Top 12 Problems with Naruto's Final Arc
I leap and roll off of the train and watch it crash off a cliff.
Things have become so stupid, convoluted and contrived that I no longer care about how the Naruto series ends. Kishimoto has demonstrated that he doesn't give a damn about story consistency and he's just going to do whatever the hell he wants regardless of if it makes sense.
It's his story, so technically he can do that. But that doesn't mean that he should.
When a writer just ignores their own set rules and starts doing whatever the hell they want, then it shows in the story and weakens it. Things like Deus Ex Machina/Diabolus Ex Machina are employed when the writer writes themselves into a corner with no other way out; Handwaves are meant to direct the audience away from plotholes so that they can "enjoy" the show; or even jump sharking just to get a cheap reaction from the audience.
There's a lot of them, but some are just symptoms of the disease or signals from noise. Stuff like Naruto disregarding Hinata's
Writing Rants: Short ChaptersI've started "Writing Rants" to let out some steam about various problems with online stories (*cough cough* WATTPAD *cough cough*). This series is meant for every reader/writer. No matter if you're looking for ways to improve your writing, if you've also wanted to rant but could never find the words, or if you simply like rants in general, I hope you will enjoy this series.
Sometimes I will use "Soul" (my fanfiction) as an example for things, but in no way does this mean that I think it's perfect, because it's far from it.
On with the rant!
Let me clarify one thing: I know it's hard to write long chapters, especially for new writers. When I started writing, my chapters were only a couple hundred words long. Heck, I'd be happy if I managed to get over a thousand, let alone the 2000-4000 words I currently write for "Soul". So don't assume that short chapters are automatically bad, because that's not what I'm trying to say. It just really annoys me sometimes when they're short for no
Somepony to Watch Over Me - ReviewThis review will contain spoilers for those who have not seen the latest episode.
The premise of this episode is that Applebloom tries to convince Applejack that she doesn't need her to constantly watch over her all the time.
From that brief description of the premise, you can tell that this episode is going to heavily feature the relationship between Applebloom and Applejack, and on that note I couldn't be more excited for this episode. These two were literally the first siblings introduced in the series and yet, in spite of that, we've had virtually no time whatsoever devoted to their relationship aside from episodes showing the two more as side-characters, or how Applejack regards her family as a whole. This always bugged me as we've seen in the past that episode focusing on siblings, like in "Sisterhooves Social" or my personal favourite episode "A Canterlot Wedding", that such stories can be very good. As such, regardless of what else I may feel about it, I praise the episode for
How to Judge a Book by its CoverWhen it comes to the "literature" from the Young Adult section at the library, I think it's gotten to the point that you can indeed judge a book by its cover.
Just because something is a book, does not mean that it doesn't make you stupid. Sometimes books can be brain-rotting, even more so than a good old, wholesome cartoon, if I may be so bold.
Today I will show you a guide about how to judge a book by its cover; that way you can conveniently know what books to avoid and which you decide are tolerable.
WARNING!!!!!!!! DO NOT CONFUSE THESE FOR GOOD BOOKS THAT HAVE SOME OF THE SAME TRAITS.
Okay, carry on:
Charlie Jackson is a teenage boy who is off to save the world from an evil foe. He and his best friend: Conveniently-Loyal-Steve, the girl he secretly admires for some unknown reason even though she's a huge jerk: Girls-Have-To-Be-Perfect-And-Tough-Or-Else-It's-Sexist-Jane, set off as an "unlikely" trio on a cliche adventure peppered with mostly sarca
Dressed to DecieveHiking in the mountains of Utah, Coty Creighton spotted a goat that didn’t look like the rest of the herd. A closer look revealed that the unusual animal was actually a man dressed as a goat. When authorities contacted the man, he described his costume as a painter’s suit covered in fleece, and he said he was testing his disguise for a hunting trip.
The hunter’s deception reminds me of Jesus’ words: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15). False teachers do not bear the fruit of God’s Spirit. Rather, they “walk according to the flesh…and despise authority” (2 Peter 2:10). They are bold, egotistical, and given to greed. Ruled by their own desires, they exploit people by using deceptive words. The Bible says these wayward spiritual leaders are headed for destruction and will take many unsuspecting and undiscerning people with them.

Logic's Expectations: Rebuild of Evangelion 4.0
To be perfectly blunt, I'm certain that this movie will suck.
Normally, I'm the guy who won't bash an unreleased product and will wait and see before I give a final opinion on if it's good or bad. I went into Soul Calibur V assuming that it would be awesome because previous games in the Soul Calibur series were awesome. I wasn't a huge Final Fantasy fan, but I didn't go from Final Fantasy XII into Final Fantasy XIII expecting the latter to suck, especially since I thought XII was great. I also didn't go into Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0 expecting it to suck after the immensely satisfying experience that I had watching Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0...
Considering my views on Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0, I believe that its fair to go ahead and call the final Rebuild movie a dud.
However, I want you to understand that I didn't come to this assumption lightly and I actually tried to pick at straws and potential ways that this next installment could in fact be good. But Rebuild 3.0 left such a mess
How to do a RP [Tutorial]For everyone who don't know how to do a RP and wants to know how to do it. Here are some of the basic steps you need to know how it works.
What is a RP? It is know as Roleplaying. You play as a certain from TV show or a character that is original.
Step 1: Choose a fandom
This is one of the first things you have to do. You have to choose a fandom that you are gonna do a RP in. If you do a crossover fandom RPs, you need to have an explanation how they got there, don't just put them in because you want to.
Step 2: Choose a character
This is kind of important thing to do before you start a RP, you have to pick a character either be a canon character or an OC, if you do a RP without a character, then people with know that you're playing as yourself. So, yeah picking a character is just simple.
Step 3: Make a plot
Most RPs have to revolve around a certain plot and it has to be where a character gets into these situations or predicaments that it has to have a reasonable p

What happens when you take a brony musician and mix him with Dream Theater, Ayreon, and a bit of Avantasia, with a side touch of Trent Reznor mixing?
You get this album:
HeyLasFas's third album (Or fourth, I cannot be sure), 'Destiny: A Tale of Unicorn Wings'.
What else can I say?It's brony stylized music with a concrete storyline that is something Ajren Lucassen, creator and visionary of Ayreon, would plan for his own albums, combined with the vocal style of Dream Theater's James LeBrie, the mix techniques of Dream Theater meeting po

HomesickI am the river's son,
my arteries flowing turquoise
and turning to rapids
rushing around my frame,
filling me with this sense
of buoyancy, minnows
tickling my sternum.
I am the river's son.
My palms caress each
silty shoreline, every
battered bank and bend,
and these places I know
so well become me
as my fingerprint,
even the bridge above me
inflamed by the afternoon
sun-glow, burning rusty and
the steel blue sky.
I am the river's son;
I bring my home along
like hermit crab,
where I step
I pull water from the earth.
