Wait, Humanization is Magic is updating? What is this. WHAT IS THIS.
OK, yeah, I… kinda let this die, and unfortunately I’m not planning to have this blog rise triumphantly from the ashes—not right now, at least. But, I have something that I think will be of interest to you.
So yesterday I was browsing around FIMFiction and decided to see what I could find in the way of humanization. Answer: not much, and most of it is clop. But as I looked through the results, something caught my eye: a story called Callsign MANE VI. It had a grand total of ten “likes” and one “dislike,” but I figured “oh, why the hay not” and clicked it.
And I am glad as hell I did.
Guys, if you’re following this blog, I assume you enjoy humanized ponies. If that is indeed the case, please read this fic. It’s well-thought-out, really well-executed, and frankly, pretty damn cool. It is also a textbook case of Needs More Love. It’s easy for a lot of really great content to go unnoticed due to the sheer volume of stuff the fandom produces every day, especially stuff like humanization that EqD usually ignores. I’d really love for this to get its shot at the spotlight.

HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS I FINALLY BROKE FIFTY FOLLOWERS.
Er, ahem, yes. Thanks for that. It’s nice to know there are people out there who enjoy what I’m doing. In celebration, I’m finally posting the original picture I cropped to make my nifty user icon.
OK, that’s actually a filthy lie. This is in fact an updated version with cleaner lines and a much, much nicer-looking gun that I just haven’t bothered to crop and upload yet. In any case, I am completely in favor of whatever possessed MegaSweet to make the original sketch, because even though this has no reason to make any sense, I absolutely love it. I can totally picture Octavia as a female James Bond.
