    Ponyville Ciderfest

    Who here is going to Ponyville Ciderfest? I'm debating whether or not I want to go and get Kazumi Evans, Shannon Chan-Kent, and Rebecca Shoichet to sign my movie poster. Pros: After getting Tabitha's signature last year, I would have 4/7 of the Mane 6's voice actresses signatures I can enjoy roughly a day's worth of pony entertainment. Cons: I have to pay ~$100 for admittance and the aforementioned signatures. I will most likely be in attendance alone, as I have no IRL friends who are bronies, or even casually interested enough to attend to justify the price of admission. If anyone else were in the same position I am, maybe we could form a meet-up there!

    Best Gift Ever Discussion

    10/10 great holiday special, I'm looking forward to watching it every year for Christmas! I think every pony had their moment(s), and the magical reindeer weren't as bad as I thought they were going to be.
  3. Hey everypony! Several months ago, my love of G4 started me down a path of collecting the old gen stuff (G1-3.5). I pretty much just indiscriminately bought any figures I saw, mostly from rummage sales, thrift stores, etc. and I'm wanting now to pare down my collection to what I've deemed essential. That having been said, here is first a list of the ponies I would like to add to my collection (12 in all): Gen 1 - Blue Belle (Collector Ponies) - Applejack (not picky here if I get a Year 2 or Year 3) - Posey (Year 3) - Sparkler (Year 3) - Surprise (Year 3) - Majesty - Fizzy - Shady Gen 3 - Rarity (not picky, but preferably not the 3D symbol) - Twilight Twinkle (not picky) - Fluttershy (not picky) - Rainbow Dash (not picky) Here is a list of ponies that I am willing to trade (54 in all). All are in roughly the same gently used condition. More detailed descriptions and photos will be provided upon request, because this is a ton of ponies. Gen 1 Baby Blossom Baby Cotton Candy Baby Firefly Baby Glory Baby Gusty Baby Moondancer Baby Shady Baby Stockings The Holiday Pony (Mail Order Exclusive) Blossom (25th Anniversary Re-release) Cherries Jubilee Confetti Dancing Butterflies (Twice as Fancy) Flower Bouquet (Merry-Go-Round) Flutterbye Flutterpony Honeysuckle (no wings) Flutterpony Lilly (no wings) Glory x2 Gusty Lemon Drop Mainsail Medley Moondancer Parasol Peachy Pinwheel Romper (tail spinning feature broken) Skydancer Sunbeam Sunlight Sweet Stuff Tootsie Windy Gen 2 Sundance Gen 3 Butterscotch Darling Dahlia Daybreak Forsythia Hidden Treasure Minty (IV?) Mittens Pinkie Pie McDonald's Happy Meal Rainbow Dash Royal Beauty Scootaloo McDonald's Happy Meal Star Swirl Summer Bloom Sunny Daze Sweet Sparkle Twinkle Twirl Gen 3.5 Cheerlie Pinkie Pie x3 McDonald's Happy Meal Rainbow Dash Sweetie Belle

    Hi

    Don't we all, Pink Pony, don't we all. Welcome to Equestria Daily! It's great to have you here!

    The new guy!

    How's it going, @Voiceman! Nice to meet you! I haven't been a fan nearly as long as you have (I got all caught up during the Season 5 Hiatus), and only recently joined EqD, but I feel like I've sure missed out on a lot of fun. Are you active on EqD Proper, or just the forums here? If you haven't created a disqus or FB account to comment on there you should. That's where most of the fun goes down, it seems.
  6. Hi @SSBBFan4please take this in the spirit it's given, and you can do whatever you'd like with my advice. I would say the answer to your question is: You can't, for a few reasons. 1) This is the easy one. Let's imagine the girls are under 18, as it's not really possible with an unfixed timeline to determine exactly how old they are. In the real world, you can't take chances. We call these questionably legal girls 'jail-bait' for a reason, my friend. 2)This is where I may be the one overthinking this, but I would say that if this issue is weighing heavily enough on your mind to create a forum discussion about it, then despite your comments to the contrary this may not be healthy for you to continue. Partly it depends on what exactly your 'relationship' with the girls looks like. Is it clopping, talking to or treating a plush/doll like a real person? If the answer is yes to any of the above, I think you may want to try at least taking a break from them while you reconsider this. (Also, just for curiosities sake: are you in an open relationship with all the Equestria Girls, or just one or two in particular?). Also, when you mention that you don't forsake real women, are you currently in a relationship? If so, ask yourself how this would sound to your significant other. If she would object, fiction is not worth losing flesh-and-blood for. If she knows and is fine with it, then carry on. Maybe you could talk her into some role-play. If you aren't in a relationship, consider if maybe there are subconscious or subtle ways that this could be impacting/influencing your real-life relationships. Maybe you're not trying hard enough because you're content with the waifus, or maybe you feel like you'll never find a real girl as great as your waifu. In summation; the colorful ponies and their human counterparts are a fun diversion from the burdens of daily living, but they aren't something ultimate. In general, we- myself included- could all fix our eyes on something greater. If this didn't help at all, disregard. But I hope you find the answers to your deeper questions. God bless, man!

    hello I'm new to this site

    @PretendPrawn262, sounds look you joined just before I did; I started catching up on the series during the Season 5 hiatus. And yeah, I always thought (and still do, tbh) that bronies are strange. The only thing I'm not agreeing with you on is the musical numbers. I guess in this regard you're more Rainbow Dash a la 'Rarity Takes Manhattan', and I'm more Rarity.

    Season 8, Episode 16: Friendship University

    Just had to rewatch that specific scene; agreed, very adorable. That's why Twilight is my favorite pony :')

    Season 8, Episode 16: Friendship University

    What 'mhm' are you referring to? I love the cute and quirky, blink-and-you-miss-them character moments, and I must have missed that one. Anyways, it's just always interesting seeing what small moments others liked. The Twilight one I took away from this was her response to Flim and Flam asking if she thought her disguise would fool anybody; Perfectly adorable, exasperated expression, and a great 'No' to go along with it <3

    Burgers

    I'm from Wisconsin (Milwaukee, specifically) and we're pretty spoiled here with tons of good custard stands. Since most people want something salty to go with their sweet (or a little 'main course' before the 'dessert') most of them serve burgers too, and the place that has the best is Kopp's. If you ever find yourself for whatever reason in town, going there is an absolute must. But if we're speaking strictly of (inter)national franchises, than who am I to judge? In my opinion, Wendy's > Burger King > McDonald's.

    Hi, I'm new here! ^w^

    Welcome to EqD's forums. You'll find that apart from introductions, not much goes on here, really. But it's a nice place for fellow pony-lovers to know there are others like them!

    Any Comic Collectors Here?

    As I mentioned in my introduction post, I'm a huge comic collector. I've always just kind of been into them, probably because my oldest brother collected them so he always had one on hand that I could read growing up. I didn't start seriously collecting until high school, and even though my brother mainly had Spider-man books, I got heavily into X-men; I suppose it's because there were more characters to be interested in, but I probably couldn't list all the reasons that I love them now. My collection is pretty impressive for a guy in his early-mid twenties. I have about thirty long-boxes (for those not in the know, they each fit about 300 bagged and boarded comics), and half of them are X-men related. I plan on going all the way back to the beginning with X-men #1 (1963), the first appearance of the team and Magneto. Right now, my collection of X-men Proper runs from #19-66, a spattering of the reprint issues, and Giant-Size/X-men #94- present day. I also have most of the spin-off titles, though with so much material published since the X-men debuted 55 years ago it's hard to keep track of sometimes! I have a lot of first-appearances and key issues in my collection, but by and far the most valuable would be X-men #94 (long-time writer Chris Claremont's first issue on the title), Giant-Size X-men #1 (first appearance Storm, Nightcrawler, and Colossus, and second appearance Wolverine), and New Mutants #98 (first appearance Deadpool). The remaining long boxes contain mostly DC comics; Batman/Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Justice League, etc. And current indie titles I'm pulling, like Scales and Scoundrels, Snot Girl, Paper Girls, etc etc. *(I'm also collecting the IDW My Little Pony series, naturally, but seeing as I was a little late to the game, it's the only thing I will allow myself to collect in trade)
  13. My guess is it'll be something like this, to clean the slate for G5!

    hello I'm new to this site

    Agreed. That is one of the cutest things I've seen in a long time ;3; Anyways, welcome to EqD, @PretendPrawn262! Hope you enjoy your stay here. How long have you been a fan of colorful pones?

    Howdy, I'm Spark!

    Welcome to EqD, Spark! I can't say I was with the fandom from the very beginning, but I have been a brony now for over 3 years, and I finally decided to make an account on here a month or so ago. Hope you're enjoying it here, I have been so far!

    I have Arrived

    I don't dream about ponies often, but when I do, they're almost always about Scootaloo for some reason. She's not even my favorite pony. I guess it must mean something subconsciously. Anyways, welcome to EqD! I hope you'll enjoy your stay here!

    Hello there!

    Sorry to hear that. It's unfortunate to lose anything to circumstances like that, even some old plastic ponies. I certainly understand about running out of room; I collect comic books, and I have about 30 longs boxes (they each fit about 300 comics) and my collection will only continue to grow until I just decide I've had enough of it all and sell them!

    Hello there!

    G1 MLP has been interesting; I've developed a casual interest in it since I've been a fan of G4. Although I enjoy 'My Little Pony and Friends' for the cute and innocent cartoon that it is, I think I may enjoy 'My Little Pony Tales' a little better, as tonally I find it closer to FiM. Did you collect the figures as a kid, and if so, do you still? I've been buying G1s and G3s as I see them (at rummages, antique stores, etc.) but there are a few that I'd love to have in my collection still. Mainly, they're the ponies that Lauren Faust said inspired characters from FiM, but I'd also love a Fizzy. I just like her aesthetic, and she has a pretty cute and doofy personality in the show.

    Hello there!

    Well, you're still young man, you'll figure it out. Sounds like you have a good start in at least learning something practical. I'm assuming there are other skills necessary in what you're learning that you could apply to other fields as well.

    Hello there!

    Welcome back to the herd, @Rapid Miles hope it goes better for you this time around. I've been commenting on EqD and trolling the forums here for a couple weeks now, and it seems to me that the majority of fans are just willing and eager to discuss anything related to pony without getting too riled up. Sure, you'll get the occasional troll, or fan who can't put something in perspective, but all-in-all we seem to be a friendly bunch. Did you and 7th-grade Science Class Kid ever become friends after that incident? It seems you kind of owed him for getting you into the fandom, and if he was blatantly drawing ponies in class, it sounds like he could've used all the friends he could get. What are you studying in college?
  21. Over the years I've accumulated several of the Funko My Little Pony Mystery Mini's. Some have been store bought, some have been rummage sale acquisitions. The only series I've come close to completing is the current Power Ponies (I think it would technically be Series 4). The figure I'm hoping to trade for is the Rainbow Dash as Zapp (if you have any other Mystery Mini's that aren't the ones I've listed as having, or are not the black figures, you can feel free to post as well, I may be interested) Here is the list of figures I currently have, and am willing to trade. Pictures related: Black Twilight Sparkle (Series 2) Black DJ Pon-3 (Series 1) Black Big Mac (Series 2) Discord (Series 2) Black Discord (Series 2) Twilight Sparkle as Masked Matterhorn (Series 4) Fluttershy as Saddle Rager (Series 4) Common Henchpony (Series 4) Rarity as Radiance (Series 4) Please reply to this thread with inquiries, and if we settle on a trade the final transaction can be taken care of in PM's. No longer needing to trade, got the one I'm looking for for my birthday.

    justin new to this

    Hi Justin, welcome to EqD! Hope you'll like it here. A friend of mine who manages a movie theater gave me that poster for my birthday, and I had the privilege of having it signed by Tabitha St. Germain at Ponyville Ciderfest last year. I had it framed and it's in my room; it's one of my most prized possessions! I hope to one day meet the remaining Mane 6 and have them sign it too, as well as possibly Cathy Weseluck!
