The Ponies Are Iffy

Short version: Hello I am a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and it is a 'racially' problematic show.

Sorry for the maaaaany grammar issues with this. I'm just rambling.

EDIT: Fixing grammar issues. Excuse: I was half-asleep and depressed when I wrote this. I'd also like to point out that LOTS of shows and cartoons, those I have watched and haven't, most likely have -ism issues. And I'm going to call those out too! WANNA FIGHT ABOUT IT? 8D

Yeah, I'm talking about this. I feel I must. )

my but it's dusty in here

Ironically, my life has been hectic enough to warrant a post, but I just haven't...

So anyways HEY GAIZ~~
Events have been going down:
1) Got winter job.
2) No longer work at said job.
3) Back in school to finish last four credits.
4) BIRFDAE
5) PRETTY CURE!! MY LITTLE PONIES!! IT'S A GIRLY GIRL'S DREAM COME TRUE~

I'll try to geek out here more often, if only for the memes.

I've gotta apologize

Now there are two main things I have to say I'm sorry for.

1) (the real life one) Sorry for not communicating with you guys more~ The internet is no excuse 'cause I could probably find a net cafe. My computer problems aren't an excuse 'cause I think I just need to re-calibrate my battery. Most of you guys know I have communication issues, but I'm sorry anyways and I'll try to contact you more. <3

2) (the fandom one) You know when you understand something but it still doesn't always get through? I believe that creators shouldn't have to answer to what fans say, because as a creator, I want to put more of myself versus more of somebody else. But then I go and say something else.

CLAMP-wise I'm not taking back everything I said, but I am sorry that I expected some explanation. )

I still think the plot pile-up was a bad idea and that they've been relying too much on page spreads. And I wish Nekoi would shorten up those legs. lol! Meme post next~

This just in...

The sky is blue.

The Earth is round.

And CLAMP has been kidnapped by skrulls/white martians.

News at 11.


Kay, seriously, I just don't understand this ending...at all. Yes, yes I get the gist of it but- Look, TRC started out as a fun romp thru most of the universes CLAMP has made. Now look at it. Compare this ending to CCS ending, not counting the epilogue. THAT'S AN ENDING. A loose one, but an ending. TRC didn't end. It just. STOPPED.

So I guess those crazy fanboys (on that one forum I can't remember) were right. The last good CLAMP series was probably X1999 (something that I didn't read, so for me it'd be Angelic Layer) and even that's iffy. *sigh* Someone please stop me from reading Kobato. God help me, I'm starting to like that one a little and it's slowly turning towards the CLOW REED ARGHGLEFLAGLE.

So. I really hope that this is some kind of 'social experiment' done by a concern troll.

Words couldn't describe how pissed off I will be if it IS true. All I can say (without breaking my keyboard in anger) is this:

I'M TOTALLY CALLING THAT SOME TROLL OR MISGUIDED SOUL WILL POST A SECRET ON F_S SAYING HOW MUCH THEY LURRRRVE THE CAST CHOICES AND HOW THE PEOPLE THAT OBJECT ARE THE RACIST ONES.

...

WITH IN TWO WEEKS OR LESS.


Totally called. Too. Fuckin. Easy.


Kay, now to ...ugh final homeworks. D:

Hey two Chocolate Factory movies! Oh and the Avatar finale

They were playing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Family Channel. (I'm one of those weirdos that liked both movies.) Watching them both, though, made me realize that if they switched the titles around, it would have fit more. Come on, the first one was waaaay more about Charlie and vice versa but that's not that important. Let'stalkabouttheAvatarfinale! =D

I'm just going to get something out there. It WAS NOT perfect.

Fanfiction ponderings...

And for once, it's about my own ideas!

Calling all CardCaptor Sakura manga fans:

Help me out. )


Kay next thing is for any Xiaolin Showdown fans and/or people who know a lot about East Indian culture.

So...I has a fan character. )

Well that's it. If you know any comms that would be better to ask these questions at, let me know.

Wow, that was a mouth-full. I mean, a hand-full...whatever.

EDIT: BAH. Might as well make this public; it's not that private anyways. I was being a bit paranoid for nothing...and any passers-by could lend me a hand.

RANDOM MID-NIGHT THOOOOUGHTS.

I stole this one from EVERYBODY.

You Are an Orange

You have a zest for life, especially for anything colorful, wild, or dramatic.
You have a unique take on the world, and you're not afraid to be a little funky.

You are a bit reserved toward people who don't know you well.
You have a thick skin, which can protect you from anything that goes wrong in your life.

Once someone does get to know you, they totally get and appreciate you.
Your friends see you as a bright person with a refreshing take on life.


I kinda don't like oranges. No wait, I just don't like peeling them. I wonder what that means.

So this is what crap feels like.

I'm sick and a bit high on cold medicine. And drowsy. These are all excuses, though. There's no excuse for me making these stupid things.

Spoilers for Cardcaptor Sakura...but seriously it's been out forever man. )


And I made this one a little while ago. Hooray for obscure CLAMP characters!!

David Bowie...riiiiight

Fanfic ranting is kinda like eating potato chips.

Dear two writers of fanfics that I like,

Author#1, it is not necessary to label scene cuts to the name of the character who has the pov of said scene. Really. You don't have to. Especially since, well, sometimes it turns out that the character DOESN'T have the pov for long. :/ Stop using this. Your fic is not a screen play and shouldn't be since you're on ff.net.

As for you Author#2, I just found your fic and the concept intrigues me. However, I'm starting to worry when you say things like "well, he'll have a backbone and is not a whiny momma's boy in THIS fic" (hint hint to the character I'm talking about). I mean, yeah, he is a whiny scaredy cat but that's one of the things that endears me to him. How about this, you SHOW me HOW he's become this way (even if this is an AU) instead of telling me then we'll see how much he's changed. Character growth/change can be a nice thing but starting out with a cardboard cutout of a pre-made character and inserting super-special-awesome traits is tittering on the lines of OOC-ness and Gary Stu-dom. But hey, this IS the first chapter, so I'll cut you some slack. Just keep him HIM, ya know.

Kinda liking ya,
abyss =;o

Dear self,

Do your homework and STOP READING RANT COMMS FOR THE LOVE OF CREAM PUFFS!!

Love and Disappointment,
Ebony =;[

P.S. If you're seriously thinking about making a fandom shout out comm, then just do it. Remember that one comm you said you were going to do and never did? Well, now it's too late for that one, isn't it! GET ON THIS ONE! GRRRRR.
