Week 213 Wrap Up

Hey, wait! This bat blog entry? Bats aren't yaks... this no yak entry. This no perfect entry! YAK SMASH!!

Dear Celestia, you guys again? *bats the yaks into the stratosphere*

Well, now that Team Yak is blasting off again, let's get down to business. This is indeed not a week for pictures of yaks; it's a week for pictures of bats! Or, more precisely, bat ponies. Ponies of the night with membranous wings who can navigate by sounds only they can hear! Actually, is that even accurate? Bat ponies are so rare that we don't really know much about them. Indeed, some even think that they don't exist at all, and that the ones we've seen are actually just pegasi with illusions cast upon them.

Well, whatever exactly they may be, you'll find a number of pictures of them below the break. Just keep a close eye on your apples, as there may potentially be a vampire fruit bat lurking down there as well. Or maybe not.

But seriously, I though Pinkie Pie had smoothed things over with the yaks...

Week 212 Wrap Up

That which does not sleep may eternally lie,
And with strange aeons even sleep may... cry?

Err, I don't think I got that quote right.

At any rate, this has been a good week for tired ponies, because they've all finally had a chance to sleep. And the Princess of the Night has done her best to make sure that everypony has pleasant dreams.

*Yawn* And now that everypony is settled down, I think it's my turn to slumber. Feel free to take a look through the gallery in the mean time; you don't need to wait for anypony to reawaken. Just be sure to keep things quiet in here, as this is certainly not a good time for loud noises. Or rude ones...

A flower makes a nifty bed, and a soft pillow for your head. - fetchbeer

Week 211 Wrap Up


Oh dear, that was louder than expected. Well, at least we're not in a library, or some other place where loud noises are frowned upon. Or rude noises, for that matter. I should probably stop gulping down my soda like that, nonetheless.

Oh, and uh... pardon.

At any rate, we're not here to talk about my big mouth, or the big noises that can come out of it. We're here to talk about... *shuffles through his papers*... huh, 'big mouths' actually. So I guess we are here to talk about my big mouth, and everypony else's at that. And big noises too, for that matter. Though, one does not need a big mouth to make a big noise; just ask Princess Luna. Actually, don't ask her that; it may insult her. And you don't want to be on her bad side...

But enough about that. Now, do you all want to see some artwork? Well, all together now: YEAH!!

01. Speedy526745

A giants breath is a bit of a risk, even a little gasp causes wind quite brisk. - fetchbeer

02. cobralash

A roar or a plaintive squeak, whether brave or meek. - fetchbeer

Week 210 Wrap Up

Life is a journey, as they say, and sometimes that saying is more literal than others. And this is one of those times!

This has been a week of exploration, as ponies of all varieties take to the road to see what lies beyond that hill. Or beyond that river, or within that forest, or even behind that cloud bank in the case of some pegasi. Hmm, I wonder how many bits can be stored in a cloud bank...

Oops, I seem to be getting off-task here. But I guess that's just my brain going off to explore an errant thought again. It tends to do that. But before I go off on another tangent, I'd like to direct you towards this week's artwork gallery. Feel free to explore in here to your heart's content!

An unwilling adventure led by a horn, the downside of being a unicorn. - fetchbeer

Week 209 Wrap Up

<Yawns.> Whew! It's been a really tiring week, what with all these delegates running about. So many cultures to experience, so many new ponies and non-ponies to meet, so many social landmines to step on...

On that note, I'd like to apologize again to the Whinnyapolis delegate for asking her what part of Caneighdia she's from. I never was good at identifying accents.

Now if you'll excuse me, the zebra delegates have brought some of their traditional foods for everyone to sample, and I've heard the kaimati is really good.

<door crashes open> "Hey! This no Yak blog entry. This not perfect entry! YAK SMASH!!"

<Shoves the yaks back out the door.> Hey, you guys aren't scheduled to arrive until next week. Go back home!

Week 208 Wrap Up

"Another day, another dollar", as they say. But who is this 'they', anyways. And why do they say such things? And what exactly is a 'dollar' anyways? Is it something akin to a bit? And for Celestia's sake, why am I asking so many questions!?

Truth be told, I have no idea. But it doesn't really matter anyways, because we're here to celebrate milestones! And neither a day nor a dollar is much of a milestone. No, a milestone is something grander, something that marks a significant turning point in one's life. Something like a wedding, or graduation, or getting one's first job. Or a better job, for that matter.

And milestones aren't limited to one's own life either. Countries can have milestones, such as their formation, significant changes in leadership, and the creation of new alliances. Likewise, a university would celebrate their founding, the opening of a new scholastic building, or a student becoming famous.

And of course, television series can have milestones as well. Such as reaching a full one hundred episodes, as a certain series important to us has done just recently. Which is why we've been celebrating milestones of all sorts this week, including the ones below the break:

Week 207 Wrap Up

Well, it looks like it's time to get back to the daily grind. And I don't mean the MMO variety; that was last week. Nope, I mean the boring kind of daily grind: chores. Everypony's gotta do them. Washing the dishes, sweeping the floor, feeding the llamas, ironing the clothes, taking out the trash, raising the barn, swabbing the deck, repairing damage from monster attacks, mucking the stables...

Actually, do Equestrians even have stables? I know they have saddles, but... well, whether or not they have stables is not really important. What is important is that ponies would need to keep up with their stable chores if stables do indeed exist.

Come to think of it, MMO daily quests would indeed count as day-to-day activities, and can potentially become a chore to grind through. So I guess that concept wouldn't be limited to last week's theme. But whatever your daily chores might be, you're certainly not alone in needing to do them. Here's a bunch of ponies right here that are in the same boat as you are. So get off of your collective flanks, and start swabbing those decks!
