• Tumblr Spotlight: Ask Sunshine and Moonbeams / Adventure of Octavia / Twilight's Slice of Life / Ask Firefly / Ask Mackintosh - Ponyville Blacksmith

    As with the Artist Spotlight this sort of went by the wayside while I was on vacation and helping a friend move. Anyhow, it is good to be back everyone! We've got everything from canon ponies, OCs to real world ponies in today's edition so check out all of our tumblrs after the break.

    As always, if you have a tumblr you would like to share, whether it is your own or someone elses, please make sure to send it my way at calpain@equestriadaily.com or my Twitter for review and filing. Mature themed ones (PG-13) are welcome as well!

    Update: If you have been featured before and were in hiatus and are coming back you can inform me at calpain@equestriadaily.com! I am starting a section at the end of spotlights that will point out tumblrs coming out of hiatus so people can check them out.

    Now on to the tumblrs!

    As the show is lacking in royal sibling interactions it's always nice to see how the fandom takes the relationship between the two sisters. For those of you that love the humorous adventures of Luna and Celestia over more serious contenders we've got a treat for you in Ask Sunshine and Moonbeams. I mean, super silly Celestia and slightly more serious Luna? How can you go wrong?

    Moonstuck when it started up back in the day was the first pony blog to take the choose your own adventure concept and make it popular and has since inspired a slew of similar tumblrs. Adventure of Octavia is one such tumblr that follows the journey of everyone's favorite cello playing pony with answers consisting of full color pages and brief animations. What will she do? Where will she end up? That is all determined by you guys! Check out the adventure below.

    Next up is something just a little bit different! Way back in the day I remember someone started a series based on the adventures of the creator's Derpy plushie and friends. Finding it quite endearing I followed it for awhile until the owner finally ended it some time ago and for awhile I didn't see anything like it until this little tumblr hit my inbox. As the title suggests, Twilight's Slice of Life follows the real world adventures of a Twilight plush which often ends in cuteness. If you're in the mood for something different, give this one a check!

    Now for a dabbling of OC tumblrs to round out this spotlight! This one has actually been suggested to me a few times and after taking a look at it's humble beginnings and comparing them to where the tumblr ended up I can see why it has been suggested! Follow the silly adventures of Firefly and her friends Snapshot and Soulsong as they get into all sorts of mischief in Ponyville.

    Considering the importance of hooves in Equestria it makes sense that they would have a blacksmith for common horseshoes! Meet Hardy Mackintosh, Ponyville's resident smith who lives near Sweet Apple Acres with his wife and daughter. If you're interested in a story based tumblr with an interesting OC make sure to check out Ask Mackintosh today!
