I’m just mad about Saffron

I suspect, though, that she’s quite indifferent to the likes of me. “Spice Up Your Life” aired Saturday. It’s Wednesday and we already have plushies. (This one was a header at EqD.) Then again, this is typical of the MLP:FiM fandom; it’s not a sudden craze or anything.

A familiar exchange

Found late last night on Derpibooru: Can’t say I’m surprised, exactly — though I had no idea we were already in the year 1010. (I’m still writing 1006 on my checks.)

They call this colt Pariah

This search string came in today, and while it doesn’t boggle the mind, it does shake the head a bit: a pony in ponyville who is hated by everyone chapter 1 I mean, if everypony truly hates him — and how likely is that in a place like Ponyville? — he’ll never make it to Chapter 2, if you know… (more…)

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…)
