Is anyone else being directed to Murder in Ponyville part 3? ...I dont think this is correct...
Murder in Ponyville - Part 3You done goofed.
I got re-directed as well. Mistake on the Blog Author's part? ._.
@Peaches n' CreamYeah, I opened it, and it went there for me too. And then my computer crashed. Strange coincidence, haha.
Just got fixed as I came back to say it went to the wrong one. XD Thanks for getting on that so quickly.
That was really sweet. It had the right feel to be an actual episode, too. This version of Derpy is really well-realized, and I love the bookending voice-overs. Great job!
@AnonymousThank you! It will take a little more polishing and length to get it to submission grade (if I want to do that), but I just wanted to run it by a couple of Pony fans. Suggestions welcome.Glad you like it!-Haybaler Bass
Rarity was so out of character that I can't even begin to like this.She doesn't reject ugly. She has OCD. She makes it her mission to turn ugly things pretty.
Rarity wasn't Rarity, but all in all, I liked it : )
Good show, and I can see Rarity acting a little like that. Without an emotional bond to another pony, she would probably be one to judge by appearance. You could write it so that it would become clear that Rarity knew she had behaved incorrectly, and have her be taken by guilt and try to make amends for her behavior.
I liked it.Just that you named her "Bubble Beam" just made me think Pokémon all the time. :/
YES, OH MY GOD
@Putuk Haha, I had no idea that was a Pokemon move, I never played. I just wanted to come up with a generally positive name for her and riffed off the bubble mark. I thought about using Ditzy Doo (titling it the Ditzy Doo Diaries), but I don't see Derpy as a ditz. I can work with the name.@Myke Greywolf and the Rarity commenters - I knew on submitting this that Rarity was going to be a problem. Can I really cast one of the main 6 as an antagonist? I agree with Myke, but when writing spec for series, it has to be lucid that one's Rarity is the canon Rarity known and loved by all. That will be my main issue in the rewrites. And yes, I do need a bigger guilt payoff than her serving the cookies.Regarding >> She doesn't reject ugly. She has OCD. She makes it her mission to turn ugly things pretty. >>I think a bit of Rarity's frustration might come from the fact that she is powerless against making the mailpony "pretty." The purpose of this episode was to turn the little animation error of Derpy into a positive message about coping with physical disabilities. I even considered how it would be to have her voiced by Andrea Friedman (the voice actress with Down's Syndrome of Family Guy fame) to further connect the point to the real world.Also thought Fluttershy might be dipping OOC a bit, with the pirate impersonation, but it may not be too much of a stretch if her impersonation is a quiet one around friends. Thanks to everyone who read! I'll keep you posted with further updates. -Haybaler Bass
