My thoughts on the MLP Season 3 finale...First of all, I would like to say congrats to Daniel Ingram for doing a swell job making a musical episode. I don't think I've ever seen this many songs in such a short amount of TV before, and the sheer variety of tunes was quite a treat for the ears. I also loved all the continuity callbacks, like Pinkamena, Spike's 7 hour long bubble bath, etc. The episode was definitely full of emotion, and it definitely affected me in a big way.My thoughts on the MLP Season 3 finale...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Having said that, not all the emotion I felt was good. The heartwarmingness of seeing Twilight bring her friends back to their real destinies quickly gave way to dread when I saw her teleported to an ethereal plane with Princess Celestia who congratulates her, and I instantly started having flashbacks of the final episode of Neon Genesis Evangelion. What followed kind of left me feeling empty, and even though I knew which emotional buttons the episode was supposed to be pushing, its attempts fell flat on me, and left me instead feeling worried.
Disqordilicious.So... wow... My inbox has been exploding all week. I've been completely floored by the response to my little graphic story about Disqord.Disqordilicious.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've gotten so many wonderful, beautiful, comments! I read them all, even if I do not respond to each one. I am so moved that so many people found my little story so interesting! Really, it makes me all glowy to know that I was able to hit the artistic nail on the head. Nothing is more satisfying to an artist than knowing that their work "got to people".
Many of you understood exactly what I was aiming for, and that makes me happiest of all!
Knowing that I was able to communicate my artistic vision (with a fan comic!) feels so triumphant. As I posted each page, I would read the comments and keep them in mind when painting the next page... I would put extra effort into emphasizing certain points and ideas of mine to help better communicate them. Really, all of your comments truly helped me to hone my idea and inspire me to keep up with the work. So th

Her popularity spread throughout the internet and then, she later became canon and now-
She's got a lot to say. Now she speaks.

Princess Luna nervously paces about her study, awaiting news of the recent intruder. Every now and then, she takes a quill from the inkwell on her table, shakes her head, and drops it back into the well.
The silence is broken by a stern looking pony, who simply walks into the room and speaks.
:iconharmonythroughanime: - Princess! A report!
:iconprincesslunaplz: - Is it about the scout?
:iconharmonythroughanime: - Yes, Princess. Despite our best efforts, the scout slipped through our hooves. He's a tricky one.
:iconprincesslunaplz: - I...see.
:iconharmonythroughanime: - What's more important is what we saw when we called off the chase. There were ponies, ponies everywhere.
The pony seems to break her focus and look around nervously, as if expecting an attack at at any moment. A green pony sidesteps from behind her, and clears his throat.
:icongrimreap2: - What she means, Princess, is that we saw large groups of armored ponies marching from the gate

3 Pit Bulls sentenced to death...For being attacked by someone else's loose dog.3 Pit Bulls sentenced to death3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Full story: http://www.examiner.com/article/judge-sentences-three-pit-bulls-to-death-a-discriminatory-proceeding
Story summary if you don't want to click the link:
Austin Texas, Three pit bulls have been sentenced by a judge to be euthanized after they were the victims of a vicious dog attack.
Chris Grant the owner of the pit bulls had been training his dogs, Leo, Dawn and Gorgo in a parking lot earlier this month, the dogs secured to the back of his SUV, when a man with his dog running loose, entered the same parking lot. The loose dog spotted Grant's dogs and charged.
"The owner of the dog couldn't keep his dog under control," Grant stated. "It kept attacking us."
"Instead of pulling his dog out of our reach, he repeatedly punched and kicked my dogs, in attempt to stop my dogs from fighting back." Grant went on to state. "I waved someone down and told them to call 911."
Grant continued, "The owner untied Dawn's leash while I w

My younger brother, Tanner, i've mentioned before, has a severe fatal heart defect, and my family and I try to make him happy everyday that he lives because we don't know how long he'll be with us, and we love him with all our hearts and try to make him happy and hope he has a long, good life.
So the point of this journal was, I wanted to do something for him, something really nice, but I can't do it on my own. I wanted to make him a collab of artwork from people to show everyone cares about him and is wanting him to get better, so I wrote this journal to ask whoever was nice enough to take the time to read this, if you would like to participate. You would be making a very special kid very very happy, and I would be more than willing to pay you some points (I only have 42, but i'll try my best) or draw you something in return.
It would be very very nice if you are willing, of course, to draw something special for him for me to add to the co

to actually enter you have to make a short video or comic based on serkan ridge to help promote it and spread the word!
(just to clear up the confusion)
first of all, thankyou for all the suggestions in my last journal, youve gave me lots to have a look at and keep busy c:
okay so hear me out
I was thinking not many people seem aware of Serkan ridge, though the fanbase It has (im hoping i can call it a fanbase) is very surppotive <3
and I thought, since im planning on getting the first few pages done digitally soon- the ones for print
the first few pages show two dogs getting killed
(and im sorry Db but for the sake of advertisement this sounds good X3)
Ive decided instead of the original plan of two random dogs getting killed by etch, why not let the fans have a chance?
so ve decided to hold a contest.
the winner gets to 'design' or have two of thier characte

"Dear Princess Celestia,
Today I learned that somepony who looks a little different, and may be a little clumsy at times (despite always doing their best), is *unquestionably* mentally challenged.
Instead of 'loving', 'tolerating', or more importantly, 'accepting' these ponies, and then teaching our young fillies to do the same, we should just fix these undesirable imperfections and hope that they will bring less attention to themselves.
Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle."

This is a topic that has been quite a nuisance since the start of season two of MLP:FiM. Why is that though? I mean, it shouldn't be a problem, right?... Well, I've been seeing some traits among the fandom that have been quite disturbing. I think before we get into that, let's look at the two terms and their differences. Now, it's eight in the morning for me and I'm running on only two hours of sleep after a good twenty(ish) awake, so I might not be here fully and use "proper" grammar, so too bad.
As I said before, let's take a closer look at the two terms, "Canon" and "fanon." What do they mean to us? For most people, the canon of the show is everything that the producers/artists/storyboarders throw into the show, making them "facts" of the world they live in. For instance, we all know that Twilight lives in the Ponyville Library, or that Pinkie Pie has two unnamed sisters. Some look at this

This story is true.
While I exaggerate some of the events in this story, and will not name certain specifics out of the interest of continued employment, everything in this story is true.
It is also a very long story. The story of 2011. The story of the year I spent going through unemployment, internships, freelancing, temp work, and reconstructing my own life from the ground up. It's about coming to the realization of my pride being my downfall, how much I thought I deceived myself into thinking I was any good at anything, how little I truly knew about myself, and of course, the ways in which I rectified it all...a little bit.
It's a story that continues as I still live on into the next day, and the day afterward, as the transition isn't anywhere near a heroic conclusion. But such is a matter of life; I am on this hero's journey of mine until the day I kick it. Perpetual change.
This is also a story I've been meaning to tell since last March. That was w

I had one of those moments.
Those moments when you realize that the one thing you once considered yourself proficient at, that little blessing from God Himself that defineed everything you were, is something you've been neglecting for several years.
"Well, I should know a thing or two about making games," I was telling my co-worker over lunch. A debate had arisen over a comment one of us made (probably me) about how a game's narrative is about as relevant as a stop sign at 2 in the morning. "I'd better know, seeing as I've actually made games."
He rolled his eyes, groaning with aggravated exhaustion. We had been working twelve to sixteen hour shifts for the last two weeks in a row without a day off. Understandably we were getting a bit short with one another, e
