The Crown Tundra finally released and I couldn’t be happier. Honest.
I’m currently in the Slippery Slope (where there is an equal chance to both slip & slope) loping through the frosted hills and paying lip to the denizens of this sparkling countryside! The grass is filled with such Snowy Babies! Such clean, gently colored hides, cleancut edges & sharp, intelligent eyes Ice types have!
Caught one Amaura and let her play with a wild one.(on the right) Then my girl evolved!
It’s... so beautiful here. I’m... so happy.
So its my headcannon that a certain Grey Mare:
She shares rent and roommates with Golden Harvest. Two mares shacking up to share a house is common practice in Equestria and doesn't imply any prior relationship.
That she routinely changes what name she answers to several times a day on a whim, and without warning. And refuses to answer to anything that isn't a right, but random guess as to what she's decided. Pegusai do have a reputation for being "flighty airheads."
Her full name, susceptible to change, is: Ditzy-Doo "Muffins" "Derpy" "Thognar the Destroyer" Hooves.
I kinda don't respond to anything that isn't a Mention. Am I doing the Forums wrong? No one seems to talk to or notice me here.
There's... like, things that happen sometimes, like, events? And I haven't a clue what they do or how to be apart of things and I wanted to use these forums as socializing practice. As I have intense social anxiety.
...i'm sorry. I've been having building self-doubt, what with work and the way things are these days.

@Kujamih What comics have you done?
I made 2 amateur comics before...one was about the trash becoming alive and killing people ... Well even if it wasnt alive it's been killing people.... Im in the Fillypinnes... So trash slide is a thing....( A mountain of garbage collapsing to a near shantee town or what not).... Flooding cities due to clogged sewage.... Yeah i just made them alive in my comics!.... And i missed drawing...so i made fail-safe. With some of my pony oc friends here!....
I can join you in it if you want... Just give me an OC to put in the story .
I ever tell you the story of my gyrados Pokemon OC, Bloodred?
Team Rocket once experimented with radio waves at Lake Rage to force evolution in the local Magikarp so they'd be easy to catch and profitable. What I headcannoned, was that this only changed the body, not the mind and they hit one particularly large fishy boi.
He kept his red fish color but evolved into a towering monstrosity so huge that any movement twisted the waves into cataclysm and brought the thunderclouds, his voice unable to be below an ear-popping Kaiju roar.... but he still kept his tiny, little walnut of a fish brain. He just saw the humans running and yelling, alot of smashing and rumbling going on and just assumed, as any weak fishy would, that some huger predator monster was behind him making everyone scared of him.
That's probably why he always refers to himself in the third person, (and much like Heavy from TF2) is because he's just so happy that someone caught him and named him! If he hadn't willingly been caught, he probably couldn't have fed himself. He's just too stupid to realize that he's yelling when he talks or that others don't want hugs from a six-story tall sea serpent. Bloodred was probably the most powerful of my original pokemon, since even if he couldn't do much thinking enough to do an attack, he was far too big to be stopped. Him just going in for a pat could be life-threatening and him just turning around in an arena could count as a Thrash attack.
"Bloodred only wahn frend!"
"Y u run? Sit stel for tha hug!"
So excited to one day play Bard! The teller of tales, inspirer & supporter of others! And I want my impressionable obliviousness reflected in my character too! Walter Shine, human bard!
Why yes, who said humans were boring? They’re the best at being absolutely NUTS!
Cooking with Widdershins:
Okey! Now we goes to the shop for the foods! Uhp. No, It appears we have teleported inside the sun. You still filming?
We need salt, yes, garlic salt is good substitution. As we are also out of butter, a good substitute for that is a fresh liver and for that i'm going to need my cameraman to turn around real quick for a moment.
It does grill most things. .... Unfortunately, we were doing DESSERT this episode! Now my bananas has gone bad!
Also my camera-pony. I can't allow him to die. He's in this for the long haul.
Far too badly emotional to be around here much these days, I'm sorry.
Guess my next obsession. Yip!
So. In a Fenzy. While listening to Faerie music. Yes. I was just tidying up my sister's kids' bookpile.
You know, strewn about. Several books ripped to shreds, their bepaged guts strewn across tiled floor dotted with the speckled rust of encrusted debris.
I found an antique. This Sixty year old book on Fairy Tales. So old the embossed painting on its cover is shattering with mold. It's oldest copyright and likely compilation was in the Twenties. This, its earliest and latest reprinting is from the Sixties.
It's got what seems to be the original Jack & Beanstalk where the giant had two heads. And one story where, on apparently a sidequest, the hero decapitates Lucifer Himself to present His head to a princess. These are the stories they don't hold back in. The olden Fairy Tales were people get fully Owned.
Been big into D&D lately. We all know how a Lich works?
That basically some bad dude gains immortality by tethering their soul to an object, becoming quite literally 'materialistic' as possible and becomes a boss with an obvious secret Weak Spot to Hit for Massive Damage.
Well, did any Lich ever thing to, oh, I dunno...... do something like Make the MOON your phylactery? Let's see you destroy that!
Oh, and now that I think of it, Widdershins, my draconequus-sona is basically a Demi-Lich.

there are many video games actually, Icewind dale, baldur's gate and neverwinter nights, i'm sure there are more but i only know the old ones, you can either have it turn by turn or switch it to real-time(it's still turn/dice based but the computer takes care of it), and you can pause it so you can give comands to your party without getting overwhelmed
So its one player playing multiple characters? Thought Dungeons and Dragons was based around not being able to tell what actions could result in, communal storytelling. Video games kind of have to be restricted in what you can do which is why many of them don't really have, like, subplots or cut-tos.
I have to wonder how that works.
I mean, i've played, like, Fire Emblem but that's kind of like chesspieces.
there is an option for multiplayer but the internet wasn't that big back then (1998-2002)
so if you play solo, you make one character that is you, and you find the rest during your adventures, they talk and interact with eachother, and may even leave your party if they don't agree with your decisions and on extreme cases even attack you, it was lot's of fun, but requires lot's of reading as they're dialogue heavy and have no voice over
People say I don't respect Catgirls. I deny that.
You know how much profit I make off selling them?!!? Just harvest them right off the Clone Vine! Don't even gotta put a personality or intelligence into these and they sell like hotcakes!!
But then The Law gets involved and say I have to have some semblence of humane treatment or I have to restrict the sell of them. Apparently hoisting the lot of them into burlap bags to dump on doorsteps in general mail risks me losing my license to sell sentient entities! Man, its unfair...
MEWSACK MAKE ME LOSE CONTROL!!!
Why Hullo yes, I am quite Mad.
Oh, I have a FE-ver!
Yeh, I HAVE a fe-ver!
When there's somethin' wierd, cloggin' up my nose, throat n' mouth!
When there's something invisable clog dancin' through my head!
What I gonna do?!!?
*Freezes still with smile on face and still fingergunning, then slowly tilts over and falls to floor*
Cuz I has a feever
Cuz I has a feever~
It never struck me that worked both ways.
Anti-Heros are commonly known. But Antivillains? I never knew that was an archetype for a sympathetic villain. Still evil, of course, but not too evil that you can't understand their goals and sympathize.
I do suppose there's a distinct line of agreeable badness. Too easily villains can be so evil that you would feel that even if you did have any other protagonist hero, it wouldn't matter to the villain that just wants to set everything on fire.
... Even if Fire is a pretty good goal imo.
Just ocurred to me that Dr. Doofensmirtz technically counts as a "Disney Villain."
Also occured to me that he's basically what you would get if Ditzy-Doo "Derpy" Hooves tried to be the series antagonist.
"Now! Jingles the Plushie Spider Toy! You shall face my wraaath! As soon as I fire this machine upon you! I don't know what it does, but the fact that I can plug it in and it actually holds power in it is such a miracle that I just have to, and you better appreciate that,Jingles."
I'm surprised no one's done a parody of Moana's Shiny with a Dragon.
Like, adventurers get called that there's this big dragon smashing into every bank & vault. There's just this dragon that cares less about murdering others so much as just grabbing every gold and artifact he can so he can just swim in his hoard! That he doesn't so much fight you as claw your armor, weapons or anything you have that's metal or gemmed off.
I can just see he whipping his wings out to pelt the party with a shower of gold coins, then charging at them for "stealing his gold" when he threw it at them.
"I was a drab little whelp once. Now I know I can be happy as a Kobold, because i'm Gorgeous!"
"Adventurers are dumb, dumb, dumb. Here they come; to the brightest thing that glitters.Beginners. Huh, dinners.
I love free food. And to me, you look like free food..."
@ShadOBabe Smaug has never been happy.
Gosh, I could go on for ages about Smaug. I don't think he was so much representative of Greed as Pride. He was pretty much the dragon version of Scrooge. I think, in the book it was insinuated that he might have been in better shape had he not spent the past few decades stuck in a dark, abandoned castle and refusing to come out lest his hoard be left unattended. I think it was cannon he hadn't even eaten at all?
... Not that I'm... *cough* insinuating there's no way any human could have any advantage over a healthy, prepared dragon...
Edit: Hmmmm, TECHNICALLY... dragons are a hexapod, not a decapod.
*Your screen flickers on, unwillingly, to a podcast video with the title superimposed of Widdershins's Self-Debate Podcast.*
...See, Genetic Manipulation isn't all that bad! Sure, it's playing around with the laws of nature without control of results & often without regard of safety of others. But on the Other Hand, It enables adaptation of an individual by using the capabilities and technology granted by what was originally implementated by whatever higher powers that be!
And on the Third Hand, It's super cool and hilarious! Who wouldn't want to work a body better?!!? ...
*With face turned away from camera, pauses, then wanders off screen to where a loud shout is heard moments later.*
... VIAB! GET THE PHYSICAL RESTABILIZATION CREAM! IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN!!
It has come to my attention that "Buck", in several places of Ireland, means "To *uck."
Perhaps in trying to Pony-Censor the word, we haven't really made that much progress, my fellow bronies, lol!
And Shag, of course, was a very popular slang term back in the seventies if Austin Powers is anything to go by. Probably why the popular, long-fibered, dense carpeting is called that too. ...it tended to only be put down in the room intended for... well, having fun times.
Like them big heart-shaped beds or mirrored ceilings!...... Nobeing hire me to do interior decorating for them.
@Widdershins Oh? Idk honestly, I know it's still common here now,
hehe, maybe that's cause some dogs have a coat that's shaggy~
oh, welll maybe the rug had a feet kink hehe
haha, don't hire me either
I have noticed that you "Y'all."
You country? Reckon that's right about an odd ball of wax, that we "Creatively-Limbed Entities" tend to sound rather... eh, Southern? Hillbilly? I go with hillbilly/redneck.
Me, ah'm just a simple, southern, county boy Elritch Horror. I come from the far south of the Elder God pantheon. Right around that Nogg the Burrower guy who's sole magical qualities seem to be that he's fat and sits in a hole and grunts alot.
... I think i've lost track of what I was sayin' again.
Little Known Fact:
Beneath the Earth’s crust is a layer of rich chocolate. Under that is a dense hardpack of creamy nougat & a chewy, molten center!
I'm going to have to be blunt and state this straightforward as this may cost me some friendships.
I am very Anti-Ninja.
Look, I don't begrudge you for liking what you think ninjas are, but whatever context you likely know them from is a string of lies. They're cowards, cheaters and capricious Cuuuu- nope, can't think of another C word.
They don't have magic, they don't have tribes or clans or any loyalty at all. They're mercenaries, hired contract killers with a bloated sense of self importance because of some seeming sense of superior skill. Simply stated, such sly slobs are... are suck. Dang, had the alliteration going pretty boss there.
Now PIRATES I could go on for ages about!!!

You belay that talk @Kujamih. Or i'll have yeh plank!
Yes, comit the action of planking. I don't currently have one so you'll have to plank off the side of the boat so i can force others to walk off yeh to dunk in the ocean. It only makes sense.
It's a matter of tactics, I reckon. Way I see it, Ninjas go out of their way to be as brutal and rude as possible. It ain't enough to throw things at people, they gotta be sharp and spinny so they tear through more painfully. If you a ninja and your standing on some loose Tatami Mats, you whip that grass rug up and whap your opponent with it just to distract them while you... I dunno, kick 'em in the crotch. I dunno. They're underhanded and ruthless.
So are pirates. Now we pirates might load the cannon with shrapnel, handfuls of silverware or a good wheel of Hard Cheese to fire that out the cannon to blow a hole in the other ship... or whatever gets in our way. Just hit everything with whatever we've got. Real smash n' grab scavengers pirates be! They had to be! They're kind of on a limited area out at sea with little to no access to anything like reliable, healthy food or anythign calming. Think of it like being locked in your job's building for months on end with other smelly people you didn't exactly agree to be crewmates wit'. Have a lil' pirate sympathy. ...because the pirates certainly ain't fer yeh.
Ninjas are an Inventive Cruelty that makes it all the worse. When a Pirate mugs n' murders yeh, its because we're gonna die of scurvy if we don't get SOME resources soon! Pirates are an Animalistic Cruelty. Sure, pirates might be real nasty... but it might be years before we make landfall and get food, health, showers, company, comfort... not die every other week from the assorted diseases being ship-stuck gets yah.
Pirates be Punk. They kinda have to be smelly and patchy.
