Guys, I found a startling revelation!

Twilight was actually Twilight the whole time!

Oh wow, I really started a new page with this?

Source – A.V. Club

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic feels too innocent to be critiqued. The show is ostensibly aimed at 2- to 11-year-old girls, though one of the quiet triumphs of the program is how many fans from other demographics it has garnered in the last three seasons. It’s saturated with cuteness: pink, sparkly unicorn horns and long, flowing rainbow manes. Every problem is resolved through the strength of friendship, rulers are kind and merciful, and good ponies always get a happy ending.

Also, there are horse jokes. Lots of horse jokes. The main setting is the kingdom of Equestria. The capital is Canterlot. Married couples are proclaimed colt and filly, rather than husband and wife. And as they drive away in their car (no word on the horsepower of the engine), horseshoes are tied to the bumper, clanking on the cobblestones.

It’s delightfully silly, if also a little grating. But that attention to detail has made My Little Pony one of Hub Network’s biggest hits. The two-part “Canterlot Wedding” drew the most viewers of any Hub program, and the show’s resonance with wider audiences has made it a popular cultural touchstone (see: the adult, largely male fandom known as “bronies”).

In its fourth season, the show attempts to shift gears, and though that makes for a premiere that is less thrilling than My Little Pony’s finest episodes, it could set up a season that is better than ever. At the close of the third season, protagonist Twilight Sparkle became a princess and an alicorn--a unicorn with wings. She now has duties and responsibilities associated with her royal title, and as such, she can’t spend as much time with her friends from Ponyville, the five other ponies that round out the show’s regular cast.

That’s quite an impasse for a show subtitled Friendship Is Magic. But it’s also an interesting one: The show’s strongest moments explore the complex subtext of female friendships through what appears to be a juvenile lens. Yet there’s an insidiousness about constantly championing the group over the individual: Like many narratives targeted to young girls, there are never any heroes in My Little Pony, championing some versions of girl power at the expense of others. No pony accomplishes something alone that she would not have done better with her friends present. It makes for some curious contradictions: Even though Twilight Sparkle’s mentor, Princess Celestia, is always pushing her to learn more from her friends, Celestia herself doesn’t seem to have any. What happens to all your friends between childhood and adulthood?

“Princess Twilight,” the fourth-season opener, gets into that dynamic by pushing Twilight Sparkle in one direction and the other five ponies in another, only to pull them back together when their kingdom is in crisis (though it’s worth noting that Equestria is always in crisis). It’s not the best episode. The chimera Discord isn’t the show’s strongest adversary, and the premiere’s plot twist is a pun on the idiom “sowing the seeds of discord.” The threat isn’t that scary, and there’s also a problematic African-queen zebra that offers some portents in rhyming couplets.

But for once, even though the other ponies are present, it’s Twilight herself who has to do most of the work. Even though she’s often the pony who solves the riddle or finds the missing clue, she’s joined with her friends to fight off the attackers. In “Princess Twilight,” she has to do a lot of the grunt work on her own.

At the end of the episode, Twilight Sparkle finds a box with six keyholes, which will presumably require each of the six friends to find and produce a key. It’s hard not to feel a surge of joy for Twilight, knowing that she’ll be able to spend time with her friends, instead of worrying about the fun they’re having without her. But it’s also encouraging that the show is doing something different with the idea of female friendship. It’s doubtful that My Little Pony will be swearing off pink-and-purple castles anytime soon. But considering friendship between women is a difficult subject for even adult shows, it’s lovely to see the work happening in Equestria.

Looks like I scored lunch for a week! And it was all thanks to having a long exhausting day at work where I went straight to bed instead of the shower


I swear to god I can never win these things man! It’s like I almost get a whole Bingo but then I get a blank right there ruining my bingo and a chance for a Spaghetti dinner (granted, I’d have to drink it if I wanted to eat it) This guy makes it so it should be hard for anyone to ‘lose’ this but somehow I lose. Goddammit I need to start reading fanfics….and enjoying them.

Ahh, it’s not a day on Ponythread until we can all get together and poke fun at Autism. I think I speak for everyone here when I say there’s a special place in hell reserved for us, where the only thing on TV is G3.5 of My Little Pony and all Satan talks about is how much he hates Twilicorn.

In a less serious note, I had a dream about Season 4 last night. I had a dream that the premiere was a THREE Parter, but for some reason they played the third part first then the first part and then the second part. The Third part sucked ass so there were mass Brony Suicides. Personally I didn’t flip my shit until I found out that they gave Mandopony a major role in the three parter. After that I had my jimmies rustled…..at least my dream didn’t end with Jesus killing me (believe it or not that’s a recurring element in my dreams, I have no fucking clue why he keeps killing me.)

On an actual serious note, with Season 4 seriously a few days away it made me remember that one of my favorite moments of the fandom had to be the day before Season 3 premiered where I joined one of those Synchtubes (R.I.P.) and had a marathon of all Season 1 and 2 episodes with a select few people. It was fun times, pointing out how different the show was in the beginning and how it felt more ‘girly’ and ‘kiddish’ than later episodes, making fun of how Applejack just blended into the background and how we FINALLY understood the “Applejack is a background pony” joke, making Friendship is Witchcraft quotes during the episodes that they parodied over the actual dialogue, to complaining about sitting through so much pone.

All in all it was a great time, I’m thinking we should try a stream the day before Season 4 premieres. I’d post a link to Togethertube right now but the website is down and I don’t think we’ll be able to do it anyways due to you all having lives and I’m still bed ridden so I have nothing better to do. But still, it’s a good idea am I right? It’s not? Well fuck you.

Ahh, who can forget the day when we assumed everyone who lagged out died and then I suggested we’d eat the dead bodies. I have never quickly resorted to cannibalism as much as I did that day, I mean holy shit I think I suggested that we eat everyone’s body at one point or another. NOW imagine if we were making threats of cannibalism AND making fun of Applejack being a background pony at the same time! The Results would be amazing, although Togethertube doesn’t have little Pony emoticons like Synchtube had. I mean hell we were just spamming those things and we realized the only Rarity emoticons were of her crying hysterically.

We definitely need a stream. We can get Jimmy involved and see how fast we can make him ragequit from the constant Applejack background pony jokes. Then I can eat his dead body.

Eh, I don’t think autistic is really an insult within the fandom itself, it’s always more been from the anti-bronies that can’t think of anything clever and resort to the classic “BRONIES ARE AUTISTIC. I’M SO MUCH COOLER, RIGHT GUYS. RIGHT?” Didn’t Tara even specifically tweet about her distaste for the use of the term as an insult?

Oh trust me, it’s used quite a bit within the fandom. Especially when the ponyfags on /mlp/ talk about bronies which makes your exaggerated comment of “BRONIES ARE AUTISTIC. I’M SO MUCH COOLER, RIGHT GUYS. RIGHT” still relevant when it comes to this. You’ve never seen a page on the internet mention autism so many times until you go on an average /mlp/ thread. I saw a post saying “How many autism points do I get if I form my hair into a unicorn horn in the shower with my shampoo?” You’ll see Autism thrown around by bronies/ponyfags as much as (if not more) than Anti-Bronies.

Nobody is saying that it is. It’s just a silly game that means nothing really. All it does it point out who hasn’t showered today


@Crash

So do I. But I’m able to joke about myself ;)

“Autism” as an insult is really stupid. I hate that 4chan started using it now that they have exhausted “Nigger” and “Fag” to the point of having no insult potential. I don’t think highly of anyone who calls people “autistic” with a serious face

But on the other hand, I find it kinda funny saying that the whole fandom is autistic. The insinuation is so silly that I can’t take it seriously. I’ve got no problem using it ironically. The key to taking the offense out of a word is to own it for yourself, I say.

(It get’s even funnier when I consider the amount of people I know in the fandom who honestly are autistic. Surprisingly quite a few! Though nowhere near average)

I would like to go on record saying a few things:
1. I would never use “autistic” as an insult, because it is insensitive
2. I may, at times, use “retard” as an insult, however, I am not refering to any person or persons with any form of mental illness, but rather those who are mentally all there, but act as though they have mashed potatoes inside of their skulls. I would never ever use the word to describe someone in an unfortunate situation.
3. If the things I say offend you because you think they are insensitive, I apologize. I try not to offend (most) people too badly (unless they are from PETA), and anything I say is in fun, and not serious. also, I only insult my friends, so take it as a compliment. However, if I cross a line, call me out on it and I’ll apologize.

in other news, I watched seven episodes of pone today with a new brony. we finished season one, may start season 2, and are trying to finish before season four starts. anyone else doing a re-watch?

@Dontmesswithme

You’re all good bro. Don’t worry about it.

The times I have seen people use “autistic” as an insult; I have seen it no differently from people using “nigger” and “faggot” in an ironic sense. In fact, the context and handling of the term is pretty much identical to all the other “Im-using-this-unrelated-word-to-negatively-paint-this-abstract-concept” slang terms. And likewise I’m not going to take it that personally, since I know the actual intent is less than meaningful.

But I will regard people using the word as a serious insult to be pretty immature

I usually never use highly offensive insults since they lead to huge misunderstandings. Once, I told a joke about disabled people in a swimming pool so, I received a black eye and a punch in the gut for being a cheeky bastard. Lesson learned the hard way, thus the reason I hardly use strong insults IRL. On the internet however, I don’t take anything personal.

@Blue: Are you sure? Because it always sounds 100% sincere as an insult to me. And after all the people IRL who seem to dismiss my opinion because of my disability, it really rather hurts,
And honestly the “owning the word” stuff doesn’t ring true to me, it makes no sense for a word to suddenly stop being offensive because it’s now being used in a DIFFERENT kind of offensive joke.
I must admit the stuff with the n-word is the same. Sometimes people make the ironic usage entertaining but it still doesn’t make sense. Plus it’s crazy for the same word to be hugely offensive and not offensive at the same time.
And honestly, I don’t really think there’s a way to take offense out of a word, so it’s better just to retire it. It’s not like we’re short on insults to use instead.

I have to say this:
It’s not so much that you have to “own up” to the word, or be able to joke about it. It’s about not allowing the word to define you. You are a person, and no one can put you in a box, unless you let them. Don’t be defined by your shortcomings, push through them, show them you are bigger than that. I am adopted (I was adopted at birth, so I never had a connection with my birth mother). I’ve had people make fun of me for for it before, because “my birth mother didn’t love me”, “I was given away”, etc. but I just look them in the face and say “so? My parents picked me, they’re stuck with you.” When people realize that you accept who you are and that your more than just one thing, it shuts them down cold. I have a friend with Aspergers, an he has some limitations. However, he is blessed with perfect pitch, and is amazingly talented at the piano. He using this gift to tune pianos, and doesn’t let his shortcomings effect him.
Anyway, tl;dr.

Yes I am sure.

I know for a fact that “autism” is not used 100% as an insult. It’s used ironically more than not. I even used it ironically myself on the last page.

Who are the people that use it as an insult? Kids. Kids who don’t have the slightest clue. They probably think it’s the awesome cool “ultimate putdown, oooooh scary!” and don’t even understand what it actually means…that and channers. But thats just how channers say hello. I’m too secure about myself to let dumbass kids rustle my jimmies

Besides, “Retard” used to be there. So was “Gay”.

I remember when “gay” was the cruelest thing you could call kids in the playground. Now it’s a word that gets used with pride. There is DEFINITELY a way to take the offense out of a word. It’s already happened

“owning a word” is very, very real and it works. Don’t believe me? Ask the black community. “Nigger” was once a term white people made to remind them how low they existed in the social hierarchy. Now they call themselves that word all the time and wear it like a badge. They own the word. It’s theirs now. It’s only offensive when used offensively but the word itself has no sting

Same with “Fag”. I have many gay friends who have no problem calling themselves that word. Once again, they own it. It was once a word about hate and exclusion, now they use it to express themselves and tell the world they are here to stay. They own the word. Again, it’s only offensive when used that way…but so is any word

It makes perfect sense for words to suddenly stop being offensive when people start using it differently because the value of a word is controlled by its context. You should check out how many words in the english language completely changed meaning over the era’s. Did you know that “Girl” once meant “Boy”?

Change the context, change the offensiveness of the word. Why let some idiots upset me with blatant misuse of a word when I know that, like all word fads, it changes meaning in just a year?…especially if I force it to change in meaning and offensiveness by using it the way I’d rather see it used (which is to say, properly)

And at the end of the day, this is the internet. Words can hurt you, but only if you let them.

You can call me an autisticuglyvirginhomofagnutsstupidasshole, dickbastjerkfacemothereffingloserbags all you want until you explode in a shower of hatred…and I’ll just sit here in my cozy chair and smile in amusement as I read your hateful words in Alvin the Chipmunks voice

In context of MLP, it usually amounts to stories where a human turns into a pony… Alongside one specific other change… Where the character becomes female…

I’m afraid all the HiE stories I’ve favorited are either Conversion Bureau or “Humanity fucks up the Prime Directive” stories. The closest I can think of to that off the top of my head would be Five Score, Divided by Four aka “The story that had so many derivatives that the mods banned it, before mass jimmy rustling forced them to back down”. It wouldn’t be exact, though, as 1) it takes place on Earth, and 2) involves the humans turning into the Mane Six (there’s a plot twist that makes this far less cringy than it sounds). For the record, I haven’t actually read the story.

Anyways, if there’s some kind of Story where humans in some distant future start turning into ponies in some futuristic metropolis… That would be a cool story to check out…

I’m afraid I’ve yet to come across one like this.

I know, the white knights “Defenders” will be all over us, punishing us for our embarrassment for them.

The Third part sucked ass so there were mass Brony Suicides.

I knew the Cult of Faust would strike eventually. Honestly, if that were to ever happen, that would probably be enough for me to cut ties with the fandom. I don’t want to be interviewed on some Jonestown-esque Dateline special five years from now on how I survived by escaping into the bushes of /k/ for five days before a rescue team found me.

We’re drifting back into this conversation again. I thought we already spun this off into another thread?

I’m also glad I didn’t post that 4chan autism pic (which parodies a “autism symptoms” PSA pic by poking fun at the weird things the stick people are doing) as I think jimmies might have been jostled.

And yet, “nigger/nigga” this very paradox every day. What it boils down to is how the people react. If I’m called a “cracker,” I’m gonna go “oh, Triscuits do sound good.” When group A reacts negatively to a certain word, group B, which hates group A, is going to continue using it. If adults actually practiced the “sticks and stones” rhyme, it would kill most slurs.

What the hell, guys? Are we really too busy talking about complex English linguistics, and the ever evolving role of words and their definitions in the rapidly changing language that the internet has creating to realize that the Everfree Network herped the derp and posted a lengthy and extremely detailed review of the premiere that has generated a nice sized shitstorm on /mlp/ I can’t participate in because I’m avoiding the leak because it’s a massive spoiler?

I’m not going to be able to go on /mlp/ until after the episode airs because of this. sniff

Man, it’s like now I have no urge to go down the the KYM image gallery for MLP at the moment. It’s all just Spoilers and the same 4 people complaining about Twilicorn in every other picture. Hope I don’t miss out on any good porn……..I mean witty comics…….

Are your bodies ready? Last night mine was, because the ol’ club painted the Fence. In the extremely likely event that you don’t know what the CMU Fence is, basically it’s a fence (in a very visible and heavily traveled area of the school) that gets painted every few days by whatever organization that can claim it in order to display messages to the university, usually for upcoming events (when Bill Gates visited campus a few years back, one club painted it like a blue screen of death). It’s very thick with paint and as of today, pony things. Here is a more in depth explanation and history of the Fence from Wikipedia, in case you want to know more about random university traditions. And here are the images of our accomplishments:

We could only paint from 12AM to 6AM, and it took a few hours. We were playing whatever pony music we had on hand and it was very cold. Also, everyone had their plushies as you can see. The front of the fence faces a large open area of what is essentially our campus quad, but the back part isn’t viewed as much, so we went did what we usually do when left with spare art supplies and… well, you can see.

The “Wrong Neighborhood” face happens to be facing the doorway of the busiest academic building in school, so a lot of people saw that they were in the wrong neighborhood today. The “Welcome Princess Celest” part was my idea. We also drew a tree on the back of Fluttershy’s post. We painted the fence last year as well, the day before election day.


Tomorrow night we will go and eat a spaghetti dinner.
@Stunthead
I remember them days. Those days of being eaten due to internet problems. Those were the days.

I know what that is! My older brother is a Carnegie Mellon alumnus. He told me about it and he had posted a picture of him and some friends of his painting it during his freshman year. That’s pretty rad that you guys painted the fence like that.

After the Gak incident I think anything’s possible. For all we know they maybe making a brand new product that they’ve already bought the rights for 95% of the ad space for the season premiere. EXPECT ANYTHING.

@Repeat of Gak incident

Hehe…. I wonder what would happen if the repeat incident were something less squishy and was something that could actually be hurt.

…The art people make in frustration would be more violent than it wold be for gak, since gak is just goo… Which is impossible to damage without setting on fire. While a lot of other things are more damageable with hammers and stuff.

Ok, which one of you Kiwi motherfuckers bought all the Pony Merchandise at my local Livewire games?

Every single Vinyl figure has sold out IN ADDITION TO NEARLY ALL THE POP! Vinyl minis.

There’s just Twilight figure left. And she’s terrible. (THERE! I SAID IT VERBOSE!)

I WAS THIS CLOSE TO PASSIVELY AGGRESSIVELY REVERSE PHYSCHOLGYING MY WIFE TO BUY A FIGURE FOR ME!

I typed “kiwi motherfuckers” into Google Images and this is what I got:

On a totally unrelated note, what do you guys expect to see vis-a-vis the relationship between the show and the comics next season?

I know that there is probably not going to be any kind of crossover per se, but I’m thinking there might be some kind of tonal influence, with the show perhaps becoming a bit darker in response to the very successful comics. Also, with the comics being canon unless other wise specified, it is conceivable that they might introduce a bit of the backstory mentioned in the comics and then develop on it in some way – so, for instance, that teacher pony we saw in the Celestia story may show up and, while the show won’t say much about her, we’ll know a lot of her backstory and personality from the comics. At least, that’s the possibility that I see.

Just a word of warning. It appears somebody was able to acquire screencaps from Episode 3 and posted them on the Image Gallery.

We really need to get a dedicated spoiler tag. The NSFW tag won’t work as spoiler images aren’t NSFW and people would get pissed off clicking on a pic expecting futa and instead getting Scootaloo flying next to Dash.

Hey guys, It’s me! You know, that one kiwi guy. Yeah, you remember.
Anyway, exciting news! I recently got my first real bit of pony merchandise from a Livewire games! There was so much of it too, like, there had to be a dozen Vinyl figures IN ADDITION to a whole bunch of Vinyl minis, and I got every single one of them… well, other than one Twilight figure. I left it in case someone came in looking for pony stuff to buy, and EVERYONE loves Twilight, right?

I didn’t even really want the merch, I just figured it wouldn’t be too hard to find a use for them. Anyone have any ideas?
