KYM Pony General VII: Live Free or Twi Hard

I wonder…

Is unicorn magic dependent on the horn that focuses it? Some unicorn specific form of energy? Or both?

Because assuming it’s an energy thing, then if they did something like a levitation spell on a non unicorn, passing the unicorn energy to them… And the non unicorn had a fair idea of how to channel that magic, and possibly a wand… Then… Non unicorn master of magic happens?

That sounds like a semi-not stupid idea for a fan fic. However the only name I can think of for said fan fic is the corny tittle of “Magic Pass”.

…But I’ve got enough fic ideas on my plate I need to get around to… So don’t expect me to be the one writing that.

(Of course, for irony, a pegasus would wind up with a magic cutie mark due to all this, while a unicorn winds up with a flying cutie mark for skill with levitation magic. Shipping ensues.)

@Lunar: Wouldn’t that be the exact point of wands? Channel magic for Non-unicorns? Because, Unicorns have a build in wand, so (In theory) if an earth pony knew a lot about magic and spells they would use the wand as their catalyst for magic stuff.
Makes sense to me.

Well, there is no problem!

Or we don’t have you decide the “topic” of each single page again and just post whatever we feel like, or try and get an actual topic rolling.

I just posted Muffins Derpy, because fuck the police.

Seconded. It seems a bit restrictive when everyone just goes “Okay, post nothing but pictures of Berry Punch for this thread”. I’d just like to talk about Pony related things without it turning into every post turning into a different wacky conversation.

I have a feeling the discussion about what to discuss will go on for a good few pages.

Pick one.

Well, we have several options at this point. We could devolve back into /kym/ by talking about how sexy Blue Screen’s hooves are or what our favorite pony fetish is (as CrashGordon94 has already done), or we could have one of those useless power level debates that ravage TV Tropes about how powerful unicorns, pegasi, and earth ponies are, or we could talk about something that I’d thoroughly enjoy and talk about fanfics. There really are many options.

Earth ponies are stronger, pegasi are faster, and unicorns are a balance. /topic


Also, Blue Screen + pony fetishes = R63 Blue Screen. Somebody needs to art this.

Sorry, I thought that was fair game.
To make up, I went to UNITIИU and brought you back a TwiliwT:

I’m afraid I don’t really have a topic to suggest, would if I did.

Fair enough, here is one:

So yeah, it seems Hasbro is currently stuck in a copyright loop where they themselves infringe on their own copyrights. It’s pretty hilarious and gives reason to say “what goes around comes around”, but I’m just bringing it up for discussions.

I know I keep recommending shows for you to watch, So here’s another one, Black Mirror, it’s a British satirical drama that comments on modern society, it seems like the type of show many users here would like. Every episode is a short film and none of the episodes relate to each-other story-wise, so you can watch them in any order, I’d recommend this order:

15 Million Merits
The Entire History of You
White Bear
Be Right Back
The Waldo Moment
The National Anthem

There’s no Black Mirror Pony art for me to try and disguise this as on topic of ponies… so here’s a picture of Derpy Vs The Mayor instead.. Though if this is indeed a random thread then that would mean this unrelated pony post would be on topic.. though if it were on topic then it wouldn’t be random so that would make it off topic.. though if it’s off topic then it would be random so it would be related… I seem to have caught myself in a logical paradox..

Yeah, I think organized topics should (dare I say it) have a sort of 4chan quality. As a thread is created, it lives or dies based on whether or not others are interested in it. There’s nothing wrong with pony spam as long as it’s not required or expected. Same with really involved conversation on heavier topics. No need to force anything, but feel free to suggest anything.

I suppose there would be times (if not the underlying foundation) where you just talk about yourselves, but I’ve said my piece on that which is merely a personal preference.


As for the whole Hasbro biting itself thing, I think that’s the restrictive nature of laws. They’re generally made to protect something to some extent when breaking the hypothetical law has more benefit to others than not breaking it.

In this case, it seems like the hard nature of laws and their enforcement caused this video to get nixed.
 
But:

  1. Considering the channel, they can get that video back up very quickly if they wanted. I’m sure that was an automated takedown based on the images/video.
  2. Hasbro probably doesn’t make its big money from YouTube. It’s probably more of a mosquito bite than anything.

 
But yeah, it is funny. Ironic, even.

One of the ways of making sure their property is presented solely by them has prevented them from presenting that same property.


I haven’t posted a picture in a while.

Sauce.

I have no idea what you guys are doing.. Are we posting cunts? humans? muffins? sexy BSOD? power levels? copyright thing? Too much topic for a one fresh page! What .. What the fuck are we talking about??

Here is a YTP to externalize my feelings

You know, I don’t care when Hasbro takes down Pony stuff due to copyright. I mean it IS their property so they can do what they want with it right?

Well after saying that I can’t help but laugh imagining the Exec’s reaction to this.

Hasbro Executive: Yeah! Another video on Youtube posted by some random brony has been removed due to our copyright claims! If you want to listen to the song you have to buy the Equestria Girl’s Bluray!

Intern: But wasn’t that the official My Little Pony Youtube channel?

Hasbro Executive: ……….Say what do you do for a living?

Intern: Well I’m your summer intern.

Hasbro Executive: Not anymore.

That’s a great idea! We’ll have a breakfast thread! And I know just the pony to lead the discussion: Snapplequack! I mean Oatmealsack! I mean LOOK AT THIS PICTURE:

There, thread under control. I’ll be in my trailer.

Honestly though, I was actually thinking of referencing DP when I first made that post.

Oh, you certainly have.

Best just be staying away from my neighborhood, ya hear?


@Topics
Yeah, I too tend to prefer actual discussion over random image posting, but this is the lull between seasons.
Can’t expect new and interesting topics to be popping up all the time, so what’s wrong with a little craziness?

To that end:

Part of a balanced breakfast!


@Lunar
I tend to go with the ‘magic as a natural force to be harnessed’ theory.
Unicorns have a built-in ‘wand’ that allows them to focus magical energy into very specific and conscious effects.
Pegasi and Earth ponies live within the same magical field, they just typically lack direct control of it.
Instead, the other two races receive ‘passive’ benefits.
Pegasi gain the abilities of weather control and cloud-walking (perhaps because their wings act as more diffused focal points for magic) while Earth ponies have a natural, magical connection to the ground and soil.
Under certain circumstances and with lots of training, perhaps an Earth pony could even put that passive connection to active use.

@DP: You have a plushie of that? Wow, neat!
Though, I really shouldn’t be surprised at this point.
@Bruno: Dude, we’ve been thoroughly off the rails since this page began, some of the users have been struggling to FIND any rails!

Platus: Do not try and find the rails – that’s impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth.
Bruno: What truth?
Platus: There are no rails.
Bruno: There are no rails?
Platus: Then you will see that it is not the thread that is derailed, it is only yourself.

Train wreck? Oh, I’m sure we’ll think of something . . . .

Alright, so we should probably try to get some kind of topic going again.

How about this: best thing that MLP should be crossed-over with that you have yet to see. (Or, at least, have yet to see done well.)

Way ahead of you buddy. Here and here


@Doing drugs

This thread going into drugs? Reminds me of old times. But I stay away from all those assorted pills and smokes. I much prefer booze


@Food and ponies as food

I can agree that some of the coolest looking ponies are the ones that look edible. EG: Flufflepuff looks like cotton candy and that makes her all the more endearing. But…

Skeletor-sm
