Welcome to Sunlit's UC Faerie Ruki project page! I am looking for a W/DN UC Faerie Ruki to join my neofamily. For the entirety of this application, they will be referred to as Dahlia, a female, but do note that I do not mind what gender Dahlia will be, as I can change their gender. There is a navigation to the top right: hover over it to use it. Thank you for visiting my project page, and if you are interested in adopting out one to me, or to help me on this journey, why not send me a neomail?

all dreams are pleasant when they begin

Shall I describe it to you? It was a summer of vines
the mead flowed like the clouds over summer air
and we danced to the steady breath of the sea...

Her father owned a boat. He always scowled when she called Fair Myha a boat, and reprimanded her with his own thoughts. It was a repurposed galley, given to him after years in service to the royalty of Lyones. Totara was the name of the wood used to build it, supposedly hailing for the lands of the Fels, somewhere deep south, and her father proudly stated that it couldn't rot, probably due to some magic of the Fels that she couldn't recall. Either way, she did admit it was quite grand: its sails caught the wind like the moon catches the tides, and the oars powerfully swept through the waves like the Lions did through the menagerie. Inside, a myriad of treasures lay hidden inside countless drab crates, waiting for a curious hand to reveal them. The boat slowly meandered to and from the Ports of Athelion like how her mother used to wander through the gardens, praying for her husband's safe return. Poor Myha, they used to say. Her wrinkles make her look like a woman twice her age.

Dahlia had only been on it a handful of times, for every time he came home he would be off sooner or later. He attested that he went on grand adventures full of peril and heroics: to where, he never had the time to tell. But other gifts she got, the finest silk from Hainan, a heavy fur cloak from Winterhaven and once even some sweet Felian perfume, which they stole from pirates who had first stolen them from the Shadow Fleet. She had only learnt this after questioning the sailors, who doted on her ceaselessly. They too had children, scattered in ports around Gaia, who were also waiting for their return.

Her family was close to the royalty, and she had served as a lady-in-waiting to the Princesses, whom she loved as her own sisters. They were confidants, for both their mothers were always off to some place or another on duty. Many adventures were had, sometimes crawling onto the ramparts to get a closer look at the sea, or running though the kitchens cooking up mischief. Her own mother couldn't care less, spending her time earning more of those wrinkles, and the Queen thought that their behaviour was charming, as long as they didn't do anything too severe.

The Crown Prince was another matter, dark and moody, permanently painted with knitted brows. As much as the Princesses were younger than she, the Crown Prince was as much older, although it didn't make much difference. They all agreed that he was too broody to ever love someone, and that the future of the kingdom was in peril. Ah, if only someone could love them as much as Dahlia's mother loved her husband! It was well known that the Queen did not love the King even half as much as Dahlia's mother loved her husband, and the princess lived sourly for this fact. Whether this was reciprocated, the answer was well known, but it did make for a good story nevertheless.

At some point, she realised that her father had been home for longer than a week, and asked to have tea with him. He declined, mentioning they they should drink some of the 'good old fermented stuff', and they had a lovely evening with mother, drinking until the sun yawned below the sea, and cast shadows on Fair Myha's furled sails, having their portrait painted.

Tomorrow would be a court ball, and as always, they had been invited. Invitations to the merchant class were rare, but due to her father's former status as Captain of the Fleet, they were always cordially invited. The King and he had a close companionship, with the former feeling enough strength in their bond to gift her father the finest of his fleet when after receiving a grievous injury. On the recent trip her father had neglected to bring back a new gown, so while her mother fretted Dahlia was dressed in a gown borrowed from the Princesses. The ball was eventless, and she was forced to endure the company of the Crown Prince (who, it seems, had not improved in the years gone by). He had mentioned that they should go to a walk to see the new portraits: The new Tyrian purple highlights your eyes quite well, and so Dahlia was dragged across the palace to inspect them.

Dahlia herself didn't find anything eye-catching about them, other than that the Tyrian purple must have cost a small fortune. However, the Crown Prince was disdainful, and had complaints. The dye is fake. Really? She wondered. How can you tell? The Prince was rumoured to be experimenting with magical family heirlooms, but she didn't think he had learnt so much. There is magic in the paint. Tainted by the Shadow Fleet, no doubt, the cheapskates they are. He paused for a second, and looked at her thoughtfully. In fact, would you like to have a look at this magic yourself?

She would always curse herself for that, to be betrayed in such an innocent way.

the best laid plans of mice and men

Dahlia Rosenburg and her companion. As you can see, I plan to extend the story above when I ever adopt/trade for her, and I will probably use this layout for her petpage with a few tweaks to fit. Examples of my pets who have a decent amount of story on their petpages include Aoza, Feyi, Rexu and Sunbond if you wish to see proof. I would also put an adoption agency on her petpage, where I would adopt pets from the pound and train them up to 240hsd, and adopt them out! Personally, I do not maintain my petlookups to a high standard anymore due to the captchas, but generally I write my thanks to those involved in helping me reach a permie c:

I also plan to attach a Faerie Peo as her companion, or keep the petpet that she comes with on request. I admit my np gathering rate is slow, hence why Todu and Joza haven't been painted, but I will get there in the end! Her customisation is more simple than those of my other pets: the main reason for this being that she is a UC, and so she does not have many options. I have NC and GBCs that I am willing to trade for her Magical Spring Kingdom Background, which I feel represents Lyones very well. I would also train her to 240hsd, as a few of permies (e.g Aoza, Evla, Feyi, and Niwi) have also been trained to 240hsd, which is a simple endeavour. I generally do not increase the intelligence stat of my permies.

She would reside on my side adverity_speckled with Aoza, Sunbond and Tekyre. Of course, I can also promise the vanilla things as well, a loving home, being fed and all that (those are all a given :D), but if I adopt Dahlia, I can also promise to give her back to you if I ever leave neo, or whatever plans you would like to keep in place for her. The pain of seeing your adoptees unfed and rotting is too much to bear ;n;

meet my neofamily, aren't they a lovely troop?

Aoza the Maraquan Draik

In the country of Hainan, Aoza is the title given to Head Priestess of the Hirata Shrine. There have been many who have been given the rank of Aoza, and all possess kindness and as part of their core traits. I love Aoza very much, she is the result of a rather convoluted trading chain c:

Cers the Gold Draik

My tribute to the Game of Thrones character, Cersei Lannister. Also to the witch Circe, a cunning character in the Odyssey. I like to think of her as Laur's twin, as they are both stunning Gold Draiks!

Dupi the Yellow Gelert

Dupi currently holds my coding portfolio, and I am planning to turn her into a Grey Korbat in the future. She currently has no story, on account of her petpage being occupied with my coding lookbook at the moment.

Evla the Silver Shoyru

I created Evla myself in the last purge, and she holds a special place in my heart. My portfolio is kept on her petpage because she will stay on my main account forever, as she is my main BD pet. In my universe, she is the ancestor of the Lyonian Royal Family!

Feyi the Plushie Korbat

Feyi's story is that of a person from low society trying to make their way up the ranks. I remember offering on Feyi a long time ago but getting rejected, so it's interesting that I traded up and got a different offer :o I'm not too sure if I want Feyi to be male or female.

Jewu the Wraith Draik

She has a character, the Jewel of Tamlyn, but since Fantasy is on her petpage I have no idea where to put her story. It is a strange coincidence that both Niwi and Jewu came to me as Wraith Draiks, so I consider the pair twins as well!

Joza the Pirate Bori

Joza is my real life nickname! She is in Spyla's court as the Duchess of Winterhaven, shunned from the Aristocracy due to her position as a Clan Leader. Hers is a story of an outcast and betrayals, and life trying to survive in the harsh wastelands.

Juya the Transparent Draik

The guardian at the waters of the underworld, who convinces the souls of the dead on to reincarnation, or sends them back, depending on the orders of the gods. I was in love with her name for the longest time, and I did try to trade for her, but I would have never guessed I would adopt her!

Laur the Gold Draik

She is verifiably one of my most adored pets, and currently has the most work done on her character! In history she is remembered as a fair and just Queen, but in her time women were not meant to rule, so she faces struggles related to that. She is the first of my characters to reside in Lyones c:

Niwi the Wraith Draik

Floral is my pride and joy, and Niwi is its guardian, owing to the fact that her name is easy to remember. My CSS is available to use on Floral, and Niwi has a little side story in Laur's: she is the Head Gardner of the Palace Gardens.

Rexu the Island Usul

I adopted Rexu from a UFQA board, and his story involves being torn in allegiances between Tekyre, his Patron Angel, and Sunbond, his fellow primordial. As a result of this, he has been made immortal and one of the last primordials ;n;

Sunbond the Maraquan Ixi

All the problems in this story can be attributed to this thief, who stole the second sun to save her people. I adopted Sunbond on a quick board as well, she reminds me of my neo nickname, Sun!

Tekyre the Faerie Xweetok

It was way back in 2011 when I adopted Tekyre :o At first she was the Angel of Justice, but after she tried to vouch for the Sun Thief, they cast her down and locked her away. Now, she is the angel of revenge, sworn to take back the second sun.

Todu the Red Usul

Todu is a adventurer, travelling across my universe. He was exiled for trying to depose the Felian Royalty, and he also happens to live a decade before Joza. I spent 3 months looking for a name to trade for Todu, that was quite stressful!

Dahlia the UC Faerie Ruki

Dahlia is a member of the Merchant class, who, before being betrothed to the prince (ha!) gets locked away in a painting. Now, she has to find her way out, and gain vengeance for her time spent in the alternate reality of paintings...

why exactly do I want a uc faerie ruki?

Most neopians do a comparison of the UC version and the converted version, but there is a different reason why I would like a UC Faerie Ruki. I have never considered myself a fan of UCs, and there is a very special reason why I like them in particular.

My story begins a couple years ago before the inflation, even before the purge in which I created Evla. I was a bit less than a teenager then, and new to neopets. I had just started to venture into the world of adopting pets, and I found the perfect on to adopt. She was a faerie xweetok, converted, but my first love. At that point, I had resolved to stalk the foster to find what they were looking for in an owner, and in doing so I saw they had two UCs: A UC Darigan Aisha, and a UC Faerie Ruki. The Aisha is not important to this story, but the Ruki is: For the foster had placed their adoption agency on their UC Faerie Ruki, and I loved how kind of them it was to do that. I have resolved from that point to continue what that foster did: To adopt pets from the pound, and zap them into new colours for loving owners.

To me, the UC Faerie Ruki is the representation of that sentiment, and as someone who has never cared much for UCs, it is the very reason why they are the only UCs that I will ever truly love. With the current PC climate, I find that adoption agencies like this won't be very successful, which is why I have a different goal than zapping pets. You will notice that my only permanent pet on my main is Evla, as she is my permie BD pet. The next 4 spaces are for adoptees from the pound, so that I can train them to 240hsd and adopt them out, to help other neopians achieve their goals. I believe that little steps can go a long way, and that those sbd pets can help achieve a variety of pets: Customs, Names, and UCs if their training is continued.

Perhaps I could put the adoption agency on any permie of mine, but to me I have a strong association of that adoption agency with the UC Faerie Ruki. But I know that the UC Faerie Ruki will be my endgame in neopets: I have achieved my dream of starting up Floral and Fantasy, and I will continue to work on my pet's characters, so this is something for me to eventually work towards.

why should you choose sunlit?

1. I care a lot for my pets, in my own way
Sure, I've never read many books to my pets, and everyone visits the neolodge, but I love my pets in my own way. I fawn over their customisations (such cuties), and sometimes I just catch myself procrastinating, staring at the lovely art some kind people drew for me of them. All my permies are cuties, and hold great sentimental value to me. I give them customisations and characters, and I code spiffy layouts to accompany the art I requested for them. Neo is my special space to unwind and relax, and I love that my permies help me to accomplish this.

2. I am active on neo
I train everyone on my main account (with the exception of Evla, who is too expensive to do so), and I run my css site, Floral. Floral is my masterpiece on neo, and a dream I had been wanting to make reality since I knew how to code. From time to time, neopians come to me with questions about code, and I'm always happy to answer!

3. Perhaps you should judge me for yourself
I like showing off what I have done than talking about it, so let me direct you to some of my favourite petpages:

My Character Pages: Aoza, Feyi, Joza, Laur, Rexu, Sunbond, Tekyre and Todu
My Sites: Floral, Fantasy, My Portfolio and My Coding Lookbook

whatever else that doesn't fit

Current Trading Chain:
VWN 450hsd + 1.75mil custom - Flae the White Krawk, in training with 515hsd and counting
