“In their tongue they call him… Equiskiin, Pony-born.”

As epic as Skyrim is, it turns out there’s a way to make it just that much more epic. Replace every dragon with Fluttershy. If you’re playing the PC version of Skyrim, you can grab this mod at Skyrim Nexus. Well met, creator zdzichorowerzysta. Well met indeed.

Saturday Morning Cartoons with the Dohvakids

The arrow-to-the-knee epidemic, explained

No wonder so many folks from every corner of the intertubes are complaining that they used to do things until they took arrows to the knee. There’s a maniac archer on the loose!
