Occasional author, overbearing aunt, and live-action horsewife.

Night is the cruelest time of day
In the light, the draconequii dance
And spread their chaos
In full view
Not caring who knows

And so night is the cruelest time of day
For in the dark, the draconequii sleep
And the Nightmares awake
Spreading their poison through ponies' minds
Sowing distrust and hate in secret

For night is the cruelest time of day.

Sorry for the late response, I had to sit down and plan out what I wanted to write.

Anyway...


Thinking on what you just said: "A large part of it was a craving for an innocent world, where good is easy and villainy is reformed. I was in a fairly dark place at the time, and watching nothing but darker media about cancer-stricken meth kingpins or serial-killer-killing serial killers didn't help. What I saw and heard about the show reminded me of the cartoons I used to watch – Merrie Melodies and the like – in its simplicity and execution, and I could tell even from screenshots that it was the work of talented artists and animators.

When I finally gave it a chance, the personalities and the chemistry of the main cast were a lot of fun but it's the deep history of the world that really kept my interest. There's something so fascinating about the idea of manually wrapping up winter or raising and lowering the sun and the moon. To be honest, I haven't even finished the fifth season of the show, since I feel that the writers have lost sight of much of what made the universe around these characters so special. I've reached the point of preferring to see my favorite ponies in well-written fanfiction than in the series itself."

For me, I was growing tired of shows like Johnny Test and other shows on TV that either started strong and peter'd out before they actually had the chance to get better.

Or you had shows that somehow managed to get popular despite having little to no effort put into anything. From the story to how the characters were drawn and even how their personalities are / were handled.

Granted, we still have shows like that now...but I digress.

If I had to guess, I'd say what drew me in (and still keeps me drawn in) to FiM was the interactions between characters, the various settings and locations within the Equestria universe and so much more.

Yet, I'm curious... When you said: "I haven't even finished the fifth season of the show, since I feel that the writers have lost sight of much of what made the universe around these characters so special. I've reached the point of preferring to see my favorite ponies in well-written fanfiction than in the series itself."

How or in what way would you say that the writers have lost sight of what makes the FiM universe so special? Would you care to elaborate on this?

I'd like to hear your thoughts on it.

Also, congratulations on having one of your stories be featured on one of the more prominent groups, here on this site.

One more thing: I noticed that you said: "I'm far too inexperienced at accepting money to have a system down, but I have a Paypal account and I'm happy to chat if you're interested." where commissions are concerned.

Well, about that... I may not have the means to commission you. But, I'd like you to know that I'm interested in doing business with you, in some way.

On that note, I wonder if you may be interested in discussing / bouncing ideas for stories back and forth between ourselves.

What would you say to this?

Nope! :twilightsmile: The first to tell me was your fine self. I'm still in shock! I'd never expected anything like this.

2597426 This. Did they not notify you?

2597367
Wait, what?! Hold the phone...
