BLAH, mandatory Angie art topic!
my doodle pages (only updated about once a year around June with a full sketchbook of scans)
to be for totally honest, I haven't actually been drawing ponies much lately. for about a year I kind of cut myself off from ponies, and shifted my attention to Animal Crossing, as there was much more variety in the characters. BUT I still do ponies once in a while. I still have to get around to taking commissions though. Once that happens, I'll probably be drawing a lot more ponies
unless nobody commissions me *sob*.
Also, rules say I don't have to limit this to just pony art, so I'll probably be posting everything I do here except for the Animal Crossing stuff because I do too much of that. maybe if I draw a horse character I'll post it here.
that's a lie, I'll probably post a few here that I'm extra proud of.
BUT YES, TIME FOR PICTURES:
the icons I made for the site
a pony that my four year old cousin described to me so I could draw it for her
a sheep from Animal Crossing to prove that I lied

Right, so some characters are edgy. Some characters are argumentative. Some characters are brash and unyeilding. Some characters just hate stuff. Us human beings have our own words for expressing frustration, anger, or malcontempt in our own ways, but some of those ways aren't such a great idea to just type right up into an MLP E-rated board. So here's where we start getting creative, and use our linguistic talents to get our point across without actually reverting to foul language. We can come up with more than just 'buck', after all.
Now, Pegasi have lots of bird puns available, and some of them might prove useful enough. Pluck and flock do rather nicely to usurp that most versatile of curses, and between the two, you've got almost as much versatility. "Go pluck yourself" or "That's a flocking lot of bees!" or whatever other use you might want to throw in will work pretty well.
Keeping up with the bird puns, there's also the bustard - a rather large, highly territorial species of bird that'll quickly peck anyone who happens to step too close to their particular batch of dirt and shrubs. Any pony or gryphon who's particularly difficult to work with or viciously opportunistic might well be acting akin to a bustard, so go aheand and use that one if you want.
As for unicorns, go nuts with the aerthic and magical puns. Given the tendancy for magical power to be direct applications of force, 'blast' is probably going to be pretty common. Blastard might be kind of a stretch, but it would be pretty well off for describing a hot-headed and ill-tempered individual. Unicorns might also have some pride about the size and functionality of their horns, so calling a unicorn hornless or implying that they're compensating for their lacking horn would work well around any magic-user.
Now, let's move onto religions analogues. Celestia isn't necessarily a deity, so "Celestia darn it" just doesn't translate all that well, when you think about it - for that matter, ponies don't seem to have a concept that translates from 'sentencing to eternal suffering', so if you want to sentence somebody with the wish that they go to The Place Of All General Badness, try using 'banish' instead of 'darn'. Besides, you darn a sock to repair it, darning is kind of a weird colloquialism. Do ponies even have socks in the show...?
As for unwelcome destinations, ponies in general don't seem to like the moon much. After all, they spent a thousand years having their greatest fear locked up on the moon. Tartarus might be where they keep all the really big creatures, but the moon seems to be the end-all of banishment destinations. NightMare also seems to be a pretty strong figure of evil for quick and easy comparison, if you're looking for a stand-in for Lucifer. Y'know, even if Princess Luna's in the Pretty Alright By All Accounts bin.
However, these are ponies and gryphons and the like, and most of them seem to be of rather easy-going, forgiving nature. Don't whip out the psuedo-curses too quickly, champs. Oh yeah, and I know skipped over calling a stallion a gelding. Let's just not go there. Those of you who don't know what it means, just trust me on this one.
Anyone else got any clever ideas for thematic insults or statements of excessive frustration?
Oh, yeah, and here's some ways Ignition might express her frustration at, uh, just about anyone unfortunate enough to be in shouting distance while she's mad. Spoilers just to avoid dumping punk pegasus anger all over the place.
"Hey, featherbrain! Do us all a favour and stay in Tartarus next time, wouldjya?"
"Cerberus called; Tartarus wants its idiot back!"
"Y'know what? You can just go to the moon and rot there, pal!"
"Celestia herself could not lock you deep enough in the moon to stop me from hating you!"
"You have three seconds to flock off ta somewhere else before I personally clobber you into the moon!"
"Hey, mama's boy! Are you a mother-flocker, or did they just forget to give you a spine?"
"You're such a bustard! How does anyone even DEAL with you!?"
"Ok, that gryphon? Total bustard. Don't even talk to 'em."
"Go pluck yourself, do us all a favour!"
"Wing-pluckin' idiot wouldn't know an updraft if it knocked him clean off his hooves..."
"Hey, hornless! Next time, cast a spell that doesn't suck!"
"Watch it, you careless blastard! You break my wing, I break you!"
"Y'know, I'm not sure if you're an idiot, or if they just forgot to give you a horn that works."
"Pfhahaha! Nice mane job! Did you get it to try and hide that tiny little horn of yours?"
"Yo, hornless wonder! Next time, try casting a spell, not just sayin' it!"
"Hey, pencil-horn! Are you even trying?"
"Ugh, I hope you get banished someday."
"I think I'd rather hang out with NightMare herself than spend two minutes in a room with you."
"One of these days, lady... POW! Buck ya right to the moon!"
"You are literally worse than Nightmare Moon right now. Good flockin' job."

Hello Last Post Wins.
It's been a long time, but I'm back again.
I've missed most of you, from Penby's jokerness to Angie's art.
From Fawke's madness to Nasty's.... Heart?
I don't know, I'm bad at poems.
Anyway Tyler007bon here, happy to serve!

Welp, we've worked, we've dragged our hooves, we've gone on an unholy Animal Crossing binge, we've slogged/enjoyed our way through Equestria Girls, but today, we achieve something of consequence! Yep, that's right, it's a forum update. Today's theme is growth.
Growing the world
We have a lore forum now. More importantly, we've developed a sensible system for handling lore! Those of you out there who want to build worlds should head on over there and check it out. Make sure to hit the stickied posts therein to familiarize yourself with the system.
Growing your garden
We're adding badges! As you achieve certain things or participate in certain events, you'll earn things to put in your garden (which you can opt to show at the foot of your posts). The more stuff you do, the more stuff you get. Right now, we have just two badges (donator and founder), but with your help, we will have many more. What would YOU like to see recognized? My pixel-finger is itching to make s'more. (Edit: Err. very soon. One or two kinks left to work out for badges).
Growing the forum
With this update, we're also starting outside advertisement to bring some fresh faces in, starting with the a post to Equestria Daily's nightly roundup (including the image atop this post -- much love and appreciation to BrianBlackberry for hooking us up). Feel free to spread the image itself as well, just as long as you leave the artist's signature and our URL on there. Depending on how much money we find in the couch cushions (our couches accept donations), we'll get rolling on some genuine ad-buys as well and get some fresh faces for you guys to initiate.
Growing the cast
Yep, cast! We'll be starting lesser cast members, and in the coming weeks, and slowly opening up the Big Dogs like the mane six in the coming weeks.
Growing this metaphor ceased to be useful last paragraph.
We've hired some staff. No more interminable waits while your app slowly festers in the midday sun! These waits are gonna be totally terminable now! Welcome aboard, SonicRainboomGirl, Vizionz, Knight, and Iza-Chan.

Whitetail Woods, home of the elusive deer!
Who are we?
Right now, there isn't much that separates us very much from any other pony community. However, as we grow, so too will the features that make us unique. Right now, the little shields under avatars are custom to our site, something that is not going to be anywhere else. In addition, an organized and strict canon-following Roleplay area is something that seems to be rare with most other FiM sites I've seen. It's not quite unique, but I think it is different. In the Roleplay area, we've even encompassed locations that are also in the comic or other FiM media, not strictly the locations from the show.
What makes us unique?
Friendship and Harmony, I guess. Oh, and a large part is community. Whitetail definitely wants to strive to have an open and welcoming and approachable staff, that listens and responds to feedback and suggestions and questions. Involving all members as much as possible is something that will become more evident in the future, and even with threads like this, is kind of obvious right now.
What do we stand for?
Deer. Deer seems to be the identity here.
What is our identity?
I think the large community aspect and friendliness and openness of staff is going to be a large positive trait on the site. The focus on deer, as well as ponies, is a nice draw, because it's not a focus most other sites are going to take. Deer haven't even been seen in canon, although the Whitetail Woods location does imply that they do indeed exist. And they did have some part in Lauren Faust's original designs for the show, so they are canon in that way as well.
What are the attributes, services, aesthetics and community dynamics that would make Whitetale Woods a special place?

This wonderful place is still under 3 weeks old, and questions could be asked about a young community.
Who are we?
What makes us unique?
What do we stand for?
Where are our hearts?
What is our identity?
These will be defined over the next months, possibly organically just by letting things fall where they may. The posts of the members, and the guidance of the staff will mold us and our identity will come into focus.
But we could be intentional about it.
What are the attributes, services, aesthetics and community dynamics that would make Whitetale Woods a special place?
I'd like to put forward a few ideas and hear the results of your own personal brainstorms.
*Inclusive (even if you aren't an RPer!)
*Sticky (can't put it down)
*Growing (deeper and wider)
*Respectful (especially in disagreement)
Please share the things that would charge you up about this family.

I was a tad frustrated with the character approval system at first too, but I really think that it helped me to flesh out my character in ways that I wouldn't have thought of if someone hadn't put some pressure on me and forced me to think and work harder on them. Now, some things about your OC may be incompatible with the rules and regulations on this site, but I do honestly think it's fair and balanced. Right now I'm seeing three main problems:
1) There's an unusual amount of focus on this wing-hoodie thing. Is such a trivial thing like that really so important to your character's lifestyle and backstory that it's become such a point of contention? I don't know, just seems like a strange thing to want or complain about really. @_@
2) You're comparing your OCs problems getting accepted to other OCs on the site who got accepted. Instead of looking at other sources like Gargoyles or LotR to try and justify Colt, think of how your character would exist in the FiM universe. Yes, the world of FiM is cobbled together from many different fictional elements and influences, but really examine things. Could your character feasibly exist within the boundaries set by the show?
3) You're being very antagonistic with the staff. From my short experience seeing them, they've been very cooperative and helpful in assuring that everything runs smoothly around WtW. If you want to try and present your case fairly, you might wish to try and not be so hostile. :shy:

Actually, Zecora makes magic potions all the time. Mixing drinks, potions, and other liquids doesn't seem very complicated to expand upon. It's a very simple process, one that's been around for probably thousands of years in our world. In addition, we can't really see EVERY business of EVERY town or city in Equestria. A night club doesn't seem like an unnatural thing to appear in show. After all, there was a Saloon shown in Over a Barrel, which would indicate that alcohol exists.
- Techo Tealeaf - sell "magical drinks" with magic and owns a "night club", two elements that have never seen on the show. We have seen potions and parties but not drinks that have been infused with or "clubs"
You know what, that was OUR bad. Dodger was ported over from another site, and it seems that myself and the staff member that approved it missed that. That's part of the reason we now have the two person check system. The staff make mistakes, and we aren't afraid to admit that. I will update the character and remove that reference, I'm sorry that I forgot it was there. We're all human, we're not perfect.
- Dodger - Has or had close relationship with a Cynogriffin, WTF is a Cynogriffin? I had to google it to know what it was and discover they are Canine Gryphons that never appear on the show.
The San Palomino Desert is actually from the canon map. Though the location has never been named in show, the map IS officially licensed by Hasbro, and thus, fits into our canon. That's the same with Macintosh Hills, both are on the canon map. EVERY current location on the board is canon, and you can look at all of them on the Equestria page of the MLP Wiki. There is also the possibility of creating new locations through the lore section of the board. There is even ability to create new species, expand on the species of the show (you could even pitch your idea that Dragons can do magic), and all sorts of things that go beyond the canon of the show.
- Seeker - Mentions the San Palomino Desert and the mountain outskirts of the Macintosh Hills never mentioned in the show and claims to be part of a nomad shepherds family that has never depicted in the show.
Ah, this one is easy to explain! So, you know how this site is called Whitetail Woods? Did you know there is also a real life create called whitetail deer? That would indicate that deer exist in Equestria. In addition, being as we can and are willing to expand on the Equestria world through the lore section, we did so reasonable at first with adding deer. In addition, Lauren Faust had created a character before she left the show, which was a pony raised by deer. There is evidence that deer could have, and might still in the future, appear in the show. The strongest point being the existence of Whitetail Woods, of course.
- Tenderhoof - He is a deer, a creature never hinted to exist in Equestria other than the horn on the reprecentation of chaos itself.

Can we have a taco stand please? I'm just here chatting with all dese people, and I get really hungry and all that's around are leaves, deer, and spiced ham.
I'm really hankering for some tacos.
1. It would attract new members to the site
2. We wouldn't have to eat leaves and deer and spiced ham
3. it would increase our economy.
4. You could put some of the profits to the donations.
5. You could all enjoy a taco, or even RP enjoying a taco.
6. It would make Whitetail Woods even more multicultural
7. Everyone likes tacos
8. I'll cry on your face if you don't
9. It'd be fun
10. Don't ban me plz

Well this seems a good a place as any to get some things said. (Yes I am about to splurge some mad honestly on y'all so get your umbrellas and stuff)
I don't believe there should be any need for arguing between Canterlotians or Woods inhabitants, 'cause c'mon now that's just silly. I won't sugarcoat it and I'll just say a fair amount of people did choose to come here in the hopes of escaping some prior difficulties, even if it wasn't their first intention, that's a given. Heck even with myself, I got fired from their staff 'cause I raised a question in chat that apparently shouldn't have been asked, and even now I'm roaming around Canterlot and here like a headless chicken as a result, not really knowing what to do, but the idea of hating whatever experiences Canterlot gave you for likely one or two or three instances of bad treatment seems odd to me. I know most of you likely did have these good experiences as well, given the friends you've brought here.
I'll be honest in saying that Canterlot is not perfect, and that it's management is far from perfect, and it is certainly not for everybody. I first got into Canterlot as a way to experience the fandom in a more personal and interesting way and I did manage to do that, even some of the mods here can attest to that. I don't regret my time spent on Canterlot 'cause, for all it's errors and occasional mishaps, it was still a good experience, and a good experience I hope to continue once I find myself with more free time. I know I didn't get along well with everybody on Canterlot but I don't get along with every person in every group of people either. Does it mean I'll hate 'em for it? Nah. Does it mean I'll still vent and feel mad about it? Of course, but it's all about how you handle that emotional response to something like a banning or a firing.
I really and truly think Whitetail woods should not be looked at as a bi-product of Canterlot's occasional slip ups, 'cause then what does that make this site? I understand there will naturally be tension between some devoted users of either forum but at the end of the day we're all in the same fandom and we can all relate to similar concepts and actually care about each other as opposed to this black and white, left or right mentality that could happen.
I'm saying this mostly as a release to get it off my chest but this is be being honest about it (As the title of this thread implies) I don't believe there should be room for any arguing or loyalties since we're all only ourselves and only hold responsibility for ourselves. If we wanna go to another forum then sweet. But when we start comparing sites and being all defensive over something we can never really control it just seems silly to me. It's all a matter of opinion though so you guys think what you like, just decided to throw my two cents in here.
So, honestly, to sum this whole post up, I'll use this.
And I will see all of you again once these confounded final exams are done! Until then, all the best!
