My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic, is your atypical MLP fighting video game. (I say "atypical" because it's one of the few that are actually GOOD and not run by greedy cooperate business men who actually tempt me into buying into their cheap antics). Personally, I'm not a fan of the fighting genre. Based on opinion and observation, I find the fighting community to be full of toxic competition and many sore losers who are shown to the front door long before a round is over. The games for me are too complex with thousands of mediocre combos and silly statistics that are practically pointless the second you realize spamming buttons works just as well. I have a copy of Fighting is Magic because I found it in the very early entries of Equestria Daily's "news". It still works and runs in its "Tribute Version" which I've discovered to be the most stable version out there (others are filled to the brim with bad OCs, sprites, and terrible animations).

But what was I doing with a fighting game? I honestly don't know; I was bored. Nonetheless, I wanted to change things up and hopefully have a good time. Yeah, something like that. 

 

Now, at the time I downloaded this game, I was on my original laptop. Desktop 1.0, the "Big Blue"; I've wrote about it many times before (see my "Eulogy"). However, I only played for about 5 minutes before realizing I don't play fighting games and I really should go back to playing Assassin's Creed I or something else to my speed. One (or two) years later, I found myself digging through my external and discovered it had been collecting dust along with Stranded Deep 0.01 and FNAFWorld 1.0. So, for old times sake, I decided to boot it up and give it another shot. Around this time, I was on my second laptop, Desktop 6.0 (Black Chromium), but after a night of falling through floors in Ubisoft's, "Assassin's Creed: Unity", my laptop was exhausted and needed a few days off. 

Gladly, I gave it; so in turn, I looked to Desktop 4.0 (The Typewriter) for help. The Typewriter has been my essential writing computer for the last year and had been the birthplace of many fanfictions and art alike. The downside, (it used to be called, "the Brick") is that it runs on the horrendous Windows XP and is capped by its extremely under-powered hardware. So I had to find a game (that was still on my external) that was able to run on a pocket calculator. Most of the games I had on me were from the 7th generation of consoles and still don't run quite right on my regular computer, so those were immediately out of the query. FNAFWorld had resolution issues and I really didn't feel like playing Scott Cawthon's, "There is No Pause Button" for the sake of beating it at least a hundred times. That left Fighting is Magic; and, to my surprise, it ran rather nicely on "the fossil" with the exceptions of continuous lag issues and the occasional crash because of its simple stupidity.

Fighting is Magic: Tribute Edition, is probably the only game I know that can be both GOOD and BAD at the same time. It's well made, and that's good; but it's also really punishing and extremely frustrating for the smallest imperfections (and that's bad). The bots in the game are so incredibly hard at first, there is literally no reason to push any further. Like most fighting games (even of this era), once you get trapped in a corner, you might as well give up. Spamming buttons won't break you free and trying to grab the enemy won't do anything (not that it's a feature in Fighting is Magic). I'm seriously still stuck on what to do and I've finally been blessed with finishing the game. Characters are difficult to use and the only well-balanced ponies to choose from is Rainbow Dash. Yeah, there's only one. There's no reason to bother with any of the other characters because they're either next to impossible to master or so incredibly ridiculous that even the bots don't know how to use them (Pinkie Pie). To my understanding, there are unlock-able characters like Derpy and Gilda, but I'm not too keen on replaying the game until my keys fall off. 

Many of the fighting styles for each character is actually rather similar. Rainbow Dash feels like the first character implemented in the game as she has the most well-rounded move set around. Everypony else feels like some sort of clone that've been tweaked just enough to be unique. Some ponies have to be taken down up close and others have to be kicked around from afar, but they still maintain a similarity that rings throughout the roster.

---

Overall, it's a fun little game with a lot of cool little kicks in it to keep it alive. It'd be really nice to see if they still use it for competitive use at BronyCon (although, by now, I'm sure they're using the more recently published, "Them's Fighting Herd" for a more stable experience). If you intend on experiencing this game for yourself, be sure to use a controller or something similar. Pressing Diagonally on a keyboard is difficult in tense situations (you'll probably be spamming keys anyway). Link to the EQD page down below (hopefully it's still up).

Welcome back!

And I see I'm not the only one who's changed. MLPForums is looking snazzy at best. I like a few of the features they added (like live notifications), but I see they've misplaced a few things (why get rid of the blog covers???). Ah well, I suppose there's nothing to change there. 

 

So what exactly did I do over my break? Nothing much, but I did get to play through the entire "Stranger than Fanfiction" event on the MLP Gameloft game. I managed to make it to 101st place, missing Dr. Cabellaron by 6 tokens. Disappointment hurts. (I couldn't even get QuibblePants because I fell asleep on the last night.) Other than that, I've been working Blender 3D like an underappreciated farming tool and trying to make something presentable of myself. I've been trying to work with the visual arts, but I eventually found myself running back into writing and starting yet another fiction. I simply love inspiration, never fails to hit you when you're the most busy. 

 

So what is this entry about? Why the clickbait title? (The hype for the movie has gotten to the point where the very mention of a "MLP Movie" draws attention) Well, for the sake of the movie, my dearest Scribe (the man who wrote the notes on the original Ponycrush experience entry) and I were lucky enough to get a hold of the original MLP Movie from 1986 and boy, what a trip. Before I start digging into the story and whatnot, let me just say: the movie isn't bad. It was gutsy for a girls' show at the time and it's still rather fun to watch. The animation is good and (with a pinch of delusional zest) can be rather humorous. So without further ado, let's jump into the original moments that created the phenomenon none of us can seem to get out of (not that we'd want to, of course). 

The MLP Movie, believe it or not, begins with singing. Who would've known? Personally, I think the songs in the movie weren't too much to gloat over. Some of them were easy to listen to while others made me want to crawl under my bed until the Smooze blew over (but you know, nothing can stop the Smooze [except the fluttershy]). Many of the songs were there for the sake of time while others were placed to progress the plot, whatever that means. They were all extremely forgettable and I'm not going to be buying the soundtrack anytime soon. 

 

---

The basis of the MLP Movie was about two (or three) witches who don't like ponies and they try to flood the land with their steamy ooze and turn the "little" ponies into toys for marketing. But of course, the ponies don't like that because they are secretly allergic to type-2 plastic and are afraid of being recycled. The witches try to calm the little ponies down by encasing them in some other kind of plastic that I don't know the name (they hang them upside down with their legs all oozed up), but the ponies still don't like it so they retaliate and try to involve the humans. Soon enough, "Big MAmMA" witch comes in and says to the other two witches, "Nothing can stop the DMCA". And so the humans were placed in a forest in the middle of nowhere and remained useless for the remainder of the movie.

But that last remark wasn't entirely true as the humans run into a communistic utopia filled with glitter-loving butterflies (breezies?) who want nothing other than to indoctrinate the humans. The leader of the humans, some 6 year old girl design to represent the target demographic, says, "Okay; but first, you gotta help us dissolve the DMCA". Plot twist, the communistic society (run by Starglimmer Lightshimmer) was actually the world's number one law firm and was determined to help anyone in need of settling copyright violations. So with hooves in hooves, the Sohooviets marched to the three witches and gave them a lot of white powder and they were never seen again.

The ponies sang a plethora of instant-hit songs such as: 

-"Nothing can stop the Hasbro"

-"Fundle my Grundle"

-"Keep Calm, Flutter On, and Quit Stalin"

-"I Get Smoozed"

-"The Foreign Far-East Song (They Can Do the Dirty Work)"

And of course, the all-time favorite!

-"My Little Pony: Payday is Here at Last"

If you're in for some pre-hype MLP Movie [2017] fun, feel free to watch the movie (for old time's sake). It's not bad, not at all.

 

It's good to be back (again).

SO I WAS DROPPED WITH A BIG BOMB THIS MORNING. IT'S ALRIGHT, NOTHING SPECIAL. JUST A FEW BRAND, SPANKIN' NEW, HASBRO-LICENSED, OC PONIES THAT SOMEHOW ARE GOING TO MAKE IT TO THE BIG SCREEN. IT'S NOT LIKE THEY STOLE THEIR IDEAS FROM DEVIANTART OR SOMETHING, NAH . . . NOT AT ALL :)

 

BEFORE I START, I'D LIKE TO GIVE A LITTLE ANNOUNCEMENT. I APOLOGIZE FOR MY LACK OF POSTING. SCHOOL'S GOTTEN ME DOWN, SO WE'VE BEEN A LITTLE BUSY. I'M SURE I'VE SAID THIS A THOUSAND TIMES BEFORE, BUT WE'RE WORKING ON SOME BIG PROJECTS. MORE SPECIFICALLY, WE'RE LOOKING FOR AN ARTIST WHO WOULD BE WILLING TO DRAW SOME HOUSES. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED, GIVE ME A HOLLER WHEREVER YOU DEEM FIT. WE'LL TRY TO WORK OUT THE DETAILS. KEEP IN MIND, THIS IS OUR SECOND PROJECT. OUR FIRST IS STILL GOING THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS AND WILL (MOST LIKELY) BE FINISHED BEFORE AUGUST. THANKS!

 

NOW, BACK TO TODAY'S TOPIC: THE MY LITTLE PONY MOVIE (2017). FOR SO LONG, I HAD MY HOPES SET ON THIS MOVIE; BUT, AFTER SEEING WHAT THE OFFICIAL MLPMOVIE TWITTER HAS SENT ME, I'M NOT SO SURE ANYMORE. FIRSTLY, EVERYTHING (AND I MEAN EVERYTHING) LOOKS LIKE A BAD OC RIPPED STRAIGHT FROM DEVIANTART. IF YOU'VE SEEN THE CAST OF CHARACTERS, YOU'LL KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT; BUT IF YOU HAVEN'T, HERE'S AN IDEA OF WHAT'S TO EXPECT FROM OUR GRAND, OSCAR-WINNING BRONY WORSHIP FILM:

 


C4UZiX7UMAARjzy.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

C4Uaz-bVMAEtLUs.jpg

 


OH BOY. DON'T YOU LOVE FURRIES IN YOUR PONIES MOVIES? IMAGINE IF OPAL, RARITY'S CAT, HAD SUDDENLY GROWN LEGS, PUT ON A SWANKY JACKET, AND BEGAN TALKING LIKE BRAD (FLASH SENTRY). THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DEALING WITH HERE. WELL, AT LEAST THAT'S HOW I'D VOICE THIS CHARACTER. BRAD. (HOW MUCH YOU WANNA BET THIS CHARACTER IS FROM VANHOOVER?)

 

SECONDLY, AND THE FIRST PIC, WE'VE GOT EDGY BLADEBURN, I.E., YOUR STEREOTYPICAL EDGY, REVENGE PLOT, FOUGHT TO PROTECT HER PEOPLE, BROKEN HORNED, MEME CHILD VOICED BY SOMEONE WHOSE LAST NAME IS LITERALLY, "BLUNT". MIGHT AS WELL GET SNOOP DOGG TO DO THIS ONE.

 


C4UTWPSUYAA6t9e.jpg

 


HMMM . . . I SWEAR. HE LOOKS LIKE A CROSS BETWEEN RUSSELL CROWE AND SHAWN CONNERY . . . HUH. I WOULD'VE HIRED BRAD PIT FOR THE PART, BUT WHATEVS. ANYWAY, LOOK EVERYONE! IT'S TIREK'S LONG FORGOTTEN COUSIN! I WONDER WHY HE NEVER MENTIONED HIM! WOW, WHAT'S WITH THAT BODY ARMOR? I DIDN'T KNOW HASBRO HAD A CONTRACT WITH LEGO! JEE, WHY DON'T WE HAVE PONY LEGOS AGAIN?

 

THE OTHER OCS LOOK ALRIGHT. "QUEEN NOVA" (THE SHOTGUN, FOR ALL YOU FELLOW CS:GO PLAYERS), IS LIKE ONE OF THOSE SEAPONIES FROM G1. SO IF I DECIDE TO WATCH THE MOVIE (AFTER SEEING THIS, I'VE GOTTEN SOME DOUBTS), EXPECT TO HEAR SOME SHOOBEDOO IN THE CHEAP SEATS.

 

OTHER THAN THAT, I REALLY HOPE THIS MOVIE DOES WELL. IF IT DOESN'T, THEN I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO. WITH THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING, THE MOVIE DOESN'T LOOK TOO PROMISING. I LOVE YOU, MLP; BUT THIS IS A LITTLE TOO FAR. I'M GONNA PACK MY SUITCASE FOR THE MOMENT'S NOTICE. PLEASE DON'T SCREW THIS UP, HASBRO. FOR ONCE, I BEG OF YOU, DON'T DO IT.

 

THANKS,
-RE, THE WANNA-BE HORSIE FAMOUS BUT TOO IGNORANT AND LAZY TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, PUB

First thing I want to say is: CC sucks and today I wore a pony shirt everywhere. How cool is that?

 


Wow, February 2nd? Has it been that long? What have I been doing all this time?

Huh. When did I buy that again? Ah well.

So last month, I purchased tickets for the infamous, "PAX SOUTH 2017". It was only for a single day, but I felt that was enough to satisfy my gaming taste buds. In a sense, it was; but there was still much adventure to be had.

 

And by adventure, I mean Switch. Nintendo Switch was there. I had the amazing experience of waiting in line for 3 hours just to play Legend of Zelda (another hour-half to play the other games). It's gotta be the most innovative thing I've ever come across (the lines). In order to wait in line for the Switch, you had to travel all the way to the back of the convention center (near these really damp pipelines and whatnot) just to stand in line that moved once every forty-minutes. Of course, everyone had their 3DS (I wish I had), so I doubt many of them even knew there was a line. In fact, during the "Pitch Your Game" panel (really funny, btw), there was this mirror ceiling that, by looking at it, you could count all the little screens from about 300 different people. Damn, I really wish I'd brought my 3DS. . .

 

So! What else did the convention have to offer? Why, it's the VALVE STORE, of course! Buy CS:GO Pins for $10.00 (In a blind bag)! What are the ratios? 1:1 Baggage. There are no others. However, no Valve store is without a few delicacies. There were no Steam Sales, but they did have a killer CS:GO Desk-Wide Mouse Pad for a good $34.99 (kys myself). I also bought a Corsair gaming mouse . . . but that wasn't from Pax. . .

 

But the REAL gem of PAX was the We Love Fine market. They had EVERYTHING anyone would want. Costumes? Check. Board games? Check. Overpriced pins? Check. T-Shirts? Check. PONY SHIRTS???? Double Check. Yes, I bought myself a pony shirt for only 25 bucks . . . talk about roadside robbery. . . On the plus side! I wore it all day today (Feb 2nd)! Got no reaction from anyone 'cause people were too busy looking at their phones.

 

All in all, the convention was great! I got a few famous League of Legends players to sign my badge and even saw the entire team of Luminosity (After their spanking defeat in an Overwatch National) in a nearby restaurant! Don't worry, Luminosity. I still love ya for being there. (I don't watch much eSports, but I've been getting into the CS:GO Tournies)

I know it's been a while (and my writing's a little rusty), but I'm going to (again) try to get back into the rhythm. Considering the move, there's going to be a lot more activity in my life, so I'll be pushing more daily entries out there. Not sure if you noticed the change in cover formats (concerning the inclusion of the Seasons and Episodes), but I figured it'd be easier if it were designed that way. I've been getting a bit more corporate since the turn of 2017; it's gonna be a big year; strap yourselves in, we're going in with a bang!

 

On other news, I'm hosting a movie night (hopefully) every Friday night at 6PM Central. (If I'm not there, spam me until I answer) This is going to be on my "RabbitCast" room; so if you're interested in weekly movie nights, we discuss the film on our Discord server! Feel free to jump into the action there :)

 

Update on the 5k Special: I have the cover for it done, but I'm going to need a bit more time to redo the session with my Scribe (the world-renowned, "dood" who took notes last time). It's been a long time since we first pulled it off; we're going to need more time to fix my dulled memory. (At this rate, it'll be a 10k special)

 

Other than that, all is good; I'll see you on the flip side! (Be sure to check the links at the bottom)

YYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

 

 

 

Okay, back to my mopey "Arial 14".

 


So last week, I touched ground in the good 'ol US of A! It was quite a ride and I slept not a wink knowing that just across the ocean was the land of opportunity. Don't get me wrong, I've been to America before, but never in a sense of "moving". Y'see, before, it was more of, "Don't worry, we'll eat these burgers next year. Then you'll really have a taste for them."
Now it's something along the lines of, "Damn, why did I eat so many burgers? I'm never going to eat again."
In the words of GRAND MOM, "Life is like a bad sandwich. You keep taking each bite hoping it'll get better. Next thing you know, you've finished the sandwich."
(You bet I'm bolding that. I expect to see that in the "PonyVerse Yearbook", I wanna see my face plastered over the "Least Likely to Succeed" title bearing my name, "RiPalityPublishing: The Worst Blogger, but a Great AWP.") (Make it happen, mods. Please. We can let it be our little secret. I won't tell anyone I bribed you.)

 

(If you couldn't tell by now, it's great to be back)

 


SO! What's new in America compared to Jampam? Sizes, people, ghetto, technology (a slight demotion), and, of course, the first thing I see while greeted into this great country:

 

BAD AIRPLANE SECURITY

 

(Talk about kicking 2017 off with an exciting one. . . a rant about air-marshals)

 

So what's so bad about American security? Well, the first thing is where to begin. . .

 

Y'see, the problem with America is that for some reason we have this strange philosophy where in order to simplify something, we have to over-complicate it first. And with a herd of fumbling Americans "RushB"-ing through the lines, it gets very, very messy. So how do you complicate something as simple as a line? Aren't customs supposed to be a "get from Point-A to Point-B without getting your toothpaste stolen"? Not in America (save for the toothpaste part). Nope! Here's how they have it set up:

 

Firstly, separate the lines into two; one for priority (which is bogus since no one uses it) and other being the economy skrubs (like me). Whichever line you take doesn't matter because you'll always get lost in the heat of customs.

 

Second, split the two lines again into four different x-ray machines. Sure, that sounds simple enough on paper. More machines equals faster progress, right? Ehh . . . not when you've got a lot of extra crap being separated from the luggage just so they can do a "security check".

 

Now, everything up to this point is rather straight forward. You follow lines, get caught in a bit of lag, what's the deal? Y'see, if you've ever been in the gaming affair long enough, you'll learn about a little something called, "RNG", or "Random Number Generator"; it determines random hit ratios, health points, to critical hits (Don't worry, I just looked it up). Why am I bringing this up? Because only at American airports do they have, "RIB", which, of course, stands for: "RANDOM INSPECTION BULLSHNIKIES". (Seriously, what else?)

 

I usually comply with the terms of the officials, but today was something a little different. That was my last flight leaving from Aussie, Texas and it was scheduled to leave approx. 15 minutes after our previous flight landed. So we were in a bit of a rush and getting through security wasn't on our list of priorities.

 

Fun fact: My father, about seven or so years ago, gave me this nifty little external hard drive that I still use to this day. On the back, however, is the coolest part. It's got this two-inch green sticker that reads: "This medium is unclassified U.S. Government Property". How cool is that?

 

So as we're sprinting through the lines, I noticed one thing odd. The security guard operating the x-ray, pulls aside my prized gift: Desktop 6.0 (My new laptop). At that moment, my head was spinning. What's wrong with my laptop? Do I stash weed in my sleep? What kind of "hazards" do my 2015-built HP productivity laptop have that someone else's doesn't?

 

We were held up for quite a while. I had to ask one of the "officers" why my laptop was "stolen". His answer?

"It's been selected for a random check"


Here's where the harddrive comes in. Y'see, I'm a really big wire-carrier. If you see me carrying a backpack, chances are, it's got about 5 pounds of wires and other electronics. (Always gotta be prepared, amiright?)

 

And just behind my laptop, ON THE SECURITY BELT, was a big 'ol, green crate of wires (all from me), with that silly little hard-drive (suspicious as it is) and enough copper-wire to build me a taser. Did they touch it? Nope! They didn't even look at it. But of course, they go for the laptop, the only thing that "looks" suspicious enough for a random check. I don't know if they're going by numbers, or by pure dumb luck; but they really should consider a better way of playing RN-Jesus.

 


When we finally arrived at the hotel, it turns out they inspected my baggage for "hazardous materials" as well. At least they folded my clothes.

I realized I've written 5 MLPForum pages of these blog entries; Happy New Year, everypony! (I'm still trying to find the photos for the 5k special. At that time, it'll probably be 6k. Rip me.)

About two days ago, on an island


far, far, away. . .

 

 

 

PONE WARS

 

 

 

 

 

EPISODE II

 

 

 

GAMELOFT STRIKES BACK

 

 

 

 

 

Now, I wasn't going to ANOTHER one of these, but about two weeks ago, during my CRUSADE toward the other side of the world, I was looking at the MEDIOCRE laptops in a convenience store (laptops in a convenience store, how about THAT?). Normally, I'd simply fiddle around with them and CRITICIZE how bad they are (2.5Ghz SINGLE core? What is this? The 90s?); but this time around, something caught MY EYE. On the start menu was a little blue icon with a loopy "G", signifying the ever-so triumphant, GAMELOFT. My timing was bad, but never before had curiosity grown on me. I began to wonder if My Little PONY could be played on WINDOWS 10.

 

 

 

When I got HOME, I pulled open my NEW laptop and began to search the store for anything resembling my FIANCE'. Finally (after about three seconds), I managed to find a copy of the famed, "HASBRO simulator" dubbed, "My Little Pony: A GAMELOFT game". Here's where things got a bit complicated.

 

 

 

FIRSTLY, the game is so outdated, they're still pulling up Equestria GIRLS promotions (which was equally bad as it sounds. It's some kind of RHYTHM game, but it's got a really bad delay of about 0.75 SECONDS). And the HUD is about as old as Windows 98 (This version dates back to 2013).

 

 

 

Unlike the LAST, this version had hardly any lag. In fact, it ran at a smooth 180FPS . . . when it wanted to. Ever so OFTEN, the game would drop to a dead HALT at the worst times. "Want to grab that apple that's falling on the other SIDE of the screen? WHOOPS, let's drop the frame-rate to 12 and forget this was going to happen". It does that QUITE often and always at the most inconvenient of times (like that STUPID EQG dance party mini-game)

 

 

 

A lot of the THINGS here are the same as what I said in the ORIGINAL post. It's a waiting simulator that only runs BETTER because it's a Windows 10 counterpart. Despite this, I still MANAGED to have fun by burning all of Ponyville's REVENUE and forcing all the MARES to work for low wages, basically creating Gameloft's COMMUNIST dream society.

 

 

 

One thing that, REGRETFULLY, remained the same were the loading times. Now, in WINDOWS 10, apps that work like programs are SUSPENDED whenever the person clicks off them or MINIMIZES them. That's fine and all, but when you're DOWNLOADING updates? It resets EVERYTHING and you have to start it all over again. For a game that already had LOADING issues, it was pretty bad and took me 6 HOURS to downloading something with bad HOTEL internet. Nice thing is that after that FIRST boot, everything goes back to normal and you can spam your Twitter feed with as many horses as you want.

 

 

 

The BETTER thing about this version is that I could ACTUALLY experience all the game has to offer. (Such as BAD minigames and other DELICACIES)


A lot of the minigames are the same, do the task at HOOF and earn some points. Problem is, it gets really repetitive and you'll soon find out that you earn the same amount of EXP per game (I'm looking at you, TELESCOPE game [which is harder with a MOUSE).

 

 

 

The game still costs a lot to play. Not so much REAL currency, but the bits are just as bad. Buying is a pain and really scrapes you dry. ONE problem with buying is that it NEVER tells you just how much money you'd be making with a new SHOP, forcing you to blindly punch numbers into a calculator to find the bits per SECOND ratio. (Yay, SCHOOLWORK)

 

 

 

Eventually, like many of you I'm sure, got TIRED of the waiting and remembered a little trick. CHEAT ENGINE, the problem solver of the world. Within this MAGICAL program is a SPEEDHACK, which can UNLIMIT the FPS in the game; thus, making me more MONEY. As soon as I remembered it, I downloaded and submit my COMMUNISTIC Ponyville to EXTREME measures (Pinkie Pie style). Now we're happy to announce that we're making 10,000 BITS every twenty seconds.

 

 

 

So that's GAMELOFT'S PONY GAME, from what I've heard, there's a co-op mode where you can play with others. I've got a friend who might be able to help with that; so if all goes well, I'll UPDATE this story and add an EPISODE III.

 

 

 

No this is NOT the 5k special.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank everyone for reaching the 5000 view count. Seriously, I don't think I've ever reached a number that big for any of my work. Thank you for everything; it's been a wonderful holiday season. Secondly, no, this is not the special. This entry is simply me writing a review for something that happened two hours ago. I'm working on the special; I've gotta fix up the images in photoshop and I'll go over a few notes. I've been backed up with two new entries (a first) so I've got about one more entry after this and I'll be releasing the special.

 

Thank you everyone, it means a lot.

 


SO! Watch_Dogs, Watch_Dogs, Watch_Dogs. If I got a nickel every time I mentioned that card-board cutout of a game, I'd be rich. So where to begin. Let's see . . .

 

As many readers may or may not know, I've been in the process of my "worst" move. It's taken a lot out of all of us, our trip to the states. We've thrown away about 20 pounds of childhood memorabilia and shedding a few tears in the process. Anyway, while sorting through my things, I found it. My old copy of Watch_Dogs, a game I picked up not a month ago. Well, this time I had the case, so I suppose it's different. Anyway, I popped open the case and found both discs inside, patiently waiting for me to rage at the TV one last time; I placed the cd into my XBox and tried to load the game one last time. Did it work? Of course not, but it did give me an idea. Hidden behind the cover art was a phone number, one to Ubisoft Support. So I called them up, hoping that with whatever glimmer of hope I still had, I'd be able to exchange my broken copy for a new one (a code at least).

 

Yeah, good luck with that. Ubisoft Support, although not the worst, couldn't care less. I'll admit, the person on the phone was nice, but he kept referring me to buying a new copy. (Apparently there was some sale on the original to make way for Watch_Dogs 2)

"I don't wanna buy a new copy! Just give me a code or something!"

 

That call was a waste of money. Anyway, fast forward to today, I managed to pick up a copy on Steam for 15 bucks on the "Complete Edition" (A friend picked it up for me; I'm cheap). So I spent the whole day downloading the gaping 17GBs at 500KB/s. How delightful. You've gotta thank hotel internet for their relentless dedication.

 

On to the juicy parts . . . GAMEPLAY! The GAMEPLAY IS STUNNING! When I move my mouse, it's like I'm a glitchy hacker. While watching the cutscenes, I can't tell if I'm lagging or that's the real-deal. 20 frames per second is like a life goal. Could you imagine what would happen if the real world ran at 20 frames per second? We'd all be buying GTX 1080s. That's what would happen.

 

There's really no point to this entry anymore. There's not much to say, so I'll let the pictures of my rad adventure pull it off.

Welp, that was my "adventure". It lasted a good half-hour, so it's not that bad. Like I said, I've got better entries (unlike this one) coming soon! So stick around for those. Hopefully I've have Internet to post 5k special.

It's the holidays! You know what that means? It means I've gotta come up with some kind of "Christmas Special" so I can get some kind of BOOST in popularity. But I digress, it's the holidays, a time to sit back, create some debt, worship the chimney-sweeping Coca-Cola dude, Santa Claus, and replay that "NINTENDO 64" meme I love so much.

 

So let's sit back, relax, and step down to earth with our first-ever:

 


REPUB'S 2016 HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR


A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF REPUB, KING OF REALLY BAD FANFICTION, EXTREMELY BELATED BLOG ENTRIES


AND FORGETTING WHAT DAY IT IS. SERIOUSLY, IS IT LIKE . . . SUNDAY OR SOMETHING? DOES THAT MEAN SCHOOL IN THE MORNING? DARN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday, December 19st, 2016


We had an early Christmas, nothing more than a few presents under the tree. Reason we did it early was because the movers were coming the next morning and we had to be prepared. Now, usually I'm the last person to do so, but I really think I had the upper hand in all this. For the last three days, I'd been throwing all my old toys and such from the last 8 or 9 years (a lot of tears were shed), so my soul was prepared for anything (about 5 huge garbage bags full of junk). Unfortunately, I'm still a procrastinator and still had about two bags to take care off; I didn't sleep that night (partly because of the early Christmas)

 


I will admit, I have a terrible gift of "The Careful Eye"; meaning, my holidays are always the most anti-climatic parts of the year. No matter how well you hide a gift, I; for some reason, always find it.

 

So there was no surprise in my holiday gift list. I received a new laptop (AMD Quad-Core 1.6Ghz HP Notebook PC w/ 8GB RAM), the MLP Twilight Sparkle Train Conducter set (really cool, btw), and the Twilight Sparkle Holiday Ornament (Hallmark. It looks like it's one of the newer designs for the 2017 movie). Not a bad loadout for this year, so I'll take what I can get (that laptop was a very good payoff).

 

I didn't sleep that night. No, not only because I was up all night downloading 3.2 GBs of the famed, "Blackjrxiii"'s work, but because I still had a lot to pack and throw away. Since then, I've been sleeping really late. I suppose you could call that the, "Last Sunrise I'll Ever See".

 


TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20TH, 2016


Movers in Japan are no joke. For one, they take their jobs very seriously and will starve to finish their duties (unless it's lunchtime, which they'll ditch anything for). We in Japan like to call them the, "Ninja Movers" because if you don't specify every little thing you do not want packed, they'll take it away. If you turn your back, they'll pack your stuff in such an aggressively careful way, whatever you left will be compact in a neat little box the next time you look.

 

I sat in the bathroom, the safest room of the whole house, and wasted away with erotic roleplay with some of the PonyCrush Community. (It got really saucy, so I'll leave it at that).

 

Afterward, the house was pretty much empty with the exception of a few pieces of furniture later to be sold to some random people online.

 


WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21ST, 2016


Lazy day #1. We did nothing but sit around; I did a bit of late schoolwork (wow, RePub does school? What is this?) but I didn't get very far. I did, however, get to download my entire Steam library along with many other programs I needed from my "Le Brick" Windows XP computer.

 

Y'know, I take back what I said about Windows 10. It's kinda cool once you remove:

 

-Pre-installed programs (Includes HotalAdvisor. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT FOR?)
-Cortana
-OneDrive
-Office 360 (If I have 2007 forever, why would I pay a subscription for something marginally better?)
-Microsoft Edge
-Custom Toolbars
-Bing
-Wallpapers made by Windows
-Xbox Everywhere
-Xbox Live
-Apps on the Start-Menu
-Apps in general
-Pretty much everything added in Windows 10.

 

Other than that ^, everything's pretty cool. Best console I've ever bought. (Did I tell you it has a Numpad?)

 


THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22ND, 2016


I played CS:GO all day and scammed my friend for 9 extra skins (Plus one I got via random drop). I think it's hit me . . . the Skin Insanity. I had a conversation with another friend of mine (wow, RePub has friends?!? What is THIS?!?) about Stage Definition for many of the Skin Insanity symptoms. Here's what we came up with:

 


Stage 1 - Want it, need it.
Stage 2 - Spending all your money in CS:GO
Stage 3 - Attempted Thievery
Stage 4 - Scam your friends and Family
Stage 5 - Investing every dying cent into that rare pair of Gloves (or knife)

 

Yeah, Stage 4 is hitting pretty hard, but I think it's been dying down. Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta shoot 600 more bots in training ('cause I suck real bad)

 

Oh, and I think this was the day I wrote about the MLP Gameloft game. Uh . . . yeah . . . something like that.

 


FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23RD, 2016


We donated a lot of extra crap during this day; but that night, I had the honor of viewing the Assassin's Creed Movie in theater (3D, but I recommend 2D because of a lot of action).

 


Without spoilers, it's not bad (which is a first for a video game movie). I think it needs a lot of work; there are a lot of scenes that'll cut from the middle of a conversation to look at some random plant, but that's all good when you look at it as a whole. It's got some trippy parkour (which is expected), but I think the underline message is to create a withstanding example for future video-game based movies. And with that goal in mind, I believe it succeeded. Let's hope FNAF doesn't screw it up.

 

(Oh, I saw Rogue One a week earlier; I'll write a review on that whenever I get the time)

 


SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24TH, 2016


Technically, this was Christmas Eve, but we didn't have anything to give so we went out for the day.

 

It was more of a family day, so it's not much to talk about. My mother was on her usual quest to find the "perfect photo", so that left me and my father out to linger. Earlier that day, however, we had to find our little bird, Kiwi, a new home. He didn't make many appearances in this blog, but he's in the thumbnail for the entry, "HOW 2 SNORT WASABI (Part 1)".

 


RIP Kiwi, gud burd.

 

 

 

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2016


(Wow, that title really trumps yesterday)

 


It's Christmas and I awoke to Windows 10 updates that've been collecting over the past week! Thank you, Microsoft for a present more forgetful than my grandmother's socks: Three hours of waiting!

 

Now, there's a tradition here in Japan. When that holiday where you see Americans dressing up in reds and hanging lights over their door comes around, you better call KFC for a reservation.

 

"Why?" You ask. Well, I'll tell you. When Christmas rolls around, every single Japanese person in this country runs to their nearest KFC (potentially a mile away) to collect their holiday chicken. It's true! They'll run across the island to pick up their holiday tradition of taking in the Coronal's moist chicken with the least amount of time between bites.

 

My mother decided to jump on the band wagon this year and pushed us all out the door (and across the island) to pick up the golden-fried legs of an Ancient Japanese tradition. When we arrived, we half expected a line to be waiting outside the feeble red and white building. Much to our surprise, no one was there except two petite Japanese women; they were no older than 20. My mother tried to go inside, but the two ladies told us they were closed for the holidays and instead offered us a tiny box of $10 chicken legs. From the corner of her eye, however, a large family, no smaller than six or seven persons, barged out from the KFC with huge, black drums of chicken.

 

My mother was furious and demanded to know why they were closed and what happened to all that chicken; I stared at the feeble box of second-rate food. The lady backed off, trying to explain that those customers had paid for a reservation one month in advance. So while we were stuck in the cold with our poor-man's turkey, everyone else was living it up with their enormous barrels of exclusive KFC.

 

We had to settle with the low-rate 10 dollar chicken, splitting a single box between the three of us.

We're almost at 5,000 Views, so I'll make my thank-you speech here for the holidays:

 

Thank you all for sticking with us throughout the year! It's been quite an adventure writing these, so I sincerely hope that my disparity has given all of you a few laughs! Since coming here, I certainly hope I've made a good impression on the many of you, even if few of my conversations were a bit aggressive (I've got an inbox full of take-down notices :P ). We're still working on big projects and I hope this entry can make up for all of the ones I missed. I remember writing my first entry as some sort of complaint/rant about BronyMate (my, how short those entries were back then) and somehow they evolved! Now we're at 5000 Views by strangers who I don't even know! I honestly didn't think people read my work (they probably don't; it's probably me just refreshing the page a hundred times :P).

 

My, how we've all grown.

 

Yes, I've run into a few dry patches from here to there, but life goes on and there's always new things to talk about. I know there's still a long way to go, but I hope this blog continues to grow and make its mark upon these forums; that's my only Christmas wish.

 

Thank you all, and I'll see you in the next post,

So for the half-person who waited for my livestream, it was cancelled (whoops :P ). Reason? Technical errors with the sound. (Not to mention two copyright strikes for a video that wasn't up for a minute)

 

Beside that, I've got another computer-related blog (it's the last one, probably) on the way cause . . . I GOT A NEW LAPTOP! Finally after a good 8 or so months, I finally have a computer to call my own and respect (I'm looking at you, chromebook). I'll get into the specs later.

 

What do I do with that computer? Counter-Strike, that's it. Skin Insanity Stage 4, gotta get more skins. On the contrary, I grew sick of the Steam Guard thing so I decided to download BlueStacks, a Windows Application enabling Android Emulation. I downloaded Steam and finally finished that silly security setup (it's really dumb; who needs it?). On my way out, however, I remembered an Equestria Daily entry about a My Little Pony Gameloft game. So, instinctively, I checked it out and downloaded it.

 

First thing you'll probably see (if you ever decide to check out Bluestacks) is that everything lags pretty bad. Even on a brand new laptop, it still lags (no surprise there). So I got to enjoy the "alternate intro" to the game. (It's Episode 1's intro, but with Twilight in it for some reason. [Also: Celestia sounds weird]) It chopped every half second, so that was enjoyable. Loading takes forever on first boot. My first boot I was greeted to a lovely loading screen that took a good 4 minutes to complete. After that, I experienced that splendid Hasbro Logo accompanied by a second loading screen for updates that took another 12 minutes. Finally, when all was good and done, I got to experience the entirety of the game. Whatever that is.

 

The tutorial is pretty simple, give Bon Bon a home and play with Twilight a bit. I kinda wish they had an Amie game to play with the ponies you buy . . . but there's not time for that; we need to get straight to business! (And I thought the Monopoly game was bad). My Little Pony: The Game is an in-game purchase hell. Everything you do is for more money. Play a game with balls? BOOM! Gimme your 200 bits. Want Rainbow Dash to bake cupcakes? BOOM! 2000 for Dash, another 800 for the bakery! Want that super special pony that's limited only to the weekend? BOOM! GOTTA BUY A 50 DOLLAR BONUS PACKAGE INCLUDING NOTHING BUT TREES!!! At least I get the experience of Hasbro's CEO. All I'm missing is a stamp titled, "DMCA".

 

There's really not much to say about this game. Buy the souls of your favorite characters, then buy some other characters that've never been in the show and force them to work in your mediocre bathhouses. It's pretty much the game of "Life: Brony Edition".

Edit: The animations are still kinda cute, though. A little awkward at times (recycled animations for every single pony), but still very, very cute.

"I'M GOING TO KYS MYSELF"

 


During the past week, I had the honor of washing the car for money. Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal, but that day was different. Between the writing competition and my daily routine of snorting four "shaft-long" Wonka Pixy-Stixs, I wasn't going to let this opportunity down. What was I going to buy? A Steam Card, of course! Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was on sale for 33% off! That's a whole 5 dollars off! By golly! I wasn't going to miss that for the world! So I bought CS:GO for the first time and waited seven whole days to play it. Why? Because I still don't have a computer and I was stuck waiting in line for the household "desktop" (if you could even call it one) filled with 266 GBs (not joking) of family memobilia and the occasional Spider Solitaire save file to become available.

 

So after four years, I finally experienced CS:GO. What do I think of it? Here, I'll let Russian Kids ".." and "-x-" sum it up for me.

 


"Cyka bylat"

 


To be honest, I didn't think the rumors would be true; but boy was I wrong. Every single lobby you enter is filled to the brim with foul mouthed Russian kids hogging and slurping up the microphones. No, I didn't get screamed at directly, but I was called a "cyka", so I'll consider that a promotion toward "edgy"

 

Oh, and yes, there are cheaters. A LOT OF THEM. My very first match (in Dust 2. Was there any doubt?) had one hacker jumping around the map with a Desert Eagle headshotting everyone on his radar. My first reaction was, "Oh wow! This must be some elite player!"

 


*goes back to wallbanging everything in sight*

 


Now, as I'm writing this, I've played about 6 hours of CS:GO. In that time, I could've washed my mom's car twenty times over. Unfortunately, I was stuck playing the same two maps over and over again (Dust 2 and Mirage). Seriously, what is it with desert maps? Is it the character models? Why? WHY? WHY?

 

Eventually, I discovered the other modes. They're pretty cool and I'm not as bad with them as the "'Casual' Russian Invasion" mode. Though, I'm pretty sure that's only because I remember playing on "Baggage" back in 2013 for Minecraft 1.5 (Shotbow Network, I believe).

 

So in short, CS:GO is pretty addictive. I've neglected my chores and resorted to playing video games all day. Stage One of "Skin Insanity" complete. If you like being screamed at by russian kids, this game is for you.

 

Oh, and I want those gloves. They look cool.

Aaand . . . we're back. This is probably going to be one of the most controversal seasons due to all the political debacle we've had in the month of November. So without further ado, let's get on the road!

 

"Just what has RealityPublishing been doing all this month? He hasn't written anything since October!"

 

For those who don't know, the National Pony Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), an event that challenges all fanfiction authors to writing fifty-thousand words by the end of the month (It's a lot, trust me). How did we get invited? We didn't; we walked in. I believe I mentioned it before, but instead of doing all the other work (like I was supposed to), I was busy pouring my blood, sweat, and tears into one of my worst works (Don't worry, we'll edit it). Unfortunately, after all the hard work (48k in), I realized I wrote the story in the wrong person. So I'll be clicking my keys away for the next two months trying to fix everything I screwed up on.

 

No, this isn't like my traditional blog post, it's more of a status update; but there will be many, many more blogs in the future. I'm trying to return to the original "daily blog" schedule, but it's a bit harder with the move going on (yes, we're moving shop to Texas and we'll be cutting our internet on December 30th).

 

Considering this is another one of my "weakest" blog entries, I figured I'd give a few sneak-peaks at what is to come for the rest of RealityPublishing's Tales of Unfortunate Tails: Season 3. We've got some big ones planned. . . such as:

 

-THE KEIJO MARKETPLACE
-WINDOWS XP GONE WRONG
-LOWERING YOUR TEACHER'S EXPECTATIONS (PART 1 OF 1)
-AMERICA GOES APE-CRAZY
and
-NICK CAGE READS EROTIC FANFICTION WITH A HIGH-PITCHED VOICE (wow, I really should have lowered my octave)

 

(Titles subject to change)

 

Thank you all for the support! It's been a crazy month and we're working to make some great content! Throughout this month, we'll be creating several new projects and fanfictions! We're still looking to invest in some drawing tablets and we've recently updated our engine for our (still in development, but almost done) first game, "Fallout: Equestrian Revolution", and will be expected to release sometime summer 2017 (perhaps August; it depends). We're still looking for artists, so if you'd like to see this game become a reality (get it?), then please message me (we'll probably be working with SFM for the first game).

 

Again, thank you all for the support! See you on the flip side!

In the words of Sanic the Hegehog,

"xxx_sm0k1ng_1s_4_dumb0t$_xxx"

 


So I went to visit Japan last year, right? You know how it goes, family trip, you get dragged into going, already been there a thousand times . . . couldn't get any more complicated than that, right? Well, I wouldn't exactly say it was "complicated", but it was certainly something . . . different.

 

Firstly, I'll start with the present. I'm doing the "National Pony Writing Month" with my entry being, "My Little Pony: Equestrian Redemption", a sequel to an unfinished series that I started back in 2015. I deleted everything because I thought it was terrible (it was), but it's coming back better than ever. So be on the look out for that. Also, because fifty-thousand words is a bit of a challenge, I might not be writing here for the rest of the month. Sorry 'bout that. I guess I'll be taking my hiatus early. :please:
No worries because for those of you who joined our Discord Server:

 


 


You'll be able to hear from me all month. The purpose of the server (which I don't believe I explained too well in the previous entry) is to be a more public, more reliable way to show off the source material for many of these blogs, as well as giving more people a chance to offer suggestions and input for past and future entries. Our server offers users to "listen in" (All audio, no voice) on the conversations my friends and I have during the making of these entries. If you wish to join in on the conversation (and you are "deemed fit") you can ask us and we'd be more than glad to grant "special access" and give input during the calls. It's a good step forward and if more people join in, this blog could live on for a much longer time. There will be another link at the bottom of the post for those willing to join. (Discord is a pretty cool program. I'd recommend it even for non-gamers who use Skype. Discord is much, much more organized than what the name advertises.)

 

And now for the past, which is the focus of this story. I believe I mentioned visiting Japan? So we'll start from there.

 

Japan is a nice place to visit and has a lot of interesting exhibits to cast your eyes on. My favorite aesthetically? The Sankeien Garden. It's nice to walk around; and although I have a vague memory of it, I do remember we arrived at the last 30 minutes until close. (Fun Fact: I believe those gardens were featured in Sword Art Online [don't ask me what episode]. If you visit the site, you can actually see a lot of the same bridges and ponds. Again, I don't know the exact garden name, but I do know it was that one.) My favorite humorously? The Poop Museum. The name says it all. Look it up, I dare 'ya :smug:

 

So what made this trip special? Why is this trip different from all other trips? Not to mention, why am I writing a blog about it? Well, I was going to tell you eventually. . .

 

On the last night of my five-day vacation, I stayed at a "Capsule Hotel". If you don't know what those are, I'm not surprised. Capsule Hotels are, on the face, neat little one-person rooms all stacked up on top of each other. Each hallway is filled with at least forty of these things, but it's still an interesting concept. Of course, that's on the face, but what's behind the mask? In the words of Michael Rosen:

 


"That's an interesting story, and I'll tell you."

 


First thing that should give you a big red symbol is the fact that they divide the males from females between differing floors; but you should've probably expected such a thing, so I'll keep going. Secondly, if you look very closely behind the counter, you can see the shower room. Filled to the brim with nude men; how subtle. Now, I know that we in the west see something like that as taboo, but here in east? Nah, it's fine. Let the kid jump around in the back of the car! we're not driving nearly as fast as we should!

 

Luckily, I didn't take a shower that night; though, by the end of the night, I probably should've. Capsule Hotels are a breeding place for claustrophobia. Despite being armed to the teeth with alarm clocks and televisions (funny story), those capsules are very, very small; (It's about three feet in height.) and again, you're stuck in a room with about fifty other people who don't know where they're going (there was a bar under the hotel).

 

The Televisions! What can I say? No headphone jack? 24 hours a day scripted p-rnography?

 

n o t b a d. :awuh: (Guilty as charged)

 

So other than the suggestive stimulation playing on the television, everything else was pretty normal. Each individual compartment came with their own blanket and pillow, alarm clock (I said that), and radio (still no headphone jack :blush: ). Only other thing that happened was that at about four in the morning some random Japanese man, shirtless and possibly wasted, climbed into my capsule.

 


I had to kick him out.

VIEWERS BEWARE, YOU BE IN FOR A SCARE

 


Wow, that added no depth to the entry whatsoever. Huh.

 

So where in the world was RealityPublishing? It's been a week an literally no one missed him! Not even the PonyCrush people! Well? I've been sitting around playing Fallout: Tactics, writing more fanfictions, force feeding Boku No Pico to my note-taking accomplice, and waiting in line for Blackjrxiii's newest hit (It features Applejack. I'll dig anything with my fiance' in it). Pretty busy week if you ask me! I'll try to post more frequently now that Season 6 is done and over (eck. That episode deserves an entry of its own).

 

In fact, I managed to finish an entire four-page fiction in about two days! I polished it up (as best as I could) and shipped it off the next morning. I had to draw sketches, create covers, and everything! Sure, it took a lot of work, but I think it was all well-worth it. So what was the fiction? It was roughly a 28-hundred word short story featuring Pinkie Pie and metaphorical reflection. I personally thought it was one of my better works, but what do I get in return? About 80 views, 1 Like, and 2 people climbing on my back about errors that were non-existent. Now, to be fair, I don't mind criticism; in fact, I think it's one of the best things a writer could ask for. You can improve on it and strive to be a better writer, (which is what I did). The problem is that out of two people pushing the backlash, I was only able to extract a single piece of information that was actually useful. Strange, huh?

 

Though, I'll have to give credit to the first person who commented, because he got me thinking. The statement he described was:
"I'm not sure if this is a sad Pinkie, or an unhinged Pinkamena"
The story I wrote was a metaphor and had neither of the two. All the characters of the story were just placeholders to better fit the message that I, the author, was trying to tell; it was all for the better visualization. Unfortunately, it seemed as though people didn't understand that. Sure, it could be that I wrote the fiction in one day and they just didn't get it, but I believe there's another alternative. . .

 

Fans who read these sort of works come in with a pre-existing headcannon that they expect the fiction will perfectly align with. When it doesn't, they don't like it. It's as if fan directly compares the show or their beliefs with the fiction presented; it just doesn't work. Yes, we know that Pinkie Pie is a fun-loving pony, and even the simplest of stories can reflect that, but when the character is automatically classified to what the reader wants it, the moral or intention of the author is destroyed. Writing is a tool to speak the words of talented writers, not fit the demands of a reader. Perhaps it's just me being blind to the definition of "fan fiction" and maybe I should go on to write more, "Twilight rides a bus and Pinkie Pie was there" fictions which seem to be getting a lot of attention. This brings me to my second point.

 

Scenario Fictions, as I call them, are what give fan fiction a bad name. They feature next to no originality and they still are able to breech the 1,000 view mark or receive more attention than they certainly should have. It's like the LeafyisHere or Pyrocynical of fan fictions. No effort, more views, more attention, more fame. You want to make a Scenario Fiction? Let's go through the steps.

 

Step 1: Watch the latest episodes (hard work, I know)
Step 2: Take whatever was good about the episode or whatever you thought could've been different, and put your own spin on it. Such as. . .

Step 3 is watch the views roll in. Anyone can be horse famous now!

 

No, I have not read any of the fictions above, but I don't think I really want to. You could say they get the views because people want a laugh or two, but for something like this to attract over a thousand fans? Seriously? And that leaves me to my last objective.

 


ROMANCE FICTIONS

 


Y'know, I wouldn't have so much a problem with these if it weren't for the fact they are more populated than the entire population of Eastern Asia. Let's be honest, about 95% of us would have an emotional relationship with one of the mares if given the chance. Problem is, people can't keep that to themselves. Oh, no. They decide to write more fictions than an immortal Mark Twain could. I honestly don't know what's so "special" about these quote-on-quote "ROMANCE" fictions. And no, I don't hate the writers or their work. I just hate the fact that people would rather subject their eyes to something as morbidly stupid as a Twixie Fanfic than an original IP made by some junky surrounded by CRT TVs.

 

That pretty much raps that up. My friends and I watched the original MLP movie, so I'll be writing about that sometime in the near future.

 

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy!
But here's my outro,
So call me salty!

By golly, it's another story about computers! Gee whiz, I feel like I did an intro like this before. . . huh. Ah well, this story is a bit more entertaining and jammed packed with suspense! (Nah, probably not.) Oh, and if you didn't understand the second half of that title, here's a translation, "In Real Life Oh My Gosh Wut The Fack Laugh Out Loud". Damn, am I the only one who remembers what "Lol" stands for? Now I really feel old. . .

 

Anyway, on to the REAL intro!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inspired by historical events and characters.

 


This work of fiction was designed, developed, and produced by a multicultural team of various religious faiths and beliefs.

Quoting a famous intro / speech? Very original, RePub.

 

Well, what do you expect? We're running out of ideas and. . . you know what?

 


vlE2gy0.png

 


And that, my friends, is what we call, "a bigger budget". Yeah, we're turning out like El Smosh. Pretty soon these blog entries are going to be translated into Dovahkiin (Elder Scrolls: Skyrim).

 

But I digress, you're here for the story, not the random hilarity. (Unless you are here for that in which I really need to rework my formula.)

 

Well, as many of you probably didn't know. Over the weekend, Bethesda had a big sale for their Fallout series, and being the classical fanatic I am, I decided to buy the entire Classic Collection for a grand total of 10 bucks. Not bad, eh?

 

If you can recall, and I'm pretty sure I've mentioned at least twice a post, I still don't have a computer. What's taking so long? I'm broke, mkay? The only computer I have, if you can recall (again), is the "Brick" which does, in fact, have the capabilities of running Fallout Classic. Now I just had to acquire internet connection. . .

 

Now, the time was about three in the morning, very convenient when you had to download a good 2 GBs of Fallout goodness (1, 2, and Tactics). Please, that wasn't going to get in my way! So what did I do? I geared up and did a montage by grabbing a hat, hoodie, long black pants, socks, a face mask, and a backpack stuffed with, the Brick, a LAN Cable, charger, and my cell-phone. Why I did it is still beyond me, but in the end, I was glad I packed dark.

 

Y'know, I've been playing a lot of video games lately. I'm not ashamed of it, but after a good. . . 200 hours? It really gets in your head. Oh, and I mastered the "crouch-walking". So, I think that'll explain a bit more. Anyway, here I am, dressed head to toe in the silliest get-up while crouch-walking throughout my house as if I'm avoiding alarms. Eventually, after 20 minutes, I crawled myself up a different flight of stairs to where our internet router is kept and I plugged in my laptop.

 

The booting alone took long enough, not to mention Steam's part in all of it. The entire process took forever and I was growing restless. Back and forth, I paced around the room, sweating and regretting my entire life, when all of a sudden, I start hearing footsteps. Now, I thought it was just my computer fan for a while, so I ignored it and continued my contemplation. At least, until I heard the wooden stairs grumble under the feet of my trampling mother. At that point, I was wrapping myself around the Brick, begging for it to complete the download; me mum was right outside the door, peeking in. I didn't move a muscle and, thankfully, she didn't dare turn on the lights. After what seemed like hours, she left the room and returned to her bedroom, leaving me in a heaping pile of sweaty rags.

 

Fallout Classic is a great game! Would recommend.

Here it is! After 2 days of waiting, wishing, wanting, dying, and becoming resurrect, I've finally experienced just about all of PonyCrush, minus the. . . crush part. Let me just start by saying, PonyCrush is a million times better than BronyMate. Yes, PonyCrush is a newer site, but at least you don't have to pay for everything (something I learned when walking into the Br0nyM8 Q&A). Seriously, a year long subscription is about 250 bucks! Who's gonna pay for that?

 

"Ahem,"
*bows with respect*
"I believe it is time for our feature presentation"

 

So will Reality Pubics finally reach his destiny? To find a lover who will understand his idiotic lifestyle, messy room, and explore badlands of RP's accomplishments? Will he truly find his soul mate under the consistent hail fire of FiMFiction Critics? And finally, will RePub finally find someone to call his own? For life and forever? For the love of mares? Will Applejack, his beloved fiance', get upset? (No, she won't. I'm sorry bby, plz forgive meh. I had to do it for the blog! I'll do your side of the chores! I'll. . . massage your back! I'll. . . stay up late and help you with the animals! I'll. . .)

 

With the theater aside, PonyCrush was quite the experience. No, there wasn't much to do there (at least for a new user), but there was definitely a feeling of unity between the small division of bronies who have bound together in order to get laid. Again, it's a small site that opened only a year ago, which was something that surprised even me.

 

But many of you aren't here to listen to me "review" the site. After all, the purpose of this blog is to retell experiences and life stories that've happened to me in the past. So let's get started.

 


Dawn of the First Day: 72 Hours Remain


Last Sunday, October 23rd, I was bored and wanted to leave the weekend with a bang. I hadn't really done anything, so I had a good reason to wish. Doing so, I called up my friend (the same from the "G3 Drinking Game," read it if you haven't [it's pretty good]) and asked what he was up to. Small talk occurred for a good 12 minutes before we both suffered in the silence of awkward timing. Eventually, I got the idea of going back to my older blog entries (when it was all about computers and somewhat better titles) and had a revelation about my first post. It was about "BronyMate," a site I hadn't forgotten. So for the memories' sake, I visited the site in wonder if they were still up. Seeing they were, I took a dip into the Q&A, finding the "subscription policy". I mentioned it to my friend and he linked me to TootsieRoll's video on Brony dating sites. Near the end of the video, I learned of an alternate site dubbed, "PonyCrush", which I had never heard of. I decided to check it out and, because of my desire to write a new blog entry, I jumped into the action.

 


Setting up an account was easy and definitely less demanding than BronyMate (asking for zip codes and crap. Who does that?). However, about halfway through setting up my profile, I discovered the 16 Personalities test; which, I'm sure most of you have heard of. If not, it's a test that determines what your personality type is, or in my case, how big a jerk I am. :P

 

The test went smoothly and took about 20 minutes to do (considering I was slouching around the entire time), which wasn't bad. Turns out I'm a "Debater", which translates to "Douche bag who over analyzes things and gets into arguments over silly situations". What a big surprise.

 

My friend actually took notes of the first day. If you'd like a bit of random, funny crap, be sure to check it out in the attachments (don't worry, it's txt). Oh, profanity warning, though. Just to. . . uh. . . warn you.

 

So when my account was all good and done, it looked a little something like this:

Because Pictures that are upside down, are automatically funny.

 


Anyway, the rest of the night was a bit bland. We just lurked around the site and sang shanties all night. What a world, ya better leave her, Johnny.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dawn of the Second Day: 36 Hours Remain

 


The Second day was much like the first, sitting around and waiting. I did, however, meet someone (not a lover) who refused to talk (he probably didn't get my message) to me after my third PM. How convenient. I think the only thing different about Day 2 was that I changed my profile pic and added a bit more info. It's a picture of my OC and can be found on the MLPForum OC Archives with the name, "Rebus Noteworthy". He's the most unoriginal piece of work I've ever crafted.

 

Sadly, this day, like the rest, don't have notes. Such a shame. I guess that leaves me to my final day. . .

 


Night of the Final Day: 6 Hours Remain

 


Well, not really 6 hours, but you get the parody. I think the 3rd day is where I had the most activity. Mainly because I lurked around a bit more, counted how many "mares" there are to "stallions" (which, by the way, is only 17 pages out of 72), and made a good comment! (Adding one more pony to my "friends list") Along with a bit of commenting, I also had the honor of advising the site to advertise a bit more. How exciting! (not. Though I did get some agreement)

 


Moon Fell. Let's all go home and press reset.

 


All in all, I find PonyCrush to be a nice little community of sad sobbing singles whose only desire is to gang-"nuzzle" the 2 females who ever come online. Though, I still feel the site has a bit more potential. No, I'm not sponsored by PonyCrush or anything. Heck, they still don't know I exist. But I still think if you want that extra boost of togetherness and crippling loneliness (because one dose is never enough), feel free to check it out in the link below. (Oh, you can find my lack-luster profile down there, too. It's quite a trip.)

 

I'll probably keep my PonyCrush account live (and potentially active), so if you're in the area, give me a holler and let me know the Forums sent ya!

-RealityPublishing (with yet again, another bad blog entry)

RealityPublishing
blog-0667683001477047408.png

Yes, I know I haven't been writing as much as I used to, but I figured I'd let my last entry sink in for a bit. So what have I been doing? Sitting around, playing Xbox, and screaming my lungs out, but I'll get to that one in a few. Considering I've missed a few days, I'll try to knock out a couple of reviews in one entry. How does that sound?

 

First thing on the menu? Assassin's Creed: Rogue. Why? Well, because it's. . . new in my library? I don't know, just bear with me to the end.

 

Assassin's Creed: Rogue is a story where you take control of Shay Cormack, a former assassin turned Templar in attempts to "seek justice" or something like that. He also really sucks at parkour and whistling. Seriously, I whistled at a guard about four feet away from me and he still didn't catch on. What a dingas. Whistle in AC:Black Flag and you'll be attracting the entire Spanish Navy. . . I thought the game was good, but a bit easy for my taste. Then again, of course it'd be easy when you have 100,000 dollars at 59% completion. . .

Yeah, I'm done talking about that. Besides, I haven't even finished the game.

 


There's about three reasons I think you're here and you probably don't care about my bad review of AC:Rogue. So these are my reasons. . .
Reason 1: You saw the title and are somewhat curious (Possibly)
Reason 2: You actually follow my work (Unlikely)
Reason 3: You want to hear about my reaction to the NX Reveal.

 

Well, I'll tell you. I thought the NX reveal was amazing and, while not what I was expecting (It never is), it was an excellent way to wrap up 2016, an otherwise disappointing year. I know there's going to be a lot of people who are going to disagree with everything I say and that I should just go back to drowning myself in the 2 images of MLP G3 R34. (yes, there's only two. I checked, and one of them is just straight up furry)

 

But anyway, I approve of the NSwitch. Do I like the name? No. Do I like the secrecy around it? No, but I do like the concept and the promise. (This is where 90% of the hate is coming from) I believe Nintendo is making the right move toward AAA titles and hardware. From what we've heard, Nintendo just walked up to NVidia, asked if they could make a custom chip and assigned 50 guys to the job.

 

I have to admit, my first reaction to the NX reveal was,
"N-Nintendo. . . Switch?"
Yeah, I still hate the name. But my second reaction was something like,
" :adorkable::o :-o :love::blink::pinkie: "
But even that isn't accurate. There isn't enough faces on this Forum to come up with a proper representation. Here, I'll try to type it out for you.

 

*sees Zelda*
(Insert Micheal Rosen Here)"Nice"
*sees controller break into two pieces*
"Huh?"
*Sees the entire console pop off the dock*
"OOOHOOOHOHOHOHOOHOHOHOOOHOHO OHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOH" (Repeat for 3 minutes and make as many spasms as you can until neighbors have awoken)

 

But nonetheless, I spent the entire night hyperventilating, dreaming about the NX (which I refuse to call by any other name), and passing out on the bedroom floor (which I did).

 

Well played, Nintendo. Well played.

Oh, and during the NX carnage, I tweeted this to Ubisoft, who insisted I check out their. . . "flight simulator"

LIFE. OUR FINAL DECISION. THESE ARE THE VOYAGES OF THE PONY, NOTEWORTHY. HIS ONE-NIGHT MISSION: TO EXPLORE STRANGE NEW GENS, TO SEEK OUT NEW MARES AND NEW CIVILIZATIONS,

TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO COLT HAS GONE BEFORE


RealityPublishing Copyright 2016. Don't sue me

 


OH YES! I've been waiting to talk about this one! OOOOOH BOY! The fun I had.

 

Following my last entry, I mentioned that I checked out a MLP G3 DVD from the library and that I'd be watching it that night. I kept my word, and I regretted it.

 

So before I really dig in, let me give it a fair rating:

6/10 - RePub, "The menu spooked me"

 

As my mother always says, make sure you say something positive! Hmm. . . Pinkie Pie was there? Oh, and Rainbow, but I'll get to her later. Yeah, the positive ends there. The episode I watched was dubbed, "The Princess Promenade", and featured two other episodes to accompany it's trough of manure.

 

So as soon as I got home, sat around, and drew a bit, I popped in the disk and called up my friend. It took a while, but we eventually agreed to watch the full, 50-minute feature film.

 

The episode is just littered with bad writing. Everypony has no other emotion but happy, even Pinkie Pie, ponies don't intervene, and even the musical numbers sucked. The story starts off with about three breezies flying into "Ponyville" to aid in some kind of flower festival. The main breezy, Zipzeey (who is voiced by Andrea Libman, so you can imagine how many times I thought that was Pinkie), is allergic to flowers for some reason, but that's not really a problem. The "real" focus of the story is set on Hysteria (Her name is Wysteria, but I swear they kept saying, "Hysteria"), G3's very own, Twilight Sparkle. Hysteria, accompanied by Pinkie Pie, is digging around in the "royal"(?) flower guardian (after a song) when they find a weed. The two try to pull it out, but they end up falling in a deep hole. Zipzeey, who apparently has a close relation with Hysteria, follows them. The three find themselves in a dark tunnel that leads them toward a big pile of dino dung. (I'm not kidding on that one.) On top of the dung, however, was a flower that interested Hysteria, causing her to try and pick it up. Dino Dung awakens, reveals its name is Spike (the dragon) and he appoints Hysteria a princess for picking up a flower or something.

 

This is where the movie takes a turn for the worse. Everything before this point, I could handle. In fact, the notorious intro song didn't even play at the beginning, so it was giving me a good impression. Until the word, "Princess" was thrown in there.

 

I swear, to this day, I wish I had taken shots for every time someone said, "Princess", but I'll get to the shots later. Spike, for some reason, has access to a big castle in the middle of Ponyville. It's not introduced or even explained why the castle is there, but I had to run with it. Spike explains that the flower gives whoever picks it the power of a princess and is the rightful ruler of however big Ponyville is. Spike then describes that his "role" was to teach the new princess how to be one, and this point, you should already figure out what the rest of the story is about. Hysteria is taught how to be a princess, but it's too stern and she can't see her friends. . . blah blah blah. . . musical number. . . no freedom. . . destroys the Death Star. . . gives up princesshood.

 

Now, all that is fine and dandy, it's nothing I haven't seen before, but what makes these stories unique (despite having the same plot) is the resolution. Let's see how they solve this problem. . .

 

Princess Hysteria, in a drunken, depressing rage, messes around with Minty / Pinkie's Float (Which, by the way, I would totally ship.) and comes up with an A M A Z I N G resolution. I swear, this blows G4 out of the water. In fact, I think the rest of the world should try this.

 

Hysteria solves her princess problem, BY MAKING EVERY PONY PRINCESS

 

Yeah, and they sang a song about it.

 

I think the only funny thing about that whole thing is that as soon as they started dancing and such, you could automatically see that Spike was the King. He dressed up and even went as far as making the ponies bow to him. Not joking, see it for yourself. (You can find the episode on XXnightmaremoonXX.de under the extras tab)

 

The whole thing is just littered with bad writing (as I said before). Not a single pony makes an advance toward Spike or pressures Hysteria about her princess problem. All the ponies in the town drop everything they're doing and sing a song about how there's, "A Princess in Town", which was just terrible. Every character has a stereotype and they follow it to the tee. This is where the drinking sets in. Firstly, I'm not old enough to drink, but that's fine. Water is more deadly. Rainbow Dash, who dresses so nice, has a bad habit. Every single line she has, ends with, or has multiple of, the word, "DARLING". As soon as I heard it twice, I grabbed a half-gallon of water and told my friend that every time Rainbow said, "Darling", I'd take a full swig. 40 Minutes and 36 swigs later, my hand is shaking, I've got a burning hatred for Rainbow Dash, and I'm screaming every time she appears on screen. My head is in the clouds, I can barely move, my bottle is just about empty, and I've got fifteen minutes left. At that point, my friend looked up "hyponatremia" and was begging me to stop, but I sucked it up and kept pushing 'till it was over. By the end of the night, I had water all over my shirt, I forgot how to swallow and I lugged my water-hopping bod into bed.

 

And that was my G3 experience. A simply delightful encounter with Rainbow Death and Hysteria. Though, I must add, they kept making references to Pinocchio which made me chuckle. Good job, G3, you got me to chuckle.

THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE. I have now officially invested myself into the vast world of Equestria and all they hold. Yeah, probably. Anyway, the day has finally come to celebrate my very first anniversary of belonging to this wonderful fandom. It's been quite a journey with a few ups and downs, but nothing too noteworthy (yeah right. Read my blog ;) )

 

But anyway, for those very, very few avid readers who actually spend their time to read my blog would know that it's my anniversary today. Exactly one year today, I snuck out of my home and (potentially) risked my life in order to buy an Applejack Plush. (Happiness with a price, I suppose) Ever since, I've been slowly gathering toys, watching the show, and wishing upon the BronyCon star in hopes that next year will be my arrival.

 

Since my first few days, I've written over 300 pages of fanfiction dedicated to the show, bought over 200 dollars of merchandise, and watched approximately four weeks of MLP and fan-content. Has it been quite a ride? You bet. Is it far from done? You betcha'. What will make this feature special? As I always do, I'll tell you a story. A story of how I came to be who I am now.

 

About a year and a week before today, I was a FNAFer. Cringe all you want, but that was who I was, and who I thought I was going to be for the next three years. I'd heard about the movie and thought my registration would live on until then. Unfortunately, it didn't. On August 24th, 2015, I and everyone else who had bought FNaF4, received a messaged from the developer, Scott Cawthon. To skip the boring details (I'll link it on the bottom), the message stated that the theorists, who I was, weren't doing a good enough job. He said that for some reason, we were all too slow and he was disappointed. After that, I was just stunned. Confused and unsure what to do, I left the fandom. I never looked at he or his games the same way again. For someone who's been met with failure in the past, he of all people should've known not to insult the fanbase. Now looking back, I know I probably took it a little harshly, but I didn't really care. It was OVER.

 

I was depressed for a good month. I didn't have anything to think about, so I just resorted to contemplating alternative life-choices and surfing Youtube. Finally, it's four weeks before October, and I was starting to think about my birthday. I knew this was going to be my worst birthday yet; everything was terrible.

 

While surfing Youtube, I managed to find a video titled, "Top Ten My Little Pony Facts" made by, who is now called, "Lemino". It was an old video and I knew very, very little about MLP. I only knew about G3 from when I was but a toddler. I watched it and after a while, my youtube suggestions started going crazy with MLP suggestions. I didn't watch them all, but I did make a choice. Being very interested in the mental developments of the Mind and how certain material can change the way a person thinks, I gave myself a promise (which I've broken). The promise was that I'd watch the series until I came across Derpy (or The Last Roundup episode). So, I combed Youtube and managed to find a full Season 1 back-to-back episode viewing. I was thrilled.

 

I watched the entire season in a good two days; I found it shockingly good. After finishing The Last Roundup, I paused my player and looked around the room, thinking to myself if I really wanted to cross this bridge. I figured it'd be for research; thus, I continued until I ran short of episodes (my season compilation was missing everything after "Over A Barrel").

 

I grew frantic and finally found a site where I could download them all in a low 480p for quick transfer.

 

After a good two weeks, I finished Season Three and grew tempted to buy merch. I've seen people around here calling it, "The Brony Craze", or "The Brony-itis". Whatever it was, I caught it really fast; I was unsure of what I wanted to do. It was a threshold that I knew was a one-way road. If I did indeed buy something, there would be no going back from where I was. At that same time I discovered the charm in Applejack; I dubbed her my favorite pony and was excited to see there was a plushie of her at one of the local shops.

 

That's pretty much it. I joined the fandom out of a name of science and never left. I guess I got caught in the hype and didn't care to leave. I ended up buying that Applejack and finished watching the series. After that, I personally declared myself a brony. I told my parents a month later, both of which accepted it. I began writing my own additions to the series, and not long after, I joined a steam group and changed my profile pic to an Applejack. It took a lot to get out, but I think it was the right choice. If people judge, let them be; let them hate, but words will always be stronger than actions.

 

So, now that I've told my story, how will I celebrate this epic achievement? Well, today I stopped by the library and noticed a copy of G3 MLP sitting on the shelves of the movie section. Let's just say I've got one helluva good night ahead of me. Oh, don't worry. You'll hear all about it on Tuesday (potentially Monday for time-zones)

 

Well, that's all folks! I'll see you on the flip side! Links and an extra photo are down below.

By GOLLY! It's another entry about computers, huh? Wow, I never realized my life consisted of so many bad computer stories. Hmf. Anyway, this is probably the most serious issue I've ever had before, so stay tuned, will ya?

 

About a month ago, just after my copy of Watch_Dogs had become corrupted and after I tried to grease to disk, I realized that it was a lost cause. Yes, the car wax did work, but not entirely. All in all, it let me play about 30 minutes before the entire system shut down, and about 49% of installation on Xbox Hard Drive. Nonetheless, I managed to torrent a copy of Disk 2 (I've got all rights, don't I? I mean, I bought the game) and it required me to put it on a USB drive, or rather, stick. Now, I'm not the kind of person who has twenty USB drives floating about my room; I like to keep everything on one 200GB External Hard Drive.

 

So what do you do when you've run into a problem? You ask the next person above you, in my case, that'd be my father. Simple as that, I ran downstairs and asked for a USB about or greater than 8GBs of space. He said he'd look. About four days later, he comes back with an old USB drive that had approx. 30GBs on it; I was grateful and didn't dare hesitate. I wanted to play W_Ds as soon as possible.

 

I don't remember if I've ever said this before, but I have four computers. Three of them are Laptops, which one of my laptops died (rest in peace), and one of them is a large Dell Dimension from the year 2002. My main laptop has now become what I call, "Le' Brick" or "The Craptop" because it's date goes back to around the same time as my Dell. My third laptop is a Chromebook, but as I said before, I hate that thing.

 

So I plug my USB into the Craptop and find it's got about twenty gigs of movies, which wasn't a problem. Nothing was, until I tried to unplug it. Y'see, for all the new kids on the block (I know there are a few), Windows XP required you to "Safely Remove Hardware" before unplugging it. You can still do it today, (Especially with Macs), but it's not necessary and hardly ever called for. My issue was that my Craptop could no longer remove hardware. Of course, I grew angry and just ripped it out anyway. Shame though, I lost one of my Blog Covers. . .

 

This is when things started to escalate. That night, I plugged in my External, the grande' 200GB "Declassified" Government Property Mofo (with Sticker!), and I noticed the icon for the device was a standard folder icon rather than it's "storage bus" logo. Strange, huh? Well, I then came up with another stupid idea. In the middle of the night, I took my external downstairs and plugged it into the FAMILY COMPUTER to see what was going on.

 

If you hadn't caught on to what happened, Autorun.Inf is a trojan that acts as a contagious virus like the flu. It's origins always come from USBs and, in fact, this is the very reason people tell you not to plug in USBs found on the streets. If you happen to plug in the device, it'll run the Autorun file and that will execute a second program that launches a seed into your Registry. From there, every time autorun is activated on "clean" drives, it'll leech onto that and so forth until the entire world is infected. Their effects are always varied. They can go from disabling hardware to permanently removing all internet access for that one computer.

 

I stayed up to about 3AM figuring out how to get rid of the bug, and eventually, I discovered something that really helped. First off, Anti-Spyware Remover, the most malicious looking antivirus, is actually useful. It managed to pull off and detect (mostly detect) the trojan a mile away. Secondly, that Chromebook I give so much crap? Actually helped in this case. Turns out, because Chromebooks don't run ".exe" files, they are immune to the "disease", not to mention their default (and only) view setting is showing invisible files. Allowing you to access otherwise restricted drive folders for alteration.

 

In the end, I took a kitchen knife and had a bit of fun chopping the drive to pieces. The movies were destroyed and all the computers and externals were disinfected thanks to the Chromebook. Norton 360, an antivirus on my family computer, was able to block all the drives' efforts to sabotage. I was never able to play Watch_Dogs.

 

Lesson of today is a real one. No jokes here. Don't look down at the underdog. Someday, he'll be the one pulling you out of a pickle.

 

Tomorrow I'll post a picture of my MLP Collection after a year of Bronyism. It's a special blog post.

Another day, another entry, hmm? Well, that's what it seems like to me. How've I been? Oh, I've been alright. Staying up 'till 3AM working on assignments, getting into fights with chatroom "friends", and all that good stuff. Do I get a break? Yeah, sometimes. The cover for today was originally going to be a picture featuring a before and after photo of my collection since being a brony, but I'm going to leave that for October 15th, and for those who read "Grand Theft Applejack", will know that's my anniversary. Go me! You can expect a photo of the collection on that day.

 

Anyway, today's story is about pony mane styling. Now let me get this off my chest, I have a high respect for whoever can style hair. Sure, I don't like it when people touch my hair, but for those talented folks who can whip up something amazing with nothing more than a couple of combs and a pair of scissors, I tip my stat-track fedora for you guys. THIS ONE'S FOR YOU!

 

What's the first thing you do when you buy a brushable Pony doll? Criticize the bad packaging, seriously! Hasbro is the only big company who still can't pack their crap! Ahem, I'm getting off topic. The second thing you do when you buy a brushable? Hide it from your par- I mean, style the mane, probably. For those who hold pride in their collections, you're willing to go the extra mile to make sure your pony dolls are looking their best for your neighboring haters and disapproving fathers. I try to be the most "collective" brony a brony can be, (collecting merch, t-shirts, bedwear, stickers...) so I make sure my ponies are ready for the gala. The catch is that I can't style hair for crap.

 

But I don't give up! And being oblivious, I of course turned to Youtube, your daily dose of bad memes, commentary channels and, in my suggestions, terrible pony-tubers. (WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE? UGH! They move ponies around a camera and make bad puns! UUGH! the mane styles are nice though.)
So I embarked on a journey to find the most informative, english-speaking, gentlecolt who could teach me his ways of conditioner.

 

I found him about two minutes later.

 

Turns out, it's like real hair with the exception of large clumps of glue stuck in both the mane and tail. Knowing me, I don't have a glue remover, so I just try to cut out what I can without leaving the mane maimed (they don't grow back). One of my biggest fails this year has to be in this moment; the moment where I'm scrambling around the house looking for the tiniest rubber bands man-kind has ever conceived. It took a good ten minutes, but I eventually resorted to pulling a few strings out of my dental cabinets. Y'know, I was supposed to apply these rubber-bands for braces, but I never got around to it. I guess they went toward a better use. . . pony dolls.

 

All in all, I think the mane styles went fairly well. I had bought two ponies (both Explore Equestria standard brushables), Starlight Glimmer and Applejack, and even though I copied everything the tutorial said, I believe I can rightfully be proud. After all, spilling conditioner on an expensive laptop while trying to perform major rubber band application is a pretty challenging feat.

 

So what did I learn from all of this? If you need hair bands for ponies, ask your doctor. Tell them it's congenital.

Hey! Have you checked out our series premiere? I'm writing blog posts everyday for the next month, so be on the look out!

 

So how many of you own a Chromebook? Yeah? Nah? Okay. For those who are thinking of getting one, don't. For those who have them, I pity you and share your pain. And for the people who don't know what a Chromebook is,

"A Chromebook is a watered down version of your Nokia 2002 Mobile set to run glorified Extensions only approved by the Google Store. No, it cannot run Android apps or any form of program built for your phone."

 

Got it? Good.

 

Well, I was unfortunate to overestimate the power of the Chromebook. When I heard you could mount a copy of Linux onto the Chromebook's main OS, Chromium, I jumped on it. I quickly downloaded a copy of "Chroot", a "root" or something that connects to something else. Yeah, I don't know Linux (and frankly, I don't want to [yet]).

 

Anyway, the reason I wanted run Linux on my crappy Acer Chromebook was because I've heard that Steam is a big supporter on the Penguin platform and having been deprived of all PC games for over a month, I was at the point of modding my Aqua Blue 3DS to run EA's Battlefront.

 

The installation took about 30 minutes. I had to wipe my hard drive, but 2 gigs of homemade vectors is hardly a loss. Afterward, I had to activate the chroot by going through the Shell. A couple lines of meaningless code later, and I was surfing on the most primitive interface I'd ever seen. Y'see, I made the mistake of installing a copy of "XFCE" which makes WinME look like Win7. Everything was just overall dull and bland. Simple Grays and Navy Blues; not very pretty. I know I probably could've changed it up, but I was too worried about overheating my Chromebook due to the OS mounting.

 

About 15 minutes into my deep exploration, my Craptop suddenly stops and goes black. Now, my model of Chromebook, the Acer 17-inch White doesn't have a fan for the sake of size-reduction. That means my lap is on fire by the time I was even thinking of installing Steam. Not to mention the 2GBs of RAM and Intel i3 that came with the system. (Both of which are not upgradable; I couldn't even identify the 15GB HDD). So, with fuming defeat, I turn the laptop back on and try my hand again, this time making it to the point that I've successfully installed Steam.

 

Steam was pretty much the same interface we've all come to know. The only problem is that it couldn't recognize those Unicode Characters that we all love spamming today. It was really depressing seeing familiar faces accompanied with a series of "ࡢ"s. I installed Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth without a problem.

 

Only a few people know this, but I'm a huge BOI player. I've gotten a rough 70 percent completion, but I'm still going strong. What I can't handle, however, is when my computer crashes mid-playthrough. I know BOI is set to save every room entered, but come on, Chromebook!

 

I think the funnier things about Linux on Chromebook, is that the hotter the Mobo got, the glitchier the game became. I started seeing weird physics placeholders in the Dank Caves. Lag became a big issue, too. I would've excused it if it were the original, "Wrath of the Lamb", but this was Afterbirth, so all that should've been fixed.

 

I had a good time with Linux on Chromebook, but it wasn't my cup of tea, especially when the screen continued to black out every hour or so. Simply not acceptable for gaming.

 

Ah well, more pony tomorrow.

Wow, feels like forever since I've told an actual story! This one's new, and in fact, during my hiatus. I told you it'd come in handy!

 

I haven't really told anyone this, but I'm a big fan of Creepypastas. I love them! They're like the next level of horror material, and if done correctly, can be used to keep you on your toes for the next week!

 

But there's a problem (there always is)

 

I have somewhat of a "sanity meter" built into my mind. If I listen to too many readings, I become scared of the world around me. Even if I know it's fake, or there's no way the events described are possible, I'm still terrified of my own shadow. So I established a "three-fiction" rule (I only listen to three a night, if desired). But of course, I'm an idiot and wish to listen to as many as I want. Rest in peace, sanity.

 

This "sanity meter" is nothing new. I've had it long before I became a brony. The catch is that I listen to, and read, things that are related to what I like, and at the moment, that means ponies. So OF COURSE I'm going to listen to some PonyPastas!

 

Yeah, that was a bad idea.

 

I was on the Ponyville.FM when I found out Scribbler was doing a reading on, "Does it Hurt to Sleep?", a rather well done fiction. Anyway, the video was about a day old and I was curious. As I explained above, I'm a sucker for that sort of thing, so I decided to give it a shot.

 

Like I said, it was very well written and somewhat believable. Of course, there was a bit of descriptive issues near the end, but that's all fine and dandy when you've got a reader building up the atmosphere. When the first story came to a close, I was intrigued to listen to another, then another. Finally, I stumbled across psychological horror fiction by the name of, "The Hole in My Face"

 

Now, normally I'd laugh at something like this, and I did; but it really got in my head after a while. The bad part about this? It starred Applejack, my fiance. (If you don't get that joke, look back for a previous blog entry, "Telling My Brother How Unworthy I Am". I still don't know where that ring is going to go. . . anal rings)

 

Let's just say, after the creepypasta, I didn't feel myself. I went to bed and stared at my AJ plush for more than an hour. For some reason, I couldn't quite get the thought out of my head. Her face was as plush and cute as usual, but what if it was an illusion like the story described. I touched it just to make sure.

 

My insanity lasted a good three days. I couldn't think, or bear to look, at my fiance for as long as there was day. No, I didn't have nightmares. If I did, I'd put them down, but I think that's a good story for another time.

 

Lesson of the day is to not read sp00ky stories without adult suppervision (see what I did there? The title's name has "Dinner" and the ending lesson has "Supper" ( ͡º ͜ʖ͡º) )

"Back to pony!" As they say. This is the official beginning of "RealityPublishing's Tales of Unfortunate Tails: Season 2", and I am glad to be back. After a month and a half, I'm finally going to release part 2 of, "My Interpretation of the Brony Fandom". It's been a while, but I'm glad I waited because while surfing the web, I discovered something that I thought I'd share.

 

Last time, I talked more about why the fandom is dying and how it's nothing more than a perception of what we think of it. This time, however, I've got a little more up my sleeve. Something that really bends the behind-the-scenes. Now, originally, I was going to pin everything down on EquestriaDaily, but I suddenly realized they weren't at fault. Someone else was.

 

So let's return to our original question:

"Is the Fandom Dying? If so, how can we save it?"

 

Now, why is this fandom different from all other fandoms? What many believe is that we are all together no matter what. We'll stick up for each other because we have been seen putting the morals of Friendship is Magic to heart. While this may or may not be true, we're not all together. As I said in Part 1, in order to save the fandom is to create content of our own, but here's a contradiction:

 

"How can we save the fandom, if nobody watches our stuff?"

 

I'm going to talk about something that is relevant one way or another. Whether or not you want to be one of these people is completely up to you, but it still decides our fate. I'm talking about Horse-Fame, a level of respect gained in the Brony fandom. Horse-fame is depicted by the amount of content and attention that person is getting and whether or not they can keep up. The problem about Horse-Fame is that it's been established since the dawn of MLP Season 1. We all know who LittleshyFiM, KP, BlackGryph0n, EurobeatBrony, and TheLivingTombstone are. Sure, they weren't horse-famous overnight, but it was a lot easier than what many of us have to do today to hit that first thousand views. With those big names set in stone, who are we to argue with the big leagues? How can the fandom survive if they disappear?

 

Now, the reason I was going to give EquestriaDaily the blame was because I thought they only posted "big names" and their work. No, that is wrong. EquestriaDaily is the one promoting smaller bronies and their written work. However, there are some groups that continue to promote the more popular ponies instead of turning to the surviving talent. Yes, people are growing day by day, but there is much more talent going around than we appear to see. We can't stand in the shadows of those whom cast them. We have to create a name for ourselves. Write what you have on mind! Play the songs that appear in your head! Be inspired!

 

There is nothing wrong with Horse-Fame, but when it is used as an exclusive club to promote themselves, then it is at fault.

 

What does this have to do with a dying fandom? Everything. With our figureheads stepping down from their throne, only to leave a legacy, it makes us all turn our heads and think. When the empire falls, so do the people. We need to create figures of our own; we need to decide. I have seen many underrated works in this community, the MLPForums, but they don't receive the attention they deserve. Music creators all gather here and share their works; they collaborate. Writers come here to show off their work and help others to edit. These forums have an entire section devoted to helping those in need. If brony community is generally known to help others, where are the Horse-Famous ponies when we need them?

Firstly, lemme just say it's great to be back. Did I enjoy my hiatus? No. I didn't. I was forced by my own will to finish a plethora of fanfictions that I almost gave up on. (I didn't. You can find them on my fimfiction page).

 

Anyway, today was my birthday. Happy birthday me. With that birthday came a very special surprise from Scott Cawthon, creator of the FNAF series and his all new, "Sister Location". Let me be clear,

I hate the game, not you or the guy who made.

 


Now, for those who don't know, I was a FNAFer before I became a brony, so I've got a lot of respect for the Five Nights franchise. This? This is something else. Firstly, and I will try to steer clear of spoilers, the game is completely revamped. There is nothing that resembles the first games. This game could've been a separate entity of its own. Why Scott decided to beat a dead horse is completely unknown. He should have gone with something a little more original. The mechanics of the game are all fresh and 3D-like, but that comes with problems.

 

The camera is a piece of crap. The entire time you play it, you're fighting it. Move the mouse up? WHOOPS. Glitches back down to the bottom. This goes on, but you eventually get used to it and move along. My main problem is with Night 2. No, I haven't beaten it, but I'm not sure I ever will. The game requires you to reboot 8 different rooms by holding down a button. Sounds easy, right? No. Instead, there's "Funtime Freddy" in the room with you, waiting around like some kind of creep. Naturally, this being a fnaf game, you've gotta spam the voice box (like FNAF3 for those familiar) and distract him. He'll go away for about 2 seconds before you have to do it all again.

 

I have no problem with that. The real problem is where you get to the very last reboot, become jump-scared, and then have to do everything over again while listening to the twenty minute intro all over again. Good job, Scott. Good job. (keep in mind I did this for a good 3 hours.) Unstoppable cut-scenes are the pinnacle of fear. Not to mention lost progress. (this is coming from a guy who plays classic 90s games regularly)

 

All in all, the game is boring, buggy, innovative, but not a FNAF game. You want a good game? Go play Outlast or the Resident Evil 7 Demo a thousand times. Stay away from this mess (he better fix the game)

 

Anyway, sorry for that rant, I know it was uncalled for. We'll be returning to our regular, daily brony tales tomorrow. Stay tuned! Thanks!
