I still find it strange that this actually seems to be a common pairing. Is it just JJ or was it more of a case of “I like Derpy… I like Luna… I like lesbians… HEY I HAVE A BRILLIANT IDEA!”?

GIMP is really good and will serve your basic needs very well. Personally, I prefer the UI of Photoshop and would prefer to have that if I could, but it costs money – something I don’t exactly have right now. GIMP is still more than enough for what I need.

Also, if I might digress a little, I found something on a site that recently got a KYM page, it asks would you rather be a pony or a doll?
I personally put down pony because I at least get to still be a living being but I’d honestly rather say neither because, well…
…I DON’T WANT TO BE A LESBIAN HORSE!!

Seriously, I really love my humanity, being something else would really be a life-ruiner for me.
Though I would totally bet that everyone here will pick pony without a second thought and at least a few will find it bizarre that I find the idea of being a pony myself so unpleasant.

GIMP is free. a freeware shop download. all it takes is practice

I tried downloading GIMP the other day cause I needed an EULA for a poem I was writing, but it downloaded a zip file with a bunch of useless files Windows can’t run. This was from the official GIMP site so it wasn’t like it was a virus or something. Why they can’t just have an Install Shield file to download I don’t know. It wasn’t important anyway as I already use Paint.NET (which is also free and isn’t a pain in the ass to install) for my photoshop needs. The simpler to use, the better (remember: half-an-hour to draw a circle in Photoshop).

Imgur is free. a image host and macro meme maker. anyone can do it.

I just use Photobucket (and Flickr for my massive pic dumps that exceed a gig). Not sure if it has a meme maker or not.

I sense a Twilestia thread coming on…

No you don’t. What you sense is an OTP, aka Twiluna Thread, incoming.

@Kewln00baloo’s disgusting image
Downvoted. Saged. And reported.

Also, because nobody cares about S4, have some synopses, including one that’ll no doubt make Deadparrot very happy.

Title: Daring Don’t
Air Date: 12/07/13.
Synopsis: When Rainbow Dash discovers that the new A.K. Yearling book she has been eagerly anticipating is delayed, she recruits her reluctant pony friends to spring into action to ensure the book gets written. However, when the ponies arrive to help the famous author, they soon discover that A.K. Yearling has a secret that sends Rainbow Dash and her pony friends on an unexpected mission.

sniff So much for my “Twilight’s mom” headcanon. Looks like the comics canonical status has taken a hit too.

Title: Flight to the Finish
Air Date: 12/14/13
Synopsis: Rainbow Dash is over the moon to be coaching the young ponies in Scootaloo’s class for their competition to carry the flag at the upcoming Equestria Games. Just as the Cutie Mark Crusaders find their rhythm, Diamond Tiaras taunting becomes too much to handle and Scootaloo begins to doubt herself and her team.

I don’t see anything about Scoots being unable to fly so maybe the feels will have to wait. I really don’t want Scootabuse to gain any canonical leverage. I can just see the “how did she become disabled” abuse fics spamming Fimfiction.

Title: Power Ponies
Air Date: 12/21/13
Synopsis: When Spike and the Mane 6 end up as
superheroes in a comic book world, the only way to get back home is to defeat
the super-villain, The Mane-iac.

Title Bats!
Air Date: 12/28/13
Synopsis: Vampire Fruit Bats take over Sweet Apple Acres and
Applejack and her friends’ efforts to get rid of them take an unexpected and
frightening turn.

Looks like we’re not getting a Christmas break this year, and I gotta say, that’s a horrible episode title. Who came up with that, anyway?

>yfw Rarity fans will have to wait until 2014 for her to get an episode

Yet another reason Twilight’s (canonically confirmed!) best pony. She doesn’t have to wait two years to get an episode.

From GIMP’s Website:

The Windows installer packages by Jernej Simončič are now distributed from the GIMP FTP server (ftp.gimp.org) and its mirror servers. The ads on the previously used site have tricked too many users into downloading wrong apps or installers that have been tampered with, so we decided to cut that out.

I’d say give them another try. You shouldn’t have had to download a .zip, It should have been an .exe like I got when I installed it on my new comp a week or two ago. You should be able to get it here for windows, just make sure you get the current 2.8.8 .exe and not md5.

@Image editing

You know all the graphics I drew? Those were all done using GIMP and another free drawing program called Inkscape. Been a proud GIMP user for years.

I highly recommend Inkscape for free pony vectoring and of course GIMP works just as well as photoshop for all your editing needs (once you get used to it). For instance I can use GIMP when I want to add shading/highlighting to the vectors that I make in Inkscape

So once again, you don’t need photoshop if you want to get into making gifs and vectors

You really think the infinite spectrum of one being’s capacity for love can be adequately expressed in their love for just one being?

I look all around me, all the various possible pairings, and I see that not a single pairing can truly express every kind of Love one being can express…

So what of all the other kinds of Love? Do you really ask of a being to throw away any possibility to express all the love they have to give? To ask of those who cannot even have HALF of their gamut of potential for love to rip out whatever part of their heart does not serve the interests of a single clingy partner that can’t conceive of sharing?

There is no such thing as “The One”. And I’ve grown tired of that concept, as it is impossible for a single being to cover all the various forms of love I would seek out. Heck, they would barely cover ONE kind of love before I find them incapable of showing me other kinds of love.

So what would you have me do? If I fall in love with two different girls, and find myself equally attached to both, and each evokes a completely different kind of love… Would you ask me to rip half my heart out and abandon not only that kind of love, but the lover it corresponds to? Leaving us both heartbroken? Leaving what love I have for the one chosen to be poisoned with resentment over losing part of one’s self and the one cared about?

No being on heaven or earth has the right to tell me to destroy half of my own soul just to fulfill an outdated form of chivalry. So I cannot abide by your opinion.

That is all.

We’re working on implanting a Spoiler tag, like the NSFW tag we currently already have, but can’t confirm yet when this will go up. Might take a couple of weeks though, based on how quickly discussion flows.

How did it get leaked? Most likely someone was over at Hubworld and found a back door. It was most likely set up early with a schedule time to release sometime after the Saturday airing. Or you could be like a good chunk of /mlp/ and blame EFN for dropping the ball again.

Yeah, basically. Stop being a tramp and just pick. I know it’s hard but you gotta choose.

No being on heaven or earth has the right to tell me to destroy half of my own soul just to fulfill an outdated form of chivalry.

Nah, quite the opposite, pretty much everyone with a brain gets to tell you to stop being slutty.
Oh, and “outdated form of chivalry” beats out trampy STD-ridden new age hippie nonsense 10 times out of 10. This isn’t like having several “waifus” or jerking to whatever fictional character takes your fancy at the moment, in real life you have to be dedicated and make a choice.

Now, for everyone else, have a pony!

>Debating polygamy in a thread about cartoon horses.

While I’m more of a one-woman man myself, and do indeed feel like monogamy is for the best for me personally, I’m not going to pass judgment on Lunar or tell him that he’s wrong, and I’m sure as fuck not going to unnecessarily call him names. Dial it back, son, that kind of behavior is uncalled for, even if you do disagree with him.

In any case, my personal opinion on polygamy and extra-marital relationships: it depends.

  • Polygamy is 100% okay as long as all parties involved are 100% okay with it. This should be a no-brainer, considering all parties involved need to be okay with it to be married in the first place…
  • Extra-marital relationships are 100% okay as long as all parties involved are 100% okay with it.

The capacity for someone to get hurt is too great when they’re kept in the dark. Every person you’re in a relationship with deserves to be aware that you’re in multiple relationships, and they need to find it acceptable.

If having a multiple relationships was wrong, that would be the reason why. It’s just plain not okay to hurt people with lies, so they need to know.

You make an excellent point. In the end, it really all comes down to consent. If everyone’s cool with it, it should be allowed to happen. There’s actually a great real-life example in this very fandom: Glasmond, Schpog, and MissCherry. I don’t really see anything wrong with polygamy.

@Image editing
As for making MLP images and what software to use, Adobe software is the industry standard software to use when creating digital art. If you’re just trying to rough something out without it looking too great, then I usually just use Photoshop for that, since it does the job. Though for people who want to make professional images, like for commission, then the lines have to be 100% straight and it has to look like just it does on the show and this can be done by using Adobe Illustrator. Once you’ve drawn the outlines, you can then take it over to Photoshop and create a new layer, change the layer to multiply and start colouring it. Learning how to use the software is really easy since there are so many tutorials on Youtube and once you learn one Adobe program, moving on to another one becomes much easier. I personally started with Photoshop, and then from there, I learnt Illustrator and then Adobe Flash and then After Effects, though that worked for me, it depends on the person. I know the software is pricey which is a main issue for people who don’t have any money like myself, ways to get around the price can be finding locations that have the software, so if you are at school/college/uni then there might be software there, or.. there are Other means of getting the software

:

Which is probably the most likely way that people get the software who don’t have thousands of pounds/dollars to throw around.

@Spoilers
I’d probably avoid watching it till airdate, since no MLP in HD makes me go something.. something.. Though I feel Kewln00b makes a good point about spoilers, and how if the episode is leaked in some way or another, the spoiler rule should still apply until the episode officially airs. I don’t know if anyone’s keeping track of these spoiler rules, but yeah.. if it hasn’t been already, that should be added.. to the KYM bill of rights.

@Season 4 Premiere
Great episodes! loved the flashback scenes, though I wished they’d had been longer, though maybe in future we’d see more of the sisters past. I’m happy with what they had done with Discord, how he’s not good or bad, he’s becoming more like Q everyday, it’s beautiful. I would have liked a song in the episode, but I know it wouldn’t have fitted. The wait for a musical number continues!

@Polygamy
As a time traveler, you start to loose track of who you’re married to and when you married them.. I think I’m currently in 3 marriages, one with Monroe, one with Queen Elizabeth the first, and one with River Song.. There’s probably more.. I don’t know. Time Travel.

It did took quite some back and forth arguments to be honest. As you are stating here, as a site for meme documentation, we don’t really have to offer such services. This led to not all mods agreeing with the idea and finding it a waste of time, one of them being myself.

But user demand was high and constantly rising with shows like Attack on Titan getting popular image galleries, and some mods brought up good arguments on how such a system wouldn’t really hurt the site either. The staff was cool with it, so I realized as well it couldn’t really hurt to implant it.


@Monogamy vs. Polygamy discussion

Are you guys done goofing around? This is a ponei thread. If you feel like this is a topic worth discussing, start a seperate thread, and I’ll be happy to share my opinion on the topic there. But this is ponei, so you post ponei.

And you seem to have repeated that one question/issue a bunch so this is probably also going to sound like the same answer being repeated too.

There is no such thing as “Non Romantic Love” as far as this issue is concerned.

A love for a companion is just as romantic for me as the love of a rival. Both relationships WILL end in undying affection and loyalty.

As for family? I would never dream of sharing any of my kinds of love with them because that would be Incest.

Then the character in question gets to “hook up” with one and be friends with the others.
Or you could just explore the different pairings in different stories/pictures/whatever.

One cannot “Just be Friends” with several love interests, the heart cannot remove those feelings just because they made a move on one set of feelings.

As for exploring in different stories, that’s kinda not how reality works, so I couldn’t possibly expect that to be a proper way of going about it.

…I guess? I don’t really follow what you’re asking here.

Yeah, basically. Stop being a tramp and just pick. I know it’s hard but you gotta choose.

There is romance based around passion, and romance based around comfort, romance based around partnership, and romance based around respect.

…And more, each of them equally romantic.

If you go for monogamy, you cannot feel all of these things. A comfortable romance will never ignite blazing passion. a passionate romance will hardly ignite partnership.

And to me, all those feelings of romance are there, and if I gave up one, it would be as painful as asking me to stab myself with a sword right through my own heart. It would be like asking me to kill my own feelings.

So why? Why throw my heart away to a single romance if it will be poisoned with longing for something else as well?

The relationship will not last long if I did.

And if you were to to make me choose? What then? Would have have me just comfortable about life and love instead of passionate about it?

This isn’t something that can just be covered by a “Red Mage” of romance. I could find a “White Mage” to love, and they’d only cover a fraction of the emotional need as they only heal, I also need the “Black Mage” who’s passion and power is inspiring, and the “Knight” who can protect me. And from what I can tell, the only thing close to the “Red Mage” of this scenario are the ones who are completely aromatic because they are capable of sustaining those emotions themselves.

in real life you have to be dedicated and make a choice.

….At the cost of that choice always being the wrong one.

If you make a choice and decide to chose one over the other when you had the option to chose both, you damn it unnecessarily.

You can save one country, the other, or both. And choosing either one of the other in that situation is cruel, just a pitiful waste of human life.

… Oh and let me make one thing perfectly clear,

Nah, quite the opposite, pretty much everyone with a brain gets to tell you to stop being slutty.

This is not about sex.

This is about the fact that without others I may as well be a hollow shell. Without an entire battalion of other viewpoints and emotions surround me I’m not even half human. It’s about the fact that when I’m alone, I feel dispassionate, uncomfortable, and unammused.

This is about the fact that If I chose to only spend time with one person I will be a half being, forever putting on a hollow facade in order to mask the fact I only feel one thing instead of the other things I want to feel as well.

Those I love are the foundations of my identity, and that love is inevitably romantic. If I gave up my connections to others, I would cease to have anything.

…I would just exist… No heart left, no soul left……

…And then I would die of loneliness.

Do you get it now? The fact is I may as well be a changeling. Because that’s pretty much how it works for me. I feed off others affection for me to fuel my own feelings, and without them I starve to death as the pain tears through what’s left of me, and a single being’s affection is hardly enough for me to keep alive.

And don’t try to argue that people aren’t really like that… This is the ONLY thing that is the real me. Everything else is borrowed.

The real me… Is a Soul Stealer… A Thief of Heart that feeds off those around them.

Without that… I’m just a catatonic lump of dead weight, unable to muster the will to do anything, or to bother to keep living.

None of that… Requires Sex. What it requires, is YOU.

Excuse me for feeling neurotic about the only thing that I really am being put under attack here.

It did took quite some back and forth arguments to be honest. As you are stating here, as a site for meme documentation, we don’t really have to offer such services. This led to not all mods agreeing with the idea and finding it a waste of time, one of them being myself.

But user demand was high and constantly rising with shows like Attack on Titan getting popular image galleries, and some mods brought up good arguments on how such a system wouldn’t really hurt the site either. The staff was cool with it, so I realized as well it couldn’t really hurt to implant it.

^Pone.

I’d love to Pone but for some reason when I go on Derpibooru NOTHING is filtered for some reason, don’t know why I used to be able to go onto Derpibooru and I’d have Suggestive, Grimdark, Foalcon (A LOT more foalcon spoiler tags than any sane person needs to see, seriously guys what the fuck is up with the influx of Filly Fooling?) AND spoilers blocked out. Now suddenly none of that is blocked so now when I try to look up something I see a bunch of pictures from the leaked episode that I don’t want to see.

What the fuck is going on here now?! I don’t want to use Pone images from the KYM image gallery because it’s not specific enough as you can’t look up say ‘Sweetie Belle, Smiling, truck’ on the KYM image gallery. Besides, I already poned when there was no pone to speak of.

I’m actually surprised we haven’t had any accidental spoilers from people who forgot how to spoilertag…….Platus

After all… What a missed opportunity it would be if Twilight, the link between Day and Night, was not in at least a Love Triangle with Celestia and Luna… There are so many stories that can be conjured from that.

The Stare Master said:

Holy drunken Celestia! Any backstory on how this got out? The hub just lost their ratings for this saturday.

The going theory is that Hasbro uploads their episodes onto Hubworld.com early and someone has been able to find a hole in the site’s coding and download the episode directly from Hubworld. It’s also how we got those screenshots from the premiere and this episode--someone downloaded it, and instead of uploading onto a site, decided to live up to OP’s reputation and only brag about it. It’s also most likely how Everfree Network had their review early, as Hasbro never gave them a review copy of the premiere (and has most likely bitchslapped them for it).

If they don’t patch the site’s coding and keep on uploading the episodes early, expect leaks all season long…

Also,
>Hearts and Hooves Day gets leaked
>still has the best ratings of pony up to that point

Most bronies watch the pone on livestream or Yuotube anyway (although one of the best fanfic writers on Fimfiction, The Descendant, recently blogged that he was now one of Nielsen’s tv ratings people, so that should give ponies a bit of a boost).

We’re working on implanting a Spoiler tag, like the NSFW tag we currently already have, but can’t confirm yet when this will go up. Might take a couple of weeks though, based on how quickly discussion flows.

Cool, we’ll have it when Season Six: Alicorns are Magic starts up.

Then the character in question gets to “hook up” with one and be friends with the others.

Or, in the case of Stuck in the Middle, the readers start a civil war over who should get Twilight and the author is slowly driven insane trying to please everyone, and instead, pleasing no one. It was one of the best fanfic clusterfucks I’ve ever been a part of. I never knew a story could implode so much…

…oh, this was a serious topic about polygamy. I thought we were talking about Twilunestia and the adorkable panic Twilight goes through in picking one or the other (always go with Luna, aka “the one who gets omnicidal when jealous of her sister”).

Speaking of princess shipping, when I eventually write my Twiluna clopfic (filled with lots of dream sex between Twilight and her subconcious’ rendering of Luna, of course), I intend on using my headcanon that the princesses are really virgins and are horribly awkward and cute when it comes to romance as nopony has ever asked them out because they’re Equestria’s Immortal God-Empresses and so, are too scared to.

@Spoiler spoilering

What did I do? I’ve only posted two things in this thread since the episode was leaked, and neither of them had any spoilers in them. And none of the images I’ve uploaded to the gallery have anything spoilery in them either. :(

@Sexually awkward princesses

That actually sounds tremendously cute. With the kind of relationship we see in JJ’s Ask Molestia blog, where Molly is basically the goddess of sex and Twilight knows next to nothing, it would be neat to see things shaken up.

@TSG and Spoiler tags

Pretty much, at this rate.

Hint guys: the more apparent it is that people are demanding this feature, the more likely we’ll go through with this. So if it’s something you really want to see to prevent these leaks ruining your day, don’t just sit there and sarcastically snark about how nobody is going to use it. Speak up and say “Yes, I think that’s a good idea and would use that”.

I’ve been advocating the Spoiler tag, but not because lots of spoilers get posted here and they rustle up my poor unfortunate jimmies. I don’t care about that. I advocated it simply because people asked for it. People who saw the spoilers and kindly said “Can we please have spoiler tags?”. That’s the key to getting this job done

inb4 no one uses it and spoilers continue to abound

One suggestion that has been passed is to allow Scrapbookers (anyone with KYM account that uploaded enough images) to be able to flag Spoilers just like how they can already flag NSFW images, allowing the spoiler process to be self policing. Might be crazy enough to work
