It's not the whole "he stole my waifu" nonsense, but rather that as love interest go, he's is exceptionally bland. To illustrate the emptiness that is Flash's persona, let me point you towards the Save Flash Sentry Petition which seeks to have DHX make him a mane-stay of the show. Here are a few supporting quotes:
With the added love interest Twilight Sparkle will be even more relate-able than what she already is.
Just thought that Twilight deserves to be loved just like Princess Cadence.
A main male character with an important standing in the relationship of Twilight Sparkle THE PRINCESS ahem ahem would be a huge jump in the fandom, not to mention the show.
Note that amongst these people, the ones who want him to be on the show, none of them are saying that

When we rebooted Discorderly Conduct, any proceeds from the Patreon were going to her because she needs it far more than I do to pay her bills, and I do not have parents pressuring me ruthlessly about not having a "real" job. She actually just got a "real" job stocking shelves at WalMart because the Patreon was not enough to cover her expenses. Let that sink in.

The MLP Movie (Yahoo! Movies Article)News of the My Little Pony movie set for 2017 has set the fandom into hype mode. Not only does this mean we have a full theatrical release on the horizon, it also implies that the show will continue for at least another two years. Good stuff!The MLP Movie (Yahoo!

With this announcement comes commentary, and a fellow fan, Rozgar, pointed me towards a Yahoo! Movies article by one Gwynne Watkins. The piece is titled:
A ‘My Little Pony’ Movie Plea: Don’t Forget the Boys
Well now, that sounds intriguing. A plea to remember the male audience that has unexpectedly appeared for this show? Or perhaps a warning on behalf of the brothers dragged into the theater by mom, dad, and sis? What does Ms. Watkins have to say?

"They made, like, a jillion dollars last year, why isn't it the best looking game ever made?:
"I heard it uses the Quake engine, talk about outdated, why don't they move on to something new?"
"They have the money, why don't they go for something bigger?"

My thoughts on ShippingsA question arose on my profile as to some of my favorite shippings for the Mane 6. More specifically, Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Fluttershy. I thought why not just list it all so folks have a complete answer? Yet before I do, there are two things I want to make clear:My thoughts on Shippings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
None of this is "meant to be".
I've seen many fans across different fandoms insist that their favorite ship is the one true love and it's obvious the show will go down that route. Maybe it will, maybe it won't. For me, it's less a question of trying to guess the show's intent and more asking what I enjoy out of a romantic storyline. "Would this be fun to watch?" I really enjoy seeing a character challenged by a relationship and growing because of it. It's a rare treat as many romances in media are cookie-cutter and ultimately uninteresting. I am in no way saying that alternate shippings are wrong. I'm just saying what I find appealing.

Too SoonIn one of my recent comics I casually mentioned the shooting at The Dark Knight Rises premiere in Colorado. The comic wasn't about the shooting, nor was it making light of the shooting. However, some people weren't able to see past that and felt it was offensive and in poor taste.Too Soon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am really sorry that my comic offended anyone. It was never meant to trivialize the deaths of the victims of that event, nor was it trying to make fun of them. I was never suggesting or inferring that you should ignore the tragic event, nor trying to be dismissive of the event. I wasn't saying you shouldn't feel empathy, or even sadness over the event. And I especially wasn't trying to paint myself as being uncaring towards the victims.

I didn't authorize or accept this, so I don't really know how to feel about this.
One one hand it seems pretty cool that my art was used on a billboard.
But on the other hand (and most importantly) they used it without my permission.
I'd especially be pissed if someone else were making money off the artwork I made. But I don't know if that's what's happening.
It's from a movie theater in Wichita Falls, so I'm guessing they were making their own movie poster. And they decided to look for MLP art on Google images, then they stumbled onto my pictur
Fuck You Fresh. Just...Fuck You.You heard us, we know you heard us. You know we loved the Courtney/Gwen friendship, you spent a season putting them back together. Then you do this. You take all the good and development Courtney had, all of it, and just threw it away. Everything she and Gwen went through, just added up to nothing. You screwed over her character, again, just to make it easier for her to get voted off. Why her, exactly? What is it about her, that makes you pull out all the stops to make people not want to like her? Why is it she goes through more humiliating and dehumanizing shit than the villains of the season? Why do you make it no one will stay friends with her, when she had plenty in the first season? Why do you hate her? Why do you make her VA, who loves the character and says she deserves some good to happen in her life, act out all this shit that happens to her. Why? Why I ask you?Fuck You Fresh.

Photomanip: Working with TexturesWelcome!Photomanip: Working with Textures3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures are a critical part of so many photomanipulations, but they're not as easy to use as they appear. Below are some great examples of photomanipulations that, in my opinion, demonstrate excellent use of textures:
The goal of this article . . .
. . . is to serve as a resource for those of us who enjoy having textures be a predominant part of our photomanipulations and mixed media work so we can learn to use textures properly. Texture misuse or abuse can ruin an entire photomanipulation that otherwise might have been good. No matter how good we are at something, we can always grow to be better.

Oh god no.So, feel free to google "measles party" if you feel like killing your last shred of optimism for the human race.Oh god no.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hipster anti-vaccine parents are beginning to deliberately expose their own children to measles because they believe it's the "natural" way and "natural" is inherently a good thing.
Measles is one of the most torturous diseases a young child can endure. The fever gets high enough to cause brain damage. The pus-filled sores can spread to the interior of the body. It can cause permanent blindness and it can cause death.
This isn't media sensationalism or an urban legend; parents have long done the same thing with chicken pox. Now they think it's okay to do it with measles. This is nightmarish child abuse of the highest order. Any parent who would trick their child into contracting a dangerous contagion belongs behind bars, permanently, and shouldn't be allowed to interact with any child ever again.

It feels weird to have posted the last page in my A Princess' Tears comic. This has been a source of enjoyment, stress, frustration, and triumph for the better part of a year. I know I wasn't always speedy with the updates, yet I never forgot about the comic or its supporters.
Which raises the question of: what now?
Here are my immediate plans. First things first: go back to pages 1 and 2 and update Clutterstep's look, plus tweak a few pages for consistency.
Clutterstep is going to feature in two fan fictions I'm writing to follow after A Dodgy Business. After that, I will be starting a new comic about the accident-prone pony. One that features an expanded world and introduces some new characters I'm eager to show.
However, this comic will not be featured on this account. Since I created a Clutterstep group here on DeviantArt, :iconClutterstepping: I'm going to make it the m

I'm going to do my best to summarize my thoughts on Season 4 in a few specific areas. That being the case, I will not explain every factor or reason that something does or does not work for me. If you disagree with me or feel that I didn't offer enough explanation in a particular area, feel free to ask me about it in the comments, but keep in mind: This is just MY OPINION and should be taken with a grain of salt.
So how does Season 4 rate in relation to Seasons 1-3?
