  1. Anyone have a favorite season? Mine is autumn! Autumn to me is Frank Sinatra and the smell of rain, hot chocolate with cinnamon sticks, doggy snuggles, tart honey-crisp apples, candied pecans, the anticipation of Christmas, crunching leaves on walks, the smell of chili in the crock-pot on Sundays, the chill in the air that wakes you up in the morning, fuzzy socks and long sleeves, blankets freshly warm out of the dryer, hot pancakes on Saturday mornings drowning in maple syrup, foggy sunrises, cozy sweaters, decorating my desk with baby pumpkins and gourds, poetry, beeswax candles, skinny jeans and boots with leg warmers, pumpkin bread, rereading Harry Potter, swings and bike rides looking up at the changing tree stars, cinnamon rolls, tea, and apple cider. I just love it so much! :3
  2. Of spring, summer, autumn, and winter, which season do you like the most? (The hype with FiM's seasons 4 and 5 inspired me to do this question. If you're asking me, mine is winter.)
  3. For those of you who celebrate it, of course. What are your plans? What do you usually do every Easter? Have any special Easter traditions? Me, I typically spend Easter Sunday at home with my immediate family members. We wake up to a surprise of candy and other goodies in the morning (yes, I don’t care how old I am!) then later on in the day we dye eggs and then have a little Easter egg hunt (again, you’re never too old for an Easter egg hunt!) just the six of us (me, my three siblings, and my parents..although sometimes my dad can’t always make it) in our backyard. We usually have a “family movie night” the night before Easter or sometimes the night OF Easter. And something special about this particular Easter, I went out for a little Sunday drive with my brothers and we got Slushees from a gas station. It was so much fun, I do believe it’s our new Easter tradition!
  4. Hey y'all! Since I'm on spring break I've had a good bit of extra time on my hands, so I spent some of that time on making pony drawings, I drew both of these well actually I drew part of the first one a while back, and finished it yesterday, and I drew the other one yesterday. I guess without further ado I'll go ahead and show you them . This one is just my attempt at trying to make a pony drawing with a open mouth, it still looks off to me though, I really can't find out why.. :/. Gonna need some help with this maybe, or just alot of practice. This one was just a upper body and face shot really, I just wanted to see how it'd turn out, I was actually thinking of experimenting with it and making it an avatar, but I'm not sure how great it'd be really. Like always both are drawn with GIMP, using my mouse(M705 Logitech .) I'll be honest that I really haven't been drawing ponies at all in a long while, but I do wanna get back to doing some. I also need to start working on doing more advanced things that aren't just standard shots. I plan on trying different expressions and different hoof motions, aswell as different backgrounds. That look better of course. And I'm also possibly going to be making another OC to be a partner for this OC possibly, but I haven't decided if I am or not, and I haven't decided on a color scheme for her yet anyways. So I guess thats about it for now, as always I'm happy to hear critique on my drawings so I can try and improve them and stop making similar mistakes over and over, and improve. I'm also open to if you want to suggest any ideas maybe for a drawing you think I should try or maybe something i should practice. Any tips are also appreciated, even better if you take the time to maybe even provide some form of reference or resource or something to help me. I have some ideas for drawings maybe, but I guess my problem is going to be visualizing them well enough to draw them. Guess I'll see, I'm gonna try and get some kinda drawing done atleast one before I go back to school! And I also wanna try and get more into doing pony drawings more frequently again so we'll see how that goes. Later y'all!
  5. It's easy to forget to acknowledge the passage of time in a children's cartoon, especially one that airs on a weekly basis. Every week, you come back, there's a new episode, and you assume that you pick up where you left off. However, this has to be far from the truth... or at least it was initially. In the first 2 seasons of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, there was a distinct change of seasons, marked by some rather important episodes, but things were a bit awkward at first. Let's take a look at Season 1. ~Season 1~ For starters, I'd like to put forth the notion that the Summer Sun Celebration isn't actually the first day of Summer, but is in-fact, a mid-season celebration. This allows the events of Episode 4 - “Applebuck Season” to make a little more sense. Given that Applebuck Season is the Equestrian equivalent of Harvest Season, and that there are a wide variety of apples, some of which come into season during late summer and some not until mid or late autumn, we can build on this and say that the episode was most likely the beginning of the harvest season, and not a rush-job placed near the end. However, in Episode 11, it's clear that we've skipped a bit of time. We've worked our way not only through Summer and Autumn, but also through WINTER, as this episode is entitled: Winter Wrap-Up. Now part of me finds it difficult to believe that there's such and abundance of snow on the ground when Fluttershy was picking flowers just an episode earlier, before Celestia's estimated arrival in Swarm of the Century. However, I am willing to accept that Applejack was in the process of storing her cart of Apples for the winter when they got devoured by the Parasprite swarm, and not hauling them off to market as it may have appeared. Many times in Winter Wrap Up it's noted that Winter is now finally ending, and it's everypony's job to usher in Spring. Heck, we even sang a whole song about it! The song specifically mentions that it's been Winter for 3 months, everypony has been keeping their “hoovsies” warm at home, the food stored is running out and Rarity is tired of boots, EVEN THOUGH it's only been a week since Swarm of the Century aired where there were clearly no boots, nopony staying home, and no awesome holidays. Either way, if we take this all into account, We've still got a pretty coherent timeline from the Summer Sun Celebration (Season 1, Episodes 1 and 2) through Winter Wrap Up (Season 1 Episode 11). BUT, things get INCREDIBLY awkward when we approach Episode 13 - Fall Weather Friends, where Rainbow Dash and Applejack race each other during the Running of the Leaves, and AUTUMN tradition! This bizarre timeline implies that shortly after cleaning up Winter, and bringing about the Spring season, Autumn AGAIN reared it's ugly head. It's evident that this isn't just a freak occurrence, since most of the trees in the back drops, as well as during the running, all have leaves that have changed to Fall colors. In fact, the entire town of Ponyville seems to be painted in red, yellow and brown hues. Pinkie even specifically states that without the Run, the Autumn leaves of Equestria would never Fall. This is in stark contrast to a mere two episodes ago, where Twilight mentions that Winter Wrap Up is the first day of Spring! But what if Fall Weather Friends was meant to be aired before Winter Wrap Up? This is actually the best explanation as to why the Equestrian seasons are such a clusterbuck, and the best way to explain this is to look at the air dates. When Friendship is Magic premiered in October, Summer in North America had already came and went and we were clearly in the middle of our Autumn season. However, a cartoon is not bound to our Earthly seasons and had no reason to reflect our weather here. Unless there was a clever marketing reason. Like say, a holiday season that compels friends and family to purchase an absurd amount of gifts for each other? As we proceed on a week by week basis after the season went into full swing, there's something to be said for the sudden change of Ponyville's weather. Winter Wrap Up originally aired the day CHRISTMAS EVE, and may have been an attempt by the studio or the broadcast company to give viewers somewhat of a holiday or seasonal special. It wasn't until Season 2 that the writers delivered actual pony holidays like Hearth's Warming Eve and Hearts and Hooves day, which aired as close as possible to their respective holidays. Since entire seasons are usually written, filmed and shipped together, instead of being sent off episode by episode, it's not beyond the realm of possibility that Winter Wrap Up wasn't intended to air for another couple of weeks. Though, unfortunately I can't offer a logical explanation for why the ground wouldn't be covered in snow during the events of Episode 12 – Call of the Cutie, or in literally any other Episode in Season 1. The only thing that seems to conflict this theory is that in Winter Wrap Up, most of the trees in the background seem to still have all of their leaves, even when covered in snow. However, I'm going to chalk this up to laziness in animation, and a desire to merely recolor the background, instead of redraw the whole thing for seasonal accuracy. Now, if we swap Fall Weather Friends and Winter Wrap Up on the timeline, we have possibly one of the best representations of a year on the Equestrian timeline, assuming that our years correspond to their years, and their seasons mark the passage of roughly a quarter of the year. Though I have to say that I do find it intriguing that Celestia sends out invitations to The Grand Galloping Gala shortly after the Summer Sun Celebration, but that we've effectively worn through at least 3 seasons before the Mane 6 actually attend! Even if we leave the airing order alone, and assume that Equestrian seasons occur in the order of Summer, Winter and then Autumn, this means that it's probably roughly Spring by the time Twilight and her friends actually get to go to the ball. I think it's fair to assume that even though only 8 months passed in our world, the ponies completed the rough equivalent of a year. Some minor stumbling blocks were encountered, but lets take a look at how those were fixed. ~Season 2~ I feel that it's worth noting that the writers and broadcast company actually did a significantly better job at lining up episodes with North American holidays in Season 2. Luna Eclipsed aired roughly a week before Halloween, Hearth's Warming Eve was aired the week before Christmas Eve, and while we wouldn't receive a new episode MLP after that until the New Year, and Hearts and Hooves Day landed right on the weekend right before Valentine's Day. Season 2 performed much more admirably in it's display of the passage of time. However it's also the LAST time this mirror of seasons and holidays was attempted. Moving forward through Seasons 3, 4 and 5, no further holidays were added, and none were revisited. Instead, we're treated to major events like The Equestria Games, and to a lesser extent, the Apple Family Reunion, and a second Grand Galloping Gala. Wait... a second Grand Galloping Gala? When Twilight first receives the tickets in The Ticket Master, Rainbow Dash is quick to mention that the Wonderbolts perform at the Gala “every year”. For someone who's as big a fan of the Wonderbolts as Rainbow Dash, it's hard to believe she'd miss a Gala. In fact, with the Mane 6 being Celestia's right hand, it's hard to believe the girls wouldn't all be receiving invitations on the regular. Now, it's quite possible that the Grand Galloping Gala had been stalled by a number of other events. There was that whole business about Discord, Shining Armor almost married a bug, but then didn't and married an Alicorn, who then became the Princess of the Crystal Empire that had vanished a thousand years ago that they had to go and save. Oh, and don't forget that part where Twilight became an Alicorn, and then later had to save all of Equestria from Tirek the evil Centaur-Demon. However, I'd like to point out that during Make New Friends but Keep Discord, Fluttershy mentions that she met her new friend, Tree Hugger, on a trip to see the Breezies. You remember, the hideous butterfly creatures that serve absolutely no purpose what-so-ever in that obnoxious episode from Season 4? This feels like a subtle nod to the fact that there are plenty of events occurring with the Mane 6 outside of what gets aired on the show. MLP isn't a reality series where cameras follow everypony through their every day lives. It's only natural that there are events that happen off camera. With this in mind, I think it's safe to assume that the girls have been to more than one Gala, and that the rest weren't televised. This idea that not every little bit of daily life shows up on the TV show is a great way to promote side-stories and character development through other media such as books and comics. All in all, I think that the story-telling in Friendship is Magic has come a long way from it's humble beginnings, where seasons where sort of tossed wherever and whenever the writers felt like they could use it to make a point, to mimicking North American holidays, to just sort of being outright abandoned. New Idea: Throw away everything I JUST said. On October 24th, 2015 we're getting a return to Hearth's Warming Eve. The following week, the morning of Halloween, we're getting another Nightmare Night episode. This basically means one of two things: 1) I'm correct, and the season is being broadcast out of order AGAIN, for the sake of coinciding with a holiday, -OR- 2) Equestrian seasons really do occur in the order of Summer, Winter, Fall, Spring. Except this too isn't possible because Spring comes after Winter in Winter Wrap-Up and UUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH... Who's right? YOU decide. Let me know how you feel about seasons and holidays in MLP and what your take on the airing order is.
  6. Good afternoon, bronies and pegasisters of MLP Forums. I don't know how spring is shaping up for the rest of you, but right now here in the grand ol' state of Michigan, things are simply lovely! The sun is shining, birds are chirping their lovely songs, and new life is all around us, in more ways than one, I might add. After all, we are in the midst of a still recently-started new season of MLP, one that is shaping up so far to be rather splendid indeed. With all that said, I'd say it's high time we had a new fanfiction contest to celebrate this new season of MLP, hosted, as always, by the Poniverse Fimfiction group. Unlike our previous fanfic contests, however, this one will NOT have a holiday theme, or even a seasonal theme. No, rather, the Poniverse Spring Has Sprung Contest will have a show-centric theme, in particular, one focused on a major theme of Season 5: cutie marks! Yes, that's right, cutie marks! Below, you'll find everything that you need to know: (1) Seeing as cutie marks seem to be a major theme of MLP this season, all entries must relate to cutie marks in some manner, whether they be comedy, slice of life, romance, horror, adventure, or some other genre. It can be about somepony getting their cutie mark, the meaning of a cutie mark, the cutie mark and one's self-identity, how cutie marks may relate to romance in Equestria, the role they've played in Equestria's history or the lives of major figures like the princesses, whatever, as long as cutie marks are involved in some way, your fic will qualify for our contest. (2) Entries should be no longer than 20,000 words. We'd prefer that all entries be one-shot fics, but if the author requires multiple chapters for their fic, that's fine, so long as the fic does not exceed 20,000 words and is complete upon entry. (3) Entries cannot exceed a Teen rating. We will not accept any Mature rated fics, whether they be Gore fics, Slash fics, Clop fics, etc. That's not to say that you can't enter scary or even sensual (to a certain extent) fics, but our group has a strict policy of not accepting Mature rated fics. If any Mature rated fics are entered, we will not read or review them. (4) Fics can be submitted to the contest in the folder titled "Spring Has Sprung Contest Entries". (5) Contestants can enter no more than 1 submission of their own work (and please, do not enter any other author's work into the contest, even if you're doing it for them; if they'd like to enter the contest, they can do so themselves). (6) Entries will be accepted until May 31; after that date, we will accept no new submissions. UPDATE: Due to a large number of potential contest entrants having very busy schedules at the moment, the Spring Has Sprung Contest timeline for entering will be extended by two weeks. The new deadline for entry is now Sunday, June 14, 2015. We hope to announce the contest winners in the beginning or middle of June, although that time-slot may change depending on whatever real life demands may arise in the next month. The fics that come in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will be featured on our Fimfiction group, MLP Forums, and the Poniverse Newsletter, along with reviews published for each one. In addition, 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place will all receive a free art commission by the artists Midnight Scribbler (deviantART account ID: soultrip69), Smash-N-Dash, and SFyr (deviantART account ID: SapphireFyr). The 1st place piece will be a 1-2 character full art piece with a basic background by Midnight Scribbler, and may be whatever the 1st place winner desires, whether it be cover art for a fic, or just art of an OC. The 2nd place piece will be a 1-2 character piece with a basic background by Smash-N-Dash. The third place piece will be specified at a later date once SFyr has determined the extent of what he's willing to do, but rest assured 3rd place will receive an art piece no matter what. Check out some of Midnight Scribbler, Smash-N-Dash, and SFyr's lovely art on their deviantART pages by clicking on the links above! We hope you all enjoy this contest as much as the last one, and hope to see some wonderful entries that help us to usher in both spring and the new season of MLP! So get to it writers, and show us what you've got up your sleeves! I'm sure many of you have some very interesting things to write about cutie marks, and can't wait to see your ideas in action. If you have any questions about the contest, do not hesitate to post them here or to PM me, and feel free to share this contest prompt with any friends of yours here on MLP Forums, Fimfiction, or any other pony site you can think of! Have a pleasant day, everypony, and happy writing one and all! Update: A quick reminder to everypony entering the contest; if you're not a member of our Poniverse Fimfic group yet, please do join it when you enter the contest. We're always trying to expand our group's numbers, and every new member counts.
  7. Ah yes, Spring is slowly approaching. Almost done with the brisk cold of winter and to the calmer, warming up of Spring. Now in case you haven't figured out yet, Spring is my favorite season. I have my reasons that will care to explain why this season is so special to me compared to the others. For starters, Spring comes right after Winter. Now this might not seem like a good reason but let me explain, Winter is my least favorite. In fact, I hate Winter. It's too cold for me to handle being outside, it gets dark really early, and it feels like this season drags because sometimes, the snow will carry on into the beginning of Spring (I live in Illinois so that's the reason). So when spring hits, it gives me relief that Winter is over and it can finally get warmer. Another reason is that it feels like all the stuff involving me happens in Spring. First off my birthday is in "Spring (April 3rd by the way) so that's one thing I can always look forward to. Also, I became a brony in the beginning of Spring. As of writing this, my bronyversery is next week so yeah. Finally, I joined the forums in Spring which I'm still using to this day. So Spring just feels like a long holiday to me. Finally, it's the perfect balance of weather. It's not so hot that we have to leave the windows open and the fans on and not too cold where I have to stand in below zero weather at the bus stop at 6:30 in the morning. It's got the nice and warm feeling of summer, mixed with a nice breeze leftover from Winter leaving me to just want to prance around outside or take a nice walk. So this is why Spring is so special to me. Well the runny nose caused by seasonal change and me just not caring about school anymore are flaws, I can still enjoy this season from beginning to end.
  8. Spring anime starts next week I've already decided what I'll be watching. -Gunslinger -Ghost in the Shell: Arise -Plastic Memories I'm watching Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex in preparation for the extended Arise series. What will you be watching this Spring? Release chart for reference: https://livechart.me/spring
  9. Yes it is finally that time of the year, the first day of Spring (at least in the northern hemisphere that is). I've already explained why Spring is my favorite season but in case you haven't seen it check it out here Ah yes Spring, the time where I can finally go outside without freezing to death, the time of my birthday and the time of seeing nature make it's full force back. It's so wonderful. What are your favorite stuff about Spring? Discuss away!
  10. That's right; it's Daylight Savings Time Everybody and Every-Pony. As we're enjoying this beautiful morning, remember to turn your clocks ahead one hour. Spring Forward Every-Pony: http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131215033351/mylittleponyccg/images/e/e0/Premiere_061.jpg
  11. WOOOO! Finally my parents have battled through the harsh mid winter "spring weather" and I will be going home tomorrow from university! I actually can't wait I'm so excited it's amazing what 3 days away from your family (despite being away from them for 10 weeks already) will do to you when you expected to be able to see them so much sooner! For the first time in my life I actually think that I dislike snow, I always used to pray for more and more hoping for snow days off school and sledging. But this year it's been a hindrance to my plans! (evil cackle). In other news, I've also started looking to upgrade my computer ! I'm as bad as Rarity at the moment, fussing over every little detail and trying to squeeze as much as I can out of my budget. It doesn't help that I'm easily distracted by flashing lights and suddenly thought it a necessity to have a window and LED's, despite most likely having my computer under my desk. But yeah, after waiting for 4 year+ to finally be able to get a new one, I can't wait ! + whats with the predictions of a white Easter? I honestly can't believe we might have a white Easter and not a white Christmas ><!
  12. Will, actually its more like yesterday Spring is here, since that was the Equinox. But still, I'm so excited that Spring is officially here. I've had winter wrap up in my head all day, and I can't stop being excited. Im just wondering what everyones doing to celebrate!!!
