Closure With the show coming to an end after just one more season, it's pretty much inevitable that many unanswered questions brought up by the series will remain by the finale. What are some such issues you most wish will be addressed by the final season? The fate of Chrysalis? Some resolution to Spike and Rarity? Celestia and Luna's origins?

Personally, I hope they have an episode that explains why Dash and Fluttershy moved to Ponyville. The few details we have seem like they could tell a great story, but it would be a shame if none of it went addressed.

Working horse breeds From a story in the Sun (UK tabloid):

"The report examined 50 popular children's TV shows for their inclusivity, and the negative or positive nature of on-screen representation ... only nine per cent of material viewed showed working-class families, with mansions and palaces commonplace in children's TV.

"Despite its effort to represent LGBTQ+ the report said this lapse is "demonstrated in My Little Pony, where the unintelligent, 'working-class' goat characters are given strong Southern US accents"."

I find it hard to believe that the report's authors actually watched the show if they identified Big Mac and Applebloom as goats. But... is there anything to this? Which is more stupid and uncouth-- the working class in MLP, or the report's authors?

Princess Celestia had 1000 years... 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...

Princess Celestia created the bat ponies.

Cozy Glow is Best Friend Cozy Glow's evil plan is to reform Tirek! She wants to take what she learned about friendship and share it with the worst of society, as a selfless act to make Equestria a better place. Sure she's deluded and probably egomaniacal when she thinks she can succeed where everypony else failed, but if she's trying to get in her pen pal's good graces just to show what a great friend she can be, that explains everything.

She'd commit some terrible crime like sucking all the magic out of Equestria, knowing it was complete lunacy to do so, knowing that she'd get caught and defeated. She'd pretend to be totally unrepentant, and completely unhinged, (and she's really good at pretending to be what she's not), so that ponies would lock her up and throw away the key. She lied when she said she wanted to be the empress of friendship, precisely so she could get locked up with Tirek. That's why she was so triumphant in her cage there. Her goal was never to conquer Equestria, but to become the best friend anypony could possibly be, and how better to do that than to befriend the one creature who has never been a friend to anybody? And now Tirek is at her mercy, and it's only a matter of time until he submits to her friendship. Until Grogar f-ed everything up. That's how Cozy really thinks friendship works, and that's exactly what she was trying to do. There's no other explanation for her actions!

Where are these episodes coming from? (non-spoilers i think) Quick question since I don't know where else to ask but how are some people even finding the early release epsiodes? I googled everywhere for Going to Seed before it aired today and the next two episodes but all I could find were 1 minute clips and people saying they've watched it (which I was too afraid to look into further in case of spoilers). So what are these folks' sources? And are they all in Italian?

The Nadir The comments on last week's episode have been criticized for being needlessly, over-dramatically harsh on an ep that was, at worst, uneven and average overall. Fair enough. What is the true bottom of the barrel, and why? What episode sticks out in your mind as the absolute worst so far? Was it defective in its concept, plotting, writing, graphics, music, acting, or what? Give us a base standard of comparison to temper our impatience with mediocrity in these Last Days.

Throughout the entirety of Season 8, how many of her actions were intended to be interpreted by the viewer as premeditated?

Does she ever make a genuine mistake or is it all an act? For example, benign "mistakes" like her knocking over the red paint in "Marks for Effort". Did the writers intend for this to be taken as something she did deliberately (perhaps as an innocuous way to grow closer with the CMC whilst remaining perceptually bumbling/helpless in their collective conscious)? Speaking of the CMC, what was the purpose in helping them gain access to the School of Friendship? It was ultimately through the CMC's intervention that Tirek's master plan was thwarted, yet I see little-to-no benefit for Cozy in this instance. Likewise, why point Twilight directly to the Friendship University if she was secretly supplying Flim & Flam with lessons to help the competition prosper? She was clearly in charge of the mail, so why not dispose of the flyers instead? Also, was it ever stated when exactly Cozy and Tirek began communicating with one another? How many of her actions were fueled by her innate aptitude for manipulation, and how many were simply following Tirek's instruction?

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, official nostalgia thread. The end of the line! Intro; This thread is mostly for S1/S2 Oldfags who want to reminisce about both the show and fandoms past, considering the recent announcement of the S9 being the last season, thus bringing G4 to an end. Anypony is welcome to join the discussion, even New fags, as long as you're respectful to some of the shows veterans.

In this thread we talk about/share our favourite episodes, movies, shorts, songs, animations, fan-fictions, fan-art, toys, etc, that are in any way related to G4. As well as talking about the impact G4 has had on our lives and/or the lives of those around us. I'm going to make regular updates to this thread, and I suggest that everypony else do the same.

End of the line celebrations; I'm personally planning to go back to season one, so I can watch every episode from the show in order, again. (I plan to make thread updates about this as I go along.) I suggest you do the same, but don't rush it. Remember this is about reappreciating, the more thine you take the better.

Q&A; What are you guys doing to celebrate the end of the show? (As I said rewatching the show. But I'll also go back and look at some of the old fan content.)

Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here? (Definitely! I'll probably stay here for a good few years to come, at least.)

When did you join the fandom? (Early to mid season 2/early 2012.)

Do you still watch the show? (Yes, but nowhere near as much as I used to.)

What is your favourite episode/season? (There are too many good episodes and seasons for me to answer this question.)

Who are your favourite ponies? (Lyra, Twilight, and Luna.)

Ask your questions, along with any answers you give.

Does anyone else's favorite character change depending on the season of the show? Whenever someone asks for my favorite pony, I genuinely struggle to give a concise answer.

If I say "Pinkie Pie" people assume I also like the screechy, flanderized vexation of the spirit she devolved into. Sweetie Belle is still fairly enjoyable, but not anywhere near as much as her appearances in seasons 2~4; I might even go as far as to say she has become a teensy bit bland in recent seasons. I had a brief honeymoon phase with Twilight after she attained God-hood due to her overall shift to more quirky/ awkward yet still endearing personality traits. But even then, that aspect was soon eclipsed by the newly reformed Starlight. With only one season left to go, I think it's safe to say that neither Cozy Glow nor Ocellus will overtake Glim-glim completely, meaning that the latter will likely remain in my #1 spot for the longest duration out of any character to date. But thinking back to how utterly obsessed I was with Pinkie back when I first discovered the show in 2011, or my budding adoration for Sweetie Belle for what seemed like an eternity, it is hard to compare that level of affection to what I feel for Starlight currently. Sure, she's by far the most consistently enjoyable character to watch post-S5 and I look forward to pretty much any screen-time she gets... but I suppose I just don't feel the same level of "passion" for her as I did for PP & SB back in the early days.

For the sake of reference, I am not one of those people who thinks FiM has been getting worse and worse as time goes on. Personally, my ranking of the seasons would be something like this:
5>4>6>7=8>3=1>2. So, my lack of enthusiasm for Starlight Glimmer clearly isn't a result of poor seasonal quality, at least not from my perspective.

/pony/‘s Last Hurrah As we head into the final season, I think it’d be nice if everyone from throughout /pony/‘s history stopped by in the series finale thread to say hey for one last time, bid FiM farewell, and say what the show meant to them. I’m posting this now because I know how slow this board is, and I expect old faces will probably pop in at least once between now and then, and will hopefully see this.

I remember back in the golden era of FiM, our episode threads could get over a thousand posts. We were a pretty vibrant community, and while I don’t expect us to get near that again, it’d be great if our last episode thread was something to remember.

So whether you watch the show still or not, even if you got off after season 2 or 3, keep it in the back of your mind to post here in the series finale thread, which will most likely be some time around October.

Twilight Sparkle is a Mary Sue? I like Twilight Sparkle, and don't really see how she can be a Mary Sue. Protagonist, sure, but the only episode where she seemed really "Sueish" was Magical Mystery Cure. Otherwise, she isn't a blatant self insert of either the writers or Tara Strong. Heck she isn't anywhere remotely like Tara. She isn't considered beautiful, but more importantly she isn't considered *remarkable* in appearance, at most she's described as a little scrawny. She has an ordinary eye color (for a pony) and she's a terrible dancer.

I'm just reading through this and trying to figure out where people would think of her like a Mary Sue: http://katfeete.net/writing/sue.php

Princess Mi Amore Cadenza is off the charts, but Twilight barely registers. Even Applejack gets a higher score, what with the dead parents, and the freckles, and winning an award for being the most well liked pony in all of Ponyville.

There aren't any prophecies about Twilight, specifically. There are ones about the main 6, but the prophecy stuff cuts off pretty much once Twi gets princess'd. I mean, I guess she's royalty now, but she was born to just ordinary parents, who weren't abusive or anything. She's also taking a more passive, supportive role in the background as a princess, and going absolutely nuts for not being able to participate in any of the adventure.

Not everybody likes Twilight. Heck, Sparkler hates her guts for one-upping her organizational skills. Twilight even aggravates her friends at times, though less so as a pretty princess. She doesn't rage against the machine, and is pretty content with the way the world is.

Any character can be portrayed as a Mary Sue, but for all Twilight is ridiculously overpowered at times, I just don't see her fitting in that role most of the time.

How must the show end at the end of its final season?

1. It should end with epic, mythological force.

2. It should be more adult than the previous end-of-season episodes. Okay, the ending has to be happy or at least glorious. But there should be an element of sorrow in it. A flavor of tragedy and loss. Something sad and final should happen that isn't resolved in a group hug and a shower of candy and rainbows.

3. It shouldn't just be another triumph over one more dark-colored baddie with glowing eyes, an evil laugh, and a nimbus of black writhing bits like Nightmare Moon, Sombra, or the Pony of Shadows. Not just another laser battle where horns or jewels or mystic rocks, scrolls, or trees shoot out beams that push each other back and forth. We need something darker and more powerful than that -- an adversary dark and powerful enough to lift the show's ending to a legendary level. An adversary of a kind that we haven't seen or imagined before in connection with My Little Pony. An adversary that leads us into a moral that makes even the adult audience pause and think.

4. It should be at least an hour long: maybe two hours.

I'm not sure how to do this, but one thought that occurs to me is to make the adversary Death. We've seen death and its results in earlier episodes, but the word itself has never been used. Let it be used. Let a personified (or ponified) Death take some central and beloved character. How about one of the Two Sisters? We've seen Celestia seem to die twice, only to recover and triumph in the end. But what if she did not? With the myth of Orpheus in mind, imagine a denouement in which Death falls in love with (say) Luna and takes her to be his bride, and other characters struggle to reclaim her from the Equestrian Underworld. Ultimately, they fail, because they should and must fail. The age ends, the old gods pass away, and a new age begins as the curtain falls. Let that, or something like it, be the last moral of the show.

Too grim? Too grown-up? Let's hear some better ideas. But kids love stories about Death. Consider Coco, The Book of Life, The Corpse Bride, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Frankenweenie, Paranorman. And the proposition that old life must die if new life is to be born is a good strong aesop for the ending of the cycle.

The Good Stuff I just went back and rewatched "The Return of Harmony, Part 2." As the iris-out closed on the Star Wars ending, I realized that I was grinning like a bear trap from ear to ear.

It was wonderful. Snappy, funny, touching, acid, clever. Pickles and icing in just the right proportions. Clever dialogue, marvelous VA and faces, delicious animation (especially RD); avoiding the pitfalls of vapid sentimentality and vacuous irony with skill, care, restraint, and a manifest love for the characters and the world. I had forgotten how good this show was at its best.

Check it out. Watch it again. Do you agree? If you do-- what do you think the secret was -- or is, or might be?

Waning Lulamoon In S1's "Boast Busters," Trixie is a moderately powerful unicorn with real magic. Oh, the Ursa Major thing is all hype, and she uses a lot of smoke bombs and fireworks, but she has enough unicorn power over ropes, rainbows, lightning, and hair to do real magical dirt to Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity. When she gets hold of the Alicorn Amulet, her natural powers are amplified to the verge of omnipotence. But by the time we get down to the latest season, she has become as big a humbug as the Wizard of Oz.

Raking It In According to FilmLA, the official Los Angeles film office, My Little Pony: The Movie had a production budget of $6.5 million (https://www.filmla.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/2017_film_study_v3-WEB.pdf). This makes it almost the cheapest feature film made in whole or in part in California last year. This figure is also a LOT less than any estimates I've seen on any brony website. If this budget estimate is correct, then the movie was fantastically profitable, reaping almost a one thousand percent return on investment.

Old AliTwi Idea Hey everyone, been a long time, huh? I was digging around my old stuff and found a concept I remember putting a lot of effort into. Not sure how many people here still watch the show, but this was back during the season 3 hiatus when I wanted to show all the doomsayers that it was possible (if highly unlikely) that the show could do well after the whole Princess Twilight fiasco. It's just a sort of... hypothetical look into where I think things could have gone. It's a little long, but not a fic or anything. I'm kinda just looking for feedback, whatever it might be.

<Welp, the body was too long for a post, so here's a link to a google doc instead.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iqrJ_hddNAHFkr0LLFL8EYbQAT58SsvqmMPCfp9HqGo/edit?usp=sharing

Target demographic When this show started out, the ages of the Mane Six were a topic for debate. The last time we had the don't-treat-me-like-a-baby motif, the protestor was -- what? maybe nine or ten? But in Saturday's episode, one of our viewpoint characters has a beard (which his mother tries to cut off, sigmundfreud cough cough) and the other one yells, "I'm a grown mare!" Starlight's old room (pic) is a zoo of rebellious-teenager paraphernalia: male alicorn plushie with smouldering eyes, leering leather-clad stallion on poster, skulls everywhere, some with demon horns.

The target demographic for this show is no longer 6-8-year-old girls. Proof: almost all the show's commercials are now for adult stuff, of no interest to young girls.

Spinoff Town With Spinoff Ponies I've been thinking about a show that would uphold the ideals of FiM, without using any of Hasbro's intellectual properties. The main goal in planning this "bible" is to come up with a cast and setting that have the most potential for FiM-style episodes.

The basic premise is that the show takes place on a new continent far away from the mainland Equestria, referred to only as the "mainland" or "maneland" in the show. The main location would be a small town (name needed) that was originally a logging camp but has since grown to about the size of Ponyville. The town is near a forest of giant trees, and many of the older buildings are built from their trunks or even inside trees similar to Twilight's old library. As ponies avoid exploiting nature, the logging has slowed down since the early years and the vast, mostly unexplored forest is still full of mysteries.

The working title for this show is "Settlers of Horseria", but as always, suggestions and discussion are welcome.

Bad hombres From an article by Jennifer Burton et al. in yes! magazine online:

'Stereotypes persist in both how characters are drawn and how they talk, with "bad guys” using non-American accents and dialects. We see this in characters like Dr. Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb or Nightmare Moon on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.'

Does anyone out there have any insight into what these people are talking about?

Retrospectives On a whim, I went back this evening and re-watched "Power Ponies" (S4E06). I loved it. I grinned all the way through and laughed out loud in a couple of places. The beauty-salon-of-doom motif was a nice subversion of the whole macho superhero shtick, the Mane-iac was properly over the top, and the powered-up personas of Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie were dead-on developments of their individual characters.

If you have a neglected past episode that would be worth revisiting to remind us of the glories of G4, tell us about it!

Supination This is a trivial point, but it bothers me. IRL horses can't supinate their forearms -- that is, they can't rotate the sole of their hoof so it faces upward. (Most mammals, apart from apes and humans, can't either.) But Equestrian ponies can. They're shown all the time on the show in palm-up postures. But how do they do this? You practically never see an intermediate position. One frame the sole faces downward; in the next frame, it faces upward. I suspect that the animators just change the shape of the end of the foreleg for most ponies. But this won't work for the ones that are wearing shoes -- i.e., Luna and Celestia, with their gold and silver sandals. Does the sole of the sandal rotate toward the midline? I don't think I've ever seen it in that position. There seems to be an intermediate position in some shots, but I don't have the necessary software to look at individual frames.

Sometimes you will see a pony pressing one or both soles to her face in a half-supinated position (pic), so there must be rotation. But I can't recall ever seeing the bottom of one of the princesses' sandals. Do the shoes magically change shape as they go from pronated to supinated? Can someone do a frame-by-frame check and report back?

Postscript: you CAN see the bottom of a princess's shoes in some shots -- e.g. s6e25 at 3:22. But they're fully supinated already. The animators seem to be avoiding the in-betweens.

MLP has been weak since S1 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.

CMC mystery books thread So I thought I'd make a thread on the CMC mystery books in case anyone here has read these; I know the board's basically dead, but I thought I'd give i a try anyways :p

Honestly, I find it kind of funny-- the Mane six books as of late have all been super low key slice of life crap with the two parters besides shadow play either having them as cameos or not dealing with them at all in stopping threats, while these Books have the CMC dealing with an overarching plot of Apocalyptic dark magic and real actual stuff of importance that each one does in each book to stop the problem. Plus them apparently being prophecied individuals to stop a massive threat to the world and being personally guided by Luna and Celestia is kind of big.
Compared to the mane six the CMC almost seem to be putting them to shame here in being heroes

Rewriting History So, it's no secret that there are plenty of episodes that some would consider "the worst episode" or some variation of that title. Now if you don't have a worst episode choice, try and pick one out. Because the question i have for you /pony/, is that if you were given the power to re-write any of the mlp episodes, which one would it be? What kind of changes would you make to improve it?

I've always loved reading your guy's reviews of when new episodes come out, so I'm genuinely curious about this.

Other Zebras? 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.

Princess of Phonology According to EQD, the new Chinese dub of FiM uses the following names for the mane characters:

•Twilight Sparkle - 紫悦 (Zi Yue) - PURPLE DELIGHT
•Rarity - 珍奇 (Zhen Qi) - RARE
•Rainbow Dash - 云宝 (Yun Bao) - CLOUD TREASURE
•Fluttershy - 柔柔 (Rou Rou) - SOFTLY
•Applejack - 苹果嘉儿 (Ping Guo Jiar Er) - APPLE FINE CHILD
•Pinkie Pie - 碧琪 (Pi Qi) - PEACH
•Princess Celestia - 宇宙公主 (Yu Zhou Gong Zhu) - SPACE PRINCESS
•Princess Luna - 月亮公主 (Yue Liang Gong Zhu) - MOON PRINCESS
•Princess Cadance - 音韵公主 (Yin Yun Gong Zhu) - PHONOLOGY PRINCESS
•Queen Chrysalis - 幻形女王 (Huan Xing Nu Wang) - MAGIC SHAPE QUEEN
•Starlight Glimmer - 星光烁烁 (Xing Guang Shuo Shuo) - TWINKLY
•Sunset Shimmer - 落日霞光 (Luo Ri Xia Guang) - SUNSET GLOW

"Pi Qi" is ingenious, and "Softly" and "Magic Shape Queen" aren't bad. "Jiar Er" sounds like a least-worst Mandarin attempt at "Jack," and maybe they couldn't use "Celestial Princess" because it's the name of a god or an official title under the last Imperial dynasty or something. But "Phonology Princess?" Sweet Celestia's underpants!

I've seen clips from Mandarin dubs online for some time. Are those prior dubs for the Taiwan market? If so, does anyone know how they translated the names?

P.S.: Feeding "Pi Qi" through Google Translate yields "jade-colored jade," not "peach." Not the right color, guys. And "Luo Ri Xia Guang" means "Snowfall Haze," not "Sunset Glow." I haven't checked out the rest.

Grand-daddy Villain? 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
