Season 9 Discussion Thread Anon 03/03/2019 (Sun) 22:42:35 [Preview] No. 3583 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Ladies and gentlecolts! The final season of the legendary animated pony series from the 2010s is here!

The 4th generation of this franchise: My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic! This wild entertaining ride is actually ending!

The 9th season premieres on April and we´d better get ready to die (like Andrew W.K would say) because the last 26 episodes are coming this year, including the Rainbow Roadtrip special.

Any discussion, reflections, thoughts, theories, speculations... basically anything related to the episodes goes here.

You all know the deal. Like the old tradition for weddings: talk now or shut up forever before the nostalgia comes into your heads.

Links for streaming the upcoming episodes:

Congratulations for reaching the end of this generation and let´s try to enjoy the pony material left as much as we can!

Episode 200 review!
I loved this episode.

Okay. I don't know where to start. I couldn't believe all they managed to put in there. Feels like I'd have to watch it several times to get all the callbacks gags and jokes. The plot though was very good to Spike. I loved the plot twist with Luna and Spike as it actually caught me off guard . Heck, the whole Spike moral caught me off guard. It was very nice and elevated the episode above raw fan service. I think this episode maybe of a higher quality than episode 100, but I'm not 100% sure on that till I check out 100 again. Probably draw down to how I judge raw quality vs pure fun and gratuitous fan service. Only minor complaint I ca muster at this time is Spike ripping the balloon, but than again they have endangered themselves far worse and ponies in canon are pretty durable. Also wonder if some of the concepts presented will never get brought up, but hey that's hardly counts as criticism of the episode.

Lightning round:
I liked the Castle Sweet Castle callback.
Applecord I guess is no longer the name of a certain obscure ship.
Royal Guard really sucks. Don't they?
Use of Queen Chrysalis old thrown pleases me greatly, even as a minor element. (And I sort of did that in my Revolution Fic!)
I honestly wonder the specifics of Shining Armour's relationship with the royal guard now. They described him as the former Captain but he sure is often there still isn't he?
I don't know how Celestia mobilized the Royal Guard in the Sombera timeline from the season 5 title to oppose him that well with the royal guards still being incompetent this season and Sombera being show to be able to destroy the freaking elements.
Spike and Luna working together may add a fair bit of fuel for some final season shipping or freindshipping. Sometimes moments like this go nowhere though with the later seasons as oppose to the first 4 do to there being so much going on and other elements having been hammered in so much that single episodes and lines have less impact at times, but it could still be something the fandom runs with.

This is one of those episodes that maybe in a year I could either love even more or perhaps be slightly critical toward but still like. Though right now?
9.7.5/10!

>I loved this episode.
well, that sums up everything. Roll credits folks! jk.

>I couldn't believe all they managed to put in there.
well, you sure will appreciate it much more whenever you read the tweets and how the actresses brought their ideas for the story and how the writers compiled them cohesively. Unlike the chaos from episode 100, this one was a fanservice from the VA team.

>I loved the plot twist with Luna and Spike as it actually caught me off guard
everyone was actually surprised.We may be pretty late in the ride and you would think that MLP would never challenge the intellect from adult fans and get to impress anybody because of its predictability. Well, it turns out that we were wrong, MLP CAN bring surprises and pull off a great 4D chess plot twist from two characters that kind of felt overshadowed by others: Luna feeling like she is there but not doing anything important and Spike doesn´t always get all the credit that the mane 6 receive.

That strategy was genuinely a bold move I must say. If somebody tells out there that MLP is predicable, that person definitely hasn´t checked this episode.

>the whole Spike moral caught me off guard
I kind of saw that when he drew the stars and had as much interest in that crown as Twilight did. Just that he hid pretty well that he created a 3rd faction by pretending to be a player inside Twilight´s team.

>I think this episode maybe of a higher quality than episode 100, but I'm not 100% sure on that till I check out 100 again.
I have only watched it once but it controlled much more the fanservice.

>I honestly wonder the specifics of Shining Armour's relationship with the royal guard now. They described him as the former Captain but he sure is often there still isn't he?
I mean, he was the former Captain of the royal guard before A Canterlot Wedding and The Crystal Empire happened (being his debut episodes by the way) and he´s been used to marshaling since his debut despite the changes of his armies.
I suppose that he has a better deal and get to be more interpenetrated with the Empire ones and this shows....

because despite having lots of guards in Canterlot, they sure are incompetent under any leadership. He had to rely on himself by hiding behind the throne. A cheap move for redeeming his strategy.
I suppose he was the former Captain because Flash Magnus applied to that job around season 8? I don´t know.

>I don't know how Celestia mobilized the Royal Guard in the Sombra timeline from the season 5 title to oppose him that well with the royal guards still being incompetent this season and Sombra being show to be able to destroy the freaking elements.
they must have trained harder than they do in this timeline. Also, you are not taking into account that the Pie family and Rainbow Dash joined the army and showed their skills for the battle. About Sombra destroying the elements...I don´t know but they didn´t think about this back in 2015 nor in bringing hum back to life for this timeline. FiM is wildly known for rewriting their own ideas and twist them for the next episodes and what you say sounds like a de facto plot hole that have created themselves over time.

>Spike and Luna working together may add a fair bit of fuel for some final season shipping or freindshipping.
they did a story between this two in the comics that didn´t go all that well. However this episode paid off that duo and while the fuel may be nonsensical, it´s funny to think that both Rarity and Luna are voiced by Tabitha.

>Sometimes moments like this go nowhere though with the later seasons as oppose to the first 4 do to there being so much going on and other elements having been hammered in so much that single episodes and lines have less impact at times, but it could still be something the fandom runs with.
that period happened once. It´s really hard for something to pay off and achieve a great popularity among the fanbase without relying on what the show does. Not even the movie has managed to get that much of an impact, not even an ancient character (who would scream hype for lore) like Starswirl or a villain like Daybreaker can manage to have an impact.
With that said, I do believe that they are going to have a little bit of fun and underestimate them less for the next episodes. These two needed to shine a bit, especially Luna.

This episode makes me a little more hopeful for the season.
MLP is not out of ideas yet.

>it´s Pinkie Pie, don´t question it.
That's why it's only a minor complaint at most. Still, I could understand feeling a little off with it.

>they fired Zephyr Breeze for being incompetent but that´s relatively speaking, because they don´t do their services much better. The fanbase asked if Celestia was truly incompetent (in the first seasons) but I think that her guards are less reliable than the Team Rocket capturing a Pikachu for 2 decades.
This

>well, it seems that you are applying to be a seer. And yeah, I was quite surprised that they have used it for their own advantage.
It'd be cool if they have it actually part of the defenses in some way in the future but I doubt it. Still fun to see in concept even if it was only for an episode.

>I suppose he was the former Captain because Flash Magnus applied to that job around season 8? I don´t know.
I suppose one would have to try to look at the relenship between the Crystal Empire and Equestria as a whole. Though like you point out here, a fuzzy lack of info over a true answer, even for a good guess.

And now for my more traditional celebration of such a milestone. Congratulations /endpone/ for defying our expectations once again. Will we make to 5000? Maybe, but it's best not to think about it. We have already gone so far beyond what anyone of us would have thought over a year ago. I'd say I'm going to just rid out and chill for the final season. We will see how many we have by then.

To be fair I'm not rushing it. Just I have five potential projects that are from my casual browsing. Even if I can't complete the research quickly me merely starting it and entering what I find on /go/ could be a fair bit of posts though it won't be a burden on me much because I'm used to checking random things out of habit.

>that´s not saying much though. I have it pretty well organized if we count only the pics I save on the PC. As for the mobile folders with the edits, that´s another story.

TBH, I don't know what it is. I have more intent behind it than a mere joke, but for me to follow through would have been behaving pretty confusingly. It's an itch that I want to scratch in some form however.

>that doesn´t require so much mystery. Derpimods having a mental breakdown on their meta decisions is almost a tradition that barely surprises anyone at this point. I guess that happened because of requests from sensible users that didn´t want to have any negative reception towards their own work.
I really need to pay better attention to them. Perhaps I'll find more. Though I'm not sure my questioning of them woull fit into /go/ being a place for records over "editorial" content, if we want to go that route.

>about that topic, yeah, this is probably the strangest event that one can report from their practices.
I reread it and still scratch my head. It doesn't even seem like that major of an issue if they were worried if the other show would take over FiM. It still wouldn't make sense to ban it outright with the broad criteria they themselves set but the BS excuses and saying the other company was shady and rip offs were bad, that really is what bugs me, and confuses me as well.

>I had...
Stick it to the MAN.

As for Luna, did she through a drunken party and set Canterlot on fire just to mess with her sister and Shining?
Now I can't put it past her.

I didn't post that song,I had thought that you did. I have more interest on sharing something else than posting what we all know,especially with a description for it.

>I wounder if some of these post are different anons or there is an unknown 4th occasional lurker who just stops sometimes. Nice choice in song btw.
Considering the amount of posts that we have reached so far,it's no wonder that one could easily have a little bit of interest in checking what is going on over here. More than 4000 posts and getting into the top in an almost permanent state.

Any speculation could be valid.

>I am feeling a bit of apathy these last two days. Yes, even if I should be hyped for season 9, I have no expectations for it and it has come as simply more content to speak rather than the main material to be circlejerking about for now.
I had that feel during season 7 premiere actually, I just felt like I was going through the motions. It was busy around that time and it just felt like another stressful thing I had to keep track with, so I think I can get that.

>I will have to reinvent myself and recover the right attitude
>(maybe the efforts of trying to be original and interesting all the time have made their effects as well)
I'd say especially on the second, anon. You have talked before of your pressure on your posts, though not recently. Remember, don't let it be a burden. Even if it means you fully can't reply or just shitpost. If there is any advice I can give is to simply not sweat it. Take a few days, just chill and get through the day to day and reevaluate from there how ya feel. Don't worry about posting, don't worry about being a negative or trying to force positivity. If ya don't feel like watching right away thats fine too
On top of that, don't think "the first thing I gotta do when I get back is review the fic and the show" that'll just make it a stress on your mind, you'll review it when ya feel like it and besides that was a prototype anyway.
Besides, with what I know about your schooling that is a pain itself.

until you get to watch an opener like season 9´s one and you feel the magic all over again. Every prejudice is gone after giving the show another try.

>I'd say especially on the second, anon. You have talked before of your pressure on your posts, though not recently. with what I know about your schooling that is a pain itself.
yeah, you mentioned that I made an effort for the image editing thread and it´s true that I have wanted to express way more than I usually offer. I fear a little bit of getting too repetitive so I try to go a little bit further. I suppose that ambition has a price for what it´s worth.

[/spoiler] Yeah, I read these lines back on Sunday and I decided to take a break save for posting a few nice images on Tuesday I think. I have been active for these two days so the things stay a little bit fresh and alive. The stressful period of the lab sessions is gone. I will say I still don´t promise anything and that´s why it feels like I am box full of surprises. But I am fine, thanks for thinking about me. [/spoiler]

I have watched it, twice in fact. My problem is not with the show, the show will stay, it has made its memories. That will never change. About your fic, I don´t know when I will make it justice but I will say that I had a good experience while reading it, the concept of Cadencebat is much more defined, it was a more plausible story for this franchise, much more straightforward and less chaotic than the revolution fic. There it is, taken with a general perspective. There are a few questions but for a prototype, it seems that the main sketches have already been made. Congratulations for defining her so clearly. If the review doesn´t come, at least, these words are posted for you to see.

And that is wise. Because if ya promise ya only have pressure to deliver and the pressure prevents you from being spontaneous with random things you may just want to do over the course of the day and random post for fun.

Welcome to Golden Oaks! Sit back and get /confy/ and dive into the vast amounts of data across the web that has been generated by the MLP fandom.

What is Golden Oaks?
Golden Oaks isn't quite sure exactly how to define itself yet. It is devoted to a rather nebulous topic of the fandom itself with an archival mindset. It will vary from as diverse subjects as academic research done on the fandom to even the discussion of old dead pony memes and trends past and present. With perhaps some self reflection as well.

What is Golden Oaks not?
Golden Oaks is not for the simple dissuasion of the latest scandal within the fandom or gossip about X. These subjects maybe relevant at times in the discussion of certain happenings and periods within the fandom, but the thread itself shouldn't dive into drama without reason.

What is this place?
This is the endchan's pony board. While we are microscopic we have regular posting and a somewhat distinct culture as can be with 3 anons and the occasional drifter . /go/ welcomes outside contributions. Feel free to look around.

Yep I saw. Though some of this maybe do to people avoiding spoilers the mlpforums had 800 users online at the time compared to reddits 200 I wonder how that compares to the pillars? I've always been a bit discounting for there.

Other notes:
There is a few small /pone/ and /semi-pone-related/ places I need to check on 8chan and considering what happened I probably should do it soon just in case
I found this place from an accidental misspelling of a search.

well, MLP Forums is by excellence the social media for the EQD side of the fandom. You can start to worry a little bit if that shite doesn´t show any activity at all.

>I wonder how that compares to the pillars? I've always been a bit discounting for there.
they are reaching the 80k user mark, some of them are dead or multiple accounts but yeah, they are managing to get a consistent level of activity over time. They won´t beat the main pillars but it´s not something you can look down at so easily.

>A very inactive yet young Equestria Daily alternative. Most recent post in september of last year and the oldest being in 2017. Random and intermittent posting that appears to go on hiatus for months from what I can tell.
let´s see if there is more activity for this season. I should mention that the site combines Spanish articles with English ones and if you check its Twitter´s profile, you will check out that this site has been made by a Mexican. Basically, it´s an independent blog that I think compiles Latin videos that would come from equestrianet.org and American sources.

The most active era was around early 2018 and only had an active period in September.

Been going through the Ponychan circlejerk trying to figure out a chronological timeline of important events for /go/ archival. Man this banner of their's is way too descriptive for their own good. Frankly I wanna cover only essential details for archival purposes and try to keep petty non site effecting drama out of it... the lines maybe quite blurry on that, but I'll post more detail later.

well,folks. These are the posts that one should stop and appreciate them for a little bit inside your heads. Out of all the reactions that you could get, these are the most valuable because nobody in this fandom actually expected to see the end a few years ago and now, we are living in an era in which MLP is causing nostalgia before it ends.

It seems that it has earned some kind of respect over the years...and for very solid reasons.

Just stop and think about all those people whose lives were dedicated to the MLP fandom and now, they are looking back at it with eyes as if that was a precious past. From an explosion for memes and porn....to this...

What have we all done here?

>looking through a recent mlp related post that went semi-viral there had a lot of comments that really seemed to go with what we've always said with the fandom over there.
we have talked about so many things. I mean, we have posted like the holy bible and pretty long posts in these nearly 4k messages. It should be interesting to watch, at least as a personal reminder.

>>3941
>this banner of their's is way too descriptive for their own good
really?top kek. You cannot literally go full drama mode all the time. It´s impossible to do that, even /mlp/ has gotten sick of doomposting at certain periods. That must come from the site itself and its users. Otherwise, I cannot imagine how the show provides drama for those posts unless they nitpick every single thing that appears on the episodes.

PRINCESS CELESTIA OFFICIAL /END/ THREAD

Like a phoenix, she gets revived until the end of our days. The first princess to appear into this generation, the first princess who started the wild ride back in December 2017 and the one who will see our paths ending.

Call her majesty, call her princess, call her mentor of harmony, call her troll or just call her Celestia. She is raising the sun everyday, always there to shine in front of us with loyalty.

This is the first official thread dedicated to her. Post any pics, greens or content related about her (her sister is welcome as well) by following these two rules:

1.One image per post if possible so we appreciate any picture of her more than posting them all at once.
2. Always follow this line:

=PRAISE THE SUN==

And so, a new thread, a new day begins...

There is literally nothing wrong with being a centrist. Sure, there are a few setbacks, but every ideology has them.
I'm sure my centrist bros would agree, somewhat. I may be wrong though.

The most twisted and distorted thread of /endpone/ is here!
This is a place where the images shown are not real, your eyes will be tricked to no end and you´ll see how the surreal world conquers your view of those images that you had seen before.
The brony fandom was originally the combination of /co/+ /b/. The /co/ part is that this thread focuses on pony images. However, the /b/ side of this follows the same famous line that its original board shows: "Anything posted here are autistic works of fiction, only a fool would take them seriously." This means that nothing here actually exists but another version of that fictional material and only naive people would see them as fresh original content. Don´t worry, the actual images will be posted (not always together) for drawing comparisons and notice the details between them.

Let me sum it up by quoting these lyrics:

>Truth is false and logic lost
>Now the fourth dimension is crossed
>You have entered the twilight zone
>Beyond this world strange things are known
>Use the key, unlock the door
>See what your fate might have in store
>Come explore your dreams' creation
>Enter this world of imagination

The Twilight Zone by Rush (1976).

by using the flaws from the mobile app, I believe that your picture about Candy was way more exploitable than one would have expected...

>I actually made it after th fic though.
yeah, I know, it´s just that it simply looks like it could perfectly fit for whatever you have planned with her.

>Though for future Bat Cadence appearances that is a path I could take.
yeah, even if it´s taken to a derivative edition from the original picture, as long as it puts the reader into that concept and translates decently what you want, that should be enough.

>Now this is good. My asset is still a bit amateurish but now looks both purposeful and creepy in its own way.
yeah thanks. I doubted for a while about its brightness and I had to decide among 5 editions and decide which one should make the cut. I have other versions of her (more red colored and with less brightness) and I can post them as well.

The main thing about it was making your drawing a little bit more complex with the flaws and give her a little bit of a bat feeling. I simply pressed my finger a couple of times inside the wing and the contours of her body were transferred to the inside of the main wing. Adding more sharpness, a partial color wash and the little adjustments made with the PC, turned out to this product. I haven´t made a chaotic edit that would make the cut for a good while.

It´s not like the first time I do this with your pictures.

also I am posting pictures I have found out there on Derpi

they are unedited and I simply leave them here so if anyone feels inspired at editing them, they could serve for future material.

Just like the Candy edit >>3817(which seems that you have liked it a lot)

And there it is. The fic that I've been tensing for the last month or so is finally out there. I overall have mixed but more positive feelings than the last one. Their are several things going on with this fic and a few details of its creation that I'll explain at a later time along with my replies. See ya around endpone!

Well, this fic I am mostly pleased with. Partly as a finished product, partly as a stepping stone. It ain't perfect but I feel very good compared to where it started as a purely mechanical exercise like the first one. When I decided to put Cadence in I didn't originally foresee how she's change the atmosphere. Her charisma and confidence are a more developed state than the first fic that's for sure. I see her as a wise guide, though perhaps a little morally gray . She felt Apple Bloom's distress from robbing the fields every night and perhaps just decided to take a peak. There was a second version of this though that I may reuse later that would involved another character and a debate on several different things but it felt chunky compared to Bat Cadence's chrisma and fear, which had a straightforward dynamic that I think works better for this one.

As for the images. I specifically had envisioned that with what I could draw it look good for a possibly creepy dream child like dream story, with using normal images from derpibooru for the parts back in real life. Several sets of images where made but the one problem that I constantly faced was Cadence's lackluster appearance at times. Her slender body I couldn't manage, at least with the hardware I have now. I originally had it ready to post a fair bit eariler. Notice how most of the pictures are numbered till the end? I had taken the what I considered to be the best from all the image sets and numbered them in order of use for minimal confusion for posting, yet I backed out because I decided I still didn't like the Cadences. The Cadence pic I used for most of the her appearances in some edited forms was actually a prototype asset that is from another ongoing project that I've been working on. She wasn't perfect but she fit hear perfectly and was better than the others you showed her true potential in the edit thread though So I just used that pic in various quick edits and figured it already went well with the mix of styles anyway. There is still plenty I think I could've done better but I think I still managed to achieve an atmosphere with them so I can't complain.

Bat Cadence is far from dead.

I know it's not fair that I do this but sometimes I think good quality images are not going to be eternal. Someday we will arrive to Deviantart core quality and we all know what that means.

However,I can solve a little bit their colours. It's artificial yes but at least,those edits make it pleasant to the eye and serve to post something between the good ones. These two have like 10 upvotes or so and I am putting in the thumbnail which ones are edited.I can link them perfectly though.

I am not a fan of uploading things on Derpit but like this picture and Flurry´s one, it really picks you up and see it on practice.

yeah, I could comment about that one instantly. I get why you are attracted to the edgy one but despite having its touch, it doesn´t drive me 100% to convey that edgy feeling. It feels somewhat subtle in comparison to the other two edits.

>The wrinkles look muscular and masculine don't they?
eeyup. Basically that.
>Wonder if I could remove some of the feminine futures to make it fully work?
I suppose that there is no wrong way to fantasize and try to make an attempt on it. It feels like you are watching a serious face from video game characters. Adult Link or a few japanese characters with that filter because of the lack of horsey characteristics.

>Would the change's intent be immediately noticeable to anyone beside myself? Maybe. It just is an edit for an edit's sake.

Yeah I guess I get that. The others are more... intense and expressive I suppose. This one lack of brightness could be a little dull and dreary in comparison.

>it comes from those irradiating pixels that came from the screens of the TV.
It does!

>>3758
Would you like to go a descriptive rout and get one of the better edits and original pictures and place them side by side? Would you say there is any edit that clicks or feels just right to you that you just like to use in the OP solo?

I like Iceblue Crash. Which is what I randomly name the edit of that Rainbow Dash pic. It looks nicer as a OC though I wouldn't say there was too much wrong with the picture. Just average decent tier.

now, those people fearful of oceans because of sharks and big creatures in the depths. How wrong those plebs were, ponies were the sirens chants that make the environment dangerous from the very beginning.

>The others are more... intense and expressive I suppose. This one lack of brightness could be a little dull and dreary in comparison.
exactly that.

>It does!
either it´s due to the filter or the oversaturation of a certain effect/adjustment.

>Would you like to go a descriptive rout and get one of the better edits and original pictures and place them side by side?
either showing the products alone or doing that method. I am basically compiling them and putting them in the front as a greatest hits from these edits. Not all of them work but simply a selection of what we have offered here. I thought about not including any description and then letting the viewer to ask why it happened before the info comes but a little description can come with them perfectly (or quoting the post of its explanation from this thread)

>Would you say there is any edit that clicks or feels just right to you that you just like to use in the OP solo?
I am certainly torn about it. The one edit that I still hold in high regard is this one >>1822 and it certainly represents how twisted and artificial the edits can get, to the point where you are in an artificial land that will lead us into chaos or imprecise imagery.

That´s my first but any other can work so I am asking to you before I do anything (not to mention that it feels kind of selfish). I could also include any edit that speaks for itself and came from you like >>1868, >>2496, >>2649 and >>3735.
