Or, Matt, you could go to Alaska. I know others want the Doctor in their home town/state/contry, but hey, ALASKA, the frozen north, the last fronteer, where moose and bears walk through the city (not joking, I have several stories) and the best fish are caught. Think about it BBC, give me a call, eh?
Hello, This is Alaskan Brony with the latest news reports…
Welp, I’ve done it. I’ve auditioned for two different ponies on Newsponies, a radio play that I am REALY looking forward to. It’s written by the same guy as the Vinyl Scratch Tapes, and it’s more about the news side of the radio and other brodcasting. Oh and theres Mare-do-well as Batman, and a changeling named Halfway as Two Face in a side story. Which is AWSOME.
Anyway, the point of this is to say I’M STARTING VOICE ACTING!
I’ve been an actor for a while, but I have never been much into voice acting. This fandom changed that for me. I got a Blue Snowball just for this role in Newsponies, and for other voice acting things I may make on a currently-unexisting YouTube.
Oh, right, the roles. Well I auditioned for Traffic Cam, a snarky, annoying pony who does the traffic reports in the air. Oh, and he’s an earth pony. So he has a helicopter. And, according to him, be barely knows how to fly it. Also, according to a picture by RobotButterfly (she is amazing, let me tell you what) he has red hair and freckles… I’m part Irish and have always loved the Irish/Scottish accent. So, I used my accent, and tried for the part. He cannot be any other voice in my opinion. Just saying.
The other is Live Anchor, a weather reporter who used to be the, well, live anchor, but he got demoted and replaced by Sunny Weather and took her old job. He is now insane and very desperate to get his job back. His part was too fun not to try.
I had some ideas for some other roles, but I liked those two the best. I might record the audition lines for all the other male parts and release them here (watch as I get noted by someone in newsponies that they didn’t like either of my auditioned parts and wished I had sent in one of the others…) Any whom, yea, that’s what I did. We’ll see what happenes. If this works out, who knows, I might put Alaska on the brony map after all.
Anonymous asked: Hey guy I'm from wasilla and I really think its cool that someone is trying to get the bronies of alaska together. I hope you get this or that you see this, or if you are still active.
WOHA! Well, my followers totaling in none (though I haven’t done anything to change that) it seems I actualy receved a question. When was this asked…? Good lord, about three months ago! Sorry about the, um, late response, but I have several things to say in this post.
First, why I have been gone. I would say I was on hiatus, but honestly, I just forgot about this little thing. ((good heavens, the colors are ugly, I will have to fix that)) I made this blog, intended to use it for some ideas or to rant a little or something, and then I completely forgot I opened the ask function for a reason. Or that I could post things, and should. I’m not a social networking person, I follow blogs I like, and that’s that. However, that will soon change.
When I made this blog, I was just doing it to follow pony blogs like Discord Whooves, Ask Surprise, and others. I chose the name alaskanbrony because I was an alaskan, and we are the least known state in bronydom. I just wanted to let people know, hey, we exist, we are here. I never intended to gather alaskans, as you suggest Anon. However, things change…
Well, not dramaticaly. I will use this blog more, and I am hoping to do some voice acting, so perhaps I could use this to share what I make. However, this blog was never intended to gather us AK bronies, rather it was for my personal use. But you have inspired me Mr. Anon from Wasilla, and while I wont organise meetups, I will do this:
If you are also alaskan, and you are a brony, follow this blog. Let me know you are here, and I follow you in return. If I get some followers, then perhaps, PERHAPS, this will become more like a hub for Alaskan Bronies to organize meet ups, or just talk about the show we love. Until then though, this stays personal, though I will be doing much more with it. I will probably open a youtube account and do some voice acting, or song covers/parodies, or regular acting, who knows. If I do, I’ll also put the videos here, and see if I can do something with this here blog.
So thank you, Wasilla Anon, for reminding me I made this blog, and that I can do something with it other than follow people.
SADDEST STORY I HAVE EVER HEARD
I was walking around in a Target store, when I saw a cashier hand this little boy some money back. The boy couldn’t have been more than 5 or 6 years old. The cashier said, “I’m sorry, but you don’t have enough money to buy this doll.” Then the little boy turned to the old woman next to him: ”Granny, are you sure I don’t have enough money?” The old lady replied: ”You know that you don’t have enough money to buy this doll, my dear.” Then she asked him to stay there for just 5 minutes while she went to look a round. She left quickly. The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand. Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to. “It’s the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much for Christmas. She was sure that Santa Claus would bring it to her.” I replied to him that maybe Santa Claus would bring it to her afterall, and not to worry. But he replied to me sadly. “No, Santa Claus can’t bring it to her where she is now. I have to give the doll to my mommy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there.” His eyes were so sad while saying this. “My sister has gone to be with God. Daddy says that Mommy is going to see God very soon too, so I thought that she could take the doll with her to give it to my sister.” My heart nearly stopped. The little boy looked up at me and said: “I told daddy to tell mommy not to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall.” Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He then told me “I want mommy to take my picture with her so she won’t forget me. I love my mommy and I wish she doesn’t have to leave me, but daddy says that she has to go to be with my little sister.” Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly. I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. “Suppose we check again, just in case you do have enough money for the doll?” “OK,” he said, “I hope I do have enough.” I added some of my money to his without him seeing and we started to count it. There was enough for the doll and even some spare money. The little boy said: “Thank you God for giving me enough money!” Then he looked at me and added, “I asked last night before I went to sleep for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mommy could give it to my sister. He heard me!” “I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mommy, but I didn’t dare to ask God for too much. But He gave me enough to buy the doll and a white rose.” “My mommy loves white roses.” A few minutes later, the old lady returned and I left with my basket. I finished my shopping in a totally different state from when I started. I couldn’t get the little boy out of my mind. Then I remembered a local newspaper article two days ago, which mentioned a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied by a young woman and a little girl. The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the life-sustaining machine, because the young woman would not be able to recover from the coma. Was this the family of the little boy? Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the newspaper that the young woman had passed away. I couldn’t stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went to the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wishes before her burial. She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest. I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling that my life had been changed forever.. The love that the little boy had for his mother and his sister is still, to this day, hard to imagine. And in a fraction of a second, a drunk driver had taken all this away from him. Now you have 2 choices: 1) Reblog this message. 2) Ignore it as if it never touched your heart
Once Upon Equestria: Plot Elements
There are particular elements of the story that should be discussed a bit before getting into which medium this story could come in.
Made by Discord, cast by Trixie, this is the curse that sent Equestria to Earth and condensed it down to one city/town of humanized ponies. It makes sure that elements of their old life translate over (ie. the Cakes still run a bakery together), but makes their life slightly torturous (ie. the Cakes are now struggling to stay in business and they can barely care for the kids). It also has set the town in a variation of time lock, keeping the town hidden and imposable to escape. To break the curse, the town must remember who they are, (that does not necessarily mean they accept they were once equines) and the mane six must also become friends like they were before and wield the Elements of Harmony again to correct the damage done.
The Book is a compilation of Equestrian history, including legends, events, and the lives of every single pony living in Equestria. The book is magical, and while it contains more inside it than the entirety of the Canterlot Archives, it weighs no more than a good sized novel, and it shows only what the reader needs to know. When the curse hit, The Book was sent along too, loosing the magic that filled it’s pages. However, before The Book lost of all of it’s magic, it changed to show what the wielders of the Elements of Harmony would need to know in order to break the curse.
Once Upon Equestria: Charicters
This shall be about the main characters I want to use, a synopsis on their character and, if applicable, who from Once Upon a Time they are most like. So, without further ado, the characters:
The Great and Powerful Trixie:
A burning resentment towards Twilight Sparkle and her friends lingers in her heart, after she was humiliated by them and laughed out of Ponyville. She was able to continue being a stage act, but now ponies know the truth of her tricks and boasts. No longer is she seen as Great and Powerful, rather a fun act, but an average at best unicorn. Discord was able to whisper in her ear, promising her something she has been wishing for since she was sent from Ponyville: A chance not only to break Twilight Sparkle and her friends, but to have everyone, even the Royal Sisters, call her Great and Powerful again. She agreed to Discord’s deal, and cursed all of Equestria with a curse that sends all the ponies to a land of hatred, greed, and most importantly: NO MAGIC
She will play the basic role of Regena, even being mayor of this new city. She does have her own differences though: referring to herself in the third person and being even more brash and arrogant than Regena. You thought Regena flaunted her powers? Trixie practically has everyone kissing her feet when she enters a room.
After being imprisoned by the Elements of Harmony yet again, Discord noticed something. While he was unable to affect the physical world, the angrier or depressed somepony is, the more likely he is able to affect their thoughts. He cany cotrol anypny directly, but he can utter whispers, temptations. He started to scheme and came up with a plan. He was tired of being defeated by magic time and time again, so he developed a curse: a curse that would send all of Equestria to a land full of emotional chaos, and most importantly: NO MAGIC. However, he has more planned than just tormenting the populous of Equestria. No, he has a much larger plan in mind…
He will play the basic Rumpelstiltskin role, while still having plenty of good old funny Discord. He will be more of a jokester on earth than Mr. Gold, and more of a puppeteer in Equestria than he was before. Basically, a good blend between Rumple and regular Discord.
She has been having these strange dreams recently, dreams about her being a pony and running around this place called Ponyville with her ‘friends.’ This was just a dream though, she had leaned before that friends are useless and only bring you pain. Books don’t ask you how their cover looks while not caring about your personal feelings, books don’t go off and have a jolly old time at some party, never thinking of asking if you would like to go too, and leaving you crying in your room for hours because they don’t really care… No, learning and doing her best in her classes is what matters. Friendship is worthless, knowledge has true value.
So yea, she has become her old reclusive self again, but this time it’s worse. The curse adds a painful element to your existence, more so if Trixie does not like you. So Twilight has (fake) memories of being hurt by ‘friends’ in the past, which keep her from trying to make new ones.
The rest of the mane six:
Look, I know what I want to do with the rest of the mane six, but I don’t want to go too far into their new characteristics yet. However, they have all been separated from each other and either don’t know each other or hate their guts, depending on who it is. However, with the exception of Twilight, they are still connected to their respective element of harmony, just in an…interesting way.
The Doctor (Yes, he’s here too):
Because he was so far from Equestria when the spell hit him, he was only hit with less than half the force he was supposed to. Discord knew about the Doctor and that he would be a major thorn in his plan if not taken care of. However, the Doctor was too connected to Equestria now to just be sent home without any consequences. So, Discord crafted the idea of a visual representation of the Doctor, a television program. So, Doctor Who would stand in for the real Doctor, as he was sent back home and the show follows his past adventures. However, the curse was spread too thin, and did not send him home. It wiped his pony memory and turned him human, as it was supposed to, but he was sent to another planet in the same dimension as the others. The Doctor knew there was a gap in his memory, a large one, and he did not like it. It drove him on a personal quest to remember what happened. All that he can remember form this gap was a name. Well, two but he knew they were for the same person: Ditzy Doo or Derpy.
The show continues to run (so thank Discord for Doctor Who) and the TARDIS is unable to enter the town, or even know of it’s existence. However, once the time lock is weakened, the TARDIS takes notice, and see’s the trouble the people are in. When people are in trouble, the TARDIS schedules an appointment with the Doctor. And the Doctor is in.
Ditzy “Derpy” Doo:
She was not the smartest of all ponies, and now she is an even dimmer human . Or, so it seems (no, she does not know her true self). She is plenty smart, just sees the world in another way than everybody else. Two ways, actually. Still, her…special eyes, blonde hair, and name don’t help protect her from the bullies. Yet, even through the pain, she tries to smile and make others happy. Unfortunately, she is lonely at times, and is forced to entertain herself with Doctor Who. Most people are confused by what the Doctor says, but somehow she understands, mostly. His logic makes sense to her, and it makes her happy, because everyone respects him, even loves him, because he sees what others don’t and thinks differently than everyone else. It gives her hope that, one day, the others will do the same for her. Who knows, perhaps the Doctor really does exist, and some day, he will fly to her, and she could be his newest companion, and take her away from these people who wont accept her.
