I've been gone awhile, but I'm back!
« on: February 10, 2019, 10:48:54 AM »
Hey guys, it's Stormness, back again!

I took a bit of an arena sabbatical. With the loss of our son, at first I threw myself into the internet and my online friendships, but as I started dealing with the loss better and re-entering the real world, I needed to put a lot more effort into keeping my real-world relationships functioning. And so the arena fell by the wayside.

But my life is so much better emotionally and more organised now, and I can afford a little me time. Although it's hard to find with a new baby on the way. Converting our guest bedroom back into a nursery after painstakingly removing all traces of the previous one. We never thought we'd get here, but here we are, healthy and happy, and with a strong, healthy baby kicking around in my belly. And so I'm back at my pony home, not buying, or doing much selling either (although I have a massive box I still need to get through, and an even bigger box of fakies that need to be catalogued and sorted, and a whole bunch sold) but I'm here!

When I am collecting, I collect all gens except 3.5 and 4.5 (are we still calling them that? I remember a debate around when I left, just as they started coming out) vintage fakies, and MLP colouring books, G1 & G2 and the 5 mile press editions of G3 & G4. I also collect MLP media (games, CDs and DVDs) and that range of things seems to expand constantly, with me picking up random pony 'things' all the time, despite not 'actively collecting' at the moment.

Can't wait to see you all around, the old faces and the new alike!  :lovey:

Welcome back Stormness :hug: I'm glad you are doing better!

I think that the general consensus around the 4.5 / movie ponies is that we should wait until the next gen / reboot / whatever it will be comes around. 3.5 is still the same :)

Anyway, I'll see you around the forums :)
Still lusting after Sternenglanz...

Welcome back!

I'm excited to see what Hasbro will bring us next. I'm still calling the new ones "new style" G4s in my mind. I think some of them look quite cute, actually, but it really varies between poses. I do prefer the original G4 moulds for sure!
