  1. Greetings, Ponies of the MLP Forums! This is a topic in which, you are allowed to ask questions to me and any of my five amazing friends. Sup? Hello, Darlings. Howdy! Hiya! Um...Hello? "The Great and Powerful" Trixie has decided to grace this thread with her presence as well. Before we begin, I would like to thank our friends @Totally Lyra & Lyra Heartstrings for giving us this idea. Rules: Please keep your questions clean/No cussing. No shipping questions. No Pre-Release Episode Spoilers. Questions should only be directed at the ponies in the thread title. No repetitive questions please. No one word responses to my answers please.
  2. https://www.fimfiction.net/story/218728/the-needs-of-the-many (C) 2014 I've always wanted to visit Equestria (what Brony hasn't), but I soon discover that things very rarely happen the way you intend for them to when I suddenly wind up there myself. The ponies all live in a constant state of fear as a dark gloom lingers over the land, many of them suffering from life-threatening afflictions. Not only that, but I find myself with strange new abilities. What has happened here? What's happening to me? I will soon discover that I play a major part in the survival of the pony race, but am I up for the challenge that faces me? Part I in the "Guardian Of Equestria" saga. Cover Art by ThePleonasticPotato http://thepleonasticpotato.deviantart.com/art/Ponyville-at-Night-360066446 Chapter I: The Adventure Begins My life has not been an easy one by any means. I’ve had to overcome many challenges that most people normally face and even a few that’re unique only to me. My Little Pony has served as an escape from life’s demands while at the same time bringing hope to me, giving me the means to face the uncertain future with a positive outlook. I’m relatively new to this whole fandom of Bronies and Pegasisters, but I’ve found much to enjoy within the show itself. The art style, the cheery songs, the well-developed characters, the clever and often funny writing, the engaging, relatable stories and the positive morals they teach. All of these and more have captured my attention ever since I first saw the 2-Part pilot back in February of 2014 on Netflix. It is during these viewings that I have often longed to be part of that world: The world of Equestria with its beautiful scenery, mythical creatures, and welcoming inhabitants. What I never realized is that this dream would become a reality, only nothing at all like I originally imagined. * * * * * * * * My average day typically follows the same routine. I work at a local amusement park during the summer anywhere from 5-6 days out of the week. On my days off, I’ll either lounge around at home, call up distant relatives for a chat, or even hang out with the few friends that have time to hang out with me. This includes my girlfriend of two years, who was actually the one to get me into My Little Pony. We discuss the show a lot in our free time, check out fan videos, listen to Brony artists, the whole nine yards. While I do like all of the Mane Six characters, mostly because I see different parts of me in each one of them, my personal favorite of them has to be Fluttershy. I’ve just always loved her soft-spoken caring nature that people are quick to point out that I share with her. Personality-wise though, my girlfriend says that I take more after Rainbow Dash; the whole Element of Loyalty thing playing very strongly into that. And she’s not the only one to say this. My mom has mentioned on numerous occasions how I have a very extreme sense of loyalty in regards to who and even what I associate myself with. Along with the Loyalty aspect, there are the occasions where I share the often brash nature Rainbow has. Me and my girlfriend had planned to take the weekend off from work and go up to Old Orchard Beach in Maine: our favorite vacation spot. We’ve been to plenty of other beaches before, but there’s something about Old Orchard Beach that always has us coming back again and again. I had just finished a long day at work and was making the final preparations before our trip tomorrow. Everything was packed up, my phone was charging overnight, and I had just gotten off a Skype call with my girl to make sure she was all set for us to leave tomorrow morning. With everything all set, I went to bed, looking forward to the coming trip the next day. What I would not expect is that I would be taking an entirely different trip that very night. * * * * * * * * Now before I had gone to bed, I knew that there was supposed to be a lightning storm that night, but this didn’t typically bother me as I’ve slept through many storms before. However, this storm was nothing like I had experienced at any time in my life. The loud booms of thunder were enough to make me toss and turn in my sleep, all the while just wanting them to stop. Suddenly, the loudest thunderclap I had ever heard startled me awake in a cold sweat. Nervously looking around, I discovered that something was wrong. My room was much too dark, as if there were no windows to let in light. Fumbling around in the dark, I reached for my clothes, my glasses, and my cell phone. After putting on my glasses and clothes, I used the flashlight on my phone to find my way to the door. Opening my bedroom door, I expected to step out into the upstairs hallway of my house. What I saw before me was something entirely different. Before me lay a small town with colorful buildings, cobblestone roads, and, off in the distance outside of town, a shining, crystalline castle, unique and impressive in design. As I was beholding this sight, something about it seemed strangely familiar to me, but what? After looking around I noticed a few places automatically. Town Hall. Sugarcube Corner. It all suddenly hit me: I was now in Ponyville and the castle I saw before me was the Friendship Castle from the Season 4 finale I just saw back in May. Looking around, though, something wasn’t right. The whole place was shrouded in a greyish-blue gloom, almost like something you’d see out of a Tim Burton movie like Sleepy Hollow or Sweeney Todd. It was also far too quiet. Where was everypony? Taking a few steps forward, I heard a creaking noise behind me. Turning, I saw the now camouflaged door I came through closing. Running towards it, I reached out my hand to catch it, but it closed before I could reach it, disappearing from my sight. It was at that moment when I made another discovery. Looking at my hand, I discovered that it wasn’t my normal hand. It was still a human hand, but the color of it was more pastel and the appearance of it was more like a drawing. I held both hands out in front of me and wiggled my fingers. Looking down at the rest of me, I discovered that everything about me was pastel and had the appearance of being drawn in the ever familiar flash animation style used in My Little Pony. “I’m a cartoon,” I thought out loud. Several other thoughts ran through my head in that moment. What is going on here? What the hell am I even doing here? I decided to head straight for the castle in the hopes of finding some answers. Maybe Princess Twilight would know what had happened. All I could do was go there and hope for the best. * * * * * * * * On my way to the castle, I discovered upon further inspection that some of the surrounding buildings had taken damage. Windows were shattered, doors were left hanging from hinges, and even some buildings had a charred smell from where a fire had been. What had happened here? I also heard the sounds of ponies closing their shutters as I walked through the empty streets; the only sign of life in this desolate location. The castle was a good walk away, but I finally reached it after a few minutes. Entering through the gleaming golden doors, I walked down a rather lengthy hallway. The interior was as quiet and ominous as a mausoleum. You could literally hear a pin drop. Suddenly, I heard a noise off to my right. Startled, I looked towards a nearby crystal pillar where I saw a small flash of light rose colored hair. I immediately relaxed when I realized who it was. “Wait,” I finally spoke. “I’m a friend.” There was a brief moment of silence and stillness before a face nervously poked out from behind the pillar. Sure enough, I found myself looking into the soft blue eyes of Fluttershy. In the yellow Pegasus’ eyes, I saw fear and uncertainty. This made sense to me; she hardly had any idea who I was. For all she knew, I was probably just some hairless ape with weird clothes. In order to try to gain her trust, I crouched down to her level to show her that I wasn’t a threat. “It’s O.K.,” I whispered, softly. “You can come on out. I’m not gonna hurt you.” After a few seconds of standing there, Fluttershy slowly but surely came out from behind the pillar towards me. “That’s it, Fluttershy. Nice and easy.” At the mention of her name, she froze in her tracks. Finally she spoke. “Wait. How do you know my name?” she asked, unsurely. “Uh… lucky guess? My name is David. Are you here alone?” “Oh no”-Fluttershy shook her head, softly-“Some of my pony friends are here also.” “Is Princess Twilight here? It’s really important that I-” My sentence died right there for at the mention of the princess, tears formed in Fluttershy’s eyes. “What is it?” I asked, concerned. “Was it somethin’ I said?” “Something… terrible… happened to her,” Fluttershy managed to utter through sobs. As of the past few months, I had learned one very important truth about life from the show: Few things are more heartbreaking than Fluttershy tears. It was in that moment that I leaned in to hug her, offering what little comfort I could. She accepted the hug willingly. As we were embracing, something strange happened. A bright colorful aura emanated from the two of us like the Aurora Borealis before vanishing. What was that? I thought to myself pulling away from Fluttershy. Aaaah!!!!-Fluttershy’s pupils dilated and she jumped backwards nervously-How did you talk just now? At that time, I was really startled to hear Fluttershy’s voice in my head especially seeing as she didn’t even open her mouth when she spoke. Wait a minute, I thought. Can you honestly hear my thoughts? Y-Yes, I heard her answer back mentally as she cautiously approached me again. Unbelievable. It’s almost like we’re linked together psychically. Um… I guess so. You said that something terrible had happened to Princess Twilight. She’s not dead is she? I thought, nervously. No. She’s just… The tears came to her eyes again. I reached out both hands to dry them for her. It’s O.K. You don’t have to tell me what happened to her, but do you think you could show me to her? Fluttershy nodded silently and led me towards a flight of stairs. As we climbed each step, I started to feel uneasy. What terrible fate had befallen Princess Twilight that it brought Fluttershy to tears like this? I would find out soon enough. * * * * * * * * Reaching the top of the stairs, we walked down a shorter hallway before coming to one of the doors. Entering, I saw Rainbow Dash and Spike over by a bed near the balcony windows. Upon our entrance, the two of them looked up in mine and Fluttershy’s direction. “Hey, Fluttershy,” Spike finally spoke before noticing me. “Who’s this with you?” “Um… this is David,” she answered back. “David, these are Spike and Rainbow Dash. Has her condition changed?” Rainbow Dash shook her head sadly. “I haven’t left her side since we first found her here like this in case she came to,” Rainbow Dash stated, “but as of this point she hasn’t even flinched.” Listening to this conversation, I could only assume that they were talking about Princess Twilight. I approached the bed and, sure enough, the Alicorn princess was lying there with her eyes closed and an unhappy look on her face. Seeing her like this was heartbreaking. I reached out to touch her. “What’re you doing?” Rainbow Dash snapped at me. “I’m sorry.”-I recoiled at the outburst- “I was… just checkin’ ta see if I could find a pulse or a heartbeat.” “Oh. O.K.,” Rainbow Dash answered a bit gentler. I pressed two fingers against the side of Princess Twilight’s neck just below the head and felt a slight pulse. I also heard a faint heartbeat when I placed my ear against her chest. “Was this where you originally found her? In bed I mean.” “No,” Spike answered. “We found her collapsed on the floor next to her mirror. After finding her there, we moved her to the bed.” “And she didn’t even stir as you were moving her?” “Not once.” What do you think is wrong with her? I heard Fluttershy ask in my mind. “I think she’s in some kind of a coma,” I replied. “What’s a coma?” Rainbow Dash asked, confused. I’ve never had to explain what a coma is to someone so I tried to think of the right words to say, but also make sure that they understood. “Well… a coma is… like sleep… but different.” I struggled to find the right words. “With sleep… the body rests for a brief period… and then wakes up either by itself or by someone waking it up. But a coma… lasts a much longer period of time and… isn’t the sort of thing that one can be woken up from. Only the body itself can decide when someone wakes up from a coma.” “So we have no idea when she’ll wake up or even if she’ll wake up?” Spike questioned, putting emphasis on if. I never meant for it to be taken that way, but since Spike had already brought it up, I found no need to sugarcoat it. “Sadly yes,” my expression dropped. Rainbow Dash stared at the comatose princess with a look of worry on her face. “She was the one who first brought the rest of us together as friends,” she stated, sadly. “To think that she might not…” As Rainbow’s voice slowly trailed off, I walked over to her and placed a hand on her shoulder as a way of reassuring her. “I understand how hard this must be for you… for all of you, but Princess Twilight needs y’all ta stay strong for her.” Rainbow Dash nodded as, just like with Fluttershy, the Aurora Borealis aura glowed from the two of us for a few seconds. Whoa. Déjà vu, I thought to myself as I removed my hand from Rainbow Dash’s shoulder. Sweet mother of Celestia! Rainbow Dash’s voice echoed in my head as she jumped back. How are you talking without moving your lips? Wait. You can read my thoughts now too? Umm... I guess so, Rainbow replied, a bit unsure of herself. Why are you asking? Because the same thing happened to me and Fluttershy just a few minutes ago. Who are you talking to? I heard Fluttershy think. Rainbow Dash, I answered back. What? Rainbow Dash asked. No I was talking to Fluttershy. She can talk to you this way too? Yes she can. I can what? Fluttershy thought. At that point, I’d had enough of these two’s voices inside my head. “O.K. just stop!” I finally shouted. “Enough with this… psychic talkin’ you guys.” “What psychic talking?” Spike asked, totally confused. “The psychic talkin’ that happens whenever I touch somebo- uh… some… pony. Like this.” I reached over and touched Spike. However, when I touched Spike, nothing happened. I tried touching him again and again, but still nothing, aside from him laughing. “Ha ha ha ha ha ha. Please stop,” he begged through a fit of cackling. “I’m very ticklish.” “That’s weird,” I remarked, looking down at my hand. “Why wouldn’t it work?” “I don’t know,” Fluttershy answered back. “Maybe it only works on ponies.” “Maybe. Is there another pony here that we can test it on?” “Well our friend Pinkie Pie is out on the balcony,” Rainbow Dash commented. “That could work.” “Fluttershy, you and Spike go with him while I stay with Twilight.” “If you don’t mind, I think I’ll stay here with Twilight also,” Spike replied. “K.” Me and Fluttershy then headed out onto the balcony where we saw Pinkie Pie sitting there all alone. Her mane and tail didn’t have their usual bouncy appearance, but instead were flat and straight. Whatever was going on, she was clearly feeling depressed. “Pinkie Pie?” I spoke. Whether she was suddenly startled by my mentioning her name or if she was just naturally high strung, Pinkie let out a “Yipe”, jumped several feet into the air, did a 180, then landed facing us. Once she saw Fluttershy, she relaxed a little more, but was still slightly tense at the sight of me. “Fluttershy, who is this and how does he know my name?” she asked, slightly suspiciously. “Um… this is David and he knows your name because Rainbow Dash told him,” she answered back. “Oh. O.K. then. Nice to meet you, Davey.” No one has called me “Davey” since about 15 years ago when I was just a kid. Strangely enough though, hearing Pinkie call me by that name was soothingly pleasant, even bringing a smile to my face. “Likewise,” I replied. “So whatcha doin’ out here?” “Keeping lookout for whenever our friends Applejack and Rarity return.” “Where are they now?” “They went into the Everfree Forest looking for their sisters, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, as well as their sisters’ friend, Scootaloo,” Fluttershy explained. “How long ago did they leave?” “It’s been almost four hours now,” Pinkie stated, nervously. “I’m really starting to worry about them. What if something terrible happened to them?” “Don’t worry. I’m sure they’re fine.” “But what if-” Pinkie’s sentence was cut off by her making a gagging noise as if choking. She collapsed to the floor as Fluttershy panicked. “Fluttershy, go get Rainbow Dash and Spike,” I told her, all the while trying to remain calm. “Tell ‘em it’s a matter of life 'n death.” Fluttershy nodded swiftly and headed back inside while I ran over to Pinkie. I panicked as she lost consciousness. Without thinking, I reached my hand out to touch her. Upon touching her, the Aurora Borealis aura appeared and then vanished. Pinkie then regained consciousness, gasping for breath. That was super scary, I heard her think, terrified. Are you O.K.? I asked mentally. I think so. Wait a minute. What’re you doing in my head? I don’t know. This has been happening with every pony I’ve come in contact with so far. First Fluttershy, then Rainbow Dash, and now you. That’s kinda freaky, but also kinda cool. Do you know what had happened to you? No. I was just talking and then I suddenly found it hard to breathe. Almost like when you laugh soo hard you stop breathing except this wasn’t funny at all. At that moment, Fluttershy, Spike, and Rainbow Dash came rushing out. “What happened?” Rainbow Dash questioned, nervously. “What’s wrong?” “Nothing now,” Pinkie answered. “Wait. Weren’t you choking when I went to get them?” Fluttershy asked, slightly confused. “I was, but then Davey here saved me.” “How?” “I’m not sure,” I spoke. “I was panickin’ and I reached out ta touch her when that strange aura appeared. When it vanished, not only could we hear each other’s thoughts, but she was also fully healed.” “Weird,” Spike commented. “Tell me about it,” I stated, frustratedly. “What’s goin’ on? Why is this happenin’ to me?” “I have no idea,” Rainbow Dash answered. “Maybe Princess Celestia will know. Spike, have you been able ta contact her at all since all this has happened?” “I sent her an urgent letter, but she hasn’t responded,” Spike replied. “It’s been almost a day now.” “Something’s happenin’.” “What do you think it is?” Pinkie asked. "I don’t know, but I don’t like it. Rainbow Dash, I need you ta fly ta Canterlot as fast as your wings can carry you. Find out why there hasn’t been any answer from her.” “You got it.” Rainbow Dash offered a salute before taking to the sky. “The three of you, stay here and keep an eye on Princess Twilight ‘til my return.” “Why?” Fluttershy questioned, nervously. “Where are you going?” “Ta the Everfree Forest. Someone needs ta make sure that the others are O.K. Besides, I think I know a pony who just might be able ta explain what’s goin’ on.” --- Author's Note: Chapter originally published September 24th, 2014 on fimfiction.net.

  3. After watching the final episode of MLP: FIM, I knew I had to get back into writing more FanFiction. After almost a year, I decided to finish the first chapter of my second story. Please be sure to check it out on Fimfiction (link below) and feel free to leave any constructive feedback or criticism A Sapling of Friendship A treasure trove of old books and scrolls, the Golden Oak library stood for generations, sharing knowledge beyond its roots, knowledge that stretched to the far ends of Equestria. For many, it was merely a library, but for Twilight, it was home. With its absence marks a growing dilemma for Twilight, a problem that begins to plague her and her friends. Things are changing, a fact that each of them struggle to accept. But as time moves on, will their friendship change as well? As the Mane Six reminisce their time spent together, they make a surprising discovery, a discovery that Twilight hopes will not alter their changing lives even more...
  4. Where the Mane Six has reached their goals since season 7 (Rainbow Dash joins the Wonderbolts, Fluttershy builds the sanctuary etc.), do you think there are/were more rooms for them to grow and be explored as characters? And if so, what would it be about? I think they should have made more new situations and perspectives on them to explore. Make a completely new concept from a character if necessary. I can't imagine making a new Mane Six episode without doing it and still being fresh and fun as much as before. I think the common way to tackle this topic, which was already done by the show, is to set up a new threat to their position. For example, Rarity was one of the earliest character that was already successful in their field. But in Canterlot Boutique, she was challenged by Sassy Saddles, and it's kind of conflict that couldn't have happened if she wasn't that successful already. Rainbow Dash faces something seemingly similar with Lightning Dust in The Washouts, but it was primarily about Scootaloo and the same kind of conflict could have occured even when Rainbow Dash wasn't a Wonderbolt. It would have been interesting if there were a new flyer who could genuinely fly faster than Rainbow Dash. Pinkie Pie in Pinkie Pride is similar, but she was already in the same position since the show's start. Another way is to explore around their new status. It would have been interesting if we could know more details about Fluttershy's new sanctuary. I think Fluttershy in her new sanctuary with her animal friends has a potential to be its own TV show. CMCs and the episodes after them getting cutie marks kinda does this, where they were consulting blank flanks, and they were a new episode materials. Rainbow Dash and her Wonerbolt academy episodes explores her new workplace, but the episodes were controversial and had mixed reactions. Most importantly, after she joins the Wonderboldts for good, all she had to do was practice off-screen and perform acrobatics, which was oddly less interesting than when she wasn't a Wonderbolt. The Wonderbolt academy and the Wonderbolt members wasn't explored interestingly and had bad impressions to be honest. Twilight with her new princess position was probably the biggest kind of it. Twilight Time cleverly deals with her change in position while keeping her character's charm and as a grounded character as well. Another way is to tackle the character in a completely new perspective. This can work regardless of their new status. In Amending Fences, Twilight has to deal with her past mistakes of being unfriendly. This is less about being a princess and more about being a friend. Forever Filly explores the characters from a new perspective, but it is about the change and the new status they were currently in. Where the Apple Lies is about Applejack's past. For exploring past mistakes, it is similar to Amending Fences, but it feels more like a separate story line of its own. And digging up the character's past has huge limitations. Applejack being a musician kinda falls into this category, but it wasn't explored completely, and I don't feel strong about the idea. More importantly, it's about the exterior, not the interior of the character. Slice of Life did this to the whole show itself and the background characters. If the Mane Six could be dealt with the same kind of touch, it could be great. My specific ideas about what the Mane Six episodes could have done after they reached their goals are this. After Rainbow Dash being a Wonderbolt : There could have been more thoughts about what being a Wonderbolt is and their role as a public service. Also, I would like to know more about the Wonderbolt members and their relationship with Rainbow Dash, and also the whole institution. There could have been more insight about being an athlete and about self-discipline. After Twilight being a princess : It would have been better if the episodes were more about being a good friend and less about being a princess, which is the whole point of being a princess of friendship. Ultimately that makes her a better princess as well. Rarity : Maybe the Mane Six should have had a more episodes about their romantic interest. And if so, Rarity would be the perfect pony. There could have been more about what being such a successful and famous designer is, and also an insight about the creator/consumer relationship which the show sometimes dealt. After Fluttershy and her sanctuary : Episodes about Fluttershy meeting new animals who need help. Showing how the sanctuary specifically works and what it's all about. Pinkie Pie : Her having a better sense of reality and reevaluating herself and a better understanding of herself. The Last Laugh was about her unnecessarily finding a purpose of life which she already knew. But she could at least think about it again more deeply. Applejack : Applejack already knows what to do. But there could have been more about her being in charge and being more comfortable about it, evolving from herself in Apple Family Reunion. Applejack episodes could also focus more about her as an individual and less about her family.
  5. All of the ponies have nice names, but some people like to give nicknames to them. I was wondering which ponies you gave nicknames too and what the nickname was? Here is my list: Fluttershy-Flutters Twilight Sparkle- Twi Rainbow Dash- Dashie Octavia- Tavi Luna- Woona (Almost forgot about Luna) Rarity- Marshmallow
  6. From what we have seen in the show which of the mane 6 is the most badass. Rarity! Fluttershy! Applejack! Twilight Sparkle! Pinkie Pie! Rainbow Dash!
  7. Their personalities and antics are the factors at hand. I realize Fluttershy may get along with everyone but for some people this is not the case. (Moderator edit, 10/15/2012: This thread now covers which ponies you identify with and whose personalities are most like your own.)
  8. Something that has always bugged me about MLP is how big of a visual gap there is between the ponies of the show. We've seen foals, "adult" ponies, and elderly ponies. But we've never seen any that appear to be inbetween foals and adults in terms of size and maturity. Let's start off with what we do know: Lauren Faust has stated that the Mane 6 are young adults with a maturity level anywhere between 12-18 years of age. Fluttershy stated that she is a year older than Pinkie Pie. In "Cutie Mark Chronicles", she visually appears to be more mature than every other filly in her class. Did she just grow faster than the others? This is the closest we've seen to a "teenage pony". It's hinted in "Pinkie Pride" that Rainbow Dash is 21 years old as her birthday cake has 21 candles. This is consistent with the lifestyle of the ponies in the show. The Mane 6 are all out of school, all have jobs or occupations of some sort that a normal adult would have, and all live in their own residence by their own means. They display the intelligence of someone who's at the very least a young adult If we are to follow the traditional time period in which people mature to the point of living independently, we can presume based off this that the Mane 6 are anywhere between 17-22 years of age in "human years". In Equestria Girls, when Twilight goes through the portal, she transforms into a being who appears to be either 17 or 18 years of age as she, along with the rest of the Mane 6, are portrayed as late high school students. As for the CMC and other similar ponies, they appear to be anywhere between the ages of 7-12. Equestrian schooling seems to finish at the basic level after the human equivalent of elementary school as no "middle" or "high school" equivalents are ever mentioned. This makes sense because in Equestrian society, ponies learn their special talents (cutie marks) around this age, making further schooling largely unnecessary. The equivalent of college seems to be present, albeit as an extension of their studies in whatever talent they possess. But where are the "teenage ponies", the ones inbetween foals and adult ponies? An argument could be made that the Mane 6 are actually around 14-16 years old, but this still doesn't explain why ponies between the ages of the Mane 6 and the CMC are never seen. A few theories/explanations/possibilities that may be the cause for this: Theory 1: Around the age of 12-15, ponies undergo a massive growth spurt, quickly going from appearing like foals to appearing like adults. The reason "teenage ponies" aren't seen is because they don't stay in such a visual state for long. This would also draw a parallel with how real horses grow - they mature rapidly from child to adult. Theory 2: Some of the ponies in the show are meant to be representative of teenage ponies, however the art style and constant usage of templates causes them to appear similarly sized as adults Theory 3: The writers/designers simply never wanted to design teenage ponies, and they leave the ponies ages up in the air on purpose ------- What are your thoughts on the matter?
  9. After Shadow Play and the movie (and, technically, School Daze) had the Mane 6 save the day, I thought things went back to normal. But with School Raze having the underdogs saving the day again, I wonder if the Mane 6 aren't allowed to save the day anymore.
  10. If the show were to introduce the concept of "switching Elements" so often brought up in the fandom, what would be the most fitting and believable way from them to do it if everypony had a different Element? Here's what I think: Pinkie Pie= Honesty. Rainbow Dash= Laughter. Rarity= Magic. Twilight Sparkle= Kindness. Applejack= Loyalty. Fluttershy= Generosity.
  11. Rank the Mane 6 in terms of how much they mean to the group and how much would change if they left. Here's mine: 1.) Applejack. 2.) Rainbow Dash. 3.) Twilight Sparkle. 4.) Pinkie Pie. 5.) Rarity. 6.) Fluttershy. If someone asks me to explain mine, I will.
  12. Pretty self explanatory, rank the Mane Six separately for how much attention the get from the show (i.e. biggest role in the series, movie, EQG, and any other canon content) and how much attention they get from the fandom (i.e. "best pony", fan projects, etc.) Here's mine, from most attention to least: Show 1.) Twilight Sparkle. Even if FiM doesn't really have a main character, since the episodes arguably focus on a wide range of characters, if you were asked who the main character was, you'd probably say Twilight Sparkle. This is evident across the series, comics and books. (Yes, I'm including those). She takes on the leader role, and has been one of the primary focuses in the first EQG movie, the MLP Movie, Twilight's Kingdom, Princess Twilight Sparkle, The Return of Harmony, A Canterlot Wedding, The Crystal Empire, The Cutie Re-Mark, Shadow Play, School Daze, several of the IDW comic lines, and numerous stand alone FiM episodes. To say she isn't the most focused on in canon content would be weird, but I'd hear you out. 2.) Pinkie Pie. Is it just me, or is Pinkie taking on much more than a comic relief role now? Sure, she fell short in Season 8, but she had a lot of focus in Season 7, so I think that was necessary. Not only that, but just look at her role in the MLP Movie. A stronger role for Pinkie is definitely developing. 3.) Rainbow Dash. Not only did Rainbow garner a lot of attention in Season 8, but she's always been crucial to the show, ever since her Sonic Rainboom. The show, although sometimes showing her ego to the extreme, clearly shows respect towards her, considering everything she's done that is of importance. 4.) Rarity. Ah, here we are at the bottom three. Rarity is a character that sometimes gets a lot of attention, sometimes falls short, and sometimes just fills Pinkie's roll as the comedic support, as seen in the MLP Movie. With Rarity being such a mixed bag, it easily landed her here, as she isn't as brushed aside as the bottom two. 5.) Applejack. One year ago, Applejack would've ranked at the bottom of my list, however EQG changed my perspective on that. Not only was Applejack prominent in "RoF" but she also was giving a good load of attention in "LoE", as well as having two solos in the shorts. This wasn't all that landed her here, as she is steadily progressing in the show, too, but the roots of her character land her here. 6.) Fluttershy. Unlike Applejack, Flutters is steadily regressing in the attention the show, as well as EQG, is giving her. What is to blame for this? I'd say that it was Flutters arc to make her more sure of herself. Now, I guess the show doesn't see much to do with her, as she is melting into another Applejack. Now, her former shell of personality is only played for laughs. Fandom I'm not explaining this one, as it's pretty self explanatory if you've hung around this fandom for even a week, and I believe the show's attention rankings were more important. 1.) Rainbow Dash/Fluttershy. 2.) Pinkie Pie. 3.) Rarity. 4.) Twilight Sparkle. 5.) Applejack.
  13. Here's mine in order of 1 being "loves their pet the most" and 6 being the opposite. 6.) Twilight Sparkle. Twilight sees Owlowiscious as an assistant, not really as a pet. Although her love for him is clearly there, I'm pretty sure she loves Spike more. 5.) Rarity. Again, her love for Opal is there, but man are there instances where she treats this cat horribly, mainly prominent in "Sweet and Elite". 4.) Applejack. Applejack loves Winona, of course, just not to the extent of the next top 3. 3.) Fluttershy. Fluttershy owns a LOT of pets, but "Angel" is the one we see her with the most. Fluttershy would do anything this devious little rabbit said in the earlier seasons, but now she's developed into a healthier, if not blander, character. 2.) Pinkie Pie. I try (and fail) to look at Pinkie and Gummy's relationship and not say "Awww...." because they are so cute!!!!! Pinkie's gonna Pinkie, and no where is the craziest of her shown except when she's with Gummy. I think the key episode of their relationship is "Party of One" where she almost forgets her own birthday but remember's Gummy's. Sure, a bit weird for the party extraordinaire, but nevertheless adorable. 1.) Rainbow Dash. What originally was annoyance for this tortoise soon turned into unconditional love. I'm pretty sure you all know the episode that puts Rainbow in this slot. Vice versa: 6.) Angel. He constantly abuses and takes advantage of Fluttershy, and while that has now cooled down, his previous treatment of Fluttershy has still not completely vanished. I'm sure there's SOME love he has for Fluttershy, but this bunny falls short when compared to the rest. 5.) Opal. Opal meets Rarity's actions with usual annoyance, as seen again in "Sweet and Elite". She does show love to Rarity, of course, but I think their personalities match all too well. 4.) Gummy. I'm pretty sure Gummy loves Pinkie Pie... but then again, I'm only pretty sure. 3.) Winona. Winona's a typical, happy lil' dog who loves Applejack jut how a normal dog would treat their owner. I can't fault her for this, but Winona certainly falls flat when compared to our final two. 2.) Owlowiscious. Owlowiscous is practically a second Spike, except more wise and definitely more lucky. Owlowiscous loves Twilight, too bad that love isn't often showcased in episodes now. 1.) Tank. Tank not only saved Rainbow when she was stuck, but also often just looks happy and at ease with her. Also, this: I've died of cuteness. Please help.
  14. Have you ever wanted your OC in a game? Well, I'm making a RPG maker game that needs background ponies. The OCs will be in towns I made up and will have dialogue, sprites, etc. The sprites of the OCs will be made by me, and the story plot will also be made be me. You will play the Mane 6 as they journey around a new world, going through the OC towns and communities. Naturally, I'll need a ton of OCs. You will be credited for your character and the game will be entirely free. Game updates and the finished project will be posted here. Please keep in mind this is my first game. If you want your OC in the game, you'll have to reply to this with the following: 1. A reference picture or detailed description of the character 2. A good bio of the character 3. The name you'd like me to use in the credits YOU MAY SUMBIT MORE THAN ONE CHARACTER! Please submit your characters! Thank you for reading!
  15. I've always wondered - what do you guys think the Mane 6 and CMC would look like as actual humans - no multicoloured hair, eyes, skin tones (basically human skin tones, hair colors, eye colors). By the way, please don't call anypony out for being racist just because they imagine the Mane 6 and CMC all white, that's not nice . Mane 6: Twilight Sparkle - I always imagined Twilight as either Hispanic or African- American, with thick, dark brown hair that goes halfway down her back, and dark brown eyes. Also, she would have glasses >3< Rarity - Asian, probably Korean, with waist-length black hair and dark dark brown, almost black, eyes. I don't think its possible to have black hair and blue eyes naturally. Fluttershy - Japanese- American, long light brown hair (almost blonde, but not quite), with gentle green eyes with a faint blue tint. My cousin has a friend that's Japanese, and she's very gentle and shy with others. Rainbow Dash - I always imagined her as the one that Rarity would get jealous at for her looks. For her, I imagine her as a white (don't get mad at me), with thick, platinum blonde hair, slightly below waist length (No, I'm not going to imagine her with short hair ) and large, pale blue eyes framed with jet black eyelashes. It's easier to dye blonde hair anyways, so she can easily dye it rainbow Pinkie Pie - I can't imagine a good race for her, probably either caucasian or white, with super duper curly red hair and blue eyes. Red is similar to pink, and blue is her eye color in the show Applejack - Pretty obvious, but, whatever, white with long yellow- blonde hair, green eyes, and tanned skin, since she works out in the sun frequently, CMC: Apple Bloom - white, long, straight red hair, amber eyes. #nailedit Sweetie Belle - white (I just can't imagine Sweetie Belle as an Asian, sorry Rarity ), long, curly, strawberry blonde hair, pale green eyes. The Chicken Scootaloo - white (damn I have a good chance on being called for for being racist), shoulder length red hair, and.... green eyes? I don't know. Comment down below what you would think they would have as their eye color, hair color, and race as humans! Adios!
  16. When the Tree of Harmony saved the Student 6 a student said "their glowing like the elements" that is incorrect they were glowing like the Mane 6 like the rainbow vision from season 4 were not the colors of a rainbow but the Mane 6's colors. Twilight is purple, Pinkie is pink, Rainbow dash is blue, Applejack is orange, Fluttershy is yellow, and Rarity is white. They weren't glowing the colors of the elements but the element bearers. Gallus was purple=Magic Silverstream was pink=Laughter Smolder was blue=Loyalty Yona was orange=Honesty Sandbar was yellow=Kindness Ocellus was white=Generosity
  17. What would the Mane 6 think of the MMO game, Warframe?
  18. If the Mane 6 had Autobot partners, who would they be?
  19. Sunset asking that Starlight is Twilight's student in "Mirror Magic" and Starlight saying yes indicates that this takes place before season 7. Do to the fact that Starlight was not in "Dungeons and Discord" could say after the mane 6 left to Yakyakistan Starlight went with Sunset to the EQG world and might have been a little confused about the difference between a friendship mission and a "overnight goodwill tour", and after returning being there for a few days she might have gotten a habit of using the EQG dialog such as hand which would explain why Starlight used the word hand twice in "Every Little Thing She Does". Which would make sense having "Mirror Magic" take place between "Dungeons and Discord" and "Every Little Thing She Does".
  20. Having Starlight and Trixie together in the movie means it has to take pace after "No Second Prances" sense that's the first time they met. Not having the Royal Guard would explain why Celestia had Flash Magnus be the new drill sargent after season 7. Having it take place then would also explain why the changelings and the Pillers of Equestria were not in the movie but I'm not sure about the yaks but if the movie takes place after "No Second Prances" the mane 6 haven't been to Yakyakistan yet, unless you count Pinkie kinda. But griffins probably wouldn't want to help, and sense Ember just became Dragon Lord she probably needs to impose her rule, and that I don't think the ponies would trust all the dragons yet to listen to Ember. As for the map expanding, remember the map was broken after "The Cutie Re-Mark", which would also explain why it took so long and that Mount Aris needed to be repaired and the new train station there. As for Twilight saying "This happened while we were gone?" could be when they went after the Pony of Shadows instead of the Storm King. Why Sandbar mentioned The Storm King but not Queen Chrysalis nor the Pony of Shadows is that no pony would probably know that Chrysalis replaced the mane 6, the princesses, etc and that the Pony of Shadows never appeared in public, and why Apple Bloom was recapping the movie in "surf and/or Turf" was because The Storm King was what directly affected the hippogriffs. This I the best I can do saying it takes place between season 6 episodes 6-7 and explaining how. But there is one thing that contradicts all of this unless you can help me, the new throne room, it is possible they were working on a new throne room for a while and was finished in the movie in a different part of the castle and was going to turn the old throne room into something else but for what happened to the new one in the movie they had to go back to the old one while that was being repaired, but the whole of Canterlot got repaired when they retuned all the magic at the end of the movie? Write below if you can think of any reason why Celestia and Luna would still be using the old throne room until season 8.
  21. A lot of fans seem to think the Mane 6 have reached the limit of their character development. What makes them think this?
  22. At the end of "The Ticket Master" how were the Mane 6 using magic to carry the tickets home. Spike wasn't and Twilight and Rarity make sense being unicorns but the others shouldn't be able to use magic.
  23. Fluttershy isn't shy... and never really had been, with the exception of the first episode where she first meets Twilight Sparkle. But even then, it was more of an act of social anxiety, as someone who is shy would still answer to questions, especially when they are in a one-on-one conversation. She has never acted like that since the first episode, so she was more or less out of character in comparison of the rest of the show. Yes, Fluttershy is the following: timid, introvert, meek, reticent, quiet and apprehensive, but she isn't shy; she can, and has on numerous occasions, went up to a stranger or group of strangers and talked to them, without breaking a sweat. She also has stage fright, but this is also not related with shyness. Anyone can have stage fright, but the show just decides to go with the whole cliché "cowered who is scared of everything" stereotype, and uses Fluttershy as the main protagonists that overcomes fears, instead of using other characters to create more unique and realistic character personalities. Although, this is a kids show after all. All the characters are strongly based on stereotypes and each have particular roles within the show. This is used to make it easier for the audience to follow as well as demonstrates juxtaposition between each of the characters. Most people, including myself, would have assumed Fluttershy portrayed as being shy, due to her name: Flutter"shy." However, her name is only to describe her being a pegasus and having an interest in animals. It also describes her butterfly cutie mark, by the use of assonance, consonance and end rhyme. I have done a lot of research in to this subject from books and articles; not just searches off the internet. I'm sure some people may disagree with me or have a different understanding of the word "shy." This this is just my thoughts and knowledge on the subject. I'm not trying to go against anyone who likes Fluttershy being a shy character (I'm aware some people relate to her that way, witch I think is great; there's nothing wrong with personal alterations.) I just wanted to share this information, as a lot of people can get confused with the true meanings and definitions of words. A lot of other forms of media have made the same misunderstandings in their work too. It's a miscommunication made by many people as it's never a popular topic and possibly mislead by varies of social dialect. For those who don't know, the "true" definition of shy, is to feel unconfotable around strangers and find it hard to talk to them. That is it. Fluttershy has never deminstraited this ever (apart from the first episode's "funny" joke with Twilight.) People confuse being too kind and polite, timid, scared and quiet with shyness.
  24. Hello everypony, I'm not sure if this topic has already been up before but I couldn't find it, so I made my own. So, yesterday I was thinking about economy and how the ponies hold up with money. Specifically, the mane 6. Applejack has a family that she has to take care of, so she obviously needs to earn money and we've seen in the show that money is what she often aims for when it comes to it. She wanted to sell at the Gala, she sells cider, she sells apples and pies in a stand in the middle of Ponyville.. She really tries to earn money now and again. This fixation is probably because she needs to take care of her farm and family to keep it all running. Pinkie Pie works at Sugarcube Corner, probably to earn money and buy her party accessories? And I cannot imagine that it's free to live in a house like they all do. They probably pay rent somehow, all of them. Rarity has her boutique, makes dresses for others and probably earns money that way. She has a sister as well, that she sometimes need to take care of. As well as keeping her budget up to buy fabric and other necessary things for her dress-making. Twilight is a Princess now but I'm not sure how she makes money... She was a student of Celestia before, so I'm still a bit confused about that. Has anyone else gotten any idea? Rainbow Dash literally doesn't do much at all. Perhaps she works for Clouds-dale somehow, but that sounds a bit weak of a theory to me. Fluttershy takes care of ponies pets, but I cannot imagine she would charge many ponies for anything like that. Otherwise she doesn't do much for a living either... Lend me your ideas and thoughts, I'd love to know what you think!
