(Cyndi Lauper intensifies)
Just a silly little thing to try to get back into the swing of drawing. Why Lyra and Derpy? I dunno, they seemed 80s-er than other ponies.
Generationally, I ended up rather falling between the poles - I was born early enough that my formative years were inflected by the 80s and the early 90s - which, let's be honest, were basically just "more late 80s" for a few years. This means that I grew up on original MLP AND Disney Afternoon but was getting too old to enjoy a lot of the key 90s kid movies like Space Jam or Toy Story when they were new. This means that I've never felt wholly as if I belonged to either decade, but I guess if I'm a product of anything, it's the late 80s - as much as one can be a product of a time when she was, like, 4, that is. This means that pure 80s cheese exerts a tidal pull on my soul that the post-Jurassic Park world does not, even if I was not strictly speaking a participant.
Which is a long way of saying: hey, 80s, let's get down. Play that Tiffany cassette!
