1. I wish.

I’ve written a huge number of those Points of Canon posts. Someone might actually use them as a reference.1

Which means that it might be helpful to define certain recurring terms that are not always defined in the posts themselves, which became sort of a shorthand.

Comics, and Canonicity of Concepts · 5:20am Jan 25th, 2016

There are those among us who declare the IDW comics null and void on their face, that no part of them should be considered part of the MLP universe as far as further fanworks are concerned. "Sombra is not the scion of a long-forgotten race of monsters opposed to the Crystal Ponies and their empire," they say, "and he does not have a mirror universe double with whom Celestia is mutually enamored." "Rarity was never possessed by the Nightmare which was born of Luna's pain and jealousy," they

I had to add something extra onto an Amazon order the other day, so it would pass the minimum amount for allowing an add-on item that I wanted. And clicking some related links brought me to

Understanding Canon · 7:20am Mar 1st, 2015

Canon is an often-controversial subject in fan circles. In some cases, points of contention are legitimate ambiguities. In other cases, it occurs because people can’t agree on what canon actually means. But what is “canon”, and why is it so important?

The idea of “canon” comes from the so-called Biblical canon – that is to say, the books of the Bible (or another religious text) which are considered to be authentic and divinely inspired. In other words, the word of God, writ large on paper.

I’ll be doing these four as a single unit, because they are continuous.

This was not the pony I needed, but the pony I deserved.

Yes, I’m going to continue this series until everyone unsubscribes. :)

I’ve got some time, but no energy to write.

But I can analyze canon in my sleep. :)

So here we have the first source to feature Cherry Jubilee in forever…

I’m holding back on the Shadow Lock storyline because it’s a three-parter, and I’m not sure what to think of it, and I’m holding back on Legends of Magic #1 for a similar reason.

But Friends Forever #37 is standalone, so might as well sort it out while I have the time.

Winter in Equestria is the time when nothing ever happens.

This comic is, if my memory serves me right, the only winter story in the entire MLP canon and demi-canon not explicitly connected to Hearth’s Warming or season change festivals..

This is a three-parter, so I’ll deal with it in bulk.

It’s interesting in that it defines more of Discord’s limits and is incompatible with many dominant fan theories…

And I’m going to get rid of the backlog in one sitting.

This particular comic is notable because it pairs Pinkie and Cheese Sandwich. Rejoice, shippers, because if you don’t ship Pinkie with anyone on the Mane 6, he’s the only reasonable candidate, and now you have more fuel for your turbines.
