    Forward. I am expected to move forward. Regardless of whether or not I can handle it. Regardless of even if I'm going to make it through. Still, the forward momentum is expected. Alone and weary of my Life's lot, I'm apparently to blame for everything that's wrong. Statistically speaking, it can't all be me, right? Still, the forward momentum is expected. People I know are dying faster now. It feels like everything is winding up to fall down. So many faces that I once knew well are gone. Still, the forward momentum is expected. Is this the fate that Life has picked for me? If so, I want to make an executive choice, here; I don't have to take the abuse from anyone. I can move forward without being forced to. As long as I keep moving Forward.

    I’ve been inactive for a long time until recently, only posting around five or so content each week, sometimes less than that. I kinda just posted one or two things occasionally on these forums during that time. This started sometime in the beginning of 2019 and has lasted up until a few days ago. The reason why that’s happened is because I’ve been experiencing a ton of difficulty with depression and anxiety. I had no motivation to post any content on the forums and I constantly felt depressed and anxious. That’s also why I’ve been having a tough time in life, even though I’ve been getting counseling and therapy for the past few months. Now that I’ve been taking a new medication though, I think it’s finally working and I have more motivation and energy to get out of this rut that I’ve been stuck in for a year or two now. I still have a long road to recovery, but at least things are looking better for me. Also, I wanted to say something else. Even though I’ve become very active on these forums again, I don’t intend to stay active for a very long time. I’m planning to get very busy with things in life soon, and that means less time for me to be active on these forums. I’ll still continue posting on these forums for the time being though, until I start getting very busy again.

    It's time for another weekly Samurai Fact! This week's fact... Archery. Before they were famously known as skilled swordsmen, the samurai class started off as horse-mounted archers. The need for swords and other weaponry arrived when the samurai would be the first ones to charge into war and other battle situations. But we'll be covering the full gambit of their weapons arsenal in another, future samurai fact.

    WARNING: THE FOLLOWING PROFILE CONTAINS RATHER STRONG LANGUAGE THROUGHOUT. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED. Name: Marvelous Civilian Name: Austin Oliver Species: Human Age: 12 Powers and Abilities: Heigtened perception, superhuman strength and speed, nigh-invincibility, deadly marksmanship with any weapon Appearance: Austin Oliver is a fairly typical-looking tween, if a bit of an early bloomer (as evidenced by the peach fuzz growing on his upper lip, mild acne, and bit of facial hair on his cheeks and chin). He has slightly long, dirty blonde hair, light green eyes, and appears rather light-skinned, almost pale. When transformed into Marvelous, he appears to be of adult height, dressed in an armor resembling a Heisei era Kamen Rider, colored primarily in red and gold. His symbol, that of a lightning bolt, appears around his waist, resembling a belt buckle. Bio: Austin Oliver is Pennsylvanian, born and raised. Most would call him a foul-mouthed, arrogant little shit, and he wouldn't argue otherwise. He's always had to look out for himself; his home life certainly isn't unpleasant, but it's rife with problems - his mom came out as lesbian recently, and this hasn't sat well with anyone, especially not Austin himself. Oh no, he isn't homophobic by any stretch of the imagination, but it's a lot to take in even with a town with such a prominent gay community like New Hope's. Doesn't help that his dad ran off afterwards, almost like he blames Austin for "making" his ex-wife gay. Add to that Austin having been recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, and you'll start to understand why Austin's been acting out so much recently - he's got a lot of new things entering his world, and he has no idea how to deal with them. But there's at least someone Austin knows will listen - the old dude in the park. He and Austin get along pretty good; the old fart's a World War II veteran, probably the oldest person the boy knows, and he seems to have lived a fulfilling life. So what made an old fart like him decide to settle in a place like New Hope? "That," the old man answers, will be told in due time. " So weeks and weeks pass by until Austin, impatient, asks him, " OK, what's the big fucking holdup!? " The old man glares at him. "Is that any way to speak with your elders?" " If they'rd not telling me jack shit, yeah, I think it is! " Pinching the bridge of his nose, the old man sighs. "Alright, then, follow me. I have to show you something." Immediately Austin is skeptical . Is this guy some kinda pedo, wanting to get into a 12 year old's pants? The old man seems abhorred by the very concept, and he truthfully denies it. Before Austin can get another word in, the old fellow seems to mutter something, and all around them the park seems to dissolve into nothingness. They're in some kind of cave, the old man now holding a staff with a lightning bolt at the end of it. "Austin," he says. " i've been searching for someone like you for decades. Someone to carry on my legacy. " "Legacy? The hell are you on about, dude?" " You see, Austin, I have not had the easiest life either. My parents were killed when I was a baby, and I was raised by my evil uncle. It sounds cliche, yes, but everything I have said to you up to this point is true. Do you believe that? " Austin only nods. Good. Now, I was approached by an old man-much like myself nowadays-one night, and he was looking to pass on a lsgacy of his own. The legacy of a champion, pure of heart and selfless no matter how much life got them down. And that is the legacy I want to pass onto you." The old man, the former Champion of Earth, raises his staff. " Austin Oliver, I bequeath unto you the powers of the mighty wizard. The wisdom of Sia, the speed of Horus, the invincibility of Achilles, the spirit of Zelos, the prowess of Artume, and the valor of Malwort! Say the name that, together, these gods will grant you the powers of the Champion! Say the name...SHAZAM!" Weaknesses: On the surface, Marvelous is able to withstand anything and everything thrown at him. That only extends to his hero form, however. In his regular child form, however...all bets are off. Marvelous' rogues gallery, like those of "the Champion" before him, can and will use every opportunity to try and kill Austin, his age be damned.I

    Name: Infinigirl Civilian Identity: Josie Carter Species: Cloned Eloi Age: 14 Powers and Abilities: Much like Infinite, Infinigirl's reality warping powers manifest themselves as a standard Flying Brick powerset. Having the mind and emotional maturity of a 14 year old girl, however, means her powers are much more volatile and dangerous - a teenage temper tantrum could very well mean the apocalypse, hence why Infinite has taken her under his wing in the Victory Legion; working with others ensures better control of her godlike abilities. Appearance: In contrast to Infinite's flexible yet armorlike outfit, Infinigirl wears a much more comfortable silver and black blazer-and-skirt combination, almost resembling a magical girl in some aspects. Her hair a light brown, and she has blues eyes in contrast to Infinite's gray. Bio: Much like everything else related to him, Infinigirl's creation over a 21-year period is connected to Infinite's eventual peaceful anarchist society. Carefully cloned in the various Sanctuaries constructed by Infinite across the earth, Infinigirl has a twofold purpose - first, to act as Infinite's successor for when his work on Earth has been completed, and secondly to act as the daughter he could never truly have. Infinigirl, like any teenager however, wants something more out of life than just to be a successor to Infinite. She wants to be her own person. Weaknesses: As stated before, Infinigirl's powers are much more volatile due to her hormonal changes; much like Infinite, she needs to keep her emotions under control lest reality be torn asunder. Personality: Josie is (initially) rather self-centered and a drama queen, and tends to abuse her powers to aid her in everyday life or to fulfill whatever she desires at that particular moment. Deep down, however, she really is Infinite's (cloned) flesh and blood, sharing his rebellious spirit and desire to help others. Granted, she always tries to find the quick and easy solutions to problems (and more often than not they tend to only be temporary fixes at best; at worst they don't fix anything and do more harm than good). Between all the superhero stuff and studying for algebra, Josie Carter has a lot to learn.

    Borderlands 1 v Borderlands 2 v Borderlands 3 Category [Max Possible] Borderlands 1 (RM) Borderlands 2 Borderlands 3 Aesthetic [20] [18] [16] X [19] NPCs [50] [42] X [48] [33] Playable Characters [30] [24] X [26] [24] Story [50] [38] X [49] [37] Gun “Feel” [30] [28] [27] X [30] Weapon Variety [70] [58] [62] X [66] Skill Tree Design [70] [57] [63] X [64] Weapon-Based [30] X [30] [20] [23] Farming [50] [41] [30] X [45] Skill Design [50] [42] [43] X [44] General Fun Factor [50] [44] [46] X [48] Total [500] 422 430 [X] 428 Aesthetic- Really the graphics don't matter all too much, but Borderlands 3 is the game that takes it here for sure. The guns particularly probably have the best design of all three games quite easily. Borderlands 2 ends up the worst of the three because it's visuals now are starting to seem dated in comparison to the new visuals with quite a few noticeable differences. But this is no biggie. NPCs- Anybody who's played these games should really be easily able to see how Borderlands 2 takes the cake here. Handsome Jack is quite easily one of the best, well-written, video game villains of all time who's hilarious in his own right even in a game series devoted to a violent sense of humor that leaves the audience maniacally laughing. This is unfortunately where Borderlands 3 falters most though. Ava is straight up terrible, and the lack of many favorites from Borderlands 2 leaves there more to be desired, even among more humorous NPCs and Bosses like Captain Traunt. Playable Characters- Anybody who knows a little about my preferences will know the answer to this one. Axton single-handedly allows Borderlands 2 a victory in this category, even if I also really liked Krieg (because I do like OG Mordecai and Zane). The other two just don't have anything like the handsome, gorgeous husbando that is Axton... Seriously, he's quite something. No wonder he appears semi-naked in adult magazines inside of Moze's mech... Story- Borderlands 2 hits this category out of the park. The story of the second game is not only a masterpiece, but a demonstration of the potential of a Borderlands story arc. Roland's death hits the player HARD and really impacts them in a way they won't soon forget. Also the motivations of Jack are VERY well put out there. As for the other two games, Borderlands 1 has a very barebones story... It works, but it's nothing spectacular. Just an adventure to the Vault. Borderlands 3 on the other hand is a bit disappointing here, but I actually won't spoil it, thus the lack of spoiler tags. Gun Feel- Borderlands 3 simply takes this category and RUNS with it. The guns feel powerful and impactful like you're really firing a gun. The other two simply don't have this, and 2's in fact just feels like you're just using a bullet hose instead of a real gun in comparison. Weapon Variety- Borderlands 3 also easily takes this category with it's ABSURDLY high number of legendaries. You've got stuff as simple in design as the Crossroads that's essentially an SMG version of the old Conference Call, and then you have really unique weapons like the Duc that's essentially what happens when a Jakobs revolver meets a Torgue gun. Borderlands 1 is a clear loser here because there's so many far too similar legendaries that don't differentiate themselves (Looking at you, Tediores). Skill Tree Design- This is a close one, but Borderlands 3 takes it for its level 2 Action Skills, even if I have some gripes when it comes particularly to Fl4k's skill trees, because he's just overtuned and there's also some bad design with his ability to make weapons that should never crit able to. Borderlands 2 is a VERY close second particularly with the design of Krieg's skill trees. I absolutely adore the care they took to design a character that just rampages into battle, damaging himself but absolutely destroying everyone in his wake. Borderlands 1 is a distant third, thanks to Roland's skill trees being $#!+. Weapon-Based- This category was made specifically to tell you the thing I miss most about Borderlands 1 that ISN'T in 2 or 3. GUN PROFICIENCIES. I totally loved this mechanic, and instead of refining it further what do they do other than introduce one of the worst design choices in Borderlands history, the Badass Ranks (not censoring because that's just what they're called). Small buffs you get for seemingly no reason that apply to EVERY character... Guardian Ranks in 3 are better designed, but just please give us back our gun proficiencies (and our broken BL1 Shotguns). Farming- Borderlands 3 easily takes this category as it allows you to choose how you want to farm your legendaries. Whether you like farming one boss or you like Borderlands 2's style (which is the inferior way by the way, just saying), you can farm them up how you like. Now for BL2's way of farming, I HATE IT. It's tedious, long, and just ridiculous for some legendaries, and that's not even MENTIONING pearls. That's easily my LEAST favorite part of BL2 and it's biggest problem. Skill Design- Nothing really to say here except they just got progressively better at what they already were doing since the start, and that is to create interesting and diverse playstyles for each character. Still missing the Truxican Wrestler class mod though, and also the greatness that was Pistol Mordecai. General Fun Factor- Really just a category for anything I left out, and Borderlands 3 does it all the best of the three. Overall Winner- Borderlands 2, but barely. The problems with 3's story and NPCs are just too difficult to ignore, even if the gameplay is an improvement in every possible way. Also, republishing so everyone can see this. Shame on me.

    I don't I will ever come to this in good for the simple reason that I always complete the 'important' jobs first such as school work. Anyway, I get into to it pretty easily because it just my thoughts as I go along. Well I will need to pull together the plot points and narrative from the previous two points for a look into how chapter 1 will be structured. Synopsis: Eniac arrives at night when no other pony is awake just the landlord. Landlord passes the news of the stranger to a friend and the chain continues. Eventually we reach Sugar Plum and she decides in that moment to find out more. Here the reader also learns about Sugar Plum from her own perspective. The landlord is tired so won't be paying close attention to his surroundings. He will mainly be in his own thoughts: the weather is quite cold, well winter is coming and the sky is clear. That's the weather ponies. Maybe they could cover it up a bit for tomorrow. But it shouldn't be too miserable I need to get on with some gardening. I should get a gardening pony would be cheaper, maybe I can get this pony to garden, maybe...maybe he does not pitch...it is late etc. It will be more fluid than that but yea, there is no context just straight in. Then Eniac arrives in the distance walking straight to the landlord who gives his opinion of Eniac as he arrives. Eniac just acknowledges what the landlord is saying. He enters the house and closes the door as the landlord is talking. the landlord becomes a bit flustered, anyway unnecessary detail. The landlord then tells a friend the next day about this strange and rude new comer who wouldn't talk to him and is dressed completely in rags. The story slowly changes as the message is passed through the ponies with the dialogue becoming more snatched as the message gets closer to Sugar Plum. It hits Sugar Plum. The first remark is a random remark from Sugar before settling into the idea of this new pony. Here there is a different image of Eniac with Sugar adding exaggerated characteristics and thinking about how best to approach him. She also thinks about all the meetings with friends and plans for the village she needs to carry out. She also notices things around her on other ponies. The reader gets the feeling that she is very mentally active and very concerned about other ponies in terms of how they see her. The voice of the other pony she is talking to starts to slip into her thoughts. She finally says something to the other pony; along the lines of: 'That's fantastic [so and so] but I need to see this new pony!' and then random remarks about future plans and anything that was talked about previously. The first chapter will be pretty short just an introduction to Sugar Plum and the arrival of Eniac as well as setting up the narrative for the rest of the story. I may revisit this adding more detail, but I think there is enough here to start making drafts after I have analysed the other chapters.

    Picture taken from the Club Penguin Wiki. Name: Lettuce Civilian Name: John S. Manchot Species: Toon Penguih Age: Unknown, but claims to be 19; considering he's from the "Tooniverse", that's actually very vague. Powers and abilities: Limited reality warping and harnessing of physics - only affects immediate area - advanced healing factor, limited omniscience (i.e. fourth wall breaking) Appearance: Small green penguin, about 3 1/2 feet tall, white sclera and black irises, stomach area also white, with orange beak and rounded rectangular feet (note lack of visible toes) Bio: Lettuce claims to be from an alternate reality known as the "Tooniverse", which seems to primarily based upon cartoons from the Golden and Dark (particularly in regards to Hanna-Barbera) Ages of Animation, living alongside existing characters and expies of such. Through the aftereffects of the dimension-crossing incident elaborated on in Jyger85's crossover between Starslip and Ms. Amazing, Lettuce is pulled from his home dimension and dropped into the Renegadeverse's version of Earth. With no way to return home, Lettuce settles in San Francisco, where he lives with his human girlfriend Lynn and the nonbinary alien Ziggy, working as a performer on a local children's television show - hey, if people just think you're a short person in a costume, when in Rome, do as the Romans do, right? Personality: While Lettuce might partially be based on Howard the Duck in terms of his origin story, he's the opposite of said character in terms of personality - overly idealistic and naive to a fault. In fact, his world doesn't seem to have any ideas of real-world concepts such as serious violence, swearing, or the ramifications of alcohol and smoking. It's this childlike wonder and curiosity, mixed with Lettuce's often zany schemes to satisfy base desires like food or making a quick buck, that generally drag him into his adventures in heroics. Weaknesses: If Lettuce has any major weakness, it's that he is just as susceptible to real world laws of physics just as others are to his. Adding onto that, his healing factor works similar to Deadpool's: he might be able to heal from any injury, but as a result of the sudden dimension-crossing, it not only takes a while, but is...rather painful and gruesome, depending on the injury.

    The Infinite, as depicted via Hero Maker 3 by Jyger85. Used with permission. Name: (The) Infinite Civilian Name: Joe Carter Species: Extradimensional Being, an "Eloi", as they are named Age: 1,938 Powers and Abilities: On the surface, The Infinite 's powerset appears to be the standard Flying Brick/Superman Substitute set - flight, X-ray vision, godlike strength, etc. But it goes beyond that - his true powers lie in the ability to bend reality to his will, do anything he'd like. But due to his nature as a Chaotic Good being, he chooses not to exploit these powers (See "Weaknesses" for the more important and real reasons). Appearance: Joe Carter is a tall man at around 6 feet or so, his skin tone a dark tan and his eyes a low silver; both of these are deliberate on his part, as he identifies not with any race or nation, but with humanity as a whole. He wears an armor made of flexible yet strong material, in blue and gold. Bio: Joe Carter has not had an easy life, mostly because he's lived for almost two millennia, adopted many names and forms, and experienced many things than one man does in his own lifetime...he isn't sure who he really is anymore. But he remembers the important things. He was "born" in 81 AD, somewhere in the Roman Empire. Raised among the early Christians, it was from them that he learned things such as morality and self-control - which especially came in handy when he started discovering his powers. Interpreted by his community as neither angel nor demon, the man who would become Joe Carter was sent away on his own so that he could escape both persecution from the Romans and possibly a violent reaction from other followers of Christ. At 25, he stopped aging physically. At 30, he took on his first persona - a missionary who would teach in secret. At 50, he became a Roman soldier and witnessed the true horrors authority could sink to. Things get muddled from there on out, but what this man took away from his centuries of experience is that humanity needed to unite as one. Not through force, or through forming mutually beneficial relationships of power that would eventually rot from within. But through the examples of goodwill and inspiring others to do the same. He would become a hero. And through becoming a hero, hopefully humanity would feel the need to unite as an anarchist society. Personality: As stated before, Infinite is a benevolent anarchist Superman, taking more inspiration from the Man of Steel's Golden Age incarnation more than any other. He is willing to help those in need, but makes a point to ensure his actions are more good than chaotic a lot of the time. This ties into his biggest fear - the very real danger of his message becoming corrupted and used by more...violent anarchists supposedly in his name, but whose real motivations are more self-interested in causing chaos for the sake of it. Weaknesses: Since (unlike Superman) his powers are not determined by any of our physical laws, Infinite's logical weakness lies in his willpower and emotions - much like a Green Lantern. Hence why he's only tapping into the surface levels of his powers. He's fully aware that he can become a god like so many people can claim, he deliberately chooses not to for fear of not only becoming corrupted by the potential, but also because he might end up tearing reality to shreds in the process.

    She-Ra And The Princesses Of Power season 2 is starting soon. I like that cartoons in recent years have story arcs that go for an entire season. For shows in the past each episode would be a stand alone story and there was little or no development. The new She Ra has interesting characters and a story line that keeps you coming back. This means there must be an ultimate end and wrap up of the story. How long that can go on is the question. Here are my thoughts on how the show could go for the next few seasons. We saw at the end of season 1 that Catra has been promoted to second in command under Hordak. I think we should see a major offensive by The Horde. They could win a major victory by the end of season 2, leaving a cliff hanger. We learn more about the First Ones. Maybe they fought The Horde in the past. Season 3 shows the Rebellion fighting back, gaining ground, and defeating The Horde. Catra quits or is kicked out of The Horde. She blames Shadow Weaver. The rebellion uses First Ones technology to gain an edge. Season 4, Catra bums around the Fright Zone and mopes. She visits seedy bars and gets into fights. Eventually she forms her own group of pirates who are not allied with any group. They steal from targets of opportunity. All the while Catra and Adora cross paths and we see character development. This is the season where Catra tells Adora "I love you." But Adora tells Catra that she, Adora, only loves Catra as a friend. This pushes Catra deeper into depression. Meanwhile the war between The Horde and the Rebellion continues. Season 5 can be the final season. The Horde is finally defeated. Catra loses any desire for power or vengeance. She just wants an end to her emotional turmoil. Her hatred for Shadow Weaver increases, culminating in a confrontation where she kills Shadow Weaver. Catra makes peace with Adora but realizes that she still can't fit in with the Rebellion. She embarks on a quest of self-discovery. This could spin off into more seasons or a second show. This is what I think so far.

    I finally finished, and I'm fairly proud of the final product. There are definitely a few things that I now see I could have done better, but I'm still happy with it. EDIT: Here's the new pictures. It's definitely a lot easier to make sure the camera is focused when there's actually a person behind it. So anyway, this was a lot more difficult to make than it should have been. There are next to no ponysuit tutorials online, and the ones I could find looked terrible, were extremely vague, or both. In most cases, both. A good chunk of this suit was made through a lot of experimentation because of that, and now I know what to do and what to change next time. Let's start with a list of features and stuff, cause I don't feel like writing a bunch right now. -two sets of magnetic eyelids -magnetic mane (separated into front and rear pieces) -magnetic horn -magnetic cutie mark -the tail is replaceable since it's just attached to a belt and pulled through a hole in the bodysuit -swappable indoor and outdoor hooves -hidden zipper down the front of the suit -hidden zippers for each hand -removable Poly-fil stuffing in both arms and legs -two 40mm fans in the head plugged into a 3,000mAh battery that can power them for close to eight hours So yeah, that's pretty much it. Since everything's removable I could easily use the bodysuit and head as a base for any white pony I want, provided they have blue eyes (like my ponysona). I feel like there's a bunch of other stuff I could say, but I just can't think of anything else I want to say (which is weird), so I think I'll just leave it here.

    Can my rental house be haunted by a cat? Several months ago I heard a cat screaming and it was either just outside or under the house. I went outside and did not find it. The yard is fenced. Sure, a cat can jump, but I heard it multiple times and never found it. It sounded like it was under the house. I opened the crawl space and looked in with a flashlight. It was raining and I didn't see anything. I left it open and opened the gate, thinking it would escape. Then I placed some ham outside to lure him out. At one point the screaming was so bad that I half crawled in through a puddle of water. The next day I looked in and saw dog's legs. It was creepy because I only saw the legs because the rest of it was hidden by the wooden beam. I left the crawl space open the rest of the day then closed it. I figured if there was anything still inside then it was going to starve. I was done messing with it. Then last night I heard a cat scream and I swear to God it ran across the floor, under the house. A different part, under the living room. I don't know how it would have gotten under there.
