  1. Lately, I've been curious about hookahs, and I might get one.

     

    If any of you are hookah smokers, what flavors would you recommend? And should I get my hookah on Amazon or from the store downtown that sells bongs and hookahs? IDK which would be cheaper, price-wise.

     

    And before somepony say, "Smoking a hookah is like smoking 100 cigarettes," please watch this: [LINK]

     


  2. Are there any bronies in the state of Virginia, specifically near or in the town of Blacksburg?

    About 4-5 years ago, I attended a small group of bronies over at Virginia Tech, the college I live near and work in one of the food courts at, every Saturday from 6-8pm. I haven't attended in several years, and I don't know if they're still doing it or not. The only member of the group that I still know of is Blank Check (his YouTube channel), but we're barely even acquaintances since we never really talked to each other.

    If anypony out there are near or in the Blacksburg area, maybe we could arrange a meetup and do, brony things, such as talk about the show, it's characters and theme, do art, discuss out headcanons and our OCs and fanfics, etc. You know, fun stuff. :mlp_yeehaa:

    I believe gathering fellow bronies/pegasisters and forming new friendships would be good for all of us, especially me because I'm usually in my room on the computer all day if I'm not at work, and that's not good for my mental health, considering it's been going downhill for years due to my mother's abuse. :worry:


  3. Hey, does anypony know how to be in The Rift Café? :mlp_huh: What do you have to do be a par of that?
    I've been wanting to in those vids for quite a long time, I think quite a few of us have. It must be an honor, having your own door in that place.

     

    I wonder how many non-pony (not including Changelings) characters are in there? The only few I know are Dr. Wolf (wolf, duh), Silver Quill (hippogryph), and Tyandaga (deer).
    Will they accept a shape-shifting alien that takes the form of an alicorn? An alien, mind ya, from a different universe.

  4. Hey, everypony!

    I'm in need of vectors for 2 of my OCs in various positions and with various facial expressions. These are gonna be used for my YouTube vids.

    And the designs of are simple, but I need 2 versions of one of them, Millennium Shadow, specifically. He has 2 color schemes, one of them being his true colors (literally) and the other being a part of his disguise.

    Can you help me out? If you'll willing to help me out, messages me, subject being "Request: OC Images Sets." 

     

    Thank you. -hugs- /)

    It's more acceptable to drink if the bottle is cute or small or pink or <insert any positive characteristic here>. It makes you feel more like a victim instead of an alcohol. Personally, I drink mostly beer to keep my drinking problem at a manageable level. Today, my excuse to get drunk is Friday. Besides, I haven't gotten drunk in the middle of the week at all this week, which makes it even more justified. :good:

    How does drinking alcohol from a "cute" or small bottle make you feel more like a victim than "an alcohol"? I'm a little confused, here. :confused:

    Beer is like smoothie compared to Jack Daniel's. Even though the strong taste is not one of my favorites, it's pretty hard not to drink too fast and way too much. The hangover can also be a real nightmare. I guess it's okay if you can drink sophisticated and small quantities.

    I'm desensitized to it's smell by now. I'm hoping I'll get used to the taste. I want to share some of the Tennessee Honey Jack Daniel's with a friend of mine. :squee:

  7. Hey, call Berry Punch because I'm talking about booze! :pinkie:

    Later today, I'll be going to my local liquor store, Virginia ABC, and I'll be getting some good old-fashioned Jack Daniel's Old No.7:mlp_yeehaa:
    Stuff's been around for 153 years, ever since 1866. Stuff must be doing something right for it to be sticking around for this long. :ooh:
    Instead of getting a 750ml (¾lt) bottle, I'll be getting a 50ml bottle to sample it (hopefully they'll have it). This adorable thing:
    jack_daniels_50ml__78040.1446174257.jpg
    That bottle is just too cute! :mlp_icwudt:
    I have heard good things about this stuff, and I'm hoping it's worth it.

    Have any of you had Old No.7 before? If so, how was it?
    Can you tell me if it has that disgusting, bitter alcohol taste that beer and wine have? :mlp_gag: I'm hoping it doesn't.
    My first beer was a Blue Moon, BTW. Had it on my 21st B-Day. 
    :P


  8. I've only know about transgenderism for a couple of years now. I never had any problem with it; people can live however they want, as long as they're not hurting anybody.

     

    I came out as a trans mare (see what I did, there? :derp:) over a week ago, and I feel better about myself now that I have. I'm thankful to have friends who are supportive of me.
    I'll start transitioning once I lose enough weight. Just so you know, I won't be getting the surgery hormonal therapy because those are a little too extreme for me.

     

    My birth sex is male, but a friend said I display more feminine traits, not that's a bad thing, mind ya.

    So, is anypony on here trans? If so, when/how did you come out?

    Holy fuck, how haven't I seen this yet up until now?

     

    As one of the biggest Nightmare Moon fans on the planet, I find your theory really interesting.

     

    The "Celestia murdered Luna, put in a clone on her place, and disguised herself as Nightmare Moon" part felt like pretty big stretch, though.

     

    But the part about Celestia being the selfish and evil one who just doesn't want to give up her role as worshiped leader and princess was really good.

     

    I'll probably make a second post here where I go more into the details about my thoughts on your theory because, right now, I'm really tired.

     

    Overall, good theory. Some parts are a bit much, but I'm glad I found this thread, and I'll definitely come back to it.

    I'm glad you enjoyed my theory. -hugs- /)

    When I told a friend of mine this theory, they linked me to this. This issue proves Celestia is a know-it-all.

     

    And if you're interested in hearing my other MLP theories, I'd be more than happy to share.

    Let me guess, Luna fan.

    I am a Luna fan, yes, but that's not what fueled this.

    Celestia basically mentally abused Luna for not letter her get any recognition and pushing her aside. Luna's rebellion and transforming into Nightmare Noon was simply exaggerated by Celestia in the story to make her look more villainous. All Luna was during was standing up for herself, maybe even giving her a taste of her own medicine, too.

  11. You remember the Mare in the Moon story we're told at the very start of the show? Well, I have a theory that will expose it as a lie...

    What were we told from the story? Celestia and Luna were 2 sisters that raised and lowered the Sun and Moon, but Luna became jealous because she wasn't getting any attention and decided to not lower the Moon one night. After that, she became Nightmare Moon, and Celestia reluctantly used the Elements of Harmony to banish Nightmare Moon on the Moon for 1000 years, and the show starts one the 1000th year.

     

    I don't think this is actually true. No, I believe Celestia told everypony this story...in reverse. :dash:

     

    If you pay attention to Celestia's behavior and mentality while interacting with Luna throughout the series, she seems to have a know-it-all and "I come first" attitude. It implies that Celestia pushes Luna aside while she gets the spotlight. If you take this and apply it with my theory that Celestia is using the concept of friendship to brainwash and indoctrinate everypony to expand her kingdom, then you can see that Celestia is pretty arrogant, manipulative, and controlling.
    So, when you look at the Mare in the Moon story from Luna's point of view, all she wanted was some of the attention and some credit, but the ponies did their thing during the day while sleeping during the night. It's clear that Luna felt left out and unappreciated. Remember when the story said that Luna wanted the night to last forever and turned evil when she refused to listen to Celestia? The story is making Luna look like a spoiled brat for not getting her way. Doesn't it seem like the story is trying to make Luna look like the bad guy while glorifying Celetsia at the same time? I think Celestia herself wrote the Mare in the Moon story, and she did it in a way that will make her look good and Luna bad. This gives off the impression to the story's readers that Celestia is the superior princess and the one you need to trust, and this, in turn, will make everypony discredit and disregard Luna.

     

    I could leave this here, but I think there's more to this. What if the Luna we've seen isn't the real Luna? What if...the original Luna was murdered by Celestia?
    "Oh, buck off, there's no way that Celestia would do something like this!
    :glimmer:" you Celestia fans out there, but just hear me out, here.

     

    When Luna refused to lower the Moon, the story claimed she was being a brat, but she was trying to stand up for herself from Celestia's mental abuse towards her. After Luna transformed herself into Nightmare Moon, Celestia realized that she wasn't gonna stay submissive and obedient to her authority anymore, so she decided to murder Luna to make sure her authority and rule wouldn't be challenged or overthrown. After the murder, Celestia told everypony that Luna went rogue, but this was a story she used to gain the trust and support from her subjects. So, Celestia basically covered up Luna's murder in order to protect her reputation and to keep her power. Celestia knew that somepony could eventually figure out the conspiracy, so she decided to make a clone of Luna as a fail-safe so she wouldn't be found out. When the events of the first 2 episodes took place, it was time for Celestia to fake Nightmare Moon's return. Remember when Celestia seem to disappear and Nightmare Moon appeared? I believe that the Nightmare Moon we see in those first 2 episodes was really Celestia in disguise. This explains why Celestia was missing without any trace or explanation. When Nightmare Moon was defeated, Celestia put the Luna clone in her place, and she reappeared, making it look like she was released from where Nightmare Moon supposedly banished her to. The idea that Nightmare Moon was Celestia in disguise makes sense because, after Nightmare Moon was defeated, she appeared out of nowhere. Again, we're giving NO explanation for how Celestia supposedly disappeared by Nightmare Moon and where she was. It makes all of this seem to be a set up. And did you ever notice how easily Nightmare Moon was defeated? I mean, she didn't even put up a fight. And all the damage she made was easily reversible.

     

    Now, where does the "told on reverse" bit come in?
    Celestia didn't want competition from her sister when it came to ruling Equestria. Luna was the one who was trying to reason with Celestia about sharing the rule 50-50, but Celestia wasn't about to give any of it up. This is what the "Luna refused to lower the Moon to make room for the day" bit was really; it was a metaphor of one not sharing the power with the co-ruler and keeping it to themselves. The Mare in the Moon story shifted this aspect onto Luna, to make her look like the corrupted one.

    The Luna clone (the Luna we see in the show) was given the false memory that was the Mare in the Moon story by Celestia to make sure that the lie wouldn't be exposed, and her agenda would continue to be fulfilled without interruption...

     

    What do you think of this theory? :fluttershy:

  12. I became a brony around when the first Equestria Girls movie came out in mid 2013. And when I first watched it, I noticed that its plot and execution is almost identical to the first 2 episodes of Friendship is Magic, Friendship is Magic, Part 1 and Friendship is Magic, Part 2.

     

    Here's my theory: The Equestria Girls universe is the real Friendship is Magic universe, while the Friendship is Magic show we all know and love is what Twilight is writing in her diary every day. The show is probably how Twilight is presenting her experiences, adding various concepts to make the diary entries more interesting.

     

    These are the things that both the movie and the first 2 episodes of the show had in common:
    ▶ Twilight enters a new environment that's outside of her comfort zone
    ▶ Twilight has to make new friends that
    ▶ Twilight has a hard time fitting in at first
    ▶ Twilight has to get the McGuffin.

     

    However, the antagonist for both are different: Nightmare Moon for the show, Sunset Shimmer for the movie. Again, the show is being told from Twilight point of view, so a few things in the show and movies won't be identical.

    If this is theory, then Twilight would've been transferred to Canterlot High School from her previous school when she moved. Being in a new school, she's nervous and being in a new and unfamiliar environment. When talking with Celestia as an attempt to learn more about the school so she won't feel so alien. And when Celestia mentioned the a crown for the school dance, Twilight saw this as an opportunity to gain respect and acknowledgement. Sunset, being the most popular girl in the school (portrayed as the school bully in the diary entries) didn't want to be replaced, so she thought of how to get rid of any competition.
    But after a few days, Twilight was still feeling like she didn't belong or if anypony cared, but Celestia suggested that she go make some friends, but Twilight was a bit nervous to introduced herself, but she remembered that, if she befriended the right individuals, she'd had an easier time in getting the crown and becoming the princess of the school dance.
    Sunset wasn't having any of that and tried to make Twilight look bad so she wouldn't be allowed to apply for school dance princess, but Twilight's friends managed to clear her name.

     

    So, what do you think of this theory? I know it sounds like the "it's all in their head" cliché, but this theory is supposed to explain that the Equestria Girlsmovies is the real MLP universe, and the show is what Twilight is writing in her diary but soon makes the diary into a book of stories to entertain herself The rest of the Mane Six also enjoyed reading these stories, and Twilight let them write their own contributing stories, which translates as each of the Mane Six having their own episode in the series.
    Several concepts and characters from the show were either based on something/somepony or made up entirely for the stories that were being written.


  13. For many years, MLP has does us that "friendship is magic" (roll credits XD), but is it really? I have reason to believe that, ever since we've started watching Friendship is Magic, Celestia has been lying and manipulating everypony, and even us! "Celestia is a great princess and leader, and she'd never plan a conspiracy!" you may be typing right now. Well, I'm sorry to tell you, but Celestia hasn't been honest with anypony, and I'm gonna expose her!

     

    First, have you noticed that, whenever the Cutie Map summons a number of the Mane Six to an area, they try to make the inhabitants of said area to become friends with them, it would even forced on the inhabitants of the area, while disregarding their objections and their own ways of life and beliefs. If they turn down the friendship offer, the Mane Six treat them like they're wrong and the bad guy for refusing the offer, basically shaming them. However, if they accept the offer, it's always after the Mane Six solve a problem they've been dealing with for some time, and they appear to be more willing to do what the Mane Six ask of them. In case you didn't put the pieces together so far, basically, the friendship bond that the Mane Six try to make others apply makes them more submissive to authority, Celestia, in this case. Speaking of Celestia, when she tells the Mane Six what to do and where to go, if you pay close attention to it, it sounds like Celestia knows more about the area she's sending the Mane Six to than she's saying, even using the "but I don't know much about this area" card so she doesn't look suspicious. This part of the episode may seem like exposition and Celestia giving the Mane Six some info about the area they're going to and some warnings, but it seems more like instructions. When take this into consideration, it's quite possible that Celestia herself controls the Cutie Map.

    "Okay, but what's Celestia's 'agenda,' as you're claiming she has?" you're asking. Celestia's agenda is about expanding her kingdom by using the concept of friendship make other more submissive and obedient to her rule and authority. If you're friends with somepony, you'll lower your guard and be more open to them, and this, in turn, makes you more likely to do something if they ask you.

    Believe it or not, we have an example of Celestia's agenda being take into effect: The Crystal Empire.

    In The Crystal Empire, Part 1, Celestia explains the Crystal Empire to Twilight, but if you take a closer look at Celestia story, you can tell that it doesn't sound right and maybe even fabricated. She says that King Sombra was an evil king that enslaved his people. But I ask you, what proof do we have of that, outside of Celestia's story? We don't. So, this was just a story Celestia told Twilight so she'll be biased, supportive, and obedient to Celestia's instructions. So, yeah, Celestia's story of King Sombra is just that, a story. Celestia said that her knowledge of the Crystal Empire "was very limited," but I don't think this is true.

    So, prior to Cadance 's and Shining's journey to the Crystal Empire, Celestia gave Cadance a memory-wiping spell and a false memory spell to use on the Crystal Ponies. The memory-wiping spell was used so the Crystal Ponies would forget the good things King Sombra has done for them, and the false memory spell was used to implant the false memory that King Sombra was an evil king that enslaved his people into the Crystal Ponies' minds. When a Crystal Pony asked Twilight, "Were we really gone 1000 years?" she then appears to be in pain after she asked and we see some creepy eyes show up as a mental image, which appear to be Sombra's, and this was a failsafe of the spells that were put on the Crystal Ponies and activates whenever they question what they've been told about their past. This was the spells' way of saying, "Do not question what you've been told!" And those eyes may actually be Celestia's because we've seen her eyes like this before, when she was giving Twilight instructions prior to arriving at the Crystal Empire. Also, the Sombra we see in episodes The Crystal Empire, Parts 1 & 2 may actually have been an illusion that Celestia (or Cadence) made to make it look like her fictitious story was true. This way, the Crystal Ponies will be more willing and likely to accept Cadence and Shining as they're new rulers because it was staged to look like they were being rescued. And it's possible that the original King Sombra (who was a good king and supportive of his people) was murdered when Cadance and Shining arrived at the Crystal Empire, and the "gone for 1000 years" bit may have been a part of the false memory spell.

    But after all is said and done, it's not really Shining and Cadence that's ruling the Crystal Empire, it's actually Celestia.
    With Cadence in charge, Celestia can rule the Crystal Empire through Cadence by giving her instructions under the table and behind closed doors.

    The Mane Six are completely unaware that Celestia is using friendship to brainwash others.
    By only showing the Mane Six the positives of friendship, Celestia can manipulate them to do her bidding with getting her hooves dirty.
    And Celestia may really a queen and uses the "princess" title to make her seem more harmless so nopony would suspect her of any conspiracy. I wouldn't put it past her of unleashing or creating some of the enemies the Mane Six come across to distract them so they wouldn't think to look at Celestia as the source of these problems. This way, Celestia won't get caught and her agenda can be fulfilled without being noticed.

     

    So, what do you think of this theory? Is Celestia really a kind princess of Equestria, or is that merely a façade to mask her agenda?

  14. Hello, everypony! I'm new here, and it's nice to meet other bronies on the internet. :awesomedash:

    I've been a brony since my sophomore year of high school, back in 2013. I was introduced to it by some friends I sat with at lunch, and I fell in love with it ever since. If I never became a brony in the first place, I wouldn't have as many friends as I do now, and I would still be in my shell and more asocial.

    Ask me anything you wanna know about me, if you want to. :lunaslurp:

     

    Oh, and Happy Hearth's-Warming!
