Hey!
You! Yeah, you!!

The Dragonfly Project
A project to brighten other people's days!

Game
I am slowly but surely breeding my way through the Coats for each Breed trophies. Stubborn little me be like, "I'm missing a 1% coat? Let's NOT look for it in horse sales! Let's BREED IT!" It's gonna take a while . . .

I am willing to spend a rather large quantity of equus on a pegasus with the Retired Apple coat "Позволь мне упасть...".  I'll pay in passes or equus! It's a pinkish-brown pegasus falling from the sky. 

None of my horses under Veins of Ichor are for sale, period. Currently, no unicorns are for sale, either.
I am not "competitive", and this is not my first account. I am, however, friendly and (mostly) knowledgeable.
Feel free to talk to me and ask me questions!

Personal

I am a bibliophile. A hardcore book person. Admittedly, though, I tend to gravitate towards children's books or classics to avoid the sordid romance. I also dearly love movie soundtracks and symphonies, both playing them and listening to them. I primarily play flute and piccolo, but can also play alto saxophone. I fit under the titles of 'nerd', 'introvert', 'philosopher', 'artist', and 'musician', which are in no particular order. I enjoy philosophy, if anyone wishes to discuss anything with me.

D&D is a wonderful game. Gnomes are fun.

I prefer to not go by my name online, so if you dislike my username, you can call me Ryuu. 

I probably won't tell you my gender, for various reasons. You can use whichever pronouns you like. Makes no difference to me! Or my exact age. Have fun guessing. Y'know.

Please introduce yourself before giving me a friend request. It's nice to hear (see, technically) "hello" every once in a while!

My favourite characters are often the types of people who wear a 'mask'. They don't show the emotions that they feel inside. Often sly, if they have a plan no one besides themselves will hold all the pieces. Characters that are super mysterious are also fun! Therefore, favourites include:
Severus Snape -- Harry Potter
Kaz Brekker -- Six of Crows
Angela (and Solumbum) -- Eragon
Sandor Clegane -- Game of Thrones
Legolas -- LOTR
Xerxes Break -- Pandora Hearts
Mosca Mye -- Fly by Night/Fly Trap
Marvin the Clinically Depressed Robot -- Hitchhiker's Guide
Spock -- Star Trek
Alther -- Septimus Heap

Okay, listen: I know I'm only now watching Avatar for the first time. But I'm adopting Uncle Iro and Zuko, and if you hurt them, I will come find you.

I don't really like villains that are pointlessly evil. They need some kind of backstory. I love people who are almost charmingly wicked, or those who are sly, but not actually the bad guy. (Okay, some pointlessly evil villains are fun. Like the quirky Disney type.)
I also have a soft spot for characters who are simply fabulous.

Most books written for the teenage audience hardly qualify as literature. I swear, the teenage mind is not as romance-centered as books make it out to be. It's ridiculous! 

A good friend of mine wrote the book 'Trolls for Dust'. Their pen-name is Pixie Beldona. It has quite the intricate story line - an interesting read! It involves a reality T.V. show that is not what it seems! *this is my not-quite-so-subtle advertising spiel* I believe the book is available on Amazon.
