    Update (Without excuses this time!)

    Guess what? I'm done writing the next chapter of Manifesto.

    I just need to give my prereaders a day or two to look over it, and then it'll go up.

    Until then, here's Despacito being played on a guzheng.

    Hey, everyone.

    I've somehow gotten out of the habit of posting updates. Oops.

    Anyway, you've no doubt noticed that I don't post as often as I once did in the past. This is largely because improvements in my life situation mean I have the wherewithal to engage in hobbies other than writing fanfiction.

    Update.

    Goodness, it's been a while, hasn't it? You're probably wondering why my pace has slowed down on Manifesto. Well, there are several reasons, but the most relevant one is that I find myself rewriting large swaths of this chapter as I zero in on the best plan for Sunset to take. I'm basically going back and forth between two ideas that can't really be combined into a single one, and for

    New Story Incoming

    In case you missed my last blog post, I'm taking a break from the adventures of Celestia and Daring Do to write the next Petriculture story. At this point it looks like it'll be fairly short -- about two chapters long -- and I recently finished up the first chapter, which will be posted once my prereaders give it a final once-over.

That... was a lot of fanservice. Fortunately, it wasn't the sort that you find in your typical anime, ifyaknowhatimean.

I'll keep this simple, since there's probably plenty of other reaction posts cluttering up your feed.

1. I liked The Dude's cutie mark. It really tied the episode together.

2. I find myself wondering if the folks at DHX came up with the idea of Cranky and Steven's bromance because they thought it was something the fandom hadn't come up with yet.

3. Those were some suspiciously generic names in the credits there. "Muffins," "Doctor," and "Lebowski Pony."

1. I think Gummy's internal monologue really tied the story together.

2. "Oh, it's so true!"

3. Muffins is her actual canon name, unfortunately. Ever since they retconned that one episode where AJ works for Cherry Jubilee. It started with the little toy catalog things, I think, Derpy's Muffin's miniature's name was listed as just a picture of a muffin.

1. Pardon?

2. I thought it was just because they had the same hair.

3. Isn't she still Derpy? They called her that even in the iTunes edit of The Last Roundup, unless I misremember it. Also, they actually put in "Lebowski pony"?

1. I see what you did there.

2. I really like the Cranky-Steve friendship. And, yea, I don't think I've seen it in the fandom before, so good job Hasbro for beating us to the punch.

3. She'll always be Derpy in my heart, and just calling Doctor "Doctor" makes sense given the context.

My thoughts on the Episode?

:pinkiecrazy:

I'm just irked at the missed pun potential. He's listed in the credits as "Lebowski pony". Should have been "Lebowlski"

3146185 You know how the bowler ponies are based on the leads from The Big Lebowski? The one modeled on Jeff Bridges has a rug for a cutie mark, presumably based on the same rug that "really tied the room together" in the movie.

And no, Derpy was not mentioned by name in the iTunes edit. It was just "Now, careful," rather than "Now, careful Derpy!"


3146861 I've always preferred "Letrotski" myself.
