I wanted to make this post because I stumbled onto this recent journal entry on JohnJoseco’s DA page. For those who aren’t in the know, JohnJoseco is one of the most prominent MLP:FiM artists in the community, and his humanizations are undeniably popular.
So, your talent is weather? I prefer sleeping myself.
Winter weather, particularly. I’m really good at working with snowstorms and blizzards to make sure it doesn’t fall too fast or turn into freezing rain or sleet. I’m fine with other weather, of course, but I’m really good with the cold weather stuff.
I’ve been looking around Tumblr a bit and I’ve discovered, um, things…
Very dark, disturbing things. Apparently a lot of ponies out there are into things I didn’t even know about. Things that I find… um… well… they make me feel funny.
I’m not really sure what think about this stuff, but no one’s asked me any questions in a few days, so I figured I would let you all know what I’m up to.
There’s never much of anything interesting going on around here, which might be why nopony ever asks me questions. Especially when there are far more interesting ponies to follow, ones with cameras… and stuff.
So aside from Rarity, who is the cutest pony to pair up with our rainbow maned goddess? Cause I love me some Pinkie! But Twilight is so adorkable. And AJ has the whole Angry Sex thing. And then theres the whole dom/sub|sub/dom with Fluttershy....I'll be in my bunk.
Wait… who are you talking about? Rainbow-maned goddess? You mean Rainbow Dash? and those other names… wait.. those are all the Elements of Harmony, aren’t they?
Wow… is nothing sacred with you, Ms. Kitspony? They saved all of Equestria from Nightmare Moon, and from Discord… and you think about… pairing them up… sexually? For shame…
Rainbow Dash is pretty cute, but I don’t really usually think about mares that way. And I haven’t really seen any of the others… but… *blush* oh my…
((OOCly, my next favourite Dash ship would be FlutterDash or PinkieDash, or all three together… mostly thanks to the futaquestria tumblr.))
As an earth pony who occasionally fancies a dream of flying, I ask you: what's the best part about having wings?
The best part is being able to go wherever I want quickly. Walking takes an awfully long time, and even running isn’t as fast as a moderate flying speed. Plus I can go a lot farther before I get tired.
Mind you, I’m not one of those pegasi who have to fly everywhere. I’m more than happy to walk if I’m with a non-pegasus friend or just going a short distance or whatever.
I guess another big advantage is not having to trudge through snow or slush or mud when the weather is bad, but it sucks trying to fly in the rain.
Sorry for being so boring with my answer, but I’m a fairly practical pony at heart.
I'm sure you're tired of all this fuss over the Sonic Rainboom. Now that the buzz is quieting, it seems a good time to ask: do you or any of your peers on the weather team know a unique trick?
Nah. The rainboom was really awesome. I mean, only one pony has ever pulled it off… but I’m sure you don’t want to hear some random weather pony go on about Rainbow Dash, right?
So, tricks… well, I’m not a fast flier, but I have endurance, so my tricks aren’t quite as flashy. One thing I can do is collect water vapor under my wings as I fly, making little swirly clouds there. Most ponies can’t hold them together well, but I can. If I want to, I can keep them pretty large and make a neat cloudy contrail behind me as I fly. It helps if I need to fly ahead of my team or mark off an area that needs to be rained on, or whatever.
Like I said, I’m not flashy, but I’ve got balls (of cloud, under my wings).
Sometimes. It’s kind of inevitable when you’re flying a lot. Of course, I usually just keep my lips together, and it’s all good. I honestly don’t know any pegasus who’s overly concerned about this sort of thing. I mean, if you were going somewhere fancy, you wouldn’t be flying yourself there anyway.
Ooh, do they let you in the weather factory cos I was in there one time and there was this big button marked DO NOT PUSH and I pushed it and now they won't let me back in ever...
THE Weather Factory, like the one in Cloudsdale? Oh man, that is so just for the tourists. Like seriously… sure, they do the R&D stuff there, but it’s not like they seriously make all the rainbows and clouds and snowflakes for Equestria there… I mean really. Clouds make their own snowflakes for one, and whipping up a cloud is really easy for a pegasus.. so yeah, it’s for the tourists.
Hi there! Are there any close friends of yours living in or out of Fetlock Falls?
I have way too many friends to list here, and almost all of them are local. In a small town, all the foals of the same age stick together pretty tightly, and me and a few others have stayed great friends this whole time.
The only friends I have who aren’t local are the ones who grew up here and moved away, and a few colts and fillies I met in Weather School.
How long does winter last up there? Do you have a Winter Wrap-up type thing? My delivery route only rarely takes me that far north.
Winter lasts just a long as in the rest of Equestria. Everywhere has Winter Wrap-Up simultaneously. Our winters are just colder, as is our late fall and early spring.
It’s kind of dreary right before and after winter, and I usually find myself wanting the snow to come back at those times. Snow at least makes the town a bit more cheery and bright and is pretty to look at.
What kinds of things do you like to do in your spare time?
Well… I like to knit. There’s a lot of need for hats and scarves and sweaters and socks once the weather turns cold, so everypony here learns to knit as soon as she can trot, almost.
I like how it lets me be creative, while at the same time leaving something of lasting value.
Beyond that, I love just going for long flights. I’m not the fastest flyer, but I have great endurance and can just soar for hours without getting too tired. I’ve seen lots of neat places that most ponies never would know existed. I wish I had more ponies to share those places with, though, which is part of the reason I started this tumblr, I guess.
Well, I remember seeing my first snowfall. I was born in early spring, so I was almost a year old when winter came around again. I woke up one morning, looked out my window, and the sky and ground were just all white. It was amazing. All I could think…
Hey wait… MAMMARY? What kind of sick pervert are you, Mr. Anonypony? *sigh* I was warned about your type.
Hrm. Do I know you? There can't be that many of us weather ponies running around...
Heya! Thanks for asking me my first question here! :)
I don’t think I know you, unless we met at weather school in Cloudsdale. I’ve never really spent much time outside of Fetlock Falls, to be honest. I only graduated from weather school last summer, and I’ve been pretty busy heading up the weather patrol here in town, even if it is only me and a couple of other pegasi.
You look like you’re probably a few years older than me, though. I’m sorry that I don’t have a photo up yet, because I’m sure you’d recognize me if you’d seen me. I have sort of a unique look, I’ve been told.
But anyway, nice to meet you, and thanks for starting me off here!
