Say, Derpy Hooves. How are those wings able to carry you? They seem so small. No wait, lemmie guess: Magic?

Brace yourselves, everypony! The climactic finale of Fluffle Puff's little misadventure is near!

@snoopixs2654:

How could you not expect such a thing? The event was all but telegraphed.

Unless you are talking about the engine failure or the knots in Flufflepuff's hair being coated in studs of bubblegum and matted with wax and grease. After all, that is the only way her hair could be that sticky to infinity.

Good lord someone give that pony a shave and a haircut. At the very least she needs a bath.

Yes, soon you will be old enough to drink depressants and moonshine... Beer is awful, stick to wine and rum, believe me when I tell you they are the better tasting alcohol.

Incidentally, Lugbzurg, I have a question. Is there anything you've done on the internet that's an old shame to you? Like, any particular comics or other stuff.

@Jarkes:

I am not LugZ. I regret nothing. I have a social handicap much like that of Keima Katsugari, from 'The world god only knows,' where I am able to quickly gain fair weather friends and develop intimate relationships of council with people completely without trust, expectation, or a guarantee that I'll be remembered by them in the future.

Works out great for everything except job references. That's why most of my electives and extraneous classes to maintain full time status in college were communication courses. In my free time I read sociology, psychology, coaching, social engineering, sales, and interpersonal communication manuals.

Someday, my hobby will benefit me and i'm hoping I'll make lots of money, but for now I'm more like an unemployed stage/production manager or actor, and what I really want to be is a movie producer.

@Lugbzurg:

Yes, I am older than you. I also think I could write a better review, buuuut I took a college level course on critique.

Therefore, my ability to assess and measure quality is limited to a handful of honest opinions. I do this simply, by letting you know what I think without insulting you as a person and roughly comparing your work to similar things and established standards.

In fact, questions of value have have been raised by some as to whether or not videogames are art. Sprite comics in particular are arguably little more than fanfiction with pictures.

However, at this time, I only question why you are ashamed.

@Lugbzurg:



I still don't understand why you are ashamed.

You don't honestly think professional writers and actors began their careers as amazingly skilled and talented stars before they just stopped growing more amazingly skilled and talented.

Look at many of the cartoons and comics from the 80's and early 90's and you'll find the same terrible writing and shifty plotholes.

In fact, many of the television programs made for children between the ages of six and twelve abound with nothing but terrible writing and plot holes of illogical convenience. And then there are lifetime and syfy movies, stories full of good ideas but they just don't work because people are not that ignorant. Actors especially, are not that ignorant.

@Lugbzurg: ...Wow. And I thought MY first attempts were bad. For the record, most of my really early fanfics were never published on the internet, and they were lost when my old computer died. Unfortunately, I still remember much of the awful, awful things I had written when I was about thirteen or so. Unfortunately, the first few things I published on fanfiction.net were STILL terrible, even though I had written them at the age of 16 or so. I think "Shining in the Darkness" is the first fanfic I've written that I'm NOT ashamed of.

Out of curiosity, when was that comic of yours originally published? Not the commentary, the actual comic.

@Jarkes:

I'd have to look at the copyright documents to be sure, but I'm pretty sure most of my archive was copyrighted September 11, 2006 and I had most of the extra pages and at least one issue copyrighted again just after I stopped making pages in 2009. Then again this isn't about me now is it. Also, I'm not ashamed of what I created. I'm actually quite proud.

Hmmm... Let's see... June 28th, 2008. So, it started on my 14th half-birthday. This was my first attempt at trying something dark and serious.

Oh, and that reminds me. There's actually a game made by Sega called "Shining in the Darkness"!

Thank you. I'm Flattered that you noticed. You are very perceptive, and seem like the kind of person who is open to discussion.

@Lugbzurg:
No one said anything about your avatar because an avatar is like a christmas sweatshirt. It's not you, it's something you dress or disguise yourself with.

So anyway, one of the rainbow dash analogs, among the many comics I have read, has boy parts apparently. Not that there isn't a webcomic that hasn't touched the pony memes. I'm sure if they have updated within recent years there is a pony in there somewhere.

Thanks to Tom Green's 'Fredie Got Fingered,' and the faceless shadows of dirty manga, you can imagine how horrifyingly traumatic the image is that has invaded my brain.

It's kind of like Yugi-Oh! crossed with Thunder Cats and Total Drama Island... which is not a very good description but you get the idea.

EDIT : I also probably have different standards for voice acting I think the Voice actors for 'GTO' and 'Ghost Stories' were really good and probably improvised a lot of dialog. The performances in 'Chaotic' were more believable than those in 'Jackie Chan Adventures.' So, I guess that makes it really good. Although, that could be more attributed to the writing than performance. I didn't find any of the voices shrill or irritating like I do for some imported anime.

Sooooo... Princess Twilight is an official thing.

Thoughts, everyone? Personally, I'm eager to see what they'll do with it. I think they can get a lot of the show's typical shenanigans just from "Twilight gets used to her new role as Princess." Considering at this point season 4 has been more or less confirmed as well...

I think he's telling you he's not interested... I guess. I would have been less subtle.

Then again I'm not a fortune teller. If I was clairvoyant I probably wouldn't be thinking for other people or assuming I'm right.

Keep in mind he's probably busy filling in the last minute details of flufflepuff's remarkable rocket adventure. I'm assuming it's powered by poison joke.

Think of it, everyone would be affected except Flufflepuff... maybe that's why her hair was so sticky.

Naturally, the static electricity flowing through her hair would discharge a lightning bolt with a thunder shock loud enough to wake the dead if the sonic boom of reentry doesn't ignite her into a great ball of fire.
