MLP: EGRR Background: Portal Book Key Activator
With this piece of background, although it's not much, this is where Twilight placed the book that had Princess Celestia's cutie mark, in order to activate the portal, so that she can get to CHS.

I wonder what would happen if we tried using the Piston and Cross Wrenches insignia from Rainbow Dash's Jolly Wrench outfit, based on :iconaileen-rose:'s story? ;)

Link me back if you use this.

MLP: EGRR Background: The Mirror Portal, Again
Ready for another amazing adventure at CHS?

Then, in Twilight Sparkle's :icontwilight-mlp-sparkle::icontwilightsparkle-01:'s kingdom, you're in the right place, because she brought the portal from the Crystal Empire all the way to Ponyville, and has built a device to make it work, so that she can return to and visit CHS whenever she wishes! ^^

Thinking About Michael, While On The Journey by FavoriteArtMan
Thinking About Michael, While On The Journey
Finally, we're all aboard the train with Sally and Jessica asleep, and Rose Art and Twilight are in two different seats.

But... although we don't arrive in Canterlot till evening, I suddenly feel both worried, bad and bothered about something.

Belle :iconbelle-fire-engine: : What's wrong, honey? :worry: You look, uh... down about something.

Me: *sighs* I'm just thinking about my brother Michael :icontrainman3985:, love. Although I'm taking some time with my friends to Hearthswarming Eve, I wish I could've brought him with us, to make up for my recent episodes with him, and to make up for what I said in the second part of his new comic.

I just hope he's okay... :worry:

Belle: Give him time, baby. :cling: Let's just think about the holidays we'll be having when we get to Canterlot. :blushes:

Tell you what, when it's all over, and when it's time to come home, why don't we all surprise him with a nice Hearthswarming Eve dinner? :)

Me: Good idea, hon. ^^ :hug:

To Canterlot's Hearthswarming Eve by FavoriteArtMan
To Canterlot's Hearthswarming Eve
In light of my recent episodes with my brother, I decided to take some time off and head to Canterlot for the Hearthswarming Eve holidays and activities.

But like I said, I'm taking some time off, not leaving.

And since I'm heading to Canterlot for the holidays, I'm not alone for this endevor and for the holidays.

I decided to take :iconbelle-fire-engine:, :icontwilight-mlp-sparkle:, :iconaileen-rose:, :iconlgee14:, :iconxxrainbowdash-mlp:, and as their favorite foal-sitter, and now recently, based on :iconburntuakrisp:'s gift for me, her father, I decided to also bring Cameron and Dash's children, Jessica Flower and Guardian Spirit, and my (fan-made) little foal, Sally Rose. :)

So, we're all at the train station getting our tickets for the train, and waiting for the next train to arrive. ^^

Jarrod Prieto
United States
I'm an artist. I am a fan of everything. I commemorate and honor those who died, I am an Olympic equestrian; meaning I once competed for the Olympics in Howard County. I won six different trophies, twelve ribbons, seven gold medals, two silver medals, and one bronze medal. I have poster awards and honors. I even have blessings from Pope John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI. I've drawn many artistic things, mostly by scratch, and I am also very creative.

But sometimes, I watch movies, play video games and listen to music. I like traveling (my mom calls that term "Itchy feet!), and I love to tell stories. Lastly, I am honest, truthful, willing to forgive.

Family tragedies

December 4th, 1998- My father was hit by a drunk driver on the 2nd of December, and he was pronounced dead at 11:45 on the 4th.

October 1999- We lost our first home.

November 1st, 1999- The person who killed my father was fined $350, which caused us to lose our first home.

December 2nd, 2001- My mother got a broken knee from a swinging 20-mile-an-hour church door.


May 30th, 2003, the day 'Finding Nemo' was in theaters, while riding my bicycle home from school, less than a mile from home, I was hit by a car. I was badly hurt. The bike was sluggish. With the front fork badly bent, there was no way it could be fixed. The next day, the homeowner closed the lease on the house, and we lost our second home.

July 19th, 2005- My mother ended up in a wheelchair, no thanks to some nitwitted doctor!

2006- We lost our 3rd home, and moved to Florida.

September 28th, 2007- We lost our 4th home, and moved down here in Hudson.

January 2008- While bicycling to a nearby bread store, to keep dry, because of incoming rain, I was hit by a second car. I wasn't seriously hurt, but after helping me up, the driver left. So it was a hit-and-run, and it resulted in me, limping home on my bicycle. Luckily, the bike wasn't destroyed this time.

July 26th, 2008- 20 days after I came home from Texas, after seeing my brother and sister, my grandfather passed away. He was 73 years old.

October 2008- We left our old home, and moved into a rent-to-own house in Lily Pad Court.

2009- Lost our home in Lily Pad Court, but even as the year started, the house still has not yet been sold.

Throughout all those tragedies, especially in my elementary, middle and high school, I've lost a truckload of at least 49 friends in my neighborhoods.

Hobbies & Interests

Long-distance bike riding, helping my mother around the house, since she cannot walk. I like doing some exercising, meeting new people, telling stories and jokes, converting 1:24 scale NASCAR race cars into Cars characters. I often enjoy making slideshows, making meals for dinner, cooking, making videos to put onto youtube, even making videos by video camera. I also like playing video games, online games, racing games, and much, much more!


Movies & TV Shows


The movies and TV shows I love the best are The Land Before Time (meaning the films and episodes), Thomas The Tank Engine, The Incredible Mr. Limpet, The Polar Express, all Pixar films, with the exception of AUp@, since I have no interest in it, nor does my mother. Anyway, I also enjoy watching the Pixar Shorts, 'Everybody Hates Chris', Disney Short films in the 30s to the 70s, Static Shock, TITANIC, and her sister, BRITTANIC, the LUSITANIA. I even enjoy movies of Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jr., Kight Rider, MacGyver, Spider-Man, meaning The Animated Series, the movies, and Spider-Man Unlimited. I also love both Charlotte=s Web movies, Buzz Lightyear Of Star Command, Transformers, meaning the films and Transformers Cybertron. My least favorites are Both Bambi movies, both movies of The Fox And The Hound, and Gladiator. My few favorite movies and TV shows are are Star Wars, NASCAR on Fox, AEmergency!@, starring Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe, Rain Man, Bambi, Dumbo, Disney's 'Fantasia' (especially the Rite of Spring, since it is my favorite), and >Fantasia 2000=, >Dinosaur=, and some science movies, even some from National Geographic and Nova. My all time favorite is >Hero Of The Rails=. And sad and heartbreaking though some of them may be, I even learn about movies of 9/11, such as World Trade Center, Flight 93, and Inside 9/11.


Music

The music I enjoy listening to is some songs by Helmut Lotti, Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman, Rascall Flatts, Brad Paisley, Gordon Lightfoot, and Bobby Darin. From the movies, my least favorite music is from Top Gun, Cars, Star Wars, Flight 93, TITANIC, Simple Plan, even music from >Fly Away Home=, Simon & Garfunkel, Don Mc Lean, Evanescence, Sheena Easton, Gladiator, and Final Fantasy VII. My few favorites musics are from Celtic Bagpipes, Hoobastank, World Trade Center, The Statler Brothers, Star Wars, Coldplay, Josh Groban, Russel Watson, ABBA, The Land Before Time, Johnny Cash (Casey Jones), Sweetbox, The Beu Sisters, and Mike Posts 'Macgyver' theme, the Knight Rider theme, and a few tracks from The Lion King II.

My upmost favorite books are The Land Before Time, Bambi, Ghost Liners, Spider-Man Comics, and whatever else captures my interest, and whatever else I come across. Or, for that matter, whatever I can get my hands on.

On Playstation 3, my favorite games are the Ridge Racer 7 demo, Burnout Paradise demo, Spider-Man: Friend Or Foe, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and whatever else amazes and interests me.

Famous People I've met

Dale Jarrett
The Original Star Trek cast
Helmut Lotti
Michael Crawford
Sarah Brightman
Patrick Stewart
Sir Derek Jacobi
John Paul II

I have done so many great arts throughout my life. I mean, I have drawn almost all of the characters from The Land Before Time, and I even drew some different dinosaurs. I have even drawn and colored some pictures of Bambi. The other arts that I drew and cut out were Charlotte from the 1973 movie 'Charlotte's Web', Charlotte's daughters from 'Charlotte's Web 2', and from at least four NASCAR coloring and activity books, I drew and cut out images of what Tony Stewart's #14, Jeff Gordon's #24, Jimmie Johnson's #48 and Earnhardt, Jr's #88 cars would look like in the Pixar movie 'Cars'.

Places I've been to, in my past


I have been to New York, to see and meet Sir Derek Jacobi after one of his plays. I have been to Baltimore, at least once or twice, to see the B&O Railroad Museum. I have even been to Washington D.C., often to go to Arlington Cemetery to see my father, and to have a picnic lunch at Fort McHenry. I=ve even been to Boston, Alexandria, Gettysburg, and the Vatican, at least two times. The reason why I went to Gettysburg, was because I was on a field trip, one day, and I wanted to see what the battlefield looked like today, after the civil war. And just recently, in 2008, I went to Texas and Oklahoma to see my older brother and sister. My sisters kids were hard to get along with, but I managed to set them straight. I haven=t had the chance to meet my niece that year, but I hope to do so one day, since I plan to go back to Texas and Oklahoma one day.

Those are all the places I=ve been to around the 90s, and in 2008.



Places I wish I could go to, and why

The first place I wish I could go to is Japan, because ever since I heard that that was where Hiro's Island was, I've been curious about it ever since. I mean, I may have already learned about it in school, for history class, but what I am more deeply interested in, is the island itself, as it is today. I mean, according to Hiro, there are mountains and snow and sea. What other mountains are there, besides Mt. Fuji? How often does it snow? Anyway, what I am even more interested in is, ever since Hiro mentioned it, the railways. I mean, according to him, there are lots of railways. The train I am most interested in riding on, is the D51 498, since that's the train Hiro is based on.

The second place I wish I could go to is New York City, because not only have I been there once, even before 9/11, though I was annoyed with it, until 2006, I thought about visiting Ground Zero, to see where the World Trade Center once stood. I have even thought about laying a Holy Wreath on Ground Zero, too.

The third place I wish I could go to is Shanksville, Pennsylvania, because I feel like seeing the site where Flight 93 crashed.

There are so many other places I wish I could go to, but I never, ever had the chance.


Whom I honored after their death, and why

The first person I had honored after his death was George Carlin, because I enjoyed him not only as Mr. Conductor in Shining Time Station, and as well as one of the best Thomas narrators throughout season 1-4, but I never heard of his death, until August of 2008. When he first died, I was mad for sever al months about it. In fact I was upset about it, and I made a decision to never again watch Thomas The Tank Engine, but I couldn't help myself. Therefore, on youtube, I honored him with the song 'My Immortal' by Evanscence, and I made a Thomas & Friends video to go with it.

The second person I had honored after his death was Thomas & Friends director David Mitton, because not only have I never heard of him at all, until I looked him up on wikipedia.com. I mean, I have never heard of his death until the same day I found out about George Carlin's death. When David first died, I was even madder about it. And so, on youtube, I honored both George and David with the song 'How Could This Happen To Me' by Simple Plan, and I made another Thomas & Friends video to go with it.

The third event that I had honored after it occurred, was all the victims of the Columbine High School Massacre, because I never heard of it, or actually seen it, until I first saw the Static Shock episode 'Jimmy', where, according to the description, a bullied youth brings a gun to school. I mean, after I first saw 'Jimmy', I never thought school violence would be that aggressive. Apparently I thought wrong. Then, when my mother showed me a video of the Columbine High School Massacre, by seeing it mostly from Eric Harris' and Dylan Klebold's point of view, I learned how those two "left out" and bullied youths committed the worst high school massacre in American history. On the video, I saw them kill 12 students, one teacher, injured 23 others, and then turned their guns on themselves. I was glad my mother had taken me out of public school, seven years after that, because since I was a bullied youth in high school as well, I almost wanted to avenge Eric and Dylan, and commit another high school massacre of my own, but I'm glad I didn't. Therefore, since I've never heard of the Columbine Massacre until 2009, I honored all the shooting victims with the song 'Amazing Grace' by the Celtic Bagpipes, and I made a video about it, too. I chose that song, because not only was it heard in Star Trek IV: The Wrath Of Khan, but it's what most Scottish and American Bagpipers play at funerals to honor some famous people that died.

Hey Jarrod. I noticed that the number in your thumbnail used to say 23 and now it says 24. I'm guessing that's the number of your current age, right?
