(Double-sided axe shown below)

 

                                                                            Amazing drawing of Topaz Gypsy by Ally Kay

                                                                                 

Backstory:

          When Paz was 3, she and her parents were sailing along with the rest of their tribe to find a new island. When a huge storm capsized the boat in the middle of the night, it killed the majority of the tribe, including her father. The remaining few washed up on the shores of Berk. When they realized they had been blown drastically off course, Stoic offered to let them stay, under the condition that they became members of the tribe of Berk. Shortly afterwards, however, Paz's mother had contracted an unknown illness (pneumonia) and died. Gothi, who had grown fond of the child in that short time, decieded to raise her as an apprentice.

 

Due to her postion with Gothi, she does have an aqquaintence with Hiccup and the other dragon riders, but that's about it. When she's not studying at the School of Dragons during the school year, she's assisting Gothi at her house. She recieved a deep scar across her right eye when training her first dragon Minty. Fortunetly it doesn't affect her vision. It does, however, tend to flare up on occasions, which makes it burn and turn an irritated red.

 

 

Likes: Animals, music, stargazing, watching the sunrise/ sunset, being helpful or witty (which doesn't happen often), practicing with her ax, hanging out with friends (also doesn't happen often)

Dislikes: Being belittled because of her occasional naiveness and/ or appearance (She looks 1-2 years younger than she actually is), the dark/ unknown, romance, pink, girly things in general, the taste of mint (suprisingly enough, she likes the smell though)

 

((Note: Besides her axe, Paz also carries a leather satchel, which has a small first aid kit, compass, a whittleing knife that she uses to carve patterns on her ax handle, a small spyglass and various other items))

 

((Funfact: Paz means peace in Spanish, which I did not know when first creating the character. Ironically enough, being peacefull is not one of her strongsuits))

                  

Dragon:

Dragon's name: mint chip

Nickname: Minty

Gender: Female

Species: Deadly Nadder

Class: Tracker (Still don't get why they were moved out of the Sharp class)

Color: Mint Green (Hence the name) with beige details.

Personality: A loyal dragon with a generous helping of wit and sass. She doesn't really see anyone as in charge, so she can be somewhat unpredictable, doing what she wants or thinks is better. She will stick one of her spines in you if annoyed, which Paz figured out quickly. Despite her flaws, she will do anything to protect those who gain her trust. While not the most powerful Nadder due to her size, she is one of the fastest. Racing is one of her favorite hobbies.

 

Likes: Racing, dragon nip, mint, salmon, hunting.

Dislikes: Being cooped up, people who annoy her, being told what to do, swimming.

 

RP's that I've taken part in (not all of them were finished)

(By the way, if you know of an rp that you think I'd be interested in based on the ones listed above, let me know)

 

 

 

​And now the fun part...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Y'all get to learn

 

 

about me!!!!

 

 

 

(a little bit. Probably wouldn't be wise to give away my secret identity)

​(Not that I'm a celebrity or anything... Or am I?)

 

 

 

​(No... thankfully not... moving on)

 

 

​I'm probably not in any fandoms, per se, but I feel like I have a borderline unhealthy obbsesion for some of the subjects listed below:

 

​(P. S. These are not in any particuar order)

 

HTTYD (why else would I be on here?)

​Big Hero 6

​The Avengers (Actually, just the MCU in general)

Pirates of the Caribbean

The Chronicles of Narnia (sorta, haven't hung out in that fantasy in a while)

​The Fellowship of the Ring

TMNT (The 2012 reincarnation)

​Phineas and Ferb

​Brave

​Star Wars

Milo Murphey's Law (again, sorta. It only just came out)

(There are probably more. I'll update as I think of them)

 

 

​A couple of not so random facts about me

 

1. I'm a Christian.

​2. I'm a pianist.

3. I'm 100% American (Not that it technically means anything as far as ethnic heritage since the US is the mixing pot of cultures and whatnot. I think my great great grandparents were Polish) Specifically, I'm from the southeastern portion.

4. I've traveled to 18 out of the 50 US states. Outside of my country, I have been to Italy, England, and Germany.

​5. I'm an equestrian.

6. I named my OC after two of my pets.

​7. I sing in the alto section at my choir (which means yes, I'm a girl. Is it just me, or are the majority of the people on here also girls?)

​8. I'm working on learning Spanish, so don't be suprised if I pop a couple of spanish words while talking on here. (I probably won't, but if I do, now you know why)

 

Favorite Music Artists

NF (Which stands for Nate Feuerstein, not Night Fury), Toby Mac, Ryan Stevenson, Mattew Parker, Jaymie Grace, Tori Kelly, Unspoken, Lecrae... (I could go on for a while)

 

 

 

 

 

Fantasy Idea Corner:

 

(largely, if not entirely based on stuff I've read from other people, so not exactly original)

(This is likely to be updated every time a new idea pops into my head)

 

 

​Here's an idea for a fanfiction that I'll probably never write

​...As in, 86% certainty that I won't

 

 

Tony Stark A. K. A. "Iron Man" = Hiro Hamada A. K. A.... "?" (Not sure he has a superhero name)

Steve Rogers A. K. A. "Captain America" = Jack Overland Frost A. K. A. "Winter Soldier" (I know, it's taken, not caring over here)

Bruce Banner A. K. A. "The Hulk" = Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III A. K. A. "The Night Fury"

Thor= Merida (They're so cool they don't need an alter ego)

Natasha Romanoff A. K. A. "Black Widow"= Elsa A. K. A. "Frost Bite"

Clint Barton A. K. A. "Hawkeye"= Eugene Fitzherbert A. K. A. "Flynn Rider" ('Cause I don't see how Rapunzel would get caught up in this in the first place)

Nick Fury = Nick Fury ('Cause he's awesome. I'd put Frozone, but that's a little too much ice for my liking)

​Maria Hill = Heather the Unhinged

​Agent Coulsen = Agent Coulsen ('Cause who else is gonna do his job?)

 

​(If you've had any experience with marvel in general, you probably get the idea)

(Not entirely sure how I'd incorperate villains with this setup though... Or backstories for most of them... It's a half baked idea, like most of my fantasies)

 

 

And this is another one that I'm actually feeling much more passionate about starting at some point. If you're a writer and like this idea too, please pm me. I need someone to bounce ideas off of.

(It's kind of like those Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons fanfictions, but not at the same time.)

 

The main team would consist of:

Hiccup

Merida (Brave)

Elsa (Because I haven't actually seen Rise of the Guardians and am not a huge fan of non-cannonical parings, such as Jelsa)

Hiro (Big Hero 6)

Rey (Star Wars)

Spider-Man (The one played by Tom Holland, so MCU Spidey)

Wreck-it-Ralph (Actually, not quite as sure about this one, might cut him out)

 

​Main plot idea:

So, there's this inter-demensional time-traveling silvertounge (Kind of like Docter Who... I think. I don't actually know, haven't watch the series for myself. Either way, he/she does try to stay out of that guy's way) and his/her sidekick/mentee who come across a villain (unknown currently, he would have to be an OC though) who wants to take control of the multi-verse so that he/she can control whatever happens in them, purely for his/her enjoyment.

 

​To put a stop to them, the good-guy duo decided to transport some of there favorite characters to their base to help them fight off the crazed geek. Mainly because they've always wanted an excuse to do this. Also, to make it semi-worth their time, this is going to happen after all their current movies and their universes will be suspended in time so that no one would miss them being gone.

 

 

Also, each character that was selected gets to chose one other character from their universe to help, if they chose to do so. However, if they choose a non-human, they get to also pick one human companion too.

 

Side characters to be chosen include:

Toothless and Astrid

Baymax and Gogo

BB-8 and Finn

Sergeant Calhoun

(can't think of any other's that would be helpful for this story)

 

 

 

​And now for random quotes!

 

​"Why are we stopped?​"

​"The lights red.​"

​"... THERE ARE NO RED LIGHTS IN A CAR CHASE!!!​"

Gogo and Wasabi in Big Hero 6

 

 

"Ooohhh..."

"Ooohhh yes."

"You, sir are playing a dangerous game. Keeping this much raw... vikingness contained. THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES!​"

"I'll take my chances. Sword. Sharpen. Now."

Hiccup and Gobber in How to Train Your Dragon.

 

 

*Cap's shield flies though the air doing awesomeness.*

"That thing doesn't obey the laws of phisics at all!"

Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War

 

​​"Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard, and he is my brother.​"

"He killed eighty people in two days."

"... He's adopted?​"

Thor and Black Widow in Avengers.

 

"Sometimes the only payoff for having any faith is when it's tested again and again everyday."

Immortals by Fall Out Boy.

 

​(More pictures/stuff coming soon)

  Thanks for reading my sigg​y!

Also sometimes you can find cool pictues on google and copy and paste useing the little house icon in the edits. You dont have to create an acount with someone, though it is not as limited or slower. Sometimes doing this the pictures dont even show! But thats small. Hope it helps! :D

Biography:

 

 Hello everyone! I'm CristalWings! I'm an elder of the clan Unique Legacies, and a member of The Dragon Racers! I have been playing SOD for over a year now!  I love all of  the HTTYD movies and seasons! (but i like the first best!). Like most I adore Hiccup and Toothless! I am not a member sadly but I dont like the idea of paying real money to play a game. (that doesnt mean im not a serious player!)  But I have done a free month of membership and did quite a bit of the packs! I love painting, (my account pic is usually one that I painted!!) singing,acting and of course playing SOD! My favorite music artists are TobyMac, Britt Nicole, Mandisa, and For King and Country! I often watch SilverWeed San on youtube! I love dogs and horses! My favorite color is light blue which is how i came up with my name. I have bought the Edge, Icestorm Island, and the deathsong pack. Whenever i find an argument i try to stop it with everyone leaving happy so i guess im a Peacemaker here in the game. Im always posting something cool so check out my track! I love you all! Keep on shining!!!

Upload your image to say, Tinypic.com. You'll get a bunch of codes in your face after it's done. You can pick the 'direct url for layouts', copy it, then go to your post in the making. Click the portrait icon at the top of the editor.

 

 

Paste the URL where it says URL, click ok and voila. That should be it.

 

But please please please  for the love of everything holy, don't upload anything much broader than 650px (unless there's a good reason haha). I saw the video by Swift Champion for example (didn't see silverweed's, it's unnecessarily long soz), and they uploaded a whopping 1600px image for display. Apart from the fact that it's completely unnecessary, it causes more bad than good. It makes everything super laggy for a lot of people because the number of people who upload humongous images in piles and piles is way, way too high ;_;

You can't upload pictures

You can't upload pictures from computer. You can only upload picture from internet ( social site etc). You need to copy it's URL and put it in your message.

You can upload pictures from the computer. That's what uploading is; It uploads an image from one device to another or to a(n online) host.

One more thing though...

How do you take screenshots inside SoD? I tried pressing the windows button and the PrtSc button at the same time, but it only screenshot my desktop screen.

i have yet to figure that

i have yet to figure that out. I use safari for sod.  I know that you press windows and g at the same time but that doesnt really work for me because my screen doesnt want to be in full and if i go in the game to make it full i cant open the screenshot so.. But if you screenshot a picture it will show up in your computer files. :)

You don't need the windows key unless you want to save from your clipboard to your PC directly. Try just hitting print screen and paste (ctrl+v or edit > paste) into your favourite program. Does that work for you?

No

Whenever I try to take a screenshot in the game, it just takes a picture of my desktop.

Are you using the download, browser or app version? Can you open the snipping tool and use that to make a screenshot?

I'm using the download version.

Also, I can't use the snipping tool either. Whenever I open up the game it uses the whole screen and I can't play and use the other apps at the same time.

It doesn't give me that option.

It might be because I have Microsft Edge. Would I be able to run on the internet with a different one?

It shouldn't matter what browser you use if you play the download version of SoD but you could try using something else. Perhaps it'll work?
