    Friendship is Card Games: Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell

    So, to overwhelmingly greater demand than I expected (i.e. any,) I am delving into the official Friendship is Magic novels. There are a staggeringly high number of them, along with journals, mysteries, handbooks (hoofbooks?) and more. I have a newfound respect for G. M. Berrow in terms of her sheer output. In any case, let’s see what the very first one has to offer.

    Friendship is Card Games: d20 Pony, Ch. 1

    This one’s a bit unusual. It comes as a request from SirNotAppearingInThisFic (and yes, I do plan on doing the official chapter books, including one next week.) I didn’t really know what I was getting into when he suggested, but having taken a look, this does work.

    Friendship is Card Games: Rainbow Dash Presents: Bubbles

    The Mentally Advanced Series can be thought of as the Pepsi to Friendship is Witchcraft’s Coke; same concept, different execution, each with their supporters. I personally prefer FiW; MAS gets unpalatably cruel over time, especially once it’s no longer shackled to FiM’s visuals. But there is one offshoot, the Schweppes ginger ale of this analogy, where my tastes shift.

    Ida came and went through my neck of the woods, and on a semi-related note, we have some people who could use some help: shallow15 just needs a little aid at the start of the month, but Sprocket Doggingsworth is dealing with some severe flooding. Give what you can,

Profane Nectar 2: Cursed Wine · 3:15am Jan 16th, 2019

My thanks to everyone who chimed in on how not to make a cup of tea. The fruit of your efforts is now imbibable. But before you do, have a sample of what I couldn't fit into either the description or the story itself. Consider it a sort of teaser trailer:

Attempting to generalize magic rarely ends well, for magic is applied chaos, a refutation of normal physical laws and the application of preferred alternatives. However, one trend that emerges from that chaos is the figurative made literal. On the Discworld, for example, there really is a place where the sun doesn't shine, a canyon so deep that light, rendered into a sort of luminous syrup by that strange world's magical field, cannot reach the bottom in all the hours between sunrise and sunset.

Similarly, in Equestria, there is a house divided. Specifically divided between two roommates in color scheme, architecture, aesthetics, and virtually everything else. Conventional, proverbial logic says that this state of affairs cannot stand. Normally, it is wrong, for Equestria is a land of harmony where disparate parts naturally come together to form a greater whole.

This principle works best when the roommates are speaking to one another.

Now on Fimfiction: The Things Vinyl Drinks.
With apologies to SS&E.

When I saw the title, I thought you were announcing a sequel/second chapter where Vinyl deliberately drinks a glass of wine in the most "wrong" way possible. That said, I enjoyed the deleted scene.

I'm totally jacking part of this for Starswirl's notes on magic.
