With the merger happening right before the new episode, I figure this is as good a time as any to post this. I'll try to make this as less about me as possible, since I know this folder isn't the place for life stories.

I used to be a pretty frequent poster here, was even semi-popular. Then Twilicorn happened, followed by EQG, and be being who I am, I kind of lost my marbles. Lashed out at people regularly, shamed them for liking the new changes, chastised people for liking S4 content. Was really just kind of a dick on a regular basis. It took someone very important in my life to show me how much what I was saying could hurt those closest to me, and how I needed to chill out. I had been posting on MLPChan on and off, because of their laxed rules and generally more laid back users. And it was only within the past month I became more active there, since I had finally come to terms with the show not being what I wished it would be anymore.

I really didn't want this merger to happen, just like I didn't want a number of things in MLP to happen. But both of them happened anyway, no matter how much I didn't want it. That's just how life works. But I'm hoping that I can find a fresh start here, as I'm hoping a lot of other people here want to as well.

While I admit I made a bunch of mistakes in my past, there's a number of people here who weren't exactly rational in their dicussions of the show as well. If someone stated that they disagreed with something or disliked something that was done in the show, some people would make the discussions personal, and try to shame others for not liking things. And I don't think that was fair. Just as someone has every right to say they like something, they also have the right to say they don't like something. And yes, I know there's always going to be that one person who steps out of line and decides to make it personal: don't do it yourself. Be the bigger poster, and remove yourself from the discussion. That's sort of a rule I'm setting for myself, that if I feel like someone's contradicting themselves to a certain point, or if they start to make it personal outside of the show discussion, then I'm done with them. You're not going to get an award for proving someone's ignorance, and they're never going to realize how ignorant they are if they're not listening to you, so why make a big spectacle out of it?

Bottom line: don't shame people for their differing (and sometimes unpopular) opin

Luna and Celestia need an episode focusing on them and their relationship.

Luna just got an epsiode and minor appearences despite being an interesting character and a fan favourite.

Celestia, despite being important to the plot, never really got explored as a character.

I think an episode like this would work really well.

Would you agree that this season has so far mainly focused on both Cutie Marks and Pancakes?

Could the Pancakes foreshadow something later in the Season?

Who would want to have a plate of those Pancakes topped with whipped cream and sprinkles for breakfast? I sure would; but alas, my breakfasts' have to have a substantial amount of protein, and Pancakes are all starches.

Remember that "The Interview" fiasco last year? And how North Korea supposedly hacked Sony and leaked those emails?

Well, wikileaks has a site now where you can search those emails. And there are several emails to be found about the MLP movie coming out in 2017.

Some interesting stuff, including the reveal of the villain's name, discussion on the first draft of the script, Sony's concern that it would end up being an extended episode of the show, how they initially wanted the directors of "Ice Age" to make it before deciding to stick with DHX, etc. etc.

That's not a leaked list, that's 100% bullshit, it has about as much credibility as me saying that episode 10 will be called Will They or Wotter They, focused on Fluttershy's sexual relationship with an Otter.

And I fail to see how Larson likes Celestia any more than any other writer. That wasn't really a character moment, that was just a funny little gag. And even then, that was back when Celestia had regular presence in the show.

Season vs. Season 2 (Episode 4) XylonLionheart!l7.O6DCdPw 36794894[View]

Now that I've watched this season's episode twice to form a better opinion, I feel confident enough to move on to the comparison. So, today we get to look at this set of episodes:

Season 1: Applebuck Season
Season 2: Luna Eclipsed
Season 3: One Bad Apple
Season 4: Daring Don't
Season 5: Bloom and Gloom

Let's see. I think this time I'm going to go with this:

Luna Eclipsed > Applebuck Season > Daring Don't > Bloom and Gloom > One Bad Apple

Is anybody surprised at my #1 choice? Luna is one of my favorite characters, and this might be her best showing. This episode is what made her better than any of the other princesses. It made her much more relatable than Cadence or Celestia. I would love to see another episode that humanizes her, or better still an episode that does that for Celestia! Come on, Hasbro! Five seasons and no Celestia episode?

Applebuck Season is the moment for me that the show really started to step things up. While I wouldn't give it a gold-star, this was the episode that showed the shows true potential, especially when it came to comedy. You could kind of draw a connection between the premiere with generation 1 and The Ticket Master with generation 2, but this is really where I feel the show earned its own identity. Plus I think this still might be Applejack's best episode.

Season vs. Season 2 (Episode 3) XylonLionheart!l7.O6DCdPw 36794174[View]

Okay, this one is going to be a bit rougher. I don't think there is a bad or even a mediocre episode in the mix here. Ranking this for me is going to be a bit tough. Well... I think I'll go with this:

Lesson Zero > Castle Sweet Castle > Castle Mane-ia > Too Many Pinkie Pies > The Ticket Master

Lesson Zero, to me, is Party of One done right. I know a lot of people love Party of One, but I find it to be just... alright. Lesson Zero, however, I find much funnier, and certainly the most entertaining of the crop we have today. Crazy Twilight is a treat to behold, and this episode may very well have Spike's best portrayal in the entire show. Gold star.

I'm a bit surprised that I'm putting Castle Sweet Castle here myself. There are some spots I find relatively average during the episode. It's entertainment to me is about on par with Castle Mane-ia. The reason it wins in the end, even if they could have been stronger, are the feels. Them feels can really endear an episode to me. That's the reason Sleepless in Ponyville is my favorite episode of Season 3.

I know that some people find Castle Mane-ia a bit bland, but for me, I find it plenty amusing throughout. I don't think there is a moment of boredom, even if there also any moments to make it stand out. This is one of my go-to episodes to point out that isn't anything special, but also doesn't have anything wrong.

Too Many Pinkie Pies has a good portrayal of Pinkie, somebody who really suffers when written poorly. Her clones might be crazy, but that is intentional here, and Pinkie should NOT be written like she is one of those clones. The solution of finding the real Pinkie is... really dark if you think about it too much. It's not last because I find it more entertaining than The Ticket Master (I keep using that word in this post).

Speaking of The Ticket Master, it is not a bad episode at all! Perhaps it is because it is such an early episode and I've seen it so many times, or maybe it is also still establishing all the characters and as such lacks much depth. Either way, I just find it sort of average to watch now. There's nothing that bothers me about it like Too Many Pinkie Pies, and yet... I feel like it has little personality compared to its competition. As I said before, when all the episodes are decent, it feels bad to put one in last place, but

Cheer me up? Anonymous 36794010[View]

Twilicorn ruined the show for me.

I went into S4 with an open mind, but I just couldn't like it. Every time Twilicorn appears on screen, I cringe a little. It's just so... stupid and pointless, you know? A constant reminder of the crap they're willing to pull to advertise their toys, disregarding how it fits (or doesn't fit) into the actual show.

The way they treated Twilight's friends in the finale really left a sour taste in my mouth... and the castle was like Twilicorn all over again. I started watching originally because the show used to be better than this. The train is meh, Cadence barely appears (and when she does she actually does stuff), but Twilicorn and the castle are being pushed into our faces all the time.

I can't get myself to watch S5, even though I'm still (somewhat) involved in the community. I'd like to be excited again but just thinking about it makes me sad. Help me rekindle the flames, guys.

TL;DR I'm disillusioned with the direction the show has taken, need cheering up. How do you manage to ignore all the bad and focus on the good? Is that even a healthy thing to do?

Ok, we know from the first 2 episodes that our new villein, Starlight Glimmer, has the magic to steal other ponies Cutie Marks and put them under glass.

However, do you think that Starlight Glimmer can give one Pony's cutie mark to another Pony? And if so, what do you think could happen if she did? Could it be a future episode (I don't know)?

Because it was rushed to get to Princess Sparkle, they missed an opportunity. I'd love to see Starlight randomize the cutie marks of the town. The mane six have to try to find Twilight's magic mark, but they are challenged with having different skills. It could be a learn to appeciate the talents of others moral.

According to the artist who created that, it was just an award named after Daring Do, like how the other thing displayed is Author of the Year, clearly an award.

Not to mention since it was only something the artist put in, the meaning of a small background detail is a lot different than the scripts made by the writers and approved by Hasbro.

Box Office Nother Nonymous (Element of Threadkilling) 36794956[View]

Tracking the Google Trends search-term figures for "My Little Pony" and "Friendship is Magic," I had concluded that interest in the show peaked in December 2013 and has been declining slowly ever since.

But if you add "pony" as a third search term (pic), you get a surprise. Searches for "pony" have always been more numerous than the other two, probably reflecting interest in IRL small horses. But ever since the show started in 2010, the "pony" and "My Little Pony" curves have run in pretty exact parallel -- which means that the small-horse searches are constant, and the bumps in the "pony" curve are generated by MLP fans.

Until this month. The April 2015 figures show a huge spike in the "pony" curve but not in the "MLP" curve. Why? Dunno-- but I figure it's new MLP fans using a one-word search term, and not livestock shoppers. If so, interest in the show is reaching new heights with the advent of S5!

Starswirl the bearded: fake ultimate hero of the MLP universe? Unlikeable Pony (element of being banned. again) 36794544[View]

#Spoiler
Just thinking, it seems like starswirl is starting to seem more and more like MLP's version of Mr. Satan with the backstories they have going for him.

There's all these legends of him being this great unicorn hero, but it seems like the thing he's being most characterized by lately is failure, with his accomplishments not being as grand as they'd seem.


Take for example the comic's explanation for why he knew so many spells: he didn't COME UP with them himself; rather he traded and shared for them with a near infinite number of alternate universes; he's not a researcher, he's a trader. The one thing he did was make the magical mirrors.

Further, the comic's take on his defeat of the dazzles shows that it wasn't some awesome act of heroism on his part; he basically screwed around, failed alot, and then just pushed them into his magical mirror thinking "I can't do this, I hope the Human world can". He LITERALLY was banking on the human world solving his problem for him.

This isn't even a headcanon, the comic directly stated that his "defeat" of the dazzles wasn't a victory but a failure due to not understanding friendship.

Finally, when we come to the Journal of the two sisters, the climax of it is more or less about his inability to continue helping to raise and lower the sun, leading to him putting all his faith in Celestia and luna.

that actually would be a very funny addendum to the lore; especially if they did an episode or comic where there was some artifact of starswirl's that would only work for someone of his bloodline and they had to put up with trixie as they attempted to get her to fix a problem.

Bulk Biceps in S5E3 cmaven555 36794621[View]

I just watched "Castle Sweet Castle", and it was certainly quite an episode; yep, the crew still has the magic in them.

Now, what was your immediate reaction when Bulk Biceps suddenly jumped into the scene?

To me, it was very "eye popping" like a lot of the other "eye popping" takes on the show, yet it was also priceless like hearing Nibblit become the "Love Doctor" on Pound Puppies.

Didn't we predict that anyway?

Did Starlight Glimmer believe in equality the way she preached it? Rambling!Rose//pzOM 36794502[View]

I caught up with the new season a bit later than most but found the time to watch the first two episodes of season 5, and I have a hard time deciding whether Starlight really was being genuine about cutie marks hurting everyone or if it was just bullshit to get ponies' cutie marks for some other, as of yet unknown, reason.

After their little song and dance she said to herself (and the audience)
> Well, this will certainly provide a boost to our little community. When the rest of Equestria sees that a princess gave up her cutie mark to join us, they'll finally understand what we're trying to accomplish.
which to me makes it sound like she really wants the rest of Equestria to just come and agree with her, and that she genuinely believes in cutie marks causing trouble. Also of note is the word WE in "what we're trying to accomplish". However, what makes me second guess myself simply based on this scene alone is her facial expression, which went from seemingly normal and happy to somewhat, uh, sinister. And the foreboding sound in the background really didn't help make her seem genuine. Her words and actions seemed to somewhat contradict each other. If she was speaking to somepony else or the M6 were within hearing distance this would be more easily explained, but the way the scene is framed makes it clear nopony else heard what she said.

But. When she forcefully removed the cutie marks of the Mane 6 it seemed to be clear she didn't have everypony's interests in mind. I mean, before she'd specifically said that a princess who gave up her cutie mark to join the village would help others understand. Starlight would have to be a lunatic to think Twilight wouldn't mention what happened if anypony, like, saaaay Luna or Celestia, came asking where she was. Then again, maybe she was and that's that, but that takes all the fun out of overthinking, so I'll ignore that possibility. Starlight locking them up in the shack to be brainwashed or whatever also seemed like a very interesting way of handling the situation if she believed in what she taught.

Also, the fact that none of the villagers commented or looked uncomfortable with the ridiculousness of what Starlight was doing was a bit bothersome. Night Glider was the one who said the cutie unmarking was a beautiful experience. Party Favour and Sugar Belle seemed to agree, and it s

>What are you referring to here? It was her magic she used to remove their cutie marks, no? The second part refers to Double Diamond being able to get the cutie marks from the vault somehow, though, and that is a very, very good point to make. Also, what are these external forces you are referring to?
1) She needed magic to remove cutie marks, and when they're not magically restrained, they fly off. There is the consistency that although it is a "vault", it is glass, plain glass. The jars also restrained the cutie marks.

2) how did the non-magic-using pony collect the cutie marks into jars, and open the glass, presuming he did not use magic? The others had to break into the vault, literally.

3) External factors. So far we haven't had a villain which dispatches episodic minions. Reasonably speaking that's a possible upcoming villain. She could have been holding the cutie marks as some source of power for another character, or even could have been fooled herself, by the greater villain teaching her the cutie-mark stealing spell, so they would eventually have them for themself.

If she was taking cm for herself, she'd be more inclined to have a kinda fetish for them, which she did. If she was a minion, she would've been likely to keep the most power more secure, or even show regret or wariness from holding the "most powerful" marks with her.

Its possible all you need to keep the marks from flying off is just to keep them contained in a solid and sealed object like a jar or whatnot.

Given how the vault seems designed to be able to slot individual parts of it open, its not impossible for him to just put a jar to where the opening is going to be, slot that specific part open via a lever or something, and get the mark into the jar without leaving an opening for it to fly out of, before covering it with a jar lid.

Keep in mind, those are UNNATURAL cutie marks though; a natural cutie mark shouldn't be able to do anything like that.
