@RegalSin Has any one told you make some insane posts that sometimes make no sense at all? Just like the one you just made right now?

Happy week everypony!

Ah many new faces for me. I am not around any other parts of the NL forums anymore, because so much work. Hello to anyone who stumbles around this thread!

I've been busier than ever, so not many posts; and no time for big comments on the new episodes, but I did see them. Very good stuff in Bloom & Gloom and Thanks for the Memories, and Apleoosa's Most Wanted was ok (Polsky, you are just a weird writer), so far nice season; now bring me my Celestia centered episode and we can all be happy.

@Aqueous Thank you very much for filling in for me my friend. Nice version of the FoTW! I'll stay in contact, I wanna try to find some time for Magic matches this month.


FoTW

And I return this week with another short story recommendation form GrimWolf. Tonight on the ==Fic of The Week:==
The Jerk That Time Forgot by King of Beggars
[On fimfiction Comedy Complete Teen]
Twilight Sparkle finds herself with an embarrassment of riches. She's got her own kingdom, great friends, some kind of Rainbow Magic, and her own castle! Nothing could go wrong... or so she thought. Something has risen from the depths of her new home to threaten the peace of Equestria. Something old, something powerful, something hungry...

Twilight's new castle has so many secrets and one of them lives in the basement and it hungers... for sandwich. Twilight Sparkle discovers Startswirl The Bearded in the basement of her castle after a 1000 year banishment. Why? Because he is an arrogant jerk that insults and provokes everyone around him. Unfortunately what they do to solve the problem isn't the best solution. The story starts slow and it really doesn't conclude properly, but it makes you laugh with the absurdity of the characters.

And science Twilight... because science!

@Xingen - WELCOME!

@Twilight_Crow - YAY! Thank you, I think its not really FoTW but more filling in and have noted it as such on the Fan Fic list. Still glad you like it and I'll likely do it again sometime, I'll try and keep it mostly focused on already posted fics mostly is my goal though if it runs again.
I hope we can keep in touch, I'm looking forward to some more battles of friendship Might send you a pm later on FimFiction.

Season 5 Episode 7 (Expect spoilers)

[spoilers]Watching someone, even Discord act in such a manner is hard on me, making this the first episode of the season to be cringe worthy and hard to watch but it made for some good laughs and story/lesson. I've got to say though, Pinkie spotting Discord playing as Solid Snake with the arrow and everything was a good laugh. The smooze made for an interesting touch. Figures Celestia invites Discord just like she invited Twilight and her friends. Oh, that would suggest that we've certainly had a year, one gala to another and we had two winters now. I'm not sure who else enjoyed it, but Discord ripping a portal to another dimension to banish Tree Huger (Honestly, that's the name?), I was kind of hoping he would, so we could see what the other world he picked was, almost had my fingers crossed it was ours, just to see what craziness would come of it. Maybe next time?[/spoilers]

I'm sure this has been here before but since I've been listening to it lately and its been likely 1000-3000 posts or at least months since we last put any pony music in here, have pony music.

I've been enjoying Season 5! They're really hitting all the right marks with me and not getting too crazy. Well, aside from Discord and Pinkie, but they're to be expected. Delightful!

A little later then planned but I finally got to it but it is time since my mind finally remembered.

I'll be filling in for @Twilight_Crow. Which means its time for


FoTW:FFF

Time for my twist of FoTW. I'm going to bring back a past fan fic and a few details on it.

Time for a Project involving one Princess Luna.

Shockingly this hasn't been seen since January 2012, when FoTW was called "fic of the week", blind bags of ponies were recent and FoTW just got bold to help point it out. I can't say I'm the biggest fan of the ending but I enjoyed the writing and story.
I won't say when or where this takes us but I'll say this much, this isn't the Luna we know or at least not for now and she is very much alone. I'll let you learn and discover the rest of the tale.

Not sure where it came from but I have been saving this I assumed since TJ last posted a pony in Fire Emblem clothing, not sure when it was, I only keep track of Fan Fics

Looks like nothing has moved for 2 weeks now. I'll give this thing a jolt then.

So I'm guessing Fic of the Week is out? I hope not, but if so, thanks @Twilight_Crow for taking that on. I really enjoyed it, and hope there may be more in the future. Thanks also @Aqueous for taking on duties for her when needed.

Been really liking this season thus far, and just saw episode 100. That thing was amazing! I'd go into it, but first spoilers.

Man alive! I can't believe what they got away with in this. So much fandom love, and they managed to make a pretty complete plot while at it as well. Having Derpy as the main focused background pony really did make this episode feel special. And not just her, but everypony got their chance to shine. My favorites being The Doctor (Allons-y!), Octavia speaking and doing stuff with Vinyl, and Celestia and Luna's little bickering. Having Bonbon as one of Celestia's secret agents was bizarre, but seemed to fit it now that I think about it. All in all, I hope that they continue with the personalities that they established here from the fandom and continue to to use these characters more often, and just not in the next milestone episode.

And just because I'm sure no one has posted it, and not sure anyone has seen it. The animation that is Lullaby for a Princess. So many feels...

@Lunapplebloom - FoTW is sleeping for now, TC is a tad swamped. I'll be posting a few fics every now and then to try and keep some new fics in flowing or get some posted. I'll do a few today. You're welcome and I'll do a few triple F as not FoTW on occasion I think. Just got a hint on an episode I didn't watch went I clicked your spoiler section. Should be an interesting episode when I find time.
Animation is neat but I'll stick to the one @Twilight_Crow posted for normal listening a long while back.

@Discostew - I'm behind as well, not sure how far but I want sometime to myself to try and catch up.

Stick on plan I have three fics for this week, two complete, one not. One of humour, one of sadness and one of interesting idea(s). Also I'm going to go into less detail this time as it isn't a feature, sorry.

Let's begin with sad, shall we? Also a NSFW story (language)
Godslayer by Vengeful Spirit
Complete story. Labelled: Dark, comedy and random. Rated: Teen
This is a dark comedy but it hinges more on the sad side with some dark humour and some more light heart-ed stuff but it still lies on the sad side and the author warns people off reading it before it begins if you aren't in a good place, so enter prepared.
Personally I gave it a like but some character's are behaving quite right.

Interesting idea(s) next?
Forever and Again and Again by Titanium Dragon
Complete. Labelled: Romance, Slice of Life.
Short story on reincarnation ideas, and are beings doomed to be repeated or repeat themselves.
I gave it a dislike, its alright but not really great.

Lastly, leaning towards comedic/humour so far
The New Hive by ArtichokeLust
Incomplete, Tagged with; comedy, adventure, human.
Worthy of note, no humans have appeared as of yet. Chrysalis post Canterlot invasion is our protagonist, and is in for a shock and her wish.
I'm withholding judgement for now out of curiosity where the story will go and the author's plans, decent start at least.

And an image for fun

So I finally sat down and watched a few newer episode (8-10). Still have at least 3 more (there's either 4-5 total left, but my source for them hasn't re-encoded them).

spoilers

Episode 8, to me, felt it was meant just to bring back Gilda and rekindle her and Dash's friendship. A few funny things in it, but overall, meh
Episode 9 was the best out of these last 3 episodes I watched. But, it was kinda of a "love it, hate it" episode. "Love it" because they brought in numerous old faces in a "their show" episode. "Hate it" because the makers literally used so much of what the fanbase decided them to be. I mean, the river serpent had no public name, but here, they used the fanbase's Steven Magnet from YT's faulty audio analyzer. Sure, there was the Doctor, whom I considered as such was settled in. But various other characters, like DJ-Pon3 and Octavia, Bon-bon and Lyra, etc, seemed all fashioned into what the fanbase finalized them as, as if the episode was one big fan-made compilation. Still, the best out of the 3 I recently watched.
Episode 10 felt more or less like a previous episode (can't remember which), so it wasn't really that captivating. Then again - napkin!

Finally sitting down to watch what I've missed. First time, I've had a decent gap of time alone to myself and the cats in a while.

Episode 8:

Seeing Gilda back, could of swore the voice changed, wasn't too expected. I thought the character was forgotten. Lesson was good, friendship is more valuable then gold and the episode was interesting. I like the little Harry Potter, buy all the sweets on the cart thing Pinkie did.

Episode 9:

This is the legendary background character episode? And its every bit the brony community canon to some degree? Made for a fun episode, reminds me of somepony's FanFic posts @Twilight_Crow Actually would be fun to see another one like that and see some of those character's honed in on. Sadly I watched it with shaky quality, still pretty good fun. Oh and random changling ftw

Episode 10:

Spike episode... So nothing surprising, Spike gets responsibility, abuses it, causes trouble, things are fixed. Sorry Spike, I'm still not a fan of your episodes.

Episode 11:

Planning ponies to live 500 years Pinkie Pie?Kind of a silly episode, I guessed the solution early but still interesting to watch. Pinkie Pie moves fast in an afternoon.

Episode 12:

In a world of Magic, Twilight still uses keys?! Sillies aside, I'm shocked they went back to that first episode side note and did something with it. Interesting episode and I'm sure someone wrote a fic, using those 5 and Twilight to beat Nightmare Moon or is writing one,as a one thing goes different. Hopeful those 5 show up in some form again. interesting episode and loving the slice of life this season is using right now.

Episode 13:

Okay... They just went for that old Princess Big Macintosh meme/video/image with a touch of Sailor Moon. Can I say unexpected? Bit interesting that Luna can create monsters of dreams and I think the kill was a bit fast but hey, Luna sleeps peacefully now. Rainbow's Nightmare I have to say was kind of funny, fitting but funny. Also the question if Fluttershy can become a bat pony in the real world is raised,

All caught up now. Took awhile but was fun. I'm hoping I don't have to use dailymotion again, that was slow and long. Though the episodes this season are feeling solid. Kind of a season 1-2 feel, I like it. Too bad it grew quiet here, as this would be a really fun season to discuss.

Just a reminder to all the pony fans still here at NintendoLife that the new episodes start THIS SATURDAY. Hopefully everyone's looking forward to it! It looks as though that Rarity will take the reins in the first episode back. Should be good, no? Her episodes are usually winners.

Excluding the leaked Halloween episode and the episode today, I'm all caught up with this 2nd half of this season that's available. And with that, I thoroughly enjoyed them just like when I first got into the series. Even the CMC episode with all the songs was more enjoyable than I thought it would be when I realized it was going to have a flurry of songs.

edit:

Seriously, I thought 5 seasons was nothing to really think about, then realizing that's 5 years......
5 years of being a fan of this generation. 5 years of my life involving colorful ponies (and one draconequus that really cemented my enjoyment of all this) .

I wanted to visit this thread after so long to thank you guys. I joined NintendoLife more then 4 years ago because of this thread, after finally giving this show a try and really liking it even after brushing it off as a weird inside joke gone out of controll first. When i starting watching at first, i was this dumb 14 year old angsty depressed kid not sure what to do with his life. But joining and participating in the brony community for the past 4 years has allowed me to meet so many amazing people and in the past few years, my quality of life improved significantly. And now i'm the happiest i've ever been. I might not visit this thread much anymore, and the people i interacted most with might have left this thread and show behind them, but the fact they were once here ment so much to me.

I held off on Season 6 for a long time, but downloaded the episodes as they came in. Now I've finished Episode 5 (Gauntlet of Fire), and it's still enjoyable to watch.

It's unfortunate though that we are no longer engrossed in this thread. I enjoyed our role-plays, our discussions of each episode, etc, but times have changed, and each of us has things in our lives that take up our time.
