    Does coming to the MLP Forums relive your stress?

    Not really, no. Just come in hope of something interesting.

    Spoiler S08:E25+26 - School Raze

    Okay, now I know Equestrian justice is weird. They put a filly in Tartarus but Trixie walked free after her stunt with the amulet.

    Ice Storm was Lawful Good. It ended up being his downfall.

    [Saddle Arabia] I've Been Through The Desert

    @PathfinderCS Applejack could hear the hurt in Trixie's voice. It was heartbreaking, almost, but there was no other way she could see to get this done. Quickly, she pulled herself to one side of the hole in the hull, then the other as Trixie levitated her, pain from her own shoulder shooting into her chest as she held up a bench plank in order to drive a nail into it with her other hoof, holding it in place. Securely, she hoped. Taking far longer than she thought she should, at least in her mind, she finally managed to get the last plank in, then wove some of the fabric of the balloon into the spaces between the planks. Unwilling to take to much time to look over her handiwork, she simply called, "All right, I think I got it! Put me down!" Just please don't drop me, she thought.

    Animation What happened to anime in the past?

    I think imported anime has sunk to the level of the lowest common denominator of audiences. I'm going to date myself here, but my first experience with imported anime was Space Cruiser Yamato, which aired in North America as Star Blazers. It was unlike any other cartoon I had ever seen as a boy. There was a continuing storyline, not just a plot of evil villain gets thwarted and then a new scheme is hatched next week. Characters had complex motives. The "bad guy" was acting to save his people. And characters (gasp) died! The problem is the perceived need in North America to sanitize life for kids. And while happy stories for children have their place, we shouldn't shy away from the heavy, grey area topics that make a good epic, and indeed, make up life.

    Does MLP still feel like a fantasy world?

    At the end of the day MLP is a cartoon aimed at kids in the U.S. (or, more broadly, at Western countries) and as such has to be relatable to them, including in slang and the like. I do think, however, it's done an admirable job of conveying a recognizable society, yet one where sentient ponies, magic, and fantastic creatures exist. Or example, holidays and life milestones that seem plausible within their world, but we could imagine ourselves celebrating something similar.
  11. Vancouver has only been destroyed when it's been standing in for another city getting destroyed. I've never seen a film where they depicted, or even mentioned, Vancouver getting flattened.

    Why is the Brony Fandom dying?

    It could also be a case of "classic vs. Ronald Moore" scenario. I wasn't thrilled with what I saw prior to the reboot of Battlestar Galactica, but it lasted longer than the original, by far.

    Why is the Brony Fandom dying?

    It's been eight years. Tastes change, things come and go. I think a lot of bronies are still bronies, they may just not interact with others as much. In short, bronies will become animation's equivalent of Trekkies. In the background, but never gone.

    Does/did anyone you know serve in the military?

    Canadian here. Used to live in Victoria, BC, where Canada's primary Pacific naval base is located. My father was an officer in the Navy and a number of my friends either were or still are in the Forces, some of whom saw postings on ships patrolling the Persian Gulf.
