  1. Have any of you felt like you had feelings for characters you knew that weren't real? If so, don't be shy to share you feelings during the week of Valentines.
  2. This thread is devoted to all the fans of queen chrysalis Rules: No R34,suggestive pics are permitted AS LONG AS ITS NOT EXPLICIT No spamming post to become biggest fans Do not post a other pics that are not Chrysalis Do not hate on another fan club, for example posting in the Queen Chrysalis forum "Twilight is better!" All of MLP Forums rules still apply.
  3. Of course note my sexuality here. I am gay so I cannot in all good conscience place female characters on this list. I will also only place human characters as well, so no Pip or the et cetera. Since Androxus will also not be on this list due to the curse that afflicted his body turning it into something that is debatably not human as well. Khan WILL be on this list because although you can't see his face or any part of his body through his armor in the base skin, you can with the Amerikhan skin, and he is human. SS: Fernando, Koga S: Jenos, Khan, Sha'Lin A: Strix, Viktor, Buck, Atlas, Lex, B: Zhin, Mal'Damba By the way, the aforementioned stipulations are why the tier list has been placed here instead of on Guru like my tier list by my opinions of how powerful each individual champion is in the current meta. (Here's a link to it if you want to check it out)
  4. Who is your favorite student in class 1-A? I’m sure you can guess who mine is but here is my list: - Katsuki Bakugo - Eijirou Kirishima - Denki Kaminari - Izuku Midoriya - Hanta Sero - Fumikage Tokoyami
  5. Bad news guys. MLP characters swear. Well, not EXACTLY. In "Owl's Well That Ends Well", Twilight says "shoot" when losing her descriptive paper on comets. In "Feeling Pinkie Keen", Spike exclaims, "Holy Guacamole" at Princess Celestia's sudden appearance. In "A Dog and Pony Show", Pinkie exclaims "Holy Moley" at all the holes the Diamond Dogs have made. In "Call of the Cutie" and "The Cutie Map: Part 1", along with a few other episodes, Applejack says "shoot", rather casually. In "The Last Roundup" and many other episodes, Applejack exclaims, "What the hay?" "Shoot" is a pseudonym for "Shit". While it may not be the same word, it certainly has the same intention and meaning behind the reason to say it. "What the hay" is a pseudonym for "What the Hell" or "What the Fuck". Again, the intention is the same through conveying a message through what is deliberately said. Same goes for "Holy Guacamole" and "Holy Moley" being pseudonyms for "Holy Shit" or "Holy Crap". So what do you say? Is MLP no different in dirty mouths as any other PG-13 reality TV show like Duck Dynasty or Storage Wars? I don't understand you, Hasbro. I just don't.
  6. So just as the title said. I will share mine later on but go on ahead and share your favorite anime/manga characters and why.
  7. Just like Twilight Sparkle writing letters to Celesita, you get to write a letter to your favorite pony in the MLP:FiM universe. Got multiple favorite ponies? Or maybe no ponies but a certain non-pony character? No problem! You get to write a letter to them too. Here in this thread, you can write any length of letter you want to your special pony/character and pour your heart out as to how awesome and influential they are to you. Just be sure to keep things appropriate and on topic to the forums. Alrighty, I'll start with my own letter to my favorite pony. Dear Fluttershy, Good evening! My name is Iris. I'm writing to you today to tell you some important things. Don't be alarmed! The things I'm going to tell you are not bad news. What I'm telling you in this single letter is... how much I love and admire you. You are a very special pony and you don't even know it. I know this is very forward to say these things but It's the absolute truth. There is no other pony like you in this world. You are so caring and kind to everything around you. So much so that you literally carry the element of kindness within you. You have banished evil, tamed beasts, and made unexpected friends with the kindness in your heart all over Equestria. I have seen you do it all and more. Yet... you still seem to miss some of that. It's ok, I know your struggles with anxiety and quietness. I am the same way with many things. I know what it's like to have a past with anxiety and bullying... but you wanna know something? WE SURVIVED. Did we ultimately give up on life because of what some fillies and colts said? No! Did we completely close ourselves from others and never improve? No! Did we let the world burn because we had a bad past??? NO WE DIDN'T!!! You and I worked extremely hard to improve ourselves and guess what? We did it. That's why I love you so much Fluttershy. Despite everything that has happened to you, you remained kind. You remained to be yourself. To end off this letter to you, I just want to thank you for everything. Especially for bringing me happiness during those hard years of high school. Thank you so much for being who you are. With lots of love, Iris Flower
  8. Since the top 20 list wasn't, well... very well-explained, I plan to make a new list soon. But, for now I'll talk about one specific show and what it does so well. That show being? Steven Universe. In my opinion, Steven Universe is just one of the shows I could count on one hand that ascends above everything else that has EVER come on TV. No matter how much I hate the fandom (it's NOT okay to tell people to kill themselves over a piece of fanart or to attack a kid DYING OF CANCER over the fact he got to watch episodes early before he DIED *cough cough* AwestruckVox *cough cough), no matter how much BS there is around about the show having a "liberal agenda" (it doesn't, if you really watched the show without trying to get offended by it, you'd understand it applies to everyone and works for everyone regardless of political stance), and no matter if it messed up a few episodes (I can admit that), I can't stop LOVING this show. Yes, I do think that the first season was downright ATROCIOUS, but after that point, it recovered quite well from it's mistakes and really turned itself around. It went from a show I couldn't stand to a masterpiece of a show that even at it's most disappointing, is far from a bad show. Here's just a couple of reasons why this show is just so amazing. THE CHARACTERS When I watched Season 1, I hated EVERYONE in the show. They were all annoying, one-dimensional wrecks (particularly Steven and Garnet... Ugh). But now, I don't even find RONALDO irritating, and he's a character that's always considered annoying by the animation community as a whole. I can't blame them, but he's even improved to the point I don't cringe when he/s on screen anymore... As for everyone else... Well, I'll give you the three best examples. Steven went from being immature and downright annoying to being mature almost beyond his father's years. He's really shown that he has a heart of, well, solid diamond of a sizeable carat. Gold is FAR from appropriate. Steven has an ability to just humanize ANYONE. To be able to really get to literally anyone on a deep emotional level. Heck, one great scene of his involves him destroying a weapon Bismuth MADE for him because he wasn't out to destroy gems, but instead to speak out to them, to teach them of tolerance and of kindness. I really can't believe it. They really went out of the park with him. From, I swear, giving me ANEURYSMS to being the absolute nicest, sweetest kid in... well, anything ever. Pearl went from a b**** with a serious nagging issue, to a character with more depth than I could possibly have imagined. She apparently was in love with Rose Quartz, was hiding a secret of hers for over 5000 years (one with DIRE consequences mind you), and has shown a level of concern and care for Steven that wouldn't even be expected out of the best of mothers. She also has been struggling with plenty of her own demons for the longest time. When Steven got into her mind, you really got to see what she has on her mind all the time. On the exterior is the organized clean freak we know her to be, but underneath lies a hidden depression, comprised of thousands of years of sorrow. I could go on, but Pearl's insanely deep even for a Steven Universe character, and that says something because they all have an amount of depth I've never seen anywhere else. Garnet went from being a complete f***ing buzzkill to being literally the best LGBT representation in ALL of media, period, and among the absolute best cartoon characters EVER devised. Garnet really shows the beauty of love, regardless of who it's between. Ruby and Sapphire (the two gems that fuse to create Garnet) are absolutely the most adorable couple I've ever seen. The two, well, women also offer up their own characters to the mix, really creating an interesting sort of split personality within Garnet that occasionally manifests itself. A part of her is insightful and mature, while another part of her is energetic and almost childlike in a very charming way. They literally fused out of love, and they've stayed fused for most of almost 6000 years! That's true love, if I've ever known it. True dedication to each other and to their fusion. She, well, they are just such a great way to represent the community as a whole. I could never ask for such. It's also a huge plus that they're "marriage" was the most adorable thing I've ever witnessed in all of animation... Garnet is really a show of how strong the bond of love can be, and an impressive one at that. THE MESSAGE I also love the message of the series as a whole, which I would say is that we should let everyone be who they are, regardless of any standards we may place on them. That we should accept people's expressions of themselves. If you hate the show for having a message like that, well you're offended and you more than deserve to be... Seriously, this show is beyond insightful and if you decide not to see that because you don't like it, you have a problem not the show. There is so MUCH to get out of this masterpiece of a show. There is a lot about individuality, a lot about abusing power, and a lot about the importance of the connections we have with others, among a lot about other things as well. Seriously, there's just so many good things this show could teach EVERYONE that listing them would take far too long. All I'm saying is, this show is deep and thought-provoking with messages that can apply to literally anyone, regardless of who they happen to be. This show is a show for everyone, young or old, conservative or progressive, male or female, white or black, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity... I can't recommend it enough. Though I also can't recommend skipping the first season enough either. There are a few key episodes that should be seen to start with, but this is more about how good the show is and not anything else. This show is a phenomenal show. It's even more than just a show... It's an experience, and it's one heck of an experience. It's one that I think every single fan of animation should give a try, and a real try not just make some pointless 30-45 minute videos trying to criticize it's animation style that don't really go anywhere and prove more or less you're trying to hate the show as hard as you possibly can (I've seen more than one of those ...). All I ask to people who do that s*** is to really give the show a shot before they start bashing it. Maybe you can see the same thing I do in it.
  9. 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
  10. Out of all the characters in the current generation of MLP, who is the best and worst written in your opinion? Here's mine: Best written: Scootaloo. When I was born, I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, so the fact that Scootaloo is a pegasus who can't fly is extremely relatable to me. In every episode, I find her actions, words, and just everything so real. She feels like the character that in my opinion, could be a real person in real life. She's childish and determined. Brave and easily impressed, yet she has limits. I love the way she's written, and clearly with The Washouts being her newest centric episode, the writers have not failed to bring spirit and charisma to Scoots. Worst written: Fluttershy. All her early episodes, as had been said many times, were just poor rehashes over and over. Now, some have argued, her character has gone past that phase, and while I think that's true, I believe she has entered a worse one. Her episodes are now extremely forgettable, and all memorable/lovable aspects of her personality have vanished. I feel like Fluttershy was never really written all that well, especially with the archetype she's supposed to fit in. I'd love to hear all of your opinions, though, and please specify why.
  11. I've been thinking about this question for a while now and I was wondering. Should I be adding what the character feels in a situation rather good or bad?
  12. Well, I was originally going to vent here, but I got inspiration after watching a YouTube video to do something less simultaneously migraine-inducing and controversial. I'll just discuss some of my favorite characters to play as in video game history, and why I enjoy them so much. The only rules here are one per game. These are not in order. Barik (Paladins)- The Dwarven god among men himself. My main when I played Paladins, he brought me so much enjoyment playing the game that I can hardly contain myself right now with the literal nostalgia I have on the topic. I actually don't know why I enjoy him so much. Maybe it's my signature playstyle of plopping turrets wherever I see fit and destroying everyone? Maybe it's his emphasis on positioning? Maybe it's dashing in circles like a little madman high on drugs? Maybe it's even because I'm playing as the Paladins equivalent of Goldeneye 007's Oddjob? I really don't know. But he's so enjoyable that I managed to play as him in over HALF of all of my matches playing the game. Axton (Borderlands 2)- My recent obsession, Axton has become my favorite Borderlands 2 character to play as. Why? Only one line must be said here. "Have you met the misses?" Are you starting to see a pattern here? Turrets. I freaking like turrets. Axton's turret has great offensive zoning potential building an Engineer build, and it also gives you INSANE buffs to your damage output running the Battlefront skill. Combining this with weapons with high damage potential like the Unkempt Harold results in the DPS being taken to MAXIMUM overdrive. Sure, he has the worst melee in the ENTIRE GAME and I like playing melee builds, but his turret build is even better than Melee Zer0 for me. Yoshi (Smash Bros)- Oh. My. Word. The. SPIKES. I've always found Yoshi a blast to play because there's just so many ways you can burst your opponent into submission. But the most fun will always be spiking straight into volleyball combos. If you're unaware, Yoshi has the capability to pretend you're a volleyball and smack you into the next ZIP code with a combo of chaining down and up airs. They keep saying Villager isn't the face of mercy, but Yoshi is RUTHLESS. He'll knock you into the next ZIP code with his tail, He will throw eggs at your face like grenades. Heck, he will even use his HEAD as a weapon of mass destruction. Seriously, that noggin has some serious kill potential. Sniper (Team Fortress 2)- There's a good reason he was my go-to when I played the game. He's a great example of how a sniper class should be executed. He's got a surprising amount of versatility, and he's got a lot of ranged damage. Sure it's at the expense of close-quarters... but... IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE! Take a Shahanshah. Sure it deals bad damage if you melee somebody at above half health, but when you get flanked, it's super useful because your health pool is going to get low enough to get the damage buff at low health. With that boost, those annoying scouts are history. Also, he's even got support options! Get a Sydney Sleeper and you can mark targets for your team to take down for you! Mordecai (Borderlands 1)- Note that I didn't say one per SERIES. Sure, Bloodwing is a bit of a subpar action skill without investment, but that's more than made up for running him with a Sniper or a Pistol build. Sniper builds on him are BETTER than Zer0 in all honesty. With skills like Trespasser that allow you to have up to a 100% chance to IGNORE SHIELDS and skills like Killer that allow you to consistently chain damage output, it's not hard to see what makes him fun to play but also really good. This isn't to mention his potential with pistols (especially revolvers) running the right build, especially with the right Class Mods along with skills that buff reload speed and DPS. I may add a League of Legends character and a DotA 2 character later on, but this is it.
  13. 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~
  14. 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).
  15. 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!
  16. 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?
  17. What songs do you think best suit the characters? For me: Twilight Sparkle- "Stand My Ground" by Within Temptation Rainbow Dash- "One Girl Revolution" by Superchick or "Danger Zone" from Top Gun Applejack- "Real Gone" by Sheryl Crow Pinkie Pie- "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow Sunset Shimmer post-Equestria Girls- "Soak Up the Sun" by Sheryl Crow Princess Luna- "Moondance" by Nightwish Spike- "I'm Just a Kid" by Simple Plan Nightmare Moon- "Angel of Darkness" by Alex C., feat Yasmin K. or "Creeping in My Soul" by Cryoshell Discord (evil phase)- "When You're Evil" by Voltaire Queen Chrysalis- "Shapeshifter" by Gary Hughes feat. Irene Jansen King Sombra- "Dance with the Devil" by Breaking Benjamin Sunset Shimmer (evil phase)- "Evil Angel" by Breaking Benjamin Tirek- "Avarice" by Disturbed The Dazzlings (mainly Adagio Dazzle)- "The Siren" by Nightwish Starlight Glimmer (evil phase)- "Dangerous Mind" by Within Temptation Midnight Sparkle- "It's the Fear" by Within Temptation Grogar (if he appears in Friendship is Magic)- "Let You Down" by Three Days Grace
  18. 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.
  19. 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!

  22. 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.
