yooo!!! I hope you are having a super awesome day. this is my application to adopt peachsilk and peachdiamonds. welcome friend.
sooo let's get this out of the way.
I was not forced to make a petpage application for peachsilk and peachdiamonds.
I'm making a petpage application because I ramble and I like to add in pretty pictures when I talk about stuff.
okay so now that that's out of the way... I AM LIKE. super chill. I have decided that I don't care about writing formally or avoiding acronyms and smilies and stuff. I hope that's okay. it always made me less excited to work on my pets when I was forcing myself to write in a different style than I'm used to. so I'm not gonna!!
oh and I'm calling peachsilk and peachdiamonds by the nicknames I came up with for them for the rest of the application. peachsilk is pic and peachdiamonds is colo. hope that's okay
oops I'm rambling. I know you wanted kinda short applications so I hope that maybe talking in my normal chat type makes this less of a pain to read. HAVE FUN!!!
who's yo guuurl
my name is christine, but most people on neopets know me as chichi or cc. I spend most of my time on this site chatting on the boards (hi appchat!) and doing dailies! my favorite things to do here are make layouts for my pages and help my friends with coding. I log in pretty much every day, even if it's just for a little while.
in real life, I'm 23 and I have a full time job working as a web developer for a little software company in my city. it's a really cool job and I like it a lot! I first became interested in web design and development through making layouts for my pixel pets on neopets.com. lol! so I have been here for a long time. honestly, neopets has influenced a lot of things in my life. it's true even though it's kind of an embarrassing thing to admit hehe. my dream job since I was 12 years old has been to be hired as a programmer for neopets. maybe someday
my favorite food is sushi, my favorite color is pink, my favorite band is owl city, my favorite drink is diet coke, I lovelove studio ghibli movies and anime, I have a cute boyfriend, I want a candy blue ford fiesta, aaand I'm short and blonde. I don't know what that stuff has to do with anything
I log into my main account and first side account almost every day! my first side, mini99mini, is my oldest account, created in december of 2002. the accounts listed as inactive are accounts I made when I was super young and forgot the birth year I listed for them when I signed up. I guess that's what I get for using a fake birth year I'll keep trying to access them until I guess the correct year, but for now they're inactive!
why should you pick me even.
I used to be super competitive when it came to applying for pixel pets on www.neopets.com. lol. over the years applying for pets has really improved my ability to accept criticism I think. I used to try to come up with the most ridiculous, elaborate stories and designs to try to ~show up~ my competition but it never really worked out in my favor. lol! I don't even think I had very much fun writing those kinds of stories, but doing so did help me improve my creativity.
basically, I used to be too concerned about what other people thought of my designs. now I play neopets for fun, not for approval, and I do what I want to do pic and colo's designs are not complicated. they're just fun and colorful and that's the way I prefer to design my characters these days.
also, I have literally been playing neopets for half of my life. LIKE. I'm 23 and I started playing when I was 11. okay, so that's over half of my life. obviously I am a dedicated player but really! there has never been a time where I wanted to permanently quit playing this site. I do tend to take a hiatus every now and again for varying lengths of time but I always come back. so no worries there! right so let's get down to business. (to defeat. the huns.)
these are my lil pixel frands.
I have characters for all of them even if they have no descriptions posted on their lookups or pages.
I horde stuff
you can look at my account stats on my lookup if you're interested. I know some people aren't as interested in account ~prestige~ as others when it comes to adoptions so SHRUG! it's up to you.
trophy count: 25
my account has some cool trophies I've collected over the years. I'm like, super bad at games though, so, you know. I do what I can. my favorite trophies are from winning userlookup spotlight twice. I'm gonna enter again someday but I dunno when.
avatar count: 223
some people care lots about avatar/stamp/neodeck counts so I'm just posting it here~
I also have:
13 site themes
my battledome stats are kind of lame because I wasn't into battling before the battledome was revamped, hehe! now dabsidan is my battle pet and I train him every day.
gallery size: 51
I LOVE TOMATOES you should go look at my gallery it's cute and I have put lots of hard work into it and yeah.
okay so. I have never really considered any uc kougras or pteris to be dream pets of mine before. I think they are super cute and I love all uc pets because they're nostalgic to me! that's why I'm not just looking to adopt or create the converted versions of these guys. I'm super interested in adopting them because I love the character concept I have in mind and I lovelovelove how their names match. I just want you to know that they aren't my dream pets in case you want the peaches to be adopted to someone who has been dreaming of uc kougras and pteris but I am totally just as interested in adopting these cuties as the next person is also like? I have never even owned one unconverted pet in my whole entire neopets life?? ? ?
plans plans plans
so super basically my character concept for pic and colo is?! a banjo kazooie type character. lol! okay so maybe it's not the mosttt original but the whole reason behind me wanting to do this sort of thing for their design is that they are uc. uc pets make me nostalgic and so does banjo kazooie. see what I did with their nicknames? pic colo?? (okay it's piccolo. I'm a band nerd and I think their instrument names are cute okay fight me.) so with that in mind I'm thinking I'm gonna draw them in all sorts of video game duo-themed outfits for their beauty contest entires~ like. mario and luigi! banjo kazooie! ice climbers! x and zero! yoshi and baby mario? the possibilities are endless. or at least there are so many possibilities that I'm never gonna run out of things to draw.
so that obviously means I'm gonna enter both of them into the beauty contest. I showed you the beauty contest trophies on my pets so you know that I'll keep my word. I have stats on every single one of my pets so I'll train pic and colo too. uhh what else. I give my pets matching petpets and petpetpets so you know I'mma do that for pic and colo! probably lots more stuff that I'm forgetting, but I hope that this stuff shows how much time I spend on this site and what a cool neo-mom I am to my pixel babies LOLLL......
I'm planning on changing pic's and colo's gender to male. I have the lab ray scientist registered as a challenger on my main account (the account I'd like to adopt on), so this would be no issue if you're okay with it~ if you would rather I didn't change their genders, that's cool too. it doesn't play a huge role in their character concept.
alsooo I'm not interested in trading them. I only trade pets I don't have a character concept for and like. I don't want to trade them lol. not now or ever. if I ever left neopets (lol not likely have you seen how long I've been here?) or lost interest in them (um no) I would adopt them out as a pair, pretty much just like you're doing. fair warning though, I'd probably be biased towards my appchat friends if I ever did end up adopting them out

for my reference that's under 100k for pic and abouttt 200k for colo. probably just going to buy these items and put them in my gallery. #yolo
also I forgot to pick out petpets and petpetpets?! aaa I'm sorry but I promise they'll both have some sweet matching friends.
YEAH LIKE I SAID making layouts for my pets and profiles is pretty much my favorite thing to do on neopets. so the other day I figured out how to vertically center petlookups?? I'm pretty pumped about that. I already have started on a lookup design for pic and colo. is that weird? I hope that's not weird. I'm just super hyped for these guys. I would post a preview here but it's super sketchy and stuff so I'm just not going to
so pic and colo pretty much have to have intertwined petpages. I don't know if you've ever played banjo kazooie--if you haven't, just know that it has some really cute and witty character dialog~ I think it would be super fun to make like, a text adventure that ~looks~ like you're playing a game... if that makes any sense! I try to make pages that you wouldn't expect to see on neopets. I have a page with a similar idea in mind but the screens will be a lot easier to create on my other page hehe. click here if you want to see it! I didn't have enough time to make any examples or sketches of the idea I have for this, but I promise it will be totally cool!!
I reeeally didn't have enough time to get done what I wanted to get done for this like I mentioned, I work 40 hours a week and the deadline was kind of last notice, hehe. it's all good though. I hope you still had fun. if you have any questions at all you can neomail me. thanks for taking the time to do this!! peace!!
