Is there shipping? I might be interested if there’s shipping.

Oh, there’s shipping like you wouldn’t believe, so the point that it’s actually a game mechanic.

When characters help each other in battle – assisting each other’s attacks, healing each other – they improve their support levels. This not only improves how much they help each other in battle, but also unlocks progressive story conversations between the two. Some relationships (unfortunately, only those between male and female characters) can progress all the way to an S-Level support conversation, at which point, the two characters are actually married.

And apparently, at some point in the game, you start playing as the children of these married couples. (I only know this from Internet osmosis; I’m only up to chapter nine, but I’ve been working really hard on these relationships because I don’t know when the time skip is.)

Eternally behind on games as always, I’ve started playing Fire Emblem: Awakening. And I’ve learned two things so far: that this game really is as fantastic as everyone said, and that I can never play any of the other Fire Emblem games. I seriously would not be able to handle this game without Casual Mode; losing characters with defined personalities and relationships with other characters when they manage to go from full health to dead in one turn… yeah, I can’t deal with that.

To be honest just about any revealing hypothetical costume you can come up with would be more practical for mobility and desert life than OoT Ganon’s leather catsuit under leather armour plus sculpted, seamless, one-piece neck armour/shoulder pauldron thing plus thigh high boots plus back-napkin.

You can tell even Ganondorf himself thought that get-up was ridiculously tight and constricting, considering just how far to the other extreme he went to in Wind Waker.

Some nice loose robes. That’s all Ganondorf ever really wanted.

Playing all the greatest hits from yesterday and today, nummity 101.5, the Donny!

On Saturdays, we do a whole afternoon block of pony music.

"Hello, caller! You’re live on the air!"

"Uh, yeah, hi, Donny. I was just calling about the one-hour block of ‘Smile, Smile, Smile’ on repeat that you just finished …"

"Righto! I can probably toss the song into the mix for later today, too, if you’d like."

"No! I mean, no, that’s okay. I was wondering if maybe you could play something that isn’t ‘Smile, Smile, Smile.’”

"Something … that isn’t …”

"Yes. If you don’t mind."

" …"

" …"

"One hour of ‘Pinkie’s Lament’ on repeat, comin’ right up!"

Okay, no joke, I just got home after going to the grocery store after work, and while I was there, I was listening to pony songs. And when “Smile, Smile, Smile” finished playing, I replayed it. Over and over again.

What I’m saying is that I fully endorse Donny’s radio programming choices.

I tend to binge on songs, listening to them on repeat until I reach the point of being utterly sick of them, so that’s where the idea came from.

But at least my completely fictional radio show will have one listener. :)

I’m right there with you, Donny. Right there with you.

"I could show them, when they’re old enough. I can say ‘This is his first episode on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and this is the prom episode where I realized I really liked this guy, then Mommy freaked out and we didn’t date for a year.’"

On the drive to work this morning, I happened to hear John Legend’s “All of Me” on the radio. Almost immediately I started trying to decide which pony ship it matches up with, which is what I do with pretty much every love song I hear. I decided the song is Twinkie. Very, very Twinkie.

But more…

Just listened to it and you are totally right on! Someone please do a PMV of it now! :D

SWEET SWEET VALIDATION. :D

There should totally be a PMV. Ideally alternating between Pinkie and Twi as the “narrator.”

But Donny… You make PMV’s sometimes…

Shhhhhhh! Don’t let the secret get out!

I’ve made, like, three Twinkie PMVs now? I think? I gotta make some more FlutterPie PMVs before I can make any more Twinkie ones, otherwise I’m pretty sure I forfeit the right to claim FlutterPie as my OTP.

I fail to see how that’s a bad thing.

"Leap of Faith" Spoilers

Later…

"To save Equestria, we need the power contained within this box! Everypony have their keys?"

"Keys? What keys?"

"You know, the key that transformed from the object you got after teaching somepony about your element!"

"What? I just got one lousy bit after I taught that Silver Shill fella about honesty!"

"That’s it then! Where is that bit?"

"Well, I spent it, of course! What else would I do with a bit?"

And thus Equestria was doomed.

Do you hear that? I believe that is the mighty cheers of the TwiDashers.

Do you hear the TwiDashers sing?
Singing the song of purple and blue.
This is the music of a ship which will set forth strong and true!

It’s interesting how the ever-expanding summaries of the upcoming episodes can change one’s perception (and possibly one’s anticipation) for that episode.

Case in point: “Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3.”

The first synopsis gave us “Rainbow Dash uses unconventional methods to prepare for her test to become a member of the Wonderbolts Reserves.” Alright, it’s kind of retreading ground from “Wonderbolts Academy,” though it makes sense for a group as elite as the Wonderbolts to have all these progressive steps to join them.

And then we got a slightly longer “Rainbow Dash wants more than anything to become a member of the prestigious Wonderbolts Reserves, but worries that she may not be able to pass the entrance exam; Rainbow Dash goes to extreme measures to prepare for the Wonderbolts’ test.” And okay, now I see how it might be different from “Wonderbolts Academy;” this time it might be Dash herself taking some questionable actions.

But then we get the Hub press release for April, which always has the most detailed synopsis, and, well…

"Rainbow Dash is preparing to take her test on the history of the Wonderbolts; a test she must pass in order to become a member of the Wonderbolts Reserves. Twilight offers to help her study, but soon realizes that her conventional methods do not work."

And now suddenly my entire perception of “Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3” has been turned on its ear! Until now, I’d never even considered that this might be a written exam, and now we have Twilight helping Dash study and… yeah. I am looking forward to this episode so much more now.
