Send me “alt!” and I’ll introduce you to a character I’ve rped in the past, want to play in the future or are currently playing somewhere else!

For a very brief time, I was into the pony scene (yes, it’s true), and I had a blog for and RPed as Pavonine, the Changeling Prince, an OC bent on the destruction of Queen Chrysalis due to some differeng opinions in managerial approaches. He was creepy and lived in the abandoned mines under Canterlot and kidnapped people to be his minions. 

Seriously demented, and so, so fun. I loved this Pav. If only I weren’t so scared of the current state of the fandom…

I take pleasure in enjoying these simple things that have come to represent vacations at the way station – Susannah’s cheer, carpeted floors and myriad pillows, not sleeping alone, car rides, gigantic department stores with kitschy treasures to be amazed by, oatmeal with dinosaur eggs that hatch as it is made. Childlike pleasures for the child god.
