Q: Didn’t you already win this? I remember voting for this exact same design a month ago.
A: The contest had three parts: one for designs involving My Little Pony protagonists, one for designs involving My Little Pony villains, and a final part where all the winning designs compete for a grand prize. This is that final part, and if you guys can help me win, I’ll get 2500 dollars. And by “help me win” I mean “help me get ten times as many votes as everyone else”.
Q: Isn’t this against the spirit of the contest? Using your entire readerbase to get an insane number of votes?
A: Excuse me, but the contest is Ponies versus Villains! I’m merely giving them a terrifying villain worth fighting against.
Q: Did you ever get those margaritas and tacos you were planning to get with the Round 1 prize money?
A: No, since I didn’t get the grand prize most of it just went toward covering the buttons I sent out last month as prizes for the runner minigame. But hey, it was fun, and that’s what matters.
NEW! Q: Can I still view the Quill-Weave update from Round 1 somewhere?
A: Yes! For the time being, the Round 1 page is archived here. The directions on that page will still work (or if you want to save time, the password it asks for is “Change of Heart”). Note that the update there takes place chronologically later than this one, though.
Q: I love you and I’m going to go vote for your contest entry now and tell all my friends to vote.
A: Awesome, I love you too. <3. Now let’s crush all who oppose me.
