The Sides of the Force Giveaway (Flight Rising)

Update: The giveaway is over! I want to thank all who participated. Yes, only one dragon was chosen but I can see many others viewed this post. If you don't want to wait for the next giveaway to get a dragon there are a  few options. I sell dragons in the Auction House as well as my own Dragon Shop. On the forums there are places where people sell and giveaway dragons.

If you found out about Flight Rising from this giveaway, when you register you can say that jashykins referred you to the site.

My clan has their own Facebook Page where you can find out about the lore that is still evolving. It would be awesome if you gave me feedback.

Feel free to start discussing the Force in the comments of this post.

In Star Wars there are multiple sides of the Force. There is the Dark Side which is the side used for evil. And there is the Light Side which is used for good. Both sides need to be in balance, hence the prophecy with Anakin Skywalker in the prequels.

I know a lot of Star Wars fans might find the good vs evil aspect compelling. But I prefer my view on the force, plus both the Jedi and Sith, to be more complex. I always hate it when the movies and Expanded Universe (EU) have these chances to have good characters believe in a more complex view of the Force and then do nothing.

In my quest to give back to my loyal blog readers, here's another giveaway. This time I'm giving away dragons (I know, shocking) from the site Flight Rising. Unlike Dragon Cave, you can't sign up at any time but have to wait for a registration window. Go to the HOME PAGE of Flight Rising to check when the next registration window is. Even if you can't make this giveaway, you can participate in a future one. I am jashykins on the site.

Now this giveaway is running a little differently than my Dragon Cave one due to how breeding is done on Flight Rising. The number of dragons I give away each time is dependent on how many eggs are produced. I have selling my dragons in the Auction House and Exalting others as part of my income on the site. Losing a little here and there is fine, giving away half of my eggs each time is a no no for me.

This time I am giving away two eggs.

Below are listed the rules of this giveaway:

Marco (Table of Contents)

I am Marco and I am a member of the Intelligence Department in Seitou's clan. I am of the Shadow Flight and serve the Shadowbinder.

I don't tend to act very serious so that many people think that I don't take anything seriously. However, my joking nature is so that I don't get worn down by life. Life can either be sad or funny. I prefer to look at life as a joke for that reason.

She's Too Bloody (MaryGraham's Journal)

I like my duties as a doctor for Seitou's Clan. I get to keep the clan healthy and not get too involved in the fighting. Though I will fight if I need to.

The bad thing about being a doctor is...well...Marco. He is also a Fae and sort of cute. I think he likes me as he's always looking at me at odd moments. He also gets himself injured in amazing ways.

Is he trying to impress me, trying to have an excuse to visit me, or is he just an idiot?

I don't like relationships in general. I think that they limit a dragon. Make a dragon forget what's important. I know Jash agrees with this, though how she arrived at that conclusion is much different than how I did.

For me I know I have a destiny and if I acted on my feelings for Marco, I might destroy the clan because of it.

For the Season 2 Finale, Cat and myself debate whether Tobias got himself stuck in morph or if it was merely an accident.

RachelBerenson (Table of Contents)

I am RachelBerenson and I am a warrior in Seitou's clan. I am of the Shadow Flight and serve the Shadowbinder.

Many people think of me as a killer, a berserker, and incapable of regular draconic emotion. I don't mind my foes seeing me this way, but when my clanmates feel this way I feel hurt. Not only am I a fighter, but a girl. I love spending time figuring out fashion and I also question how violent I am. I am not a thoughtless killer like many seem to think I am.

JakeBerenson (Table of Contents)

I am JakeBerenson and I am a warrior in Seitou's clan. I am of the Shadow Flight and serve the Shadowbinder.

I never wanted my job as a warrior of the clan, but I seemed to be born for it. I was good at telling which of my clanmates were good for certain missions. I even got good at manipulating them, when I needed to, to decide to go on missions with what they thought was their own free will. I care very strongly for my clan and hope one day to retire my warrior duties.

I talk about The Strain episode "The Battle for Red Hook".

Falling Skies "Reborn" Review

I talk about the Falling Skies series finale.

Kali (Table of Contents)

I am Kali and I am an assassin in Seitou's clan. I am of the Shadow Flight and serve the Shadowbinder.

I am very aggressive even though the clan I originally came from was tame. Tame compared to other clans that served the Plaguebringer. My clan was taken over by things that made me, and my clanmates, live inside our bodies like slaves. Through the years anger and rage built until the day I was finally freed. It took me awhile to learn to control my anger as I had never had to learn such restraint before, though my bloodthirst has never gone away.

MaryGraham (Table of Contents)

I am MaryGraham and I am a doctor in Seitou's clan. I am of the Shadow Flight and serve the Shadowbinder.

I tend to be highly nervous and unsure of myself most of the time. So some dragons think that I'll quickly get into any relationship if I deem it cute enough. That isn't true as sometimes relationships take me away from my destiny. And my destiny is the most important thing to me.

I will be posting on some of what I consider important stuff I have blogged about this week and updates on upcoming chapters of fics/projects.

I will be attempting to post these posts once a week every Sunday, but don't be surprised if I miss a week or two (hey, I sometimes have an actual life).

Shipping Confessions: Elfangor/Loren (Animorphs)

Here is another, very rare, canon ship. This time from the Animorphs series. But Loren and Elfangor-Sirinial-Shamtul is a couple that has very far reaching effects in the Animorphs series, as well as being dear to my heart.

With this ship there aren't only two lives affected, but the lives of the Animorphs themselves.

There will be some big spoilers in this part of Shipping Confessions so if you haven't read The Andalite Chronicles and #49, stop reading and only continue after you've read those two books in the series.

For all those who don't mind spoilers or have read the books, let's start talking about Loren and Elfangor in full.

My New Duties (Elfangor's Journal)

Originally being from the Water Flight made being in Seitou's Clan a little difficult. One of the minor things was how everyone around me called the planet Sornieth. For awhile it seemed like that meant they were disrespecting the Tidelord.

Then I realized both that the name Sornieth wasn't disrespecting him and that I now served the Shadowbinder.

Another odd thing that started happening to me in the clan was Birchurawkp making various excuses to be with me now that I'm an adult. They pretend, I swear they're just pretending, to make sure I'm healthy and judging who I'd breed well with. They also spend lots of time looking at me while I practice fighting.

But maybe I'm just imagining things.

Jash Reads: Animorphs #1 The Invasion (Chapters 24 and 25)

I read chapters 24 and 25 from Animorphs #1 The Invasion by K.A.Applegate.

MartinBedell (Table of Contents)

I am MartinBedell and I am a warrior in Seitou's clan. I am of the Shadow Flight and serve the Shadowbinder.

I know I am better than anyone else, way better. But I find arrogance isn't the best way to get this point across. The best way is to act like you just don't care. I care when serious things start to happen, but I still put on an air of not caring. I am more than ready to defend my clan once there is a need.
