Why do you suppose I chose a certain corvid as my avatar?:raritywink

I'm a huge fan of Victorian literature, so I enjoyed the piece.

It's coming to the spoopy scary skeleton month, isn't it?

Might as well bug some ponies around here in a totally friendly way, ofc

Have you ever read "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe, and if so: what did you think of it?

>>1455647 na i would follow you at some pont in the future if i didnt

Dunno... must have been a long while ago, though, as I'm in the top third in your list. Is it bad that you did?:pinkiesad2:

#1452813 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·

WTF when did i follow you? :derpyderp2:

#1451976 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·


at most the end of the two-parter.

Not in the Best Night Ever!

Anyway, I wasn't referring to the show, but to the "History of Equestria"...

But now you are making me think... you have never read that Lauren actually planned for Twilight to becoming Celestia's successor at the end of the series, have you?

... I thought that the "Equestria Experiment"... that Twilight overcoming every obstacle without making any bloodshed, as she did with the dragons, while Celestia has never been able to do so... the Princess of Harmony title... Spike... did I get it all wrong?


I don't have as much use for her.

Last time I heard that, it was referred to Spike.

Obviously I can't and I don't want to tell you what to do with your fanon, but (and probably I am getting the wrong idea. Again :raritydespair:) don't make the same mistake. Removing Spike from Twilight's life has been like ripping away a part of her. And of course even if you will never do something like that, if you are going to "tone down" her role in Spike's life, it will never feel right.

As you once said they are a team. They are supposed to do almost everything together! Friendship should be magic! And comments should be shorter!

Oh, she's undboutedly the "mane" character on show, but as I said, it's in my fanon where I don't have as much use for her. Twilight is presented with a problem, and it is solved at the end of the episode... or at most the end of the two-parter. It's a show for nine-year-old girls, and we shouldn't expect more than it from that. It's not High Art, after all.

but as the show has toned down that relationship it's Twilight, not Spike, who I find less and less essential to my fanon.

That's very interesting, I've always seen Twilight as a crucial point in the FiM storyline.

What do you have in mind?

Well, thank for answering my question!

#1448967 · 1w, 5d ago · · ·


That is an excellent question... but you put it in a very hard context for me. Her relationship to Spike is what characterized Twilight for me in the earlier seasons. I enjoy Twilight's character because she has so many facets, but none of them fully realized. I can't help but feel that she's become a little too straight-forward over the last two seasons, as though focussing on her abilities has lessened her personality. In short, the way that she treated Spike revealed a lot to me about her character, but as the show has toned down that relationship it's Twilight, not Spike, who I find less and less essential to my fanon. I guess I'm in the position of not being moved very much by the "mane" characters story arcs anymore... which is quite sad.

A little curiosity of mine, your favorite character is Spike, and I can understand why, I can also understand why Celestia is another one of your personal favorites, but about Twilight, what is so special about her?

Well, excluding THE relationship.

Dear Loyal Watchers, Interested Visitors, and Confused Passersby,

Most of you know of my obsessive need to thank folks for Faving my stories, or for Watching me, or to reply to comments and the like... but now I have a real problem. To whit to whim: Do I thank people for placing my stories in their bookshelves?!

I had forty-three replies when I logged in tonight, and all but three of them were from people adding my stuff to their newfangled bookshelves! The problem is that I know that some of them are people who already Faved my stories, but others I don't know about and even though I really like the creative titles people are giving their bookshelves it gets hard for me to decide who is a new person who is using the bookshelves as a Faving system and who are people who are my old readers who are just trying to keep things neat and who is kinda in the middle and that makes it hard for me to thank people for investing in my works which is something that I really like to do and now I'm all confused and it's late and I feel like I haven't accomplished anything in the fandom today and I'm confused, scared, and a little gassy and I really, really, really, really, really, just want a little direction from you all because you know your opinion is important to me and I feel valdiated by it and I crave human interaction and a pony and for your input because you all know i love ou but not like that and I just need to go to slep and everything is turnning blue and oh gawd I can't breathe now what arg
