I actually think those names are AMAZING and and actually give you a better sense of the birds behaviours than their official names :P

I get what you mean. Still, some of those names actually don't sound bad at all. Penguins would be so much cooler if they were called Icewings. And the name Snugglewing just makes me want to hug it :3

I see how these could work though. Lets simplify the birds so we won't have to go around trying to think of an uncensored name for small birbs and blue-footed boobies ever again.

AUUUUGH.

Chewing gum. Oh dear, lady sitting opposite me on the train, it doesn't matter how much makeup you have on or how perfect your hair is. Sitting there chewing gum with your mouth open makes you look... I was going to say "like a dumb cow chewing the cud" but that's insulting to bovines, who as we already discussed are quite intelligent and usually chew pretty quietly and neatly, at least compared to you. Also please put it in the bin when you are done so that it doesn't get stuck to someone's shoe and end up on the carpet of a shop where someone like me will have to clean it up.

If I was given the power to ban one thing, just one thing, and wipe it from the face of this world forever, I would have great difficulty choosing between smoking and chewing gum. I know for the good of the world's health it ought to be smoking, but my loathing for gum possibly goes deeper than my loathing for cigarettes.

 

Personality tests in online job applications. I wonder how many perfectly good candidates your computer has rejected today because they did not enter exactly the right things in the right order in your weird how-would-you-react-in-this-situation-there's-no-right-answer-but-there-is-really test. Maybe if you actually had a person look at the applications instead of letting a machine decide for you you'd think differently. On the other hand, maybe I am better off not working for a firm that thinks a computer is the best judge of human character. I dunno.

I can't stand people chewing gum too close to me. It sets off my sensory issues to see and hear it for some reason. On the flip side I do love the taste of gum which I don't chew in public because otherwise I would be a hypocrite considering how much I can't stand other people chewing it when they are too close to me. If I had a dollar for each time during school where I had to ask if I could move because there was a gum chewer at my table I would be able to buy something quite fancy. Even more so for just the times where I had to put a hand up to block a gum chewer from my vision who happened to be sitting right in the line of sight it took to look towards the teacher. I spent a lot of time just looking at the table and listening with my ears too. Gum chewers were not the only reason for this behavior but they were a big one.

Art is my pet peeve. Or actually, me doing art. Me seeking time for art.... JOBS. Art jobs... Jobs in general. Ugh.

 

I know that I'm declining, and I know that I need to practice but with my current job giving me hardly any free time and the low pay and all- I don't even care that much about computer stuff in that way, even though I'm a technician. The whole subject matter isn't at all that interesting. The pay is enough for me to buy myself a €10 gift once every few months, IF I actually sacrifice stuff like meats from my diet.

 

I should update my portfolio and go for a pixel pusher job. I had a cool opportunity but I haven't heard anything back from the CEO. I've been told that he's super busy but you can't just let people wait for weeks, man. It's not how it works.

I just feel like the less art I do, the less art I'll feel like doing. I know I can be good but I'm usually too tired or lazy to either finish or polish something. So here's that. Plus, I need time to finish things. I have no time. I go to work, I go home, I eat, browse the net and sleep. Fun times. My boss always complains about how I shouldn't party too much in the weekend because I'm always tired and sick in the beginning of the week (I do NOTHING during the weekend. He doesn't believe me), or that "my boyfriend needs to take his own responsibilities" because I had to carry him to a doctor in a completely different province because he was too sick to breathe, while being sick myself.

I mean, sorry for not actually having anyone else nearby who can help? What am I supposed to do? Leave him at home with a 39 degree fever? I think not. I have no car, he has no car. All I have is my moped. Driving him to the doctor took an hour, after which I blacked out myself.

 

I swear that if I can find someone who is willing to drive their car over my foot I'll let them do it. No one wants to because "muh insurance". Which is a good reason not to mutilate my leg, actually.  Still.

I just need that single step towards being COMPLETELY unfit for work. I suffer from so many stupid things it's ridiculous. None of the things are terminal or potentially so, but bad enough for me to be in tired and in pain all day long. Feels bad, man. I'd love to work but I'm technically unfit to do so, but I need the money to pay rent. I just get more and more tired each and every day, and I really need a new job because my boyfriend's job is killing him. He got offered a job as a game programmer and I keep pushing him to take it. He'd make less money but he'd get access to bonuses for every game thing released or so.

I just need some job that pays a decent wage but for every job I apply for, I'll have at least 60 competitors.

 

So here it is, another peeve: being a dang adult.

I feel for you. I got made redundant recently. I'm having a tough enough time getting anything and I don't have a million things which limit what I can do, so it's got to be ten times tougher for you.

 

Your current boss sounds horrible and might actually be breaking EU disability discrimination law if he's not making allowances for your ongoing conditions. Is there any organisation out there that can help you? Friend of mine with similar problems to yours got into her job through a help-disabled-people-into-work group, although it's possibly not much good finding out their name for you since we're in Britain. If nothing else they might be able to advise you on your rights.

 

That's not to say I've only been trying for six weeks... I've been trying to get out of this job for a year. I just got less fussy recently. But when you've applied for weekend jobs at the local supermarket and they won't get back to you even though you've been in retail full time for seven years... ugggh. And then you get some computer rejecting you based on a stupid questionnaire without even checking your employment history, skills or qualifications... Like, I could do that censored job and do it well and your computer just wrote me off. Seriously.

 

All in all, I still prefer being an adult to being a teenager. Even when I'm really low, I wouldn't go back to that for the world.

Getting a job is hard. I just got off the phone with a Japanese lady and I think she invited me for an interview? It's delivery though so I'll probably make close to nothing.

I usually just lie about my conditions. It's not like I say that I have nothing, I just don't mention anything at all. I'll tell them if they ask me, sure...

My boss is a friendly feller. We're just real short on people and I'm the only one doing repairs whereas the others do administration and such. I'm pretty needed so I understand that he's upset, but dang. 

 

In Britain, everything regarding disabilities and health care is chill, but in my country it's not. If I were to be considered 'unfit for work', it can only be for a 6 months. and I'll get 75% of my salary. After that, my 'salary' will be lowered each month 'til it's gone. It's intended for re-integration, and I understand why, but what about people who can't reintegrate? I wonder...

You don't get much help as a less able-bodied person here if your conditions aren't visible. I was in minimal welfare for 2 years with no help and zero job offers. They kept pushing me to get a 'real job' because apparently I am 'too smart for disabled people jobs' or something, but they didn't help me in that regard either. I can't compete against hundreds of people, what the heck.

Back to the whole visible disability thing- my cousin of thirty-something broke his widdle arm and got full payouts for YEARS. And now he's working a super well-paying job for disabled people. Here I am on the brink of poverty because I sometimes need a cane to walk, 13 hours of sleep a day, suffer from chronic pain and clinical depression but hey, what's not visible doesn't exist.

It's not that I'm saying that society owes me, but dang, if I could work 40h a week, I would.

 

Supermarkets NEVER get back to you. Ever. It's a rule. It's a fact. Actually, hardly ANYONE gets back to people, no matter how qualified you are. Here we don't use computers, we just use motivations and resumes, but nah, they won't even /read/ the e-mails. I always have receipts enabled, and hardly ever have I received one.

We're too old, mang. Too old. Our payout is too high. Even if we're the most qualified people out there, there will be a younger and cheaper applicant who gets the job.

 

Make me a teenager any day. I know exactly what to go to college for so I can become rich and careless. I picked the wrong career when I was 15, and now I have to pay ad live in eternal regret because I picked a possible future I liked, instead of one that makes money.

I can't say my life is as h.ard as yours but I can say that I understand fully how bad it can be when your country's disabled people helping systems act like invisible disabilities don't exist. I have autism. (Technically ausbergers but at some point they decided just to throw that in with the rest of autism so now I just have autism) I might not be in physical pain all the time or have as h.ard a life as you but I do understand and have encountered that "if we can't see it it's not there" mentality. It is one of the most frustrating things to deal with when you have a problem and no one else believes you have a problem. It is even worse when they think you are just making a fuss.

Ah yeah, autism. The longer I've been on this planet, the more I think I might actually be autistic hahaha. I just have a lot of other things that fall within the spectrum iirc (stuff like mad OCD, anxiety and such). It'd make sense it it were all because of autism instead of just... random? Maybe I should get myself checked because autistic people are the few people who can get help here. I wouldn't want a 'fake diagnosis' just to get a job though.

 

Yeah mental issues are awful. If it's not visible, it's not there. (goes for my physical stuff too tho, but I can take off a sock and prove that my foot is messed up in that case, for instance.) "how can you be depressed" people ask me like- I don't know? What's a good reason? I never tell people about my mental issues because they'll laugh it off saying stupid things like "you have no right to be depressed b/c SOMETHING", or the uneducated "but people in AFRICA". Sorry m8 it's literally a physical thing in my brain anyway so w/e. 

Even my boyfriend didn't understand until depression hit him as well. Now he is supper supportive, but I still don't talk to him about it too much in fear that I'll scare him haha. Talking about his issues is a good thing though, as it's sort of a coping mech for me as well :þ

 

Invisible illnesses, mang. I'm glad that they can actually make them visible using brain scans now, but I absolutely do not want to know how expensive those are!

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

I wouldn't actually call my Autism awful. I would call how people deal with it awful. Like, you know, being expected to think like a nurotypical person and being taught the way nerotypical people are taught despite different parts of my brain maturing at different times than nurotypicals. Also, being put in an environment not suitable for someone with sensory issues is a massive problem. Of course, I can't speak for every case as every case of Autism is different but for me the Autism itself isn't the problem. The problem is that I don't exactly fit into the world the same way other people do. Still, a diagnosis is a huge help as I can actually explain to some extent why I am so weird. I would suggest that if you can get tested for Autism go ahead and do it. Don't let the fact that you hadn't had a diagnoses for Autism before make you hesitant. A lot of those tests are based on males (or at least have been for a long time) so a lot of girls go through them unnoticed. You might have been missed or something in the past so although I agree that a false diagnoses isn't a good idea there's no harm in double checking.

 

 

Now on another note. When will people learn that telling someone who is not well that there are worse off people out there to try and make them feel better just makes them feel worse? That seems to be a really common issue. It must be really infuriating too. I almost feel like it should be covered in school during health class or psychology. Just so more people know not to do that.

I wouldn't call Autism an illness, personally. It's... difference. Different points of view, different thoughts, different talents, a different way of seeing things. And even though it carries a lot of negative things, it carries so many positive things as well. Depression, anxiety, psychoses; that's awful stuff. That's what I meant with illnesses. I'm sorry that it came over wrongly.

 

Tests like that are super expensive. I don't think I can afford that anytime soon. 

I'm personally very much into real diagnoses, but only to make sure if the suspicions are right. I was officially diagnosed with many nasty things that are untrue, and I actually had those diagnoses removed from my file for it would have ruined my life. Still, official diagnoses are helpful, but don't be 100% sure about them unless there's a chance they can prove it in some way. Like those nifty brain scans they have these days. They tend to be petty accurate? right? I don't know. I'll google.

 

There's always someone who's worse off! Well, there's always someone who is having the worst time of all, and yeah, the chance that it'd be me is incredibly low. When the person who made the stupid remark is having a bad day, I'll tell them that "the poor kids in Africa" have it much worse than them. Revenge is sweet. They usually stop making dumb remarks after that :þ Otherwise I'll keep doing it.

Woah.

I gotta admit, that's harsh, but I don't know where this idea that benefits are amazing in Britain and everyone gets a free ride comes from (actually I do - that would be Mr. Murdoch and his empire of evil.) My friend might have gotten into a job, but plenty of others don't, and she says herself she'd never have gotten it without help. I know someone else who is near-blind from an inoperable brain tumour, has umpteen other problems (several of which require major surgery) and still somehow doesn't qualify for disability benefits. The current Government are certainly determined to make things worse. But that will turn into another peeve if I'm not careful :D

 

Being 15 was flipping awful for me, and it wouldn't be worth re-living it to change anything. I picked the wrong degree at the end of it all, sure, but I'm rubbish at all of the things that seem to actually make money anyway (save maybe law, I could possibly have done law...) And uni was brilliant, literally the best time of my life so far, and I met the guy I'm marrying on my course, so I wouldn't change that either. Do the worst bit again and lose the best bit so far for money? Nah. You can keep that time machine for yourself ;)

They're amazing in Britain compared to the Netherlands. I have a friend in England who literally gets money for being autistic, and more money for every symptom he has like his OCD. He can pay for college and a home with that, and that's pretty tight!

Still, I admit that no health care system is perfect. The system in the Netherlands is just very, very VERY far from being at least decent.

But dang, that's rough for that person. How do they not qualify for the disable bux? If people with autism qualify, why not a (legally?) blind person with many, many problems? Odd. What are they supposed to do in the working world anyway? Better leave that to the people who are both willing & CAN do a job instead of making someone who has no say in anything suffer.

 

Ohh you do have a point! I also met lifelong friends and my boyfriend in college, started a company with them for a while and has LOTS of fun. Then again, my future is non-existent the way I look at it now. I wouldn't trade in my friends for anything, but I still regret not picking an obvious course that makes obvious money. ...Like law... Indeed. Most law jobs are just memorising the book. Though, with my high school level I wouldn't have qualified for law school anyway. 

At least I met the love of my life during -snickers- game design college. (I still laugh when I think of it like-- game design college? WHAT? Was I serious???)

Good for your friend - I'm glad to hear the system is working for somebody! That's why I pay my taxes, not so that they can start more wars and build duck houses.

 

I can't remember their exact excuse for not giving her benefits, but I suspect it's really because she still lives with her parents. It seems like if you have someone they can pass the buck onto then they will.

 

I guess you got IT skills, at least? I did archaeology XD It was fun, but since the recession it's a total non-starter career wise. Seriously, when I went into uni heritage was a growth area. Difficult to believe now :(

Pfft, I wish tax money here was spent well. We have this stupid reputation of 'helping poor countries' aka giving money to dictators so they can buy weapons. Aiggghttt.

 

Maybe! My friend lives on his own, so maybe that's why he gets some money. Still, whether someone has parents or not shouldn't matter at all that much. They should at least do an income check and see whether the parents can afford whatever the child needs. I was also duped because my father used to be very rich but I hadn't seen the man in 13 years, nor did he give me anything. It took me like 5 years to erase him from my file haha- and now I live on my own anyway so it dun' matter. Wasted time and effort haha.

I hope your friend gets some help at least, or that she has wealthy parents who are able to afford things for her :0

 

My IT skills that aren't sought for that much. I'm a mechanic/technician. All people want are programmers and webdesigners! :þ

Archaeology sounds like a blast though. I considered going for palenteology but I thought to myself "I ain't going to get a job with that" so I went for gamedesign instead, so the joke's on me anyway. 

It's too bad because the super specialised things are the most fun, but getting a job in such a field is hardly doable.

I have a favourite place called Hayashi De. It means "Near- or in the Forist" iirc. It's run by a super traditional Japanese man with his wife. He even wear the robes and the headbands, it's so fun to watch. I don't know his name but he doesn't mind the nickname "Mr. Ando" I gave him. It's a pun on a weird thing called Mr Ando of the Woods. I thought it was fitting.

 

He makes the best traditional stuff. No weird 'California rolls' business. Though I tried the Sushi place next door and it was pretty great! I even managed to eat temaki, which I never really did before. I might order from there from now on because I don't have to pay delivery costs LOL

SoD, why must you interfere when all I want is Ginny Weasley!

When I save up to buy a dream stable just so I have enough room to hatch my fourth Nadder. I waited and waited, then I bought it, and I was so excited. I had planned on naming this Nadder Ginny ever since I got the egg, and guess what?

"YOU CANNOT USE THIS NAME BECAUSE IT CONTAINS NUMBERS OR SYMBOLS. PLEASE PICK SOMETHING ELSE."

I am so ANGRY! I wanted to have a Nadder named Ginny, and then I was gonna get another boy named Harry and my life would be perfect. But no! Apparently Ginny isn't an acceptable name! I tried Ginerva, which is her full name, and then I could just call her Ginny. But Ginerva wasn't acceptable either. And so now guess what I had to do?

Make it a boy and name it Gryffindor. 

I had no other option. I am so mad.

I wanted to call my Night Terror Ginny. LOLNOPE. I've been allowed to use Hermione, Luna (although I regret that one and want to change it, name does not suit dragon) Molly and Hedwig, so it's not that there's a copyright issue with names from the HP franchise.

 

I've given up and come up with alternate spellings for the list of rejected names I've compiled (11 so far, all "normal"  person names). I'm gonna get them in somehow. Mostly because otherwise I'm gonna get to the point where I've got more eggs than usable names.

Good idea. That probably is the best thing to do. Idk why Ginny is so offensive to them though. It's an adorable name.

Maybe because it's got the word "Gin" in it. Though Ginny is basically a nickname for "Ginger", so maybe people could consider naming their dragons that instead. Or even spelling it another way like "Jinny". For whatever reason the game seems to block very specific names whereas you can type nonsense names or names from other languages that it doesn't recognise. Quite silly.

Edit: I originally wrote the name as " Dji.nny" and the forum censor changed it to "Skinny". Lol! Guess Dji.nn is no good either.

Kids flying with their parents.

Dear Parents,

 

Please teach your children that each seat in the aeroplane is designed to be sat on and should not be thought of as a makeshift bed for your kids.

 

On one of my recent flights, a kid sat next to me. As it was a night flight, I try to get some sleep as it was a long haul flight. Well, the kid next to me slept horizontally on the seat. She kicked me 26 TIMES!! It was really frustrating as her mother, who was sitting at the end of my row, didn't do anything to solve the situation at all. After being kicked for the 5th time, I gave the mother a piece of my mind. The kid was about 4-7 years old.

 

Yes, I know you have a child. But, the seat was not designed to be slept on horizontally. Sadly, she could barely communicate in English.

 

Sigh, Parents......get a hold on your kids.

 

Anyone encountered this before??

I'm not very much a plane traveller, but I do encounter stuff like this in public transport... Especially in buses.

It's VERY obnoxious. Luckily, kids find me to be really scary so all I need to do is cast a death glare. If that doesn't work I'll literally go to their parents and tell them to learn how to raise a child. Plain and simple.

 

Some go full on 'tokkie' on me, but I can outdo them, I will always out-tokkie them. I will insult them,  their parenting, their parents and their choices. I will insult it all.  (not the kid though, unless it's old enough to know what it's doing. Then again, I wouldn't use profanity unless I know the kid already does so anyway.) Is the mum pregnant with another little demon spawn baby? Ohh.. OHHH.. o hohoho. They gon' get it. They will leave. Everyone on the bus will be happy I rid the vehicle of a screaming, kicking child that had hissy-fits, and I was able to blow off some steam.

I'm usually a nice person when I'm outside, but if there is something I cannot stand, it's a child that is kicking, screaming or just being generally obnoxious while the parents do NOTHING. Get a pet rock or something. Not a child.

 

What I also hate is when a baby soils its diapers in the bus. I know they can't help and neither can its parent, it but if the trip to the centre takes at least half an hour more- ugh. Get out. GET OUUUUT. Please get out, go to a baby station and change your baby. Please do not let your smelly turd gas up the bus so nobody can breathe. Please don't be rude. Nobody wants to sit in your abysmal smell.

Sure, if the weather is gross and cold and rainy, I can understand... I might throw up but hey, the stank is unbearable anyway so it won't matter anymore :B

 

Sometimes they do pull the language thing, yes. I'm lucky to know English, so whenever they tell me they don't speak Dutch, I'll switch to English. >:) I can also switch to choppy French, German and Japanese as long as I'm out to make someone feel bad about themselves.

A earlier comment reminded me of this.

 

 

 

When someone is kicking your seat. Be it in the movie theater, in a car or anywhere else. I absolutely HATE that. I will often sit in the back seat of a car just to make sure no one can do that.

I think Khan crushed my subject under his claws.

Yep, me too. Especially if it's a whining little kid or someone talking very loudly and I hear every word while I'm trying to read my favorite book for the umpteenth time. Which is kinda weird considering that I'm just about a teen myself xP

BUT NO ONE SHOULD DARE TO INTERRUPT A STORY I'VE READ MORE TIMES THAN I CAN COUNT!

If you do, I will call my dragons on you...

Beware...

Pietercat cried during graduation. ;_;

When a person next to you cries during the graduation song. I understand that you will miss your closest friends, your teachers, your classroom, and the classes, but you can cry after the song. And I'm not used to crying onstage, so don't make me weep uncontrollably.

The last sentence literally just happened. O.O

This subject fills me with Determination

- When people post links to jumpscares on April Fools Day

Like, can you not? They're not funny in the slightest, it may be amusing for the one posting it but it's not funny for the ones who clicked on it. Just stick with Rick Rolls or something, yes they're overused but at least they won't give someone a heart attack.

I love rick rolls just because they're so harmless. Jump Scares can really mess people up. I personally find them boring.

A well-executed rick roll is the best stuff. Unfortunately not many people know the meaning of subtlety.

A Few More

Claiming a dragon won't work scientifically. The reason this irks me is not because it's wrong but because people use this just to pick on dragons they don't like, when in fact none of the dragons in this franchise work scientifically and you could pick on any dragon in this franchise this way. "The Thunderpede shouldn't be able to fly." None of the dragons should be able to fly, darling, due to flying conventions of vertebrates. "The Skrill is not aerodynmaic." Many dragons said to be fast are not aerodynamic, my dear, from the Typhoomerang to the Shockjaw. Try again. "How can a dragon possibly breathe ice?" How does a dragon breathe magnesium fire? I'm not sure what the problem is here. If you don't like a dragon, you don't need to point out how it doesn't work scientifically to justify yourself. You're allowed to not like the dragon, and I really don't mind if your opinion differs from mine. They're just made-up fantasy creatures. But trying to justify your choice scientifically just seems conceited and...frankly, a little bit ignorant. Next time you try to cut down on a dragon scientically, remember that your favorite dragon can also be broken down in a similar fashion.

 

Saying the Snow Wraith is less aerodynamic than the Skrill. (I'm not picking on any one person; I've seen at least five people make this argument. Otherwise, I wouldn't think of it as a peeve.) It's one thing to try to pick and choose the science you want to justify liking or disliking a dragon, but it's just painful when the science is blatantly wrong. The Snow Wraith may not look that great, but it is basically one long tube with rounded edges and spines that lie flat against it. Meanwhile the Skrill, while it does less bumps, has long spines that stand up like little individual sails and huge hump, all of which add significant wind resistance. If you built a model Snow Wraith and a model Skrill and tucked the wings against the body of each and then threw them like a dart, the Snow Wraith will travel much farther and straighter than the weirdly-sharped Skrill. Sorry to say, the Snow Wraith is more aerodynamic. Does it matter that the Skrill wouldn't be as aerodynamic? No, of course not! As established above, none of these dragons are scientifically accurate, so what should that matter? But if you're going to be "that person" and try to pick on the Snow Wraith specifically with science, at least pick something accurate. The Snow Wraith's wing placement means it has no room for any flight muscles. Those wings are far too short and thin to keep it in the air, much less give it thrust. How the heck is it supposed to tunnel through ice? It has no features that indicate this ability. There's plenty of accurate stuff you can use to pick on the Snow Wraith. But this? This isn't one of them.

 

Sleet. You're not rain, you're not snow...can't you just pick one?!

I can't help but feel like

I can't help but feel like this is specifically directed at me and my recent topic on this matter and I don't really appreciate this passive-aggressive diatribe. My issue with the Snow Wraith and Thunderpede are not down to what is scientific, they are down to design sense and plausibility. Ive made that quite clear and you continuebto harp on the acience of things. In Animation and film-making we do tons of stuff that is not scientifically accurate, but it must not seem implausible or it breaks the suspension of disbelief. I have been able to accept every dragon's flight except the Thunderpede's. I simply can't believe that it can fly with its wing size and placement. Even if it could fly, the way it flies in the game makes no sense at all, either. It's backside should be hanging if it is being held up by wings at its shoulders at the very least. It breaks my suspension of disbelief to see it fly the way it does.

You're extremely defensive of the Snow Wraith, to the point that you almost seem to take it as a personal insult if someone dislikes anything about the dragon's design. It's fine to like the dragon, lots of people do. I'm just as entitled to take issue with its design without the implication that I'm being conceited and ignorant because none of the dragons make sense scientifically. Again, it is a matter of design sense and aesthetic over science. It's okay that you think the dragon communicates speed in its design, but that doesn't mean the rest of us should be quiet because we disagree. Feel free to break down my favourite dragons' design and I will be happy to argue otherwise from a design sense rather than a scientific one. Please be mindful of the fact that your Snow Wraith is a fictional creature, but the people you're calling conceited and ignorant are very much real people with real feelings.

*confused*

No, it was not meant to be direct at you specifically at all, like I said in my post, nor is it meant to be a specific attack. I'm sorry you feel that way. In fact, I didn't even remember any comment you've made on the Thunderpede. And the Snow Wraith thing is because I've seen it several times, not just from you. In fact, until you left this post, I didn't remember that it was you specifically who I even had the latest conversation with about the Snow Wraith. I was more talking about things in general. I'm the type who will talk with someone directly if I have a problem with anyone specific, so don't you worry a bit about that.

 

I don't mind if someone dislikes the design. I really don't. I'm more defensive of people a) insulting people who like and/or the dragon (which is different than insulting the dragon itself and something you, specifically, have never done to my knowledge), and b) people being inaccurate about things from a scientific standpoint. The Snow Wraith isn't the only dragon that I've done this for; it's just the one that people seem the most hostile to, so I guess my corrections are taken with a bit more heat. It's also been the most discussed dragon that I've seen this type of behavior toward recently.

 

Now as for the design itself, as I said before, we agree on the wing position. I don't like the way the Snow Wraith looks. I just happen to like the dragon despite the way it looks. But it doesn't bother me if people don't like it all. Like I said above, it's just being accurate about how one justifies themselves that bothers me, and it's really more of a small peeve than anything. When someone says something incorrect scientifically, it's just like poking a pin in my side that says, "But wait. That's...not...right." Like if someone tried to tell me that lemmings commit suicide or other misnomers. I'm too blunt, I guess, because it's hard for me to keep quiet with that. I'm not defensive of the Snow Wraith; I'm defensive of scientific accuracy. I don't care if people don't like the design, but trying to say incorrect things about any dragon's design does both me because...they're incorrect. It's more of a "matter-of-fact" thing. So I think you're applying some sort of viciousness or anger that I really don't have, and I'm sorry if you've ever gotten that impression.

When you see an odd-colored

When you see an odd-colored dragon- say, an orange Skrill, or a purple sand wraith, no one cares. If you have an odd-colored Nightfury, everyone starts telling you that it's unrealistic. Why is it only Nightfuries that have to be canonically accurate? This annoys me.

Nightfury OCs in general are starting to get annoying. Nearly everyone has one as their main OC, and the franchise spends a huge amount of time rubbing in your face how amazingly powerful Toothless is- and how he's the last of his kind. And, well, it's just so terribly common. I think some other dragons need some love for a change...

And this brings me to another thing that annoys me: some roleplays do not allow Nightfuries, and someone always walks in with a black sand wraith.
