Merry Evelonian Christmas, everyone!

With this last day of the Wish-a-Thon, once more, we're handing out our gifts for Staff Secret Santa! And it is my honor to announce Omnisearch as one of today's winners!

(I am your Secret Santa, lady, and I hope you like your gift!)


Omni, this adorable Snowball was something straight from your wish list, but I seriously debated on whether or not to gift it to you, or choose something, perhaps, more complicated. Yet, I was drawn to it, particularly, because of what it's based on. So, hey, since we both fall under the umbrella here, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to be the one to gift it to you! <3

I hope I made the right choice and that you love it!

Stay amazing, keep on fighting the good fight, and I hope you have a wonderful new year!

Oh hey, I have a Snowball to give too : D

To continue the Staff Secret Santa, I'd like to present this gift to Kreepy! I saw that you wanted a pet based on a certain someone in your wishlist, and it just so happened I got into the game that someone is from earlier this year. I don't think we've played together yet, but I'd be up for it if you ever are!
I hope you like it, and I hope you have a "Gnarly" New Year! ; D

Baal, will you accept my undying love for you? C= The friendship kind of course. After all, I don't want to be trampled by Moofie. Seriously though, thanks for always being an awesome friend!

I tried making a Mercy 'Gon but gave up because I'm a quitter, so have Undyne instead

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.

Gnaaaaaaaar gada!

But aaaah thank you Thunder! I loved Gnar from the moment I saw his teaser trailer and he's definitely one of my more comfortable champions (<3 top lane tanks 5ever) so yeah! Thank you so much c: It's adorable.

And my Secret Santa was Silverin. And I've recieved her a few times over the years and I've always wanted to make a specific Monster Hunter creature for her, but I've never worked out just quite how to pull it off. But then when I was watching Baal make the paragon head revamps and we were talking about how you might be able to make a Gravios out of a Deserthorn, an idea clicked.
So here's an Amatsumagatsuchi 'Gon for you! Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

And for the rest of Evelon, I have vocalised how great you guys are before but seriously. Keep at it, I love you all. You make all time I put into this website worth it and I appreciate each and every one of you. I'm hoping 2017 is a good year for you all <3

Here I am, there you are
Don't wanna stop
I know you know it, I can feel it
All the tension rising up
So much it hurts
We're saying more than words

Aaaaaaaaa, thank you so much for the gift! Like Skeetzy, life has been so hectic that I wasn't even expecting anything this year, haha. ;; It means a lot to me. +1 to my wonderful Kitrell collection. I'll take good care of the new little guy. <3

And congrats to everyone else for their gifts! Don't have time tonight to comment on everyone's, but I've spotted some really nice catches this year. c: Happy holidays guys! Let's make the best out of this upcoming year.

A beautiful moon shines above again tonight,
And it sheds light happily over the world.
As for me, I'm just worthless, good for nothing,
Dreaming at daybreak, creeping at dawn.

Still I'll scream into the sky, hoping that somebody will find me.
I want to run, but there's no way out--
No bright future in sight.
But I still fly up like a butterfly, hoping that you'll find me.
A crescent moon, ugly children of the stars, flying with broken wings...!

My Secret Santa giftee was ToxicShadow. I'm not art staff and don't own a tablet, but I hope this gift brings you lots of new years cheer anyway.


Talking with you this year, making plots and RPing them out, was definitely one of the highlights of the year for me. <3 Thank you so much for helping keep me sane through a year with my gremlins, and for always being my night timezone buddy. I don't think I talked to anyone as much as you this year, partially because of that. Here's hoping your 2017 is fantastic. I'm wishing for good health for you too! Watch out for them colds!

I know I haven't been super... present this holiday season (things got so, so hectic IRL; I literally go back to work tomorrow morning at 9). I haven't even sent out proper thank-you notes or personalized gift messages or anything, but just know that I love all of you guys. <3 <3 <3 Happy new years!!

I'm only honest when it rains.
If I time it right, the thunder breaks
When I open my mouth.
I want to love you but I don't know how.

Such amazingly beautiful gifts!! I'm late in saying this but congratulations to everyone ahhh I love seeing the great things everyone receives during the Wish-a-Thon. ;v; <3
You're a door-without-a-key,
A field-without-a-fence.
You made a holy fool of me,
And I've thanked you ever since.
If she comes circling back,
We'll end where we'd begun,
Like two pennies on the train track
The train crushed into one,
Or if I'm a crown without a king,
If I'm a broken open seed,
If I come without a thing,
Then I come with all I need.
No boat out in the blue,
No place to rest your head
The trap I set for you seems to have
Caught my leg instead.

I do not exist. I do not exist. I do not exist.

:'v Hello all. It's been a while since I've shown my face around these here parts. Silverin and I were included in the staff secret santa, so here I am.

I've already thanked Toxic in PMs, but I'm super stoked to have that Snowball! A few of the customs on my Wishlist are based on facets of me, so I'm happy to get any of them! This Snowball here is based on asexual colors, from a few labels under the umbrella. :>

And now, for my gift... I'm not gonna lie, I was super stoked when I saw who I got. The gal I get to spoil here tonight is...

I guess it's kinda cliche, but I really wanted to give you something that came from me. So it's not a critter from your Wishlist at all, but hopefully you'll like this little guy! He's based on a Mandarin Duck! And I chose to make a pet based on a duck because they're associated symbols like longevity, emotional and psychological support... things that you gave me for the past years, but especially for this past one of 2016.

I have the tendency to end up pushing people away from me, whether willingly or by just being... well, me. And the thing is that I can be aggressive and say things I shouldn't say. And this year sure was full of those times, towards a lot of people and towards you. And I was scared I'd pushed even you away.

And yet here we are, still super close, still BFFs. My paranoia and my insecurities do their best to make me believe that people will never forget and that they'll grow resentful towards me, and that they'll stop talking to me. And despite it all, you're still here with me.

You're my special friend out there, my waifu, my zucchini. I appreciate everything you do for and with me, and I wanted this little critter to represent exactly that. <3

Happy New Year my girl, and to everyone else! I hope 2017 will be a better year for everyone and everything!

LOL he looks beautiful Kreepy ;3; I actually had the idea cross my mind last night as well. I could bap his nose if I was not afraid of getting a tail swipe.
Speaking of Monster Hunting... :U;;


Merry Christnew year Kyrit! I know its been a rough year for you around the end and I really hope things look up for you in the future. Hope you like her!

To all you fellow users out there I hope you guys have had a good holiday season and that the new year works in your guy's favor! I wish I could gift you all some how but not sure if that is entirely possible. I can dream though right?

There are better folks to gift.

Best. Pun. Ever. Kyrit. <3

I love ittttttt. Also everyone's so freaking cute. And I'm so freaking behind. BUT.


Well I mean it's probably obvious now since everyone's gone, but my gift goes to crow, who's been my super secret cute little bug buddy, since she's always sending me AWESOME photos of the coolest insects straight from South Korea. So awesome. 8'D And while I would have made you a little bug custom, I feel like you would have appreciated this guy a little more. c": <333

Merry late Xmas and Happy New Year, to you and to everyone! 8D


Also one little last thing, the modmin and mod staff, including our retired mods, each get not one, but two LB teeth this year. Poor LB, he's gonna be toothless some day. xD Thank you guys as always for all the hard work and for continuing to stick around! I appreciate everyone's time and effort you always put in without even my direction, and you guys are always inspiring me to keep doing stuff from the shadows to help Evelon out. O BO <333

Thanks so much to everyone on the Lands as well. I love you all. 8'D~ <3333333333333
Well you can't get what you want,
But you can get me,
So let's set out to sea,
'Cause you are my medicine,
When you're close to me.

When you're close to me

A little late on the reply- as always- but congratulations everyone! I really enjoyed seeing everyone's pretty new pets and customs! (So gorgeous! ;O;)

Also thanks for my gift! I didn't have a wishlist, (its been sitting in my drafts for god only knows how long) but I was going to buy one of the Christmas gifts anyways. It all worked out I guess! I keep impatiently waiting for it to open! I wanna know what is in it! xD

Oh my Lord take this hand,
save me from the gallows.
Hear this news, bear my gold
lay me in the shallows.
Evil will come if you call my name,
the wicked day shall rise.
The river's sins gonna wash me clean,
the river don't run dry.
