Part Three: Once Upon A Forest
Note: Kougamiís Characterization will be more along the lines of his Cakeboss character. If you havenít heard of Cakeboss, heís pretty much The Ultimate Warrior if he baked cakes. Hereís a link to the archives of this guyís exploits, just so you can get a feel for him
Sigh, alright, so I struck up a deal with Kougami. He will only stay until the end of this part. Heís only in it for the cake. Are you ready, Kougami?
: YEAH! ITíS ON LIKE DONKEY KONG! THESE THREE THINGS HAPPENED WHEN WE LAST LEFT OFF THE LIVEBLOG!
THE FIRST! MALEFICENT CURSES AURORA WHEN SHE WAS A BABY! THE SECOND! THE FANTASY ADVENTURE TEAM OFFERS THEIR HELP TO THE FAIRIES! AND THE THIRD! THE FAIRIES FAIL TO MAKE CAKE!
...Okay then... Onwards to part three...
Part Three Of Six, halfway done!
So we have Aurora do what most Disney Princesses
do: sing in the highest pitch you can sing and have animals follow you around. After what Hasbro did
, I never looked at this trope the same way again... No, really, I am afraid Aurora will go all yandere
on the animals if they hate her.
: I REMEMBER WHEN I HAD ANIMALS FOLLOW ME AROUND! I HAD THEM SLAUGHTERED AND HAD THEIR ORGANS BAKED INTO MY CAKES! I THEN GAVE THOSE CAKES TO PETA! THEY CAN SUCK IT!
...Alright... So four minutes in and Bruma comments on how nice the view is and Leo replies by saying it takes him back to when he and Benny were filming a movie called Sleeping Lioness.
: WAIT! THIS GUY FILMED A MOVIE? WHAT ABOUT?
Well, itís just Sleeping Beauty but with random characters drawn over the characters. Surprisingly, I do like the drawings and how they photoshopped the characters from the original out of the shot and put their own characters in and that they did some animation as opposed to just still shots. However, I was watching a bit of the Special Edition so that might be why. The normal edition is actually set up like a comic book, so meaning that the special edition can be seen as a Motion Comic. There is a slight change in the form of Facilier (yes, THAT Facilier) teaming up, but it goes nowhere. Likewise, thereís some flaws, like how the animation is pretty much just people being dragged and dropped from one place to another. Really, just watch and see for yourself.
: STOP RAVING AND GET BACK TO THE BLOG!
Okay then, moving on, Aurora starts babbling on about how her ďauntsĒ are treating her like a child and told the animals that she did in fact meet a stranger, despite the warnings from her aunts. In a dream. So yeah, we get this scene where the animals put on the Princeís clothes and dances with Aurora. Then the real Prince, without his princely clothes and thus identified as a stranger, comes and dances with her. With Leo, Bruma, Keirel, and Panthy watching and knowing very well that she shouldnít talk to strangers. Predictably, they allow her to flirt with the stranger. I would call them out for it, but then I remember that Leo did Sleeping Lioness, which is Sleeping Beauty nearly scene for scene. He knows that this will end up being a good thing
. Wow. Thatís... pretty smart.
: SHUT UP! I DONíT CARE FOR THIS TOMFOOLERY! I WANT TO SEE SOME CAKE FAIL!
Okay then! So the fairies fail in cake making and dress making.
: OH MY GOD! THE CAKE IS THE LEANING TOWER OF PISA!
: And that dress is simply horrifying! Look at all those stitches! Itís a crime against fabulosity!
: AHHHH! TALKING UNICORNS! MY SORCERY CANNOT SIMPLY WORK AGAINST UNICORNS!
Rarity? What are you doing here?
: Well, I overheard you saying how there was some serious failure to make a dress and I simply had to have a look.
... Thatís all youíre here for? Alright, very well.
The remaining Fantasy Adventure Team members do
offer some form of advice-
: Advice? These guys simply just say that the woman in redís definition of ďimprovementĒ doesnít match theirs and one of them even asks what would happen if the King sees his daughter wearing that. No actual advice is given! At least when my
friends were giving me advice on how I should make their dresses for the Gala, they at least told me where to improve, even if the dresses ended up being the laughing stock of Ponyville!
Yeah, youíre right! Fauna offers more sounding advice than those guys! They just sit there and do nothing
. Eventually, Merryweather is fed up and decides to use the wands. And thus they make the cake and dress via magic.
: AH! NOW I REMEMBER WHY I DONíT USE MY INSANE SORCERY SKILLS TO MAKE CAKES! THEYíRE TOO EASY!
And the Fantasy Adventure Team sit back and watch it all happen, not even offering to do any help. Nah, leave that all to magic. In fact, they donít even try to break up the ďBlue! Pink!Ē war between Flora and Merryweather. They just all go ďderpĒ as they see the battle unfold. Those who watch the film will know what happens.
Oh, right. Some people didnít watch the movie. Recap time! Eventually, Maleficentís pet raven, Diablo, sees the flashes of pink and blue and spies on them, thus revealing their spot to Maleficent. I will admit that Iím pretty sure that no one noticed that the blasts of pink and blue were being jettisoned out of the fire place, and that Fauna has much to blame than the other members of the team. Screw it, Iíll let it slide because of what happens next:
Everyone turns either pink or blue. Really. Itís sort of funny to see that. We end the part here. Oh, Kougami and Rarity, hereís the perfectly done cake and dress you waited all of Part Three for.
: THE CAKE IS WONDERFUL!
: What I wouldnít give for that dress!
Well, are you two satisfied? Good. Now get out. Tune in next time for part four.
