Historical sources and issues · 3:32am Jan 22nd, 2017

Now for a little fun and history.

A few months back, I was studying the Spanish Conquest of Mexico, ultimately having four different authors providing me details. While a lot of the data lined up, some of it didn't, or contradicted, or had another issue come up.

The following videos are about the same battle; Teutoburg Forest, 9 AD. Although they feature the same event, both of them have major differences that might help you see the historian's problem of conflicting information;

Two stories that are slightly similar · 11:43pm Jan 10th, 2017

So I have two more stories I intend to start soon, one goes back to when Celestia and Luna became Princesses and the second is a Human transformed into pony one.

The historic one will be started a little later, but the human transformed will be started soon enough. You will see the plot of it when it comes up.

It will involve the Day and the Night in way.

Salem Sirens · 1:43am Aug 30th, 2016

Reading some Dazzling stories, I had a thought which led to an idea.

Rainbow Rocks was released in 2014, so we'll use that for the present time of the movie (even though it's probably sooner since it's only a few months after the first movie). Also, let us assume that despite the similarities to Equestria, the human world's history pretty much mirrors our own. Finally, based on the accents, we will conclude that Canterlot High is a school in the United States.

I did a thing again! · 8:19pm Feb 7th, 2018

So, out of the stories I was going to revise, 'Through the Snow' wasn't one of them. I ended up revising its first chapter and fixing a couple things in it, as wells as adding the 'lost chapter' from 'Missing Pages & Scrapped Footnotes'. I really liked revisiting the story and getting to add some new stuff, especially about historical Equestria/Tribal ponies. I had a lot of fun when first writing this, and when I went over this again.

Spoilers are firing!

This episode opens with Fluttershy and her critter friends hanging out inside her cottage, getting ready to enjoy a nice discussion as part of her furry friends book club activities (go to your local library and get some books. It's good for your mind). This is interrupted when, on Angel's prompting, Fluttershy realizes that she's being called by the map and has to leave.

Tarot Using Regular Modern Playing Cards

I've always thought that learning about divination techniques was interesting (from a historical perspective). I don't necessarily believe that they really tell the future or anything. But I do think they are neat to learn about, especially in the context they were traditionally used.
