no way pinkie pie is the best

I’m about to cry oh my god why am I so unlucky I mean what did I actually do to deserve this?

So, I had this whole thing written out. Entirely written out, all the terrible jokes, all the explanations no one wants to hear, all of it. It was long, and mostly interesting, and even had a gif at the end, like I never do that, that’s how into it I was. Then, I left it for three seconds to quickly check if I spelled ‘repression’ correctly, and I had, and then I went back and for some reason it was just gone! Gone! GONE! Why are even the simplest tasks so difficult for me to do?

Anyway, ehm, even though this story isn’t told through Rarity’s perspective, it’s narrative is still mostly driven by her scrapbook, which at first mostly contains almost stalkerish pictures of Applejack but eventually leads into the school year, which is the duration of time this story tells or whatever.

The basic storyline is this: Twilight Sparkle, a junior reporter attending Ponyville High begins her school year by delving into Ponyville’s unassuming history in order to figure out the cause of all the magical mishaps happening in Ponyville and how new girl Sunset Shimmer ties in with it all. Her photographer, Rarity Belle, struggles to cope when her mother’s old process camera begins to capture shadows, strange figures and feints of light that aren’t there, while also very awkwardly wooing her romantically oblivious crush, Applejack. Pinkie Pie, resident class clown and conspiracy theorist, attempts to get the attention of Twilight through numerous acts of love, but they ultimately end in misfortune and mess up her investigation. Fluttershy Breeze, an amateur voodoo practicer, keeps getting prophetic nightmares about her classmates, and, more specifically, her best friend Rainbow Dash, whom she had begun developing feelings for. Meanwhile, Rainbow Dash really begins to feel the burn of popularity when her boyfriend, Soarin, and the football team start getting in the way of her friendship with Fluttershy, and with her younger adoptive sister Scootaloo suddenly hospitalised and her parents divorcing, begins to emotionally distance herself from her friends and family. Applejack Smith begins suffering with paranoia and anxiety when touching people leads to them acting on their more sadistic and honest desires, which only gets worse when she begins to do the same with the people she cares about. Eventually it all leads them to the same place; the Everfree forest, where they discover they are connected to both each other and the forest in more ways than one…

Real quick apology to @feellikeaplat because I accidentally gave my Twilight your Twilight’s hair. I swear it was an accident I didn’t even notice until the drawing was finished and I was casually stalking your page and it was too late to change it.

And now also a huge shoutout to my boy @slendyanswers who has been endlessly patient with me and has helped me with many parts of this storyline, which he will be credited for more specifically when they show up! Also, public apology to him too, I know I suck at keeping up conversations and I know I can get weirdly distant and stuff but it’s just I get really nervous when I text people sometimes and I’ve been really busy lately. When I get the time I will absolutely send you a hello or whatever, thanks for being so cool about my terrible social skills.

In other news, I went to see Wonder Woman today and it was AMAZING and everyone should watch it. At the end she does this like care bear stare thing and it’s really cool. Yup yup yup.

Hexafusion: Silly girls edition.

Planned on having this done sooner, but after getting on a Sunset Shimmer kick this sorta took a backseat. Started this not long after the first hexafusion. I thought this would be easy and quick to do with the simple designs here, but it took longer than I expected. Not sure if this came out as good as the first hexafusion. The last fusion I started two nights ago and rushed it a bit (just finished it this morning). I honestly just wanted this done and out of the way, so I can move on to the other hexafusions I’ve planned. And get back to Sunset.

So I got a really fun commission where in I replicated the Freedom from Want painting by Norman Rockwell only with ponies and pony like casseroles instead of a turkey since ponies don’t eat meat.

Also, since this is a commission, there is a copyright. Best way to get pony art from me without one is to commission me.

Pinkie Pride-review and thoughts

From the post below you will see what I liked and disliked about this episode.

In the beginning we see Pinkie coming into Ponyville while singing, this is what I enjoyed in this episode, being made into a musical! I guess it had to be if they have someone like Weird Al being the voice of Cheese Sandwich.

Lets take a look at Cheese Sandwich, his style is so similar to Pinkie’s and the way he acts, he is like the male version of Pinkie Pie. When he stroll into town he said that he had a “cheesy sense”. We can all agree that he base his looks on Pinkie when he was young which I will explain later.

Now the song which Weird Al, “super duper Party Pony” which his whole voice changes from low to high and happy, along with the polka music and accordion playing, this represent Weird Al in the best.

What I did'it like was how quickly Cheese Sandwich appeared and suddenly the mane 5 quickly forgets Pinkie Pie to go and hire him on the spot. especially Rainbow Dash. who quoted “Sure Pinkie’s party is sweet…..but now with you its going to be Epic!” and then Pinkie is Crying and Rainbow says “no offense” in which Pinkie just lets out a fake smile and pretended it did ‘it bother her.

Rainbow Dash the element of loyalty how soon you change sides.

Moving to the third song that Pinkie sang, while everyone is helping in Rainbow Dash’s party with Cheese, Pinkie is by herself sad and alone. It’s good that we see a different side of Pinkie than the happy, excitable and hyper Pony she is, because even the happiest person could feel down sometimes. When she goes into sugercube corner we see this.

What the-! who’s that at the botterm right corner, is that-!….A third sister! so the pinkie family expands, is this foreshadowing? Are we going to see an episode of Pinkie’s sisters? Yes for sure.

The song turns to a happier side when she wants to prove to everypony that she is still the best. We can all relate because who hasn’t felt their self esteem shot down because someone else was better than us? I know I have.

now for the Goof-off! Best face go!!!!

ooh~ Pinkie got the lead lets see Cheese.

oh he got out the mouse playing tuba!

okay moving on, and then we see this.

 In this we realize that she was caught up in her pride of being the best she forgot that its not all about her but for her friend Rainbow Dash.

When she is leaving Ponyville, which I have no idea why. she said whoever wins they get to plan Rainbow’s party not leave ponyville. Well, her friends come in and tell them that they are sorry and tell her that she and Cheese sandwich are both the best and that she should'ent think of her self less. and come in Cheese Sandwich!

I like this story of Chees'e past, where he was shy and had no friends, most of us can relate because I am shy too and I have trouble making friends but when we break out of our shell we can do great things. And my last thing.

Cheesepie, this is what I am calling the ship of PinkieXCheese, spread it around this had to be the name!!!!! CheesePie forever! I ship this so hard!. and enjoy some fan art below.

aww that’s cute isn’t it.

Now we have the third Key, the rubber chicken, I saw this one coming.

I gave this episode a 8/10

because it was relatable, the songs were catchy, I loved the polka and accordion and this is in my 3rd spot of top 10 pony episodes……and also cheesepie. Lets give a hand to weird al and really hope he comes back! we need more cheese sandwich!

anonymous asked:

What is your view on each of the generations show and toys? For an example, here is my view on G3 (G1, G1.5, G2, G3, G3.5, G4). G3 - Show: It needed some work, especially along the later years. Toys: They were pretty nice, and lots of them too!

G1 toys - The BEST toyline hands down.  Simple yet carefully crafted.  Magical, exuded quality.

G1 “Rescue at Midnight Castle” - Amazing animation, amazing designs for the ponies.  Very horse-like, yet at the same time appropriately anthromorhpic expressions, etc.  Amazing villain.  Megan didn’t suck.  The best MLP animated feature.

G1 “Escape from Catrina” - Pretty good, weaker animation than RaMC.  I didn’t like how Catrina “turning good” was handled. She’s this bold, independent person while she’s bad, and suddenly when she turns good she’s all meek and demure?  What does that say about the writer’s view of what makes a “bad” woman versus a “good” woman?  Why couldn’t she be good and still be bold?

G1 show “MLP ‘n Friends” and the movie - I hate Megan.  She is a total canon sue. The last time I checked the show was “My Little Pony”, not “The Adventures of Queen Megan, Great White Savior of Ponyland.”  Inconsistent and often sloppy animation. Also the baby ponies talking baby talk—WHY?  

The basic plots are often quite good, though, with good villains. Ponyland being turned to glass?  Good.  The heart of Ponyland being disrupted and magic going crazy all over the land?  Yes.  So it does have an awesome epic vibe to it. I just can’t get over the ponies needing a twelve year old to run their lives.  It’s kind of pathetic.

G1 show “MLP Tales” - MUCH better animation than “MLP ‘n Friends.”  Terrible male characters.  Ace is a jerk.  Teddy and Sweetheart are headed for an abusive relationship.  Snoozer plots in Boringworld.  Too bad, because this was the first show to really focus in depth on individual characters.  I know Sweetheart is a fan favorite, but I loathe her.  Patch is the best.

G2 toyline - I don’t like their faces.  Specifically, I don’t like their muzzles / mouths.  They just look half-formed and, as I’ve mentioned before, I like pony toys that have more prominent nostrils.  

That said, this was THE toyline for accessories, often producing individualized accessories for each pony.  The US releases were a blob of muddy pinks and purples, but once the line became European exclusive they started utilizing some great color combos.  

Their symbols are disappointing, though.  Not in content, but in design.  They’re usually monochrome and just seem a little “clip-arty”. Few poses and the poses are all rather “samey”.

G2 show - None.

G3 toys - Second best toyline, despite being the start of the stupid “symbols on only one side” thing.  NOSTRILS. YES. Their heads are sometimes a little large compared to their bodies.  I love their ears.  Awesome variety of symbols.  Good variety of ideas (Jewel ponies, scented ponies, etc) without getting too gimmicky.

G3 show - If you look at them as the tales of a group of desperately, falsely cheerful survivors of some unknown apocalypse, they’re interesting.  (Why the heck do the Ponyville ponies not know about the unicorn kingdom a day’s walk away? Because they can’t leave home, because of RADIATION.)  

But that is delving more into fanon than into the shows themselves.  As shows, they have consistent animation, great voice actors, and boring, safe plots.  Except “A Very Minty Christmas”.  I flipping love that one.  Minty is the best.  I still enjoy watching them in the background while I’m cleaning or something, but there’s just no substance.

G3.5 toys - No.

G3.5 cartoon -  They changed G3 Rainbow Dash’s voice.  For this, no forgiveness.

Newborn Cuties toys - NO.

Newborn Cuties webisodes - The quality is so low it’s actually amazing.  The voice acting, the animation, the “plots” … It must take some dedication to reach that level of suckitude!

G4 toyline - Terrible.  The designs which work so well in the cartoon do not work well in real life.  The ponies have about an acre of forehead, disproportionately large ears, and, again, “invisible nostril syndrome.”  Their symbols are limited by their tiny, tiny bodies.  On the bright side, the best designed pegasus wings of any generation.  On the minus side, stupidly short unicorn horns.  (Shorter than their EARS?  REALLY??)  

But the main problem with this generation is that it barely has any characters.  Mane Six, Mane Six, Mane Six … I get that they’re the main characters and that lots of kids will want them, okay?  But do kids really want eight different Twilight Sparkles?  Maybe they do, I don’t know.  I know I don’t.

It’s not just the lack of characters, either.  It’s also the lack of poses.  It is RIDICULOUS that there are only two “normal” (i.e. not Celestia / Luna / other special char) brushable pony modes—the “standing there” pose and the oh so exciting “standing there with one leg bent” pose.  To put this in perspective, G1 had eight poses by its second year and G3 STARTED OUT with eight different poses.  For G4 MLP to be this popular and have so few brushable molds … It makes no sense. Especially with the Mane Six focus, since that would be a way to make the ten million versions of Pinkie Pie less “samey”.  

(I should add that blind bags, while cute, are not “the real My Little Ponies” to me.  Just like “the real Care Bears” are the plush toys, not the PVC figurines.)

As if this was not lazy enough, Hasbro often reuses G3 Ponyville accessories for the line. Oh yes, Hasbro.  Don’t think I don’t recognize them.

G4 cartoon - The best cartoon series (although “Rescue at Midnight Castle” is still my favorite piece of MLP animation overall).  Great world building, great characters.  I do think they should move the ponies out of Ponyville and have them go on more epic quests, because the whole “learning Friendship Lessons in Ponyville” thing is getting kind of stagnant.  But still.  The best series, with extremely consistent animation.  The animation is not what I’d call beautiful—I don’t really think it can be, being made as it is.  But it’s very functional, which is more important.  I really appreciate that the ponies act and move like horses in this (using their mouths to pick things up, etc).

Equestria Girls toyline - Not just a travesty, but a cheaply produced, overpriced travesty.  Sad Monster High wannabes.

Equestria Girls cartoon - Haven’t watched it.  I’ve heard it’s good, but … I watch for the characters who are ponies.  Take away the “who are ponies” part and I have no interest.

So, sadly I’m having problems left and right since more than a week by now and I really wanted to cheer myself up with the best way I can express myself… Drawing! 

I hope somewhere this helps someone else too, you never know when someone is going for hard times. Remember always staying positive and do you’re best!
