I finally write written report since my return from BronyCon and it has nothing to do with the reporting organized details of the trip, nor responding to the dozens of messages I should be responding to. Way to go hima.
Didn't bother to re-read either.
Just wanted something to vent.
Chatting over with some friends on Skype, accidentally that irking and "hard to fathom the reason why" topic of the status of american animation today surfaced. I mean, let's go back to the 90's and the beggining of the last decade for a moment. What was on television then? How did Nickelodeon and Disney Channel operate? How did Cartoon Network start?
Nickelodeon had been around for a little while by the time Cartoon Network came to be if I recall correctly. And by 1993 it started producing original animated content. Animated content with creative settings and clever humor. Either characters we could relate to, or character
Writing Tips: Adult Cartoons (Part I)How I'd make a cartoon specifically for adults without shoehorning in shock value and grossout (or how to not make Mr. Pickles). This is going to be a very broad topic and I'll be speaking generally because there's just as many ways to make a cartoon for adults as there are to kids. There is no right one absolute answer, and everything does have the ability to fail if one unpredictable thing goes wrong. My opinions on adult cartoons are well-known at this point. The majority of them are 22 minutes of shock humor with some "social commentary" deliberately designed to be "edgy." So, if I were to make an adult cartoon, which would I do? Well the first hurtle is asking the question where do we begin?Writing Tips: Adult Cartoons (Part I)3 weeks ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Your jaw dropped. “The Ripper?” You echoed, voice hollow in shock.
He grinned playfully. “What, are you a little more frightened now, poppet?”
You stared at him, meeting his blue eyes unwaveringly, and then you tackle-hugged him. You couldn’t help it! Murderer or not, this was the very source of your obsession for more than half your life.
He staggered back, stunned. It wasn’t easy to faze him, but this really did it. “What the hell?” He demanded, sounding vaguely normal.
You let go, coughing. “Sorry…um…rather…ah, never mind.” You shook your head and folded your arms. “So, how exactly would I be working with you?”
He beamed. “Well, you won’t be helping me rape and kill prostitutes, I can tell you that much, poppet.”
“It’s ______!” You corrected again, and shivered. “Well, thank God for that. Otherwise, I would definitely ask you to kill me.”

I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand a word you say, but I shall still be

It was a beautiful cool night in Mobius. The stars were shining brightly in the sky. The moon seemed unusually large but just as beautiful. The cool breeze brushed Sally's long hair, making it flow like shimmering red waves in the air. She sat peacefully under a tree, enjoying the wind in her hair. She felt someone sit next to her and turned around. It was Sonic.
- "You startled me Sonic." she said. Sonic smiled at her and laid his head on the tree.
- "So, should I go then?" he said not taking his eyes of her.

Sonic walked out of the bar still processing the whole conversation with Tina. He couldn't believe that Amy had went through all of that just for her to be with him. He felt like such a jerk for pushing her away from him all these years. He had to admit at first he thought that Amy was a little weak but strong willed, he had known her story from one point of perspective, but now that he knows a whole lot more about her, he wanted to just punch himself in the gut hard. He looked at his watch and saw that it was 7:30PM, he was about to call Amy but when he got out his phone he heard someone speak to him.
"Hey handsome." a female girl said.
Sonic looked up and smiled, Amy...
"Hey pretty lady. What are you doing out here all by yourself?" he said coolly.
She giggled and walked up to her blue boyfriend, and gave a sweet, tender kiss.

It was so blinding, like a never ending flash that felt unrealistic. I was burning hot and freezing cold at the same time, and felt...strange..
After what felt like forever, I found myself laying on my right side against a floor. Everything around me was white, like the flash, but not as bright. Slowly, I brought myself to my feet, and dusted myself off, then looked down, then up.
Where...where am I? I thought to myself. I looked at my hands, then down at my shoes. I was still me, normal.
I tried thinking back, what just happened...? I...Am I dead? I turned around and saw something in the distance. I'm not sure what it is, but start walking towards it. I could have ran, but..I didn't want to. I kept my pace slow, and tried to make out the figure in the distance.

Sadly, I still hadn't adapted to the idea of my leg being gone. I stopped complaining about it, but It was still weird to be bedridden. Ha, imagine, Sonic the hedgehog bedridden!
I heard the door knob jiggle, and quickly sat up in the bed. The door creaked open, and Amy walked inside with a tray full of my favorite foods. (Do I really need to mention the chilly dog?)

“Already? But this is Tails’s workshop.”
“Exactly. But we need a machine to get to the place.”
“Ok…” Amy was still confused by all this. She watched her blue husband as he knocked on the door, which opened to reveal a tired yet happy yellow kitsune.
“Sonic!” Tails hugged his brother. “It’s great to see you again!” He then saw Amy behind Sonic, wearing a red top with straps down her shoulders, white shorts with her usual red and white boots at the bottom and red hairband to keep on her long quills. “You too, Amy. I see that you guys have a baby coming soon.”
Amy blushed. “How did you know?” She glanced at Sonic but he just shrugged. “Did Sonic tell you?”
“Nope, I just know.” Tails smiled.

The list had merely three things on it...
-A Portal Emerald
-A strand of Sonic's fur
-A bit of Sonic's blood.
She wasn't used to doing these things by herself, and she had no knowledge on how to get any of these items. In fact, she never knew there was ever such a thing called a Portal Emerald. Really no one had, they were extremely rare. They were used by the ancients before the Chaos Emeralds had ever come to be. To open up holes anywhere in the universe or in another universe and travel through them. They were extremely tricky to use to. With the Chaos Emeralds, only a certain few could use them, the ones who had the power of Chaos within them. Port

A Beasts Rose PrologueOnce upon a time, there was a young prince that lived in a shining castle. His name was Sonic, Sonic the hedgehog. He had many servants that did what he asked without question, the wishes that he wanted, and the respect from all the people that lived there. He had everything that his heart desired, but he was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. People warned him of the dangers that he was putting himself into, but he paid no head and continued his ways. One winter's night, however, that would all change. The wind howled and blew fiercely on the land, the snow turned harsh and cold, and anybody who was out there would surly freeze to death.A Beasts Rose Prologue2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Depression...No, depression is not just getting sad.Depression...2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's a constant sadness that melts into your bones,
An indescribably heavy weight upon your shoulders,
Never mind your heart and soul.
It's believing so many lies (maybe because you've learned to accept them)
And no longer appreciating your self-worth.
Wishing you no longer existed, wishing yourself gone.
Depression holds you back from your dreams
And pulls you into a nightmare.
It takes full control of your existence.
It makes you never want to get out of bed,
And when you finally do,
You just want to get back in it.
But you know the hardest part?
