Week 235 Wrap Up

Happy Hearth's Warming, everypony! I hope you all got what you really wanted this year, whether it be a new book, a paint set, a Smarty Pants doll, a 'Get out of jail free' card, or even just a rock. And don't forget the whole 'get to spend time with your family' thing. that's kinda important too. But at any rate, once again, Happy Holidays to you all!

Forgive me for being brief this week, but I need to head out as soon as possible. The Guards are still looking for me after that Totally-Not-An-Art-Heist last week...

Gallery for Week 208

01. Speedy526745

Share the holiday with tiny friends, though to see them you may need a lens. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
Not much of a background I can put here, but since it's gonna be cold for the next few weeks, I might come up with something for ATG 236 by then. Just a note: Ganaram and Gem aren't related (they just have the same last name by coincidence) and Nova and Electrobolt aren't related (they just have similar colouration by coincidence).

Dressing up to keep nice and warm, especially with the winter storms. - fetchbeer

03. Scuri Levenstein

She seems to doubt how safe that scooter is, even though with wheels she's a wiz! - fetchbeer

Week 234 Wrap Up

Ah, good. You're all here. We've got a heist to plan and the sooner we get started, the sooner we get paid! Now, we'll need to be really sneaky to pull this off. The gallery has a number of highly competent guards, all of whom will be more than happy to set off the alarm if we so much as exhale too loudly. So make sure you're as quiet as a mouse and as unobtrusive as a shadow. Now, the paintings we're after are marked with... what's that? Just visiting the Gallery, you say? So wait...

You're not the Payday Herd?

Umm... Yes, this concludes this performance of my, umm... avant garde performance art, uhh, thingy. Yes. I'm totally not planning a real heist here, that would be silly. So feel free to peruse the art here... in the Gallery... that is totally not going to be stolen. Yes, umm...

So I'm just quietly going to leave now. Toodles.

Gallery for Week 207

01. Speedy526745

You'd think their size would make it hard to hide, though the tiny people may be horrified. - fetchbeer

02. Lemon-Bitter-Twist

Are your swords so quick, that you can give him more than a nick? - fetchbeer

03. Scuri Levenstein

With those stripes so very loud, you can't hear even without a crowd. - fetchbeef

04. Vaser888

Sometimes it's too hard to hide, but is standing in the open still untried? - fetchbeer

05. G-DO-29--Anagram
I was a bit out of ideas and I was a bit busy. The only thing I could think of was blowing up each other with unlucky Lucky Blocks.

From where do these question blocks appear? Their presence just seems rather queer. - fetchbeer

Week 233 Wrap Up

Season 5 has reached it's thrilling conclusion, and now we're in the drought between seasons once again. But let's not worry about that right now, and instead celebrate the glory and joy this season has brought us. It's time to party! Togas are optional, but conga lines are mandatory; everypony loves a conga line! And we've also got cake and candy and punch and cupcakes and I totally haven't had too much sugar already and hey there's the next guest arriving I should go greet them so you go and have fun now!

Just please don't drop Twilight's assistant in the punch again. the joke's getting old, and he gets all sticky and bleh.

Gallery for Week 206

01. Speedy526745

Some ponies have prehensile hair, for others this would be a nightmare. - fetchbeer

02. Lemon-Bitter-Twist

Always find a time to dance, to just have fun and prance. - fetchbeer

03. Vaser888

Frosting and candy and sweetened bread, and some snacking soon ahead. - fetchbeer

04. Scuri Levenstein

There's always one that wants this dance, though they may receive an evil glance. - fetchbeer

After a long campaign in the field

Week 232 Wrap Up

So, we've got this new AI here to help us run things. She's called, uhh, what was it... HaPPYDOS, or something like that. Anyway, she's opened up this portal to an alternate universe here, and wants me to go check it out. And she's promised that it's not full of 'hoomans', whatever those are. At any rate, here I go!

Time passes...

*stumbles back out of the portal with his hooves covering his eyes* Oh, oh dear Celestia! That was awful! Truly horrific! The colors, the eye-piercing colors! They're so vibrantly pastel that they bore right into your eyes! And the singing! Choral voices that seem to be everywhere, assailing your ears from all directions! I think the singing was coming from the flowers themselves, but the blinding colors made it impossible to tell for sure.

I'd better go visit the clinic and make sure there's no permanent damage to my senses, but in the meantime you can feel free to take a look at these pictures showing alternate universes that others have visited. Pictures are much safer than actually visiting such universes in person, after all. I shall hopefully be back shortly.

But seriously, who would have thought that the Universe of Ultimate Goodness and Light would be so dangerous?

Gallery for Week 205

01. Speedy526745

Some ponies show little change, no matter the universe exchange. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
I had originally planned for four parallel timelines, but computer breakdowns again plague me, so this is two of the planned four parallel timelines: the revised original of [ATG 226 - Secret] where Nova's sister is dead and an alternate where Flora's brother is dead. Preemptively posting early in case my main computer catches fire. (Not really.) WARNING: EXTREMELY HUGE IMAGE

Some events are just too close, though neither case is less morose. - fetchbeer

03. pony-x
"my transceiver is fine, i'm just a little hoarse"

There's somewhere everyone fits in, though every organization has spies within. - fetchbeer

04. Chronitsch Chron1
Twilight concluded her assignments in the other world, on her way back she seems to have been distracted and said a wrong word. The portal that opened was to equestria but a different one, at least she hopes.., Will she step through saving this equestria or will she steo back and try again

Worlds where the dead still walk, enough to make the bravest balk. - fetchbeer

05. Scuri Levenstein

Some shy ones could be brave, and those thought strong enslave. - fetchbeer

06. Lemon-Bitter-Twist

A guild that each world they find improves, though this time they find themselves with hooves. - fetchbeer

07. Vaser888
Beware, the ponies from this universe are so cute that they are deadly.

This cute thing may cause heart attacks, which is how they catch their snacks. - fetchbeer

08. Hotep Forgefer

This donkey seems to need a pasture green, for too much life he seems to have seen. - fetchbeer

Week 231 Wrap Up

This is a week to celebrate celebrities! So here's to the joys of fame! The razzle dazzle, and glitz and glam! The grand productions! The screaming crowds! The long lines for autographs! The obsessed fans. The exhausting practice sessions. The bouts of stage fright...

You know what? I think I'll leave all of this to somepony else, and just stay here behind the proverbial curtain. All of this doesn't really sound like the sort of thing an introvert like myself would really enjoy. But to those who do enjoy fame, and/or aspire to it, here's a series of pictures created to celebrate it!

Gallery for Week 204

01. G-DO-29--Anagram
Not so much the actual fame but the downfall of said fame. Also an extension of [ATG 226 - Secret] and [ATG 2230 - Pony Feud]. Bonus points to those who can find the weird stuff in the background.

Some stories are very sad, but better shared with a comrade. - fetchbeer

02. Speedy526745

A pony peeking through a hole in space, just showing off her cute face. - fetchbeer

03. Cobralash

Always find a place to sing, whether it's the fall or spring. - fetchbeer

04. Lemon-Bitter-Twist

Some posters just deserve to be vandalized, until other punishment can be devised. - fetchbeer

05. pony-x

Cameras instill a fear in some, and their flashes can make them glum. - fetchbeer

06. Scuri Levenstein

Some ponies are known the world over, though they are rarer than a four leafed clover. - fetchbeer

07. Vaser888

Famous ones do much more than a single thing, though this one usually seems to sing. - fetchbeer

Week 230 Wrap Up

Orange you glad I didn't say banana?


Yes, I know I told that joke last week. But seriously, how do you ponies not get that!? It's a classic knock kno- *Tomato to the face!*

Well, that was uncalled for. We're here to tell jokes, not to get involved in a food feud. If that's the kind of show you want, you should take a trip to Trottingham. They're always going on about 'the apples and pears' over there. You know, I never did figure out what exactly they mean by that. Somepony once told me that King Sombra likes them, but I never did figure out what that meant, either...

But enough of that. You're not here to hear me rambling, you're here to hear my knock knock j- *Tomato to the face! Again!*

Alright, alright! I'll stop with the knock knock jokes! Jeez, you ponies are throwing around enough vegetables to supply an all-you-can-eat salad buffet. So how about I just open up the gallery and then leave you all to your food feuds. I think I need a vacation. I wonder what the fjords are like this time of year...

Gallery for Week 203

01. Speedy526745

Giant greens are hard to eat, but are quite easy to beat. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
Not so much the actual feud, but a little after (approx. 3 days) when you're still riled up or griked in regret. Also an extension of [ATG 226 - Secret]. Bonus points to those who can piece together the story.

Secrets can lead to a broken heart, but maybe your love can restart. - fetchbeer

03. Lemon-Bitter-Twist
Even the Flim Flam brothers might learn not to take on the Apple family.... one day.

I've never seen a trebuchet so large, it would definitely stop a charge. - fetchbeer

04. pony-x
Do you feel lucky? pink!

The face that launched a thousand pies, maybe she should learn to compromise. - fetchbeer

05. Scuri Levenstein

Those turnips are cold at heart, and may give Luna quite a start. - fetchbeer

Week 229 Wrap Up

Orange you glad I didn't say banana?

... Get it? Orange...? Oh c'mon, ponies! This is the oldesss... Actually, I probably shouldn't finish that sentence. Maud Pie may be in the audience.

Hmm... Well, let's try this one then: Have you heard about Harry's recent move into a new tree house? He moved because his old neighborhood was simply unbearable! Get it? Un'bear'able? ...Because Harry is a b-wha-woah! *falls flat on his face*

Hmm... Maybe I should just stay on all fours instead of doing my routines while standing up on my hind legs. I don't think anypony is getting the 'stand up' comedy joke anyways.

Well, you know what? I think it's time I yielded the stage to some ponies who are much more adept at puns than I seem to be. Here they come now:

Gallery for Week 202

01. Speedy526745

Getting your mane all covered in gunk, causes one to enter a vengeful funk. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
A bus, in computerland, is whatever the heck connects your various computer parts to other computer parts. A bus, in commuterland, is whatever the heck connects your various commuting locations to other commuting locations. So a computer bus and a commuter bus are basically similar things, but you gotta read to the end of the word to really see the difference. (Basically, the only pony pun that could be pulled off, the plug got pulled.)

Try not to get your homophones confused, or those who fix your stuff will be amused. - fetchbeer

03. Lemon-Bitter-Twist
A pony Bun...

Try not to hang around giant buns, especially when they weigh several tons. - fetchbeer

04. Scuri Levenstein

Never trust a pony in a tracksuit, or you'll soon lose your pony named scoot. - fetchbeer

05. AaronMk
And then Scootaloo was an attack helicopter.

If your wings aren't big enough to fly, just get a device to rule the sky. - fetchbeer

Week 228 Wrap Up

Spooky scary skeletons come creeping... err, crawling...? Uhh...

How did that song go again?

Ah well, that was last week's theme anyways. This week's theme was about rocks! Igneous, metamorphic, sedim... wait, this week's theme isn't A Pony With Rocks? But rocks are all that my new friends talk about. Rocks and rock farms and rock candy and rock soup... and crystals, for the occasional change of pace. Meeting new ponies can be a lot of fun, but sometimes they'll talk your ears off about their passions. But then, old friends sometimes do that too.

But if this week's theme isn't A Pony With Rocks, then what is the theme? Perhaps taking a look through the gallery below, and talking to the ponies doing the same, will shed some light on this. And who knows, perhaps you'll make a new friend among all the new ponies you will meet within.

Gallery for Week 201

01. Speedy526745

A new friend is always sweet, and now to bond with a nice treat. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
Not so much the process of meeting new friends, but a little after when you get to know them better. Worst show-and-tell session ever.

Toilets are often overlooked, as bathrooms are always overbooked. - fetchbeer

03. Lemon-Bitter-Twist
A good time to find a new friend is when your life is flashing before your eyes, especially if they can save you.

Some ponies should always watch their step, unless a sudden drop gives them pep. - fetchbeer

04. Scuri Levenstein

Best friends because of a love of rocks, at least they don't just love socks. - fetchbeer

05. Vaser888

A bird makes a good companion, and one not hindered by a canyon. - fetchbeer

Week 227 Wrap Up

Christmas, Christmas time is near
Time for toys and time for cheer...

Wait, wrong holiday. Wrong universe, for that matter. But nonetheless, these two holidays do have some things in common. First of all, candy! Lots and lots of candy! And also costumes! Although in this case, the costumes are a fair bit scarier than an elderly guy in a red suit. Now a sinister green thing in a red suit, on the other hoof; that's scary! Especially if he's coming down your chimney. But that's from yet another universe, thankfully. Right?


Err, let's take our minds off of these scary thoughts by seeing what costumes everypony is wearing this Nightmare Night, shall we?

Gallery for Week 200

01. Goggle Sparks

Where in the world could this pony be? They seem to be predisposed to flee. - fetchbeer

02. Speedy526745

Getting in the shell might cause some pain, but it will protect you from the rain. - fetchbeer

03. Cobralash

This costume is quite well grounded, and someone is certain to be astounded. - fetchbeer

04. Scuri Levenstein

Some are shocked by holidays, hopefully they meet some delays. - fetchbeer

05. G-DO-29--Anagram
Obligatory schism between the candy fetchers and the candy distributors. Plus, if you're given a question whose answers are either A or B but given options C and D to choose from, what answer do you pick?

This comment is made every year, but it just meets a sneer. - fetcbeer

06. HalflingPony
There’s Nothing Under Your Bed!

Do you trust what your parents say, or is there a monster to cause dismay? - fetchbeer

07. Vaser888

This costume is sure to cause dismay, though she's just here to play. - fetchbeer

08. Lemon-Bitter-Twist
Inspired by my son's cosplay of Vampire Vinyl to his local MLP CCG group.

Dripping fangs and spinning discs, the dj knows her jobs risks. - fetchbeer

09. AaronMk
"J'suis le Grand Zombie My yellow belt of choison Ain't afraid of no tom cat Fill my brains with poison"

Bones painted on the fragile skin, show what it's like within. - fetchbeer
