Doctor Who

Doctor Who, a show that has been going on for 45 years now, is still popular, even in our school of Springwater Trail. How do the students feel about the show? well Foster says, “Doctor who has managed to touch my heart since I started to watch the show.”

The love for the show is ever present in our school, with people walking around with shirts or dresses themed off the show. Do you like the show?

Magic the Gathering

Magic the Gathering is a card game played at Springwater Trail High School, the fans of the game have things to say, Freshman, Annie says, “It’s nerdily FABULOUS!” which is true. Senior, Dominic Ortega said, “Magic the Gathering is a fun and interesting game to play with friends” and Freshman, Gawyne says, “It’s a thing” People at Springwater enjoy this game and normally play at lunch with friends. It’s a game that has been played since 1993, when it first came out. It’s an easy game to play, easy to learn how, and lots of fun once you start.

I invite anyone who doesn’t already play to try playing, you never know, maybe you’ll like it as much as the kids who already play at Springwater Trail High School.

Two-Kinds, The History

       Two-Kinds came to be at the start as a spur of the moment idea for Tom Fischbach in his early high school life, and grew over the 11 years in has been going on. 11 years! wow, for a comic to go on for that long, and by the size of the fan group.

      His art style has change from the first comic posted on October 22nd of 2003, to the current comic to date. Every Wednesday mostly is when a new wonderful comic comes out roughly. What was his reason to make Two-Kinds? the writer Tom Fischbach says “ I was inspired to write Two-Kinds after having experienced a lot of racial discrimination from kids at my school, who were predominantly white. My writing skills at the time were not very good, but I still felt like I was doing something good by trying to create a good message through my writing. After struggling to create a book for a year, I decided making a comic might be a better option. After working at my art for several more years, I finally came out with Two-Kinds on October 22nd, 2003.” In his comic most of the conflicting races are the Humans and the Keidran, but like most the best part of conflict is the fact that the two main characters Trace Legacy,24 (Human Male)and Flora of the rainforest tiger tribe,11 (Keidran Female) are the best of friends and there are even hints that they may even be in love!

      Every comic page is beautifully colored and the artwork is wonderful. Story is easy to follow even when it jumps between two groups. One consists of Trace,Flora,Natani Keith,Eric,Kathrin,Mike,Evals, and cute Madelyn, which are at sea at this point in time. The other consists of Zen,Sythe,Mrs Nibbly,Raine,Maren, and Karen, there is another but for now the red head is known as Database error, not much is known why, so we’ll have to wait. A dragon named Lady Nora is seen a lot in the comic, but doesn’t travel with anyone group. There are other characters but their not seen much yet. The plot of the story as the writer has posted on his page is “After losing his memory to a mysterious battle, Trace Legacy, a former leader for an organization of mages called the Templar, finds himself in the company of Flora, a girl of strange, tiger-like qualities. As Trace gradually begins to re-learn what he once knew, he soon discovers that Flora belongs to a race of people who are enemies of his kind. As friendship conflicts with racial differences, Trace and Flora find themselves in a situation more critical than either of them can imagine.” This is an outstanding comic, and I personally hope it will continue to grow and be loved for many years to come.

Bronies Vs. Anti Bronies!

    The "War" going on between the Bronies and anti Bronies is vary real. a stereotypical Brony is a 40 year old male watching a show made for 9 year old girls. Anti Bronies say bronies must be gay or have autism to watch such a show. Yes there might be some out there, but saying that adults can't watch kids show is like telling a grown man/woman can't watch cartoons or anime because there too old, no one is too old for a t.v show.

        So a Brony(or Pegasister) is a fan of the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, and an Anti Brony is someone that hates the show. There are many Bronies(males fans) and Pegasisters(if your a girl fan) around, like any fandom. Lots of Fan fictions, Flash games,and pictures float around the web, some inappropriate for young eyes as to the content. Those kinds of works came to be mostly because of the war, to upset the Anti Bronies. Cussing and put downs have been thrown around on Youtube videos and other sites. such as "Stop saying you like these characters for there personalities because they don't have personalities because they can't think because don't exist meaning they have no personalities." Characters have personalities, they cry and love just like us because we write them that why, to an author of a book, or a writer of a t.v series, they gets attached to the story, but mostly the people they brought to life. To a fan, they feel the same connection, we know they don't really live, but thats not the point. You don't have to exist to live and be loved. A true lover of something know the feeling, how attached you can get to a car or favorite toy.

       I know whatever I type won't stop this war, this conflict, but I want to try because I want it to end. Why can't people just stop? It's stupid to fight and post hateful things back and forth, what ever happened the saying "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all"? Like really? I want to be able to go onto Youtube,Tumblr, Facebook and not see things like "Ponies suck and your gay because you like them." and "No pony are not aloud to be in super smash bros. They are not welcome to Nintendo. Pony are invading thing and reacting  them. No pony allowed to Nintendo. Pony are dumb." these are only a few things people say to hurt others about being a brony.

Bronies and Pegasisters are normal people, stop the hate!
