~Others can join in the fun at TaxidermySecretSanta


                     Wishlist
~I'd love to own a bobcat pelt, it doesn't have to be mountable, as I'd love to have just a wall hanger <3
~I adore bones, antlers, horns, teeth, claws and skulls, so anything that falls in that realm is wonderful! (smaller pieces are better, as I don't have a whole lot of room to display things...)
~Coyote, fox, ermine, rabbit, and various other pelts or scrap pieces would be great for crafts and totems
~Gemstones and fossils (natural gemstones, please <3 I'd LOVE to get a piece of opal, but it's so expensive :c)
~Archery tackle! I'm getting a longbow for Christmas and I'd love to get the tackle for it. Either that or leather pieces to make a quiver/bracers/etc. :)
~Disney pins/disney things. I love the villains and Maleficent and Scar are my absolute favorites <3
~Writing stuff: pretty stationary, sealing wax/stamps, pretty-looking pens/colored pens..
~Something like a donation to WWF or a wildlife foundation in my name. :)
~Art/badges of my character, Nora! I'll link to her! I'd love to get badges/artwork of her!
~Pretty/cute jewelry (inexpensive is fine! I love bracelets and rings, and ear cuffs :) )

Number 3, Nora is my fursona/personal character. She is a Manx, and soon I'll have an actual ref, and not just this one. I'll put it here when I'm done with it. She has/will have a quad and an anthro version o.o

Ailith Verid - all of nine years old - wrinkled her nose at the prospect of feeling like she was being squished on all sides.

She held a cat tightly in her arms, subjecting the creature to a nearly vice-like grip.

He didn't move to escape or swat at the girl, however, rather, he pressed his muzzle against her cheek, almost reassuringly.

The man in front of her, a wiry, dark skinned young man, turned, motioning her to follow him.

She heaved a sigh and stepped through the glittering portal, the feline in her grasp purring loudly.

Her grip on the car loosened as she looked around the room in wonder, nearly backing into one of the many mages in the Citadel's gate-room.

She squeaked loudly and spun, curtsying as well she could while holding a cat in her arms.

The Mage smiled down at her.

"You are fine, child. No harm done."

He looked up, noticing the Mage tasked with finding the girl, smiling at him.

"Good evening, Metias."

The dark-skinned Mage bowed in return. "To you as well, Master Hyron."

As they spoke, Ailith tuned them out, inspecting the one Metias had called Master Hyron.

Her curiosity - or desire for knowledge - got the better of her, and Ailith stepped closer, using one hand to tug on his robe, burying her face into the cat's fur.

"'m Ailith," she mumbled softly, not looking up to meet his eyes. She knew she should, as the rank of Master was much higher than that of the Mage assigned to bring her in.

Hyron knelt down so he was eye level with her, smiling softly.

"It is a pleasure to meet you, little one," he said, genuinely. The cat tilted his head, and made a soft rumbling sound in his throat.

"This is Mal."

She held up the cat slightly, lifting her head and meeting his eyes squarely.

"He thinks we will meet again. With others. Not just us."

She turned slightly and grabbed Metias' hand, falling quiet yet again.

Metias nodded a goodbye to Hyron and started towards the living quarters, leaving the master puzzled as to the cryptic words.

FIN.

Laura
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

I'm an artist, a writer, a singer.

I am many things, insane included.

I have my moments of biting sarcasm, though you can always count on me to listen and give advice.

I like taxidermy, and I am studying to be a zoo keeper. I am a Christian who believes that Jesus died for my sins, but that Nature has a higher meaning.

I love the outdoors.

Books are my life, and my friends mean the world to me, as do my characters and my family.

I am feline-minded, feline-hearted: I identify strongly with Snow Leopard.

Who am I, you ask?

I am simply me.

You may not like it, you may want me to change...

But I won't.

Take it or leave it, darling, what you see is what you get.

No questions asked.

Just dropping in to say hi :)

And also, I picked up your suggestion on naming my OC... I know it was a while ago, but I just traced it back to you and was wondering if you knew

Hi!

I didn't see that o.o

(Then again I haven't been on DA for a while o.o)

I love the new name though, and I'm glad I was able to help out! :3

Hello there! Hi! 
Welcome to %EverythingPagan  Glomp! 
I are very happy to have you join us! Boogie! 


First thing is first, I'm not a teacher, at all. I just wish to have an active running Pagan group on deviantART. As a result, if you have anything you wish to share via blog, whether it be something in the news about paganism, something from another website, or even a meet you have been to and wish to share, then you are more than welcome to submit. The only catch, it has to be related to paganism. Haha~ Giggle 

If you have any Pagan related art then we'd love for you to upload it and show it off in our gallery. I love deviantART! 

Any questions you have regarding anything then please don't hesitate to ask, I'm more than happy to help you to the best of my ability. OMG MOAR POEMS! 

Thank you once again for joining %EverythingPagan. I hope you enjoy being apart of the group as much as I do running it! Love
