Just so you know, I’m black.

Wait, really? You’re black? Why are my stereotypes mental images for what everyone looks like always completely wrong?!

When can I do a straw poll for the Thread Title Election?

Season 4. I honestly can’t wait to see some butthurt from the people going “But we complained all year about Alicorn Twilight! Why didn’t they turn her back into a unicorn?! We complained about it, they were supposed to obey our cries! Fuck you Meghan McCarthy!!!”

I really hope they turn her back into a unicorn for an episode, then have it be revealed it was just a dream Twilicorn was having right at the end. Then, I’ll be able to bask in the most delicious butthurt to ever come out of 4chan.

Everybody should already know the internet celebrity Tay Zonday have become a brony.

Sauce? I know he sang the theme song and all, but that doesn’t mean anything. He’s also sang Justin Bieber songs. Does that make him a “Belieber”?

@S4 Spoilers
I love the smell of worldbuilding in the morning. Even if it will slam some of the fanfics.

@TSG

When can I do a straw poll for the Thread Title Election?

Can’t wait for that shitstorm aye? You’ll be pleased to know I have great plans.

Page 170 is where I’ll start accepting new thread titles. They will be submitted as “contestants”. Contestant sign-up will close at, oh say page 190.

Then I’ll start Hurt/Heal: Pony Thread Naming Deathmatch Royale featuring all the competing thread titles where everyone will brutally slay off the contestants until we have a winner.

If you were expecting an election, you forget which mod you are dealing with.

We record announcements in the studio. The computer monitor on the right is to the character generator PC which is used to put pictures and overlays on top of the feed. That right screen in the rack with the picture of Dashie is the display of current output, to the left of that is the switcher feed. The displays up top are the camera feeds.

As xTSGx said, just because he sings the song doesn’t necessarily make him a fan.
He did however record a short ‘interview’ about it afterward.

Pretty non-committal on his part so I think it’s still a little difficult to tell if he is an actual fan of the show or just interested in the concept from an intellectual perspective.
Then again, he did have quite a bit of pony merch in that song video…
Would he have bought all that just for that one song?

Wait, I’m not totally on board with what’s going on here. Could I get a little context please?

I’m not sure how much you need but I’ll start from the top of the thread and explain downward:

1. Discussion about the TV tropes pony thread, continued from last page
2. More and more focus here is being put on the TV tropes pony thread community and their activity. The TV tropes community is in return, paying more attention to this thread. Macro’s that are made here, are being posted over there.
3. Some guys from TV tropes just made accounts here for this thread (Hi! Welcome!). Obviously a few posters here have met them already.
4. Discussion about the TV tropes pony thread and what happened to it, particularly its one time deletion. Apparently it was nuked by trolls during a mod security breach
5. The Doctors 50th anniversary gets a special mention, just so you know
6. Sweatie is trolling
7. Verbs is retorting.
8. You posted.

And here we are at the bottom of the thread

Any questions?

I was asking about Sweatie. mainly. But it’s probably best I don’t feed the troll.

Can’t complain. Getting pretty bored though, I’ve been at home without school for a couple of weeks now. Stopped with my study, continuing with an other one in February. So most of my time goes into TF2, Fallout 3 or guitar playing and internet.
Other than that, I’m not that active at the moment. Going to a concert is probably the only more interesting thing I’m going to do.
As this is a pony thread, have a pony.
It pretty much sums up how I’m feeling right now

Pretty sure Calpain graced us with his presence, we formed an allegiance with TV Tropes, we started talking about user races (I’m German-French, by the way), and now we’ve got something about Tay Zonday.

@Jimmy and the creppypone
Ah, that fic. ’T was gory, violent, but very will written. Probably my favourite pony fic in the grimdark style.
A close follower for me in grimdark style would be Rainbow Factory.

It’s just the whole atmosphere in it, so dark, but not as much graphic / gory content as in other stories in this genre. And those final words give it a powerful ending, they had a greater effect on me than the overload of gore in for example cupcakes etc.

remember it mentioned Twilight finding out about the source of the Elements? that sounds like Twilight gets to know more about the history of the Elements- which would include Nightmare Moon.

Doin’ pretty good. This semester’s been the easiest one so far. History class is great (the inability to view your grades, aside). Creative Writing kicks English 228’s ass (it didn’t help my 228 teacher was terrible). Economics 110 is a breeze. Geology kind of sucks with it’s three hour long class (twice a week), but the teacher’s good so it isn’t terrible (seriously, they need to split that class into smaller sections) (plus I get to trade puns with Deadparrot). I’ve learned that if you read through the study guide questions and do the practice tests, you’re pretty much guaranteed an “A”.

Oh, hai Cheerilee’s Garden cover image, which I see you took directly from Fimfiction. I knew I’d avoid that particular story when I read the comments and saw a debate over whether Scootaloo could actually be liquified when forced through a fine metal mesh.

Hey, look. An opportunity to whore myself out. Don’t mind if I do. I had a lot of fun making a [Comedy] fic out of Rainbow Factory. I kind of want to do it with the other major [Grimdark]s.

@Verbose spoiler edits
Wait, I thought you retired from mod duty? Either you’ve returned to form an Opposition Party to check the growing influence of Blue Screen and his non-manboobs or there’s some cool Shadow Moderator organization you’ve joined that answers directly to Emperor Huh and deals out justice when the banhammer proves insufficient.

I did not expect the Everfree Forest to become a plot point. That’s awesome and not something I’ve ever seen in non-prequel fanfics (I love it when they do things I’ve never seen). The NMM plot was already known, so that isn’t a suprise, but the “mysterious foe” is. I hope it isn’t really NMM as that would only confirm the Nightmarity comic and severely weaken Luna’s character (if she’s not responsible for what NMM did, than that erodes a substantial portion of her character and potential serves as a continuity snarl with Luna Eclipsed)

My guess? It’s all one big test by Celestia and Luna to see how the newly crowned Princess reacts to both a succession crisis (she’s the only ruler of Equestria with them gone) and a foreign threat to the country. The “mysterious foe” is either one of the Princesses in disguise or a loyal government official.

But no seriously he was spot on and now I’m scared, what else did he say that’ll be proven to be true in the future? Does he know when we’re all going to die? Does he know who the father of Applejack’s unborn child will be? (Hint, it’s Big Mac)

I thought that sounded familiar.
But there’s another thing that bugs me about /mlp/.
For every ‘correct’ spoiler posted, you have another hundred that are complete crap being presented as true (Remember “Discord is Starswirl!”).
By posting the actual synopsis without any supporting evidence beyond the usual ‘I know a guy who knows a guy who works for Hasbo,’ he must have known that no one would believe him which only leads me to the conclusion that he wanted to not be believed so that he could later come back with a smug ‘I told you so!’
Whatever the case, one good example in a thousand is no real reason to give up your skepticism.


@Rarity Hate

That’s right!
It’s that time again where everyone fights over Rarity!
Oh goodie!


In other news, Nightmare Night is nearly upon us and the MLP game has updated to give the main six ponies their costumes!
‘But wait!’ you say! ‘Only four of the main six were featured in costume in the original episode!’
Correct you are, sir!
Fear not, however, as Gameloft has provided!

Some may recognize Rarity’s outfit as the one seen in that leaked frame from Luna Eclipsed’s storyboard back before she wound up being replaced by Carrot Top.
And Bunny-shy is just adorable.

I wonder what kinds of costumes other characters might wear…


@Spoiler

I do recall hearing that Faust had wanted the Everfree Forest to be a ‘character’ of its own at times, so this actually looks like an idea that may have been around for some time.
I really like that they are finally going to do something interesting with this enigmatic, mysterious force of nature that even the most powerful of ponies fear.
Lots of material ripe for the picking there.

I have no idea who this ‘mysterious foe’ is, but also recall that the season premiere will be featuring the ‘return’ of Nightmare Moon (which we are all pretty much agreeing is a flashback that Twilight is experiencing).
I’m looking forward to seeing how that may factor in.

I’ve seen the theory a few times but all this evidence seems to be building toward something similar, so here it is again: We know that the old Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters lies deep in the middle of the Everfree and, until Twilight came along, also served as the resting place of the old Elements.

So… how about this?
This castle was Celestia and Luna’s home over 1000 years ago and the scene of Luna’s eventual betrayal.
As we know, Celestia was forced to use the Elements to stop Luna that first time so I’m thinking they had a big ol’ sister battle there in the castle, eventually ending with Celestia unleashing the ultimate power.
Perhaps blowing up your only sister (however justified) is seen as a rather ‘magically unharmonious’ thing to do, so as a result, the elements were turned to stone and the residual magic of the attack affected the forest in some crazy way, transforming into the uncontrollable region known today.
A combination of bad memories and the encroaching forest forces Celestia to abandon the castle and found Canterlot.

A story like that would be a great opportunity to explore Celestia and Luna’s relationship both then and now, a peek into the history (and possible origin?) of the elements, as well as a way to teach the newly-crowned princess that royalty isn’t all sunshine and rainbows.
If I wasn’t looking forward to the premiere already (I was), I certainly am now!
