KYM Pony General V: We Just Don't Know What Went Wrong

@Season Finale

In order to sell the upcoming wedding playset, Hasbro wants Studio B to make a wedding episode.

This is probably the case, yeah. Unfortunately there’s not much to say about it, this show was made for marketing (even if it ended up being so much more than a 22 minute commercial). But hey, we’ve seen the team turn out great episodes from shaky-sounding concepts before, so why don’t we give ’em the benefit of the doubt for now, eh?

I don’t like the fact that Cadence is an alicorn either

Well, we don’t know for sure if she is. She wasn’t one in the early stages of development:

The synopsis mentions a “wedding shocker”, which could be Cadence not being an actual alicorn (either her wings or horn are fake, or she’s not a combination of all three races like true alicorns, but rather a rare half-breed of unicorn and pegasus [the fact that she’s lacking in size (at least based on the images we’ve seen of her so far) is supportive of this theory, assuming greater physical size is an indication of earth-pony heritage]).

As for why we’ve heard nothing of her in the past, there’s two possible outcomes:

She’s a foreigner from a neighbouring kingdom (Equestria isn’t the whole planet, after all) and thus not well known to the general Equestrian citizenry…
…Or she HASN’T been heard of before (in-universe, that is) and the ponies are suspicious of her because of that.

Oh, and to anyone panicking about the whole shebang, take a gander at this:

Oh, and while I’m at it, I wanna address this one pet peeve of mine, since Algernon brought it up:

It could also be that any unicorn that achieves a certain level of magical aptitude becomes one.

Why only unicorns? Since alicorns are a combination of all three pony species it should be possible to transform any given pony into an alicorn. Now, I know alicorns being all three races is a fanon idea (although I have a vague memory of someone involved with the show saying the theory is correct, but that could be my brain playing tricks on me) but I think it’s a more plausible theory than alicorns being just a combination of two. I mean, the princesses would be a rather lopsided representation of their people if that were the case, no?

Also, if you want to get really technical about the name, “alicorn” kind of sounds like ALL-ICORN, which implies the inclusion of all three. But that’s kind of pointless, since alicorn is a fanon term anyhow (it hasn’t been used in the show) and if you REALLY want to get technical, “alicorn” refers to the material unicorn horns are made out of.

First off WTF is with the nazi flag shit?
Second SRSLY new episode yesterday let’s see it bronies.

There was a lot of great soundbites, some exploitables, and lots of macros.

Fixed it.

Until I figure out where the pony forum went, I’ll have to post this here.

Why did I post that here?

Put two and two together. Or just check the comments.

For anyone with doubts about Shinning Armor really being Twi’s bro, this really looks, hum, interresting.

We should have seen the signs.
Its the neon in his hair that threw me off; but Twilight even has neon colors in her hair, so it’s not that absurd.

I am now officially unpissedoff at this, now I will direct all my rage at Princess Candace.

ohgodwhy…

I am now really excited for the season finale! I wonder what twilights and Shinings relationship is going to be like.

Its about horses and its really cool, not about MLP though



So apparently Celestia was suppose to visit. But because my teleporter is still haywire from the Derpy incident. It wasn’t Celestia at all. It was Molestia.

Needless to say it did not end pretty.
I’m still scarred.

Does anyone know what happened to theponyhub. Is it just down for being updated, or has it been moved?

Major update.

It is going to be down for a lot longer than expected.

Its not going to be just a forum anymore.
there is going to be an actual pony-related website. An image gallery, IRC chat, Forum members’ chat, new smilies and lots of other features.

Oh, on this note, will it be accessible just from ThePonyHub.com ?

The previous version didn’t work this way, you could only access it if you went to the forum URL.

Lol, I actually know the artist who made that through Steam.

All my respect If you can guess who I tried to make it look like.

I KNOW THIS! WHY CAN’T I REMEMBER?!

@X:

If Pegasi hatch from eggs, why wouldn’t they have siblings?

Oh, gosh. (what lesson about friendship?)

When Twilight Sparkle receives a strange and vague warning about impending doom and disaster from her future self, she drives herself nearly mad in an attempt to stall a cataclysmic event, but her uncertainty makes finding answers difficult.

sigh I think the KYM Pony forum has spoiled me…

My mind was not ready for all the fuck that clip just filled it with

is it just me or is it implied that there really is some kind of epic pony war in the future if future twilight didn’t exactly say wether or not there was, only that she was from next tuesday?

And about the season finale

lol I wonder if the wedding shocker is that Princess Cadence isn’t really an Alicorn. Dear Princess Celestia. Today I learned that impersonating godlike deities justifies banishment to the moon. Your faithful student Twilight Sparkle. Or maybe she’s just evil.

maybe the pony wars is ponys vs aliens

Cool, new episode clip! I assume it’s going to be Lesson Zero all over again, but hey, that was actually one of the best episodes so far (it won the mare-a-thon), and I’d love for a firmer establishment in the canon that Twilight goes insane under pressure.


Meanwhile in the pony universe, Scootaloo’s plans just don’t seem to be working out too well…

@Episode clip

That future Twi just HAS to be a Mad Max reference.

Post-apocalyptic futures: now canon! Well not really but the Fan-Fiction writers know what to do.

[edit]

People are getting the idea already:

Apocalypse Twilight could be the new best pony if this develops. I expect a related tumblr to show up about this soon, if not already

Guys, I don’t know where you’re getting this post-apocalyptic stuff from. This Twilight came from next Tuesday. The eyepatch, scratch on her cheek, and the suit probably are explained off in some other way. Future Twilight didn’t say sh!t. < Highlight


Come on guys, put the solid snake twilight under spoiler tags or something! :(

That’s one of the good things about the forums. Enforced rules about spoilers.
