Well, she is kind of cute

This image — no one credited the artist, alas — turned up on Derpibooru. The screenshot is of course from The Crystalling Part II. Somepony is probably muttering something to the effect that “I know it might be wrong, but I’m in love with Twilight’s mom.”

Somewhere down the road

Everypony’s headcanon is just a hair different, and this is somepony’s idea of the Mane Six grown up a bit: Fluttershy and Big Mac (that is my OTP for Ponyville, and I’m stickin’ to it) marry and have a couple of foals. Rarity moves to Manehattan and becomes kind of famous. Rainbow Dash gets into the Wonderbolts. Applejack kind of… (more…)

No secrets

Sethisto tossed this question to EqD readers: “Do You Tell Your Non-Brony Friends About Your Interest in Pony?” Well, yes, but how could they not know? The farther you get into my house, the more likely you are to see something pony-related; there’s a plush Twilight Sparkle on my desk, fercryingoutloud. And I learned today that a second co-worker has… (more…)

I blame changelings

After problems getting into the site, I decided to hang around the back door, and found some highly dubious code injected into the front page. Not sure what it was for, but it can’t be good, so I replaced an obviously bad file with a backup. Performance has improved markedly. (The site’s performance, I mean; I’m the same slug I’ve… (more…)

Another digit

I am at least slightly amazed that I’ve been doing this for three and a half years. And if I’m not as productive as I might have hoped I’d be, I’ve somehow managed to pick up a few fans. To all of you, may your new year be bright and full of promise, and twelve months from now, may those… (more…)

A Glimmer of retconning

How The Cutie Re-Mark should have ended, according to longtime fan Erin Palette: Twilight, realizing that Starlight Glimmer is pathological, decides that she needs to go back in time and prevent the childhood trauma from happening (basically, a pony version of Let’s Kill Baby Hitler). So Twilight uses her special talent in magic — remember, she was promoted to princess… (more…)

No longer seeing stars

There is turmoil in the Twitterverse, or at least some segments of it, over this: We are changing our star icon for favorites to a heart and we’ll be calling them likes. We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers. You might like… (more…)

10/10/10

I was not on hand for the rebirth of My Little Pony five years ago; I barely remembered the first generation, and didn’t bother to keep track of subsequent changes, because hell, it was just a freaking toy, right? Wrong-O, Buffalo Bob. (And could there possibly be a Buffalo Bob, somewhere on the fringe of Appleloosa?) I hesitate to characterize… (more…)

A little reciprocity here

I mean, if it’s okay for a human to date a bear, I don’t want to hear any more complaints about a human dating a unicorn, okay?

In sameness there is peace

I keep going back to this, because not everypony seems to get the point: Free yourself from your cutie mark by voting for Starlight Glimmer in 2016! As the equalist candidate, Starlight Glimmer invites all of America to experience true friendship for the very first time. The only way to be happy is if we’re all equal! I figure, if… (more…)
