So the story is continuing to crank up the intensity. I'm just kind of rolling with it at this point.

I didn't know Twilight had a cochlear implant or transmitter in her ear. Is it psychic phenomena? Who's talking to her? is it Luna?


I'm pretty sure the dream is collapsing. How many layers deep are we talking Five or Seven? Somebody send in the engineer or Eon isn't going to find the location of the secret rebel base.

Honestly, while Ultimate_Yoshi had a lot of very valid points in his review, now that I think about it, this comic isn't THAT bad. Flawed, yes, but I don't really think it deserves a 1 out of 10. It's certainly not NEARLY as bad as some of the other stuff he's reviewed.

Personally, I'd probably give this a 6 out of 10.

@Jarkes: I know I can do better.

I already came up with the whole plot about a couple years ago. So this is all pretty much enacting on an older mindset of mine. Also, when I first started this comic (and I'm still doing this until the comic ends), I began using pre-created graphics, as I felt that helped push me forward, making creating content easier. Even various scenarios (like the Rarity joke in Full Circle) came from me simply observing what graphics I had available, and suddenly got an idea for a page, based on a simple pre-created image. But somewhat like training wheels, I feel as though I've grown out of it, and now it starts to feel rather restrictive, which only goes to show that I'm ready to move on to a higher level. Next stop: hand-drawn visuals and a completely original property. I don't really have anything in mind for fan comics in the future. I feel I'll be able to express myself much better when every character, every setting, every element is something I created myself.

I think the comic is pretty ingenious with the limits that have been placed on it. While I could argue that it has its pacing problems, the most notable of which involves what's being shown and how much, I can still follow most of what is going on...

All learning requires empathy and cognitive complexity, and some people don't have the patience or skill to learn how to interpret another's expression of their *"Heart Song", [not necessarily self ((because as P.H.'s Batman pointed out "Hope doesn't start with an "S" stupid!"))] beyond formalism.

Ultimately, that is my theory. If people can't find hope or themselves in service of fantasy or therapy then chances are they aren't going to take the time and effort required to look for it. This comic fulfills a need, some people can make contact with it others cannot. If every aspect of communication is a directive transaction and everyone has their own unique ability to perceive, connect, and exchange ideals then the question that remains is why are some people more successful than others?

Is it money, status, power, merit, mastery, enjoyment, freedom, comfort, security, egotism, understanding, ???, profit! I cannot answer that question, I'm still trying to figure it out. My understanding of the contract was that as long as you explored the unknown, experienced joy, and expressed gratitude within the confines of appropriate decorum. As, much as, you effectively met your needs and goals through effort, education, experience, and ephemera; You would be endowed with success, money, power and influence beyond your wildest dreams.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem work that way at this time, if it ever did. There actually is a class system, and hierarchy, in place that limits social mobility without money or influence. When you're younger the bar is lower, and you owe less of a debt to others, your government, and your community at large. In fact, that's about the only difference. Most of your income as an adult supports your community, and while the people who hire you would make you work for nothing if they could, some understand or believe they can improve the quality of life for others. And then, you have the extortionists, the kind of individuals that would have you worked over like **"Little Hans" if they could (under the guise of doing you a great favor). Worse, you have the social butterflies who have cast upon themselves the role of angels in the field that are cold absolutionists and expect others to cater to their every need with unconditional HIGH regard; anyone who doesn't meet their need to feel important or express themselves as a positive force among the other Flowers, or followers, is weeded out and separated with the chaff like a tall poppy.

EDIT: *The term "Heart Song" was chosen because of the MLP context, and one must sometimes cater to the needs of the audience to attract interest and have influence. Also, I thought it a bit of dry humor.

** the example of "Little Hans" used above is in reference to Oscar Wilde's infamous explanation of true friendship. And, more than likely, will probably be confused with Sigmund Freud's case study of "Little Hans" the boy with a phobia of ponies, if I didn't clarify. One can see how jokes lose their humor if you explain them.

@GabrielsThoughts: Wow, umm... I was just humming the Doom victory theme a few seconds ago as I came here and checked your link and... What are the odds?

Yes, it's one of my favorite games, yes, I'm quite familiar with the Errant Signal videos, and yes... that game has influenced some of my own videogame concepts.

Keep in mind I've had to do as much to look at your uploads. There's a two and a half line limit in the post your comment window for outgoing links. And, it would appear that the highlighted portion it is converted to allcaps for anyone not the comic author.
