Hey there watchers!

A friend of my buddy O-RainKnight-O is hosting her first adopt, which you can find at Plum Karef ADOPT. If you're willing, check it out and see if you'd be interested! It would mean a lot to her and O-RainKnight-O if you did!

And, if you've got the time, pass the message on!
Thanks for your time!
Fire and Ice
This is a collaboration that TheSilverSpiritsARK (goes by BloodHybrid on Colors! 3D) and I threw together; she drew her dragon Hiiro on the right and I drew my griffin Eira Whiteheart on the left. I also added the snow, fire, and other special effects.

This was originally painted on a Nintendo 3DS, but since each character was drawn on a separate console, I was unable to post it on Colors! 3D. Thus, I am uploading it here on DA.

I hope you enjoy it!
I was not tagged, but I saw RadiantRaindragon do this and decided to tag myself. XD

1. Pick one of your OCs.
2. Fill in the questions/statements as if you were your OC.
3. Tag four people to do this meme.
4. Tell people that they been tagged with a link from your journal.

I am choosing my OC Hack because he's the most interesting character I have personality-wise. 'XD Check out to see a quick drawing of him.

1.What is your name?
*salutes* Hack Sterling Stillwright! Who are you?

2. Do you know why you were named that?
Um, you just ignored my question. But I'll forgive you - I didn't want to know your name anyways.

3. Are you single or taken?
I'm single. I'm not gonna date you, if that's what you're asking.

4. Have you any abilities or powers?
Well, I can fly. And I don't mean to brag, but I am a pretty skilled mechanic and toolwright, as well as an adept thief. But I don't rely on the last ability to survive. I'm a little more civilized than that.

5. Stop being a Mary-sue!!
I never said I was a Mary-sue. I'm a perfectly normal, civilized person... if a desert-wandering nomad is what you'd call "normal and civilized".

6. What's your eye color?
I'm heterochromic. My eyes were originally brown, but after a small incident when I hit my head pretty hard, my right iris turned blue.

7. How about hair color?
A turquoise blue with a few streaks of brown and tan on my bangs. Dunno why. Just born that way.

8. Have you any family-members?
The desert-nomad band that I travel with is the only family I've ever known. Dunno about my true family.

9. Oh? How about pets?
I've kept quite a few desert critters in the past, but they never hung around for long. Why should they have any reason to be shy of the strap-on rocket-propelled boosters I would make for them? *shrugs*

10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.
Something I don't like? Stuff like restrictions, limitations, and bossy, authoritative figures. I like my freedom.

11. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
When I'm not crafting machines and repairing airships, I like to fly around and preform stunts. You wouldn't believe how incredible it is when I'm up there! The feel of the wind through my hair, the thrilling sensation I get when diving and free-falling... it's something I couldn't live without.

12. Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?
Oh yeah, definitely. Many of the machines I have created have malfunctioned or exploded on people before, but they still lived. I totally get berated afterwards, but every time was one-hundred percent worth it. 

13. Ever... killed anyone before?
*chuckles uncomfortably* I honestly don't like talking about it, but yes, once. When exploring the backstreets of a city that my nomad band stopped at, I got jumped by this group of street thugs. There was a big tussle, and sometime during it I managed to grab one of the guy's knives and run it through him. It was honestly an act of defense, and I didn't know I had actually killed him until the thugs backed away in horror. That was the same incident when I injured my head, resulting in my heterochromia and a snapped horn. I would say, "serves him right," but even I have the sensibility to know he didn't truly deserve to die for such a small crime.

14. What kind of animal are you?
No sympathy at all? Despite the tragic story I just shared with you? I'll forgive you again though - I never wanted your pity. Anyways. I'm what is called a Deia; I am humanoid, but I have large, dactyl wings and two sets of elongated elfish ears, and my legs are sort of bird-like. Male Deia such as myself have little horns on our foreheads too.

15. Name your worst habits.
*scratches head* Habits? Risking my life too often, not giving consideration for other people's lives and well-being.... I can also be very sarcastic, so don't get on my nerves.

16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
Yeah, the leader of our nomad band. He's patient and accepting, like a loving father. He would probably be the very last to vote me out of the group. And that's pretty big, considering the fact that I am the worst troublemaker out of us all.

17. Are you gay, straight, or bisexual?
I'm fine being single, but I prefer ladies over men, so I'd say straight.

18. Do you go to school?
Nope. Never have, probably never will.

19. Ever wanna marry and have kids one day?
You've got nerve to ask a question like that. Why are you interviewing me anyways?

20. Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
You ignored me again. I would ignore you in return, but I'm proud to say that the kids nearest to my age in our group look up to me often, so I'll forgive you one last time.

21. What are you most afraid of?
It's shocking of me to actually care for people, but I couldn't bear to lose my nomad family. They took me in; they've been everything I've ever wanted. And losing them would destroy my will to live.

22. What do you usually wear?
I wear my leather work apron on top of a thin white dress shirt. I often keep a bandanna around my neck.

23. What's one food that tempts you?
The smoked ham from the Capital market is the best. And for some reason it tastes even better when it's stolen. *grins devilishly*

24. Am I annoying you?
Yeah, you are. When do I get to ask the questions? I want to know why you are interrogating me on my personal life.

25. Well, it's still not over!
You sure are persistent. If you want an autograph, just ask, for Pete's sake.

26. What class are you? (low class, middle class, high class)?
If it's true that nomads are lowly, cheating gypsies that wander the deserts because they are unable, or unwilling, to own property, then I guess I'd be Low Class.

27. How many friends do you have?
If you're talking about the person whom one lives for and offers undying loyalty, then that would be our band leader. If he doesn't count, then I have no friends. And no, you are not my friend.

28. What are your thoughts on pie?
I guess they're pretty appetizing. How many pointless questions will you ask before you're satisfied?

30. Favorite drink?
Water. It's the most satisfying drink in the world if you live in the desert, but it's hard to come by.

31. What's your favorite place?
I don't have a home, and a constantly-moving caravan of scrap airships doesn't count as a place, so those two are off the list. The Capital is a treat to visit, though.

32. Are you interested in anyone~?
*groans* I told you once, and I'll tell you again. I'm NOT gonna date you.

33. If you're a girl, what's your cup size? If you're a guy, how big are you?
Um... my arms are pretty well-exercised from years of hammering and lifting heavy metal, but other than that, I'm not physically impressive. Satisfied? Now stop hitting on me and do something better with your life.

34. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
I take that back. You don't have a life.

35. What's your type?
Hmm... I've never thought about that. But persistent and talkative ones get on my nerves. So shove off.

36. Any fetishes?
*facepalms* I give up on trying to deter you.

37. Seme or uke?
I told you, I'm straight.

38. Camping or indoors?
Camping. Indoors are so suffocating and limiting. I would hate to be locked away in a small, stuffy room, even for a day.

*holds breath and waits*

Wow, are you actually done? Amazing. I thought this would last for a few days, or at least until I dropped dead from insanity. So I would ask why you spent fifteen minutes of the life that you never had interrogating a total stranger such as myself, but I don't even care to ask you questions anymore, so just get out of here and bug somebody else. *takes off*

That was longer than I had intended to make it.

Anyways, since I know so few people here on DA, anybody who bothered to read all this is automatically tagged.
Thanks for reading, and have fun!

I saw RadiantRaindragon do this and decided to steal it. XD

Since I probably won't start posting art on dA for a very long time, I might as well do some journal activities to show that I am still alive here. With this first entry, I will display the level of stupidity on which I reside, in case you wanted to know more about me.

Greetings, visitors!

I do not use my DeviantArt account for posting art (as you can plainly see by the number of art posted here), but I am an active artist on Colors 3D! and go by the username FadingGlory there. If you wish to see my art, visit…

About me: My art centers around dragons, but I often draw various real and fantasy creatures as well. I enjoy many things - some of which include art, writing, roleplaying, snuggling up in fuzzy blankets on a rainy day, chocolate, and of course, dragons.

Alkalimity Featured By Owner Edited Jan 31, 2017  New Deviant Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just got Da! I probably won't use it much for various reasons but for now hi :P
Fadinglory Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahh, hello hello! I don't use my DA either, but it's good for keeping connections with friends. XD I've watched you back!
Alkalimity Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2017  New Deviant Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahhhh I've just checked on by because I found an email that notified me XD
Yeah I think though that I might use this more in the future when I get a new pc Q.Q
Though I'll still use colors because after it did do a lot for me in terms of art. I owe it at least that much. :]
Fadinglory Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha yeah, for myself at least, it would be hard to entirely leave Colors after I've known it for nearly five years. I'd miss seeing you there too, so don't forget about us! XD But definitely enjoy your stay at DA.

Also, I don't know if you saw it, but I drew the Elvira that you gave me on Colors!

Hello :D
A good friend of mine has just made a new species and we were wondering if you would be willing to see and/or like to adopt one. They are planning on turning them into an arpg group and they needed help getting started.
Plum Karef ADOPT
This is one of the first official adopts :D
If you aren't interested we would still very much appreciate it if you passed on this information :D
Fadinglory Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey there!
Umm, so I looked around for a while but couldn't figure out how to pass on the information of your friend's adopt (I don't even know how to properly apply links to posts 'xD)... Would you be able to instruct me on how to do it, if possible? If not, I understand - I'll just keep looking around. ^^
O-RainKnight-O Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i have no idea what the original link was. But I can show you how to post links. I'll use Bishop's FP tracker as an example. I'm pretty sure that it works for both PC and iPad so we don't need to worry about that.

First way: URL
   - Go to the page/journal/video you wish to link and go to the URL at the top of the page and copy the link.
   - Paste the link to where you want to spread the information and it will automatically make it a clickable link once it has been confirmed to be there.
It should automatically shorten the link with a "..." to keep it from being to long.

Second way: Copy/Paste text with a link
This one was really difficult to explain for the first time.
I'm going to use Bishop's FP tracker as the example again.

So basically, if you click on the link above, it will lead you to Bishop's FP tracker. You will notice the big text in the top left of the journal that says, "Bishop FP Tracker" Now, if you click on that text, you will notice that it reloads the page. What it's actually doing is leading you to the page using a URL with a title text. If you highlight the, "Bishop FP Tracker" text and copy it, you can copy and paste the text with the link.
Example: Bishop FP Tracker

Third way: Naming your own URL
This only works in journals and comments

Notice this text:
 <.a href="URL goes here">Name of link goes here</a.>

Basicly, just copy and paste this then fill out the required information.
Going to use Bishop's FP Tracker yet again as an example: 

1: Copy and paste as it is above
<.a href="URL goes here">Name of link goes here</a.>

2: Copy the URL of the desired link and paste it where it should go
<.a href="…">Name of link goes here</a.>

3: Once you have posted the URL, type in what you want the link to say
<.a href="…">Bishop FP Tracker</a.>

4: Delete the periods at the beginning and end of the text and it should work.
Bishop FP Tracker

You didn't specify how you wanted to link it XD
So I listed all the ways I knew how. This took me 30 minutes to type XD
