    Equestria Girls Name Game

    It's been a while, hasn't it?

    So...Equestria Girls.

    This isn't going to be a rant or a rave about it. I just want to talk about one glaring dilemma I have:
    The names.
    Early on, someone somewhere posted a rumor that, since the characters were humans, they would have human names: 'Pinkie Pie' became 'Paulina Pettifer', 'Rainbow Dash' was 'Roxy Dodgers' and so on.

    Perigee

    With my permission, Dr-J33 has begun writing Perigee, their own sequel to my Twilight/Comet Tail story, Perihelion. It's off to a good start so far, and I encourage whoever reads this to check it out. Just follow this link.

    FEATURED!

    I never thought it would be so soon, but for two hours...two wonderful hours...I saw 'Perihelion' up in the featured box! I seriously want to thank those who made that possible! Now I just hope I can live up to whatever expectations you may have of me...

    Wow. Just...wow.

    Not even a FULL DAY after I post 'Bed-Ridden' and I ALREADY have 22 likes with over a hundred views?!?
    Seriously...I wasn't expecting this at ALL.
    Which just makes it all the more welcome. Thank you all very much!!
    But, as mentioned on the cover page, critiques are still readily accepted!
    See you soon!

    First Blog!

    It took some self-persuasion, but I'm finally a member of FiMFiction! I've been a long-time visitor of this site, but only now did I realize I wanted to post some of my own stories, as well as read what's on here.
    Well, that's it. Just wanted that down. Short and simple. Don't know when I'll post another of these, though. See you when I see you!

Equestria Girls Name Game · 11:14am Jun 24th, 2013

It's been a while, hasn't it?

So...Equestria Girls.

This isn't going to be a rant or a rave about it. I just want to talk about one glaring dilemma I have:
The names.
Early on, someone somewhere posted a rumor that, since the characters were humans, they would have human names: 'Pinkie Pie' became 'Paulina Pettifer', 'Rainbow Dash' was 'Roxy Dodgers' and so on.
But when the movie came out, it was clear this wasn't the case. Same names in both worlds.
My problem? I kind of LIKE the human name idea. It just makes sense to me - too much, actually.
As you've seen, I went with this idea in 'Rebuilding'. But I want to ask all of you: Which do you prefer? Which one makes more sense to you? Would it be too confusing to refer to our near and dear ponies by human names? Or is giving humans pony names too silly of an idea for you?
Let me know what you think.

This is late. But whatever, I wanted to reply.
I liked the human names for the Mane Six, and it would have been cute to see that. And it wouldn't be too hard to remember.
