Calm Wind


We writers do not speak. We do not hear. We have no songs. We have no pictures. We only have scripture. From words we bring images. From words we bring emotion. From words we bring life.

Wonderbolt Age Chart · 8:46pm Jun 29th, 2014

Why not? I've been keeping their ages sort of out of the picture for a while... but it will be important going forward :)

So here you have how old i picture each of the Wonderbolts being.

(Note: i have mentioned in the past how the lead Squad was the youngest lead squadron ever chosen. I've also in the past mentioned that Misty Fly was a popular Wonderbolt when Dash was a filly.)

Pony Sizes · 5:10pm May 10th, 2014

SO!

I've made many references to how tall or big certain ponies are compared to others in my stories. While they are all practically the same height/size in the show, i've messed around with the concept a bit as i've written.

So i threw together a few vectors including all the characters i've used so far (minus twilight shining and cadance) to show generally how they all compare size wise.

Some of the vector perspectives made it hard to work with, but meh, it was low effort:

50 Questions? Why not? ;)

Saw this elsewhere on the site and figured why not? I've made a lot of new friends here recently, this seemed like a safe and easy way to tell a bit about myself.

1. What's your name?

- Chris

2. How old are you?

- 26, Born on August 10th 1989

3. What country do you live in?

- USA

4. What do you look like?

-This is all you’re getting

5. Who do you wish you looked like?

-I prefer the way I look actually

6. How did you come across MLP?

-I initially scoffed at it like I did the older versions of the cartoon. Then I heard it was made by a lot of the same people who worked on some of my FAVORITE childhood cartoons like Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack. So I watched a few episodes. It’s a great well put together cartoon. It has great animation, 6 main characters who are all heavily conflicting female personality types (leading to lulz), well timed gags, and common well thought out morals. Hard to find that in a cartoon these days.)

7. Favorite ship and why?

- Soarindash. Soarin is my favorite male character and Rainbow Dash if my favorite female character so it works out perfectly. I also have a lot of athletic knowledge from being an athlete for 15 years of my life, so I can incorporate a lot of that kind of stuff when I write for them.

8. Least favorite ship?

- To each their own. I have no problem with any ships as long as it can be cute. (I tend to prefer straight shipping though.)

9. Have you admitted to everyone you love ponies?

-Never more than an explanation as to why it’s so popular. (See number 6)

10. Were they family?

-Yes

11. Favorite episode?

- Power Ponies and Rainbow Falls

12. Favorite super hero?

- The Goddamn Batman

13. Favorite anti-hero?

- Deadpool

14. Favorite super villain?

- The Joker

15. Favorite anti-villain?

- hmmm, good question.

16. The last book you read?

- Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

17. Last movie you watched?

-Lego Movie

18. Favorite song at the moment?

- Propane Nightmares by Pendulum

19. Favorite song you keep coming back to?

- Disturbed’s cover of Land of Confusion (Originally by Genisis)

20. Current job?

- Legal and general finance research at a hedge fund

21. What is your ideal future job?

- Something in finance after I get an MBA

22. Dream Job?

- Fantasy Novelist

23. What is you greatest achievement so far in life?

- Being the first male track sprinter from my college to make it to Division 3 NCAA nationals in the 200 meter dash since 1964.

24. Greatest failure?

- That same year, prior to nationals I placed second in the 200 meter Dash at conference, losing to the runner in first by only .02 seconds. (This was the race that got me into nationals, but that was the only chance I ever had to get a gold medal in our conference and I just barely missed it.)

25. Do you have pets?

- No

26. What's your dream pet?

-CAT

27. Any weapon you own?

-I own a Highland smithed 60 inch Scottish Claymore that weighs fifty pounds. (This is not a phallic joke I think swords are awesome.)

28. Any gun you want?

- Not really.

29. What religion are you?

- None

30. If you could hang out with one historical person for a day?

- Walt Disney

31. If you could bring back one dead person for a day?

- My old friend from Highschool who died in a skiing accident his junior year in college. I’d bring him back so he could see all the people who gather every year to honor him during the summer at my highschool.

32. Are you political?

- Politics make me want to hurl.

33. Are you married?

- No

34. Do you have a special sompony?

- No

35. Do you have a crush?

- No

36. Care to explain?

- No

37. Do you consider yourself attractive?

- Can anyone answer this question honestly? You either are too modest or too generous, there’s no balance. (but I guess an answer? I’ve been TOLD I’m attractive.)

38. If you could hang with any living person?

- Very obscure, but there is a 100 year old man that still comes to my gym. Every once in a while I see a few old guys gather (Mind you these men are like 65-70 but this guy is THIRTY YEARS OLDER THAN THEM.) And they ask him about stuff. I’ve heard this 100 year old man tell stories about how his grandpa fought in the CIVIL WAR. So when my brain was done exploding I sat nearby and listened to this guy talk about stories his grandfather used to tell him about stuff that happened in freaking 1861 to 1865. I would LOVE to sit down with this guy for a while and just listen to him talk about his life because he LIVED through a lot of things I learned about in history class.

39. Favorite pony?

- Soarin

40. Any embarrassing secrets?

- I still sleep with a stuffed dog I received for my first birthday.

41. If you have done any art or writing, what are you most proud of?

- I wrote a 300 page fantasy novel for my final project my senior year of college. I think I can write better now than I did then, but I have my own paperback copy of it so it feels kinda awesome.

42. Are you a virgin?

- Nope

43. Craziest thing you've done with no regrets?

(This was removed for personal reasons)

44. Craziest thing you've done that you do regret?

- Belly flopped off a diving board. I don’t care how much you were bet, NEVER DO IT.

45. Do you have a fetish?

- I like buff girls. When I say this I don’t mean like the steroid pumped monsters you see in female body building competitions. Think athlete. I like women who are femininly muscular.

46. Do you regret saying this fetish?

- No because I was an athlete. I like athlete girls. There's something very attractive to me about strong women. Nothing to be ashamed of.

47. Favorite FIM stories?

- honestly couldn’t say, but I will credit LOYALTY as my initial inspiration to write my own Soarindash fics.

48. Favorite quote?

- Success is not final, Failure is not fatal: It’s the courage to continue that counts. –Winston Churchill

49. Have you ever hurt someone just to hurt them?

- Never.

50. Did you answer these questions honestly?

- Yes.

Just figured i'd share :)

Wonderbolts! Go! Go! Go!

The Wonderbolts are the core characters that i like to work with. As a former athlete with lots of experience in training and team camaraderie, i was drawn to them and have used them not only to create my own unique cast of character personalities, but also as a medium to share lessons, hardships, and memories that i've had within the stories i've cast them in. I feel that there are a lot of bronies who haven't experienced the life of an athlete, or know the more casual, bonding side of it. The Wonderbolts have given me a chance to share it with everyone.

This fantastic piece of art belongs to inuhoshi-to-darkpen

I would like to extend a thank you to those who worked on the Wind Project... i shall cherish it always :)

THE TEAM

The Writer: Calm Wind The Editor: Kestrel


All three pieces above done by: Scootafail/Chiweee

(NOTE: Kestrel has only edited TWO of my stories. Flying Sky High and Piercing the Heavens. The rest have not been touched by him, so it's not his fault they are full of errors, it's me and my lack of editing skill before he appeared and made a difference xD)

Post submission edits often caught and brought to attention by: Lucky424

He is also my backup editor when Kestrel is busy.

The motivation?: All of you. Thank you so much for reading. It takes a lot of time and effort to write and nothing is more motivating than having it acknowledged.
