Just watched the episode...

...and it made me remember one of the most embarrassing moments in my life, because it played out almost exactly like it did with Fluttershy....except it didn't result in the same way. In elementary school, I went on a field trip to a forested area to do research on bugs (don't ask me why because I don't remember), and I found myself all alone at one point. Looking for various bugs. I started humming tunes of Les Miserables because at that time, my family was obsessed with it. Then it turned to singing. I turn around minutes later, and there were two girls just staring at me. I didn't run away. I just froze. If my pupils could shrink like Fluttershy's eyes could, they would have. They had odd looks on their faces, but then left. I couldn't tell if they were giggling or whatnot. To reemphasize, I was in elementary school, so my singing was nothing like you'd hear from something professional like Les Mis. Nobody mentioned it afterwards, so I can only assume the girls didn't blab about it to their friends. This is the first time I ever mentioned this event to anyone.

As for the episode...

I liked it. I did my fair share of cringing when Fluttershy got found out on multiple accounts (because I can relate to it), but it was very enjoyable. A bit too much music as was mentioned by Moorpheel. Rather interesting that they got Big Mac singing more than he speaks (and still go about interrupting him when he attempts to simply speak). That moment with Applejack and Big Mac going over the situation is just typical humor. Gave me a good chuckle. After watching it, I checked the credits, because I wanted to see if the original "Flutterguy" (Blu Mankuma) did the voice for at least the speaking parts, but sadly, it seems someone else (Alvin Sanders) did the parts, with another (Marcus Mosley) filling in for the singing. Blu seems to be credited in iMDB after the main list, but the credits on the video don't mention him at all.

As a dev of blargSNES, just stop with the claims that o3DS can emulate SNES games accurately @ 60fps. It cannot.

Happy weekend everypony! And hope you all had a happy Hearts and Hooves day!

Equestria Girls 2 uh? Whatever, as long as they don't stop making the original MLP:FiM show, I am fine with this going on. Hope it is fun and dumb as well as the first.

@Lunapplebloom Yeah, we need a real Pony movie. Well, five years is a long time, they may decide to make one.

@Gioku Watch it with an open mind, Pinkie Pie may be a bit over the top, but there is a reason and is not stupidly out there. And good luck with that Brony Club. They will love your art.

OH MY FREAKING CELESTIA!!1! Today’s episode, Filli Vanilli, was awesome! I)^3^(I
My favorite Fluttershy episode ever without a doubt. This one was a doozie of a story and some music. Daniel Ingram, Amy Keating Rogers, I LOVE YOU!

So yeah, this episode had it all, great music, adorable Fluttershy, the return of Flutterguy, cleverly written Pinkie Pie (Yes I know she was a bit exaggerated, but this fourth wall breaking was clever and not just out there, shame people won't notice because stupid Pinkie in other episodes), BigMac singing, and to top it all Twilight used her wings... again, can you believe that? Seriously though, I wasn't expecting what we got here (specially since I had no idea what the episode was about because I avoid any kind of previews), I was amazed by the creativity shown. We all knew Fluttershy sings, but it is true that she'd never done it on a stage, and for her, stage fright was a given. So as soon as I saw the faces of the rest of the mane 6 after the prologue's song, I knew what the episode will be about, but I wasn't expecting how they went for it.

There where so many little details that made an ordinary trope into a great story. Lot's of comedy without it actually being in your face. The rest of the cast not just being there but actually contributing when needed (lol AJ interrogating BigMac was just perfect). But the best things were the unexpected. Big Mac a singer? Mind blown! Zecora suggesting the use of Poison Joke? I thought about it as soon as a saw her, but never imagined they would go for it.

As for the basic plot, the trope was predictable, but Fluttershy's conundrum was realistic. Fluttershy still afraid of being the center of attention can't go away easily, if you know any person like that you know how hard it is. I am glad that while she's shown an improved assertiveness, showed in this episode when she blatantly saying "NO" to Rarity when she asked her to sing with her, we can also see that there is long way to go for her to confortably stand in front of a crowd. It was a good lesson though, you have to face your fears and do what you love, but you can do it at your own pace.

Haven't had time to read lately. D: So let me put something nice an simple that has to be recommended. Tonight on the ==Fic of The Week:==

First Hours by Pen Stroke
[On Fimfiction Slice-of-Life Complete Everyone]
Touch, Smell, Taste, Hearing, Sight
This is the order the five senses develop in for foals as they grow, cradled in the warm safety of a mare's womb. For this one foal, her womb was a thorn bush in the dark of night. For this one foal, the safety and warmth that should have introduced her to the world was replaced with pain and cold.
These are Nyx's first hours.

Past Sins is, and will always be, a big part of the Brony community beginnings. One of the first quality Fanfictions that fans followed hungrily on EQD. When Pen Stroke decided to publish a small print run of the book with the help of Equestrian Publications, tha resultant book was a work of love, with great quality (I have actually seen the book in person, it is beautiful).
This little story was an extra that the author put in the book as a thank you to all who ordered their copy. Now that some time has passed he decided to post the little story for everypony to read.
This is the tale of Nyx's birth told in her point of view; a sneak peek into the little pony's mind. If you have read Past Sins, it is a must. And if you haven't read it, give this one a read, it will introduce you to its universe, and maybe you will decide to give the full story a go.
As usual, amazing writing.


And... How long has it been since I last posted Celestia?
Too long, that is how. Here:

@Twilight_Crow well, at least you've gotten me excited with saying that this is a good Fluttershy episode (you guys should know by now what I think of Fluttershy... and Rarity... XD), so I probably won't get too hung-up on Pinkie Pie's... well, obnoxiousness, too much.

...and maybe this club will get me motivated to continue some of my pony-related artistic endeavors!

I'll let you all know what I think of the episode soon (I'll be watching on 3DS again; hopefully next week I'll have my laptop working again and/or catch it on TV)!

Ahhhhh! Another great episode...!

Fluttershy is the best!

Also, I've said it before, but I seem to have an odd emotional connection to Fluttershy... Now, I've watched my fair share of cartoons and movies and such, and I have never connected to a character like I've connected with Fluttershy... and that's saying something. I don't feel emotions with other characters like this... I feel happy when she's happy, I feel really bad when she gets upset or sad and especially when she cries... I see so much of myself in her, too... it's kinda cool, actually. It's a compliment to the people who make the show that they've created a character that has affected me like this.

Anyway, about the episode specifically:

There are so many parts of this episode I'd like to get freeze frames of to make avatars out of! Especially that one part where Fluttershy and Rarity are leaning on each other — I'd love to have that as an avatar. :3 (if someone could get that picture for me to crop I'd love it! )

Everything was so cute this episode, and as soon as they mentioned needing a bass, and Zicora started laughing... I knew exactly what was coming! XD
...it's so easy to use Fluttershy as the butt of jokes, but you wouldn't think it! XD

...Pinkie Pie kinda got on my nerves a little extra for making Fluttershy feel bad, though, but at least she seemed a little more subdued than usual.

Anyway, this episode is now tied for first for me with the previous episode.

"If you don't have anything nice to say, say it in the nicest way possible" is not how the saying goes. Besides, wasn't s/he in this thread causing trouble before and ended up getting modded? How silly is it to come back to the scene of the crime?

@Undead_terror Nah, your case is different I suppose. Your not a fan of it, but that's alright, because that is your opinion on the matter, and onions* are swell. However the haters......well it's the balance and rule of the internet I guess (This sounds so weird, I should catch some z's now)

*Spell check, opinion should had been the first suggestion, not the layers man, not the layers!!!

Catgirls are beautiful creatures that need to be respected and loved, especially by human males. Do everyone a favor and keep kitty girls alive.

Though I think we are beating a dead horse, there is a difference between having a respectful opinion and flaming. Let's leave it there, OK?

After all,

There's still a certain freeze frame I'm looking for!

EDIT: never mind, I got it already! What do y'all think?
