@CorporalPegasus - Thank you, too bad he's growing old.

@JoeBroku - Nope, not offensive.
I`m not the best at explaining it but I`ll try. Hmmm, hipster`s I think are part of the fan base. From what I know, the art style is appealing. The stories can be full of references and jokes made for the older viewers. Though I find it comes down to how well written and diverse the characters are, there is pretty much a character for everyone and all have about the same screen time. Also the writing is good, never goes into an extremely gender particular territory. Personally I just love the character`s interactions and how unique they are when they interact. I think everyone likely has a couple favourites from it.

[21:36] BadKitty: I see people are excited to play as LJM xD
[21:38] Aqueous: It should be fun but it makes me worried were you are in episode 1
[21:38] BadKitty: Dead xD
[21:38] Aqueous: :O

Happy weekend everypony!

Super late post is a GO!

@Lunapplebloom Nice comic review, just a piece of advice: you should really summarize the plot of the comics a bit more, don't explain the story so thoroughly, that is what Wikipedia is for. :P

Trade Ya uh? Interesting episode. Definitely good, but I would put Scott Sonneburn's Somepony to Watch Over Me, above it, even though most bronies seem to disagree. I guess in the technical part this one is a bit better.

If I have something to commend this episode for is using common tropes well. However, it was far too predictable and that took some points from it. I may have mentioned before that my head is like a private TVTropes, I could predict far too many plot points of this episodes's THREE story arcs for it to surprise more than twice (Thank Celestia for Pinkie Pie and mythical creatures), but that is just me.

Still, I can't believe that some say the trading sequence was not predictable. Of course I couldn't guess exactly how it went, but the fact that they were going to need to get lots of stuff to get that Daring Do book and that they would have to work hard for that stuff were more than obvious. So it was that at the very end the whole trade would end with Fluttershy getting her bird whistle. I thought that RD was going to trade some Fluttershy's goods, and was amused when she traded Fluttershy herself, that was a good idea. No, it was not surprising, I have seen it before, but it was well played, and teaches the same good lesson, friends are more important than material things.

I knew Rarity and AJ, would both find stuff they want, would banter about it and then finally get each other something, far too simple. Good banters though. Didn't expected Pinkie doing that whole show for "selling" Twilight's books, but I knew our Princess was going to change her mind about trading them.

Overall the episode was well written and it was lots of fun. Wonderful details added to the stories in very funny or interesting ways. Visuals and the design of some characters were stronger than usual, and we had massive continuity nods. Also, love Twilight doing some Princessy stuff. Even if predictable you won't hear me complain about this one.


FoTW

Tonight on the ==Fic of The week,== a dark story because there's been a while since I posted one:
Homecoming by seeker9709
[On Fimfiction Dark Incomplete Teen]
After a terrible accident, a filly called Twilight Sparkle disappeared. After 15 years she is returning home. But knowing about her past, and after hearing some disturbing information about the mare, Luna and Celestia are unsure of the stability of the damaged pony. They will have to take precautions against her.

First of all, yes this is an alternate universe story, and a very dark one. To my friends that don't like gore: Stay away. It is not terrible, but it is there.
In this Equestria, Luna was never banished to the moon, and darker enemies plot against the ponies. A Twilight Sparkle possessed by an murderous entity is forced to work for this evil. With the help of her girlfriend Octavia, Twilight tries to keep herself sane just enough to fullfil a mission and nothing will stop her; not even Luna's student and awesome soldier Rainbow Dash.
With great management of characters and subplots, nice descriptions and a foreboding atmosphere, this story is a crushing tale of loss in which more and more bad stuff keeps happening. Will there be light at the end? I don't know, but the author has done a great job making me want to figure that out.
Good writing.

Was that provoked or just a random outburst, as usual with Volke?

Volke s posts never make any sense to me really. I have notices some Season 3 bashing but that is all. I think that is kinda justified, too. Worst season by far. Nearly everybody seems to be postive toward Season 4 expect some complaints about Pinkie Pie now, and i would agree with those complaints too.

Totally agree with this post. My thoughts exactly. ...can't say much for Season 3, though, because the only episodes I could assuredly tell you what season they are from is four...

I'm all caught up!
I haven't exactly read most of what I missed of the thread, I don't think I can. :P
Watched a livestream of the latest episode, even.

I thought it was good. I was actually in a situation kinda like Rarity's yesterday, though it wasn't provoked by someone else, but by me being lazy and then having to reach a deadline time on that day. I was hoping the episode would do more with Rarity having to cope with that, but hey, I think the moral was a good one. Heck, I think I actually learned that yesterday as a product of all the hullaballoo. :D

@CorporalPegasus: Happy late birthday!
As the official Pinkie Pie here, I think I'll put my thoughts down on how she's been lately: I hate when they use her for purely cheap comedy relief like in Bats, her jokes then only work sometimes and other times it just comes off obnoxious. Her part in Filli Vanilli was also pretty overwhelming, she is one to unknowingly get a negative reaction from whomever she's talking to, but she took it a bit too far. Nonetheless, I think she was pretty good in Maud Pie (By the way, I love the titular character. I never thought someone so muted in expression and straightforward with thought would be so hilarious. Or could exist in any form. :D), Testing (I got a kick out of the 80's style rap video :D) Trade Ya. And Pinkie Apple Pie.... man, that has to be my favorite episode this season. It really redeemed Pinkie Pie for me, and the show as a whole. I hope she'll display that level of warmth and hilarity in enjoying EVERYTHING again soon. I also like that ponies seem more affectionate towards Pinkie Pie this season, when you compare an episode like Pinkie Apple Pie to one like The Last Roundup, which capitalized on ponies finding her really irritating (I love that episode, but that's my one gripe with it). Honestly, the only thing I've had a problem about her with that's worth complaining about this season is how she acted in Filli Vanilli. She could be better, but I'm not sure why everybody dislikes her so much this season.

@Morpheal: I might have missed something being that I've only read a few recent posts here in there, but I read the past two pages. I have a feeling it was Volke being Volke though (I think I've read enough of his posts to judge that). I wanted to tell him sometime that he's putting way too many words in our mouths and taking a TV show way too seriously :P (I I took it too seriously back when I started getting into the show, though. Fan work that took stuff off cannon, save art style, made me uncomfortable back then. :P)

@JoeBroku: I used to hate My Little Pony with a burning passion until I finally gave this show a chance. I think part of why I like it is the warm feeling I get from it, one of the few cartoons I watch that pulls it off so well. I also like the humor a lot, and like @Aqueous said, it's not gender focused like a lot of other cartoons aimed at little girls are. Also, I think I remember a lot of earlier bronies saying it held a quality of older cartoons that can't be seen in newer cartoons. Can't say I agree with that, Cartoon Network's finest recent stuff is also pretty good imo.

@Twilight_Crow: The picture of Trixie lizard riding is my wallpaper now. :D

Happy weekend everypony!

Super early post is a GO!

Slow week I see. I've been avoiding a lot of brony sites and forums lately because SPOILERS; so, I bet nothing safe to talk about... and vacations are over.

@CorporalPegasus I don't think the author was thinking about the tarot when he drew it, but who knows. Still, very nice piece indeed.

@Moorpheel Definitely random outburst. No one here has ever said season one is the all in all of pony, or anything like that. I should know, I was the last one who spoke to Volke here, and I only mentioned season four.

@ToastyYogurt yay for catching up. Glad you like that image. :D

Inspiration Manifestation... what a mouthful. Corey Powell... he wrote Rainbow Falls, so it doesn't surprise me he needed the help of Megan for this one. :P I am so mean. I actually liked this episode very much, I may be biased since I just love Tabitha taking Rarity to the limits.

So yeah, Rarity goes crazy on this one, and that my friends is a treat all by itself, but you also need to add the expressions, oh the expressions; the animation focuses so much on the characters in this episode that they really shine. Weirdly, I found Owlowiscious quite amusing too, I bet many will complain about how he does nothing but giving Spike a scolding stare, but I just like him to be there, with a great "voice", some funny dialogue and a lot expressions too. Spike was not at his top game, but I do like how they used him for this lesson, why with his obsession with Rarity it fits perfectly. The story was ok, a good lesson from yet another classic trope. If you think something your friend is doing is wrong, you tell him the truth, simple and clean. Maybe a bit too simple, but who cares? Rarity ate like 7 tubes of ice cream lol. And stressed Twilight is best Twilight.

Is it me or are there just too many carnivals and fairs in Equestria?


FoTW

To contrast with last week's fic, tonight on the ==Fic of The week,== a completely fluffy story:
"Another Cup Of Tea, Madam?" by Manes
[On Fimfiction Slice-of-Life Complete Everyone]
Celestia comes to Ponyville for a visit on some business or another, but when she bumps into an excited and adorable little unicorn looking for a Princess to be at her tea party, Celestia, tired of working all the time, decides to relax and play along, letting forgotten memories from her past be reborn.

This funny little story is simplicity incarnated, a sweet idea that is cute no matter how you write it. Even if some of the one line characters feel a bit odd, the main characters are alright and you can't deny the fluffiness of their actions. It is just too sweet to dislike, even if it has some grammar issues. Basically a feel-good story that will at least make you smile... or die of diabetus.
Regular writting.

@ToastyYogurt Huzzah! :D Glad that you were able to catch up. I look forward to you being able to see you around here more. :)

@Moorpheel I actually saw his last post before it was edited, but it's what everyone expected, and was shortened in the edit. He's just being himself I guess.

@TeeJay I feel your pain. I had to live that way for a while myself.

@Twilight_Crow Thanks for the constructive criticism. I really do appreciate it, and glad you enjoyed it so far. I'll take your opinions and run with it. Of course Sweetie Belle is the one trying to cause death from cuteness. :P Nice looking story though, and will read later. And of course, I had a feeling you would use that picture for this week. :P Looks like something from Final Fantasy.

@Aqueous Thanks for the stat details. Hard to believe that we had so many stories over the course of the thread, but I guess that's what happens when you have a thread that's coming onto 3 years old. Wow... now I feel old... er.

and for those that have not seen it yet...

As for today's episode, I liked it. Not really amazing, but I thought it was up to snuff, and may be one of my favorite episodes for the character...

And that character was Spike. I hear alot of people complain about Spike episodes, and it's not hard to see why when you have the mess that was 'Spike at Your Service'. He's always seems not quite engaging when he headlines things. Not only that, but he seems to be the constant end of jokes in the show that are sometimes downright mean. I just get the feeling that the show writers don't know exactly what they should do with him to advance his character, and I believe he's stagnated a little in that department. This episode goes a little bit to at least advance his character a bit more., and I enjoyed that. But enough ranting about what I think about Spike. I thought the episode was pretty well constructed. It had the familiar scenarios, but it all played out in an interesting manner for the most part. At first, i just thought that Rarity's new powers where going to her head, but then the reveal later on that she wasn't herself was an interesting small twist to me, though I had a feeling there was some influence in that green dark magic once the situation really got out of hand. Owloicious also plays conscious to Spike again, and I always do enjoy those moments. He and Spike seem to fit each other well, and have good chemistry. Also, Octavia... need I say more? :P And nice that we get references to both Luna and Cadence helping to fix the mess, but what about Celestia? Seems like the show is somehow avoiding even mentioning her for of screen being about. Strange...

And for those that don't mind, here is another Rainbow Rocks short.

I liked it.

Sorry for my double post, but I just came up with an Idea! Untitled

Some other users here have weekly things they post; like fanfictions, etc... I thought of something I could do: weekly Pony Remixes! :D
There are lots; I think it would be fun to post one a week, if anyone would be interested in that. ;)

I'll do one every Sunday! (because today is Sunday, and here is my first one) :D

This is probably my favorite MLP remix I've found. I love the way it sounds! :)


Different subject (but still kinda music related):

This is kinda just me thinking aloud, but I wondered what you guys maybe thought of this. :)
So, I was inspired by this song:

And I just got started thinking, "what if there was a MLP:FiM film with a style that fit this song?"
I imagine it with an art style with a bit more detail, a little bit darker colors... a little higher production values...
...a story that's a bit more serious than usual... but that still has the feeling that I love so much from MLP:FiM.
I imagine something like the Changelings, or the big spike vine things from the beginning of S4 (I don't remember if they had a name); some sort of apocalyptic conditions they must overcome to save the world...

A slightly darker mood MLP:FiM movie I think would be cool... with the above song in mind for as far as the general feeling I'm thinking of. And I'm thinking only slightly more serious in tone; I love the 'fun' quality of it, and wouldn't want that to be lost.

So what do you guys think of this idea? Would you be interested in a bit more serious version of MLP?

@CorporalPegasus oh yeah, pff, this will never actually happen I'm sure... at least not officially. Untitled With that song I posted, I imagine like, Applejack in the front, and the other mane six following behind, walking through the desert... behind them, the sun is rising, but ahead of them, in the distance, the sky is pitch dark and smoke rolls into the sky...

Also, not to be picky, but that was a PMV, not a YTPMV... but eh, close enough, and yes it is neat! :D I really love this one a lot! I have it on my 3DS (which I use like an mp3 player), and listen to it all the time! I can't get enough of it! XD
