    Sonata Dusk Fan Club

    So, here I am, just jammin' out to some Sponge at my computer and I check out a Skype group I'm in to see my friend @FadedSkies talking about this Equestria Girl who was actually pretty. My first thought was "An EQG that doesn't look like it's straight outta Planet 9? Dis fool be trippin' " but when I saw the character herself, I was actually pleasantly surprised. Seriously, she's kinda cute. Not quite waifu material, but she's pretty gr8. I don't know anything about her other than A.) She's not Rarity and B.) She's got a great character design for an EQG. Oh, and C.) She's going to be in the upcoming Rainbow Rocks film as a member of the Dazzlings Rules of this thread copy/pasted lel -No spamming post to become biggest fans even though this rule is redundant because that's what people do anyway -This is a children’s show, and believe it or not there are younger people who go on these forums and make up a large amount of the population, please limit content to suggestive only unfortunately...well, maybe not, since she just proves that even a weird alien life form can look cute. For example you may post a picture of two ponies kissing do it, but they cannot be doing anything inappropriate aw shucks, or showing things inappropriat. -Do not post a picture of Applejack in the Rainbow Dash fan club, because Applejack belongs in the Applejack fan club.

I made this, now peace.

    Chewing Tobacco Appreciation Thread

    I know this will probably get little to no responses, but there's nothing to do with chew here on these forums, dammit. I dip because of the stress relief it provides without having to face the ill effects that smoking can have on your heart and lungs; dipping is only bad for your mouth I don't care how many responses this topic gets; at least there'll be one for the finer way to get tobacco on here I got 5 cans for Christmas, and I'm midway through Can #3

    Mjölna Fan Club

    Hub Welcome to the Mjölna Fan Club! There are quite a few popular background ponies in this fandom, no doubt - whether it be Derpy or Vinyl or Octavia, whoever - that is fact. However, there are also some overlooked background ponies as well, such as this sweg pony with an umlaut in her name and a Thor hammer in her cutie mark! While she is a lesser known background pony, Mjölna has a handful of canon appearances, listed here: That means S2E15, S4E12, S4E20, and S4E22 are all episodes that feature this viking pony of pure swegitude As a background character, it is easy to over look her - personally, I feel as if she could be quite popular if she had a consistent cutie mark, and I like to think of her canon cutie mark as being the thor hammer one. In of itself, I fully expect this to rival the Rarity Fan Club not get too many posts, but maybe there's more Mjölna fans out there, or maybe some might find a new fave BG pony because of this Mjölna FTW! Rules that are in every single Fan Club thread fathomable, copy/pasted from the RFC: Rules of this thread -No spamming post to become biggest fans -This is a children’s show, and believe it or not there are younger people who go on these forums, please limit content to suggestive only.

  4. I like to call Rarity "Rares" or "Princess Marshmallow Jewel Butt" sometimes I don't know how I came up with the last one, past she's my princess who has the same color as a marshmallow and has 3 jewels on her butt So, as the topic title asks, do you have any nicknames for your best pony? And, if so, what are they?

    The "We miss you Ghostfacekiller39" thread!

    I agree, actually - except for the idolization and movement part. I don't see anything of that sort in this thread as much as a thread just saying "I miss this guy, does anyone else?" It was a very nice sentiment on behalf of the OP, but I don't really deserve any kind of special attention of any sorts. I'm not necessarily a profound member, and likely all anybody remembers me for is always bickering with the staff/with someone about Rarity. That's fine and all, but I'm not really much special. Someone should just make a "lost members" thread or something, if it doesn't already exist, if they want to remember ded folk like me. -hugs- :grin2: My steam link is on my profile, so hit me up there and add me. I did a cleaning out a while back of people who I didn't ever have any communication with, and I've never been good at one on one conversations with people, but if you want to add me and chat sometime then I'll be happy to.

    The "We miss you Ghostfacekiller39" thread!

    I miss that handsome son of a bitch too.
  7. Topic title is pretty self explanatory, and I couldn't find a topic like this so I decided to boot one up on my own Anyway, here's my list Reasons are preferred, but optional! Here's a template, if you want to use it Rarity - MLB - NHL - NFL - NBA - Applejack - MLB - NHL - NFL - NBA - Twilight Sparkle - MLB - NHL - NFL - NBA - Fluttershy - MLB - NHL - NFL - NBA - Pinkie Pie - MLB - NHL - NFL - NBA - Rainbow Dash - MLB - NHL - NFL - NBA - Well, that's pretty much it! I don't know why I decided to go with that vector, it's certainly a questionable choice. I regret nothing.
  8. Article: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2015/02/comics-and-show-to-remain-separate-canon.html The director of the FiM Television series recently came out to say that the comics and the show canon are to remain separate - as in, they're both canon in the same universe, so the comics don't apply to the show. This basically reduces the comics to being Hasbro approved fanfiction, but all in all the events in the comics have no impact on the show itself, nor what happens in it. My personal take on this is that it's a good thing for the show, as I feel the comics have struggled to maintain consistency with the show numerous times throughout their arcs and honestly, I haven't really liked many of the comics I've read, with the only ones I've enjoyed thus far being the "Return of Chrysalis" arc, the Rarity micro, the Rainbow Dash and Trixie Friends Forever and the Rarity and Applejack Friends Forever. While I've heard the Babs Seed and Rarity one to be rather good, I haven't read it yet myself. Regardless, the comics have always struck me as being a bit inconsistent and lower in quality in comparison to the show. That's just my personal opinion, however, and I base it on how I prefer character driven, slice of life stuff to actiony fanservicy stuff. From what I can tell, the comics are really hit or miss, but that's especially true with characterization. If those sorts of problems with characterization were introduced into the show's canon, then I think that'd create problems for the show's writing staff having to follow an inconsistent second medium and thus lowering the quality of the show itself. Hey, this is just my personal take on it, though. What are your opinions on this breakthrough in the FiM universe? Discuss! EDIT: Edited the title for clarification's sake

    I just don't really like it when I think something fails to look at a subject from a global point of view and confines it to a nationalistic point of view. Holds everyone back as a whole, in my opinion, because we fail to see things from the perspective of others. That's a pretty big deal to me, honestly, because I feel that nationalism - regardless of what type of government ideology is being used - is something that holds almost the whole world back.

    S05:E01+02 - The Cutie Map

    Of course not, but that doesn't mean that I agree with it, and I can't really understand why it deserves it at the moment

    S05:E01+02 - The Cutie Map

    Hmm...then I guess it is an accurate representation of what it can lead to, but it never specified that's the way it had to be and made no attempt to even imply as much, so I can't say I agree with the execution entirely - I still get the impression that Communism could be a great thing if not for people like Starlight Glimmer, but it's people like her that make it like that. I will take that into consideration when I begin to perform an actual analysis of the episode, though, instead of just my initial thoughts. Thanks for the feedback, man.

    S05:E01+02 - The Cutie Map

    The fact that she used it so easily to her advantage to exercise total control and gain power as many leaders under a communist government have done in the past immediately comes to mind. The way it was portrayed as being inherently a bad thing instead of a good thing also comes to mind. Upon seeing the character and the synopsis of what it was about, people instantly drew lines to communism, man. Maybe you can offer me a line of reasoning that proves it wasn't? Furthermore, even if it wasn't, then I can't say I agree with the execution of the concept it was trying to push because of the implications of it. The writers need to be careful of what they put out there, because if this was communism then it offered a narrow-minded look at the ideology from a nationalistic "we're right and it's wrong" kind of view instead of from a global point of view, which still could've been executed in this very episode without changing the ending, the villain, or anything major about the plot because of the way Starlight Glimmer was executed as a villain, which I would say she was the best villain since Discord or Chrysalis. She could've very well been a Stalin-type individual who used the breaches of an equal society to create a dictatorship. Sadly, though, it tried to take a different approach to it and made everyone miserable and brainwashed, which often isn't the case and just struck me as promoting capitalist nationalism - and I myself believe in a capitlist society, I just really hate it when things refuse to look at a subject of this nature from a global point of view. I can see where some are coming from with the philosophical setbacks of equality, though, instead of the political setbacks. I can see that angle and see it as a valid one. I still can't forgive this episode if it ends up being the case, though, because the writer should've been so much more careful with what he was implying than he actually was - the best rating I'd offer the episode is a 6/10, and that's under the assumption it's from a philosophical standpoint as opposed to a political one, but the sloppy execution holds back what would otherwise be a great morale. I'm sorry, but I don't know what else I have to prove, honestly.

    S05:E01+02 - The Cutie Map

    Of course it isn't, but that doesn't mean it has an incapability to reference things in the real world to prove a point, especially when it's done as subtlety as it was there. Furthermore, just because it like that in certain parts of the real world doesn't automatically mean that it isn't like that in Equestria. It's certainly a possibility, and when there's such strong communist undertones coming from Starlight Glimmer's village as well as her being referenced as an Eastern Unicorn, when communism was historically strongest in the eastern part of the globe in the real world, then it's really, really hard for me not to draw that connection.
  14. ghostfacekiller39

    S05:E01+02 - The Cutie Map

    If that was the case, then it should've been executed in a way that couldn't be so easily connected with strong political undertones. The writer really should've watched his implications if that's what he was going for, and he clearly didn't. Therefore I can't really forgive this flaw even if it was proved to be what you claim it to be and my initial thoughts were wrong.

    S05:E01+02 - The Cutie Map

    I didn't like it, honestly. I don't expect the show to have Shakespearean levels of writing, but when it comes off as being nothing more than nationalistic, then it's going to irk me. Communism, at its core, is a good thing. It's just easy to take advantage of and create a situation like the one that was seen in that village. If they had portrayed the villagers as being more than miserable, mindless followers and actually seemed devoted to the cause, and it was Starlight Glimmer just taking advantage of the otherwise good idealism she created, then it wouldn't bother me so much. It wasn't really an accurate representation of a political ideology, and its one that westerners are generally opposed to at that. I see this and I feel like it's trying to force feed right and wrong, and the fact that it did so without any sense of subtlety really annoyed me. I hear many claim that it wasn't going for that. Even if it wasn't, all I could think of when I watched it was Communism vs. Capitalism. You need to be careful with what you're getting across to the viewer, as things like this can end up looking like something entirely different. I couldn't get those representations out of my mind, especially when they referenced it taking place in the eastern part of Equestria. If you're going to do a thing with a political message, please be subtle about it and don't portray one as inherently right and one as inherently wrong, unless it actually is inherently wrong, like fascism or so. So basically, If they weren't doing Communism vs. Capitalism, then they really fooled me quite well and I'll still hold it against this episode due to the clumsy and misleading execution of what they were going for, but it won't hurt my opinion of the episode as much. I'm seeing praise for it everywhere I look, but I found it to be kind of annoying with how it felt like it was going up on a soapbox to preach a political message. Maybe it's just because I like the show for being lighthearted and fun instead of one that uses metaphors to portray a political message, though. Of course, that's not to say its without its positives. I really thought the villain, Starlight Glimmer, was quite effective, for one. I also really liked it when she interrupted Twilight's little soapbox schpiel about friendship xP That was amusing. I also really liked the conflict it presented Fluttershy with - it was either cause innocent people to suffer or put her friends plan into ruination. I liked that moral dilemma quite a bit. Found it rather gripping, honestly. Lastly, the chase scene at the end was very exciting and I liked how it didn't fall back on Twilight, or even the mane 6 for that matter, to save the day, but instead it allowed the people Starlight Glimmer had made suffer the longest exact vengeance. Really liked that aspect of the episode. All in all, I'd give it a 6/10 at best and a 3.5 or 4/10 at worst. Probably the same tier as the Crystal Empire, above the Pilot, and below Princess Twilight Sparkle and Return of Harmony. I need to let it sink in a bit more before providing a review that accurately portrays my feelings towards the episode, honestly.

    Holy shit, they actually presented Fluttershy with a good conflict for the first time since S2 ...aaand they blew it.

    S05:E01+02 - The Cutie Map

    I'll be honest, I really don't like what I saw out of the first half. Maybe it gets better in the second half, though. I'll write about it at length later.

    How Bronies should deal with Haters/Trollers

    Not responding is generally preferable if someone argues with you without the intent of having an actual intellectual debate. If someone tries to give you hell for your avatar or something, they more than likely fall into that category.

    Which MLP antagonist would you want to punch?

    I'd punch Gilda solely for using such terrible and dated insults.

  21. Good. I really, really don't want IDW getting any legitimate recognition from the show just because of how much most of their comics suck in terms of characterization of...err, everyone, pretty much. Just the abysmal quality of their writing in general, really. I'd like to use this picture as another example of something that's wrong with the comics and why they shouldn't be brought into the show's canon: I don't like the comics. At all, honestly. I hate them, even. I just want to get that out there. Putting that aside, I see all sorts of off-kilter continuity that doesn't need to fit into the show, fan pandering galore, horrible representations of the show's original characters while putting the comics' original characters in the glory light..hey, look, it's about 90% of all fanfictions everywhere. Just good, honestly. Keep 'em separate for quality's sake.

    Removing One of the Mane 6?

    Anyway, to all the people pointing out the number of votes Rarity has, keep in mind this topic was made in 2012. Things were different back then, and it doesn't really reflect on the fandom's current thoughts anymore - and I would say Rarity would have some votes in the fandom's current state, but I doubt it'd be this many. Just a PSA from your friendly neighborhood ghostie
  23. ghostfacekiller39

    Would you could change the outcome of an episode? How?

    Well, I still can't express a feeling of agreeance with Rarity being the best choice as the on-screen development she received in S4 would be much better than any off-screen development. That and I already came up with a theory of removing one of the mane 6 for an extended period of time that I feel would have more effect on the show as a whole and potentially benefit the entire mane cast as opposed to just one pony Granted, I edited that in far after I made that post, so I'll just quote it here so you can see it
  24. ghostfacekiller39

    Removing One of the Mane 6?

    If I had to choose to remove one and I couldn't say none of them, I feel the only appropriate choice would be to saw my arm off without the use of any medication and then allow myself to bleed out GOOD LUCK GETTING AN ANSWER FROM MY CORPSE
  25. ghostfacekiller39

    Would you could change the outcome of an episode? How?

    I just don't know if that would be the best course of action, honestly, as Season 4 ultimately gave Rarity what many of her fans have deemed to be her best season. Given the large amounts of backlash she once received peaking during the S3 - S4 hiatus as well as the near-absent performance she had in season 3, she really needed a lot of love in Season 4 to appease the fanbase as well as make up for lost time. Maybe at a different time I could agree and say this would be interesting, but given the circumstances Rarity was facing going into Season 4 I'd say she needed the time she received from both the perspective from a fanbase point of view as well as from what her character needed in general Delving into this, actually, if we were to take a main character out of the setting for an extended period of time, why not Twilight? She has reason as new royal duties would be calling her, she was relegated to minor supporting roles in many of her appearances in S4, and she's considered to be the glue that holds the group together. How would the rest respond under those circumstances?
