    I'm late to the party, here, but Rainbow Rocks...

    I just finished watching Rainbow Rocks, and I have to write down my immediate reaction.

    That reaction is: I just watched Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny's kid sister movie.  It was freaking amazing.

    Actually, let me backtrack and bit and get the nitpicks out of the way.  As much as I love the Mane Six, the story here almost seemed hampered by them having to be the stars.  Sunset Shimmer was the heart of the film, and I think some of the screentime devoted to Pinkie Gags(tm) and Rainbow Dash being Rainbow Dash could have gone to her, and would have made the story stronger.  She was the most compelling character on Team Good Guys by a long stretch; in an ideal world, the writers would have been free to focus on her while relegating the primary girls to a secondary role.

    That said, the most compelling characters overall were indisputably the Sirens, who may have just unseated Diamond Tiara as Best Villain.  Kazumi Evans turned in a great performance as Adagio, coupled with her constant, awesome, "everything is going to according to my evil plans" expressions and body language.  Sonata was fun in the same way Brittany from Glee was (back when I could still stand that show); funny, oblivious, dumb as a rock and yet still kind of evil.    Aria... well, okay, maybe they weren't all memorable and compelling.  But I really liked her mane.

    But the music!  Especially the Sirens' songs.  Holy crap.  Maybe I'm just a sucker for female rock vocalists (one look at how my Pandora station has evolved will tell you that), but every time they started singing, they brought the house down.  Dark, sinister, creepy, yet kinda sexy.  (They're ancient succubi banished to an unsuspecting mortal realm by history's greatest wielder of the eldritch arts, so it's not weird to use that term.  Right?)

    I hope some intrepid writer's been giving some thought as to how the Sirens would have fit into the history of EQG-Earth.  They'd have been around since the viking age, after all.  I wonder what they got up to?  I'm already picturing a musical montage set to "Sympathy For the Devil."  (You can pick which version it is; I always preferred the Guns N' Roses cover; the Devil in that one sounds like he's having so much more fun.)  "I rode a tank, held a general's rank, when the Blitzkrieg reigned and the bodies stank... "

    And the ending?  Well, that's what primarily drew my comparison to The Pick of Destiny.  Because it was gloriously, goofily metal.  It would have fit right in with Brutal Legend.  I'm not sure that words can do justice to its glory, and so I'm not going to try.

    Anyway.  Done rambling now.  If you've been on the fence about checking the film out, let me give you my hearty recommendation.  They're showing it on the Hub Discovery Kids now, and it probably won't be long until it's out in retail form.  It's also, undoubtedly, available from other sources.  Go check it out!

    I'll be checking back in in about a week with another announcement.  See ya then, folks.

    Clip takes sixth!

    I'm thrilled and honored and all-around just kinda happy to report that my submission to EQD's "Outside Insight" contest placed sixth, out of 109 entrants!  And that means that someone with artistic talent and creative genius will have to draw a picture of a tentacled, amorphous mass of eyes and mouths getting a makeover from Rarity.  Schadenfreude is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

    I know there was some debate among the judges as to how literal the contest's prompt ("write a story about ponies from a non-pony's perspective") was to be interpreted.  I'm very glad to have managed to rank in the top ten despite my (apparently) loose interpretation of the guidelines.  Honestly, if I had taken it literally--had I written a story entirely about ponies, just told from a third party's perspective--I don't think I'd have even entered.  The little zap of creativity that hit me when I came across the contest might not have sparked if I'd felt more constrained in what sort of story I was allowed to tell.

    Thankfully, my Neutral Good alignment shaded my perception of reality, and so I sat down and wrote a story containing the line "because you're the harbinger of the apocalypse, sweetie," and people liked it!  Hooray for loose interpretations of the rules!

    Anyway, I'll probably go silent again for awhile until I can share with you all the undoubtedly awesome piece of artwork I'll be getting.  Keep on ponying, folks!

    Wait, what? Kavonde posted a blog? Who's Kavonde again?

    Hi!

    Um.

    Yep, I'm alive.  Please stop staring at me.  It's getting uncomfortable.

    So, yeah, this is the first time I've even logged into the site in over a year.  What brought me back?  Well, this.  See, I've still been lurking about the fandom, keeping tabs and hugely enjoying Season 4.  And something about this upcoming contest/writing prompt tickled my brain.  They want an outsider's perspective on ponies?  I can give 'em an outsider's perspective on ponies.

    Long story short, I'm beginning work on a new story for EQD's contest.  Hopefully, it'll get done.  Hopefully, it won't suck.  And maybe, maybe, it'll get me back on the fanfic writing horse.  (A-heh.)

    But enough about me!  Let's talk about other people who have been hiding out in their wooded internet hermit shacks!  Roy Hankins, the primary host of the Brony Bookclub, is booting the show back up, and he's got a trailer talkin' all about it.  It's been my honor to appear on the show several times, and I'm proud to be considered among the podcast's roster of cohosts.  A new episode will be coming soon!  Stay tuned!

    Anyway, I'm going to get to the writing.  Pony on, my friends.

    Equestria Girls!

    I've returned from seeing Equestria Girls, and I have written a review.

    In short?  It was actually pretty good.  I know, right?  I went in fully expecting it to suck.  I really, truly did.  It might not appeal to a non-bronies (or non-kids), though; half the fun for me was spotting all the little continuity gags and nods to the fandom.

    Also, I kind of want to write a "Pinkie Watches Paint Dry"-style story about Trixie and the damned vending machine.  She never leaves it.  Perhaps it's the only thing that understands her.

Following the events of "The Strange Destiny of Prince Blueblood," our semi-hero's life has been flipped and turned upside down.  Despite his attempts to start over fresh, however, his past—both recent and distant—keeps coming back to haunt him and the ponies he cares about.

HA. Now i can finally find out who he is dating, not that open ended crap you threw at me before HAZA i say. Have at you! :moustache:

Aww, and I was hoping for Rarity x Blueblood. Oh well, I still enjoy your stories. :raritywink:

Oh by the way I really don't read grimdark.:twilightsmile:

#7 · 120w, 2d ago · · · The Prince Gets Worked ·

Ah, what a way to end a chapter. Good thing three is out

AHHHH TWILIGHT, BOOOOO.... i was hoping for Derpy x Prince.... Sigh... saih la ve  i will follow as always i am always a Fan of the prince.

There are far to few twiblood stories and I love that this has it. Keep it up.:yay:

That beating was downright brutal to BB. Hope the karma fairy catches em and gives them a good talking to. Though to be fair, their fathers or little sister or something cliche like that was kill or something by the undead and reanimated in front of their very own eyes. So they have to the right to be mad, but vengeace is never the right way (according to comics). But one question. Why was it only stallions and not mares in the beating too? Just thinking PC.

Good thing there's a spell for everything. Hopefully healing too.

#11 · 120w, 2d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Job ·

>>833411 I was already there when he burst in on Cheerilee's class to tell her he got a job.

>>833411

Yes!  I have caused actual physical harm to a reader.  My work here is done :trixieshiftleft:

>>833882

There's actually a non-sexist reason for that, don't worry.  It'll be addressed as the story goes on :twilightsmile:

>>833500

Honestly, I just couldn't find a vector image of Pinkie looking angry besides that one.  The banner's a placeholder I threw together; I'm hoping to get an actual artist to do something for me on this story.

>>833442

:unsuresweetie:

I really wanted Twilight x Blueblood.

Just to piss Shining Armor off. Hate that guy.

That title picture is the funniest thing I've seen all day.

JAG

Okay, good start. The cows want hazard pay, Blueblood becomes a farmer, and now he's been beaten to a pulp by an angry mob. Probably not for the first or last time.

And it seems you are going with TwiBlood, after all. Hmm. After some consideration (and the hilarious book argument scene) I think I might just be okay with that. But if Blue breaks the Best Pony's heart, the fury of a thousand Fluttershies shall be unleashed upon him. :flutterrage:  

Thumbs-upped and Tracked.

>>834058Let me guess ,the other pics had either Bloody Pinkamina , or pinkie not even angry,just assuming from personal experience.*shudders from memory*:pinkiesick:

To Those who beat up Blueblood:

Anyway, excellent chapter, with the beginnings of TwiBlood? Or BlueLight...

Eh, I don't know official shipping names.

Either way, keep it up.

Lol.  Awesome story, again, Kavonde.  I've read from the first chapter to here, and I can't wait for more!  Blueblood, you have become my favorite stallion.

#19 · 120w, 1d ago · 2 · · The Prince Gets Patched Up ·

Holy crud! I just relized how ironic this whole situation is on a meta level. Here we have BB beaten up really badly. Now on many occasions, people would welcome such a beating on this level happening to him (just for being mean to Rare) in any other fan work. But now that it finally happens to him after indirectly causing an apocalypse, we feel bad to the poor guy and can't help but cringe. Shows how likeable this guy can be if written right.

I do sense a golden age for Blueblood fanfiction wise also. Nowadays, I'm seeing him painted in a more postive note. I'm liking that. Outta the way Gilda and Trixie, BB's getting some stories now.

>>836536 Sparkleblood Duh

Also, I guessed It was Twi x Blueblood in the last cjapter of the last fic in this series :P

Wow... Don't mess with Ponyville.:pinkiegasp:

Poor Prince Blueblood...  He deserves some measure of beating after what happened, and even he has thought so in the past, but not to THAT extent.

First, also great chapter blue blood is an awesome character and you do a good job writing him after his breakdown in your earlier story :yay: I prefer redeemed blueblood than evil or idiotic blueblood

Oh no!:raritydespair:  BB's new friend!

Okay, there's a difference between hating someone and taking your anger out on a poor mare because you don't like that someone.  Those... those...

:twilightangry2:

Oh, they better pay...

Tracked... I really need to know how this is going to end!

THERE WILL BE BLOOD BLED IN REVENGE FOR THIS! :twilightangry2:

JAG

All right, so we got a mystery on our hooves. Somepony (or non-pony?) is out to get Blueblood, and we now know that they'll take down anypony who stands up for him, too. Poor Cloud Kicker. Can't wait to see the bastards hang for that. Also, we can probably rule out Sawtooth and his contractors. Even ignoring their claims that they didn't jump Blueblood, they're the obvious suspects. And I have a feeling that this thing goes a lot deeper and darker than a few vengeful construction workers. Maybe Tyranny is involved, somehow? Bending people to his will is his whole shtick, and we know he can project his will onto other people like he did with the Cadance construct thing. Maybe part of his mind escaped imprisonment, and he's weaponizing ponies to take his revenge. That's my theory, for now.

Also, BlossomBlood? Huh. Didn't see that one coming. And Twi isn't taking it well. I expect war to be declared, shortly. :twilightangry2:

Finally, Cheerilee and Mac are having problems? Hmm. I'm guessing Blue staying with Cheerilee has something to do with it. Also, drunk, party-mode Cheeriliee is Best Cheerilee. :rainbowlaugh:

>>846342 I think it's more interesting if Tyranny isn't involved. If it's just others feeling strongly, on their own, that Blueblood's crimes warrant this, and that anyone siding with him deserve the same.

Nooooooooo not Cloud Kicker! She's too awesome!

So Blossomforth gets pissed sometimes? I'll bet this will be one of those times. Both she and Big Mac are gonna go Liam Neeson on whoever is responsible.

So if it ain't Mr. Contractors. Then who can it be? Dun-dun-dun?

And Blueblood and Blossomforth.

M. Night Shaymalan: What a twist!

So would that be Blueblossom then or something? Blue can be a color for blossoms right? Curse not knowing my herbology or whatevs.

YAY NEW CHAPTER

Hmm, been a few days since I replied to comments!  Let's see, here...

>>834209 >>835125 >>843483

Mwahaha...mwahahahaha...MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! :pinkiecrazy:

>>836536

Somewhere, in some universe, Lyra sees that picture and freaks the hell out.

>>838372

Yeah, I've gotta say, between "The Blueblood Chronicles," "The Best Night Ever," and my stories, he seems to be getting some love.  Maybe the writers will even give him some actual development in season 3?

>>845823 >>845980

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! :flutterrage:

>>847239

Sure, a blossom's just a generic term for a flower, and I've seen plenty of blue flowers.  Although I don't think shipnames necessarily have to make sense.

#32 · 119w, 5d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

Ahem... FIRST!!

Ooh, the plot thickens... and both Shining and Blue will HAVE to interact, won't they?  :ajsmug:  Oh, I wonder what will come of that, or if Cadence will ever come up in a conversation?

#33 · 119w, 5d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

Well, interesting turn.

Also, seems to be a bit BluebloodxHarem right now. Or just more than one potential love interest.

As always, looking forward to the next chapter.

#34 · 119w, 5d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

I would like to say 'the plot thickens,' but it seems I was beaten to it.

This is getting good, attacks, love triangle-ish thing, Shining Armour seemingly more agressive than Twilight remembers...

I can't wait to see what comes next.

#35 · 119w, 5d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

very interesting story I cant wait to read more

#36 · 119w, 5d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

Still voting for Twi x Blue, just to piss Shining off.

#37 · 119w, 5d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

Get beladda the cow into it.

#38 · 119w, 5d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

BlossomxBlue FTW!!!!!

#39 · 119w, 5d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

Poor twi, she's got it bad for blue.  Hopefully it'll all work out in the end though

#40 · 119w, 4d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

Shining armour seems to have taken a few cues from jack bauer.

#41 · 119w, 4d ago · · · The Prince Gets Worked ·

metaphorical hat in hand
Whoops!

#42 · 119w, 4d ago · 1 · · The Prince Gets Worked ·

>>857731

Dammit, Lyra!

80's Cheerilee is best pony.

#44 · 119w, 4d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

So, it looks like maybe a big Bank is involved after all! :trollestia:

Cloud Kicker really should remember what happened to the last pony she banged in the hospital.

Wait.

THAT'S IT! Cloud Kicker is secretly a femme fatale assassin!

The pairing is BlueBlossom?

...

...

...

Please; continue.

#47 · 119w, 4d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

Hmm. The plot thickens, indeed. I have some very vague ideas as to what's going on, besides the possible Tyranny thing, but I'll hold off explaining them until more evidence emerges.

#48 · 119w, 4d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Job ·

Pinkie Pie "glaring daggers?" Rarity resorting to petty name calling? Do you really hate Blueblood so much that you feel the need to have other character go wildly out of character just for the sake of being mean to him?

In particular, with Rarity, he has a totally valid point. She was chasing after his crown and the status associated with it. She knew nothing about him other than that he was a prince. That was kind of the point of the gala episode: that fantasy-driven Disney-esque "marry a prince" fantasy is basically stupid. I think it's pretty reasonable for Blueblood to call her out on it.

Anyway, even if Rarity were mad I think she'd be far more subtle about it that yelling insults at him. And Pinkie being mad doesn't make such sense at all. I've just about come to expect that the whole point of these stories is just to bash Blueblood for the sake of bashing him, but at least keep the other characters in-character when you do it.

#49 · 119w, 4d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

Twilight's awkward advances and blatant jealousy are so cute! :twilightblush:

Oh, and please correct the spelling of "hors d'oeuvres" immediately.

#50 · 119w, 4d ago · · · The Prince Gets a Clue ·

>>861299

Did you read "The Strange Destiny of Prince Blueblood?"  Rarity and Pinkie Pie have more recent reasons to be mad at Blueblood.  (In addition to the town being nearly destroyed by him.)

>>861694

Google failed me?!  Inconceivable!
