They love us!
I really am almost crying right now.

You do realize this was finished months ago, don’t you?

This entire season was finished last year, as Derpy was becoming popular. If they were going to “desert” her, as the maker of this image so flimsily puts it, we wouldn’t know until about nine months from now.

Even as the season goes on, there are a lot of “touching up” going on behind the scenes. For example, Derpy was spotted in the first episode of the first season and they managed to sneak her in by “’Feeling Pinkie Keen” (That was the episode where she dropped a Piano on Twi’s head right?).

All in all, it would take 5-6 episodes to notice anything different.

But still, that’s the first reference to Muffins with Derpy canonically in the show.

Engie that is pretty damn good, but y u never give AJ hat? It was included in the pack, or if you’re using the toybox, check roughly page 3 of most popular in the props section, see?

I see the hat in toybox next to her. In a few of my pics it shows her hat in the backround. But it’s annoying trying to get it on. So I just leave her adorable and hatless.

Listen to the Iron Will’s intro theme song…

…then listen to Guile’s theme song.

Link to Guile’s Theme

Then shit bricks.

It always seemed similar to “Eye of the Tiger” from Rocky III, the reference to Mt.T sealed it.

BTW, /mlp/ may be 4chan, but they are funny at times:

I just realized, it’s been about 2 months since EqD hit 100 million pages views, and they’re already a third of the way to the next 100 millionth.

Anypony want to discuss the merits or history of Equestria Daily?

I remember the day when they got to 50 000. It seems like so long ago…

Well….concerning EqD

They’re cool I guess, they provide a service that is appreciated. Though they can be overly silly at times ( I prefer too silly to overly serious though)

I don’t really have anything much else to say.

Everyone’s probably gone, but there’s one thing I want to talk about: the resolution to today’s episode.

It seemed a bit perfect, Pinkie and Rarity just forgave Fluttershy for what I would think would be the lowest insult anypony could use. Insulting not just what they do, but their true purpose in life is horrible. She wasn’t just saying that they were wasting their lives, she was saying that their lives were pointless; their lives are defined by their talents and cutie marks.

It seems like that would be something that was a taboo in pony culture.

I just had a problem with them just being friends after that, but of course, there had to be a fast resolution.

So I will give mah 2 Cents on this episode.
I was pretty happy about an episode about Fluttershy, and to be quite honest I was happy with the outcome. I especially loved that one guy’s rhyming (Good god, I already forgot his name?) but anyways, let’s start where I feel necessary to start. At first, I thought at least 2/4 of the epsiode would be concerning Angel Bunny and getting the food he wants. But man, I was dead wrong. Speaking of Angel Bunny, he’s the total opposite of my bunny. My bunny is black, Angel is white, my bunny is generally pretty quiet, Angel is loud with the noises he makes, Angel is very picky with his foods but my bunny will literally eat anything. Just thought it was worth mentioning. Anyways, when I heard those 2 “average teen” ponies say “Get a life.” I was actually quite shocked, I thought that would never be brought up in the show, but apparently they had it used as an insult against Fluttershy, but I did think that would make her cry all the way to her home, knowing her in previous episodes, in fact that should have happened! By the way, that place with all the hedges really looked like the hedge maze from S2:E1, which was quite distracting to be honest. Speaking of S2:E1 when Pinkie and Rarity came to her and started complaining about wanting the “old Fluttershy” back, when Fluttershy started to throw insults, it really looked more like she was becoming the Flutterbitch more than just a Fluttershy that won’t let anyone get in her way. Another nitpick I want to point out is when she had Angel tie her to a chair, she was only there for like 3 minutes, then she comes out, how pointless was that? Plus, how did she get out, did Angel just say “Fuck it, I am gonna untie this whore.” and did it? Oh well, and a pretty nice letter to Celestia, too.
My rating of this episode: 4.3 out of 5

I don’t know, Fluttershy’s cottage changed a whole lot when she locked herself in so it seems that some time has passed after she insulted them and they had time to deal with it.

Besides, they could tell how Fluttershy was hurting as well from what she said.

@Phoneix

I was going to bring that up to. It looked like there was a significant time passing after that scene. Enough time for tempers too cool down and for Pinkie & Rarity to realize that Fluttershy had been absent for a worrying about of time.


@Bruelock

That scene is fan-made you say? I could have sworn I did see that in the actual episode

Oh, your right. Must have missed that glimpse somehow.

Silly me~

That was one damn good episode IMO, Angel being a pimp, Flutterb**ch’s triumphant return, and to top it all off one of the funniest antagonists(?) in the whole series.
Seriously, Iron Will is best minotaur.

In other news…

SOMEONE

This is the greatest day of my life…

Looking for this, 404?

And that’s a pretty interesting Tumblr, gives me an idea too:

We should create a huge list of all the best tumblrs out there. I know that one exists already but it is incomplete and doesn’t get all of them. But we should be able to maintain our own much better. Sounds like a job for the Pony Hub? We can call it the official KYM recommended Tumblr thread

Thoughts?

I was actually going to start a “what’s your favourite ask tumblr?” thread on the new forum but you can go ahead.

I doubt we can compile a list without clashing in opinion so let’s just recommend tumblrs to each other.

And for a very long exhaustive list we have this:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1njTTTPv1Of4yHd6igFCNCB9JyXOhH4IHENwnt55zIWc/edit?hl=en_US

I would hazard a guess and say that has about 80% of the active tumblrs on it. The above tumblr with screwball and screwloose is not on it though, you’ll need to email the dude running it to have it added.

Your statement is invalid

So the next episode is the one with the future Twilight and all that. What do you guys think the odds are that there will be some sort of back to the future or some other time traveling reference? And do you think Dr. Whooves will have some sort of role in it?

With the Dr. Whooves thing, I think they most definitely will not, except with some sort of background appearance. After what happened the last time they tried to appeal to the fanbase in this sort of fashion, I really think it’s unlikely they would do something like that again. Also, Dr. Whooves = Dr. Who, copyright stuff.

As for a time traveling reference, I’d say most definitely, though I’m unsure as to what it would be.

The only thing I think about the episode is that it turns out that it wasn’t future Twilight, it was just Trixie back wanting revenge.

10$ and half of my cigarettes says there will be a shit-ton of of back to the future references and twilight’s like Marty Mcfly.
I FRICK’N BET YOU.

The weekend seem pretty quiet on KYM.I know I’m mostly a Night Time poster but seriously,Where is everyone ?It’s daytime and nopony is around.This situation make me wanna go to bed.

They are her best friends after all. Plus, They know she has a personality disorder. You’ve never fought with a friend before where horrible things were said? If you are good enough friends, you can resolve it pretty quickly( a couple days or a week)

I don’t think Doctor Whooves will ever really appear as acting like Dr Who. I mean, the reference is clear, but in my opinion Studio B will let this as a source of inspiration for fandoms only and as a background character. Which IMO is not so bad.

Anyway, more psycho-ponies coming… I hope this will be great, Twilight already surpassed herself during Lesson Zero.

They did reference it; but like you said, he’s not really acting like Doctor Who.

I’m really hoping for something with “Lesson Zero” like craziness going around.

In the end, I believe that Twilight would be trying to prevent something unpreventable and it turns out to be something not that bad at all.

Also, comic related:

Pyro.
Why didn’t you join us ?
Also are you still with RED or BLU or Freelance like me ?
Cause Luna was having fun hanging out with the others on the ground
I was trying not to fall off of Derpy….

I didn’t join because The Administrator’s been watching me very closely lately. I think she’s on to me having Luna in the base. I’ve been keeping a low profile ever since my princess of the night arrived here. I already pissed the bitch we work for off by Spy Checking her once or twice, and I really don’t want Luna to leave. As for which team, I’m a freelance. Just lending my clones to both teams. Every once in a while, though, RED or BLU will buy my services for a bit, and I’ll wear their colors for a couple rounds until the other team gets tired of me torching them and offers a higher price. Then, I switch and the process repeats. Luna’s the one constant here in this place, and the only one I truely trust. Sorry if I overreated to he being gone. She’s been the corner stone of my life for a long time, and when she’s not there, I feel empty and miserable.

How’d you know Scorpion’s my favorite MK character?
