    Time to Teach

    Clearly I should take a moment to wish you a happy Hearth's Warming Eve before I actually get to the point. May your days be filled with family, friends, and fun, and may they be devoid of frost monsters and the tired political arguments that attract them.

    Thoughts on Feelings

    While I wait for ever-delayed comics, I'd like to talk a bit about something that is at best pretty tangentially related to MLP (and I won't insult you by pretending that the details of such a justification are in any way relevant): it annoys me when people say "That's not love" to dismiss a dysfunctional relationship. It's overly reductive and it obscures the actual problems.

    And so we begin what one might reasonably call the last bit of G4.

    On the End: Addendum

    I realized there's another notable moral one could draw from everything that happened with the Elements of Patriotism. It's one you likely won't notice without some thought, a fridge moral if you will; normally I'd say that a moral that takes effort to find is no moral at all, but in this case I feel it's significant enough to break that rule.

    On the End

    Though, like what I said a little over two years ago, that's not exactly true. There's still the Generations comics—people who aren't incessantly complaining about slow shipping already have one of those by now—and of course it's a safe bet that when we get more G5 we'll also get more references to ancient Equestria. But endings are still endings, whether or not they're total.

So. Jealous. · 7:58pm Mar 1st, 2014

That spell. THAT SPELL. That beautiful spell that Twilight cast this morning. Words do not describe how much I want that spell. But I must express it, and words are all I have.

But how could I not be envious? To live your life in only a single body must surely be the epitome of boring. And yet, almost everybody does it. Few change their sex, and even then the process is by no means perfect. None change their species. How much better it would be to simply try on races and species and sexes like clothes, to be worn at a moments notice when you so choose, and removed when your whim changes back. How wondrous that freedom would be. And oh, how the tedious restrictions of reality chafe in comparison.

Although I don't think the spell does sex changes. It's not a perfect engine of transformation. But it's sure as hay better than nothing at all.

So I say, go boldly, Dashie. Do not let Twilight hoard that spell, bringing it out only when she feels it necessary. Do not drop the subject until she agrees to turn you into a griffon or a dragon or something else that you might request, just for a little while. Your dreams shall have to stand in for the dreams of all of us.
