every sad is a step to happy (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*･゜ﾟ･*:･ﾟ✧
So I’ve been talking and talking about this thing. It’s time to finally meet the characters of Pony Fanfic Theatre 6000! Before I begin, I want to give huge amounts of thanks to Written Waiver, for providing the art for this!
From left to right:
Strawberry Joy: An earth pony, who usually just goes by Joy, she’s a massage therapist by trade. She uses her large size to effect in her field, and is well regarded. She’s boisterous, with a slight Southern twang to her voice, and she loves the ladies.
Silken Steel: Transstallion pegasus with a perpetual smirk, he works with fabric design and manufacturing, producing cloth and materials for all kinds of purposes. He’s a sports fan, and he loves the dudes, especially the cute ones. Very much in control, he never raises his voice, and doesn’t have to.
Thought Bubble: That’s me! In universe, she’s a transmare unicorn, a writer, who publishes an advice column in the local paper. She’s also the one who originally organized them into creating the small fiction writing magazine that they all contribute to (or used to, in the case of Quip.)
HARMONY AI: The AI that runs the Moon Base under Quip’s command, this is just her holographic avatar. She’s nasty, mean, and rude. She also can’t do a damn to hurt the others, and is required to obey their commands and serve their wishes outside of the Reading Sessions. (During said Sessions she forces them into the Reading Chamber instead.) She’s never happy to help them, but can’t ever turn them down either, so she’s always passive aggressive.
Aquavit: They’re quiet. Agender, and racequeer to boot. On any given day they might appear as an earth pony, pegasus, or unicorn. They love old movies and are an avid video gamer, and by day work in maintaining the water system of Ponyville. It’s not the funnest of jobs but it provides them with money. (Additional art of Aquavit is available and will be posted separately at a later time.)
Quip: A nasty, cruel mare, she fancies herself a professional editor, and originally joined their magazine so she could use her editing skills in an overbearing, hateful way. Thought Bubble fired her, and ever since she’s been scheming for revenge. She imprisoned the others on the Moon in order to make them suffer by reading terrible fanfiction drawn from the human world, so they could see what humans thought of ponies like them.
I am really looking forward to this project! :D
Ok im done with this animations, its kinda off i know but its just a test to know at least how to make an animation.
Also guys, if you gonna see it please let the flash charge completely, when it’s full charged Right click the animation and click rewind and the reproduce, for some reason it doesnt play at first.
Also sorry for the bad quality :I
Bad quality? Not at all. This is lovely. :D
I’d have to reconcile it with perfect horse boyfriends OTP Caramac, though! Which is doable, I guess…
So, let’s say, having been rejected by Applejack and Granny Smith, and unable to control his furious applelust, Trenderhoof starts hitting on Mac. Mac is uncomfortable, because he’s so very committed to Caramel, you see. And Caramel feels threatened and upset by this, of course, because he’s always felt like an awkward, anxious, unattractive dork, and wakes up grateful and amazed every day that anyone as great as Mac could actually love him back. So he worries that he can’t compare to a smooth hipster cool guy like Trenderhoof.
Trenderhoof can’t take a hint, though. After a couple days of this, he’s come back calling at Sweet Apple Acres, completely oblivious to how Mac keeps hemming and hawing and trying to taciturn-silence his way out of their interactions. Caramel has been hiding in their bed with his head under a pillow, trying - and failing - not to hear, with every one of Trenderhoof’s words a dagger in his heart. Finally, Caramel can’t help but storm downstairs furious and almost in tears, sticking a hoof in his chest pointedly: “Big Macintosh is mine. Do you hear me? Mine. I don’t deserve him, but he loves me and I love him and it’s made me the happiest stallion in Ponyville. So back off.”
Trenderhoof, embarrassed, slumps down on his haunches defeated and apologizes profusely to the both of them. Sputtering in a semi-dazed infatuation, he accidentally starts to drift off into sexual fantasy - how strong and virile Mac is, how hot those dense red muscles are, and how jealous he is of Caramel getting to share a bed with a big strong country boy like that. He doesn’t even notice that he’s growing hard, as he continues to ramble on about Mac’s sexiness, but Mac and Caramel do, and blush red (and redder) at the unicorn’s erection. But…Caramel’s anger has dropped away, and now he can only feel empathy; why, the city slicker isn’t so different from him at all, really. And honestly, looking down at himself, it appears he’s getting pretty turned on too, with all this talk about his sweetie’s ample physical assets.
Excusing themselves and turning away from Trenderhoof - still rambling and semi-entranced - he and Mac whisper quietly for a few moments, before coming to an agreement with a satisfied kiss. Waving a hoof in the writer’s face to get his attention, Caramel goes over what they discussed, looking to Mac for the occasional confirming nod. Mac’s heart belongs to Caramel, and vice versa, but would Trenderhoof like to be their special guest some time? Biting his lip with a grin, the unicorn agrees, giggling. He does appreciate the kindness, even if it’s not exactly what he wanted…
And that is how they end up in the barn that weekend, Caramel trying topping for the first time as he and Mac spit-roast Trenderhoof in a sweaty, sticky corner of hay bales. :3
I appreciate pastel colour schemes, but I’m never happy with it when I try to do them, somehow…
Must get back into arting after being away for a week, so have some of my second-favourite big guy-little guy ship. ^^
*hugs* I’m so sorry
*snuggles* Shhhh It’ll be okay.
*hugs* I’m really super sorry, my friend.
:( I’m really sorry to hear that
*hugs you too* I’m really sorry to hear that and I wish for you the very best. I’m really so sorry to hear that. >.<”
Feeling a bit better (but not really) today - it’s just that it was such a perfect job, and would have let me live and work in downtown Toronto. And more importantly, would have let me feel stable and confident enough to do something about my crippling loneliness, too. So that hurt more than usual, for a generically unhelpful rejection e-mail. :(
Regardless! Thank you, everyone, for your kindness. I really appreciate it, and I feel like I might actually accomplish something today. *Hugs for all.*
Oh, no. :( I just got home and must go to bed shortly, so this will not be a comprehensive list, but here are some recommendations.
