    Racism.... controversial question because yes, because ... why not? just to see different opinions ... What is the most racist thing that you have seen in your life? in my case it is a difficult question because I believe that the only racist I have seen in my life has been hatred towards Cubans and now racism towards Venezuelans (this is for socialist reasons in my country) but apart from that I rarely see that someone is racist .... My father once told me that he traveled to Panama and sat in any square, right next to a man with dark skin, this man asked him: why do you sit next to me? you do not see my color? you are white! Whites do not sit with people of my color. (The man spoke feeling bad for his skin color) my dad answered: are you sick in the head? your color its great, I am not the great thing, I am a person, just like you! (Although this was not properly racist, but my dad could see how bad society could be with such a mentality, nobody is inferior or superior to anyone) Having said that, what has been the most racist thing you've seen? Has it been with foreigners? has it been for skin colors? any other? Let's talk about controversy.
  2. I was just listening to some rawstyle music and I thought, what are others minds on this genre of electronic go on and post your opinions and ideas. I'll leave here some links for songs with this genre if you actually never heard about this or don't know how it sounds...
  3. -It took me half of the first season to become a brony -I didn't hate Mare Do Well -I found the Crystal Empire extremely disappointing -I prefer Celestia over Luna -I hate Just for SIdekicks with a passion
  4. So istarted watching attack on titan a couple of days ago. First I would like to say, I dont like anime that much. However, this show has absolutly hooked me. It is so awesome and I love it so much. The animation is awesome, the writing and story are magnificent and the score is just beautiful, but I would like some body elses opinion on the show. What do you think of Attack on Titan?

  6. I watched Coco recently and it was really accurate, and that's coming from someone who celebrates day of the dead. But what do you guys think? Could there have been some improvements or was it perfect the way it was?
  7. chirox the pony


    Yeah I never thought about actually doing something here again. It's been over 2 years since I lost interest in this show. I haven't touched anything to do with it since. But I feel the need to finally come back here and give a reflection on this chapter of my life. From December of 2012 till about November of 2015 I was into a television programme called My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. For nearly 3 years I was obsessed with this show as well as a lot of people aged around 13 to 25. But nowadays most of that fanbase from the early to mid 2010s have abandoned this show resulting in MLP really not being a big thing on the internet anymore. Occasionally you may come across the odd person who still identifies as a brony but other than that the fascination with the TV show and subculture it spawned has all but disappeared from the internet. Whereas furries never died and continue to be popular, MLP to me shows all the signs of a fad, a trend. From 2011 till about 2013 MLP was seen as this cool and hip little hipster subculture that a lot of adolescent and adult males wanted in on. But given a couple years those people all gave it up. In hindsight the only reason I and many others got into it was because we wanted to be in an in-group. We wanted to be part of a big group online and get little in jokes and feel like we were cool and rebellious in our own weird little way. Claims we were "changing the definition of masculinity" were rampant. We genuinely believed we were a significant force in society. But this of course wasn't true. I loved talking about it with people just to see their reaction. It was like my own little lashing out at society and being special and different. The TV show itself is just very average to me nowadays. It's stuff I had seen in a million other shows prior. It's characters were very basic archetypes that could be found in a ton of other shows. It wasn't anything impressive back then, it's not impressive now. Really all the hype came from fans mutually telling each other that what they were watching was way better then it actually was. It's just average. Nothing more, nothing less. I do kinda appreciate being involved in this. I learned not to throw myself at fads, learned not to let my interests define me. Otherwise I'd be back into the state I was back then. And now I have this massive catalogue of cringey statements on this website. And I guess I'll have to deal with it. Say what you like in the comments.

    G1 (Tales) Thoughts on Tales?

    I recently started watching Tales on DVD from Shout! Factory, and I can't believe I missed out on this one back in the 90's. It has some interesting characters, even though it seems kinda cheesy, but I still like it somehow, despite being a 26 year old male. The theme song is very catchy for me, believe it or not. What does anyone else think of this show?
  9. There are some TV series that just seem to bring out nostalgia in everyone. They may not be as good as we remember them to be, but there's nonetheless a reason to why these shows are classics in our hearts. The Twilight Zone is one of those series for many fans of science fiction as well as those of the macabre and the strange. The writing is usually solid (I do mean usually, since even Rod Serling himself has written a few duds), and the pacing is usually done quite well. Most episodes have an interesting premise, and usually deliver on utilizing the potential to intrigue with heir episodes, with well-written plot twists at the end of episodes that shock the audience into a love of the series. This will be a list of the episodes that did what Twilight Zone does best with nearly flawless execution, and a very short review for each, that may be 2 or 3 lines long giving the gist of why they are ranked where they are. Before we start, let's go through the 6 Honorable Mentions (it was really hard to mention less than that) for this list: These are "On Thursday We Leave for Home", "The New Exhibit", "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", " The Masks", "Number 12 Looks Just Like You", and "The Invaders." These were all really good episodes, even if they couldn't make this list. This wasn't listed in any particular order, but the closest to the list would probably be "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet." The episode was written extremely well. Probably would have put it in the list if I didn't have a slight bit of a bias against William Shatner as am actor. THE TWENTY BEST EPISODES OF THE TWILIGHT ZONE 20. "Twenty-Two"- This episode is very creepy, and entertaining. It also has a clever way of hiding it's most major plot twist by throwing in a small twist a few times in a way that just works so well with the episode itself. I'm not going to spoil the ending, but that really made it for me. It's amazing, and well thought out, even as Twilight Zone episodes go. 19. "People are Alike All Over"- This episode had an interesting way of sneaking in a premonition at the beginning, that sounded like it was meant positively, but, ironically, actually made for one of the most gripping, dark, and clever plot twists of the entire series. Of course, keeping this spoiler free yet again. 18. "Nothing in the Dark"- As like "Twenty-Two", another very creepy episode with some clever writing, as well as probably some of the better acting in the series. At first we think the old lady is completely crazy (she really seemed that way), but, in another one of the great classic Twilight Zone plot twists, it's actually so revealed she wasn't quite as we thought. 17. "Nick of Time"- Oh great, another good one with Shatner that would have been better if Jack Klugman or the like were in it instead. Nonetheless, the episode was intriguing to say the least, and it had almost perfect pacing and an extremely intriguing premise. But seriously, Shatner must have had an amazing agent to be in this many classics... 16. "The Hitchhiker"- I was really amazed (and sort of but not really creeped out) with this one when I initially watched this one as a kid, and it still is very interesting to this day. Really, I must have watched this one 20 times and the twist ending still gets me. Though it's presented in such a way it makes sense once it's revealed to you. Almost as well paced as "Nick of Time." 15. "It's a Good Life"- Classic and very creepy episode. But since I feel like I may get questions on why it's so low, I'll answer you this: the ending was in no way startling or surprising. I expected that sort of ending from the story considering the boy's powers as well as his narcissistic traits. Also, it was slightly too out there for me to like that much. 14. "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?"- Another classic. Absolutely amazing episode, and the real plot twist was completely unexpected. I would never have expected the way it ended. It would be top 5 though if it were harder to actually figure out who the martian was. I hadn't watched it in years and knew who it was by the 5 or 6 minute mark. 13. "The Midnight Sun"- Another intriguing Twiight Zone episode. Almost tired of using the word, but it's too much of a match for the episodes and Twilight Zone as a whole. Anyways, a big factor as to why this is above some of the classics everyone likes is how the ending actually turned out. I was legitimately SHOCKED by how it ended. 12. "Where is Everybody?"- An episode with an amazing premise, and amazing acting that really did quite the job of complementing the situation. The ending was like the ending "The Hitchhiker" sort of. It's a twist that still sort of gets me, and it actually makes perfect sense of the entire episode when you think about it. 11. "Eye of the Beholder"- This episode has certifiably the BEST ending of the entire series, that alone justifies it's placement here. But the seamless execution of the whole episode's premise reallt sealed the deal for its spot on this list. I'm actually having trouble not spoiling this one because the ending was so perfect... 10. "And the Sky Was Opened"- This is an odd one out, there's no real twist or shocking ending here. Just an episode that's well paced (it is a tad on the slow side), that's a thrill to watch every time. . It is completely unnerving to watch what happens to the main characters over the course of this episode. Very creepy and weird, but in a good way I promise. 09. "The Obsolete Man"- A cautionary tale against authoritarian government. A well-written masterpiece with an interesting premise, that Burgess Meredith executed almost flawlessly, as the librarian in this episode. What it ended up being is a classic that I've yet to see a bad word about, and after watching it, it's easy to see why. 08. "Living Doll"- An unnerving cautionary tale against bad stepfathers, that borders the line of macabre. The great thing about this episode is that this is one time where a seemingly evil doll is actually acting out of good faith, or so it could seem like. The piece was paced well, with acting that fit the story very well. 07. "Long Distance Call"- This was a weird one to say the least. No real twist at the end, but nonetheless satisfying. Sure it was one of the six episodes done in videotape, but quality scripting and the execution of the script in itself more than accounts for it. Won't spoil anything for you here, and considering there'd be spoilers very early on, can't say much more. 06. "Walking Distance"- A weird episode that involved some timey-wimey things, and a very strange visit of a 30-some year old man into the town of his childhood. The episode was presented fairly well, and the situation presented very well. Literally the only issue keeping it from trumping a similar episode later on is that the pacing could have been a little bit better. 05. "The After Hours"- One of the most creative and properly paced episodes of the series, that has perhaps one of the best endings. I will not spoil it for you, here however. I will just say this: the woman you follow in the story is not exactly what she appears to be, and the 9th floor of that department store is, for all intents and purposes, the Twilight Zone. 04. "To Serve Man"- An absolute classic, and it is not hard to see why. It is the best written episode in the entire series, bar none. The episode also has a very nice twist at the end (that at least SOMEBODY should have been suspicious of all along), that was nonetheless a little bit predictable (why it's only number 4 on this list). 03. "A Stop at Willoughby"- This was the episode I was talking about earlier on in the list. This is basically a better version of "The Walking Distance" with improved pacing, a miserable woman that never deserved the main character's affection, and an ever-so slightly improved premise. I debated where to position this one, I was initially going to put it second actually. 02. "Time Enough at Last"- This episode is considered one of the show's absolute best, for good reason. The plot flows extraordinarily well, and all of the several twists and turns feel highly impactful to the episode's progression. I'm also not spoiling the ending, but after the twist at the end, I feel particularly sorry for the main character of this episode. 01. "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street"- Bar none the best episode in he entire series, that is the best representation of Rod Serling's writing genius, and it has definitively the best acting in the show's entire 156 episode run. This episode is so close to flawless I might as well just say every facet is flawless and among the best in the series. I will end on this note, that this series deserves all of the praise it has gotten over the years. Even with all of the duds in the show's run (JESS-BELLE), the show is in general an absolutely fantastic venture into the unknown that will likely leave you wanting more and wishing it hadn't ended so soon after watching all of the episodes. The show is just about as much of a masterpiece as I remember it being. An impressive show that's probably about a 9/10 in my book, because the stellar outnumber the terrible MASSIVELY. I would have a hard time making a list half this size talking about terrible episodes, and with this list, I had to take some greats out and not even mention them, episodes like "The Dummy" that was absolutely stellar (To be honest, if I had to rank it it would probably be somewhere between 27 and 30). More A+'s than D's or lower, surely. Absolutely wonderful series that I couldn't recommend enough to fans of 60's television, the macabre, or science-fiction.
  10. I have avoided the ToonKriticY2K thread for the past several days. I noticed that it very much turned into a Debate Pit-esque thread in which a few members of our forum community (who will not be named) have lashed out. And it is completely understandable that they are having difficulty dealing with the disgusting actions of a prominent member of the fandom as a whole. I wanted to let all of this process for a bit before saying something apart from merely condemning ToonKritic's actions, which I have already done on a few occasions. About a week ago, I first learned about Toon's actions via a video that gave a basic rundown of the situation. I have been a brony for over 3 and a half years now. I often took to the internet for my fix of pony-related content long before I even made a Poniverse account. During that time, I grew to enjoy the brony analysis community on YouTube: their personalities, their unique insights, and above all, their passion for what they love. While I wasn't really a fan of ToonKritic's content from his own channel, I certainly recognized him from the wide array of collaborations that he did with other people in the analysis community. I even came across some of his writing on Fimfiction and enjoyed what he brought to the table. It pained me to find out what Toon has been doing behind the scenes. And at first, I didn't even know the full extent of what had been happening. I looked into the situation even more and eventually I learned that ToonKritic had been engaging in similar illicit acts with minors for more than a decade. I already knew that what he had done was heinous and has no place in not only this fandom, but a civil society. But as I dug deeper, things began to look even worse. I am incredibly ashamed of members of this fandom who have allowed such perverse activities, no matter how serious they actually were, to continue for a long time. I am ashamed of members of the fandom, specifically the analysis community, who learned about the full extent of ToonKritic's sexual abuse of minors, and kept their mouths shut about it until a Skype call and various screenshots of Toon's interactions with his victims were leaked. Pedophilia, and indeed ALL forms of sexual abuse or harassment, are not something to be taken lightly. There are victims whose livelihoods were shattered by the actions of a manipulative child sexual predator. They will forever have to live with the memories of this man taking advantage of them. Justice needs to be served, but that alone is not enough. What about other people who have suffered at the hands of members of this fandom? It is an odd coincidence that a thread about pedophilia and underage dating in the MLP Forums community showed up in the Feedback section over a week before ToonKritic's behavior was made public. And this reminded me that incidents of a similar nature have happened close to home. This community is made up of people from their teens all the way to their 40s. In a setting where adults are grouped with and allowed to interact with minors, then there is a risk of abuse. I'm not saying that the majority of adult users of this forum would do such a thing. I'm not stereotyping adult users of the site, because I myself am a 20 year old. But it appears to me that in some way, shape, or form, there have been underage members of this very community who were victimized by older users (who were then given appropriate consequences). And that hurts. Yes, the fandom has proven time and time again to be a force for good and positivity in the world. It has broken down barriers. It has changed lives for the better, like my own. It has been a light in the lives of many people in this dark world. But every group is going to have its bad apples. If we won't bring to light and discuss the truth that sexual abuse can and does exist within this fandom, then how are we going to fix the problem? While the fandom has been a wonderful thing for many people, staying silent about a problem we are aware of for the sake of preventing controversy is a disaster waiting to happen. What do you care about more? The public's view of a fandom that is honestly already stigmatized to begin with, or the innocent young people who have fallen victim to abusers who just so happened to be bronies? So in light of the ToonKritic mess, I have this to say to the members of this forum, and indeed all members of this fandom who may happen to lurk on the site without being active contributers. If you are being victimized by a member of this forum, this fandom, or anybody else, then there are people you can reach out to for support. We have administrators and other staff here who have dealt with abusive situations within the community before. There are authorities who can help you get out of an unsafe situation. And I honestly believe that there are good people within this very community who you can talk to and who will be there to support you. You are not alone. As for myself? I have noticed quite a bit of talk--not just here, but indeed across all places on the internet where bronies congregate--about leaving the fandom behind in light of the controversy. I will not be leaving the fandom as a result of the actions of people like ToonKritic. I believe that it is your choice, and your choice alone, to stay or to leave. If you no longer feel comfortable in the fandom, then I respect that. But I am incredibly ashamed of the members of the community who have committed such acts of abuse, and who let such things slide without making it clear that there is a problem. I sincerely hope that together, we can tackle this problem head-on, and foster not just a forum community, but a fandom with no tolerance for sexual abuse, harassment, or misconduct in any form, as well as a positive culture that seeks to empower the individual fans in the community and make a positive difference in their lives. -------------------------------------- So, with that, I thank you for reading this. I didn't plan on it being this long, but I needed to vent and express my thoughts on the matter.

    General Bad shopping experiences?

    Have you ever had bad shopping experiences? Like at a grocery store or mall??? If so, tell us your stories! Maybe someone will have the same experience as you? One of my stories: It was around BlackFriday this year and my mom and I decided to go to Wal-Mart a few days before the big BF antics start. A lot of things were on sale so at first we though we would get some good stuff. Boy, were we WRONG. Almost every good product was either sold out or broken because people fought over them. Not only that, everyone around us kept running into each other being really rude. The worst part was that it was really hard to escape the madness! Every time we tried to leave certain areas, people would crowd around and block our way out. We FINALLY made it out with nothing but a few rolls of toilet paper and a few pens.

    What is your opinion of me?

    Simply put, just say what you think of me as WiiGuy the Forums Member. I'm curious about that.
  14. So what do you think of the spookiest holiday? I personally LOVE Halloween! Its so much fun!!! You get to dress up as anything you want and go out in public to show off your cuteness/spookiness! Whats better is that you get treats for it!!! I may be 19 but I still go out in costume and eat delicious candy! This year I will be an anthro kitty character (not my fursona). Some people think its an "evil" holiday, which it pretty silly to me. To each their own I guess. What about you?
  15. I will keep insisting with this matter, because I Just have to be insistent about this. I’m looking for a Role Play (1v1 or 1w1) developed in the Equestria Girls Universe. But I must also know your opinions about this matter. What do you think of Roleplaying in Eg versions? even, do you think this kind of activity is something that you can find active in the fandom? or do you think I’m wasting my time looking for something like this? If you would not like to roleplay, at the very least can you point me a good direction to find this I have been looking, for at least for 7 months. Have some mercy by helping me or just crushing this illusion? in both cases I would appreciate the comments or the help, when you have wondered the internet for so long trying to find something you once lost, it takes an emotional toll, a big one at that.
  16. Back about a week ago, Mozilla announced Firefox Quantum, their newest, and greatest, version of Firefox yet. I decided to drop Chrome for a week and try this new Firefox as my daily driver. Here's my opinion on it
  17. This was a bit of a while ago, back in July, but I was at Supercon in Raleigh, NC cause my friend wanted to meet up there. So I'm in the "basement" area where all the merchandise vendors are and I run across the celebrity autograph section. Most of them are empty but I saw the header "Tara Strong" and a crowd behind it and I'm like "no way" and try to find the line. I end up in the line for the guy who voices Steven Universe behind this massive crowd of fan girls until a con staff member asks me what line I'm looking for. So the line for Tara Strong is considerably smaller and I find out that I'm the only brony in a line full of parents with their kids. So I'm a bit embarrassed but I shuffle through the line and it turns out there's a separate line for people with VIP passes. So this one guy with a VIP pass starts coming up and shouting "Bubblelicious!" and telling Tara Strong that she is his childhood hero and I'm just standing there cringing. And then I find out that autographs are $30 bucks a pop (at Animazement I got a free voice actor autograph) and I'm a little miffed. But I shell out the 30 bucks (for another 20 I could've gotten my pic taken with her but I passed). So I get an autographed pic of Twilight Sparkle (her handwriting reads "Tara Sty" almost) and I'm pretty chill. To be fair, Tara Strong is a real good sport with the little kids, making them feel special. Also, she's a real sport about dealing with creepers, etc. (sorry but there are some toxic elements to the fandom). Anyways, rant over, here's a video with the proof showing of my MLP collection.
  18. When I first joined this forum website I just wanted to say hello to people in welcoming plaza. Unexpectedly lots of people greeted and welcomed me and they all really sent very sweet messages so I felt like a big herd family is incoming to my life. That is why I am so glad that people/ponies here treat others very kindly and respectfully. Finally, I found a place where I belong. Thank you for reading.
  19. Just got back from seeing the new movie with my best friend a little bit ago. We both really enjoyed it. There were only a few other people in the theater; it's likely a school night for kids so keeping them up late by taking them to the movies isn't something most parents are probably willing to do. I’m not familiar with earlier generations of the MLP franchise so I’m not sure if nostalgia would be a factor for old fans. If you are at all a fan of Friendship is Magic, then this movie is for you. There are a ton of little references to past episodes of the show to satisfy the dedicated fan: Fluttershy says many yays. Discord makes a tiny cameo early on (as well as during the end credits). Twilight’s Canterlot friends from Amending Fences briefly show up in one scene. We learn that Ursa Minor is the creature who originally robbed Tempest of her horn and left a scar on her face. And Fluttershy counsels one of the Storm King’s minions at the end (leaving them in tears), very reminiscent of some adorable moments in Season 1. Who knows, though? Perhaps a few people who aren’t familiar with MLP at all will go to see this movie. It doesn’t require you to be caught up with the show. But it rewards you if you are. I wish we could’ve seen more banter between some characters. The chemistry between Rarity and Capper seemed to be hinted at from some of the concept art I’ve seen, but they didn’t really interact much. I assumed most of the new characters would be clear counterparts of Spike and the Mane 6, but that wasn’t really the case apart from Twilight+Tempest and Rainbow Dash+Celaeno. Oh well. *shrug* I know, some people are undoubtedly going to call this fan service, but the Derpy scenes (first with the Wonderbolts, then getting in the way of Tempest’s magic) are adorable and I love the little cameo by Starlight and Trixie early on. I like the animation style a lot. Some scenes do look awkward with CGI thrown in for certain objects like the airships (or as Grubber says, boats in the air... air boats...). But the scenery is gorgeous and while character designs took getting used to, I was pretty much used to it by the end. Perhaps this style, just scaled down a bit in visual quality in order to cut production costs, would fit future seasons of FiM. I’m down for that. Let’s talk about the new characters… - The Storm King is an average villain and probably one of my least favorite pony villains. Not all that interesting, and he shows no development whatsoever. He doesn’t even get to escape so that one day he can return and once again raise hell in Equestria, nor is he reformed. Instead, his death is implied when his crystallized self falls and shatters. Kind of a boring outcome. Still, Liev Schreiber’s voice acting is good. He did a solid job. - Grubber is kind of a throwaway side character. I’m sorry if you’re a fan, but when he’s not randomly munching on sweets I think he’s often annoying and really doesn't need to be talking because I hardly found his little remarks funny. Maybe kids will like him, though. For some reason his design (which I do like) kinda looks like a gray Stitch with hair. - Captain Celaeno is a great counterpart for Rainbow Dash. They end up having great chemistry. Celaeno is a loyal captain to her crew who loves adventure. Her crew looks up to her and I like her design. - Queen Novo is pretty neat. She’s a stern, just ruler of her underwater nation who greatly values her family of hippogriffs/seaponies. Not too much to say about her, she doesn’t get all that much screen time. - Princess Skystar is very much a Dory sort of character. I wonder if that similarity was intentional. :ooh:Very excitable and almost like Pinkie Pie at some moments. Very cute seapony who clearly desires the magic of friendship but sadly has been locked away in the underwater depths without many true friends other than seashells. Fits the story well. - Capper is one of my favorite new characters. He’s a sly con artist who actually has a big heart, which becomes apparent when he realizes what will happen if he doesn’t help the ponies he betrayed. Taye Diggs has the perfect voice for Capper. Oh, and Capper has an awesome design... - Songbird Serenade doesn’t show up much but she looks adorable and fits in pretty well. Her song Rainbow is cute. I’ll elaborate more on it later. Of the three pony pop stars we have seen (Songbird, Coluratura/Rara, and Sapphire Shores) she’s the least well developed but I don’t really think she’s a weak character. - And finally, Tempest Shadow, the new character who most deserves to return in the regular series. Open Up Your Eyes is my favorite song in the whole movie. Tempest’s angsty backstory doesn’t come off as trite; it works for her character's role. And I guess I tend to enjoy fictional characters like that who have some depth. I only wish the Storm King was also like that. Now on to the songs… - We Got This is a nice opening song. It reminds me a lot of Morning In Ponyville. The song and the visuals do a satisfactory job of setting the stage. - I’m the Friend You Need is one of only two songs sung entirely by a single character. Taye Diggs/Capper has such a cool singing voice. Diggs is among my favorite musical actors, with lots of Broadway experience. -Time to Be Awesome is very fun. I listened to a clip (was it recorded at Bronycon? or Comic-con? I can’t remember) a few months ago and figured it would be extremely catchy. In that regard, it sure did deliver! Also, grumpy Twilight at the beginning is great. -One Small Thing is cute. What can I say? It helps give Princess Skystar some depth. Her heart truly hungers for friendship. Also, some of the most adorable visuals in the whole movie with the seaponies. Especially the little white seapony. He’s adorable. - Open Up Your Eyes, Tempest’s song addressed to Twilight, is fairly sad but powerful. I’m not sure any other song in the movie gives me such Disney vibes. And Emily Blunt sure can SING! I love the animation during the flashbacks. - And then comes Rainbow. Very catchy pop song by Sia. It’s not as gorgeous as Titanium but it’s fun enough to provide a satisfactory dance party ending scene with none other than—surprise, surprise—DJ Pon-3 playing the music. Kind of a cliché ending, but it’s fun and leads in to cute end credits. Overall… I’d give this movie a 7.5/10. Now that’s when judged in comparison to similar movies I’ve seen, not in comparison to Equestria Girls and episodes of FiM. By pony standards, I would go as far as bumping that rating up to an 8.5/10. It’s memorable enough that I will probably see it in theaters again. It isn't really structured like an episode, so it avoids feeling like an extended episode. The plot is cute, the animation is mostly appealing to the eye, the new characters are mostly fun, and overall it’s a real treat. Well done, Hasbro. Oh, and I almost forgot…
  20. Well, as thou can probably tell, the two-parter after Top Bolt I am not particularly satisfied with. So much so that I'm not going to bother looking up what its actual name is. But, hopefully, going over the episode before that, Top Bolt, shall cool me off a little. That's sort of the funny thing there. Admittedly, I've not touched the show in a good long while. Perhaps I'm a bit unused to it, rushing into perception maybe. I can't completely remember the other combinations the Cute Map has given the Main Six. But, as I look back with fuzzy memories as I watched Top Bolt, I thought to myself. Have the two sent mares always made the problem worse by interfering like they did in this episode? I mean, think about it. It was, indeed, mentioned that there would be solo tryouts for the new cadets for Wonderbolt academy. Does indeed make sense, that's something any school or training facility like this would do. Test every aspect just for cases like this where one pony is helping another. You know, something any competent teacher would likely catch. Raininator certainly caught on at what was happening because she'd been going through the same drills and exercises herself. Really don't think any actual organization would just let some random princess and employee just waltz in and loudly claim that they'll be taking over for the already preassigned teachers. But I can let that go, kids' show rules of reality, I suppose. Even if T.Sparks herself only learned to fly less then a year ago and would be a massive fault to put her in charge of those born with wings. But i'm just being pithy now. (Oh, and yes. From now until the end of my attention span... those two main mares shalt always be known... *drumroll* As T-Sparks & the Raininator!) My point there was, is that at some point, it would only be natural that Sky Stinger would have to preform on his own and back up his own claims. Really, likely far before this point... like in foalhood. Like... how in the name of logic did he even make it up to Wonderbolt Academy if the stallion can't even fly higher then twelve feet of his own strength? Really, it was shown that Vapor Trail was flying backwards in order to compensate for her partner in order to help him. Putting aside the scientific fact that most wings tend not to be biologically designed to rotate both ways, or indeed even the implied natural magic for such things. Putting aside even the fact that that effectively doubles Vapor's workload to the point where that should make her the single best natural flyer, by dint of practice. How does nopony notice that she's been doing this for almost a decade now? ESPECIALLY THE TARGET OF THESE EFFORTS?!!? Sorry... sorry, two-parter rage kinda spilling over there. Admitedly, I must say that Skyscourge is how you do an overconfident character. I mean, he does have results he can point to to back up his claims. Even that "Yeah, I know." was just so summarily put that it doesn't make you want to maul him like we often want to do with Rainosity Clash here. I mean... Raininator! Why, even in that training session he did with T.Sparks looked like he was truly buckling down once he noticed that he did seem to be having troubles doing it on his own. And, we certainly know T well enough to know she wouldn't just let a student immediately give up and go trotting to the teacher he does think befits his talents. If her neuroticism had anything to say about it anyway. But, the easiest solution to this whole episode would have just been them being the best friends those two ponies said they were. Vapor could had easily just said that she wasn't confident on doing on her own (which was clearly already a voiced concern by Sky) and indirectly suggest Sky do the same, and have the issue come up naturally, if she didn't want to just come out and admit that he'd been leaning on her this entire time. This whole episode didn't really need our two Main Mares. This whole episode boiled down to "Helping Helpers help the other Helpers they're already helping." But that arises a bigger issue, I feel. This episode debuted Vapor Trail, which apparently caught on in the fandom pretty well. I don't get it. She's a horrible character. Now, hear me out. She's a sweet & kind mare, I cannot argue that point! But, putting aside the fact that (Huh... I keep saying that... it's almost as if I'm being incredibly passive-aggressive manipulative here or something.) she and her foalhood coltfriend are clearly bait for us fandom shippers, she doesn't really exist on her own will. Almost everything about her exists by its relation to another character, Sky Stinger. She's helping him out... for almost her entire life, without any a word about it or acknowledgement, to even her own detriment. This seems strongly of an unhealthy relationship. At that, even a horrible ideal to tell your audience to live up to. ...Sigh. Of course, I'm over reacting there. ...I have... a bit of a history with helping others who never cared enough to ever acknowledge my contributions. It is most likely entirely my own opinion that its unhealthy to have your only driving force be helping others. I had a very, very strong feeling that Vapor only ever attended Wonderbolt Academy because Sky wanted to, and she had no other plans or will to do anything else of her own other then to keep propping up Sky to avoid having to deal with herself. In turn, Sky probably only came to the Wonderbolts because of the one mare that had believed in him. Maybe its just my own weird mind putting a dark tinge to things, but... I can only think of one catalyst that would make Vapor's parents be as protective & child-centeric, as was the excuse why she looked to concern herself with Sky's lot, ...past trauma. Oh, and one last thing. That little line of T-Sparks? Regarding the admonishment of Sky for, quote: being " content to take a backseat." That almost felt hurtful. That scene of him getting passed up in a family game of catch seemed awfully indicative of him always being the Sixth Wheel, being forever forced to be in the backseat. Like something like that kind of upbringing would lead a stallion to constantly think that he has to speak up and self-advertise... because nopony else will ever care enough to be on his side. Other then the one that has chosen to be by his side, for years even. Who just basically told him that their entire relationship up until now has been one big lie. Kinda expected a little more drama from that in that episode. ... Which. Ironically enough, runs contrary to what I happen to think about the Two-Parter.... *sound of grinding teeth* Well! Start off with the good parts, maybe! I loved that part about Luna coming in to mentor Starlight Glimmer! "I see much of myself in you, Starlight Glimmer..." Aye! You mean constant regret and depression that you can't live on without remembering? The nagging thoughts of having once been a major threat to the entirety of the free world, knowing full well you harmed other ponies and living on despite your dark past? Having a constant self-doubt into how you could relate to other ponies and get on with your life, knowing full well of what prior consequences had led to? A pretty much dark coat color scheme, a somewhat sparkly mane and, I'm pretty sure, stars in your cutie marks? HOO! SOME FODDER FOR THE FANDOM THEORISTS THERE! (Specifically, that this new generation of alicorns are being trained to replace Luna & Celestia someday.) But, onto the negative I suppose. ...Yes. That was pretty much only one solid, positive moment. Namely, in the field of questions I want answered is just one simple thing I feel ought be addressed. That... of... ... HOOOOOOWWWWW?!!? GOOD GRAVY! THE WRITING ON THIS WAS ATROCIOUS! Darkstone? Some randomly, just introduced element that has only just now came up? This mega powerful artifact that can somehow blanket wipe the all the power in a several mile radius (INCLUDING CHAOS MAGIC, WHICH BY DEFINITION SHOULD WORK WITHOUT BEING CONTROLLED!) has never been managed or been a concern to the Leaders of The Free World before now? This MacGuffin can somehow effect literally every being, likely assisted in the takedown of the entire world, was still somehow managed to be carved into a giant gothic throne and never left the pit it was wedged into. That can somehow manage to nullify a draconequus lord that has very likely outlived even the planet itself, has never been noticed before? What, did nopony ever lead a reconnaissance mission into this territory before, notice that the species that has proven to be hostile before somehow has a huge anti-magic field effect around their hideout and not think "Gee, maybe I ought report this back to Celestia & Luna..." Just... so much of this episode seemed focused around blatantly transparent ploys to cripple the forced protagonists and create drama. This is exactly why I don't watch live action shows, or indeed, pretty much only My Little Pony. Needless Drama. You can practically hear the writers go "Uhh... wait, we can't just have the Changelings literally take over everypony everywhere. There would be instantly nopony to oppose them, and no reason to make an episode about it." "Well, there's Discord. He's not a pony." "Yeah, but he could just snap a finger & blow them all up into confetti or something." "Oh! I know! Have all magic be useless!" They neutered Discord for this. Or, at least, completely forgot his character was already a solve-all. Magic doesn't work within two miles of the place? Oh, I dunno, Keep dropping stuff on them from miles away until they give up? Or, maybe... I dunno. Actually know your friends will enough to notice when they're acting strange? Good grief, the changelings that took over the places of the Main Six were horrible actors. That's kind of why you don't ever see the "Shapeshifters replacing everybody you know" trope. Because it can't possibly work. You know how The Invasion of the Body-Snatchers did it? Because they gave their victims only a minute to react. "Oh, dude, you sure are acting strange today..." "IT IS BECAUSE HOUSE MESS IS. PLEASE DO LOOK INSIDE TO SEE WHY PROBLEM IS." "Well... sure... I suppose just a quick poke of my head inside won-" *instantly grabbed by alien tentacle. You know what the problem with trying to impersonate somepony, especially those well known is? No one being could ever know every intricacy of the personality & mind of those they're replacing. Such as Pinkie Pie ever... ever, forgetting someponies name. You don't think Pinkie, at the least of them has contacts with every single member of this town? You don't think any one of these victims won't scream for bloody murder, causing the neighbors to become alarmed? These Changelings barely even bothered to not raise suspicious. Heck! At one point, they KNEW nopony else was around, and were just fooling around in a chamber disguised when they didn't need to! SOMEBODY! PLEASE! EXPLAIN TO ME HOW! How in Equestria, did one tribe of Changelings, who have been shown already failing spectacularly to claim just ONE city before, SOMEHOW managed, in the span of barely, at most, three days, to completely overpower THREE ENTIRE KINGDOMS, AND FOUR LEADERS OF GREAT MAGICAL POWER?! Really, how? How do you claim one, without alerting the others when Canterlot was already so hard as to require spy tactics and ambushing & mind controlling the leaders. We won't ever get an answer for that, will we? Just a "Well, they already won, so here's all the drama in how they got taken down. Drama." We keep having that happen in this show. Just wave away any other solution that might solve the problem, so we have a main character to deal with it. Celestia & Luna have held responsibility over this realm for over a thousand years, but these days they just hand down threats? We have the Crystal Kingdom, a Two Leader matriarchy in Canterlot, and SIX competent protectors in Ponyville. If ANY of those pieces fall, it brings down the hammer of the other two, equally important pieces on this board! The only way the Changelings plan could have worked, is if they somehow simultaneously infiltrated all six strongholds, with each their own personalized strategies, all at the same time. Gosh, I don't know much about past wars and military tactics, but what does history say about attempting to simultaneously taking on all of the rest of the world on all at once when they have the higher population numbers? And how did they deal with Chrysalis? You know, after she got done monologuing & spouting threats like the flanderized villainess she is now? The same way we always do. Talk about how its wrong, and spew friendship speeches again. I still remember that scene. Thorax has stumbled on the fact that he has found a better way to feed, Queenie doesn't believe him, so she threatens him. Starlight's plan... is to give her all the love while she's in the process of already draining his love. Oh, btw. Appearently Changelings can feed off other Changelings. One would think biology doesn't work that way, or would point towards a possibility of them just sorta feeding themselves, but no. Guess "drain love" is just a stock threat we can use now that has no bearing on what the magic involved does. Despite this entire race being formed around that feeding magic. This, of course, is another thing I want explained to me. Does that not boil down to: "I'M GOING TO SHOOT HIM UNTIL HE BLEEDS!" "AGH! NO! QUICK THORAX! BLEED ALL OVER HER BEFORE SHE MAKES YOU BLEED ANYMORE!" I don't get it. So too, was that line about the hive constantly shifting, that only changelings could navigate what seemed chaotic. Yeah. Neat. Sure is useful in expediting yet more drama. Nor do I understand how then, does his body decide to reform itself. Or why a cocoon is relevant to that. Because, you know, the point of a cocoon in nature is to protect the defenseless creature inside. Which, making yourself vulnerable mid-battle & mid-climax, is kind of a stupid thing to do, even if you've blown your enemy back a few steps. Oh, and apparently... despite this "sharing of love" effects having shown a slow build in Thorax, having affected his hunger and his wings slowly enough for him to only passingly know of the effects and those same effects still, as yet, being minor enough... now, suddenly every single other changeling that does the same action INSTANTLY transform. Oh, and the one guy that did it first gets a bigger, showier after affect that marks him as being special. Oh... wait... I forgot. It's magic. WE DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT. The whole thing wrapped up so quickly. Like, seriously, somebrony time that. There's no repairs to make after the world domination, nopony wants to immediately hunt down the Queen that just claimed revenge and has clearly shown herself capable of being a threat, there wasn't one single changeling that resisted the regime change and thought about it a bit more like any other sentient being would. Just a brushing off of the hands, because jobs done and we don't have to think about it anymore. I hated 28 Pranks Later for how it warped a character to fit what the story needed. Warped even the environment and personality of background characters just so everything could center around what it wanted to accomplish. A Mary Sue/Gary Stu is the term for a character that forces everything else to how it relates to them. So what then is a story that defies everything else to force it to do what the story wants it to do? This was all Prefabricated Drama. The worst thing any story or show can do, In my opinion... nay, any idea or concept... is to be Predictable. Oh, something happens, who's left has to fufill the role of being the hero now, they get there, what they had previously depended on is proved to not be as reliable anymore, they confront villain, say they're holier... I mean "Gooder" which makes them win. Everybody involved laughs about it. More episodes like this two-parter... and I'll have to leave the fandom entirely. If only because it would become something I can no longer enjoy. I can't care if there isn't any unpredictability. Characters that are foremost themselves & their own living, growing experiences instead of just being what the current story dictates they be. Well... I suppose that still shows up. Trixie showing herself as more of a coward when she has to actually combat a threat and admitting she isn't really anything special. Discord getting them in trouble for shouting about himself at the wrong time & being too readily dismissable of threat when he usually has too much power to be concerned about anything. Starlight's usual troubles with her social anxiety & depression. Thorax being even less of a useful figure & spineless as he was pretty much raised to be. There's still depth... but still that notion that the writers don't want to try for what amounts to a Kids' Show... Yeah... while it had more good points then 28 Pranks later, which I can only ever see as hateful & stupid, To Where & Back Again is certifiably the worst episode ever in my book. (Oh... Oh, I see what you did there Hasbro. Equated the title to a well known book that became a well-known movie recently. Despite the stories having nothing but a mountain in common & unlikely heros. Almost as if you were grasping for attention.) Bleh. I've got a bad taste in my mouth now. I need me a pancake. ...maybe I can bake some Sake into one...
  21. 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?

    Furry discussion thread

    Moderator note: To minimise the number of repeat discussions regarding the Furry fandom, this thread can be used to discuss all aspects of the Furry Fandom - whether that be with respect to the Brony fandom, or the Furry fandom on its own. This thread is for discussion of all furry related things. (SFW obviously) A few starter questions: What furry artists do you follow? (Like on Deviantart, Furaffinity, Tumblr, etc.) What furry series do you follow? (Webcomics? TV? Fictions?) What's your favorite type of furry? (Mammal? Reptile? Avian?) Do you like when non-anthropomorphic characters are turned into furries? (No right or wrong answer here!) What is your opinion on the notion that bronies and furries are one and the same? (Once again, no right or wrong answer) What do you think of anthropomorphic versions of MLP characters? Remember that not all furry related material is of a sexual nature, characters like Bugs Bunny and Sonic the Hedgehog are indeed furries and there's nothing sexual about them, so let's get some variety in here! I don't think there's any particular problem with showing something a little risque, and as far as I know it doesn't go against the rules of the site, but absolutely no NSFW images as they are against the site rules. Any NSFW discussion should be taken into personal conversation elsewhere. NOTICE: This topic is for furries, by a furry (myself). If you are uncomfortable talking about or with furries then please kindly leave the topic. We want no flame wars or trolling here and we are not intentionally trying to cause discomfort. Also, this is not an RP thread. Keep all Roleplaying in it's respective board. Now to answer some of the starter questions myself to get some conversation going! I follow a lot of furry artists; some for their furry work, some for other reasons and the fact that they are furry artists is just a coincidence. I'm not gonna bother trying to name them all but some of the ones I follow are: Blacksen, BleachedKitten, Jolly Jack (Philip M. Jackson), Jay Naylor and Slugbox. Some of these you might have heard or or follow yourself. I haven't seen a lot of activity from Blacksen or BleachKitten lately but I follow Jolly Jack and Jay Naylor's webcomics religiously. As for Slugbox I go on his Tumblr every once in a while for his pony art and sometimes his really funny reblogs. I am a webcomic maniac so I follow quite a few furry webcomics (usually find them through ads but I find them nonetheless lol) A few furry webcomics I read (And definitely recommend for any who wanna check them out) are: Better Days/Original Life Better Days comes before Original Life. Both done by Jay Naylor Unlike Minerva/You Say It First Unlike Minerva came first and jumped from artist to artist before it settled on Isabelle which continued on through You Say It First and still going strong Pretty much everything on There is a group of artists that came together and created this wonderful site that hosts a small group of webcomics (drawn by said various artists) each one of them furry webcomics. I have yet to read Draconia Chronicles or The Eye of Ramalach but I absolutely love Las Lindas and the recently added Yosh! Catena Manor This webcomic is hilarious and though it's artstyle gets gradually less realistic over time it seems to be better that way anyway in my opinion. It's been on hiatus for over a year now I think. They are doing a redesign of the series so anything in the past comics will not relate directly to whatever they do next. The artist has been keeping herself busy with other projects though. VG Cats Here's one many people will likely know. VG Cats is popular not for being a furry comic but for being a video game comic. That should be good for now. There's many more but I'd like to leave some for others to talk about! I don't wanna be the only one talking here. I don't particularly have any preference on what type of furry I like but the one thing I don't appreciate is when furries look too human. And I mean this in the sense where they have realistically shaped human faces where it looks like someone just painted their face to look like a cheetah or something. I find those particular kinds of furries ugly as sin. I prefer them to have a more anime/cartoony air to them. Of course I love when non-furry characters are turned into furries, that includes ponies, and generally they are some of the best kinds of furries imo. Furry pokemon are fun, for example. I don't believe at all that bronies and furries are exclusively the same thing. That doesn't mean one can't be a furry when they are a brony or vice versa, just that being one does not automatically label a person as the other as well. They are very different fandoms that have very different focal points. Phew, took a while to type this up. Let's hope it was worth it and this topic doesn't get buried! xD
  23. I want to know what you all thing of this story. It is a possible history and I really want to know if I can do something better or something I haven't really thought of or important parts I've missed. I would really appreciate a few compliments and critics. A Great Nation, called Girok, was ruled by 13 tribes. Each tribe had there own talents and weaknesses and they cared for each other. This alicorns listened to the council, which were the gods of Space, Time, Life and Balance. Their was Respect, Order and Safety for the ponies. But all that changed when the alicorns thought the draconequusses came to invade the city of Cindale, the capital of Hyra, a province of Girok, in the year _____ before Eq. The alicorns and the draconequusses where enemies since the war of Davilus, when the two species could not agree about who was going to stay in Cindale. The draconequusses where defeated after a long battle, but they swore revenge upon that they would claim Cindale and now they were back. 6 of the 13 tribes thought they had to attack, in order to protect their citizens and their cities, but the council didn't agree, because the council felt like this was not the right thing to do. 3 of the 6 tribes didn't listen to the council and in order to protect the citizens, they set of to attack the draconequusses. The draconequusses were ambushed. Almost all died in the battle and the ones who fled away were hunted and killed later. Their leader was the only one who was left. His name was Discord, the warrior of disharmony. He was furious and depressed. The gods had mercy with him, so they'll gave him strong magical abilities. But Discord began to use his immense power to manipulate and kill other creatures. He created a specie, which are now called dragons. They were actually a failure because of their lack of loyalty and their only desire for treasure. His power was so great that the gods couldn't bring him down. When they tried to take his power away, he set two terrible curses. He cursed a couple of unicorns who turned into windigo's, which stole joy and feed of it and with his second curse he used the shadows of those unicorns to create Umbrum's. With there spirits and shadows gone, the body's stayed behind, but because they didn't really die they began to live. They began to mutate. Their skin became darker, they became smaller and they got wings. The first changelings had been born.When the gods heard of his crimes against those ponies, they locked him up in a prison deep inside the earth, which now is called Tartarrus. He could only be freed by two Alicorns, who where actually living sacrefices, because they have to be locked away instead. He was patiencedly waiting to escape. When the tribes were back in Cindale in the year ______ before Eq, the council punished the 3 clans. The citizens of Hyra, who had killed the most draconequusses, had lost there wings, horns and a large amount of magic. Then came the citizens of Beleria, a clan which also had big problems before with the draconequusses, who were the ones who had denied the advice of the council and convinced the others to go, lost there horns and there magic. And the third tribe, who just joined without considering the concequenses, had lost there wings and much amount of magic. They were banished to the place where they killed all the draconequusses, but they were heavily jealous at each other. The earth ponies had no magic anymore and were bound to the ground, while the unicorns had magic and the pegasi could fly. The unicorns on the other hoof felt betrayed, because they thought it wasn't really there fault. The pegasi were not pleased with the behavior of the unicorn and pegasi and became angry about it and so they lived on like that for centuries. And with the lost of magic, they lived not as long as before. When the leaders past away, so did the stories of the great alicorn Civilization. There were problems in the following millenia and an alicorn, named Starswirl, was send by the gods in _______ before Eq to get rid of the jealousy. The sirens were his first task to get the trust of the ponies and he banished them. The unicorns trusted him after that and he got a student named Clover the Clever. There was finally peace between the tribes, but they still didn't trust each other. This lasted till Swarswirl was ambushed and murdered a couple years later by Lord Tirek. He had came to steal Equestrian magic and Starswirl knew it because Scorpan was confinced by Starswirl that this was not the right way. After a long battle Starswirl had lost his magic and was killed. Scorpan on the other hand was alarming the unicorns. They were to late to help Starswirl, but with Tirek tired and weak, they could easily throw him in jail. They asked the gods if they could lock him up in Tartarus. They agreed and made an entrance with a safekeeper. But with a gate to Tartarus, it is easier to escape. For the first time in almost 5000 years the unicorns, pegasi and earth ponies were together talking to each other about their hero. Out of Starswirls body came a tree. This tree was made from pure starlight and friendship, which Starswirl wanted to bring to the ponies. They say that Starswirl's spirit never went to the next live, but still is looking upon his tree. But right after the death of Starswirl the clans began to argue again. And because Starswirl wasn't their to stop them, it became worse and worse, and if that wasn't bad enough, it slowly began to freeze. In the beginning no pony ever had problems with it. But after a couple of years the land became more and more a wintery landscape. The windigo's had come, giving problems and sadness. It was Clover's destiny to defeat them. Starswirl had known it and predicted it. You know the storie of Clover, so I don't going to spoil it here. It was here that Equestria was made. In the year ____ , Discord had been locked up for hundreds of years and wanted to get out to spread chaos and take his revenge on the ponies who had killed his family and friends. But he was smart. He had plans to free himself and he was in luck. In Equestria were stories about him. Scary stories and rumors that he will pop up to inslave everybody. A young unicorn named Celestia was worried about her younger sister, because she didn't eat, didn't sleep, had a lot of pain and it became worse. Nobody could or wanted to help her. Her parents had left her and she was alone without money. When Celestia heard about Discord, she immediately went to see him. Discord tried to trick her, by offering a deal. He said she and Luna would became alicorns, so Luna would survive, but in return he would be freed by her. She agreed and Luna and Celestia freed Discord and were locked up in that prison. The council knew they were tricked, so Celestia and Luna were freed. It was the councils plan to let Discord free, in order to redeem him. The gods helped Celestia and Luna recover and set them on a path to defeat Discord. The gods told the sisters that they need to look for a tree, which was planted long time ago, when the land needed to recover from a great and dark battle. It contained the elements of harmony. They found it and used it to defeat Discord, which turned him to stone. Luna and Celestia ruled the land of Equestria together. Celestia stayed in Canterlot, while Luna was mostly in her own castle on the north of Equestria. Here they kept a strong artifact, the crystal heart, but Luna became jelous of Celestia and wanted to be in Canterlot instead, because she thought she get a lot more reconition there. Amore Éros became the new mayor of the Crystal Empire. Many called her Princess Amore, but she wasn't really a princess and when Sombra was hungry for power, he turned her to stone and spread all fragments around Equestria. Each fragement was posessed by a strong dark magic. The changelings found a piece and because it was a changeling who touched it first it only allowed changeling magic. There was only one problem with it. Each fragment was to weak to really suck up magic, but all together they were very powerfull, so the changelings found all and cast a spell to make a throne out of it, which now protected their hive. Celestia and Luna came to stop Sombra. They defeated him after a heavy battle. Celestia was first strucked out of the sky and when Sombra tried to kill her, Luna came from behind and banished him in his own horn. Sombra cursed the empire and the sisters had to run for their life to escape the sinking empire. In canterlot their began to be stories about how great Celestia had fought. Luna became more and more jelous by day as her sister got more and more love from the ponies, prasing her because she was so brave and Celestia forgot to give credit to Luna. Luna wanted revenge, turned herself into Nightmare Moon and attacked, but she was banished to moon. Celestia made regrets to herself for not noticing Luna's pain and disappointment, but because she now was alone to protect Equestria, she thought of ways to keep the ponies save. She opened her school for high giveded unicorns to make stronger pony's. She searched for successers too and with her first one she was very proud. Cadence had officially became her prize pupil, but she came later then hoped. For almost 1000 year she had been hoping for Cadence and now the time was there. Cadence became the first artificial alicorn. But Celestia already was busy with a second one, but because Celestia was in a hurry, Sunset became very arrogant and selfish and when she had gone, Twilight took her place. Her goes the show further to the present.
