Scene: a real-world classroom of aspiring JDs · 9:29pm Last Friday

Instructor, after shutting off “Forgotten Friendship” as credits start rolling: “Now, class, when Sunset Shimmer touched Wallflower Blush’s arm and reached into Wallflower’s memories, does that constitute assault under the laws of . . .”

Does anyone else get the feeling . . . · 9:00pm Last Thursday

. . . Starlight Glimmer is five to ten years older than the Mane Six (or Seven)?

For context: I always have assumed, based on Ms. Faust’s assertions the Mane Six were supposed to be in the age range of twelve to eighteen, they started the series roughly in the middle of that—around fifteen, give or take a year, which would make them roughly high-school age. Imagine that.

Idea for new Lectern’s installment · 11:23pm July 7th

This may be a silly question, but . . . what would people think of Sci-Twi roping her friends into a one-shot session of Ogres and Oubliettes in the front parlor?

And if folks do like the notion—which I suspect is a foregone conclusion—I would be very, very interested in suggestions regarding everything about said session. As in, please send suggestions and ideas. :duck:

Silly little question · 11:11pm June 3rd

So . . . I’m thinking of setting “Talking Heads” in a fancy restaurant. Should Sunset wear:

  • A trim, sober suit, like she wore in Diplomatic Overtures?
  • A frilly, striking dress, like she’s worn in episodes?
  • If the latter, does any particular design stand out, or should it be original?

Broken spring · 5:44pm April 24th

Well. “Spring Breakdown” . . . happened.
  I should begin by stating this has nothing to do with Virga per se; I knew that job was dangerous when I took it. This is about the episode in and of itself.
  It was bad, pure and simple—possibly worse than the original featurette: awkward pacing, enormous plot holes, dreadful characterization. This was not at all up to Mr. Confalone’s usual standards.

Cover art (and user icons generally) · 5:48pm March 27th

Do:

  • Do create the art and design yourself, if possible. If not, find someone who can and will for a reasonable price (or trade, or whatever form of mutual exchange works).
  • Do use simple art with strong contrast to have a prayer of being readable at small sizes. That’s why my user icon is just a heavy white outline on a black background.
