    I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good...Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too slim. Too ugly or too this or too that....I'm out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world...no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built, I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work.

    It's interesting to see Pinkie by herself. She's usually complementing the rest of the group. She's had alone time before, like in Party of One, but here she's not being crazy, she's going on her own adventure. It's kinda neat.

    purple - Rasberry?
    Blueberries generally aren't blue. I'd put it with purple. Decaisnea fargesii is very bright blue, though, and I hear it's sweet. Green can be kiwi, grape, or pear jelly, and black cherry jelly for indigo, if any of those exist. Mmm, all of those in zap apple jam...

    My Little Pony, is it the only fantasy settings to have African Culture (Zecora), along with Elderscrolls (Redguards are more of an arab than black!) and Diablo 3 (Witch Doctor). We could put in Rich Burlew's New World (Source) as one of them.

    To be fair, Indigo is a Tertiary color that only made it onto the rainbow in the first place because Isaac Newton was convinced the number seven was lucky

    There's plenty of works that portray Africans and their culture, the problem is finding one that isn't also kinda racist. Pre-colonial african history hasn't exactly permeated western culture the way European, Chinese, and even Middle Eastern history has.

    Well, not exactly. She spent the majority of that episode pestering Doodle. Here, she appears to be going out and having an adventure, a real adventure. Now, granted, it's only that short clip, the rest of the episode is probably her and her and her and her and her going nuts. Still though.

I think three chapters to fully set the scene and premise is about right but something needs to happen in the next one. Some... acceleration. The results of the ritual, perhaps, could be an extremely debilitating long-term illness or the beginning of Twilight's mental degeneration rather than just 'wake up fine with a lecture from the Princess'.

    I'm becoming increasingly convinced that this story needs some sort of tag at the start, indicating that this is not ShowTwilight as we see her. As this idea was conceived pre-S2, the whole bit in the Royal Wedding where she outright says, "I had no friends other than my brother" will likely throw some people off. Combined with the point you brought up, I'm going to need to think through the intro/description paragraph VERY carefully.

    Good point/feedback. I had been planning on drawing out the suspense a little more, making the effects a little harder to spot, but you know what? *cracks knuckles* Forget that noise. This story is a tragedy, and it's high time we show it.

    And because there're seven notes in the musical scale. He had five, then added orange and indigo to make the number fit. I'd like the initialism to be ROYGCBV instead, since the blues are such a long band on the spectrum.

Twilight and Pinkie make the "Dexter's Lab" pair where you have the bookish genius confounded by a bright but almost alien intellect.

    Then why Fluttershy and Dash? They don't seem similar enough for their differences to have much weight. I theorize that trying to answer this has lead to the path of least resistance for the community: Shipping.
    I challenge your original assertion! Really we haven't got that much Twilight and Pinkie stuff. Not in comparison to the FlutterDash and Rarity and AJ stuff.

    One, I somewhat look askance on the idea that shipping two ponies is the lowbrow, can't think I anything else solution.

    Two, they are both defined by their insecurities, but one is an extrovert who starves without constant affection while always wondering if it's real or if they all worship the graven image she has carved of herself through lies an daring, and the other worries constantly that all it will take is a slip or a misstep and her friends will stop caring, as she is caught forever in a gilded cage of quiet and demurity.

    Ahhh, thank you.

    EDIT: In comic related news, there will now be a 6 issue mini-series of spin-off comics, each one focusing on one of the mane 6, with Twilight up first. (link contains plot synopsis spoilers for the first issue, and also issue #4 of the main series)
    "Plot synopsis, huh? Well, it's well-rounded. I mean, it's solid all around, the kinda tail you can sink your teeth into."

    "You mean 'tale', right? Because they mean the story."

    "Whhhyyyy yeeees. Story."

    "..."

    "What did yooou think I meant?"

    This throws me for a loop though. I thought that RYB was for pigment and RGB was for light? This gives me the impression that common wisdom on the subject isn't an equal and separate set of parameters, it's just wrong.

    There's plenty of works that portray Africans and their culture, the problem is finding one that isn't also kinda racist. Pre-colonial african history hasn't exactly permeated western culture the way European, Chinese, and even Middle Eastern history has.
    Heck, pony fandom was one of them. How many cannibalism because Africa and Watermelon because hurr hurr did we get early on?

    And because there're seven notes in the musical scale. He had five, then added orange and indigo to make the number fit. I'd like the initialism to be ROYGCBV instead, since the blues are such a long band on the spectrum.
    I was under the impression it wasn't lucky or whatnot, but a belief in the divine nature of numerology. They went with seven because it was holier.

    If you mean in the series, Playing Twilight off Pinkie is pretty common... like... it starts at "it was under 'E'" to all of season two and continuing on.


    edit- RYB is a holdout from back before things were really understood. It's mostly sticking around as a cultural artifact, kind of like how silly imperial measure is

    Seriously, they even name check Monkey Island!

    Oh, sorry, it's NOT EVEN a tertiary color. My point being that Newton included it for superstitious reasons either way.

    I'm sure plenty of bronies are also racists. I don't think that makes Zecora, as portrayed in show, a racist interpretation of African culture. She's got the 'foreign' thing going, but that's mostly because she rhymes everything. Beyond that (outside of her intro episode) I can't think of any time she's been portrayed as a negative influence, OR as magically solving everything in a swoop. She contributes to the solution more than once, but she's never solely responsible for fixing everything with foreign magic.

    With the number of times you've posted here, and if you've watched the show, I'd say that having three real-life bronies come out around you is an absolutely GOLDEN opportunity. Broach the topic! Make conversation! Might not be 100% comfortable but it's a phenomenal chance to make some new friends.

    There was the kiss scene, however accidental that woul he. And also all the heavily implied relationship stuff. But yeah, discounting that...

    But pigment does work via RYB, and not so much RGB. I've tried. many a fimo clay was lost that day. So I don't think it's solely an artefact. But I've Ben wrong before.

    I know. That's why I specified the fandom. I don't remember why, though.

    This. Seriously. It reminds me of that pseudo-parable. "Why didn't you save me from the flood?" "I sent a man, a boat and a helicopter. Why didn't you accept my help?"

    No, he's been around for a while. He is just worried about the eventual ramifications of actually giving in and allowing himself to like the show. I think he just sticks aroun for the hugs and well-wishing at this point.

    If you're latching onto a fandom, you're doing it wrong. If you like this particular TV show about technicolor ponies, then don't avoid talking to people about it because you're afraid they'll think of you as 'one of those fans.' If you aren't comfortable talking to all three at once pick one or two of them and approach them separately.

    You can like ponies and not be a brony. Don't ever let fear of being associated with some of the more... exuberant... elements of the fandom stop you from saying that you like a thing.

    Don't know whether it's fear or whatever. I've just never been able to form close associations with much of anything. Tried but maybe I'm going about it in the wrong way. Though I don't think I should be posting this here as it is not on topic and therefore probably wasting forum space.
