Jayamree...It looks like we all picked up on the same theme.  There is a new theme being discussed for a Matryoshka/Babushka Russian nesting doll.  I'm sure you'll just love that one. 

I'm not up on the characters from the books you ladies are discussing, but I just love that white horse with all the lace flowing from it...the face on that Hawkbrother dotee is great....

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.
Get it together!

I'm not familiar with that book either, but the horse dotee is lovely.

I'm so glad you love her, PirateColey! I was proud of her, I think I managed to grasp the sort of ethereal nature of Companions! I didn't name her so that you can name her whatever you like, because she's your Companion~

I love Stormwind, and I think I've decided she's a girl - dunno why! Though I've noticed Tayledras ladies tend to have more butch names then the men, or is that just me? XD P.S, the Firesong books are waiting to be read... but first I have to finish Robert Jordan's 'The Great Hunt'. I will make it through the Wheel of Time series, I WILL! Speaking of, there should totally be a Wheel of Time swap. Yeeeees. Well, and a Valdemar swap, but I totally plan to organize that when I have time.

You should read the series everyone, it's so great!

Totally loving and jealous of the Companion and Hawkbrother dotees!  HUGE fan of Mercedes Lackey.

Beautiful dolls!

I received from Laela - it's going to take a while for me to upload and post photos. (No I haven't upgraded to cable internet yet; yes, I plan to join the 21st century soon!).

Prepare for awesomeness....

Okay, I have three photos:

The first is the outside of the dotee -

Can you guess what it is? I guessed wrong....

When you open the book, a monster/ghoul/being yells at you -

Now do you Harry Potter-ophiles know?

A close-up of the face -

Laela said it was a bit obscure - it's a book from the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts Library. The book yells/roars/scolds you if you are underage.
It's so unusual that I can't help but love it. Thanks so much!!

fatewineroses - You too?! Wow, I really do need to organize that Valdemar/ML swap! (pssst, if you're interested I write fanfiction - that actually has the real characters and no author avatars/Mary Sues... /end plug)

Smmart - I'm glad you like it! I was worried I might have gone too 'outside the box'. *headdesk*

Smmarrt - Oh yeah! I'm such a dork that as soon as I saw the opened book I knew exactly what it was! Awesome!!!

Laela - Oh yeah. I've been a fan of Valdemar since I was about 13...we won't talk about exactly how long that is except to say that...it's a freakin' long time! lol  I actually did an ATC that was a Companion for Goat Goddess for a swap when I found out she's a Valdemar fan as well. I wouldn't be surprised to find a bunch more out there as well.

All the dotees I made have been received.
Here's a picture of the 3 of them together just before I sent them out.

The star went to craftyhippie.
The cat went to mamarose22.
The Russian Doll went to jayamaree.
