I think last week's page holds the current record for "least amount of comments on a single page." I'm a little surprised, really.

...Also, I still think it'd be funny if Lugbzurg the pony tried to flirt with Cadance and then got a death glare from Shining Armor. But something like that will probably have to wait until after this has all winded down.

...Incidentally, this is still labelled "Book 1," but I can't help but get the feeling you're not going to be doing a "Book 2" with the things you've said about wanting to do more original works.

@Jarkes: I think you're the first to catch on. To be perfectly honest, my interest in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has greatly diminished since I started this comic. Now, I don't outright HATE it. I'm just... ehh...

However, the comic still has a lot of fans, and I had a story I wanted to tell, and I'm dang-well going to finish it. I ought to at least have the common decency to do at least that much.

Once this climax and the resolution roll over, Serendipity will be over and I'll be starting my first original online webcomic, Gaiden Chain.

I think I should change the way I have the "chapter" system set up, too.

I never liked the show Friendship is magic.

I wouldn't say I hate it entirely considering what little I've seen of it. Still, from the first episode I found myself disgusted by the portrayal of more half the social population as second or third class citizens.

Combine that with their self righteous grandstanding and half assed morality plays... I found myself disgusted. Not to mention the influence, persuasion, and manipulation tactics used to inculcate their audience with the most retroactive status quo B.S. I've seen since the recent 2012 Spiderman flop.

All I'm saying is, if a criminal wants you to document his criminal behavior in the presence of witnesses, and they're that stupid, GO FOR IT! To the best of my knowledge It doesn't violate any code of honor or pose any ethical dilemma that I'm aware of. Seriously, even Veronica Mars has better street smarts than the latest incarnation of Peter Parker, and I think confronting gang members, rapists, drug dealers, and killers (in their private homes unarmed,) without a police escort or warrant, is pretty high on the stupid meter.

@GabrielsThoughts: One thing I recall hearing about recently is that most older childrens' shows, particularly anything that was or is now on PBS Kids or Nick Jr. that were about morality would do this...

When the characters are faced with a moral dilema, they just pick the good choice right from the get-go. Whereas, in several modern childrens' shows, the characters make the mistake of picking the bad choice, and have to learn their lesson the hard way for the duration of the entire episode.

Rule of Drama, I guess.

Sweet! I think I figured out a new trick to alienating people.

Does anyone here like Touhou? There's a Touhou fancomic here on Smack Jeeves that's actually been coming along fairly nicely, and I thought I should boost a little attention for it.

@Lugbzurg:

I've never heard about it before. Is it a game or an anime?

Also, not to change the subject but I'm curious anyway, I'm not sure about the legality of watching stuff on youtube. I have no problem watching stuff I already own or which is available on hulu and amazon prime since I technically already paid for it. With youtube and other sites I'm not sure how that works. Granted, I pay for cable service and internet service. Obviously, there are fewer commercials. And, I do prefer english dubs to subs when I watch anime as a matter of convenience (for example I can do two things at once like cooking, organizing, or cleaning and following the story at the same time; whereas with the subs the most I can do is sit in place and do upper body exercises.)

@GabrielsThoughts: It's a series of Japanese indie games. They're in the "Bullet Hell" genre, like eXceed. It's something like... 2D Serious Sam, with an emphasis on dodging the insane amount of stuff hurled at you. However, there are a couple of doujinshi Touhou animé out there somewhere.

On a similar note, I just started playing a rather unusual indie game. It makes a lot of sense. It's complete nonsense. As you go right, you will go left. You have no choice but to accept the fact that you must make a choice.

It's called "The Stanley Parable".

@Lugbzurg:
I suddenly realised how appropriate the following VG Cats comic relates to the "stanley parable"...in more ways than one.
