So, I had my last exam for uni today, and that pretty much marks the last thing for this year of my study, and indeed any year of my study, as I'm pretty much done with my politics course now. Assuming all goes well, all that's left is graduation, in July! So yay! Victory! :D

Stolen from SilverStarstruck 

And, as a thank you to all the folks who were patient with my lack of anything, as promised in the title: Memes...

Selena: Ugh, this again...
Ddraig: Apparently so, but let the baby have his bottle, he's done with all his coursework and stuff now.

Oh, but you're gonna like this one! *runs off, returning shortly later*

Danthe: Oh, blast it! I thought I was done with this nonsense... Oh, hi Ddraig.
Ddraig: Hi. Hi!

1. Do you ever doubt the existence of others than you?
Ddraig: Uhhh... Is that supposed to be some kind of existential sort of thing?
Danthe: None of this is real. This is Ro'Gul punishing me for my sins... Will this insessant girl let GO of me?!
Selena: I can't! You're too awesome, and someone's been flanderizing me!
Ddraig: Urgh, ok, let me go fix it... *flies off to beat the shit out of... What, did you think I'd let myself get the crap kicked out of me by FINISHING that sentence?!*

2. On a scale of 1-5, how afraid of the dark are you?
Danthe: Erm... We're all adults...

3. The person you would never want to meet?
"Trump. Well maybe I would. Because then I'd get to throw something at him, like human rights." ~ZLO-forest-xx

Ddraig: Well, whoever posted this comment when we got here... I like this person.
Selena: ...I HATE it when the author goes and starts flanderizing me. Sorry Danthe, your majesty.
Danthe: ¬_¬ Hm.

4. What is your favorite word?
Dollop! Is "spoopy" a word? That too."

Dammit, Spoopy is just too good a word... Though :iconsilverstarstruck:, was this a Game Grumps reference? Because it's up there with Spoofy if it is!

5. If you were a type of tree, what would you be?
Danthe: These questions are strange.
Ddraig: I suppose, but I'd say an apple tree... Or a cherry tree! Both are good, and they make fruit for people!

6. When you looked in the mirror this morning what was the first thing you thought?
Who do you THINK OF... when you look in the Mirror? ...Does he look like me?

7. What shirt are you wearing?
Ddraig: We're dragons. We're all naked, except Danthe, who's wearing a metric shit ton of armour.

"My mom."

Yeah, same...
Ddraig: Awww. :D

13. Your worst enemy?
Tories...! Murderer (Heh, it's funny because they're blue-balls.)
Sorry folks. If you didn't know this was going to get political at some point, you weren't paying attention.
Ddraig: Damn straight!
Danthe: What's a Tory?
Ddraig/Selena: >_> <_<
Selena: Will you tell her or do I have to?
Ddraig: She's YOUR hero!
Selena: Then you tell her!

14. What is your current desktop picture?
That's a little subjective, isn't it?
Danthe: Yeah, I don't know what computers are. I should, but I don't. Apologies...

15. Do you like someone?
Ddraig: I like lots of people. What about, Selena?


16. The last song you listened to?

Danthe: Hm, credit where it's due... Swedes. They're probably the closest any of us Scandinavians have gotten to empire yet.
Nightshade: Forever alone

Ddraig: Ha ha, funny. :S

22. Do you have a secret talent? If yes, what is it?
Ddraig: Dude, I'm in Politics. We all KNOW I'm secretly an evil conquerer of worlds! What kind of question is THAT?!

23. What is one unique thing you’re afraid of?
Everyone: Agreed!

24. You can only have one kind of sandwich. Every sandwich ingredient known to humankind is at your disposal.
Ddraig: Bacon Butties, no question.

Ddraig: Erm... We're all Lawful Goods... Technically, we're not ALLOWED to do that... ^^;
Selena: Hey! A hundred Drakemarks! I'm going to Pizza Hut!

(A moment of silence for :iconamcalmaron:, who will never again know the wonders of Pizza Hut, as apparently the last 'Hut in NZ has closed... Moment of silence. This is truly a dark, dark day. :p)

26. You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere in the world, but you have to leave immediately. Where are you going to go?

Damn, SilverStarstruck , you're quite a lefty, aren't you? We should talk... ;)

29. What is your favorite expletive?

And well, y'know, all of my technology. All of it. I don't care if there's a fire or not. F the rules!


31. You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?
Ddraig: Erm... We refuse to answer this question, as none of us can agree on it. Here's a picture of a thing from Five Nights a Freddie's instead. I mean, that fad's still cool, right? Right!?
Selena: No, Ddraig. It was never cool. :S

Oh, and forgot to mention something for the volcano scenario; it occured to me while thinking about that that a Vampire would be the perfect person to help out in this scenario...they'd be able to survive the worst of the injuries (I mean, it'd still hurt, but they'd bounce back) and so could venture into areas that are too dangerous for most dragons to enter and rescue people...they'd end up being national heroes and lavished with praise and gifts! It could actually redeem vampires in the public eye...although on the downside, it'd likely lead to a spike in more angsty teenage vampire stories...

Heh, although on that note, remember that idea for the Night Watch living in an old palace in the undercity? Perhaps they have nights where one of their number reads excerpts from the latest vampire novel, and they all scream with laughter at it! Perhaps they even have to set a watch on their own home to stop kids from trying to sneak in and get bitten!

Good point. As for vampire stories... Eeeeh, it's a harmless piece of tasteless anti-culture.

Heh, I smell a fanfiction... ;)
AMCAlmaron Featured By Owner 21 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Ehh, I suppose.

Heh, indeed! Elwynn's story! The one where he finds Shahida! I'm picturing it starting with him and some vampire friends (including the one he broke up with) all having a fun night out together (they'd all be sitting at a table and drinking wine or something and chatting while somebody on stage reads out cheesy lines), and they'd talk about relationships, and eventually he'd go out for a fly, and would run into Shahida, who's coming to join them and learn their trade...

Well, okay, Twilight sucks, but has it actually had a lasting negative effect on any other part of Human Culture... Aside from 50 Shades?

Ah, so that could be how the pair end up together... Yeah, this is all starting to weave into each other quite nicely.

Two other random thoughts...firstly, I was thinking about that idea for a volcano to erupt at Munitions Forge, leading to a Pompeii style event, and it occurred to me that it could be something that happens during the next timeskip, as one of the chaotic events that crop up alongside the famine and all those wars...but anyway, it would make for quite an exciting scene; imagine modern ships all trying to evacuate people from a modern city as it slowly collapses under ash...

The other thing was that I was thinking about that idea for Ddraig having some contemplative/introspective moment again - the one where she'd be staring into a mirror or something and considering that she'd been female longer than male, or something along those lines - and a quote suddenly flew into my mind for a bit where Ddraig would be reminiscing; "Womanhood had beckoned, and Ddraig/she had followed unflinchingly/without fear." I quite like the way it sounds!
Ddraigtanto Featured By Owner 21 hours ago  Hobbyist Writer
Ah, nice. I'm on board with this.
AMCAlmaron Featured By Owner 21 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool; something else for the World in Chaos drabble era!

I think that's been the problem with that other concept I was mentioning about Ddraig's appearance; I really wanted to do something exploring her thoughts about the whole situation, but it ended up derailing a bit along the way...but a line like that would help focus it better!
Ddraigtanto Featured By Owner 20 hours ago  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, it IS a good line

Ooh, ooh, I've got an awesome new idea for a'll be a bit of a biggie, but I think we should get it done (:iconsilverstarstruck:? I think this might be something you'd find pretty interesting...)! Basically, I was thinking about that observation of mine that Danthe and Ddraig had very similar families, and I noticed another connection; both Hosvir and Elwynn were named for dragons who died from throat injuries...anyway, I felt like we should do something to acknowledge this somewhere in the series, and then it hit me; a picture!

So it'd have Danthe and her family as spirits sitting in the clouds and looking down at Ddraig and family, and they'd each be mirroring a member of the Danthe above Ddraig and them both smiling, Finn above Alexander and them both holding some tool of stewardship or something like that, Nauma above Eve, Hosvir above Elwynn, Dagmaer above Alexandria and Amora above Selena (perhaps they're both in armour?)...and little Prince Taelen on the edges looking curiously at them; perhaps he's even looking up at the sky and noticing the spirits?

What do you think?
Ddraigtanto Featured By Owner 21 hours ago  Hobbyist Writer
Ooooh! That's awesome. Yeah, SilverStarstruck , we need to make this a thing. Let's talk. :D
