    So I'm faced with a bit of a dilemma.

    I've got a character in mind for a MLP story. It's an ultimately villainous character, and I base him heavily on Final Fantasy VI's Kefka Palazzo. He would ultimately be similarly insane and have a similar rise to power, becoming equally as powerful as either of the two princess/goddesses, perhaps even robbing them of the majority of their powers for his own. A few issues are here, however.

    1. A story of this kind almost demands Pinkie Pie as the main character. A Kefka-like character would have many of the same qualities Pinkie Pie herself has, but twisted. His insanity runs far deeper and far darker than Pinkie Pie's can go, and would be on display almost constantly. In essence, the character would be Pinkie Pie's reflection in a cracked mirror.

    2. The dark, nihilistic nature of the character present the problem that the fic may end up becoming rather dark. I'm not really sure how this can be avoided, given the nature of a mixture of nihilism and complete insanity. I'm not really keen on this idea as I really don't like seeing especially bright worlds turning grim and dark beyond a certain point. Making the world a bit grittier is fine, considering the backstory and the frequent elements of danger in the show proper - just not rampant death and destruction.

    Essentially, I have three choices: Go ahead with the story in its most raw, dark form, find a way to make it less dark, or simply kill the thoughts with fire. If I do the second, though, I am at a total loss as to how.

    There's already a fallout crossover. I know it's not the darkest but nuclear apocalypses is fairly grim so go right ahead and use the story in its most raw, dark form

    Not looking to past writers as an example of what I should or shouldn't do, so don't suggest them to me. Even if you say "so and so did this". I'm also aware of the Cupcakes fic, and in any case the fact that there is dark fiction out there of that kind is one of the reasons why I am even questioning whether or not to go grim with this one. I've already written a blog about how much I dislike dark fiction in Pokemon, so the fact that I even have these story ideas makes me feel like a hypocrite.

    Well then it's up to you. I don't know a thing about FF games or characters so I don't know how dark it's going to get. Maybe you can outline the idea to somebody and have them write or scrap it. You could start writing it and after two chapters(not post it) make the decisions as to continue the darkness as you have started or tone it down or scrap the idea.

    After 'procrastinating' (being interested but not seeing the show), I saw a few episodes... I think I'm addicted. The show is fun. ^^;

    I became interested after seeing animated GIFs and then changing mine to one (not the current one; another avatar with Trixie in it).

    They said they are working on it, but there is no official release date as of right now. Otherwise, it's available on iTunes right now. $39.99 for standard definition, $49.99 for HD.

    iTunes leaves something to be desired, though, even ignoring the lack of a physical product and the fact it`s not full HD. They cropped the frame very slightly, which is noticeable if you compare an iTunes screenshot to one from a Hubworld episode or HD cable broadcast. They also did a very poor job converting it, and the colours are washed out. I avoid dealing with Apple for the most part, and I won`t make an exception; not even for FiM.

    I would like a Blu-Ray release alongside the DVD, though. Genuine 1080p without the problems of iTunes (poor colour, 720p, cropping) or the problems with the 1080p cable broadcast (relatively low-bitrate video using the inferior MPEG-2 codec rather than H.264). It would be the best of both worlds, without any of the drawbacks.

    I just watched the first two episodes on YouTube. I'm honestly surprised that I liked it, and I think I'll keep watching them. My favorite for now is Fluttershy. She's adorable. :3

    I'm sure you'll like the rest of the series: the pilot is quite different to the other episodes in terms of storyline. I often say to people "don't watch the pilot first", because it might give a wrong impression of the series.

    Which reminds me... I wonder if we will see Luna in season 2?

    While I haven't picked up anymore episodes since I saw the first two and that one abridged vid (look on page 17) and a few others. They made another episode. I've seen other takes, but this one's the best.



    confoundtheseponies

    additional comment:
    Really confound them now. I sat through episode three last night after I posted this despite saying I wouldn't return (Guess that vid up there was what did it. Crossing anything with Gurren Lagann always makes things 220% cooler, at minimum) Now it's officially my favorite western cartoon (tied with Regular show, which had its own breed of "bronies". But that's something entirely different.)

    What I'm trying to say is, I now officially adore it. Favorite character is Spike.
