Neopets Account onto which you wish to adopt Singing: Ixyona
Neopets Account names: Tgrcheergrl (main)
Pet(s) you wish to nominate as an example of how you treat your pets: I suppose Themsby would be my prime example as I've put the most work in him (550 HSD, most NP spent), but Ibve is my Beauty Contest queen and Bloodsworn was named after my fiance, so they're all prime examples of the love I have for pixels.
Please tell me a little about yourself as a Neopets player: Scratch out player, replace with addict :D Since I've completed most of my own pet goals, I've been fostering with TNO since Nov 2010, and I've adopted out about two dozen pets (urgh I accidentally deleted all my information on Ibve's page). Besides fostering, I have been focusing a lot on account improvement over the almost decade I've been playing; I've really worked on avatar collecting, submitting user content, and mastering css over the most recent years. I'm also an avid Altador Cup player and try my hardest to hit All-Star every year. Since the new Battledome has been released I've been training very hard in preparation for defeating the D.o.N. challengers - I have become quite the avid Battledomer as of late. I'm also quite obsessed with game trophies and am trying to earn a few more to spiff up my main account. The Habitarium is always open and I can be seen playing Key Quest quite often (I've almost hit 2,500 games!) and betting in the Food Club. Like I said, addicted.
When it comes to my pets, I strive for perfection and am always redoing their pet lookups and pet pages. The shortest time I've gone without remaking them was two days. :P They're each their own little characters that have manifested in my mind. Please excuse any empty space that you see on their petpages, I'm currently redoing all of them! The only one that's even partially done right now is Bloodsworn's. I'm very incredibly hard to please when it comes to my work.
Please tell me a little about your plans for Singing and why you want them:
BC trophies are a must for all my pets, so I would draw her lovely pictures from the get go. (Darn Krawk being a hard category or Bloodsworn would have his by now!) Singing would have a few drastic changes. Although I adore faerie peophins, the best inspiration I have for a pet's character comes from real life inspiration, and Singing's is much darker, but is so incredibly personal to me. Bear with me as this seems a bit disjointed, but it's not something I've shared with many people.
She is based off a gorgeous, wonderfully talented and tragic friend I'd known for far too short of a time, named Celeste. Her and I were extremely close and played a video game together where her name was Ixyona, hence my side account name - which is why I would want Singing there. She would be the only pet on that account, as a sort of tribute to Celeste.
I'm quite careful of the G rating of Neopets, so I can't get very detailed in why Celeste has passed, but Singing would be remembrance of her life. There's really only two things to know about her, both of which wrack me with empathy any time I think of her. Celeste could grab the eye of anyone in the world. She was stunningly beautiful, kind, and was so, so charismatic. But she had eyes for only one person, who she lost at the age of seventeen, and had never loved another soul. Celeste also loved to sing, before she had an awful accident a few months after she lost her "one" that stripped her of her beautiful voice for the rest of her life, and marred her neck with a horrendous scar. The full story would move anyone to tears.
Singing's character is more of a ghost - she isn't held back by the limitations of her physical body, and can sing a haunting lament as she searches the world for the person she holds dear. G rated, of course. No love or anything like that in her story since it's expressly vorboten. I would probably make her dear one's character into a sister that she lost. I hope somewhere along writing the story that Singing could find a peace that Celeste never experienced.
Singing would be a priestess or a sort of mage, since that is what Celeste played in our game.
Honestly my head is just wrapping around her character so much that I could ramble forever. She would be adored. She would be a grey Ixi for my Ixyona. The look of despair in those eyes comes quite close to what I'd seen on Celeste. I would make you proud of how much I put into her character, I promise.
Her petpet would be a grey Faellie named Celeste.
Her customization would be: Adventurous Ixi Wig (she was a brunette), A Rolling Fog, Neovian Twilight Background, Gormball Necklace, Friendly Glowing Lantern, and Stunning Ixi Robe and Makeup. The Romantic Music Track would also be included in her customization.
I accept that Evie does not guarantee I will be chosen as Singing's new owner: Yes
I acknowledge that no payment of any sort will be made for Singing: Yes
I am sincere in this application, and I am not applying just to trade or adopt out Singing: Yes
I agree to contact Evie if I can no longer take care of Singing: Yes
I have read and agree to the pledge of good ownership: Yes
As a side note - Jetzao isn't mine, I'm holding her for a friend until their side account ages. I'm also finishing getting pet avatars, so I will have a few different pets on my main that aren't mine as well.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my app, Evie. Apologies for the length c:
