My grandfather passed away this afternoon, I may be a bit hard to reach or out of touch for a little while. Please understand, thank you.
Found the jacket.
Also made it out to Ponyville, which I think was a relief for the local weather team. It has admittedly been a little while since cloud shipments came in on time. between my absence and the foul-ups that came in afterward, things have been off-kilter for almost a month now. Derpy is their Southwind, and she carried on well enough on her own, but the whole idea of the Southwind system relies on coordination. make a gap in the line and its inevitably going to mess things up a bit.
Cashmere has pouring into the books Princess Twilight rescued from the old palace in the Everfree forest. I imagine its pretty great for him, he’s a bit of a history buff. There’s a reason he volunteered for the Moon Pony process as a tester, he believed in the pony doing it, and he believed in what he knew of the past. Now he gets to see a whole wealth of texts from the actual pre-banishment era most of us didn’t even know existed. There’s a wealth of new knowledge in there Princess Twilight has been kind enough to (carefully) make publicly available, and its helping ponies understand a bit more about this new Princess that walked into our lives a few years ago and stood at Celestia’s side. We’re ponies, we trust our leader, but it still struck a lot of us as a little…odd.
I’m making a point to drop by the old palace now that it’s approachable and poke around a little. Cashmere learns through research, and to a degree, so do I, but I’ve always found I get more out of touching the stone or smelling the air if I’m trying to understand something. Besides, how often do you get to walk around in an ancient throne room, hmm? I’d like Cashmere to go with me, but I cant see at night in the dark of a stone palace, and he’ll be asleep in the daytime. Normally the whole Moon thing isn’t that big a deal, but when it comes to activities that are best done at noon or such, it does put a damper on things. Maybe I can snag someony else, I’ve sort of been trying to reach out a little. I’m not normally one to dwell on my own seclusion, but you spend a little time out of the loop and you start to notice how little you get to spend time with ponies.
That, and I kinda wanna make out in the Princesses old bedroom, if I can get away with it. Seriously, how great would that be. That’s a bucketlist item right there.
