Thanks! I also have plans for a micro version of your ring lift (I call it, micro ring lift ;P ;-P)
(Two different smilleys can't be 'racist' :P :-P)
Heard about your wing accident :P :-P

Sorunome (author)Leigo Andre2013-08-02

Also, my wing already healed :3

And, i only copied the ring lift off of Shadowmans in Cataclysm, and i am like 99.9999999999% sure i gave him credits :)

Wing accident?

I was flying around and kinda crashed..........

Leigo Andre (author)Sorunome2013-08-03

Sorunome (author)Leigo Andre2013-08-04

Leigo Andre (author)Sorunome2013-08-05

Cant say thay. Eddie (my stepdad) is a pilot. And I fly the plane sometimes.

Sorunome (author)Leigo Andre2013-08-07

Leigo Andre (author)Sorunome2013-08-07

He owns the airplane, so technicaly its my own wing...

Sorunome (author)Leigo Andre2013-08-07

Do they grow out of your body? nope.

Leigo Andre (author)Sorunome2013-08-07

Sorunome (author)Leigo Andre2013-08-08

Because you alternate between caps and lowercase.

What wing?! I don't understand... '--

I'm a pony. To be exact: I'm a pegasus.

Oh now I understand :D Hope that you didn't crash too hard? ;)
