  1. Welcome to a new installment of "Makes Sense and Doesn't" On this picture we have a ponified Starfire, and I am having a polarized opinion on her ponification. Why it makes sense for Star to be an alicorn? Well, because she is a princess of Tamaran, that's why Why it doesn't? My logic dictates: "In Equestria, if you are a pony with a functioning horn, you can do all kinds of magic with it." When it comes to Star, it only makes sense for her to sport a horn to ...and that's pretty much it. In her world she can only do that (apart from any other physical stuff). In Equestria she would have to be able to do more as an alicorn: move objects, cast spells, etc. That isn't really her thing now, is it? I believe there's somepony else whose schtick that would be: a certain friend of Star's. Which is why I personally see her more like a pegasus. She would still be able to throw starbolts with her hooves. It would just be an unusual (for Equestrian standards) magic, but much more plausible. Disclaimer: alicorn Star still looks cute :3
  2. I was just curious how open other bronies are about their brony-ness. Do you walk around proudly displaying it or is it on a strictly need-to-know basis? Personally I'm completely open about it. I'm wearing a Princess Luna shirt from WeLoveFine right now (it was a gift from my little sister. She's so sweet. ). I don't randomly bring it up or try to shove the show down other people's throats or anything, but I'm not afraid to say I like it if it comes up or someone asks. How about you all?
  3. I first learned of the brony community years ago when a good friend of mine told me he liked mlp after making some vague mentions of it in the past. The first thing he did was send me the Upheaval Breaking Point fanfic and said that it was really good. So just out of curiosity, I listened to the first few chapters and found myself, oddly enough, enjoying the story. Soon after, I found myself actually watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and discovered that I liked the show. Is it weird that I sincerely enjoyed upheaval? How many others like or have listened to this? Thanks- Frostbyte Here a reference....
  4. Fear. Fear is a natural (and healthy) emotion that we feel whenever we think we're in some form of danger. Unfortunately, some fears have a way of evolving into a phobia; an anxiety disorder in which you develop an irrational and persistent fear of an object or situation. ... But let me stop talking about this like it's an essay. Since all of us have our fears, i was wondering if any of you guys and gals have any phobias. I should make it clear, though; I'm speaking specifically of phobias; not a mild fear. If you've spoken to me enough here, than you probably know what my phobia is: Lilapsophobia. I;E, the irrational fear of tornadoes and hurricanes. I'll just give you my brief story about this. I'll be honest; I never liked storms when I was very young, and I would definitely say I was afraid of them. I wouldn't call it a phobia back then, though, due to the fact that it was basically just a childhood fear of mine. I won't lie; I don't mind thunderstorms too much now... or at least, I would be saying that. While I'm not afraid of standard thunderstorms anymore, my fear of them seemed to evolved somehow. Instead of me being afraid of thunderstorms, now I'm afraid of what they can become. This is the point where I discuss how this affects my life... There is not a single day in summer that I'm not anticipating the absolute worst case scenario. Not. One. It could be a sunny day without a single cloud in the sky, and I would still be thinking about what might happen later. Not only this, but it has significantly affected how I travel during summertime. I'm always paranoid about leaving my house, to the point where I pretty much never go anywhere in summer. The storms aren't the only reason I strongly dislike summer (bugs, heat, noise...), but it's one of the aspects that contributes the most. In short, summertime is an absolutely miserable experience for me, thanks to my lilapsophobia. I know how stupid this is to, but I just can't control it! Every single damn time a thunderstorm rolls through, my heart starts racing for the first few minutes, I start listening to my music louder, I'm not as wiling to speak to people... it's just a mess. Granted, I'll usually calm down within 10 minutes (unless it's a severe storm), but that doesn't stop the cycle from repeating. Oh, and don't even get me started on how I act when there's an actual tornado watch (or worse, warning) issued. Anyways... with my little tirade out of the way, do you suffer from any Phobias? If so, what is it of, and how does it affect your life? Thanks in advance for any responses!
  5. Now i know theres a lot of discussion out there between referring to people on the forums as pony folk or people folk. Dont be afraid to express why you favor one vs the other by posing a comment. I know that some hate it when people use 'everypony' when they are posting and some use it all the time. What do all you think?
  6. (I'm not sure if there's already a thread like this, but eh) I feel like some people today misunderstand what the military is about, and this goes for any branch (Army,Marines,Etc.) Here's an example of what I mean: A few months ago I had to go to the doctors for a check-up. My doctor who was going to do my check up came into the room and apparently one of the other nurses told her that I have enlisted into the Navy. Before she even starts with the actual procedure. She seems to be a bit mad with me and starts ranting on about how it's a terrible idea and that all I'm going to be doing is mopping the deck 24/7. Which is not true because when you enlist, you go to MEPS and they assign you a job that you choose for (based on your ASVAB scores). Then she says that I'm going to end up being poor, college is better, etc. This frustrated me at the time because just imagine having to make a decent decision in enlisting in the military that could help better you life, then have it crushed by someone that has no experience in the military telling you what you should do with your life. Another thing that happened was when i told my friends about me enlisting. Then they told me that the Navy is "useless". idk if that's just me overthinking all this, but what do you all think about the topic of others misunderstanding the military?
  7. What kind of gaming do you do? (Genres, MMO, Casual, Esports, Etc.) What's going on in gaming that sparks your interest? Xbox or Playstation? Better yet, console or PC? What game(s) have you been playing recently? You trying to find someone to play with? Some of your all time favorite games, moments in gaming, and etc. Free to reminisce, discuss, and meet gamers!
  8. If you could switch bodies with anyone or anything what would it be? I curious to see what you guys say. Edit: to be specific, it can me permanent or temporary
  9. I'm sure most of us have looked up to someone at some point our lives. Whether it's your parent, a celebrity, a sportsman, or anything in between, some people just... inspire us, you know? I was kinda wondering if any of you guys and gals had any individual who you hold in high regard. With an added bonus question... if you have had a role model... did you ever surpass them? If you looked up to the local guitarist, did you ever outperform them? If you looked up to the county priest, did you ever spread the word even better than he or she did? If you admired your college's top sports player, did you ever defeat them in a game? While I personally don't have any role models right now, I'm sure many other people do! With that said, I'm looking forward to hearing what you all have to say about this!
  10. I myself have severe generalized anxiety disorder(that in my opinion should have been diagnoses as panic disorder, but I was already on some medication when they officially diagnosed me, so they never saw it's true severity) and pretty bad depression. I was wondering if any of you guys have battled or are currently battling any mental illnesses. If you're not comfortable opening up about it in full detail, that's totally okay. But if you want to talk about it, how has it affected your life? What are some things you do to make yourself better? And do you have any tips or words of encouragement for the others here? Hugs to everyone who replies and everyone who doesn't reply but still deals with these things! You're all super strong and amazing people, and I'm proud of you!
  11. Do you have trouble sleeping? How much sleep do you get? I've always been a light sleeper, it's gotten particularly bad the last week after losing a family member, I'm going to attempt to sleep properly tonight with Diazepam.
  12. So out of all the dreams and what not we experience during sleep, what is one of the stranger dreams or occurrences you have experienced. (from dreams to sleep walking or talking) I'll start One time when I was young, perhaps six years old, I had a race car bed that had a large spolier on the back that you could use as a bookshelf. So it stood about a foot and a half from the mattress. One night I had a dream where I was walking up to the ledge of a cliff and below I could see a river, from what I could tell I was maybe 500 feet up. As I inched up to the edge of the cliff, it turns out I had actually sleep walked on top of my bed's spoiler. In my dream as I jumped off the cliff I did so in real life as. I quickly found this out when I hit my mattress and bounced. I actually woke up in mid air right after the bounce, I knew this because I felt the force on my neck. Before I could get out a "what is happening" I landed face first in my sheets confused as to what had just happened lol So that's mine, let's see what the rest of you got
  13. Hey guys! I just had a fun conversation with my family and one of my thoughts afterwords was "I could post this in the forums!" So hear I will ask the big question.... what is your favorite place to get pizza? This can be taken as far as you can think of. Like favorite type of pizza, best pizza restaurant, do you make your own pizza, or do you not even like pizza. Basically I just want to know your opinion on pizza also what kind of toppings do you like. And for restaurants, they can be chain, or even local! If it's a local pizza place, then a small description would be awesome. Thanks for stopping by this topic and let me know your thoughts!
  14. Because every other thread has been taken, lets talk about posters. Discuss what posters you have and what you think of them in general. I have an Adventure Time and Simpsons poster followed by 2 miscellaneous cars.
  15. Today while I was browsing through EQD, I came across this post of a new movie. https://www.equestriadaily.com/2018/06/new-equestria-girls-special.html It will air on July 7th on the Discovery Family channel during the Indepedence Day weekend at 11:30AM. Clearly a-fill-in for the current hiatus of Season 8. Feel free to discuss anything regarding this movie. I think there's a chance human Twilight may return to have a big role in the film.
  16. I sort of went through an emo phase, but I don't really consider it an emo phase because: I never acted like a stereotypical Emo It only lasted for a week or two But I have been through three phases! One was a Vegan phase, which lasted for only about a month, and I went through the stereotypical SJW phase, which lasted for a couple of months. I also went through the 'I'm old enough to take care of myself!!' phase, which I experienced when I was 12 and 13 . Other than that, I never really went through any hard core phases
  17. I want to get an overall feel for how much people like/dislike every season of Friendship is Magic and assessing which season is the most popular and which is the least. To test the waters, I thought I'd just do Season 1 to see if I want to do the rest.
  18. Unless you literally just sit in one position, thinking about nothing all day, we all have hobbies, and as we all know, our hobbies can evolve and change. What interests us as young adults most likely won't interest us when we reach our middle age, the same way that our interest differ from when we were children and now. With all of this said, sometimes we just move on from hobbies, whether it's on a positive or negative note. Unfortunately... we'll be talking about one of the more negative exits here. With all of this said... have you ever burned out on a hobby of yours? One day, you were enjoying the hell out of a hobby you were participating in, but the next thing you knew... you just weren't. If anything, you were starting to hate it. For me, I ended up being burned out on video games to the point where I barely play them anymore. Sure, I might be looking forward to the next Smash game on the Switch... but other than that, I really couldn't care less about gaming as a whole anymore. I don't know why, but not too long after I bought a Nintendo Switch, I just couldn't bring myself to play many of the games. No joke: of the 10 Switch games that I own, I only finished 4 of them. Even worse, of the aforementioned 10, I haven't even played 3 of them; I literally have not touched them yet (except for one, but it barely counts). So that means that I own 10 Switch games; Super Mario Odyssey, which I beat. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which I beat. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Which I beat. Skyrim, which I barely played. DOOM, which I played a little bit (great game, though; you should check it out). Sonic Forces, which I beat, but didn't like. Bayonetta 1 + 2, which I haven't touched yet. Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which I haven't touched yet. Scribblenauts Showdown, which I played for 10 minutes and nearly threw in the garbage. And Pokken Tournament, which I played a little bit. Oh, and do I need to mention the 50$ that I wasted on a Pro Controller? With my little rant out of the way, have you ever been involved in a hobby so much... and then, over the passage of time, just stopped caring? I'm honestly wondering if anyone else has gone through what I have at this point.
  19. *Disclaimer: This thread is meant to be about the singleplayer mode, not Red Dead Online. So Red Dead Redemption 2 has been out for a bit now, and most of us have had a chance to complete at least one playthrough (or at least get a decent ways into the game). Now, don't get me wrong, it's a damn good game, and gorgeous as hell, but it's not this level of good: This would imply there's literally nothing wrong or worthy of critiquing in the game, which is objectively just not true. So my question is, as the title says: what, in your opinion, is the biggest thing worth critiquing, the biggest drawback, the biggest annoyance you have with RDR2? Personally, I think mine would be the bounty/wanted system. While yes, the story does try and steer you towards an honorable playthrough (or at least ending), you are, at the end of the day, an outlaw-a criminal. And they appropriately included robbery mechanics-why include them if they're not meant to be used? But the way the wanted system works, from response time of the law, to the law's omniscience, to the convoluted and ill-explained (both in game and by the devs themselves) mechanic to remain anonymous, to the poor AI when it comes to receiving a bounty for self defense or NPC stupidity (seriously, get those horses some turn signals ), this entire portion of the game just seems poorly implemented at best, flat out broken at worst. Especially when it comes to non-story train robberies. There's simply no way whatsoever to get in and get out before the law arrives, and they spawn whether a witness actually gets away or not, and spawn within seconds of you taking out the engineer. This is one of the most lucrative activities in terms of time-efficiency and payout (unless you google gold bar locations and hunt them down, but that feels like cheating); but with how it's working it's pointless because you get a bounty worth as much or more than the loot you snag from the train. Kind of takes the 'outlaw' out of actually being...well, an outlaw. And what's sad is Rockstar is likely not going to implement a fix for this, because it would require a drastic overhaul of a base/core system from the ground up. I'd say that's something that would/should detract from a perfect 100 review score, hm? I also agree with a lot of the points made in this vid-the good and the bad-and I'd be curious to hear people's thoughts on this as well (also linking this vid because I like sharing teh lulz ):
  20. Hey everypony! Hope y'all are well. Alright, so here's an interesting topic: Embarrassing stories from school. What is the most embarrassing thing to happen to y'all during school? I'll go first, if you like. I've always been a MASSIVE nerd. Especially at primary school. Because I had no problem showing off whatsoever. I decided to teach the class about making games using this terrible 3D sandbox game, it was a bit like minecraft but not with blocks. I stood at the front of the class, all ready to show the bored students of Yr5's something unneccesary. I was also extremely nervous, so much that I was shaking. I fumbled with a pen for a while, trying to write on the board. My handwriting looked awful and pretty much everyone was already laughing. They hadnt seen anything yet! Things pretty much went wrong most for most of the so called lesson, until disaster struck. I felt very strange, and uncomfortable. I started fidgeting loads and I had no idea what was going on, until this kid called Brandon decided to shout and point at the top of his voice: "Look everyone! Jack's peed his pants!" Ahh. That would be it. The entire classroom fell silent for a moment, and every eye was on me. For someone with social anxiety, I would have had a heart attack. Luckily I had no such thing back in the day, so I didn't die. Instead my face looked like a burning tomato and my eyes slowly began to feel like they would literally explode. After the brief, painful moment of silence, the room exploded with laughter. Okay, that's enough. Now that I actually do have Social Anxiety, this is bringing back too many memories. I'm still in high school, so it really wasn't that long ago. Ramble away everypony! Lets celebrate the most memorable catastrophes of school life!
  21. Calling everypony to discuss with me about this military extinct, it looks like somepony doesn't like Military and this is getting off now... not to mention i'm the only military in the fandom while others are powerful that can even control the universe [doesn't make any scene]. I can use my magic is just that my pony and myself OC is not that powerful, if i'm am powerful(not that much i don't like being much powerful) other OC will destroy me instead. The explanation is long so yeah.... leaving military stuff behind is making me weak now... other than that im a weak Alicorn.... who uses military as a defense. Tanks,Ships and Aircraft <the only thing i used in my story-line to defend> well my final tank production in the storyline is PT-91M AP "Pendakwa" which only produces 1 only, the rest of the military is still in a progress of removing. Vehicles that stay in my story-line are :- 1x M4 Ponyman (M4 Sherman) 1x Reconnaissances Aircraft 1x Afiq's mighty BB ship 1x PT-91 AP "Pendakwa" other vehicles will be removed in my storyline due to Brony strike..... there will no more ships,aircraft and tanks except the one is created for purpose use only or defense or escape from other OC's. i know you guys can't understand but i will start to change all of this soon.... changing storyline is not an easy task..... Hope the MLP Forums understand what kind of problem i'm having..... soon or enough... some of them might do a youtube video about me.
  22. So in honor of the Ocarina of Time Event lets share our favorite and least favorite parts of the game.
  23. So, there's always been one thing that's bothered me about the world of MLP:FIM, and that's with some of the items in the world. Things like, teacups and other things with handles that just weren't meant for a pony to hold. I mean, have you SEEN a pony hold a teacup by the handle? (Pinkie Pie's hair doesn't count ) So, it honestly makes me wonder, why would the pony's create such items that they can't even use? You COULD say it's a visual element but I mean, the show has adjusted items to fit for a Pony, like cameras. So why are teacups with handles still a thing? So I was thinking of this and maybe the answer lies beyond Equistria's borders. I mean, inside we got primarily hooved ponies, Dragons(who don't really use teacups, aside for Spike ), and Gryphins, who CAN use teacups but they don't tend too, and they're not as many of them compared to the pony population. Yet outside, we got all kinds of various types of creatures, and a good chunk of them have actual hands or claws. So it makes me wonder, does Equistria import things like teacups from other places outside Equistria? Or do they just make it like that because teacups were always made with handles before Equistria was even founded? Anyways, just some of my thoughts on it, what do you guys think of the subject?
  24. Like what it says what are some of yours? Everything from TV shows, music, films, books, women/men, hobbies ect.. ect.. ext. I shamefully have seen every episode of sex in the city, via my own choice. You?
  25. Fanfiction is one of the backbones of just about any fandom, but sorting through it all can be a freaking nightmare! Bronies have a well-organized and dedicated site in FimFiction, but most other fandoms aren't so lucky. Everything is crammed into just two sites really (fanfiction.net and Archive of Our Own), and navigating them can be a chore. First, 99% of what you find is GOING to be yaoi; great if that's your thing, annoying to slog through if not. Then there are the innumerable bad crossover fics, dark fics, self-inserts, etc. All can and HAVE been done very well in the past, but most of what you'll find isn't really up to an avid reader's standards. Unfortunately, ordering by popularity is rarely a good option, as you'll inevitably find that being "popular" doesn't necessarily mean "well written". You can check the TVtropes fanfic recommendation pages and occasionally turn out something you'll like, but those usually very limited and skip a lot of great stuff. You can ask a friend who's an avid fanfic reader for suggestions, but we don't all have those. You can try checking the fanfic-talk threads on the SpaceBattle or other large forums, but some of those are thousands of pages long and super intimidating for a newbie. Worst case scenario, you end up just reading bits of various stories to see if they appeal to you, but that means countless hours of reading stuff that you'll mostly end up dismissing (and even if you find something interesting, a good start doesn't necessarily equal a good story). I'm honestly out of ideas myself. If I want to find a good "Kingdom Hearts" or "My Hero Academia" story, I look at the sheer volume of what's available, get intimidated, and give up almost immediately. I've gotten too used to just having popular fics pop up in a neat sidebar for me and sorting through just a few new stories each day, and can't bring myself to spend an afternoon searching a massive archive for a single story to entertain me. So, what do YOU do when you're searching for something to read? Is there a place you go to get recommendations? A method you use to help make browsing more effective? A special site you visit? I'm eager to hear what you have to say! P.S. Please note that I'm not dumping on "bad" fanfictions here; just pointing out that there are a lot of readers who are very picky, either due to limited interests or high standards.
