Heya howdy! So I apologize for the lack of activity, y’all. I’ve been so focused on my preparation for Bronycon (amongst other things) that I’m barely on tumblr or DA lately. Thankfully that means I’ll have some stuff to show off, though, so to start that off, here ya go!

This is what I’ve been working on for the past couple of days. MLP lunchboxes! I sold some last year and they did pretty well, but this year I wanted them to look better so I really tried to work with them. I had a few problems here and there, but in the end they came out lookin’ pretty good I think. :3

The lunchboxes I’m taking with me this year are the ones seen here: Celestia, Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Luna, and a Rainbow Power lunchbox of the Mane 6. There was supposed to be two more (background ponies lunchbox and villains lunchbox) but I ultimately decided to wait on making them until later.

Of the ones here, I think the Rainbow Power one is my favorite. C:

Buuuuut yeah. I hope you guys like the results! ^.^

When Emelin was 13, she asked the mayor of her rural Guatemalan town to find ways to help girls stay in school and get better health care. He laughed out loud. “You are wasting my time; you should go home,” he told Emelin and her friend Elba, who had come with her.

That was then. On Tuesday of this week, Emelin, now 15, spoke by invitation at the United Nations in the “Every Woman Every Child” program presented as part of the Commission on the Status of Women. She sat — and spoke — alongside U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Melinda Gates, co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, about the obstacles girls face in her community and how she and Elba persuaded the mayor to implement and fund policies that would help.

There is something about words.  In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner.  Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts.  Inside you they work their magic.

NNT Week Day 2: Favorite Villain

~ Helbram ~

He suffered so much, he was a puppet, he loved humans, he was King’s best friend, he was a perfect being.

But as a villain (outside the circumstances) he was super cool! his powers, his sassy personality and a very sad past, he was a perfect rival for King, he survived at Diane’s deadly attack (after recovers her Gideon), as a Holy Knight was respected, almost killing Diane (She’s very powerful!)

Anyway, He’s a cutie pie, my baby suffered so much and he only wants to learn more about the world and had a tragic end. I love him so much, but i repeat, he as a villain was very hard to defeat and powerful! <3

Have another Rainbow Power redesign as per mah headcanon! :3 Ya’ll seemed to have enjoyed how I portrayed Twilight, and Pinkie was probable one of the most requested to be seen next as far as the rest of the Mane 6 goes, so here she go! I’ll eventually draw all of them, of course, but I may continue to base it on who ya’ll wanna see next up until the very last one.

Anyway, here’s good ol’ Pinkie Pie in her Rainbow Power form. Of all the Mane 6, she’s probably gonna be the one who’s the least changed aside from not giving her absolutely huge hair. It’s mainly because of the girls, the stripes in her hair already sorta-kinda looks like the rainbow-streak I’m giving them in their stead. Aw well! As per Pinkie, she was a bunch of fun to draw, and I think the design came out okay. I also drew her a little chubbier ‘cause I can. :D

Like the rest of the girls, Pinkie gains a dorsal and markings as one of the physical manifestations of her increased magical power, as well as of course the Rainbow streaks and a rainbow ring circling her pupils. The only difference being that hers are a little more vibrant than the rest ‘cause… of all the girls (yes, including Rainbow), I think her colors being the most vibrant fits her character pretty well. Her original design, aside from Twilight, made the most sense because if there’s anyone who’d be pretty out there, it’d be Pinkie. And it works very well for her. x3

I forgot to add them (I will later) but one of the other unifying traits all the girls have is, when their cutie marks are altered and glowing in this form, they gain little “stars” of magic that surrounds the mark similarly to how Twilight’s cutie mark already does. There will be five stars in total surrounding their cutie mark, to represent the bound they have with each other. C:

As for Pinkie’s  magical prowess in this state, it’d be obvious that she has a power-boost like the rest of the girls, but for some reason I think what is possibly boosted the most in this form for Pinkie is her stamina and speed. She’s already super-fast on the ground, but in this form she’d have speed that’d rival Fili-Second’s speed (appropriate, given that’s who Pinkie was in the Power Ponies episode xD) The increase of stamina and speed brings about a new way of how she can utilize her magic, such as running in circles and create a mini-tornado, huge gusts of wind from simply running by, and a refined “wind blade”, an ability Pinkie always knew even without the Rainbow Power but didn’t use or practice much due to the generally violent nature behind it.

Speaking of magic! If anyone’s curious about how I view magic and the magic of the Mane 6 in general, you can check it out here.

AAaaaaand that’s all for now. So you’ve seen Pinkie, and Twlight… who’s Rainbow Power form would you guys like to see next? Rainbow, Rarity, Applejack, or Fluttershy? Let me know! ^.^

Until then, I hope you guys enjoy this! :3

At first glance, it’s a typical scene: Two teenage girls lean their heads together engrossed in conversation as they munch on tuna salad on a bagel and fries.

But listen to Memory Banda, 18, from Malawi and 16-year old Achie (whose last name is not provided because of her age) from Ethiopia, and you’ll hear an earful about a lot of things you wouldn’t expect. They’re talking about how tough it is to be young and female in Africa. They’re discussing how child marriage and female genital mutilation are just two of the obstacles to girls getting an education. They’re commiserating about the challenge of getting health care and of finding jobs that will let them lead a better life.

But they’re not just griping. Memory and Achie each push for change in their communities.
