  1. Loads and loads of inspiration, but I can't find my motivation. D: Where did I leave it?

      You're already helping a ton. ;) Oh? Any interesting ideas? Share if you complete something? :ticking:

      Also, here's a hint on my next drawings. It's a bit subtle, but if you know it you know it.

      Good luck, my friend! :) I hope the motivation comes back soon – having the inspiration is a good start, at least! :kindness:

  2. That moment when you're watching a murder mystery show and you see a famous actor you recognize located somewhere discreetly in the background, so you already know in the episode's opening scene who the killer is. ^_^

      Scooby-Doo only did that once as far as I know. :ooh:

  3. Such tired. Sleepy pone is sleepy. Gonna go snuggle a blanket and smother a pillow. Goodnight everypony! Have a wonderful night and the best of dreams. post-25189-0-33094200-1412626540.png

      Yeah, I'm kinda off and on on the Forums. 

  7. Nyx brought you something. :3

      I hadn't read many fanfics either until this last year or so. Past Sins and Nyx were both made by Pen Stroke. It's one of the really early fanfics. I think it was originally made between seasons 1 and 2, so around 2011-ish. It was updated after season 2, around 2012 I think, and that's the state it stayed in.

      From what I've seen not a lot of people share my opinion on this, but Past Sins is easily the best fanfic I've ever read and it's way up there in the best books I've ever read in general.

    3. Splashee


      That sounds very interesting. Do you have a link to Past Sins? Also how are the art of Nyx connected to the fanfics? Isn't the fanfics just text? Did someone draw the characters beforehand, or after the fanfic was created?

    4. Totally Lyra

      Apparently Past Sins was really popular for a while, probably still is kinda popular, I just never gave it a try until about 8 months ago. But anyway, there's a good bit of fan art of Nyx out there that fans of the story have made. Not a ton, not nearly as much as I'd like, but there's a decent amount. As for that picture up there with Nyx offering you a balloon, I drew that one myself a while back. :D

      Oh, and a link to the fanfic. Before clicking it I should warn you, the cover picture for this story on fimfiction is very spoiler-heavy. Don't look too close if you think you might ever read it. :P

      I have a physical copy of the book, and it's legitimately a full length book. I don't have it with me right now, but I think it's a good 500 pages plus some.

  8. These are just so good! :pinkie:



    Be warned. This one contains a case of the feels. :(

      I don't mean literally. I mean saying stupid/embarrassing things that I immediately wish I could take back.

      Oh, rightttt... didn’t know that expression 

  13. I think it's well past time I get some sleep. Goodnight everypony! I hope you all had as awesome of a weekend as I did, or perhaps even more awesome! :D Sleep well and have wonderful dreams. :)

  15. This guy's the best! ^_^

    He's streaming again and, in addition to his dancing Lyra (and other ponies) on the screen, he has videos tucked into the corner. Right now he's got Bob Ross video! :yay:

    That is all. :3

      Happy Lyra Day!!! :arethosehands::arethosehands::arethosehands:

  18. Huzzah, it's the weekend! :pinkie: I hope you all have an amazing couple of days. Get some rest and don't work yourselves too hard. ;) I think I'm gonna grab some of that rest right now. Goodnight everypony! post-25189-0-33094200-1412626540.png


    (I won't be on as much as usual for a couple weeks, til I can get my internet fixed up. You're not getting rid of me entirely for the duration though, you're not quite that lucky. ;))

    1. Tacodidra


      Good night, my friend! :) See you later! :fluttershy:

      I'm getting Amazon packages this weekend, my weekend's sure to be great!

  20. Hi Fluttershy Friend. I don't know if you're fully back or not yet, but it looks like you might be, and "might be" is close enough, right? So, if you see this... happy Friday! I hope you had a great 4th of July, and if you don't celebrate it then I hope you had a great day. :D I hope life's treating you well, and I look forward to your return.

    1. Fluttershy Friend

      Fluttershy Friend

      I see that you are quite good detective, my friend but I've poked my snoot on the forum only for a moment. Life could treating me much better. But of course thank you for your nice wishes. I appreciate it a lot! I hope your 4th July was a nice day. Have even better today!

  21. Just got back from my brothers' fireworks show. 19 minutes of non-stop high-quality action. No better show in town. B)

  22. Happy Independence Day everypony! Enjoy the fireworks and have some fun, but not too much fun eh? ;)

    1. ChB


      You too, Lyra! :D 

    2. Tacodidra


      Happy 4th of July, my friend! :D Too much fun... that's impossible! :pinkie:

    3. Sparklefan1234


      Happy Independence Day, BFFFF! :mlp_yeehaa:

  23. So... "Celestia" is responsible for the sun. Luna takes care of the moon and the night sky, which also holds the stars, countless "celestial" bodies.

    Hmm... :huh:


    That is all.

    Goodnight everypony! :P

    1. Prospekt


      Goodnight! May Luna watch over your dreams tonight! :)

    2. Duality


      Objection: Clearly Luna only takes care of two celestial bodies: the moon and the crystal sphere that the stars are embedded in. @Phosphor knows all about this; it's astronomy 101. :orly:

    3. Tacodidra


      That's just Luna being awesome! :orly:

      Good night, my friend! :D

  24. That's an interesting feeling. I just read a fanfic that solves an issue I never knew I had because I never gave it enough thought, regarding how the season 1 premier handled Nightmare Moon. The way it was written, this particular fanfic could technically be show accurate too; everything that happened in the show still happened, and in the same way.

    There's so much I could say about this fanfic that it would fill a book (or at least a few pages of one), but I'll shorten it down to simply this: "Her Soldiers, We" is a very interesting read and well worth the time it takes to read it (it's not very long).
