I Don't See Anything Giveaway (Jash's Dragon Army)

Update: This giveaway is over. I want to thank everyone who participated here. If you can't wait until next giveaway you can go to the Dragon Cave Forums where people will trade and give away eggs. I am also more than willing to breed upon request.

If you would like to learn more about my dragon army you can go HERE. It is constantly evolving and I would love your input on how it is progressing so far.

While the giveaway is over, feel free to discuss Westworld. Oh, if you want to buy the theme to Westworld and help support this blog, merely buy the music via the ad on the bottom of this post.

Westworld is a sci-fi show about robots, the wild west, and understanding what it means to be human. It is a show full of mystery that is highly addictive. There are little clues spelling out that the show is more complicated than we think. If you're worried about needing to watch the original film, don't be. You don't need to watch it to be able to understand the show.

I am writing this a week or so before the actual giveaway so I'm afraid of saying something that is proven to be wrong. Ford might be revealed as a Host by the time I post this. Or it might be revealed that this show doesn't take place on Earth.

There are so many things that could happen!

Figuring my blog readers should get something that I can actually give away.

If you don't already have a Dragon Cave account, you can sign up for one if raising dragons interests you. If you already have an account, pick an egg at will. If you don't have an account and don't want one, please share this with a friend that does.

Here are the eggs this time around:

Crossing the Divide 18

A Queensguard held a cup of tea, steam coming off of it indicating it was freshly made. I shivered as I recognized it although the knowledge was hidden in the darkness of my time in the direwolf pack. The man was holding moon tea, also known as tansy tea, which was used to either prevent or abort pregnancies. My stomach had already begun to bulge and killing my child now...no...no. Not this. Anything but this.

"As a mother it is beyond painful to lose a child." Cersei said. "You have mocked my losses and so I shall make you have one of your own."

"I didn't choose to have this child." I said, sounding more confident than I felt. "You chose to have your children, I didn't."

I hated my sensitive nose as it picked up tansy, mint, wormwood, honey, and pennyroyal. I was able to pick up how they mixed into each other and how much there was of each ingredient. I wanted to vomit and curse my sense of smell. A sense that, at any other time, would be a huge benefit to myself and those I allied myself with. Now my sense of smell helped better foretell the doom that would soon fall upon me.

"It doesn't matter how you had your child." The Lannister said, a cold grin on her face. "What matters is that mothers like you will have an innate sense to protect it. Weak mothers that seek only to protect the innocent. You'll cry over your dead bastard because you care too much. But you don't have to let your unborn child suffer that fate. I will let you keep the child if you simply answer some questions."

If I wanted to I could easily push away the cup and the plan would have been for naught. Of course that wasn't true as she could always weaken me and then give me the moon tea. She wanted me to commit the deed and so she would wait until I drank. Any torture she did to me that resulted in the death of the bastard would be blamed on me and she knew it. There was no way out for me and yet my mind raced to figure something out. The majority of escape plans weren't possible as I would be trading my bastard for Jeor. One life for another. Alex or Alec. The cycle kept on repeating itself. An endless loop of pain and agony. House Kaari's symbol made more sense than it should have. I managed not to shiver at my revelation.

I could agree to Cersei's demand and not have to give up any child. I could let both of them live. Bronn would never be referred to as the child's father as I wanted to get far away from him when this was over. He had been kind to me but f***ing him to keep safe was already giving me nightmares. I woke up in the middle of the night at times shivering at dreams where Jorah left me because of my disloyalty to him. What did he want me to do?

At those times the only thing I could keep comfort in was Bronn's words about Jorah being a fool to leave me. He worded it to be about f***ing, but at least it was something. At least there was someone comforting me. He wasn't here now and neither was Jorah. The latter I trusted to give me good advice on what to do. I didn't want to give up either and yet...it wasn't really about bartering my children. It was about bartering Jorah, Daenerys, and all those I had met in Essos. It was about bartering for who could win the war. The death of my unborn child would devastate me and yet there would be more that would die if he would live. If Daenerys died then Jorah would never be the same. If he found out that she had died because of me...I would never share his bed again. He would try to kill me if love for me had fully left his heart. My husband's life and love being gone from me was something that I could never let happen.

"You're more heartless than I thought." Cersei said. "I didn't think it would take you this long."

Crossing the Divide 17

"If the clone gets out and causes chaos, kill her." I said. "But as long as she won't harm anyone, let her be. Besides, do you really think that this will have a good outcome for you? You don't fight people like her unless you have to. She is more than dangerous and you will most likely die."

"We fought many of her recently." The man said. "We can take care of one."

"The attack was won because Alice thought she had landed a major victory. If she knew what to attack you would be dead by now."

"So we're to roll over when she's even mentioned?"

"I am going to train the best Mormonts to fight her if need be. I'm not going to be the only one able to defeat her, that would be unfair to you and unwise."

"Let me help."

The anger in his eyes had turned sad and pleading. I wouldn't be moved, though, as he had shown himself as disobedient. My special forces, which the humans would need a name for later, needed to be loyal to me. I couldn't train just anyone in ways to kill me as those wanting me dead would have too much information. Accepting this man now would help keep the peace here but have me lose the greater war in the long run. The room was tense as everyone waited to hear my answer. Only K-Mart could guess my reply with any certainty.

"Why would I accept you?" I asked him and was greeted with a look of shock. "You can't follow a basic command and you want me to accept you? My special forces can't just be able to fight well, they also have to show their loyalty. They have to show that they can obey my commands."

"And you're the only one to decide?" He asked weakly.

"No," K-Mart chimed in. "Isaacs tasked me with looking for the best fighters. I found twenty but now I have to recount. You are a good fighter but our leader is right, you can't just fight well you have to know when to obey. I've heard Khaleesi talk about sparring with Isaacs and...it's more advanced than anything she does with the rest of us. She doesn't just need your abilities, she needs your loyalty."

Why Viserion Becoming an Ice Dragon Would Be Cool

I have wanted to write this post for some time but have waited. I don't want to stress myself out too much and pacing becomes everything to keep a blog like this running for years.

Anyways...part of the leaked plot of Game of Thrones Season 7 is that Viserion becomes an ice dragon and is ridden by the Night's King. Now the fact is that this could merely be rumors and this won't actually end up happening. So I wouldn't count this as a spoiler as it's in a state of being true and not being true.

In this post I'm not going to focus on how he becomes an ice dragon according to the leaks, but the implications of it happening. I find that to be the more interesting part.

Travels of Artictress: Tobias of the Johto Region Entry #5 (HeartGold)

Entry #5 An Epic Chase

So...I might have wasted a lot of energy chasing after some legendaries. I can't recall their names, just that I ran into one once and then became obsessed with chasing them down. I would go all across the Johto Region just for a glimpse at one. Figuring I needed to trap them from getting away, I tried to make one fall asleep...that didn't work.

The bad part of that was I didn't train my Pokemon as quickly as I should've. I could have spent endless days and nights finding the best places but I didn't. I spent my time trying to capture Pokemon I have no chance at getting right now. I felt useless each time one of them escaped and not even picking Apricorns could cheer me up.

Crossing the Divide 16

"The Queen is going to feed you." Lei said as she started cleaning my wounds.

"Because she wants me to have just enough fight in me to make the rape interesting for her men." I said, taking a bite out of the bread.

The woman didn't reply and I didn't question how she got her information. If she hadn't told me before I wasn't going to expect an answer. Maybe she had overheard something or maybe she had been sent by Jaime. Of course he wouldn't have alerted me if that was a case. He might still serve his sister, but he wouldn't let certain people die.

"But you'll be able to fight them off." Lei said hopefully. "You've dealt with dragons. People...they must be easier."

"Each opponent always presents a new set of obstacles." I replied with a small smile, her confidence amusing me. "Just because I can tackle dragons doesn't mean I can do the same here. What is being done to me will affect how well I can fight. I might be able to defend myself one or two times but eventually I will be violated. Eventually one of the men will succeed."

There was a few more minutes of silence as she continued to help me. Her touch was gentle and sure as she healed me as much as she could. It wasn't the touch of a warrior but of a more gentler type. I had no thought but to continue to fight but I knew any world needed different kinds of people. There needed to be healers as well as fighters. The healers could heal the fighters and be more useful in times of peace. There also needed to be people obsessed with figuring out the world so knowledge could spread. My fate would never bring me to the life of Father, but I wouldn't think less of those who chose a path different than my own. Right now I needed Lei, even if she would betray me later.

"I am a survivor," I told her. "Even if my spirit and body are crushed, I will continue on. I will fight through my pain and endure as I always have."

"I just...I don't think anyone could." Lei replied sadly. "I know you can't see yourself but...you look like you're a few seconds away from death. I don't see you surviving this."

"Then why help someone doomed to die?"

Crossing the Divide 15

"You did the best you could." K-Mart told me as she looked out a window. "Alice just isn't ready to listen to reason yet."

"And what if she never does?" I asked her, aware of the others' eyes on me. "We might end this war with her dead. I'll have killed someone whose only wrong was being f****d over."

"Permission to speak freely, Isaacs." One of the men asked.

I had to hide a soft smile as this is why I didn't mind K-Mart speaking so frankly in front of me. Besides needing to be reassured, I wanted my fellow Mormonts to realize that Alice wasn't evil. That no matter the atrocities we committed against each other, I was willing to make peace with her. Umbrella and the zombies were enemies, not Alice. I wanted those under my command to be aware of that and not to demonize her for her actions.

"Permission granted." I replied with a slight nod of my head.

"You can't reason with some people." He said. "She has made her intentions against us very clear and so she is the enemy. You shouldn't debate whether or not she deserves it: it's you or her. And, frankly, I would rather you survive than the one trying to kill us."

"If only things were so clear. Just because you have to kill someone doesn't mean you should be happy or indifferent about it. You should realize the implications of your actions or you might just turn out like Wesker and his ilk."

A Queen Without a Kingdom (Daenerys' Journal)

Show Appreciation to the Artist HERE
The chill in the air made me wrap my body around Jorah more. It was a slightly odd arrangement as he was a Wildclaw and I was an Imperial, one of the largest breeds on Sornieth. But we made it work and I couldn't think of anyone else I'd rather be with than him. He cared for me and I for him. We seemed to be two dragons in one body at times.

Crossing the Divide 14

"This is where I stood as my enemies fell." Cersei said before I could reply. "The High Sparrow thought he could control me like he could control my son. It wouldn't surprise me if in his arrogance he stopped everyone from escaping. I should probably go to the Sept and thank him for that. He thought I would bow to him like a filthy commoner, he never imagined that I could beat him. Besides him I killed House Tyrell in one fell swoop. All my enemies thinking they could defeat me and yet here I am as Queen of the Seven Kingdoms."

"Yes, it's very lucky that your children died so you could sit on the throne." I said stoically, making my voice as steady as it could be right now. "Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen. I thought you brought me here so I could think on how you killed your last child. You were here gloating and abandoned Tommen at his time of need. How did it feel seeing his corpse? Did it make your victory all the more sweeter?"

Her response was how I imagined it. Her lips curled and she seemed about to lose control. For a moment I thought she would put her queenly duties behind her and lash out like the monster she was. But then she grew calmer and went to pick up her glass of wine. Slowly she picked it up and started to drink. I thought she did so to calm herself. My words had hurt her and I wondered what emotions were bubbling behind those eyes. Was it anger that I was stronger than she had imagined? Was it sadness of losing her child?

Animorphs is a series about a group of teenagers fighting off an alien menace. The series is near and dear to my heart so I decided to make a long quiz all about it. Each part will focus on different things relating to the series to help test your knowledge. I do not know how many parts I will make so keep on the lookout for future parts just in case. This part will be a sort of overview of the series. If you don't do good here...you may want to think about re-reading the series before continuing.

Weekly Update 11/14/2016

For those of you who are stopping by my blog for the first time and/or don't have a lot of time to keep up with my blog, this is for you.

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).

Crossing the Divide 13

"I'm feeling stuck here." Khaleesi said, sitting down on the couch. "I know I do an important job but I need to do something. I need to fight something. I don't know if I care at this point if I fight Umbrella or zombies. Maybe both."

"Alex will be going with me once the farming mission is underway." I told her, taking the seat beside her. "You could join that. It will be a long mission most likely."

"What about guarding the new base? I have her DNA and some of her memories. I know how she thinks and might be able to avoid a fight with her altogether."

My daughter did bring up a very good point. She was a clone of Alice, the only one that was loyal to me, and I should use that to my advantage. Alice, the real Alice, wasn't yet aware of her and wouldn't be expecting one of her own to betray her. But, at the same time, if two of the highest ranking Mormonts left Eden it wasn't good. We were the center of the organization and we shouldn't travel together. As long as Eden Base remained a secret we were all safe here. As safe as we could be, at least.

"K-Mart will be joining me." I told her. "I'm hoping that an agreement can be made and we won't have to fight each other. The girl was close to Alice and can use that to garner peace with her."

"I know you don't want to fight her." Khaleesi told me. "Trust me, I don't want to either. It's hard to think of her as someone else at times and if I had to make the choice to actually kill her...I don't know what I'd do. I think I would let her kill me because killing someone with my face...I couldn't do that. But you can't make peace with a woman who is feeling such rage. I feel that rage and it's only because I trust you that I haven't tried to kill you. Alex is proving himself and I trust that he will continue to because I believe in you. Alice doesn't know you like I do. She won't waste a moment to try and think about you two being allies."

Crossing the Divide 12

"If you answer questions now I will make sure the torture is much less intense." Cersei told me. "If you tell me her allies and her forces I can make your execution swift."

The darkness I saw in the woman before me made me doubt her. It all depended on how she wanted to let her rage out. I could tell her everything and yet the bloodlust in her could still need to be sated. I was aligned with House Targaryen, a member of the House myself by Daenerys' decree, and the Lannister queen might see me as representing Daenerys herself.

"I thought I would be meeting with King Tommen." I told her, hoping that the loss of her final child was a weak point for her. "I was surprised to see you on the throne and not him. It is a pity he isn't here as from what I heard he had been a good king. A kind one. What happened?"

As her grip on the throne tightened I worried I had crossed a line with Jaime. I wanted to exchange words with her, not him. I didn't mind torturing the queen by mocking her dead son, but Jaime was different. So far he had protected both my sword and my son. I had no reason yet to cause him harm. While I was guilty about involving him, I trusted him to know why he was being involved. We weren't allies or friends, any goodwill from earlier wasn't expected to last, and we both had to realize that.

"If he perished in the wildfire, you shouldn't feel guilty." I continued, my voice soft and comforting. "It isn't as through you caused the explosion yourself. Sometimes things happen and we must move on. I am sure you will be a strong queen with the short time that you are given."

"King Tommen saw the explosion and knew Queen Margaery had perished." Cersei replied and her voice struggled to remain calm. "In his sorrow he jumped out the window to join her in death. We still do not know who caused the explosion and that pains me as a mother should never have to lose one of her children."

Tommen had died because of events his mother had caused. It would not surprise me if she had felt her odds of winning her trial weren't good and so had made sure the problem was erased. Saving her own skin had cost her her final child's life. She did care for her children and now the guilt would eat at her. Or else it wouldn't as she would lose herself in her rage. It didn't matter to me which way she chose as my fate would remain unchanged.

"I've told you, figuring out exactly what happened to those men is grunt work. It's just clearing up a few things and changing how to work with the material."

"I nearly died in there. I could've easily gotten away but I saved those people. I need to understand what happened."

I put a hand on his shoulder and squeezed, waiting until he calmed down. My husband was not a fighter and didn't fully understand the fear that must still be pumping through his veins. A fear he would have to continue to endure until everything was put right again. And then...then I would leave him alone with only our child to keep him company. Or maybe children.

"Once everything is done, you can go over the findings." I told him.

"How do you do it?" He asked. "The fear is...how can you even think of others when you're put into positions like that?"

"I grew up having to accept that death could happen at any moment. That any peaceful moment could turn into a bloodbath. For me it's a part of the way life has always been, what it seems like it will always be."

"But I'm not like you. Not like any of the rest of the Mormonts."

I took one of his hands and placed it on my belly. It was far too early for even a hint of the bump that would form, but my husband took my meaning. I couldn't tell him that it would be easy or that one day he would walk into danger without a second thought. I couldn't tell him that one day he would become the most noble of men and would risk his life for the noblest of causes. All I could tell him was that there were some things worth fighting for and that he had two of his own: me and the child.

"What is this King Tommen like?" I asked and wondered if I could speak reason to him.

I did not expect him to easily let me go, not with his position and not with the benefits of keeping me imprisoned. I was the dragon trainer of Daenerys Targaryen and the wife of one of her most trusted advisors, not that Jaime knew that. Not yet and hopefully not until it was too late. The reason Jorah had left Westeros was because he had dishonored his House and had been fleeing execution. People wouldn't think highly of him. While they may think my queen trusted him, they probably wouldn't think he was her right hand.

"That little c***?" Bronn said with a laugh. "I don't think you can make a deal with him."

"Why?" I asked, hiding my nervousness.

"There's not much of him to bargain with. He's not really a king, more of a puppet. I'm out here with Jaime fu****g Lannister because Tommen Baratheon wanted him sent away. Right now he's the pawn of Faith of the Seven, right in the pocket of the High Sparrow."

"So I would have to convince the High Sparrow to let me go."

I had heard of the Faith of the Seven and didn't like what I had found out. They were a group of religious fanatics that imposed their will on others instead of allowing free will to reign. Throughout both Westeros and Essos I had learned about fanatics and that they were all the same in the end. They believed in something so fully and would discard any evidence to the contrary. They would scream and yell but in the end it was all done out of fear. It was through the group that they were able to hold themselves up. It didn't mean one was weak if one became a fanatic, but that they needed something to believe in. Tommen was young and susceptible to influences adults wouldn't be, but whether or not he was a fool wouldn't change my situation. He could change in a few years and by that time Daenerys would be seated on the Iron Throne.

"Which isn't something I could do." I said after a moment's pause. "Not to some fanatic."
