  1. Do you love Lyra? Like her? Know nothing about her? Whatever the case, this is the place to talk about the cutest, mintiest, and best background pony in all of Equestria! Until this month I barely noticed Lyra on the show. But then I looked at some pics, and it was like seeing her for the first time. Then I looked up some pictures, read 'Anthropology,' listened to music about her. Then I voted for her in the Most Attractive Pony poll and now I'm a fan for life. xD (You can vote Lyra too! Help her pull off the biggest upset in forum history! ) I don't just like Lyra, I LOVE her. I can't get that unicorn out of my head. I didn't understand background pony nuts or WAIFU fans before, but oh god, I think I've become one. Or both. So here's a topic about her. Tell me what you think about her, what kind of pony you think she is, post cute pictures of her...anything and everything Lyra!
  2. Towards the movies end, before "Rainbow", this mare can be seen walking alone on the Canterlot sidewalks, almost unnoticed, as the damage by the Storm King is reversed by Twilight and Tempest. She appears rather sad, or even old(?) at fist, before lifting her head up when the magic takes effect, having a "Lyra Heartstrings" like appearance. Who is this mare? Let me know in the comments.
  3. View the final round, the Magic Bowl, here! And review last week's Divisional results here. Kindness Flutters On “Fillies and gentlecolts,” Mayor Mare announced grandly, “Allow me to introduce the winner of the PFC Championship game and one of two ponies going on to the very first Magic Bowl…the only cellist in Ponyville!” “Um…excuse me…” “Truly this is a most auspicious day for our elegant gray earth pony, one of Equestria’s greatest musicians…” The clueless politician continued. “Um—actually…” “…Whose melodious journey through the Most Attractive Pony Tournament is clearly just beginning. Without further ado, here is—” “EXCUSE ME!” a yellow Pegasus burst out. Mayor Mare jumped in surprise, as did the entire crowd. “Um, oh, I’m very sorry. But…you made a mistake. It’s just that, if you look at the votes, I think, um…actually, I won…if that’s okay.” The mayor took another look at the scoreboard. “…Why, of course you did, dear! As I was saying, here is the conference winner, FLUTTERSHY!” The mayor’s new spectacles will be arriving shortly. Anypony who had voted within the first two days and not checked the poll since would be equally surprised. Coming off convincing upsets over Pinkie Pie in the wildcard and Spitfire in the divisional, Octavia jumped out to a huge double-digit lead early in the game. Fans applauded with delight as her music rose through the arena and into the heavens. As it turned out, the crescendo came too early. Over the next few days, Fluttershy rose to great heights of her own. For a while she was nearly an afterthought in her own game, but “the bunny whisperer” refused to give up. She tied Octavia in the second half, and finally surpassed her to score another win. Fluttershy’s strong playoff standing was clearly no coincidence, as she will meet Lyra Heartstrings this week for the Celestial Trophy. “Oh, um…you don’t have to interview me,” the relentlessly cute Element said bashfully. “Besides, I have to rush home! Angel gets so upset if his tail isn’t fluffed properly.” The elegant cellist went diminuendo, but not al niente. Octavia was disappointed, but graceful in defeat. “Worry not, everypony,” she said after the game. “This was only my first approach at greatness. I have many more performances yet to come before my final symphony.” She left the field with a cadre of other musical ponies, a mint green unicorn among them. FLUTTERSHY, 123-100 Playing With the Angels Background ponies simply don’t make it this far. The kind of shock and excitement that rocked Ponyville this week only comes with a Sonic Rainboom, or a new apple-bucking record—or a thrilling magic duel. This time, it came from the Cinderella story of Lyra Heartstrings. ‘My name is Lyra Heartstrings, and you will remember me...’ An inspiring tale of upset victories in Cloudsdale and Sweet Apple Acres was expected to end at Ponyville Library in the EFC Championship. And it nearly did as Lyra’s dominating division rival took an early lead. For a while it took everything she had just to stay one step behind. As the days wore on, the natural advantage of Twilight Sparkle seemed impossible to overcome. But as ponies and bronies alike can testify, nothing is impossible in this tournament. Twilight swept the anthropologist (and her entire division) in the regular season. But this was a new game and a new Lyra, and she proved it by gaining a 3-vote lead as the second half began. The 'mane' character struck back, and at one point led the match by 6. Knowing better than anypony that the “clock was ticking,” she tried to hold her lead—but the pony no one was betting on made one last charge and held on for another improbable win. Twilight wasn’t the only one unprepared for the outcome. “Oh, well!” the purple prodigy exclaimed, her left eye twitching only slightly. “I sure didn’t plan for this…but I guess that’s just how it goes! I just wasn’t able to stand between Lyra and all her good friends! Spike! Where did I go wrong?! Was it my mark? My eyes? My tail?” She looked at it and gasped in horror. “Oh Celestia, I think a strand was out of place!!” The baby dragon shook his head and sighed. “Come on, Twilight. Let’s go to the spa. It’ll make you feel better! And I can see Rarity…” He led Twilight gently away from the library. Lyra rises above all expectations only to climb the highest mountain—a daunting task, especially without hands. Reporters found her camped out at the edge of Fluttershy’s field the night before the first Magic Bowl, awaiting her final test. “One more game and then I’m off. The humans are calling me—I know they are. Research just isn’t enough anymore. I have to see them! Twilight was really helpful even though she didn’t win. I think she’s found a way for me to visit the human world at last!” Lyra paused. “It’s going to be a tough one, isn’t it? But I’m not afraid. I knew it all along—if I believed in them, one day, they would believe in me.” The EFC Champion took out her lyre, looked up at the stars, and began to play. LYRA, 118-105
  4. Lyra 'Bowls' Over MLP Forums It was just another Saturday in the big city. A river of vehicles crawled and honked their way through the streets. Teenagers with allergies in the dozens and noses in their smart phones shuffled down the sidewalk. A 30-ish man looking down on his luck made a beeline for the nearest bench where he sat every day. To its inhabitants, this tired tableau of human civilization was nothing special. But it was the most amazing thing that Lyra Heartstrings had ever seen. From where Lyra sits, all of us are winners. “Hey,” the man on the bench nodded slowly as a very cute and very strange creature sat down beside him. “You got a light?” “Why sure, Mr. Human!” the unicorn replied. Her horn flared up and glowed incandescently. “Holy ****,” said the man. The rest of Lyra's memorable debut in the human world and how she became an anthropology professor and/or escaped from scientists and/or was elected President is too long to relate here. What matters is that to reach our world, Lyra had to go through Fluttershy in the inaugural Magic Bowl--and that she did. For once, it wasn't close. The mint-colored mare who had galloped furiously from one tough race to the next scored a comfortable victory. Fluttershy's supporters had seen their pony in a tough situation before, as dozens of voters gave her opponent a huge early lead in the PFC Championship. The same thing happened in the Magic Bowl--except here, the deficit was too large for Shy to make up. At one point she had cut Lyra's lead of over 40 votes to just 23, but it was as close as the game would get. At long last, the oft-ignored background pony has her moment of glory. Lyra rode a dizzying wave of fan support through most of the final round, bidding a fond farewell to the appreciative crowd in Ponyville. "I'll be back, everypony, I promise! I just have to see all these awesome creatures who got me here. And now I finally will! Hee hee...I love them!" She stepped into a mysterious machine branded with Twilight's cutie mark, and was gone--but now, never to be forgotten. "Oh, um, it's all right that I didn't win," Fluttershy said bashfully to reporters. "Just being the second most attractive pony in Equestria is very nice. And the animals made me train so hard just to get here, I was kind of exhausted. Angel is such a tough coach. But maybe next time it will be different..." the shy pegasus trailed off slightly. The sun went briefly behind a cloud, and the air grew heavy and oppressive. "Maybe next time...everypony...and every going to love me." Mommy... But this dark moment was over as soon as it began. "So, anypony want to help me feed the animals?" Fluttershy chirped. Four weeks ago, you couldn’t have found one brony willing to bet that the first-ever Most Attractive Pony tournament would end with the announcement “Lyra Heartstrings, Magic Bowl Champion.” A mediocre contender stuck in the same division with the main character of the show, Lyra’s playoff prospects were doubtful, and her chances of beating a Mane 6 head-to-head improbable. But the love of bronies can accomplish just about anything, and thanks to them the unicorn blazed a trail through the most hostile territory, overcoming four Mane 6 ponies to reach the championship. The feat is unprecedented and unlikely to be repeated by any background pony in the future. Lyra's journey has culminated in her greatest moment on MLP Forums, and proven that beauty is not in popularity, but the eye of the beholder.

  5. Okay, the fandom does weird stuff. I am a pegasister, but a sane one (no offence). Here is what I want to be explained. Why do some people call flanks "plots"? I don't clop but I did find one nasty clop fic by mistake which referred to Zecora's flank as her "plot", and later I heard someone call Fluttershy's flank her "plot". I have looked the word "plot" up in the dictionary and have not found any reference to it being used as a word for butt or flank, so is it an MLP thing? What's the origin? Why do people think Derpy is Dinky's mother because they went to the Sisterhooves Social? Wouldn't it make more sense for Derpy to be Dinky's friend, cousin or sister? Why do people take it for granted that Lyra likes humans when there was no evidence of it in the show? Why do people ship Fluttershy with Discord?
  6. I thought it was time that I did a pic of these two in footed pajamas
  7. I wanted to share this one cuz I am a bit proud of how it turned out :3 I actually managed to get the drawing I had in my head down on paper 100%! That doesn't happen that often.
  8. Some new art to finish off your labor day weekend. I hope you all enjoy! <3 Direct link:
  9. This is one of my favorite photoshop projects I've ever done. It features Lyra sitting on a bench with pinkie around the corner. I also put two fake advertisements in the frames (The "Chicken The Movie" poster is mine. There are also a few easter eggs hidden around the photo, can you spot them all? Anyways, here's the before and after: BEFORE: AFTER:
  10. Say, each of the Mane 6, Derpy Hooves, Sunset Shimmer, Trixie, Starlight Glimmer, or Lyra Heartstrings, were given some abilities to enter into dreams and control them to their own liking, either to entertain or torment the dreamer for their own purposes. If they could do so, what would a dream, or a nightmare, controlled by each of these eleven ponies be like, and what would it involve? Also, would you like to share some ways to survive their sorts of dreams or nightmares? EDIT: Including Lyra for the fun of it.
  11. Look's like Lyra is having a great day, and a great smile too!
  12. The Magic Bowl has ended! Your third champion is Twilight Sparkle, who defeated Rarity 63-58. Congratulations to Equestria's newest princess! A SHORT HISTORY OF THE MAPT, by Tails 2013 - WILD CARD - DIVISIONAL - CONFERENCE - MAGIC BOWL I 2015 - WILD CARD - DIVISIONAL - CONFERENCE & MAGIC BOWL II __________________________________ REGULAR SEASON, FINAL SCORES ORIGINAL POST & CONTEST RULES, 1/10 It's that time again, friends...time for the third edition of one of the most exciting forum contests we've EVER had, the Most Attractive Pony Tournament! The first MAPT was a smashing success where background pony Lyra Heartstrings beat out four Mane Six to win it all. In the second one, nearly 300 members voted in the final round to make Rarity the champion. I participated enthusiastically in both tourneys, so when the original host Rudy Schmurda (AKA Toshio Ozaki, AKA Alfonzo Dennard) offered me the opportunity to host a new one, I jumped at it. The makeup of the tournament is evolving with the show. The first one in 2013 featured a handful of main characters and a lot of background ponies. But with the show introducing so many new characters and MERCY bringing in the princesses in 2015, deciding which mares to include here was a real challenge--and it means we'll have to make some tough choices very early in the competition. Or rather, you will. As the host, I will not be casting any votes, nor advocating any mare over another. That's right: for once, Tails is out of the running! Now, on to the rules! Like the first two MAPTs, this tournament is modeled after the NFL playoffs: 32 female ponies are split into two conferences with four divisions each. The 12 ponies with the most votes (8 division winners and 4 wild cards) will advance to the playoffs and that head-to-head competition these tourneys are so well known for. Remember: the votes are everything. Bronies like us can generate more votes for our favorite ponies by spreading the word and posting pictures to sway undecided voters. It's part forum debate, part political campaign, and all fun! Remember: keep it friendly. This tournament is about healthy competition and respect for all ponies and their fans, and as always on this site, let's keep all posts and pictures SFW. Now to introduce the 32 ponies who made the cut this year! Pictures are included so you can view them all side by side. EQUESTRIAN FRIENDSHIP CONFERENCE PONY FRIENDSHIP CONFERENCE There you have it. Using the polls above, vote for the ponies you think are the prettiest, cutest, sexiest, however you care to look at it--and remember to cast a vote in every division. I'll update the standings every few days to show who our division leaders are as the round goes on. Let's make this another awesome contest!
  13. Yay!!! I'm learning!!! so, I made this lip sync test and now I will never unhear it as vaccinate.
  14. I will color this eventually, but this being inktober and all, I wanted to just go ahead and post this now I hope you like it!
  15. It's been a while since I posted anything here. And I apologize for that. But here's another one of my drawings! This took me a couple of hours to finish I think. I really like drawing cute ponies What do you think?
  16. Ole! Bonjour! Hello! Well, this seems to be popular, and I couldn't defy tradition now could I? You can ask Moustache Lyra or me, Nectar Bluegrass, anything you please here! Post away!
  17. “Let go of me you bastards! I said let go!” a pale green mare screeched as a quartet of burly orderlies frog marched her into the hallway. She squirmed and bucked wildly, spit flying from her lips as she tried to break free. Two of the stallions were doing their best to tighten the straps on her straightjacket, the straps pulling the mare’s forelegs tight across her stomach. She wasn’t making it easy for them – the black eyes and hoof-shaped bruises attesting to her stubborn resistance. “I know you’re in on it, all of you! Why won’t you just accept the truth? Stop believing the lies, you dumb, blind fools! Let! Me! Go!” The group of ponies disappeared around a corner, the echoes of their struggle clearly audible long afterwards. Confusion reigned in their wake. The three mares stared back at each other uneasily. Twilight added another question to her list, once she managed to close her jaw. What was Lyra doing in a straightjacket?

  20. I am trying to write a fanfiction about Lyra and her mother. However there is one problem. I have no idea how her mother should look or what her name should be or what her cuie mark should be. She is a explorer trapped in the human world, if it helps.
  21. So these are some terrible attempts at drawing... I had better you go. Do you have any advice on how to improve?
  22. Twilight Returns With a Vengeance "I know that things have changed. I have new responsibilities. I have more challenges to deal with." Twilight Sparkle stated in her first post-game interview. "But I really wanted to win this game." "Yep," an exhausted-looking Spike groaned beside her. "She really did." Twilight demonstrated a rule of physics: what goes down, may also come up again. Twilight's journey through the Most Attractive Pony Tournament was much harder than last season's. Tough competition in the EFC sent her reeling into an unfamiliar wildcard spot. Yet the most powerful unicorn in Ponyville was as determined as ever to succeed--and that she did. In a rematch with defending Magic Bowl I champion Lyra Heartstrings, she cast off a burden that had weighed on her for two whole years. Twilight jumped out to a strong early lead, and at first the game showed every sign of being a blowout. But with Lyra, there is always a twist in the plot. The minty musician galloped back into contention in the last few days of the contest, slashing a lead of dozens of votes to only 16. Another miracle seemed possible for Equestria's ultimate underpony, but the clock ran out, and Equestria's newest alicorn princess emerged with another jewel in her crown. Last year's champion was gracious in defeat. "Are you kidding?" Lyra said gleefully when asked if she was disappointed about the loss. "I'm kinda relieved! It takes off all the pressure of being 'undefeated.' I mean, I didn't want to go 'one-and-done'...that's what it's called in the human world, right? But I really am happy for Twi! I mean, um, Her Majesty." The result sends the princess into a duel with Rainbow Dash. This time, Twilight won't need her hot air balloon for the trip to Cloudsdale. TWILIGHT, 91-75 The More Things Change... It may be a new year, a new beginning, and a new tournament. But in Octavia and Pinkie Pie's wildcard rematch, the only thing that changed was the cellist's margin of victory. Pinkie is left to puzzle over another mysterious development. Along with Lyra Heartstrings, Octavia remains one of the most popular background ponies in the tournament, and here she was also the most successful. Her elegant beauty was one thing Pinkie couldn't pull out of her hammerspace, and this time it garnered even more votes than before. The party pony stayed competitive, though it was never really close. Octavia was quite composed (no pun intended) after the game, polishing her cello in the locker room. "I am grateful to Miss Pie for once again proving herself a worthy opponent. I was only a few sour notes away from going to the Magic Bowl in 2013; this year, I intend to score a masterpiece." Octavia improved on her last match with Pinkie, which she won 86-62. "Of course I'm not upset, you silly fillies! A BUNCH of people like Octavia. Just like a bunch of people like pie more than cake. I'm a super good sport--see?!" The prankster of Ponyville suddenly produced hoofsful of sticks, paddles, and balls from every sport imaginable, then just as suddenly flung them aside. "I think I'll have Octy over for a REALLY SPECIAL batch of cupcakes." She furrowed her brow at the uncomfortable silence of the reporters. "...What??" OCTAVIA, 100-66 All You Need is Love? Cadence's good vibes allowed her to escape with a win. Twilight was not the only alicorn who made good. Princesses Celestia, Luna, and Cadence all joined the tournament in 2015, and all three of them qualified for the playoffs. Twilight's former babysitter faced a stiff challenge in The Great and Powerful Trixie, the lovely wandering magician who was determined to improve on her first-round exit in the last tournament. Alas, determination does not equal victory. In the closest game of the week, the two ponies dueled on a razor's edge until Cadence pulled ahead and held on for an 8-vote squeaker. She left Hoofington Theater and a stunned Trixie to a herd of reporters. "I'm very happy that the bronies were able to feel and celebrate my love for them," said the princess. "My husband Shining Armor was not able to attend, but I know he is very happy for me back in the Crystal Empire." The wheels came off Trixie's wagon once again. Trixie also had something to say, but her post-game remarks lacked the usual brashness, even hubris, that fans have come to expect. "Trixie does not understand," she said quietly, looking up at the score that was so close, yet so far. "The Great and Powerful Trixie tried as hard as she could. Doesn't her?" CADENCE, 87-79 The Sun Also Sets While all of the wildcard matchups were guaranteed entertainment, this one may well have been the most intriguing of all: the ruler of all Equestria vs. a temperamental but very cute young pony from a mysterious alternate universe. Neither pony would comment on their apparently dark history together, but the intensity of their clash said it all. Rumored to have an excellent singing voice, Sunset did very little performing in her first match. She succeeded simply by being herself, though not all bronies might agree on who her true self is. The red and yellow pony jumped out to a remarkable lead and rode it to the end of the game, defeating Princess Celestia herself. Sunset's future is so bright, she would have to wear shades...if she hadn't defeated a sun goddess, that is. "Oh, it was really no big deal," Sunset said nonchalantly. "I'm lying, of course. It was a huge deal to get my revenge on Celestia at last!! But not as huge as when I reach the Magic Bowl and face her new teacher's pet, that goody four-hooves Twilight Sparkle. That's the game I'm looking forward to..." Her Majesty's blank expression says it all. "I am happy to return to my usual duties as Princess of the Sun," Celestia stated before leaving Canterlot High School. "I wish my opponent all the best in the future." But no matter how graceful her exit, it is unlikely that Her Highness expected to be done so early. As many voters have learned, anything can happen in the Most Attractive Pony Tournament. Sunset advances to face Rarity in a stacked Divisional round. SUNSET, 97-69 See a recap of the Divisional Round here! Vote in the Tournament here! ...And revisit the 2013 Tournament here.
