oKAY SO as you may or may not know, I'm an off and on participant in the dragonriders of pern fandom which is known for being v small and basically a constant bomb of drama ready to go off every time someone makes a site

however, I fucking love the dragons and the best part of being in the fandom is the hatchings when an admin writes up a dragon, made solely for your character and it's given to you and it's the best

and as it turns out, I'm not too bad at writing these for other characters!

so here's a quick rundown: you give me a character of yours and I will, given some allowance of time, write a dragon meant to match, complement or contrast them. there are different types of dragons and in canon they're... rather contentious so I'm just going to... ignore the more specific rules there. I'm going to go by the system of my own pern site, oowamid, and classify dragons by castes which roughly correspond to hierarchy, size, build and typical roles.

they start with queen at the top - matriarchs, the largest dragons who also have the ability to hold sway and command all the rest with strength of will. then kings, not capable of that same command but big and strong and often ambitious as fuck. the officers, also male, are the middle-weights, more streamlined and capable of speed as much as endurance, and often hold leadership positions based on efficiency and merit alone. the male knights and the female soldiers are the most numerous of the castes - slim, speedy, agile but lacking in stamina. there are also sport dragons who differ from the castes and who fall outside of that general hierarchy (don't ask why sport is the True Term for them, it's ingrained in the fandom I think)

all dragon names end in -th, they bond empathically and telepathically to their person - who is unequivocally theirs, basically a specific soulmate they were essentially born to be with.

idk there's probably a lot more detail I've skimmed or neglected to mention just because I'm so used to pern, so if you guys have any questions, just ask! I'll be putting up a dragon I did some time ago as an example of what I'm making such a big fuss about

also if you want to try this out for yourself, the only characters I'll refrain from making these for is my own roster so like, if you feel like it, you can do that??? mainly because ren wrote me a dragon once and it was amazing bUT YEAH ANYWAYS let's do this shit

okay so! I have been having major problems with enthusiasm and muse basically... everywhere which has been bothering me a ton

rping is my main hobby and not having the enthusiasm to do it and actually look forward to it for more than brief bursts of excitement really sucks. I've been tryng to just work at it and hope that would make it go away eventually buuuut that hasn't worked out so well! so I'm going to go in the other direction and go on hiatus for a bit and see if taking a break refreshes me a bit

so yeah I only plan to be gone for a week or two and I might still hang around the cbox??? idk that's not definite since I might feel weird about hanging around with no intentions of rping sO. regardless, most of you guys have my aim/skype/gtalk and tumblr shit so I won't be completely gone or anything. I just think this is kind of necessary for me to enjoy writing with everyone again idk.

<td><div class="badbloodbasic">APP. OKAMI. CHAOTIC GOOD.</div>

<div class="badbloodreq">
goddess of the sun and mother to the land of Nippon, amaterasu - or ammy for short - is surprisingly irreverent and reckless for a deity. limited by her form as a wolf, she's shortsighted and excitable, pursuing the goal right in front of her nose rather than any longterm plans. despite this, she's a stalwart ally and easily provoked to defend those who need it. she's also a sucker for getting scratched behind her ears, divine dignity be damned. she roams pretty much all over the place in search of food, adventure and people to look after, but her home as such is the calm lands. the chocobos like her, when she's not chasing them around or teasing them.
<p>
as a god, her form varies - those with faith or who already know what she is can see her, markings and all, while others might only see a white wolf - or even a dog. it's up to player discretion, really.
<p>

while there, she's made friends with aya, who is not only as devoted to protecting this world as she is but also can actually understand her. she's also made the acquaintance of aerith, both personally and online - though typing's a little difficult for paws - and is currently embarked on the task of exploring the corrupted isle with serge. if nothing else, he's more talkative than she is, and she fully intends to see them both safely back to the main land. her old enemy, yami has shown itself and taken up residence in the world - and worried about its presence, she's gone to aerith for help.<p>

<div class="badbloodname">ANISE TATLIN</div></td>

<td><div class="badbloodbasic">APP. TALES OF THE ABYSS. CHAOTIC GOOD.</div>

<div class="badbloodreq">
former fon master guard and fon master in training, anise isn't anyone's idea of either an adequate bodyguard or a religious leader. however, for all that she's a kid, and behind all the cute smiles and insistence on being a ~frail damsel~, she's actually resilient and cynical, with a sharp tongue and an almost unnerving nonchalance when it comes to violence. she's undeniably a child soldier, but hey, you've gotta do what you can to stay afloat, right? while she cares a great deal about money - a leftover of her past life - she's got a good heart, and is quick to involve herself when someone's in trouble. she lives in ikebukuro but she's used enough to travelling to range pretty far - especially when visiting friends.<p>

while she's been a little cautious in making solid friends, nevertheless anise has found a firm friend - and something of a role model, though she's not going to admit that aloud - in rocma. she's just strong and tough and really cool! she's also getting along quite nicely with wadanohara, and they've set out to explore (and maybe hunt for treasure) in the sea of stars.<p>

<div class="badbloodname">HAO ASAKURA</div></td>

<td><div class="badbloodbasic">APP. SHAMAN KING. NEUTRAL EVIL.</div>

<div class="badbloodreq">
the most recently crowned shaman king and thus the god of his world, hao is... a huge dick. let's just get that out of the way. arrogant, obsessive and really pissed off about losing his godhood, he hides his intensity under a layer of smug, careless nonchalance. he carries the burden of reishi, uncontrolled mindreading, and it's made him distant, lonely and undeniably corrupted by hatred. still, he's not entirely awful, and he has a clear soft spot for animals - and on occasion, people he can empathize with. howver, he has no intention of carving out a new life for himself - his sole intention is to influence this world with his will until it is his, and regain his rightful place.<p>

hao doesn't give a shit about people, and hasn't exactly made many attempts to meet anyone - but he can't deny establishing a connection with psyche. after all, they understand each other, sharing similar burdens and powers - though with the caveat that while her mind is closed to him, she can read his emotions just fine. saix and envy have both caught his attention - by being threats to the one person he likes - and he's also recently met yuna in the farplane.<p>
