    It's the most wonderful time of the year (or near enough) and that means it's time for holiday avatars. The traditional embellishment is a Santa hat, but I like to go the extra mile. And while I've done plenty of Christmas avatars, I've never done a specifically Hearth's Warming-oriented one. Ergo, FoMEy the Windigo.

    It should come as no surprise that I enjoy a good crossover, but the latest chapter of Dueling Keyboards is breaking some new ground for me. It's not the first time I've contemplated working with the Caped Crusader, but it is the first I've been able to put

    Friendship is Card Games: Rainbow Dash Presents: Somewhere Only We Know

    It’s the Sunday after Thanksgiving in the States. And Black Friday, for that matter. So, let’s commemorate both with a tale of mistreated, overworked laborers and be grateful that most Equestrias aren’t like it.

    My apologies for a belated happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating it.

    I've been busy for the past few days.

    Friendship is Card Games: Generations #1

    We’re not quite done with IDW yet. This week, we look at what may technically be part of G5. After all, what else do you get when you add G1 and G4?

Expansion // Explosion · 11:51am October 16th

"The series premiere, but different" is a timeworn genre in most fandoms, and pony is no different. A good chunk of the authors here have put their own spin on Twilight arriving in Ponyville and that first journey into the Everfree, including me. But this one is special.

TFriendship Is Magic - Extended Cut
Season 1, Episodes 1 and 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic rewritten and expanded as a mature fantasy adventure.

This doesn't just plot a different route through the stations of canon. It fleshes out the political, social, magical, and other details of the world in an organic way as it does, going into detail and drawing from all throughout G4's timeline in a way the series never could. I am a tremendous sucker for good world-building, and this has it in spades, along with a deeply engrossing take on Nightmare Moon. And just about everyone else, for that matter. Best Pony's on the Ponyville town council!

So yeah, I heartily recommend this and its sequels. Fantastic stuff throughout.

It took me a moment to parce the "and" in the blog title. I tend to forget about the double slash in the Gatherer files.

Story added to my overly large list, I'll get to it Soon (tm).

The 100K+ is intimidating…

I'm now having horrible flashbacks to Wilderness Reclamation. Why would you do this to me? :raritydespair:

Just try taking it one chapter at a time. Trust me, it's worth it.

I just finished the first chapter, and I'm already hooked. (Thank/curse) you for bringing this to my attention! :twilightsheepish:

Oh, neat! Thanks for the recommendation! I'll... uh... put it on a list to hopefully get to at some point. :D
(Soo many words in the backlog... D:)
