No comment.

No.


Miss Friendship wrote:Favorite color?
Dark Blue. Followed by Silver, Gray, and Black.
Miss Friendship wrote:Where would you go if you could go anywhere in the world?
Essentially nowhere. I have my own favorite places, and don't care for travel much.
Miss Friendship wrote:Favorite fruit?
Apples and grapes.


Helios wrote:Why did you spell guaranteed wrong?
In order to get someone to ask that question. It now having been asked, I will return the word to its proper spelling.


Emma wrote:What is your favorite TV show?
It is hard to choose, Ducktales, Rescue Rangers, Inspector Gadget, How to Train Your Dragon, Doctor Who, and possibly even Dan VS all deserve a mention. Probably Gravity Falls as well, as I am looking into this show and enjoying what I have seen so far.
I would say the TV show I am most enjoying right now is My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

How long have you enjoyed MLP? Did someone introduce you to it, or did you find it on your own? (there's probably some horror story involving PF ;) )

I guess it's been a few years now. It was a gradual process.
Helios wrote:Did someone introduce you to it, or did you find it on your own?
It was a gradual process. I just kept comming across it, and underseasie and others liked it, so I gradually began to check it out. And to my shock it broke every cliche that every TV show I had ever watched had used. I was drawn in. And then finally, this happened.

Helios wrote:What other TV shows have you watched that have these cliches of which you speak?
I would quote Ducktales as the central case. From it and the others I learned that popular one-episode characters never reappear, that everything does not necessarily make sense or line up, that animation can be really great and enjoyable-but never of the highest quality, anything that is patently obvious to us the characters are likely to be utterly unaware of, that something that is going to move unexpectedly will be the same style as the characters rather than the background*, that all tough characters are always voiced by Will Ryan, that characters motivations and personalities need not be completely consistent, and so on. All of these things irked me immensely, but eventually, after enough time, I began to accept these as the necessary, unavoidable, and universal evils of animated cartoons.
And then MLP:FiM blew all of this out of the water.
Helios wrote:Do you enjoy "kiddie" TV shows more than "adult" ones?
Probably. The kids ones probably focus on fun, while the adult ones have other concerns. At any rate, I would seem to mostly watch kids ones.
I would not say that I inherently enjoy "kids shows" rather than "adult" ones. I almost always base everything on a case by case basis.
* Y'all know exactly what I mean, right? That brighter, sharper-outlined, different look that the characters had from the rest of the world.

MLP DOES have gorgeous animation. And the ponies are adooorable.

Have you watched the Adventures of Merlin?

Paula wrote:What's your input on the movie, "Inside Out"?
It is one of my favorite movies of all time, and it might be PIXAR's best. It is impossible to choose of course, but if forced to choose, I might have rated Ratatouille as the best up until now. It does humans so well, the emotions could have very easily been one-dimensional emotions, but instead are very three-dimensional characters. And the main theme: Sadness. Now this is something I am very big on, the beauty and value of sadness, and I, of all people, should have seen it coming or shouted in the theater "No! Sadness is..." during the beginning, and I still totally agreed with Joy and was swept along with the "I don't know what sadness is for." concept. And then I was swept along with the learning journey. That is such an important theme, that sadness is natural, healthy, and a part of life.
I have seen this movie three times in theaters. After the first time I was worried it wouldn't be as enjoyable or funny the successive times, that it was a bit to much of a gag film or such, but instead I cried more each time I watched it.
Paula wrote:When was the last time that you watched Nemo?
A fair while ago I suppose. I have seen it many times.
Paula wrote:If you could meet any celebrity, who would s/he be?
Well, I suppose David Crowder.
Paula wrote:Why do you think people like MLP?
Various reasons, it pretty much varies from individual to individual. It is enjoyed for the storylines and characters, for the originality, for the rich world, animation fans watch it for the stellar animation, some likely watch it to be different and counter-cultural... I think it is basically because of the originality and the quality. It all boils down into Simple and Clean.

How long have you been saved? (Personally coming to know Jesus, even if you've been in church all of your life.)

Who is/are your best friends here, in the years you've been a member?

Can you believe we've been friends for 3 years?

What are some magic tricks you've learned recently?

What are you looking forward to most about college? What are you nervous about?

If you could spend an entire day with someone from SS, who would it be and why?

If you could spend an entire day with a historical figure, who would it be and why?

Have you heard the new Toby Mac album? A DC Talk reunion! =D

Have you seen any of the latest Kingdom Hearts news? What do you think is going to happen? I need A. Kairi to become a playable character. B. More SoKai in canon. C. Roxas and Naminé to become their own somebodies. And D. Xion to exist and be saved. Plus everyone else who needs saving.

Have you seen the newest KHIII trailer?

Last movie you watched?

Would you be willing to lie to a court for a close friend if it meant saving them from going to jail for life?

Do you think children should be sheltered from unhappiness?
