“And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder:
One of the four beasts saying: “Come and see.” And I saw.”
-Johnny Cash, The Man Comes Around
The wind was cold and the tree branches rattled together like brittle bones. The moon was yet still low in the sky and his silhouette cut a threatening profile against the orb as it rose through the cloudless night. The scents of battle and death surrounded him as he climbed that lonely hill in search of his fallen brethren. It had been an exhausting journey. Just over the crest of one more hill. He would find them there, he was sure of it. Around one more bend in the road. He would find them grazing in a valley. Surely he was not alone. Surely they had not left him for the wild green pastures of Arcadia.
For they were the Quadumvirate of the Skye. The Four Plush Ponies of the Rumpopalypse. Their strength was in their friendship and camaraderie. Together they could take on the world.
Yes, my faithful stalkers, it is once again time to step up to the altar of silly, let your imaginations run wild, and let your heart soar on wings of laughter. I wandered out to the Wild Things Summer Gacha Event and was promptly smacked in the face with a wall of cute. I don’t normally do cute. Cute is annoying to me for the most part but sometimes it tickles me in just that right spot (you know the one, just down and to the left… ahh, yes, right there, thank you.) and I indulge. This is what happened when I saw the ~*Water Horse*~ Avatars gacha by Tyrian Slade.
The ponies come with two animation huds. One has two sits and walk in place. The other is modifiable so you can add your own horse animations for sits and stands to it. Additionally, it has a walk, trot, canter and gallop setting. Let me be the first to tell you, that gallop is fast. The ears twitch independently, the mane and tails flexi-bounce as you move, and each has a unique, adorable texture.
The Wild Rumpus event has wide variety of adorable little plushy companions across the spectrum of cute critters. If you love nothing more than cuddling up with a stuffed toy, creating your own little storybook world, or simply just let your childlike imagination out for a stroll, this is definitely an event you won’t want to miss.
Remember, when the world seems too heavy, it’s okay to make a tent out of your bedspread and run through the forests of your imagination for a spell. Abandon your troubles on the withers of your companions for awhile and gallop toward the sunrise. Let the wind blow through your mane and swish your tail, carefree. Leap for the other side of the river and know your quadumvirate will be waiting with a fresh bale of hay, a bucket of ripe apples and the biggest salt lick you’ve ever seen.
Embrace the silly.
