  1. So, what do you think the Crystal Empire is to Equestria. Is it a vassal state, an ally, or an independent nation altogether? Share your thoughts and maybe we can find a conscience on this even if the writers haven't decided yet.
  2. Season 8 has thus far been an exciting, if not controversial season for a variety of reasons, including the introduction of the antagonist Chancellor Neighsay. But we also have some other surprises including, Equally important however, is the introduction of the Young 6, a ragtag group of nonpony characters (along with Sandbar the Earth pony), who grow on each other and play a central role in Twilight's School of Friendship and are juxtaposed against Chancellor Neighsay, who doesn't trust them at all. In the past, through the film and episodes, we have heard and seen nonpony characters and their interactions, but they have rarely been the focus of the plot. Only recently since Season 6 have we begun seeing Changelings through Thorax, and dragons, through Ember start playing bigger roles. All this just scratches at the bigger picture however. We know what the Young 6 are (somewhat). But WHO are the Young 6? Well if we go by the hints we have been given, its not hard to see the picture the writers are presenting us: There's 6 friends and as we have seen, 6 is the Magic number in FiM. The Mane 6 and the Pillars of Old Equestria. And now we have the Young 6: At this point I am going off my own headcanon comparing the Young 6 to the past Elements of Harmony With Gallus, his personality strongly resembling Rainbow Dash's and his overall color scheme, I'm inclined to say he's an element of loyalty or courage. Beyond that he may be relative or close friend of Gilda based on what he's told RD. Silverstream is very bubbly, hyperactive and seems to maintain a positive attitude always. To me she's pretty much a hippogriff version of Pinkie and an element of laughter and joy, though as we have seen with Somnambula, this isn't always the case. Being the niece of the queen makes Silverstream's story even more potentially interesting. Ocellus very much seems to be a protege of Thorax. Both are very soft-spoken, conflict averse, and kind people, again like Fluttershy. This may just be something commonly found with the new Changelings though, as we've seen recently. I still say though that Ocellus is a strong candidate as the next element of kindness. Sandbar is the straight man, er pony, the odd guy out in the group. It's hard to say what role he will play, but I'd wager he will play a key role standing up against Chancellor Neighsay in the season finale. I won't say Sandbar is the leader of the Young 6, but based on his trust in his friends and the Mane 6, I'd say he's an element of friendship and trust (ironic since despite friendship being magic, Sandbar is an Earth pony ) Things get a bit hairier once we get to Yona. Her role is hard to define for me personally. She is very outspoken about Yakyakistan though, much like Applejack is about apples and her family, so I may imagine her being an element of honesty. Smolder is where things don't quite fit in. From all the Young 6 characters, I don't know much about her, except she behaves like a "typical dragon" and gets along with Gallus. She might be an element of loyalty or honesty, although a trait of dragons that stands out in the show is their "inherent greed and selfishness." We have of course, seen how Spike, and later Ember, contradict these stereotypes. Smolder will be having some interaction with Spike this season, so it may very well be that Smolder is an element of generosity in disguise, even if she shares little in common with Rarity, save a liking for gems . But again all of this is just my speculative headcanon on the Young 6. What do you folks think the Young 6, either as a group or individually will have as roles in the show, and perhaps influencing the future generation? Do you have any headcanons about the Young 6 yet?
  3. So I am wondering about the origin of Dicord, and his specie (Draconequus). What's your thoughts about this? How do you like to think Discord came into being? Share your thoughts and opinion whether they're canon, your headcanon, or even fanon (by this I mean Discord's origin which is explained by bronies or pegasisters in fanfics or art). Let's unveil the mystry behind our little draconquus.
  4. That's a question that's been bothering me for a while now. As I have plans to make my own persona of one, there is very little to go on what a draconequus actually is. From what we've seen of Discord he is clearly one of, if not THE most powerful being on Equestria. But I get the feeling we can't entirely trust completely in what Discord says, as he does seem the sort to grant himself titles of godhood or reinvent his backstory frequently to suit his whims in a very Joker-esque fashion. Have heard rumors that one of the semi-cannon books mention something about a whole race Discord once belonged to. But I find that somewhat dubious as this world is already taxed just trying to contain just one Discord. My own headcannon is that draconequui are some sort of inorganic, inter-dimensional travelers not unlike the Planeswalkers of Magic the Gathering or the Q continuum that Discord was originally based on. Just that different dimensions have different rules of what counts as existence so a Draconequus has to keep replacing their body as they age eventually becoming a being of pure thought inhabiting a self-made chimera. Look forward to your turns of logic! -WDRSHNS
  5. trixie deleted her snout symbol, how is she able to breath? the nostrils are also gone
  6. It is a common fan portrayal to depict that silly skiing white horse as if he is gay, and he tends to be shipped with either one of his friends: Party Favor, or Braeburn (less often). So, I am curious about what is it about Double Diamond that made fans depict him as a gay pony: is it that he looks as cute as Braeburn, or his light voice? I think it is funny to watch.
  7. Does anybody have any theories about Scootaloo and her parents? My theory is that Fluttershy had her and gave her up for adoption, which is why she can't fly. Rainbow Dash was the only other pony who knew about it, so she secretly takes care of her now as her big sister figure. What do you guys think?
  8. In the IDW comics, Pinkie Pie has unveiled that she carries live ammunition for her party cannon. She has attempted to do that even NOT AS A VILLAIN, against Iron Will. Thankfully Rarity stopped her, otherwise he'd be dead! I decided to do a few hours of speculation as to consider how powerful her cannon 290mm deliverer of fun actually is! Conclusion: she could destroy any modern tank, as her cannon is about the strength of one found on a WW2 era battleship
  9. It can be confirmed with it being mentioned in the show, one of the writers confirms it, observed in the show, or any way that shows that it is now canon.
  10. If she is, a switch from mania to depression at the end of TCRM would be a good explanation for why she decided to stop being evil in the course of a conversation, as well as her personality changes post-reformation.
  11. In the original MLP TV series, the farmgirl Megan (who was 12 years old) and her siblings, Danny and Molly, went on adventures saving Ponyland from villains. In consequent official MLP works, they were never seen again, except in one Equestria Girls comic where their names are mentioned in a leaflet (under Sunset Shimmer) as being associated with a room. In the context of daily life for people growing up through the 90's and into 2017, I wonder, how do you think Megan and her siblings would have lived to the present day (or even into the future), as they grew up after their adventures in Ponyland? The stories of their older lives, and those of their possible descendants, would be fascinating. Furthermore, how do you think they (or their future families) might have reacted to FiM and Equestria Girls, and its quirky fanbase?

    SS Headcanons

    [Warning: Bad English!!!] For months now, I wanted to write a fanfacion about Sunset Shimmer's past. But since I will probably never acutally write it because of...reasons, I decided to write at least my headcanons down, which would have been part of the story. Enjoy! :I Since Sunset mentioned that she has a family, but not a close realtion to them in the Equestria Girls Holiday Speacial (IDW comic), I think that her behavior portrayed in the first movie and „The Fall of Sunset Shimmer“ was a result of her parents not carring about her and/or pushing her down as a filly. When Sunset came to the human world she lived on the streets before Principal Celestia took her in and later helped her to get a job and an own apartment. Principal Celestia took Sunset in, because she reminded her of Luna, who was a „rebel“ when she was a teenager. (Since Nigmare Moon probably never happend in the human world, I think that is the closest thing to her we can get.) It was not Flash Sentry who taught Sunset how to play guitar, but Vice principal Luna during the time Sunset was living with Principal Celestia. The jacket Sunset was wearing in the first movie, was also the jacket Vice principal Luna has worn as a teenager. After Sunset moved in her apartment, the principals were still inviting her to dinner, but at time passed by the visits became less and less. Sunset used to play guitar when she needed to calm down or felt homesick. Flash became interested in Sunset because he heard her playing. Since Sunset was only using Flash due to popularity, she was only close to him during school time. In her free time and especially at the end of their relationship, she pretended often to be busy, so that she did not need to spent more time with him than necessary. (They were a couple for 2 to 3 months.) Because Sunset was never pure evil, she still felt at least a little bit bad for using Flash and during the realtionship with him she felt more uncomfortable than anything. Sunset knew where Twilight's room were and how her crown looked like, because she went through the portal already a few hours before during the same day. Sunset's plan of stealing Twilight's crown was never well thought through, but rather a rash reaction of her realizing that Princess Celestia had replaced her. After she stole the crown she had no idea what she was going to do with it. The plan of taking over Equestira was a result of her being corrupted by the crown and it was also not well thought through. Sunset had such a extrem personality change because she lost every she had built and because realized that became similar to her parents, something that she never wanted to become. Since it is confirmed that 1 moon = 1 month and that the portal opens every 30 moons (what would be 2,5 years), I think that Sunset lives in the human world for at least 5 to 7,5 years. The principals know that Sunset is a little bit older than the rest of the students. I also posted the whole thing on tumblr.
  13. Like Yvaine, Coriakin, and Ramandu (from Stardust and Narnia) being people who are actually stars (like the ones in the night sky), sometimes I consider some ponies to be "stars in pony bodies", such as Sunset, STARlight, Twilight, and Trixie (for their names or apperances), and Double Diamond (for him being a very cute WHITE pony -- he might be bright enough to burn stuff!). May I know, which ponies do you consider to be more like "stars" than ponies, as in having some form of relation with the stars of the night sky, or actually being "fallen stars from the sky"? That is, other than Celestia and her student Twilight, who are overrated choices?
  14. Since both age and transformation spells exist, could Starswirl be in retirement somewhere, perhaps in some other form? Personally, I doubt it, but is it possible?
  15. After all, their powers create small-d discord. Do you think there's a connection?
  16. Most episodes portray them as something like a sports team, but occasionally (Secret of My Excess, Testing,Testing, 123), they're portrayed as more like a military unit. So which are they? I think they're primarily a sports team now, but they have a paramilitary contract with Canterlot that originated from when they were the EUP guard.
  17. So, does anyone have any interesting theories relating specifically to the Mane Six they're dying to share? Just general thoughts, across the seasons and generations alike. I figure Twi, Rarity and Rainbow are all children of minor noble houses, myself. They and the rest of the girls shot up through the ranks, though, due to their service to the crown. Now, they all technically hold large swaths of previously-unclaimed land Celestia had taken from noble houses that proved too incompetent to keep it. I might write a story on this idea later... Got a lot more to work through first, though. Anyways, how do you think their backgrounds play out? Everyone likes to explore Applejack's history (myself included) but we tend to neglect the other five as a fandom, from what I've seen. It'll be interesting to see what people have come up with.
  18. I just re-watched the S1 E1&E2, and I noticed something odd. In the prophecy about the return of Nightmare Moon, it is said that "the stars will aid in her escape." In the symbolism of the three main Princesses, Twilight is "the stars" (her cutie mark). Does she in some sense make it possible for Luna to escape the Moon? Or could the prophecy be more directly related to the end of the episode rather than the beginning? After Nightmare Moon gets blasted by the EoH DNA Rainbow, we next see Luna huddled amidst the fragments of her Nightmare Moon self. Instead of sending her to the Moon as Celestia's use of the Elements did, the M6's use under Twilight's aegis "breaks her out." Could there also be an element of retroactive causation, in which the zap from the EoH is also the force that breaks Luna out of the Moon?
  19. Is there anything in canon/B-canon (comics, Journal of the Two Sisters, etc.) that contradicts the idea? It seems odd that neither Celestia or Luna have ever been married, that we can see, and if any stallion were worthy of marrying an alicorn, it would be the greatest wizard in Equestrian history. Maybe he was the reason Celestia started the School for Gifted Unicorns in the first place.
  20. Two questions I have about the new changeling forms: 1) What do you call the new forms? Personally I like ColorChangelings or neo-changelings as new names, but I was wondering if anyone had a name for them. 2) Are the forms intended for a new toyline, Rainbow Power-style? They seem too garishly colored to be purely a stylistic choice.
  21. It occurred to me that each of the season premiere/finale villains (not counting "Princess Twilight Sparkle or "The Crystalling", which don't have active villains in the same way) can be defined more or less as an opponent to one of the Elements of Harmony: Nightmare Moon: Selfishness, opposing Generosity Discord: Divisiveness, opposing Loyalty Chrysalis: Deception, opposing Honesty Sombra: Cruelty, opposing Kindness Tirek: Powerlessness, opposing Magic Starlight Glimmer: Insincerity, opposing Laughter. Obviously, some of these are stretches (e.g. what are the opposites of magic and laughter?), but is there any validity to this view of the world? Could having to deal with each of the antagonists be connected to a different aspect of their friendship?
  22. Here's my headcanon about that book's history. What's yours? I believe the book was created by Discord as one of his contingency plans should he be dethroned. We already saw one of his plans in "Princess Twilight Sparkle", and he probably had more than one. He seems to like complex plans. We also saw him increase in power when the CMC got into a chaotic fight in front of him. Yes, that was probably also because the EOH had been transferred to the Mane 6, but it's possible sufficient chaos surrounding him would have freed him anyway. Inspirarity's rampage was certainly chaotic in nature. I also believe Sombra was a victim of the book and an example of what the book makes its user if left unchecked. Both Sombra and Inspirarity were obsessed with shiny things (gold and jewels for Inspirarity, crystals for Sombra) and only appeared to care about themselves and their own power. Both Sombra's magic and the book's magic were referred to as dark (and note that Discord's chaos magic is literally dark, if Tirek's draining was any indication). Sombra seemed to have the power to create anything he wanted (the weird crystals, the giant staircases, the worst-nightmare door), and that last one makes me think he learned another spell (maybe more than one) from the book.
  23. Flim and Flam seem to be identical, other than their names, Flam's moustache, and perhaps their voices. For the sake of anyone writing fanfics about or involving them, I would like to see your ideas on how you could make each brother more distinct. What hobbies, behaviours, and interests do you imagine each of the brothers to have? And which pony would be the leader, and which one will be the assistant? Where do you think they would live, if they do (or do not) have the Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000? Please add in your own ideas!
  24. The results for the Dazzlings in "Rainbow Rocks" has already been shown, which they still live without their pendants, although their singing has became more poor as a result. But seeing that every Siren appears to have a gem on their torso, I wonder what would happen to a Siren (as a Siren, and not as a human like the Dazzlings are) if someone cuts it off, and/or destroyed it, would it harm or kill the Siren? Or would the removal or destruction of the gem on their chest affect them the say way it affected the human Siren Dazzlings? (Image by StacySolitude)
  25. Most fans would see Principal Cinch as "the tyrannical principal of Crystal Prep who deserves a fate as ugly as her face": uncaring, selfish, arrogant, and willing to do even nasty tactics and bullying just to win a competition. Sometimes, it would be a good thing to add a detail or two to Cinch's story. What do you think she likes to do at her spare time? How did she become so nasty in the first place? What do you think happened to her after Friendship Games? It should be a good time to share any head-canons about the jolly Principal Abacus Cinch that you can think of, right here, for her reputation!
