    So, the ending to Background Pony was... not what I expected. Rather, it wasn't what I wanted to happen, but kind of knew would. As always, beautiful, and lyrical, and philosophical. It makes you think about life, memory, and the nature of our existence.

    Overall 9 out of 10. The story has chapters that don't really advance the plot, but the total experience is good, the language fantastic, the emotions evoked like no other fic I've read.

    Being that latter I'm happy. I can pretend I will have a Saturday now.

    Well if your connection can't handle it thats one thing... but video quality is fine. Its not HD or anything but cripes I find the notion I can watch an event live anywhere in the world more then makes up for that. I also like to divide my screen with chat on one side and pony on the other, something that doesn't work as well with tv.

    Really? Last time I watched an episode online, it was really pixelated, which was frustrating, because the visuals are a big part of why I watch it.

    Really pixelated is pretty subjective. I'd say from a whole season IIRC its around youtube's 360p quality. Which is absolutely fine for the native size of the stream size. Now I guess if you have to have fullscreen that can begin to be pixelated. I want HD fullscreen I wait until I can get a clean itunes vid which takes the longest. For a first run through its just fine. I caught Derpy for example, even in the snow globe.

    Ponies are worth watching more then once to begin with.

    I watch it live to be part of the early discussions of the events of the episodes, not to marvel at how nice it looks, I can always do that later. Sure, it's great to watch it in HD, but I don't mind watching it in low quality live if it means I can be part of that early thrill and then watch it in HD again later.

    BIG Update on Empress Trixie of GalCiv2:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Dear Princess Luna,

    The local galactic cluster officially ran out of colonizable planets in year 6. With half the races out there being evil, they began wars with each other over the little fringe worlds. This year was also marred by two terrible events of such large-scale importance that it makes an Ura Major seem like a kitten.

    First, a plague spread across the galaxy, slowly killing the populations of every world. Second, the Dread Lords took advantage of this plague and showed up near the middle of the map.
    According to Twilight's galactic guide book, the Dread Lords are an ancient "HAX" race that start off with all the technologies researched. They built only 3 battleships, but their attack power was greater than... um... it was great and powerful. Like yours truly.

    For the next two years I concentrated on keeping out of the petty wars over small fringe worlds and constructing a bigger fleet to take out the Dread Lords before they take us all out. Already the lords began eliminating battleships from the other races.
    Luck then shined upon the Unicorns, for we discovered not one, but four precursor battleships near planet Twilight! Huzzah!

    I named them the Nightmare Moon, Chrysalis, Discord, and Crackle.
    And with a large squadron of Thanqol heavy fighters and four troop transport ships we were ready to win.


    Year 9 begins and my large fleet heads straight for the Dread Lords one planet. A large, beautiful and resource rich world. Not for long once I get there because I will have to play dirty.
    As we reach the Dread Lord's planet, they launched all three battleships at us. I split my forces up: Battleships Discord and Crackle take on one ship, Nightmare Moon and Chrysalis take on take on a second ship, and then we recombine forces against the third. Combat was fast and deadly. The enemy battleships had three times the offensive power we did, but we had numbers and better defenses.

    We lost battleship Crackle in the war, as well as 2/3rds of the Thanqol fighters. Battleship Discord was so heavily damaged I left it behind for repairs. The rest of the remaining fleet hits the planet. I open up with orbital bombardment and land all my troops at once.

    My forces: 4000
    Dread Lords: 20
    Odds of victory: 7 in 43.

    Never under-estimate technology as an advantage. However, despite this we still managed to successfully take the planet, at the heavy cost of half our forces. However, the Dread Lords are gone and we now stand proudly on a... smoking crater planet. Yeah, it isn't very usable now.

    I now bid adieu my dear princess, for my economy needs tending too (wars are expensive). My scientists have developed a new missile weapon from Dread Lords tech so I will be switching from lasers to that for my next fleet upgrade. But first, a moment for Best Battleship - Crackle.

    Okay, time's up. Back to work!

    Your Great and Powerful student,
    Trixie Lulamoon

    Sweetie Belle seems to be drinking coffee during their attempt to think of something to write for the Foal Free Press. It probably was very dark tea or hot cocoa, though, but it always looked like coffee to me.

    Reminder - Not everyone is able to watch the episodes at air time. Many others want to wait for decent quality streams. Also it could take a few days for them to get caught up to satisfaction.

    The Tuesday Rule is in effect. Please use spoilers and mark them for everything even vaguely episode related. Everything

    The person involved does not like reading, understanding, communicating, or math. That's... Probably the fastest way to put it.

    If I knew how to type out that thing where the guy flips the table, I'd do so right now.

    Being a filly, I'd assume hot cocoa. Personally I was drinking coffee since I was about 5 years old, but I think I'm an exception here.

    Yeah, though curiously it does appear to be only Sweetie who's drinking it, so maybe
