For all the Derpygates and the clop pics and the cupcakes

you get things like PONIES The Anthology, and BOTH abridged serieses.

(You're a toymaker's creation/trapped inside a crystal ball♪)

Anyway, faith in the pony fandom: MINORLY restored. Rock on, vidmakers.
(6:16:09 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Anyway, going back to our original point, you're right. S2 has lost a LOT of internal continuity.
(6:17:33 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Especially when it comes to Rainbow Dash, who seems to bounce back and forth between popularity-obsessed pseudojock to slightly tomboyish coolkid.
(6:17:53 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Sometimes multiple times in an episode.
(6:19:22 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: The CMC stuff has gone from being endearing to forced - I understand needing a younger perspective, but "maybe we'll get our cutie marks!" is basically a pony-based way of saying "We're doing this because the plot says we have to!"
(6:22:27 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Pinkie has remained consistent insofar that she operates almost solely on Rule Of Funny, even when she's more serious, but what HASN'T remained consistent is that others - particularly Twilight - are starting to edge in on her territory, be it intentionally (the CMCs in the VDay ep) or unintentionally (Twilight's antics in Lesson Zero and It's About Time, which are painfully Genre Blind to a point Twilight never is otherwise)
(6:22:52 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Hence my "the show is cartoonier now" claim.
(6:24:50 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: The Flim Flam ep was a high point, Read It and Weep has introduced my favorite one-shot secondary character even if it was basically a blatant expy, and Hurricane Fluttershy is probably one of the most /relatable/ narratives about its subject matter I've ever seen
(6:25:18 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: But past those three? Yeah, S2 is as a whole mostly weaker than S1, ESPECIALLY if you take the Discord eps as technically part of S1 like some claim they were meant to be.
my little persona
i used to wonder what shadows could be
until you all said "no, this isn't me!"


I am a psycho. )
So. I guess I've started a crossover fic. I'm going to fandom hell, hoorj.

I tried my best to mimic the writing style of Curiosities of Lotus Asia here, though I'm pretty sure I failed spectacularly.

Don't bother with the C&C; I already know this is horrible and it's mostly something I'm putting to text to get it out of my head.

Prologue )
So. Those who don't follow ponies, feel free to disregard this.

For those who aren't caught up to recent episodes, the latest episode had Derpy Hooves - actually referred to in-script as 'Derpy', at that - have spoken dialogue.

I have heard now more than one person arguing that the slightly dim, low-voiced mare is "mocking people with developmental disorders", such as Downs Syndrome.

Because nobody can be different without being a victim. And because learning disabilities are TOTALLY symptomized by being fucking wall-eyed. And Tabitha St. Germain confused her for a male, has admitted such, and patterned her after a sleepy - but perfectly healthy - boy, the son of a neighbor.

But, well. I'll just repost what I said on AIM at this point.

(3:37:15 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: ...
(3:37:23 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Seriously, what?
(3:37:25 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Fuck.
(3:37:36 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: The what, by the way, not towards the trivia
(3:37:44 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: but towards the fact that people are getting upset about that.
(3:37:51 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Some women HAVE deeper, lower voices!
(3:37:58 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Hell, my mom's one of them!

[...]

(3:39:52 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: But yeah.
(3:40:11 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: It's a dumb argument and... heh. If I wanted to be a total troll, it'd be a self-defeating argument too.
(3:40:20 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: Because all you need to say to win that one?
(3:40:41 PM) [personal profile] swordianmaster: "Sometimes you don't need a developmental disability to be completely fucking retarded. QED."
swordianmaster: (fjsal)

(8:01:03 PM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: oh my god, I have diabetes now.
(8:01:22 PM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: Ariana got a FiM coloring book from her classmates for christmas, right?
(8:01:36 PM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: She brought me a picture of Rarity and said "daddy, this pony has the talent of pretty. :D"

fhgbrshfbgh THE CUTENESS IS A DEFENSE MECHANISM SO YOU DON'T KILL THEM. Augh.
swordianmaster: (TACOOOOS)
