    Favorite animals

    I am surprised this isn't already a topic. What are your favorite animals and why? Mine are foxes and snakes! I find them both fascinating and intelligent animals, and are so pretty and cute too!
  2. In different parts of the world, "daddy longlegs" can refer to at least three animals. The cellar spider, harvestman, or cranefly. These unique arthropods are all very harmless, and can be beneficial as well. Cellar Spiders: These little spiders like to hang out in dark corners and eat small insects. They are a common find in many places. Harvestmen: In the order Opiliones, these tickly arachnids are actually not spiders, as they have one body segment. They are incapable of biting people, and even if they could, they are nonvenomous. These are what I consider daddy long legs. Crane Flies: They may look like huge mosquitoes, but they are harmless and will not bother humans. Unlike the other two, these are insects, having only six legs. Here where I live, I have seen all three listed. However, I only consider harvestmen daddy longlegs. Perhaps some of you may call another animal not listed as one. So what do you consider daddy longlegs to be?
  3. It is one of the most iconic repeated phrases in the show, (there are other similar words like somppony obviously) being a pun for "anyone"/"anybody etc." is clever, but how would it translate in other languages? In English, it is easy to replace "-body" with "-pony," however in other languages it would be morr difficult to have am equivalent it seems to me. I have heard the Japanese version some, and they say "ponitachi"/ "ponytachi" in it, which works very well. Poni is the Japanese loan word based on how it sounds, so it means pony. Tachi is a polite added word to make it plural or rather collective. So pretty much the same, and works just as well for it. Of course not just anypony, but other pony puns would be nice to know. What do you think?
  4. One of my large phobias I had until just a few months ago were spiders and arachnids. I used to be so terrified of them that even the smallest ones made me run and hide in another room. Let's not even talk about the larger ones. Not too long ago, I decided to learn more about them. I eventually decided to pick up some harmless arachnids that I was freaked out by, harvestmen/daddy longlegs: These things scared me the most where I live, and are pretty big, but harmless. I managed to pick one up, and I learned that they weren't that scary at all; they were cute. Pretty much I got over my arachnophobia, and love spiders, often looking at them or holding them. How has anyone else gotten over a phobia?
  5. @Blitz Boom I apologize for not paying in a while, but my activity in this forum is very low right now. I am considering leaving it, as I guess my interest in MLP diminished. So for now, I am considering leaving the roleplay.

    @Blitz Boom "Really? That sounds like a nice and simple way to live. I never would have thought of something like that here, though I'm sure you've had to deal with creatures here. It would also allow one to study such a place better, living in it. It seems like here you would learn a lot." Living in such a beautiful and fascinating place did sound appealing, despite it being located in one of the most feared forests. Foxy never felt as scared of the Everfree as others had, though that could be partly due to her growing up away, and having experiences in a forest herself. Instead of fear Foxy felt curious and exited, though she had her fair share of dangerous encounters too. Still, if it had places like these, it seemed worth it to her. "What are some things you have learned of this forest, Briar?" Foxy asked, hoping to learn more from somepony who had spent a great deal of time living in it. In fact, the Everfree forest was one of the places she was interested in the most, being so mysterious. She grew up around forests yet she still managed to find something new every time, which was the wonder of them. Surely in such a place one could learn a great deal living in it.

    Spoiler Will you watch G5?

    If I'm still into the show, yeah why not? As long as it isn't horrible in my opinion, I would be fine.

    @Blitz Boom Foxy moved slowly around as her eyes adjusted to the darkness, revealing the basic interior. While small, Foxy enjoyed smaller spaces, giving her a feeling of security. Tired, Foxy lay on the floor, gently placing Agni, who had been resting on her, on the ground as well, trying not to disturb her. "What a comfortable place. I assume it provides protection as well, as there are plenty dangers outside. It would be difficult to notice such an area, and I don't think I could find it well myself." Despite being basic, it was closer to nature, which Foxy liked. It was warmer inside, and soon Foxy began to doze off, still fatigued from earlier.

    One thing I dislike.

    Forum games don't count as they are usually low effort, casual posts. It would be really easy to rack up posts by just only using the forum games and such.

    @Blitz Boom Foxy was already halfway across the stream before Briar could finish asking if she needed help. "No thanks, I don't really mind it." Foxy didn't think much of it, as it wasn't the only time she had to cross a river, in fact, she knew how to do so quite well. While she could simply fly over, Foxy had a tendency to act more like an Earth pony, often ignoring her wings' purpose. Sure enough, the area Briar mentioned was covered in plants, making it a tricky task to find the entrance. Foxy slowly put her right hoof of it and felt around for the entrance. It did take a minute, however it wasn't too bad to find. Moving the roots out of the way was another thing, however, and it tired her out. She waited for the others before going inside.

    @Blitz Boom "I am not very social myself, but I love having friends. Perhaps I could work on that... While I'm not as fearful as Brittle, I do shy away quite often... perhaps meeting you was what I needed." Foxy ducked under more branches, trying not to have any touch Agni, though a few leaves would brush off. It wasn't like an ordinary forest, but at the same time it wasn't completely foreign either. Perhaps it was because of her good sense of direction for exploring forests since she was young, but it didn't scare her off, or at least not as much as it scared others off. The daylight was faintly trickling through the trees, making visibility harder. Fortunately Briar could make his way through in his own way, in which Foxy did not fully understand. "So you can tell where things are without seeing them right? Like trees? How far can you 'see' then?" Foxy asked, curious to how Briar navigated without eyes.
  13. There is heavy evidence that a Generation 5 will be out, as the show is already successful, so it likely will still be a thing even then. Perhaps people would leave, but as long as there is interest there will be some people. I can't say how many, but I'm not so sure of it dying.
  14. He has made minor appearances before, but it has been a while. With the way the show is going, it wouldn't be surprising at all. They have reintroduced characters not seen for a few seasons such as Trixie and GIlda.

    Do You No Longer See Ponies as 'Ponies'?

    Well they are more human-like, so I see them like that, but have equine based behavior too.

    @Blitz Boom The reticulation of the branches and roots would make navigation difficult even for Foxy, though luckily she had Briar. As the leaves gradually filtered more and more light out, Foxy began to rely more on Briar's movement to move forward, standing behind Brittle. "Don't worry Brittle, I don't thing he would hurt us," Foxy said after Brittle tried to say something. Foxy wondered of Zhu too, but it was pointless worrying over it. Despite what he had done before, she did feel like he didn't intend to hurt them. "Zecora? I've heard of her, and seen her once or twice, but never talked to her before. I respect her work and knowledge, and meeting her one day would be wonderful. I guess I had been too shy..." Foxy tripped over one of the roots as she spoke, falling hard enough to make her yelp in pain. Luckily she wasn't injured, but such a fall and noise very well could have awakened Agni... or something else.

    Can cutie marks change/evolve?

    As it hasn't been shown before, it is highly unlikely that they do. Besides, they can be talented at other things without one. I don't know about special situations, but changing cutie marks had generally not worked out well in the show.

    @Blitz Boom Foxy nodded and continued on silently, trotting outside of the town. It felt much more calm and quiet, following the path to the forest. Within a few minutes she was at the entrance. She stopped for a moment to wait for Briar, and wondered what was in wait for her. "You can take over now, and I'll try to be careful. Does Brittle become scared of the forest, or is she used to it? I know you are probably familiar with the surrounding areas, but I just want to make sure she's okay." Foxy knew Briar could deal with any problematic creature, but it still seemed risky even for Foxy. It certainly was exciting though. Foxy wondered if Agni had been in the forest before, though she had no idea where she came from. The trees ahead cleared a medium path that could be followed, getting thicker until it was impossible to see ahead. Still waiting at the entrance, Foxy stared on. She couldn't see anything alive inside from where she was, though that was only the entrance. The trees seemed to be differently shaped than normal, giving them the creepy appearance. Not to mention all of the roots off the path that could make it a pain to cross.

  21. Probably, because I don't have good judgement for that and don't really care about what I wear.

    @Blitz Boom Balancing Agni on her head, Foxy continued on. "You alright Briar?" Foxy failed to noticed he had been "bleeding," focusing more on helping him back up. The were only a few minutes away from the town edge by then, with the forest in viewing distance. "Not too far, though I hope you can help me navigate to forest. I've never explored much of it." Foxy was tired by then, but it wasn't too far. She stopped to rest for a minute, checking on Agni. Perhaps flying would have been a more quick solution, but Briar and Brittle lacked the ability, and Foxy wasn't skilled at it, especially with a giant bird on her. She would be surprised if she got off the ground at all.
