I haven't got a clue what I did this weekend. I know we went to fa_dolls and edgedancer's place and had delicious vindaloo. I know we went shopping for Barb's mom. But on the whole....? Mostly I did some reading; otherwise, I just now caught up with three days of my friend's list (and I'm assuming I missed some things, but other than individually clicking on each friend and reading all their posts, I believe that it happens - I often find out when I do that there are posts that never made it to my full friends page).

ANYWAY... I'm feeling down because in the reading I found someone I never knew, but who was friends to several other friends passed away over the weekend; condolences to all who knew her. I never did, and it is, indeed, my loss. I shall drink a toast to her, nevertheless. A friend of my friends.

I got over my "I'm never, ever, EVER going to write again" phase, as I hoped I might.

And my babies are probably going to die, too (like poor ishte's did). Ah, well. They're just cartoon dragons, right?


Gallifrey:

Adopt one today!

Phrick & Phrack:

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

And last, but not least, Pequeno Verde:

Adopt one today!

Mot of my friends, except poor ishte, have gotten all their babies to maturity, although nutmeg3 has a brand-new eggie from mating some of her new grownups together, so click away!

And yes, I'll probably adopt again. I still want a blue or a white one!

Wow, they ALL grew up while I was at work (and I bred Ruichi to Gallifrey: Adopt one today! But it's just going to be another purple, like her mother.

Shame the paper dragon is unbreedable; I still think he's nifty.

yeah i tried to breed mine and they refused and the option has disappeared!

I was going to breed paper to stone but yes sadly Kami is a eunuch

Weird. When I bred Ruichi to Gallifrey they produced an egg right away.

and ELD's white one keeps getting the breed option back but she's turned down all ELD's males...

I've clickied. I don't understand the system or why ishte's died (I went to click on everyone's when I saw your post), because it seemed to have plenty of clicks. And I really want poor little Pequeno Verde (I know: little + pequeno = redundant) to be OK.

Hurray for the urge to write returning, and thank you for the condolences.

Look! You has growed-up dragonses! And they're all boys! Which means you can do lots of breeding!

Glee!!! I just had to name him Pequeno Verde! *g*

And they've already started: Adopt one today!

I don't know why Ishte's died, either. They seemed to be doing all right, last I'd checked on them.

I've been clicking your new egg, too!

I have clickethed the egg. And thank you for clicking mine.

Well, I don't know about losing them. I clicked on Gallifrey & he just grew up. There may be hope for the others yet.....
wildrider

Yep, they're all grown up now! Once they get their wings (whathaveyou) they seem to grow very quickly. I've even bred Gallifrey with Ruichi: Adopt one today!

It's all your fault, you know. *g*

I suppose I should, I'm just TERRIBLE at keeping up with more than one bulletin board. I forget about my country music one all the time (and I'm supposed to be one of the moderators).

Actually, I just added your kids to my daily post up at that community. I'll do that sometimes, if I see a friend's dragons who need a boost.

(My friend Jean refers to me as her dragons' Aunty Mel.)

Then I probably have you to thank for my boys growing up so fast today! Thanks!!!

Well, as you said, your involvement in the Dragon Breeding program is all my fault. I couldn't leave you with headstones on your scroll, now could I?

Not sure why ishte's dragons died. It looks like they still had a day or two lwft when it happened. And they didn't have more clicks than views. (Though there does seem to be something important about the ratio of clicks/views/unique views. Did they have Soft Shell Syndrome before they passed on? There may have been too many views happening too fast --though that usually affects eggs & dragonets on their first day or two, not so close to maturity. I wish I'd been paying more attention.

*grin*

I really don't know what happened - they were fine the last time I'd looked at them, and then, WHAM! Gone.

Of course, most of us are flying by the seat of our britches and really don't know how this thing works, anyway. We just love the cute li'l dragons.

He is cute, isn't he? I wonder what he'd end up breeding...

(I may have to play a little...)

he'll probably get ignored poor little guy
wildrider

So far, yes. I may try him with Arialla - she's smaller and closer to his size. He may be waiting for a female mint dragon, though.

So far my Mint dragons have bred 5 mint eggs, one magi (orange) egg & one skywing (blue with swirls) egg. So it seems they're pretty good at mixing & mingling.

Apparently, the paper dragons, dinosaurs & chickens don't breed at all. The two-headed dragons only breed with each other. And all the other dragons are able to interbreed. Though you have three potential results for breeding attempts. Either they won't mate, they'll mate but not produce eggs, or you get a clutch of up to 4 eggs --only one of which you're allowed to keep. And the same two dragons may have different results each time you try to breed them. (I think that's pretty random.)

Good luck!

Interesting! I'll try again in a bit - but I want to try and catch a blue or a white egg to give some variety to my gang.

I actually have a couple of blue dragonets I'm about to cut loose, since they aren't the gender I want. Interested in trying to pick one up?
wildrider
Aug. 7th, 2008 02:40 am (UTC)
Sure, how do we do that? (Are they the ones with little clouds "you can't seem to find the dragon you're looking for" on your scroll?)


melvh
Aug. 7th, 2008 02:45 am (UTC)
Yup. That's them. I wanted to keep them from growing up until I found someone who wanted them. As for how we can do this, I "abandon" the dragon & you pick it up from the "Get Dragon" page. Timing is essential, so it's easiest to do this with an IM. You have a chat program?

I don't know if I do (used to, on the old computer, but never used it, so never bothered to re-install). Darn.

Gallifrey already has an egg.

Yes, I did that at work, where I can get to the Dragon Cave, but not to LiveJournal (until they figure out it's a waste of time, I suspect... *g*).
