A couple more of Jack cause he's lovable like that.











Next up we have Ophelia. My only Twinkle-Eye persona. Ophelia is my little Lolita. She's quite all over the place. Both giddy and brooding all at once. Almost as if she can't make up her mind. She loves black as much as she loves neon pink for example. She loves all thing burlesque and morbidly cute. She's quite the performer, rather it's putting on plays of her own design, or performing her fire dances and such. She loves being in the spotlight and also loves coming up with elaborate costumes and is quite the seamstress. If a pony wants a fancy dress, or a costume of any kind they come to Ophelia for her one of a kind pieces. She's friendly to the extreme, and very loyal. A pony couldn't ask for a more colorful friend. She's also quite the cuddler, constantly hugging everyone. Ophelia is a white twinkle-eyed unicorn with blue eyes. Her mane and tail are silver, bright turquoise, lime green, and neon yellow. Her symbol is of my own design, a pink cupcake, with two syringes behind it, one filled with fuchsia pink liquid, the other with lime green. It's a design I plan to get tattooed. Sort of crossing the morbid with the cute.









































Ophelia was brought to life by the talented AeraCura.

Awwwww thanks again CC! I love Ophelia. She's a total cutie.


Now on to the persona that is SO ME.

Northwest. Northwest was born out of my love ***cough*absolute*cough*obsession*cough*} with the show Deadliest Catch and the crew of the Fishing Vessel Northwestern. It was love at first sight and I am utterly obsessed. I have been fortunate to meet the three Hansen brothers once, and Sig and Edgar by themselves twice, so three times in one year. In any case. She is me.


Northwest is the most daring, adventurous pony one could ever hope to meet. None could be braver, and though she has plenty of moments where she falters, she fakes it pretty well. She is a water pony, through and through, despite being an earthie. She started as a greenhorn on the fishing vessel Tapperhet, worked her way up to Deckhand, then Deck Boss, and she now Captains the boat fishing for Alaskan Kings, Opilio Crab, Cod, and whatever else strikes her fancy. She is out-going, more than a little crazy, and couldn't be more loveable. She braves the 60 foot swells and below zero temps and 40 knot winds all for the love of her chosen profession, the water, and the allmighty adrenaline rush. She stays on task, but also has no problem letting loose, having fun, and playing pranks on the other fishing vessels. She loves the cold weather and feels right at home in it. She's loud, has some erm "questionable" language, and cannot LIVE without coffee, chocolate, cigarettes, and her energy drinks, but if you get in her good graces she is like a raindbow in harbor. She is my absolute favorite of all my personas. Northwest is a color I like to call "Bering sea gray", her hair is a dark blue, medium blue, light blue, and has one blond streak {in honor of the Hansens and their Norwegian heritage}. Her tail is the same, minus the blond. Her eyes are gray. Her symbol is the crest from the Northwestern vessel, and she has a King Crab on her front left leg, as well as a King Crab buddy named "Livlig" that hangs out with her constantly.


Meet Northwest.

Northwest Part two.












Since the guys come to Epcot, this adoptie is very fitting.























Probably my most BELOVED adoptie of Northwest ever. Here she is on the shore, eagerly and hopefully awaiting the safe return of the Northwestern and her crew from their season. Made bu the talented Sirithfin, it actually made me cry seeing as the morning I received
it I also got word they had returned home safely from Opie season.












Northwest was brought to life by the super-talented Dalahast in return for a small favor I did for her.

And lastly, Northwest meeting her heroes. Sig and Edgar Hansen, and getting signed by them. Edgar signed her, wrote "My Little Greenhorn" on her, then drew a heart under his signature. Squeee!
























You can see the "My Little Greenhorn" bit up there.



"Hold the pony Edgar."















After the fact.

Jas: Thank you muchly! I had to make a Evil Queen persona. She is my hero!



Ok moving on. Edgar. Edgar after Edgar Hansen from Deadliest Catch, the Deck Boss on the fishing vessel Northwestern. He's the tall gorgeous one signing my pony in the above post.


Anywhoo, Edgar the pony is the toughest, bravest pony you could ever want to meet. He's the Deck Boss on the "Downeaster Alexa". He works his fingers to the bone, and that's an understatement. He's quite the prank player, like putting live crabs in the other Deckhands beds, or replacing the coffee with de-caf {that ticks everyone off}. He's brave to the point of being fool-hardy. He's also the engineer and fixes everything that breaks on the boat, and can be often found dangling precariously from some equipment without any failsafe. He's had the opportunity to be Captain but has thus far refused, he prefer to be on deck doing the dirty work. He loves his job, and is as tough as he talks. He lives for fishing and the water and quite often feels out of place on land. He has a crush on Northwest, but she doesn't know it, and he refuses to admit it. If only he knew she adored him back! Edgar is one of my favorites. He's an earth pony. Blond hair with a blue streak. Blue eyes. His symbol is a anchor, a crab and bubbles.


Edgar before his design was finalized.















In his wildest dreams where he marries Northwest.





















Awww!







How scmexy is this?






His symbol.

wow! I don't really know anything about Deadliest Catch, but you make me want to see it!
I *LOVE* your personas relating to it, and I especially love that you got the custom signed and have all those amazing pics with them.
It's such a cool thing to see, I'm vicariously happy for you lol!

Awww Beth THANK YOU! You should watch it, new season starts Tuesday the 14th 9 pm Eastern time. All of mine are based off the Northwestern, that's my boat and those are my boys. I met them three times and it is the ONLY time I have EVER had a fangirl moment, ever, even after meeting musicians and actors. They loved the custom pony.


On to my next.


Levende.


Levende means "Living" in Norwegian, and is also a Northwestern/Deadliest Catch pony. Levende is best friends with Northwest and is Deck Boss on her boat Tapperhet. Another water pony through and through despite being a flutter she can function with her wings wet. Plus due to being so slender she is very agile and can do alot of the tougher jobs on the boat. She cares about everyone, and works hard. She has devoted her life to fishing and loves the hard work. Levende is a stubborn girl. Once she has her mind made up nothing stops her. She knows about Northwets's crush on Edgar but hasn't told him....yet. She also once saved Edgar's life, pulling him from the frozen waters. She's very talkative, and is a constant ball of energy, bouncing around on deck from rail to rail. Despite her small frame she can haul pots and hook them with the best of them, and other than Edgar she is known as the best Deck Boss in the fleet. She's sweet, certainly noy shy, and curses like a sailor because well....she is. Levende is a flutter. Her hair is the color of stormy seas, whitish-gray, murky green, and silver. Her eyes are green. Her body is a deep ocean blue, but she has a silver gradient on her legs that fades as it goes up. Her main symbol is an Alaskan King Crab, and she has smaller king crabs on her gradient on her legs. On her cheek, since most flutters have a cheek symbol is a symbol of her job, the grappling hook used to haul in the pots. She wears different colored pearls and seashells in her extra long, wavy hair. Her wings are a bit different, patterened after Silvermist, the Disney Water Talent Fairy. Her labret is also pierced.


Levende.

Say hello to my newest persona!


Alaskan Storm is the Senior Deckhand on the Tapperhet. She of course is also a Deadliest Catch themed pony. She takes her work seriously, and gets giddy glee out of breaking in the new deckhands or "Greenhorns" as they're called on fishing vessels. She loves her job like the rest of the crew on her boat. She knows everything there is to know about the boat and runs a tight ship, often putting the crew through 40 hour grinds, but due to her hard work along with Levende and Northwest the Tapperhet always brings in the crab. She's loud, and can also be a prankster, and enjoys cooking for the crew when she gets a break, not that she gives herself many breaks. Some accuse her of working to hard but she shrugs it off. She is much more at ease on sea than on land, as a matter of fact she would rather fish all year than be back on land, and it often takes her weeks to get her land legs back. Alaskan Storm is a G1 style Pegasus. She is a cool glacier blue. Her hair is stormy gray, icy white, with a streak of blue with snowflakes in it. Her tail is the same. She had silvereyes and her legs have a gradient of Alaskan Storm clouds on them. Her symbol are the stars on the Alaskan Flag.

Gosh, you've gotten lots more pretty art for your pretty personas! I love that scaly one of Northwest!

You have such a pretty little crew of Northwest/Deadliest Catch ponies. I dunno which is my fave! Levende is beautiful, but Northwest is gorgeous in a simple way, and I just love Alaskan Storm. You're such a creative lil gal! *hugs* Such beauties you have ^.^

Aww thank you BB! My fleet groweth! The Kirin version of Northwest is so pretty. ~Blushes~ Nah I'm not that creative, it's thanks to the people who bring them to life for me really. I just get random ideas. I know it's hard to choose between them!




More adopties of my girls, and Edgar!

Next is a very, very, VERY special pony. Seriously. No joke. I cannot stress the word special enough. Dutch Harbor Angel was made after the last two episodes of Deadliest Catch. The Fishing Vessel Katmai sank with a crew of 11, only four were rescued and I took it pretty hard. Their experience of being in the Bering for 18 hours just gutted me. Two men were washed out of the life raft, one had un-zipped his survival suit so he could have better leverage to close the flap on the life raft to save his fellow crew, especially one guy who had punctured a hole in the foot of his survival suit, both of those men were lost. The experience was chilling and it made me think "The Bering Sea must be Full of Angels." Thusly, Dutch Harbor Angel came to life. She is dedicated to the lost members of the Katmai and every Fisherman the Bering has ever claimed. You are ALL my heroes.

Angel {as she is called for short} is a very special pony. She is the spirit of the Bering Sea, literally given flesh and breath. She is an angel so to speak, and her purpose is to protect those who have lost their lives on her waters, to soothe them and watch over them with a gentle, loving heart. It's a hard job, and when a life is lost, Angel sheds tears of sorrow and the Bering sea responds with snow, thusly the snow on the Bering sea is actually her tears. All of the ponies who work the Bering know this and bow their heads in silent tribute when there's a snow-storm. Angel also takes it upon herself to pass the last messages of the lost to their loved ones. Despite her ominous sounding job to see her is actually a good omen. She is a very powerful, mysterious pony but no pony has a more loving, kinder, gentler heart than she. She makes life for her charges as comfortable as possible, many of them have chosen to still fish even after passing so she allows them run of a "ghost ship" of sorts that patrols The Bering. Angel is a G1 Pegasus with white, feathered ange wings tipped in blue. Her hair is black, white, and icy glacier blue. Her tail is the same with a streak of deep, stormy blue added. Her eyes are sapphire. Her symbol is a tombstone taken from a picture of an actual tombstone in the Dutch Harbor graveyard, a dove, a wave, seagulls on her cheek {they carry her messages} and the initials "DH" on her front left leg.

And here's some more of my Fishing Fleet of ponies.

Siren is the Head Engineer on the Tapperhet. She has known Northwest and Alaskan Storm since they were kids and she shares with them a love of the water. She also has a love for tinkering with things and fixing them. You would be hard pressed to find a better Engineer. Much like the rest of her crew Siren is a bit of a tomboy. She manages to both look gorgeous and kick butt at a guys job at the same time. There isn't much she can't do from weld a leak in the hydraulic crane in 40 foot swells to fixing the radio. She's calm, and keeps a level head though she's just as much a prankster as the rest of her shipmates, and while more quiet than most she's still loud and boisterous. She loves fishing, it's her life and there isn't anything else she would want to do. Siren is a G1 style unicorn. She is a bright, sunny yellow. Her hair is several shades of green with a streak of caramel. Her eyes are purple and her symbol is a Siren's harp with a wave. She often has seashells of various colors in her hair.






















Her symbol







Next up is Crab Bait Kitty. Silly name but it stuck. "Kitty" as she's called for short is a Sea Pony but she works for Northwest on the Tapperhet. How can a sea pony work on a crab boat you ask? Simple. She is always doing one of two jobs. She is either in the water beside the boat helping to find pots, put them in the right places and help haul them or she is on the boat, in the holding tanks watching over the crab. Kitty is a hard worker and has Northwest's trust implicitly. It took some convincing to show that a Sea Pony could be part of the crew but once she swam ahead of the Tapperhet and found the crab she became a irreplacable asset. She knows the crab' migration patterns and can usually find them without fail. Being a sea pony she is also pretty good at predicting the weather and warning the crew. Kitty has a huge heart and is easy to get along with. She's quite the chatterbox and always has a smile on her face. Kitty is a pale, bluish purple with aqua on her fins as highlights. Her hair is a darker purple with an aqua streak. Her eyes are violet and she wears a silver crab on a chain around her neck a gift given to her by Northwest.

Next on the Tapperhet crew is Serendipity. She is a Deckhand and is also in charge of the pots so she can often be found climbing the stack to make sure the pots are tied down properly in bad weather and also to make sure the pots are in usable condition and if not she promptly mends them. Serendipity is as oud and crazy as her crewmates though she is a bit more girly than the others, she somehow always finds the time to look good. She is good friends with Levende and the two enjoy working together. She also takes over cooking duties when their usual cook is off duty. Serendipity makes even the hardest and longest grinds fun with her smile and sense of humor. Serendipity is a G1 Earth. She is a dark fuschia pin with a lighter pink gradient on her legs. Her mane and tail are Dark purple, light purple and a ight, icy blue. Her eyes are a deep pink and she is a Twinkle Eye. Her symbol is a compass rose, a anchor, and on her front left leg in the gradient an octopus.



Serendipity.

Next on the crew is Vanora whose name means "White Wave". She's the cook on the Tapperhet and is also a longtime Deckhand. Vanora is hyper to say the least and she tends to fly around like a hummingbird on a sugar high. She keeps everyone else's spirits up. She is always moving, always doing something. To say the least she doesn't sleep much, so in short she's perfect for fishing on a crab boat. She cooks amazing food, works on deck, and also is a scout, flying ahead to see where the ice pack is, to make sure they aren't fishing on dangerous grounds. She loves her crew and is incredibly loyal. Vanora is a G1 winger. Her body is a pale sea green. Her hair is Dark Purple, Paler blue-purpe and white. Her eyes are a sea-foam green and her symbol is a lighthouse with waves.

Vanora






The next crew member on the Tapperhet is Un-Alaska. She is a Mer-Pony and works alongside Kitty, working with the pots once they are off the boat or watching over the crab in the holding tanks. As a matter of fact she is friends with Kitty and that's how she came to be part of the crew. Un-Alaska works extremley hard to prove her worth and the crew has come to respect her and her opinon. She is a prankster like most of her crew and can often be found placing various items in other boats pots as pranks. Un-Alaska is a G1 type Mer Pony. She is a very pale glacier blue, her tail is a matching light green. Her hair is a pale blue-gray, pale teal, and a medium green. Her eyes are green, and she has a symbol on her tail of a Beluga Whale.
