Well done on the writing for Xenophilia. It's some of the best fanfiction work I've seen anywhere, period. It's up there with the Redwall, Discworld, Xanth, and Young Wizard series's prose, continuity, and overall sense of being truly well-defined. As an avid reader of all types of stories from a very young age, that is saying something.

You've done well, Anon. I only hope that, with practice, I can come close to your level of skill as a wordsmith. Your type of work is something this world needs more of, and desperately.

Soooo... Are you going to be working on the side-stories? Do you have any ideas?

312863 Yeah,. Pinkie. She's not actually as random as many people presume. Pinkie is, for all intents and purposes, ADHD. Just like me. My friend, when he first showed me MLO, asked if I was psychic, or if I'd alreadywatched the episode, because I kept getting PoPinkie's lines before she did. It's how I think. Going off tangentially I'd not random, it's just a series of thoughts that lead you from one thing to another. For example, if you were to tell me that we needed to speak about the elephant in the room, I would get a thought in my head. Elephant, maybe. This time, it was The Room. The Rom... Tommy Wisau. Tommy Gun. Gungun. Jar- Jar's a Gungun. And then suddenly: " Where would Jar- Jar,Binks even HIDE an elephant?"

One interesting thing to note: You've become so famous as an anonymous that you are no longer anonymous; rather a second extension of yourself. Basically, you grew into two different people. :rainbowwild:

It makes sense to me. Part of my problem with writing Pinkie is that she tends to be somewhat... inconsistent? She breaks the rules of the setting, and that makes someone like me go all cross-eyed. I sincerely appreciate the insight! (Sorry for the slow reply, too!)

Why, thank you! Incidentally, I'd also like to thank you for those riffs you're doing; I took a chance at looking at one (I was hesitant at first because I'm quite aware of my own work's flaws, and was worried I'd get all self-conscious and stuff) but I found the result to be funny and a bit heartwarming instead of biting. So, kudos, and thanks for picking my story to riff!:twilightsmile:

Oh, I most certainly do remember. You were the first response after me on the second part of this story.:twilightsmile: Sadly, with Ponibooru gone, the origins of Xeno are somewhat lost, but I saved both images and the comment chains therein.

Just a random aside

Anyone who's read Xenophilia has probably realized that the ponies I write about don't look quite as cartoony as they do in the show; I've always seen them in my head as having slightly more "realistic" proportions. You know, smaller heads with slightly more defined faces, more definite hooves, larger wings on the pegasi, etc. I'd found an artist a while back whose ponies look remarkably like they do in my head. His name's Jykinturah, he's the one who does the Blind Dash tumblr, and I love his art style. If you're curious, here's links to his SFW art blog and his SFW/NSFW art blog.
