For close to thirty years, Hazy Memories Photography Ltd had been contracted to take the annual student portraits for almost every school in the Montgomery County School District. Oh sure, every so often another studio might underbid them, but parents always insist on returning to Hazy Memories before long. No other studio prodcued the same great images; smiles were never as bright nor cheeks as rosy when other studios got the contract. A teacher once asked the photographer on duty what the secret was to those great pictures; he just laughed and said that Hazy Memories used “special” cameras that “liked children.”  That was true enough. But what he didn’t tell her was that occasionally — so rarely that it’s hardly even worth mentioning — there were kids that the camera, what whatever reason, didn’t like. When that happened, parents received an apology in the mail — the negatives were lost or the film was overexposed or something went wrong and could you bring in your child for a resitting? The not-so-special replacement photos were never quite as good, but they were certainly always better than the photos that parents would never see.
A short little story about Nate and Becky from Guttersnipe on school picture day.

If I haven’t mentioned it enough yet, I should mention that you can see my comic Guttersnipe posted on my childeatingmonsters tumblr, because I don’t bother posting it here.

so, stsartandstuff is the angry anon who's been trolling you about gamergate for days, right?

Honestly, I doubt it.  Stsartandstuff and I don’t really see eye to eye on some things, but he’s never been shy about stating his opinions using his own name. I think the anonymous coward is probably someone with less integrity.

Gamergate isn't over yet. We're still fighting.

My imaginary wife and children thank you for your sacrifice! :)

Hey, you heard about that thing happening in Hong Kong? Thoughts?

Pretty damn upsetting!

Can you explain what the hell this new brony related pic of yours is about?

http://www.horse-news.net/2014/09/anti-brony-cameo-in-idw-comics-results.html

In a nutshell, Ted Anderson, a writer for the IDW My Little Pony comics, inserted a cameo by Tumblerite Dragondicks’ OC into the latest issue. The rank and file of neckbeards became livid with range because apparently Dragondicks has made posts on Tumblr about how bronies are dumb, so she is obviously WORSE THAN HITLER and Ted Anderson is WORSE THAN SOMEONE WHO WOULD LET HITLER CAMEO IN A THING SO MAYBE LIKE LENI RIEFENSTAHL OR SOMETHING, so they started a campaign to get Anderson fired.  Early responses from IDW appeared to indicate that they were successful, which is probably the single most hilarious thing in the world if, indeed, the editors at an actual, successful, professional publisher were to say GREAT CAESAR’S GHOST, THIS CARTOON HORSE THAT APPEARS IN THE BACKGROUND OF A SINGLE PANEL IS MAKING THE MANBABIES CRY SO HARD THAT THEY’RE SPILLING THEIR MOUNTAIN DEW GAMER FUEL ALL OVER THEIR FINGERLESS BLACK GLOVES, HEADS WILL ROLL!.

I guess after the complete failure of gamergate, awful nerds feel that they need to find some way to reassert their dominance as the gatekeepers of pointless pop culture garbage.

They copied my idea! XD. But seriously expect something like this but more comedy/sexy to it .P

I usually don’t like a bony ass, but I’ll make an exception this time!

In terms of something that encapsulates the Bronys' insecure hypermasculine imprinting on a pure-hearted girl's show, I have only one word: "Wingboner".

Is that a thing they do?

So is Fedora-Neckbeard burning effigy pony's special talent to point out "Not All Bronies"? Or is his cutie mark representative of his aptitude with ham-handed political cartoon-level labelling? Either way, wow, did he ever get a raw deal on the special talents. I kind of feel sorry for ole Fedora Neckbeard.

His cutie mark represents my inability to think of a picture that succinctly encapsulates the brony experience.

Maybe I should have drawn a blue pill? Or is it a red pill? I forget…

Tedlyanderson’s enemies are gathering!
For those of you just joining us, laughable Internet nerds are FURIOUS that a pony they dislike appeared in the latest pony comic. They are LIVID and they are legion and they will NOT take this lying down!
