Is this blog dead?
a nice person sent me a message, asking whether this blog was dead or if I was planning to continue it. My answer was something along the lines of what I said here - basically my motivation to draw has been really low for many months but I don’t want to really quit.
In the beginning, I mostly drew to “become popular” and the great feedback I got for my early posts kept me going. But over time I lost interest in drawing for attention, rather found joy in the act of drawing itself, and learned that I really enjoy doing gift art.
Sadly, that phase didn’t last too long, for various reasons such as losing a bit of interest in ponies, being annoyed with the fandom and last but not least my shitty job situation which had a huge negative impact on my life for the last year.
Nevertheless, things have improved lately and I even played with the thought of drawing for this blog again some time. I certainly don’t just want to give it up, even though it’s pretty much an empty shell right now. So, to those who still care about these pretty pegasi and have stuck with the blog hoping for its continuation, thank you very much for your patience and I hope I will not disappoint you forever.
MISSING?! I need to get it back!
The minigame debugging took AGES. Fortunately, it’s there and I can focus on other stuff. Oh, I advanced in my coding skills so much! Hopefully you’ll like it! Again, sorry and thank you for the wait. You guys rule!

(( Ahhh, this is totally amazing <3 Thanks for once again including my blog in one of your specials. This is so cool! Having worked with Flash once and briefly, I can only imagine how much time it took to create this. Great job! ))
Ready for a Show: 1/2
((Hours and hours of work later, finally got this finished. Technically slightly late ‘cause the thing should’ve started by now but eeh. At least it’s done! The second half will go up in a few hours.
And of course, these two are involved. Again. <3))
That’s why nothing happens on this blog, my girls are too busy meddling in the businesses of other ponies! Only the cutest ponies, though.
((Featuring the lovely mares Sandy, Misty, Flitter and Cloudchaser as Fuse’s friends. And also Copper Wings because why not.
While you’re at it, why not go and check out her blog? You know you want to.))
Well he’s a mare magnet, if ya know what I mean.
The way the girls just go to him
Well ya should’ve seen
The guy yeah, he’s got style and it’s plain to see
Smooth hooves and cool bandanas
Mane pomped as tight as can be~
Flitter: The Cakes once offered us this really well-paid job. Advertising their shop for only one day, for 50 Bits each! If only we had known about the catch…
Cloudchaser: Come on, those outfits weren’t near as bad as the ones they gave us that OTHER time.
Flitter: Urgh, don’t remind me.

Did you guys see this thing? My mod blog doesn’t have it (even though it is a main blog as well as this one) and I’m sure it wasn’t there yesterday. Pulls up some neat statistics about followers and notes, something every popularity-obsessed tumblr user like me can totally go crazy over :D
I’m still alive!
Just wanted to let you guys know that this blog is not really dead, but just veeeeeeeery slow right now.
You know the drill, stress at work, low motivation, other things (games, activities) hogging my attention. I still very much love my girls and I’m sure the urge to draw them and answer questions will come back to me eventually, so I just wanted to leave this little note here.
Above you see a WIP I started a while back, answering a question of “What classes would Flitter and Cloudchaser be if they played an RPG?”. Some sort of apology/alibi content until the real stuff continues.
Wishing you all an enjoyable summer and lots of fun on tumblr!
Thank you all for participating in this wonderful journey.
This animation has been planned for hitting 200 watchers (yeah, I’ve hit 180 on tumblr and about 30 on DA, and even if that number might seem trivial, it’s still a lot for me) but while making it I decided to change into a thank you vid.
There are loads of people I did not include as I either lacked their ponysonas or they lacked a tumblr account. For that, I am sorry, but I really wanted to finally release this baby.
The animation is a bit intense at times so you might not get all the expressions and details on the first watch.
You can visit each of the cameoed blogs by choosing an appropriate option at the end of the movie.
It’s about 8MBs so please be patient
Have fun and thank you again!
Gosh, this is so great! Wonderful job and congratulations on your milestone!
And thank you of course for including my girls, they’re adorable ><!
Everyone please check out this awesome animation. I wish I had the patience and motivation to create such a goodie!
Cloudchaser! I heard you has Second name... This is true?
(( I’ll go ahead and answer this OOC, since I have gotten a few questions about this. For those who don’t know, this is about a guide book coming out in june, which includes the following page:
As you can see, Cloudchaser is named Stormwalker here. I find this rather odd, because Cloudchaser was never a fandom name that now got revoked (like Lyra -> Heartstrings). Rainbow Dash calls her by that name in Hurricane Fluttershy, so this is (to me) canon without doubt. There’s of course the option to call her “Cloudchaser Stormwalker” but that just has such a silly ring to it, so for this blog’s canon, I am going to completely ignore this name.
EDIT: Googled a little after TJ mentioned there being an official statement about it and found this. Looks like I should do a story arc about CC having an identity crisis :p (not) So it seems like both names are technically right, but I’ll stick with Cloudchaser anyway. Maybe work in a long-lost twin sister?
If I had the motivation to draw.
Thanks for your attention! ))
