Week 368 Wrap Up

Why can't we be friends?

Because I'm singing an annoyingly repetitive song? Okay, fair enough. Truth be told, I agree with you on that. So let's just pretend that didn't happen, okay?

Fortunately, we don't need to pretend that the Gallery is ready for the night. The artists have been working their imaginations all week, pondering the meaning of pretending, contemplating the virtues of imaginary companions... though perhaps with less pretentiousness. But we no longer need to imagine what the results might be, for the Gallery is now open for the night!

Week 367 Wrap Up

Geez, I've been walking along this beach for half an hour now, and still no sugar cane in sight. I haven't even seen any giant squid yet, and those things are usually everywhere. And are those unicorns in the distance? There aren't any unicorns in...

Wait a minute. This isn't my Minecraft world, is it. Well that certainly explains a lot. Must have passed through a magic portal or something without realizing it. Bleh. Well, I better start heading back the way I came. The Gallery still needs to be set up for the new weekly exhibit. Perhaps the artists have had better luck with beaches this week than I have.

Well, things could be worse, I must admit. I could have ended up in Banoi.

Week 366 Wrap Up

Into everyone's life, a little rain must fall. It's quite the cliché, I know, but it's still true. But is it really a bad thing? Rain is important to farmers, as the water brought by storms keeps their crops alive and growing. And the gentle patter of rain outside can be quite soothing, especially in the evening when one is settling down for sleep. And as they say, "April showers bring May flowers." And yes, I know it's another terrible cliché (and that it's July), but my point still stands.

But enough of that. The time has come to open up this week's Gallery exhibit. This week's theme has, of course, been rain. So let us see how relaxing the weather may or may not have been for our art subjects this week.

Week 365 Wrap Up

Ponyville. My Ponyville. A city... err, town... of a thousand criminals.

... Yes, dear sidekick, I know the town's official census lists only a few hundred citizens. You don't actually think the badguys take the census, do you?

Now, where was I? Oh right, "a thousand criminals". But this ci-err, town has a guardian. A shadowy guardian who stalks evil like a phantom in the darkness. And that guardian is me. For when Destiny's mighty hand makes the bed of your... uhh, destiny, it is your obligation to lie in it! And you don't fight Destiny. And you don't eat oatmeal in the bed of your future, for that is just crazy! And... I don't know where I'm going with this metaphor.

But it will end with me pounding two-hooved justice into the hearts of evildoers everywhere! For I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the oat that wedges between your teeth! I am... completely out of time, actually. See you all next week!

Week 364 Wrap Up

The time has come, at last. Tonight is the night that we will put our plans into motion, overthrow 'Queen' Chrysalis, and then try to take over the world! So Pinkie, are you pondering what I'm pondering?

... No, Pinkie. Having the ability to talk to fish would not be helpful in this situation. It's the Elements of Harmony that we need. Their power will enable us to depose the royalty, Chrysalis and the Equestrian Sisters alike, and install ourselves as the realm's Overlords! And all we have to do is find the Tree of Harmony. This plan is foolproof! So, are you pondering what I'm pondering?

... No, Pinkie. The Tree of Harmony is not going to realize we're fakes and dissolve us. Seriously, where do you even get these ideas? Now come along, everypony. We've still got some planning to do, if we're going to pull this off flawlessly.

Week 363 Wrap Up

This week's theme is all about one of the great royal houses of Canterlot history: The Tudors. The name 'Tudor' is an odd one, and one of unknown origin. Some believe it is based on an ancient Coltic name meaning 'ruler of the people', but full evidence of this is yet to be found. The Tudor Family came to power in the region of Bittain early in Princess Celestia's rule. Known for their conflicts with Prance, and even moreso their internal political intrigue, The Tudor family... wait, the theme is 'Tutor'? Err, oops.

Well, at least I kindof demonstrated the theme, even if I was mistaken about what it actually was.

Week 362 Wrap Up

The times, they are a-changin'! ...No, not 'changeling', 'changing'. Though changelings certainly do fit the theme this week. Everything changes over time. Sometimes that change is planned, and sometimes not. Sometimes change is cyclical, like the seasons of the year, but usually it is linear, such as a tadpole growing into a frog. But change always comes in some form or another, and one must be ready to handle it. So let's see how the resident artists have interpreted, and handled, the theme of Change this week:
