MLP: FiM discussion thread

Welcome to the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic discussion thread!

All discussions for the best show in the history of shows will go here. The Images with overloads of ponies thread will become an image-centric thread. Furthermore, IC Pony Streams (ICPS) scheduling and discussion will soon have its own thread, to make tracking of those even easier. This will hopefully make things easier to follow.

Anyways, we join our regularly scheduled programming already in progress:

My little experiment is working.

Remember when I made that 30 seconds of Squee video a month or so back? The community has discovered it, and it's growing exponentially. I checked it right before going to bed last night, and this morning I found it had gained 700+ views overnight. It's surging popularity has prompted YouTube to ask if I want to monetize the video. This is hilarious.

Oh hey, now over 75 thousand views and climbing.

    Still looking for dat Rainbow Dash, Norm.

    Yeah so I'm about to post a Ponychan link. Deal with it. I don't go there, so I don't know how long threads stay active (on the internet hate machine, they only last a few hours typically). This thread has been alive for many days though, so whatever.

    I dare you to go through the entire thing with dry eyes. You won't make it. I read the whole thing. I lasted, like, 20 posts.

    Having read that, I steeled myself and dove in. Eyes were physically dry till about the 18th actual sad post. I stopped looking after the "Banishment? What would give you that idea?" 2 panel comic.

    Fluttershy at Midwest Furfest. She was at Youmacon but I didn't have my camera and my phone was dead. Glad I ran into her here!
    While I normally find fursuits in general to be a bit creepy, I'm okay with this. I mean, it is the best pony, so...

    Wait, you're at MFF, Señor Meph? I'll be there soon myself to hook up with some friends I haven't seen in a while. Gotta love the nerd conventions.

    I saw in the con programming that there was a Brony meetup at 4pm today. You know that MLP: FiM coloring book I brought to Oktoberfest that everyone was doodling in? I'll be bringing that with me with those crayons. It should be a riot. Hope to see you there if you can make it.

    After it's filled with mindless retardation awesome and win, I'll be scanning and uploading them to a gallery of some sort (with Icrontic separated from the rest), and posting the most hilarious and/or offensive ones here. Spoiler alert: some ponies will have Capri Sun.

    Yes, bronies at a furry convention. Deal with it.

    Synopsis below:

    Spoiler:
    It's a short story about Spike growing old, long outlasting the lives of his six friends, with only a faded photograph to remind him. He dies at the end of it, and rejoins his friends in the afterlife. Sad pic to boot


    So I'm thinking a pony stream next week on Tuesday to watch the two new episodes. So if you feel like saving them, that'll be the timeline.

    Eh, it's just gonna be relatives and I'm not sure how late we're gonna be doing stuff, I'd say I'd probably be able to jump in at 10, but that's just an estimate. Me getting in earlier is entirely possible, so whenever is fine by me.

    I'm kinda hoping this next Rainbow Dash episode coming up next week adds some more character development for her. She gets the least character development of the mane six (learning that she able to do more awesome things really doesn't count), and this latest episode did pretty much nothing to bring Dash-haters over to liking her more.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    edited Nov 2011
    Though I haven't seen the new episode yet, I agree with your sentiments. Dash is my favorite, but she's pretty one-dimensional so far. You really only see her delve into new characteristics with the first episode, when she gives up the Shadowbolts to help her friends. She's played the same part every other episode, while the other characters have broken mold and become richer characters.

    This is true, but I personally haven't gotten tired of the beat-all, whatever-it-takes attitude.

    Rainbow is also the only pony so far who doesn't have a pet, any chance she'll get one in season 2?

    Believe me, I haven't either.

    She's a pony with a lot of heart, but also with her own well-walled insecurities.

    Honestly? They really should have her take Scootaloo under her wing. it would do wonders for her character. Having her take on the responsibility of being a role-model/big sister sub would not only give them stuff to work with, but allow Dash to show some heart.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    edited Nov 2011
    She already is a role-model of sorts for Scootaloo, taking on a larger role would, I agree definitely improve on her character.

    BRUSHIES EVERYWHERE WHAT THE HELL!!!
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian

    Agreed. As much as I don't like the CMC, having Scoots attached to Dash would be pretty rad.

    I would love to watch the episodes with you guys! How...(I'm new) How does one go about watching the episodes with you? =3 I've seen the newest one 3 times, oddly enough (I was showing it to different people while watching it myself as it came on). But the fan interaction is another reason I love being a brony so much!! ^^

    Again, I'm new. So forgive me if I'm asking a silly question.
