  • If you are seeing this, then I have begun the process of reorganizing my Tumblr blogs.  Instead of agonizing over how to continue Ask Aquilinus, I’ve decided to just shunt it over to a secondary blog and update it at my leisure.
  • This primary blog will now become my modblog, where I can draw whatever, whenever the mood strikes.  Pony Scribbles Pony is just a nonsense phrase, rather than an in-character ponysona.  If you prefer, you may refer to me as AquiMod or my better known Internet alias, Son Goharotto.
  • All AskAqui content has been reposted to the secondary blog and any strictly OOC posts will be kept here.  I’m not abandoning AskAqui, but for now, questions and submissions are disabled.  There is a considerable backlog, so I’ll have plenty of material to draw from when I get around to it.  (New content there will be reblogged it here, for your convenience.)
  • Thanks for sticking with me as long as you have.  Hopefully, my more nonsensical artistic impulses will be just as entertaining to you.  Stay tuned!

(( Seems someone took a bit of my headcanon and worked it into a fanfic.  Click the link and give it a looksee!  Thanks to Gregory Griffin for the heads-up. ))

(( I knew this day would come. ))

(( You know, it was never my intention to get into headcanon with this blog.  I originally just wanted to draw silly reaction comics.  There wasn’t going to be a story or anything like that.  Chalk it up to my innate proclivity for fantastical melodrama. ))

(( I’ll be honest and admit that my interest in drawing Aqui has been waning steadily since the start of the year.  I have no shortage of ideas, trust me, but it’s becoming a struggle to get things down on paper, so to speak.  I still enjoy drawing ponies, but I’m getting tired of poring over the same character over and over.  The spark is gone. ))

(( I guess it’s time to decide if this is worth continuing as an in-character ask blog.  Aquilinus wasn’t meant to be my ponysona, but I might turn this into a proper modblog and pursue other ideas. ))

(( *sigh* ))

(( An audition for the role of Aquilinus.  Maybe not the direction I would have gone, but I appreciate that he sounds like an adult.  In pony years, Aqui’s almost middle-aged.  Congratulations to Stuckinadessert for getting the role!

Also… WHY DIDN’T ANYPONY TELL ME ABOUT THIS?

EDIT: Did some poking around related videos and found the Facebook page.  Seems to be an FiM fan animation!

UPDATE: Got in touch with Project staff.  They didn’t realize Aqui was specificallymy character and don’t want to cause any confusion.  They’ll probably go with a unique guard pony of their own. ))

Canon vs Headcanon: The Setting of “Ask Aquilinus”

((The question was once posed to me, “What do you do when the show contradicts your blog?”  This is paraphrased and I apologize for not giving credit to whom asked, as I can’t remember and I accidentally replied privately instead of publicly, as I originally intended.  However, that mistake gave me some more time to consider the issue, as well as new canon to absorb from the show itself.))
