I'm on vacation! Yay! My family and I drove 16 hours to get to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. It's fun here, a bit too hot for my weird taste, but very fun nonetheless. And of course, who wouldn't welcome a week off from school? Not me!

 

Ok, so yesterday I went to the beach. It was super, super low tide, so the ocean had gone down basically as far as it could go. Unfortunately, this meant that the majority of the beach was sand. A short trip to the store later, I have flip flops, and though I still hate sand, it's much better than wearing sneakers and socks.

 

I'm taking a walk on the shore, and in the sand there's a perfect, completely intact shell. Huge, too. I wash it off in a tide pool, and it starts to move.  This happens four more times, until my hand is completely filled with squirming shells.

 

I'm still not completely sure what these little guys are called, but since they live in shells, in the sea, and look like snails, I have called them sea snails.

 

Look at the cuties!

From left to right, we have Flip, Scurvy, (Captain) Jack, and Leek.

Unfortunately, I had to throw them back in the ocean, because our rental house does not have the capabilities to take care of four sea snails.

Hi, I'm Stormstriker.
You can call me Storm, or Stormy.
Or even just “that weird girl with the color-coded signature”.
 
Some stuff about me:
I'm female (if you couldn't guess).
I love reading.
I do circus in my free time.
I hate math.
I don't really have a life.
I'm not very religious.
I procrastinate. Constantly.
 
And that last one’s a biggie. If I've ever not done something that I said I would, just send me a PM. It probably just got lost on the massive mountain known as Things I Need To Do. It terrifies even expert climbers.
 
With that said, I am taking drawing requests! Just dragons right now, but if you want an OC of yours drawn, I will likely happily draw it for you. Just one teensy little thing- no rave Night Furies. Please?
 
Currently drawing for:

I am not perfect. Please don't expect me to be perfect. I will disappoint you.
Thank you.
 
I'm a fangirl. And a shipper. Right now, I'm obsessed with Doctor Who, Merlin, Sherlock, Harry Potter, How To Train Your Dragon, Percy Jackson (and related), Warriors, various cartoons, and probably countless other things that I forgot to list.
 
I'm a proud Hufflepuff!
FBAWTFT is amazing, let me tell you. And Newt Scamander. ‘Nuff said.
 
Well, if you've kept going this far, then I guess that means I haven't bored you to death yet. Or maybe I have…
Anyway, now we get into some of the interesting stuff.

Copperblaze Freyhelm
(also known as ‘that former self-insert that somehow developed a personality’)
by Fireflash
Copperblaze grew up in the midst of the Dragon War, near-miraculously surviving and staying completely intact through the chaos of it. Not one for pessimism, she did her best to cheer the village up through something she learned early on: pranking. While certainly never able to rival the infamous twins, Copperblaze was soon regarded as one not to mess with unless that Viking wanted their best axe tied to the rear end of a particularly grumpy yak.
But don't get her wrong, she wasn't really a wild, raucous prankster. Well, okay, maybe a little. Or a lot, actually. Secretly a kind, quiet, and empathetic individual at heart, Copperblaze could often be found reading and drawing. Of course, that was when she wasn't doing her best to cause mayhem and laughter, which took up most of her time.
Then the chief’s son saved the village on a Night Fury, and the world turned upside down. Dragons… were the friends of Vikings now. Copperblaze could barely contain her excitement. So many new possibilities had opened up! And not just for pranking, either.
While her pranks had done their job to make the village an overall happier place, they sometimes ostracized her from others her age. Now, this was her chance: to form a strong, lasting bond, to have and give everlasting trust, to have real friends, for once in her life!
Sadly, dreams didn't always come true. Though Copperblaze was among the first to enroll at the newly-established Dragon Training Academy, no dragon there seemed… right for her. Nadders were too vain and flighty, and the Gronckles were too lazy and slow. Nightmares? Too fiery. And don't get her started on the Zipplebacks. That had not been a fun week. 
Even that time she'd been offered a Whispering Death egg, still nothing happened. No bond formed. No realization of ‘this is my best friend’. Well, she'd managed to develop a serious phobia of the species in general, but Copperblaze didn't like to talk about that. You know, at all.
Alone again, Copperblaze resigned herself to her grounded fate. Until one day, in an abandoned clearing in the middle of the woods, she encountered a young, purple Skrill… but that's another story...
 
...which can be found here!
 
 
Thanks so much, IrishMexicanViking! It's so awesome, I literally can't put it into words!
Seriously, read it. It's the best.
 
Raika
by Vanilia Viking
No one knows who Raika’s birth parents are, not even Raika herself. All she knows is that if the teal Stormcutter that raised her from the egg isn't her mother, then something's seriously wrong with the world.
An excitable hatchling, Raika was always bouncing from one thing to the next, curious about everything around her. Getting into all sorts of danger was her best skill, and she'd frequently ticked off older dragons in her frequent mischief.
Raika wasn't old enough to understand why her mother suddenly separated the pair from all contact with other dragons, but she certainly was old enough to understand that she didn't like it one bit. Chalking it up to Windchaser’s overprotectiveness, Raika did her best to convince her mother that the bigger dragons weren't going to harm her, but to no avail. Windchaser would not budge.
Then a Prickleboggle came across them one day, informing the pair excitedly that the War had ended and the Queen was dead. Raika was confused. Windchaser, wanting to shelter her from the terrible War, hadn't told her anything about it, other than Vikings should be avoided at all costs, and so should unfamiliar dragons.
Then, for the first time that Raika could remember, her mother willingly left her side, with instructions to stay put and to not go looking for trouble. But of course, Raika didn't follow that. Curious about what her mother was doing, she decided to secretly tail her. Windchaser knew her way through the thick fog that surrounded Dragon Island. The problem was, Raika didn't.
Lost and disoriented, the young Skrill landed on a Viking-inhabited island that she'd never seen before, needing to give her tired wings a rest. It was there that, in a clearing she thought was unoccupied, Raika met a young Viking girl- starting off a new generation of mischief-making that no one was prepared for.
 
Windchaser
by Vanilia Viking
The day Windchaser found an abandoned Skrill egg would change her life forever, but for better or for worse? Often, she wasn't quite sure.
Having escaped the rule of the tyrannical Queen, the Red Death, Windchaser had left behind everything she held dear, including her beloved mate and any chance for hatchlings of her own. So when one was given to her, out of the blue, the motherly Stormcutter couldn't have left it behind if she tried. 
She couldn't, no, she wouldn't, leave the egg to the horrible fate of growing up without a family. And small though the family was, Windchaser vowed to do her best to take care of the Skrill hatchling.
Unfortunately, that particular Skrill hatchling proven to be very hard to take care of. Raika was continually getting into trouble of all sorts, and it was all Windchaser could do to keep her at least marginally safe. And when the little dragon learned how to fly, all Helheim broke loose.
When word was received that the Queen was searching for her former subject back, a desperate Windchaser was forced to take them both into hiding, an act that she feared would crush her young daughter. While thankfully that was not the case, Raika’s naturally attention-seeking personality caused her to focus most of her attention to her mother. It was a good day when Windchaser didn't want to tear her wings off from the frustration, and those good days were rarely found.
When a Prickleboggle (generally trusted among dragons, no matter their loyalties) told Windchaser the news that the War was over and the Queen was dead, she was naturally shocked. The Queen was invincible, she couldn't have been killed- could she? Hopeful, but not willing to take the news for granted, she flew to see it for herself, ordering her daughter to stay behind and not get into any trouble.
Confirming the formerly wild statement, Windchaser was overjoyed. She couldn't wait to tell Raika that their self-imposed exile had ended, and went to tell her immediately.
So when Raika wasn't where she'd left her, Windchaser naturally flew into a panic. Frantically searching every empty island in the area, her search was turned toward some of the not-so-empty ones, eventually finding her wayward daughter- but in the company of a Viking? Windchaser’s motherly instincts kicked in. Who knew what that Viking would do to her hatchling?
Eventually, after much convincing from Raika, Windchaser was finally able to see Vikings as people just as much as dragons were. She was still protective of her daughter, but after warming up to some of the non-dragon inhabitants, was much more comfortable letting Raika spend time among them.
And of course, that Viking that Raika always hung around with was officially adopted into the family, too. With the amount of time those two troublemakers spent together- well. It'd be just silly not to.

Meet Stormy Eyes, otherwise known as Stormy. As a child, she washed ashore Berk in a basket, and was taken under the wing of the Jorgenson Clan. It quickly became obvious that Stormy has pure Berserker tendencies, and most often, they're rather uncontrollable. Really, she means no harm- but running around the school with an axe, especially early in the morning, tends to have an effect on certain students around the school.

When she first came to the School, after encouragement from her clan, Stormy was viewed as dangerous and untrustworthy. She was only a teenager at the time, but she worked hard to make it obvious that she was much different than her bloodthirsty ancestors- though she's more closely related to the Berserkers than she would like to know.

Stormy's first dragon was a Skrill called Hurricane- she raised him from hatching, and the two have been best friends ever since. You might say the dragon and rider grew up together, and as Stormy won the trust of her fellow classmates and dragon riders, she also became well known for her impressive bond with the sometimes unstable dragon. Life was a challenge for a young dragon trainer and a Skrill, especially as a first dragon, but their equally hyperactive personalities soon forged a bond between them, which is something not seen often between a Skrill and a rider.

Now, at the age of 20, Stormy has grown a reputation as one of the most bombproof students in the School, heading up her own strike team called the Valkyrie Riders, and defending her "home" for the past 8 years. In the course of those 8 years, however, Stormy made a shocking discovery, that forced her to keep a deadly secret for a long, long time.

But she kept that hidden for many years, and the only one she ever told was one of the newest teachers to the School, and later, one of her partners in "crime": Eret son of Eret, former servant of Drago Bludvist. But that's another story....

Dear writers: You know when your characters are having a good day, and then you crash their party with an awful plot twist and its SO MUCH FUN? Yeah, the feeling is kind of like this:

 Ruff and Tuff (Ruffnut

 

 

Squiid's Characters

Well, here's where I put all my RP and non-RP cinnamon rolls. Enjoy.

Eternally under construction, probably, since I procrastinate :D

 

Skari

A treasure hunter, a scoundrel, and a grave-robber; can you get much more untrustworthy than that? Well, Skari sure can. Unreliable and shifty, Skari uses his quick wit and charming personality to wriggle his way out of the toughest spots. He has a particular liking for shiny objects and is considered a thief-for-hire, occasionally, risking life and limb (though he's not overly fond of that). Once acquainted with him, you either realize right away he's not to be trusted- or, usually, you realize that much too late. On rare occasions, though, you can break open his heart of stone and find a soul of gold inside...well, I could be speaking literally or figuratively.

 

Lenora

You won't hear much about Nellie on these forums, since I never RP with her, but in the rare case I say something about her, it's probably her superb shooting skills. Mildly terrifying, but if you're on her side, it's quite useful. She's got a lively personality, loyal to a fault and completely, blatantly honest. Though I mentioned her loyalty, it's true she's loyal to one person- her boss, of whom she self-appointed herself his personal bodyguard. Needless to say, he doesn't really mind. Especially since he sort of needs one.

 

Finn

Ah, Finn. Used primly in magic/cyborg/or-anything-like-that RPs, Finn is an interesting case. With the ability to shapeshift into a dolphin at will, you might say his name is apt...ha! Get it? Finn? Okay, I'll leave now. Anyways, he also has a metal arm, of which he's modified to do various things with. And yes, when he shapeshifts into a dolphin, he has a metal fin. It's rather funny. He's a huge sweetheart, which isn't saying anything for his rather bad past, and he likes long swims in the ocean in his free time...

 

Iduna 

Who said the Grimborn boys didn't have any family? (Well, no one, exactly.) I can't really say much about Iduna without giving a bunch of Race to the Edge spoilers, but she's observant, gentle, and quiet; and, honestly, no one exactly knows how she ended up marrying Viggo Grimborn and keeping a close eye on all his operations Beyond the Archipelago. She seriously can be scary if she wants to. Beware.

 

More coming soon! Whee! -dances away from all my impending tasks-

 

 

And here is the best Hiccup gif I have ever found. Enjoy.

oh Hiccup sweetie what are you doing with your face??

A tribute to the fun personality-based choices you can make in Star Wars: the Old Republic.

I have two Sith Lord characters. One of them is sophisticated, collected, a devoted servant of the Sith Empire, and a really all around Viggo-style villain. The other is absolutely insane and defected from the Galactic Empire because they wouldn't let him have a pet Nexu. 

Meet Chayaraa Argos and Tavos Xan, the chaos and order of the Sith Empire.

Well, you survived to the end, and now you probably know way too much about me :D The more you know, right? No? Okay. Anyways...

May the Force be with you!

I KNOW, RIGHT?

Wow, I never thought I'd be fangirling over snails, of all things...

 

Now I know I'm not supposed to pick favorites, so shh. No telling 'em. Leek is my favorite, 'cause he's the most active and the smallest, so he's the baby; followed by Captain Jack, because, well, Jack. Then Flip, who's the biggest and the 'daddy', and I'm sorry, Scurvy, but, well, you're boring. You don't do much. I love you too, but playing dead does not make you the most interesting snail in the world, I'm sorry.

*burps*

Be careful, love. All species of cone snails {the kind you're holding} actually shoot venomous harpoons out of their mouth. They're like little hypodermic needles. They use the harpoons to paralyze prey, since they're carnivorous. It attacks the nervous system and even the smallest amount can shut down your body. Also, about 100 of the different toxin components in the venom are highly poisonous to humans. General rule of thumb- the larger the cone, the more dangerous it is. The ones you have would be more like being bit by a large house spider, but still. I'd prefer if you didn't handle them again, haha.

 

Just a warning.
They're cute but super dangerous.
Look, don't touch.

Wow, really? Yikes, that doesn't sound fun XD

 

Well, then, I guess 'snail-saving' won't be on my list of things to do next time we go to the beach, haha. Funny, though, none of these guys seemed particularly interested in biting. My dad actually poked the antenna (which was probably a supremely horrible idea now that I know this, lol) and all that happened was the antenna shrinking back like a slug's would.

 

EDIT: Just looked these up, apparently they're a species of snail called the lettered olive. None of the articles I saw, however, said anything about venom or stinging, or even listed it in the cone snail family.

Here's a pic I found off Google:

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

Cone snails do look a heck of a lot like that though. Maybe it's one of those harmless speacys that ether happens to look like or has evolved to look like a dangerous one things. On this note if you ever visit Australia you would never want to touch something with a shell like that there. That's where one of the nastiest cone snails live and it can k.ill a grown man in minutes. That speacys isn't where you are of course so don't get too freaked out but knowing about the really deadly ones kind of ruins the cuteness of these harmless ones for me. I can't not think of them any time I see a snail with the same shell shape. I don't even know why it freaks me out to the extent that it does. Watching videos of deadly snakes doesn't make me afraid of the harmless ones even if they look similar but these?.....Yup.

Hypergoof.

Seen here with a snow nadder and a statue Termite gave her because she couldn't sell it.

(Wiggles bit it's left arm off.)

Below is my profile pic made bigger to show the amazing detail

It's Hypergoof going berserk with a durian mace.

(Drawn by my amazing sister)

(She even drew the fur on the shoes)

            (My in game character)- A friendly young Viking who interacts better with dragons than with people. This is partly because although she now lives on Berk her family was originally from the Berserker tribe. When Dagger came to power Hypergoof, her sister and her parents were forced to flee as they were terrified of their new chief after he threatened to kill Hypergoof's parents for speaking out. The family found a new home on Berk. After working hard to get the Hooligans (what Hiccup's tribe was called in the books) to trust her (mostly) Hypergoof got a job working at a dragon rehabilitation center which is part of the reason she knows so many dragons. Hypergoof has a few problems. One, she is terrified of hot things. (A problem I myself have) She will not touch any stoker class dragons as a result. (With the exception of two individuals) She will still try to help a injured stoker as long as she doesn't have to touch it. Her other problem is also based on one of mine. I am Hypersensitive to sound and certain noises hurt me. Hypergoof has this too but in her the pain can cause her to go Berserk. One of the worst noises is whistling. She will attack anyone who does it near her. (Note this does not mean that I will fire troll those who's character whistles in game. It is a character trait for role playing and storytelling only.) Hypergoof also can't stand large crowds for too long. She will often retreat if things get too noisy. Hypergoof is a good fisher and farmer but a horrible fighter. (Unless she goes Berserk in which case she may get hurt but will do significant damage to her opponent.) She is generally friendly unless she gets stressed out in which case she becomes snappy. Most of her friends are dragons. Because of this Hypergoof has picked up dragoneese and speaks it quite fluently.

 

 

 

 

Littlebird (Hypergoof's sister) and Hypergoof's parents don't have much back story at the moment. None are in game.

 

 

Termite- Is one of Hypergoof's few human friends. (She is in game now as HypersFriendTermite. The chances of seeing her are low though. If seen she will probably be with Wiggles.) She is a woodworker hence the name. She didn't trust Hypergoof when they first met but soon found that they had a lot in common. She is the true trainer of Wiggles but often leaves him with Hypergoof when she must work on something.  Hypergoof and Termite like to take dragon food out into the wilderness ware they wait to see what shows up.

(wants to chew on Mildew's new chair just off camera)

(FUN FACT: Mildew is one of the only people Wiggles doesn't like)

            A young rambunctious whispering death with a sweet heart but a naughty mind. Hypergoof's friend Termite adopted him as a baby when his whole family was killed by dragon slayers. Unlike most of his species Wiggles could be described as... cuddly. He wants to be friends with everyone he meets and seems completely oblivious to his size and appearance. He simply does not understand that he is scary and is baffled that some people won't play with him or give him a hug. His best friend growing up was Termite's mutt of a dog Drool, and Wiggles learned the odd habit of waging his tail from his canine friend. Most dignified dragons (especially whispering deaths) are appalled by the behavior but no amount of laughing at Wiggles or begging him to stop for the sake of dignity will change anything. Wiggles simply doesn't care. All that matters to him is how much fun he's having. He will even allow himself to be dressed up for snoggletog and will parade around in the Jingle bells and antlers with pride. (As seen here.) Wiggles is an all around charming and sweet creacher but he is not without flaws. He can not be left alone for more than five minutes or else he will chew on something, especially furniture. Usually damaging it beyond repair. He can not be taken to a marketplace because the concept that Termite "hasn't bought that yet and so he shouldn't eat it" is something he can not seem to grasp. Nore is the one that "That doesn't belong to us!" Termite has taken to carrying a bag of dried mutton strips (Mutton is Wiggles's favorite) to redirect the serpent's attention if she catches him with the look in his eyes that she learned to recognize as his "I'm going to chew on that" face. Despite her best efforts Wiggles is a hand full and Termite often leaves him with Hypergoof if she has to go do some woodworking. Wiggles thinks of Termite as his mother but he thinks of Hypergoof as a friend and enjoys playing with her. Hypergoof shows no fear towards him at all and will even let Wiggles hug her if he asks permission first. (Hypergoof does not like being touched without warning but will happily accept a hug from a friend.) Interestingly Hypergoof found that Wiggles is a very good racer despite his poor eyesight.

 

 

 

Cuteseepie

(Relaxing at home)

          The first dragon Hypergoof ever rescued and one of her closest friends. He is a Pink and Blue deadly nadder. When he was a hatchling his curiosity got the better of him. He wandered away from his nest in the dead of winter and found himself lost in a blizzard which would have been the end of him if he hadn't stumbled onto the front lawn of Hypergoof's house. His crys alerted the family who quickly took him in out of the cold and thus saved his life. Cuteseepie and Hypergoof have been friends ever since. Cuteseepie has a mellow gentle nature broken up occasionally for excitement at an adventure. He will defend Hypergoof or if need be prevent her from attacking someone who whistled. His level headedness balances out against Hypergoof's goofyness rather nicely. 

 

 

 

Ziggy

(Showing off again)

          A skrill that Hypergoof found injured while dragon watching. Her success in helping him helped her get the job she currently has and also built up a friendship between Hypergoof and Ziggy. It probably helped that Ziggy is not a very old skrill, only having just left his parents, before somehow getting hurt. Much like a cat Ziggy tries to be more dignified than he really is. One moment showing off his impressive wingspan with a majestic yawn and the next he's off chaiseing a light or a leaf when he thinks no one is looking. He often roles his eyes when Hypergoof playfully teases him by saying his name in a funny pitch or calling him "The Zigster" but a poorly hidden grin betrays the fact that he doesn't mind as much as he lets on. Ziggy is decently friendly to most people who don't insult his dignity (only his close friends are allowed to do that) but he is still technically a wild skrill. He spends most of his time off chaising storms and doing whatever else wild skrills do only he stops by every once in a while to visit Hypergoof. Manny people wonder why he keeps coming back as he always seems more annoyed with Hypergoof than anything but it is just a mask. A false front. He secretly really enjoys her company. In fact perhaps Hypergoof's absurdity amuses him. FUN FACT: Before meeting Ziggy it was Hypergoof's life dream to see a live skrill. (Partly her Berserker heritage) For her meeting Ziggy was akin to meeting a celebrity. Of course things got more normal between them as they got to know each other but Hypergoof is still pretty darn proud that a skrill let her be his friend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Causemoe

(Knows the owner of this house hates it when he sits there)

           A young flightmare who was one of Ziggy's friends then also became Hypergoof's friend when Ziggy brought him to Berk. Unlike Ziggy though, Causemoe decided that he liked Berk and the school so much that he would stay. He is a complete showoff and loves to be the center of attention. He can get huffy if he finds someone who does one of his favorite things better than him. He especially hates it that Wanda can glow brighter than him. She often tones down her glow when she's near him to spare his feelings.

 

 

 

 

 

Wanda

(Knows the best places for the best view)

         As mentioned before, Hypergoof is scared of stoker class dragons. When approached by a fireworm her normal reaction is to flip out as if the little dragon was a bee. Wanda however is an exception to this rule and not only is she a fireworm but she is a fireworm queen. Hypergoof once got herself lost in a snowstorm and was found by one of Wanda's workers unconscious and soon to freeze if something wasn't done. Wanda is a very empathetic dragon. Even though she didn't trust humans she didn't want to see a helpless creacher d.ie in such a way. She took Hypergoof into her nest to warm up. Hypergoof was stuck there for several days not knowing which way was home until Cuteseepie tracked her down by scent and took her back to the village. During Hypergoof's time in the nest Wanda decided she liked this little human. Hypergoof was terrified of most of Wanda's children and since Wanda didn't understand Norse yet Hypergoof communicated her unease by sticking as close to the fireworm queen as she would allow. Purposely mimicking the bodylanguig of a scared puppy to get her point across. Wanda was sympathetic of Hypergoof's fear and allowed the little human to stay near. Keeping the meaner members of her family at bay until Cuteseepie could find the lost viking. Wanda was a bit suprized to find that a dragon was the one looking for the girl. She has a healthy dose of curiosity in her and often visits Berk for "research purposes" as she calls it. Wanda is curious about humans and wants to learn about them. Hypergoof is grateful to Wanda for her kindness and will come when she calls. Something Wanda finds amusing but also gives her an easy target to study. Personalitywise Wanda is the type of person one might have a fancy tea party with. She is every bit a queen but is also an intellectual with a kind heart. She hangs around Berk to study the uneeq human and dragon interactions there. Seeking how to possibly spread that type of friendship for the good of dragon kind.

 

 

 

 

 

Burpetta

(Wonders if she'd get in trouble for blasting me into the water behind the camera)

          A pink thunderdrum who someone in the dragon rehab center found as a baby then dumped on Hypergoof since no one wanted to deal with the hatchling. Their relationship started out terribly due to Hypergoof's sound sensitivity. In the beginning Hypergoof could barely stand Burpetta but eventually the dragon realized that her loudness has hurting the human and learned to be more gentle with Hypergoof's delicate ears. Sometimes Burpetta can be careless but she never means any harm and will correct her behavior when she eventually realizes she did wrong. She is kind by nature but loves a bit of mischief now and then. She also has a bit of the stubbornness common in her breed. Once she sets her mind to something it is difficult to convince her otherwise.

 

 

 

 

Chomp

(Sleeping like the baby he is)

            A screaming death. He is the baby of the group despite being the biggest member of it. When Alven found out that one of the eggs he'd planted under Berk had hatched a screaming death he decided he wanted such a beast for himself. He knew he couldn't capture the adult so he decided to get his hands on a hatchling. He captured a bunch of the successful breeding pair's family members in the hopes that more of them would carry the incredibly rare screaming death gene. The captive dragons were force bread and after many many attempts Alven got what he wanted. He didn't get to keep it though as a couple Hooligans who had snuck into Alven's hideout looking for helpful info about future plans found the baby screaming death instead. They took it back to Berk to figure out what to do with it. Several people wanted to kill the little guy before he could grow into an island eater but Hypergoof over heard and was horrified. She knew what it felt like to be disliked for what she was rather than who she was. Some people didn't trust her because she was a Berserker. She knew it wasn't fair to judge someone that way. She stole Chomp and (With Wiggles and Termite's permission) hid him down Wiggles's tunnels. Wiggles didn't mind and enjoyed having a roommate to play with. Chomp stayed there unknown until his loudness and the sheer amount of food being brought down there gave him away. By then though he was old enough that he had enough personality to proved him a gentle giant rather than a monster and he was allowed to stay. He is not at all a full grown screaming death and has the personality of a giant toddler. He is surprisingly gentle especially considering his breed. He is so mild tempered that he will stare blankly at fire trolls wondering what they are doing. He will only engage if he thinks it's a game. Despite his gentleness his size and strength can be a problem. He will occasionally knock someone over with his tail by accident then stare at them in confusion not smart enough to understand why the person fell but knowing it was still somehow his fault. When other screaming deaths were allowed into the school Chomp was thrilled to have playmates his size. Chomp is very much still a baby mindwise. He is very food oreeinted and can be prompted to do nearly anything for a snack. It's a very good thing he doesn't consider humans food. It's hard to imagine that he could ever be related to the screaming death who once tried to eat Berk but he is. The danjoris one happens to be his somewhat distant uncle. Fun fact: Hypergoof often refers to Chomp's uncle as Mr. Island munch and insists that she will continue to do so until his actual name is found out or created.

 

 

 

 

 

Punaluu

(LOVES sand)

(I really shouldn't be suprized)

            A female sand wraith. Punaluu comes from a subspeasys of sand wraith on a volcanic island with black sand. (Like the beach Punaluu is named after.) As such they adapted to the environment by becoming black. A side affect of this is that now the subspeacys looks even more like a nightfurry than the normal ones. Some money hungry showmen found out about them and decided to make a quick buck. They stoll an egg from this island and paraded the black hatchling around claiming it to be a nightfurry. This charade ended when they made the mistake of bringing their show to Berk. Seeing that the dragon was being treated badly the Hooligans took the baby from the showmen and took it to the dragon rehabilitation center for treatment for whip wounds and malnutrition. Punaluu is much healthier now and is a happy energetic young sand wraith. One problem she has is that her dark coloring is only designed for a certain type of area and she can not camouflage most of the time because of it. Not being able to hide occasionally gives her episodes of anxiety but a quick trip to a beach ushuly fixes it. She is very shy around strangers but around those she knows she is a complete goof. She can also be a bit naughty. Sometimes she feels out of place like she doesn't belong and so interacts well with Hypergoof who doesn't fit in all that well ether.

Well, I'm no biology expert, but I'm not so sure that olive snails and cone snails are related other than the fact that they're both snails, obviously. I have discovered one thing though: lettered olive snails are probably some of the most boring species in existence. Really, the only interesting thing I could find about them is that they're the state shell of South Carolina. That's something, I guess :D

 

Freaked out by an animal? That is not me XD I'd probably still coo over the kind that could kill me... from a safe distance, of course!

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

I didn't say they were related. I said they LOOK similar. Looking similar doesn't always mean related. On this note. Fun fact. The big fruit bats aren't actually that closely related to the smaller micro bats (you know the ones that usually eat bugs but not always). By which I mean that they came from two entirely different mammals that learned to fly separately. Evidently having hand wings is just an easy way for mammals to become flyers.

 

And I'm not usually freaked out by animals ether. It's only this specific one which is why I commented in the first place because it's weird that they freak me out and if something is weird I tend to share it. I think mambas and gaboon vipers are cute (the deadly snakes) but for some reason these snails are different for some reason and that is so weird. I'm not bothered by small crawly things ether which makes this even more confusing. I don't understand my brain sometimes.
