@asksweetcream here. I set this account up for those that want to leave messages and submit things for Rusty in a place where it is central.

@technomod is on her way to Ohio and this is my small way of doing something I know I can do.



@askrustynail is currently in a coma. This account is meant to be a central location where you can submit things for him, leave messages, tag in this account and we will reblog it, etc. @technomod will read them to him and it will be here for when he wakes up so he can read these in person as well when recovering. I will take the hopeful angle at this. I don’t know the details yet, and it will be up to @technomod to share if she so chooses. This is hard for her, and Rusty’s family beyond what I can imagine. Right now, even the smallest well-wishes are valued immensely.

@technomod will be handed the password to this account when she is settled in Ohio and will be able to convey and read the messages you leave for Rusty to him.

If you have any music or audio you think he might enjoy, feel free to suggest it.

If you want to draw him something, submit it and it will be described to him.

If there are any updates, it will be up to tech to post them, of course, all with discretion for Rusty’s privacy.

In short, feel free to:

*Send messages, submit things, or tag this blog to reblog. If you’d like a message to be private (that is, with me, Tech and rusty the only ones potentially seeing it) put (private) before the entry and we will not post it.

When it comes to physical items, we have no where to place them right now but may gather them in the future for a care package. If you drew or made something  - take a picture of it and submit it for now. 

Rusty and Tech appreciate your heartfelt prayers and wishes for his recovery.

Thank you all.

 Much love.

Corrupted Shining Armor

[ Sweet Cream and I were bouncing around the popular fanon idea of Shining Armor being corrupted by King Sombra, so she drew up a lovely picture(go follow her!) and I provided some voice over. Needed to post something here anyway.]

[ Just a ‘what if’ monologue of Shining Armor post-corruption, after he’s fully given in to Sombra’s influence and taken over his role as a ruthless tyrant. I didn’t give him as much 'surfer voice’ in this since this is considerably darker than his canon self, SO YEAH. Thanks for listening! ]

Rusty Nail’s Recipes

Dear Drinkers. It is July the Tenth. Which means something, here at The Pony Keg.

You see; once upon a time, it was 2011.

We hadn’t yet recovered from the Housing Market Crash, I’d recently been accepted back into college to finish my degree, and for MONTHS, I’d had friends ( @askcharliefoxtrot ) telling me about a cartoon I needed to watch, about magic, and friendship, and colorful cartoon horses.

I’d resisted. I’d derided. And then I watched it, and, well, I was boned.

July the Tenth, Two Thousand and Eleven. Inspired by blogs such as the brilliant, but sadly gone Ask Pinkamena Diane Pie, and @asklilmissrarity , I took to Tumblr, and I created Rusty Nail. I created The Pony Keg. I created the Everfree Distillery. I created the Four Left Hooves Brewery.

And I created, what I’d later learn, was the third OC Pony to ever be Ask-Blogged on Tumblr. Only a scant three months after the first Tumblrpon blog ever, Ask Apple Bloom. (Thanks go to @fishermod​ for the data)

Dear Drinkers. Ladies and Gentlemen. Genders of all Spectrums.

Welcome to The Pony Keg’s Five Year Anniversary.

I cannot even begin to count, or name, or thank all of the brilliant people who have left their mark on me, and my blog, over the years. @askcharliefoxtrot​ deserves deep thanks. @askmerriauthor​ , for drawing their dumb horse dating my dumb horse, and, inadvertently, leading me to start the recipes, rather than screw up their storyline. Thank you for that; its been one of the best things to happen to this blog. @asksweetcream​ , You relentless flirt. You were one of the ones to really help shape Rusty’s personality from a booze-horse, into what he is today. @askpenwright​ , and @jumped-out-pinkieanswers​ , for helping me realize that my blog didn’t have to be RP, or art. That my blog could be whatever, and however I wanted to interact with the community. @egophiliac​ and @ask-wiggles​ for being continual, relentless inspirations to do better, to be better, and to never be satisfied with what it is that I am doing; to strive, as a creator, to be better.

And @technomod​ . My significant other for nearly three years now (We’re comin’ up on October.~) Met me because of this blog. You have. You have done so very much, to keep me, to help me, to guide me. From the very bottom of my heart, thank you.

And so, Dear Drinkers, I present to you The Pony Keg’s Five Year Anniversary Honoring! Today’s honoree has had a rough go of it. Hungry. Lonely. Flea Bitten. Lost at Sea. Nearly drowned. And now, stranded somewhere that French is, in fact, the Lingua Franca. It’s a good thing that artistic talent is coin wherever you travel, and our poor little misfit has that in droves. The other thing they have in abundance is a far, far rarer coin, and one that will pay their way to whatever end the eventually reach.


Ladies and Gentlemen…

It’s Crayon, the Homeless Artist! @ask-crayon-the-homeless-artist​ .

They have had it ROUGH. Life has been shitting on them from just about each and every direction it can, and, well, even if they’re too young for it yet, I figured they deserved something good, to match their relentless and boundless drive to survive.

Buckle in for this one, folks; occasionally, I get to make a recipe that makes me happy, even if it’s not going to be practical. And Crayon, dang, you get a good one.

A Crayon (The Homeless Artist)

  1. Beefeater Gin
  2. Lime Juice (A LOT of Lime Juice.)
  3. Bottled tonic water
  4. A Lemon
  5. A glass
  6. A Knife (You’ll want a sharp, thin one, like a paring knife, or a scaling knife)
  7. A spoon
  8. Food Coloring in each of the ROYGBIV colors.
  9. One Verbena Blossom

Special Equipment:

An ice cube tray. A Hammer. A Medical Grade Liquid Nitrogen Aerosol Sprayer. Liquid Nitrogen.

Making a Crayon (The Homeless Artist).

  1. Put Gin and Tonic Water into glass in a 2 parts Gin to 3 parts Tonic Water mixture
  2. Cut end off Lemon.
  3. Hollow out Lemon.
  4. Fill Ice Cube tray with Lime Juice..
  5. Put two to four drops of food coloring into each of the cube-sockets. Mix into Lime Juice. Create ROYGBIV Lime Juice. One color per socket.
  6. Freeze Lime Juice.
  7. Remove colored Lime Cubes.
  8. Smash with hammer, creating shards of ice.
  9. Place end of Nitrogen Sprayer at bottom of glass, and pull sprayer back upwards, spraying into drink. If done correctly, you have just made a Gin And Tonic Slush.
  10. Spoon Slush into Lemon.
  11. Top Slush with Rainbow Lime Ice.
  12. Decorate with Verbena Blossom (Do Not Eat)
  13. Use Spoon.
  14. Drink/Eat!

You’ve just finished making a Crayon The Homeless Artist!

This creates a very traditional Gin and Tonic, using the two most common garnishes for the drink in exceptionally novel ways; one as an ice-decoration, one as the container from which you consume the concoction. It’s an unusual twist on what should be an expected experience. Much like our honoree. Also, the sheer quantity of citrus in this should probably help poor Crayon stave off Rickets.

You may want to meander over to . You might find a newly created Mod-Blog I was peer-pressured into creating after five years without one. Do not expect deep truths. Expect snark and cat-videos.

Keep sending in suggestions as to who you’d like to see made into a drink, and Stay Thirsty, Dear Drinkers!

Here’s to another Five Wonderful Years!

Keep in mind that everyone’s OC may not be completely accurate. I had to simplify certain things, usually small things, however.
