Isn't Applejack the silly pony?
Very silly. :)

I just saw Midnight Castle, which inspired a few characters from this show. I totally think they should have Tirek as a villain.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

Ah, memories... I grew up with this.  Good times.

And they can't use Tirek.  Copyright issues.

From what I heard a lot of characters were copyrighted.

Still, they could just make a parody or homage character and call it that.

Ditto...I still have my ponies from when I was a wee little girl. :D

Unfortunately, I don't think they CAN, according to Faust (so I've heard) and Thiessen (at BroNYcon September).  It edges too close in terms of characterization to qualify as fair use or even an homage.

Are you saying we should call on the sea ponies?

AAAAGH! Death and fire from the sky! Run for your lives because death has come! Hiding is useless for they will find you with their huge and adorable eyes! And then they eat you.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I had to watch it a second time, because I was too busy laughing too hard the first time.

Yay~

His rainbows around like a dove

And then make-believe with you

That is hilarious. It's even funnier because it is Fluttershy.

Am I the only one that thought actually playing that could make Fluttershy the scariest thing out there. I mean the constant “yay”s alone would haunt my dreams. Almost ranks up there with the Miniblins’ “Dek dek dek” from Wind Waker.

So while others have popped up both in the featured and the vote page, my philosiraptor just sits there, not getting any other exposure than the limited exposure it can get here and in a small FB group.  *sigh*  I would share it other ways, but I'd really appreciate it if they didn't just totally ignore it.

Sorry, B-Man, but I have no idea what it takes to actually get on the vote page.

Okay, so I have a question.  I can understand Memebase going all spoiler on our asses, but why did EqD post a picture of Pinkie that's apparently a spoiler for this Saturday with this whole "I Love Lucy" tribute thingy?

Grr.  Fuck spoilers. D:<
