    Tumbleweed vs. Friendship in Disguise #2!

    Masked up, went to the comic book store. Support local businesses, whoo. And the nice lady behind the counter didn't even put me on a list for getting this comic book and an Immortal Hulk trade at the same time! Neat!

    A weekly-ish update!

    Oh, hello.

    So yeah. Figured I'd at least get into the habit of checking in via blog these days, because it's ... something, right? That and I'm addicted to the little 'ding' of the alarm icon.

    Tumbleweed vs. Friendship in Disguise!

    And by "Friendship in Disguise" I mean the recently released comic-- not the crossover fanfic that I started and never finished a couple years ago.

    How (not) to do research.

    John Boyne is a serious author, who writes serious books. None of this "genre" malarkey, you know.

    And as it would happen, his most recent novel, A Traveller at the Gates of Wisdom, spans thousands of years across the whole of human history. Because he is a serious author, you know.

How to write Fluttershy! · 4:22am May 9th, 2018

"Oh Tumbleweed!" you cry.

"Please, sir-- it is readily evident you are BEST AT PONIES, so tonight, tell us how to write the shy pony, Fluttershy! Share your wisdom, which is certainly wise and not just stupid things you are posting on the internet because you are bored and the thing you're working on isn't going as quickly as you hoped."

And with a request like that, well, who am I to refuse? Though it's worth noting that Fluttershy is one of the trickier ponies to write, as she has, like, depths and layers and stuff. But, again, I have mentioned I am Best At Ponies (this has been proven with science), so let's have a go.

Step 1:

Get drunk.

Wine drunk.

White wine drunk.

Step 2:

Watch this:

(I've seen this band live, for the record. They're great).

Step 3:

Realize that "You always have to watch out for the quiet ones" is a cliche joke, but it's cliche for a reason. Also, Fluttershy has, like, hidden depths and stuff. Write about that. Also she may have a thing going with either Rainbow Dash and/or Discord, 'cause of the wings.

Also, Angel is the worst but he should probably get his own entry in this series at some point.

Angel is why Fluttershy drinks White Wine Spritzers.

Angel is why Fluttershy will bury you in the desert.

Oh Tumbleweed!
I'm too lazy to write.





So I'll continue pestering you to write stories I like.

Is... is that an entire band of Ned Flanders cosplayers? :rainbowhuh:
