  1. Sorry I haven't been around. Haven't been feeling well... 
     The medication hasn't been sitting well with me and all the sick days are making me tread thin ice at work.

     Blech. :unsure:

  2. Have you seen the new Gabby ponimoticon?!!? Squee! :squee:

     Griffon hugs are best! So soft n' cute! Best BirdyBab!

  3. Look, I wanna get this off my proverbial chest.

     We finally have a pure Flying-type pokemon now! Up until now, the unspoken logic was "Well, birds are common animals so their 'Normal', and after all, they're not technically flying all the time, so..." Like, sure, PURE flying would have to never touch ground, like a cloud or elemental or something!

      ...and we get Corvisquire. It's just a blue jay. A common bird. As if we didn't need to see Normal/Flying be the most common dual typing in existence. It's as if the Pokémon design company is finally takign the gall and admitting they didn't need to... and they're basically just been #$%(#ing with us this entire time.

     Sigh... eight generations, a quarter century, nearly a thousand pokemon now... and this is what they do with their hidden Ace up their sleeve...

    1. JingLBabe

      JingLBabe

      Pretty sure Corvisquire is a raven Pokémon. Blue jays are exclusive to the United States, but Galar is the UK.

      Oh! Well its a blue crow then! I musta got confused! (Blackbird to crow to raven makes so much sense though!)

      I do find Corviknight pretty ugly tho, too much Steel.

      To be fair, bright yellow mice do not exist either. But at least crows and ravens have dark blue highlights in their feathers. XD

      Did you also get an email from a Nigerian prince asking for a sponsor? 

      as soon as I send him my social security number and driver’s license, I should see a 400% return on my $9000 investment. So excited!

  6. I just finished a book (section, its a collection of a series) where they defeated the very concept of Death & Entropy itself. Then they play it off that the concept/being is outside of time so the universe can keep working the way it does. And there’s several more books to go!

     Heady.

       I’m so making a full dragon team!... well, okay, big dinos but still! Lol! You get your Electric Dragon Dracozolt yet?!

       Already finished the game & i’m late sixties. Isn’t Dragapult adorable!??! It’s so a living racecar!!

  9. Do you know of Doctor Horrible's Singalong Blog?

     They had a villain in there that was just a literal horse. But evil, so evil he led the Evil League of Evil. Admittedly, his name was "Bad Horse" but I have the song stuck in my head with a parody of your name in place. I suppose *cough* it would be uncouth of me to chant it about the forums?

     Your name is just so simple but awesome! You have a fanclub I can join?!!?

    1. Dark Horse

      Dark Horse

      Oh, believe me, you are not the first to make the comparison with that Singalong. I'm well familiar with it by now. :dash:

      It's either that, or the Katy Perry song. :yeahno:

      Funny enough, I actually decided on the name originally based on the term "Dark Horse"; as in a little-known person whom unexpectedly rises to prominence. Wasn't so much thinking of a literal Horse, but the appropriate pun sort of stuck and I've rolled with it since then.

      But thank you very much~ I'm afraid I don't really have an official Fan Club as such on the forum. I mostly appear where I'm needed and do some Horsing around.

      You're more than welcome to add to it, however! :mlp_yeehaa:

    2. Widdershins

      Widdershins

      Oh, I'm more familiar with the old slang phrase myself. Usually in theater, I believe? Katy Perry's song was mostly gibberish anyhow.

      *Cue tinkly Western Saloon Piano music*

      Dark Horse, Dark Horse! He's monitoring all the site!

       You'll best mind your P's & Q"s or you'll be in such a fight!

      Dark Horse, Dark Horse!  You'll see how much he can care

       for when you disobey him, He'll make you his Mare!~

       

       ...What? That last line is both important & comedy gold! I see nothing lewd at all!

      Does this look like the face of a Lewder?

  10. I do agree with your stance on Rainbow Dash having potential confidence issues, Soren. I've seen how fast her face changes and she's got about as wild and cartoonish a range of emotion as Pinkie Pie does. It's been my headcannon she pushes herself too hard for goals she can't admit are unreachable. A sort of self-forced extrovert, I daresay. Think I've got a bit of a reason she may be like that too.

    1. Soren Peregrine

      Soren Peregrine

      @Widdershins Well, that seems a bit more coherent and easily understandable compared to how I put it. I do think she does have a lot more depth to her character than people may think. Also, some writers for certain episodes seem to get the wrong impression of how she is supposed to be written, and they get her all wrong. When one understands her character and writes her well, she is a very interesting character indeed. I believe that above all, however, despite these things that she seems to struggle with, she stays loyal to her friends, and no matter how much she messes up, her heart is in the right place, and that is what matters most.

    2. Widdershins

      Widdershins

      That's somewhat my headcannon: That her parents were the wrong kind of positive & supportive. She never had to try hard to gain their gushing approval... so she's not sure of how to stop being competitive & Number One in everything she does. Everythings a race to Dash because it was for most of her life, to her parents, she never dipped below top ranking and now that she's on her own with nobody pouring on excessive praise like her parents did... she's over compensating for the blow in her confidence.

       The girl sneaks out side her fanclub to easedrop on conversations. A club put together from a filly who probably wouldn't have had the idea without urging from Dash herself. If that ain't desperate pleas to feed her own ego, I don' know what is!

      I saw how she hyperventilated into a freakout on that big show where she had to do the Double Rainboom on cue. If she had as much to back up her talk as she says (and she does at least fill out a great deal. I don't see many mares willing to kick a full grown dragon in the face!) she wouldn't overreact as much as she does. Only mare that cracks emotions faster is Pinkie, and that's likely because its her running gag!

      She's born of constant competition, and that ain't no way to live in my opinion. Think that's her character study and a hard path to write for her character. I'm not surprised she's been flanderized, just at the cartoonish extents it has been.

       I'd say she breaks up more than even Twilight; that's saying something! You don't see Twilight jumping to the conclusion that the only way is to personally wreck an entire factory!

  11. Okay, okay, got a good one for ya @Duality! Was originally gonna Status-Update it to you but the thought got too long! ...yes, I measure my thoughts before they're written down; don't question it, we've yet to get to my actual question! Okay! I want a point-by-point argument for Bio-logic! Basically, tell me if the following are biologically feasible to be found in Nature as we know it! (All specimens recreated from supposed once-live, extinct species.) And I must defend my precious, innocent, mutant children! Specimen One: Dracozolt is easy. Unmatched skin coloration, patterns and even size from one end of the body to the other? Mere child's play in the chaotic variation that Nature has provided! I could no doubt call up dozens of real life animals that have that! If I had the time and energy, that is. Specimen Three, (from the left to right, of course) Arctozolt: Simple a big bodied raptor, eh? No doubt capable! Even if one end of the body produces energy while the latter half is somehow devoid of thermal energy... but that disconnect in metabolism does go a long way in explaining its sluggish behavior that led to its extinction. And yes, those are flipper feet on a purely land animal. I see no qualms in lacking toes and such for land maneuverability, yes? Specimen Four, Arctovish: It's harder to explain its feasibility of operating as an organism... but it makes sense, I should say, for a fully aquatic creature. While I can't think of any examples of actual animals... having a head on upside-down surely isn't that bad of a hinderence to an animal, right...? One could, technically, claim that a creature would evolve as such to tear out the softer undersides of its aquatic prey, yes? And foremost the reason I posit this complex query... Specimen Two, Dracovish: ...uhm, Pokedex claims it only went extinct because it just was too efficient a predator. ...Never mind the fact that it can't breathe well. I don't THINK it specifies the fish head can ONLY breathe water... despite being a land reptile...Just because it APPEARS to have a head on the wrong end of a tail doesn't mean that its a malfunctioning homonculous. Can be merely argued that it only appears that way from its counter-conventional bodyform, right? It's stated, verbatim, that it "had trouble breathing" and it doesn't mean it somehow evolved to walk where it couldn't breathe? Just... *cough* too large of a body to fully respirate accurately, right? In short, how capable are these specimens of, well, "Staying alive of their own power?" I expect a full, four-part dissertation! /Pout
  12. It's only now that it's happened. As big as a pokemon fan I am, I've never had that moment where I wished this one species of pokemon was real. Given my favorites are an anthro fox with pyrokinesis and a murderous god-mutant... think most realities are fine without. 

     But I have fallen in absolute love with the Galarian Fossil Pokémon! They are MY kind of cute!

    cfd50fa58d70d4bea82a4c849e4f9a85.png.198a0bed313a202873e58f08e1ae9b80.png83dabb97e932fda40bd9c678b7be38b3.jpg.4ae1d5523a4780cc5161acc841bee3fc.jpg

     I balk at talk of them being against the rules of nature! Those fiddly, diddly widdle heads with happy lil' beaks! Those chunky bodies! Happy, smiling beaks filled with razor sharp teeth of friendliness! 

     They are my innocent, precious, mutant children!

     DO expect incoming screenshots of my squawky children!

      But to answer your question, @Stone Cold Steve Tuna

       Yes. He's on adventures with this kid simply named.... sigh... "Go."

       Ass & Go get to ride all over on a Lugia. Y'know. That giant, psychic birdwhale. That's just decided to be a ferry for these two shmucks for adventure.

    4. Stone Cold Steve Tuna

      Stone Cold Steve Tuna

      I much prefer calling him Ash Hole to anything else.

       I am still waiting for his rematch with that other kid with the metapod. I want to see another metapod vs metapod battle.

  14. Have I mentioned I currently have two kittens now too? Got one in my lap right now as I type this! Dunno where the notion that cats were calm, aloof & distant. Sure, they're calmer than dogs, but they really do fit more along the lines of "High-Strung!"
  15. @Catpone Cerberus Drawn, not Drew. Widdershins began in a poorly accented, educated tone. A small younger kitten began crawling up his side out of dangerous curiosity mistaking the tall, wobbly draconequus as a clawing post. Its tiny claws hooking into his oblivious flesh, the kitten finds it easier to climb once it reaches Widdershins's shaggy mane. Unaware of the kitten, he/it continues his pretentious babble. The latter intones that it was done by a singular being. I started the spell, that brought the item, that had the writing already on it. Simply a state of being, hmm? One does not ask who brought the fish to the sea, yes?!!? Some few yards away and unnoticed as well, a live fish drops out of the air and flops around for a bit. As perhaps an unintentional visual aid. |||||||||||\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\|||||||||||| @Sekel "You'd...defend me?..." Kaltrop trails off, unintentionally batting his eyes away and back to Dawn Streak. "...Not that I need it, of course. But that's awfully brave of you to say. Dragony, even. ...heh." The young drake places his right claw closer to her, tentatively testing if it would be okay to give a reassuring pat to the mare.
  16. Oh, definitely @Johnny1226! Since he's opened the summoning portal to my Madness & cuddles! @AngelDust Aww, such a compliment to be brought up here, ya little Italian Sorbet! (...or whatever fancy pronunciations there are of that one dessert...)
  17. Happy Thanksgiving!

     I'm thankful for food! Thankful I can prepare it in a quiet moment to myself, thankful I can afford as such & thankful I have others to share the eating experience with!

     Yesterday, throat went out on me and I've been sick, my sleep schedule way out of whack...
     Serious doubt as to how I can manage anything in my life, my health, my future...

      Well,  it's like.... I don't communicate well, there's a language barrier so... it's likely not mucha fuss. Hopefully. I can't go into detail, they told me not to. Maybe gossip got around and wires done got crossed, is all.

      As easy as I cry, I doubt any being could look at me and suppose the worse.

      I hope that’s all it was too. You shouldn’t have to worry about someone saying harassment when you ask them out.

  24. @Sekel "Hmph." Kaltrop pouted, laying down in agreement towards Dawn with his snout pointed askew of the mare. "I'm a dwagun, I know how to take care of myself." ~~~ @Catpone Cerberus With a perfunctory expression, Widdershins caps a classroom marker. Drew what? Out of the draconequus's line of sight, the other end of the capped pen squirts out copious ink and is immediately useless. I only applied visual aids. Not drew anything, You're getting your actions muddled.
  25. *sound of grinding teeth increasing from the distance until you hear a loud crack*

     Had a... GREAT DAY in the land of GALAR TODAY. NO. REALLY.

     I fell in love with Opal, the new Fairy Pokémon Gym Leader there. She ran a gym exactly how I would, used pokemon and tactics like I would, even had a pink obsession, theatrics and quotes like I've always wanted! "You are severely lacking in Pink. ...Let us GIVE YOU SOME!!" "Oh, my tea just kicked in, and not in a good way." She even had this beautiful theme of being who you want to be, creative & expressive, no matter how strange you may fear you come across as!~

     And she said she was looking for somebody to take over for her as the face of the Fairy typing!!

     *Twitch*

      ...and she goes for another, younger guy. Just because he was wearing a pink parka.

     KNOW WHAT COLOR I'VE BEEN WEARING, NON-STOP?! THAT I WAS WEARING AS SHE WAS PASSING ME UP?!!?

     *Lunges at own throat, falling backwards and dramatically gasping*

       Aaaargh! Thud!

     It's so befitting. You know what the Fairy type is? That ex-girlfriend you had who was a wonderful, caring lover.... yet also a raving psychopath who tosses you aside the moment you keep her fun grounded!

     Guh. My dreams of a full Fairy team are dashed. I just can't now.

     I can't be a Fairy. I AIN'T GOT THA VENOM.

     

     Well designed, Game Freak. Well played.
