Hello everyone! Random finally pulled through and finished up a dragon species that I've been meaning to create for months, and finally got around to it last November. Heh...

So these dragons are from the world of Harry Potter, with each based off a snitch and one of the four Hogwarts Houses. The one you see above is the Hufflepuff dragon, Newt, which I'm afraid to say I'm going to keep. 

 

Without further ado, the species information!

 

 

~Info~

 

Golden Snitch Dragons are rare, miniature dragons known for their speed, agility, and colorful personalities. Similar in looks to the popular Snitches from the wizarding game Quidditch, these dragons  have delicate silvery wings with shimmering gold or silver scales. However, no two Snitch Dragons are completely alike. Each one seen or caught has differed from the other members of it's species, even in only the most minor ways. 

 
Golden Snitch Dragons each carry a gleaming golden ball. This ball is a part of the dragon from hatching, for as soon as they hatch, a young Snitch Dragon melts the golden eggshell that once encased it and forms it into a circular ball with it's white, searing flames. Over the span of it's life, it may add gold, take it away, add details, leave it the same as it was from day one, etc. For males, it is normally a simple ball made of pure golden metal. For females, there are often finer details such as script, gemstones, swirls of silver, etc. added onto the ball. Just because this is what is most common, does not mean this is fact. There could be males with detailed balls or females with simple ones, depending on the dragon's preference.
 
Wild Snitch Dragons normally live in colonies of up to twenty, and communicate through high musical notes. However, there have been known loner dragons searching for company of another. It must be noted that Golden Snitch Dragons are excellent judges of character. For the few seeking out a companion, they often look for something with a kindred spirit to their own, and a few will even refuse to bond with anything that doesn't meet their standards. This can make it difficult to tame or train these dragons, which is why the available information on this species is so limited. 
 
 
 
~Rules!~
 
1. These dragons are from the wizarding world, so your backstories must take place there. You can have the view of either a muggle or a witch/wizard. If I see any stories about vikings on berk finding a Golden Snitch Dragon, I'm sorry to tell you that it will be rejected immediately.
 
2. First come, first serve. I will not be doing reservations. I may make special exceptions, depending on the circumstances, but for the most part you're on your own.
 
3. I'm not going to be grading nicely. If your backstory is too much of an unrealistic taming story, I may reject it. Honestly I might actually be more inclined to accept a story where you simply visit the dragon/follow it for a while and never tame it. 
 
4. Do not reply to the DO NOT REPLY post.
 
5. Please put: "Hiding in the Newtcase" as you're subject if you've read these rules. 
 
 
 
I know I might seem like I'm being harsh with no reservations and difficult backstory requirements, but in reality it basically boils down to the fact that I won't accept mediocre work. I doubt any of you would attempt an adoption with that anyways, so you should all be good! No worries. :3

DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS POST!!

~Available Adoptables~

 

 

1. Gryffindor ~ Adopted by Grumpy

 

2. Slytherin

 

3. Ravenclaw ~ Adopted by Geekdom

 

~Bonus!~

Chibi Dark Mark

(Not really a dark mark tbh)

 

 

~Challenger's Egg~

 

I feel bad for keeping one of the original four, so to make up for it, I've decided to do a customizable egg. 

The Challenger's Egg.

 

To win this egg, you complete four challenges imposed upon you in a PM with Random herself. These challenges will test your Courage, Intelligence, Ability, and Luck. Should you pass with the highest score, the egg and the hatchling within are yours to claim and customize.

 

Each section is graded by a number of points. The first person to reach 85 or higher wins. However, if no one manages to get to 85 by the end of December, I'll give the egg to the person with the highest score, to be fair.

 

Good Luck!!

~Extra~

 

I forgot to mention in the original post that you may only adopt 1 dragon per person, simce there's only three. The bonus Snake and the Challenger's Egg are exceptions to this rule.

 

Since everyone seems to be confused about this, I'll clear it up here. Golden Snitch Dragons are normally very small, about the size of a Terrible Terror. There can be magical or freak-accident-type reasons for them to be larger in size, but those are normally rare.

Yeah, I have, but I decided against it because they would all be the same color. To make each one look unique while using the same house colors would require a heavier hand in the mascot-theme part, and I didn't want to overdue it with animal snouts/paws/tails/etc. I have thought about making a single Ilvermorny Snitch Dragon, but then I wouldn't know what animal to base it off of. Overall it just seemed like it would become a confusing mess. Besides, I don't even think Ilvermonry has Quidditch, do they? 

 

The only other Snitch Dragons I was considering making were a Hogwarts Sorting-Hat themed one, and a Movie-Ravenclaw (since the original was based off the book's colors and mascot). I'm kinda starting to get tired of working on these dragons already, though. The egg customizable will probably be the last one I do.

Hiding in the Newtcase-what's a newtcase? :/

Well I WAS going to ask you to save the Gryffindor one but your not saving so I guess I'll be tracking!  I'll write the backstory once I figure out how XD. (Yea, I know nothing about Harry potter except the houses and parnosis.  And yes I know I spelled parnosis wrong :P)

Hiding in the Newtcase

-Form-

Name:

Reggie

Age:

4

Gender:

Male

Personality:

Reggie is hard headed and studdorn. He doesn't like to shoes his emotions to others. He very anti social. He enjoys going to potions and defense against the dark arts with me. He also has problems with Gryndor kids. Reggie loves dried meet with more dried meat. He also doesn't like heights.

Backstory:

I just got out potions when I went outside to get some fresh air. So I walked outside and I heard something squealing. I looked out into the brush and saw the little snake there. I tried to pick him up but he hissed at me. So I pretend to turn around and quickly shoot back and grabbed him by the tail. I wasn't trying to be mean but he looked hungry and hurt. 

 

So I brought him into my dormitory (Ravenclaw) and set him on my bed. He tried to slither away but I kept him on the bed. He didn't look very odd so I put him in a cup while I went and got him some food. I didn't know what he liked so I brought up some dried meat and some grapes. I tried the grapes on him first to see if he was a vegetarian. But he wasn't so I gave him the dried meat. He finally took but he shoot me a glare telling me that he wasn't mine just yet. So I picked him up to see if he was also hurt. On his underbelly, he had a thorn probably  from the brush I found him in. So I pulled it out. He didn't seem to be hurt or not. He easily could have been without me noticing but he looked just fine. I kept him in my dorm for the rest of the year to make sure he didnt get hrs again. Over time he began to like me and I grew to love him. We have been together ever since.

Extra:

I'm getting the death mark snake!

Sorry, but I'm going to have to reject this. 

 

The personality is rather... Dull. It's all over the place and tells me more about his likes and dislikes than actual character, which isn't the point of a personality. 

 

The backstory is very much a magical taming story and unoriginal. You snatched up a hostile snake and didn't get bitten? You entertained the possibility that the snake could be vegetarian? There's no such thing as a vegetarian snake. You also didn't mention anything about the skull, which is a large part of the adoptable. I might've let it slide if the backstory was very good, but it's poorly thought out and riddled with errors.

 

To put it shortly, your form is poorly thought out, unoriginal, and riddled with logical errors that make it unrealistic. Sorry, but no. 

 

You're free to try again if you like.

Hiding in the Newtcase... FOREVER

*gasp*

THEY'RE HERE THEY'RE HERE THEY'RE HERE

 

Name: Rowena (what else?)

 

Age: Uncertain. Several decades at least.

 

Gender: Female

 

Personality: Rowena is quiet, but not because she's shy. She's more... arrogant. She's highly strategic and constantly creams everyone at chess. She considers humans to be beneath her, but will deign to consort with a few she has deemed worthy.

 

Backstory: I was glancing out the window of my tower when I first saw her fly past. I was instantly in love with the shimmering swirls of gold on her body, the feathers on her elbows, and her elegant, floating wings. I saw the golden ball she was carrying, carved with words in an elaborate script, but before I could make out the words, she was gone.

It took me weeks to find her again. She was perched on top of the tower, where she apparently made her home, and it was quite a challenge to get up there. She flew away whenever I tried to approach her with a broomstick; she seemed to consider it cheating. So I had to climb. When I reached her, she wouldn't let me approach. She simply rolled the ball towards me, and I saw that every inch was covered in riddles, ones much harder than the ones the common room door usually gave me. She seemed to have collected the best ones for a long time, decades, maybe centuries. I examined them all thoroughly, until I could recite them backwards in my sleep, but I had no idea. Defeated, I was forced to retreat.

I spent hours every day in the library, reading every book remotely related to any of the riddles. It was hard work, but I'm stubborn. After three weeks of hard studying, I was ready. I returned to the tower, and when she returned the ball to me, I answered her riddles. She consented to allow me to come close to her and to touch her. She refused to let me ride her, though.

After that, she came down to the common room sometimes. Sometimes she'd curl up in front of the fire or sit next to me and read over me shoulder as I did my homework--that drove me crazy, because she was constantly making disapproving noises when she felt I did something wrong and always made me second-guess myself, but I got great grades on those assignments! Most of the time, though, she played chess with anyone and everyone who was willing to play her. After the first three times she creamed them, most people weren't willing anymore. But like I said, I'm stubborn. I read books about chess technique, learned from my mistakes, watched her technique as I played her time and time again, and one fateful day, I beat her.

She allowed me to ride on her back for the first time.

I'll never forget that day. It was different entirely from broomstick, hippogriff, winged horse, or any other method of flying I've ever tried, and it was better than any of them. The next day, as I climbed up to her tower as usual, I expected another ride, but I was wrong. She would only grant me a ride after I had beaten her at chess, which was a rare occurence no matter what I did. But it was worth being creamed a thousand times over just for one flight.

 

Extra: This is the Ravenclaw dragon.

STUFF:

You can call me Geek or Geekdom for short. I'm a girl, by the way.

Thank you, AllyNadderRider, for my profile picture!

My fandoms include *deep breath* Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, MLP, HTTYD, Marvel, Ranger's Apprentice, and Narnia.

Here are my OCs and adoptables:

 

First up is Allie, my main OC.

Her dragon is Excelsior, a stormcutter. The picture of her and Excelsior is by Scorpio Kardia, and the one of just her is by Pixel.

Allie's organized and practical, but still really absentminded at times. She's awkward around people she doesn't know very well and when it comes to muscles she's pretty wimpy, but she can whip up a pretty great strategy. If only people would listen to her when she tried to explain it. She really doesn't like hurting other people or animals, and that's not even including the fact that she feels queasy around blood.

Her weapon of choice is a hairbrush. Why? Even I don't know.

 

Then there's Kara.

 

Kara was an Outcast, but now she lives in Berk. It's a long story. I might write a fanfic about it... eventually. The razorwhip edit is by NadderMeGood. Drawing of Kara by MistyNight.

Kara is spunky and stubborn. She's tough as nails, and she's suspicious of any kindness. She grew up in a very dog-eat-dog world, after all. Her weapon is a warhammer, and she primarily rides a razorwhip named Shine, though the armorwing from the Battle for the Edge expansion and the singetail from the Return to Dragon Island expansion are also her dragons.

 

Next up we have Starr.

[No pictures of Starr currently]

I use her for next-gen roleplays. Starr has long, blonde hair and dark green eyes. Her bonenapper, Crypt, is still young and doesn't have a full armour. This picture of him is by TosiLohi.

Starr is shy and quiet. She really loves maps and mapping, and she's good at rock-climbing. Crypt is cocky and stubborn and refuses to listen to a word Starr says. She found him as an egg, which is why I have this awesome picture by Gorginia47:

 

Finally, there's Lissa.

[No pictures of Lissa currently]

She's another one for next-gen things. She's short and kind of pudgy, with black hair and grey-blue eyes. Her dragon, Santa Claws, is a battered red/white/green groncicle.

Lissa is really good with animals. She's kind and compassionate. Santa escaped from Drago a while ago, but his experience there left him scarred both emotionally and physically. Lissa was able to help him work through his trauma, and the two forged a powerfully unbreakable bond.

 

Here are my adoptables. On the newer ones (as of 10/17/16) the dragon species name is a link to the adoptable thread. If I get around to digging up some of the older threads I'll link them too, but that may not happen.

 

 

These are Ithil, Anor, and Earendil, my Spacial Beauties. They're siblings: moon, sun, and stars.

Ithil is named for the moon in Elvish, from The Lord of the Rings; he's playful and always ready for a romp and a good time. When vikings around him are drinking mead, he likes to take a sip, and he becomes very goofy and then falls asleep, soundly and for a long time.

Anor, on the other hand, is the sun. She is quieter and more reserved. She's very observant and sees a lot of things that go on in Berk. She likes napping in the sunlight, which her scales reflect blindingly. She loves plants and everything that grows, and often tries to help them along, with varying success.

Earendil's namesake is one of the brightest stars of Middle-Earth; she's shy and reserved. She loves to explore and find places where nobody's ever been before. She likes boats, and never gets seasick. Earendil can make the parts of her that look like stars glow brightly, even blinding those who threaten her or her friends. She hates spiders.

Name: Anuniaq

Species: Keelut

Backstory:

Starr was exploring the north with her boneknapper, Crypt, mapping the scattered islands. After she made camp one night, however, she discovered a lot of stores were missing the next day. She found doglike tracks running through the snow, but after she followed them for twenty yards, they disappeared. When she studied the depth and angle of the last tracks compared to the previous ones, though, it looked like it had taken flight, like it was a dragon--but what dragon had prints like a dog?

She sketched the prints in her notebook and set off through the air with Crypt to track the dragon. Though Crypt was not an exceptional tracker, he was able to follow the scent of the stolen food fairly well. They landed near a hollow, where Starr saw a smallish dragon devouring the last of her stolen supplies.

Using the rest of her supplies, she lured the dragon back to Berk. She soon found it had a curious mind and was eager for adventure, much like herself. The two formed a bond as Starr took care of the creature, who seemed to have been fairly hungry up in the north. She named the dragon "Anuniaq", a name that to those of the north she came from meant "Hunts for Food". Another translation was "Hunts for Knowledge", which was also accurate. Starr took Anuniaq with her often on her exploring journeys up north. Not only did the dragon get to visit her homeland again, she was also excellent at navigating the area, and her uncanny ability to locate food meant they could travel lighter, packing fewer supplies.

Backstory:

Allie enjoyed sitting down to fish, getting a chance to just relax. Today, she'd borrowed a boat and was out fishing on the open ocean. Excelsior was circling the area, flying around. Allie had caught a lot of fish and was getting ready to return home when suddenly, many dragons swooped in on her and began attacking. She pulled out her hairbrush (her weapon of choice, don't judge) and swung it, but it passed right through the creatures. She was confused, but the dragons soon disappeared again. Odd.

When she turned around, she suddenly realized her entire day's catch had been stolen! Through the water, she caught a glimpse of a long purple creature sliding away through the water. She called Excelsior to her and followed it. It looked like some kind of dragon. She called Excelsior, mounted, and followed the new dragon.

Before long they caught up to it, sitting on the shore and eating the last of Allie's fish.  It was a beautiful dragon, and Allie walked up to it cautiously, not knowing how it would behave. It fixed her with a stare of its eyes, and somehow she felt it was sizing her up, deciding if she was worthy. She trusted her instincts about this, and also about what he was looking for. She kept her eyes open, not blinking, and stared it in the eyes as she gave it a short bow. It paused for a moment, then lowered its own head, returning the bow. Allie reached up and stroked its nose. The nose felt hard, kind of like a beak. In her mind, Allie began calling the dragon Buckbeak.

It lowered its neck, allowing her to mount, then took her for a ride across the top of the ocean. It was amazingly fast, and the water splashing her was cool and refreshing. Before long, it returned her to the rocky area, where Excelsior was waiting.

She took off, and Buckbeak didn't follow, but she often returned (especially on hot days) to visit him and go for a ride.

(Okay, maybe this dragon reminded me a bit of a hippogriff.)

Adopted from: WitcherForever

Name: Forest Light (Light for short)

Species: Cave Raider (Hatchling)

Backstory:

Lissa and Santa Claws, her groncicle, were out scouting the forest. They were so absorbed in watching the wildlife on the forest floor that they didn't notice the clouds beginning to gather until, with a rumble of thunder, the clouds opened up and poured down on them. Soaked through, Lissa turned back, but soon spotted a cave. She'd much rather stop there until the storm abated than head all the way back to Berk, and Santa seemed eager to reach shelter as well. Raindrops were freezing on his cold skin, weighing him down.

They landed in the cave, and Santa began ridding himself of the raindrops with his claws and teeth. Lissa started heading towards the back of the cave to explore. She thought she saw a faint glow ahead. Interested, she moved closer, then realized it was a dragon, and not just any dragon, a mother with a nest! She knew better than to mess with one of those, but it wasn't a dragon she'd ever seen before, and she was absolutely fascinated. So instead of backing away, she walked forward slowly. The dragon turned and growled at her, and Lissa noticed the glowing spines--fascinating! Hiccup would never forgive her if she let an opportunity like that go to waste. She lifted a hand. "It's okay," she whispered. If you used a high-pitched, fast voice, animals would get riled up, but a low and slow one would calm them, a fact Lissa knew well and would use to her advantage. "It's okay," she said again, forcing herself to be calm, practically exuding calm. Carefully, she reached up and stroked the dragon's nose soothingly.

Lissa wasn't a very talented girl, but this was where the talents she did have lay, in calming and understanding dragons, or any animal, really. She rarely used dragon nip, which felt like cheating to her. But this dragon was fairly calm already.

She grinned and started to walk towards the eggs, but a growl from the mother alerted her that she wasn't trusted that much yet. She backed away from the eggs, which seemed to earn her some more trust from the mother.

She continued to stroke that dragon, running her fingers down the neck, along the back, across the wings, down the tail. The dragon seemed to like that a lot, so Lissa continued for a while. In fact, what she was doing was memorizing the dragon's curves so she could describe it to Hiccup.

She heard the rain outside start to lessen and turned to head back outside, but the mother dragon made a little rumble that clearly meant, wait just one second. Then she turned to the eggs and nosed one towards Lissa, a foresty green one with bluer and yellower patches. The yellow patches glowed. Lissa gasped as she realized what the mother was telling her. Tenderly, she picked it up. "I'll take good care of it," she promised solemnly.

The glowing egg lit Lissa's way back through the tunnel, and she found Santa all ready to go. The rain had stopped now, so she mounted up, still holding the egg carefully, and headed back to Berk to tell Hiccup. He was excited she'd discovered a new species, and when the egg hatched, he sketched it from every angle while Lissa tried desperately to convince the dragon (who she'd named Forest Light) to sit still. He was a curious, adventurous fellow, and he loved riding on Santa when Lissa went anywhere. He was incredibly loyal and never left her side, and though he was extremely reluctant when he first learned to fly, he got the hang of it more quickly than any other dragon Lissa had seen. She took him often to visit his mother, but the visits didn't usually last very long, as the mother dragon had plenty of other babies on her hands.

Light wasn't really Lissa's dragon, not fully. Hiccup had a large hand in his training, too, and he soon showed an affinity for herding both sheep and small dragons, making him invaluable around the village. Lissa liked to joke that once he grew up, he'd keep the entire village full of dragons under control.

Species: Wardenrain

Backstory: Starr was, as usual, exploring. Crypt, her boneknapper, was exhausted, so she was forced to land on the first island that came into view. He collapsed into sleep as soon as they touched the ground, and she knew she wouldn't be able to wake him up, under any circumstances, for several hours.

Unfortunately, he'd landed right next to a lake, and the lake was full of scauldrons. They weren't hungry enough to leave the water, but they were still eyeing Crypt. Starr noticed rainclouds approaching, and realized that if it rained, the water would rise up to Crypt, and the scauldrons would eat him. As the first drops began to fall, she prepared herself to fight the scauldrons, but not with much hope of success.

Suddenly, she heard wingflaps above her. A strange dragon she'd never seen before was flying overhead, basking in the rain, and somehow drawing it to herself so that little of it fell. To show her appriciation, Starr caught the dragon a large pile of fish, which it ate eagerly.  She wasn't able to convince it to return to Berk with her, but whenever she returns to that area, she can always find it, and it's usually eager to play.

Adopted from: Krazykira24
Celestia watches over the element of light. As such, she is extremely attracted to shiny things.

Name: Revenge

Species: Ballistic Silentwing

Personality: Revenge is, as her name suggests, very vengeful. But that's not the only side to her nature. She's also very nurturing to younger dragons and more forgiving of them than of others. She enjoys flying and doing tricks, but she's very competitive. I don't let her compete, because she'll make it less fun for others.

Adopted from: chameishida

Name: Baby

Species: Starstruck

Backstory: I was walking by myself in the woods when I heard a keening yelp. I ran towards the noise, which sounded like an injured dragon. I burst into a clearing to see a baby starstruck being attacked by a boar. Knowing how rare they were, I wanted to save it, so I attacked the boar with nothing but a small dagger. Both I and the starstruck got pretty injured, but I managed to drive off the boar. The dragon and I had to work together to get back to Berk all right. By the time we were done, we'd formed a bond. I called her Baby while we were in the woods, just as a nickname, but she refused to answer to anything else later.

Backstory: Seafoam was one of my very first dragons. I passed her beached on the shore, floundering around and trying to return to the water. It took me a long time to convince her to trust me and let me help her get back into the water, but after that she was always swimming around when I came into the water and bringing me fish to thank me. I'm not sure if this is quite a dragon bond or one of those life-debt things, but I love her all the same whichever it might be.

Name: Rowena

Species: Golden Snitch Dragon

Personality: Rowena is quiet, but not because she's shy. She's more... arrogant. She's highly strategic and constantly creams everyone at chess. She considers humans to be beneath her, but will deign to consort with a few she has deemed worthy.

Backstory: I was glancing out the window of my tower when I first saw her fly past. I was instantly in love with the shimmering swirls of silver on her body, the feathers on her elbows, and her elegant, floating wings. I saw the golden ball she was carrying, carved with words in an elaborate script, but before I could make out the words, she was gone.

It took me weeks to find her again. She was perched on top of the tower, where she apparently made her home, and it was quite a challenge to get up there. She flew away whenever I tried to approach her with a broomstick; she seemed to consider it cheating. So I had to climb. When I reached her, she wouldn't let me approach. She simply rolled the ball towards me, and I saw that every inch was covered in riddles, ones much harder than the ones the common room door usually gave me. She seemed to have collected the best ones for a long time, decades, maybe centuries. I examined them all thoroughly, until I could recite them backwards in my sleep, but I had no idea. Defeated, I was forced to retreat.

I spent hours every day in the library, reading every book remotely related to any of the riddles. It was hard work, but I'm stubborn. After three weeks of hard studying, I was ready. I returned to the tower, and when she returned the ball to me, I answered her riddles. She consented to allow me to come close to her and to touch her. She refused to let me ride her, though.

After that, she came down to the common room sometimes. Sometimes she'd curl up in front of the fire or sit next to me and read over me shoulder as I did my homework--that drove me crazy, because she was constantly making disapproving noises when she felt I did something wrong and always made me second-guess myself, but I got great grades on those assignments! Most of the time, though, she played chess with anyone and everyone who was willing to play her. After the first three times she creamed them, most people weren't willing anymore. But like I said, I'm stubborn. I read books about chess technique, learned from my mistakes, watched her technique as I played her time and time again, and one fateful day, I beat her.

She allowed me to ride on her back for the first time.

I'll never forget that day. It was different entirely from broomstick, hippogriff, winged horse, or any other method of flying I've ever tried, and it was better than any of them. The next day, as I climbed up to her tower as usual, I expected another ride, but I was wrong. She would only grant me a ride after I had beaten her at chess, which was a rare occurence no matter what I did. But it was worth being beaten a thousand times over just for one flight.

Adopted from: IisRandom

Extra facts: This is a Harry Potter-universe dragon. Thus, she belongs to my HP OC Zenna instead of any of my HTTYD OCs. Also, Snitch Dragons are usually much smaller, but Rowena is several centuries old. Future Ravenclaws may well find her atop the tower, but beware. Her riddles only get harder as time goes on.

One time a herd of somethering smokebreaths came through and stole his entire hoard out from under him, and he didn't even twitch.

Species: Triple Stryke

(Short) Backstory: Altus saw Excelsior flying around one day and saw that their coloring was very similar. For some reason, he seemed inclined to trust her, so he followed her home. He was slower to trust Allie, but eventually the pair bonded, though Altus still seemed to prefer Excelsior, and took directions from her more readily than those from Allie.

Adopted from: donnala

Name: Orthanc

Species: This creature actually has no official name, but I call it a Flitterwing.

Backstory: I was walking in the woods when I found its egg. I took it back to Berk and raised it. It became very mischevious, and frightened me by turning into a cocoon for two weeks. I had never seen a species like it before. I suggested it be called a Flitterwing, but the Riders were doubtful.

Names: Nivelle and Solace

Species: Pollen Wing

Personality: Pollen wings are all about taking care of plants. This pair lives in an apple tree near the Great Hall and helps all the plants in Berk grow. Though they're siblings, these dragons are polar opposites. Nivelle loves winter, ice, and snow; Solace's favorite season is summer, the time of sun and warmth. 'Nivelle' means 'snow' in Latin; 'Solace' means 'sun'. Even so, the two work well together.

NON-DRAGON ADOPTABLES BELOW

This is Squee. She's a Pan Puffle, which is not a dragon- I'm not quite sure what it is. Squee is a real prankster. She likes even jumping out and scaring people, but she's adept at more elaborate pranks too. Being able to float around silently helps a lot with that. She can get carried away and hurt someone accidentally, but she would never do it on purpose... unless it was really, really funny. I adopted her from Sky and Ocean.

This is Tiger, a female teenage whale shark. She's a good friend of Mako's. She likes nosing around shipwrecks and looking at all the random stuff inside.

This is Jelly. Don't let her frighten you, she's really very friendly! She does have a bit of a temper, though, and sometimes when I look into her eyes, I seem to feel compelled to do what she wan- What's that, Jelly? You want me to tell them all how wonderful you are? And how amazing, and how... I don't know, that seems a bit excessive... oh, don't make that adorable face, you know I can't resist-

*monotone robot voice* Jelly is wonderful. She is amazing. I have never had a better pet. Jelly is my best friend.

Very good! Good grammar, original, and it lines up well with the information I provides for the species. There's only one problem I have with the size. 

 

Snitch Dragons are normally rather small, about the size of a Smoke Breath or Terrible Terror. However, since you left her age undecided and Rowena seems like a very intelligent dragon, I'm willing to let it slide by saying she's managed to maintain a steady growth through the years by magical means until she reached a size she was content with, or something like that anyways. XD

 

Enjoy Rowena! I hope you manage to master chess and ride her more often. :3

Also, fun fact: The writing on her ball in the original photo says 'Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure' in cursive. Many of the words were cut off or excluded to be more realistic and seem like it was covered by her paws or curved around to a side we couldn't see. I like your version with the riddles better, though. :P

Yay!

*happy noises*

I didn't see the size in your description and couldn't quite tell what was on the egg. I can make her smaller and unridable if you want, but I kind of like the idea of her being really old. For one thing, it explains how she has so much practice at chess, and also why she doesn't usually like humans--it's like an adult conversing with a five-year-old, most of it is irrelevant babble, but if you find a five-year-old that's unusually smart and can actually talk to you interestingly, you'll be more ready to hang out with them.

~Form~   Name: Firefawk   Age

~Form~

 

Name:

Firefawk

 

Age:

Not sure.  But definitely in his late teens

 

Gender: (Optional)

Male

 

Personality: (1 paragraph minimum)

Firefawk is most well described like a Griffin.  He prides himself in being high and mighty, even though most of the time he is not.  He's snarky and sarcastic, lots of the time making fun of others.  Firefawk can also be a bit er, forgetful.  He's forgotten many things over the years, and even lost his orb once, snitch made him very frantic.  He's also VERY proud and stubborn; almost nothing can move him.  But he is also very heroic and caring.  Once you gain his complete trust he will be with you to the end. 

 

Backstory: (NOTE:  I'm sorry if this isn't good enough for you.  I've never read Harry potter myself so I'm just riding off of what my friends have told me and what I've read and seen here and there :P)

 

 

Olivia yawned and closed her spell book with a slap.  Studying shapeshifting was hard work.  Especially when your neighbors were so loud.  She yawned once more and glanced up at the clock.  Then she jumped to her feet.  "Oh no!  I'm late to meet Brooklyn and rayven!"  Brooklyn and rayven, her two best friends at the school, were supposed to meet her at the bridge.  They were going to practice their broom flying.  Olivia hurrily stuffed her books into her bag, along with her wand, then ran as fast as she could out of the library.

 

She was still tired, but she had to get to the bridge before she missed them.  She ran out of the school gates, then stopped when she noticed a gleaming by the stone walls.  Olivia walked over and bent down, curious.  "What is this?"  She picked up the golden orb.  Then she stopped.  She could feel the hot breath of something behind her.  She turned slowly, and came face to face with a dragon.  It had fiery eyes and its tails looked like they were aflame.  It growled at her and spread it wings menacingly.

 

Olivia planted her hands on her hips.  "Oh what do you want you overgrown lizard?"  The Dragon stopped when she said that and stared surprised at her.  No one had talked to him like that.  Olivia, however, was no longer paying attention.  She picked up the orb and stuffed it into her bag.  "Now if you'll excuse me mister grumpypants, I've got a meeting I'm late to.  And then I need to find the owner of this orb."  The Dragon roared in her face, then snatched the bag from her.  

 

"Hey!  That's mine!"  Olivia shrieked.  The Dragon shook out the contents then picked up the golden orb.  It cradled it in its claws caringly.  Olivia seemed to understand then.  "Oh!  That was YOUR orb, wasn't it?"  She snapped her fingers.  "Darn!  I knew I should have played more attention in mythical beasts class!"  The Dragon seemed to laugh at her.  Olivia frowned again.  "What?  Are you laughing at me?  I'm a wizard for your information!  I could zap you in..offff!"

 

 The Dragon suddenly picked her up in his talons and flew up into the sky.  "Hey!  Watch it!  Your talons are sharp!"  The Dragon glided over the bridge.  Down below, Olivia could make out the tiny shapes of her friends.  "There they are!  Hey big guy, would you mind dropping me off?  I'm late, remember?"  The Dragon looked down to where she was pointing, then nodded his head up and down.  He folded in his wings and they both plunged down.  

 

The Dragon re-opened his wings once they were close, then tossed Olivia onto the bridge.  Olivia stumbled then fell to a heap in front of her friends.  She dusted herself off then yelled after it.  "Hey!  I wanted go get here in one piece!"  She grumbled some more as she dusted herself off.  "Dragons, so inconsiderate."  She turned to her two friends.  "Sorry about that.  I think my new friend as being grouchy."  

 

Brooklyn's mouth stood wide open.  "How did you of all people train a dragon?"  Olivia shrugged.  "I didn't.  Apparently he just wanted to give me a lift."  Rayven shook her head.  "I don't think so.  That was a golden snitch.  They only bond with people who are compatible with them in personality."  Olivia frowned.  "So your saying I'm as grumpy as him?"  Rayven smirked.  "Much more.  Now come on, enough talk about your new dragon pal.  Let's get to our broom flying."  Olivia shrugged. "Ok."  She glanced back to where she had seen the Dragon last.  "Hope he doesn't stay away too long.  That flight was kinda fun."

 

Extra:

It's the Gryffindor one I want ^^

 

Oh!  And i also want to try for the special egg :D

Hmrmrmmrmrmmm... What is it with everyone and the size issue? XD

Golden Snitch Dragons are MINATURE dragons. About the size of a Terrible Terror, normally. Unless they find some magical means to grow to larger sizes, they should be pretty small. 

 

I rather like the story in general, and I really appreciate the effort you put into it to try and set it in the wizarding world. There were a few minor things (they can't shapeshift, they either use a potion or turn into animagi and most wizards are frightened of dragons) but other than that it was very good considering you don't know much about Harry Potter. 

 

So, here's the thingy. I'll accept the story on one condition: you have to give me a good reason that the dragon is such a large size. It can be anything: magical, insane radiation type-thing, freak incident, something that happened to it as an egg/hatchling, etc. I'm not picky. I just want an explanation for the size, and you're all set. :3

 

Also, I think you would have a very good chance at getting the egg. The tests are very simple and unrelated to Harry Potter, and the more difficult one should be easy for you with this quality of writing. :D

If you do decide to go for it, just shoot me a PM. Good luck!

Oh XD  Whoops.  Yea, I'd better find a way to explain that.  But before I do, I must ask you a question.  Is there such thing as a growth potion or spell?  Because if there is, I can write a prequel to what happened to make him big.  And yes, I'll send you the pm soon! ;D  you really think my writing was good?  aww, shucks XD  that wasnt even my best work.  I've writen backstories that have taken me more then a week to finish (you should read the one i wrote for a lengendary ravenclaw dragon O.O  oh my thor it took so long)

 

EDIT:  im just going to write the explamation here.  i can change it if its unacturate or something like that ^^

 

Firefawk sat hunched over in a bush, his little golden orb clasped tightly in his clawed hands.  It was a cold day, & even his fire seemed barely anything against the howling wind.  He squeaked when he heard some voices.  big voices.  He liked to pretend he was big, but humans were HUGE.  Firefawk huffed & snorted out a plume of steam.  Why did he have to be the size of a small housecat?  

 

He curled up tighter around his orb & layed his claws over his snout.  The voices got louder.  Friefawk grumbled & used both claws to cover his ears.  These humans were getting unbearable.  Maybe he could scare them off.  But then again he was tiny.  Why did everything revole around size?  Suddenly a beam of light shot out of no where and struck him in the chest.  The jolt acted like a lightning bolt & send waves of energy rocketing through his body.  He fell backward from the force & gripped his ball tightly in his claws.

 

What was going on?  The energy kept getting stronger, & now that he was holdin his ball the energy went into that too.  It started glowing like the golden sun.  Suddenly everything around him began to shrink & he started going up, & up, & up, untill he was as big as the stone wall.  He yawned a big gapping yawn as if he had been sleeping for centuries, then lowered his neck down to the humans.  He scoffed.  "Ha!"  he thought.  "These humans aren't as big as i thought.  And they look so puny and terrified!  Why was i afraid of them before?"  He sucked in a deep breath, then roared as loud as he could muster.

 

The humans dropped their wands & ran, screaming inside the walls of the fortress.  Firefawk spread his now big and majestic wings.  He grinned a big, toothy grin.  "This is perfect!  Oh how i'm going to love being bigger then a human!"  he looked downward, scooped up his now much bigger & better golden orb, & took off lumbering through the bushes.  "Just wait till i show everyone how big i am!  This is just perfect!"

 

Jist of the story.  New wizards were fooling around with their wands outside the school walls.  One shot into the bush & bing bam boom, theres a big dragon XD  is that good enough?

Ehh sure. I'll say they were trying to transfigure the bush, since that's the only type of magic I can think of that would have that sort of effect on Firefox. 

 

Congrats!

 Name:SalazarAge:900Gend

 

Name:

Salazar

Age:

9

Gender: (Optional)

Male

Personality: (1 paragraph minimum)

Salazar LOVES to sleep. He sleeps almost constantly, and when he's awake, he's grumpy, arrogant, and acting high-and-mighty. He also loves food. When he's not sleeping, he's probably eating. The only person he trusts is his owner, Khazah. Even though he's pretty small for his size, he acts as large as a Hungarian Horntail.

Backstory: (2 paragraphs minimum)

Khazah looked around the Slytherin common room with disgust. She hated it under the lake. It was cold, dark, and you could always hear the Giant Squid moaning nearby. ​I wish the common room was at least in a cave or something. It's too creepy under here.​ She loved the open air of the lakeside, even though Slytherins were supposed to be dark and brooding and hateful.

She got up from the h.ard chair and stomped out. Walking through the hallways, she went to the Great Hall and got Draco Malfoy, her best/boyfriend. They walked out to the Black Lake, holding each other's hands. As they talked about thair classes and how much they disliked Snape, a bush quivered on their left. They jumped back, Draco pushing Khazah behind him.

"Draco, what is that?" she asked.

"I don't know." he replied. He pulled his wand out of his robes, and pointed it at the bush.

"Stupefy!"

A small thud.

They walked up to the bush and parted the leaves. Under it was a silver and green dragon, small as a cat and clutching a small ball. Draco picked it up and cradled it.

"Can't just leave it here, can we?"

​I love it when he shows his caring side, he's so sweet to me and cold to others..

​They walked back up to the castle, into Draco's dorm, and onto his bed, where they waited for the dragon to wake up.

"Hey, it has Slytherin colors. What are you gonna name it?" Draco asked.

"Salazar."

Extra:

​I would like the Slytherin dragon.

Rejected.

 

With the personality, you have the same problem as VoSpader, who I rejected earlier. It doesn't flow well and tells me more about the dragon's likes and dislikes than actual character traits. 

 

The backstory... Geez, just no. First of all, it talks all about your character without even MENTIONING the dragon at all until the end, and even then you just seemed to toss the dragon in as an afterthought. I didn't read about how the dragon acted, his response to you, or anything. Second of all, your character has a relationship with a canon character, which is unessesary and also a big no-no for me. Just... Did you throw a random story together? Did you even think about this? I know I'm being harsh, but... Really? 

 

You're welcome to try again.

On stupification: that's the point, see- you stupified the dragon and gave it little to no thought in the story. The fact it couldn't react to her is what made it dull. I didn't get to read about the dragon at all, and the dragon should be the main character in the dragon's backstory. It shouldn't just be stupified at the end and then the rest of the events (taming, training, etc) be left up to the imagination of the reader.

Hiding in the Newtcase

 

Name:

Salazar

Age:

7

Gender: (Optional)

Male

Personality: (1 paragraph minimum)

Gruff, cold, haughty, uncaring. He isn't very kind to people he doesn't trust. He doesn't care about many things except for his golden orb, which he keeps polished so he can stare at himself all day. There could be people Avada Kedavra-ing everywhere and he would still look at his reflection. He only sleeps on Khazah's scarf.

Backstory: (2 paragraphs minimum)

LET'S TRY THIS AGAIN SHALL WE?!

 

Khazah looked around the Slytherin common room with an exasperated sigh. ​Why is it so cold in here? A dragon's fire would freeze, ​she thought. She rubbed her arms, shivering.

"I'm going for a walk," she said to Draco, her best friend. A lot of people looked down their nose at her for being friends with him, but what they didn't know is that their parents had all gone to school together and had been best friends as well.

"I'll come with you." he replied.

They walked out the common room door, into the hallway. It was still slightly chilly, but that was to be expected. It was winter, after all. Christmas Eve, to be exact. They walked through the hallways and down the ever-changing staircases to the school courtyard. Going to the Black Lake, they walked along the shore, their feet crunching the thin layer of ice over the snow. They looked at each other deviously, a mischevious* glint in their eyes. They lurched to opposite sides of each other, grabbing handfuls of snow and throwing them at each other.

About half an hour elapsed before Draco finally got Khazah down her back with a big snowball. Shrieking, she tried to hit him with one, but it flew past him into the trees, hitting with a muffled squeak. Wait, a squeak?​ They inched towards the tree as the lower branches quivered slightly. A silver-and-green tail emerged, and after it followed shining silver scales that covered the body of this strange creature, interrupted with the same green on the tail. After the head was shaken free, Khazah realized it was a cat-sized dragon, that strangely clutched an ornate golden ball with its front feet. She gasped, and upon hearing the noise, it whipped around and stared at her with unblinking eyes. It hissed, and let loose a burst of white fire that singed her hair. It flew straight at them, barely missing Khazah's pompom-topped Slytherin hat.

"Salazar, come back!" she yelled.

"You've already named it?" Draco stared at her like she was crazy.

"Um, DUH!"

She chased after the tiny dragon, eventually getting it to fly into one of the hallways of the castle. "Someone catch it!" she yelled.

"Accio...DRAGON?" a voice yelled. The dragon shot towards a classroom door and hands reached out and grabbed it. A sleeping spell was uttered, and the dragon slipped into a deep sleep. As they reached the classroom door, Harry Potter handed Khazah the dragon.

"Oh... Thanks, Potter." Khazah didn't exactly like Harry, but she didn't hate him like Draco did.

"No problem."

~~~~

She took the dragon back to the common room and into her dormitory before it woke up. When it did, it looked around, then at her, and it got a contented look on its face. It layed its head back down onto its paws and fell back asleep.

"Welcome home, Salazar."

Extra:

​its obviously the slytherin dragon...

 

 

did i do good enough this time?

@Archery and Dragons

Good job with the personality. Much better. 

 

On the story... I don't like the fact that you have canon characters in your story... But I guess I'll let it go. However, the end portion there is very much magical taming. In your personality, you claimed he 'wasn't very kind to people he didn't trust'. Well, you kinda threw snow at him, chased him into the castle, and then cast a sleeping spell on him. Realistically, he wouldn't just wake up and be your friend. 

 

So here's the deal- Rewrite the ending. Make it more of a challenge to gain his trust. BUT, don't just have him back into a corner and hiss and then give him food or something. I want something more original. Maybe have him flee into the snow and track him down or something. Have him get sick and weak and nurse him back to health. Have him get roudy and break a bone. Heck, just something realistic and original! 

 

Merry Christmas, and good luck with that ending.
