  1. Starlight Glimmer, since I can relate to her so much and I've just liked her development in season 6. It used to be Twilight for the longest time. From when I became a brony back in October 2011 all the way to September 2016, Twilight had been my favorite pony. It was only after Every Little Thing She Does aired that I realized that Starlight had become my favorite pony.

    Who has the most influence on EQD?

    Even if there are some people on EqD who have some amount of influence, in the end Calpain and Seth always have the last word.

    There are a lot of brony songs I really like, but my all-time favorite brony song will always be this one: It was released only around two days before I started watching the show and it always fills me with a sense of nostalgia for the early days of the fandom.
  4. That's an interesting question. That was way back in October 2011 for me, so I'm struggling to remember which song it was exactly. It can't have been Tombstone's Discord remix since that was only released in January 2012. I'm pretty sure it was Alex S.'s Cutie Mark Crusaders Song Remix. I'm not completely sure when that was released and unfortunately I can't look it up since Alex S. deleted his old videos and only later reuploaded them again. Still, I'm pretty sure that happened to be the first brony song I ever heard. Another likely candidate is Glaze's Beyond Her Garden, which was released almost at the same time as I became a brony. And how did I react? Well, I liked it. It also happened to be the first dubstep song I ever heard, so I guess that introduced me to that genre. After that, I started listening to more and more brony songs over the years. As for Beyond Her Garden, it still remains my favorite brony song to this day.
  5. I wonder if what we're going to see of Starlight in the EqG specials is the reformed version or the pre-reformed version. Or maybe the entire special will be focused on her being reformed somehow. In any case, I'm looking forward to finally seeing her in EqG.

    Songs in the movie

    I've always loved Daniel Ingram's work, so I'm very much looking forward to what he has cooked up for the movie. I'm sure he's given it the best he's ever had.
  7. I'm looking forward to the S7 premiere from what I've seen so far. I don't have high hopes for Flurry of Emotions, but I still hope it will be good. Rock Solid Friendship sounds cool as well, even though I think Maud becomes less interesting the more we see of her, since there's really not that much to her once you get tired of her "emotionless" shtick.
  8. The forums are already clearly advertised on the right side of the screen. I'm not sure if an extra forum tab is all that necessary. I certainly wouldn't mind it being introduced, though.

    SFW Kid friendly anytime soon?

    EqD has already been made SFW enough as it is. The comments are much more child-friendly than YouTube comments could ever hope of being and children nowadays spend a lot of time on YouTube anyway. There is nothing objectionable whatsoever about what EqD posts and in the very few instances that saucy content is even posted, it's clearly labeled as such.

    What's Your Least Favorite Comic Arc/Issue?

    I will have to say it's Siege of the Crystal Empire. It was an ambitious story arc, but it just didn't work. Especially the ending was disappointing, but it already started with the first issue. They shouldn't have taken some minor antagonists from the show and made them into outright villains. This was especially jarring with Iron Will, who was never that bad in the first place and even had a comic focused on him that pretty much redeemed him. Radiant Hope's character wasn't all that appealing and her motivations were unclear. She was smart enough to rally all those "minor antagonists", but as soon as Sombra appeared, she immediately became helpless and incompetent. The entire relationship between Radiant Hope and Sombra came off as terribly cheesy and I'm saying that even though I liked Fiendship is Magic #1. And when the Umbrum appeared they really lost me. I didn't like certain other arcs, such as Reflections and The Good, The Bad and The Ponies, but Siege of the Crystal Empire dared to take Sombra and reform him in the worst possible way. Say what you want about Starlight's reformation, but it wasn't even nearly as ridiculous as what happened to Sombra in that comic arc. It was just truly disappointing.

    The MLP Fandom

    I don't know about that. I think early fans are exactly the ones who are the most opposed to EqG. Don't forget that Faust herself was opposed to that idea.

    what was your first MLP fanfic

    I'm pretty sure My Little Dashie was not only the first MLP fanfic, but also the first fanfic overall I've ever read. I'm pretty sure I then went on to read Past Sins as the first longer fanfic and the second fanfic I've read.

    Do you like Sunset Shimmer?

    She's my favorite character of the EqG franchise, to the point that I wish we could see her in FiM. She was a pretty bad villain in EqG 1, but as soon as Rainbow Rocks came along, she became much more interesting. I especially love the "My Past Is Not Today" music video.

    How often do you watch the show live?

    I always watch the new episodes on a livestream whenever it's actually possible for me. It happens only rarely that I'm unable to watch it live, but then I will always watch it no less than an hour after it has aired. I've been keeping this up since Luna Eclipsed, which was the first episode I watched live. In the five years that I've been a part of this fandom, it has never happened that I had to watch the new episode on Sunday or even later. I was always able to watch it on the day it aired. As for which livestream I use: I watched the first few episodes on Haxmega's stream before switching to Bronystate for May The Best Pet Win, I believe. I was on Bronystate when Derpy spoke in The Last Round-Up, which was definitely a lot of fun. Just watching the reactions was amazing. A few times, I also watched the episode with a few others streams, such as Spazz's stream or Xyro's stream back in the day. It was Bronystate for 90% of the episodes, though.

    Would you drop everything and be a pony?!

    I would do it in a heartbeat, especially if I get to be a unicorn. I would never look back. Even if I get to be a female pony. Even if I get to be a human in Equestria. It would all be worth it. I would sell my soul for the opportunity to meet the Mane 6, especially Twilight.

    Twilight Sparkle/Sci-Twi Fan Club

    Yeah, her humility is one of the things I admire most about her.

    The MLP Fandom

    I am well aware of the fandom's origins. I still have the original /co/ threads saved on my computer. But I agree with you there. The fandom may have started on 4chan, but it soon picked up a more mainstream audience, especially thanks to Equestria Daily, which was created by Seth, who frequented /co/ back then.

    Top 5 Personal Episodes

    1. Pinkie Pride What can I say? I just can't see anything wrong this this episode! The songs are perfect, Weird Al is perfect as Cheese Sandwich, the conflict of the episode is great, the humor is great. It's the only episode I'd give a 10/10 because I can't find a single flaw with it! 2. The Cutie Mark Chronicles Each of the Mane 6's cutie marks stories is highly interesting and gives us more information on their backstories. I'm personally very fond of Twilight's cutie mark story, but all the other stories are great as well. It spent several years as my top favorite episode and I used to think that nothing could ever top this. However, Pinkie Pride is now my favorite episode because no matter how much I love The Cutie Mark Chronicles, I can still find a few flaws with it, such as Fluttershy's ridiculously cheesy song and a few cheesy moments towards the end. 3. Crusaders of the Lost Mark Who would have expected this to be the episode where the CMC get their cutie marks? I sure didn't. In fact, I went in expecting just another boring CMC episode and boy was I wrong! The songs were amazing, especially the last one. Was Diamond Tiara's reformation rushed? Yeah, it was a bit. Which is why it's only my third favorite episode. Still, I absolutely adore this episode! 4. Return of Harmony The best two-parter in my opinion. Discord just is very entertaining and yet very devious here. There are some emotional moments and the Discorded versions of the Mane 6 are hilarious to watch. I just don't like this quite as much as the other episodes I mentioned here. That's why it's my fourth favorite episode(s). 5. Party of One It's the episode where Pinkie was revealed to be much more than a flat character who's just "fun fun fun" all the time. She has self-doubts. She is afraid of losing her friends. And her breakdown is definitely one of the best moments in the entire series. That's why this is my fifth favorite episode. I think judging by what I've said here, you can definitely see why Pinkie is my second favorite character in the show. Ironically, despite Twilight being my favorite character, I tend to enjoy Pinkie's episodes more.

    Twilight Sparkle/Sci-Twi Fan Club

    Purple Smart is best pony. I can identify myself with her like with no other fictional character I have ever seen. She's always been my favorite from the day I started watching the show. I love her adorkable nature.

    The MLP Fandom

    Yeah, I think I see what you mean. I'm not sure whether there are more younger fans now than before, though. The younger fans have always been present.

    Lack on interest on the rest of season 6

    I've never been less hyped about new episodes as I am now. I still try to watch them on a livestream whenever I can, though. It's just that I don't care that much anymore. Still, I hope The Fault In Our Cutie Marks will be as good as I hope.

    The MLP Fandom

    The fandom is not dying. It's just reached a sort of plateau phase. It's neither growing nor decreasing in size, in my opinion. That was bound to happen at some point. There was no way it could just have kept growing indefinitely.
  25. I would personally consider season 6 to be the second weakest of the show, but I still think season 3 was worse. There are just too many mediocre or just "okay" episodes, but good episodes like The Saddle Row Review make it still better than season 3, which had only Sleepless in Ponyville and Magic Duel as really good episodes, in my opinion.
