Raping drama? Interesting image…

So this is a new page, huh? I wonder how far we’ve gotten. Let’s see, 97, 98, 99… ASDFOMGWTFBBQ PAGE 100?!

This thread is now politically correct. We now have to assume the banana is intended to be a phallic object and is used for NSFW purposes.

Personally, I find the sexualization and perversion of these cartoon characters morally abhorrent and a clear sign that our society is going down the tubes!
What is wrong with these people lusting after colorful horses?!

Especially when we have perfectly good voice actors to lust after!



There, that’s better!

Yeah, I’m definitely not on the side of censoring jokes and artwork for the sake of a few people’s feelings, but I can also absolutely see Fifth’s angle on it, too.
My general rule is that if something can not be shown to cause some kind of direct, demonstrable harm to someone, it’s probably a bad idea trying to ban it.
You would be hard-pressed to make the case that a comic strip about a cartoon horse overstepping the bounds of sexual decency rises to that level so this ‘movement’ has always seemed pretty wrong-headed (if possibly well-intentioned).
There are far bigger fish to fry in the world of preventing and dealing with rape.

But again, I do agree that introspection is a good idea.
The culture of the internet has really normalized a whole lot of behavior that would typically be considered outlandish if performed in ‘normal’ society.
It’s kind of interesting to look at that and wonder what it really means in terms of how we feel about these subjects.

‘Black Humor,’ in my opinion, is a kind of coping mechanism.
One of those ‘I only laugh to keep myself from crying’ kinds of things.
Rape, death, murder, terrorism, and all the other evils of the modern world are all extremely ‘serious’ topics that can easily reach to the core of a human being’s fears about life, mortality, safety, etc.
Frankly, I think a lot of the jokes about them stem from a mostly-subconscious form of… not really ‘denial,’ but something along those lines.
It’s comforting to be able to laugh at those kinds of jokes because it… ‘softens’ them a bit.
By no means does it imply that you care less about the real-life tragedies, but it simply allows a person to have a momentary respite from an otherwise mostly morbid subject.

Okay, I got a little Psych 101 in there, but I hope I got the general idea across.
Censorship (without justifiable cause) = bad.
Having a conversation about the various ways that our society deals with troubling situations = Probably pretty good.


In other news:

Luna!
After a stupidly long time spent slowly collecting gems, the princess of the night is finally mine!

That is all.

You call that an offensive joke? That’s nothing. This is offensive.

What’s the difference between a pizza and a Jew?

A pizza doesn’t scream when it’s put in an oven.

Fifths said:

First off, yes, you can define comedy, satire, and parody, and it’s no more difficult than consulting your local dictionary.

A dictionary can tell you the definition of the words, but it can’t tell you if a joke is funny or not, only you can determine if you find something funny, hence humor being subjective. The same’s true for satire and parody. There’s no clear way to tell if something’s a satire or a parody, there’s only >opinions.

Insisting on watching or doing something for no other reason than it pisses someone off doesn’t make you a fighter for personal liberty, it just makes you an asshole.

I don’t suggest doing it just to piss off Tumblr, there are much easier ways to do that. I do it because I find it funny or entertaining. If that happens to also piss people off, then it does. I can’t control others’ jimmies.

Personally, I feel things like rape jokes are really needed. The world’s a pretty dark place (insert x amount of babies starve to death each minute statistic here) and if we can’t find humor in the bad that happens, it only becomes a whole lot darker.

@DeadParrot222
Thanks for reminding me about the next chapter of my fanfic. Who would have thought turning the Night Guard into a psuedo-NSA would be so hard? Comedy fics are fun, but man do they make it hard when you try and throw in more serious elements.

We need something to talk about. Let’s see if /mlp/ has anything…
>fur suit genital bulge thread
>Hoof fetish thread
>Button’s Adventure thread that turned into a MILF thread
>Anon in Equestria thread 5^18
>Draw thread
>Unicorn horn porn thread

Screw it, so I started watching Code Geass the other day (I really like it, the moral and ethical issues, combined with the fact that nobody’s really good or evil, just a murky shade of grey. Although, it’s starting to get creepy, what with the unexplained thirty second scene of >implied masturbation) and I couldn’t help but immediately compare Princess Euphemia to Cadance (the pink hair doesn’t help). This isn’t the first time this has happened. Kiara, from the Lion King 2 also immediately makes me jump over to Cadance as does Princess Vivi from One Piece.

So, are there any characters in other media that remind you of MLP characters?

He’s Jesus Ablahblah some Spanish last name, what do you expect, I’m ’Murican.

They also have Jeff Bridges pony (best pony) whose name is Jeff “The Dude” Letrowski or something. Or they changed it to something silly like “Trixie the Magnificent” or how John Goodman pony is “Bowling Pony” who “Doesn’t roll on Sundays.”

Well, speaking of Code Geass, it should be noted that Orange boy is the very element of loyalty in their universe. And if I were to reenact Code Geass with ponies, I’d cast Twilight as Lelouch, Rainbow as Spinzaku Suzaku, Fluttershy as Kallen, Pinkie as Lloyd, Rarity as Rakshata, and Applejack as Xingke.

So, I haven’t really been checking on the KYM PG for a while, but since you guys hit 100 pages again, I decided to pop by and see what’s up.

I still remember when the first PG hit 100. It was beautiful.


But since this IS a pony thread, I decided to throw it out there that there’s a new pony related pic on the works (and close to being finished). First picture since May I think, and the one before that was done in the summer of 2012. I’ve been having other stuff to do, and very little inspiration, so it’s been silent.

Also the letdown of Season 3 didn’t reinforce my inspiration much, but I guess it’s difficult to live up to Season 2.

Maybe Season 4 will get me on the mood to draw ponies again. We’ll just have to wait and see.


In the meantime, I think I’ll lurk the shadows, and try to follow this thread a bit more actively too.


Oh, and it’s nice to see you being active again Platus. I remember when you disappeared suddenly to God knows where a long time ago. I haven’t really had a chance to say hi, just for the sake of the good old days

Bro, you’re talking to a trust fund kid right here.

Check your privilege.

And I’ll have you know, I only buy gems when they’re selling 200 gems for 5 dollars and I only really did that so I could buy Rarity and Rainbow Dash. And I only cried for 20 minutes.

Well…..someone did it. Well, if it makes the Bronies feel less screwed up this girl was born before Friendship is magic so you can’t blame the bronies here…..maybe? Either way that just makes me realize two things.

1. A woman, (four years ago) thought Rainbow Dash, the pony that ‘dresses in style’ in Generation 3 of My Little Pony was a good name for her daughter and her husband (1 year before Friendship is magic) agreed.
And….
2. She seriously……..named her daughter Rainbow Dash. What sane person would name their child after a candy colored pony? I can get why you’d name your child Dovahkin so you can get free Bethesda games for life. But……..She named her daughter Rainbow Dash not even the GOOD Rainbow Dash.

Oh well, hopefully the bronies that DO want to name their child “Twilight Sparkle” or “Pinkie Pie” are the ones that’ll never get near a woman/man (depending on which gender the brony is) so we won’t have to deal with a bunch of kids with mommy and daddy issues in the future.

Oh, don’t worry, man.
This girl may be based on the Gen 3.5 Rainbow Dash (which actually makes a twisted reasonable priceskind of sense when you take the fact that these parents are toddler beauty pageant people), but we bronies have our own.

Screw this, I’m out!

Okay the second name is pretty cute. Pinkamena works for a girls name, I guess and Zecora is a cool sounding name overall. Why not?

But naming a boy Twilight Sparkle? First name Twilight? Second name Sparkle? Please tell me that one isn’t real.

Why? Why would you do that to that poor child? He’s gonna get eaten alive in secondary school!

My Nephew is in Kindergarten and his mom divorced his dad, became a lesbian THEN had a sex change (BTW, this might not be that big of a deal anywhere else but they kind of live in Mother fucking Texas….It’s a big ass deal down there that’s for sure). If the kids at school ever find out his mom is now a man who lets his girlfriend take him on walks like a dog he’ll STILL never get picked on as badly as the boy who was named “Twilight Sparkle”

If I could get through watching a two minute scene of an eight year old Nico Robin try desperately to laugh only to collapse in sobs as she watches her hometown and everyone and everything she ever knew burn to the ground in a Buster Call induced holocaust without crying, I can get through anything. Besides, Lelouch is a bit of a dick, so any breaking of him will actually be kind of welcoming. And I’ve already braced for Euphemia’s (the only character who I really like) inevitable assassination. Can’t go blowing up a global superpower if one of their heirs is still alive, now can you, Lelouch?

You underestimate how cold and dead my heart is. Years of [Grimdark]s have made even those cries of children being gunned down in the Shinjuku Ghetto nothing more than a slight cringe.

Well, speaking of Code Geass, it should be noted that Orange boy is the very element of loyalty in their universe. And if I were to reenact Code Geass with ponies, I’d cast Twilight as Lelouch, Rainbow as Spinzaku Suzaku, Fluttershy as Kallen, Pinkie as Lloyd, Rarity as Rakshata, and Applejack as Xingke.

Really? Agent Orange more strikes me as the “Element of Go Completely Insane”. It’s also really funny you mention all of those people, since I don’t know who any of them are because I’m horrible at remembering Japanese names.

Your family reunions must be a blast. I can feel the family drama and gossip from here. It calls me, trying to lure me with its temptation of butthurt and secretly talking about people the second you’re in your car and and away from them.

I’m also really confused. How does one become a lesbian and then have a sex change? Doesn’t that mean you’re still heterosexual? All those masculine pronouns are not helping.

@Kids with pony names.

I’m not sure I see what the big deal is… It’s weird, yes, but under no circumstance does it constitute some breach of acceptable things to do.

… although, it could just be the fact that I’m jaded about “normal” names and yet still don’t have a good enough imagination to come up with new ones. So if I had a child I’d probably call them Knighty Cassey/Cassie, or some noise.

Actually, you know what? I give up. I’ll just wait until their 13th birthday and then let them name themselves.

@Lunar

In a perfect world, you can name your kid anything just about you please and nobody will give a shit as they all recognise that a name is just a name that doesn’t have any relevant impact on anything. Go ahead and consider names from Dicksmash Virginrocket to Kentucky Fried Shitballs, there will be absolutely no repercussions that could possibly stem from any name you give.

…but the world isn’t perfect.

Your own name stigmatises you in a powerful way. If your childs name comes with connotations, then everyone will apply those connotations directly to your child. ESPECIALLY other kids at school and they will be more than happy to harass anyone that stands out in any kind of way and for whatever reason they can think of.

A boy named after a magical unicorn that runs a library in a little girls cartoon is probably going stick out like a sore thumb when his name gets announced in the class roll call in among all the Freds, Chucks, Jacks, Bobs and Bens. And a boy having a name with tons of female connotations will be reason enough to kick some ass in the schoolyard. I remember boys named ‘Ashley’ getting lots of shit for that at the schools I went to, and Ashley is a pretty normal name. I fear for what Mr.Twilight is gonna get and hope the schools can keep it under control.

Then there are statistics that people with really exotic sounding names face more hurdles in life and are more likely to face developmental issues. If your name sounds like you belong on a stripper pole like “Glittering Diamond” it might just affect your future salary and if its a name you can’t even take seriously like “Adolf Hitler” then your CV might not even be looked at.

The only advantage of giving your kid an odd and peculiar name is that you have an increased chance of ending up in a Cracked article. But then you are in a Cracked article which isn’t a good thing.

I’m all for originality in baby names, but for the love of all that is Holy; make it something that sounds cool and you child can wear it with pride. Don’t make it something you children will want to legally change in 18 years

Well… As usual I just noticed I’m having some art woes…

Most specifically, I spent several hours trying to figure out a way to fix a pose where the point was to have the pony lowering their head out of bashfulness or something.

Of course… This pose doesn’t seem to be drawn too often so I don’t have proper references, and as usual its hard to tell if I’ve screwed up and made the pony too fat or too skinny… or something i can’t see has gone wrong because nobody has brought my attention to it.

Bleh… This is way too many words.

Ironically… I think it has the best ear I’ve ever done.

I think its the neck. She looks like shes missing a neck bone. I’d move the skull back further and up a bit so it doesn’t look the spine is craning so much.

Also is this the kind of pose you were looking for?


Quick change of subject to CHICKUN

Serious talk here guys. This is meme related so I expect some input.

I noticed that this article on Chickun popped up. And realised that we don’t have anything on Chickun at all. I wondered why. I’ve been seeing Scoots get paired with that title and that same dopey face several times over the last year.

Here’s some Chickun that we had before that entry:

First thing that came to my mind is the fact that Chickun is basically just Scootachicken with a dopier looking face and we already have Scootachicken covered here as nothing more than a notable in-joke than an actual meme. The spread of Chickun seemed to be restrained to the same circles as Scootachickin and going no further so nobody bothered considering Chickun as a meme either

But with all the image macro’s of Chickun still being spewed about of /mlp/ aside from the efforts of the original meme-forcer on /b/; I think the Pony re-imagining article could afford to be updated by someone here to include Chickun underneath the Scootaloo section and mention how it is paired with that specific scootaloo face and the rest of the backstory that was kindly provided in the Arise Chickun entry.

That entry itself will most certainly be deadpooled Or maybe not now that it has been cleaned up a lot

@Lunar: The head and neck look pretty good to me after that fix, but your pony’s belly doesn’t nearly go low enough. I would say your torso should end right around where the inner thigh lines meet. I would also bring that outer leg up so that it overlaps with the hoof (kinda like what it’s doing with the inner hooves) so that your pony looks more like it is actually sitting.

Gotta agree there too. From the way the belly slopes, it looks like she has no intestines. (See this is why people say your pones look skinny)

The ponu body is made of two adjacent circles, one for upper body, one for lower body. The border of the second circle draws the belly and buttocks, but you appear to be using the thigh bone to make up the lower body instead. I’d also reduce the size of the thigh

Wait… So… The belly and chest don’t use the same curve line?

Well… This certainly means I’d have to change a few things for the sake of my sanity. Excuse me…

This probably looks weird.

I should probably not post any more attempts for tonight… Partly because everyone is probably getting sick of me doing this so many times in a short period, but mostly because I’m tired and hungry.

@Lunar

The neck looks wrong because it doesn’t fit with the perspective. The body is aligned along about a 45 degree angle away from the camera while the head and neck are extended out as if the pone were aligned along a 70 or 80 degree angle from the camera.

It’ll look less wonky if you put the head a little closer to the body and show less neck.

If your name sounds like you belong on a stripper pole like “Glittering Diamond” it might just affect your future salary and if its a name you can’t even take seriously like “Adolf Hitler” then your CV might not even be looked at.

The only advantage of giving your kid an odd and peculiar name is that you have an increased chance of ending up in a Cracked article. But then you are in a Cracked article which isn’t a good thing.

I’m all for originality in baby names, but for the love of all that is Holy; make it something that sounds cool and you child can wear it with pride. Don’t make it something you children will want to legally change in 18 years

You know, I’ve always thought long and hard about names for when my kids come around, and I’ve always wanted exotic names for my children.

Like Thunderbolt.

Thunderbolt Ambrose Owens.

Yeah. I like that. We can call him Thunder for short.

But you are very correct in that the name will affect your child up to at least age 18, so it may not be a great idea to go ahead and name it Dalek Pennywise Anaconda or something in a similar vein.

You don’t want to be the awful parent that got your kid’s ass kicked daily on the play ground, do you? Of course you don’t. Your kid will hate you by the time he’s ten.

Have some chicken and a smile.

@The Drawing:
Yeah, I think a lot of it is just that the view is at a weird angle. It looks pretty good now though.

I really (really) wish I could draw at all… Unfortunately, all I can do is look in wonder at what other people can do.

@Chickens
That reminds me of this picture from back when that Halloween meme was a thing…
