The Lover in Me 4

The candlelight shifted the shadows on the scrolls I was reading. I had performed a spell so that the chilly night air did not disturb me. Luckily Marco wasn't here to disturb my current task of planning who would perform coitus in the third nest this time.

I grasped my head as I tried to think of who would be a good match this time around. What dragons would have the necessary genes to please the Shadowbinder? What genes did we need? What type of dragons would others be searching for this time of year?

Sipping more of my water, I looked at the charts I had made. Nazilla had strong genes for certain. She was Seitou's bodyguard, after all. If she was weak she would have never been given that position. But who to pair her with?

The Rage Within (RachelBerenson's Journal)

I could barely contain myself. I should have slept longer, but the thrill of an upcoming battle made it impossible for me to sleep. As the sun started to rise, I did some stretches. Seitou had ordered that all the warriors should fight off a clan of the Arcane Flight and Elfangor had agreed.

Those servants of the Arcanist had grown too confident in the domain of the Shadowbinder. I was more than willing to help teach them to keep off of our deity's territory.

And much as I loved the thrill of the upcoming battle, I feared how much I was anticipating it.

Who is Kylo Ren?

Even Kylo Ren's real name isn't known. Who do I think he is and why?

Glenn: Alive or Dead?

In The Walking Dead episode "Thank You" Glenn might not have actually died.

Crayak (Table of Contents)

I am Crayak, also called Crayon by my mate Ellimist, and I design bioweapons in Seitou's clan. I am of the Shadow Flight and serve the Shadowbinder.

I am non-binary and go by it pronouns. Only Ellimist knows this as my reasoning is that I am completely worthless. My adoring mate is the only one I trust with this information. I originally set out to serve the Plaguebringer, but some series of events led me to eventually serving the Shadowbinder.

Blood, Gore, and the Horror Genre Giveaway (Flight Rising)

Update: The giveaway is over. Thanks to everyone that participated. Maybe you were a member of Flight Rising and this giveaway made you a fan of my blog. Or maybe you're a fan of my blog who has suddenly learned about Flight Rising. If you're the latter, keep on the lookout for the next registration window.

If you are a member of Flight Rising and can't wait until my next giveaway to get dragons from me. You can always check out the Auction House and my Dragon Shop for dragons I'm selling.

I also do nest rentals and lend out my cauldron.

If you want to find out more about my clan feel free to check out my dragon's journals and the clan's facebook page.

Even though the giveaway is over, feel free to talk about the horror genre.

The horror genre seems to have been given a bad rep as of late. Terms like 'sick puppies' describe people like me who adore the horror genre. People who want to get scared out of their minds as they find that fun. Is it odd?

That's a question for another day.

While I adore b-movies, I do find a problem with horror movies and tv shows recently. A lot of the time they seem to show gore for gore's sake instead of having a good atmosphere with gore serving the plot.

Psycho (1960) is a slasher film, yet it isn't like the Final Destination films in their rush to show you the most gruesome deaths. It builds up an atmosphere and you get a sense of caring for the characters. That is why you care about who lives and who dies.

The Hannibal series (tv show, movies, and books) deal with the issue of cannibalism, among other things, and yet the series is held in high regards. This is due to, again, the characters holding things together. Hannibal Lecter, who is usually heralded as one of the best villains, is given more depth than a simple killer. He is made into an actual person.

Those are examples of exceptional horror. I'm not saying I hate movies like Final Destination, I was super excited to find all of the movies in one collection, but that the horror genre needs more variety.

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 dragons each time is a no no for me.

This time I am giving away two dragons.

Below are listed the rules of this giveaway:

Soma: A Deeper Look

A day or two ago I started watching a Let's Play by markiplier of the game Soma. I don't tend to watch Let's Plays as it means me keeping up with new parts coming out or just needing a lot of time to watch the entire thing.

But I watched this one. I then got so invested in the story, so many twists and turns, that I ended up watching another Let's Play of the same game by TheRPGMinx. Even though I have finished watching the game last night, it is still with me.

It left me with questions, as well as disturbing images, and so I felt the great need to make a blog post about it. I woke up drafting the first chapter of a fic that would continue the story (I don't have the time to write it so that's probably not going to happen).

Before I continue, I must warn you that there will be major spoilers. So if you don't want to be spoiled you can go play the game or watch any of the two Let's Plays I linked to.

 For those of you sticking with this: get ready for a wild ride.

The Walking Dead "First Time Again" Review

I talk about The Walking Dead episode "First Time Again".

Animorphs Mania: Tobias is Bi

I talk about my headcanon of Tobias being bisexual. I also talk about three people I strongly ship him with.

Ellimist (Table of Contents)

I am Ellimist, also called Eli and Toomin by my mate Crayak, and I am a doctor in Seitou's clan. I am of the Shadow Flight and serve the Shadowbinder.

I am genderfluid and I tend to prefer she/her pronouns. I care very much for all types of life, hence becoming a doctor in the clan. I also know that sometimes the protection of life requires a nudge in the right direction of certain creatures. Some people say that that is manipulation and shouldn't be done. But I say there is sometimes no other way.

Dragon Stage Update 10/20/2015 (Jash's Dragon Army)

Adopt one today!
This will be a brutal dragon for my lovely dragon army!

If you would like to help raise this dragon egg you can:

Avatarless (Jash's Dragon Army)

Adopt one today!
This dragon has been named: Avatarless by me as no one decided to name her. She is so named due to her lineage on Dragon Cave. There was a chance that she could've become an Avatar of Destruction instead of a Black Dragon.

The bio I have planned for her is:

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.

The Lover in Me 3

"No! No! No!" Elfangor shouted at two of his trainees.

In short order RachelBerenson and JakeBerenson were tangled up in each other. Rachel had seemed to be winning at first, which was impressive. She was the smaller of the two but, I guess, her berserker courage helped her face larger opponents.

I was watching a short distance away, sipping at some Amaranth Tea. It was a favorite of Jademoon's and he had allowed me to have some. I don't like tea but it was cold outside and the tea helped me to stay warm.

At the Source (MartinBedell's Journal)

I am at a comfortable place on a small hill. I have been sunbathing here since a battle has been announced. The Talonok, one of our allies, have been harassed by the Arcane Flight recently. I didn't really care about them, but that's one thing about keeping allies: sometimes you have to do things that you don't really care about. So all I had now to do was wait until Elfangor called some of the warriors to participate in the upcoming battle.

I hoped I would be chosen.

A short distance away the assassins are training. Jash, head of the Assassin's Department, is leading Kali and Cameron. Right now they are running and being questioned on the different deities.

I hear some questions about the Tidelord and wait to see when one of them will attack the other. Jash liked to keep her charges on constant guard, their minds focused on different things, to better enact real life scenarios. That's one thing I liked about her: she didn't ease up on the training.

Jash Reads: Mockingjay (Intro)

I talk about my readthrough of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.

All Hail the Shadowbinder l EP 7 l Riot of Triggers

I give my opinions on how trigger warnings are used nowadays, update about my dragons, and battle.

Cameron (Table of Contents)

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

Many people seem to think that I don't have emotions, but I do. It's just difficult for me to understand and feel them. I can feel love, hate, and all the other emotions. I do try my best to feel them. I originally came to the clan as a hatchling and tried to kill MartinBedell. After failing, I was allowed into the clan. I now feel very protective of the dragon I once set out to kill.

Below are my journal entries:

Z Nation "Batch 47" Review

I talk about the Z Nation episode "Batch 47".

Character Development in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Everyone goes through changes. But since I can't talk about everyone, I only talk about three people in the series.

Upcoming Dragon Giveaway (Jash's Dragon Army)

Another dragon giveaway from me is coming up and I'm giving you a heads up again. Like normal I will be giving away eggs from my Dragon Cave account (found HERE).

I can't tell you when the giveaway will be as I don't have an exact date. But expect it to happen within a week or so.

Below I will list what dragon eggs I'm thinking of giving away this time.

But first I'll give you two reminders:

1.) Every Breeding Isn't Successful
Sometimes dragons breed with no egg produced or the egg produced isn't the one I wanted. This isn't something that I can control.

2.) I Will Only Be Giving Away Five Eggs
So no matter how successful the breedings go, I will only be giving away five eggs.

Now onto the eggs I plan to give away this time:

The Lover in Me 2

"You can go now." I told the Fae.

It was a stormy night tonight, loud thunder and heavy rains. Unlike a good majority of the clan, I had a hut to help keep dry. All department heads tended to have their own hut while the others stayed outside. I didn't go into my hut when I could avoid it as I enjoyed being one with nature.

I had performed a spell so little flames of light floated around the hut, giving me the ability to read my scrolls. The scrolls that helped me plan breeding projects.

It's a Killer (Jash's Journal)

I turn around sharply as I hear a noise. I sigh as I watch MartinBedell put on an act of being in utter pain. His large Ridgeback body falls clumsily to the ground. He plays around with Cameron, the newest hatchling to the clan, with a grin on his face.

They get along fine, I must admit. More than fine, if I wanted to accept the fact.

I hold back a chuckle as Elfangor jumps in fright as the young Skydancer 'protects' Marty. The Mirror quickly goes away leaving me to watch the duo in secret.

I didn't agree with keeping Cameron in the clan. It had nothing to do with how close she was to Marty, she was merely a hatchling and romantic feelings wouldn't form between the two until she was older. Birchurawkp was one of the few clan members that believed in dragons avoiding possible future mates when the other was a hatchling.

Marty didn't share the same viewpoint.

What it had to do with was the fact that Cameron originally came into the clan to murder Marty.

Inbetween: Akin to the Platypus 6

The Lover in Me 1

The weather had been getting chilly as of late and I was very glad that my cape was here to protect me from the cold. I turned to look at Metis who was growing her winter coat. Right now she seemed to be a black cloud and I knew that it was only a matter of time before her shape would seem to disappear amongst her fur.

"Who are the next three breeding pairs?" Metis asked, turning to look at me.

The Lover in Me (Table of Contents)

Birchurawkp has been denying their feelings for Elfangor for a long time. But when their clanmates bring up the fact that Birch hasn't allowed Elfangor to breed yet, they find themselves struggling even harder than before.
