Lol, wow, it’s been a while since I’ve had to go to my favorites to get to the Pony page. :P

hey guys what character has the the best… umm.. interesting mental breakdowns in the show?

 
You’re right. I really liked all of them, and they were all well-done.
  • Fluttershy’s in Best Night Ever was interesting. The fact that she was no longer able to exhibit her special talent brought about anger when most might expect sadness. Unexpected, but funny.
  • Rarity’s in Suited for Success was still in character along with the one in A Dog and Pony Show, but they were both very entertaining and made sense to me. I always feel like she’s on the verge of hysterics anyway.
  • Rainbow Dash’s made tons of sense in Sonic Rainboom. She’s proud and somewhat boastful, which probably covers up some of her own insecurities and her fear of failure. Rarity exploited those fears…beautifully. (It’s funny, because Rarity had beautiful wings. Or maybe it isn’t funny, because it isn’t funny.)
  • Twilight’s breakdowns may be my favorites, because she is best pony and I really liked her expressions from Feeling Pinkie Keen and and Blazing Saddles reference in Swarm of the Century. And because she is best pony.
  • Applejack’s breakdown wasn’t so much of a breakdown in Applebuck Season.
  • Pinkie’s breakdown got a ton of airtime compared to all of the other characters. Party of One focused almost entirely on Pinkie, even more than Suited for Success was on Rarity. But I was saddened more than I was tickled at her breakdown.

So yeah, either Pinkie’s or Twilight’s for different reasons.
 
However, I don’t really want to see Pinkie that sad for an entire episode unless it is extremely well-executed and not forced.
…Wait a sec. Am I doubting Jayson Thiessen and his team?
However, I don’t really want to see Pinkie that sad for an entire episode unless it is extremely well-executed and not forced.
I could stand to see Pinkamena for that long. I’m sure it’ll work out nicely.

about fluttershy, actually her response does fit her character. she already had anger issues before that episode, and this kind of anger bursts acutal thing with Aspergers… which just adds more to how realistic the personalities are in the show…

You don’t have to go that far you know. Friendship is Magic will always be under the Trending Photos of the front page, and there’s nothing they can do about it!
Wah ha haa ha!

I know a couple of people with Asperger’s, but I’ve never been around during a moment of anger of any sort. Hm, I guess learned something today then. (and I had completely forgotten about Dragonshy and Stare Master.)

I know i am kind of sad that ponies is no longer on the trending bar. But i have been reading the comments on the MLP page and i guess the flamewar with a troll was responsible for it. So i guess it is nice that some other up and coming memes can have their chance to shine.

Nope.avi I just had a look at the front page, and none of the trending photos had ponies in them. This kinda worries me, I think the activity is going to die off here.

Also, Verbose, that’s not how you spell Fluttershy, silly.

Look again Ray. Under the Trending Photos is a list of most popular memes, and Friendship is Magic is always on top. I never said the ponies had taken over the Trending Photos, did I?

Although taking over the Trending Photos again would be…
…Nice.

Even though I saw the spoiler warning, I still went ahead and read what was beneath it. I swear my own brain is messing with me. Good thing it wasn’t a real spoiler.
If you want genuine spoilers, more season 2 footage has found its way to Equestria Daily. It’s apparently only a few seconds, but I don’t know what it’s actually about. I’m being sure not to watch it in case it ruins a punchline or something. I’ll link it here

By the way, Faust has revealed that there are going to be more families of ponies in Season 2. There is a screen clip of her deviant art page in the images section. What does everyone think?

It’d be nice to see if Scootaloo actually has a family. :P We’ve seen Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle’s, but nothing of Scoot’s. It’s because she’s not related to any of the mane cast, isn’t it?

I think it would be interesting if Scootaloo was an orphan (for whatever reason) and we meet Rainbow’s family and they adopt her. Have any episode about her driving Rainbow out of her mind then have them be happy as sisters.

But then why would Faust say that Scoots wasn’t Dash’s sister? Maybe she’s a street urchin, like the Artful Dodger.

We’ll she wouldn’t be Dash’s sister UNTIL that episode. They don’t have the story line for every episode they are ever going to do written, do they?

About families, I think they could show something like an episode where the parents of the mane 6 are presented (or a little hint for the bronies like Derpy with Dinky or Berry Punch with Ruby)

You know what that feels like? Actually, don’t answer that, I’m not sure I want to know.

About Scoot being some kind of street urchin, I can’t see it happening. It’s a kids’ show, and a pretty upbeat one at that, so I doubt the subjects of being orphaned or abandoned by your parents would ever show up. It’s a shame really, since your ideas about her being adopted by Dash would make a pretty good story.

i can just imagine a “Meet the Parents” episode, kinda like the cutie mark one
Scootaloo gets upset because her Sweetie Bell and Applebloom have sisters, and somehow it ends up about flashbacks featuring thier parents

What do you or does Faust mean by more “families of ponies”? Does this mean family in the mother, father, cousin, sister, brother sense or in the biological sense (ie Pegasus, Unicorn, Earth, etc.)?

Totally. Specially her 2 sisters, they could visit her in Ponyville in one episode

I am curious about Scootaloo. Her lack of family has been annoying me, somewhat. I do hope we learn something about her family this season.

Did anypony who read the latest 3 chapters of Past Sins find chapter 20 hard to read, hard to read because there isn’t much at the start but talking. Does it get better or should I wait for revisions to read the rest?

Nope. I got through all 3 in one sitting. Most books I read are a lot more dull that Past Sins, so a little bit of dialogue didn’t bother me very much. It does get better though, and the ending is definitely worth it. The only time I ever found Past Sins to be difficult to get through was the first batch of revisions, since it meant re-reading about 13 chapters. I also doubt that any further revisions will cut down on the amount of talking in chapter 20. Any further revisions will probably just patch up the occasional spelling or grammar mistake.
If you want to see something that’s really hard to read, try Fallout: Equestria Chapter 37. It’s pretty exciting throughout, but unbelievably long for a single chapter. I couldn’t read it all in one go and had to split it into smaller sections.

I know that feel bro, I’m (sorta) writing a fanfic for my comic and I can’t help but feel like every sentence is stepping on someone’s toes. But it’s better to be overly cautious then to think everything you write is pure gold and should totally be accepted into the canon.

Or in other words, it’s better to feel remorse for skinning the dog then to think it’s an improvement, unless you REALLY didn’t like that dog.
