Groups I Belong To
The Elements of Harmony have decided to offer advice to other ponies, griffons, mules, cows, humans and any other creature capable of more-or-less sentient thought!
Just ask them a question about life, friendship, love, the best time for planting, how to keep a nice sheen on your wings, the proper etiquette for an airship launch, or anything else they can help with. They do love to help. (The ponies are not answering personal questions about themselves at this time.)
