My Little Pony: The Movie (no spoilers) · 12:52am Oct 9th, 2017

I really like it.

Granted, it wasn't perfect or amazing. But it was a solid movie, had some great stuff in it, and I definitely didn't almost start crying at that one part (you know the one if you've seen it). I give it a solid 8.5/10.

Go see it. Seriously, go see it in the theater.

One piece of advice I can give, though (and which isn't a spoiler) is to remember when this movie was written. I believe they first started work on it around the middle of season four, maybe even earlier.

Actually it's more like "From Machine, God". Or more loosely translated "God coming from a machine". It's to show how the actor posing as the god comes into the scene, rather than focusing on the machine itself. Sincerely a Greek :D

You have created two of my Favorite stories. I never knew how much I needed to see Twiysalis stories (Twysalis? Twisylis? ChrySparkle? IDK, the stories are great though)

Actually, the original inspiration for my name was 'deus ex machina', a Greek term for a story device used in plays. It translates to 'the machine of the Gods', describing how in plays, when the writer had written the characters into a corner, a literal machine would descend from the heavens and carry the hero out of whatever situation they were trapped in (all of that is a rough summary of the term, and no doubt riddled with inaccuracies. However, it's close enough to give you the idea).

My original use of the name was on DeviantArt, where, when I needed a name, I came up with Deus Ex Equus, or 'pony of the Gods'.

So when I needed a name here, Codex Ex Equus, or 'pony of the books', was the obvious choice.

Hey I have a question you name is that supposed to be a reference to he codex astartes.

Dude just saw the Royal Canterlot Library message. Congrats!:pinkiehappy:
