AAAAAAAAAAAND HE BROKE THE GAME, G'DAY. Kidding. I'd start rhyming now to get in on the fun but being a machine cultist and a christian, zealous in both accounts, I would go from offensive chaos spirit to screaming space marine chaplain of the black templars. Twilight

Wait, what?! I missed the rhyming fun?! Damn you Adder, I would've won!

I have been praised for my zebra rhyming, 'cause I pay attention to meter and timing. Just having the last words rhyme is no plan; to do it all right, the entire line must scan.

Either way, on the topic of bullets and guns: I myself live in Texas but don't have a one. I've shot pistols and rifles at a friend of mine's farm, but honestly I feel no need to go armed. If I got a revolver, a .357, or if it's semi-auto, a 1911. (I didn't make anything up for that rhyme; the truth is that I've had both those thoughts for some time.) I'm shocked that revolvers are seen as complex; I always heard they had the simpler specs. But maybe that's based on the old-school type guns -- bad materials, tolerance, and limited runs.

I've fired at water bottles, golf balls, and the like with my dad or my dad's parents on about four different occasions, and that's the extent of my gun use. I don't want a gun since it would limit my combat options to inflicting severe pain on, wounding, and/or killing my opponent. I might get a taser, though.

I really wanted to rhyme "Tell 'em" and "parabellum" in my previous post but I couldn't figure a good way. Bleh.

80s band Shriekback rhymed "nemesis" with "parthenogenesis" which is pretty damn clever.

Rhyming is hard when your words are specific, but with meter and attention, the results are terrific. Not that one, though, that was not the best. When it comes to basic rhyme schemes, I don't pass the test. At all. C'est mal; but nonetheless I hear the call from time to time to grab a rhyme and make English my thrall.

Okay, never again. Anyway, I don't own a gun; can't where I'm at right now, and don't need one back home. If I do ever get one, I'd probably want something small, with a very short effective range or whatever (if I miss, I don't want to kill someone), and easy to use. I HAVE carried a knife - proper self-defense one, not a kitchen knife - one time while escorting a friend around, but that's it. Nothing's ever happened to me, mind you. Closest I ever came to being assaulted was a schizophrenic homeless person trying to give me a hat that he was convinced was mine. /shrug It was sort of sweet, really. I have very little in the way of defensive training... I was a biter as a toddler, if that helps! =P

I get messed with on the subway all the time because I'm a sweet thang. Usually I get creeps starting with "What are you reading/listening to?" and it turns into some creeper bullshit from there. Never been held up/mugged before but I've mastered groin kick retaliations for when "Please don't touch me" doesn't work.

Pro tip: Smoking 100s out of a stiletto cigarette holder on your balcony with a glass of brandy is some dapper flapper shit. Highly recommended if you possess a vagina.

Attempt to write the worst FoE fanfic ever: Have your protagonist meet as many FoE protagonists as possible and bed them, trying to break canon in various ways. Also attempt to write a terribly implausible explanation for Rainbow Dash. Conclude the story in a way so your protagonist trumps Littlepip's conclusion, perhaps having a coda to Fluttershy's book.

It'd be fun. :P

@Cao As funny as that would be... I'm not even done reading FoE, and it's against my policy to write stupid.

@Rum That's plausible enough, but the prompt is rather broad. I'll think about it.

Write a story in universe about a separated or broken up couple. Use first person for both and switch the perspective around as they go about their days and cross or almost cross paths. Be vague about the reasons for the separation.

This was an idea I was thinking of but I'm so busy I don't think I'll have the time to start it. :(

You're not wrong; I think in fact you may be underselling your case. Brandy works for everyone, and the holder can be a fine accessory for the swingin' gentleman as well.

That said, it might be harder to pull off than just using a cigar, but in the end would probably depend on what you're wearing. I think an evening jacket, even in black but especially in white with black pants, would better compliment the holder (as would, I think, full white tie, if you had a reason or excuse for it--partly because I just don't see white gloves meshing with a cigar at all), while a smoking jacket or business wear would probably fit better with the cigar. At a guess I'd likely say that the narrower your frame the better you could pull off the holder as opposed to the cigar.

Were I to try pulling something like this off, I'd probably drop the brandy for a gin drink served in a cocktail glass (wow, surprise there, right?) and go for the holder. Honestly, this sort of thing is pretty much the only reason, apart from the related issue that I often don't know just what to do with my hands, I have any regret whatsoever that I'm a nonsmoker.

Anyone else have thoughts on consumables as accessories?

Oh yes, I made this awesome suit from meat, later we had a barbecue

Honestly, its unusual how smoking a cigarette can make a person sppear something, not a smoker myself aside from the occasional hooka pipe.

On a side note, my cat appears to like gumbo

Cigarette...holder? You mean fingers?

I'm up for sad, but not romance. I do first person well, though, I've been told. I don't believe it to be a necessary component of good storycraft, and outright don't read stories that are all about that and little else, however hypocritical that might make me on occasion. Although, the quality of my own stories shows about how far that gets me. I have never known love, and writers take penalties to quality when writing about things they know naught about, as is my understanding. If I did, I'd certainly try. A good sad/romance fic has appeal to many.

Hrmm, writing prompt... Well, since nobody's ever read Bad Ronald (which is a SHAME because that book is a cynical masterpiece), I suppose a crossover with it is right out... Okay, how about a story of a day in the life of the old pony who keeps the Ponyville clocktower up and running? Or, if slice of life is not appealing, detail his experience of the day of Princess Luna's return.

The most recent Steam sale had the price of each NV DLC at somewhere between $2.50 and $3.00. If you're patient it'll eventually go on sale again.

One-shot prompt: Your One True Pair of ponies are on their first date.

Crazy idea that no-one will every write and probably couldn't if they wanted to: All the Mane 6 falling in love with each other, (each one is in love with the other five,) and it's totally believable and romantic. Somehow.
