But if I don't turn it in I will be TARDY D:

I already identified with Twilight Sparkle way too much, but now I realise she is basically me as a purple unicorn. I, too, have had gigantic panic attacks about being tardy, although the threat wasn't magic kindergarten but unspecified horrible crushing failure.

Why is it

Why is it indeed, livejournal, that during a series of Doctor Who that has been packed with more emotion than any preceding one (lost babies! True Love Conquers All! Possible DEAAAAATH! Time Displacement! Etc!) as well as the summer I spent reading a Song of Ice and Fire (also known as Emotional Gutpunch: The Series) AND the end of AC:Brotherhood the thing in recent media that has affected me most was grey!Twilight Sparkle after her friends had abandoned her, standing under a raincloud and crying?

I mean

I'm not sure I can even watch that episode again. That was just too distressing.

(Everything turned out okay, though! And it was a great episode, don't get me wrong: I think I'm just rather emotionally overinvested in pony friendship)

EDIT: Tonight's Doctor Who, by the way, was lovely until the last ten minutes or so. Matt Smith is a wonderful actor and I wish to give him all the hugs, and I am heartily sick of River Song.

With the advent of a new season, sometimes someponies feel like their interest in things might have waned. Maybe they're not so interested in dressing up, or they remembered that they're no good at fair isle knitting and had to get another pony to help them (thanks mum!). Maybe they think they look stupid, or they've never worn a wig before.

However, if you persist and give it a go, you might be surprised by the results!


Your very faithful student, Twilight Sparkle.

p.s series 2 episode 1 ROCKED.

Wig arrived yesterday! Taking pictures today because I have a stinking cold but I look a lot better today thanks to not spending half the night barfing. Please note iphone artfully positioned to hide nose :p The wig is really nice. It's intended for Stocking cosplay but I think it works pretty well for Twilight too.

Soooooo yesterday the postman delivered something (or rather, someone) very exciting!

(She's reading Descartes on literary theory, there).

Yes, in order to motivate myself to finish my first draft, I ordered a Twilight Sparkle to help me with my studies. She's adorable and tiny (my time-travelling Pinkie Pie looms over her) and her hair is incredibly frustrating as it is not show-accurate AT ALL. I know that little girls will want to brush it, but how hard could it have been to give her a straight fringe and get the mane colours the right way round? I have been looking at hair restyling tutorials (in the process finding this amazing custom Celestia, holy crap) but I'm nervous about taking scissors and boiling water to my Twilight as I had to order her from Portugal.

Anyway, here's one final photo of Twilight in situ on my shelf, featuring some more of my nerd crap.

My questions! )

Well, here I am at home writing what is turning out to be the goofiest dissertation ever on Wonder Woman and classical mythology. Did I just do a critique of her original costume and its echoes of hoplite armour? Yes I did! Do I need to rethink my life and my choices? Probably! Am I going crazy because I've only written 2,000 words and it needs to be 20,000 and I've never written anything that long in my life oh Hera help me I am never going to get this done aaaaugh?

I'll let you draw your own conclusions :/

Anyway the real reason I wanted to post is because I wanted to share this bit of pony coincidence with y'all.

See this? I got this pony from my friends as a joke present. Four years ago.

Look at the colour. Look at the cutie mark.

That is Pinkie Pie existing four years before she was invented by Lauren Faust because she had to make up new ponies for the show as the old trademarks had lapsed.

I guess I shouldn't really be surprised.
