Hello and Welcome to QL'S Guide! I know I already posted earlier today on how to Register your nickname on Canterchat!
Link to it is here!
But for now I want to talk to you about how one should act, and roleplay in the new and improved Canterlot IRC
Irc is a bit different than the old chat, this guide will be broken up into 3 parts
1: Name Etiquette
2: Chatting Etiquette
3: Roleplaying Etiquette
It should BE obvious but you should NEVER use a username that is not yours, and when you first enter the chat we'd like you to do so with your canterlot username so we know who you are.
Never use the name of a Moderator, other user, or a RP Character that doesn't belong to you, this is stealing and also incredibly bad manners.
Another thing to keep in mind is to not constantly spam the room with name changes, this is rude, distracting, and makes it incredibly hard to keep track of everyone, One name change per hour is normally acceptable provided you don't break the above rule of using a name that doesn't belong to you
It is polite to try and enter a conversation, the chat is a space for everyone and nobody should dominate the conversation with their personal topic and excluding others from the conversation.
If the conversation is only for you and a select group of friends feel free to make your own room by typing
Otherwise you should try to include everyone in the conversation as nopony likes to feel left out!
Another point I'd like to bring up is link spam, linking to one or two pictures is fine (marking NSFW content as nsfw if you please) but if all you do is spam pictures you'll probably be asked to stop as it clutters up the window and is kinda annoying.
Language has changed here, minor swears is fine, like
"**** I really hated that episode" or "I really love Cheetos **** it!"
Is fine, but you should never aim a swear or curse at other users, it's not nice, flaming and abuse will not be tolerated in the chat, we want to encourage a friendly, positive atmosphere
Joining the Canterchat Rp is easy, you type
/list into the window and it should bring up a list of the rooms
In Canterchat Rp you need to only play characters you own, don't take on Ocs, or cast characters played by someone else, it's not very nice! This only counts to the public room however Be whoever you want in your own private rooms! However stuff in CanterRp is only canon with a cast character if they decide it is
Some users like to do "chat style" rp in the rp room and that's fine, but you should always check with all parties involved as some of us (me in particular) prefer paragraph style similar to the boards
Overall you should remember to be polite, courteous, and considerate of your fellow users, and treat them as you would like to be treated !
I hope this guide helped and I look forward to chatting with you all!
Sincerely the Queen of Ravens
I need to choose one of the three below poems for school. Which one do you think is "best" in your opinion? (Ignore the numbers beside the titles-it's the word count of the poem. )It's for presentations:
A Dream Within a Dream-144
BY EDGAR ALLAN POE
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow —
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
Ira, or anger;
Anger, or wrath.
I am a Wraith,
A creature of the future,
A shadow of the past,
I exist to remind-
To guide you along paths,
To help you choose.
I will help you evolve
You give me power-
So I’ll be honest,
I will give you parts
I will give you Ira,
You give me strength.
You cry and tear at life.
I will aid you-
In your conquest.
You want me,
though you are taught-
To refuse me.
To accept me,
I possess you.
You ask me-
And I answer.
You are I.
I am you.
You talk of pain,
You speak of horror,
“How could they?”
The world has turned
Therefore you, too.
You ask me to take away
And the angst.
You are filled with frustration.
You cry for me,
Beg for me.
I grab you, and
Take you home,
Befor eyou can be taken
My sister Tristitia;
Where dire circumstances go.
You are on earth,
And she will bring
Demons of Hell.
You call to me,
And push me away as taught.
I embrace you:
All you feelings
All your emotions
And I will give you Ira.
Rage, to take it all away.
Zelus, and jealous
“I want that”~
Is how they describe me.
Yet not owned.
They call me a feeling
But what am I?
I am alive.
Something that lurks
Only within darkness
I reach and chase
Trapped by own ambition
Confined by self-boundaries
I break free,
Then keep imitation
I am a shadow
A hidden gem
To seem non-sentient
I seem to follow you
You think I wish to?
Every movement you make
But I make it too
Because I must
I’m your shadow
Everything you force me
Everything you force me
A pulse in my heart
The start of a volcano
About to erupt
I could stop it,
Or I could let it run
Because it hurts.
It hurts to follow you,
It hurts to imitate you,
It hurts to be your
It stings when they
Talk to you
Like I don’t even exist.
And then the lava starts
To leak out
Then it starts to change
I start evolving
My brothers and sisters:
Ira to anger,
Tristitia to sadness,
Dolor to pain,
Inlacrimati to resent,
Invidia to envy,
Begin taking over me.
What I feel is what you get;
What you get is who you are;
Who you are is who I am:
WOW. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START. SERIOUSLY.

LET'S GO ON A ROAD TRIP TO SAVE THE WORLD!! Final Fantasy XV thoughts/experiences.
Well hello there!
You're here either because you love me, awful food, both, or you hate me, awful food or both.
Regardless of the reason, you're here now, and that makes you an accomplice whether you like it or not! Our bond is unbreakable, because this dish will astound and terrify! It's not safe to go alone!
I present to you, NYDMC (Nidmac, if you prefer!)
I came up with this while experimenting with Mac and Cheese. Just the same old junk is too generic. Too predictable.
So I made it better! With this delicious, heart-stopping dish, you won't know which way is up! Will it send your tastebuds on a creamy, cheesy journey? Build some tastebuds character with a bacony crunch? Or will it sucker punch you in your stupid jaw with surprise buffalo fire? Always expect the unexpected!
Its a love hate relationship you'll always crawl back to.
Here's what you need:
-Macaroni (Obvious! Any will do)
-Cheeses: I used velveeta and ground pepper jack, but if you like a runnier cheese you can always use those kraft cheese powder packs. You can get creative here, really. Use your favorite!
-Blue cheese (crumbled would be best)
-Bacon (Canadian, turkey, whatever you have on hand or prefer)
-Chicken (raw would be best, though if you're not sure of yourself I won't tell if you use pre-cooked)
-Buffalo flavoring (I use Frank's Red)
-Mixed veggies (Once again, preference! I used shredded carrots and celery)
-Pepper (If desired)
-A strong soul (Yours, champ!)
Its a lot of multitasking, so make sure you have a good amount of space.
First, you'll want to cut up your veggies and prepare your cheeses. Easy! Just don't cut yourself. Blood has an iron-y taste and ruins the flavor.
You should start with the chicken. If it's pre-cooked, follow those boring instructions instead. If not, you'll want to get cutting again. Have a pan hot and ready to go so once you get the chicken into small enough cubes to eat whole, you can toss them in. Once you do, make sure to keep an eye on them! You want to get all the red cooked out, but don't over do it! Once you feel you have it at a point you're comfortable with (and fully cooked, don't mess around) you can put the chicken in a bowl and save it for later.
Once that's done, you can turn up the heat! Of your stove! Bring some water to a boil and toss your macaroni in there. Bonus points if you slam dunk it without burning yourself! Make sure to constantly stir and watch it to make sure you don't burn them, which would suck. If you have to, turn the heat down.
When they're finished, drain the macaroni and set it aside. Add your cheeses and stir until they're thoroughly melted and mixed!
Next, the bacon! Bacon is fairly quick to cook, and to what point is by preference. HOWEVER. If you want an easier time cutting it for the Mac and cheese, you'll want it crispy. Once it's done, turn off the stove! Collect your bacon and crumble it up into little pieces. As small as you can manage, or to whatever you prefer.
The last steps are simple. Add the buffalo to your chicken, then add the bacon and veggies and chicken to the macaroni! If you need to, throw the whole thing back on the stove real quick to melt the cheese again and give it all a quick stir.
Then, you're done! Wahoo!
Analysis: No this is not good for me. It might be good for you but not for me. It IS delicious though. I just need to keep in mind to have the hospital on speed dial. And I need to look up US law to see if it's legal to marry food anywhere.
Would you be shocked? I wouldn't.
These had to be the worst and best months in my life.There are small bits of humor.
The Best of Janurary.

Got permabanned from mlpforums. Got a 0/30 on test due to cheating. Got banned from /r/TwoXChromosones. Now the whole 8 people family is sick, thanks little sis.
Okay. First off, I'd like to say sorry.
I dissapeared without notice, and I know I broke a LOT of roleplays.
I'm so, so sorry. So many things happened to me so quickly, and... To be honest, none of them were good. I got caught up in real life, and my health too.
I know that you guys say we should put real life first, but I definitely don't wanna forget you guys!
So... let me explain what happened.
A while back, during our cadet graduation, I was busy enough already. With all the preparations and invitations, my schedule was pretty packed, but the graduation went off pretty smoothly. It was what happened the night later that really screwed everything up.
On the same day as cadet graduation, was a school concert, "Fusion". It was a advertised as a night of fun and craziness. And craziness was what it really was.
Ok, the concert? It was pretty good, even though I had to stand sentry duty along with my fellow junior officers. I was stationed along a walkway, almost directly aligned with the stage. The concert was ending, they were starting to clean up, people were starting to leave. We weren't allowed to leave post just yet.
They were transferring everything from the stage onto big, metal carts, all made to roll down the way to where I was stationed. Now, at this point, it was basically free time for us officers, roaming around and checking of any people were hiding around on school grounds. I never left my post, though.
A couple of my friends were hanging out with me during that time. I was pretty distracted during that time.
As I leaned down to tie up my loose combat boots, I didn't even hear the sound of a securing cable snap. My friends were laughing.
I looked up in time to see a cart rolling down. I also looked up in time to shove my friend out of the way. My right foot got caught in the wheel. And now I'm stuck going back and forth between the hospital and home, after spending a LONG time in the hospital after the incident. I have dual fractures on my fifth metatarsal, a single fracture on my third and second, and a really badly twisted up heel. Whatever that means. So my foot's in a really heavy cast, and under constant monitoring. I can't walk properly, even with crutches. It still hurts to move my foot.
Soooo, yeah. But I'm not in the hospital anymore, so yeah. I'm sorta back?
TL;DR, My foot is really, really broken. I'm sorry for all the roleplay stuff I broke too.
So here comes a rather reluctant emo post from me about my status and loneliness..
While I am living with my partner, I feel that we are drifting apart, and this is an open relationship, but this and not having a female partner coupled with my assessemnt I have to do for college, I am stressing out like there is no tomorrow
this week had the nth Scanner,quickly growing tired of that, lose a couple of hours going to the hospital, don´t eat from 4 hours before, strip on the buff, put on a paper toga, go to the machine (that looks like a giant donut) stab in the arm with something (that makes me queasy ) and some hours later they release you, still lightheaded, put your clothes back on, leave the TCR area eat something expensive from the vending machines, and wait 4 hours for your transport to pick you up...
Also, the guy who invented body scanners surely did it for dead users (because I took on last year enough radiation for 40 lives)
With how school is going so far, and everything, i might have time to actually make music at school and bring it home converted into a MP3 file, with some pictures which i might be able to put on youtube. If i manage this, which i hopefully will thanks to some friends, im going to revive this idea. I'm going to try and make around one a month, hopefully. Though it might be less then that. Il do a update a week, which i definitly will do.
Now that that is out of the way, question for all of you. What is your favorite kind of music? With lyrics? Instrumental? Sad? Fast? Slow? I know, details, but if i know i might be able to actually make something that you would enjoy! Its a chance, but its a fun one to take!!

I had the strangest dream last night...it was like being in the middle of a League game. The only difference was, it was me and my 5 player team vs. this other team that was like "a city of people". Literally. The other team occupied the entire area of their turret property and made it nearly impossible to walk through cause there was so many people on the other team. Everyone in the other team had abilities and weapons, and so did everyone on my team. Other than me. I was carrying a bomb. Every game, I would carry the bomb with one or two other members from my team-running to the nexus. My small group of two/three would them run into the inhibitor turret, and then meet the other three/two members of our team (they were trying to destroy enemy turrets). I would then plant the bomb there, and they would activate it with their abilities (cause this bomb only reacted to abilities, apparently). Then-we would run. We would run and run and run and try to get back to our base and nexus...but we would never make it. Apparently, everyone in the other team was (sleeping?) while my team was getting the bomb into their nexus. As soon as the bomb was planted and my team would run away, everyone in the other team would wake up. Remember how I said that team was like a city of people? Yeah. They would OP us, then destroy the bomb (somehow). And my team would lose...every time. Somehow, we never thought to change our plan of attack or strategy, and we lost every single game.
So...yeah. That's my League dream. It was horrible. But it was really fun, at the same time!
I created an extra blog just for extra stuff like this.
Allow me to remind everyone on here the "challenges" I COMPLETED in which if I COMPLETED them (which I did) I'd NEVER have to watch a certain Equestria Girls movie EVER.
With this reminder I hope to be left alone about this issue once again:
Equestria Girls 1 (the first one):
Beat Persona 3 FES "The Answer"
PAIN IN THE YOU-KNOW-WHAT but this was the beginning of my "be persistent until I win" mentality. Either way I completed it and beat it.
Equestria Girls 2 (Rainbow Rocks):
Beat Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII a.k.a. Final Fantasy XIII-3
I struggled on the normal difficulty so I had to start over from the beginning of the game on Easy. HOWEVER, I then made up for this by beating the TWO hardest bosses in the game. That pretty much makes the challenge COMPLETED.
Equestria Girls 3 (Friendship Games):
Beat the Kingdom Hearts HD Remix Games or Beat any optional bosses in any of the games.
I've beaten SEVERAL optional bosses already. Which means I can declare this challenge COMPLETED any time I wish. The most impressive being Lingering Will obviously.
But since I haven't beaten Birth By Sleep yet it's technically not over. Still ongoing. Though the fact that I've already beaten SEVERAL optional bosses basically makes this challenge COMPLETED.
Equestria Girls 4 (???):
To Be Determined.
Challenge possibilities depending on when it comes out:
Beat Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon (I've heard it's hard)
Beat Final Fantasy XV
Beat Persona 5
With this reminder...
Leave me alone about it please.
What exactly is a mother? As far as I’ve been told… or what “normal” society has leaded me to believe, a mother is someone who protects their young. Whenever a child is collapsing, a mother is supposed to be their support, to keep that child from falling. A mother provides unconditional love, and the best care that is within their power as a human being to provide. It is the mother’s job to fill a painful crater within a child’s heart, and make them feel wanted… Make them feel like they belong in this world.
Then why is it that I still have that crater?
Even since I was a defenseless infant, my own mother never had any intentions to protect me… to give me all of those things mentioned above. Whenever I began to collapse, she would much rather hit the bottle to keep herself from collapsing, without any regard for me. I was completely heartbroken when I found out that my mother only gave birth to be because the government feels sorry for homeless women who have children. She never saw me as a son, she saw me as her “ticket”.
There was one time I was sitting in church, and they had a few children explain how they knew their mother loved them. And I sat through ten minutes of hearing replies along the lines of: “She takes care of me.” “She comforts me when I’m sad.” “She goes out of her way to provide for me.”
Hearing all of this, I was completely unsure of how I should react. I couldn’t cry, since my tear duds ran dry years ago. I was just… confused.
When I hear about someone’s mother passing away, I do feel sympathy for them… but I can never in my life say that I know how it feels without lying to their face. Because I don’t know how it feels, and I fear that I will never know.
Now, I’m an adult, and I’ve moved on… for the most part. To this day, I still have that deep, painful crater in my soul that will probably never be filled. People have told me countless times to forget, but it’s easier said than done. Thing like this that happen… you can’t just forget it. I’d like to say that I’m used to it, but I can’t say that, because it bothers me every day. The fact that I never had a mother, and most likely never will.
Hello everypony! My name has changed to Flying Colors as i have removed the temporary oc Candy Star as my ponysona and made the new one permanent. So i've also revised my whole channel as well, but the videos i made will still be there as well.
And now with out further delay, here is the link to my channel:
So here's a video that i think needs to be seen:
Have a good winter everypony, and see you for the next winter wrap up!
In the throne room, Queen Black Hole awaits Dimmed Star's arrival. It's been harder and harder to keep her apprentice on a tight leash since that power was given to her. Thoughts ran through her head as she thought about the different outcomes, each worse than the last. "So much potential, but so little time...," Queen Black Hole thought to herself, so much is riding on this that they can't afford to fail.
Dimmed Star melts through the floor and rises from the black blood, taking form once more. Now in front of her mentor, she could only sit there and listen. "Dimmed Star, I'm very disappointed in you. When i gave you this power, I expected you to be able to control yourself." said Queen Black Hole as she scolded her student harshly. "Do you not want this new power? Shall i take it away?" she asked, looking down to Dimmed star again.
Knowing that she may lose her chance to take over the throne, Dimmed Star exclaimed, "No! Please don't..." she begged, hoping Black Hole wouldn't do so.
But a sense of danger makes her feel uneasy as Black Hole descends the stairs to come down to her and takes a seat in front of her. "Then show me you have what it takes...prove me wrong and master these powers i have given you." suggested Black Hole. Dimmed star nodded, and starts to leave the room.
Before she could, her path is blocked by Sloth; she had been watching the entire time as her friend got scolded. "Better watch your back, Dimmed Star, the queen isn't playing around." warned Dull Sloth, smirking as she walked past her.
Lately i've come across some really distasteful characters, and not one of them has said, "I'm sorry". This is a huge problem in society, which leaves some mentally scarred, or worse. This is my experience with one such person:
I wanted to play some BF, and relax with a few rounds of multiplayer. I'm about half way done when i hear this guy say something about me being a retarded kid, mind you i usually ignore these kinds of trash talk, but today i was stressed. I had completed several requests for mane six drawings, and i need this to relieve the stress. in my fifth match, i hear the words: "Go kill yourself, the world would be better without you." This just made me stop, how could someone be so damn heartless? I never did anything to deserve that, maybe he found out i was a brony or something? I'm not sure.
That right there just crossed the line for me, so here's what i said:
"fun fact: if you tell someone to kill themselves, it’s considered encouraging suicide, and you can get a fine of $25,000 and 10+ years in prison. if they actually commit you can be charged with manslaughter. so really it’s in your best interest not to be a total ass."
He never spoke to me again.
Before you read this, please know that my grammar isn't always on the mark, and i do mess up sometimes, so if you see any thing wrong please let me know. Also i thought this music would help set the mood for the theme.
It's finally time for the final confrontation with Tainted Mist, both had been waiting for this very day, Lightning takes her place in front of the others, "Tainted! This all ends today! Let me show you why..."
"Pathetic fillies, if i knew this was going to happen... I would have done away with you from the start." Tainted is furious at this unfortunate turn of events.
After hearing enough from Tainted, Lightning interjects, "We both have different ideas on what's pathetic. Cause if you ask me, pathetic is a monster like you getting beaten by somepony like me."
Amused, Tainted smirks and replies, I admire your ability to keep making threats, we both know how empty they are, but it's starting to get old!" annoyed with Lightning's constant boasting, she charges forward.
"Lightning? Can you hear me?" asks Princess Celestia, who is watching from the mirror in Canterlot Castle.
Before she can get another word out of her mouth, Luna, her sister comes inside, curious as to what's happening, "Sister, what's wrong? What is it?" asks Luna, concerned about the current situation at hoof.
Celestia can't believe her eyes, "It's incredible, they're so evenly matched. Lightning is keeping up with Tainted so well, and matching her blow for blow. But they're running out of time, if they don't stop fighting like this, Lightning won't stand a chance." Luna walks up next to her sister and takes a look for herself and gets a glimpse of The Prism Force.
Still not sure why Lightning would be in trouble, she asks, "But you said she was doing fine." Tainted has taken a real beating, but refuses to give up.
Celestia nods, agreeing with Luna. But something is wrong, it's as if Tainted isn't fighting at full strength, at least not yet. "Yes, but if the transformation ends... and it will, the fight will be be lost. Lightning must hurry and end this before it's too late."
It's hard enough that she must sit by and watch, but Luna feels there must be a way they can assist, "Sister, there must be something we can do to save Lightning Flicker, right?" asks Luna.
Again Celestia tries to calm her sister's fears, "Luna, I understand how you feel. But you charging in will only create more problems for Lightning. It's all up to them now, they are our last hope. Have faith, sister." Luna seems to stop pacing around aimlessly and continues to watch the battle unfold.
Back on the battlefield, Lightning and Tainted are at a standstill, none have made a move and yet a smile seems to come Tainted for some reason. "Well now, Lightning, are you having second thoughts about challenging a superior pony like me? I cannot be defeated! Not by you or anypony else!" making the first move she runs toward Lightning, but is sent reeling back by solid hoof to her face.
Angry and frustrated, she shouts to lightning, "You annoying fool!" before she can block it, Lightning is hit by a spell and is sent skidding back, panting heavily. "Well now, satisfied?" asks Tainted, seeming to smile at her foes expense.
But Light is still a bit winded, but manages to speak, "Is that the best you can do?" asked Lightning, almost seeming to laugh.
Confused, Tainted tilts her head, "What?"
Lightning repeats her last words, "I said, is that the best you can do?"
Not amused by Lightning's words, Tainted shouts loudly, "Watch your tongue!" again Tainted comes at her, but is quickly anticipated and countered and struck in the chest and returns with a few repetitions and a swift buck to send her back, hooves digging into the ground so Tainted can stop herself.
Losing her temper, Tainted screams out in anger, "Damn it! I swear i'll repay every last blow you've dealt me ten fold, no! A hundred fold! Your time is up, Lightning."
But suddenly Lightning says something Tainted never expected, "It's Done."
Again Tainted is unsure what this means, their fight had only just begun. "What do you mean, done? Well? Answer me! Why are you giving up?"
It should have been obvious to Tainted, but Lightning humors her by explaining: "You've been coming at me with everything you've got, but it's finally caught up with you, your magic energy is falling fast. The fact is, I don't see the point in fighting you anymore. Your pride is already shot, and in the end... That's god enough for me." Tainted cannot believe her own ears, this pony is mocking her abilities.
Lightning continues her explanation, "You were so sure of your own power, you never imagined anypony could bring you down...especially me." Lightning smirks at Tainted, and keeps going. " heh, now you know what failure feels like. You see... I don't want to keep fighting you because I've already won." says Lightning with a smile.
"So go crawl off somewhere and hide, i don't really care. Like I said, it's done. Your days of terrorizing other ponies is over, I don't ever want to see your face again." Lightning suddenly releases the transformation, returning to her normal state.
Feeling mocked, Tainted is angry ad seems ready to attack again, "Why you! That is the last straw." Lightning turns her back to tainted and starts to fly off. "You lie! I am not beaten, not yet!" Tainted sends a blast of crystals at Lightning, getting her immediate attention.
Now Lightning is disappointed, Tainted was given a chance to give up her evil ways, but chose to throw her life away. "I warned you! But you didn't listen; I gave you one last chance to walk away, and you blew it!" shouts lightning as she transforms back into the Prism force once again. I will say it once more: There's no point in fighting you anymore like this, especially if you're resorting to ameatuer spells like that one." Knowing how much Tainted wants this fight to end in her favor, it's just not worth it anymore.
She can see Tainted wants this fight, but at the same time would prefer Tainted just leave. "If you really want to decide a winner, then fine... But first build your magic back up and learn a few new spells." said Lightning in a sassy tone.
I don't usually join mlp forums as soon as I see them, but the reason for that is because of personal experiences. So many to count, and yet some I have rather enjoyed. Since I'm not allowed to name which ones, I will simply state my experiences below:
The first forum I joined turned out to be fun as the days went past, even made some great friends. But eventually every good experience comes to an end, especially when it involves a member or two trying to push my buttons on purpose. It turns out that one member saw my opinion as offensive, which I stated that a gaming journalists need to be aware that this profession requires some sort of passion to really write a good story or two(also that the person who wrote the one I read recently was a bit uneducated as to what the job implied).
Sure, it was bit overboard, but I was being honest about it. But that opinion didn't give that person the right to bring one of my fics into a topic in which it was irrelevant to. That set me off, and I lost all sense of reasoning I had left. This led to me getting 125 warning points(which I would have worked off), but my Asperger's led to me getting more upset than a normal person would be. Them saying I went on a righteous crusade was a bit much, it was more of a expression of my feelings, then a revenge rant. But then again, who keeps track of those things anyway?
And then came a time where I had unwittingly posted a suicide prank video, when I meant to post a link to another one. I never said I laughed at the joke, but the idiot who decided this was the best way to get back at people who trolled others with threats. But I do admit it was my fault for not paying attention to what link I had copied, too late now, I guess. But now on to the next charge, Plagiarism. This involved me posting images I thought were ones I made myself, but had convinced myself they were indeed mine.
Me and the admin talked about it, and still I persisted in my claims, not even thinking about it once. So you see... I have learned from my mistake and make sure from now on that I only submit art of my own creation, much better now I suppose.
Next we have the charge of Abuse and Toxic behavior, not sure how that came to be, but oh well. I'm never abusive or toxic, that would imply that I harassed or tried to make someone else uncomfortable or worse... Though I suppose it may or may not be true, anyone's guess. This happened again after a new event in which I was verbally assaulted by another member, but won't say who due to policy. He soon apologized thereafter, but it seemed my reason left me again; getting me another count added to the point meter. That's about all I need to say here for that.
Now we move on to the main issue, the ban itself. Sure, it was only two screw ups, but nothing to get me kicked off for. The one thing some of the staff of forums need to know is: Nobody's perfect, we all have those moments where we slip up and do something we regret later. As of today, I have decided not to respond negatively to such insults, and rude behavior.
For this is my promise I will keep, and never will I ever break it.
Huh. I just pranked my friends. Bigtime. In a very, elaborate and big prank.
So...I have different Google accounts, one for myself and one for spam and accounts. I have a group chat in my personal account, where I came up with the brilliant idea to prank my friends on the chat. I added my spam account into the group chat, and used a pm to each friend (a single-person pm) to tell them that they need not worry, and that the randomly added person was also me. Now, they're all blindly playing and chatting with my spam account, believing that only they themselves knew of the prank and working hard to keep others from thinking that it is a prank. I'm laughing so hard right now...can't wait to reveal it to them in the grande finale that they were part of the grande prank act!
Yes! A special entry in the book! This time it's not a recipe I have to recite from memory and tell about my past experience! This time, I have pictures!
Also, this pie is made entirely from scratch. Another pure creation (the other being my Adult Disfigured Samurai Shrimp). This was a labor of love, as this pie is very sentimental.
A very special thanks to Quicklime for this determined suggestion!
Today we'll make a Cinnamon Butterscotch pie! Or Butts Pie in layman's terms.
Just like mom used to make!
I would also suggesting listening to the Ruins OST from Undertale while baking this.
Okay, so I actually had to go digging for a recipe for this, because never in my life have I made butterscotch. Here I was making butterscotch AND putting it in a pie! So I was way out of my element. But it came out fantastic. Yes, I broke my rule and used measurements this time, but again, I was out of my element and didn't want to screw it up. Not that I can screw it up anyway, because I'm perfect.
Oh, I also had my girlfriend to help me on this. Cuz she's awesome and perfect too.
I made a couple of tweaks to the recipe I found that I think worked out okay.
So, what you'll need:
Egg (1 yolk and a whole egg)
brown sugar (yes I know it's listed twice shhhh)
egg yolks (9 of them)
So first for the pie crust, we need to add the first three ingredients together. Your dry ingredients!
You should also cut up your cold butter (I cheated and left it out to soften) and mix it into your dry ingredients. I used my hands cuz I don't have a whisk and a fork was a pain in the butt.
Mix em up til it looks like this
Should kinda look like Parmesan cheese, which gives me a great prank idea if the opportunity ever presents itself.
At this point you need to add the egg yolk and mix it in.
Oh, if you can, have a local lesser dog inspect it for you to make sure you did it right.
At this point you're gonna add your cinnamon (for the crust, don't jump the gun) and water. Carefully add water and mix everything together until it looks like playdoh.
Also make sure it isn't actually playdoh.
I tried to make a goatmom face. It didn't work.
Once you do that, you're going to want to refrigerate it for awhile. Again, I cheated and put it in the freeze for a couple minutes.
Then put it in the pie tin! If you have extra dough, do something fun with it. Like make mom cookies!
Your lesser dog will confirm if it's good.
You know you want to.
ANYWAY, once that's done, pop that sucker in the oven.
To start on the filling while that's going, you want to cook some brown sugar and water, your butter, and your milk and cream all in seperate pots on medium heat. You want the brown sugar to bubble showly, the butter to brown, and the liquid stuff to steam. Once either of those meet their requirement, shut off the heat or switch it to low.
The rest of the stuff, your 9 yolks, brown sugar, cinnamon and corn starch you'll want to mix is a bowl separate from everything else.
It should look like barf, which makes me wanna... Well, barf.
After that's all taken care of, add the browned butter to the brown sugar on the stove and mix them. Then do the same with the liquid stuff but SLOWLY. Once that's done, stir it constantly. Once it's mixed, mix the barf in with that and mix them together. Also turn the heat back on.
Stir constantly, or else stuff will stick. It'll thicken quickly, and once it does, it should look like light brown-colored barf.
At this point, take your crust out of the oven and put the barf in it. Then put it in the oven. I did it at about 400 degrees but the recipe calls for lower.
Then after about 20 minutes, turn the heat off and let it sit for another 20 minutes in the oven. After that, you're done!
True to life, it has to sit for a couple hours to be cutable. It should make a cheesecakey kind of texture when all's said and done.
I put the mom cookie on top because that's fun.
I would never turn my nose up at this if it were on my plate. It's surprisingly delicious and it fills me with determination. Also it's perfect with a little whipped cream or ice cream.
I'm not crying you're crying shut up
EDIT: The recipe I followed can be found here:
Heh..... I was able to get through the list of RPs I planned way back last year. Couldn't hurt to begin early this year, right? So here's what I hope to accomplish over the next several months:
New magic counseling thread for Ingrid Marie, as a sequel to her old one.
Svengallop giving a journalist misleading info about Countess Coloratura.
Now that I got Derpy back, she needs to cause mayhem in Ponyville every now and then.
Moony and pals detecting traces of dark magic coming from... the Crystal Heart???! (read my Sombra app for background info)
King Sombra in hiding encounters... potential bride material, muahahahaha.
Prof. Morianna Razorclaw attempting to bring Griffonstone back into the Aquellian fold.
This time around, I have absolutely no OC concepts I wanna work on. Unlike with my RP ideas, I got almost nowhere with OCs last year. The only one I did app wasn't even planned! In all honesty, I'm pretty content with my character roster right now. From this point onward, apping characters will be a pretty rare occurrence for me.
HOWEVER...... with WoE's new acceptance of AU-based roleplays, I just may cook up a dark AU featuring a dark lord of mine.....
Are you ready Canterlot?
Are you ready to be enlightened?
This is the shepherd that will lead your flock to true delicious. It will protect you and watch over you as you graze on cheese, crust, and hotdogs. It will fight off the wolves of healthy diets and tofu.
This is the pizza
That will love you back.
It's been far too long since I've given you all something to seize over. This little idea actually came to me in a skype conversation with our own Robikku Pegasus (Thaaaank yooooouuu ). I've worked it all out in the pink brain-meats in my skullbucket.
Now, I have to caution you all:
THIS IS STRICTLY A CONCEPT. I HAVE NOT YET CONSTRUCTED THIS. ATTEMPT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Now, as for what you'll need:
-Corn (frozen will do)
-Canned chili beans (preferably with spicy sauce)
So the concept here is to construct the illegitimate child of a shepherd's pie and a chili dog. In a pizza. The pizza is like the cradle I guess.
OKAY! So, obviously the first thing you're going to want to do is get started on the pizza itself. This will probably work best if we just bake the crust first, leaving it empty. So do that! Make sure it's in a decent bowl-y shape to hold the other components.
Then, the interior stuffing of the pizza. To do this, we're going to use the groundwork for a basic shepherd's pie. Cook your mashed potatoes, add your corn and ground beef, and MIX. Oh, and make sure you cook the beef and corn too. Yeah. Do that.
Make sure you save some of the ground beef for the second portion. What good chili doesn't have ground beef? Don't answer that, because it's entirely possible to have a phenomenal chili without ground beef but that doesn't matter right now.
So what you want to do now is make some chili! This is where the rest of the hamburger, beans and sauce come in. SAVE THE CHILI POWDER. It will all make sense soon, shhhhhhhhhhhh...
This is also where you can throw in your optional ingredients. Personally, the garlic and sausage appeal to me most, but you can really add anything. Celary, onions, more meat, additional seasoning, whatever suits your fancy for a wonderful chili.
While the chili is cooking, it may also be a good idea to boil some hotdogs. You're gonna make a lot of dishes for the sake of this lovely being.
Once it's made, you'll want to drain it a bit. Excess sauce will just make this more difficult than it has to be. Pour some of this chili on top of the pie mix and make kindof a bullseye. Spread it out from there so that it covers the surface.
Now, the tricky part. ADD CHEESE.
Spread it over this pizza as much as you like, and then throw it back in the oven until it melts. Everything else is already cooked, so you're golden!
Once the cheese is melted, cut up some of your boiled hotdogs into slivers, top the pizza with it, and THEN give it all a dusting of chili powder.
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!?!
I don't know, as I said I haven't made this yet. It's strictly in it's concept phase. However, I'm weak in the knees just thinking about it. I'll make sure to update this entry once I've actually cooked it.
Huh. I just felt an earthquake. It was apparently from one of the islands in and about Victoria, and had a magnitude of 4.9. Things shook. Nothing broke or was damaged though. Just kinda scared me. Meh. 'Twas strange indeed (but not anything too strange, I do live in a high earthquake risk area, after all). Ironic-considering that earthquakes are my topic of study currently in school. Now I feel less scared. Are we all okay (especially directed to any members living near/in the area)?
