  1. So i rewatched Equestria Girls, because despite purist brony opinion, it was a good movie. In the movie princess celestia says sunset shimmer was a student before Twilight, BUT twilght became a student when she was very young. So i see two possibilities The first, is that sunset shimmer is much older than twilight is, because sunset shimmer would have to be older than twilight to make decisions on the quality and speed of her training, causing her to turn on Celestia. But Sunset Shimmer is a highschool senior, because pinkie pie said she was princess "3 years in a row", and twilight is at the very least a freshman, but likely older than that My second theory, is that sunset shimmer has a very high IQ and WAS able to make educated decisions on her training at only a few years older than twilight, or mabye even her exact age. But the problem with this is that Sunset's Plan was incredibly flawed, something that a very intelligent person probably wouldn't make So what do you guys think? How old Is Sunset Shimmer?
  2. Hi everypony Throughout the years, I've read several interesting posts such as "How fast was Rainbow Dash when she achieved Sonic Rainboom" or "Comparing scales in MLP universe to our universe". So I thought it would be interesting to do a project on studying how the Equestria solar system would look like. I started this project a year ago but now I finally wrote it in a readable fashion (by which I mean in a way that hopefully makes some sense ). I 'published' this paper here in picture form, but I also attached the original pdf file. Project_MLP.pdf. I hope you guys enjoy it and please do let me know if something I wrote doesn't seem to make sense or is not clear . Any form of feedback would be amazing and greatly appreciated . And let me know what are your thoughts on how the Equestria solar system should look like or any other thoughts you have on the role of Science in Equestria in general. (pictures can be enlarged upon clicking and zooming in in a new window ) (note: This is an updated version of a blog post on the same topic I did a year ago. Now that I looked back, there were a few (huge) mistakes there which I now corrected) Project_MLP.pdf
  3. Speculation on What Season 9 (The Last Season?) of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Will Be Like: Speculations based on leaked information! Spoilers ahead. Anyway, those are just my speculations on what could happen/occur come Season 9 (should it be the last season of FIM). But what do you think, do you agree with my speculations? What are yours? Let me and everyone else know. 😊 God Bless and Take Care. Speculation on What Season 9.docx
  4. In other words, could certain questions finally get answed , and certain theroies be put to rest. Well, with any kind of closuer on a franchise, the finale always seems to (at most times) open the doors to allow the writers to get a lot of stuff out of their system for themselves and for at most, the fans. But will the final season of MLP : FIM do that as well? Here I talk about what could be finally addressed, if that is the case. Now one of the first things that they (the writers) could finally address, is the whole Spike x Rarity situation. What I mean is, that if the writers choose to do so (IMO I believe they will), this will finally be addressed, and the outcome will be one that is a positive one, and yet be one that not a lot of the brony/pegasister community will agree on. And what the outcome will be, Spike and Rarity together. You may ask "How?" Well, it's quite simple, if you look at the fact, that they've been teasing this since Eps. 1, and throughout the show's run, they've had several episodes centered around Spike, that have also involved Rarity in some major/minor capacity, and with it being the final season of the show, like I mentioned at the beginning at the start, it opens the door for this to take place. And the reason being is, unless the series finale somehow ties into G5 and G5 becomes a soft Retcon/Reboot of FIM, then (IMO) this Spike x Rarity Deal will finally become a reality. 2. A Sugar Belle and Big Mac wedding will most likely happen. The reason being is the fact that this could be looked at as a 3 chapter deal, with the first happening in S7 , and So it only makes sense to tie this trifecta up with a 3rd and final chapter happening in the final season, which would culminate with a wedding between Sugar and BIg. Heck, for emotional sake, have the spirts of AJ, AppleBloom and Big Mac's parents appear to show their love and support, and thus have the kids and Sugar Belle seem as well. 3. Finally Addressing Celestria and Luna's orgins. Yes, before the show comes to a close, this has to be addressed, especially after giving them some moments to shine, first in the Premiere of S6 and most recently, not once but twice in S7, and This is something that finally needs to be addressed and I believe (IMO) that the writing staff of FIM will finally do so in the final season. Espiecally with the fact, that if you go back to the S6 Premiere, they both said, "That the birth of an Alicorn, is something Equestria has never seen", and that it was "Even beyond their understanding." Yeah, when they both said those things, that was enough of red flag, and more of a legit reasoning to wanna know about their orgins. 4. Starlight Glimmer becoming an Alicorn? Yes, indeed, this is most likely the direction they are heading, and if S9 is it for the show, definitely expect the writing staff to go this route. And, why?, you may ask. Because it seems that's what they building towards with her. (at least in my IMO), and would make sense that they writing staff make this a reality. 5. Sunset Shimmer Returns! , and the recent "Mirror Magic" EQG special, she has never returned to Equestria on the "Friendship is Magic" side of things. So with the final season, I truly believe and hope, (like many do) that this will be the season that it finally happens. And all honesty, I feel the writing staff knows that as well and will make it happen. 6. I believe that a G1 character has to be brought in, with a G4/FIM update, and that character should Majesty. And if you want a reason why, well if you watch MLP-Silver Quill's and ILOVEKPALOT's Video they did on Villains in MLP, than you pretty much get your answer there, as to why she should be brought in. Basically make her a character, that believes she's doing the right thing, but in fact is not. Or as Silver Quill put it, make her a rogue element that believes that all villainy, even those that have been redeemed, should be disposed of. Than the writers can build towards something between her and Twilight, and at same time, they could acknowledge a history between Celestria, Luna and Majesty as well, and that could really build the tension between her and Twilight. But that's what I (IMO) feel the writers will/would do in the final season, should it be more freelanced. What are your thoughts? God Bless!
  5. 400th post milestone for me. I believe that in the final season, Rarity will become not just our lovable fashion guru, but will become a brand. I could see her future bearing many new locations for her business. Perhaps a boutique in Absynnia, or Griffonstone, even Las Pegasus would be a great location. She could become a face of Equestria. Thoughts?
  6. Something that has always bugged me about MLP is how big of a visual gap there is between the ponies of the show. We've seen foals, "adult" ponies, and elderly ponies. But we've never seen any that appear to be inbetween foals and adults in terms of size and maturity. Let's start off with what we do know: Lauren Faust has stated that the Mane 6 are young adults with a maturity level anywhere between 12-18 years of age. Fluttershy stated that she is a year older than Pinkie Pie. In "Cutie Mark Chronicles", she visually appears to be more mature than every other filly in her class. Did she just grow faster than the others? This is the closest we've seen to a "teenage pony". It's hinted in "Pinkie Pride" that Rainbow Dash is 21 years old as her birthday cake has 21 candles. This is consistent with the lifestyle of the ponies in the show. The Mane 6 are all out of school, all have jobs or occupations of some sort that a normal adult would have, and all live in their own residence by their own means. They display the intelligence of someone who's at the very least a young adult If we are to follow the traditional time period in which people mature to the point of living independently, we can presume based off this that the Mane 6 are anywhere between 17-22 years of age in "human years". In Equestria Girls, when Twilight goes through the portal, she transforms into a being who appears to be either 17 or 18 years of age as she, along with the rest of the Mane 6, are portrayed as late high school students. As for the CMC and other similar ponies, they appear to be anywhere between the ages of 7-12. Equestrian schooling seems to finish at the basic level after the human equivalent of elementary school as no "middle" or "high school" equivalents are ever mentioned. This makes sense because in Equestrian society, ponies learn their special talents (cutie marks) around this age, making further schooling largely unnecessary. The equivalent of college seems to be present, albeit as an extension of their studies in whatever talent they possess. But where are the "teenage ponies", the ones inbetween foals and adult ponies? An argument could be made that the Mane 6 are actually around 14-16 years old, but this still doesn't explain why ponies between the ages of the Mane 6 and the CMC are never seen. A few theories/explanations/possibilities that may be the cause for this: Theory 1: Around the age of 12-15, ponies undergo a massive growth spurt, quickly going from appearing like foals to appearing like adults. The reason "teenage ponies" aren't seen is because they don't stay in such a visual state for long. This would also draw a parallel with how real horses grow - they mature rapidly from child to adult. Theory 2: Some of the ponies in the show are meant to be representative of teenage ponies, however the art style and constant usage of templates causes them to appear similarly sized as adults Theory 3: The writers/designers simply never wanted to design teenage ponies, and they leave the ponies ages up in the air on purpose ------- What are your thoughts on the matter?
  7. For many years, MLP has does us that "friendship is magic" (roll credits XD), but is it really? I have reason to believe that, ever since we've started watching Friendship is Magic, Celestia has been lying and manipulating everypony, and even us! "Celestia is a great princess and leader, and she'd never plan a conspiracy!" you may be typing right now. Well, I'm sorry to tell you, but Celestia hasn't been honest with anypony, and I'm gonna expose her! First, have you noticed that, whenever the Cutie Map summons a number of the Mane Six to an area, they try to make the inhabitants of said area to become friends with them, it would even forced on the inhabitants of the area, while disregarding their objections and their own ways of life and beliefs. If they turn down the friendship offer, the Mane Six treat them like they're wrong and the bad guy for refusing the offer, basically shaming them. However, if they accept the offer, it's always after the Mane Six solve a problem they've been dealing with for some time, and they appear to be more willing to do what the Mane Six ask of them. In case you didn't put the pieces together so far, basically, the friendship bond that the Mane Six try to make others apply makes them more submissive to authority, Celestia, in this case. Speaking of Celestia, when she tells the Mane Six what to do and where to go, if you pay close attention to it, it sounds like Celestia knows more about the area she's sending the Mane Six to than she's saying, even using the "but I don't know much about this area" card so she doesn't look suspicious. This part of the episode may seem like exposition and Celestia giving the Mane Six some info about the area they're going to and some warnings, but it seems more like instructions. When take this into consideration, it's quite possible that Celestia herself controls the Cutie Map. "Okay, but what's Celestia's 'agenda,' as you're claiming she has?" you're asking. Celestia's agenda is about expanding her kingdom by using the concept of friendship make other more submissive and obedient to her rule and authority. If you're friends with somepony, you'll lower your guard and be more open to them, and this, in turn, makes you more likely to do something if they ask you. Believe it or not, we have an example of Celestia's agenda being take into effect: The Crystal Empire. In The Crystal Empire, Part 1, Celestia explains the Crystal Empire to Twilight, but if you take a closer look at Celestia story, you can tell that it doesn't sound right and maybe even fabricated. She says that King Sombra was an evil king that enslaved his people. But I ask you, what proof do we have of that, outside of Celestia's story? We don't. So, this was just a story Celestia told Twilight so she'll be biased, supportive, and obedient to Celestia's instructions. So, yeah, Celestia's story of King Sombra is just that, a story. Celestia said that her knowledge of the Crystal Empire "was very limited," but I don't think this is true. So, prior to Cadance 's and Shining's journey to the Crystal Empire, Celestia gave Cadance a memory-wiping spell and a false memory spell to use on the Crystal Ponies. The memory-wiping spell was used so the Crystal Ponies would forget the good things King Sombra has done for them, and the false memory spell was used to implant the false memory that King Sombra was an evil king that enslaved his people into the Crystal Ponies' minds. When a Crystal Pony asked Twilight, "Were we really gone 1000 years?" she then appears to be in pain after she asked and we see some creepy eyes show up as a mental image, which appear to be Sombra's, and this was a failsafe of the spells that were put on the Crystal Ponies and activates whenever they question what they've been told about their past. This was the spells' way of saying, "Do not question what you've been told!" And those eyes may actually be Celestia's because we've seen her eyes like this before, when she was giving Twilight instructions prior to arriving at the Crystal Empire. Also, the Sombra we see in episodes The Crystal Empire, Parts 1 & 2 may actually have been an illusion that Celestia (or Cadence) made to make it look like her fictitious story was true. This way, the Crystal Ponies will be more willing and likely to accept Cadence and Shining as they're new rulers because it was staged to look like they were being rescued. And it's possible that the original King Sombra (who was a good king and supportive of his people) was murdered when Cadance and Shining arrived at the Crystal Empire, and the "gone for 1000 years" bit may have been a part of the false memory spell. But after all is said and done, it's not really Shining and Cadence that's ruling the Crystal Empire, it's actually Celestia.With Cadence in charge, Celestia can rule the Crystal Empire through Cadence by giving her instructions under the table and behind closed doors.The Mane Six are completely unaware that Celestia is using friendship to brainwash others.By only showing the Mane Six the positives of friendship, Celestia can manipulate them to do her bidding with getting her hooves dirty.And Celestia may really a queen and uses the "princess" title to make her seem more harmless so nopony would suspect her of any conspiracy. I wouldn't put it past her of unleashing or creating some of the enemies the Mane Six come across to distract them so they wouldn't think to look at Celestia as the source of these problems. This way, Celestia won't get caught and her agenda can be fulfilled without being noticed. So, what do you think of this theory? Is Celestia really a king princess of Equestria, or is that merely a façade to mask her agenda?
  8. the reformation of the changelings is done and i doubt it will be revoked, but many people liked the old changelings and miss them. so i was wondering, could there be other Changeling Hives? with another queen and totally seperate from Chrysalis' . i think this would be a nice way to have both forms
  9. You remember the Mare in the Moon story we're told at the very start of the show? Well, I have a theory that will expose it as a lie... What were we told from the story? Celestia and Luna were 2 sisters that raised and lowered the Sun and Moon, but Luna became jealous because she wasn't getting any attention and decided to not lower the Moon one night. After that, she became Nightmare Moon, and Celestia reluctantly used the Elements of Harmony to banish Nightmare Moon on the Moon for 1000 years, and the show starts one the 1000th year. I don't think this is actually true. No, I believe Celestia told everypony this story...in reverse. If you pay attention to Celestia's behavior and mentality while interacting with Luna throughout the series, she seems to have a know-it-all and "I come first" attitude. It implies that Celestia pushes Luna aside while she gets the spotlight. If you take this and apply it with my theory that Celestia is using the concept of friendship to brainwash and indoctrinate everypony to expand her kingdom, then you can see that Celestia is pretty arrogant, manipulative, and controlling. So, when you look at the Mare in the Moon story from Luna's point of view, all she wanted was some of the attention and some credit, but the ponies did their thing during the day while sleeping during the night. It's clear that Luna felt left out and unappreciated. Remember when the story said that Luna wanted the night to last forever and turned evil when she refused to listen to Celestia? The story is making Luna look like a spoiled brat for not getting her way. Doesn't it seem like the story is trying to make Luna look like the bad guy while glorifying Celetsia at the same time? I think Celestia herself wrote the Mare in the Moon story, and she did it in a way that will make her look good and Luna bad. This gives off the impression to the story's readers that Celestia is the superior princess and the one you need to trust, and this, in turn, will make everypony discredit and disregard Luna. I could leave this here, but I think there's more to this. What if the Luna we've seen isn't the real Luna? What if...the original Luna was murdered by Celestia? "Oh, buck off, there's no way that Celestia would do something like this! " you Celestia fans out there, but just hear me out, here. When Luna refused to lower the Moon, the story claimed she was being a brat, but she was trying to stand up for herself from Celestia's mental abuse towards her. After Luna transformed herself into Nightmare Moon, Celestia realized that she wasn't gonna stay submissive and obedient to her authority anymore, so she decided to murder Luna to make sure her authority and rule wouldn't be challenged or overthrown. After the murder, Celestia told everypony that Luna went rogue, but this was a story she used to gain the trust and support from her subjects. So, Celestia basically covered up Luna's murder in order to protect her reputation and to keep her power. Celestia knew that somepony could eventually figure out the conspiracy, so she decided to make a clone of Luna as a fail-safe so she wouldn't be found out. When the events of the first 2 episodes took place, it was time for Celestia to fake Nightmare Moon's return. Remember when Celestia seem to disappear and Nightmare Moon appeared? I believe that the Nightmare Moon we see in those first 2 episodes was really Celestia in disguise. This explains why Celestia was missing without any trace or explanation. When Nightmare Moon was defeated, Celestia put the Luna clone in her place, and she reappeared, making it look like she was released from where Nightmare Moon supposedly banished her to. The idea that Nightmare Moon was Celestia in disguise makes sense because, after Nightmare Moon was defeated, she appeared out of nowhere. Again, we're giving NO explanation for how Celestia supposedly disappeared by Nightmare Moon and where she was. It makes all of this seem to be a set up. And did you ever notice how easily Nightmare Moon was defeated? I mean, she didn't even put up a fight. And all the damage she made was easily reversible. Now, where does the "told on reverse" bit come in? Celestia didn't want competition from her sister when it came to ruling Equestria. Luna was the one who was trying to reason with Celestia about sharing the rule 50-50, but Celestia wasn't about to give any of it up. This is what the "Luna refused to lower the Moon to make room for the day" bit was really; it was a metaphor of one not sharing the power with the co-ruler and keeping it to themselves. The Mare in the Moon story shifted this aspect onto Luna, to make her look like the corrupted one. The Luna clone (the Luna we see in the show) was given the false memory that was the Mare in the Moon story by Celestia to make sure that the lie wouldn't be exposed, and her agenda would continue to be fulfilled without interruption... What do you think of this theory?
  10. I've been wondering this for a while. What you think it's the real name of the pegasus better know as Daring Do? I believe it's A.K Yearling, as that's the name she used when she studied literature and her public persona, and Daring Do is her alias. It would make little sense if she uses her real name when dealing with dangerous douches around. Then again, I haven't read the books (yet), so I might be mistaken
  11. Let me just say i am trying to make this as Safe For Work as possible as to not break any rules. Ok, so first of all let me just say please no "it would never happen given the theme" please none of that. do not break 4th wall in an equestrian point of view. second of all this is just mainly to hear opinions.. ---- Ok, so Equestrian Anatomy ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Pony Breeding has been confirmed on how it works in Equestria but you can clearly not see any ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)parts. I always thought that when ponies were both in the mood the female could just make their ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)parts appear, i cant think of many other explanations(remember not to break rule1). another thing i was wondering was how and why the famous Rainbow Dash getting Fluttershy out of bed played out? and why fluttershy felt the need to hide under her blankets and be embarrassed when RD ripped off the covers. Now nothing was shown but this ties into my theory from above. i was mainly wanting to know you'r thought on the topics, not just responses to my theory. Yes i am seeking genuine answers.
  12. I became a brony around when the first Equestria Girls movie came out in mid 2013. And when I first watched it, I noticed that its plot and execution is almost identical to the first 2 episodes of Friendship is Magic, Friendship is Magic, Part 1 and Friendship is Magic, Part 2. Here's my theory: the Equestria Girls universe is the real Friendship is Magic universe, while the Friendship is Magic show we all know and love is what Twilight is writing in her diary every day. The show is probably how Twilight is presenting her experiences, adding various concepts to make the diary entries more interesting. These are the things that both the movie and the first 2 episodes of the show had in common: ▶ Twilight enters a new environment that's outside of her comfort zone ▶ Twilight has to make new friends that ▶ Twilight has a hard time fitting in at first ▶ Twilight has to get the McGuffin. However, the antagonist for both are different: Nightmare Moon for the show, Sunset Shimmer for the movie. Again, the show is being told from Twilight point of view, so a few things in the show and movies won't be identical. If this is theory, then Twilight would've been transferred to Canterlot High School from her previous school when she moved. Being in a new school, she's nervous and being in a new and unfamiliar environment. When talking with Celestia as an attempt to learn more about the school so she won't feel so alien. And when Celestia mentioned the a crown for the school dance, Twilight saw this as an opportunity to gain respect and acknowledgement. Sunset, being the most popular girl in the school (portrayed as the school bully in the diary entries) didn't want to be replaced, so she thought of how to get rid of any competition. But after a few days, Twilight was still feeling like she didn't belong or if anypony cared, but Celestia suggested that she go make some friends, but Twilight was a bit nervous to introduced herself, but she remembered that, if she befriended the right individuals, she'd had an easier time in getting the crown and becoming the princess of the school dance. Sunset wasn't having any of that and tried to make Twilight look bad so she wouldn't be allowed to apply for school dance princess, but Twilight's friends managed to clear her name. So, what do you think of this theory? I know it sounds like the "it's all in their head" cliché, but this theory is supposed to explain that the Equestria Girls movies is the real MLP universe, and the show is what Twilight is writing in her diary but soon makes the diary into a book of stories to entertain herself The rest of the Mane Six also enjoyed reading these stories, and Twilight let them write their own contributing stories, which translates as each of the Mane Six having their own episode in the series. Several concepts and characters from the show were either based on something/somepony or made up entirely for the stories that were being written.
  13. Discord is is, hooves-down, the most comical and chaotic character in the G4 MLP universe. He sadly doesn't appear all that much in the series, but he's entertaining when he does. But what is Discord, really? In The Return of Harmony, Part 1, Cheerilee states that Discord is a draconequus, but I don't think that's his true species at all. I propose to you that Discord is actually not a draconequus, but a chimera. Now, I know we've seen an actual chimera in the show, but the term "chimera" is also used for an animal that has parts of various species, and this fits Discord much better. The beast from Beauty and the Beast, for example, is also a chimera, as he has various parts from various species. For those who don't know, the word "draconequus" is a portmanteau of the Latin words "draco" (dragon) and "equus" (horse), but Discord doesn't seem to have dragon-like attributes. The MLP Wiki even states that Discord is a chimera. [LINK] So, what do you think of this brief theory? Is Discord a chimera, or do you have a different explanation for Discord's species?
  14. That's a question that's been bothering me for a while now. As I have plans to make my own persona of one, there is very little to go on what a draconequus actually is. From what we've seen of Discord he is clearly one of, if not THE most powerful being on Equestria. But I get the feeling we can't entirely trust completely in what Discord says, as he does seem the sort to grant himself titles of godhood or reinvent his backstory frequently to suit his whims in a very Joker-esque fashion. Have heard rumors that one of the semi-cannon books mention something about a whole race Discord once belonged to. But I find that somewhat dubious as this world is already taxed just trying to contain just one Discord. My own headcannon is that draconequui are some sort of inorganic, inter-dimensional travelers not unlike the Planeswalkers of Magic the Gathering or the Q continuum that Discord was originally based on. Just that different dimensions have different rules of what counts as existence so a Draconequus has to keep replacing their body as they age eventually becoming a being of pure thought inhabiting a self-made chimera. Look forward to your turns of logic! -WDRSHNS
  15. What if... What just if, he was actually a lizard. and the dragon thing is just a cover-up. I mean, what is a dragon doing in a world filled with horses. A lizard makes 999% more sense. Also, he is purple, and has spikes on him. Who also have that? Lizards change color when in an environment that they don't like. And why should lizard like to be with horses. My final evidence is that dragons eat meat. What are made of meat???===?? HORSES, PONYS AND OTHER HORSE LIKE CREATURES (Like that zebra pony that was actually quite hot). so this means Spike is a Charmander. Id also like to thank this community and Nightmare Terror for helping me come out with the courage to write this, I read his posts and this gave me heart
  16. At 1:01 while Celestia talks about "magical items created for evil" they show several things we've seen throughout the show, and would expect to see...except for two of those things. One the bones of the Arimaspi (big goat thingy that attacked the griffons, and stole their treasure), and the other was Daybreaker's crown-helmet thingy! Soooo yea - mind kinda blown here, cause this implies one, that the Arimaspi may ether have been an artifact used by someone to attack the griffons for said treasure or at least it's bones could be (or have already been) made into an evil artifact and two, that Daybreaker's crownhelm is such an artifact which could mean either she may be in the show for real or she was already real at one point! I know this is just speculation but, what do you guys think? Video linked below, remember: pause at 1:01!
  17. So I have been watching these https://youtu.be/1EoPK9gdIFo https://youtu.be/3qGIyri4Ynw https://youtu.be/fACzoXV2fWk And I realized that he is entirely correct. Before I get into this, please no "it's just a kids show" in the comments. So sure, Equestria is said to be a place about Friendship and happiness, but it' not. First of all let' talk about the Rulers, some would Argue that the Tree of Harmony is the true ruler and creates Alicorns as tools to fight evil, but let' focus on the more important "Rulers" I'm talking about Celestia and Luna (more Celestia than luna). So Celestia is not exactly evil, but is definitely not far from it. To start off, have you ever noticed how all of the pony inhabited places are lovely and song really have any problems( more on that later). Well let' not forget about the rest of Equestria, the parts that are in poverty, if Celestia was truly nice than she would help the other Races, such as the Griffins. Ever notice how the Griffins live in Poverty, and some could say that all of that has been fixed, but I doubt that that small place that we saw was all of the Griffins society, so why does Celestia not help them? Well song say that they song have the Recourses because Unicorns pretty much rule the world(more on that later as well) and have an endless supply of materials via magic. I think that Celestia only helps her people as we have sort of heard her alute to. That also might be why Sombre was straight up destroyed, no second chances or anything, as we have seen, they have almost no mercy on anything that could pose a threat. It's obvious that discord doesn't count, because I'm pretty sure that destroying a being that can literally do anything they want wouldn't be the best move on the Political side of things. So now to talk more about the enemies. Celestia had no leniency on Luna/Nightmare Moon because her power would be questioned, and and Luna/Nightmare Moon really posed a threat. Celestia probably could have just banished her to the moon for a quarter of the time because feelings usually dont take 1000 years to Air out( I guess?) And Nightmare Moon came to be because of feelings that built up. Now before I get any deeper in I just wanna say that if you think about it than nothing is really evil, only different points of view and objectives that some disagree with. But also about pretty much above this point I said about Celestia isn't entirely her fault. I mean, you make something one of the most powerful known beings, and however good they are, they can't always think about everyone. Being powerful is hard and most powerful things become corrupt because their scared that something might take them out of power. The way I look at it is pretty much you being born into something that your, for the most part good at, and also have the power to keep people from taking that ONE thing that your good at away. So of course things become corrupt to power.Celestia is not perfect. But i think she does her best and i dont really think that anypony can do better than her. Now my view on Celestia might seem really Passive aggressive, and sorry for my bad Sentence structure, but bare with me. ( I just had to delete half of this topic because it countered all my points) another it seems that no matter how I word it this topic keeps looping back around and I end up supporting the other end so that's what I'm gonna do( pretty much making this topic useless). But another point I want to mention is that if Equestria is such a nice place, than why is their a caste system. Sure you could say that every society has some sort of caste system, but it' different when literally 1/3 of a regions population can literally do anything they want. Yes I'm talking about the unicorns, they are pretty much on top as most people can see. But I guess that this sis not our world. And what may seem so bad to us is natural there, and probably shouldnt be interfered with. Sort of off topic, but as an example I'm gonna say, what about the holocaust. Sure it was a bad thing(in most people's eyes) but i think thats whats done is done. And under no circumstances should you alter the past, or interfere with things you dont understand. Like if you were to somehow put an end to Equestrias Caste system, them What? And if you went back in time to kill Hitler, then for all you know the world wouldn't be here. Back on topic again. To wrap this pointless jumble of words up I think that Equestria is the norm for Equestria and our world is the Norm for our World. If Equestria looked at our planet how we look at theirs than they would probably think that a ot of things are worse here. But that' just how things work. And I do believe that Equestria IS a better place than earth. But I bet if we put together a Montage of all the good things that happen on earth(excluding the bad) something else might think that this place is better. But countering my point again, I do think Equestria is a much better place. And I would live there in a heartbeat. let me know what you thought about this. Please no mean comments( if there are any anyways) and again, please no "it' just a show" And if you could or could try to, how would you change Equestria for the better. Also again, would you go there if given the choice.
  18. Well, I know this may be a bit of a reach but i recently re-watched a royal problem, and stuff I didn't notice before because of the shock of Day Breaker, I started to notice. Did Day Breaker exist in the real world before? Now, one thing that i noticed while watching MLP in general is that Celestia is seen as... (scary i guess)... when she has seemed very lenient in the episodes we have seen. Another thing is that Celestia seems to enjoy chaos... (Treehugger almost got banished to another universe and she thought nothing of it. Actually, she seemed to enjoy it). That is a bit of a dark sense of humor. However, the biggest reason i made this topic is because... Day-breaker didn't seem like an unknown entity to either of the sisters. Luna knew who she was the second she laid eyes on her and Celestia mentioned that she will never exist again. She could have been talking about nightmare moon but... i don't think so. I actually thought about Daybreaker motivations and remembered the future of the worst world completely desolated... like it's been burned of all life. Could Day Breaker be a reality in this scenario? Could Celestia become the most evil Villian in MLP when push comes to shove?
  19. Hello everypony, I just finished watching the Season 6 Premier, which was great by the way, and a new alicorn was introduced. Now, this alicorn is the baby of Cadence and Shining Armor, and I was wondering why the baby is an alicorn if Shining Armor is only a unicorn and cadence isn't naturally an alicorn. Granted in the show, even Luna and Celestia had no clue as to why the baby was an alicorn, but does anypony have any predictions and/or theories about this that they would like to share? To follow up on this, until the end of Season 5, only princesses could be alicorn as far as anypony knew, so does this suggest that baby Flurry Heart is a princess, and if so, would Cadence be considered a queen? Hopefully in future episodes, we may find out the answers to these questions, but as of this moment, I'm very deep in thought and am curious as to what you all have to say about this. Please... fuel my ideas! Thank you kindly, Thundershock
  20. In My little Pony: Friendship is Magic there is a character of particular interest to me. Discord. The spirit of chaos, master of random, former ruler of Equestria and... apparently Tirek’s dumb puppet. It seems to me that the series likes to say that Discord has immense magical ability but chooses not to use it. The purpose of my query is this: exactly how powerful is Discord? Is he powerful but lazy or something else? I have always loved Discord; it takes real guts to steal the Elements of Harmony from Canterlot Castle. It seems that Discord’s power is awesome and fantastical but at the same time horribly ignored. In his introductory episode he is not only of stealing the Elements of Harmony from the most defended place in Equestria but also can remove pegasus wings and unicorn horns with minimal effort, a literal snap of his fingers. Instead of immediately wiping out his enemies, however, he chooses to toy with them and make them try to get the Elements back. While they wander through the Canterlot garden labyrinth he chooses to taunt them further and we see that he can taint the hearts and minds of ponies with a touch of his finger. Eventually the Mane 6 power through and get the Elements back and revert him to his stone prison. But why did he just stand there and let himself be turned to stone? He knew what those relics were capable of and chose to sit on his throne while an obviously dooming rainbow arched above and headed straight for him. Outside of his introductory episodes we see he is able to bend and break the very laws of physics, also with minimal effort. He makes houses spin like merry-go-rounds, can duplicate himself and much more. Yet when Tirek confronts him he uses his fantastic magical power and the obvious clues that his “friend” dropped before he made his move and... let’s his magic be drained from him. If my theory holds true then Discord should have been able to draw strength from the chaos around him because we know he can and confront him again but he doesn’t. He is in a helpless state for the rest of the episode. In the circumstance that Fluttershy is threatened, I have no doubt that the crust of the Earth would roll and quake and the heavens would summon clouds to hide from his rage. But we never see Discord in a combat scenario so I’m reduced to scouring the internet for an answer. If anyone can give me clarification or criticism I’m all ears but please tell me if Discord is just powerful and aloof or something! Sincerely, The Pinball King
  21. Though they are shown only once, it seems like something more is behind them. They are gone, and when AJ, Apple Bloom, and Big Mac talk to Burnt Oak, Mrs. Cake, and Mayor Mare there seems to be an unspoken sadness... as if Pear Butter and Bright Mac passed away. My theory is that they had a Romeo and Juliet type situation, given that they are in the midst of a large family feud. What are your thoughts? Edit: How do you think they died?
  22. I have been wondering for the past few days how age works in the show. For instance, Spike is a baby dragon, yet he was born when Twilight got her cutie mark. (Long time ago). At one point I compared ages between Equestria Girls and Friendship is Magic. The CMC seem to be freshmen. While all the Mane 6 are clearly Seniors, the first movie would be the fourth year Sunset Shimmer would have gotten the Prom Queen status. So that is that, but then that would mean Spike can't be older than three years old. At the same time, Twilight has been in Ponyville for at least 2+ years. Because she has been there for three Hearth Warmings and whatnot. So if it is a three year difference, that would explain the way age works in Equestria Girls. Still, that would make the ponies at the schoolhouse adults by now. So my big question is, how does age work in this show? What is your opinion? Let me know down below! My other big question is, what makes somepony considered a filly? Because in Twilight's BBBFF song she starts with the words "When I was just a filly" but the Flim Flam brothers call Applejack a filly in The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000. Maybe age works like cats where it changes depending on how many human years have passed.
  23. We all know the Hypogriffs are part pony, part griffin. But exactly what kind of pony does Skystar descend from? She appears to have enough strength to lift this big guy.
