So here's an idea I had some time back, and it's time to make a topic over it.

Virmir tends to become other things. A lot. But a good number of these forms tend to be reused quite frequently. Today I suggest everyone decide some new or uncommon forms to force Virmir into.

26 of them!

Here's how this will work: everyone posts forms they want to see Virmir become, one form starting with each letter of the alphabet (and yes, this will make "x" and "q" rather boring). At some date yet to be determined, we will take all the suggestions and with luck Vir will draw himself as or turning into the form suggested the most for each letter.

For this run pick animals that actually exist, so no mythical creatures, objects, Pokemon, or anything fictional. Any real animal is allowed, but I recommend voting on forms that Virmir has rarely or never taken. No foxes, though, as we've already seen plenty of these. Also use the animal's common name (usually English, but not universally), not their Latin ones.

If you can't decide on a form for a specific letter you can simply choose to pass on it. http://a-z-animals.com/animals/ has some animals listed by letter if you need suggestions, but it's a very incomplete list.

My votes:
Anteater
Bear
Crocodile
Dodo
Elephant
Flying Squirrel
Goat
Human (because I'm evil)
Iguana
Jellyfish
Koala
Lion
Mouse
Newt
Opossum
Platypus
Quokka
Rabbit
Skunk
Tasmanian Devil
Urchin
Vulture
Wombat
X [pass]
Yak (seems to be the only option)
Zebra

It's a real animal, so it's allowed.

I just want to say that X-Ray Tetra appears to be our only choice. And not just because of that link.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-ray_Tetra

A completely different link lists many animals that potentially have X in their name, but many of them are a super order or genus. Almost none are an individual animal aside from the X-Ray Tetra. It's almost like someone in zooalogy just REALLY doesn't like the letter X.

Last year, just one week after the Injury occurred, CF people conspired an alphabetical list of things to turn me into.  I've been wanting to draw some of these the whole time since then.  It seems like a good list of prompts to pull from while working on sketches.
