Week 309 Wrap Up

Well, it's that time again. I don't want to overdo it with the speeches tonight, so I'm just gonna open up the Gallery right here and now. Enjoy!

Hmm. Actually, I think that's going to far in the other direction; one can overdo it on keeping things short too. Balance is not always an easy thing to find, but it is a good thing to strive fore nonetheless.

At any rate, now would be the right time to bring this to a close, I think. So feel free to wander the Gallery, and take a gander at all the ponies who are overdoing it in some act or another. Just don't overdo the gandering; you don't want to strain your eyes, after all.

Week 308 Wrap Up

Growing older is a normal part of life, and a mandatory one at that. Well, effectively mandatory. While it is technically true that powerful magic can reverse the aging process, it is rare indeed for a pony to be able to handle such powers. As such, aging remains inevitable for all but a very rare few.

However, though growing old may be mandatory, growing up is optional! But even as many ponies hold on to elements of their foalhood, their ever-growing collection of experiences will add up to a steady growth of wisdom and maturity. So let's open up the Gallery this evening, and see the newest creations of those who continue to grow as artists!

Week 307 Wrap Up

Ponyville is a dangerous place. Giant star bears, rampaging dragons, and demonic centaurs can all cause considerable damage to the town's infrastructure. Not to mention the various powerful unicorns living here that don't always have control over their magic. Needless to say the local construction crews have their hooves full keeping the town from steadily transforming into a field of collapsed buildings, and they've become quite the experts in their field.

But even the most experienced of builders doesn't know everything there is to know about construction, so you gotta make sure you get the right ponies for the job you need done. And having such experts working on your project will make the process much easier, and greatly increase the chances of success!

In that spirit, tonight's gallery is focused on these veteran workers. For such expertise deserves to be celebrated!

Week 306 Wrap Up

Is... Is it over? Is it safe to come out now? Ah, good, good! A pair of foalish ponies had led a hydra into the center of town for some reason. It apparently was those same two who led that giant bear into Ponyville a few years ago; evidently somepony told them about kites and... somehow... that led them to believe that they should lead things into Ponyville. Thankfully, Twilight and her friends were able to handle this problem. Indeed, it's a good thing those mares are here to take care of such situations, given how dangerous it has been over the past several years.

And thankfully the hydra didn't trample the Gallery. Many ponies have been talking about kites as of late, and the local artists have been following suit with their creations. So in honor of kites that don't involve gigantic monsters, I now open the Gallery to you all!

Week 305 Wrap Up

Passion! It drives many a pony to do the things they do. Painters, musicians, writers, and other artistic types often have a lot of passion for their work, and use that to drive their creativity. And of course, such passion isn't limited to artistic pursuits. Many craftsponies are also passionate about their jobs, producing items of high quality for discerning buyers.

And that is what we are celebrating in this week's gallery, passionate ponies and the high emotions passion can bring. So without further ado, allow me to open up the gallery for you!

Week 304 Wrap Up

"Try or try not; there is no do." That's what my mentor always said... I think. Something like that, at least.

But yes, Mentors and their Students are the theme for this week. It's been a celebration of what we can teach to, and learn from, each other. After all, learning isn't limited to formal school settings. Friends often learn from each other, both through direct training and simply through teaching by example.

And should you take the role of mentor yourself, your student will hopefully not develop a fascination with teacups.

Week 303 Wrap Up

Alright, the Dark Lord's forces are arraying themselves upon the northern hills. The time has come to meet their advance, and take the battle to them! Apple Splitter, collect your archers and lead them to the eastern hills. That will give you a good view of the battleground, and allow your bow-wielding forces to fire their arrows with near-impunity. Sir Iron Shield, your heavy soldiers will line up at the base of those same hills. The Dark Lord will undoubtedly recognize the danger that archers on the high ground pose to his forces, and will seek to uproot them as quickly as possible. It'll be your job to prevent that from happening.

As for you, Lord Pommel, your forces will assemble in the central field and charge the Dark Lord's forces. Now, make sure you wait for the right moment! You need to wait for the enemy to come down off the northern hills first; otherwise you'll be charging uphill towards them. And I'm sure you remember what happened when General Pickett Fence did that in the Hooffield-McColt skirmish of '58. That's an example of strategy that you definitely don't want to follow! And finally, Iron Wind, you'll hold back at first, then charge into the enemy's flanks once they're engaged with Lord Pommel and Sir Iron Shield. The full force of your pegasus knights slamming into their side should be enough to break their resolve and win the day for us.

For Equestria!
