Journal History

Hey all, my flight leaves in about 3 hours for the big Bronycon in Baltimore, MD this weekend.  My first time attending a brony convention, so I'm looking forward to that!  I'll return Monday!

I'll be assisting Gray-Mare (sulana.deviantart.com/) at the con, though not full time.  Her table is 520 in the vendor hall, so if you want to get a hold of me, hang out a bit at the convention, stop on by her table and she can pass me a message!

I'll definitely be planning to attend a few of the scheduled events, the vendor hall, and seeing many of my favorite artists in person!  If you wish to hook up with me, drop me a note or leave a comment and I'll make it a point to say hi!

Hey mate, I recall you saying how you used the Huns as inspiration for the changelings as inspiration in your universe. I found this rather interesting documentary on them and Attila the Hun in case you were interested: www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQYigC… Chrysalis definitely fits the bill for a changeling version of Attila.

Heh, the Huns/Mongolia I used for the Craven Horde in my Equestria race.  The reason the Changelings are based off them off of Romania is two-fold:
1) The official comic gives them a very goth look to their homeland
2) Sucking 'love' is a lot like sucking blood, and being Vampires originate or are often associated with Transylvania, that's the reason I placed them in that country to jive with the canon

Oh yeah, forgot about them.

And yeah mate, I agree about the Romanian Changeling Kingdom, I even remember bringing up the vampire vibe when I was first commenting on that 'League of Non-Aligned Nations' picture. We had quite the interesting discussions about it and on our notes, if I remember right. (Of course, on a side note, I remember the 'Changeling Kingdom; in the comics was more of an imperial outpost/colony, though if that's the look of what they turned the Cat Land into, that is then most likely what their homeland proper looks mostly like).

It's just that I remember at one point during our notes you making a comparison from the changelings to the Hunnic Hordes who went to Eastern Europe. It's likely I must have misremembered.

Also mate, if it's okay, I'm wondering what your thoughts are about this story concept with the Romanian Changeling Kingdom, perhaps in your universe if you'd be willing: 
"Having been married for three years, Lyra and Bonbon want to have a foal. However, after learning of the horrible conditions various orphaned Changeling children have been going through after the war has ended, the two decide to adopt a child to give them a better life. But things aren’t going to be easy, Changeling Law forbids same sex couple adoption. Despite trying through legal means, Lyra hatches a plan to get their baby. She and their friend, Big Macintosh will pretend to be married, get the baby, and come home with none the wiser. If only it was so easy."

It's mostly inspired by the plight of orphans in countries like Romania and the issue of international and gay adoption. What do you think of this story idea and the possibility of it maybe being set in the Romanian Changeling Kingdom?

For the  Amazonian ponies from your equestria expanded story are they ruled by a queen or tribal leader and also what is the leaders name? (Reason why i;m asking is because the first contact R.O.U.S makes is with the Amazonian ponies)
