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.3 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
Okay seriously fandomI love being part of this fandom, I do. Ponies have consumed me and I wouldn't have it any other way.Okay seriously fandom3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But some of you annoy me.
So let me vent. There are just a few things that I can't keep silent on, and hey, what's a journal for if not writing down regrettable rants?
1) We are not the show's main audience. Even me, and I'm at least female, which puts me closer than about 88% of you. Derpy Hooves as a "where's waldo" of MLP is an excellent way for the team to acknowledge and give something to the bronies. But I don't know at what point bronies started assuming that this show was "ours" in some way. Derpy Hooves shouldn't have a major role, that makes no sense and would ruin her. Shipping should not exist in a show aimed at 6 year old girls, honestly, would your parents have let you watch that when you were little? Would you think parents today would let their kids watch that? Trixie under Mare-do-well's hood would have been completely random and made no sense, Trixie was a throwaway c
Blackout DayBlackout Day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Logging on to the internet today, we've all seen the far-reaching and high profile impact of SOPA Blackout Day protests. Wikipedia, Google, Reddit, the number of sites participating is inspiring. I was also extremely happy and proud to see Equestria Daily shutting down for the day as well. On the other hand, I was dismayed to see the response from some commenters and regulars to the site. Most folks understodd the importance of this issue and the stand the crews were taking by doing this. But a few individuals responded with complaints, whining, and disdain for the protest and the danger SOPA and PIPA present to our community and access to technology and free information for us all.
To those people, I say this- If you think YouTube's policies are bad now, wait unti

This Thursday, April 5, Bento Box will be hosting a silent art auction at the Animation Guild in Burbank CA to benefit storyboard artist Joey Adams and his family. I do not yet have the pleasure of knowing Joey, but the Los Angeles animation community is really rallying around him and his family's current crisis trying to save the life of one of their little boys--- only a couple years after tragically losing their 16-month-old daughter to a similar condition.

Support brony artists: 50 Premium Memberships!Hello there everypony. Browsing around deviantART as usual, I found a journal in the bottom of the screen, basically about collecting points, to give away premium memberships to artists. I thought I'd do something similar, because hey, why not?Support brony artists: 50 Premium Memberships!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ummm...why exactly, again?
Okay, this is the thing. deviantART has a lot of very talented artists of the fandom that contribute with great drawings/ comics/ music/ literature, but they don't always get as much support as they deserve. That's why from now until December 25 2012 I'll open a donation pool, in which you can contribute with as many points as you want.
How many points should we donate?
Since I'll be giving away 50 3 month premium memberships, the goal would be 31,800 points. However, I will personally contribute with 636 points (the equivalent of one membership), so, the goal is 31,164 points Of course, if that goal is exceeded, I will continue collecting points an

Among the ponies stands Princess Luna, her normally flowing cosmic mane slightly matted from the rain. Unable to simply observe, she assists her subjects in any way she can.

A modest pony with a strawberry mane turns her head to see who is addressing her, then quickly snaps to a salute when she realizes who it is.

You can tell people the name of his mother. You can instantly sum up the age difference between him and his older sibling. You can create improvised dialogue for him and tell how this newly born creation would react in varying scenarios.
But you can't pin a name on him.
HE MIGHT AS WELL BE NAKED AND, SIR, JUST WILL NOT DO. For there are underage OC's also occupying the space in my mind and I will not have him flaunting your bits and bobs in their faces. Now, he will have to retire to the back room of my cranium while I search every naming website avaliable to me while I try and find him a suiting title.
Good day, sir.

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

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
