  1. Welcome to my commission shop! Hey everyone, I'm MidnightFire1222, but most people just call me Midnight. I'm here today to offer my services to you as a digital artist, for a reasonable fee. I got into drawing when I was a teenager, but I've never seriously thought about selling it until maybe last year. Anyway, I'm sure you don't want to here about silly old me. What you want to hear about is what I can do. Prices With Examples A Few Guidelines to Remember I have a right to refuse a commission (I never have so far, so you probably don't ever need to worry about this). I have a job in the afternoon until night with hours that can potentially vary depending on the schedule, so I may not get your commission done right away, but I will always get it done. If you choose to commission me (and I must thank you if you do) I'll need either a description and/or a reference image. Reference picture(s) must be clear enough to give me an idea of what the character looks like If you can't find reference pictures then I need descriptive details (though I'm able to work with vague descriptions if given some artistic liberty) If the character is a pony, I'll need to see clearly what their cutie mark looks like (if they have one) IMPORTANT NOTE: Reference pictures and/or detailed descriptions are not required. I can work with vague descriptions. Refs/details are just helpful. These will always be posted on my deviantart, Facebook, Tumblr mod blog, Twitter and possibly Instagram. If you what like to remain anonymous when I add credits, you'll have to tell me so. Please be kind to one another. I don't think I have to spell it out more than that. What You'll Need to Include Character name Clear reference image (can be more than one, especially if there's more than one character) Cutie mark if applicable What kind of background you want if you choose to have a background What you'd like your character(s) to be doing (unless you want to leave it up to me) More examples of my art can be found on my deviantart If you have any questions regarding commissions, please read this by clicking here, or contact PathfinderCS. If you have any suggestions on what I could do to improve the way this post looks, feel free to tell me.
  2. One of my good friends Jeremy was on this hotline where you chat with random people and he met a girl named Sabrina there and they exchanged skypes and facebooks. Then he skyped with me and he added her to the call and we talked and now we are really good friends have been for a few years. This guy Kevin added me on Facebook randomly because of some issue his friend had with me and he looked at my profile and called me about it because I had my number public (not such a smart thing to do), and then after that he would call me a lot. We met in person, got pretty close and almost dated. I could keep going for a while, lol. I think its ironic how I've been taught not to talk to strangers online but some of the people that mean the most to me used to be just strangers online.
  3. Just kind of curious, because this forum is for MLP, which, you know, says friendship is MAGICAL. So, how often is it that you make friends? And how do you usually make them? And about how many friends do you have? Quite honestly, I really make no friends. I don't try to. I really don't have any common interests with anyone (#HipsterChick), so it's kind of hard to start conversations with people. Also, I have a lot of different standards and views on life that really just don't sit in the same pool as others'. I have only 2 legitimate friends, and the one is hardly a friend, he's more of an acquaintance.
  4. As we all know Twilight fot her cutie mark in magic. But as we find out later this isnt very special. As a lot of other unicorns got there cutie mark in magic. The two big ones we know of are Sun Burst and Starlight Glimmer. Sun Burst is good at combning complex spells even if he can't perform them himself. Starlight is able to create super spells and has been shown to use magic even alicorns can't compete with. Also I think at this point they've established that friendship is literally magic. I understand the literal point of this though. The show is just saying that you and your friends can to great things. But in the context of the show I think it means actual magic. So is this what Twilight's cutie mark means.
  5. (I might step on some people with my opinion. But i don't write this to hurt anybody. In the end, it's just my opinion.) There have been a number of many people, who demonized the Rio olympics for being held in a country with corruption, a poor society and the infamous zika virus, to the point that they simply don't want to watch these olympics. First of all, i want to make clear, that this is not what i am here to talk about. I always tried to not bring in politics into international sports events, because in my opinion they shouldn't belong in there. The Olympics for me, is more then just a mere sports event. It is THE Sports Event. Athletes from all around the World, come to one place, to compete in a friendly competition. It dosen't matter where they come from. It dosen't matter what religion they are part of and it dosen't matter what political believes they have. All they care about is the sport and to give their best. I think especially in times like these, where everybody is paranoid about death and terrorism being behind every corner, it is a great sign of peace and trust, for these athletes from all different cultures, to be all living in one place for almost 3 weeks. Be it Americans and Russians, South Koreans and North Koreans, or even Israelis and Palestinians. Some might call it cheesy, but i am a firm believer in the olympic spirit. Olympians don't get alot of money for competing, compared to Football/Soccer, Tennis, or Golf Tournaments, which puts the focus on the sport and the glory even more and i think this is a good sign. As i am writing this, i am watching synchronized diving and i am amazed by these great athletes. And i continue to have lots of fun.
  6. MLP has probably altered our lives for the better in significant ways, including mine. But, if I were to pick a specific instance, I'd say (quite ironically since the show seems to make friendships look like paradise) that I'm not afraid to be alone at times, like sitting at the lunch table or in class, albeit I still have friends with whom I hang out with time to time. But if you look at DJ Pon-3, she seems perfectly happy jamming to her beats and still looks hella cool even if she's not hanging out with someone. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that it isn't necessarily "embarrassing" to be by yourself, and that it's important to have a passion for something, because after all, when you really get into something you love, people with similar interests would come along and naturally become your friend. Isn't there a saying how to have interesting friends you have to be interesting yourself first? Everyone has unique talents, you just need to work hard at it and not give up. I am grateful that I do have a friend on my side (which was not the case for the past couple years when school was completely hell for me) and several track teammates that I can talk to. I know not everyone can just "have a positive outlook", the same way someone with depression can't just "stop being depressed". But, I hope it did help some.
  7. Who more is praying to the school of friendship BURNS in season 9 and make the show focus more on principal characters again? I guess i'm not the only one who not liked the idea of that school.... AND MORE, people are saying the season 9 will be the last one of the 4 generation, and if that happens, I dont want the last season of my little pony with that foolish students of the school of friendship.
  8. So, how this is gonna work! Is that you give a gift to one of your friends or all of your friends! By giving something they like! Make sure to include your friends and not leave anyone out! ( Example from me at the bottom of this! ) It's the one I did with Midnight Solace, but it doesn't have to be a plush!
  9. Ever since the World Cup ended, I have lurked around the forums in relative peace when I thought to myself... MLP Forums is not only a place where bronies of all kinds chat with each other. It is also a place where friendships are planted and grown into new heights. This thread is the place where you can share all your favourite stories and memories that you shared with friends on MLP Forums. I myself have many to share, but I would love to hear your stories as well! Below you'll see the template I have ready for you guys to write your stories! I'll use one of my stories as an example. Member: The story: It was last year when DJ and I first met. I was just browsing the "Christian Brony" thread on Sugarcuebe Corner when I found out a member who was a Presbyterian. I decided to shoot him a PM just to see what he was like, and that's how we got talking. But really, the awesomest memory that I got from him was that he was the one who introduced me to roleplaying in the first place! It was out of the blue when he asked whether I had heard of roleplaying, to which I said I didn't. It was then that he showed me just how awesome roleplaying was! That was especially because of all the potential there was in creating your own character and letting him interact with the rest of Equestria and with other characters... Even though it was just a friendly invitation, it was one that led me into a whole new world filled with so many other members... It was actually the basis of many more friendships to come, one of which I may talk about should this thread kick off... We even managed to complete our very first RP together, called A Tropical Odyssey. It would be an RP that made me that much more involved with the forums as a whole. Finally, everypony's welcome here, even couples! Share to us a story about how MLPF has helped you see the magic of friendship!
  10. YouTube URL: https://youtu.be/5TLPJHxkX5Q Cover Image: http://fav.me/dcjnhi2 "Friendship" is the song that its concept is based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Note that some of the parts are re-arranged from the My Little Pony one. Hope you guys love this :)
  11. Intro: Just so you know, even though this fanfiction focuses a bit on interactions between Vinyl and Octavia, I'm not shipping them. I don't have anything against people who do ship them, I'm just not much of a shipper, so if you want romance, you might want to look someplace else. With that out of the way, here's the rest of the intro: I was inspired to write this because I love cats but I've seen lots of stereotypes about them and I want to write about someone realizing the stereotypes are not true. Here's the story: One morning, Vinyl Scratch and Octavia Melody were sitting on their front steps, bored. Because they were bored, they were just saying whatever came into their minds in hopes of starting a conversation, when Octavia said, "I'd like a cat." "A cat?!" said Vinyl, "Cats think they're better than us. We don't want a pet that acts all superior!" "Cats don't think they're better than us," said Octavia. "What about Opalescence?" said Vinyl. "Opalescence doesn't think she's better than us, she's just a bit grumpy," said Octavia, "Just like how that griffon Gilda is grumpy, but she's not arrogant. And besides, Opal is Rarity's cat so she's probably all fancy-pants because her owner is." They forgot about cats, until one day, they were visiting Fluttershy. "Do you want to adopt a pet?" asked Fluttershy. "Well, I was thinking about getting a cat," said Octavia. "Really?" said Fluttershy. "That was just a thought Octy had when we didn't have anything better to do," said Vinyl. "Well, if you mares do want a cat, there's always this one. He's a tomcat. Here, kitty kitty!" Out walked a white cat with large eyes and a blue bow on his head. "Hi there, kitty," said Octavia in a baby voice. "Isn't he the one who tore up your curtains and hissed at Rainbow Dash during the cutie mark incident?" said Vinyl dubiously. "Oh, that was just because he was hungry," said Fluttershy, "If you feed him cat food at eight o'clock a.m and six o'clock p.m., he's as sweet as an angel!" "Why would I want a pet who only likes me because of food?!" said Vinyl. "He doesn't like us only because of food," said Octavia, "He just gets grumpy when he's hungry." By then, the cat had begun to rub up against Octavia and purr. "See?" said Octavia, "I didn't feed him and he still loves me. Don't you, schmookie-woo?!" "Don't tell me that's what you want to call him," said Vinyl. Octavia chuckled. "No, I'm going to call him Jeffrey." "So you're keeping him?" said Fluttershy. "Yes!" said Octavia before Vinyl could say anything else. When they got home, Jeffrey was asleep on Vinyl's sofa. "He'll get cat fur all over it!" said Vinyl. "But I can always dust it off," said Octavia. Vinyl hadn't interacted with Jeffrey until bedtime, but then, he jumped up onto her bed and purred. "You're not so bad after all," thought Vinyl.
  12. Doesn't it seem odd to anypony else that ponies and other creatures need to go to a school and be taught about a basic concept like friendship? And before the school then how did anypony get along and form bonds with others?
  13. IF you were a teacher at school of friendship, which music do you think is the best to you play for the students? Personally, I would play "Remember Me" or "Proud Corazon". The Mane 6, students and everypony will deeply love them as they teach us great advice about friendship and family.
  14. Hello. I decided to write this little fanfic because of the episode "Applebuck Season". In it, Applejack is staying up all night bucking apples so she is sleepy and mishears ingredients, which leads to some muffins being made that give some background ponies food poisoning. They're all fine now, but I imagined what if after getting better, Lyra becomes afraid to eat muffins again because she's worried she'll get food poisoning again? Then, I came up with this. It's mostly dialogue, and very short, but it's my first attempt at MLP fanfic. One morning, Lyra was prancing down the streets of Ponyville. She thought she'd stop for breakfast at Sugarcube Corner. When she got there, Bon Bon was sitting at a table, eating a muffin. "Hey, Lyra!" said Bon Bob, "want some of my muffin?". "Umm...no thanks," said Lyra, backing away hesitantly. "What?!" said Bon Bon, "that's not like you, Lyra! Normally, you barely leave any for me!" Lyra giggled. She was used to teasing like this from her best friend. "Well, the thing is, I'm scared," she said. "Scared?! Why in Equestria would you be scared of muffins?!" said Bon Bon. "Well, remember a few days ago when we ate those muffins and got sick? Pinkie Pie herself said that they weren't baked goods, but rather baked bads. I don't want to get sick again!". "Ly, it was a fluke!" said Bon Bon, "Pinkie said that she will always check the ingredients before making the muffins, and besides, they tasted terrible. We would've spat them out but we were afraid of being rude. But I say that if you don't like it, just spit it out." Just then, Pinkie Pie bounded over. "What's going on, you two wacky mares?" she said. "It's Lyra," said Bon Bon, "she's worried that the Baked Bads incident will happen again so she doesn't want to eat a muffin." "Don't worry, Lyra," said Pinkie Pie, "I now have a policy against having ponies who are sleepy help make the cakes, I check to see what they put and discard any muffins with yucky ingredients." She said this all in one breath, lay her head on her front hooves at the word "sleepy", and made a silly disgusted face at the word, "yucky". By this time, Bon Bon had finished her muffin, so Pinkie Pie ran out and got Lyra another muffin. She set down the muffin and said, as though Lyra was a stubborn foal, "Come on, Lyra-Wyra, just one bite!" Lyra leaned over the muffin and drooled, but she still looked hesitant. Then, Pinkie Pie burst into song, singing very quickly to the tune of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: "Lyra should eat the muffin. 'Cause it's very nice and sweet. She's always liked my muffins. And I'll make sure they're good to eat. Bon Bon ate hers and she's fine. Lyra will like hers, I bet. And if she eats the muffin, She'll be very happy yet!" With each lyric, Lyra's eyes and mouth opened wider and wider and she leaned in closer to the muffin, eventually taking one little bite. It tasted so good that she instantly forgot about being scared and scarfed down the whole thing. "Atta filly, Lyra," said Bon Bon. Lyra gave a satisfied smile and hoof-bumped Bon Bon, the two went on their merry way, and Lyra was never afraid to eat a muffin again.
  15. 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...
  16. So just a little spoiler alert for those who aren't aware, it seem after seeing this picture, it look like S8 is happening. But not only that, looks to me there will be a school of friendship?? And a female changeling?? how is that possible? There's also a new merchandise as well corresponded to this. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075LNDN4D/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1505305651&sr=1-5588&keywords=my+little+pony&refinements=p_n_availability:1248837011,p_89:My+Little+Pony|Hasbro|My+Little+Pony+Equestria+Girls&linkCode=sl1&tag=alabmlme-20&linkId=decd195ae8921c9c493b6c04824e08ca https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075LDHMFP/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1505306592&sr=1-5606&keywords=my+little+pony&refinements=p_n_availability:1248837011,p_89:My+Little+Pony|Hasbro|My+Little+Pony+Equestria+Girls&linkCode=sl1&tag=alabmlme-20&linkId=57fa55f29d63508fc5f6532d4bbd9adf What do you guys think of this?
  17. So, I finished this orchestral track about two days ago. It's for a national anthem competition on Equestria Amino. I figured I'd share it here so I can get some feedback (note this is a completed track). The main melody was inspired by A True True Friend, mainly the chorus, I figured that a melody similar to that would work great for a National Anthem. Hope you guys enjoy!
  18. Hi everypony, recent debate question confused my mind and I have been thinking "Can a woman and a man be friends?". Dave Matthews answers this question on point: “A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other. Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.” The short answer is yes, you can be just friends, but don't expect smooth sailing. We don't get to choose our family, but we do get to choose our friends. Often, our friends echo us in terms of personality, morals, values, socioeconomics, and goals. Our friends should complement us. No matter the gender, we find our friends attractive. At first, it isn't sexual attraction (well, most of the time). Rather, we become attracted to how they make us feel, how comfortable we are talking to them and how fun they are to go out with on a Saturday night. What we look for in our guy friends is very much the same in what we look for in a significant other: chemistry. Why would we want to hang out with a boring bro who plays video games all day? We want a guy friend who makes us laugh, goes out to dinner with us on a Friday night and watches the Rangers with us. Whether it's his dark brown eyes, height, charming personality or love for the Yankees, we are in some capacity attracted to him. If you deny this, ask yourself, “Why do I hang out with him?” It's inevitable: You both form feelings at one point of the relationship. Time wise, it can come in a variety of combinations. You may fall first; he may fall first; perhaps, you will fall for each other at the same time. Timing is key here. You can't control when you will fall for each other, but the way you handle falling for him will definitely shape your relationship. Do you ever notice how you feel when he brings a new girl into the picture? How about when he posts a picture with his new girlfriend on his arm at the same restaurant he took you for your 23rd birthday? Whether you like it or not, you feel threatened, even if you can honestly say you don't want to have sex with him. If this feeling of threat hasn't happened yet, trust me, it will. Often, without consciously recognizing it, we become attached. He is your best friend, after all, and all of a sudden, you're not a priority in his social life. You're his friend first, no girlfriend, and you don't always come first anymore. Once you see your best guy friend pulling away because there is someone else in the picture who can jeopardize your friendship, the platonic feelings get confused. It is often in situations like these where our true feelings are revealed. Hooking up with guy friends is not unheard of, and some of us are guiltier than others. Obviously, hooking up with a guy friend can and will, without a doubt, complicate your relationship if you want to continue being friends. It can put your relationship in jeopardy because you're no longer discussing sports; you're trying to discuss where you stand. Jealousy, love, and lust don't always last. Therefore, it is possible to be friends with the opposite sex, even after you hook up. However, it does require a lot of work. Honesty is important and being up front about each other's feelings is imperative. If you both enjoy the flirty banter, be upfront that it's just that and nothing more. Let him know you don't want anything serious. If you feel yourself falling for him, but feel a $200 romantic meal in Soho is not acceptable for just friends, just stick with the coffee shop on a Sunday afternoon. If he truly respects you, he will respect your feelings, no matter what. However, falling in love with your best guy friend can possibly “last forever.”You have already set up a solid foundation of trust and love, and you know each other on a fundamentally deep level. Relationships don't always start out as “love at first sight.” Sometimes, it is through deep, meaningful relationships we start to fall in love. As his friend, you see his flaws; you see who he is when he's sad and when he's happy. Unlike guys you've formally dated, falling in love with your best guy friend allows you to see his vulnerable side immediately. He's not putting on a show for you. Instead, he is showing you his true side while letting you open the door. If you do happen to fall in love with each other at the same time, go for it. There isn't a guy who knows you better than he does. Cross the bridge of dealing with feelings and emotions carefully because, at one point or another, you will have to sit down and have “the conversation.” Boys and girls can just hang out; they can sleep in the same bed without having sex, and they can be platonic, but not 100 percent of the time. Be aware that whenever you have a guy friend, there will be questions, doubts and moments of weakness.You can be just his friend, but remember, you will fall for him at some point. It's up to you whether or not you act on the feelings. Apart from it please know being gay is an exception. I, myself know that I am gay and I can easily be friends with girls while I find hard to talk to boys and be friends with them. So do not include those exceptions. Think of a straight woman and a straight man, what do you think? Can they be "just" friends?
  19. Are there any ponies from FiM that you didn't think you'd like immediately, but warmed up to later? I remember when I first got into the show and couldn't believe that Rarity was the representative of generosity. My first impression of her wasn't great, but it didn't take long before she was one of my favorite characters! Are there any ponies you initially didn't like, but ended up loving as the show went on?
  20. Would you say that the mane six have favorites within each other? Like one pony likes another pony more than the others? Example: rainbow dash likes pinkie pie better than applejack, twilight, rarity, and fluttershy? Or is there any evidence of favorites?
  21. It would be really cool to hear some fun or inspirational brony experiences. If friendship is magic and all that it would be great to have that on print. Would love to hear your story
  22. 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).
  23. Hello Bronies and Pegasisters! So, I don't know if any of you have seen the promo of MLP: FIM - Season 7 Episode 4 - Rock Solid Friendship, but shortly in the episode there is actually......
  24. We saw Twilight's mirror in the first episode, and then we saw Twilight give Starlight a mirror of her own (even though I didn't see Sunburst at all in the pictures; isn't he still a close friend a Starlight?). So does Twilight give all her friends mirrors? I'd like to see them one day in the future! What do you think all their mirrors would contain? For Applejack, I'm sure most of the pictures would contain her family. We'd get each Mane Six, a picture of her main three family members, and maybe that one photo taken at the end of Apple Family Reunion! Also a picture of Rara I'm sure! For Fluttershy, I'm sure the mirror mostly contains her animal friends, but include each Mane Six, Spike, Discord, and Tree Hugger! Maaaaaybe Zephyr? For Rarity, I know she'll have each Mane Six, Spike, Sweetie Belle, and Opal, and probably Coco and Sassy as well. But also, I'm sure her pictures also contain the celebrities she befriended in the past like Sapphire Shores! For Rainbow Dash, each Mane Six, Scootaloo, Tank, and each Wonderbolt! Maybe AK Yearling as well! For Spike, probably each Mane Six (Rarity's would have a heart drawn around it), Little Strongheart, Starlight, Thorax, Ember, and maybe a picture of when he played O&O with Big Mac and Discord! For Pinkie, let's not go there! It's more like, how much of the mirror is still seen within all those photos? XD
  25. One of the great things to see in this show is how different characters interact! After six seasons and almost going to season 7, it would be really nice to see characters who barely or never interact to interact! Like Shining Armor and Cadance interacting with the Cakes the first time in S5E19, or Spike, Big Mac, and Discord sharing an episode together in Dungeons and Discords! Or even Starlight's team in To Where and Back Again! Don't any of you get tired of seeing the CMCs interact with their sisterly counter-parts non-stop without a break, or Spike only developing a close bond with just the same two ponies, or even AJ and Rarity being the two Mane Six ponies to share episode CONSTANTLY!? There are so many other friendships that should be explored more in the series, like Discord and Trixie, the Cakes with Twilight, Shining and Big Mac, Spike with pretty much every character that's not Twilight or Rarity! XD I'd like to see him explore a deeper bond with characters like Starlight, Fluttershy, Thorax, Ember, and if possible, Scorpan! I'm not saying these characters that they normally interact with should never interact with them again, but it would be nice to see an ongoing friendship explored between a character and another that hasn't been explored during their debuts.
