I'm a simple guy living in Europe, who loves to write once in a while as well as doing some drawings. I like to help other authors to come up with new ideas for stories as well as helping them out.

Pony Personality Test



Full personality description:
WOO! You have boundless energy and will take every single possible moment to exert it! Not only that, but you looooove to party, so wherever you can be that you can party and get down at, you will want to be! Your love of parties and laughter makes you a very fun pony to be around, because all of your friends generally have a good time when they're with you — as long as your overabundance of energy doesn't irritate them.

You don't just go against the grain, but you pretend the grain isn't even there, saying neigh to the norm and doing whatever it is you want to do, regardless of how silly it may be. Your carefree attitude is admirable in that sense, but you can easily get discouraged when people don't quite 'get' your sense of randomness and laughter. If you can't put a smile on a friend's face or if you disappoint them, you'll feel bad about it.

Despite your rather quirky nature, you often times do know exactly what you're doing, even if it may seem you're going about it in an odd way. You have a certain sense of things and it would be wise for your friends to believe you. You may be naive and carefree, but you're willing to try almost anything out, even if you're completely clueless on it. You're also a very creative pony, dabbling in songs, performances, and other creative ventures, while also coming up with creative solutions to whatever problems may be out there.


.....I'm pretty sure I'm more like Fluttershy, Although I do act a bit crazy from time to time.

sigh Look, I know it's been while since I've updated anything and I'm sorry for that. But it's not without good reasons. I'm still attending Uni and the tests and stuff have got me stressed, not to mention having to get a job, my father moving away to keep his job and me just wanting to spend time venting the stress by playing games instead of writing. Again, truely sorry about that. And it's with a heavy heart that I'm putting my stories on hiatus until futher notice or get the

You still alive over there?

1973177 Hello, and while I don't know why you weren't able to reply in the Forum, I think I can answer to your opinions from what I think; although I never played or seen the Hollow Fragment game ever, so I can't relate to your opinion until I do.

So, as to why the story was so rushed, this is all in my opinion as I have no idea what was the original plans for this novel and anime, and I don't think I will research on it, but I'm guessing this was more of a half made project, a story that was made to not take a very progressive story line, at least the beginning, as even the novels, which I'm still to yet read, hold not a lot of what happened in two years. But I like to think this is the MMO aspect that they were trying to follow, where things happen sort of quickly and then move on. Is a bad design for a story, but that's kind of what the anime is about, a game. I mean, it could also have been that this was the first arch, and trying to write a story which covered most of what happened in two years, in a game, would be kind of difficult without making it repetitive to some level.

Now, as to you opinion to Kayaba; I'm not sure if you say he is a week villain because he was beaten so easily, or that he wasn't that good of a character. If the former, remember that while he was the Admin of the game, he could still to choose to follow the rules of the games if he wanted, which he did when he let Kirito challenge him; but the only reason he really lost was because something happened which he didn't think could happen, which is basically Kirito not following the system and somehow surviving after reaching zero HP. And while Kayaba could have simply denied his defeat by commanding the game to so so, I think it was more of him keeping his word, and accepting defeat. Now if it was the later, then I got the simple answer; screen time. During the whole show, he only appeared in one episode as his true self, and we barely saw his motives and true intentions for the game, as well as personality; and when we next see him, its when he is revealed toto have been heathcliff all along, which confuses us as even then we saw little of that character as well, making it a total mess as to character development when it was revealed he was Kayaba. Now, if Kayaba had made little recordings that broadcasted across the game every so often, updating the players and mentioning events that occurred during the game, that would have developed his character a lot more, even if we didn't add more screen time for heathcliff.

I saw your rather insightful look at Kayaba Akihiko's intentions and motives for creating Sword Art Online on the ELO fan-group and seeing as I couldn't reply for some reason, and everyone I meet who watched SAO doesn't bother talking about it, I experienced the sudden urge to give someone who actually GOT the show my two cents.

to be perfectly honest, like most others, I loved SAO, the music gave me ear-gasms, the dub was great and the animation... absolutely phenomenal(dem boss battles tho :D), but there was always two nagging issues that stuck out for me, one being that the show was so rushed, the pacing was absolutely terrible, first a month then two years? yeah... I would have loved to know what happened in that time, that's the exact reason i'm reading the Progressive novels right now.
the second was Kayaba himself, he has got to be the weakest villain I have ever come across in a piece of media, I mean, sure his motives are insightful and deep but it borders the line of being stupid for me, that's why I hated the ending of the anime and the light novel, it was just handled so lazily, that's why, aside from the cheesy and sometimes cringey dialogue, I like Hollow Fragment better as an ending, in spite of Leafa and Sinon's sudden entrance, there should be a name for that, hmm, Deus Ex Booty Call.
Hollow Fragment as an ending was so much more satisfying than the original because, and some will disagree, there is actually development of characters here that I recognised and some pretty funny dialogue, throughout the episode "Moring Dew Girl" and the episodes that followed featuring Yui I kept thinking "she's going to ask the question, Kirito and Asuna will have to answer that question and it's going to be funny".
anyway, sorry for ranting, if you want to delete this, go ahead! I'm just glad I got this off my chest, but if for some strange reason you don't delete this comment I look forward to a response of some kind.

Thanks a ton for the fav! Be sure to leave a like if you enjoyed the story, it helps a lot! :pinkiehappy:
