so let's all wish Santa Krampus a happy Kwanzivus or whatever.  I haven't slept in two days.

Well, I've found a full-time job with benefits, but not the one I thought I would.  I am now working in a call center where I troubleshoot people's water heaters.  It pays $13 an hour and once my 90-day probation period is over I will have access to healthcare.  And all I have to do is listen to people scream at me over the phone all day for problems that I didn't cause and policies that I didn't write.



In other news, I recently watched the season 5 finale of MLP.  I thought the first two thirds of it were pretty good, but that ending felt rushed and forced, not unlike the ending of the first Equestria Girls actually.  I also couldn't help but wonder why only ONE villain was shown rising to power in each alternate timeline, or why so many of the timelines had the mane six ponies growing up to be pretty much the same people that they were in the main timeline.  To that end, I would like to share my take on how it would have gone down.

Without the rainboom, none of the mane six ponies would have gotten their marks that day.  Twilight would have given up on her magic studies altogether and would never have become Celestia's student.  Spike would not have been hatched that day.  Applejack would not have left Manehattan and likely would have grown up to be just like her aunt and uncle.  Pinkie would likely have grown up introverted and sullen, staying on the farm with the rest of her family.  There's no telling what Rainbow, Fluttershy, or Rarity would have done.  There's also no guarantee that any of the six would have met beyond those that already knew each other as fillies.

Ultimately, Celestia might have taken a new student, but I doubt they would have been as up to the task, or insightful, as Twilight was.  The Elements of Harmony would never have been found, and with nobody to stop her, Nightmare Moon would have overthrown Celestia and risen to power, plunging Equestria into eternal night.  She would have reigned supreme until Discord ultimately escaped his own imprisonment, at which point he would have quickly overthrown Nightmare Moon and remade Equestria in his own image.  Plus, with nobody to return the elements to the tree of harmony, the seeds of chaos that he had sewn prior to being overthrown the first time would have run rampant and unchecked.  Then the Crystal empire would have returned and Sombra would have begun expanding his own influence to the south, ultimately crossing paths with Discord.  Discord could have easily eliminated this new threat to his rule, but doing whatever he wanted to without consequence would have gotten boring by this point, so he instead would purposely prolong his feud with Sombra to keep things interesting, the resulting chaos from their war being an added bonus for him.  Chrysalis would have seized the opportunity to secretly manipulate both sides to her own benefit, being careful not to let on her true identity to either side, and allowing her changelings to feed while the two lords were distracted with each other.  This would have continued indefinitely if it weren't for Tirek's eventual escape, who would then begin feeding indiscriminately until he was powerful enough to pose a threat to both empires.  Chrysalis, realizing that her own bread and butter was now at risk, would then have convinced Discord and Sombra to broker an uneasy truce, though it's clear that both would plan to betray the other once Tirek was taken down.  It's possible that another villain we haven't even seen yet would also enter the mix at some point.

It is at this point that the Twilight from the main timeline would enter the scene and learn about everything that is happening.  She would probably materialize in the middle of a battle, and be driven away from the map.  She would likely run into various individuals working for Discord and Sombra, and would be convinced to help in the battle, until she stumbles upon Nightmare Moon, still being held captive by Discord, a shell of her former self.  Nightmare moon, curious about the existence of another alicorn, would then ask Twilight about her own existence, and Twilight in turn would tell her about Starlight Glimmer's actions that brought her there.  Nightmare Moon would then strike a deal with Twilight; free her from her prison, and she would help Twilight return to the past by any means necessary in order to set the timeline right.  When Twilight asks why she should trust Nightmare, the dark alicorn replies that after everything she has endured, she would rather be turned back into Luna from the get-go than have to suffer another moment in the current timeline.  Twilight agrees, and with Nightmare Moon's help, she makes it back to the map and goes back in time.

From there, Twilight duels with Starlight, as in the episode proper, and everything goes pretty much the same until they go back to the alternate future together.  This time, the barren wasteland is all that's left after Discord, Sombra, and Tirek have destroyed each other and everything else around them.  From there, Starlight would realize that her actions resulted in this path, and undo the damage to the timeline.  However, she would also reject Twilight's offer of friendship, instead leaving to do some soul-searching.  This would also allow her to come back in later episodes and actually develop as a character, instead of simply having her personality do a complete 180 because "FRIENDSHIP!"


Anyway, I would appreciate if someone could give me their take on this.

E-093 by Xeno-the-Hedgehog
E-093
Based on the articles related to SCP-093.  I never thought being crap at anatomy would come in handy, but here we are.  I had initially wanted their arms to look like sticky hand toys; the kind that you slap it against the wall and it peels off.  At least that's what the description in the article made it sound like.  Unfortunately, some of the image got cut off due to the size of the paper, but I think it looks a little better this way.  I'm particularly proud of that stop sign.

As with the other pumpkin I carved this year, this one was carved out from the bottom, the mouth and nostrils were carved entirely with the fruit carvng knife, the eye sockets were made with the apple corer, and a pair of plastic ping pong eyeballs were inserted into the sockets.  I really like how it looked with the candle lighting it from within, even if the lack of proper ventilation and consequent lack of oxygen meant that it didn't stay lit for very long.

decided to simplify things this year due to lack of time.  I carved out the bottom instead of the top because I heard that the pumpkin will hold its shape better that way.  for the pupils, nostrils, and teeth, I used an apple corer, while a fruit carving knife was used for the straight edges.

I enjoy all fields of art and science.

I have a soft spot for cats.

I like to work with my hands.

I cannot bring myself to kill an animal, regardless of species.

I have a paralyzing phobia of wasps. A couple of years back, I came home to a house full of them.

I believe that violent cartoons and video games do not result in bad children. Careless, ignorant parents result in bad children.

My dad is a Star Trek fan.

I collect Transformers, Godzilla Movies, Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, My Little Pony figurines, and ALIEN memorabilia, among other things.

My favorite books include Life of Pi by Yann Martel, and the one-volume printing of Bone by Jeff Smith.

My favorite artists and authors include H.R.Giger, Clive Barker, Tim Burton, Don Hertzfeldt, Al Hirschfeld, and Rod Serling, to name a few.

I'm a huge fan of the Silent Hill franchise.

I don't understand why New Jersey is the butt of so many jokes. I've lived here for over ten years, and I don't see anything wrong with it.

I graduated from the college where my parents first met.

Whenever my dad hates one of my sculptures, I know that my professor will love it.

I have an account on Steam

I don't do drugs, I get the same effect from standing up too quickly.

I'm the only member of my household that has never learned to play a musical instrument or read musical notes, but I do have an ear for music.

I have an autistic spectrum disorder.

Growing up, I was teased because I was always the shortest member of any group I hung out with. My height was in the first percentile for children my age, and my growth rate was almost nonexistent, so my parents put me on growth hormone supplement from when I was ten until just before I started college. I am now the tallest living member of my family.

If you bothered to read this entire list, thank you.
