Knowing that the animation team is aware of Lyra/Bon Bon and is OKAY with it, making more and more little nods to it being canon, just makes me so happy. No matter how you feel about ponyshipping, I think anyone with a soul can agree that it’s very important for the clueless, bigoted parents of America raising hell about how the gays are confusing their children to see that a healthy homosexual relationship is not threatening to the sensitivity of their precious little angels.
I tough that Mare-do-Well was like Batman the first time i saw it
Anonymous asked: Oh God, condolences on the hiccups. My brother got them for several days while we were at Disney World, and it was an annoyance for all of us but (of course) mainly him. He even threw up the first night. Can't imagine how it is for you.
Eh, you sort of get used to it for a while. One of my friends also hiccups a lot too so it’s just sort of normal. :P the only time it tends to be a nuisance is when it’s a very inappropriate time to hiccup, like during a choir concert, on stage, during a test etc. Because they happen so often and I have had them for so long I don’t even notice when I have them so I have no control over them… and then I get accused of faking it for attention. Dumb. :P
Everything I thought I’d hate about the show have been features I’ve ended up loving. Some examples being: Rarity, since shes the fussiest, prissiest pony I thought she’d annoy me, she’s now my favourite character in the show. The Cutie Mark Crusaders, I’m not usually a fan of kids so I couldn’t see myself liking them, however I now always look forward to their episodes. The songs, the idea of technicolour ponies singing about love and friendship was enough to turn my stomach, however now I find myself humming the songs all day long. Terms like ‘Everypony’ and ‘Somepony’, it’s understandable to think these terms would wear thin very quickly. However I know love them, they really add some originality to the show (not that it really needs anymore than it has) and I’ve had to stop myself saying them in front of my mates. Finally, Derpy. I used to dislike Derpy, however recently, and I’m talking mere weeks ago, I came to realise that it is remarkable how the fandom has fleshed her character out without any help from the show. She’s sort of our symbol, and I can’t help but love her because of them.
I hate it when people think that endlessly spamming memes makes them a fan of the show. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you have to be some beloved content producer, as long as you honestly love the show then you’re a fan. However it seems so many people take to forums and post things like “20% Kewler! lOL Im such a bronie!” It really fucks me off.
I’m not sure if this is true, but I feel like some bronies take Pinkie Pie for granted because she annoys them with her overly buoyant nature. When really I think Pinkie Pie is probably the smartest pony along with Twilight. People may gasp and think this is crazy, but Pinkie has not only defied the laws of physics, but also some stereotypes about how people actually perceive intelligence. When people think of someone like Pinkie Pie they think that someone like her isn’t too smart or wouldn’t be interested in at the prospect of being smart. In the second episode of Friendship is Magic, when Twilight and the others are surrounded by those trees, and Pinkie just laughs it off and goes into her song about facing your fears. Or in Swarm of the Century, when Twilight and the gang basically dismissed Pinkie for just being off the wall as usual. And she proved them wrong, when she in fact knew what the creatures were and was able to get rid of them with no fuss (more or less). And then in Luna Eclipsed, when she kept screaming and running away from NIGHTMA-ahem, I mean Luna. When Twilight confronted her about this, she brushed it off saying, “Pssh. I know that. Sheesh, Twilight, I’m as big as her how’s she gonna gobble me up?” and then with the, “Sometimes it’s just REALLY fun to be scared!” Leading Twilight to come up with the solution to Luna’s dilemma. In a Friend in Deed, when Pinkie goes through that song saying how much it gives her joy just to go out of her way to make other smile, even if it is a bit random. It really was what Twilight said, “Pinkie Pie, you’re a genius!” But, I think Pinkie is more wise, actually. She knows things, but she prefers to keep to what she feels is more important. There’s this quote from a really old movie (Harvey), that I feel applies to Pinkie: “Years ago, my mother used to say to me, ‘In this world, Elwood, you can be oh so so smart or oh so pleasant.’ Well, for years I was smart… I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.” Pinkie is smart, but she also recognizes that to be kind and pleasant is to ultimately be intelligent
Over time, Rainbow Dash has helped me realise my love of running, and I’ve improved loads. So much in fact, that I am now on the school team.
Until ‘Wonderbolt Academy’, I thought Rainbow Dash in season 3 was annoying.
