Watching this episode again, I feel like I didn't give it enough credit the first time I watched it. While nothing spectacular, it does have a lot charm to it that's nice. Lots of simple interaction between the main characters that's entertaining.

My main gripe with it still is that the show continually tries to pound in our heads how different each of these characters are and are friends in spite of it. "These are Rainbow Dash decorations so they have to be about Daring Do or the Wonder Bolts. It's Fluttershy decorations so they have to be animal related." I get the idea of the episode is that they all try to make their own cozy home instead of a cozy one for Sparkler, but I really feel they really had to push that they would do this down our throats to make this episode happen.

But even with those problems, its still a nice watch with some great moments. Like Twilight kicking Angel Bunny. That will never not be hilarious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHhw7MdsZh0

Thinking about it, the Upcoming movie has the mane six having to head to a sea pony city to get information on the Villain due to them being the ONLY ones still around from when the villain first dealt with equestria, yeah?

I wonder if the unicorn here is trying specifically to erase old history books so there's no information about the villain of the movie, and the other history books that get altered or destroyed are just collateral in his true goal?

Season 6
The season's theme is "Explore Equestria".
Episode title: Flutter Brutter. Definitely the episode where Fluttershy's brother makes an appearance. Expected to air early in the season, at least before June 7th.
A picture was shown of Pinkie, Rainbow Dash, and Maud at Manehattan. Very likely an actual screencap.
What was reported from Toy Fair 2016:
>During the Toy Fair 2016 closed door press event, a new season 6 animatic with a griffon named Gabby was revealed. It was strongly hinted that griffons could get cutie marks, and the episode revolves around that.
>And joining her, there were apparently some new dragon chracters in the slide. We heard rumors they were Hearthswarming based, but can't confirm that. One looked female.
>New Hearthswarming Episode Song Details:
>Background ponies team up with mane 6 to decorate>Derpy dropped some boxes, annoyed Rarity, plopped a Christmas star on her head, then hid in a tree branch
>All the mane 6 and CMC Sing
>Christmas dragons
Chiara Zanni, VA of Daring Do, has said that she recorded an episode back in July.
John de Lancie was involved in recording at least one episode, and that seems likely to be a two parter.

>AND THEN larson left, Haber took the reigns, and Starlight turned into Broly with a shittier backstory.
I disagree with that (except the shitty backstory). The idea that Starlight, a regular unicorn, had her whole life's work ruined by 6 random ponies that were special and connected by the very thing she despised is a really cool villain motivation. Starlight being a spiteful pony who holds grudges works well. Emotions seem to fuel magic in Equestria, and I like to believe that Starlight tapped into her latent magic pool because of her desire for revenge.

Broly sucks cause of his weak motivations and just simply being born power incarnate.

Pinkie said the slumber party was at her house in Rainbow Rocks, and Maud was also seen there, so presumably yes they do live in the same house.

And unless otherwise stated later, it doesn't seem like she lives with the Cakes. Pinkie doesn't need to rent a room since she's still in high school and would presumably still live with her parents, and Maud has no reason to also live at Sugar Cube Corner. At most, Sugar Cube Corner's building is shown to have more than one floor, so it could be that the restaurant only takes up the bottom floor and the upper floors have apartments, one of which Pinkie and Maud live in. Just like in Littlest Pet Shop where the main character, Blythe, and her dad live in an apartment above the titular pet shop.

One of the ONLY episodes that I'd accept as a grand finale to the show. The other being Best night ever.

I'm not a big fan of Twilight power hours, but this is one episode where I found it palatable, mostly due to treating the others as important in the end, throwing them a massive bone in the throne room, and they had some good interaction in the beginning at the library (AJ asking if twilight needed any help researching really warmed my heart).

And While I know that people Find it too edgy for the show (This seems to be more of a recent trend though; When it first aired, people LOVED this shit), I LOVED the adventure aspect of this.

I'm sorry, I know maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree for more magical girl adventures and DBZ shenanigans, but I really liked the adventure aspect of the show, and have been looking for more fighting in it, and really enjoyed the Combat. Now, I DIDN'T enjoy that it was all about twilight, but from a visual aspect, I loved it.

The baby girly horse show

Toothless 36822986

My personal issue with action and adventure in FiM is that the show can never really go all out in a way that would need to make it worthwhile. Equestria as a possible fantasy setting could do all of this stuff quite well actually. It wouldn't be hard to flesh out the unique magics of each race either. I feel unless they went to at least the level of Avatar: The Last Airbender I don't feel action would work as anything but modular scenes to show struggle between the good guys and the bad guys. And I would rather they dedicate time to things like character interaction some of the more enjoyable parts of the show rather than spending a lot of time on exposition about the more magical aspects of Equestria.

Now with all that said, the simplistic action that is shown in the show is enjoyable as it is, since it doesn't become the end all be all of the show and is more so there for exposition and getting points across while working as modular scenes to fill up the remaining time. It's fun watching them tear through mountains as to see just how powerful this whole thing for us as viewers to understand the impact of Tirek having all that magic. So that in the end we know just how potent the "rainbow power" that shows up in the end truly is.

Lost my trip due to a drive crash a while back, but ...
Thought I'd say why I haven't been around.
A Youtube reactor that used to be my friend, completely raged when I called out another channel for being fake (which it clearly was). He made death threats and promised to get all his subs to hunt me down.
So yeah, I guess you all were right I should stay away from react-channels ...
Anyways, I've decided to not participate in the fandom any more, as I'm literally afraid of my life. God knows if he has some insane norwegian friends that can find out where I live ... he and his fans are insane enough to harm me ...
So, sorry for being gone for a long time, but this is the reason. I might be on here with a different nick and not reveal who I am.
Ponychan, love ya all! You are the best of the fandom, but I'm pretty damn sure he got some fans around here ...
Also, it's Bronyburningaxe that has done this campaign towards me, arranging downvote-fests and making several of his fans to threaten me on my life, simply because I callled out a fake "reactor" that happened to be his friend.

While I'm fairly certain this is an overreaction, I recommend you just give him time to cool his head. Take a break and participate in other activities in the mean time then get back to it later so you can make amends. If this person can't handle a little bit of criticism from the internet, then so be it and you move on and go else where.

With all that said, nothing wrong with reaction channels and such. They may not be the pinnacle of entertainment, but it's nice to see how other people react to things you enjoy in a manner similar to watching a how a friend reacts to you showing them something you like. Also fake reactions can are fine as well. If anything a good fake reaction speaks to the person's acting abilities.

It specifically notes history books. And the page's words are recapping the history of the two sisters from the beginning of the series. I wonder if the villain's plan more involves using those books to do some kind of rewrite on history.

That being said, I wouldn't mind that. A past arc would be interesting.
On another note: Really liked the cheese sandwhich/pinkie comic. I didn't like cheese previously, but his characterization and interaction with pinkie in this was really good. Loved the bit about how a conga line isn't a very good way to explore, but he was trying to keep the kids close.

Princess Celestia had 1000 years... !gEapIYWEa2 36822908[View]

The reason for the bitterness in Princess Luna's heart was because ponies slept through and shunned the night. Princess Celestia wrote the history book, so she knew this was true. She had the motive, and the opportunity, and all the time in the world. She didn't want to lose her sister again. To prevent that tragedy from happening, she needed there to be ponies who did not shun the night, and Princess Celestia had 1000 years to work with...

Those are all very fascinating ideas. I wouldn't say creating bat ponies is entirely a good idea, but I hesitate to immediately condemn it. I wouldn't be too upset to learn that my race was created out of Princess Celestia's love for her sister, at least.

I don't think you understand how canon works.


I could honestly care less if bat ponies are canon, but not much less. This is more about >implying >implications. If there's an episode where Luna's guards say "Oh no this is totally just a costume" and Celestia's guard says "yeah, and our armor is enchanted to turn our hair all the same color and also make us all stallions" it won't make this idea any less awesome.

It's one of those weird things where a lot of it comes down to the history of the race. Which would need to be largely fleshed out in some sort of fanon.

The view I'm taking most of my ideas about bat ponies from is The Story of Twilight Glow where they are simply creatures of the night that are normal ponies turned into bat ponies throughout history. Rumors and myths of vampire ponies and such that more or less have some truth to them. They start to make themselves known with the return of the princess of the night. Granted the canon and this fanon split really fast so the two aren't much to compare, but still, it's fun to look at the ideas on history leading up to it.

Loose Ends Heavy Mole 36822776[View]

So Twilight has become a princess, Rainbow Dash is in the Wonderbolts, the CMC have their cutie marks, Rarity has shops in Canterlot and Manehattan, all the major villains of the series have been reformed or banned, and the disparate kingdoms of Equestria are united in a golden age of friendship. Kinda wondering what's left for the pones to do. I mean there are seven EQG movies coming out in 2017 so the writers seem confident on that front. But what of good ol' pony land?

Personally the only thing I can see them doing is spending the season tying up the final loose end, viz. bringing Spike and Rarity together in a sexual consummation which will provide fitting closure to the long-running series (let's face it, six years is old age for most cartoon shows). Of course you won't see their coitus on-screen--we've learned over the years that the writers at Hasbro are masters of implication. Just as a pair of meteors was used to symbolize the deceased status of Applejack's parents, and conjured visions of their horrifying immolation in a barn fire, so too will the writers think of a whimsical method to signal Spike and Rarity's gritty copulation without forcing it directly on the kids. Perhaps a sweaty buckball game is taking place outside.

I imagine there will be an episode where Discord comes to bestow veiled sexual advice on Spike. It'd be the perfect opportunity for a song and maybe a Jim Carey reference. Maybe one of the pets catches him in the act--Angel?--and Spike has to go through some whacky antics to keep the bunny from divulging the secret to Fluttershy.

Or maybe it can be a celebrated occasion with one of those stained glass windows with allusions to Indiana Jones? That'd be a good way to end the series.

Anyways what do you guys think? What the hell are they going to do now?

It's not really a matter of if it works, but rather a choice of direction that the writers took that I disagree with. When I first saw Sunset, I doubted she could be friends with the mane 6, not out of spite or not having a desire to have friends, but she always felt the type to have one maybe two close friends she could trust. Pinkie and all of them aren't really akin to close individual bonds, but are a group of friends instead.

It might just be the fanon exposure, but the fact that they make Sunset get along with all of them never felt quite right to me.

New to Mlp and character and universe discusion TheImmortalLegend 36822562[View]

Recently I just watched the first two episodes of MLP FIM season one. I don't remember exactly but I was watching a YouTuber who does MLP reactions(I didn't watch his videos for that though). I watched one of his MLP reactions and afterwards I guess I thought I might give the show a try. So I watched the first two episodes.And they really surprised me. I wasn't expecting a interesting fantasy world with unique characters. There are obviously deeper fantasy worlds(ASOIF For example) but I think the shows interesting so far in how it deals with it. Instead of chopping off limbs MLP uses comedy and friendship to solve its problems. Which if that was by itself personally I wouldn't have been able to stand those first two episodes. What does make it interesting is the characters. They have unique personality and surprisingly for me the characters are actually funny. Also I have watched a little bit of the next couple of episodes. And I get the impression that there are a lot of filler episodes. Which is fine even some of my favorite animie series(not that I've watched many) have filler episodes. Still though like I said before I think what makes them interesting is the actual characters. Already have a general impression of the show. Mostly because I spoiled slot of plot elements from season 3 and on. Which is fine for me I know I will still enjoy those episodes. Anyways I just wanted to say why I decide to start watching MLP.

Well just having a character be a fashion designer and interested in fashion in itself isn't inherently a bad thing. One of the major messages of the show is that there's no wrong way to be a girl, so being more traditionally feminine and into fashion shouldn't be an exception but rather embraced just as much as the other character types.

And I'm not even sure if it's fair to call it stereotypical to have her be a fashion designer. I think there's been more of this type of character after FiM, like Blythe from LPS, but prior to 2010 it was far more common for the fashionista character to just be a follower and a consumer of fashion while there would rarely, if ever, be a fashionista who designed and produced their fashion.

Not seeing the issue, Honestly, Rarity is a MASSIVE breath of fresh air.

rarity Cares about Fashion, not fashion TRENDS. She's an artist not a groupy, which is a huge break from the norm: in your normal show Rarity would be the bitchy, vapid character who just follows trends without thinking, does whatever the magazines without thinking "does this REALLY look good?", and would be the cliche "Friend that nobody actually likes" of the group.

But in FIM? Rarity is NOT afraid to stand up against the grain if she thinks something doesn't look good, thinks for herself, and is a fashion SETTER, not a follower.

Rarity is an incredibly good character, I honestly don't see why you think she's such a bad character JUST because she likes fashion, that's not inherently bad.
Like >>36822917 said, "there's many ways to be a girl", and that INCLUDES traditionally feminine characters like rarity and Fluttershy.

The True Domicile of the Dragon Species MilkChocolateCrane!nGGHowUMN. 36822965[View]

Dragon Lord Thorn addresses the dragons he summoned as "Dragons of Equestria". Yet, several scenes in the exact same episode seem to disprove this, (see image).

I am well aware of the official map of Equestria as seen here:http://www.equestriadaily.com/2015/10/official-map-of-equestria-updated.html

^Judging by that the "Dragon Lands" should be located in the bottom left-hand corner.

I went back and watched Dragon Quest in order to potentially sort out the contradicting statements I found in Gauntlet of Fire, but that proved even more confusing (see left hand side of image).

Dragons migrate TO the Dragon Lands very rarely. Dragons are summoned by the Dragon Lord TO the Dragon Lands on occasion. Where are they migrating FROM? This is the question I seek an answer to.

If we take into consideration what transpired in the S1 episode Dragonshy, we can deduct that it is not normal for full-grown dragons to take up residence in Equestria as a whole. In Owl's Well That Ends Well, Spike stumbles upon a full grown dragon's cave. Judging by the facts that Spike was walking on foot, and not for very long, we can clearly assume it was relatively nearby Ponyville.

^This seems to imply that Dragons are generally not welcome in Equestria, yet some manage to ignore these unspoken to varying degrees of success. Now once again, the question is where are these dragons supposed to reside, if Equestria is off limits? Judging by their flight patterns during migration, and how they tend to stay in a straight line until they reach their destination, it's likely they come from somewhere around the Northwest of Equestria. They pass right over Ponyville, so you can use that to determine their trajectory.

^Correction in the above post, I meant to say the dragon lands are located in the bottom RIGHT hand corner. "unspoken" should be "unspoken rule(s)", etc. Editing posts doesn't seem to work, i'm afraid.

Anyway, are we simply supposed to believe that Twilight Sparkle could teleport herself, 2 other ponies and Spike HALFWAY ACROSS EQUESTRIA!? Remember, this is pre-winged princess Twilight we are talking about. Hell, if you look at the season 4 finale, when Twilight absorbed all three Alicorns' magical powers, that was the only other time we have seen her teleport long distances (which was both out of her control and not nearly as far as this instance in Dragon Quest).

^There is no way this is possible, right? In the image you can see that Twilight is able to teleport all of them from a spot which should be very close to the bottom right of the Equestrian map ALLLL the way to immediately outside of the Everfree forest. Hax, much? Or just blame Merriwether Williams? :O

Points for the word "ergo" and for PP offering Twilight freak-out lessons. Good unbearably slow timing on the cringe stuff. I was also glad to see a renaissance in grovelling on one's belly as a sign of Equestrian respect.

But I'd like to hear the real words to the Cloudsdale anthem someday.

Well, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree, because I just completely disagree :/

I found every single time that rarity sperged out on magical power and yelled out a line great, and her Acting like she was on drugs when spike took her book was really enjoyable.

I liked some of Ra-Ra's histrionics: the streaming mascara, the tic in the orbicularis oculi. What I didn't like about this episode was the amazing tastelessness of most of Rarity's "improvements." Her alterations in the book cover, the puppet theater, and RD's flying kimono were cool, and the snootification of the kids' party was funny; but the other changes she made mostly consisted of slathering everything with gold and sparkly multicolored jewels. It's like she was channelling Donald Trump.

But maybe that's aimed at the 8-year-old target audience.

Which twilight do you like best? Unlikeable pony 36822607[View]

Alright, truth time:

Which twilight do you like better, princess twilight or Sci-twi?

Got to admit, while I really didn't like twilight in Friendship games, I really warmed up to her in LOE; they played up her adorkable traits alot more and toned down some of the more cringey "outsider" aspects of her, making her one of the better parts of the movie.

On the other hand, I do have to admit that twilight in Episodes like Top bolt and Testing testing 123 was FANTASTIC, but I feel she drops down massively in other episodes (Twilight feels like she has severe hit/miss chemistry problems to me where she rocks it with certain ponies like Dash, and just fails with others like Fluttershy)

>Completely untrue. Go look at S5. Twilight had JUST as much focus as the others and was equally represented and focused on in slice of life.
Isn't that pretty much what I just said?

comedic fanfiction idea: something goes wrong with the portal & pony twilight is stuck living with her counterpart for the whole summer

Rarity Thread Toothless 36822603[View]

To set the mood:

Talk about Rarity, what you like about her, what you dislike about her. Her best moments, her worst. Characters she works well with, who she doesn't work well with. What you would like to see from her in future episodes. Just talk about anything and everything Rarity.
