Oh, I just write the depression fics because they're the easiest to write. I had a hell of a time writing even Not Worth A Bit, and it's still barely half-decent. But I can churn out depressing fics like it ain't no thang.

As for turning my life into a story... It'd be the type of story I wouldn't want to read, where the main character thinks about committing suicide but doesn't because he's too depressed to even summon up the energy to do it.

I don't know about anyone else, but finding religion would make me more likely to indulge my suicidal side.

For some reason, looping this has always made me feel better.

What kind of religion teaches that? I'm interested to know.

I'm only trying to give him an option that he possibly hasn't had yet, besides genuinely caring for him.


This should help otherwise as well.

How many pony related memes do exist any way? I really do wonder how many are ours, and not just spin-off memes.

Hehe. Already got religion.

Interesting fact. Religion comes from the Latin word ligio, 'to bind'. It's the same word that lictor comes from. The lictor was a state-appointed bodyguard for high officials. Fun stuff.

Incidentally, it has helped me in the past to think of it this way: Yes, suicide may seem like a "better" option in the short run. In the long run, however, there is an infinitely greater chance for your life and circumstances to improve if you are alive. If you're dead, you're dead.

Posting as I watch, again.


Strawberry Shortcake is worse the more I see of it. It's good good animation, voice acting, and actually some nifty music, but... fails at getting across its themes. Not very good at putting forth believable conflicts.


Anywho...
Spoiler:

Big Mac can drag a house, but not carry a cake?

Even if it is heavy for whatever reason... something wrong with a cart? Would be a lot easier to balance...

---

Pony Joe new best pony.

Current theory: Pinkie bumped it in the dark and caused the damage.

---

Pinkie reads sci fi novels? Well, sci fi for Equestria, anyway.

New theory: Rainbow Dash.

---

Those bakers need to wash up after meals.




Well that was... average! Not too many complaints... there's Pinkie's spy themed accusation... thing, due to technology stuff, but I'll accept it being some sci fi thingy, as previously mentioned. Also some really, really wacky animation. Eww at the donkey's cheek.

Everything was decidedly adequate, otherwise. Too much reliance on absurdity = humor to make a good comedy episode, but didn't completely fail at making me laugh either. Moral worked just fine. So yeah.


EDIT: Actually I could probably complain about Fluttershy's characterization. I can conceivably see her eating the cake, but she would've been pretty wracked with guilt over it. Applejack might've worked better, but then they'd have her bad liar tendencies to deal with. Rainbow and Rarity worked fine though.

A small scene where those 4 get accused too would've solved any characterization hiccups, I think.

EDITEDIT: Were I to have written this episode, I'd of had Pinkie focus on one pony for her baseless accusations (and then the other 3 be the actual culprits). Could've made for some deeper conflict, and given a more realistic approach to the moral (as people DO tend to focus on one person if they get overzealous like that). For bonus points, it'd be Fluttershy she harassed while the other three hide (badly) and Twilight has to gather the evidence to make them confess (much like how it actually happened). Bakers would be unchanged, pretty much.

but oh well~

You know how your fingers can curl around and press against your palm, and how that's pretty much how humans grip stuff if you don't count the thumb? Consider the hoof one giant finger. It can do the same thing. IRL and, now, in-show apparently.

Hmmm... I loved the episode. Guess I'm easy to please!

Spoiler:


Pinkie needs to be in a bowler.... foreeeeevvvveeeeer. So. Much. Adorable.

Fantastic job with the chefs. The Julia Child mule was brilliant.

Twilight as Sherlock... I can die happy now.

The changing animation styles for Pinkie's different cake thief theories was brilliant. Have to say the griffon's was my favorite.

"Who did done do'd it"? I love you, Pinkie-isms.

Is this the first time pegasus feathers have been confirmed?

All in all, a fun, lighthearted episode. Really wish AJ had been given some more involvement, but seems she's low pony on the totem pole recently. Pretty much my only issue with the episode.

I don't think Fluttershy was too out of character. She's been portrayed before as relatively impulsive and lacking a bit of self-control. Ex: trying to keep a parasprite, stealing away the god-queen's pet, etc. And her reaction to being found out fit perfectly with her guilty nature.

Sword was not the first weapon we've seen, don't forget Spike's imagined lance in the diamond dog episode.

It wasn't a matter of the first weapon seen or mentioned, it was the first that a pony was wielding.

Fencing swords in Cutie Pox.

As for the ninja scene, kinda missed potential by having her wield it with her hooves. Would've looked a lot more awesome in the mouth, like fanart usually depicts swords.

Nothing stood out too much, but it was certainly a good episode. Top 33% of Season 2 for me, anyhow. Though it would have been rather funny if it had turned out to be Luna.

Not much to say about the episode itself, it was pretty good. My pillow took roughly 5d6 bludgeoning damage when the
Spoiler:
hilarious black-n-white silent movie segment started, followed by Bond and either Kill Bill or Samurai Jack (Samurai Jackass?)
, which boosted the whole thing up and kept it there until the end, so very good overall.

In other news, I literally only just now realized why Pinkie Pie is omnipresent, random, and variably omniscient. It's because she is an irrational, transcendental constant.

Agreed on that. The various Pinkie-sequences were the main thing that put it into 'A' territory for me.

Hypothesis:

Bowler-Pinkie is best pony. Followed closely by "femme fatale" mane Rarity. And with Sherlock Twilight following up third. Donut Joe gets honorable mention for Evil Donut LaughTM.

Discuss. I warn you, I am armed with a keyboard, alcohol, and a complete lack of the good sense to not use the two at the same time.
