.:Holiday Wish-a-Thon 2017:.

Postby Kyrit » 12/01/2017 1:18 PM

The holidays are drawing near, and maybe a few have even started depending on your religion. Here on Evelon we have a long running tradition of spreading holiday cheer throughout the month of December in many ways. The holiday wish-a-thon was started by our loving leader, Baal, and after her "retirement" was passed on to the mods when they wished to continue it. Yet again we bring you the wish-a-thon in hopes of fulfilling many a dream. Remember though! Only active members are visited by any of Santa Baal's helpers. They usually like to see members roleplaying and pick from them for their gifts.

So what are these gifts? Well, they can be just about anything. Retired pets, keystones, that special pet you missed last Christmas, a custom, or even items or a breeding room. Naturally there are some customs we are unable to fulfill, but most things are possible. The more active you are(And I don't mean in the posting games) the more likely you may be to catch our eyes. So buckle up Evelon and get those wishlists updated, for hopefully the wish-a-thon will start kicking out gifts probably around the 5th.





Ohana means family.
Family means nobody gets left behind, or forgotten.
Even as a pirate, I understand that.
You, my family, are my greatest treasure .
I won't let that be stolen.

Right on schedule, this time around! Good afternoon, everyone! I wanted to start things off strong and particularly scaly on this first day of the Wish-a-Thon~

Image

I've always found it to be an honor to make memorial pets for people, even if I'm not the one designing them--this lovely Paragon is going to Middy, in memory of her adorable tegu Lizzie.
In the morning when I wake,
And the sun is coming through,
Oh, you fill my lungs with sweetness,
And you fill my head with you.

Shall I write it in a letter?
Shall I try to get it down?
Oh, you fill my head with pieces
Of a song I can't get out.

Can I take it to a morning
Where the fields are painted gold,
And the trees are filled with memories
Of the feelings never told?

When the evening pulls the sun down,
And the day is almost through,
Oh, the whole world it is sleeping,
But my world is you.


Can I be close to you?

Congrats, Middy! What an amazing and sentimental gift! Lizzie looks beautiful memorialized in Paragon form. <3
.
... . . . . . . . . .Am I made of paper, 'cause I tear so easily?
Am I made of vapor, because I disappear?
Do I have to have a reason for anything I feel?
Just be glad I'm real, glad I'm real
Am I real?

Are you made of lead paint, a bulletproof Picasso?
All the virgin saints put you here to care for me
You don't need to sell me on anything at all
Just say what you mean and mean what you say to me

Did you ever see the waves break into a million pieces?
Or stay awake with someone who was dying?
You don't have to tell me anything at all
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..I'm just glad you're here, glad you're real
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Are you real?

I honestly feel like crying right now. I missed Lizzie ever since her passing, and to have her memorialized here too makes me feel so sentimental and sad but... very very happy too. Thank you so much Zap, this means so much to me. I miss her so much, but now I can have something else to remember her by.

Having a giant dog-like lizard for almost 11 years can really break a herp-lover when they die. I... thank you so much <3

I wait to surface
Above these bellowed growls
To sweep the shallows of utopia
I am the anchor
And the rope around your feet
In a river deep I hold you down
Ive come to stage your abdication
Im the creation of your sins
Embrace me

Aw, memorial pets are always lovely to see. I got my one from a Wish-a-Thon a few years back. Congrats Middy! She's so pretty. c:

Well, I found a man
Stronger than anyone I know
He shares my dreams
I hope that someday we'll share a home
I found a love
To carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children
Of our own

What better gift on a cold winter day than something fluffy to keep you warm? Turns out Kylo was wishing for a Swift Fenling, and we're happy to deliver!

Congrats, Middy and Kylo! :D

I am not as fine as I seem
Pardon, me for yelling and telling you green gardens
Are not what's growing in my psyche, it's a different me
A difficult beast feasting on burnt down trees
Freeze frame, please let me paint a mental picture portrait
Something you won't forget, it's all about my forehead
And how it is a door that holds back contents
That makes Pandora's box contents look non-violent
Behind my eyelids are islands of violence
My mind ship-wrecked this is the only land my mind could find
I did not know it was such a violent island
Full of tidal waves, suicidal crazed lions
They're trying to eat me, blood running down their chin
And I know that I can fight, or I can let the lion win
I begin to assemble what weapons I can find
'Cause sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind

!!! This is very exciting because the birthday pets came out too late in the Year of the Snake for me to get one of these, and being a rat baby myself I can't take one as my regular zodiac pet. Thank you!

I'm not a gangster tonight
Don't wanna be a bad guy
I'm just a loner, baby
And now you've gotten in my way

I can't decide whether you should live or die
Oh you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why my heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride
