OH NO NOT THAT
Cheeky Spike vs Smug Twilight
the neverending war of wits
Another episode, another poll.
As usual r8 if it was gr8 or just another b8, m8.
How much purple is required to make a horse a purple?
I was underwhelmed by today's episode. The moral felt really weak to me, since Discord went out and said he was being a dick on purpose.
Then, the Mane 6 laugh at him, and make jokes he'll feel left out on.
It's a collection of un-related flash shorts composed by various flash short artists in the fandom.
If you like stupid little jokes most of them are great. But because of the length you'll probably only watch the whole thing once then just look up the shorts themselves by the artist and watch just their contributions by themselves.
FS I need you to archive the happy Amethyst in the background whenever best quality is available
that is a moment of Spontaneous Happy that happens to ponies and the phenomenon needs to be observed more
That is in fact Sea Swirl anonymous
I like how Berry is taking care of her plants.
They are fun to keep track of anonymous!
Either way that horse will be safely cataloged when the episode is out in decent quality
She is a cute horse when happy
this ep was literally
>I had fun once and it was awful
You're just not supposed to be happy, Anon. It's not for everyone. Like college. Or girlfriends.
>Was Twilight's time well spent?
By her definition of "well spent", yes.
From the point of anyone sane probably not
I like how Lyra and Bon Bon are hanging out by the well again
don't they remember what happened last time
my waifu is perfectly free of hanging out with whoever she wants
being possessive/paranoid would be a terrible thing to do with such social creatures like pones
You can't just invite the well dweller
Its in the spikezilla episode anon go get your dose of derp
and a side order of Junebug while you are at it
Dash a c
you mean "cute"?
>She was in the Nightmare Night episode.
Right, I completely forgot
The worst part is that the original version of that episode was shot a few days after his wife died
She tends to go through dry spells where she is nowhere to be seen for a few eps and then shows back up
I am just glad shes back
thats my own headcanon
makes for a very hilarious situation when it comes to explaining her appearance as a filly The Cutie Pox
Just what kind of madness was she involved in there I wonder
Twilicorn is evil, a little racist and her butt isn't cute
what a well behaved pony, keeping her elbows off the table like a good filly
she's so precious
Can't get over how pretty that pony is sometimes
I loved her right at the start doing the double dialogue.
Jeannies hairstyle is simply da bes
I figured out why it was so funny!
Is this shooped?
SHE NEVER SEES THE SUN
SHE'S ALWAYS ON THE RUN
did everyone enjoy the show today?
I fucking hated the ending. HURR DURR DISCORD DID IT ON PURPOSE ALL ALONG, SEE HE IS BAD!
No, thats fucking stupid. God forbid they give Twilight a small character flaw by just being jealous and acting irrationally FOR ONCE.
Come on seriously whats the message here, if your friends hang out without you then they're purposefully trying to exclude you? Fuck whoever wrote this shit.
Since season two?
Season one was when it was EC.
I remember them saying how much that opened up the show for them switching to TV Y. They no longer had to have a clear moral for every episode and they could get away with slightly more animated violence and lots of other weird FCC problems like name calling.
But why did they have to write it as him doing something bad. Why couldnt it just have been "We hung out without Twilight."
I know he's supposed to be a villain in a kid's show, but come on that ending was just stupid.
Like I said, whats the message they're trying to convey? If your friends hang out with someone they dont like without you, there's some sort of shifty shit going down?
Who fucking thinks like that?
I agree the ending was kind of stupid and it would have been better if Discord hadn't been a dick just to make Twilight feel jealous. I think they were going for him trying to teach Twilight a harsh lesson much like Q like >>25367435 suggested, but the writers just missed the mark a bit.
The same thing they always talk about, I imagine
it must be nice to be spike and be at ass level all day with naked mares
Sweetie is such a lewd little filly
fluttershy is a very punny pony
I already have that horse
what do you "win"?
Once I get to Equestria and have cartoon physics applied to me I'm gonna be the strongest.
I guess I am lucky I got her when she was just gems
screw that balloon pop crap, its rigged as hell
You can go to Equestria, but
you will serve me.
I got scrjewed out of my progress by my phone for no apparent reason so i just had no desire to continue it.
We even finally got our two years delayed update not long ago.
she has a great deal of
the game does tend to be suffering for any of us not on iOS devices
But I still have my progress so as long as there are cute stallions to hoard I shall be there
>It was a ho snake, super deadly
There is Maud Pie too isn't there?
I really don't want to have to do everything from scratch but it's making temptation.
There are lots of horses, including all the pies. Though Limestone and Marble are represented as fillies still.
The most important thing however is that there are good number of background stallions!
>they can't shitpost anymore
Don't get your hopes up.
WE'RE THE PEGASUS CLAN AND WE'RE HERE TO SAY
that part was cute, Dash is such a joker
anyone else catch the little musical motif in the background?
they are the best brother horses
all of the friend horses from The Cutie Map will live there once you acquire them
its like halfway house for horses that used to be equal butts
fillies just choose any pony to be their parent for the day
Why don't you have one?
or human, right?
i could be a good dad to a filly for a day
do you have any experience in having a filly daughteru?
>I need you to drink this potion so you can break the spell discord has put you under!
that's fucking dumb twilight
holy shit who made you princess
how could they actually know they're under a spell
I'm pretty sure the potion is just grape drink
Fare thee well, anonymous
We shall see you again in a few days
we'll shove you back up inside her
someone call the burn unit because twilight just got rekt
I would drink anything that horse gives me.
The Secret of My Excess
If they ever get ponecraft up and running I would totally play horse cubes with MLPG
F I L L Y
Tell me about filly, /co/.
Which filly is your favorite and why?
I like this filly. She actually got pretty good at magic during this season.
There's a server, isn't there? Is anyone playing it?
I really like the mine little pony mod. I like being a little pony doing things, avoiding danger and building myself a nice hole to live in. Grow vegetables, etc. I always consider doing a vegetarian run but usually give up when I need a quick food source or get impatient growing crops.
Sweetie Belle is an exquisite filly.
She's not getting any favorite placement from me, but she is high up there. I like her colors and
rip her squeaks ;_;
You already posted my favorite filly anon!
So I shall post my second favorite instead
Well there was a server for general minecraft but not for the mod with the actual horses and horse races and stuff yet
this felt like a season 1 episode, when they used to learn friendship lessons and write letters to princess celestia
what lessons have the ponies learned lately
Your theory is crazy.
>Their baby is Starlight Glimmer
>She went back in time to... do something
>And take all the cutiemark power from everyone
>Twilight stops her by causing Cadance to have an abortion
Oh god, that would be some amazing plot twist
Skyla actually being Glimmer and fucking around with time travel
I kinda fear that whatever the final might end up being, it will be disappointing because there are too many other crazy fan theories
>You already posted my favorite filly anon!
I'm surprised I don't have more pics of her, but yes, most exquisite.
I WILL TAKE YOU DOWN ANONYMOUS
>You can't make all your past mistakes go away instantly
>conversely, you can't beat yourself up over them
>You have to sacrifice your vision for commercial success
>Even those your highly respect might not be the best of individuals
>Differences should be celebrated, not stamped out
And those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. This season has had the most grounded morals of the whole show.
I like how Discord was still a bit of a dick, but within reasonable levels.
Dude could still do his chaos magic and stuff while entertaining everyone and having fun.
IF IT'S A FIGHT YOU WANT. IT'S A FIGHT YOU'LL GET.
I SUMMON STRONG FILLY. YOU CANNOT WIN.
>I'm surprised I don't have more pics of her,
I am going to require that you correct this wrong.
HEY STRONG FILLY COME HERE I NEED YOU TO ADDRESS THIS LARGE CROWD STRANGE PONIES
Yeah he was ironing out some stuff out last I heard but its been a bit
I could just eat her up
Strong filly ignores your crowd and goes to get her ball, and destroys your base of operation in the process.
Man I would cuddle that little pone forever she's so soft and cute
He's the little 7 year old boy who follows his big sister around everywhere.
A common phenomenon.
The best way to correct this problem is to accept it and disambiguate the favoritism to find your one true favorite.
She may not be a filly, or even a pony, but she's still number one in my heart.
>tfw still got one of the super old kindles where setting a background is just too much effort to bother
Wasn't like 90% of Season 1 Twilight episodes?
She's got to weigh like twenty pounds at the most.
RUNNIN 'ROUND THE FAMILY
WITH A POCKET FULL OF BOOPS
She likes eating ramen noodles for breakfast.
Why is Daniel Ingram so god damn based.
Charismatic, professional, chill as fuck, handsome as fuck, every time they let him loose he produces solid gold.
It'll be way nicer than her sisters
>you smell her butt...it just smells like filly butt
>you're not sure what you were expecting
>too much effort to bother
I made a script that replaces the ads from special offers to pony wallpapers and rotates them randomly each lock.
I could just disable ads and I had it that way earlier, but then I wouldn't see the wallpapers cause I have the magnetic cover and it automatically unlocks when opened. With ads, you have to also slide your finger to unlock.
>too much effort to bother
These are the episodes I would say were chiefly Twilight episodes in Season 1:
Friendship is Magic, part 1 & 2
The Ticket Master
Winter Wrap Up
Feeling Pinkie Keen
Adding in paired and group focus episodes, I'd say Bridle Gossip and Swarm of the Century had a fair bit for Twilight to do, Applebuck Season was about Applejack with Twilight as the sort-of protagonist (against the antagonist that is Applejack's stubborness), A Bird in the Hoof was a Fluttershy focused episode with Twilight playing a major support role. And of course her backstory in The Cutie Mark Chronicles.
That's 6/26 full Twilight episodes (23%), or if you're generous to count the above, that's 11/26 (42% Twilight episodes).
Derpy is an adult pony who does many adult things in her day-to-day routine.
it would be strange to walk in on filly smearing that on her butt
I have Paperwhite 1. Although non-touch editions had completely different software, level of effort needed to setup wallpapers haven't changed much, at least not till Paperwhite.
part of their skull
Indeed. Lyra's butt also smells suspiciously of new filly smell.
Do you think she does it herself, or because Bonbon makes her do it?
Oh, you want us to theorize?
Well, this is from Scare Master. So either way it apparently doesn't deteriorate - duplicate >>25368838
and it's connected to the skull solidly. Whether it's different material, I don't know. Do you think there's a thin layer of skin/coat fuzz? Otherwise their horn either grows a color to match their fur, the show simplifies their designs by not having freaky bone-white horns on all the unicorns, or unicorns have colored skeletons.
Lyra's into it, just a little.
She'd never admit it though.
>He uses a pony OC avatar on Twitter.
I wonder if anyone's drawn porn of it?
Has anyone shown it to him?
...that's an excellent question actually. I want to say "yes" because I have faith in our degeneracy to create such a thing but derpibooru doesn't pull up anything. Unless his OC has a specific name I'm not finding.
Not a bad horse at all
back end of the mane could be a bit frizzier though to match the front
>Paint your nutsack to look like a tennis ball.
>Celestia starts batting at it with her hooves.
and puts it in her mouth.
I wish I was a cute stallion
so I could get belly rubs from EqG Lyro
I feel like you'd get more than that
Being a cute stallion getting belly rubs would be pretty much the best possible outcome and would result in winning the game
You could play a new game of course anon but I would be completely content with that outcome
I forget that stallion x woman is a thing
I know there's barely any of it in this god-forsaken fandom
But it's still the absolute hottest fucking thing and it's a damn shame
The horn itself wasn't bending, the the section where it touches the skull. It could be made of cartilage like material, with the most tension at that point. The horn actually bending was a disease in Cutie Pox
some of the best background horse stallions have been around since episode 1
though its true there are lots of great ones that have been added since
I knew someone was going to theorize on the nature of horns because of what Discord did in this episode.
And I want to shut you down right now by saying that was Discord interacting with the horn. He made it react like that because he wanted it to. It's the same reason Fluttershy turned into a giant orange. Their horns don't actually boing like that.
It's kind of far back on the priority list, but it's there.
Especially when the stallion starts whispering degrading things to the woman.
>"Letting a horse fuck you? God, how fucking degenerate."
>"Your pathetic human vagina can't even fit me in halfway!"
>"It's good to see you inferior species know your place as toys."
But they've boinged like that before
