    Any icon makers out there?

    I'm looking for a new icon, but not form my OC, but for one of the programs on my computer. I'm running the Inverse-Blue icon set on my computer, and really hate the icon for Palemoon. Since I'm asking here, I bet y'all can guess what I want as a replacement, but for those who can't, I want an icon of the Mare in the Moon. So, anyone up for that? I'm happy to pay for it.

    Tweak to the reviews

    Small one, but we're now queuing the reviews. One review posted an hour until the queue is empty, starting at 1600 hours. At least if things work right, right now the queue is claiming 1600 and then 0800 for some reason. We'll be working on it, but this also means that announcements to authors will be when we have time to get a link, because until it's posted, there's no link to share.

    Back to reviews

    Yep, I'm getting started on them again, just two quick pieces that aren't proper reviews so far, one commenting on the long break between reviews, and the other giving an overview of the newest stuff on my reading list.

    Virus

    Soooo, apparently starting tomorrow we're in lockdown... quarantine... Sorry, shelter in place. Still trying to figure out the point of the order, considering that the list of things you're still allowed to do are go to the grocery store, pharmacy, get food, access essential services and work. Ummm, so basically the same things I've been allowed to do until today, right?

Season 9 Premier [potential spoilers] · 3:16pm Apr 7th, 2019

Ok, potential mild spoilers, but only ifn you haven't seen the trailers.

So, been a long time since I wrote one of these. So, let's talk about the season premier, the Beginning of the End...

Grogar, awesome villain, awesome design, also interesting history, is it me, or was there inklings of a possible origin story for the sisters in there? Grogar was defeated according to him, long before Celestia and Luna existed, and whoever defeated him existed before them and might be responsible for them.
We get an origin for the tree of Harmony, and it gets destroyed... maybe. I mean it did sprout a castle, and maybe a school, so, what are those, it's children, an extension of it, or...?
Sombra gets defeated, duh, there was no doubt about that, was there?
Cozy Glow is not really all that impressive in this episode, which is disappointing. Sure, Tirek was manipulating her to a degree last season, but most of the evil came from her, and the evil seems to have been turned down a lot.

Over all it's a good episode, aside from them needing to be reminded that they don't need the Elements, something they apparently forgot since the Tirek battle, it was a generally flawless episode that didn't re-tread anything we've seen before, and also expanded the mythology a bit. Can't wait to see what they do the rest of the season.
