The Paramote: The parasprite's mountain cousin. Paramotes are much less dangerous, as they do not possess the unending appetite of the parasprite (although they are able to eat anything). They also are unable to fly, instead using their four tiny legs to move about. They are protected from the harsh cold of their environment by a thick layer of white fur, and another layer of fat underneath. Only their eyes and paws are not covered, but the paramote uses its tail to cover its paws when it is at rest. It has also been said that they possess weak ice powers, however this has so far not been proven and is regarded as myth. A brief description of Pecan Praline's pet, Puffle.
Changeling feeding can ultimately be divided into three types: passive, direct, and active. Passive feeding is in many respects what one would expect: it is where the changeling simply absorbs ambient love energy from the surrounding area. It is the lowest risk option available to a changeling, requiring no interaction with other beings and a minimum of effort and concentration, and has the least impact food supply, leaving a local population in the best condition to produce more love and least likely to be on guard for future changelings. The downside, naturally, is low rate of return. It requires a large number of ponies for each changeling in an area for changelings to survive off of this method of feeding alone, and it is also the slowest method of feeding. This can be further compounded by circumstances, which can make a town or city better or worse for passive feeding depending on the prevalent attitude toward their fellows. Active feeding is essentially the polar opposite passive feeding, being comparatively fast, efficient, obvious and disruptive. Active feeding is where a changeling takes love energy by force, with no positive intent or feelings required on the part of the victim. The ability is a magical, non-spell effect of which all changelings are capable, channelled through a changeling's mouth. This approach is the fastest a changeling can acquire love to consume, but it comes with considerable downsides. The requisite ability is obvious when in use, meaning the changeling requires at least a secluded area to not be disturbed, and it drains whoever is subjected to it. In small amounts this merely causes fatigue which is easy enough to recover from, however further draining can cause more serious effects, some of which include semi-permanent loss of energy, temporary loss of or loss of control of emotions, and in extreme cases can even be fatal. The effects of this method of feeding are always visible as well, although the symptoms can be mistaken for having other causes. Direct feeding occupies an unusual middle ground between the other two methods. It doesn't harm the subject, or require any direct action on the changeling's part, but it is still one of the more difficult or risky ways to feed, and it is almost as efficient as active feeding. It uses the same mechanism as passive feeding, but in a more focused manner: direct feeding occurs when a changeling is a subject of a non-changeling's love, either by earning or disguising as someone that being already loves. The cost then is either the effort needed to earn a creature's love in the first place, or maintaining the disguise necessary to feed on love meant for another. There is a difference, it should be noted, between love and love-energy. Love is an extreme and focused affection for another, while love-energy is the magic that is produced from such a state. Changelings are capable of experiencing the former, but unlike most creatures, for them doing so does not produce the latter. They can exchanged stored love energy among each other, but they cannot produce it themselves except perhaps in negligible amounts, which is the reason why they require other creatures to feed off of. - Excerpt from An Outsider's Guide to Equestria
When looking at the three principle races of Equestria, one may be inclined to wonder what earth ponies bring to the table. In the case of pegasi and unicorns their inherent abilities are blatantly obvious; the former are able to fly, walk on clouds, and manipulate the weather; the latter have telekinesis and the ability to cast spells with nothing but their own bodies; but what do earth ponies have? They are often vaguely described as 'hardy' and 'in tune with nature', but what exactly is meant or implied by these statements is typically not entirely clear. The truth, as is so often the case, is a little more complicated. While unicorns' magic manifests almost exclusively externally, and pegasi manifestations split the difference between external and internal, earth pony magic is exclusively internally directed. As such, it is not as easy to recognize. There is little flashy about it, and it can be very difficult to separate earth pony magic from mere physical training, with enhancements to speed, strength or stamina being among the most common forms of earth pony magic. This magic is typically more passive as well, either being in constant effect though more minor effect or occurring whenever it would be helpful, as opposed to the other two tribes who must perform spellcraft or specific physical actions to make use of their natural abilities. Further and unlike the other tribes, the feats earth pony abilities are things ponies of other tribes could accomplish with enough training, although that training typically both comes easier and goes farther when done by an earth pony. Athletics are not the only applications of earth pony magic. Using their enhanced physical abilities they can achieve a degree of physical precision unmatched by typical members of the other tribes. This is likely the source of their reputation as inventors, as well as their drive to overcome limitations. They are both unable to fly or cast spells naturally, and in the best position to build devices which can overcome those difficulties. They are also capable of a sort of hypersensitivity, and it is form this that they derive their renowned skill at raising plants. While the claims that such abilities derive from earth ponies being 'more in tune with nature' are not entirely wrong, that in itself is a product of heightened awareness of the plants' states. Note that these enhancements to awareness only extend to something's biological state, hence why earth ponies are typically no better than other races at assessing someone's mental state. Still, this trait can be of big help in medical professions, alongside their capacity for plant husbandry. - Excerpt from An Outsider's Guide to Equestria
The muses have kidnapped me again and forced me to stay up way past my bedtime! Not that Im complaining. Anywho! My god I love this so much. I love this so so so very much. Thanks to music getting in my head again and giving me ideas, I decided to revisit an old headcanon of mine and update her look! (See "Alone" in my gallery!) Im still keeping mum about my headcanon, though Im willing to bet someone is bound to be thinking what my particular headcanon is. xD The coat color pretty much stayed the same, but I decided the hair color needed some good ol' lovin. And boy did I ever give it some love! It originally was going to be alot simplier, just wavy and flowy, but decided that I had way too much creative juice flowing to just have a simplier mane-style! So i spiced it up and gave it some more detail! Took longer than I wanted, but worth it! I love the colors I chose too. The hair colors were going to be alot more vibrant, but I decided that more softer shades were the way to go. My brain amazes me sometimes. xD Name? Genesis is probably going to stick.

http://vodoureligion...-21-divisiones/ http://www.ezilikonn...anaisa-pye.html http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Anaisa_Pye _ _ _ _ Sounds awfully familiar and can alternatively be spelled as Anaisa Pie. Also as far as I know, all Pagan Gods happen to eat people. Ew. Mainly posted this just for the coincidence. (Didn't know whether to try my hand at putting this into RP Suggestions, since it doesn't seem likely it would be accepted into Canterlot.com fanon lore.) (Hm, Chit Chat? Maybe?)
