    Books Do you like reading?

    I love reading, and I read every day: when I'm on the bus on my way to work, during the lunch break, and if the book is really interesting I devote all the time I can to it. Right now I'm actually in the middle of two books at the same time. Recently I also gave audiobooks a try and really enjoyed listening to Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. So if you have poor reading comprehension, maybe consider trying the audio format.

    What is "canon"?

    I’ve always considered “canon” as something tiered: The show and the movie are “the main canon”: MLP FiM is self-evidently canon, and the movie has been explicitly referenced in it numerous times. Equestria Girls is officially canon (even though some people don’t like it), but skipping it won’t make any difference to understanding of the main series – at this point at least. Comics and books are “secondary canon”, as they explain “comics should be canon to the show, but the show is not obliged to be canon to the comics”, and thus the show can override anything that happened in them. The word of God Lauren Faust. Jim Miller said that they try to stay true to her original ideas and even headcanons. Generally accepted fanon: the show has already embraced so many fan theories (Derpy being a postmare, Doctor Whooves messing with time, Steven Magnet’s name, etc.) that they are basically nearly canon until proven otherwise. Although it is hard nowadays to understand which parts of fanon are “generally accepted”.

    What Was Your First Profile Pic?

    This: Yes, I still have it. I change the profile pic from time to time, but always come back to this one.

    General How "Pure" are you?

    Purity is overrated. Tried it, didn't like it.

    Do you like taking naps?

    Yes, but I'm a light sleeper - any noise or beam of light is enough to wake me up, so I rarely truly enjoy napping.

    Your favorite new characters from season 8?

    Although I like Autumn Blaze, I voted for Yona, because she's been in more episodes and hence brought me more joy overall. Also, Smolder really grew on me over the course of this season, but Yona was precious from the start.

    Are you glad to be a brony/pegasister?

    I can only be proud of my achievements, and just enjoying the show and being open about it isn't an achievement for me. So I can say that I'm glad to be a brony, but I don't see anything to be proud of here.

    Technology What do you have for a smartphone?

    I have an LG K10 K410. It's not bad, considering that I only use it as a phone and an alarm clock.

    Mega Thread What book are you reading?

    Finishing Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk. It's really what you'd expect form this author, although not as enjoyable as Fight Club. If you're underaged don't even google it. Started The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie. It was highly recommended to me as "one of the greatest fantasy books", but I can't tell if it's true yet - the beginning is quite slow.
  10. Turn on my PC, get up, perform the bathroom procedures, make a cup of tea, drink only half of it with one cookie, get dressed and go to the bus station (or browse the Internet if it's a day off). I didn't include "wake up" because sometimes it only happens on the road to work.
  11. Donuts. I know it may seem weird, but I just never got to try them.

    Music Songs You Can Listen To Forever

    There are at least two such songs for me. The first one is a bit haunting, and the second - just catchy:

    Music Music for the Halloween season

    This is going to be a weird mix, but still: Edvard Grieg - In The Hall Of Mountain King Kagamine Rin - Happy Halloween Budka Suflera - Bal wszystkich świętych (The ball of all saints) General Mumble - Goodbye, Holiday

    NightMare Night

    OK, I guess it's time to rewatch Luna Eclipsed and listen to this song: Have a great Nightmare Night, everyone!
  15. I need to be on the Internet to do my job, and most of my hobbies are related to the Internet as well. So, around 11 hours a day on average is my answer.
