After the Fact: The Lover
Big Macintosh. A stallion of few words but great actions. Strong but gentle and filled with love, he's a great example of the Lover Archetype.

Check out the video and see how many words for love apply. Hope you enjoy!

Work progresses on my review for The Mane Attraction. Part of that requires having a staging background and so I've created one!

Although this is specialized to the episode I'm hopeful folks can re-purpose it as needed. Be a shame if Ponyville built this once and then never used it again.

Been too long since I updated this. Time to fix that!

If the wording for this looks different, it's because I'm following the advice from "Sins of the Many" by :iconpony-berserker:. Thought I'd try a different approach to word bubbles and if it looks good I'll go back and correct the previous parts.

Thanks for reading and if you'd like to check out Pony Berserker's comic you can find it here:

Hey everyone. It's been some time since my last update so I wanted to give a heads-up on some changes moving forward.

It's been a busy time. Projects like Pinkie Pie Says Goodnight comics, articles for Equestria Daily, Bronies React, Team Fortress 2: Analysis Anarchy, Curse of Strahd livestreams, Ponyfinder, the MBS Show, and several conventions have demanded much time and energy. The cost of this has been low productivity for my own videos. I've not forgotten my joke/self-fulfilling prophecy to review Friendship Games this year.

Recently I read an article on The Differences Between Busy and Productive People. Looking at my own life I think I'm falling more into the former. I don't regret the projects I've undertaken, but I also recognize their cost. As such, I'm making an effort to reduce my list of commitments so I can refocus on After the Fact videos.

Part of this change is reducing the number of collaboration videos. Collabs triple the production time as they require new OC vectors for various scenes and often more elaborate setups. Because of this, the next review video on "What About Discord?" will be my last collab for the foreseeable future. My intent is to finally complete season 5 reviews and go through season 6 without collaborations.

I apologize to :iconsketchychangeling: and :iconjoshscorcher: that the comic reviews we had slated will not move forward.

This also means putting my energy to better use at conventions. In the past, I've been a part of reviewer Q&A panels. These panels often featured at least 4 reviewers or more. The result being that it takes ten minutes for us to answer each question. I don't view this as an effective way to talk about starting a Youtube channel or interacting with our fellow fans. I apply to have a vendor table at each convention now so if folks have any questions you can find me there or at the panels I host. I won't be participating in future reviewer/analyst Q&A panels.

To be clear, this is not a declaration that I am leaving the fandom or abandoning all projects. I will still feature Pinkie Pie wishing everyone a happy weekend the night before a new episode. I still plan to post on Equestria Daily and present panels. The focus is not to cut away what I enjoy sharing with fellow fans, but to recognize the limits on time and energy and work within those bounds.

Thanks for your patience and I hope you will enjoy my future work!

I became a My Little Pony fan in the latter part of 2011, well into the show's second season. As a latecomer, I'm in a strange situation. The online community is pretty unknown to me, and none of my local friends are fans.

I admire the creativity surrounding MLP, in both the show itself and the creativity of its fans. I created this account to focus my own expressions. Keep checking back and I hope everyone enjoys my drawings!

The train finally reaches its station this year for Friendship is Magic, but it is not the show ending, simply being complete. The journey will end and be remembered as we move on to the next train.

Hello Silver, In September 2016 I asked if you could look at my art and tell me what you thought of it. It's now 3 years later and I wanted to ask that same question again. I'll understand if you can't at this moment, but I just wanted to ask. It would mean a lot if you could give me a few pointers of my art if you could. Thank you

So Silver, I want to know your honest opinion on this matter concerning the women of Dragonball, Dragonball Z, and Dragonball Super (and to a lesser extent the other one) but why do you think it is that the women in those series don't get too much more of a character arc after they've been paired up with a husband?

For example, Chi-Chi and Videl who were both experienced fighters yet just as soon as they became mothers, became more domesticated and didn't serve much of a story focus beyond "mother of said child".

This doesn't apply to a few such as Bulma or Android 18 who have more of a role in the later series (Super to be exact), but why do you think this is? Is it because the others aren't as interesting to write anymore?

I never got to watch the original Dragonball, so I don't have much experience with Chi-Chi before her marriage to Goku.

Yet when I think about Chi-Chi and Videl after their respective marriages, I view it a mistake to judge their value by the ability to fight. Goku is better adapted to life outside of fighting because of Chi-Chi's influence, and I loved Videl's portrayal in Super where she was able to see through a corrupt star's manipulation. They don't enjoy as much screen time but I wouldn't say they're without value.

I too used to doubt Dragonball Z and Super's portrayal of women given that they often stayed back and cared for the children, but the Broly movie drove home a point. In a cast filled with super-powerful fighters who can blow up worlds or manipulate space-time, the women who can talk or shout them down are anchors to–for lack of a better term–humanity. They're a tether that reminds each characters there's life beyond the battle, which is something a warrior cannot afford to lose. So I would say they serve a vital role, even if it can go underappreciated.

While I will still do some episode reviews, I think it'll be a good chance to expand and cover other shows and movies. I've become a big fan of archetypes and recurring themes within fiction. Be fun to trace those through some unlikely sources.

I'm not sure. I enjoy doing them but the weekly demand is draining. I suppose doing one at the start of a month or just for fun would be a better expression. It depends on how things go once the show officially ends. Don't want to plan too far in advance and forget to enjoy the season itself.
