Ooh lookit the punky Celestia, she’s like teenaged or something.
Fun Fact: Originally I was planning on having this be young!Celestia’s design for some future updates, with the idea that she was kinda the rebellious teen archetype before she embraced her princessness and ascended to alicornosity, but I decided that while this would be fun it’d be pushing the character a little too much and also it’s not like I need her design to 100% scream “REBEL TEEN” for her to be one.
Plus odds are Pinklestia’ll be canon even though I prefer bluemane but WHATEVER.
OoC: So wait, is Celestia Replies coming back?
Yes! Why did it end the first time? Long story short, you don’t care. We’ve been down this road before of me claiming this, and then in three weeks doing that, and then nothing happens and blargety bloo. Instead, I’ll simply post a teaser for the next update. You ponies like teasers, right?
I hate that, is please, if you’re going to make an art blog with a brand new character, please do it well. Don’t make the character crappy all because YOU don’t know how to character is.

I know I don’t normally reblog stuff, but since this is so grammatically broken but so essentially accurate, and some people didn’t understand it, I decided to… elaborate, I guess.
What this confession means is that it refers to when someone sees a new character, they will sometimes make an askblog right away for that character, regardless of how much they actually understand the character. Like, if someone started a Babs Seed Tumblr and made her 100% douche with no motivation or reason, because the episode wasn’t out yet and they were just going on promotional clips. Maybe they’ve seen the full intro episode for that character, but they make the blog anyway, without taking the time to wonder if they actually understand the characterization and if they’d be able to write that well.
Or maybe they just make the character ghettofab. (though that’s more forgivable because it’s clearly just a joke and a hilarious one at that, like comment subscribe)
The confession claims that the main motivation for doing this is just so they can be the first blog for that character out there and many people will follow them more out of novelty than out of quality. Which… is probably accurate in some instances, but I don’t think it’s the key motivation. Sometimes it’s just through poor impulse control (like most of my blogs WOOPS), sometimes it’s just because they really like the design or something… maybe some blogs actually DO like the characters themselves and know them to some degree, but they still jump in all feet forward without any foresight.
I remember back when the Flim-Flam Brothers were introduced, someone made an askblog for them. It had a single post, then died. Then it was given another mod, had one or two posts… then died again. I’m not going to put words in their mouths, since I don’t know the why, but this is pretty much what the confession is talking about. Don’t make a blog for a character unless you understand exactly what you plan to do with that character, and that you plan to actually follow through with it. Don’t make an askblog just to be the first dude with that character’s askblog.
