About the Author

Skywriter is for all practical purposes Jeffrey Channing Wells, best known in Internet circles as the co-creator of the award-winning daily webcomic "Skin Horse," whose coincidentally equine name is just that.  He also writes non-pony fiction, which you should totally check out over at  He quite sensibly views winged ponies as having the best of both worlds, a point which is totally indisputable so don't even try.  To sum, up, Ms. Lovingcup Harshwhinny is best pony.  Thank you.

So, huzzah!  In order to convince the powers that be that there is an adult market for Pinkest Princess toys, I hath purchased a Funko Cady and Shiny.  The photographic proof:

It was basically not a question that I would purchase at least the Candybutt version, and, well, may as well buy a Shining Armor as well.  I would like to say that it was a sound business decision based on Hot Topic's "Buy 1 Get 1 Half Off" policy, but I am beginning to suspect that it had more to do with preventing inanimate object grief syndrome.

They had my money the second they announced these figurines, but now I am stuck with what to do with them.  They are a bit large for my work desk without raising inconvenient questions, and I don't really have a large curio cabinet for display purposes.  Do any of y'all have these things?  What do you do with them?

EDIT:  If anyone says "Target Practice" you will make me cry.  And you do not want that.

Also apropos of nothing:

Me on Saturday:  "Man, I didn't really like the Troubleshoes episode.  I doubt I'll be watching this one again, at least not frequently."

Me today: (is watching episode for the third time)

Fscking ponies, man.

I will happily entertain the idea of requests, though I make no promises!

Do you take requests?

There are hazards to being known as 'Princess Candybutt'.

Not in the slightest!  Thanks!
