Hahahaha! Ghostbuster our of Friggen nowhere!

Did you add your OC to the pony compilation file? I’m hoping people add themselves to it and re-upload the file to save other people (me) the trouble of updating it.

Actually Dr. Raymond Stantz is a Brony here so I decided to add him in : /

And I’ll get on that.

New Pony Compilation File

( Not sure if it’ll work, if it doesn’t just message me your email for the new file. )

Oh whoops, I didn’t realize it was supposed to be him. Goes to show how unfamiliar I was with his avatar.

This is why labeling the users is a good idea.

[edit]

Thanks Alcaran. I’ll get that once Mediafire picks itself back up again.

I want to make some changes to my own OC so if anyone else want to be thrown into the file, now is good time to speak up as I can fit other people in while I’m still working on myself

The fact that Berry isn’t a hobo on the street is the reason why Equestria is losing so much money being a welfare state.PONIES! YOUR TAXES ARE GOING TO KEEPING THIS BUM HYDRATED!


@Daniel

You’re going to have to do better then that. I check my house for camera’s every week and you can tell it’s shopped because of the pixels I could vote on my own post and from seeing quite a few shops in my time .

I haven’t posted in a long while…I miss the discussions, we hadn’t had one of those for quite sometime, hopefully the new episode will rectify that.
anyway speaking of new episodes:

I can’t believe no-one made a “REEEAAADIIIING RAAAAIIIINNNBOOWW!!!” joke yet.
I am disappoint.

Anyway I’m alive and well it’s just that my uni’s midterms are approaching so forgive me if I don’t post here that much…I’ll still be uploading pics to the gallery though, I’m no longer a “Jr. Researcher”, I just earned my “Collector” title!
To celebrate: have some fillies

Well I’m almost ready for my usual routine when there is a new episode.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Step one: Watch Episode
Step two: Sleep for 12 hours from lack of it
Step three: Find youtube stream, take pics
Step four: Make low res macros

Profit.

Hax Mega’s stream got Borken just as the episode was about to air, I’ll have to catch youtube streams later.

Haha, Dr. Ray Stantz out of nowhere! Besides that though, having what looks to be a hunter around all the ponies is kinda disturbing, though of course, generally, I don’t think horses are animals that are hunted.

Also, sorry about not being active, as something has caught by interest, something I can sum up in one picture.

Yeah, Verbose being there is a bit of a problem. Sure hope that guy doesn’t think about using him as a trophy or anything.

Also, X-Singular, that picture of the ponies as foals and fillies made me HNNNNNG!

Watching the episode in crappy definition a half hour late really kills it for me.

Those rainbow apples are… I don’t even.

At least there was some Scootaloo being adorable.

Now DT (or was it SS?) has a canon father.

Back to the episode then!

Yeah, it was Diamond Tiara whose father was shown there, and I guess the farm is close to the forest since random weather will pop in from time to time.

Hey it’s now also canon that scootaloo attends ponyville elementary.

Yeah, sadly there was no Luna in this episode, and I have a bad feeling no more Luna for this entire season.

So…
That one fic about the Apple Bloom did have some accidentally canon stuff in it, the Tiaras/Riches being the second family in Ponyville.

I didn’t love that episode.
It needed moar Scootaloo.

It had enough scootaloo to satiate the fanbase, with that scene of her eating the toast w/ Rainbow Jelly on it… I shudder at the thought of what dark reaches of the net will do to that.

And did anyone else capture those extremely devious looks Sweetie Bell was giving? I was too slow to screen cap one : (

And lastly – Dem Apples be 20% cooler than all other apples.

Jan 07, 2012 at 11:04AM EST

Well I love the new mystical creatures.
Nothing but a good set of flame throwers won’t fix. ;)

EqD, y u no like my story?

I already asked /fic/ for some help, but could you guys give some suggestions too?

I need to:
1) Fix the transitions at the opening of the story so they aren’t so jarring. I want the opening to still be mysterious, but it probably does need some definition.
and
2) Not start so many paragraphs with ‘Pinkie.’ Would I just use she? I don’t want to develop Lavender Unicorn Syndrome.

Fic link.

I really want to get this on EqD, but I don’t want the opening to lose the mystery I think it has. Do you think that it is hard to follow?

Here’s the review:

Dear Author:
Good afternoon! I’m Pre-reader 23-ish, and will be going over your story today. I don’t seem to have access to the comments that were made by the last reviewer, so I’ll have to start from scratch.

Let’s dig in, shall we?
Grammatically, things seem pretty solid. I’m not seeing any gross misspellings or other major issues of a typographical nature.

However, I did see some issues I will bring to your attention below.

[List of Issues]
1) Your transitions are extremely jarring. While you’re using line breaks to denote when a change is about to occur, there’s nothing to provide context TO the change. One minute we’re with filly Pinkie who got sick.. the next, we’re somewhere else. The problem there is that it takes several sentences of dialogue for us to establish what time-frame we’re actually in. While we’re trying to figure that out, we’re losing our grip on the story. You really need to smooth that out. Because of the rough transitions, it’s Clyde and the others that are coming across as bi-polar and utterly crazy. That’s jarring in and of itself, honestly.

2) Word repetition. You’re starting way too many paragraphs off with ‘Pinkie’, and many of them are in a row.

[Suggested Fixes]
Take a look at your transitions. Try to feather them into each other; start an event in one and finish it in the other, perhaps?
Also, go back and take a look at the first section; try to find different ways to start your paragraphs.

(OMG the HTML worked!!!)

I’m trying really hard not to be an author who thinks that their work is just so genius that people who understand just aren’t right. If they don’t get it it’s likely that others won’t get it.

Buck writers block.

I’ll watch it later, which means I should avoid this thread until I do.

CAUTION
There be spoilers here

>MFW that episode:

Hax Mega’s stream broke so unfortunately I missed the beginning of the episode. He did manage to fix it half-way through the first commercial break though, and from then on… 20 minutes of pure win.

I honestly wasn’t expecting that episode to be all that great, but it provided a fanon-shattering amount of backstory, and it didn’t disappoint from beginning to end. It had great humour throughout, and had some of the best CMC scenes to date. Thanks to that episode, Applebloom is now considerably higher in my personal ‘Best Pony’ rankings.

Highlights:

  • Zap apples. They’re awesome. We should really be funding genetic research to make those IRL (right after we finish making IRL pegasi).
  • Filthy Rich being called ‘Filthy’ constantly. It was funny the first time, and never really got old. Plus, his existence explains the behaviour of Diamond Tiara pretty well.
  • More randomness from Granny Smith than Pinkie Pie could dish out in a month. The part where they were jumping over things singing the alpahbet while dressed like bunnies had to be one of the most ‘lolwut’ things I’ver ever seen.
  • Zappy Belle.
  • The timber wolves were awesome. Unlike most monsters in the series, I thought they looked genuinely scary. If they don’t find their way into a load of artwork in the next few weeks, I will be srsly disappoint.
  • Scootaloo eating ‘Rainbow Jelly’… lolololol
  • Absolutely everything about the flashback scene. It completely eviscerated the backstories of a bunch of fanfics I’ve read, but it was so good that I couldn’t care less. I really liked the artistic style they used for it too.

The only thing that was disappointing was the lack of an intro due to a faulty stream. Moar episodes like that plz.

Speaking of Diamond Tiara, or well, Silver Spoon, she was first pony to clap after Granny Smith’s story, not as shallow as she’s made out to be apparently.

Also, poor Filthy Rich, I probably wouldn’t want that first name either.

I just got done watching the episode i liked the timber wolves because they were not just wolves.
I did not expect granny to act like the way she did.
This one did not make me laugh as much as the last one but it still was pretty good

Damn, the reviewer was right. I never explicitly state that Pinkie grows up. You think that she is still a filly after the decade break…

Okay so about the new episode… Meh. Not to be a downer or anything, I wasn’t real excited about it anyways because I’ve really never been interested in Applejack’s family at all and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to sit through an episode full of Granny Smith without thinking nothing but “oh god Granny Smith got an episode before Scootaloo did”. And yeah yeah I know scoots was in it…

You know what? it had it’s moments. For example…

I liked when it was over.

No really, I thought it was okay, but like I said sometime last week? I just want to see the Pinkie episode next week.

Oh and…

Oh well, I watched it on YouTube.
I liked it, it was a good episode.

And I’m feeling too lazy to write out a whole thing on it, so meh.


Heh, the newly announced episode seems interesting, to say the least. Plus, looks like Rainbow will be getting some character development, so that’s cool.

New plot hole to rage over.

In Winter Wrap Up Twilight says that earth ponies in Ponyville have been cleaning up winter for hundreds of years.

In Family Appreciation Day we learn that Ponyville hasn’t existed for much longer than 70 or 80 years.

Hey everyone. Been gone from the pony thread for a while. Had stuff to do and this thread tends to suck hours away from my day so I had to take a small break.

Edit: Also, I enjoyed today’s episode. Granny Smith was great.

Edit2: I was going to say this but then I forgot to and Algernon’s covered it pretty well. Granny Smith is just insanely old.

New far-fetched solution:

Ponies live for a really, really long time. That way, Granny Smith’s family did found Ponyville, and they’ve been cleaning up winter for hundreds of years.


@Cite

That has to be the worst trolling idea I’ve ever seen.

It’s funny ‘cause they think we’ll actually care. They’re doing a 20 episode marathon, and all that will do is replace one average episode with arguably one of the worst ones. There’ll still be 19 episodes getting picked legitimately, so really, who gives a damn?

To be perfectly honest, I didn’t like MMDW much either, but that may just be due to my huge Rainbow Dash bias belief of her being best pony. I believe it’s the only episode I haven’t watched twice.
But that’s not why I posted it. I posted it because I’m just amazed.
The sad thing is, trolls are causing the most votes (or something).
