  1. Hey, don't look at me, this was @Hierok's idea. This is basically like the Mega Thread "Answer The Question Above You" but with a twist: you're only allowed to post love/romance/shipping questions and asnwers! *wink wink* Just follow the same rules as the original thread, just make sure your questions are love related! I'll go first: Who is your pony crush?

    Hearts and Hooves Day Trivia.

    Welcome to the Hearts and Hooves Day Trivia here on the MLP Forums. Unlike most previous trivia challenges that were dedicated to specific characters, this one is focused on a special day that is well known in Equestria. In our world, we refer to this occasion as Valentine's Day. Amongst ponies, it is known as Hearts and Hooves Day. I know what you're probably thinking right now. You think you're going to be given a series of questions that revolve around the obvious couple of Friendship is Magic, Shining Armour and Princess Cadance, right? Yet you'd be wrong about that. I mean, they are a part of the occasion yet there are other couples who are also a part of this so they deserve their due as well. Whether you're involved in a relationship or are single, you can take part in this trivia in order to earn yourself a badge. The questions here are taken from Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls, and are focused purely on the romance side of things. The comics are not being included here as apparently not everyone has read them so including them would lead to confusion. So who do you send your answers to this time? I think @Princess Cadance would be appropriate enough. She is the Princess of Love after all and this special day does resonate with her even if she isn't its poster pony. Yes, please send your answers to her. You do have the standard four days after this thread is posted and you are allowed to work with others. Hints for most questions will be provided when necessary as well. Again, send your answers to @Princess Cadance. How many questions? Will eight and a bonus suffice? That's what you've got so no complaints please. Q1. What do the CMC do for Big Macintosh in 'Hearts and Hooves Day'? Q2. Why was Twilight upset about her brother's marriage? Q3. Cranky Doodle Donkey and Matilda's wedding had several problems that weren't their doing. Name at least two of these problems. Q4. Though they did not become a couple, what do Big Macintosh and Marble Pie have in common? Q5. Big Macintosh had to compete with someone to win the heart of Sugar Belle. Who was it? Q6. In 'The Break-Up Breakdown', what caused romance troubles between Big Macintosh and Sugar Belle? Q7. Sunset Shimmer and Flash Sentry were once an item though the former did so for what reason? Q8. In Legend of Everfree, what did Gloriosa Daisy do that prevented Twilight Sparkle and Timber Spruce from having their special moment? Bonus. In the 'Text Support' short of Equestria Girls, who are the three individuals who can help Twilight Sparkle deal with what Timber Spruce sent her? Also, what happens in each of their respective scenarios? (Note: For the second part, a good explanation for each scenario is needed.)

    mlp fim fan art Valentine's

    Hello, from cloudsdale in lovures lane of magic in the air she has love for everypony whatever their gender might be enjoy it well because with all this violence in the world we all need a Rainbooming love from everyone's heart and that is where my Valentine's character fits in enjoy the artwork !
  4. So I have been thinking quite a lot lately. Actually, when am I NOT thinking about something? Well, this time I have been thinking of something more specific, that thing is love. What? Love? How incredibly unlike me to be thinking of such a subject! Yeah, it is a little strange I suppose. I do not have much of a social life at all. The social life that I do have is on the internet, mostly on these forums. I suffer from severe Aspergers Syndrome and crippling anxiety so I have an incredibly difficult time meeting new people, not to mention getting to know them well. Normally, I am a loner. I live with my dad and I usually just stay in my room and I do not leave my home much. It doesn't sound like much of a life, but I am happy with it. I get SSI due to my problems and I try to live within my means and keep things simple. I like a simple lifestyle. Anyways, I really cannot live alone. Due to my many problems, there is just no way that I can and I will fully admit it. I was born with these problems and all I can do is just accept them and accept myself and just try to be happy. This has made me think though, about the future. I tend to do that a lot, thinking of the future. Probably not a good idea in my case but I do it anyways. Because of this thinking marathon, I have recently become very scared of the future. I have tons of anxiety over many things, but this is a feeling that I have not felt before. I fear that I may be completely alone in the future. Why is this? Well, it is because of my problems that I have mentioned. I cannot drive due to my problems and I do not get out much and even if I did, I live in a small town. I have thought of something more though, that is love. Love is something that I have not thought about much in my life. I have had only one relationship and it did last for a decent while, but it ended on a bad note. Why am I thinking of love? I honestly do not know the exact reason, but I have realized that it is something that I truly want. Because of my awkward wording, this may be difficult to explain but I do want love in my life. I want to find my special somepony. I truly mean this. I want someone that I can say 'I love you' to and for them to love me back, despite all of my shortcomings. I want someone that will hold my hand and hug me, and me do the same for them. This is where my complications come in. I am incredibly shy and socially awkward. I also have very low self esteem, basically the self esteem of a rock. Which is weird because I will admit that I am a good person for what I am, but I am weird like that. How will I meet anyone majorly new to even have a chance? If we develop something, how will we see each other? I have so many worries and questions that honestly it makes me cry. My limitations keep me from doing much. I cannot travel and like I have said I am very socially awkward. I know that these things take a lot of time and it does not happen instantly, you just cannot force it and I realize that. I just feel so worried about it all and the future. Maybe this worry is unjustified but I am very weird like that. Does any of this make sense? The only real way I will find anyone is online. I have made a small step by making a post in the forums here, but I am unsure if that will do anything. I worry that if I find anyone, what if they live really far away? It is stuff like that, that depresses me. I don't know what I will do at that point. Will they come to me? Am I worth that? I probably would not be able to come to them, but if I could, I absolutely would. Who knows, maybe they would come to me. I know it is a lot to ask, but if we truly love each other, then they may not have a problem doing so. I am very serious about wanting real love and I want something like this to work, but I know that I need to give it time, a lot of time. Hopefully someday I will find my special somepony. That is what I need to have, hope, not doubt. I get depressed very easily so I am vulnerable to doubt and fear, but I just need to have hope. One day, I will find that special somepony, I will. It is just keeping this spirit up that is the challenge. Thank you for reading if you did. This was very confusing to read I bet but my wording can be weird. It makes me feel really nice letting these thoughts out and I am glad I was able to share them with you all.

    I love you because

    I felt like making this after playing 'I hate you because'. Just say what you like about the above user. Example: I love you because you made this thread. Begin!
  6. Well, this used to be a tier list and now I'm turning into a list of my top 5 husbandos. A tier list was hard to keep up with, plus I wanted to elaborate more on why I love certain guys from video games (yes, all of them will be) so much (and I wanted to add new ones). Well here it is I suppose, because I'm so bad with introductions. Before I get into it, I'll give honorable mentions to the TF2 Medic for just his voice and his personality (some of the fanart helps him also), Captain Gordon for being my first husbando and also being such a goof , and Guzma because he's our boy and I have to admit he's kind of cute :3! Now onto the list. 5. Fernando I was initially going to just put him as an honorable mention, but I decided denying myself the opportunity to talk about Fernando was... being cruel to myself. So if you don't know where he's from, he's a frontline champion from Paladins: Champions of the Realm, and he's among the best designed champions in the game I think, but this is more about his visual and personal appeal. I low key love him. The fan-art I put above here is kind of an example of his physical appeal, if that says anything. I could link a picture of him in game here, but really is heavy armor going to make a guy look better? There's a reason why Paladins players PROTESTED when his avatar put his helmet on. His face... Is just a thing of beauty. Just how could you not admire such features? Most men would be jealous, and well, "men" like me? I'm in love. I don't even know how to describe how he has such a kissable face, but HE JUST DOES LOOK AT IT! I think I'm already melting... But he only gets fifth because he's got a pretty bad ego problem.. 4. Marth Yes, a character from a franchise I never even played . His smash appearances were more than enough for me. There's quite reason he's a popular choice as a husbando to many of my variety. He may be a bit feminine in a appearance to a degree, but in a way that just makes him insanely cute. His personality is also one that I find to be attractive in a way. Sure it doesn't get too many points for being a bit patriotic for my tastes, he has a sort of quiet strength about him. I couldn't really pinpoint it until looking him up on the Fire Emblem wiki. He puts his responsibilities before his personal life, and it makes it hard for him to really get past some of the tragic events in his life. That's something I can't exactly relate to, but I find... attractive about him. His own sense of moral obligation and the strength he has for being able to suffer mostly in silence. It's admirable. But he's only fourth because of a couple of things. He has too much pride in his country and he is a bit too regal for my tastes. I'd rather have a more humble man than one of royalty and nobility such as Marth. 3. Soldier: 76 I will admit I only gained interest in him after the whole controversy surrounding his sexual orientation. But, that was really only because that's when I BEGAN to notice him for what he is. Actually among the best characters from the entire game, with an amount of depth I didn't initially realize. I mean the guy faked his own death to expose those who caused the collapse of the Overwatch task force, literally went AGAINST A GOVERNMENT AT ONE POINT HE SWORE TO PROTECT OUT OF HIS OWN MORALITY, and he somehow hid his relationship with his ex-boyfriend, Vincent, for so long while also hiding a secret pain that was eating away at him that more than likely began with the relationship... I am amazed with this. Seriously, this is something. I'd normally avoid men that could be my freaking dad on this subject (well, although his age isn't revealed, my guess for it isn't far from my dad's in real life...), but he's got so much depth, and he aged unbelievably well... Seriously he looks better now with his white hair than he did with blonde hair! He'd probably be the only man of his age I could remotely love in that sense, and that's something. 2. Axton "Wow... Just wow... " I've had my eye on Axton for a while now, and I have to say I've only gotten more attracted to him sense. This specific piece of fanart may not be the best representation of it, (I couldn't find much better that wasn't kind of icky or a crossover) but he's probably the most attractive looking guy on this entire list. He also has this air about him that I just can't describe with any other statement than "he doesn't give a f***." Being that he was once a Dahl soldier that left because he was objected to their objective even though it put his relationship with his ex-wife (who was also his commanding officer) on the line, he'll kill anyone if you pay him enough, and he even mocks his enemies in some of his voice lines... Another thing I like about him is the way he talks to his turret. I, no joke, have daydreams at times about him talking to ME that way, just as an example of such a daydream (pretty short): "*Insert my real name here* what would I do without you?" *Intense blushing, and tearing up while I just think 'kiss me now!'" Thinking about this, it's really hard for me to believe he isn't number one. But there's only one better and we all know who he is. Axton may be almost the perfect man, though he's got his flaws, of the same variety as Fernando's though not nearly as bad. On the other hand... 1. Luigi Luigi is still definitely number one. He's still my favorite, period. There's just so many reasons why. He's kind of adorkable in his own way, he's a little hot (but nothing like Axton or Fernando), but most of all I feel like he and I are kindred spirits from different universes. I know he's a fictional character, but f*** if I don't love him so much. He's almost always so kind to other people even when they hurt him (MARIO), but he also has shown his capability to fight if he needs to. He's got literally the perfect mustache, but he wears it with such a humble goofiness as only he could. Heck I even dig his hair and he always hides it under his hat. He's just so perfect in a lot of ways. He may not have quite the level of visual appeal as others on this list but he MORE than makes up for it in personality. His kind, but kind of silly and timid nature really grips me on a level that other characters don't. All that must be said here is that I ABSOLUTELY love him. Not on the level that one person loves a specific pony that I won't mention here, but if he were real and I knew him... I'd flirt with him as much as I could ! Well that's the list. Bad with endings too so I'll just cut it here.
  7. Well, I've really been recently thinking a LOT about love. Why? Well, because I've been having the feeling that I need a man to love. A man I can depend on, a steady shoulder to lean on. I know that I'm not the best candidate for a lover, and I never have been. I'm definitely not a looker for sure, and I have my fair share of issues. But here goes, a description of my ideal boyfriend, by how important the specific traits are to me... I know I already posted most of this in a thread before, but I'm going to get into other things I didn't get into there. NECESSARY He has to love me for who I am. I know it's nice to be able to find a guy who also likes my appearance (well my lack of a decent one may make that a little bit of a challenge...), but it's much more important that he is really fine with dating an absurdly skinny nerd that has almost no dexterity, is more than likely autistic, and has anxiety and depression issues. He has to be at least 16 years old at the moment. I don't want to have to deal with parents that are too concerned if they're dating another dude that's more than 5 years older than they are... Even 16 is iffy though... GOOD TO HAVE He and I should share a few interests. My interests include: Cartoons, particularly Steven Universe, MLP, Rick and Morty, and We Bare Bears. Also I'm really enjoying Hazbin Hotel as of now. Video Games, particularly Super Smash Bros., Mario games, Paladins/Overwatch, and Borderlands/Fallout. Tabletop arena games, like Heroclix. I'm developing my own, you know! Science Fiction, including things like Star Trek and the Twilight Zone. Music. I personally played the Tuba in band for years... So you know I'm more than capable (I'm sick...) Pixar movies. I'm sorry, but if you don't like Finding Nemo or Toy Story, you more than likely won't like me. He should respect my space. I'm extremely introverted and at times I just have to be away from people. Even people I'm really close to... He needs to have a good heart. I couldn't date an intolerant jerk, because I love people that love me. It's just the way I work. He's got to be a little bit perverted... Trust me when I say that I'm very much that way... though it's been getting tamer recently. It would be great if his viewpoints were similar enough to mine. I don't want to have an argument about stuff every 5 minutes. I mean it is nice to disagree on a couple of things, but that definitely has its limits. I'll tell you that I'm a bit left on politics and my viewpoints on things are far from conservative. Although I share some viewpoints with conservatives. He needs to be able to start a conversation with me. I have huge issues with starting a dialogue with other people. It helps if he can make me laugh sometimes. I know that I don't have much of a sense of humor, but I like being humored to a degree. He has to have some level of intelligence. I think that I have an IQ of around 135-140, so I'm not sure I could handle a dope well... PREFERRED PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES (Not that important) A few inches taller than me (around 6' maybe). I don't mean to seem racist, but I prefer white men. I had a crush from a video game for a little bit who happens to be black, though. Not overly muscular. or fat. Neither looks that good in my opinion. Yet again, I'll say this isn't too important so... Yeah. I don't have much of a preference for age, but I'd like a man around my age. Like teens or early twenties. So there it is, I guess... I don't know what else to say here, other than I'm still open to the idea of an open relationship, it's not a must anymore I don't think.

  9. Are you in one? Do you want one? How do you feel around other couples? How many have you had? I was in a relationship for five years, but since November of last year, things have been going kinda sour and I just don't feel like we're together anymore, so I basically consider myself single I don't want a relationship right now anyways Sometimes I feel jealous around couples because I miss having what they had I only count three of my relationships since the others were either short or didn't feel like real relationships It's sort of annoying to me now to hear people always talking about them as if nothing else matters! That's actually something I liked about the first three seasons of MLP...it's so friendship focused and there's no romance!
  10. P-Princess Luna asked ME out for a date? How in the world could I say no to that?
  11. Have you been kissed before? I was kissed by a girlfriend I had in fifth grade. It was an experience I cherish to this day. She moved a year after and it really sucked for me. But hey, if any of you girls on the forums want to date me, pm me or something like that.

    Rainbow Dash needs love!

    I just saw the most hateful and ignorant comment about Rainbow Dash. "Rainbow Dash... who gives a f___ about her. She's is the worst pony ever and I don't understand how anyone could even think about liking her. She's such a trash character and needs to be tossed out now!" I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that. Never in my life have I read something so hateful. Show this blasphemer how wrong they are please!

    Do you like driving?

    Just as the title says, "Do you like driving?" I absolutely love driving! I'll drive every chance I get now that I got my permit. Are you comfortable driving? I am very comfortable when I drive, it's like a second nature to me.
  15. So, recently, I have been entering the world of Romance fanfics. I never thought I would enjoy that kind of thing, but I guess I really have a soft spot for sweet love stories. In fact, one fanfic I read, called "Unexpected Confessions," is now my favourite story of all time. I just felt the need to drop it a line. It's an excellent story, and you will have trouble dropping it to do other things. Now that my plug is over, let's move on. ~Introduction: A Conflict~ As I was on FIMfiction, browsing fanfics, I picked up on the traditional argument among shippers. AppleDash, or FlutterDash? What motivates this conflict? They are both adorable couples in their own right. So why do fans of these shippings come to heads so often, unable to enjoy the idea of their opposing ship? ~Dashie is the issue. Right?~ At face value, the answer may seem quite obvious. Obviously, these shippings come into conflict because both feature the same pony, Rainbow Dash. Right? I would argue that no, is the answer. Rainbow Dash is the most shipped of all the ponies. This is a widely known fact. There just seems to be something about Dashie that makes her popular with fanfic writers. Chances are, if you can name a pony (Aside from the universal ships of LyraBon, Derpy Whooves, and Octav3) she has been paired with them, whether male or female. Yet, all of the other shipping groups don't come to grips with the fact that Dashie is in other shippings. Why then is there such a conflict between AppleDash and FlutterDash? If all other Dashie ships accept every other ship, why do these two in particular argue so often? Obviously, the answer is deeper than simply Dashie. ~Wrong! It's deeper than Dashie.~ So, then, if the issue is not Dashie, than what is the problem? Well, to me, it is apparent that the problem lies in an ideological difference. The two shipping groups have different philosophies about love. Fans of FlutterDash believe that opposites attract. They think that ideal relationships should have the ponies involved complement each other. Dashie's strength helps Flutters' weakness. Dashie's confidence is tempered by Flutters' humility. Dashie's impetuousness is held back by Flutters' calmness. Flutters' fear is lessened by Dashie's courage. They think that FlutterDash is magical because their different strengths and weaknesses mean that, as one whole, they can handle any situation thrown at them by drawing on each other. No external conflict can penetrate their bastion of love. Fans of AppleDash are of the mind that Applejack and Rainbow Dash, as very similar individuals, can be much stronger in the face of conflict. As two birds of a feather, AJ and RD know how the other ticks. They know what to expect from each other, and the fact that their strengths are the same means, when facing certain conflicts, they will have the strength of two ponies instead of one. They also have an incredible understanding of each other, able to read each other like a book, sidestepping almost all possibilities of misunderstanding. They know precisely how to comfort one another in rough times. Now, these paragraphs show why the two schools of thought each have merit. But they also have their faults. In the opposites attract relationship, the two ponies share all of their traits. Given their diversity of strengths, they can add to each others' weaknesses. But internal conflict can be a major issue, as their different natures make it difficult to understand each other, and therefore resolve their problems. It can also lead to misunderstanding when a pony simply doesn't get how their special somepony ticks. Within the relationship, they will be at odds with each other, and will not always be stable. This kind of relationship will be an emotional rollercoaster internally. It is strong when an external force threatens it, but does not have structural integrity in its own right. Regarding the birds of a feather philosophy, the issue is that, while the similarity between ponies means that internally, they will have a stable relationship, rarely coming to odds, it also means that where they fall short, they fall really short. If an external conflict strikes which hits the pressure points of the relationship, it can crumble like a sand castle in the rain. Having the same spectrum of strengths and weaknesses means that they can only handle the same problems. If something comes around which attacks a weakness, they are unable to draw on each other, resulting in feelings of inadequacy, causing tension in the relationship, and a longing for that thing which is missing, or lacking. ~So, what does this mean?~ Both relationship types, as we have seen, have their strengths and weaknesses. AppleDash works nicely internally, but similar strengths mean the ponies have similar weaknesses. And when those weaknesses need strength, they have nopony to draw from. At best, the two deficient ponies can hope that they just barely have enough strength to at least be worth half a pony against their opponent. FlutterDash is an emotional rollercoaster, but complementary traits mean that they can draw on each others' strengths when one of them is deficient, forming an unmovable wall against external conflcit. Where does that leave us? It leaves us with the knowledge that neither relationship is inherently functional or dysfunctional. But we also know that their is still plenty of ground to cover regarding where the relationship falls short. I would argue that, given what we've seen above, the ideal relationship will have the ponies not be polar opposites, nor birds of a feather. For a relationship to work the best, there needs to be some shared traits and some different traits. A delicate Balance, which does its best to draw on the two relationship types. And indeed, the best fanfics I've read have focused on finding this middle ground between the two philosophies, where different ponies found out how to accept their differences, and similar ponies learned how to overcome their weaknesses. And I think this middle ground is where the relationships become as functional as possible, and approaching this middle grounds is what makes both pairings attractive for me. Harmony and Balance applies to all things, love included, and seeing ponies approach the golden realm of Harmony in their relationship makes for great reading, whoever you ship. What do you guys think? Which relationship do you think would have its issues resolved easier? Do you think that they are about equal, or that one is superior? Have you noted characteristics about the two philosophies which I haven't covered? Who do you ship? And why? I look forward to reading your schtuff. And make sure to check out my other philosophical meanderings at http://balancebrony.tumblr.com. I can't wait to read your responses everypony!

    What was your first job?

    So, I'm gonna be starting my first job soon as a cashier at a grocery store called Meijer (most of you prob haven't heard of it, it's not in every state just in a few) and I've been wondering...... What was your first job, what did it pay (if you don't mind me asking, feel free not to answer), did you love it, like it, hate it? Was it fun? Was it a good company? Did it suck? How long were you there? Are you still there (some people have the same job for years)? What was your start and end positions? Like I said, I'll be a cashier, not sure how it'll be but I'm thinking it'll be enjoyable (it'll help that I'm an extrovert!) I'm pretty excited about it, the company seems great, I love the store, the employees who I've spoken to have talked highly about it, pay raise is good and it's actually more of a higher end grocery store. (I'm guessing you ponies are picturing it to be a small town, family owned grocery store which it's def not). Also, I start a little higher than minimum wage which is great!
  17. I mean, honestly,the question I (along with other fans) have is, "What's the Difference?" Now, one could point out, that Applejack and Starlight wouldn't use any feminine charm on Spike and would be the kind of characters that would except him for who he is, and be down to earth with him. But I think Trent Osborne (Fellow Fan and Youtuber) said it best in the comments, (which for some odd reason were removed from audio/video on this): Now, he did go on to add more, but again those comments are were removed for some reason. But the overall take from those comments are, just because the show staff has yet to REALLY address this, and with the potential that S9 could be it, we (more than likely) will get the resolution there, and from some odd reason, (just a gut feeling I have), I feel that they will have an episode where Rarity x Spike officially become an item, however it will be done in a very subtle way, in other words, we'll see it happen, but come the following episode, it will be it didn't happen, but we (as fans and viewers) will know it did (I mean when watch the show, the episodes, while remaining in the seasonal timeline/continuity , don't always acknowledge moments from pervious episodes in that season, unless it's a two-parter or necessary , like in "Horse Play"). But despite that, again I ask , "What's The Big Difference"? Because if you're going by age difference, same applies to AJ and Starlight. And also, let's look at it this way, if they wanted to put this Sparity to bed, they would have done so a long time ago, but as you can see from this recent season, it's still as strong as ever. Also, remember this, Lauren Faust wanted to use Spike as our eyes/POV to see how beautiful Rarity was/is, I'm sure she didn't expect this whole Sparity thing to come from it, but yet here we are. So yeah, if you more on this, check out my audiovideo (located in the video fan art section of these MLPForums). But what's you take on it?
  18. I think that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is starting to reach it's end, and still none of the Mane Six has ever been in a romantic relationship with any pony. I'm kinda mad, since I wanted Rainbow Dash to get into a romantic relationship with Soarin.
  19. I'm sure everypony can spare a little of their love for Chrysalis, and I promise she'll be very grateful for the donation. What could possibly go wrong with this?
  20. Just like the title says did you ever have that person or people that got you into a game serious that you now love? my cousin princessofcompassion has gotten me into a lot of good game franchises like the Silent Hill series my favorites being silent hill 1,2,3 and origins she got me into Devil May Cry I really like the first one and will be playing the second and third game at some point she also got me into Dark Stalkers/Vampire Savior in which I purchased the Japanese playstation version Vampire Savior for $8, she got me into the Tales series one of my favorites being Tales of Symphonia and she got me into Harvest Moon more friends of mineral town so who got you into your favorite game franchise(s)? I've been playing videogames since I was pretty much born, was born with a controller in my hand lol, but my first game was Mario I saw my brother/sisters playing so I wanted to give it a try and from the moment I picked up the controller I never put it down and from there I got my own systems and games, but as for other games I found them myself so I could expand my collection and a lot of them ended up being really good like Banjo Kazooie being one of them and many more games and like I said above my cousin introduced me to some awesome games.
  21. Just a random thought I had. I was wondering which personalities are attracted to each other. For example, out of the mane 6 I'm like Rainbow Dash, but out of all ponies I'm more like Scootaloo (I think I'm less arrogant). But if I would date a pony, I would date Rarity...and RD and Rarity are the opposite sides of the spectrum. What do you guys think? What pony are you most like, and who would you date?
  22. Holy cheese and crackers! I'm nearly done with my first actual story! I'm so freaking stoked to share it to you guys and gals and see it go through the meat grinder! You think that I'm kidding lol. Letting Go story link Here is hoping that you enjoy this read as much as I enjoyed writing it. I had to dig really deep to finish this critter, and with only 1 chapter left to go and 67k worth of words, I'm nearly done! Give her a look and tell me on fimfiction what you think! Cover art will be happening very soon, but for now, I will have to deal with the quick feathers and bird thing i made lol.
  23. I recommend opening a new tab and listening to this song while you read. Its one of my favourite classic Brony songs, and evokes a strong nostalgic feeling. Hello, everyone! On this day, all the way back in 2014, I decided to give My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic another chance after realizing I liked Twilight Sparkle and found that I actually enjoyed the show quite a bit. Back then, I was way less mature, more shy and still went to high school. My first time in the fandom was mainly spent listening to Brony music from this playlist on YouTube, as well as watching some videos from the YouTube Brony community. I had some interactions with members of the community as well, but, it was from the comment section on YouTube, so you can kinda guess how that would have turned out, yeah, I kinda embarrassed myself a little there but its all good now! Later that year, I decided to search Google for some communities related to this newfound obsession of mine, and found a few sites that seemed interesting, such as What is a Brony?, Equestria Daily, Bronyland and MLP Forums. Some places I visited didn't have a proper community of their own, or they were more like news websites for the fandom and didn't really seem all that appealing to me and if they did have a community, I didn't really know about it (as was the case with Bronyland and EqD). I created my account here on June 30th, 2014 shortly after browsing the website for a bit and finding that I liked the community here and wanted to start being more involved with the fandom outside of YouTube. I was a little nervous, but, I eventually (cringe warning) made my first post. Back then, I was known as shoyrumaster11, and as you read my first post, you may have noticed that most of my exposure to the fandom came from watching so-called "anti-Brony" videos and trying to figure out how anyone could be so triggered by a simple cartoon on TV. For a good portion of my time in the fandom, I spent it here on MLP Forums, occasionally making posts and sometimes actually interacting with the community and eventually, I wanted to branch out a little more and tried to find some meetups nearby, as well as a more local fan site but unfortunately, my parents didn't want me to be in any meetups back then due to concerns for my safety. My friend @Frequency Wavelength introduced me to Bronies Australia, a more local website which unfortunately wasn't very active, but it was great to know that this wasn't only some weird thing that Americans do a lot. After a while, I did also start to decline interest in this website due to some drama with the staff that was going on at the time and made a blog post last year explaining why I left the site. At the time, I was mainly a part of Equestria Daily's Morning and Nightly discussions and a regular on PonyTown, where I met a certain special someone... Through the years, I have made many friends and, at a very slow pace, learned to be more confident in myself and to try to enjoy my life a little more and be grateful for what I have. I'm still learning even today, but, I'm thankful for everyone in my life who has helped along the way, including those I met via the fandom and its presence on the web, and in this section, I just wanted to say thank you to some people I met through the fandom who are special to me, including those who are not on this website. @Jade Fire, I wanted to say thank you for being among the people to welcome me back on to this website when I decided to come back, and always being very friendly and understanding, even through tough times. I always enjoy talking to you and at times, a part of me does wish we could be friends outside of the internet, I consider you one of my best friends and I'm very grateful to have met you and to be so close to you. @PuddingPonyPal, you don't seem to come here very often, but if you ever read this, I just wanted to say thank you for welcoming me back on the website late last year. You have inspired me to try to be more creative with my art and fiction and you are very much a close friend to me. Minty Root, I remember you from back in the days when I was on EqD's discussions. I consider you one of my main inspirations for my (currently in the works) YouTube channel and I actually used to enjoy chatting with you on EqD. I am a part of your Discord server now, and as of writing this, I'm kind of wondering why we don't chat more? @SparklingSwirls, I really enjoy chatting with you and being your friend, and since chatting with you about it on Discord, you're also one of those people I want to meet at some point in real life, I actually really enjoy it when you be silly and you have helped me out of my depression, and we both seem to share a lot in common. Whenever I need someone to talk to, or just want to say hi, you are the first person I talk to. @StrawCherry, I feel like we are really good friends and, despite your being busy all the time, I kinda see you as the sister I never had. I enjoy your passion towards art and technology and I encourage you to continue doing that! Grazin, I really do mean it when I say that I enjoy being your friend. I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone, and I always have fun on your Discord server. You are very kind and I think you are stronger than you realize. I know you've been through a lot and might have had a rough past, but I just wanted to say that you shouldn't let it define who you are, I think the fact that I enjoy my friendship with you to the point where I have considered inviting people to your Discord server, so they can meet you says a lot, I might not be on Equestria Daily any more, but you are among the people I met from there who I still enjoy being around. Enigma, you are a very cool guy and I actually really enjoy seeing your passion towards music. I consider myself lucky for having met you and I wish we chatted a little more. @Frequency Wavelength, thank you for introducing me to the Aussie side of this fandom. It really helps me to know that I can share my interests with people much closer to home. You are a very cool and very friendly guy, and I think we would be great friends SGB, we only really met when I joined Grazin's server, but, I've always thought you were very kind and friendly. I think we should chat more ^^ @Battenberg, we've only just started chatting recently, but, I think you are a good friend so far, so thank you for letting me be your friend. @Valencia, you are a very kind individual and I just wanted to say thank you for being there for me when I needed it and for being a good friend and a good person in general. I hope everything is going very well for you. Mountain Dreams, we don't chat as often as we used to, but I've always enjoyed being your friend and I enjoy talking about the latest MLP episodes with you and I think you are a very good friend. @Totally Lyra, you're my favourite moderator on this website and I have fun reading posts from you and being your friend. Also, Lyra is still the best pony! Raven... I have a lot to say about you and I'm not even sure where to begin... My long distance relationship with you meant a lot to me and I do still miss you quite a lot, I remember that we met on New Years Eve in 2016 and I really enjoyed talking to you and to this day, there is something about you that I still love. Not sure if it was your kindness, your friendly attitude, your love of music, the fact that you are a fun lady to be with or anything else, but, there is something about you I love and I cherish all the time we've spent together and miss you greatly. You have shown me what true love is like and I never expected to meet you at all. I know things weren't always the best between us and that a lot of mistakes were made, but, I always thought it was still worth being with you because you at least tried to do what you could to make things work out. I wish we had more time to chat with each other because I genuinely enjoy your presence and words cannot even begin to describe how I feel about you as a person. The thing is, I don't even feel like your absence was entirely your fault, though its still something that should have been talked about, and I'm sorry for not having the courage to just simply talk out my problems. The fact that I still think about you and the fact that I still miss you must mean something. I love you, Raven and truth be told, if you ever come back, I'd want to give this another chance and see if we were really meant to be... A lot has changed since we last met and I'm more confident than ever and I'm ready to be in a relationship this time, and I'm ready to put in the extra effort for you. The thing is, you are unlike anybody I've ever met in my life and words will never be enough to describe how I feel about you... Thank you for everything, Raven. I genuinely mean it when I tell you I love you, and I hope we meet again soon and maybe work things out... To some, Bronies might be seen as some "fad" in popular culture, but, with all the experiences I've had and all the wonderful people I've met in this fandom, I think it is so much more than that. We are very much a community as well as family and even though I've still got a lot to work on, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone in the fandom for helping me to grow and become more confident and enjoy life a little more. I think there is something special about this community of like-minded individuals and even though we do go through a lot of difficult times, we always come back stronger than before, I never expected that a community based around a popular show would mean so much to me, but, evidently it does, and I am very thankful for that. I may not enjoy the show itself as much as I used to, but I still do enjoy being part of this community and I promise that it will always have a special place in my heart and I'm proud to be a Brony and even more proud to have met all my friends from across the fandom, I think that even by the time life gets too busy for me and I cannot actively be in any geeky community, I will still have lots of fond memories of my time as a Brony and I promise I'll pass all the lessons I've learned on to my possible son's and daughter's in the future and I might even show them some episodes of MLP. Thank you, everyone. -Nightfall Gloam.
  24. There's too much negativity going around these days so I made this thread. Just post why you love the member above you/why you think they're awesome, even if you don't know them. For example, the member above me is awesome because he/she doesn't exist!
  25. Hello, everyone! I don't often post blogs, but I feel like I've got something to say... Since finding out about the death of our friend, @TempestShadow, I just wanted to say that I feel like this is a reminder that we should be grateful for everyone in our lives because, for all you know, it could be the very last time you see somebody and you will end up regretting it... Although not always in the form of death, there are a lot of people I miss in my life who I've lost, be it friends, family members and even my girlfriend, sometimes without knowing what happened to them, and I honestly regret that I did not spend enough time with them, and it does make me feel like I should get back in touch with these people, even though I'm not sure how I'm going to contact them again, and I don't want to lose anyone else. Going off topic, I feel like everything that has been going on so far in this year has been a bit of a "wake up call" so to speak, and if there is anything you feel like you need to fix, you should probably go fix it before it's too late, and if you feel like you need to do or say something, you should probably do it, because the world isn't going to wait... But most importantly, cherish the time you spend with those you love, and make the most of it, because you never know when it will be the last time you see someone...
