OOC: Hal-Con Heads-up
Charlie-mod here. Just a heads-up to any folks watching my blog who’ll be attending Hal-Con this year, well so will I. Maybe we can meet up or something? I dunno.
Oh, and if any artists following this blog will be having a table at Hal-con, would any of you be interested in doing commissions? I usually ask at the con itself but hey, there’s no reason I could give some of you an extra two week’s notice and pay before the con, then pick it up, right? I promise it won’t be all dumb mule or Harley Quinn this year.
I totally don’t promise that.
Just send an ask / fan mail to this or my mod blog if you’d like to discuss things like email addresses and such.
How would you recognize me at the con? Well just look for some whiteboy nerd schmuck in an ugly shirt walking around with this huge art satchel over his shoulder and generally being in everyone’s way;
Note: Buttons may be different this year, but in general there will be a bunch of ‘em, many of ‘em pony-related because I’m a terrible person.
Delta. Tango. Foxtrot.
… this line finally worked!
((Well, this was a surprise! Charlie looks very handsome, thank you very much!
So yeah, general warning. There is NSFW content on the other end of this link, involving sentient cartoon tiny horses fornicating. If that doesn’t appeal to you then leave the link alone. But if you’re curious then go take a gander.))
"Also, some of them seem to be moving. That’s pretty creepy."
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR 2800+ FOLLOWERS!!
(please fullview for the gigantic image)
This took super long to do but I love how it came out! I’m amazed at how far Desert Eagle’s blog has come. I never dreamed of getting this many followers but here I am, and I’m so glad that people like her so much!
So! Here’s the list of people in this image! *deep breath*
What am I doin’ there? I guess every cathedral has it’s share of gargoyles, right?
((Well, this is very flattering, surprising, and wonderful! I really enjoy Desert Eagle’s style (lookit them adorable eyebrows and freckles) so having Charlie drawn in it is pretty dang awesome. And it looks like he’s among some pretty great company too.
If you’re not following Ask Desert Eagle, you really should. It’s a beautifully drawn and very well-written ask blog with some wonderfully designed and creative OC’s. And I’m a total sucker for a great OC.))
dumb birthday doodle.
Happy Birthday Charlie!
Thank you so much sweetheart. You have always been a kind and generous friend, more so than a dumb lazy guy like me deserves. This is incredibly sweet. I love how soft and caring SC looks here. And how confused, excited and a little bit terrified Charlie looks… perfect.
OOC: One of the first comments I ever received of this blog was a defense of segregation because “segregation isn’t necessarily bad…” It honestly left me stumped cus I was under the impression that we had collectively decided that segregation politics was a horribly bad idea best left to the dustbin of history.
Rarity is one of my favorite characters, so it kinda hurts having her say racist stuff, but then again, most racism isn’t done out of hatred or malice, Just a volatile combination of cluelessness, privilege and not being used to being called out on your BS.
Honestly, I’m kind of used to it by now.
((OOC: I rather like the point of mayor mare mod’s comments here. Bigotry and racism isn’t always born from sheer meanness or stupidity, and people who are otherwise nice and wonderful are perfectly capable of harbouring such opinions, even without realizing it. I’m sure some folks are upset that the character of Rarity said such things (but come on these are cartoon horses and a mule here so calm down son) but the show is all about characters having to learn from their mistakes and overcome their prejudices.
Thanks for the guest appearance! If you’re not following Mayor Mare then go do so, and be sure to send in lots of questions asking her about how she dyes her mane, she loves answering those.))
The end of Silver Lining’s ask blog thank you presents!- #3 - Charlie Foxtrot
These are things I was originally intending to do for the 1000 follower special, but now I’ll use them as thank you presents for the people who made this blog possible, people who I made friends with, followers who made their presences known, and my biggest fans. They’re just quick little doodles but hopefully they come out okay.
Charlie has always been an amazing friend. He’s always been there to give a kind word and offer moral support when I was feeling down. And Charlie’s always been fun to draw because he’s cool with everything, all the time. Even porn. Especially porn. Even if his cutie mark is a HUGE pain in the ass. Get it? GET IT?
That’s the closest I could make to a mule joke SIGH. He’s one of the nicest people on tumblr, really. And I’m glad to have him as a friend, even if life’s been crazy and we haven’t had a good chat in a while.
Thank you, Charlie
((Tasha, that was incredibly sweet and far too kind. You flatter me too much. Thank you for being a fantastic and generous friend. I wish I could be there for you more.))
Monkey Rag is now online. I hope you like it!
((An old friend of mine made this. Watch it, and you will experience pleasure.))
