  1. Breath of the Wild 2 is gonna start out with Ganon saying "YOU MUST DIE!" before zapping Link and Zelda with lightning because they brought light into his lair.

      Not yet. Waiting for the reviews to show up and see if it is worth my time.

      But I just saw a comment from a guy on Reddit saying that it brought some much needed levity to Celestia... So yeah...

       

      People say it is MLP at its dumbest, with fast animation and dumb 'stuff'. Some people say it's funny while others said it is MLP without all that made it special.

      She didn't exist in the cartoon at the time. It's likely a coincidence.

      Unless she has a reason to exist in the following movies. I don't know.

      I don't know if you've heard this one, but 80% of 'the right way to right dialogue', is to read it aloud. I couldn't agree more with that. Though, dialogue does come slowly for me too. It's easy to realize when something isn't good enough, but making it right is a tad more difficult.

      I had a lot of trouble with this sort of thing on this fic, on others and even on my books. For example, Cadance explaining to OC how she feels because of worship and the OC being worried because it sounded dangerous. It's something that I couldn't fall back on the cartoon to tell me why it should be. So, I had to come up with stuff that sounds reasonable, even if it would never make it into the cartoon.

      I think that a good way to deal with this sort of thing is to make up the fictional world in your head and then have the character explain as if you're talking to the reader, explaining your 'headcanon'. In your case, it's easier, because this is something that is a lot more down to earth with the typical stuff from the cartoon.

      Then, I think you're doing it right giving Chrysalis this 'celestia-like' persona, since I'm assuming she's still 'their mother'. The thing is... Is she lying? Does she know that she's lying? Is Thorax supposed to be convinced? What about the reader? Are they supposed to be convinced that Chrysalis' is telling the truth? A lot of this rides in the description tags as the dialogue moves along. The intensity of her voice, the way Thorax perceives it. The atmosphere in the whole scene... I think that figuring this stuff out, and putting the headcanon into a sort of 'bible', before writing the dialogue itself, helps a lot.

      Come to think of it, there's even a philosophical point about the legitimacy of government and what it means to be a god and why one shouldn't rule a nation... Things way above the target audience of the cartoon. :ajlol:

      It's a very 'fixey' fic because I ended up adapting the stuff that became canon as the cartoon progressed. I started it back in season two/three as part of the fluff for a RPG. As the RPG ended, I decided to re-write the fic from the start. Part of the premise is that their real world is kinda like the cartoon, but not quite. So, the main character, a fan turned pony, has a fun/funny/hard/painful time realizing what is what and how things work in Equestria.

      The cringe part is that, since I don't plan on publishing it,  I let go with all the bad ideas, such as romantic interest in a canon character, OC becoming important, the possibility of a war, etc...

      I've been playing Surviving Mars.

      And since it's a slow game, I've been working on an old and 'guilty pleasure' fanfic. Seriously, I've played almost non-stop all my free time, since launch.

  11. @Metemponychosis what are your thoughts on that post I made do you agree or disagree with what I said there?

      I see. I'm very passionate about the cartoon because I really love it. I love talking about it, so I usually have a lot to say about it. Particularly Princess Celestia, since I see her as an important character in the cartoon.

      I think that what I'd like to know is what is it that you call 'drama'. Because, in my experience, it seems like people often use the word whenever people are discussing something, regardless of insults beings thrown around or not.

      Nothing much. Studying, playing games. Writing fics and my books.

      What about you?
