Yess sirree! * does salute* protecting DA from Art Thieves since.. well... since I first started coming here lol.. I'm like... The Shadow... why?.. because "ONLY THE SHADOW KNOWS!" Hahahaa.. but anyway.. yeh.. tis good helping others while helping ones self too no?.. ^_~ I only hope Shiva keeps his eyes close on that one ^_~
thank you. yes well technically they were based on deer, lions and girafes, the later more apparent (in their language anyhow) today. I dunno they aren't unicorns that's fer damn sure. they're ethereal areali spirits.
um.. not o mater what anyone says.. tchnically if translation doesn't fail me today, it isn't unicorn and they acually look notihn like them since, kiin/kilin/qirin have two horns (mindmyou giraffes have two visible and a nodoule stickin from thier forehead, which on eatern draongs the atribute to where they store their ability to fily along with all of their wisdom. though unfortunately yes, there are only ethereal air beings/spirits)
but many people have attached the term of eastern unicorn to them. They aren't supposed to be like that but that's what the western hemisphere sees when they look at them I guess.
Also, I checked out a book from the highschool library...I don't remember the author right now...and the book's a collection of medieval japanese tales?
It's called, nothing but this; Japanese Tales. made me laugh...some of the stories are pretty funny.
Anyhow, I dunno if you've read it yet but it's very nice if you're into short story collections like I am.
thanks a bunch you know they wren't unicorns like peoples say. They're really dragon like areal beings kinda like spirits actually, only the turn into physical manifestations of air! Also tried adding in a bit of girrafee since that what the japanese see the kirin as now these days.. but i think the real kirins are still hidin somewheres in this great earth! ^.^
well in jappan and china, girafes are what they now call kirins, prolly because of the long neck and horns (it actually has three not two two a prominent and one is actually a little knob coming from the forehead.. that's why i tried to mix in the giraffe as well lol
lol very inspired though mostly from dreams, my premonitions (alot have come true actualyl.. that'sd pretty scary..) and my past life dreams.. note to all you's if i didn't upload my story charry Nole yet ( btw my story is basde upon my past life experiences), he'll be commin soon ^.^
truth be told kirins are basically dragons just with one horn, i have no clue in hell why people call them unicorns cause the aren't the are areal beings anothing more notihng less, typically they look alot more like dragons then unicorans
truth be told kirins are a type of unicorn. (Uni meaning one and corn meaning horn)They just don't resemble the horse unicorn in Europian culture. They more resemble the dragon yes but they are still a unicorn. Its't just that they have few resemblinces to the stereotypical white unicorn.
