So instead of creating a spin-off with no connection to the original show, they’re actually having the ponies go through a magical mirror into the human world? That’s horrible, the premise alone is fanfiction tier, not even considering how they’ll ruin the show’s canon with this move. And they’re already calling her “Princess Twilight Sparkle?” Just “Twilight” isn’t good enough anymore?

Maybe it’ll be like a Pokemon or DBZ movie where it is never mentioned or spoken of ever in the main show, and is just its own self-contained story (^_^;)………

Just noticed something about that synopsis: The last line, that was the same line used during Hasbro’s Toy Fair presentation when the last MLP slide was shown. How bad is this really going to be? Dunno, but I’m packing a helmet for this ride.

Like I said I’m looking at Equestria Girls with an open mind, btw Evna, I think that’s just the tagline they’re just sticking with honestly.

Besides we’re all forgetting one important piece of information: This has no effect on the rest of the show.

Hopefully the fans will embrace that line when season 4 begins. I’ve determined that if EqG is meh, I’ll probably one and done it. Though someone dropped a pic in the gallery a few days ago that actually gave me hope IF it was new art for the show. As for having no effect on the show, one pony into a mysterious portal, that could work. All six ponies, too many lips to keep sealed (especially Pinkie)

You forget, Evna, Pinkie is amazing at keeping secrets. Because once you tell a secret, you ruin a friend’s trust and you could lose that friend

@New EQG info or whatever

For some reason… The fact its called a “Special”, and not “series” has lowered my requirements on what would have to happen for me not to be completely disappointed.

…Mainly cause when I think “Special” I usually think of all those discontinuity “What IF”s. Along with the fact it will be approximately one episode, so it won’t have to hock us for long, just long enough (1 hour?)

It’s like saying “Schools out, lets have some fun because nobody really cares what we do right now.”

…Those are always fun… Especially the AU Specials. Those are just crazy.

I don’t know why, but this one word “Special” reminds me that I should leave my brain at the door…. Cause things are going to get weird… And not a single being in universe will ever want to speak of it again.

…And I think it’s working.

@DeadParrot
Happy birthday. Also, to answer your question about the live stream. I just want one live stream a weekend so we do not run out of content that fast. A stream can only be holster original content for so long so I want to maximize the amount of content we can show without the lineup getting bland, So that is my reason why we should only have one live stream per weekend.

Before I forget, the poll closes today, sorry for not posting reminders but I have been busy this week. If you have not voted feel free to do so.

You know, the amount I don’t care about this new EQG development is quite surprising.

Anyways, I just watched The Best Night Ever, and I kinda forgot how much I love this episode. The amazing outfits, the glorious musical numbers, the mane 6 losing their shit, and good old Spike getting drunk off of donuts. Good times.

Alright Deadparrot, I’ve had enough of your shit. Giving presents away on your birthday? Get the fuck out of here. Something has to be done about your retarded levels of altruism. Deadparrot, as punishment for your ridiculous levels of kindness and humanity towards the pony forum, I hereby nominate you for the title of ‘best brony.’

Happy birthday you goddamn amazing human being.

Oh, you know me.
I just want to make people smile…


@Equestria Girls
I can’t decide if that synopsis made this thing sound more or less interesting…
On the one hand, a multi-dimensional adventure beginning because of a lost crown seems really silly.
On the other hand, as someone pointed out, it is billed as a ‘special’ which implies that it may just be a one-time event (made-for-TV movie) that will essentially exist outside of normal canon.
Also, while the synopsis is pretty corny, rather than the character just becoming humans for no real reason and farting around in a stereotypical ‘high-school’ setting, I do like that it seems to have some kind of motive that will be driving the plot.
Also also, I get the impression that it will be only Twilight traveling through this mirror meaning that the other characters will actually be ‘from’ this human universe.
I have to admit that the prospect of Twilight transforming and freaking out at seeing her friends represented in crazy new bodies is kind of funny to me.
Now, obviously there are no guarantees that any of that will happen, but I can see enough potential to hold out hope for something that is at least passable.
(And I swear, if they put a Lyra-colored girl in there who is obsessed with ponies, I will laugh until I die.)
We’ll just have to see how they end up doing it n just a couple months now.

Well, there’s always one thing to do in So Cal at least…

Just look at those walls ’o text that are spreading shining radiant intelligence amongst brony kind. Their multitude of characters words and spaces filling my ocular senses with delight as my synapses fire millions of times to process the wealth of information provided to me by my fellow lovers of quadraped marshamllows.

Truly, we have advanced much since the dark days of Pony General 1. Where the Barbarians of image spam and their foul chieftain Derpy Vasquinctrox the Visigoth threatened to sack our capital of Pongeneralia and let the smoking of illicit bubbles destroy our productivity.

I’m…I’m so proud of you guys…..I just…

Verbose….there is no room for us here….we are no longer needed. We have done our duty…it is time for us to rest.

Sees DIDNEY WORL POSTS

On second thought, I’m sticking around.


First order of business: I switched my avatar. Fuck you Deadparrot. That’s my gift to you for your birthday. I LIKED SCOOTALOO BEFORE YOU DID! WHO CARES IF YOU WROTE A MASSIVE SUCCESSFUL FAN FICTION ABOUT HER?1 SHE’S MIIINE!

I’ll rotate between Scootamessi, Ed Harris and burning phoenix regularly.

Second order of business: I think asking this question in page 199 of PG6 was stupid for obvious reasons so I’ll ask again:

Can someone summarize what major news I missed during my haitus? Basically, everything after the season finale.

I only have fragments of news I’m afraid.

WOT I THINK OF EQUESTRIA GIRLS:

@burning_phoneix

They have done well. They speak tactfully, articulately, and without regard for word count.

I stick to light lurking myself. In fact, for the first time in a while, I am not up on Poni news as much as I normally would be. I still like the show and fandom, and I’m probably more interested in what’s going on now than I had been during Season 3, but I just haven’t had the time in the past few weeks.

Someone else will have to fill you in on most of the things.


  •  
    This on the new Teen Titans spin-off is the most recent event. The episode focused on Raven trying to get everyone else out of the Tower so she could watch “Pretty Pretty Pegasus.”
  • Synchtube has bitten the dust. There are other sites, but I’ve only been in on one event.
  • I forget if this happened before or after the finale, but Lauren Faust is helping Mane 6 with creating a game. She’s making and allowing Mane 6 to use her own characters (which removed the isssue Hasbro had with it.) They won’t be ponies, but I believe they will be quadrupeds.

@Didney Worl
Uh, guys…
We’re talking California here.
I think you may have the wrong park…


@Verbose/Fighting is Magic
Definitely quadrupeds but they’ve only released one teaser image so far:

Most people have theorized that we will be getting a Pinkie-styled alpaca/llama, an AJ cow, and a Rarity reindeer.
Someone even tried to fill in the silhouettes.

Then again, silhouettes are tricky…

If you don’t want her anymore, I’ll take her.. I would totally take her to Disneyland back in California.

Your plushie, I mean. I have no time for a girlfriend.

Looks like a few newslike things have occurred recently which is cool and all, but more importantly the CMU weekly pony chalking has happened!


There was also a picture taken with the club posing behind the chalking, but I have no idea where on the planet earth that image currently is. If it surfaces I’ll put it in the gallery. We plan to make at least one more chalking before the semester ends (probably next Saturday), hopefully it’ll be a big’un.

Not anywhere near L.A., Derpy. In a little town called “Indio,” I believe, or something like that… near Stage Coach. Yes, I am shamefully a loving and adoring fan of country, western, and rockabilly music. I just love it so…

@ Dead Parrot
It not Didney Worl? OK…

Hi, everyone!
Not to interrupt the Teen Titans love, but I have an important announcement to make:

…ahem…

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

HUZZAH!

Now, most would be content with announcing that and then sitting back to absorb the inevitable wave of upvotes, but NO!
I wish to do more!
And so, in my continued inability to comprehend human celebration rituals, I would like to offer gifts to you, the denizens of the KYM pony thread!

Haha, just kidding!
As if I’d give away my Scootaloos…
But fret not!
You will have an opportunity to get your hands on some free pony merch!
As it stands right now, I have at least four fabulous prizes that I will be sending out, for free, to four lucky winners, with the distinct possibility of having more prizes added into the mix!
Let’s write it all up below the break-line:


DA RULES:
I wanted to keep this simple so as many people as possible would have a chance to win, so all you need to do to enter is leave me a message on my wall stating as much.
That’s it!
(Only one entry per person will be counted so don’t go spamming my wall because it won’t help you.)
Once the entry period is over (which will be this Sunday, 4/28/2013, at midnight PST), I will use a random number generator to choose a winner who will get to choose one prize from the available pool.
Once they have chosen, the next winner will be picked and allowed to choose their prize and so on until all have been claimed.
Nice and simple!


THE PRIZES (so far…):

I have a full set of the vinyl figures that have been offered at Hot Topic up for grabs.
Again, to spread the love as much as possible, each winner will be able to pick one that they would like until they are all gone, ensuring four winners!

That said, I will also almost certainly be adding more prizes to the pool in the next couple days before the winners are chosen which means more opportunity and more winners!
Stay tuned for those!


The only other thing worth noting: Obviously if you want to win and receive your prize, you should only enter if you are prepared to give out your address to me over the internet.
I promise to never use it for any purposes other than this contest, but I certainly understand anyone who wishes to not enter because of this.
If you are prepared to do so, do not give me your address right away and do not post it on my wall.
I will ask for it if, and only if, you happen to win something and when I do, it will be in a private message.


So that’s it!
Happy birthday to me and let the games begin!
(Yes, I’m actually doing this.)

So since I spent much of my day on SAT prep, I couldn’t help but wonder, does equestria have anything like the SAT? They have a school system that seems vaguely analogous to the US education system, but their society has a much larger focus on self discovery than ours. does the cutie mark system eliminate the need for something like an SAT? even with cutie marks is there still basic knowledge all ponies are expected to know?

It seems that for the most part education is not as big of a deal in Equestria as it is in the human world. My theory is that every pony has required school time up to what would be our equivalent of about 5th grade or so. For the most part the young ponies go to school from a fairly young age (let’s just say 5 or so) and learn basic math, science, reading skills, etc. They then find their cutie mark, finish up their basic studies, and then go into apprenticeships, or go onto further studies that are more specific to their talents, or do whatever they need to do to prepare themselves for their lives with their discovered talent.

So what if your special talent isn’t growing apples or flying fast? What if your special talent is in something more complex like the math and sciences like this guy

Or hell, even learning and mastering magic like Twilight?

Well then there would be a need for special schools and pony universities (like Celestia’s magic school that Twilight is enrolled in). And as we have seen in The Cutie Mark Chronicles Twilight had to go through an application process and entrance exam to get into the school, so I think it’s safe to say that most if not all of the specialty schools and universities in Equestria have a similar application process and/or entrance exam. And so, if the education system is to mimic the US, that would probably call for a standardized test similar to an SAT. Of course, the ponies might be taking something like an SAT at a much younger age seeing as ponies in equestria discover and pursue their dreams far sooner than humans do. I don’t think Equestria has high schools… Does it?

So yeah, I think it’d make sense for there to be an Equestrian parallel to an SAT.
