  3. So, any of ya remember the episode “Rarity Investigates” see? Say what where your thoughts on this see,how’d ya like the episode see? Say to ya think there should have been some lead action in there huh? Have a good day see! PS talk in a 1920s gangster theme!
  4. Basically, the story is about Bon Bon going back into her work in the agency she worked in some time ago. Instead of hunting monsters though, they assume a more "passive" vigilante role, in the same style as Person of Interest of Minority Report. They're using reverse-engineered cutie maps scattered across Equestria to analyze situations and see possibility of someone commiting a crime. The working title should be New Harmony, but I'm kind of afraid some people just skip over it and consider it yet another alternate elements fic. For now, I'm just wondering what you guys thought of the idea, and if you would read this fic.
  5. I'm a bit of a mid-20th century nut, and I'm looking to find a few good 40s/50s pony pics. I'm looking to get a signature made, but that's on hold until I find the art needed. Preferably, I'm looking for something grand and spectacular, like a 1940s rendition of Canterlot complete with all the bells and whistles, or a Ponyville suburbia from the 50s. Something that captures what Equestria would look like if it was set in that era. But sadly, Derpibooru has completely failed me and right now I'll settle for anything from a wartime propaganda poster to Applejack singing Chubby Checker. I can't really be picky right now. So yeah, post the pony art that your Grandfather would have commissioned if he had Deviantart access in Korea. Looking forward to see what you all find. Thanks.
  6. The tale of Clockwork Green is a tragic and grim one. Most fear and loath his very presence, for he was the next best thing to discord. But he hadn't always been this way. Clockwork green was a pony like any other, at least in the beginning. He lived with his father, Tinker Tok, who was a clock and watch maker. He had learned his father's business, building timepieces, and taking extreme care in the minute details. His interest in the inner workings of things went hand in hand with another special talent. His understanding of the nature of harmony and discord between ponies, and the intricacies of these relationships. He was so good with it, in fact, that he began to get ideas, ideas that would eventually end him in ruin. Clockwork began to find that he was able to manipulate situations to his benefit, by convincing others of things, and setting up situations for them to end up in. He could destroy or create relationships between ponies, and get them to do things for him through indirect emotional manipulation. His art soon manifested in his work, when he began to tear apart mechanisms and build his own inventions. Clockwork began disrupting harmony so much throughout his friends, that many of them had chosen to abandon him, having grown tired of being used. Almost all, except for one, his most loyal friend of all, Nova strings. Clockwork kept his friendship with Nova, as it was his only, and because Nova had proven herself useful to his chosen tasks. She would collect things for him, while he worked, and he would pay her in bits and inventions. Their friendship continues until she began to notice one day, that Clockwork had begun to change. He had been building a set of mechanical wings, which did not have a harness, and appeared to be unfinished. Nova looked to her friend, and asked him. "When will you be finished your new wings, Clockwork?" Clock turned around, his pupils mere dots, and a huge grin across his face. "They are finished." Nova was startled. "What do you mean? There's nothing to hold them on. How will you use them?" Clock pointed at her. "I need you to help me with that actually. Bring me my tools, and we can begin." Nova looked around, and located Clockwork's tool kit. She brought it over to him, laying it out, and was met with a sight that made her gasp. "These.. What are these? Clockwork? What are you doing?" The kit was filled with surgical tools. Clockwork glanced down at the tools and back to Nova as he climbed onto a work table. "I need you to implant them, and attach the cables to the right places. I've already taken painkillers, I won't feel a thing... Now get started, they won't last forever, and I don't want to do this myself." Nova gulped, realizing there was something wrong now, but decided to go along with it anyway. She knew he wasn't kidding, he would attempt it himself, and likely bleed out. She picked out the tools Clockwork instructed her to, and did her job with accuracy and care. Blood poured down the side of the table and pooled at her hooves. When she finished, she closed him up, and bandaged the area. Clockwork had blacked out some time ago. Once he had given his last instruction, he went silent, but was still breathing. Nova began cleaning up the blood, and attempted to wake Clockwork. He stirred, and then came to. "How long has it been?" he asked, groaning with the pain he suddenly felt. Nova had tears in her eyes. "It's been almost an hour since you blacked out.. I was so worried." "Nonsense" Clockwork remarked. "I had this all planned out. I knew I'd be out from this, it's all going according to plan." He climbed down from the table, and wandered wearily over to the mirror. "Excellent.. EXCELLENT!" He laughed. "This is exactly how I envisioned them." Clockwork tried to move them, and began flexing his new wings out. Tears of pain rolled down his face. The stitching was still fresh, and blood began to ooze into his bandage. But his grin went wider and wider. Nova went to him, placing a hoof on his wing. "You should let them heal first" Clockwork glanced back, realizing his bandage was drenched. "Yes.. yes I suppose you're right. But they work perfectly. I can't thank you enough." Nova added more bandage to his sides and back, and looked at him, intimidated by the colt he was becoming. She said nothing, though thoughts raced through her mind. This wasn't the Clockwork she remembered from her fillyhood. A week passed by, and Nova hadn't heard anything from Clockwork since they'd last been together. That is until she received a letter from him. It was written messily, reading "Come to my shop, I need you." She swallowed fear of what should wait for her in Clockwork's shop. Reluctantly, she made her way over, and knocked. Clockwork answered on the other side of the door, yelling. "COME IN!" She entered to find him strung up into something, some sort of machine. His wings were locked into it. Nova gasped at the sight. "What's the matter Nova? Something wrong?" His tone was nearly mocking. Nova teared up, and looked up to him. "Who are you?" She asked. Clockwork laughed heartily. "You know me! I'm always looking for attention. Here's my answer to the world. My beginnings in flight technology for Earth Ponies. Isn't it marvelous?" Nova Cried out and ran from his shop. "NOVA!! COME BACK! NOVA!" Clockwork was furious. "How could she do this to me?" He frantically attempted to escape his own machine, not having anticipated this turn in events. He struggled, but became yet more entangled in the cables. "NOVA! COME BACK!! HOW COULD YOU ABANDON ME??" Tears rolled down Clockwork's face. He swallowed down great sadness and anger, and then began to laugh. "Who am I?" He asked himself. "Do I even know?" He thought for a moment, and then looked up at the only thing within reach. The power switch. "Even if everypony has left me behind, I still have my creations. Let them laugh.. I will show them! I'LL SHOW THEM!!" He bellowed and burst out into maniacal laughter. "I'll Show them all." And with that, he hit the switch. Mechanisms began to whir and power up. His body had been fully entangled within the machine, and was unable to move much, but he could still see one thing. The clock on the wall, ticking away, second by second. He began to feel the energy course through his wings. "It's working." He thought to himself. His machine was driving power into his wings. Soon they would be capable of making him airborne, and he would have the last laugh. Everyone who doubted him would be shown, this was no ordinary pony. No, this was Clockwork Green, the inventor of Earth Pony flight! He would be honoured and praised for his achievements. Nova had spent her day hiding in her room, attempting to suffocate the reality of who her friend had become. Hours passed by, the clock, ticking away, each second, ringing in her head, reminding her of who she had left behind. Finally she stood up, and walked out of the room. She returned to Clockwork's shop, and swung the door open. The lights were off, nothing was visible except a couple cables across the floor where the light poured in. From the darkness, a voice came. "Help me.. please.. let me out of here." Nova knew it was him, but there was no way to tell where he was. She flicked the light, but nothing happened. "The lights are dead, my machine blew the breaker. You'll have to use your horn to light the way." Clockwork could see her from his metallic prison. Nova lit the room with her magic, and located him within the mechanism. "How do you get out of there? Her voice shuttered with fear. "The switch on the back, there are four valves you have to open. Let the pressure out, and hit the switch." Clockwork looked up with glazed and bloodshot eyes. Nova turned and went to the back, turned the valves and watched as the pressure gages dropped. She hit the switch, and all at once the room was filled with a deafening hiss. Steam billowed everywhere, she couldn't see anything at all. "Clockwork? Where are you? Are you alright?" Suddenly she felt something hit her, causing her to lose her balance and fall. She gasped as the weight of Clockwork's hooves pressed into her throat. "You should have stayed." He said coldly, and began to press down with all his weight. "N-NO.. WAIT" Nova tried to breath, choked by Clockwork's hooves. She couldn't break free from him. She kicked at him blindly, but kept missing and was losing strength. "Sleep now, just let the tick tock of the clock, lull you away." Clockwork's face was dark, but she could make out his crazed grin through her fading eyes. "Shhh. Quiet now.. Sleep now, and everything will be fine. I have plans for you."
  7. I recently did a shorthand drawing of 3 of my OCs. Each of which were done without the need of a model, or template. I'm just looking for some comments be it jeers or cheers on these ponies. The first one is Silver Lining, A pegasus with an artificial wing, the next is my Original OC Rivet Penelope Gearhead, The last is my only Stallion Noir. A unicorn and a student of Sombra. I will most likely trace this on the computer once I get a tablet or something to ensure quality but for now all i have is this drawing.
