These are some egg designs I made for a character design/adoption auction over at FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/10477553/
Wanted to share the designs and the stories I made up for them:
Egg #1 Story: This egg was found by a young girl in Ancient Greece whose mother always told her to stop climbing the olive trees - but what young girl on a hunt for adventure amongst the birds truly listens to her mother? On one of these forbidden ventures, she found a particularly large olive tree and climbed all the way to it’s peak when she seen something odd at it’s upper branches. A nest made of not straw and twigs, but of barley, silk (from so far away!), and strange wefts of what felt like clouds in her mind. Scooping up the single egg, she hurried away to see what a man in the bazaar would make of it!
Egg #2 Story: This egg was happened upon by a young man heading home from the rice fields one evening during the Han Dynasty in a riverbed. Amongst the reeds and pebbles, this beautiful egg glowed with colours of jade and fleck of gold. Astounded by his finding, and finding the waters strangely warm around it, he took it for something valuable, perhaps a dragons egg, or some other lesser known creature, and quickly took to the market to see what it would fetch!
Egg #3 Story: Before the Modern period in the land of Alba, a fisherman just come back from a long journey came upon this egg. It had been growing dark on his way back from harbour to home, and passing by a cemetery housing both dead warriors and their wives, something caught his eye. The egg had a shine and a purposeful design to it, laying beside an equally well-carved tomb, as if crafted by the spirits, and though spooked by its location - being a suspicious man - he lifted it and brought it to his family to see what would hatch…
