-- UNRELATED RANDOM RAMBLINGS --

All of your rambling foxy needs. A whole profile text of PURE. RAMBLING. GOODNESS.
--
09/09/18: I sincerely want to know how and why nine year old me came up with this username. How did I even know what sparklefoxes were back then, anyway?
--
14/08/18: Well, that was some strange downtime. I went on the site via a creature link in my history and got a double "Oops, something went wrong" error. I just thought 'oh, it's just this computer being an idiot again', so I just used a Site Blog link instead. The page didn't fully load - the text was smaller (so was the site, to be honest) and a different font, and the background was just the generic gray one. Every other page loaded like this until everything gave me the double error thing, then EC eventually refused to load. I was sitting here laughing the entire time.

That was a very fun experience.

--
23/07/18: I like bidding on auctions for a joke just to see how long it takes for me to be outbid. This is also why you don't let me on the internet late at night.
--
20/07/18: Came back after a couple of hours to 33 notifications. 32 of them were from bids on an auction. Nice.
--
17/06/18: Thanks to me randomly clicking on YT videos, I've reminded myself of just how good the soundtrack to Apollo Justice is.

Liking AJ? Well, there's another slightly unpopular opinion I have. That seems to be a common thing with me.

--
05/06/18: The thought of people actually clicking on that link in my profile in order to read these is rather embarrassing, as these - even the one right below this - are usually pretty darn embarrassing to read after writing them.

Now, onto my original little thought. Someone in my subs on YT has been streaming pretty much every MGS game on their hardest difficulties, and I've noticed how much I enjoyed Rising and MGS2 over anything else. Hm, I wonder why...

Could it be perhaps... the main character of them? No, can't be... Nah, I'm joking. It's kinda one of the reasons. You see, MGS2 is very nostalgic to me - although I've never played it myself, I always watched my older sister play it on her PS2 back when I was really young. She also did the same with the first and third one, but I guess younger me took a bigger liking to the second one than them since my memories of that are much more vivid. It's given me a soft spot for our blond little hero, which can actually be considered a quite unpopular opinion depending on who you talk to.

Little did I know, I had one of the most unpopular opinions about a character in (exaggerated for humour's sake) the history of any game up until that point in time. AM I COOL YET? Yes, younger me thought he was really cool, probably because I understood less than half of what was actually going on. You can go ahead and slap me now.

--
26/04/18: Profiles which have the username / a nickname written out in giant blocks look pretty ugly, in my opinion. I'm mentioning this because they seem popular right now, which means it's quite annoying to click on a profile only to see a massive eyesore in the profile text. Profiles which have this, but it's in bright colours, look even worse.

"but if we click on ur profile all we see is???? a massive????? eyesore??????? with ur uft meSsaGE???????? liK E?????????? hhhhhhHHHHhhHHH"

Yeah, I kinda need that. It looks ugly and I hate it too. ...Then again, no one ever seems to freaking read it. I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING "LOL IS UR STUFF UFT????" SINCE TRADING BECAME A THING, PLEASE CUT ME SOME SLACK HERE. I've had it up to here with people that can't read before asking.
--
24/04/18: Being sniped in an auction doesn't annoy me because all of my bids are for a joke and to see who wins it. Yes, even when I'm (badly) sniping myself. It's surprising to me if I win an auction, actually.
--
18/04/18: Sometimes I like to search my username on the forums and go right back to the last page for nostalgia and cringeworthy memories. Did you know I was recognised for being an older user and mistakenly classified as a dying cove on more than one occasion?
--
14/04/18: I put that rambling there yesterday, and suddenly over the past day I got quite a few friend requests from usernames I actually recognise. Coincidence, or...?

Well, anyway, it wasn't one of those "im sooo depressed no one likes me or notices me :^(((((" things, it was just an observation based on my activity here outside of just going to the cave and feeding my cove. Since I'm never really active in the forums (outside of the obvious things) and other places, no one would really notice. This is assuming no one checks the "last seen" time / I put it on hidden, amongst a couple of other assumptions.
--
13/04/18: If I quit this site, no one would notice. Just a random thought I had in my head.
--
20/03/18: Viewing EC at 80% zoom is the best way to use EC because EVERYTHING ISN'T SO BIG.

http://prntscr.com/ityhx8 - 100% Zoom
http://prntscr.com/ityicj - 80% Zoom

(Also, look how poor I am. I don't spend much time here feeding coves or anything like that, I'm sorry.)
--
11/03/18: I scrolled through some old blog posts and gave myself nostalgia. The old V2 announcement posts seemed to give me the most nostalgia for some reason. ...I also cringed pretty hard at my old comments. Those were fun times back then.

Also, obligatory MGR lyrics because I'm really good at getting this soundtrack stuck in my head.

*ahem*

Memories broken, the truth goes unspoken, I've even forgotten my naaaaaame! I don't know the season, or what is the reason I'm standing here holding my blaaaaade! A desolate place! (Place!)
Without any trace! (Trace!) It's only the cold wind I feeeel.

--
15/02/18: THE FIRE OF GREED WILL BUUUURN THE WEEEAAAAK, SO WE'LL MAKE FREEDOM OOOBSOLEEEETE.

...This song has been stuck in my head for too long.
--
10/02/18: here's the shrug:
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

here's the shrug in italics:
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
--
02/02/18: tfw someone copies and pastes your welcome message but makes it blue to be different but you care so little that you're not going to make a big deal over it (shrug here)

At least change the wording, I guess. But I'm not going to murder you over it.
--
27/12/17: I don't know about you, but the swan in this blog post looks a little similar to my creature suggestion for the bird-themed month which features rushed art and reasons why you don't trust me to come up with ideas late at night. A huge stretch, considering the fact that one's a swan and the other is a heron, but I just found it weird on how similar they look.

Of course, I KNOW that it's not my suggestion because it's a part of CDWC and I'm not going to make a huge storm over this because I can tell that it's purely coincidental, but I just wanted to let that thought out here. The thought of my bad ideas actually being used freaked me out to death for a second.
--
17/12/17: I totally didn't forget about this and instead just continue my ramblings on Discord. Nope, not at all.
--
30/09/17: http://prntscr.com/grk75k - Whoops.
--
19/08/17: Being new doesn't mean you can't read a profile. I can save a spare Twobot, but I've got quite a bit of things I still need to dump into the Auctions.
--
12/08/17: Shoutout to http://prntscr.com/g7r53x for commenting then immediately deleting it. Genuinely curious on what you commented.
--
29/07/17: Why do I always type in italics? Well, two reasons.

- I like the way italic text looks (quite obvious).

- When the new eCode for styled text first came out, I used italic text in the comments of the blog post announcing it to test it out. I liked the way it looked, so I stuck with it. I could add colours, but it would seem weird now to suddenly add colours to everything after a few years of just plain italic text.
--
28/07/17: Oh, so we can change usernames now. To be honest with you, despite hating this username, I've also grown rather... attached to it. Even if I had the CC, I don't really know if I could even bring myself to change it. This name has been with me for a little too long. It will always bring back nostalgia and memories... even of that awful character I made for it when I was around nine / ten. It was an anthro fox with the usual red fox colours, but her fur was shiny. It's not like the one I made when I was thirteen and obsessed with Okami is any better. Nine year old me honestly didn't even know what a "sparklefox" was (spoiler alert: it's a fox with as many accessories and colours thrown onto it as possible). I don't even know where she got this from.
--
11/07/17: The realisation of this account's age just smacked me in the face. Almost eight years of my life have been spent here. I joined this place when I was nine years old. I will turn seventeen in three days. Where did the time go...?
--
08/07/17: tfw every friend you've had on here has either forgotten about your existence or has quit
--
29/06/7: Yes, internet. The moment I'm trying to snipe an auction is the PERFECT time for you to suddenly take one of your 'im gonna go sooo slow now skrew u!!!' fits! Thank you so much!

And finally loading the page RIGHT AFTER the timer runs out is a great way to rub salt on the wound. Thanks.
--
28/06/17: Sometimes I feel bad for being an 'oldie' here. Apparently, this automatically means that I only care about creature rarities, wouldn't hesitate on scamming a newer user, completely despise the idea of re-releasing creatures because muh pixelzz will get sooo common, and am addicted to trading... Well, the words of others butchered summarised into my own. Why did I need to find this place in '09?
--
25/06/17: WHY ARE PEOPLE SENDING ME ITEMS, AAAAH.
--
09/06/17: "QUACK HONK! HOOONK. QUA-QUACK HONK! HOOONK."
- when u rappin' bad
--
13/05/17: https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20100103220454/http://eggcave.com/profile/sparklefox - Enjoy. Just keep clicking the forward arrow at the top.

A whole journey through both the site itself and my maturity. I've grown up along with this site, and it's nice to see how far it's gotten since nine year old me found it one day. Now I'm almost seventeen and doing exams. Before that, I was a child enjoying myself on a fun site in my free time, without a care in the world. That dark green layout is nostalgic. Almost eight years... close to ten years spent on this site.

(Yes, one of the status updates is a Shadow the Hedgehog quote. Someone in my YouTube subscriptions was playing it at the time and I was loving the playthrough. And the stuff relating to "CHAIR" and the other quotes were references to one of Jethrotex's streams. The "CHAIR" quote was because whenever he left the camera, all we could see was his chair. The chat was then spammed with "CHAIR", "THE ALMIGHTY CHAIR", "JETH'S CHAIR", etc.)
--
08/05/17: I really hate that 'story' on my profile. It's awful. But I also can't be bothered editing it to make it sound decent, or less edgy. Seriously, make yourself a necromancer now? Sparky, you're awful.
--
24/04/17: First V3 rambling! ...Since we're on V3, maybe I'll get around to rewording that welcome message. And some other things.

And, uhh... EC, Rose hasn't used either of those potions. She was just a Star from the Cave.
--
03/04/17: That would be "04/03/17" for those using the MM/DD/YY format - which would translate to "4th March" if read incorrectly as the DD/MM/YY format. This would also be "17/04/03" for those using the YY/MM/DD format.

...Hey, what do you know. There's a rambling posted on 4th March. What an amazing coincidence.
--
31/03/17: "V2 LOOKS AMAZING OMGGGG CANT WAIT IT HAS EVERYTHING LOOK FORUMS AAAAA ITS SOO MUCH BETTER THAN V1!!! HYPE"
- everyone before v2

"boooo v3 sux i dun liek change pls keep it in this old inferior state plzzzz ec for my benefit :'cccccc boo-hoo"
- everyone before v3
--
25/03/17: I'm slowly becoming a grump everywhere. Your usual Sparky may gradually become obsolete to make way for Grumpyfox.
--
16/03/17: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=le81BZrvknQ - Have fun.
--
12/03/17: I need a break from a lot of places and a lot of people.
--
11/03/17: All of those people who think they've been on a site for a really long time because they've been on it for a month / almost a year / a year, how they amuse me.
--
08/03/17: My generic welcoming message was once just "Welcome to Egg Cave! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me." quite a long time ago. It's nice to see just how much has been added to it, while still retaining this exact line.

I may be reconstructing it once V3 is publicly released to update any sort of bad wording, and to include much more. I'll still try to keep this line, though. It'll be sad to see it go, after lasting so long. Also, long live copy-and-paste.
--
07/03/17: I'm thinking of making various EC-related 'comics' featuring the ninetails character who represents this account. AND THEY SHALL BE STUPID. ...They'll also be posted here, to minimise potential bleeding eyes due to their awfulness. C'mon, it's me doing them. Don't give me that look.
--
06/03/17: I've taken a hating to phrases such as "lmao", "same" and replying to images with "me". Yes, there's a reason behind it - and it's all due to the same person.

I should also maybe join or start another RP soon. "That Random Animal RP II", anyone?
--
04/03/17: I hate emoticons in general, and only ever use them when joking around. However, I especially hate XD, X3, ;u;, ;v;, and a few other ones. They do have reasons behind them, and some just make you look like a child. ...Sorry, my opinions on things are usually things people never want to hear because it, uhm... 'hurts their feelings'. It's emoticons, silly! Not a personal attack!
--
25/07/17: I put no effort into this - http://oi63.tinypic.com/214wk5w.jpg .
--
23/07/17: Date format is DD/MM/YY. No, I don't live on a planet where there's a 23rd month.
Or maybe I do?
--
22/02/17: If you searched "sparklefox" into Google in the past and scrolled deep enough, you found my EC profile. Now you just get a link to the W&I forum. How nice of you, Google.

About Rosse Eggs

What a pretty red color! It looks almost like a rose.

About the Rosse Creature

Rosse (pronounced roh-SAY) are the most advanced species of plant on Ark. Somehow Rosse roses (a species of rose that is unique to southern Ark) have evolved into a type of very complex creature that functions much like an animal but yet is entirely composed of plant cells. Rosses, for this reason, do not need to be fed, for they convert energy from the sun to chemical energy via photosynthesis. So, don't be surprised if your Rosse is low-energy after many consecutive, cloudy days.
