    I'm not sure how Batman liking Jazz could be worse than that particular comic.
    I am sure I don't want to know how it could be worse, on the off chance it is.

    I think to be honest, that's a pretty widespread Fanon.

    Personally I'm not fond of it though. It's almost like saying that it's not okay to be different (from other dragons) and/or that spike is somehow less of a dragon for lacking them.

Perhaps a work vs. play AJ/Pinkie story based on the Grasshopper and the Ants, or perhaps a Dash/Pinkie story in which Dash can't let it go when Pinkie consistently beats her at a game Dash's good at.

    Thoughts?
    Don't participate. Rushing to get done by the deadline will only cause unnecessary suffering. Be a Judge instead. Pick one of the two ideas and begin writing it for yourself, rather than the competition.
    If you feel the urge to disagree with this advice, then there you go. You had your answer all along. ;)

    I'm going to respectfully disagree with Tiki. Or rather, agree with his white text. Participate, pick the quicker of the two ideas and push yourself to get it done unless you're really worried about other things in your life right now. You'll likely end up with a good piece of work, one that maybe you didn't even think you could get done in that time-frame, and will be free to edit it further if you like it.

    You need some Rainbow Dash running shoes and shorts. Only then will your transformation be complete.

    That depends on Lixie. If she shows up you'll be shipped with anything/everything and become Rainbow Dash. Otherwise Scootaloo.

    Can be seen here.

    Though fair warning there's the resolving of an ongoing plot line around that review. If you watch AT4W, ever.


    I think to be honest, that's a pretty widespread Fanon.

    Personally I'm not fond of it though. It's almost like saying that it's not okay to be different (from other dragons) and/or that spike is somehow less of a dragon for lacking them.
    Difference is I will reject any and all evidence to the contray. Shoot cannon at canon if need be.

    I just happen to think dragons should fly, it more majestic and what not ties in better to the imagery of dragons as the most powerful beasts of lore. Sure its just acquired and not even historically true of western dragons... but ehh this isn't rational.

    (And seriously every dragon but has them in show...)

    Extracts from an English essay on gender I just finished, helpfully informed by My Little Pony:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Question:
    20. To what extent do women read and write differently from men? Is there a coherent tradition of female authored literature embodied in genres such as the female Gothic? Are there valid generalizations we can make about female authored literature and criticism or does any such analysis run the risk of essentialism?

    Gendered analysis of literature is frequently a self defeating endeavour because it exists to argue or react to increasingly obsolete cultural stereotypes, which often go unexamined or unchallenged even as elaborate arguments are built upon them. Any number of arbitrary claims can be made about female or male authored work, saying that females are more caring and compassionate, or males more proud and dominating and so on, and a plethora of examples can be collected to prove that this is the case. However, the body of the world’s literature is so enormously vast that examples can be found to support any position one cares to argue, and the people who write these pieces are an immensely varied group differentiated far more by their individual personalities and surrounding circumstances than their gender. In a sense, focusing relentlessly on binary question of gender is to boil down the immense complexity of human sexuality to a simple yes/no equation, a process as crude and unhelpful as if you were to define all literature in terms of monarchical or democratic.

    [...]

    In the modern world, cultural restrictions about gender and sexuality have become extremely relaxed compared to their historical positions. Females have vastly increased independence, social standing, sexual freedom and political power. A range of sexualities are increasingly publically accepted beyond just heterosexuality and homosexuality, but also transgender, androgyne, agendered, demisexuality and so on. These categories blur the already blurry male/female line and make gendered analysis even more obsolete than it already is. Is a male-transgendered-female examined in terms of female writing? Does an asexual woman read and write differently from men? Are there any valid generalisations about gender we can make about a group containing homosexuals, bisexuals, transgenders and hetrosexuals? What is the definition of ‘woman’? The question is far more complex than might be imagined. Perhaps the only safe way to ask the question is “Do you have a Y chromosome?”

    At that point, the question of gendered writing becomes purely absurd. How does the Y chromosome affect how you read and write? How does the genetic mutation in your lymph node affect your appreciation of sonnets? Does the fact that your genetics produce dark skin make you incapable of appreciating War and Peace? We have reached the point when we are arguing how brain chemistry affects our relationship with the English language, the point where we are arguing the completely ascientific view that women’s brains are wired inherently differently than men’s and never the two shall cross, and generally immersing ourselves in the reprehensible cultural morass of history.

    These sexualities and complexities have always existed and have been hidden for fear of cultural retaliation. The recent vast growth of the LGBTA community isn’t a result of modern society pushing people to new orientations; it is a mask too long worn being taken off, raising with it elaborate historical questions. Was Napoleon transgender? Should we revisit all the policies of Imperial Bonapartist France with regards to female psychology? What should we do if we can’t tell if a writer is male or female from a piece of writing? In the event of a male writing feminine My Little Pony fanfiction what set of stereotypes shall we refer to?

    No, these questions are self defeating, divisive and a pointless attempt to put labels on a topic as fluid as water and as vast as the ocean. Females do not read and write differently from males. Individuals read and write differently from each other. What gender means for each individual is a unique and personal question that can not and should not be generalised. There are much more important questions and factors, from individual orientation to cultural conditioning, that inform who people are and how they respond to language and literature than the question of what is going on in their pants.

    There are a lot of different ways to be a girl.

    Thoughtful.

    I'd be curious to your response to the following proposition:
    Spoiler
    Show
    The creation of gender categories, as with most labeling efforts, includes both a normative and a predictive/descriptive exercise. You've very effectively dismissed the normative exercise, but in so doing also dismissed the descriptive/predictive exercise as well. That is, you've simply thrown out the label of gender and told us that it has no use in any context related to writing. Do you have in mind any alternative terms or models for use in a predictive/descriptive effort in a piece of writing, or is the effort of determining the characteristics of a work based on traits of its author something that you believe, more broadly, to be an exercise in futility?


    Obviously, no need for a further essay, just something to think about.

    I actually kinda enjoyed a few days of one less distraction, I even think I was marginally more productive than usual Now, if it had happened on a day when a new episode aired, I'd have gone totally bananas and donned some kind of supervillain costume.

    Actually, yes, I agree. My major problem was that I was in the middle of like 15 posts when It Happened.

    I mean he doesn't have wings, but all the dragons have wings. I mean Salamander (Mythic version) can breathe fire, fireproof and doesn't have wings.
    If he's a dragon, Spike could be like Worf, who is considered as a good guy in the evil race.
    And just like Worf, completely ineffective against others of his kind.

    Saw that earlier and it is AWESOME! I do like the little detail additions on Celestia.

    Speak for yourself, I had plenty of Ponythreading with some friends building NPCs for today's D&D game. Two encounters with ponies and a "Mecha-Spike"

    To be fair, we do have other threads with ponythread flavored insanity stashed away. It's just that they got knocked out as well.


    In the meantime, I've thought up yet another fanfic idea that I may or may not ever get around to writing.

    A contingency plan of Discord's is activated, turning Equestria into a D&D-like realm and forcing the mane 6 to go on an epic quest to retrieve the Elements of Harmony. Essentially the mane 6 in D&D with Discord as the DM.
    If brute force isn't working, that just means you're not using enough of it.

    When in doubt, set something on fire. If not in doubt, set something on fire anyway.

    I had other ponythreads to go to. Admittedly, they're much slower than this one, but they were still running. Had a nice discussion of liking Twilight despite her flaws, which somehow veered into a brief rundown of the differences between the different Links...

    Applejack x Rarity is best pairing. An artist is doing a 30-day OTP there with Rarity and Applejack.
    There are some adorable images to be seen.

    Sounds like when Nick in my gaming group runs a campaign... except everyone else in the party is already "Discorded"
