I had big troubles finding what presents should I choose for each of my friends.
Somehow it came to my mind that Ysera would never have this kind of issue, because she always knows what everyone dreams about.
Then I had the idea of this artwork.

And...yes, of course dragons have Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone of you and every dragons in Azeroth

You're very welcome! You really have a talent, all of your paintings and even your sketch made under a boring university class are gorgeous. :)
(When I was bored like you in my own university lectures, I drew stick men first, than started to write mini-stories) :D

Yeah, these two certainly deserve so much more... Their fate are so sad, especially Ysera's. She was such a good character both in the games and the books, and her death scene was so sorrowful :(

RIP Ysera, I would accept whatever happen as the fate comes, what really matters the most is that Blizzard didn't let Alexstrasza show any sign of grief or even awareness of this tragedy. Alexstrasza is so protective to her beloved sister from the novel. She needs to be there.

Yeah, you're absolutely right, they were sisters, so close and inseparable. If I remember correctly, there was a short conversation in BFA between Alexstrasza and Merithra, Ysera's daughter talking about her mother.... but that was nowhere enough for what she deserves.
Perhaps we will hear more in the next expansion, albeit I fear that they will choose to corrupt or kill off Alexstrasza. She is now the only remaining original aspect, as we know that Nozdormu will turn into Murozond in the future...
Not that I would play with the next ones, I stopped at Mist of Pandaria, just still follow the lore and love the world in general.

In fact, I had been writing my so far best and longest story set in the Warcraft for 5 years or so, dividing it into three books and already having plans for a last, fourth one :D

WOW, story writing is not my thing at all, I am terrible at it. Alexstrasza should be fine. IMO, she is more like an wise adviser now witnessing every major historical event on Azeroth. Kalecgos and Wrathion might still need her guidance. At least I could not think of anyone else that could replace her role.


I am still playing WOW, just doing sth casual and farming mounts, never has any chance to do raid as Blizzard made the gear grinding so unpleasant and hopeless.

I hope you are right about her, she suffered far enough. Neither could I come up with a replacement, so many of the red dragonflight are dead.  And I am intrigued by Wrathion, and the Dragon Isles he went to.

Really? I heard that there were problems with gearing, but didn't know it was so bad. It was hard and most importantly time-consuming already when I played. One of the reasons for why I stopped playing, apart from my friends leaving, was how many hours progressing required almost every single day if I wanted to keep up. And as my main was a tank, I had to get the highest gear possible, and literally I was grinding without any fun. Albeit I have to say, I was almost lured back by Classic, as the best times for me were that, BC and LK.

Well at least you are amazing at painting and drawing, while I may like writing as a hobby, but I don't think I am that good at it actually. I did some dragon drawing when I was a child, but my skill remained at that level, and of course, at drawing stick men.
Although I really like my Warcraft story, and I really should gather enough courage and time to finally start to translate, and then publish it here. Who knows, perhaps some people would actually like it?

I might be a little too sarcastic for my opinion about hopeless grinding experience. It's more like there is nothing interesting to grind for. That's probably all, what you grind for everyday is nothing special. It's not very attractive.


Welp, share it if you feel like it, don't push yourself too hard in it, just do it for fun. that's all I think what matters for a hobby.
