  15. How many do I have to keep for myself or how many have I grabbed? I have and am keeping five myself: male/female adult, male/female hatchling, and ungendered hatchling (or they will be, they were all influenced as appropriate). I have grabbed quite a few more, but now my teleports are all on cool down or being saved for something else, so no more GW grabbing for a bit.

     

    Oddly enough, on the first day, I had a harder time catching the Royal Blue eggs. I was surprised when I went to the trading forums and saw that the GWs were considered harder to get!

     

    I am very lucky to have a very fast connection so I've been able to catch a GW in every hourly drop that I've tried except perhaps one. I never realized how much the connection matters until I tried to grab Hollies from the AP this Christmas and realized that I couldn't even catch commons in the AP due to the sluggish connection.
