         Menus, menus, menus... Looking fresh though. Still going through the process of making sure all the interfaces work and feel better than ever before. Cleaner sprites, dynamic sizing and positioning for every possible device, and helpful new tools like scrollviews and shaders to add some extra polish. Plus, it all runs 40 times smoother now since it gets compressed to one draw call at runtime, meaning no more horrendous lag just from opening a menu!

  3. Expanding on the recent theme of the last several entries...

    I've been meaning to tackle this issue for years, and am just now getting around to it.  If you're a gamer, and a regular denizen of the various interwebs, then you've probably heard the name Anita Sarkeesian at some point.  (In fact, you're probably sick of hearing that name.)  I'm not sure how relevant this issue still is, or if it's drifted away from the spotlight, but for some time, Sarkeesian was making quite a bit of noise about sexism and the misrepresentation of women in video games.

    If you're unfamiliar with Sarkeesian, it will probably only take about one minute of watching her content on youtube to know all you need to.  In short, she seems to believe that if a man finds a woman physically, sexually attractive, in any context, under any circumstances, then it's sexist and wrong.  (Perhaps a little bit of an unfair generalization of her, but it doesn't seem too far from the mark.)  She makes quite a lot of displeased noise about women being depicted as sexual objects in games, and offered as rewards and such.  Now, I happen to agree that there is indeed some problems with sexism in video games, but the solution is not what Sarkeesian would propose.  (If Sarkeesian got her way, she'd probably just destroy any hint of sex appeal in games.)

    Let's be blunt and get straight to the point.  Let's talk "bikini" armor, or "sexy" armor. Let's talk about this:



    Is it wrong to have scantily clad women in fantasy games?  Or other games?  (Mostly fantasy games.)  Is it wrong to prominently display sexuality and sex appeal this way?  Is it wrong to have women wear a ludicrously impractical metal bikini for armor?  If you've read my previous blog entry, you can probably guess that my answer to all of these questions is a resounding no.  It's not wrong.  I'm one of the most sex positive people you'll ever meet, and a huge proponent of a healthy celebration of sexuality and sex appeal, and beauty in general.  This may sound shallow to some, but I don't see it that way.  It's just another wonderful aspect of life to enjoy.  An appreciation for this part of life doesn't automatically mean an unhealthy objectification of people.  In fact, I submit that appreciating and enjoying sexual beauty, and sexually objectifying people are mutually exclusive.  I can enjoy beauty and still look at people (or even video game characters) as complex individuals.

    Back to the bikini armor--Anita Sarkeesian makes the assertion over and over again that such things are not armor.  Well, no sh*t P.I. Rarity.  Who said it was?  Of course these revealing swimsuit outfits aren't going to protect characters in battle.  It's a GAME.  It doesn't have to be realistic.  Why can't we have some sexy outfits if we want 'em?  What's the harm in that?  Is is really so evil?  Well, according to Sarkeesian, you bet your sweet patootie it is.  (Oh, whoops.  Shouldn't have said patootie.  That's evil and sexist, too.)  And Sarkeesian's answer to the question, "what's the harm?" is that is will create a society full of men who don't know how to respect women.  We're gonna be a horde of Dothraki, that's what it is.  Well, it's not true.  And I'm going to give the same response I do when it comes to children with respect to NSFW internet content: just comes down to parenting.  Watch what your kids are playing, teach them properly, demonstrate how to treat women in real life, both by your words and by example, and don't let your children play mature games until they demonstrate mature behavior.  Don't blame your problems on games, and don't expect the ESRB to do your job for you, and definitely, (and I can't stress this one enough), definitely don't take away my goddamn sexy games because you don't like 'em!!

    I love me some sexy games, and I love me some sexy characters, and I don't see anything wrong with that.  I respect women, just as I respect all people, I don't mistreat real women, and I don't objectify them, and yet I still enjoy a scantily clad fantasy game character, a phenomenon that Sarkeesian would probably deem impossible.

    So, I stated that there is a problem.  And here it is:



    The problem is that we often have sexualized female characters in revealing outfits, but their male counterparts are always these giant tanks wearing so much armor that they look more like a vehicle from Mad Max: Fury Road.  This is a double standard, and it's unfair.  (Unless you actually have a valid, story based reason for it.)  So, what's the solution?  Well, it's not to cover up all of the females, as Sarkeesian would like.  It's....*drumroll*....yup, you guess it!  Let's show some skin on the males!  Offer equally revealing, equally sexualized male variants.  I'm arguing for equality, but not equality by censorship.  I argue for equal celebration of sexual beauty.  Depending on the game, it could also make sense to offer "real", practical armor and "sexy" armor for each sex, and let players choose what they want.  Now, revealing armor and sexy outfits don't have a place in every game.  It all depends on the game.  I don't want revealing, silly armor for my Spartans in Halo.  Some games are serious business, and it would ruin the story to have impractical garbs.  Skyrim was another game that made the right choice to have practical armor.  But Final Fantasy games?!  Kingdoms of Amalur?!  Heck YEAH!  Sexy all the way!  Just offer both for players who want it, and offer the same types of outfits for male characters.

    Now, if it seems like this idea wouldn't fly, I'd like to take a moment to point out this:



    I mean, these guys are in armored bikini briefs, for Celestia's sake.  They're heavily sexualized.  Now, maybe it was actually more practical for them to be able to move, but the point is that we just need more options like this for male characters in games.  But too often, we see the armored bikini goddess, as in that first picture, and the male tank, as in the second.  Just, y'know, take a lesson from 300.  It's not rocket science.  God of War did it.  Have realistic attire in games that warrant it, have sexy attire when applicable, offer both when feasible, and offer equally revealing outfits for males.

    Incidentally, I'd like to place Warframe on a pedestal for managing to simultaneously be the most equal, least sexist, and (in my opinion) sexiest game ever made.  It is possible.

  4. I had a bad cold the past few days and I lost my sense of smell and taste. But I learned some things, for science! First, I ate some jalepeños. No taste but I felt the hot. The next day, I ate wasabi. I could not taste it but it still burned my nose, which is weird. Then today we unloaded ammonia at work. I could not smell it, but it definitely burned when I breathed some. Then, at home, I had a bottle of organic vinegar, which is supposed to be good for you. You're supposed to drink a little of it but it is gross. But, without a sense of taste, I could drink a lot. It caused me to gag and burned a little, but I drank like 5 times as much. So far these experiments have been interesting.

    Age: 19

    Gender: Male

    Species: Pegasus

    Appearance: Nova is a purple coated Pegasus with a light orange mane accented with darker streaks of golden-brown, and bright golden eyes. As a Wonderbolt, he is often seen wearing the iconic blue and cream flight suit of the squad, but typically dons a more casual hoodie when on his own time.

    Cutie Mark: Nova's Cutie Mark is a white, blue and purple shooting star; signifying both his love of free-flying speed and, more subtly, his desire to burn brightest of all Pegasi.



    Nova could be described as carrying some of the best and worst traits to any Wonderbolt. An expert athlete and accomplished flyer, he strives to become the pinnacle Wonderbolt in all of Equestria, and is constantly driven by an ambition to succeed. To this end, he is always setting himself new challenges and reaching for greater heights, and is ever encouraging others to do the same, to be the very best that they can be. He cannot stand those who try to "cheat" or fabricate their way to success, considering it a sign of cowardice, and will spare no expense in exposing the incompetence of those who attempt to do so if given the chance. There is rarely a situation that he will back down from, and is often a voice of motivation towards others, insisting that they should face their fears and overcome their weaknesses.

    In spite of this, Nova has little patience for teamwork, instead believing that everypony should trust only in their own ability and not have to rely on others for support, though he has tried, albeit with difficulty, to become more open to the idea since his lesson in humility at the hoofs of the Wonderbolts. Though he does begrudgingly hold respect for some of his fellow squadmates, as well as ponies who prove themselves to be particularly resourceful, he will generally show only cold abrasiveness to the well-being of others around him. He is not completely without heart, but any acts of altruism on his part are typically done only for pragmatic reasons, rather than out of good will.

    Above all else, Nova's pride is his greatest weakness, though he lacks the insight and maturity to understand this. He is often an unaware prisoner of his own drive, and his desire to succeed coupled with a prideful nature has slowly festered a darker side to his personality over time, causing him view all others in a condescending light and rivals toward his own "destiny", or stepping stones to be used in furthering his goals. Since being brought to the Wonderbolt's main squad, however, he has begun a slow realization to the importance of tempering that pride, but is a long way still from turning a new leaf.

    Despite his attitude towards fraudulent behavior, he is not above using cunning and underhanded methods to get the upper hand if he sees an opportunity present itself. Vulnerabilities are to be exploited, and Nova will carefully analyze every option that could give him an edge. A superior mind is just as important to him as having superior physical skill, and he will not waste any opportunity he can to prove his dominance over another.



    Even from a young age, Nova was already a natural flyer. As a colt, he idolized his heroes in the Wonderbolts, including their then-Captain Wind Rider, and frequently attended sky shows to watch the legendary squad perform, in awe of their abilities and record-breaking skills. Nova promised to himself that he would one day join their ranks and create his own legend within the group.

    Nova was present on the faithful day in one Summer Flight Camp where Rainbow Dash performed the Sonic Rainboom. Whilst shocked and amazed, he also felt bitter and envious that another young Pegasus, even younger than he was, had managed to perform such a feat that many had considered impossible. He could not bear the thought of being left in somepony else's shadow whilst his own 'legend' faded into oblivion, and thus from that day forward he vowed that he would not rest until he was considered the number one flyer; the most famous and accomplished Pegasus in all of Equestria.

    Nova continued to train for many years under this mindset, and rapidly built his reputation as one of the most promising and skilled young flyers in the land. His work paid off when he was finally accepted into the Wonderbolts reserve squad, and he begun advanced training at Wonderbolts Academy. By this time, his personal goals had become twisted to the point where simply being a part of the group was no longer enough for him. He now desired to create his own pedestal above even the legendary squad themselves, and saw his fellow peers as nothing more than rivals to be stamped out on his way to achieving what he believed was his destiny. Whilst praised for his strong flying ability, his arrogance and disinterest in working as part of a team impeded his progress. Spitfire, Captain of the Wonderbolts, often reprimanded his selfish and egocentric behavior during training sessions, and argued that he did not yet understand the true meanings behind being a Wonderbolt, the most important lessons of which were the bonds they shared with one other.

    The prideful Pegasus was only angered by this response. To him, being a Wonderbolt simply meant being one of the best, that you should be revered and envied by those 'lesser' to you. Boldly, he challenged the entire squadron to a race, furiously intent on proving that he could beat all of them on his own. Though at first reluctant, Spitfire eventually agreed on the sole condition that Nova would resign from the Reserve squad if he lost.

    Though Nova was able to hold his own, the Wonderbolts maintained a decisive advantage by supporting each other throughout the race, whilst Nova eventually lost his composure and made several critical mistakes, his arrogance ultimately becoming his undoing. In a rare display of insecurity, the Pegasus broke down after the race and begged the legendary squadron to help him understand what he had done wrong, but Spitfire simply revoked his Reserve squadron status, before announcing that he was instead being promoted to the Primary squadron, explaining to the shocked and confused Pegasus that it would be a waste for somepony of his skill and talents to remain on the Reserve team, though she warned that pure skill alone would no longer be sufficient enough to remain at this level.

    Spitfire also clarified that, in his blind obsession to win and prove only to himself that he was superior, he had lost sight of why he started flying in the first place. The Wonderbolt's captain simply asked that Nova take this opportunity to reflect on what his overzealous pride had really done for him, and hoped that this small lesson in humility would take root and teach him the value of teamwork.

    Nova has since continued to serve on the Wonderbolts within the Primary squadron, still hoping to one day reach the peak Division of the squad and fly alongside Spitfire, Soarin, Fleetfoot and (to his slight annoyance) Rainbow Dash. Although his pride still largely dominates his behavior; the sting of defeat combined with the unexpected faith Spitfire placed in him has created seeds of doubt in his mind about how he sees his future. Though for now he continues along with his goal of becoming the greatest flyer in Equestria, he is on occasion been plagued by a crisis of conscience. Only time will tell if he will elect to take a different path, or if his pride will once again overcome him.

    Hello Everyone I will longer like be active anymore, I will only be on to talk to my friend @Regal Shadow. I'm honestly realized why I left the forums in the first place and already back to the point to wanting to leave again. I'm only stay on to talk to one of my friends. I may post once or twice on this blog. I may post my some of my characters on here but besides that it's pretty much I'm gonna be all doing from now on. I'm just gonna stick to tumblr, discord, facebook, deviantart, and quotev. So regal shadow if you want to talk to me just send a message, I'l check once a week to see your messages.


  6. So I recently saw Forgotten Friendship and I am over the moon about the new outfits, mostly because the last ones were very stupid. :dry: So here’s a pic of Super Hero Sunset Shimmer!


  7. Hey.  Y'know what really grinds my gears?   Dabbing.  Like, why the f*ck is that a thing?  I didn't even know what it was for a long time.  I kept seeing it popping up on youtube, I kept seeing the word plastered all over comments, people seemed obsessed with it, so I finally googled it to find out what it is.  Okay, so it's a dance move.  Fine.  But why has it exploded into a cultural sensation and internet meme?!  Apologies if you like it, but it just seems so pointless to me!  Like, it's fine to use it as a dance move.  Nothing wrong with that.  But people seem FREAKING OBSESSED with it for no reason!  Like, it's just an arbitrary arm position, and people just flip out and burst at the seams every time anyone does it.  It doesn't even mean anything!  Like, the wiki page says it signifies triumph or playfulness.  Alright.  Fine.  Whatever.  But it's the not greatest thing ever conceived by humankind or something!  At best it should be regarded like a thumbs up or something.  I just watched an Equestria Girls short in which Rainbow dabbed, and about 80% of the comments were, "OMG RAINBOW DAB I CAN DIE HAPPY!!!!!"

    WHY??!  WHY DO YOU CARE??!!  WHAT IS THE POINT???!!  Why don't we, just, like, flip our sh*t every time someone scratches their nose?!  OMG!!!  RAINBOW SCRATCHED HER NOSE!!!!   AAAAAHHH!!!!  I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!!!  MY HEAD A SPLODE!!!!  MY LIFE IS COMPLETE!!!!

    I dunno.  I'm sorry.  I don't know why this annoys me so much.  It just seems like the most pointless and arbitrary thing to make into a meme.  I love memes....when they're funny....and actually mean something.  Like, for instance, I love how steamed hams has become a meme.  Y'know, the Skinner and Chalmers scene on The Simpsons.  That was a classic scene from my childhood, before the internet was even a thing, and it tickles me to death that a new generation has made that scene explode in popularity on the internet.  It's hilarious, but that's because it's a brilliant scene.  But wigging out every time someone moves their arms and puts their head down?  WHY??!!!


    And that, ponies, is what really grinds my gears.

  8. Holy cow, my last entry was in April?! Wow.... oops... well, I’m glad to report that my artist career is continuing well. I’ve been taking art classes taught by none other than Phil Young! If yall don’t know who he is, he is a professional animator who worked on The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, The Black Couldron, Oliver and company, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Emporer’s New Groove. So, YAY!!! I told him about my plans to work for PIXAR and he said that I have pretty good chances! :pinkie:  I think I’ll take another one of his classes soon. But for the mean time, I’ve got to think about art school. Here’s my problem: Pro—going to art school gives me better chances of getting a good job. Con—It isn’t a guarantee that I will get a good paying job.  Pro—CalArts would be my first pick. Con—I would be paying off my students loans until the day I die. (Not exaggerating) Pro—Art school can teach you a lot and prepare you for real world jobs. Con—going to art school is a scary/unknown/frazzling experience. (Probably. For me.) So does anyone have any art school suggestions, tips, or advise? Because now would be a good time to share!

    Note: I dont mention any names in this text because im not sure if i can face myself but if you know me you know what im talking about


    i dont really know what happened but somehow im feeling that im drifting away from something that i shouldnt drift away from ? its like wanting to hold onto something but still move forward? i think i've been testing the waters for about year or a half now and  its starting to feel that i've kinda lost myself in the process and it feels kinda uncomfortable.

    Part of the reason that i been more active here these days is that i been trying to get a hold of myself but the more i come across the things i used to do the more it kinda conficts with the way i do them now and im not really sure which way of doing things is for the better?

    Am i really the person who i used to be anymore at the same time it feels that i am but it also feels that i am not and im not really. But I dont really like the reasoning that i gave myself to do all these things. I've been trying to lie myself and try to start over and hide from myself and i kinda played along for awhile but now i see how messed up that was and at the end nothing feels right anymore? 

    but was all this for the better? did i grow from all of this? perhaps but i cannot undo all the crap that happened. One thing is for sure and that is that im still too insecure about myself to really act the way i would like to at certain times. I cave into my own pressure or create some kind of illusion where i live because i cant face the things as they are.

    Here is how it all started

    I didnt really mean anything to happen but  as time went on i suppose i started believing my own lies and it kind of a created the root of the whole situation that is going on with me .At heart i didnt truly accept anything i denied myself because of what i expected the expectations would be  for a while i i didnt act at all i wasnt going either way it was a standstill this was early 2014 as i learned more about who i am through channel of discoveries through exploration of myself i liked it and didnt want anything else to interfere. So i shut off everything else and put 100% into this new thing that was giving me joy. It was an illusion a bubble i realized it soon enough but because things were working out i didnt want it to change.

    The time went on and i grew more and more attached to the illusion and it really started to derail my emotional balance which i had been trying to keep intact about those times i realized that i cant keep it together any longer. so i started the damage control and widened the foundation and shared the resources so everything doesnt focus on the same  section it started slowly but but after some time both sections were operating  and well  things were going well in the illusion again i regained myself and i was able to continue. 

    After some time though the growth on both sections was not stopping and it was taking significant resources to keep it going and i knew that i couldnt keep them both as i didnt have the capacity to keep them both alive then i decided that i would go with the more stable one and let the other slow down a bit this was around 2016 or something as it slowed down i kinda started losing the illusion i kept in there aswell. I couldnt get back in there anymore it would never be like it was back then  i realized that and i didnt know what to do.

    Some time passed and i started really get uncomfortable because my illusion wasnt there as  strongly as before  i started doubting myself and the illusion.  after that i desided to separate the illusion and myself for good but now the place was truly lost for me  i didnt have anything there anymore. everything was in that illusion. i had only the other section to keep me going . but deep down i couldnt really give up the illusion it had established a big part of me and i didnt really know anything better of myself  so at this point i kinda started losing myself aswell  and the rift between the illusion and the new me became even deeper. It has become even more unclear to me who i am? and does the illusion or new me even define who i am? 


  9. The benevolent witch is a concept that was insufficiently explored with Zecora and Meadowbrook. Indeed, this is what G4 Fluttershy might have become if she was written to be a hero that is allowed to be introverted yet self-dependent and immersed in her knowledge of nature, but that door is closed now. I realize that this article contains only my selfish musings about a single path new Fluttershy might take. That said, she should not rely on her shyness and her princess-like fondness of animals to move her own story. That is a well of ideas our glorious writers have already completely exhausted, so if the whole focus of her character is to overcome social anxiety they should just give up as they are only retracing their steps plagued by old mistakes that they were tasked to address with the new generation. This is an attempt to make Mane 6 more appealing as standalone characters who can also function within a group. They need to be interesting and relevant even when you remove all the pony friends and morals.




    Unicorns are proud and narcissistic creatures that praise power and beauty above all else. In this exclusive society there is little room for those who lack ambition. Fluttershy was one such reject. She had been orphaned at a very young age due to her parents perishing by the wrath of a dragon. With only disinterested caretakers and overly competitive peers to steer her development, the shy little filly had soon been led astray by the innumerable temptations of the great outdoors. Flowers, berries, birds, and little critters of the undergrove had become her playmates and her teachers. Though not being able to understand their chirps and squeals she had begun to learn from their behavior, slowly but surely unraveling the sylvan secrets.


    One day she met a peculiar stranger: a haunting figure masked in green, it was nor a unicorn nor a deer. Silently it beckoned her onto long forgotten trails leading her deeper and deeper into the woods. There, among the tall dark trees stood a hollowed trunk dressed in moss and lichen. Inside she found an abandoned lair of a forest witch filled with dusty tomes, rusty cauldrons, and strange instruments of unknown purpose. She knew that she should have been scared but she was not. She was home.




    From the tomes she learned how to heal, how to poison, how to perceive, how to summon. She even found a way to finally understand the language of her forest friends in earnest Slav magic. Their whispers spread swiftly among the crooked branches and she soon began discovering more and more ill and injured creatures waiting on her doorstep. Another witch was born, and with her yet another forest tale about an evil enchantress preying upon curious foals to turn them into a tasty stew in her big bubbling cauldron.


    However, nothing lasts forever, and so even her blissful solitude comes to an end. A ragtag group of strange ponies is seeking refuge in the dark woods, chased out of the glamorous unicorn capital by an overwhelming might of a great evil that has followed them into the shard. The powerful unicorn magic has been undone. And so the last pony reluctantly joins forces with the group in desperate search for magic that will be able to save their shards from destruction.


    (Origin story is explored after the Movie)



    Fluttershy is not a proficient mage. She can lift smaller objects and handle them with great care which makes her an excellent medicine mare but not much else. Her projectiles are more distracting flares than spells of destruction. She likes to form and manipulate glowing illusions, especially butterflies. Her patients absolutely love it. Speaking of patients, her lair is home to one sad squonk and a couple of ferocious giant snails that guard it from ill-natured would-be intruders. But to say that Fluttershy does not have arcane potential would be false. Witchcraft draws from nature but can also summon it to aid in time of need. Only a fool would try to assail a witch on her home turf.


    You scratch my back and I'll scratch your enemies




    Fluttershy is quite talkative in the company of most forest creatures. She also enjoys singing and mumbling (menacingly) to herself while gathering ingredients or brewing potions. However, she is far more reserved in the company of ungulates which is probably for the best since her tongue can be quite sharp and insensitive, especially towards other unicorns whom she views as mean and ignorant. The barrier between Fluttershy and Flutterjerk has become tenuously thin, as has the barrier between her and Flutterbat. As is befitting of those who walk the green path, she is as kind and nurturing as she is wild and relentless. But do not mistake her behavior for mindless courage. Her senses are remarkable and she tends to turn tail on danger like any smart creature would. A tree can grow back, a pony cannot. The forest does not produce heroes but survivors.


             When you meet her                                                                                                 When you befriend her



    Making her a visually cute nature expert should be a priority; however, giving more attention to an enticing "bad" side can create ample opportunities for character development and humor. With proper caution and smart dosing, such blasphemous poison can do wonders in elevating the character. In time, Fluttershy could move closer to her G4 counterpart without falling into the trap of stagnation since her new circumstances and convictions support stories on the basis of her as a forest witch and not as a pony who just needs to become more assertive. Consider this a vastly superior upgrade from Sunset/Starlight development model.



    I believe I'm speaking for all the neckbeards when I state that giving Flutts an Asian VA with a kawaii voice would be very acceptable desu. Diversity, my dudes!

  10. Hello, everypony

    Sorry for inactivity. We are still working on the animation. We are going to switch from 3ds max to houdini, a better program for animation. 

    We still need help from more animators. please contact me by email if you are interested.

  11. Hello, everyone!

    I don't often post blogs, but I feel like I've got something to say...

    Since finding out about the death of our friend, @TempestShadow, I just wanted to say that I feel like this is a reminder that we should be grateful for everyone in our lives because, for all you know, it could be the very last time you see somebody and you will end up regretting it... 

    Although not always in the form of death, there are a lot of people I miss in my life who I've lost, be it friends, family members and even my girlfriend, sometimes without knowing what happened to them, and I honestly regret that I did not spend enough time with them, and it does make me feel like I should get back in touch with these people, even though I'm not sure how I'm going to contact them again, and I don't want to lose anyone else. :( 

    Going off topic, I feel like everything that has been going on so far in this year has been a bit of a "wake up call" so to speak, and if there is anything you feel like you need to fix, you should probably go fix it before it's too late, and if you feel like you need to do or say something, you should probably do it, because the world isn't going to wait...

    But most importantly, cherish the time you spend with those you love, and make the most of it, because you never know when it will be the last time you see someone...

  12. Well, chapter 2 is done, and waiting for proofreading! Now I'm about to start on chapter 3, and after yesterday I'm more than ready to work on a new chapter, what with all the corrections I had to make. For some reason I kept messing RD's dialog - and only hers - that's what was so weird about it, made her sound like she was drunk as hell lol! I mean we had such gems as, "We got fin te uters Rarity!" and lets not forget, "Don't Twilight worry! The cavalry are her!" and the ever memorable, Their Pinkie for it now in!". Seriously, I have NO idea why I couldn't RD with my writing on this one, though I got to admit, now I want to write a scene for Rainbow where she's completely b-snamered off her plot just for the s&g's :lol:. Also, because I'm going to have to write some none-English words at some point for my fic, I had to set up an English-international keyboard setting. Care to know how long that took?...2 hours and 44 minutes, of research, setting and resetting my computer, sobbing, screaming and cursing out every deity I could think, and just generally fighting with microsoft...again:glimmer:. I get into it with them at least once a month, and sadly I've got waaaayyyy to much stuff  connected to their services to just drop them...and I think they know it, is the worst part, and all just so I could type this, "ö" witch let me tell you - even after all the work I did just to make typing that possible - involves the single most convoluted series of button-input combos just to type that one little letter, that I have ever seen IN MY LIFE, PERIOD! was fun...:maud:. That's (hopefully) all behind me now, so its off to chapter 3 with me, see you next time! :love:           

  13. Today I talk about the recent announcement of Nickelodeon rebooting Blue's Clues! :D


  14. 1536997__safe_artist-colon-crecious_oc_o

    Doctor Mesme, a Snakepony that is obsessed with health and medical science, likes to dwell in jungle areas. He overreacts even at the littlest things, such as a simple sneeze or cough. He enjoys conversation about medical science and other relating stuff.

    HP: 80
    ATK: 30 (Attacks with blue attacks, because if the "patient" is not still, it will cause pain.)
    DEF: 55

    Doctor Mesme attacks with syringes and Stethoscopes, and other medical/health items.
    He uses green attacks, which are lollipops. (This attack happens if you let him inspect you, and he will reward you for being a good patient.)

    Opening Battle Dialogue: [Doctor Mesme slithers forth.]

    Check: Doctor Mesme - ATK: 15, DEF: 55. His Stethoscope makes him look very legit.

    Talk About Health: [Doctor Mesme seems delighted in the conversation.]


    Yeah, just a silly thing i thought up. :P

  15. I had an absolutely amazing day, so let me walk you through the experience.

    Oh boy.


    The day starts off by me waking up late for school. Not too late, but I start rushing. I get dressed, shave (I look horrible with facial hair), eat breakfast, brush my teeth, grab my laptop and my headphones. My stomach then starts to hurt, so I make a beeline to the bathroom and it's not too pretty. Once I'm done, I realised something...

    I didn't do my chemistry homework.

    I immediately whip out my worksheet on nitinol and start working away. I try to work quickly, without half-assing it. At this point, my mum is wondering what on Earth I'm doing, but I finish the sheet so it's okay. I get her to write me a note and I leave for school. Fast forward and I'm at my first class, technology. My friends and I always make snide comments towards each other, it's kind of our humour. I make a comment to my friend, (who is essentially a closet brony by the way) and the teacher somehow overhears me and gets angry at me. Marvelous. It's then snack time, and due to my metabolism suddenly changing, I actually bring food as opposed to starving myself. It's a nice, healthy pear...which tasted rotten.

    We later have an assembly, and I help set up the chairs and tables. As per usual, only very few of us help. Despite my effort, I end up sitting at the back by myself, because 'I didn't get a seat fast enough', for the third week in a row. The topic for the assembly was, if you believe and do something good, good things will happen.


    After that trainwreck of an assembly, I have chemistry. I submit my homework sheet, and to my surprise, the teacher hands back a test we did a fortnight ago. I didn't fail luckily, but I literally just passed. I had the exact passing score, which is weird, because I normally do better than that. Perhaps it's a sign to stop being lazy.

    Then it's lunch, and I think to myself, 'what else can go wrong?'.

    Then, do you know what happens?


    I rip my pants. 


    I'm not talking about a small rip, I'm talking about a giant tear which exposes my bottom.

    I could've always covered the tear with my coat, which is true.

    Except there's one problem. Today was the only day so far, in the whole year, which I left my coat at home. Because of this, I had to borrow a friend's and cover myself with it. It looked rather strange, but it was better than exposing my bottom to everyone.

    After this absolute disaster of a day, I go home and try to relieve some stress. I get a cramp in my right leg.

    I don't know about you guys, but today was fantastic!

  16. Sorry that my other days haven't been recorded, but I'll do today's. In the weight room, I did 3x10 on power cleans, squats, pushdowns, bench press and 100 JR.

    Then went outside and ran on the track. 400m jog- 100m jog, 100m sprint, 100m jog, 100m sprint- 400m walk, and then the 2nd sequence again. Jumped on a trampoline, played basketball in pe.

    About to do 25 pushups and take a nice cool shower.


  17. I decided to spend some of my tax refund and buy an Xbox One X. I am happy with it despite not being able to take full advantage of what the console offers due to me not having a 4K TV. I have tried a lot of the games that are enhanced and I have to say that I like being able to have the option between the performance and resolution. Given most of the time I have to choose performance because I have no 4K TV. Games like Rise of the Tomb Raider run noticeably smoother as do games that are not enhanced. For example, I play a lot of Dead by Daylight and the frame rate can be kind of jittery on the base Xbox One, but on the X it runs much smoother. All in all I am satisfied with it.

    So, I am looking to sell my old Xbox One, but I am not really sure how much to sell it for. A store around where I live will pay $100, but I am wondering if it is worth it to try and see if I can get more. 

  18. The Artist Formerly Known as Night Shine
    Latest Entry


    Not sure who remembers me, but I posted here a lot in 2012-14 as "Night Shine." After dealing with some personal issues and losing interest in MLP for a while, I became interested in MLP again over the last year-ish, largely due to reading fanfics.

    I wanted to share some random musings I had relating various philosophy ideas to MLP, and I thought this the right place to post them. For example, I just made a post contrasting teleological ideas in MLP and Steven Universe. I initially intended to make a new account, since I am fairly embarrassed by how overly emotional and melodramatic I acted before. Since that is against the rules, though, I am using this account again.

    I do not know how much/often I will be participating in the forum community generally. Still, hi! Hopefully some people here will find my ramblings interesting.
