From what I understand, it is because the fandom is believing and making things not explicitly stated in the canon of the show.

It gets really old after awhile…

Anyway, bedtime. There are ponies tomorrow after all! Night!

You know what, I haven’t got to use this yet so here goes.



Anyways, I haven’t seen much of the Colgate art recently, seems to be dying off.

Holy shit Fridge that picture. Did you insert the entire catalouge of the beatles into it or something? Why is it causing my computer to lag so much.

Yes, DPF. That picture contains not only the entire catalogue of the Beatles, but also the complete works of Pink Floyd and Radiohead, Tolstoy’s War and Peace in its original entirity, and the first season of Community.

@Gigatoast: You are making assumptions, my fine brony. That is merely a picture of Three ponies who may or may not be of blood relation. nothing to get in a tiff about.

Here, have a FaustDerpy

True fact: Actually caring about headcanons enough to rage (or god forbid, post on Pony Confessions) is very silly indeed. I assumed Giga’s post was more light hearted and serious but that may not actually be the case. Shrug.

Here, have a cute pic.

The quoted post has been deleted.

The thing is though, there are memes within the fandom that might need documentation. Sure, they’re usually popular for only a short while, but they usually resurface, and we as meme researchers owe it to ourselves and the internet to make note of them.

Also, I’ve warmed up to the canon depiction of Princess Luna. While before she was treated as a maladjusted, damaged, fragile pony with no backbone, she has now been updated as a strong female figure in line with the feminist undertones of the show, which I personally approve of.
Although I do have to say, the Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe is just stupid, and I’d like to see it done away with.

Dude, calm down. Seriously.
Why do you hate the idea of Derpy being a loving mother so much anyways?
Not trying to sound like an ass (if it does sound like that). I’m just asking.

I used to really hate it when they said Dinky was her offspring, since literally the only connection between them is a similar color scheme. But that still made more sense then bucking “Sparkler”!

The only reason anyone slapped her with another kid is to preserve their precious Derpy/Dinky fanon after it got carpet-bombed by “Sisterhooves Social”. Besides, “Sparkler” is at least as old as Derpy, if she was her daughter Derpy would have to look like Ms. Cake or Rarity’s mom.

Some people are willing to go to any lengths to preserve their fanon, even if it means making it completely laughable in the process. Ya gotta learn to let it go sometimes people! Otherwise you turn into the Sonic fandom.

(PS: Don’t tell anyone, but I tend to exaggerate some of my reactions to things I find stupid in the fandom. Gotta keep up appearances you know.)

Yeah, that deleted post was mine.

It’s true that the popular memes deserve documentation. But not freaking everything is a meme. I just hate how some bronies think that sometimes. The title “meme” is then given to something that doesn’t deserve it. Scootaloo is a Dodo didn’t even survive a day of popularity. Yet people still claimed it a meme. If we’re gonna start like that, we might as well make every popular subject on 4chan threads a meme.

Just because a fandom is popular and gets a lot of attention, doesn’t mean everything it creates is automatically a meme.

X is a Meme is now a Meme.

That synchtube was fun. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and I hope you enjoyed the company of my friend. I told him to be on his best behavior.

Edit: @Verbose: I think you and Burning_Phoneix would get along with my friend very well. He also enjoys intellectual conversations. He’s studying anthropology.

Yeah, he seemed to be a cool guy. I know we vary on what we like outside of ponies, but maybe we should consider finding brief episodes to break up the monopony (is it a pun of monopoly or monotony? Who knows…) of our SynchTubes. Magneto and Magneto (especially Magneto) were awesome.


Image for no reason.

I hope to see it again if we ever get more of Pinkie’s story.

And lol at Master Angel. And sneaky AJ.

Slightly off topic (if there is one):

This is what sucks about losing internet at my house, I can only post from a friends place which I cant do that often

That means when my internet gets fixed I am going to have plenty of reading to catch up on. I imagine this thread will reach page 25 by the time I get back.

Wish me luck boys. Might be able to log in one more time before I leave my mates place tomorrow (I’m staying over just so I have a chance to watch the new episode in the morning) but if not: See you in several dozen more pages.


Resume posting ponies.

lolwutever…
But really, what is there to prove relation other than color scheme or stated relation in the show?
There wasn’t anything saying that Derpy still wasn’t her mom. The Sisterhooves Social appeared to be very lax on what pair could participate.



Click it. It’s not NSFW.

Dad keeps getting up earlier and earlier every week. I swear he knows I’m a brony and is just trolling me now.
I don’t really want to watch a stream, either, because my laptop often lags at them and I hate their low quality.
Meh.
On another note, to anyone who can’t watch the episode today (for similar reasons to mine), put the Hub on your TV, but turn just the TV off and not the cable box. You’ll still be considered “watching” it (since the cable box is on), and nobody will notice you’re doing so. This’ll make sure Hub knows people are watching ponies.

Please do this if you have a cable box. Higher ratings mean our show gets to be on TV longer!

Are you sure that will do anything. I was under the impression that a few households were selected for monitoring by ratings companies then averaged, so only people who are being monitored actually matter.

I ought to go check if Dish gave me my HUB back.

It is pony time!

I’m pretty sure it will. I’m not an expert on TV ratings, but I imagine leaving the cable box on should work.

I hope train Derpy isn’t the only Derpy we see today.

Why are there so many forms of transportation to get to Canterlot?


Oh god, were those ice dragons, or Discord clones? DO WANT moar Discord.


Is ponibooru down for anyone else?

Damn, I’m waiting for Discord in this episode

And anyone seen Derpy onstage?
__________________________________________________________________________________

Ponies founded EARTH?!?!?

Yes, obvious Derpy is best Derpy.

There are weird snow horses causing blizzards everywhere. I like the theory that Celestia caused the snow storm to make the ponies build Her a capital city.


But BUT!!! How did they get an alicorn banner? I thought the princesses weren’t born(?) yet or something.!!?!!!?!??!

Yay continuity of Starswirl the Bearded!


In other news… Just two more edits until my fic’s first chapter is done! Aquí

Last edited Dec 17, 2011 at 10:34AM EST

What they did not mentioned is where the Alicorns came from or how they got into power. :/
I guess the showing of all three tribes working together some how created two magnificent Alicorns from that magic heart I guess.
How ever I am happy there was more Pinkie Pie and the rolled she played as was great, I say she was kind of trolling in this episode I may say myself.

MOAR fanfics are coming.

That didn’t fuck up too much of the fanon. All we know is that pegasi are belligerent and that there was a time even before Discord. (Power went from Discord to the Sisters directly so this must be even before then.

Dat episode…

Spoilers ahead

I thought that was one of the best they’ve done so far. The only thing I didn’t like was the lack of an explanation for Luna and Celestia. They were on the flag at the end, but apparently didn’t even exist yet (or at least didn’t do their jobs). lolwut?

Apart from that, it was great. I really liked the backstory, and I loved the way it was presented in the show. I really wasn’t expecting the episode to play out the way it did, with the mane 6 becoming the founding characters instead of just acting like them. I give it 9/10.

I can’t wait for the artists to make their interpretations of the real founders. This fandom is about to get a whole lot more interesting.

Last edited Dec 17, 2011 at 10:40AM EST

Here’s my ideas, yay.

Founding of Equestria
some time later
DISCORD takes over.
misery…
The alicorns show up and imprison Discord and free everypony from texture errors and pranks.
alicorns become everypony’s princesses
some time later
Nightmare Moon
1000 years later
My little pony, my little pony, aaah aaaah aaaah aaaaaaah

THEORY

The Windogos is actually a nuclear winter caused when humanity wiped itself out in Nuclear war and mutated horses into the ponies we know today. They used their magic to undo the destruction of mankind and live in peace with nature….

Then some other Alien race (The Goa’uld) came along and enslaved the ponies by becoming their gods.

@Dr. Gregory Horse The Prototype
So the Equestria of today is the future?!?!?

Hum, not exactly. I believe it would be something like our historical eras, for instance:

Pre-Classical Era: – Division and fight between the three pony tribes

Classical Era: – Founding of Equestria marks the beggining of Classical Pony Era

Medieval Era: – Discord takes control and becomes the new ruler

Modern Era: – Luna and Celestia’s rise against Discord marks the beggining of this era and Alicorns are the new rulers

Rest of Modern and the Contemporary Era – Equestria as we know now

That episode was so awesome I can’t even put into words. Like, wow. I am in awe of the writers for absolutely magnificent that was. Maybe we’ll get a sequel next year with more backstory? That would be even more awesome.

Plus Derpy gets some recognition on the Hub page? That’s legit man.

P.S. Pinkie Pie was amazing in this episode. I was dying from laughter. Like, I got myself a workout just trying to keep from falling out of the chair. :P


ALSO, IDEA GET. What if the banner had Celestia and Luna on it because there was some sort of prophecy about them or something?? That would make a lot more sense.
