  1. I looked around the Internet, and noticed that of the Mane Six, Applejack has the least number of images uploaded to Derpibooru.org, and also the least number of messages in her fan club on this forum. This convinces me, Applejack might actually be the least favorite of the average MLP fan. I'm not trying to offend any Applejack fans; I only did this for survey purposes. Even I don't agree that Applejack is my least favorite. You understand, right?

    Spoiler The Student 6's elements

    When the Tree of Harmony saved the Student 6 a student said "their glowing like the elements" that is incorrect they were glowing like the Mane 6 like the rainbow vision from season 4 were not the colors of a rainbow but the Mane 6's colors. Twilight is purple, Pinkie is pink, Rainbow dash is blue, Applejack is orange, Fluttershy is yellow, and Rarity is white. They weren't glowing the colors of the elements but the element bearers.

Title: Honest Apple Air Date (Canada/Treehouse TV): May 14, 2017 Air Date (U.S./Discovery Family): June 3, 2017 Writer: Kevin Lappin Summary: "When Rarity asks Applejack to be a judge in a fashion show, Applejack learns that an opinion, however honest, can still be hurtful." This episode will continue the trend from Treehouse TV starting last Sunday with Fluttershy Leans In: Two episodes will air per week, one on Saturday, one on Sunday (and could air the finale early in the summer), while Discovery Family will air one per week. More than likely due to the Movie coming out in October. Each episode airs sometime between 11 and 11:30am EST, but its timing isn't completely consistent.

    Countyisim contest

    Make yer best countyisims. I want this here topic to git so dang many it'll look like a barn O' chickins with 5 tons of grain, left alone durin matin season.
  12. I was thinking about the Big Macintosh/Sugar Belle romance, and figured that if there's anything that Big Mac has that Applejack doesn't, it's an established romance with a "Special Somepony". We know that Applebloom, along with Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo, support the romance. but one wonders what Applejack would think of the relationship. Let's discuss one of the possibilities. I suppose that AJ might feel a very tiny bit of jealousy over Big Mac having a relationship and her still without one after 8 seasons. Do you suppose that somewhere, very very deep in the back of her mind, Applejack might be wishing that she had a "special somepony" of her own? One wonders how she feels or what she does on Hearts and Hooves day. Now one possibility as to relates to her lack of romantic desires is that he mind is focused too much on her farm work and when one works on Sweet Apple Acres, you have to pull your weight for the farm to thrive. Not only that, but she's an Element of Harmony and a professor at the Friendship School. Both of which also put Twilight, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie's potential romantic desires on hold. The Mane 6 practically have no time for romance. But even for the other 5, I'm sure that somewhere in the back of their minds, they wish they had a "special somepony" to call their own. But promoting friendship has to come first, and romantic pursuits have to be saved for later. What makes Applejack stand out among the others is that she's living with a brother who has an established romance in the show, and don't think that's not going to be noticed by her. Another possibility is that she isn't interested in romance. She was pursued by Trenderhoof in "Simple Ways" but she showed NO interest in him whatsoever. I take it from that episode that among the Mane 6 Applejack rivals Rainbow Dash for LEAST romantic Mane 6 member. But then again in due time, she might change her mind. What do you think. Do you suppose that Applejack wishes at some point to have a "special somepony" of her own?
  13. Title: The Cart Before The Ponies Air Date: August 6, 2016 Written by: Ed Valentine Synopsis: The Cutie Mark Crusaders are excited for the chance to race in the annual Applewood Derby until their teammates Rarity, Applejack and Rainbow Dash take over the competition. Of course remember to join us at the CMC Clubhouse on Equestria.tv!
  14. 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?
  15. Speculation on What Season 9 (The Last Season?) of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Will Be Like: Speculations based on leaked information! Spoilers ahead. Anyway, those are just my speculations on what could happen/occur come Season 9 (should it be the last season of FIM). But what do you think, do you agree with my speculations? What are yours? Let me and everyone else know. 😊 God Bless and Take Care. Speculation on What Season 9.docx

    Howdy, everypony! Just noticed that my friends had their "ask" threads up, and ah was feelin mighty left out, so here we are! Ah may not be as popular to ya'll as my friends are, but ah'll try my best to give an honest answer to whatever ya ask, as soon as I can find time for it-apples don't buck themselves! So ask away, everypony!
  17. WIP A Perfect Pair - Gone but not forgotten I'm including both of these characters together since they are indeed the perfect pair. I'm a hopeless romantic who was lucky enough to live a great romance and this couple is hooves down the greatest depiction of romantic love in FiM. This is as close to a holy grail OTP that the show can ever hope to achieve. Their story is as epic as the anticipation of finally seeing them depicted as characters, fully realized. The writers did not disappoint when crafting their love story. Many of us have waited years for this moment. I hope this topic will stand as a way to showcase them as a couple and also individually. A thread to remember them by in a sense. "A moment in our lives, a lifetime in our hearts."

    Cider Season Trivia

    Welcome to the Cider Season Trivia. In the midst of the insanity of the MLPF World Cup and the looming Nightmare Nights in the near future, Cider Season has begun and that means those who love to drink cider are going to be very happy. Hopefully, none of you are too hyped up on cider otherwise you might miss out on this. Right now, Applejack is busy dealing with an apple theft or something, but before she galloped off, she asked me to present some questions based on her exploits. Me? I don't drink cider myself so I'm more than fine to do this. There are nine questions to answer as well as a bonus question and by answering them all correctly, you will earn yourself a badge dedicated to Applejack. What is on it? I'll let you find out for yourselves. As before, you must submit your trivia answers to the right character. In this case, @Applejack. Any concerns must be sent her way though you can send them to me. Remember that hints aren't available for all questions and the bonus has none. Collaborations are also allowed so feel free to join forces with others if you feel the need to. Oh, and as usual, the bonus can be substituted as a correct answer if you're not comfortable with your answers for the regular ones. Now... Due to some issues in the previous trivia, there have been some slight changes. First of all, you will be given four days to submit your answers to a specific character, in this case, @Applejack, from the moment this trivia was posted on the forums. Also, from now on, the trivia threads will be given a time lock feature where they will automatically lock after the allotted time has passed. Once the lock happens, that particular trivia will have ended and no further submissions will be accepted barring very special circumstances. In this instance, it will lock after four days. Ready for the questions? Good because here they are. Q1. What command does Applejack use to get Winona to herd up animals? Q2. What are the cutie marks of each member of Sweet Apple Acres? Q3. What animal did Rainbow Dash knock over rushing to beat the line for Cider Season? Q4. How much does it cost for a Sweet Apple Acres mug of cider? Q5. Which episode did Applejack say the following: "I'm Applejack! More apple fwitter?" Q6. Where were Granny Smith, Big Mac, and Apple Bloom during Bats! Q7. What did Applejack do to the Apple Family with her lies as a filly? Q8. When did Granny Smith first fight the apple blight? Q9. What marks the site of the Apple & Pear wedding? Bonus. In Rollercoaster of Friendship, Pinkie Pie appoints Applejack to a special position and then the latter is able to use it to access an area that's off-limits to the public. What is the position Applejack is given? How is this position used to access the off-limits area? What does she do when she gets there? Edit: Question Five has been changed to include the correct quote. Thanks to @ChB for pointing it out.
  19. When Applejack is escaping from Dodge Junction/Dodge City in "The Last Roundup" the stallions pulling are all blank flanks. You could say it was an animation error but in "Party Pooped" the same stallions pulling Cherry Jubilee, and Pinkie Pie still don't have any cutie marks?

    "Sounds of Silence" Review

    Note: Credit to @Truffles and @Justin_Case001 for my review. Am I interested in talking about this episode? No. I'D RATHER SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING! For Season 8, Nicole Dubuc brought in a few writers: Brian Hohlfeld, Kaita Mpambara, and Kim Beyer-Johnson. Minus Kaita, each of them have strong connections with Dubuc and worked with her on Transformers: Rescue Bots. Gregory Bonsingore is no exception. But for him, he's a little different compared to the rest. Bonsignore is an award-winning playwright and lyricist: His Off-Broadway play "Gorgonzola: A Cautionary Sicilian Tale" won several awards at a Miami musical festival, including Best Musical and Best Music/Lyrics. So to have an accomplished writer on FIM is a treat regardless of outcome. In his Friendship Is Magic debut, he displays his credentials. This episode covers a lot of information, comparable to Lost Mark or even MMC. But what he does so well is manage it. How? When scenes weren't as important (i.e., the Map calling), little time's used, but when he needs to delve into the important plot points (i.e., communicating with the kirin, finding Autumn, figuring out what caused the vow of silence), he takes advantage. Therefore, despite an abrupt ending, the story flows well. It goes by fast without rushing through. As what Twilight said, this is the first time a set of ponies took part in a second quest, this being AJ and FS. And here, each of them were tremendous. Was Fluttershy scared? Thanks to its ominous name and craggy exterior, more than plausible. The Friendship Express quickly hightailing from its weathered station further and freaky clerk support her fear. But as the episode progressed, her fear starts to ease, starting with helping nearby squirrels gather up bright yellow-to-blue flowers, who in return helped her locate the Peaks's real entrance and their discovery of the kirin. Needless to say, the kirin are gorgeous! Their earthly tones complement really well with their environment and contrast really nicely to the pastel-ly look of AJ and FS. Their manes, horns, toes, tails, and dragon-scale-esque backs are wonderfully designed, with only their brilliant eyes to pop out. And, yes, @Justin_Case001 is right. The tilting of the head makes them look really cute! But the outsider of the clan, Autumn Blaze, is easily the star of the show and takes up the bulk of the run time compared to the others. Pinkie and Silverstream are massive chatterboxes, but Autumn gives them a massive run for their money. She talks a lot and is full of quirks with solid reason. Other than the view and makeshift toys, she hasn't talked to anyone in ages to the point of forgetting or mispronouncing words. AJ is her first companion since Rain Shine exiled her. And her rapid, sometimes flowery, talk is completely hilarious. Her personality is more than charming. It's warm, bright, and optimistic. Even when she's bored, she finds ways to remain eccentric and hopeful to reunite with her clan, evident in many ways, including her gossip with a stick. Oh, and We're Friendship-Bound? You're dethroned! A Kirin Tale is the best song of the season. Nuff said! Not enough? Well, alright. The events Blaze described are quite serious, but because she and the song sound so happy with a boatload of humor (including pop culture jokes referencing Citizen Kane, Hamilton, and especially Phantom of the Opera!), the tone's nowhere nearly that dark. The song itself, written by Big Jim and Dubuc, is really funny with many fantastic lyrics. The kirin society's closed off from outside contact and, if going by the ancient shield Rockhoof used, lived closed off for millennia. Its vow of silence is relatively new in their history, but painted on a nearby rock (and shown to FS offscreen) to remind them of why they accepted this vow. The graphic imagery in itself paints a really dark era of what happened and, to echo what @Truffles stated in his replies, why Rain Shine (the kirin's longtime empress) was completely justified to take such a drastic measure in the first place. The kirin clan devolved into a literal flame war over who'll buy a homemade water pitcher, and their nirik fight destroyed their water supply, flora, and village. But even after becoming homeless, they kept going, and some of them were completely incapable of controlling their temper, hence their sustained nirik form. Had Rain Shine not step in and order everyone to step into the Stream of Silence and suppress their feelings, they'd lose more than just their village, but way of life or even themselves. And in response to those who criticize Rain Shine's plan as flawed, that's the point. Anger's normal, and it's okay to express your anger. But it's important to channel it responsibly. Rain Shine's solution restored order and peace within the Peaks of Peril, but sacrificed being able to communicate and feel without being reminded of why they suppressed their emotions. The following lyrics metaphorize the very moral: Rainbows won't light up the sky unless you let it rain. Shiny apples sometimes come with worms. Candles just won't glow until they burned. And that was why the Map called AJ and FS: to teach them how to constructively moderate their anger and disagree without sacrificing their joy, ability to feel, or fearing to hurt each other's feelings and reunite Autumn with the others. Why Applejack and Fluttershy in particular? For a few reasons. Applejack can tell the firm truth while also being sensitive to their feelings. She's not afraid to express what went wrong or what goes against her core morale without marginalizing them. In short, she tells the truth because she cares. If you have someone like Starlight, you run the risk of undercutting the very moral you're trying to teach, because she's plain and blunt, and with a history as sensitive as the kirin's, even more so. AJ's softer personality balances out better with the conflict as well as Fluttershy's further tenderness and care for the animals who live with them. Fluttershy is way more connected to the animals than anyone else. When they're happy, she's happy, and when they're sad, she's sad. She understands what they want, how they feel, and what they're saying. She inadvertently discovered leftover Foal's Breath flowers for the squirrels, and in return, they help them discover the Peaks' true entrance. Because of her ability to read emotions and understand what's wrong, she's observant in how to properly communicate with the kirin, including advising Applejack to ask yes or no question (even though AJ contrivedly ignored that to begin Act 2 ). Despite being initially frightened, she grew more comfortable around them as AJ searched for Autumn Blaze. Observe how she stopped being scared after Applejack returned to the village. The episode validates both their arguments, which won't work with another pair. Autumn's explanation packs the events with a lot of humor, which masked its seriousness. But because the kirin are mute and emotionally suppressed, Fluttershy fully realized how serious the situation was immediately. Her closeness to the wilderness justifies her to opt for the opposite solution. OTOH, AJ had a valid argument, too, which was find the Foal's Breath flower to free them from their vow of silence so they can emote and communicate again. Both sides have a point, rounding the conflict. It's easy to see why they briefly argued; they were both passionate about solving the kirin dilemma and couldn't find common ground, which they did after Blaze rescued them and used her anger and nirik alter ego to protect them from harm. And @Justin_Case001 makes three great points in his review. This is an episode about communication, more specifically being able to communicate without fear of hurting each others' feelings or starting an argument. Is it important to be sensitive to others? Without a doubt. Otherwise, you suggest you don't care. But it's important to talk to people, communicate with them, and find common ground to compromise without compromising your integrity. While The Cutie Map is about being diverse in your opinions, talents, and personalities, Sounds of Silence is about being diverse in how to communicate and find common ground. As I mentioned before, anger is important and will always be a part of your life. Unfortunately, it's attached to many harmful stereotypes, i.e., the angry black woman, which stigmatizes the emotion. But in itself, it's okay to be angry. Just like anger in itself is important, constructively channeling it is even more important. The nirik's temper were out of control, and until the end, only Autumn Blaze figured out how to manage it without manifesting into something worse. Fluttershy's solution to the friendship problem — keeping the kirin silent — is the wrong option, and she realizes it after they nearly dunked them into the Stream of Silence. However, it's very clear she didn't come to this conclusion with the worst intentions, but instead the opposite. Fire and wood mix easily, and nature is vital to the health of the kirin's secluded village and society. The nirik's temper was clearly a traumatizing event that she and the village altogether don't want to repeat, and this extreme option seemed to be the best one. Observe their faces as they argued: They were clearly distressed. Their heated argument reminded them of what happened long ago. That's why they interrupted it before it escalated. Other than the pacing, cramming of detail, and AJ getting briefly nailed with the stupid stick, its last flaw is how obvious the Foal's Breath flower's impact into solving the friendship problem becomes as the plot progresses. Fluttershy and the story spent a good amount of time arranging it for the squirrels, and its brilliant gradients of blue to yellow with all that detail stand out really strongly against the dirty-looking desert. The fact that Blaze landed in a bed of identical flowers and made a tea out of them connects the dots much more. Yet, they're all very minuscule in the thick of things. Bonsignore's scripting talents really shine with well-done dialogue, pleasant characterization of AJ, FS, and Autumn Blaze, and intelligently simple story. Despite its fast pacing, the script is tight and polished; everything logically flows from one point to another without anything out of place. Since S4, FIM plugs in one episode featuring at least one celebrity guest: Weird Al for Pinkie Pride, Lena Hall for Mane Attraction, Patton Oswalt for Stranger Than Fan Fiction, Felicia Day & William Shatner for The Perfect Pear, and now Rachel Bloom (Autumn's VA) for this one. DHX, now Allspark Studios, puts forth a ton of effort into making the guests belong into the story, and that hard work pays off into an excellent episode (with TPP museum-worthy). Sounds of Silence is no exception. In an already-phenomenal Season 8, this is another addition to the pile of outstanding episodes.
  21. With the recent trailer showing and hinting that (with their version of Secret Santa being done among the Mane 6 and Spike) To me, this makes the most sense for the direction they are going with for this special. But hey, If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. Although I think I may be on the button or close to it. But what do you think? Did you agree with my speculation, or do you have a different speculation on who else got who. Let us know. God Bless.
