It was actually really well made and wasn't dark. The thing is it looks dark to us as we have a darker view on things as it is.

Again not wanting to spoil, but he basically forced each pony to go against their elements, Applejack was forced to lie not liking the truth she was shown etc.
The villain himself was shown as a complete joker, he was having fun, dancing on Twilight's head etc. and admitting to Pinkie Pie he loved her laughing style, he was generally shown to be a sort of goofy yet also manipulative character. And that is exactly what he did he manipulated each pony to be what they don't like. It isn't dark as much as it is a game he is playing.

I will admit I felt very sorry for them, especially Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy, those two did get the bad end of the game. However we have seen similar from them in the past in Party of One and Best Night Ever etc. They have these sides to them and all Discord did was to force them out rather than make them himself. He hid the better sides of them away but didn't destroy them.

In the end, what you see from this episode is what YOU see, little girls who haven't been brought up on the internet will see it as funny yet also a little upsetting and will be looking forward to seeing them getting better, people on the internet are going to see it as cruel etc. It is perception.

Either way, Discord is made out to be such a comical and loveable villain that is helps lower all the worries, as you know in the end he is doing it all for a laugh, a tasteless laugh maybe, but he doesn't want to cause any real pain.

IT. IS. PAUL.

What's up guys?!

Just here to say the new season of MLP fucking rules. The first episode is great, watched it in high definition and I plan on watching it later on after I post this. I really wanna find some pony hentai since it's one of the best versions of hentai. I have yet to find it but if you guys can please send me some links that would be great. Also, I was at the mall today and I saw some fucking great Rainbow Dash panties. At night I fantasize about wearing them and shitting and pissing in them, and the warm smooth cloth against my genitals, gently rubbing my nutsack. Fuck yes. I'll post back if I get the panties, and if I don't I will post anyway! LOL.

Sincerely,

Paul (aka Pony Master)

If someone is banned it is due to breaking some forum rules and nothing more. It has nothing to do with the fact that there are bronies on the site.

Just saw the new episode. Good stuff. I admit hearing Pinkie say "Chocolate Rain" made me laugh a bit.

It's a great way to start the new season. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do in the next one.

I am a hater. But Im not here to flame, just to put up a simple message where you people are going to be able to see it.

Everybody likes different things. Being a hater of something is NOT a bad thing. Nor is liking something a bad thing either. Theres no Haters gonna Hate business to it. People like different things, you cant change this fact. Least of all by flaming the haters. If all haters stopped flaming the fans and all Fans stopped flaming the haters things would be better. I for one would just like to say, that granted, you want to spread the MLP whatever you do around. But theres a time and place for it. I.e. HERE.

If you want to post MLP memes and generic captioned images then do so on one of the many many many designated sites or threads or make a new one. Bringing it up all the time will only start of us "Haters" and it will be nobodies fault but your own. Just a friendly word. If the haters and fans kept to themselves then tihngs would be better but that will only happen if everyone tries to make it happen. All of you should, like me, do the mature thing and keep your opinions to yourselves except where absolutely necesary. MLP is fine. But not everybody likes it or wants to hear about it.

Have a nice day.

All I ask is that if you're going to hate have reason to it other than "it's a girl's show" or "it's stupid." If you honestly think it is stupid or annoying to you and you have good reason for it after seeing at least a few episodes of the show, then I can understand and respect said opinion. As long as they can respect my opinion for liking the show and not just call me a shameless bandwagon rider.

That's quite alright sir, I acknowledge that not everyone is of same mind or body, and therefore will not have the same opinion.

Everybody likes different things. Being a hater of something is NOT a bad thing. Nor is liking something a bad thing either. Theres no Haters gonna Hate business to it. People like different things, you cant change this fact. Least of all by flaming the haters. If all haters stopped flaming the fans and all Fans stopped flaming the haters things would be better.

So you're saying if we would all get along, we would all get along? This is not something new to me.

I for one would just like to say, that granted, you want to spread the MLP whatever you do around. But theres a time and place for it. I.e. HERE.

Wonderful, that's exactly what I've been trying to do ever since this thread was established.

If you want to post MLP memes and generic captioned images then do so on one of the many many many designated sites or threads or make a new one.

That's not this thread's intent. We just want to talk about the show. We would probably be in C&C if the mods let us, but alas that is simply not the case.

Bringing it up all the time will only start of us "Haters" and it will be nobodies fault but your own. Just a friendly word. If the haters and fans kept to themselves then tihngs would be better but that will only happen if everyone tries to make it happen. All of you should, like me, do the mature thing and keep your opinions to yourselves except where absolutely necesary.

Aren't you the upstanding moral citizen? Trust me, the majority of us like to stick to this thread alone.

MLP is fine. But not everybody likes it or wants to hear about it.

I understand this, you're not talking a child you know.

Have a nice day.

And you as well.

Ok dude I gotta throw this out. I have a very open mind. At first when I saw all the MLP stuff arround, all the referances memes and captions I thought it was some viral joke. Then I began to realise that all these people "Bronies" were actually serious. My first thought was what is all the fuss about? So I thought if all these people like it, its worth taking a look at. So I watched myself an episode of it. And honest to God. I hated it. Nuff said.

I have nothing against people liking it. Everyone is in title to there own opinions. What I have somethign against is people Not liking other people Not liking MLP and vise versa, because thats not fair. The hating is as annoying as the obsessing. All I have to say is theres a time and place for something and in the case of MLP its no different. Im just giving some friendly advice, just as I do to the other haters which is keep your opinions among yourselves. You have your own places, like this thread for example, to talk about it. Please do not try to force it among us.

We dont want to hear about how much you love MLP just as much as you dont want to hear about how much we hate MLP.

If we all get along, we would get along. Thats not the point I made. The point I made was "If we all TRIED to get along, then we would be able to get along".
If that is what you have been trying to do since the thread began then good. Youre on my side.
It would be nice if you could go into the Clubs & Crews. But if they wont let you then theres not much that can be done. Atleast you have this thread.
If you acknowledge that the "Majority of you" try to stay to the thread, then you should be able to easily acknowledge that the majority of you doesnt cover all the MLP fans, it doesnt even cover all of the contributors of this thread. Those are the people this is aimed at.
And no. I was not talking to a child. Just trying to make my point as clear as possible.

Thanks for your understanding.

You see, therein lies the problem. The world is a place of conflicting ideals, most people won't get along even if it's mutually beneficial if they do so.

If that is what you have been trying to do since the thread began then good. Youre on my side.

I am on everyone's side. My position reflects our common interests.

It would be nice if you could go into the Clubs & Crews. But if they wont let you then theres not much that can be done. Atleast you have this thread.

It's nice to know that you can sympathize with us,

If you acknowledge that the "Majority of you" try to stay to the thread, then you should be able to easily acknowledge that the majority of you doesnt cover all the MLP fans, it doesnt even cover all of the contributors of this thread. Those are the people this is aimed at.

There's nothing I can do about the MLP fans in general. If they are so inclined to spam images because they find it funny, they will do so. What this thread and it's contributors have been trying to accomplish is establish a legitimate community for the fandom. We have to provide an example.

And no. I was not talking to a child. Just trying to make my point as clear as possible.

Alright, but avoid condescending language next time.

Thanks for your understanding.

Feeling's mutual.

Wonder what songs and Derpy/Luna cameos we can expect to see this season. Also looking forward to seeing remixes of those songs as well.

as for haters and people who enjoy the show...

In my opinion I feel we do pretty well keeping it to this thread and an occasional picture here and there as long as it is relevant. The new threads only seem to come from people who hate the show, that's great they can have the opinion and such but no need to make a thread about it because it won't end well (mostly because people enjoy the show will possibly be dicks to them). Keep the discussion to this thread and I feel pretty happy about it.

still kind of wish the stores would have Derpy and Luna figures though, they got a Celestia figure so why not Luna/Nightmare Moon and Derpy?

I am hoping hard that Luna will live up to the fanon's expectations of her. She's probably the most popular non-mane 6 pony.

You can tell by my sig.

Give us you Luna figures. We demand it.

Great first episode. I freaking love Discord and knowing that his actor also played 'Q' from Star Trek (not that I watch it) just adds to his epicness. However, I was pretty bummed that Luna was only mentioned in the episode and not actually seen. Lauren Faust has actually said the reason she's not in the series is because the EI standards don't allow for it. Since Luna is associated with shadow and night, the folks at Hasbro decided that she dealt with subjects that were 'too grown-up' for little girls.

Eh. Just something I found interesting. Anyways, can't wait for next week's episode.

(By the way... was I the only one whose mouth dropped when Fluttershy... you know.)

I think the fact that they actually said Luna's name a few times in the new episode helps to confirm this as well. It will be interesting to see how she is used.

Indeed although she will likely appear when a bit older subject matter is brought up possibly anyways. As for other background ponies I await to see some Ditzy/Dinky Doo cameos and possibly the return of Trixie wit ha bit of an attitude change at least.

Do have to like how they made season 2 episode 1 a cliff hanger though, gives you something to look forward to next weekend.

I would love to see that in the actual show.

It's #16 of 16 displayed submissions, but still.

Was going to link but didn't think anyone would want to see it. On the other hand it explains why no one ever sees crap on the ground in the background.
