Ooh, Nyx. Me gusta.
Oooh, I think I'll like #2. Yay string instruments!
Ill probably love these, and YAY OCTAVIA
#3 we had yesterday methinks. Still love it though
Ooh something for Nyx? Definitely off to listen to that one now
#3 is awesome we need more piano songs
Nyx, huh. She's practically become a background pony with all the love she's getting.
Number 2 is simply beautiful. -wipes away a tear-
Didn't you already post the Waltz for Luna?
Interesting, I rather like all of these.
#1 I really liked it. I tried to fit each piece with a part(s) from Past Sins. Will try to not use *Spoilers* but be warned for anypony who hasn't read it yet...1: Beginning scene in Everfree forest during the ritual2: Celestia comes to take Nyx3: Nightmare Moon rises/Nyx fighting the monsters of the Everfree forest4: Injured Nyx and Twilight share what could be their last day together5: Celestia and Luna pass judgement on Nyx/Ending#2 Was very relaxing, I liked it#3 I think this one was posted before, but that's ok cause it's still awesome. I liked how it began with the MLP theme.
#2 was beautiful. Very good job, artist.
Oh man! I just jammed 146 pony related songs on my mp3 player today, and then here's an album and two more songs... I don't know how much longer I can keep up.
ugh Nyx.the fuckin Twilight of the fandom, the most overrated story on the goddamn site is still getting attention, WHY.goddamn Mary Sues.
I hate the way people are 1-starring this simply cos it references Past Sins.You're allowed to not like the fic. I understand it isn't for everyone. But don't hate on some pretty damn good music simply cos it shares the name
@Spell NexusYes I can, and yes I will.it's a cancer on the fandom, the most overrated thing of many overrated things, it's fans are oversensitive morons who cry whenever the stories many many flaws are pointed out.
@MojoWow, and I thought hate didn't exist on this site besides the occasional troll that strolls in. You may not like it and thats fine, but "A cancer on the fandom"? goddamn bro chill its just a story.
@MojoI'm going to join you and take it a step further! I hate all pony music because it's from an overrated show whos fanbase are all bandwagon morons. MLP is a cancer on the web with oversensitive fans who cry whenever someone doesn't like the show. Oh wait, I'm on Equestria Daily because I like MLP, even when others may not...Personally, I think Past Sins is the best story I've read on the blog, but its understandable if you dont like it. Still take a good look at that music though, because I think it's pretty awesome. Judge the music by the music, and not by the fanfic it's inspired by.
#1 A whole album dedicated to Nyx? Wow, someone likes Nyx I think. lol I'm not a huge Nyx fan, but I like Basch's work so I'll give these a listen.#2 Pretty nice piece, I like it.#3 People are saying this one was posted already. Didn't even notice. Ah well, it's a nice little piano piece.
It's a fan fiction, quit your bitching. People like it, big deal, you don't, big deal. I don't like gay Dash but I don't go bitching about it every fricken time I see it....and there is a lot of that.
@Ponies!!!ThisWell, maybe not quite the best fic on this site, but still not a pile of garbage like some say it isBut that doesn't matter. Everyone has their own opinion. What I do object to, however, is the labeling of anything related to it receiving hate simply because it's related. Anybody who thinks this is okay, I will have no choice but to Love and Tolerate the SHIT outta you
@Tyranoman>no hate on this site.you really haven't been around the fandom enough.there be lots of crazy people and trolls if you look around.
And yet I don't see the same level of hate for other fics. But considering Nyx is suppose to be a filly form of Nightmare Moon, I don't see why everyone wants to label her as a Mary Sue due to her being an alicorn with lots of power. She doesn't even get to keep all that power anyways. I dunno, I don't understand why people get so worked up in such a negative way over a story, and thus I try to avoid such people because I will enjoy what I want in the fandom and they can just wallow in their own hate for whatever reasons they may have. And it's not like we see much of Nyx anymore since the story has been finished, so something like this making it to EqD seems pretty rare.
'Nyx'? Never heard of it.
@Ponies!!!>best story on the site>anything other than the Vinyl Scratch Tapes.to some extent that is completely true about the fandom, at least in regard to us having lots of oversensitive crybaby fans (not so much on EQD, but man go to Ponychan and they are EVERYWHERE).
@SgtGarandmy main problem with the story is that I see a ton of the characters (mainly Twilight) being OOC and that the idiot ball seems to be thrown around all the goddamn time. seriously if she was in character Twilight would have reported Nyx to Celestia right away, she's beyond devoted to her.also I find the entire concept of a filly NMM stupid, and worry that idiots can use Nyx to justify their own ridiculous Alicorn OC's.beyond that I simply found Nyx to be generally unlikable, as both a Filly and NMM.the reason it gets so much hate is because its SO overrated and got so much attention it did not deserve.
#1 I'll give you the synopsis for all the songs.They are in chronological order -=SPOILERS=-1. Unfounded Strength: Tug-of-War Scene2. Hearts Torn Asunder: Celestia Taking Nyx away from twilight3. A Triumphant Return: When Nightmare Moon is put back into flesh4. Hearts on a string: The hanging scene5. Dark Savior: Nightmare Moon saving ponyvilleI made these a fair time ago, back when i first started reading the fic. Also, I'm not a major nyx fan, i just felt like making the music xD#2 Cello and harp? All my love.#3 Oh sir, you tease me. Truly amazing work! Its nice to see more people make piano music :)~Baschfire#3
@Mojo I dunno.. saying Twilight was OOC, because she showed compassion for a scared filly instead of turning her over to Celestia to face an unknown fate, seems a bit harsh. And I'd imagine it WOULD be a terrible thing to be devoted to somepony that you've come to think of as your own. Poor Twilight. Honestly, the only character that annoyed me throughout was Pinkie Pie. But I guess it's hard to write for a pony that random. And as far as cancer goes...I think i've seen enough disturbing fics/images/etc. to know that this story isn't even on that level. Cupcakes, anyone? I also think that the obsession with shipping has become more of a "cancer" than one heartwarming story about a mother/daughter relationship. But, I don't go around bringing others down about it and the only hate that anypony will see from me will be for anything similar to Cupcakes OR any kind of *insert pony* abuse.
@SgtGarandyes, Twilight in the show is devoted to Celestia to the point where she would in fact do that, and guess what it would be the right thing to do.Cupcakes is just a Troll shock fic that was way way overblown, it's not even scary, I actually find it funny in how hard it TRIES to be scary and shocking.I don't have a problem with shipping, and id rather see more of it than more goddamn Grimdark/Sad fics.
Thanks for the Suite for Nyx Nicholas Basch. I didn't hoped for something like this, ever.Oh yeah one more little thing... F**K YOU Mojo, not cool man, not cool.
@Mojo......Jojo What, that's what your name reminds me of.Yea cause Twilight always goes to Celestia the second a problem pops up and doesn't try to handle it herself and she turns in her friends when they, say, steal her pet bird.
@Ponies!!!PONIES!!!Y U NO LIKE WOODENTOASTER?
@Mojo Judging from the show itself, I'd say Twilight has tried to handle more problems herself due to fear of Celestia's punishment. I mean, thinking she would banish Fluttershy for taking her Pheonix or thinking she'd be sent back to magic kindergarten for not turning in a friendship report on time? Not to mention how freaked out she got each time Celestia was coming to visit Ponyville. So yea, I doubt Twilight would want to turn in a scared filly and risk it being sent to the moon just because it may or may not be NMM.I think some parts of the fandom is starting to take things way too seriously. The show is suppose to be cute, heart warming, funny, innocent, and simple to follow. And I think 'Past Sins' follows those traits. So, I don't understand why it can't just be enjoyed for what it is without expecting some epic adventure written by a professional author that doesn't fall into some of the pitfalls that fan-based writing often experiences. And yet it seems to receive the most hate. IF anything, fics that are shipping, grimdark, etc. are the ones that are not in character with the show.
#3 was on here aleady and IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME IN THE LEAST BECAUSE IT IS COMPLETELY AWESOME.
@crazyredemuthat is who im named after!when the problem is this pony might be an evil god reincarnated, yeah I think she would.
@Dashie<3 you too! :)
i think you guys are talking waaaaay to much to the paraspriteya'll are silly, and he's got a boner from your pain, i'm just sayin
No, I've seen Mojo here before, he wasn't trolling then.
She wasn't an evil god reincarnated, she was Luna reincarnated, Luna is not a god, and she didn't assume the worse of Luna when she road into town with bat winged pegasus.es...ponies and started shouting at the top of her lungs.Anyway most all fan fictions are ooc, sad, grimdark, action, shipping and so on.
@SgtGarand"BECAUSE IT MAY OR MAY NOT BE NMM"kinda a bigger issue there then the other stuff don't yah think? though Celestia would be a fool to just send it to the moon, the only correct course of action would be putting that potential monster down, for the greater good of all, holding one over everyone else is foolish. (and yes that isn't really critism as much as random thought exposition by me)and I think Twilight would be more afraid of the potential of Nightmare Moon (you know basically an evil god) coming back than Celestia punishing her.this fandom has taken things too seriously for a LONG time, where have ya been? I don't expect professional epic adventures out of fanfics, as i said earlier my favorite fic on the site is the Vinyl Scratch tapes, a comedic, lighthearted fic with some mild shipping.as I said before it receives lots of hate because it got more attention than it deserved, Fallout Equestria has more attention than it deserves too IMO, though I have no solid opinion of it due to not having the will to read a fic that goddamn long.
@crazyredemushe was Nightmare Moon reincarnated, for the purpose of that story they are too some extent seperate entity's, and Nightmare Moon WAS evil (though I do regard her and Luna as ultimately one and the same) which is why my favorite fan fics than anything else are generally more comedy with a plot than anything else.
Dude, I like Past Sins but Fallout E blows all other fics out of the water! It's fricken epic, I wish all fics were written that good. The biggest put off is the Grimdark part but that I can understand cause it is GRIMDARK AS FUCK!!! I also liked the Blind DJ pony ship fic...and Mort takes a holiday...and the stories I write but they have the ponies way ooc
@crazyredemuthat's nice.I still don't have interest in reading it, it's way way too long, and from what I hear the end is still not really in sight.I simply don't want to invest that much time in one fan fic.I have no real problem with the idea of Grimdark if it's done right, but like right now it seems that over half of the fics submitted to EQD are Grimdark and/or Sad, which is kinda odd considering this is a show about Cartoon Ponies, Friendship, and Magic, also that much of one thing just gets boring.however Vinyl Scratch Tapes remains my favorite, simply cause it made me laugh lots and ended up getting adorable too.
@Amonisisim not really a Troll but i'll admit some of the more outrageous statements iv made here like "PAST SINS IS CANCER" were deliberately made to get a rise out of people for laughs.can't help myself sometimes.however generally iv just been stating my opinions here.
Oh the end is near, Kkat said so. Im a huge reader, durning my breaks at work, free time, and so on so I like really long fics
#1 was quite well made, regardless of your feelings as to the inspiration. The individual movements were distinctive and carried the appropriate emotional tones. Very nicely done.#2 is simply beautiful. Loved it completely.I don't think #3 is technically a waltz any more than I did yesterday, but it's still as great as it was yesterday.
@crazyredemuI have friends who follow the fic.Kkats been saying that for like 3 months now.
@DashieI never said she wasn't different.I have read the story, I greatly disliked it.
I ment chapter wise, she is not the flash lol
Well I've reached my daly limit on arguing, if I argue anymore I will have to start paying by the minute so that's all from me, have a nice day.
While I'll admit Past Sins is a bit overrated, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't one of my favorite fanfics. It's one of the only multi-chapter fics that I've read multiple times.FO:E is still my favorite. I'm actually planning to reread it when it finishes, just so I can see how long it takes me. I'm guessing about 1.5-2 weeks.
#2 Is so wonderful, and #3 is, well, it's been posted already but that doesn't matter; it should be posted two or three times a month, just to listen to.
Wow. A whole album for Nyx? Words can't describe how grateful I feel. As much as Past Sins is both over-hyped (it is) and apparently hated by some, Pen Stroke and I are always blown away by how generous our readers are with their fan works and we appreciate their efforts.Also, all classical music? I'll have to give a listen because I love me some classical music. Anyone feel like remixing Discord's theme from the show into a form of classical music?
Well well well... it seems we have some NEIGHsayers in the audience! And you know what that means: CUPCA-- I mean, uh, love and tolerance for everypony! :DSeriously though: Mr. Basch is rapidly becoming one of my favourite Pony musicians, with his delightful classical-inspired melodies. And Pen Stroke & Batty Gloom continue to write phenomenal fics -- bad stories and forgettable/unlikable characters don't get Star-6 ratings and piles of fanart, you know.Keep up the great work! *clicks 5-star*
@Batty Gloomwell it's not classical but Discord's theme does have this glorious remix.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHn19IgXpq8&feature=mfu_in_order&list=ULI find the fact that im linking you this now after my little hate storm against Past Sins there, just know I actually like most of other fic iv read that you and Pen Stroke wrote.really a large part of my dislike for the fic stems from some of it's fans being really annoying and seemingly caring more about it than the actual show, but I actually do respect all the time you and Pen Stroke put into it regardless of my dislike for the result.and hey id actually rather have Past Sins than the recent flood of Grimdark/sad fics.
@PHR16384yes they do, bad stories do sometimes get lots of attention.how else can you explain the popularity of Twilight (though it's unfair to compare I guess as we aren't tween girls)
1. Nyx? Nyx. Nyx!2. Beautiful.3. What is it, Groundhog day?
@Mojo>Keeps posting in same thread, mostly negative comments.Not sure if paraspriting...
Say what you will about Past Sins, you have to admit that it was at least memorable. The worst thing a writer can experience is indifference to their work. Lots of people liked Past Sins, and lots of people (myself included, to be honest) disliked it, but there are very few who just didn't care. If I had wrote Past Sins, I would be beyond honored that someone dedicated an entire album to one of my characters.
Sees Baschfire Nyx AlbumRealizes he already has the entire thing on his mp3 playerNotices Batty Gloom hadn't noticed its existence yetMaybe I'm being a bit too aggressive with my music acquisition?Re #3: Liked it the first time it was posted, and that hasn't changed yet.@Mojo:My respect for you continues to decline.
@MojoBriefly. You were trolling the comment section of Pen Stroke's most recent fic that time. I'm not mad at you, just disappointed that you can't/won't let go of your hate after all these months and that you feel the need to broadcast it.I and a number of others think it was the Best. Possible. Thing! You and those of your camp believe it deserves to burn alongside the works of Stephanie Meyer (or however you spell her) for eternity. Can't we have an agreeable difference of opinions and leave it at that?
Who is Nyx?
@Mojocan you shut up already? or can somebody ban your for a day? because seriously, your either not being very nice, being insensative, or just being plain rude.there is no "cancer" on the internetand there is no "cancer" in the fandom. Theres no need to hate on anybody because they like a fanfiction...The only justification for a 1 star that I could see on any post is a post about hasbro finally lashing out with copyright claims... because thats just awful.so no need to get angry or defensive or argumentative because of what anypony likes. We're here because we like "My little pony, Friendship is Magic" for celestia's sake...i'm just trying to listen to music. so cool your jets bro..
Sorry to break up the arguments, folks, but... Suite for Nyx is supposed to be a free album correct? If that's the case, could some pony who's downloaded it put up a mediafire link or something? No one seems to realize that if their music gets featured, their available BandCamp free downloads will be gone in 10 second flat.
lol I just found #3 yesterday!
Too much hate on this thread.@ whoever complains about the fanbase:Maybe the reason why the fanbase is so SENSITIVE, is because the story for every single episode (assuming we're talking about the episodes) is as professionally crafted as it can get.Everything about the series is crafted so goddamn perfectly, and if you want to complain about it, saying that, in essence, you can't amount to anything to this degree of awesomeness, then take it someplace else.The fanbase is too powerful; you will all become void in your opinions, and eventually slip into a consciousness, that of acceptance for MLP, and cease your hateful thoughts.I will fight for this fandom, 'till the very end.
