Little green army-man syndromeAddendum: I recommend reading the comments, which represent a wide variety of viewpoints and interesting thoughts. I may not agree with all of them, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth airing or hearing.
To date I generally have refrained from commenting on pony episodes, but I'm making an exception for "Wonderbolts Academy". This isn't a review, exactly, nor is it an overview, exactly—but it does contain elements of both.
Along with a couple of local friends I was mildly disappointed by the story, for reasons summed up in this post's title. That phrase is my private nickname for the funhouse-mirror treatment of military organizations by civilian scriptwriters who have little or no knowledge or understanding of how and why they work. Instead those authors create caricatures that would not look out of place on a playground littered with small plastic molded toy soldiers. It is so pervasive in the entertainment industry as to be endlessly grating, especially to one whose fathe
. . . And then there were poniesA phenomenon I've noticed both here on Deviantart and on Furaffinity has generated much good-natured amusement in our household. The script runs something like this:
BloodWolf666, InvisibleNinjaMan, MisunderstoodAngryTeen, Black-Clad-Goth or similar over-the-top handle has a gallery full of violent, fetishy, angstful, or otherwise not-family-friendly content, perhaps stretching back years.
Then, abruptly, there are ponies. Ponies everywhere. Ponies possibly entirely displacing all other content. Nearly always it is possible to pinpoint the month when the new pony overlords take control; often it is possible to pinpoint the exact date.
That candy-colored magical ponies have this astonishing power to uplift the human spirit is, in my view, a wonderful thing. It does raise an understanding smile, though, to see these hard-boiled or trying-to-be-hard-boiled personalities so completely won over.
Getting Back On Your Hooves Ch. 1
Chapter 1 'Unexpected Encounter"
by Kendell2 and Raikou Artist
"Well, it's nice to be back in Canterlot; so much has changed!" Twilight said as she continued walking, excitement in her voice. Sure, she'd been here a few times since she'd moved to Ponyville, but this was really the first time she'd been there just to relax and reconnect with her roots, as opposed to a party or being called to save the world from an ancient evil that escaped its prison. She remembered Rarity's friendship report after Twilight's birthday; don't be ashamed of your roots. That's what had compelled her to come do a little reconnecting with where she'd come from. "Isn't that right, Spike Spike?" she asked, looking back at her assistant to see him falling quite far behind.
Spike panted, struggling to keep up. "Yeah, Twilight," he panted, stopping to catch his breath. "Can I... Can I please ride on your back?" he asked, unable to keep up with the excited Unicorn mare. "I know you're excited, but I can onl
Nopony pays attention to magic colourAN: This parody of "A Canterlot Wedding" follows on from my longer fic, "Another Kind of Magic", where Trixie and Twilight grew up together as Celestia's pupils.
“But… but…” Twilight stuttered. “Don’t any of you believe me?” She looked pleadingly around at the rest of the Elements. “Not one?”
“Of course not!” Trixie said, loudly. “Trixie could not possibly believe that Mi Amore Cadenza, who congratulated her so after her award-winning performance at the school play the first year she knew Twilight, could be evil!”
Twilight blinked, despair giving way to confusion. “But-“
“Silence!” Trixie turned her nose up. “Trixie will hear no more of your lies. Good day.”
The azure mare flounced off.
“See, dear?” Rarity said. “You’re the only one who’s confused. I understand, it’s hard, because you feel like she’s taking your brother away, but-
How Equestria Was MadePony Land was dying. Megan referred to it as Narnia; always winter but never Christmas for the seasons had stopped changing but unlike Narnia, where the sun had still rose, the sun of Pony Land no longer made it above the horizon.
With the exception of Megan and her siblings, all the humans had left Pony Land for more hospitable lands, as well as the Grundles and the Bushwoolies and a few other creatures the ponies have met over the years. The only other non-pony that seemed to remain was Spike, no longer a baby dragon but rather a young adult and twice the size of the other ponies, stayed and used his breath to keep the ponies warm as they huddled together in the biggest room of Paradise Estate. The baby ponies and the expecting Twilight were instructed to stay snuggled close to the dragon's side as the others did their best to scavenge for what little food and unfrozen water remained.
When the sun did not rise for a second day, Megan and a few of the ponies made the trek to the Mooch
The Mane 6 Discuss SP3"Twilight broke out into loud, painful sobs into the small dragon's shoulder, her hooves holding him as close as she could."
"Well girls, what did you think of this one?" Twilight (the designated reader) asked as she turned away from her laptop to look at her friends who were all currently lounging around Fluttershy's comfy cottage interior.
"I think you're being a total crybaby, Twilight." Rainbow Dash mocked, laughing at Twilight's fictional breakdown. Flying to the center of the room, she struck a purposefully overdone dramatic pose, and, as melodramatically as possible, moaned, "OH NO! It was ALIVE!" Dash threw her forelegs and towards the sky, her head following as she yelled the word alive. "But now it is DEAD!" At the word dead, she took own an exaggerated droopy posture. "I, Twilight Sparkle, egghead extraordinaire, HAVE KILLED IT! Oh, woe is me, I am a horrible, TERRIBLE, pony! Oh, this is just the WORST. POSSIBLE. THING!"
"I'm never going to hear the end of that, aren'
My Date With RaritySecond Date--Two weeks after the Fluttershy disaster
This will also be done in transcript form.
The door to the Soothing Stone opens by the magic of two unicorns on staff. In coming are Chris and Rarity on a date.
Given the formal setting, Chris is wearing a mid-level tuxedo, sweating at returning to this nuclear test zone. Rarity is wearing a blue dress, not as fancy as her Grand Galloping Gala, but the diamonds of many colors highlighting it still make an impression.
Chris: Why here...why here....
Rarity: Oh, you shouldn't be so nervous, Chris. I'm sure nopony remembers that date you had with...(eyes twitching)...Fluttershy...
Chris: I think everybody at that occasion is also here....oh no...
The staff and ponies seated all turn to view the new arrivees. They call give Chris varying angry, cold stares.
Rarity: They're only doing that because they don't know the gentleman in you. (whispering) I hope...
They are given a booth table, and they take their seats. Chris takes a napkin and w
Letter to Rainbow DashRainbow Dash, I can't blame you for what you did.
You were, you are and you always will be the holder of Element of Loyalty.
Some ponies keep blaming you of betrayal. But they forget (or just don`t know) the second part of the deal.
You saw your home, Cloudsdale, was about to crumble. Could you stay idly by and take no actions? No you could not.
Your friends would have understood that if you told them about it. They would knew you are not abandoning them. But, sadly, there was no time for that.
I do understand what and why have you done. But let us never speak of this again. You need to relax. Go get some sleep and tomorrow everything will be back to normal.
Flutters with Wolves Chapter 3Chapter 3
Fluttershy looked around, desperately trying to find a place to hide Winston. She decided to put him back in the place where she found him: right back under the quilt.
"Fluttershy?" Twilight called from the other side of the door. "May I come in? Hello~?"
"C-come in, Twilight," Fluttershy gestured.
Twilight and Spike entered the cottage and gasped at the mess within.
"Whoa!" Spike exclaimed. "Did a tornado hit this place?"
"Oh, it's nothing," Fluttershy said. "Just a little mess. You know how err rascally weasels can be."
"I guess," Twilight said. "Well, here. Let me and Spike help you clean up."
"Uh, no thank you, Twilight," Fluttershy said. "That's not necessary. I can handle this."
"That's nonsense," said Twilight. "Do you hear yourself, Fluttershy? You're starting to sound just like Applejack."
Fluttershy chewed her bottom lip as Twiligh
EHL Pt 8.5- All Star Adventure
Equestria Hockey League Part 8.5 All-Star Adventure
It was day one of EHL All-Star Weekend. Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash were excited to leave Ponyville behind for a small vacation and to mingle with the greatest the EHL had to offer. Since all the festivities were being held in Canterlot this year, Twilight and Rainbow were transported by a royal chariot to the capitol city. When their chariot landed, they were met by EHL Commissioner Gary Bettpony and the rest of the EHL executives. The royal palace was adorned in multiple banners and decorations. Each EHL team had their logo emblazoned on a banner as well as a magical floating portrait of their all-star selections. Twilight and Rainbow squealed excitedly when they saw their massive photo shot floating above the Golden Leafs' banner. As the all-star Golden Leafs trotted on toward the palace, a trumpet fanfare from the royal guards blared out, announcing their arrival.
As they approached the royal
