Take however long you need, there's no rush ^_^
(I only bumped the thread so that the Rollers that are still available could be seen XD)

Finally

Roller Number: #1-Brown One

Name: SmashSnout

Gender: Male

Personality: Crabby. Likes to act like he's in control and the dominant creature, but really he gives in and "allows" petting and such because he actually likes it. Likes his berries a little too much, which allows Diggr to train him. Tolerant of some dragons and very few humans.

Backstory: http://httydfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Diggr_Margrkind

Where will you put the Roller? : The Roller will go on the story page listed above, then linked to my siggie. Credit will be given to you at both locations. Let me know if this is not acceptable!

Thank you for adopting a Spike Roller! SmashSnout is now yours ^_^

 

I loved the backstory :)  It's a good story, and really helps to show SmashSnout's personality. It's also very realistic in terms of how he was actually tamed (well, as realistic as a story about dragons can possibly be XD ), and I love the fact that there's nothing in it that goes against the species info. It shows that you've paid close attention to that information, which is always good to see. That was a very creative use of his rolling ability as well! I'd never have even thought of doing that with a Roller. And the personality you gave him fits a Roller perfectly.

This is much, much more than anything I expected for a Normal Spike Roller. Thank you for putting so much effort into this, it is much appreciated! Take good care of him, and don't forget to give credit :)

(Sorry this took so long!  I was waiting  this and then my tablet got fussy and I lost it.......)

 

Form

 

Number:

7

 

Name:

Bowser

 

Gender:

Male

 

Personality:

stubborn, reserved, and kind.

 

Backstory:

Bowser used to live on a peaceful island not far away from berk.  He enjoyed it there, rolling through his flowering meadows all day long.  One day, humans came to his peaceful home and ruined his lovely flowers.  He was extremely am very, and drove them off.

 

Life was again peaceful.  He went back to rolling through his flowers all day.  But he began to feel lonely.  One day h  met another human.  He was about to drive it off too when he noticed it was different.  Instead of ruining his flowers, it was stopping and admiring them.

 

Bowser decided he liked this human.  Even though he didn't trust it, and he would never cozy up to the human, it was kind to his flowers.  And that was enough for him.

 

Where will I put him?:

In my adopted dragons thread

 

Hope this as enough!  (Btw, I'm also going to try for the birthday roller and number 3)

Hi :)  Thank you for applying for a Spike Roller!

The backstory is good for a Normal Roller, but it just seems like Bowser accepted the human being around a little too quickly. How long exactly did it take for him to decide that he liked them? Rollers don't like strangers, so the human would usually need to have either directly interacted with the Roller in some way to gain their trust, or they would have been hanging around enough for the Roller to start getting used to them. I do like the fact that he chased away the first group of humans, though. That fits in well with the Rollers' usual territorial behaviour. And I have to admit, him liking those flowers so much is a nice touch as well.

Also, just a reminder that Spike Rollers spend most of their time in rocky places. But they will go into grasslands to find food, so there's no problem with Bowser being in the meadows. It's just something to bear in mind :)

(You're so close to this being accepted, there's just something in the rules section I think you've forgotten ^^; )
