Pony version of me by Baron-Engel Pony version of me by Baron-Engel
Returning to my Equestria dreamscape. Over the next couple of dreams, this covered about 5 days in dreamtime, my condition improved and Charity Hooves [link] started to let me go outside under the supervision of either herself or Petina [link] . Petina so loved that concept. She can be such a control freak at times. I was just happy because I finally got a chance to get outside and see Ponyville and meet more ponies.

Also as my condition improved I was able to start taking more care of myself. At least when it came to matters of personal hygiene. Although I was still learning the most basic aspects of levitation control so Petina had to brush my back. Oh well, there are worse fates. This also gave me a better a chance to really look at myself in the mirror and see what kind of pony I was. My markings seem to be very much like those of the unicorn who I blame for getting me roped into this. Paynes Gray [link] . Unfortunately I didn't look as studly as Paynes does, but Petina Pony thinks I'm still cute in that adorkable kind of way.

This new dreamscape was very disorienting at first, but I was growing more accustomed to it. Although it was still odd having an Andur dream and then turning around and have a dream in Ponyville in the span of an evening. Kind of like switching channels on the TV with radically different programming on them.

Fortunately my improving condition let me partake in my first pony festival. The Annual Ponyville Kite Flying Festival which takes place every year over the span of about two days. It is a general holiday and everyone gets it off. In the pastures and fields around Ponyville the air was filled with the sight of brightly colored paper kites and the sound of laughter and singing. Pavilions were set up in the fields and there was all kinds of food and drink to be had. This was particularly enjoyable since one of the things that made these Equestria dreams so vivid was that I could smell and taste things in these dreams. Very often I only have sight, sound and touch. Here I had full immersion. Of course I had no bits to my name but Charity bought me and Petina a kite so we could go fly it.

There were competitions for the highest flying kite. The most beautiful kite. The most skillful kite flying, and most unusual or original kite. Pinkie Pie is apparently the regular winner of that class and she continued her winning streak this year by some how making a kite out of a cast iron frying pan.

The Pegasus ponies were in charge of the judging the various competitions. To make certain that they could clearly see all the contestants kites they made certain that every cloud around Ponyville was moved away. This had a couple added benefits.

One of the benefits of moving all the clouds resulted in there being a pleasant steady breeze which made for good kite flying. Second it guaranteed a couple days of steady sunshine right as several important crops are ripening. These crops were picked soon after the festival. This extra sunshine was usually responsible for contributing to a good harvest year after year. Later I found out from Applejack that it was Princess Celestia who originally proposed the festival.

i once had a dreamscape, it lasted 2 magnificent years. It was of elemental wolves, who wanted help from pirates. There were simple houses scattered along the beaches and oddly big waves. But the water took care of those waves. Causing no major flooding. A pirate ship came, and i attacked. That's when i learnt they were anthros. Shade seemed to want to assist me than blow me to bits. <3 it was so vivid. I wish i could go back to them. But i can only go forward from this land called Chow Chow.

Don't know. Ask Pinkie Pie. That is the answer every pony gave me. I decided there were somethings best left alone.

If you mean Petina, yes it is very nice. Even if she makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes. I don't if you've followed me before on FA, but if you stick around I'll introduce to a whole cast of characters.

i will be! Honestly i cant remember what FA is. ive heard people talk about it, though. and yeah, i meant petina. she seems... nice. xD
i have a question though. do you actually know youre dreaming as its happening? ive read about people who have dreams like this (like you can remember them and all that other stuff you can do), but they never really say if you can tell.
sorry if im being too nosy. i just find this very facinating.

A good question. let me see I can answer this clearly. Yes I usually know and can tell when I am dreaming. In fact Petina explained to me once that this was one of the reasons why many of my dreams have furries, and now ponies, in them. It is something of safety mechanism for me since my dreams can be very vivid. In fact one thing that has made the Equestria dreams so stunning is that I usually experience things with all five senses in those dreams. But if I am seeing talking candy color ponies or bipedal skunk babes then I know it is a dream and I just go with.

Another thing that helps denote the real world from the dream world is the fact that I can have dreams where I am not physically there for the scene but I can hear and see what is happening. Also I can often see myself from an outside third person viewpoint. In fact there is a whole set of apparent preset condition my subconscious has put into place for it.

Finally in some of my dreams, the Angel and Knight dreamscapes being the primary examples I will often have effectively opening and closing credits just like a TV series. In fact that is one way I can tell a dream arc has begun in them because the opening credits and music change. Does this help explain things at all?

Yeah, that explains it quite clearly actually. That truly amazes me how these dreamscapes work. The idea of them are a little odd to me also, but I think im starting to understand. I really appreciate you explaining them to me!

I love that bit at top left with Petina rubbing her horn against yours. You and Petina make such cute ponies!

Heh, given how cute and cuddly the ponies are, I do wonder how much of a problem they'd have with someone proving unable to resist petting one or giving them a scritch along the ears. The mental image I have is of said someone either getting bucked in the face or bitten.

Yeah, unicorn horns are actually rather sensitive in many ways, so rubbing horns is rather electrifying.
