    The Pony Movie!

    If the movie does not set the stage for a second movie they will have spent a lot of money and limited their return. Done right the movie will establish a villain that only another movie can concur.

    So, accept whatever they do. Next, set limits on what they can do. Finally, what they must do. Perhaps you should wait for the blu ray?

    Trixie is our Peridot!

    No, well, since I retired I have stopped buying art for use as a storyboard for my screenplay. Started as one pegasus and up to 15 characters. I sort of got carried away. You can see an example in my twitter header. Along the way I had an inspiration for an MLP story, probably worth a standard two episode story. Leaving out everything that does not move the story along. Everything is totally plausible and eventually explains the origin of the Crystal ponies. I try to pitch it to those who are good enough to draw it. I am not interested in making money and I know Hasbro could not do it, too intense. It would have to be a labor of love. I am focusing on finding some real work or moving to a lower cost area and working on my screenplay. I am a morning person so off to bed now, my dreams are as good as any TV program, and no commercials. I see you like Spike, he is a very important part of the story...

    To determine the interest of a person. If someone has a passion they look for opportunities to share that passion. If a person is very analytical they may suppress their passion, perhaps seeing everything in B&W.

    No bad. I used to test time of flight mass spectrometers. Used to as semi retired. You do art right?

    Trixie is our Peridot!

    And that is why I was so impressed with Peridot. Trixie has been slow to grow, but she is growing. And there is no other pony to compare to. I expect both will grow within their respective shows but I think it is currently more fun to listen to Peridot than Trixie. Trixie in EQG was a better example of the character. Both bring fun to their shows and enjoyment in watching them perform. xD I looked at your profile, what do you do?

    I see, something more to do...

    I am hoping that this is an active place, I have a lot to learn, people to meet, the screenplay to write and more. Pleased to meet you.

    Sure. I can learn from many sources. I have a tendency to add life experience to my pony (not MLP) screenplay. Go ahead. I should point out I already have a cookbook of that title.

    I found the trail. I could not decode it to determine what your purpose is, what is your passion. I suppose I should do one for me, I will try to be specific. To create is the bottom line.

    Trixie is our Peridot!

    I will agree to a point, but Trixie still has a ways to go. She is not (yet?) a mane character. They gave her more at the end of this season and that will build. Yes, Starlight is still not reformed enough and too powerful (and that needs an explanation.) I wonder if the pony writers missed an opportunity it make Trixie more important. When she had that wonderful song in the EQG movie they did not play the whole thing. Another missed opportunity. Having a big discussion about Trixie vs Peridot will make the world (at least my world) more entertaining. New episodes in 25 min, seen them, watch them, they are together 11 of 10. Who are you? Pleased to meet you. Code? I test software.

    I have been looking for a reply from someone that has an opinion, pleased to meet you. You don't know the origin of the Crystal ponies, do you? No, guess not, have not told many about that. If I insert an animated GIF will it play? Perhaps you could introduce yourself?

    It is true, in fact, they would get along just fine.
  13. Ha! A thousand years to get her fighting skills even better and when an enemy comes to the gates she winds up hanging from the rafters. Think, if you could pick a pony to keep your back on an adventure Tia is probably not going to get selected. And that is the fault of the writers, they had to keep her in the background as there is no room in the plot for her.

    I need entertainment. There is more to life than just listening to music from Equestria and all connected therein. I expect the posters here to be creators, not just consumers.

    Do Pegasus Really Fly?

    I mean, do they fly like a huge bird. And they do not. It requires magic to allow them to fly slow. As I said in my post.
