Hello everyone!~ :heart:

The time is soon here, it's alomst just a month left till Christmas and I have been talking a lot about making a Christmas giveaway, so here it is!~ 
The Christhmas givaway is for my watchers, cuz I don't really wanna just give points to random people... I wanna support my watchers <3 However, it doesn't matter if you're an old or a new watcher of mine.

The only thing you need to do to join is: 

:bulletgreen: Fave this journal 
:bulletgreen: And be a watcher of mine ( I'll be checking )

And yeah that's it :3 You don't need to make a journal about it, but it would be very appreciated if you did of course <3

Not just one person will win, lots of people will get points. You see, for every 100 points I have will one more person win. So right now I have about 500 points, which means right now 5 people can win 100 points each. I'll be trying to get more points until christmas so most likely will more than 5 people be able to win 100 points each. Though, if lots of people join then I'll buy more points so many more people have a chanse to win. <3  Oh and all winners will be selected randomly through this website  ( that's why I need you to fave the journal ).

What is a Secret Santa?
"A Secret Santa is a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group are randomly assigned other members to whom they anonymously give a gift" -Wikipedia
The gift, in this case, is a drawing!

How does this Secret Santa work?
First, make a wishlist like this and comment below with the link.
You will receive a note at around Dec. 1-3 with the person you are drawing for
You have 20 days to work on your gift, and you must submit it between December 25 and January 1.


- Do not tell anyone who you are drawing for. Don't ruin the surprise!
- Wishlists cannot be in It must be submitted as a journal.
- If you move accounts, please tell us to avoid any confusion later on.
- Do not delete your wishlist until you've received your gift.
- If you have any problems with your partner, please note the group!
- You are not allowed to use bases.
- THIS SECRET SANTA IS WATERDOGS ONLY. Meaning that the only characters allowed in a wishlist are waterdogs! (by alfeddy)
- People who do not submit their entries will not be allowed to participate in any future events. I honestly hope you guys don't do this, as it's really unfair for the person you were supposed to draw for.

Drawing Criteria

- Your gift does not have to be a masterpiece, but you should put your best efforts into your gift. After all, would you be happy if you worked so hard on someone else's gift while all you got was a drawing that looked like it took a minute or two?
- Again, you are not allowed to use bases. It must be your own art.
- Put effort into your gift and spend time on it. Don't think that it's just a gift, I shouldn't really work hard on it. Think of it as an art trade.
- Backgrounds are not required, but it'd be great if you included one!
- Please draw what you want to see in a gift for you


- The waterdogs can either be MYO or official! It doesn't matter uvu Waterdogs are a closed species by alfeddy yo
- It doesn't matter if you have 1 waterdog or 10! <3
- Your wishlist must only contain waterdogs, just in case your secret santa is confused!
- I will reply to your comment if your wishlist is accepted. If it isn't, I'll tell you what to change.
- We might require backup artists in the future, if there are people who don't finish their part. /:
- If you are willing to be a backup artist, please note that in your comment!!

SonicBoom, Sonic, Amy, and Sonamy thoughts.

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 20, 2014, 8:54 PM
I've been having this discussion with a few friends lately and I just kinda wanted to write my feelings out about things.

Here's a few thoughts about the new Sonic Boom stuff.

At first, I couldn't believe they would change their designs so drastically, like knuckles suddenly becoming hulkles, or why Sonic needed so many bandages. But after time, I really got used to the designs. I mean, Sonic looks a lot more detailed as a character than just a blue hedgehog with red shoes, his neckerchief really suits him.Tails looks the same I guess, but the goggles and tool belt are a cool addition, you can look at him and clearly see he's a mechanic. Knuckles got some getting used to, but I'm starting to love it. He's in proportion, and it does make sense why he's so big, because he's super strong.

Overall they look like a perfect team. The different heights really stand out and make the team pleasing to the eye. If they were to make the whole team the same height (As done in Sonic X & Canon Sonic) it just really doesn't look as pleasing. I understand why Knuckles became the way he did, I mean if you're new to the whole Sonic thing and knuckles was the same to his old design (Show WAS intended for new fans/kids, after all) then he does actually look like a hedgehog, to me, anyways. When I was younger I instantly thought he was a hedgehog. But if you're to look at him now, you can clearly tell he's a whole other species. So instead of it looking like a team of three short hedgehogs, a short fox and a short badger, they added variety. Two hedgehogs, one short one tall, one badger, one fox and one echidna, who's muscular and big. 

I mean, what looks more pleasing to the eye. This?

or THIS.

Boom!Sonic's personality is fantastic. At first I thought he was a lazy downer that only cared about himself. But as shown in the games and TV show, he's just the opposite. At first he's sure he'd work better alone, but as the game progresses it becomes obvious that Sonic realises that he's stronger together, as a team. He even says "They're not my weakness, they're my strength". Now, would canon Sonic say something like that? Canon Sonic is a very "work alone" type of character, maybe sometimes being accompanied by Tails. I love canon Sonic and always have, he's awesome. But I get the feeling that as the canon games keep coming out, he's more and more snarky, self obsessed and just a major jerk. The way he treated Amy in Sonic Generations really hit a nerve for me. Not only because I'm a huge Sonamy fan, but I feel like what he did was VERY out of character. I never thought in a million years Sonic would treat Amy in such a way. He wasn't flat out nasty to her, but the whole "pushing her away" thing is very unlike him. 
Sonicthing by ProBOOM

Like woah, did he just do that? Even if he doesn't have feelings for her, do you think he'd treat one of his friends like that? From what I can tell so far, Boom!Sonic would never do that to anyone.
Sega Japan reportedly took out that scene altogether, claiming that it was very out of character for Sonic. I agree with ya, Sega Japan. 

While Sonic X Sonic isn't canon, it is very obviously and heavily inspired by the canon series, unlike Boom. So it DOES reflect Canon Sonic in many ways. Sonic X Sonic is caring towards Amy. Even sometimes he may think what she's doing is sappy or something he dislikes, he never treats her badly. He treats her like a friend, and doesn't give off that vibe of "I hate you please stop doing what you're doing" yet, doesn't give off that vibe of "Wow you're kinda cute I like you". So Sonic's just being Sonic. Which is something canon Sonic isn't doing, he's very out of character towards Amy.

Even when showing discomfort, he is kind/jokingly about it and does not push her away rudely.

dd by ProBOOM

In the canon games, they make Amy seem very desperate and ignorant. If I was treated that way by my hero/crush I'd defiantly give up on him and find someone else, not worth my time, he's a jerk. So why does Amy still chase Sonic after all the nasty things he's done to her in the canon games? She seems very pathetic (Sorry Amy :c )
Boom Amy is just the opposite, she's independent and hard-working BUT still fun, caring, outgoing and hilarious. And hey, what do you know? Sonic actually has feelings for her. Canon Amy needs to take a note. Personally I think that if Canon Sonic and Boom Amy were to meet, Boom Amy would very much dislike Sonic.

What I love about Boom!Sonic is that his friends mean everything to him, He loves them all and its quite obvious. Canon Sonic, of course loved his friends, but at times it seemed like he was only saving them because he's the 'hero'. In Sonic Boom it feels like they all have such a wonderful bond together. These guys feel like a TEAM. They're inseparable and he cares for each one of them. he wouldn't just leave them for his own selfish desires, which I find adorable and I mean people could argue that he doesn't leave because he's stuck on an island, but I mean tails DOES have a plane. He could just piss off on the plane with tails. 

These characters are being put to use! Since when did Amy and Tails ever truly interact? What about Amy and Knuckles? Knuckles and Tails anyone? No? What about Sonic and Tails even. Sure, they talk. But that's it. When was there ever a brotherly moment? We never really see how much Sonic loves Tails. Until Sonic Boom. That first episode was downright adorable, finally we get to see Sonic and Tails being BROTHERS. I was even shocked when Sonic hugged Tails, that says something doesn't it? If people are shocked about Sonic showing affection to his friends, then something is wrong there. That's something the canon games seemed to lack, interaction and good moments between characters. In Sonic Boom, they're all great friends that love each other dearly. Sonic boom has hit the nail on the head with personalities. 

They're all strong, all fast and all skilled. but not in the way that they seem overpowered.

Well there's my rant. If you read it all, then thank-you so much :0 I needed to get this out of my system, aha. Also, this is just my opinion on things, if you don't agree that's fine, I don't want any arguments however.
