Today I'm working on a timeline of events for all the ponies and major events in their lives. I realized that if I'm not careful, I'm going to end up with some serious contradictions and I really don't want that to happen. Visualizing everything is really helpful
So one correction that has come out of this. I think there have been times I said Luau was the oldest when it has to be Rook who's oldest for many reasons. So for those who I led astray, my apologies.
Also note that even now, I'm finding that some of my characters are writing themselves. Especially Luau. I keep trying to make her "Not Pinkie", but she keeps pulling back and acting Pinkie-like. I have NO control over that pony
