    Hinterlands Sequel: Bounty Hunters and Necromancers and Serial Killers, Oh My!

    Christmas is approaching! And what other way to celebrate the season than the tale of a necromancer, recently released from jail in a time of political turmoil, struggling to find her place in a world that hates her kind while crashing with the bounty hunter who turned her in?

    TUrban Wilds
    One's an impulsive bounty hunter with a thirst for adrenaline. The other's a reformed necromancer given a second chance at life. Together, they fight the necromancer's self-doubt (and also crime).

    Moondog Fanart

    Moondog got fanart.

    I know! I'm surprised, too! I've never gotten fanart before, but I guess you can share it if you think it's nifty? 'Cause it's nifty. It's of the moment where Moondog first takes up her crown. Art by StainedGlassLightHeart, commissioned by Level Dasher.

    My Little Pony: A New Generation Reaction Blog

    The time has finally arrived. A new My Little Pony movie is here to save us from our sad state of oligomicroalogoria (too-few-little-horsies-ness). I decided to record my reactions to it while watching, because why not? If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I have a brief, spoiler-free review before my reactions.

    The Behind-the-Scenes for the DCEU is All Over the Place

    I saw The Suicide Squad recently. It was pretty good. But it got me thinking: looked at from a film-history perspective, the DCEU is just the weirdest fucking thing. Seriously, look at it:

It's neat. Thanks to both of them!

Beautiful. Doesn't quite catch that, "hole in space" quality, but it's not a bad interpretation.

I don't think there's an accurate way to get "a hole in space" unless you make her invisible with a vague outline of whisps for a shape. Even for this interpretation, she's still very other-worldly with how she's just a child's drawing of an alicorn.

Actually thanks for replying to that message. It made me look at it again, (as i like to do with great art) and notice her hooves and regalia. They have that deep blackness, not just dark, but deep. I think that perfectly embodies how to capture a non-corporeal being. She couldn't be all deep blackness, otherwise she's just a black mark with no depth.

I think Rambling Writer's own art captured the "hole in space" thing well by using very thick outlines and having no shading implying 3D shape.
(Rambling Writer's own art is used as the cover art for this and all previous stories in this series.)

Especially in an animated medium, could use an effect similar to Unmoving Plaid to pull it off, perhaps?

Awwe it's adorable! Moondog has got to be my favorite OC from a fanfic, they're too cute!

What about Sun Ra?
