  1. Sunset Shimmer: Phoenix Suns
  2. All right; so we've had a decent amount of new characters introduced to us this season. Whether it's the Student 6, the ever popular Autumn Blaze, the patient Hoo'Far, the much-hated Neighsay, or the clinically insane Cozy Glow; season 8 feels actually quite fresh partially thanks to a lot of these new arrivals. Also added a bonus question for the holiday special. So; who was your favorite? My top three were definitely: 1. 2. 3. My honorable mention being: As for the holiday special...well; you know~
  3. Coming over from MLPArena, which is a lot more focused on collecting and real ponies from what I've seen, I've so far only tended to see ponysona OCs, not vast amounts of OCs in general. I even made my own ponysona, Sabina! But thats it. So if you are either an avid OC maker, or just happy with your own little ponysona (or both!) what are you reasons behind it either way? Why do you create characters, and what do you use them for? Art, stories? And who is your ponysona, if you have one? Do they reflect you as a person, or just a bunch of things you like! I'll add my ponysona, Sabina! She's a Sparkle Pony from the G1 line (and Ive decided a G4 Crystal Pony).

  5. As I'm going through my new version of Moon, I started wondering if anyone else got as heavily emotionally invested in Pokemon as I have & do. Heh, gotten to a point where each of them have their own personalities and minor backstories to them. Do any of you have Pokemon teams you still fondly remember? From several different games, here are the teams of one Glitch Ohms, A.K.A "Widdershins": From Black version we have Team Oblivious: Schmo & Slomo, the Slo silbings. A male Slowbro & a female Slowking. One being the dim-witted but laid back surfer dude type, and his sister a hyper intelligent, but adorably shy worrywart. Misery, a brawler, a female Zweillious, and an all-out abusive Tsundere Pain, a male Hydreigon and, unusual for his species, the calmest & most level-headed of the group (and also the reluctant love interest between Slomo & Misery) Hunter, the shiny male Dodrio. Athletic but a massive troll & jerk. And Hodgepodge the nerdy & paranoid Girafarig From the Kalos region we had Team Hope: Lead by Spark the Delphox, self-appointed leader and obscenely vain and the clear spoiled favorite of his trainer. Speaks fluent english due to his psychic typing and likes to sip tea as posh as possible. Bastet the female pyroar. Blatant carnivore, keeps mistaking opponents & even her trainer as meat. Tantrum the Tyrantum. A big softy & a gentle giant, but never grew into his evolved size. Which makes feeding time a frightening prospect as his mouth is bigger than his trainer's body & he's never been that good at aiming. Gyro the Heliolisk, spastic, twitchy, and greatly impatient. Yami the Mawile. Knows she's cute, but keeps a flat affect and emotions. Is the "straight man" of the team. Though she has caught on to more then half the teams hobbies of using their trainer as a chew toy, but don't worry, he's quickly learned to have tougher skin and a faster sprinting speed. And finally, last and smallest! Squee the Pumpkaboo! Small & impish for her size and an excellent pickpocket! And now, he's come to the Alolalalugh Region!(I'll never be able to pronounce that...)Team Triangle: Popi the Brionne! Reserved but energetic & loves to put on a show. Can often be found hanging off the back of her trainers neck like a frilly & wiggly little backpack. Eclipse the Rockruff. She's competitive & defensive and tends to get jealous easily of the other teammates. Clod Hopper the Mudbray. Largest of the team & laid back, and a stoic colt to the point of being an impenetrable blockhead. Bouncee the Bounsweet (or whatever their line is called) Friendly and as showy as Popi, but can be a snotty little diva should the others tease her too much. Bweh the Salazz* Antagonistic, venomous & an absolute maneater. (Metaphorically of course) And Du'wah Da Beah* Spine-snappingly friendly, but a big, pink, outgoing oaf of a lunk of a goon. May eventually make a B team too, because I'm just enjoying this generation far too much! *Have not actually caught yet. Just so excited I already have them planned out!

    Write the Reaction

    This game came to mind right now. So one pony will write a certain situation with a specific character (pony or non-pony). Next pony will tell how that specific pony would react to that situation, and then write another situation with another specific pony and so on... I'll go first. Discord becomes evil again and try to take over Equestria. Fluttershy's reaction?

  8. So I was wondering as the show goes on, characters do change over time and I want to know what are your thought toward it? Do you think there is a character's development from the Mane 6 at all? If so, is it for the best or for the worst? And what changes would you expect later in the show if any are needed? I will show my feedback later.
  9. Which characters (comics,celebrities,video game,fiction,etc) should get a pony redo?comment which characters should have a pony makeover!
  10. Mane 6 (and Spike!) Applejack This relationship has definitely seen the most development. From barely being able to stand each other for more than a few hours in “Look Before You Sleep”, they now seem to be quite firm friends. Of course, Rarity still tries to get Applejack to be more ladylike, and Applejack still thinks Rarity needs to be less fussy, but overall, they seem to have come to an understanding of each other. Applejack’s selflessness devotion to her family has helped Rarity strengthen her bond with Sweetie Belle, where before she was a little selfish. Applejack taught her the importance of compromising. Highlights: Episode 46. “It’s About Time”: Applejack fixes the crack in the dam, while Rarity fixes up the leaves in AJ’s mane. Episode 53-54. “The Crystal Empire”: Applejack cheers Rarity up with a kind word in “The Crystal Empire”. Episode 61. “Spike at Your Service”: Rarity teaches Applejack how to play the “damsel in distress”. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: Applejack says bluntly, “Yep, you were pretty rotten…” Episode 78. “Simple Ways”: They each parody the other. Twilight Sparkle I don’t usually ship Mane Six members together, but when I do, it’s Rarilight. If I were one to let subtext reign supreme, I would believe these two are already in a relationship. Right from the first episode, Rarity has been very touchy-feely with Twilight. Just go watch the end of “The Crystal Empire”, and tell me she doesn’t act rather tenderly towards Twilight there. She was the first to start singing, went to Twilight to raise her head up with a gentle touch to the chin when Twilight blushed, and put her hoof over Twilight’s as the train left. Sorry, Spike, you’re losing out to your adopted big sister. Even if you ignore the subtext, it’s clear Rarity has a strong regard for Twilight. She noticed she was bothered in “Lesson Zero”, she worried about Twilight not having her crown in Equestria Girls, and most importantly, although she wanted to marry a prince and be a princess, she has never once expressed the slightest sense of jealousy that Twilight is now a Princess and not her. That’s pretty telling, because she was jealous of Fluttershy, and they’re probably the two who spend the most of their time together. Highlights Episode 16. “Sonic Rainboom”: Rarity rump bumps Twilight to encourage her to find a spell. Episode 29. “Lesson Zero”: Rarity calls Twilight a drama queen, after a day of non-stop drama. Episode 53-54. “The Crystal Empire”: Rarity starts the song to Twilight. Rainbow Dash Rarity’s relationship to Rainbow is similar to Applejack, only with a lot less butting of heads. They don’t usually interact, and when they do, it’s pretty low key. We mostly see Rarity doing nice things for Rainbow, like making her a pretty dress for Princess Celestia’s visit, or supporting her in competitions... at first. Not much else to say. Highlights Episode 14. “Suited for Success”: Rarity facedesks when Rainbow can’t be any clearer about her dress than it needs to be cooler. Episode 47. “Dragon Quest”: Rarity tells Rainbow she was surprised her plan worked, and gets a rump to the face in response. Episode 61. “Spike at your Service”: Rarity gives Rainbow a very snarky response to her fanfiction plot, which goes right over Rainbow’s head. Episode 75. “Rainbow Falls”: Rarity takes the relay horseshoe to paint it, to Rainbow’s annoyance. Fluttershy Indications are that Rarity and Fluttershy have been firm friends for a very long time. They often have spa dates together, and Rarity frequently tries to bring Fluttershy out of her shell. Being the prettiest and second-most ladylike Mane Six, they seem to have a lot in common. Their Elements are also quite compatible, since Generosity is being giving with one’s possessions and Kindness is being giving with one’s time and emotion. Other indications of their closeness include Fluttershy helping Rarity with Opal, Rarity calling on her when she needs someone to fly up and help her borrow the Castle decorations. She also tried very hard to be happy for Fluttershy when she caught the eye of Photo Finish, and felt terrible when she was envious. She also very quickly forgave Fluttershy for the vicious tongue-lashing she got in “Putting your Hoof Down”. Highlights Episode 17. “Stare Master”: Rarity is speechless when a quiet word from Fluttershy pulls the CMC into line. Episode 45. “Putting Your Hoof Down”: Rarity pushes a slack-jawed Pinkie’s mouth closed after Fluttershy stands up to Iron Will. Episode 57. “Magic Duel”: Rarity creates a camouflage outfit for Fluttershy that includes bunny ears. Episode 79. “Filli Vanilli”: Rarity quickly picks up on Fluttershy’s eagerness to continue singing. Pinkie Pie Again, not really much to say here. Rarity is sometimes exasperated at Pinkie’s antics, and can even be quite stern with her, but they tend to get along very well most of the time. Pinkie also seems to put some trust in Rarity. In “Last Round-up”, she simply leaps off the stagecoach and tells Rarity to catch her. Highlights Episode 7. “Dragonshy”: Pinkie beats Rarity at Tic-Tac-Toe… 35 times in a row. Episode 45. “Putting Your Hoof Down”: Pinkie and Rarity team up to help Fluttershy be more assertive, but she does so badly that Pinkie buries her head in the ground. Rarity tries to comfort her with a gentle hoof on her mane. Episode 62. “Keep Calm and Flutter On”: Rarity checks her reflection in Pinkie’s newly polished hooves. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: After Rarity delivers her “going down in flames, isn’t friendship magic?” line, Pinkie gives her a sheepish grin and nods agreement. Spike This is one of the most important and talked about relationships in the series. Ironically, given that FiM doesn’t have much by way of romance. A lot of people give Rarity grief over what they see as her taking advantage of him. In some ways, they’re right, but it’s actually much more of a give and take than is sometimes recognized. Yes, she gets him to do stuff for her, but most of the time, Spike’s perfectly okay with it. And she’s hardly the only Mane Six who does. She also frequently gives him rewards for his troubles, such as gems to eat, a carrot-dog, etc. She also sticks up for Spike frequently, and went to great lengths to keep him safe in “Dragon Quest”. It’s clear that she does care for him in her own way. I suspect that Rarity simply doesn’t know exactly how to handle Spike’s precocious crush on her. After all, by the standards of dragonhood, Spike is not even a teenager yet. She can’t view him as a romantic prospect, but she cares for him and certainly wouldn’t want to hurt his feelings. So, until she can find a way to let him down gently, she keeps their relationship at status quo. Perhaps in her mind, letting him do things for her is a way of showing that she does want him to be around. Not always, of course, but I think that’s a large part of it. Highlights Episode 19. “A Dog and Pony Show”: Spike valiantly defends Rarity from the Diamond Dogs. Episode 36. “Secret of My Excess”: The most touching Rarity-Spike moment, as he tries to confess while falling, only for her to shush him and show that she already knows. Episode 61. “Spike at your Service”: She takes a bite out of his terrible pie to make him happy. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: Rarity gives Spike that carrot-dog, which is promptly stolen by a bird. He has it again later, so either he got it back or bought a replacement. Family: Parents, Sweetie Belle and Opal Rarity seems to be deliberately avoiding taking after her parents, who seems like very friendly, if unsophisticated types. Middle class is probably a good way to describe them. We don’t yet know if her dad is a unicorn or earth pony, due to his hat. (BREAKING NEWS - He actually is a unicorn, as shown in "Imagination Manifestation"!) She hasn’t really interacted with them enough to get much of an idea of how close she is to them. While Opal can be temperamental, she seems to have affection for Rarity in her own enigmatic cat way. Her moods follow Rarity’s, and she tries to remind her mistress of her priorities at times. Opal seems to stoically suffer some of Rarity’s more whimsical tendencies, such as her baby-talking and coddling. Rarity’s relationship with Sweetie Belle is the focus of a fair number of episodes. While their sisterly relationship has had its ups and downs, Sweetie Belle clearly looks up to Rarity, and Rarity clearly loves her and tries to do good things for her. While she took her a bit for granted in earlier seasons, Rarity has gotten much better at compromising, mainly due to the events of “Sisterhooves Social”. Where before she would put her own comfort and desires first, she’s now more willing to sacrifice them for Sweetie’s sake. The most recent episodes have shown that Sweetie has long been harbouring a grudge for Rarity overshadowing her, and they may become even closer now that Sweetie has realized that Rarity doesn’t want to keep her in her shadow. Highlights Episode 31. “Sisterhooves Social”: We get to meet Rarity’s parents. This episode also improves the sisters’ relationship. Episode 35. “Sweet and Elite”: Opal taps the design for Twilight’s dress, and is annoyed when Rarity doesn’t notice. Episode 58. “Sleepless in Ponyville”: Despite despising camping and “all that… ugh… nature”, Rarity is willing to brave the wilderness for her sister… as long as no heavy hauling for her is involved. Sweetie doesn’t seem to mind, just being glad that Rarity is there. Romantic Prospects Fancy Pants Catching the eye of this stallion is one of the best things ever to happen to Rarity. He’s also later appeared in Ponyville and Manehatten. Could he be following Rarity around? And is that supermodel pony who always hangs on him just eye candy, or a romantic partner? For Rarity’s sake, I hope not! Trenderhoof Creepy shrine? Check. Trying everything she can to win him over? Check. Learning that changing yourself for someone else is a bad thing? Check. Getting over him? Antagonists: Discord Along with most of the others, Rarity is skeptical of Discord’s change of heart. She blames him for the embarrassment of making her think a rock was a diamond, and so she has little patience or sympathy for him. Photo Finish Photo Finish was rather abrupt to her, made Fluttershy a star and caused Rarity to feel like she had betrayed her best friend by being so jealous. Photo Finish has yet to return in a speaking part, but she was present in a cameo during “Sweet and Elite”, so we could speculate that Rarity is over it. Prince Blueblood Apart from acting like a prat, he used her as a pony shield against flying cake. In the dress she was terrified somepony would spill something on in “A Bird in the Hoof”. A crime against fashion! After she told him just what she thought of him, she was forced to flee, and smashed her glass slipper so that he couldn’t find her. Despite this, he also had a cameo, so perhaps she has forgiven him too. Trixie Although Trixie has done some nasty things to her, Rarity seems to dislike Trixie mainly because of how she treated Twilight. Perhaps we can learn more if Trixie gets another episode (I’m counting the minutes ). Suri Polomane Suri represents what Rarity could become if she lost her sense of generosity. And morals in general. Although Rarity was deeply hurt by her betrayal, she didn’t try to excuse her own bad behaviour towards her friends. She also doesn’t seem to feel a need to get revenge on Suri for taking advantage of her generosity. Perhaps she considers Suri losing her talented assistant, Coco Pommel, to be punishment enough. And with that, I draw this three-part analysis of Rarity to a close. Do you think I was accurate? Do you disagree with my points or have something more to add? Any comments are welcomed. Until next time, stay Rarity-side up!

    What influenced your OCs?

    Hiya there! I've seen a HECKUVA lot of OCs, and a number of them remind me of different things... so I got to wondering what particular influences (if any) brought your original characters out of your mind to play among the rest of us? What was going through your noggin when you came up with them? As an exapmle, I'll go through my OC family: The Blackwaters. Dax Blackwater: I sort-of modeled him after myself during my teenage years, but he draws a heavy influence from both Peter Parker (not Spidey) and Scott Pilgrim - both lovable dorks who end up being the underdog. Harcourt Blackwater: He was built from numerous screenings of The Princess Bride - there's a LOT of the Dread Pirate Roberts (Westley) in him, as well as some Robin Hood and some Zorro. For his stint in Sombra's Shadow, I also borrowed some Bruce Willis (particularly from the movie Red). Oglevy Blackwater: One part David MacAllister from Home Alone, one part Jimmy Neutron, and two parts Corey Feldman from The Lost Boys. Vylia Blackwater: I borrowed a bit from Rarity for her, but I sprinkled in some Bette Midler and a dash of Catherine O'Hara from Beetlejuice (Mama Deetz). And just a smidge of Luella Parsons (if any of you legit know who THAT is without Googling, I shall be IMPRESSED). Luther Blackwater: I pulled his look and his attitude from Judge Doom off of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Mr. Freeze from the original Batman animated series. But for what it's worth, he's FAR nicer than they were.
  13. Hello and welcome to the discussion thread of all things Naruto! I, myself, am I huge fan of the series and I would love to hear your thoughts on it as well. Feel free to discuss everything about it!

    MLP's Failed Character Attempts

    When making a show that is intended to advertise toylines, it's not uncommon for new characters, species or entire groups to be introduced in the hopes of being able to push new products or expand story lines. However sometimes these additions for one reason or another fall flat on their face and accomplish nothing more than a spectacular failure. Sometimes these failures are remedied, but many times they are brushed under the rug and the studio hopes everyone forgets they ever happened. These are some of those spectacular failures and some of the possible reasons why they happened. 1. Breezies The breezies were clearly an attempt at nostalgia for older fans of the franchise. Hasbro clearly hoped to cash in and make these little guys cute, adorable and hopefully fly off of the shelves. However, that didn't exactly end up happening. They flew off the shelves about as much as the actual breezies in the episode could fly themselves. Most of their designs were boring, childish and sometimes just plain stupid. Couple that with annoying high pitched voices and a really odd Scandinavian accent for their leader Seabreeze and you're left with a new species that was insanely short lived. They only appeared in a single episode and were mentioned once after that before Hasbro blew a gust of wind to blow these guys out of existence. The species itself was portrayed as unbelievably incompetent, requiring more or less all of nature to fall in line for them to even be able to continue existing. The breezies could not even truly fly on their own, relying on the wind being the perfect speed and strength to get them where they needed to go. So much had to bend over backward for them to continue to exist. That's probably why they didn't land so well with fans and very little if any merchandise of these little guys exists at all. 2. The Buffalo Despite more visits into the wild west and even Apploosa itself, these native American resembling characters have never been seen since their introduction in season one. These creatures never really seemed to catch on for the fans, and as such very little merch of them was made and they remained in season one. They made cameos in a few other episodes but never played an important or even speaking role again. This may have been for a number of reasons, but two that I can muster at this time. Fans simply didn't enjoy the designs. In the early days a lot of fans wanted cute, adorable characters and the buffalo were not exactly the cutest or cuddliest group around. This likely resulted in low interest from fans to bring them back. Hasbro potentially felt they might have come off as racist depictions of natives. Unlikely, but possible they feared people mistaking them as racist. Hopefully not, though. For whatever reason, the buffalo don't look like they will be making a re-appearance any time soon and it looks like interest in seeing them again is insanely low anyway. Perhaps for the better that this stampede trots off into the sunset for good. 3. Diamond Dogs While their debut episode is generally enjoyed and they were amusing at the time it's clear that Hasbro simply could not figure out how to capitalize on this race of characters. Their designs felt off for the entire show and it's possible Hasbro wanted to avoid having too many neandering idiot male characters. To top this off, their only real role outside of this is a cameo in Equestria Girls. I think most fans enjoyed them as antagonists but didn't really care enough to see more of them. Naturally being not cute, and not even appealing to look at they made nill in the way of toy sales or merchandise. And a character that isn't merchandizable always seems to get the boot. These dogs were put outside and never let back in, but that's okay because realistically most seem to be quite okay with the decision. 4. Babs Seed A spectacular failure if there ever was one. Babs Seed was clearly intended as a new addition to the CMC, and clearly designed to be a recurring character for them to potentially expand the CMC dynamic as she was written into two episodes in the season of her introduction so it was obvious Hasbro had high hopes for her. Unfortunately they clearly counted their chickens before they hatched because the general reception to Babs Seed was mostly negative. From her episode being written fairly badly, her terrible attitude, and her annoying stereotypical brooklyn accent that felt completely out of place. Babs Seed became a very disliked character. By the end of season three little merchandise was made of her, and she was dropped entirely with a quick excuse made up to more or less never show her again. It didn't help that her voice actress moved away, which more or less put the nail in the coffin for this unlikeable cousin. What started out as a potential new dynamic for the CMC ended up just being another forgotten adventure with a useless tag along. What are some characters that you feel fell flat and were quickly forgotten?
  15. With Star Trek: Discovery getting to the halfway mark of its first season and me being about half a season of Voyager away from ending my recent binge of the whole series (upon creating this thread), I decided it was time to poll the community on the subject of Starfleet captains. Who is your favorite Starfleet Caprain? Who is your least favorite Starfleet Captain? I know who's probably going to be answered the most in both questions, but I just felt like asking. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ My Answers: My favorite is Jean-Luc Picard. A very philosophical captain that rarely did anything that really offended or really could offend, he's exactly what I'd want in a captain. One that listens to the concerns of his crew and addresses them, even always giving the respect of saying "your objection is noted" when his actions are questioned by senior officers even under the most trying of circumstances. Plus, he was portrayed as a captain who had his own way of commanding his ship, and his own personality that is as deep as it is well-defined. My least favorite is Kathryn Janeway. She is easily the worst captain for reasons I've [posted about multiple times before. She's an egotistical hypocrite with a contorted sense of morality that always sems to fit her actions, no matter how unjustified. She treats her crew in a way I find downright disrespectful (she's especially bad about it towards Chakotay and Seven of Nine), and she's a downright moron. It doesn't really help her case that SHE is the ONLY REASON Voyager got stranded in the Delta Quadrant in the FIRST PLACE... Also, the way I'd probably rank them: 1. Jean Luc Picard --------------------- 2. James T. Kirk 3. Johnathan Archer --------------------- 4. Benjamin Sisko 5. Kathryn Janeway

    So, who do you think episode 200 is going to focus on if it happens. These 6 we're (basically) the main characters in SOL and I think they deserve their own singular episode so we can learn more about their than we would via shared screen time. Edit: Poll in
  18. Are there any animated characters you cant stand? It can be for their actions, or how much they annoy the heck out of you,and also tell why.
  19. Ever since Rainbow Rocks, I've been hoping for the Dazzlings to make another appearance. I mean, we saw some of the Crystal Prep students again in "Dance Magic" so its not like Hasbro's above recurring EQ character cameos. I thought they were pretty awesome villains and I'd love to see them again (maybe even reformed, that's kind of always been a thing with FiM). Plus I have a huge crush on Adagio (yes, I'm one of those weird people with a crush on fictional characters, but I don't think that's unusual for these parts). Heh.
  20. It's amazing how as an adult you can look at animated movies and really wring out all the great lessons and characterizations in the movie itself. The MLP Movie was certainly no exception. Perhaps a few of the greatest examples I can pull from the movie are Tempest's painful past playing a role with her current role as the Storm King's sidekick Twilight's desperation interfering with her friends Not forgetting who you are and what you're made to do Let's go over the first. So...in the movie when we first see Tempest, we see the familiar villain archetype: wanting surrender, wanting power and wanting to complete tasks for selfish gain. We get a hint of something due to Tempest's broken horn. Fast forward to Tempest's Song "Open Your Eyes", and this is where we learn the full story of what happened to Tempest. The pain of losing her horn caused her to become bitter and angry, because her horn was what made her so special. She loved to create beautiful sky displays...but all of that was taken away from her due to the Ursa Minor slicing off her horn. Even when Twilight saved her, she still felt remorse and sadness. She could not see herself as "complete" without her horn. Nonetheless, as the movie conveyed, "You are still you, perfect and beautiful, no matter what happens or what you look like." The next deep point was Twilight's desperation in wanting to save Ponyville over her friendship. This scene was honestly very hard to watch. After a delightful and joyous song "One Small Thing" by the Mane 5 and Princess Sky Star, it was discovered Twilight was trying to steal the pearl. This costs the Mane 6 their new seapony transformation and a banishment from Seaquestria. Twilight and Pinkie get into an argument, which results in Twilight stating she doesn't need her friends, paraphrasing. This was the big moment where Twilight realized she had become too desperate in the need of an item to save Ponyville and Canterlot, and completely forgot about the worth of her friends. This was where Tempest wanted Twilight, alone and with no one to defend her. This is perhaps the hardest lesson to swallow in the whole movie, because it teaches that you can't rely on physical objects to help you complete a task. In the end, it's the people/ponies/friends that matter the most that will help guide you through whatever you need. The last deep point I bring forth is one that has been repeated in countless movies, one of the first being "The Lion King", "Remember who you are". Returning to that hard scene where Twilight was desperate to save Ponyville, she forgot who she was. She forgot that she was the Princess of Friendship, and in that one scene where she confronted Tempest in that small cell, she said "Friendship didn't fail me...I failed friendship.". Friendship is an abstract idea. It is what brings us together. And in this world today, with all of this hate and stuff that's going around, we can easily get swept away in the vortex and forget who we really are, and in that moment, friendships can disappear with a poof. But alas, this quote has another meaning. Remember the pirates that the Mane 6 met who were supposedly henchmen of the Storm King? Remember how Rainbow Dash reminded them who they were and what they were meant to do with that one song "Time To Be Awesome?" Well, the same principle applies here. You can't let anyone steal your mojo and your charisma. That all belongs to you. To conclude, looking at the MLP Movie from an adult perspective really made me think about my journey through life thus far. It made me ask a lot of questions...such as: Do I know who I really am? Are my "friendships" really true and honest? Am I dwelling in past events too long? Has the past influenced my emotions? Am I letting people take advantage of me and making me forget who I am? Am I blaming other people for my wrongdoings when I am too desperate to complete a certain task? There are a lot more questions out there. In the end, looking at the MLP Movie from an older perspective can really help you evaluate yourself from all points and make you think about what has been successful, and what you need to work on, so you can become the best you can.

    Characters and amount of dialogue

    I think I've become obsessed recently with how many lines a character gets in an episode. It could just be a temporary thing, though. Has anyone else?
  22. Something I've noticed to be true is that from Ironman... ...to the Beatles... ...no one is ever safe from ponification. That being said there are still many characters that have yet to be given the pony treatment. I started trying to think of some that I'd like to see. A few that came to mind: Pony Montana (Tony Montana-Scarface) - Partially cause the name fits so well with anyone named Tony, partially cause he's such a cool character that I think deserves to explore his pony side, and partially cause there's a little ghost town called Pony, Montana. More Lord of the Rings ponies. Especially Gandalf and Aragorn. - I've seen a couple, not many though. Maybe because it's so hard to turn their names into horse puns . However, LOTR is all about magic, mystical creatures, and adventure. So is My Little Pony, so it seems to fit. Also there's not many ponies out there with epic beards, there needs to be more! Mare E. Garcia (Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead) The Rarity micro comic has really sparked an interest in me for the characters Flax Seed and Wheat Grass (especially Wheat Grass) and I feel they should have some hippy pony musicians to listen to. Anyway, which of your favorite characters would you like to see ponified? Any particular ones that have been ponified, but you feel deserve a more thorough ponification? Any particularly well made ponifications you've seen that you'd like to share?
  23. For me, I have no idea why, but I miss Twilight's old library! her new castle is all glitz and glam, but it doesn't have any of the cozy-home feeling the library had. I realize this may have been intentional, but I remember being new to the show and watching her spend her first night in the library and being very charmed by the layout and design of it, haha! Is there anything you guys miss from the earlier episodes?

    First Impressions

    When I was showing the first episodes of MLP to my friend it got me thinking about my first time watching them and my first impression of the Mane 6. Rarity is my favorite character of the Mane 6, but when I first watched the show I really thought of her as shallow, conceited and narcissistic . I really saw her in a bad light and it wasn't until the episode Suited For Success, that I started seeing her for the generous , thoughtful and sincere pony that she is. It was then that I started noticing her actions more than usual and fell in love with her. So I want to know: Which of the mane 6, or peripheral characters, made a bad first impression on you and when was it (if ever) did they change your opinion of them? Are they one of, or your ultimate favorite now? Do you think the writers did that character, or characters, an injustice by premiering them with a lack luster story or painted them in a lesser than greater light?
  25. The Mane Six were ALWAYS main characters of the show, there's no doubt about that! But then we have Spike who is considered a main character by the staff, and the CMCs and Starlight are in the supporting characters category. I find this to be rather odd with each part these characters play. Spike is considered a main character, regardless of not having an Element of Harmony, and not being called by the Cutie Map. Every episode where he's the starring role so far, Twilight always appears, regardless of Twilight having at least one without him (No Second Prances). Also unlike the rest of the main cast, Spike doesn't share many episodes with another main character. Plus, he usually has less starring roles per season than any of the Mane Six, AND even supporting characters like the CMCs and Starlight have more than him. Also, Spike wasn't treated that serious before season 6, and has the fewest amount of songs than even certain supporting characters. Now the CMCs, they get a ton of episodes on their own and a ton of songs. Starlight's been getting a ton of episodes and she was even called by the Cutie Map once! She was even a season hero in the previous season! Now all this is making me question who's considered a main character or not. It's either Starlight and the CMCs did enough stuff for them to be considered main characters, or Spike should be considered a supporting character since side characters seem to be doing more than him. Now I'm not complaining that Spike isn't doing anything, he is doing stuff now! So pretty much who's considered a main character or not in most TV media is who does the most stuff; and if supporting characters are outshining the main characters, then perhaps supporting characters should be considered main characters, or certain main characters who has supporting characters outshining them on a regular bases should be considered supporting characters.
