    Holidays, etc.

    Been a while, hasn't it? Apparently the holidays happened or something, I wasn't really paying attention, and now we're here.

    Happy Halloween!

    So that wonderful time of year has come around again. Children dressed as ghosts and witches wander aimlessly about neighborhoods after dark in hungry packs, accosting house after house in the ravenous pursuit of sugary confections. Yes, it's Halloween time again. Or... maybe just another Monday, depending on how lax the parenting is in your neighborhood.

    Season 6 Ep25-26: Thoughts, Spoilers, Etc.

    So... That happened. A lot of the world building with the changelings I liked. Still processing how I feel about the reformed changeling appearance (Those antler/pincer horns could be badass). And that hive! Gah, so many ideas...

    BABScon 2016! (The sequel)

    Another year, another con under the belt. So, like... two. And a half... Anyway! I had a blast this year, and enjoyed meeting those of you I could. Now, with depleted bank accounts, pockets full of shwag and a sparkle of glee in my eye... It's back for the final week of the college semester. The soul-crushing, stress-inducing, dream-killing final week. Turns out taking the weekend off on finals

    BABScon 2016!

    Just a short one today. As some of you may know, tomorrow is Babscon, and if you've been keeping up with these blogs (for some reason), you might know that I'll be there, too. And if you're going to be there, come on over and say hi! I don't bite (that costs extra).

Consolation Prize · 6:50am Feb 25th, 2013

Just gonna be up front about it; the next chapter is going to be late due to life getting in the way. I'll try to get most of it done tonight, but odds are you'll be seeing it Monday, or even Tuesday.
So instead, as a consolation prize, I'll leave this little teaser here.

Also, the next chapter was inspired by both this song and this song.

Anyway, thought I'd share that. I feel bad about not being able to deliver on time -- I really do. Just want you guys to know I am hard at work, and will see you then.

(Don't worry, no real spoilers to the plot (SHUT UP, MOLESTIA) below. It's safe to peek, I swear!)


“Ugh, this town is boring…”

Rainbow Dash glowered down over the edge of a thatched roof at the ground below. The material itched and poked uncomfortably against her underside, furthering her irritation.

The rainbow-maned filly rustled her wings uncomfortably. What she wouldn’t give for a good race right then.
But Ponyville was filled with a bunch of slowpokes, including some who’d never even been to Cloudsdale before. How was that even possible?

Everything was so boring in an earth pony town. Why’d her dad have to take that stupid job in that stupid weather management opening in this stupid town?

Now Cloudsdale – there was a city. You know a town is awesome when free falling was just another part of an everyday commute.

But this place… This place, ponies were walking. That’s it. Just walking.

On a scale of one to ten, Rainbow rated Ponyville as a negative-three, and that was being generous.

This place is so lame…

“Uh… What’er ya doin’?”

Rainbow blinked, momentarily snapped out of her grumpy spat. She glanced around, looking up and around out of habit – you never could tell where a pegasus was going to pop up at.

But to her surprise, it wasn’t a winged pony that was talking to her.

Down on the road running in front of the house, there was a little, orange earth pony filly. She was roughly Rainbow’s age, give or take a year or two, and currently she was looking up at the cyan pegasus with a rather perplexed look on her face.

“What does it look like I’m doing?” Rainbow snapped, glaring.

The earth pony blinked. “Ah don’t know. That’s why Ah was askin’.”

She paused, glancing up and down the building with an uncertain look in her eye. “Ya aren’t supposed to be up there. Ya know that, right?”

Rainbow just blew her off. “Pfft, who cares? And why do you talk like that?”

“Like what?”

“Like that,” Rainbow said, cocking an eyebrow. “It’s sounds kinda weird.”

The little filly frowned indignantly. “No it doesn’t!”

“Yes it does,” Rainbow shot back.

The little filly below her glared up at her. “Why don’t ya come down here and say that to my face like a real pony would!”

Rainbow’s temper flared. All of the irritation she’d been feeling, all of her pent up frustration at being stuck in such a stupid, lame excuse for a town, and now she was getting talked down to by a filly!

“That’s it, you asked for it!”

~~***~~

“And what do ya have ta say for yerself, little missy?”

The orange filly hung her head low, her little ears flopped down against her head. “Ah’m real sorry fer buckin’ ya through that wall.”

From her spot on the hospital bed, Rainbow grumbled, frowning deeply. Well, trying to anyway; the bandages around her head were making it hard to show what her face was expressing.

“You didn’t buck me through it. I got stu—ow!”

Rainbow winced when a hoof came down on her tender head, bonking her noggin lightly – and yet still hard enough to make her see stars.

“And what do you say, Rainbow?” asked her dad meaningfully.

Rainbow glared at him, which he returned evenly.

“But Da-ad…”

He just gave her a hard look.

Rainbow sighed loudly, slumping her shoulders.

“Fine… I’m… sorry for making fun of the way you talk.”

To her surprise, the orange earth pony gave her a bright smile. “Ah forgive ya, Rainbow! Friends?”

Rainbow grumbled against, leaning back against her pillow.

Already she could tell that she was not going to be getting along with this filly.

Yo Rainbow Crash, yer friend's a changeling.

1) Every time I see your avatar, I think, "Are you my mummy?"
2) Heehee. Filly Rainbow and AJ are always best ^_^

863987 One of these days, I'm going to have to track down that episode and watch it, just so I don't feel like a doofus wearing something he shouldn't :twilightblush:
Either that or change my avatar. Maybe I'll get photoshop just so I can shop a gasmask onto a pony. That'd be hilarious, I think.

864856 That. Is. One of THE. Best. Episodes!! How could you not have seen it! And then it's referenced by the 10th Doctor later on. Oh, you HAVE to watch it ^_^
