Celestial Cavern
"Our expedition to the cave complex was an eternity spent trudging amids broken monuments to fallen monarchs. Deeper still, the statues made room for wild, misshapen crystal growths. Before we knew it, we were in the middle of a twisting maze which seemed to change maliciously, each dead end sending shivers down our spines as we realized even retracing our steps had long since become impossible. As the protective gem's power waned, we quickly forgot our mission, deciding instead on the return to the relative safety of the ruins outside the dead city. With darkness growing and shadows around us beginning to stir uneasily, our carefully measured retreat turned into a mad scramble.

It wasn't long before the first cave dweller appeared before us. A hulking monstrosity of ever-shifting dark crystal, it bore an uncanny resemblance to an adventurer we've met only weeks ago in a tavern. Back then, he had told us of the strange allure of the crystal caves; the whispers in his dreams, and his yearning to explore them in hopes of finding someone once dear to him. Even now, his shambling crystalline form seemed to wear the same vacant smile as he slowly approached us. We were petrified, unable to act as he - no, as it came closer. The spell was broken when it attacked, surprisingly nimble despite its rock-hard appendages.

I will not lie, and say I stood my ground and fought. There is no shame is fleeing such... thing, so alien, yet so familiar. Our party separated, the screams of my companions echoing through the caverns behind me. I ran, blinded by tears, mumbling madly. I would have fallen prey to the first beast to happen upon me were it not for my brother. Perhaps he had kept more of his wits about him, or he simply fled in the same direction; in either case, he was beside me when we were attacked. The crab-like, crystalline spiders seemed almost normal compared to what we have left behind us - we fought, and the adrenaline helped somewhat to anchor the last vestiges of my slipping sanity. And yet, with each hit, scratch, bash, and spell, I felt the gem I carried growing weaker, until -

I cannot say more.

Is it not obvious, seeing me here, with the rest gone, that I've proven a coward twice in a single day? Could you in all confidence say you would not do the same?

I have survived the ordeal, and found my way back home, even though I am not sure how. I wish never to return to those strange, twisting caverns... and yet...

...and yet each night, I hear the voice whispering just beyond the threshold of recognition. In my dreams, I glance a familiar figure, beckoning, and I know I will return, and will be with my brother again."

A commission for Cjbronyten, featuring Summer Flare and Shield Blitzer. In case it wasn't obvious, this was heavily inspired by Darkest Dungeon. I've kinda toyed with the idea of writing a series of crossover stories between that and MLP, but kinda lack the motivation.

Fantastic Creatures
"So, you read about dangerous creatures, their natural habitats, dangers involved, and then... go meet them? Just to see if they don't need anything?"
"..."
"But what if they're... you know, not nice?"
"...!"
"They're always nice? But... most of them are predators, carnivores, you know, wild animals."
"...?"
"No, you're not a wild animal. You're a... fluffy... ball of fluff. A pony. There's a difference."
"...?"
"The difference is... uh... intellect, maybe? No, wait plenty of animals... maybe tool use? No wait, octopuses, ravens... Maybe... not being dominated by your natural urges?"
"...!"
"Wanting to go meet strange creatures is not a natural urge! I mean things like... um... eating!"
"..."
"
That's not the same thing! You eat plants. They eat other animals."
"...?"
"I guess you're right, otters do eat fish, and we don't shun them. And Fluttershy has a bear hanging around, and I'm pretty sure that's not a herbivore..."
"...?"
"I... you know what? I don't know. You're way more philosophical than I expected. I guess it comes down to them being scary, you know?"
"...!"
"Well, of course you wouldn't think so."

Perfect View
"To me, a train ride isn't just a method to get from 'here' to 'there', even though a lot of people see it that way. It's just one of the minor inconveniences of life to them. They'll be the first to take out a notepad or some kind of file, eyes glued to the paper, trying to convince themselves the train is just an office without their favorite stapler, and a bit more noise. Heck, I've seen a couple actually taking out a stapler, if you can believe that! Now, I don't think that's wrong - to each their own, you know? But me, I like to enjoy the ride. Even if the seats aren't the most comfortable thing ever, and you're confined to one place for quite some time, there's always perks. Just imagine - just outside the window is a constant stream of sights you'd normally have to spend days to visit on foot. And yes, they only last for a moment, but that's kinda the point, isn't it? They're fleeting, temporary, blink and you miss it. They're not all nice, either, but they are different. You can let your mind go, and imagine stories to each little village, field, and vista. To me, a train ride is like a trip around the country in fast forward. Although sometimes, the best sight isn't outside the windows at all."

Defending the Shores
"It was raining. Pouring, really, because of course it was. They don't have the guts to attack us in broad daylight. That's why the crews are usually mixed - we have better night sight, unicorns have magic. Where was I...? Oh yes... We were both soaked to the bone, but we kept watching the sky, firing shot after another, the gun shaking with recoil -"
"Hang on, recoil? Doesn't it fire laser or something?"
"What's a... laser?"
"It's... well, basically, a really bright, concentrated beam of light."
"That sounds like something the Princess would use."
"Hm, yes."
"But... no. The projectiles are actually something called 'plasma'. It's kinda technical."
"Plasma? Plasma of what? It's red, so maybe nitrogen from the atmosphere... But how do you even feed enough energy into that thing? You'd need like... a star or something! Not that a laser would be much better, when I think about it. The waste heat alone should torch the whole gun -"
"Hey! Look, I don't know all the details! I aim, I correct, and I shoot. The spotter is usually the one powering the gun, and doing most of the maintenance. All I do is 'Hold this here' and 'Don't touch that!'."
"Right. Sorry. I just thought I'd learn something really groundbreaking."
"I get it. Heh. You unicorns are all the same when it comes to these things. All I know is that it's something to do with the channeling crystals. It takes time to charge them up, and they eventually stop working all together. Just go find a group of spotters in a pub, and they'll ramble your ears off with environmental factors, cool down periods, recharge times, magic flows, ignition energies... Ugh. Just thinking about it makes me want to take a nap. Where was I?"
"It was a dark and stormy night?"
"Right! It was a dark and stormy night..."

Originally, I had this set during the day, but the color palette obviously didn't work for that at all, so I caved in and spent an entire day going through Elemental Magic again, and watching slow motion videos of water. I even thought of creating a physics model in SVG, but... you know. That is kinda silly even for me. At least I figured a way to simplify the rain animation, even though I can see a slight framerate mismatch on it due to the nature of discrete calculation mode. Next time, I'll just use linear - it'll work well enough for export, and should smooth out the details.

The Chrome memory leak bug is still a huge pain. But I think it's something they did, not me, because I tested both older versions of SVGRender, and old version of Chrome, and guess what? Works well enough on old Chrome. Although the memory management is horrendous, at least it doesn't just eat five gigs of RAM and die. Firefox chugs along pretty well, but the rendering speed on that is... I don't know, ten times worse?

Crunch Time
"Whenever there's a big order, I really have my hooves full - the time just flies! It takes me a whole day just picking fresh herbs around the forest, and by the time I start making the potions, salves, or whatever concoctions there are, it's already evening..."
"Why not just wait until the morning?"
"It's better when the ingredients are fresh, you know? At least that's what I think. I... I don't think the customers could really tell the difference, to be honest. But I would know! You know?"
"Yes, definitely."
"It's the right thing to do! So, yes, I end up working through the night, and sometimes, I only get an hour of shuteye before the cart comes. I always tell them to come for the stuff in the morning, and they know I'm good for it. Then, of course, I have to take care of the loading..."
"Wait, doesn't the driver do that?"
"Oh, they do the heavy lifting, but I like to make sure nothing gets misplaced or broken. And I have to make them tea, too! Coming all the way to my hut is quite the trip, especially early in the morning. And once everything is taken care off, I see the driver off, and can finally get some rest."
"It sounds pretty demanding."
"It can get a bit crazy, but... you know how it is, right? I don't want to keep ponies waiting. In the end, siting down in the evening, listening to the bugs and bubbling cauldrons, even when you have to grind and cut and stir... it's pretty relaxing. I wouldn't change it for the world."

Story time!
Talk about technical issues. AniGen handled fine enough (usual bug swatting while I worked, because hey, software development), but exporting was just a nightmare. Since the image has a few blurs in it, I knew it'd take a while. But I also know I can export twenty seconds at a time, so I set it up and went for a walk. I came back an hour later to a nice little message about Chrome running out of memory. After groaning a lot, I started exporting again, and watched the progress. It died in the first ten minutes. So I checked memory usage, and Chrome decided to eat six gigs of my RAM (!) before just giving up and crashing. So I went hunting for memory leaks, found nothing significant, started reading bunch of articles... six hours later, the best thing I could come up with was "Chrome is a literal idiot with idiotic memory management and I hate its face".
So I went to Derpfox. I mean Firefox.
Oh boy.
Did I mention aniGen wasn't really tested on Firefox?
I do try to keep things compatible, but it's mostly theoretic, since I just don't have time to switch browsers in the middle of work just to see what screws up.
So I had to fix it first. So I did (day of work). Then I started exporting. But Firefox memory management is great! And even for rendering, it's not really that bad. Until it came to large blurred semitransparent objects with dynamic scaling (the tulip flying by) and the rendering just tanked. Minute per frame? Sure.
SIX HOURS LATER the render was done.
And it was wrong.
Because SVGRender was never tested for Firefox.
A-ny-way, another day of development later, and the issues are mostly fixed. I hope.
So I rendered it again (six hours), ran out of hard drive space while GIFing it, had a complete system crash, lost all of my music playlists, found out some of the frames are still wrong, spend another five hours fixing it, and now it's done.
And so am I.

And I haven't even touched on the amount of work on the head turning animation, which I'm actually kinda proud of. And it has sound now! Because youtube!

I need to go lie down.

Hi. When I finish it. I've been commissioned for a whole 30-ish scene long animation this time, and coupled with some technical issues, it's been taking a long time. But hopefully, it'll be worth it.
