Alright so this is mostly going to be a sort of "advertisement" entry for my new blog. For those who haven't guessed by the hint in the title, it is a Princess Twilight Sparkle RP blog. Also Spike is there, too, but the main focus is Twilight. I'll leave a link here for anyone who's actually interested. twxlxghtsparkle.tumblr.…
I don't normally work with canon characters, and I've never actually roleplayed on tumblr before, so this is kind of new for me. I'm kind of nervous, since I'm hoping I don't completely screw up the characters, but I'm also kind of excited. I haven't been involved in a decent roleplay in awhile, so I'm just like itching to get back into the swing of things, although I'm also a bit out of practice. I kind of need it though. Like I need to get back into roleplaying. It's fun and makes me happy. It also keeps me in practice with my writing. So I just need that outlet.
Now I would usually prefer to work with my own characters, and I do have a blog for them even if it turned into more of a personal, but I'm looking forward to working with Twilight and Spike. My friend actually suggested them and got me interested in making the blog. She even helped make it. We already have a few threads planned with her Sunset. So I'm really looking forward to that. It's going to be a lot of fun.
I was already considering making a blog for a canon character so that I could roleplay with her. I just wasn't sure who to choose. I didn't know who I wanted to work with. So she really helped me decide. But you know, if I had to choose from MLP alone, I probably would have chosen Twilight. I really like her and she's possibly my favorite of the group. I pretty much liked her as soon as I saw her. Well, I like all of them actually, but I liked Twilight because of how she was introduced. She was an anti-social bookworm. I just sort of identified with that. It's rare that I get to actually relate to a character, even a little bit. So it was just nice to see that right away, even if I don't really relate to her all that much aside from that. And adding Spike gives me an outlet for any corny jokes I think of that Twilight wouldn't say. So it's a nice duo for me to work with.
The blog itself is looking pretty nice so far, and I'm fairly happy with it. I just want to work on more headcanons, although I'm not really sure what all to add. It's kind of hard to think of things to add when Twilight is fairly well developed already. Like there just isn't as much work for me to do. I'd have more room for creativity with like a minor character, but not a major one like Twilight.
I could do more with Spike, but that's kind of tricky because he's a dragon. Dragons as a whole aren't really mentioned all that much. We don't know a whole lot about them. We also don't know anything about Spike's actual family or where he's from. We don't know what happened with his parents and how his egg ended up with ponies. I could do something with that, but I don't know. I might wait for now and just see if they ever do something with that in canon.
Well, anyway, aside from maybe headcanons, I think the blog is pretty much good to go. I just need to get some icons to use and I think that's all I need to actually get started. I'm just nervous about actually roleplaying. I mean, I'm rusty and I haven't done something like this before. So I just want to ease into it, get back into practice, and get used to my adopted children. I know how to work with my own children, but these two are not mine, so I have to get used to them. I plan to treat Twilight and Spike with the same love and respect that I do my own babies. I hope I do a good job with them.
