Trixie's Great and Powerful Guide v1.99e
Lazy 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.

Deadly's Ironically Presented Anti-Spoiler Measures

DO YOU HATE SPOILER TAGS?

Well, Deadly's here to help you get rid of them... with a vengeance! Create a new bookmark in your browser and copy the code below as the link/url of said bookmark. Name it something helpful, like "Spoilers B GONE!" or whatever. Then whenever you view a thread here on GitP you just hit the bookmark and BAM! no more spoilers.

You won't even see the boxes, just the bare innards in all their gory glory.

It also makes sure that no image is wider than 600px, to avoid stretching pages, and will attempt to "intelligently" remove repeated images except avatars. Neat, huh? Sadly that last part means stuff like pony emotes may get lost but the forum doesn't make it easy for me to single out images in quotes as I'd have liked... that's an open problem, I guess.

Tested in Firefox, Chrome and Opera. Should work in any modern browser, but you never know with these things.


javascript:(function() { var a = document.getElementsByTagName('div'); for (var i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i++) { if (a[i].className == 'spoiler') { a[i].style.display = 'block'; a[i].className = ''; } else if (a[i].className == 'pre-spoiler') { a[i].style.display = 'none'; }} var ims = new Array(); var tmp; a = document.getElementsByTagName('img'); for (i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i++) { tmp = a[i].parentNode.className ; if (ims.indexOf(a[i].getAttribute('src')) == -1) { ims.push(a[i].getAttribute('src')); a[i].style.maxWidth = '600px'; } else if (tmp != 'avataroverflow' && tmp != 'alt2') { a[i].style.display = 'none' ; }}})();

If you don't mind repeated images, here's a version that leaves them be.

javascript:(function() { var a = document.getElementsByTagName('div'); for (var i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i++) { if (a[i].className == 'spoiler') { a[i].style.display = 'block'; a[i].className = ''; } else if (a[i].className == 'pre-spoiler') { a[i].style.display = 'none'; }} a = document.getElementsByTagName('img'); for (i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i++) { a[i].style.maxWidth = '600px'; }})();

In keeping with the thread title: Assume that AJ has decided to avenge the assumed death of her parents by dressing in a bat costume and fighting evil.


How does the rest of the cast play out?
And more importantly, how badly does this get derailed into an extended RariJack ship due to the assumption of who Catfilly will be?

My headcannon is that we are getting a translation from Equestrian to English transcript. Because otherwise why would ponies use feet as a measuring system?
Perhaps ponies were once servants of a species with feet?

And more importantly, how badly does this get derailed into an extended RariJack ship due to the assumption of who Catfilly will be?

Pinkie = Joker.

Because it's dramatically appropriate.

Twilight = Iron Man, Trixie = Dr Strange, Scoot = Spider-Man, RD = Flash.

Discord is basically Joker during his I have god powers kick (actually his reversing this and relinquishing his powers to reign chaos could be a fantastic story), I'm horribly torn between Twilight and Pinky as Fox. Actually I have high hopes that derailing will be minimal because shipping can be maximized by referencing as many characters and plot elements as possible.

Also everypony (except Lyra) knows that these so called 'humans' were just early scientists mixing minotaur bones with gorrila bones.
I always liked the humans are aliens theory better.

I just realised that we could've named this thread Ponythread XLIX: X-tra LIXie.

Gah. Hindsight. It only comes right after you needed it.

In other pony news, this site helps if you ever need something to wash away a bad day, or just feel like playing Russian Roulette with your pancreas. http://www.ponymindbleach.com/

Also, I am seriously considering setting up a PbP pony game. Probably going to use the simple Roleplaying is Magic S2E (http://www.mlprim.com/s2e/) framework rather than the Pony Tales framework, although I will draw on the latter for inspiration.

Only ideas at this point are for an Equestrian campaign, of a tone slightly more "real" than the shows, but not grimdark. Think of the fics Dangerous Days or One Last Quest for an idea of what I'm talking about. Probably start with just 3-4 players. Given the need to set everything up, and determine what kind of story we could have, I don't think this would be starting soon. (not to mention I'm going on a trip in mid September)

Would anyone be interested in such a venture? Qualifications include that I am not an experienced GM, and the RiM mechanics are not as polished as say, nWoD or Mage. So there are likely to be a few teething issues. But I'm confident that, with the right people on board, we could overcome that.

Balmas, Siuis, you seemed to indicate an interest earlier, so if you want you have priority on the player spaces.

Too obvious. Pinkie is best genderbend.
AJ and RD are the obviously unfeminine characters, due to being hardworking and sporty respectively. Rarity and Fluttershy are the two obviously feminine, and so get irony points-which is also overdone.
Twilight and Pinkie, as the studious one and the cloud cuckoolander, change practically none at all due to gender. Twilight, however is the main character in a show for girls.

Keep in mind that an attribute of 4 implies natural talent equal or better than everyone except for professional athletes, top professors, and famous con-men, to name a few. 4 is a lot of potential. That said, Arcadian body is totally awesome and you should take it and be awesome.

I'd personally suggest Hope/Gluttony, although I think you could make a case for Temperance/Gluttony to represent her usual careful planning and temptation to indulge in excess.

Edit:

Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000.

Numbers on the contestants in the Young Fliers competition.

Ponies conclusively use Base-10.

Point of order: Ponies use a base that is at least ten. It's possible they could be in, say, base 16 and we just haven't been shown the extra symbols.

Relatedly: Why do ponies avoid mentioning the names of months? It's most obvious in "Ticket Master" - "On the twenty-first day of... yadda yadda..." - but thus far they've never said any month names. Which is weird, considering how often they use the days of the week.

Maybe they want to reserve the possibility of pony-naming the months to match up with alternative holiday names like Nightmare Night and Hearthswarming Eve? Also, they don't really do days of the week much per se, just Tuesday. Twilight Sparkle really likes saying Tuesday.

Ooh gluttony. That's a keeper.

I think I'll let that sink in. The downside to starting with a supernatural is that five being the human maximum means that it's okay to exceed it. But mechanically it's fine. It feels weird having 'only' eight dice when five is an attainable max.

...

Memory surfacing. Thanqol suggesting. Two skills at four dots, one your supers killed profession, one a passionate hobby. Doesn't apply to attributes as such, but a goo starting point.

There's still just the two seasons, right? Is season one that much more different from the second season? Legitimate question, since TMNT 2003 didn't really change during any of the seasons, while, say, Pokemon, basically became different shows each season.

No, not so different. Just old. Well, older but no old. I was specifying so people wouldn't say "I watched it just a month ago- the royal wedding in fact" because it was specifically a researching to reconnect I was asking about

I'm going to say no, for Manipulation anyways. I can't speak to all the rolls that might be relevant, but someone with Manip and no Prescence is... a used car dealer that rips people off. Or the like. And you stated you wanted to build up to being a Queen. And Queens need a presence sooner or later.

And Composure gives you Willpower.

So unless you have a known specific inarguable use like a Contract that you plan to spam the heck out I'd find another use for those Merit dots and go for better rounded Socials.

Season 1 and Season 2 are pretty similar in some ways. Mix of episode types, various character focus and world-building, random epic moments. Season 1 was, I think, a bit more vague and thus a bit more consistent (hard to contradict yourself when a lot of the world is "fill in the blank"). I also think season 1 had a certain charm to it that comes from consistent world-building and that got a bit lost with season 2 being more over-the-top. On the other hand, season 2 had a lot of polish compared to the first season (way fewer animation errors). Season 2 also had great storytelling and took several characters to interesting places (e.g. Pinkie's Smile Song, Rarity's relationship with Sweetie Belle, Fluttershy and Rainbow's almost canon relationship).

If I had to put it into a blurb, Season 1 built a world with interesting characters. Season 2 took those characters on interesting adventures.

To elaborate; There is no explicit shipping between any of the characters ... there is, however, plenty of potential fodder that can be interpreted as such by those who wish to do so.

(e.g. Rainbow once complained about being dragged along to watch butterfly migrations by Fluttershy. Strong friendship or something more? You decide!)

I might miss a few, I trust other ponies to fill in the gaps.

1. Bop on the nose and general arm-in-arm movement during the "Best Pet" duet.
2. Rainbow grabs Fluttershy to help in Secret of My Excess (admittedly weak since they had to hold the sheet, but Fluttershy is usually a slowdown for Rainbow).
3. Acting together in Hearthswarming Eve
4. Getting Fluttershy out of bed in Super Squeezy Cider 6000, including Fluttershy being embarrased and Rainbow putting her first in line even though that meant missing out on cider.
5. Butterfly migration and dragon migration scene in Dragon Quest (why did Rainbow go to the Butterfly migration? Answer: to be with Fluttershy.)
6. Pretty much all of Hurricane Fluttershy
7. Rainbow picking up Fluttershy during the wedding fight scene looks like they kiss and the sliding on the floor sound is practically the same as a kissing sound. Example of unintentional, but romantic. Plus, even if they don't kiss, they get pretty close to each other.

7. Rainbow picking up Fluttershy during the wedding fight scene looks like they kiss and the sliding on the floor sound is practically the same as a kissing sound. Example of unintentional, but romantic. Plus, even if they don't kiss, they get pretty close to each other.

They said it wasn't intentional, and their lack of elaboration there I think amounts to them following that by saying "wink".

Hehe. I've had thread 59 dibsed for a while now.

Ok. Good thing!



Too obvious. Pinkie is best genderbend.
Bubble Berry is best colt.




So a question for pony thread. When I ate last time you guys sat down and just indulged in an old season one episode? Maybe binged the series again? I find it's always eye opening to see what there was that pulled me in that first time.

We are rewatching both seasons right now in glorious 40" tv and 5.1 dolby. While she sews Pinkies. We are at CutiePox episode


Season 1 and Season 2 are pretty similar in some ways. Mix of episode types, various character focus and world-building, random epic moments. Season 1 was, I think, a bit more vague and thus a bit more consistent (hard to contradict yourself when a lot of the world is "fill in the blank"). I also think season 1 had a certain charm to it that comes from consistent world-building and that got a bit lost with season 2 being more over-the-top. On the other hand, season 2 had a lot of polish compared to the first season (way fewer animation errors). Season 2 also had great storytelling and took several characters to interesting places (e.g. Pinkie's Smile Song, Rarity's relationship with Sweetie Belle, Fluttershy and Rainbow's almost canon relationship).

If I had to put it into a blurb, Season 1 built a world with interesting characters. Season 2 took those characters on interesting adventures.

For me it's the oposite, the first season is way to... generic in some episodes, a little too childlish.
Second season has all this great stories and adventures. Time travel, Real obsession, and Chocolate Rain Guys! Chocolate Rain!

This is also an acceptable fluttership, as it keeps Mac free for the only pony that could understand him.

Yeah. I'm cool with people liking whoever they like; I just feel uncomfortable when people touch me like that. And it's been mainly people like that who get all "personal space invadey".

I'm normally the personal space invader. I don't like my medicine!

I'm honestly not sure what to say about this ship... I hadn't even considered the idea of shipping in this show... even if its audience is much bigger than little girls, it wouldn't be a stretch to say that's probably somewhere near the target audience... at least quite a bit of the merchandice operates that way... Made that earlier gift shoping rather uncomfortable.

As for the kiss, sorry Forum. But looking closely at the scene does reveal a gap between their faces as Rainbow picks Flutters up.

Really? I'll have to look again. But what about the kissing sound? :smallconfused:


Edit: none of these are spoilers, they're just random scenes in episodes.

I might miss a few, I trust other ponies to fill in the gaps.

1. Bop on the nose and general arm-in-arm movement during the "Best Pet" duet.
2. Rainbow grabs Fluttershy to help in Secret of My Excess (admittedly weak since they had to hold the sheet, but Fluttershy is usually a slowdown for Rainbow).
3. Acting together in Hearthswarming Eve
4. Getting Fluttershy out of bed in Super Squeezy Cider 6000, including Fluttershy being embarrased and Rainbow putting her first in line even though that meant missing out on cider.
5. Butterfly migration and dragon migration scene in Dragon Quest (why did Rainbow go to the Butterfly migration? Answer: to be with Fluttershy.)
6. Pretty much all of Hurricane Fluttershy
7. Rainbow picking up Fluttershy during the wedding fight scene looks like they kiss and the sliding on the floor sound is practically the same as a kissing sound. Example of unintentional, but romantic. Plus, even if they don't kiss, they get pretty close to each other.

Oh I see. Well kinda. I'm going to take another closer look at that clip just in case. (Mostly because I am a big FlutterDash fan and I do love the idea of them sneaking it in there like I had hoped. If you remember that argument way back when I had said that they could get away with a homosexual relationship as long as it was subtle.)

OK took another look. It sounds like kissing still though I don't have the means to slow down and zoom in on a frame by frame basis to tell if they actually touch. It certainly looks like they kiss considering how they move. Well actually it looks like Rainbow Dash kisses Fluttershy on the nose.

It wasn't really a kissing sound, although its timing does seem like the vast are messing with us. It's a very ambiguous noise whose visual cue seems to be kissing, but I recall there being something else that was a candidate.

In keeping with the thread title: Assume that AJ has decided to avenge the assumed death of her parents by dressing in a bat costume and fighting evil.


How does the rest of the cast play out?
And more importantly, how badly does this get derailed into an extended RariJack ship due to the assumption of who Catfilly will be?
This reminds me that I really need to write my "Nighthunter" post-Grand Galloping Gala pulp fiction superhero pony fanfic some day. :smallannoyed:


Also, I am seriously considering setting up a PbP pony game. Probably going to use the simple Roleplaying is Magic S2E (http://www.mlprim.com/s2e/) framework rather than the Pony Tales framework, although I will draw on the latter for inspiration.

Only ideas at this point are for an Equestrian campaign, of a tone slightly more "real" than the shows, but not grimdark. Think of the fics Dangerous Days or One Last Quest for an idea of what I'm talking about. Probably start with just 3-4 players. Given the need to set everything up, and determine what kind of story we could have, I don't think this would be starting soon. (not to mention I'm going on a trip in mid September)

Would anyone be interested in such a venture? Qualifications include that I am not an experienced GM, and the RiM mechanics are not as polished as say, nWoD or Mage. So there are likely to be a few teething issues. But I'm confident that, with the right people on board, we could overcome that.

Balmas, Siuis, you seemed to indicate an interest earlier, so if you want you have priority on the player spaces.
I would love to be a part of this, but I just don't think I'll have the time to do it justice.

I'm not sure about the "pink one" and where ever it might explore, but nothing even remotely sounds crazy-ifying about the rest of you. Hell, people say I deserve a straight jacket, and I'm just fine. And most mad scientists aren't all that scientific in the first place.

I always figured that the Heart and the Soul were one in the same. I seriously tried to sit down and think of what makes one different from the other. Other than the soul not having a matching physical organ, there's really no difference between the two. But that's for a different discussion.

The heart represents emotions. Raw feeling and maybe a bit of intuition. But it's a thing of the sleeping world, a predictable, physical thing, if a beautiful one.

The soul is supernal. It's made of higher, more pure stuff. It yearns for ascension, even though it's encased in a vesel of clay and has forgotten it's true form. The soul seeks wisdom, clarity, a chance to see beyond the Lie and to the ideals of perfection.

Little known fact, Equestria is in fact on the Discworld. They don't mention months and years so that they can avoid having to explain things such as the century of the fruit fly or what Turnwise, Widdershings, Rimward, and Hubward means. :smallbiggrin:

Ah, but can't a Mage continue magic when he loses his soul? Separating emotions from it seems like splitting hairs. The mid is separate; the body too. But a mge without a soul loses luster, which leans onwards it holding emotions.

Really, it looks like a human as a whole is Supernal and any one component is less than the sum of their parts.

In these screenshots, it looks like it (especially watching their expressions in the next few frames) but strictly, only their noses overlap - RD's mouth is always a few centimetres from Fluttershy.

I just realized that we missed the chance to title this thread Megaman X-LIX and I'm a little sad about that.





Ah, but can't a Mage continue magic when he loses his soul? Separating emotions from it seems like splitting hairs. The mid is separate; the body too. But a mge without a soul loses luster, which leans onwards it holding emotions.

Really, it looks like a human as a whole is Supernal and any one component is less than the sum of their parts.

A mage with no soul can't cast any magic. A mage without control of his mind or his body can. Indeed ghosts with magic, which are nothing but impressions of the soul, prove that a body is not strictly necessary for casting magic. A mind is necessary because of the imago, the supernal image that manifests into reality. But one can be dominated, or lose one's mind and still form imagos, whereas the intact soul (or a soul-devouring lich-based facsimile) is a necessary component for magic.

Wow, suddenly the thread moved fast.

I see we're discussing FlutterDash. I still can't decide on FlutterDash vs. TwiDash / TwiDash vs Twixie.

The only things I seem to be absolutely decided about at this point are (this is all head canon, of course):

RD is not straight (it's likely that she's bi). Also neither RD nor Fluttershy have siblings so even if they're not in love they are at the very least like sisters to each other. It is possible that RD has a crush on Fluttershy but she doesn't feel the same (this is the premise of my next major story, which is in fact a TwiDash story)

Rarity x Fancy Pants OTP (and Rarity is straight)

Applejack x Zecora OTP

Scootaloo x Rumble OTP (and Scoots is straight)

Big Macintosh is gay, but I don't have any clue who he might fancy

Hey, SiuiS, been meaning to ask - if you don't mind - how's the hand healing? From the sound of the ME3 thread, you're doing a fair bit of gaming, so I'm hoping you've improved at least a bit from when I last asked (when the prognosis was a bit grim.)

Ah. Well. It's good for a normal person but wiggy for me.
I've got 80+% of usability back, but that's about as good as its going to get. You don't realize how useful han strength is until it goes away and you can't do things. I'll never be able to use a long lever again, unless there's a certain level of tissue adhesion instead of just bone goop going on. The pressure on the bottom of my hand from swinging a mallet is uncomfortable, as is stopping it.

The bone seems to have turned inward a bit, too. So the muscles between the fourth an fifth bones of my palm are squished. It's distinctly uncomfortable, like wearing a glove or something that's just a bit too small; that claustrophobic feeling you get when you're taking off a shirt or jacket, and you get stuck, and no seriously this isn't funny get it off, is kind of omnipresent. I cn usually ignore it but when it's all I can focus on its a rather cerebral torture.

I also spaz out because my hands aren't symmetrical anymore. I couldn't have told you that was a thing (actually, I probably could come to think of it), but now that it's nigh irreversible it makes me grin my teeth. And the thing is, these are details I don't expect mos people o ever pay attention to. That level of body awareness is unusual, and really, really irritating. Do it's a slew of tiny issues - first world problems as they say - that I haven't a right to complain about but thr add up to minor dissatisfaction. But I have other, more pressing psychological an somatic issues to deal with. So it gets relegated to something to complain about when I'm bored :smallsmile:

EDIT: didn't actually address the question :smallredface:
It's healing well, if lopsided. I'm mostly through the bone knitting I believe, and am on to the physical therapy portion, ie using my hand. It gets achy when the weather changes though. I thought that was a myth? Here's hoping its psychosomatic.

Here are the screenshots from the 720p iTunes version (http://imgur.com/YgpiO,c9nSc,t0rTA,TRCYj#3). There are three frames which might be a kiss. In these screenshots, it looks like it (especially watching their expressions in the next few frames) but strictly, only their noses overlap - RD's mouth is always a few centimetres from Fluttershy.

not to mention in those shots where they supposedly "kiss" RD has her mouth in a wide open teeth baring smile..which aint how you kiss

Ouch. Sorry to hear that. Not as bad as it could have been (I mean 80% is at least mostly functional, right?), but very not good at all even so.

I'd offer to slice your arm off and replace it with a Pale Master style Lich replacement except I have no idea how I would actually do that in practise. (And, perhaps not overly surprisingly, the Aotrs is not big into cybernetics.)

But hey, you know, my inbox is always open if you want to vent on anything major or minor psychological-like.

I mean, talking to ME about it probably won't, y'know, actually help (from a standpoint of lesser mortals), mind, but it's the thought or something, right?

(That goes for anyony else on ponythread of course, with the same warning. 'Cos if you think pony is bad for your state of mind...)

I'd just like to throw out that I think FlutterMac is the best Fluttershy shipping.

*hides behind 8 inch thick lead wall.*
Agreed, it just make sense.
*takes a seat right next to Maxtronaut behind the wall*

Of the gay shipping the only one that kinda make sense is TwiPie, and you have to thank my own Pinkie & Twi for confirmation on it's viability.



/Mage:The Awakening

The heart represents emotions. Raw feeling and maybe a bit of intuition. But it's a thing of the sleeping world, a predictable, physical thing, if a beautiful one.

The soul is supernal. It's made of higher, more pure stuff. It yearns for ascension, even though it's encased in a vesel of clay and has forgotten it's true form. The soul seeks wisdom, clarity, a chance to see beyond the Lie and to the ideals of perfection.

It's definitely an interesting variant; male-Chrysalis replacing male-Cadence rather than Shining Armor. It probably makes more sense too, as otherwise you need Princess Cadence maintaining the barrier instead. I do have to agree that this version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMrq4bzYfjA) does it better, though.

Those are pretty neat. I don't generally approve of trying to work traits like that into the picture (they're humans not ponies!) but those tails work pretty well actually for just the shot.

Especially compared with the silly headbands thankfully left off.

Yes, I am being intentionally obtuse. Take it in the joking manner it is intended.

This would, I suspect, be somewhat relevant if I were to consider the cards even slightly canon. Far as I'm concerned, they're a bit below the Pinkcess Celestia toy.

I approve of pretty much all humanized pony efforts, and these ones are spiffytacular!

I think the best solution for the horns is actually to have them wear tiaras, honestly. The princesses simply wear their crowns of course, and Twili's Elemental Crown replaces her normal tiara (as opposed to double stacking them.)

*looks for Maximus and Thanqol. Finds thems and glomps them both. Squees at their wonderful fan fics then trots off happy*

As for ships.

Well I really can't say as I have mixed emotions on all the ships. RD and Fluttershy seem more like sisters to me then any kind of relationship. Same with RD and AJ but more of battling cousins. Rarity is the hardest as she seems more destined to be with somepony like Fluer or who knows. Twilight and her books. Pinkie and the fourth wall seem the best.

In some of the fan fics in my mind I wish to write I am going to do some very odd pairings. I..am not going to spoil anything here as I want them to be a surprise. Still if I have to choose some pairings I say:

RD and Twlight
AJ and Rarity
Pinkie and Twilight
Fluttershy and Pinkie

For the mane 6. Beyond that it is all in the air.

If I had to pair up all the mane 6 without loose ends, I'd probably end up with:
Dash-Pinkie
Rarity-Fluttershy
AJ-Twilight

Just for kicks, what's the WORST combination of those six you can think of? I would probably say
Twilight-Dash
Pinkie-Rarity
AJ-Fluttershy

That one's harder, since the only ships I really see as a nightmare are Rarity-Dash, Rarity-AJ, and Fluttershy-Pinkie. Which leads to configurations of the remaining ponies that generally work in my mind, I can't think of a way to make all six miserable.

EDIT: Heh, Syster and I clearly have very different reads on ships, I promise that wasn't intentional

Tvtyrant
2012-07-17, 03:27 PM
AJ and Pinkie would go horribly together I think, along with Rarity and Rainbow Dash. That leaves Twilight and Fluttershy, which could be miserable due to Twilight's somewhat neglectful nature. Effectively have her take the relationship for granted, with Fluttershy too shy to say anything about it.

My best list is probably the same Eakin's. That or its simply TwilightxHarem, with her being constantly exhausted trying to date them all at once. That would be hilarious.

Lickety-Split was also a female in prior generations (he isn't now), though, so it's not at all unlikely that Star Swirl the Bearded was male in this conintuity.

And? :smallconfused:

There is no Blind Bag female G4 toy today, or any toy at all, besides, unlike Star Swirl who was consistently female in all generations including unprecedented G4 presence Lickety Split only appeared in one generation 30 years ago, and that was that (if you don't count vaguely similar G3 Lickity). It's prehistory having no bearing in this case.

Plus, I have done some research into Blind Bag canonicity, and besides giving a lot of ponies names, like Heartstrings or Breezie, Blind Bag ponies started appearing in show on Hasbro's orders. One example is early BB Blossomforth that appeared first as this toy (http://mylittlewiki.org/w/images/8/8e/Blind-blossomforth.jpg), then was given normal toy (http://mylittlewiki.org/w/images/c/c6/G4Blossomforth.jpg) (without special custom art like Star Swirl), then was elevated to full show pony (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v497/RaptorRed/Pony_Episodes/HFS_BlossomForth.png) with her own speaking lines.

Well, there would be a sort of "The Ant and the Grasshopper" (The Apple and the Pie?) vib to the whole thing.

@Eakin

Well I am still a bit rough on ships in general. This is really the first fandom I look a them closely. In other fandoms it is mostly assumed as per canon. Either way I find it very interesting and love to play around with ideas on whom works with whom.

Normally opposites may attract but you have to look at it in a certain way, to me. One has to be the male and the other the female (not being sexist or anything just dunno how else to put it). The more masculine personality will be the alpha while the feminine one is beta, usually.

So the masculine personalities of the mane 6, to me, are RD, Rarity and AJ with the other three being feminine. As before RD and Flutter seem to sisterly to be a ship, not that I don't mind a how 'cest story but that is beyond the point. AJ fits well among mostly all of the other three do to being protective. Rarity is assertive and fits best with Flutter or Pinkie. But all this is my opinion.

And then, of course, the moral of the story gets twisted because Pinkie is effectivly everyones favorite party-loving aunt, and ponies chip in to help her. And she lives with the Cakes to boot, and presumably has a lowish rent because she takes care of the kids and brings ponies into the shop. Hence, she has little need to worry about money because she can effectivly freeload her way in life.:smalltongue:

But in a plot twist, Pinkie Pie ends up being a much more effective salespony than Applejack, and actually increases profits when she moves in. Applejack resists allowing Pinkie Pie to help with the farm business, but ends up accepting after Pinkie Pie saves the farm on a bad crop year.

RD needs shorter spikier hair, she just screams sk8er to me. Rarity looks just 100% perfect to me. Pinkie looks fine but for a girl who eats as much sweets as she does she needs more curves.

I don't think I could come up with any combination of all the Mane 6 that I feel would work well. I can pair some of them, but not all six. I also think it's a little boring if all of them only date each other when there are some obvious and great ships if you expand the shipping pool a bit. Like Rarity is totally gonna end up with Fancy Pants, there's no way it can't happen, anything else - especially any of the mane 6 - are going to be poor choices for her.

Likewise with AJ and Pinkie, they're not too easy to ship within that tiny circle of friends. I suppose Thanqol did a great job with Twilight and AJ, and Pinkie Shy works a bit too, for some stories, but it's not ... super convincing in general. Not to me, at least.

It's like, you can come up with a way for almost any (reasonable) ship to work, if everything is made to fit around the idea of that ship, but you can't throw most ships into any random story and have it work. Only a few ships work in general because they don't need a whole lot of rationalization to appear viable to most people. Most ships need a lot of work and explainin' before people will accept the premise.

It's a matter of chemistry. He is everything Rarity dreamed Blueblood would be like, and more. He is clearly the complete polar opposite of Blueblood. Rich, charming and actually pleasant to be around. They fit perfectly together and really seemed to get along well. Why would they not keep in contact? And we do see them together at the end of the wedding episode, in fact. Rarity would probably go out of her way to keep in contact with somepony as important as him, if nothing else. And finally what is a bit of distance for ponies of such means?

Like the rest of the Apple Family I have a very hard time with Applebloom. I honestly can't think of a good ship for her.

Out of all of them...I honestly see Swallow and Gloryhole being in the show. Why? Glory being a hard working earth pony whom loves her job. Swallow being a friend of Fluttershy whom helps with the bird singing. Full name being Swallow Song.

Tea Bag needs to be a unicorn. Rim a pegasus that is with the Royal Guard. Snowball is innocent enough to also be in the show. Pole Dancer is just funny and needs to be a foal (dun ask why just popped into my head).


EDIT:

AppleJack x Trixie. That is my official ship when I do a fic. They fit so well in the story that Maximus wrote.

First that is directly contradicted by Starswirl the Bearded, father of the amniomorphic spell. Explicit identification as a male on air in the show means the toy is completely meaningless.

Second, far as I know Hasbro does historically maintain a canon. I would point to the Transformers where toy depictions and descriptions have little to zero bearing on the show tie-ins, which have at times been running more then one continuity at once.

So the position that anything not established on-air is so much fanon is an opinion of equal weight unless you can establish it otherwise. Namely by relevant WoG from Hasbro on the matter.

G4 toys are about as G2 ones.

On a more serious topic, I'm not sure I'm down with the Derpy/Doctor ship to be honest. Though the characters kind of work together, in as much as derpy is adorable, the Doctor is usually at his best when he sidesteps such things, and some of the least interesting bits of New-Who have been the insistance on romantic subplots involving him. Though, the Doctor Whooves stuff I've encountered mostly seems grounded in New Who heritage anyway, so I suppose such a ship is kind of inevitable, really.

I'd just like to throw out that I think FlutterMac is the best Fluttershy shipping.

*hides behind 8 inch thick lead wall.*


*joins behind the lead wall*

My fave pairings:

Twinkie
FlutterMac
FlutterDash




Agreed, it just make sense.
*takes a seat right next to Maxtronaut behind the wall*

Of the gay shipping the only one that kinda make sense is TwiPie, and you have to thank my own Pinkie & Twi for confirmation on it's viability.



Alright. Now tell me why?


I don't think I could come up with any combination of all the Mane 6 that I feel would work well. I can pair some of them, but not all six. I also think it's a little boring if all of them only date each other when there are some obvious and great ships if you expand the shipping pool a bit. Like Rarity is totally gonna end up with Fancy Pants, there's no way it can't happen, anything else - especially any of the mane 6 - are going to be poor choices for her.

Likewise with AJ and Pinkie, they're not too easy to ship within that tiny circle of friends. I suppose Thanqol did a great job with Twilight and AJ, and Pinkie Shy works a bit too, for some stories, but it's not ... super convincing in general. Not to me, at least.

It's like, you can come up with a way for almost any (reasonable) ship to work, if everything is made to fit around the idea of that ship, but you can't throw most ships into any random story and have it work. Only a few ships work in general because they don't need a whole lot of rationalization to appear viable to most people. Most ships need a lot of work and explainin' before people will accept the premise.

Agreed within the Mane 6 the only two I would ship together is Flutterdash. As for Fancy Pants X Rarity I think that would likely work. Rarity does want to move to Canterlot (She says so pretty often), we have no evidence that Fleur is Fancy Pants marefriend (My new headcanon is that she is like that mechanic from TTGL)


Bah, Scoot ends up with everyones favorite camerapegusi, Sweetie ends up with Truffle Shuffle, and Applebloom gets everyone else in her class.:smallbiggrin: (Besides Twist.)

Who is the poor pony who ended up with the name Truffle Shuffle? :smallbiggrin:

Alright so you want my list of ships do you?

FlutterDash because
The two seem perfect for each other. We've already seen that Dash is willing to slow down for and protect Fluttershy. Rainbow Dash is constantly pushing her to be better, but almost never goes to far in doing so. Rainbow Dash is always willing to help Fluttershy and seems to want Fluttershy to be part of her life more and more. She goes out of her way to include Fluttershy as well as gives things up to make her happier.

Fluttershy is willing to push her boundaries for Rainbow Dash. She understands Rainbow Dash perhaps better then anypony else. Fluttershy is also one of the ponies who can take care of Dash. She can't keep up with Dash which is actually a good thing (Rainbow Dash cannot handle competition very well. This is why I think AppleDash is doomed to failure). She seems willing to join Rainbow Dash, as long as she can continue to care for animals she'll be fine. She already admires Rainbow Dash and tries to help Dash when she can.

TwilightXLuna or Celestia because
Of her devotion to Celestia. Her opinion matters most. As long as Celestia stands by Twilight she can handle anything, even being alone. I mean her stated wish for the best night ever? Is spending the night with Celestia :smalltongue: talking.

Twilight is one of the very few ponies who is willing to treat royalty as a pony instead of a princess. She does not fear them and is more then willing to help them as a friend.

Luna has a good chance with Twilight because I think she's one of the few ponies who could break through Twilight's devotion to Celestia in order to win her over. Luna already respects Twilight and is willing to trust her. As Twilight is one of the few ponies who can get past her being an Alicorn they make a good match. Furthermore Twilight is a pony who frequently pulls all nighters. She is also an astronomer so that's likely another plus in Luna's book.

LyraXBonBon
These two don't really have much personality. (BonBon actually seems pretty inconsiderate) So there isn't much to make a case besides how much they hang around in the background together. It does seem like the two are dating though.

OctaviaXVinyl Scratch
There is literally no case made for this ship. The two seem to share night schedules which helps. (Every time we've seen either of them it has been late in the day. ) So it just depends on who they actually are. I like the fics I've read of them being together so that's why I like this ship.

FancypantsXRarity
Fancypants seems to be Rarity's dream stallion. He is at the very least interested in Rarity. Rarity does want to move to Canterlot and become famous so marrying Fancypants would help her ambitions as well. He also seems to be one of the few competent ponies in the Canterlot Elite and thus could have an equal relationship with Rarity.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------


So while we are shipping how do you handle Spike? :smallconfused:

He's a tough one to deal with:

He is physically a baby for his species.

He is older or the same age as the CMC however.

He seems to be very emotionally mature.

However this varies as times and he can lose control or have moments of self-doubt

He already is interested in romance, though his attraction to Rarity may be physical (at least initially)

Overall I would treat him as a teenager. But that isn't all of the problems.

After all he will live for hundeads if not thousands of years.

Ponies presumably do not live nearly as long.

Also he will become much much bigger then anypony else.

He may be a 'teenager' for quite some time yet.

Any other issues I missed?

Here's a thought on Dragon Society
Dragons don't tend to go on greed induced rampages at home because as soon as they start an adult will smack them down, hard.Taking away their 'horde'. This quickly teaches the young dragon restraint so they can actually keep their stuff. It also teaches them that physical power is of utmost importance.

Well, he has been growing. To be exact, compare a pic of him from the first episode to one from season two. He's getting bigger, at the very least. By the time the CmC are of good shipping age (teen's), he would probably be about as tall as a pony. Even better if we assume those teen dragons where not in there fifties and that Spike will undergo growth spurt.

Diving into the later issues are someone elses domain. I generaly avoid sad shiping stories as much as I can.

Looky.. Fluttertank!

(About half-finished...)

http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u172/AotrsCommander/fluttersawbosstemp.png

I have officially given up on maintaining a consistent colour scheme with the CADed Jalyrkieons (the army wil have one, though); partly because the first model was a different colour set (C&C GLA colour scheme in fact, as before the Jalyrkieons, it was nominallt slated for them...) So I thought sod it, may as well make them as colourful as their inspirations at this stage...!

A no-prize for anyone who actually recongises the shape.



I think I have aired my opinions on Spike, Rarity and Spike/Rarity (which there is strong evidence (relatively) for) often enough not to have to restate in detial...

Short (relatively) version for the newercomers: Spike is old enought to be left alone for days and even put in charge of other dependants, and thus I place him at mid-late-teen equivilent age (older than the CMC). Age gaps are irrelevant to relationships anyway (provided minimums are met, which as I say I ascribe Spike to being, or very close to). If Spike out-ages everypony, then shipping him with any of the CMC has identical problems to shipping him with Rarity (et al); if not, the gap is meaningless shortly anyway. I ferverantly do not like the proposition ("popular" in the earlier days of the fandom) that Spike will end up miserable and alone (because Spike is clearly by nature antithetical to the traditional dragon mindset in personality, being personable and preferring to socialise), after out-living anyone1 (because for cryin' out loud, if you can't get a happy ending in My Little Pony, then seriously what the hell); if it comes to that, there's always the Lúthien Tinúviel option. (Surely the much-vaunted power of love would find a way... (If not - then it clearly isn't all it's cracked up to be - good news for my side, then!)) However, I am also fairly convinced Spike is also a different subspecies of dragon anyway, which may not follow the same rules.

Alternatively, see It Takes a Village.




1Leaving aside the fact that there is no direct evidence of pony lifespan anywhere; and if anything, there is the suggestion that Granny Smith could be extremely old (as in hundreds of years, making her a great- (times n) grandmother to AJ)).

worrying about physical age for different species is a bit silly. same with immortals.
what's important is that both parties are of the same maturity.

in humans, the difference between someone 50 and 60 is fairly small. the difference between someone 16 and 21, despite being a smaller span of time, is HUGE.

so putting celestia with twilight seems odd, but it wouldn't in 10ish years.

spike is obviously too young for rarity, but if spike matures faster (and by all indications he does so significantly), they could have a relationship eventually.

On the other hand, how well is a relationship going to work when one of them is Granny Smith's age and build while the other is still fresh and has other responsibilities?

Celestia couldn't take care of Twilight in her old age for instance, she has a government to run.

Deadly
2012-07-17, 07:35 PM
You know, I think what Spike really needs (and probably what would happen realistically) is to learn that he's not the only nice and civil dragon around, specifically by meeting a nice dragon girl/boy (probably girl given what we've seen so far) and getting over his childish crush on Rarity.

Because I'll restate my position on SpikexRarity too: Rarity doesn't look at Spike or treat him in any way like a potential romantic partner, but like one would a small child who has a silly, immature crush on you, which is exactly what Spike is so it's totally appropriate. Rarity probably even treats him a little too much like a child, given his level of mental maturity (physically he is definitely not a teenager yet, since we've seen teenage dragons AND a teenage Spike). It's kinda sweet, but ultimately still immature and likely to pass with age. They'll remain very dear friends, probably even like "family", but I can not in any way see Spike and Rarity as lovers.

Spike may not be a teenager when compared to other dragons but he does seem to be a teenager in either pony or human terms. (I don't think we've seen somepony who was explicitly a teenager)

There is that. Though I don't think the subject of Spike aging alone has come up since Dragon Quest (and certainly ther hasn't been the same spate of Spike-is-old-and-everyone-else-is-dead fics that there were when I first started reading pony fanfic.)

in humans, the difference between someone 50 and 60 is fairly small. the difference between someone 16 and 21, despite being a smaller span of time, is HUGE.

I'd have to disagree. Like absolutely everything else about a proper relationship, it boils down to the individual's personalities (which may or may not include similar levels of maturity in personality) and the compatability thereof. Anything else is just numbers, which have no bearing on, well, anything.

Trying to define acceptable relationships by relative age is just as stupid and ridiculous as defining them by relative height; indeed, as silly, as say, trying to fit the entire complexity of every sentient being in the universe, with their diverse drives and thought and feelings, into nine pidgeonholed categories. (This does not mean people do not try. That merely makes them idiots, however; an all-to-common state in the universe.)

The ONLY restriction on relationships I hold to is the minimum threshold for legality (i.e. physical/mental maturity of both participants jusifiably enbles them to be able to decide of their own free will to enter a relationship); aside from that, I see no restictions in age, gender, species or anything else.

This does not mean I want to necessarily KNOW about it, however.


There, fixed that for you.

I have to agree, not least because I really don't see Fancypants any more credible than any other Rarity ship (and less so than Spike/Rarity, though I will admit, that is preference speaking). Were he not mentioned occasionally after the episode, I would have found him utterly forgettable.



Overall, however, I have no particular preferences for shipping (I support Spike/Rarity mostly because everypony was using Spike as their punching bag in the early days, and it's at least a subversion of the tired old cliche of younger-girl/older-guy); with the sole exception of anything that includes Discord, which I avoid like the plague. I absolutely cannot see anything remotely positive in Discord-shipping at all, as I an see no way in which it wouldn't be manipulative or abusive, and above all, out-and-out squick.

Humanized ponies. Hmmm. Well from the pics I like them all but I would make some differences. Personally AJ and Twilight need a darker skin tone. A mocha for Twi and a more blonde coffee for AJ. RD needs shorter spikier hair, she just screams sk8er to me. Rarity looks just 100% perfect to me. Pinkie looks fine but for a girl who eats as much sweets as she does she needs more curves.

I would love to be a part of this, but I just don't think I'll have the time to do it justice.




I'll see what I can cook up. I don't know that I need priority though; I've got a bit f a full platter that's working tenuously because not all of them go on weekend hiatus at once. I have yet to see what having them all in full swing will do.

worrying about physical age for different species is a bit silly. same with immortals.
what's important is that both parties are of the same maturity.

in humans, the difference between someone 50 and 60 is fairly small. the difference between someone 16 and 21, despite being a smaller span of time, is HUGE.

so putting celestia with twilight seems odd, but it wouldn't in 10ish years.

Maturity is one thing; something more than a thousand years of extra experiences is quite another. That there could be feelings is perfectly plausible, and maybe even that Twilight could try to act on them, but I can't see the Princess letting it get very far.

Theories? :smallconfused:

It's Hasbro canon, like it or not, unless you can show any proof or evidence otherwise. The existence of female G4 Starswirl is fact, implications of nickname or not. If they change it later, fine, but as it is, source that over-ridden all other forms of canon so far declared SS to be blue mare (with a lot of special attention no other "new" pony got) and no fan theory is going to change that.
Starswirl the Bearded being male is also canon, so unless he is quite feminine-looking, they are no doubt different ponies. :smalltongue: We've also never seen any toys of ponies not living today, so claiming the Star Swirl toy is Starswirl the Bearded - a 1000+ dead pony - is even more suspect.


Who is the poor pony who ended up with the name Truffle Shuffle? :smallbiggrin:
I think he's this one.

You don't think Celestia would be willing to let herself go? Spending every day, for at least a thousand years as a ruler, with nothing but "yes majesty, of course majesty" from everypony. And then one pony actually has feelings for her as a pony, rather than a princess. And if she could forget about being an immortal god-princess for just one day she could actually find some pleasure in this world.

Yeah, you're probably right, there's no reason Celestia would let it get that far.

not to mention the royal sisters don't appear that different from a normal adult pony. like, lunas concerns were very normal.
as much as people like to write it into fanfics and headcannon, they really don't act like ageless beings or creatures tortured by their (apparent) immortality.

Honestly, I've always been under the impression that Celestia and Luna internalized most of their issues with immortality (Luna seems like she would have difficulty completely opening up among to, for lack of a better term, commoners, while Celestia wouldn't want to cause her subjects any concern over her well being).

It's a matter of chemistry. He is everything Rarity dreamed Blueblood would be like, and more. He is clearly the complete polar opposite of Blueblood. Rich, charming and actually pleasant to be around. They fit perfectly together and really seemed to get along well. Why would they not keep in contact? And we do see them together at the end of the wedding episode, in fact. Rarity would probably go out of her way to keep in contact with somepony as important as him, if nothing else. And finally what is a bit of distance for ponies of such means?
I have to agree with Deadly here. I think that Rarity x Blueblood has the most potential for an actual canon pairing.

On that note... Thunderlane x Blossomforth OTP! :smalltongue:

I think it's cute


That, or a peck on the check with them both blushing would have drawn less criticism. A lip-to-lip kiss is considered a little too "adult" for children foals.

They are absolutely not foals. Pound and Pumpkin are foals, Scootaloo is a filly and Rumble a colt which is not the same thing at all. And since I've always considered cutie marks to be the pony equivalent of reaching puberty, to me they are probably around 12-13 years old. Which is why I could have shown them rutting behind the barn and that'd have been fine too (though quite a bit more mature than what I was going for)

And even if you were to assume they are younger, there's nothing unusual or wrong about children kissing each other. They do it all the time, you know, playing around when adults aren't looking. Heck, I probably kissed my first girl when I was 5 or so, to talk nothing of what else went on behind the bushes in kindergarten. You'd be surprised what kids get up to with their friends, but I wager a lot of people forget what they did as kids when they grow older. (We also grow a lot more shy, I sure wish I had the courage and confidence of my childhood self, who got a lot more girls than I do :smallredface:)

So to Haydes with the criticism. I wanted to draw something cute and innocent, and I feel that's what I've done. If some people get all worked up over it that's not my problem. I'm really proud of that comic, I feel it's my best work yet, and I think it's really, really cute.[/rant]

Sure, I guess they get a little passionate at the end, and maybe something less would have worked better, I don't know, but I still think it's cute as hay.

Sorry for the rant

Looky.. Fluttertank!

(About half-finished...)

I have officially given up on maintaining a consistent colour scheme with the CADed Jalyrkieons (the army wil have one, though); partly because the first model was a different colour set (C&C GLA colour scheme in fact, as before the Jalyrkieons, it was nominallt slated for them...) So I thought sod it, may as well make them as colourful as their inspirations at this stage...!

A no-prize for anyone who actually recongises the shape.
Could be wrong, but is that Saw Boss from Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors?

Which would make Fluttertank part plant, wouldn't it? I see what you did there.


I absolutely cannot see anything remotely positive in Discord-shipping at all, as I an see no way in which it wouldn't be manipulative or abusive, and above all, out-and-out squick.
I agree with you on that. I've seen a couple of cute Discord ships, but all rely on him being wildly out of character. And usually much younger.

I love that first one. I saw Ego was selling a print of it at Bronycon, but I hesitated and it was gone by the time I'd made up my mind. :smallfrown: All the sads.


LoL Ponythreaders!

I come to you again beseeching fun times and shenanigans. This time, I think we'll shoot for 10 am Thursday morning (that's EST) so that Diego has a chance to make it. I think what we'll do is alternate the times so that different folks have chances to attend, and nopony gets left out.

EDIT: We could just do another get-together that night if folks were up for it. Say, 8 PM again?
Let's see... that's 3pm for me. I should indeed be able to make it!

Now to remember how to play *has only played 3 matches, all with bots*.

Give that pony a sugarcube!

Thought it must be admitted, it won't actually have a saw blade on top (those aren't really helpful in armoured combat!), but a regular turret. That might homage it a bit, I dunno. (For one, I'd struggle to CAD a complex shape like the vines.)

Yes, that was, in fact, part of my cunning plan, and not entirely co-incidental at all.

A draft of Chapter 4 (http://sta.sh/01iavchj89z2) and the final one of Roots of a Heart. I feel like there are probably a lot of improvements that could be done to this one, but over all I'm feeling pretty good about the general conclusion to this story. As always I would appreciate any honest critique

this question immediately makes me think of clockwork doing something to the effect of
"ship? we don't have a ship*
*zoom out*
"we have an entire fleet"

2 Entire fleets. With the mighty Lich having one all to himself.


With everyones names on the side of the ships.

"The SSS LIXI is our pride and joy!"

Theories? :smallconfused:

It's Hasbro canon, like it or not, unless you can show any proof or evidence otherwise. The existence of female G4 Starswirl is fact, implications of nickname or not. If they change it later, fine, but as it is, source that over-ridden all other forms of canon so far declared SS to be blue mare (with a lot of special attention no other "new" pony got) and no fan theory is going to change that.

Canon as it is used involves a narrative. Toys don't have those. And if The toys are what defines canon then that lets in all the sideline products such as the trading cards.
The show offers plenty of incentive to use good ol horse sense; no reason to toss that aside now.



No worries guys if you're too busy to fit another RP in.:smallredface:

It's still in early concept stages anywhoo. At the moment I'm just conceptually mapping out some areas we might visit, and beginning to compile a list of potential NPCs'. If anyone has some tips, based off their own experience GMing or playing, feel free to toss them in my direction ^^;

I don't think I can nail down much more in detail of the plot until I get some players on board though. If anyone else is interested let me know!

Decide now if it's going to be based off of your plot or off of the character's personalities and goals. Because the two are crazy different.

A game where the point is to go to the dragon's lair, triumph, and save the princess in time to come back and find it was all a rise to depose the duke of Whinnyapolis will play the same no matter who the characters are. That's my definition of plot based.

A game with a lot of hooks and a lot of asking the players "so what do you want to do?" and the entire story system unfolds based on how they act an interact is a character based game.

The two have remarkably different requirements at the upper levels. Further, they've become hard to differentiate because most games mix the elements. D&D modules have specific goals and benchmarks but try to be open to how it is achieved and whether you follow through, succeed or fail. That's mostly plot but with character not precluded, for example.

So really, ask yourself, and ten tell the players; will this game have a plot of the week to go adventure on? Or will it be free range so make sure you have interesting personality? That's the biggest question for an early DM/GM/ST, I think. The biggest hurdle. Having a game the players want to play.

Either one is fine, but knowing the difference could save your life.

Honestly, I've always been under the impression that Celestia and Luna internalized most of their issues with immortality (Luna seems like she would have difficulty completely opening up among to, for lack of a better term, commoners, while Celestia wouldn't want to cause her subjects any concern over her well being).

The trouble there is, we have no reason to think a naturally immortal creature would angst over any of this.

If a creature exists which has an exceptionally long lifespan, it can be taken for granted they have coping mechanisms to take this into account. They would have to! I recall it vein considered a scientific fact that the older you are, the faster time moves for you. How would they accommodate this? Forgetfulness? Gallophreyan regeneration? Just sort of general Fey natures? Do they abstract it to a game and play god like it was Simcity?

There would be a mechanism. Saying that an inferred lack is proof that they cannot be eternal doesn't hold water. Though it's an interesting angle to explore. We know that whether or not Celestia is and was eternal, she wasn't always there, for example.


:smallfrown:

I think it's cute

They are absolutely not foals. Pound and Pumpkin are foals, Scootaloo is a filly and Rumble a colt which is not the same thing at all. And since I've always considered cutie marks to be the pony equivalent of reaching puberty, to me they are probably around 12-13 years old. Which is why I could have shown them rutting behind the barn and that'd have been fine too (though quite a bit more mature than what I was going for)

And even if you were to assume they are younger, there's nothing unusual or wrong about children kissing each other. They do it all the time, you know, playing around when adults aren't looking. Heck, I probably kissed my first girl when I was 5 or so, to talk nothing of what else went on behind the bushes in kindergarten. You'd be surprised what kids get up to with their friends, but I wager a lot of people forget what they did as kids when they grow older. (We also grow a lot more shy, I sure wish I had the courage and confidence of my childhood self, who got a lot more girls than I do :smallredface:)

So to Haydes with the criticism. I wanted to draw something cute and innocent, and I feel that's what I've done. If some people get all worked up over it that's not my problem. I'm really proud of that comic, I feel it's my best work yet, and I think it's really, really cute.[/rant]

Sure, I guess they get a little passionate at the end, and maybe something less would have worked better, I don't know, but I still think it's cute as hay.

Sorry for the rant

First was what I was looking for
Second is ehhh but I can't cater only to my own tastes
Third OH CELESTIA YES WHY WHY DIS THEY DO THAT UUIRGH
Fourth was a pleasant surprise that grew on me over the course of about four seconds. Initial reaction was negative.

in contrast, I just had an argument for an hour about whether or not bacteria could do anything at all to an alien. For an hour. We discussed how the distance from the star, the type of star, the basic composition of a planet, of life, of it's possible variation, could affect such things. My stance was that on a mechanical level there is no immunity, just resistance, an bacteria function on a mechanical and chemical level predominantly.

And it ended civilly.

And then an Xbox buddy, Derpy, jumped on and wondered why no one had told him the seventh friendship is witchcraft had been released. It's been an interesting enough experience that I ha to share. And Braz, I'm sorry. I promise every ten minutes were punctuated with "no really guys let's wrap this up".

They sell them in Tesco, Hamlies and they finally started selling them in forbidden Planet.

EDIT: Although I wouldn't go to Hamlies for them, they're more then double the price there.

Dammit. Can't bring to mind a big Tesco near us (somehow I doubt the smaller ones, like Express, will carry 'em), don't have Hamlies and we don't have a Forbidden Planet close by since the Derby store closed...

*sigh*

Well, we do have to go shopping later this week; maybe I'll get lucky and - ahahahahaha! sorry, no can't say that with a straight skull - Sainsbury's or Asda will have got some in too or something.

Edit: on inspection, we do have some larger Tescos, but in somewhat awkward places... Maybe I can persuade parents to go shopping there (as otherwise, it's not worth the petrol cost of driving to one on the off-chance they might have some ponies; at that point I might as well ebay 'em...)

One thing that might've helped (and may look incredibly adorable too, but that's just my personal preference) is to not have both of their eyes closed. I personally would see Scootaloo as the instigator here, so Rumble would be the one surprised by this turn of events. Maybe not dinner-plate eyes, face entirely flushed surprised, but at least a little bit stunned. To me, that would seem much less passionate and much more innocent, and seeing Rumble like that would be its own brand of adorable.

Of course it's your art, and I want to say I do like the comic. Just throwing out an idea that could be a neat thing to see.

Never said there was anything wrong. In fact, I totally agree and wish to subscribe to your newsletter. :smallsmile:



In all honesty, I like FleurXFancy Pants. It just seems... right? :smallconfused:

My daughter and I came up with the funny idea that Fleur is Fancy Pants' cousin and thus we have our awkward "I thought you were spoken for!" episode with Rarity. 'sides, I assumed that wedding photo in the season 2 finale of Fancy and Rarity was a shipping tease for us fans. :smallbiggrin:
I could be wrong though, but hey, we all got odd ideas.
