So. Many. Chocobos. And all shiny.
Likes: being very loud, running around doing "secret stuff", and androids (...Don't look at me like that.)
Dislikes: sassy siblings and being told what to do
Did I really just name a chocobo Rubedo? I did. Are the names of one black and one white chocobo now obvious? ...Possibly. Rubedo stands at 7 inches tall with crest. Geez, my young chocobos get bigger every year. ...........Okay, that makes sense in one way, but...
(Oh, Xenosaga. How I love everyone but Shion.)
Likes: parkour, managing to reach places much higher than he ought to, petunias
Dislikes: staying at ground level, daisies
They get more "interesting" as I go along, don't they?
Just the first round of itty bitty baby chocobos I made. They turned out adorable, didn't they? ...And hungry-looking...
Priscilla (left) is not one to back down. She's not one to start fights either, now, but she'll hold her ground with chocobos three times her size. She's also been known to learn how to bark like a dog, which, while not encouraged, is rather too amazing to dissuade.
Danielle (right) is definitely a star gazer. Of course, she's also extremely easily distracted. By pretty much everything. Well, we all have those days. Weeks. Lives.
Penley is the younger, smack in the middle of his awkward stage and feeling every moment of it. All he really needs is a reassuring word once in a while, though--he's much too bright a bird to let something keep him down for long.
Perth is, very frankly, built like a tank. In times of war he'd be on the front lines leading the charge; but luckily with these times of peace, you'll find him patrolling the chocobo pens and keeping them protected.
Payge (left) doesn't seem to know that she's a... well, she. She plays in the dirt with all of the boys and refuses to sit still for preening just like the rest of them. So long as she's happy.
Una (right) is a little bit like everyone's mother. She's such a kind, sweet chocobo, liable to take care of absolutely everyone she comes across... including handlers. Well, they could do a lot worse than to have a chocobo mom.
Pablo (left) is quite the outgoing chocobo. If they had stand-up comedians (and they might, I do not pretend to know), he'd be one of the best.
Ramone (right) is Pablo's best friend, but he tends to prefer to stay out of the spotlight. After all, it's just a bit safer there.
I'm calling her my birthday present to myself this year: Onyx the crocheted chocobo. The better part of two days went into creating her, with touch-ups done on the third.
I love her. I absolutely adore her. She was certainly a "learning experience", as I did her entirely on the fly with no pattern, no direction, no anything but a totally insane thought and a crochet hook. ...And yarn. ...And later wire and glass beads, but you get the idea.
She is, in fact, very poseable! Her wings move and stay in place, she can tilt her head, look around, and even bend down without falling. Her legs are sturdy but capable of being posed as well (they have a decent range of movement whee they connect to her body).
