    When they change form

    I'm supposed to be doing something, so of course I'm doing this.

    When/where are the instances where members of the mane six change into something else?

    I won't be coy, this is for a series of 'variant' cards I'm doing for my card game project. Right now, I have:

    • EQG for Twilight
    • Seapony for Pinkie, since she was a focus of that part of the movie

    State of the Writer, July 2021


    I actually wrote a story!

    It's been done for a couple days now, I've just been waffling on whether or not to look for feedback before posting it. Also pondering whether I want to commission a cover art. Also being distracted by SCP stuff. <.<

    Fic recs, July 30th: SJF95fighter/MrLeftTurn edition!

    Our next reader is SJF95fighter, who hasn't uploaded a fic reading in three years or a video at all in 6 months, so I don't hold out hope for more. :B He's only got five other readings past the one I reviewed previously, including Final Draft's A Generic Story, so I am

    Fic recs, July 26th!

    Looks like ScarlettBlade is calling it quits. :( He's been around forever, though, I guess can't complain if he feels it's time to move on.

But I'm too busy watching Youtube.

This one's for everyone here. :)

The first part of the video is exactly why I started writing the 'Tutor' series. I had gotten so sick of the "Hi, we've never met but I'm in love with you let's bang" stories involving the Mane Six that I was overcome with "I can do that better-itus." Really, romances had this mental tag of "Harlequin wife's books" and I never thought I'd be writing one, but after Genealogy was done, it seemed like something worth at least one story. Three later, including a wedding and a birth...

"Some kind of passible bad communication resulting in some sort of contrived conflict..."

(Quietly raises hand) Guilty as charged of multiple counts.

Seriously though, a really great video to help us all, as writers, to be a bit more self-aware of the sort of tropes that our writing can fall into, even if unknowingly. Thanks for posting!

Also, now that I have a bluetooth speaker for audiobooks, I need to go back and retry every single fic reader I've ever said was too quiet for my needs. :)

Oi, I feel ya there, bud :pinkiesick:

"Some kind of passible bad communication resulting in some sort of contrived conflict..."

That’s a whole sub-genre right there.

Love at first sight is silly, but I do know a few folks who saw their future spouses and knew immediately they'd be the ones they'd marry.

They got lucky!

Very much so.


I need to be doing things. But there's always a song that pops into my mind that I need to add to my playlist.

Then whilst traversing the filth in the loungeroom I'm trying to clean, I catch sight of something in the hallway I need to clean. Which reminds me that I need to rotate over the laundry. Which reminds me that I have clothes to fold. Which reminds me I have clothes I need to put AWAY ... which makes me realize I need to vacuum the floors inside the closet ... which reminds me I need to go and buy more vacuum cleaner bags.

YouTube isn't a distraction! It's escapism!!

An escape from the guilt of not doing things because I'm distracted by Youtube. :B

Was this for me? :pinkiegasp:
