    Plushie stuff

    So, let's talk bout plushies. For those of you who don't know by now, which is hopefully very few of you, I'm funding my wedding (happening July 28th) on this site so if you donate you can get a bunch of cool stuff.

    But I digress. This is about plushies.

    We have a lot of you who have ordered one. 26 orders, to be precise. My financee is on her third draft of her plushie pattern right now, so we're hoping to get the final design finished. Once we do, we'll be able to start churning them out. We'll be ordering the minky soon (minky being the material that most plushies are made out of) and we got a bunch of paint color cards so we know what colors we want to use, so we hope to have a final product ready to show you by the end of the month at the VERY latest. Like I said: once the pattern's done, we can start churning them out. For those of you got thank you cards, we are making those today, so if you did order one, if you could PM me your address so we can get that to you, that would be lovely.

    So, what I need from those of you who have ordered plushies, if you have not already given them to me, is which character(s) you would like so we know what to make. Ideally one of my characters since those are the ones we'll be producing the most of (Blossom, Antares, Blaze, Rapids, etc.) but we'll honestly do whatever. So yeah, PM me with that info. I can't promise them soon because we're still figuring them out, and because there is a long waiting list, but I can promise that we will get them to you, and once we figure out the pattern, we can start producing them quickly. At least a few a week.

    So yeah. I also hope to be updating soon. I kinda got sucked in by South Park: Stick of Truth a little bit. I also watched this movie last night called Snowtown (alternatively The Snowtown Murders) which was rather brutal, but rather well made. I do so love Aussie horror. I have plans on Shadow, Jackie, Alicorn, and Life. Given that it's October, I might finally write that serial killer Applejack fic (by far the most brutal one I've ever written) that I've been tossing around for years.

    So that's what I'm up to...

    Alternate My Little Pony Intro

    I made one. Most people skip the theme. So I made a new one.

    A bit of backstory here, though. I used to do MST3Ks of the episodes and throw them up on Youtube. I got to Keep Calm and Flutter On before Hasbro started blocking them all worldwide. Now, I always changed the theme song because there was no point in having the same one over and over again. Some of them were actually okay. Like for the one to Luna Eclipsed I completely cut out the traditional one and instead made one with a black background and the Halloween theme playing in the background. So, just for fun, here's the one I made for the Season 2 finale, which was my personal favorite.

    Marriage Fund Mishaps

  • ...

Princess Celestia, tired of the constant pressure that ruling a nation puts on her, decides to take a day off and let Luna take her responsibilities for a day, something the younger alicorn is more than happy to do. She disguises herself as a pink maned pegasus pony named Sunny Skies and decides to go walking around Canterlot without any supervision. Unfortunately for her, not all parts of Canterlot are as safe as the palace, and she finds herself at the wrong end of a gang of muggers, who decide to kidnap her for a ransom when they see how much money she has on her.

Luna freaks out.

Celestia thinks it's hilarious.

I have to say a typo in the second paragraph isn't very promising

#4 · 77w, 16h ago · 11 · 3 · A Royal Ransom ·

I'm assuming this is a spin-off of Sunny Skies All Day Long?

If so, I commend you for doing it. :twilightsmile:

if this doesn't get Featured, I'm going to riot.

Definitely thumbs upping and faving so this gets featured. :twilightsmile:

>>2507131 Are you trying to say you're a person that exists outside my trolling on mod blogs?

#9 · 77w, 16h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Ah, Celestia and her pranks...:trollestia:

#10 · 77w, 16h ago · 5 · · A Royal Ransom ·



But seriously, I look forward to more of this story.:twilightsmile:

#11 · 77w, 16h ago · 15 · · A Royal Ransom ·

>>2507134 You aren't the only one! D:

Being the princess of the sun and the sole monarch of Equestria for a thousand years meant that Celestia had a very specific image that she upheld when in the public eye. It did her little ponies good  and gave them courage when they saw her as a regal, unshakable rock that could protect them from anything and who was seen as everlasting just by her aura. It would have confused her ponies to see her giddily bouncing around her room like a school filly on her first day of school, throwing a few items into a simple saddlebag that she rarely used.

(Noble 1) D: What.... what is she doing?

(Noble 2) I .... I think she's leaving...

(Noble 1) ...Oh shit, those two idiots from earlier drove her insane, and now she's quit, didn't she? WE'RE BUCKED! WE'RE COMPLETELY BUCKED~! D:

>>2507149 How was the rest of the story?

#13 · 77w, 15h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

This story already has premise I've yet to find anywhere else. Can't wait to see what happens. Trollestia's coming to play.

#14 · 77w, 15h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Getting hit in the head by a pillow(In her mind) and pretending to be knocked out? You troll! :trollestia:

I just love your works!

#15 · 77w, 15h ago · 2 · · A Royal Ransom ·

Before I start giving this praise, just a couple of things I need to nitpick.

"In truth I envy you your trip, sister."

You your? :P

"I well help in any way that I can!"

*Will  There are other typos here and there, but this was the most noticeable.

Also, both of these lines Celestia basically repeats not soon after she says them.  Just small little scenes to go back to and gloss over at some point.  Those are really my only grammatical/dialogue based gripes.  Granted, I could also complain how there aren't enough commas used at certain points, but that's likely just me.  I, use, way, too, many, commas, for, my, own, g,o,o,d,,,.

Sorry if I sound like I'm just complaining about certain things, but I'd like for the first part to be well polished and well presented, because what you have here is actually pretty interesting and funny so far, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with this.  What I'm saying is I'd actually like for the story to do well, because you have a good setup going right now.  

But yeah, all I'm asking is that you just take some time to pre-read your story a bit more.  Or perhaps hire a few volunteers to do it.  Whichever works.

>>2507193 It could use polishing, but I do like where it's going. BronyWriter usually has interesting stuff

#17 · 77w, 15h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Trollestia at her finest. :trollestia::trollestia::trollestia:

From BronyWriter, no less! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Great twist on the usual Celestia day off fic!  

#19 · 77w, 15h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Ok, this looks promising.

I, dear writer, shall fave, track, and up vote.

Don't let me down now.

                Catching a tiger by the tail is not hard. Letting go is!

Also I wonder if Equesteria has the equivalent of our saying “To Catch a Tartar”.

   Meaning to catch someone or something that turns out to be more formidable than expected.

   More please.

Uh, why is Luna using Old English? The last time I heard her speaking on the show, she used Modern English

Thy princess approves. Tia always did have a most awful sense of humour. Continue at thy will hoof servant.

#25 · 77w, 15h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Come on! I was expecting a one shot...

#26 · 77w, 15h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Sounds like the Sunny Skies All Day Long  fanfic by PhantomFox, but with a twist. I shall watch-or read I guess.

#27 · 77w, 14h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Now this is what I like to see in my notifications :twilightsmile:

Hope that this gets done quick, cause this just has sooo much comedic potential :pinkiehappy:

Only gripe I have is that "she felt what seemed to her to be something akin to being struck" sounds really awkward. I'd suggest cutting it down to just "she felt something akin to being struck with a pillow". It's simpler, and, combined with her realization about them trying to knock her out, gets across the message that they couldn't even hope of harming her.

That... doesn't sound overcritical does it? Oh dear..... :fluttershyouch:

#28 · 77w, 14h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

:trollestia: and that's why they call her trollestia :trollestia:

:pinkiehappy: MORE MORE! MORE!? :pinkiehappy:

#29 · 77w, 14h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

This will be funny.

#32 · 77w, 13h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Trollestia strikes again!

Luna is going to go ape-sh%&, but why... really? I mean... doesn't she know just how powerful Celestia is? Assuming she knows that it's Celestia anyways. Still, the reactions are going to be priceless, though I'm more interested in what Twilight would do if she found out. Rage-shift to end all rage-shifts, ripping the roofs off of the entirety of the Canterlot slums, while burning like an infernal star in the sky? Entirely possible. Spike would probably attempt to calm her down and be a voice of reason, but we all know that isn't going to happen.

#33 · 77w, 13h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Hoo boy, this is gonna be interesting...

#34 · 77w, 13h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

#37 · 77w, 12h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Hehehehe, I couldn't help but laugh in certain spots. I'm very interested in how this will develop! :pinkiehappy:

#38 · 77w, 12h ago · 1 · · A Royal Ransom ·

>>2507371 I always liked that character trait of hers. Plus, there's no indication that I'm giving of when this is. It could be two weeks after the Nightmare Moon thing.

#40 · 77w, 11h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

Care to guess what I'm going to point out?

#41 · 77w, 11h ago · · · A Royal Ransom ·

This will probably go quite well...right up until the muggers try and figure out who to send the ransom note to.

Even if they take it straight to the palace, nopony knows that's Celestia's mortal disguise, probably not even Luna!  How will they react to having caught a noble nopony recognizes?

Oh, this is gonna be good. She is far too naieve in the ways of normal ponies, but hopefully she'll lose some of that as the story progresses.

Also, if she gets Stockholm Syndrome, then I totally called it.
