So… Here’s A scenario…

Pinkie Pie has gotten a hold of a time machine, and is looping back into the same day over and over and generally filling Ponyville up with her Chrono-clones. Which are literally just her except from the future, so no magic pool stuff.

At Midday, the entire town is turned into a mosh-pit of Pinkie Pies…

What would be the easiest way to deal with the crisis without the time paradoxes causing even more shenanigans?

Also, looks Like I get to be in on this thread from the start! Happy New Thread Day EveryPony!

Something I’ve been curious about

Local Ponyville pegasi

Hopefuls for joining Equestria’s elite flying team.

Doesn’t anyone find it odd that a little earth pony town happens to be home to such a high number of flying aces? Wouldn’t this be kind of like half of the rookies in the NBA coming from Oshkosh, Nebraska? I mean hell, I’ve counted five ponies from Ponyville

Rainbow Dash
Cloud Chaser
Blossomforth
Snowflake
Thunderlane

at the wonderbolt academy. And those are just the ones I could name, I’m pretty sure I saw a few others from Ponyville there as well.

So, who’s got a good headcannon explanation for why so many pegasus athletes live in Ponyville?

@Fifth’s Top Athlete Pegasi Question

Because if they lived in Clouds-dale… Or any city for that matter… There wouldn’t be much chance for flying practice as Cities are a bit too crowded for just flying around the place to be practical without getting into an airspace jam or otherwise running into something.

Ponyville is much more open. More room to fly… More chance to fly at high speed too, since in the cities I would imagine Officers/Guards would take offense to reckless flying.

As for why Ponyville Specifically, and not some other rural town… I imagine it’s because the other choices are hard living!

I mean, for open area towns, your choices are Ponyville and Appleoosa. And The latter is a dust bowl! Which makes you think that it’s not exactly the best conditions to start off your training in.

… Oh yeah, and there’s also Dodge Junction, but that’s just Appleoosa with a different name.

Apart from that there are no other places I can recall where a Pegasi can just train whenever they want. So Ponyville it is.

Seriously though, it feels like there’s not that many locations in Equestria. We need to see some of the locations other than what we’ve seen so far…

Wasn’t there a place that was named something Holloween esque? Like… Sleepy Hollow?

Give me a sec…

Hollow Shades?

Yeah That one! Let’s see that one!

Since most of the pegasi mentioned are only there for the water-nado or the Academy, I’d say they’re probably not from Ponyville proper, but from various cloud formations nearby. RD doesn’t have a house in Ponyville, she just works there.

I’m gonna go with Serious Business’ theory. It’s pretty hard to say where exactly these pegasi live. We don’t really see them around ponyville much like you do with character like Lyra, Bon Bon, or Vinyl. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that they live in cloud formations near Ponyville like Rainbow Dash does, or they may even just live in Cloudsdale and come to Ponyville to help out on the water-nado because it seems that Cloudsdale and Ponyville are pretty close together.

We don’t have a proper map of Equestria (God I would love there to be one though), but I think it’s safe to assume that Cloudsdale is fairly close to Ponyville. I say this because there are a few small indications that it is close by, such as when Fluttershy falls from Cloudsdale in Cutie Mark Chronicles, she seems to land in the forest just outside of Ponyville where she establishes her cottage and assumes the job of being the caregiver for woodland creatures. And based on what we can see from Sonic Rainboom and Wonderbolts Academy, it seems that it does not take the non-pegasi of the mane 6 very long to make it to Cloudsdale via hot air balloon. It looks like it may take just a few hours to a day at most.

I just saw this post on 4Chan, it is something that I think could make a nice little Pony discussion.

Your favorite pony is forced to live through the life of the main character of the last video game you played before returning to their old life with only 5 minutes elapsed. How much PTSD affect their lives?

Well…Since I played Fallout 3 last that means Rainbow Dash is the Lone Wanderer…..now since I’m always playing as a shitty person in this game…….lol poor Rainbow Dash

@Fifts
Well, let us also make the simultaneous observation that none of those prospective Wonderbolts were seen anywhere around Ponyville prior to season two.
From that, we can say that they were all very good at hiding or that they are all relatively new residents to town.
If we assume the latter, we must then figure out why so many athletic pegasi would suddenly arrive in this small town.
But I think that answer is pretty obvious:

Yep, they are all there because of Rainbow Dash herself!
Look at it this way: A pony who is the new Best Young Flyer, an Element of Harmony, and a savior of the world lives, works, and trains for her career as a Wonderbolt in this little village.
All these other ponies with similar ambitions have now arrived in order to emulate (and maybe try to show up) the next big rising star in Equestrian athletics!

So, long story short, yes…
The world really does revolve around Rainbow Dash.

I like the theory that the Academy focuses on different cities/regions every year. I.e. this year it was Ponyville/[insert state/providence Ponyville is located in] and next year will be Fillydelphia, Cantelrot, Manehatten, etc.

I was just going to say that. All these other theories are pretty much over-complicating it.

@Deadparrot

I like this theory best, it appeals to my sensibilities concerning best pony. Of course, following the same logic, we would have to assume that quite a sizeable gathering of talented mages has taken up residence in Ponyville as well following after the sun goddess’ new apprentice.

Hmm…

So anyway, Psy’s new vid

Has the ponified version of this where they use actual pony tails been made yet, because I think I would enjoy that.

Ponyville is to flying as to Samoa is to pro wrestling. It can’t be explained, but the athletes from there just ooze of talent. (You forgot Flitter, by the way.)

Hey everyone, guess what? Today is the one year KYM birthday of everyone’s favourite New Zealand nice guy!

…waitwaitwait, let me try again. Today is the one year KYM birthday of everone’s favourite user with a Scootaloo avatar!

…okay last try. Today is the one year KYM birthday of everyone’s favourite user who is a commentator, has Rainbow Dash as their favourite pony, has connections to DeadParrot222 and has previously created a song for the forums based on the personalities of the users there to the tune of a musical number from “Magical Mystery Cure.”

Oh for f… IT’S ME!

Seriously though, I’ve been here for a year now and I have to say that it was a year well spent! This is without a doubt the best online community I could have ever asked to be a part of. Onward to two years!

I’d propose a challenge to try and get past 205 pages….Buuuuuuut I don’t know if that would get me in trouble……

Or if the fact that the mods will probably be more careful when we get to page 198.

I’m noticing a lack of Die Hard pony pics on this forum. I’ve seen maybe seven posts that have anything Die Hard related so far and only on the first page.

Well good goodness that thread sure did last a while.

If you ask me it’s a symptom of the declining fortitude of this fandom in general, but shucks buster, what the sweet sinister heck do I know?

Anywho, just wanted to pop in and say a quick congrats on the new digs. I no longer identify as a brony or wish to be a part of this movement whatsoever, but sometimes it’s nice to look in here and see some nice, safe, nothing-weird-going-on-at-all discussion being conducted by grown-ass men about colorful ponies.

Well, see y’all some other time.

Oh and by the way: Twilight Sparkle is and always will be the cutest smartest all around best pony and don’t you fucking forget it.

Okay… I just had a crazy line of thought… But I’m not sure it’s lining up right… So I’m going to see if you guys can fill in the blanks in the crazy thought.

In Season 1 Episode 2, Pinkie Sung her First Song. Twilight questions why she’s singing, every other pony present is slightly confused as well.

In Season 2 Episode 26, Queen Chrysalis and Cadence Sing an Aria at the top of their Lungs and nobody notices for some odd reason. Adding to it is the fact that they manage to both be singing the same song more or less and aren’t interrupting each-other.

Between these two, Pinkie Makes an over the top song that seems to bend reality, to the point everypony has joined in, and yet afterwards it’s like it never happened. This song… Is the Smile Song.

So… Can we blame Pinkie for spontaneous Music that nopony seems to notice? Has she made some kind of side dimension where Musical scenes take place?

What do you think? Is the connection there? Or is this “Too Crazy”?

Not sure if sincerely think Rarity best unicorn,
Or making crack about how she wins that by default by being the only unicorn left in the mane six.

Still…

Okay, I’ll be honest. I do like Rarity, a lot, actually, but she’s just my least favorite of the Mane Six.


@Stunthead:


Hey, guys, if you were a pony, what would you look like? I actually made myself in Pony Creator . My cutie mark was made in Paint.

My cutie mark is a football because I play halfback for my high school team.


We should have another chat tonight. What do you guys think?

Unless you can draw yourself as a pony, people have no confirmed pony form. Pony Creator is completely ridiculous, mainly because of all the black and red pony, Alicorn, or rainbow maned “OC’s” people create. Sure it’s a good start to create yourself as a pony, but if you can draw yourself as a pony, than you are your own artist and Pony Creator, not some computer software. I draw the occasional pony, but NONE of mine are Alicorns, black or red coated, or rainbow maned ponies people have spammed (though I did draw one Pegasus with fire for their mane and tail, whose cutie mark is a Phoenix, because I love the Phoenix).

I’m not good at drawing. I’m more of a writer, and I may start a brony webshow soon. Any ideas for names?

Wouldn’t that also >imply that fanfics and fanart are equally ridiculous due to the number of self insert/Mary Sue stories/art that exist? Sturgeons Law is universal.

@Self as Pony

I can’t figure out how to limit that sort of stuff to just ONE pony…

…And when I inevitably try, the identity’s of the ponies split off from me fairly quickly.

At this point, I’ve kinda given up trying to depict myself as a pony…

…And now… I think the only way to tether my personality to a single character is to make that character an entire Universe. (Which would inevitably populated by many other ponies.)

Anything else is just an incomplete projection. Especially when any visual elements I could use, would ultimately be borrowed imagery rather than spontaneously generated.
