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.

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'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.)

Holy shit... i thought the exact same thing!!! As soon as i knew it was Chocolate rain, i heard the voice in my head... hahahaha...

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

Same here!!! Discord is quite the BAMF. Also... Bitchy Fluttershy is a boss...


Thank you Ryan for the AWESOME sig!

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.

What if Harmony is a character? Discord is a character, let's say he is the "elements of discord" unified in one entity (which might explain his different parts as well), while the elements of harmony are currently split into the mane six.
It also reads "The Return of Harmony". Could be that the mane six restore harmony to Equestria. Could also be that Harmony in person shows up.
Harmony is also the creator of Celestia and Luna.
Okay now I'm pulling your leg.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Ashens inadvertently made a MLP: FiM reference in his new video about knockoff mlp toys.

Hints:

It has to do with pinkie pie.
He's not aware of it.
It's some time before 5:00.
He's not holding a pony while saying it.

First one to get it right wins nothing.

I just thought of something that would be totally boss!

What if in the second half, Discord sings his own version of the My Little Pony theme song, changed to match the mane six's new personalities?

"Protecting Cloudsdale"
"No more fun"
"A beautiful rock"
"Lying aint' wrong"
"Spreading cruelty"
"It's an easy thing, to break the elements of Harmony, oh My Little Ponies, do you know you'll never be best friends again?"

Just a thought.

I find it odd that older males enjoy the joy My little ponie since it is aimed for more strictly to younger feminine demographic but The plots written for the show are good I admit though I find the Darker themes of the 80s original to be more acceptable with it's traditional animation

What did other people think of the first episode of the second season? I think its pretty similar to the pilot of the first season, which isnt really surprising.
I think it will be epic again once the 2nd season psuedo-pilot is over and it goes back to doing it like it how it did after the original pilot was over.
