    Default My Little Pony XXVIII: In the Crazy of 40.000 Posts, There is Only Pony!




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


    Brief Introduction

    Spoiler
    Show
    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.

    Post it!

    They've probably forgotten all about it.

    Fine then. At the insistence of some others, I present to you all, for reviewing and feedback, Midnight vs the free press:

    Writing Excerpt 1
    Spoiler
    Show
    A loud fiery burp, that was a staple of the houslehold, announced the arrival of the most recently sent mail from the royalty of Canterlot. “This one’s from Luna!” Announced Spike, holding out the letter. Grabbing it with telekinesis, Twilight opened it and began to read, eager to see what had been sent over today. I was sitting at the table in the mini kitchen that was the extent that the library could provide. Looking over, I watched as momma Twilight read the letter. Watching her face slowly go from thrilled, to mildly worried, to out-right horrified was something I would’ve found amusing if it weren’t my own mother. “What’s wrong momma?” I asked. Twilight wordlessly floated the letter over to me.

    Dear Twilight and Midnight:
    I write to you with news most dire. Back when I was still recently banished to the moon, Celestia struck a deal with the griffon kingdom that had several terms and deals, but only one of them is still relevant today. It’s most basic message was “Peace between our kingdoms shall stand as long as the moon is within the sky.” Unfortunately, the current monarch has less enlightened goals then the wise king of old, and has finally managed to get it through their system of red tape and governmental blocking, to make an argument that, ever since the mare in the moon vanished, it’s no longer the same moon in the sky and the deal is null and void. Everyone in Canterlot has been worried for days, but we may have finally figured out a compromise: the current king listens incredibly closely to his grand vizer, who has chosen to take his holidays in ponyville this year. If he has positive things to say about us, then the whole situation might be resolved with minimal effort. The problem is, he’s incredibly stuck-up and apparently says that he will only consort with those “equivalent to a king.” Normally me, or Celly would deal with this, but we’ve got our own massive political melt-down in progress over at the castle. The point of this being, we’ve worked out yet another compromise. He would be willing to talk to you if you were with another pony of the same rank. Very unfortunately, we’ve only got one pony we can spare. On the plus side, you’re familiar with him, on the down-side......It’s Blueblood the second.


    Yours truly, Luna

    P.S.
    As a apology for what I know must be horrible for you, I found a gift for both of you. It’s a small consolation, but all I can do at the moment.

    I dropped the letter in sheer shock. Blueblood the second? But Momma Luna knew of our...Interactions in the past. And what was this “gift” that she wrote about? That’s when another fiery burp lit up the library. “That was a big one.” I remarked dryly, too busy processing having to be in the company of blueblood to notice that the entire library had just been glowing from the most recent message.

    Spike hefted up the most recent arrival, a tome wrapped in brown paper to ensure safe travel. I silently watched Momma Twilight carefully remove the wrapping from the tome and read out the title. “Magiks of the moon.” I was somewhat surprised by Momma Twilight’s following excitement. “Do you know what this is?” she said. Truth be told, I’d seen a couple of references in some of the older books in the library, but I wasn’t about to spoil Momma’s fun, no matter how distraught I was. “No?” I answered weakly. “It’s just about the oldest book on magic there is! This was the defining work from back before nightmare moon! Everyone had assumed it long lost and the knowledge inside gone forever! Do you know what this could mean if it were deciphered?”
    News like that was enough to bring me to my hooves again. Twilight continued, still in librarian mode “Think of all the knowledge this contains!” Opening it reverentially, she leafed through some of the pages. “La Maladie Maledictum, Sillurian Miscellana, Rowen's Saggitarii, l'Grandč č l'Formidablč Eixirt? This is some of the most complex spell-work I’ve ever seen!” Noticing her distraction, I seized the opportunity to get some words in. “I don’t suppose we could try untangling any of this stuff together?” “Of course!” Said Twilight, looking shocked for a moment, “Even if this stuff didn’t require two unicorns working on them, I’d still want you to help! I’ll read through some of this stuff, and see what we can try first, all right?” Before I could reply, Twilight bounded up into her bedroom and closed the door behind her. Despite this, I had to grin. Anything this interesting that made momma that happy had to be good. And maybe the whole Blueblood situation wouldn’t be too bad after all. But first things first.... “I’m going out for my lunch momma!” I said bounding out the door, knowing that there was a certain somepony waiting for me.....




    And somewhere on the other side of ponyville.....




    I sat in my den of knowledge, my cave of news, my... rug of rumors! Imagine, if you will, a plain and simple wall, in a plain and simple newspaper office. Look closer at this wall, You notice a door, “But surely this is but an ordinary door leading to, perhaps, a broom closet?” Is what you might say if you knew not the truth. If you were to enter, you would see the true glory that began as a vision and has been brought to reality. I had notes about every event that has ever happened in Ponyville, all the rumors and gossip on the street pieced together across the room with pins and string functioning as my web of truth. Allowing me to have a giant ball of lies which, if properly tended, some information could be carefully gleamed from.

    My keen reporter’s eye observing all of today’s rumors as I filtered them through. “Prince rumored to be arriving in town?” Preposterous! “Town council receiving mysterious bribes?” Irrelevant! I scanned through looking for some real news. Ah-ha! I found the true piece of news within this all!


    That was when the door was kicked open. “The web of truth! “ I blurted out before realizing who it was. “Hey boss, I found her! She’s taking her lunch break in the broom closet again!” Shouted Snappy Scoops (No relation to the dashingly brilliant Reporter-pony Whadda Scoops) “Well, leave her there until she’s finished then!” Cried back the editor of “Trotter” (INH). “Actually” I said gathering my things “I’ve got a stakeout to partake in.” “Is this one of your famous stake-outs Whadda?” Jeered Snappy. “Like that time you-” “We agreed never to speak of that again!” I yelled out before she could mention the incident. “I have a real piece of news to pursue!” I shouted over my shoulder, while leaving the headquarters behind. Somepony’s been leaving mysterious transcripts at the library! While over my shoulder I could hear them discussing the benefits of keeping somepony who can think in italics.

    Ahh, thread 28. This truly is a semi-miraculous day. Maybe. I haven't decided yet. You hang around for so long, and thread changes become a weekly occurrence, like doing laundry.

So I decided to get you a gift, and by gift I mean I decided to order you a gift! And that involved giving your address to somepony who'd make the delivery. Somepony special, aha. Aha. Ah. Ha."

    No, you're not allowed to know what either of these are for.

    Almost one year ago, Jukashi of Keychain of Creation posted this comic on his Deviantart.

    This directly lead to me clicking the 4chan pony threads. Which lead directly to this.

    It's been a good year.

    There's umm "historical precedent" by the boatload for that, however at present we've seen a lot of ponies in social settings and no instance to my knowledge of cups being held in hooves. We see straws, directly from something on a table, or Celestia with magic.

    Confound these ponies they drive me to drink!

    An informed commentary on one of her designs, a la Fluttershy but in the opposite direction.

    Indeed; that it has.

    Though I did not join the Herd until December, it still feels like a whirlwind year for me, in which there was SO MUCH PONY. Too much, perhaps, though that is like saying one's feast is too rich, that its magnificence leaves one less interested in other matters.

    To another year, and many more to come!

    2. Probably something along the lines of complimenting her artistic creativity, labelling her a genius in the field of design or something like that?

    Really though, just acting like a proper gentlepony would probably impress her given how badly the Gala went for her.

    The Ig Nobel for literature this year went to the inventor of the "Theory of Structured Procrastination," the idea that "to be a high achiever, always work on something important, using it as a way to avoid doing something that's even more important."

    Ponies are important, right? I can get away with that?

    Pinkamena Pie
    Rainbow Dash
    Applejack Of the Apple Clan (Or something along those lines; it's canon she's "part of the apple family" which implies it as a surname of sorts).
    Rarity Belle (Assumed due to her sister, Sweetie Belle).
    I always assumed Sweetie's name was a compound one, like Anna Jean or Jamie Lynn, rather than Belle being her last name. But perhaps that's the southerner in me peeking through.

    I'd like to note that this is the first time we've seen Celestia upset outside of an emergency. "Meet me in the Library." I think Celestia's personal element seems to be Order, since she seemed genuinely upset at all the ruckus going on. That, and it would explain why Discord pisses her off so much. She hates Chaos.
    I find this to be a neat idea...going to keep mulling it over.

    I think Serene is a pretty good descriptor for Celestia most of the time, yeah.

    No, you're not allowed to know what either of these are for.
    Hmm, I think others have answered already but what the hay?

    1.) I think so; at least I can see it being easily within the realm of believability.

    2.) I would say that noticing the little details would be a big way to flatter her, considering how much effort she puts into her appearance and work. Making it clear that you notice and appreciate that would probably be a more subtle way of going about flattering her.

    Ahh, love that new thread smell.

    I have a quick pony-related D&D story...
    Be warned, you may think I'm a terrible person.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Myself and a group of friends regularly use our lunch hours at school to meet in the English room and play a quick D&D battle. No overarching story really, just killing things.

    Anyway, I was flipping through the DMG, to the index page where all monsters are listed by CR. Scrolling down the list, I saw an entry for Pony. 1/4 CR.

    I said, "F**k it, you guys are attacked by a herd of ponies."

    It was 12 ponies vs. four 2nd level characters. I didn't have any pony-esque minis, so I just threw 12 random ones in the middle. A nearby Brony, who wasn't playing, decided to name some of them based on the mini.

    In all, he found minis for AJ, FS, TS, PP, and Derpy. The party won, but AJ nearly killed the party fighter, Derpy was murdered by the Hexblade, the bard stabbed Fluttershy, and Pinkie and the rest escaped.

    When Derpy died, the watching Brony was almost in tears. When Fluttershy was hit, we were crying together.


    I should not have done that.
    I have a band!

    Yes, they can. At the very least, the flat of the hoof and some narratively convenient acrobatics would avoid most all spills.

    Rarity is one, because she of all ponies can take flattery like "you're pretty" or "I was lost in your eyes" and believe the giver, where most ponies would roll their eyes. It's one of her more endearing traits; her sincerity, and seeing sincerity in others.
    In case I'm being obtuse, the joke is "Rarity is a rarity".
