Pony Stories 787

My changeling cosplay at the con went perfectly, nobody mentioned it. Also doubles as ninja costume at anime conventions.

Pony Stories 786 (compact version)

So, my favorite quote from the latest pony episode was Applejack’s line “I’m popular, Twilight. I’m popular and I don’t like it one bit!” Also, Applejack has the easiest problem to solve. Just insist the ‘new family’ do proper farmwork like the rest of the family does.

Pony Stories 785 (compact version) teeny-tiny edition

Saturday! Hopefully a whirlwind of excitement and fun… Okay, whirlwind of excitement would actually be kind of crummy. I’m not a whirlwind of excitement kinda guy. Even if it turns out I like typing ‘whirlwind’ more than I thought I would. Hopefully I have an interesting and social Saturday without it being a whirlwind of activities and excitement.

The Old View by Posh : Yes.

Pony Stories 784 (compact version)

Another hideously brief review-ish reactions while the cool kids (and me, I guess) are at Bronycon. Hopefully the Friday this goes up I’ll have an easy time getting my badge and all that jazz. Still kinda mad that I didn’t manage to get preregistered for the weekend. Really wanted a fancy badge instead of the at-con registration badge. Not that I know for certain they are different, but pretty much every con I’ve been to they have been.

Pony Stories 783 (compact version)

Watched the Maud Pie and Starlight Glimmer episode. It’s one of my favorites from the current season. What with how much I like Maud Pie and was one of the episodes that made me actually like Starlight Glimmer. Fun things I noticed. One, Rarity’s telekinesis was being channeled through her hard hat light. Cool little thing that’s easy to miss. The other, extrapolating how she thinks a certain common gem is rare leads me to believe that she doesn’t have any formal education about gems and uses her gem finding spell when she needs some. So her ideas about how common/rare certain gems are could easily be influenced by if they are resistant or easily found with her personal spell.

Anyway, time for compact reviews! I’ve been finding I have less and less interesting things to say about stories as I absorb more ponyfic. The getting jaded problem. Which means I put off writing my reactions and get a huge backlog. I want to go to Bronycon with a clear slate. So, going to be giving one-word comments!
