One Shots: Stones in Silence

When they’re not pooped on, defaced, or used as a backdrop for narcissistic selfies, statues have a special quiet dignity and magic all their own. Each tells the story of a person or place and literally sets it in stone for future generations to appreciate.

And then comes the gradual discovery of these things, like Katriana: “I was in Dragonfall Guild Wars 2 I’ve been working on getting a Skyscale the old fashioned way and took this shot of a statue of Melandru (I think).”


Hikari prepares for the future: “The first descendant “It’s much better this time and looks quite nice.”

I have to wonder how easy these outfits are to put on and take off. I can imagine that after a five-hour dressing process, this warrior decides to live there for the rest of her life and hopes there will never be any toilet problems.


Lucky Jinx relaxes World of Warcraft Silverpine Forest while impressing a nearby banshee with the future inflation rate. “Eggs will be expensive How much?”



“While I wait for a world boss, Guild Wars 2 Players like to show off. Here is a colorful kitten.”

Who has the power?


And last but not least, here is my little Lore Master Lord of the Rings Online She explores Ered Luin with her bear hovering protectively behind her. After all, you never know when a level 6 wolf might attack!
