a younger gale and how she met her wyvern, vientos.

a little background info on vientos!! gale stumbled on him during one of her little adventures to the mountains near her village and found him injured. Essentially took vientos under her care and ultimately became his owner because she ended up getting attached to him. 

Vientos also has a scar running from his left eye to the bridge of his snout due to his previous owner, who before abandoning him in the mountains, attacked him with lightning magic. As a result, Vientos can’t see out of his left eye at all, and during his first few months under Gale’s care, was afraid of loud and spontaneous noises. 

He’s basically an oversized dog that’s too protective of Gale and only likes Gale’s immediate family and Yves. If he nuzzles you with his head you have been approved by him lol. 

I’ve been tagged by the lovelies @ir0nshield, @mega-mathi, @marvelingjules and @nephirax to write eleven random facts about myself! 

R U L E S: Tell your followers 11 random facts about yourself and tag 11 people. Tag backs are allowed but if you do get tagged again you must not repeat any of the facts you mentioned in the previous round. The facts can be absolutely anything, whatever comes to mind first.

Alright, so here we go!

  1. I have never kissed anyone so I’ve never had my first kiss. I’ve just never been someone to kiss another person for the hell of it and I’d like my first kiss to be a good memory! It doesn’t have to be like in the cheesy romance films but it has to be special to me in my own way. 
  2. I’m the tallest person in my immediate family because my mother and father are short while I tower over my brother by like an inch or two. I question where on earth I got my height from but I’m not complaining! I’m like 5′7″ by the way so I’m not a giant. 
  3. I’ve lived in three countries throughout my life so far and those countries would be the UK (where I was born), Kenya (my mother’s homeland) and Nigeria (my father’s homeland). If you ask me where I enjoyed living the most, Kenya is always my answer. 
  4. Anime and K-pop have always been my guilty pleasures, not so guilty anymore because I’ve found people who enjoyed as much as I do. My first anime ever was Tokyo Mew Mew which led to Sailor Moon and the first ever K-pop band I listened was Big Bang. 
  5. I’m a sweet tooth so I have a weakness for sweet things such as chocolates, cakes and yes, give it to me! It used to be worse when I was a kid but I’ve grown out of it slightly. But yes, sweet things are delicious. 
  6. I used to do trampolining which I was quite good at and I think I reached badge seven before I changed schools. I’d like to go back into it again because it was so much fun! 
  7. Autumn is my favorite season because it’s not too cold yet but it also means LAYERS! Plus autumn leaves and all the colors are just so beautiful, it’s definitely the best season next to Spring. 
  8. If you were to ever offer me coffee, tea or hot chocolate, I will definitely go for hot chocolate and tea all of the time. I just don’t like coffee unless it’s iced and has a lot of caramel and flavor that you can’t even taste the coffee that much anymore. 
  9. I have an insane love for blankets and when I do get my own place, there will be loads of blankets so if you ever visit me, you will be warm! 
  10. One of my goals is to hopefully get over my social anxiety one day, even it’s just a little bit. 
  11. Cheese toasties are one of my favorite snacks/meals/foods of all time because they’re so freaking delicious! 

I’d like to tag @mrsstark-rogers @squeeful @wormdelivre @onemuseleft @lesbianhawkeye @hello-shellhead @downeyjraddict @hale-rogers @starspangledsprocket @faedreamer and @asexualsantaclaus

Of course, only if you’d want to! 

i keep seeing this character meme floating around again and i remember a while back i told myself i’d fill it out one day so i’m gonna attempt to do JUST THAT!! i’ll try to do one question a day and we’ll see how it goes lol

gonna use Sammie, of course lol

1. Does your character have siblings or family members in their age group? Which one are they closest with?

nope. sammie’s family is pretty minuscule at this point… literally his only immediate family that’s still alive is his dad who’s MIA due to his job and his maternal grandfather who lives in another town (whom Sammie met once as a youngster and would rather not run into again… he’s not very nice). Sammie is an only child, as were his parents, so he has no siblings, cousins, aunts, or uncles to speak of, unfortunately.

There’s the paradox: we see the beauty and we see the dark side of things; the cornfields and the full sails, but the ashes as well. The Japanese have a word for this dual perception: mono no aware. It means something like “beauty tinged with sadness.” How is it that we must hold what we love tight to us, against our very bones, knowing we must also, when the time comes, let it go?
