Meanwhile in Azeroth

So there's this guy.  He goes by Frostheim and he's basically the Patron Saint of Hunters Everywhere on WoW.  He writes for WoW Insider and runs a massive hunter community site  He does amazing theorycrafting work and his posts are the ones I go to when I need help with aspects of the game.  He enjoys writing songs to glorify the hunter class, and recently ran a kickstarter so he could hire someone to help do an entire album of hunter songs.  They more than met their goal, and one of the songs promised was a hunter love song.  Okay, I admit:  I was a little disappointed when he chose the platonic love between a hunter and their pet.  But the song is really well done and best of all:  at the last minute, for the video, he decided to feature the vast hunter community and their favorite pets.  I am fortunate to follow Frostheim on twitter, and saw him put up the ad for hunter screenshots.  Although I would have loved to have taken the time to make a really artistic screenshot with a neat coordinating outfit, I found a good picture of Zarabethe in a decent transmog outfit and her blue dragonhawk, Cerulean (along with the matching companion pet).  Cerulean is special to me, because I really wanted a blue dragonhawk to match the blue dragonhawk mount I just got for getting 100 mounts.  It was a lot of work, and I knew I would show off my mount more if I had a coordinating pet.  The only place to tame a blue dragonhawk is in the Sunwell, a Burning Crusade era raid.  Just because it is a BC raid however, did not mean it was easy:  we literally had to go in, Elforen (husband) would pull everything and keep them off of me and pray we both lived long enough for me to tame one.  It took a couple tries.  But we got it, and I proudly flaunted my dragonhawk trio all over (until some other shiny pet caught my eye....ahem).  Anyway, I was excited to see Zara and Cerulean in the video for the song!  I couldn't remember if the names had been turned off or not, and I knew he wouldn't use it if the names were on, so it was a little iffy, but I squealed out loud when I saw them on it :).  Without further ado, the Hunter Love Song by Frostheim and Balthazar.

(Zara and Cerulean are at about :56)
