  1. A new season means new characters and that means new fan clubs! So why not have one about the adorable little Changeling Ocellus? I mean, what's not to love about her? She's adorable, shy, a huge bookworm, and did I mention adorable?
  2. So I'd like a little help with Chima here and the head canons surrounding her, just to make sure I tied up any loose ends you know? Specific questions at the bottom of the post. My current favorite is my ponysona/self insert to my version of the canon. Think copying a google doc and adding your own stuff to it. She's more of a fun exercise with my creative abilities and pushing the limits of the lore we're given then anything else. Name: Chima Species: Changeling (Heir) Gender: Female Age: A thousand moons give or take (as an egg)/ barely a year Cuite Mark: Seed of Harmony Some of the species and their effects on her: (these are found when she meets the Young 6 who work these out by appearance alone. It can be assumed there are traits from other creatures, but these are the most notable) Dragon: The horns on her wings and by her ears as well as her stomach plating and tail. She also has the two small horns by her main one and the dragon magic in them makes her spells natural firey. She is immune to fire in the sense that it will not burn her. That said she still feels discomfort (sweating, dizziness, etc.) and famable parts of her will catch on fire, it just tends to go out quickly and won't burn anything away. Griffon: Her front legs are normal horse legs until you get to her plaws. They're like normal cat paws, if the dew claw was a talon. She can pick things up, but any thing requiring fine motor skills is a no go. Her wings are also longer and sharper like a griffon's. Hippogriff: All those long feathers on her wings, back legs, sides of her face and tail. She has difficultly flying because of them, and she mostly just uses her wings to glide and as a boost. Kirin: Kirin horn, tail hair and ears (with feathers at the tips). She can transform into a Nirik and when she does her feathers take on a more blue tone and her hair/fur takes on a more pink one. Pony: Her horn is curved back and thin like an oriental pony (Mistmane's people) and her mane is like a normal pony's. She also has crystal pony traits only show when she is in in the Crystal Empire. When in the borders of the empire she assumes a crystal from no matter what she shifts into Changeling: Despite her looks and abilities, she is a changeling, and has all the abilities of one. She can shape-shift, and feeds on love. She has a thin frame like most changelings, but her feathers and fur make her seem bulkier. Her irises and pupils are typical to a changeling, but much like with Chrysalis, they don't take up the whole eye. Nonspecific Traits: (the young 6 weren't sure where they came from) Her coat: When the young 6 find her they at first conclude she doesn't have any yak traits but Yona objects. She mentions that while Chima's coat is short like a pony's, it's much softer and thicker than all of their's except hers. Cloud Walking: They do quick tests to try and find some less obvious traits and find that she can walk on clouds. Not really a surprise given that most winged creatures are shown being able to do this, they just aren't sure which creature it's from. Personality/FunFacts: -She's shy at first but very eager to learn about everything she can. When shes meets new ponies she's very nervous about the impression she makes but is happy and carefree around the Young 6. -She fears becoming like Chrysalis and doesn't forgive what she did but she still feels love for her mother. She considers both the Spirit and Chrysalis to be her mothers. -Quite clumsy and very apologetic about it. Her tail and wings knock over a lot and when they do she'll curl up into a little ball and hide. -She loves to swim but is very slow and has to set her self on fire to dry in a timely manner. -Because of her thick coat and feathers she prefers the cold even if she can withstand high heat. -Her writing is attrocious. She can't quite get the hang of mouth writing and her tendency to set anything she uses magic on alight makes levitation a no go. She usually just uses her plaws as best she can. ------ So it all starts with my head canon on how changelings survive off love. Basically if friendship is magic, and love is a big part of friendship then love magic must be a thing. I'd say this is supported by a lot of episodes with the changelings in which love does actually manifest magic or make it stronger. So love is an actual type of magic and changelings siphon it from creatures they trick to take back to Queen Chrysalis, who then divides it between the rest of the hive. Because they are giving another creature's love, this doesn't count towards reform. I also think that this is how they maintain their ability to shape-shift. All creatures presumably have a slightly different kind of magic, like a magical fingerprint, and if this is in the love magic it's not unreasonable to say that this diverse range of magic allows changelings to mimic other creatures forms. In a sense, if that creature can love, then changelings can and probably have stolen that love at some point. So what if the exposure to this in their eggs is what gives them that power? What if direct love from another creature, and not the love filtered through grown changelings, could permanently affect the physical form of one still in the egg? When the changelings were first brought into the world I like to believe they weren't intentionally malicious. I assumed that they merely realized they needed love to survive and so giving love was too much of a risk. They wouldn't know right away that love wasn't a finite resource or that they could create it themselves, so their selfish nature came out of fear more than anything else. I mean Chrysalis has stated openly on more than one occasion that it is her duty to protect and feed the hive and that's why she's after Equestria. She snapped when they were all reformed but up to that point it was all about the benefit of her subjects. So I think that way back when, a Chrysalis who loved her people, even if she never gave that love out (If she gave all her love she could run out and starve, then who would protect them?), decided she needed an heir. Someone with her power she could raise to help protect her people or even help lead infiltration on a larger scale. We see how the old changelings are clearly incompetent on their own and the Canterlot invasion required her to leave the hive vulnerable to attack. She selected one of the normal eggs and began to feed it personally. She gave it larger portions of both love and normal magic even going so far as to cast spells onto it. There were probably changelings specifically charged with distributing love among the hatch-lings so they would grow, and this transfer of love from changeling to Chrysalis to changeling to egg (or maybe even more steps) might have helped filter out some of the species specific magic and prevent changelings from taking on traits in their actual form. Now while receiving the less filtered magic did have some effect on Chima I'm not saying that was the source of such extreme differences. That comes from Chrysalis's screw up. So, much in the ways that bees feed a different kind of honey to larvae that will become a new queen, Chrysalis was giving a different kind of magic to Chima, who she had named Sarynxis. Along with just straight up power magic and stolen love magic, she was also receiving the smallest bits of love magic unbeknownst to Chrysalis. Again, I don't believe she is expressly evil at this point, just incredibly focused on the protection of her people at any cost. If she had remained in the Changeling Hive I head canon that the metamorphosis would have happened before any major pony-changeling conflict. What happened instead was that Chrysalis began pouring way too much magic and the little barely formed changeling inside couldn't contain it letting the excess leak out wildly. I mean if a young unicorn can't control their magic how would a Egg? This manifested mainly in the egg repeatedly teleporting itself and other changelings, a fact that Chrysalis disregarded as harmless. Only one changeling, the one tasked with overseeing all of the egg care and a special talent for connecting to the eggs themselves spoke up. She warned the queen that the heir couldn't contain the magic and that she should focus on giving her enough love to hatch, but by this point it was too late. Even though Chrysalis listened and stopped casting spells not all the magic had leaked out. It was at this time that Changelings began coming in with more love than ever before. They had found Equestria and the abundance of love that came with it. Unfortunately for the heir, this love magic came with far more power magic attached that only served to push the Egg's capacity closer to the limit. The straw to break the camel's back was when one particular changeling had managed to trick Celestia into believing she was dreaming about her sister returning. The amount of love he gained was immense and upon his return Chrysalis fed it all to Chima, hoping this would be enough to hatch her. It didn't but the residual magic was enough to spark a burst so powerful that the Egg was teleported far from the Changeling hive, leaving no trace. Chrysalis couldn't sense her, The hatching managers couldn't sense her, not even the one who warned Chrysalis could sense her, and every party sent to find her failed. Chrysalis was furious and in that rage blamed every creature in sight, herself (even if she would never admit to it), the Changeling who brought the magic (he was banished) the hatching managers (all banished save for the one who warned her, she kept her in case she was able to sense the egg again) and most of all, Equestria. Her desire for revenge crossed with the clear gold mine of love that Equestria was lead her to launch her first attack on the kingdom, and then normal chronology follows. As for Chima, the burst of magic was enough to teleport her from land to land not just once but multiple times. Her egg was strange and unnerving, but in each place there was some creature that decided to pull her out of the cold and see what happened. These acts of love weren't enough to help her hatch, as an heir needed far more love than a normal changeling, but it did have a unique effect. As Chima was still in her earliest developmental stage, the direct, willingly shared love from the many different species heavily affected her form. This is where we see the mashup of traits. Her time on Mt. Aris gave her the longer feathers, her time with the Kirin gave her her Nirik form and horn, the time in the Dragonlands permanently changed how her magic works and so on and so forth. She still maintains her ability to shapeshift as a changeling and her increased power as an Heir but the thousand or so moons spent receiving direct love from so many species overwhelms the few she spent in the Hive. Somewhere along the line she pops into Ponyville, with the magic is running out and her getting closer to hatching. Deep in the Everfree forest, the spirit of Harmony notices this and uses it's power to direct her next teleportation to the tree. The spirit sees her need for care along with her potential destiny but also realizes the likely hood that she will not be protected should the ponies find her, given all the Chrysalis has done, and resolves to hatch her itself. Through this she forms a connection to the tree, seeing it's true from (head canon related to a species I made, not really relevant here) and learning how to understand ponish. As she is still in her egg, she's too young to learn anything complex so the Spirit mostly just communicates feelings of love and care to her. She hatches and remains by the tree's side. (I mean no one ever, and I mean EVER looks behind that thing). As an Heir the length of her life stages are another thing that varies greatly from changeling drones, with heirs spending more time as eggs and advancing to the age of the CMC/Young 6 within a matter of days. Avoiding spoilers she is eventually found by the Young 6, and Ocellus is the only one able to communicate with her. This is another head canon of mine; that changelings are born able to speak a language of hisses and such but must be taught ponish. Chima can understand and think in ponish, but cannot speak it, at least not at first. The Young 6 are told by the tree to only introduce her to the princesses and other ponies if they really believe she will be safe and so they agree to keep her in the forest until they think out a plan. She got her cutie-mark when the tree did the thing (the first one) and represents her destiny; to join the young 6 and truly unite the many species and kingdoms of Equestria, she is essentially a walking seed of harmony that will grow off the magic of the elements that manifests through the Young 6 to become what the tree was. In my personal universe she catalyses Chrysalis's reform but that requires a lot of S9 spoilers and is still very work in progress ------ So here's what I need help with; -Are there any lore points I'm directly contradicting? Especially with my head canons because those are integral to making her work. -Are there any things I'm missing? Like is there something that my head canons fails to explain or gaps it fails to fill? -Any ideas for her character? Other species that could come through in her personality or actions? Ponies she would get along with or dislike/fear? -Where should I post her, if anywhere? I understand that it's highly unlikely anyone will allow her in a role play regardless of how much I insist she won't be a power play, but does that mean I can't submit her to the Character sheets?
  3. Don't mind the fact that some of these are sideways. Also don't mind the fact that these were drawn using pencil and paper. The other spoiler contains everything drawn using my primary art style.
  4. Hi everyone. Welcome to the Thorax fan club, the rules are as follows: No bad language (no swearing, cursing) No bullying (no badmouthing any other forum members, let's all be friends here) NEVER post naughty/NSFW images (please keep this fan club clean for all ages) That being said, have fun! Warning: he's too cute X3
  5. After attending BronyCon for my third time, and hearing the big news at the end of the closing ceremony, I decided to finally put some effort into creating an OC. I'm hoping to create one who represents myself, and go to the final BronyCon in cosplay (part of what I'm doing to help make it the best one ever), so I'm getting a jump on it right away. I've decided on a reformed changeling for a variety of reasons. For one thing, I have no idea what my cutie mark would be if I made a pony OC; while I have some accomplishments, I don't feel that I've done anything that would cause a cutie mark to appear, and don't identify with any special talent or skill in particular. So, a little bit about my OC's personality. He's introverted, and while he enjoys being social, he's often very quiet unless he's around people he knows, and needs time alone to recharge after socializing (which can be quite challenging in the hive). He often changes into different personas to avoid interaction in public spaces when he feels anxiety, which is one way he finds time to be alone. He only reveals his true form when he's around friends and family in a comfortable situation. Even though he may come off as antisocial at times, he enjoys sharing the things he loves with others, and getting free of Queen Chrysalis' reign was a great relief to him. Since becoming reformed, he has grown interested in pursuing needlework and creating clothes and plush toys to express himself. I'd like him to be more of a slice of life character than one who's involved in a larger, epic story, and I'm looking for some input from the community so that I can really create a compelling character. One of the biggest things I have to decide on right now is a name. It's tempting to call him Draxon, mostly for simplicity's sake, but also because I identify most strongly with that name, but I'm open to other suggestions. Canon changelings are named for insect parts, species of plants, or in the case of Kevin, just have regular names, so I think there's a lot of room for creativity. I'll also have to come up with a color combination for his appearance, but I think that'll mostly come down to experimentation. If you have suggestions for a name or on ways I can improve upon my character, please jump in! Thanx!
  6. Link to OOC @Maple Bat As Will Guide the Disney-loving Unicorn awaited for Maple Bat and Woodland Orchestra to arrive, he once again mentally spoke to the Changeling soul within him. Are you sure you want to do this? You know that not everypony has accepted that most of the Changelings race has turned good. Yes. You've been my sleeping spell coffin for too long! It's time I stop hiding! Okay, but it won't be easy! Let's do this!
  7. I'm starting on a new fic, involving a male changeling, when I realized I have no idea how changeling naming works. The only name we know is Chrysalis, so should I go with an insect based naming theme?
  8. Hi everyone. Welcome to the Pharynx fan club, the rules are as follows: No bad language (no swearing, cursing) No bullying (no badmouthing any other forum members, let's all be friends here) NEVER post naughty/NSFW images (please keep this fan club clean for all ages) Have fun!!! X3
  9. Link to RP Okay, @Maple Bat, I'll get us started on this. Although, I'm starting with Unicorn Will Guide already acquainted with your OC's. And he already knows about his inner Changeling side. He begins asking if his Changeling side is ready to come out!
  10. So just a little spoiler alert for those who aren't aware, it seem after seeing this picture, it look like S8 is happening. But not only that, looks to me there will be a school of friendship?? And a female changeling?? how is that possible? There's also a new merchandise as well corresponded to this. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075LNDN4D/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1505305651&sr=1-5588&keywords=my+little+pony&refinements=p_n_availability:1248837011,p_89:My+Little+Pony|Hasbro|My+Little+Pony+Equestria+Girls&linkCode=sl1&tag=alabmlme-20&linkId=decd195ae8921c9c493b6c04824e08ca https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075LDHMFP/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1505306592&sr=1-5606&keywords=my+little+pony&refinements=p_n_availability:1248837011,p_89:My+Little+Pony|Hasbro|My+Little+Pony+Equestria+Girls&linkCode=sl1&tag=alabmlme-20&linkId=57fa55f29d63508fc5f6532d4bbd9adf What do you guys think of this?
  11. You know, I have no idea what the big deal is about these 'ask' threads, so why not start one? So, feel free to ask me anything from life in a black shell hive, to neuro surgery, to those pesky elements that leave me uncertain after the last season about who actually claims the title as holders. Doesn't mean I'll be able to give you a good answer... XD
  12. How would you describe Pharynx's personality in his original changeling form vs his new reformed personality? We mainly only see his former personality, but what do you think changed or stayed the same, personality wise, after his acceptance of love and friendship?
  13. *Deep Exhale* As the title suggests, I am NOT doing this of my own free will. It was either join this foreign exchange thing or sit in on an agonizing session of a feelings circle. (*Thorax in Background - It's a feelings forum!) Whatever! The point is, to get my younger brother off my back and to embrace my new reformed self, I'm willing to answer a few questions. Um, so I guess that's it then. (*Turns to Thorax - There. You happy? Now buzz off and find a feeling's circle to join or something. I can't do this if you're hovering over me.) (*Thorax: Okay. Again, Feelings...FORUM!!!) THORAX!!!
  14. Ever since the Season 6 finale it seems the show has purposely tried to get rid of these dark hole-filled changeling designs, and after "To Change a Changeling" even the outlier, Pharnyx changed to the new design (albeit a little darker than the others) But here's something I noticed: Unlike the changelings in the Season 6 where it seemed after seeing Thorax change into his new form, they just went "Oh yeah lets transform that sounds awesome" almost like it was their choice. However in the episode Pharnyx expresses his love for the hive and they return their appreciation for him and then he transforms. There was no pressure from them saying they'll only appreciate him if he changes form, they were ready to accept him as he was. So that raises the idea. I don't it's that the show wants to say a changeling can't look like the old design and be loved, because once a changeling is loved they physically can't keep the old design and naturally evolve. Long story short it's not Conformity, it's Evolution.
  15. I can wait no more. All my expectations I remember at season 6 episode 26; why did Queen Chrysalis reject Starlight Glimmer's hoof? I was really expecting to see her reformed. I have seen some fan arts about her reformed version but it would be amazing to see an official version of her reformed. I can't wait anymore, please My Little Pony, reform her too. xD Look what happened to King Thorax, he was way different when he reformed and the other reformed changelings, so just imagine how pretty would Queen Chrysalis be. A beautiful fan art example:
  16. So, Thorax instantly changed in character once he transformed, like the other changelings, and suddenly was the biggest changeling in the room (the "room" had no roof btw) and the changelings accepted him as a leader. He also started looking really confident and relaxed from then on. He transformed from the all-shy little changeling to the big confident-looking changeling in no time and seems to accept his duty. I would like to know, what you think about that. What's your opinion? Do you have a theory? Or an explaination that justifies his change? I would really like to know!
  17. The land, which was previously occupied by Queen Chrysalis has now been cleansed by the love shared by Thorax and the rest of the inhabitants of the old changeling hive. Lades and Gentlecolts, I give you…The Reformed Land. This piece is in an Asian style, my first time ever doing this style. I'd like some critique on it please. Note this is a completed track. https://pony.fm/tracks/24699-the-reformed-land
  18. I have always respected Queen Chrysalis as a character, and as an antagonist. She's clever, manipulative, and before the season 6 finale, she had a complete army behind her. Just like Cadence, she was design to be a perfect ruler, to depend on love. She's Cadence's perfect shadow, obscure and terrifying. But the thing that calls my attention, is that she's in fact a mother. She has lost her reign, her subjects and her childrens. She's alone, and all she has known is now a reflection of treason. That's why it hurts me a little when she loses it all. At the same time, I can only wonder if she's capable of raise a whole new swarm by her own, or if she needs some, *cough*, partner. Equestrian biology is something I would take in college for sure. And this is not a surprise, we'll have a Chrysalis episode in season 7. It would surely surprise me if they forget about her for a whole season, haha. Please don't, Hasbro. We need either a revenge or a redemption episode. Twitter! deviantArt!
  19. Queen Chrysalis couldn't have laid all those eggs on her own. Who did she mate with?
  20. Since everyone is talking about changelings right now, I have a small concern about them. In To Where and Back Again, every changeling in the throne room agreed with Starlight's idea of sharing love. I mean it wouldn't be so bad if there were some changelings that disagreed with her, and only half the changelings decided to take the good path. I know it wasn't shown in that episode, but could there be other changelings that decided to stay loyal to Chrysalis?
  21. Since we now know that changelings (sorta) reproduce asexually, that raised a good question to me. Do they have a gender? Or do they technically don't have a gender since they come from eggs and some like Chrysalis sexually identify themselves as either male or female?
  22. "Hello, I am Void Crawler, the old leading Commander drone in the Miasma Hive of Las Pegasus, and I would really like to receive your questions, and not devour your emotions... Not at all..."
  23. Ever wonder how changelings work? Ever had your headcanons about how? Want your information and other's to be mixed and merged into one big study? Here's the thread for you! Here we discuss changeling biology, society, history and other topics having to do with changelings! Discuss below all about changelings, how you think they work, and what their society would be like.
  24. https://mlpforums.com/page/roleplay-characters/_/void-crawler-r7169 This OC here, is my favourite OC in my huge arsenal, and also my oldest OC that I frequently use on all forms of social media. He has been called well done before in the past, but a page overhaul may have ruined this, I would like some help on if he needs changes, minor or large or not and if he is still a unique OC who isn't over the top. Thanks for reading even if you don't reply /)^3^(\
  25. Greg the changeling... changing. I've uploaded the same image on DeviantArt and Tumblr, but I figured I'd toss it up here too.
