Status Update · 10:09pm May 13th, 2018

I'm still around, but have written no words in the last two months or so, and am now, as of this month, 6 months unemployed (with no sign of getting anything anytime soon.)

No words have been written in a while so both stories are kind of in a stuck state.

Growing up has been put up for adoption · 5:06pm Mar 29th, 2018

Hey all,
I have decided to go ahead and officially put Growing Up up for adoption. As such, I have added it to the Fanfic Adoption Agency (FAA) group for adoption.

You may also PM me if you wish to adopt it as well so I can take a peek at what stories you've written, and finished.

Thinking about putting Growing up back up for adoption · 6:12pm Mar 20th, 2018

Hey all,
This might just be depression/discouragement speaking, but I'm contemplating putting Growing Up back up for adoption. I've been busy as of recent trying to feverishly build a portfolio so I can find work again, so I haven't gotten a single word written in about a month (no one seems to want my PHP backend developper/C++ developer skill set, and I've been out of work for 4.5-5 months and it gets harder to convince an HR manager to consider you the longer you've been out of work.)

Estimating G3 heights part 2 · 12:46am Feb 4th, 2018

So since the last time I did one of these, someone proposed that I use Santa's door in A Very Minty Christmas to calculate the G3 ponies' heights.

Before we begin, here's an article estimating the G4 pony heights:

And another:

Yet more Minty errata: G3 pegasai can fold their wings, albeit not to a comfortable position · 7:34pm Feb 3rd, 2018

Straight from the G3 books:

Here's contextually male (there was a spelling/continuity mistake in the original book) Star Catcher folding her wings as she talks to Twinkle Twirl:

So it looks like I was wrong when I said that the G3 ponies can't fold their wings at all, but it DOES look like they can't fold them to their sides for comfortable sleep al-la G1 or G4.

EDIT:
And here's a couple of examples from G1, and G4:

More Minty erata: the wand doesn't glow the user's magic aura, and the objects being effected don't glow. · 7:19pm Feb 3rd, 2018

So, apparently, another piece of erata with my story:

When the magic wand operates on an object, no magic aura is given by either the wand, or the object (but it can sparkle):

The wand, however, does occasionally glow it's own pink glow when casting magic:

G3 Core 7, Heathspike, Minty and Rarity exist in the same universe? · 9:37pm Jan 29th, 2018

Cannon headaches abound! Because, apparently, they do, at least in the G3 chapter books.

Are horn auras visible in G4 · 3:41am Oct 3rd, 2017

Hey all,
As you are, or are not aware, I'm working on a G3 crossover. In the current chapter, the changelings capture a certain G3 unicorn, and are befuddled by the odd glowing of her horn (not the aura around her horn as she casts magic, but her horn itself.)

And as part, I tried to add some world building, but reached a conundrum.

Canonically in FIM, are the auras around the unicorn's horns visible, when they cast magic? Or is that just something the artists do for our convenience?

More G3 errata in my story. · 6:12am Sep 24th, 2017

So apparently Lilly Lighty was assisted, in Come Back Lilly Lightly, by not just Cheerilee, and Rarity, but also Bright Brightly (the Yellow Rainbow Princess). Meanwhile, Whistle Wishes (the blue one) was nowhere to be found.

So why does this matter?
