Charmander

NIXIE & FRITTER

Nixie Ref
(can be depicted in more local/era-accurate clothing)
Nixie is a water pokemon trainer and has come a long way to seek out new, strong Pokemon but has become distracted by Tokotas. While she's pretty good with Pokemon, she is terrible at anything Tokota-related. 
Fritter is Nixie's shiny charmander; her one and only shiny and the only reason she keeps her around at all (and out of her ball to show him off). Fritter is weak but unbeknownst to Nixie has taken well to handling Tokotas. Her Tokotas.

Coypu 11659 by TotemSpirit
COYPU
Quiet, but a playful, light-hearted, clumsy idiot.

Gapper 15283 by TotemSpirit
GAPPER
A toki that tries his best but often forgets his manners.


Leaf divider (right) by CherushiMetsumari Leaf divider (left) by CherushiMetsumari

THE BANDIT PACK

Tokotas that do not have a consistent rider, or one at all, and usually take care of themselves and each other as a pack. They can be depicted with any rider, owned by me or not.

Cooney 13574 by TotemSpirit
COONEY
A goofball and a trickster in spite of her age. 

Aplodontia 12972 by TotemSpirit
APLODONTIA
Independent and competent but often an anxious diva.

Assapan 15187 by TotemSpirit

UMAMI

A catfish merman that crawled out of the waters and onto land. In spite of his obvious adaptation of aquatic life, he avoids the ocean and even large lakes like the plague. He has exceptional hearing, strength, and a knack for geology. He's a high class lowlife. 
Umami has little preference for what his Shi'vali look like.


The first living thing Umami met upon coming onto land. He found her alone, presumably abandoned, in the forest. She prissy and sassy but is his most loyal companion.


An easily frightened Hinshu that Umami and Kinpaku met during Shiv-o-Ween. He was running away from the loud drums from the local celebration and once captured, one claimed him. And so Umami kept him around out of pity.
Porky has a 
 brown pig companion named Rumproast.



KING

King Ref
A strange green furry alien that hails from the 'Nebula' Solar System as he puts it. There he's a bandit and a criminal, and he hasn't turned over a new leaf upon coming to Shimora either. He knows very little about Shimora or Shi'vali, often messing up simple vocabulary everyone else seems to know. He can be a dangerous one but King is also rather carefree, a go-with-the-flow kind of guy. He has a strong hatred for dragons of any sort.
King only has Nebula-marked non-rag'oran Shi'vali.

Jack The King 401 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
JACK
Jack became a well-known rogue Hinshu known womanizing owned Shi'vali girls and took to King after the alien allowed him to hide away from harm in his keep. King never asked Jack to change his ways, something that Jack has more than appreciated. The two get along perfectly as equals.
Jack has a  red crested crane companion named Hōtō.


Queen the Zhanshi 660 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
  QUEEN
King did not find Queen, Queen found him. She is a dominant girl and while she listens to King, she considers the rest of his pride below her. She is however quite responsible and sometimes motherly. She is aggressive.
Queen has a  bird of paradise companion named Xièxiè.


Leaf divider (right) by CherushiMetsumari Leaf divider (left) by CherushiMetsumari

SHAKUHACHI

A young raccoon dog that's always cheery and ready to help but is more than a little oblivious and idiotic. He has always lived in Shimora, although strangely enough for his kind, much of his childhood memories were in Sarnai. He cares deeply for his Shi'vali and his brother.
Shakuhachi has little personal preference for Shi'vali, but coincidentally has very striking ones.

Seonmul 416 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
SEONMUL
Seonmul, or Sonny, has been a part of Shakuhachi's family since before the boy was even born. Seonmul has always been there by Shakuhachi's side, joking and playing with him while also constantly working as his guardian and support. Shakuhachi sees Seonmul as his brother, and the feeling his mutual.
Seonmul has a ♀ grey potbelly pig companion named Baba


Northstar 781 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
NORTHSTAR
A silent but generally sweet and sharp member of Shakuhachi's family. Northstar, in spite of his vision of Shakuhachi and Seonmul, is usually the one looking out for them instead of the other way around. He is terribly shy.
Northstar has a  chocolate tanuki companion that is his rider, Shakuhachi.


Leaf divider (right) by CherushiMetsumari Leaf divider (left) by CherushiMetsumari

ADIGARD

Adigard Ref
Adigard came to Shimora not long ago, leaving behind the Americas in the process. He's a southern-born cajun rabbit with one hell of a thick accent. He is a single father, looking after two cougar cubs named Feu and Dolce. He is generally a very serious man and does not take kindly to anyone or anything he considers dangeorus. 
Adigard prefers somewhat horse-like, adorable and/or kind Shi'vali.

Searchlight 399 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
SEARCHLIGHT
An older low-energy Hinshu that came with the property Adigard bought from an elderly farming couple. He's sweet, patient, and reliable so it was only a matter of time before he won over the paranoid rabbit. Searchlight mainly helps Adigard out with farming, akin to a draft horse.

Applebite 1138 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
APPLEBITE
A fairly young feral that just sort of... Showed up one day at their house and had no interest in leaving no matter what Adigard tried to do. While clumsy, she's gentle yet protective of Feu and Dolce. This apparently she's here to stay moreso as the kids beloved steed than of their father's.

Ostara 1203 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
OSTARA
A runaway that decided she was head over heels for Adigard, the rabbit. Rabbits are by far her favorite animal and Adigard clearly most of all. She is extremely cuddly and enjoys the softer things in life, and as such Adigard has come to tolerate her presence. She's a little too overbearing with him for him to say he 'loves' it...


Leaf divider (right) by CherushiMetsumari Leaf divider (left) by CherushiMetsumari

OWSTONI

Toni Ref (slightly outdated)
A strange man with little knowledge of his heritage but a lively and memorable childhood among the Curly Eye Circus group. Now an adult, Toni has left his family's circus and sought out a new life. However he could not stay away from life of a circus freak for long, and has ended up part of the Khanblau Performers; a travelling circus in Shimora. 

Ameowsing 1021 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
AMEOWSING
A flashy looking but quiet, noble boy with the splendid grace you'd expect from a three-ring circus. Ameowsing is more like Toni's partner opposed to his pet or steed. He is a hard worker and will help out in hunting/fishing without complaint even if it isn't what he's most passionate about. 


Leaf divider (right) by CherushiMetsumari Leaf divider (left) by CherushiMetsumari

STRAYS

Shi'vali that do not have a consistent rider, or one at all, and usually take care of themselves as loners. They can be depicted with any rider, owned by me or not.

Ronin 405 by Shivali-Lorekeeper
RONIN
A gal that doesn't like to stay in one spot for too long. She has more interest in owned Shi'vali than the riders themselves, but when she stops to enjoy domestic life, she is an obedient Hinshu and takes to commands well. She's tough and resourceful.

Queen


Queens Rider is King
Queen is not a very sweet girl. She's gruff and ruthless. She is territorial and plenty aggressive. She's especially unforgiving towards other females and Ko'kumai. She is confident and considers herself quite beautiful but also isn't afraid to get dirty if it means getting the job done. She loves to hunt and scare others. 

She enjoys the company of her rider King and the rest of their criminal pride. She considers herself to be alpha-shi, and does not take crap from any of the other shi. That said, she also considers it her responsibility to make sure they are all safe, happy, and well-fed. She is quick to deal out punishment and revenge.

Bird of Paradise Companion by Shivali-Lorekeeper
Xièxiè
Queen has a Bird of Paradise Companion!
Xiexie is a loyal companion to Queen. She is vain and quiet but diligent and fearless as well. She works well with Queen, and does whatever the Shi'vali asks of her. Although usually all Queen asks of the bird is to look beautiful and stare others down.

Some of you are going to be upset with me with this I think uvu;; but I wanted to post this anyhow. 

So assuming you don't have Photoshop or much any other program for art, I'd just suggest downloading a free art program like Krita or Gimp or whatever program (that takes psd) you're in the mood for. 

This is basically just the "avoid PSD files" plan, but of course if you play around on ARPGs like I do, you know you won't be able to avoid PSDs for long. 

Just work on your PSD file on SAI, save it as a PSD, and when it's good and ready and you want a png or jpg or whatever, flatten it all into a single layer (since some programs flip out about different kinds of layers) and save it as a different psd file like 'my image FLAT.psd' and then bring it up in the free program and save it as a PNG/whatever from there.

There are solutions to the failed canvas shit but they've been temporary for me. I'm sure 99% of SAI users that ran into this problem came to the same conclusion that took me this long to decide on doing, but I wanted to put this out there for anyone that was getting frustrated tryin to fix that shit. Just work around it like this and it seems to be fine :thumbsup: 

Ronin

The wandering samurai with no lord nor master.

Ronin does not have a designated rider.
Ronin is independent and more than a little gruff. She generally wanders around on her own, preferring specifically to choose her own path in life opposed to being tied down and tied up by reins and riders.

Yet from time to time Ronin does enjoy the company of people. She seemingly can't help but go too long before her need for some sort of company overwhelms her. She usually picks her temporary riders based on how much she likes the other Shi'vali they surround themselves with, but has occasionally picked out people that had no Shi'vali at all. 

She follows commands surprisingly well during her short stays with humanity. She's been taught all she needs by someone. No one knows who her original master was but apparently the ownership left a bad taste in her mouth.

CEREMONY OF RIDERHOOD


•  New [King/Jack Mela/Ronin]Shimora. Shimora was a beautiful place. At least that’s what everyone kept telling King and Mela. They’d been on Shimora for a few weeks now and they’d certainly touched down when the land was in peril, didn’t they? Shimora burned to a crisp and now felt frozen solid. For a while, King had insisted on staying in the desert, and there he met Jack, a rogue Hinshu. With a means of travel, he sought out his subordinate Mela once more and in no time at all, they had another straggler, another rogue. A female onyx Hinshu named Ronin.
King nor Mela were from Shimora, nor even from Earth. The two had come from another solar system entirely. Even then, King and Mela did not share the same homeplanets, and only after they had abandoned their homelands did the two even meet.
There was King, an intimidating man in his prime, a man no longer accepting any sort of bondage be it the ties to his stomping grounds or even that solar system. And Mela, a woman of a species that bre

º  New Pt.2 [King/Jack Mela/Ronin]There were a couple days that Mela and King, along with the Shi’vali Ronin and Jack, spent in those silvery strange ruins. The two Hinshu had led their riders there wanting to show them something they had never seen before, or just something to surprise them. They had certainly surprised them.
The markings along the old stone was strange but familiar. The pictures looking like the goddess of Mela’s home planet, Victoria. Great goddess Victoria. It wasn’t a far stretch to think that Victorians had come here before Mela and King either. Mela’s people had been on the hunt for the perfect place to rehome. Their planet was slowly withering away just as much as the sickly rider was right before King’s very eyes.
The Victorians could have easily fought off the forces here, especially back in the day when their sickness was weaker and their forces stronger, bigger. Something sent them home. Obviously they were not here any more. Mela took comfort just in seeing th

At the very least however father hadn’t told Mysie any stipulations, and Mysie had taken that to mean he could alter the plan as he pleased to suit his pace. He had no interest in him or Shi’vali, Rhea, killing anything. Rhea could certainly do it, Mysie knew that. She was an enormous Yase just like another other healthy Yase, and had a mouth that could probably bite a sea turtle in two. But he didn’t want to end up washing a smear of blood from off her golden beige pelt and he sure didn’t want to be traumatized either by the mangled corpse of an animal she would leave in her wake.
Oh no, he’d rather hire people and work with them at this. The first person he picked was an easy choice; the merman named U

JACK

The King.

Jack's Rider is King
Jack remains as prideful, aggressive, vain, and flirtatious with lady Shi'vali as he was back in his lonesome days. His rider, King, has made little effort to actually drill any sort of manners into Jack's head, allowing instead for the beast to act as he sees fit; after all, Jack has made it this far on his own. This isn't to say however that King allows himself to be walked all over by Jack, the two see themselves more as partners than one more dominant than the other. 

That all said, Jack's habits have changed some. He generally prefers to be in King's company opposed to being alone, and while previously he used his calculating intelligence simply to survive, he has found joy simply in games and fun.
He's a sucker for food puzzles.

Red Crested Crane by Shivali-Lorekeeper
Hōtō
Jack has a Red Crested Crane Companion!
Hoto is a devilish bird, interested in trickery and lies. He gets pleasure out of other's misfortune and King has begun to suspect that Hoto has been messing with Jack's choice of ladies, possibly introducing them to males that might make Jack's litters a little less "his". King hasn't be able to catch the bird red-handed yet however.

RELATIONSHIPS



Equis 680 by Shivali-Lorekeeper

Equis -- Rival

Equis is a law enforcing lass. While smaller than Jack, she's formidable and definitely worth turning heel and running away from. This doesn't mean Jack can't try to lay the moves on her when he can, but she--and probably her mate--don't seem to appreciate that.
________

Shera 730 by Shivali-Lorekeeper

Shera -- Cousin

Shera is a relative of Jack's, one of the few he knows about and thus also one of the few lady Shi'vali in the world Jack actually won't flirt with. Although he's still more than willing to be charming and polite enough with Shera since who wouldn't want to brown nose their rich cousin?

Jack is open for other relationships!

PORK CUTLET

You google Pork Cutlet and tell me he don't look like one.

Pork Cutlets Rider is Umami
Pork Cutlet, or just Porky, is an easily startled, cowardly Hinshu. He bolts at loud noises and cries when faced with anything new or intimidating. Luckily he is in the company of Umami; someone who easily learned how to convince the Hinshu into anything; with food. Porky is astoundingly food-driven, sometimes to the point of stupidity. Like seriously, do not throw food off a cliff expecting he won't jump in after it. 

He's generally sweet-hearted, submissive, and values his relationship with Umami greatly. However Porky does have a short-tempered and impatient side to him and while he's a scaredy cat, he can get pissed. He'll complain or roar while backing his ass up and out of danger hoping you won't notice.

Brown Potbelly Pig by Shivali-Lorekeeper
Rumproast
Pork Cutlet has a Brown Pot Belly Pig Companion!
Rumproast is a young gilt and just like Porky, is a coward. She's a bit sharper than her Shi'vali partner but easily panics. That said, she cares deeply for Porky and is absolutely loyal to him and rider Umami. Rumproast often joins Porky on adventures in order to be his emotional support and adviser.

RELATIONSHIPS



Khan 175 by Shivali-Lorekeeper

Khan -- Friend

Pork Cutlet has a fairly hard time making new friends and having something to bond over. He never had difficulty with getting to know Khan however. The glutton has an impressive stomach and an excellent taste for eating to excess. Porky relaxes just fine around Khan as they pig out.

Porky is open for other relationships!

Seonmul

Name Meaning -- Gift/Present (Korean)

Seonmuls Rider is Shakuhachi
Seonmul is no spring chicken but he is always acting like a cub. He's fun-loving, clumsy, irresponsible, and always in the mood for a good joke. He has little shame and honestly doesn't mind a joke or prank being turned on him (but expect him to return the favor). He's loyal and in fact pretty intelligent, it's just he uses all his intellect on being a creative idiot. 

Seonmul and Shakuhachi work well together. Little Shaku does look odd on the back of this giant but Seonmul is actually quite docile with him and sees the world from the little guy's perspective. They easily work as one, even if the result is just goofing about. 

The two have known each other for a long time, they are best friends.

Grey Potbelly Pig by Shivali-Lorekeeper
Baba
Seonmul has a Grey Pot Belly Pig Companion!
Baba is an elderly sow that Shakuhachi found for sale at the market one day. She was advertised as soon to die and thus saving you the work and mess of doing it yourself but Shakuhachi just saw her as a wonderful addition to the family, particularly as company for Seonmul. Baba is shockingly smart, wise and with her worldly years is not an easily surprised pig. The assumption always was that she had lived on a farm all her life but that has been called into question. The silent Baba has never given an answer.

CEREMONY OF RIDERHOOD


•  Bonding [Shakuhachi/Seonmul]Seonmul and Shakuhachi had known each other since Shakuhachi was just one pup in the litter. Shakuhachi, the little raccoon dog boy, had beat the odds and grown into an adult--although you wouldn’t know if from looking at him. He was still a baby-faced pudgy short and bright-eyed boy. Seonmul was significantly more ‘grown’ looking.
He was a Yana with the intimidating face that only a mother could love. Well, a mother and a certain raccoon dog boy. He was much older than the canid, but Seonmul could no longer comprehend the time before Shakuhachi was in his life.
He adored the happy boy, and made the mighty beast feel like a cub again. It felt like he were one of Shakuhachi’s brothers. And definitely the nicer one in that category too while we’re on the subject.
It’d been awhile since Shakuhachi and Seonmul had seen their family or even gone where their family had once lived. He had found safety within the shady rocks not too far outside a Sarnai town

º CoR Seonmul 416 for Machati by EYREUY º
End of the Road [Umami/Kinpaku Shakuhachi/Seonmul]Ah, it was going to be a long night. Kinpaku and Umami had finally settled into their lives in a town. Umami finally had himself some good clothing and Kinpaku had a beautiful saddle, lovely reins, and the collar of her dreams; one made out of an incredibly girly obi. They were a mix-matched looking pair, Umami with his drunken look and dark colors next to her finer, brighter appearance, but inside they were both just as foul and prissy. They worked well together too, like they had known each other for years opposed to the few weeks it had been.
Yet according to the locals, this was nothing. There was no proof of their bond besides some dumb trial. That alone was not enough to make Umami nor Kinpaku hoof it up some huge ass dangerous mountain in the dark. No, nope. What really got them moving up the mountain was the trust level the locals lacked for a pair that hadn’t done this ridiculous task. If Umami and Kinpaku wanted to keep their comfortable life, then they were going to ha

RITE OF BONDING


•  Home [Shakuhachi/Seonmul]Seonmul lumbered over the barren hillside up to the top of the very peak. From there he could look over all of the land that the raccoon dog family, his family, called home. The Yana stood there, at the very top and looked out over the land. His eyes searching for something in particular, but nothing really stuck out in the current light. Trees, rocks, and a rotten old wagon drew long, dark shadows that one could easily hide behind.
But there was one shadow that stuck out and Seonmul’s eyes centered on it. It was tiny next to everything else, but dark with the sun at his front, and his back to Seonmul. It was a raccoon dog, and one that Seonmul had watched grow up. He was off on his own while what little scraps of his family were left alive busied themselves with work or sleep.
The Yase, the family pet, had the urge to roar, and alert the others to the runaway, but he held his tongue. No, he couldn’t do that. This little boy was as much his owner, his master, and his family

SEARCHLIGHT

Named for the dog from John Reynolds Gardiner's Stone Fox novel.

Searchlights Rider is Adigard
Searchlight acts is loyal and low-energy. He is patient and gentle. He can enjoy the company of screaming hyper children or having his mane braided. He is a competent Shi'vali, and even thought he's an older one, he is perfectly capable of looking after himself. However he adores company and will seek it out. Sometimes to a stubborn degree. 

Searchlight's fatherly personality meshes well with Adigard and his way of life. Adigard depends on Searchlight a lot to look after his two kids, to protect them, to help make sure they've got a healthy diet, and even help teach them in ways he cannot. Adigard's children, Feu and Dolce, call Searchlight "Paw-Paw". 

Adigard, in return, treats Searchlight like an equal in the family. Entitled to the same protection and benefits that any other beloved relative ought to have.

CEREMONY OF RIDERHOOD


•  Bonding [Adigard/Searchlight]It had been a few weeks since Adigard and his small family had moved to Shimora. This was their new home, and Adigard had used the rest of their savings to buy up an empty plot of land close to the edge of a forest. The land had previously been part of a farmland, but the elderly couple in charge of it passed and the property was divvied up to be sold in more affordable chunks.
The land was the perfect kind of soil for a rabbit man like Adigard. The soil was not too rocky for the easy tilling of a farmer but it wasn’t so soft and loose either that crops would have been pulled out by a bad rain. For the rabbit, it was perfect for digging out a warren for him and his two children. It took him only a day to put a roof over their heads and within a week the burrow was big enough that the three each had their own rooms. There was even a living room, bathroom, and kitchen. Not all the tools were in order yet, Adigard would have to save up before they could have decent kitchen supplies

º Riding [Adigard/Searchlight] by Machati º
End of the Road [Umami/Porky Adigard/Searchlight]“The last guy I went up here with was a nut.” Umami ended what was a very long rant. The merman could rant for hours and unfortunately for his companion on this mountain hike, Adigard could listen for hours too.
“Mm.” Adigard hummed half-heartedly. Okay, he could listen for hours but that didn’t mean he was enjoying it. He had his palms on his Hinshu Searchlight’s shoulders, resting lazily there and finding some sort of small amusement in just feeling the rolling of his Shi’vali’s anatomy. A small form of amusement, yes, but Adigard would take anything at this point.
Luckily droning conversations was the only shortcoming of the merman named Umami. He’d come up these mountains focused on the mission just like Adigard; to have his own Shi’vali tested and their bond approved of by the locals. Although in all honesty Adigard did not journey up this forest for the people’s sake, they could shove it for all he cared. He was do

Finally, my like... eight year old mac or however old she was can finally get ready to take a break x_x Now I'm not fully moved over to my new computer. I need to get SAI and I won't be 100% moved until I can do my commissions all on the new computer.

I intend on moving the PSD files of my unsold adoptables over but not every single PSD file for every single adoptable. I'm not going to be happy to blow off the dust of my old laptop to pull up a PSD file later down the line--if my Mac even survives that long (or if I don't just reset it to factory settings or whatever)

So please: If you've ever wanted the PSD file for a commission or adoptable you've gotten from me, PLEASE contact me sooner opposed to later!

My mom uses dogfoodadvisor.com to get the best unbias opinion she can on the dog food she buys for her army. The dog food is rated 1 - 5, and I asked because I'm a poor ass I'm not gonna buy my way into checking dogfoodadvisor for myself. So I had her check a few supermarket brands for me: 

"4health grain free was rated a four because of a few controversial items like beet pulp which is fiber, and beef tallow which is high in saturated fat.

KINPAKU

Name Meaning -- Gold Leaf (Japanese)

Kinpakus Rider is 
Umami

Kinpaku is the loyal companion of Umami the merman. She sticks closely by his side at all times and becomes anxious in his absence--wildly so if it wasn't a separation he demanded of her. Like a service dog, she will go with him literally everywhere, including into buildings. Often times he will outright refuse to enter a place if she cannot come with him. She is his most common mode of transport, but is also obedient and clever enough to follow even more intricate commands. 

In return, Kinpaku is spoiled rotten by Umami. She is a Shi'vali that adores the finer things in life just as he does. She is never hungry for long and rarely dirty. She likes feeling pretty, and being praised by Umami. She can be spoiled and rude to others, just as her rider can be. 

Kinpaku is typically wearing a kimono's obi around her neck like a bow.

CEREMONY OF RIDERHOOD


Bonding [Umami/Kinpaku]Crawling out from the watery depths and onto land was an exhausting task for a mermen, but Umami did it. He would do anything to get away from that loathsome prison down below and be as far away from the bottom of that dark water as he could be; and that meant going onto land. Anything, anything to be free. Even if it meant essentially crippling himself.
This was no magical story tale where the mermaids and mermen miraculously grow limbs when dry, or from touching the warm sandy beaches, or just for convenience for the writer’s sake. No, Umami the merman had to drag himself onto land. Pulling inch by inch with his arms and the thrashing of his long, heavy tail. The warm sands to those lucky story-made mermaids was, but to Umami it felt like sandpaper as he dragged himself across it.
He was only thankful that he was spared any onlookers. Such a humiliating display of such a mighty, noble beast such as he… No, it was the dark of night, not that he had planned that far, he rea
º Riding [Umami/Kinpaku]By the time Kinpaku and her rider, Umami the merman, had found a road and made it into a small town, it was dark. For them, it was perfect. They weren’t seen by others. Kinpaku, a once spoiled Hinshu now barely scooped out of the life of a stray, and Umami, who was naked. Maybe onlookers wouldn’t think much of a naked merman, but Umami sure did.
The two wouldn’t even stay long in this town. It was civilization, and yes that relieved the both of them, but it was just a small town. They were broke, and there would be no work nor want for either of them within a tightly knit community like this. What they could do, however, was get what they needed before they moved their sorry butts to bigger fish.
With night, the town had gone quiet and Kinpaku padded along the streets as quietly as her heavy paws could carry her. She had Umami on her back, and he was crouched close to her braided reins gripped tight in one hand. He patted her shoulder lightly for encouragement. The tw

End of the Road [Umami/Kinpaku Shakuhachi/Seonmul]Ah, it was going to be a long night. Kinpaku and Umami had finally settled into their lives in a town. Umami finally had himself some good clothing and Kinpaku had a beautiful saddle, lovely reins, and the collar of her dreams; one made out of an incredibly girly obi. They were a mix-matched looking pair, Umami with his drunken look and dark colors next to her finer, brighter appearance, but inside they were both just as foul and prissy. They worked well together too, like they had known each other for years opposed to the few weeks it had been.
Yet according to the locals, this was nothing. There was no proof of their bond besides some dumb trial. That alone was not enough to make Umami nor Kinpaku hoof it up some huge ass dangerous mountain in the dark. No, nope. What really got them moving up the mountain was the trust level the locals lacked for a pair that hadn’t done this ridiculous task. If Umami and Kinpaku wanted to keep their comfortable life, then they were going to ha

RITE OF BONDING


•  Wonderful Waters [Bonding: Umami/Kinpaku]It was cold. Uncomfortably frigid even. Especially for merfolk like Umami. The waters of the world were cold too and there were actually many merfolk that were quite resistant to all forms of cold. Not unlike one of those fat blobs you land-walkers call Seals.
Umami was never that kind of merman. He found the cold hard to stand and in the waters, he felt no better. It was one of the things he always loathed about the depths. On land, there were actually means of getting warm. Means you could never find in a lake or the oceans.
Ironically the solution was water.
Cut off from lakes, oceans, and rivers seemed to do hot springs some good. Something that Umami more than related to. He sunk into the wonderfully warm waters with a delighted “ahhh!” He sunk in deeper, right to his chin, and relaxed his head on the edge of the pool.
He were deep in the mountains at a small resort that had managed to survive the fires of late. Likely due to being so close to these miraculous pools of

RITE OF THE EMPIRE


•  What They Want [Imperial: Umami/Kinpaku]It was dark out when Umami and Kinpaku approached the palace.
Things had gone very differently recently than Umami ever imagined. The Khan’s life was always in danger, of course someone of her power was always in danger, but Umami never expected that he and Kinpaku would have been her saviors. It was never his intention to be a hero, although he was sure Kinpaku would have enjoyed the glorious attention.
Walking down in daylight, they could have been greeted by great cheering crowds just as the others that got wrapped up in this had but Shakuhachi and Seonmul weren’t hiding from anything. Umami enjoyed a high class life and that meant people seeing his face, but never a whole city. He feared what might happen. Would they paint portraits of him?
Admittedly that kind of sounded amazing. He did have a nice mug and Kinpaku was deserving of such attention. Especially after how she overcame the assassin’s horde of sleek, deadly Ko’kumai. She was lucky to come out of i

I'm on a mac! An elderly mac that I was told last year I should be chucking in the trash for a new laptop fff I'm saving up and I intend on going for a windows this time. Now, I haven't used a windows computer for art or anything since like 2009, so my information is probably way outdated.

Tell me what laptop you guys think would be wise of me to get TT_TT Since I have been on a mac so long, please feel free to treat me like a dumb baby and give me all the details you want or can :heart:

EL CAPITAN.

My worst enemy.

I'd like to pass on what I thiiink I've just discovered about my macbook pro and cintiq? So cintiqs tell you to have your computer 100% off when you plug in and turn on your cintiq. Apparently it can cause an electrical surge! I've talked to other artists that haven't had this problem at all but I've been listening since it really doesn't take my computer that long to go through the process anyways :T 

However all mac users should be told that El Capitan has a tendency to turn off your USBs when your computer is asleep. A lot of people haven't been able to charge their iphones and whatnot because of it and I do believe that it's been giving me some interesting problems as well.

Because I've been having a disturbing amount of sudden shutdowns from my computer. I did clean it just in case it was that but nnnope. It seems like it might be the computer essentially allowing itself to be punched in the face by my cintiq. It is a little reminiscent of when my charge cable was broken and it caused surges at times; macs turn themselves off to avoid being damaged.

Personality: Gapper was raised on a large breeding ranch. When he didn't sell, he was kept around to manage vermin like rats and coyotes. A decade later, he's finally been sold and is off the farm. While genuinely sweet-hearted, Gapper is an unintentional jerk because he lacks any manners. He's pretty energetic and loves to hunt small things but he'll do anything for treats.
