“Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”
- Chinese Proverb
The new week brings a variety of changes, both welcome and unwelcome. Most noticeable is the fact that the Elements of Harmony are still largely unaccounted for, despite everyone’s best efforts. However, the new week also brings something new to Ponyville. For the first time on any of the worlds there is actually a day/night cycle. The first night is short - about as long as the night would normally be on the Summer Solstice - but noticeably increases in length over the course of the week.
In addition, the familiar set of dreams begins once again, this time focusing on the balance between light and dark. As ever, the exact form of the dreams varies from person to person, but it always ends up returning to light and dark, as well as the clashes between the two. Interestingly, Keyholes do not seem to play much of a role in these latest dreams, although keys are, especially for those whose worlds are naturally inclined to connect keys with either light or darkness.
Things remain much the same in the other worlds, at least for the time being.
You know what the mods’ new year’s resolution is? Getting week changes back on point. Now that the holidays are over, hopefully things will get that much easier, at least in that aspect. If you do still need to call hiatus, please remember to use the hiatus post; if you’ve come off hiatus, please let us know.
For those of you new to things, the recurring dreams are unique to each character but follow the common theme outlined above, and each character has them every time they fall asleep. We’ll let you know when they end. If you have any questions, feel free to ask a mod or another player.
As always, please tag your posts accordingly, including the network posts you tag into. If you aren’t sure how to tag your posts, or if your character still needs tags in the comms, please let the mods know and we’ll sort it out.
Happy new year!
