177......was the total number of hugs I gave/received at BABSCon this last weekend. Oh glorious day! (Well, three days, really.)Pictured: Left: statoose (me); right: xjuggernaughtx.This fine, loudly-dressed gentleman with me is my friend, xjuggernaughtx, who I met through the Friendship is Magic fanfiction community over a year ago, and got to meet in real life for the first time at the con in California.Giving out free hugs was by far the best part of the convention, for me. I was pleasantly surprised at the different kinds of hugs I got – and I mean that in all seriousness! There was fun, big hugs from bros; emotional, happy hugs to people who needed them; quiet, affectionate hugs from shy people; and even five hugs fro ma family passing by who weren't even at the hotel for the convention. That last one was particularly cool. Nobody can deny a free hug wh
Sheeeeeepy!Hey, got a moment and want to see something cute? Check out this character I commissioned over the week! —By RacoonKun.She's a sheep-girl named Woolly! Conceived in my mind and brought to life by the wonderful RacoonKun. I am super happy with how she turned out. When it comes to commissions, the end result will never be exactly what one had in mind, but I tell you, this is the spitting imagine of what I imagined.If you like it, go on over to the original deviation page and drop a comment and favorite, and I totally encourage everyone to check out the rest of RacoonKun's sweet gallery. My favorites of his are the humanized pony drawings specific to certain episodes from season 4: <

Ermahgerd, yesyesyesyesyesyeysyes...I don't know if anyone who follows me will be even close to as excited as I am right now, but to the one of you who is, you know how I feel when I watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s97B97dIpDQMirror's Edge 2! Mirror's freakin' Edge, freakin' 2! Mirror's Edge 2!!! Yesyesyeysyesyesyesyesyes!^ That's me right now. Ye-he-he-hesssss! Oh God the repeated squee... all the squee...If anyone out there knows how I feel, come here, let's dance to that song at the end of the trailer. Right now, come on!:icondummydanceplz:
It All Makes Sense NowI'm actually rather excited to see how Equestria Girls pans out. Looks like fun, once you get past the whole purple-skinned humans thing!
Well, That Escalated QuicklyAh yes, "April Fools".Welp, to the bullshit-proof shelter once more! Who wants french toast? 'Cause I'm makin' french toast. We can cuddle, too, if ya like.
I have a ponysa now. Ponysas are cool.Ever wondered what I'd look like were I a pony? Of course you have!Ta-daaaa! Look at his scarf! Who needs socks or sweaters? S'all about scarves!Someday, I'll post a photograph of myself, and you'll see the resemblance. No cutie mark for now, though... Thanks to Quanno3 for vectoring him. Much love, man. In other news, you know what sucks? Stories ending. I've just recently finished what is now one of my all-time favorite fanfics (The Final Quest of Star Swirl the Bearded, a story with the bitterest and sweetest of bittersweet endings), and I'm steadily making my way through the final book in the Harry Potter series, so my feels are somewhat shaky right now. You guys ever have that? Took me two whole days to fully recover form the ending of Order of the Phoenix.
Oh hey, look, another finale-related journal!As if you didn't already have too many of those to completely ignore, like I do read patiently.Just wanted to throw my two cents in. What's different here is that the faces on the pennies that make up those two cents are happy ones!I really enjoyed the finale. True, it was a bit rushed, but I feel they did everything they could within the 21-minute boundary.My reactions in chronological order were:ERMAHGERD A TWI-SONG! YES!ERMAHGERD TWI TAP DANCING!ERMAHGERD COOL PLOTLINE!ERMAHGERD ANOTHER EPIC TWI-SONG! YES!ERMAHGERD FRIENDSHIP IS AWESOME!ERMAHGERD ANOTHER AWESOME SONG! YEHEHES!ERMAHGERD A CELESTIA SONG! YEEEEEEEEEEESSSS!ERMAHGERD TWILIGHT IS BEST PRINCESS!ERMAHGERD I CAN'T WAIT FOR SEASON 4!Seriously, though, there was a lot of awesome in this episode. Seeing little Twily growing up – seeing Celestia actually bow down to her – fills me with joy. I actually cried more than once during the songs. That's a sign of an awes
