Flight Rising all the time every time

It's time to talk dragons! I mean, I'm sure many of you talk dragons all the time, on Plurk, where I can't see it. But longform talking about dragons! Plans. Because I want to talk about dragons too. I have been unable to think about anything but pixel dragons for days now, possibly to avoid thought about my impending birthday.

I pruned my lair yesterday. I had been holding on to a bunch of basic dragons, mostly from my progen's first clutch, and I kicked them out. And I've been having thoughts about dragons and maybe putting them out here will keep me from wasting my money on things not in my plan.

So without further ado, a lair review of sincere, #30061.

Adalyn, platinum/splash/avocado, my progen. Without any genes or frills, but I love her, and am stuck with her, I want to get her breed changed and gened up -- but I can't decide how! I think I either want her to become a Wildclaw or a Skydancer., but there's a lot I don't know about the latter. I just saw a WC with speckle body who looked great, and I like seraph wings on WC, but both might be a bit much... Speckle/shimmer or iri/seraph?? But tiger would look cool on her too. Ugh. Decisions!!

I am planning to breed her with Pharis, a PC with eyespot wings, for these gorgeous babies, but she can also breed with Tyr for gorgeous babies.

Ambrosia, violet/violet/goldenrod, the only remaining of Addy and Garish's first clutch. She's obviously a plain vanilla guardian but she has good colors and works with Heimdall who is proving difficult, so I'm reluctant to give her up. I don't really have any plans for her though??

Nyx, midnight iridescent/sky shimmer/jungle. My first double gened dragon. She is already fully gened so she is an obvious candidate for a breed change -- if I go WC for Addy then she could easily go for Skydancer!

I could breed her with Heimdall today and they would have guaranteed shimmerbabies. But if I wait and breedchange her to SD first, she could have immediate SD babies... But what if SD babies are rarer than Ridge/PC/Snapper/etc? Maybe I should wait for Tyr to be available. I checked on their babies this morning and holy crap they can NOT have an ugly baby. omg I just want to be hatching babies all the time. Heimdall and Nyx have a less impressive track record.

In the future I can breed her with Eltire for shimmers to okay results and Pharis for eye spot maybe shimmers to better results.

Liddel, aqua iridescent/ice shimmer/silver. How did I end up buying two iri/shimmers and they're both girls? Sigh. Anyway, this baby is also a candidate for scrolling, though she's lovely the way she is. I don't know what I would change her into, though!

I can breed her with Heimdall to guaranteed shimmers and maybe iris with much better results than Nyx, and to Eltire for also guaranteed shimmers and maybe iris and maybe spirals! Liddel is my pretty baby factory.

On to the boys. Garish, splash/magenta/tangerine, my other, FR-generated progen. Isn't he hideous? He is a neon dragon. I spent a long time agonizing over how ugly he is but his colors aren't actually terrible in breeding, just... on him. But of course he has a dangerous propensity to include FUCKING MAGENTA in his colors. I spent a while trolling for dragons with his coloring to see what they did to make him less ugly, since there's no reason to get rid of him and maybe he can be useful. Iri/shimmer spiral would be a good look for him, I think, but you can offer suggestions if you have any!

No current breeding plans for Gary.

Tyr, platinum tiger/rust/azure Ridgeback. He's my first non-starter! I don't know what if anything to do for a secondary gene, but his tigerness and Ridgeness have already won him admirers. He is currently off the market, waiting for a lovely Pearlcatcher lady owned by a stranger to come to my nest for breeding with a split clutch.

Tragically off the market, might I add, because of the aforementioned gorgeous babies with Nyx hnghhh they're both RTB I want their babies so bad so bad so bad. EVEN THEIR PINK BABIES ARE BEAUTIFUL!! He also makes pretty babies with Addy.

Heimdall, ivory/maize shimmer/sand. This boy is yellow, which makes him a bit of a hard sell for me in the genetics department: he's dangerously close to the pink range. He needs a lady with cool colors, blue/green. Fortunately Liddel is a great match for him.

Eltire, jade/ice shimmer/silver Spiral. I can't stay away from shimmers. Anyway, this boy is going to be gorgeous when he grows up. He's gorgeous now! Also a pretty baby factory with Liddel. Should he be iridescent so I have an iri/shimmer pair? What primary looks good on spirals?

Pharis, ice/sunshine eyespot/sky Pearlcatcher. My cautionary tale. I was the second person on a list for a shimmer Wildclaw, and they only had one egg yesterday. Rather than wait another 35-40 days, I agreed to take him, because he and Addy are so compatible, and he has great color. No more reserves for me, though. What sort of primary... Would he look good with clown? Hmm.

Current plans

  • August 23: Tyr and the random Pearlcatcher, Glade for these PC or Ridge babies that maybe have tiger but nothing else who will not be as pretty as Nyx's babies... /stares at them resentfully

  • WHENEVER SKYDANCERS COME OUT: Nyx and Tyr!!!! Also, a stripe gene for Tyr.

  • September 1: Eltire and Jes's baby Anshar, for these babies, which will be Spiral or PC and have a potential for shimmer and/or tiger

  • September 2: Pharis and Val's baby spiral, for these babies, which will be Spiral or PC and have a potential for clown and a guaranteed eye spots

    Future breeding pairs:
    Adalyn/Pharis: guardian/pearlcatcher; potential eye spot secondary
    Nyx/Tyr: guardian/ridgeback; guaranteed tiger or iridescent primary, potential shimmer secondary
    Nyx/Pharis: guardian/pearlcatcher; potential iridescent primary, guaranteed eye spot or shimmer secondary
    Liddel/Eltire: spiral/mirror; potential iridescent primary, guaranteed shimmer secondary
    Liddel/Heimdall: mirror; potential iridescent primary, guaranteed shimmer secondary

Now for audience participation!!!


If you have any suggestions on breed changes (mostly for Adalyn, Nyx, Liddel)
If you have any suggestions on genes (for everyone who is not double-gened already)
If you think your dragon would be an amazing match for someone (especially Heimdall or Garish)
If you want to stake a claim on one of these pair's babies
If you want to buy me scrolls or genes a Wildclaw or an Imperial
If you have a fucking non-starter female to go with some of these non-starter males because I JUST REALIZED I DON'T
If you want to tell me to ditch that PC and just breed Nyx and Tyr right now or when Nyx is a Skydancer
If you just want to tell me about your dragons I might find interesting

COMMENT HERE talk to me about dragons pleeeeease /sobs and eyes Plurk resentfully
