    Friendship is Card Games: Pony Life, Week 6

    I return from my latest foray into Zendikar with… middling success. Zagras only gets you so far when the rest of your Sealed pool is largely mediocre.

    FoME Thinks Too Much: The Royal Arsenal

    Ideally, all conflicts Equestria faces can be solved through the careful application of diplomacy and rainbow lasers. But even in magical lands of pastel ponies, ideals can fall short of reality. Enter the Royal Arsenal.

    Friendship is Card Games: Pony Life, Week 5

    And we’re back to G4.5 and the horrible web of lies that keeps Fluttershy thinking she’s involved in something intended for a much younger age group.

    Let’s not think too hard about potential connections there.

    Prefaced Insight

    Rules clarification for Most Delightful Ponidox: When I say that multiple instances of a character have to interact, that means that each must at least be aware of the other's presence. No looking at the other from Superman's Silver Age time-space telescope or suchlike. Use this handy,

    I don't normally announce Group Precipitation updates, but given the content of this week's batch, I feel everyone deserves some advance warning. See, these are going to be very Homestuck intensive. Specifically the epilogue and Homestuck^2, neither of which I've been following. Expect more reader-response gaps than usual.

I have been very consistent in terms of avatars on this site. I've only changed it once in my nearly four years here, and that was an unsolicited art upgrade explicitly provided to me by the original artist.

And yet...

And yet I am presented with something so fantastic on so many levels that I find myself sorely tempted to switch to it. So I turn to you, my friends. Should I? Should I at last trade in Dr. Derpsano for this?

UPDATE: I've made my decision. Skeeter the Lurker raises an excellent point about the potential of rotating them. I'm going to try it out on a weekly basis. We'll see how it goes. Thank you all for your input.

Do it. For the change, for the awesome, for the lasers...

For Derpy.

>mfw there is no source link

A really funny picture, but I have to admit I think your current one is funnier.

Is the world ready for Alicorn Ditzy?

3269654 It is, but as everyone had been seeing it the long time, the 'fun' factor dropped to almost 0. If I say so myself.

Ooo, spiffy.

Switch between the two.

Hard choice bruh.

I think Skeeter might have the right of it.

Oh, man. It's sort of a tough call because both are cool.

If the glowstick is taped to the cardboard tube, how is the cardboard tube attached?

Then the question becomes how often to do so.

Flip a coin. That's how I solve most of my either-or decisions.

3269688 Whatchu doin' hur?

3269730 taped to the glowstik, duh!

3269766 Well that makes perfect sense!

3269759 Once a week? Or twice a month?

3269647 3269653 3269654 3269659 3269688 3269692 3269698 3269730 3269748 3269765 3269766

My decision has been made. I'm going to try out weekly rotation. Thank you all for your input.




Glad to help, chief.

OH! You little malaise blog has just reminded me of an obligatory wallpaper!

I'm quite familiar with the picture in question. Easily one of the best things to come out of the fandom.

I think I'm in love...

If I could think of a way to incorporate Cheerilee, I would. Leg warmers, maybe?

3269800 You're not hurkin' the gherkin'? *hurls*

It looks positively perfect :twilightsmile:

I could totally edit Derpy's head onto the artwork of Concordia Pegasus for you. Or better yet, Storm Herd.

I dunno, I kinda associate you with that googly eyed Derpy fic. Her pose just fit you so well.

Bow before your new overlord, Equestria...!

I, for one, welcome our new derpicorn overlord. As soon as I saw your new profile pic, I felt compelled to show it to my friend as well.

It is a truly glorious and majestic creature.

3270208 Dayum gurl where'd you find this?
On another note, you may also like ponKillerX and his stash. Seriously, guy put in scraps what I would never create.
I'd add an example but I don't know yet how to put folded/expanded content here :derpytongue2:

Ahah! It's the Chemlight Derple! :derpyderp1:

Don't worry, she'll be back.

You're doing it awesomely.

That's... actually a lot better than my name for her. (Herplight Derple.)

I was a little shocked when I saw you'd changed your avatar, but the new one's hilarious so I'll accept it.

Man, now I know how everyone else felt when I changed away from my Pony Creator icon. I saw an unfamiliar icon and my brain simply didn't parse your name for a few seconds and then it was all "Hzbuh?"

It's a great picture, though.

UPDATE: I've made my decision. Skeeter the Lurker raises an excellent point about the potential of rotating them. I'm going to try it out on a weekly basis. We'll see how it goes. Thank you all for your input.

It's been three weeks. How do you feel?

(I couldn't get my edit up there 3270598 to fit in Fimfiction's pixel dimensions without looking wrong, otherwise I'd have used it.)

Honestly, it took me long enough getting used to seeing Glowlight Derple next to my posts that now I don't want to change it. Plus, I'm still using the old avatar on Derpibooru, so it's not like I've abandoned it completely.


Hey, if you like it, that's awesome. Avatars can be real fun, yeah?

New Plan: Step one, get FOME to change avatars on Derpibooru. Step two, acquire FOME's old avatar. Step three, edit eyebrows.
