Being a Better Writer: Sidekicks · 10:56pm Sep 19th, 2016

The original concept for this post, or rather I should say request as that's what it was, was for information regarding a comedic sidekick. But I've decided to expand on that a little for two reasons. First, dying is easy, but comedy is hard. Really hard. I envy those who can write comedy, like Adams, Prachett, Taylor, or Korman.

-The character must be either a pony or a griffin.

Corn & Peg: Thunderhoof Update · 7:40pm Aug 4th, 2020

Yes, I'm still keeping up with the show, sort of. I still don't think it's a good show, but it has grown enough on me that I kind of like it.

Mini Re-Reviews: "Just For Sidekicks" - Season 3 Episode 11 · 10:39pm May 12th, 2020

SPIKE: "That Angel Bunny. Up to no good as usual! And here I thought Discord caused chaos."
DISCORD: "You rang? Oh, all these pets sow plenty of chaos, you know. Why, I should stick around to see it -"
SPIKE: No, Discord. We're not doing that."
