    New History Chapter

    Back from the dead to bring you another chapter of History Reimagined! Sorry it's been so long. Real life still sucks, plus last semester was crazy busy even before 2020 went completely off the rails and into the dump before getting struck with lightning and catching fire.

    New Horsewords! Yay!

    So I got tired of making blog posts that never led to any actual content, so I did it in reverse order: Content first. Guess what? It worked.

    History Re-edited

    Hey guys! I'm going to resume writing for History Reimagined very soon. (And I know I've said that several times now, but no seriously, I mean it this time.) Now, asking you to reread everything that came before could come across as rude, but honestly, it's probably necessary. And maybe not just necessary for you guys but for me as well, as there may be a few minor details I've forgotten

Hey guys, and welcome back to another Fandom Music Friday! So, what have I been listening to this week? Well, I've been getting back to my roots. And for that, I've thrown back to a legendary piece from the prehistoric year of 2013, back in the good ol' days of the fandom. Yes, you youngsters just don't know, I'm afraid, but maybe some of you fellow fandom oldies will remember listening to this song back in the day. Maybe--just maybe--I won't feel quite so old in saying this.

Ah, yes 2013 was way back when MandoPony was still using the "Pony" part of his YouTube name and AcousticBrony was still a brony. Back in the day, these two brony musician giants collabed under the name AcoustiMandoBrony. Together, these two worked their way through four of the six Elements, creating one song apiece named after the pony's respective Element. (Sorry, Applejack and Twilight. They haven't uploaded to this series in three years. Doesn't look very promising for you two. :ajsleepy: :twilightangry2: ) But of the four they do have up--Loyalty, Kindness, Generosity, and Laughter--the one that stuck with me the most was Kindness. :yay: If you must know, Loyalty was a close second. :rainbowdetermined2:

Kindness as a song really resonated with me. Fluttershy (aka Best Pony) was always the pony I felt most alike, and thus projected onto the most. When those lyrics first hit my eardrums back in (oh, I have no idea when lol) for the first time, I knew I had to put to memory "[their] song of [K]indness." My first fanfic, one of the unpublished ones, was a Fluttershy adaptation of My Little Dashie and, as such, was a pretty strong self-insert. (Fun fact: If you look through the groups I'm in, you can still find it off-site. It's a trick to do, but it's possible. If you find it, comment "Found It" in the comments. (Fair warning, though: the quality of that story is bad!))

Perhaps I wrote that story I just wanted to show her "how [she's] helped me,/And how much I have grown." Truly, this show and this character have taught me things about myself that I never knew. She's taught me to be strong in the midst of weakness and brokenness. She's taught me to be kind, yet balanced with assertiveness. She's taught me so much more; this is just off the top of my head.

It's truly a shame that this fandom has lost artists like Acoustic and Mando. Whether they just got burnt-out or what, I'm not sure. But one thing's for sure; they will be missed.
