  1. I've been busy the past few days, that's why I haven't been posting often recently. Anyways, I need to do some other things and get to bed, it's been a long day for me and I have many things to do in the morning.

      It's alright, my friend! :kindness: I'm sure everyone understands that!

      Good night! :fluttershy:

    End it in season 10 instead of 9?

    Yes 100%! The more seasons of g4 ponies, the better!

    Season 9 without the School of Friendiship

    I really liked the school of friendship, but I don't want to see it often in season 9. Also, it's very likely that the school won't appear much in season 9, since the main reason why school of friendship showed up in many episodes in season 8 was because it was the overall theme of that season, and in season 9 the theme will most likely be different.

    Positive depiction of masculinity in MLP?

    I wasn't referring to masculinity though, I was just referring to Thorax being capable of defending and providing as a father since I thought you said he wasn't, but perhaps I might have misunderstood your original post.
  5. Season 9 is on its way, and we still don't have a conclusion to Spike and Rarity's relationship! How will it end? I really hope the writers haven't forgot about it, it's been going on since the very first FiM episode!

      I don't expect them to become a canon couple... But it would be nice to see some resolution to it. I've seen several people suggest Spike should get a dragon girlfriend, which I don't think is a bad idea at all. :mustache: I'd prefer it not to be Smolder, though, as their dynamic is more fitting of them being friends (or even siblings, though they're not actually related)

    Movies/TV Star Wars Prequels: How would you have done them?

    I think they are good just the way they are, so I wouldn't change anything.

    Positive depiction of masculinity in MLP?

    What about when Thorax decided to save Spike from a deadly fall off a cliff even though Thorax didn't even know Spike and was his enemy? What about when Thorax defended Spike from Ember? And when Thorax went out to help his brother Pharynx fight the moleworth with only Starlight and Trixie as backup? Thorax isn't even a pacifist judging by his actions, he is only highly reluctant to start any needless conflict, but he is more than willing to defend his friends and family. He is capable of defending and providing, he just only does it when necessary which is what a father should do anyways.

    Positive depiction of masculinity in MLP?

    Sure, masculine traits have their downsides depicted in MLP, but so does many feminine traits and traits that are both masculine and feminine. If you are referring to Discord and Flim and Flam when you said "tyranny" and "bullying", Discord is the spirit of chaos and disharmony and Flim and Flam are business ponies who only care about money. They don't solely depict masculinity in FiM as they also depict other things. Also, Rockhoof's strength is depicted as both useful and harmful. As for Torch, there are also female characters who are stubborn (Spoiled Rich), so it's not a masculine only trait. Since you wanted some examples of males with traditional traits, Shining Armor, Big Mac (as @imawesome mentioned), reformed Pharynx, Bright Mac, Twilight's dad, and Rainbow Dash's dad are excellent examples and they represent masculine traits in a positive way.

    Do we expect to much from FiM now?

    Yes, I also think there are many fans who expect too much from the show. It actually irritates me sometimes, seeing the fans complain or criticize certain things, but it's also true of any other fandom. Look at Star Wars, Disney made "Star Wars: Solo" and it got so much criticism yet I think it's a great movie. I also think the expectations have become higher each season, with fans using the early season as standards for the later seasons.
  10. I just re-watched the season 1 episode "Winter Wrap-up", and I really enjoyed it as always! I also noticed that MLP FiM has really changed over the past few years, the animation and the focus.

    In the early seasons the mane six are the central focus, and in the later seasons the central focus is on multiple ponies. When was the last time we got an episode that didn't have at least one non-mane six as a side-character in it? Not that it's a bad change, I think it's an improvement. If you want to watch only the mane six, watch the early seasons, if you want to watch the mane six + tons of other ponies/creatures, watch the later seasons. I personally prefer to do both.

    Anyways, it's really fun to re-watch episodes no matter how old they are, especially your favorites!

      "Fake It 'til You Make It" is the closest to a Mane 6-only episode from season 8... It does feature Maud and Starlight briefly in the opening, but otherwise it's just the Mane 6 and one-shot characters. As for the last episode to feature only the Mane 6 (or some of them) and Spike, I think that's "P.P.O.V." from season 6. Neither of them particularly highly-rated episodes, so I guess the switch in focus is a good thing in a way! :please:

      The most interesting thing to me is that we've even had a few episodes without any of the Mane 6 in the last couple of seasons, "The Break Up Break Down" being the most recent one (though a couple of them are mentioned by name).

  11. In my opinion, I think it's best for Hasbro to avoid making g5 like g4. Make g5 something new, not a g4 remake or extension. Get rid of any ideas of having the mane six in g5.

    General New Year Resolutions

    I'll just list a few: - get a job - find purpose in my life - stop wasting my life Of course, my "new year resolutions" are simply just everyday resolutions, I have nothing that is solely a new year resolution because I am frequently examining myself and my life and constantly making improvements throughout the year.

    Misunderstood episode(s)?

    I think many episodes as well as the MLP movie have been misunderstood.
  14. It’s been a few days since I posted a status update regarding my life, so I have some important things to say.

    I’m feeling positive again and I'm no longer feeling negative and down. It's because I've gotten a lot of advice, and now I've started to apply it to my own life. It’s also because I stopped letting bad things and problems get me down and discouraged.

    Also, I’m still trying to get a temporary job. While I’m searching though I’ve been taking some free online classes for a career in software engineering, and it’s working out really well for me – still not 100% sure if that’s the career I want, but nothing’s stopping me yet. As for college, I don’t think I will be going back anytime soon yet.

      I'm glad to hear you're feeling better, my friend! :kindness: It never hurts to try and learn new things! :squee: I hope you find a job soon!

      Oh yes, I love to hear good news such as yours. :fluttershy:

      It's really great to hear you've got that sparkle of positive energy and are sticking to it. :mlp_grin: I wish you all the best and hope, that everything goes well for you! :mlp_yeehaa:

    Food What types of cereal do you eat?

    I just eat whatever cereal I can find, usually the ones with lots of sugar and whole grain (that's what most of the cereal out there contain anyways). I don't prefer cereal with raisins though.
