.: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.

I wrote it down
In the winter of 1610,
Just a secret under
Lock and key until then.
While collecting the stars,
I connected the dots.
I don’t know who I am,
But now I know who I’m not.
I’m just a curious speck
That got caught up in orbit.
Like a magnet it beckoned
My metals toward it.

Make my messes matter,
Make this chaos count,
Let every little fracture in me
Shatter out loud.

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:

Sometimes we just need a little reminder that we are brave and we can fly.

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

One, don't pick up the phone
You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone
Two, don't let him in
You have to kick him out again
Three, don't be his friend
You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning
And if you're under him
You ain't getting over him

Congrats Middy and Kylo!

Leading straight to hell
Like any other drifter
With a soul to sell

You know I'm dealing with the devil
In everyone I meet
And their faces tell a story
That life ain't so sweet

!!! 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!

What I love is
What I love is to hear you talk
Coming straight from the heart
Though you can't hardly walk
Nearly midnight
Honey for heaven's sake
Nearly midnight
Honey for heaven's sake

We're barely getting started here
It's almost time to go
Will time stand still
If loving you
Is all that I know?
