Trixie's Great and Powerful Guide v1.96
Awesome Edition

Brief Introduction

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a reboot of the MLP franchise by Powerpuff Girls artist Lauren Faust, currently viewed by (almost) the entire Internet, not only the intended audience. Here is a place where we discuss the joy of friendship.

> My Little Pony? Seriously?

It's a clever show. It has excellent writing, character dynamics, humor, animation, and generally treats kids seriously rather than condescending to them. It has every right to be a 20 minute corporate committee designed infomercial, but it's not.

> Isn't this a show for little girls?

Pixar technically makes shows for little boys, and produce some of the best animation in the world.

> Okay, fine. I'll give it a try. Where do I start?

No Brony could ask for more. I recommend watching the episodes in order. They're all up on Youtube. Unusually, Hasbro seems fine with having the entire series up in public because they've made no move to bring down any of the episodes. Search for "Friendship is Magic Episode 1" and you should find the series pretty easily... Or search for "Sharing is Magic" Google Doc. That is all.

> Okay, I'm going to watch it but this had better live up to the hype!

Whoa, calm down there. The show is light hearted, optimistic fun but it's not for everyone. It's good fun, the community is good fun, and everyone can do with a reminder that friendship is magic but if it doesn't gel for you we'll love and tolerate you anyway. Plus, you might hit the wrong episode. Ask first?

> Iron Hoof/Fan Theories/Shipping/Binding

All in good fun! If it's not your cup of tea, skim it, but this show has triggered a great creative outpouring from the Internet. Pony themed fan-art is abundant and often excellent. See below for some examples.

> Derpy Hooves/Doctor Whoof

Two minor background characters who were adopted as emblems of 4chan. Derpy Hooves is so named due to an animation error in the first episode that had her eyes facing in different directions; 4chan has assigned her the role of Ponyville's mailpony, and her only line so far has been "Muffins". The show's animators are aware of Derpy's popularity and she's shown up a few times recently with her eyes obviously derped. Currently made canon in Feeling Pinkie Keen and in Faust's picture showcased below, Derpy was deemed important enough to appear in storyboards for Season II.

Dr. Whoof is a pony with an hourglass cutie mark; he and his kin save time and space very quietly off camera.

Episode 7
Saw the episode, finally. A cute little episode, even if it was fairly predictable who was ultimately going to win out in the end. Nice to see that their songs branch out to

As a side note, I had a turtle when I was a kid, and what Dash says in the end is absolutely right. Turtles are absolutely strong animals, and while (on land) it might take them awhile to get somewhere, you can rest assured, they will get there.

Episode 7
Saw the episode, finally. A cute little episode, even if it was fairly predictable who was ultimately going to win out in the end. Nice to see that their songs branch out to

As a side note, I had a turtle when I was a kid, and what Dash says in the end is absolutely right. Turtles are absolutely strong animals, and while (on land) it might take them awhile to get somewhere, you can rest assured, they will get there.

To be fair, it is a show for kids. I mean I think even kids could see it, but still.

Also, turtles and tortoises live quite a long time, don't they? If you live a long time, you can afford to take your time at things!

Oh, ponythread.
It's no Fine Feathered [Spoilers!] but the affect is achieved adequately. Or aquaductly, depending on movie preference.

Quote post aboilin' away, in the works. Let's see if I can get that done tonight.
We should have Gadora posin his ponemotes, and Blastech with the RP post soon.

A good rhythm to fall into, the addition of worthwhile info. *nod*

Good heavens, I have other threads to check! Nerts. Til later, ponythread!

Awesome new episode, now that I've finally had a chance to watch it. Really liked the new song. At some point soon that's going in the pony playlist.

Not sure where I would rank it though. Good episode to say the least, but not in my top five.

I decided to listen to some Winter Wrap Up.

Then I pictured the Bureau of Seasons in Yu-Shan singing it from Exalted.

Now I can't imagine the Bureau of Season not singing it when they transition winter to spring…… and the Sidereals standing around, staring bewildered at what the gods are doing every time this happens.

not sure if this belongs in this or the Exalted thread...

Episode 7
I think sometimes that Dash's thing is that she's all about front, putting on a show of confidence. This was a perfect episode for that, to me. Out of her comfort zone, she resorts to playing her own caricature, trying to match her pet to her carefully constructed image. Because surely that will be the one she will have most in common with and so an easier and safer time forming an emotional bond with, right? I don't think she's at all comfortable with that kind of thing, letting her guard down and making genuine emotional bonds*.
It takes her till the end almost to actually look at what she'd been doing and make a more honest decision, but I really found it heartwarming how sheepish she was on the way to the finish line. That look that says quite clearly that she knows without the need for a lecture that she'd been acting terribly and that despite her best efforts she'd already made an emotional connection with a pet that wasn't a concious addition to her image.

Also, Tank may have been an obvious enough winner, but I can say that I found myself genuinely rooting for him quite quickly.

*I get the impression, sometimes, that Cloudsdale is a pretty harsh place to grow up. It is, after all, basically our only source for real, canon bullying in the entire series.

This is the main reason why I like this episode so much. Like most of the Dash episodes, it's a fascinating character study of an enormously complicated and troubled mindset. That's my favourite thing in literature of any kind, and why Dash is best pony.

Yep. It's what makes the minor breakdown in the gorge so powerful, too. Once Dash is all alone and in a situation where she seems screwed, her front washes away and we learn a little more about her.

Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon fit as bullies as well, but rather than being dumb muscle they're the rich-bitch bully type.

Roleplaying is Magic, collation post

"Stolen and reposted from page 1 of last thread"

The Intro (WIP)



New Thread: Well, hello yourself, Sugar~

Proof that I'm actually working on stuff and not just stringing my fellows along.


Since the moon wars, the Sun Princess has steadily been more tyrannical, methodical, and cruel. Over the last few decades she has also descended into depravity and madness; in her paranoia, she has begun ruthlessly hunting down and arresting random ponies, Charging them with treason and conspiracy. Equestria is an iron-clad shamble, it's infrastructure supported by a small fraternity who formed amongst the courtiers and royal guards.

Unbeknownst to the Princess, or the guardsponies, the moon is an entire plane rather than a barren, rocky satellite. Strewen with ancient ruins of a past civilization, and roamed by those of monstrous mien, creature and pony alike. The Princess has been banishing ponies, griffons, diamond dogs, even dragons, and on the moon a society of sorts is forming.

The dragons, messengers and guardians of the moon's limited wealth, have formed kingdoms. The ponies, caught between moon monsters and stacking slavers, have formed their own outposts. What magic is available has been used to eke out a lunarial existence, and the rarest of dragons - the messengers - remain allied with ponykind. Supplies and food trickle in through dragon's fire, supplying the Lunarian elite with supplies to feed their lust for power. Kingdoms form. Factions rise. The land itself seeks to extinguish those who tread too heavy upon it, and you, either a veteran of the moon or banished to it, for crimes real or imagined, must forge your way in this strange new land — if you can survive your stone prison.


Welcome to


DUNGEONS
(In the Place You Were Banished To)
&
DRAGONS


NB: From what I gather, the setting is still a WIP, not sure if it will be grimdark or not but here are some associated Siuis ramblings in response to various reactions from the ponythread.




Spoil'd for length
Well, if you want to roll up a new character, be my guest. I had tried to set it up such that the current batch would sort of "wake up" and realize they aren't in the Equestria they went to sleep in. This would let ponies be in the game without hanging very much and would give the party a sense of kinship (since they all remember a world that didn't exist), but I'm not sure I've put it together well enough just yet.

Grimdark? Well, it could be, aye. I fear that may be the language choices I made however.


Ambiguity was intentional; I don't want to nail something down and have to undo it later.

Currently, there are big dragons such as in DragonShy and Owls Well That Ends Well, that are able to eke out large territories or "kingdoms". It's an in-game reason to have a place that isn't just over-run with moon monsters.

The smaller dragons, like Spike, would work specifically with their close pony friends. And while the Bluebloods of the world would rather just have a bunch of ponies fawn over them, the Trixies of the world have no problem publicly humiliating those who would rock the boat. Like, say, putting them in the stocks? Except where do you get the stocks? And how do you keep ponies in them? So we need guards and labor. But how do we keep the guards loyal? Why, bribery, of course! And so a web of greedy pony politics formed in my head.

As for resources, I believe some parts of the moon are hospitable (I could see Fluttershy specifically making a niche for herself, growing food and bringing culture to the moon monsters). And even if supplies could only be transferred dragonto dragon, all it takes is a banished noble writing one heartfelt plea for a good home-cooked supper, before they realize there is an items-only fast trade route back to Equestria. Pocket black markets would spring up in no time.



Makes sense. As I said, ambiguity is a future for me right now. I'm allowing the chance for grim stuff very specifically, for two reasons. The first is a nod to the source material (Dungeons and Dragons). The second, more important reason is leeway. As things stand, the setting is like the Nightmare Before Christmas; it's an ostensibly dark setting, full o undead and demons. Yet cannibalism, being fired on by artillery, treachery, and kidnapping are still horrible atrocities.

Similarly, the setting is potentially horrible; banished to a far off realm, having to create a society amongst the criminals and the naive both, tyrannical dragons using diamond dog hit men to enslave ponies... But these are ponies. They don't do that sort of thing.

In the end, I'm not going to have some royal pony slap around the hired help while the heroes watch if they spend there time being show-accurate and heroic, because that's horrible. But if the party decides they want to run a black market smuggling ring, I'm not going to keep the rest of the world all cartoon-y. It's as broad as can be so the players can set the tone.

-

Okie doke, so I realize that the pieces I've written up imply a setting to me, but I can't just leave it at that, aye?

I needed three things for the game. Dungeons, dragons, and banishment. Dungeon was easy; it followed banishment. But only Celestia has that power, so why not banished to the moon?

I like the setting concept because it displays the best of both dungeons and dragons, and ponies. Adrift in a strange land, how do they adapt? The ponies colonize, trade, and bolster. Some are perfectly fine, finding the moon to be just like Equestria, though in need of some terraforming. Others desperately want to return home, and seek the means to do so. Others are just biding their time until something gives, living their lives as best they can. There can be normal pony cities, metropolitan areas with many different cultures, dungeons with reclusive loners, and all of that stuff. It's also of note; how do earth ponies survive without equestrian soil (earth)? How do pegasi live when clouds are a rarity? What do unicorns do without Canterlot, the societal center that is their home territory?

The moon is a strange land. The sun ne'er graces the height of it's skies, and with good reason; Equestria doesn't appear as a round world, but as an impossibly large disk superimposed over the sky. As the moon rises, the western edge of Equestria sweeps across the lunar surface, rotating; at midnight when the moon is highest, Equestria is a flat place, seemingly hundreds of miles above the moon, and finally, it starts to tilt again, the eastern side falling towards the moon's surface like a huge see-saw1
Additionally, Nightmare Moon was banished here as well. She certainly doesn't want to be here! Now if only somepony could actually find her, they'd have a powerful ally, who could maybe get them back to Equestria. after all, canon NMM was alone on the moon, with no society or friendship to draw from.

I also decided to include some stuff from the thread for a laugh. Why is everything so different? Leo followed Starry Notions through time, into the past, and true to his expectations it mucked everything up. And of course he is unable to find Starry (or Whooves) to fix it.

I can see how it's too grim, indeed. But to me, it's no worse than any port adventure, where there is the possibility of a seedy underbelly. Every D&D setting has these details, I'm just listing the for the sake of completion.

Obvious weaknesses are that I need more of a planned story for PbP, I need to not spread things so thin, and I need to decide on the final touches.

Another note is lethality. I really want it to be non-lethal, but I've had some bad experiences with perceived player immortality...

That's my hand, as far as I can remember it. Any pointers, suggestions, questions or critique appreciated.

1: it makes sense if you envision it like an amusement ride; your flat disk is on an invisible arm, and goes around another disk which is stationary. At the zenith, you're looking "up" at a flat plane. As you move, the edges "tilt" towards you.
Even better, I figure the dark side of Equestria are where all the monsters are, jumping to the moon and then jumping to the surface afterwards.

And the Collated Character Sheets (Topaz and Esper, it took me FOREVER to find yours :smallsigh:)

I don't know if everyone intends to use these characters in the above PbP RP, since the discussion about the RiM framework and character sheets predates Siuis announcing his RPG.

Anyway, for comparison, have a gander:

Service time 6 months, completed Basic training, awaiting first assignment. Based on training results, recommend [REDACTED] pending approval.

OOC Notes:

Anyone want to take a wild guess what kind of farm his cousins have? (Fun fact, if it were pemitted in these RP mechanics, I would have had him have a variant of "pinkie sense" which made him sneeze when something shady is going on nearby)

In case any of this seems familiar, its probably for good reason ... I kind of view Iggy as a pony version of Inspector Columbo.

Quaver Rest (Roleplaying Is Magic) (BlasTech)

Name: Quaver Rest

http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/298/6/b/quaver_rest_by_btech-d4dw6af.png

Health: 4 Energy: 4 Courage: 4

Talents: Charismatic, Agile
Job: Composer/conductor/Teacher
Skills: Knowledge (Musical theory), Singing, Fencing, Cooking
Guiding Element Of Harmony: Laughter

Background:

Born to a musical family in Canterlot, there was no doubt that her talents would lie in a similar field. Groomed on several instruments as a foal, she soon realised her passion for creating music, as opposed to simply making it.

She has shown some aptitude for it and has since become a composer of moderate note and a conductor of several classical ensembles in Canterlot(unfortunately, not including the Royal Philharmonic which plays exclusively for the Princesses). Her dream is to one day compose a piece and conduct it in front of the Royal Sisters.

She also teaches music at the Canterlot Musical College (CMC). Unfortunately for her, this is where a lot of the richer families send their offspring for mandatory music lessons. Between countless hours of fruitlessly correcting snot nosed royals, and hearing her music butchered at their hooves, she’s developed a rather caustic streak in her vocabulary. She enjoys fencing, simply because it gives her an outlet for the considerable frustrations of her position and also dabbles in cooking from time to time.

Candle Keeper (Roleplaying is Magic) (Tectonic Robot)

Roleplaying is Magic Character Sheet:
Name: Candle Keeper

Description: Thin, beady eyed, and wiry, Candle Keeper always looks desperate no matter what he's doing. By all rights his large coat-robe should make him seem larger, but all it does is seem to accentuate his thin frame. His voice is usually thin and reedy, but can change in to a bellow with shocking suddenness. Ponies often describe him as "unbalanced". Also of interest is the strange amulet he has around his neck, which glows disconcertingly.

Coloration: His fur is a very light grey-blue. His mane is black and stringy. His eyes (when large enough to be seen) are green-gray.

Race: Earth Pony
Age: Stallion

Chargermane (Athanair)

http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq108/GitPLordXavius/Chargermane.png
Chargermane
Pegasus Stallion

Cutie Mark/Special Purpose: A (targe) shield with a sun motif, representing the purpose of defending Equestria and its people against any foe.
Primary Attributes: Body 2, Mind 2, Heart 3
Secondary Attributes: Health 5, Energy 4, Courage 5
Talents: Charismatic, Willful
Job: Royal Guard Trainer
Skills: Melee Combat, Monster Lore, Intimidation, History, Persuation, Military Leadership
Element of Harmony: Loyalty

Many years ago Chargermane proved himself to be a loyal champion of Princess Celestia's Royal Guard. Since he had a natural talent for command he soon earned a high rank within the order, and was known for being a more active commander than what was common in the Guard, on occasion even seeking out and fighting threats in the field.

However, after one campaign he decided to retire, and he has since trained promising recruits at the academy instead. He is known as a friendly and charismatic old pony, who genuinely cares for and encourages his students. However, he (and those of his old unit who still live) refuses to discuss what happened during his last mission, and it appears to be surprisingly hard to find out information about it.

He keeps a close eye on Paladin, the pony who was appointed Royal Agent. He sees him almost as his own son, and wants to make sure he does not make any major mistakes during his own mission to protect Equestria.

Dragonscale (Althanair)
http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq108/GitPLordXavius/Dragonscale.png
Dragonscale
Unicorn Mare

Cutie Mark/Special Purpose: A dragon, representing the purpose of bringing friendship between ponies and dragonkind.
Primary Attributes: Body 2, Mind 3, Heart 2
Secondary Attributes: Health 4, Energy 5, Courage 5
Talents: Perceptive, Charismatic
Job: Dragonfriend
Skills: Dragon Lore, Survival, Hunting, Fire Breath (Magic), Dragon Traits (Magic), Intensify Flames (Magic), Melee Combat, Intimidation, Spot
Element of Harmony: Kindness

Magic

Subjects: Animal, Body, Fire

Sample Tricks: Fire Breath (Create Fire), Smoke Cloud (Create Fire), Intensify Flames (Create Fire), Dragon Traits (Change Body), Locate Animals (Know Animal), Heal/Bolster Dragon (Create Body), Heat Vision (Know Fire)


The pony known as Dragonscale hails from the same village as the Royal Agent Paladin, and they were friends growing up. She was often a bit timid (though not to Fluttershy's extent), in contrast to the bold Paladin, and she liked animals, especially reptiles. Even though dragons were rarely seen in those parts of Equestria she greatly admired them, and hoped to meet one one day.

Then one day she got what she wished for, but not quite the way she wanted. A young green dragon found the village in its hunt for food, and it saw the ponies as just that. Despite the threat to her families and friends she did not want to see the magnificent beast hurt, so when Paladin charged and fought it the young unicorn became upset.

Though she knew it was what had to be done to save them all, her anger clouded her judgement. Silently she escaped from the others and followed the injured dragon back into the forest. Strangely enough it did not lash out at her, but allowed her to treat it. And so her Cutie Mark appeared: a dragon.

Over the following years she stayed in the depths of the forest, becoming more dragon than pony. Still, she did not sever connections with her family completely, and returned every once in a while to see how they were doing. They were proud of her, of course, but still warned her that dragons are dangerous creatures not to be taken lightly. She assured them that she was a friend of the dragons, and that she was on a mission to ensure friendship between ponies and dragons.

But nothing lasts forever, it would seem. Paladin, her old friend, had become an agent of Celestia, a monster hunter, and dragons were his enemies. One dragon he fought was a young one not unlike the one he had fought back in the village when he gained his Mark, and it was a friend of Dragonscale. The battle was ferocious, and in the end the dragon retreated, heavily wounded from Paladin's attacks. She tried to heal it, but it was not enough. The dragon died, and that was the breaking point for her. She swore revenge on Equestria, and Paladin specifically. There could be no coexistence, at least not until the current order had fallen.

Inkblot (Roleplaying is Magic): (Neoseanster)

Roleplaying is Magic Character Sheet

Name: Inkblot

Description: An earth pony colt, somewhat on the thin side, and not athletic, but not unhealthy either. When not in conversation, he's often between appearing reservedly attentive and observant, and having something of an absent minded, thoughtful look at him, as if he's contemplating something. When traveling he often carries on his back plain saddlebags.

Coloration: Inkblot's coat is a dark blue, and his mane and tail are black.

Race: Earth Pony
Age: Colt
Special Purpose: Observing and "helping" ponies to work through their issues, with mixed success... but it's the thought that counts, right?
Cutie Mark: A peculiarly shaped inkblot, which somehow seems to remind the viewer of something different each time it's looked at, despite not actually changing in appearance... maybe a moth? Or a fox? Or a mask? Or two people? It's hard to say for sure (reminiscent of a Rorschach test (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_test), not that ponies would be too familiar with such).
Primary Attributes: Body 1, Mind 3, Heart 2
Secondary Attributes:Health 3, Energy 4, Courage 5

Silverbolt (Silverbolt)

Name: Silverbolt
Race: Pegasus
Age: Colt
Special Purpose: Stormcrafting
Cutie Mark: Two silver lightning bolts
Primary Attributes: Body 2 Mind 3 Heart 1
Secondary Attributes: Health 3 Energy 5 Courage 4
Talents: Smart, Tough
Job: Student/apprentice weatherpony
Skills: Math, Knowledge (Weather Magic), Research, Precision Lightning Strikes, Gaming, Mechanic
Guiding Element of Harmony: Honesty

Physical Description: A slightly overweight pegasus colt, with a deep midnight-blue coat, silver-streaked white mane and tail, and blue eyes that are typically behind a pair of black spectacles. Mane is typically pulled back into a ponytail.


Biography: Born and raised in a small town near Fillydelphia, Silverbolt has always been fascinated by storms and the weather engineers who create them. As a foal, he dreamed of growing up to work at the prestigious Cloudsdale Weather Factory, and hoofcrafting beautiful lightning storms to wow everypony.

But there was one obstacle standing in his way: Cloudsdale University. More specifically, its extremely popular (and, in Silver's view, over-coddled and over-privileged) hoofball team. Silverbolt had long been teased and bullied by more athletic pegasi because of his weight problem, nearsightedness, and his bookish nature; he had no desire to attend a school that put such a heavy emphasis on its sports program. So, instead, he did something completely unexpected: enrolled at the University of Canterlot. He found that he gets along better with most unicorns than most pegasi, and while the campus isn't really designed for somepony with wings, the classes are absolutely fascinating. He's particularly enjoyed learning about unicorn weather magic, feeling that knowing other ponies' ways of doing things can only help everypony in the long run.

Silverbolt is in the same year as Midnight at U.C.


Raindrop (Roleplaying is Magic): (Vent Reynolt)
Name: Raindrop
Race: Unicorn

Guiding Element: Kindness
Magic:
Effects: Animate, Change, Create, Diminish
Subjects: Air, Body

Bio: Raindrop was born and raised in the suburbs outside Fillydelphia to a mixed Unicorn/Pegasus family. Raindrop had always been fascinated with the weather work that his dad did, so when Raindrop finally figured out that weather magic was his special talent, nopony was particularly surprised.

After Raindrop learned the cloud-walk spell, he moved to Cloudsdale to study advanced weather magic and weather control. After Raindrop finished his schooling (because nopony wants to hear the boring details of his time at Cloudsdale U.), Raindrop joined a weather team in a small town outside of Manehattan. When he has free time from the weather team, he likes to watch the weather that occurs without any pony influence in the Everfree forest.

I'm currently playing a Sidereal, actually.
This is now my personal canon.

I don't think I'm going to be able to get that image out of my head, either.

Episode 7
I really enjoyed this one. Fluttershy was cute, the jokes were funny, and the song was great. Also, I like to imagine some of the animals in the contest to be Rainbow's pet went on to form a superhero team after the episode. :smalltongue: Just because the skills they showed off were so cool.

Hi there fresh new pony thread. How are you?


To be fair, it is a show for kids. I mean I think even kids could see it, but still.

Also, turtles and tortoises live quite a long time, don't they? If you live a long time, you can afford to take your time at things!

I think there are levels of subtlety. For example, understanding that camera work is designed to draw your attention to future important plot points is clearly an acquired skill. I'm pretty sure that we all knew it would be the tortoise less than halfway through the song, but most kids didn't get it until Fluttershy literally shoved the tortoise into Dash's face.


So, yeah, just a reminder: Roshapon. Roshamon? Rashapun? Well, however it was spelled. Don't know if folks are still doing it, considering how awesome that last episode was, but just in case folks got distracted by ponies in the pony thread.

Rashomon. Which is actually the name of a different story by the same author and was improperly used for the movie adaption because they liked the setting better. The original story is called "In a Grove" and the short story "Rashomon" is about something totally different than the movie.


I decided to listen to some Winter Wrap Up.

Then I pictured the Bureau of Seasons in Yu-Shan singing it from Exalted.

Now I can't imagine the Bureau of Season not singing it when they transition winter to spring…… and the Sidereals standing around, staring bewildered at what the gods are doing every time this happens.

not sure if this belongs in this or the Exalted thread...

This belongs here.


This is the main reason why I like this episode so much. Like most of the Dash episodes, it's a fascinating character study of an enormously complicated and troubled mindset. That's my favourite thing in literature of any kind, and why Dash is best pony.

Dash is by far the most interesting psychological profile. She's proud and boastful, but unlike so many people who boast, she usually has the skill to back herself up. She also has a core of really strong personal values underneath the shallow exterior, as seen with Tank and as seen when she sacrificed her own aspirations in the second episode to help her friends. She's obviously a pony for whom doing the right thing is extremely important, but only when push comes to shove because most of the time she's a bit lazy.

One of the things I find particularly fascinating is her minor display at nerves before starting to fly down the gorge. She mentions kind of uncertainly that it's scary, and then immediately sidelines into bluffing that she's done it a million times before. And then, when she actually starts flying, she absolutely aces the thing. And she loves it, too, laughing and cheering the whole way. So why the fear?

This ties in to one of my earlier speculations on Dash as a Thyrsus: She's at her best when she's in the act of doing. She thinks winning and losing are important, that's the culture she's grown up in, those are the goals she's set herself. But they're fundamentally dissonant with her real goals, her real ideals. Rainbow Dash is at her worst when she wants to win, because that makes her afraid of losing. Her focus disappears and she falls apart and makes mistakes. When she turns around to taunt the birds about losing she crashes. When she freaks out at the Best Young Flyer contest she fudges tricks she can do easily when she's not thinking about it. When she makes the Running of the Leaves a contest of beating Applejack she comes last.

More and more, Rainbow Dash's love of winning seems to be an external force, imposed on her psychology through her time in Cloudsdale. She doesn't need to win, because she's incredibly talented, and when she's at her best she's just enjoying those talents, free and unfettered. When she's at her worst, she's worried about the perception of those talents.

There's a Zen poem I have a fondness for that fits here:


The Need to Win

When an archer is shooting for nothing, he has all his skill.
If he shoots for a brass buckle, he is already nervous.
If he shoots for a prize of gold, he goes blind or sees two targets.
He is out of his mind!

His skill has not changed, but the prize divides him.
He cares.
He thinks more of winning than of shooting.
And the need to win drains him of power.

(Chuang Tzu)

Unfortunately, this kind of problem is an extremely difficult one to get rid of. It's not impossible for a person to find inner confidence, but it's really tough. Look at real world athletes for example. Andy Murray vs. Rafael Nadal comes to mind. Murray is incredible, but he's fallen apart every time he's been in a finals. Nadal plays his absolute best when he's in the finals and makes shots that he wouldn't even believe he could get.

Now, all the ponies exhibit certain neuroses to various extents, but they also rise up in certain situations. Rainbow showed in this episode that she puts on her brash exterior to her own detriment and hurts herself by taking her mind off what she's doing. However, Rainbow also showed that being in a vulnerable position is actually a time when she's willing to swallow her pride and acknowledge what she really cares about.

Compare that with Twilight, who has shown herself to be a spectacular leader with a level head during an external crisis. But, Twilight has the ability to manufacture her own internal crises over minor issues and totally fall apart.

Reassuringly, I think the best way to overcome that kind of stage fright is having friends who'll be your friends even if you're not cool, or even if you lose. Rainbow Dash has never had friends like that before. Gilda was prepared to ditch her over a few pranks, but Fluttershy never would. And coming to realise that is what'll really set Rainbow Dash free.

Ah, Twilight, that's the Obrimos problem in a nutshell. In the same way that a Thyrsus is flawed in thinking when you should be acting, an Obrimos is flawed when she does not understand restraint. The card of Strength is great power held in check by unbreakable gentleness. Twilight often fails this - she has incredible power, which allows her to overcome incredible problems. When she applies that power unwisely, she becomes destroyed by it. Winter Wrap Up and Lesson Zero; using more strength than the situation calls for. Hubris leading to failure. Perfect symbolism.

Why in the name of the God-Princesses was http://i.imgur.com/KwcDX.png in a chicken coop?

To which I succinctly respond:

She was looking for http://i.imgur.com/ZLzTn.png, of course.

I mean, come on. It's only logical.

Maybe? :smalltongue:


I am also highly tempted to begin a petition for facebook to add English (Brony) to their list of languages. All in favour should join me in this idea that may or may not ever get off the ground depending on my commitment, follow-through, and free time on any given day or week.

What the three chief differences would be, though? :smallconfused:

Fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency and fanatical devotion to Celestia?


Soarin
could use this...
http://th03.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2011/322/5/3/welcome_little_one_by_tinuleaf-d4ghny2.png

It's nice one, but OP image has to be A) at least 20% higher than taller (unless you want it to be stamp-sized) and it sort of shows wrong relationship to begin with... :smallwink:


The bat played the main theme on the glasses during the talent competition.
Ride of the Valkyries played during the canyon race, and Dash whistled along for a little bit of it.

Well, she was having trouble getting RD off the ground.

When full of Fluttermagic?

(Though I still vote "Season Two Ruined My Fanon" for thread XXXIII.)

Thanks.

I'd say dragging her along took even more effort :smalltongue:

Fluttermagic or not, they wouldn't be pets for long...

One of these days I'll pony roleplay my avatar. If I can ever get the time.

good heavens, I don't know if I should be terrified or just enjoy the ride while it lasts when that happens.

Though I don't know that the poem gives me any real reason to fear. Your avatar could, perhaps, be a pretty intimidating critter.

Thanqol, your synopsis is fascinating. It's neat to see this crystalize, put words to the concepts that fly unfettered through the avenues of the mind.

Hrmz, well not much to say here except that once again my brain cannot navigate the fine eddies of our language (not to mention mental concepts) as well as you guys in terms of character analysis.

Also, I think I'll change my avatar, but no idea what to change it to. Old one of mine is up as placeholder for now but lunashrug was getting a little long in the tooth.

Finally, Ep7 spoiler vid:

Just because I find it funny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIP6zCis2RQ&feature=related)

Gummy reminds me of the brain-slug thing from Futurama. I also suddenly want a Fluttershy bobblehead doll.

Thanqol, are you a psychologist? I would happily refer all of my insane friends.
Considering what I'm about to say, I might need help more than them.

Attention Everypony!

In approximately 12 hours, I will be recording a song of your choice.

On the ukulele.

On my bike.

While riding over Vancouver's Burrard Street Bridge.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a6/Burrard_Street_Bridge_2.jpg/800px-Burrard_Street_Bridge_2.jpg
I mentioned in the last thread that this was a thing I did regularly, but it's never been recorded.

And now I do it for you.

Here are your choices:

Pinkie's No Fear Song
Winter Wrap-Up
Cutie Mark Crusader's Theme Song
Equestria Girls

Don't worry, everyone, I won't get hurt. I'm a trained professional.
Or at least I play one on stage...

Also, you are probably the most crazy-awesome person ever.

Edit: Finally watched Episode 7:

Tankcopter is best thing.

hmmm, almost as if she and her wings were made of Marshmallow..... :smallcool: :smallcool:

Does that make her related to Rarity?

Well, there is a unicorn toy (http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Toys#Wave_2) named Rainbow Flash, a recolor of Rarity. Maybe RD and Rarity are half-sisters or cousins, and the Marshmellowness runs in the family?

In general: Rainbow Dash and Ride of the Valkyres. 'nough said. http://i.imgur.com/459jt.png

Ep 7
The pony tendency to over react was in full force when Dash got trapped by the rock, she went from zero to "I'm trapped FOOREVER!!! in five seconds flat, like her friends waiting at the finish line were just going to go have lunch or something if she didn't show up.

Makes me wonder if she didn't consider Gilda her best friend because they were hugely close, but because that was literally as good as it got friend-wise for her, someone who might come looking for her if she was missing, if there wasn't anything else to do.

In other words, maybe dash is the element of loyalty because she didn't get any herself when she was growing up.

Also image.

I think I've decided that the Quarry Eels are dedicated geovores that are very territorial, which is why nobody actually got devoured during the race.

*Huggles both* (Sorry for silence, I shouldn't have asked the question right before going out to lunch)

Right, new ponythread time? That means RiM character sheet reposting time!

Roleplaying is Magic, collation post

"Stolen and reposted from page 1 of last thread"

The Intro (WIP)


NB: From what I gather, the setting is still a WIP, not sure if it will be grimdark or not but here are some associated Siuis ramblings in response to various reactions from the ponythread.



And the Collated Character Sheets (Topaz and Esper, it took me FOREVER to find yours :smallsigh:)

I don't know if everyone intends to use these characters in the above PbP RP, since the discussion about the RiM framework and character sheets predates Siuis announcing his RPG.

Anyway, for comparison, have a gander:

Subsequently migrated to Canterlot to study at Celestia's school for gifted unicorns. Involvement in incident at Thamaturgical Research Department where [REDACTED], based on further review of [REDACTED] and recommendation [REDACTED] enlisted in Canterlot Royal guards. Service time 6 months, completed Basic training, awaiting first assignment. Based on training results, recommend [REDACTED] pending approval.

OOC Notes:

Anyone want to take a wild guess what kind of farm his cousins have? (Fun fact, if it were pemitted in these RP mechanics, I would have had him have a variant of "pinkie sense" which made him sneeze when something shady is going on nearby)

In case any of this seems familiar, its probably for good reason ... I kind of view Iggy as a pony version of Inspector Columbo.

Quaver Rest (Roleplaying Is Magic) (BlasTech)

Name: Quaver Rest

http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/298/6/b/quaver_rest_by_btech-d4dw6af.png

Talents: Charismatic, Agile
Job: Composer/conductor/Teacher
Skills: Knowledge (Musical theory), Singing, Fencing, Cooking
Guiding Element Of Harmony: Laughter

Background:

Born to a musical family in Canterlot, there was no doubt that her talents would lie in a similar field. Groomed on several instruments as a foal, she soon realised her passion for creating music, as opposed to simply making it.

She has shown some aptitude for it and has since become a composer of moderate note and a conductor of several classical ensembles in Canterlot(unfortunately, not including the Royal Philharmonic which plays exclusively for the Princesses). Her dream is to one day compose a piece and conduct it in front of the Royal Sisters.

She also teaches music at the Canterlot Musical College (CMC). Unfortunately for her, this is where a lot of the richer families send their offspring for mandatory music lessons. Between countless hours of fruitlessly correcting snot nosed royals, and hearing her music butchered at their hooves, she’s developed a rather caustic streak in her vocabulary. She enjoys fencing, simply because it gives her an outlet for the considerable frustrations of her position and also dabbles in cooking from time to time.

Candle Keeper (Roleplaying is Magic) (Tectonic Robot)

Roleplaying is Magic Character Sheet:
Name: Candle Keeper

Description: Thin, beady eyed, and wiry, Candle Keeper always looks desperate no matter what he's doing. By all rights his large coat-robe should make him seem larger, but all it does is seem to accentuate his thin frame. His voice is usually thin and reedy, but can change in to a bellow with shocking suddenness. Ponies often describe him as "unbalanced". Also of interest is the strange amulet he has around his neck, which glows disconcertingly.

Coloration: His fur is a very light grey-blue. His mane is black and stringy. His eyes (when large enough to be seen) are green-gray.

Race: Earth Pony
Age: Stallion
Special Purpose: Used to be candle making, but now he does whatever his patron tells him to.
Cutie Mark: A fancy candle. However, the candle is faded, and superimposed over it is an amulet identical to the one around his neck.
Primary Attributes: Body 2, Mind 3, Heart 2
Secondary Attributes:Health 4, Energy 5, Courage 5
Talents: Tough, Tireless
Job: Wandering Priest
Skills: Crafting: Candles, Crafting: Magical items, Hoisting, Running Away, Sneaking, etc. etc. etc. you guys think of something.

Magic: Although Candle is an Earth Pony, his amulet acts as proxy horn for him. Provided he brings the right ingredients, he work nearly any kind of magic with it.

Chargermane (Athanair)

http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq108/GitPLordXavius/Chargermane.png
Chargermane
Pegasus Stallion

Cutie Mark/Special Purpose: A (targe) shield with a sun motif, representing the purpose of defending Equestria and its people against any foe.
Primary Attributes: Body 2, Mind 2, Heart 3
Secondary Attributes: Health 5, Energy 4, Courage 5
Talents: Charismatic, Willful
Job: Royal Guard Trainer
Skills: Melee Combat, Monster Lore, Intimidation, History, Persuation, Military Leadership
Element of Harmony: Loyalty

Many years ago Chargermane proved himself to be a loyal champion of Princess Celestia's Royal Guard. Since he had a natural talent for command he soon earned a high rank within the order, and was known for being a more active commander than what was common in the Guard, on occasion even seeking out and fighting threats in the field.

However, after one campaign he decided to retire, and he has since trained promising recruits at the academy instead. He is known as a friendly and charismatic old pony, who genuinely cares for and encourages his students. However, he (and those of his old unit who still live) refuses to discuss what happened during his last mission, and it appears to be surprisingly hard to find out information about it.

He keeps a close eye on Paladin, the pony who was appointed Royal Agent. He sees him almost as his own son, and wants to make sure he does not make any major mistakes during his own mission to protect Equestria.

The pony known as Dragonscale hails from the same village as the Royal Agent Paladin, and they were friends growing up. She was often a bit timid (though not to Fluttershy's extent), in contrast to the bold Paladin, and she liked animals, especially reptiles. Even though dragons were rarely seen in those parts of Equestria she greatly admired them, and hoped to meet one one day.

Then one day she got what she wished for, but not quite the way she wanted. A young green dragon found the village in its hunt for food, and it saw the ponies as just that. Despite the threat to her families and friends she did not want to see the magnificent beast hurt, so when Paladin charged and fought it the young unicorn became upset.

Though she knew it was what had to be done to save them all, her anger clouded her judgement. Silently she escaped from the others and followed the injured dragon back into the forest. Strangely enough it did not lash out at her, but allowed her to treat it. And so her Cutie Mark appeared: a dragon.

Over the following years she stayed in the depths of the forest, becoming more dragon than pony. Still, she did not sever connections with her family completely, and returned every once in a while to see how they were doing. They were proud of her, of course, but still warned her that dragons are dangerous creatures not to be taken lightly. She assured them that she was a friend of the dragons, and that she was on a mission to ensure friendship between ponies and dragons.

But nothing lasts forever, it would seem. Paladin, her old friend, had become an agent of Celestia, a monster hunter, and dragons were his enemies. One dragon he fought was a young one not unlike the one he had fought back in the village when he gained his Mark, and it was a friend of Dragonscale. The battle was ferocious, and in the end the dragon retreated, heavily wounded from Paladin's attacks. She tried to heal it, but it was not enough. The dragon died, and that was the breaking point for her. She swore revenge on Equestria, and Paladin specifically. There could be no coexistence, at least not until the current order had fallen.

Inkblot (Roleplaying is Magic): (Neoseanster)

Roleplaying is Magic Character Sheet

Name: Inkblot

Description: An earth pony colt, somewhat on the thin side, and not athletic, but not unhealthy either. When not in conversation, he's often between appearing reservedly attentive and observant, and having something of an absent minded, thoughtful look at him, as if he's contemplating something. When traveling he often carries on his back plain saddlebags.

Coloration: Inkblot's coat is a dark blue, and his mane and tail are black.

Race: Earth Pony
Age: Colt
Special Purpose: Observing and "helping" ponies to work through their issues, with mixed success... but it's the thought that counts, right?
Cutie Mark: A peculiarly shaped inkblot, which somehow seems to remind the viewer of something different each time it's looked at, despite not actually changing in appearance... maybe a moth? Or a fox? Or a mask? Or two people? It's hard to say for sure (reminiscent of a Rorschach test (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_test), not that ponies would be too familiar with such).
Primary Attributes: Body 1, Mind 3, Heart 2
Secondary Attributes:Health 3, Energy 4, Courage 5
Talents: Smart, Perceptive
Job: Traveling Wannabe Psychoanalyst
Skills: (Mis)Interpertion, Persuasion, Observation, Reading, Wandering, Writing
Guiding Element of Harmony: Kindness

Silverbolt (Silverbolt)

Name: Silverbolt
Race: Pegasus
Age: Colt
Special Purpose: Stormcrafting
Cutie Mark: Two silver lightning bolts
Primary Attributes: Body 2 Mind 3 Heart 1
Secondary Attributes: Health 3 Energy 5 Courage 4
Talents: Smart, Tough
Job: Student/apprentice weatherpony
Skills: Math, Knowledge (Weather Magic), Research, Precision Lightning Strikes, Gaming, Mechanic
Guiding Element of Harmony: Honesty

Physical Description: A slightly overweight pegasus colt, with a deep midnight-blue coat, silver-streaked white mane and tail, and blue eyes that are typically behind a pair of black spectacles. Mane is typically pulled back into a ponytail.


Biography: Born and raised in a small town near Fillydelphia, Silverbolt has always been fascinated by storms and the weather engineers who create them. As a foal, he dreamed of growing up to work at the prestigious Cloudsdale Weather Factory, and hoofcrafting beautiful lightning storms to wow everypony.

But there was one obstacle standing in his way: Cloudsdale University. More specifically, its extremely popular (and, in Silver's view, over-coddled and over-privileged) hoofball team. Silverbolt had long been teased and bullied by more athletic pegasi because of his weight problem, nearsightedness, and his bookish nature; he had no desire to attend a school that put such a heavy emphasis on its sports program. So, instead, he did something completely unexpected: enrolled at the University of Canterlot. He found that he gets along better with most unicorns than most pegasi, and while the campus isn't really designed for somepony with wings, the classes are absolutely fascinating. He's particularly enjoyed learning about unicorn weather magic, feeling that knowing other ponies' ways of doing things can only help everypony in the long run.

Silverbolt is in the same year as Midnight at U.C.


Raindrop (Roleplaying is Magic): (Vent Reynolt)
Name: Raindrop
Race: Unicorn
Age: Colt
Special Purpose: Alter, control, and study Equestrian weather (Raindrop particularly enjoys storms)
Cutie Mark: The sun, being obscured by two rain clouds
Primary Attributes: Body 1, Mind 4, Heart 1
Secondary Attributes: Health 2, Energy 5, Courage 5
Talents: Smart, Tough
Job: Weather pony
Skills: Knowledge(Weather Magic), Weather research, Knowledge(Obscure Pegasus history), Wilderness survival, Use Rope, Stalking Midnight, Knowledge (Cloud Architecture), Knowledge (Astronomy)
Guiding Element: Kindness
Magic:
Effects: Animate, Change, Create, Diminish
Subjects: Air, Body

Bio: Raindrop was born and raised in the suburbs outside Fillydelphia to a mixed Unicorn/Pegasus family. Raindrop had always been fascinated with the weather work that his dad did, so when Raindrop finally figured out that weather magic was his special talent, nopony was particularly surprised.

After Raindrop learned the cloud-walk spell, he moved to Cloudsdale to study advanced weather magic and weather control. After Raindrop finished his schooling (because nopony wants to hear the boring details of his time at Cloudsdale U.), Raindrop joined a weather team in a small town outside of Manehattan. When he has free time from the weather team, he likes to watch the weather that occurs without any pony influence in the Everfree forest.

I may have to reformat Candle Keeper in this thing! He has an extra ability point here and things have changed in his backstory.

THANQOL IS BEST PONY


Thanqol, are you a psychologist? I would happily refer all of my insane friends.
Considering what I'm about to say, I might need help more than them.

Attention Everypony!

In approximately 12 hours, I will be recording a song of your choice.

On the ukulele.

On my bike.

While riding over Vancouver's Burrard Street Bridge.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a6/Burrard_Street_Bridge_2.jpg/800px-Burrard_Street_Bridge_2.jpg
I mentioned in the last thread that this was a thing I did regularly, but it's never been recorded.

And now I do it for you.

Here are your choices:

Pinkie's No Fear Song
Winter Wrap-Up
Cutie Mark Crusader's Theme Song
Equestria Girls

Don't worry, everyone, I won't get hurt. I'm a trained professional.
Or at least I play one on stage...
Definitely Equestria Girls! Win!

Thanquol - That's one hell of an impressive and knowledgeable line of thought. :smallcool:

I vote Equestria Girls, Vbob.



Just because I find it funny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIP6zCis2RQ&feature=related)


The nodding is out of sync with the music, and that makes me SAD. :smallfrown:

@Thanquol & Anarion:
Very impressive character analysis, although I admit I'm at a loss as to the terms Thanquol used (Thyrsus and Obrimos, for RD and TS respectively). I'd like a bit of explanation of those. Um... that is... if you don't mind...

Personally my favorite pony to analyze is Pinkie Pie, although I'm wary to do so here without first re-watching all the relevant episodes (Party of One, especially) and brushing up on my psychology terminology.

Anyway, I have internet back, and it seems to be working alright.http://i.imgur.com/2E2Va.png If my computer takes this as a cue to lose its internet again someone at Comcast is going to DIE.

...i'm not an addict i swear *twitch*

EDIT: Huh. I was going to jump on the bandwagon and make a RiM character, but it would seem that Shadowy has already taken the role my OC Shadow would have taken. And used the pic of Shadow in the process. I don't mind, it's just that I would have liked to have been informed. Maybe I can make Copperhooves or a random pony instead...

This is a hard decision... I think I'm leaning towards Winter Wrap Up. But then again Equestria Girls is also quite awesome. But I like Giggle at the Ghosties(the official name) too. I think I'm going to go with... D. Equestria Girls, Final answer.

Discord vs Octavia in the strings battle to end them all! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5gvjHGJEe0&feature=related)

(Yeah its a Devil Went Down To Georgia PMV)


Here are your choices:

Pinkie's No Fear Song
Winter Wrap-Up
Cutie Mark Crusader's Theme Song
Equestria Girls

Don't worry, everyone, I won't get hurt. I'm a trained professional.
Or at least I play one on stage...

I vote for Giggle at the Ghostie for much the reason Kurgan had. Its perfect for nonchalantly performing stunts too.



Ep 7
The pony tendency to over react was in full force when Dash got trapped by the rock, she went from zero to "I'm trapped FOOREVER!!! in five seconds flat, like her friends waiting at the finish line were just going to go have lunch or something if she didn't show up.

Makes me wonder if she didn't consider Gilda her best friend because they were hugely close, but because that was literally as good as it got friend-wise for her, someone who might come looking for her if she was missing, if there wasn't anything else to do.

In other words, maybe dash is the element of loyalty because she didn't get any herself when she was growing up.

Also image.

I think I've decided that the Quarry Eels are dedicated geovores that are very territorial, which is why nobody actually got devoured during the race.

Fascinating thought...
... we do know already that Dash overcompensates to hide her insecurities. However I think this might be a bit different. What's really driving Dash here is a love of freedom. Personal freedom that is. She very obviously loves flying more then anything in the world, it is about her worst nightmare to not be able to. And to not be able to because she's trapped (restricting her further) and doesn't even have someone who caused it (a la Discord) is probably Rainbow's worst nightmare.

And so she panics, even though rationally she's hardly going to be there forever.

However the larger idea. Yeah doesn't seem like Dash had many friends growing up.

What the three chief differences would be, though? :smallconfused:

Fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency and fanatical devotion to Celestia?

My interpretation is that Gilda is what Rainbow Dash (used to) think she wanted to be. She's strong, confidant, and doesn't care what people think of her. And so RD hung out with her because she thought that Gilda was "cool."
I think that RD's insecurity issues also relates to her friendship with Fluttershy. Maybe Rainbow sees a little of her own problems in Fluttershy and wants to be that Cool Big Sis (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CoolBigSis) to help Fluttershy be more confidant.

Thanquol was referring to the various paths in Mage:The Awakening, which is part of White Wolf's world of darkness setting. I'm more familiar with exalted, personally, but I know the terms at least. Obrimos (http://wiki.white-wolf.com/worldofdarkness/index.php?title=Obrimos), Thyrsus (http://wiki.white-wolf.com/worldofdarkness/index.php?title=Thyrsus).

That video was really well made. I wasn't sure how good it would be with all the hand drawings at first, but once they got into the scenes for the fiddle songs, it was great.

Regarding episode analysis
Yeah I think that's a good explanation for why Dash panics. Also remember that she reacts badly to the tortoise's arrival despite her panic until it actually saves her, so part of the issue is her realization that she judging a book by its cover and really knew nothing about the tortoise's abilities or character.

He's a blank flank! I like the color scheme though, eye-color goes well with the body. Is there a story behind the ear?

Sounded like "she" to me, but I think Rainbow is the most easily mistaken pony for a guy colt, so it could be Pinkie going meta on us.

*I get the impression, sometimes, that Cloudsdale is a pretty harsh place to grow up. It is, after all, basically our only source for real, canon bullying in the entire series.

monkeyboyinc has the CM, and I don't know how to put it on! 'Tis too complicated for this fellow.

Thank you about the color scheme! I think's it pretty good, yah.

I'll probably come up with a reason later. He probably got it while he was still The Patron's stooge. I just really, really liked how it looked.

EDIT: Huh. I was going to jump on the bandwagon and make a RiM character, but it would seem that Shadowy has already taken the role my OC Shadow would have taken. And used the pic of Shadow in the process. I don't mind, it's just that I would have liked to have been informed. Maybe I can make Copperhooves or a random pony instead... (gears in brain start turning rustily)

Erp, sorry guys. Looks like my mistake and I'm not quite sure how it happened. Might have gotten confused due to reading the fanfic at the time or just had a brain derp.

Soooo whose character is Shadowy, and are the stats right? Byaku, do you want me to post up your current Copperhooves or do you want to revise it further or back to its original concept?

EDIT: Thanqol, just found out about another NSW meetup being organised for 10 Dec. Just passing it on, not sure of my attendance yet (missed the one being held today :smallfrown:)

Wonderful, I think I'm free that day. Keep me posted.


I don't know, I think Pinkie Pie's no-fear song is curiously appropriate to the task at hand, really.

Thanquol - That's one hell of an impressive and knowledgeable line of thought. :smallcool:

Thank you :smallredface:



The nodding is out of sync with the music, and that makes me SAD. :smallfrown:

@Thanquol & Anarion:
Very impressive character analysis, although I admit I'm at a loss as to the terms Thanquol used (Thyrsus and Obrimos, for RD and TS respectively). I'd like a bit of explanation of those. Um... that is... if you don't mind...

Personally my favorite pony to analyze is Pinkie Pie, although I'm wary to do so here without first re-watching all the relevant episodes (Party of One, especially) and brushing up on my psychology terminology.

As Anarion said, they're Paths from Mage: The Awakening. Obrimos is the Path of the Mighty, which is associated with the tarot card of Strength. For an Obrimos, success is about success - winning leads to winning. But their problem is, with unlimited power at their disposal, it's so easy to apply it unwisely and break the world. It's no co-incidence that when Twilight defeats the Ursa it's almost as a last resort, and was yet a calculated and measured and researched decision. Thereby, it was the most wise application of her Strength so far. The Path's ideal form associated with the Christian philosophy of "Power Balanced By Love".

Thyrsus is the Path of Ecstasy, which is associated with the tarot card of the Moon. And they find their magic in action without thought, in the way of Zen masters. Ecstasy means an obliteration of the mind, pure joy found in using your body as you are meant to, finding yourself in the action of doing. Letting go of fear and doubt, letting go of thought, and remembering that every breath is unique. It's ideal is the Tantra philosophy of Infinite Subject - there are no distinct objects. You are the prey as well as the predator. To perceive otherwise is to lose divinity.

Pinkie Pie is an Arcanthus, but I'll elaborate on this later.


Thanqol, are you a psychologist? I would happily refer all of my insane friends.
Considering what I'm about to say, I might need help more than them.

I know a lot about crazy people. Nothing interests me more.

My tendency is to make not-crazy people crazy rather than the other way around, though. Looking for those beautiful fracture lines in psyches and personalities.

Dear Princess Celestia,
Today, I learned that "Fiddle" can be used to refer to any bowed stringed instrument, and not just the violin. Why have you let today's pony educational system fall into such disrepair that I need to turn to the interstables to find such information?

Also, please send money.

Ok, ok. I know when I'm outvoted.

So rewatched the episode to check some stuff folks have in spoilers, considering I was have asleep the first time.

This episode just screams PhoeKun at me. I can't explain it. I've tried. I'd need a couple hours with Thanqlight Sparqol, his mane all done up in a psychiatric bun, before I could gve coherent reasons. But PhoeKun? Definitely. All over this episode; her mannerisms, a bit of writing style in the speech patterns. Am I imagining things, or just forging stranger connections than usual?

I'd be down for 3-4 episodes rolled into one harmonious single unit. I think the comparative weakness of our two part episodes can be traced to the 44 minutes they have to be pushed into.

Mind you the genre for these things has been... meh I think. Even good shows like the PPG or Teen Titans didn't have terribly good movies. Why I have not explored, though way back Transformers can be tied to the Kill 'Em All attitude it takes.

At best it would still be an extended episode. Something I think can be tied to that you'd have to throw out the entire staff to escape the conceptual box of being a television show versus being a movie which of course releases the opposing demon of who could know the show well enough to do a film of it?

I think only Star Trek has managed the transition from little to big screen. And they are at 50%

And here I thought the combat posture I took whenever I heard thrysus was bad.

But he's Thanqol, man. Y'know how the Japanese add vowel sounds between consonants because of the way they roll them around? Thanqol is Australian, he can't not add in the R between A and C, any more than you could accurately pronounce binary or read alternating current.
He gets a pass.

Well, it would ether be a nice big-ol' multi-part episode,a direct-to-video, or a actual big screen one.

It woud not go over well on the big screen, considering Flash does not look that good on it. A direct to video thing was done several times durning the other installments of this show, but the currant incarnation is rather far removed from its roots, so a muti-parter that could be strung together would be the best bet.

A full one and a half hour of pony! "dies"

A) New face animations. Aren't they... Too human sometimes? :smallconfused:

Some of these were right in the middle of uncanny valley <shudder>

B) No one noticed and or quoted certain line from RD? :smallconfused:

"You would think that, Twilight. And that's why you would never qualify to be my pet."

Thread, I'm... disappointed :smalltongue:

Come to think of it, seeing how Fluttershy kept completely missing the point, I'd say in my personal canon it had more Twilidash moments than FS/RD ones :P

Hello everyone, I am new around these parts! :smallsmile:

I am not really sure if this is the right place to post this or not, so if it is not I apologize before hand.

I have recently discovered an awesome project over at Youtube that could really use some attention and help. A youtubber by the name of sdoggingsworth is looking for anyone interested in singing the Equestrian National Anthem (originally written by Midnight Cobra on DA)! Their original request, their email address, and a link to the video are provided below.


I am also still working on a project to try to involve as many ponies as possible, since this is OUR anthem. I want to try to get vocal tracks of folks singing along, so that I can mix them together, and try to make it sound like there's an army of us singing as one. Contact me for details using my sdoggingsworth gmail address if you're interested in contributing.

That is an unfair comparison, as those movies had the *Celestia send it to the moon*ed BATMAN. (maybe "Celestia send it to the moon" should be my new Unusual Euphemism:smalltongue:)

Vote now if you haven't already. You could break the tie.

I gotta go with the CMC theme song if it ain't too late, on evidence from SiuiS


This episode just screams PhoeKun at me. I can't explain it. I've tried. I'd need a couple hours with Thanqlight Sparqol, his mane all done up in a psychiatric bun, before I could gve coherent reasons. But PhoeKun? Definitely. All over this episode; her mannerisms, a bit of writing style in the speech patterns. Am I imagining things, or just forging stranger connections than usual?

Having brought said up with her in person, apparently she hates turtles. Who knew?


One day, you will say Arcanthus one too many times, and I will leap through my monitor to strangle you, screaming

THERE IS NO R

Then why did I add Arcanthus to Firefox's dictionary?

Probably the same reason I added "Fishmongler".


It must be horrible to be around people like me, then, who have no such fracture lines.

I am perfectly sane.

http://i.imgur.com/Npxit.png

PERFECTLY SANE

Anyone who enters a state of repressive denial upon hearing the suggestion of harem ponies has fracture lines big enough for me to fly an Arwing through.




Oh you're back
I suppose this means Jayden is off the hook
And does not need be drawn in harem pants Which is awesome because she'd kill me for it probably.

Pity. This is something I'm morbidly curious to see.


And here I thought the combat posture I took whenever I heard thrysus was bad.

Mea culpa.


But he's Thanqol, man. Y'know how the Japanese add vowel sounds between consonants because of the way they roll them around? Thanqol is Australian, he can't not add in the R between A and C, any more than you could accurately pronounce binary or read alternating current.
He gets a pass.

I will take any bollocks defence others subscribe to me.



Also, on the topic of minds breaking, this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-rvscLpwFvw). It's become one of my favourite pony songs. Utterly tragic.

So fascinatingly while this episode apparently caused Nightmare Fuel for some of its target demographic. From anecdotal evidence on Mrs. Faust's deviantart account that drew a response. It probably not where you are thinking by the way.

See for yourself (http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1603670/2287576139) (obvious spoilers is obvious)

I can't decide whether that makes these kids more or less complex then me at their age. I know I couldn't watch a lot of the Sharptooh scenes in Land Before Time for years. Their concern though is rather more interesting.


Two things that sort of disturbed me in Ep 7:

A) New face animations. Aren't they... Too human sometimes? :smallconfused:

B) No one noticed and or quoted certain line from RD? :smallconfused:

"You would think that, Twilight. And that's why you would never qualify to be my pet."

Thread, I'm... disappointed :smalltongue:

Come to think of it, seeing how Fluttershy kept completely missing the point, I'd say in my personal canon it had more Twilidash moments than FS/RD ones :P


A) I honestly have no idea what you are referring to here without a particular example. I think any notions of non-anthropomorphism fly out the window as soon as we can get two eyes on a pony facial exspression. Some of them were so incredibly cute I once again contracted the diabeetus.

B) While I suppose it technically doesn't count I heard it mentioned at least two independent times on IRC. I assumed everypony went "lulz high octane shipping fuel" right away and moved along it out of their systems by the time they hit the thread.

Besides Twi/Princess is OT3.



Batman. BtAS, Batman Beyond, and The Batman all had some decent movies. (Mask of the Phantasm, Return of the Joker, The Batman vs Dracula...)

I was always vague disappointed with Return of the Joker. Its not bad persay but I remember being disappointed it became Mark Hamill's final major work on the character. I guess I considered the reveal a bit lame, almost as lame as the JLU episode of Batman Beyond.

You also don't mention say Mystery of the Batwoman which is a decidedly lesser offering. There's other counter examples associated with the DCAU like Brainiac Attacks. Which I think is the point, even the DCAU can be rather uneven with these movie treatments.

I still would love a FiM movie but I think we'd best have appropriate expectations on the result.

If I haven't been Pinkie by some of the more complex and disturbing welcome posts

Further more that is a great song, it never ceases to amaze me what creativity comes out of the fandom. So very high quality.

Though if I might comment while a wonderful song is sounded more like a hymn then an anthem if that's a meaningful difference. Given I don't exactly know more then mine own countries... which is at its heart a drinking song.

Still off hand I would say this share far more with Battlehymn of the Republic, several classic hymns I can't remember by name, with a touch of Amazing Grace in there. Not that its bad by ANY means just some commentary on what it evokes for me.

I'm a little confused about that parent's comment though. Were the kids upset because they thought the other pets were injured because of the contest? If so, it's easy to show them the Falcon shaking hands with the turtle tortoise and the scene at the end where everyone made it through the race.

On the other hand, if the kids were upset because the other animals didn't get chosen, that seems like a wonderful moment to teach the lesson that everyone can't always get everything they want. 4 years old is quite young, but it's plenty old to understand you don't get everything you ask for and sometimes other people get different things than you do.

Erp, sorry guys. Looks like my mistake and I'm not quite sure how it happened. Might have gotten confused due to reading the fanfic at the time or just had a brain derp.

Soooo whose character is Shadowy, and are the stats right? Byaku, do you want me to post up your current Copperhooves or do you want to revise it further or back to its original concept?

Shadowy is Shadowy's character, not mine. x.x sorry about the confusion. As to what gets added, I'm having a fun time making a backstory for Copperhooves, who is an /entirely different character./ Although, if there's something that needs fixing or something I screwed up, or just something that could be done better, feel free to change it around. x.x (self-conscious byaku rai is self-conscious now)

I am thinking about starting up either a podcast or video series about pony history and other such things. It would be like old G1 stuff and how they tie into FiM with episode reviews, character studies, fanfic reviews and other stuff.

I am looking for a bit more inspiration so:

Please PM me with what you would like to see/hear on a podcast or video series like this. It will span from G1 to FiM so anything is game.

Thanks everypony! It's great to see this is still going! (Holy cripes, 32 threads?!) You guys are awesome. :3 Thanks!

I read the problem as:
They were concerned for what happens to the loosing animals since they don't get to be Rainbow's Pet. Hence the suggestion of calmly explaining how they were already in Fluttershy's care.

Also finally found some Iron Hoof: Fluttershy is a like real animal shelters, two weeks and its the gas chamber for you kitties!


I'm concerned that I immediately went to the same comment that you did. Very concerned.

I'd say as you should be but I just spun the whole thing into Iron Hoof so I really shouldn't talk.

Some interesting news about the (terribly low) chance of getting a complete season boxed set of DVDs on Equestria Daily.
http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/11/more-in-depth-information-on-mlp-dvd.html

Analysis (spoilered for length, no ep 7 spoilers present whatsoever)
I've been thinking about this issue since EQD started talking about it and I think that Shout Factory might be wrong, but it's tough to prove it because the DVD sales are a perfect example of how excruciatingly hard it is to measure demand. Sadly, if I were the economic adviser to Shout Factory at this moment, I would probably advise them against making the DVD.

If we wanted to get season DVD sets made, I think we would need to do the following things
1. Get an accurate measure of the size of the brony community
2. Get an accurate measure of season DVD demand amongst the brony community.
3. Get that info to someone who can make it seem exciting both to shout factory and to Hasbro.

By my own estimate, the brony community is between 50,000 and 100,000 people. EQD gets an average response between 20k-30k unique IP addresses on its polls, and I think that represents fewer people than visit the site, which in turn is notably fewer than all the scattered fans and friends of fans that like the show.

The big leap of faith is how many people would buy the DVD. If you talked to someone in marketing and told them that we can all get the show for free via youtube, they'd probably kick you out of their office for wasting their time. I am of the opinion that our community would surprise people by buying the DVD in larger numbers despite free access because we want to support the show. But even then, selling 30k-50k DVD boxes would be at all order. That means nearly half of all bronys would have to buy the thing (by my estimate). Not impossible, but if I had to take a shot in the dark, I'd guess closer to 10-20% would buy it.

Wow... those are some wimpy children.... by 4 i had already seen Jurassic park. and by like 10 i was watching Starship Troopers.

I have once played a game of chess where I lost in the lowest possible number of moves. This conversation feels very much like that game of chess.

Steering on a bike is accomplished primarily through minute shifts of your center of gravity anyway. The handlebars function like training wheels for your body, so you don't have to maintain your own balance as well as that of the bike; learning to control the bike without propping yourself up on the handlebars is just the next step up. It is more dangerous to have one hand on the bars than it is to have none.
Bikes are wonderful devices. They teach you so much about proprioception and balance.

Some interesting news about the (terribly low) chance of getting a complete season boxed set of DVDs on Equestria Daily.
http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/11/more-in-depth-information-on-mlp-dvd.html

Analysis (spoilered for length, no ep 7 spoilers present whatsoever)

Not really nessecary with the spoiler, we all hang around SiuS of the Megapost afterall. However while interesting your analysis missed a detail namely the following quote:


For a four-disc complete first season, we'd probably need somewhere in the realm of 30,000-50,000 "sold through" for there to be the chance of a second full-season volume.

Emphasis mine becaus. We could have several million bronies or other watchers of the show and it would not matter by what is being put out. What he is referring to is established sales.

In other words we would have to get bronies to go out and buy those DVDs first to establish the reality of those sales first, before we they would consider season boxes. And that's only a loose probablity.

Also while maybe I'm over cynical but while this Shout Factory guy seems sympathetic, he seems ignorant of the already existent iTunes release:



There's also the question of digital rights. We're not guaranteed digital rights to every property we license. We try. God knows we try. But studios are eager to keep those for themselves. After all, it's yet another source of revenue for them. Makes perfect sense. I have no idea if we have the digital rights to these. It's not my department. If we do, maybe you'll see them appear on iTunes or something. Not sure. But, again, it would likely only be the episodes we're releasing at any given time. Why would we want to compete with ourselves by providing you with the full season digitally, if we're in need of selling a high number of single-disc releases in order to continue making them??

Again emphasis mine. For those that may not be aware iTunes has every episode right now. In fact it is to my knowledge the only source of water-mark free pony footage out there. I cannot read the above quote and connect it to actual knowledge of this. While maybe I'm overly cynical but not being aware of what would be strictly your only legal competitor seems to push the credibility of this guy as informed to what's going on.

Put simply I don't think this represents any actual communication by a guy both truly informed, or in a decision making position.

I dare say I'm rethinking my decision to purchase even single disc formats to show support because I'm not sold on there being actual sympathy or interest when placed against the "market to kids to nag their parents" status quo. Which is complete crock as an industry so I probably shouldn't single out Shout! Factory... However a bit of cursory research and well compare this:


Hasbro created a series for very young audiences. Turns out adults like it, too. But this isn't The Clone Wars. Or even Transformers: Prime. I'm sorry, gang.

Which is ironic when you consider that this same company decided C.O.P.S. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C.O.P.S._%28animated_TV_series%29) merited a 4-disc release of 22 episodes with some bonus material. Do you remember that cartoon, as opposed to the unrelated reality TV show? I do and I liked it as a kid, decent toys too, but I don't think I ever encountered another kid that knew about it. Yeah I'll buy FiM is not Star Wars or Transformers (yet) but that's setting the bar a touch high when a total unknown series merits at least attempts at larger releases.

Which I think just outline how the entire industry is against what we as concious paying adult parties want. Still I get increasingly fishy of this Shout! Factory more I poke around.

And EqD missed this gem (or posted before it existed)

I can tell you now that they won't be in production or broadcast order. Hasbro and our distributor, Vivendi, have both asked for themed releases. I'm watching these episodes and with the exception of a couple 2-parters, I see nothing that ties them together into a chronological story. They are certainly standalone episodes.

Transformers: Prime is a different thing altogether. Expect those to be in order, as they're designed for an older audience.

Or they could watch Watership Down. No other cartoon will ever bother them again. Problem solved!

Eh, I read Watership Down when I was 5-6 and honestly, all I remember was putting it away in 3/4 of the book because I found it... boring? That is, not scary at all.

Come to think of it, maybe I should read it now. Hmm.


They were concerned for what happens to the loosing animals since they don't get to be Rainbow's Pet. Hence the suggestion of calmly explaining how they were already in Fluttershy's care.

Also finally found some Iron Hoof: Fluttershy is a like real animal shelters, two weeks and its the gas chamber for you kitties!

No no no.

Gas chambers? That would be the waste. No, we have canon explanation from Ep 7 instead.

Heh :smallbiggrin:


But even then, selling 30k-50k DVD boxes would be at all order. That means nearly half of all bronys would have to buy the thing (by my estimate). Not impossible, but if I had to take a shot in the dark, I'd guess closer to 10-20% would buy it.

I'd say closer to 5-10%. I don't know if little girl parents would make up for it.


It is more dangerous to have one hand on the bars than it is to have none.

Martial arts parable.

There is a phenomenon amongst professional teachers known as the Thosuand Ninja Principle. Every sensei tells their students "don't use what you know; run. Always run" and the students inevitably ask "what if...?" and supply a contrived scenario which seems to preclude running. This goes in stages, but it's always the same.

"what if I'm in an alley and don't see the guy?" "awareness is always your first weapon. Run, and be on the lookout next time."
"what if three guys surround me?" "why didnt you see three men approach? Perception and awareness, always."
"ok, what if they were hiding in the alley?" "why are you goin down alleys when the street goes the same way?"

In the end, the answer is "Yea, if you find yourself in a dark alley surrounded by a thousand ninjas who all surprised you, hemmed you in and then drew Uzis, you can use what you know. But you've already failed. You went someplace dangerous for no reason, you did not exercise caution, you dropped your awareness, and you continued even after the first clues that something was amiss- in such a situation, you deserve what you get.

Balance, control, and awareness. Waves don't phase my balance, because I see them coming and shift. I have a perfect fighting record; 8 wins, 0 losses, 1 TKO, because I mostly avoid fighting (and there are a couple in there I'm ashamed to admit I was willing to engage in). I've never broken a bone in my body1 because I've always noticed when something drastic was goin to happen, before it did- feel the wood shift and move before the tree branch breaks. See the thorn before my tire blew. See the vein in my brother's forehead before I mouth off some more. See the cupboard above me before I stand up abruptly.

So why, by stars and fire, can I not wait that extra 2 seconds to see how autocorrect messes with things before hitting that moon-banished send button! :smallfurious: :smalleek:

Seriously. You'd think I would have learned by now.


1: Sadly, this may no longer be true. I'm pretty sure I had a boxer's break from punching a wall, but the symptoms were all in line with minor tendon wear rather than a fracture. I also messed up my toe, kicking - you guessed it - a wall, but that was while trying to show somepony why I don't dance.

On the plus side, they now believe in my inability to dance. :smallwink

The movie's a lot more entertaining* from a kid's perspective. The book is quite excellent, though.

*Yes, entertainig. I watched it when I was 5 or so. My opinion on the movie was along the lines of "wow I didn't know bunnies were that cool!"



Until you hit first unevenness in the road or need to do trivial thing like, I don't know, sharp turn or braking. But on perfectly spherical, masses and odorless track, maybe.

Well one does need hands for braking. But I can go over gravelly ground and rocky dirt tracks without hands no problem. The trick, as SiuiS says, is being aware of troublesome parts before they politely invite you to kiss the ground.



I just had a thought:
If a pony's special talent was,say, brain surgery or rocket science, how would they obtain it? Would they be a blank flank until they were old enough to obtain the education necessary?

I think it's funnier to think they just have a natural talent for it: perform brain surgery on their cat with kitchen utensils, build a rocket in their back yard (with a box of scraps!), that sort of thing.

Some interesting news about the (terribly low) chance of getting a complete season boxed set of DVDs on Equestria Daily.
http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/11/more-in-depth-information-on-mlp-dvd.html

I'm actually not so bothered about a boxed set, so long as they release all the episodes (I'd say in order, but then again FiM didn't show in chronological order, so it's less urgent than some). I don't mind buying shows in sets of four to five episodes, so long as I can get them all in the end (I did it with Pokemon, W.I.T.C.H (for the only season the *&8£%^$ released), I'd have done it with Winx Club except they release like three volumes over here and then stopped and then I couldn't be arsed to get the US versions). Boxed sets are convienant, but I'm prepared to accept smaller set at the end of the day.

One question I've never see sensibly answered is why it is so extremely rare to see more than four-five episodes per disk of a 22 minute cartoon - when "adult" TV shows comfortably and consistently fit four (possibly even five) 44 minute episodes (often including extras and commentaries for all four, see Stargate SG-1) per disk. One would have thought, if one is doing a season boxed set, one would want to keep the production costs down, and use ase few DVDs as possible, yet I've seen only a handful of places do this (and only then on splitting stuff like Naruto's 13 episode half-seasons over two instead of three disks.)

Excuse me that rant was both unbecoming.

On the other hand, that is a very good point, and this guy's a bit of a pillock.

What baffles me is the logic that people will buy crap so as to get a proper release later, when this doesn't happen - really, you're putting casual buyers ahead of more serious one...?), and why the industry is of the opinion that children are that stupid, because they really aren't.

Of course, the DVD/movie/TV industry IS just out to stuff us for as much money as possible (see: travesty of regioning, which was artifically induced specifically and soley for screw us all collectively out of as much money as possible).

The GOOD news is, then Shout only get to hold the license for the US, and therefore other countries who may have different distributers may not be complete prats. (Austraila, as I've said before, is rather good in this regard.) (And this is why you should always get a DVD player that can be converted to multiregion (i.e. the cheap ones from ASDA and Tescos...))

Well, obviously if your a pony then you can't have enough pony. That makes sense. But still! Your entire life/schedule shouldn't revolve around one thing! You need variety, interests, friends and activities!

But you can find so much variety within pony itself! So many different genres to read, so many different types of music to explore. So many people to talk to, so many theories to craft about a grand total of 33 episodes! There's just so much to do!

As a note, the first chapter is decidedly darker than most of the other ones. It's also the "set up" chapter.

Hey, I know that guy! You should totally become a regular here so I don't have to feel so bad about dissolving my PBP! :smalltongue:

In all seriousness, I'll check it out and shoot you a PM with my thoughts.


I hate when my shadow moves independently of me... :smalleek:

While walking home Wednesday night, I wasn't really paying attention to it or anything, so when the beams of a passing car's headlights made my shadow seem to run up to me, I kinda freaked out for a second or two. :smallsigh:

I feel like a certain somepony now... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlkJTYIjqcQ)

Quick update: I'm not going to be as scarce as I'd expected, but any time I'm in chat, there's a very high chance that I'll have to disappear with no warning. I might not even have time to throw out a "Hold on, I need to take care of something," but I will try to do so. There's no way I'm going to even try to catch the episode when it airs...

Don't feel bad, I still haven't even gotten a chance to see the new episode yet. And I'm pissed at somepony for spoiling the heck out of it for me. On the Boston Metro, no less.


I do believe you had a wee bit less pony to go through, no?:smalltongue:

Seven episodes is only Two hours and Twenty minutes extra! Once you've gone through all of season 1 in one sitting, you may as well polish it off.


The only thing I know about the list is that (only using this thread), SiuiS and Braz and Mids are top.

This is the cutest thing


You're talking to the guy who (somehow) got third place for Fluttershy in the Pony in the Playground competition. I'd be a disgrace to the title (however undeserved it is) if I didn't have nearly crippling self-confidence issues and social anxiety.

And this extremely pathetic part of me wants to point out that you're the only one saying such kind things...

No, he's not, not anymore! They look good man, stop being so self conscious. I already told you that you are an awesome pony, and I want to see you again at BroNYcon dude. :smallbiggrin:


I 8elieve I cann8 argue with that 8elief.

vRISKA, WHY DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SO CONFRONTATIONAL? }:(


SiuiS's phone has Trojan.Midnight virus. :smallbiggrin:

Dude. My brain has the Trojan.Midnight virus. Except the changes it wrought are so cute that I don't want to run ponybytes. (+1 Internet to any Techie that gets the reference.)


I couldn't ask for a better opportunity.
Someponies have been worried that the IRC is killing off the ponythread, so I decided to do some data analysis. I measured the hours per ponythread for every single ponythread, graphed them out, and found the mean and standard deviation. Here's what I got:
Graph
http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z270/coolcalbert/FullBar.png
You'll note that we appear to go through cycles, and that the speed of the ponythread appears to be, if anything, inversely related(?!). But that's a very loose correlation at best.
Further, the threads we had going during the first season would routinely have 4 to 5 shows per thread. The first probably had 8 or so, it lasted over 2 months. I didn't include it because it was a massive outlier. I didn't use it for any of the calculations either, so the numbers are actually a bit low. If you want to see how much it throws off the data, see this graph.
http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z270/coolcalbert/BarGraph.png
The mean of the data was 204.23 hours, and the standard deviation was 69.99 hours. Thread XXX was the only thread we had entirely with the IRC chat, and that lasted 235 hours. This places it firmly within one standard deviation, and thus likely nothing to be worried about. However, to be fair it appears that the distribution has a longer left tail. Still, nothing to worry about.
Obviously we don't have much to go on, outside of thread XXX, but I also worked out the speed of thread XIX post-IRC formation. Titanium Fox announced the creation of the IRC channel at 3:07 PM October 25. The next 20.33 (repeating) pages were finished in 77 hours. If we take that data and assume the speed would stay constant, this would put us at 189.344 hours per thread. Which is below the mean. Also note that based on my personal experience and anecdotal evidence, the IRC received a huge boom in the beginning, and then leveled off. The pace of the IRC has remained fairly constant over the last week or two since the beginning.

My thoughts: The ponythread moves at the pace people post in it, and people post when they have time. That means that summer is going to move rapidly, and then it levels off when school begins. Further, a number of prolific posters have been inundated with troubles recently. There may be some slowdown due to the IRC, we can't be certain because of the afore-mentioned confounding variables, but most of the slowdown should be attributed to the change in season. Posters were used to summer speeds that simply cannot be maintained indefinitely into the school year. You'll notice that late August marks a hundred hour/thread rise in time from our low of 109 hours/thread in late July/early August. This supports my point.

In conclusion, IRC is probably not slowing down the ponythread dramatically. I'll continue measuring and calculating when this thread is finished, but it is incredibly unlikely (and very nearly impossible) for the IRC to "kill" the ponythread. We haven't even been able to isolate any slowdown caused by the IRC at all from all the confounding variables.

Here's the data set if anypony's interested. I did the calculations by hand, so you might catch a mistake or two (or three or eight or twelve). It's in the spoiler:

Thank you thank you thank you. I wanted to run the numbers but never managed to actually find the time to. This is exactly what I wanted to see. We are within one standard deviation of the norm. That is not bad for the fact that the IRC is siphoning off a lot of the RP, and that Real Life is smacking almost everypony in the face.


Ah, yes. Must pay the Trixie Tax. :smallbiggrin:

---artists notes copied from the DA page---
So to explain it's just my personnal view of Rainbow Dash and Soarin' family ^3^

From left to right :

Name : Cloud Puff
Gender : Female
Eyes color : Green
Body color : Dark Blue (like Soarin' Mane) whith pale blue part on hooves, nose aread and the end of the wings... with few freckles too.
Mane Color : Dark rainbow

She's the eldest of the family and she's have a calm personnality (not shy... calm). It's hard for her as the eldest being a pegasus and her both parents being in the wonderbolts. She feel a lot of pressure on her wings since a lot of ponies think she will be like her parents but in fact she's not that much interested in flying and all. She actually prefer too cook sweets food (mostly for her demanding father). Because of all that, even thought she's the eldest, she still doesn't have her cutie mark....

Name : Sunrise Brisk
Gender : Male
Eyes color : Dark magenta
Body color : Blue Pale
Mane Color : Dark Blue but the wildest locks are Rainbow.

Second foal of the family and quite hyper but doesn't like to do a lot of efforts execpt for funny things... well let's say interesting things in general that got him in a lot of trouble most of time. In term of personnality you can easily say that he have a lot of common points with rainbow dash.
He's fan number one's of the wonderbots team especially his parents...He admire them a lot and when he talk about them, his hyper side is multiplied x10 He want to be like them but since he's to lazy to train... it will probably take a long while to...maybe...achieve this...

Name : White whirl
Gender : Female
Eyes color : Light magenta
Body color : Really light blue pale, nearly white with white part
Mane Color : Light Rainbow

She's the last filly of the family. A newborn one so for now I can't say much about her :p

I really glad how Cloud Puff turned and I just want a plush of White whirl XD

This is made of all of the D'aww. This is my new personal fano- Wait. Wait. This interferes with my Rainbow Pie OTP.

You'll never escape us now...

One of us... One of us... One of us!


What The Great And Powerful Trixie said, actually. They make TV Tuner devices (http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=47&Tpk=TV%20Tuner) for computers, so you basically install one of those things (some of them are USB based, so that's not as techy as it sounds), hook up the right cords, and your computer has a TV window now.

Just don't chince out and get the cheap one for nine dollars. In the world of tech, you really do get what you pay for.


General Derpy Hooves, of the Equestrian Royal guard?

These are relevant:

Aww yeah.

General Derpy is best Derpy.


Yes, I totally thought that would be the winner after seeing the sunglasses.
Reminded me of Simon from TTGurran. Surprised he didn't increase his sunglasses size to impress Rainbow.

I just had a thought:
If a pony's special talent was,say, brain surgery or rocket science, how would they obtain it? Would they be a blank flank until they were old enough to obtain the education necessary?

Dude. Look at the CMC. Now tell me you don't think they could feasibly get rocket science cutie marks before they get education.

Hi friends! Long time no see, eh? Anyway, I come with a request!

I am thinking about starting up either a podcast or video series about pony history and other such things. It would be like old G1 stuff and how they tie into FiM with episode reviews, character studies, fanfic reviews and other stuff.

I am looking for a bit more inspiration so:

Please PM me with what you would like to see/hear on a podcast or video series like this. It will span from G1 to FiM so anything is game.

Thanks everypony! It's great to see this is still going! (Holy cripes, 32 threads?!) You guys are awesome. :3 Thanks!

WJMILL! *Pouncetackleglompsnuggle* Stay with uuuuuuusssss!

Wow... those are some wimpy children.... by 4 i had already seen Jurassic park. and by like 10 i was watching Starship Troopers.

I kinda watched them in reverse order... >.> For some reason my mom thought it was a good idea to show Starship Troopers to a five year old. I had to take a break halfway through to eat a sandwich, and she made me look away for the brainsucking, but other than that I found it rather entertaining. Of course, I watched Jurassic Park probably less than a year later, and thought raptors were the best dinosaurs ever for a couple of years (fun fact: the 'velociraptors' in the movie are actually deinonychus (apologies for misspelling), a smaller version. Way to go Hollywood).

So yeah, IMO if your kid is that wimpy at that age you're either raising Fluttershy or sheltering them too much.

I suppose this means Jayden is off the hook
And does not need be drawn in harem pants Which is awesome because she'd kill me for it probably.

Aw, I'm sure we'd all be interested in what your mental conception of Jayden is like, no matter her costume.


I was being purposefully vague, but yes. In addition, I went from "Phoe heavily identifies with Dash? Huh." to "OH MY GOODNESS PHOE IS IN A CARTOON! AND SHE HAS RAINB- oh that's Dash."

I now want "dramatic pause..." to become Phoe's catchphrase.

Then why did I add Arcanthus to Firefox's dictionary?

Probably the same reason I added "Fishmongler".

Because you are a horrible pony, yes.


Anyone who enters a state of repressive denial upon hearing the suggestion of harem ponies has fracture lines big enough for me to fly an Arwing through.

Wow. I'm glad I'm not that guy. No repressive denial of... something... over here, nope! I am PERFECTLY SANE

So yeah, IMO if your kid is that wimpy at that age you're either raising Fluttershy or sheltering them too much.

On the flipside, if you have a particularly active imagination, you don't want to be exposed to too much nightmare fuel at too young an age - there was a period where my paranoia and imagination worked rather too well together - I had nightmares about the Muppets, Judge Doom from Rogar Rabbit and the Mysterious Cities of Gold, fer cryin' out loud (and all of which programmes I liked). As a young child (especially during infant school, so mostly four to eight or so), I didn't want to see anything scary, since I wanted to be able to sleep at night - and my imagination was quite capable of conjuring up enough horrors without any outside help, thank you!

(One particular one that I remember involved a place that sealed you in a room and some sort of puppet thing popped out, not unlike hand-puppets or something, and started emitting a continuous scream that went on until it killed you. Or the nightmare of a highly contagious disease that basically made a big neat whole in everyone's cheeks - which was something my mind came up with entirely on it's own.

My imgination is a wonderful thing, but in the past it was a bit of a double-edged sword...!)

That said, Watership Down didn't bother me at all (in fact, I wasn't that interested in it, even with all the blood!)

Yes, rabbits tearing each other to pieces was fine, but the Muppets (who I adored) were the ones who gave me my first nightmare...

(To be fair, it was a dream of bad things happening to (non-show, dream-created) Muppets that the Muppets doing bad things to me.)



It's one of the reasons I subconciously learned to lucid dream, as a defense mechanism. I rarely have the problem now (unless a dream grounds itself too solidly in the "real" world and so thus doesn't present a "threat" as such.)

Greetings ponythread! Was away for the weekend but am now back and caught up. Favourite part of the new episode?


Dun dun DUUUN!

I lol'd at that. Dash is a better drama pony than Rarity when it makes things more awesome. Saw Tank winning from a mile away, though it was still fun to see Baron Awesome actually win. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to believe that the people making this don't have some contact with the fandom and slip things like that in. :smalltongue:

The song sequence was pretty good too. Not the best song the show's put out, but still fun to listen to. That and the expressions were great. :smalltongue:

I'm actually not so bothered about a boxed set, so long as they release all the episodes (I'd say in order, but then again FiM didn't show in chronological order, so it's less urgent than some). I don't mind buying shows in sets of four to five episodes, so long as I can get them all in the end (I did it with Pokemon, W.I.T.C.H (for the only season the *&8£%^$ released), I'd have done it with Winx Club except they release like three volumes over here and then stopped and then I couldn't be arsed to get the US versions). Boxed sets are convienant, but I'm prepared to accept smaller set at the end of the day.

One question I've never see sensibly answered is why it is so extremely rare to see more than four-five episodes per disk of a 22 minute cartoon - when "adult" TV shows comfortably and consistently fit four (possibly even five) 44 minute episodes (often including extras and commentaries for all four, see Stargate SG-1) per disk. One would have thought, if one is doing a season boxed set, one would want to keep the production costs down, and use ase few DVDs as possible, yet I've seen only a handful of places do this (and only then on splitting stuff like Naruto's 13 episode half-seasons over two instead of three disks.)


Edit:


On the other hand, that is a very good point, and this guy's a bit of a pillock.

What baffles me is the logic that people will buy crap so as to get a proper release later, when this doesn't happen - really, you're putting casual buyers ahead of more serious one...?), and why the industry is of the opinion that children are that stupid, because they really aren't.

Of course, the DVD/movie/TV industry IS just out to stuff us for as much money as possible (see: travesty of regioning, which was artifically induced specifically and soley for screw us all collectively out of as much money as possible).

The GOOD news is, then Shout only get to hold the license for the US, and therefore other countries who may have different distributers may not be complete prats. (Austraila, as I've said before, is rather good in this regard.) (And this is why you should always get a DVD player that can be converted to multiregion (i.e. the cheap ones from ASDA and Tescos...))

I think that summed things up rather nicely. Maybe we're barking up the wrong tree here and should be petitioning Hasbro directly? If the single set DVDs sell poorly and Hasbro gets info that there are a bunch of buyers for a full season(in some manner they actually believe, so not an internet petition), maybe they'll license out the full box explicitly.

Also, if that shout factory guy is just part of one sub-department and has no clue what he's talking about, all he's really accomplishing is depressing people with what is likely a true fact, which is disheartening but not really meaningful.

I buy this 100% and I remember having all sorts of weird dreams of bad things happening to cartoon characters I had seen, even the heroic ones (used to dream of beast wars characters getting crushed or mangled in various ways, which they showed all the time in the actual show, even though they always got better).

What's weird though, regarding the person who posted about the actual episode 7 stuff is
The kids were fine with the eels eating the pets! The parent's complaint was with the ending where all the pets except Tank got rejected, not with the valley of creatures constantly getting hurt. What the hay?

Uh...out of 22 characters in the show, I remember only eight of them surviving to the finale. And not all of those made it through Beast Machines.

Quote post aboilin' away, in the works. Let's see if I can get that done tonight.
We should have Gadora posin his ponemotes, and Blastech with the RP post soon.

A good rhythm to fall into, the addition of worthwhile info. *nod*

Good heavens, I have other threads to check! Nerts. Til later, ponythread!
Actually, for the ponymote post, I wouldn't mind it becoming a communally run post, just switching it to a new owner each thread. Both times I put it on the first page, I actually made a point of avoiding putting a quote box around the thing so that other people would be able to access it, since otherwise I'd have to go into it via edits, as oppose to quoting it. *shrug* I can't guarantee that I'll always be available to keep it up to date. (For example, right now I'm not really able to stay current with ponythread, and would likely miss any emotes that someone submits.)

Hi friends! Long time no see, eh? Anyway, I come with a request!

I am thinking about starting up either a podcast or video series about pony history and other such things. It would be like old G1 stuff and how they tie into FiM with episode reviews, character studies, fanfic reviews and other stuff.

I am looking for a bit more inspiration so:

Please PM me with what you would like to see/hear on a podcast or video series like this. It will span from G1 to FiM so anything is game.

Thanks everypony! It's great to see this is still going! (Holy cripes, 32 threads?!) You guys are awesome. :3 Thanks!

Just so you know, I literally exclaimed "Yay!" when I saw that you'd made a post.



Hi everypony, I'm back.

Talk about nightmares...


...HEY, I RESEMBLE THAT COMMENT! >C

I really didn't come into my own until college. Jurassic Park terrified me to the point of night terrors at age fourteen. I was quite the wimpy kid.

*pats Jade on the back*

'sokay it took me a while to balance out my horror response too. I remember having to leave the theater during the Lion King when Simba's dad died...

Then later in life I had a love-terror thing going with zombies; I used to love horror stories about them, but then I wouldn't be able to sleep at nights. I think I eventually hardened myself to them by repeated exposure. And shotguns under the bed...


Maybe, but the rockets would never launch because they would be on fire and covered in tree sap. Or if Sweetie designed it, liquefied. :smalltongue:

Clearly it would be a liquid-fuel rocket!


Hi everypony, I'm back.


Good to see you, Dexam! Welcome back!


What's weird though, regarding the person who posted about the actual episode 7 stuff is
The kids were fine with the eels eating the pets! The parent's complaint was with the ending where all the pets except Tank got rejected, not with the valley of creatures constantly getting hurt. What the hay?

Maybe they've really taken the morals in the show to heart?

Also, good to see you around, WJMill! How's life going?

Rainbow Dash: I need an aduuuult

OracleofWuffing
2011-11-21, 01:01 PM
Oh, hey! Brian Ward at Shout Factory's handling communications with regards to DVD releases? It might not look like it, but you've got one of the friendliest "ins" in the business there. He was a very talkative guy when handling communications between the various Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon DVD releases, as well as the Captain N cartoons. If something from him sounds depressing, that's probably because it depresses him just as much.

I'm not entirely certain on things, but checking out the iTunes store, it looks like the only thing there indicating who has what is just Hasbro there. So, it looks like- and I admit I'm the last person to know these things- Hasbro's managing the online distribution rights themselves, and letting Shout! handle the DVDs separately.

Thing is, just because they have the North American DVD distribution rights, that doesn't necessarily mean that they can just go ahead and publish whatever show they want however they want. Sometimes, the way the original company draws up contracts, they'll chuck in a "You guys must publish this other show as well" rider, and they can also specify how they want the release to be. It looks like, this time around, Hasbro and Vivendi both don't wish for broadcast/production releases. If Shout! goes ahead and publishes that sort of thing anyways, they end up breaking the contract, even if Hasbro gets twenty billion dollars of profit out of the deal. Legal action ensues.

Thing is, companies like Hasbro put much more weight into money than they do fan letters. If they see the sales of the individual DVD episodes drop, what that tells them is that people aren't buying ponies. Yes, this is a cruddy situation, because buying more individual DVD episodes just tells them that the fans want more individual episode releases. Remember how we basically had this same situation with regards to show-accurate pony figurines?

in the latest episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
(season 2 episode 7 if you wanna Youtube it) Rainbow Dash is holding a contest to find a pet...
she sets up the final event in true :elan: fashion by turning away and saying "pause for dramatic effect", followed by looking straight through the 4th wall at us, "A race through Ghastly Gorge. Dunh Dunh DUNH!!"

And then during the race she whistles along with the theme music thats playing(Ride of the Valkyries of course)

Quite.



I'll admit, this surprises me. I just like to talk, because it spurs Thanqol and other clever ponies to correct me (except for that one time; "nope! No idea what I did, but isn't it a masterpiece?" -_-* ), so actually helping somepony is a nice change XD
Indeed, quite.

You know what though Siuis? All that talk is super helpful. I'm in a similar boat as Thanqol, though I've taken a different journey to get there. I have the ability to draw, but I have very little head knowledge or knowledge of techniques, so anytime anyone has input or pointers, they are new to me, and welcome :) Especially when, for example, you know a LOT about form and shape and love to talk about it, see I just know cartoonly feeling blobs. That's fine for cartoony blobs and silly pictures, but when I want to draw realism, I'm out of luck. What you see in my drawthread is the height of my ability, nearly every day. I can raise that height on my own (and if fact, only I can truly raise it) but when people like you give me advice, that helps accelerate and ease the process tremendously.

So thanks! http://i.imgur.com/jaolo.png

On the flipside, if you have a particularly active imagination, you don't want to be exposed to too much nightmare fuel at too young an age - there was a period where my paranoia and imagination worked rather too well together - I had nightmares about the Muppets, Judge Doom from Rogar Rabbit and the Mysterious Cities of Gold, fer cryin' out loud (and all of which programmes I liked). As a young child (especially during infant school, so mostly four to eight or so), I didn't want to see anything scary, since I wanted to be able to sleep at night - and my imagination was quite capable of conjuring up enough horrors without any outside help, thank you!

(One particular one that I remember involved a place that sealed you in a room and some sort of puppet thing popped out, not unlike hand-puppets or something, and started emitting a continuous scream that went on until it killed you. Or the nightmare of a highly contagious disease that basically made a big neat whole in everyone's cheeks - which was something my mind came up with entirely on it's own.

My imgination is a wonderful thing, but in the past it was a bit of a double-edged sword...!)

That said, Watership Down didn't bother me at all (in fact, I wasn't that interested in it, even with all the blood!)

Yes, rabbits tearing each other to pieces was fine, but the Muppets (who I adored) were the ones who gave me my first nightmare...

(To be fair, it was a dream of bad things happening to (non-show, dream-created) Muppets that the Muppets doing bad things to me.)



It's one of the reasons I subconciously learned to lucid dream, as a defense mechanism. I rarely have the problem now (unless a dream grounds itself too solidly in the "real" world and so thus doesn't present a "threat" as such.)

Huh. Honestly, the only things which give me nightmares are spiders, and I've found through charting that spider dreams popping up has no actual correlation to spider thoughts/spider experiences. Just the occasional night when I wake up at 2 in the morning and jump three feet out of the bed from prone screaming [expletive] [expletive] [expletive] GET IT OFF. Ought to be interesting considering my gf is an arachnophobe too...

As for lucid dreaming, I do that at times, but I've found my dreams are generally more interesting if I let them play out the way they want to rather than the way I want them to. The main time it comes into play is to give me a non-screaming "out" button in case of a spider dream.

Oh, and to Inkwell and all the other spider-lovers, I don't actually hate the pics. Insofar as I'm capable of finding an arachnid "cute", Inkwell's spiders fall into the cute category. Of course, if one were to show up at my home, it would still meet a fiery end, but it's really nothing personal.

Mare in the Mirror chapter 9 (http://adcoon.deviantart.com/art/Mare-in-the-Mirror-9-270170566) is now out, for those who follow it.

And also, the prelude to my new fanfic, Roots of a Heart (http://adcoon.deviantart.com/art/Roots-of-a-Heart-Prelude-270209021) is finally out! I'm not sure it's quite as good as I'd like, so I'd love some feedback on it.

And! I'm running a winter constest on dA (http://adcoon.deviantart.com/journal/Avast-Ye-A-Winter-Contest-270213038) related to said prelude! Want to win a premium membership on dA? Go take a look! Don't want a premium membership? Go look anyway, because I'm sure the contest will be AWESOME!

On the flipside, if you have a particularly active imagination, you don't want to be exposed to too much nightmare fuel at too young an age - there was a period where my paranoia and imagination worked rather too well together - I had nightmares about the Muppets, Judge Doom from Rogar Rabbit and the Mysterious Cities of Gold, fer cryin' out loud (and all of which programmes I liked). As a young child (especially during infant school, so mostly four to eight or so), I didn't want to see anything scary, since I wanted to be able to sleep at night - and my imagination was quite capable of conjuring up enough horrors without any outside help, thank you!

(One particular one that I remember involved a place that sealed you in a room and some sort of puppet thing popped out, not unlike hand-puppets or something, and started emitting a continuous scream that went on until it killed you. Or the nightmare of a highly contagious disease that basically made a big neat whole in everyone's cheeks - which was something my mind came up with entirely on it's own.

My imgination is a wonderful thing, but in the past it was a bit of a double-edged sword...!)

That said, Watership Down didn't bother me at all (in fact, I wasn't that interested in it, even with all the blood!)

Yes, rabbits tearing each other to pieces was fine, but the Muppets (who I adored) were the ones who gave me my first nightmare...

(To be fair, it was a dream of bad things happening to (non-show, dream-created) Muppets that the Muppets doing bad things to me.)



It's one of the reasons I subconciously learned to lucid dream, as a defense mechanism. I rarely have the problem now (unless a dream grounds itself too solidly in the "real" world and so thus doesn't present a "threat" as such.)

I had the same problem, coupled with a good memory and tendency to get stuck on a particular thought topic. I managed to get freaked out by a Peter Pan computer game for years on end. Though in my defense, the music around the crocodile scenes was SUPER intense.

Having finally watched the latest episode, one thing bugged me:

Why didn't Rainbow Dash challenge the pets with a strength contest? That would have been right up her street and the tortoise would have probably won that.

Also:

Myself, was mostly thinking of the part talking about the turtle tortoise winning something, but the fact that there's a contest at all might count as spoiler for those who haven't seen the ep :3

One more quick thought on ep 7.

The writers actually missed the boat a bit during the race. There looks to be a river or stream running down the center of the gorge, and even though Tank is a tortoise not a turtle, they still could have done a funny shot of him deliberately flipping over into the water and floating down the stream upside down, then levering himself out and upright with a branch or something. it would have explained how he got to where dash was in less than a month and shown off his brains even more.

Actually, I think that Dash and Elan are quite different. When Dash did her stop for dramatic pause and dun dun dun effects, she was performing for others present. Of course, using techniques that point out the flow or tone of a story are also for the benefit of the audience, but I'm fairly certain that Dash was performing for her friends because she wanted to be funny and add a bit more drama to her search for a pet.

Elan, on the other hand, is essentially constrained by bardic tradition to point out tropes and dramatic effects whenever they come up. We actually see him dun dun dun at points in the story when he has no personal knowledge of events because he's somehow compelled to express the tension. Elan breaks the 4th wall (or at least raps on it repeatedly) whereas Dash really was performing completely in character, just in a way that happened to be funny for the audience.

Hey ponythread, could I get your help with something? As those of you in the IRC should probably know by now, I've been watching Desert Bus for Hope (http://desertbus.org/) these past few days, and I'd like to send them an MLP related challenge; specifically getting them to sing my little Gurren Lagann filk from thread one. Me being me, I'm not sure how singable it is. Could people let me know if they think it's singable and, if not, help me improve it to the point where it's at least decent.

My Little Lagann, My Little Lagann
Ah... My Little Lagann
I used to wonder what manliness could be
(My Little Lagann)
Until you all shared spiral power with me.

Big sunglasses
Tons of drills
A Courageous Bro
Faithful and strong
Combining Gunmen
It's an easy feat

And spirals make it all complete
On My Little Lagann
'Til you know you're all my very best bros

Man, I love Desert Bus of Hope. Somehow my productivity always reaches 0 when it comes on though...

Anyways, song, lyrics seem good, though they don't flow perfectly in some areas:



I used to wonder what manliness could be
- manliness just doesn't seem to flow well for me.



Until you all shared spiral power with me

-Seems a bit bulky. Maybe "Until you shared all the spirals with me"?



A Courageous Bro
Faithful and strong

Was going to say something here, but forget what...had something to do with spirals...spiraling fine? Eh, I forget...think it might have been "Spiraling Strong".

New thought though, completely unrelated to the original thought I had on it:
"A courageous bro
manly combine"

Though, you would need to change up the next line.

Don't know why, but "you are my very best bros" doesn't work for me personally. Don't really have any suggestions for that one though.

I've been trying to compose a similar set of lyrics, but as I'm no poet it didn't work. I do think that "My little Ganmen" might be more fitting though.. and perhaps that making a set of pony-themed lyrics for Soreiro Days might be easier than fitting all the Gurren Lagann themes into the short verses of the Friendship is Magic theme song.

So I had my first pony related dream, or more accurately my first fandom related dream. I was at some sort of community art center housed in the second or third floor of a renovated warehouse. The kind of building that has old exterior walls but is broken up into modern office style rooms inside. Don't recall why I was there, but Daniel Ingram was there as well. I had something (possibly a cd case?) with his picture on it that I was thinking of having him sign, and was waiting for him to finish talking to someone. As I waited I was looking at the picture of him and realized that there was a window behind him in the image and that the view out said window was almost exactly the same as the view out the window I was sitting near, just a few degrees off horizontally, meaning that his studio was in this same building. I could see Daniel from where I was sitting and he could see me, and when I held the picture up to compare the view he started to sweat (big cartoon sweat beads too) and came over to plead with me to not tell anyone where his studio was, else he'd have to move because of all the bronies.

Strange dream, and not the one I'd expect to have concerning pony.:smallconfused:

Lets examine your dream in detail!
Obviously, from the beginning, it's apparent that you're a fan of Daniel Ingram. The window most likely represents a barrier between you and him; perhaps it shows that you believe him to belong to a different world then you? This is reinforced by his apparent panic at the thought of his fans finding him.

In conclusion I'm an idiot who should be kept away from keyboards.

In conclusion, you're gay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4htosoLsJI).



Fixed that for you. :smallwink:

I love Derpy so much.

This animation (http://parallaxmlp.deviantart.com/art/Derpy-Loves-her-Lava-Lamp-270265125) features Derpy.

Thus, I love this animation (http://parallaxmlp.deviantart.com/art/Derpy-Loves-her-Lava-Lamp-270265125) so much.
Soooo cuuuuuuuuute

This one is too perfect! I love Flutterdash, and now it's canon!

FFA FF RP: FREE Raspberries!

Flashpoint's eyes widen, and he begins giggling hysterically. He then turns over and falls off of the stand.

"Wow," He says, pulling himself up. "Never expected that from a little filly like you. Almost as good as back home!"

He re-adjusts his tie, and then produces a guitar from... where exactly you aren't sure. "Now, I know the sign says 'free', but I feel the need to repay you somehow. Any requests?"

Beeskee grins at the other pony's repsonse to the belly raspberries. She takes pride in her work. :smallbiggrin:

"Well, I never say no to a free song. I'm open to hearing whatever you would care to play."



Candles peeks in. "Beeskee, what are you- oh, oh my... Hi, uh, guys..."

"Hi Candles! Come join us! Free raspberries!"

Beeskee dances with ponies! ^.^ (I played this almost continually for most of the day yesterday, and danced with ponies in IRC.)


Derpy's Lava Lamp (http://parallaxmlp.deviantart.com/art/Derpy-Loves-her-Lava-Lamp-270265125) is very enjoyable. :smallsmile: I watched it for a couple hours, heh.

I am sad we cannot see her cutie mark.
That's because I don't have the first clue as to what it would be. If anyone has any suggestions, I may be doing more Firefly ponies.


That's so awesome!

I wonder what everyone else there were thinking

I did get some funny looks from pedestrians, and then some weird skinny kid came up to me and started talking to me, claiming his name was Dirtbag? I dunno.
For srsly, Dirtbag is a pretty cool pony IRL.


Guys, I found the perfect video for whenever no pony expects the Spanish Pony Inquisition (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MY_BKuCzrU)!!!
I will be studying this and other Trixie videos diligently in preparation for my role in the play I'm directing.
Not joking. The cast wrote the story the day I wasn't there, and casted me as the lead role. I play a stage magician. This will be such fun!


Just wanted to point out to the thread that our very own Bakuel from the pony drawthread got work featured on EqD's latest drawfriend! I think you'll all agree it's well-deserved!

That picture is so badass it inspires me to go kick a bull.
Vorpalbob does not recommend kicking a bull.



EDIT: Also, I keep forgetting! Congrats Vorpalbob on an awesome video!

I'd do another, and sing some of the other songs, but as I believe I mentioned it's bucking cold outside.


So, um, this car. I want to own it. Very much.

http://i.imgur.com/LWSLQh.jpg

Someday, hopefully soon, I will have a motorcycle.

I will pay someone to paint Rainbow on the side.

Then I will ride across bridges on it singing songs.

You will not be able to hear me because of the engine.

Perhaps the singing isn't such a great idea.


So I had my first pony related dream, or more accurately my first fandom related dream. I was at some sort of community art center housed in the second or third floor of a renovated warehouse. The kind of building that has old exterior walls but is broken up into modern office style rooms inside. Don't recall why I was there, but Daniel Ingram was there as well. I had something (possibly a cd case?) with his picture on it that I was thinking of having him sign, and was waiting for him to finish talking to someone. As I waited I was looking at the picture of him and realized that there was a window behind him in the image and that the view out said window was almost exactly the same as the view out the window I was sitting near, just a few degrees off horizontally, meaning that his studio was in this same building. I could see Daniel from where I was sitting and he could see me, and when I held the picture up to compare the view he started to sweat (big cartoon sweat beads too) and came over to plead with me to not tell anyone where his studio was, else he'd have to move because of all the bronies.

Strange dream, and not the one I'd expect to have concerning pony.:smallconfused:

Kalinda, my first pony dream included a book on dating and relationships written by our own Jade & Midnight. Having expectations is a silly.

Seriously though, this dream is incredibly amusing. The idea of Daniel being terrified by hoards of hypothetical bronies is quite humorous. It also has me thinking you may have a follow-up dream wherin he moves his studio to a secret underground base filled with ponies. And then tries to take over the world.

Maybe I should write that story.

Fixed that for you. :smallwink:

Stephen Fry is best dream interpreter.

Well, there's three ways you could go with it. Wait, four.

First, blank flank. River is young and pretty unformed.
Second, a cutie mark forced on her by the process. This would be interesting in a fic, because it could be a military symbol which would get her recognised /instantly/.
Third, a cutie mark not caused by the process, but based on it. Something representing psychicness?
Fourth, a cutie mark based on what we do know of her. Dancing would seem logical, or something mathy.

...I don't remember why I quoted this! Uh, how about, you're a cool dude, Dirtbag is a cool dude, and don't invest in unicycles.

Is anyone planning on writing a fic where all the characters in MLP turn out to be actors, and it shows them as being completely different out of character? Like, Discord is a grandpa, Celestia is a drama queen, Twilight is into vogue, that kind of weird stuff. Or something.
