Given how Spitfire and Fleetfoot are depicted later on, I'm guessing she showed up, shook dash's hoof and then told the soarin clones they needed to stop goofing around and come do something with her.

It's about beating the clocks.
You have two- one is the time, and one is power. One you cannot control, and one you can.
The only real threat comes when they poke their heads in the door, which you then need to shut.

As far as 3spooky6me, animatronics never creeped me out as a kid. In fact, I was fascinated by them. Thanks Jim Henson.

  It's just a cartoon, they need to bend the rules of logic, common sense, physics, etc to entertain.

BUT

What if they had a real world reason for the way they grip things?

Like what the video is showing you?

All ponies have these little hairs at the bottom of their hooves that act as a kind of super-Velcro that lets them hold just about anything. To avoid getting their hooves stuck on, say, grass or their own bodies, however, the hairs have to be willingly activated by the pony through choosing to want to pick something up.

So I hate to bring this up but does anyone else release the sad truth of Twilight Sparkles princess life. Judging from the experience of princess Celestia it seems that becoming a princess makes that pony immortal. The fact that Twilight is now princess and immortal means that she will watch as her friends and family grow old and eventually die. And yes ponies do get old based on Granny Smith. Even worse is the fact that Princess Candace will have to watch her beloved husband Shining armor die as well. I hate to put a damper on any brownies day but I just had to get that out otherwise I love the show

You're going to have to be clearer on what you mean.

If you mean license a fanfic or ask a fanfic writer to do a job just based on his fanfics, then no. They can't even read fanfics, so they aren't going to do any licensing on them.

However, someone who is a fan and wrote fanfics could still be hired to do something. The thing is, they can't just be a fanfic writer, they need to be someone who's actually trying to make a career out of their writing and applies for a job, possibly with a connection. A major reason Ted Anderson, a fan since season 1, got a job on the comics is largely because he was friends with a guy who knew a guy who knew the editor, and that gave him the chance to show some sample work and pitches. Another example I could think of for a different series would be current Sonic and Mega Man comics writer Ian Flynn, who used to write Sonic fan comics. He spent four years applying to Archie, sending in sample works that he kept on revising and improving on.

imouto = little sister

onii-chan = big brother
onee-chan = big sister

Note that "i" and "e" are pronounced as in Italian, Spanish, French, or basically any language except English, which somehow managed to fuck this up (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Vowel_Shift).
(E.g., "i" as in "radio", and "e" as in "résumé").

So, since season 4 has come and passed, I think its time for one of these seasonal threads!

rank the mane six, from 1 being your favorite to the sixth being your least favorite pony. This will of course have a different effect than just saying "XXXX is my favorite pony!" since being low on the a list counts just as much as Being number 1!
Lets get a good look at how people's views of the mane six has changed! :D

(will be posting in oat as well to get a good view of the chan!)

Favorite for what purpose? As a life partner, AJ. As a character, RD or maybe Rarity. As a singer, FS. As a princess, Twilight.

Screechie Pie is nowhere. She needs a lot of gentling-out character development to get back onto my list.

I present you... alternate interpretation! or otherwise known as character development.

Twilight is the independent, competitive evil genius who wants to take over the world and wants to learn magic for practical things.
Rainbow is like a Peter Pan but with a more mature suave personality, goes around the world visiting different aerial teams to get more skills. Eventually she forms her own squadron and still has enough time for adventuring.
Applejack goes on adventures, including sailing, spaghetti westerns, kicking wizards in the face, saving ponies, getting drunk, and often transforms into a dragon, skeleton, vampire, etc.
Fluttershy is basically Fluttershy+Applejack, but more intelligent and laidback while still delivering a buck. She lives on the farm.
Pinkie Pie often controls her own business; circus ringmaster, flying balloon ship, her own train, sweets factory, stuff like that.
Rarity gets ice powers along with her craftsmanship, and lives in a tower-like castle and has her own crystal mine. She's already a princess.

What do you think?

Does it ever bother you that Applejack and Rarity are constantly the least liked ponies of the mane cast? Sure when it comes to favorites, some ponies have to be on the last places and it seems like this order doesn't really change no matter how long the show keeps going. AJ and Rar seem to get some more hate too than other ponies. Both of them are called background ponies and boring and one dimensional (Huurr AJ is just apples apples apples, durrr Rar is just dresses dresses dresses). Even if they are not that popular, they too have their loving fans and they will be liked despite their overall popularity but does it still ever make you wonder why the other ponies get so much more love?

They can still like it and be proud of it while also seeing how it could be flawed.

>it's not a stretch to imagine that future assignments for Celestia will be handed over to them.
They're not given assignments on characters. The writers are the ones who pitch story ideas. The higher ups don't dictate who gets to write what characters, and they especially don't limit one character to just one team.

>And their Celestia is a foolish, selfish weakling who will gladly put her Kingdom in jeopardy for her own personal feelings. If Celestia appears again in future comics, she has a great chance of being that again.
And a lot of this seems to have been different than what they intended to come across but didn't explain or handle clearly. With feedback, they may be able to catch themselves from making similar mistakes.

Ok so first off, I really like RTM as an episode, it's definitely what I consider to be one of the best episodes of Season 4 and the best key episode by far. It did a lot of things right and only a few things wrong and gave us lots of great Rarity like all her episodes before. Overall, looking at the episode itself with no context, I think it did very well. But... I don't really think it makes sense as a key episode anymore, it doesn't make sense when I look at it through the lens of the rest of them.

So it was the first key episode, and despite even the concept of key episodes being "secret", a lot of us saw right away what was going on, or at least that the spool was Rarity's key for the box. But we didn't really have the whole context at the time.
See, the key episode formula is pretty solid.
1. A problem arises that, one way or another, causes a pony to try to solve it by painfully going against their element, usually because they believe following their element would make the problem worse.
2. The pony comes to a deeper understanding of their element, realizing that it can solve the problem and then using it to do so.
3. This inspires another character, who was not doing well by that element, to adopt it in their lives, and in gratitude gives the mane character an object which is of course the key.

Now of course there are variations. Twilight never really went against her element at all. Seabreeze was the one to inspire Fluttershy, not the other way around. But the most important and central part of all of these stories is the element involved. But looking back, and forward to the rest of the season... I simply don't see it in Rarity Takes Manehattan.

Ok, so there's definitely a lot of generosity in the episode, no doubt about that. There's a song about it, there's a whole city about generosity. But when it comes to the conflict, and the resolution of said conflict, I just don't see how generosity plays into it. I mean, Rarity generously offering her fabric to Suri causes the initial conflict, sure, but I don't recall her ever questioning whether she maybe shouldn't have done t

I don't really get what you're trying to say here.
Are you agreeing with Demonio that Twilight's Kingdom is a second Fluttershy Key episode because Discord? Or are you saying Magic of Friendship with Discord equals Twilight's Key episode?
>> No. 36775876
>>36775845
im saying that i really dont have much of a problem with twilight keys, because twilight is friendship, and discord appreciate not been throw on the trash after the betray.

im just saying that the keys mostly are given by characters which learn something from the main character. and discord didnt learn at that point.

but hey, i dont really care, is fine, it works for me.

i mean, i normaly dont protest about this kind of stuff.

i mostly have problems with stuff like highschool girls and making princesses on such a contrive manner just for the sake of following the standar on girls media, which at the start some people tried to not fall into that kind of stuff.

So discord being good and giving the answer to close the episode isnt much of a problem, even if dont follow the rest of the formula.
>> No. 36775877
>>36775863

I wasn't really *saying* either one, but:

Twilight inspired Discord to renew his commitment to friendship, thus earning her key. Fluttershy didn't inspire Discord to be more kind, and anyway she'd already earned her key.
