Ya know, i half expected her to whip out some bada** half-dragon ninja thing or something that would be unbelieveably awesome and awe the enemy… Not the first time in the last two days an artist has hit me in the face with a curveball.

It’s your baby. It don’t matter whether or not it’s up to the standards of others

Oh, Danni can definitely follow through in a fight. It’s the people watching and voting that are harder to win over…
