If Spike's castle scheming was any more masterful

If Spike's castle scheming was any more masterful

Not only did Spike exploit a sibling rivalry in a sibling rivalry, but he created it in the first place. Spike asked Thorax to impersonate Celestia while she was on important business and instructed him to deliberately brush off all of Luna's security advice to make her susceptible to allying with him for the betrayal. Spike also hired Grogar to abduct all castle guards and replaced them with changelings so that they would be unrealistically easy to distract. Shining Armor was also a c

The Mild and the Mirror

The Mild and the Mirror

My heart is beating between these two. (And by beating I mean pronking.) Punkie Pie got to work again. This could also read "WIRD". (Pinkie Pie is not normal. ... Well, duh. Pastel-colored cartoon pony. ... And she is notorious for turning things upside-down. And I love doing that, too.) I love the depth of this pun so much. This is beauty. This is magic. This is life.   Fluttervector kindly by https://www.deviantart.com/redpandapony/art/Fluttershy-Being-Fluttershy-297769

An MLP unegging

Saw this at a supermarket and couldn't resist. I had checked two videos about these and they both indicated these contain various figurines. But that must have been different, some special case, because this one only had an iron-on patch. It was the same chocolate as in the review videos, too. Half brown milk with stars, half white. Both tasted mild, creamy, not overly sweet, and unspectacular. I had a feeling it was too good to be true. (This day was rich in disappointments. Also go

Turtle, tortoise, terrapin - no one right way

Turtle, tortoise, terrapin - no one right way

Lately I was reminded of this old episode that conveys in a gentle, subtle, humorous way how this debate about whether it's a turtle or a tortoise is somewhat futile since different countries do it differently, and the various other, supposedly more scientific terms are based on the same meanings, too, so any name you could be using for refering to the whole range of those animals that share the same traits are also based on the common terms for supposedly specific types. Sounds confusing? Exact

I invite you to follow me on Twitch! :-)

After a long wait I finally got VDSL and a proper render PC and settled on playing in 1080 when streaming so that I can read chat without having to buy a separate display. If you sign up and follow me on Twitch, you can get notified when I'm playing something live and chat about it. My style is typically relaxed and thoughtful, experimental-unconventional-playful and philosophical-critical-informative.

Fluttershy stage fright - really?

Saw the new EqG short, Fluttershy musical...     She has shown she's quite capable of singing in front of a crowd. She just needs a villain to defeat, hah. And friendship magic helps, too, at least from my viewpoint, but yeah, some settings have enough of that certain magic, others maybe not. I can empathize with her great potential that only comes out when the stars are aligned, so to speak. Soo, being a Pinkie brain, I would have told her that there's no reason to
