Sombra may have been defeated after his attempt to retake the Crystal Empire, but he was not destroyed. He still lives, and now he seeks to work his way into the mind of Princess Twilight Sparkle. As she struggles with the implications of her new immortality, she finds less comfort in the wise words of Princess Celestia, and is drawn to the dark magic of a fallen king.

Here's an idea. Me talking about the new episodes that come out. Okay, good? Go.
So Pinkie Pride, the episode with Cheese Sandwich AKA Weird Al. After simply watching the episode I don't think it had the same generally good feeling some of the other episodes the season had. I am referring to Pinkie Apple Pie and Three's a Crowd. Those episodes just felt happy and fun to watch. This one was average in that sense.
The music. I can't say I expected it to be a musical episode, but on the same hand I was not surprised. I mean, it was Weird Al, of course there would be tons of music. And that being said, I think that the music helped along the plot. If this episode, which is all about fun, was just spoken it would be dry and lacking the jovial nature it demanded. Unfortunately, it seemed to sacrifice quantity of songs for quality. While the songs may have been good, they did not have the same kind of ring to them as others this season. The fact that the characters just went in and out of songs made them lack the "Oh THIS is the big song" feel. Not to say any of the songs were not great just that they lacked any UMF. Compared to Magical Mystery Cure, where every song was big and significant and held it's place in the story.
Weird Al. He was spot on in this episode. His swings from serious to silly seemed natural and part of Cheese's personality rather than just being random. His back story, which at first felt like a cop-out to wrap up the episode, grew on me by the time it was over. Other than that, his songs were good (see above), his place in the story was solid, and his jokes were on par. That being said I think he is best left as a one-shot character. I don't see how he could come back in any meaningful way.
Pinkie Pie. Ho boy did she shine. I often hear that Pinkie is a tough character to write, and I can see that. To balance her zany antics without making her a gag character is tough, and this episode got it right. While I could drone on about it, the major moment was during the goof-off. I had a moment when I realized "Wait, by keeping Cheese Sandwich busy Rainbow Dash's party is not going to be as great." And then BOOM Pinkie realized that too, and forfeited. She made an adult decision, for the greater good of her friend. I was however looking forward to Pinkamena coming out, but I was sadly disappointed. I really wish they had that as Pinkie was waking out of town.
Boneless, the Key. Yeah, it was kind of just thrown in there at the end, like the other keys. Dammit writers, when will things start to come together? It's like they are trying to have a solid narrative, but doing it in the sloppiest way possible. They are just throwing in the narrative, in completely unrelated stories. You want to know what has a well connected narrative? Fucking The Equestria Games, witch I am eternally opposed to since the first episode they were brought up was Games Ponies Play, which I think is the absolute worst episode. Also sadkfhsdkcnwouef Boneless's dance was too perfect.
So overall, good episode. Not legendary like the season bookends, but out of the "plot" episodes it was one of the better ones. Out of this season, on the high end of the scale, and out of the series, average.

Well school is back in session for me, which ironically enough will probably mean i will get back to work on my story. During winter break i could never sit myself down and decide "This is it. This is when i get work done" But now with the formality of classes and the better atmosphere of the library I can find it in me to hammer out words.

Well through an unfortunate series of events I find myself banned from my favorite Minecraft server. And I mean perma-banned. No way out, need to purchase a new account to play kind of deal. And, needless to say I am left without much to occupy my time. However, as the title of this post says I will try to make this a good thing.
I will find time to continue work on my story, which has been nagging my mind recently. Also school is string up for me soon and this is just one less distraction i will have to deal with.
Well hopefully things will work out in the end. It's not like I'm hopelessly addicted to that server or anything. He, he.
dear god how will I last?
