    New objective

    I've always wanted to go to an Andrea Bocelli concert ever since I saw him and Pavarotti "live" on tv. I kinda forgot about it for a while, but...

    The fire has been rekindled.

    New Gunsmoke!

    Ye gods. That took some time.

    I think one of my biggest, most annoying weaknesses as an author is that when I'm nearing the end of the tale, I tend to lose the energy to write. Not the love for the story, mind... but, like Magical Trevor, Lammy, Super Big Mac and others could attest with The Empty Room, it's almost like I'm fighting against myself because I want it to continue, though I know it needs to draw closer to its inevitable end...

    This of course, is a pain in the ass because even if I know where I'm supposed to go—or even where the story has guided me—it seems like I need to force myself to let go of something I got addicted to somehow. I mean, this doesn't happen with all my stories, thankfully, but the ones I have spent time and effort and imagination and even some emotional attachment are particularly hard to push through at times.

    So, today's chapter is not the end, of course, but it ended up being a wall I had to climb to carry on. And I feel like I can now. I hope you enjoy it! Don't forget to leave comments there!

    A Hearth's Warming Tail

    No real spoilers here. Most other people have already covered those, but I did really enjoy this new episode! Well done show writers! I especially liked GothLunaSpirit's song. It was the awesomest. Additionally, it looks like Spike is over his crush on Rarity, which in my book is a bonus: he didn't even glance her way AT ALL. Well done, Spike!

    The Decline of the Alicorn

    Warning: Ranting

    We love MLP:FIM in some shape or form. From troll to earnest author here, it has brought us together as a community and inspired us to write thousands of stories, most of which are hosted on this site if they're written in English. And one of the aspects of the series which we see discussed and argued all over the place is the role and power of Alicorns.

    Which is, in my opinion, "The Thing The Show Writers Truly Fucked Up."

    The difference between Lauren Faust and the show writers is that Lauren understood what made Immortal, semi-god-like characters interesting.

    That a battle between to demigods a thousand years prior to the series had almost vanquished the world into Eternal Darkness stemmed from something as basic as jealousy over popularity is a trope we see appearing from as far as ancient Greece... where if a woman claimed to be better at sewing than Athena, she'd be put in her place and transformed into a spider for all eternity as a punishment.

    Lauren Faust translated this into the series in the traditional style of writing High Fantasy—Celestia (and Luna) are extremely powerful, wise, knowledgeable immortals that have ruled Equestria for thousands of years. Like Greek (and Roman), Nordic, Egyptian, etc gods they can be fooled... but woe to you, if you draw their ire.

    When Lauren left, the show fell into less capable hands in terms of world building and consistency. Less emphasis was placed on character development, and more and more episodes became simply random slice-of-life with no connection. To show an example, with very few exceptions, you can simply shuffle chapters from Season 3 and watch them and the order will still not matter.

    You see, she intended the series to be, well, a series. You know, the characters would follow a plot through the season, etc. That did not work for Hasbro and they turned it into what we have today. And I guess that's cool, but, they didn't adapt the characters to that format.

    That is why we keep getting the exact same lesson for characters repeated over and over with just a slightly different presentation.

    But, this blog is not about that. This blog is about what the show writers did to the alicorns.

    Alicorns, by Season 5 are basically nothing special anymore. They just aren't. Twilight's wings might be just made of paper. And Flurry Heart was the last nail on the coffin.

    You see, immortal gods/demigods/semi-gods are not meant to mix it up with your regular mortals because, by their simple status, they are OP. Celestia, like Helios, controls the sun. Luna, just as Selene, controls the moon.

    Now, you might argue (I'm looking at you, Municipal Engines), that Celestia is not a demigoddess, but the fact is that she is built as a character that fits the description. It's pretty obvious as well, that alicorns are not merely "horned pegasi" or "winged unicorns" just from the details discussed above.

    So, where did it all go wrong? It can't be blamed just on Faust leaving the show. She had a "Series Bible" in which the characters and themes were described exhaustively, and whatever Hasbro did, the writers are responsible for following up with consistency, development, and exploration of characters.

    So where did things go wrong? First with the "Hearth's Warming Eve" episode messing around with ancient history, but more importantly,  when Celestia battles Chrysalis.

    That's when shit hits the fan. (Both in the traditional sense of the expression and the fans of the series too.)

    Celestia should have never battled on the same level as regular ponies. NEVER. If she was to battle head on against Chrysalis, it should have been an epic battle, not Kamehameha vs Final Flash.

    Celestia is clearly not infallible, as stated above. She could still have been tricked by Chrysalis. But, with all my love to Chrysy, the bug shouldn't have been a challenge at all in a frontal confrontation. Had she tricked Celestia into giving up, or used more underhanded means to subdue her, the "Worfing" of Celestia would not have removed the aura of power an alicorn is supposed to have.

    This is truly when things go down. We see a character that once stood up one on one vs Discord (even if they needed the Elements in the end) brought down by a ray of love. And yes, I love the argument that Celestia let herself be beat to not kill everyone in the room, but let's face it, we all know deep down that argument is really BS we tell ourselves because it otherwise makes no sense.

    After Twilight became an alicorn, this is exacerbated to the extreme. We get that she's having a tough time, but between her normalcy and Tirek's battle and (honestly, pandering to whiny people that didn't want her to be immortal while her friends would pass away), it manages to completely strip away any mystique to being an alicorn.

    This is why having Luna, Celestia, Cadance AND Twilight amounted to cloud-blasting for the most part in the new series' opening.

    When you have characters like Celestia and Luna, you are not supposed to bring them down to the level of the other characters. They should be aspirations, inspirations, characters that go beyond the understanding of the common pony. Even Twilight at the beginning of the series only understood so much of her mentor/second mother figure... and it was that exact ephemeral grasp at understanding their limitations that made them interesting characters.

    Now, we see Luna and Celestia fight over the presents for a wedding for some dude's they had no reason to go to actually attend. We see them blunder around against the weather, or be tossed around like (let's face it) the Royal Guard. We see them unprepared to face an enemy they already know and defeated before in the form of Tirek.

    They become tools to make the bad guys "badder". And here's where the tie to High Fantasy is important. When you have a Gandalf Figure—if we want Celestia to not be a demigod—you have to take things into account. Gandalf being  Maia is a being of considerable power. He could have done a LOT more than what he did if he had basically released his power and gone full minor-Ainur, but his role was not that. His role was to guide. It's something that immortals do a lot in fantasy (and hell, even Christian belief)—they watch and do not interfere, or won't beyond their duties and personal agendas if they are more like classical gods.

    To keep the mystique of alicorns alive, Twilight would have had to undergo more changes than the show runners were willing to allow or not change her into an alicorn at all; the roles of Celestia and Luna should have been kept more mysterious and arguably, Cadance should have been either a unicorn or pegasus of  royal descent (like Blueblood) and Flurry Heart should have NEVER been born been an alicorn.

    There is no point in being (or being transformed into) an alicorn if the character is basically the same for all intents and purposes.

    Sadly, unless it's in fan fiction, we have to make do with alicorns being nothing more than a regular pony with an extra appendage.

    It's the Rainbow Dash one, right?

    After watching the little trailer I lost all interest in watching it, so I'll rely on you guys to tell me if it's worth it. Let me know if David Rapp wrote something that stripped RD of all her growth and experience so far, as the little preview we got seems to indicate.

    Hey guys, a couple of things you might want to look into...

    First of all, our very own bookplayer has written a blog on Author Responses to Criticism which you might want to take a look into if you're an author... like all of bookplayer's blogs about writing and being an author, it's very informative and well thought-out!

    Second of all, The Abyss has started a group called: Want Your OC Drawn Free? where he'll do raffles for precisely what it says on the label, go and check it out and see if it's your thing!

    Finally, work is being continued on the many stories I write, so fret not. A new chapter of one of them will be coming out soon.

    Wow, so, someone on facebook brought back memories with this one:

    I first watched this back in the 2000 (or 2001?) Anime Expo and it was awesome. (Especially that bit with Shinji's cassette player: it drew a laugh from everyone in the hall.) Back when I was doing some professional dubbing and working with others in TOEI's official Latin American site, and I was involved all sorts of anime projects, this became our personal hymn to joy for a while.

    Not a particularly meaningful blog post, I guess, but I just wanted to share this memory and a little context with you guys.

    Opinion, Objectiveness and Constructive Criticism

    There have been a few blog reactions and more than a few private fights that have found their way back to me for my blog on "The Law of Equivalent Exchange - Comments Version", which kinda promotes a defensive, non-ideal philosophy of—yes—Equivalent Exchange: You act like an asshole, you get treated as such. So here's a bit more in-depth look at what I was trying to angrily get at back then.

    Now, as I said on that blog, it's not ideal, and although it could arguably be said that by its very nature the person that ends on the receiving end of "I'll treat you like you treat me" deserves it in some fashion, it's not the right answer all of the time most of the time, and makes both parties look bad.

    Honestly, applying Equivalent Exchange all the time and to anyone that pisses us off does little more than infuriate everyone in return for a short burst of satisfaction and a long time of alienation, but the point of that blog is still valid. People try to push their ideas of what a story should be, instead of what it is. People on both sides come across as dicks. People confuse their place and what they're saying with fact or the role of some sort of superior to the author based on their opinion alone.

    This whole thing seems to stem from the lack of understanding of what is—and isn't—constructive criticism, and what is opinion. For this, let's start by understanding the strict definition of Opinion and Objectiveness




    a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.


    uh b-jek-tiv


    not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased:

    an objective opinion.

    In simple terms, for a clear example, opinion is what feeds the Upvotes and Downvotes in the site.

    It's the last thing you can have from being objective. While some people can make a conscious effort to separate their opinion from objectiveness, let's face it, we all just have one and react accordingly to it.

    Hence why, in my opinion, downvoting a whole story of over 70k words for random, occasional typos is a lousy reason to do so.

    But you see, that doesn't make it any less valid. Whoever is up-voting, or down-voting is sharing their opinion and whether they want to trick themselves into thinking that it's objective, it's validity to them is without question and therefore it is an honest upvote or downvote in that sense.

    (Now, if said person just downvotes everything in sight on the front page, uses voting as some sort of petty revenge, or uses alt accounts to downvote the same story several times, well then, not only are they sad, sad little people, but they are also going to get banned in some cases.)

    Whether the author agrees with the validity of the downvote or not is irrelevant.

    The issue with opinions, becomes a problem when opinions are shared in the comments and presented (and defended) as fact.

    To put it bluntly: They are not fact until confirmed.

    not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

    Opinions matter: They are the thoughts of those we the authors try to reach and tell a story to. An opinion can be valid, but it can also be erroneous and aggressive when it's used as an attempt to enforce a commenter's view of what is happening in the story onto the author or others, especially when ignoring the author's intent/response/clarification.

    You see, this is not the 18th century. Surprise! There is no death of the author in a site where the author actively interacts with the readers. There is always interpretation, for sure, but when you share that interpretation and the author blatantly says: "no, that's not it", then your interpretation is actually, factually wrong.

    Your opinion on whether the author actually achieved communicating what he/she supposedly wanted to say is valid however, and you are definitely, unequivocally, free to share that. But again, it's your opinion, and as much validity as it holds to you, it doesn't make it fact, nor does it make it more valid than the opinion of another person that disagrees with you, author included.

    Opinions can be used when writing Constructive Criticism:

    constructive criticism


    criticism or advice that is useful and intended to help or improve something, often with an offer of possible solutions

    But it's not the same as the opinion discussed above: being constructive means more than saying "this is bad". Blanket statements about aspects of the story, be them quality, characterization, grammar, etc. are not constructive criticism. They offer no way to fix what—in the critic's opinion—is wrong.

    This is where one thing I like repeating over and over comes in: projecting what you want a story to be is not valid criticism, nor is it constructive; it's a basic opinion that can be proven wrong by the author if he choses to address that and therefore making it invalid.

    When you write constructive criticism, you must first understand that you might be wrong. Just like with a personal opinion, however, a good constructive critic, will take into account a response and either admit things were misinterpreted and let it be, or offer advice on how to make that message clear.

    While writing constructive criticism, it's also important to understand the medium you're criticizing. There is—for example—no point in criticizing the lack of extensive world-building, secondary character progression and plot-irrelevant exploration when you're criticizing a short story.

    However, if in your opinion the author could achieve the message they are trying to convey better, then the moment you state that, along with suggestions on how to clarify, improve, and evolve their work... then you're giving constructive feedback.

    Tone has a lot to do with comments as well: Sweeping statements (when negative) only instigate a negative reaction. It really only makes you look like a dick, and again, being blunt is not the same as being a dick. There's a difference: being blunt is being honest and as objective as possible; being a dick in comments is using abrasive words and attitude in order to either impose your opinion, or somehow make the author (or other commenter) look like an idiot.

    And just because you do so, it doesn't mean the author has to use it. Even if you are their editor, you're trying to help, but help is not forced. If the author chooses to ignore your advice, well you did more than most other commenters did, and it's the author's possible loss to ignore it now or for future installments.

    In bullet points, Constructive Criticism:

    - Doesn't just happen because you say you disagree with something.

    - You have to actively understand what the author is trying to do to make your opinion and suggestions valid.

    - The more you understand the medium the author is using, the more helpful you will be.

    - And just because you wrote constructive criticism, it doesn't mean the author has to use it.

    Now, none of us are perfect, so it's inevitable that we all will share opinions that will cause others to react negatively. The important thing to remember, is that once all is said and done, we can look back and see, as much as we can, whether we are being objective and constructive or not.

    The title of the new episode...

    ...reminded me of Chage and Aska's "On your Mark!"

    Which, seriously... if you haven't watched... go. Now.

I've heard a lot of things...

I have marginally followed arguments about it, and honestly, what I will say below might have been said several times, but for now, bear with me.

I know that there are a lot of people angry about the lack of representation of our female bronies. And if you feel that way, you're right.

I don't dislike the documentary. Quite the contrary; I believe it went as far as it could with covering what it was aiming to cover: That the media perception of male bronies is erroneous. Whether they achieve that or not, is up to dispute, but I really believe that they never had the intention to go any deeper than media perception about the male aspect of our fandom.

Which sucks, mostly because that's not what we believed it would be about. I think, if we are to have a Brony Documentary, it has to be done celebrating what makes us strong: that we are inclusive. That we respect and appreciate all members of our community. From troll to outstanding bronies, we, in general accept who each of us are and what we love. Now, before you point out that we ban trolls for excessive attitudes, it is true that we do so, but, there has to be a limit on how much you can annoy people. If you want to argue this point, feel free to do so in another thread/blog, or PM with me, okay?

Anyway, back to the matter at hand.

Are female bronies, (or pegasisters) not appreciated enough? Yes.

Do people think that we, the male bronies, relish on the thought that we are special because we are males who like MLP? Yes.

Are we more special than our counterparts because of it? Hell eFFING no. Nope.

So, the documentary centers on media perception. Not in our history, or who we really are. Are we manly? Or are we Bronies?

I don't see "Brony" as a male word. Sure, the implication is there, but the meaning of it as we KNOW is not simply males. That's Fox News talking. Not Brony talk.

So, here's what I propose: Let's make our own, amateur Documentary FOR Bronies, BY Bronies.

Can we do it? YES. We can.

How? Simple. How many of us are in college? How many of us have editing skills? How many of us are studying communications, sociology, any sort of media studies? We can do it. We can use university cameras, we can cover the whole world BECAUSE we come from the whole world.

We have so much raw talent.

We have united as a community before, more than once to help any of us in need. Let's prove it. We can ask celebrities to help us, but we can do without. I KNOW you all have it in you. I know, IF we want, we can form some sort of cohesive project and make it work.

Are we going to let our sisters go away unsung and unappreciated? Hell no.

Who's with me?

I've never even thought of "brony" being strictly for guys, nor have I ever considered myself special for being a male audience member.   I mean shit, I'm pretty sure there are more guys that girls watching the show, so really that would make them more special than us.  I haven't seen the documentary, and I kind of don't want to because I'm afraid that they presented bronies as people who have thousands upon thousand of MLP dolls and sing all the songs on trains.

In short, IMO, the whole documentary was a circlejerk idealization of bronies.  I hate how they focused on fox news, there were plenty of other news outlets that ridiculed bronies.  I also didn't like how they painted conservatives as the enemy.  I am a conservative/libertarian and also a brony.  They completely skipped over and ignored the gritty, dirty origins and parts of the brony fandom (e.g. 4chan).  They painted the bronies like a bunch of "loving and tolerating" hippies.   "Ohhh~ just look at those poor little bronies they are misunderstood special snowflakes".

Don't get me wrong, I liked the documentary overall but that does not change my above opinion.

Edit: good luck with your documentary endeavor.

#30 · 174w, 2d ago · · ·

I'll help, as a female brony who dislikes the word Pegasister for those same reasons. I can do some art, write, probably voice act (never tried, but I can keep up a discussion with myself for hours, so why not?) , and don't have an Alicorn OC. I'm totally in.

So, what do you want me to do? Publicize, plan, draw? I'm off school for a week, so I've got pretty much almost nothing to do.

#31 · 174w, 2d ago · 1 · ·

Saberspark (creator of ballad of the brony) is already making a documentary that is going to do that and more. I saw the "official" documentary as a simple introduction. The brony cronicles (the name of the fan one) is suppose to look at the fandom more closely and more critically.

#32 · 174w, 2d ago · 7 · 3 ·

I don't see how female bronies don't receive the respect they deserve. I don't know about anyone else, but I can (in my own opinion) that the talent majority of females compared to males, only in ratio, is higher in the female range. There are more talented male bronies because there are more of them.

Point is. Women are better than men, and I don't care if anyone wants to try and argue this, I'll take it to my grave.

#34 · 174w, 2d ago · 1 · ·

I'm in.

One thing though... we should form a group for this and actually have some organization and formally, we should start AFTER season 3 because right now we don't know if Twilight is going to become Princess or not and how that might affect the community

a good example of a brony documentary is The Ballad of The Brony by Saberspark... its a one man work, but the editing is excellent and covers from Seasons 1-2.

And yeah, I never thought of "Brony" as a masculine term, despite the "bro" part. I just never thought about it that way.

So a documentary focused on the fandom, male and female, and how we act among ourselves? I could get behind this. I don't know what I'd be able to add to it, but I like the idea.

I'd be more than happy to help out in any way that I can!

The only help I can get you is bringing coffee.

oh, and I was under the impression that the term "brony" came about because the pony fad originated on the /b/ board, and b + pony = brony. I don't know for sure if this is true; either way I never considered it particularly exclusively masculine.

(Yes, I do like this idea, not as a snub or anything but I just love this idea in general and would like to participate if I can.)
