  2. Title: Putting Your Hoof Down Air Date: March 3, 2012 Synopsis: After being pushed around one too many times, Fluttershy gets some assertiveness training from self-help guru Iron Will. The former doormat quickly turns into a bully.
  3. Twilight Sparkle wanted nothing more than to see the Northern Stars on the Zeppelin Cruise with her family. But thanks to Iron Will, who was running the cruise, her dreams are smashed into pieces. Saddened by seeing Twilight's heart broken, her family does everything they can to try and console her. Author’s Note: This story is to serve as how Twilight’s family SHOULD have approached the situation when Twilight started sobbing after missing out on the Northern Lights.
  4. I have an episode idea that came into my head all of sudden. And you can thank the Season 2 episode: Putting your Hoof Down, plus the Season 7 episode: Once Upon a Zeppelin. The episode idea involves Iron Will taking up an Alex Jones-like role, sending out lies to the good folks of Equestria on how much of a tyrant Princess Celestia is. Most of the ponies end up believing the lies and it causes a commotion for Princess Celestia. Iron Will then scams her into buying a self-help book on being more courteous. And while it made Celestia friendlier, it also made her more of a shirking violet, which caused alot of concern for her allies(Ember, PRince Rutherford, Thorax and Novo) as well as Twilight Sparkle, Starlight Glimmer, and Pinkie Pie. The tipping point is reached when Iron Will does a report showcasing on how weak Celestia really is, and even rubs it in on the number of times she was beaten by the likes of Tempest Shadow, Queen Chrysalis and even Lord Tirek. This causes Celestia to break down crying over her failures. While Twilight and Starlight go to comfort Celestia, Pinkie Pie pulls a Bugs Bunny and tricks Iron Will into saying some really stupid things on air. This makes him the joke of Equestria, and it's all topped off when he falls into one of Celestia's over-complicated traps to further the humiliation. It's just something that just popped in my head, recently. What do you all think?
  5. Good afternoon everypony, and welcome back to another edition of "Batbrony Reviews"! Well at this point it shouldn't be any surprise that this season we were delivered yet another very exceptional episode, but here we are again, and boy oh boy was this one a long time coming for a very big reason. We all know by now that family and legacy have been the two major themes of Season 7, and this week the show hit on that theme yet again with a major appearance (for the first time ever in the show) of Twilight's ENTIRE family! We may have seen plenty of Shining Armor, Princess Cadance, and even Flurry Heart in the past, but strangely enough, before this episode, her parents, Twilight Velvet and Night Light, despite making multiple appearances in episodes throughout multiple seasons, had never had roles as main characters and had only spoken a few lines in a minor appearance in last season's "The Crystalling - Part 2." This was always a bizarre oversight, not quite as infuriating as Celestia being so neglected as a character before this season, but very head scratching all the same considering (1) we've seen them make appearances in the show since Season 1, (2) they are the parents of the main character of the show (not to mention a princess of Equestria), a major supporting character, and the in-laws of another princess of Equestria (or another kingdom entirely if you're one of those folks who don't consider the Crystal Empire to be part of Equestria). Well, after the show's writers finally rectified this strange oversight, I am happy to announce that Twilight Velvet and Night Light made splendid appearances and that both were not just likable as individual characters themselves, but also gave us a very solid glimpse into how Twilight and Shining Armor both ended up the way they are with parents like those two. There's a lot of other great things to unpack from this episode, so without further ado, let's dive in! This is "Once Upon a Zeppelin"!!! So the episode start with, oddly enough, the best Spike and Twilight scene of all of Season 7 thus far, if not the best Spike scene of the season. Now, the bad thing about this is it speaks to how little major attention outside of one OK episode Spike has gotten this season, but on the other hand he still has had some very good moments this season, and this one was a true gem. The implicit and total trust and love that Twilight and Spike have in and for one another was on full display for about two minutes, if that, with Spike insisting that Twilight take a vacation for herself when her parents offered while he stay behind to handle her work load. Twilight in turn objects by declaring that he's as much a family member of hers as the rest of her family (possibly the first time she's ever flat-out stated so clearly he is family), but Spike, while clearly appreciative of Twilight recognizing this, just takes everything in stride and still insists she take a nice break for herself. This is all capped off by Spike humorously predicting to himself that Twilight's gonna start planning a schedule of activities for the trip any second now, which she then does. While, as I said, a very short scene, there's a lot of heartwarming elements to unpack here. Not only is Spike's offer very selfless and generous, especially considering he already functions as Twilight's assistant virtually 24/7, but the way he and Twilight treated each other like family didn't feel forced in the slightest. Instead it felt like how two siblings would treat each other when one is just trying to do something nice for the other and who have the utmost confidence and trust in one another. Contrast this with Season 1, where not only Spike was considerably less mature but also Twilight treated him very often more like a son than a sibling, and you have an idea of just how much these two characters' relationship with one another has matured and developed since the show began. Ya know, I should be more surprised that Twilight would find vacation-scheduling/list-making while on vacation to be relaxing, but honestly after seven seasons I don't think any brony at all should be phased by this revelation Once the vacation itself begins the episode introduces a whole slew of characters, so we'll have to break down the episode by them bit by bit. Starting with our main character, Twilight was quite good here. I wouldn't go so far as to say this was her best episode of the season by any means, but if you're going to do 'Twilight stresses herself out unnecessarily because she's trying to juggle too much and please too many people without thinking about her own wants or needs' in Season 7, this is how you should do it. It's no "Lesson Zero" breakdown where the fault and blame rested squarely on a much younger Twilight's shoulders because she was making bad choice after bad choice, no no, for the most part Twilight was trying to please both her family and the ponies on the cruise (more on them later) as best as she possibly could by keeping a stiff upper lip about it. Her biggest mistake was that she underestimated how important devoting some time to herself would be in this situation, especially in the context of taking a vacation with her entire family, which is a very rare occasion for her these days given how busy she and the rest of them are (with the exception of possibly her parents, they seemed to be either retired or, if they're too young for that, just entering the twilight stages of their career-lives and seem to be very relaxed now that both kids are out of the house). Her other mistake is that she failed until the end to set some boundaries for ponies outside of their family who, although well-meaning, were a little too pushy, clingy, or cloying at times in their desire to let Twilight know just how much they liked her. These were undoubtedly a big mistakes, after all they're why there were any problems in the first place, but they are also very understandable mistakes, even for Twilight to make at this point in her life. She's a goodhearted pony who always wants to do the right thing for any pony she can, and given her responsibilities as one of Equestria's own monarchs (technically) it's hard for her to unwind when around others these days. Thankfully she learned her lesson by the end, and I can't even say her venting and lashing out at Star Tracker was that bad (more on him later too) seeing as, even though her anger itself wasn't good, her being brutally honest was how the rest of her family finally realized something was wrong for her in the first place (though they did keep asking if she was OK throughout the episode). All in all, this was about as solid an episode featuring Twilight in Season 7 as you could ask for, at least in an appearance that, while quite exceptional, was hardly something we'd call one of her best showings ever. Holy shit, that's cute!!! Moving on, the Royal Crystal Family (or should it be Imperial Crystal Family since it's an empire??? Whatever, point is, it's Princess Cadance, Shining Armor, and Princess Flurry Heart) had a pretty great showing as well. Flurry Heart, while she didn't have much beyond some cute and funny appearances, was her usual, adorable self. Probably her funniest bit was where she was at a playtime with a bunch of other foals and couldn't help but keep trying to stack them on top of each other like building blocks with her magic. Besides that, though, wasn't too much else to her, although her surprised reaction to Twilight doing something off-schedule was both hilarious and also suggests she may be starting to understand adults more and more... that or the writers just did it for the sake of making the joke even funnier. Today's episode features Princess Flurry Heart in "Shit You Do When You're Bored, a Foal, and Have Wayyyyyyyyy Too Much Magic" Shining Armor was one of the best scene stealers in this entire episode, which is pretty impressive when you consider that a "airsickness/seasickness" running gag is pretty hard to make funny in anything. I think what made it work here is that it not only gave us a look at Shining Armor's dorkier side (which is usually when he shines the most) but we also got to see him hilariously trying to handle airsickness which he tried to insist wasn't a thing the entire time in front of his ENTIRE family, quite literally. His sister was pretty much laughing her ass off at him, his wife was quietly trying to help him save face, and his parents (especially his mom) were pretty much coddling him (the funniest bit being when his mom literally lifted him out of the water with her magic, an image which just looked hilarious considering he looks to be a head taller than her). Don't get me wrong, Shining obviously wasn't just the butt of jokes; he still looked out for his sister and family and seemed to have a good time, but my goodness, "Airsick Shining Armor" was a terribly fun running gag. "I'M THE KING OF THE WORL- oh buck, nope, not good!" "As your LSBFF, I am obligated to find joy in your suffering." "I bucking hate you sometimes, Twilight." Finally, Cadance herself had an exceptionally solid showing with a bit of a subplot of her own evening, a pretty subtle one at that. The entire trip she seemed to look out for Twilight the most out of the entire family, most likely because she could relate the most to what Twilight was dealing with. They all wanted to make sure she was doing alright, but Cadance in particular kept approaching her and, after Twilight's breakdown, was able to tell her exactly what she needed to hear. She explained that part of being a princess means accepting that you can still be a good princess even if you are unable to please everyone 24/7. You have to be able to take care of your own needs still, and sometimes even wants are needs (such as Twilight needing some time to relax with her family). Cadance both explained and showed this in the episode in how her first and foremost priority, in most scenes, was taking care of Flurry Heart, and watching out for the rest of her family while she was at it. This is best displayed when Cadance explains as much to Twilight and Iron Will when they learn the exact nature of the air cruise, as well as when she makes sure her daughter doesn't get smothered with attention from complete strangers who just want to see their kids befriend a baby royal princess, even though they're well meaning. She's very protective throughout the entire episode, and much of that includes being protective of her family's privacy. The fact that this never came off as snobbish was very impressive, you could really sympathize with what Cadance was going through and why she was doing what she did, and I even found myself wondering if this is what watching out for their kids in real life is like for major celebs or public figures. But overall, as far as being the bearer of an episode lesson goes, this was definitely one of Cadance's best showings ever in that regard, especially in her role as a mother and her mentoring Twilight as her sister-in-law, friend, and fellow princess. This, however, will probably haunt her nightmares for quite some time... and mine, too. Seriously, who the hell sold that in the first place??? Now that we've got the familiar faces out of the way, it's time to get into some of the juicier and unexpected bits of the episode... which were admittedly a bit of a mixed bag, though largely solid on the whole. First of all, let's talk about, you guessed it... Twilight's parents, Night Light and Twilight Velvet (voice by Charlie Demers and Patricia Drake, though they had been previously voiced by Andrew Francis and Tara Strong). How were these two? Oh, a whole lot of fun! They weren't the amazing soccer parents that Bow Hothoof and Windy Whistle were, nor were they the sweetest of couples with an amazing romantic backstory to go along with it like Bright Mac and Pear Butter were. In fact, their appearance, while anticipated, wasn't nearly as fandom-mind-blowing as those previous two sets of parents were, considering, as I mentioned earlier, we've seen these two many times before. And yet it was still a very satisfying appearance all the same in which we got a very solid idea of how these two produced the children they did. First, you have Night Light, who, although both he and his wife are pretty grounded for the most part, is definitely the more straight-laced of the two. I mean, the guy's favorite thing to do on the airship for crying out loud is BINGO! This is the type of guy who, like Twilight, probably loves nothing more on a lazy Sunday than curling up in his favorite chair with a good book and a cup of tea, and I could easily see the majority of her love of organization, lists, and scheduling coming from him mostly. Not that Twilight Velvet seemed out of sorts or anything, but out of those two, she was, very surprisingly, the wild child of the two! I think many bronies were caught off guard by this character development, but at the same time most I've spoken to (myself included) welcomed it, as it quite refreshingly helps distinguish the two parents from each other. She still seems very similar to her husband and daughter, but she definitely has a bit of the "thrill junkie" within her; heck, speaking as someone who keeps a lot of his own likes and habits "close to the vest" myself, I could totally see Twilight Velvet being the same way. Not necessarily being dishonest in public about who she is to others, but simply keeping a lot of her own private likes and habits to herself, only occasionally cutting loose with them. The best bit in this, of course, was Twilight Velvet's literally riding a barrel over Neighagara Falls, a scene which was as hilarious as it was adorable. Twilight Velvet's reaction and adrenaline from it all was priceless, her wet mane whipped over her face looked adorable, and Night Light coming up and pecking her on the cheek to her delight while her face was still covered was even MORE adorable!!! And now Batbrony presents... lewd conversations with the Sparkles. Read at your own peril MAJESTIC AS BUCK!!! My lewd jokes about Twilight Velvet's "wild" side aside, this was the bucking cutest shot in this entire episode and it is as sweet as it is pure and innocent. It's amazing how just a little peck on the cheek from Night Light and the smile it brings out on his wife can reveal so much about how much they love one another, and I'm sure that many married couples or just people completely in love with one another could tell you (speaking as someone madly in love myself) that little gestures like that between two loved ones are some of the best parts of getting to shower love upon someone else you love. Doesn't always have to be a sweeping gesture, sometimes little reinforcements of one's love for another like that mean all the world to them. Also, c'mon, I mean... LOOK AT HOW BUCKING CUTE THAT IS!!! Of course, they had more good bits than just that. Their policy about accepting free tickets to a cruise, no questions asked (even though they had no idea what contest it was for to begin with), was too funny (especially how it came back to bite them in the flank later, not to mention it sounds like the setup to a slasher film); their looking out for their children was quite fun to see (especially the aforementioned scene where Twilight Velvet literally lifts Shining Armor from the water with her magic); and their soaking up attention from cruise participants thrilled to see the princesses was pretty funny too. Overall, they were just a cool, cute couple who behaved for the most part pretty much exactly as you'd expect Twilight's parents to behave - dorky, straight-laced, and just a little bit crazy, with just enough wrinkles and unique character traits thrown in there to make them stand on their own as their own characters. It was a great showing from the both of them and I am happy we finally got to see these two in expanded roles! Hopefully we'll get to see even more of them in the future. In yet another returning character, we, surprisingly, saw the return of Iron Will in this episode! The reason I list him here among newer elements is because (1) his return was so unexpected (seriously, I would never have pegged him to show back up in this of all episodes) and (2) he was written kind of... differently than in his first appearance. Let's recall, in Iron Will's first appearance in "Putting Your Hoof Down" he was, at the most, a minor antagonist, if even that. He didn't come off as deliberately malevolent or anything, just a bit of a shrewd businessman and slightly bully-ish in the way he threw his muscles around to intimidate others. But he was still a minotaur of his word who set out to ACTUALLY help ponies become more assertive, and when Fluttershy insisted that she wasn't satisfied with his services, he kept his end of the bargain and stopped demanding payment from her. He seemed like someone who overall was, at the end of the day, pretty decent, even if he was a bit of a hothead as well. Here, Iron Will was far more of a jerk and written as, if I'm being honest, a bit of a con artist as well. I mean, he did try to deliver a quality product to his customers until the end of the episode, but he bamboozled Twilight's family into taking the trip in the first place and then, when they finally decided they were done letting him drag Twilight all over the place at the end of the episode and explained the situation to the other ponies onboard, just skipped out on his angry customers for some bizarre reason. Now, make no mistake, hearing Trevor Devall in this role again (one week after he reprised his role as Thunderlane as well) was hilarious and a lot of fun, and for the most part Iron Will was still his old, over-the-top, bombastic self (like a... jerkier Mr. T, if you will). But again, his presence here was confusing at times, especially in his interactions with Twilight considering... well, he'd technically never even met her before! He'd met Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy previously, but certainly not Twilight. Now I'm sure it's both possible Twilight saw him around town and heard about him from her friends, but still, as far as we know, those two individuals had never actually met each other. Heck, I was confused as well how he'd heard about Twilight's tour of Cloudsdale; his other stories about her were obviously made up, but that first one was legit, unless of course he thought he made it up and instead accidentally told a legit story about Twilight. However, if I'm being perfectly honest, most of my critiques for Iron Will here are largely me nitpicking. He was for the most part a treat to see; his story about getting into the themed cruise business because the assertiveness-seminar market had dried up was as hilarious as it was random, and his exit at the end, like with everything involving Iron Will, was hilariously over the top! Overall, he had a fine showing, and was a lot of fun to see once more. Finally, we come to the cruise passengers themselves, who, let's be honest, were an obvious allegory and stand-in for the fandom, particularly fans when they encounter show makers and celebs at pony conventions. As in "Fame and Misfortune," their presence here was both mixed and very meta. However, it was definitively superior to the depiction of the fandom in "Fame and Misfortune" for a number of very good reasons. Generally speaking, the cruise passengers here, while often depicted in a negative light, were also depicted in a positive light as well (I'd say the balance between the negative and positive was 50/50) and they had a satisfying resolution to their place in the story arc. In contrast, "Fame and Misfortune" felt very raw and hostile in its treatment of any ponies who were supposed to be representing the fandom (with like the exception of one or two characters), and had barely any resolution with them even. As I said in my "Fame and Misfortune" review, there is nothing wrong in concept with the show delivering a message aimed squarely at the fandom about how we act as fans and how we should act; the problem there is that it feels more like the show makers venting about the fandom than actually, constructively saying anything about it. By itself it was just a meh episode for me, and I still stand by my earlier conclusion that it is such a divisive episode that there is no one right way to feel about it, whether one loves, hates, or just doesn't care for that episode; however, this episode's existence does bring down "Fame and Misfortune" quite a bit, since it was a far better handling of how the show should and can critique the fandom while still having plenty of positive things to say about it. Were the passengers oftentimes too exuberant, clingy, or nosy in their adoration of the princesses, especially Twilight? Sure, but the worst their behavior got was awkward to cringey, and they never treated Twilight or her family like assholes or jerks as so many ponies in "Fame and Misfortune" treated Twilight and her friends. They also had a better excuse for their behavior in that they thought from the get-go that the princesses were there as a part of the cruise specifically to see them, meaning they would never think of treating them like this in regular, day-to-day life; now, as a brony, while I would argue that going to a con doesn't give one license to just leave your brain and good sense behind and treat con guests however you want, there is an expectation at cons that celeb guests are there to see fans, unlike say if you randomly encounter a celeb in real life at a store or restaurant. Once these passengers were explicitly told by Twilight that she could use some space and time to be with her family, they were very respectful of her wishes and realized that they'd been misled by Iron Will. Once again the overall message directed at the fandom was that just because you're a fan of someone doesn't mean you should feel entitled, no matter what the circumstances are, to butt too much into their business, even if they're taking time to hang out with you, but it was delivered and executed so much better in this episode than it was at all in "Fame and Misfortune." Honestly this isn't even that different from how he behaved in the actual episode... The most obvious stand-in among these passengers, of course, was Star Tracker, and I'm even more mixed in my feelings about him than I am the passengers as a whole. For starters, I couldn't figure out whether this guy was supposed to be a teenager or an adult (I'm leaning towards the former but still, not sure), and whether he's one or the other does put his behavior into a different context. Also, while by the end of the episode we realized that he too was, overall, just a well-meaning pony who was really excited to see Twilight, the delivery in some of his humor was... odd. Like, my best guess is that the writers wanted to make it seem like he was just a really, really awkward pony, largely for the sake of humor. The problem, however, is that he does things like (1) keep invading Twilight's personal space WAYYYYYYY too much, (2) awkward gestures like continually biting his lip around Twilight or combing back his mane, and (3) talking with a very odd tone in his voice that his behavior ultimately came off for much of the episode as less awkward and more... creepy, really, especially in a sexually stalker-ish kind of way. Again, I really don't think that that was the intent of the character, but for me, that's simply what he came off as for much of the episode. Also, his freakout from Twilight stepping on his hoof was WAY too over-the-top. No offense Star Tracker, but frankly, ya acted kind of like a pussy in all that; I mean dear Lord, my mom doesn't flip out that much from someone stepping on her foot! Seriously man, NUT UP!!! I'm not even one to usually say that, but sheesh, grow a pair! Thankfully he was pretty cool by the end of the episode (though his standing up for Twilight to Iron Will felt a little forced, and I never really dug his voice actor; I couldn't figure out if it was an actual VA doing a bad, awkward teenager/obsessed fan voice or an actual fan who just wasn't very good at voice acting). Overall, as far as meta-stand ins for the fandom go, Star Tracker and the other passengers here, while not perfect in their delivery, were a significant step above the incredibly hostile, angry, and at times downright cruel crowds that Twilight and her friends encountered in "Fame and Misfortune," and in that respect they felt like they were a part of delivering a far more helpful and constructive message to the fandom than the latter were. This, however, will forever and always be terrifying Besides all of these players, there were plenty of other things that caught my attention in this episode for both better and worse. Finally getting to see an episode featuring a zeppelin the entire time was pretty awesome, and the design of the airship here was sweet. The one thing that bugged me with it was how the passage of time and distance seemed to work; the tour scene in particular was bizarre in that Iron Will seemed to point out locations in a matter of minutes that should be hundreds of miles apart from each other, and there's no way the ship was moving fast enough to get to those that quickly (hell, his pointing out Canterlot second on the tour was downright confusing considering they TOOK OFF from Canterlot). I get that that was largely because the show had to be fit into 22 minutes, but still, it was an odd flaw all the same. Some of the activities, particularly barrel riding over Neighagara Falls and Shining Armor's boat race, were hilarious, though I will say it's a shame that we didn't get to see a full scene of the actual Frozen North Stars. The one thing about that scene that bugged me was that Twilight's family didn't seem to consider at first that she'd be upset that she missed literally the one thing she'd wanted to do with all of them more than anything else the entire trip, but again, that's a minor nitpick. Getting a pretty even dosage of day and night scenes was pretty cool and unusual as well, as were the sheer number of settings in this whole episode. All in all, while not a flawless episode, this was still a very exceptional Season 7 episode and, especially for all of the new elements it had like getting to see more of Twilight's parents, a delight to watch on the whole! We've only got 4 episodes left everypony, and I've got a feeling they're going to be rather delightful (and please, while I'm on the subject, don't watch the early episode leaks so that we can support the official DHX releases of them, or if you do, please don't spoil them for anyone else). That's all I've got for ya everypony, until next time, this is Batbrony signing off. I'm off!!! *cue dramatic exit* This is what Spike gets for doing nice things
  6. I am sorry, but I just love iron will, and need a place to explode it all out feel free to discuss anything about iron will here HAVE SOME SPAGHETTI! dat physique.. dat flank.. CROWNS AND WINGS FOR EVERYONE!!
  7. guys gotta new metal track im working on for my side album
  8. I noticed that a lot of fanart treats Iron Will like a villain. Although he was technically the antagonist of his episode, antagonist is not synonymous with "bad guy". What I understand is that he taught Fluttershy how to be more assertive (exactly like she asked him to), then Fluttershy misinterpreted some of his lessons and became a jerk because of that. In the end, he shows that he is a very honest businessman who cares about his customers more than profits when he refunds Fluttershy despite the fact that he could easily claim that his lessons were perfect, and she caused all the problems by herself. There is very little about him that is bad, and yet fan and official art often places Iron Will alongside the likes of Flim and Flam (Who are unapologetic scammers), Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon (Remorseless bullies), and even Nightmare Moon, Discord, and Chrysalis! His only "faults" are not being clear enough in his instructions (Which the Mane 6 have been guilty of in a few episodes), and wanting payment for his services. Does he really deserve his "bad guy" reputation? Here are some examples of Iron Will being depicted as a bad guy: - Iron Will is apparently "Lawful Evil". - Bonus points for deciding that wild creatures are villains for defending or feeding themselves. - This one is an official poster showing all of the antagonists and Iron Will. - A flash game starring the villains of the show. Iron Will is helping them out.
  9. I really love this crack ship for some reason. I have no valid reason why beyond a cute fanfic I read lol.
  10. Based this off a wonderfully cute and funny crackfic Obabscribbler read
  11. Preview for Friends Forever #10.
  12. If anyone has anything to say about my pony version of this song, tell me what you think, what I can improve on, or if you want to comment on it, feel free to do so.
  13. Hey guys, Blue Blood here again, and I've brought another Pony version of a The Megas song. Today's song is inspired by The Haystack Principle from the History Repeating: Red album. Today's pony is Fluttershy, and her song is based off the episode "Putting Your Hoof Down." I wonder how much backlash I'll get for that. The italic lyrics is Twilight talking to Fluttershy, as if she was giving her a therapy lesson. Enjoy. This is not my home It's where I'm locked away To keep the bully From breaking out This is not who I am You'll never see me Behind this bully's face These are in my hooves The sorrows of my victims Why did I agree to this? Would you believe This isn't me New Fluttershy Isn't who I am I'm not a bad mare I was just born this way No matter what I do I can't help but harm those dear to me And there's no way Out of this chaos Well, anything else? I don't blame them I even scare myself Built to bully seems to Be detrimental to my health Even worse than before He was on his way To collect his bits I couldn't face him So I ran away I just want to be alone Would you believe This isn't me New Fluttershy Isn't who I am I'm not a bad mare I was just born this way No matter what I do I can't help but harm those dear to me And there's no way Out of this chaos I'm sorry to hear But we gotta fix you more Let those last cries out of you Do it now! How can I take off these horns? That is your face, you can't take back the fear you have brought How can I clean off my hooves? Those are your hooves, you can't take back the damage you have caused How can I turn off this power that controls me? You control who you are How can I redeem myself? Control the Iron Will If that's all I do, then I'll control the Will! I'm not a bad mare I was just born this way No matter what I do I can't help but harm those dear to me And now there's a way Out of this chaos!
  14. Should Iron Will appear in future episodes? Also, is he a good guy or bad guy? I think he's a good guy, if overtly agressive, and he should really get another episode. If a one dimensional bully like Trixie can get another episode, the Hulk Hogan of the pony world should get one too
  15. Inspired by the assertiveness rhymes taught to Fluttershy by Iron Will, a couple members of her fanclub decided to, with your help, yes you, carry forth this sacred tradition. Come, and post your assertive rhymes far any and all occasions. And remember, kids, Fluttershy says
  16. Hello friends, My name is Iron Will; and today is the first day for you, yes you, to ask me questions! So ask away, Iron Will would love to hear from fans on here!
  17. So the Lightning Dust/Suri thread got me thinking, and I realized that each of the Mane 6 has had a personal antagonist in an episode, except for Rarity (who's had two IMO). Which of them is your favorite?
  18. Pinkie and Rarity seem to put him purely in monster territory, but it really isn't that simple. It can't even be simply chalked up to bad advice as they claim. As a passive person myself and as someone who's read self-help books about assertiveness Fluttershy's reaction was perfectly normal. I read that people who are first learning to be assertive tend to bypass assertiveness entirely to aggressiveness in an attempt to not backtrack into passivity. And, me personally, I'm the same way. When I get mad enough to actually speak up I tend to get nastily aggressive instead of assertive. And Iron Will wasn't even that bad of a creature to begin with. He holds seminars to help ponies be more assertive. He offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee which he KEEPS. He does yell at Fluttershy and act like he's going to beat her up if she doesn't pay, but the second she politely yet assertively tells him she's not satisfied, so she's not paying, he backs off and then tries to bargain with her for a little money. When she again turns him down he not only politely leaves without giving her more trouble, he even decides that 'No means no' is a good saying and he's going to use it in his next workshop. So really I feel his character seemed akin to a used car salesman, but he was a decent guy at heart. Him getting in Fluttershy's face was probably at first just him not being passive and shy. Do we even know if all those rhymes Fluttershy kept spouting were his sayings, or ones she made up herself?
  19. (Not too grimdark but I added the tag there because is kinda dark and disturbing. I adapted elements from the Early Batman movies and the most recent ones, along with the Animated Series. Was inspired since MareDoWell should also have a spot of sorts, and she isn't one of the 6 I might add. Work in progress, if you like it, I will write more on it. Critique appreciated it.) UNDISCLOSED AREA: 5:35 AM She did not know how she got there, did not know how she got strapped on a surgical table in a basement of sorts, nor how much time has transpired. Not even the smell of rotten flesh around her could keep her from trying to put everything together and how she ended up in this predicament. She only knew one thing for certain however. She was in here...with HER. She was near. She was close. SHe was going to come and do unforgivable things to her any time now. No time to think about how she got here, it was time to try and escape. But how? Would she try and scream? Would anypony hear her? How about try the harnesses on her hooves? No good. She was securely strapped and ready for whatever horrors that crazy pink bitch was about to do to her. Unless...her magic! She was a unicorn, even though she never used it for things other than the simplest of things, she could at least try and undo the harnessess on her just concentrate, concentrate... Nothing. Not even a fizzle or spark out of her horn. Why? Was it something she did to he so she could not have any means of escaping? What else will she do once she comes down here once more? Speak of the Nightmare. "Well, well, well...awake aren't we?" No, not now. Not here. Not HER. "You have been a very naughty pony, yes you had...Miss De Lis." "Why are you doing this? What have I done to you?" A hard smack on her cheek shut her up. Only a yelp was the only thing that came of her lips as she felt the hard hoof on her delicate face. No one has ever struck her even once in her entire life, not even her parents. There is a first time for everything so they say. In the dark a pair of sky blue eyes glared at her like blue flames trying to consume her very soul. Then a pink face appeared in the light provided by the lamp on the ceiling, contrary to what the eyes were shooting at her, the pony on top of her had a sinister grin that could only be matched by that of Nightmare Moon herself. No, this was even worse than the queen of darkness could ever provide. This completely terrified her. "Did I say you could speak Miss De Lis? No I didn't. See, this is why you are down here and not UP there with Fancypants and all the snotty ponies right? Right." Fleur De Lis only whimpered her eyes red with exhaustion and crying for hours to end. She didn't remember doing so however and only now realized that she has been sleeping all this time. That was it, she was drugged. Her memory retracted to hours, no, DAYS being down here, dazed and confused and crying, crying and longing for anypony that could come and rescue her from this maniacal pink terror. Said psycho pony straddled her on the table all of the sudden, her face inching close to the famous socialist unicorn. "Tell me, have you ever danced with the Nightmare under the pale moonlight?" "Uh...uh..." "I always say that to all my see, it just makes me comfortable when I'm about to do my you like cupcakes by any chance?" "P-please..." "You don't? Oh, well we will see about that...won't we?" A glimmer shone on Fleur De Li's eyes as a sharp kitchen knife was brandished on the hooves of the monster. The pink pony smiled a toothy smile and licked the blade being cautious not to let it cut her equally bright pink tongue. She then brought it to De Lis' cheek. And began slicing away. THE MYSTERIOUS MAREDOWELL: THE CASE OF PINKAMENA DIANE PIE CHAPTER ONE: SHE WHO LAST LAUGHS... MareDoWell was taking this in stride. In fact, she was taking more than well after the descriptive way Mayor Iron Will explained her to latest case they were working on. After every other disappearance of significant ponies in Manehattan, Ponyville, and even Canterlot, there was always something that connected them to a certain pony left in the crime scene. A cupcake. A cupcake baked with the utmost care and topped with the most tantalizing frosting and showered with sprinkles decorating its innocence. Only that these cupcakes weren't baked with the usual ingrdients you could use to bake them. The pony vigilante tried not to recall what forensics found in said cupcakes after being examined. Needless to say, not a single guard ever tried to even eat said baked goods from stores after finding out what were inside these ones. The one guard who made a mistake of biting into one at the first scene of crime of these events was hospitalized for weeks. His stomach is still pumped every now and then to prevent any residue from said dangerous foodstuffs. MareDoWell's thoughts were stopped abrubtly as the Mayor slapped a file on his desk, then opened to reveal the assailants latest victim's file, complete with profile shots and aftermath photos of how the guards found her after her ordeal with the pink sadist that lasted for over two weeks. "Her face..." The vigilante said, trying not to look away. "Not only her face," the Minotaur added, "but she is also being treated for psychological stress and other symptoms due to food poisoning and brainwashing. We are grateful that this time we did not found this pony in pieces like in past cases however. Pinkamena was...merciful enough this time around." "Like the times when she simply left her close friends in near comas?" "Exactly. It seems Miss Pie only decimates her victims if they are not sought enough by being, well, popular as one might say. Perhaps Miss De Lis reminded her of her close friend Miss Rarity, whom I heard once visited Canterlot and befriended Fancypants and his cohort Fleur De Lis at some point. We find this to be a peculiar coincidence." "What did the forensic lab scientist said of the poison?" "Miss Zecora found traces of Poison Joke among other hallucigens that this pony has used on her victims while torturing them in a variety of ways. Their blood samples also came out positive in hepatitis for some reason." "Perhaps the side effect of said poison?" "Maybe so." Iron Will said, growing more stern by the minute. MareDoWell took a look at another photo from the victim's body and noticed something even more disturbing if not a bit egotistical from the aggresor's side. "So she carves her name on the backs of her victims." "Indeed. She did so with her first target years ago, when we found that pony tied up in a lasso and hanging upside down from her legs inside a barn. At least it gave Miss Applejack or anypony in her property an alibi when Mayor Mare's authorities arrived at the scene." "But when they got there Pinkamena was already gone from town." "Yes." Iron Will chewed on his cigar as he stared into the wallpanel glass that gave him a clear view of Manehattan and its statue of liberty positioned far in her own little island a few miles away from the city. He turned sharply looking at the vigilante with a determined look on his face. "You want me to find more about her than what your people could find don't you." "It might make better in your pursuit to nab her. This little pink monster has eluded us in every single turn, escaped through routes we never even heard of and has even ponies on her side. Powerful ponies. Its a wonder the Shadowbolts haven't taken on an offer by her just yet." "The Shadowbolts don't barter with psychopaths." "Not yet. In any case, go to Ponyville and see what her friends can tell you that they neglected to inform us. I have a feeling a greater power is in the works than just our deranged party pony by herself." "I'll do what I can. In the meantime keep our city safe." The Mayor turned back to the glass and didn't bother to say bye. By the time he fixated his attention to the view of the city she was already gone. He looked at the moon and stared at it for a few minutes before resuming his labor as the highest authority in a place ruled by chaos. *** The vigilante galloped through rooftops and glided using her modyfied cape from one building to another and at times, her grappling hook for taller ones and skycrappers. Before she ventured in her not so called vacation to the backwater town, she needed to consult someone. A pony who like her dwelled in the shadows and was under the direct service of the Lunar services of Equestria as the most powerful and technological advanced mercenaries Equestria ever known. They were considered a myth after a certain pegasus told the story of how the goddess of the night tried to goad her into joining them in a dream like setting. Truth could be far from just a high tale however but this gave them the edge needed to be left alone in their operations without ever being caught nor persecuted when something major occurred. They trotted among the citizens of the city, even held jobs in high places and lower ones, they were everywhere and chances were that if you were talking to one of them you wouldn't ever take notice of who they were unless they wore a familiar flying suit and trademark goggles. Ones which the Captain of their group was wearing at the very moment MareDoWell arrived on top of a business corporation while he stood atop a stone gargoyle, looking stoic as ever and his black feathered wings flared to take in the winds of their goddess' night. His goggles, slit to make him look as to have an angry glare, glowed bright red within his eyes. MareDoWell casually trotted up to him when she arrived and stood right beside the gargoyle the Shadowbolt leader was standing upon. "What can we do for you this time, vigilante." "What do you know about Pinkamena." "Everything." "What can you tell me." "Nothing." "You want bits for the info is that it." "That is not the reason." The Shadowbolt touched the side of his goggles with hoof and the light emanating from the dimmed until it was gone. He then pulled them up revealing a pair of ruby red eyes and looked down at her from his position. "What is that you are keeping from me, Captain." "There are works greater than a psychopath here, MareDoWell. We are at the ready if we are needed...for the right fee. However we are keeping it under the biggest rug we can find until there is something more than a vigilante dealing with it." "So there is someone or somepony pulling the strings in all this and using the former Element of Laughter as its minion to produce havok then." "Not exactly." The Shadowbolt then placed his goggles back on and shook his mane a few times. "I can tell you that what she is doing is out of her own sheer will. If you want to know more then you know who to ask." With that he jumped and glided a few feet under before pulling himself upwards and rocketing out of view into the night sky leaving a trail of smoke and lightning behind. MareDoWell turned and headed to the opposite direction, towards her own home where she would prepare for the evening's voyage. *** A few minutes later and a few blocks away, she arrived to the building where both her home and lair were housed. The entire building was bought by her months ago after he last secret hideout was destroyed when she had her last encounter with a powerful nemesis. The residents there lived without suspicion of her double life as an engineer and a vigilante and did not asked everytime she was absent from more than days at times. MareDoWell grabbed a paor of saddlebags filling it with the bare necessities and then headed to the rooftop, where she stood on the edge and jumped towards the night sky, her cape unfolding into a glider which she manuevered all the way to Ponyville. The first location she spotted was the vast farmland belonging to the Apple clan, Sweet Apple Acres. She glided past rows and rows of apple trees until she landed near the barnhouse where the family was housed. Shifting her cape back to normal structure she advanced towards the house being wary of the family's dog, Winona, who while she could not be of any threat, would bark endlessly waking up ponies she really did not had time to deal with, or quite possibly, alert some sort of security personnel the family might've hired after the Pinkamena incident. So far, no dog nor anypony who was present until she reached the doorway. MareDoWell looked upwards and decided to climb onto an open window instead of going trough the front door. If anything, the eldest of the family, Granny Smith, might still be awake or sleeping on the living room while their radio was on. Getting out suction cups to her hooves, the vigilante started her short climb to the window until she eventually reached it, then took a peek checking the inside of it. To her luck, this was Applejack's room, who seemed to be curled up on her bed covered in blankets with her back towards the window. MareDoWell entered the window silently and took off the cups, getting them back inside the saddlebags. She entered tthe room silently, not wanting to disturb the sleeping pony, but as she neared her, she heard the distinctive click of a firearm and looked to the side where Applejack was holstering a rifle pointed straight at her head. "Now let's be all clear here," AJ said, her gaze as cold as ice "Ah know you ain't none of of us cause we did that Mare Do Well gig just for' ah doubt you are HER why don't ya just get out where ya came from and we all agree this never happened?" "I am here for answer Miss Applejack." MareDoWell stated, "And I know who you are talking about. Believe me when I say I am here to help bring her back. As your friend." "Ah don't know what nonsense you are tellin' girl" Applejack retorted, still pointing the rifle at the vigilante's head. "Now last time, git lost or you be having a serious case of head detachment." She cocked the rifle to state she was meaning it this time. MareDoWell did not moved however, seeing a trail of sweat coming down the farmer's brow. "If you are going to shoot me...then you better have good aim. I am getting the answers I need wheter you provide them willingly or not Applejack." "Ah warned ya, now ahm gonna-" Applejack suddenly turned to see a shadow passing by on the darkness, realizing it was just a mouse that seemed lost within her room, she did not noticed that MareDoWell already got into action as soon as she averted her eyes away. In just a fraction of a secong her rifle was knocked away by a dart in the form of a horseshoe, one of many defensive techniques the vigilante used. Applejack let out a gasp startled but when she got a hold of what was going on, MareDoWell was on her, holding her down her own bed with her eyes glaring down the heir to Sweet Apple Acres. Applejack did not offer resistance, rather she just stared at her assailant serious for a moment, hen frowned, her eyes beginning to show traces of tears coming. ALl this happening before the rifle landed wit ha heavy clunk on her wooden floor. "Now tell me all you know about Pinkamena Diane Pie." "Don't you call her that!" Applejack erupted in an emotional fit suddenly "Pinkie's not that monster! She is a kind hearted girl, ah know she is..." "Listen Applejack...your friend has cost much grief to many ponies, even as far as committing murder. She will not stop unless you help me bringing her to justice, I know she started here, and I also know she did something horrible to you. Help me set things right before its too late for all of us in Equestria." At that moment the door of the bedroom bolted open and a large frame galloped inside. Without seeing him, MareDoWell knew who was inside, Applejack's older sibling, Big Macintosh. Before he even got close to aid his sister, Applejack managed to raise one hoof to stop him right on his tracks. The stallion halted just as she asked, looking at her confused and overly tired after being wakened by the noise he heard. "Its alright Big Mac, ahm fine. Go an' tend to Applebloom 'fore she wakes...please." Big Mac tried to protest, but once AJ's eyes were fixated on him he just sighed and headed back out her room, closing the door and to do as told. After it was safe to talk once more, Applejack began telling all she knew before the mayhem got into Ponyville. *** The ball of the Ninth Moon was a party that invited some of the biggest names in Equestria. Some could say said names would even rank as high as the Royal Princesses themselves. The mayor of Manehattan had warned the city not to bring much attention with Pinkamena on the loose, but all the advise given was left ot deaf ears as the high class of the city resumed their lives of luxury and prejudice. Of course, all of that was soon to be halted in the worst possible ways imaginable. A sudden opening of the main doors slamming against its hinges made the entire crowd silent, turning their attention to the sole exit as a pink pony came inside, her magenta mane neatly pressed on one side of her face and wearing a leather jacket along with shades which covered half of her light blue eyes. Pinkamena trotted casually a few steps before stopping and staring at them all. "Gentleponies, lets broaden our minds...Scoots?" Another pony wearing the same kind of jacket albeit a pegasus entered right in cue, carrying a boombox which she immediately turned on. A track playing filled the hall as a song performed by Sapphire Shore was heard. Pinkamena made a fancy strut at the beat of the tune while pushing away rather rudley any other pony of the high class community away. Before any other pony who attended the ball dared do anything, more of Pinkamena's henchmen appeared, each with a different sort of weapon ranging from firearms to blades on their hooves. Pinkamena then proceeded, dancing like a mad pony around the guests, each she pointed with a sharp blade she brought and with each terrified pony she approached, she smiled even more. The henchemen wach started thrashing the ball, pushing the hostages closer into a frightened group while paintings and decorations each worth large amounts of wealth were simply being destroyed. Pinkamena finally stopped at the pony she looked from the rest, one not from her native country and famous for taking the most glamorous photos in all the world, not just Equestria. "Ah...Photo Finish." The world famous photographer squeaked as her name was mentioned, her eyes behind her glasses dilated fully as the reflection of the mad mare grew closer to her. Pinkamena simply slapped her companion for the night with a single backhoof, reeling him unconsious and with the other, caressed Photo Finish's face carefully with the edge of the knife. "Tell me...when you take a you capture ponies' souls?" "Huh, vat is thiz nonzense! Of course I don't!" Vat dou vant from me?" "Oh, I still need to figure that out Finishing Photopony...I must simply take you to my place first though, way too many ponies here to let them watch me work on my masterpiece..." "Y-your what?" Photo Finish said, not sure if she wanted to find out. Pinkamena smiled as her eyes grew wider at the sheer terror she was receiving from the photographer. Blade pointing at Photo FInish's chine she spoke in a playful tone. "Tell me, do you want to know how I got these scars? Its a funny story." "Vat scars, you seem fine!" "Oh sorry, I meant the scars you might me, it'll be a riot. Its gonna be a party..." ***
  20. When did people came up with this? I see alot of people saying hes a villain(minor one like trixie) but I never understood why. I understand Gilda Flim Flam but Iron Will? All what he did Is teach Fluttershy how to stand up for herself. Its not his fault she over-used it.
  21. I just read this fic and it inspired me to write about why I think Fluttershy dosent get enough respect in the fans. 1: she is weak, but she is capable of some really extraordinary feats. She scolded a dragon and stared at a cockatrice. 2: when it comes to her goals, she is as determined as rainbow dash. You never hear her say: 'hey guys lets just give up and go home.' 3: In one my favorite episodes ever, iron will turned her into a monster, but she was able to realize that she was a monster and be assertive in the right way. Not many ponies can do that. 4: in hurricane fluttershy, she was driven to tears and self-pity, but she overcame her feelings of worthlessness and saved cloudsdale! 5: She has done a lot of really cool things without bragging about them. think. When rainbow dash does something amazing, like save the wonderbolts or do a rainboom, she brags about it to everyone and is very boastful. just think about The mysterious mare do well episode. she is bragging in everyponies faces about it. Fluttershy is one of the most humble ponies in the show. she saved all of ponyville from a dragon, saved cloudsdale from a drought, and saved the CMC's lives. she has never once boasted about it. 6: She often sells herself short. She never takes credit for something that was done. there has never been a parade for her, never been an award for her, but she seems fine with that. 7: she keeps falling down but she keeps getting back up. This is the part of her that reminds me most of my life. This reason is mostly mine, but i feel i can relate to her life the most. (faced with many obstacles in daily life) You can tell by now that she is my favorite pony. And I think, besides applejack, she is the most underestimated pony. What do you think of this majestic, but determined creature? and yes, she is the perfect mare, and only the best stallion (mare? I dunno.) deserves her. (Like big macintosh!) aww, they already love each other, see? <3 <3 <3.
