  1. I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but search came up with nothing for Starlight Cutie Mark when searching. So I'd like to start a discussion with you all. What is the meaning of Starlight's Cutie Mark? What's her talent? A Cutie Mark is earned when a pony discovers their special talent, the thing they're good at and do the best. It's not necessarily the only thing they will ever do with their life, nor are they going to be the best in the world at that thing, but it's the thing they're supposed to be the best at doing when such things come up. Starlight originally had issues with Cutie Marks, trying to hide hers and remove those of others to create a utopia. She tried to destroy the lives of the Manes and their Cutie Marks. She has switched the Alicorn sisters Cutie Marks to teach them a good lesson. It seems she's all up in everyone's behinds while also being Op at magic and then later not being able to lift a simple suitcase. But with the latter I digress. So what is our favorite reformed villain pony and basically Mane 8's special talent? What is she good at? What does the lavender and blueish swirling thing actually mean? IIRC this has never been brought up or mentioned in the show, so I thought I would make this thread to discuss. I feel she might just be good at magic in general like Twilight, but is that really possible? What do you guys think?
  2. Basically what the topic says. My talent is the ability to pull off a Barney the Dinosaur voice. Oh, the fun I have on XBL.

    Artists have always been good, they improve the culture of humanity and of the people that chose to see their art. However, I have seen several problems with them nowadays. Lets begin with a simple fact, an artist won't get recognized that easily, in fact, you are either Da Vinci or no one. There are people who don't have any kind of skill but most are in the middle and are great at what they do. But no one will look at your work if they don't know you previously, but how will they know you if you just began? We can picture what I am saying with, for example, brony musicians. I've seen some who have made a song, posted a pony image for background and there you go: "brony song" Why? To generate views of course. Being standalone wouldn't help them so they just decided to make their "art" based on the fandom so that more people would be interested in their work. Another problem with brony musicians presicely, I've seen a lot of "being proud for being a brony" or "we are the best" kind of songs. I suppose its either an answer to haters or (though I doubt it) to help these people ashamed of being part of us. If its the former I have a problem with it, because those songs while catchy most of the time are bad and the fact that we don't have to counterattack haters. Our situation isn't (or was, I think society has accepted us at some level) like with gay and black people who have homophobes and racists respectively who are literally attacking them, we only have (or had, I don't know) a couple of minor idiots who are just saying that we're weird or bad or whatever, they ain't attacking us. I don't think we have the right to do those kinds of songs since we don't have real problems which threaten our existence. If its the latter then they have a point. Another problem, quality. With social media and internet giving space for everyone to post their talent some people have aquired a way of letting themselves know more or less, this is a double edge though, since it makes untalented people also able to post their work. FiMfiction is proof. I may even be part of the problem I am depicting. Many stories are good, you can't expect them to be as good as a writer like Tolkien but they are still very good. Many more are bad and awful to read. (There was a brony who dedicated to read bad stories lol) Making it easier to show your talent has filled the internet with trash is the point. I was just speaking my mind about artists nowadays, nothing special. I feel empty in a way though, about this. End of the blog. You can go away now, or leave a comment if you so want. The main topic is over, that's all folks. Why are you even reading at this point? I don't want to waste your time any further so I will just stop... Here.
  4. Not sure if this is the best for discussion, but there seem to be a few ponies who's cutie mark doesn't seem to match with them or their talent. For example: The ponies Minuette and Derpy don't seem to have cutie marks matching what would seem to be their talent. Minuette is usually seen as a dentist despite her cutiemark being an hourglass (yes I know it is a joke but it makes no sense for her cutie mark), and Derpy, who seems to be a mailmare/mail pony despite having bubbles. I can kind of see Derpy, but it doesn't seem to be a talent still. Minuette, though being a background pony, hasn't been shown to have anything to do with her cutie mark. It sometimes just is a design that looks nice, which is probably the case production-wise. There are probably other ponies like this. What do you think?

  6. Okay, so I have this new CM that I'm SO excited for!! ;w; and I want to be sure that I look through all options before making a final decision. Of course I can't take them all but I'd love a list of ideas from everyone on what they'd think this CM can represent as a talent or skill! ANYTHING. It can range from dark, and twisted to childish and simple! With that being said, here's my new CM: And here's the list of options that I have so far. If you like any of them, feel free to let me know... that's fine too! If you suggest something new, I'll add it to the list of suggestions also! 1. Capable of speaking to deceased 2. Paranormal investigator/Medium 3. Spiritual summoner/necromancer with Grimoire as a guide 4. Talented horror/spooky/ghost story teller 5. Talented with spiritual/ghost history/knowledge 6. Pony that sets up great haunted houses/decor That's all so far! Thank you in advance for any help! I'm pretty excited, and any help will be highly appreciated.
  7. Okay so I have a new OC, she's a Pegasus and I haven't worked out her colour scheme yet that will come later, but i cant think of a special talent for her I've wanted to call her firefly but if it conflicts too much with the talent then it can be changed. Also I don't want her to be a wonderbolt because i think that's a bit generic I'm sure there's plenty of wonder bolt OC's out there i would like to be a little more original. Every piece of feedback is appreciated thank you. i was thinking of a fire fighter because she's quite punk/rocker
  8. This is a game where the goal is simple: one-up the post above you. Basically, post something about you or someone you know that is just slightly more impressive than that of the post above you. But be warned: if you post something that is too much better, I may call you a "Show-Off" and start this game back at the mundane. The game is won when outlandish claims become a necessity to keep up, though the game can still continue for as long as nobody becomes a "Show-Off." Now to start: I can whistle.
  9. If you could have a cutie mark, what would it be? What would it symbolize? Why? If I could have a cutie mark, I would have a light blue and green microphone. It symbolizes how much I like to sing. People tell me I'm good at singing. And I enjoy it a lot. The reason behind the color choice is that light blue is my favorite color.
  10. So a friend of mine gave a prompt to make a happy or up beat oc given what I normal make or role play. Which is a good way to write and such, in the end I made this pony: Redone in colors: Yet I have no idea what to call her, found a few cutie marks maybe that might fit her but her colors seem a bit off and her mane and tail style so some feedback would be loved. As for setting, I thought of Neighppon (japan) is where she is from!
  11. Earth ponies have strength, Pegasi have flight and Unicorns have magic, so what talent do crystal ponies have? I've noticed that all the crystal ponies I've seen are basic ponies ( earth pony model). So is there talent strength? or something completely different?
  12. Hello Everypony!, I've been thinking and I can't figure out what my cutie mark would really be. I really want something unique to represent me, but I'm not sure what it would be. My fiancce's is simple her's would be a jingle bell she's obsessed with them they make her happy...but me I don't know. I was wondering if anypony would have any ideas? Or if anypony else wonders what their cutie mark would be too? There are so many things I like and so many things I would like to think I'm good at but I'm not sure. I always wanted to be an author since I could scribble but I've never finished a book or anything longer than a short story...I work on it everyday though. I was born singing, and born musical, I played the cello for twelve years, the drums for three, the piano for a few months now I own a ukulele and I'm saving up for a guitar..I've only written one song that I'm satisfied High School I was the lead in a few musicials. I love ghosts and tarot cards and I'm convinced my grandfather who committed suicide when my mother was four is haunting me and trying to get me to end the cycle of self hatred in our family. In middle school I created my own word: Nai, which actually is a word in Tai, it means deer. But when I came up with it, it was meant to represent a personality trait that everyone else had and I didn't now I view it as a wholeness and an acceptance of self... My favorite season is fall because it's in between life and death and oooo all those lovely colors. I view myself as having a really powerful darkside and a super powerful light side as well and I'm trying to love both sides...My favorite song is Blinding by Florence and the Machine.. My favorite color is silver and I have a crap ton of favorite animals...Oh I'm also sort of obsessed with "Christmas trees" I view them as Yule trees though and I love them because my family has always decorated them in a way that it looks like the christmas tree is an entire town and I used to use my imagination to escape into that world.. My favorite food is overly buttered popcorn. Idk.. It's really hard to figure out just one thing that makes me special or my super special talent and that makes me feel not special at all.. Anypony else understand?
  13. I was just wondering if there are any of you on this forum that likes to animate or sing or VA or anything of the sort, so I decided to make a thead to chat with others with talents. I know what you might be thinking and don't worry, I'm not one of those kids that are like "CAN YOU MAKE STUFF FOR ME PLZPLZPLZPLZPLZPLZPLZPLZPLZZZZZZZZ?!?!?!?!?!", I am just a normal person who just wants to learn about new people in his brony community and thought it would be nice to make a thread where you can. Feel free to tell a little bit about yourself and what you like to do, and maybe even show off some of your work. For instance, I am a person who likes to make pony videos animated with Garry's Mod on Youtube. Here's one of my animations (which seems to be my most popular): I'm looking forward to seeing what the rest of you guys like to do too.
  14. The title may seem a tad bit misleading, but what I'm asking here is, do any of you guys feel that there's a bias as to what Bronies and MLP content can get recognized for? Does it seem like unless you're an animator, artist, musician, or voice actor, it's almost impossible to get noticed by the fandom at all? I feel that there's so much talent out there that no one wants to acknowledge simply because it doesn't fall within any of these four skill-sets. I dunno, maybe I'm just butthurt over the fact that I'm not as well know as I'd like to be. But I seriously feel that the fandom is somewhat unwilling to promote other talents such as Filmmaking, Visual effects artists, or Graphics design. I dunno, what you guys think? I'm general curious and wondering if others think this way as well. . .
  15. So, it's official! AGT 2014 has already begun! And it has begun with a dose of OMG! A young pianist led off the season and blew everyone away! So, what more do you expect from AGT 2014, and what do you NOT expect to see?
  16. This parrot has also got a good taste in music.
  17. So say a pony gets there Cutie Mark at a young age when they were into sports or something, but a few years later he decides he wants to go to law school, he studies for years and his special talent changes, would his cutie mark change? Please speculate. Just to clarify I'm talking a destiny changing event to change it, and without some sort of spell or illness, such as Cutie Pox or Vampirism
  18. Hello my forum friends! So, a while back, I made my first OC which was exclusive to one RP in particular - but alas the RP didn't last and my and all the other OC's were left to rot in the 'Roleplay Characters' section.. Anywho, I'd like to use my OC again, but her cutie mark and talent is what is giving me trouble. The roleplay was based on astrology, so my ponie's cutie mark is a star sign. My particular OC is Taurus, so her cutie mark is a sign for the bull. I have no idea what her talent can be that is something related with Taurus, and frankly, I don't really want to change it. If y'all would help me, I'd greatly appreciate it

  20. Valor and her friends official wallpaper made by the creator himself, TwiliDashieFlutt. Right click on the image, go to save image as, click the place, anywhere, you want to put it, then click save. once you have the wallpaper, you can double-click on it then right click the picture. click "set as desktop background" and there you go.
  21. Fluttershy is the perfect caretaker for many creatures in Equestria. By always placing others needs ahead of her own, she truly represents her element. As the series progresses, she gradually learns to put her hoof down and impose her will on others...but just how far does that power go? In "Stare Master", her ability to subdue even the cockatrice suggests that her stare is indeed top-tier. Occasionally dealing with misbehaving animals would expectedly nurture this power, yet Fluttershy demonstrates an ability even greater than Lelouch's Geass "The Stare" before the end of season 1. Back tracking to "Ticket Master" for a moment, we recall that Fluttershy wants to roam the garden and befriend all the creatures (which includes Tucans, Humming birds, Buzzards, and Flamingo's, among many others). This seems to imply that she hasn't met these type of animals before- much less houses them. Seven episodes into season 2 though, many of the mentioned creatures are options for Rainbow's pet. How did she get them there? The answer is simple. With the power of........ Her command was clear: "You' LOVE ME!!!" And that's exactly what they do. They sought out her cottage and have remained ever since. It's power rivals "The Stare", and it's more effective to cast (influencing multiple targets through sound). Out of all her talents, the ability to communicate COMMAND creatures makes Fluttershy a force to be reckoned with; especially if it extended to Dragons! All hail, Flutterborn What other powers remain dormant in Fluttershy? Will she harness them in season 4? Am I just making references because I can? Let me know in the space below!
  22. More wise words from Sprocket. Really resonated with me, and I'm sure it will with many others here.
  23. All right, I just really want to get this out there. A lot of people seem to think that having a cutie mark would be holding them back in some way, that it controls what you do. That's not the case, at least I don't think so. I think they've gotten the idea from Magical Mystery Cure, but the way I see it is not that the Mane 6's cutie marks forced them into these jobs, but that, since those were their cutie marks, what they represent must have been what they were good at and chose to do... so why didn't they enjoy it? Why couldn't they do it right? But anyway, what I wanted to talk about, mostly, is talent. I've noticed a bit of talk about how you could get a cutie mark in something you don't like. True, you can be good at something you don't like. You can try something and be good at it, but the thing is, if you don't enjoy it, you won't put the time and energy into it that would make you truly talented. For example, I'm a writer. I know my cutie mark would have to do with writing. True, the ability to be a good writer was in me most of my life. But if I didn't enjoy writing, I wouldn't write or strive to become better at writing, and without that, it's not talent- simply potential. So while you may have potential in something you don't care for, you'll only get a cutie mark if it's really what you want to do.
  24. Recently, the purpose of a cutie mark has been questioned. I haven't seen many in depth interpretations published on this topic since Magical Mystery Cure, so I figured I'd give it go and try to explain my interpretation of what they are and how they work, while also providing reasons why the mane six acted/act the way they did/do. I go a little back and forth, but hopefully it makes sense. Everypony has a cutie mark and a story of how they got it. Applejack: She visited her Aunt and Uncle, got homesick, and went home, got her cutie mark...okay, bear with me. She has three apples as her cutie mark. Why three? Why not just one, like Big Mac? Applejack, being family oriented, may interpret the three apples as her family, Big Mac, Granny Smith, and Apple Bloom. Even though Apple Bloom probably wasn't even born yet, it still adds her to the list. Cutie marks are tied in with destiny sometimes. Destiny here, was for Applejack to have a little sister. Then again, the third apple could just be Applejack. I personally don't believe this because Applejack's personal interpretation of her cutie mark would just naturally be associated with her family and not her. Also, her job is with Sweet Apple Acres. She's good at it. But her TALENT isn't working on the farm. It's her special connection with her family, which happens to be linked to the orchard. Another thing is why it's three APPLES instead of oh, maybe oranges? As mentioned by others, it could be genetics. But Applejack and Big Macintosh grew up around apples. It's only logical their cutie marks would have something to do with apples because they would interpret it as such. In turn, I wouldn't think Apple Bloom's future cutie mark would be anything outside of related to apples for the same reasons, even if only in appearance. Fluttershy: Fluttershy can communicate with animals at a level other ponies can't. This in itself is her obvious special talent. But, how does Fluttershy interpret this? She doesn't really interpret it, she more just does things with it. As Applejack's job has really nothing to do with her talent, except the apple theme, Fluttershy's job revolves around her ability. She cares for sick and injured animals, while also giving homeless domestic animals a place to live. Plus she's perfect for matching ponies with pets. Her destiny was always with animals. The reason she never realized her ability before the sonic rainboom event was because she was a pegasus living in Cloudsdale. Animals don't normally live in clouds. Now, why is Fluttershy's cutie mark butterflies? The first animal she encounters on the ground, are butterflies. The butterflies directly influenced Fluttershy's first perception of the ground. If she were saved by, say, bunnies, her cutie mark may have been bunnies. Or bears if it were bears or something like that. Why three? This time, it's simply rule of three. Rarity: Rarity got her cutie mark by decorating costumes with gems. This story is a little more personalized for Rarity. Her love for fashion and designing might have easily been her simple talent. She's good at making really nice looking dresses and accesories. However, this is not what destiny had in mind for her. Although Rarity gave it a big fat middle finger saying "no, I'm doing what I wanna do," destiny decided to push her towards her destiny and work with her instead of push her off her passion. Rarity decided fine, whatever, gems are pretty. Rarity knows full well what her actual talent is, possibly, gem finding magic (as it makes the most sense) however she pursues it only when it benefits her business. As far as three gems as her cutie mark, rule of three again. Why is it gems, because fate and destiny is a big fat queen meany that wanted the last laugh. I'm stretching it a little but it still makes sense right? Right? Yeah, I have yet to work the kinks out of Rarity's story. Twilight: Okay, as we know, Twilight is Celestia's student. Twilight also has a passion, this time being magic, but unlike Rarity, it coincides with her destiny. Her passion IS her talent. The star design I think is more personal symbolism than influence. Her name is Twilight Sparkle. Her cutie mark, if it was animated, could sparkle because it's a sparkling star. The stars around it obviously symbolizes her future friendships. Although in Magical Mystery Cure, there is an extra star added in this scene. I've tried looking at Twilight's cutie mark after that moment and even during the Twilight Zone scene, but I can't tell if a star was added in or not. I think it's an interesting idea to pursue, but that's another discussion. Also, Celestia seems to be another driving force behind Twilight recieving her cutie mark as Twilight doesn't get it until she accepts Celestia's offer as her personal student. If Twilight had said no, her cutie mark wouldn't have appeared until another time and might have looked entirely different. Pinkie Pie: I'm not going over if her story was true or not. Let's say it is! Pinkie Pie sees a rainbow, feels joy, and throws a party for her family. Actually, this one is pretty simple. Pinkie Pie's cutie mark is three balloons. Why three? Again, rule of three. The reason they are balloons is probably the fact that Pinkie used mostly balloons for her first party and there are usually a lot of balloons in any party she throws, so she may just simply like them a lot. The reason they are balloons is also due to Pinkie's first attempt at creating joy. She throws a party. Balloons are naturally associated with parties. Plain and simple. Why not cake? Because cake isn't a balloon. It's just not the same! That's about it. Rainbow Dash: Sonic. Rain. Boom. Done. That's her special talent. But we don't really know how Rainbow Dash interprets her cutie mark. She knows she can do a sonic rainboom, but does she realize its her talent? Maybe, maybe not. The fact that there's a cloud attached to the rainbow bolt may symbolize her weather controlling abilities too. Maybe she realized her weather control first, but hadn't realized her true potential until the sonic rainboom. Rainbow Dash may have the potential to create something completely original if she used both of her talents as one. Does this mean Rainbow Dash has two talents? Well, yeah, one is just more prominent than the other. Same with everypony else. Rarity has her fashion sense and Applejack with apple farming to name the blatantly obvious ones. Also, I know you are thinking that all pegasi can control weather. Well, maybe not. We've never seen Fluttershy control the weather and Rarity did so in Magical Mystery Cure. It's up for opinion at this point yet. Each of the mane six had separate experiences that lead them to who they are today. I don't think cutie marks actually have to do with destiny, even though that was half of my argument for Rarity. I think destiny is just how ponies can explain cutie marks to the little ones. Not only is a cutie mark up for interpretation, it depends entirely on who the pony is when they recieve their cutie mark. Fluttershy may have been born with her ability, but if Applejack could communicate with animals, she'd be working with farm animals most of the time instead of apples. If Twilight had Rainbow Dash's ability for a sonic rainboom, it would allow her a different type of powerful magic ability. If Rarity had Pinkie Pie's dedication to spreading joy, her passion doesn't have to change. She could make a dang good hat for someone and watch them squeal in excitement because its perfect. Magical Mystery Cure was probably under worst outcome territory. The ponies reactions could always have been altered just enough where we wouldn't even say that the "special talent" is their polar opposite. The writers could very well have made them happy with the switch. Of course, that would rule out the epic Twilight solo song and the point of the episode. However, if given more time, this could also have been a very effective way of returning the ponies to their true selves as well. But why did the mane six act the way they did in the episode? It can just be chalked up to bad writing, but try looking at it this way. Rarity says in the beginning that she had been controlling the weather in Ponyville ever since her cutie mark appeared. What posessed her to think that her cutie mark meant she needed to control the weather? Well, the true Rarity may connect Rainbow Dash, and therefore her cutie mark, with weather control. The true Rarity never disappeared, but was just hidden under a facade. This facade used the perspective of the true Rarity to create memories to accomodate the new cutie mark. In Rainbow Dash's case, she doesn't have Fluttershy's communication ability with animals, so she wouldn't understand her talent as being anything more than controlling animals because that's how she sees Fluttershy. The same goes for the rest. Fluttershy sees Pinkie as a pony who throws parties to entertain others and make them laugh; Pinkie Pie sees Applejack as an all work and no play farm pony, and Applejack sees Rarity as someone who does nothing but make dresses all day. In the end, it was basically just each pony trying to be someone they know, while trying to be themselves at the same time. It doesn't work out. The actual purpose of a cutie mark is completely up to the pony who has it to interpret it. The purpose of a cutie mark being public for anyone passing by is to give other ponies an idea of who the pony may be. It's a bit like humans and our clothes, or cars, or houses. It tells others who we are, and a cutie mark serves the same purpose in that respect. This not only works for the mane six, but works for every other pony as well. Background ponies for example, have been given personalities based on what they have either been seen doing or simply their cutie marks. Bon Bon for instance, is named so because her cutie mark looks like three wrapped candies (even though the gameloft game suggests bows), therefore, she must make candies! Octavia is seen playing the cello, so from what we've seen, playing the cello is her special talent. However, if we simply saw her walking around like Bon Bon, she may have been given a competely different personality and career. Her cutie mark is a treble clef, which is connected to written music. Octavia would most likely have been given the career of writting sheet music if she had never been seen with an instrument. In conclusion, the purpose of a cutie mark is utterly up to the pony who has it and the actions of the mane six in the season three finale depended highly on their interpretation of the original owner of the cutie mark.
