    What would you say is the most meh episode?

    This episode I felt nearly damaged Applejack as a character for me. Being raised in the farming lifestyle and to NOT be as efficient with the chores as shown unsettled me. The writers made her appear dimwitted and shortsighted. They might as well have made her pick apples individually by hoof. Although, she did help the spa out first before relaxing, so there is points there I guess.

    What would you say is the most meh episode?

    I would have to give my vote for P.P.O.V. It wasn't bad, just didn't linger as long as the others. With three view points explained yet no clear explanation as to what actually happened between the three, all we get for the episode was that there is a harbor somewhere and a new creature that felt too shoehorned in. In the end it just left me wanting...

    Chrysalis Is A Good Person

    I know we called an end to this, but I just have to add my two cents. The first point about Starlight is hard to believe. Starlight may be OP, but I doubt she is can read minds. I believe she said this on an assumption. Your second point though, I'm gonna agree with you on this! It has been bugging (hehe) me why she made those expressions. Chrysalis may very well be afraid to change at that very sudden diversion in her life. And that is a perfect irony for her character: A changeling queen who is scared to change inside. It's got "feels" written all over it! Me neither. And i'm sure if the show writers took the comics into canon, this whole conversation would possibly be for nothing...

    What is the best first episode?

    If I were to get others started on this show, it would be The Cutie Map part 1. It's got all the main six and a brief look into their personalities, plenty of funny moments, an interesting plot, and leaves the viewer on a cliff hanger, encouraging them to keep watching.

    Lyra and Bon Bon Fan Club

    It's about time these two got their own thread.

    Chrysalis Is A Good Person

    Oh, I have no doubt that her backstory is gonna happen. It can't NOT happen. And after all the theories in this discussion flying around, I don't think I could wait! I have always been a sucker for sob-stories, so I am really hoping now that your ideas will eventually come to light. All of this has made me think of what Chrysalis could become even more than usual. And the end result in all instances are awesome! For her and the universe as a whole.

    Chrysalis Is A Good Person

    Wow... That's the same logic a serial killer would give to a judge. Judge: "Do you care to explain yourself for your deeds?" Accused: "They picked on me when i was little. So I made them suffer." Judge: "..."

    Is this the national anthem of MLP world?

    I immediately thought of this song as an anthem. It just feels to patriotic! Although I'm not sure if anthems in mlp can apply to just countries, but also to cites and towns. As you say, Cloudsdale has their own. This anthem, I feel, would be perfect for Canterlot.

    Chrysalis Is A Good Person

    Ha! Anyway... this has been fun, but yes, this has run it's course. If someone is so passionate about a certain view, they're not going to look at the wider horizon. I had one more piece of evidence that would have but the proverbial nail in Chrysailis' coffin, but this argument has become a tedium now. What we all can agree on is that the deposed changeling queen has an EXTREMELY vague history, has motivations surrounding love (via attrition), and has done some things during the shows current run time that have negatively affected the vast populace. Case adjourned!

    Chrysalis Is A Good Person

    I have no doubt that Chrysalis loved her people to begin with, but I'm afraid that her being a villain is in her blood. And it has shown as her time seeking love became more desperate. Love, hate, heroism and villainy are all in the eyes of the beholder, but I mean really? She out right says that she was going to use her own people as storage vessels to return all the love they gathered to herself! Sooner or later one has to look at themselves and think if they're really doing the right thing not just for their own kind, but for the many. Her changelings followed her with the promise never being hungry again and because they had no other option. Did they not all immediately turn on her when they found an alternative?

    New episodes confirmed for 2018

    So much more to see and do! I've talked about this a little already on another thread, but the zebra lands have been utterly ignored so far also. Along with including exploring Ember's new reign, Trixie's and Twilight's conflicting personalities, and the griffin's acceptance of good nature. I mean, c'mon! Applejack's parents for goodness sake! We still don't know anything about them. Explaining something grim like that could be a great challenge to the writing staff. "Tanks for the memories" could be a good leaping off point for this. Here's hoping anyway.

    Their's a weird side to friendship !

    I'm so glad (or shamed) that I have to. Still, I'm unnerved.

    Fallout: Equestria!

    I stumbled onto the resource site, but I had no idea a flash game was being made! This is all kinds of awesome!

    What happens to ponies who befriends humans

    Fallout: Equestria is definitely for you then. From those stories, magical strength can be almost limitless. As far as ponies being experimented on or eaten... you haven't got a cynical view. It's just the cold hard truth haha. Humans are nothing if not vain. We as a species cannot go into a relationship if it's not mutually beneficial.

    What's the first episode you watched?

    Party of One was my first. To begin with it was just an investigation into where all the pony memes were coming from, starting with Pinkie's crazed derp face. Watched the episode, enjoyed the high jinx... then proceeded to watch the first season in reverse chronological order (I have a very bad habit of doing this with new show that intrgue me but not committed to yet). Then season two started and I became hooked with Lesson Zero.

    New episodes confirmed for 2018

    As much as I'm over the moon about this, I feel that any great show has to end on a high note. There is nothing worse than having a favorite show overstay its welcome and remembered for being stale. All I want is that they work on introducing more regular characters and build around their lives. I had hoped that Sunburst would become one. Nope... Maybe Trixie? Thorax even?

    Chrysalis Is A Good Person

    I like this idea. It's actually been explored quite a bit here - Very interesting and very feasible. Chrysalis will always be the proper villain I feel. But this gives her a very good damn reason for it all.

    Hiya all

    Okay, I'll try and make this as awkward free and brief as possible. As I believe the trend here to be, I've been lurking in the fandom for quite some time. (Late season one to be exact), and only now have I finally decided to get to know this amazing group more. Being from a family and area that looks upon this wonderful fandom as "disconcerting", I've never really had the courage to be apart of this community openly. I myself like to write (hence my chosen name) but have always thought of myself as a hobby writer rather than anything too serious, (hence again my name, hehe). Haven't written any mlp fics of yet, mainly my own original concepts, mostly revolving around animals and supernatural themes. I am aiming to add to the already huge list of fics out there, but much later. Anywhoo, I look forward to mingling amongst you great people, and here's to hoping this fandom is as kind as I've always believed it to be.

    hey there!

    You betcha! It took me a while to build up the confidence to open up when I become a brony years ago. And since I've been here, I've had nothing but a great time, and since then I've had no problems knowing I like cutesy ponies. With all your favorites and ships (AppleDash for the win!), you're gonna fit in just fine. Enjoy your stay, and welcome!

    Fallout: Equestria!

    From what I know, yeah, Heros is not complete yet. "No one" has said that he's only a few chapters away from finishing it. Read the first few chapters now and noticed the upload dates between them, so I'll be slowing down my reading. Nothing worse than getting to the end of the completed stuff and then have to wait. ESPECIALLY during the middle of the third act. And thanks for the links. I'll check them out!

    Lets talk about Zecora

    It has been irking me since DHX first began airing the new title sequence since Twilight's coronation. And each episode I'm only reminded of it. In the group photo, Zecora is there, yet only being a part of an episode when a brief exposition is needed and nothing more. I would love it if we could get more of a backstory on her. She is clearly resourceful, intelligent, and capable of taking charge when things go bad, (Queen Chrysalis' takeover in the second alternate present with Zecora leading a resistance, not to mention leading a final charge against the changeling Queen herself!) She has some very admirable qualities that could be explored. This also begs the question of why she traveled to ponyville to begin with? I'm gonna be tapping into my own headcanon a little bit, so bear with me. (also note that I haven't read any fanfics on Zecora, so if I've stumbled onto yours its completely coincidental). There had to be a reason why such a figure left her community. I haven't read any of the comics, so I have no idea if this has already been looked into or not, but I've always figured her leaving her home for a secluded place in the middle of a dangerous forest on the other side of the world a bit... sketchy. A master of shaman, who's compassionate and always willing to help, doesn't seem like the type that would be banished from her home for wrong doing. The nice reason (not as exciting though) I'm thinking is that she just got bored and moved on. But that's no fun, and doesn't explain her living in isolation now. I believe she's on the run. Zecora was the elder (or what title she went by) of her community before something dreadful happened at her home land and now someone is after her. She's had to flee from those aggressors and those she may have failed, possibly children, explaining the nursery rhymes sung in her native tongue when we first meet her. Using the cover of the Everfree forest and keeping interaction to a minimum, Zecora can still be the wise caring zebra we know her for, but be safe enough that if word got out, she could simply hide and wait for whatever's after her to blow over. Tell me what you guys think. Do you like this idea? Is there a possibility of her character being fleshed out in season seven?

    Lets talk about Zecora

    So many people having such happier ideas for her has made me realize that I've got a very grim-dark mind... That would be the only issue with me. As much as I like this theory, I don't really like the fact she might move on. That would be like saying goodbye to the silent friend of the group. Although It would be for a good reason I suppose.
