Shining Armor Super Anime Attack Bear is Driving GO!
Mod : Shining Armor , beaten up and war-torn, squares off with Chrysalis and her Changeling hive in a dramatic last stand! Complete with anime-typical dialogue and an over the top final attack.
I felt I needed to post at least SOMETHING amusing here to provide some fleeting entertainment, so I did this. I grew out of my anime phase a long time ago, but Shining Armor screams typical bishi hero. The voice; the look; the personality…it’s all there! I’ve had this idea in my head for awhile now, and finally acted on it. It was fun practice! I actually wanted to be at this point in my own story by now, but, such is life. Hope you enjoy.

Chapter 2 : A Broken Shield

Summary : Shining Armor’s emotional revelation at dinner has taken a turn for the worst. The traumatic incident concerning the Royal Wedding has continued taking it’s toll on his mind, with further stress brought forth by his new title and responsibility as Prince of the Crystal Empire, ordaining alongside his beloved Princess Cadance. With vengeance and paranoia clouding his mind, Shining Armor has taken a vow to exterminate the creatures that almost ruined the very Kingdom he was supposed to protect.
(( I decided on no music and no sound effects for this monologue. It’s blank, save Shining’s voice. I wanted his emotions and pain to be fully recognized, the bleakness to really amplify the performance. Clearly he’s starting to lose it. I didn’t intend it for it to get this ‘dark’ — definitely something difficult to master with a canon character who has never really been grim or dour — but things happen! I hope you enjoy. ))
(( Shiny’s voice is a little deeper than normal here, due to me being a bit under the weather…but lets just say it’s from lack of sleep on his part. Please note I took some liberties with the Crystal Empire thing since not much is known about it. Once more info is released — and if my own is incorrect — I’ll probably retcon things. ))

The Aftermath of Shining Armor’s Drunken Streaming.
(( Did this with an actual hangover. Blugh. And yes, there is going to be actual plot to this askblog! Bit by bit~. I’m not considering the -entire- stream from before canon because it got pretty silly—but a good portion of the arguing I think is well enough to go on. ))
” Well. This is kind of…awkward, but despite what happened, I won’t jump to conclusions just yet. I didn’t get to be Captain from having horrible deduction skills.”
” From what I’ve heard multiple universes on here cross over a lot. Even Twiley’s told me she’s met other versions of herself…some not so wholesome.”
” Following that, there’s always another way to see if you’re a Changeling or not. Think fast! “
* sound of horn charging up ; magic burst *
” Just a harmless burst of arcane magic. A real Changeling would have untransformed and freaked out. Seems like you’re clear, Captain. Congratulations, on your own wedding. Just…keep out of this universe enough so Cadence and Twiley don’t get confused, alright? “
(( Mod Note: There will be unique, drawn artwork for this blog, but while I’m waiting for my artist to recover from a recent injury I thought I’d try and answer at least a couple of these through reaction pics/voice. ))
(( Also, this is really good practice! Helps me practice his voice outside of show lines. Thanks for the question, Captain Shining Armor. :D ))
edit: Outdated voice. Newer posts have better renditions.

(( This blog will kick off in a week or two, once I get some things settled with my main blog and other distractions. For now: PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. ))
(( Just a rendition of Shining Armor’s freakout on Twilight after she scares off Fake!Cadance. Slowly getting better at this voice. Higher tone seems to make it sound closer. ))
