Why I'm So Defensive of Nickelodeon...(WARNING: YET ANOTHER VENTING POST OF MINE. SO SORRY TO THOSE WHO FOLLOW MY JOURNALS AND ARE SICK OF SEEING THIS HAPPEN)More Like This
So why? ...I'm just insecure about being a fan of theirs. There, I said it!
I've been coming up with excuse after excuse for their mistakes and trying my best to put a positive spin on each one because those mistakes and all the hatred towards them is making me ashamed to be a fan of theirs, but I don't want to quit being a fan, so I pull excuses out of my butt to make myself feel better! It's the only thing keeping my pent-up anger in check so I don't end up doing something I might regret to any haters... or myself. That and reassurance from people who actually agree with me.
But now I'm thinking... Only hearing what I want to hear and saying what I only want to be said isn't how I need to handle this. It only exasperates my problem and ends up affecting those around me.
The only way I'm going to get over this is to get used to the truth.

Discussion: Doing 'Reason You Suck Speeches' rightAnyone can do a Reason You Suck Speech in shows or fanfictions. In the latter, they're not too hard to find; you just need to look for the massive wall of text, sometimes partly, if not mostly in capitals or bold font.More Like This
Yes, I like Reason You Suck Speeches, especially if it is against a character deserving of one and it is a long time coming. However, even though anyone can write one, especially in fanfiction, and in particular, list all the points fans want addressed, that doesn't automatically make the speech work.
Take, for a non-pony negative example, Family Guy's 'Seahorse Seashell Party'.
Of course we all wanted Meg to finally hit back at her family and the monologues themselves she gave them were on-the-nose and eloquent, but that doesn't excuse the fact they were still contrived and uninteresting and how everything went straight back to normal, even going as far to justify Meg's situation. Her decision to unleash on her famil

About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)Well, here's the scoop-More Like This
Get used to it, because she's here to stay. And not just in the show.
We're introducing the updated version of season three's Twilight Sparkle into the comics as well.
We're asked about 5th person at our tables: "what do you think?" "Why did they do that?" "Are you gonna.." etc.
Since we work hand in hand with Hasbro, we never had any intention of NOT updating Twilight for the books as well.
And quite frankly... we are all about it!
Neither Katie Cook nor myself understand the hatred going on for having Twilight become a princess. Katie has made an outstanding point- Twilight may be the only popular character to have EARNED her crown... she worked for it, suffered for it, and it was awarded. She didn't marry into it, wasn't born into it (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, etc etc). That gives little girls a character that WORKED FOR WHAT SHE EARNED. One helluva example I think. And for Katie, with a little girl and another on the way... that's a great t

Love Letter to a Movie (Wreck-it Ralph SPOILERS)Sorry guys, I just have to. It's been a while since I've updated journal entries so I think I'm gonna make one about how much I loved the movie Wreck-it Ralph. Think of it as a review. Spoilers? I think so. SO don't read anymore if you haven't seen the movie but want to!More Like This
So I hadn't seen much animated movies this year. I only saw The Lorax and Brave, both of which I really liked but probably not enough to be completely satisfied. Heck, all of my favorite movies this year were live-action (Avengers, Moonrise Kingdom, Batman, Prometheus, yada yada yada), which is odd because the years before that I was extremely passionate about all animated movies. I still am, but this year has felt a little lackluster to me when it came to animation. I know that there is Pirates! and Paranorman, two movies that have been getting extraordinary feedback, but I couldn't see either. I couldn't see Pirates! because no one I knew wanted to see it with me, and Paranorman because I'm raised

Name: Danielle or "Dani"
Mer-Species:Clownmaid (Clownfish mermaid)
Bio:Danielle is Daphne's little sister. Despite her being the 2nd oldest of the 12 children, Dani was sheltered most due to her frequency of getting sick. Being a year apart from each other Danielle and Daphne spent the most time together. Dani would often hang around Daphne since she was the only one who wouldn't let Dani's illnesses keep them from having fun. Dani and Daphne would often sneak away on different adventures throughout their childhood, but when Daphne left to visit the city Dani stayed behind believing it to be too irresponsible to leave knowing the consequences of going there.
However when Daphne didn't return home in the time promised, Dani tells her mother out of worry which lead to Daphne's banishment. Feeling guilt, Dani bargain's with her mother, if Daphne can only return if Danielle brings her back. When Dani goes to collect D
Bayonetta 2 Wii U ExclusiveThis is a dark day people, a day where unique hard core games truly die. It seems that Bayonetta 2 is indeed a realitity as I've come to known but turns out that it's an exclusive to the Wii U, y'know, the console that's not for hard core gamers? Why is this not coming to the PS3 or Xbox? Y'know, the consoles that are taylored to hard core gamers? Well there are gamers who won't let this travesty fly, they are setting up a boycott to see that Sega gets it through their thick heads that Bayonetta belongs on the good consoles, not that Disneyfied turd. We must join together to help make this possible, we must bring Bayonetta back to the gamers who deserve her more and not let her fall into the hands of stupid waggle controls and 60 something granpas who the Wii is taylored fo-More Like This

The General was looking forward to the possibility of meeting her old friend again.
A breeze blew through the night, rustling the pine needles lightly. The sky was clear and the moon a crescent. She hoped it would stay that way, at least until the end of the night, rather than the constant switch between a cool breeze and a chilling gale. However, even the now-calm weather could not lower the tension around her, around all of them.
The middle-aged woman noted the trees were beginning to thin. We are close. She was straining for the faintest noise, the smallest movement, or the slightest whiff. A few more minutes passed before she caught the scent of urine once more.
At once, the timber wolves rose into view from the hills on either side of them and the trees behind them, ears back and silent.
Why are they attacking now? She asked herself. All of the othe

"Everyone, ride your horse up to the spot labeled on the map, then meet up at the rendezvous point. I have to break away for a little while. Eld's in charge until I come back." Levi turns on his horse and faces his squad. "(f/n), come with me"
"You're a big boy Levi, I'll stick with the squad."
Levi sends you a stern look. "I said come with me."
You give him a reassuring smile. "They need me more then you do." Oluo lets out an offended gasp. "Now go see the Commander, Corporal Bossy Pants."
You roll your eyes and interrupt Levi's commanding voice. "Levi, just go. You know how I am."

I lay there in suspended animation.
I felt myself floating.
The bear was melting. Old grizzly bear, my friend. Good old bear.
I demorphed. The snake was still in my mouth. Motionless.
I was Rachel again, the human Rachel, alive, unhurt. I could have bounded up and gone off to the mall to shop. But I didn't kid myself. I didn't hope.
I spit the snake out.
I was surrounded on all sides. I was only a weak human girl now. The polar bear loomed over me, his strength the equal of my own grizzly, but now I was just me, just Rachel.
I could see the viewscreen. I could see my best friend Cassie. Jake. Marco, funny Marco. Ax.
He had morphed. He was his human self once more. He'd done that for me. And because he was crying. I understood. Humans cry, hawks don't.
