    The 10th Anniversary of Friendship is Magic's Premiere

    I know I'm not as active here as I used to be but I felt that I had to at least make a little comment here about Friendship is Magic officially beginning its journey into ten-year status. I can't believe it's been ten years since Friendship is Magic started. Heck, I can't believe it's already been a year since the series ended. Does make me wish that we could have gotten a tenth season in order

    What Could Have Been: Doctor Whooves Seasons 3&4

    Told ya the wait wouldn't be long. Anyway, here I am to FINALLY close the book on Doctor Whooves once and for all by laying out the rest of what I had planned out for Doctor Whooves. Unlike with Season 2, I'm just going to keep my plans for Seasons 3 and 4 in one blog as I hadn't planned everything out in as much detail as I did the arcs of Season 2. But, still, there is plenty of content to

    What Could Have Been: Doctor Whooves Season 2, Arc 3

    Yeah...sorry for the long wait on this one. I really have no excuse for taking this long to get around to finally uploading the rest of my plans for what I originally had in store for my Doctor Whooves fanfic series. But I'm here now, for those of you who are still interested in learning about the future I originally had planned for a series I ended well over two years ago. Better being SUPER

    The Last Problem, the End of "Friendship is Magic", and Other Ramblings

    Hello, everybody. It's certainly been a loooooooooooooooooooooooooong time since I last made a blog post here. I'm not even sure how many people will read this since I've been mostly inactive here for so long. Don't worry, I've tried my best to get around to replying to PMs and I've seen all of the comments that come my way. But this site definitely hasn't been on my radar like it used to.

    Doctor Perseus Reviews: "My Little Pony: The Movie" *NO SPOILERS*

    Been a long time since I last wrote a review. For those of you who are still interested in that, I am planning on giving an overview of my thoughts on the second half of Season 7 once it finishes. For now, here's my thoughts on the highly anticipated MLP movie (spoiler-free since it just came out)!

I Gave In... · 3:28am Oct 5th, 2015

...and saw the leaked episode. :fluttershysad: Don't worry. I'm not here to spoil anything or even give my thoughts on it. Though the title of this blog might be a bit misleading. I didn't really give in but rather watched it for the sake of my sanity. Let me explain.

Due to some random clicking, I ended up in the blog list of an author here on FIMFiction who I used to follow. I'm not going to insert any author's name here but I will say that they are easily one of the most pessimistic reviewers I've seen on this site. I only originally followed them because I enjoyed reading their blog posts bashing the behavior of Chad Rocco (not going into detail about that drama again). But I can't recall them ever being satisfied with an episode. Even their positive reviews had this stank tone to them. Of course, we're all entitled to our opinions and I respect their opinions but there's only so much pessimism you can take before you're sick of reading it. So I unfollowed them and haven't given them a second thought until now.

When I stumbled across their blogs, I decided to curiously scroll through them and see how they were reacting to recent episodes. To none of my surprise, the pessimism was still quite apparent, even in the more positive blogs. I then stumbled across a short blog which discussed the episode leak. It was clear that they weren't fond of the episode and decided to just give a quick summary of what happened in the episode. They even had to add a snobbish "just saved you six weeks of waiting" note at the end. I realized this too late when my eyes focused on the blog and the damage was done. So I decided to watch the episode in order to get my own opinion of it so that I wouldn't have that pessimistic blog post banging around my head until the episode officially aired.

But I'm not going to say what I thought about it because, unlike the author whose name I shall not insert here, I respect that people may have differing opinions from mine and won't spoil anything here. I don't want to risk unfairly lowering or raising any of your expectations. You'll hear my thoughts on the episode, obviously, once it airs and it's time for me to write my review.

That is all.

You have my condolences good sir. :ajsleepy: Hopefully you still have at least something good to watch come Halloween.

Watched it not knowing it was a leaked episode until ModMCdl told me. Makes me upset but it was still great!
