Someone got a new desk ornament today!
So, a little package from Amazon arrived today that brought a big ol’ smile to my face. :)
I have been reading IDW’s excellent MLP comic books for a while now. Even though I own the individual issues, I love trade paperbacks too, especially since I’d prefer not to loan my not-as-durable individual issues to curious friends if possible. They even made the logo on the front cover sparkly!
If you’re a brony who hasn’t been reading the comics, now is a fine time to start. The artwork is excellent, and the storytelling is right up there with the best episodes of the show without the inhibitions of a TV-Y rating or product placement.
My thoughs and prayers to the people of Boston. My own state was brought to its knees by a domestic terrorist in December, but I pray that the people of Boston will have the strength Connecticut did not, and that whoever is responsible will be brought to justice.
I can’t help but feel like this is somehow directed at me… :P

MLP Twi & Pinkie official Japanese dub in TAF <3
Amazing… Pinkie sounds exactly the same in Japanese!
Just a quick practice sketch I did of Luna in preperation for the next entry on Spitfire’s tumblr. I don’t draw her very often, but she is indeed best princess.
As most of you are likely aware, yesterday, in my home state of Connecticut only a few miles from where I live, there was a horrible atrocity which took the lives of 27 people, most of whom were small children. While it may be tempting for us to spend our every waking hour meditating on our anger, or make wild speculations as to how such a tragedy might have been prevented, I don’t want to go there. The monster who did this wanted only one thing: to spread his misery and terror as far as he could, so as to break the spirits of as many people as possible.
The murderer was too cowardly to face justice and chose to end his own life, and now he must face God’s courtroom. While he may no longer be a physical danger, he managed to sow the seeds of agony, sorrow, and fear, with the perverse desire for us to cultivate them until they grow into weeds that will destroy us all. The victims deserve better than for us to give the man who stole their lives and happiness the very thing that he wanted. The battle is not over, and we cannot let the forces of evil prevail.
I implore of you all to do something kind for someone else this weekend, no matter how big or small the deed may be. It can be anything, and I will leave it up to you to decide what you feel fits you. Most importantly of all, pray for the grieving families.
Also, if this week’s entry of the Spitfire tumblr seems a little more somber than usual, please note that it is entirely coincidental, as it was drawn several days ago. I felt like I should post it anyway, so I hope you will still enjoy reading it.
