I'm Home/Hotel Transylvania/Tagged, FluttershyI am back from Korea, ( i came back last night, but the internet wasn't working for me to post this) and it was lovely, we took a tour there, so no wasting time, its winter there, that I'm not so used to it, since i live in Indonesia, after a few days we got used to the cold (either that or the temperature went up) we went to Jeju Island and Seoul, sadly i don't know why i don't remember half of what i did while i was in Jeju Island, i hope it will come back to me soon. I was a bit terrified that might freeze my fingers and toes, especially in Nami (?) Island, thankgoodness i made it, a bit unfortunate cause i couldn't enjoy the beauty of the sun, warm/cold colors, and the beautiful scenery, all in thanks to me getting a headache, I could have taken a lot of beautiful pictures. but yeah, the tour was quite fun.
That's all i have to say.. I'm boring..:c

By Tchernobog, I think it's way too beautiful to not share here:
Applejack shivered slightly as she trotted through the snow. She'd left her trust hat at home, mostly because Rainbow Dash had dragged her out of the house before she could grab it. She had however managed to lay a hoof on a scarf, and was glad for its warmth. She figured that warmth was half because of the material it was made of, and half because it was the scarf Rainbow had made her, shocking her with the thoughtfulness and the craftsmanship. It was like Rainbow had taken her tail, turned it into wool, and knitted a scarf out of it. Not one stitch out of place.
Applejack suspected a white unicorn may have helped, but she kept that idea to herself. The thought and gesture counted for so much more.
Rainbow, who had been jumping around in the snow like an eager foal, stopped her frolicking as her eyes locked on Applejack's. The oran

This never ceases to be hilarious to me. A big evil corporation or totalitarian regime takes power and the first thing they do is outlaw all primary colors, build tons of ugly buildings, hire armies of jack-booted thugs in face concealing helmets to patrol the streets...and apparently people couldn't be happier. Sure they whine about their taskmasters all the time but nobody attempts to rebel in public and said stormtroopers are so dedicated they will chase the hero EVERYWHERE and risk dying in horrible ways just for the honor of missing at them with their guns.

Now in the past MLP grabbed me by how it broke the mold.
The general rule of thumb for animated marketing ploys is be as safe as possible, and out of the gate this new reiteration of MLP under the helm of Lauren Faust did some extremely daring things. For one thing the main character was not a happy-go-lucky individual: she was closeted, irritable know-it-all with marked disdain for others. In other words she seemed out

Outcome of Episode B- Big Mac and Cheerilee DO end up together. In this case, the sotry will go like this-
Big Mac and Cheerilee had a healthy, happy relationship going, and were planning on getting married some day. However, Cheerilee received an offer to work at Celestia's School as a history teacher, a prospect almost unheard of for non unicorns. She couldn't pass up her ultimate dream, and so she accepted without talking to Mac. At around the same time, the Apple Family Had recently received a huge grant to more than double the size of their farm, and business was more important than ever. So when Cheerilee told Mac about her plans to move, he was reluctant to tell her he couldn't come with, because h

A lot of people over on Reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/mylittlepony/comments/wy7jn/ii_cant_think_of_any_wordsjustwow/) are getting on the artist's case for being too obsessed about the show and wanting Equestria to be "heaven" when the piece (if you bother to read the artist's description) was a commission from someone who was trying to show how people can become too obsessed and damage their real life for an imaginary one. In other words, it's a beautifully done piece that ALSO has a really powerful social message.

A lot of you have probably heard of Hurricane Irene, but if you haven't, it's a big storm slamming most of the east coast. My area has been warned we could potentially lose power for a week. We're not in the frontline, we haven't evacuated, but anything could happen. So I may disappear for quite a while. Or maybe not, fingers crossed. Er....hooves crossed or something.

Using a traced base is like being the last segment of a human centipede.

Did you know my grandmother recently celebrated her 92nd birthday despite having smoked her whole life? Does this therefore prove that smoking is harmless?
Let me make this very clear: Personal anecdotes are not and will not ever be acceptable as emperical arguments. They are unverifiable, tainted by bias and are a sampling of only one, far far FAR too small to be valid data.
Not to mention it's a complete evasion of the moral question of the state. Even if you're absolutely right in that the NHS took good care of you, that doesn't excuse the fact that it's an institution funded by coersion. Being polite about stealing is still stealing. There were plenty of businesses that were helped by the mafia too. Did that excuse their crimes? No, the ends do not justify the means.

What is 20% Cooler? Bronies often use the term "20% Cooler" when expressing jubilaiton, enticing an idea, etc. Then there rises the question; how MUCH is 20%?What is 20% Cooler?2 years ago in Other More Like This
There are things called "cool points", which some people may achieve and lose by doing certain actions. A good example of this is when you barley dodge a stinger slung at your face; Congratulations, bro! You got ten cool points! Sometimes, you lose some for trpping over that tiny rock, or running into a pole while texting. Ouch, bro, you lose 3 cool points there.
The system is infinite. You can never cap your cool points, and thus can constantly get more cool as long as you don't slip up. But, in the land of ponies, you can achieve an indulgence of being "20% cooler". This can be a rather menial boost, or an extreme shoot-up in your cool points track. If you have only 1 cool point, once you get that indulgence, you now have 1.2 cool points. If you have 200 cool

To answer that question, it is important to understand what rules apply and what intellectual property (IP) is.
There are three different kinds of IP that can apply here:

This means that if someone copies your art (by directly copying it, by tracing it or otherwise adapting your work) you can certainly take action, but there is little you can do to prevent someone else creating their own
A problem I noticed...with a lot of mane six shipping fics. And it should be something you guys should try and keep your eye out for.A problem I noticed2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It generally revolves around fics where one of the love interests is crippled or is depressed, something like that, but there are other times when this happens in general stories. It mostly is about the mane six though.
Well, how do you make a shipping story? You have two characters fall in love. That's a nice idea, and you should go for it, shipping is cool and I like characters to be happy in fics. But how do you DO that?
No matter what a lot of people say, all of the mane six are really good friends. Some are better friends than others. Rarity and Fluttershy are shown to have a very close relationship where they meet up for a special trip weekly. That's pretty darn tight as friends. AJ and Dash are certainly some of the best friends with how they react to eachother in the background in a lot of episodes, the whole ho

So.Let's discuss fandoms.So.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It annoys me when people hate a fandom because of a generalization. Take, for example, the MLP fandom. "That fandom is full of perverts,". Okay, yes, there is quite a bit of porn in that fandom. Does that mean everyone in the fandom is a sick fuck? No. It simply means that there is porn in the fandom. If somebody chooses to make porn, good for them. They do what they want, just as you do what you want.
What I've come to realize is that you shouldn't be afraid to try out a new fandom or thing because of horror stories and idiots. How much do you guys want to bet that for every idiot fan there is that there are at least 3 honest-to-goodness fans, if not more?
Let me tell you about something (and it's not Homestuck):
Every fandom has porn. Every fandom has slash and crack pairings. Every fandom has overly obsessive fangirls/boys. Every fandom has shitty fan characters (with the obvious exceptions of fandoms like Shelock and Dr. Who, where it's live action and a pers

Fluttershy placed the book, face down, on the table and walked to meet him. They shared a little kiss before she murmured, "I am actually glad you're here. There is something I have been wanting to tell you".

They were not ordinary words. They were more than that. They were words she had deeply cherished, words that she could not decline. They were words that were coming out of her lover's mouth. They were words that would change both of their lives forever.

The world seemed to freeze. Time seemed to freeze. Fluttershy was chilled to the bone when her long-term boyfriend, Big Macintosh, proposed those very words to her.

Her family is clearly rich or well off, considering that they live in Canterlot, as well as being able to put their daughter into the Gifted Unicorns school (Celestia didn't discover Twilight until -after- Twi was enrolled in the school, doing the entry exam, so there was no in-housing in via royal connections). Let's not forgot that Shining Armour somehow had the opportunity to get close to and spend time with Princess Cadence, which can't be an easy task since she's, you know, a Princess, which puts them further up the social c
