Again, I am astoundedFirst off, I just want to say I never thought Past Sins would get as popular as it did. I just wrote a story I wanted to write, and when I first published it I hoped it was going to be as popular as Better Living, which was my most rated fic at the time.
So, I just want to say thank you to everyone that's made fan-art, fan-music, fan-anything for Past Sins and Nyx. You really do honor me with your time and energy. Even though all this attention has made some people despise the story, and by association me, I don't regret a moment of it. I'm happy I was able to present a story so many people like, and Past Sins itself has been a massive learning experience for me.
Now, to get to the real reason I'm making this post. There is another artist here on DA who is beginning and undertaking that ASTOUNDS me. It's something that the fans of the story should love, though I also fear some of the flames it will draw.
To put it simply, space-is-pretty-big is endeavoring to make Past S

Apparently Hasbro was pressuring WeLoveFine to remove or rename all merchandise with that character, and iTunes pulled the episode where she had a speaking role from their online store.
I've been accused of starting a petition that I've never even heard of in order to make this happen.
I'm very flattered, but bronies are giving me WAY too much credit for all this. (If only I had that sort of power to manipulate a giant corporation like Hasbro.) I'm not the only, or even the most active person speaking up about the problematic elements with the character. I just happen to be a very high-profile fan who has mentioned it a few times.
Here are some posts by other folks explaining why it's an issue:

Not too long ago I got a commission request (not going to say any names) from someone asking me if I could draw a pic of 2 MLP characters in human form, one of them UNDERAGE, doing.........stuff to each other that I do not approve of. Obviously I had to tell this person I won't draw that kind of crap and asked them if they read my rules which they clearly hadn't. They said sorry and then asked if I could do a nude anthro or something. Not quite as extreme but the fact that they asked for that earlier thing was enough for me to just not want anything to do with this person. I also checked their gallery and they don't have any art of their own although they've reuploaded pieces that they commissioned from other artists. I was given plenty of warning signs that this person could be suspi

My thoughts on Season 3 of MLP...Well, as I had stated in my 'Honest Words' comic back in 2012 http://cartuneslover16.deviantart.com/art/Honest-Words-336166368 I promised to watch Season 3 AFTER it was completed on TV.

So I gave every episode a chance, and before anyone takes reminder of my 'passive-aggressive' nature in regards to most of the facets in the show itself, let me tell in one, simple word in regards to Season 3:
Yeah, that's right, a major percentage of the season really blew me away. Okay, I will be honest, the first two episodes weren't really my cup of tea but a majority think so as well.
Really, King Sombra doesn't earn a medal for 'personality', but he does astonish the villains' category, as his evilness and sought for Equestrian conquest proves his character very vital for 'fresh' of MLP. I only wished he spoke more instead of sounding like a car with a bad engine.
But the introduction of the Crystal Kingdom gives us more Equestrian interests

Twilight cursed herself for falling asleep during her book, she hadn't got very far before sleep had overtaken her, but now as the morning sun filtered into her bedroom she smiled as the thought of continuing dawned as well. With the book balancing on her back she went into the kitchen. She grabbed her cereal from the cupboards, pouring a large bowl of 'Oat-hey Clusters' and adding some milk she propped the book open in front of her and began to read, using her magic to levitate a spoon into the bowl.
Princess Luna explained to me how I had been comatose for a very long time and how she and her sister Celestia had used their combined magic to keep me heaalthy without needing to eat. Even so, the years oof having my body rely on only magic to continue living had taken a heavy toll on me. She helped me back into her bed and used her magic to pick up a bowl of soup of the tray she'd brought in. "Here, this soup should make your belly pretty happy." It was indeed delicious, a simple bro

That's right, the holidays are here and I've decided to open shop.
However, please keep in mind not to ATTACK my page with so many request ideas. I've decided that it will be one request per person.
So just state your request on this journal so I know where to turn to mark things off my list.
Now that I've been clear about that, two very important things are about to occur in a few weeks:

As for my opinion? She's fine. We loved her before she was a plot point in The Last Roundup, and we still will. As for her voice, I was perfectly happy with the voice because it was Tabitha St. Germain, the voice of Rarity. I thought it was perfectly fine. This, again, is my opinion so do take it with a grain of salt. As for the new voice, I have no real issue with it.
But let me be quick and simple here: We love Derpy. Hasbro knows this, and that is why we got her more and more in episodes. No matter what happens, she is a huge part of the fandom and we won't let her be forgotten so simply. Just carry on and pony on. And remember
An apology...I know my current picture has upset a few good people and raised a lot of questions about my well-being in regards to MLP FIM and other very popular shows.An apology...1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
Honestly, I'm starting to question myself.
Time and time again I've said I'm not a brony but just a fan...yet for some time now I have made constant remarks in comparing some characters to those of others shows, particularly Robot and Monster.
I guess the whole reason I've been pointing out the negative aspects of MLP FIM is because many consider it such a 'perfect' show and then comes comparing it to others and when has there ever been a RANT video for this show?
But mostly why I've said what I've said in my recent summaries since December 2012 is mostly in hopes that more people, especially the MLP fans, will see the POSITIVE of the shows I want they see, give a chance like the had done when MLP first arrived.
To those who think I have an issue, better yet a chip on my shoulder...to an extent, you are correct.
