Timmy VS Twilight | The Gauntlet (Prelude 2/2)
Lance: Hey guys! Before heading into Twilight's portion of this prelude, make sure you check out Timmy's portion first, along with our opening statements and disclaimers. It's important that you read all of that before moving forward. You can find it right below. 
Intro & Timmy Turner:

Ace: If you're returning from there, welcome back and thanks! One thing to note before we continue: there will be spoilers for both the Friendship is Magic Season 7 finale and the My Little Pony Movie. If you guys have seen them already, then you have nothing to worry about. But do be aware that in order to properly review Twilight, we must explicitly mention events that occur in these. So we encourage you to go watch those first before moving along. With that out of that way, let's pick right back up. Here goes.

Timmy VS Twilight | The Gauntlet (Prelude 1/2)

(cue Anime Orchestra! XY & Z (Pokémon XY & Z) [Full Version])

Ace: Magic. It comes in many different forms, with many different properties, serving many different purposes. But universally, it is an unexplainable source of supernatural energy that, depending on the user, can alter reality on a whim, change the world around them, and potentially influence the course of events. Throughout history, many have shown proficiency in utilizing their special gifts, but today we explore two memorable magic-users famous for utilizing their own forms of magic to save the day.
Lance: Ohhh man, it's finally time. We've been working on this for years. While it may not look like it at first glance, both of these two beloved fighters

Prelude: Ravager vs. Gwenpool


Lance: Mercenaries; they come in wide varieties, whether they're man or woman, strong or sleek, vengeful or outright insane! But they do whatever it takes to terminate the issue and collect their bounty. If you come face-to-face with one of these guys, don't judge them by their looks; it's their skills that count!
Ace: Such is the case when it comes to these crazy but deadly mercs.

Ace: The Ravager, Rose Wilson.
Lance: And The Unbelievable Gwenpool! He's Ace & I'm Lance.
Ace: Today we're examining their armor, arsenal and abilities to conclude who would win The Gauntlet.

Lance: Rose Wilson, aka the Ravager is the badass vigilante daughter of Slade Joseph Wilson and a prostitute. Trained to be a remorseless killer, she--

Twilight Sparkle reports into The Gauntlet! (prev)
Lance: Welcome back folks!
Ace: Glad you guys decided to join us for another preview of our prelude analysis! Last time, we reviewed Timmy Turner's rundown in brief. Now it's time to take a look at his opponent, Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Ace: Before we begin, a couple notes to take into account:
Twilight will be able to utilize any and every spell or ability she has used or clearly witnessed (and can realistically replicate) from throughout the series, including the show, comics and films.As the aforementioned forms of medium are currently ongoing at the time of writing, Twilight's prelude information is subject to receive changes and/or new additions up until the final results of the fight are released.This likewise applies to her opponent.As her opponent is allowed access to other tools, abilities and forms via external sources, Twilight likewise is allowed to receive abilities and forms attr

Timmy Turner poofs into The Gauntlet! (preview)
Lance: Hey everyone! Ace and Lance here, back from taking a break from that totally-lit dragon v. dragon showdown!
Ace: And as they say, with one story's end, comes another's beginning! Timmy vs Twilight, a fight that has been in literal development for years, is finally coming soon!
Lance: But not soon enough, so we decided to whip up some special treats for you guys as you wait for this next fight!
Ace: Indeed, and that's in the form of previews of our prelude analysis.
So let's take a look at the combatants, starting with Timmy Turner of The Fairly OddParents.

Ace: As brought to our attention by some long-time enthusiasts of The Fairly OddParents, there have been questions, concerns and more about how exactly we are approaching this; how much of Timmy's "arsenal" we are including? Will Timmy have access to Cosmo & Wanda? Are any extended cast members going to be involved?
Lance: Well this is our show, and this

[Picking up from the previous part...]
Both Shadow Mario and Garbunkle stared each other down for a good moment, both awaiting the other’s first move.
Junior slightly took off his bandana (but retained his shadowy appearance) to charge up a blast of fire. In response, Garbunkle also charged his own fire blast.
Both had each other close in their line of sight as they concentrated on their attack. There was no holding back now, as both fire-breathing assistants to royal leaders were now fi

Ace: And so, The Gauntlet is thrown. Could Bowser Jr's thick hide and set of equipment conquer the baby dragon, or could Spike's tough scales and raw firepower triumph over the Koopa prince?
Lance: Only one way to find out! It's time for a right-hand dragon showdown!

[SNEAK PREVIEW] Spike VS Bowser Jr | The Gauntlet
(NOTE: If you have not read the prelude analysis for this match-up, I highly recommend reading it over here):

What you're about to read is a short sneak-peak at the first couple of paragraphs for the battle portion of Spike vs Bowser Jr.
As of posting this, the fight is currently being written, and in the meantime, I thought I'd tide you guys over with a little bit of what's to come. I hope you guys enjoy it, I'm having a lot of fun writing it.
A quick note is that there is an excuse plot prior as to why the two are fighting, but I decided against including it here as it's a bit long, and I figured you'd guys like to see more of the combat besides the story. In addition, I will also be including fully-illustrated pictures of some of the scenes from the fight as well. Lastly, what you're about to read is technically tentative, meaning some scenes and/or dialog

Attention ALL DEVIANTART DB WRITERS! (or whatever)
Forgive me as I NEVER use DeviantArt...

October 31th, 2016 marked the day where I began my journey as... a director/animator/guru person. This was the release of White Ranger vs. Leonardo on (now discontinued) Just Another Crossover Fighting Show. About a year and a month later, and I am leading Crossover X, the former show rebranded. It's been some ride, and I decided that I'm going to give back to the DA and VS community in the best way I can. By how? By giving the best damn assets, animations, and advice, that's what! (Also making sure CX becomes extremely big or something)
Very soon. 
Talking Sonic running up on ya' spot soon, I'll be starting/picking up where LK Sixty-Four left off. Creating animations for the good old folks in this community, but upping the ante by also providing custom thumbnails, analysis slides, character select screens, services like ghostwriting, whatever.

Prelude | Godlike

Charlotte: Rage. Anger. Two of the strongest and most destructive emotions of a human.
T: Holy shit... Finally... Well, anyway, it's not like you'd know something about that, would you? Neither of you, actually.
Rex: But even with that in mind, you wouldn't expect emotions to be weaponized in the way that today's two fighters did.
T: Well I guess you would know something about it since you're a bigger green ball of anger than the god damn Hulk-
Rex: Shut.
T: Alright.
Rex: Akuma, the Raging Demon.
Charlotte: And Kratos, the Ghost of Sparta.

First Appearance: Super Street Fighter II Turbo (23rd of February 1994)

Hey guys! Time for an update journal!

Before anything, go check out this awesome Bowser Jr bio made by the awesome :iconzoomdooge123:! This is technically a collaboration between us both, as I helped contribute a good portion of information from my prior prelude with the little guy. Big thanks to him for making it, using the info I had, and finally giving Junior the bio he's deserved for quite some time. ^_^

Prince Bowser Koopa Jr.
Height: Most likely ~3'11"
Weight: Unknown, is light or medium in Mario Kart
Age: Most likely ~5-10
Species: Koopa

-Managed to be Bowser's best army member
-Usually goes toe-to-toe with Mario
-Actually did beat Mario and Luigi once
-One of the Mushroom Kingdom's smartest enemy
-Successfully framed Mario for "vandalizing" Delfino Plaza
-Managed to conquer the Baseball Kingdom with little help from Bowser
-Could take on Bowser himself
-Along with his father, stole all the Mini Stars in sight
-Successfully revived Bowser
-Got into Super Smash Brothers

-Could drag Bowser with some difficultly
-Could carry Princess Peach and run away from Mario easily
-Tossed Dry Bowser over his head (about 30 lbs. if you're 200 lbs.)
-Can easily lift a giant metal sphere
-Hung to a Bullet Bill from Stonehenge to England (80 miles)
-Threw/kicked a Koopa shell hard enough to one shot

Moving on! It's finally that time. Timmy vs Twilight, research-wise, is nearing completion. (Or at least as complete as I could make it.) Had to look through a lot of material (the shows, films, books, comics, games, tie-in material, etc). Surprisingly, these characters have a lot to offer in the context of a vs match, and there's a lot of stuff I won't even be able to mention, mostly because they either wouldn't really fit into a Death Battle, no longer have it, etc. Besides obviously trying to figure out how I want to go about creating this fight and managing other obligations both online and personally, it stands to reason why this took over five years.

Timmy vs Twilight thumb e1 by m3Atl0afman

[Timmy art: abracatastrophes ; Twilight art: NineDoodles]

(Huge shout out to abracatastophes for allowing me to use the art! Be sure to check out his awesome (& adorable) work in the link above! Also check out NineDoodles' work above, who's doing commissions!)

For those unaware, I mentioned last month that because of how long both bios ended up becoming, I had to split them off into two separate bios. With that said, should all go according to plan and I don't feel the need to add anything more to it, Timmy's portion of the prelude will be releasing first this coming Friday, October 27th.

I would release both Timmy and Twilight at the same time, but I'm doing this way for two reasons:
  1. So that there is an adequate amount of spacing in-between releases, giving each character their own day to shine. I wouldn't want one or the other to be overshadowed or have barren comment sections while the other attains more because of the reader reading them back-to-back. At least not upon release.
  2. The season 7 finale for My Little Pony has yet to air on American television as of this journal, and I wouldn't want to release Twilight's bio one day before it does since it will reference the events of this finale. I'm aware that these episodes have been leaked and can be publicly viewed anytime online, but I would rather stick to supporting the official airing. That said, I have not yet seen these episodes, and will wait until I do to completely finish Twilight's portion. But for the most part, it is pretty much finished minus a few necessary touch-ups. (Also yes I have seen the Movie in theaters, and accounted for events from that too.)
As for when Twilight's portion will be out, I'm gonna make an educated guess and say sometime between Saturday, October 28th and Friday, November 4th. Depends on when I can get it done and if enough time has passed since Timmy's came out. After that, my focus will be on the fight itself, and I got a lot of ideas planned for that. It may or may not also involve some collaborations if I'm able to make it happen.

One last thing, check this out:

The Gauntlet now has an official opening video! It's gained the approval of a couple friends of mine and I think that it came out great! Check it out when possible! :)

That's pretty much it for now! Thanks guys! Hope you enjoy the upcoming prelude!

Hey guys, just wanted to post an update relating to Timmy vs Twilight!
The prelude isn't done as of right now (it's pretty large, and I can only consider Timmy's section complete, provided nothing else comes up).

However, to tide you guys over, I'm gonna take a note from ScrewAttack and put out some "previews" for the prelude. They obviously won't be the complete versions of them because I want you guys to be able to read the full versions, but they should tide you over until then.

Gonna be posting Timmy's preview very soon, so I hope you guys look forward to that. I've been excited to share his side of things for the longest time. (You guys will get to see Twilight's side of things later.)
