Go here and reload until you get five quotes that sum up your philosophy or outlook, then post them.

1) Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.
-Arthur Ashe

2) When you encounter difficulties and contradictions, do not try to break them, but bend them with gentleness and time.
-St. Francis de Sales (Looking at YOU here, JHVH!)

3) To resist the frigidity of old age one must combine the body, the mind and the heart - and to keep them in parallel vigor one must exercise, study and love.
-Karl von Bonstetten

4) The most important thing is to be whatever you are without shame.
-Rod Steiger

5) I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.
-Og Mandino



...You know, sometimes I think I don't give humans enough credit.
zhilbar: (Humansize dragon)
Deep within one of His halls, Zhil adjourned His Day of Appeals; there was enough for one day, and while much had gotten done much remained to do. One thing in particular weighed on His mind as He spruced up, having His scales offer a particular shine before stepping across the worlds to where He might seek His fiancèe Naoko, but He tried to shake it off; this was a happy day, and it would remain that way if He had to physically cram joy and acceptance down people's throats!

Still, no reason to think that way at the moment. But as popping in on one's woman unannounced was just so gauche, He ended up right outside the nearest building instead. What better way to keep her privacy inviolate?

Knocking at the nearest door, He tried to look as unassuming as a six-foot golden Dragon-God might, which was rather more than one might expect. No ceremony here, just good old saurian style!

"My love is like...wo
My kiss is like...wo

You're the full package - and you let everyone know it!

((Continued from here))

Leading Sashan through the portal, He came out in an opulent Oriental foyer, smiling and chatting with the guy behind the podium in badly accented Cantonese. {Hey there, Li Pao! How did the foot operation go?}

Some short chatting later, Zhil and Sashan are safely ensconced in a booth as various white-shirted folk bearing trays and platters rush by. Sighing gently, He smiles at His guest... Then remembers He's not who she's interested in, sorta.

"I've been wanting dim sum for a good few years, now. Still, what was the subject at hand?
zhilbar: (Sigh...)
It's always so tedious when a Christian deity goes through an 'apocalypse' phase.
zhilbar: (Zhilballoon)
This one's a shout-out to a charmin' lass of my fond acquaintance. A marvelous textual sparring partner, a lady of infinite enthusiasm and emotions that run high and deep, with an unflagging appetite for hotness in all its forms! This one's for you, gal.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] kali921!!!!


Wishing you nothing but the absolute best.

zhilbar: (Sitting)
And deep in a lair, we have a dragon grown once more, reflecting upon another year come and gone with a goblet of Chablis in one paw.


"To much watching, and less doing... Perhaps the next year might hold better." Draining the glass, a casual flick sent it smashing into a wall.

"Happy birthday to me, then."

((*Mun's birthday has arrived once more!*))
zhilbar: (Hatchling)
Warily entering the Nexus just long enough for Naoko to lead him over to the dimensional locator, he dropped in a scale and got the coordinates. The girl wanted to be the one to input them, but he'd do it himself.. Can't let the vassals do everything, right?

..And in a few moments, they found themselves atop a broad, flat mesa looking out over a deep valley, one of the high Watching-Points of Exaurdon Isle. Zhilbar was home, all right!

Except.

..Where were all the dragons? They should have been at least a few in the sky at this hour; there was always something that needed to be done! Heck, there's the Clan cave right over.. there....


Oh, Io.

This wasn't home. That forest, patchy and growing out of smashed log flinders, debris and half-molten refuse all in front of the much-withered Clan cave, the nearly eradicated Watchpost nearby... Who would do this? Why were so many of the mountains crowned with lava? If it wasn't for the layout of the land, he would swear this was Bloodtide island.. WHAT HAVE THOSE REDS DONE!?!?

He wasn't aware of the murderous rumble coming from his throat as he swung about, trying to see the extent of the devastation. Likeiwse, he couldn't tell the constant telltale touches of Time's inexorable hand, the utter erosion of the Watchpost or how the mountains stood so much smaller and weathered, the beach surrounding them from the beating tides.. Oh, no. All he knew was that he HAD to find someone who was to blame.

Hopefully Naoko can understand that he's a touch preoccupied right now!
zhilbar: (Hatchling)
DOESN'T ANYONE KNOW HIGH DRACONIC ANYMORE!?
zhilbar: (Grumpy)
Wonderful.

ANOTHER Marvelverse is trying to invade the Nexus. Honestly, don't they ever get sick of it?

Oh, and the Nexus now has a flag. Spoke with a couple naysayers, and the Fae went ahead and proved herself an utter idiot all over again. Honestly, if it doesn't involve bloodshed maybe one in ten of those glamoured ponces will get the joke. Ah, well, Dlet and Triv rose to the occasion; it came out well in the end. Even got a chance to snark with Kia and hug Dessa again!

All in all, an adequate experience.. I suppose.
zhilbar: (Snrk!)
Saved for thy eyes )

This thing is immoderately amusing.
zhilbar: (Whut?)











..Why did I take this again?
zhilbar: (Draconinjaween!)
Zhilbar smiled through his ninja mask, setting out tasties on a side table for those who would come by His temple at [livejournal.com profile] _theoi.

"Let's see.. Opals for that Down-South flavour, some rubies and sapphires of course, diamond-cream eclairs are a must, and can't forget my specialty seed pearl cookies!" He smiled, adding several more gems as an afterthought... and a bowl of gold coins.

Oh, all right, there's some chocolate gold coins mixed in, as well as some sugary nonsense here and there. As if that was anything remotely tasty as Earthfruits such as these!
zhilbar: (Looking Down)
There's a Dragon-God, singing softly to himself upon a hoard.

"Happy birthday to me.

Happy birthday to me.

Happy birthday, old fellow...

Happy birthday to me."

He heaves a sigh.

((Mun's birthday))
I remember so many things about her.. The fire in her eyes when someone messed with those she cared for, the light of her laughter and the strength of her heart, that warm, soft, and slightly amused look she got when she looked at me for the calf-eyes I was making at her..

The rich beauty of her voice when she said she loved me for the first time.

The way the touch of her hand never failed to set me all atingle.

The way she looked so peaceful asleep next to me, and I always thought my heart would burst when I looked down on her.

And now she's gone.

I'll never be able to soothe her hurts again, never dry her tears and make her grin, never take her flying with me...

She's gone, and this little medallion is all that I have left.

And even gods have a right to cry.

The Dance

Zhilbar got His outfit together, looking forward to the coming evening. Now, to get His date...
