  2. Ponies! Ponies! Ponies! That is all. Happy Season Premiere Day!
  3. This was the perfect way to begin the season. It's the perfect blend of funny, dark, serious, and crowd-pleasing.
  4. So here we are at the premiere of the final season of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. It certainly has been quite the journey getting here. I know that I am going to miss the show when it ends, but I was also excited to see how the final season was going to turn out. When given previews and synopsis for the premiere, I was rather interested in seeing what this episode had to offer. After watching The Beginning of the End I have to say that it was a pretty solid season premiere. I enjoyed how by now Spike and the mane 6 are able to expertly handle Twilight's freakouts as I feel that does a good job at showing how close their friendship has grown over the years. I also really liked the joke where Rainbow Dash said that the princesses have literally almost never helped out. I am also someone who gets a kick out of continuity nods so seeing them in the premiere was pretty nice, and also helped with the tone of this being the final season. I knew that King Sombra was going to return here, and that Grogar was going to appear her, but I was surprised to see Chrysalis and Cozy Glow show up as well. Cozy Glow was great here, and had some pretty funny lines. These episodes did a great job showcasing and celebrating the friendship of the mane 6, and I really did enjoy the conflict of Twilight having to get used to being a new ruler of Equestria. Discord also had a pretty good showing here as an effective trickster mentor, which I appreciated. Overall I really enjoyed this premiere and I am looking forward to see what the rest of the season has to offer.

  6. I actually didn't have a problem with the pacing in this episode, they needed to cover A LOT so it felt like the necessary pace that they needed to go at. The most important things in any episode are the character and the story, and I thought the character interaction was pretty damn excellent and the idea of all these foes uniting to take down Twilight is something to truly behold! It's almost been 9 years guys! 9 years! But anyway, the episode did have some problems admittedly. Those being Twilight's characterization, the laughable defeat of Cadence and Shining, Celestia and Luna's out of nowhere retirement and some pretty horrendous power scaling.
  7. Well, welly well well. This was a premiere alright. The pacing fluctuated between rushing and too slow-paced. The characterization for the mane 6 is great, all of them. And Celestia/Luna get their moments too and even help (off-screen, but still a real surprise to me). Even if I didn't like the pacing, I'm glad they used this episode to set up the overarching plot for the season. Gives us something to all look forward to! Also, I need more Tirek and Cozy interaction in my life.
  8. Well that was a pretty solid premiere, I gotta say. It's mostly what i expected from a 'league of villains' introduction episodes but with some really nice moments here and there. The best thing about this premiere is definitely Discord. His acting skill is subpar personally, but I love that he's a motivator and not being a prick about it. Having him to fake his own injury just to get them to actually not depend on him to save the day is nice and of course, shows that he cares (in his own way that is). Besides Sombra unexpected voice, I feel like he was just too typical of a villain and it's pretty much a test subject for Grogar to gave Tirek, Chrysalis and Cozy a warning to never defy his demands to work together. I get the point, but it's pretty disappointing. Who knows? Maybe he'll bring him back from the dead again since he has done that before. Nice character interactions, cool effects on the beam fights here and there and I do like the struggling moments where the mane 6 were despairing over their love ones being controlled by Sombra. It's nothing much, but I like that it's there.

    All I want is for Friendship is Magic to not end on a cliffhanger in order to hype up a new movie.

Title: The Beginning of the EndAir Date: April 6th, 2019Written By: Lady Writers (Joanna Lewis & Kristine Songco) Twitter | Site | IMDB (Songco , Lewis)Synopsis: In the back-to-back season premiere titled “The Beginning of the End,” Princess Celestia and Princess Luna decide to retire and hand off the ruling of Equestria to Twilight Sparkle and her friends, which sends Twilight into a tailspin of self-doubt. Meanwhile, an ancient villain bands together a legion of nefarious characters to conquer all of Equestria, challenging Twilight Sparkle and the rest of the Mane 6 to step in and save the day.

    P-Princess Luna?! Why are you in my house?
  13. I disagree, she's: - Spread friendship around the world of Equestria and forged several alliances with her friends. - Proven herself to be selfless and diplomatic - In addition to the countless times that she's saved the world from an impending apocalypse.

    Lyra's such a beautiful pony!
  15. I'm VERY impressed of the two-parter of the final season, which shows that Hasbro is bringing their a-game on. And King Sombra having his own spoken dialogue is a step-up, and he wasn't playing around when he meant business, especially by destroying the Tree of Harmony. And Grogar... one glance and you realize that he's the mastermind of all this, and he isn't playing around as well. King Sombra was defeated a second time at the end, only this time, no respawns. This time, it was a permadeath, which I realized that King Sombra was indeed gone for good, which shows that Grogar isn't playing around. He really means business that those who fail or betray Grogar... he's clearly sending a message and Tirek, Cozy Glow and Chrysalis are seriously taking notes about this. What a way to start of Season 9.
  16. This is definitely the best premiere, if only because it acknowledged how useless Celestia and Luna have been throughout the entire series.
  17. The one true way to end the series is to close the book, like how the book was opened to begin the series back in Episode 1.

    Woke up too early this morning. Guess I'll hangout here for a bit. Good morning, everypony!
  19. My main language is not English so I apologize for the errors I will make. I hope to have a good time here and I am sure I will! Mine favorite characters are: Rainbow dash, Lightning dust, King Sombra and Luna.

    Chapter 7 is up! This one is short but it's more of a prelude to the next chapter. I haven't started working on Chapter 8 but I can guarantee that it's going to be big! https://www.fimfiction.net/story/431617/7/see-how-the-night-sky-glows/chapter-7-girl-to-guy-advice

    Oh, and here's a little something to celebrate the final season (and a huge nostalgia bomb for me), the official extended version of the FIM theme song. I don't know how many of you have heard it before but I love how it's got a bit of an 80s tune to it, you know?
  22. This is still technically a spoiler so I will post this here. This is some great artwork!
  23. I have a feeling he will come back. Just a feeling... Was I the only one that adored Discord in these two episodes? I just liked how they wrote him!
  24. I’m glad that Sombra wasn’t a one trick pony (pun intended?). He had a plan within a plan to take over. He’s shown to be an effective villain.

    An amazing tribute to an amazing franchise! Doom is Eternal!
  27. How 'bout applauding the Lady Writers and crew for how genius Discord's written here? He's unbelievably hilarious here, and his acting while being "hurt" is really convincing. How William Anderson built up the score alongside Discord's exasperation at the end sells the timing. This episode also not just fixes TCE in a way, but calls back Princess Twi, too. In TCE, Celestia and Luna are supposed to be Twi's guides and mentors, but they leave responsibilities up to Twilight to fend off Sombra. Here, Celly and Luna test Twi's strengths by preparing for the coronation abruptly, but at the time, there was no threat. When Sombra returned, they had no idea and weren't warned by Twi. Star Swirl contacted them to get involved. Additionally, Discord's amoral; it makes perfect sense for him to test the RM6 and idle by. In PTS, Discord wasn't on good terms with anyone besides FS. When he revealed to accidentally planting the seeds, no one trusted him. Now their relationship's much stronger, so they trust him more.
  28. Some people are treating Sombra like a meme already for losing again He got VERY close and once again did better than most villains.
  29. I think they pulled it off fantastically. I don't consider "fast" "rushed"
  30. The pacing was great, just because thing happen quickly doesn't make it "rushed" it flowed quite naturally. Sombras voice is great imho, after a few lines I was fully on board with it. Sombra, despite being a pawn in the end, proved to be a useful and powerful villain capable of winning if it weren't for hero powers. STARSWIRL SHOWED UP Grogar is hella intimidating The villains all seem at their best for entertainment value. It was hilarious, especially Discord vs Sombra, which reminds me DISCORD WASN'T NERFEEEED LADY WRITERS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>MEGHAN CELESTIA AND LUNA DID SOMETHING LADY WRITERS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>MEGHAN I LOVED this premiere, easily one of my favorite two parters in the series.
  31. Yeah I can see that. It was a fun set up for the Map Table conversation where it was shown that the friends know her like the back of their hoof, but that should have been the end of that and just let her slowly build up to her feeling of dread that she’s out of her league. I’m putting the link up here is a sec
  32. Not to mention that we still have 24 episodes before she officially becomes the new ruler. It's a season-spanning story. You'd be freaking out too if over the course of 1 day, you: - Were chosen to become the ruler of an entire nation. - Found out that your family had been kidnapped by a formerly dead enemy. - Watched as your source of power had been destroyed. - Saw your loved ones being hypnotized trying to kill you.

    I'm going to try and be online a lot more here on MLPF, I just keep forgetting to come on, but not I'm going to try and leave MLPF tab open on my new computer, oh and I forgot to mention, I am getting a new computer, not brand new, but it's refurbished HP ProBook, only £70 (~$130), sadly it comes with Windows 10, instead of Windows 8.1 or Windows 7, Sadly I had to order it through UPS, and it's so confusing to get it re-shipped (since I missed it due to being in hospital the day it was delivered), and now I have to wait 2 working days (so Tuesday or Wednesday) despite the UPS Collection Point being litterally just a mile away, walking distance from me really. And I'm going to a Shawn Mendes Concert tonight
  36. I was thinking this, too! Also, S09:E01+E02 - The Beginning of the End Spoilers
  37. As one negative about some of the writing, pacing was rushed but that is typical in these 2 parters. Also the “happens off screen” bits were a little overdone. I understood why they went that route. Now that I’m thinking about it the Grogar introduction and putting together a team might have been a better placement at the end of Season 8 as a teaser.

    Oh Celestia, after 4 years I finally got back into ponies! Watched 4 first episodes of season 5 on Netflix now and I gotta say, that this service is quite convenient (nice skip intro button is an interesting detail tbh). That's a shame there are only 6 seasons at the moment. Anyway, I plan to watch at least 2 episodes per day. That way, I should be able to catch up with the show in less than 2 months. It's a shame it took me all these years to get into it. Truth be told, I stopped watching ponies since I started working on my projects. It's not that I lost interest or didn't have time. I... I just had stuff planned more or less, but now it is safe to say, that I have failed everywhere, where possible. Now I need to rearrange priorities and do what I can before it will be too late... I feel bad, I'm disappointed in myself, I won't lie, but at least I'll try to catch up with the show. That's what I'll be focusing on now. Wish me luck. On a side note, @Usager has made an awesome artwork of my OC, Twisted Nightmare (idk if that will be his name, but that's how I called him the first time). It was totally unexpected; I love this; Thank you! And with that wall of text, I'm going to sleep. Goodnight!

  44. I adore TCE but you are absolutely right about Sombra. We saw shades of his intelligence back in season 3 and it was fully realized here! I'm so hoping he comes back later on.
  45. SPOILER ALERT: So I got to see this amazing MLP opener. I really liked the idea of a villain team up and Grogar looked so cool design wise. It cracked me up to see Crystalis going insane. It was also funny to see all the self aware jokes about Celestia and Luna not doing anything. I’m intrigued to see what happens now that the Tree Of Harmony is believed to be dead. I still think Twilight’s castle which was grown from the tree of harmony and the roots under the school will become the replacement tree of harmony so I don’t think its magic is totally gone. That’s just a fan theory though. I completely related to Twilight’s feelings in this episode. Although I’m not about to become the ruler of anything I have taken on more responsibility and people now look to me as someone who knows how to lead but I still feel like I’m not ready either. I liked that Discord got to be part of the story and the scene with him was incredibly touching especially when Fluttershy thought he died and then he encourages them,Fluttershy’s tears broke my heart for a moment, but I was pissed that Discord was faking because I have been in the position that Fluttershy was in that scene and I would have been fuming mad if my friend faked it. However it does make perfect sense for Discord’s character! I was a little disappointed like Discord that Twilight didn’t take the throne in this episode but I’m glad Celestia and Luna are letting Twilight ease into a more intense role and I hope that they will still assist after Twilight takes full power. My only other issue was that the episode seemed a little too fast paced with a lot of dense info.

    Well ponies, hopefully this phone problem or whatever it might be will fix itself come morning. For now, this pony is plumb tuckered. Goodnight to you all. (Just 12 hours until the season premiere EEEE!!)
