Elnin : A Dragon's Devotion [OVER] by manaberry Elnin : A Dragon's Devotion [OVER] by manaberry
02/16/2016 :: Updated with an AB and info on a bonus for Autobuying! Also I realized it may be unclear, but the wings on his butt are strictly clothing, and not actually attached to him in any way *u*)-b

------

"Have you seen..."

His silent inquiry touches the minds of everyone he meets. The dashing dragonscale-bedecked elnin is looking for someone very important! She has gotten herself lost again, that silly little thing, and he must locate her posthaste. She is his young ward after all, sent to him for guidance and protection. His very first fosterling and he's lost her several times already! She clearly doesn't respect his authority, that pom-addled puff. So what if he's as green as spring when it comes to this whole Caretaker hullabaloo, she must still heed his instructions! Honestly, of all the fuzz-brained younglings he could have had for fostering, why did it have to be such a foolish, fanciful, frivolous little fluff! 

Still... she is his ward. And he is very concerned. So won't you please help him find her? It's for her own sake of course.

... Oh... But the problem is, and you would never guess it by his calm exterior surely, is that he is excessively distraught! He cannot seem to form the proper images in his mind to capture the likeness of the one he seeks. All he sends are jumbled impressions of flower petals and silk and a charming, chiming, chirp of a laugh. Which is lovely true, but really entirely unhelpful.

How will this brave dragon find his little princess?


------

Welcome to the first part of a three part mini-story event, "The Dragon and the Princess"! I've been itching to do more collabs with new people, so this will hopefully be the first of many! >u< This particular event is the result of a collaboration with Forged-Artifacts, who designed the outfits and the framework of the super cute story behind it. I hope you guys enjoy it! <3

Also painting practice... allll the painting practice!!

Dude, that's not how AB works. Paper can't personally poke everyone who is interested, half of ABing is luck, the other half is connection speed.

sinpure Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Err, well-
I thought she could, just give me a heads up-
I always miss it

hhh
thanks though~!
Reply
:iconjadedphoenix:
jadedphoenix Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It sucks to miss things you want, but if Paper gave you a heads up then she has to give everyone else the same heads up which a) isn't possible to do all at the same time so someone will still be unfairly first notified (and cue the complaints about favouritism and cheating), and b) would be incredibly time-consuming for Paper.

I've suggested that Paper do some auctions without ABs, so timing/luck doesn't come into it, but that does make it all about the money. Although Paper's always been really great about mixing up her methods of selling, having raffles and contests as well as auctions and the occasional cheap flat-sale (like the basic Halloween designs from last year).

Whatever way you spin it, luck is always going to be a big factor in any kind of sale - even if an auction without AB goes for two or three days, maybe that's the two or three days someone is unlucky enough to be offline or have lost their Net connection for :<

Good luck with the auction, you're doing pretty well at the moment! ^_~ Or if you don't get this one, there's 3 more auctions plus 2 free raffles in this event. And then Paper's birthday month event. Lots of events~!

ooooh my!! 
3 more? do you know what theme they will be or am i blind and didnt see her post the themes? ahaha
Reply
:iconjadedphoenix:
jadedphoenix Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't know the themes and haven't seen previews, but Paper's latest poll (before this elnin went up) was announcing the three parts of this event and what each of them were:

Part 1 : "A Dragon's Devotion" Auction x1
Part 2 : "Guiding Gossips" Auctions x2 / Free Raffle x2
Part 3: "A Quest Fulfilled" Auction x1

I'm guessing Pt 3 will be an auction for the dragon's "princess" (unlikely to be a royal rank elnin, more likely to be princess-themed outfit). And the four in the middle could be anything, but I'm personally hoping they're also a little bit fantasy / medieval / fairy tale themed? But I don't actually know, so we'll all be surprised together!

jadedphoenix Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't think he's actually Knight rank, but he'd be an interesting contender for one! Just need a few more royals with knight tokens to hand out...
Reply
:iconmoonkelpie:
Moonkelpie Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2016
Heck, I'd probably go around giving practically every Elnin a Knight token just to see what their humanoid, Knight-based form would look like!:lol:
Reply
:iconjadedphoenix:
jadedphoenix Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, all elnin get a humanoid form, so this guy can have that no matter what ;3 Just not a combat-capable one with a transformed pomu-weapon unless more Knight tokens make an appearance later. (The vamp royals only got one token each, so can't just knight everyone.)

They still have their ears and tail. And they're a halfling race, like Lyn from Blade and Soul or Lalafell from FF14. So they can't be passed off as human or any of the other humanoid races on Eyre. But they can tackle hurdles like doors and jars and other things that require opposable thumbs >.>;;
