My Little Road Trip (re-uploaded and fixed) by The-Intimidator
My Little Road Trip (re-uploaded and fixed)
Yo. I was going through my gallery and noticed this drawing... It's not really that bad, but It could be helped. I took one step in helping it out by removing satanic Fluttershy from the image. It took a few seconds to delete her dumbass from the image, but it was worth the struggle. I may or may not re-do this image in pencil one day adding much more detail and a better pony to replace what once was Fluttershy.

Old entry description:
"One of the more difficult drawings I have ever made right here. It sure took a long while to complete, but worth it I guess (based on the attention it gets).
All drawn freehand in MS Paint with just looking off reference points to assure I was drawing the subjects correctly. I also colored it in MS Paint and deepened the colors in Paint.NET so it was easier to see."

If you have a problem with my harsh, descriptive words involving Fluttershy, I suggest you read this:
Let's throw cuteness out of the box (since obviously something being "cute" is a definite opinion based on looks, personality and character traits). Obviously all of the ponies have a general character construction when it comes to looks, it's nothing but the hair, eyes and accessories that vary overall. 

Okay. Let's analyze the character development. Fluttershy is exactly what her name spells out, she's shy... and that's about it. Sure she's done a handful of things that supposedly "showed brave characteristics" but honestly, she only overlooked the danger because it was a animal in need of help. (I'm not saying helping animals is bad) On other occasions, Fluttershy does not speak up, she does not stand out, and she does not change.

Having a shy character is all fine and dandy but honestly, she needs developmental change. Let's use Applejack as a example for developmental change. There have been a few episodes where Applejack has lied and then come to par with her mistake, right? But take Fluttershy's episodes into hand. One episode she's learned to stand up and speak out and then the next one she's exactly the same again. Honestly, Fluttershy has not changed whatsoever because her character only revolves around being shy. Why can't she be shy and actually be a contributing member to the show's character cast? I mean seriously, this isn't opinion, this is factual information. I'm not saying she's bad because I don't like her colors, or her eyes or her ass-tattoo... I'm saying she's a poor character because she lacks in a very important thing:developmental change!

Alright, let's play another card. Applejack may not get much screentime (as mentioned earlier) but the screentime she does provide and teaches a much more valuable lesson for viewers (remember, this is a kids show so we have to incorporate the lessons for examples) What does Applejack do? She works. She shows viewers that sometimes in life you gotta saddle up and buckle down for the long haul to get shit done. You can't be a push-over, timid, & un-changeable to succeed, you have to stand up, speak your mind and tell the world you can do it.

What do I mean by all of that? Simple. Let's pretend Applejack and Fluttershy are applying for a job. (Not anything bias to either character) They are both applying for an assistant manager position for a chain of appliance sales locations.(Obviously they aren't ponies in this case, I just swapped their personas with humanization to make this example work)Since this is a chain, there is a higher-up authority that they have to sit down with and apply for the job with. They both fill out a application, list their current occupations along with talents/traits and work ethic (Which is all rather similar, just different environments they both grew up around).
So the top dog is looking over the two applications and he's like "Hmm... I'd have to have this ladies come in to talk with me before I make a final decision". He calls Fluttershy in first to convince him since the applications we very similar and both sounded as they could do the job. 
Fluttershy sits down in the office with the big, burly business man sitting in front of her with a intimidating smile on his face. "Go ahead and tell me why you want to be assistant manager here at Ralph's Appliance Center!" he says. Fluttershy looks up with a timid look on her face and says; "Umm I guess I'd like to work here. I mean if that's okay with you.." The business man asks a few more questions and ends up sending her out without a sure answer since her still hadn't spoken with Applejack yet. He attempts to shake Fluttershy's hand on the way out but she was really scarce and backed away before he could.

The man calls Applejack in later that day. She comes in, sits down right in front of the same big, burly man and says;"What can I do you for today, sir?" The man acted surprised at her confidence and willing to assert herself and began to ask her the same set of questions. "Alright, go ahead and tell me why you want to be assistant manager here at Ralph's Appliance Center!" The man said with the same intimidating smile on his face.
"Well, I'd be a mighty-fine worker here, I've got what it takes to stand up and get what needs to be done finished without any hiccups. Plus, I'd always be willing to go above and beyond my duties." Said Applejack.
The man looked at her, stood up and shook her hand. Applejack gave the man a nice, firm, "I want to work for you" handshake. Guess who got the job? It's not bias, it's all based on character development the show has given us.

What's my point? Simple. You wouldn't want to hire someone who isn't assertive and not able to show proper initiative to finish a job. What good would they be to you if you did? They'd be stuck in the same old rut and never step outside of their listed duties to do anything else. 
You are going to hire the guy (or girl) who walks in, looks you in the eye and says "What can I do for you?" Instead of saying "Yeah, ummm... if that's okay with you, I guess.." Life doesn't give handouts to those who don't stand up to make a change in who they are or at least try to better themselves. You gotta be the one out there sticking your foot in the door of opportunity, not hiding under the couch of cowardliness. 
Fluttershy does not change nor try to better her excessive "Shyness". She knows it's a problem or she wouldn't have had all of her friends try to get her to fix it. She lacks in initiative and developmental change which doesn't make her a poor character by opinion, it makes her a poor character by factual information. If she showed progression, she'd be much better and likable.

Think about it. Without a difference in potential, nothing would progress and it would be boring. How so? Take a movie. How good would a movie be if we met all the characters and they sat on a couch for 90 minutes? We'd much rather prefer a movie that shows developmental change and has a difference in potential... Otherwise it'd be boring, right? Apply that concept with Fluttershy. (Along with the other examples listed.)

The fucking end, bitches.

WE DO *NOT* GIVE PERMISSION FOR PICTURES TO BE POSTED OR SHARED ANYWHERE WITHOUT CONSENT. THESE ARE FOR DEVIANTART ONLY AND THE WATERMARK EXISTS FOR THAT REASON.

SHARED ACCOUNT: I photograph my girlfriend. We both upload the pics. I also do traditional and digital drawings.
NOTE: We do dress up and tease shots and are not into bondage. We mainly do a "theme" and shoot it. No BDSM or tied up stuff.

Also, we are both 19 years of age.

Self-Certified in nearly anything imaginable, I have yet to navigate a aircraft through mountains at a low altitude though. I plan to to do that at age 72 though.

Get your new truck during truck month starting in Trucktober extending through Truckvember.
You won't see a sale this big again until next Truckuary or Truarch.
Better act now.

I enjoy soda, lots and lots of soda, not diet soda though... that stuff is jacked up higher than a Chevrolet Silverado with a 10 inch lift kit.

It was nearly three years since the falling... Three years that completely wiped the minds of those who survived. Why forget of such a happening? You'd think those left behind would realize what had happened to it's full extent... But they didn't... They were told to forget. They were told to let everything they once knew parish into little crumbs which were then swept away in the vast corners of their restrained minds.

This society was one that fell in line like a mile-long freight train near a seaside loading dock. They were a group of individuals that were only as individual as the population count they were apart of... Nothing more than a stock number if you ask me.

Well, lets get down to it. Let me tell you all about a society that goes by the name of "Windermere". Windermere was a rather civil group, nobody cause too much trouble for the most part... I mean, how could they? They are merely nothing to the higher-up "government" they supposedly had. The political leaders (Who refereed to themselves as "Blowhards") were ones that represented nothing but control and... well... anything for their benefit. A citizen had a car? Fuck no. The Blowhards will take it and basically shove it up the said citizen's ass, drive it a few times and sell it for stock money which they will invest towards vast supplies of toaster strudels. So basically, the Blowhards were fucknuggets (Which you probably could have guessed due to how the story began) but somehow, they were the ones in charge.

Remember how I said there was a "falling"?? What? You don't... How the fuck do you not remember how the fucking story started you incompetent douche-nozzle?! Oh well... I'll still tell you... Even though you seem dense.
Well, there was what the Windermeres refer to as the "falling" and it did happen exactly three years ago. The falling is well... How the fuck do I explain this... The falling was when the Blowhards bought this really big slice of land outside of Windermereton (Their city) and basically used it to build a really big statue of their leader... All fine and dandy I guess... except for the fact the statue contained billions upon billions of of rubber bands. 
Why is this a problem? Well simple. Let me tell you.

The citizens of Windermereton got rather pissed off the Blowhards built this statue saluting some old knucklefuck that basically did nothing but suck every poodulldropplet (The Windermere's form of currency) out of their already poor pockets. I mean, who wouldn't? I sure would if I were in their position as well.
Anyways, the Windermeretons got really fucking mad and basically started rioting the statue after it was built. Many of them attempted to hit the statue repetitively with a stick while others attempted to blow it up with C4. Well, a mix between the two ideas struck and well... The dumbass statue blew up. 

I know, I know... You are thinking "Oh, it's just a statue filled with rubber bands, what's the big deal...?" Well sadly, there are two "big deals" when it comes to a explosding statue packed to the brim with rubber bands near Windermereton. 

First problem: Rubber bands are a extreme delicacy in Windermereton. I mean nobody has no more but one or two.... and they cost a fuckload of poodulldropplets to get a hold of. Kellivan Dercir (The top-dog Blowhard) attempted to suck all of the rubber bands out of the citizens and keep them for his own. Now you can see why Kellivan would be rather upset with his statue exploding into millions of pieces.

Second problem: Well, this one is a little harder to explain... I probably should have mentioned this to begin with... but I didn't. Well...... The citizens of Windermereton are... well... they are oscillating floor fans... You know, like the ones you buy at Target or BIG LAWTS...
So why would rubber bands from the destroyed statue blown up with C4 and a bunch of angry oscillating fan people beating it with a stick end up in some utter demise? Easy. Since the citizens of the city are oscillating fan people, when a fuckload of rubber bands fall from the sky there is a huge problem.
Why? Well.... Rubber bands that fall from the sky above all the citizens in the town and the citizens that happened to be around the rubble of Kellivan's statue will get the very same rubber bands stuck around their rotating fan blades (Which if the blades stop rotating, the Windermere will die.)

So yeah. The ever-so-rare rubber bands falling from the sky getting stuck in the blades of the Windermeres all over town... not to mention the statue of Kellivan which is now destroyed... Not a good way to start out the week, eh?
Now I bet you can imagine why the Blowhards were rather displeased... Right? Their precious leader's statue (Which they erected for him to contain all the rubber bands he stole from the citizens) now destroyed by the very same citizens they are attempting to keep in check. How does this make the Blowhards look to Kellivan? Pretty fuckin' bade, mate. Pretty fuckin' bad.

So now the Blowhards are looking over the aftermath of what the angry Windermere citizens have done. Many citizens are dead from the rubberbands falling into the rotating blades (the very same blades that kept them alive) which caused them to stop and much else (Including the town) completely destroyed from the falling statue rubble. 
What to do? What to do... The Blowhards called a meeting quick before Kellivan ever called their head guy in to talk to them. They had to create a solution for the citizen's outburst before Kellivan ended up firing them or taking away their precious poodulldropplet paycheck.

The Blowhards devised a plan. A plan to throw each and every citizen of Windermereton that wasn't one of them into check. A plan to keep everyone within a flip of a simple switch.
Since each and every Windermere needed portable battery supply (which they used to keep their blades spinning) the Blowhards knew each and everyone needed to recharge their battery pack via the city's power supply. What would happen next? Simple. The Blowhards would make it seem like the statue incident was a mere mishap and that they wanted to give something to the citizens to show how "grateful" they are by giving each citizen a new batter pack and ordering a recall for the old ones since they would no longer charge due to the city's change in power (which was all a gimmick to get everyone to give up their power supply)
After doing so, the new batteries given to the citizens would be implanted with a control chip which controlled each and everyone's fan speed, oscillation function, and all their thoughts.

All and all, they pitched this idea to Kellivan who loved every inch of the plan and even upped the Blowhard's pay by 23,800 poodulldropplets. Talk about a giant dick in the ass of the Windermereton citizens... And they didn't even know it. The Blowhards called their plan "The Falling" which went into play as soon as they had the batteries implanted with the chips and shipped out to each citizen's home where they sent back the old battery to the Blowhards. Talk about a plan... 

Remember how I mentioned population in the very beginning? This is where this number came into play. The Blowhards created a massive collection of screens which monitored each and every citizen. They could do nearly anything they wanted from this board... Anything from make a citizen work a certain job to killing one off. It was simple, efficient and profitable. Each and every citizen by getting one of these new batteries was now owned by the Blowhards...

So what now? The utter demise of a group of citizens has taken place... Nothing can be done... Nothing at all, right? Well.... Not exactly. It had been a few weeks after the Blowhards distributed the new batteries out and got the number of how many citizens were in the city working for them. Everyone was accounted for.... Except one fan.

This is the story of a old fan by the name of Dal Fervitz. Dal lived near the very edge of town... that far edge nobody ever went near or hardly knew of. He lived in the back of a old utility trailer where he made a living building clock-radios out of wood. He was a talented fan, one nobody really knew but they loved his product. He lived and kept to himself... he barely knew about the outside world other than when the postal fan would come by and pick up his stock of clock-radios. Well, one day... the postal fan never came again... (We all know why, but Dal didn't due to his shelter form the outside world...)

Dal wondered why the postal fan never came again so despite his fear and the unknown... he left the utility trailer. 

And that's where I leave off for now... See ya for round two later.

yeessh sorry for the douches. General logic would be if they don't like what you have to offer, would be to just keep scrolling down the page.
