I had to do a factory reset on my computer.  I lost nearly all my bookmarks and a couple username/passwords for some sites. 

At least I got my computer back to running properly….

Well you’re the genius that didn’t back those up.

Siren's versus Sunset, again what? Sunset was, nothing but the most cardboard, cliched "Alpha bitch" you could get with, no motivation for anything beyond "She's a bitch" and whose plan, made no damn sense at all. Whose scheme only ever worked or came close to working because everyone else at the school is an idiot. Sirens. Had reasons for what they wanted, were actually a threat. Damn near came close to winning. And didn't lose through their own idiocy. Better on every level to Sunset.

crossreviews:

Sunset’s motivation was utter defiance to Celestia trying to limit her goals. I see your point, though.

The Sirens were your typical “I want control over all of the citizens of this land” villain. Add in the feeding off of energy of others (already done by Tirek and Chrysalis, and by Sombra if you think about it), and you see that they’re also pretty generic. Not bad, but not spectacular.

If this does get made into a series, I’d want them to become recurring villains. They have a nice dynamic.

But it was part of who and what they are. they aren’t ‘ponies’ they were clearly some other entity, more like a Windigo. They were something fantastic, magical, not, just some high school alpha bitch with substitute mommy issues. Who was stupid enough to think she could take over an entire nation ruled by nigh immortal demigods that control the very sun and moon. With an army of teenagers. When her doorway TO said world would only allow a few at a time through, and all three of said goddesses were sitting right in front of it along with five of the six greatest heroes the nation has.

And holy hell did they nail that otherworldly, ethereal, haunting Siren vibe. They felt like something, unreal. Something more then just some petty teenager. Something larger.

How? how can you? EQG failed on almost every possible level a film can fail on. Pacing, all over the place. Characters, either generic one note bland cliches, or cheap knock offs of other, better characters. Narrative, full of plot holes and twists that make no damn sense. Finale, again giant ball of WTF that makes no damn sense. RR, none of those issues, at all. And better in, every conceivable way to the mess that was the firs one.

My biggest issue comes from the fact that RR lacks a sense of structure in the lesson it’s trying to teach. It’s mostly the story of how Sunset fully comes to be respected by the others, but her presence is so small before the climax that it feels weightless.

1. What? No seriously confused about that ‘structure in the lesson” bit. It is first and foremost a story. Any ‘lessons’ ‘morals’ anything… grows from the story itself. But the story forms the base.

2.It’s not really about others respecting her, as it is HER shaking of the remaining self doubts about her old life.

Both her and Sunset are the leads in this movie, but neither one steps up to the plate. It’s a dual performance, but I would have preferred focusing in on one of them, like in the first movie.

Not really, but you get more into that later anyway.

But, if it really wanted to be about Sunset cementing her relationship with the others,

Again that wasn’t what it was about. It was her dealing only with her own internal issues about things. Including dealing with the distrust the others still had for her. But more for how it effected her, then for getting them to stop.

but that could also be another problem of mine. I’m watching RR the same way I watch an episode of FiM. An episode of FiM focuses in on one, maybe two characters at the most to develop, and has everything revolve around those characters.

Best Night Ever

Trade Ya

Castle Mania

Heaths Warming Eve

Bridal Gossip

There are plenty of ensemble based eps of the show where it’s about them as a group or about all of them doing stuff. So yes, this does seem to be, assuming the story was trying to do something it wasn’t, and faulting it for not doing that things it was never trying to do in the first place. It was always about all of them, though with Sunset as more or less the viewpoint character. Like a lot of Season 1 eps that had Twilight there, but not really the focus of the story, since we were supposed to be seeing things through her more or less.

Equestria Girls had a slew of amazing character moments with Twilight and Spike, but was brought down by a lot of little things like the unnecessary romance subplot,

Or, some pretty decent scenes, and a ton of horrible or idiotic or just plain nonsensical stuff. Like said BS romance, and not being able to go two scenes without jumping through another plot hole. And almsot nothing in the story itself making any sense. Some good individual scenes, but the entire narrative holding them together was a tangled mess.

so it’s just remembered as pretty nice.

Not by many I’ve seen. More, “OMG WTF were they thinking?”

Also, the rest of the Human Six have a lot more things to do in this film, which also takes away from the leads. Most of the movie is the series of nagging issues that blow up together in the finale, which is a nice touch. But, if it really wanted to be about Sunset cementing her relationship with the others, then it would have more scenes like when she pushed Rainbow Dash during Awesome as I Wanna Be; she tries to help, but is rejected.

Everyone involved in the story tries to do something, and everyone does, which has an impact on the plot. Nothing is wasted, which is good. Even Flash Sentry finally has some bearing on a scene or two, so great job. As a film, these are all great things, but that could also be another problem of mine. I’m watching RR the same way I watch an episode of FiM. An episode of FiM focuses in on one, maybe two characters at the most to develop, and has everything revolve around those characters. Here, everything revolved around everyone. It makes a good film, but an above average episode of the show.

Rainbow Rocks is just pretty nice as well, but it’s pretty nice across the board; every scene is cool and well above average, but nothing really stood out as spectacular to me aside from a few select moments.

Rainbow Rocks is just pretty nice as well, but it’s pretty nice across the board; every scene is cool and well above average,

And totally an utterly avoids all the plot holes, problems, improves on every aspect, and the only issues left, are those inherent to the entire idea and setting.

Cook for her you fucking idiot

No woman wants a man that doesn’t cook.

Cooking doesn’t just mean making a meal for her, it means that you took time out of your day to make her a meal. It means a lot to a woman.

But right now it seems to me that she should be the one to leave you.

You lazy fuck

Sorry, but I have to reblog this.  EVERYONE should learn how to cook.  Not just for anyone else, but for YOURSELF.

I learned how because I knew it was a useful skill, but I also grew to ENJOY it doing so.  Going to a restaurant every day is ridiculous and such a waste of money. 

There is no reason in this day and age that people don’t learn things they need to know in first world regions…..

Also sorry about the caps not sorry…

But but… cooking is hard. that’s what microwaves were created for.

… or roomates that know how to cook stuff without ruining anything more complex then Ramen… no wait, I’ve ruined that too…..

"So far I’ve had wolves and ogres thrown at me because of you? Anything else you want to send flying centimeters over my head, hmm?"

Hey sweet, yeah this one was from Ponyfinder this week.

Well my mood is shot

Reading what was till now an otherwise great FoE fic… and then, BAM! Turns out it’s not an FoE fic, it’s a PH fic. Pulls in some of the bullshit retcon, screw you Kkat my story is beter even though all I know is over the top suffering, rape, angst, pain, rape, and killing characters because they can only be raped or die. I don’t give a crap about any of your story except what I can use for my own horseshit from that abomination.

Well, it WAS a great FoE fic up till then at least…. This is another reason I fucking Loathe PH so much it’s a goddamn cancer, it spreads, it infects everything, you can’t escape it, and all it does is ruin otherwise great stories, by bringing in all of it’s bullshit and crap and just… fuck you once again Somber, not only try to ruin FoE, but ruin so many other great stories.

For anyone who has not been paying attention to my posts, I lost my job on the 7th of this month.  This came at a rather bad time as where I live is summer town and finding work in the fall and winter is one of the worst times to do so.

I’m hoping that I could earn some extra money for the time being by doing commissions.  I’m just going to do a flat rate and have extras available for a bit more money.

Commission Prices:
$5: A single character (pony or anthro) flat color, no background.

+$2.50 for each of:  shading, NSFW, each extra character, simple background.

I will NOT do gore, vore, watersports, scat, rape, hyper, inflation, violent acts, or any fetish I’m not comfortable with.

Either email me at amorasilverspark@gmail.com or message me through my tumblr.

Even if you can’t or don’t want to commission me, please reblog this so the word gets out.  I really could use the funds.

If you want some references of what I have done, I have a link HERE.

I’ll have 5 slots available at a time and I’ll try to do them

Slot 1: taken (sketch done, paid)
Slot 2: empty
Slot 3: empty
Slot 4: empty
Slot 5: empty

Morning signal boost, anyone? Cheap, amazing art to help someone out? Even a signal boost or two?
