    The Holy Night: From Luna's Eyes

    As night fell over Equestria, the flaming heart of love continued to burn brightly above the cold and dark cave where the six ponies who founded Equestria were sheltered. Luna could sense the restoration of love throughout the land, which made her tear up. "Indeed this is...a holy night..." She said to herself. The love emitted from the flaming heart brought forth a sweet angelic Melody. Then...Luna...the Princess of the night...felt it deep within her heart...a glorious song rising from the depths...filled with joy, love and peace... Oh Holy Night The stars are brightly shining It is the night that love hath conquered all Long lay the land In hate and disharmony Til they the three Found it all in their hearts A force burst forth in glory and power The magic rose from hearts of unity Sing! Sing it loud! Love has conquered all! Oh night, divine Oh night, when love burst forth Oh night divine! Oh night divine. Change shall it bring To bring the world together In harmony, every kind, form and beast Oh love come forth Teach us to drop all boundaries With open arms accept Others for who they are Hate will not win! With hearts full of purity For where there's friends Love lives abundantly! Hate has no place The heart cannot be quenched! The power of love! Oh the power, it conquers all The power, of love! It conquers all, it conquers all! Sing! Sing it loud! Love has conquered all! Oh night, divine Oh night, when love burst forth Oh night divine! Oh night divine. And it was that night...that holy night...when Luna stated, no matter the aches, no matter the pains...no matter how dark a heart is...love...the greatest...will...conquer all. Song used: Oh Holy Night
  5. It's the holidays! You know what that means? It means I've gotta come up with some kind of "Christmas Special" so I can get some kind of BOOST in popularity. But I digress, it's the holidays, a time to sit back, create some debt, worship the chimney-sweeping Coca-Cola dude, Santa Claus, and replay that "NINTENDO 64" meme I love so much. So let's sit back, relax, and step down to earth with our first-ever: REPUB'S 2016 HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF REPUB, KING OF REALLY BAD FANFICTION, EXTREMELY BELATED BLOG ENTRIES AND FORGETTING WHAT DAY IT IS. SERIOUSLY, IS IT LIKE . . . SUNDAY OR SOMETHING? DOES THAT MEAN SCHOOL IN THE MORNING? DARN. Monday, December 19st, 2016 We had an early Christmas, nothing more than a few presents under the tree. Reason we did it early was because the movers were coming the next morning and we had to be prepared. Now, usually I'm the last person to do so, but I really think I had the upper hand in all this. For the last three days, I'd been throwing all my old toys and such from the last 8 or 9 years (a lot of tears were shed), so my soul was prepared for anything (about 5 huge garbage bags full of junk). Unfortunately, I'm still a procrastinator and still had about two bags to take care off; I didn't sleep that night (partly because of the early Christmas) I will admit, I have a terrible gift of "The Careful Eye"; meaning, my holidays are always the most anti-climatic parts of the year. No matter how well you hide a gift, I; for some reason, always find it. So there was no surprise in my holiday gift list. I received a new laptop (AMD Quad-Core 1.6Ghz HP Notebook PC w/ 8GB RAM), the MLP Twilight Sparkle Train Conducter set (really cool, btw), and the Twilight Sparkle Holiday Ornament (Hallmark. It looks like it's one of the newer designs for the 2017 movie). Not a bad loadout for this year, so I'll take what I can get (that laptop was a very good payoff). I didn't sleep that night. No, not only because I was up all night downloading 3.2 GBs of the famed, "Blackjrxiii"'s work, but because I still had a lot to pack and throw away. Since then, I've been sleeping really late. I suppose you could call that the, "Last Sunrise I'll Ever See". TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20TH, 2016 Movers in Japan are no joke. For one, they take their jobs very seriously and will starve to finish their duties (unless it's lunchtime, which they'll ditch anything for). We in Japan like to call them the, "Ninja Movers" because if you don't specify every little thing you do not want packed, they'll take it away. If you turn your back, they'll pack your stuff in such an aggressively careful way, whatever you left will be compact in a neat little box the next time you look. I sat in the bathroom, the safest room of the whole house, and wasted away with erotic roleplay with some of the PonyCrush Community. (It got really saucy, so I'll leave it at that). Afterward, the house was pretty much empty with the exception of a few pieces of furniture later to be sold to some random people online. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21ST, 2016 Lazy day #1. We did nothing but sit around; I did a bit of late schoolwork (wow, RePub does school? What is this?) but I didn't get very far. I did, however, get to download my entire Steam library along with many other programs I needed from my "Le Brick" Windows XP computer. Y'know, I take back what I said about Windows 10. It's kinda cool once you remove: -Pre-installed programs (Includes HotalAdvisor. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT FOR?) -Cortana -OneDrive -Office 360 (If I have 2007 forever, why would I pay a subscription for something marginally better?) -Microsoft Edge -Custom Toolbars -Bing -Wallpapers made by Windows -Xbox Everywhere -Xbox Live -Apps on the Start-Menu -Apps in general -Pretty much everything added in Windows 10. Other than that ^, everything's pretty cool. Best console I've ever bought. (Did I tell you it has a Numpad?) THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22ND, 2016 I played CS:GO all day and scammed my friend for 9 extra skins (Plus one I got via random drop). I think it's hit me . . . the Skin Insanity. I had a conversation with another friend of mine (wow, RePub has friends?!? What is THIS?!?) about Stage Definition for many of the Skin Insanity symptoms. Here's what we came up with: Stage 1 - Want it, need it. Stage 2 - Spending all your money in CS:GO Stage 3 - Attempted Thievery Stage 4 - Scam your friends and Family Stage 5 - Investing every dying cent into that rare pair of Gloves (or knife) Yeah, Stage 4 is hitting pretty hard, but I think it's been dying down. Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta shoot 600 more bots in training ('cause I suck real bad) Oh, and I think this was the day I wrote about the MLP Gameloft game. Uh . . . yeah . . . something like that. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23RD, 2016 We donated a lot of extra crap during this day; but that night, I had the honor of viewing the Assassin's Creed Movie in theater (3D, but I recommend 2D because of a lot of action). Without spoilers, it's not bad (which is a first for a video game movie). I think it needs a lot of work; there are a lot of scenes that'll cut from the middle of a conversation to look at some random plant, but that's all good when you look at it as a whole. It's got some trippy parkour (which is expected), but I think the underline message is to create a withstanding example for future video-game based movies. And with that goal in mind, I believe it succeeded. Let's hope FNAF doesn't screw it up. (Oh, I saw Rogue One a week earlier; I'll write a review on that whenever I get the time) SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24TH, 2016 Technically, this was Christmas Eve, but we didn't have anything to give so we went out for the day. It was more of a family day, so it's not much to talk about. My mother was on her usual quest to find the "perfect photo", so that left me and my father out to linger. Earlier that day, however, we had to find our little bird, Kiwi, a new home. He didn't make many appearances in this blog, but he's in the thumbnail for the entry, "HOW 2 SNORT WASABI (Part 1)". RIP Kiwi, gud burd. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2016 (Wow, that title really trumps yesterday) It's Christmas and I awoke to Windows 10 updates that've been collecting over the past week! Thank you, Microsoft for a present more forgetful than my grandmother's socks: Three hours of waiting! Now, there's a tradition here in Japan. When that holiday where you see Americans dressing up in reds and hanging lights over their door comes around, you better call KFC for a reservation. "Why?" You ask. Well, I'll tell you. When Christmas rolls around, every single Japanese person in this country runs to their nearest KFC (potentially a mile away) to collect their holiday chicken. It's true! They'll run across the island to pick up their holiday tradition of taking in the Coronal's moist chicken with the least amount of time between bites. My mother decided to jump on the band wagon this year and pushed us all out the door (and across the island) to pick up the golden-fried legs of an Ancient Japanese tradition. When we arrived, we half expected a line to be waiting outside the feeble red and white building. Much to our surprise, no one was there except two petite Japanese women; they were no older than 20. My mother tried to go inside, but the two ladies told us they were closed for the holidays and instead offered us a tiny box of $10 chicken legs. From the corner of her eye, however, a large family, no smaller than six or seven persons, barged out from the KFC with huge, black drums of chicken. My mother was furious and demanded to know why they were closed and what happened to all that chicken; I stared at the feeble box of second-rate food. The lady backed off, trying to explain that those customers had paid for a reservation one month in advance. So while we were stuck in the cold with our poor-man's turkey, everyone else was living it up with their enormous barrels of exclusive KFC. We had to settle with the low-rate 10 dollar chicken, splitting a single box between the three of us. --- We're almost at 5,000 Views, so I'll make my thank-you speech here for the holidays: Thank you all for sticking with us throughout the year! It's been quite an adventure writing these, so I sincerely hope that my disparity has given all of you a few laughs! Since coming here, I certainly hope I've made a good impression on the many of you, even if few of my conversations were a bit aggressive (I've got an inbox full of take-down notices ). We're still working on big projects and I hope this entry can make up for all of the ones I missed. I remember writing my first entry as some sort of complaint/rant about BronyMate (my, how short those entries were back then) and somehow they evolved! Now we're at 5000 Views by strangers who I don't even know! I honestly didn't think people read my work (they probably don't; it's probably me just refreshing the page a hundred times ). My, how we've all grown. Yes, I've run into a few dry patches from here to there, but life goes on and there's always new things to talk about. I know there's still a long way to go, but I hope this blog continues to grow and make its mark upon these forums; that's my only Christmas wish. Thank you all, and I'll see you in the next post, -RealityPublishing Discord: https://discord.gg/6fNjXFq FiMFiction: http://www.fimfiction.net/user/RealityPublishing DeviantArt: http://realityc.deviantart.com/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyxI6DWe4sNYzsJxu2Sid2g "Special thanks to everyone in the Brony Fandom.

    Yet to Come

    So, I recently watched the Hearth's Warming Tail, and I truly loved it, so I decided to draw the Ghost of Future, Luna of course. I hope you guys like it ;u; If someone asks, why the bat wings: I think it fits her more in this situation, since she's acting like the Grim Reaper, and so pegasus wings for me won't fit on her role.
  9. So, looking back on the hearts warming episode that pretty much sums up the origins of Equestria did anyone feel like the fire of friendship had something to do with the origin of the elements of harmony? They do act quite the same, both being used to take down evil forces. Fire of Friendship being the windigos and the elements of harmony being all the villians the mane 6 has fighted. (Except Chrysalis, who managed to dodge a bullet). Maybe the location that was depicted in the hearts warming special where the fire of friendship formed is where exactly the tree of harmony started growing. Where do we see the tree of harmony, in a cave. Where do the tribes go in the hearts warming story? A cave. Coincidence? Potentially, the fire of friendship might have been the seed for the tree of harmony Thoughts?
  10. OK, sorry I'm a bit late to the party everypony, I just needed to absorb and process how amazing that episode was. Welcome back to another edition of "Batbrony Reviews". Today's episode is what I would describe as quintessential MLP; something that captured everything we love about the show to begin with while also doing something new (surprisingly considering this holiday, and the story they recycled, are both very well-established). It also highlighted what I love about Starlight's addition to the main cast this season, namely the fact that her presence gives them the opportunity to retread old stories or themes while making them still seem fresh and new since, obviously, she has not participated in most of the Mane 6's adventures in the past and still has a lot to learn about friendship. Without further ado, let's dive into "A Hearth's Warming Tale". So let's get this out of the way first: the only bad thing about this episode, the single worst thing about it, is the fact that it released in the middle of May. That's about as hilarious and ridiculous timing for a Christmas-themed episode as you can get, and it's completely unseasonal in every sense of the word. It's not a big deal in the slightest, it's just funny is all. Hee hee, pissed off Starlight Glimmer pleases me That out of the way, let's begin. So the story is essentially MLP's take on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" with some minor elements of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" thrown in there. It's Hearth's Warming Eve (yet again, man this show is getting inconsistent with the seasons, I cannot keep track of how they work in Equestria at this point), and everypony in Ponyville is loving it. Everypony, that is, except Starlight Glimmer. Turns out she's grown to not see the big deal in Hearth's Warming. She doesn't think most ponies care about its origins and that the stuff they really care about is superficial, so to fix that, Twilight sets out to tell her her favorite Hearth's Warming story, "A Hearth's Warming Tale". We've seen this setup for Christmas episodes in A LOT of shows, but as so often happens in MLP with similar setups like this, what made this stand out was how fantastically everything was executed. First and foremost, the fact that Twilight approaches this problem by reading Starlight a story is perfect for her! The show likes to remind us a lot that Twilight is an egghead, but usually for jokes or just to begin solving problems. An entire episode is rarely covered by her love of reading, so it's nice to see her channeling her bookishness so positively throughout an entire episode. The other way it surpasses other shows that have done a similar setup before is how it conveys the themes. There's a lot of parallels you can draw between Starlight's concern that ponies don't really care about the origins of Hearth's Warming and just stuff like presents and parties instead and both Christmas media and people in real life who fear that it's just a superficial, materialistic holiday these days where people don't really care about the more religious aspects of it. A lot of Christmas media take this approach, but the difference is what conclusion they come to and how they get there. In some cases you have people try to get people to abandon the materialistic aspects altogether and wholesale go back to the spiritual roots; it's rare, but sometimes happens, and those can be done well, but oftentimes aren't. The best example of this I can think of is "A Charlie Brown Christmas," which almost entirely foregoes any materialistic aspects of the holiday in favor for a very somber message. More commonly you have the compromise approach; someone tries to show how the materialistic and spiritual sides of the holiday can complement each other and are both equally important. This can be executed very well, or horribly. An example of doing it well would probably be "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"; conversely, a horrible way to do it is in Kirk Cameron's wretched and dreadful "Saving Christmas". What makes this stand out is that it's super rare that a 22 minute television episode could cover these themes as well as MLP does here. In an episode which includes setup and a conclusion before the actual meat of the episode, we get a wonderful message about how presents, parties, and celebrations with friends and family can, when approached correctly, embody as much of the spirit of a Christmas-like holiday as understanding its roots and celebrating those as well. Neither aspect is thrown under the bus; Hearth's Warming's origins are just as important as what holiday it has become, so long as they're about the celebration first and foremost. The celebration of the holiday is what's most important, embodying all the good of where it comes from and what it's led to. This is as nuanced a message as a full-length Christmas movie could be which convinces an audience that the good to be found in giving presents at Christmas is just as much what Christmas is about as celebrating the birth of Christ, as long as both come from the same place. It also works perfectly for MLP's setting considering friendship and community, we know by this point, are quite possibly the most central aspect of the most powerful magic in Equestria. Overall, it was just a wonderful handling of tried and true themes, made all the more impressive by the short amount of time they had to cover them all, and MLP writing at its best. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, these sets are GORGEOUS!!! A huge part of how they were able to execute this episode and deliver its message so well was the fact that it was a musical episode, and a delightful one at that. First of all, it's about time we got a musical Hearth's Warming Eve episode, not just with one song thrown in at the end. All of the songs did a great job of telling the story, capturing the spirit of the holiday, and just bringing the episode to life. This is Daniel Ingram at his best, and my goodness it was delightful to see him get to make music for a holiday episode finally. It also helps that they chose some of the characters with the best singing voices to carry these songs. The opening ensemble in Ponyville was fantastic, Starlight Glimmer's Snowfall Frost had yet another great villain song, Ashleigh Ball proved yet again (in my personal favorite song of the episode) that Applejack has possibly the most underrated, gorgeous singing voice on the show in her delightfully simple and nostalgia-inducing number as the Spirit of Hearth's Warming Past, Pinkie had a surprisingly touching but still incredibly bouncy number as the Spirit of Hearth's Warming Presents (HA), and Luna came out of bucking nowhere as the Spirit of Hearth's Warmings Yet to Come and, in her first number since "You'll Play Your Part" since Season 4 (and first solo ever) absolutely KILLED IT!!! Finally, the episode ended on a lovely ensemble with all the ponies celebrating. Through and through, each number was delightful and thematically seemed to cover different aspects of the holiday season, making for an excellent way to convey the episode's message and themes. The tunes themselves did not just tell the story, they told the themes, and that's quite impressive if you ask me. By far one of the most impressive musical achievements on the show in some time, I loved every minute of the music in this episode and once again have to tip my cap to the always phenomenal Daniel Ingram on an incredible job well-done. I was particularly fond of this number, but they were all phenomenal in their own ways Dang, Luna got HUGE! You been working out girl? Besides those two big points, there's not too much more to cover. It was "A Christmas Carol" MLP-style, so no reason to go over the story really, they just updated it in a few ways for the purposes of the setting. The fact that main characters yet again assumed the roles of these story characters was a nice callback to the first Hearth's Warming episode where they staged the pageant in Canterlot together. Twilight was adorable as she told the story, especially when it was suggested that she was actually singing the song numbers as she read. I would have liked to see a bit more of Starlight's reactions as the story went on, but that's forgivable considering they could only fit so much into one episode. The animation was probably the most gorgeous we've ever had for a Hearth's Warming episode; we've never seen Ponyville celebrating it, and it did not disappoint, the whole town and Twilight's castle simply came to life entirely as they should for this celebration, not to mention the animators also got to play around with lovely 19th century Victorian-style animation for the "A Hearth's Warming Tale" setting in old Canterlot and other surrounding towns. That Snape-pony was kind of hilarious (seriously, who else could they possibly be referencing with that guy?), and I seriously couldn't get enough of that older setting, especially the outfits! Holy cheese, those outfits were amazing!!! My personal favorite was Applejack's and Rarity's, and for the former that's quite a testament to how great the design and animation were considering AJ was pretty much one color palette in her whole design. It just had this simple elegance to it as so many other dresses AJ has worn have had, and showed once again why I adore little things like that with her character when they just tweak her ever so slightly and have her step outside of her comfort zone and adorn things she normally wouldn't. Get rekt, m8 Finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the background ponies. In the both the present and story-setting we got to see some of our favorite familiar faces from around Ponyville (I was especially pleased to see Blossomforth and Cloud Kicker get some nice screen time, those two sometimes get overlooked), and it was loads of fun getting to see all of Ponyville celebrating the holiday. My personal favorite of course (because I'm me) was Derpy becoming the best Hearth's Warming Eve star EVER, but nearly all of the major background ponies got some sort of fun appearance, and you can tell that the animators had a lot of fun playing around with them on this one. Overall, as I said earlier, this was about as quintessential MLP as we can get: it had a great message, story, pacing, animation, music, humor, and just great everything in general. It's possibly my favorite Hearth's Warming episode they've done to date, though I'll have to think about that carefully considering the Season 2 one is pretty darn amazing in its own right. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out as soon as you can; as for me, I can't wait to see it a second time as soon as possible. That's all I got for ya'll today, everypony. Until next week, this is Batbrony signing out. I'm off! *cue dramatic exit* I think we can all agree that best Hearth's Warming Tree Star was the best part of this episode
  11. We all know about this continuity error from Hearths Warming Eve. But I think I may have found a bit of logic into why this may have happened in show cannon. What if when they said "before the time of Celestia & Luna" they were only referring to their reign. We don't know how old the sisters truly are, but they were probably around before the conflict between the 3 tribes, as they were old enough to fight Discord & Sombra shortly after the events. What if the tribes knew about the sisters in a spiritual sense? What if the alicorns were revered as gods by all three tribes? This flag could've been designed as something the tribes all had common knowledge of, and therefore, a common faith in. What do you think?

    I Made a Greeting Card

    Thought I should show you guys since I used some of your artwork. I'm not good at this kind of stuff and I had a little trouble with the formatting, hence the white bar on the inside left but the recipients liked it so that's all that matters.
  15. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. A Hearth's Warming Carol on FanFiction.net. I've already submitted it to Equestria Daily and have high hopes for its resultant peruse by their editors. Equestria Daily said it was good but thought that their audience would find the Victorian english off-putting. Humbug.
