Oh, this is the creature that doesn’t exist.
They didn’t know that, and in any case
Its flank, its bearing, its neck,
The calm gaze of its mild eyes,
They have loved.
In fact, it never was. But since they loved it,
A pure animal came to be. They always left
enough space. And in that space, unbound and unfettered,
It freely raised its head and did not need to be.
They fed it not with grain, but only with the possibility
To be. And they gave the animal such power
That its forehead grew a horn. One horn.
And thereby it came to a maiden, all white,
And was in the mirror-silver and in her.
- Rainer Maria Rilke

Comments: Arguably the best pony comic title of all time.

Comments: This was the first comic appearance of one of the Princess ponies. They just sort of TURNED UP with no official origin or explanation, although in one of the annuals its info-dropped that they used to live in the Dismal Desert with Prince High and Mighty.
Getting back to the story … I was sure this was going to be one of those “you only needed to believe in YOURSELF!” tales, but it turned out more like “make sure to have multiple sources of wishes at your disposal.” Life in Ponyland.
Do a good job, and I’ll … wait. Why are you an alicorn, Baby Firefly?

Custom KnockOut Pony!
The base is a FiM Rarity, which I found appropriate.
He took a while to complete but Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I’m so happy with how he turned out (DA link is here, with more views)
I just finished catching up with Transformers Prime; let’s celebrate with a pony custom of my favorite character!
I am not a “find a way to excuse the bad guys” type of person (ask me what I think about Gilda, Blueblood, or Trixie), but the Decepticons are certainly more interesting to me, what with their backstabbing, in-fighting, and dysfunctional personalities.

The Baby Ponies are my favorites! Especially the two unicorns, Baby Glory and Baby Moondancer.

Comments: First, Kimono and Twilight Sparkle BFF.
Second, Kimono is so right. Sometimes I listen to books on CD while I work and although it’s better than nothing, it’s a completely different experience than reading a book. Something is lost.
Who needs a Twilicorn when you can have a Twilibot?
Oh, sweet sweet translucent plastic. Now you really do sparkle, Twilight!
