Share your Valentine breeding ideas for inspiration and feedback!

Recommended Posts

Wow, you guys posted so many gorgeous ideas! :wub:

 

Some of my favorites (I can't post them all!) are

@Fuzzbucket's Heartseeker x Pillow and Radiant Angel x Teimarr (never would have thought of the Teimarr!) and Heartstealer x Daydream is a knockout!

@Lantean_Pegasus Heartseeker x Candelabra (this one surprised me, as I didn't think I would like dark on dark, but it is so chocolatey! Same with the Heartseeker x Spirit Ward, especially at night. And the Heartseeker x Stormrider is beautiful and so unexpected. And they looked great with Water Dragons as you said, and so many other dragons. And this Heartstealer x Blue Gemshard is indeed lovely. Thanks for the Terrae idea; Terrae x Soulstone! Once I get my CB Soulstones this year, I may start on that one next year.

@Keileon I especially love the Floral-Crowned x Rosy Solstice.

@catstaff Loving the Sweetling x Mint! They look great together. And the Val '09 x Blue Lunar Herald!

@littleangelamy22 The Floral-Crowned x Blue Gemshard, just wow. But then @Ruby Eyes mentioned Black Truffle and ... wow! 😍 And I love your idea of the Floral-Crowned x Vine!

@relaks That Floral-Crowned x Witchlight is amazing ... and wow, Mutamore x Soulstone looks awesome! OMG your Kingcrowne x Soulstone ... breathtaking!

@Tigerkralle The Whiptails running for the last piece of chocolate ... I love that! What a beautiful pairing. Heartseeker x Whiptail and you posted so many gorgeous ideas I don't know how to narrow it down to only a few! "Lovely commons" indeed, you and fuzz pair them so beautifully!

@Sirithiliel Love the Floral-Crowned x Plated Colossus and @Andromen hadn't considered Mutamores with Scripts! @TerraAnne the Heartstealers are lovely with the Shimmers, for sure!

 

So many good ideas, so little time XD

I actually managed to find a 2G unrelated to mine in the AP! :lol:

Same! I was lucky to find someone who had a CB Gold they could breed their RA with, and I had what they needed! :D

I actually decided on Floral-Crowns and Olives. :blink: Olives were the most pleasing to my eyes with the Floral-Crowns. I literally went through and checked (using Allure's Lineage viewer) what they looked like with every female dragon they can breed with. 🤣

I want to make something really cool out of this valentine’s lineage:

 

https://dragcave.net/view/Pyeia

 

I want to breed something to mirror the lineage it has now but flipped (so instead of female valentines, it would be mostly pinks with a male streak of something else kinda making a < shape if that makes sense?) Obviously valentine dragons are only female so I’d love some ideas for male dragons that would look good with the pink/valentine theme I have?

Black Teas and Flamingos are possible, although they both have black markings on them. Maybe Sunrise or Aria? But I kind of agree with Ruby that Almandine might be the best choice.

Mutamores are another possibility... they're more purplish than pinkish, but they are male valentines, and closer to the Val '09 color than either sweetlings (too pale) or Heartseekers (blatantly red). Floral-crowns might also work, although they are definitely multicolored.

I so want to see what the new Sakuhana wyverns look like with the verdigris coppers, rainbow coppers, pink zyus, and red spinels.  ❤️ They look to be my favorites when trying to pair them together for projects.

I have yet to figure out how to use the blank template...

 

I did these connection:

Floral Crowned x Red Gemshard https://dragcave.net/lineage/lGYJU

Soulstone x King Crowne https://dragcave.net/view/Lo00D

each two, so I can go on with the lineage^^

 

and from what I caught I liked so much I will continue or copy:

Radiant Angel x Monarch https://dragcave.net/view/Nkhqh

Rosebud x Holly https://dragcave.net/lineage/FQuC0

Floral Crowned x Garland https://dragcave.net/lineage/A67mj

Finally my 2nd gens grew up, so I can post the combinations I went with this year:

 

Heartseeker x Freckled I like their poses together (and the Freckle is looking up to the HS so adorably), as well as the colours.

Heartseeker x Razorcrest The deep, rich red of the HS and the deep, rich blue of the wyvern are so nice together, and the chocolate wings are fitted by the coppery wings and fluff.

I decided against the pairing with Starsinger because, while those are beautiful, I find them very hard to make out in their lineage tile. :-( And I didn't have a HS left for a pairing with Black Zyomorph, but I nudged my husband, and voila, Heartseeker x Black Zyumorph.

 

Val 09 x Nocturne Is a perfect match ! Only downside - it only really works at night (look at it then!). But then the "older" style of the sprites and the slightly muted but still strong colours are just made for each other !

Sweetling x Aether looks as good as I expected it to. Pink x light blue. Pastels all the way ! 😉

Sweetling x Blue Siyat is an idea I though worth following through with, and I'm quite happy how it turned out. Both dragons look somewhat fragile, and the colours go well together.

Rosebud x Aether Even better than SweetlingxAether, because not only matching colours but also more fluff and frill.

Rosebud x Anagallis More of a contrast, but his red mask and gloves are somewhat fitting for a charming swashbuckly suitor of the rosy lady.

Arsani x Blue Siyat Not perfect, but the sprite sizes, poses and colours are a decent fit.

Arsani x Bronze Lunar Herald Made a 2nd gen because I need to make/find a mate for this 4th gen.

Radiant Angel x Freckled I just like Freckleds, and they actually fit the red/gold/white of the Angels.

Soulstone x Candelabra Colours, poses, festiveness. Plus, the Soulstones have their pearl and Candelabras their orb, nice accessories. ( @relaks: Looks like we have very similar tastes for the Soulstones. Would've done Kingcrown as my 2nd option as well, but my husband beat me to it. ;-))

Soulstone x Purple Siyat I wanted to do something with my Siyats, and the Soulstones look good with things that are purple but not too brightly so.

I had a hard time finding things that I liked with Floral-Crowned, but I was happy when I came up with these:

Floral-Crowned x Golden Floret Floral crown, floral mane - these two were made for each other. And I always thought that the metallics of the wyvern have a greenish tint to them. Perfect match for the Floral's green wings and crown. (Thanks for the mockup, relaks, it cemented my decision !)

Floral-Crowned x Freckled Look who it is again - the Freckles ! *g* Both have pixely textures on their backs, and the reds match. The Freckled's warm yellow works with the warm green in the Floral's wings.

My friend Moonshimmer came up with another idea I liked: Floral-Crowned x Blue Gemshard.

Radiant Angel from Skywing: https://dragcave.net/lineage/ZVeO2 I'll be able to breed a proper z-mate for it - it'll just take a LOT of attempts :lol:

Likewise, Sweetling from blue Gemshard: https://dragcave.net/lineage/7dit9 just for different reasons.

Also, Arsani from green Gemshard: https://dragcave.net/lineage/V0jJA

Wish me luck :D

 

Soulstone from GoN https://dragcave.net/lineage/QPSUn They should make Avatar of Creation, so basically blue and purple combined.

@Ruby Eyes Yep, Soulstone x GoN make Creation. Might I ask you for a bloodswap when you get a mate for your 2nd gen ? ;-)

Congrats on gettin a Z holiday (Angel) from Z's ! Wow, what are the odds ?!

And best of luck with the Gemshard roulette !

This year, so far I have bred the following pairings:

 

* Rosebud x Stone (I LOVE this pairing!)

 

* Sweetling x Waterhorse (lovely!)

 

* Valentine (2009) x Winter (this turned out beautifully!)

 

* Floral-Crowned x Olive (I love this combo!)

 

* Heartseeker x Dark Green (Vine) Classic combo; love it!

 

* Radiant Angel x Spirit Ward - LOVE this too!

 

* Heartstealing x Daydream - Love!

 

* Soulstone x Harvest - Love!

 

* Mutamore x Mint -- I went with my one Upside Down Mint. 

 

 

I LOVE, LOVE, all the ones I have bred so far this year! :wub: 

 

Now to the ones I haven't bred yet: 

 

~~~~

 

I am stuck so far with what to breed for the following pairs. Haven't bred any of these yet. If I have crossed them out, I have decided what to breed them with and I will post it. :)

 

Heartseeker: 

 

I want lovely common/uncommon pairings this year. I am considering Albino, Dark Green/Vine (I would love to do Vine with something), other choices? not sure yet. 

Or Pillow? I had forgotten about that lovely combination from last year! :wub: Maybe Plated Colossus? Red Dorsal? Harvest? -- ETA: ended up going with Dark Green Vine! So pretty!

 

Radiant Angel:

 

I am strongly considering Spirit Ward.  Still looking at all ideas for commons/uncommons. ETA: Ended up going with Spirit Ward!

 

Heartstealing:

 

Not sure. Striped River is popular, but I am still looking for what to breed this year. Don't really care for metal checkers, so ... still looking.

ETA: Oh! Oh! I totally forgot about that Heartstealing x Daydream that Fuzz posted last year! This may be the one ... still going through the possibilities! catstaff's Blue Lunar Herald combo is beautiful as well! ETA: Went with Daydream! Thank you @Fuzzbucket for this great idea!

 

Mutamore:

 

??  Ended up going with Mints. One was my Upside Down Mint.

 

Maybe Mint? Not sure.

 

Arsani:

 

?? Ended up going with Storm; looks quite nice!

 

Soulstone:

 

No idea yet! Would like a lovely common/uncommon on all my pairings. I may do the lovely Terrae pairing that @Lantean_Pegasus mentioned last year, but I am open to all common/uncommon ideas!  I would like to breed this pair next. I saw @Ruby Eyes's GoN idea and love it but I am thinking common/uncommon pairings.  Harvest?  Pillow? Speckle Throat? Freckle? (Haven't seen those pairings, if anyone wants to do a visual.) At this point, I am torn between Harvest and Terrae. Other ideas? ETA: Went with Harvest!  Was a very tough call between Harvest and Terrae! 

 

Sakuhana:

 

??

 

I have literally no ideas.  Hopefully someone can inspire me with their choices!

Again, Tercorn? Or Aqualis for eye-hurts :D Aeria Gloris might also work. I haven't decided what to do with mine, yet.

Thank you, Ruby Eyes! I had forgotten about the lovely Tercorns! Will add them to my list of possibilities. :) 

 

I forgot to share with folks the pairs I bred last year. I didn't have many CB Valentine in 2019, but here are the ones I did have and what I bred.

 

I focused mostly on Holiday x Holiday last year:

 

Heartstealing x Shadow Walker

 

Heartstealing x Holly

 

Radiant Angel x Desipis

 

In previous years, I have also bred 

 

Radiant Angel x Mistletoe

 

A checker example plucked from AP: https://dragcave.net/lineage/h235L

 

I would love to do Radiant Angel x Solstice, if I ever get back to doing more holiday x holiday. :)

 

Like this, except Rosy Solstice all the way through: https://dragcave.net/lineage/RsXLD

I do love my Mutamores with Carmine Wyverns.

See this example.

 

As for Sakuhana Wyverns. Have you tried them with Freckled Dragons?

It turned out lovely.

And have a look at them with Terrae.

 

Sweetlings are not that easy so it seems. I just tested this and i am not 100% sure i like it.

Tercorns are pink, but pink is not pink.

@missy_

If you ever get around to doing Radiant Agel x Solstice or Mistletoe, and need mates, just let me know. I did those lineages (will finish the Mistletoe one with 5th gen next Val), and it took me quite a while to find some bloodswaps.

 

For my Mutamores I went with Blue GemshardTan RidgewingGrey/Storm and Silver so far. (The Silver isn't (un)common, of course, but I wanted to throw the idea out there, anyway. 😉) I also like the Coastal Waverunner idea. Red Gemshard works, too.

 

Arsani with Spirit Ward (I like how similar their manes are, and the low-glow time looks great), Water (manes again), Royal BlueMoonstoneBlue GemshardBlusangAzure GlacewingWinter, Bronze Lunar Herald (Hey, look, I have other than blue partners !)

Also like these ideas: Grey/StormTerraeSilver Herald

 

@Tigerkralle

 

I'm prettty happy how my Sweetligs turned out with Aether and Blue Siyat, but that's going with pink+blue, again. 😉

Arsani x Enraged Aegis https://dragcave.net/lineage/wCUxf

 

So far, for Arsani, I am thinking one of these four combinations. I am leaning toward Storm, but I like all of them.

 

ETA: And the Storm combo won the day!

I realized I did fish a 4EG Carmine Wyvern x Mutamore out of the AP that needs a mate at some point. https://dragcave.net/lineage/NxPGY So maybe one year I will do that combo. Currently I am liking more contrasting colors, but it is appealing. :)

 

I also forgot about these other 4th even generation beauties I have snagged:

 

Valentine '09 x Green https://dragcave.net/lineage/rb42e
