The call of badass Screwball themed brony music has summoned me from my pit of productivity! (that and it’s literally gunna take 3 hours to finish rendering this shot) Greetings my Brony Brethren!

By the way, this doesn’t look dirty does it?

At least… not overtly?

No… no, of course not!

EDIT: Page get? OK! Well, I just got the iPhone app for the MLP game… and it seems easy at first. I haven’t spent ANY of those gems yet (Spike keeps asking me to feed him a gem). So far, I got only Pinkie Pie to come back… about how long does it take to bring them all back?
Also, just got my Vinyl box! Thanks again, DeadParrot!

Just noticed that Beating a Dead Horse is now a trending meme…

…Also Realized that such an Idiom when used in Equestria is unusually Violent and sociopath-ic sounding.

I mean, Imagine the reactions ponies would have at the saying “No point beating a Dead Horse.”

It would be akin to saying “No point in beating up the corpse of your Neighbor you disliked. He’s already Dead.”

Any pony that heard that phrase would be mildly disturbed. And rightfully so… And they would mark any pony who used that phrase as having a dark sense of humor.

I’d kinda like to hear that phrase used in the show actually. Probably because I have a pretty dark sense of humor.

Although the only ponies I can think of that would say something like that are the hospital staff from “Read It and Weep” because, as someone who has several family members who are/were in the medical field, doctors tend to have really dark senses of humor.

Holy shit, now that you put it that way…

How about “beating a dead parasprite”? Yeah, that works. Kinda.


@Equestria Girls: Yeah, I’ll probably see it.

I’m terrified about how it will turn out. I don’t know if I will be able to take 90 minutes of that.

They actually have said “beating a dead horse” in MLP. It was Twilight that said it. I’m not quite sure what episode it was said in (I wanna say Suited for Success) and what the context was or anything, and I can’t seem to find a clip, but mark my words, it happened!

@Gigatoast
Well, it’s definitely not the most suggestive Screwball image I’ve seen.


I’d say you’re fine.


@Crimson
Actually, I don’t think the entire phrase has ever been said.
Twilight did say “You’re beating a dead… tree” in Applebuck Season as a clear reference to ‘beating a dead horse’ though.
You’re probably thinking of the “Never look a gift horse in the mouth line” from the letter in Suited for Success that, while not exactly the same, is a similarly creepy idiom for a horse-based society to use.

@Rinsankajugin

I think I might be one of the qualified people to give critique regarding art. I’ll link your picture on this page too, just for the sake of clarity.




Okay, let’s start, shall we.

First of all, I have to ask you if you use any tutorials and references for help? Try to draw from real life, photographs (models, poses, adult entertainment etc.). I also recomment using tutorials. I was stupid enough not to do so when I started, and now my pictures are inherently flawed.


But enough about general advice, let’s get to the picture.

Now I don’t draw using a JoJo esque style myself, and I have only read the first two parts, before “Stardust Crusaders” kinda killed it for me, so I’m not an expert when it comes to the particular style. But I know that there is that semi realistic and glamouristic effect to the characters, while still having the manga like elements.

From what I can see, I can say that you have pretty wobbly lines. I think that usually comes with a drawing pad, and it’s easier to avoid it by drawing by hand. But I recommend that you attempt to draw using quick long strokes, instead of slowly following the lines carefully anyway, especially with the hair. Never draw hair slowly. It needs to flow, and you can achieve that by using long strokes.

For example, the face and hair looks really forced, while the lines along the clothing and body shape are smoother and more pleasing to look at.

As for the face, have you tried using guidelines to help you place everything? This does not represent the JoJo style, but is a good simpe guide anyway. You can also look for good quides on YouTube.

For example, her nose and mouth should be on the same line as her chin, but it looks like her mouth leans slightly off that line, as does her nose. Her eyes have the same wobbly thing doing on, so I suggest those quick and smooth lines there too. They’re also a bit too different in size.

You should be careful with the lips and the size of the nose when trying to draw beautiful women, since you should avoid drawing too many lines. There’s actually a very simple rule that you can think of when drawing girls. “More Detail = Less Cute”

As for the eye placement, I’d say that’s pretty good already, since they’re approximately on the same line with her ears.

As for the rest of the anatomy, I can’t really go into much detail, since it’s really not my strong suite, but I can say that I like the hand and fingers holding the hat, even though they are partially covered up by the hat. I know those are really difficult to draw, and you got them right pretty well. As for the arm itself, it seems a bit odd with the foreshortening and all that, but I can’t really think of a way to make it better. Try to look into lengths from shoulder to elbow, and elbow to wrist. use body as a length measurement. For example, elbow is approximately at the same height as the belly button, and hands reach halfway the thighs.

Here’s a simple size tutorial to help you out.


That’s all I can do for you now.

Just keep practicing, and use a lot of references and tutorials to help you get better.


And just so it doesn’t go completely off topic, here’s the best pony.




Oh, and nice to see you still hang around the forums too Giga.

Well, I think those idioms are “horseshit!” (see what I did there?)
A very creepy one to use there would “I’m so hungry, I could eat a horse!”
What other horse idioms are there… “Hold your horses,” “Charley horse,” and “Dark horse.” I consider myself a dark horse.

@Muumi: Thanks for the help. I should really ease up when drawing, and I knew something was up with her arms, especially considering Araki’s current style is more slender. Time to overhaul the lines before I go on to coloring an shading!

Oh, and I also recommend Part 7: Steel Ball Run, since it’s an alternate universe Phantom Blood.

@Deadparrot:
Yeah, I figured that’s what I was mixing up. I knew Twilight said “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth” as the lesson for that episode, but for some reason I have the feeling that she said “Beating a dead horse” in an episode I saw recently, and Suited for Success is the one I saw most recently.

Bah, whatever, I’m just gonna forget it now

@20% Cooler: Damn, looks like Muumi beat me to the art critique. Well, I guess I’ll add a few things that he left unsaid.

I will reinforce what he said in that you should try to draw your lines in longer, swifter motions rather than in short, slow strokes (especially with hair). This is a little tricky to get comfortable with, but you’ll get it eventually. Hell, I still have a little trouble with it sometimes. Also, remember that guidelines are your best friend.

As for your body proportions, I would say that the head and torso are pretty spot on. The only thing I would change is that weird angle that the arm holding the hat is in. Perspective is tricky, but looking at enough references (or hell, even just looking at yourself in the mirror) will do wonders in teaching you how to do it just right. From what I can say about it now, I think making a small change like putting the elbow up a little higher will make it look more natural.

Thanks to you too, Crimson! While I’m fixing up the lineart, I found this funny Jojo/MLP comic that probably only makes sense if you’ve read Phantom Blood.

Well, I don’t think that’s entirely true, Blue Screen. I think a lot of people are concerned about EQG despite the fact that, as far as we know, it will have nothing to do with the show’s canon because they fear that Hasbro will start getting a little crazier about what they are willing to force into the actual show and the license, and EQG is just the first step.

That’s just my speculation/hypothesis, though. As I have said, EQG does not concern me very much.

I couldn’t see Equestria Girls really making that much of a difference on the franchise itself. Think about it: if it’s getting made for the bronies, it’s gonna flop because the fandom is taking it as a giant kick to the shin. If they’re making it for the 6 year old girls as an attempt to boost the sales of the toys and crap, it’ll flop because as far as I know it’s only going to a few theaters and it probably isn’t gonna get marketed much.

@20% Cooler:
That looks much better. Lines are smoother, eyes, nose, and mouth are in the right place, and the arm looks much more natural. I’m sure you can see the difference yourself, this was a pretty good improvement.

Are you planning on coloring this later?

Gah, work has been so crazy all week that I’ve been losing track of time.
It still hasn’t fully sunk in that Equestria LA starts tomorrow morning!

WOO!
Should be fun, especially because they also have Cathy Weseluck (Spike/Mayor) and Tabitha St. Germaine (Rarity/Luna) coming this time!

Oh, and whatever this is, too:

If the original tease didn’t get my attention, the fact that they will apparently not be allowing recording certainly did.
I’m really wondering what this ‘all-new surprise’ is going to be!
I’ll be sure to report back to you guys when I can (though I suspect that it will be up on EQD and such pretty much immediately after… whatever it is happens).

That feel of being a 21 year old man who only has to worry about what his girlfriend thinks about him and not his parents or friends feels good man…..But then the other feel sinks and completely undoes the previous feel when you realize you live in Illinois…..a million miles away from the nearest con……Can we please get an EquestriaChitown? Hopefully NOT in the south side though? People get shot over there for sitting in a car and manage to get away with it EVERY. TIME. Imagine what would happen if these people found out about a brony convention………..maybe THAT’S why we won’t have any bronycons out here, fucking people have to ruin Illinois Bronies fun times!

Would you not be able to get to a con on your own or round up a few friends to go with you? I may be out of the loop on what is normal con traveling seeing as the only cons I go to are ones I can easily get to through train and other public transit. Or maybe the cons you’re interested in only allow you to buy a ticket without parental consent at 18+? I wouldn’t know that either, seeing as the (non-brony) cons I’ve gone to allow you to purchase a ticket by yourself if you’re 13 or older.

To anyone going to EQLA, have fun!

@Crimson: Oh, but of course. In Jojo fashion, the coloring will be essentric and very techni-. I’ve already posted Jojo-esque versions of Soos, Karkat and Strong Bad over at the Art Gallery thread. They’re near the bottom of page 10. After I’m done with Applejack, I’ll be going on to Jimmy the Robot from the Aquabats.

By now, you’d see that I’m a big ass Brojo, but I’m also a Brony so let’s bring this back to pony. Will there be any San Antonian theaters that will hold Equestria Girls? I do legitimately want to see this movie, even if everyone else is iffy about it.

Don’t know, but didn’t the Bronycon Doc go to Europe for a con or something? Or did they just go there to interview European bronies?

That being said, like I said living in Illinois and not being able to travel due to me having to live an…..adult life.

Hey DeadParrot, I got your package. I’m a little disappointed you didn’t write anything creepy on the box, but my parents still had alot of questions. Probably because I didn’t tell them about it. They were worried that I gave you my credit card number or something, but I just told them “Nope. He gave it to me for free. He’s just a really nice guy.” It was awkward, and now my dad is worried about me. Anyway, thanks again. I feel really lucky to know you.

My package arrived at my house today (of course, I won’t be back for another week, but that’s fine; I’d rather have there for sure than have perhaps missed it when I went home next week). All that my mom asked was “Is this the package you were expecting?”

My parents are incredibly chill.

May 11, 2013 at 03:19AM EDT

Woo, long day…
Catch up time first:


@Fifths
Feel better soon, man.
Being sick sucks…
HERE’S YOUR DAMN SOUP!

(Thank you to everyone who thought better than making a Scootaloo joke at the ‘chicken soup’ request. Truly, you are the greatest of men/women.)


@European Cons
As a matter of fact, there are quite a few cons out there for you bronies across the Atlantic.
Crystal Fair in Finland
Galacon in Germany
BUCK in England
Brony Days in France
(And yes, the documentary did have some coverage of the first years of both BUCK and Galacon.)

And this is the list of ALL cons that EQD has compiled!
They aren’t exactly everywhere but there really are a startling number of them.


@Disturbed
I figured that you’d have enough trouble explaining why a rainbow-colored pony suddenly showed up on your doorstep that you deserved a break.
… or i just forgot.
Anyway, enjoy!


@Twilit
Good to know that it arrived safely even if you can’t quite see it for yourself yet.

Did your parents actually open it?
Not that your parents wouldn’t be chill in either case, but a brown cardboard box doesn’t really give too much cause for worry.
What will their reactions be when they see what lies within?
MWAHAHAHAHA!


And now to EQLA, Day 1:

As the resident Plush Master, I of course had to bring some friends along so for the first day I choose probably my oldest and favorite little set: the Showstopper CMCs.
The choice was also partially due to the fact that there was a panel scheduled for the My Little Rockband mod that is in the works and I thought the stage could use some decoration. =)

(By the way, should anyone come across the video of that panel if/when it finds its way online and wonder why I and the other drummers all sucked out loud, I feel I must clarify that he drum setup sucked. One pad didn’t work at all and the whole thing kept sliding all over the place. Shut up, I am not just making excuses. Shut up.)

(It really was pretty bad, though.)


Moving on:
I knew that I said I would try to take pictures but I have discovered that I am really not much of a photographer.
I had my camera in my hand a majority of the time, but the compulsion to actually use it came up much more rarely than it probably should have.
I think you might be able to guess what
CAUGHT
MY
ATTENTION
I’ll try to remember to do a little more ‘all-purpose’ photography tomorrow…


The real highlight of these cons for me has always been the VA panels simply because of the energy and enthusiasm that is always part of them.
Today was no different.
All of them (Brenda Crichlow, Cathy Weseluck, Nicole Oliver, Andrea Libman, and Michelle Creber) were having a bunch of fun and continuously cracking jokes and being silly, but I think most people would say that Nicole Oliver really stole the show.
For whatever reason, she brought up and latched onto the concept of Celestia and Discord dating and (obviously) the crowd completely ate that up!
As an example, one question was ‘What would your character’s reaction be if Discord became evil again?’ to which Oliver responded, ‘Disappointed… and a little turned on?’
Another person came up to the microphone dressed as Discord but with no shirt on.
Nicole muttered a few odd remarks before flamboyantly pushing her microphone away from her in an ’I’m not touching that one’ kind of way.
Mixed in there were a few strong hints that we will likely be seeing some Celestia/Discord interaction in season four, but even on its own, the whole thing was hilarious.
I would definitely encourage people to watch it when the recording gets posted.


There were also a number of ominous hints dropped about whatever the ‘surprise’ will be tomorrow.
Nothing specific, but a couple ‘Make sure to come by tomorrow’s and a strong re-emphasis on the ‘absolutely no recording allowed’ rule really sets the stage for something crazy.
More on that later, I guess.


Overall, fun day one.
On to day two!

Make sure you know where the fire exits are. You know how these cons are when it comes to fires.

The rumor mill over what the “surprise” is is pumping out so many cheap textiles, they’re gonna get fined by the WTO. The going theory is it has something to do with Equestria Girls, and the “no livestream” ban is important enough that, if violated, Hasbro’s jimmies would be substantially rustled.

Also, why have I heard absolutely nothing about EQLA? No EQD post. No Derpy Hooves News post. It’s like they’re all in cahoots with each other to cover up whatever this surprise is. It’s a conspiracy I tells ya. Next thing you know, the mods will start censoring posts and images that try to reveal the secrets of EQLA. Users will mysteriously disappear. The site will go down for mainta--oh crap puts on tinfoil hat

’cause I’m Advance, yes I’m the real Vance
All you other Advances don’t have any chances
So won’t the real Advance please stand up, please stand up, please stand up?

Oh, you hate it when we leave out the x’s, TSG?
Well not me, so squee you and squee CrazySea.
You think I’d dream ‘bout joining your streams?
Half of you get distracted from the ponies, let alone the memes.
“But Vance, give it a chance! We want you to appear!”
Why? If it ‘aint filled with Rarity then I don’t care!
You’ll probably sit me down next to SkymanKez.
Dang, Timothy the Enchanter better switch me chairs
So I can hear Millennial Dan and Crimson Locks
Fighting ‘bout who should get Parrot’s last Fluttershy box
Then who should arrive but that weirdo named Jimmy
“I ship human Applejack and Jeff the killer.” Teehee
Then there’s Markhaox that suffers from MPD
It’s Serious Business, that guy’s a Disturbed Brony! [AHHH]
I’ve had enough of all these OC’s, all they do is annoy me
Though I don’t mind the ones drawn by Muumi.
And there’s a million of us just like me
Who lust like me, who just want to discuss pony
Post Rarity, change their names to match with me
It just might be the next best thing, but not quite me!

[Chorus]

I’m like Verbose to listen to, ‘cause I’m only giving you
Things to over-analyse with Twins inside a chat room.
The only difference is I got control to say it in front of y’all
Without having to make it sound Sweet and Delicious at all.
I just go on and submit it
I’m semi-pro, like Twilit JA I just spit it
20% better than other posters out can
I’m full of discussion as Protege is full of headcanon.
It’s shaking; if I was gone it would be devastating
You’d feel like Affluence in Fifth’s basement animating.
Grating his teeth and stating that he’s hating simply waiting
For some VA’s but he ate his whole plate of medication.
And every single person’s an Advancer lurking
He could be working at the bakery, spitting on the cake that’s free. [HACH]
Or in the gallery with Blue Yoshi
Typing “I don’t give a buck!”
Putting Alex down, chatting Vino up.
So will the real Advance please stand up?
Get dragonballs from Yi to lift his ban up?
And be proud to be rustling twice as hard as Bruno
And one more time, loud as you can, how does it go?

[Chorus x2]

Haha… guess there’s an Advancer in all of us.
Squee it. Let’s all stand up.

Well, my song is done. I tried to include as many users as I could this time around, but there’s no guarantee I got everyone, so I apologise to anyone I left out. In case you didn’t find the super sexy awesome secret hint in my last post, the song is a parody of The Real Slim Shady, and it’s based around that time Advance got a cult after he was banned. Anyway, enjoy!
(Spoiler’d due to length. If you want to sing along, instrumental is here)

[RandomMan]
May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?
Will the real Advance please stand up?
I repeat, will the real Advance please stand up?
We’re gonna have a problem here…

[Advance]
Y’all act like you’ve never seen a saucy picture before
Jaws all on the floor like Lez, like Vazquez burst in the door
And started causing a mess and getting in fights
‘bout rules of the site, getting banned and removed overnight [AHH]
It’s the deathly hasbr… “Ah, wait, no way, you’re kidding.
He didn’t just bring up that again, did he?
And DeadParrot said… nothing you idiots!
DeadParrot’s DEAD. He was stuffed and sold to Stunthead. [HAHA]
Caro’s had a romance with Advance
Shiggy diggy diggy
“Check this guy, the silly-pants
Look at this man, browsing around posting the, you know, plots
Shipping the you-know-who (He is quite cute though…)”
Yeah a few of my pics may seem a bit obtuse
But it’s no worse than what’s going on with Caro and Bulletproof.
Sometimes I wanna get on the forums and just let loose, but can’t
But Swaggyballs can still report admin abuse.
I’m posting all my ships. I’m posting all my ships.
And maybe Kewln00b’ll make a comment about kiss.
And about this time is when you should expect a comment from Fifths
‘bout the state of modern music and how it makes him pissed.
My pics aren’t gonna scare young users away
I mean we’ve still got Lone K.
They have all been to 4chan haven’t they?
Friends are all that we make… well, some of us fake
And only want to bake each other into cupcakes. [NOM]
But we really don’t want you hanging here if you can’t cope
With the idea that Blue Screen and Phoenix can now elope EWWW
But if you need your pony fix we have the antidote
Throw up your fedoras, yo, sing it now with Windigo!

[Chorus]
I’m Advance, yes I’m the real Vance
All you other Advances don’t have any chances
So won’t the real Advance please stand up, please stand up, please stand up?
’cause I’m Advance, yes I’m the real Vance

I think if you forgot anyone I think they deserve the right to be temporarily butthurt considering….you got me in there….I mean I’m a pretty forgettable guy so….lol. Good parody though, used to listen to the song all the time when I was younger so I was able to hum it along with the tune in my head, was a quite entertaining time.

@EQLA, Day 2
Just skipping straight to the ‘main event,’ I really had no idea that the internet was apparently imploding in the lead-up to this ‘surprise’ and then continued imploding when it turned out that it wasn’t what they had thought.
All that was ever said about the event was that it would be a ‘special treat’ for the attendees and that no recording would be allowed.
That’s it.
I, like most other people it seems, were kicking around the idea that it could be a Season 4 or Equestira Girls reveal of some kind, but those unable to attend seem to have missed the part where those potentialities were complete speculation.
Then a bunch of people from /mlp/ and Purple Tinker (who are typically mortal enemies I might add) all decided, based on no information, that this was all some elaborate screw-job that the con staff was pulling and so they put out plans and requests for people to directly subvert to rules.

I am far more disappointed in this reaction than I am with anyone related to the actual event itself.
Pretty sure that we’ve had an episode or two based around the concept of ‘not jumping to conclusions,’ haven’t we?


What actually happened:
Nicole Oliver actually called everyone to attention at the beginning in order to fully explain the situation.
Basically, the VAs and a couple of the higher-ups in the con staff came up with a cool idea that they thought people would get a kick out of: An abridged, in-character reading of some select Star Wars scenes.
Unfortunately, due to the various contracts, trademarks, and copyrights involved (recall that Star Wars is now owned by the infamously sue-happy Disney), the only way that they would be allowed to do it was if recording was banned.
At no point and in no way was the ban meant to ‘punish’ or ‘exclude’ the rest of the fandom.
It essentially came down to just the opposite: the VAs wanted to do something fun and memorable and they did just that to the full extent of what they could legally get away with.
Nicole directly said that their little gift was in fact a pretty significant risk for them since, if they were discovered to have allowed unauthorized recording, any or all of them could have easily been fired and/or sued.


The reading itself was a lot of fun.
I should note that through Nicole’s explanation of the rules she never directly said what they would be doing so everyone was still in the dark until the opening narration began.

Characters:
Leia = Rarity
Pinkie = Vader
Luna = C3P0
Spike = Luke
Zecora = Kenobi
Fluttershy = Han (with Angel as Chewie)
Apple Bloom = Yoda
Celestia = Narrator

The script was obviously heavily abridged since they only had about 20 – 30 minutes, but there were a lot of great lines.
Tabitha continues to impress and Rarity is perfect as Leia.
“Aren’t you a little short to be a stormtrooper?” in Rarity’s accent: Hilarious!

The other big highlight was Fluttershy as Han because it basically marked the return of FlutterBitch.
Lines like “And who’s gonna fly it, kid? You?” were hilariously cruel to hear in Fluttershy’s typically kind voice.
Add to that Andrea’s hyper-cute ‘pew pew pew’ sound effects whenever a laser battle occurred.

The whole thing was great fun and I only wish it had been able to go on longer and with more scenes.
Certainly never going to think about complaining because it was awesome!


Other con stuff:
I told a quick story about Nicole Oliver playing around with a sexy Discord cosplayer yesterday which she reprised again today.
Figured some of you might like to see what had Celestia herself all flustered.


One of the items in the charity auction is pretty fun.

Yep, that’s a gravy boat signed by everybody’s favorite gravy boat!


Overall, another very fun day!
(Feel free to ask questions if you guys have them. I’m usually better at responding to specific statements than trying to remember and summarize an entire day on my own.)

Okay guys… Discussion Topic… Maybe…

Although some have theorized that Pegasi and Unicorn traits are Recessive based on the cakes… has anyone thought about how each set of genetics would fit together if Ponies had Co-dominant Genetics?

At first guess, you can suspect that the impure child of Pegasi or Unicorns would simply have weaker Wings or Magic… And Earth Ponies are another matter entirely… So that’s not a matter worth pursuing.

But what about the remaining species combinations be like?

What would a Half-Bat Pony, Half Pegasi look like?

What would a Half Changeling, Half… Anything?… Look like?

What would A Half Dragon, Half Pony Look like? I’ve seen rare pictures, but not many. And mostly as Spike/Rarity Shipping.

What would a Half Pony, Half Gryphon look like? Wait, that would just be a Hypogryph… What would those look like?

What would a Half Sea-Pony/Mermare, Half land dwelling Pony look like?

What would a Half Cow, Half Pony look like? (I don’t actually want to know, I’m just finishing the list.)

…Mules are already Half Pony… Specifically Half Donkey, Half Pony…

What would a Half Diamond Dog, Half Pony look like?

What would a Half Buffalo, Half Pony look like?

I think that’s all the Major combinations… Although for most of them there’s variant questions for specifically having them mix with each of the three major pony kinds. (Earth, Unicorn, Pegasus). As well as more Esoteric Questions like Half Gryphon, Half Dragon…

Ouch… Trying to imagine a Half Grypon, Half Dragon Hurts.

Anyone who wants to know what a Half Manticore, Half Pony would Look like… Just imagine the Scorpio Pony… But with Leathery Wings… Which I’ve already drawn a few times.

Someone finally found a way to torment me in a good manner…

Well done… Excellent lyrics, and I had the tune, like all other Slim Shady tunes, stuck in my head. Glad you actually considered me a part of this group… that truly means a lot.

Oh God, you’ve managed to list four of my fanfics…


1. Half-Changeling, half-pony… story on how a “mistake” from the hive is abandoned and eventually ends up in Los Pegasus.
2. Half-dragon, half-pony… no, before you even say “Spike and Rarity,” not Spike OR Rarity. The offspring of the couple in the story are ponies with scales instead of fur.
3. Half-mermare, half-pony… Mermare was the EXACT term I used in my story, whether they were mares or not. Long story short, offspring was a unicorn (since both the mermare and land dweller were unicorns, in a sense)
4. Not necessarily offspring, but I also did a centaur as well. Everyone was freaked out at him… yadda yadda yadda… toleration lesson.


Seriously, FOUR of my fanfics! I’m disgusting…
