  1. I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of these legendary ponies in the upcoming episodes, so let the discussion begin! As for me, my favorite (so far) is Mage Meadowbrook. Not only is her character design lovely ("I really like her mane!"), but I love listening to her accent. I think it was neat how her legend has been mentioned as early as the start of season 5. I included Stygian in the poll as well, as I expect he's got some fans. While he's technically not one of the pillars, he is responsible for their existence, and, indirectly, the Elements of Harmony too. So, who is your favorite, and why?
  2. He's here. I ordered a custom pony plush months ago. Of one of my favorite guys. And now he's here. Stygian! This is made by little-broy-peep on deviantart, And oh my god guys... He's so well made! I'm in sheer adoration. He has such heft to him. It makes it slightly harder to cuddle with than I was picturing, but it means he feels more "real" than you would think too! His cloak can come off too. He has a clasp on his front where you can undo it. Months ago I was looking around plush maker pages on deviantart, and on one waiting list, I saw Stygian's name on it! No way! Someone is making him! This would be the first time he would be made in plush form! I decided I had to get on that train. The images came out of that first plush and I was in utter love. So when the opportunity came, I signed on to the list for my own. And now I have possibly the second Stygian plush ever. You've probably picked up on it if you look at my posts, but he is one of my favorite characters on the show. He is the one I have fixated on the most. Something drew me to him. Maybe it's because I first learned of his name and wondered what he had to do with the Pony of Shadows, and maybe it's because I felt for him on another level after hearing his story and jealous spiteful situation. I'm sure that it's a mix of both. And since reading the Legends of Magic comics, which showwcase the Pillars, and Stygian's journey to find them, and hints of his eventual falling out, and the Nightmare Knights comics, where he is one of a team of five former villains teaming up to recover Luna's magic, I've come to love him even more. I sometimes wonder why he doesn't get as much love as others, at least from the fanart side. Lots of people have customs of their favorite ponies or OCs. There's lots of photos of people's work, I never jumped on that wagon... until now. And now I got a shipment that may as well be somepony who sent himself direct from Equestria itself, and I'm so happy. I feel this serves as a pretty wonderful personal coda to the show being over. I've never gotten a custom plush of anyone, pony or not. But the level of which I'm fixated on him was enough to get me to take the step. One day I might do the custom thing again, but I don't want to spend too much money at once. But if I do, I'm sure it will be either Sandbar or Sunburst. Both are serious cuties. What do you think?
  3. We are here to appreciate best boy Stygian!
  4. To celebrate my love of Stygian being rekindled by The L-Train's new fantastic music project, Pillars of Equestria, I wrote an origin story for him on how he was convinced by the Pony of Shadows to turn evil.
  5. The MLP:FIM Gameloft campaign based on the Season 7 finally has ended, I won the Pony of Shadows and made a Montage with scenes from him in the game, the show, and other characters that share a similar theme to him with music that fits his character, Dark Monster Metal.
  6. The Pony of Shadows is back, but if you have been playing this game, you will know that the story is different in the game, and the Ponies have changed the events of time before facing Stygian. Things are not like how their were in the tv show. Can the Mane 7 still prevail, or will Sun Light and Moon Light fade away into ultimate darkness?
  7. -WELCOME TO STYGIAN AKA PONY OF SHADOWS FAN CLUB- In the season seven finale Shadow Play, the six "Pillars of Old Equestria" with Mistmane, Flash Magnus, Somnambula, Rockhoof, Mage Meadowbrook, and Star Swirl the Bearded, representing the Element of Strength had a thousand-year-old friendship problem that only Starlight Glimmer realized. Long ago, the Pillars were brought together by the unicorn colt Stygian to battle a great evil as known as the sirens. When Stygian later turned into the Pony of Shadows, the Pillars acrificed themselves to imprison him in limbo. In present day, Applejack retrieves Rockhoof's shovel for a ritual to free the Pillars from limbo. When the Pony of Shadows is freed along with them, the Pillars team up with the Mane Six to separate Stygian from the darkness and ban it to limbo once again. RULES Rules of this thread;-Do not post pictures of other ponies in this thread (except the images with other ponies including Stygian/Pony of Shadows). They belong in their respective fan club threads.-Do not hate on another fan club, for example posting "Apple Bloom is better!" in the Princess Luna thread.-The global forum rules still apply, of course, so no NSFW pics. Shipping is fine, but keep it appropriate.This is the Stygian / Pony of Shadows thread, please only post here about him.
  8. I watched Shadow Play a few days ago, and it's awesome. But Stygian. Man. Love the guy! But let's talk about his...inner feelings. Oh man. Disclosure: Before going into this episode, I knew there was a guy named Stygian, had to do with the Pony of Shadows, and might not be a bad guy. But I didn't know what happened or why, and I've spent weeks speculating. Now that I've seen the episode, I know what happened and why. And reflecting on it, I've... come to realize that the emotions he felt are eerily real to me. I've been jealous before. I've felt wronged and spiteful before. And in the worst case scenarios, when that happens, all these awful, spiteful grudging thoughts take place. It's almost like saying that misery loves company. It's a draw I've been in before. Feelings of rejection seem to breed utter contempt. Case in point: Weeks before Thanksgiving, I bought the Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC, which had a code in recepit form. I purposely put it with my game systems so it woudln't seem like some random recepit laying on the floor to be accidentally thrown away... but it was. My mother did that as we were getting our rooms clean, and I started to get frustrated, because that was $20! I was told that it was my fault for putting the recepit there, and that I would only get $10 back, but I was pretty livid. If someone took a $20 bill from you and burned it, yeah you'd be pissed! I started to make a bigger deal out of it, and the $10 was rescinded, and I made a bigger deal out of it. How could it be my fault when I put it in a certain place? On Thanksgiving I drove to the same Gamestop trying to see if I could get a reprint, but they couldn't do that, and I made an even bigger deal, this time really pissed off and yelling at the phone. This just about ruined Thanksgiving. I was off somewhere, when I came home I was ostracized, and I felt spurned and wronged. I just wanted to be away from everyone. It's not far fetched to have spiteful thoughts at this, just steeped in darkness. (things were fixed later, but this is a situation that had these sort of contemptuous thoughts that are easy to get into. There's a good line I found from a deviantart drawing of Styg: Feelings of jealousy and betrayal can lead one to become consumed by the darkness growing within them. And as Stygian discovered, in a world as highly magical as Equestria, that last part can potentially become literal. I'm only just realizing this contemptuous mindset extends to my attitude toward many poitical things too, which I ruminate about way too much now thanks to OCD. Things that may or may not have anything to do with me but are thought about too much anyway.. Things that are happening that flood me with disgust. I've hypothesized what one would do to stop something like that, what (very much not good) ways one would take things into one's own hands. Things I would never want to do, but the spiteful feelings are seriously real. Sometimes I've had to shake those thoughts off, but it's concerningly soothing to think about them. The thoughts Stygian must have been feeling are very real. Not in a literal shadow sort of way, but even so. Some posts I've seen dismiss him, one using the word "crybaby", which I don't really agree with. Dismiss the idea of it just being "emo" and you see some serious feelings going on here. And though poor communication skills between him and the Pillars is very obvious, the sentiment expressed is eerily resonating. I know I'm not a dark person, but it's easy to fall into this trap. What about you?
  9. Soooooooooooooooooooo...... what are the chances of Twilight and Stygian getting paired up by the fanbase?
