    I commissioned my first piece of MLP artwork!

    The idea randomly popped into my head the other day and wouldn't leave. I also knew mere words would not be able to capture the full breadth of my vision, hence why I didn't just write a story. But I shan't keep you waiting any longer. Behold!

    Thought Prism Recommends: Gleipnir

    It’s a very, very good anime. So good that I’m reviving this blog series I haven’t used in… six years? Wow, I’ve been here a while. As for the show, I just rewatched it - but dubbed this time - since the blu ray is now out. If I had to describe the show in one phrase, it would probably be ‘R-Rated Fullmetal Alchemist’. Jump in blind, it’ll be fun, I promise.

    Well, this is awkward.

    So, apparently, I completely misinterpreted Lancer's lore, such that the main conflict in No Time For a Sunset would never have arisen in the first place. Per one of the game's creators in the official Discord server, NHPs don't actually lose their memories when they're cycled. I suppose this is both good news for Sunflower and a condemnation of the level of clarity

    If the Mane Six played Lancer

    Because I can't keep my brain on track, have a mental exercise. Lancer is a sweet tabletop RPG I've been playing, featuring mech pilots in a nifty far future setting. But which ones would are favorite ponies take into battle? Here's my take.

How did it become tradition for Yak cakes to contain vanilla extract in the first place when vanilla beans only grow in the tropics? Very suspicious if you ask me...

Oh, that's from back in the days when Yaks ruled the entire planet, before the ponies drove the armies and people of mighty Republic of Smash on a death march to the Frozen North and stole their rightful heritage.

How sure are we that the production of vanilla extract involves any actual vanilla beans, though? It's been a damned long time that was true in our world, and Equestria's chemical industry is pretty much the only part of its technology to reach the level of our modern day.


Blame Discord. He probably laced then-traditional yak cuisine with all kinds of exotic (and thus imperfect) flavors until, chaos being chaos, he accidentally provided them with one they liked.

Fortunately, the resulting stampede-crusade for vanilla beans provided plentiful havoc and upheaval. Discord still considers it one of the best mistakes he ever made.

I was not expecting this many plausible explanations, haha. The answer, it seems, is still up in the air.
