Finally! A gathering place in which I can discuss this wonderful show with fellow fans!

Personally, my favorite pony in the Mane Five is Fluttershy. She's so very adorable, and her shyness helps that. I also most appreciate her recent development to be a bit tougher and more liable to stand up for herself. She really is such a genius, if not a simple one, when she just says, "No."

Outside of the five main ponies, I must say that my favorite pony is Applebloom, all hooves down.

Apologies if this has already been asked a million times, but might I inquire as to some of the other fans' favorite ponies? Inside the five main ponies? Outside?

Mane: Fluttershy
Side: Princess Luna
Background: Derpy

Odd setup I know, and considering Luna only had one real episode, that isn't much to base it off of. Hopefully we will see more of her in season three.

Main: Applejack, she's an awesome tough pony, Rainbow comes in at a close second though
Side: Princess Celestia, she's an awesome ruler and Luna is great too she needs more recognition though
Background: Derpy obviously, it's always fun trying to spot her.

Main: Pinkie Pie
Crazy, random, wise, and pretty much unnerving. She does have her breaking point, but you'll go through hell to get to it.

Side: Big Macintosh
Yep.

Background: Derpy
Where in the world is Derpy Pegasi?

This is what I was going to say. So there's no use typing it out again.

I really do hope to see more of Luna, she's a really likable character, and seeing as she's had such a massive impact on Equestria's history it seems unfair to leave her out so much.

I hope we eventually will see her in the season finale somewhere, but sadly I doubt it. She probably isn't cut out for appearing as anything but a villain considering the main demographic the show tries to appeal to. Sigh.

Nah they have shown Luna as being nice in both episodes she has been in, they made sure she was seen as freed from her evil in the Elements of Harmony and they showed her misunderstood side only wanting her subjects to love her in Nightmare Night. So they have already made Luna out to be distant from Nightmare Moon at the same time as having characters relating to it. Nightmare Night did a good job of showing her as just being misunderstood.

Sometimes people seem to think the demographic audience is a lot younger and ignorant than it is...it isn't babies it is 12 year olds etc. they are at the age where they can take in such things, remember back to when you were 12 I am pretty ure you could understand characters with several sides to them, I know I could.

On topic to what was asked, my favourite mane character is a difficult one, Fluttershy is the cutest however I love Twilight for her character the most. If I was asked who I thought was the cutest it would be Fluttershy, but favourite is more up to question with me. For a side character it has to be The Great and Powerful Trixie, for background Derpy.

Also I am personally glad this topic is "dying down", the topic isn't dying it is actually going to being a somewhat normal club. It is nice to have discussions in here but I don't like coming to the club to find it has several pages since the last time I checked on it, when it has a large gap I just tend to ignore the posts on prevous pages. It is good to talk about ponies, but at the same time I don't enjoy having to check on loads of stuff especially if it's only been like a day since I last looked.

Five? I thought there were six...

And my favorite is Rainbow Dash, with Pinkie Pie being a close second. As for secondary ponies, I'd say Derpy Hooves, since she's pretty much an excellent example of the creators interacting with fans.

Honestly, not too sure why I said five. Granted it was 3 in the morning where I was when I wrote that post. I am fully aware that there are, in fact, six ponies :P

Ah well, we all make mistakes.

My second favorite is probably Twilight, because she appeals to my logical and intelligent side more than the other five do. Plus I like magic...

I like how this thread is now. It's a thread which I can always come back to a few minutes after posting and knowing that somebody else has posted something interesting to read. A lot of the other threads I go in, like the Last.fm club or the Gamerscore Leaderboard usually only get between 5-10 posts a day, and sometimes there aren't any posts. It's always a shame, but with this thread it's different. Plus all the users here are pleasant to talk to, whereas it's easy to get a lot of stick from other users in the 2 other threads I mention.

I think it has to do with the topic we're here for. This is the only forum I'm at on NG actually, it's always nice to come here and see some friendly people.

That's a good point, but still, it's always a nice place to come and chat.

Also, I'm uploading to YouTube so I'm not able to stream the new episode. I'll catch it on YouTube in HD in a bit thought, heard nothing about it so far so it should be a nice surprise.

Wow, Big Mac just said more than Applejack. You know that some serious shit has gone down when Big Mac speaks more than one word.

Yeah. Episode felt a little weird to me for some reason. They made so many subtle and not so subtle references I lost track.

To name a couple would be the Great and Powerful Trixie reference and Twilight's old doll Smartypants which Big Mac is still in possession of.

Also, I really liked the spa scene for some reason.

Great to see those two received a shout-out in this episode.

Also, I really liked the spa scene for some reason.

"I don't like having my hooves touched!"

Nice to see it ended with Diamond Tiara being stripped of her power after she was shown to be abusing it. Big Mac saying more than one word while Applejack did the opposite was also real nice.

Wow I was worried this episode would be one of my least favorites, but it proved to be great! It was pretty cool how they mentioned Trixie again, all though we didn't get to see anymore of her. Sorry about being so late to the discussion, I've had stuff to do.

The moral for the episode:
School newspapers all suck.
All of them.
That I know of.
The best way to make them better is to draw cocks on all the pictures, use some whiteout and a pen, and make your own better stories. And leave the paper in plain sight so someone will pick it up and marvel in your creativity.

One thing that got to me was that the ponies had dog like tails under their fur. But in episode two of season one, Rarity cut her tail pretty high up. Either she has an unusually short tail under there, or the reason foals had such long tails underneath was that they stop growing after a while. I'm looking way too deep into it I know, but still.

Sorry I haven't been posting at all yesterday or earlier today, my internet was down, and I currently have my laptop plugged into the modem because it can't find our wi-fi. And yes, it is one of those crappy broadband modems that has the wireless function built right in.

What you do is on the Xbox, you go to where you view all your pictures on your flashdrive or computer, highlight the one you want as the theme, and at the bottom of the screen there should be an option for "Set as background". I believe it's "Y' button. Note: choose your computer instead, since for some reason, it'll say there aren't any pictures on it if you chose the flashdrive.

Getting back on topic, just watched the new episode a few minutes ago because of the problem I mentioned at the beginning of my post, and withing the first minute or two it was already one of my favorite episodes.

Here's a preview clip for next week's episode, Poniator does it again, and sunday papers are gonna feature a pony-esque comic tomarrow.

Is it just my faulty hearing, or did Big Mac's VA sound a little different from last appearances? Also, Fluttershy has been crying far too often as of recent. Hopefully she'll be able to man up in the season finale.

But yeah, you would think that after all those episodes, (namely "Dragonshy" and "Putting Your Hoof Down") she'd get over this stuff without trouble. Oh well.

I guess reverting to a habit is much easier than holding onto a positive change, who hasn't been there?

Man, this week's episode was so completely awesome... I was not at all disappointed. I've noticed a lot of extremely fluid and detailed bits of animation when Diamond Tiara has the Cutie Mark Crusaders against the wall and says "And it BETTER. BE. JUICY." as she closes in.

Interpret that as you will.

And when Twilight nods her head towards Rarity when Rainbow contemplates getting a hooficure :p

Definitely one of my favs. AGAIN, SO MUCH CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!

loved it.

***SPOILERS***

When I realized this was a CMC ep, I was expecting it to be very blah... which it kinda was for me. But it wasn't as blah as I expected. As mentioned before, REFERENCES.

Also... Applebloom's face when they are all at the table. i'll try to get a pic of it. And of course Rarity's face when she realizes they printed her diary.

Big Mac was quite terrifying with his major speaking role. I picked up on that whole bit as soon as AJ said, "Nope."

Good ep. Kinda daunting that this season is coming to a close.

Here is the face i mentioned.

The Great And Powerful Trixie finally makes her appearance again. It isn't as big as hoped, but at least there is something about her. I can only hope there is more Trixie in the future.

The episode was awesome, all them references. Also I love Rainbow Dash at the spa.

DARN THAT BOBBY BLABBY!
KEVIN DOES NOT HAVE THE WORLD'S LARGEST COLLECTION OF SPANDEX BIKER SHORTS!

Because almost every MLPFIM episode is similar to another episode of a different show.
Which is ok because it shows something like, I dunno, something like they try to be a serious show with real cliches or something.

Or TV's been around for so long that there are no original ideas.
