Do you really think you can fix the world when you can't even clean your room?

"Would It Matter If I Was?" Good Premise, Bad Story? · 4:38am August 10th

I tend to be almost mortally averse to the labelling of a story as "overrated." It's a non-criticism, because you're essentially saying a popular story doesn't deserve its popularity for whatever arbitrary reason, which is a frivolous point. Either the story is good or it isn't good; any comments about what it "deserves" is far too subjective to be worthy of discussion. Is Lord of the Rings overrated? To some, yes, to others, no. Focus on what it does right or wrong, nothing more.

Has the Show's Animation Gotten Worse? · 6:30am August 6th

Call me crazy, but has there been a downgrade in the animation quality ever since season 4? You look at season 4 (especially the two-parters) and it's just filled with amazing lighting, particle effects, good use of colour, and smooth-as-butter animation. Just look at this stuff.

The lighting from the windows subtly reflect off their coats.

Apropos of the Sinners - Update 6 · 3:02am August 4th

At last, AotS is 50% of the way to completion. I'm gonna be taking a teensy little break from writing, so Part V might take longer than expected to come out. Don't worry, I still plan to finish AotS by the end of the year. Hopefully. Possibly. Maybe.

Looking Back on the Show: Meghan McCarthy Edition · 12:43am August 3rd

I've made it no secret that Meghan McCarthy is (and always will be for the foreseeable future) my favourite FIM writer. While some writers are funnier than her, some write better villains, and some are better at handling continuity—McCarthy has the most heart. She's the one who's able to breathe a soul into these characters like no other, truly making them stand out. She's especially dear to me for her fantastic understanding of Twilight and Spike, their relationship together, and what makes

Season 9 finale trailer · 4:12pm August 2nd

You know, despite my exceedingly harsh criticism of season 9 thus far, I am sort of hyped for this. Maybe it's that last shot of Twilight crying that really sold me.

The voices sound kinda choppy though, like they stitched together several soundbites.

Remaking my most popular story · 2:07am July 31st

I've been thinking about my career as an author, here on Fimfiction. I may not be the best writer, or the most popular, or the most conscientious, but I am nevertheless proud of what I produce. I think the escalation in quality of my stories (at least that's how I see it) is a testament to my improvement, and it makes me happy knowing that.

Overall Thoughts on Season 5 · 10:38pm July 27th

Hey, you knew this was coming. I'm most likely going to be doing these for all seasons, and then finally, once I've watched the season 9 finale, I'll rank them in descending order, that is, from worst to best.

shit shit shit · 3:12am July 27th

Got a new job as a bartender, my friend is a manager there who wanted to hire me. I work there a bit, got drunk, etc. Now he just dropped all communications, not answering to texts, calls, nothing. He’s never done this before, so now I’m legit thinking he’s dead.

Overall Thoughts on Season 8 · 5:22am July 24th

Shoot, I made one of these posts for seasons 6 and 7, but no 8. Welp... better late than never, I guess.

Apropos of the Sinners - Update 5 · 10:28pm July 23rd

I'm pretty much finished writing Part IV, and now all that's left is polishing it. The good news is that I'm certain to make quick work of Part V; I'll probably be getting to it soon. If things go smoothly, I may even publish it by the time Part IV is over, which is August 3rd.
