S04E11 - A 'Must Read'

UPDATE 2014-01-29: Did some additions and restructuring.     I like season 4's episode 11 "Three's A Crowd" a lot because of the valuable lessons contained within that are touching on my own life experience ... especially one unlearned (!) lesson that might be too in-your-face (or inconvenient) for people to notice.     To begin with, this episode toys with a common tool in script writing, where subplots are wrapped up and vanish and we never hear of it again. I'm sure many people were won

The dangers of tickling Pinkie Pie

I was watching this tiny cut I made from the show:     and suddenly realized:   Giving Pinkie Pie the tickle treatment would render me unable to stop, even if I wanted to. I thought: It would be a vicious cycle and the metaphor of turbocharging came to my mind. Then I realized that the metaphor is more appropriate as I thought at first, because the thing that prevents a turbo engine from blowing up is the so-called "wastegate". And what will ultimately happen if you keep tickling som

How Pinkie Pie broke the fourth wall into this reality

Hay Bronies! Here is something I wanted to share with you.   Pinkie Pie is very dear to me. In a way she is representing a part of me that needs more expression. I embrace her spirit and welcome her nature into my being.   Lately I have made many animated GIFs and some caption pictures from the show. Half of the time I didn't look for specific scenes, but did other stuff and noticed them in the process.   That one time the idea came to be to make an aniGIF out of Pinkie Pie's final twitch

Being creeped out and loving it

I was just clicking through someone's deviantART gallery. I came to this picture...     ...and for some reason had a naughty thought about Pinkie Pie wanting Fluttershy to be a tree.                       Then I clicked to the next picture...

My brand-new personal OC

Might change later depending on how things go, but right now I'm quite content with it. The glasses were not done with perfection in mind. I just went with the flow and wanted to get it done. I'm still learning this stuff and didn't have that much patience. The base pony was made with the Pony Creator. The cutie mark was manually added by me. (The dolphin is a heavily modified clipart.) It represents the high frequency transmission of Dolphin characteristics like playfulness, sensitivity and z

Spontaneous idea: Twilight's scepter weapon mod for Skyrim

The bandwagon is irresistble.   Any mod desginer here who would like to do that? ... The model would make sense as a warhammer as well as a staff.   Although I guess some picture edits would be fun, too. I'm just not in the mood for stuff like that, otherwise I'd make something myself. But maybe this idea inspires you for all kinds of weapon-associated stuff involving that scepter.   But imagine how hiariously grotesque it would be to bash a dragon head in with that silly smily face. ...

MLP hasn't had a dark mirror universe episode yet

Everypony becomes evil - that would be hilarious.   Look at this and imagine the hilarity ensuring: http://giuliabeck.deviantart.com/art/Nightmare-Derpy-279568219   They'd all scheme and fight against each other and eventually realize that it's pointless, in part because when everypony is evil, nopony is evil. They'd also realize the stupidity and unsustainability of a life like that.

A friendly warning from Zecora

Mare, don't toke! If you care not to choke, then beware of the smoke from the bare poison joke!       inspired by:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnHULG4y6Oc

Equestria Girls comment (very mild spoilers)

- The remixed intro theme doesn't sound very elegant to me. The voice glitching a bit 'hacky'. Although it seemed to be heavily inspired by brony music. Same with the nice intro animations. A lot of abstract playing with shapes and colors.   - When Celestia mentioned that Sunset Shimmer might bring harm to the other world using the crown, one of the elements of harmony, I was amused by the pun... HARMony.   - Spike following Twilight was pretty reckless considering what Celestia expressed a

LOL - MLP dissed by little girl

I might write a long account of my experience at the UK's convention "BUCK" later, but I wanted to tell you about a funny experience I had on a bus on the way from Manchester Airport to the city:   An senior lady entered the bus with her niece, who was like the perfect target audience for MLP in any way; must have been between 5 and 7. I talked to the lady and mentioned MLP and the convention and we chatted. She asked her niece whether she had heard of My Little Pony, and the little girl said,

Pink does not equine... I mean equal pink

For a total Pinkie Pie fan, having good color display is even more exciting. Of all the colors, I am most stunned by how awesome and vivid pink looks on my monitor. So I made a comparative photo. It's not perfect, since a photo camera has trouble with photos like this. The monitors should display a color gradient from pastel-like at the top to extremely vivid pink on the bottom.   The photo will look different on various displays, but the relation (hopefully) should become clear. There should

Possible explanation why Zecora speaks in rhymes

This idea just came to me while rewatching Bridle Gossip:   Maybe Zecora speaks exclusively in rhymes because her first encounter with poison joke caused her to be unable to talk in anything but rhymes, and then she decided:     Joke's on you, my little blue plant! If you expect me to yearn for a cure, then I shan't.

Typical Pinkie Pie again

A while ago I added a lot of favorites from the MLP Vector gallery at deviantART, one character at a time. Just now I browsed through my favorites - endless Fluttershy pictures - when I saw this:       I just love it!

Equestria had a thousand years to make it right

I just had an epiphany. Finally I am able to put this into words.   Things happen for a reason, people are influenced greatly by their surroundings. A chain of events caused Luna to become Nightmare Moon, and the forces of love and empathy weren't powerful enough back then to stop it from happening, and neither could it be defused.   During "Luna Eclipsed", you could notice from her manners that things were different back then.   A thousand years later she returned, and her return coincide

Got my cheezburger account accidentally deleted today - YAAAY!

I've been very active on my brand new Cheezburger account (mylittlebrony.com) lately and they have a feature to create a "site" in addition to the regular account profile.

Derpy has good and bad news for Twiley

Derpy: "I have good news and I have bad news..." Twiley: "Tell me the bad news first." Derpy: "Oh... well, OK. I ate them." Twiley: "Huh? Ate what?" Derpy: "The muffins." Twiley: "What muffins?" Derpy: "The... the ones I made you." Twiley: "Oh! ... Well, it's alright. The gesture is what counts. ... Of making them, not eating them of course. So what's the good news?" Derpy: "I made you some muffins!! :-D"     inspired by: http://dm29.deviantart.com/art/I-Made-You-Some-Muffins-But-I-

Dan the jerk in Equestria Girls, wouldn't that be fun? ^^

Could be a minor/major school villain, teaching the lesson of how people dig their own grave, so to speak. ... Ah, there are so many other facets and potential subplots in this.   The thought was inspired by watching this little crossover again:     P.S.: Somewhat related crossover comic of mine: http://dowlphin.deviantart.com/art/How-Dan-managed-to-abduct-Rarity-412825674

What are your mane 3?

There are many quizzes out there about which pony you are most like, but those might not present the full picture, with personalities being more or less multi-faceted. If someone asked me, I'd say I am Pinkie Pie first, then Fluttershy, then Twilight Sparkle. Since I am somewhat versed in the theory of Eastern spiritual energy practices, I tend to view things from that perspective. The mane 6 are interesting anyway, since there are various polarities between them (TS vs. PP, R vs. AJ, RD vs FS)

Meet Lady Xiarity

There's another Star Citizen ship concept sale and it's a space bike. And it being called "Nox" spawned a flood of puns as never before. I was tempted to get the 2Pac with the black (Nox) and the silver (Nox Kue) one, but I'm not that bikuerious. So I ponied up the money and seaddled up on this space needle. Got the silver one. Seems more classy to me. It is made by Aopoa, which is a manufacturer of the Xi'an race. So I named it Lady Xiarity, which sounds like sharity -> charity -&g

Common BuSiness trend: Saying things because it isn't so

A message pops up on the deviantART page:   "It's important to have an up-to-date email address. Can we still reach you at the following address?"   This is one of those things that make me shake my head. One of the things that bother me about dA is the absence of the very basic and common feature of getting notification of new messages via e-mail. Few websites make an e-mail address as unnecessary as dA does. And now they want to ensure that they still can reach me under the address in my p
