Doctor Whooves - Twists and Turns Pt 8 by Edowaado

Ok. I'm trying this again. Somebody told me that a critique was meant to comment on the artist's drawing style and quality of the artwo...

Doctor Whooves - Twists and Turns Pt 4 by Edowaado

This deserves more than just my regular comments, because this partucular comic hits close to home. I've only learned a short time ago ...

Hello, loyal followers.

I've decided to break my journal silence following something I heard on the news today that seriously piqued my curiosity.

The Canadian Gov't announced today that it was going to put forward a Bill that will give all transgenders equal rights. At this stage, it's still in the planning process. Anything can happen from this point; but if our "rock star" gets his way, the Bill will go to a Parliamentary vote by the end of June. Then, if it passes the vote, it will then go on to The Senate where they will then vote on whether or not it is to be made into Law.

That's when I realized that I probably know next to NOTHING on what it's like to be a transgender. I mean, when I came of age, I ALWAYS knew that I was a MAN with all of the normal wants, desires, and interests that you'd find in any other normal man walking down the street. My idea of transgenderism was essentially "a woman who was trapped inside a man's body, and vice versa". Mostly MALE, though. I must admit that I don't know too many MEN who feel trapped inside a WOMAN's body. :P That assumption, however, is probably DEAD WRONG.

Then I thought: What better place to gain that enlightenment than RIGHT HERE, on DA. :)

SO I put it to YOU, my loyal followers. What's being a transgender all about?

Maybe you know someone who's a transgender, or maybe you're a transgender yourself.

Can you help enlighten a "man's man"? :)
Hello, loyal followers.

Some of who are a bit older(like, around my age or older) will know what the title of this journal entry is in reference to.

Normally, at this time of the week, I submit my journal entry recapping my impressions on the latest My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic episode(which was enjoyable, by the way); but lately, I've been felling that it seems to be more "work" than "pleasure" for me to write down  these journals. My heart just doesn't seem to be into it anymore, for some reason.

I know this may be a disappointment for some of you, as you look forward to reading these journals... or DO you? It seems to me that you just don't care about what I write down here; well, there's at least ONE person that I know of that CARES; at least, a little; but he's admitted to not really be following the show anymore; as if it's lost its appeal to him, somehow; which puzzles me as to why he bothers reading these journals in the first place.

All this to say that I'm going to stop making those journals, unless some of you can convince me to keep going. Right now, honest to God, it feels more of a CHORE rather than a HOBBY for me.

I guess that's all I have to say about that.

Sincere apologies.
Hello, loyal followers! :)

Fresh off of watching the latest installment of pony goodness; it's time, once again, for me to offer up my impressions on the episode gone by. As usual, since this journal entry contains SPOILERS, it's best to view the episode before reading what I have to say here. So, without further adue, let's get right down to it, shall we? :)

This episode centers around Twilight Sparkle giving Starlight Glimmer her next friendship lesson. What is the lesson, you may ask: Make a new friend and invite him/her to a special dinner at Twilight's palace with Princess Celestia as a way to show the most powerful pony in all of Equestria(she IS like the U.S. President, after all =P ) how Starlight's friendship lessons are progressing.

The key word here being "NEW". That is to say: She can't invite a pony she's already friends with, so that rules out Sunburst. I was a little bit disappointed with this, because I would've liked to have seen him again.

As expected, Starlight Glimmer was struggling to make that all important new friend... until a chance encounter with a mysterious pony while at Lotus and Aloe's spa. This other pony was able to relate to what Starlight went through; thus a connection was made; and lo and behold, that all important new friendship was struck.

Turns out, Starlight's new friend was The Great and Powerful TRRRRIXIE! When Starlight introduced her new friend to Twilight, she was none too pleased, as expected. I can surely sympathize. I wouldn't like it either, if my best friend was to become friends with my worst enemy.

What happens next is we see Twilight trying to convince Starlight to stop being friends with Trixie, and make another friend that was more to Twilight's liking. Of course, Starlight would have none of it, for she saw in Trixie a kindred spirit. Of COURSE! She was a former villain, like Starlight was.

What ends up happening is Starlight skips out on the all important dinner to help Trixie out with her new magic act, as she was just hired by Trixie to be her new Assistant. The actual trick was something worthy of Evil Knievel and Harry Houdini(who was ponified as HOOFdini in a brief sequence), as she was to be shot out of a cannon straight into a live manticore's mouth, and Starlight's job was to teleport Trixie into a locked box after being swallowed by the manticore.

Meanwhile, back at Twilight's palace, Twilight was entertaining an impatient Princess Celestia while wondering where Starlight was. She even had Derpy, Vinyl Scratch and Cranky Doodle Donkey as stand ins for Starlight's all important friends. =P At one point, she excused herself to go look for Starlight. When she finally found her at Trixie's magic show, she apologized to Starlight; having realized  the error of her ways. She should not have tried to pick and choose Starlight's friends for her; but instead, should have allowed Starlight to make up her own damned mind(A very important moral lesson here, I might add. :)  )

There were a few funny moments in the episode. Like a scene where Starlight Glimmer turned Big Macintosh into a blabbermouth using a spell, when Applejack introduced him to her as a potential friend. Why did she do that? In her own words, she "didn't want to be friends with somepony who didn't talk."

Matter of fact, much of the episode was pretty funny. I certainly liked it! :)

I also think that this was the first episode that Princess Celestia had appeared in where she doesn't say anything. Usually, she has SOME words of wisdom to say to somepony, or another. :P

And that's all there is to say about that. 'Til next time! :D

In the meantime, and in between time, keep your stick on the ice. :)
Hello, loyal followers!

Fresh off of viewing the latest installment of pony goodness; it's time, once again, for me to offer up my impressions on this week's episode gone by. As always, since this journal entry contains SPOILERS, it is highly recommended that you view the episode before reading what I have to say here. So without further adue, let's get right down to it! :D

The episode starts with Spike and Rarity doing what they do best: Mining for gems(Who else but Rarity would put a blue bow at the back of her mining helmet? =P ). They were mining in the middle of a dark cave filled with sleeping bats; therefore, they couldn't use too much lighting; i.e. Rarity's magical unicorn glow.

She was doing her utmost to control it... Then suddenly, Spike lighted up like a Christmas tree, and he didn't know why! He also said his scales were burning! This is the first time Spike ever did this, so this was my first WTF!? moment in the episode. Of course, this awoke the "Sandbats Of Maynard 4"(If anyone can recognize the reference, you get a cookie), who then attacked.

It was Princesses Celestia and Luna, who happened to be at Twilight Sparkle's place for afternoon tea, who would tell Spike that his body glow and burning scales were The Call Of The Dragon Lord for a special meeting, and that he has to venture into The Dragon Lands to see what it was all about.

Of course, Rarity and Twilight Sparkle volunteer to go with Spike. Twilight to gather up more information about dragon customs, and Rarity just  to be with her Spikey Wikey. :)

As you'd probably expect, whenever the dragons of the Equestrian multiverse are involved, that jerk GARBLE can't be too far behind. AND, of course, he was there! He sounded a little older than in that dragon migration episode, but he was still as much a jerk and a bully as before. :P

It was here that we were able to meet other dragon characters, including a couple of female dragons, or dragonesses. Not bad looking, if I do say so myself. :icondragonspif:

It was also here that we met The Dragon Lord himself, who goes by the name of "Torch", and he was one HUMOUNGOUS male! Then we met his daughter, who sent by the name of Princess Amber. A dragon princess??? How 'bout THAT! :) 

It was here that I had my SECOND WTF!!? moment, for she was REALLY tiny compared to her father. She was only a little bit taller than Spike himself. She must take that from her mother. :P

The Dragon Lord then announced(in his own version of The Canterlot Voice) that he had called this gathering because he was stepping down as Dragon Lord, and that his successor was to be chosen through a contest appropriately named The Gauntlet Of Fire.

Spike, at first, said he wasn't gonna participate(much to Garble's delight); but later changed his mind(much to Garble's disappointment =P ). Princess Amber, The Dragon Lord's daughter, said she wanted to participate; but her father, of course, said "NO!". Undeterred, she disguised herself as one of the participants with some nice golden dragon armour, and was able to get into the contest that way.

Later, after being saved from drowning by Spike, she decided to work with the little dragon to get through this obstacle course from Hell called The Gauntlet Of Fire. It was here that I had my THIRD WTF!!? moment when Princess Amber said "dragons don't DO 'friends'!" SO, in the Equestrian multiverse, dragons have a "every dragon for themselves" attitude, eh? It's a good thing that Twilight Sparkle, The Princess Of Friendship herself was there! She could teach them everything she knows about friendship. :)

It was only through cooperation and teamwork that Spike and Princess Amber were able to conquer The Gauntlet Of Fire and retrieve The Dragon Lord Scepter, thus announcing the winner of the contest and new Dragon Lord. Although Spike took the Scepter, he handed it to Princess Amber, who thus became the new Dragon Lord... uhh... LordESS(Is that even a word!!?). If Spike had declared himself the winner, he would've had to have stayed in The Dragon Lands, and assume his new role as leader; but he'd much rather return to Equestria with his pony friends.

I guess you can say that this was The Rite Of Succession... THE HARD WAY. :P Instead of simply turning things over to his daughter on the spot, The Dragon Lord held a contest that his daughter ended up winning. :)

I can already see the brony community doing up many "shipping" pics featuring Spike and Princess Amber(as if Spike's gonna dump Rarity for HER. :P ) Still, she IS quite pretty, taken from a dragon spirit's point of view. :D I DO hope there will be more episodes featuring her.

Apparently, there's no new episode next week, so I guess these journal entries will be taking a hiatus during that time. Oh well... *shrugs*

And that's all there is to say this week!

In the meantime, and in between time, keep your stick on the ice. :)
Regression by karkovice1
Regression
Hello, loyal followers!

Or if this is your first time visiting my little corner of the DA world, welcome! :)

The misadventures of :iconout-buck-pony: 's OCs True Blue and Dusty Notes continue. This time, they were struck by what's called an Anon Foal Spell, where they were transformed into FOALS for a spell(no pun intended). :)

Here I am featured oogling over the cute new "babies". To make matters worse, they can only speak in "foal talk", which is essentially a bunch of goo goos, ga gas, boo boos and bah bahs; so nobody can understand them; not even Dusty's mom, Fire Breaker, featured here.

If you'll notice, they're even smaller than their own daughter, Jazz Notes, ALSO featured here. Since she now has her own so called CUTIE mark, she would be about 10 years old here; while poor Bluey and Dusty would be about 2 or 3 years old, hence the title "Regression". :)

How would YOU feel, if you were an adult trapped inside a baby's body? ;P

True Blue, Dusty Notes, Jazz Notes and Fire Breaker all belong to :iconout-buck-pony:

Karkovice Drake belongs to yours truly. :)

All other character belong to their respective owners.
