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.

    Hey, Canti, remember that one time we all played
    that NES pony game, "Story of the Blanks"?
    That was great.

    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.

    Yes, and we're going to be watching it in one of the ballrooms here at the hotel on the main stage sound system. :D

    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 <strike> mindless retardation</strike> 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:
    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.

    Do it Wednesday, and I'll actually be able to participate.

    Hmm.. That might be a good idea. Was worried about losing people to Holiday travel, but if people are around on Wednesday, we can roll with it.

    Oh man, I laughed hard. Well played.

    Actually Wednesday would work for me too, it's the one day I have a semi-stable internet connection around that time of night.

    Fitzkrieg, that video is hilarious.

    What kind of timeframe are you looking at for Wednesday, Cola?

    I truly, truly enjoyed that vid, wasn't expecting the neighing at all.

    I ended up bursting out laughing as soon as it started.

    Also did I hear a mule in there somewhere?

    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.

    Argh. Something came up for me on Wednesday. We'll have to do the stream on Tuesday. Sorry, Nathan.
