  1. I'd really like to say no, but I think it does a little, at least on subconscious level. If someone has an actual drawn image of their OC or persona or somesuch for their avatar, then it's pretty easy to make the conclusion they're putting a bit more effort into how they present themselves than someone who's got a seemingly random screenshot for their avatar. It doesn't outweigh the actual content of their post, but it just might make people pay more attention.
  2. I don't really have a favorite color. I just want the eye color to work with the rest of the pony's color scheme.
  3. I think I'd go for 4/5. There are some episodes I don't like, but as a whole, the series is one of my 'happy things'.
  4. The 2010s are only halfway through, so who knows what else might still happen. But yes, I think MLP will at least be remembered. Whether it retains an iconic status through decades to come only history will tell.
  5. I'm sorry, but I really had to pause at this. Because, Twilight Velvet's firstborn, Shining Armor, looks/acts/sounds somewhere round early 20s, maybe? Just for a moment reflect how young Twilight Velvet would have been when she had Shining if she truly was that young. 15? Maybe younger? Sorry, this might be a little cringy, but the point I'm trying to make is that in cartoons you can't really trust the way people look when trying to determine their age. Looking at where the character is in life, both career-wise and in terms of family, might be a more reliable clue.
  6. This. Yes. I consider myself a romantic, but at the same time I get tired of how shipping sometimes seems almost mandatory in any fandom, with how fans draw lines by who ships character X with who. If I like two characters that are good friends in canon, then I'm perfectly fine at leaving it at that.
  7. To be frank, it probably is just a production issue. It's way quicker, and therefore cheaper, to produce just recolors of the same base rather than creating whole new base. And a character that gets maybe five minutes of screentime over several seasons put together probably won't weigh much in the scales when deciding how to budget the time and resources.
  8. I have a wooden rocking horse in the garage attic. I got it on Christmas when I was... I'm not sure how old I was. It's like foot and half high at the seat, but in the photo where I sit on it just after unwrapping it, my feet don't reach the ground. So I was... 2 years? 3?
  9. At one point I played World of Warcraft almost daily, but now I've kinda fallen out of it. I still think of those times fondly. More recently I was completely sucked into Dragon Age: Inquisition. I have a number of different characters I'm still determined to play through.
  10. I'm not really sure, but I might go with 'Pinja'. In my language it means 'pine tree', but it's also a legitimate given name. ... Then again, now that I think about it, my real given name is one letter away from a word that means 'berry' in my language.
  11. My favorite tends to vary from episode to episode, but currently I'm into Twilight Sparkle, so... I'd say the worst part of her is how she is as intelligent as they come, but a lot of the time she has absolute zero common sense. She thinks all the answers are in her books. Like the sleepover episode, where a tree fell through her window and she was looking into her manual for what to do.
  12. Hummm... Well, in Mercedes Lackey's books there are people who have similar names. I haven't read too many of her books, but these tribal people are in a notable role at least in the Owl Mage trilogy. Then there's the Warrior Cats series, where most of the characters have nature themed names like Echosong and Thistlepaw. If you're into comics, Wendy and Richard Pini's comic series Elfquest centers around the Wolfriders tribe that has names like Skywise, Clearbrook and Dewshine in the cast. Those are what I can recall off the top of my head.
  13. Ee-yup, I see a lot of working wisdom in this answer. I've dabbled in writing myself, and sometimes it's special kind of torture just to get two characters to interact in a realistic way while also moving towards the end result you want AND keeping them true to their own character. Let alone three. It's not so much that people are against polyamory, it's just not the first idea that pops into mind because it's not common in our culture. We are taught since cradle that the ideal relationship is one where two people are completely devoted to one another, so it's no reason to be ashamed if the idea of polyamory feels strange. And of those writers that might get the idea, many might feel too intimidated to try it, because it's hard to do well.
  14. I speak two languages, but slang tends to go out of style so fast that I usually don't bother learning it in the first place.
