My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, official nostalgia thread. The end of the line! Mint horse Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829843

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.

>What are you guys doing to celebrate the end of the show?
Don't have the time to rewatch the whole series. I'll probably just try and make sure I can at least free my schedule to watch the finale live.

>Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here?

Unfortunately, I haven't been around much lately. So after the show's over, I've been thinking about cutting things off for good (though i could always check on things occasionally).

>When did you join the fandom?

End of February/beginning of March, 2011

>Do you still watch the show?

Yes. Not live like I used to though. Schedule's been keeping my busy.

>What is your favourite episode/season?

A Canterlot Wedding or Amending Fences. Season 4 was probably my favorite overall season.

>Who are your favourite ponies?

Twilight and Luna.

I'm going to my first con -- Ponycon, this summer -- if "celebrate" is the right word. I expect to see a lot of crying in beers.

>Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here?

Dunno. Let's see what G5 looks like.

>When did you join the fandom? Spring 2011.


>Do you still watch the show?

Faithfully. Well, I see every episode. I don't always log on to a stream for the initial showing.

>What is your favorite episode/season?

I think "Return of Harmony" and S2, but the list could be way longer. There's a lot to be said for "Too Many Pinkie Pies."

>Who are your favorite ponies?
Celestia and Luna.

I have not yet accepted the end and am still hoping for a miracle or the end of the world.

I will remain a fan of FiM. It is unlikely I will be a fan of Gen 5. I expect them to make it very unappealing to adults this time.

Season 2

>favorite ponies

It's fluctuated over the years, but finally landed on Dashie as best pony. Twilight and Rarity were also in that spot for a while. Sunset is another favorite, but she's not a pony anymore.

I'll continue to rewatch old stuff as I regularly do anyway.

>Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here?


As long as it stays fun to watch the old stuff which should be a while.

>When did you join the fandom?


Very early in January 2011.

>Do you still watch the show?


Yes, every new episode numerous times and also older ones.

>What is your favourite episode/season?


Season 2 was my favorite for the longest time though it has aged quite a bit by now. So it might have been passed by season 5 by now.

My favorite episode is either Crusaders of the Lost Mark or The Perfect Pear.

>Who are your favourite ponies?


Rarity and Applejack.

Silverscreen/Gemini SparkleCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829873

I'm buying and binge watching the entire series throughout march (I have a bad habit of watching things at a higher speed, and I can binge watch shows like Breaking Bad in a week, so catching up before Season 9 starts will be a cinch)

I...am not sure about the fandom. I kinda drifted apart from it for a while, and I'm not sure if I want to dive right back into it like I had. Especially knowing it'll slowly dry up once the last season ends.

I joined the fandom right after season one's third episode (The Ticket Master) was aired and pirated onto Youtube (Which was my main source of watching the show since I didn't have television).

I haven't watched an episode since I binge watched up through season 5...or 6. Whichever one came right before Flurry Heart appeared. And both of those seasons were binge watched after they came out.

As of right now my favorite episode is the ending two-parter of Season 4. It felt like a damn good final episode and I literally had chills while watching it. It had fantastic songs (my all time favorite song will forever be "You'll Play Your Part". It speaks to me as someone who has struggled to think of a plan for my life), a great story, a great villain, and all the characters acted as I knew they would/should. Season 2's wedding episode has always been a close second for the same reasons, and it was mostly Rarity episodes that were my favorites after those two.

My favorite ponies are Rarity, Fluttershy, and Applejack. Rarity was my first favorite, who I thought had the most and complex character development during season one, and it was great seeing her life/career continue to thrive through the series.

My biggest question is this...is the fandom worth coming back to? I fell off the bandwagon for personal reasons, but I stayed away because some of the toxic aspects weren't really appealing (I know every fandom has its toxic side, but the MLP fandom drew a ton of ire from it). Bronycon is no more, and as I said I can't help but feel that places like this will slowly rot away once the show ends. I'm not sure if I want to be around to see that happen if I'm not going to enjoy myself.

>>36829843
Joined in late 2011; I forget when, I just know it was around the end of S1.

my favorite episode is Wonderbolt academy, and I still watch the show.

As for celebrating? Nah man, its kind of sad. I won't be "celebrating" due to that-- won't be "mourning" either, since its gotta end sometime, but its still sad, y'know?
I have high hopes for G5 at least since its a direct reboot (or looks that way).


Favorite pony is dashy.

I'm celebrating the end of the show by attending every single pony con in the US this year. I hope to see some of you at at least one of them!

>Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here?

Yes, definitely. I'll still be here even when G5 becomes a distant memory.

>When did you join the fandom?

January 2011. First episode I watched live was Call of the Cutie. Stopped watching the show for a bit after Twilicorn. Eventually got back into it in 2016.

>Do you still watch the show?

Yes. I still love watching episodes live.

>What is your favourite episode/season?

Season 7, and A Royal Problem.

>Who are your favourite ponies?

Celestia, Pinkie, and Derpy.

Now that takes me back. I remember posting in huge 2000-post Pinkie and Dash threads, as well as finding specific images for other people whenever they asked me on /pic/. I also miss the Ticketspam.

>What are you guys doing to celebrate the end of the show?
I been trying to rewatch the show all over again, i mean back in the day i saw the first three seasons at least three times but after S3 i stoped watching for about a year or two, until season 4, i never finished season 5. I Had no idea they were about S9 until this year.

>Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here?

I haven't been here since 2014 maybe idk, however i just come around from time to time. Anyway after G4 dies i think the whole fandom will decrease dramatically

>When did you join the fandom?

Late 2012 in december, i posted ponies some time before that, but after watching FiW i started watching the show about that time.

>Do you still watch the show?

Not really as i said i want to rewatch it at least the first three seasons

>What is your favourite episode/season?

It's hard to say, literally i don't remember the names of the episodes but the most memorables imo are the one wheree the m6 met braeburn and stop a fight btween buffalos or something like that.
Also the one Luna tries to be cool in nightmare night.
I loved the songs from s3 but the finale.. meh, it still hurts.

Who are your favourite ponies?
Totally Ponke Pi, until the end of the world.

31st december 2012, someone posted this same picture in new year thread in this same board.
I just remembered that.

So does anyone think they'll try to use episode 200 to try and outdo episode 100?
(There wasn't a good place to ask and I didn't want to make a new thread)

>>36829981
Definitely!

Given the heavy fan service we've seen from the show throughout the years, but especially recently I highly doubt they'd give up the opportunity to go ALL OUT on episode 200, especially considering that the show'll end just a few episodes later.

Attend meetups and rewatch or something. Would be stoked to watch some together with you guys.
>Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here?
Well, I don't even really know what makes the fandom anymore, but I'm staying connected to ponies and this site as long as possible.
>When did you join the fandom?
Summer '11
>Do you still watch the show?
Every episode and most of EQG as it comes out. Saw the movie too.
>What is your favourite episode/season?
I once tried ranking top 10 songs, that was hard enough, so I'm not going through all episodes.
But just for the novelty sake S1 holds a special place.
>Who are your favourite ponies?
AJ
>is the fandom worth coming back to?
You can only figure this out for yourself. I am way less into it than before, but I like the slow, steady, and shallow going too.
>anyone think they'll try to use episode 200 to try and outdo episode 100?
I have no idea.

I joined back around January 2011 i think, i was shitposting on /b/ with pony images i found, because i was 14 and that was the shit, i didn't really know much about it, but i started to get curious

I stopped following the show in the middle of season 3, season 2 was my favourite

I have a lot of nostalgia for 2010-2012, but i did watch all of the new episodes a while back, it's a pretty mixed bag lately honestly, i wonder what the final season will bring

Boy has it been forever, but I feel like it was just yesterday. No really my chronological memory is terrible.

Guess I'll answer the Q&A first.

> What are you guys doing to celebrate the end of the show?


I don't have any friends who like the show. I... don't really have any friends. So, I don't really have any way to celebrate. I might take a moment of silence, I dunno. I'm silent most of the time.

> Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends?


The ride never ends.

> When did you join the fandom?


Late 2010, after the first few episodes came out. I think Boast Busters was airing. That doesn't make me better, just earlier.

> Do you still watch the show?


I still need to finish season 8... definitely suffering some series fatigue. Honestly I was done with the show after season 2 ended so horribly, but I've stuck around to catch good episodes, so... yay?

> What is your favourite episode/season?


Season 2 is probably my favorite. They were really into their element then, and everything was still happening. It was before we had to accept changelings as canon, Cadance as canon, Alicorn Twilight as canon, Discord's reformation as canon, Rarity 4 U as canon, Rainbow Dash the Wonderbolt as canon, Starlight as canon, Sugarmac as canon. It was before we had to pretend that tacky human high school drama was a good idea. We still had a lot of the parody artists, and the video reviewers, since Google hadn't started persecuting them yet. There were a lot of fan comics going.

So... yeah, Season 2. Good episodes beyond that though, generally any episode that didn't mention the existence of Princess Mi Amore Cadenza.

> Who are your favourite ponies?


Not Princess Mi Amore—okay I'll shut up about that. I like Apple Bloom, Daring Do, uh... Derpy. The M6 can be cool.

Might talk more about the impact of G4 and our favorite stuff later.

>When did you join the fandom?

Experimented in 2012, Experimented more in 2017, Joined last year

>Do you still watch the show?

I literally started on season 9... I had a look back at some older episodes though.

>What is your favourite episode/season?

Like I said, started on season 9

>Who are your favourite ponies?

Scootaloo, Braeburn & Rainbow Dash. I would have added my favourite OC's but I haven't seen many and idk if I'm allowed to

>Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here?


I'll always watch MLP from now on. I've watched everything from 1984 to now and I'm not going to stop anytime soon.

>When did you join the fandom?


I joined like March-April 2011. I remember because Green Isn't Your Colour had either just come out or it was the last episode to have come out when I joined.

>Do you still watch the show?


Yes. Stopped and started a few times but currently all caught up.

>What is your favourite episode/season?


I don't have a favourite season. Favourite episode is Rock Solid Friendship

>Who are your favourite ponies?


Trixie and Starlight

With any hope, gonna be around with my other brony friends, but I also hope to attend the last bronycon this August.

>Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here?

Totally. Pretty much for as long as this place stays up, even if I might not post much.

>When did you join the fandom?

Around August 2011 when a dear friend of mine introduced me to it. I was a bit hesitant at first, thinking it silly, then I gave it a try and was blown away by the lack of the usual childish cringe that naturally comes from shows meant for younger kids. The ponies were far cuter than I had expected as well, thus I stayed. The same friend also introduced me to this place! The very day was September 15th, 2011 late in the evening. Being that I was interested in RP prior, and given that said friend was a fantastic writer, I was hooked and made my OG character Taiga.

At the time I was a TERRIBLE writer, in fact, I was in HS at the time and failing pretty much all my writing/English based classes because of it. When I started to RP, for once I was engrossed into it, and because of that I learned and learned fast. Hell, look at said first OC and the very first pic of him XD. I can safely say that because of this place I was able to graduate without being held back.

I've made so many friends here, many times more so than at any other point in my life, even during HS (This sadly seems rare, but my HS days were absolutely fantastic, and will always be a joy to remember)

>Do you still watch the show?

I do! I am slow to catch up on it, if just because I do kinda like to drag it out long to savor the taste. But you can be certain I'll be buying the whole collection when they come out on disk. I hope and Pray G5 will be just as fun, and I'll be sticking around here to see the next wave~.

>What is your favorite episode/season?

Dunno! So far the later ones with Glimmer make me smile a bit more. I enjoy it most when the challenges are at their hardest.

>Who are your favorite ponies?

Hard one, but AJ, and Glimmer I think when it comes to personality. I remember enjoying AJ ever since that one EP where she flat out stated she didn't even need to learn a thing XD. Glimmer for her entire ark and being unafraid to use her powers to try to flat-out smack down problems that would otherwise stump the rest, even if it doesn't work out at first.
