Woo hoo!

This year I'm participating in Ponyfest12! Because I maaaaay love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And I maaaaaaay love making ponies.

So add in a contest where you make ponies of the characters in your novel for a chance to win a custom pony? Yeah, I'm going to be there.

So these are some ponies from my YA fantasy: Break Free.

My one sentence description: Seventeen year old Kiel Reaux is enslaved and must lead a priestess through a murderous magical jungle in order to earn his freedom.

Yay! So here are the characters:

This is the Wild pony. The Wild is a jungle full of untamed magic. It's crazy and horrible and people die terribly when they venture in. So as you can see my pony is wild and crazy and slightly malevolent. He's a unicorn because the jungle is magical and his cutie mark is a river because there's a magical river that runs through the Wild.

This is my Kiel pony. Kiel is a Wilder, which means he was a child born too close to the untamed magic of the Wild. Because of that, he has wild magic in his blood, which turns his eyes and hair gold. His cutie mark is a shackle, because in the novel he's a slave (hence the slave collar). He wears a bracelet of spell stones, each one with a different magical spell.
This is Kiel's love interest, Izzy. She crafts magic spell-stones, so she's a unicorn. Her cutie mark is a powerful spell stone that she's carrying through the Wild

This is my Dayre pony. Dayre is an earth pony because he's Izzy's bodyguard. His cutie mark is a spear because he's a warrior and wears a warrior spell-stone that makes him stronger and faster in battle and has embedded spell stones in his arm that lets him fire electricity at his enemies.

Yay! So there you have it! Visit the above link to see the other entries.

You do find the coolest things. Love the ponies. I'll have to show the Monster when she gets home from school. She has Ponies too.

I love these ponies! (Confounded tv series aimed at children yet are so good. It's like I never grew up...)

I'll bet you bugged your parents for a real pony when you were a kid. :)

These are super-cute!! I love how different they all are. I entered too--in fact, I got so excited when I saw this contest that my daughter thought I got an agent request. hehe. Oops.

But I was like, "Whaaat? A chance for a customized pony!!!" haha

Good luck in the contest, yours are some of the coolest ones I've seen!
