She reacted that way likely because she already knew what EQG was going to be: a cliche and generic "high school" cartoon, AKA the same shit as every other girl cartoon, with the same tired old tropes and bad writing and everything else that comes along with no-effort girl cartoons.

Faust wanted to get away from that crap, make something new and different. She didn't want to make another "girl cartoon" that's all about school and fashion and lusting over boys. So of course, when her creation gets twisted and perverted into the very thing she was trying to NOT do, why wouldn't she be pissed?

MLP has been weak since S1 Anonymous 36827625[View]

I haven't watched the show in a while (didn't make it past season 5), and I hear a lot of people complaining about the direction/writing of the new seasons compared to season 1.
But then I started thinking on it, and realized there is not a single memorable episode, or character, or quote in the entire show.

On a personal level, I started watching S1 because the ponies were cute, and I found out it was an OK cartoon and not just a soulless cash grab like the Barbie movies. That said, the show was still pretty weak.
I don't remember S1 making me laugh (beyond a chuckle), the characters were pretty uni-dimensional when they were first introduced and they remained weak to the end despite the little development they got. The whole Nightmare Moon thing made me cringe actually, episodes like the Buffalo or the Owl one are also pretty shit, and S1 has one of the most hated episodes in the entire series, to the point were Lauren Faust had to apologize.

The next seasons are the same too, they got funnier sometimes, but they never did anything that would endure beyond the show. When you get down to it, the show is pretty forgettable: you can't quote it like Spongebob, and speaking of that, it never reached Spongebob in writing quality (or other shows), not even when it was at its peak.

So in resume, I watched it for the cute pony butts and deceived myself into believing it was something more than a mediocre cartoon.

Other Zebras? Meisterburg!oRT4jqzTBU 36827616[View]

So, we've all been watching MLP for many seasons now, but there's one character I think needs some more background info: Zecora.
Maybe I haven't seen enough episodes with her in them, but with all the ones she's ever been in, even in her first appearance in the series, I still wonder: where did Zecora come from? And if zebras do exist in Equestria, then where are the other zebras? Or is Zecora the only one? Because in almost every episode I've seen with her in it, that information is never really brought up.

Grand-daddy Villain? Meisterburg!oRT4jqzTBU 36827858[View]

If there's one thing I love about the MLP series, is its cast of villains. Because there have been so many already, we can compare them to one another to see which is superior overall, more powerful, or more likable. Thus far, however, while the villains all have their own unique style and power, I think many people in Ponychan can agree there is one villain that is definitely OP: Discord. With the exception of Tirek tricking him or the Changlings stripping his abilities, Discord could beat virtually anyone or anything with the snap of a finger. Ever since he first came into the spotlight as a deity of chaos, he has been guaranteed the ability to do whatever he pleases, with power that we may not even be able to measure.
So the question comes to shove: can there ever be a villain that an equal Discord's abilities (without a plot tool to disable Discord) or, and even grander question: be the grand-daddy of all MLP villains that can even bring Discord to his knees?

Now, I personally love crafting MLP villains on my own, and as I've developed thus far, I have Havok: spirit of destruction, who Discord could only contain but never defeat or eliminate, and Hailstone, who may be magical as a villain, but not have the same force a deity may have.

My ultimate goal to is craft a villain who would be able to blow canon villains like Discord or fan-made villains like Havok out of the water. In other words, I could use some advice on possibly making the MLP equivalent to Thanos, the grand-daddy villain of the Marvel universe

Discord's actually not all powerful, and he can't do anything he wants to with the snap of a finger, but the one thing he is really good at is convincing people that he's all powerful, and can do anything he wants to with the snap of a finger.

Meh, all I want is a 1-2 Episode cameo and a casual mention. There’s big story potential there and it boosts both brands.

unlikeable pony 36828006

She's very popular. So I could see them wanting to put her into pony in G5 at some point, and her fans would like to see her in G4, which is always money in the bank (Hence why she's going to return to equestria in the upcoming EQG plotline and talk to celestia before returning to the human world to fix the problem).

And she didn't exist to take twilight's place, they didn't just excise twilight from the series; She TOOK twilight's place as central leader, but that's more because they were able to Manipulate human twilight's role to be different and sunset already had some momentum.

Honestly, I DON'T want her in G4 pony simply because she can't really work well without being redundant. They were able to alter Human twilight and her focus to allow Sunset to work well, but that's not really an option in the pony world, especially with only S8 and S9 left.

I fully 100% expect her to show up and join the group in G5 as a mane seven, after serving as the dragon to one of the villains (Like Nightmare moon) for a season.

Well okay, full episode leaks will diffuse the hype, and that really would screw things up. It's better if we all watch the episode at roughly the same time, so leaking that shit is not cool. But censoring that stuff just makes the problem worse.

Like everyone wanted to talk about the MLP movie, but everyadmin on derpibooru wanted to ban all awareness of its leak, so deleted all pictures along with discussion. If with these leaks, every website does that, it could make the episodes totally flop, as if nobody noticed them at all, because all the excitement got deleted.

Birthday song Anonymous 36827595[View]

Has anyone noticed how different Fluttershy's behaviour is in this video?

I'd like to point this out and review it a bit if you'll let me.
I'd also like some screencappers to cap Fluttershy's expressions from the video and upscale them in HD.

Fluttershy's expressions, dialogue+adlibbing and voice sounds very similar to S1 rather than S2-S7.
She no longer sounds anxious, in fact she sounds less autistic than her S1 version.
Sadly Pinkie Pie's behaviour is still just as retarded and awful as in S2-S7.
The MLP theme song starts playing like it used to do back in S1.

Her wings stay upright, most of her poses are taken from S1, but her expressions are also from S1. Notice her eyelids coming up, notice her tiny mouth, her little head gestures, her reactions and her body poses, but especially her eyes. Notice how her eyes actually follow the target without blinking.

The pupils and iris cover the entirety of her eye sockets, compared to Pinkie's ugly eye expressions which always expose too much sclera. The enlarged pupils also serve to make the ponies look cuter.
