Trixie's Great and Powerful Guide v1.99e
Love 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'; }})();

Having been around for a dozen threads and successfully suggesting a name for this one (that I didn't even vote for!), I think I can call myself a regular now.

Naaah, if you read the ending of about twenty last MLP threads, you will know that I, Inventive and Creative Trrrixie, alone invent new name ideas and no one besides me really votes for them. So, nope, you can't claim the credit http://i.imgur.com/N2nfK.jpg

Anyway, I had something really special planned for beginning of thread 50 but among others, speed of last thread, my sickness and the slow as usual snail mail delayed it, so... Reveal in Monday, hopefully? :smallfrown:

*sits idly watching the time tick by*

you know I'm kind of considering it...


What in Equestria!? This is my penmanship but I never wrote this! I would never authorise such irresponsible behaviour! Who could have done this?

No matter. I will get to the bottom of this soon enough. In the meantime, Professor Irving Boffinspark, I would never give anypony to right to break laws as they see fit as you have done. And as your assistant has explained, you are still considered an Equestrian citizen and are under our juridiction. I am relieving you of your control over the Orbital Friendship Cannon network, effective immediately. The activation codes are being changed as we speak. In addition, your diplomatic immunity is hereby revoked and my guards are on their way to bring you into custody.
Sisters above you're a tough one follow @.@
Might I request an extra return or two just to make formatting easier to follow? 9.6
Good call Your Grace. Might I suggest settling the political affairs soon? Pyria may decide to actually declare war.


Now, as for you, *she turns to Starry* I think it's time you explained just who you are and what you want. Why are you disguised as a changeling disguised as yourself?

Ah, yes. *Um.

An explanation! For... Why.
There is one


And


I have it.


And! I... Will give it.


To you.


Yes.

You will have an explanation.






Oh, thank you Princess Celesti-

Err, I assure you, it's a skin condition. The wings are strap-on's. Can never be to prepared for Nightmare Night, ehh?

"cheezy grin"

Oh, Boffenspark, from this day forth, you will be hunted. Your family, your friends, all will be slowly removed from the numbers of the living. You know, it's funny: I never thought this day would happen. Yet here we are, you out of your arial death mechine and I prepared as always. I think we both knew this day was going to happen. Don't you hate yourself for not seeing it sooner? You know, if you give up now, I wont nail your hooves into the front gates of Tartarus.

Oh, no. One of the upsides to Boffenspark's work is...

I hope you appreciate this foul taste in my mouth professor

Is that he exceeds the power specs on EVERYTHING. tell me, how could true seeing of the non-divine variety see through a physical rearrangement of form? That's like seeing your young self when viewing the old you. That's stupid.

Even moreso, how could it see through what is fictionally a reincarnation? No, Silent Night. What we see is a distinctly animate, rotting corpse filled with pus of the souls, and a seething emptiness playing at mattering in the grand scheme on the strings of some would be divinity.


Boffie here may have gone overboard but that can be sorted out. But you? You're just the villain of the week.

.....Ow. Think I actualy felt physical pain at that last one. I must admit, you do bring up some interesting ideas, most of which are crafted to hurt my will to exist on the plane of the living.

While I will refrain from possibly embaressing myself on matters related to arcane magic (But I will state that there are plenty of spells functionaly the same in use that does not, in fact, require the divine, but uses varying creatures from other plane's or even certent members of the more betenticaled Powers That Be.), I can say for certent that if you look at any undead creature you might see the same thing. Take a glance at a mummy and see if it's god still pay's attention. Oh, yes, they do.

Or perhapes look at any of the local Lich population and see that they are, in fact, deep down, exactly how they appear to the outside world. Dry, aged, and so vain as too merge there soul and there body as if they wished to pretend to be a member of the Lights Apon The High. Simple materialism. I have the decency to admit when the jig is up and find a new home. But they eagerly cling to there mortal shells like a child and there blanket, occasionaly finding new things to stich on it. The Bleakbane is simply a creature subservent to a higher power who has nice toys to play with.

To put it mildly, I would say that if what you see is correct, than it's hardly noteworthy compared to what other's around you are in reality. Also, I prefer to call the substance inside my rotten form as "essance of the mind". Pus is a substance that I would only use in discribing what make's up Boffensparks frontal lobe.

That is somewhat terrifying. just you know, for the record.

(personally I feel Blueblood's children aren't all that bad. Heck, it was Blueblood the second who wrote up a fine bill of legislation specifically to end nepotism and power derived from legal loopholes in Equestria!

Some pony has obviously missed not not every worldview centers around the body being a mere vessel for the "important bits". That's why you're necromancy has always taken the same tac. That's why it's so predictable. I may not have the full knowledge of my predecessor, but necromancy is the magic of life and death, not some jumped up corpse bobbing on a string! You have lost sight of way is important, what matters! So tell me Silent, if the spirit is all that matters, if the material doesn't matter, if you haven't given up everything important and now cling to the lost remnants of yourself in desperate hope that you might actually matter you stinking pile I rotti meat and spiritual malaise, then do me a favor.

Die.

Just go and die. Let go and stop playing with the baubles you find so worthless. Move on to your bigger and better things. If the lich is holding on worthless dust and playing make believe, Silent Night, then so are you. At least he's proficient. So why play? You don't like the game, you don't want to win, you don't mind losing, and you don't enjoy the company of the other players. So just go.

Required music video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12460rr3sxk&feature=related)

Is the Luna w/ rose at ~20 seonds drawn by our very own Adcoon? because that would be neat :smallsmile:




... Posting from a computer is hard o_O

If I'm remembering right, yes, yes it is.
Confirmed:

And to your last statement: what. I am completely confused how it could be at all deemed difficult to post from a computer. Comfort levels with previous post habits or not.

The text is about as small to me on the computer as a 4-point don't would e for you. Lacking a desk, my text interface is akin to having an ergonomic French keyboard balanced on an orange and you can only use one hand at a time. I also have some pretty sloppy habits. Like allowing a software interface to handle most punctuation, since trying to do it manually actually makes my text less legible.

Some pony has obviously missed not not every worldview centers around the body being a mere vessel for the "important bits". That's why you're necromancy has always taken the same tac. That's why it's so predictable. I may not have the full knowledge of my predecessor, but necromancy is the magic of life and death, not some jumped up corpse bobbing on a string! You have lost sight of way is important, what matters! So tell me Silent, if the spirit is all that matters, if the material doesn't matter, if you haven't given up everything important and now cling to the lost remnants of yourself in desperate hope that you might actually matter you stinking pile I rotti meat and spiritual malaise, then do me a favor.

Die.

Just go and die. Let go and stop playing with the baubles you find so worthless. Move on to your bigger and better things. If the lich is holding on worthless dust and playing make believe, Silent Night, then so are you. At least he's proficient. So why play? You don't like the game, you don't want to win, you don't mind losing, and you don't enjoy the company of the other players. So just go.

...I like the game. It amuses me. Notice that I actualy was killed. I still came back. I have kin to look after. Both me and the Lich might be holding onto dust, but mine is golden. I have things to do, a cult to lead. I actualy have goals besides mindlessly marching to by forth and shooting at things. I find Boffie amusing, you a interesting conversationist, and..... most superbeings here potent allies waiting to be used. Clockorks amusing as well, I suppose. I like the game, and loseing is only a loss when something is lost. If anything, both myself and Boffenspark have benifited from our intense hatred of each other.

Hate is a special kind of love.

Exactly my point. Actualy, I could let go right now. But then I would be caste off into the winds as a powerless mass of shadow and dust. The game matters because I am still around. And if I am still around, I can get what I want out of it while possibly screwing others over for giggles.

I'm bored. Pop quiz time!

Make a pitch for an episode revolving around dealing with anger. Who does it focus on? What causes the anger? On what aspect of dealing with anger does it focus? How is the situation resolved?

GO!
A new griffon moves to Ponyville, and Pinkie Pie must deal with her irrational hatred of griffons to welcome the newest resident.

Not quite sure the impact of an ergonomic keyboard would be to me nor how much would balancing it on an orange, but I have +30 words per minute with one hand (and 80ish with two).
No excuses. (I would put in that Twilight clip from A Bird in a Hoof, but having troubles with youtube right now).
It's your own fault for developing lazy habits.

Has everypony seen this new Twilight Sparkle parasprite shooter game? (http://infinitydash.deviantart.com/art/Twilight-Sparkle-Pest-Exterminator-317444114)

I've gotten to level 9, but I'm using a laptop trackpad, which makes it really hard to aim properly.

I'm still about seven pages back on last thread, but I come to bear the offering of the latest Discord Storytime from the IRC.
[21:23:04] Discord conjures up the familiar fire-place setting from out of the ether around him in his disjointed mind, a pink and green polka-dotted rug appearing in front of the cozy blaze while a high-backed, over-stuffed leather chair appears for the draconequus to sit in. "Ahh, the familiar comforts and familiar guests. Tonight, you're all part of my experiment in
[21:23:10] <RedRocket> You can't sit on my auntie unless you bring smores.
[21:23:24] Tect has smores.
[21:23:24] <Vinyl> You can't sit on me at all. @_@
[21:23:32] RedRocket noms a smore. "You may pass."
[21:23:34] <@Discord> improvisation...what sort of story would you ponies like to hear? History? Fiction? Action? Adventure? *Blech* Romance?"
[21:23:49] <Tect> Uhh... adventure!
[21:23:59] <RedRocket> "HISTORYADVENTUREACTIONFICTIONPIRATEROMANCE WITH AUNTIE BEING AWESOME!"
[21:23:59] Frostfire has joined #DiscordStoryTime
[21:24:09] <InkwellBookwrite> .... >.>
[21:24:40] <@Discord> "...I'm the spirit of chaos and disharmony, but I can't do the utterly impossible and make your auntie be awesome." XD :P
[21:24:43] <@Discord> (Had to do it. XD)
[21:24:52] <InkwellBookwrite> HAH!
[21:25:17] <Vinyl> When I get up, I'mgoing to kick your plot. @_@
[21:25:27] <RedRocket> That's because you're all chaos
[21:25:29] <RedRocket> And chaos is bad
[21:25:40] <InkwellBookwrite> Chaos isn't bad.
[21:25:40] <RedRocket> So chaos can't do good things, like talk about auntie being awesome
[21:25:44] <InkwellBookwrite> Chaos is chaotic.
[21:25:46] <RedRocket> Because she's always awesome. *nods8
[21:25:47] White_Wind has joined #DiscordStoryTime
[21:26:02] <Vinyl> Good girl. You get cookies later.
[21:26:04] <RedRocket> :)
[21:26:20] <@Discord> "...What do they teach ponies these days? Chaos? /Bad/? Moi? Shameful! In either case, that's a vote for adventure and historyadventureactionfictionpirateromance."
[21:26:35] <White_Wind> "Um... Am I too late to vote?"
[21:26:42] <Random_dinosaur> Historical adventure, mebbe?
[21:26:50] <Tect> Psst. vote adventure.
[21:26:54] <InkwellBookwrite> Adventure and Pirates sounds good to me. ^^
[21:27:04] <@Discord> "Not at all. Vote away!"
[21:27:12] <RedRocket> "Momma said that chaos was bad. And that I shouldn't go into the wagons of strangers offering me super powers."
[21:27:16] Discord pops those nifty little numerical pads so ponies can input votes. XD
[21:27:47] <Random_dinosaur> ...you know, I'm pretty sure most foals get warned about strangers offering candy.
[21:27:53] <White_Wind> "Well, adventure is the one that tends to see some good traveling... I think I'll vote for that.
[21:28:04] <RedRocket> Momma said it was "X-Pier-Ance!"
[21:29:46] <RedRocket> But I think she was wrong about that one, because now I can /sneeze/ with my eyes /open/!
[21:30:00] <RedRocket> That's a superpower, right?
[21:30:29] <InkwellBookwrite> ... No, that's... more kinda disturbing.
[21:30:36] <InkwellBookwrite> Especially if your eyes pop out.
[21:30:47] <InkwellBookwrite> Then it'd be disturbing and kinda googly eyed.
[21:30:52] <RedRocket> O_O Can that happen?
[21:30:56] Discord settles into his chair and cracks his knuckles, "Historical adventure story it is then! What shall it be then? Do you ponies want to know where changelings came fromm?" Shadowy shapes bound around the edges of the room, green eyes bright in the darkness of the story-telling room. "Or do you want to hear about Nightmare Moon and 'poor' Celly?"
[21:31:26] <@Discord> "Perhaps you'd like a fabulous story about beautiful me instead?"
[21:31:41] <InkwellBookwrite> Ooohhh, changelings. ^^
[21:31:46] <Random_dinosaur> Can we have a story with changelings /and/ you?
[21:31:50] <Random_dinosaur> That would be the best story ever.
[21:31:52] <RedRocket> ....Momma said everypony is special and beautiful in their own way.
[21:32:01] <RedRocket> But you're not a pony.
[21:32:08] <RedRocket> Does that make it ok to call you ugly?
[21:32:11] <Tect> "Red. That's /rude/."
[21:32:13] <InkwellBookwrite> ... Actually, why do I get the rough feeling that all of these things may be involved... >.>
[21:32:15] <Tect> >:[
[21:32:25] <RedRocket> Is it not ok?
[21:32:34] <Tect> "It's not OK." >:[
[21:32:37] <RedRocket> Ok.
[21:32:49] <@Discord> (Because Discord is best story-teller Inkwell. :P XD)
[21:33:55] White_Wind lays down on her belly and rests her head in her hooves.
[21:34:30] Vorpalbob snuggles a Tect.
[21:35:05] Frostfire offers Wind a blanket.
[21:35:11] Tect chooses Vorpalbob as his pillow.
[21:35:16] <@Discord> "Very well, roast up the chocolate and stir the smores, it's time for a riveting story about the origins of ponies with legs like swiss cheese!"
[21:35:56] RedRocket noms a smore. "Can you eat everythingpony legs?"
[21:36:18] Random_dinosaur is now known as Random_alicat
[21:36:25] White_Wind thanks Frostfire and offers him a small packet of trail mix from one of her pockets.
[21:36:46] Random_alicat perches on a convenient cranium.
[21:37:05] <Frostfire> (Ack... how to step out of this without offending anypony?)
[21:37:24] Discord pulls a thick tome out of mid-air, blowing out a thick cloud of dust that obscures the entire room if not for the light of the fire, hanging thick until finally it begins to settle and reveal an idyllic setting in a wholesome town surrounded by flowers and forest. Ponies scamper from place to place, playing gaily in the warm light of the sun above.
[21:37:31] <RedRocket> (Just....leave?)
[21:37:38] <Frostfire> ('Sorry, I'm just not really a fan of changelings?')
[21:37:46] <Tect> (Just leave, don't say anything.)
[21:38:05] <@Discord> (I apologize ahead of time for spelling errors, I'm away from my normal computer that spell-checks stuff in Mibbit...and you can just leave Frostfire. XD Not offensive really if it's not to your tastes.)
[21:38:13] Frostfire has left #DiscordStoryTime
[21:38:26] <RedRocket> Ohh. Shiny. O_O
[21:40:28] <@Discord> "Our story begins many many years ago, before your beloved princesses stepped up to 'guide' the country of Equestria to it's current state of peace and order. The tribes had united under the chilling threat of gusty wind-bags, reveling in all they learned and accomplished helping one another in mutual harmony." You can /hear/ the distaste in his voice.
[21:40:54] <Tect> :S
[21:42:26] White_Wind cheers. ''Wooo-...hoo?''
[21:42:26] <@Discord> "Despite all the progress that the tribes made in mending their fences, one doesn't simply wipe away a century of argument, fighting, distrust, and war...resentment simmered beneath the surface among earth ponies, pegasi, and unicorns alike who refused to change their ways." Some of the ponies cease to play, glaring at each other from across the field, storm
[21:42:46] White_Wind buries her head in her blanket.
[21:42:47] <RedRocket> Those ponies are being mean. That makes /them/ mean.
[21:43:52] <@Discord> clouds gathering in the sky above as they turn away from one another in distaste. "At first, it seemed as if history was destined to repeat itself, bringing a return to chilly winter and the quenching of the Fire of Friendship...but then something miraculous happened." The scene shifts to that of an earth pony stallion and pegasus mare, staring down at a
[21:45:14] <@Discord> blanket-swaddled bundle with awe. The draconequus swirls the perspective around so his avid listeners can see as well...an adorable foal with the horn of a unicorn, the wings of a pegasus, and that healthy 'glow' of earth ponies at once. Other ponies begin to gather around in amazement as well, even those that had been glaring at one another!
[21:46:07] <InkwellBookwrite> "Aaaww..."
[21:46:15] <RedRocket> That's a princess pony!
[21:46:35] <Tect> :O
[21:47:07] White_Wind pokes her head out from under the blanket and oooooohs.
[21:47:18] <@Discord> "The first winged unicorn was born...alicorn as you call them today. Until that day, the tribes had never heard of such a thing and marveled at the event! A pony that embodied all the best traits of all three tribes, the first alicorn became a symbol of unity that soothed the tempers of the discontents, a symbol of the age of peace to come." Time begins to
[21:49:00] <@Discord> fast-forward quickly, the ponies around the listeners growing old quickly and replaced by new ponies as the alicorn foal grows older as well...and is joined by others. Two...three...four...a dozen. All grow to adulthood and freeze in time there, using their unique gifts to help ponies, minotaurs, griffons, and other races as one. "Nopony knew why alicorns
[21:50:31] <@Discord> were born, but every pony could understand how powerful they were, as well as how wise they became with age. Each of these winged unicorns grew to become a leader of ponies in their own right, but they lead solitary lives...for how can a being immortal grow close to the flicker of mortal lives without being burned when they die out?" The scene grows
[21:50:49] <RedRocket> That is a lot of princess ponies.
[21:51:51] <@Discord> melancholy as the alicorns watch generation after generation of ponies grow older and pass on...but then time slows down and begins to focus on the mortal ponies once more."Not all were content though...just as earth ponies used to harbor jealousy of pegasus and unicorns...regular ponies grew jealous of the alicorns, so aloof...so powerful. So beyond their
[21:53:20] <@Discord> reach..and in their separation, the alicorns never suspected that their subjects might be discontent over such a trivial matter. That one enterprising earth pony might seek the answer of 'why' and 'how' of the alicorns." A somewhat buff earth pony appears, wearing a crown atop his head, peering curiously at the alicorns but one in particular...a black alicorn
[21:54:42] <@Discord> with a pink mane and purple eyes. "He wanted to discover why alicorns were born, if they could become a tribe unto themselves...he believed that the answer to this question would reveal the secret to him and so he sought the most elusive thign in all of Equestria...the love of an alicorn."
[21:55:16] <Tect> O:
[21:55:40] <Tect> "Wait... that's /romance/! He snuck romance in here!"
[21:55:44] Tect is aghast.
[21:56:10] <Random_alicat> "I'm not sure it really counts as /romantic/, even if there is romancing."

[21:56:57] <RedRocket> Princess ponies can marry non-princess ponies!
[21:57:08] Discord turns the page of his book, a montage of events flickering by almost too fast for listeners to distinguish between them. The prince brought the aloof unicorn flowers and candies, trying to win her heart with material gains, to be turned away. He brings the disaffected alicorn to the opera and fancy restaurants, hoping the romantic surroundings would
[21:57:11] <RedRocket> There's pinkprincesspony!
[21:58:46] <@Discord> soften her cold heart, but no. He's seen begging on his belly, in tears as he tries to return the alicorn back to the concerns of mortals...just for the alicorn to turn him away once more, looking all the more sorrowful. "...Eventually, he realized that he could not win his heart's desire on his own. The alicorn would never allow herself to love a mortal pony
[22:00:21] <@Discord> as you do one another with such ease, afraid of the terrible heartache that would inevitably follow. So, in his despair...the prince turned outwards for help. He turned to a being he had as much hope of understanding as the alicorns. He turned to an ancient creature, said to predate the alicorns and even ponies...he turned to /me/." The prince thrashes what
[22:02:00] <@Discord> looks like a bedroom, sending his belongings crashing to the ground in his fury, crying out silently to the skies above, to any that might hear him. With a flash of light, a familiar shape appears in a nearby mirrow, crafty yellow eyes narrowed with glee. "He demanded and begged that I /force/ the alicorn to love him, for his curiousity had become obsession..
[22:02:32] <Tect> D:
[22:02:47] <InkwellBookwrite> "... Oh dear, I think I've heard this part of the story elsewhere."
[22:03:50] <@Discord> it wasn't enough that he find his answer, he must /have/ the alicorn's love." Discord chuckles merrily enough as he flips the page of his book, "The silly pony knew not that nothing can simply /create/ true love...even Cadence can only mend and enhance what already exists, but reason was beyond him at this point." The mirror Discord consoles the frantic
[22:04:13] <RedRocket> I_I
[22:05:50] <@Discord> earth-pony before drawing a heart-shape on the glass, a vial falling out of the mirror with a scroll hidden within. "He wanted love...nothing more, nothing less and that is what he got. A puft of cloud, a bright rainbow's glow, stir it up with a pegasus' feather, and serve it to a pony who isn't in the know...his potion crafting was genius, potent enough that
[22:06:34] White_Wind huddles deeper into her blanket, drawing her wings in closely.
[22:08:55] <@Discord> it could even affect an alicorn." The earth pony finishes his concoction and rushes to the pink-maned alicorn, inviting her to one last dinner...one last chance...and slips the love poison into the wine when the alicorn didn't watch. "Their love was instantenous...it was irrefutable...it was a /lie/." Now the scene moves to the new couple, cavorting and
[22:09:20] <RedRocket> That sounds mean.
[22:10:27] <@Discord> dancing, eye's swirly with compelled love as the kingdom of the alicorn queen and earth pony prince falls to ruin and chaos. Neither country had a leader and both felt the effects...for the first time since the birth of the alicorns, a pony kingdom lacked an alicorn to guide it and other races noticed. A vast blue dragon cast it's shadow over the listeners
[22:12:29] <@Discord> . It settles atop the spires of a fantastical looking ivory castle with sweeping towers and graceful arches between them, looking as delicate as glass. With no protection, the dragon takes control of both countries, ponies forced to dig for gems as the prince and queen eat a picnic in the park. They slave away and grumble unhappily to one another as the
[22:13:50] <@Discord> dragon's hoard grows and so does it's greed until finally enough was enough! They group together and escape from the dragon's clutches...forcing the two enraptured nobles apart, trying to focus them on their royal duties. "It was some time before they stumbled upon the cure and ponies rejoiced when the alicorn swiftly ousted the dragon and took control of her
[22:15:24] <@Discord> kingdom once more." An epic battle is hinted at in the clouds above, flashes of magic accompanied by bursts of dragon fire that echo like thunder, filling the air with the smell of ash and ozone. "Nopony could guess how my punch had affected the alicorn...after years of pouring out her heart to another, all of the love in her heart had been used up...she felt
[22:16:54] <@Discord> love no longer and it's memory tormented the poor thing. Just as she could no longer give her subjects the love she desperately wanted too...she could no longer feel their love in turn. Compared to the prince's burning heart, adoration, gratitude, and simple respect did nothing to fill the void. She was alone and despaired..."
[22:18:45] Discord turns the page, cutting the story back to the earth pony prince, desolately sitting in a corner with his eyes on the ground, unwilling to look up at any pony who entered his presence. His apathy was as potent as the alicorn's hunger for love, he cared not what happened around him once his obsession had crumbled to so much garbage. Servants walked in and
[22:20:13] <@Discord> out with the prince's possessions, taking everything from the stallion...until only one thing remained. The prince had hidden away the vial and parchment given to him so long ago, refusing to let any other pony burn up in the love poison's grip as he had. "Time...was not kind. The prince passed away shortly thereafter, to my regret, while the alicorn...she
[22:21:43] <@Discord> became something more." A nightmarish scene follows as the alicorn queen bolts too and fro, screaming her pain at the heavens as darkness coalesces around her, a Discord-in-miniature watching the scene with popcorn from a distance...A Nightmare was born, an alicorn lost to darker emotions and singularly focused on what had changed her. As little Woona became
[22:23:17] <@Discord> fixated on showing the beauty of the night...this Nightmare wanted love.../needed/ love. She couldn't stand the void within her any longer and set upon an idea of fiendish portent. She returned to the kingdom of her former beloved and turned the kingdom on it's head as the other alicorns began to worry and gather. They tried to turn their errant sister back
[22:24:01] GadLog has quit IRC: Ping timeout: 258 seconds

The scene turns darker still...the Nightmare carries the glowing green bottle back to her kingdom, pouring it's contents into a resovoir for
[22:27:00] <@Discord> her capital city. Ponies began to drink and travel, trying to find the focus of their newfound love as their coats turned black. The alicorns watched in horror as the Nightmare basked in the love of it's subjects, and moved to stop this abominable act, just for a tiny figure to intervene...this new love poison appeared in the Nightmare's wine, tipping over to
[22:28:35] <@Discord> fill the glass as the 'queen' prepared a toast over her hollow victory. "How could she know? The love her subjects gave her was hollow...empty...an alicorn cannot stand in the presence of a lie, it's presence is anathema to them. She was as hollow as the love heaped upon her, soaking it in but unable to mend her shattered heart. When at last she tasted her
[22:29:56] <@Discord> own medicine..." She drinks the wine before the listener's eyes...and screams a wail the likes of which was never heard again since that moment. The Nightmare's body shuddered and changed, reflecting the emptiness within her as holes appears in her legs and wings. "She loved her subjects as she had lvoed before...but had no love to give. She yearned for the l

The draconequus sighs softly as he turns the page, revealing a pulsing green cocoon forming around the Nightmare's shuddering frame...black hearts flying out from it to strike the queen's thralls, seeking them out, guided by the

"When the cocoon opened..the first changeling queen entered the world. Her need for love unable to ever be filled, her capacity to understand it...nonexistent."
[22:36:32] Discord raises his lion's paw, "Half of her being the corrupted evil of a Nightmare..." He then raises his eagle claw, "the other, distilled chaos poured into a vessel incapable of purging it. Together...she became a changeling. Incapable of being loved, she had to feed on it from others." Other cocoons form in the city as the other alicorns recoil from what has
[22:38:34] <@Discord> transpired, as these new cocoons open to release a flood of changeling drones. Their queen had the power to weather the transformation, but her thralls had succumbed to it, subsumed by her personality and her hunger. "They ached for their queen's love, but she could only give love that she had stolen..and thus the hive began, seeking out ponies to impersonate
[22:39:44] <@Discord> eating love and bring love to their queen." The scenes playing out seem born out of a paranoid pony's imaginings of conspiracy theories and fever dreams. These new changlings infiltrate pony city after pony city, taking up important roles or 'marrying' themselves to good-hearted individuals full of love...eventually emptying them of all the love they
[22:41:34] White_Wind gasps!
[22:42:11] <@Discord> possessed...turning them into changlings in turn. The hive grew...and grew...until the other alicorns were forced to take action. A small group of them went to confront their sister one last time, to attempt reason...to cure her. "They were foolish foals...by then the hive had grown too strong...even if they were alicorns, they couldn't escape the onslaught

[22:46:12] <@Discord> remaining alicorns in battle...a battle that Equestrian history cannot comprehend and Discord can barely do justice. The magic thrown between alicorns are sheets of rainbows and light, combated by sickly tides of green that quake the earth and leave it desolate. Equestria was ravaged by the battle...but the queen's power had weakened with their transformation
[22:46:32] Veneousaur has joined #DiscordStoryTime
[22:48:05] <@Discord> . It was finite, like their capacity for love and the alicorns began to push them back. The land is made safe once more as the remaining changeling queens are forced beyond the borders of Equestria and other countries, to a place without love where their power would weaken in time. "They hoped that as the queen's were starved of love, their powers would
[22:49:29] <@Discord> weaken...and so would their corruption. Even after all they had been through, the alicorns who remained hoped to cure their brethern and perhaps they could have." Discord turns the final page of this tome, showing the ragged group of alicorns who remained winging back towards their homes...to find chaos. Chaos the likes of which is disturbingly familiar to
[22:50:58] <@Discord> the listeners. "Not that they got the chance...the alicorns were too few to stop me by then, if they ever had the numbers to begin with. They tried to fight back and they managed extraordinary things but...well..." Discord grins wickedly, "History is plain that /I/ won...and with the alicorns gone, the changelings were mostly forgotten...they creeped back
[22:52:12] <@Discord> into Equestria in time to stave off the hives' hunger...and the rest is a story for another time." The story fades as the book is closed, the fire dimming to cast the room around the listeners into darkness...No light except for the reflection of light off insectile green eyes and black carapaces, no sound but the buzz of bug wings and the hiss of changlings

[22:54:54] Discord waves his lion paw dismissively, "To you it's the battles...to me, it's still the first. Still not important. you wanted to know the origin of the changelings and you have it!"



I should stop naming things after ponies.

Particularly, my game of Crusader Kings II, and the incestuous murderparty that is the House of Celestia. King Blueblood IV of Rus has smothered/stabbed/thrown into a hellpit four of his own children (all named Blueblood) out of petty vengeance and to make sure he can leave the kingdom to Princess Luna.
Oh gosh... That reminds me of the NetHack game I played where I only tamed ponies. (For polymorphing, of course.) Letting chat name them was a mistake for, though having Scootaloo the orange dragon accompany me through most of the game was pretty neat, (Spoilered because it caused some people actual distress in the chat)when Fluttershy the umber hulk was electrocuted to death while attacking an energy vortex and her corpse eaten by Big Macintosh in dragon form, it kind of put a damper on things. On the other hand, Blueblood going feral was kind of funny. But yeah, naming things after ponies does have a tendency to lead to tragedy.

I finally decided to try Witch Doctor in Diablo 3. Made it female, named her PinkiePie (witch doctor, witchcraft, close enough). I gotta admit, so far the class feels really weak, but flavor-wise, it's gotta be more fun than anything else. Throwing poisonous frogs everywhere and watching em kill stuff is just fun to watch.

I'm terrible at "wasd" movement. Though it gives me an idea for my fic. I was trying to figure out how a unicorn goes about learning a new spell. It seems fitting that Twilight would be so powerful that she could just be "bestowed" the spell, especially coming from Celestia.

That also brings up another thought. How many unicorns can actually learn new spells? So far it seems Twilight is the only one capable (I'm willing to bet Trixie can though). So, if it's only a very select few, then what good are all those books and scrolls in the library? Are there a lot more unicorns like Twilight that we just haven't seen yet?

Well... In "Sonic Rainboom", "The Best Night Ever", and "It's About Time" Twilight is able to cast a spell after reading about it. Some people hold that she learned teleportation by copying Nightmare Moon's. Rarity was apparently able to teach her the gem-finding spell. I'd say there are a number of options.

I'd imagine that most unicorns "figure out" one or two spells related to their cutie mark on their own, and then can if they choose learn other relevant spells fairly easily. And then, I figure, they can learn other stuff, but it takes more effort and concentration, and maybe doesn't work as well. Unicorns such as Twilight and old man Star Swirl, who get reputations as wizards, probably have a much broader range of spells in the "easy" category, but not all of them - notice how much the flutterwing spell took out of Twilight. (As an aside, I wonder who developed that one. Possibly it would have been easier to cast on an earth pony, since that's what I expected from the description...)

The show strongly implies that only a certain type of unicorn can learn so much. See "Boast Busters". Twilight's special talent IS magic, so she can learn all those spells. I guess I can see others learning a couple or so. More like she has a capacity for more spells. Like a higher level caster (yay for D&D reference)

So they learn it through reading the scroll. Makes sense, but in the case of, say, Rarity teaching Twilight to find gems, there is no scroll. I wonder how that works specifically.

Let's Play: Crusader Ponies II

The days were dark in Ireland. The country was in anarchy. Civil war was rife. And somehow this son of a Diamond Dog had wound up as Earl of Desmond

http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/1708/2012072900001.jpg

He was a pretty man, a fop, and possibly a homosexual. He was also the sole heir to the House of Celestia, which claimed direct descent from the Princess of Equestria herself. His vassals were not enthusiastic about his chances. His eyebrow was perpetually raised and his lip eternally smirking.

http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/4637/2012072900003.jpg

For a man who was frequently accused of being more than a little gay, Earl - now Duke - Blueblood had an awful lot of children. His firstborn was Princess Luna, who became the deadliest warrior in Ireland. Sadly, she was not particularly fertile and her line died out.

http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/2035/2012072900005.jpg

Blueblood II learned the value of buying friends with money.

http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/3205/2012072900006.jpg

Blueblood I managed to unite Ireland, and his third daughter - Twilight Sparkle - became a dedicated scholar of the church. She married a Russian king and was not seen again on the fair shores of Ireland.

http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/7440/2012072900007.jpg

Princess Rainbow Dash, while a devastating warrior, tragically died of plague just like everyone else in the Middle Ages.

http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/1668/2012072900009.jpg

Princess Fluttershy was a wrothful sadist, without fear of any beast great or small. She was married to a minor prince in the Holy Roman Empire and somehow wound up as Kaiserin, leading the largest nation in Europe to bloody victory.

http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/174/2012072900008.jpg

King Blueblood II inherited his father's smirk. He was an unremarkable man who would oversee some remarkable changes to his nation.

http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/1530/2012072900011.jpg

The Crusades went well for Blueblood II, and he assisted in the capture of Jerusalem. He also had a million billion children, who would proceed to kill each other in an orgy of death to claim the throne. Only the last two of his children depicted would live to see the end of his reign.

http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/9800/2012072900013.jpg

Due to some diabolical political finangiling, Blueblood III managed to claim the kingdoms of Aragon and Scotland, and marry the Queen of France and thereby ensuring that his son, Blueblood IV would be the next in line. The heir to Ireland, Aragon and Scotland was Princess Pinkamina Diane Celestia, who was a genius and possibly the most amazing person on the entire planet. Her reign promised to be a spectacular one.


What was next for the House of Celestia? Only time would tell.

The show strongly implies that only a certain type of unicorn can learn so much. See "Boast Busters".

This doesn't counter my point. Magical study, like any study, is about aptitudes. All unicorns have the necessary functions - a horn, some form of energy to expend, and a mind to shape the effect. Just like most humans have eyes to read, books to study and a mind to store. Some people his don't grok higher math. Some are mentally retarded or unable to process it. Some just haven't trained up their aptitudes - I know that when I first true to understand how a circuit works I ended up despairing at not bein able to understand their engineer's voodoo. Now it makes perfect sense because I put a little effort into the underlying principles instead of talking it cold (ten years of time also helps :smalltongue:)

Twilight certainly has the necessary aptitude to be an excellent Mage, using principles from one spell to inform similar energy uses and expenditures in different spells. And not straining on that extended duration flight when feather fall will do.

In D&D, anyone can learn spells. Anyone can scribe them (conditionally; casting stat may affect ability to write down as opposed to use), but only a wizard can cast those spells. And a wizard with more aptitude for his profession can cast more, of a higher level, and with greater potency. But nothing stops a fighter from reading a spellboom and scribing it in his own words.

Is that more clear? I'm worried that by phrasing an agreement as a counter statement I'll send you off in the wrong direction.



So they learn it through reading the scroll. Makes sense, but in the case of, say, Rarity teaching Twilight to find gems, there is no scroll. I wonder how that works specifically.

It seemed at the time that she asked Rarity about what she did and experienced, an then cross/referenced that data with available magic texts. To use a boxing example;

"Why are you punching like that?"
"Well, it's a little slower but a lot stronger."
"Why not a straight in punch? That makes the most sense, physics wise."
"Nah, gloves are too squishy."

Later

"Oh, I see. The gloves drastically increase the surface area spreading out te impact. The rounder travel of the fist not only uses the edge of the glove like a wedge to concentrate the force, but also use centrifugal force to make the glove's weight work or you!"
And then Twilight 'knew' how to find gems, even though she had never done it before. All she had left was to try and hope she had the necessary fitness and skill to pull it off cold.

Some just haven't trained up their aptitudes - I know that when I first true to understand how a circuit works I ended up despairing at not bein able to understand their engineer's voodoo. Now it makes perfect sense because I put a little effort into the underlying principles instead of talking it cold (ten years of time also helps :smalltongue:)

Twilight certainly has the necessary aptitude to be an excellent Mage, using principles from one spell to inform similar energy uses and expenditures in different spells. And not straining on that extended duration flight when feather fall will do.

In D&D, anyone can learn spells. Anyone can scribe them (conditionally; casting stat may affect ability to write down as opposed to use), but only a wizard can cast those spells. And a wizard with more aptitude for his profession can cast more, of a higher level, and with greater potency. But nothing stops a fighter from reading a spellboom and scribing it in his own words.


It's all clear, but my point is that the show doesn't have anything that proves that unicorns have that capacity to learn. Unless their special talent specifically calls for it. Trixie's knows more because her talent is being a showman (I guess, we still don't really know). Outside telekinesis (which they seem to learn even before getting their cutie mark), no one on the show seems to show a talent for actively learning new spells. The only other example I can think of is Snails using a spell that creates a light in the cave with the Ursa Major. Simple cantrips, or prestidigitation, may be natural to all unicorns, but that's it, at least in the context of the show so far.

Simple cantrips, or prestidigitation, may be natural to all unicorns, but that's it, at least in the context of the show so far.

That's not quite true though, the example in question being Rarity. She knows, at least, three different spells. Only one of which is directly related to her Cutie Mark, which is finding gemstones. The other two is the direct fusion of cloth together into a single coherent whole (not used often though) and she actually proved capable of producing illusions, music, and light in Suited for Success for her own fashion show...for the record and simplicity's sake, I'm lumping the illusions, music, and light together as a single spell cause...it very well could be. I doubt Rarity just 'knew' all three, I'm betting she learned how to do the second two because they'd be of immense help to her in both her chosen pursuit in life and future career choice. This would suggest that Starry is correct, to an extent. I'm Rarity could learn more spells of a particular variety, but I don't think she could...make a forcefield, teleport, or cast the Want-It-Need-It spell/dispel the Want-It-Need-It spell.

To put it in D&D terms, the vast majority of unicorns are Super-Specialists...they give up access to something like five or six of the eight schools of magic (not counting Universal) in exchange for super-proficiency in the two they still have access too (the ease in which Rarity finds gem, Shining Armor creating his Canterlot Shield, etc.). Twilight, on the other hand, is the generalist. She can perform all kinds of magic...but she's not quite as good at it as regular unicorns. Her shield could barely envelop the Mane Six when first used and only became able to encompass the library. She strained to find gems when looking for Rarity, etc. However...she can learn those spells in the first place and some spells aside from which. More importantly...not every unicorn studies magic. It's simply not a priority to them, once they figure out telekinesis and perhaps That One Spell that relates to their Cutie Mark, they go on to live relatively ordinary lives because they don't need to know a lot of magic. Twilight isn't unique in that regard, but she is unusual.

...I always figured that the magic schools are actually a hold-over from the Hearth's Warming Eve time period, where the ponies were seperated into their distinct tribes and the unicorns had to raise the sun and moon on their own. Each unicorn needed to be able to help with that and, since none of the tribes were co-operating, be able to help with other tasks to keep the unicorn kingdom running. With the appearance of Celestia and Luna to do those tasks, plus the unification of the tribes, unicorns haven't needed that level of magic on a day to day magic and so they don't study, train, and learn for it, they just learn what they 'need' to learn while some (like Twilight) go on further to become 'wizards'...but I really doubt that Twilight would compare to...well...Star-Swirl the Bearded in magic, except possibly in variety and new spells. A product of the different worlds they were born into.

Simple cantrips, or prestidigitation, may be natural to all unicorns, but that's it, at least in the context of the show so far.

Point of order: There are books of spells in Twilight's library. (See, for instance, The Art of Invisibility Spells, mentioned in "It's About Time") At least one unicorn has specifically learned at least two spells from such books. (Flutterwings and cloudwalking) It is, therefore, plausible to assume that the books are there, in the library of Ponyville, a town associated with earth ponies, so that the unicorns that are there can learn spells. Further, the Star Swirl the Bearded wing of the Canterlot archives specifically stores time spells. It is ridiculous to store things that cannot be used, unless they present a danger to the populace such as nuclear waste does (unlikely in this case, given the observed security and distance). Thus, it is exceedingly likely that unicorns do, indeed, "have that capacity to learn."

Let's Play: Crusader Ponies II

The days were dark in Ireland. The country was in anarchy. Civil war was rife. And somehow this son of a Diamond Dog had wound up as Earl of Desmond

http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/1708/2012072900001.jpg

He was a pretty man, a fop, and possibly a homosexual. He was also the sole heir to the House of Celestia, which claimed direct descent from the Princess of Equestria herself. His vassals were not enthusiastic about his chances. His eyebrow was perpetually raised and his lip eternally smirking.

http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/4637/2012072900003.jpg

For a man who was frequently accused of being more than a little gay, Earl - now Duke - Blueblood had an awful lot of children. His firstborn was Princess Luna, who became the deadliest warrior in Ireland. Sadly, she was not particularly fertile and her line died out.

http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/2035/2012072900005.jpg

Blueblood II learned the value of buying friends with money.

http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/3205/2012072900006.jpg

Blueblood I managed to unite Ireland, and his third daughter - Twilight Sparkle - became a dedicated scholar of the church. She married a Russian king and was not seen again on the fair shores of Ireland.

http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/7440/2012072900007.jpg

Princess Rainbow Dash, while a devastating warrior, tragically died of plague just like everyone else in the Middle Ages.

http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/1668/2012072900009.jpg

Princess Fluttershy was a wrothful sadist, without fear of any beast great or small. She was married to a minor prince in the Holy Roman Empire and somehow wound up as Kaiserin, leading the largest nation in Europe to bloody victory.

http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/174/2012072900008.jpg

King Blueblood II inherited his father's smirk. He was an unremarkable man who would oversee some remarkable changes to his nation.

http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/1530/2012072900011.jpg

The Crusades went well for Blueblood II, and he assisted in the capture of Jerusalem. He also had a million billion children, who would proceed to kill each other in an orgy of death to claim the throne. Only the last two of his children depicted would live to see the end of his reign.

http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/9800/2012072900013.jpg

Due to some diabolical political finangiling, Blueblood III managed to claim the kingdoms of Aragon and Scotland, and marry the Queen of France and thereby ensuring that his son, Blueblood IV would be the next in line. The heir to Ireland, Aragon and Scotland was Princess Pinkamina Diane Celestia, who was a genius and possibly the most amazing person on the entire planet. Her reign promised to be a spectacular one.


What was next for the House of Celestia? Only time would tell.

.....I might just buy this game simply to do horrible, horrible things with. The line of Mis Amore De Cadanza, anyone?

It was enjoyable and I think I'll start to do Let's Play stuff once I play around with recording a bit more.

First, I've got to record and post the rest of Patapony. Then I'm going to figure out my microphone and quality and all that.
Which leads me to my next point, I've found I enjoy games more if I can talk about it with a friend. I'm going to throw this offer on the table that any body who wants to, can join me either playing (if multi-player) or commentating if not. Still need to test my computer and all that, but I'm pretty sure it can handle recording most games.

I'm not sure about commentating, but I will consider it. It's always fun playing games with people, and non-Brits keep complementing me on my accent... buuuuuuut being recorded puts my paranoia up to maximum levels. Stage fright, y'see?

Imagine how I feel about starting this, a while back I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome that among other things makes it difficult to socialize.

Ok, finished watching Griffon the brush off now:

Gilda is pretty cool :smalltongue:, I've got to say I've several similarities with her, well, except the jerkass behavior.....
And to be honest, I think I didn't find her THAT bad because she was just like the everyone I've meet around :smalltongue:
Also didn't find her that bad, Pinkie's annoying, both there and in the intro, so IMO she had it coming, though making Fluttershy cry was just mean (her roar was fun though :smallbiggrin:), but finding out Dash was the one that set up the pranks was kinda surprising, buut not as much after it was revealed they weren't for her (Thanks PhantomFox for clarifying :smalltongue:, it's good help since I'm not exactly a good english hearer).... But still, Pinkie's annoying
Besides that, a bit surprised I didn't end up pissed off like I was afraid I would be :smallbiggrin:

anybody got thoughts on them?
....And now that I think of it, is kinda funny that I like the athletic characters, I'm nothing athletic at all :smallbiggrin:

My primary thought is that you should stop misspelling "thought". :smalltongue: Every time you use that word you leave off the second 't'.

I find it interesting that you compare yourself to Gilda and then her to everyone you've been around. I was under the impression that everyone around you was a complete and total jerk, but maybe I've been misreading your previous posts...

I can see where you're coming from with "Pinkie's annoying". I thought so too, but she started to grow on me (or just got less annoying) starting somewhere around the second season.

You should take the personality test http://www.bronyland.com/pony-personality-test/

It's weird to see someone at least somewhat like Gilda. At least Trixie has redemption possibility, and has a chance for depth. Gilda is unlikely to return, and the fans are probably part of the reason.

Trixies episode was a beginning. It suggests numerous potential arcs that could, would, might but probably won't follow on from it. This makes it easy to write fanfiction for her, but would also make it simple to re-introduce her.

Gilda's episode was an ending. The story potential suggested by it revolves much more around how she could have, would have, might have been but probably wasn't before then, when Dash knew her originally. To include her in events after the episode, rather than via flashback, feels more difficult because you have to undo the situation as of the end of the episode, rather than being free to extrapolate from it. To some degree anyway.
This is a part, I think, of why there is less fanfiction for Gilda, but also a much more pertinant reason as to why she's so unlikely to return, rather than the fan reaction as such.

Halfway through, I asked myself: "I'm going to get Pinkie Pie, aren't I?"

And then I did (http://www.bronyland.com/pony-personality-test/?q=NzE3OXw0MTk1NTQ). I might be the most Pinkie that test can give, actually. That is truly ridiculous.

For any that are interested, here is the rest of the Patapony playthrough. Part 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMYuOU1xsrE&feature=youtu.be) and Part 3 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CILnwCF5YRM&feature=youtu.be). Hate how I did in Part 3:smallmad:. I have them in small chunks as that seemed fitting for it, and it was mostly testing out my recording capabilities. Really, I should have had them all in one video but can't change that now.

As far as if people want to co-commentate, anyone know what the best platform for that would be? Skype works in a 1on1 format, but without some sort of paying-ness not anything more. Does Steam handle multiple people, or will I have to go for another program? I am quite frankly clueless in this branch of knowledge.

That's roughly what I was expecting for me, but with Pinkie in place of Applejack. But noooo, we can't have that, can we now? I was not aware that my outgoing streak was so... dominant, especially since every other personality test tells me that I'm introverted (for example, Myers-Briggs INTJ).

Not that I give much stock (on a personal level) to categorizing people into groups, but it does help alleviate my insatiable curiosity about everything.

And I get an excuse to break out the Pinkie emoticons.

I'm Rarity with a three way tie between Applejack, Fluttershy, and Twilight for second. Huh that for sure i'd be Twilight, oh well though I do share traits with all the mane six so the threeway tie comes as no surprise.

I think this one is the most accurate. I got one with almost nothing but FS, but I cheated a bit. The other two have lots of everyone, except Pinkie and Rarity, and is predominantly Rainbow. Which is NOT me.

Any recommendations?

I think the last roundabout was several threads ago though, plenty of distance.

My own results are a consistent mix of Twilight and Applejack, usually with very little or no Fluttershy and Rarity, Rainbow, and Pinkie bits varying by how I feel on a given day.

However, I'm a consistent INTJ, and I have no problem being Princess Celestia based on that pony chart.

Last Saturday I got to RP in a Super Hero style adventure, thus The Great & Powerful Trixie made another appearance! :smallbiggrin:

I'll use a spoiler to keep the post compact:
In this adventure, the biologist that befriended Trixie needed help-- her boss, the dean of Occult studies at the local university, was kidnapped! Trixie saw opportunity to make a big name for herself in the human world here so she accepted the job, teaming up with a nun, an alien wino named Paul, and a pyromaniacal eco terrorist named Jimmy.
This'll end poorly... :smallbiggrin:

The plan was to first break into the dean's office at the university. Jimmy scoffed that Trixie is about as stealthy as a spotlight, to which Trixie agreed because that will be the point! Trixie trotted up to the front of the science building on campus and broke out her magic act: making fire into animal shapes. This wasn't nearly as impressive as the fact there's a Talking Blue Unicorn doing the magic act.
Meanwhile, Jimmy and Paul went into the science building and broke into the Dean's office. They located his most recent research and made copies of his work.

One college student thought the unicorn fire show was staged and attempted to expose the ruse. No, Trixie was quite real. So was the fire. College boy gets burned, cops get called to the scene by reports of a wild animal playing with fire, and the jig is up.
Trixie creates an illusionary duplicate of herself to get caught while she gallops away, meeting up with the others and all escaping detection.

After going through the copies of the dean's research, it appeared he was studying demonic summoning. Never a good thing. The nun believes that the dean wouldn't be trying this on university grounds. Thus, Trixie determines that the team should head to the dean's house next to see if he's been practicing at home.
The team arrives at the dean's house and finds its already being broken into by mysterious people! Trixie leads the charge via backdoor-- shooting magical bolts of lightning! The alien and pyro exchange gunfire with the other intruders and the nun prays we live through this, healing the injuries of the fallen criminals once we subdued them.

Jimmy learns that these intruders are part of a demon-worshipping cult. Trixie finds a hidden message in the bathroom mirror (old trick-- write message with dry soap, then steam up the bathroom) that was an address to a nearby park. Paul finds the dean's hidden stash of Koniak.
Leaving the cultists for the cops to find, the team then races to the park where they find the dean has been captured by that cult and is being forced to summon their demon god. Trixie sets the cult getaway car on fire as the others take down the cultists. The cult flees in one direction while the team rescues the dean and takes him back to the biologist and safety.
Victory for The Great & Powerful Trixie! :smallcool:

A few fun quotes from the adventure--

Biologist: "The kidnapped individual is the Dean of Occult Studies."
Jimmy: "Well, some people might argue that its a science."
Nun: "It IS a science."
Trixie: "Yeah, I was going to say..."
Jimmy: "Well try asking that of someone who studies astrophysics."
Trixie: "What in Tartarus' name is that?"
Jimmy: "Its how the stars work."
Trixie: "That's called Astronomy..."


Trixie: "Will there be guards at this college?"

Hi everypony!

@Digo:

That is an awesome RP. Yep now I am so making a npc for my campaign world like Trixie. I am even tempted on splashing in a touch of Naga The White Serpent from Slayers into Trixie. *cues in Naga's laugh* Yes!

Hope everypony had a super weekend1

Wow.

Sometimes, you learn something about an OC you just didn't know or never thought of.


My favorite number is 8! It's a great number~

Sometimes, you Lear something about an OC you never wanted to.


My favorite pony type is Pegasus, because they're the kinkiest!

I honestly have no idea here that came from. I'm somewhat concerned, actually. Starry, how did you go about deciding that? I mean really, that is just not a thought I would, on my own, have.


I would have no idea how to answer questions like that for the only character I'd consider RP'ing as. I mean, favorite number? Come on....

Good job ponythread. You got me to dream about going to a pony con (not necessarily Bronycon).

Actually, the only really interesting part was these weird nose cover things. They were basically just pieces of fabric that, roughly form-fitting, covered your nose. I have no idea how they stayed on or what the point of them was. There was a pink one on display on a mannequin skull (not a head, a skull) and my immediate thought was "Oh, that would fit perfectly on Bleakbane's enormous nose!" Then one of my friends (who isn't a brony, oddly) was on the other side of it responded "I know, right?".

It was a little surreal.

Yeah it was fun, I've finished it now and just waiting for the processing to finish for youtube.

Imagine how I feel about starting this, a while back I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome that among other things makes it difficult to socialize. I don't like the idea of a disorder having control of my life so I've pushed my boundries. I started by trying to stay an active member here, and now I'm pushing them again by following what I believe to be a logical extension.
I see. Alright, well, let me know the next time you plan one of these and see if I'm up for it. Not guaranteeing anything, partially because it depends on the game, mostly because I am a complete wuss who may back out if panicked. ^^:

I think he might have simply given up if someone came into his office and said, "Well, yesterday I had a dream in which a kissed a small blue winged equine with rainbow hair based on a figure from one of my little sisters toy sets. And I liked it."

I kissed a small blue winged equine with rainbow hair based on a figure from one of my little sisters toy sets. just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girlpony and I liked it
I liked it

This from the guy who writes stories about brain-slugs and tar-ponies. I don't think we've even tapped the full weird-potential of ponythread.

In other news, I finally started reading Fallout: Equestria. And I bloody love it. Never played, read, or seen Fallout--as you might guess, I don't even know what it is apart from nuclear bad stuff resultant from an explosion. But, I don't care. This stuff is addictive.

There is not much a canon you need to know from fallout beyond:
One: People went into vaults to hide, most of them did not work.
Two: In the year 2070(ish) we revert back to space-age America as far as technological appearance.
Four, no that's not right... Three: Pipboys are awesome
And Four: Radiation has mutated many creatures into more dangerous forms of themselves.
That's basically Fallout in a nutshell.

After you finish, others that you may want to look into include but are not limited to:

Pink Eyes, a humor based story that lamp-shades the gore that goes hand in hand with Fallout.
Project Horizons, This long story (even more so than the base) takes the grimdark from the first story and feed it to 'Cupcakes' to make an even more horrifying story. This gets evened out with humor in between events.
The Daily Unlife, a story that takes place through the eyes of a ghoul and tackles the "normal" everyday life in the wasteland.
Heroes, while not as popular as other side stories this one as garnered a following. It follows the base story approximately as far as gore and humor levels. It's a personal favorite of mine.

Your mileage may very story to story, that is just my personal experience with them.

Bah, that's what trains are for.

No seriously I went to college with people who came from places several states over who actually did have that attitude. Apparently passenger trains still exist!

They do exist. Outside the United States they're even high-quality and convenient!

That song has been done in PMV basically forever, I'm surprised it took this long for someone to mess with the lyrics.

On the other hand, I'm not much for the whole making out with ponies concept. I mean, whatever anypony else wants to do, that's your business, but it seems not particularly in keeping with the nature and theme of the show to me. Making out with someone wearing a pony shirt on the other hand...

I chose it because it's a pithy summary of a lot of stuff that's being going through my head lately. Simple truths usually hide oversimplifications and hidden assumptions that obscure the nature of that which they describe. They are either more complex than they seem, or less true. It doesn't mean that complex truth cannot be encapsulated in a simple statement, it warns of the difficulty of the task.

Philosophy aside, a simple truth stating that truth is rarely simple is a delightfully not-entirely-self-contradicting construction and I find that aesthetically pleasing in it's own right. A verbal Escher painting* of sorts.

You're just jealous.

But yeah, there is a lot of interesting things going on there. I don't like Freud, but he may have had some enlightened notions every now and again.
[Warning - Contains Freud]

Freud: "Repeated dreams of kissing ze Rainbow Pony? Ze Rainbow Pony is carefree and strong, is not bothered by societies views on her behavior, yet knows that she has friends she can rely upon and in turn is unflinching in her dedication to them. In zis dream, you express your wish to become more like her, to take her positive qualities into yourself and become strong like Rainbow Dash.
So, clearly, you want to sleep with your mother."



"Well, yesterday I was overcome with envy because my friend had a dream in which he kissed a small blue winged ecetera."

How do you psychoanalyse that?

[More Freud]
Freud: "You are overcome with longing, not so much for the situation as for the power of your friends subconcious mind. His repeated summonings of this fanciful blue creature seem to come without effort on his part, whereas perhaps you feel that you would have to labor exhaustively to dredge such things from your own mind.
So, clearly you want to sleep with your mother."

Freud: "What? I miss mine mummy. Stop looking at me like zat."




Another reminder folks, colts, and gentlecolts, that my inexplicable days off start right now, so if you got ideas for tumblr answers that you don't want to draw yourself, speak'em'on'up.

Some bronies wanna play that hard role
And tell you that a pony ain't gold
So they toss it and leave it
And I pull up quick to retrieve it
So Cosmo says you're a beast
Well I ain't down with that
Cuz your wings are hot and your hooves are kickin
And I'm thinkin bout stickin
To the beanpole dames in the magazines

"Well, yesterday I was overcome with envy because my friend had a dream in which he kissed a small blue winged ecetera."

How do you psychoanalyse that?
You see your friend throughly enjoying a show typically considered non-(your age group) and find yourself jealous of his enjoyment. Perhaps it is jealousy at his ability to enjoy something so simple, or the fact that he can get so into a single topic, or just jealousy at his being accepted into a group despite what would be considered his "non-manly" entertainment.

I would recommend taking a good look at your envy and what exactly is causing it. Simply joining into the fandom that your friend is in may not be immediately recommended, as you may be envious of his enjoyment rather than what he is enjoying. Remember that it is your friend's enjoyment, rather than your friend himself, that you are jealous of - do not take such resentment against his enjoyment against your friend yourself.

(or just ask someone with an actual degree in such things :smalltongue:)

Plus, they're seen together in Hearts and Hooves Day. In my mind, this is now canon.
"Derpy" doesn't have a last name, and so this isn't any more accurate than saying Fluttershy is married to Big Mac because her full name is "Fluttershy MacIntosh".

...and if you are implying that Ditzy/Doctor aren't married, then that brings up all kinds of awkward implications.


Huh, that dude is getting around! Or just getting really popular suddenly.
"Once you try horn, everything else is forlorn"?
Given that his cutie mark ability is apparently having an exceptionally sharp horn, I hope you're implying something else with this.


You are over a year late. (http://youtu.be/2C0JAoUxyJU) This exists, and has for a while.

Hey, guys. I feel like writing a thing. Prompt me?

Preferably something that lends itself to light/happy/fun fic, and preferably not requiring me to try to get into Pinkie's or Rarity's heads too much.
Woona, Lyra, and Octavia are always nice. You don't need to deal with trying to get into somepony's head with a background pony, so just grab whoever you like and start writing. :smalltongue:

Other than that, Applejack needs more fiction.

Strife: It might be worth putting the active questions up somewhere that's easier to link to, or maybe keeping a link in your sig or something? I found the questions eventually, but it did take me a minute or two.

Sister Conversion Update:

We stopped halfway through Griffon the Brush-Off because she was "ponied out" Her exact words.

She knows portions of the opening theme now, flipped out when she saw Derpy say "Muffins" and enjoys Pinkie's pinkiness.

Oh, she also asked if she was a brony now, I said that she was technically a Pegasister. She went "Blegh, Brony is cooler." :smallbiggrin:

And thus she passes the test.
(Seriously, no one uses Pegasister).

edit: I'd forgotten how impatient I get when sending Tumblr stuff in. Going to have to go distract myself for a while or I'll end up breaking the forum with constant refreshing.

Hello again everyone, I'm back to show you guys a fanfic made by a friend of mine in the mlpforums, it's called The New Sparkle Empire (http://mlpforums.com/topic/25972-the-new-sparkle-empire-my-second-fanfic/) It's a WIP so far & he just got done with Chapter 3, I strongly recommend it :3

Hello again, ponythread! Been a while.
http://img.ponibooru.org/_images/eede1d8f1abe2cf860c902818c54beda/112059%20-%20animated%20pinkie_pie.gif

Speaking of brony conversions, a friend of mine decided to watch the show after asking me about it. She says she likes it, but doesn't get what all the fuss is about. Still, she got through 14 episodes in less than a week, so that's saying something. Perhaps I should introduce her to some fan works?


Fanfics:
Finished Shipping and Handling by PegasusRescueBrigade (including bonus chapters). Well worth reading, and a good ending. A couple of the chapters were... weird, but altogether enjoyable.

Writing is Hard by Eakin: Oh my lord I laughed so much! Everything about this was great. Highly recommended!

Past Lives and Forgotten Sins by Alabenson: An intriguing start. I'm not sure this will be my kind of story, but I am interesting in learning more about what is going on, so you've done a good job drawing me in. Keep it up!

Next on my catch-up list: Words Failed Her by Nonsanity, Show and Spell by maximus25, and Dissertations on Dawn by Raz.

Umm... did you ever take a look at mine (http://www.fimfiction.net/story/18623/Clockwork)? If you don't want to, then that's alright, but hey, it's a fic nonetheless. :smallsmile:

Okay, a couple of Ponythread-Historical Questions that have been bugging me for a while;
What's up with there being multiple Chargers anyway?
Also what was this whole Midnight thing? It's way before my time, but it always struck me as either an important part of Ponythread history or at least the biggest Noodle Incident.

Midnight is an OC created by a ponythreader called "EsperDerek", who was created in a bonus chapter to a Twilight/Trixie fanfic he wrote called Out In The Cold. She was their daughter (Genderbending was involved, and I think Luna might also be one of her parents, it's a long story.) He made a sequel or two to that story starring Midnight. Nowadays he frequents the IRC.

Congrats, now you have someone you can be safely a brony with :smallwink:

....mine just watched like 2 episodes.... Then declared it too girlish for her and started teasing me even worse :smallbiggrin:

I have been planning on working on something to make it easier, it's just that real life got in the way. I'll probably finish it tonight.

Not sure on the Chargers thing, I would guess thanqol would know though.

Gamerlord already covered who midnight is, but here is Esper's Equestria Daily (http://www.equestriadaily.com/search/label/Author%3A%20EsperDerek) page. I've been behind the times, not sure if he has posted anything elsewhere, but this has a good number of his Midnight works at the least.

Indeed, though question: if memory serves, doesn't SiuiS have a large series of Midnight cloning tanks, or is my memory just really wonky?

I vaguely recall some shenanigans related to that during the last Summer of No Pony, so I would lean on "Yes".

That sounds similar to how my wife views the show. She's watched about a dozen episodes and thinks it can be cute, but she sees no fuss about the show nor does she bother with exploring fan works. The one thing she seems to kinda get into is the Hub channel promo song for "Equestian Girls".
Instant earworm to her.
