I Am Definitely Getting Back into Ponies after Seeing This!


Holy horse, it’s like someone at Hasbro read my mind.

I don’t know what it is about me and movies and TV, but sometimes I think someone in Hollywood is spying me. I’ll be all like, “You know what the world needs? A Battlestar Galactica remake.” And then it happens. Or I’ll be all, “A new King Kong, but still set in the 1930s, would be awesome.” I had cause to regret that one.

A few years ago, I was all, like, “You know what this My Little Pony franchise needs? A movie that has elaborately detailed fantasy environments instead of the minimalist Flash animation of the cartoon show, where maybe Equestria gets invaded by some bad guys with airships, and the ponies have to go to Aquastria to get aid from the seaponies or something.”

I wish I had actually written that online somewhere so I could show you a link to prove it, but I didn’t. But still … holy crap.

I wet my pants when I saw this preview. Only a little bit, though. And it only happened once.

This and my novel is getting published. Best. Week. Ever.

    Now that you’re getting back into ponies, I ought to mention that, at the end of a poem that I just published on FIMFiction, I included a brief reference to you at the end. But, knowing that finals for Summer school are on the horizon, you probably don’t have time to read 4,388 words.

    I was unwilling to admit my interest right up until I saw Michael Pena’s name on the film. (It’s probably good if I actually sit and watch this thing, lest the internet affect my opinion indelibly).
