"In the Hive, we have a tradition. When a child dies, we all gather and make lights. We then let these lights loose into the sky so that the spirit can find their way in the darkness to the afterlife. These lights are also for us, the ones left behind so we can have a little light to hold onto. Even after the lights fade, we have to remember to stay together, so we can lift each other up and love one another. Death is never easy, but we have to believe in the face of tragedy that our loved ones will live on, and that one day we will meet them again. So long as we keep them in our hearts and our memories, they will never really leave us."
(My prayers and heart goes out to those affected by the tragedies in Newton, Connecticut and China. A child should never be victim to such violence, and I am deeply saddened how one of these occurrences happened close to home.
The Mandalorian Mercs, a Star Wars costume club, have started a donation pool for the victims of the Newton school shooting. If you can, give them a visit here.)
"Ooh, ooh! Do you want apple-raspberry, or citrus tea? I’ve got plenty!"
"At least that’s what Mommy always says."
"Now, we wait. Wait for the day we can be free from this curse, and have our revenge. We wait for the day we can finally go home.”
"…Chrysalis? Heh, goodnight, my little princess. Sleep well."
(Regular updates will resume Thanksgiving weekend! I hope you enjoyed the Changeling origin story!)
"You’re going to finish that story for me when we get home, right?"
"Ohboyohboyohboy!!! Nightmare Night, what a fright! Give me something good tonight! Whee~!"
"Today’s Spirit Day! That’s really important! You want to know why? Sometimes, people aren’t treated the way they wanted to be treated because they look different, or they act different. Sometimes they’re just treated badly for no reason at all! And that’s not very nice! In this world, it’s important to remember that no matter what, bullying and teasing is NEVER okay. You never know how much you could hurt somepony by something you might say, or do, that you might think is funny or doesn’t mean anything."

(I’m sorry it’s not all animated like I wanted it, guys. I tried absolutely everything to try and get the gifs to work, but I’m at a complete loss. I dunno if it’s Tumblr or what. However, I really wanted to give you all an update so, here you go. More should be coming soon.)
