Some dork on the internet that likes ponies and flower symbolism way too much.


My favorite depiction for Star Swirl the Bearded

I’ve seen fancier ones, and highly detailed ones with rich colors, pictures of him doing great deeds or portraits done in classical styles.

But in this one, Star Swirl is simply a pony. A pony that looks like he carries a great yoke and this is one of the few times he gets to rest. He looks very tired, and a little sad. I like that it’s a humble sketch, like something someone that knew him might have drawn.

I wonder how old he is in this. It can be assumed that he’s elderly, since he’s elderly in most pictures of him, but I like to think he’s middle aged or in early adulthood. It’s just that Star Swirl has always looked old, even when he was young.

I swear I'm gonna write a story based on this

Chapter six of The Silver Standard is almost done! Just one more scene. And a half.

Right now, it looks like this.

It's actually one of the neatest pages in the draft.

You’re looking at page four because I was going to post tiny update blogs of the rough draft’s progression and the wacky places I end up writing (this one was in a Target) but it didn’t happen since A) pretty sure nobody cares and anyway it's probably better suited for Instagram probably idk I don’t really use Instagram, but it's full of people's dinners?and B) I forgot.

For the record, those other places included but were not limited to

-  a mall

-  a day spa/hotel lobby I they should have kicked me out of but didn’t

-  the bus

-  various libraries (three I think?)

-  a much fancier hotel that made me feel suddenly poor and I really should have been kicked me out of but also wasn’t

- a waterpark*

- a convention center despite not attending that convention

- a Pizza Hut

You're also looking at the main reason why I update monthly and not bi-weekly. The whole thing is pretty much written twice, since that essentially forces me to make the final draft better and allows the rough draft to suck as much as it wants to. A notebook--especially a cheep two dollar Office Depot notebook--isn't nearly as intimidating as a blinking cursor. That and I can cross stuff out or write in margins or make notes as much as I please.

Also if it sucks too hard, I can just rip out the pages, stomp on them, and throw them in the river like a sack of kittens. Quite cathartic, despite the littering fines.

I expect to finish the rough draft by Tuesday, and the typed/final draft to start by Thursday.

Upload day should be around the first week of September, but my schedule gets a little funky soon, and I'm gonna have to carve out a new writing habit, so we'll see.

* Would not recommend. Page 16 is kind of soggy.
