Finally, it aired! I had to stay off the ponynet for about a week before the first episode aired, just to avoid spoilers. I would read through everything I missed, but I honestly can’t be bothered to read through 30 pages of forum posts. Did I miss anything important?

My thoughts on the new episode: It seemed a little rushed to begin with, but the second half more than made up for it. Discord is now best pony… draconequss… thing. He’s the ultimate troll.

So glad to see you’re back. I thought you had just left the thread altogether.
 

  • Anyway, there was a ton of fanfiction and related criticisms being thrown around.
  • There was a ton of fan characters made.
  • Newer thread frequenters learned about some more advanced forum functions (e.g., quoting and all the things that quoting does, spoiler buttons thanks to RandomMan, I believe.)
    • We’ve neglected using the spoiler button. I’m not sure why, but your foresight saved you from a lot of spoiling.
  • Speaking of, there was a lot of spoiling.
  • Season 2 premiere discussion…kinda.

I agree with you. The beginning seemed rushed, but I guess the rushed pace had to happen to reintroduce the mane 6 to the audience. After getting to Canterlot, things were paced a bit better. I laughed a lot (mostly at with Pinkie.) Need to let the episode settle, but that seemed a bit dark for kids. I don’t think it’ll threaten the show itself, but there was some borderline nightmare fuel.
 
 
Pinkie is threatening Twilight’s spot as Best Pony again and I don’t know how to feel about this…

Yes yes yes! Here it is, my first picture of Vinyl Scratch. No glasses for her this time around. Sorry.

First person to quess what the deal with that suit is all about, gets an imaginary muffin.

@Algernon
Good to see you around too. I wondered why you hadn’t been around lately. Discord was definitely a positive surprise. I already dubbed him “The Original Troll”.

Pinkie and Fluttershy also provided some good laughs during the show. The coincidence of Pinkie mentioning “Chocolate Rain” was definitely funny, especially with all the fuss it caused all around. The “Slender Bunnies” were my personal favourite though.

I actually had a dream about the episode flopping, but it actually ended up exceeding all my expectations to the point that I watched it for the second time soon after.

Big Mac trains to be a ninja in his spare time. (We don’t really see him doing much).

I wonder what the one with Pinkie Pie’s gonna be like?

I finally got time to work on my fanfic. The part I’m working on is a prologue. Its not quite done yet. If I get my tasks done early tomorrow I may have it ready for DA. Just a warning, this part is pretty grimdark.

Go back and watch the scene between Discord and Fluttershy, but imagine that Discord is every troll/parasprite on the internet and Fluttershy is the brony community.

Did anyone else think of the opening scene in Yoshi’s Story when the mane six (except Twilight) turned grey? I was, since I am a Yoshi fan.

In case you guys do not know, in the opening scene in Yoshi’s Story, Baby Bowser steals the Super Happy Tree, the source of the Yoshis’ happiness, causing the Yoshis to turn discolored and to lose their harmony. Only the six baby Yoshis recently hatched from their eggs could save the other dismal Yoshis.

Here’s what I mean:

I have that game on The wii :D (i always played it when i was like 6-12 or somethin back on the nentendo 64 :D)

Okay guys, I hate to say it, but I’m probably going to have no interaction with the site until the 1st of next month when the first non-Discord episode airs.

Edit: If you want to know why, though I doubt anyone cares, right now I’m just kinda going through a bout of depression, it comes and goes, and right now, it’s coming full force.

ATTN Anyone working on the OC Collab:

Karnage just put up the beginnings of the first chapter here -https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vM2WIJhNqr7SUozZyqO8FQbGzztrFsnxKBsz0_SGMt8/edit?hl=en_US#

We don’t exactly have a lot of stuff written down in stone yet, as the chapter’s barely started, but I decided I’d take on the role of Paul Revere and tell you all about it.

So… yeah.

EDIT: Failed at Textile. Re-linking.

EDIT 2: Epic-failed at Textile, screwing it in favor of direct link.

My friend played that game long time ago. It looked pretty easy and looked very cute, but when my friend fell into a bottomless pit and had the Yoshi taken away to a creepy castle, I got nightmares from that scene that night.

The scene was the thing I remembered the most about the game due to its creepiness.

Here’s what I am talking about:

@Connor 2: Actually… it kinda does. It does make her look a lot like a cat. Maybe that was what the animators were thinking when they designed Nightmare Moon?

Yo guys, I’ve been away for some shops and guess what?? Just bought my very first MLP: FiM merchandise !!!
I first went to McDonald’s, got a Happy Meal and asked for a RD. (all that like a bawss!!)
Then I proceded to the nearest toy store and got a mini Pinkie Pie toy.
Now I’m proudly exhibiting them in my room, in my bookstand (and if anyone asks if they’re mine, I’ll just say “yes, problem?”)

@Dr. Raymond: Just get better bro. And when you do, may your body be ready for more ponies !!

Just watched the episode. It was good, but nothing spectacular. Like somepony else said, the start seems a bit too fast, but it did start to slow down to a good pace once they got to Celestia. Discord, while being a horrible looking character, was possibly the best villain I have ever seen in a cartoon. He’s everything a villain should be, and at the same time everything a villain shouldn’t be, and it works. He’s charismatic, he’s manipulative, he’s opportunistic, he’s straight up evil. It’s just perfect.

We also got the first two epic Pinkie quotes with her comments on the chocolate rain (during the part at Celestia’s castle).

So yeah, while not a huge fan of this episode I still enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next episode.

That’s because they’re based off of Pusheen the Cat :D

Speaking of which I found a dress Pusheen game on the site which appears to have parts to make Pusheen a unicorn pony!
