I'm just some 25-year old dude from Canada hoping to become a screenplay writer one day. That's all.

    Hey, does anyone know if there's a right way to fan cast? You know, choosing actors/actresses who you wish could play a certain character in a movie or tv show. I'm a little unsure about a few things like should the actor/actress that's being chosen be the one who most resembles the character or has done more movies or something like that? And how do you know if the guy or girl you picked is too

    Hey guys, just wanted to share my thoughts on a few things in the season 8 premiere. First off, I must express how much I HATE that bastard Chancellor Neighsay. He's just a closed-minded bigot who doesn't believe in anything but himself. I say the only thing Equestria needs protection from are ponies like him.

    Equestria Girls: Give Flash Sentry a Song

    Hey guys, I was hoping you could sign this petition I'm supporting, it's about getting Flash Sentry his own song in a future Equestria Girl short or special. It's been going good but sometimes one or two people drop their signatures and it makes me sad when that happens. I'm hoping you can all sign it and maybe hopefully we can make this possible song a reality. Here's the

Urgent Blog: Helping Lyra Alluse · 11:31pm Sep 26th, 2016

For those of you who don't know her, Lyra Alluse is the founder of the Equestrian Writer's Guild here on FiMFiction. But more than that, she is probably one of the most good natured, sweetest, golden-hearted and compassionate human beings not just on this site but the whole damn internet.

That said, she and her mother, as mentioned in some of her latest blog postings, have been in recent times faced by life with a massive, we're talking gargantuan crisis that could very well land them not just homeless but even worse, could land Lyra unable to tend to her mother's needs. Her mother has developed Vikings Disease, which renders work virtually impossible for her and is without a doubt an excruciatingly painful daily ordeal.

I encourage you all to spread word of this, reblog it, make your own blog, etc. and help however you can, especially with sending her and her mother as much positive energy, emotional support, love, prayers, and encouragement that our communities here can muster!
For those of you who do know her and happen to read this, you already know how much brighter she can make things for all of us. So now let's try and get all of us to help make things brighter for her and her mother.

They will definitely need it and it is a given that it means the world to them! Please spread the word.

None of those things will actually help.

And I'm afraid I can't send any money her way.

Keeping people in good spirits in times of suffering and crisis is very important. They will very much help.

4228331 I appreciate people trying to help me out. But I actually never asked for any money. I just told people to send positive energy my way. So just send positive energy and prayers my way. :) And thank you very much.


Thank you for sending positive energy my way. It is very much appreciated. Keep my mom and I in your prayers. And stay awesome. :)

Thank you very much for making this blog post my friend. It means a lot to me. I hope that I can always be here to help you out in your time of need and be a friend to you in every way possible as well. Keep my mom and I in your prayers. And stay awesome.

4228548 Thank you very much, my friend.

4228554 Thank you kindly. It means a lot to me. :)

In some cases looking at reality is one way to help. And I suggest looking into support groups that grant help to those in need. I've suggested to LyraAllUse one option she could try, her and her mother will be looking into it soon.

So I encourage both of you to do the same. If you know of, or happen to come across, organizations that can and will help Lyra and her mother. Then please pass what information you can along to her.

4228331 Though that is true, do you happen to know of any groups or organizations that help those in need? Ones they could go to and do what they can to get some help to continue living where they are?

4228736 Actually they were rather negative about that, far more than most think. Though Stalingrad had not strategic advantage and meant nothing to Russia economically, or even useful as a supply point. Hitler only attacked Stalingrad because it was it was an attack on Stalin's ego, nothing more nothing less.

It was also one of only a few reasons Stalin needed to protect the city. Even if it fell, the city is so far into Russian territory that Hitler's forces would have been cut off. And quickly over taken once their supplies and moral ran low.

That and Stalin had one advantage that Hitler would have ran into, the Russian winter. Even if they couldn't push Germany back, all they had to do was hold out long enough for winter. Once it set in, they set fire to the city, poison any water source, and fall back.

This strategy had worked for them for wars in the past, and would have worked just enough for them to push back at a later date. Stalin had countless options he could have used, but chose to defend the city that had his name purely out of his own self interest.

4228828 You're welcome.

4228827 I like your way of saying yes. XD


Thank you guys for your kind words and support.

And if anyone has any leads on organizations that can help, be sure to send them my way.

My mom and I are going to check into a bunch tomorrow. :)

To be completely honest here, I have never even heard of you until this blog. But even so, after reading it, I am holding out my sincerest hopes for you.:fluttershysad::pinkiesad2::applecry::raritydespair:

4228936 You are very welcome. :)

4229091 Thank you for the kind, encouraging words. They mean a lot to me. Just keep my mom and I in your prayers and send positive energy/ thoughts our way. :)

4229094 Hey, anything for a friend of Hopeful Soul's.

4229101 It is very much appreciated. :heart:
