The Three TravelersTHE THREE TRAVELERS
being an instructive tale for colts and fillies
with analysis by Archivist the Crown Princess Twilight Sparkle
commentary by Her Royal Highness, Princess Celestia
A long time ago, a long way from here, there was a long road upon which three ponies traveled.
There was a merchant, seeking better markets, pulling his wagon of goods.
There was a magistrate, seeking a new town, for she had lost an election.
There was a mediciner, seeking new cures and herbs, for he wished to advance his skill.
The three were as different as sun, moon and stars, yet they had become good friends as the miles had come and gone. They would speak, but not boast. They would discuss, but not argue. They would sing, but not criticize. They were ponies as ponies should be. And as will often happen, fortune smiled upon them as a reward... and as a test.
As they set camp, a day's journey away from the city that would someday be Trottingham, the mediciner made a discovery. “C
Heliophilia 2: Secrets Revealed -- Part 1 “…and when I came back, I had these,” finished Twilight Sparkle with a flourish of her wings, the Princess extending her purple pinions for her two guests to see. “I couldn’t believe it at first, but after Princess Celestia showed up and pretty much told me that I wasn’t dreaming it finally sank in: I had become an alicorn, and was now a Princess of Equestria.” The alicorn smiled in a way that was simultaneously sheepish and proud, as if she loved telling the story but still felt a little embarrassed about how self-serving it sounded. “And that’s that – the whole story of how I became a Princess.”
“That’s so awesome, Twilight… wow… I wish I could see that place…” Sunset Shimmer said softly, her vibrant green eye
I Don't Need Friendship
I don't need or want any friends at all
And it's completely and utterly inaccurate to imply that
Friends are shining stars that actually matter to me
I know in my very own heart and soul that
My friends will never stick around or put up with me
Please don't try to convince me that
Friends really do give you the strength to go on
I shall explain to you, in my own opinion that
Friends are the people who genuinely care about me
This, however will unfortunately never apply to me
In this dark, cruel, stagnant monotonous world
Only total and utter cretins will contemplate that
Friends will bring you the sentiment of lifelong euphoria
I would like to be self-evident in saying
treeIt is okay to be getting your hair trimmed for the first time in eighteen months.
It is fine to let yourself inflate a sad story and then another,
like pink gum bubbles
In the direction of anyone who will listen.
You can now chew over the last year and a half of your life
from a distance, when you’re at the hairdressers,
after she notices the short patches by your sideburns with an inquisitive look.
You can hold back the tears with relative ease,
as if telling of someone else’s illness,
rolling the grief around in your mouth like a gobstopper
whist her acrylic nails gently graze the backs of your ears.
You can use an entire palm full of shampoo in the shower,
because caring for yourself is not an indulgence, or a waste.
And you deserve to have a second breakfast sometimes.
Or to buy yourself lotions and perfumes whenever you like,
even if it’s still an attempt to drown out the smell
of his aftershave and metal keys, and that Sakura bathbomb
he bought you on your first
Our generationcigarette smoke
in the wall
we have it all
with dying dreams
(poured down the drain
by languid veins)
the clinking of glasses
and racing hearts,
we cannot stop
what we did start
it's all an escape- a sick paradox:
You are StrongYou are so, so strong.
Whatever you’re going through,
Just keep on
The time it takes
Might be short or long,
But you will find
That perfect place
Where you belong.
Just hold on.
I am YouLife spoke to the void.
"Why do so many hate me? Yet they cling so tightly to my cloak."
Death spoke to the void.
"I am accursed and feared by so many. Yet they all come to me in the end."
Joy spoke to the void.
"I am pursued by all. Yet they find me so elusive."
Hope asked the void:
"Why am I both held so tightly and thrown so easily away?"
War spoke to the void.
"I am what they hate. Yet they cannot live without me."
Peace spoke to the void.
"I am sought by all. Yet they have never found me"
Innocence asked the void:
"Why am I both the first they have and the first they lose?"
Strife asked the void:
"Why am I the one that they hate to love? Yet they still do so love me."
Intellect said to the void:
"I lead them further toward salvation. Yet I also lead them toward destruction."
Madness asked the void:
"Why are those blessed by me the only ones to see the truth?"
Sanity asked the void:
"Why am I both the lense to see and the fog obscuring?"
Sleep said the the void:
"I am necessary to
Dream it. Do it.Dream all you can
But don’t spend all your time sleeping.
Feel all you can
But don’t spend all your time weeping.
If you see a shooting star;
Catch it and run far.
Let its burning light ignite
Your heart, mind and soul.
But also be inspiration;
And you could be
The voice of a generation.
Daydream and scheme
And look beyond
What things seem,
But also do and be;
Allow yourself restraint
As a means of being free.
Dream in reality
As well as in your sleep
And you’ll soon find
Is yours to keep.
Unexpected Feels for ChristmasWas just chilling, listening to "It's a Pony Kind of Christmas" for fun while doing other stuff... when suddenly I get hit by UNEXPECTED FEELS.
It's the season to be jolly! And this album is really cheerful and upbeat. Until THIS THING~!! It's hard not to at least cry on the inside when this song popped up.
Thanks, Applejack -.-
CMC Episode (Spoilers)I'm glad it turned out the way it did, Unintentionally Spreading Happiness is a future where the CMC never split up, based on how they helped Troubleshoes find his real talent. It was the only time they didn't screw up, and it was complex, so I figured their talent was helping others find themselves.
It also means I now have a logo for the CMC head offices and Sweetie Belle's Memorial School for Musical Foals.
MLP: FiM S5 Episode 15 Crusaders of the Lost MarkFirst of all, sorry for the lack of updates. I've been so busy with my web comic: The Hunsters of Salamanstra. I say things are going well for it. Check it out if you like. It's free. Willing to do art trades for my characters.
Now for this episode. All I can say is I didn't expect anything from this episode and BAM! Right in the heart. If you watched the series since season 1, you're in for a treat. I wanted to draw something for it, but mind's blank for the moment.
Last year I was suppose to do a big request stream, but that didn't happen because I was in the hospital and almost lost my arm. Thank goodness that didn't happen. This end of the year I'm planning a big 2 week request stream. It will be a big thank you for all the people who supported me. You can request almost anything, but there will be rules. I want to post most of them on my DA. I'll let you know when the dates happen. Stay tuned for that!
Thank you everyone!

During the past year I was in the army, I've learned THREE important lessons:
1) (oh my, just how frequently we hear this from everywhere and how little attention we give to it). Appreciate what you have
I'm at BABScon! Come say hello if you're here! :DHey everyone!
Alright, so my family and I just got in town and we're so excited for this event! Already there're Bronies everywhere, and every person I've met has been super friendly and welcoming. Tomorrow we'll be setting up at vendor booth H11, so if you're here at the event and you get a chance, I'd love it if you could drop by and say hi!
I'd also like to give a special thanks to the artists who've made this possible. The first of this group is of course :iconnekocrispy:, who created all of the canon ponies that are available as miniatures or full-sized laser cuts. Nekocrispy/CrispyChris has been such a huge supporter of my work in everything from providing all the artistic material I could want to providing me valuable feedback that has shaped my entire creative process. I literally cannot thank him enough! (but I can still try )
Watchers Milestone + EQLA 2015!
I hit 420 watchers this week! With my OC's name being Blazing Beams and all, I've been looking forward to this number as a cheeky little milestone since I started here. I'm just so surprised it came this quickly! Thank you all so much, I truly don't deserve all of the love and support you so regularly show, but oh my gosh is it awesome! I'm sure I say this every time a milestone's come up, but knowing how supportive this DeviantART community is of artisan crafts keeps me motivated to make things you'll love.
And in other news, I'll be attending EQLA 2015! It was sort of a last-minute arrangement, but I'll be helping :icondarkflame75: at booth #29, so if you're going you should absolutely stop by and say hello! It looks like it's going to be a wonderful convention, and the first appearance of Lauren Faust (fyre-flye) since 2012!! Can't wait to see you all there.

Someone sent me a message about how he was sorry about a journal I wrote one year ago (it was about my "anxiety disorder"). So I read my old journals.
It was kind of, depressing.
I'm glad I feel better today, I said before I wasn't sure doing art in my life but man, I've never been that much happy since I'm in artschool.
Never let your dreams be dreams
JUST DO IT.
(also, I really like that Woodkid skin I made two years ago)
