    I live.

    Time's gotten away from me.

    2020 got weird. My 2021 started with an honest effort to get back to normal. But after I started getting treated for depression, I began to see more and more ways to improve things in my daily and family life that hadn't fit together very well in years. Including some of the core issues that had pointed me in the direction of MLP in the first place.

    Artistic Expression

    It's been too long. Things are great. Really, really great. Not so much for writing, but for different modes of expression and life.

    “Senator, you’re no GaPJaxie”

    As it happens, this fellow over here threw out a request for story prompts, and my own suggestion has garnered quite a few upvotes. Not only did this strike me as a fun thing to see in the venerable Pony fandom in the Year of Our Lord 2021, but it reminded me of

    Glad tidings to you as we shimmy up to the exit of the holiday season, and of 2020 as a whole. :twilightsmile: Today I've nothing more or less than a spotlight to shine on two Hearth's Warming stories about which I'm biased, and a brief note about a character in my recent story. I can't call these "reviews" because of my personal stake in them; but in both cases I'd call these "criminally

    Pieces of Eight

    With 2020 drawing to a close, it seems like an opportune time to close the book on a couple other things as well. To wit: my odds-and-ends collection Stuck In The Middle With You, which has heretofore been stuck in perpetual Incomplete status. I've been sitting on eight entries for it forever that will start to trickle out in the next week or so. Four are "Starlight Fixes"

“Senator, you’re no GaPJaxie” · 7:31pm March 14th

As it happens, this fellow over here threw out a request for story prompts, and my own suggestion has garnered quite a few upvotes. Not only did this strike me as a fun thing to see in the venerable Pony fandom in the Year of Our Lord 2021, but it reminded me of my own such post from two years ago. That was pre-MLP finale, pre-COVID, pre-BronyCon 2019... in other words, from a distant past of untold legends. And perhaps a past worth revisiting.

Tl;dr: toss me a few prompts and I’ll crank out some short content. GaPJaxie said he’d write ten(!). I’m maybe half the writer he is, so I’ll cap it at five.

Rules/guidelines will be the same as before. These might be real shortand written as I get time; please calibrate expectations accordingly. Also please keep it E or T, with preferably no/minimal shipping (though I’ll make some exceptions here, especially if I’ve shipped it before).

Apple Bloom plants a tree that turns out to be the World Tree, Yggdrasil.

Prince Rutherford sets out to prove yaks are best at Zen gardening.

Spike and Gabby briefly ruminate on the disconnections between them and their respective kinds' cultures.

(Fun Fact: thus far, my suggestion on Jaxie's page is the only prompt that's been downvoted.)

Each of Pinkie's sisters has her own way of dealing with her... Pinkieness.

Spike and Rainbow Dash go to a comic shop...
Daring Do the manga? :rainbowderp:

Same prompt I come up with and don’t write every year:

Just a steel-town mare on a Saturday night, looking for the fight of her life. :trollestia:

Thanks all! This is plenty of suggestions. I’m not opposed to hearing more, but these are where I’ll focus.

I like this. It could go in several directions. I’m thinking existential or horror right now—but I’ll see where it takes me.

5475501
Yaks aggressively best at zen? Yes! I’ve been meaning to write some Rutherford for the longest time...

5475526
Sounds like a perfect palate-cleanser slice-of-life. (And I’m not sure why your suggestion would get downvoted, other than people being unpredictable!)

5475609
This is relevant to my interests! :moustache:

Don’t tempt me with comic shops and MLP; I’m liable to drop someone into the Power Ponies ‘verse. :trollestia: But seriously, this could have legs. Thank you for it!

I can’t believe it was five years ago that we were first kicking that around. I still have what I started for that way back when, and I keep going back to it every so often. One of these days I’m just gonna hammer down and see what it turns into.

Imagine her disappointment when it turns out to be a bog-standard oak tree; it was a Breezie World Tree...
