Oh god. The more bad fanfic I read, the more I realise that I write bad fanfic.

Or I did, before I almost entirely stopped writing.

I just started reading a Merlin story, and less than half a paragraph in there are all the clich├ęs - lithe, pliant, soft, moon-kissed skin. Ack. I think I've used all of those at some point in the last ten years.

Not normally all in one paragraph, but still.

*hangs head in shame*

You know, I totally blame you. *wink* You and Easter and the fact that Eragon was on TV and then I saw DRAGONS in your post and clicked them and now I have those funny looking eggs that apparently need a lot of TLC and then they will hopefully become dragons as well.

So, yes, you're totally to blame.

Also, I have NO IDEA whatsoever how those view things work. I fear they are going to die a horrible death.

Still blaming you. *innocent look*

Just thought I'd let you know ...

Yours are very pretty btw =)

Heee, I saw that it works on your page as well. I refreshed it a couple of times and it counted all of them =)

Did you see my eggs? Will I havepreeeetty dragons? I really hope i will get enough people to see them to hatch. And I'm not sure I am posting often enough to manage to get them clicked often enough. =(

http://dragcave.net/user/darkmoore <----- my scroll thingie. So I better give this link out if I send someone to click, right?

And yes, I figured they are addictive. Do you think my dragons can have eggs too? Or do the need to be of the same breed?

Okay, so I feel kinda stupid now. I thought this was just some fun game where you hatch some eggs and they look pretty and that's it. *headdesk* I would never have dreamed people are breeding to get a specifically looking dragon or that I can't just wait around until one of those cute, cheesy looking eggs comes along. Or well, one of those sparkling ones. The likeliness of that to happen seems to be rather small. And I DID wonder about the sheer amount of green eggs. *sigh*

Anyway, I think I am in way over my head here and research is in order.

Thank you so much for giving me one more addiction. I TOTALLY blame you!

Not funny.

Also, after some careful reading and exploring, the first euphoria over "dragon eggs, yay!" gave way to the realization that I'll most probably end up frustrated and disappointed.

Why you might ask. Well, as I see it if I'd like to have any other egg that is not GREEN (I totally fell in love with the Icedragon) I will have to have an insane amount of luck. Apparently even the pretty common eggs are mostly only available at the cave entrance and I spent (just for fun and because I had time) my evening trying to get an INTERESTING egg. I didn't even have any delusions about getting a paperegg, a dino or a cheese egg. Guess what? even after hours of eggs being constantly released at the cave (abandoned cave was pretty empty) I wasn't even CLOSE to getting anything other than green eggs. Maybe my page is loading too slowly, maybe I am doing something wrong. Fact is i realized that if you are too slow and you have nothing to trade (which would require you have something interesting to trade in the first place) then I am bound to end up with .... green eggs?

Which yes, is slightly disappointing me already.

Anyway, still waiting for my first hatchling, so this is not something that has to concern me at all right now. Just saying. As much as they are addicting, they are also quite a source for disappointment.

Of course you can say patience is not one of my strong points and you would even be right. I guess in the weeks to come I will just have to hope I will get "lucky" at one point.
