  1. ;( Meteonook says I have two more meteor showers this month; I'll keep an eye out for Celeste and see if she shows up on my island again.
  2. @KirbyFluttershy unfortunately, socks are the one type of clothing I haven't been trying to get my hand on :/ the closest thing I have is Striped Socks, and I only have those in Monotone and Green: https://nookazon.com/product/1441342356 @ExplosionMare my pumpkins seem to take 1 or 2 days to grow, at least when I water them. And I'm generally seeing them bearing either 1 or 2 pumpkins. By the by, I have a minor meteor shower on my island, with meteors at the following times---again, all USA Eastern Daylight Savings time: 10:23pm, 10:35pm, 10:49pm 11:01pm, 11:11pm 12:39am 1:17am, 1:25am, 1:33am 2:04am, 2:45am, 2:47am 3:26am, 3:31am, 3:32am, 3:37am Dodo code is 1B1JV; keeping the gate open all night. I'm typing this at 9:40pm; if anyone wants to grab candy from my Nook store, you've got about 20 minutes!
  3. I don't have "Horizontal Striped Tights", but I do have the black-and-white variation of the Striped Pants in my catalog: https://nookazon.com/product/1224490103?variant=1657099046
  4. @KirbyFluttershy @Will Guide @DJ Wolfe @Envy @Harii Moxxiie Celeste is on my island! I'm keeping the gate open all night while I sleep. EDIT: last time I saw her, she was in the hills north of my Tailor shop, but she strolls around quite a bit... Also, Redd is here, but he's only selling fakes. Dodo code: 1QL0N Shooting stars at: 12:05am, 12:31am, 12:40am, 12:41am 1:26am 2:05am, 2:27am, 2:46am, 2:48am 3:27am, 3:32am, 3:33am, 3:38am All times are USA Eastern Daylight Savings time.
  5. Let me know once you have gotten the candy. I'm keeping the gate open! (Even if it means you come twice two days in a row )
  6. Kind of. More like I dock my switch and leave it on, even though it's not actually connected to a TV---I moved it downstairs to my computer months ago to film some footage, and never moved it back! It's not switched on 24/7, though, but I'll keep it on until you've snagged your candy
  7. I'm keeping my island open, even while I'm AFK. The dodo code is J4WVP.
  8. That's what I've been doing. However wise that might seem, I unwisely forgot to sell my turnips before today :/
  9. Debate Symposium closed?  I haven't been in there for years, but from the sound of things, that's a good thing...!

    You know...I never knew that religious or political things aren't supposed to be in status updates until I rad Jeric's post.  I need to keep up to date on the forum's rules!

      I agree. :proud: For me, this is a place for people to spread friendship to each other and talk about the show that we love. :kindness:

      It’s not a place to have heated debates! :dry:

  10. I saw a bunch of G-1 episodes on youtube years ago---they've been taken down since :/ I thought it was a pretty decent adventure series with some good worldbuilding---it wasn't quite up to G-4's standards, but I thought it was pretty good. I actually thought about writing a G-5 fanfic that brought back a bunch of fictional species that G-1 introduced that were never continued in G-4: lava demons (who weren't necessarily evil, mind), ice orcs, salamanders, undines, kraken, lizard-folk...
  11. I'd have had a season, or maybe two consecutive seasons, where Hydia, Reeka, and Draggle make a comeback---ideally, they'd be the exact same witch-characters from G-1, traveling to Equestria's dimension to find new havoc to raise. I'd have had the start of the season introduce them, and then the majority of the episodes of the season would have either their main plot or their B-plot driven by one or more of the villains to keep their presence felt throughout the season. (I really feel like the show could've used some of that as a driving force to keep things a little more unified.) The season finale would see them crossed over with G-1 and defeated by the mane six and some G-1 characters, pony and human.
  12. Well, after $500, weeks of waiting, and 90 sweaty minutes of assembly-work done on an empty stomach, I finally have my Ms. Pacman arcade machine!  I picked it because it had yellow trim, four games that I didn't already have on my 40th anniversary Pacman arcade cabinet, and was a sit-down machine...

    And it turns out either I'm terrible at those games, or those games are terrible in comparison.  I mean, if you play Galaxian after getting used to Galaga, it feels awful---simpler enemy movements, a much less forgiving hitbox for your ship, fewer projectiles on the screen at once...!  And you'd think I was a moron from watching how I play Dig Dig 2!

    Hopefully, I'll get better as time goes on!

      Ooh, I've always wanted an arcade machine! :pinkie:

      Some arcade machines are better than others.  What got me hooked on arcade1up's work is actually their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles machine; I was afraid that machine was going to be discontinued, and I LOVED that game when I was a kid.  So when I saw one TMNT box for sale at Walmart, I bought it, mostly out of FOMO.  But for some reason, I find myself going to that arcade machine the least out of the four that I now own...

  13. Is this you, or is "Rainy Day" a fairly common name? https://www.deviantart.com/sonigiraldo/art/Rainy-day-858150669

  15. ...Aaaaaand today is my birthday!

    ...And tomorrow is when my Ms. Pacman arcade1up machine arrives :/

      ...Crap.  Brain fart!  My birthday is actually tomorrow (two days after I posted this); we just had my party yesterday!

      Thanks for the birthday wishes just the same!

  16. What happens when the irresistible force meets the immovable object?
  17. @Will Guide @DJ Wolfe @KirbyFluttershy @Envy @Harii Moxxiie Now Celeste is on my island! She was on one of the hills to the north last I saw; it was the more western of the two hills. My dodo code is 341VY; you know the drill: I'll keep the gate open while I sleep Small meteor showers will be on my island at: 10:35pm 10:56pm 11:06pm 11:32pm 12:04am 12:25am 12:51am 1:09am 1:46am 2:04am 2:25am 2:47am 3:47am 3:52am 3:53am 3:58am All those times are USA Eastern Daylight Savings time.
  18. @Will Guide It's 418 bells this afternoon! Not sky-high but not at all shabby. My Dodo code is 7Q3S1. I'll leave my gate open and be AFK; techinically I'm supposed to be working right now, and I have some errands to run this afternoon.
  19. @Will Guide @Envy @KirbyFluttershy @DJ Wolfe @Harii Moxxiie There's a high turnip price spike on my island later this afternoon! I figured I should let you guys know about it pronto. It's not clear exactly how high it'll be, but ac-turnip.com says it'll be between 210 and 630!
  20. @Will Guide @Harii Moxxiie @KirbyFluttershy @DJ Wolfe Celeste is on my island! I'll be turning in to get some sleep soon, but I'm leaving my gate open overnight. Here's the dodo code: F9LNW I saw Celeste on one of the hills on my island that's to the north; it was the hill that was kind of center-west-ish. There are also sparse shooting stars; according to MeteoNook (which never let me down before), they'll be at: 10:45pm, 11:03pm, 11:16pm, 11:42pm, 12:07am, 12:09am, 12:14am, 12:35am, 1:19am, 1:56am, 2:14am, 2:35am, 2:57am, and 3:57am. All of those are Eastern USA Daylight Savings Time.
  21. Nice! I've not heard you do Kingdom Hearts music before---it's a series with some amazing songs in it, so if you're going to mix those with your Mario pieces, it'll be epic!
  22. I figure she'd keep superhero-ing with the Equestria Girls, maybe-maybe find ways to combine science and magic into something beautiful and amazing and effective at protecting either Equestria, earth, or both.
  23. I don't think it's weird at all to fantasize about that. I mean, I've daydreamed about pulling a complete deus ex machina by being pulled into Equestria, converting into a pony EQG-style along the way, finding that I'm an alicorn on the other side, calling myself the "prince of technology" in response to that discovery, and using my magic to build a giant mecha that I pretend to pilot by being in the head, omimously playing an organ behind a tough-to-penetrate forcefield, while the real control mechanisms are actually in the mecha's chest, so I'm just serving as a distraction. ...So...no: I don't think you're the weird one, here.
  24. Even if these forums are declining, I, for one, don't intend to leave any time in the foreseeable future
  25. It's true. When tragedies like that are overcome, that's the stuff that good stories are made of. The deeper the tragedy, the more epic the story is for overcoming it---I think that's what drew a lot of us to FiM in the first place!
