  3. Hello, everyone. Due to a lot of recent events, as well as just not watching the show as regularly as I used to among other things, I have decided it would be best for me to just leave the fandom... I may still come back here on rare occasion, but, ultimately, I no longer consider myself much of a Brony or even just a fan of the show anymore... During these past few months in the fandom, I have recently experienced nothing but drama among much of the so-called "Horse Famous" parts of the community, I have lost friendships that I've either never been able to fully restore or just couldn't get back, a lot of the people in the fandom I liked have moved on to other things, I feel like I joined too late and my most recent memories of the fandom have just been bad. I'd like for things to change, but, right now it seems like there isn't a chance of that happening and even then, I have been moving on to other interests. Before I finally leave, I just wanted to say thank you to all my friends for putting up with me for this long. If by any chance you still want to contact me, I'm primarily on Discord as Nightfall Gloam#5622. I'm not quite sure how to end this but, for me, being in the fandom recently has only felt like more and more of a chore and I do just feel like I should just put all this behind me and start doing more things I might actually enjoy... It was fun being in the fandom for the brief period of 2014-2016 when I first joined but, it hasn't felt the same ever since, and I honestly believe the fandom is shrinking anyway and from my perspective, it just feels like the people still in the fandom aren't really all that passionate about the show or certain aspects of the fandom like they used to be... Over the years, I might remember my time here fondly and forget a lot of the bad stuff, as the human mind tends to do after long periods of time, but, ultimately, there is nothing that can be done to bring me back in to the fandom, and if you still want to contact me regularly, I'm on Discord. -Nightfall Gloam
  4. Call it a full-on a ship or a close friendship between two ponies with less than stellar pasts; it's apparent that these two share a connection and do care for one another. As such let us celebrate with a club for these two. <3 All forum rules apply; keep that in mind.
  5. Mane 6 (and Spike!) Applejack This relationship has definitely seen the most development. From barely being able to stand each other for more than a few hours in “Look Before You Sleep”, they now seem to be quite firm friends. Of course, Rarity still tries to get Applejack to be more ladylike, and Applejack still thinks Rarity needs to be less fussy, but overall, they seem to have come to an understanding of each other. Applejack’s selflessness devotion to her family has helped Rarity strengthen her bond with Sweetie Belle, where before she was a little selfish. Applejack taught her the importance of compromising. Highlights: Episode 46. “It’s About Time”: Applejack fixes the crack in the dam, while Rarity fixes up the leaves in AJ’s mane. Episode 53-54. “The Crystal Empire”: Applejack cheers Rarity up with a kind word in “The Crystal Empire”. Episode 61. “Spike at Your Service”: Rarity teaches Applejack how to play the “damsel in distress”. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: Applejack says bluntly, “Yep, you were pretty rotten…” Episode 78. “Simple Ways”: They each parody the other. Twilight Sparkle I don’t usually ship Mane Six members together, but when I do, it’s Rarilight. If I were one to let subtext reign supreme, I would believe these two are already in a relationship. Right from the first episode, Rarity has been very touchy-feely with Twilight. Just go watch the end of “The Crystal Empire”, and tell me she doesn’t act rather tenderly towards Twilight there. She was the first to start singing, went to Twilight to raise her head up with a gentle touch to the chin when Twilight blushed, and put her hoof over Twilight’s as the train left. Sorry, Spike, you’re losing out to your adopted big sister. Even if you ignore the subtext, it’s clear Rarity has a strong regard for Twilight. She noticed she was bothered in “Lesson Zero”, she worried about Twilight not having her crown in Equestria Girls, and most importantly, although she wanted to marry a prince and be a princess, she has never once expressed the slightest sense of jealousy that Twilight is now a Princess and not her. That’s pretty telling, because she was jealous of Fluttershy, and they’re probably the two who spend the most of their time together. Highlights Episode 16. “Sonic Rainboom”: Rarity rump bumps Twilight to encourage her to find a spell. Episode 29. “Lesson Zero”: Rarity calls Twilight a drama queen, after a day of non-stop drama. Episode 53-54. “The Crystal Empire”: Rarity starts the song to Twilight. Rainbow Dash Rarity’s relationship to Rainbow is similar to Applejack, only with a lot less butting of heads. They don’t usually interact, and when they do, it’s pretty low key. We mostly see Rarity doing nice things for Rainbow, like making her a pretty dress for Princess Celestia’s visit, or supporting her in competitions... at first. Not much else to say. Highlights Episode 14. “Suited for Success”: Rarity facedesks when Rainbow can’t be any clearer about her dress than it needs to be cooler. Episode 47. “Dragon Quest”: Rarity tells Rainbow she was surprised her plan worked, and gets a rump to the face in response. Episode 61. “Spike at your Service”: Rarity gives Rainbow a very snarky response to her fanfiction plot, which goes right over Rainbow’s head. Episode 75. “Rainbow Falls”: Rarity takes the relay horseshoe to paint it, to Rainbow’s annoyance. Fluttershy Indications are that Rarity and Fluttershy have been firm friends for a very long time. They often have spa dates together, and Rarity frequently tries to bring Fluttershy out of her shell. Being the prettiest and second-most ladylike Mane Six, they seem to have a lot in common. Their Elements are also quite compatible, since Generosity is being giving with one’s possessions and Kindness is being giving with one’s time and emotion. Other indications of their closeness include Fluttershy helping Rarity with Opal, Rarity calling on her when she needs someone to fly up and help her borrow the Castle decorations. She also tried very hard to be happy for Fluttershy when she caught the eye of Photo Finish, and felt terrible when she was envious. She also very quickly forgave Fluttershy for the vicious tongue-lashing she got in “Putting your Hoof Down”. Highlights Episode 17. “Stare Master”: Rarity is speechless when a quiet word from Fluttershy pulls the CMC into line. Episode 45. “Putting Your Hoof Down”: Rarity pushes a slack-jawed Pinkie’s mouth closed after Fluttershy stands up to Iron Will. Episode 57. “Magic Duel”: Rarity creates a camouflage outfit for Fluttershy that includes bunny ears. Episode 79. “Filli Vanilli”: Rarity quickly picks up on Fluttershy’s eagerness to continue singing. Pinkie Pie Again, not really much to say here. Rarity is sometimes exasperated at Pinkie’s antics, and can even be quite stern with her, but they tend to get along very well most of the time. Pinkie also seems to put some trust in Rarity. In “Last Round-up”, she simply leaps off the stagecoach and tells Rarity to catch her. Highlights Episode 7. “Dragonshy”: Pinkie beats Rarity at Tic-Tac-Toe… 35 times in a row. Episode 45. “Putting Your Hoof Down”: Pinkie and Rarity team up to help Fluttershy be more assertive, but she does so badly that Pinkie buries her head in the ground. Rarity tries to comfort her with a gentle hoof on her mane. Episode 62. “Keep Calm and Flutter On”: Rarity checks her reflection in Pinkie’s newly polished hooves. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: After Rarity delivers her “going down in flames, isn’t friendship magic?” line, Pinkie gives her a sheepish grin and nods agreement. Spike This is one of the most important and talked about relationships in the series. Ironically, given that FiM doesn’t have much by way of romance. A lot of people give Rarity grief over what they see as her taking advantage of him. In some ways, they’re right, but it’s actually much more of a give and take than is sometimes recognized. Yes, she gets him to do stuff for her, but most of the time, Spike’s perfectly okay with it. And she’s hardly the only Mane Six who does. She also frequently gives him rewards for his troubles, such as gems to eat, a carrot-dog, etc. She also sticks up for Spike frequently, and went to great lengths to keep him safe in “Dragon Quest”. It’s clear that she does care for him in her own way. I suspect that Rarity simply doesn’t know exactly how to handle Spike’s precocious crush on her. After all, by the standards of dragonhood, Spike is not even a teenager yet. She can’t view him as a romantic prospect, but she cares for him and certainly wouldn’t want to hurt his feelings. So, until she can find a way to let him down gently, she keeps their relationship at status quo. Perhaps in her mind, letting him do things for her is a way of showing that she does want him to be around. Not always, of course, but I think that’s a large part of it. Highlights Episode 19. “A Dog and Pony Show”: Spike valiantly defends Rarity from the Diamond Dogs. Episode 36. “Secret of My Excess”: The most touching Rarity-Spike moment, as he tries to confess while falling, only for her to shush him and show that she already knows. Episode 61. “Spike at your Service”: She takes a bite out of his terrible pie to make him happy. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: Rarity gives Spike that carrot-dog, which is promptly stolen by a bird. He has it again later, so either he got it back or bought a replacement. Family: Parents, Sweetie Belle and Opal Rarity seems to be deliberately avoiding taking after her parents, who seems like very friendly, if unsophisticated types. Middle class is probably a good way to describe them. We don’t yet know if her dad is a unicorn or earth pony, due to his hat. (BREAKING NEWS - He actually is a unicorn, as shown in "Imagination Manifestation"!) She hasn’t really interacted with them enough to get much of an idea of how close she is to them. While Opal can be temperamental, she seems to have affection for Rarity in her own enigmatic cat way. Her moods follow Rarity’s, and she tries to remind her mistress of her priorities at times. Opal seems to stoically suffer some of Rarity’s more whimsical tendencies, such as her baby-talking and coddling. Rarity’s relationship with Sweetie Belle is the focus of a fair number of episodes. While their sisterly relationship has had its ups and downs, Sweetie Belle clearly looks up to Rarity, and Rarity clearly loves her and tries to do good things for her. While she took her a bit for granted in earlier seasons, Rarity has gotten much better at compromising, mainly due to the events of “Sisterhooves Social”. Where before she would put her own comfort and desires first, she’s now more willing to sacrifice them for Sweetie’s sake. The most recent episodes have shown that Sweetie has long been harbouring a grudge for Rarity overshadowing her, and they may become even closer now that Sweetie has realized that Rarity doesn’t want to keep her in her shadow. Highlights Episode 31. “Sisterhooves Social”: We get to meet Rarity’s parents. This episode also improves the sisters’ relationship. Episode 35. “Sweet and Elite”: Opal taps the design for Twilight’s dress, and is annoyed when Rarity doesn’t notice. Episode 58. “Sleepless in Ponyville”: Despite despising camping and “all that… ugh… nature”, Rarity is willing to brave the wilderness for her sister… as long as no heavy hauling for her is involved. Sweetie doesn’t seem to mind, just being glad that Rarity is there. Romantic Prospects Fancy Pants Catching the eye of this stallion is one of the best things ever to happen to Rarity. He’s also later appeared in Ponyville and Manehatten. Could he be following Rarity around? And is that supermodel pony who always hangs on him just eye candy, or a romantic partner? For Rarity’s sake, I hope not! Trenderhoof Creepy shrine? Check. Trying everything she can to win him over? Check. Learning that changing yourself for someone else is a bad thing? Check. Getting over him? Antagonists: Discord Along with most of the others, Rarity is skeptical of Discord’s change of heart. She blames him for the embarrassment of making her think a rock was a diamond, and so she has little patience or sympathy for him. Photo Finish Photo Finish was rather abrupt to her, made Fluttershy a star and caused Rarity to feel like she had betrayed her best friend by being so jealous. Photo Finish has yet to return in a speaking part, but she was present in a cameo during “Sweet and Elite”, so we could speculate that Rarity is over it. Prince Blueblood Apart from acting like a prat, he used her as a pony shield against flying cake. In the dress she was terrified somepony would spill something on in “A Bird in the Hoof”. A crime against fashion! After she told him just what she thought of him, she was forced to flee, and smashed her glass slipper so that he couldn’t find her. Despite this, he also had a cameo, so perhaps she has forgiven him too. Trixie Although Trixie has done some nasty things to her, Rarity seems to dislike Trixie mainly because of how she treated Twilight. Perhaps we can learn more if Trixie gets another episode (I’m counting the minutes ). Suri Polomane Suri represents what Rarity could become if she lost her sense of generosity. And morals in general. Although Rarity was deeply hurt by her betrayal, she didn’t try to excuse her own bad behaviour towards her friends. She also doesn’t seem to feel a need to get revenge on Suri for taking advantage of her generosity. Perhaps she considers Suri losing her talented assistant, Coco Pommel, to be punishment enough. And with that, I draw this three-part analysis of Rarity to a close. Do you think I was accurate? Do you disagree with my points or have something more to add? Any comments are welcomed. Until next time, stay Rarity-side up!

    Lyra & Bon Bon Fan Club

    ~WELCOME TO THE LYRA & BON BON FAN CLUB!~ Feel free to share anything to do with these two cute little ponies, whether you ship them (if you dislike shippings and art/love for them, feel free to turn back now ^^) or see them as closest friends! Forum rules and commonsense apply, and please try not to just post about only one of them; there's a fanclub for both Lyra and Bon Bon individually if that's what you're looking for~ ~FANWORKS~ ~Have fun!~
  7. I've read articles about how people are prone to use different language in different social settings (code switching). I try not to swear for the most part because I consider it wrong, but I do if I'm really angry or upset. And I'm a lot "cleaner" in front of my family than my friends, but I guess that's true for a lot of people.
  8. Have you been to a sleepover? If not, do you plan on having or going to one in the future?

    New Discord Server For Brony Musicians

    Hey, everypony! It seems that I've been way too far away from the pony fandom for too long. So, to get things going again, I've had the idea to start up a Discord server for any and all brony musicians. This chat is open to every brony musician of every skill level. Are you a veteran that has been making pony music since 2011 or have you just started your journey into pony music? No matter the case, you're welcome in this server. I have a lot of plans that I would really love to come to fruition from this server. Some things include: Contest announcements Collaboration efforts Themed compilation projects General Feedback from music and WIPs An active community of friends Right now, seeing as the member list is pretty nonexistent, I don't have any needs for mods, but those positions will open up as I need. As for right now, I just want something that like-minded musicians can talk freely with one another. To be honest, I'll try to keep watch of everything on my phone, while I'm away from my computer. Of course, I can be away for long stretches of time, seeing as working as an EMT can make you pretty busy. I hope ya'll will come and join the party! Edit: In light of recent events, the invite link is closed. Please DM AppleBukker #3206 if you would like to join

    Do you ever hug your friends?

    Hey there, pals! I thought I could pop by with this simple question, if you don't mind me askin'! Do you ever hug your friends? I do it with some, probably because when we first met we did this, and so this became tradition...I wouldn't know honestly, but this works out with only some of them, and only after we hung out and everybody has to go home.
  11. 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.
  12. 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...
  13. Would it be possible to give users the option to only receive PM's from users they follow? This would save some people from having to deal with unsolicited PMs from people they don't know, and having to delete the PM or block the user each and every time. Thanks, ChB

    The things I'm thankful for

    Hello, everyone! Since it's the weekend, I just wanted to spend some time writing something I feel like I should say... I am truly grateful for everything in my life thus far, and that includes my family, my girlfriend, my friends, and even just my life in general. Things might not be perfect, but, the closer we get to Christmas and the New Year, I just can't help but say thank you... Thank you to everyone in my life, and thank you to the universe for teaching me, helping me grow, letting me find out who I really am, and just having a lot of fun throughout the year... Since the start of this year, I have learned what it is truly like to love someone, what it means to have friends, and I have finally faced many challenges in my life that I previously ignored, and I hope to continue to do so well into 2018, 2019, 2020 and beyond! To the members of MLP Forums, I am truly sorry that I ever left you guys behind. I missed being here a lot, especially since this place was my first Brony community I ever hung out on, and this place was my first glimpse of what its like to be a part of this fandom. I am proud to be a member of this website, and proud to be a Brony. Don't know what my life would be like if I had never become a Brony in the first place... Over the next few years, I also plan on getting much more into films, digital art and animation (perhaps also music as well...), in fact I've already started work on an animation now, and who knows where that might go in the future... -Nightfall Gloam. That 19 year old guy that lurks around in the background and might be a little ambitious...
  15. My friend started watching Degrassi: The Next Generation after I told him that I watch it. It's funny because he used to make fun of his mom and brother for watching it because he thought it was stupid and over the top(which it can be) but now he loves it and is already at season 4 and decided to purchase seasons 1 through 10 off amazon. Unfortunately for me Drake plays one of the main characters on the show and when he first appeared my friend sent me a message saying "You used to call me on my cellphone." and I "Please don't tell me you're going to send that every-time Jimmy is on screen." and he "I probably will." That continued for a few days till I broke responded with this. We had a good laugh with that one and he stopped after awhile thank god.
  16. What do you guys think about these creepy Friends fan theories circulating around internet? .. Btw, this is only for fun and discussion so please dont get pissed off. Let me know ur opinion..
  17. So this is something I struggle with quite often; exposing friends and family to the show in hopes that they will like it and want to continue watching it with me. Whenever I approach them about it they are hesitant and I almost have to "convince" them to give it a shot. I use quotations around convince because I'm using that term loosely, because honestly who needs to be convinced to watch something? But as we all know when we want to show someone ponies, with the hopes that they will like it, we know there's a barrier in their minds to overcome. To accept that they'll be watching the children's show that GASP! they might actually enjoy! I've only have successfully gotten one person to like ponies, enough to have a conversation and watch new episodes with, and that is my fiancè. (Praise Celestia it was him because that makes it so much fun!) But for example I tried to have my IRL BFF watch the first couple of episodes and I just feel like it wasn't given a unbiased shot. I have also accepted the thought that not everyone will like or connect with the characters, storyline, etc. And that is fine with me. But when I feel like the person is closed minded and watching it just for my sake, they're really missing out and they make a misinformed decision. So I ask, how do you go about exposing friends or family members to MLP, that you'd like to share the magic of friendship with? How many friends have you "converted" to become bronies or someone that is at least interested in MLP enough?

    My Face When...

    When I meet a new special friend! When I get to the con, I hope to make this face a whole bunch of times!
  19. Do you watch MLP with any of your family members, like parents, siblings, cousins, or maybe even your friends, or relationship partners? What do they think of the show, and what are their points of view on it? I watch MLP with my mom, and even though she's not in the fandom cause she doesn't follow anything, she doesn't read fanfics, she doesn't listen to music, or look at the art. She just watches the show, and enjoys it! She doesn't make a big deal over it, but she gets pissed when I watch an episode without her! XD She has some opinions of the show that are common with mine, and some that are different! Fluttershy is her favorite! She also really likes Rainbow and AJ! She doesn't like Pinkie cause she's too hyper. She has mixed feelings with Twilight, and she's okay with Starlight. She doesn't like Discord. She likes all the CMCs, and she likes Scootaloo best mainly cause she pities her and thinks she's an orphan cause her parents never showed up on the show. She likes Spike as well! She doesn't like Rarity though cause she's a drama-queen, and she doesn't like how she treats Spike, much like my opinion of Rarity. I DO like Rarity! I think she's a good character, and her drama queen moments are funny! But I agree that I don't like how Rarity uses Spike's crush on her to get him to do stuff she wants, which is pretty much why I want the crush to end. My mom does although like Flurry Heart, and the entire Apple family, and all of the princesses! She likes Celestia best because she's colorful! How about anybody you know? What are their opinions of the show?
  20. It's kind of odd to see someone questioning the idea of friendship within a group dedicated to it. And yet, I still question. So, what is friendship? And I challenge you not to immediately jump to the obvious answer of "magic". The show and, of course, the fandom has conditioned you to say that. But have you stepped back and considered the connections that you make with others across miles of land and ocean? How close are they? How many do you maintain? Can they be as strong as a relationship created in "real life"? But first, some definitions: Our lovely friend Merriam Webster defines friends as: a person you like and enjoy being with But you already knew that. If you didn't like somebody, you wouldn't be friends. However, this doesn't address a reciprocal relationship, so, in theory, you could simply proclaim to be someone's friend without their consent, and it would be true. Now compare that to Merriam Webster's definition of...: Love: a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person Affection: a feeling of liking and caring for someone or something Magic: special power, influence or skill So, one could assume that a friendship contains at least some love, no matter the circumstances. Sure, a best friend's love is on a different level than that of a crush or the like, but love remains. On the topic of "friendship is magic", based on this definition only, I'd say that's true. Friendship can certainly influence others into doing things, and it most certainly has power. But I think that its power is hyped too far by some. I know this is a lot of information, but I'd also like to point to Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis. In his work, Civilization and Its Discontents, he says that love within a person is finite. You can love or make friends with as many people as you'd like, but with each relationship that you tack on, the individual gets less and less love. And considering strangers, he says the following: "Not merely is this stranger on the whole not worthy of love, but, to be honest, I must confess he has more claim to my hostility, even to my hatred." Human nature tends to hate strangers, simple as that. He also goes on to say that your strongest love at all times is that of yourself. We, as humans, as naturally egocentric. So, given the information above, what do you agree with; what do you think? How does this relate to the fandom? Consider the problems when looking at people on Facebook with over 1000 "friends". And, even here on the forums, that problem can exist. Though I don't have a lot of evidence to go off of, that problem must exist. Surely, one with hundred of friends cannot possible have high levels of relationships with them all. Granted, I have been here for a bit over a month, sporadically. I also have four friends, here, only one of which I communicate with consistently. So, perhaps I'm blind to the "magic" so many speak of. (This is not a plea to get more friends, by the way, but, I admit, a guilt trip can go a long way).

    Pony with an imaginary friend?

    Strangely enough, it never occurred to me until "Imaginary Mary" premiered on FOX. Why hasn't DhX covered an episode with a pony with imaginary friends? What if such a pony preferred their imaginary friends over real friends? What about an adult pony who still has their imaginary friends? Do you guys think this would make a good episode?

    The best kind of friendship

    Human A : "What the! You bastard, what the hell was that!?" Human B : "Huh!? What are you talking about?" Human A : "Don't play dumb! You just douse me with a jug of water!" Human B : "I told ya, I didn't do anything!" Human A : "If it wasn't you then who is it?" Human B : "How should I know?" Human A : "Wanna fight!?!" Human B : "Hmm, bring it on!" Human C : "Hey hey, what do we have here? Allow me to join you two!" Human D : "This cupcake's really good. (Human A accidentally smack him in the head) Awwwww!!! What the f*** are you idiots thinking ur doin? Human A : "Get outta the way, jackass! We're having a fight here!" Human D : "At least don't bother me while I'm eating ........ (human A punch human D again ..... on purpose) That's it, you ask for it! Die you piece of ....." Twilight : "ENOUGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Human A, B, C, D : "Huh???!!!!" Twilight : "Why, why would you do this? For such close friends to fight and insult one another. Isn't true friendship supposed to be about being nice to each other?" Rainbow Dash : "Don't forget about being loyal." Applejack : "Honest." Rarity : "Generous." Pinkie Pie : "And having fun!" Fluttershy : "What you just did was not very nice at all (Almost crying)." Twilight :"You four should be ashamed of yourselves." Human A: "Twilight, I.....I.....I... am so sorry." Human B: "Come to think about it, you're right Twi." Human C: "We just embarrassed ourselves." Human D: "Thank you for opening our eyes Twi." Twilight : "I am glad you understand. Now that you've learned a new lesson about friend............. (Smiling)." Human A : "Alright then, guys. From now on .................... we are no longer friends." Human B : "YESSSSSSSSS! Now we can slaughter each other without feeling remorse!" Human C : "hell yeah, you ***holes better be ready!". Human D : "hehehehe, it was so nice while our friendship lasted, wasn't it? Twilight : "NO NO NO NO NO, WAIT!!!! That's not what we ........." Human E : "Hahahahahahaha! Don't worry Twi, these dumbasses are always like this" Twilight : "But why? They are your best friends, aren't they? You should stop them, not to mention you just insulted your own friends" Human E : "Once they fight, there is no way of stopping them. Besides, this is how we define true friendship." Rainbow Dash : "You call this friendship!?" Human E : "Yup." Fluttershy : "I don't understand how fighting and insulting one another can be called friendship."
  24. Have you ever did a experiment on your friends impressions? Have you ever wondered how they would've view something new under certain circumstances? Have you ever wondered how context would effect someone's perception? Well you're not alone. I enjoy and often try to do these kinds of experiments. Sometimes I would try to have one of my nonBrony friends who knows nothing about the show watch it pmv and give their impressions on the story and characters. And even sometimes have them give their theories on what they believe the story is. Sometimes I have someone listen to a playlist of the soundtrack of an obscure movie or video game and give their impression of what the music is trying to convey. They may not be scientific But I love experiments like this. I love seeing how people formulate their conclusion. It's so much fun to witness someone's imagination and thought process at work. ... ... Or am I actually alone here?

    Experiences/Encounters with Muslims?

    It's been a long while since I've been on this site. Mostly been trying to avoid spoilers. (I'm only 2/3 way through "A Heart's Warming Tale"!) Anyways guys, as some of you are aware, I'm a Muslim. I'd like to know, what experience(s) have you all had, if any, with Muslims? (NOT over the internet, in real life) What impact did it leave you with about Muslims and the religion of Islam in general? Did the experience(s) make you think highly or less of Islam? How did you respond/react? How did the Muslim behave towards you? Please share! This is a serious topic I've wanted to have for a long time with the fandom.
