I'm contemplating making a roleplay journal for Sans the Skeleton from Undertale.

Pros: He's an interesting and well developed character. He shares my love of godawful puns. I could deal with some common fanons about him that I personally disagree with.

Cons: He clearly suffers from depression, and I deal with that enough in real life without wanting to revisit it in fiction. I'd have to decide which timeline he's coming in from and that would be a pain in the ass.

As one might expect, I have Thoughts about it. Most of them are fairly trivial, but there's a big issue that's bothering me.

I’m thinking I want to write an essay about the metanarrative of Undertale and how it shows off the way stories are told in games as opposed to other, strictly linear forms of media. Possibly it will involve comparing and contrasting Undertale with The Stanley Parable. If anyone can think of other games that play with narrative that way, I’m open to suggestions.

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

My seven questions, from [personal profile] minkhollow:

1) What pulled you into My Little Pony? )
2) Anything you're looking forward to doing after the Milliways move? )
3) What's your dream job? )
4) If you could live anywhere you wanted, where would it be? Why? )
5) Unpopular Fandom Opinion from the fandom of your choice? )
6) All-time favorite movie? Why? )
7) If given the choice, are you a pets-having kind of person? Why or why not? )

This installment of Thinking Too Much is about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. But only in part. More generally, I want to talk about certain challenges unique to serial fiction, particularly in the Internet age.

As before, opinions expressed herein are my own, and I don't claim to be an expert on anything spoken about below. If you disagree with anything I've written, or just want to discuss it further, feel free to comment and put your two cents in.

Cut for length, multimedia, and minor MLP spoilers )

On Friday, the parental units and I went to see The Muppets. I'm not going to post a real review of the film; I'll leave that in more capable hands. Instead, the following is the first part of a (hopefully) ongoing series called Thinking Too Much, in which I take a piece of popular culture and give it far more analysis and consideration than it really deserves. I can't guarantee that what I write will always make sense, but I will endeavor to at least make it entertaining.

A quick caveat before we start: While I'm a fan of the Muppets and Jim Henson's work in general, I'm far from an expert on either one. Feel free to make corrections or clarifications in the comments.

Spoilers for the new Muppet movie ahead. Read at your own risk. )

Which My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic pony are you?

While you tend to be a bit of a "delicate flower", you have inner strength just waiting to blossom. First of all though, you need to build up your confidence- because you can be far too insecure with yourself. But there are many positive elements to your sensitive side too; for starters, you're a real sweetheart! Without fail you'll do your best to look after a friend in need and care for them with all the love you have, and with your softness, gentle nurturing and peace-making ways you can help relax anyone in a crisis. Some would say you're as sweet as honey!
