I implied in my previous post that continuing to read it would reward you with bear pics. Somehow, by the time I reached the end, I’d forgotten to do anything about that. I was looking through screenshots today, though, and figured I ought to post part of my collection.
BEWARE! BEYOND THIS POINT, THERE BE BEARS! (“”\ ( -.- ) /”“)
I’m the gnome with the Dun Morogh cub. I have no idea who the druid and hunter were. They were just sitting there when I arrived.
This is from our “Go see Azeroth one last time before it changes!” tour the night before Cataclysm. We went to find Mankrik’s wife one last time. My hunter’s bear was always a camera hog.
I need RFC for an achievement. I was level 80, it was the end of Wrath, and it took a level 80 paladin and an ICC geared warrior to get me in there. Either that, or this is from the time we escorted Anachronos to Orgrimmar so he could use the auction house. I don’t remember which.
I was trying to get some really good shots of Aurius before Cataclsym, but the bear was yelling at me to hurry up!
The gates of Grim Batol. I loved going to hang out up there. If I had someone along with me, we took the motorcycle so I could “drive”. I knew exactly where every dragonkin would be and could easily weave in and out of them. The truth is, though, even with a motorcycle I often used one of my bear mounts when I was out on my own.
This is the last time I saw King Magni not in his Earthsiege Diamond form.
When everyone else forgot we were supposed to go to Ulduar for my birthday, my husband took me anyway. Note the hunter (me) is the female dwarf. That bear really liked husband’s paladin.
I feel like we’ve been here before…
I’m pretty sure the Deed to Uldum is one of those I picked up in Scholomance. Right?
@windandstardust and @ZealotPenguin got me a new Dun Morogh bear, since my others were attached to characters on a different server. This bear went everywhere with me! The first thing I did when I zoned in somewhere and he didn’t automatically show up was summon him. Even once I got the Hyjal bear cub, it was my Dun Morogh cub who stayed by my side.
Speaking of Hyjal bears… I don’t know if you know this, but baby bears are precious and soft! <3 This is from a post I wrote on Heavy Wool Bandage. It’s simple, but one of the most emotional posts I’ve ever written if you could have seen me working on it, and still one of my favorites. I’m glad I wrote it.
I posted this one before when I told the tale of how @Asherrylie and some other awesome folks helped me get my baby raptor back. Even though we never finished that dungeon, that night meant a lot to me and I still kind of (happily) tear up over it.
I think I’m running out of good bear pics here. I’ve got some beautiful art others have done for me, but that’s it for screenshots. Unless you want bear butts, and I think Big Bear Butt already has the market cornered there.
