Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

So, over the last couple days I've had a lot of things going on.  I graduated from college, spent the night with my best friend, watched the latest Hayao Miazaki film, The Wind Rises, which was very good I might add, and then I came home.  Everything was fine until around 2:00 AM this morning.  I was woken up by the sound of my car's alarm, so I scrambled through my room until I found the car keys to shut it up, which I did and went back to bed.  When I got up, my dad told me that someone had ripped off the tape holding up the driver's side door window and that it was wide open.  So someone broke into my car.  The good news is nothing was stolen from it, but I'm still a little shaken up from that.

Anyway, that's all I wanted to share.

You know I'm ticked when something like this happens.  Here's the scenario, you go to a place for several years to either blow off some steam, get away from your troubles, or just plain visit friends and have a good time.  Well, I'm pissed to the highest degree right now because one such place I loved going just closed without warning.  That place being Starlight Bowling Alley in my home town on Stardust Ave.  It seems to be a trend that my favorite places in that area have been disappearing one by one.  First it was the local Video Maniacs, which was a rental store that existed before Netflix, but ever since Netflix became a thing, it started to struggle in business and as such it's understandable that it would inevitably close.  Next was the pool hall known as Keystone Cue and Cushion, and the whole complex it belonged to.  It closed for a while, reopened, and then closed again.  Then a few years after that, the building was demolished.

What got me the most pissed off about Starlight's closing is that they were only notified ONE DAY before it actually happened.  WHAT KIND OF SENSE DOES THAT MAKE?!!!  Look, I'm sorry government, but that's just BULLSHIT!!  Companies that are going to be shut down should at least have two weeks notice before being shut down, rather than one day.  That just isn't fair, to either the customers or the employees.

So, if there are any government officials, tax offices, or other company associated with shutting down businesses, DON'T GIVE THEM NOTICE ONLY ONE DAY BEFORE YOU ACTUALLY DO IT!!  I would have been fine with them closing if I had had time to adjust to it before it happened to give it a proper good-bye, BUT NOT OUT OF THE BLUE LIKE THAT!!

I feel about this the same way I feel about an unexpected death of a friend or a family member.  First, it was completely unexpected and I didn't give them a proper send off.  Seconds, I would be, and am, in shock about it happening which would last far longer than if I knew it was coming.

You see what I'm saying here?
I wouldn't be so hurt if I knew it was going to be closing, and if that were the case I would have given it the send-off that it deserved.  For one, I would enjoy playing a few more games on those lanes, or in the arcade one last time before saying farewell to the place for good.  I would have been perfectly fine with that.

But like I said, the people at the alley didn't even know this was going to happen until ONE DAY PRIOR!!

So yea, I'M VERY TICKED!!  There was no reason for the bowling alley to close.  It was still successful, there were still people enjoying the time they spend there.  It had a family friendly atmosphere, and it had recently been remodeled.  Granted, I didn't like how the remodel was handled, but it's nothing to complain about either.

I'm going to join the group that are calling themselves "Save Starlight" because I don't want it gone, and I strongly feel it was closed for unfair reasons without being notified as such two weeks beforehand.

If it was a health code violation, then I would have been perfectly fine with that, but no.  The news broadcast I say mentioned nothing about why it was closed.

Yep.  I have finally finished the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini.

I really don't want to spoil much, but I will say that it was a great read.  It was slow in some parts making it difficult to read, and other times where it was so intense I couldn't put it down.  That doesn't make the book any less enjoyable though.

If you haven't read the Inheritance Cycle starting from the beginning, and you love fantasy novels, then I highly recommend it.  However, it is NOT meant for children.  It is marketed towards young adults.

To think, my buddy KM got the book for me as a Christmas present almost three years ago, and it's only taken me till now to finish it.  That is likely because I found a lot of other things to keep me occupied, things came up, I've been busy with other projects and other such stuff like that.

However, I'm glad I finally found the time to finish it, and it was because I decided to check out the audio book from the library.  (Although first I decided to look it up on YouTube and listen to it for free, but every time I did, it kept getting taken off just a few weeks later.)

Anyway, that's all I have to say.  I love the characters, the story, the conclusion, and everything in between, and I might check out the audio books of the other books and start from the beginning again just to re-live it, as it has been a while since I last read them.

Anyway, thank you for reading and have a nice day.

Tapper the Pony by trainman666
Tapper the Pony
NAME:  Tapper
AGE:  40
GENDER:  Male
OCCUPATION:  Professional tap-dancer


Tapper comes from a family of dancers who encouraged him to follow in their footsteps.  He didn't have to, but he chose to because he loved to dance anyway.  He took many years in the art of dance through his high school years, and has even performed with some big-name bands and celebrities, including Sapphire Shores on a few occasions.

He got his start doing small-time shows at various events ranging from birthday parties, to grand opening parties, and even full-fledged carnival gigs.  He's not the only dancing pony, he's just the leader of a small group who get together for all kinds of things.

While he prefers to dance alone, he has had many partners over the years, and he's also had smaller performances on larger shows.  He's opened for Glitter's puppet shows on a few occasions, and he's also danced alongside Sonata and his band.   His favorite gigs are when he's alongside people he's known for a long time, rather than a complete stranger.  He doesn't like to screw up in front of someone he doesn't know as he does have a minor inferiority complex, so he feels more comfortable around people he knows rather than total strangers.

On his downtime, Tapper can be seen teaching some younger students about his technique as well as some tips for those interested in joining.

Tapper's life hasn't all been dancing and smiles though.  His younger brother passed away due to a heart attack and though Tapper tried to save him, there was nothing he could do because he lacked medical knowledge.  His father was a very tough-love kind of person, and he was very strict with the rules such has letting Tapper only watch so much TV, practice his tap-dancing at certain times of day only, and other stuff like that.  He had a kind heart deep down, don't get me wrong, but Tapper had trouble with the limitations upon him.

In addition to knowing Glitter while she performed with her puppets, Tapper was also a good friend of Darkhoove.  He didn't live in the same neighborhood, but Darkhoove was just a short walk away from where Tapper lived.

Other skills Tapper has is singing.  He often has the chance to get up and sing alongside other acts, and he's got a really beautiful singing voice that even rivals Rarity.

Greetings viewers. My name is Daryl E. Doan, but you may call me Train for short.
I am 25 years old and I have a dream to become a railroad engineer and travel the world on the rails.

You've only got one life, so live it to the fullest. Don't waste my time with llama emoticons, because you're only wasting your own time as well.

Please keep in mind that I have rules for visiting my channel and leaving comments.

1: I do not appreciate comments that contain profanity. I have no problem with it in general, but this is not the place for it. Please DO NOT leave comments that are rude, contain profanity, or even links to a naughty website. Comments containing those will be blocked instantly, and the user responsible will be blocked without warning.

2: Harassment of any kind, including spamming llama emoticons is not allowed here. Any user caught doing that will get one warning, and if it continues after that, the user will be reported to the authorities, and blocked from my channel. Also, please no comments of greeting in the comments section. I find those annoying, and I'd rather keep it clean, or at the very least have commission, RP, or other important tips there. Greetings are perfectly fine in the notes though.

3. I like all kinds of different styles or art, but I mostly thrive in stories and writing. I make a lot of custom character based on things I see, hear, or read. (Example, my character Smolder was inspired by a dragon statue I bought in Sacramento, CA). Please do not leave rude comments about my character because I cheat and use a Dragon Maker or character dress-up. I don't consider the character's look the art, but more of the bio I make up for them.

4. A three strikes rule will be implemented if a user is making me uncomfortable in various situations, minus the ones listed above. These circumstances can range for making me feel uncomfortable in RPs, asking really stupid questions with the answer right in front of them, or other situations I will consider minor. Three strikes, and the user is blocked for good.

4. I do not like llama badges, nor the llama emoticon, so I highly request that they not be given to me, or left in the comments. I feel they are a complete waste of time, and an insult to an artist like myself. I strongly prefer comments, as they means a lot more to me.
If you must give me a freaking llama, much as it pains me to say it, then fine. But DO NOT SHOVE IT IT IN MY FACE WITH THE FREAKING LLAMA EMOTICON!!

5. Trolls and bullies are NOT TOLERATED here, and anyone caught doing so will be blocked with only ONE warning. I don't mind being teased if I can have a laugh out of it too, but if I don't laugh or find it funny, then I will count it as trolling just of the sake of trolling and you WILL be blocked.

I also like to RP too, and I often include vore in said RPs.
I have rules for this as well.

1. I like to lead when it comes to the RPs, so if you have something you want to happen in the RP, or you have characters you want in it, please discuss it in notes with me first. That is the ONLY time, I will allow RP related material to be sent to me through notes. In the notes, you can tell me your character's origin, backstory, age, skills, powers, hobbies, adventures, accomplishments, interests, etc. Don't worry about the dialogue, we'll determine that in the actual RP. I reserve the right to refuse any RP request at any time, especially if we fail to come to a compromise. I like doing something we can both agree on so that we can maximize the fun between parties.

2. Vore often comes up a lot when I RP with someone who happens to like it, and that's just fine with me. I like it when the predator keeps the victim save in his/her belly, or if it's done to allow them a nice place to sleep. Sometimes I will allow digestion if the victim is able to reform afterwards, and VERY RARELY will I allow the character to be digested and never return.

3. There is no limit to the number of characters you can play at one time in the RPs, so if you have a lot of characters, or if you want to RP as one of my many characters, feel free, but I urge you to read up on the bios of said characters before RPing as them. (if the character you want doesn't seem to have much of a bio, then feel free to wing it.

4. When I'm RPing, there will be a three-user limit, as anymore than that will make it a bit too confusing when I go to read it later. As many comments will seem to be out of place, and tough to find.

5. Have fun. This RP is as much mine as it is yours, so if you have something you want to happen in the RP, but I don't seen to be taking it in the direction you want, just let me know in any method you want and tell me the direction you want.

6. I will ONLY RP through journals, as I don't like keeping these fun RPs to myself, and I feel everyone should see the antics I have with my friends, while playing as these characters.

7. Most importantly. You do not have to have perfect grammar when RPing with me. It is appreciated and recommend that you have someone other than me look over it before you post it and make appropriate changes, but it's not necessary. As long as I can figure what you're trying to say, I have no problem with it. I WILL NOT tolerate foul language of any kind, any text that implies sexual innuendos, or links that take me to anything but the character in question you are RPing as.

8. When more than two people are RPing, please try not to get too far ahead of the others.

That's all the rules for RPs, but there's still one last thing to go over.

The rules for RPs also carry over into the vore story commissions.
As previously stated, I like to write stories. Often times it will be a vore story, but I will branch out if needed.
I do not usually charge for commissions or stories, so if you want me to write one for you, then let me know in a note, and I will do what I can.
Just like RPs, I WILL NOT allow NUDITY, SEXUAL INNUENDOS, UNBIRTH, OR GORE!! Vore is perfectly fine, as well as digestion (within reason), but it has to be through the MOUTH ONLY!!! The circumstances can be anything you want. Whether the predator is swallowing the victim to prevent further injury, giving the victim a warm place to sleep in its belly, or as part of a game.

If you do not wish to send me a note explaining what you want in the commission, you do not have to. It's just my preferred way of relaying such information.

My only price of commissions is that you tell me who your characters are, what they ill be doing, where they will be, why they are there, and when the event takes place. Though I can just work around having just the characters' name and the location and events.
However, please be advised that I may not get to it for a while after the request is made. I may have other projects going at the time, but I will still keep the note you send me for consideration.
I reserve the right to turn down any request/commission at any time, and I would strongly prefer to do something that both the commissioner and I can agree on, so that we can avoid fighting about it later. I want us both to be satisfied with the end product.

Also, I reserve the right to cancel any project request at any time. These reasons may include that the scenario was just too weird, the requestee is either making me uncomfortable, or I just don't feel I could do a good job with the request.

That is all. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask me in either the comments below, or a note.

Sorry if I sound rude here, but I really don't like comments of greeting and nothing else on my main page.  If you have something you wish to discuss with me, then by all means please tell me, or let me know in a note.

Thank you, and good day.

No. I meant it would be funny to see a dragon and human playing "Reign of Fire". Instead of all those violent wars, just have the leaders play against each other.

I really don't know.  I'm not huge on the "Dragons are evil and must be destroyed." angle.  This is why I like How to Train Your Dragon and the Spyro series.

OK. So, basically dragons come and take over the world in September 2084. They eat/burn everything alive in sight. About 25 years later, there are VERY few humans left. A group of American Marines travel to London where another group is and they team up and kill the only male dragon. The videogame you can play as either a dragon or human. Multiplayer you play as human vs. human or dragon vs. human.

I keep telling this to anyone who is interested.  Please note me so we can brainstorm if you wish to RP.  That way we'll have an idea of where we want to go.  I'm not good at coming up with off-the-cuff responses.
