Well… That’s an overreaction if I ever heard one.
Want to hear another one?
I’M TURNING INTO A VAMPIRE!
In all seriousness, my photo-sensitivity is getting kinda extreme.
Light makes me tired, I’ve slowly been using the lights less and less to get around; to the point the only light in the room is my computer. When I go out in the Evenings, I need Sunglasses. I’m Sleeping till 4PM in the afternoon. And in the middle of the Night I have boundless energy.
…And I freaking Love it!
Night-Ponies/Bat-Ponies/Lunar-Guards are now officially my Patron Pony-kind!
The first of those terms I just used to dig up a bit of art for them I hadn’t seen before.
Why don’t people use them more? Why don’t we see more of them? Why don’t we have one as a regular character?
I have no idea! But whatever the case, I am so… so ready for more!
Now for Odd topics:
I learned a long time ago that getting excited for something you don’t know it an excessive in futility. It’s what we do know that excites me to the core.
… Tiny scraps of incomplete information are much more exciting than completely secret. And then there’s the Rumors… Oh so Tantalizing… No-one knows the significance of a few marketing department slip ups, if they mean jack or are Legit. But they announce some “Mystery Announcement” and for some reason I can already guess it means something completely bleeding obvious.
Want to know what the new Announcement is?
It’s nothing we don’t already know is what! I mean. we’re already taking bets on what it will be. And when it comes out, Not one person will be surprised, as they will have heard someone already guess it!
…On the other hand, there is this warm snugly feeling we get when it turns out we knew what it was going to be all along. So there’s something.
An Unconfirmed Rumor however is much more powerful, as it gives us a feeling that makes us wonder “Is it right or not?” as we approach the moment. It’s something we know that only “May” be truth.
Didn’t know news was coming, Prey Tell where and when this will be announced?
Now here’s a question…
This show so far has an interesting track record with continuity. Half the time it cares, half the time it doesn’t.
But how many times has something happened that is never mentioned again? Something interesting but rarely seen again?
So far, this includes two entire races of Ponies. Night Ponies, and Crystal Ponies.
The Night Ponies have not been seen again, and were a minor feature to a Halloween episode. Not Plot centric, but darn interesting. They have half an excuse if they aren’t seen again, Even if I seriously want them to return.
…Crystal ponies though?
They show up out of nowhere after a thousand years missing, not even mentioned in legend like Luna was, turn out to be in mortal peril, are the focus of an entire season opening, and from what has been said, they are supposed to be important.
…And now they haven’t been seen again since, and not one character mentions it again…
I know it hasn’t even been a full season yet, but seriously, if they ignore crystal ponies forever, I’m going to have to post a giant “WTF?!” Sign somewhere.
Optimally, I want at least one episode for each… Or at least focusing on a single character from each of the two and their interactions with the Main 6.
But What I’d love most of all… Is to include them and their models in the background with the rest of the ponies!
I mean, how hard can it be to create a few variant flash assets for bat wings? That’s all one of the two needs, and the other just needs a few Gradients! (And maybe Sparkles.)
I mean, They kinda already made those assets! All they have to do is Recolor and mix up with existing assets!
Who makes a whole set of Flash assets and never uses them again? It would make any Producer Pull their hair out! It’s simple Efficiency, if you spend money to make something that can be used a lot and only have to pay for once, but only use it once, you just wasted a lot of money. But if you keep it, and use it often, you are getting a lot more of your money’s worth for that one time you paid for its creation!
… Oh god… This is the widest reaching rant I’ve made in a while… Next…
@Season 4 discussion…
We haven’t even Finished Season 3! Heck, there’s still… what, one episode not accounted for?
I have to check that…
Anyways, if we talk about what we think is going to be in season 4, we’re going in blind. All we know is there WILL be one.
All we can say is what we want, and so far, that is probably going to be the best way to guess. If we know what we want, we at least know where possible fan-service may be.
And to those thinking the “Announcement coming soon” is Season four. I would be disappointed if it was, it was already a given. We all knew it, don’t deny it. There was both Proof and we knew it in our hearts. Simply saying “Season Four is Coming” would be a cop out!
… If they were showing us a preview of season four though, that’s a different story. As is them giving away any spoilers for season four they feel privy to.
But nobody here wants to openly discus Spoilers so Moving on!
I’ve been wondering how long it’s going to take for the next set of remixes for this season’s songs will take to come out… The first batch are usually catchy, but also kinda… imperfect compared to what comes later…
But more than that, I want to see a Medley! A MLP Medley! Where bits and Peices from every song in the series so far is composed into one big song!
… Or maybe just a few mash ups… Seriously. I once half Expected a Mash up of “Find a Pet” and “The Perfect Stalion”.
But, whatever, I’m still going good with What we’ve got, plus Some Friendship is Witchcraft songs.
Seriously, this is going to become a thing, whenever I see something in the show that I think something awesome came right out of nowhere, I’ll just yell that out.
…And If It’s Never Mentioned again, I’ll be very sad… And Then start yelling whatever it is that comes out of nowhere that time.
Seriously, such awesome bats, and we never heard of them before? If we never hear From them again, then I may as well add “Fruit Bat” to the list of “Races that to be seen again to justify being in the show at all, and would really appreciate them coming back”…
Um… That’s too long a title. How About: The “Can we Haz” List?
Man, I’m on a roll!
Now here’s a question, if Cadence has shown up now, how Many Alicorns are actually out there?
But more to the point, why are they there?
We know very little about Alicorns other that they only showed up in the last thousand years (Probably), and before that, the pony traits were separate.
Meanwhile, Discord Shows up at Approximately the same time as Alicorns Show up.
Now, there may be a connection there, there may not, who cares. What’s important is that for some reason, Alicorns showed up “Suddenly”. As if made by an important Event.
What kind of conditions where these? Magical Experiments? Discord in his infinite Whimsy caught onto something nice?
Also, Why does Does Discord go around looking like a bad Windigo impersonator? Is that just him in his infinite Whimsy deciding to “Play the Villain” by deciding to look like one they were familiar with?
And… I… think I’m Done… Maybe?
I feel Like there’s more… But I can’t put it into words…
Eh… it’s Probably just me doing more ranting and raving over things that showed up one time but were never mentioned again…
… We Haven’t seen Buffalo again either, but they are harder to change around assets for to use often (Unlike Night Ponies or Crystal Ponies.)
CHANGELINGS! They introduced them and so far they’ve only been seen again in the comics!
… But then again, they are a faceless horde, even if I did once grab an image and name every one of them I could see in it.
Guess I’m done for this minute.
