Welllll there were a few others! Mostly.. in the background during crowd scenes. I seem to distinctily remember a green one with a shield near the start. As well as a few during Apples 'extended family' introduction. They'll likely include some as important B listers later so the girls have someone to fight over or something. Who knows?

But yeah...changing Rainbow Dash into a dude would have resulted in absolutly-no-differance. Could have kept the same voice actor even!

I have seen all of G1. Pretty much everything after that was painful, and some of G1 was god awful. Generally, the plots would be 2~4 episode arcs that would conclude at the end, although characters recurred and events were sometimes referred back to.

I still prefer the good episodes of G1 to the new series so far. The new one has good animation and enjoyable characters, but in G1 things like friendship and courage weren't supernatural powers that could save the day. Magic was magic and ponies were ponies.

It's more obvious if you actually watch it. One of the running things of the episode is that she's basically addicted to the potion and the all-encompassing need for more is ruining her relationship with her boyfriend and consuming her life.

>you fucking nailed the art style.

Yes, it's actually pretty great. It would take me fucking forever to emulate the style that well (curse my shitty linework abilities!)

>And Luna's character from a writing perspective, too.

I am going to go ahead and speak out against this, though. Because goddammit I loathe the people who want to grimdark things that are not that grim and/or dark; or worse, things that DO have some elements of grim/darkness and that are being elevated to the fore.

There is absolutely no indication ANYWHERE in the show that Luna is bitter or Celestia is abusive towards her. At all. It's all just /co/'s wankfest.

Sure, she looks pretty down when she's riding up to the party. Then the ponies cheer for her and give her a wreath and she is shocked. Then she goddamn smiles, even though celestia isn't even looking at her.

The most likely reason that she was down? She thought that all of the little ponies were going to hate her for what she had done. She was surprised (and pleasantly so) when it turned out not to be the case.

Harping on the thousand-year imprisonment is also utter bullshit. Yes, Celestia imprisoned her for a thousand years. What every faggot on /co/ that makes a big deal out of this forgets is that this was after Luna went crazy and became Nightmare Moon, and then tried to create night eternal, which would entail imprisoning Celestia for eternity. She even did it twice, since she did it again once she got out!

It was shown that the only way to remove the shell of Nightmare Moon and restore Luna was to unite the Elements of Harmony, but Celestia even said in the episode that only Twilight Sparkle had the right sort of magic within her to do this. Twilight Sparkle ALSO has an unexplained ability to teleport that even she does not understand, which lends credence to this.

What this implies is that the only way to free Luna from the grasp of Madness was, in fact, to imprison her until such a time as a pony existed who could remove the 'nightmare moon' element. Hell, she wasn't even outraged because of the imprisonment. Her 'revenge' plan upon escaping was to continue exactly what she was already doing before she was sealed.
No. 9432 ID: a4b4e3

I always thought the whole abuse thing was a joke, like "What if it were like this holy shit" due to you only have to tweak a few lines to make it much, much creepier.

People seem to glance over the line about her not seeing her "in this form" (her true form) though.

>Because goddammit I loathe the people who want to grimdark things that are not that grim and/or dark; or worse, things that DO have some elements of grim/darkness and that are being elevated to the fore.
It is not exactly that hard to grasp from the show that Luna might have been sad about being stuck far away from everyone. It is pretty much an outgrowth of realizing that Luna is (within the context of the story) an actual person with actual emotions.

>Harping on the thousand-year imprisonment is also utter bullshit. Yes, Celestia imprisoned her for a thousand years.

No. 9458 ID: 78b8c2


The only point in which I take umbrage with you for any of this is

>night eternal, which would entail imprisoning Celestia

... which is not true. The prologue showed clearly that, when NMM did it the first time, Celestia was still free. It was in fact a significant point that Celestia tried to talk to NMM first, then banished her using the Elements. It was only the second time, when NMM escaped, that Celestia was imprisoned. And that was the revenge, not the eternal night.

Which makes sense. It was Celestia that imprisoned her, and so it was Celestia who was the target of her vengeance, not the lesser ponies.
No. 9459 ID: bf1e7e


>The prologue showed clearly that, when NMM did it the first time,

She DIDN'T do it the first time. She tried, but when she vowed to shroud the land in eternal darkness Celestia stopped her.

The second time, Celestia DIDN'T stop her because the means to purge the Nightmare Moon persona (Twilight Sparkle and the elements of Harmony) were actually available.
No. 9464 ID: 78b8c2


I say thee neigh!

Luna "refused to lower the moon to make way for the dawn". Then Celestia talking to her sister, then the transformation to nightmare moon and declaring that the night would last forever, then an image of ponies freaking out at the night sky, followed by the use of the elements of harmony to banish her. So the night had already been extended beyond its normal timeframe before the talk/fight between the two, during which Celestia was free.

However, the second time, Celestia probably let herself be imprisoned, and could have escaped at any time - she needed the Elements to do it to Luna, who as the younger sister was probably less powerful in any case, so how could NMM do it without them? The whole thing, therefore, was a cunning plan to get TS and company to use the Elements on NMM to turn her back into Luna.

Unless NMM's helmet and such were "evil" magic artifacts or something. But that's pure speculation.
No. 9465 ID: bf1e7e


>So the night had already been extended beyond its normal timeframe before the talk/fight between the two,

But that's the point. She hadn't lowered the moon yet, but she hadn't transformed into Nightmare Moon and threatened an eternal night. Up to that point, she was just being stubborn.

>so how could NMM do it without them?

Nightmare Moon was shown to do all kinds of crazy magic bullshit, Princess Celestia has been shown to actually do nothing even approaching the scale. While I would not at all be surprised to find out several weeks down the line that there is in fact some ancient force which caused Luna to actually go crazy, the fact remains that, from what we have seen, Nightmare Moon HAS shown more substantial magical ability than Celestia ever did on her own.
No. 9467 ID: 679e7a



Maybe I'll give the show another try.
No. 9472 ID: 754124

Celestia is capable of causing both night and day to exist, and to toggle as she desires, and she's governing both the sun and the moon. Nightmare Moon only ever did her own moon at once, and some comparatively very trivial stuff, turning into fog and pretending to be three ponies and stuff.

Well, the fact that she does end up sort of making friends with them does matter somewhat, if only because it's necessary to unite viable wielders of the five lesser elements of harmony in order to reveal the sixth
No. 9473 ID: 754124

Also, she doesn't really ever admit she was wrong to not make friends. She does sort of slack of on the huge antisocial bitch aspect pretty quickly (which is basically normal among the neckbeardy sort who are only like that in the first place because no one likes them) but she still thinks that the knowledge was more important, aside from the practical value of having six ponies with more diverse skills including lots of knowledge and the Elements of Harmony, compared to one with lots of knowledge.

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrous_cycle#Horses

>A mare may be 4 to 10 days in heat and about 14 days in diestrus. Thus a cycle may be short, i.e. 3 weeks. Horses mate in spring and summer, autumn is a transition time, and anestrus rules the winter.
>A feature of the fertility cycle of horses and other large herd animals is that it is usually affected by the seasons. The number of hours daily that light enters the eye of the animal affects the brain, which governs the release of certain precursors and hormones. When daylight hours are few, these animals "shut down," become anestrous, and do not become fertile. As the days grow longer, the longer periods of daylight cause the hormones which activate the breeding cycle to be released. As it happens, this has a sort of utility for these animals in that, given a gestation period of about eleven months, it prevents them from having young when the cold of winter would make their survival risky. This is why these animals can only reproduce during certain times of the year.

Celestia has control over her subjects' periods. This is a possible explanation for the cutie mark on her crotch.

Fall is one of Celestia's favorite seasons.

Right after Summer, where all the ponies get to experience the full glory of the sun.

And Winter, where she has the shortest work schedule and can afford time to herself.

And Spring, where newly grown flora sprout up all across the kingdom to bask in her light.

Which technically makes Fall her least favorite season, but nopony wants to be the one to correct her.

The "moral" at the end of the episode was a mandate from Hasbro, and I'm willing to bet it makes the writing staff cringe to have to tack it on.

At least it's not as bad as it used to be, though. Qubo has been rerunning He-Man, She-Ra, and Bravestarr in their overnight lineup, and the PSAs were so heavy handed that they outright broke the fourth wall to talk to the viewer. I hadn't seen those shows in over 25 years, and I didn't realize just how horrible they were.

Celestia wants to be sure Twilight gets to have friends, get to understand the life of normal ponies and how they relate to each other, to know when it goes right and when it goes wrong and the whys and consequences thereof. Because one day, Twilight will become Princess Twilight, and she will live as an immortal god-queen forever. All her old friends will die, and she will never be able to make new ones, not really.

But she has to be able to remember what it was like.

It would be pretty cool if something big that requires the elements of harmony happens in the finale. And it isn't "lol it will be night or day forever muhahahahaha" and more like "OMG Celestia has gone rogue is destroying a lot of stuff/taking over the world/a magnificent bastard"

I really hope the writers don't forget about all the ponies powerjewelry
No. 12868 ID: 2eac65

I have my own theory on this. It goes something like this:

Handling the sun is hard work. With all the time and energy Celestia expends doing that, she had a hard time ruling Equestria even with her sister handling the night. The constant stress from their earthly and heavenly duties meant that the sisters had a tense relationship even when they tried they ruled together, and their differing natures didn't help matters.

Once the tension reached its peak, and Celestia was forced to fight her sister and rule the night as well as the day, she grew even more distant. Fulfilling her role as a goddess left little time for her role as a princess, and she was forced to entrust her kingdom to mortal regents, hoping that they could care for her subjects when she could not. Day by day, year by year, century by century, Princess Celestia drifted further away from her people.

The princess saw a chance to finally change this in the form of a young unicorn named Twilight Sparkle. Seeing in her many things that reminded Celestia of her sister, the princess chose Twilight as her personal apprentice before any NIghtmare-worshipping cults had a chance to recruit her. She hoped that young Twilight's love for the sun goddess and affinity for the night would be enough to bridge the gap between the two sisters and allow them to live and rule together in harmony.

Things did not go as Princess Celestia hoped. Instead of stopping Night Mare Moon with words, Twilight was forced to once again wield the Elements of Harmony against her. Though her crippled sister had begged for forgiveness, she knew that too much had happened for their rekindled friendship to last as it was. Something more had to be done.

And so, Celestia assigned her best and brightest student to study the magic of friendship with her newfound friends, so that she may learn what the goddess herself had long since forgotten. With enough time, and a little luck, her research will progress to the point where Celestia and Luna can finally be happy together.

That was terrible. In previous episodes, they've consistently shown that the world makes sense in its own strange way, and considering thing logically works where blind superstition fails. Here, they pit "unexplained" events against an insultingly inaccurate strawman version of scientific inquiry.

No. 13137 ID: bf1e7e



The moral is that there's nothing wrong with trusting someone that something is true even if you don't understand why. For whatever unexplained reason, Pinkie's Pinkie Sense WAS accurate (if upsettingly inconsistent; she explicitly never knew any sort of details until the 'doozy' where she magically knew a location, and the leap of faith); and Twilight was wrong to insist that it didn't exist at all just because she didn't know why it worked that way.

The problem was that they horribly botched the delivery by having twilight 'give up' and accept the moral, deciding to never bother to try to understand why. It makes the whole episode look like a condemnation of science, which it really isn't intended to be.

Oh geez I don't know if I want to open this particular can of worms.

I can't speak for others who worked on this episode, but from my perspective, it's kind of like you said: there are simply phenomenons that are difficult to explain. And I'm of the opinion that "faith" can apply to more things than just religion. For instance: are we alone in the universe or is there life on some other planet somewhere? We don't have convincing evidence that aliens exist, but it takes "faith" to say that's it's not possible at all. I've heard some pretty heated debates from smart people regarding certain cases of cryptozoology. In the end, if there is an idea we explore that leads us to inconclusive answers, we are left with a choice: believe it anyway, reject it, or wait for more answers.

Obviously rather deep for our audience, I know. And obviously up to lots and lots of interpretation. Maybe it was a mistake. Honestly, we started the process with the concept of Pinkie having that old fashioned cliche "knee's achey, it's gonna rain," Twilight not buying it and the humor we thought came out of that.

BTW---I'm not sure if I'm going to regret putting in my 2 cents on this one, so if my replying to this starts flame wars or invites trolls, I'm going to delete it. I really like having discussions with viewers, but I've been getting more nervous about it of late.

Again, fuck it. The whole thing was probably just to have a fun episode and the episode stretched a small point into some required "moral of the day" which only has any real merit digging real deep into it that' it's target audience couldn't hope to really touch on or any parent to give a fuck to grab a shovel and start thinking DEEP. Goddamn, I hate the notion that someone has to gain something significant from each tale told. That a message has to come from practically anything. Hell even Seinfield, despite running on the slogan "no hugging, no kissing, no learning", sort of had a message in not being a huge fucking selfish prick like the main cast was.

I just finished Soinc Rainboom. It was very nice!

We got some worldbuilding elements where we learned about pegasus ponies; apparently, they don't just plan the weather, they actually make it in factories.

We got more nifty magic from Twilight Sparkle, which also ties into the worldbuilding; it seems that unicorns can cast spells from books in addition to their natural talents, but they don't need magic words or gestures to do so.

We got another genius moment from Pinkie Pie.

We found out a bit of Rainbow Dash's backstory.

Fluttershy got a chance to be assertive without being a jerk about it.

We saw the characters' vices once again, showing that they're flawed enough to make trouble, but not too flawed to resolve it.

And most importantly, Rainbow Dash's element of Loyalty was reaffirmed; when her friend was in danger, she was able to pull off a trick she thought was impossible.

This is one of those breaks from reality that I feel are perfectly justified in kids shows. A more likely scenario is that the frat ponies would just grumble/trash talk her anyway, but the way they made it teaches the right morals. The ones that make the world a better place if everyone on Earth holds on to them, which never happens.

>apparently, they don't just plan the weather, they actually make it in factories.
I know it's supposed to be a magical fairy tale land, but damn, do these ponies have it hard. Instead of enjoying they lives they do manually all the things that occur naturally in just the next forest.

For reason I can't identify, it's fun to pretend that is was Celestia who set up things like that so that she would control not also her ponies, but the very forces of nature within her realm, and so that she could bask in her limitless power.

No. 13720 ID: bf1e7e


Mirrors aren't involved in the production of infant ponies. Baby Ponies are a sub-breed of pony much like Unicorn or Pegasus ponies. They are produced by a magic mirror, and instead of being a completely new pony they are a smaller version of the pony that stood in front of the mirror with the same cutie mark.
No. 13722 ID: 6ba8b3

On the other hand it goes against tradition but on the other it seems better than handwaving something important in life instead of telling the awkward truth. All in all I think it's good. Not that I think it'll ever come up in the show unless there's a sex ed what have learned coming. Haven't watched the latest yet though.

Oops, missed your post there. So the reproduction was not actually handwaved in the previous generation ponys? Shows what I know.

There was at least one episode (the golden horseshoes) where a pony in the episode was a descendant of another pony from an earlier time period. They did not have the same color scheme or cuty mark, and the character (mimic) was not named 'baby' anything.

While they never actually say THE PONIES FUCK or anything, there is clearly a method of reproduction beyond 'magic mirror makes baby version of self.'

Great, now we have a bunch of other cutie marks to make sense of.
Pinkie's makes sense since she's good at throwing parties, same with Dash (lightning fast) and Twilight (sparkly magic), but the entire Apple family is a bit confusing since they all have different marks with their business, excluding Bloom.

No. 14399 ID: 305890

You really only need an ERB when you're doing experiments on people. Her data just can't be properly peer reviewed without proper storage of data.

But if you think about it, this just proves that Twilight is the subject of the experiments, and Celestia is the one really collating data and going over it while wearing an adorable labcoat/saddle thing.
No. 14400 ID: e3f578

Realistically, without all this fan canon of Celestia being evil, the Princess is probably just getting Twilight to write these reports to have her develop her social skills and be a better person rather than legitimate science on the Magic of Friendship, meaning asking for nothing more than informal research reports.

Twilight's a workaholic and crazy loyal to the Princess, if she just stayed at Ponyville with her friends for that sole reason, Twilight might break down at feeling a lack of a practical purpose being there. Which explains Celestia's reaction noticed above >>14390 with Celestia basically being aware of how useless Twilight's reports are.
No. 14402 ID: 305890

Well, yeah, that's sort of what I was implying too. There is no experiment. She's obviously grooming Twilight to be someone important. A successor? A Luna replacement? but she doesn't want her to be socially retarded. Hell, maybe she just noticed how potentially powerful Twilight could become, and how it was almost certain to happen because of her drive and studiousness, and wanted to make sure she didn't end up using her power to dominate others - that she was properly socialized so that she would use her power in a constructive way.

Aside from mostly agreeing with Scootaloo in grimacing through much of it, in particular I noticed it went back to the sort-of-lazy here-is-each-main-cast-member-doing-their-bit-in-sequence writing which plagues the trailer and early episodes like The Ticket Master (which is good despite it), rather than the more organic and interwoven later episodes.

It did establish some decent backstory though, mainly for Twilight. She went all Super Saiyan with magic.

You know, the fact that they had no idea what genitals were was more offensive to me than anything else. The characters in the show aren't fucking retarded, and boys and girls apparently have sex to make babies in this continuity (I mean, they have moms and dads and siblings and shit).

Maybe if this was G1 or something, where babies are tiny clones from a magic mirror... Does this person even watch the goddamn show? Ugh.

Also, while I'm bitching, I hated the fucking "everything is tied in to Dash's sonic rainboom" in the last episode. It was so totally contrived and unnecessary. I liked most of the origin vignettes, but the Lynchpin Rainbow Dash thing was just retarded. Also, how the hell was it even a question as to whether or not she'd done it before in the Sonic Rainboom episode? Apparently everyone in all of equestria saw the damn thing, and there were tons of witnesses actually there for the race. It was a stupid plot device and it created continuity errors. Ugh.

About the second part, i'll quote these 2 post.

"Back in Sonic Rainboom, Pinkie Pie was the only one to know what a Sonic Rainboom looked like. AJ only saw the trail, Fluttershy heard it, Rarity's sight was blocked by the monolith, and Twilight was startled by it. Pinkie Pie, however, the only one to have WITNESSED it as it occurred, and even felt the shockwave."


"Stretching the thing a bit, this what might have happened nopony actually saw her doing the rainboom the other competitors where out and she did it very close to the ground, the spectators might have seen an explosion and a rainbow, but never related it to RD and nopony believed her about it."

Also, remember that the episodes are not sequential, so maybe Sonic Rainboom happened after Cutie Mark Chronicles.

As the guy in the first link said: "Continuity about a cartoon starring colorful ponies based on a commercial line of toys is serious motherfucking business."

I mean, I know I'm watching a kid's cartoon. That doesn't mean I can't point out stupid things. You shouldn't get mad when things are cheesy, but it's also not cart blance to make the plots retarded.

Also, you're also "taking ponies seriously" by arguing with me about it.

I'd also like to point out that Rainbow Dash trailed a rainbow out behind her ass for quite a while after doing the rainboom, and there were a bunch of pegasus ponies right there for the express purpose of watching the race.

I'm not saying it's impossible to explain away the plothole, but the explaining it away is something of a stretch and the explanation is somewhat flimsy.

That comment was not any kind of attack, just a joke, don't take anything i say too hard.

About the spectators, the rainboom might have happened far or outside of their field of view, and i don't think it could be easy to spot RD when she is going so fast, so they all saw an explosion and a rainbow moving trough Cloudsdale, but never spotted RD at the front.

1: They clearly saw rainbow dash at the front because they were cheering for her.

Eh, the "everyone is connected to RD and her sonicrainboom" was just a plot device to connect all their backstories together. It was cheap, but the group hug at the end was kind of worth it, in my opinion.

Anyways, I don't think this is the kind of show where they're going to care much about plot continuity, we're probably going to see a lot more plot holes as the series go on. Specially if they flashback to the ponies childhood again.

And Lauren Faust will just say "deal w/it". So better get used to it.
No. 14537 ID: 6b2b68

My attempt to explain it is that it happened at flight camp, so there were mostly children there, and while adults would possibly recognize what a sonic rainboom is they wouldn't believe that a little filly had done it, and especially wouldn't believe a bunch of kids saying another kid performed a legendary feat.

Besides, if it's so legendary, would they really recognize one if they saw one? Rainbow Dash already leaves rainbow lines all over the place, they might think it was just another crazy special effect that comes off of her when she does cool stuff.
No. 14540 ID: 383006

Sorry, bro. When stupid things happen, I'm going to call them stupid, no matter what I'm watching.

In my mind, understanding that your watching a kid's show is important when that's what your watching, but there is still a difference between telling a silly story well or telling it badly.

I also thought the Swamp Artifact was a way fucking stupider backstory for Rainbow Dash, but I really thought the one with her not making the team would have been a pretty realistic, mature message for them to have in an episode.

And those children were the same age as the adults in sonic rainboom, because they were the same ponies. They aged just as much as the main cast!

I'll add to the complaints about the episode: the Sonic Rainboom connected all of them together in their childhood, with the implication that they were destined to be friends or something like that. Before this episode, I liked the fact that they weren't connected together by any big event; they were just average citizens of Equestria (with obvious exceptions) who met and decided they'd like to be friends. It was nice to have a show that had ordinary (by pony standards) people being important to each other, just because they have the will to do so, without any deep circumstantial connection.

Then this episode came about, and it turns out... well, you all saw it. I didn't like that, especially after Twilight's friendship report at the end. I'm all for rainbows and friendship and things like that, but her report was so saccharine that it verged on the nonsensical.

Speaking of templates, this was pretty much pure formulaic moral-of-the-episode territory with none of the little shake-ups that mitigate the predictability in other, better episodes. There were some neat little incidental animations for Spike (his pathetic firebreathing has got to be an animated GIF already) but mostly it was, yeah, bland. Once again it was up to Pinkie Pie to carry the humour and she only got about two chances.

I don't honestly mind episodes like this at all. I don't watch this show for deep anything - it's mostly a distraction, some light entertainment to distract me from things. I did like the nod to the audience they threw in, with Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy totally calling the plot as soon as they learned a few of the facts right in the beginning.

Clipclop noises, spike dastardly, hell, a little bit of action. I was fine with it. I thought it was better than the Phoenix episode, and Spike's plans were all really stupid. I felt like his development was pretty decent. He really consistently acted less mature than pretty much all the other characters both intellectually and emotionally.

Of course, the real message of the show is that if you train a slave from birth, they'll be almost too loyal.

Oh, it wasn't 100% stereotypical - if that was the case, Spike would have been able to do something that was actually better than the owl. As it stood, he was completely inferior in every way (except for being able to teleport things to Celestia, but that never came up).

This new episode lends strong support to something I've been thinking for a while: Pinkie Pie is a raksha.

This would explain a lot of her strange behavior. The reason she throws constant parties is because she feeds on the joyful emotions generated. In the Everfree Forest, the reason she wasn't frightened by the trees is because she recognized them as a Ring-style shaping attack and knew how to counter it. The reason she acts the way she does in the latest episode is because she thinks in terms of Wyld storytelling: when she notices her friends acting strangely, she assumes it's becase of the most dramatic reason she can think of, and reacts in the most dramatic way she can think of.

Furthermore, in interviews with the staff, it's been revealed that it takes around a year for an episode to go from the planning stages to complete (with multiple episodes being worked on at once, of course).

Nope, the historical flashback was a one-time art shift which you won't see firther on.
But 'choppy'? Come on, the animation is fluid as hell.

The animation is efficient and if you're looking for it there are corners cut but those corners are well-chosen and the result is always smooth.

Keep in mind that I don't hate the episode, or any episode of the show for that matter, I just thought it was weak. Things that are going to bother me about the show are probably also not going to bother other people because of my training in writing. It is impossible for me to watch a show, a movie, or read a book completely uncritically, although I think I'm pretty good about not holding a particular piece of media to standards it was never meant to meet.

For me, the characterization is mainly what I focus on in the show, because the narratives are always going to be relatively simple and straightforward - that's the nature of the medium. A lot of the little jokes and things in the episode were funny, but making Fluttershy worthless and annoying bothered me and seemed totally inconsistent with how she'd acted previously. I guess it was especially annoying because since it was supposed to be "her" episode. Applebuck Season was the same style of episode, but Applejack wasn't useless, just in over her head, and her flaw that drove the story was much more consistent with how she'd behaved before.

Well, except that The Ticket Master starts with her having accepted Twilight's help (and having previously asked Dash) to win a bet with Big Macintosh, which is almost exactly what she won't do in Applebuck Season out of pride. :V

Ticket Master might come after Applebuck Season chronologically.

However, Dragonshy absolutely MUST come after the first episodes chronologically, and Fluttershy didn't even flinch at the manticore.

I have a Pony-related anecdote for you all.
Today, I was sitting in a class, waiting for my professor to arrive. I have just recently begun watching the show, and I was discussing an episode with a friends who sits near me. A girl in the class walks in, hears us discussing MLP, sits down and joins the conversation. From halfway across the room, a musclebound guy who I've never heard say a word before shouts something about bronies. We moved over there, talked about ponies, so on.

It was magical.

Eh. Faggotry was inevitable. OCs was inevitable. Hell, PORN and slash fanfics was inevitable (as with all popular things).

I mean, you've got a very valid concern, but one that should only be pursued if you actually WANT to care about how the 'fanbase' of a surprisingly popular children's show targeted towards girls should act... which, by and large, you shouldn't, really.

Fans gonna get their fanny on, bronies gonna bro and random folks gonna form an infatuation for googly-eyed animated pony caricatures and talk endlessly about it on the internets, sure as the sun comes up every mornin' and it rains on wedding days.

Other than moan about it, is there anything you can really do? Or should do, even? It's not like there's a purity of aspect to zealously guard in MLP: FiM. It's just a cartoon! If you don't like how some people's treating it or bringing it up again and again, don't hang around those people, I guess.

No. 15867 ID: f7ae22

An OC is an Original Character, i.e. a character that created by someone else and was not in the source content. Typically a connection to the source content is required for it to be called an OC, in general usage just being a part of the source content's world is enough, and often they will interact with source content characters. Since quest OCs make use of the culture and worlds of the source content, I would say they are indeed OCs.
No. 15874 ID: 3e6377

And we're all agreed that OCs are pretty terrible things, right?


Because I'm beginning to worry some people above the age of 13 think otherwise.
No. 15875 ID: f7ae22

An OC is not inherently terrible, there are quests on TGChan that make use of them and aren't shitty. Probably a huge reason for this is that people on TGChan in general ask the creators if they can use the creator's race, world, etc, and they are then able to easily contact that creator to keep their character reasonably within canon. Terrible OCs on TGChan usually arise from people not asking the creators and just shitting the bed about it and making a bad quest that can make the source content's creator look bad.

>You guys really do not understand why people don't like straight shipping, after ALL this time? Even Sprinkles himself seems clueless, which I refuse to believe isn't just an act. Nevertheless, I'll explain.

>The first reason is the My Little Pony fandom is full of fans that get overly attached to the characters. It is no surprise because they are very lovable. Good work on Hasbro's part. As such, seeing them in romantic relationships with males makes many fans grumpy. The reasoning varies from person to person which I will not delve into, but overall, it is frowned on, intensely. Lesbian shipping is immune to this, as nobody cares about girls loving girls, no matter what the pairing is. Some might, but they are the buried underneath the barrel minority.

>Snails is the most grotesque pony on the show, next to Snips. It's part of his design; it is what he is. The last thing fans (most fans) want to see is their favorite female pony having sex with him, for any reason.

>No doubt you've heard people yell "TROLL ART!" "TROLLING!" when it comes to Snails. Well, they weren't kidding. Snails shipping art from the very start was used to upset people and it still is. Some artists remain naive to this. Some know it well and draw it on purpose. And a few don't care either way and draw it indifferently.

>The second reason is the males on the show are very underdeveloped, save for Spike. Shipping them with any of the ponies tends to be difficult because people do not have much to work with. It is simply easier to have the characters who interacted with each other pair off instead, which happens to be mostly all the females.

>Seeing Fluttershy blow herself VS Fluttershy having Big Mac do her up her ass is going to go in the favor of futa Fluttershy, not surprisingly. Why? It's not any worse than seeing Fluttershy rip open her stomach in a Dead Space parody illustration. It's just shocking. It doesn't interfere with shipping, it doesn't make people feel insecure, it doesn't effect mai poni waifu people, etc.

>TL&DR: Straight shipping is taboo and straight shipping Snails is terrible. Do either at your own peril.

People don't like seeing their waifu getting fucked by Snails, near as I can surmise.

Sorry for bringing this old thread back to the top (I can only assume it was on the first page because of spam), but I had a question about it. The first post and its date imply that ponychan (presumably ponychan.info, which I believe was basically an alias for tgchan.org; am I correct?) existed before MLP FiM began. What was it before FiM? (in whatever sense it could be considered different than tgchan). Was it just related to the old MLP stuff, or what?

I'm... not actually sure. There's a pony theme that seems kind of unrelated to mlp that generates a silly pony name and icon for specific IDs though, that's pretty fun.

The site was changed to it entirely as an april fool's joke, then it was kept around as a stylesheet/mirror because it was amusing.
