About me.

I'm not especially artistic, but I appreciate the art of others in a kind of "I wish that I could do that" kind of way. I dabble in sketching using plain old pencil on paper, but my main these days Digital. A little photo editing, and a little Photoshop.

I work extensively in Daz Studio\Poser. You can see a couple of the renders that I have done on this page, but most of what I do goes elsewhere. This page is mostly here for my web comic. It's cheap and cheerful, and not my best work by any stretch of the imagination, but I guess that's what happens when you need 6 or 7 renders per page. It's a little bit about Alien Abduction, and a lot about how much high school and small towns can suck if you aren't one of the pod people.

More to the point. I'm a committed non conformist. I don't do "peer pressure", and I hate being told what to do or what to think, and I have a personal beef with anything that calls itself "mainstream". Be it art, culture or science. Particularly when said "Mainstream" spends more time putting down people who disagree with it through cheap shots and ridicule, than it does defending its perspective through evidence and or reasoned argument.

Although I resemble it sometimes, I'd hesitate to call myself a Goth. The Goth scene has become somewhat commercialized over the last 10 years, to the point that stores like Hot Topic are ripping off the Goth look and are selling it as a novelty lifestyle choice called "Emo". Which is what you might get if Goth were brought out by a greeting card company. Emo is just another way of conforming while pretending that you aren't.

Yes, I am thin and pale, yes I do dress in flowing black clothes with a semi-occult on theme (Not that being a Goth has anything to do with the occult, I hasten to add), and no I don't have anything pieced. Not not a nipple, not an eyebrow, not even an ear. That would be too much like conforming for me.

MLP: FiM - Without Magic Page 100
Yay, 100 pages. Not bad going for a comic that was originally only going to be about 15 pages long.

If you notice any errors, please report them on my profile page, rather than here.

Having become disenchanted with her quest to get her magic back (And thus also her Cutie Mark), Twilight has fallen into depression. she's stopped leaving the library, and has stopped caring about pretty much everything.

Silver Jubilee (MLP OC) by PerfectBlue97
Silver Jubilee (MLP OC)
This is Silver Jubilee, an OC who I'm going to introduce on page 113 of Without Magic.

Silver Jubilee is an old friend of Rarity's she comes from Canterlot and her family runs one of the oldest Jewelers in the city. in Human years she would be in her mid-late 60s.

She has a gentle grandmotherly personality, and although she comes from a wealthy family she is very down to earth. Most of this comes from the confidence in knowing that she comes form a family of old money artisans. Ponies that made their fortune through a creative trade rather than off of the backs of other ponies.

She is naturally polite and reserved. She observes most of the traditional etiquette of a high society mare she isn't a slave to them.

Just a short page this week.

This page is basically a three frame montage showing Twilight's level of enthusiasm changing as the comic goes along, starting on Page 92 where Twilight is really enthusiastic, moving to page 95 where she's apprehensive and has far less enthusiasm and ending on page 98, where she's hit rock bottom.

OK, this isn't so much a prediction as an idle thought: Is Starlight Glimmer being set up to replace Twilight Sparkle at the end of season 6?

Yes, I know that it's far to early on in the season to jump to any conclusions, but you have to admit that it is a fascinating idea and it would make a great twist at the end.

When Season 1 began Twilight was a socially reclusive student of indeterminate age. The show's creator has said that she's a "Young Adult", but that doesn't really say very much. The American Library Association defines a young adult as being somebody between the ages of 12 to 18: Somebody who is "young" but not yet an adult. Whilst other areas categories young adults as being people aged 18 to 25. Sometimes 18 to 35: People who who are at the younger end of the adult spectrum.

Either way, her age has never been codified in either show or comic canon.

She was academically brilliant, but young, socially unaware, and prone to episodes of anxiety. Gradually, as the show has gone on Twilight has matured. She has grown in confidence, she is more socially aware, and her bouts of anxiety have become less intrusive (No more fears of Magic Kindergarten, at least).

At the end of season 3 Twilight's understanding of friendship, and her magical aptitude, reached such a level that she was able to finish a spell that even Starswirl the Bearded could not complete. She graduated from being Princess Celestia's student and became a full fledged Alicorn Princess.

At the time, fans were worried that Twilight was on the verge of becoming a Mary Sue: A character who was too perfect. If her magic was approaching the level of Starswirl's, and her understanding friendship was approaching that of Princess Celestia's, what could be left?

Fortunately season 4 largely sidestepped this issue by having only 4 real "Twilight episodes". The two part season premier and the two part season end, in which Twilight faced challenges that were so ... challenging that even Princess Celestia could not overcome them (Including a 100ft rampaging Bull Centaur whose horns seemed to posses some rather phallic qualities). For most of the rest of the season Twilight was relegated to a supporting role. Similarly in season 5, Twilight largely existed to provide exposition and to dispense advice. This isn't to say that she wasn't an important character, but the show didn't challenge her in the same was as it had done during the first 3 seasons. Yes, there were some exceptions to this (Such as the excellent Amending Fences), but her old uncertainties weren't present in most episodes (In Party Pooped, she was spectacularly upstaged by Pinkie in the Anxiety stakes).

Aside from the Tirek Incident, the only time that Twilight was really challenged, and visited by her old fears and doubts, was when when contemplating her role as a princess, and when facing Starlight Glimmer: An obviously older and more experienced Unicorn who Twilight acknowledged as being one of the most magically proficient that she'd ever met.

This leads me on to season 6.

By season 6 several years have past. It's not clear how many. At least 2, possibly as many as 4. Twilight's age still remains uncertain, but she has obviously grown emotionally. More importantly, graduated from being Princess Celestia's student to being Starlight Glimmer's mentor.

So, here we are. We have an strong and confident Alicorn Princess mentoring a magically talented but socially awkward kohai in friendship. The latter has even moved to Ponyville, where she knows nopony else, and has to put down new roots in new surroundings.

Sound familiar?

The next logical step would be for Starlight Glimmer to gradually be moved into Twilight's role. For her to experience the same kind of dilemma's and uncertainties as Twilight experienced when she first began to interact with other ponies. And for Twilight to move into Princess Celestia's role, issuing advice and offering exposition, rather than intervening directly. Much as she did in episodes such as Rainbow Falls and Twilight Time.

Yes, Starlight and Twilight are coming at this from different directions. Twilight was inexperienced in friendship and social interactions because she isolated herself and saw other ponies as being a distraction form her studies. While Starlight believed that she was above other ponies and was more concerned with manipulating them than she was befriending them.

To push this conjecture further, we could even see Twilight dropping out of the show altogether. Sending Starlight Glimmer into a spiral of self doubt in which she wonders if she can ever live up to the reputation of her mentor. Maybe a new villain emerges and imprisons Twilight (ALA Princess Celestia and Princess Luna in the episode Princess Twilight Sparkle). Forcing Starlight to take Twilight's place as the Element of Magic in the Mane 6. Maybe Twilight is sent somewhere far away for an extended period of time (The next Equestria Girls movie?). Twilight may even be called on to take over from Princess Celestia - It's corny, but it would be a good way to get her out of the way for a while.

Could the long promised My Little Pony movie of 2017 see Twilight pulling an Optimus Prime, leaving Starlight to become the new Rodimus?

I'm not saying that it's probable, or that it would necessarily be good, but I could certainly see Twilight taking a back seat to Starlight in Season 6 in order to revitalize the show, and to bring back some of the elements that made season 1 and 2 such masterpieces.

If you think that all of this sounds far fetched, you need only look to Rainbow Rocks to see how quickly Sunset Shimmer was parachuted into the vacuum left by Pony World Twilight, and into much the same role. An academically brilliant character filled with anxiety and self doubt, discovering the magic of friendship for the fist time.

After all, Starlight Glimmer is probably closer to Sunset Shimmer than any other character in the show.
