If there is something about a story that doesn't work for you, please let me know. Should you click the thumbs down button (I hope no one would feel the need to), I would appreciate commenting on your choosing to do so. I think that there is always room for improvement, and I am open to suggestions. From critique experience, I know that acknowledging what works is always a stronger path than calling out what doesn't. That being said, please enjoy my stories, and be on the lookout for more.

The Quest for the Thunder Stone of Tlaloc

Inspired by Daring Do, I designed an audio adventure with a friend about two treasure hunters who go in search of the Thunder Stone of the Aztec god, Tlaloc. I've considered developing a Daring Do adaptation for Fimfiction. Get your pith helmets, fedoras, and whips, and click the link to join the quest. Hope you all enjoy!

It's a word I made up combining cinema and magician, reflecting my love of films and the art of movie magic.

What's a CineMagician?

Thank you! I'm happy you like Saddle Song. I'm still trying to figure out what his cutie mark will be. Some ideas include a saddle on a music staff with a treble clef and a bass clef on either side, two horseshoes making a guitar body and a fret board to complete the guitar, and a guitar and treble clef in an X shape.

In the spirit of singing cowboys, Saddle Song can't go without yodeling!

I'm also happy you've been enjoying these cowboy ballads. I hope that Saddle Song will pay tribute to both those who originally sang the songs and those who keep them alive for new generations.

I love this idea! I already love Saddle Song the Singing Cowpony. I would love to see you bring him to life in this story of yours and how you would bring him to life. Go for it, my friend!

Also, I'm loving all of these songs you are linking. Thanks so much for sharing them all!

No worries!

By the way, I've been tossing around some ideas for a new story inspired by Old West ballads. I've created a new original character, Saddle Song the Singing Cowpony, who is based off of singing cowboy film stars from the 1930s and 1940s, particularly Gene Autry and Roy Rogers.

Another inspiration comes from Riders In The Sky, a group who is working to keep the songs of the sage and the silver screen alive for new generations, and have celebrated their 40th anniversary this past November. This is their rendition of one of the most famous cowboy songs, which not only named the band, but is also based on an old legend of a place called Stampede Mesa.

Please let me know what you think.
