shadowl

This is Sheila, Avian’s shadowl (shadow owl). Named after Sniper’s rifle, Sheila is a peppy little owl who loves getting petted. She loves to steal hats and other items, hiding them in Sniper’s van somewhere. Avian found her as an owlet in the forests of Umbraxious (land of darkness) when she returned to Aliquamis for the war. Sheila is quite young, therefore tries very hard to be like Sir Hoots a lot. She loves to bring her mommy dead mice and lizards, hoping to get pampered.


So bright. She can glow if she releases her bio-luminescence. I’m allowed to have a blue owl if Spy has meals in his teeth okay? Okay.

ATTENTION Y'ALL ATTENTION! I WAS ONCE THE ENTITY KNOWN AS ‘SHADOWL’ BUT NOW I AM REBORN AS 'AUTHORLOCK’

IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND MY NEW URL THEN I PITY YOU.

I WILL PRESIDE TO REMIND Y'ALL OVER THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS IN VARIOUS STYLES OF SPEECH

What's sandmanlock?

Sandmanlock is a crossover between BBC Sherlock and Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. The comic you see tagged as sandmanlock on my dash is called ”Endless Dream”, and it’s by navydream. Go read it! It’s adorable and funny and angsty and you can read the whole thing on sandmanlock dot tumblr dot com. :D

i’ve been (and will be for the next month ]: ) too busy to do much goatlings stuff, but heres my entry for this months fairytale contest and two wips. one is a tribute pic to all the contest ads from last year and the other was my winter HA w/ kragpat (my horrible little winter shadowling)

We wore cloaks woven of the secrets we knew, the terrible truths we bore, the precious knowledges we had won. We shrouded ourselves in dark memories and bitter words, and we thrived.
 
Others had names for us. Assassins. Whisperthieves. Shadowlings. To some we were nothing more than fables, the proverbial wolf lurking in the woods, the monster that hides under your bed at night. Yet others truly regarded us with fear – these were the ones who had terrible things to hide. 
 
We haunted them. We learned their secrets and cut them down: with words written and spoken, with our blades.

again from this questions post

1. Which dragon needs a super soft bed to sleep on like a pretty princess?

Hmmm Niamh certainly has the softest bed but I’m not sure she’s the one that *needs* it. I think I can see that title going to Eila. Inconvenient considering she’s a battle mage and also part of Rhamnus’ patrol group, so she spends most of her nights away from the lair. I’m imagining her pacing around finding the perfect spot of ground, the perfect arrangement of leaves and moss, her patrolmates groaning because they can’t go to sleep until she stops making noise.

2. Which dragon begs someone to play Go Fish and then gets genuinely angry/sad when they lose?

I don’t have a super good read on my shadowlings yet but my instinct is that Scath would fit this description. She’s probably trying really hard to be a good Shadow dragon - card games and tricks! - but is … maybe not that good at it. 

4 was answered just previously

8. Which dragon would make the best shadow puppets?

OOooooh my first instinct is one of the shadow dragons but nah. It’s definitely Casimira. Her Charge is the clan’s progeny, and though she was never a motherly sort before discovering that, she’s fit into the role well. She’s a big grizzled guardian and never thought she’d be curled around a gaggle of hatchlings, making shadows on the cave wall with her tail and listening to their squeals of delight. She never thought something like this would be her Charge, but it is, and she will guard it as long as she lasts.

16. Which dragon goes trick-or-treating into adulthood?

Ooooh you know with the mechanical stuff they’ve got going on I think Tāwhiri would get really in to making complicated costumes every year and want to go show them off. They’d probably accompany the hatchlings as an excuse, but they’d go regardless with their big mech suit or NotN marionette or any number of large and ridiculous contraptions.

19. Which dragon starts karaoke night?

Melia! She’s very musical and very confident in her skill and she loves to share. So maybe it started with just performances from her, but then she would have urged others to participate and it would have become a bigger event.

22. Which dragon never writes the right there/their/they’re?

There are two very distinct answers to this. There is Lore, who knows better but does it intentionally to drive Liora up a god damn wall, and there’s Magnus, who’s just a big gentle giant and in typical tundra fashion just can never remember which one is write. Or is it right? But then what is wright …
