Week 334 Wrap Up


I bet you weren't expecting that to be the first statement in this blog entry. But sometimes a writer has just got to be random. Or perhaps I've simply spent too much time around Discord as of late. He may not be a villain anymore, but that doesn't make him any less chaotic.

But time grows short. Literally so; I'm technically past the deadline now. So I shall likewise cut this entry short and allow you into the Gallery. Writing has been the theme of this week, even if I've done relatively little of it here. But that is balanced out by the writing of others. So feel free to wander in, and see what has been written by ponies who are better at it than I often am.

Week 333 Wrap Up

Ponies are a remarkably diverse species. First, you've got the three major variations: earth ponies, pegasi, and unicorns. And then you add in the rarer variants, such as alicorns, crystal ponies, and batponies. And all of these come in a riotous variety of color schemes and body shapes.

But even then, ponies are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this world's diversity of sentient life. Zebras, buffalo, griffons, and donkeys rub shoulders with ponies on a regular basis. Yaks, changelings, and diamond dogs can bring friendship or trouble, depending on the whims of the individual or group being dealt with. And then there are the large and potent species, such as dragons and sphinxes, which thankfully are typically encountered alone, given they're often powerful enough to overcome even groups of ponies.

And that still isn't all of them! As you can see, Equestria plays host to an incredible variety of sentient species. So be careful what you say around an unfamiliar life form. It may very well respond to you... or tell someone else what you said.

Week 332 Wrap Up

Darkness creeps across the land,
The midnight hour is close at hand,
Creatures crawl in search of blood,
To terrorize your neighborhood.
And though you fight to stay alive,
Your body starts to shiver.
For no mere mortal can survive,
The evil of the Thriller!

It's my favorite time of year again. That time of year when the darkness is both feared and celebrated in equal measure, though that may not hold true for some individuals. A time for little foals in ghoulish garb to wander the town at night seeking candy from the townsfolk, all the while telling spooky stories of the ghosts of Equestria's past.

So let us open the doors to the Gallery this dark evening, and see what dark forms lurk in this week's creations.

Week 331 Wrap Up

It's that time of the week again! And this week, we've been celebrating the greatest of all super-spies! You know who it is, that suave and sophisticated stallion who seems to get all the mares. The one with all the high tech spy gadgets hidden inside ordinary items, like quills and sofas. The one who loves his cider shaken, not stirred. The one and only...

Wait, bonds of friendship? That's the theme, not spies? Oops. Well, that would explain the lack of actual pictures of him in the gallery. I must admit that is a better explanation than 'everypony drew him in such impressive disguises that he looks like a completely different pony in every picture'. But at any rate, it is time to open up the Gallery to you all, including any spies that might be in your midst. Because I wouldn't be able to tell anyways.

Week 330 Wrap Up

When the moon hits your eye,
Like a big pizza pie,
That's amore!

You know, that song never really made sense to me. Seriously, what does pizza have to do with eels?

Well anyways, I hope you all like pie, because that has been the theme for this week. Apple pies, pumpkin pies, blueberry pies, pizza pies, and yes, Pinkie Pies. Especially Pinkie Pies. So many Pinkie Pies; it's like somepony unsealed the Mirror Pond or something. You know, somepony should introduce Marble Pie to the Mirror Pond. There could never be too many Marble Pies.

But I'm getting off track here. The time has come to open up the Gallery. And as an added bonus, we've got some special edible treats for you to enjoy in addition to the artwork. What kind of treats, you ask?

Well, cake of course!

Week 329 Wrap Up

Ah, relaxing. Sometimes you just gotta take a load off, especially after a tiring day at work. Life just wouldn't be bearable without time to rest. Time to give your weary bones a break. Time to...

Bleh, I fear I'm about to fall asleep, so let's get the Gallery open before that happens. Hopefully the strongly sedate vibes from this week's creations won't put you to sleep as well. Unless you want to fall asleep, in which case they hopefully will.

Week 328 Wrap Up

Hello, and welcome again to the Gallery. I had planned on setting up an obstacle course in the entryway, for our visitors to travers in order to reach the displays, but my co-managers nixed the idea. Apparently, they felt it was too much of a risk to our visitors, though I disagree with that myself. Seriously, it was just a little pit trap; the nurses would've fixed the fallen up right fast!

But I ingest... err, digress. I may or may not be hungry, but that's an obstacle I'll need to overcome with later. Right now, it's time to properly open the Gallery to you all! And don't worry, I did close off that pit trap just inside the entrance... I think. Being hungry makes it difficult to remember things.
