    Don't give the thief any ideas.

    It could be worse: instead of Hello Kitty or My Little Pony, she could give you a shmoo.

    There is nothing wrong with Pony avatars. And sparkles.

    *crosses arms, makes a mean-looking face*
    Lady Sparkles, SparklePony, The SparklePony of DOOOOOM, Sparkles, Sparkles McModderson, The Sparkler, Sparklegee, The Sparkling Portuguee... I think I see a pattern here. Oh, and Horny McPoarny.

    I think that we need to deal with this logically. Who would want to steal your avatars? Let's line up some suspects.
    I did the Flash Fiction Challenge this week! You could too! (password: flashed)


    Hero/Villain: Fixing, thanks to betas
    Super/Human: With betas
    Master/Puppet: Ready for betas

    Gotta say, I'm not liking this year . I can't tell who's posting what with all the avatars the same (visual perception issues). I have to keep changing mine back to find my own posts in the thread.
