Pinkie has been very very busy and asked YOU to help her out with throwing this party to celebrate Inksy moving to Ponyville (And my 200+ subsribers! and 10k pageviews!)
SO! In general do your depiction of that party! Be sure to include Inksy, your ponysona, and a few others!
NOTE: You may interpret the ponies in anthro, furry or human form as well, just be sure to leave some pony ears, cutie mark, and tails!
For some inspiration here is a little on the life of Inksy and her friends!

Happy ending for a straySo the stray cattle dog named Tasha (see previous 2 journals) went home today just before noon.Happy ending for a stray2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As the owner approached her she was as skittish as ever, but then she began to stare, and came up to the door of the kennel. He opened the kennel and sat down and the dog crawled over and put her head in his lap.
By the time they left she was calmly standing up on him seeking attention, her tail went from tucked to relaxed, and she jumped right into the car as if she had done so only yesterday.
After 2 years of being missing, likely running feral, she remembered him.
A phone call hours later brought more good news.
His wife cried upon seeing the dog, so grateful to have her back.
Their toy poodle, whom Tasha grew up with, at first did not seem to know her but then it's tail began to wag and the little dog got all happy... the poodle remembered her!
Their new dog, a cattle dog mix they rescued long after Tasha went missing, seems to be doing well, not exactly friends but not enemies, which in

My belly will grow and proudly proclaim my devotion.
My appetite will become greedier, allowing me to eat even more.

Desktop PoniesAs some of you may know, there's an adorable little program called 'Desktop Ponies' which gives you the ability to have ponies running all over your screen on your computer....Some even make sounds and interact with other ponies! You can even add your OCs to it as well!

Gluttony is really not a sin!So in many of the stories I write, I make gluttony out to be more than a little sinful.Gluttony is really not a sin!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And isn't that part of the fun of all this -- to enjoy the good feelings of being so ba-a-a-a-a-ad!
Many Christians, though, look down upon us gluttons as some children of the devil or something just too horrible to contemplate. This is nothing more than fat hatred -- and an inability to have fun or let others have fun.
Many will recount that gluttony is considered one of the "Seven Deadly Sins". In reality, though, I think gluttony is not a sin at all. In fact, it may be a virtue.
A few excerpts from an old article on gluttony as a sin (I have put my comments in parentheses):
According to a 1998 Purdue University study, obesity is associated with higher levels of religious participation. Broken down by creed, Southern Baptists have the highest body-mass index on average, Catholics are in the middle, and Jews and other non-Christians are the lowest. When t

F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.

1. First of all, have an idea! There's no point in writing if you don't know what you're going to write about, whether it's fanfiction, original fiction, etc. Trust me, I've had my share of stories that crashed and burned because I didn't plan it out. Now I'm not saying you need to write an entire plot diagram illustrating every little thing that happens, just something simple: a beginning, middle, and end. Your beginning should introduce your characters, the setting, the main conflict.&

I believe that Minecraft is the future of massive multiplayer games, and I'm surprised that none of the big developers/publishers have cottoned onto it yet.
They look at Minecraft and think its success is down to its business model, or to its blocky, retro charm.
It's down to the fact that you get out of it what you put into it.
With a MMORPG, there are pre-scripted quests. With Minecraft, you set the quests yourself or others.
User created content is the key. All you have to do is provide the players with the tools to build.
There are two types of gamer: wall builders and wall breakers.
Wall builders are the ones that spend an age in an RTS game getting their base just right. They play SimCity and act as Dungeon Master during an RPG.
Wall breakers are the type to follow the mission brief. They get set a quest and they follow it. They're the Call of Duty crowd and they're never more happy than when
It's not a birthday without RAAAMBLES.Heeeey folks.It's not a birthday without RAAAMBLES.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, thanks for all the birthday well-wishing. Veritable.. mountains of well-wishing. Though I'd be just as content postponing my birthday until next year. And then maybe the year after that, and after that..
A year older and a year wiser. Well, the latter is debatable. But definitely a year older! This year has been a wild, satisfying, disappointing, exciting one. It marks my first total year as a freelancer, which has been simultaneously one of the most liberating and terrifying career leaps I've ever made. Thankfully, the studio I've ended up working with for the entire year has been a very welcoming one. The workload can be immense, but outside of being paid, there are few rewards greater than seeing your work animated in a game after toiling on it for hours. Getting to visit Barcelona was another fantastic perk.
I really can't complain at all about work, this year. I've worked with the guys from Wayforward, Vigil, did a bit of here-and-there for my old stu

Make love handles, not war!With the passage of another Memorial Day . . . let's honor those who serve.Make love handles, not war!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Make love handles, not war!!
What we can all do to end the war in Afghanistan -- and wars everywhere -- is support a soldier boy or girl in getting too plump to any longer be fit enough for the service.
If you know someone who is in the service, once they get back in the states, or before they get a chance to go overseas again, make it your private mission to cook for them and feed them, fatten them up a little. Our husbands, our wives, parents, kids, friends and lovers do not deserve to die in a meaningless war.
Let's help them get nice and plump, so they can stay safe here at home.
In the 60s, the flowerchildren said, "Make love, not war!"
Now, we will shout, "Make love handles, not war!"
Already, the armed forces are having a difficult time recruiting, but if we can fatten up those who might wish to sign up, we can put an end to this useless war... Or at least, we can end the war for those we love tho

Little bit of a rant about DA and PopularityGosh, I'm thinking most of you guys are coming into this with the misconception that this journal is going to be me whining and screaming a tantrum about how popular people are "rude" and "bullies", and other equally hypocritical notions. But no, that's not what this is about at all, everyone can be mean and make mistakes sometimes. Everyone has their own little things about them that make them seem like their annoying or a bully. Just, for popular people it's more pronounced, more people see them and they always have to watch their back so of course you're going to see all their flaws, especially if you already don't like them to begin with.Little bit of a rant about DA and Popularity2 months ago in Personal More Like This
And I get this. I understand you can't be the perfect person, I get it guys so this isn't what this journal is going to be on. This journal is going to be on something I like to call, Popularity vs. Community.
Now you guys might be wondering, what the heck do you mean by that Harmony?
