I don't think capitalization matters - I just sent you a gift with your name all lower case. Does it look like you just got a new one? :)

Ahhh Magiversary. That time of year when crystalwings romp, gifts are exchanged, and we go through our stashes of spare livers with excessive alcohol consumption.

Cheers, all.

Gallium Crystalwing
Image
This egg constantly changes shape when held.

Artificers have always been fascinated by the famed crystalwings, something that fueled their desire to create one of their own. One such crystalwing was made out of enchanted gallium, an element that proved to be susceptible to magic. Silver in color and very malleable, this metal is perfect for the ever-changing crystalwings as it gives them the ability to rearrange on their bodies some of the crystal shards they consume. Influenced by room temperature, the colder it gets they become less active to the point of being immobile. If the temperature rises, their bodies melt and start to change shape and they become more and more energetic. Just like the other crystalwings, the gallium ones love to collect shiny objects; sometimes to decorate their homes or to simply chew on them.

Porcelain Crystalwing
Image
This porcelain egg is very fragile.

Porcelain crystalwings are very popular among magis during celebrations. They are often dubbed as the merry-go-round crystalwings because of their appearance and sweet nature. These creatures were created by the artificers with the intention of carrying people around on festivities and they act accordingly. They will let anyone climb on them and float around, sometimes in circles, especially if there is music played. Made of hard porcelain, these crystalwings have the ability to float, moving up and down as they walk forward. They never touch the ground, not even when resting. Just like statues, the porcelain crystalwings are immobile and if it weren't for their ability to float they could easily be mistaken as beautifully crafted decorations. Not having the need to feed or the desire to collect shiny stones, the porcelain crystalwings are the happiest when they can fulfill their purpose. However, they do tend to move to places that have gleaming objects when not carrying people around. One could swear these statuesque-like creatures have a content expression on their faces when it happens.

Marinevra Crystalwing
Image
Is this an egg or just a pile of junk someone left lying around?

Technically marinevra crystalwings are not alive, but that doesn't mean they don't have personality. They seem to enjoy pretending to be broken, collapsing in awkward heaps until someone comes to check on them, at which point they leap up in joy. Some magi even claim that the rattle when they do this sounds distinctly like a giggle. Marinevra are delicate enough that magi should be careful not to get too rough with them, but fortunately a gift of wood or string is enough for the marinevra both to forgive and to repair itself.

Plushie Crystalwing
Image
Fluffy bits of stuffing are escaping from the seams of this plushie egg.

One of the more placid creatures that the artificers have invented, plushie crystalwings are soft, easygoing companions that require little care and love nothing more than being cuddled. They closely resemble the creatures they are modeled after, but in place of hard scales have soft, fuzzy cloth, and they do not shed the gems sewn onto their bodies. While they are content to sit still most of the time, just like a non-magical toy, sometimes the fancy strikes them to run around or even fly, though they never go far from their magi companion. In fact, they most often move in order to crawl or fly onto their companion’s shoulders or lap to demand snuggles.

Ferrofluid Crystalwing
Image
This "egg" is a glass bottle half filled with oddly viscous liquid.

Image(f hatch)
After days of absorbing everything made of iron within a foot of it until the fluid within threatens to overflow, ferrofluid crystalwing eggs hatch. That is to say, the lid slowly expands into a lovely gem, a strange claw arm grows out to clasp the gem, and the remainder of the bottle folds open like a flower blooming, the liquid pointing in regular spikes towards the gem like leaves toward sunlight. All this happens in a few minutes and is a fascinating sight to behold. The gem strongly resembles a piece of amber that has been rubbed, attracting whatever small floating bits are nearby and causing creatures' fur to stand on end near it.

Created by the artificers as proof they can make creatures out of any medium, even liquid, ferrofluid crystalwings are beautiful but slightly unsettling. Their bodies are almost always in motion, one moment covered completely in spikes, one moment almost fully smooth, and they create and absorb limbs constantly. The gems on their bodies, their one solid, unchanging component, attract iron, and they break down and absorb any pieces they catch into their liquid bodies. Despite this constant intake of material, they don't ever grow larger than a small dog. This is because they usually prefer to walk (or ooze) rather than fly, and always leave behind an oily, gritty liquid residue wherever they touch something.
