Went Shoppng for groceries. Internet memes e’erywhere.

First I saw a box of this.

Then a little later, I saw a box of this

I thought about getting the pony fruit snacks, but I decided against it. They had each of the mane six on there except for Rainbow Dash, and really, if I’m going to go so far as to pay good money to eat out a pony’s gummy parts, it better be goddamn Rainbow Dash.

I mean seriously

guys, you’ll never believe what just happened no less than 15 minutes ago. so my sister and her boyfriend came home while i was watching MLP season 1 DVD and they went into the kitchen to get some drinks. while in the kitchen they were doing their whole lovey dovey thing and kissing and playing grab-ass and what not, and it was unappealing to me, so i went up to my room. a few minutes later, i heard them enter into my sister’s room and then some rustling occurred. i thought nothing of it, they were probably just making out again on her bed. then i heard her scream and i got worried so i ran over to her room, and opened the door, got on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur! open to door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur! BOOM BOOM ACKLAKKALAKKA BOOM BOOM BOOM ACKLAKKALAKKA BOOM!

Just kidding. They knew I had some girly interests here and there growing up and I knew they wouldn’t be surprised. I may not have told them either if it wasn’t for that.

Rainbow Dash isn’t a fruit snack because Rainbow Dash is a kill-joy.
Simple as that.

So there was a box in my mail today.

Time to unpack that fucker.

Now this is looking more like it. What’s this gray thing?

Well fuck me.

It’s a Derpy plush.

Yes people, this little fella was waiting for me in my mail this morning.

Kudos for the plush go to our plushmaster Deadparrot. I couldn’t have asked for a better gift.

Nope, get off the stage!

Kind of wish I had my mom’s birthday, though.
Worshiping Lyra’s hooves seems like it would be a nice, mutually-enjoyable activity.

@RandomMan
Oh, wow, that was quick.
Glad you like her!
In a convenient bit of timing, I also received a package recently.


Yep, finally got a Fluttershy and my very own RandomMan voodoo do-
Um… Angel Bunny… yeah…
You can probably just ignore any stabbing pains you may feel over the next few days.

I… didn’t know the 3D pony models could be made to do that. Add that to all the other pics, and I once again find myself shaking my head and muttering. Oh internet, you and I have such different senses of humor. ¬_¬

@Derpy Plushie

I was about to start bugging Fifths to share his elaborate plans for assassinating fellow forum users and taking their plushies, and then I could hunt Random Man down and take his Derpy… But then I saw DeadParrot’s Fluttershy.

MINE! GIMME!!

@DeadParrot

Fun fact: I just so happen to have the most popular version of that clip on YouTube. Aren’t I special? Actually, I only posted that video to try and show that what everyone was saying about it was basically nonsense.

Ya…so that’s two users Deadparrot has gotten plushies for and by my estimate, his personal collection has exceeded the cost of my laptop and all my instruments combined.

I think it’s time Deadparrot graduated from a mere plush master to PLUSH MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE!!!

So… this happened:








Yeah, that is the real Rarity (a.k.a. Tabitha St. Germaine)!
Awesome animation as usual by BlackGryph0n.

Typically, official staff is barred, or at least strongly discouraged, from participating in fan works (legal stuff) but pony seems to be the exception for whatever reason.
(Maybe “Twilightlicious” broke some ground?)
I hope the other VAs are ready for the torrent of “Hey, can you voice this thing I did? Tabitha did it!”

Miss-using books… In a time of war!?

Those books are needed on the frontlines, dammit. Do you guys want Ponyville to be invaded by Naponeon Poneaparte?

Huh. Actually that sounds like it would make a strong season 3 opener. By all means keep using books incorrectly – you know, like, read them or something.

Your name says it all, man!
Everyone knows that The Great Book War ended years ago with the retaking of Book Mountain.

We are simply attempting to re-purpose those ancient weapons of war.
Your ‘reading’ suggestion is a little nutty, though.
As if there’s anything in these books… worth… read…
Wait a sec…

This calls my whole concept of reality into question!
AJ!
Find out what Twilight is reading!

Hmm… Her prediction is probably quite accurate then.

@Gummy



I just left a comment in the Nightly Roundup. What you could do is email EqD (submit@equestriadaily.com) and ask them to take the link down, but I think you’d just want credit/be asked before people started generating money with it.

As for the issue objectively, I think it’s an interesting situation. The copyright belongs to Hasbro, but it’s something you created. Making money off of a donation is probably infringing upon copyright, but with all of the Nightly Roundup stuff, I’m sure they have people watching it closely to make sure that they aren’t making too much money off of their property. And if it’s donation money, then I doubt they’ll try to send cease and desist orders.

But in regards to the fandom, I would like to believe that bronies respect the fan artists (of various mediums), and I’d believe that most of us do. But some really don’t due to plenty of reasons.

The guy who’s trying to make a dime for charity:

1. Didn’t feel like he should ask because it was for charity and he wasn’t making money for himself (which is weak reasoning, in my opinion.)
2. Isn’t considerate of most people (which…I could actually see. Some people, brony or not, just plain don’t care about other people, and they’ll put their values over another person’s consideration in a heartbeat, even if it’s not their property in the first place.)
3. He couldn’t find the source. I have a ton of images saved, but I don’t always know who’s the artist. Now I would go and find the source and ask before I tried to generate money from it, and I wouldn’t use that art if I couldn’t, but some other people…don’t care as much, I guess?

I apologize if it’s sort of obnoxious to attempt to get a topic going in my first post in this thread, but I’ll take my chances.

We have plots for Part 1 and Part 2 of season three.

I’m really sorry but I haven’t even listened to the leaked songs from Season 3 to avoid spoilers so I really can’t join in :(

@Deadparrot:

He actually just straight up said it was Tabitha? Because I recall he was dancing around the issue due to contractual obligations. You know, the whole description for his first Rarity video is basically “What? Tabitha? PSSHT, no way she would get in huge trouble if she ever you know, deigned to voice this Rarity video where I I will not reveal the VA because she wants her privacy and all….yeah….that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it”

I think you may have struck coal here. I’ve heard two of the songs from Season 3, but I’m avoiding spoiling images and other Season 3 information (I don’t know how much else is out there.)

So I can’t really weigh in either.
 
But don’t worry about your posts and them being spoilers. You’ve told us what they are, and they’re behind links. You’ve got enough protection there as it is.

@phoenix
Yup, here’s the official page with the credits (TheLivingTombstone did the music apparently): A RHYME BY RARITY
I, too, am pretty curious as to how all this ended up taking place.
Typically, voice actor contracts are written in a way that basically bars them from portraying a copyrighted character for anything outside of official, sanctioned functions (thus why they all need agent approval to attend any of the conventions or go on a radio show).
That could imply that the two of them actually went to Hasbro/The Hub to get permission for this.
Then again, BlackGryph0n’s big breakout video came about from animating Tara’s “Twilightlicious” song which she did on a whim for Twitter (not approved by Hasbro) and I don’t recall ever hearing about any negative repercussions from that.
It could be that the Hasbro execs have decided to be very laid back in these instances, or they figure that direct fan-involvement will ultimately serve to strengthen the show.
Or maybe they quite simply don’t know about it yet and reckoning will soon be upon us.
Without any more information, it’s impossible to know.
It’s definitely a very unusual case.

@Fun Police

(Note: Only a play on your username, not telling you to stop posting! More people are always welcome!)
Really, those synopses are pretty vague.
There are some intriguing elements in there, but it would be very difficult to speculate too much.
Not to mention, I think we’d rather avoid the subject all together out of respect for those attempting to avoid spoilers.
All we really need now is a DAMN AIR-DATE!

@Parrot: By unofficial things I’ve seen, it’s gonna be out next month. We haven’t got an official air-date, but IMDB says it’s Oct. 2012, and considering the last episodes were in April, that sounds about right to me. Of course, whether or not that date was stealthily put up by a Hasbro / Studio B employee remains to be seen.

>Discussing a topic in Pony General


I got one though.

I think we mostly believe that FiM is “safe.” If the show ends any time soon, then it wouldn’t be because of weak viewership or weak toy/merch sales.

But in terms of the outlook of the existence of the fourth generation, would the show be just as well off without bronies?


@StarGazer

I don’t listen to podcasts/brony radio. I’m…particular about voices, and everyone seems to have the same accent.

Ah, yes. The ’ol “What if Bronies never happened” question.

Basing from previous instances of that debate, I think we can agree that if 4chan never took notice of MLP then it would have remained in as much obscurity as the Carebears animated series. Carebears carries on without all the attention, so would FiM. There would still be 2.5 seasons or whatever but after that, it would simply end without leaving a trace.

Without all the attention from Bronies, FiM would continue on it’s own way. Living up to nobodies expectations. It would succeed in its original goal: Appealing to young girls and selling merchandise but I don’t think it would have amounted to much more than that. Certainly not becoming what it is known for now.

It was 4chans influential power that turned MLP from being just another regular cartoon to an internet sensation. The same power that turned Rebecca Black from Wannabe to actual celebrity is the same power that selected MLP and carried it into animation stardom

The shows good qualities would still be there but they would have gone undiscovered without internet nerds there to over-analyse them.

Derpy would not exist, Vinyl Scratch would not exist, Doctor Who would not have been revisited by generation Z. There would be no Fox reports, no conventions, no detailed cosplays, no inspired artwork or music. All of those things are here now due to Brony influence.

Would FiM have been just fine without all that? Yes. It would have done well enough by itself. But only as far as ordinary non-notable kids cartoons go.

Long story short, I would never suggest the show would not have worked without Bronies, but it is only because of Bronies that the show ascended to the level of fame it has now.

Kids’ shows will trudge on. I was flipping through the channels the other day, something I rarely do, and stumbled across some horrible 3-d animated kids’ show. No idea what it was, just that it was god awful. Shows for the young’uns don’t need the attention. They’ll run their course and no one will notice.
