I swear, he does this every time he comes in. I don’t know what his deal is.
Merri Author: I have now gained a new respect for blogs like DiscorderlyConduct. Also, I am never drawing Discord again if I can help it. He takes FOREVER to draw.
For those folk who don’t get the joke, please reference this post.
Q:I think there needs to be more Lisa Frank style around here :3
Woo, that took a while to finish. Unlike the animators for MLP, I’m not bound to having to keep a regular appearance for the Mane 6. Thus I can enjoy giving them more personalized designs and changing up their hair styles as normal people are wont to do. I love Pony hair, which is why Merri’s had a different hair style three times now, and Fluttershy and Widget are on their second.
These are the In-Universe incarnations of the Mane 6, and as such are sourced from the original RPOL game they were depicted in, interactions and all.

Some fanart for askmerriweather because grump pone. Also, I don’t know if Merri would say Rubbish, so… I hope she would.
Merri: “Well, according to this, I’m pure evil. That’s a fine thank-you, isn’t it?”
Ah, what a fun bit of fan-art. ^_^ Thank you so much! I’m still trying to work out how Merri might actually come to terms with the internet as a whole. We’ve already pegged that she’s a sucker for cute cat videos, if nothing else. She’s not a big media consumer, so she’d probably be able to resist the siren call of TV Tropes better than most since she wouldn’t get a lot of the references. But Wikipedia link-hopping would surely trap her like the rest.
After a little flirtin’ with Death, I got to thinkin’: wow, Tech’s got a lot of noncanonical ladyfriends! Well… noncanonical yet/as far as you guys know. ;> Thought I’d give them all a little love with some in-character interactions from Tech.
Tech loves ladies. As friends, lovers, mentors, students, bros, soul-mates, you-name-it. He doesn’t have anything against dudes; it tends to be a natural attraction, but man, ladies are so interesting. He loves listening to ladies talk from their point of view—partly because it’s such a different experience from his own, being a fairly traditionally masculine guy. Tech might be a bit of a grump sometimes, but he’s much more interested in others than he appears.
Anyway, all of these ladies are lovely, and you should totally watch them. Also Rusty Nail, who is not a lady, but is lovely as well!
LOOK AT HOW ADORABLE THESE ARE.
Whops; looks like Merri’s gotten some comeuppance for her part in confusing Sexually Confused Lyra. Rusty, meanwhile, is simply being rewarded for bad behavior.
Additionally, I’m still eternally amused by the headcanon that China Saucer would flirt with Tech non-stop. Half because she likes silver foxes and half because it would annoy Merri.
So for today I managed to stream and draw a few images for fun today. Thank you to those that had joined me.
Characters respectably belong to Sharkbite, Foggy, Meww, Rusty and Merriweather, Potatoe, Zearoupon and Corruptedinkblot, Neoyi, and industrious-Changeling
Unfortunately Photoshop was acting screwy and long after the point of no return, I had accidentally deleted one of the requests completely without realizing it. I am truely sorry about that. I’ll hunker down and draw you something tomorrow. :C
Gosh you two, who said you could be that adorable. You are under arrest by the Cutie Police.
Lookit those cutie patoots. :3
Guest appearances by:
Y’all seriously have no idea how hard I’ve been trying to figure out how to cameo Adamant and Westwood for the longest time now.
So there’s a bit of a story behind this post. One day, totally out of the blue, this fellow named Zearou submitted a few pieces of rather lovely digital art, including a Merriweather-customized version of that halberd. While it’s wonderful and I’m really quite flattered that he took it upon himself to put so much effort into something as a gift, I had no idea what to do with it! This isn’t exactly an action-themed story and Merri’s already established that she doesn’t trust magical weapons, so it’s not like she’d keep them. I thought having her report them to the proper authorities was far more in-character a move.
But all the same, thank you so much, Zearou! It’s a lovely gift and very sweet of you!
Q:Is that one pony that's capable of sneaking up on the witch happen to be pink?
I know you already debunked this when that other person who had the same thought as me asked, but I still wanted to draw it anyways.
Aww, lookit the cute lil’ abomination against all that is good in this world.
Oh, hey, and The Witch is there too. :3
Still tipsy. Figures I can’t walk off the mead I liberated from the Flutterponies on the way here. I know you have little use for culture and therefore art. But I might just be able to draw up a token of apology for maybe being too trying…pictures are worth a thousand words right? Mnph. Cookies.
[In all seriousness I do love the Witch, right from when she was first introduced in Merriweather’s ancestor tale (I think, it was a while ago). Not to mention she’s beautiful to draw. :) Really happy a blog exists about her now.]
Wow, that looks so purdy. :3 And here I was afraid The Witch was coming off a bit too harsh and snippy as of late.
It’s that time again!
Season 4 is in full swing bringing new things to the table and the fandom machine is back up and running to at least 45% efficiency. Got any headcanons, theories, or ideas you’d like to discuss about the Ask Merriweather blog, the show, or general story telling? Let’s hear ‘em!
Let’s do dis.
