Week 325 Wrap Up

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, on a dark... wait, didn't I do this two weeks ago?

*Ahem.* In the begging, there was darkness. Then Celestia said, "Let there be light!" Err, wait. Didn't the unicorn tribes control the sun before Celestia first appeared? She may raise the sun, but she didn't actually create it or anything. Hmm...

In A.C. 2101, war was begi- actually, let's not reference that. 'Legendarily bad' technically does qualify as 'Legendary', but it's still bad.

Bleh. Writing a legend isn't at all easy. Maybe I should just stick with the classic legendary tales instead of trying to invent one. In the mean time, let's see what other creators have created this week. Perhaps they've had better results than I have.

Week 324 Wrap Up

"You are all individuals!"
Yes, we are all individuals!
I'm not...


*facehoof* Oh dear, there's one in every crowd. Somepony who has to disagree with the masses, not for any actual preference or principle, but just for the sake of being different. Being a contrarian really isn't any better than being a conformist when either is done just for the sake of it.

But you may not agree with me on that. And much like being a lumberjack, that is okay. After all, we really are all individuals, and each of us has our own unique set of ideas, emotions, and desires. The trick is to be considerate of each other's ideas, even if we don't agree with them.

But I think that's enough prattling for one day. Instead, I shall now direct you to this week's Gallery, featuring a collection of ponies who may or may not be following the above advice.

Week 323 Wrap Up

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, on a dark and stormy night, there was a Great Artist's Lodge that was co-ruled by a unicorn mare and a mechanical pony. The moon-marked mare was wise and elegant, and well liked by the Lodge members. The mechanical pony was intelligent and regal, and likewise well-respected, but still grew jealous of the mare. Thus, the scene was set for rebellion and conflict.

The rebels gathered up their forces, and led them into battle with the loyalists. Battlecries were screamed, lines were drawn, brother fought brother, passes were cut off, kings were castled, bellies were rubbed, splines were reticulated... whatever that means. *Ahem.* But then, the mare fell to darkness, and had to be banished by her own sister, to be magically sealed away within the moon itself for a thousand years! Uhh, wait... I think I'm getting my lunar mares mixed up. Let's try this again.

But in the end, the lunar unicorn prevailed and peace once again fell across the land! Even the great machine pony returned to the fold, continuing to co-rule as he had done before the war. The end!

Week 322 Wrap Up

Hup, two, three, four,
Dunno how to count no more...


Wait, does that even fit the theme? I mean, that is an odd couple of lines, but I'm pretty sure that's not the sort of 'odd couple' they want here. I'm pretty sure they wanted something more romantically inclined. Well, unless 'they' happen to be goblins, in which case the above lines might actually work.

But I digress. I'm sure you are all more interested in this week's Gallery than you are in my musings about a fantasy race's preferences. So let us instead focus on the reality of earth ponies, pegasi, and unicorns instead! And zebras, and gryphons, and dragons, and minotaurs, and all the other species that live here in Equestria and beyond! There's a lot of odd couples to be found within this mix, after all.

Week 321 Wrap Up

Let's see... jerseys, face paint, giant foam fingers, really loud air horns, those weird helmets that hold drinks... Seems like that's everything needed to watch the big buckball game as a proper fan. At least, that's what Lyra says. Personally, I think this amount of stuff is only carried around by the most fanatical of fans, with the average fan bringing only some of these things, if anything at all.

But for those of you who are not attending the game, our newest gallery exhibit will be open shortly. And it will be full of fans and fanatics as well, partially because that is the theme of this week's exhibit. So fans on the walls being stared at by fans in the halls. And for those who wish to join in on the staring, the Gallery is now open!

Hmm. Perhaps I should bring some earplugs too, because those really loud air horns truly are really loud.

Week 320 Wrap Up

As the old saying goes, "If your family tree doesn't fork, you're probably a Redneck." Wait, no. That's not an old saying, it's just some comedian's joke. And one that you should not tell around the Hooffields or the McColts. Not because they'd be insulted, mind you, but because those two families have been known to argue about which family laughs harder at it. Those two families may not be feuding anymore, but there's still a fair bit of competitiveness between them.

But families aren't just about jokes and feuds. They're also about love and support and arguing with sibling and sitting in the corner when you've done something bad. But mostly love and support. But enough rambling, it's time to check out this week's exhibit!

Week 319 Wrap Up

Roses are red, violets are purple.
Sugar is sweet, and so is maple surple.


Wait, "maple surple"? Is that even a word? Sounds like something a little animated maniac would say.

But I digress. I was reading this flower poem because this week is all about those who grow the flowers: gardeners! And because I couldn't find a gardener poem on short notice. I even asked those three mares that everypony calls The Flower Fillies, but they were busy dealing with a massive caterpillar infestation at the time. And by 'dealing with', I mean shouting 'The Horror' repeatedly.

But I digress. Again. The time has come to open up the Gallery, so I shall say no more for this evening. Enjoy!
