    I feel like the MLP continuity makes the most sense if you view it through the lens of Twilight aging. Let her be 13 or 14 at the start of the series and somewhere in her mid 20's now that she is a mentor herself. Each season representing a season or two of a year as she matures into an adult. This contradicts the inconsistent age patterns they use in the series, of course. In the actual series, the ponies are all 16 plus or minus 8 as needed for that day's moral. The CMC are even more confusing, being somewhere in between first grade and high school.

    We can try to apply the pattern to the rest of the Mane 6. Rarity matures from a starry eyed artist in her bedroom to a business owner; Rainbow Dash more or less trains for and attains the Olympics; Fluttershy starts...to...date? No, no, that doesn't work. Fluttershy dating Discord is basically a teenage girl mooning over a 50 year old, scuzzy sorcerer. Plus, isn't Pinkie Pie basically aging backwards as her character flanderizes? Pinkie Pie acts about six years old most the time...Also, Applejack is stuck at perpetual 30. As a mature adult with few interpersonal problems, no wonder she sees the least content.

    Okay, well, the pattern works for Twilight at least!

    Hey guys, forgive me for this. I just really need a high quality injection of something upbeat and happy, and ponies usually does the trick.

    Since we're in the Hiatus and content and conversation have died down, how's everyone feel about a round or two of "Share your Favorite Pony Stuff"?



    This is probably still my favorite PMV, even now. By today's standards it's not nearly as flashy or full of effects, but it's still awesome. Plus, it tells an actual story of sorts, which isn't common in PMVs much!

    Anyone else got some favorites, or just any nostalgic content you want to dust off?

    I really miss SoGreatandPowerful musics.

    SoGreatandPowerful was without a doubt one of the best and most unique musicians the community ever saw. I miss their music a whole lot, too.

    I still listen to the Standard Model on the regular.

    Where can I watch the most recent season officially? I know that I missed the entire season, and thus discussion of it, but I would like to catch up at some point. Problem is that Netflix only has half the season, and Hulu's selection is even worse.

    It looks like the Google Play store has the full season six available. I'd expect that iTunes likely has it as well, though I don't use iTunes myself and can't check directly.

    Also, so long as we're doing train remixes!

    I hope everyone is doing OK and that you have lots of love, kindness and acceptance in your lives. Please know you're worth it as well as your own love and kindness.

    Hey, wow. Thanks an absolute ton for this. I mean that in earnest. I don't see this kind of sentiment around the pony communities much anymore. Which makes me rather sad, because unironic, anti-cynical kindness and warmth, and acceptance, are exactly why I got deep into the show to begin with.

    Serious, thanks. May you find the same!

    Heck yeah! I managed to snag both of those, plus the Discord, over the holidays. The Discord is particularly awesome.

    There are a bunch of other Guardians of Harmony series figurines, too. Spike is a full fledged dragon. Chrysalis has... wheels, for some reason?

    I believe IDW's basing the next MLP Annual around the GoH line so big dragon and changeling wheels may get an explanation of sorts.

    I found InkPotts' channel when I Know Those Eyes was released, and have been obsessing over their videos and the entire soundtrack from the musical since.

    The Count of Monte Cristo Musical for the curious. 5 videos so far, with the final (The Man I Used To Be) now in development.

  • TetraNitroCubaneTetraNitroCubane Registered User regular
    Ooooh, on the topic of Guardians of Harmony and Chrysalis, they just revealed a new design to be released soon:

    Much more in keeping with the Celestia and Nightmare Moon they've already released.

    I've been fortunate enough to have had a LOT of good people in my life. While I'm not always as good a person as I wish I could be I feel it would be disrespectful to everyone who's ever been kind to me to not to my best to do the same for others. I see the generosity and acceptance in the brony fandom and want to help add to that. I also have a lot of LGBT folk in my life (I myself am pan and one of my partners is trans/ftm). I see how difficult it is for them to deal with this world due to all the hate and misunderstanding. I want to help make this world a more loving place. They are so worth that.

    Maybe I'm too idealistic sometimes but I want to help make this world a kinder more accepting loving place. Maybe MLP:FiM and shows like Steven Universe won't save the world but I honestly think they're helping make it at least a little better. That's part of why I love FIM so much. That and because I identify with Rainbow and Pinkie a lot. ^//^

    At any rate thank you again for your words because they mean so much.

    Rumor is that the initial issues of Legends of Magic are a tie-in with Season 7 somehow, which is pretty neat, if true. The comic's supposed to be much more about lore and backstory than anything else we've gotten, which in my opinion is cause for excitement.

    Wait, this thing's up to Season 7 already?

    That's the traditional Star Trek limit.

    Six seasons finished, seventh season confirmed incoming, and a (pony) movie set to debut near the end of this year.

    (With four other movies already out, if you count the Equestria Girls ones).

    It's pretty prolific, to be honest. I'm amazed at the density of conventions that are still going strong. I would've thought those would've died down by now, at the very least.

    Looks like Season 7 will arrive in April!
    While they haven't released any kind of official press release yet, and dates and times can and do change, as far as we are concerned, it looks like April is our month for new pony this year!

    Seems about right, considering the last two seasons. Some are speculating Easter once again. Here's to hoping!

    Hello! You have my attention

    Edit: oh wait. You meant an actual pony robot. Not a giant robot patterned after twilight sparkle.

    I am so disappointed, now.

    Tons of new information out today. I'll link to some EqD articles, which seem to consolidate the information reasonably enough. Some spoilers may be within the links, so be forewarned.

    Toyfair is still ongoing, so there's likely to be more information over the next few days. Hasbro really seem to be making a marketing Blitz for the movie right now. Rumor is that a trailer was shown at the Toyfair, but it hasn't been released online yet.
