HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by categoryMain: Royalty: Side: Children: Valiant Heart:Valiant goes by "Lance" Valiant's love life isn't very successful even though he's kind, charming and handsome. He's been out with quite a few ponies making him seem l
