The Descendant


People have asked if I accept "tips." Rather than that, please consider supporting my preferred charity, the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club.

    Steel doesn’t worry about a colt’s well-being. Railroad cars don’t have much concern for the bodies of ponies. But, despite the dangers, I wanted to be a railway pony. I wanted to be like Highball.  · The Descendant

Thank you so much. I do have one question, where do I go to upload my story? Never mind, I figured it out. Have a nice day/evening/morning/afternoon.

>>1779590 Fine with me. It is your story.

Definitely in agreement about the "pre-dreadnought" mixed-caliber motif, as it is certainly more "Steampunk." I'll consider a pure naval approach, but as all we've seen in the show is airships, and I have my own works that show ships and airships working interchangeably, I may take some liberties.

>>1778920 Hmm, not bad. Also, I think the poem is in Public Domain, since it is so old. I ORIGINALLY found it in a poetry book published in the early 1950's. In my mind, though, Equestria has a blue water navy, as well as airships. I like the thought of Equestria being predreadnought, but only by about a decade. The naval architects know that the mixed caliber gun battleship isn't the best, and are thinking about an "all big gun" ship. I love the thought of iron and steel leviathans cruising into port, or duking it out on the high seas. Of course, the armor would be improved by weaving spells into the making of the steel, making it far stronger than anything humans could make, but not invulnerable. They could take more punishment, but not too much more.

I'm in an odd place at the moment, but I'm hanging in there. I'm glad to hear you're doing well with your writing.:twilightsmile:

Dear Loyal Watchers, Interested Visitors, and Confused Passersby:

Doomed is an absurdist work that takes the modus operandi of being the discarded pilot of a new nature series hosted by a supposedly famed, award-winning naturalist who goes unnamed through the show. In this show, we meet such largely un-noted creatures as the Cube Fish, Inverse Hedgehogs, Coral Parrots, and others who all display unique evolutionary traits that have almost certainly doomed their species to a quick and merciful extinction.

Produced by a small Spanish animation studio, it won a bunch of awards in 2011 at animation conventions that I've never heard of.

I have watched the video about three times today. I don't really know why. I can't say that it is super-funny, but there are moments that keep playing in my head. I have always been a fan of absurdism, as those of you who follow my comedies know, and I can't help but wonder what your thoughts on the video may be.

So, Doomed... watch and discuss!

Stay Awesome,

-Desc
